00:07:55H10_007quickI'm interested in trying to fix that on the H10 you have to click the select button and not the play button for yes. Anyone have an idea were to start?
00:12:14barrywardell_it's in the keymaps IIRC
00:12:53H10_007quickwhat does IIRC stand for?
00:12:58H10_007quicki see now
00:13:06H10_007quickbut just curious I see it around lots
00:13:15scorcheif i recall correctly
00:13:21linuxstb_H10_007quick: Do you want to change the keymap, or change the text displayed?
00:13:41H10_007quickwhich would you suggest?
00:13:52H10_007quickprably the key map to stay consitent
00:14:04H10_007quickSo that all the targets use play

00:21:11H10_007quickSays "play" on mine
00:21:21TrueJournalsthat's... odd...
00:22:14TrueJournalsDo you have a 20 GB or 5/6 GB?
00:22:34Domonokyi think its a missing entry in the lang file..
00:23:12TrueJournalsHm, because I have a 20GB... so maybe it's just wrong on the 5/6 GB...?

01:56:50markunmoos: he likes recording, but also likes a nice screen
01:57:10moosimho, X5 is still one of the best rockbox target for now, the little disadvantage is the subpack/cradle dependence
01:57:18linuxstb_markun: There's also the h300
01:57:21mooshehe, he have to buy both then ;)
01:57:31moosyup or h3xx indeed
01:57:38BRi7Xtramoos: would you recommend the gigabeat f over the iaudio x5?
01:57:50Dark_ApostropheLooks like the iAudio X5L is the only option for me
01:57:50markunmoos: what's better about the x5 compared to the h300?
01:57:55Dark_ApostropheBut it's ugly, and expensive
01:58:07moosdepending on what do you prefer, exemple if radio and recording are really needed
01:58:08markunDark_Apostrophe: just use your Zen man :)
01:58:19Dark_ApostropheI will...
01:58:24moosthe gigabeat is cheaper indeed
01:58:24Dark_ApostropheI'll use it till it dies.

01:58:31moossi si
01:58:49moosbetter screen with radio and recording

04:04:46Joelyhey, I'm just wanting some input on whether to make a codec or plugin for a {DAC,ADC} <-> infrared module..i know it works, i've tested it. i just need to make it more configureable at runtime. or maybe i need both? what i'm trying to do is have it be configured to a very large database of IR devices, and have a menu driven way of `pressing all the buttons!'
04:05:29Joelyi thought it would be fun to have my sansa be a universal remote.. :)
04:06:15Nico_PJoely: you mean you have the actual code ?
04:06:43aliaskJoely: That sort of thing sounds far more suited to be in a plugin.
04:07:12aliaskCodecs are used in rockbox for playing back or recording audio.
04:07:21Joelyreally? i just didn't want to have to generate a database and download that to my sansa....of the sound files
04:07:30 Nick Khalsa is now known as Gursikh (n=khalsa@unaffiliated/gursikh)
04:07:39Joelyand the ir data _is_ a sound file ;)
04:07:42aliaskOh I see.
04:07:57aliaskSo you would have a folder full of "sound files" which output infrared.
04:09:07Joelyi really didn't want that though...what i wanted is something like a compact text database that renders itself to sound files as it's parsed
04:09:30Joelythat way i wouldn't have to take up so much space
04:09:51Nico_PI think a plugin would be better for this
04:10:09aliaskI still think that a plugin would be more suited. Does the sansa have a built in IR transmitter or are you connecting one via the headphone port?
04:10:25Joelyconnecting one via the headphone jack
04:10:58aliaskSo you're not really losing anything by not being able to play audio while the IR codec is loaded.
04:11:00Nico_Psounds fun
04:11:00Joelyi'm actually splitting you can switch rapidly between ir and sound
04:11:33 Part TrueJournals
04:11:33Nico_Poutputting audio data from a plugin isn't too hard I think

