#rockbox log for 2005-06-02

00:00:05Tangledingthe actual experimental audio support in Rbx isn't that suitable
00:00:13Tangledinglet's wait a little bit
00:00:51crwlluckily i have my sennheiser px100's which i've found to sound best with flat eq already :P
00:01:33preglowsuitable? pfaw, it's perfectly suitable, it plays my files, and with no gap too
00:02:16CoCoLUSi have a pair of ex71s... quite common i think
00:02:33CoCoLUSand they really need a little added bass :)
00:03:03Tangledingmmm personaly i'll wait for WPS and more stable support
00:03:08HCldoes mp3 gapless work yet?
00:03:18CoCoLUSit might be a -really- dumb question
00:03:22CoCoLUSbut what does wps stand for? :)
00:03:26ehntooI just got a pair of Koss KSC-55's... they're great, but the bass is too heavy.
00:03:31dwihnoCoCoLUS: while-playing-screen
00:03:40CoCoLUSknew that of course ;)
00:04:47thegeekthere really is no need for any eq
00:04:49thegeekjust get a cmoy
00:04:50preglowHCl: he's working on it
00:05:08preglowthere's no _need_, but it's nice to have, even though i never use it myself
00:05:15preglowsome music is just plain badly recorded
00:07:09CoCoLUSit's personal taste... for me, a dap without at least b/t control is useless
00:07:22preglowit has no use
00:07:35preglowi believe you're exagerating there, but point taken :P
00:07:37Dave99woohoo - 2 hours later (having eventually building gcc 3.4.4) and I have built my first rockbox.iriver :o)
00:07:47CtcpIgnored 1 channel CTCP requests in 0 seconds at the last flood
00:07:47*preglow applaudes like a madman
00:08:09TangledingVery impressive
00:08:15Dave99I wondered why I had never fancied unix before
00:08:18Dave99now I know why
00:08:24Tangleding(in fact i just get a compiled one from Chamois ;) )
00:08:47preglowDave99: cygwin is worse than unix
00:09:14Dave99now do I trust myself enough to acyually put it on my hp120?
00:09:41crwli did the same thing first time today and have no problems
00:09:53crwlthough I let my friend install the bootloader first on his unit, hehe
00:09:55Dave99cool, might give it a go in a bit
00:10:14TangledingHardly dangerous in fact
00:10:14ehntoospeaking of that
00:10:25Tangledingnot more than an iRiver fw upgrade
00:10:28ehntooI should really build my own version
00:10:36ehntoowith the sound patch, of course
00:10:57Tangleding(for the bootloader i think)
00:11:02Dave99I guess if something was really bad you can just boot into the iriver fw and delete/replace the rockbox
00:11:11ehntoono, you can't
00:11:23ehntooyeah, you can
00:11:29Tangledingif it sa daily build related issue yes
00:11:30ehntoobut if there were no build errors
00:11:40ehntooyou don't really have any dangers
00:11:48Tangledingbut if the ROM upgrade with bootloader HEX fail noway
00:11:50CoCoLUSas long as you didn't build the boot loader yourself... it's pretty safe
00:12:19Dave99oh I wouldnt mess with the bootloader myself - dont have the resucitation equipment!
00:12:42ehntooI think the only one with an IriverBDM is still LinusN
00:13:30Tangledingthink so too
00:14:00Tangledingbut anyone can make the merge between linusN bootloader and iRiver original hex with preglow fwpatcher ;)
00:14:06Tangledingwith no risk
00:14:54ehntoobut preglow hasn't updated it to recognize the 1.65 md5's yet
00:15:38Dave99it works with the 1.65 fw though
00:15:41amiconnIt worked for me, today...
00:15:51ehntoolast time I tried, it didn't
00:16:14preglowi don't get this
00:16:24amiconnThe MMC icon is a bit misplaced on the iriver...
00:16:28preglowuda lets you select if the treble range is to be 0-18db or 0-24db
00:16:32preglowwhat's the point?
00:16:47amiconnYou cant get it < 0 ?
00:16:57Tangledingmmm finaly lame is gapless too with actual patch?
00:17:01preglowbut ok
00:17:06preglowi'll hack in the limits and the uda call
00:17:56preglowwhat is super bass?
00:17:58preglowsome mas option?
00:18:03preglowi don't think uda does anything like it
00:18:05Tangledingi want to echo all this at HA place
00:18:13amiconnpreglow: yes
00:18:13preglowTangleding: please wait
00:18:20Tangledingmmm okay
00:18:36preglowTangleding: we'll have crude audio support in place soon, better wait until they can have something to play with
00:18:51amiconnThe MAS has loudness in addition to the usual treble+bass, and superbass shifts the center frequency for the loudness function
00:18:59Tangledingin fact HA is not MR or so
00:19:09amiconn...from 1 kHz to 2 kHz. This effectively boosts the bass
00:19:09preglowTangleding: no, and it doesn't really matter i guess
00:19:24Tangledingas you want
00:19:34preglowTangleding: it's just that people will want to try audio output, and the patch isn't that easy to apply right now
00:19:39preglowTangleding: so we get people asking for help all the time
00:19:46Tangledingokay i understand
00:19:57preglowTangleding: and it'll be very much easier once audio out is in cvs
00:20:00amiconnpreglow: MDB is another MAS only feature
00:20:23Tangledingin fact that was that i planned to post
00:20:32Tangledingokay i'll wait
00:20:42preglowwe should have some code in cvs fairly soon
00:20:45Tangledingi wish you aren't too annoyed by the fact
00:20:51preglowof course i'm not
00:20:53Tangledingthat at my french board
00:21:11Tangledingeveryone is informed of the recent audio progress
00:21:16amiconnpreglow: The MAS3507 (player) does have the basic controls only (volume, balance, treble, bass) plus stereo width
00:21:20preglowTangleding: no worries
00:22:03Tangleding(we were a lot iHP owner very interested in Rbx progress that's the point ;) )
00:22:39TangledingSo i gonna go
00:23:07preglowi wonder if there is a UDA define
00:23:16Tangledingjust feel free to inform HA guys from your own when you think it's okay
00:23:20Tangledinghere is the link
00:23:26preglowTangleding: you'll get your chance ;)
00:23:59Tangledingin fact i rather let more implicated person do this if there is
00:24:19preglowwe'll see
00:24:19Tangledingdon't know if there is Rbx members registered at HA place
00:24:40Tangledingif not no problem i or another guy should post the news
00:24:51preglowagain, we'll see
00:24:57preglowwhat happens happens
00:25:07preglowamiconn: you agree we should have a UDA1380 define?
00:25:20preglowamiconn: in case we get further ports using the UDA1380, but not the coldfire
00:25:32Tangledingso, so bye all guys
00:25:38preglowgood bye
00:25:43Tangledingdon't forget to sleep ;)

