00:27:09Bagderand when you run 'make', doesn't it mention convbdf among the first few lines?
00:27:42Bagderthe missing wps stuff is probably because you need to checkout the wps module
00:27:49muesli-gcc -g convbdf.c ...
00:28:52Bagderyou have a fonts dir?
00:29:31Bagdercheck out the fonts and wps modules

01:40:58nico_i have a question about rockbox architecture :
01:41:48nico_is code in firmware/ only use for bootloader or also for application rockbox ?
01:42:40nico_i do not really understand the organisation between apps/ and firmware/
01:43:08markunnico_: apps should containt the hardware independant code, firmware the hardware dependant.

01:44:36nico_so you means low level code with firmware
01:46:54markunyes, I believe low level code should be in firmware
01:49:49***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
01:56:02LinusNthe "firmware" and "apps" directories come from the beginning of rockbox, when we had the idea that rockbox would support different "applications" that ran on top of the base firmware
01:56:36nico_ok ok
01:56:46LinusNwhich actually is almost the case now, where the bootloader uses the firmware lib, like the application does
01:57:30LinusNthe names "firmware" and "apps" are kind of misleading nowadays, but cvs doesn't really like renaming fines and directories
01:57:43nico_firmware is like a kernel which give us hardware access, scheduler of threads ...
01:59:09LinusNsort of, yes

04:04:43saa[b_r]idergood morning jungti
04:04:53Jungti1234hi :)
04:05:37saa[b_r]iderI just saw it! is it real, or fake?
04:06:20saa[b_r]iderI wonder how the controls will be
04:06:39Jungti1234I don't know
04:08:07saa[b_r]iderbefore I got my H340, I was thinking of getting the PMP

04:24:23livesNboxhey guys... I have an h320 −− when I plug in the power adapter it boots into oem firmware. how can I make it automatically boot into rockbox when power is plugged in ?
04:27:41DrumRBoy320|Awaythat would require a change in the bootloader
04:27:59DrumRBoy320|Awayyou would most likelly have to "mod" it yourself
04:28:06DrumRBoy320|Awaywhich i wouldnt suggest
04:28:13DrumRBoy320|Awaysorry :(
04:28:38livesNboxheh.. boo..
04:28:52livesNboxkinda stinks because i leave it in my car with the car setting..
04:28:57livesNboxit powers down great.. perfect..
04:29:24livesNboxbut when I start the car back up.. it boots into iriver firmware.. then I have to pull the power cord.. turn the unit off.. then turn it back on with power out... then plug the power back in..
04:30:08saa[b_r]iderhow exactly do you use the car settings?
04:30:20livesNboxwhat do you mean?
04:30:30livesNboxi don't think it's called the car settings.. it has another name
04:31:07livesNbox"car adapter mode" it's in the general options
04:32:32saa[b_r]ideryeah.. so how do you benefit from this feature?
04:32:45saa[b_r]ideror what does it actually do?
04:32:49livesNboxwell... it pauses the unit when the power turns off to it
04:33:05livesNboxthen your idle settings will kick in (however long you have your idle set for) and turn the unit off
04:33:21livesNboxor if you get back in before the idle turns it off, it will resume playback 5 seconds after your car starts.
04:33:42livesNboxthe last missing link is... to boot back into rockbox and resume playback after the unit has idled off.
04:33:50livesNboxand the power comes back on
04:35:11saa[b_r]iderthat sounds cool... booting into RB when pluged into USB or an AC adapter is planned for the next bootloader, so don't worry about it
04:35:23livesNboxok cool.. where do you find out about that stuff ?
04:36:32saa[b_r]iderit was mentioned somewhere between the RB forum, MR forum, or this channel :D development for the H300 has been crazy for the past month, I forgot where exactly :)
04:36:49livesNboxheh.. ok...
04:37:00saa[b_r]iderbut I'm almost sure Linus wants this for the upcoming bootloader 4, if I'm not mistaking
04:37:06*livesNbox ignores the channel title...
04:37:08livesNboxany idea when?
04:37:34saa[b_r]iderkeep your fingers crossed!
04:37:35livesNboxby the way.. is this the same linus that's behind linux kernel ?
04:37:44livesNboxit's not is it.
04:38:19saa[b_r]iderso which charger do you use? is it a specific iRiver charger, a PSP charger, or a generic one?
04:38:25saa[b_r]iderin the car that is
04:39:42livesNboxgeneric one.
04:39:58livesNboxthen I wired it to the fuse panel.

04:40:28livesNboxi wanted one with a right angle plug on it.. so I had to get a generic one.
04:40:46saa[b_r]iderI was always affraid of frying my player with a cheap generic charger... and most of them came in 5V not 4.5
04:41:10livesNboxyeah. I found one with the right voltage.. I think it's actually one with variable voltage
04:41:59livesNboxno problems.. been using it for years...
04:42:05livesNboxI think I got it like at k-mart or something
04:42:13livesNboxwell.. maybe not years.. maybe like "a year"
04:42:44livesNboxanyway.. I guess I'll just keep my eye out for the next bootloader.
04:43:21livesNboxeven though nobody has any idea of where it is in development :)
04:43:28livesNboxat least, nobody I know.
04:45:44saa[b_r]iderI'll ask around
04:46:02livesNboxok.. if you find anything out.. I'd appreciate a memoserv or an email..

