#rockbox log for 2007-01-25

00:00:13linuxstb_There are no fonts in the build.
00:00:23linuxstb_(apart from the built-in system font)

00:00:28spughm, okay

00:00:42Mikachuyeah i know, that's why i was surprised to not see https anywhere in the first place :)
00:01:00zefiehmm it doesnt find it even after tweaking the vid/pid/rev
00:01:00dan_aRoan: A lot of people would like to see ROCKboxed as the default theme - if it supported every language, then that would help their case
00:01:12zefieBadger: i compiled it it just wont find the device
00:01:22spugso a theme that's included in SVN has to use the built-in system font? seems strange that an SVN theme would require the fonts package
00:01:33ZagorMikachu: well we don't know what happens when you call it. the link bagder posted was http and promptly redirected to https.
00:01:34linuxstb_spug: No.
00:01:35Mikachui doubt any wps has a font with _every_ language

00:01:46Bagder#define ORG_PRODUCT_ID 0x0720
00:02:00spuglinuxstb_: hm, okay
00:02:01Zagoralso Microsoft isn't exactly Standard Followers #1. they can just as well have done something home-cooked.
00:02:05linuxstb_spug: Users are expected to install the font package when they first install Rockbox. It just doesn't need to be updated very often, so it's separate.
00:02:15Bagderzefie: I bet the c200 has different vendor/product codes
00:02:29MikachuZagor: ah yes it did, i didn't see that, the url in the content of the https page isn't https though :)
00:02:39spuglinuxstb_: ah, okay. thanks.

00:09:38zefieit works fine
00:10:01Bagderthen it lacks the e200_code.o
00:10:07zefiei know

00:15:30ZagorRandom Number Generator. Licensed Products must implement and make use of a random number generator that is Cryptographically Random. For the avoidance of doubt, linear congruential random number generators are not acceptable.
00:16:24ZagorLicensed Products must implement support for Secure Store. Secure Store is defined as a data store for storing stateful WMDRM information including, but not limited to, play count and relative expiration.
00:16:34zefiemaybe e200tool and windows dont get along

00:17:53ZagorIf a Licensed Product implements Anti-Rollback Clock and detects and processes a Clock Rollback Event, WMDRM must delete any WMDRM License that specifies DeleteOnClockRollback.

01:00:13Roandan_a: Currently I'm using a font that is part of the fonts-package. It sounds like it will be easiest to pick a different font with better language support from within that package. Otherwise I need to find/modify/create a font with better language support that is good enough to become part of the fonts package.
01:00:20zefieanyway i think its safe to assume its PP5022
01:00:25zefiebut now what lol
01:00:31ZagorMikachu: well it's a mess coding it because the bits are packed together 12+12+12 etc.

01:09:42g33is there any chance installing the latest rockbox might help? the one i have is maybe 6months old
01:09:46zefiethe fact that it doesnt say invalid image is what sparks my interest
01:10:20safetydang33, it can't hurt

01:55:49dewdudeif you're using rockbox..aren't you trying to get away from itunes
01:55:54dewdudei mean..that was my reasoning.
01:56:15LloreanZagor: There was a converter for a while, I thought. I know there was at least one that recovered your playlists, but I thought there was one that converted to TagCache (when it had that name)
01:56:44Zagordewdude: yes, but it's quite painful for those who have a large collection in their ipod already.
01:56:52Mikachudewdude: apparently about half of them are converting because they want a background picture :)
01:56:58Zagoror maybe there's a simpler way. I've never used an ipod...
01:57:06ZagorMikachu: hehe
01:57:09dewdudeam i the only person who purchased an ipod specifically for rockbox?
01:57:29Mikachuthe idea that first comes to mind is to read the tags of the mp3 files on the ipod and move+rename them on the device
01:57:38Mikachushould require no actual data transfer (apart from the tags of course)
01:57:56dewdudetag&rename will rename files based on tag information...
01:58:10dewdudebut you ahve the problem of itunes likes to put files into random places
01:58:19Mikachuso use a better tagger
01:58:35dewdudetag&rename is a good tagger
01:58:38Mikachumoving all files to /<artist>/<album>/file automatically isn't hard

02:57:28SoapI'm not the man to answer in detail, but as far as I know some low-level code was gathered from IpodLinux in the early days. If you follow both projects now you'll see much more low-level developement in Rockbox than IpodLinux.

03:13:03Lloreanrds: Out of curiosity, *why*?
03:13:35LloreanSpecifically, why do you want to add additional overhead to Rockbox (also probably preventing it from using dual core) just so that you can be running it on top of iPL?
03:14:49 Quit fathefner ()
03:14:49rdsLlorean: just curiosity
03:15:52Lloreanrds: In theory it's possible, but with the option to triple boot already available in both bootloaders the best solution would be to get ROLO working in Rockbox, and an equivalent working in iPL so that you can have one reboot you into the other, and vice versa.
03:16:18LloreanYou get the benefits of running Rockbox natively, and it can be disguised as looking like you're just launching an app
03:17:33LloreanWell, in theory ROLO can load iPL, though I don't believe anyone's tried it yet, since I'm too lazy to set up an ext2 partition again.

04:20:48webguest15do u think it would be possible to transform a rockbox operated player in a kind of usb soundcard?
04:21:28LloreanIt might be able to transform one of the portalplayer ones into a bad one, possibly.
04:22:11webguest15that would be kinda cool tough i believe the latency wouldn't that much of a miracle
04:22:34LloreanWell, with the PortalPlayer ones, the USB is more or less software controlled. I'm not sure to what extent, but if it's enough, you could basically run a software soundcard that communicates through the USB port. It'd be *bad* if it's even physically capable.
04:22:51webguest15why bad?
04:23:03perplexitythe question is *why* you would want to do that.. I mean really.. a usb soundcard can be had for cheaps
04:23:27webguest15sure but i already have my player ;)
04:23:35Lloreanwebguest15: Well, you're working with a rather limitedly slow processor. I mean how bad it is depends on how much power it really needs to have, I suppose.
04:23:54perplexityrighto then.. check the wiki, install your cross-compiler and off you go ;)
04:24:08webguest15well u don't need flops to play PCM
04:24:23perplexityyou do to run an isosynchronous usb interface though
04:24:27webguest15already have cross compiler
04:24:47webguest15is that power consumming?

