Write to HFSPlus Formatted iPod From Linux (Ubuntu)

If you have an ipod which was formatted in iTunes for OSX, it will most likely be formatted with the HFSPlus filesystem with journalling enabled. Ubuntu, by default can write to HFSPlus, but only if journalling is disabled. To write to your iPod, you will need to issue the following command from within the terminal in OSX...
diskutil disableJournal /Volumes/NAME-OF-IPOD
