#rockbox log for 2006-03-19

00:00:08Paul_The_Nerdafruff23: Doom was not a sidescrolling game.
00:00:15*Paul_The_Nerd wonders what part of "Doom" is confusing.
00:00:16afruff23It's jsut it's ahrd for me to imagine palying doom on anano
00:00:21PhR3aKisn't the processor of the x5 to slow for 3d scenes?
00:00:27afruff23with so little buttons
00:00:39Paul_The_NerdPhr3ak: Doom ran on a 386 at 20mhz.
00:00:51afruff23It's just hard fro me to imagine playing doom on a nano?*
00:01:03leftrightthe web cam appears to be down
00:01:04 Join webguest99 [0] (
00:01:09Paul_The_Nerdafruff23: Yeah, but why on Earth would we call it "Doom" if it was a sidescrolling game?
00:01:31PhR3aKoh yeah sry... for me it was just hard to imagine
00:01:34 Join centos [0] (
00:01:41Zagorleftright: yeah it turned midnight so the crappy software now writes to a new directory... /me fix
00:01:49 Quit webguest99 (Client Quit)
00:01:58leftrightah, thanks
00:01:59PhR3aKbecause the x5 isn't even able to play music and show pictures at the same time...
00:02:02Paul_The_Nerdafruff23: The Nano's screen actually is more pixels than the X5 if I recall
00:02:19Paul_The_NerdPhR3aK: The X5 isn't, or the default firmware isn't? ;-)
00:02:20afruff23that's now what it's ahrd to imagine
00:02:29afruff23It's because of the number of buttons
00:02:50PhR3aKhm... ok, could be a firmware limitation too ;)
00:02:50Paul_The_Nerdafruff23: Turn left/right, move forward, fire, and open, are the only buttons *necessary* to play Doom.
00:02:57centoshow about comitting this one? would be a cool feature for the dailys and extends funtionality of the wps.
00:03:00afruff23change weapon?
00:03:18Paul_The_Nerdafruff23: If you have autoswitch enabled, it's not *necessary* though it is welcome (and that's what the spare button is used for)
00:03:34PhR3aKmaybee prees a botton longer, to swich weapon?
00:03:43afruff23was there jump in doom 1?
00:03:46afruff23I forgot
00:04:06leftrightLinusN, any thoughts on the playlist catalog patch ?
00:04:17Paul_The_NerdPhR3ak: There's already a weapon switch button. I was just listing off the bare minimum. Actually, you could even get away without a move forward by hard-coding forward, though that would be awkward to play
00:04:29LinusNleftright: i haven't given it any more thought
00:04:32*amiconn has scary stuff pending...

00:04:41Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: "Scary"?
00:04:55*Paul_The_Nerd jumps
00:04:56amiconnYes. asm-optimised ata writing...
00:05:03sneakumssign me up!
00:05:20Bgeramiconn any news about the ata timings ?
00:05:26davincihello, back and still downloading packages :)
00:05:31afruff23paul, what about strafing?
00:05:33Paul_The_Nerdafruff23: Not necessary. Many people played the original Doom without even knowing that strafing existed. But it's possible on ones with more buttons than an iPod, and probably will be on the ipod if/when the scrollwheel is used for turning
00:06:06PhR3aKhm, maby a silly thought, but could you be able to listen to music while playing? *would be cool*
00:06:22PhR3aKplaying games
00:06:31Paul_The_NerdMost games yes... Doom is iffy though
00:07:00PhR3aKsry im german... what means "iffy"?
00:07:05Paul_The_NerdNot likely
00:07:18afruff23Wouldn't doom take a lot of space % wise especially for a nano?
00:07:19sharpeisn't actually a word either...
00:07:26sharpeit is.
00:07:27Paul_The_Nerdafruff23: What... 14mb?
00:07:48Paul_The_Nerdsharpe: Wow... It *shouldn't* be a word
00:07:59herz42lostlogic: I just saw you have closed the task about scrollwheel acceleration in the tracker. But I can't live without it :(
00:08:02afruff23Oh, that's small. Does it have all the levels?
00:08:04sharpeon a 4gb nano 14 mb is .34%
00:08:15Paul_The_Nerdafruff23: It uses whatever doom .wad file(s) you already have.
00:08:21herz42I have just loaded the clean cvs build and the wheel is unusable for me...
00:08:24Paul_The_Nerdafruff23: Doom 2 was ~12.9mb if I recall
00:08:31sharpei just so happen to legally have all of the wads, so yay me!
00:09:15Paul_The_Nerdsharpe: I actually own 2 legal copies of each of the doom wads except Doom 1 (I only have one of it... two of final doom though, so it doesn't really matter). They just kept coming with things... like the special edition of Doom 3 on Xbox
00:09:27sharpeheh... yeah...
00:09:31PhR3aKare there any screens of rockbox in action, on a color display?
00:09:53Paul_The_NerdPhR3aK: Have you looked at the WpsGallery wiki page?
00:10:04Paul_The_NerdTry there
00:10:06sharpetowards the bottom
00:10:12PhR3aKk, thx
00:10:17webguest28The /screenshots/ page is a bit outdated some screen dumps of h300
00:10:38sharpewhat should i do...? anyone?
00:11:17webguest28amiconn: Did your commit fix the ATA read bug?
00:11:19sharpei've got nothing to work on :(
00:11:28amiconnwebguest28: yes
00:11:41afruff23so I have to own a copy of doom to put it on the player?
00:11:49lostlogicherz42: and the new stuff I committed isn't good as well?
00:11:49sharpelegally, yes.
00:12:00sharpeunless you use the shareware wads...
00:12:12lostlogicherz42: I'm not comfortable committing acceleration as an always on the way I had it... too 'personal'
00:12:26afruff23would the shareware wads be any different
00:12:29webguest28I believe there are free wads as well
00:12:41Paul_The_Nerdafruff23: Well, the shareware wad is just the first episode
00:12:47sharpeyeh, you'd only get the first episode 'knee deep in the dead'
00:12:59Paul_The_Nerdafruff23: There's also Freedoom, which is a complete replacement for Doom 2.
00:13:22Paul_The_Nerdlostlogic: Curse you for making me edit my personal .diff again. :-P
00:13:35lostlogicPaul_The_Nerd: what diff is that? Does it belong in CVS?
00:13:48 Quit MarcoPolo (Remote closed the connection)
00:13:57Paul_The_Nerdlostlogic: No, it's just my compilation of "patches that I like" that included acceleration.
00:14:21herz42lostlogic: the wheel reacts too fast - and the first movement is to the wrong direction often
00:14:48 Quit Bger ("BitchX: the Cadillac of all clients")
00:14:51leftrightPaul, do you have the multifont patch in your build ?
00:14:52sharpeahah, another idea!
00:15:11sharpewait, nevermind...
00:15:34PhR3aKwhy is there already a screen of an x5 interface? is the developement so far?
00:15:42herz42lostlogic: did you think about including something like my BUTTON_REPEAT feature?
00:15:49Paul_The_Nerdleftright: I have no interest in the multifont patch. Primarily it's Doom, several other game plugins (Blackjack, Bubbles), the USB goes into Apple OS instead of hardware disk for iPod, and I enabled battery state showing.
00:15:51lostlogicherz42: link me
00:16:01sharpeawww... proposed feature : "One image file WPSes (using tar files)"
00:16:08Paul_The_NerdPhr3ak: You can make WPSes for the X5 using the Simulator
00:16:09herz42lostlogic: ??
00:16:11lostlogicoh, I remember