00:29:17preglowamiconn: why is the super bass option present for the mas3507 config if it can't use it?
00:29:19amiconnpreglow: I agree that there should be an UDA define
00:30:01amiconnThere is no super bass option on the player
00:30:28preglowlooks like its included in the settings to me
00:30:48preglowno, i'm just looking at the source :P
00:30:50preglowmight easily be mistaken
00:31:30amiconnThe global_settings structure contains many settings that aren't used on all units
00:31:38preglowahh, ok
00:31:53preglowi'm just looking at the maxval, etc, structs
00:31:55preglowin sound.c
00:31:57amiconnThe was some talk about this way back in time, even before I joined rockbox
00:33:15amiconnAh, yes, the arrays in sound.c are also unconditional
00:33:19 Join DangerousDan [0] (
00:33:31preglowthere's space to be saved, for sure
00:33:36preglowa teeny bit, at least
00:34:27amiconnIt seems this is because the #defines in sound.h telling which number is which settings are also fixed
00:34:31preglowbut yeah, what should this define look like? #define CONFIG_CODEC UDA1380, perhaps?
00:34:47preglowusing codec for that is a bit misleading, though
00:35:02preglowbut i can't think of anything more suitable
00:35:25amiconnYou could start with HAVE_UDA1380
00:35:38amiconn(similar to HAVE_DAC3550 on the player)
00:35:58amiconnThe MAS3507 doesn't have an integrated dac, so there is the 3550
00:36:13preglowi will define that for both sims and target
00:37:09preglowwell, so the eq-limits are the same for target and sim, for isntance
00:37:12preglowi wouldn't expect them to differ
00:37:52amiconnBtw, the sound.[ch] range arrays could use the method I used in the viewer plugin: making the setting types an enum (using #ifdefs), and then using designated initializers in sound.c
00:38:17preglowyeah, that's a good idea
00:40:00amiconnThe iriver firmware is able to initialise the remote lcd on the fly
00:40:15amiconn...something that rockbox still has to learn
00:40:18preglownot too hard, i'd guess
00:40:26preglowremote support is pretty recent
00:40:38preglowmax limit for treble is 6 db, for bass it's 24 db
00:40:40amiconnWe need a way to detect a plugged remote, and some thread to handle it
00:40:47preglowsomeone's worrying over people busting their ears
00:41:04amiconnOnly 6 dB max. treble? :(
00:41:45preglowbut i should only define HAVE_UDA1380 for target?
00:42:14preglowi guess it really doesn't matter much, the eq won't work for sims anyway
00:44:13preglowSlasheri: awake?

01:10:19webguest77Hi guys, why do I get an error while trying to patch the iriver firmware with firmwarepatcher.exe using wine?
01:10:54webguest77Error said, Couldn't modify existing file. Check if file is write-protected, then try again.
01:11:04webguest77I did check it, it was world writeable
01:11:24preglowi have no idea
01:11:27preglowi've never used it in wine
01:11:33*preglow produlates hcl
01:11:48webguest77hmm, maybe I'm missing something
01:11:50preglowahh, no, it was rasher who said that worked
01:12:02preglowwebguest77: it uses a temp dir
01:12:08*HCl dies from his injuries preglow inflicted
01:12:09preglowwebguest77: that might not be world writeable
01:12:19preglowHCl: the produlator isn't _that_ bad, now is it?
01:12:20webguest77preglow, I see :)
01:12:23HCl :P
01:12:27webguest77sudo would make it work, I guess
01:12:54preglowwebguest77: i don't know what that temp dir is in wine, in windows it's the temp dir that lies within each user's home directory
01:13:00preglowwebguest77: a sudo should most definitely do it

01:17:21webguest77I guess I'll patch by hand then
01:17:27preglowoh well, i can't think of any way of finding out what's wrong apart from giving you a debug version of fwpatcher

08:08:48LinusNman, ogg's buffer handling is really perverse
08:12:17amiconnLinusN: Is it a big hassle to hook up the logic analyser to the recorder and record the recording timing behaviour?
08:13:12zeamiconn: thats a lot of 'record'
08:25:07amiconnLinusN: I'm not talking about current cvs. I optimised my new transfer routine a bit more. It should decrease recording interrupt rate (number of accepted interrupts) from 1 per 30 bytes to ~1 per frame
08:26:01amiconnI also found that the interrupt is more reliable _for recording_ when set to level sensitive

09:00:07bill2or3I'm really liking the iriver H10 atm
09:00:27Bagerbill2or3 rockbox port on it is not even planned...
09:00:54bill2or3yeah, I know.
09:01:06bill2or3but the touch-controller is nice
09:01:18bill2or3although I'd really like somthing w/ rockbox
09:03:47crwlthose iAudio things are nice, too
09:03:49bill2or3how usefull is the little lcd remote?
09:03:56Bagerbill2or3 very :)
09:04:05bill2or3the remotes are cheap on ebay too
09:04:33Bagerbut you have to know that H3x0 doesn't come with LCD remote ... but the H1x0's one works perfectly & also there is H3x0 LCD one as accessory
09:04:51Bagerthe last is sold mainly in korea ...
09:04:58bill2or3how stable is the rockbox 120 port?
09:05:05Bagerbut some koreans are very helpful
09:06:20bill2or3if only the 340 had the touch controller this decision would be easy
09:06:47bill2or3are the 1x0 and 3x0 on similar hardware, to make porting easy?
09:12:31Bagerpretty similar

