#rockbox log for 2006-02-27

00:00:04Mikachuif you use zsh you can also do 'zmv -W *.bmp.c *.c'
00:00:21Bagderinfamis: newname=`echo $old | sed 's/bmp.c/.c/'`
00:00:30Bagdermv $old $newname
00:00:58Mikachuor you can just do {mv $a ${a%bmp.c}.c}
00:01:10Mikachuthat was not exactly right but you get the ida
00:01:21Bagderthat too isn't sh
00:01:35Mikachuheh, wrote the {} out of habit
00:01:40Mikachubut the thing within should work in bash too
00:01:45*Bagder is portable by habit ;-)
00:01:49linuxstb_infamis: Have you got bmp files you want to use in Rockbox?
00:01:59BagderMikachu: bash, yes, sh no
00:02:19Mikachuwell, i think when you write a command locally, you can stretch the limits a bit
00:02:35BagderI'm just grumpy
00:03:34Mikachuso i have no idea what this command did
00:03:37Mikachufor b (*) {mkdir $TJO/$b:r; for a (`grep mnt/ipod $b`) {echo $a $b; cp $a $TJO/$b:r}; cp $b $TJO }
00:05:04infamislinuxstb_: no I'm just trying to bmp2rb the normal apps/plugins/bitmaps/native bitmaps
00:05:16infamissince make won't do it for me
00:05:49skwadnight all
00:06:03midkaynight skwad
00:06:14infamisso I did it by hand but had .bmp.c cause I had: for i in `ls *.bmp`; do bmp2rb $i > $i.c; done
00:06:30 Quit skwad ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
00:07:07linuxstb_Which bitmaps is make failing to convert? Does it convert any?
00:09:12infamisthe only file that exists in x5-sim-build/apps/plugins/native is bejeweled_jewels.160x128x16.c & it has the text "can't read file" or somethinf that nature (and then there's dep-bitmaps-native)
00:09:36infamiswhich breaks make
00:10:28linuxstb_That's because the sim is broken for the x5
00:11:32infamiswhat's broke about it?
00:11:45infamisdan stelberg seems to think the sim works based on the forum threads in x5
00:12:13linuxstb_The sudoku bitmaps are missing, which cause compilation to fail.
00:12:20Bagderit doesn'
00:12:23Bagdert fail on linux
00:12:28Bagderonly on cygwin
00:12:31linuxstb_I know.....
00:12:47Bagderbut yes, it is that broken
00:13:03Bagderinfamis: I can build and run it fine
00:13:06*petur wonders why wasn't closed by linus
00:13:12Bagderit just doesn't work for all parts
00:13:23infamishmm...damn cygwin
00:13:52Bagderso, you need to fix the badness first
00:14:03Bagderor just edit them out from the SOURCES
00:14:21infamiswhat's the badness?
00:15:26Bagderyour build shoudl tell you
00:15:53Bagderthere's a lack of BMP files
00:16:13Bagderor if you want, the plugins shouldn't be built until there are such files
00:18:27infamisthe bmp files in exist apps/plugins/bitmaps/native but bmp2rb doesn't make them
00:18:34infamis"error can't read image"
00:18:50infamisout of the 71 it fails on 6 bmps
00:19:37 Quit muesli- (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:20:00Bagderthen use make V=1
00:20:05Bagderto see the full command lines
00:20:11Bagderthen figure out why they fail
00:20:13Bagderand adjust
00:22:28BagderI think I'll adjust my ld to fail for this and possible fix these
00:22:48infamismaking now...cygwin is slow
00:23:12BagderS L O W
00:25:02Paul_The_NerdY'know, with the sources file, if you just changed all the defines for H120 (width == 160, height ==120, depth ==2) to depth >=2, wouldn't that fix the missing BMP issue for now?
00:26:32Paul_The_NerdIs there a define for X5?
00:27:59infamisalmost thought it was gonna work (doing the bmp2rbs by hand); til ld failed with undefined refs
00:28:10infamison bejeweled.c
00:29:15Paul_The_Nerdinfamis: Did you try just updating the sources file?
00:29:34infamisI wouldn't know which ones to update!
00:29:40infamisor how to!
00:30:10Paul_The_NerdWell, let me see if it works first.
00:31:50Paul_The_NerdI've got a few other plugins lying around that definitely won't run on X5, and I don't feel like fixing the keymappings for them, so I have to rearrange things so they don't build either.
00:32:32infamiswhat makes them not run on the x5? or it's yet to be determined?
00:33:12 Quit BHSPitLappy (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:34:10Paul_The_NerdOh, well, they're just ones like Bubbles, Blackjack, and the dice roller, that aren't even in CVS.

00:35:32*Paul_The_Nerd mutters.
00:35:38Paul_The_NerdI typed => rather than >=
00:37:20Paul_The_NerdIn /bitmaps/native there's a file called sources. If my theory is correct, there's a few lines that look like this: #elif (LCD_WIDTH == 160) && (LCD_HEIGHT == 128) && (LCD_DEPTH == 2) that should simply have (LCD_DEPTH >=2) instead, as a hack to let the x5sim build. At least until color bitmaps are put in for them.
00:37:59Paul_The_NerdYeah, with that *one* change, I got the x5sim to install. Well, two actually, since there's two lines that need to be modified.
00:38:06Paul_The_NerdBut one of them was for blackjack.
00:38:09Paul_The_NerdWhich you don't have.
00:38:29Paul_The_Nerdinfamis: Okay, use that and it'll work.

00:42:11Paul_The_NerdToo fast for me.
00:42:50nave7693hi as of one hour ago the CVS source is not displaying japanese characters correctly on archos
00:44:21Bagderyou mean you cvs updated an hour ago?

00:47:06mirakthe input equaliser really allow to have a nice sound
00:47:15mirakon the H300, even with external mic

00:47:36peturinput equaliser?
00:47:43mirakI can record longer in wav than with a compressed mp3 and quality is better
00:47:57mirakpetur: well the gain and volume indicator
00:48:29YouCeyEPaul_The_Nerd, i dont have that option..
00:48:40Bagdernave7693: I have no explanation and I know very little about those parts
00:48:40mirakpetur: with iriver firmware I was just praying it would not be too loud, and since conditions were always changing
00:48:52YouCeyEi have volume,bass,trable... i want a prebuilt equalizer setting
00:49:10YouCeyEhow can i use preset equalizer?
00:49:11infamisDoes the enter button (on the pc-keyboard) work in the simulator?
00:49:11Paul_The_NerdYouCeyE: Isn't "Eqaulizer" the bottom choice?
00:49:20Paul_The_Nerd"Equalizer" rather
00:49:29Paul_The_NerdYouCeyE: WHat kind of mp3 player are you using?
00:49:32YouCeyEnope.. crossfeed the last one
00:49:36YouCeyEiriver h120

00:51:08Paul_The_NerdYouCeyE: The equalizer was added on Feb 7.
00:51:21YouCeyElol.. ok Paul_The_Nerd :)
00:51:23Paul_The_NerdYouCeyE: You need to download a daily or bleeding edge build.

00:52:27Bagderinfamis: then bmp2rb has problems on your system
00:52:27infamiswhich in bmp2rb.c meant it didn't read all of the data?
00:52:34Paul_The_Nerdinfamis: And that's with the change I suggested, and then erasing and making a new build directory?
00:52:52Paul_The_NerdOr at least rerunning configure
00:52:59Bagderthat bejeweled image isn't affected by that change
00:53:00infamisright, but I was still compiling while you suggested...and it just now finished
00:53:04Paul_The_NerdOh, bejeweled
00:53:16infamisno this is without the change!
00:53:24Paul_The_NerdYeah, but bejeweled wouldn't be affected by it
00:53:44infamisI started compiling with make V=1 and once that finished I was to post the exact command; now I'll try it with your change
00:53:54Paul_The_NerdThough you've done all those manual conversions, so I'm kinda wondering if they could get in the way now.
00:54:11infamisI deleted those manual ones before I make'd

00:55:42 Quit linuxstb_ ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
00:55:55Paul_The_Nerdinfamis: I would suggest deleting the /apps/plugins/bitmaps/native/sources file, and doing a cvs up to get a clean one, just to make sure the change is right (since it's in CVS now)
00:56:09Paul_The_NerdAssuming you haven't made any other changes to it.

