#rockbox log for 2005-05-06

00:00:21amiconnthegeek: No hold button, and few buttons in general
00:00:24LinusNpreglow: up for a test?
00:00:35preglowLinusN: of course
00:00:37thegeekah
00:00:39thegeekthat sucks;)
00:01:03amiconnl/r/u/d, with r doubling as 'play', a mode button, and an on/off button
00:01:12LinusNin crt0.S change the %cacr write from 0x80000000 to 0x80000300
00:01:27LinusNthis changes the default cache settings from off to on
00:01:41LinusNin case i screwd up the ACRx settings
00:01:52preglowokie
00:01:56*rasher crosses any available limb
00:02:34LinusNthe %acr0 setting *looks* ok, but...
00:03:40thegeekLinusN : you getting a h320 == you making a bootloader for it?
00:03:58LinusNthat's the plan
00:04:02thegeek:)
00:04:31thegeekdid you use your own money?
00:04:33LinusNdon't hold your breath though, i'm a very busy man
00:04:33thegeekif so
00:04:41LinusNi used the donated money
00:04:43thegeekah
00:04:44thegeekgood
00:04:53thegeek:(
00:04:54thegeekI mean
00:04:55thegeek:)
00:04:55DBUGEnqueued KICK thegeek
00:04:55thegeek;)
00:05:27preglowLinusN: same results
00:05:36LinusNfigures
00:06:02preglowi don't really expect the cache settings to be wrong
00:06:10LinusNme neither :-)
00:06:26LinusNis the source still on your web server?
00:06:33preglowi _really_ noticed a difference back when you switched it on
00:06:43preglowhttp://glow.m0f0.net/rockbox/imdct_mcf5249.S
00:07:14LinusNgreat, i might have a look next time i'm running the bdm
00:07:21LinusNgotta go now

00:08:07amiconnBagder: For the FM/v2, holding 'On' could work. This has no function in the browser, and in the wps this calls the pitch screen, which shouldn't be a problem
00:08:47amiconnOn the Ondio it's a ral problem...
00:08:48Bagderon? it toggles between the WPS and the browser
00:08:59Bagderdoesn't it?
00:08:59amiconnHold 'On'
00:09:05Bagderah, ok
00:09:11amiconnShort 'On' does the toggle
00:10:00amiconnThere's a bug in the settings handling I don't know how to solve
00:10:23amiconnThe settings are only saved when leaving the menu
00:10:51amiconn...which isn't a problem on the v1 recorder, because safe shutdown requires to leave the menu anyway
00:11:25amiconnHowever, on FM, v2, and Ondio this isn't required, and on the player it's even better not to leave the menu
00:11:37amiconn...because safe shutdown is a menu option
00:12:58amiconnSafe shutdown does save the config sector, but the config sector doesn't get updated
00:13:27amiconnOn the other hand, it would be a bad idea to always update the config sector before shutdown
00:13:58amiconn...because this would always cause a spinup, even if nothing's changed
00:18:39preglowblarghh
00:18:51preglowloop in iram does indeed make quite a bit of difference
00:19:10HCl?
00:19:20preglowwhy the shell should this be so
00:20:13HClsounds like a cache problem..
00:20:40preglowyes, but the cache does indeed seem to be configured correctly
00:23:10HClsounds hopeful :)
00:25:03preglowwhy, yes
00:25:13preglowbut i still refuse to believe this sleek, nice, lovely code can be slow

00:40:15preglownow this IS interesting
00:41:13rasherprogress or weirdness?
00:42:35preglowi THINK i've disabled the cache
00:42:38preglowand i can see now difference
00:42:46preglowbut i probably haven't disabled the cache, heh

