06:16:10BlueChipget a daily build, 2.2 is ancient now :(
06:16:11SnipRbut dailybuild in a folder

06:17:18BlueChipfrom my early expereinces here, you are unlikely to get any support for old builds ...you will always be told "run the latest and tell us if we have already fixed <whatever>"

09:22:45BlueChipGood morning amiconn, guru of all things C ...how much begging might it be appropriate for me to undertake by means of a request of you help in the area of pointer-to-function
09:25:36 Join Nibbler [0] (nibbler@port-212-202-73-96.dynamic.qsc.de)
09:32:21amiconnBlueChip: Not really a guru imho... but anyway, what's your problem?
09:33:05BlueChipcoverting my card engine to a lib - I need to pass ptr-to-fn, and I just can't suss ?SOMETHING? about the syntax
09:33:46BlueChipthe best way I can think to show the problem may be to send you what won't compile atm
09:34:42amiconnHave a look at my grayscale lib (esp. gray_pixelfuncs.c, gray_blocksfuncs.c and others using the functions defined therein). I'm using function pointers there
09:34:53amiconn*gray_blockfuncs.c
09:35:23BlueChipah dammit! is it in you pre-split code?
09:36:01amiconnyes it is
09:36:05BlueChip(need to cvsup, but don't fancy all the breaks right this min)
09:37:19amiconnThe split version is the same as the pre-split one except for two constant definitions used within asm - these are duplicated in the split verison
09:37:29BlueChiphmmm, is there a fn() where you pass the pointer between functions?
09:37:34BlueChipunderstood
09:38:21BlueChipi need to pass the fn() pointer to my init routine, so deeper funcs can refer back up
09:38:23amiconnNo, I'm not passing function pointers, but use an array of function pointers.
09:39:11amiconnThe syntax for callback fn pointers is not different to other uses of fn pointers
09:39:34BlueChipI just can't see what I've got wrong - been through four tutorials so far
09:39:39BlueChipLOL
09:41:28amiconnSorry, gotta hurry now, bbiaw

09:45:35mattzzyesterday's daily build crashed greyscale stuff
09:45:45BlueChipami's just left
09:45:46mattzzis there anything known to you?
09:46:13BlueChipit was converted to a lib yesterday - maybe half of it missed the daily biuld?
09:47:17mattzzhm, I will do a new compile
09:47:40BlueChiplatest cvs might help?
09:49:07mattzzI have no CVS access here @ work - latest daily tarball will do hopefully

09:53:11BlueChip...did you do a make clean?
09:53:20mattzzIllInstr stuff or plain hang
09:53:33BlueChipso it compiles okay, and then crashes - hmmm
09:53:37mattzzwith yesterday's build
09:53:47mattzzjust checking the 20040625 tarball
09:54:05BlueChiplatest is essential

10:31:44LynxIs 'users' a windows system folder, like the recycled?
10:32:42mattzzBlueChip: 20040625 tarball should be identical to latest CVS. Same result here.
10:35:06mattzzMandbrot crashes after drawing the first gray_drawgraymap
10:45:26BlueChipgreydemo dies immeditately and then does loads of weird and interesting stuff if you keep pressing the ON button
10:49:39mattzzAnother thing: A colleague of mine was asking me if there was a chance of looping/repeating a mp3 without any pause between?
10:50:15BlueChipi think there's an repeat z-b patch on source forge
10:50:21BlueChipa-b
10:50:21BlueChiplol
10:51:21mattzzand repeating a whole mp3 always pauses for a short time, right?
10:51:35mattzzdue to reloading the buffer/disk access I guess
10:51:40BlueChipnot sure how it deals with loading the next mp3
10:52:23mattzzI want that "repeat a-b" patch!
10:53:49mattzz...but the patch is broken...

11:40:23mattzzno gray.o after make clean

11:44:31BlueChipdid you also try a clean cvs?
11:50:25mattzzAnd no gray.o before "make clean"
11:51:07amiconnNot yet, since I usually work off my local cvs copy.

15:22:58lImbusgeeeeez. I just wasted a few hours on a baaad mistake: I opened my old and my new recorder to swap the large hard drive (40GB) to the new unit. it took approx 1 hour, I was almost done when following happened:
15:23:12lImbusI was just about to put back in place those tiny black screws.
15:24:24lImbusfor easier handling, I stand up the recorder on the table, on his front to get it easier. then, one of the black screws dropped from my magnetic screwdriver, fell in the line-in-socket and dissapeared.
15:25:09lImbusI had to REOPEN the complete unit and separate the "core" which I never did before to get that $%&%& screw back
15:25:44lImbuslesson: never ever stand up the device when reassembling.

20:27:08amiconnBC: Did you get grayscale to behave in the meantime? I compared my compilations with the official daily build - all 3 plugins deliver equal md5sums
20:27:39BCi got a feeling its the new sh-1 compiler I was told to use :(
20:28:07BCbut smashing my head against gcc bugs atm
20:28:28BCstructure packing is f***ed is you extern a struct with a bool in
20:28:52BCyou can but guess how long THAT took to find
20:29:35amiconnsh-elf-gcc -v −−> gcc version 3.0.4
20:29:58BCgcc version 3.3.1 (cygming special)
20:31:24BCthink we need to chat to the dude who maintains the sh-1 compiler
20:31:29amiconnWhy are you using 3.3.1? Did I miss something, is this the new official rockbox compiler version?
20:31:30BCsome french bloke
20:32:03BCif you follow the rockbox cygwin instructions - that is the version you will run - specified to get from a specific site
20:32:51BCi notice none of the big boys have been in today
20:33:22amiconnHmm. I did follow the instructions some time ago - there was a binary package to download, which contained version 3.0.4
20:34:15amiconnIt seems that this is the version that is still used for the official compilations, since my binaries are identical to the official ones
20:40:38amiconnBC: Do rockbox and other plugins work correctly if compiled with sh-gcc 3.3.1?
20:41:20BCyep
20:42:20amiconnHmm. I'll setup a test environment with cygwin/sh-gcc 3.3.1 and see what I can do.
20:44:25BCI'm just doing the same the other way around here

