#rockbox log for 2002-09-02

00:00:10TotMacheris it better to charge with rockbox ?
00:00:46ZagorTotMacher: no, we still charge less than the stock firmware to avoid battery damage
00:00:57TotMacherahh ok
00:01:02dwihnoZagor: thanks

07:30:18black6hosthi all, took a look at rockbox today and I'm impressed. A bit concerned with the hard drive password issue. Is this a frequent thing?
07:31:16LinusNi haven't seen it since christmas
07:32:02black6hosti'm having issues on my linux box and I'm not in a position to compile in the patch...:(
07:32:22LinusNdon't worry
07:32:29LinusNit is very rare
07:32:50LinusNand also, it doesn not seem to be a rockbox issue either
07:33:06LinusNorthodox archos users have had it too
07:33:17black6hosti saw that though I did see mention that it affects the developers more than standard firmware...
07:34:19LinusNyup, it probably had to do with low battery level combined with uninitialized I/O ports or something
07:34:33black6hostjust got the recorder 15 and it's pretty slick. only thing though is that occasionally it locks up while playing and the hard drive starts making a bad bad sound
07:34:51LinusNbetter return it
07:35:08black6hostjust got done loading up a ton of cd's too, now I've got to take it back and exchange it
07:35:11LinusNrecorder 15?
07:35:16LinusNis that new?
07:35:27LinusNi only knew about 6, 10 and 20
07:35:46black6hostmust be, it's not mentioned on their site, even the manual doesn't refer to it
07:36:04LinusNdoes it say 15 on the unit?
07:36:25LinusNi mean printed on the plastic?
07:36:26black6hostyep, jukebox recorder 15
07:36:44black6hosti think it's still got the usb 1.1 interface
07:36:53black6hostcause I don't have usb 2.0
07:36:54LinusNhow lame
07:36:55black6hostand it works
07:37:10black6hostbut the price was right!
07:37:11LinusNbut usb2.0 is backwards compatible
07:37:26black6hostahh, maybe it does then, but no specs for it in the manual
07:37:32black6hostlet me check the box
07:37:45LinusNit is mentioned on the box
07:38:19LinusNit's strange that they don't boast more about the USB2.0
07:39:15black6hosttransfer rate is 1MB/sec, so nope...
07:40:45black6hosti just wish it didn't make that knocking sound. I hate to have to take it back. They don't have the 20 where I got it, unfortunately
07:41:24LinusNi would return it if i were you
07:41:36LinusNor buy a new hard disk
07:41:59black6hostwell, since it's only 3 days old... bit early to repair :)
07:42:24black6hosthope they got another on the shelf
07:42:58LinusNabout the USB, you should be able to see if it is an ISD200 or ISD300 in your device by checking which driver is used in Linux
07:43:53black6hosti haven't got that far yet, accessing it from a win box at the moment, my suse box is having, uhh, difficulty :)
07:44:48black6hosthopefully get that fixed tonight, new jukebox tomorrow, rockbox on it and life will be good
07:45:13 Join Bill_k [0] (
07:45:34LinusNblack6host: good luck
07:45:44LinusNHes: morning
07:46:07black6hostthx! off to fix my other stuff!
07:46:13 Part black6host
07:46:58Bill_kHello all can anybody point me where I can find info in setting up the dev envioment under windows?
07:47:37LinusNthere are different options
07:48:43Bill_kI heard somone had success using Visual studio? But I can also use a dos box
07:49:09LinusNdo you want to build a simulator or a target firmware?
07:49:47Bill_kfirmware is my goal for a recorder 20
07:50:09LinusNok, then you need a cross compiler, and Visual Studio will not help you
07:50:22LinusNyou can start reading at
07:51:24HesHi, any ata.c news?
07:51:29Bill_kI downloades the wingnushv020 and installed
07:51:43LinusNHes: no, i don't have any new theories
07:51:56HesOk... i'll go with some debugging stuff then
07:51:57LinusNsince my latest fix didn't solve anything
07:52:16LinusNBill_k: ok, and then?
07:53:13HesDoes ata.c code run in interrupts?
07:53:38Hesshould inserting lcd_print code there be safe?
07:53:58LinusNHes: ata is polled
07:54:23LinusNHes: do you still have skipping?
07:54:41LinusNand only with SLEEP, not with STANDBY?
07:54:41HesProportional font support? (N)
07:55:01Hesconfigure still asks for that although proportional is the default...
07:55:13LinusNis it default? that is a bug?
07:55:21LinusNit shouldn't be default
07:55:23Bill_kreading some more. I found a page I missed
07:55:33HesI thought it was made the default.
07:55:44LinusNno, we backed on that one
07:55:49HesAh, ok.
07:56:07HesIt doesn't skip on STANDBY but it doesn't spin down either - even with STANDBY_IMMEDIATE being issued.
07:56:21LinusNHes: is that so?
07:56:39HesYes. I wonder if the drive's STANDBY time should be to something else than 'disabled' for the _IMMEDIATE to work.
07:57:41LinusNlemme check
08:00:12LinusNthe spec says that sending the command will suffice
08:00:19LinusNno parameters
08:00:36HesI'll go to the office... seeya later

