#rockbox log for 2006-08-31

00:00:23BagderI published all my mi4 files and my stumbling efforts
00:00:35Bagderhe came bursting in with answers to all questions ;-)
00:00:39preglowhahah
00:00:44Nico_Pwow... providential man
00:01:35 Join linuxstb_ [0] (i=5343d4aa@gateway/web/cgi-irc/labb.contactor.se/session)
00:01:53Bagdergetting that TEA encryption nailed is in fact quite a feat in my eyes
00:02:05blxthe folder names on my iaudio turns lowercase somehow
00:02:20Bagderblx: it is probably the way your OS shows them
00:02:22 Quit _Veseliq_ (Remote closed the connection)
00:02:30blxBagder, debian gnu/linux
00:02:37Bagder... can be told to do so
00:03:00blxmight be the thing that's wrong..
00:03:12BagderI doubt that
00:03:31bluebrotheris there a way to "reset" the settings in the sim before startup?
00:03:42linuxstb_Would we be able to add the mi4 decryption to our bootloaders - to load original firmwares?
00:04:25bluebrotherah, found it. sector3D.bin
00:04:32Bagderlinuxstb: yes sure
00:04:45linuxstb_blx: I use the option "shortname=mixed" in my fstab entries for vfat disks.
00:04:57blxlinuxstb, thank you
00:05:11Bagdernoauto,owner,user,shortname=mixed
00:05:12Bagderetc
00:06:10blxthere we go
00:06:40barrywardellBagder: what do you think about providing compiled mi4 bootloaders?
00:06:50Bagdersure
00:06:53 Quit lodesi_ (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:07:00blxis x5v_fw.bin a correct name for the image?
00:07:01Bagderwe do the similar for other targets
00:07:17Bagderbarrywardell: see http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/
00:07:32linuxstb_barrywardell: BTW, I now have scramble generating a .mi4 file my Elio accepts. Next will be the 0103 files, then I'll commit.
00:07:38barrywardelloh, cool
00:07:54barrywardelllinuxstb_: nice
00:08:38linuxstb_I'm planning to call the options -mi4v2 and -mi4v3 - can anyone think of anything better?
00:08:48Bagderfine enough for me
00:08:58linuxstb_I'm not sure what's needed for the v3 files yet though - will they all be the same?
00:09:15 Part tucoz ("Leaving")
00:09:15barrywardellBagder: I'll send you mi4 files for the two H10 models. Or you can compile them yourself if you want
00:09:23merbananlinuxstb_: the original bootloader can decrypt the original firmware, just concatenated the rb fw and the original firmware
00:09:52Bagderlinuxstb: yes, they'll be pretty much like v2 but with the dummy DSA as well
00:09:57merbananand then set the plantext lenght to the end of the rb firmware
00:10:22linuxstb_merbanan: OK. But it would be nice if installation just meant renaming pp5020.mi4 to something like "original.mi4" and then copying the Rockbox bootloader as pp5020.mi4.
00:10:32markunBagder: should I integrate the gigabeat firmware scambler with the scramble tool or just leave it as a seperate program?
00:10:42linuxstb_Rather than running any tools to concatenate the bootloader and original firmware.
00:11:04Bagdermarkun: as you wish, I personally like having one tool that does the job but its not really a big issue
00:11:10uskilinuxstb_: hello, it's me again >:) just a quick question, do you think that the MBR of the compactflash card matters ? (the first 512bytes sector)
00:11:41linuxstb_markun: I'll be adding the mi4-building code to a new file (mi4.c) which will be linked to scramble. You could do the same.
00:11:50barrywardelllinuxstb_: that's how I was thinking of loading the original firmware
00:11:51merbananlinuxstb: then you need to either call code in the bootloader or code your own decryptor and add the decryption keys to the rb firmware, or decrypt the original firmware
00:11:53 Quit Kohlrabi ("Quit")
00:12:43barrywardellmerbanan: you can have the original.mi4 be an already decrypted firmware
00:12:59Bagderbut that makes it slightly less conveniant
00:13:05blxok, it worked with the other version of the bootloader.
00:13:22Bagderthe other version?
00:13:36linuxstb_uski: The MBR (first sector) contains the partition table. So in that respect it matters. You could try taking an MBR from the Rockbox wiki (IpodInstallationFromMacOSX page), dd it to your disk, then fix the partition table part using fdisk.
00:13:42barrywardellBagder: true
00:13:54uskilinuxstb_: thanks again

00:14:11BagderI think having a decrypt function with the key built-in a fair idea
00:15:28blxBagder, there was two versions on the X5 dl page
00:15:40Bagderyes, one for X5 and one for X5V
00:16:15 Quit lodesi (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:16:41blxok, that was not very clear
00:17:12Bagderat least it explains why it didn't work ;-)
00:17:40blxyep
00:17:49blxtime to copy lots of music to the player now :)
00:18:07Bagdernah, just play the games ;-)
00:18:12blxhehe
00:18:24blxyou have to download them separatley right?
00:18:35Bagdernope, they come with Rockbox
00:19:05Bagderbut rockbox is separate from the bootloader, if that was what you meant
00:20:13lorijhoBagder: I'll send you the H10.mi4 for the 6GB version
00:20:15Bagderwe miss ipod3g on the devicechart
00:20:31lorijhoBagder: where to ?
00:20:52Bagderdaniel a t rockbox . org
00:21:26lorijhok
00:21:57barrywardellBagder: i just sent you mine too
00:22:27BagderI just noticed
00:24:03stripwaxsup
00:25:23amiconnBagder: Hmm, your new configure makes it look like archos has the most supported targets :)
00:25:50amiconnBut that's in fact not true - the 2 gmini targets aren't really supported :/
00:26:00Bagderwell, targets in configure aren't necessarily "supported"
00:26:05lorijhoBagder: the bootloader is sent.
00:27:15Bagderthe new menu looks a lot less cramped though
00:28:49Bagderlorijho: so what is the exact target file name for the h10 5GB?
00:28:59Bagderseems appropriate to use that

00:30:10BigMacanyone talk to senab on msn messenger?
00:31:15dan_aBagder: If I do "mi4code decrypt -s SKU_E-PP5022.mi4 SKU_E-PP5022.mi4-decrypt ; mi4code build SKU_E-PP5022.mi4-decrypt PP5022.mi4", should PP5022.mi4 be a bootable image?
00:32:24dan_aOh, no, I need to sign it first.
00:32:31barrywardelldan_a: you also need to do mi4code encrypt -pall SKU_E-PP5022.mi4 PP5022.mi4 default
00:32:51barrywardellyou don't need to sign it but the crc has to be right
00:32:58barrywardellencrypt takes care of that
00:33:27barrywardellor maybe you do need to sign it too if its a 010301 version
00:34:01Bagdersign yes
00:34:45dan_aDoes doing a "build" also do an "encrypt"?
00:35:11Bagderno
00:35:14 Quit bluebrother ("Leaving")
00:35:21Bagderbuild, encrypt then sign
00:35:24lorijhoBagder: H10.mi4
00:35:40Bagderlorijho: right, thanks, I noticed you had it that in the tar
00:35:56lorijhoBagder: yep
00:36:02Bagderboth H10 mi4 files are now available here => http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/iriver/
00:36:11lorijhonice
00:36:34belzethx alot
00:36:40barrywardellthanks Bagder. Saves a lot of explanations about how to compile :)
00:36:50lorijhoditto
00:36:58Bagderlet the hoards come
00:37:14stripwaxIs the 64MB patch for ipod 5g in cvs?
00:37:21Bagderno
00:37:28stripwaxokiedoke
00:37:42 Quit Siku ()
00:37:44barrywardelldan_a: using -pall with encrypt leaves the mi4 unencrypted but fixes the crc
00:37:56Bagderstripwax: but linuxstb has expressed an intention of commit
00:38:26stripwaxcool. was just wondering since the tools/configure script has changed and I'm trying to merge in the patch with the changes
00:38:53Bagderthe patch should merge fairly easy
00:39:09Bagderif its the memory-size option version
00:40:34barrywardellmarkun: I've committed my change for the H10. It's very small so should be easy to fix your wmcodec patch
00:40:56stripwaxBagder - ah, that's probably the problem.. let me check out the latest version of the patch...
00:41:34dan_aYay! The re-signed Sansa firmware boots (though I'm sure that's been proved before)
00:42:07Bagderyes ;-)
00:49:01linuxstb_I've just created a .mi4 using the "h10" option to mkmi4.sh, and the only difference apart from the version number is a 0x01 at byte 0x2f - is that all I need to do?
00:49:19linuxstb_^the only difference to the 0102 files
00:49:28Bagderyes
00:49:39Bagderapart from the header number
00:49:48Bagderah you said that
00:50:10linuxstb_Looks like I can now clean up the code and commit then.

