I'm not familiar with Rockbox development on Cygwin, but Cygwin 1.7 is
rather new and as far as I noticed that release had some bigger
changes. I wouldn't be surprised if binaries for Cygwin 1.5 aren't
compatible with Cygwin 1.7 -- and the binaries on the Rockbox website
are definitely too old to be suitable for 1.7. But perhaps it's just
some configuration file that changed instead.
Thanks. If anyone has any idea how I can get around this even if it means manually putting everything together, or an alternative that does not require a linux installation, I'd be grateful. Just bear in mind I'm still learning the ropes so full instructions are appreciated.