09:19:47*bill2or3 looks
09:19:49bill2or3thanks bager
09:20:03bill2or3the 340 looks good, but it's pretty expensive.
09:20:10bill2or3I'll sleep on it.
09:20:58Bagerbill2or3 atm 140 is more expensive (i think), it's out of production for nearly a year (afaik)
09:21:20bill2or3usbot lets you transfer files striaight from your camera, right?
09:21:28LinusNSlasheri: if you use a ring buffer with a read and a write pointer, you can have a lock-free buffer even with a preemptive kernel
09:21:30bill2or3there's a 140 on ebay for like $280..
09:21:36BagerLinusN have you had a look at H3x0's components? In particular, do you have any idea where's the RTC located ? just curious
09:21:52bill2or3or maybe it's a 120
09:22:01LinusNBagder: i assume the rtc is in the real-time power management chip
09:22:08LinusNbager, sorry
09:22:14BagerLinusN np;)
09:22:43Bageryou mean Philips PCF50606 ?
09:23:23Bagerthere's no info about it on the philips site...
09:23:32Bagerdatasheet i mean
09:24:31BagerOptional 32-kHz Xtal oscillator output for generating real-time clock
09:26:03SlasheriLinusN: Aah :) Anyway, i will change that buffer to ring buffer soon
09:26:44LinusNagain, look at mpeg.c
09:26:52SlasheriLinusN: And now it's possible to reload a new song to codec on the fly without reloading the codec
09:27:06LinusNcare to share?

10:51:07SlasheriHowever, you should restart rockbox everytime you press the stop button. And after started playing, you have to adjust the volum
10:51:14SlasheriBut then it should work
10:51:17Chamoisi know that
10:51:32Chamoisbut sometimes i have no sound when i restart rockbox
10:51:34soxSlasheri: are you working on what is gonna be the sound api or are there parallell dev on this right now?

10:55:09LinusNi think it's great
10:55:18LinusNbut it needs some work
10:55:30soxdoes that mean that it might be the sound api?
10:55:40LinusNi've been wanting to commit it for some time, but something always comes in the way
10:55:50soxyour sound api?
10:56:17soxhow far does it reach, beyond 15 secs? ;-)
10:57:53ChamoisSlasheri : i know some people who have the same problem
10:58:03Chamoisso it is a little problem in rockbox
10:58:19SlasheriChamois: Hmm, yes.. It might be the uda initialization problem
11:01:03XavierGrcould someone tell me please how to conclude sh-elf-gcc when i type make to compile rockbox?

11:12:42XavierGrso I cant really compile rockbox if I have made some changes?
11:14:15Bagertwiki spam
11:15:57XavierGrSpeaking of it I have made some changes in calculator.c for the iriver, to fit the screen better....
11:16:26preglowmy god, how i love wiki spammers
11:16:37preglowshoot to kill
11:16:54XavierGrdo you think that i must make the changes as a different plug-in for iriver, or the code must see if is archos or iriver?
11:17:30rasherthe way it's been done for the other plugins is to use the LCD_WIDTH and LCD_HEIGHT defines
11:18:02***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
11:19:04Bageri hope i cleared it correctly ...
11:19:08XavierGryes but do I need to write code that will automatically adjust the size or the screen (archos, iriver) or make a different .c file of the plug-in
11:19:36XavierGrI see that this kind of automation is done when buttons are configured.
11:20:51rasherOnly one .c file
11:29:29XavierGraslo I would like to clear something about lcd_setfont() function. Some plugins call it with the FONT_SYSFIXED argument and when I change it to an integer value nothing really changes. What FONT_SYSFIXED means?
11:31:26LinusNit's the system fixed width font
11:31:49bobTHCit's to force the use of the fixed size font, imho
11:32:17LinusNyou can choose between FONT_SYSFIXED and FONT_UI
11:32:51LinusNFONT_UI is the font selected by the user

11:44:12XavierGrbobTHC:yes you are right indeed. But what if I want to define another font size for the plug-in?
11:44:41 Quit oxygen77 ("CGI:IRC")
11:44:46amiconnXavierGr: You can't
11:45:34amiconnlcd_setfont() never defines sizes, it merely selects fonts (which can have any size in case of the user-selectable font)
11:45:37XavierGrI fixed claculator.c to extend all the way into the iriver screen but it would be nice to have a larger font!
11:45:47oddwhat about parts of the interface where it pays to have a larger font, like when displaying the time signature when playing
11:46:27amiconnImho the default font should be a little larger on iriver, but maybe that's just me
11:46:39HClmaybe we could enlarge the font with an option?
11:46:41oddi could design a new font
11:46:46XavierGramiconn:so lcd_setfont() can only take 2 values?
11:47:06amiconnXavierGr: yup
11:47:15oddi'm dying to contribute to this project, but i don't code :(
11:47:37amiconnodd: The current sysfont is 6x8. I'd vote for an 8x10 or 8x11 font
11:48:04oddwhere can i get image tiles of the current fonts available on iriver?
11:48:20bobTHCbut be aware XavierGr, i don't think u can mix fonts for the moment...
11:48:34XavierGrodd: I dont know very much of programing too, but this is a great experiance for me to get better and contribute too...
11:48:34crwlare pixels on archos devices much larger than on the iriver lcd?
11:48:45crwli find the default font definitely too small on iriver
11:49:05rasherodd: but it's a bit outdated I think
11:49:17oddthanks though
11:49:24oddi'll see what i can do
11:49:26rasherthink it has most of them though
11:49:39amiconncrash_: Yes, the pixels on archos are significantly larger
11:50:01Bagerwhy's this: Any BDF font file up to 16 pixels high should be usable with Rockbox.
11:50:02rasheramiconn: do you know how these images were created?
11:50:06amiconnThe archos lcd has the same vertical resolution as the iriver remote lcd, but almost twice the height...
11:50:37amiconnBah, this was directed to crwl
11:51:23amiconnrasher: tools/bdf2bmp.c
11:51:34XavierGrbut why not use the lcd_setfont to take already installed fonts as an argument?
11:51:59bobTHCthe function miss that"s all