08:19:38Bagderhey rwood
08:19:51rwoodhi Bagder
08:20:05Bagderany news?
08:21:17rwoodis the call to lcd_update supposed to be inclosed in an ifdef on HAVE_LCD_BITMAP?
08:21:40LinusNnot necessary
08:21:51LinusNit is defined on players too
08:21:59LinusNalthough it does nothing
08:22:37rwoodBagder: i solved the problem - the schematics are wrong - IRQ1 is the RTC, i believe IRQ0 is the disk
08:23:51rwoodi'm finishing it off with the dynamic relocation - i know zagor wants to do something different, i'm not enough of a C and unix type to setup the .isection sutff
08:24:34LinusNrwood: actually, the resulting code is the same with the .section stuff, just different
08:24:57***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
08:24:57LinusNthe code still has to be explicitly copied
08:25:04LinusNin crt0.S
08:26:04rwoodLinusN: is it going to internal RAM at start time?
08:26:36rwoodLinusN: the move routine - the loader is probably on as is
08:26:55LinusNi wouldn't put the loader in internal ram
08:27:58rwoodi agree, the move routine is quite small and could be recoded in C in internal ram - the fun part was the dynamic relocation
08:28:14rwoodsort of hate to see it go
08:29:23rwoodhave you had any problems with the ADC i2c on the player? - the spec says it is limited to 100k if the serial input is not operating
08:29:51rwoodi assume the serial clock is only operational when the decoder is playing
08:30:15LinusNi haven't seen any ADC I2C problems
08:31:18rwoodit may be something to look at if there are differences from player to player
08:32:09LinusNgood idea
08:32:52LinusNwe have had problems with the dac, but they had to do with not setting all registers i the dac
08:33:49rwoodin chasing what i thought was a RTC problem, i looked at all the I2C specs, rockbox is running somewhat faster than most of the specs
08:35:02LinusNrwood: do you have the timing info?
08:35:06rwoodi don't remember which one, but one specs a 1.25 us high and low clock times
08:35:11LinusNi mean, how far off are we?
08:35:45rwoodi thing our high time is quite short relative to some of the specs
08:36:09rwoodi'll take some timing and compare to all the specs tommorrow
08:36:29CtcpIgnored 1 channel CTCP requests in 0 seconds at the last flood
08:36:29*Bagder is fixing up the last designs
08:36:36LinusNbtw, send us the rolo patch as soon as you are done
08:36:42rwoodif you are interested, i would take on the task of making the i2c driver compliant with the specs
08:36:44Bagderhowto-vote mail coming up soonish
08:37:18LinusNrwood: that would be great!
08:38:01rwoodLinusN: good - as soon as i post ROLO, i'll start on that
08:38:26rwooddo you want me to recode the move routine in C and declare it an .isection?
08:38:47rwoodor leave it to one of the gurus
08:39:30LinusNrwood: leave it
08:39:44LinusNHes: less?
08:39:57Heswhoops, channel lottery, fvwm stopped changing focus, had to restart it 8-)
08:40:18rwoodby the way the only problem was that the IRQ0 had to be set to edge triggered
08:40:26LinusNrwood: i would like the i2c timings to be really optimal
08:40:41HesAh, you found a problem with the STANDBY
08:40:54LinusNmaybe even different timings to different devices
08:41:15rwoodLinusN: by optimal do you mean as short/fast as possible?
08:41:28Hesrwood: so the loader works on recorders now? 8-)
08:41:42LinusNas fast as possible to the codecs
08:42:00rwoodHes:YES - reloads 1.27d on the recorder
08:43:12rwoodLinusN: i'll setup some defines so that the timing can be changed easily
08:43:27LinusNrwood: good

