#rockbox log for 2004-09-02

00:00:21zeekoehave not tried, but the outside is quite directly connected to the inside, and the harddisk
00:00:29zeekoe=> noise
00:00:32zeekoe(i think)
00:00:40Elemenoto be honest... I accidentally broke the black wire, so I decided to yank the red one as well
00:00:46zeekoe:)
00:00:47Elemenoso I'll have to figure out some way to reattach it anyway
00:00:53 Join LinusN [0] (~linus@labb.contactor.se)
00:01:16zeekoeyou broke it on the jukebox side, or the mic side?
00:01:20zeekoeor somewhere in between?
00:01:35Elemenobasically broke it away from the jukebo
00:01:42Elemeno+x. so the mic itself has both wires connected to it
00:03:29zeekoehm... bad
00:03:54 Quit silencer ("Lost terminal")
00:03:58ElemenoI would guess it could be reattached by solder or rubber cement or something
00:04:01ElemenoI would hope :)
00:04:28zeekoeprobably
00:04:38zeekoemaybe you have to remove the cpu board though
00:04:40bagawkstrange wires connected to it?
00:04:47bagawkwhat unit do you have?
00:04:56ElemenoI have an FM recorder
00:05:03bagawkohh
00:05:06 Part LinusN
00:05:12bagawkthe mic in the v1 is easy to replace
00:05:35bagawkall you would need to do is take off the fronts cover
00:05:59 Join silencer [0] (~silencer@dyn-213-36-104-61.ppp.tiscali.fr)
00:06:15zeekoebagawk: is it?
00:06:23Elemenohmm
00:06:38bagawkhumm it may be a bit hard to unsolder with just the front cover off
00:06:46zeekoeok
00:06:53zeekoehopes gone...
00:07:00zeekoei'll get some solder wick
00:07:09bagawkyou could still do it
00:07:22zeekoeyeah, making the mic _really_hot :P
00:07:34Elemenohey, do you guys know where I would look to get a replacement mic this size or additional wire this small?
00:07:54zeekoeyou didnt broke the mic, did you?
00:08:22ElemenoI don't think so. just the red and black wires are now detached from the board
00:08:28zeekoein the US, there seems to be something called 'radio shack' where you can probably buy stuff like this
00:08:36zeekoeok, then you probably wont need a new mic
00:08:56zeekoejust strip a bit off the wires, and solder them back
00:09:08zeekoeor get new wires
00:09:29Elemenoyeah, that's what I'm thinking −− new wires. I'd like to have them a bit longer
00:10:42Elemenonow, I haven't ever soldered, myself. my brother has a kit. is it pretty simple to do? or would I be safer with rubber cement?
00:12:01zeekoeuh
00:12:03zeekoerubber cement?
00:12:08zeekoeis that conducting?
00:12:13zeekoedoesnt sound like it is

00:12:46gromit`awcya
00:12:50zeekoenight
00:12:51Elemenothen as far as soldering...
00:13:04Elemenoso long
00:14:08zeekoeyou can perhaps buy a small pcb with holes, and some cheap components and practice a bit
00:14:40zeekoei can say it isnt hard, but i've been soldering for 10 years, since i was nine :)
00:14:48bagawkjust get a dead board of some type, and try with that
00:15:17Elemenooh ok
00:15:19zeekoeyeah, good idea, thats cheaper too :)
00:15:37ElemenoI have some of those around, I'm sure

06:36:57Elemenodoes anyone know anything about the archos LCD screen?
06:39:17midkhm, ask.
06:40:38Elemenowell... I noticed there's a chip in the black part of the screen (the part normally covered up by the case), and now when I turn the Archos on, the top of the screen flickers black, and the bottom half is completely blank
06:41:06midk..did you tamper with it?
06:41:22***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
06:41:40ElemenoI took it apart, but somehow this little piece got chipped off. I'm not sure how
06:42:00Elemenothe actual screen part looks fine, but this black piece is chipped, and then I noticed the problem with the screen
06:42:45midkthe 'black piece' is probably quite important