08:10:45Bedlorejust dropped in to ask about iriver mp3 encoding, I read it is unlikely to ever happen. is that still the case?
08:16:01ashridahread where?
08:17:03ashridahi don't think anyone's working on optimising an encoder enough to run at >realtime (which would be necessary to record on the fly), but i wouldn't say it's impossible to do (don't know about licensing issues tho)
08:17:17BedloreFAQ, I cant find it again if you like
08:17:47Bedlorehave you used ogg live encoding?
08:17:56ashridahbesides, i believe someone's got a lossless encoder working, there's just really no record+encode framework yet
08:18:02ashridahme? no
08:20:39 Join Jungti1234 [0] (n=jungti12@
08:22:39Paul_The_NerdYeah, there's currently a lossless wavpack encoder included as a "viewer" type plugin
08:23:14Bedloreyeh I saw that, I really need small files though

10:59:24Bgerhm, question to all h100/h300 owners : what do you think about moving the long "joy"(navi) push in WPS to the REC key, and to map the long joy/navi push to "view current playlist" ?
11:00:27aliaskI'm in favour, but because our player is fairly useless without the backlight, how can we just turn the backlight on?
11:00:27Jungti1234hi Bger
11:00:54Bgeraliask that's another question :)
11:00:58Bgerhi, Jungti1234
11:01:11BgerLinusN ?
11:01:13Bgeramiconn ?
11:01:17BgerBagder ?
11:02:29Bgeraliask regarding this, i think about a new setting (and maybe a specific button only, that is only this button will "eat" the first press for *only* turning the backlight on)
11:02:48LinusNlong navi push means "context menu" in all screens, i don't want to change that
11:03:06aliaskA good idea. The hold button does put the backlight on though.
11:03:17aliaskMaybe just have the record button bring up the playlist.
11:03:27aliaskIt would cause less confusion.
11:03:44BgerLinusN but in wps imho short navi -> tree ; long navi -> current playlist
11:03:51Bgeris more intuitive
11:04:31BagderI'm with LinusN here
11:04:34preglowme too
11:04:48Bgerthan what about mapping the rec to "view current playlist" ?
11:04:50LinusNthe long navi push is about the only thing that is consistent in rockbox
11:04:59preglowexactly, heh
11:05:05Bgerhehe, okay
11:05:15Bagderbut consistency might be seen as inconsistency? ;-)
11:05:21preglowif we're going to change our consistency, i don't think "less consistent" is the way to go
11:06:25Slasherii think it would be better to have just "actions" and user could create the menus as he/she wish
11:07:42Bgerthe reason i suggested this (the long navi push) is because the "view current playlist" is too far as it is now
11:07:47Bgerthat is, in button presses
11:08:06Bgerwell, at least imho
11:08:47LinusNBger: every user has his own opinion about which function should be on a quick-access button
11:09:40BgerLinusN yeah, you're right, and maybe the Slasheri's suggestion is the way to solve this ...
11:09:42LinusNcheck the patch tracker for instance, several "<my favourite function> on <my favourite button>" patches
11:10:14LinusNi don't think full configurability is always a good think
11:10:17BgerLinusN while on this topic, what do you think about mapping the h100's remote buttons 1:1 to the buttons on the main unit?
11:10:37LinusNBger: can it be done?
11:10:56LinusNfull configurability means two bad things:
11:10:59Bgerwhy? something like WPS - "good" built-in default and a way to change
11:11:09LinusN1) much more complicated code
11:11:26LinusN2) a nightmare for the support
11:11:37Bgerheh ...
11:11:49LinusN(support meaning helping people when things don't work as they should)
11:12:09Bgeri don't mean *full* configurability
11:12:21Bgerbut a way for user to edit one action menu
11:12:33Jungti1234See it.
11:13:16Bgerlike making the REC button on H[13]00 "action menu"
11:14:08Bgerwas this "<LinusN> Bger: can it be done?

11:17:52Bgerat least to the level h300's LCD remote maps to the h300's main unit ...
11:21:13Bgeri mean if we want to support iriver remotes runtime, we have 2 possibilities: 1) making h100 and h300 remotes' buttons function equal (i.e. play on h100 does the *same* thing as on h300) 2) using a "mapping" button function
11:21:22Bgeror at least i see this 2

11:24:40LinusNyes, it would be nice if they were as similar as possible
11:24:48Bgeranother q: do we need to initialize the LCD screen in the rockbox itself (isn't the bootloader init enough)
11:25:55BgerLinusN the problem is that 1:1 button mappings on h100 remote are not so good as for h300 ...

11:32:28Bgeryes ?