01:24:39markunyes
01:24:46linuxstb_thanks.
01:26:30markunis the scramble tool only used for the bootloader?
01:26:51linuxstb_It's used for the main firmware for the Archos devices.

01:27:14markunAnd can I set different output filenames for the bootloader and the firmware?
01:27:17linuxstb_In fact, it's used for everything.
01:27:40linuxstb_The rockbox.iriver etc files are generated using scramble.
01:28:00linuxstb_I'm not sure how to integrate it into configure though.
01:28:20markunWhy would you scramble rockbox.iriver?
01:28:51linuxstb_It just adds a small header - four bytes identifying the model, and a simple checksum.
01:29:29markunaha
01:29:40linuxstb_It's the -add option.
01:35:07linuxstb_barrywardell: Is sound now perfect on the H10 after your GPIOL commit?
01:36:44barrywardelllinuxstb_: pretty much, yes. the cpu can't keep up with peak meters on though
01:37:44Paul_The_NerdThat's pretty much the same as the iPods

01:39:43linuxstb_As Paul_The_Nerd just said - the ipods are exactly the same.
01:40:43linuxstb_BTW, has anyone run the test_fps plugin on the H10 to test LCD update speed? test_fps.c is in CVS, but you need to add it to apps/plugins/SOURCES for it to get compiled.

01:45:58barrywardellwe don't have the blitting yet so it doesn't work
01:46:20barrywardellthe lcd driver needs work in general. it is very minimal
01:47:34***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
01:47:59barrywardellhow do I change the cpu frequency in test_fps?
01:48:29linuxstb_You change it in the debug menu before starting test_fps.
01:48:47barrywardell30MHz: 1/1 19.5 1/4 77.5
01:49:33linuxstb_Almost identical to the ipod Photo - which has a 220x176 LCD.
01:50:12barrywardell24Mhz: 1/1 18.0 1/4 72.5
01:50:24barrywardellroom for optimisation then
01:50:49linuxstb_How about 75MHz?
01:51:22barrywardelllol.i only have down on the scrollpad.i'll have to recompile to try it

01:59:56billytwowillyhey, how does rockbox get around the licencing issues with mp3? you guys obviously didn't buy a licence...
02:00
02:00:11zewhat would they need a license for?
02:00:18blxdecoding
02:00:21billytwowillyis the mp3 patent expired/not valid where the server is hosted?
02:00:28zeyou think the various 3rd-party implimentation free decoders have licenses?
02:00:35billytwowillynope.
02:00:37barrywardellthe lcd is fairly glitchy too
02:00:40zedo you think they need to?
02:00:46billytwowillyI'm not sure how they get around taht either.
02:00:54blxze, in countries with softwae patents, yes.
02:00:58billytwowillywell, under U.S law they would, and probably under Canadian law.
02:00:59zewell afaik
02:01:04barrywardelleg. the statusbar is at the bottom!
02:01:05zethey're non-commercial
02:01:08zewhich might not count for anything
02:01:16billytwowillyoh yah. ok, I forgot about that. most of europe doesn't have software patents.
02:01:22 Quit ben_ (Remote closed the connection)
02:01:22blxze, most people ignore the decoding bit of the patent afaik.
02:01:23zebut then they're also generally developed in countries that don't care
02:01:29blxbut legally it is infrnging
02:02:04zehonestly i'm not sure if independant implimentations are really covered by the patent
02:02:11zeianal, and i don't really know
02:02:21billytwowillyin the U.S, if you can play mp3 you own someone money.
02:02:24Paul_The_Nerdbillytwowilly: If I recall, the possessors of the patent have even explicitly said that they don't intend to pursue "free" decoders for MP3.
02:02:24blxsome gnu/linux distributions have removed mp3 support
02:02:41Paul_The_NerdThere's no legal basis to it, so they still *can* but they've explicitly stated that they don't intend to, if I recall.
02:02:44zebut if there's no trace of the reference implimentation
02:02:50billytwowillyI don't care really. I was just curious. the lack of software patents in europe satisfied my curiousity.
02:02:51zeand especially if it uses different methods to accomplish the same goal
02:03:00zethen i dunno if it could be covered by the patent
02:03:09zeof course as general of patents as they give away these days, it could be
02:03:25billytwowillyyep. most patents are lame.
02:03:51zei'm totally for patents in their original intent
02:03:57zeas an option to an inventor/innovator
02:04:04zebut shits just ridiculous these days
02:04:09zeand totally out of the spirit of the idea
02:04:47zebut yeah, anyway
02:04:48billytwowillyI'm totally for copyright in its original sense as well. i.e 14 year time period with sever limitations on just what can be copyrighted
02:04:55zeyeah
02:05:19zeand fair use
02:05:40billytwowillyI wouldn't even care too much about fair use if the term was short enough.
02:05:44billytwowillyi.e 5 years or less.
02:05:55zei would

02:11:28billytwowillyno idea. google it.
02:11:38BigMacalready have
02:11:44zebillytwowilly: where is it all? :p
02:12:05zebillytwowilly: how do i seperate it from all the tons and tons of horrid junk out there drowning it out?
02:12:58billytwowillyhmm. using filetype:snc only brings up www.ilyrics.net
02:13:15BigMacthat blows
02:13:30BigMacthen there is no point in the snc viewer
02:13:43amiconnThe h10 lcd frame rates are indeed ouch
02:13:54amiconn(as are the rates on the colour ipods except nano)
02:13:57billytwowillythere has to be more out there. I dunno, I don't care about lyrics though, so I have little knowledge.
02:14:13amiconnMy observation is that things start to get smooth around 50..60fps
02:14:27 Nick BigMac is now known as Bigmac|shower (n=dummeska@64-252-96-54.adsl.snet.net)
02:14:40amiconnThat's the goal - preferably achieved w/o boosting
02:15:20amiconnThat's also why I settled for ~60fps for the iriver remote lcd frame rate with the ticking fix enabled
02:15:31zei always just google for lyrics, personally
02:15:42zei've never found any single lyric site that was always 100% complete and correct
02:15:54zeand honestly most of them have the exact same set of lyrics with the same errors too
02:17:27 Join XavierGr [0] (n=xavier@ppp175-13.adsl.forthnet.gr)
02:17:45zeand googling you might stumble upon an artist-specific site by someone who cares about the accuracy of those particular lyrics and might even have them transcribed from an insert (and maybe that alongside a "corrected" version of whats actually being sung, where it differs from the insert)

02:22:22billytwowillyso does bagder ever hang out here?
02:24:42amiconnbarrywardell: ~+30%, not bad for a relatively simple improvement you can do in C
02:25:13barrywardelli'm sure there's more potential in there
02:25:36amiconnOn some other targets we use assembler to improve things - but I doubt that asm would help much on pp
02:26:04 Part Paul_The_Nerd
02:26:31amiconnIt seems the pp chips have a special interface to the lcd controller
02:26:59amiconnI think this interface is software configurable
02:27:37*amiconn would really like having pp docs available

02:32:20amiconnbarrywardell: Well, the lcd update is 'just' pumping data. so there are 2 main spots of possible optimisation: (1) reading from RAM. (2) writing to the lcd controller.
02:33:14amiconnOn pp, (1) will have less effect than it had on coldfire. PP does have a data cache, coldfire does not.
02:34:14amiconn(2) is hard on pp since the interface isn't documented. We stay well below of the lcd controller specs (as far as they are known), especially on the greyscale ipods

