While there are ports of Linux that run on certian Archos devices (the AV series in particular), Rockbox itself is *not* Linux. It's fully GPL'ed though.
Rockbox is its own operating system, very lean and on its original target, a 16-bit microcontroller in the Archos Jukebox series. has to fit within 2 megs of RAM, including song buffers.
While it is being ported to much more capable platforms now, that does not make it Linux.