04:12:14Soapyou going to sell these IR transmitters?
04:12:28aliask(by the way this project sounds damn cool)
04:12:34Nico_Pwell it should be quite easy to have some sort of PCM <-> text command table
04:12:35JoelyNico_P, really? i just wanted an _easy_ way that would be thread safe and allow you to play audio too
04:13:03Nico_PI don't see how you can play audio at the same time
04:13:05JoelySoap, well...i was hoping you guys at rockbox might be willing to take over selling these things for money ;)
04:13:11Joelyyou rapidly switch
04:13:20Joelyyou just split the signal
04:13:24Nico_Pwell you would just quit the plugin and resume playback
04:13:45Soapthe wiki awaits your component list.
04:13:54Nico_Pthat could be harder
04:14:25Nico_Pyou'd need to speak to someone who knows rockbox better for that :)
04:14:50aliaskIs the audio buffer locked from inside a plugin unless you stop it? If not you could just try inserting samples directly into the PCM buffer. (Probably not a very friendly method)
04:15:36aliaskYes, I think it'd be best to wait for the Europeans to wake up, I really don't know much about this sort of thing.
04:16:59Joelyi actually started this because i got a tivo...
04:17:02Joelywith no remote

05:46:55mrkMine seems to be working fine, for the most part. Learning curve is a bit tricky, but not too bad once you're used to it. I just need album art right now, and I'd be pretty good.
05:47:03mrkI'm looking around on how to use it.
05:48:48perkinsis the anybody here
05:48:56mrkYes, people are here.
05:50:13Hilikusis there a built in way to change the color in the wps text?
05:50:37mrktry opening the file with notepad and seeing if there's anything there for you to mess with?
05:50:52scorcheHilikus: foreground color
05:51:08 Part perkins
05:51:09Hilikushow do i change that from the wps file?
05:51:12Hilikuswhats the tag
05:51:36digerati1338to change foreground color edit the .cfg file in the themes folder.
05:51:47Hilikusoh but i mean just for 1 line
05:51:48digerati1338package it with your wps.
05:51:55digerati1338oh idk about that
05:51:57Hilikusnot for the whole thing
05:52:03scorcheyou cant do it for one line
05:52:06digerati1338there is a wiki page with all of the wps commands.
05:52:14digerati1338i didnt think you could either
05:52:23digerati1338the only way is to make it an image
05:52:37Hilikusis it worthed to write a patch for that?
05:52:47Hilikusall those patches are reeeeally old
05:52:48mrkis that all we've got in the way of album art support?
05:52:58digerati1338then you can do whatever color you want either in the background image (permanent) or by using the %xl and &xd commands
05:53:10scorchemrk: yes
05:53:26digerati1338Album art support is basically waiting for the Bmp resize patch
05:53:28Hilikuswhat do you mean make it an image
05:53:35mrkmk. I should get to work on making that, well, work, then.
05:53:38digerati1338put your text in an image
05:53:46mrkwould you conisder that difficult in the slightest?
05:53:49digerati1338if you want a single line of different text
05:53:50Hilikuswhats wrong with the bmp resize patch?
05:53:59digerati1338its out of sync i believe
05:54:07Hilikusi used it
05:54:13Hilikusit was, i manually changed it
05:54:14digerati1338or maybe it was being reworked
05:54:27Hilikusbut my build is so tweaked i cant make a patch out of it
05:54:49Hilikusbut the changes were all pretty simple
05:57:03mrkoh, boy.
05:57:16mrkpatching doesn't look like it's a subject to be taken lightly at all. blast.
05:57:34digerati1338its not that complicated if you're used to linux
05:57:46digerati1338but if you're new to the whole thing it is a bit overwhelming
05:57:51Hilikusjust find a compiled version for your dap
05:58:13scorchemrk: it is really only 3 commands or so once you have the environment set up
05:58:15digerati1338most of the precompiled builds are pretty good
05:58:30digerati1338get cygwin running
05:58:38mrkthe whole environment setup doesn't look too fun, then :P
05:58:39scorcheor vmware or colinux
05:58:48Hilikusits not fun
05:58:51digerati1338then its just patch -p0 < patchname.patch
05:59:06Hilikusand i recommend real linux over all those emulators
05:59:09mrkI'm not /completely/ new to linux. I might as well be, though. I have a lot of friends who use it full-time, though, so I *may* be able to ask for their help.
05:59:26scorchein the case of vmware, you simply download vmware and the image, and install vmware, open the image..not hard at all
05:59:28digerati1338real linux rox
05:59:37Hilikusbut again, if you are not into it, just find a precompiled version
05:59:45scorchethose "emulators" are real linux..
05:59:46mrkgaaaaaaah. Annoying, just to view album are. whatever, though. I'll get on it eventually.
05:59:52scorchecygwin isnt, but vmware and colinux are
05:59:57digerati1338and it might actually be easier to install ubuntu than trying to get cygwin to work right
06:00:04mrkprecompiled? that sounds like I'd like it :P
06:00:15mrkI have an ubuntu livecd :P
06:00:22scorchedigerati1338: then dont use cygwin and use something else..
06:00:50Joelyheh, if all you're going to use is could try the ported win32 gnu utils...
06:01:22digerati1338im only using cygwin cuz this is my dad's computer and he won't let me repartition his harddisk. Im running slackware on my other box.
06:01:23mrkall I want is album art based on one image in each album-folder in the simplest way possible <_<

