00:03:05XavierGrwhat did you do?
00:03:42linuxstbpearldiver: Can you access the disk via USB?
00:03:45pearldiverwell i tried the rotation build
00:04:09pearldiverwhat i'm getting when i plug the usb and turn it on is:

00:04:42pearldiverand my computer makes a sound that an usb device is connected but i dont see it in the explorer / as a drive no matter what
00:04:52pearldiverhowever, if i go to Safely Remove Hardware properties, the system sees it as Toshiba Mobile Audioplayer with the Toshiba Hard Drive as a component but no letter is being assigned to it
00:05:09pearldiverlinuxstb so as you see i cannot
00:05:38TrueJournalslinuxstb: Just the person I was looking for!
00:05:54*linuxstb is busy reading 3 days worth of IRC logs...
00:05:56XavierGrpearldiver: you have tried to open it and connect it to USB just like the wiki says?
00:06:05pearldiverXavierGr yep, same thing
00:06:11markunpearldiver: maybe there is no more partition?
00:06:25pearldivermarkun thats what i thought
00:06:31TrueJournalslinuxstb: You commented on FS # 6705 that you got even better results removing the synth_full function from IRAM... can you help me do this?
00:06:32pearldiverbut how come it disappeared
00:06:49DerPapstcan anyone tell me how to get the midi player built? i'm not that fammiliar with the build system. (adding something to SOURCES and SUBDIRS?)
00:06:56pearldiveryeah Safely Remove Hardware properties shows that there's no partition
00:07:08pearldivermarkun would this be the end?
00:07:15markunjust make a new FAT32 parition
00:07:37markunor you can just give up of course ;)
00:07:54pearldiverbut how if i can't access it
00:08:25markunpearldiver: how do you create a partition for a HDD which 'shows now drive letter'?
00:08:51markunis there no disk manager tool for windows or something?
00:08:56DerPapstit might be a good idea to add compiling instructions for the midi plugin on the PluginMidiPlay wiki page as well..
00:08:58pearldiverwith the partition soft obviosuly
00:09:15markunpearldiver: but that doesn't work with removable drives?
00:09:26linuxstbTrueJournals: Just change ".icode" to ".text" in the new .S files
00:09:31pearldivermarkun somehow i thought it doesn't :P
00:09:37 Quit atsea- (Remote closed the connection)
00:09:37pearldiverbut let me try of course
00:09:38TrueJournalslinuxstb: Cool, thanks
00:10:29markunpearldiver: and if windows can't do it there are other OS' which can do it for you
00:10:39DerPapstmarkun: there is something in windows.
00:11:04DerPapstmarkun: Contol pannel... (have to translate...)
00:11:11XavierGrpearldiver: you can format it if windows see the disk but there is no letter to open it
00:11:25XavierGrgo to computer management
00:11:36DerPapstthat was it :)

00:13:37XavierGrif you can find the disk there you can format it
00:13:47pearldiverlet me try it XavierGr
00:13:59XavierGrafter the format you will see the letter in explorer and then be able to put there the OF or rockbox

00:16:01mpeccorinianyone: how much memory is assigned to a plugin buffer?
00:16:26 Quit markun (Remote closed the connection)
00:17:13XavierGrpearldiver" yes you will loose all data
00:17:59pearldiverwhat if i use some partition software ?
00:18:07linuxstbmpeccorini: On the Archos devices, 32KB, on the other devices (apart from iFP7xx), 512KB. I'm not sure about the iFP7xx (it only has 1MB RAM in total...)
00:18:43linuxstbmpeccorini: But Chessbox is a special case on the Archos devices - it takes over the whole available RAM (about 1.5MB).
00:18:53DerPapstso i guess i have to add midi to SUBDIRS at lie 37 or so?
00:18:57mpeccorinilinuxstb: thanks, I'm implementing chessbox as a viewer as you suggested
00:19:07mpeccoriniso far it opens a PGN file and lists all the games
00:19:16mpeccorinithen you select a game and it shows the list of moves

00:19:54XavierGrthe process though won't be failsafe and you might end up with lots of lost data
00:20:05JdGordonlol @ peturs vid :)

00:22:23*DerPapst is slightly confused
00:22:50DerPapstbecause all the other plugins that are in a seperate dir have one
00:23:08mrmagic526Just want to say great work on the 80 gig ipod this weekend. I do have one question about the patch if anyone can answer it. I just reinstalled cygwin and got the latest svn. I applied the patch and it crashes with an error when building it....