11:32:45saa[b_r]iderat startup that is
11:33:34saa[b_r]iderwhen this screen is displayed on the main LCD, the remote LCD simply displays a "Rockbox" logo
11:33:35Bgerhm, reset your settings

11:35:44saa[b_r]iderbasically, when you enter the recording screen, the screen isn't updated on the remote, and the remote buttons do nothing, untill you exit the recording screen
11:37:00_FireFly_yeah because the recording screen isn't yet ported to display also on the remote-lcd
11:37:20saa[b_r]iderso the devs are aware of this already?

11:38:46Bgerif _FireFly_ is right (and i'm pretty sure he is) than reseting won't help you with anything

11:39:59saa[b_r]iderBger: yeah I understand that it hasn't been ported to display on the remote LCD. I thought that there was a way for the player not to directly load into the recording screen
11:40:11Bgersaa[b_r]ider there is
11:40:32Bgeryou can change it in Settings->recording->recording settings or something similar

13:28:12Bgerbut as another func or as current one but with one additional param ?
13:29:18LinusNno, do the translation in button_read()
13:31:43Bgerhuh.. but this will affect *everything*
13:32:14Bgeri already do translation there but only in aspect of adc_read->real_button
13:33:09Bgerbut this is the low_level mapping
13:33:32Bgeri'm talking more about real_button->action mapping
13:34:25Bgermaybe action=button_translate(button_returning_function) is the best in this case
13:34:37LinusNwhat is an "action"?
13:34:57Bgerlike "mark the item above" go up one level (in tree, in menu)
13:35:28Bgerthat is the action rockbox perform when you press the button
13:35:36LinusNok, that would of course have to be done locally
13:35:56LinusNthere's no way to centralize that, is it?
13:36:16Bgerbut i think the mappings in the menu and in the tree should be the same, or i'm wrong

14:20:11amiconnThis *seems* tp have worked
14:20:52amiconnI have no idea how to try a thumb target build, and of course I have no target
14:21:25preglowlinuxstb: no, i'm pretty much bogged down with work for some time to come
14:21:55preglowamiconn: so, all you did was pass some interwork flags to configure?
14:22:38amiconnThe strange thing is that my /opt/arm folder is exactly the same size as before
14:22:50preglownow really
14:22:57preglowif you did a thumb build of rockbox, something apparently did work
14:23:08preglowi'll try it myself when i have time
14:23:14preglowthumb code might be very beneficial for us
14:23:25preglowgives better cache usage, and afaik, ipod only has a 16 bit data bus
14:23:52amiconnI did *not* try a target build with thumb code, as I don't know how
14:24:25preglowahh, right, i thought you said you did
14:24:41preglowyou just need to add -mthumb and -menable-interwork, i think
14:24:46preglowpluss add some asm directives here and there
14:26:06Bagder-menable-interwork should only be needed if we use parts that are not thumb, right?
14:26:40preglowand we will
14:26:55preglowfor one, the 64 bit mac instructions are not available in thumb code
14:27:05preglowand ordinary arm code is faster if you code by hand
14:28:03Papricawhy the MAX_MENUS define to 5?
14:28:12Bagderwhy not?

14:29:29BagderPaprica: it would be silly to have arrays bigger than we need

14:29:46*preglow can see a possible malloc debate coming
14:29:54Papricais i set it to 10
14:29:58Papricait takes more memory?
14:30:05amiconnpreglow: The "pluss add some asm directives here and there" is the interesting point
14:30:12Papricaohh =\
14:30:25preglowamiconn: how? it's dirt simple, you just add .code 32 or .arm at the top of ordinary arm code
14:31:14amiconnYes, just that I don't know in what places the arm asm hides (other than crt0.S)
14:31:48preglowcrt0.S you wont have to change, all exception handlers run in arm asm
14:31:51preglowarm mode, i mean
14:31:55preglowyou need to change thread.c
14:32:01preglowand that's about it
14:32:37amiconnWhy not crt0.S, then?
14:32:55preglowbecause that is exception handler code
14:33:25preglowplus stuff that gets called by bootloader
14:33:31amiconnYes, and that means they _have_ to be marked as code32 iiuc
14:33:55preglowcode32 is default, so the entire file will be that

14:36:01preglowto switch to thumb mode, you need to use a special branch instruction that switches to thumb mode if the lower address bit is 1
14:36:19preglowso the image bugger in the bootloader needs to be properly aligned
14:36:48preglowso we don't get any accidental thumb mode switches, but i bet gcc already takes care of this
14:36:59preglowforget it, non-aligned accesses are legal on arm

