    I know ipodlinux.org is down, but I'm looking for the installer. I can't find one.
    This website does not help.
    I don't want to build one, because I've tried to no avail, and I don't want to use ZeroSlackr either.
    Help?

    Ipod Linux is way out of date, but I found this site that might help
    Try Rockbox. It's Linux based, always updated and has way more features.

    RockBox didn't work. It wouldn't even start up.
    Besides, I was looking forward to iPodMAME

    The website I put said you could do it on Nano 4g, but I wasn't sure.
    Also, the RockBox installer on my computer didn't work. I didn't even get to the installer
    EDIT: That link you gave me was one of the sites I tried. But, you have to build an installer, which I don't understand too well

    Stick with Rock Box. Rock Box is Linux based and it's the best. iPod Linux sucks hard core. I mean it really sucks.
    You don't have to bother iwth the rockbox installer just do a manual install

    There is a port in the works for ipod nano 4g, but hasn't been released fully.
    As well Rockbox will not work on any Nano, other than the 1st and 2nd gen nano.
    Sorry no one will be able to help you at this moment.

    It's not going to work on your ipod. There is no port to it yet. You need to buy an older ipod or another MP3 player on their list.
    Or wait a few years for the port to be made/finished.

    Listen, all I wanted to get was the installer. And Rockbox will not start in my computer. I tried to run the exe, but it doesn't load.

    Earth to DTER IC, I have WinXP.
    I tried run as, and it only works from there. Even though I am an admin, I still have to do that.
    Oh well, I have 4g nano so too bad for me
