00:11:27pyromanceHey ... Any developers around?
00:12:12[IDC]Dragondepends on your definition...
00:12:34 Quit _aLF ("bye")
00:12:48pyromanceWell I linked Rockbox on a page I just slapped together
00:13:22pyromanceJust wanted those responsible to accept props.
00:13:24pyromanceSo ... PROPS!
00:13:50[IDC]DragonLinus, take it!
00:19:12 Quit MasterLee (Remote closed the connection)
00:20:22[IDC]DragonLinus, I did the diff between "cold" and "warm" I/O space. lots of differences, will take me a while to work it out.
00:33:12LinusNpyromance: you want permission to link to us?

00:49:35Bluechipdoes anyone have expereince of using DIFF to create patch files?
00:50:05BoD[]isn't it just diff file1 file2 ?
00:50:27Bluechipneed to now how to create new files
00:50:35mecrawBluechip: take a look here:
00:50:47Bluechipi can diff files that existed previously, but it does not include the NEW files
00:50:53Bluechipthanks, read that ;)
00:51:01hardeepBluechip: there are several ways to add new files to a patch:
00:51:17hardeep1. diff -N
00:51:33Bluechipbrb :)
00:51:34hardeep2. diff -u /dev/null /path/to/file
00:52:01Bluechipcan i diff -r -u -N daily mystuff
00:52:04hardeepnote: the -N option won't work with "cvs diff" unless you've already "cvs add"ed the file
00:52:13hardeepBluechip: yeah, that'll work
00:52:28Bluechipyes, i am dreading cvs
00:52:44Bluechipstill, gonna have to use it one day i suppose

01:07:18NateDogI'm trying to find the ajbrec.ajz file to rename it (and then install the rockbox version), but I don't see it...can anyone help?
01:07:43Bluechiphave you just run a make?
01:08:02Bluechipahh, sorry, just got you
01:08:46Bluechipthe firmware in your player by default is in a chip - half way thru boot-up it looks for ajbrec.ajz - if present it uses that instead
01:09:10Bluechipthe original firmware will not be touched - erasing rockbox will put it back as you found it
01:09:26NateDogah...OK, thanks bro
01:09:33Bluechipofficial upgrades can be found on the archos site

01:19:52tracktheripperbefore anyone asks me, Sokoban still DOES NOT work
01:20:06BluechipSo Linus, is my first game worthy code in your oppinion?
01:21:10LinusNBluechip: haven't looked at it yet
01:21:21LinusNtracktheripper: i'm puzzled
01:21:25Bluechiptrack: anything I can help with?
01:21:43tracktheripperwell its just an ongoing Sokoban issue
01:21:52tracktheripperwhere levels after level 1 don't load
01:21:55BluechipLN: fair comment
01:22:23Bluechipnot seen the bug yet, i will try now...
01:22:54tracktheripperthis only started where you now have to put the levels.txt file in .rockbox/sokoban
01:23:28LinusNtracktheripper: what does menu->version say on your box?
01:23:43tracktheripperhang on
01:23:55Bluechipoooohhhhhh, shows [f1]=help, waits, lots of red led and returns to the menu for me

01:30:53LinusNtracktheripper: are you using the ajbrec.ajz i sent you?
01:31:39LinusNif you did, the version would be 20030624-0114
01:32:09LinusNgo to sound settings
01:32:12tracktheripperive given up on Sokoban now............
01:32:18tracktheripperdon't wanna keep wasting your time
01:32:43LinusNgo to sound settings
01:33:20LinusNdo you see a bunch of new settings, like "MDB strength" and the like?
01:35:46OliverKlozoffI see MDB and think of multi-drop bus
01:35:49tracktheripperand Super Bass (!)
01:36:11LinusNand menu->version says?
01:37:01LinusNthat's better
01:37:07LinusNnow, how about sokoban?
01:37:18tracktheripperlevels still don't load
01:37:48tracktheripperi prob have a hardware fault with my archos :-(
01:38:08[IDC]DragonHi players!
01:38:17LinusNtracktheripper: hardly
01:38:33[IDC]DragonI completed the I/O diff.
01:38:54[IDC]Dragonand set those which made sense.
01:39:14tracktheripperwhat does MBD stand for?
01:39:33[IDC]Dragon"Cold" Rockbox behaves different now.
01:40:37[IDC]Dragon(sorry for getting inbetween, I'm not shure about "chattiquette")
01:41:06tracktheripperLinus what does MBD stand for?