00:17:36hubbelany beta testers for the vmware image?
00:17:49herz42lostlogic: together with acceleration, that worked fine to make it stop at the end of a list
00:17:56PhR3aKnot bad... and is rockbox easy to translate in other languages?
00:18:01crashdhubbel: which vmware image?
00:18:08webguest28hubbel: I'll give it a shot, url?
00:18:16Paul_The_NerdPhr3ak: You might want to check to see if the language you want isn't already done.
00:18:36afruff23what is vmware?
00:18:39PhR3aKwhere can i check this?
00:18:44afruff23is it differnet from firmware
00:18:54crashdafruff23: it's virtualisation software that lets you run other os' at very near full speed
00:18:57lostlogicherz42: ah, yes, lemme see what I can do with that
00:18:57crashdin a different os
00:19:03crashdso like, linux under windows, or vice versa
00:19:12afruff23like virtualPC?
00:19:15hubbelcrashd: its a vmware image with debian with rockbox development environment configured and ready to go..
00:19:21crashdhubbel: ahh, fair dela
00:19:27sharpeor if you want to be cool, linux under windows under linux under qemu.
00:19:44crashdand so on, and so forth
00:19:45PhR3aKgreat, german is already aviable, man im even more excited about rockbox now :)

00:21:11sharpesuggestion for downloadage?

00:22:10sharpei don't know anymore... i just have this comp as the dmz host...
00:22:44lostlogichmph, lied, not a bug, just minor waste of instructions for _non_ wheel button interrupts.

00:30:23penchBagder: why did you leave CategoryFrontpage on ThingsTodo?
00:31:54herz42lostlogic: as the cursor already moves one line when just contacting the wheel, I asume that old_wheel_value is not reset to -1. If the new_wheel_value is not valid if bit30 is zero, wheel_delta will probably be not zero in the elseif case.

00:47:32lostlogicherz42: hadn't checked, but it doesn't surprise, I'm sure I made a mistake in detecting end of scroll.
00:47:48lostlogicwhich would cause it to scroll relative to your last touch when you resume touching
00:48:05herz42yes, that's how it looks
00:48:37herz42although it's somehow more like random direction :)

01:27:05t0masdemand a working player etc
01:27:37XavierGrwell I called them and at last the guy I talked said to me that he will send it back.
01:28:02XavierGrNow Let's see of they fixed it.... (he told me they did, but I ma not sure until I test it)
01:28:29herz42lostlogic: three flaws I have noticed in the charger/usb handling:
01:29:02XavierGrvmware image?
01:29:11herz421. backlight timeout is not updated after usb unplug -> stays on forever if it's static on when powered
01:29:29lostlogicherz42: ah, that_is_ a bug
01:30:07lostlogicherz42: in other news, I think I've made the button stuff do what you basically desire
01:30:10herz422. the debug runtime is not reset for power over usb
01:30:20lostlogicdebug runtime?
01:30:21penchhubbel: why not 7zip?
01:30:38hubbelpench: i like rar
01:30:42herz42yah, some unimportant item in the dev menu
01:31:03penchrar has no full Free implementation :-\
01:31:12penchAnd is inferior to 7zip afaik
01:31:18lostlogicherz42: and 3?