11:53:58Bagerwin_croxXY.bdf are M$-CP1251, aren't they ?
11:55:33amiconnBager: The 16 pixel height limit comes from 2 facts. (1) Old lcd_bitmap() couldn't handle higher bitmaps, but that was fixed long ago.
11:57:05Bageryes ?
11:57:07amiconn(2) The font buffer size is limited
11:57:30amiconnThis limit should probably increased for iriver

12:06:44XavierGrdoes the #ifdef statement has to be outside functions?
12:07:10XavierGrok fine

12:11:09Bageryes, i made a mistake
12:11:22Bagerdon't use these defines
12:11:31XavierGrso if i type the #if about the keypad the good code will run anyway for the right target
12:11:39rasherDon't do that
12:11:44rasheruse the screen size
12:12:01Bagerit's the correct logical compare
12:12:04rasherobvious case: when the h300 port happens
12:12:16Bageryes :)
12:12:18rasherwe'd have to change the defines to match the h300 as well
12:12:35rasherwith this, it'll just see that it's the same (or larger) lcd size

12:14:06rasherthat will hold true for any lcd size
12:14:25rasherand the height as, say, LCD_HEIGHT/8
12:14:29rasheror what have you

12:20:10rasherbut yes, obviously some are easier than others
12:20:31XavierGralso I modiefied snake2 a little
12:20:58XavierGryou can change 2 values and there it goes full screen. The problem is the levels.
12:21:24XavierGrBecause when you enlarge the screen size the levels stay the same
12:21:50rasherThat's not the right solution in my opinion
12:22:12rasherThe better way would be to use the same levels, but draw them with larger graphics
12:22:53XavierGryes that the best way, but the coder nust dive into the draw routines of the levels...
12:23:24rasherYes, it'll take a fair bit of work
12:24:14XavierGrI dont know much about coding but it must be a little more difficult to read code rather than right...

12:31:52XavierGrwait a sec do you mean that the remote is working fully with rockbox as it concerns basic graphics and buttons?
12:31:58Bageryes :)
12:32:19Bagerbut most of the plugins and rockbox itself don't use it
12:32:39XavierGrbecause when I test rockbox on my iHP the remote LCD shows only the logo. Nothing button presses or menus.
12:32:43rasherAre the buttons available yet?
12:32:53Bagerrasher afaik
12:32:59rasherI know the driver's working, but are there defines for them?
12:33:30rasherXavierGr: try the logo plugin
12:33:45XavierGrrasher: That's what I know too. The driver is working but there are no defines so the remote doesnt do a thing

12:35:05rasherah, so it is
12:35:06Bagersorry for the flood
12:35:53Bageras far as i can see there is no way to distinguish whether the button pressed is on the remote or on the unit
12:36:06rashersure there is
12:36:15rasherBUTTON_RC_STOP vs. BUTTON_OFF
12:36:37Bageroh, yes
12:36:47XavierGr*whistle* it is snowing around here! :)
12:36:51Bagerheh ... i read RC as 'ReCorder"...
12:37:16Bagerso it's fully functional
12:37:36rasherSomeone asked a while ago how iRiver detected thepresence of the remote.. quite simple - ADC_REMOTE is 0 when it isn't plugged in, and FF (or a button-press) when it's plugged in
12:37:37Slasheripreglow: yes, you should add the files before you compile
12:37:42XavierGrwell whenever I press a button on the remote only the backlight is on nothing else
12:37:51Slasherior if you don't, make will fail
12:38:00rasherXavierGr: As said, no plugins, nor rockbox use the remote buttons yet
12:38:16XavierGryes as I thought...
12:38:50Bagerbtw what's that BUTTON_RC_BITRATE
12:39:04rasherjust another button
12:39:23rasherlabeled "Bitrate"
12:39:29Bageron the remote ???
12:39:52Bagerthere's button labeled "bitrate" on the H1x0's remote control ???
12:40:00Slasheriyes there is :D
12:40:02rasherIt has more buttons than the main unit in fact
12:40:06Bagerwtf ??
12:40:06niobosjep, on the top, sliding to the right
12:40:10crwlis there?
12:40:13Bagerrasher same with h3x0's LDC remote
12:40:18crwlthere is :)
12:40:26Bagerbut there is no such button
12:40:42Bagerrasher what's its function with original firmware
12:40:48crwlright on the third jog wheel
12:41:10niobosit can be used as a "directory forward"
12:41:17crwlhm, does that button do anything else on the original firmware except in recording mode?
12:41:18niobosbut also to change the bitrate in the recording-thing
12:41:20rasherBager: I'm guessing it changes bitrate of recordings, but I don't really know
12:41:49crwli haven't used my remote much at all, only few times when biking more than few minutes
12:42:22rasherI use mine almost exclusively
12:42:39Bagerthe H3x0's one has [+,-,<,>, press] - joystick , [mode, stop (as press), a-b]- bottom & [prev 10, play/pause as press, next 10] - top

13:01:19BagerXavierGr i mean to set REC_WIDTH based on LCD_WIDTH and REC_HEIGHT based on LCD_HEIGHT
13:01:32BagderI think you should use >= and not ==
13:01:49Bagdersoon there will be a h3x0 lcd as well
13:01:52Bageror maybe REC_WIDTH LCD_WIDTH/10

14:28:40ashridahi don't think anyone's has failed completely, but we've had some problems.
14:28:42crwlif it does, then i'd say you don't have much to worry :P
14:29:02nioboswhat's the worst thing that can happen (with correct MD5)?
14:29:09ashridahfor example, up until recently, 1.65 and rockbox caused ogg vorbis playback to break
14:29:32niobosbut I guess, just reflashing with official firmware solved that?
14:30:03ashridahyes, but it just highlights how undertested the system is.
14:30:17ashridahunless you're a developer, rockbox doesn't have too much value yet anyway
14:30:21niobosit's just: rockbox seems so damn wonderfull and I'd realy like to have it, I just don't want to waste my player

