Hello,

when i'm trying to read a playlist with the rockbox
firmware, it displays well the number of files, but
does not start playing them.

Using a Debian GNU/Linux.

Typical Directory structure :

/Artist - Album Name/
/Artist - Album Name/Album.m3u
/Artist - Album Name/Album Name - Artist Name - Track
Number.mp3
[...]

The playlist is generated like this :

# cd "Artist - Album Name"
# ls -1 *.mp3 > Abum.m3u

So the filenames are relative to the current path.
Perhaps this is what cause the failure. Of course, this
works fine with the archos original firmware :-)

I browsed the source (apps/playlist.c) but i didn't
find any visible bug. I can't say if the relative path
is responsible of the failure, i didn't look at the
code very close. I hope you'll find the bug :\

This is adressed in the release notes:

"Relative paths are not yet supported, all paths must
begin in the root dir no matter where the playlist file is
located."

Ok i've read more sources and it seems you've not already
implemented a relative 'open' function...

Sorry, next time i would read the sources before posting a
bug report !

Thanks for your work :-)

You're right, open() can only open absolute files atm, but
we intend to add support for relative files in playlists
really soon by simply prepending the dirctory name before
relative file names. This feature just hasn't been enabled.
