01:02:13midknight2k3but rockbox would need to be modified to the karma in that it has a grayscale screen and new formats and stuf
01:02:55midknight2k3that would take a bit longer than "a while"
01:03:18midknight2k3there are a faw mp3 players i really like but rockbox keep me from them

06:46:46Guest1hello all! I have a question - if a daily build was to work on the flashed rockbox, when does the date have to be?
06:47:40Guest1the flashing rockbox feature was introduced on 7-9-03, can the daily build that i flash be a build of 7-11, or does it have to be past a certain date?

06:49:47scott666_me
06:51:26Guest1oh, cool, cn i ask you a question about flashing rockbox?
06:51:32scott666_sure
06:51:38 Nick scott666_ is now known as scott666 (~scott666@c-66-41-171-170.mn.client2.attbi.com)
06:52:32Guest1ok, i want to compile a source code file from 7-11 with a patch. will it flash onto rockbox? - the feature of flash rockbox was introduced 7-9.
06:53:01scott666sure, you can flash whatever you want
06:53:15Guest1basically what i am asking, is by what date onwards, will the daily builds be able to flash?
06:53:25Guest1i think i read somewhere that omnly certain daily builds could be flashed
06:53:37Guest1im not sure as to what the date is though
06:53:39scott666but the flash code from back then wasnt very good, you might want to update the patch to compile with the latest CVS
06:54:36scott666itd probably be easiest to just update the patch
06:54:53Guest1actually, what i am trying to do is to get a source code that ws before the charging screen got put in, becaiuse i am compiling it with the Car ignition poatch, which turns off the archos when power gets lost to it. then, it would play, when i turn on the key, and stop when i turn it off
06:55:32Guest1and i beleive that the charging screen wasnt implemented in 7-11 daily build
06:55:51scott666ahhh
06:56:07Guest1but what do u mean by the earlier ones wasnt very good?
06:56:20scott666well if all youre doing is flashing the second image, it doesnt matter
06:56:37scott666if it works, it works, and if it doesnt you can fix with with F1-boot
06:56:55scott666early on there were bugs
06:57:18Guest1what do u mean that i can fix with the F1-boot ?
06:57:50Guest1should i first put tis as an F-1 boot firmware, or as the main one?
06:57:57scott666if you hold F1 while you start you boot the original archos firmware
06:58:25scott666so if you flash something to the second image that doesnt boot at all, you can still fix it by holding F1, and reflashing
06:58:45Guest1second image?
06:59:01Guest1what is the first image? - the main .UCL file correct?
06:59:02scott666the second image is the main boot, and can be reprogrammed
06:59:17scott666the first image is the original archos, and cant be changed
06:59:40Guest1oh, i see - so there is no risk at all involved then
06:59:59Guest1unless i throw the archos out the window in frustration if it doesnt work :)
07:00
07:01:17scott666exactly
07:01:18Guest1oh, i almost fergot - where can u find old daily build files - for example the rocks of 7-11-03
07:01:34scott666CVS
07:01:39***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
07:01:50Guest1ok, thanks a lot!! u really helped
07:01:55scott666no problem
07:05:49Guest1hi, scott666, r u still there?
07:06:17scott666yuup
07:06:42Guest1im sorry, but i cant seem to find it - could you please tell me where? - i clicked on CVS in the rockbox wbsite, but i cant find it in any subfolders
07:07:25scott666i think you have to use a program to access it
07:07:48scott666ive heard of WinCVS, but i havnt used it personally
07:08:05Guest1whats that?
07:08:11scott666a program
07:08:16scott666that accesses CVS
07:08:22scott666search for it on google
07:09:03scott666but i cant help you with CVS, ive never used it
07:09:56Guest1oh, ok, thanks anyways though - im sure i'll find it

17:34:45[IDC]DragonORIGIN = 0x0FFFF000
17:35:04[IDC]Dragonthat's my current link position.
17:35:39[IDC]DragonI guess I have to do something in the linker definition file?
17:36:44Zagori don't know what you are doing, so it's hard to help. the normal rockbox code has origin 0x09000000
17:37:18*diddystar5 dosen't exactly understand the concept of 0x0ffff675 whatever could someone enlighten me :)
17:38:44Zagorit's the start address in hexadecimal notation
17:39:52diddystar5oooo now it makes sense
17:40:46[IDC]DragonZagor, i'm working on my small monitor program which is downloaded in the UART boot case.
17:41:19[IDC]DragonSo far, I've placed it into IRAM.
17:41:38[IDC]DragonBut the version 2 boot ROM is different.
17:42:05[IDC]DragonThere's no UART boot, but a monitor program already.
17:42:34[IDC]DragonI could use it to load code to the fixed DRAM location.
17:43:00[IDC]DragonSo I'd like to make my monitor fit to load from either address.

