Details

rockboxdev.sh is no longer working for arm-eabi targets e.g. iriver H10. The reason is that the version of binutils (binutils-2.20.1.tar.bz2 ) it requires is no longer located on http://mirrors.kernel.org/gnu/binutils/. To get this to work, need to find an alternative mirror which still hosts the required binutils. I tried using the version that is hosted at http://mirrors.kernel.org/gnu/binutils/ (binutils-2.20.1a.tar.bz2) but had problems with it.
(the required file can be found here: http://ftp.yz.yamagata-u.ac.jp/pub/GNU/binutils/)
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Fixed
Additional comments about closing:  symlinks to the new files with the same names as the old files are now in place so rockboxdev.sh works without modification again.

I should add that the error rockboxdev.sh fails on is error 404 first time, then a 'corrupt archive' type error because the file has not downloaded properly for subsequent attempts at running this. I eventually got this to work by manually copying the correct files into /tmp/rb-dev and running rockboxdev.sh
