00:15:04pseudoXh4Well.. would you happen to know what platform they use for the basis of their development?
00:17:12linuxstbRockbox is developed with gcc.
00:17:41pseudoXh4I mean.
00:17:42pseudoXh4Er.
00:17:47pseudoXh4What operating system?
00:17:59linuxstbRockbox is the operating system....
00:18:09pseudoXh4It's a PC operating system too?
00:18:16 Join hcs [0] (n=hcs@rockbox/contributor/hcs)
00:18:24linuxstbNo, but the PC operating system is irrelevant.
00:18:36linuxstbSome people use Windows, some Linux, some Mac OS X, some BSD...
00:19:11linuxstbBut under Windows you need Cygwin. i.e. any Unix-like environment.
00:19:42pseudoXh4Well.
00:20:17pseudoXh4I'm having problems with my Sansa on BSD, and wondered if any of the Rockbox developers happened to use BSD, as I get LUN0 locked on my screen when accessing my Sansa in recovery mode...
00:20:32 Part Llorean
00:21:32linuxstbSorry, I can't help with that (I don't have a Sansa, or BSD).

00:52:57NanoUserProblem: My Nano doesn't have the Mpeg player. Or does the Rockbox already install that?
00:53:20dionoeait installs it
00:53:24Soaphow old is your copy of rockbox, NanoUser ?
00:53:47DataGhostlinuxstb do you know if there is any page with information about what has been tried on the 2G nano (and failed)?
00:53:53DataGhostSo I'm not doing something that's already been tried
00:53:59NanoUserI got it off the current builds page
00:54:20Soapok, then you do have the mpegplayer, NanoUser
00:54:25Soapcd rockbox
00:54:25DataGhostI think I just found a valid FAT partition inside the nano 2G firmware
00:54:27Soapoops
00:54:32DataGhostlooks like some resource thing
00:54:36DataGhostwhich does not give me much hope
00:54:43NanoUserOkay
00:54:51NanoUserIn terminal I would assume
00:55:06Soapno no, ignore my wrong window "cd rockbox"
00:55:23linuxstbDataGhost: The firmware partition looks very similar to the other ipods, apart from the main firmware (OSOS) image being encrypted. The IPL wiki has good descriptions of that.
00:55:29NanoUserOh.
00:55:40DataGhostyes I know that linuxstb :)
00:55:55DataGhostbut I need to know what's been figured out about that
00:56:00DataGhostlike that FAT partition
00:56:17SoapNanoUser: you do have the mpegplayer. It does not show up in the pluggins list, as is explained in the wiki page you said you read, because it is a viewer - simply "play" the mpeg file from the Rockbox file browser, making sure your "view" settings are set to "all" or "supported" not "music"
00:56:17DataGhostso I'm not doing useless work which has already been done :)
00:56:18linuxstbThat's what I mean - earlier ipods have a FAT image (5g and later versions of the Nano).

00:56:52DataGhostyes but I found a seemingly valid FAT16 partition (at least header) in the firmware image
00:56:55DataGhostnamed IPODRESOURC
00:57:09linuxstbYes... That's the RSRC image.
00:57:16NanoUser*looks for view page*
00:57:18DataGhostso that's been figured out already?
00:57:43SoapDataGhost: I just sold my nano 2nd gen today - don't go cracking it anytime soon! ;)
00:57:46linuxstbYes. It's the same as the 1st gen Nano - that's why I'm pointing you to existing documentation.
00:57:53DataGhostSoap I don't even own one :P
00:57:58DataGhostah ok

01:36:42NanoUserlol
01:36:48linuxstbIt's not just the usual scroll speed varying with CPU speed?
01:36:55NanoUserStill tryin to figure out rockieboxie
01:37:27decayedcellWell, I remember on the last Cygwin compile that the scroll would lag and the CPU wouldn't boost to compensate
01:37:54decayedcellWith today's compile, the CPU seems to boost a bit and that makes it less laggy, it does still lag a bit but not as much

01:52:31dan_aIt breaks recording, there have been a few reports of the earlier versions not working, and I want to put in runtime detection of whether there is a kernel on the COP. I also want to try killing the main thread on the COP as per your suggestion.