09:05:46Bill_kis the make file that comes with the standard build platford specific. Does it have to be
09:05:52Bill_kmodified for win32
09:06:03Bagdertarget build?
09:06:34Bagderwindows compilers are stupid, so yes
09:06:45Bagderbut really, we should be able to make them into the same one
09:07:00Bagderbut so far no windows users seem to be willing to do the work required
09:07:08rwoodi have a build-player and build-recorder directory - is there a way to force a full re-compile in each directory?
09:07:20Bill_kI assume the make files that came for with the source are for linix
09:07:40rwoodwithout deleting all the .os
09:07:43Bagderrwood: 'make clean' 'make' is the way to force a complete rebuild
09:08:02BagderBill_k: we include windows makefiles too
09:08:03rwoodBagder: thanks
09:08:35Bagderand you shouldn't do anything with 1.2
09:08:40Bagderit is waaaay old
09:08:59BagderBill_k: what compiler are you using?
09:10:28Bill_kThanks Badger. I am using wingnushv 020
09:11:02Bagderright, then I *think* those makefiles should work
09:11:31Bill_kI just want to get a clean compile and then I'll get the latest source

10:02:30Bagderit is pretty useful when used correctly
10:02:44Bagderbut of course, most reporters have no clue
10:02:53Blaster_Masterquestion : i just went from 02/09/01 to 02/09/02 and the option to configure the WPS screen (before there was a nice scrobbar, now it is gone ?)
10:03:57Zagor"this feeling of trust in your development I never had with any other commercial software"
10:05:05Bagderencouraging words indeed
10:05:41Blaster_Masteron the player version
10:06:39ZagorBlaster_Master: yes. now we have fully customizable wps instead.
10:07:05BagderI have this growing feeling that we should appoint "managers" for different areas of the software
10:07:32Bagderthe amount of patches and improvements posted are a bit overwhelming to keep track of
10:09:09Zagorat the same time, I don't want to move too fast either.
10:09:47Bagderno, it wouldn't be to move faster
10:10:05Bagderit would just be easier to read through stuff and concentrate more on your area
10:10:18Bagderright now, we all try to cover all
10:11:35Zagoryes, but there are very few patches I'm ready to just accept as-is. Maybe I'm just a control freak... :-)
10:12:19Bagderno, you're right, but I'm more talking about who would apply the patches, and then possibly commit them
10:12:51Bagdernow, we all just randomly apply patches and possibly commit them
10:13:14Bagderwe might do the same patches or we might ignore the same patches
10:13:21LinusNwe might even come to the point where we should define in general terms what Rockbox should contain and what not

