01:12:48diddystar5before it became a plugin yes
01:14:14ironii do...
01:15:39ironisounded like i was the only one in the world still owning a player =)
01:16:44hardeepdiddystar5: looks like it was intentionally removed by Zagor when he converted it to a plugin... he'd be the one to ask
01:18:06diddystar5i don't know in bounce.c, the code for the clock is still there
01:19:17diddystar5never mind it looks like your right, the clock is defined but never used
01:19:18hardeepdiddystar5: yes, but it's been #ifdef'd out (USE_CLOCK)

03:45:06thumy suggestion would be to wait until it sneaks its way into a nightly build
03:45:17thuto use a patch you have to compile your own rockbox

03:47:14Neothe one i want is under patches

20:11:22adi|home1. learn how to do this all on your own and add patches/test code whenever you want
20:11:34adi|home2. keep relying on the random acts of strangers
20:11:54adi|home3. wait for the patches to get integrated into the main tree (if/when) happens.
20:12:06Neoid like one
20:12:14Neocan u briefly explain how to do this
20:12:19adi|homeso.. are you on linux or windows?
20:12:23Neobecause the other dox confused me
20:12:30adi|homeno.. i can't.. but i can point youto the docs that will teach you

20:17:13Quelsarukhardeep: don't you think that we should create a .rockbox dir if it doesn't exist? to work with dinamic playlists and so on :)
20:17:41hardeepMT: the daily source tarballs are a good way to get almost latest source without worrying about SF cvs
20:18:02hardeepQuelsaruk: yes, we should.... unfortunately, mkdir() hasn't been implemented yet in the fat code
20:18:45hardeepMT: you can also access latest CVS from rockbox site... e.g.
20:18:59hardeepMT: combine that with wget and you have another way of getting latest cvs

22:11:33midknight2k3how is rombox?
22:12:07[IDC]DragonI released it today to Jose Maria.
22:12:15midknight2k3it is fully functional?
22:12:33[IDC]DragonI'd like to do one at a time currently, to avoid broken boxed piling up.
22:12:55midknight2k3so it'd done?
22:12:56[IDC]DragonIt works for him, but the HD startup is unstable.
22:13:07midknight2k3very cool
22:13:23midknight2k3is there a way to replace archos rom?
22:13:32[IDC]DragonIt gived ATA error -1, but gets out of it if USB is plugged and unplugged.
22:13:43midknight2k3that's weird
22:13:51[IDC]DragonYou have the wrong chip?
22:14:07midknight2k3I meant is there a way to restore archos firmware to rom
22:14:16[IDC]DragonYou mentioned replacing it.
22:14:23midknight2k3oh lol
22:14:42[IDC]DragonYes, certainly, you can burn the old stuff back in.
22:14:42midknight2k3I meant replacing rockbox in rom with archos firmware
22:14:52midknight2k3a good idea i just had!
22:15:01[IDC]DragonWhich is?
22:15:05midknight2k3make a program where you load any AJZ file and it will load it to rom
22:15:21midknight2k3so you can have new dailybuilds and restore archos and stuff
22:15:37[IDC]DragonAs I said in the group, that's not so easy because of memory restrictions.
22:16:26[IDC]Dragondescrambling and compressing works better when you have memory for the full thing.

