Hey everyone in the backtrack community, this is probably the most unique question ever asked for bt. I am attempting to get "iTunes" on backtrack for internet use on a lan, you know similarly to windows, uses a USB connection to pass along the traffic, and the phone is used through iTunes as a personal hotspot. I also know that I can broadcast this from the phone but id much rather do it over the USB for security. Anyone know something?
I don't think it's a good idea to run ITunes on GNU/Linux. You have a lot of opensource softwares that now handle ipod and iphone. And if you succesfully install ITunes on GNU/Linux I'm not sure you'll be able to connect to your phone through the phone.
This is an Archlinux Wiki, but they explain which softwares you need to install and how to connect to your Phone through the usb cable.
It sounds like there are two issues going on here.
Because iTunes has not been compiled for linux operating systems, you will need to use an emulator program. The most popular being 'wine'
iTunes currently has a 'garbage' rating for wine.
However that begs two questions