10:13:32LinusNhi alan!
10:13:40alkorrHi linus !
10:13:42BagderLinusN: yes, that too
10:14:47Bagderanother approach could be to use the patches tracker on sourceforge for patches
10:14:57Bagderit would be easier to assign it to a person etc
10:14:57alkorrHi Bagder, Zagor and everybody else
10:15:02Bagderhey Alan
10:15:17ZagorBagder: i was just thinking about that too
10:15:22Zagoralkorr: hi
10:15:41BagderI think that would be an improvement compared to the current situation at least
10:15:55Bagderthen we'd quickly see when the amount of patches grow etc
10:17:20Bagderpersonally it would help me sort out where to put my efforts
10:21:25BagderLinusN: what's your opinion on going over to use the patch tracker for patches?
10:22:43LinusNI have never used it
10:22:57Bagderit's basicly like the feature-requests
10:23:30Bagderit'll be easier to get an overview, to assign them to people, to close already fixed ones etc
10:23:36LinusNi like it
10:25:01***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
10:26:26BagderZagor: so what do you say about encouraging people to post all their patches that way instead?
10:27:16Zagorthe only downside i can think of is that there might be less discussion about the patches
10:28:02Bagderyes, but I think we could have the initial posting get posted to the list
10:28:20Bagdernot all changes, just the initial one
10:31:18mecraw|workwould sourceforge let you mark the patches as accepted/rejected/pending?
10:32:31mecraw|worki think that would be good from the patcher's point of view, that way we would have a place to go to see the status of a patch
10:32:37Bagderand we have a VOTE! ;-)
10:32:53Bagdermecraw: I agree
10:33:06mecraw|workand would keep people from sending mails to the list asking "Where's my patch?"
10:34:07mecraw|workalthough it wouldn't keep me from crying when mine aren't excepted :)
10:35:00Bagderhehe, but it would make it more clear when they are denied or just forgotten ;-)
10:36:12mecraw|workspeaking of patches... :)
10:36:31mecraw|worki think multiline scroll isn't very useful
10:36:52mecraw|worki got it working, but just found it confusing to look at
10:37:15Zagorit could still be nice to have the option in wps.config
10:37:21Zagori haven't looked at the patch yet, though
10:38:34mecraw|worki just made them all scroll in synch
10:38:49mecraw|workmaybe it would be better to have them cycle, one after the other
10:49:04 Nick matsl|away is now known as matsl (
10:53:39mecrawBagder: how about using sourceforge's survey functionality for the t-shirt vote?
10:56:29Bagderhm, didn't think of that
10:57:30mecrawmight as well go all the way
10:58:07BagderI picked the email-way to reduce the possibilty of abuse
10:58:20matslmecraw|work: I have experimented with different scroll speed. One fast line and one slow. It wasn't that bad.
10:59:37mecrawmatsl: cool, i just wanted to see how hard it would be to do
11:00:00LinusNpersonally, i don't liek having the names on the shirt
11:00:09LinusNthat list grows every day
11:00:13Bagderme neither
11:00:17mecrawespecially since mine is missing :)
11:00:26Bagderbut let's see what the people say
11:00:51matslmecraw: Scrolling both lines on the player at the same speed hurts my eyes.
11:01:02LinusNand when a guy is awarded a shirt for a contribution, his name won't be on it, just a bunch of other people
11:01:19mecrawmatsl: same thing happened with me on the recorder
11:01:40mecrawLinusN: not if you win
11:02:10matslmecraw: So we should introduce for the wps %sN where N is the scroll speed.
11:02:42mecrawmatsl: what about scroll one line through, stop it, then scroll the next line?
11:03:33matslmecraw: Maybe. An alternative to scroll is to display one word at the time.
11:03:43LinusNmecraw: i will win anyway, since i pay the t-shirts
11:04:14matslmecraw: There are a lots of possibilities. ;-)
11:04:42*Bagder added a few more people to the CREDITS
11:05:32LinusNmaybe add "...and myself" to the name list on the shirt
11:05:51*mecraw weeps with joy after seeing the credits
11:06:22BagderI think it is important to include all contributors there
11:06:37mecrawAre the designs going to be taken as is? Or are you going to do some tweaks once the winner is chosen?
11:06:57BagderI think we'll need to tweak them, a little depending on which that wins of course
11:07:00mecrawi.e. fix the spelling of "insturmental blues"
11:07:05Bagderright ;-)

11:09:44merwinSo does the new custom wps scroll correctly on the recorder?
11:09:57merwinwho did the update?
11:10:08Zagori did
11:10:16merwinZagor: i mean who wrote it?
11:10:26Zagorlear (Magnus Holmstrm)
11:10:36merwinMagnus... cool name :-)
11:11:28Bagder6 votes already
11:11:49Bagdervery diverse so far
11:11:53merwinSo, I was thinking, and it would probably be easily possible to update the scrolling text... Couldn't you just add an lcd_upate_scrolltext() function that just changes the text string?
11:12:12*merwin needs to vote, but would feel bad about voting for himself
11:12:32Bagdermerwin: if you think yours is best, vote for yourself
11:12:51merwinBagder: heh, sounds good
11:13:14BagderI did ;-)
11:13:21Bagder(vote for my own design)
11:14:08merwinheh. There's some damn good ones.
11:14:16merwinso what do you think about an update_scrolltext() function?
11:14:25merwinthe 2 line scrolling was nice also

11:48:10BagderI haven't taken anything out
11:48:29Zagormerwin|packing: yes, only custom wps if you don't like the default

11:48:53Zagorit's silly having several pieces of code doing the same thing
11:49:35merwin|packingZagor: True. Shouldn't there be more than one setting still? Just in case you want to change it for a bit and don't have a computer handy?
11:50:26Zagorthe chance that the bit you want to change is one of our predefined is so slim it's pointless