01:03:11cool2bdaveHi I am trying to Setup either Cygwin or the Rockbox Development kit (Blue Chip)
01:03:37cool2bdaveI have installed Both and sh-elf-gcc in Cygwin
01:03:44cool2bdaveit says it is not found
01:07:46Bagderwhen you do what?
01:07:46cool2bdaveI have installed sh-elf-gcc-3.4.3-EL-1.tar.bz2 gcc-ada-3.3.5.tar.bz2 sh-elf-binutils-2.15-EL-1.tar.bz2 binutils-2.16.tar.gz in Cygwin
01:08:19cool2bdaveconfigure and make
01:09:01Bagderand your path contains the dir for the compiler and tools?
01:11:30cool2bdaveI am new to the Cygwin game, what do you mean by path
01:12:20Bagderthe path is the list of dirs the system checks when you entered a command
01:12:35Bagderwindows has the path concept as well
01:12:45Bagderecho $PATH
01:12:51Bagderin cygwin should display it
01:14:40cool2bdaveIn s it the place where command prompt keeps its excecutables
01:14:56cool2bdave(In windows)
01:15:09Bagderno, it is the same thing in windows
01:15:17Bagderthe list of dirs it checks when you type a command name
01:15:32Bagdercommands being excutables
01:15:55cool2bdaveright
01:16:52Bagderbut cygwin uses its own path, separate from windows (of course)
01:23:09*Bagder &
01:26:59cool2bdaveWHere do I change it and what should it include
01:29:08rasheryou change it by doing something like PATH=/path/number1:/path/number2:$PATH (adds number1 and 2 to the current value)
01:29:28rasherit should include the dir where the binaries of gcc are
01:29:33rashersh-elf-gcc, that is

13:07:51HClthats a bit odd, wth were you doing with the disk when it got plugged out?
13:07:53PuckNeothe thing is that the archos holds it;s setting into files that were corrupted
13:08:05PuckNeo:9
13:08:08t0masso it won't boot?

13:09:03PuckNeoand restart it
13:09:17PuckNeoit doesnt hold the time i just set :(
13:09:33PuckNeoso i was wondering if anyone has an av420
13:09:45PuckNeoso can send me the data files zipped
13:09:57t0mashm... you have 2 things you can do... 1. get a data recovery tool and try to repair the disk. 2. send it to archos, and ask them what's wrong
13:09:58PuckNeoto format the disc and putt
13:10:07PuckNeo2.
13:10:07t0masdon't tell them what you did to it
13:10:38t0masof and 3. just format it
13:10:43t0masand see what happens
13:10:46PuckNeo2. the second is out of the question cause they do about a 1,5 month to fix it and i really need it
13:11:05PuckNeoi had an jukebox recorder
13:11:07t0maswell... then I suggest 1 and if it fails 3
13:11:17PuckNeowhat prog
13:11:23PuckNeodo you know any?
13:11:25t0masdon't know one for linux...

13:11:40PuckNeodisc something

13:12:26PuckNeocause i will not have the data files
13:12:29PuckNeo:(
13:12:44t0mashmm? I guess it will create the files?

14:20:40HClgee. it seems as if windows mobile actually made people program properly again without code being bloated..
14:22:56t0maseh?
14:23:01t0masare we talking about microsoft?
14:23:13t0masor thirdparty software?

22:25:14amiconn?

22:44:32amiconn(to the Makefile in the build dir)
22:45:09*[IDC]Dragon gets a clue
22:45:49amiconnAll rockbox functions (both apps and librockbox) get split into individual sections, only the gcc lib does not (of course)

22:48:09amiconnI'm trying this just to find out whether there's significant dead code
22:48:36amiconnI tried disabling the debug functions I mentioned last time
22:48:43amiconn...with sup
22:48:53amiconn*surprisingly little effect
22:48:59[IDC]Dragon:-(
22:49:21amiconnThis saves about 2 KB on player, and 1 KB on recorder
22:49:33[IDC]Dragonbetter than nothing
22:53:24[IDC]Dragonnow I get all my sections, and it links OK
22:53:33[IDC]Dragonbut is not smaller :-(