01:00:05Bagdera chairman can come useful ;-)
01:00:24Shadowarrior13How do people here compile without cygwin on windows?
01:00:29Shadowarrior13cygwin sucks so badly
01:00:33LinusNwe don't
01:00:48Shadowarrior13stfu :P
01:00:50Paul_The_NerdYeah, you compile without it in two steps: Acquire Cygwin, then compile with it.
01:01:05LinusNShadowarrior13: don't use windows then
01:01:06infamissome bmp2rb debugging: "error - Can't read image; read 6142, expected 6144" on bmp2rb with bejeweled_jewels.160x128x16.bmp
01:01:11Bagderthere's another way:
01:01:15Bagderinstall vmware, run linux, compile
01:01:16Shadowarrior13I know what's coming.
01:01:28LinusNShadowarrior13: the you don't have to use software that sucks
01:01:30Bagdervmware is vastly faster then cygwin
01:01:34Paul_The_NerdI bet if you were sufficiently determined you could get it running with mingw32 or something.
01:01:41peturI haven't tried colinux yet, it might be an alternative way to run linux under windows...
01:01:52JdGordoncolunix is good
01:01:58Bagderyes, mingw32 could very well work
01:02:00Shadowarrior13This is why everyone should host precompiled binaries for the noobs
01:02:01peturdoes it work?
01:02:04JdGordoni prefer it to cygwin.. but its a pain to setup
01:02:29JdGordonCAN be a pain to setup i should have said
01:02:54Paul_The_NerdJdGordon: The real key, is, once you have it set up is it faster for compiling?
01:03:07infamismaybe that bitmap has the wrong padded_width?
01:03:19mirakpetur: yes colinux is good
01:03:28mirakpetur: if you use command line mostly
01:03:31JdGordoni dunno... i wanst playing with rb last time i had colniux working properly
01:03:38 Quit ender` (" Going to church does not make a person religious, nor does going to school make a person educated, any more than going to a )
01:04:04*petur moves colinux testing a bit up on his agenda
01:04:20Paul_The_Nerdinfamis: It works for me. It's possible that your bitmap is bad and needs replaced or something?
01:04:27 Quit mirak (Remote closed the connection)
01:04:52Paul_The_Nerdmirak: If you're on windows using cygwin to compile rockbox, all you're probably using is the command line.
01:05:22Paul_The_NerdMan, I need to stop talking to people right after they leave.
01:05:49infamisPaul_The_Nerd, the bitmap is from cvs though??
01:07:21Paul_The_Nerdinfamis: So's mine. Something's not working on your system though, so I was wondering if maybe your .bmp was corrupt or something.

03:42:18Shadowarrior13No, the color of the background.

03:44:13Shadowarrior13No, you gave me where to go, which I can't use.
03:44:24JdGordonbah, sure u can...

04:24:23midkayi'd agree it should be better describled.. cygwin installation instructions tell you to simply install sdl from the rockbox mirror, you shouldn't need to know much more if that's the way you're doing it?..

07:05:22coobit should tell you when you try to compile.
07:05:44coobtry a generic help channel, this is a channel for rockbox stuff
07:07:39josh_JdGordon: you need all the libs so gcc knows *where* the symbols are (more specifically than "in libc" or something) - it relieves some of the stress from, which is good because that means apps can load faster.

09:51:57B4gderbut the forums are done by Jeff et all
09:52:33peturwell it's just a detail anyway...
09:52:33B4gderbut yes, we should point that out to them
09:53:38LinusNi'm changing it now
09:53:52JdGordonB4gder: while your playying.. get rid of the sim32 builds in the table if they arnt being done anymore...?
09:54:05B4gderthey aren't done and they will vanish
09:54:20B4gderthat's all automatic
09:54:41petur? but there's no build result for them in the table
09:55:10B4gderno, but the columns are based on more data than what is visible in the table
09:55:32peturah I see (or don't to be precise ;) )
09:55:47B4gderthe first pass of the scripts gathers all build types
09:55:57B4gderand the second output the last N entries
09:56:07B4gdersimply speaking
09:56:39B4gderand thus "all types" are all existing in the build logs we have, and we have N days backlog
09:57:13B4gderso it takes N days for a build to vanish
09:57:17peturI'm sure there's a reason for this
09:57:21B4gderwith N being 8 I believe
09:57:45B4gderwell, it can of course be improved
09:57:53B4gderI just find it not that important
09:58:11peturnot important, just a bit confusing

10:25:38B4gder I'd say
10:25:46peturby several orders of magnitude...
10:25:58B4gderhow do you know?
10:26:15B4gderyou haven't seen these builds before
10:26:37B4gderwe've run this for many days and I'd say that build time is about accurate
10:26:47LinusNi see them now, and it has so far taken 28 minutes :-P
10:26:52B4gderyou're thinking about the old builds
10:27:22B4gderwell we can never know how long a new build will take
10:27:31B4gderonly how long previous builds have taken
10:27:48LinusNi guess one of the build machines has problems
10:27:57B4gderand of course with distributde builds, one or few server problems will affect build times drastically
10:27:57peturnevermind, I don't know the build system so I don't know what I'm talking about anyway...
10:28:03JdGordonif you want faster builds put more errors in them !!!
10:28:42B4gderthe build time is based on the previous 4 builds
10:29:07peturare we distributed already?
10:29:26B4gderthis is three machines building
10:29:34coobadd more machines :)
10:29:36peturwow, ok.. that explains the 19 seconds...
10:29:47B4gderI'm in the process of adding another build server
10:30:17B4gderI'll announce the news soon
10:30:21B4gderand ask for more servers
10:30:37JdGordonill dontae my comp to the cause..
10:30:49JdGordoni assume its just install distcc and give u the ip?
10:31:07B4gderdistcc wasn't good enough for us
10:31:27B4gderdistcc is only good if you have really fast net and slow compiles
10:31:43B4gderwe have slow net and quite fast compiles
10:31:58B4gderthus we hand out "complete" builds to the server
10:32:15B4gderand transfer the complete results back
10:32:59B4gdert0mas is the man behind the buildscript going distributed
10:33:49peturmaybe instead of the score, you could show how many servers were used to compile, and have some indicator of the number that's available at the moment...

12:06:56linuxstbmarkun: I don't think that should stop us using it though, but it needs some thought.,
12:07:10markunlinuxstb: without visual feedback it's hard to know which Hue value corresponds to which colour
12:07:54markunlinuxstb: a textual representation would be nice (also for us with color vision problems)
12:09:09linuxstbMaybe on colour displays, the user should be able to switch between different modes (RGB sliders, HSV, textual), and on mono displays (such as the remote), there would be fewer options.
12:09:12Jungti1234__Kick Jungti1234.
12:09:37linuxstbmarkun: Do you have a screenshot of how it looks?
12:10:09markunlinuxstb: currently it's just a hack. You move the RGB sliders (which represent HSV) and you see the result in the colour box
12:10:19linuxstbAlso, on a different subject, does the CSV sdl sim work on freebsd?
12:10:37markunno, it doesn't
12:10:59markunI can make you a patch, maybe you can clean it up and make it work for OSX too?
12:11:37linuxstb was just planning to look at it after you committed it to cvs.