14:30:40niobosI'm not a "developer", but I might become one...
14:30:47preglowplease do
14:31:11ashridahniobos: you can play with the interface using the simulator, but i'm not sure if prebuilt versions of that exist
14:31:30niobosI'll try that first
14:31:32ashridahbut yeah, if you've got experience with development in embedded environments, every hand helps.
14:31:55nioboswell, I don't... i did some programming projects for school, but it was Winblows-stuff
14:32:10niobosBut I DO know C(++), so I might be of some help
14:32:25niobosbut maybe you already have tons of "not-so-good-C++-programmers"
14:32:25preglowrockbox coding is simpler than windows coding
14:32:36ashridahniobos: okay, well, embedded development tends to be highly hardware-centric, that said, rockbox's plugins are typically fairly well shielded from that
14:32:44preglowwe can't get enough "not-so-good-c++-programmers"
14:32:56niobosthen I might be of some help...
14:32:58ashridahand since most of them work on the simulator, one can test them out, and look through their code well before one risks things on the player.
14:33:00preglowjust code whatever rockbox stuff you want, and if you get good at it, we can use you ;)

14:34:48ashridahthat said, i'm not sure how difficult building a development environment is on windows. it involves using cygwin, so if you're not familiar with basic unix concepts, that might take some getting used to for you

14:43:43preglowwell, they're no trouble
14:43:45preglowjust type make
14:43:58preglowthe only one insane enough to actually hack the makefiles, is bagder
14:44:15niobosOk, I'll note down his name ;-)
14:44:26ashridahi think autoconf and automake just kinda spawned out of the chaos that ensued after someone married sendmail and m4 macros
14:45:05preglowa bastard marriage!
14:45:21preglowmankind will pay dearly for it in the centuries to come
14:45:40ashridahniobos: hand-written makefiles (or in our case, slightly hand-generated makefiles), aren't usually that hard to follow. just a couple of environment settings, and targets that reference either other targets, or other files, which tells make what to rebuild if a file gets modified.
14:45:47ashridahpreglow: the sad part is that distros STILL ship sendmail
14:45:56preglowashridah: it enrages and confuses me still
14:45:57ashridahi was flabberghasted when i noticed that fedora core 3 has it
14:46:11ashridahat least debian saw the light and started using exim long ago
14:46:15*ashridah huggles exim
14:46:21niobosGentoo (=my distro) has it too, but encourages users to use postfix
14:46:33preglowi'm on qmail at the moment
14:46:34*ashridah flees
14:46:34*ashridah flees faster
14:46:42preglowbut that's just because i'm too lazy to switch
14:46:45nioboswhat's wrong with gentoo?
14:46:48preglowand don't want to loose any mail
14:46:52preglowhey, i use gentoo too
14:46:54*ashridah breaks the speed of light barrier, and finds out that the universe just wraps and runs into himself
14:47:11ashridahpreglow: if you're lazy, how on earth did you get qmail ON in the first place?
14:47:19preglowit's incredibly simple
14:47:22niobosashridah get's into trouble with Einstein's relativity for braking the light speed...
14:47:22preglowand it's easy to maintain
14:47:59ashridahniobos: i believe we covered running into myself
14:48:05*preglow puts the light speed back on its feet and shoves it on its way
14:48:37rasherincredible.. my commits didn't break anything
14:48:41ashridahpreglow: that's because it hasn't changed. anything that requires as many patches as qmail does to be useful outside of its increasingly small niche isn't "simple" by any standard definition
14:49:00*ashridah hands rasher the cookie of success
14:49:02preglowi agree it should be abandoned
14:49:23preglowbut i'm moving in a months time, and want the box to be stable until then
14:49:35*ashridah resumes huggling exim
14:49:48 Join jochen [0] (
14:50:00ashridahif i could, i'd marry it, and have a whole litter of half-human half-mta hybrids
14:50:01preglowi also didn't get postfix working that fateful five years ago, when i set it up
14:50:15ashridahmeh, postfix's too sendmail like
14:50:46*niobos chose postfix because I had a book around about it...
14:51:08jochenhas any one made slasheris latest patch work?
14:51:08*ashridah chose exim because the book for it is free
14:51:26ashridahand the FAQ covers every esoteric setup one could possibly imagine, on every esoteric platform one can imagine
14:51:35niobosok, I surrender
14:51:44rasherexim (in its default Debian config, which is all I care to use) insisted on delievering all mail at the same time when I had had the server turned off for a while.. completely killed my poor server
14:51:50preglowashridah: the fact that dj bernstein is a pompous asshole does of course not make me want to continue using whatever he chooses to write then abandon
14:51:59rasherpostfix however seemed a bit more gentle in that respect
14:52:13ashridahso it's not "search google for how to do XYZ with postfix" it's "search the faq and only the faq to do XYZ with exim" for all values of XYZ that's even remotely related to MTA's
14:52:25rasher(again, in its default Debian config.. if it's not configured through debconf, it might as well not be configurable to me)
14:52:31ashridahpreglow: heh, he didn't abandon it. he thinks it's finished.
14:52:34ashridahlike a work of art
14:52:48preglowashridah: is that why he claims to be working on qmail 2?
14:52:51ashridahnot his fault it's chiseled on stone
14:53:10ashridahgood lord, he is?
14:53:10*ashridah shudders
14:53:15rasherClaiming something is finished is about 800 times worse than abandoning it
14:53:18preglowashridah: not bloody including ipv6 patches in the official tarball counts as bloody abandoning it
14:53:37jochenhmm, bit offtopic, huh? *lol*
14:53:41*niobos goes back to studying... How (not) to get electrocuted...
14:53:57ashridahrasher: eh? exim's never done that in the default config here
14:54:00preglowi need offtopic rants so i wont have to go back to report writing
14:54:20ashridahrasher: infact, if it receives more than 10 in a short period, it delays delivery until the queue runner has time to start
14:54:25jochenso nobody tried today's patch yet?
14:54:36ashridahso it can deal with everything that's incoming.
14:55:04rasherashridah: I don't know.. I just ended up with an unholy amount of exim proccesses after running fetchmail
14:55:19ashridahrasher: that's really odd.
14:55:30rasherWhether it's Debian's or exim's fault, I don't know
14:55:54HClanything new
14:56:08rasherand since all I use it for is local delivery, replacing it with postfix is really a non-issue
14:56:14ashridahwell, i do know exim typically is setup to defer delivery until it's finished receiving if it receives a large batch
14:56:20ashridahit'll deliver typically about 10
14:56:56*rasher gently nudges the conversation back on topic
14:57:02jochenyeah *gg*
14:57:26MoosCamaroHCl: Slasheri had a begin of WPS

