Title: to owners of 160GB disks (and up), here's howto fully use them
Post by: [IDC]Dragon on December 21, 2006, 01:29:16 PM
Hello,

thanks to a subsidy by fellow Thomas Kobler I'm now a proud owner of a 160GB disk instead of the originally planned 120GB. (Hey, why the extra expense for only 17GB extra I can use with the existing 137 GB limit...) So I was bribed to support larger disks with Rockbox.

Since yesterday Rockbox can use LBA48 when compiled for it. Together with the multi-partition capability (another compile time option) we can use the >137 GB part of large disks.

Archos Recorder v1:
I m looking for compile firmware of a big disk >137gb. I searched in patch and  I have a full ram compiling error with profile enable. I wait we can configure this choice or sometimes update the pre compiled files.
I use the 31 of december firmware for big disk it's so right.

I have prepared some builds, so you can use it "out of the box". Wiki has been updated, visit above link again please.
Title: Compilling error

Thank you to solve this little problem so quickly. I have new so little one, and don't know if it's my softwares(VMware debian3). When I write the two line in config-recorder.h Make says : "region flash is full". It works anyway  I suppose it's the archos flash file which doesn't work.
My recorder works with the two partitons on 20070114 flashed firmware!!!