02:01:33saratogado we have a theory about why the COP patch doesn't decrease boost much?
02:01:38preglowdan_a: really now
02:03:05Slasherisaratoga: audio decoding is not load balanced, so at least one core needs to be boosted as much as before
02:03:18Slasheribut ui can be run on separate core without lag
02:03:30saratogaso basically the COP just helps if you try and do more then pure audio decoding?
02:03:38Slasheriyes
02:03:45decayedcell_Slasheri: would running the UI on the separate core help with scroll lag?
02:04:05saratogathe current setup is codec on one core, everything else on the other?
02:04:09Slasheridecayedcell_: with properly implemented COP support, it should totally eliminate that
02:04:10aliaskWould it be possible to split audio decoding to multiple threads to balance the load?
02:04:23*decayedcell_ jaw drops
02:04:26Slasheri(not not before i commit the patch to the gui list code)
02:05:47Mikachui don't think anyone has bothered to write a threaded mp3 decoder
02:05:59Slasherithat gui list code patch is almost commit ready, but i still have to figure out a few things if there is a better way to implement those
02:06:11BigMacAlright just checked the manual and still have no idea, what is cop, I haven't updaterd my build in a few months
02:06:28Mikachuco-processor
02:06:30linuxstbSlasheri: Will that be separate to the ipod acceleration patch?
02:06:35saratogai don't think its possible to effectively thread an mp3 decoder since the spec is more or less serialized
02:06:45Slasherilinuxstb: yes, scrollwheel patch is a separate thing
02:06:47saratogaat least its not possible to thread an encoder, at least not without disableing various features
02:07:04pregloweven if threading decoding was possible: forget it
02:07:08Slasherigui list optimizations affects all targets
02:07:15preglowit would mean effectively rewriting our codecs from scratch
02:07:33saratogaso to be clear, we have the codec on one core, everything else on the other?
02:07:39saratogaor is it more complicated
02:07:46MikachuSlasheri: does that include the "dont redraw the whole screen when doing paged scrolling" patch?
02:08:01decayedcell_Mikachu which FS# is that?
02:08:09dan_asaratoga: At the moment, codec on one core
02:08:16Mikachudecayedcell_: don't know offhand
02:08:25BigMacSo I should proobably reinstall the bootloader on my 5g right?
02:08:27Slasheribut i am still not sure if that is a clean way to implement it: currently i have in scheduler a new routine queue_count that retuns the number of pending events in the queue. In gui list code i check if queue_count(&button_queue) > some_constant and then activate the optimizations
02:08:29Mikachuit doesn't apply to current svn anyway
02:08:38Slasherithat works fine, but might not be the best way to implement it
02:09:07SlasheriMikachu: yes, basically that is just that (improved version of it)
02:09:08preglowdoesn't sound like the cleanest thing ever, no
02:09:12preglowbut i don't have any better ideas
02:09:40BigMac?
02:10:05 Quit decayedcell (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
02:10:13SlasheriMikachu: basically it just redraws the changed content of the screen, and when pending button events increases too much, we start dropping frames (not redraw screen every time)
02:10:19linuxstbBigMac: Does your current bootloader have white text on a black background?
02:10:36Mikachuah, i remember some talk about that
02:10:51Slasheripreglow: i also disabled the automatic paged scrolling, so now the cursor stays on top/bottom and it seems like the list is scrolling very fast
02:11:07Slasheriat those speeds one can't even notice that not every frame is not drawn
02:11:12decayedcell_http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/4817 appears to be like Barry's common bootloader but for LCD scrolling?
02:12:05MikachuSlasheri: now you just have to draw that huge letter in the middle of the screen too and you're set
02:12:18preglowSlasheri: good, good
02:12:24preglowSlasheri: really looking forward to seeing this commited
02:12:43decayedcell_I think a lot of people are preglow :D
02:12:55Mikachui think just one person is preglow
02:13:08BigMaclinuxstb: nope
02:13:11Slasheripreglow: if you think that approach of calling queue_count from the gui code is ok, i could commit that quite soon
02:13:20Slasherii don't have either a better solution to do it
02:13:24linuxstbBigMac: Then yes, you should upgrade.
02:13:47preglowMikachu: there's always postglow, but he's not exactly trying to be preglow, i think
02:14:00BigMacOk, but is their a page that explains the changes and such and what has improved?
02:14:37linuxstbNope.
02:15:30BigMacOk well can someone explain why I would want a co processor boot if it works without it?

02:18:31BigMacAh ok and will reinstalling the bootloader require deletion of all of my files on my ipod?
02:19:05linuxstbNo, but you should restore the backup of your firmware partition first, and then follow the installation instructions in the manual.

02:46:36preglowdoesn't have to be at the exact same time, does it?

02:47:00dan_alinuxstb: I've tried setting a flag in a variable held in IRAM to cause the COP to jump to 0x0, but that hasn't worked.
02:47:05Soul-SlayerI read in the FS for the KoCOP patch it was only supposed to provide a framework to allow for things to go onto the COP, what does it use on the COP now? Audio codecs?
02:47:30dan_aMy next test will be to use the mailboxes for passing a message that gets handled by an interrupt
02:48:22dan_aSoul-Slayer: There scope of that task has increased a bit! We're now running the audio codec thread on the COP (to prove that the framework is useful)
02:48:57Soul-SlayerAnd I understand it's been reasonably successful so far?
02:50:19dan_aNot as successful as we'd hoped, as the codec and audio threads seem to be lockstepped to some extent (i.e. moving one of them to its own processor doesn't make everything work faster.) But the concept works fine, and the MpegPlayer plugin successfully makes use of the COP
02:51:01Soul-SlayerProgress is progress though :).

02:52:36linuxstbIt depends what you mean by synchronization trouble. Video too fast or too slow, or the right speed, but out of sync?
02:53:02preglowdan_a: tried moving both?
02:53:15preglowwould probably need a sprinkling of proper mutexes to make it work
02:53:47pregloww1ll14m: there?
02:53:48Soul-SlayerI find it hard to tell whether the video is running at the right speed or not, but audio always tends to finish a lot faster than the video, so I imagine the video is running slightly slower.

03:03:25TrueJournalsyeah

03:03:41BigMacBecause we couldn't acsess the chip apple uses for h.264 (i believe the wolfenstein chip or something similar)
03:04:02linuxstbWe still don't, and mpegplayer isn't really for the 5g.
03:04:02BigMacwell any other major updates from about 3 months or so ago
03:04:22BigMacIt doesn't work on it?
03:04:45TrueJournalsno, mpegplayer works on it... but it doesn't use the iPod's chip
03:04:48decayedcellBigMac its a Broadcom BC something
03:04:52TrueJournalsit just uses the CPU to decode video
03:05:13*linuxstb thought BigMac was going to read the page...