14:58:13jochenHCl, and he released a new patch today, but i can't make it work
14:58:43rasherjochen: you need to get all the files and put them in the right places

20:39:04amiconnrasher: The irc stats are in need of an update, I'd say
20:43:18bipakwhich gcc should i use
20:43:47crwli used gcc 3.4.4 (as the m68k compiler)
20:43:48bipakits currently 3.2.2 installed on my machine, but without m68k support
20:44:04crwlcompiled that with some 3.4.5 prerelease that happened to be on my ubuntu system
20:44:21preglowsomeone should see about fixing all those 4.0 bugs :P
20:48:01amiconnFrom my experiments with different gcc versions and -O settings, I'd recommend against using gcc 4.0.0. Imho we should wait for 4.0.1 or 4.0.2 before even thinking about a switch
20:49:34preglowwhy, did you actually make rockbox compile with gcc4?
20:49:59amiconnOf course someone could try and go ahead, and then report a bucketful of bugs to the gcc team
20:50:45preglowthey do tend to not get fixed by themselves, no
20:50:48amiconnpreglow: I didn't try gcc4 for m68k yet. For sh1 it's impossible without a substantial rewrite of system.c
20:51:00amiconn...which I am not going to do
20:51:17preglowand the m68k port depends on me rewriting synth_full in libmad :P
20:51:25amiconnI should file a bug report for that. They call it a feature, but it is a bug imho
20:51:46preglowwell, is there any reason for keeping the behaviour they've got now?
20:51:52pregloware there any good sides to it?
20:53:21amiconnThey say that it's a protection against programmer errors, because unresolved aliases aren't caught by all assemblers
20:53:30amiconnThe gnu asm catches them anyway
20:53:36preglowmoot point, if you ask me
20:53:42preglowthey almost require you to use gas anyway
20:54:07Zagoryeah, i wonder how many people use gcc with a 3rd-party assembler
20:54:15amiconn New Languages and Language specific improvements, C family
20:54:35amiconnBah, I got it wrong
20:54:49amiconngas does _not_ catch this on all platforms

21:25:47XavierGrhow can I have upadated 2 sims without having to configure again using ../tools/configure? Currently I want to test my code in both archos and iriver but whenever I type "make" for one the other needs configuration again...
21:26:12LinusNhave two build dirs
21:26:48XavierGrhmm... yes that seems to be right, thanks ;)
21:26:49LinusNi have one build dir for every platform
21:27:18XavierGryou mean rockbox build not sim build right?
21:27:29LinusNSlasheri: how are things?
21:27:43LinusNsim build is a rockbox build
21:27:53crwli think he got the start/stop bug fixed and wps working with mp3 files
21:27:57crwland we're all waiting for a patch ;)
21:28:14LinusNcrwl: this is not good
21:28:56SlasheriLinusN: I made the track_info structure to a "ring structure" and keeped file buffer as it was. Now wps is working partially for mp3s and play/stop works too :)
21:29:08LinusNthe patch is getting larger, and harder and harder to apply
21:29:52amiconngcc is braindead sometimes :/
21:30:00SlasheriI haven't implemented yet everything such as elapsed time (working now on it), and fast forward etc. features
21:30:16XavierGrLinusN: Well I have a folder called rockbox and inside it I have 2 folders for the sim builds. The "configure" is into "rockbox/tools" where my build are "rockbox/build-i" and "rockbox/build-a" do I need a second rockbox folder, as rockbox-i and rockbox-a?
21:30:38amiconnIt seems that I should go ahead and re-implement my new recording transfer in asm...
21:30:49LinusNamiconn: shoot
21:30:50*amiconn sighs
21:31:35LinusNXavierGr: you gave "rockbox", where apps/ and firmware/ are, right?=
21:31:42LinusNand tools/ etc
21:32:35LinusNthere you should have one dir for each build you want
21:33:01LinusNi have iriver-target, iriver-sim, archos-rec-target, archos-rec-sim etc

21:34:09amiconnI'm using a 2-level build dir structure
21:34:21HCli'm wanting to rewrite it, who has objections against that?
21:34:22SlasheriLinusN: I think i could give a quite stable patch tomorrow which could be applied if there are nothing serious
21:34:37preglowi think it should be applied very soon
21:34:52LinusNSlasheri: fair enough
21:34:57amiconnbuild/recorder, build/h100 etc. for targets, simulator-build/recorder etc for sims
21:35:07HClanyone? o.o
21:35:10preglowultra-big commits are never good
21:35:25HClwhat if i said i wanted to do it in java? o.o
21:35:37preglowHCl: i'd say "hell no" or "hahahah, good joke"
21:35:51preglowi don't even HAVE java
21:35:52amiconnLinusN: I tried to optimise the transfer loop in C, by using 'register' etc.
21:36:04HClits either java or c++, and i don't quite know c++
21:36:12preglowand for those who don't have it, a perl exe is a lot more practical than a full blown java distro
21:36:12HClpreglow: sure? it comes default with windows installs, i think.
21:36:14amiconnGcc still insists on (unnecessary) reloading from memory within the loop
21:36:25HClwell, i can make it in c++
21:36:26HCleither way
21:36:30HCli am *not* gonna do it without OO
21:36:33preglowHCl: why not perl?
21:36:39HClcause then you get stuff like the current
21:36:43HClwhich is completely unmaintainable
21:36:44HCl :P
21:37:01HCland i can do it pretty easily in OO
21:37:04amiconnHCl: Java does _not_ come default with windows
21:37:07preglowbut if you're going to make a songdb replacement, you really should use c, so the code can be stuffed in rockbox
21:37:10HClamiconn: it doesn't?