13:21:48linuxstbScoTTie: There's one thing I'm not sure about (maybe others can help) - you've added a BUTTON_HOLD definition. I don't think BUTTON_HOLD events should be treated the same as other buttons - there is a button_hold() function that needs implementing which returns true or false.
13:22:25ScoTTieyour right
13:22:34ScoTTiebut was part of the ipodlinux code
13:22:49ScoTTieit would be safe to remove it, hold works without it.
13:23:40linuxstbOK - I'll remove the "#define BUTTON_HOLD 0x0100" line, and also the "btn |= BUTTON_HOLD" line.
13:24:02linuxstbOr should I just remove the whole if {} around the btn |= BUTTON_HOLD ?
13:24:29ScoTTieremove the whole if
13:24:45ScoTTieand :done
13:25:31linuxstbI'll just test you haven't broken the button handling for other ipods, and then commit it.
13:27:02linuxstbHave you learnt anything more about the differences between the first and second generation minis? Any views about whether they need different builds?
13:27:17ScoTTiethe main difference is in the buttons
13:27:31linuxstbSo your driver only works on first gen minis?
13:27:49ScoTTiei think 2g will use the 4g button code path (or similar)
13:27:59ScoTTiei would assume so
13:28:15ScoTTiei figured you would detect at runtime what version it was
13:28:31ScoTTiebecause if thats the only difference you dont really need 2 builds
13:29:11 Join needleboy [0] (
13:29:13linuxstbLets wait for a 2g owner to come along, and we can decide then.
13:29:54linuxstbIf you turn the hold button on on your mini, do you get a "lock" symbol appearing?
13:30:08ScoTTiethe hold button works without my button code
13:30:14JdGordondoes any1 know if cygwin works from a usb disk?
13:30:47peturI know it can work just by copying the whole tree
13:30:53linuxstbScoTTie: The hardware itself stops the button interrupts when the hold switch is on. I'm asking if Rockbox correctly detects the hold switch status - if it does, you will see a lock symbol in the status bar.
13:30:59peturbut it stores some stuff in the registry
13:31:32ScoTTiei mean, rockbox correctly displays the hold buttons status. even before my patch.
13:31:41linuxstbThat's fine then.
13:31:42peturJdGordon: so you can't run it from two locations on the same pc
13:32:07linuxstbScoTTie: Does USB detection work? Does it reboot to disk mode?
13:32:09JdGordonpetur: i just tryed renameing the tree and it didnt work
13:32:22ScoTTiei wasnt quite sure what to do with that hold code. so i left it as it was in iPL.
13:32:22*JdGordon wants to put cygwin no my h300 so i can dev at uni
13:32:52ScoTTieit doesnt however when you start it with the usb in already
13:33:05linuxstbThat should have been fixed a couple of days ago.
13:33:13linuxstb(it was a general Rockbox bug)
13:33:29ScoTTieok, i havnt tested rockbox since i submitted my patch.
13:33:42peturJdGordon: maybe clear some registry stuff? If you put it on your H3xx it will be 1) even more slow 2) hard to develop and test in parallel...
13:34:47JdGordonpetur: umm.. didnt think of that.. i guess i meant copy it off the disk when i get to uni... but i doubt i would ad to the reg..
13:34:51ScoTTielet me look at the keyboard.c code from iPL
13:35:03ScoTTieill see what codepath the 2g uses
13:35:36linuxstbScoTTie: Patch now committed.

15:22:11Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: Voice support not only doesn't work on iPod, but until you delete the voice file from your player, music stops working too even with all voice menu stuff set to "No".
15:22:58linuxstbI've never looked at it. Firstly, because I don't have any voice files, and secondly, I'm waiting for iriver users to tell me it's working reliably there before I attempt to debug any ipod-specific issues.

15:24:36midkayamiconn, exactly, i wanted to adapt it to C + put it in the clock..
15:24:46Paul_The_NerdThough it seems it's the presence of the .voice file, rather than having it enabled, that messes things up...

16:36:53Paul_The_Nerdripnetuk: What comment are you tlaking about?
16:37:15ripnetuki want a menu in rockbox that will close the menu when an item is selected.
16:37:33ripnetukatm it will run the menu function code, and then keep displaying the menu (until you press menu exit key)
16:38:00ripnetukif my menu function returns true, it will close the menu, but from the source it looks like its designed for that to indicated USB plugged in to the calling code.
16:38:19ripnetukis it un-rockbox-ish to mis-use the return value to force it to close the menu?
16:38:44ripnetuksorry, the comment in menu.h l112
16:38:47Paul_The_Nerdripnetuk: Out of curiosity, what are you doing that should exit the menu when called?
16:39:04LinusNwell, i've been wanting to change the return value from the menu functions for years
16:39:50LinusNa bool is simply not enough nowadays
16:40:27ripnetukyeah, it would be nice to have more return values
16:40:44ripnetukbut that takes time... btw im trying to recode the bookmark screen so it displays a menu
16:41:05ripnetukinstead of the custom load bookmark screen. My ultimate goal is to get bookmark selecting working on the ihp remote
16:41:14ripnetukso i dont have to remove the unit from my pocket to play a bookmark :)
16:43:14ripnetukwould you agree in principle to changing the bookmark screen to a normal menu?
16:43:17LinusNyou have my blessing to extend the return type of the menus
16:43:22LinusNgotta go
16:43:25 Part LinusN
16:44:37*ripnetuk thinks that this is a job for later - menus are used EVERYWHERE
16:44:46ripnetuki will just return true for now :)
16:45:14amiconnI think some menus already do this
16:45:21amiconnCheck e.g. the context menu
16:45:51amiconnBut, I doubt a simple menu is enough for displaying the bookmarks
16:45:55ripnetukwouldnt suprise me... the bool gets back to the run_menu call anyway, and my run_menu certainly doesnt do anythign special for usb..
16:46:15amiconnThere's more than just one action possible with bookmarks, and a bookmark might contain more than one resume point
16:46:22ripnetuki was thinking a menu with options 1-8 for the first 8 resume points,
16:46:37ripnetukoption 9 is more boomkarks (eg the next 8)

16:51:01amiconnYou know how many items are in a bookmark file before building the menu
16:51:14amiconnOf course there has to be a sane upper limit avoid stack overflow
16:51:37ripnetuki didnt know about the builtub_alloca
16:51:53ripnetuki thought there was a strong feeling towards static buffers here?
16:52:28ripnetukanyway, if you reckon its cumersome it probly wont fly anyway
16:53:44amiconnWell if you need more than what fits on the stack, there's only the static buffer left without malloc()
16:54:14amiconnIf the stack is sufficient, you can either use a plain array, or alloca
16:54:19ripnetukyou you prefer a dedicated gui_bookmark or a menu then?
16:54:28linuxstbDoesn't the gui system have a "list" widget, which is based on callbacks to get labels for each item?
16:54:47ripnetukdoes it? /me looks
16:54:54linuxstbI think the file browser uses it.

17:11:42Paul_The_NerdIt does
17:12:20peturalso understood by programs from the windows world?
17:12:33Paul_The_NerdI think the only thing I don't like about it, from reading the description, is that it grabs the audio buffer, so it'd stop playback. I think that's not exactly ideal.
17:12:44webguest74it's true
17:12:58peturdon't want that either
17:13:09webguest74but if you want one good amount of contact it's maybe the way to go
17:13:31webguest74the number of contact was limited before this buffer usage
17:13:46peturno... you can read from disk....
17:13:52linuxstbYou don't need to read every piece of data about every contact into memory - requiring disk accesses during use wouldn't be unreasonable.
17:14:03Paul_The_NerdThat was what I was about to say. Load a list of contact names, then when one is selected, load that one from disk.
17:14:11Paul_The_NerdDon't load full information until an actual contact is chosen.
17:14:31webguest74linuxstb: is that need a lot of code changes?
17:14:59webguest74in regard to the current approach
17:15:08linuxstbWell, it will be more complicated to implement than the current approach.
17:15:10*Paul_The_Nerd wonders idly how many contacts would fit in a 60gb 5G iPod's memory.
17:15:28webguest74linuxstb: Ouch :(
17:15:38webguest74haha :)
17:15:51SlasheriBagder: Hmm, how much the new build system requires transfering files, a few megabytes? I could add my dual xeon 2.4 GHz server with 2/2M connection to that system