04:33:39webguest15gotta take some advice from skilled rockbox devel
04:33:59perplexitywell then, as Llorean said.. it *may* be possible on a PP unit, but you will need to write your own usb gadget stack from scratch most likely.. and don't even think about trying to do anything else on the player at the same time..
04:34:26webguest15it's sort of hard work: alsa backend, rockbox plugin... even some rockbox core mods...
04:34:53LloreanNot to mention there's no USB driver at all on PortalPlayer targets yet.
04:34:53webguest15what is a PP unit?
04:34:58perplexitywhat has alsa got to do with it? you need to impliment the USB sound spec
04:35:01safetydanDo we even know how USB works on PP targets?
04:35:04LloreaniRiver H10, Sansa, iPod.
04:35:05safetydanah, beaten by Llorean again
04:35:14perplexitydoubt it..
04:35:36Lloreansafetydan: We've made some headway. Someone "noticed" that the USB controller seems identical to another one that is documented, but with offset registers (or something, I'm only vaguely aware of it)
04:35:52webguest15USB sound spec... gotta take a look into that.
04:35:57LloreanBut it's still all software, so we need a USB stack, etc.
04:36:12safetydanLlorean, ah yes, I remember those emails now
04:36:54safetydanwebguest15, put it this way, unless your time is free and you have a lot of it, it's going to be a lot cheaper to buy a USB sound card
04:37:36webguest15my time ain't free. got a limited amount of that: round a century or so. What's limited got a price...
04:37:53webguest15a least in capitalist countries
04:38:35webguest15but the real question is: do i want to invest my time in a IT project that seems interresting...
04:38:51LloreanI'd suggest doing on that's actually beneficial to the Rockbox community as a whole.
04:38:58LloreanBut that's what I always suggest.
04:39:30webguest15sure but i'm not confident at all w/ hardware reverse engineering...
04:39:51webguest15if that's what u have in mind
04:40:11safetydanwebguest15, well first you need to figure out how to talk to the PortalPlayer USB hardware. Then you need to write a USB stack that works with that and Rockbox. Then you need to implement the USB sound device spec. Then you need to figure out how to link that to the Rockbox PCM playback system.
04:40:18safetydanJust a small matter of programming really.

04:58:27LloreanJPMaximilian: Figured.
04:58:48Lloreansaratoga: The "Experiment" one?
04:59:08saratogathe v6 one
04:59:13saratogai believe its the current version
04:59:44saratogaanyway, if the voltage patch is at very least reasonably compatable with the cop patch, and stable on its own, i think it should be commited
04:59:47saratogaits useful on its own
04:59:57saratogaand more work will be required for the cop patch anyway
05:00:09saratogasince we currently don't seem to be able to put have the stuff that should go on the cop on the cop
05:00:28saratogaat least not without getting random lockups
05:00:49Lloreansaratoga: My Nano runs with things on the COP just fine.
05:01:04LloreanIf the PP5020 gets random lockups while putting things on the COP, then there are still things to work out.
05:01:46LloreanI'm not sure why someone there is moving anything but the codec thread to the cop though
05:02:14saratogaevidently some of the threads can't work on the cop
05:02:17saratogayeah i don't know why they'd do that
05:02:24saratogait seems like codec on the cop would be easiest
05:02:24LloreanThe only threads on COP should be Main and Codec
05:02:37LloreanAlso, I'm not sure 60/90 are the best frequency choices...
05:03:16LloreanIt's a good deal higher than what we use today
05:03:17saratogayeah i was wondering about that, but we'll probably want to tweak it anyway once the COP is commited
05:03:28saratogasince then we'll need way less CPU
05:03:34LloreanIt seems like the patch is trying to kill two birds (skipping in playback, and freezes) and it should only be killing one.
05:03:55LloreanIf someone posted one that didn't change the current CPU speeds, and fixed the freezes, it'd probably be *much* more likely to get included.
05:04:05saratogaalso, does rockbox really not idle the CPU?
05:04:23LloreanRockbox only idles the CPU if nothing at all needs to be done, I believe. Which is a rare state indeed.
05:04:38saratogayeah, i'm mostly wondering about when the thing is sitting there not playing
05:04:47saratogai wonder why they chose such a high CPU speed for it
05:04:58saratogaseems like 10 or 12 MHz should be fine
05:04:58LloreanAs I said, they want to fix problems the patch shouldn't be addressing
05:05:10LloreanI think the 24 is something they were restricted to

06:40:40midkayprefixing a setting+value with "~" will effectively keep that setting locked so that even if it's changed in Rockbox, the change won't be saved to the config file unless the file is edited or the tilde removed?

06:44:19LloreanI rather like that as a feature.
06:44:25LloreanAssuming that's what it is.
06:45:35midkayyeah, it seems useful actually...
06:45:56LloreanIt lets you set some constant defaults.
06:46:38midkayyeah, right.
06:47:06LloreanThough I personally would only be likely to use it for volume. Still, some people might like it for repeat mode, shuffle mode, etc.
06:47:59midkayyeah.. i can see it being useful for a lot of people. i don't think off the top of my head that i'd use it for anything, though.
06:48:05fejfighterI could be handy for testing settings as a one off, especially testing patches

07:04:05LloreanJdGordon: It solves the problem of people setting the volume too high from being in a loud place, turning it off, and then turning it on and deafening themselves.
07:04:20LloreanIt doesn't seem *terribly* useful, but I can see it as a general solution to more problems than many specific solutions are.
07:04:56JdGordonit just needs a simple way to manage them.. because once they are loaded, even reloading config.cfg wont disable them
07:06:10LloreanJust make it so that explicitly loading a .cfg file (clicking on it, browse configs, etc) resets all ~s set
07:06:10Aaron3Do any of you know which DAP has the highest quality output? Is the SNR coming from the Ipod's line out as good as one can get?
07:06:57LloreanAaron3: The digital output of the H100 series tops that, if you've got a good external DAC.

07:07:29JdGordonLlorean: atm the ~ settings are only read if config.cfg is used (and they are onl saved if saving to config.cfg), you rekon loading any other .cfg is good enough?
07:07:54Aaron3Such as a headphone amp?
07:09:04LloreanAaron3: I said "DAC" not "Amp"
07:10:05LloreanJdGordon: Well, if you load a .cfg manually, any settings *in* that .cfg should be reset.
07:10:05Aaron3Well what is a DAC(Digital Audio Converter)? I thought those were inside the MP# player
07:10:10LloreanSo if it sets volume, it should.
07:10:20LloreanBut if it's just a theme.cfg, it should only overwrite the theme options.
07:10:39LloreanAaron3: Yes, but if you're using an MP3 player's Digital Output, clearly it hasn't been converted to Analog yet, has it?
07:10:46perplexity<Llorean> Aaron3: The digital output of the H100 series tops that, if you've got a good external DAC. <−− that looked pretty self explanatory to me..
07:14:51Aaron3Well I guess it was self explanatory for you but not for me
07:16:41LloreanAs for the iPod SNR, I can still pick up a hiss with my CX300s, it's not as bad as the analog out on the iRiver, but it's worse than the Archos or Sansa.

