Title: help on install
Post by: anon696 on December 30, 2008, 03:46:58 AM
sup everyone. well, this is my first of hopefully many great visits to RockBox forums. so, i just got my F40 and the first thing i tried to do after trying it out is download Rockbox! so, i unpacked it and tried to run it and got an error that i was missing "mingwm10.dll".
so, what does that mean? am i missing something here? i would love to get some help so that i can install Rockbox asap! im so anxious to try it out. any help is appreciated. thnx!

Unfortunately, RbUtil is broken at the moment.

Like bascule said, RBUtil is broken at the moment.

I suggest that you arm yourself with the manual (http://download.rockbox.org/manual/rockbox-gigabeatf/rockbox-build.html), and try for a manual install instead.