03:05:23BigMacWell why is it not really for the 5g
03:05:31linuxstbRead the page...
03:05:58linuxstb"NOTE: mpegplayer does all video and audio decoding using your device's main CPU. It does not use any special video decoding hardware such as the Broadcom Video Processor found in the ipod Video. mpegplayer therefore performs very badly on such devices in comparison with the manufacturer's original firmware."

03:08:08BigMacOk
03:08:18dan_aBut I'm working on it
03:11:11Soul-Slaye1Does it currently increase performance at all?
03:11:38linuxstbYes, by a lot.
03:12:28TrueJournalsI think most people who use it see an increase
03:12:44TrueJournalsalthough, there are scattered reports of it actually giving the opposite effect
03:12:45linuxstbThe COP patch allows mpegplayer to run the video thread on the COP, and the audio thread on the main CPU. This gives playback speeds the same as when mpegplayer was just decoding video and no audio.
03:13:09linuxstbOr are we talking Rockbox in general?
03:13:16TrueJournalsI duno :-\
03:13:43TrueJournalsdan_a: Is it easy to move any thread to the COP, or is there a whole complicated coding process to go through?

03:15:18BigMacOk I just downloaded it yesterday but I will again I guess
03:15:56dan_aTrueJournals: To move a thread over, you call create_thread_on_core(COP, ...) instead of create_thread(...) - but you need to make sure that any data that is shared across the two cores does not get cached by the processors, which either means careful flushing and invalidating of cache or using IRAM
03:16:29dan_aKoCOP8 doesn't work on iPod G3 :(

03:58:46TrueJournalsoh
03:58:55TrueJournalsbut do you use the KoCOP patch?
03:59:09SoapI would open one, run it clear through, record the FPS, reset the player (to create a level playing ground) and test another encode.
03:59:24SoapMe and the KOP patch are best friends.
03:59:44TrueJournalslol

04:34:47TrueJournals*everything
04:35:06TrueJournalsin general, rockbox seems to work better because some things (like audio codec) are run on the second core
04:35:11Soapyes, kernel on COP will help with menu scrolling - though it is no replacement for a proper scroll acceleration.
04:35:32*Soap 's dry skin has cleared up since KoCOP. Smooth!

04:42:06Soapw1ll14m's?
04:42:10 Part TrueJournals
04:42:22decayedcell_*nods*. Scrolling speed seems to be related to CPU frequency
04:42:38decayedcell_To prove this, you can try playing music then scroll and it *should* be faster
04:42:39Soapeverything is related to CPU frequency.
04:43:08decayedcell_So basically, Williams patch makes everything run faster, scrolling too. Nothing special ;p
04:43:12Soapbut that doesn't mean the solution to poor scrolling code is to clock the CPU faster. The solution is to improve the scrolling code.

08:05:24Araeliushello all
08:05:37Araeliusi had a question regarding installation
08:05:50Araeliusmight anyone be able to help?
08:06:08OverandYou shoul probably just ask the question- that's a good way to find out.
08:06:34Araeliusok, well the "ipodpatcher −−scan" doesn't work when i attempt to install
08:06:44Araeliuscommand i should say
08:07:02Araeliusit says it's an unknown option
08:07:11Overandhm
08:07:44OverandI haven't touched that in a while, and I don't remember options off the top of my head. It's possible that there's been a change in that ipodpatcher program- I seem to remember reading something about that
08:07:54Overandyou may have a newer or older version than the docs expect
08:08:11Araeliusi see
08:08:25Overandjust running "ipodpatcher" or "ipodpatcher −−help" should present you with a list of commandline options

08:11:27Overandbut I haven't touched the ipodpatcher stuff since i installed rockbox a number of weeks ago- i'm a user, not a developer
08:11:50Araelius:( I guess I could give it a go in Ubuntu
08:12:30Araeliusneed to re-install, this is going to take a while

11:31:23amiconnIt probably probably produces an 'int' result - and casting that to a pointer (of whatever type) on lp64 platforms will throw this warning

11:51:24Lloreandan_a: The only one of the "Known bugs" I see as being a significant problem (especially if KoC plus the multiplier change, or KoC on its own fixes the scaling freeze) is the Recording breaking, but since it broke playback after anyway, I'd always kinda assumed recording wasn't quite right anyway.

11:53:37linuxstbdan_a: How about committing everything apart from the change to create_thread() to run the codec on the COP? It can then be tested more widely before actually moving the codec thread.
11:54:12Lloreanlinuxstb: Is there something about the codec thread move specifically that's unreliable?
11:55:00dan_alinuxstb: Good plan. I'd held off from doing that before now beacuse I didn't know what the hit on battery life would be, but of course we know now that that won't be too much
11:55:24rp-dan_a: is the battery state read-out done in adc-e200.c adc_scan() ?
11:55:31linuxstbLlorean: There's a potential for problems due to the cache. I just think it's a big change, so it may be useful to do it in stages.

