After hearing about it on FLOSS weekly, I installed rockbox just fine on my 5G iPod (30 gig). It boots into Rockbox fine, and I can do all sorts of things like play games, change themes, change settings, etc.
One thing I can't do is play music.
When I go to Database, it says, "Database is not ready" so I push Select to initialize it. It finds roughly 1100 songs, then it stops and says,
"Data abort at 0004DA64 (0)"
I have tried a current build and the stable build. I tried installing first under Ubuntu Hardy x64, the error had a different number, but everything else was the same. Now I have tried it under windows, in case it was the older version of the RockBox utility that was responsible.
So, what's going on?
I'm going to spin-rite the ipod and see if that helps.
