The title says it all but to expand a bit; I upgraded to fedora 17 from a fresh install. On f16, I had an issue mounting when they had the issue with the lockdown, but I was able to resolve that. Seems like a different mounting issue is occurring, although this time, no error messages even pop up to give me an indication on where to begin. I believe I have all the necessary libraries (ifuse, gtkpod, libimobiledevice, gfvs, etc..)

relevant info from dmesg:

Per the bugzilla for this issue, there is a comment saying that the 1.0.8-2.fc17 has the fix in it. However, until this fix is pushed, you can fix it by editing: lib/udev/rules.d/85-usbmuxd.rules

and changing: OWNER="usbmux" to OWNER="usbmuxd"

and this solved it for me.

Don't crosspost: you posted the same question in Super User. –  Renan May 31 '12 at 15:06
    
@Renan I felt this was a more appropriate forum. I did already go back a delete it though... –  OnResolve May 31 '12 at 15:11
    
After you plug in the device does dmesg indicate that the system 'sees' the device? –  Tim May 31 '12 at 15:49
    
@Tim It appears so-- for brevity sake, I tried to omit what didn't look related. –  OnResolve May 31 '12 at 15:55

@Tim Yes, sorry I didn't make it more clear.I'm a not as strong in *nix environment as I'd like to be--but I was used to plugging my phone in and having it mounted automatically. –  OnResolve May 31 '12 at 17:52

There's a bug in the usbmuxd package, details see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=815491

comment #2 had the solution; I've updated my question to contain the details of the fix. Great find! –  OnResolve Jun 1 '12 at 13:01

When the system is not verbose about attaching a new USB device, you can always check the output of dmesg to see if the attached new USB device being detected.

For accessing the storage on an IOS device, you will need the gtkpod-aac package (That is it's name in Debian/Ubuntu), other distros may use a different name.

See this TechRepublic article, has some good hints: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/opensource/how-do-i-connect-an-apple-ipod-to-an-ubuntu-linux-pc/217

seeing the result of my dmesg, it appear that it's "connected". Taking it a step further I how would I go about mounting it? –  OnResolve May 31 '12 at 18:07
    
Check out the updates in my answer. Hope it helps! –  Tim May 31 '12 at 18:50
    
Thanks for the suggestion! Unfortunately, i have gtkpod already installed :( –  OnResolve May 31 '12 at 19:03