22:55:00amiconnWould be interesting to know what the linker throws away
22:55:58[IDC]Dragonmaybe you can diff the map
22:56:10[IDC]Dragonwith and w/o −−gc-sections
22:56:43amiconnBtw, w/o −−gc-sections, it gets a tiny bit larger than without splitting into sections

23:02:16[IDC]Dragonlooking in more detail, bootbox gets ~10 KB smaller
23:02:33[IDC]Dragonlet's settle with that
23:02:40amiconnNow it's only 2KB
23:03:02amiconnIt needs to keep the vectors, which in turn seems to re-add some code
23:03:24[IDC]Dragonwhat's different now?
23:03:52amiconnExplicit KEEP(*(.vectors)); in app.lds
23:03:55SlasheriHmm, the function call: button = button_get_w_tmo(HZ/2); in debug_menu.c will crash iriver when playing sample.wav. Without that everything works fine
23:06:52[IDC]DragonI ment your 5KB vs. 2KB, which you said is the vectors
23:07:25[IDC]Dragonforget the last line
23:07:32amiconnWithout that explicit KEEP(), the linker garbage-collected the vectors away
23:07:51amiconn..which in turn lead to more code being eliminated
23:08:04amiconn(probably stuff that gets called by the vectors)
23:08:19amiconnBut without the vectors in place, rockbox won't work
23:08:33[IDC]Dragonsounds like definitely non-working

23:27:20*amiconn goes to check whether this build actually works
23:27:31[IDC]Dragongood idea :-)
23:27:57[IDC]Dragonbut in any case, an interesting experiment
23:28:29amiconnFor the menu_*() stuff, I knew thatt these are unused
23:28:43[IDC]DragonI guess this -Wl,−−gc-sections linker option doesn't hurt the normal build
23:28:58[IDC]Dragonsame for the .lds wildcards
23:29:12amiconnThat build is actully working...
23:29:20amiconn(quick test)
23:30:25amiconnHuh?????
23:30:39amiconnReally strange effect...
23:31:05amiconnCalling 'View HW info' from the debug menu lead to a CPUAdrEr
23:31:18amiconnHowever, the music is still playing (!!)
23:31:37[IDC]Dragonhaha
23:31:49amiconnYes, really
23:31:52[IDC]Dragonyou found the hidden DSP
23:32:12amiconnAh, reload doesn't work
23:32:32[IDC]Dragonso the IRQ was still alive
23:32:40amiconnYes
23:32:52[IDC]Dragonmust be, DMA is only 64 K

23:34:46[IDC]Dragonhow's the Gmini?
23:35:40Tangsomeone is continuing gminiport?
23:35:43Tangcool news
23:37:04TangJust an ask about minor EDIT of the two nooby section of iRiverport...
23:37:49Tangi was thinking that maybe a merge of the two pages should be better
23:38:51 Quit Sucka ("a bird in the bush is worth two in your house")
23:40:10Tangto be fair it would be easier for me to maintain the translation synced if the two version use same structure
23:40:58[IDC]Dragonamiconn: I got a diff now, it makes sense, remove a couple of disk write functions
23:43:21amiconnI found the cause for the CPUAdrErr
23:43:35amiconnIt has nothing to do with the garbage collection
23:43:42amiconnIt's an actual rockbox bug
23:43:58[IDC]Dragonnice catch
23:44:04amiconndebug_menu.c declares extern int ata_device;
23:44:18amiconnHowever, ata.c defines char ata_device;
23:44:22amiconn(!!)
23:44:30[IDC]Dragon?
23:44:40[IDC]Dragonah
23:44:43amiconnSo the debug code tries to access an int
23:44:51[IDC]Dragonwith byte align
23:44:55amiconn...while ata.c may happily put it at an odd address
23:45:13amiconnIt was pure luck that it worked so far...
23:45:33[IDC]Dragonyes
23:45:55amiconnNow the question which of the 2 places should be changed
23:46:44amiconnBtw, this shows why it is better to declare stuff in headers....
