Usually takes them a little while to catch up with support for the latest models. Should tell you on their website.

Well I tried installing Linux on the iPod and not knowing what gen I had it didn't work. The bootloader started up but froze up. Come to find out I have the 5.5 gen iPod that is not compatible for the iPod Linux since it uses a different CPU. Maybe after a few months some one will port it over.

I got Linux on my iPod now. Well it dual boots the Apple OS and Linux that uses Podzilla GUI.

The 5.5 has a different CPU to the 5G? Interesting...