02:45:43linuxstb_Ah, you've got an rgb565 byte-swapped LCD?
02:46:57linuxstb_In the two calls to lcd_send_data - add a swap16() around the parameter.
02:47:03barrywardellpossibly? it's the same lcd as the x5
02:47:38amiconnIt's probably the lcd hookup (the interface I talked about)
02:48:05linuxstb_Looking at lcd-h10.c, you're sending a byte a time to the LCD - so you can choose the byte order yourself.
02:48:12amiconnIirc the ipod photo has the same lcd controller as the H300, yet it also has the rgb data byte-swapped

05:07:43jhMikeSWhat needs clarifying? I'll edit it to make it better.
05:09:43Davide-NYCLoaded it in CoolEditPro −− which one the copy or the original?
05:10:00Davide-NYCalso, did you save the copy to your X5 or to your PC?
05:12:00Davide-NYCjhMikeS: ciould it be some sort of header information that's being saved incorrectly?
05:12:30*Davide-NYC I tells myself to be quiet.
05:12:42jhMikeSthe copy
05:12:59jhMikeSno...I said the files were identical right?
05:13:01Davide-NYCthat's pretty clear from context
05:13:09Davide-NYCright
05:13:29jhMikeSSo how could they play differently unless the filesystem gives playback inaccurate info?
05:14:20Davide-NYCso if you play the X5 stored file on the PC it's 16s and the PC stored file played throught the same software is 18s.
05:14:25jhMikeSI saved the copy right back on top ... all done on the x5 through a drive letter in explorer
05:14:39Davide-NYCscary
05:14:41jhMikeSI played back both times on the x5
05:14:56jhMikeSA PC based player it doesn't matter
05:15:13Davide-NYCis it always 2 seconds difference?
05:15:24*Davide-NYC needs to do some testing
05:15:26jhMikeSYes on all recorded formats
05:15:55jhMikeSI used WAV cause it's easy to verify in a hex editor too...
05:16:15jhMikeSRecording writes the file itself perfectly.
05:16:22Davide-NYCdoesn't a binary file comparison to the trick?
05:16:29jhMikeSDid that too
05:16:47jhMikeSTextPad lets you compare two files and it said "identical".
05:17:31Davide-NYCI'm still unclear on something. In what instance does the file play 'short'?
05:20:19jhMikeSAlways
05:20:33jhMikeSThe one directly made by the recording feature that is
05:20:40Davide-NYCwow
05:20:45Davide-NYCOK I test
05:21:02Davide-NYCjhMikeS: did you try other inputs aside from FM?
05:21:15Davide-NYCbecause that is fairly new (sort of)

05:21:23jhMikeSI wrote it
05:21:33jhMikeSThere's no encoding difference.

05:25:55jhMikeShuh?

05:30:16Davide-NYCyou're fast
05:30:54jhMikeSI call radio_hardware_present() to decide to add the menu item. You're player must report it as not present.

06:30:00jhMikeSBeing able to use 11025 would help for that stuff but that encoder doesn't support that sampling rate.
06:30:21jhMikeSI have a note...you just want the menu item displayed for the sim and that's it?
06:32:01jhMikeSIt's an mpeg 1 encoder and you need mpeg 2.5 to support the super low sampling rates

06:49:23infamisfirst one
06:50:03jhMikeSDavide-NYC: The recording screen for the radio on software codec platforms is the same screen...
06:50:19jhMikeSYou just don't get a source option
06:50:53jhMikeSinfamis: hmmmm....shouldn't matter since regs are restored any way after that block
06:50:57Davide-NYCconfused
06:51:30jhMikeSIt calls recording_screen(false) for normal operation and recording_screen(true) when in FM radio screen
06:51:43jhMikeStrue means = "no source selection"
06:52:00Davide-NYCin the SIM, if I go to menu−−>recording−−>recording settings−−>source I do not get a FM Radio option?
06:52:19jhMikeSSo when you're doing it directly from the fm radio screen you cannot change sources...this must be thae case
06:52:28Davide-NYChow to I test the UI for the WRS when source = FM Radio?
06:52:48jhMikeSinfamis: why not just get the 3.4.6 compiler and assembler from the CVS tree and use that?

06:53:18infamisthere is none for cygwin...http://cygwin.com/packages/gcc-core/
06:53:28Davide-NYCOK I think we're having two *slightly* different conversations

08:11:50amiconnjhMikeS: I had a look at the register list problem in mp3_enc.c
08:12:51amiconngcc 3.4.4 not being able to compile this is clearly a gcc glitch. There is exactly one A register left, which is necessary to keep the stack pointer
08:13:43amiconnBUT - the way this block and its surrounds deal with clobbered registers is way odd, and afaics reduces performance
08:14:46amiconnAn asm block specifies a clobber list _for gcc_, i.e. so that gcc knows which registers to save/restore
08:15:09 Join Coldtoast [0] (n=me@ppp105-175.lns1.hba1.internode.on.net)
08:15:16amiconnSo I'm puzzled about the 2 blocks dealing with reg_buff
08:15:21Coldtoasthey. a friend of mine just installed rb on his h300
08:15:33amiconnThey shouldn't be necessary at all
08:15:46Coldtoasthe says in usb bootloader mode, his computer isn't detecting the h300
08:15:59Coldtoastby default, does the h300 enter Charge mode or something?
08:16:07amiconnno
08:16:32LinusNColdtoast: that is a bug in the bootloader
08:16:33amiconnThe computer not detecting the h300 in bootloader usb mode happens for a few people, and it's a mystery
08:16:48amiconnLinusN: You found it?
08:16:57Coldtoastoh? ok. does it happen EVERY time usually?
08:17:26amiconnAfaik it does, for those few devices where it happens.
08:17:38Coldtoastok
08:20:46Coldtoasthis first impressions aren't very favourable unfortunately :/
08:21:02Coldtoasthopefulyl he'll stick with it and find what rb offers to MORE than make up for things
08:21:26Coldtoasthe's not actually gotten to USING it yet. just the interface he's not enjoying
08:22:07ColdtoastI'm finding rb is better suited to the ipod then my iriver actually

08:37:45itsmeguysbasically, Rockbox on h10 is farely new, right? so, I download rockbox etc, and there is no sound. but barry (the dev of rockbox fro h10) said it has been fixed. I was wondering if it is in some update or something. has that got anything to do with cvs?
08:38:02Coldtoasth10 onlu JUST got sound
08:38:05Bagderthere is sound
08:38:21Bagderget the package from the cvs build page

09:22:22amiconndan_a: When you did the scanrate measurements, how warm was your unit?
09:22:26BagderI mostly mean that I don't think it is a question of optimizing
09:22:35amiconnI am asking because the refresh rate is temperature dependent
09:22:54amiconnBagder: I think it's mainly a question of optimising
09:23:01Lynx_Bagder: that's what my question was, ok
09:23:15Bagderamiconn: I think the difference is too big for that
09:23:30amiconn...and maybe some hardware features we don't know how to use yet
09:24:15amiconnIiuc the PP5022 (and probably PP5021) have voltage scaling to reduce core voltage when running at low clock, and that voltage scaling isn't automatic
09:24:43 Quit ToyKeeper (Read error: 113 (No route to host))
09:25:12amiconnBut our mp3 decoder clearly needs optimisation; on arm mp3 currently needs more cpu power that ogg vorbis, which is odd
09:27:21amiconnOn coldfire, mp3 uses only about half the cpu power of ogg vorbis with an optimised decoder
09:27:36 Quit [San] (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
09:28:01dan_aamiconn: I can't remember. I think I have done tests both immediately after booting up and when it has been playing MP3 for a while, both with the temperature in the room being around 22C
09:28:45amiconnOk, so medium temp
09:29:31 Join [San] [0] (n=San@212.2.172.233)
09:31:01amiconnI get 87.9Hz immediately after bootup (room temp around 23C), 87.7Hz when 'heating' the mini above 30C (putting it on top of the laptop for a while), and 88.3Hz after putting it in the fridge for a while
09:31:38amiconnSo I'd say the scan rate is the same for the full size & mini greyscale LCDs
09:32:09amiconnThere are tolerances of course; lcd controllers usually use simple RC oscillators
09:32:27amiconnThe scan rate on archos varies a lot more with temperature.