07:49:43LloreanAaron3: It's been done before, I believe, but I'm not sure it's worth the effort. You're going to want to use the line-out with a proper amp anyway, and in that case you could just use a dongle.

07:50:49LloreanOh, sorry, I read "line-out pins" for some reason

07:56:18Aaron3What causes a FLAC file's kbps to be really low, like 500 instead of around 1000?

08:03:49JdGordonI just tipped it back over to the point where gcc complains instead of the external script
08:04:24LloreanSo you didn't actually break anything more, you just made it more apparent that it's broken.
08:04:55amiconnThis usesless persistent settings thing now increased code size even more :(
08:05:14LinusNi wonder if the perhaps the persistence feature is worth it
08:05:14JdGordon:D morning mr grumpy :)
08:05:47LloreanIt does resolve a few common feature requests. I've seen this exact feature requested at least once, as well as the fact that it allows for a consistent safe boot volume level.
08:06:19LloreanI can't say whether it's worth it or not, but I do expect it to be reasonably popular among the masses.
08:06:24LinusNLlorean: i believed so too, but i couldn't find an exact match in flyspray
08:06:54amiconnI can't see a usage case where it would be useful, but perhaps it is, for someone :/
08:07:05LloreanLinusN: The request specifically for it was never posted to flyspray, I don't think. I do know that somewhere, someone told me (or the forums) that they wanted an option to be able to 'lock' features so that they reset upon reboot.
08:07:20LinusNamiconn: you don't usually see a use case for features you don't use yourself
08:07:25amiconnJdGordon: At least I think that when settings are converted to use tables it will become simpler and more compact to implement
08:08:21JdGordoneither way, when the settings are finished being moved there should be a bit more room to play with
08:08:27amiconnThen you don't need to store the settings strings which are persistent, but just store the indices
08:08:47LloreanThough another less code-intensive option is just having it load two .cfg files
08:08:52LloreanA second, persistent.cfg
08:08:58LloreanThat one is never written to, and loaded second.
08:09:21JdGordonnice and simple...
08:09:27LloreanYou get the exact same functionality with a somewhat simpler interface. ;)
08:09:58JdGordonthats a 2nd disk read tho at startup... will the speed difference be noticable?
08:10:35LloreanAs long as the disk isn't spun down, I rather doubt it.
08:10:50LloreanWith how long WPS loading takes, an extra single rather small file probably won't be measurable.
08:10:51*amiconn likes this 'second file' idea much better
08:11:41JdGordonok, we'll do that then, got a better name for the file than persistent.cfg tho?

08:30:59amiconnLlorean: [IDC]Dragon did, but it's not yet committed. Not the bootloader, but bootbox
08:31:53amiconnLinusN: This is because rockbox boot on a flashed archos is a bit more modular than on the swcodec targets
08:32:20Lloreanamiconn: Well, isn't "bootbox" the in-flash replacement bootloader, essentially? Or am I confusing my terms again?
08:32:24amiconnThe swcodec bootloader is the equivalent to our archos flash loader *
08:32:29amiconnplus* bootbox
08:32:48*Llorean goes to read the wiki
08:33:03amiconnOn archos, the flash loader is very tiny, because it has no lcd output and disk access code at all

08:36:20LinusNso some features will inevitably have to be excluded from the archos

08:37:01amiconnA smaller bootbox will give us some more room
08:37:28LinusNamiconn: how much?
08:37:38amiconnIt's an incompatible change for rombox.ucl though, because the load address is different

08:43:21DaRoosI had a problem with RB, so I had to format my unit with itunes, and start over. No problem.
08:43:41DaRoosI've been using "version 2" of the config, the one with -scan that's easier... howerver, I've got an odd problem.
08:44:06amiconnLinusN: starting 22:47
08:44:19DaRoosMy unit functions asnd plays fine, but randomally it "freezes" it's screen during play... I can make the lcd light up, and it keeps playing, but I *have* to reboot it to do anything. Anyone else seen this/
08:44:32LloreanTo translate, "the most recent released version of ipodpatcher" I'm guessing, since "config" doesn't mean much in regards to −−scan, and neither does "version 2" since I believe the reported version is 0.5 or 0.6

08:49:02DaRoosI don't know if this is related, but every now and then after adding music and updating the database, I'll play maybe 20 minutes of songs, and when I go to play the next one it freezes - not the whole of rockbox, but just the playback stops. If I try to play another song, sometimes it says file not found, sometimes playback just freezes again. To fix this, I have to restart the iPod. Just noting this because it happened again last night ><
08:49:23DaRoosWhat is "the database" you speak of?

08:56:27DaRoosllorean : no, progress doesn't update... just freezes screen.. but it keeps playing as normal, same volume and will even keep playing the next mp3's in the audiobook as normall.. just keeps going.
08:56:31GodEaterDaRoos: if ipodpatcher were the problem, you wouldn't even be running rockbox
08:56:33LloreanIt's hard to explain clearly, but basically the newest released version is the one with −−scan
08:56:58DaRoosI understand that ll.. some people in forums refer to it as "generation 2" of the loader or whatever
08:57:02LloreanIt's just that there was a 0.5 *before* the scan option, and I couldn't remember if the −−scan one was 0.5, or 0.6
08:57:24*Llorean has never seen anyone in the Rockbox forums refer to that as generation 2 of ipodpatcher.
08:57:29LloreanAnd ipodpatcher *isn't* the loader.
08:57:43GodEaterthere's the 0.6cvs version - but linuxstb *doesn't* want it in the hands of people who can't compile it themselves. He's said so.
08:57:58LloreanGodEater: Yeah, that really shouldn't be numbered 0.6
08:58:10GodEaterbesides, I *really* don't think it's an ipodpatcher issue
08:58:13LloreanThe current one should be 0.6 (or higher)
08:58:28GodEaterhow large is the mp3 DaRoos ?
08:58:29LloreanDaRoos: How old is the "really old" build you tried?
08:58:33DaRooscould it be a problem with the image it's loading? Should I use the old-school loader (the one with mroe steps) and those images?
08:58:39DaRoosabout 6 months...
08:58:53LloreanDaRoos: The "image" as you speak, is the actual bootloader.
08:58:56DaRoosI used to do a full save of my ipod for the fuck of it, every few months.. that's why I have so many old snapshots
08:59:04LloreanIt's very very very likely NOTHING to do with any part of the install process.
08:59:06DaRoosllorean : gotcha.
08:59:34DaRooswell, the "bootloader" is the latest "build" we download then, yes?
08:59:48LloreanThe bootloader is the file bootloader-ipodvideo.ipod
08:59:49*GodEater reads the latest "valley girl" english posts on the forums with slack-jawed disbelief
08:59:53DaRoosAh, gotcha.
08:59:59LloreanThe 'build' is Rockbox
09:00:16 Join brenton_ [0] (n=chatzill@
09:00:26DaRoosI'm wondering if i should try the old method with the old bootloader - or has the bootloader image NOT progressed over time?
09:00:40LloreanAll the bootloader does is moves Rockbox from the disk into RAM
09:00:55LloreanThe image you're using right now works for hundreds of other people just fine.

