I see that Apple no longer supports libgpod for the iPhone4/iPod Touch 4 and Nano 6G. I see also that the system of databases for those new device has to be the same.

I found many videos where you can see libimobiledevice works well with iPhone but none about the "new" Nano 6G and I couldn't get it to work - unlike my old Nano 1G that does.

It's normal that the Nano 6G doesn't work?

Is there a way, including with commercial programs, to sync my iPod Nano 6G under Linux (without dualboot or VM)?

I'm running Fedora 16 x64.

Get Spotify (the program, whether or not you actually use the streaming music is up to you).

Yes, I know I sound like a corporate sock. It does sync the 6G, though, and it works almost flawlessly for that.