06:44:21midki suppose not

08:53:39amiconnLinusN: I'm not absolutely sure, but I think our implementation of O_TRUNC in file.c is not correct. From what I could find, O_TRUNC just specifies that the file should be truncated to zero length at open(), not that it should be truncated to the file pointer position on close.
08:55:32LinusNpossible
08:55:54LinusNthe current implementation in rockbox is a performance optimization
08:58:38LinusNwe could add some logic to keep track of the file size, so it only removes the information beyond the newly created information
08:59:46LinusNif we truncate the file on open(), we waste lots of time freeing clusters that will be reallocated again when new information is written
08:59:58amiconnYes. I could think of something like a "truncate pointer". If a file is opened with O_TRUNC, this is set to 0, without O_TRUNC it is set to the file size
09:00
09:00:11amiconnftruncate() would set this pointer directly
09:00:25LinusNsomething like that, yes
09:00:53amiconnwhen writing, the truncate pointer is set to the file pointer if the file pointer is greater than the truncate pointer
09:01:05LinusNyup
09:01:25LinusNwant me to do it, or do you want to do it?
09:01:55LinusNhave a meeting now, gotta go
09:02:19amiconnI think we should first verify if the behaviour is thought of correct

10:41:33[IDC]Dragon'morning
10:44:09[IDC]DragonBagder, are or will you be on the ROMbox building?
10:44:28[IDC]Dragonsince we talked about it recently
10:45:24Bagderyes, I want to make that build out-of-the-box
10:47:10[IDC]DragonI think you're not using gcc 3.3.1 currently, do you?
10:47:23[IDC]Dragonthat one seems the best choice
10:49:10[IDC]Dragonamiconn: have you tries compiling with -Os (optimize for space)?
10:49:24[IDC]Dragons/tries/tried
10:49:47Bagderwe're still using 3.0.4 for the automatic builds
10:50:04[IDC]Dragongood reason to switch ;-)
10:50:51Bagderyes
10:51:40dwihno[IDC]Dragon: Have you gotten 3.4.x to generate binaries?
10:51:41Bagderstill, the build process should check the output size or something
10:52:17[IDC]Dragondwihno: I haven't even gotten 3.4 to compile... :-(
10:52:28amiconn[IDC]Dragon: I did try to compile with -Os. This caused a warning that I fixed, so rockbox now compiles cleanly with -Os. However, I didn't test the resulting binaries
10:52:34dwihno[IDC]Dragon: Hmm... Error?
10:52:55[IDC]Dragondwihno: it was something strange, but I don't remember
10:53:09dwihno[IDC]Dragon: ah, okay... too bad.
10:53:31[IDC]Dragondwihno: sorry, that was with 3.3.1. I didn't try 3.4, since it generates larger code
10:53:52amiconndwihno: I tried gcc 3.4. This creates larger binaries than 3.3, see my wiki article about rombox
10:54:06[IDC]Dragonand I read some people not recommending 3.4 in general
10:56:50dwihnoamiconn, [IDC]Dragon: Ah, okay.
10:58:13[IDC]DragonI'd really like to get 3.3.1 running on my system, nobosy else had problems :-(
10:59:13dwihnoJust do exactly as someone else has done :) ?
10:59:16amiconn[IDC]Dragon: Did you try BlueChip's devkit. Iirc that contains gcc 3.3.1
10:59:20amiconn?

12:38:38dwihnoNot such a bad idea, huh?
12:39:02scott666theres people from all kinds of weird places on the mailing list
12:39:56scott666course i suppose the definition of weird changes quite a bit from person to person

12:59:57GugLacerAnyway, can I record from a normal mic? Which box should I buy?
13:00
13:02:01Zagoryou need a mic preamplifier
13:02:20Zagorthe archos input is line-level which expects much higher levels than a microphone gives

14:15:35GugLacerhow is the quality you get by recording this way? How does it compared to sticking a mic into a PC soundcard?