01:31:55B4gder7zip is amazingly good in fact

02:00:04Paul_The_NerdCan I access files in the virtual drive from windows somehow?
02:00:21penchPaul_The_Nerd: says yes
02:00:26penchtowards the bottom
02:00:40pench specifically
02:00:45davincicygwin is starting in /usr/bin. Those folders are the ones in the cygwin directory, right? So I have to place unziped files in the "linux" directory, and not just anywhere on hard drive
02:00:57hubbelPaul_The_Nerd: yep.. there's a file share on the image
02:01:20hubbelPaul_The_Nerd: lookup the ip it has.. and use \\ip\user
02:01:32Paul_The_Nerddavinci: You can place it anywhere. If you put it in C:\RockSrc\ then in Cygwin you could type "cd c:/RockSrc/" (note the /s not \s) and get to it
02:01:43t0masdoes VMware support linux -> windows dir sharing?
02:01:47t0masor only windows -> windows ?
02:02:16Mikachunothing should stop you from installing samba in the linux client
02:02:18hubbelt0mas: do you mean linux -> windows as linux as the virtual or host operating system?
02:02:26davinciWhat means "Go back to C:\Rockbox\ and double click on _RockBox.bat" in ?
02:02:29t0maswindows host, linux guest
02:02:36t0masas that's the system we're putting up now right?
02:02:48pencht0mas: it's just using samba in the guest, nothing vmware related
02:02:54davinciI saw that file only in the DevKit...
02:02:56hubbelt0mas: sure.. if you install vmware tools on linux guest (but it is a little hassle)
02:02:58t0masyes, I know it's like that now
02:03:00t0masthat's why I asked
02:03:12t0masmaybe that might be a good idea to install?

04:40:22sharpepretty sure it's been in the same state since last time afruff23...
04:40:22mnhnhyouhnow it is asking me to
04:40:23mnhnhyouh Make your way back to C:\Rockbox\, open the folder called Home and the folder called guest within that. Move your newly downloaded file into this folder (C:\Rockbox\home\guest)
04:40:44mnhnhyouhbut I dont have that folder, nor is there a file on my pc called _RockBox. bat

04:57:31mnhnhyouhdoesnt mtp also work with non-drm infected files as well? it is a way for you to have programs organise and transfer stuff for you. ums, i think, means drag and drop
04:57:57penchmnhnhyouh: thing is, the programs could do that with ums as well
04:57:59afruff23do WPS support custom ID3V2 fields
04:58:14penchafruff23: no, there's a patch to do it though

04:58:58afruff23The only thing it does better IMO is it streamlines the play count and rating transferring better

04:59:23penchThat's not by virtue of the protocol though. That's just because of the programs

07:55:23kkurbjunhave you looked at what I'm doing in the i_video.c for in the latest code?

07:57:19tayebsomeone clue this guy in, fast
07:57:25kkurbjunI can't just write directly to the lcd's address?
07:58:11LinusNkkurbjun: you *can* but you shouldn't
07:58:41LinusNthen you would have to have special cases for each and every lcd controller
08:00:19LinusNfor example, the x5 lcd driver is very special, and we don't want to duplicate that code in doom
08:00:19kkurbjunlinusn, yeah, I know but the general case stuff is already in there, I was thinking more along the lines of an asm routine for the drawing which is platform specific anyway
08:00:40LinusNthe drawing in the frae buffer?
08:01:32kkurbjunI see, right now I'm already writing directly to the lcd address for the h300, the code is in i_video.c, I should try a time demo without it and see what the difference is sometime

09:58:23lostlogicafruff23: it generally doesn't matter to rockbox what versoin of the retailos the player has... the exception to this is that the H3x0 bootloader doesn't like to work correctly on US versions of the H3x0 firmware.
10:00:34tucozParty Mode. Yiehaa
10:00:58tucozJust what I needed :-)
10:04:12afruff23what is it exactly?
10:05:17Zagorafruff23: it's a mode that disables all the functions that interrupt playback. i.e. next, prev, stop, pause and play.
10:05:32Zagorinstead, when you play a file it is added last to the playlist
10:06:23Zagorthe idea is that you can then leave the player unattended at parties without having people change or inadvertedly stop the music
10:06:52[IDC]Dragonthen you'll need a password lock
10:07:28Zagornah, it's not that kind of a lock.
10:10:12afruff23sorta like party mode for mediamonkey
10:11:08afruff23but how would you unlock it?

10:18:03Febstucoz, regarding the EQ, yes. My thought was to put a brief description in chapter 4 where the other sound settings are discussed, but to keep the details on using the EQ in the "advanced topics" section.

10:48:41paulheuI've been trying to fix this *&@#& font issue
10:48:46midkaypaulheu, what is it?
10:49:24paulheuI installed the multifont patch, when I enter settings teh font always goes back to sysfont
10:49:38paulheuand returns to the set font when you cancel or exit
10:49:55Jungti1234ah,, no
10:49:57paulheuI guess it's an easy fix, but so not know where to find it
10:49:58midkaypaulheu, ah, no idea.. either way i doubt you'll like the patch.. i've heard that the disk spins up each time you enter a new menu because it has to load the font into memory each time..
10:50:02midkayJungti1234, what?
10:50:48midkaypaulheu, i have no idea, but .. have you set the menu/"sys" font to be what you want it to?
10:51:46paulheuYeah.. for now it's all nimbus-12 except for the sysfont of course, but that is where the problem is.. Guess I will take the patch out again for now..