17:31:11t0masall others will just do nothing
17:31:56linuxstbWhat's the current number of servers?
17:34:13t0maserm 4
17:34:19t0masjust installed a new one
17:34:26t0masand I'm now busy installing the 5th
17:35:56linuxstbHave you worked out what would be optimum number of servers? Or would 34 be the optimum number?
17:36:29linuxstbI'm guessing the bandwidth on will soon be the bottleneck.
17:36:32t0mashm.. that's a good question
17:36:49t0maswe have 1 server on the same net as the server
17:37:09t0masand ofcourse the main server itself... those 2 take no time for transfere... so they'll do a lot of builds
17:37:33t0masthe ideal number of servers is hard to calculate...
17:38:35Lynx_how long does it take to build everything now?
17:38:49t0mas"34 builds in 526 seconds makes 15 seconds/build"
17:39:23t0mas8 minutes 46 seconds was the last build
17:39:36Lynx_and that is too long?
17:39:43t0masthat is way faster than before
17:39:56t0masbut faster is always better...
17:39:57amiconnI guess some more servers would increase reliability
17:40:00Lynx_ah, no, i meant how long it took before
17:40:20t0masthe last old-system build took over 63 minutes
17:40:29Lynx_ok, that is long
17:41:11peturt0mas: don't tell me, that last long build was for me....

19:17:13Paul_The_Nerd_SuperSnout_: But rockbox.iriver needs to be in the root or in .rockbox for it to be found on boot.
19:17:25_SuperSnout_and someone mentioned to me that I could just make my player boot from doom.iriver as default to save me having to run it before running the game each time (otherwise when running doom.rock it says "incompatable")

19:29:01_SuperSnout_but yeah.. when you run doom.iriver for the first time it creats the folder games/doom.. containing all the .wad files for the game..
19:29:24_SuperSnout_ah yeah.. so i could make that folder hidden right =)
19:29:28linuxstbWhere did you get this doom.iriver from?
19:29:39_SuperSnout_it's on the misticriver boards
19:29:42_SuperSnout_called rockdoom
19:29:51_SuperSnout_amazing =D
19:29:52 Part egotrippen
19:30:04_SuperSnout_what player do you have linux?
19:30:20linuxstbAs far as I know, the latest version of Doom doesn't require a special .iriver file - it will work with a standard rockbox.iriver
19:30:44linuxstb_SuperSnout_: Various - an Archos Recorder, iriver H140 and a couple of ipods
19:30:50 Join petur [0] (
19:31:09miraklinuxstb: I am not sure it's even worse bothering to record compressed audio.

19:31:11_SuperSnout_ok.. cool
19:31:28egotrippensorry about the colors - i couldn't figure out how to turn them off with Trillian
19:31:30egotrippenon the web client now
19:31:45mirakI recorded two shows, and the sound is way better without lossy compression, and also it drains less battery I think
19:32:09linuxstbmirak: Personally I agree, but some people care more about disk space than anything else - they just want a small, low-quality recording of something.
19:32:09_SuperSnout_well with my rockdoom.. which i got of the official misticriver rockdoom thread.. when i start doom.rock while in the standard rockbox boot it says "incompatable device"
19:32:11Paul_The_Nerdmirak: Lossy compression though is helpful if you've got like, less than 100mb free on your player or something
19:32:30t0masyeah, or if you have to record long conversations...
19:32:49mirakPaul_The_Nerd: well in that case I don't mind removing music folders since I already have them :p
19:32:49linuxstb_SuperSnout_: Yes, it won't work with the "official" rockbox.iriver, but you could use the H300 optimised build, which comes with Doom.
19:33:00mirakPaul_The_Nerd: on hard drive
19:33:33_SuperSnout_oh.. so doom.iriver isn't a special .iriver file.. it's just the standard optimised build.. ok
19:33:36linuxstbBut if lossless wavpack recording was available, then I would probably use it instead of wav.
19:33:36mirakPaul_The_Nerd: but well why not yes, who can do more can do less
19:33:40Paul_The_Nerdmirak: I agree, but it still seems like it may as well be an option, since it was with the original FW on iRivers at least.
19:34:01_SuperSnout_i've changed doom.iriver to be called rockbox.iriver and deleted the old one so i should be all set right?
19:34:02***Alert Mode OFF
19:34:04mirakPaul_The_Nerd: yep. it could be interesting for internal mic recording
19:34:06Paul_The_Nerd_SuperSnout_: Really, it's an older build from before the doom patch was working properly
19:34:23mirakPaul_The_Nerd: you don't need quality for that.
19:34:27Paul_The_Nerd_SuperSnout_: You should just get the newest optimized build, which should include doom, and not require you to switch.
19:34:50miraklinuxstb: I would try to see wich one drains less battery.
19:34:51Paul_The_Nerdmirak: Yeah, I use the internal mic to take notes to myself, when I'm brainstorming for writing while I'm out. Just voice.
19:35:01_SuperSnout_well isn't doom.iriver the new optimized build? it came with doom.rock.. =S
19:35:15linuxstb_SuperSnout_: I agree with Paul_The_Nerd - delete the rockbox.iriver, the doom.iriver, the doom.rock, and your .rockbox folder, and then just install the latest version of the h300 optimised build.
19:35:17miraklinuxstb: in fact there is not that much disk spins when recording lossless
19:35:25 Join IcyStorM [0] (
19:35:27_SuperSnout_if i'm booting with doom.iriver i shouldn't have to switch right/
19:35:52mirakPaul_The_Nerd: yes, for that usage, little drive usage can lead to better reactivity
19:36:12linuxstb_SuperSnout_: The problem will be that all the other plugins (.rock files) will probably be compiled to work with your rockbox.iriver
19:36:39linuxstbAnd your doom.rock will be compiled to work with your doom.iriver.
19:36:42 Part IcyStorM
19:37:01nobeliumdo you guys recommend the cache dir option?
19:37:03linuxstbBut if you get the optimised build, it will come with a single rockbox.iriver, and both the existing plugins, and Doom will work with that.
19:37:09nobeliumwhat are the main disadvantages? besides slower boot time
19:37:34_SuperSnout_where is this optimised build?
19:37:47linuxstbOn the forums - you won't be able to miss it...
19:38:06peturnobelium: dircache is recommended
19:38:23peturless hdd spinning when browsing for files
19:38:30nobeliumhey, wrong link
19:38:36linuxstbnobelium: The dircache will use more memory (meaning less audio can be buffered), but that is offset by the fact that the disk spins up less during browsing...
19:38:58nobeliumhow will it affect updates to dirs?
19:39:02egotrippenanyone else notice the optimized build acting a little slower than the regular daily build?
19:39:21peturI'm not surprised
19:39:35peturit's not optimized, it's experimental
19:39:47peturand loads of gui stuff
19:40:02nobeliumI'm gonna try and do a stripped down version
19:40:04egotrippeni stick to daily for the most part, too many bells and whistles. most of the WPS patches have been committed anyway
19:40:07nobeliumwithout all those games
19:40:29nobeliumit has some good ones, but dap's weren't made for game player
19:40:43nobeliumkeys will loose durability in some weeks
19:40:45Paul_The_Nerdnobelium: The games won't affect the performance anyway. It's all the other patches.
19:40:59Paul_The_Nerdnobelium: All they affect is the size of the .zip you're downloading.
19:41:04nobeliumit still has to load like 30+ plugins
19:41:10nobeliumand read their .cfg files
19:41:15nobeliumand check the proper paths
19:41:58nobeliumbut it has some nice features thought, like cover art
19:42:15Paul_The_NerdThe plugins aren't really loaded until you load them, I thought.
19:42:25egotrippenit's annoying though, because a bunch of WPSs get made and then the code changes
19:42:35_SuperSnout_linux: all i see is the rockbox optimised dicussion thread.. no links..
19:42:47egotrippensnout: it's a stick
19:42:50nobeliumYes, that is truth, but rockbox has to read their cfg entry to list them under "Browse Plugins"
19:43:05nobeliumthat's the latest version
19:43:18nobeliumPaul_The_Nerd, should I translate id: LANG_ID3_TRACKNUM?
19:43:25linuxstbNo - the "browse plugins" option just reads the list of .rock files in the .rockbox/rocks/ directory.
19:43:26Mikachuwhat cfg entry?
19:43:37 Join webguest74 [0] (
19:43:56nobeliumah alright..I guess that it doesn't affect perforamance as much as I thought