10:55:32itsmeguysdoes a / mean like a new command?
10:55:38webguest64pondlife: the only problem with logf is that it can't be activated selectively. If you place it at a frequently executed place in code the logf will be full quite fast. And if someone wants to see logf output from another specific place he'll be searching very long

11:01:24pondlifeAh, ok
11:01:29 Nick the_fuchs is now known as tuwe (n=the_fuch@193.5.60.49)
11:01:56pondlifeI'll put a #ifdef in for LOGF_QUEUES or somesuch
11:02:29pondlifeI didn't realise there was a limit to the number of logfs allowed - I'm just dumping them on the sim to stderr.txt
11:03:25markunwebguest64: I'm not so sure about the W anymore..
11:03:54webguest64markun: what exactly?
11:05:47LinusNpondlife: well, there is no limit, it's just that the logf buffer wraps
11:06:07pondlifeOK. I'll enable this on the sim debug build only (by default)
11:06:12LinusNgood
11:07:14jhMikeSLinusN: no op. on that? I just want to know if I should bother atm or do something more productive.
11:10:06LinusNjhMikeS: what problem are you trying to solve?
11:12:08jhMikeSLinusN: Well...when it comes to rearranging and mixing audio samples in long chunks, endianness matters. Is it a good idea for me to implement some of that for le too right now?
11:13:18JdGordondoes tagcache not work in the sim?

11:13:24jhMikeSor is it not too likely we'll encounter in the near future?
11:14:16markunJdGordon: works fine here
11:14:47LinusNjhMikeS: you mean reading two 16-bit samples as a long etc?
11:15:02JdGordonhmm... not working here.. i wonder why
11:15:23jhMikeSLinusN: Yes...especially mixing to mono
11:16:01LinusNjhMikeS: i'd say solve the problems when you face them
11:16:20jhMikeSI'm not facing it except in "what if" terms. :)

11:16:54markunwebguest64: got my last message?
11:17:27webguest64markun: what exactly should I look at? I don't like the W. IMHO, the bottom line should be FF.
11:18:28markunI don't think that looks very good, but perhaps we should ask other people
11:19:29LinusNmarkun: show me some screendumps
11:19:52webguest64markun: I checked the TTF version of Chicago. The 'hole' at the bottom of W is very very small, visible only at large sizes.
11:20:29markunwebguest64: didn't know what font it was based on..
11:20:44markunLinusN: I can make you some screenshots to compare later
11:20:49markunHave to go to work now

11:23:25webguest64markun: actually I've seen nimbus as something looking different. But there is also chicago and xtal in RB that llok the same as nimbus, only containt less glyphs. I don't know why they exist.

11:26:23linuxstbmarkun: What is the scramble command you need to run to build the Gigabeat bootloader?
11:27:56markunscramble -gigabeat rockbox.gigabeat FWIMG01.DAT
11:28:29linuxstbYou mean bootloader/bootloader.bin ?
11:28:49markunwell, right now it doesn't generate a bootloader.bin file
11:29:26linuxstbIt should be in the bootloader/ directory of your build directory. Looking at the existing configure script, I think that's just copied to rockbox.gigabeat.
11:29:38 Part eGen
11:29:41markunah, ok
11:29:45linuxstbSo rockbox.gigabeat and bootloader/bootloader.bin should be identical.
11:29:51markunyes, they are
11:29:56linuxstbI'll replace that copy with the scramble command.

11:55:15pondlifedan_a: I'm just working out how to use CVS and then I'll commit it
11:55:43tucozwhat should we call the direction keys on the x5? left/right/up/down or prev/next/plus/minus?
11:56:15*amiconn would prefer left/right/up/down
11:56:36tucozok. that's fine.
11:56:38amiconnlinuxstb: RED
11:56:47markunamiconn: yes, but the builds didn't fail
11:56:58markunmaybe a problem with the buildtable script?

12:03:00linuxstbamiconn: All I can think is that the scramble tool isn't returning the correct error code - so the build script thinks it's failed...

12:05:12tucozcool, like the sw controlled power led on the amiga :)
12:05:24tucozbut that wasn't two-colour though
12:05:38amiconnLinusN: What do you think: Should we use the X5 LED for the same purpose as the of does, or should we e.g. use the red led for hd activity?
12:06:38amiconnThe red and green led chip can be switched individually, so we can also produce yellow, and afaics they can also made blinking (w/o further cpu intervention)
12:08:46tucoznice
12:09:53amiconnThe amiga power led isn't really software controlled, or rather, not without changing other hw settings
12:10:03amiconnIt's coupled with the audio lowpass filter
12:10:06JdGordonhave fun with it... do orange for disk activity, red flashing when the battery is getting low.. green when the cpu boosts (if x5 has it), yellow for pea meter..
12:11:31pondlifeHmm, how long will it normally take forf a CVS commit to appear on the website? i.e. on the CVS build page or homepage?

12:49:38markunThey should be under the baseline?

12:51:21JdGordonumm...
12:51:43webguest64markun: IMHO they should be exactly as the normal comma. Just type ,Hello
12:52:05JdGordondiffenbach has a patch for the ipod doesnt he?
12:54:27markunwebguest64: they agree with you: http://www.microsoft.com/typography/developers/fdsspec/punc.htm
12:57:10webguest64markun: for U+201a: "This character aligns on the baseline at similar height as the comma."
12:58:05webguest64markun: it's weird but all glyphs (e.g. T) are somewhat below the base line which probably explains the problem with U+201a.
12:59:14webguest64markun: try to switch on the base line in fontforge (view -> H. Metrics IIRC) Then you'll see...

13:10:53JdGordonis it bad to boost the cpu if its not _really_ needed?
13:11:11webguest64Bagder: that would also kill the problems when people download RB for wrong platform
13:11:37Bagderwebguest35: it would possibly reduce them, not kill
13:11:52BagderJdGordon: yes
13:11:52dan_aJdGordon: It might waste battery
13:12:23tucozi think that would be hard to avoid. I think the images above the download links are good enough (unless you are blind)
13:12:44Bagderpeople just don't pay attention
13:12:48Bagderthey just click and install
13:12:51tucozhehe
13:12:53Bagderand then come asking
13:13:02Bagder"uh, what I don't know what I downloaded"
13:13:12tucozyes. and that can not be helped by renaming the extension
13:13:13JdGordonim trying to do list acceleration, it works fine now except while fast scrolling it will always select the 2nd item in the list if there is more than one screen.. OR or i can do it but it need cpu boosting to look better...
13:13:32Bagdertucoz: exactly, but it might be quicker to diagnose the mistake
13:13:33webguest64 Bagder: Einstein said: there are two endless things: the universe and human stupidity. I'm not sure about the universe though... :-) So you're right: reduce, not kill.
13:14:01JdGordonno he said "only 2 things are infinite.. the universe and human stupidity, and im not sure about the former"
13:14:18tucozsure. or ask them to go to the daily builds page and identify the model by looking at the picture, combined with the name of the build

13:55:27JdGordonno, (it doesnt but...) try scrolling a list shorter than the screen.. the selection moves down as expected... do a list longer than the screen and selection will jump from the middle somewhere to the 2nd top item

14:00:04tuwewell, i thought that was the intended behaviour. i like it that way. even with a relatively big font (i use nimbus 12 on an ipod mini)
14:00:22tuweand i like that it doesn't wrap.
14:00:36tuweit behaves correctly at start and end of the list
14:01:11bluebrothertuwe, ?
14:01:21JdGordondoes it stutter a bit while scrolling?
14:01:38JdGordoni guess its stil better for the list to stutter than playback stop :p

14:02:40tuweoh. you're in rz.uni-karlsruhe.de
14:03:07bluebrotheryeah. You just noted that name right after I came in.