06:01:57digerati1338mrk: any build with the album art patch will do that.
06:02:08Hilikusjust ask someone to compile it for you
06:02:14digerati1338save the art as cover.bmp in the albums folder
06:02:26mrkyeah, I know what to do with the actual album art.
06:02:38mrk100x100, cover.bmp, one per album-folder.
06:02:59mrkI just dunno how the process of patching the dap to make album art work works.
06:03:05mrkthat's for a later time, though.
06:03:15mrkit's relatively late, and I've school tomorrow, so I'm out.
06:03:21Hilikusif mine compiled i would compile one for you but im trying to get color lines so it screw up the whole code

15:21:36linuxstbintgr: How much RAM do these devices have?
15:24:35intgrHold on.
15:25:05amiconnintgr: There was an incomplete port to a DSP target once - the Archos gmini 1xx and SP
15:25:24amiconnThose targets are CalmRISC16 based
15:25:25intgramiconn: Oh, any ideas where I can dig up the source?
15:26:32B4gderthe biggest problems with that port was 1) 16bits 2) Harvard arch
15:26:39amiconnThe source was cut from cvs as the port was stalled for nearly 2 years (the only developer disappeared (we know why) and no one else picked up the port)
15:27:03intgrYeah, this one is Hardvard as well.
15:27:20B4gderthat's a pain for plugins and loadable codecs
15:27:39amiconnPlugins are possible with harvard arch - provided there is code RAM
15:28:05amiconnBut the gmini only had data RAM, code was ROM only
15:28:17 Quit davina_ (Remote closed the connection)
15:28:23intgrNow, according to a spec I could find, the STMP3410 has 96k-words of RAM.

15:28:42intgrWhich contradicts what I said about 16-bit addresses earlier.
15:29:41intgrSo 288 kilo-octets, which is quite a lot I suppose.
15:30:04amiconnlinuxstb: Nice green delta line :)

17:44:48 Join bluey- [0] (
17:45:55linuxstbMain problem left is that it won't work with libmad because libmad needs too much stack - my plugin runs the codecs in the main thread, and the main stack is smaller than the codec stack. So I think I need to create my own codec thread, using the same IRAM stack that the main codec thread is using....

17:59:23linuxstbe.g. a 138s FLAC file is decoded in about 33s on my ipod - over 4x realtime.
17:59:54Nico_Pisn't flac very efficient ?
18:00:03Nico_Por is that too efficient ?
18:01:24linuxstbI guess it's about right... 4x realtime implies an ipod running at around 19MHz. But that doesn't include the overhead of the WPS and the actual playback
18:02:01markunjhMikeS: I was more hoping for a way to generate it directly, like this one for pink noise:

18:52:26ccitti would think putting (at least on ipods)that secondary core to use for this would be great - we could offload usb transactions (synchronously) to the other processor whilst the main cpu does its normal thing
18:52:42ccittso you could actually use usb AND listen to music at the same time
18:53:08midkay_if i was plugged into USB at my computer i'd probably be listening to music off the computer anyways..

