iPhone / iPod Touch on Exherbo

Filed under: Exherbo — ingmarv @ 4:07 pm

So, a few days ago, the linux-iphone-dev team announced that syncing an iPhone or iPod Touch is possible under Linux.

I just finished packaging the usbmuxd, libiphone, ifuse stack, and now my iPhone finally mounts over usb. No more messing with sshfs, just to sync a few songs with gtkpod (Amarok, where’s my libgpod support?). Pictures are accessible in Dolphin. And this all works without having to jailbreak it. 🙂

Packages are now available in ::hardware, tested on my iPhone and on Anders‘ second gen iPod Touch.

Nailing moving targets — KDE trunk on Exherbo

Filed under: Exherbo,KDE — ingmarv @ 11:43 pm

So, I’ve finally committed KDE scm exhereses to Exherbo. For a while, I’ve had these ready in a local repository, I just never got around to cleaning them up a bit and committing them. Last week I bought an Asus EEE PC. After I installed Exherbo on it using paludis binaries, I wanted to try KDE’s shiny new plasma-netbook shell, which is cooking in trunk. What more reason do you need to finish KDE scm exhereses. 😉

So sync ::kde, unmask them & enjoy.

Problems? Join #exherbo-kde & let us know! If you hadn’t already, now’s as good a time as any to follow up on our call for more KDE minions. 🙂

Ingmar, the Eeexherbo dev who will spend the rest of the week adding the letter E eeeverywhere to annoy non-EEEPC owners. 😛