00:27:33linuxstbDerPapst: What are you trying to do? midiplay is already compiled.
00:27:52mrmagic526guess I'll have to check that one....
00:27:59mrmagic526just trying to see how it works on my 80 gig
00:28:15mrmagic526used to use rock box on my 60gig.... i miss rockbox so much lol
00:28:20DerPapstoh? haven't found it .rockbox\rocks
00:28:34 Join hcs [0] (n=agashlin@rockbox/contributor/hcs)
00:28:39linuxstbDerPapst: RTFM.... "viewers" are in .rockbox/viewers/
00:29:12DerPapstoh. didn't know it belongs to viewers. soryy
00:29:44*DerPapst is new to rockbox
00:29:55linuxstbWe have a fine manual ;)
00:30:12DerPapsthaven't found it there
00:30:24mrmagic526it could be me.... I never used cygwin before. My main computer is down and I'm using a piece of crap win98 machine..... I usually use vmware.... I used to do some custom builds for my 60 gig
00:30:37DerPapsti've searched the pdf for "Midi" with 0 results
00:31:03linuxstbOK, midi itself may not be documented, but it should explain the concept of viewers.
00:31:43linuxstbBe warned the midi plugin doesn't work well on ipods - IIRC, it plays audio at 22.050KHz, but the Rockbox audio driver only supports 44.1KHz...
00:31:48DerPapstwell but how do i know if it belongs to viewers with only looking at the source?
00:32:06bluebrotherlook into apps/plugins/viewers.config
00:32:11DerPapsti'll keep that in mind
00:32:14bluebrotherif it's listed there it's a viewer
00:32:25DerPapstah ok.
00:32:36bluebrotheror at least, you can invoke it as viewer
00:32:54bluebrothersome plugins can be both viewer and regular plugin. Sudoku for example is one
00:32:57 Quit Siltaar ("Aurevoir -")
00:33:10mpeccorinibluebrother: and very soon chessbox too ;)
00:33:52bluebrotherwhatever ... I'm to weak at chess for playing against the gnuchess engine ;)
00:34:07DerPapstheh.. i guess i have to find out the difference between viewer and plugin fist by reading some docs.
00:34:11 Part juxtap
00:34:40bluebrotherif you invoke a plugin as viewer then it gets the filename passed
00:34:50mpeccoriniDerPapst: they're basically the same, but plugins use the filename they receive to do something
00:35:05bluebrotherbut viewers that rely on a file (like jpegviewer) can't be run otherwise
00:35:19DerPapstah ok
00:36:15 Quit Thundercloud_ (Remote closed the connection)
00:36:52DerPapstmrmagic526: do you need the bootloader as well? or do you have some kind of 3rd party bootloader?
00:38:53mrmagic526nah i got ipod linux
00:39:09mrmagic526loader 2.5b6
00:39:11enycmrmagic526: iirc ipodlinux works an older units... rockbox works on newer units
00:39:21DerPapstlinuxstb: one question about ipodpatcher (once again): where does it get the generation from? some mbr magic?
00:39:26mrmagic526i got the 80 gig ipod
00:39:50enycmrmagic526: wel go look at the webpage then... you should find out what "generation" ipod you have exactly
00:39:54mrmagic526i've been hacking ipods for a while. Just got super excited to see rockbox for my 80 gig.... problem is this piece of crap computer isn't compiling it
00:39:57linuxstbDerPapst: From the firmware version number (in the firmware partition).
00:40:01mrmagic526I know what I have
00:40:05mrmagic526it's a 5.5 80 gig
00:40:08DerPapstmrmagic526: ok. but you have to make a loader.cfg for rockbox. autodetectioni is broken in this version.
00:40:09mrmagic526I have linux on it already
00:40:11TrueJournalsmrmagic526: rockbox doesn't work on the 80 gig...
00:40:21DerPapstlinuxstb: thanks.
00:40:26mrmagic526I got a loader config since I have a wikipedia linux on my ipod as well
00:40:29scorcheTrueJournals: actually, it does
00:40:29bagawkTrueJournals: amiconn put up a patch lst night
00:40:30enycmrmagic526: I dont expect you need to compile rockbox? you can just use prebuilt rockbox?
00:40:37DerPapstTrueJournals: wrong ;)
00:40:40mrmagic526enyc not for the 80 gig
00:40:42TrueJournalsAh, OK, my bad...
00:40:44mrmagic526it's not in the svn yet
00:40:48 Quit Domonoky (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
00:40:51mrmagic526patch released today
00:40:52bagawkmrmagic526: I can send you a build that works on the 80gb
00:40:58TrueJournalsHadn't heard about that... thanks for letting me know
00:41:07linuxstbDerPapst: There isn't a firmware version (afaik) in the 3g or earlier firmware, so ipodpatcher just assumes a 3g (as that's all Rockbox works on). If you're using it for other reasons, you'll need to solve that issue...
00:41:09mrmagic526cool. I'm on the web irc so email it to
00:42:14DerPapstlinuxstb: i thought about a force function.. if it doesn't find the magic in the mbr
00:42:14 Part TrueJournals
00:42:27mrmagic526cool thanks
00:42:33bagawkmrmagic526: I assume you have loader2 since you have ipodlinux, in that case just mv rockbox.ipod that is in .rockbox to the root of the ipod
00:42:45linuxstbDerPapst: No, just get rid of the MBR check altogether...
00:42:48mrmagic526I'm pretty good at compiling but my good pc is down and I'm using an old piece of crap that I had to put cygwin on instead of vmware
00:42:56mrmagic526cannot wait to try it
00:43:55mrmagic526yup yup
00:44:15linuxstbDerPapst: I'm not sure if ipodpatcher does, but it should check that the first partition is type 0 (Empty) and the second partition is FAT32 (or HFS for macpods). That should be enough to identify ipods (along with checking the contents of that empty partition for a valid firmware image)
00:44:39DerPapstlinuxstb: done that already. i just wonderd if i have to give ipodpatcher the generation.
00:44:45 Join bospaadje [0] (
00:45:54DerPapstlinuxstb: i've disabled another check so it prints the partition table of any usb/fiwi device and errors then if's not an ipod.