11:57:05Lloreandan_a: You have a PP5020 target right?
11:57:24linuxstbBTW, the recording broken after playback is (I think) due to either the DAC or I2S not being re-initialised correctly after playback. I would expect the COP patch to be causing a different problem, but I can't immediately think what it could be.
11:57:36dan_aI think I'll do one last test version, which takes the main thread off the COP and adds some mailbox messaging (to see if the COP is available, and to tell the COP to reset to 0x0)
11:58:07dan_aLlorean: Yes, I've got a 4G greyscale (and two Samsung YH-820s, but they don't count)
11:59:10Lloreandan_a: Does coprocessor support seem to fix the scaling bugs? I've got a very hard time figuring out which people are talking about what regarding that issue, these days.
11:59:40linuxstbdan_a: I can't remember if anyone has done this test before (I think they have though), but could you try using the old ipod_fw installation method to install the current bootloader.bin on your 4G and see if the original firmware loads?
12:00
12:00:20dan_aLlorean: It does - I've had no lockups using KoCOP8
12:00:25linuxstbI still haven't found the reason why the new ipodpatcher isn't working on the older ipods (wrt loading the original firmware), and want to confirm the bootloader itself isn't the issue.
12:00:50dan_alinuxstb: I'll get myself a coffee then try that
12:01:11linuxstbThanks. It would be nice to fix ipodpatcher before everyone is forced to upgrade their bootloader.
12:01:14decayedcelllinuxstb on the 4G grayscale I tried patching with ROLO, but that failed loading the original firmware. iPodLoader 2.4 worked however =/
12:01:29Lloreandan_a: Alright. With all the craziness on the "Fixing scaling" task, and the fact that people there seemed to see no problem mixing and matching patches and calling it 'testing' I wanted someone I actually know to tell me something about their experience. :)
12:01:53linuxstbdecayedcell: Are you using "ROLO" to mean the Rockbox bootloader?
12:02:07decayedcelllinuxstb yes thats the official name isn't it
12:02:13Lloreandecayedcell: No, ROLO is not the bootloader.
12:02:22linuxstbNo, ROLO is the feature in Rockbox itself to start other firmwares.
12:02:23dan_alinuxstb: I want to make COP builds work (but without using the COP) with old bootloaders
12:02:28decayedcellokay then bootloader not ROLO
12:03:05decayedcellI had the same problem with my 5.5G, but restoring the firmware partition and patching again fixed it
12:04:04linuxstbdan_a: As long as that's not hard. In those cases, it could be nice for Rockbox to display a splash telling people they need to upgrade their bootloader.
12:04:39decayedcellUsing the rockbox bootloader on my friends 4G iPod Color seemed to work too =/

12:20:18hachiwhat does the -f mean?
12:20:21dan_aNo, I was just going through the bootloader changes (as a bootloader build now creates bootloader.ipod instead of bootloader.bin)

12:24:36hachier, someone might be sending it to me... nevermind

12:26:58linuxstb_You can't use IPL's install instructions?
12:27:01hachithe loader2 docs say that the latest version of ipodpatcher handles -rb, and can put .bin files in the right place then
12:27:17hachioh for christs sake, why do you assume that I'm not reading the docs?
12:27:30dan_alinuxstb_: The problem appears to be with the new bootloader, not with ipodpatcher
12:27:37Lloreanhachi: Because you're asking in #Rockbox about a function the official ipodpatcher doesn't have?
12:27:39linuxstb_Sorry - I didn't expect loader2's docs to be wrong...
12:28:10linuxstb_Or pointing to a Rockbox installation tool...
12:28:26hachioops, I mean -ab
12:28:32hachiI've been typing it wrong
12:28:36hachi(to you)
12:28:56linuxstb_That's supported in the code in SVN, but that version of ipodpatcher hasn't been released as a binary yet.
12:30:01hachiright... okay
12:30:26linuxstb_dan_a: You installed the current bootloader.bin using the old ipod_fw method, and the original firmware doesn't start?
12:31:04dan_alinuxstb_: That's correct. I then put apple_os.ipod into the root of my 4G, and it still didn't start
12:31:52linuxstb_OK. The only common denominator seems to be a greyscale LCD - the bootloader works fine on the Color, Nano and Video. But people have reported problems on the 1st/2nd gen mini and 4g greyscale.
12:31:58Lloreandan_a: Did you extract it from an ipod that was in a condition that booted to the Apple OS?
12:32:17*n1s wonders why removing unused strings in enlish.lang sometimes increases binary size...
12:32:42JdGordonanyone know which file rockbox_browse() is in? this stupid ide doesnt have find in files!
12:32:47dan_aLlorean: I put the original bootpartition.bin back on, and confirmed that it booted straight into the OF before I started these tests

12:35:28dan_alinuxstb_: I'll give it a try
12:36:02hachiif I try to compile ipodpatcher for windows from linux... is it gonna work? or should I just give up on that avenue now?
12:36:36hachicause I've gotta find disk space first... and I'd rather not be angry when I get to the end and find that doesn't actually work
12:36:37linuxstb_I compile it that way - the makefile is designed for it. Just type "make ipodpatcher.exe" (if you have the mingw compiler installed)
12:36:43Lloreanhachi: If you have access to a windows machine, why not compile on windows?
12:37:39hachibecause I've lost many many many hours trying to compile gaim for windows... I'm tired of trying to compile open source projects on windows... it never works
12:38:08hachiand then the developers just go 'oh well, works for me' and I'm right back where I started
12:38:25Mikachugaim developers are hardly representative of open source
12:38:37LloreanGaim compiling in windows is _not_ fun.
12:39:05linuxstb_hachi: ipodpatcher.exe is simple C with no external dependencies. You shouldn't have problems whereever you compile it.

