Amarok has issues with iPhone but works with the older iPod devices.

The basics are above:

Use Rythmbox to upload music to the iPhone
Install/Use WindowsXP running in VirtualBox to do the management tasks as well
as transferring videos to your iPhone. Install iTunes on your virtual WindowsXP. 
Do not use the latest version from Apple as it crashes WindowsXP running on
VirtualBox. Use version 9.0.2 which you can download from