00:53:47mrmagic526time to get my themes and doom setup and pacman...... I'm so excited I haven't had rockbox since I was an idiot and sold my 60 gig to get my 80 gig the first day thinking rockbox would work ..... dumb stupid me......

02:03:30kkurbjunwhat problem are you running into?
02:03:43pearldiverit displays SYSTEM ERROR 00000020
02:04:00pearldiveri tried formatting it with gigabeat utility
02:04:08pearldiverand just copying the files over, OF and rockbox
02:04:11pearldiversame error
02:04:19kkurbjunI was running into that problem as well
02:04:27kkurbjunI ended up doing a low level format of the drive
02:04:37kkurbjunso it writes zero's to everything
02:04:44kkurbjunyou won't hav a partition anymore
02:04:45DerPapstgood night at all

02:05:05pearldiverso just low level format it and copy the files over again?
02:05:06kkurbjunthen I used windows xp's administrative tools, computer management to creat a new partition
02:05:21kkurbjunthen I formatted with the gigabeat formatter
02:05:28kkurbjunand then copied the files over
02:05:36pearldiverjust the rockbox?
02:05:46pearldiverno need to bother with OF?
02:06:20kkurbjun I think that was the tool I used
02:06:44kkurbjunit wiped at least the begining of the drive then I got seek errors so I killed the program and went from there
02:06:51kkurbjunno, I dind't touch the of
02:07:07kkurbjunI just copied over a system folder from one of my other gigabeats
02:07:17kkurbjunI think the system folder has to have special permisions though

02:09:03pearldiveri have my old one backed up i think
02:09:10kkurbjunok, that's good then
02:09:52pearldiverbut what kind of special permissions?
02:11:48kkurbjunit has to be labeled a system folder I believe, but I don't know how windows labels folders that way or stores that info in the fat, or wherever it puts it

02:17:14kkurbjunI would use the one you have backed up
02:17:40pearldiverso its no problem to boot it the 1st time around with the rockbox bootloader?
02:18:42pearldiverbtw, i lost my partition due to the custom build with rotation patch

04:50:40StygianI'm now going to go into the 'firmware' and 'bootloader' directories and use the 'build' command. Is that correct?

06:43:13krustyclowhy cant rockbox access the music i added in itunes ?
06:43:21krustycloif you just drag and drop files
06:43:36krazykitbecause itunes randomly renames files and puts them in arbitrary directories
06:43:39krustyclowhy cant it scan the files in the music_control folder and read the id3 tags and add it
06:43:42aliaskIt can, use the database feature
06:44:01krazykitunless the songs are crippled, then they won't play
06:44:14krustycloyou mean use drm ?
06:44:34krustyclonope i refuse to buy drm crippled music
06:48:05krustycloif i enable the database do i have to load it every time i boot my ipod
06:48:12krustycloor only after i add music in itunes ?
06:48:35aliaskIt needs to generate the database once, and then it just monitors any changes from then onwards.
06:49:26krustycloso far i am really impressed....
06:49:46krustyclocan i i erased songs that are in my itunes database from within rockbox ?
06:49:59krustycloor do i have to use apples firmware nd itunes to do that
06:52:16krazykititunes, probably, as rockbox only removes the file, not the .db entry
06:52:57krustycloahh i see
06:53:34krustycloafter i use rockbox and am sure that its still stable i think ill just remove all the itunes db files and add it in rockbox format
06:54:29aliaskThat's a better idea, when you play the files in rockbox, the playlist entry is the filename, not the tags so you get an entry like "EQKA.mp3"
06:55:30krustycloi have seen an entry in that format in the database menu in rockbox
06:56:10aliaskIf you play the song in rockbox, and then go to "view playlist" in the WPS context menu, you will see what I mean.
06:57:13aliaskIt just makes browsing by playlist a little cumbersome
06:57:35krustycloim gonna just go for it and remove everhything from itunes and add it in rockbox

07:11:49krustycloaliask, ok i removed the music. is it safe to delete /iPod_Control ?
07:12:41aliaskIf you really want. It's a hidden folder though, so rockbox won't see it by default.
07:13:25krustycloi can also add the music in as many sublevels as i want right ?
07:13:35krustycloerr sub folders
07:13:49krustyclobecause i was thinking of putting all my music in /Music
07:16:17krustyclothis is so much better than using itunes
07:16:35aliaskI agree :)
07:17:35krustycloi have over 11K songs and tried using itunes to manage all of my music but its difficult to have 2 databases across 2 computers. especially when one is a mac and the other is a pc
07:18:25aliaskWell the file method will be a lot nicer then.
07:19:10krustycloi originally wanted to use rockbox for its ogg support but just noticed that ogg and non-ipod standard codecs dont work anyways with rockbox on an ipod
07:19:42aliaskWhat do you mean? Ogg should work fine on iPod