18:59:42amiconnccitt: On devices where USB has to be done in software, we could theoretically allow USB and normal use in parallel. There is no need for a second core in order to do this
19:01:13amiconnWhether we actually want to do this is another question - there are so many problems related to the fact that filesystems usually assume that they have exclusive access to the medium
19:02:05amiconnOf course rockbox would know that this assumption is wrong, but the filesystem on the PC side would not.

22:08:48badsheepybut then, a phone is more unsupported than an ipod

22:09:08LloreanAn "Open source" phone, as was discussed, should have hardware docs
22:09:26LloreanLook at the Gigabeat. Newer support than iPod support, but we're already getting comparable/better battery time.

23:00:18mrkdoes anybody else's gigabeat not realize that it's connected to the computer when it's in its dock?

23:02:02mrkah, that's pretty cool. it's nice to see how fast rockbox changes.

23:02:49markunLlorean: no, I think he removed the HDD blinking for now
23:02:55LloreanThe "options" seemed somewhat arbitrary. You could have half or all of them on, but you didn't have the option to make half of them dim, or dim flashing for the HDD, or so on.
23:03:18jhMikeShmmm...maybe not, no new queue_post calls were added :\

23:11:28markunkurbjunk: do you agree that it's nicer to commit each patch seperately?
23:11:38kurbjunkI was thinking about that, and it's something that could be done, but I think that there would have to be a mode setting that would effect the timeout setting though
23:12:06kurbjunkyou would split the button init, power, and button lights up then?
23:12:24kurbjunkI guess it would be nicer in case a revert had to be done
23:12:44markunyes, and to see which of the commits cause a build failure
23:13:03kurbjunkis there an easy way to split up commits though, I guess I can write out teh specific files I want to comit rather then doing a tree commit
23:13:05bluebrotherbtw, red build for gigabeat bootloader ...
23:13:15kurbjunkthe button lights caused the build failure
23:13:34kurbjunkbluebrother, yes, I saw, I will fix it in a couple of hours
23:13:36markunkurbjunk: if it's in separate files you can do that yes
23:13:41bluebrotherkurbjunk, I usually only commit file based. It's more control IMO
23:13:55kurbjunkyes, I agree, but I'm also lazy
23:14:11bluebrotheralways this lazy people in here ;-)