18:09:44preglowsame cpu as in the video

18:09:56mirakI am interested in adapting libmpeg2 like I did for xvid
18:10:04preglowsaa[b_r]ider: oh, i do love my nano
18:10:11mirakI got to be motivated
18:10:19preglowis that the ffmpeg one?
18:10:19mirakan external motivation would be a plus :p
18:10:24saa[b_r]iderpreglow: what color is your H120?
18:10:29preglowsaa[b_r]ider: silver
18:10:40mirakpreglow: I think it's an external project but maybe ffmpeg uses it
18:10:42mirakI don't know
18:10:44preglowmirak: well, don't look to me for that, i don't much care about video
18:11:14preglowdone any more work with the xvidcore thing, then?
18:11:19mirakunfortunely you are good at optimising too :(
18:11:39mirakthe poor performances didn't motivated me
18:11:51preglowthat's the part that would have motivated me, hehe
18:12:03preglowunfortunately, i don't even have time to code on my nano at the moment
18:12:08mirakI tried to check what could be but in iram, but I think you said nothing much could be done
18:12:16preglownah, i haven't said that
18:12:23preglowi haven't even looked at it
18:12:38NicoFRand if you clean the code ?
18:12:38mirakok so I looked at it and,
18:12:54mirakNicoFR: the code fits in plugin_ram
18:13:03mirakthat's not the issue anymore
18:13:13mirakissue is about decoding speed now
18:13:37mirakso one thing would be to have an imdct in assembly
18:13:52NicoFRand would a JPEG decoder motivate you by any chance ?
18:13:55mirakarm have some imdct in ffmpeg
18:14:04NicoFRor is someone already working on that ?
18:14:05mirakNicoFR: I think there is already one
18:14:19NicoFRthere is one but it uses the grayscale lib IIRC
18:14:41mirakI would put effort in xvid or mpeg2
18:15:03mirakanyway any video codec uses a bidimentional imdct
18:16:18mirakwell my goal was to have video at more than 10fps like the iriver firmware
18:16:58mirakxvid and mpeg4 can't do that imho on this device.
18:17:01NicoFRmaybe it would be possible with a less cpu-intensive format ?
18:17:15markunanimated gif! :)
18:17:18mirakmpeg2 is less intensive they said
18:17:54lostlogicdo we have enough RAM to buffer a less compressed format?
18:17:57mirakeven with mpeg2 we would still need an imdct in assembly. and that's the most difficult thing probably to do
18:18:02 Join [1]Krazyjim [0] (
18:18:31miraklostlogic: yes, we would need to load more data from hard drive
18:18:52mirakbut I can watch 6 hours of xvid movie with normal firmware
18:19:19markunWould be nice if we could make the optimized imdct work for all the codecs. Everyone has their own fixed point format, that makes it a bit difficult.
18:19:24miraksomething like that. even 3 hours would be ok for me with a good framerate
18:19:37mirakmarkun: yes I agree :D
18:20:17preglowso, you don't use iram and you don't use emac?
18:20:18mirakmarkun: if you look at the imdct used by mpeg or jpeg, it's just two imdct

18:21:48mirakmerbanan: what's the m for ?
18:21:49markunpreglow: ?
18:22:06markunOr were you talking about the xvid player?
18:22:09preglowi mean the xvidcore thing
18:22:25mirakpreglow: what do you want ?
18:22:32merbananmirak: it is used in audio (aac,vorbis,ac3)
18:23:09mirakmerbanan: yeah but the m is for modified right ?
18:23:15mirakmerbanan: yeah but the m is for modified, right ?
18:23:43preglowmodified because it's a lapped transforms as opposed to the ordinary dcts, which are ordinary block based
18:23:59merbananmy point is that it's best to keep them apart
18:24:03preglowanyway, the only mdct i have seen is one dimensional
18:24:05mirakpreglow: what means lapped ?
18:24:14preglowmirak: the transform blocks overlap
18:24:42mirakpreglow: then an interpolation is done ?
18:24:54preglowthe overlapping is a feature of the transform
18:25:04preglowit eliminates boundary artifacts
18:25:20preglowboundary artifacts are very noticable for audio
18:25:30 Quit Matze ("Miranda IM! Smaller, Faster, Easier.")
18:25:48mirakfor image as well, there is the blocks
18:25:58preglowyes, but you really only see them when you zoom in
18:25:58mirakthat's less disturbing probably
18:26:08preglowfor audio, it would have been completely useless
18:26:27markunwould imdct not be nice for video?
18:26:47preglowi don't even think i've ever seen it formulated for 2d
18:27:01markunHm.. no, probably not
18:27:02preglowanywho, the problem seems to be dealt with differently in video
18:27:07preglowh264 has deblocking, for instance
18:27:15preglowbut done in a completely different way than overlapping the transform
18:28:33mirakI am not sure why there is blocking on image, because I have done in univ dct and idct on full image in grayscales
18:28:50preglowthere always is blocking
18:28:54mirakit works as well, and you can cut off frequencies
18:29:00preglowit's just unnoticable, since the blocks are so small
18:29:08preglowbut yeah
18:29:16preglowthis idct can be pretty easily optimised
18:29:18mirakpreglow: you see what I mean ?
18:29:46NicoFRmirak: what kind of studies are you in ?