10:52:49ep0chIs it just more or does the iPod scroll wheel work the opposite way in the WPS than in menus? Scrolling clockwise in menus scrolls down, but scrolling clockwise in WPS increases the volume.
10:53:23midkaypaulheu, have you figured out how to set the sys font?
10:53:31safetydanep0ch, I'd say that's deliberate
10:53:35midkayor are you just not sure? it's called multifont, so you must be able to set seperate ones. :)

10:53:59midkayep0ch, would it make sense to scroll backwards to increase the volume?
10:54:20midkayas scrolling forward increases your position in the menus downward, it increases the volume in the WPS..
10:54:31paulheuYeah.. if I choose a system font using 'browse fonts' it will override all with that one, but still nogo..
10:54:44midkaypaulheu, hm, no idea then.

10:55:45ep0chnot increasing your position
10:56:06midkayep0ch, from a coding standpoint, you are increasing your position..
10:56:19midkaye.g. you're 1 item down the menu.. you're two items down.. etc.
10:56:20ep0chyeha i can understand that
10:56:59midkayep0ch, you really think it would make sense to scroll backward to go down a list? or scroll backwards to increase the volume? you can look at it as inconsistent, but it's of course natural.. it works the same exact way in the apple firmware.
10:58:23ep0chto me it would be natural that clockwise in the menu scrolls down (as is), but clockwise in WPS would decrease volume
10:58:44safetydanWhat does the apple firmware do?
10:58:51Kummerapple works like rockbox
10:58:59Kummerep0ch, if it really bothers you, change in apps/gui/gwps.h
10:59:13midkayep0ch, that would be "consistent", but you really think it would make more sense?
10:59:15Kummer#define WPS_INCVOL BUTTON_SCROLL_FWD
10:59:25Kummerswap those, and voila, backwards volume
10:59:38ep0chyeha i'll give it a go

11:21:25midkaybackwards-volume-control users are lusers, but not all lusers are backwards-volume-control users.
11:21:27leftrightsafetydan, thats why I'm hoping something will be committed before the freeze, so that it doesn't die
11:21:36 Quit paulheu ()
11:21:54KummerI copied like three lines from config-ipodvideo.h into config-ipodnano.h and as far as I can tell the battery display works, and it doesn't _seem_ to harm performance or power usage any, so I'm wondering why this isn't in the CVS yet
11:22:22midkayKummer, i think the batteries are different capacities so the display would be inaccurate for the nano..
11:22:44Kummerit's done with voltages that are mapped to percentages
11:23:03Kummerand, the voltages don't seem too far off between the two
11:23:09midkayKummer, maybe voltages are different on the nano as a result of a different capacity battery?
11:23:12midkayi'm not sure either..
11:23:14Kummermore specifically, I noticed some top-end inaccuracy
11:23:25Kummerlike, anything above 90% just displays as 90%
11:23:38safetydanleftright, I doubt it will die since LinusN likes it. It just needs someone motivated enough to do it right.
11:23:43Kummerbut down in the 20-90% range it is a dead ringer to the official firmware's battery indicator
11:24:06KummerI haven't tested below 20% yet because, well, you can only drain the battery so fast playing music :)
11:24:17safetydanKummer, you should talk to Paul_The_Nerd, he's got the battery display working on his nano

13:26:34preglowlostlogic: love your clickwheel work
13:28:09preglowbut ok, i have enabled backlight fading on ipods, do i really have to bump the config block version for all targets to make it work reliably?
13:30:04amiconnWe have no per-target config block version
13:30:29preglowright, so i have to bump the config block version for a one target feature
13:30:37preglowor just ask people to reset their settings
13:31:16HClsounds like that should be changed
13:31:28preglowit'll happen again, that's for sure
13:31:53HClor like, write a system to "upgrade" a config block from an old to a new version
13:32:00preglowto big a bother
13:32:03preglowthere are too many combinations
13:32:22preglowyou can just save your config file and load it
13:32:24preglowthat does that

13:49:39Papricasoundtrack no, but nice graphics IMO
13:49:52*amiconn would prefer to keep the horizontal aspect, at least on archos
13:50:11Papricaamiconn, did you try it on archos?
13:50:20amiconnNo, not yet
13:50:28ZagorPaprica: commit it
13:50:28midkayPaprica, btw.. i tried it for iPod.. for what it's worth i think spinning the block by scrolling the wheel is a bit touchy and annoying..

13:51:56Papricamidkay, do you have another key maping for the ipod?
13:51:59JdGordonany1 know how to get vncserver going when the system boots up? (as a user, not root? )
13:52:09elinenbeZagor: you missed on the schedule "speed up rockboy a bit"
13:52:53midkayPaprica, for the 4G pad.. menu currently "restarts" the game which IMO is a bit useless.. i'd suggest menu being flip the block.. keep everything else the same.. do away with restart for the 4G pad, or make it select+play perhaps?
13:52:55stripwaxJdGordon - isn't there some vncserver config that defines the user it runs as?
13:53:05Zagorelinenbe: :-)
13:53:23JdGordonstripwax: i dunno.. thats why im asking
13:53:51elinenbeZagor, LinusN: what's the current status on the iAudio port?
13:54:07Papricamidkay, i think that i need to hear another comments about the key maping before i change it
13:54:21oboJdGordon: su username -c vncserver in a custom init script?
13:54:44elinenbearen't you moments away from a working X5?
13:54:54midkayPaprica, feel free to wait.. i just think that spinning the block intentionally is a bit hard to get it in the right orientation.. and you tend to spin it unintentionally as well when moving your fingers around to move the block..
13:55:01B4gderelinenbe: from a bootloader, yes
13:55:08B4gderbut not from a rockbox
13:55:28B4gderthe playback code doesn't build on x5 yet for example