23:16:21 Part juxtap
23:16:37Snic42Anyone have a moment to help me with a bizzarre issue? Just wanna see if anyone has any ideas on this.
23:16:49kurbjunkmarkun, I don't know about adding the extra modes, the framework is there for them, the button/backlight driver is much more generic now, and the modes available should allow you to add in any mode that was in before, it's just alot of work to do it in a clean manner.. I think the flashing HD mode could also be added for the sansa if someone was interested in working on a generic method
23:16:50mrkagh. I pressed power once, and it seems to have frozen...
23:17:16kurbjunkrather reproduce any of the old modes
23:17:42mrkdammit. I plugged it into the computer... and the light turned off, but it's still frozen
23:18:23mrkdo I have to reset the battery?
23:18:33mrkbecause it's not responding to any button presses whatsoever
23:18:40mrkwill I lose anything if I do that?
23:18:48markunprobably not
23:18:54jhMikeSthe fading is not smooth now, the menu is still not exiting right :\
23:18:58mrkhuzzah! let's try it.
23:19:02peturmarkun, Domonoky: did any of you reply to the mach speed PM?
23:19:07markunnot me
23:19:22kurbjunkI was interested in getting the button modes that we already support in the sansa (on, off, and different timeout settings) (effectively, on, off, and a more flexible follow)
23:19:47*petur writes mail...
23:19:57Snic42Here's what's going on. I have Rockbox on my iPod, it's worked like a dream and done everything I've expected. Up until today I've been able to plug the unit into my Xbox360's USB ports and have it see the music and play through the Xbox with no problems. Today for apparently no reason it's not seeing it as an external device any longer, but is seeing it as an iPod and cannot see any of the music.
23:20:14kurbjunkJhMikeS: on the gigabeat?
23:20:21jhMikeSkurbjunk: yes
23:20:23preglowpetur: delirium tremens was nice
23:20:25Snic42Now, I've poured through the docs for some way of changing USB mode, but found nothing, so I assume it's just always in HDD mode when plugged through USB.
23:21:41markunpreglow: getting beer by mail now?
23:22:10Snic42Oh and the really bizzarre thing is if I go to pictures, it shows the file tree. But, under Music it doesn't show the tree, just Artist, Playlists, etc... Anyone else run accross this issue before?
23:22:17 Join juxtap [0] (
23:22:19preglowmarkun: nope
23:22:49kurbjunkjhMikeS: the fading is slower because of the changes to the way that updating is done. I had talked with godhart about it and he felt that the changes were worth making as it allowed for more flexibility in th buttonlight driver. Now there is a dedicated state machine that handles the updates to the sc606
23:22:51preglowjust thought i'd mention it since he said the brewery wasn't too far off where he lived
23:23:03kurbjunkwe could speed it up by increasing the step size
23:23:03linuxstb_Snic42: I've no idea how the xbox360 works, but have you upgraded it's software recently?
23:23:06preglowthen again, i guess most places in belgium would have at least ten close by :/
23:23:32HellDragona maze
23:23:34peturpreglow: white building with a big pink elephant, you can't miss it :)
23:23:52markunkurbjunk: doesn't sound like a nice sollution
23:24:14kurbjunkmarkun, which solution would you propose?
23:24:15linuxstb_Snic42: Also, there are two disk modes on the ipod - the "emergency" disk mode (in flash ROM) that Rockbox reboots into, and the disk mode that's part of the main Apple firmware. Do you get the same behaviour in both?
23:24:26Snic42linuxstb: Nope, only thing I did was install the hacked media connect on my Gentoo Box so I can stream media from Linux over the network. Though this shouldn't affect the actual OS on the 360.
23:24:37markunkurbjunk: I would have to look at the code more closely
23:24:49kurbjunkthe old one caused problems with teh buttonlights due to the problems figuring out when each register should be written to
23:24:55Snic42linuxstb: Yeah, I've done the normal disk mode and the hold play and select disk mode, both behave the same.
23:24:56kurbjunkand when
23:25:42kurbjunkYou could probably speed up the back light fading, but you wouldn't be able to fade the buttonlights at the same time
23:25:57kurbjunkor you could increase the step size
23:26:04jhMikeSkurbjunk: I don't have my backlight on full brightness but it's fading as though it is and seems to be wrapping around at the end
23:26:07kurbjunkbut that will make it more choppy
23:26:36H10_007quickDoes the wiki only make a revision if you check it when you edit it?
23:26:42jhMikeSwhy should it?
23:26:47linuxstb_Snic42: Then I've no idea. I would have expected the xbox to always see the ipod as an ipod, and not as an external disk, so I'm surprised it worked in the past.
23:26:48kurbjunkjhMikeS, what setting are you using?
23:26:51markunkurbjunk: I don't see how fast and smooth fading will be impossible
23:27:15H10_007quickthe little box I mean
23:27:24jhMikeSbtw, how are buttons read on the gigabeat? adc through i2c?
23:27:35markunjhMikeS: dedicated gpio pins
23:27:40kurbjunkif you want to fade buttonlights and backlight independently it will be impossible without multiple writes to sc606 on each tick
23:27:40bluebrothernot making a revision of the page doesn't make sense
23:27:52Snic42linuxstb: That's what I was afraid of, that it was a fluke that it worked in the first place.
23:27:54Lloreanmarkun: Maybe just disable smooth fading if they set their fade time below the minimum for smooth fading?
23:27:56bluebrotherI bet this only affects the "last changes" box at the start page
23:28:02LloreanAssuming we ever get the option to set a fade time. ;)
23:28:16kurbjunkthe backlight and buttonlight registers on the sc606 each require a write
23:28:45kurbjunkjhMikeS, I will look into it, I havn't seen it wrap around, but I can try and replicate it
23:28:53jhMikeSI had a loss of buttons...with my patch applied, however that is odd since no new queue_post calls were used from an IRQ (that I could find) and it worked fine prior
23:29:15jhMikeSkurbjunk: right at the end of the fade, the brightness will blip up
23:29:21H10_007quickbluebrother: so every time I edit something and hit save it stores an original (revision)?
23:29:31 Quit SirFunk (Connection timed out)
23:29:46kurbjunkjhMikeS, ok, I will check that out and see if I can fix that
23:29:50jhMikeSI checked all this on clean SVN btw
23:30:01bluebrotherit doesn't make sense storing a new revision of a page without creating a new revision −− it's what revision control is about, isn't it?
23:30:20bluebrotherbut the twiki website may clarify this completely.
23:30:26mrkEeeeeee! Watching the office on the gigabeat. this is exciting <_<
23:30:34kurbjunkdid any of you notice that everytime the gigabeat shutdown on before the patch it would spinup and write to the disk and then shutdown
23:30:34mrkany work being done on the seeking?
23:30:44kurbjunknow it doesn't do that unless there were changes to the menu settings
23:30:48H10_007quickjust wondergin
23:30:52kurbjunkat least for me
23:31:00kurbjunkdon't know if I was the only one getting that though
23:31:14jhMikeSkurbjunk: now that you mention it...I think it did ...hmmm
23:32:55kurbjunkyeah, for whatever reason my patch fixed that.. I don't know the cause of the problem though
23:33:22H10_007quickWhy don't we have a wiki page for noobs? a collection of everywere they could go before they ask questions on the forums?
23:33:36bluebrotherwe have FAQ pages.
23:33:53H10_007quickbut they are not well know about
23:34:06scorcheH10_007quick: we already tell you where to go before asking questions..