14:23:51 Quit EvilDude ()
14:25:02ZagorGugLacer: yes, i've done it a few times using the archos mic+preamp
14:25:28GugLacerdid it come out good?
14:25:46Zagoryeah, pretty good.
14:26:02GugLacerany recommendations regarding which mic+preamp to buy?
14:26:15GugLaceror do they come with the box?
14:26:23Zagori think there are some in the faq on our webpage
14:26:30Zagorno, the mic is an extra
14:27:46GugLacerI already have a dynamic mic, with plug like an electric guitar's
14:28:37GugLacershould that fit?
14:31:17Zagorno
14:31:41GugLacerthanks.
14:31:51GugLacerjust one more question:
14:32:35GugLacerwhich is the cheapest box that will allow me to record with this kind of quality?
14:34:23Zagori think the archos is probably the cheapest
14:35:40GugLacerwhich model?
14:37:18Zagorthey only sell one model i think
14:41:30***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
14:42:04GugLacerwell, I've seen a few names: Archos Jukebox 5000, 6000, Studio, Recorder, FM Recorder and Recorder V2 MP3 players
14:42:41LinusNyou need one of the recorder models
14:42:43GugLacerwill all of them record with an external mic+preamp?
14:43:04GugLaceris the Studio also a recorder model?
14:44:26LinusNthe models with "recorder" in the name are recorder models
14:46:05GugLacercan I put the music out into my stereo speakers?
14:46:29GugLaceror is it only meant to be used with headphones?
14:48:57LinusNyou can connect the Ear output to your stereo
14:49:39dwihnoAlso, you can use the digital out feature
14:49:48dwihnoHow do you use that btw? :)
14:50:55LinusNhttp://rockbox.haxx.se/docs/faq.html#72
14:51:08dwihno\o/ Svar på tal \o/
14:52:30GugLacerwhen recording, can you play along with a rhythm, MIDI accompaniment or something similar?
14:52:47 Join Bagder [0] (~daniel@1-1-5-26a.hud.sth.bostream.se)
14:53:16[IDC]Dragonhi daniel, nice to have you as a "user" again
14:53:25[IDC]Dragondoes it work?
14:53:33Bagderit works
14:53:46dwihnoLinusN: Basically, one should be able to "copy" music digitally by simply connecting the digital ports and recording on the "receiver"-side?
14:53:48GugLacerCan you do multi-track recording?
14:54:09Zagorno
14:54:15GugLacerdang!
14:54:30Zagormp3 is stereo only
14:54:31GugLaceris someone working on it though?
14:55:10Bagderno linux 2.6 "how to mount your archos" anywhere?
14:55:13GugLacersure, but it could be stored as multiple MP3s
14:55:52ZagorGugLacer: the hardware can't do it
14:56:22GugLaceris it not possible to play a file while recording another one?
14:56:29Zagorno
14:56:59LinusNdwihno: yes, but the archos recorder compresses to MP3, so the copy won't be identical
14:57:33dwihnoLinusN: True, but you would still get a digital transferred (so-called) copy
14:57:52dwihnoLinusN: we need some serial linking software :)
14:57:56Zagordwihno: yes, but it would be worse and worse for every copy
14:58:08dwihnoLinusN: an archos<−−>archos file transfer plugin
14:58:34dwihnoZagor: Indeed. I just wanted to make sure I get the theory correct in the ol' noodle
14:59:07LinusNthe S/PDIF stream contains copyright information
14:59:44LinusNso a "well-behaved" S/PDIF recorder should not record streams with the copyright bit set
14:59:57LinusNfyi, rockbox is not well-behaved
15:00
15:00:20Bagderhey
15:00:26Bagderhow do I mount the thing?
15:00:46Bagderit is present in /proc/bus/usb/devices
15:01:24GugLacerZagor: what size is the mic in? the same as a PC?
15:01:25LinusNBagder: when did you turn into a lamer?
15:01:57BagderI've never mounted it under 2.6
15:02:01ZagorGugLacer: http://www.minidisc.org/images/archos_mic_and_preamp.jpg
15:02:13BagderI've always been a lamer
15:02:16BagderI just hide it at times
15:03:06Bagder2.6 is a lot less obvious on this than 2.4 was
15:03:28Zagoryes, usb devices get new device names for each connect
15:03:48Zagoryou need to use a helper daemon like udev to assign a symbolic device name to it
15:03:51Bagderyes, and it doesn't say what device name it is using right now
15:04:05Zagori can help you when I get home...
15:04:21Bagderok, can you beam me a mail/write a wiki page?
15:04:33Zagoryup
15:04:44Bagderthere's a little rascal here pulling me anyway right now ;-)

22:15:01Bagderamiconn: is GCC 3.3.1 better than say 3.3.4 for rombox?
22:16:09amiconnCan't tell. As I'm on cygwin, I use the precompiled GCC package. I didn't get GCC 3.3.x to compile (unlike GCC 3.4.x, which compiles under cygwin)
22:16:11dwihnoWe need const:igare code :)
22:16:35Bagderok
22:16:46BagderI'll get 3.3.4 and I'll find out then! ;-)

