Original iPod Shuffle – on Linux

That’s right, I’ve finally found a way to use my old 512mb Shuffle on Linux. Thanks to keyj for making a simple python script in 2006. How it works is you put whatever you want for mp3s onto the shuffle (after mounting it in linux) then move the python script onto the root of the ipod. Then run the script in terminal after navigating to the root of the mounted iPod:

$ python rebuild_db.py

Here is a link to the python file on sourceforge.

Thank you internet!