09:01:33LloreanYou can try to use the old method, but if it solves your problem, it just means that we're less likely to find out what the real problem was.
09:01:36DaRoosit's all kidns of mp3's god.. it doesn't amtter what mp3 file I play. Music, audiobooks, whatever
09:01:44LloreanYou may as well if you want to go through the hassle.
09:02:03LloreanIt could solve the problem, but it'd be really strange if it did, and I wouldn't be surprised to see it reemerge later.
09:02:14LloreanAs well, you'll need the newer bootloader version for when Dual Core support happens anyway
09:02:15amiconnLlorean: The bootloader also does some cop init stuff, so an old bootloader (which doesn't do this) might cause problems with newer rockbox builds
09:02:17DaRoosIf I use the latest method, how can I troubleshoot it now tho?
09:02:34GodEateramiconn speaks truth

09:02:35Lloreanamiconn: It shouldn't cause it with current builds, as far as I'm aware, but will once the COP is implemented in-rockbox.

09:04:30Bagderbrenton_: isn't that mentioned in the manual?
09:04:52Lloreanbrenton_: Rockbox doesn't support .sat files
09:04:53brenton_I wasn't sure. :\ I'm only 13 pages in.
09:04:58GodEaterdoes the frequency scaling issue cause a complete lock up ? Or does it just generate choppy sound ?
09:05:17LloreanGodEater: Complete lockup, and often an Illegal Instruction message or similar, if I recall
09:05:23Bagderbrenton_: AFAIU, you must retransfer them since the OF keeps them in ".sat" files that Rockbox doesn't know of

10:14:46webguest20Hehehe. There's a long thread in the UI forum about the 'left to WPS' feature. It's not implemented because it's not very consistent and because it would increase code size. And that despite of the fact that many voted for it. And then some obscure features (like the ~ in settings names) - which also increase code size - are implemented 'just so.' Where is the logic/consistency? :-)
10:15:07Lloreanwebguest20: That one immediately got unimplemented, if you notice.
10:15:40LloreanIt also added a NEW feature, rather than making a second button do the exact same thing as a button already did, anyway.
10:15:59LloreanSo, there's the logic for you, if you need it.
10:16:33JdGordonalso, everyone who has commit access is dead against that option :p
10:16:46LloreanThere might be one or two for it.
10:16:51LloreanI haven't polled them all.
10:17:30sneakumsA foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds.
10:17:50Lloreansneakums: Is that relevant?
10:19:40sneakumsJust a roundabout way of remarking that rockbox development doesn't let rigid consistency trump the merit of individual choices.
10:19:45tanqemerson or thoreau... i can't remmeber which
10:20:08sneakumsemerson, iirc
10:20:22Lloreansneakums: There are some cases of rampant consistency though, but it's usually well backed up.
10:20:29webguest20Llorean: what I meant is that code size doesn't seem to play a role when deciding whether a feature should be implemented
10:20:35midkayJdGordon: why'd you remove it!!
10:20:46sneakumscode size is one factor
10:20:55sneakumsif it were the only factor, rockbox would have zero lines of code and do nothing
10:21:01JdGordonmidkay: because, Llorean came up with an equally as good option
10:21:12JdGordon.. which didnt incur the code soze cost
10:21:22midkayoh. haha.
10:21:34midkayi just read the first like 4 words of your 10-word-or-so commit message.
10:21:40midkay*feels dumb*
10:22:16Lloreanmidkay: Yeah, I came up with a solution that was essentially one line of code. ;)
10:22:27Lloreanwebguest20: Code size VS what it adds is the issue.
10:22:57Lloreanwebguest20: When "what it adds" is "Making the UI inconsistent with the desired scheme, and makes a button do something there's already a button for" it really doesn't add much positive for any code size

10:26:06 Nick ^BeN^ is now known as Paprica (
10:26:30*Paprica says hey :)
10:26:32Lloreanwebguest20: Anyway, when you consider the fact that we've solved both the "Resume on startup can cause hearing damage for people who forget to set the volume" problem with just a single line of code, as well as introducing a lot of useful functionality, I'd say this feature fits very well with the size vs added functionality ratio.
10:27:12webguest20Llorean: but if there's an upper bound on size (because of some devices) then, at some point, features should be rejected regardless of whether/how useful they are
10:27:23Lloreanwebguest20: We've already past the upper bound.
10:27:34LloreanThere's no fixed limit, but there is a goal.
10:27:45LloreanFeatures can be added if they're considered to be worth enough vs the size cost.
10:27:54GodEaterand there's always the option of removing less well loved features in order to get new ones in

10:29:42bluebrotherwhy left-to-wps?
10:29:57Lloreanbluebrother: Because people can't be bothered to press the play button to get to the WPS.

10:30:06bluebrotherdoesn't make sense to me ... better use play-to-wps from the menu

10:32:12JdGordonbluebrother: haha no
10:32:26LloreanJdGordon: Two lines of code to repeat the functionality of the play button though
10:32:34Mikachuwhy does everything need an option?
10:32:35LloreanTwo lines that also break the existing screen hierarchy
10:32:42webguest20JdGordon: I don't know but I guess there's a patch in FS.
10:32:48*JdGordon not taking sides..
10:32:50LloreanBasically, "two lines to do something the core devs are likely to be against even if it cost 0 lines"
10:32:52bluebrotheroh, so the two lines are inside of the brackets? ;-)
10:32:57JdGordonjust saying it could feasibly be done in almost no code
10:33:03JdGordonbluebrother: yes
10:33:41LloreanYeah, it can be done with little code.
10:33:45LloreanBut it HAS to have an option.
10:33:52bluebrotherI'd love to have the menu more consitent ...
10:33:54LloreanBecause left-to-wps makes it much more difficult for blind users.
10:34:13JdGordonbluebrother: im working on the menu now... it will have play to go to wps like the tree
10:34:13webguest20Mikachu: because some people (e.g. visually impaired) wouldn't like it at all