22:40:58Bagderyes
22:41:43***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
22:42:56amiconnThe file handling doesn't behave Posix like (the handling of O_TRUNC is wrong, this morning I briefly talked with Linus about that)
22:43:42Bagderoh
22:43:46Bagderbadness
22:46:04amiconnThis is why the fix for playlist.c is needed - if the O_TRUNC handling were correct, it would be unnecessary. I found that because I wondered why it worked in the sim, but not on the target
22:46:31BagderI noticed that fix and I thought it looked weird
22:47:46amiconnYes.. It opens the file with creat() (includes O_TRUNC), immediately closes it again (to effectively create a zero-byte file), then reopens it without O_TRUNC to avoid the broken handling

23:11:25LinusNthe 3.3 series has a bug in the sh1 target
23:11:32[IDC]Dragonhi Uski, the man I'm looking for
23:11:36uskiwow
23:11:38*uski is proud
23:11:43BagderLinusN: you worked around it?
23:11:46LinusNthat makes it hard to build without a target library
23:11:56LinusNyes, build it with newlib
23:12:02[IDC]DragonI have that board ready (=spare) now
23:12:08uskiooooo
23:12:12uskiinteresting :D
23:12:15Bagderoh
23:12:23LinusNlike we did in the old days
23:12:31[IDC]Dragonwill ship it soonish

23:21:22uskiand usually they are using "strange" power connectors
23:21:29uskithe kind you can't find in any shop :)
23:21:37LinusNthis one looks pretty common
23:21:48BagderLinusN: your work-around seems to work nicely
23:22:00uskion my previous laptop, i wanted to have a car charger : i was not able to find a plug that would fit the power connector, i had to take the one of my Epson scanner and replace the connector and the plug

23:23:33LinusNBagder: took me quite some time to find out
23:23:47LinusNall web pages describe a much simpler workaround
23:23:55BagderI can understand that! I'll update the wiki-page
23:24:06LinusNbut that workaround works for all targets *but* the SH1
23:24:52uski"to the core dev team": i bought some flash chips for my recorder, and i have some I would like to donate to "the rockbox project". do you know anyone in need of them ? (SST39VF020, not blank, flashed with something unknown)
23:25:00LinusNBagder: is your recorder USB1.1?
23:25:10Bagderno
23:25:27Bagder2.0
23:25:29Bagderrec20
23:25:47LinusNgood, i feared that only older recorders had black bumpers
23:26:07uskii had a rec20/usb2 with black bumpers
23:26:13uskibut im downgrading to usb1 :(
23:26:42Bagderit says 2.0 on the outside
23:26:45LinusNuski: after the unsuccessful flash replacement?
23:27:12uskiLinusN: yea. [idc]dragon is kindly giving me an "old" USB1 CPU board
23:27:12Bagderbtw, gcc 3.3.4 build failed anyway
23:27:17Bagdernot at all annoying
23:27:22LinusNBagder: how?
23:27:36uskiLinusN : if you want to get some practice for your repair shop i may send you my old cpu board :)

23:34:05hardeepamiconn: nice catch on that playlist bug, it explains problems reported by a few other users. I also agree with you that the correct bug fix is in the file code.
23:34:40amiconnhi hardeep! Long time no see (and I didn't notice you come in)
23:35:21amiconnYes, I digged up some posix docs today. The O_TRUNC behaviour in rockbox is wrong

23:36:48hardeepyeah, although it looks like it would be pretty easy to fix. We keep a tally of the current file size don't we?
23:38:05amiconnYes. I *think* it should be possible to set the file->size entry to 0 if opened with O_TRUNC (and get rid of the file->trunc struct member), but I don't know whether this would break the fat handling

23:38:53hardeephmmmm, it might
23:39:34hardeepi guess we could always store two sizes
23:40:22amiconnIn fact, setting file->size to 0 would be a requirement with O_TRUNC, because otherwise, if the program asks for the file size, it would be reported wrong
23:41:24amiconnWe could simply truncate for real on open, but this would discard the performance optimization that the current implementation is intended for

23:42:43hardeepyeah, and not really needed