13:59:16elinenbewhat is the current status with tagcache?
13:59:53Bgeramiconn: 1)what happened with the ata timings on iriver; 2) should i be "scared" by the ata write ?
14:00:03PapricaMikachu, the current key mapping?
14:00:34safetydanpreglow, I was wondering about that too
14:00:37amiconnBger: You shouldn't be scared. It underwent quite some testing.
14:01:08Bgerand regarding 1) ?
14:01:19amiconnI have the ata timing changes applied locally, but we need to make sure we don't exceed the ata specs, and that means connecting the logic analyser
14:01:28amiconn(which I can't do myself)
14:02:05Bgersome work for linus, then ;)
14:02:44MikachuPaprica, midkay: but my scroll wheel is less sensitive than cvs, if you only turn on every third event or so it should improve a lot
14:03:20midkayMikachu, blast you! ;) Paprica, hm, a potential compromise?.. move "restart" to Select+Play (how often do you need to do that anyway?..) and map Menu as an alternate block flip..

14:04:06safetydanB4gder, was there any talk of a font that will be roughly the same visual size on all targets?
14:04:12Papricamidkay, ok you right
14:04:19safetydanWould make it easier to do a relatively resolution independant interface.
14:04:28safetydanwell... easier
14:04:44midkayPaprica, you lose no functionality, but it just makes playing a bit easier (IMO of course).. the scroll wheel just seems to be too touchy.. spin a little, doesn't move.. spin a bit more, you've done 3 rotations.. try to spin back.. etc

14:07:59Massa1Hi everybody!
14:08:31safetydanI still think we need a font of known size on all targets. What is the eq graphical screen supposed to do if the user's picked a font for the UI that's too large?

14:09:22safetydanpreglow, if you look at the web cam, no one's in front of their screens any more
14:09:23XavierGryeah we must install one in each dev home
14:09:29preglowi wasn't just asking them
14:09:46Zoide7777any news on tagcache or grayscale lib for ipod 4g grayscale?
14:10:03preglowgrayscale lib for ipods is closer now
14:10:04safetydank, things I know are problematic with the eq, 1) precision of coefficient generation, 2) the UI isn't scaled for anything other than h100
14:10:07Massa1I just came back from a trip which lasts a few days - so I'm not really informed on what goes on here! So how is devcon going ;) ? Any big changes?
14:10:08preglowsince timer.c is ready
14:10:15Zoide7777preglow: awesome :)
14:10:20linuxstbPaprica: FWIW, I agree with midkay about the Tetrox button mappings on ipod. Ignore the scrollwheel, use MENU for rotate and forget about restart.
14:10:54XavierGrMassa1: Some nice commits and a release schedule!!
14:11:12midkaylinuxstb, maybe we need an option - there will probably be a bit of disagreement..
14:12:38Massa1I already saw the release schedule and also had a look at the commits - nice stuff :)! Are there any other things which are currently not in "CVS quality" on which the devcon member work behind the scene?
14:13:42midkayhm, one potential solution that may work nice - initally disable the scroll wheel for rotation, but still scan it - if it's spun around once fully at any point (e.g. 4-6 input events?..).. then enable the usage of the wheel for rotation permanently for that session..
14:13:44safetydanasm ata write seems to make no different to file copy speed
14:14:23preglowit should
14:14:24midkayavoids accidental rotation for MENU rotators.. and still very easily allows touchwheel rotators to jump right in without any combinations to enable the wheel or whatever..
14:14:30preglowif you mean locally on the player
14:14:35Massa1BTW, I still have some a small and unimprtant problem with my H300 non LCD-remote (which I hoped to be fixed lately - but it isn't)
14:14:42safetydanpreglow, yeah locally with my cut/copy/paste patch
14:14:50safetydanI think I've hit the drive speed limit
14:15:07preglowsafetydan: and yeah, we need a prescale
14:15:20safetydanafter the read patch it went from 1.8 to 6.4 MByte/s, I guess it can't go faster
14:15:20Hansmaulwurfuh, where can i find the new "party mode"?
14:15:22safetydanpreglow, ah yes
14:15:23Massa1The detection of the remote Hold button does not work 100%...
14:15:30preglowand perhaps bandwidth instead of Q
14:16:05preglowyeah, i need to think of something fancy for that
14:16:06BgerXavierGr i'll look into it tomorrow maybe
14:16:21skwadHansmaulwurf : in the playback settings
14:16:24safetydanwell I have some spare time soon so I should look at making cordic do what we want
14:16:34preglowsafetydan: that would be sweet
14:16:56safetydanI know it can be made to hyperbolic functions along with circular and inverse circular
14:17:05preglowyeah, that would be completely sweet
14:18:06safetydanno promises though, this is stretching my limited recollection of trig from university maths and my fixed point skills :)
14:18:15skwadfor what do you use hyperbolic functions ?
14:18:48safetydanskwad, the equation for the relationship between bandwidth and Q in the equalizer requires sinh

14:24:24midkayif you want a testimonial.. i was playing a game a few nights ago of tetrox.. it was piling up, finally i got the I brick that i really needed, but the scroll wheel flipped it twice when i only wanted it once, and i ran out of time.. it caused me to lose.

14:25:51midkayafter that, about scroll wheel "detection"..
14:26:08Papricaoh no
14:26:14midkayPaprica, <midkay> hm, one potential solution that may work nice - initally disable the scroll wheel for rotation, but still scan it - if it's spun around once fully at any point (e.g. 4-6 input events?..).. then enable the usage of the wheel for rotation permanently for that session..