19:52:19linuxstbPaul_The_Nerd: I thought rockboy worked OK on the Archos players?
19:53:00Paul_The_NerdIt's just the colors
19:53:07Paul_The_NerdIt needs a betoh()
19:53:20Paul_The_NerdSince the archos are grayscale, it's probably not as noticeable.
19:53:27Paul_The_NerdOr something?
19:53:49linuxstbThat's not really an endian problem - it's just different LCD framebuffer formats. The video ipod is the same as the H300, and 4g Color/Nano are byte-swapped.
19:53:52Paul_The_NerdThere's screenshots of it in the forum. I'm *guessing* it's endianness at least

19:54:07Paul_The_NerdOr that.
19:54:18linuxstbBut yes - that seems the problem.

19:57:49egotrippensnout: is that the daily, or the optimized
19:58:18SuperSnouti tried to open some picture called h300opt100.jpg which came with the optimized build.. and it said unsupported -4
19:58:50SuperSnoutwhat's the difference between the daily build and optimized?
19:59:10egotrippenthere's a pretty big difference
19:59:24linuxstbPaul_The_Nerd: I'm trying to understand it now - it's the code in lcd.c....
19:59:51egotrippenthose are the patches and extras supplied with the 'Optimized'
20:00:00SuperSnoutok.. and can you think of a reason why it's said "unsupported -4" and made my player crash?
20:00:01egotrippeni'm not sure which daily the latest version was built off of
20:00:08Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: Y'know, I bet if I'd just bothered to go look, I would've guessed to check that file. I should probably not be so lazy.
20:00:26egotrippeni forget if and when JPEG support was added
20:00:45SuperSnoutbut that jpeg file came with the optimized build!
20:00:46egotrippenit's possible that the daily it was built off of didn't have JPEG support
20:01:05SuperSnoutnow i have to find something thin and pointy =(
20:01:11safetydanegotrippen, how much testing have you done of your patch?
20:01:26egotrippeni've been using it for over a month now
20:01:32egotrippenit's a single line of code
20:01:36Paul_The_NerdSuperSnout: The "optimized" build isn't really "optimized" so much as experimental. Expect unexpected and unforseen behaviour.
20:01:56SuperSnouti don't want that =(
20:01:59SuperSnouti want safe =)
20:02:02safetydanegotrippen, yeah but files starting with . are special and I'm wondering about unforseen consequences
20:02:15egotrippenit doesn't affect those starting with '.'
20:02:36egotrippenall it does, is when you set view to 'supported,' it displays those with more than one .

20:02:44egotrippenregular dotfiles remain hidden

20:03:14safetydanwhich is my other concern
20:03:38egotrippenso... who should i talk to? it's not very important, i guess
20:03:56egotrippenthere's only gonna be a handful of albums or whatever that begin with elipses
20:04:21safetydanIt's probably friendlier to the user to allow elipses at the start of names

20:06:28Paul_The_NerdSuperSnout: If you want a stable build, check out the CVS source, apply the doom patch, and compile. That works for me. :-P

20:45:38 Nick skwad-away is now known as skwad (
20:45:40SuperSnouti'm a bit confused about how to set up doom on the optimized =(
20:45:53nobeliumit's really easy
20:46:00nobeliumget the doom1.wad and place it under \Doom
20:46:06nobeliumgo to Browsw Plugins -> Doom
20:46:18SuperSnoutnice =)
20:47:20SuperSnoutcan i hide it?
20:47:31skwadyou like hiding things ^^
20:47:37egotrippenyeah, really
20:47:42SuperSnoutit's true..
20:47:48SuperSnouti don't like the clutter =)
20:47:51safetydanSuperSnout, you probably can't hide anything that the plugins use
20:47:56SuperSnoutwhy should you see things if you don't need to use them...
20:48:31skwadthen you should hide many things in your life ^^
20:48:44linuxstbIt shouldn't cause a problem if you set the "hidden" attribute on the /doom folder - but you can't move it.
20:49:59SuperSnoutoh.. maybe it's ok if you only hide the folder and not the files inside..
20:50:21SuperSnoutthis is really strange... rockdoom has different controls in optimised
20:51:14skwadis the optimized version open source ?
20:51:37Paul_The_Nerdskwad: It kinda has to be, because of the GPL.
20:51:54SuperSnoutthe thing is.. the .wad file is the same.. but the controls are different
20:51:57SuperSnouti'm confused
20:51:57skwadI don't understand why he does not all this work for rockbox :S
20:52:09Paul_The_NerdSuperSnout: the controls are based on the executable, not the wad.
20:52:18nobeliumI think he has a point on that
20:52:20egotrippenthe .wad is just the level
20:52:29SuperSnoutdo you know if there's strafe?
20:52:30Paul_The_Nerdskwad: Those are all just patches he's collected. Not all of them have even been submitted to the patch tracker.
20:52:32nobeliumwhy cluttering rockbox stuff with non-basic things?
20:52:40nobeliumrockbox concentrates on vital functions
20:52:46nobeliumrather then small plugins/optimizations
20:52:47amiconnGah, ccache doesn't help anything in cygwin, it even slows down compilation
20:53:04nobeliumI wouldn't like the rockbox team worried about getting doom working on h3xx
20:53:05Paul_The_Nerdnobelium: Many of those could be included in Rockbox if they'd just submit them to the patch tracker, and make sure they fit the guidelines in CONTRIBUTING
20:53:09aegraywhats the fastest/best mp3 codec you guys have used?
20:53:10skwadyeah but album art would be nice
20:53:30*amiconn removes ccache again
20:53:32egotrippenskwad: i'm sure album art will be committed eventually
20:53:33nobeliumyes, I guess that would be the optimum option for sure
20:53:34Paul_The_NerdDoom is even on the patch tracker, but it's still got a lot of cleanup work to go.
20:53:47Paul_The_NerdBut things like Bubbles haven't even been submitted for some reason
20:53:49egotrippenbut a lot of the things in the H300 Optimized are just extra
20:53:57SuperSnoutso does anyone know if there's strafe in rockdoom?
20:54:12LinusNalso, many of the patches in the "optimized" build are just half-baked solutions tailored for the h300 platform
20:54:15Paul_The_NerdSuperSnout: I don't believe so.
20:54:17amiconnh120 target, w/o ccache 6min, first ccache build 9min, next ccache build 7 min
20:54:33LinusNamiconn: what a downer :-(
20:54:52skwadnobelium: I understand for Doom, because the goal is not games, but I find things like album art interesting
20:54:52t0masmaybe cygwin takes to much overhead to start ccache?
20:54:59nobeliumyes, me too
20:55:01nobeliumI agree on that
20:55:13egotrippenalbum art's gonna be committed eventually
20:55:29skwadyep I saw you already said it :-)
20:55:44egotrippenmost of the WPS things were on the optimized first, because they don't check them like the devs do
20:56:24egotrippenthe bitmap progress bars, an early color hack, and the 24bit bitmaps were on optimized a couple days to a week before the dialy build picked 'em up
20:56:55skwadso the normal rockbox can make them better ^^
20:57:12egotrippenthe normal rockbox makes them more stable
20:57:18egotrippenit's got stricter requirements on code
20:57:21webguest37'Optimized' is really a misnomer...should be more like 'Experimental, Unstable & Potentially Harmful'
20:57:25SuperSnoutis there any way to find out what the controls are for rockdoom?
20:57:30SuperSnoutand how to strafe..
20:57:53Mikachutry all buttons
20:57:57skwadjust test the controls supersnout, or then download the source and look in the doom file
20:58:05nobelium1552/3000 :|
20:58:11Mikachunobelium: what are you doing?
20:58:21nobeliumtranslating to portuguese
20:58:28egotrippeni wouldn't say potentially harmful... they're not messing with the bootloader or anything
20:58:29nobeliumfrom scratch
20:58:35egotrippenbut otherwise, i agree
20:58:50Paul_The_NerdSuperSnout: You can't really strafe, I believe.
20:59:02SuperSnoutthat's annoying..
20:59:09SuperSnoutis there any way to change the controls?
20:59:15skwadin the source
20:59:17webguest37I few weeks back they applied a power management patch that was bordering on dangerous from what I understand...totally untested and experimental
20:59:28SuperSnoutit would be much nicer if navi was shoot rather that up being shoot..
20:59:32egotrippenah, oh yeah
20:59:34egotrippenforgot about that
21:00:04nobeliumI actually use the Opt. Version
21:00:15nobeliumbut yes, they change some "critical" stuff
21:00:21egotrippennot all the patches say how complete they are on their pages
21:00:31Paul_The_NerdSuperSnout: As he said, you can make all the changes to the controls you want if you compile your own copy.
21:00:42 Quit damaki_ (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
21:00:42egotrippenbut yeah, i'd be wary of power management stuff that's not committed
21:00:59webguest37The album art is tempting however, hopefully it'll make cvs in the near future
21:01:22egotrippenyou'd be better served patching CVS yourself, IMO
21:01:32 Nick SuperSnout is now known as SuperSnout|AWAY (
21:01:37egotrippenif nothing else, i don't like the navi button turning the screen on on first press
21:02:17Paul_The_NerdYeah, I have my own personal "optimized" build for iPod
21:02:19webguest37But with album art in particular, I would prefer not to go through the hassle of setting everything up according to the patch and then have specs change before it gets committed
21:02:38egotrippeni changed by gwps.h button mappings and did a little filetree patch, just using CVS
21:02:41egotrippengood point
21:02:46Paul_The_NerdBut I'm not about to go pile every patch on it or anything. No album art, just things that I really felt make a big difference to my using it. And if they prove unstable, then bye.
21:03:08egotrippenchanged my^
21:04:31egotrippeni just stopped changing my own colors a little while ago. with backdrops and 24bit WPSs it's not really necessary
21:04:37egotrippenand there's the committed color changer now too
21:05:27egotrippenthat's another thing the optimized had for a long time before CVS, but it just had a couple presets to cycle through. the fully user-changeable is better
21:05:48SuperSnout|AWAYcompiling my own version of rockdooms sounds complicated
21:05:53 Nick SuperSnout|AWAY is now known as SuperSnout (
21:06:10SuperSnoutis there anywhere i can just find out the controls?
21:06:21egotrippenask people who use it more than we do
21:06:31Mikachudidn't you get some hints already?
21:07:37SuperSnouthow would i compile my own version of rockdoom then?
21:07:51SuperSnoutwhere would i find the file that has the controls settings?
21:07:54egotrippentry to get your hands on the Rockbox Devkit
21:07:59egotrippeni'm not sure if it's still available
21:08:03SuperSnoutyou have to use a kit?
21:08:13egotrippenit's just a program
21:08:17SuperSnoutyou can't just edit a few values in notepad? =)
21:08:38egotrippenbut then to change that notepad thing into code, you need the devkit
21:08:38Paul_The_NerdSupersnout: Edit the values then you'd still have to compile it after.
21:08:53egotrippenit's small and fairly easy to use, if you can still find it
21:08:57Paul_The_NerdThe file is i_video.c.
21:09:15egotrippenif not, you'll have to spend an hour or so setting up Cygwin... it's a hassle, but a lot more powerful once it's done
21:09:55egotrippeni just switched over the other day to get the simulator working. if you deal with patches a lot, it's necessary
21:09:59SuperSnoutwhat is compiling anyway?
21:10:02Paul_The_Nerdegotrippen: It's not really a hassle to set up cygwin any more, since you just select packages. Don't even have to make crosscompilers.
21:10:06SuperSnoutand how do you do it?
21:10:29egotrippenpaul_the_nerd: is still took me an hour or two. one download messed up towards the end
21:10:42egotrippenit's not really hard, but it takes time
21:11:00Paul_The_Nerdegotrippen: Fair enough. Believe me, before the cygwin packages worked, it took a little bit longer, and had quite a bit more potential for typos.