21:37:46HCli never installed it myself
21:37:48preglowthat's to hcl
21:37:53LinusNXavierGr: lose the { and }
21:37:56HClwell, you'd only need the runtime environment
21:38:04preglowHCl: besides, what you're talking about it msjvm, which is shit
21:38:08amiconnIt used to... but microsoft was forced to take it out in order to avoid a lawsuit
21:38:20HCli can do it in c++, but i don't know c++, nor its default classes
21:38:29HCland its much easier for me to do it in java
21:38:31preglowit has very few
21:38:34LinusNHCl: what's wrong with perl?
21:38:45amiconnHCl: If you do a clean install of WinXP (SP1+ iirc), you don't have a jvm
21:38:48HClLinusN: i don't really know perl, let alone perl OO
21:38:57HCland i *need* oo for this
21:39:11HCland java already has all the sort algorhythms..
21:39:12preglowbut yeah, java will require everyone who wants to rebuild the db to install a great frigging java environment
21:39:12LinusNso then you reimplement it in another language?
21:39:13amiconnAnayway, I'm also for sticking with perl
21:39:28preglowwhich is my biggest gripe
21:39:36HClLinusN: i'm not gonna be able to write a proper in perl
21:39:40preglowplus i also don't like java :P
21:39:45LinusNHCl: then the next guy who doesn't know java reimplements it in python
21:39:58HClwould you prefer c++
21:40:05LinusNno, i prefer perl
21:40:07HCli could do it in c++, but it'd be slower, most likely.
21:40:10HCli can't do perl.
21:40:20preglowlearning to do perl would do you good
21:40:21LinusNc++ is my last choice
21:40:25preglowand make you a better human being
21:41:00HClcan perl5 even do OO ?
21:41:04preglowof course
21:41:06HClit wouldn't run without default classes anyways
21:41:10HClcause i need sorting classes
21:41:13LinusNany language can do oo
21:41:17preglowperl does sort
21:41:33preglowjust not in a class
21:41:35HCli don't like perl.
21:41:44preglowthen there is something wrong with you
21:41:46HClmaybe i should just write it for java just for myself :/
21:42:31LinusNHCl: write it in the language you feel comfortable with
21:42:42HClthats without a doubt java :/
21:42:54HClbut i'll take a look at perl oo first..
21:43:13preglowbut bear in mind perl has no bundled oo classes
21:43:18crwlpython :P
21:43:18HClyea. i am..
21:43:20preglowthat is, you probably can't assume they're isntalled
21:43:35HCli'd also need a tag reading lib for java anyways
21:43:37preglowcrwl: python is the worst piece of shite i have ever had the "pleasure" of dealing with
21:43:45LinusNfunny, i have written so many programs without requiring oo...
21:44:08LinusNi guess i'm old
21:44:21preglowi know of old people that do oo
21:44:37preglowi like oo for big things
21:44:49HCli like oo for stuff that works with objects..
21:44:53HCllike databases.
21:45:11LinusNto be honest, i have written lots of oo programs
21:45:39LinusNbut never in a special oo language
21:45:59HCli've programmed in c for 6 years till i got to university
21:46:09LinusNthe program structure tends to be oo anyway
21:46:10HClwhere we were forced to do OO :p and once you get the hang of it

22:03:18LinusNtoday or tomorrow doesn't matter
22:03:41LinusNyou didn't rewrite the file buffer stiff?
22:04:15LinusNi noticed the vorbis codec uses the vorbisfile api
22:04:26LinusNlots of memory copying
22:04:37SlasheriLinusN: as i said i changed the track_info structure to a "ring structure". But i found that it's not necessary a good thing to make the file buffer itself a ring buffer
22:04:37LinusNvorbis is dynamic memory hell

22:05:38crwlwhat about tremor-lowmem branch
22:05:43LinusNSlasheri: yes, i mean the file buffer

22:07:02LinusNmarkun: you asked why we didn't use dma for disk operations?
22:07:04preglowthomj@glow Tremor $ grep _ogg_malloc *|wc -l
22:07:09preglownow this IS surprising
22:07:15Slasheriok, it works same way as before: when the buffer reaches near empty state, we will move all reaminig data to beginning of the buffer. This way all data readed by codecs are contiguous and no problems are caused about flipping the data in the other end of the buffer
22:07:26markunI would like to make 'center-scrolling' default behaviour in rockbox. Any objections if I commit it?
22:07:32markunLinusN: I was wrong :)
22:07:40SlasheriLinusN: i think this is a good idea
22:08:03LinusNi don't like the center scrolling as it currently is
22:08:04SlasheriThe ring buffer would need some memory copying when we have to reset index pointers to zero
22:08:17markunWhat would you like to see different?

22:08:39LinusNmarkun: i want a margin instead
22:09:01LinusNthere is so little visual feedback when the cursor is fixed in the center
22:09:08SlasheriLinusN: and the same amount of copying can be done during buffer refilling, when it's much more easier (and faster) to do.. :)
22:09:38LinusNyou mean using a 2kbyte watermark?
22:09:39markunWhat kind of feedback?
22:09:54LinusNmarkun: like the cursor moving when i use the joystick
22:10:21Slasheriah, not really.. but do you think it's a bad idea not to have a ring buffer?
22:10:34LinusNi'd like it to move and then start scrolling when the cursor is, let's say, 2 lines from the edge
22:11:02markunYes, I guessed you meant that by margin.
22:11:12LinusNif you have the buffer like it is today, you will instead have problems with tha data moving around
22:11:17Slasherii think the amount of copying needed is so small that it wont affect performance much
22:11:23amiconnWe can't use a fixed margin... maybe there are less than (2 * margin + 1) lines
22:11:28LinusNand then you need locking, which is a bad thing imho
22:11:51LinusNamiconn: i know that
22:12:01HClah. great.
22:12:07*HCl pets java and found what he needed.
22:12:27SlasheriLinusN: I will think the ring buffer again.. :)
22:12:56markunHCl: What do you think about center-scrolling as it is now?
22:13:02LinusNbtw, performance is important, since the ui will be affected by lengthy operations
22:13:32HClmarkun: mmm, i vote for a setting?
22:13:38LinusNso we need to yield often, for the wps scrolling to look nice, for example
22:13:39HClto how many lines of margin
22:13:42HCla user wants
22:13:56LinusNi think we can do without a setting
22:13:57preglowi think a sensible default should be enough there, really
22:14:14markunpreglow: Did you try it out?
22:14:24amiconnYes, and the default needs to be calculated from the line count
22:14:34preglowmarkun: no
22:14:42LinusNamiconn: i think the margin should be calculated
22:14:43SlasheriLinusN: yes, i understand.. I will implement the ring buffer but i don't promise it will be stable tomorrow :)