14:05:39JdGordontuwe: ok, in that case i guess my stuttering is because audio is playing.. and id rather the gui stutter than the audio to stall
14:07:08tuweJdGordon: no it is playing something, but it's rather noisy :)
14:07:32tuwei think playback is good while scrolling around in the list

14:08:26bluebrotherdamn. Has someone else problems building logf-enabled?
14:08:31tuweJdGordon: ok it is not as good as i thought
14:08:48JdGordonthe longer u hold down next in the list, the faster the list ttravels...
14:08:53JdGordontuwe: how?
14:09:12tuweif you play a song and do excessive scrolling, the playback stops, and/or the scrolling stutters.
14:09:23*amiconn wonders what that should be good for

14:12:18JdGordonye, expected

14:13:26tuweok
14:13:34tuwei didn't find it anyway.
14:14:33tuweJdGordon: another thing is, if i scroll down to the bottom of the list, then put my hand off the scroll wheel for a moment, and scroll down further, it wraps the list.
14:16:06tuweJdGordon: if i choose a track from my list, it plays the track below instead.

14:44:53ElCabronHi guys I finally got it up and running!
14:44:56amiconnFor logf builds, the framepointer is of no use imho
14:45:47tucozok, so it could be wise to include -fomit-frame-pointer in logf builds (by default) then.
14:45:50amiconnThe problem is that the framepointer blocks one extra register, so asm blocks which are 'eating' registers might trigger errors
14:45:58tucozaha
14:46:24tucozso that is why gcc complains that it is out of registers
14:46:56 Join lorijho [0] (n=lorijho@83.222.37.174)
14:47:15tucozand by omitting the frame pointer, a register is freed and the build compiles as it should
14:47:19amiconnWe could set -fomit-frame-pointer for logf builds, but I wonder whether this would be a good idea
14:48:08amiconnNot setting it reveals places which are tight on registers. This might be useful for optimisation

14:51:21tucozanother huge asm-block in the works?
14:53:09amiconnYes. Unbuffered grayscale lib scrolling already uses asm, but scrolling with bitshift _and_ byte shift (i.e. scroll amount >8 and not a multiple of 8) is currently doen in 2 stages

15:08:11bluebrothersm007h, set "show files" to music, then you'll only see music files.
15:08:14sm007hwhen I start my iPod, I immediately see a screen that lets me select a music folder (based on Badger's suggestion) or if I click on rockbox, the whole thing reloads
15:08:32Bagderbut why do you click on the firmware file?
15:08:37Stroggsm007h: maybe you should copy some music to it?
15:08:40sm007hStrogg, I don't think you're making an appropriate analogy
15:09:05sm007hbefore I moved my music directory, it was the only thing there. so I clicked on it.
15:09:19Bagderyes
15:09:32Bagderbut its still a useful feature
15:09:36Stroggsm007h: think of the rockbox.ipod file as an exe file... when you run it, it runs.
15:09:43sm007hand now it's one of two things. so I may click it on accident or I may not click it but always be bothered by it being there

15:16:32*Strogg uninstalls Itunes. :)
15:16:49sm007hBadger, yeah, but I chose Supported files instead of all
15:16:49tucozsm007h, it is useful to have it there by default. If you do not want it, you can hide it. Or you can use tagcache, and browse by tags instead.
15:17:14sm007hand that should hide it. if I choose music, then I lose other media files, such as, pictures and videos
15:17:19markuncan rockbox on the ipod also load the firmware from .rockbox?
15:18:15tucozirivers can do that right?

15:18:58bluebrotherthe iriver bootloader can do so since version 6
15:19:13sm007hso what I'm asking is whether it not make more sense to have "all files" be all kinds, including execs, "supported" be media, and "music" be music. or if execs are included in the "supported files" then we should have a "media files" setting
15:19:46tuwesm007h: you can change all of that in the settings.
15:20:05tucozsm007h, in the not so distant future the default will be to load rockbox.iriver from .rockbox. maybe that is the case for the ipods as well.
15:20:11StroggWhat if you use your mp3 player as a portable harddrive (like I do) and you just want to check if a file is on there?
15:20:14sm007htuwe, are you referring to actually editing the config files manually?
15:20:41Carroarmato0Is there a way to force Rockbox on the Ipod nano to set the battery at regular 340mAh instead of the default 1300mAh? I think that that would saveup some battery time.
15:21:08sm007hStrogg, if you're seriously asking me, then I think the obvious solution is to set it to show "All files"

15:26:04tuwestupid question: how do i exit from the image viewer?
15:26:10bluebrothersm007h, for example I have /Albums which I use for CD albums. As you told, you have folders like /.rockbox/SomeAlbum which is weird.
15:26:19sm007htuwe: that's basically what I have now
15:26:30sm007hno I don't
15:26:39sm007hI said I had /.rockbox/music/
15:26:40bluebrotheralso, Bagder told to use a folder in the root dir.

15:32:00sm007h<bluebrother> sm007h, why don't you just put your files in subfolders? That way you can completely ignore the root folder (and maybe place your configurations there for easy access)
15:32:07sm007hI was referring to that
15:32:31bluebrotheryou can ignore that by just entering the music folder upon startup. That's mostly the way I do.

16:00:59leftrighthi there, looking at section 5.2 of the manual, it shouldnt be neccessary to NAVI/Right to make that selection, NAVI imples press down, and that isn't neccessary
16:01:56leftrightbluebrother: thats at section 5.2 Navigating the Main Menu
16:02:16bluebrotherleftright, what manual you are referring to? Iriver I guess?

16:02:36bluebrotheryou can use that two buttons alternatively so they should be named.

16:03:02 Part Quelsaruk ("Time makes no sense")
16:03:17leftrightbluebrother: description of NAVI implies press down
16:03:48bluebrotheryeah, but it isn't written as Navi + right.
16:04:14bluebrotheras it is an alternative, not a button combination. How else should this be written?
16:04:16leftrightyes but thats what it means to me, press down+right
16:04:29bluebrotherhmm.
16:05:45bluebrotherdo you think it would be better writing it as Navi, Right? This could be misunderstood to be a key sequence.
16:05:54LinusNbluebrother: no, i can't see any immediate flaws in your code that could cause this behaviour
16:06:46bluebrotherwhile the Play+Up should be clear.
16:06:50leftrightbluebrother: problem is that you are refering to the joystick as "Navi" and the action of pressing down on the joystick as Navi as well
16:07:34bluebrotherLinusN, thanks. I wanted to submit that patch to the tracker but only after solving that :(
16:08:10LinusNbluebrother: i guess resetting the settings doesn't help?
16:08:24bluebrotherunfortunately not.
16:08:35bluebrotherI also tried it on the target (h120), same.
16:08:44LinusNbtw, do you clear theme_file when resetting the settings?
16:09:23LinusNah, yes i see that you do
16:10:07bluebrotherbut when I swap the location it works. Currently I can load tarred themes on my player but it doesn't get remembered after reboot.
16:10:29leftrightbluebrother: i think that there should be two distinct functions for the joystick, i.e. joystick right and NAVI which implies press joystick down
16:11:29bluebrotherleftright, we're referring to the joystick as navi? As far as I understood we simply name the "buttons" of the directions and the press.
16:11:36leftrightQuote: Pressing the joystick down is labelled Navi throughout this manual. Its directions are labelled Right, Down, Left and Up.
16:11:58bluebrotheralso there is no combination that uses press + direction.
16:12:50leftrightaccording to that statement in the manual, whenever i see NAVI I must press down on the joystick
16:13:33bluebrotherleftright, sure, but NAVI / Right is an alternative. I find this naming pretty obvious.
16:14:01leftrightNAVI/RIGHT implies press down and right, not right select
16:14:11 Quit JdGordon ("Konversation terminated!")
16:14:17tucozleftright, Navi+Right implies that
16:14:29tucozNavi/Right implies Navi or Right
16:14:30bluebrotherhmm. Seems to be something that could be misunderstood.
16:14:35leftrightno NAVI implies press down
16:14:52leftrightquote: Pressing the joystick down is labelled Navi throughout this manual. Its directions are labelled Right, Down, Left and Up.
16:15:16tucozhmm, that sentence could perhaps be improved
16:15:46tucozafk
16:16:38LinusNbluebrother: so it happens in the sim as well?
16:17:07bluebrotherLinusN, yes. I first had this in the sim and found it to be the same on the target.
16:17:21LinusNok, should be easy to debug then
16:17:29 Quit sm007h ()
16:18:03bluebrotherusing gdb I discovered that for the h120 sim the string itself starts at an offset of 8, for the h300 at 4.
16:18:42bluebrotherI also tried creating a pointer to global_settings.theme_file. It pointed to a different memory location.
16:18:55bluebrotherbut I have absolutely no clue what's happening there.
16:21:43leftrightperhaps it should be noted in the description of Navi that Navi+right means press down and right, and, Navi/right means joystick to the right
16:22:12StroggI don't know anything about the docs or the source.. but that sounds confusing to me.
16:22:21bluebrotherleftright, I thought about adding something like that in the getting started chapter, 1.3
16:22:26Genre9mp3Does anyone know if bmp progress bars work on rwps? To be more accurate, on X5 remote?
16:22:38amiconnLinusN, bluebrother: I guess some .h file redefines struct packing. So .c files which include that .h use one definition, and those which don't use another
16:22:58LinusNamiconn: i'm thinking that too
16:25:23LinusNbut i can't see where that would be done
16:25:40leftrightproblem is that Navi has two meanings, 1) joystick. 2) press joystick down, the manual does not diffirentiate between these two
16:27:21bluebrotheras far as I understand it iriver refers to clicking the joystick as navi. As on h300 it actually is a button.
16:28:07leftrightand that is the problem, on the H1xx's its a joystick
16:28:12 Quit MarcoPolo (Remote closed the connection)
16:28:55Genre9mp3Nevermind my previous question...
16:29:30leftrightNavi on the H3xx descirbes the button function well, but on the H1xx it has dual meanings
16:29:40LinusNleftright, bluebrother: why are we even discussing this? afaik, none of the iriver players can combine select and directions
16:30:12leftrightits the noobs that i worry about, the manual is ambiguous for the H1xx with regards to Navi
16:31:13leftrightyes, developers might know that those selections aren't possible, but not all users know that
16:31:24bluebrotherhow about simply noting "a+b" means press both buttons and "a/b" means an alternative? I think this should do it.
16:31:28*Strogg enjoys his new freedom :)
16:32:01LinusNbut when and why do we combine navi with a direction in the manual?
16:32:26leftrighterr, isn't the horizontal scroll thing an example
16:32:49LinusNhow?
16:32:55bluebrotherno, that is holding the buttons and was play + direction before.
16:33:08bluebrotherwhich is a point where the manual isn't up to date.
16:33:22leftrightthat was incorporated to a hold down the joystick and right select
16:33:32LinusNno, not hold down
16:33:37LinusNthat is impossible
16:34:19leftrightLinus, I threw that feature away after trying it once, not a nice feature at all, to me
16:34:52LinusNi believe you, since you obviously tried to hold down the joystick while scrolling
16:35:01LinusNthat must have been a pain