21:22:24safetydangui_syncsplash is probably your best bet

21:22:45SuperSnoutdo you think there's any way of finding out what my rockdoom version is?
21:23:02safetydannote gui_syncsplash does actually take parameters, I was just too lazy to type them
21:23:10Paul_The_NerdSuperSnout: Check the Optimized thread and see what version they say they're using.
21:23:32webguest31yea, i figured :)
21:24:22Dr_Spoonthe correct colours - but the pixels are all in the wrong places
21:25:20Paul_The_NerdDr_Spoon: Like, shifted or what?
21:26:24Dr_Spoonmaybe shifted - it seems to just be random
21:26:39linuxstbHow are you viewing the bmp files?
21:27:17Dr_Spoonwhat happens if you put the wrong size in the function call, maybe i've done that
21:27:36linuxstbYou need to explain in more detail what you are doing.

21:30:48egotrippenyou need that diff
21:30:49egotrippenand this
21:30:56Dr_Spoonno - i saved differrent names and edited the correct SOURCES file to include them on 160x128 lcds
21:31:01egotrippenbut you can't really do anything until you get cygwin working
21:31:29MikachuSuperSnout: before you get ahead of yourself, are there any free buttons you could use for strafing?
21:31:48SuperSnouti've found someone elses button map idea..

21:36:21egotrippenyeah, i don't do much with plugins

21:37:36SuperSnoutthe diff thing..
21:37:45egotrippenah, right

21:50:13SuperSnoutjust click on those 2 skips?

21:50:50Cassandrasafetydan, erm ... 4 and counting.
21:50:55SuperSnouthow do i know what the current version number is?
21:50:57egotrippenonly click the skips next to the ones it says you need

21:56:33egotrippencygwin will take a while to get set up, anyway
21:56:36Dr_Spoonwhat about a way of only including only wps made for the target LCD in the build system?
21:56:38Paul_The_NerdCassandra: I think that there should be the option to set a background color in the WPS, and if you have that line set, the browser background doesn't carry over.
21:56:38SuperSnoutot HAS kept all the connections =)
21:56:46egotrippenhas it? cool
21:56:56SuperSnout*selections =S
21:57:01Paul_The_NerdCassandra: So, if there's an %X or a %<backgroundcolorthingy> it doesn't carry over. If neither of those, it does.
21:57:10Paul_The_NerdThat way, if someone DOES make a background-agnostic WPS, it can still work
21:57:31linuxstbWe should at least have global bg/fg colour tags for the wps.
21:57:34Paul_The_NerdIt seems WPSes shouldn't be restricted to the same BG and FG colors are your menu anyway
21:57:35SuperSnoutis there someone who could help me once egotrippen has gone?
21:58:01linuxstbI mean global, as opposed to different lines of text being different colours.
21:58:02egotrippeni think the compile guide will take you most of the way
21:58:23Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: Yeah, I figured that. It was continuing my thread, rather than responding to you.
21:58:33SuperSnoutokay.. but how will i find what i need to change?