09:12:06scorchethe issue is also having devcon in a city where no one has "connections" such as the contactor building...meeting space can be very expensive, and doing something like i am doing with devcon-west (having it in a large suite in a hotel) is much cheaper than renting meeting space

09:14:11scorchewe arent all rich...
09:14:40amiconnAnother way to reduce travel costs is just setting the date early enough. Flights are cheaper when booked early
09:14:55GodEaterscorche: I don't think it's about being "rich" it's about property prices being WAY lower :) But I do realise it's an idea mostly based on fictional TV

10:02:12krustyclothey houldnt be messin around in terminal if they dunno wtf theyre doing
10:02:29B4gderthe unzip problems the mac os x users have is proof of silliness imho
10:02:39GodEaterit's completely braindead
10:02:42krustyclowhy ?
10:02:46peturexactly. that's why we need an easy tool for those users
10:02:51krustycloos x comes with a built in unzip utility
10:03:21B4gderyes, and that clearly isn't good enough for users
10:03:23GodEaterbecause it unzips the file into a folder called "rockbox"

10:04:25B4gderI disagree
10:04:27*petur feels sorry the vid only covers rbutil, but the camera just ran until battery empty, which was after 10mins :(
10:04:31GodEaterI disagree too
10:04:45GodEaterOSX's unzip utility shouldn't invent folders
10:05:06LinusNkrustyclo: and the reason that they fail to copy it is because .rockbox is hidden
10:05:27B4gderyou can't blame the users for not being good at working around flaws in the unzip untility
10:05:28scorchepetur: perhaps next time we should record video through camera and audio though rockbox and sync later? really is dreadful
10:05:29krustyclousually i unzip it in terminal
10:05:37LinusNthere is no way to unzip the contents of the zip directly onto the device using the builtin zip tool
10:05:40krustycloyou know what the real problem is ?
10:05:45scorcheor even have a decent video recorder
10:05:50GodEateryes. "OSX is evil"
10:05:55B4gderkrustyclo: mac os x? ;-P
10:05:55krustycloits a lack of understanding of unix based file systems and naming conventions
10:05:58GodEaterwe already said ;)
10:06:07Zagorkrustyclo: from the osx team, yes
10:06:18krustycloi used linux so i know that files beginning with . are hidden

10:07:10GodEaterhow about the "never used windows or linux" OSX users ?

10:09:55krustyclowhat if there were 10,000 files in the zip

10:16:07linuxstbGodEater: ipodpatcher itself doesn't care, but the ipodpatcher detection code is used by rbutil which installs daily/current builds - so it needs to report the 64MB targets.

10:21:57B4gderonly if we have a bunch of such users who want the bleeding stuff
10:22:22GodEaterhang on, current = svn right ? Yes definitely in that case.
10:22:35GodEaterI'd use it
10:22:57B4gderfirst more coffee, then I'll poke on the script

10:23:08GodEaterbtw - British Telecom are still proving to be the world's biggest pains in the ass, I still have no internet at my new home - but my build server is yearning to come back to the gang.

10:23:47bluebrotherkrustyclo: you can replace the mini's hard drive with a CF card
10:24:14krustycloyea im reading about it but it looks kind of tricky
10:24:30bluebrotheryou need to make a small adjustment to the RB source, but that's not complicated
10:24:31GodEaterlinuxstb: that's what I think too - we always ask people to use svn over "daily" if they report a problem.
10:24:38bluebrotherI tried that mod, it's really easy.
10:24:53bluebrotherthe only problem is that there are cards around that don't work "good"
10:24:57GodEatertbh, I think we should drop the daily's
10:25:53krustyclobluebrother, it isnt worth doing it even if i get an 8gb compactflash card
10:25:57B4gderthe dailies serve two purposes
10:26:02linuxstbGodEater: The dailies are useful when users report new problems - they can go back over the last 30 days and check.
10:26:19GodEaterah I see
10:26:28GodEatermaybe we should rename them "troubleshooting" builds
10:26:29linuxstbB4gder: two purposes?
10:26:29B4gderand the fact that they're built on a single host also makes the situation somewhat more controlled in case of odd errors
10:26:44B4gderthat has helped us in the past
10:26:48GodEaterin cases of odd binutils behaviour you mean ?
10:26:52GodEateror the like
10:27:02GodEatermakes sense
10:27:38linuxstbB4gder: BTW, I've been reading the devcon report - what does dropping support for ROMbox mean? Will it be removed from SVN, or just left as it is today?
10:28:06GodEaterthere's a report now ?
10:28:19B4gderlinuxstb: mostly that we leave it as it is today, and no actual effort in making it ever work again
10:28:25linuxstbGodEater: The wiki page

10:29:33bluebrotherso the mod itself is quite interesting.
10:29:57LinusNamiconn: hi!
10:29:58bluebrothermy problem is only that those cards aren't too cheap and I don't have too much money to spend on something like that
10:30:13amiconnlinuxstb: Just the fact that we accept rombox became too big for most archoses nowadays.
10:30:20krustycloi dont want to shell out a lot just to go from 4-8gb
10:30:28amiconnOf course we should still try to write nice compact and efficient code
10:30:42bluebrotherhehe. I did that anyway because I replaced the battery
10:30:44GodEateramiconn: of course :)

