Rhythmbox which is available on Fedora. via yum install rhythmbox.
Amarok is another.

The only way you're gonna update the firmware on that is to actually use iPod Updater on PC or Mac. Really though, there's not that many reasons to update the firmware every two or three months. If you mean update songs, any of the above will work.

You got me there, there should. That would require that Apple make the decision to either release or make iPod Updater more open, but it would be nice.

amorok handles ipods once you got the itunes stuff configured on the ipod perfectly!

Amarok is pretty nice, and I've gotten nearly all the kinks worked out so my iPod is working almost as well as it does when using a Mac or Windows with both Amarok and gtkpod. However, there is still no iPod Update for Fedora, or Linux. Nor will there ever be IMHO, which is fine.

I just found it odd that an ipod shuffle wouldnt work out of the box in linux. apple really SHOULD support linux users since even they went to freebsd for the backend of they're own OS. linux DOES run on all mac hardware ..

Apple doesnt sell Operating Systems primarly. they're more into the entire system market.. and by being that way.. I think they should suck up some pride and build some kinda app for the linux market that'll work with itunes. hey. they might even sell some mp3s with it.

mp3tunes.com... Check it out, seems legit. Small subscription fee, WAY more open than iTunes music store. Who needs a port of crappy iTunes when Amarok and gtkpod just get better every day and online music services start to understand that i don't want proprietary formats!