10:34:31webguest20Ok, EOT for me
10:34:33markunwebguest20: wouldn't a root menu be more logical then the WPS at the root?
10:34:34bluebrothernice ...
10:35:14JdGordonmarkun: you mean a menu with the wps, tre, menu, rec screen, fm as options?
10:35:19markunJdGordon: yes
10:35:25markunand settings
10:35:29webguest20markun: EOT, request rejected :-)
10:35:40markunwebguest20: it's not really a request :)
10:35:47markunas I can code it myself
10:35:58JdGordonthat sound reasonable...
10:36:18bluebrotherwhile not having such a root menu looks a bit strange at the fist look I like it better to control that stuff using buttons and not having one
10:36:31Lloreanmarkun: The general idea right now is that Rockbox is filetree based, and the tree is the lowest level.
10:36:42JdGordonhighest level...
10:36:51markunWe've talked about it a few times. I think amiconn was ok if we made it possible to go to one of the items by default (like we do with the recording screen already)
10:36:59JdGordonyou go down into the options and other screens :p
10:37:13LloreanJdGordon: The other screens are on top of the filetree, that's why you can see them, and not it since it's beneath. :-P
10:37:22markunLlorean: I'll try to find the logs then
10:37:31bluebrotherwe should indeed remove the recording screen at startup and replace it with a arbitrary screen at startup option
10:37:32JdGordonits coz your in the northern emisphere :D its all backwards
10:37:51*Mikachu throws a snowball at JdGordon
10:38:10JdGordon... it melts before hitting me
10:38:17*bluebrother is also in the northern hemisphere and all looks the right way around
10:38:22Lloreanbluebrother: I can agree with that one. And remove "Resume on Startup" since that's basically "WPS"
10:38:53bluebrotherhaven't thought of that, but that's logical. Setting Resume on startup is wps :)
10:38:55webguest20bluebrother: IIRC there's a patch for this in FS
10:39:00Bagderwe should "flatten" the code for the screens first
10:39:20bluebrotherwebguest20: I know, but that's not in the core ;-)
10:39:21LloreanStill, I think there should be a "final" screen that Left takes you to.
10:39:26LloreanAnd it should be a screen upon which Left does nothing.
10:39:27Mikachuas long as you don't remove the functionality to resume at startup
10:39:47LloreanMikachu: Just choosing "WPS" as your startup screen would include resuming, I should hope, since you shouldn't see WPS without playback
10:39:47JdGordonBagder: how do you mean flatten?
10:40:02bluebrothersomething like "startup screen": wps (resume playback)
10:40:21BagderJdGordon: basically going to all screens from the same switch(), so that going to another means setting a variable and returning to the loop
10:40:29JdGordonah, yes
10:40:30webguest20bluebrother: what do you mean by 'core'?
10:40:50Bagderthen we could jump between any two screens with no fuss
10:40:53JdGordonatm dirbrowse() handles the whole thing... thats the place to start hacking.. whoever is up for it :p
10:40:55bluebrotherbtw, I played around with the runtime screen on the weekend as I always was annoyed it doesn't show as much information as possible
10:40:59Mikachuwebguest20: not in a plugin
10:41:00bluebrotherin terms of space
10:41:24JdGordonbluebrother: what else would you like on the screen?
10:41:26LloreanEven with flattened code, you still need a "final" screen. With left-to-wps, you'll always have the issue for blind users.
10:41:27bluebrotherthe only problem when showing all is that you can't reset the values using select.
10:42:15bluebrotherJdGordon: I modified the screen to better adapt to multi screen players and show both top time and current time if there is enough room
10:42:20webguest20Mikachu: why should that be in a plugin? IIRC, the patch did replace two options (resume/record on startup) with just one
10:42:23JdGordonbluebrother: is that screen spoken at all?
10:42:30Mikachuwebguest20: i was just explaining what core means
10:42:31bluebrotherI don't think so
10:42:38bluebrotherbut I haven't tried
10:43:08JdGordonmaybe if its spoken, both options could be put in a list (with height 2), and pressing off on the selected item resets it..
10:43:09markunLlorean: wouldn't the root menu be the final screen?
10:43:21JdGordonnice and easy, very painful for the lind tho if its not spoken
10:43:46Lloreanmarkun: A root menu would work fine. It just needs to be, in my opinion, as screen where "Left" doesn't do anything. A stopping point, essentially.
10:44:01*JdGordon likes the idea of a start screen... but it needs a catchy line for the title :p
10:44:04bluebrotherI tried using gui_synclist but failed to regularly update the current time entry
10:44:07JdGordon"welcome to rockbox" is lame
10:44:22bluebrother"now rock this box" :P
10:44:28markunLlorean: sorry, I fail to see what the problem is. Are you proposing some other screen could be the root as well?
10:44:45Lloreanmarkun: There's a large population that wants the WPS to be the leftmost screen.
10:44:51LloreanWhich is what sparked this whole discussion.
10:45:16 Part webguest20 ("Happy IRCing")
10:45:22markunLlorean: ok, I get it now
10:45:38markunand menu would bring you to the 'root' menu then from the WPS?
10:46:03LloreanWell, right now, all they want is left to go to WPS from the filetree.
10:46:21Bagder... new svn version is released
10:46:30linuxstbIMO, it doesn't make sense for the WPS to be the left-most screen because it's only displayed when music is playing - unless that's changed of course.
10:46:35bluebrotherI still think we should make it logical, not the way everyone expects it because its unlogical in about all other players
10:46:51markunLlorean: I could ask in the thread what they think about the root menu idea and if they still would want the WPS to be the root
10:47:19Lloreanmarkun: The argument for it is that Left is a lot easier to press than the Play button.
10:47:32LloreanOr whatever button "Resumes" playback
10:47:34markunw1ll14m|away: I see your idea got implemented after all :)
10:47:40JdGordonthe problem with a rot menu is that the play button would be used for it.. so its at least 2 presses to get from the tree to the wps, instead of one now
10:47:55Lloreanlinuxstb: Left would resume in the cases music is stopped, supposedly. =/
10:48:15bluebrotherBagder: I just noticed a "mailing list etiquette" link right below the "mailing lists" menu entry on the svn homepage. Maybe adding something to rb would be helpful too?
10:48:17markunJdGordon: yes, that's a drawback, but I think navigation would be much more consistent
10:48:38Bagderbluebrother: a good idea
10:49:12LloreanJdGordon: Why wouldn't Play still resume playback?
10:49:25LloreanYou could always get back to the root menu by pressing "Menu"
10:49:42JdGordonah, well thats true
10:50:41markunLlorean: do you think the items in the root menu should remeber their positions? ie if you go to the root from the filebrowser with MENU and you go back to the filebrower you will end up in the same dir or the root?
10:51:34JdGordonprobably remember
10:51:39JdGordonnot the menu tho...
10:51:50*JdGordon would like the plugin browser in the root menu also
10:52:04Lloreanmarkun: I think it's only important that the last place you were remember its position.
10:52:16markunJdGordon: yes, I don't think it belongs in the settings menu
10:52:21LloreanFrom anywhere "Menu" would summon the root menu screen, and pressing it again would banish it (in case you bumped it) restoring you to where you were
10:52:26amiconnLlorean: Left == resume would be highly illogical...
10:52:40Lloreanamiconn: I agree wholeheartedly. I just stated that it's what the left-to-wps hordes want

10:54:52JdGordonah, dw.. yeah, i just looked at my menu changes, and static'ing 3 3 variables would be enough to do it
10:54:54amiconnLlorean: Also, if you say Left would resume if music is stopped - what would happen if there is no resume position??

