Thanks again Daniel. At present what I'm interested in is knowing
whether it would be possible for Rockbox to work on the Mini~DAB or is
there anything which would be likely to make it not possible.
More details about the product can be found at

Rockbox only runs on the models to which it has already been crafted to
run on. We mention the currently supported models first on the rockbox
web site front page.
Making it run on new targets is a lot of work for every new model and
not something that is easily done by anyone. Unless of course the new
model is only a very minor variation of an already supported player.
There is some progress on ports to other players, but we can't estimate
when they are mature enough to be counted as "working" or even be sure
that they ever will be.
I've not heard nor seen anyone mention any Rockbox work for the Oono
MiniDAB, not even any early research work. Don't hold your breath! ;-)
