Re: How to move file with rockbox on AJBR v1
I know where is the rename-function.
What i what to do is describe in the text below: ( it works for Shagnar but not for me : rockbox says: "rename failed")
rasher> why do you need to copy?
12.27.52 # <rasher> isn't rename(/move) what you want?
12.29.54 # <ashridah> preglow: already? bugger
12.30.19 # <Shagnar> rasher its like that:
12.30.48 # <Shagnar> by creating a dir named "copybox" in the /root i can also copy vom H140 to any other usb device
12.31.09 # <Shagnar> so i oculd copy the songs i want to have on the target in this directory and then copy these files
12.31.26 # <Shagnar> i hope you understand, my englisch isn't the best ;o)
12.31.50 # <rasher> Ah, I understand now
12.32.00 *** Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
12.32.03 # <rasher> does copybox remove the contents of this dir+
12.36.11 # <Shagnar> no
12.36.17 # <Shagnar> just copies
12.36.48 # <rasher> in theory you could move the files there, then back again :)
12.36.48 # <Shagnar> why? is rockbox able to move files?
12.37.02 # <Shagnar> wow!
12.37.04 # <rasher> I forget..
12.37.07 # <Shagnar> but how?
12.37.10 # <rasher> hang on.. I'm unsure :)
12.37.54 # <rasher> it seems not :)
12.38.47 # <rasher> oh, it is
12.38.59 # <rasher> rename to '/root/copybox/filename'
12.39.07 # <rasher> it's not exactly convenient
12.39.09 Part LinusN
12.39.55 # <amiconn> rasher: Someone should write a norton commander plugin...
12.40.00 # <rasher> Haha
12.40.34 # <Shagnar> rasher what do u mean? didn't undertand really... how can i move files?
12.40.55 # <rasher> if you rename a file to something including a path, it will be moved as well
12.41.54 # <Shagnar> ah
12.42.01 # <Shagnar> now i did understand
12.42.09 # <rasher> But as I said, it's not very practical
12.42.25 # <rasher> especially not when you have to move a lot of files
12.42.40 # <Shagnar> yes it isn't. but the files don't get lost or something?
12.43.39 # <rasher> no, but I'm not sure how it handles if the path doesn't exist
12.44.35 # <rasher> Ah, 'rename failed'.. that's fine
12.44.44 # <Shagnar> yeah
12.44.49 # <Shagnar> :-(
12.45.04 # <rasher> why :(?
12.45.26 # <Shagnar> tried it but didn't work... hmm encore une fois
12.45.58 # <rasher> oh, you shouldn't include /root/
12.46.00 # <rasher> just /
12.46.30 # <rasher> sorry about that :)
12.46.51 # <Shagnar> ah fine
12.46.55 # <Shagnar> now it works
