Rhythmbox never had support for synchronization to an ipod, so I'm not
really sure what you are attempting to do and why it doesn't work. I
regularly use my ipod with 3 different linux distros (2 on the same
computer, one on a totally different computer) to add new songs to it
and never encountered the kind of problems you describe.

That's not what I meant. I suggested to use sound-juicer to *check* if
everything is setup properly (ie if your computer can encode to mp3).
Once this is done, rhythmbox should be able to transparently convert
from flac to mp3 with no intervention from you. This worked for me the
few times I mistakenly ripped to ogg instead of mp3 and was wondering
why the copy to the ipod was taking so long (rb was transcoding the
oggs to mp3s).