11:52:09Zagorah, ok. yeah we could add the option to load several different wps configs. in fact, we should rename them to be called *.wps and let the tree browser load them...
11:52:26Bagderneat idea
11:52:41Zagorthen we have no limit
11:53:00merwinZagor: that is a great idea
11:53:16Zagordefault.wps is loaded at boot
11:54:00merwinPart of our goal, if I understand correctly, is "Ultimate Configuration, Without The Confusion (tm)"
11:54:01Zagoror we can even save a short filename in the resume block
11:54:20Zagormerwin: yes. but also Without The Messy Code
11:54:30merwinZagor: ahh, forgot that part!
11:54:47merwinZagor: I *try*, with my unfortunately limited knowledge of C

11:57:06Zagorit currently only loads at boot. the new tree loader feature will fix this.
11:57:24Zagornotch: yes. but i'm having other plans for F2 so i'm not applying it

11:57:45notchno worrires - just didnt turn up in my inbox...
11:57:59notchfor some reason!
11:58:08Zagormecraw: yes, loading *.wps files from the dir browser
11:58:42merwinZagor: are we only going to allow the .wps files to be located in the .rockbox folder? Because if we don't, the string saved onto disk for the next bootup will have to be MAX_PATH
11:59:21Zagormerwin: we can load from anywhere, but only those stored in .rockbox will automatically resume. (and lets limit filename length to about 10 chars too)
12:00:01*mecraw tries to go to sleep again
12:00:03merwinZagor: good idea. How much space do we have in the RTS (is that the correct term, i'm tired), and on the disk

12:00:46BagderRTC is 44 bytes
12:00:49Bagderthe mem
12:00:58Zagormerwin: rtc is rather crowded. this will go on disk only
12:01:40merwinZagor: why even bother using the RTC? :P
12:01:58Bagderbecause it is faster to save there
12:02:09Zagormerwin: to make sure settings are always up-to-date. otherwise you'd have to wait for disk spinup, like the players.
12:02:10Bagderno need to spin up disk etc
12:02:46merwinZagor: so the important settings, like resume, get saved to the RTC, and the non-essential ones (that don't change very often) get saved to disk
12:03:13Zagorno. all settings are saved on disk. some of them are also saved to rtc.
12:03:45Zagorbut rtc is written more frequently than disk, so on boot rtc values take precedence
12:03:47merwinZagor: ahh. k. How much room do we have on the disk? And should we consider an editable file at some point?
12:04:01Zagormerwin: we currently use a single sector (512 bytes)
12:04:14Zagora writable file has pros and cons.
12:04:23merwinZagor: fat corruption is a bad con
12:04:28merwinZagor: archos firmware had that
12:04:42Zagoryes. and a single sector is *very* quick to write. a file can be troublesome on full disks.
12:05:10Zagorwe will likely keep the sector solution for a while, at least
12:05:16merwinOnly if you have a disk with under like 1mb left :)
12:05:45Zagormerwin: even with 1G free on a 40G disk, it can take quite some time to locate free space
12:06:05*merwin went canoeing (in a canoe of course) today... fun stuff
12:06:17merwinZagor: really? i never would have though that
12:07:17Zagormerwin: the archos has this problem when recording. it sometimes takes a lot of time to start recording, because it searches for free disk space first

13:12:01NorrinExcellent work.
13:12:18NorrinQuestion concerning latest build 20020902.
13:12:26NorrinWhere did the WPS option go?
13:13:24Bagderit took a hike ;-)

13:16:04zodiaci turned it on and i only see the start screen :jukebox ver:5.08 nothing else
13:16:34zodiacfook, hd error

13:18:19NorrinThis folder is created on the Jukebox?
13:18:44Bagderyes, create the folder and then edit the file wps.config in it
13:19:28LinusNBagder: is there a link to that somewhere on the page?
13:19:49Bagderthat link is in the faq, but I don't know if its anywhere else
13:20:01Bagderit should be added to the manual for wps
13:20:04NorrinThanks, excellent.
13:20:48zodiacok, it seems its gone now :)
13:21:32NorrinAnother question, the wps.config goes in the directory "rockbox" correct?
13:21:51Bagderwith a dot first
13:21:54zodiaci have a HD error, any clues?
13:21:58NorrinCan't create .rockbox under Windows XP
13:22:07BagderNorrin: you need to do it in a dos prompt
13:22:19NorrinThanks again.
13:22:29Bagderwe'll need to document that too
13:23:18NorrinWhat purpose does the . serve?
13:23:40Bagderit makes the directory hidden if 'show hidden files' is Off
13:23:45zodiacnorrin, hide the file in unix