18:21:48Darth_Sebulba04heh
18:22:07IrcWorld263Does someone know what I can do with the .rock files on my archos player?
18:22:18diddystar5hey cent20 like your sound menu patch
18:22:42Darth_Sebulba04.rock's are the new plugins, no?
18:22:44diddystar5IrcWorld263: just "play" hem
18:22:49ZagorIrcWorld263: only a few plugins work on players. the jackpot game is one.
18:23:19IrcWorld263hmm, I see the icon new to al the plugins:S
18:23:32IrcWorld263*next
18:23:50Darth_Sebulba04Using gaim?
18:23:52Zagorwhich version are you running?
18:23:58Darth_Sebulba04Oh
18:24:02IrcWorld2632.0
18:24:11diddystar5update to a daily build
18:24:12Zagor2.0 doesn't support plugins. you need a daily build.
18:24:13IrcWorld263do i need another cvs
18:24:14IrcWorld263aha
18:24:16diddystar5then you can use them
18:24:19IrcWorld263thnx
18:24:25diddystar5have fun
18:24:30IrcWorld263;)
18:24:44IrcWorld263rockbox rox
18:27:08Zagor:)
18:27:37IrcWorld263Updating makes the .rockbox directory to disapear:S
18:28:24IrcWorld263oh, i found it already
18:28:48diddystar5lots of things have changed since 2.0
18:28:58[IDC]DragonZagor: got the pic linking now.
18:29:00IrcWorld263i just noticed
18:29:37IrcWorld263wow, a jackpot
18:30:12[IDC]DragonAre these pic tables documented somewhere? They don't seem to contain anything.
18:30:58Zagori don't know, i haven't looked at it very much
18:32:19 Quit diddystar5 ("Gotta go")
18:39:33[IDC]DragonPIC code runs fine, without any "treatment".
18:39:43Zagorok
18:40:01[IDC]DragonNext I've to try to load to somewhere else ;-)

20:14:25joshnI'm having trouble with my compiler setup. Can anyone help me?
20:14:35midknight2k3cygwin?
20:14:38midknight2k3sure
20:14:39joshnyep
20:14:46midknight2k3what's the problem?
20:15:06joshnthe compiler feels free to set any variables to 0 whenever it feels like it.
20:15:43joshnthat is, I set a global var in one function, and after I return, it's reset to 0.
20:16:08midknight2k3hmm
20:16:23midknight2k3never heard of that
20:16:34midknight2k3cant help there sorry
20:16:38joshnI'm not using the rockbox compile settings, per se, so it could be a difference there...
20:16:45midknight2k3perhaps
20:16:50midknight2k3probably actually

23:11:27diddystar5[IDC]Dragon: any updates on charging issues?
23:11:38[IDC]DragonFM?
23:12:15diddystar5both rec and fm
23:12:47[IDC]Dragonwhat issues with recorder?
23:13:17diddystar5i thought some people had problems with charging on the normal recorder
23:13:44[IDC]Dragonerror roporting on this was very diffuse.
23:15:13[IDC]DragonSome FMs seem to have "real" problems. like an undiscovered bit controlling their charging. Even the F1-started Archos s/w didn't charge.
23:16:03Zagorit seems regular recorders have some charging issue too, flash-related or not. it reports charging complete much too quickly.
23:16:09diddystar5humm thats weird have you dissasembled their boot-loader to see what it does?
23:17:27[IDC]DragonIn parts, yes. But my focus hasn't been on charging back then.
23:17:43diddystar5Zagor: could that have anything to do with battery capacity while charging?
23:18:06diddystar5since the default is 1500
23:18:27Zagorno
23:20:37[IDC]DragonFor the charging the screen, the algorithm is started before the settings are there. That explains some differences in calculation, but no big ones.
23:20:59Zagorit doesn't explain the differences
23:21:27Zagorthe only thing capacity is used for is max charge time, and the lower limit for that is 450 minutes
23:22:07Zagormy recorder said finished in maybe 2 hours, using a slow 9V charger. that's much much too fast.
23:22:29[IDC]DragonAnother small one is that the algorithm takes for granted that the disk was just active and tries to compensate, but which is wrong for the charging screen.
23:23:04Zagori'm tempted to blame our new flash startup, but i can't for the life of me think of how that could affect it like this
23:23:58[IDC]DragonIf some charge parameter has no reasonable default, it could.
23:24:31Zagorbut i never used the charging screen. i always boot up first, then insert the charger
23:25:25[IDC]Dragonboot sequence is the same: power thread started before settings loaded.
23:25:42[IDC]DragonI coudn't help it.
23:26:07Zagorhmm, right
23:26:28Zagorindeed, that could be it
23:27:20[IDC]DragonWhat can we do?
23:27:45Zagori'm not sure. i'm looking at it.
23:28:33[IDC]DragonI'm tempted to split the settings loading into 2 pieces: one for RTC and a later one for disk.
23:29:16[IDC]DragonFor the RTC models, this would allow to have "vital" settings available before the disk is ready.
23:29:30Zagori'm rather thinking a different solution for the charging screen: only enter it if disk spinup fails, then retry spinup every 10 minutes or so
23:30:23[IDC]DragonSounds very unstable. The disk spinup can cause a brownout.
23:30:52Zagorwell, theoretically yes. but has it actually ever happened?
23:31:14diddystar5im curious, could that 44 bytes of battery backed up memory be used to store the battery capacity, and be loaded be the charging screen algorithm
23:31:19[IDC]DragonI think it is most likely.
23:31:42[IDC]Dragon(brownout, I mean)
23:32:20Zagori'm not so sure about that. you need a serious voltage drop, as in busted batteries, for that to happen
23:33:31[IDC]DragonThe disk sucks so much power that while discharged battery will easily power up the CPU with a few milliamps, but the spinup current with magnitudes higher load will bring it to it's knees.
23:34:16Zagorwe need some testing. never booting on dc connect is very high price to pay.
23:34:45[IDC]DragonThat's what it's been all the time, right?
23:35:03Zagoryes, and that has been very annoying for those who use it in cars for example
23:36:29[IDC]DragonI know, that car and powerup topic is interesting.
23:36:47diddystar5what about that 44 bytes of battery backed-up memory??? can't it be used for settings???
23:37:10[IDC]Dragondiddystar5: it can, but not for all models.
23:37:12Zagordiddystar5: it is used already. that's what dragon was talking about "splitting"
23:37:41diddystar5ok
23:38:02[IDC]DragonI have to leave you guys with these thoughts, bedtime for me.
23:38:16diddystar5bye
