Subject: Re: another 8MB upgrade success story
Date: 2003-03-20

Where's the problem? Make folders with 400 Files and create playlists...

Sorry for changing the discussion. I have rockbox since yesterday and it
seems to be great. But - can someone tell me, how I can lock my key? I
can't find a HOLD-Function?

Thanks a lot!

It's not that simple. These buffers are allocated at link time. We can't
just expand them, since there is other data before and after the buffers.
It requires a more complex runtime memory allocation solution.

As long as 8MB is an exotic mod used by a very limited number of people, I
will not accept added code complexity because of it. Making a separate
build is much simpler and the result is the same.