14:12:23markunis there a WPS tag to switch it off?
14:12:38pixelmayes, sure
14:13:00JustJohnny68I have the WPS tag set to off, so taking out the command in the .cfg isn't a problem
14:13:04amiconnlinuxstb_: The charging anim didn't work without the patch either. Strange, I never noticed that before...
14:13:23Genre9mp3markun: oops... a slight correction on the iCatcher commit... wps/UniCatcher/codec-wavpack-sc.bmp should be removed since there's no UniCatcher for H10 5GB
14:13:28linuxstb_It was the same on my Color - I never charged in Rockbox, so never noticed.
14:13:40pixelmamarkun, JustJohnny68: that's just my opinion though...
14:13:56amiconnSo the patch basically does everything it's supposed to do
14:14:03amiconnAny test targets left?
14:14:27markunpixelma: I agree. Maybe one day we can do some WPS like things with the menu and browser.
14:14:28linuxstb_It's been tested on the H10, Video, Color, and now the mini2g and Nano.
14:14:45markunGenre9mp3: just remove this file is enough?

14:19:38LloreanThen you'd just have to make sure that backdrop image comes after background color if a theme does both.
14:19:53Genre9mp3linuxstb_: IMO there should be a "backdrop: clear" or something setting for the .cfg

14:20:31linuxstb_They have to.
14:20:58Genre9mp3Llorean: Well, this can be handled by the WPSLIST file, too

14:23:36Genre9mp3Llorean: I think though that not clearing the backdrop while setting a fgcolour may lead to problems even if the wps itself doesn't need that (eg. black fgcolour and black backdrop, even if the wps itself has its own background, the file browser/menu will be unreadable)

14:24:55LloreanYeah
14:25:09LloreanI'm trying to remember the exact situation I'd thought of where I didn't want it to clear, but it's not coming around any more
14:26:46Genre9mp3Llorean: wps that don't have background and the current backdrop doesn't mess with the fgcolour
14:27:03Genre9mp3but you can't always now if this will be the situation

14:29:53LloreanGenre9mp3: It's readable by my standards, but I like tiny fonts.
14:29:54JustJohnny68Genre9mp3: Markun pointed this out to me. Nimbus 19 wasn't in last Mon/Tue daily font package, so I haven't tried it yet, but will shortly. I've updated to Nimbus for all but one device.

14:32:30markunI hope I can find a better tool, if not maybe I should give it a go myself
14:34:51pixelmaI'd like to have some more fonts in "unusual" sizes... like 10 or 11 points. It just looks like it's going to be a lot of work

14:42:11linuxstb_Genre9mp3: That's good. We should document that, and ask theme creators to use it - but only if they change the fg colour in their .cfg file.

15:23:36pit_it doesn't shut down, it just stops playing, leaves the wps
15:24:01amiconnThis logic is hooked in parallel to the OFF button, hence short voltage "ditches" below some threshold produce an OFF button event

16:22:01preglowtrue enough, i guess
16:22:23Lloreanlinuxstb_: I think the Sansa was made available because other than sound, everything pretty much works and including it on the build table made it easy to see if something broke it.

16:27:10preglowalso, it depends on the nda
16:27:12LloreanjhMikeS: If they distributed the binary, they'd have to provide source upon request. They can't provide source, so they can't distribute the binary.
16:27:16preglowbut the gpl issue is valid, of course
16:27:58*jhMikeS is looking for a loophole
16:28:02Lloreanwebguest29: Video still needs an awful lot of optimization.
16:28:23LloreanjhMikeS: Well, we still have Austrian whatever offering to help us.
16:28:32linuxstb_That's assuming MrH even got audio playback working within Rockbox - maybe he just did his own tests, outside the playback code.
16:28:35LloreanjhMikeS: Not to mention the Sansa _emulator_ that could potentially let us learn a few things
16:28:39Soapso how "nudge-nudge, wink-wink" can you be and still avoid violating a NDA?
16:28:54webguest29Llorean: well before they said it wouldnt even be possible so i was suprised to see there is actually something that doesnt work too bad considering
16:29:11Lloreanwebguest29: I'm surprised anyone said Video in Rockbox wouldn't be possible