23:35:18Bagderthey just went out of date because nobody cared to update them
23:35:21bluebrother... which is quite exposed
23:35:22kurbjunkmarkun, you could do a fast fade with the buttonlights and backlight fading, but you would have to change the step size and that would increase the granularity, if you don't care about fading the buttonlights, then you could do a fast backlight fadeout by writing to more specific registers
23:35:43kurbjunkor you could increase the speed if you are fading the backlight and buttonlighs independently
23:36:06kurbjunkbut if they are fading at the same time that would slow it down again
23:36:37H10_007quickyes but I was just thinking because I was new at this just recently. If there had been a page with links to all the pertinent wiki pages I may have learned faster

23:37:28bluebrotheralso, users should start with the manual anyway
23:37:31scorcheH10_007quick: and what they dont answer, the manual does
23:37:47H10_007quickthe Doc index is good but again new people won't go there

23:42:38SnicThat's the thing, I didn't do anything. It may have created itself when I plugged the ipod into my GF's machine, she has itunes on her system, but we didn't use itunes for anything
23:42:47*bluebrother wrote parts of the manual instead of reading it ;-)
23:43:01kurbjunkjhMikeS, the sc606 does not connect to the i2c interface
23:43:08LloreanSnic: It'll create itself if you boot into the original firmware, and I suspect the ipod process might create it too.
23:43:13kurbjunkit has to be bit banged
23:43:29kurbjunkand you can only run it up to 400 kHz
23:43:40LloreanSnic: Any time something suddenly stops working, you should always look for anything "new" you've done. Plugging it into a machine with iTunes might've been a good tip for what went wrong. ;-P
23:43:49SnicWell, lesson learned. Thanks again for the help, that was really starting to bug me.
23:43:55kurbjunkthe i2c driver that hooks up to the codec chip could be improved though
23:43:55jhMikeSthe generic driver tends to be clunky
23:44:09iobound_is the 3.0 release far away?