01:41:07[IDC]DragonThe ATA part passes now.
01:42:30LinusNtracktheripper: Micronas Dynamic Bass
01:42:43LinusN[IDC]Dragon: nice
01:42:56[IDC]DragonThe display is still blank.
01:43:11OliverKlozoff[IDC]Dragon: did you see the lcd init stuff?
01:43:43[IDC]DragonHowever, the box does _something_, until the red led starts flashing and the thing is dead.
01:43:57[IDC]DragonOliver, no, what init stuff?
01:44:03OliverKlozofftake thy pick
01:44:37OliverKlozoffhmm that's all i have atm it seems
01:44:38[IDC]Dragonah, yes. But that was not my thread, or?
01:44:50OliverKlozoffthat's for an FM btw
01:45:01OliverKlozoffbut I imagine that it would be rather similar for a Recorder
01:45:50OliverKlozoffif I knew all (or at least most) of the differences between the Recorder and the FM I could probably run the Recorder ROM
01:45:52[IDC]Dragonmy PC UART seems broken, maybe a reboot fixes it.
01:46:00[IDC]DragonSee you soon.
01:46:17 Quit [IDC]Dragon ()
01:47:54joshnBTW, on the above site, some pics of display emulator. Open source?
01:48:18OliverKlozoffit will be at some point
01:48:52joshnk, thinking of doing port of Rockbox to a similar player; main difference is LCD. Just curious.
01:49:53Bluechipthat could be fun
01:50:09OliverKlozoffwell rockbox supports two completely different displays
01:50:20Bluechipindeed :)
01:51:16joshnI had some (buggy) code written for it somewhere, not sure where it is now :-(
01:55:26 Join [IDC]Dragon [0] (
01:58:38[IDC]DragonHi again. It wasn't the UART, but stupid me plugging in a headphone and shorting the serial in.
02:02:36LinusN[IDC]Dragon: i've done that a hundred times...
02:02:46LinusNi finally made an adapter
02:03:18[IDC]DragonYea, should do that. I already have the 4-pin plugs.
02:03:30tracktheripperso Linus, found the bug yet
02:03:56tracktheripperim off 2 bed now
02:03:57tracktherippernite nite
02:04:35tracktheripperi hope this bug is fixed soon as its bugging me (pardon the pun)
02:04:52LinusNtracktheripper: wait
02:05:00tracktheripperSeriously LinusN you should change "Loudness" to "Realizer" in the sound menu :-)
02:05:01***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
02:05:24*OliverKlozoff changes it to 'Unquietness' just to add to the confusion
02:05:24tracktheripperi need my beauty sleep.........
02:05:33LinusNi just have to know, how did your levels.txt file get CRLF endings?
02:05:41tracktheripperi don't know
02:05:54LinusNdid you edit the file?
02:06:06 Quit tracktheripper ("Leaving")
02:06:43[IDC]DragonHey, the debug logs say it's playing!
02:07:08LinusN[IDC]Dragon: did you add the lcd init code?
02:07:48[IDC]DragonNo. Is it that clear already?#
02:07:57hardeepLinusN: if you do a save-as from Internet Explorer, CRLF is added to a text file
02:08:08LinusNthat sux
02:08:12OliverKlozoffwhat's Internet Explorer?
02:08:20OliverKlozoffis that like Mozilla or Opera?
02:08:26OliverKlozoffor wget or lynx?
02:08:47 Quit matsl ("Client exiting")
02:08:49LinusNhardeep: the wrid thing is that he copied the file from his recorder and emailed it to me
02:09:06LinusNand it had lf endings
02:09:14OliverKlozoffmaybe his mailer undid it
02:09:24OliverKlozoffor your mailer
02:09:34hardeepLinusN: maybe your mail reader stripped the crlf? pretty common with plain text files
02:10:25OliverKlozoffsince smtp sends messages with cr/lf
02:11:13*OliverKlozoff notes that this is why he always compresses files, and never with gzip
02:11:29OliverKlozoffso many misconfigured Apache installs
02:16:02 Quit pyromance ("[BX] Reserve your copy of BitchX-75p3 for the Apple Newton today!")
02:18:48[IDC]DragonNo music in fact. :(
02:19:07OliverKlozoffdo you still have no display?
02:20:16[IDC]DragonWhat was the thing about this display init? (I really have to look into it, I guess)
02:20:41OliverKlozoffit's a recorder right?
02:21:00OliverKlozoffhow do you get the code loaded into the device?
02:21:23[IDC]Dragonwith my UART boot feature.