16:31:35LloreanjhMikeS: Well, AMS seems amenable to an alternate arrangement to their standard NDA, though I don't believe they've told us what it is yet.
16:32:07webguest29Llorean: why cant they use the chip? Couldnt they use a wrapper?
16:32:35*linuxstb_ repeats his request from about 90 minutes ago for people to try out the new ipod bootloaders and ipodpatcher before he makes a new release.
16:32:40Lloreanwebguest29: I'm not even sure how you mean that in this context. The hardware is completely undocumented so we can't use any of its decoding features.
16:32:43rp-i'm still waiting of a message of austriancoder that he got the datasheet :>
16:32:43Soapthe "alternate arrangement" is to lure all the unsuspecting Rockbox devs to their mountain castle lair, and lock them in the dungeon before the port sees the light of day!!!!
16:32:54LloreanSoap: That seems likely.
16:33:09Lloreanlinuxstb_: Do you need it tested on Nano, since the old everything worked fine anyway?
16:33:26linuxstb_Llorean: Yes please - just to confirm everything is still fine.
16:33:36tucozIsn't it possible to distribute a compiled version of rockbox with the sansa sound driver, and provide the rockbox source on request. Isn't this compliant with the GPL?
16:33:39webguest29Llorean: it seems like someone would figure out how it works though eventually
16:34:04bluebrothertucoz, that is ... but you need to distribute the sources for the audio stuff too
16:34:10Lloreanlinuxstb_: I should be able to just -wf apple_os.ipod then -a the bootloader, right?
16:34:17bluebrotherand that in turn is forbidden by the NDA.
16:34:33Lloreanwebguest29: Eventually that may be true, but it's not going to be for a long time. Since that only affects ONE device, nobody's focusing on it specifically
16:34:49tucozhmm. i thought you only had to distribute the parts that are gpl, not your own work
16:34:52Lloreanbluebrother: I think he's referring to the "binary blob" method
16:35:04bluebrotherbut how should that work?
16:35:22bluebrotherit would need a binary blob that's not part of Rockbox but gets loaded dynamically
16:35:27tucozsimilar to the gigabeat for instance
16:35:28linuxstb_Llorean: The most important is just to try "-a bootloader" with your existing bootloader installed, to test if the upgrading is working. If you have time, any other tests you can think of would also be useful.
16:35:41bluebrotherhow does it work on the GB?
16:35:43tucozthey use linux which is gpl, but some parts are not
16:35:46Lloreanlinuxstb_: Well, right now my bootloader was -wf'ed
16:35:58linuxstb_runtime linking doesn't remove the need for all code to be GPL'd.
16:36:06jhMikeSChange the rockbox licensing subltely for certain situation like this?
16:36:08webguest29Llorean: i was thinking like a ndiswrapper for linux
16:36:12tucozand they only have to provide the linux sources
16:36:26tucoz(i think)
16:36:29Lloreanwebguest29: Someone would have to at least figure out how to use their code then, still
16:36:29linuxstb_tucoz: That's because Linus doesn't enforce that aspect of the GPL.
16:36:37linuxstb_(the other Linus...)
16:36:39tucozaha. ok
16:37:10tucozthanks for clearing that out. so linux is a special case then.
16:37:26linuxstb_But that assumes that both a) Mr H has a working audio driver (not just test code); and b) He wants to release it in any form, which AFAIK he doesn't.
16:37:55tucoztrue
16:38:39preglowlinuxstb_: svn ipodpatcher is what i should use?
16:38:45linuxstb_Yes please.
16:38:45tucozit's a bad solution anyway. let's keep our fingers crossed that the NDA issues gets ironed out then.
16:39:37linuxstb_The new bootloaders include the changes to the error messages, so no more "what does error -1 mean?" questions...
16:39:42Lloreanlinuxstb_: Everything seems to work fine
16:40:38webguest29ooo i just found i good combination for cleaning my ipod

16:41:12linuxstb_Llorean: I guess you've read the commit messages, but ipodpatcher should now be more reliable when upgrading an existing ipod - the previous version didn't work when I upgraded an old ipod_fw installed bootloader on my 5g, but the new version passes that test.

