01:09:43[Saint]What decides if a target gets HAVE_TC_RAMCACHE?
01:10:59[Saint]perhaps my build on the color is too old.
01:11:16[Saint]I can find lots of stuff /checking/ if HAVE_TC_RAMCACHE is defined.
01:11:22[Saint]But only one place defining it.
01:11:28[Saint]And, that's commented out.

01:37:37*[Franklin] thinks that the whole system menu under settings->general should be removed
01:38:14[Franklin]but that everything affecting audio playback should be kept
01:38:52foolshWe could start another project at and gather ideas
01:39:04foolshI started an outline for another idea I got from [Saint] about a build farm for testers
01:40:38foolshI got permission from bjorn to use the build server scripts he says they're GPLv3
01:48:09ZincAlloy[Franklin], I'd keep in LCD brightness settings
01:51:06[Franklin]oh yeah
01:51:12ZincAlloyfrom the playback settings I'd keep Shuffle, Repeat and FF/Rew speeds
01:51:16[Franklin]and LCD
01:51:23[Franklin]so timeout/etc
01:51:59[Franklin]But not the whole display menu
01:52:11[Franklin]Codepage,etc. is too... overwhelming?
01:52:20[Saint]Well...holy shit. How did I let that slip through?
01:52:24[Saint]Fuck me. Grrrrrr.
01:53:07[Franklin]System menu: take everything out but keyclick and car adapter mode
01:54:21[Franklin]maybe take out the database?

01:54:36ZincAlloySound Settings should be volume, max vol limit, Bass, Treble, Crossfeed, equalizer and compressor. The last three should only contain presets.
01:55:02[Franklin]try to make it as much like OF as possible, essentially?
01:55:04ZincAlloyI'd keep in the database. but set everything so that the user won't have to do anything to enable it.
01:55:28[Franklin]Theme menu we can keep as is
01:55:41[Franklin]But how about manage settings?
01:55:41[Franklin]Maybe just "save"
01:55:58ZincAlloywe simply supply one good theme and that's it.
01:55:59[Franklin]So you can only have one preset at a time
01:56:33[Franklin]Nooo... people like RB because of the themes
01:56:53[Franklin]Maybe install all the "good" themes: 4+ stars
01:57:28ZincAlloyor pick a handful of good ones
01:57:38[Franklin]yeah, probably that
01:58:44ZincAlloymanage settings could be "save settings" and "load settings", right..
01:58:49[Franklin]definitely cabbie
01:58:59[Franklin]and reset to prevent screwups
01:59:22foolshI would lean toward a revamp UI with only static graphics like some/most commercial firmwares, maybe use coverflow-ish type animations - If I leaned one way or the other at all
01:59:25ZincAlloyif there can be screwups, we failed :D
02:00:09[Franklin]Well, I have some work that needs doing, sorry
02:00:28ZincAlloyalright :)

02:02:21ZincAlloybullshit if you ask me :D
02:03:02ZincAlloyyou can listen to music with any original firmware
02:03:03foolshWell, beauty can and should be experienced through all senses
02:03:44foolshNumber one statement I hear everytime I show rockbox off is "It's ugly"
02:04:07ZincAlloywhich theme?
02:04:34foolshIts the text menu that turns them off
02:04:56ZincAlloyisn't apple doing the same thing?

02:14:43foolshNot counting the ipod with text menus, most other players use some form of graphic for the menus, and I think people are just accustomed to having that
02:16:03ZincAlloyyeah, big icons..
02:16:47ZincAlloyI never felt they added much to the user experience
02:17:00ZincAlloyif anything, they made navigation harder
02:17:37foolshRight I guess you can't tell where you are relative to anywhere else
