FS#13292 - Can't play any tracks- *PANIC* due to running of of buffer memory

Rockbox doesn’t work. I am getting a *PANIC* every time I try to play any file:

*PANIC* audio_reset_buffer_noalloc() : EOM (575324 > 145296)
pc: 300466e0 sp: 3
A: 00023790
A: 300cd544
bt end

I also saw an OOM panic:
*PANIC* audio_reset_buffer_noalloc() : OOM

and I also got a *PANIC* the first time I long pressed on the Database node.

I tried to reinstall only the base Rockbox firmware using the Rockbox utility
(1.4.1) (AppImage) and I got an error:
ROLO error: file too big

Here is my setup:
Hardware: Sandisk Clip Zip (new device)
Port: Sandisk Clip Zip port 3.15 (stable)
Samsung 512 EVO sd card with fresh fat32 filesystem, checked with chkdsk

Does Rockbox have a limit on the
number of songs that it supports? Could this be causing my Kernel panics?


I use this player daily.
please use a recent dev build

rather than using rb util please instead
rename the .rockbox directory and then copy the files from the zip directly to the player
try a build from here: todays:

you already have the bootloader installed you will not need at all

If all else fails I'd try another memory card and look on the forum about getting the card to actually format correctly if that works then you can nuke your EVO and reformat to see if that works

This ClipZip (New device) at best its NOS (new old stock)
is it a 4Gb model or an 8GB model?