10:31:15B4gderat next commit there should be a 64mb video version built
10:31:36amiconnLinusN: Where did you find something that says identify word 47 bit 8 is a "validity" bit?
10:31:50GodEaterI assume detecting the amount of memory and allocating the right amount at runtime is non-trivial ?
10:32:02amiconnNone of the ata-5, ata-6 and ata-7 specs I checked say that, and none of my hdd targets have that set
10:32:12B4gderGodEater: for the 64mb you mean?
10:32:40B4gderGodEater: it requires us to re-arrange where we put stuff in memory somewhat
10:33:03amiconnI also checked the multisectors reported by my 6 hdd targets. All report 16 except the mini G2's microdrive, which even does report 32
10:33:36linuxstbamiconn: Does your patch still need testing on "normal" ipod videos?

10:33:43amiconnBut the ata specs say that '0' is a reserved value, so the G5.5/80's hdd violates the ata specs here
10:34:13amiconnlinuxstb: Yes. I am also interested in a filesystem performance test patched vs. unpatched, if possible

10:37:45B4gderthey're both the same
10:37:46linuxstbamiconn: OK, I'll do that, but it won't be until this evening. Adding support for the 80GB means a new ipodpatcher released with updated bootloaders, and there are some things I would like to fix in ipodpatcher (and the bootloaders) before doing that. But I should be able to do that this evening as well.
10:37:55krustyclobluebrother, you here ?
10:38:00B4gderGodEater: just one using a fixed name and the other a dated one
10:38:33GodEaterI meant in amiconn's diagram
10:38:54B4gderGodEater: the left is the current, and the right is the proposed new one
10:38:55GodEaterI assume the one on the left is the ideal layout
10:39:03GodEaterI meant right
10:39:10linuxstbGodEater: The problem is that plugins and codecs are compiled and linked to be executed from fixed addresses at the end of RAM. The suggested fix (amiconn's diagram) is to move plugins and codecs to the start of RAM instead.
10:39:30GodEaterand then just extend the buffer off into space...
10:39:34GodEaternice idea
10:40:01GodEaterdoes that mean that the codecs / plugins will now have to fit into a given amount of space ?

12:36:06B4gderi think the plan is to only do that on the targets that need it
12:36:24linuxstbThat idea has been around for over a year - I assumed that because the simple solution (separate builds) had been committed, that no-one was stepping forward to do the nice way.
12:36:38B4gdera correct assumption I'd say
12:36:46B4gderbut perhaps amiconn has seconds thoughts ;-)
12:37:31linuxstbAlthough maybe the nice way will be easier, given all the effort (updating rbutil, bootloaders, documentation etc...) required for separate builds.
12:38:00markuncan we also detect the 8MB mod for the archoses?
12:38:27 Quit Lynx_ (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
12:39:03Nico_Pwhat changes does the "nice way" invlove ?
12:40:57amiconnI think the ram rearranging won't be difficult, but it involves a rather large memcpy, so I'm not sure whether we want that on all targets
12:40:58linuxstbChanging the .lds files, changing crt0-pp.S to relocate the main firmware code, and maybe changing some config.h variables (I'm not sure about all the places the plugin/codec load addresses are)
12:41:20amiconnThe most difficult part would be adjusting the linker script
12:41:34amiconnIf we go that route, we should probably do it for all targets
12:41:48linuxstbThe memcpy was why I suggested the bootloaders simply load to the correct address to start with.
12:42:13amiconnIt would even allow to unify the h100 and h120 builds, if we use the memory size information also to adjust for the only other difference between h100 and h120
12:42:38amiconnlinuxstb: There is no single 'correct address', at least not on arm, because of the vectors
12:43:08linuxstbWe don't know how big the vectors are?
12:43:46amiconnWe know, but the binary nees to be distributed to 2 different addresses
12:44:04linuxstbIsn't it just the vectors that need copying?
12:44:17amiconnVectors must stay at 0 on arm, and everything else moved up by sizeof(codec_ram)+sizeof(plugin_ram)
12:44:50linuxstbYes, so we load at 1MB+a little bit from the start of RAM, and just copy the vectors.
12:44:54amiconnOr you load everything 1MB up, and then copy the vectors the other direction
12:45:08B4gdersounds like a better memcpy...
12:45:19amiconnIt would be exactly 1MB, because the vectors could still be at the start
12:45:31Nico_Perr, silly question: what are the "vectors" ?
12:45:39linuxstbThe interrupt vectors
12:45:56Nico_Pah ok
12:46:46linuxstbBut the downside is yet another forced bootloader upgrade...
12:47:12amiconnYes, and we need to make sure new bootloaders won't load old binaries and vice versa
12:47:38amiconnOr perhaps they could continue to support old binaries for a while, but that means even more checking
12:48:00pondlifeWould it be possible to put a nice warning so the main code can tell the user to update their bootloader, or will a memory rearrangement make some kind of Abort the only option?
12:48:38amiconnAnd on archos we cannot just change the load address, because rockbox is loaded by the archos loader unless it's flashed
12:49:09amiconnOtoh it woulöd be less of a problem with the self-decompressing binary on rec v1

