- Greets all,
I got a slug a couple of weeks ago, now have it up and going with
OpenSlug running cups, mt-daapd (streaming to a roku soundbridge) and
samba shares. What a great little gadget.
I was pondering the idea of trying to get the slug to do my ipod
management for me. What I was hoping to accomplish is get the slug to
download my podcasts automatically using a daily cron job, then have
it so I can plug in my ipod, update it, then grab it and go.
As far as software, I think I can probably use Perl scripts that are
1. To download the podcasts:
2. To update the ipod:
The rest, as far as I can tell, would be scripting the downloads and
the hotplug script to mount the drive, do the update and then 'eject'
Just wondering if anyone else has done something similar and/or if
anyone would be interested in hashing out details with me. I'm
reasonably new to Linux, so this might be a touch ambitious!