10:55:14JdGordonamiconn: same as now "nothing lo resume"
10:55:21markunamiconn: they probably want a empty WPS screen then :)
10:55:31Mikachuwhile procrastinating screen
10:56:20webguest20I must chime in :-) IMHO, left-to-WPS should only work if music is playing. Since then the file browser is like a menu. If there's no playback, the file browser is the main screen. Left should NOT start playback.
10:56:43markunwebguest20: no, the root menu will be the main screen :)
10:57:05amiconnLeft to wps is illogical imo, and it makes navigation harder for the blind
10:57:27JdGordon... if this happens, please give the wps item a better name..
10:57:37amiconnwebguest20: With your approach, navigation structure would change depending on playback state
10:59:16safetydanamiconn, I haven't worked on langv2 cleanup lately, but I was just about to start looking at it again
10:59:37webguest20amiconn: yes. But it's the same when bringing up the menu. When the music is not playing, you go to the file browser when you're leaving the menu. And when it's playing, you go to the WPS.
11:00:13webguest20amiconn: and if the browser is called from the WPS I feel like calling a menu. That's my whole point.
11:00:16Lloreanwebguest20: Actually, that's not true
11:00:27Lloreanwebguest20: If you enter the menu from the filetree while music is playing, you return to the filetree
11:01:12markunJdGordon: what I also would like (but it will probably not be easy) is to be able to go to the root menu from a running plugin, add a few songs to the playlist and then go back..
11:01:15webguest20Llorean: and if from WPS while music is playing? Then you go to WPS.
11:01:42Lloreanwebguest20: Yes, because you called the menu from the WPS.
11:01:51amiconnwebguest20: That's not true. Leaving the menu always brings you back where you came from.
11:01:57amiconnThat's not a structure change
11:01:59LloreanThere is the filetree, then you call the WPS, then you call the Menu, so clearly each is on top of the one before.
11:02:12JdGordonmarkun: that is possible now... but the plugin needs to be changed to a tsr slightly
11:02:22Mikachuit's hard to guess that the wps is on top of the filetree from just using rockbox
11:02:24Mikachuit could just as well be on the side
11:02:51Bagderbluebrother: now check the top of the rockbox mailing list page
11:03:05markunYes, I also visualise the WPS and filetree as running side by side
11:03:35webguest20Ok, I see. But I still feel like calling menu when I bring up the file browser from WPS. I have to change my mind.
11:03:37 Part webguest20

11:04:58scorchenow we just need someone to bring up malloc
11:05:00markundepends on how long you have been away
11:05:08linuxstbI've never liked the "select" button exiting the WPS back to the file browser though - which is why I don't think people think of it as exiting.
11:05:09scorcheabout 5 days?
11:05:20markunlinuxstb: it doesn't on the gigabeat :)
11:05:30Mikachuthere's not many others to choose from on the ipod
11:05:38markunthere we have 1 button to switch between WPS and filebrowser
11:05:43linuxstbIt's NAVI on the irivers IIRC.
11:05:50markunselect is used for pause in the WPS
11:06:45LloreanJdGordon: Responded in the thread.
11:06:59JdGordonyour quick :p
11:07:42JdGordonmay as well bring the discussion here..
11:07:44amiconnlinuxstb: It's not on the archos recorders and player either :P
11:07:57linuxstbSo it's just the h1x0 and ipods...
11:08:02linuxstb(and h3x0)
11:08:05JdGordonanyone apposed to a defaults.cfg being loaded if config.cfg is not present... or a settings reset was called ?
11:08:10amiconnThey use ON to toggle between browser and wps
11:08:28linuxstbSo who chose NAVI for the irivers?
11:08:30tanqhow long should rockbox take to create a database for 30+gig of music
11:08:35 Quit aliask ("Chatzilla 0.9.76 [Firefox]")
11:08:47LloreanBasically, here's the pitch:
11:09:02tanqever since I tried to intialize the database it has never worked.. it always says not ready.
11:09:16linuxstbtanq: Have you shutdown and restarted?
11:09:19LloreanWhen Rockbox is first booted, if config.cfg does not exist it loads defaults.cfg
11:09:21tanqseveral times..
11:09:25Lloreandefaults.cfg is also loaded if settings are cleared
11:09:43linuxstbSo what if a user breaks their default.cfg ?
11:09:45LloreanThis allows easy-to-package target-specific defaults, as well as a user being able to store a "known good" setting in case they choose to clear settings later, so that a clear isn't a full wipe
11:09:56LinusNi like it
11:09:59LloreanIf default.cfg is removed, you get the current hard-coded non-target-specific defaults
11:10:08Mikachuwhat if the default.cfg exists but gives a bad config?
11:10:18linuxstbBut isn't the ability to load any .cfg file good enough for users restoring "known good" settings?
11:10:31 Part norbusan
11:10:35Lloreanlinuxstb: Well, it's more or less meant to be an easy method to package target-specific settings.
11:10:40LloreanIt just has an added bonus of that.
11:10:58linuxstbI can't see what target-specific settings we would want, apart from font.
11:11:10amiconnWhy default.cfg when we need built-in defaults anyway?
11:11:11linuxstbAnd then if the user breaks default.cfg, they lose the target-specific defaults.
11:12:21amiconnI don't see why the built-in defaults can't be target specific
11:12:26LloreanThey can be.
11:12:37 Quit miepchen^schlaf (Read error: 113 (No route to host))
11:12:49JdGordonLlorean: doing this would incur a disk spinup if settings are reset...
11:12:56JdGordonunless dircache is on
11:12:59LloreanI just kinda liked the idea of packaging them separate and giving the user the option to have settings they can reset to.
11:13:14LloreanJdGordon: I'd wager 99% of resets occur at bootup
11:13:23linuxstbBut a user has always been able to save settings to a .cfg for restoring to.
11:13:36JdGordonthen defaults.cfg should only be run at boot, and not a regulr reset
11:13:48LloreanI wouldn't mind that.
11:14:00Mikachuit's at boot up you would want to reset to hardcoded settings, if default.cfg is broken
11:14:03LloreanBut then really a user *can* just click a .cfg file
11:14:20linuxstbIt just seems to be getting too complex - we have the "real" config.cfg, a file for persistent settings, and now a default cfg, plus the built-in defaults...
11:14:37Lloreanlinuxstb: I came up with the idea before suggesting fixed.cfg
11:14:53LloreanReally it doesn't have too much use.