14:26:29midkaysounds _perfect_ to me..
14:27:15Papricathis is the mapping now
14:27:56midkayPaprica, that sounds fine - but i think detecting the scroll wheel is a better idea if you were up to it.
14:28:20midkayno "accidents" with people who prefer MENU; no combinations/toggles for the wheel preferers.

14:32:34linuxstbMikachu: Don't you think the scroll events are the wrong way round for Tetrox? i.e. rotate right should be scroll forward.
14:32:51midkayPaprica, it sounds very good to me.. i can't imagine any complaints
14:33:16skwadbecause there are some strings with written : press on to accept and off to cancel, but when you dont have on / off buttons ....

14:35:29midkaylinuxstb, right, my goal would be to effectively remove it for us elitist menu rotators.. but still allow it to be used for people who prefer it that way.. you shouldn't notice its presence unless you intend to use it, ideally.
14:35:38Mikachumidkay: 200380 :)
14:35:46Paul_The_NerdWhat's this about removing scroll support?
14:35:53midkayPaul_The_Nerd, for the tetrox plugin..
14:35:56Mikachulinuxstb: no i think they're right
14:36:39Kummeroh hey paul
14:36:42midkayPaul_The_Nerd, currently scrolling left/right rotates the brick.. some seem to prefer it that way, me and linuxstb prefer menu to flip the block.. so i proposed reading the scroll wheel and when a few events from it stack up, enable its usage.. (disabled by default)..
14:36:47safetydanPaul_The_Nerd, do you have battery reading working okay on your nano?
14:37:02Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Ah, okay. I just saw "removes scroll support" and was all thinking of other things.
14:37:11Paul_The_Nerdsafetydan: It seems pretty reliable, yes
14:37:21Mikachulinuxstb: you rotate the finger in the same way the piece rotates..
14:37:22midkayPaul_The_Nerd, ah, i'm also set out to kill scroll support in the menus, yes.. problem? :)
14:37:42preglowwheel is still set to rotate?
14:37:44Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: I was just trying to figure out what you meant by "elitist menu flippers"
14:38:00midkayPaul_The_Nerd, haha. are you a menu flipper or a scroll flipper?
14:38:16safetydanPaul_The_Nerd, do you think the battery settings should be enabled in CVS for nano?
14:38:23Kummerpaul_the_nerd: I pasted some lines from config-ipodvideo.h into config-ipodnano.h in a naive fashion and the battery indicator seems to mostly work
14:38:25Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: If I played, I'd be a menu flipper. I need *one* button to flip, and it needs to rotate 90 degrees in one direction every time.
14:38:29safetydanSomeone was here earlier wonder about that
14:38:31midkayif you're a scroll flipper (rotator).. you're just too pathetic to understand the ways of the menu flippers. :)
14:38:31safetydanthere they are
14:38:47Mikachui really like this way of flipping, i always have trouble with the one-button approach
14:38:48Kummerthere's some very slight inaccuracy in the endpoints near 0% and 100% but othe than that it seems fine
14:38:55midkayPaul_The_Nerd, ah, good. i was worried for a moment. :)
14:39:03Paul_The_Nerdsafetydan: Definitely. There is an issue that at "full" charge, it can show anywhere from 90% to 100%, but I think that's because the reading just isn't very accurate. The apple firmware seems to be the same way
14:39:18Mikachuanother thing is that level 10 is much too easy, but that's for later :)
14:39:26Paul_The_NerdKummer: Yeah, the apple firmware seems pretty inaccurate anyway, though.
14:39:58midkayi can actually vouch for that 90% thing, now that you mention it - i never see my ipod 5G at 100% - even after an overnight charge, apple OS always shows one level down from max..
14:40:26safetydanwell, now we just need to get lostlogic to commit it then :)
14:40:40Paul_The_Nerdsafetydan: Anyway, 5865 *seems* to work fine as a scale factor, though I believe the batteries are like, 330mah so the menu where you set the capacity can't even go that low. ;-)
14:41:10KummerI actively experimented with other scale factors and didn't find any other ones as good as 5865
14:41:35midkayPaul_The_Nerd, 330mah, really?
14:42:02Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Yep. I've even found services that'll replace 'em with a 400.
14:42:07 Quit DJ_Dooms_Day ("Trillian (")
14:42:36midkayPaul_The_Nerd, nice.. i guess that the menu should be changed to go that low, then?
14:42:47linuxstbMikachu: Yes - rotating the wheel clockwise (i.e. forward) should be rotating right... But it rotates left.
14:42:49Kummeryou can measure the increase in battery life under 400 and use that to estimate the capacity of the original battery

14:47:42midkayPaul_The_Nerd, in other words.. lowering it would throw off the displayed value?
14:48:21KummerI raised it all the way up to 3200mAh and the percentages didn't change noticeably
14:48:31Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: I really don't know. I'm not sure what raising and lowering the value in the menus changes, honestly. I think it just changes what it estimates as "Time Remaining" but I'm not sure
14:49:00midkayPaul_The_Nerd, ah, maybe that's right - i know it changes that, but i'm not sure about the displayed value..
14:49:17midkaydisplayed value being icon/%
14:49:27Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: I'm just referring to #define CONFIG_BATTERY BATT_LIPOL1300 in the config-ipodnano file, as a seemingly bad name.
14:50:02Kummernot to mention the ipodbatteryfaq website claims nanos use Li-ion, not polymer
14:50:46midkayPaul_The_Nerd, right, i'm talking about lowering the min limit in the MAH selection screen to select the appropriate value for other batteries (in this case iPods).. but i'll leave it alone for now, since i'm not sure how the system is setup for display and what changing the mah value will do exactly
14:52:09Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Yeah, at the moment it's not a matter of urgency anyway. Since the estimated time remaining is probably way off either way