02:21:33*OliverKlozoff doesn't know what your UART boot feature is
02:21:53[IDC]DragonThe ROM contains a little loader.
02:22:12[IDC]DragonNormally it descrambles a flash image and jumps there.
02:22:23*OliverKlozoff nods
02:22:40[IDC]DragonBut if you pull the LCD lines low instead of high, it goes into a different mode.
02:22:56[IDC]DragonThen it expects code fron the UART.
02:23:18OliverKlozoffit expects like SRL<cr>
02:23:24[IDC]DragonI use that to transfer a little monitor, to whom my PC can talk.
02:23:45[IDC]Dragonno, this SRL is something completely different.
02:24:01[IDC]DragonThat's done by the flash image already.
02:24:18OliverKlozoffso wait
02:24:21OliverKlozoffyou hold the 3 lines low
02:24:28[IDC]DragonWith my minimon, I init the DRAM and transfer the gdb stub.
02:24:32OliverKlozoffwhat exactly happens after that?
02:24:45[IDC]Dragonsee my postings, hang on...
02:25:36OliverKlozoffgot a copy of that minimon?
02:26:40[IDC]DragonWon't help you much, first you need the serial mod and my UART boot mod (pulldown)
02:26:48OliverKlozoffI can do anything required
02:27:16OliverKlozoffwait... what's your minimon written for?
02:27:20 Quit adi|home (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
02:27:24[IDC]DragonBut I'm not holding anything back, how about me getting it into a stable state first?
02:28:08OliverKlozoffwhat's your minimon written for?
02:28:16[IDC]DragonYou're welcome to be my validator for the FM.
02:28:28[IDC]Dragonminimon runs on the archos.
02:28:52OliverKlozoffI'm afraid I don't understand how this works
02:28:58OliverKlozoffyou pull the 3 lines low
02:29:02[IDC]Dragonthen there's a PC application controling it.
02:29:03OliverKlozoffthen it expects raw data from the serial port?
02:29:24[IDC]Dragonsortof. how about reading my postings?
02:30:09OliverKlozoff- The last two 16 bit values before the image are the "mask" value at
02:30:09OliverKlozoffaddress 0x020000FC and version at 0x020000FE, as already known. What's the mask
02:30:09OliverKlozoffvalue used for?
02:30:23OliverKlozoffis that question still unanswered?
02:30:41[IDC]DragonIn parts, yes, afaik.
02:30:57OliverKlozoffArchos has made little 'tweaks' to the hardware
02:31:11OliverKlozoffhere and there
02:31:36OliverKlozoffthose values in ROM all started at 0
02:31:39OliverKlozoffwhen they changed something
02:31:45OliverKlozoffthey took a new bit and set it to 1
02:32:02OliverKlozofffor example, at some point they changed something about the voltage applied to the LCD
02:32:24OliverKlozoffLinus's FM is easily readable at a contrast level of 32
02:32:39[IDC]Dragonyea, saw that today.
02:32:46OliverKlozoffMine is practically invisible at that setting −− I have to set it to at least 45
02:32:58LinusNOliverKlozoff: i updated the contrast init code a few moments ago
02:33:01OliverKlozoff0x020000FC <- if bit '2' is set at that particular byte
02:33:05OliverKlozoffLinusN: cool
02:33:11LinusNnow it sets the default based on the hw mask
02:34:12OliverKlozoff[IDC]Dragon: if bit '2' (or bit '1', it's 0x02 either way), is SET, the LCD display needs to default to contrast 31
02:34:25OliverKlozoffif it's CLEAR, the LCD display defaults to 49
02:35:03[IDC]Dragonso, what is this lengthy LCD log? Are the few lines at the end a summary of all the above?
02:35:12OliverKlozoffactually no
02:35:23OliverKlozoffthat's almost the startup register writes
02:35:37OliverKlozoffthe stuff way at the end is just lcd, it happens after the first stuff
02:36:23[IDC]Dragonso I care only about that very end?
02:36:54[IDC]DragonHang on, let me compare with what Rockbox does...
02:37:25LinusN[IDC]Dragon: rockbox doesn't init the lcd at all
02:37:50[IDC]Dragonts, ts...
02:38:07[IDC]DragonNo wonder I don't see anything.
02:38:17LinusNi've been trying to tell you
02:38:47[IDC]Dragonsorry, i mean.