11:15:55 Join Wiwie [0] (
11:16:04LloreanHonestly, now that it's been talked about, it's one of my ideas I'm not so much in favour of. :)
11:16:21linuxstbI still prefer the suggestion of a max_volume_on_boot setting, as that's the only setting people have asked to be persistent, and means users can set it easily via the UI, rather than editing a text file.
11:16:25LloreanAlso, I've a headache after trying to explain the concept of keeping patches to a single task to FS #6095
11:16:38*Bagder agress on the max_volume_on_boot setting
11:16:48LloreanBagder: The fixed.cfg covers that though.
11:17:01linuxstbYes, but inconveniently.
11:17:03Bagderyeah, but not with a gui
11:17:05LloreanThat's true.
11:17:21Bagderand not with a max, it would be a fixed
11:17:29LloreanI remember someone asking about having shuffle be able to have a default boot setting as well.

11:18:27linuxstbI'm not against having a fixed.cfg, but I don't think it's a nice solution for the more commonly requested max volume.
11:18:40LloreanI don't think it's an ideal solution.
11:19:21JdGordoni think its cleaner than actually adding the code to handle a boot volume setting
11:19:24LloreanYou could just have a "Volume on Boot" option rather than 'max' and save that *to* fixed.cfg
11:19:46Mikachuthat if anything sounds like a hack
11:19:59JdGordonvery much so

11:20:14safetydanyo, Bagder, how come this snippet doesn't work? It just results in $feat on the command line to genlang?
11:20:59tucozbluebrother: as strictly speaking, the manual is not built wit \LaTeX

12:14:57bluebrotherI don't see a reason, but I though maybe that would be nice to indicate it as daily.
12:15:02Bagderbut the svn builds are built within a "real" svn checked-out source root, while the dailies are not
12:15:04preglowSoap: what, for mp3s, you mean?
12:15:28Soapmp3s / FLACs, whatever format, yes.
12:15:43Soapfiles created from early CDs
12:16:11preglowwell, how would we know they need deemphasis?
12:16:11markunSoap: I think the DAC in the irivers had an option to use deemphasis
12:16:16Soapor would that ammount to a multi-band software EQ?
12:16:17preglowafaik, only mp3 can flag that it is needed
12:16:36preglowdeemphasis is a pretty simple 2nd order iir filter, afaik
12:16:43Soappreglow: not that rockbox would do it automaticly, but a user switch.
12:16:44preglowcomparable to one eq band

12:17:22BagderMikachu: nopes
12:17:39Bagderalthough we should perhaps consider doing that instead
12:18:23Bagderalthough building on a single host makes some things a bit more controlled
12:18:27Zagorhow about the best of the latest builds?
12:18:39Zagoras measured by the build table
12:18:57BagderI don't think the score is a good way to indicate good builds
12:19:32preglowit sure isn't
12:19:42Soapcue sheets can support a flag called "pre" which labels a track as having preemphasis.
12:19:56Zagorit would at least avoid making daily builds out of someones "oops" commit
12:20:09preglowSoap: yes
12:20:24BagderZagor: but would make lots of more tricky logic for the script
12:20:54Zagorwould it?
12:21:08Bagderyes, for example they are built on different hosts
12:21:13 Join pondlife [0] (n=Miranda@rockbox/developer/pondlife)

12:21:50preglowdoing a quick google for filter specifics, but can't find any

12:46:27jbamarkun, i don't know
12:46:53Mikachuaren't caches usually meant to make things faster?

17:58:28pixelmabluebrother: ... first: since svn (I think) I noticed that compiling the manual (pdf) is processed twice. I'm just wondering why
17:59:18bluebrotherthe manual needs to be processed twice because of the references. Latex can't generate the references in the first run as it doesn't know the pages
17:59:30bluebrotherbut that has been present before as its typical to latex
17:59:56pixelmaok.. then I didn't notice before for some reason
18:00:22bluebrotherif there are labels that have changed latex produces a warning, and the makefile will then re-run it
18:01:17HdaackdaA couple of questions 1). Can the playlist display title names instead of filenames? (2) Can it be induced to add only *.mp3 files etc? (instead of mp4 which rockbox cant play)
18:02:11pixelmamy second question is - I wanted to compile an html-version (compiling under cygwin) and it complained about "htlatex command not found". What do I need to install or do to make it work?
18:02:26bluebrotherHdaackda: 1. no
18:02:42Hdaackdaand i guess 2. is no too

19:21:16tucozhcs, thanks :)

19:22:40amiconnAnd you can't even apply the workaround for this special gcc version only - it shares its version number with correctly working ones

21:34:11Bagdermattzz: right, but I don't host any of the mi4 files that tool gets, I believe
21:34:36mattzzAh, so if I intercept some files from the autoupdater it could be risky?

22:08:57GodEaterre: the rockboy post in the forums
22:09:09GodEaterI don't think the exact answer to his question *is* in the ipod faq
22:09:13GodEaterat least, I can't find it
22:09:23GodEaterhence the iriver link I gave him
22:09:24LloreanGodEater: Ah well, it's in the Manual and the Wiki page.
22:09:48linuxstbAre the ipod rockboy buttons documented anywhere? I looked the other day and couldn't find them.
22:09:50GodEaterit's in the manual too ? Hmm - I'll have to re-read it
22:10:14LloreanGodEater: The manual has it in the "Viewers" section.
22:10:21LloreanMost people only look in plugins, and don't bother with an actual search
22:10:37LloreanThey also don't read the header for the Viewers section so even if they find it, they don't get that it's launched differently
22:10:44LloreanAlso, as a final note, it's now in the IpodFAQ
22:10:55GodEaterI've found the rockboy section in the manual
22:10:58Lloreanlinuxstb: If they are documented, I'm about 80% sure they're outdated.
22:10:59GodEaterunder viewers as you say
22:11:03Mikachumaybe you could call them file plugins or something instead
22:11:04GodEaterbut it doesn't say where to put the roms
22:11:22LloreanGodEater: Yes, because it doesn't matter where you put the ROMs. If you read the definition of Viewers, that should be apparent.
22:11:28GodEaterah of course
22:11:29GodEatersilly me
22:11:31LloreanThe problem is, few people read the definition of viewers.
22:11:35linuxstbI think the problem is that Rockboy uses the wheel-position touches, which don't have macros in the manual...
22:11:45*GodEater beats his head on the counter
22:11:59Lloreanlinuxstb: I believe the manual says you need to hold Select to bring up the menu, and I *think* that it's a hold-toggle now.
22:12:00*Mikachu puts a soft cloth on the counter
22:12:11LloreanGodEater: recent post regarding cygwin?
22:12:14linuxstbI can't remember (and I implemented them...)
22:12:26*GodEater hunts for it
22:12:36Mikachuare you sure it wasn't me?
22:12:50LloreanYeah, the real control is a hold trigger toggle
22:13:14linuxstbMikachu: You're talking about Rockboy? I think I used your wheel patch, but I don't think you patched Rockboy - as it didn't run on the Nano at that time.
22:13:16LloreanGodEater: Too late, he fixed it.