17:48:43preglowyeah, for now
17:48:51preglowi removed use of it through being a bit more clever
17:49:01linuxstb_w1ll14m: Do B and L change?
17:49:17amiconnlinuxstb_: Color is different...
17:49:58linuxstb_amiconn: Yes, I can't spot any GPIO that indicates charging status on my Color.
17:50:04linuxstb_(I mean with my experiments)
17:50:38amiconnI am mainly interested in GPIO C changes with firewire connection on color/4g
17:51:06dewdudewhy is it i can't get anything i need on flyspray...heen trying to find cop patch for hours
17:51:13w1ll14mlinuxstb: L changes as well, when normal 28 or A8, charger connected:20 or A0, when pc connected:00 or 80
17:51:24amiconnGPIO C bit 0 toggles as long as firewire is connected on my mini G2
17:51:31 Quit efyx ("Quitte")
17:51:34Lloreandewdude: Just search for coprocessor
17:51:40amiconnBit 1 goes low with both 4-pin and 6-pin firewire
17:51:45w1ll14mlinuxstb: B is always F1 or F9
17:51:52dewdudei tried that
17:52:02dan_adewdude: Or go straight to patch 5755
17:52:15amiconnBit 2 goes low on a 6-pin socket only, and it does so about one second before bit 1 goes low
17:52:21w1ll14mlinuxstb: so only GPIO_E and GPIO_L changes
17:52:21linuxstb_When connecting my Color to my PC firewire, I get C goes from 0x36 to 0x30, but flashes 0x32 as I'm inserting.
17:52:26dewdudei thought that was just the workframe to make cop work
17:52:42amiconnSo I am pretty sure bit 2 is firewire power, and will go low even with a fw charger (which I do not have)
17:52:46dewdudehence the summery "add beginnings...."
17:52:46dan_aIt started off as that
17:52:59rp-dan_a: did you try anything on the sansa battery?
17:53:02amiconnlinuxstb_: 6-pin firewire?
17:53:05dewdudeyeah, cuz my current rocobox cop build is...OLD
17:53:13dewdudei guess i should try to learn to build my own
17:53:18jhMikeSpreglow: seems to be working just fine. so you have optimizations to the eq code itself. need I check boost?
17:53:30Lloreandewdude: Flyspray is just patches, not builds, anyway
17:53:31dan_arp-: Anything I tried made the screen go funny
17:53:35linuxstb_amiconn: Yes.
17:53:39preglowjhMikeS: just coef calculations, so no
17:53:41dewdudei know it's just patches
17:53:52dewdudei wanna get some patches so i can patch some source and maybe build my own rockbox
17:54:02amiconnOkay, so 4G (colour and greyscale) fw detection is the same as mini G2
17:54:04linuxstb_w1ll14m: Is your ipod fully charged?
17:54:23rp-dan_a: yeah, same problem here, after the first i2c send it hangs
17:54:39Big_MacWhat file stores the image dispayed on boot up?
17:55:08rp-dan_a: and i can't find some init code in the BL, before that sequence starts, very odd
17:55:19jhMikeSpreglow: well I'm cranking the values all over the place and my ears are ok :)
17:55:28linuxstb_Big_Mac: apps/bitmaps/native/rockboxlogo*.bmp
17:55:51Big_Macthen if I change that and make zip it will be changed?
17:56:09LloreanBig_Mac: You have to do a make first. Then make zip.
17:56:13Big_Mack
17:56:44linuxstb_dan_a: My Color is still happilly playing back MP3s without freezing...
17:57:19w1ll14mlinuxstb: yes my ipod is charged fully
17:57:46amiconnlinuxstb_: It looks like fw power counts as "external power" on the G5. Check GPIO L bit 3 on http://ipodlinux.org/GPIO
17:57:48preglowjhMikeS: at 24 db gain for lowshelf, i think i can pick up some wraparound noise, but that's not something i introduced now, for sure
17:58:00preglowjhMikeS: goodie, thanks. this was x5?
17:58:07linuxstb_w1ll14m: Bit 0 of GPIO_B indicates charging, it changes from 0xB9 to 0xB8 when it's charging. You could try again after using up some of your battery.
17:58:17jhMikeSno, H120...x5's not back yet
17:58:22preglowcoldfire anyway
17:58:32w1ll14mlinuxstb, ok i will be testing now
17:58:59jhMikeSall I get is ditortion with low shelf cranked

18:06:10Lloreanw1ll14m: You don't need any patched bootloaders, as long as you're using the newest code.
18:06:21Lloreanw1ll14m: The Rockbox one doesn't require patching either.
18:06:37lexso my old ipl loader 2 works with it? :o
18:06:48dan_alex: That sounds like you're using a bootloader that doesn't work
18:06:56w1ll14mLlorean: then i missed some information i think....
18:06:58lexyeah, it's pretty old...
18:07:11lexabout the first one what worked on 5.5G
18:08:10linuxstb_lex: Easiest way is to try it and see if it works...
18:08:23Lloreanw1ll14m: The old patch required a patched bootloader, but it hasn't required one for the new version for a while. I've told people this in many places.
18:08:28linuxstb_But it sounds like you need to upgrade to a newer loader2 or Rockbox bootloader.
18:08:52lexlinuxstb_: but where can i get a built new loader 2
18:08:59w1ll14mLlorean: ok, haven't seen it yet, i'm noet very active at forums

18:09:34Lloreanw1ll14m: It also says that in the comments on the patch entry as well.
18:09:43Lloreanlex: This is #Rockbox, Loader2 isn't our software.

18:10:57linuxstb_It doesn't stop to ask you questions, if that's what you want. But you now start the Apple firmware by turning the hold switch on.
18:11:20lexi mean a menu would be cool

18:16:43decatenseyes, version 2.5 has it right?
18:16:47LloreanNo, it doesn't.
18:16:55LloreanVersion 2.5 is over a year old.
18:17:02decatenseoh? i read somewhere it did. oh wow
18:17:06decatenseso what version do i need?
18:17:23LloreanJust the current build.
18:17:47decatenseso is 2.5 just the last stable release?
18:18:16Soapif you define "stable" the same way Debian does...
18:18:24linuxstb_amiconn: Adding this code - http://www.pastebin.ca/340223 - into main() in bootloader/ipod.c will cause your ipod to enter disk mode directly from the Rockbox bootloader, but at least on my 5g, I get a nasty sounding click from the hard disk. (my test was just the code to enter disk mode, without any detection).
18:18:27Llorean2.5 is the last version-numbered release.
18:18:42decatenseah i see
18:19:58LloreanThere shouldn't be any documentation that suggests Last.fm is part of 2.5. Do you remember where you read it?
18:20:26amiconnlinuxstb_: The nasty click also happens when entering disk mode from within rockbox and the disk is still running

18:20:51decatenseit was a forum somewhere

18:23:38linuxstb_Sorry, not _every_ daily build.
18:23:44Lloreandecatense: You should at least update as new features become available.
18:24:08linuxstb_amiconn: I guess we'll need to shut the disk down cleanly, which will delay the reboot?
18:24:12decatensewell that's sort of what i mean, obviously the feature is there and it isn't documented on the site when it became part of it so how am i supposed to know?

