How I got my music library transferred from my Mac to my Linux box, thereby allowing me to fully switch to Linux. This is a problem I've been neglecting for a while that has been keeping me tethered to iTunes whenever I want to hear my music. This probably isn't the best or simplest solution, but it's how I felt comfortable doing it.

Thanks Alpha32,

I never bothered to put any music on my Macbook Pro, but I've got a ton of archived podcasts on there I could transfer over to my external storage.
Thanks for the tip.

Out of curiosity (I have never used a Mac): why do you need root to copy your own files?

PS: to copy a file with space in the name, either escape the space with a preceeding backslash or enclose it in quotes.
