Mount 3rd Gen Ipod Touch in Slackware

November 21st, 2011 | Posted by admin in Linux

Iv been bored of playing with debian and debian based distro’s. So i took the plunge to try Slackware. I have tried it in the past but always failed miserably to get a usable machine.

Then i had to create the usbmux user –

useradd -u 233 -g plugdev -d /dev/null -s /bin/false usbmux

Then i had to create a directory to mount it to…

mkdir  ~/ipod

Then, as root type –


Now all you should need to do to mount it is

ifuse ~/ipod


What you need to remember, that for every session, as root, you need to type “usbmuxd”
