Captivate firmware upgrade to Froyo from Linux

Is there any way of upgrading the firmware on my Galaxy S Captivate using Linux? I am a Linux user and do not own any Windows based computers. I have tried using Kies on two different Windows 7 computers owned by friends, but to no avail, and so I would like to get this upgrade working using my own computers. Thanks for the help!

Unforunately the only way to update your device to 2.2 is through the Samsung Kies software. In addition to this the Samsung Kies software is ONLY available for Windows computers.

 

So in short it's not possible.

 

Cheers

I had the same issue, I don't own a Windoze machine, only Macs. I had to use a friends laptop to update. 😞