17:35:56pondlifelinuxstb: What do the "ld" errors in the build table mean?
17:39:27leftrightthe subject of simplifying the Playlist "Insert" menus has been brought up before but shot down, I think that the "Insert" menu can be removed, as most folks have no understanding of how it actually works, and it seems that most folks use either "Insert Next" or "Insert last", rendering "Insert" superfluous, it also would unclutter the Playlist Menu
17:40:19amiconnInsert isn't superfluous at all
17:40:54leftrightyes but one has to understand how it works to utilise its potential, which isn't obvious
17:43:27leftrightobviously when creating an Initial playlist "Insert" is required, but thereafter "Insert Next" and "Insert Last" are accurate and easily understood.
17:43:47Genre9mp3Heh...unifont is too small for Gigabeat's screen!
17:43:56linuxstb_pondlife: It means Bagder needs to update his build scripts.
17:44:15pondlifeOK, nothing much to worry about then
17:44:28linuxstb_No - the builds are fine, just not what Bagder's scripts expected any more.
17:44:34tuweGenre9mp3: why does it affect bmp loading?

17:58:34Arathisis it in den 'rockbox' cvs? or do I need 'rockbox-devel' ?

19:21:59amiconnBut it saves RAM, so it should still be a good thing to do
19:22:01 Quit pondlife ("byebye")
19:23:50amiconnBasically a test should tell whether everything still works like it should. Afaics the 2 main points to test are (1) Different alignment on several lines. (2) whether it also still works with alternating sublines

19:24:25Nico_Ppreglow: have you seen the musepack seeking update ?

19:25:54amiconnThe array is uninitialised data, i.e. BSS and not included in the binary

19:29:12dishnectohey guyz how cud i watch a video file on my rockbox
19:29:37amiconnIf you had checked the build logs for the fm before it started to complain about region flash, you would have seen that the build scripts checked the binary size and decided to remove it again because it was too big
19:29:43preglowdishnecto: http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/PluginMpegplayer
19:30:00amiconnBut that means that your patch also reduces binary size at least a bit
19:30:15amiconnNot enough to make it fit again, but enough to stop the linker complaining
19:31:08lowlightyes, I saw the warning (3056 bytes too large)
19:32:02tucozArathis, in case you plan to print the H10 manual, i would suggest you wait for some time with that. It is far from complete.

19:50:24tucozArathis, i understand you. I don't either. But the GFDL is a copyleft licence, which basically says: 'Do what you want, as long as you keep the licence in the manual'
19:51:08Arathisgreat. 'cause I don't like reading 130 pages at the screen xD
19:51:19StroggYou could always ask a lawyer.. the $30 investment would probably be worth it
19:51:58Arathisnot if I just do it for personal use and won't redistribute it

19:54:00tucozcool
19:54:26tucozI just wouldn't want you to spend $7.13 on something incomplete

19:58:36dan_aDoes that need a new target tree? Or should I leave just that in firmware/crt0.S?

20:01:29amiconnIt's very probably not stuck
20:01:38amiconnimages/ just takes a while
20:02:33dan_aIf I leave it in firmware/crt0.S then that means I can add a comment to say where the rest of the file has gone

20:47:01tucozjust run the rockboxdev.sh script from the tools folder in the rockbox cvs tree
20:47:02bluebrotheror use the script I mentioned earlier
20:47:30Arathisoaky
20:47:31tucozyou can edit that to set the path to where it is installed
20:48:03tucozin case you want it to be installed in your /home/arathis/arm directory for intanse
20:48:08tucozinstance
20:48:13ArathisI'll try that when the port has developed to a point I'd use it

20:49:12*dan_a thinks he has spotted a small Sansa bug
20:49:18Arathis+a
20:49:51tucozjust read it. You will see some white space in the key tables. That is, where the keys are defined.
20:50:09tucozinstall instructions for the H10
20:51:16tucozthe H10 was added to the daily builds a couple of days ago, and the same is true for the manual. So, I only added the proper definitions so that you can build a manual.

20:57:11dan_aamiconn: Nothing that will be affecting us yet, AFAICT. CONFIG_CPU on the Sansa is defined as PP5024, and there is nothing in app.lds for that, so the linker would give incorrect memory locations
20:58:25Cris_Cr0ssman, i give up.. rockbox is too difficult to navigate
20:58:43linuxstbdan_a: Yes, I think Bagder is just using bootloader builds at the moment - i.e. boot.lds

