EphPod

Post by kovax » Mon Nov 06, 2006 8:19 am

I have downloaded Ephpod and have it installed via CrossOver Office/ Wine. This software is for use of the iPod under Linux. I am running red hat 9. (2.4.20-8)
When i go to confugure it is ask me for the path/ drive letter for my iPod.
My question is how do I assign a drive letter for Linux?

Thanks

Linux doesn't use drive letters. I think what you really mean to ask is how do you assign a drive letter in wine. Drive letters in wine are configured in the wine configuration file:

If you have CrossOver office then you should have support (since you paid for it). That would probably be the best place to get advice for wine/windows programs.

just as an aside, why is a program which is an interface between Linux and an iPod running under wine/crossover? if it's for linux, it'd be more sensible to have native binaries, no?

also, again just offtopic, and out of my own curiosity, why red hat 9 when there are many newer versions (of fedora or other more modern systems)?

just curious...

Although the title of the ephpod homepage claims it is "for Windows (and Linux)", Linux isn't mentioned anywhere on the site at all. Additionally, the program is kinda unstable and doesn't completely support the 5thGen iPods. Sorry, but this is not a program I would install. gtkpod is free and runs natively in Linux. My take on the whole wine/crossover deal is that you should save it for Windows programs that you absolutely must have, and absolutely cannot accept any substitutes for.

As for using RH9, some companies stuck with it - they didn't want to deal with RHEL or Fedora. Considering how stable Fedora has proven to be, it may seem kinda silly now, but some people like to stick to what they know.

MoR, have you ever used gtkpod?
And if yes, what does Amarok do better?