02:38:50LinusNmaybe i wasn't clear enough
02:39:00OliverKlozoffthat might make it harder to see
02:39:02[IDC]Dragonmaybe I wasn't looking
02:39:03OliverKlozoffin which case
02:39:16OliverKlozoffat the end of that file is every single command you need to send :)
02:39:31LinusNwasy as pie
02:39:39OliverKlozoffyou can even be lazy and hardcode the hex values for now
02:39:52OliverKlozoffsince it lists them
02:40:47[IDC]DragonOliver, are you stevie's 2nd manifestation?
02:41:15OliverKlozoffthat's why
02:41:17OliverKlozoff<[IDC]Dragon> Won't help you much, first you need the serial mod and my UART boot mod (pulldown)
02:41:17OliverKlozoff<OliverKlozoff> I can do anything required
02:41:49[IDC]DragonI have a deja vu
02:42:04[IDC]Dragonmatrix flaw?
02:42:25OliverKlozoffUART boot mod (pulldown) for me consists of changing PBDR_INPUT from 0xff9f to 0xff91
02:43:16[IDC]Dragonport b, bits 1-3 must read 0, yes.
02:43:43[IDC]DragonSo you want to simulate that? I was thinking of soldering.
02:43:53*OliverKlozoff can't solder, hands too shaky
02:44:03[IDC]Dragonhave a drink!
02:44:13OliverKlozoffcan't have alcohol :P
02:44:28OliverKlozoffAmphetamines + Alcohol == Bad 4 Health
02:44:28[IDC]Dragonhave a joint!
02:44:35OliverKlozoffi'll bbl
02:44:45OliverKlozoffgotta pick up my bro
02:45:23[IDC]DragonIs the some code for sending LCD commands?
02:47:13[IDC]DragonOK, that's obvious. Not lcd.recorder.c?
02:49:19[IDC]DragonOK, I try to hack some lcd_write() calls into lcd-recorder.c then, OK?
02:49:51LinusNlcd_write(true, 0xe2); /* reset */
02:50:15LinusNin lcd_init()
02:50:30LinusNskip the contrast though
02:50:52[IDC]DragonYea, I thought so.

07:59:06OliverKlozoffsup dan
07:59:35OliverKlozoffmy eyes were opened earlier
07:59:41Bagdercool! ;-)
07:59:45Bagderwhat happened?
07:59:57OliverKlozoffyou guys don't really know all that much about how Archos's own firmware does certain things
08:00:38OliverKlozoffdid you know that there are two versions of the FMs (and maybe Recorders too), that have different LCD configurations?
08:00:55Bagderno, I didn't
08:00:58OliverKlozoffnewer ones have a lower voltage
08:01:11OliverKlozoffthus they require a higher contrast level to get the same results as older ones
08:01:43Bagderah, that's why the contrast problem exists
08:01:46OliverKlozoffthe Rockbox code just defaults to 31
08:01:49OliverKlozoffor 32
08:01:52Bagdernot anymore!
08:01:55OliverKlozoffwhich is what Linus experiences
08:02:00BagderLinus fixed that yday
08:02:10OliverKlozoffbut mine defaults to 49
08:02:25OliverKlozoffyou know why he was able to fix it?
08:04:36OliverKlozoffbtw, where do you see that? it doesn't show up on the website anywhere
08:04:50BagderI subscribe to cvs commits
08:05:05Bagderits quite useful
08:05:07***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
08:05:18OliverKlozoffyeah, since anon cvs is kaput
08:05:30Bagderyeah, a lot more since this situation started
08:06:12OliverKlozoffLinus was asking about the lcd init code
08:06:22OliverKlozoffso in about 5 minutes I whipped this up
08:06:51Bagderthat is way cool
08:07:23OliverKlozoffI used my emulator
08:07:44OliverKlozoffthen whittled down the assembler until I found that bit of code
08:08:09*OliverKlozoff smiles
08:08:14OliverKlozoffI'm actually good for something!