21:59:32SuperSnoutokay... what is applying the diff anyway?
21:59:45SuperSnoutwould the diff change the controls?
21:59:54egotrippena .diff is a list of changes to the CVS
22:00:02egotrippenno, but you need it to make DOOM run
22:00:15SuperSnoutand putting it into the rockbox folder and starting up rockbox will change the controls..
22:00:28egotrippenno, hold on
22:00:35Paul_The_NerdOkay, we need *5* 0-score builds. Just 5.
22:00:47egotrippenCygwin can download the latest bleeding edge build
22:00:56SuperSnoutbuild of what?
22:01:03egotrippenof Rockbox
22:01:13egotrippenonce that's done, you apply the .diff so DOOM can run
22:01:22egotrippenthen you edit the DOOM source to get the controls how you want
22:01:42SuperSnoutbut why would i need to download rockbox?
22:02:02SuperSnoutwow.. cygwin is going to take soooo long to download..
22:02:21 Join solexx_ [0] (
22:02:21egotrippenwell... because i don't know how to compile a plugin outside the context of compiling rockbox
22:02:43egotrippeneither way you'll need Cygwin, downloading the CVS is easy/quick
22:03:11nobeliumwhere do I change to UTF?
22:03:13nobeliumcan't find
22:03:19egotrippenif you still want to use the optimized, you should be able to just bring the doom.rock or whatever it's called from the finished product, and not the entire build
22:03:44CassandraPaul_The_Nerd, the thing is that changing the WPS resets your background any way. (It has to because otherwise you'll get weird effects from all those Winamp style skins.)
22:03:52egotrippenbut i'd apply the .diff anyway, because if there's a conflict it won't compile at all
22:03:58SuperSnouti'm using optimized now...
22:04:12SuperSnoutoh dear.. i'm running out of space on the drive!!! ='(
22:04:19CassandraGiven that, it probably makes sense to have the WPS background and browser background totally separate.
22:04:27SuperSnoutthis is so tricky
22:04:28 Quit webguest74 ("CGI:IRC")
22:04:33egotrippenyeah, it's a pain
22:04:45egotrippenbut once Cygwin is in, it gets really easy to apply patches
22:04:53CassandraAnything else is probably too confusing, nifty though the idea of being able to make a "background agnostic" wps was.
22:04:57SuperSnoutok.. that's good to know
22:04:59egotrippenyou can make your own personal Optimized build that maybe isn't so buggy
22:05:09nobeliumegotrippen, can you tell me where to change to UTF?
22:05:13nobeliumcan't find that option
22:05:26egotrippennope, don't know enough about that
22:05:27SuperSnoutwould i need to know some kind of programming code to patch things?

22:05:31Paul_The_NerdCassandra: Fine by me honestly. I just like getting to say the word "agnostic" any change I get. It's fun.
22:05:42safetydanhrmm... using the plugin buffer for file copies did not make as much difference as I'd hoped
22:05:47egotrippensnout, you need to know code to apply your own patches
22:05:55egotrippeni mean, write your own patches
22:06:08CassandraPaul_The_Nerd, eschaton is also good. Haven't figured out how to tie that one into Rockbox yet.
22:06:10egotrippenbut to apply patches off the patch tracker, you just need to know how .diff files work
22:06:20egotrippenwhich you're gonna learn today, if things go right
22:06:38SuperSnoutoh.. so is there a file that changes the controls to what i want already?
22:06:48egotrippennot that i've seen
22:06:53CassandraThinking about it, given that we now have support for separate fonts in WPS and browser, I'm inclined to say we ought to have separate background settings too.
22:06:56Dr_Spooni'd recommend getting the optimised source then hacking the included doom - no dual boot required
22:06:58egotrippenbut buttonmappings are pretty straightforward
22:07:14SuperSnoutplease god
22:07:14egotrippenif you can't tell what part of the code is a buttonmapping, someone here should be able to help you easily enough
22:07:19Cassandra(And in recording and FM etc.)
22:07:22SuperSnoutit's so nearly finnished
22:07:29SuperSnoutplease let my disk space last..
22:07:30Paul_The_NerdDr_Spoon: No dual boot is required with the normal source + doom either.
22:07:56egotrippenactually, that's a good call
22:07:56CassandraIt's also not 'optimised'. More 'living on the edge'.
22:07:57Paul_The_Nerdegotrippen: It's in the i_video.c file, a set of #defines partway down.
22:08:04SuperSnouti think it has stopped =(
22:08:11Cassandra(Or even more on the edge that standard Rockbox.)
22:08:15linuxstbCassandra: Yes, it should now be trivial to add more colour settings to Rockbox. Personally, I would quite like to be able to set a different fg/bg colour for the status bar.
22:08:37egotrippenCassandra: yeah, we know it's a misnomer. i don't use it
22:08:42Cassandralinuxstb, the status bar badly needs a complete revamp.
22:08:54linuxstbI know. Wasn't Paprica working on something?
22:09:11Papricaim working on the color calendar
22:09:14CassandraI vaguely remember a patch, but there have been so many ...
22:09:27Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: AFAIK there's a patch on the tracker that loads all the status bar icons from a single .bmp...
22:09:39SuperSnoutyes.. it has frozen and stopped downloading
22:09:41Paul_The_NerdIt's a far cry from full customization though.
22:09:44SuperSnoutit says no package
22:09:50CassandraPaul_The_Nerd, that sounds like a darn good idea.
22:10:03CassandraThen we can have status bars as part of a theme too.
22:10:14Cassandra(Assuming it supports different sizes.)
22:10:21egotrippenugh. sorry snout
22:10:22linuxstbAt the very least, we need to move the icons to external .bmp files, and have different sized built-in icons for the larger LCDs.
22:10:25SuperSnoutwhat do i do?
22:10:31Paul_The_NerdCassandra: I don't know if that patch does.
22:10:37egotrippenif you get it working, use this instead of the CVS source
22:10:49egotrippenjust start tryin again. get a book or something

23:22:16Paul_The_Nerdgodzirra: It should work like that, but it's kinda... the code is old, and not maintained at the moment, so it may have bugs. A replacement is in the works though.
23:22:41stripwaxPaul_The_Nerd - the bitstream format for vorbis was frozen Monday, May 8th 2000. Now, whether this guys encoder is 1.0 compliant or not is a different matter. But something is defintely corrupted.
23:23:33Paul_The_Nerdstripwax: Yeah, if it's corrupted, it's hardly Rockbox's fault for not playing it, even if other players tolerate or accept it. :)
23:23:43Hideospeaking of database, HCl is gone again? :)

23:25:31stripwaxPaul_The_Nerd - yeps. Maybe I should encourage the guy to hop onto #rockbox and tell us about it. Seems the file he sent me is one that other players 'tolerate' but which caused Rockbox to freeze completely. IMO rockbox should not tolerate corrupted audio files, but it should not freeze either.
23:25:55Paul_The_Nerdstripwax: I agree, freezing in *any* situation is not exactly desirable behaviour.
23:26:51jlopreglow : did you test the crossfeed soft ?
23:27:22stripwaxPaul_The_Nerd - yeah. Did you download the track yet? I'll try running it thru the sim and see if I can catch where it dies. Also - what is this tagdb replacement you speak of ? :-)
23:27:31 Join Cassandra [0] (
23:29:08Paul_The_Nerdstripwax: I downloaded the file, but I haven't looked at it. Also, the sim's audio playback isn't necessarily indicative of Rockbox on hardware. *especially* since I hear it's touchy about vorbis at the moment anyway.
23:29:21stripwaxPaul_The_Nerd - ah, oh ..
23:30:00Paul_The_Nerdstripwax: It's called tagcache, and it sounds like it's basically tagdb, but built on-box using rockbox's metadata handlers.
23:30:05stripwaxHrm, well, it doesn't hang..
23:30:39stripwaxPaul_The_Nerd - groovy. I think that's the way it should always be ; I never grokked the offline db update thang
23:30:40CassandraHmmm. I was getting pauses in playback, but it's stopped now.
23:31:24Cassandrasplash() needs fixing for custom colours.
23:32:08Paul_The_Nerdstripwax: The only thing is that it could take a while to generate. I'd still prefer that, though
23:32:13stripwaxPaul_The_Nerd - weird. Rockbox seems to (rightly) do nothing with t his corrupted ogg. The sim plays vorbis back fine afaict :-)
23:32:29stripwaxPaul_The_Nerd - yeah, for a one-off, I'd be ok with that.