22:16:44midknight2k3yeah and I know nothing about it :)
22:17:25Stevie[FP][IDC]Dragon: i saw a conversation earlier between you and Z, you had said you didn't need to sleep() because the ATA stuff started up fast enough?
22:18:12[IDC]Dragonslow enough, you mean.
22:18:20Stevie[FP]something like that
22:18:36Stevie[FP]it would seem you know what I mean though
22:18:47Stevie[FP]well wait
22:19:06Stevie[FP]in order for it to be ready at a certain time
22:19:07[IDC]DragonI need to find out if USB is plugged, and for that some ADC measurements must have happened. They work from a different thread.
22:19:34*Stevie[FP] notes that he has a patch for the current ADC stuff, it could run faster
22:19:48midknight2k3i gotta go
22:19:52 Quit midknight2k3 ()
22:19:56[IDC]DragonBut while we wait for the disk, these measurements happen.
22:20:05Stevie[FP]that adc stuff could happen faster tho
22:20:23[IDC]Dragonwhat do you mena? Each tich samples one channel.
22:20:34Stevie[FP]actually that's not quite accurate
22:20:43Stevie[FP]if you read the spec sheet
22:20:54Stevie[FP]when we set it to sample channel 3
22:20:59Stevie[FP]the adc actually samples channels 0, 1, 2, and 3
22:21:15 Join Guest [0] (
22:21:25Stevie[FP]we could actually update those samples about four times as fast as we do now

22:21:56Wursthi all!
22:22:04Stevie[FP]you said that the drive is ready by the time we check usb
22:22:32[IDC]DragonI check USB after the ATA init (which waits for the drive).
22:22:57[IDC]DragonIf it's plugged, I don't auto-rolo
22:23:01Stevie[FP]<[IDC]Dragon> It gived ATA error -1, but gets out of it if USB is plugged and unplugged.
22:23:05Stevie[FP]what is 'ata error -1'?
22:23:36[IDC]Dragonlook into the code, I didn't yet.
22:23:43Stevie[FP]ok how about this
22:23:51Stevie[FP]how do you know you're getting 'ata error -1'?
22:24:09[IDC]DragonThe box gives a panic srceen
22:24:36Stevie[FP]if (master_slave_detect())
22:24:36Stevie[FP]return -1;
22:24:58Stevie[FP]the status bit is indicating busy
22:25:32[IDC]DragonYea, I'm browsing through that now, too.
22:26:02Stevie[FP]i don't see where
22:26:06Stevie[FP]according to the code i have here
22:26:11[IDC]Dragonmy wait code is in check_registers(), which is the thirs step.
22:26:12Stevie[FP]usb is checked before ata
22:26:17[IDC]Dragonthird step.
22:26:26Stevie[FP]now, it may be a little old
22:26:31[IDC]DragonI should move that higher up.
22:26:48Stevie[FP]the code i have right here says
22:27:07Stevie[FP]actually there's a backlight_init and button_init in there
22:27:09[IDC]DragonUSB after ata in main::init
22:27:19Stevie[FP]ok, they must have moved it
22:27:21[IDC]Dragonnot init, using values.
22:27:41Wurstsorry, is there anybody who knows about a opensource-project for the ajb multimedia?
22:27:53Stevie[FP]Wurst: not I
22:27:56[IDC]DragonThe init is before, whis is what I want. So the thread is installed and collects measurements.
22:31:33[IDC]DragonDoes anybody know the registry keys to disable autoplay per drive?
22:31:52[IDC]DragonI'ts just pissing me off.
22:36:33devZer0IDC: i`m not sure - but perhaps this helps:
22:38:19[IDC]DragonHmm, I'm also not shure. The Powertoys can do it, but I was trying to avoid installing them just for this detail.
22:39:04devZer0google: disable autoplay xp gives lots of hits - but very different ones :)
22:39:34devZer0for me, it is "off" - but i don`t remember anymore, how i did disable that :D

22:56:30[IDC]DragonLinus made that for me when I started.
22:57:29devZer0is it in the latest build?
22:57:40[IDC]DragonThat's how it all began, me disassembling the boot ROM.
22:58:28devZer0ok -will take a look
23:02:20Stevie[FP]I doubt having an emulator hurt much
23:03:02[IDC]DragonYes, your LCD findings were also very helpful.
23:03:11Stevie[FP]ty :D
23:03:11[IDC]DragonHow is the project going?
23:03:14devZer0whooha. coool. somebody interested in some other useful stuff? sorry to be "off topic" - but perhaps someone is interested in a cool way to tunnel a samba share via ssh and mount that on a windows box. i can mount my vserver on the internet now as a "network drive" :)
23:03:20Stevie[FP]I'm in a fight with Windows
23:03:25Stevie[FP]I'm trying to emulate a serial port

