It seems to install properly untill i need to get the tarball, and then when the tarball is unzipped it doesnt make the desired directory....but instead just a folder of the name of the tarball, with a folder with the name of the tarball in that, and then a lot of folders such as apps, fonts, and all that stuff. Can anyone help me?
it is not a dev kit, it is just the source tree.
You must install the cross compiler to build rockbox. it is documented
on the website.
note that the linux instructions work for cygwin also. (I use it)