22:27:25tomallinuxstb: not necessarily, maybe linked to a different address than other codecs

22:50:14preglowthey're the same thing
22:50:23linuxstb_Mikachu: Yes. I think A52 is the name given to it by the American Television Standards Committee (ATSC). ac3 is probably Dolby's name for it.
22:50:24 Join anathema [0] (
22:50:45linuxstb_The ATSC have published the standard, but it's probably patented by Dolby....
22:51:15Mikachui wonder how hard it is to vorbis encode a multichannel ac3 stream...
22:51:24Mikachunot that i have more than two speakers :)
22:51:43linuxstb_You're suggesting a lossy->lossy conversion? :)
22:52:07Mikachuac3 streams on dvds are usually quite high bitrate
22:52:14Mikachuand dts, is that just another standard?
22:52:18Mikachui saw that on one dvd
22:52:21linuxstb_That's different.
22:52:27Mikachuthe only difference i could hear is the track was much louder :)
22:52:33saratogaDTS is like a less efficient AC3
22:52:48saratogathough both are at such high bitrates, that they're transparent
22:52:53LloreanDTS is not just a less efficient AC3
22:52:59LloreanDTS also supports higher sample rates.
22:53:01preglowthey're not really the same at all
22:53:03hcsyay, I have a real name
22:53:15saratogayes they're competing formats
22:53:19BagderI forgot to add you there previously
22:53:25linuxstb_But aren't they both from Dolby?
22:53:31LloreanIn many cases there's a quite audible difference between AC3 and DTS on my home system.
22:53:51preglowsmall wonder
22:53:58preglowac3 is a transform codec, dts is not
22:54:33LloreanThough my receiver seems to play with the bass whether I want it to or not. =/

22:55:25saratogathe levels are going to be different most likely
22:55:34Hotfusionyeah I love my surround
22:55:37saratogayou're probably not going to be able to ABX them though, once they're level matched
22:55:41*linuxstb_ spots a dtsdec.c in ffmpeg...

22:55:50Mikachuyeah i could play it in mplayer
22:56:34dan_aDoes anyone know of any reasons why a 4G greyscale iPod would never unboost?

22:58:56dan_aHmph. This makes testing the patches in FS #6095 a little tricky
23:00:23tucozBagder: do you know what happens in the At&t case?
23:00:28preglowlinuxstb_: it depends on another lib, afaik
23:00:36Bagdertucoz: nothing I guess
23:00:43linuxstb_preglow: Yes, I just spotted that it didn't actually contain a decoder....

23:03:14linuxstb_libdca/dts seems nicely fixed-point.
23:03:34linuxstb_It seems to be based on liba52.
23:05:10preglowlinuxstb_: have you actually looked at the code? the configure script used to incorrectly have a fixed point option
23:05:36tomalCompiling libmad with -O and -Os seems to give the same codec.

23:09:57dan_aAh. If there is a .voice file present then it runs at 100% boost.
23:12:21 Join Thundercloud__ [0] (n=thunderc@
23:13:02EbErTdoes the tagnavi.config file need to be updated every time?
23:13:51amiconndan_a: There's a problem with unboosting since I don't know when
23:14:00BiptoNlinuxstb_: did you use a playlist or just start playing music from a folder?
23:14:04amiconnThe boost counter isn't zero after booting
23:14:19amiconnThat's on *all* swcodec targets which have cpu scaling
23:14:30tucozbluebrother: for the logs. When you run make on the manual now, it complains about a missing file (...platform/ This is because the TOOLSDIR is pointing to manual/platform instead of the tools dir. I do not know how to fix this, but i am sure you know.
23:14:35linuxstb_BiptoN: Just from a folder.
23:14:35amiconnNobody seems to have an idea how to fix it...
23:15:15dan_aamiconn: The boost tracking work should help with that, shouldn't it?
23:15:34 Part tucoz
23:15:37amiconnIt's possible that this only applies when a voice file is present - I have voice files installed on all my targets
23:16:13dan_aThat seems to be the case - turning off voice menus didn't help, but taking off the voice file did
23:16:30linuxstb_I've never noticed the boosting problem - and I don't have any voice files...
23:16:55amiconnIt's one reason why I don't actually use my swcodec targets often
23:17:09amiconnAtm I do use my archos recorder like 95% of the time

23:33:13linuxstb_The thing that confuses me about this problem is that some builds seem to work a lot more reliably than others - for no apparent reason.
23:35:07dan_aMy gut feeling is that it's something like trying to reclock the PLL too soon after the last change.
23:35:27Lloreandan_a: That's actually kinda what my "I know nothing about the problem" sense was saying today.

23:36:53Bagderlucky me
23:37:03dan_aI think that's why I'm starting to see problems on the 3g that were not there before - as more optimisations go in, it is boosting and unboosting more frequently
23:37:05HotfusionI have to say rockbox does get good battery life on my mp3 player. I ran it a couple of hours the day before yesterday 1-2 hours. Then yesterday I accidentally ran it fro 5pm to 6am non stop. And it still had 4 hours left
23:37:08Hotfusionvery nice
23:37:28dan_aHotfusion: Which player?
23:37:35Hotfusionmy X5L iAudio
23:37:54HotfusionI turend on my car this morning and it was playing
23:37:59HotfusionI was like dang it's still going
23:38:15amiconnX5L is built for good battery life
23:38:17linuxstb_dan_a: IIRC, hcs wrote a patch which kept the PLL clocked at the same speed, but just selected and deselected it - switching between 24Mhz and 75MHz. That seemed to work for him and me, but then others reported freezes...
23:38:32amiconnI'd expect it to go for 30+ hours per charge
23:39:01dan_alinuxstb_: That's the one I've just built to test on my 4g greyscale
23:39:24Hotfusionthe two separate batteries in it are still good. But I'd hate to replace them finding replacements, measurements of battery and mAh may be difficult
23:39:26Hotfusionbut not impossible
23:40:05dan_aI think that the coprocessor might get woken up sometimes too. MrH's document seemed to suggest that, and the fact that running with a kernel on the COP helps would point that way.
23:40:18 Join norbusan [0] (
23:40:45linuxstb_Yes, my feeling is that the COP is involved somewhere - as the PP5020s seem to have more COP problems than the other targets.