23:35:33amiconnstripwax: Building the db on target takes a good while
23:35:54amiconnI tested it on h140, archos recorder and ondio
23:36:46Paul_The_NerdHow long did it take on h140? I mean, I know your library wouldn't reflect how long mine might take, but I'm curious what kinda time range we're talking.
23:37:23Shadowarrior13How's doom progress coming on the iPod?
23:37:56stripwaxamiconn - I'd imagine it would take less time than it takes to run the old Perl tagdb builder on my fileserver (it took over 24 hours .. my fileserver is a 266Mhz NSLU2 ... :-) )
23:38:03Paul_The_NerdShadowarrior13: There's a patch in the tracker, that you can use to play it.
23:38:19Bagderstripwax: shut of the dreaded crc check and it'll fly
23:38:54 Quit petur ("here today, gone tomorrow")
23:38:57stripwaxBagder - I'm sure you're right. I found three bugs within minutes of enabling "Show: ID3 Tags" so turned it all off again and haven't looked back ..
23:39:04amiconnstripwax: huh? The perl thingy took a couple of minutes here... running it directly over the USB-mounted target
23:39:08stripwax(i.e. rockbox hanging or doing insane things)
23:39:16stripwaxamiconn - cool.
23:39:20Paul_The_Nerdstripwax: Yeah, my database ended up with several multiple entries for the same song, and empty entries in other places.
23:39:49Shadowarrior13Paul: I'd have to compile that, which I'm the worst person in the world at, as you should know :P

23:40:58amiconnPaul_The_Nerd: For some reason I don't find the numbers for H140 anymore, but I remember that H140 and recorder weren't too far apart speed-wise. It seems to depend mostly on disk speed access speed
23:41:05Cassandra-Right, I'm getting pauses in playback as the PCM buffer refills.
23:41:23amiconnBuilding a tagcache from ~3200 tracks took ~10 minutes on archos recorder
23:41:32Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: Are we talking "less than an hour" "less than 4 hours" or "less than a day" here?
23:41:51Paul_The_NerdFor *me* at least, that's not so bad.
23:42:04stripwaxamiconn - I think that's acceptable
23:42:16amiconn09:30 until "force tagcache update" finished, and another 30 sec at the next boot
23:42:32Cassandra-amiconn: You have working tagcache code?
23:42:36amiconnWay slower than running the perl or java thingy
23:43:11Cassandra-dircache on the iPod took something scarily small like for 35gigs of music.
23:43:14amiconnCassandra: I have the half-baked beta from Slasheri, with a fix to make it work on alignment-picky targets
23:43:38amiconnI dunno whether there are endianess problems which would hit iPod
23:43:39Cassandra-6 secs
23:43:57Cassandra-I'll hang on till it's more mature, I think.

23:44:17amiconnThis version doesn't do segmented browsing
23:44:34amiconnOther than that it works; didn't test it extensively
23:44:42SuperSnoutpaul_the_nerd: the cygwin installation is going better now =)
23:44:48SuperSnouti think it's nearly done..
23:45:49Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: Segmented browsing?
23:46:00Cassandra-Right. I think that the Video's PCM buffer isn't filling fast enough when the system is under load.
23:46:12 Join Nico_P [0] (
23:46:28Cassandra-(ie the PCM buffer gradually empties after I start watching the audio thread.)
23:46:36amiconnPaul_The_Nerd: For normal directory browsing, it is recommended to set 'max files in dir' fairly low, just high enough for your largest dir.
23:46:42Cassandra-But is OK if I'm just sitting in the dir browser.
23:46:54SuperSnoutpaul_the_nerd: 50%
23:47:17amiconnThis is especially important on archos because of the small RAM
23:47:27Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: Yeah, but what I meant to ask is "what do you mean by segmented"?
23:47:39amiconnHowever, the database 'tracks' list is most likely much longer,
23:47:54amiconnso the tagdb code handles the lists in segments
23:48:06 Join damaki_ [0] (
23:48:08amiconnIt can do this because the tagdb lists are pre-sorted
23:48:20Cassandra-amiconn, ah, Slasheri worked around that. Cool.
23:48:27amiconntagcache doesn't do this yet, so 2 things happen here when browsing by track
23:48:44Cassandra-Oh, he didn't.
23:48:48amiconnCassandra: tag*cache* doesn't do this yet, unlike tagdb
23:48:51SuperSnoutit's quite funny needing a guide to install something =)
23:48:58Cassandra-Erm, I remember having this problem with tagdb.
23:49:20amiconn(1) I get a message 'dir buffer full' (2) I can only browse tracks up to "E"
23:49:37amiconnRather, not up to "E" because the whole list isn't sorted
23:49:53amiconnbut only 500 tracks (my max files setting) out of 3200
23:49:56stripwaxDid anyone ever get a chance to investigate
23:50:06Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: So, were you able to set the files/directory limit beyond the number on your player safely, tagcache would essentially be working? (Not in the "every wish is granted" sense but in the "it doesn't cause things to spontaneously melt, and lets me play files" sense)
23:50:09BagderTotal Physical Source Lines of Code (SLOC) = 239,864

23:52:09SuperSnoutwhen i run it it opens cmd..
23:52:13amiconnI don't need a db for standard operation, for me the db has just two minor purposes:
23:52:23Paul_The_NerdIt should open something that looks similar, but not the same, as cmd.
23:52:27stripwaxSuperSnout - you need to check out the cvs repository next!
23:52:31amiconn(1) Find typos in tags (2) Find dupes I overlooked otherwise
23:52:35SuperSnoutwell yeah.. that's what it's doing =)
23:52:47amiconnOtherwise I prefer file browsing
23:53:01SuperSnoutokay.. the cvs repository... what's that... the source code?
23:53:27Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: I prefer file browsing too, but it'd be nice to have it on there for things like playing by Genre on occasion. Or by age, if that ever gets implemented.
23:53:31*Cassandra- really likes the jackash font on the iPod Video display.
23:53:34SuperSnoutokay.. so just get the same source code as what's running on my player at the moment?

23:54:11SuperSnoutyeah whatever =)
23:54:17stripwaxSuperSnout -
23:54:47*amiconn wonders about this genre thing
23:55:19*stripwax wonders what amiconn is wondering about
23:56:06SuperSnoutok.. i'm downloading the source now.. what next?
23:56:13Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: I have a *lot* of various game soundtracks and/or videogame remixes that are in different scattered folders by artist, in most cases, and are all Genre Game. At the moment I have a "Game" playlist, but it would be neat, were my collection to change, to not have to update the playlist every time.
23:56:21amiconnNone of my tracks are tagged by genre (some are occasionally, but not by me)
23:56:41stripwaxSuperSnout - next, you'll need to "mkdir build", then "cd build", then "../tools/configure"
23:56:57amiconnI don't care; imho it's not possible to sort music in drawers called 'genre' reliably
23:56:57SuperSnoutokay.. =S
23:57:08Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: The only ones of mine that have a genre tag for me are ones like that, where I need an easy way to pull a collection out of the mix. I actually have some genred "Favorites"
23:57:17LinusNi'm having a hard time sorting my music by genre
23:57:34LinusNfor example, when does "Rock" become "hard rock"?
23:57:41Paul_The_NerdYeah, that's a difficult question.
23:57:51LinusNwhen the distortion pedal goes above 8?
23:57:58stripwaxWhen it goes above 11 ;-)
23:58:12JdGordonwosre.. hwne does black become death become hardcore? (metal) ?
23:58:16amiconnI have some very loose "genres" as top-level dirs in order to cut the size of th elists a bit
23:58:17JdGordonand gmorning al
23:58:27LinusNjust sort it all under "Negerpunk"
23:58:38amiconnLinusN: haha!
23:58:49*amiconn remembers a certain ml discussion
23:58:51*Moos is remenbering that long discussion about
23:58:56Mooshehe :)
23:59:00stripwaxYeah, fine-grain genres don't make a lot of sense; "rock" vs "dance" maybe all you need
23:59:00LinusNthat's a true rockbox gem
