Follow-up iPod nano question?

Hi All,

I have a 4G nano due in the mail and I have been preparing to use it with arch.  I had a previous basic question and got great answers. 

My new question is related to its initial use.  I have read that many first use it with a Windows box so that iTunes converts the hfs file system to vfat.  A few others have indicted that they have enabled hfs support in the kernel and used the iPod out of the box.  Does anyone here have experience with the issue?  If keeping hfs is an option, which kernel modules are needed and are they available in the stock kernel?

Thanks
Kevin

Re: Follow-up iPod nano question?

I have used a few ipods with linux, but i used them with windows first because it only took about 5min. for me to name my ipod and all that through iTunes, so i would reccomend doing it that way and then sync your music using gtkPod in linux..

Re: Follow-up iPod nano question?

my ipod nano came preinstalled with a fat32 filesystem, so I would assume that most would.

But you dont need to convert it if you use ArchCK, as I have included HFS+ support.

Mine came formatted as HFS+ and I use it fine with ArchCK smile