22:18:31preglowyes, i'm quite the eager beaver

22:18:48ehntooI missed it again?
22:18:51jochenthe same procedure as last day...
22:18:51Slasheribut i hope someone more familiar with wps will add the ogg/other format stuff to it

22:24:02XavierGrWhat exactly IRIVER_H100 does? I thought that it takes the value one if the target running is iriver.
22:24:49markunLinusN: It works very nice with at 2/3
22:25:07markunWould anyone like to try it before I commit?
22:25:15LinusNnow try the archos player sim
22:26:57markunThe makefile got fucked, maybe because I'm using BSD?
22:27:02XavierGrokey done the calculator plug-in is now ported for the iriver. (not a big deal though)
22:27:19LinusNmarkun: "got fucked"?
22:27:31XavierGrwhat do I do know to see this little fix commited?
22:27:35LinusNXavierGr: can i see the code?
22:27:37jochendon't ask LinusN *gg*
22:27:37markunThis is all it contains: install:
22:27:37markun @echo "installing a full setup in your archos dir"
22:27:37markun @(make zip && cd archos && unzip -oq ../
22:27:56LinusNmarkun: wow
22:28:09XavierGryeap its a single calculator.c file
22:28:22LinusNXavierGr: put it up somewhere for download
22:28:27LinusNor email it to me
22:28:29XavierGrwhere do I sent it?
22:28:29markuniriver-sim, same thing..
22:28:56markunAnd I get this after configure: sed: 1: "/#SIMUL#/c\ @$(MAKE) -C ...": extra characters after \ at the end of c command

22:37:28Slasherielapsed working on wps :) Now i will do nothing more than the ring buffer..
22:37:39Slasheriand then it should be ready for commit :)
22:37:42t0maswhat? it's working already?
22:38:00Slasheriyes.. :)
22:38:01t0mascan I see it? :)

23:03:02markunok, with the patch it still behaves the same (as it should)
23:03:32LinusNhave you tried with different fonts on iriver?

23:11:27markunI found a small bug.. When I change from a small fron to a much bigger font and I'm at 2/3 of the screen I find my self at the bottom of the screen
23:11:38markunfron -> font
23:11:41amiconnThere's another small bug...
23:12:32CtcpIgnored 1 channel CTCP requests in 0 seconds at the last flood
23:12:32*HCl found the most sweetest java library for reading tags
23:12:36HClit does ogg too
23:13:36markunamiconn: What's the bug?
23:14:05amiconnIf the cursor is placed e.g. one line from the top and the current margin is e.g. 2 (changed bigger font to smaller font), and I'm scrolling towards the top, the cursor stays one line from the top
23:14:16amiconn...not 2 as I would expect
23:14:43markunYes, it's the same problem.
23:15:22amiconnIn fact, this could be called a feature in the latter case
23:15:36amiconn...not jumping in the wrong direction when scrolling
23:16:01HClsweet o.o

23:21:36amiconnThe comments in tree.c are a bit off...
23:21:47 Quit muesli- (Read error: 131 (Connection reset by peer))
23:22:52amiconnmarkun: ...and the MENU_PREV case can be simplified
23:23:12amiconnmenu_lines - (2 * menu_lines) / 3 == menu_lines / 3
23:23:51markunamiconn: I did it that way because of the rounding.. or is that no problem here?
23:24:07amiconnI'd simply check it out...
23:25:52amiconnIf you use menu_lines - menu_lines / 3 for MENU_NEXT, it would be symmetric again, and complexity wouldn't change
23:25:54markunI have checked it out when it was still menu_lines / 2 and then there was a problem with even and odd menu_lines..
23:26:02 Quit t0mas ("good night")
23:27:22amiconnmarkun: This was be cause going 1/2 from the top and 1/2 from the bottom 'touches' in the center
23:27:31amiconnAt least it's my guess...
23:27:54markunAfter I change the font is the screen redrawn by put_cursor? Cause then I should put the center-scrolling code there..
23:28:49markunor menu_draw?
23:29:34markunHm, the font selection is a tree, not a menu..
23:32:22LinusNi'm updating the bootloader now
23:32:43LinusNis there anything else i should change?
23:33:07LinusNi fixed the bug where the hard drive spun up even when the hold switch was on
23:33:49preglowcan't think of anything

23:34:13*LinusN slaps Bagder
23:34:33*Bagder must learn to hide better
23:37:20amiconnmarkun: Your version looks better due to the different rounding
23:38:05amiconnChanging the formulas makes it choose the lower margin, which already is 0 for a 14-px font on archos (4 lines)
23:38:32 Quit Harpy (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
23:38:51markunso I shouldn't change the formula?
23:40:59markunStill don't know where I would like the cursor to be when the font size changes..
23:43:02markunRight now there is only a check to make sure the cursor is not beyond the screen
23:46:45jochenmarkun: why not at the middle of the screen?
23:47:06preglowoh, the dilemma, whether to have another ale or not
23:47:12amiconnI wonder where that check happens...
23:47:40amiconnnm, found it
23:47:41markuntree.c line 772 (about there)
23:48:14amiconnThe while is looking a bit lame...
23:48:41amiconnif (tc.dircursor > tree_max_on_screen) {
23:49:00LinusNsomeone with mingw should update fwpatcher with bootloader v2
23:49:08amiconntc.dirstart += tc.dircursor - tree_max_on_screen;
23:49:20amiconntc.dircursor = tree_max_on_screen;
23:49:22BagderLinusN: you can run make on 'labb'
23:49:34Bagder(just as info)
23:49:36amiconn...should be faster
23:49:49preglowi'm not in windows right now, unfortunately
23:50:03markunyes, but it's not the right thing to do with center-scrolling.
23:50:04*preglow prods rasher
23:50:40markunbecause it will be at the end of the screen.
