I know how you feel about the threads fbdev, but I agree with Barty--I think it's much less likely that important info will be lost & buried if we keep things to one major thread.

Also, regarding Barty's kinamp request:
I couldn't figure it out from the source, but I'm assuming you currently use the mplayer slave cmd get_file_name for the fb display? And that in order to fulfill his request you would need to change it to get_meta_title, right?

That would suck for local file playing.. well, for the way I use it at least. Currently I can get all the info I need by seeing the file name (ALBUM/##. TITLE) .... Long story short, if you decide to mess with this at all fbdev, I would propose conditionally using get_meta_title only on streams.

On the other hand, whatever you do.. I could use a reason to setup scratchbox and really start messing with this myself.

OH speaking of which: If you haven't already, please follow a tail on messages while kinamp + mplayer are playing a file. Please tell me you haven't noticed this before. Either way, don't you think it's a bit crazy to be causing syslog-ng (& tinyrot) to be writing to the flash so much? I only just realized this today and haven't taken the time to figure out adding an exception for all that eink_fb crap (tho I did try stopping syslog-ng to no avail--something restarts it within 10 seconds).