15:35:36preglowamiconn: insert 'is correct' where makes sense
15:36:06amiconnHmm, not that I know of
15:36:32preglowit's really weird, it seems memset16 is the cause of all the really weird data aborts
15:36:42preglowabort at uie, abort at exception vector, the list goes on
15:37:28amiconnHow could memset16() cause a data abort in UIE()?
15:37:46preglowi think i'll go insanse if i ever know
15:37:53preglowit probably corrupts something
15:37:54amiconnThe only place that uses memset16() is the lcd 16 bit driver
15:38:14amiconnHmm, perhaps
15:38:29preglowand yeah, if i remember correctly, memset16 assumes the pointer is aligned by 2, yes?
15:38:35preglow'cause i don't handle that

16:54:30sharpewow, it's only 11 o'clock here...
16:54:37sharpei'm guessing it returns a value...
16:54:38amiconnmemset returns the start address
16:54:45t0masno, never used that
16:54:53preglow'cause that's the only bug i have that i can find
16:54:53t0masI already have the start value...
16:54:55preglowi don't return that
16:55:06sharpei never realized it returned the start address
16:55:33preglowi just remembered it
16:55:56amiconnpreglow: Since memset16() is our own stuff, we can leave out the return value
16:56:19amiconnmemset() should behave as specified though
16:56:26preglowyeah, but the memset doesn't either
16:56:45preglowand to make it do that, i either have to recode everything to make it traverse memory backwards
16:56:50preglowor stack the address value
16:57:14linuxstbpreglow: A quick grep in apps/ and firmware/ doesn't show anything that uses the return value from memset
16:57:28preglowno, that's what it looked like to me too
16:57:32preglowbut then i'm stumped
16:57:50preglowtest_mem says my memset16 is correct, i can't see any bugs, but yet, it crashes rockbox in the oddest ways

18:00:39preglowi'll just commit it
18:01:01Mikachuis it a simple linear decrease of intensity?
18:01:40Mikachuthe last part when it goes off looks sort of faster
18:01:50 Quit diablo_ipod ()
18:02:06preglowanyone here got a 5g?
18:02:23preglowMikachu: i think it's a simple linear fade, yeah, and we might want to change that
18:02:24Mikachuand i agree there should be a 250ms option at least
18:02:29preglowMikachu: i think apple's fade looks nicer
18:02:33sharpei've a 5g
18:02:46preglowsharpe: would you mind trying that patch for me?
18:02:52sharpeah, sure
18:03:06preglowyou just need to add a #define HAVE_BACKLIGHT_PWM_FADING to config-ipodvideo.h
18:03:10preglowthen you're ready to see if it works
18:03:54preglowlinuxstb: btw, the backlight code for 4g seems to imply that it fades the backlight off, is that so?
18:09:26preglowsharpe: any luck?
18:12:19linuxstbpreglow: Yes, it does fade out.
18:12:36sharpeeh, had to go do something, patching it now :)
18:12:54preglowlinuxstb: what about fade in?
18:13:38preglowso there's no point in making ipod 4g use this code
18:14:30linuxstbI _think_ it's fading in. But very quickly.
18:14:58Mikachupreglow: i agree
18:16:00preglowlinuxstb: tried tweaking the value it uses around?

19:09:58f13hey all, I'm having a bit of trouble getting rockbox on my ipod. (I'm using Linux to do this). The rockbox.bin generated by ipod_fw ends up larger (by 3 megs) than the boot partition itself (and hte bootloader.bin file)
19:10:29vulcanhmmm, no access to a windows system?
19:11:07f13well, not for a while.
19:11:14safetydanafruff23, currently all targets have hardware to handle USB so rockbox doesn't have to do anything yet
19:11:22preglowwhy the hell did my last commit mail contain an attachment?
19:11:56vulcanf13: what ipod do you have?
19:12:05Paul_The_Nerdf13: The rockbox.bin should not be any larger than the original bootpartition.bin that you extracted. It should be somewhat larger than the apple_os.bin that you extracted from bootpartition.bin though
19:12:16MikachuPaprica: 4851

20:37:46preglowis there such a thing as a 32 bit integer wav file?
20:37:54FebsI was thinking about that last night, actually. There is a contributor list at the end of the manual. Perhaps that could list separately the contributors to the manual and the copyright notice could say 'Copyright (c) 2005 by the respective contributors identified on page XX'.

22:21:24linuxstbfelix_net: Then I think it's a Linux problem - if Rockbox started, then that means the disk in your ipod is fine.
22:21:30sharpebut then we can make an elaborate faq and point people to it every time they asked :)
22:21:30YashPhR3aK, ums?
22:21:36felix_netguess its debian
22:21:39sharpeusb mass storage
22:21:56sharpeor universal, depending on who says it
22:22:03PhR3aKyeah means that its handled as an usual hdd
22:22:15linuxstbfelix_net: I sometimes get USB strangeness (I'm using Debian as well) - a reboot is sometimes needed to get USB working again.
22:22:26midkaysharpe, i don't think the dev team would be too happy about having a proprietary extension.. and, you say compression? how would you open it? :)
22:22:32linuxstbpreglow complains about the same thing under Ubuntu IIRC.
22:22:46preglowit's a linux thing
22:22:46felix_netwell, then I'm going to reboot, i'll log back in a few minutes. bbl

