Check out 'rockbox' from SVN (or extract a downloaded archive). $ svn co svn://svn.rockbox.org/rockbox/trunk rockbox or $ tar xjf rockbox.tar.bz2 2. Create a build directory, preferably in the same directory as the firmware/ and apps/ directories. This is where all generated files will be written. $ cd rockbox $ mkdir build $ cd build 3. Make sure you have sh/arm/m68k-elf-gcc and siblings in the PATH. Make sure that you have 'perl' in your PATH too. Your gcc cross compiler needs to be a particular version depending on what player you are compiling for. These can be acquired with the rockboxdev.sh script in the /tools/ folder of the source, or will have been included if you've installed one of the toolchains or development environments provided at http://www.rockbox.org/ $ which sh-elf-gcc $ which perl 4. In your build directory, run the 'tools/configure' script and enter what target you want to build for and if you want a debug version or not (and a few more questions). It'll prompt you. The debug version is for making a gdb version out of it. It is only useful if you run gdb towards your target Archos. $ ../tools/configure 5. *ploink*. Now you have got a Makefile generated for you. 6. Run 'make' and soon the necessary pieces from the firmware and the apps directories have been compiled, linked and scrambled for you. $ make $ make zip 7. unzip the rockbox.zip on your music player, reboot it and *smile*. If you want to build for more than one target, just create several build directories and create a setup for each target: $ mkdir build-fmrecorder $ cd build-fmrecorder $ ../tools/configure $ mkdir build-player $ cd build-player $ ../tools/configure Questions anyone? Ask on the mailing list. We'll be happy to help you!