13:08:54amiconnIt jumps for me every few days
13:09:10B4gderI should make the small device pics use sizes too

15:07:18PhoeniXYZthanks for the font issue :) but i've got another problem. when looking at my songs in database mode then the songs in albums with more than one disc are sorted in the wrong way. there are the two first songs first, then the second songs... and so on. is there any chance to force rockbox to sort by the disc tag in id3v2?
15:08:18PhoeniXYZ"thanks for help concerning the font issue" i wanted to say, sorry
15:09:17linuxstbPhoeniXYZ: I don't think Rockbox supports a disc number tag, although I seem to remember seeing a patch for it.
15:10:07linuxstbA workaround would be to number the first disc's tracks as (e.g.) 101-115 and the second disc as (e.g.) 201-213.
15:10:27GodEateror name the albums with the disc number in (as I do)
15:10:31*amiconn just indicates the disk number in the album tag
15:10:50PhoeniXYZthat would result in a big rework for my whole library
15:11:17linuxstbGodEater/amiconn: But that wouldn't show them as a single album in the database.
15:11:28GodEaterNo it wouldn't
15:11:36*GodEater accepts this limitation
15:11:46PhoeniXYZi found a patch but that just adds the feature right? the gui wouldnt display it?
15:11:53*amiconn too
15:11:59*linuxstb too ;)
15:12:05amiconnlinuxstb: Track numbers are limited to 2 digits
15:12:19linuxstbThey are? Even for norwegian language courses?
15:12:40B4gderRockbox is surely not norwegian compliant
15:12:50*GodEater hopes not
15:12:52amiconnEven when the database guesses track numbers, which is still in there and it's annoying :(
15:13:02*linuxstb trusts Nico will fix the norwegian bug
15:13:42linuxstbWhat limits track numbers to 2 digits?
15:13:48GodEaterlord knows
15:14:07GodEaterI thought I'd seen bluebrother post something about using tagnavi syntax to get three digit ones

15:14:33PhoeniXYZok.. one last question for now, how to apply a .patch file?
15:14:46linuxstbIn id3.h, "track_string" is a char* (same as the other strings), and tracknum is an int.
15:14:49amiconnI didn't check the source, but limiting track numbers to 2 digits is common

