Fresh Install Modifications
- Configure wireless
# sudo emacs /etc/network/interfaces # Add this: (Also add post-up/down to wired interface) # Wireless auto eth1 iface eth1 inet dhcp wpa-conf /<path-to-file>/<config-file>.conf post-up /usr/sbin/ipmasq post-down /usr/sbin/ipmasq # sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
- Install ssh package (via synaptic)
- Configure keys in '.ssh'
- Install emacs package (might need to refresh package list first)
- Install ipmasq package (still required in Gutsy?)
- Install samba package (Note: '/etc/samba/smb.conf' exists even if samba isn't installed. If samba is installed then '/etc/init.d/samba' will exist.)
- Configure Samba:
## (1) Put this in in '/etc/samba/smb.conf' [<share name>] path = /<path>/<to>/<be>/<shared> available = yes browsable = yes #public = yes public = no #writable = no writable = yes ## (2) Add a samba user sudo smbpasswd -a <existing_linux_username> sudo /etc/init.d/samba reload
Using 1st Generation Mac Formatted (hfs+) iPod Nano Update (2008-02-29)
Nautilus seems to run gnome-mount which seems to recognise, but not automount the device. Manually mounting and unmounting from Nautilus works.
Issue: gPodder truncates Podcasts on an iPod to one hour / 60 minutes
After uploading podcasts from gPodder to an iPod all Podcasts are truncated to 1 hour in length. The solution (in most cases) is to install python-pymad which will determine the track length accurately. More recent versions of gPodder use a default of 3 hours rather than 1 hour.
