How to use your Apple iPod in Fedora

Because of the proprietary nature of iPod, it can be difficult to use it on your Linux platform without guidance. Unfortunately, Apple has not (and has never announced plans to) release a Linux version of iTunes, and iTunes is not yet stable through Wine. Luckily, there are several high-quality tools available for Linux users to manage media content on the iPod. Among them are gtk-pod, YamiPod, and tools built into media players such as AmaroK, Rhythmbox, and Banshee.