18:51:31BenacoolHi guys! I have a little question about playlists on my H320..
18:52:55NicoFRgo ahead
18:53:11BenacoolIs it normal that when I use a playlist with accentuated filenames in it that rockbox skip these accentuated files ? (It show (ERR) in the playlist viewer in front of the filename)
18:54:11Benacoolbut when he create is own playlist (on the fly) it recognize them
18:55:50Benacool(this bug is only with m3u playlists created with Winamp for exemple)
18:57:05_FireFly_maybe a m3u-create failure in winamp
18:57:10Pisilly question, do the playlists work with the origonal fw?
18:57:18Benacool2 sec<
18:57:31_FireFly_Benacool: check the two playlists
18:57:40_FireFly_in which way they are differ
18:57:47Benacool2 min ;-)
18:58:51Benacoolyes the playlist works in the original firmware
18:59:16Benacoolthe dynamic one is not converted so didn't work but its normal
18:59:19preglowi'm out, later
19:01:26Benacoolall playlists with accentuated filenames in it don't work well, it always skip these files

19:02:55amiconnHow did you build these playlists? On the unit itself, or in a PC program
19:03:11amiconnIf you did the latter, you need to save the playlist as UTF-8
19:03:37Benacoolyea but how i say to EAC to save m3u files in UTF-8 lol ?!
19:03:56*amiconn didn't even know that EAC can create playlists
19:04:14Benacoolwhen you rip your CD he can make a playlist ...
19:04:16amiconnI don't use playlists often
19:04:34Benacooland each time a RIP a CD he create a playlist
19:04:52_FireFly_Benacool: load the playlist-files in an editor which can save in UTF-8 and save the files as UTF-8 with it
19:04:55Benacooli'll test with winamp
19:05:11Benacoolyea ... but i must do that with every playlists -_-
19:05:35_FireFly_hmm under linux there would be a simple way to do it with an script ;)
19:06:01BenacoolLinux don't like my NVRaid ;-)
19:06:16_FireFly_NVRaid is an faik raid
19:06:21Benacooli know i know
19:06:34_FireFly_convmv is the program
19:06:54_FireFly_i have run an raid on such an fiak-raid with software-raid under linux
19:07:08_FireFly_maybe you can run the convmv under cygwin
19:07:21_FireFly_or ther is maybe an win32 build of it
19:07:38Benacoolyea they are apps to recognize these fake raid but don't try to boot directly on it ... it's to difficult for me lol
19:08:10_FireFly_no problem here
19:08:20_FireFly_is also an NV-Sata-faikRaid
19:08:30_FireFly_i ran evms
19:08:33_FireFly_under gentoo
19:08:51_FireFly_and also the boot is on the raid as Raid-1
19:09:48Benacooli read that you can create some kind of ram-drive where the app can recognize the fake raid array and be able to boot on it after
19:10:02_FireFly_evms has an initrd for it
19:10:21_FireFly_to setup the raid-array
19:10:24_FireFly_on boot
19:10:32Benacool(i don't know a lot on Linux ...)
19:10:45Benacoollike ... what's initrd lol
19:11:06_FireFly_initrd is an initramdisk ;=
19:11:20_FireFly_an initrd is loaded and mounted when the kernel-boots
19:11:36_FireFly_most binary-distributions uses an initrd
19:11:58_FireFly_to load all necessary hardware drivers for the maschine
19:12:04_FireFly_on boot
19:12:51Benacoolso you must have it on an another hard-drive ?
19:13:17Benacool(i have two drives in raid 0 (on the nvraid) + another sata drive)
19:14:11_FireFly_i don*t know if it is for raid0 also but at least for Raid1 (mirror) you can access each partition seperatly becuase they have the same files on it
19:14:22Benacooli could simply install linux on this SATA drive ....
19:15:15_FireFly_Benacool: you can install it on the seperate sata-drive and mount the raid0 array elswhere in the filetree
19:15:30_FireFly_but afaik you can't use the current raid0 array under linux
19:15:38_FireFly_you must setup it again
19:16:07_FireFly_becuase your current one is created under "windows"
19:16:40Benacooli found a little app that permit to recognize raid created under windows but ... damn i don't it in my favorites ^^'
19:16:59Benacooli search it
19:19:06Benacooli think it's that
19:19:22_FireFly_you can handle dmraid-array with evms
19:19:56_FireFly_it has several modules for the differents software-raid solutions under linux
19:20:01_FireFly_dmrad lvms
19:21:12_FireFly_but you can also only use dmraid
19:21:21_FireFly_it's your choice ;)
19:22:17Benacoolon top of that all my partitions are in NTFS ... lol
19:22:59_FireFly_then use convmv with cygwin
19:23:41_FireFly_if cygwin has this program included
19:25:14Benacoolconvmv ... this app convert something ? or it allows to rocognize my partitions in ntfs ?
19:25:19markunconvmv is not what he needs
19:25:30markunThat would only rename his filename