14:35:13Zagorwhy'dya check in that? ;)
14:35:15BagderI got those darned conflict indicators in there
14:35:22langhaarrockerHas the dynamic memory topic been discussed in the mailing list? I didn't find anything useful at 1st attempt.
14:35:35Zagorlanghaarrocker: it has, in the 200 dir limit discussion
14:35:43zodiacrofl, it works now
14:36:06langhaarrockerZagor: Thanx, I'll check.
14:36:07idefxwhye does the compiler says me:" undefined reference to `strtok'
14:36:21Bagderidefx: I told you
14:36:25Bagderthere is no such function
14:36:35Bagderit is called strtok_r() in the target
14:36:43Bagderand is used a little differently
14:36:47idefxBadger: OK
14:37:08idefxBadger: sorry, but, you just told me that strtok is bad. ;)

15:02:23idefxYes, another undefined reference for you guys: i have installed the rolo patch, and if i try to compile for simulation, i get an undefined reference (whiche i don't get in native compiling) to rolo_load_app
15:03:13Bagderrolo shouldn't be built like that when simulated
15:03:29Bagderwe can't simulate rolo
15:04:06Bagderso... don't use the patch or fix the code :-)
15:04:13Zagori'll fix rolo now
15:05:55idefxOK, thks
15:09:22LinusNhehe, using short ata timeouts is really fun
15:09:32ZagorLinusN: do you get it working ok?
15:09:50LinusNit seems to work a lot better, at least
15:10:04LinusNbut i never had skips
15:10:20idefxwell, how do I use rolo ??
15:10:31Zagoridefx: it's not there yet
15:10:35LinusNbut i tried with a short ata timeout before the fix and had a lot of opendir errors
15:10:48LinusNbut not after the fix
15:10:53ZagorLinusN: sounds good
15:10:58idefxbut i get a patch this afternoon, it doesn't work ?
15:11:20LinusNthe problem is that the mpeg thread spins down the disk immediately, even if another thread uses ATA
15:11:20Zagoridefx: yes it does. just apply it and klick "play" on a firmware file
15:12:09ZagorLinusN: right. i couldn't come up with a good solution for that.
15:12:33LinusNmaybe some kind of "grace period" after an ata access
15:12:42LinusNi don't know
15:13:15Zagori was thinking that too, but it didn't feel right
15:13:49LinusNor some kind of an "ata session" concept
15:13:59LinusNto tell when you'r done
15:14:20LinusNstart session. session
15:14:26Zagorugh, can't say that makes my heart sing either... :-)
15:14:33idefxwell, i may not be very good, i can't find where/when i can press play on a firmware..
15:14:35LinusNhehe, mine neither
15:14:55LinusNidefx: turn off the m3u/mp3 filter
15:15:38idefxLinusN: Whow ! this stuff is impressive !
15:17:07LinusNthe rolo?
15:17:47LinusNyeah, it's cool
15:18:00LinusNi hope zagor can merge that patch soon
15:18:01idefxthis is what i waited for a few mounth to definitly install rockbox in my archos.
15:18:13LinusNchicken :-)
15:18:57idefxnice to wait till everything works well!
15:19:02LinusNidefx: out of curiosity, what is lacking in rockbox that makes you want to load the original? recording?
15:19:55LinusNidefx: if everyone waited until everything worked well, we would never have found any bugs
15:20:22Bagderwe can't complain on the bravery of people
15:20:29LinusNnot at all
15:20:49LinusNespecially dwihno, still our hero
15:21:01LinusNit was him, wasn't it?
15:21:08Bagderyes it was
15:21:16Bagderfirst ever recorder rockbox
15:21:45LinusNnobody had tested it before, and he tried it on his second day as an Archos owner
15:22:11Bagdergrep -c archos200 /var/log/httpd/rockbox-access_log
15:22:33Bagderdaily builds
15:23:01Bagderthose daily builds have turned out really useful
15:23:08idefxperhaps a lack of stability last time i tried (rockbox 1)
15:23:08idefxLinusN: that's why i'm coding the function of my dream: a seeking function
15:23:08DBUGEnqueued KICK idefx
15:23:08idefxLinusN: i wasn't waiting, i could'nt find time to code. And i shouldn't code now too, for i have a flat to find ;)
15:25:15idefxLinusN: And his archos is still alive ?
15:25:22LinusNoh yeah
15:25:35idefxSo it is a hero, but not a martyr.
15:25:54Bagderthere's a very subtle difference :-)
15:26:31idefxit's good for us that there is no rockbox martyr (yet), this way, people can believe that we are not a sect
15:26:52LinusNzodiac seems close to becoming the first rockbox martyr... :-)
15:27:21LinusNor rather WinXP martyr...
15:27:37idefxthen he won't be the first one i'm affraid...

