I'm running Ubuntu (11.04) and Banshee (up-to-date from the Banshee Team ppa), and I have a 1st gen iPod Touch (version 3.1.3 7E18).
Up until now I've synced and managed the iPod using my MacBook Pro. However, my music collection has begun to outgrow the MacBook's disk space, so I've been considering my alternatives...
What I've been thinking of doing is moving my entire music collection to my Ubuntu box - which has a much larger hard-drive - and using Banshee to manage my music and sync it to my iPod.
However, I would still like to install and manage Apps on my iPod too, so I presume I will still need to connect the iPod to iTunes on the MacBook occasionally too.
So I guess my question is: is it possible to use Ubuntu Banshee to manage music on my iPod and Mac iTunes to manage apps on it, without the two conflicting or otherwise messing up the contents of the iPod?
(And if so, any suggestions about what options to use in either bits of software would be much appreciated. For example, in iTunes will I need to set music syncing to "manual"?)
Thanks in advance,