20:46:17zaserhello
20:46:22BChello
20:46:33midkhi sir!!!
20:46:44zaseri got some questions about my recorder v2
20:47:10BCwe can tell ;)
20:47:14zasercan someone help me out
20:47:28BCreally depends on what the problems are
20:47:52zaserfor some reason, my recorder won't play
20:48:09BCdoes it work with archos firmware?
20:49:22zaseri choose one of my mp3s and all it does is take 15sec jumps on the song until it goes to the other song
20:49:46zaserbut you can't hear a thing
20:50:08zasermy original problem was that is wouldn't boot up at all
20:51:04zaserwhen it was working, i had rockbox on. Then i tried plugging some speakers into it and it started giving me problems
20:51:38zaserfirst it would do the same thing it's doing right now, skip through out the song
20:51:47BCdoes it work with archos firmware?
20:51:57zaserso that's when i decided to take rockbox out
20:52:33zaserafter i did, it didn't get past the half point on the loading bar with the original archos firmware
20:52:46BCso that;s a no?
20:52:51zaserno
20:53:16BCso it's a yes?
20:53:18zaserwith the original archos firmware, it wouldnt even boot all the way
20:53:28BCthen you have h/w problems
20:53:37BCdid you say v2/fm?
20:54:08zaseri got it as a v2, but the board says it's a JBR-FM v2.2
20:54:21BCi reckon the battery needs re-seating
20:54:31zasertried that so many times
20:54:33BCespecially if you have had it apart
20:54:41BChm
20:54:58zaserwhen you say re-seating, what do you mean
20:55:20zaserright now, i put rockbox back on
20:55:33BCremove battery, degrease everything, ensure good connection when replaced
20:55:47BCdoes it make any difference if you sqeeze the sides?
20:55:55zaserthis time it boots all the way to the point where i can browse through my mp3s, but it takes a long ass time
20:56:02zaserno
20:56:29BChmm, sorry, if it's more major than the battery, it's beyond me :(
20:56:35zaseri can do everything it's supposed to do, except play music
20:56:58zaserat this moment, i got it plug into my computer through the usb
20:57:26zaseri can play music off of it through the computer, so the HDD works
20:57:46zaserand i doubt it being the hardware since it's on USB right now
20:58:42BCbut the archos firmware fails?
20:58:48zaseryes
20:58:57BCif their f/w fails, then I'd really have to say hardware
20:59:14zaseri downloaded it twice off of the archos website
20:59:36BCyes, more indicators that the firmware is good
21:00
21:01:11zaserso what could be the problem
21:01:42BCsadly, if it's more major than the battery, it's beyond me :(
21:02:55zaserany suggestions
21:03:36BClook for dry solder joints & bad connections - degrease everything - make sure it is together properly
21:14:01zaserother than that
21:15:34BCsadly, if it's more major than the battery, it's beyond me :(
21:16:05BCsorry dude, I went out of my way to buy a V1

22:23:44amiconnIt seems I found the problem why grayscale doesn't work anymore with gcc 3.3.1
22:23:52BCoh yes?
22:24:16amiconnObviously gcc 3.3.1 does some more optimizations than gcc 3.0.4:
22:24:25BCahaaa
22:24:38BCit's arguing with your assembler?
22:24:59amiconnGcc 3.0.4 used to always push the pr register onto the stack at the beginning of every function, and restore it at the end.
22:25:14BCouch!
22:25:34amiconnGcc 3.3.1 optimizes this away if (it thinks that) no other function is called from this one.
22:25:54BCwhat do you cosider to be the correct solution to this predicament?
22:25:56amiconnBummer - my asm calls a subroutine without gcc noticing!
22:26:09amiconnI try to verify this atm
22:26:31BCcast the call to a pointer-to-function?
22:27:02BCeffective do_nothing, that indicates the secret function
22:27:06amiconnNo, it calls a subroutine directly from asm (via jsr)
22:27:21BCas in (void)unused_pram
22:31:29amiconnI'm currently adding the push/pop of pr to the asm routines, this should fix it on 3.3.1. It shouldn't hurt on 3.0.4 other than it adds 4 instructions (8 bytes) in total.
22:32:14BCno #if version==3.3.1 ?
22:32:54amiconnI don't know with which version of gcc this optimization was introduced...

22:33:39BC /* somwhere between 304 and 331 you need this... */
22:34:31amiconnImho this optimization by the new gcc is A Good Thing (tm), and adding the push/pop of pr is cleaner coding anyway
22:36:55BCcool :)
22:37:18amiconnWith the added instructions all grayscale plugins do work now when compiled with gcc 3.3.1
22:37:42BChope this doesn't hit anywhere else
22:37:48amiconnWhy the grayscale demo is ~2.5% slower is beyond me..
22:38:13BChmmm, that's not good
22:38:52amiconnHowever, this does not come from adding these instructions, because I only re-added what the new gcc hit away
22:40:07BCis it your fn()s are slower, or the rest of the system?
22:42:27amiconnIt seems to be that it has a cause within the plugin itself - it doesn't change if I run the gcc331-compiled plugin with gcc304-compiled rockbox
22:43:34BCwell, given the choice, I consider that option to be the better news