19:44:13alkorronce setup is done, well type "make" then "make modules" then "make install install_modules" and it should be okay I think
19:44:38alkorryou must be familiar with DOS-commands i think
19:44:57alkorri mean DIS-like commands
19:45:00datazoneJet8810: am, it probably has that support in there already
19:45:04datazonedo a "lsmod"
19:45:19alkorryes good idea
19:45:32datazoneor a "dmesg" after you plug in and turned on your jukebox
19:45:34datazoneit will show it

23:17:43Bagderelinenbe: yes, but we have no proper storage of the orginal number

23:22:57Bagderidefx: you just solve your problem differently
23:23:05idefxBagder: Ok
23:24:16Bagderyou should not keep lots of those structs around anyway
23:24:29Bagderso I can't see how knowing which path it is can be very hard
23:25:06idefxwell, that's not so hard, but, i have to add an argument more.

23:25:55Bagderipv6-hes! ;-)
23:26:59elinenbethere are currently some serious problems with the multiline scroll patch
23:27:06Hes2reverse delegation doesn't seem to be on all servers yet.
23:27:29Hes2Or the guys try resolving from still.
23:28:28ZagorHes2: did linus' ATA patch improve your skipping anything?
23:28:34dwihnoWhat's the prob with multiline scroll?
23:28:53Hes2I didn't get around to test it yet. I've had massive problems with usb-storage crashing my systems.
23:29:04Hes2Which kind of pissed me off this afternoon.
23:29:10Zagordwihno: "too few hours per day error in lcd.c:438"
23:29:37dwihnoZagor: hehe :)
23:29:42elinenbedwihno: try it out and look a the directory browser.
23:30:04dwihnoelinenbe: I have no patching utility for my wintendo :(L
23:30:24elinenbetry cygwin. that is what I use.
23:30:46Bagdervote vote vote
23:31:26elinenbeBagder: add that to the news on the web page.
23:31:31Bagdergood idea
23:31:35 Part Hes2 ("hm")
23:31:55Zagoryou don't see ipv6 much in irc
23:32:02ZagorI don't, anyway :-)
23:32:19HesNot much yet...
23:32:52Hesdid my first ipv6 login on ircnet about two years ago or so

23:33:41Bagdernice one-liners are fun ;-)
23:35:26Bagder14 people have voted so far on 23 designs
23:36:05dwihnoBagder: your 13 votes can't count, you can only vote once ;)
23:36:14Bagderoh darn
23:37:38dwihnotop3 designs?
23:38:04elinenbeI think "ON" in the menus should return to the tree view.
23:38:07Bagderso far: 6, 13 and 7
23:38:15Bagder(not in that order)
23:39:16HesI'm stunned.
23:41:04Zagorelinenbe: nah. too much hassle.
23:49:27elinenbedoes anyone have a really nice wps file for the recorder?
23:52:57idefxwell, Zagor, you were true, that's damn slow !!
23:56:28idefxmaybe i could improve it, but, may still be too slow. Youre idea was good,i now have to make: -an efficient format to store title, album artist and filename, a tool to read it efficiently on the archos, something to make it on a Linux computer, [and find someone to make a windows version]. Bad, very bad...
23:57:01Zagoridefx: you should write the indexer in something portable, like perl or java
23:58:03idefxZagor: Yes, i'll make it in perl or python (or ada, but, no-one will love me after that ...)
23:58:20Bagderyou could talk to matsl, as he started thinking/working on something like that
23:58:26*Zagor prefers perl overy python, personally
23:58:30ZagorBagder: right
23:58:43*mecraw prefers java
