Rockbox mail archiveSubject: RuntimeDatabase
From: Daniel Stenberg <daniel_at_rockbox.org>
I read through the latest version of the RuntimeDatabase wiki page and I
I really don't like how this format lacks support for upgrading of the songdb
I propose that we make adjustments to make sure this becomes possible.
I say this takes two things to make it good:
1. The current runtimedb uses offsets (only) into the songdb to get info about
What about a second way as well? It would uniquely identify a songdb entry.
2. Detect an update and adapt.
Perhaps we could have the songdb have a random id/sequence in its header,
Yes, the refresh is a very costly operation but we could easily have a host
The difference between this host program and the one the current suggestion
A) it doesn't need the previous songdb when updating
B) it is optional as it can be done on target after update
Okey, these are my suggetions that of course are based on what I would like to
