Ubuntu Lucid - transfer music files to iPhone iOS4 from Rhythmbox

iOS4 support is still limited on GNU/Linux at this point.

1. Rhythmbox sees the iPhone, and can transfer files to it, but doesn't update the iPhones database, so the iPod app doesn't see the music files.

- The cause is that libgpod doesn't support iOS4 yet (July 11, 2010).

Says to delete something from your iPhone with Rhythmbox, and the database will update and pick up the new files.
