Yes! Although it is not that important for me to download a
precompiled version, I think for the most people it would make it

As described in my 8MB-mod-page http://www.uwe-freese.de/rockbox/8mb_ram_en.html
- a modified firmware/app.lds (for recorder)
and firmware/player.lds (for player)
The new ones could be called
apps_8mb.lds and player_8mb.lds
- "Integration" in the tools/configure script somehow (so that the
Makefile uses it if the user selects a 8MB version)
- modified firmware/mpeg.c
(The bad thing is that it only works properly with this dynamic dma
buffer thing Gerald Clark gave me and that was not needed for a
usual 2MB AJB. I didn't care that my mpeg.c is much different to the
mpeg.c in CVS. But if we add the code for a 8MB modified JB, one should
probably try to decrease the number of different lines.)
DS> Is the link control file ok for example?
What is this file? Is it the .lds file? As described, we need two
additional files for the 8MB version.