08:08:43OliverKlozoffif I can get the proper details out of him
08:08:58OliverKlozoffI might be able to help [IDC] with his rockbox-in-flash stuff
08:09:24OliverKlozofffor me, the 'uart boot mod' (that makes the LCD pins pull-down instead of pull-up) is a matter of changing PBDR_INPUT from 0xff9f to 0xff91
08:09:25BagderI bet he needs some early init stuff
08:09:54OliverKlozoffoh yeah, earlier today (or veyr late yesterday) I gave him the list of lcd commands archos fw sends on bootup
08:10:31OliverKlozoff <- all the way at the end of this file
08:10:36OliverKlozoffIt's actually kind of funny
08:10:53OliverKlozoffcuz you guys have apparently been trying to find those things out for a while
08:11:16OliverKlozoffand here, just the other day, I got so tired of looking at the damn stuff in my logfile that I had commented it out
08:14:10OliverKlozoffanother thing Linus wanted was the initialization commands sent to the MAS
08:14:16OliverKlozoffI don't know what he wanted those for
08:17:41OliverKlozoffi need to hit the hay

20:47:30Stevie[FP]that's not a real usb hub
20:47:36Stevie[FP]it's fictional
20:47:49Stevie[FP]the "Toaster Bus Enumerator" is an example driver that comes with the DDK
20:47:59Stevie[FP]it has a program that spawns Toaster devices on it
20:48:16Stevie[FP]I figured out how to spawn a USB Root Hub device
20:48:33Stevie[FP]which Windows will load usbhub.sys for, and will then throw a yellow '!' on because it's not really there :P
20:49:02Stevie[FP]so I patched the driver to intercept the initialization commands usbhub.sys spits out

22:39:43[IDC]DragonPoor Stevie...
22:40:08[IDC]DragonWhy do you want to emulate USB?
22:43:58Stevie[FP]because I'm pretty sure I can?
22:44:21Stevie[FP]I've already emulated enough to make Windows think that I have a real hub attached to my 'toaster bus enumerator'
22:44:24[IDC]DragonOh, that attutude again.
22:44:57Stevie[FP]sample driver, comes with windows ddk
22:45:30Stevie[FP]I patched it to report an attached device as a "USB\ROOT_HUB" and to respond to certain requests sent to said device
22:45:55[IDC]Dragonon a different subject: Can you help me a bit with the MAS?
22:45:55Stevie[FP]the original driver created Toaster devices with options like Crispness and Brownness settings
22:46:04Stevie[FP]yeah, sure
22:46:27*Stevie[FP] needs to fix up his MAS emulation, it was thrown together and barely works
22:46:42[IDC]DragonDo you think you can generate a "legible" report of the inits?
22:46:53Stevie[FP]I can give it a shot :P
22:47:01Stevie[FP]btw, have you read the MAS datasheet?

23:39:16[IDC]DragonAre we skipping init there, too, like with LCD?
23:39:34[IDC]DragonBTW, I committed the LCD init yesterday.
23:39:48LinusN[IDC]Dragon: MAS init should be ok
23:40:05LinusNbut there might be some port pins missing, like the MAS reset pin
23:40:22[IDC]DragonStevie made a log of the Archos firmware's activity.
23:40:37[IDC]DragonSH port pins?
23:41:48LinusNmas_reset looks ok
23:42:33[IDC]DragonI can pretty much rule everything out that's in the CPU I/O space, compared all that yesterday.
23:43:03LinusN[IDC]Dragon: you have the serial port connected, haven't you?
23:43:18[IDC]DragonHave to, for UART boot ;-)
23:43:29LinusNso why not use gdb?
23:43:37[IDC]DragonTo do what?
23:43:45LinusNto step in the mas init
23:44:00LinusNand read all the debug output
23:44:07[IDC]DragonYes, can do that.
23:44:16LinusNyou use a debug build?
23:44:43[IDC]DragonBut I won't see any missing init, will only see if it bails out.
23:44:57LinusNbut you may see where it bails out
23:45:09[IDC]DragonDebug, yes, that's what I used yesterday all evening long.
23:45:28LinusNno sound, that sounds like if the IRQ isn't enabled correctly
23:45:40[IDC]DragonDebug won't really run, I think it floods gdb with its traces.
23:46:00LinusNnot for me
23:46:05[IDC]DragonIRQ of CPU or MAS?
23:46:54LinusNfrom the mas
23:47:10[IDC]DragonThat would be in I/O space. Checked all that.
23:47:49[IDC]DragonIt must be something in other chips, like MAS or the I2C register, which I cannot really see.
23:48:44LinusN[IDC]Dragon: what happens when you play a song?
23:49:35[IDC]DragonIt looks all OK, slider moving, time counting, I just don't get sound. And the oscilloscope demo shows flatline.
23:50:54LinusNdoes the resume feature continue in the middle of the song or does it start from the beginning?
23:51:02LinusNdoes it ever change song?
23:51:41[IDC]DragonYes, changes song , all normal. (checking for resume now)
23:52:57LinusNthat means that the mas communication works
23:53:04LinusNand that the dma works
23:53:18[IDC]DragonResumes from the real position.