23:45:11iobound_scorche, okay, but the difference between the late 2006 builds and tonight's build is massive! and I think this should be more widely announced :)
23:45:47scorcheLlorean: i wasnt offering an opinion...just a fact
23:45:47jhMikeSunless the only code that calls sc606_* functions is IRQ code, IRQs must be disabled by the non-irq code
23:46:11Lloreanscorche: I'd really like to put together a plan of some sort for working toward 3.0, actually. Not involving dates, but specific goals of some sort, at least so there's something hanging over peoples' heads in a general way.
23:46:28SnicBut yeah, that's the only thing I can think of, all of my personal computers are running either Gentoo or Ubuntu. So, no iTunes on any of those, but hook it into her system so she can grab some of my music and BAM, everything's hosed.
23:46:30kurbjunkall the sc606 calls are done in one thread that is called durring the tick task
23:46:48H10_007quickHow do I create a new wiki page?
23:46:49jhMikeStick tasks aren't threads
23:46:56kurbjunksorry, not thread
23:46:56scorcheLlorean: might be something to consider adding to the devcon idea list
23:47:02linuxstbLlorean: IMO the two main aims for 3.0 should be: 1) Get rombox back for all the Archos devices; 2) Have a playback engine everyone is happy with
23:47:02iobound_i just told my ipod-shopping friend about rbx the other day and he hadn't heard about it, which is a shame (but he found it _very_ interesting).
23:47:04kurbjunkbut tick task, irq code
23:47:12kurbjunkI mean sorry
23:47:14Lloreanlinuxstb: That's about how I feel too.
23:47:19H10_007quickI think I will just work on making one and then if people don't want it, just delete it
23:47:50Lloreanlinuxstb: Basically, I'd like to put together a list of pre-freeze requirements. Something to say "We'll enter feature freeze when all of these are done." Of course, flexible enough to take into account changes.
23:47:52kurbjunkshould probabyl fix that old comment then too
23:47:55bluebrotherH10_007quick, why not search for the old pages? I guess they are still around

23:57:02bluebrotherputting the information at some random place isn't a good way imo, all necessary information should be in the manual
23:57:03H10_007quickThe manual is good
23:57:08Lloreanbluebrother: The X5 is on the edge. Its radio seems to be questionable, and it doesn't have dual boot yet still, which seems to be a sticking point for some users. So I think the X5 can easily be argued either wya
23:57:10kurbjunkand possibly the menu if that is due to my commit, but on my older svn tree that worked fine for me, I need to check it in the latest tree too

23:57:18amiconnbluebrother: On X5 and M5 I don'tz trust rockbox at all regarding charging. I always charge in the cowon bootloader
23:57:26jhMikeSkurbjunk: I haven't had any yet...but it's hard to check them all out. I'm sure the button loss was due to my messing around with my patch though.
23:57:28LloreanH10_007quick: The manual is NOT good if it doesn't contain the information a "noob" needs.
23:57:39bluebrotherhmm −− no hardware controlled charging on x5?
23:57:42amiconnNot that rockbox will hurt the battery, but it will probably take ages to charge (if it charges at all)
23:57:43LloreanH10_007quick: Our definition of "good" for the manual somewhat requires that.
23:57:56H10_007quickI don't mean to add information to the wiki, but to organize it by making a page for all the new poeple
23:58:05kurbjunkjhMikeS, ok, I'll look into the blip and red build then
23:58:08bluebrotherthe manual does not require the FAQ, but it requires everything to get started with Rockbox.
23:58:17amiconnbluebrother: It's a combination. The carging itself is hardware controlled, but current values can be changed by software
23:58:24LloreanH10_007quick: Again, why not fix the manual? What information is only available on the wiki, that you think noobs need?
23:58:32bluebrotherthe page for the new people is the manual
23:58:43*linuxstb benchmarks a random MP3 file as being 165% realtime on his ipod
23:58:53amiconnUSB charging at 500mA needs quite special handling, which isn't done in rockbox afaik