16:03:35GenjuroXLgoogle didn't really answer my question :)
16:03:46B4gderI don't think we have one (yet)
16:04:04GenjuroXLhm, i need some proof that flac and musepack are the fastest codecs in rockbox
16:04:10peturbut we now have a tool to make one ;)
16:04:24GenjuroXL(random mpc haters on hydrogenaudio questioning the mpc decoding speed)
16:04:25linuxstbGenjuroXL: That's not a very scientific approach... ;)
16:04:47B4gderGenjuroXL: we have a tool you can run to test codec speed in rockbox
16:04:54GenjuroXLi don't even have a portable :)
16:05:09GenjuroXLalso, i do use a scientific approach now and then (studying physics :b)
16:05:17linuxstbFLAC definitely isn't the fastest lossless codec - wav/aiff would be first, then shorten, then FLAC.
16:05:39GenjuroXLwav and aiff are usually just pcm
16:05:44GenjuroXLnot really lossless compression :)
16:05:48 Join Gursikh [0] (n=khalsa@unaffiliated/gursikh)
16:05:59B4gderthey're lossless, not compression ;-)
16:06:04linuxstbGenjuroXL: I just mean you should be asking which are the fastest codecs, not asking for evidence to support a guess...
16:06:12simmelIsn't wavepack faster and better than FLAC?
16:06:16GenjuroXLlinuxstb: that's fine too
16:06:27GenjuroXLthat's why i asked for a comparison table in the first place :)
16:06:50GenjuroXLsimmel: i think they're on par on machines with FPU, no idea about fixed point decoders
16:07:20B4gderI'd like one of those tables too
16:08:24GenjuroXLsimmel: wavpack compression ratio is definitely better than flac :)
16:08:26linuxstbGenjuroXL: Also, you should be careful to make it clear you're just talking about Rockbox, not the codecs in general. Not all of Rockbox's codecs have had the same level of optimisation effort applied to them. e.g. on ipods, vorbis used to be faster than mp3, but I think with optimisations, mp3 is now faster than vorbis....
16:08:44GenjuroXLi remember reading that mpc is the fastest lossy codec in rockbox with speed comparable to flac
16:09:08GenjuroXLand didn't Buschel submit a speedup patch for mpc decoding the other day?
16:09:38linuxstbYes, he did.
16:09:53GenjuroXLlinuxstb: actually, mpc doesn't only win in rockbox :)
16:10:02krazykitsimmel, somewhat, but wavpack isn't nearly as widely supported
16:10:02GenjuroXLit's the fastest in FP mode too
16:10:17GenjuroXLbut that's not relevant here
16:10:28amiconnwavpack decoding is definitely slower than flac decoding in rockbox
16:11:44amiconnscorche: Didn't you want to make a set of codec test files, or was that Soap?
16:12:10linuxstbGenjuroXL: But I'm sure we would all like someone to arrange such a test. How would you compare two codecs though? Same bitrate, or same "quality"?
16:12:22linuxstbamiconn: That was Soap.
16:12:41linuxstbamiconn: But he wasn't happy with his chosen track, so is still (afaik) searching for something better.
16:12:45krazykitlinuxstb, both, ideally
16:13:08GenjuroXLlinuxstb: bitrate shouldn't really matter when it comes to decoding speed
16:13:15linuxstbGenjuroXL: It does
16:13:20GenjuroXLbigger files, sure
16:13:28GenjuroXLbut isn't that a non-issue?
16:13:32B4gder"shouldn't really" is not good for scientific comparisions...
16:13:55linuxstbGenjuroXL: Try it yourself - check the decoding speed of 128kbps vs 320kbps with any lossy codec.
16:14:06GenjuroXLcbr is old
16:14:19GenjuroXLi'll compare mpc q5 and q10, ok?
16:14:21krazykityou'd want to test files with the accepted transparent cd quality of the various codecs
16:14:22linuxstbYes, but it's a fairer test of decoding speed.
16:15:51linuxstbGenjuroXL: OK, but then also compare two files at the same quality with different bitrates
16:17:45preglowbitrate has a large impact
16:17:52simmelkrazykit No, wavepack is alsmost completley unknown.
16:17:53preglowand matters very much
16:18:42GenjuroXLlinuxstb: 328x for q5 and 304x for q7
16:18:49preglowGenjuroXL: buschel's patch helps very much, but i'm still haven't decided what i think of trading quality off for speed
16:19:07GenjuroXLpreglow: wonder if it matters in a portable environment
16:19:13preglowand we need to decide what stance we have on codecs' output being depedent on target cpu
16:19:20preglowGenjuroXL: bitrate?
16:19:20GenjuroXLi don't like the idea of sacrificing quality for speed either
16:19:38GenjuroXLpreglow: that speed test was on windows on my pc
16:19:41GenjuroXLbitrates are
16:19:46preglowGenjuroXL: it does matter, and more than that
16:19:55GenjuroXL182 kbps for q5 and 241 kbps for q7
16:20:57GenjuroXLq7: 1,2614107883817427385892116182573 kbps/1x decoding speed
16:21:11preglow128kbps MP3: 345.93% realtime
16:21:12preglowVBR MP3: 180.73% realtime
16:21:14preglowlike that, for example
16:21:27preglowthe same will apply for musepack, somewhat
16:21:48GenjuroXLerr, actually no.. calc.exe hates me
16:21:55preglowthe huffman decoding step is quite intensive
16:22:13GenjuroXL0.79 for q7 and 0.56 for q5
16:22:38GenjuroXL</useless numbers>
16:22:52GenjuroXLpreglow: btw, have you tried porting sv8 over to rockbox?
16:23:41preglowlittle time for rockbox as it is, and i'm going to wait with that job until you're done
16:23:50GenjuroXLfair enough
16:23:53GenjuroXLit's not final yet
16:24:01GenjuroXLr2d is working his ass off, though
16:24:12GenjuroXLsv7->8 converter is nice
16:24:22preglowwhich is good, but the less i have to do, the better, so i'll wait
16:24:36GenjuroXLonce it's done it should be as easy as updating libmpcdec
16:24:50preglowit won't be, but it won't be too much work either
16:25:14preglowstock libmpcdec wouldn't ever run realtime in rockbox
16:25:32GenjuroXLneeds more asm
16:26:08preglowdepends what target, doesn't need too much on arm, but on coldfire it needs asm and iram usage
16:26:20GenjuroXLcoldfire is that m68k clone, right?
16:26:34GenjuroXLamiga500 on steroids :)
16:26:34preglowi had quite some fun making it work fast enough on that
16:27:06GenjuroXLwhich players use a coldfire?
16:27:07preglowthere's actually still some potential for speedup, but i can't be bothered when it's as fast as it is on coldfiore
16:27:26preglowsansa too
16:27:28preglowand gigabeat
16:27:55GenjuroXLapple is cheating by using DSPs to decode their stuff :)
16:28:04preglowthey use the arm
16:28:09GenjuroXLipod decodes in software mode?
16:28:14GenjuroXLthat's new :)
16:28:14preglowthey only use something else for video and audio in videos
16:28:26preglowordinary audio files are decoded on the arm
16:29:01preglowmusepack being fast isn't weird
16:29:04preglowit's a pretty low complexity codec
16:29:17preglowlayer2 with enhancements, more or less
16:29:36GenjuroXLsplit signal into subbands, quantize subbands
16:29:38preglowgiven more effort than already put into it, it can be even faster
16:29:42GenjuroXLcompress losslessly
16:30:11GenjuroXLwell, more speed means more battery life, so it might be worth it
16:30:26preglowsure, but i stop caring once it reaches a certain point
16:30:31preglowwhich has happened long since for musepack
16:31:00preglowi still have to maintain some kind of motivation for doing what i do, and that vanishes if i have to write half the codec in asm, heh
16:31:22GenjuroXLblame the linux people
16:31:26 Join juxtap [0] (
16:31:31GenjuroXLolder musepack made heavy use of asm
16:31:40GenjuroXLthen people wanted a C version of the lib
16:31:53GenjuroXLbecause pure C is the best (tm)
16:31:59preglowsure, it is
16:32:01preglowbut why remove the asm?
16:32:08preglowyou could use it if applicable for target
16:32:17GenjuroXLno idea, ask Lefungus and r2d :)
16:32:46preglowstill wouldn't help us much, though, unless you had arm and coldfire asm
16:33:09pondlifeAnyone know what sort of hard drive connector is used in the H340?
16:33:21markunpreglow: which brings us back to giving more of our changes to the original projects
16:33:28GenjuroXLpreglow: we need some oldschool amiga programmers, those people know about m68k asm :)
16:33:49preglowmarkun: i tried that with musepack, met plenty of indifference
16:33:56preglowso i keep them local
16:34:10preglowdoesn't matter much for me anyway
16:34:30GenjuroXLindifference probably because decoding speed is more than fast enough on PCs
16:34:45preglowsure, i don't harbor i grudge
16:34:56preglowasm is a pain in the ass to maintain too
16:35:03preglowsince few people do it
16:35:12markunpreglow: it's only interesting for people who want to use the codecs on similar platforms
16:35:13preglowbut if the code is factored properly, it's just a case of disabling it
16:35:57pondlifeJust wondered if the MK6008GAH is a suitable replacement drive for an H340 - e.g.
16:36:28markunpreglow: does it have a ZIF connector?
16:36:29B4gderpondlife: petur replaced his hd in h3xx
16:36:34markuneh, for pondlife
16:36:47peturyes but mine was a 8007
16:36:52preglowspeex guy seemed interested in our changes, but we have none yet
16:37:14peturand the last digit is the revision, so anything above 7 might be a problem
16:37:32PaulJampondlife: the MK6008GAH has a zif connector that doesn't fit into the h300. you would need to find a MK6006GAH.
16:37:51pondlifeAh, so what's the connector of the ...06GAH called?
16:38:00pondlifeA different sort of ZIF..? ;)
16:38:17peturATA or IDE
16:38:31peturthey mention ZIF it is ZIF
16:38:37pondlifeOld school notebook ATA then...