21:04:50amiconnNothing serious - the timer is probably off-by-one
21:05:25jhMikeSamiconn: you were talking about that gcc glitch earlier but weren't around. what's up?
21:05:35linuxstbdan_a: So "DEV_RS |= 4;" doesn't seem to work?
21:06:27amiconnI referred to the fact that m68k-elf-gcc <= 3.4.5 fails to find a free register despite the fact that there is one
21:06:42amiconnOtherwise building wouldn't work on any gcc version
21:06:56dan_alinuxstb: Not as far as I can see. The bootloader brings up a Sandisk logo, and then whatever I try to do it seems like the device has hung.
21:07:05amiconnBut the construct with the register save and restore block is really odd anyway
21:07:21amiconnI guess it leads to registers being saved twice, thereby wasting cycles
21:08:02linuxstbdan_a: But the same mi4 creation procedure creates a working original firmware?
21:08:35amiconndan_a: Is it possible that the sansa tries to start the main firmware in thumb mode?
21:08:43dan_alinuxstb: It does, and I'm sure Bagder has run one with modified strings
21:09:18jhMikeSamiconn: Is it not odd that the registers are deliberately being saved but also on the clobber list?
21:09:24dan_aamiconn: I've wondered that, but the OF *seems* to start in normal mode
21:09:40amiconnjhMikeS: Yes, that's really odd
21:09:43jhMikeSamiconn: What to do about it? Save regs for older gcc and use clobber list for newer?
21:09:54amiconnThe extra save and restore blocks should be completely unnecessary
21:09:58*dan_a adds "explicitly come out of thumb mode" to list of tests to perform
21:10:01 Join rotator [0] (n=e@rockbox/developer/rotator)
21:10:37amiconnI would use the clobber list exclusively, and drop the save-and-restore blocks
21:10:41jhMikeSyes...but I'd like it to build for those using cygwin
21:10:49jhMikeSOr just forget it?
21:10:51amiconnIf doing that makes it stop working properly
21:10:59amiconnI build on cygwin and have no problems
21:11:18jhMikeSwhat gcc version?
21:11:21Arathisbluebrother: I build the manual, but it's bigger than yours. ..
21:11:30amiconnI am using m68k-elf-gcc 3.4.6 though, built myself
21:11:49jhMikeSAhhh...I recommended that infamis do exactly that
21:12:03amiconnIt takes a while, but is worth the effort
21:12:35amiconnIn case he doesn't have special requirements for the compiler path, I could just zip mine and send it to him
21:12:46amiconn(my prefix is /opt/m68k )
21:13:14jhMikeSTold him "maybe rb has surpassed cygwin" ;D. Got some yucks from that one.
21:13:52amiconnIf I knew how to make cygwin packages, I could make a replacement package for the package hosted on rockbox.org (which still is 3.4.5)
21:14:14amiconnThis has nothing to do with cygwin itself
21:14:28jhMikeSMight be a good idea to keep the tools in sync there.
21:14:42jhMikeSIt was sort of a joke. :)
21:15:38jhMikeSok...save/restore block *poof*
21:15:54amiconnI wonder whether we would be better off using a more modern gcc for m68k as well
21:16:13amiconnWe switched to 4.x for all targets except coldfire
21:16:50amiconnBtw, the parameter list for this asm block is slightly wrong
21:17:21jhMikeSI haven't looked to much at it...what'd you find?
21:17:28amiconnenwindow is changed within the block, hence it is a combined in/out parameter
21:18:05jhMikeSit should be "+a" (enwindow) in the out block?
21:18:11amiconnyes
21:18:44amiconnI guess the save/restore blocks are there for covering more mistakes like that - in that case removing them will probably make the encoder glitch in some way
21:19:39jhMikeSthe second block changes yint but it's not in the out list
21:21:36*linuxstb does the dance of the 25th target

21:24:27mirakwonderfull
21:24:35jhMikeSDoesn't the out block tell the compiler the value must be preserved subsequent to the block?
21:24:47jhMikeSasm block that is
21:24:47 Join uski [0] (n=uski@lns-bzn-45-82-65-187-201.adsl.proxad.net)
21:24:56amiconnno
21:25:17amiconnIt just tells the compiler which values are output values
21:25:20dan_aIs there any way to change user in CVS - from read-only to read-write?
21:25:49jhMikeSWhat if it's not an output for use in C codec but simply altered in the asm?
21:25:54amiconnIf these values aren't used subsequent to the block, it won't preserve them
21:26:25mirakdoes anyone ever heard of a a solver, which can factorise or decompose equations like what some Texas Instruments calculators can do ?
21:26:30jhMikeSSo anything that's c var written to must be in the out block?
21:26:50amiconnBut if you don't tell gcc that the value is changed, gcc might try to reuse the register value, thinking it still holds the same value as before the block
21:26:54*jhMikeS is gett block and list messed up
21:27:59amiconnIf that doesn't hold, all sorts of weird things might happen, even crashes and freezes
21:28:14jhMikeSOk...so it tells in not to assume the value of something sort of like volatile in c
21:28:26amiconnIt becomes more likely to happen at higher optimisation levels
21:29:16amiconnWell, you can pass an asm block an intermediate result, e.g. [val1]"d"(a * b)
21:29:41jhMikeSyes
21:29:57amiconnIf you don't tell this value gets changed in the block, the compiler will probably try to reuse the register value if something after the block also needs the result of a * b
21:29:58crwlmirak, have an example equation?
21:30:07jhMikeSmakes sense
21:30:42amiconnSo you need to tell gcc it gets changed... and in turn you need to put the result of a * b in a temporary variable
21:31:03amiconn...because an expression is not an lvalue and hence cannot be put in the output list
21:31:47mirakcrwl: block[8*5] = (d0 - W6 * d1 - d2 + W2 * d3 - ((W7 * d7 * 1/sqrt(2) + W1 * d4 * 1/sqrt(2) - W3 * d5 * 1/sqrt(2) - W5 * d6 * 1/sqrt(2) - W7 * d4 * 1/sqrt(2) + W1 * d7 * 1/sqrt(2) + W3 * d6 * 1/sqrt(2) - W5 * d5 * 1/sqrt(2) ) >> 17;
21:32:12jhMikeSlike I said, the asm changes y_int in the second block but does not use it outside the second block again
21:32:14mirakcrwl: that's simple to do manually but I have 4 other lines, I am just lazy
21:33:00crwlmirak, ugh, that's longish, and i'm not much at all knowledgeable with mathemathics, but i *think* have factorized some equations with qalculate! ;)
21:33:25amiconnjhMikeS: You're sure? The second block is used within a loop...
21:33:59jhMikeSright...it should probably be in out too
21:34:31amiconnPutting it in out will probably change nothing in the binary, but it's cleaner
21:34:39mirakcrwl: ok I remember this one, I didn't knew it could factorise
21:34:57jhMikeSwhat's the "=" again? (I'm new at the gcc asm stuff)
21:35:10amiconn= is output only
21:35:16amiconn+ is combined in/out
21:35:22jhMikeSbut it's in the "in" list
21:36:11amiconnhttp://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc-4.0.3/gcc/Extended-Asm.html#Extended-Asm
21:36:29amiconnNo, it's in the out list

21:52:31*Strogg notices that ChekS' day isn't based in the same universe that his is... hehe
21:52:59ChekSI have a question... would it be possible to make a firmware for a Medion mp3 player? It's the same chipset as the Ipod from Portalplayer ....
21:53:54ChekSI use the webclient .. since my laptop does not have Mirc
21:54:04dan_aChekS: Not unless somebody who has one is willing to do some hard work - see http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/NewPort
21:55:02ChekShmmm i am a computer engineer... but i have not programmed for many years.. hehe... not my thing anymore.
21:56:04dan_aThere are 3 ports in progress for other PortalPlayer DAPs, so it might not be too hard
21:56:20 Quit Arathis ("[rl_bot quit]")
21:56:25ChekSbut since its the same inside as an Ipod... and Ipod has a Rockbox ... it cannot be that hard?
21:56:56linuxstbChekS: The first thing to do is to physically disassemble it and identify all the chips inside - especially the audio codec (DAC) and the LCD controller.
21:57:12linuxstbIf you can identify those, then a port will be easier.
21:57:17*Strogg wishes he had a DAC
21:57:36ChekSyes. I will do this. I think this is a nice project to start .. i have all the time in the world next to work and two childeren.. lol
21:57:58 Quit Siku ()
21:58:03linuxstbChekS: But you're right - porting Rockbox to other PortalPlayer DAPs is easier than porting to a completely new architecture - but no-one is going to do it without owning such a player.
21:58:19ChekSthe kewl thing about the medion.. it cost virtually nothing to buy second hand... i bought mine... 20 GB for 75 euro
21:58:20StroggBuy the dev team a box of players. hehe
21:59:13ChekSno.. i will do it myself if people can point me in the right direction.. i think i start reading how the ported it to the ipod.