19:52:10leftrightLinusN; found a bug, using file tree tracks that dont have leading zeros, aren't listed sequentialy in numerical order in Rockbox, but ok in Explorer or suchlikes, without leading zeros up to number 10 the files are listed randomly in albums/directories
19:52:55LinusNthat's not a bug
19:54:14markunwell, if they are listed randomly that doesn't sound good
19:55:06markunit should still be 1, 10, 11, 2, 3 ...
19:55:29leftright1,2,3 etc without leading zeros methinks
19:56:17_FireFly_it shoudl 0,10,11,...,2,20,...5,..,55
19:56:59_FireFly_when no leading 0 is used
19:57:12leftrightwhy does exporer list them sequentially then ?, unless MS is wrong ofcourse
19:57:12_FireFly_in 2 digits numbering
19:57:23_FireFly_no it doesn't
19:57:30markunleftright: is there a right or wrong here? It's just different
19:58:07_FireFly_leftright: the ms-explorer list such files also "random"
19:58:09leftrightok its just odd to have files listed non sequentially unless they have leading zeros
19:58:46leftrightmy explorer lists them sequentially, thats why i noticed it
19:58:51_FireFly_how should know the compare
19:59:01_FireFly_leftright: afaik not
19:59:16leftrightMine does
19:59:29_FireFly_or you have only files which begins with numbers 0-9
19:59:52KohlrabiAt least XP does sort sequentially wihtout leading zeroes
19:59:56LinusNthe files are lexically sorted
20:00:01Kohlrabi9x doesn't afaik
20:00:15leftrightnope I have more than 10 files in albums and all are listed sequentially in Explorer
20:00:15_FireFly_leftright create following files 1files, 2file,10file
20:00:22amiconnWindows tries to be 'clever'. Whether this is really clever is debatable
20:00:42_FireFly_they will be listet 1file,10file,2file
20:00:49leftrightI dont have to create it, I have it on my player right now
20:01:09_FireFly_but this is no bug
20:01:12_FireFly_at all
20:01:20leftrightthank you,
20:01:21Kohlrabiit sorts: 1file, 2file, 10file
20:01:37Kohlrabiexplorer, that is
20:01:43markun_FireFly_: maybe the german windows sorts differently?
20:01:47_FireFly_then windows makes a seperate work to sort such file
20:01:48leftrightI will add leading zeros to my entire 40 gig music collection
20:01:53Kohlrabiyes, it does
20:02:01Kohlrabiit sorts sequentially nonetheless ;)
20:02:13markunleftright: or add the feature to your rockbox to sort the numbers
20:02:14Kohlrabileftright: yeah, you should do that
20:02:16_FireFly_markun: the last time i have looked at the ordering of such files under windows is long long ago ;)
20:02:57Kohlrabileftright: should be quick with foobar2k-masstagger
20:03:20leftrightdear oh dear, if I could code i wouldn't be bothering you with trivia
20:04:05leftrightI hate leading zeros in track numbers though, just seems wrong
20:04:13Benacoolleftright: you can use some software to rename all your file form the ID3Tags if they are well made
20:05:21Benacooland it can put 01, 02 , etc in front of your filename with the track tag
20:05:47markunleftright: I also can't say that I love them, but most programs don't sort correctly without them, not only rockbox
20:05:57leftrightdont want leading zeros in ID3, only in file name
20:06:20Benacooli take the tag 1 (track) and put 01 in the filename
20:06:47markunor use foobar like kohlrabi says

20:16:45_FireFly_for using dd from ubuntu for the ipod i guess?
20:16:56Kohlrabithat's qhy I chose "album", not CD
20:17:11Kohlrabi(i didn't know about CD specs, though ;))
20:17:18amiconnI'm looking for a usable distro, as I'm planning to get an AMD64 PC
20:17:26_FireFly_ah ok :)
20:17:49amiconnKohlrabi: All of today's albums are published on CD, so no album will exceed the CD specs
20:18:07_FireFly_i guess you don't want a source-distri like gentoo
20:19:06markunFreeBSD! :)
20:19:18markunWell, not a distro
20:19:24_FireFly_afaik ubuntu is based on debian
20:19:48amiconnI alreday have a debian VM
20:20:18 Part leftright
20:20:40amiconnI don't want an rpm-based distro
20:21:05_FireFly_but an binary distro? :)
20:21:39amiconndebian is nice, but either you install the ages-old 'stable' variant, or you run into various version conflicts
20:21:51amiconn(happened to me with testing)
20:21:56_FireFly_yeah that is a big prolem with debian
20:22:04amiconnEven testing packages are rather old sometimes
20:22:08_FireFly_if you want stay up to date
20:22:35merbananamiconn: gentoo is fairly usable, if you have the time compiling it
20:22:36Benacoolhow godfather works lol ... when a click on apply in rename tab, nothng happen ?!
20:22:54_FireFly_merbanan: ;)
20:24:00lostlogicI use gentoo stable for my server and unstable for my workstations... aside from crossdev's failure to actually build a working cross compiler for rockbox I have few problems with it.
20:25:09amiconnI don't want to compile my distro either. It's already more than enough hand-work to get a linux box up & running compared to windows
20:25:29_FireFly_but then it rans forever ;)
20:26:05lostlogica perspective I completely disagree with, but this is not the time nor place. recommend SuSE I do.
20:26:06_FireFly_windows gets slow if you install/unistall much programms
20:26:30_FireFly_SUSE uses rpm and he wants no rpm

