FS#10426 - Wrong sort when title has a number


When a song title is a number like “17” or “1979”, database navigation order is wrong.

Song “17” is shown “17. 17 - 00:17” (it lasts 17 seconds).
Song “1979” is shown “79. 1979 - 04:25”.

If the song’s title contains a number, the same thing happens.

Song “Hawkmoon 269” is shown “69. Hawkmoon 269 - 06:22”.
Song “100,000 raisons” is shown “100,000 raisons - 03:42”, without any prefix order number.

Of course, the order of the file in the list corresponds.

I only use Ogg files, without any track value in the tags. I did not modify the tagnavi.config.
This issue also occured with previous versions.

No activity since 2 years. Guessing track numbers is likely to get removed soon anyway – see mailing list for discussion.

I confirmed this problem.

This problem happens when the tracknumber is not included in ID3 tag.

Please build Rockbox after applying this problem’s patch file.
And change settings:

  Settings > General Settings > Database > generate Tracknumber > selects "No".

And remake database newly.

It would be more usable to generate a “fake” tracknumber in database from file order in directory, the same way files are displayed in directories when browsing.

It would be working for directories with files with tracknumbers in ID3, and for directories without tracknumbers in ID3. But we need a rule to determine numbers when mixing those two files types (with/without).

I’d suggest thatr we don’t generate fake track numbers at all - internally they should be track 0 and purely sorted on title.