23:04:07[IDC]Dragonhoe is it emulated? what's on the other end?
23:04:22devZer0thats what i asked myself , too :)
23:04:41[IDC]Dragonand what did you answer yourself?
23:05:09devZer0it`s still a question :D

23:08:29devZer0ahhh - someone i can ask if i need a regex :D
23:08:41MTregex i can do :)
23:09:27MTis the loaded module unable to access 'stuff' in the main rockbox firmware?
23:09:48MTcan it _only_ do things prescribed in the plugin api?

23:26:32hardeepMT: yes, only what's in the plugin api is available to plugins
23:27:53hardeepMT: ie. you cannot access the global_settings structure
23:28:19MTwell, how CAN i access it?
23:28:48MTand the other stuff, like the menu functions?
23:29:05MTthe plugin idea is good, but it shouldnt restrict what we can already do
23:29:18Stevie[FP]the problem is doing it right
23:29:23 Quit Morel_ ("ChatZilla 0.8.31 [Mozilla rv:1.4/20030624]")
23:29:49Stevie[FP]plugins should store their configurations in some sort of dotfile under /.rockbox
23:30:17MTmine already does
23:30:22MTbut it draws menus
23:30:34MTand it draws them in a style that reflects the users preferences
23:33:27Stevie[FP]i can understand that
23:33:32Stevie[FP]we need a more solid API
23:33:58MTalso, i found myself having to add really basic functions to the api
23:34:11Stevie[FP]makes sense
23:34:23MTlike lcd_setmargins
23:34:31hardeepMT: as Zagor mentioned in his e-mail, he only added functions that were being used by the current set of plugins
23:34:44hardeepMT: the design is intended so that new apis can be added easily, if needed
23:34:55Stevie[FP]Rockbox is great, but it suffers from the 'progressive development' syndrome
23:35:15Stevie[FP]early on, a certain task had to be performed once
23:35:32Stevie[FP]so the code was put wholesale into the function that needed to perform that task
23:35:51Stevie[FP]then later on, some other function needed to do the same thing
23:35:57MThardeep: thats not_strictly_ true, wormlet did use lcd_setmargins, but in the new pluginform, it wasnt
23:36:14hardeepMT: in that case, Zagor must have had a reason to remove it
23:36:32Stevie[FP]rather than split out the task into a function that can be called from either, they just did a copy-and-paste
23:37:10MTthe reason is that the only time it is sensible to setmargins is when you have checked to see whether the user has requested a statusbar or not
23:37:21MTthe only way to see that is to examine global_settings
23:37:31MTand the API doesnt (yet) provide that
23:39:07ironitracktheripper see,s to be interested in my palyer
23:39:17ironii missed him again
23:39:22ironimaybe he wants to buy it
23:39:54MTim just reading the man page for dlopen
23:40:23Stevie[FP]MT: I would suggest tthis
23:40:24MTim assuming there is some reason why we cannot link rockbox with -rdynamic ?
23:40:58Stevie[FP]... lots of technical reasons
23:41:07Stevie[FP]i would suggest this
23:41:07MT(im really quite out of my league with loadable modules and whatnot, sorry if im asking stupid questions)
23:41:31Stevie[FP]lcd_setmargins() is used to account for status bar and cursor type, right?
23:42:04Stevie[FP]thus it would make more sense if instead we had some version of lcd_setmargins() that would automatically account for those settings
23:42:17Stevie[FP]and then simply return the maximum width/height
23:42:35MTthat would make more sense
23:42:46Stevie[FP]then you wouldn't need to worry about font height, or the global settings
23:42:53Stevie[FP]other than maybe the cursor type