20:29:33amiconnThat's why I'm trying ubuntu now
20:29:56amiconnThe good thing with VMware is that you can test this & that...
20:30:34_FireFly_amiconn: if you don*t liek gnome the try kubuntu it has kde as default
20:31:02amiconnI like gnome more than KDE
20:31:16Lear_firefly_: Currently, the apt-get UI for Kubuntu isn't as good as the Ubuntu one...
20:31:39_FireFly_i didn*t hat kubuntu yet seen running myself
20:32:14amiconnlostlogic: As for the installation times & handwork - I usually get a windows machine up & running (OS & all built-in hardware) within 2 hours. With linux it's more like 2 days
20:32:33amiconnThat's not an inherent flaw of Linux, rather it's a flaw of the HW manufacturers

20:40:18Learlostlogic: using the profiler, have you made any tests with Tremor using no iram at all? I was thinking it might be useful to re-do the iram usage based on profiling results...
20:50:13lostlogicLear: I had done some a while back, but not on the latest profiling or tremor code.
20:50:53LearNot completely wasted if I should start looking at it then, I guess...
20:52:13lostlogicyeah −− the thing to be wary of is that inlining changes makes significant change in how profiling looks. which is why I created and used that NO_PROF_ATTR to not profile inlined calls.
20:53:54mirakamiconn: depends of the hardware
20:54:30mirakamiconn: 2 days seems a bit long for linux. What are you doing with it ? :p
20:54:32LearSo inline calls are not included at all? (In call count, that is.)
20:55:06_FireFly_maybe 2days are only with gentoo or LFS
20:55:27amiconnNo, that was with binary distros
20:55:35amiconn(SuSE especially, but also debian)
20:55:57amiconnThe problem is that no distro provides drivers for all components
20:56:01amiconn(it can't)
20:56:27lostlogicLear −− if they are marked with that attribute, they aren't profiled at all. you can leave them profiled, but it seems to skew results somewhat due to the extra jsrs and instructions on each call, and if course profiling a song takes a lot longer when nothing that's going on.
20:56:41_FireFly_gentoo has many drivers as ebuild
20:57:15amiconnThe last problem I had was getting wlan to work (with wpa)
20:57:35amiconnThat even was with a card where the chipset manufacturer supplied open source drivers
20:57:36_FireFly_which card ??
20:57:39lostlogicthat's a rough edge for sure still.
20:59:08amiconn_FireFly_: LevelOne WNC-0301 (Ralink RL2500 chipset)
20:59:22lostlogic(that said, I use exclusively wireless networking at home with wpa)
20:59:22amiconnlostlogic: Not the only one
20:59:58amiconnAnother linux problem is that there is sometimes more than one system for the same purpose, but the systems are incompatible
21:00:06amiconn(e.g. oss <-> alsa)
21:00:19lostlogicamiconn: depends on what you need and a lot of things. I'm a big linux geek, so I completely don't notice a lot of things that really bother windows users, and I don't use a full gui environment to see the issues with those.

21:01:13amiconnMy main requirement is that I need a working system, so that I can work *with* the PC instead of working *for* the PC
21:02:01amiconnIt's of little importance how the system is called.
21:03:05lostlogicthat;s the point of a distribution... if you use packages provided by the distribution or explicitly for that distribution then you shouldn't run into those compatibility issues. Ubuntu does seemlike a good idea for you.

22:38:16amiconnmirak: No I don't, and I don't plan to have one
22:38:24Benacoolsomebody know the utility of the hex "EE BB BF" at the beginning of a UTF-8 file ? (something to do with the byte-order mark ??)
22:38:37LearNot all functions can be found, it seems...
22:38:43Learbenacool: correct.
22:38:55Benacoolwhat is it ?
22:39:00markunbyte odering in UTF-8?
22:39:05markundon't think so
22:39:05Benacoolyea ...
22:39:28lostlogicLear: map files get non-statics, but for statics you need objdump combined with the map file start addesses
22:39:32Benacoolbecause rockbox recognize them as caracters
22:39:44Benacoolin playlists
22:40:04_FireFly_The BOM for UTF-8 is 0xef 0xbb 0xbf
22:40:08Benacool(crappy converter)
22:40:25lostlogicthe parseLibraryAndObject method is supposed to get an offset for a given object file within a section of ram
22:40:31Learlostlogic: ah, yes, that must be it. Does your parser handle non-statics (I guess so, since it seems to parse the lib file too)?
22:40:48amiconnmarkun: It's the unicode BOM encoded as UTF-8. Not necessary for byte order, but as a marker for an UTF-8 file
22:40:56lostlogicyeah, it does... when it works

22:42:15Learunicode/utf-8 support isn't yet complete for files, afaik...
22:42:29_FireFly_an BOM for UTF-8 isn't needed at all
22:42:48_FireFly_as the faq on say
22:43:01markunAlso the viewer needs to be updated. phaedrus was working on it, but he doesn't have time for it anymore.
22:43:16LearCould be useful for Rockbox to decide if a file should be treated as UTF-8 or as the codepage setting says...