22:23:08pregloware we talking about the battery thing?
22:23:19midkaysharpe, what about creating them i mean? viewing them outside of rockbox?
22:23:26YashI'm going to try installing rockbox now ;)
22:23:30MmmmMy suse keeps freezing when I transfer data to my Iriver....very annnoying!
22:23:33YashI hope it doesnt drain the battery out too fast?
22:23:42sharpemmm... we make a utility to package them :)
22:23:59midkaysharpe, fu, that's too complicated. uncompressed zip!! :)
22:24:10preglowahh, right, that
22:24:10sharpewell, we have that then.
22:24:14preglowyeah, that's a linux problem
22:24:18preglowand for me it applies to all usb devices
22:24:56PhR3aK2(Yash2): why should it?
22:25:19YashPhR3aK, I was just wondering, so wanted to clear it in my mind, hehe.. sorry if I offended you
22:25:56linuxstbYash: Yes - shorter battery life is the main disadvantage of Rockbox compared to the Apple firmware. But that can only improve.
22:26:21PhR3aKno i think (i dont really know, ive got no dap with rockbox running)
22:26:34linuxstbBut the way I see it is that 7.5 hours of FLAC playback under Rockbox beats zero hours of FLAC under the Apple firmware.
22:26:43PhR3aKhm but a guy on said that rockbox could improve battery life
22:26:46midkaypreglow, fading woks perfectly on my 5g.. beautiful. :) (if it was your work: nice job!)
22:27:32Yashcool.. I'll install it now
22:27:45sharpewe hath converted another! :)
22:27:50preglowscrew the thanks, send beer!
22:28:00midkaypreglow, even 10 seconds works 100% fine. it looks a little "steppy", but it's fine. :)
22:28:06preglowyeah, it does look steppy
22:28:09preglowat least towards the end
22:28:16preglowbut there's nothing i can do about that
22:28:18midkaypreglow, screw the beer, you need to go to alcoholics anonymous.
22:28:20preglowi think, at least
22:28:20linuxstbOnly 44 million more ipod users to go...
22:28:33preglowmidkay: i'm not particularily anonymous
22:28:45sharpeyeah. you're 'preglow'
22:29:04midkaypreglow, you can be. it's alright!

22:37:23webguest94Hi, I have a question about file sorting
22:38:58webguest94I noticed with my Archos Jokebox Recorder 20 that the software could only sort on the first 42 characters in the filename. So all identifying info−−artist, title, track #−−had to be in those 42 characters. Does Rockbox improve on that?
22:39:12crashdevening chaps
22:40:29tucozwebguest94, I would assume yes, but maybe someone else could confirm?
22:41:14webguest94I just re-ripped my collection and I'd hate to have to truncate everything again to be able to have it in order

22:44:00tucozAnyone know the file-length limit in Rockbox?
22:44:30YashRockbox installed perfect, but I don't see color on the menu, any idea why?
22:45:17linuxstbYou can change the colours in the settings.
22:45:29linuxstbDefault is just black on a very light blue.
22:45:44tucozwebguest94, on the feature comparison chart it says rockbox have 260 chars filename limit
22:45:47linuxstbtucoz: MAX_PATH is 260 bytes
22:45:53Yashtrue, how do i exit sudoku, lol, i'm stuck there
22:46:04linuxstbSHIFT+MENU exits most plugins
22:46:08tucozlinuxstb, thanks. Do you have an answer for webguest94 ?
22:46:24webguest94well, 260 is a bit of an improvement over 42 hehehehe
22:46:28Yashshift + menu? there's no shift on an ipod
22:46:29linuxstbYash: You may want to read this:
22:46:39linuxstb:) Sorry, I mean SELECT (the centre button)
22:46:48webguest94oh I misunderstood
22:46:51Yashgotcha! thanks buddy, i'll read the FAQ
22:47:04linuxstbwebguest94: But yes, Rockbox should use all 260 characters when sorting.
22:47:18Mikachudoes PATH_MAX not include the path to the file too?
22:47:20tucozwebguest94, you should give Rockbox a try either way. Have a look at this page for feature comparison.
22:47:29linuxstbMikachu: Good point...
22:47:44webguest94I saw that one. I'm very interested... was never happy with the Archos software
22:48:16tucozwebguest94, so, it's 260 chars including the path to the file.
22:48:18webguest94I guess, as long as I don't have an insane number of nested directories, I should be fine
22:48:25linuxstbwebguest94: If you have problems with the maximum length of files, you can always compile your own version, and extend the limit.
22:48:49crashdhas anyone had any trouble removing a cygwin install ?

22:50:59webguest94I'm also considering putting in a larger hard drive... anybody try that with Rockbox?
22:51:30linuxstbYes, lots of people have upgraded their hard drive. Rockbox has no problems with them.
22:52:37Mmmmcrashd: when I used windows I used a program called unlocker to delete files...always did the trick!

23:23:21ohrnthe only way I can get into to the original firmware right now it to attach the charger
23:23:29BoD[away]0db is the max volume
23:23:43amiconnohrn: You have to hold Play for some seconds to give the original firmware a chance to see it's pressed
23:23:47BoD[away]is there a way to use another unit ... one with 0 being the lowest volume? :)
23:23:49ohrnit used to work properly before, just hold rec
23:23:52sharpeyeah, everytime the firmware boots up, it and rockbox duel. generally the firmware loses, so that's why it shuts off.
23:23:54ohrnhas anyone else seen this?
