Is there anybody out there who as synced his iPhone with Linux? I am looking for a tool similar to jpilot for Palm. So far I have not found a software that will sync the content (specially Address Book and Calendar) with my Gentoo-Linux .
Any help is greatly appreciated.

my.funambol.com has sync for addressbook working.
Looks like more to come.
great music site for the iphone: http://seeqpod.net/iphone you can also build a playlist on the main site http://www.seeqpod.net and it shows up on the iphone instantly
my.funambol.com is indeed an interesting option! Thank you for that hint. Unfortunately it is in Beta-Testing Mode still. But lets see what will come next and when we can sync our calendars.
Ok, I synced but: The notes to the contacts are not being synced. Also there is no space for several Email-Addresses. But the Sync worked.
Have a look at http://wayetender.spawnpoint.com/post/1162/Sync_iPod-iPhone_Calendar_on_Linux for syncing the calendar.
Thank you for the link. I’ll check it out. Also curious if it works with jpilot!
I have at least a perl script working to transform the iphone addressbook into a mysql database. The sync does not work yet. Actions are ongoing. Feel free to help 🙂
Thank you for that hint! Have you ever tried to work together with jpilot? http://www.jpilot.org/ is a superb sync-solutions for Palm and it is 100% Open-Source. You may be able to hook up with the developer and integrate an iPhone Sync there as well.
have you tried out jpilot?
Yes, I am using jpilot to sync my palm but jpilot does not sync to the iPhone.
I just bought an iPhone 3G but I cannot activate it. I downloaded wine to installe iTunes 801 but it doesn’t install that iTunes for me. So I am wondering if there is any alternative to iTunes. Can I activate without iTunes?
Sorry not possible; or only possible in Hong Kong where they sell the 3G iPhone without contract.
i’ve written a sample script, using korn shell, to write a vcard record to the iphone’s addressbook. details are at http://pwp.att.net/p/PWP-logic010001.
I’ve written a command-line script that lets you copy photos to the iPhone so they show up in “Camera” and “Photo” apps, you can check it out at:
(It’s free to use.)
I’ve written a howto set up a funambol server and easily sync iphone contacts (and calender and notes, if the device is jailbroken) over the network.
has any one tried XP as guest on VirtualBox on Linux (fedora 13)? It can handle palmone desktop on XP (as guest OS). The latest virtualBox handle USB well on guest OS.