22:48:34lostlogicare wps updates stopped when the LCD is off?
22:49:49mirakI have not found yet a music player that synchronise files on a UMS digital audio playr
22:50:24mirakBagder: unison
22:50:49mirakBagder: but the problem remains the same, you can most of the time only sync a full folder
22:51:13Bagdernot with rsync
22:52:06lostlogicrsync seems to have problems with fat32. it is fine if you use chksums, but then it's not a whole ton faster than just copying everything...
22:52:40Bagderit most certainly is
22:52:55mirakBagder: rsync you need to have a kind of image
22:52:56Bagderit syncs the files that are missing
22:53:10Bagderrsync syncs files
22:53:13miraka local image of what is on the dap
22:53:22mirakyes but it syncs all files
22:53:30Bagderall given files, yes
22:53:46mirakI mean, if you have a folder music/ if you rsync to the dap root it will stuff all files in it
22:54:36Bagderif you tell it to sync the whole folder, yes
22:54:57lostlogicmirak: it is designed to only update, but it has a hard time telling what to update (at least in my experience) between reiserfs and fat32
22:55:15BagderI disagree
22:55:25BagderI sync fine between ext3 and fat32
22:55:35lostlogicI must just suck.
22:56:45mirakwell maybe you want to try unison it works, but the problem is that it default to syncing all files, and doesn't remember what you didn't wanted to sync.
22:56:59mirakso you must say to do nothing on most of the files :-/
23:01:24LearHe he, profiling is interesting... :)
23:02:06lostlogicLear: Yay, makes me happy that someone else is finally playing with it! :)
23:04:06LearReally gives you an idea how much iram speeds things up, on a function per function basis.
23:05:01LearE.g., compared to nothing in iram, moving the pcm array(s) in mdct_backward to iram about halves execution time...
23:05:04lostlogicyeah, is interesting to strategically try to balance between iram and code cache...
23:06:22Moosis this profiling thing could help for others codecs too?
23:06:41LearSure, as it tells you where to focus optimization work...
23:07:34lostlogicwas why it was worth writing a real profiling patch instead of just modifying tremor functions to count themselves manually
23:08:04Moosgood thought :X
23:08:12mirakLear: on xvid I have put an array used to mask the idct result, and the boost is visible. I think it decodes 3-4 images per seconds now

23:09:32mirakyep, there is many arrays that can be put into iram
23:10:05miraksome of them are into a O(2) loop
23:10:08saratogaWhat the latency on the IRAM like?
23:10:43lostlogic1 bus cycle?
23:10:44saratogawhats I mean
23:11:03saratogaso its basically programmable L1 then?
23:11:14lostlogic1 bus cycle is not 1 cpu cycle
23:11:20lostlogicl1 is 1 cpu
23:11:36saratogawhy a bus cycle? i thought it was ondie?
23:12:15lostlogicstill has to go through the ram controller iirc. someone may have to correct me.

23:13:56LinusNiram should be 1 cpu cycle
23:14:36lostlogicah, the core speed is 2x clock, as is the L1
23:15:49LinusNthe bus speed is 1/2 the cpu clock

23:31:26saratogaI thought their was only an L1 I cache?
23:31:56lostlogicsaratoga: correct.
23:32:22saratogaso then the relative speed is irrelevent
23:32:31saratogasince all you can do is fetch ops
23:32:49saratogaor am i missing something
23:33:27muesli__Bagder did that information help you to answer my question?
23:33:37lostlogicyou can put code in IRAM, but tyat prevents it from being cached in the L1, so if IRAM is slower than L1, sometimes moving things to iram could slow us down.
23:34:39saratogathats interesting
23:34:46saratogabut makes sense
23:35:14Bagdermuesli__: that is secure enough ;-)
23:36:03miraksomeone was talking about an utf8 converter ?
23:38:03amiconnIram and icache are both 1-cycle so they are equally fast
23:38:59amiconnPutting code in IRAM gives a slight speedup compared to icache
23:39:15amiconn...because it's already there and doesn't need to be fetched from SDRAM
23:39:38 Quit ataxy ("Chatzilla [Firefox 1.5/2005111116]")
23:39:39amiconnUsing IRAM for data is more efficient most of the time though, because there is no dcache
23:41:42lostlogicso iram is only worthwhile for code when the oft called code won't all be icached. (exists in more than 512 16 byte areas)
23:42:44amiconnEither that, or if it suffers from cache address aliasing
23:42:52amiconn(the icache is direct mapped)