22:01:58StroggI don't know if the same applies to your player.. but I screwed up my ipod 4-5 times when installing rockbox. hehe
22:02:13Stroggbut I was able to recover it kuz I kept a copy of the original firmware..
22:03:48dan_aVery few people have permenantly damaged their players by developing Rockbox on them
22:04:37ChekSyeah.. it's kinda strange way of upgrading.... it has a system folder where the is a formware file called "jukebox.MI" or something... and it loads that when it's start up on a FAT32 partition.
22:05:12ChekSyou can just replace that file when it's on USB disk mode.. and it's upgraded

22:10:08dan_aChekS: Is there a recovery mode for it? Some way to correct it if you put a bad firmware on?
22:11:29ChekSdan_a yes there is a recovery_cd.exe file that does that
22:11:40jhMikeSlowlight: you suggest I try disabling it? There's another problem related to that. If you start recording while it's still reading...you'll see a dup file name in "recordings"
22:11:54ChekSbarrywardell thank you forthat site.. that helps a lot!
22:12:47barrywardellChekS: a port for the medion would work a lot like the Sansa, H10 and Elio ports
22:12:55jhMikeSlowlight: The files always play back that way on x5 anyhow...even after reboot so I have doubts about that being the source of the progress problem
22:13:06jhMikeSBut will try...who knows.

22:23:50barrywardellCheckS: there's a trick to that
22:24:04barrywardellyou can use a dummy key - dsa(1,0) iirc
22:24:24barrywardellthe scramble tool will build a mi4 file for you
22:24:28mirakthe main trick is to remove the multiplication by cos(4pi/16) which is 1/sqrt(2) by multiplying with sqrt(2). Since it's 1 you don't need to multiply anymore
22:24:35barrywardellit's in the tools directory in Rockbox
22:24:37linuxstbChekS: You can probably just run the existing Elio TPJ1022 bootloader that I'm in the process of developing. It's a very very basic firmware that writes some debugging text files to your disk.

22:38:56billytwowillyyar. It sounded like you had a firmware ready to be tried or something;) Which would be great if it was teh sansa player;)
22:39:31barrywardellmerbanan: unfortunately not. there are two different 5/6GB versions - UMS and MTP. they both use different mi4 versions
22:39:43barrywardelland the 20GB has a different LCD

22:40:46merbananbarrywardell: ok, I forgot that the bootloader check the version number otherwise you could have just signed and calculate the checksum
22:40:56mirakI figured out the left shift 11 in d0 = (block[8*0] << 11) + 65536; now I am not sure for the 65536
22:40:59barrywardellBagder: i sent you the third mi4. maybe put them in different directories to avoid the naming issue?
22:41:16Bagderyes
22:43:04MassaIs it possible to display a bitmap and make sure it's _always_ in foreground and may not be overlapped e.g. by text?
22:43:07FOADH300 broken?
22:44:33jhMikeSlowlight: problem still occurs with no dircache :\
22:46:22dan_abarrywardell: There are a few GPIO pins which MrH has suggested we try to get the LCD working on the Sansa - so I just need to know if all I have to do is GPIOX_OUTPUT_VAL |= 1<<pin, or if there is more to it than that
22:46:48barrywardelldan_a: yes, that is all you have to do
22:47:03barrywardellyou may need to enable them first
22:47:16barrywardellGPIOX_ENABLE |= 1<<pin
22:47:36barrywardelland if you want to use them for output GPIOX_OUTPUT_EN |= 1<<pin
22:48:23dan_aThank you! I'll give that a go

22:49:56FOADI just installed new daily on my H300 and I don't get sound anymore.
22:50:11FOADAnd the second counter goes way too fast.
22:50:18FOADOf the song position.
22:50:30Bagderbarrywardell: that third mi4 is for "H10_5GB-MTP" ?
22:50:42Bagderor what is a suitable name?
22:50:46barrywardellyes, 5 and 6GB
22:51:00Bagderyeah, but I call them 5GB for simplicity
22:51:05barrywardellthat's fine
22:51:27lowlightjhMikeS: odd...and the copy that plays ok has the same checksum?
22:52:19Bagderbarrywardell: that one is now stored in a subdir on the download server
22:52:29barrywardellgreat, thanks Bagder
22:52:38lowlightMassa: I think it depends on the order things are sent to the lcd
22:53:12jhMikeSlowlight: a binary file comparison says they're identical so by implication...

22:54:42mirakok my guess is that 65536 is added to compensate a lost of precision
22:54:56LinusNFOAD: 1) did you unzip the *entire* zip file? 2) have you tried to reset the settings?
22:55:09*jhMikeS just caused: "internal compiler error: in emit_move_insn, at expr.c:2809, Please submit a full bug report"
22:55:22Massalowlight, so actually I should be able to bring a bitmap in foreground by putting it in before the text in the WPS file?
22:56:21lowlightMassa: no, last
22:57:21Massalowlight, so "%xdasome text" should display the text in front of the bitmap if it overlaps and "some text%xda" should keep the text in background?

23:00:00lowlightMassa: I think the wps always displays all the text first, then does the images
23:00:38FOADLinusN: thanks, fixed.
23:00:49MassaHmm, it seems that scrolling text is always displayed last...
23:00:59lowlightMassa: try to follow gui_wps_refresh
23:01:33lowlighta scrolling text line is always updated in a separate thread
23:02:16Massalowlight: aah - that maybe the problem - so it's not possible to have a scrolling text scroll behind a bitmap?
23:02:32LinusNlowlight: how should the tar file look like?
23:03:48lowlightLinusN: tar file?
23:03:58LinusNyes, the .rbt file
23:05:02lowlightI'm not sure what you mean
23:05:17LinusNi'm an idiot
23:05:21linuxstb_Bagder: Thanks for fixing my tpj1022 target_id
23:05:36*Bagder bows
23:05:47LinusNlowlight: i mistook you for bluebrother
23:06:29linuxstb_Bagder: And sorry for breaking your build scripts this morning.
23:06:35Bagderhaha
23:06:54linuxstb_And I was blamed for the redness.... :)
23:07:26Bagderlinuxstb: so have you gotten the LCD to show anything?
23:07:57linuxstb_No, not yet. I did some easy work instead... I think I need to dig into the bootloader disassembly.
23:08:24 Part LinusN
23:08:30linuxstb_(or kidnap MrH and lock him in a room with my Elio)
23:09:10MassaAnother question (related to that): when an image will be cleared, the function clear_image_pos is called - this just fills a rectangle with the background color (as far as I understand). This has some sideeffects for text which will be displayed on same position.
23:09:16Bagderand we can't even manage to reset the sansa...
23:10:05MassaIsn't there another possibility to clear an image?
23:11:56linuxstb_Bagder: What about branching to address 0, or somewhere else in the bootloader? Just to try and confirm your code is running?
23:12:12Bagderdan_a works on that
23:12:31Bagderhe even added code into the original firmware and ran that... with no success
23:12:54Bagderbut it might be that the reset isn't working properly
23:13:57linuxstb_Yes, that's what I mean - trying something else rather than reset.
23:14:24Bagderyeah, we should write code that changes a string or something
23:14:39Bagderor a bitmap
23:15:58dan_aAfter I've done these GPIO tests I want to try changing the location of the first jump in the original firmware to some non-code location, and then jumping from there to where the first jump should have landed.
23:16:32Bagdera good idea
23:18:43*Bagder has a bad case of "I'm just gonna clean up this..." and now my system dies hard on boot
23:20:33lowlightMassa: clear_image_pos doesn't fill a rect with the background color...it displays the bitmap with inverted colors so it clears the original bitmap (unless there was text overtop of it)

23:29:29dionoeadoes the docs system used by the manual allow translations through stuff like .po files or something ? (just curious for another project)
23:30:21BagderI don't think so
23:30:30linuxstb_It's just plain LaTeX - I've no idea if there are facilities in LaTeX for translations.
23:30:49dionoeaok, thanks
23:35:33dionoeabtw, rockbox must be the only opensource project with such a good documentation. I wonder how you got people motivated :)
23:35:54preglowtranslations as in how?
23:36:00preglowtranslate button names or stuff?
23:36:09preglowjust whatever is translated in rockbox?
23:36:11Bagderdionoea: its all the glory and appreciation you get from your family! ;-)