20:57:54Juice^barrywardell: ok ok
20:57:57dan_abarrywardell: That sounds plausible. Perhaps we should wait for the COP to wake up in the main thread
20:58:23dan_aw1ll14m: That would sort of tie in with what MrH found
20:58:30rp-barrywardell: and what i saw from the disassembled BL, the readout sequence is done 3 times, but i don't know why

23:05:37rp-barrywardell: powermgmnt is in firmeware/, but thank you :)
23:05:45Hans-Martinmarkun: btw, which size torx do you use for the screws? I used a T5 but it feels like it's a little small. but T6 is definitely too big
23:05:53barrywardellrp-: oops, yes. that's what I meant :P
23:07:08barrywardelllinuxstb: it's in the mx31 driver linked from the mx31.h file

23:11:26BiptoNsoap: thanks, that'd be a good thing
23:11:51BiptoNhas anyone noticed that when you turn the X5 off, the battery seems to 1-800-DIE?
23:12:33Soul-Slaye1Same on the H10 I find :$
23:12:43LloreanBiptoN: Is there any chance you could be talked into just speaking clearly without strange things like that?
23:12:54SoapBiptoN: could you do the same on your 4 and 5.5? I'm really curious.
23:13:18BiptoNsoap: i recorded on two different 4g grayscales' and a 5.5g
23:13:43Soapok - I'm just curious what the noise floor number is in dB.
23:13:47BiptoNthe 4g's both had quite a bit of signal being picked up on both channels with and without the dongle
23:14:07BiptoNthe 5.5g only had a little on the right channel, but it's the same noise
23:14:22Hans-Martinmarkun: ok, player reassembled, everything's cool - just haven't got enough time tonight to continue the project which requires a working reset button :-(
23:14:29BiptoNllorean: no problem, I'll try for ya;)
23:14:34Soapok - if you have a chance I'll really dig quant over qual
23:18:09BiptoNdo you want me to pull it up in audacity Soap?
23:18:25BiptoNi don't have a working 4g anymore, but i can get dB on the 5
23:18:31Soapwhatever you are most comfortable with.
23:19:13Juice^barrywardell: did you see the latest post the forum about the screen going black on the sansa? with the strange "fiber" looking colors then going to complete black
23:19:18SoapI'm more curious than anything - I guess if we had enough data we could determine with reasonable certainty if your problem is unusual.

23:37:07*jhMikeS is finding it tempting to go optimizing the DSP scheme but should probably just put in the resampler clicking fix to keep the change focused
23:37:19preglowjhMikeS: i'm planning on looking at that myself one day
23:37:24preglowsharing ideas might be nice
23:37:47preglowthere's quite a bit of unnecessary stuff in there for sure
23:38:04jhMikeSI'm full of them so it's tempting to just go rewriting everything
23:38:47 Quit Mouser_X (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))

23:43:07markunHans-Martin: I think preglow was thinking about something similar
23:43:27barrywardelldoes anyone else get the recording screen stuff stuck on the statusbar, even in the wps?

23:44:05preglowjhMikeS: confusing it is too
23:44:09Hans-Martinmarkun: yeah I've heard that, too. but since this is a fun rpoject, I just want to do it - because I want to have the fun :-)
23:44:15preglowjhMikeS: but i think killing the resampler bug first would be wise

23:48:08LloreanNo.
23:48:15Ar53ngosh =(
23:48:23Ar53nthx for answer
23:48:23jhMikeSIf you pass just a few samples (or one), how can you guarantee output. I mean how could you put one sample into a downsampler and expect to get a sample back every time. It seems the situation of tiny remnants on the last loop could occurr.

23:49:21Ar53nanother question , i've installer many addons on in my doom folder such as counterpod ( doom/addons ) after i've chosen the addon and lunch the game , it crash and goes back to the plugin menu
23:49:23Ar53n=/
23:49:51LloreanDoes it say something right before it exits?
23:50:15Ar53nno
23:50:26Ar53n=/ it just goes back to the plugin menu =(
23:50:47LloreanSo, when you tell it to launch the game, you don't get *any* text on the screen?
23:51:00LloreanBecause usually Doom has quite a bit of text while it starts up.
23:51:31Ar53nOh
23:51:36Ar53nyeah i does wait i'll look
23:51:52jhMikeSpreglow: I mean, it's a contradiction if you downsample and get as many samples back as you put in, no?
23:51:55Ar53n*it ddoes
23:52:19LloreanAr53n: Which main wad are you using?
23:52:28LinusNamiconn: i'm investigating the weird outletm3 player
23:52:47Ar53n*you cannot - file with the shareware version
23:52:55preglowjhMikeS: most of the time
23:52:58Ar53nthat wut it says
23:53:09LinusNno matter what i do, the cpu frequency is doubled
23:53:09LloreanAr53n: Yes, you cannot use addons with the shareware Doom. You have to have a full Doom wad.
23:53:09 Quit miepchen^schlaf ("Verlassend")
23:53:10preglowjhMikeS: but with a small downsample ratio, yes, it is possible in the short term
23:53:19Ar53nmmmm ok i see!
23:53:19LloreanAr53n: And "wut" is not a word.
23:53:26Ar53nwell lthx Llorean! =)(
23:53:33Ar53nbig hug for u <3 (k)
23:53:36LloreanAr53n: Try using Freedoom.
23:53:37Mikachuhahahaha
23:53:54LloreanName it doomf.wad or doom2.wad and it should work with the addons.
23:54:25Ar53nok ! ill try it n tell u if it works!
23:54:34mattzzjhMikeS: fyi - adding another yield() did the trick. thanks