20:47:34DerPapsta1titude: rockbox has no usb driver for the iPod. so if you want to sync your ipod you either have to use diskmode or the OF
20:47:50linuxstbDerPapst: We just need to disable those IRAM optimisations for mpegplayer - the build system now compiles libmad separately for the main codec and mpegplayer, so that's straightforward.
20:48:14a1titudeDerPapst: ahh, thanks
20:49:22DerPapstlinuxstb: so moving mpegplayer out of iram means that it runs even slower than it does already now on 3Gs?

22:49:09Nico_PBagder: there's something about anonymous contributors I'm wondering about and that isn't mentioned in the wiki page: taking code from an anonymous contributor under one's responsability and committing it
22:49:52Bagderwe generally don't like that either
22:49:53Nico_Pdid you discuss that at devcon ? does the policy have something to say on that ?
22:50:15Bagderif the code piece/change is small, then we can consider it fair use
22:50:19XavierGrwell I don't see a problem if the anonymous contributor is ok with that
22:50:19bluebrotherpetur: did you post the devcon scrobbler file already (and me missed that?)
22:50:44BagderXavierGr: if we would be ok with that, we could just as well allow anonymous contributions
22:50:58peturI just asked if I should post the scrobbler log
22:51:01amiconnlinuxstb: I've just committed the extended test_disk stuff
22:51:09XavierGrwell some contributors don't like to just "dontae" the code under a different name
22:51:24bluebrotherI'd be interested in that playlist ;-)
22:51:30BagderXavierGr: yes, so we don't accept their code
22:51:53Nico_PBagder: then maybe adding something about it in the various pages about contributing would be good
22:51:57XavierGrBagder: ok but what about those that are willing to just pretend that the commiter coded it?
22:52:27BagderNico_P: that we should, yes

22:56:04XavierGryeah I noticed that now
22:56:52Bagderand really, very many larger projects these days reject anonymous contributions
22:57:00Bagderso its not like we are unique or anything
22:57:16badsheepywhats the reasoning behind rejecting them
22:57:29badsheepyi dont see how it hurts anything?
22:57:31XavierGrwell again, I thought that the problem arised with people that did want to take credit
22:58:03Bagderbadsheepy: two reasons: we want the project to be by real people with real names
22:58:15XavierGrbut if the commiter adopts it as his code then there is no anonymosity
22:58:18 Quit a1titude ("Download Gaim:")

22:58:27BagderXavierGr: yes there is

22:58:58Bagderwe loop the discussion now

23:45:22 Join Mouser_X [0] (
23:45:55sgarrityLlorean: it's a used device, so I can't be certain - but I don't think so
23:46:40n1ssgarrity: you could try to build ipodpatcher from svn, a fix for this was comitted today
23:46:49LloreanUnless they've uploaded the newest version of ipodpatcher, the current version looks for some magic information as part of determining if a device is an ipod
23:47:00LloreanAttempts at manually repartitioning it can destroy that information.
23:47:25sgarrityso trying the latest version from SVN is worth a shot?
23:47:29n1ssgarrity: also, your nano isn't second generation, is it?
23:47:37sgarrityn1s: I think so, yeah
23:48:25n1swell, rockbox does not support second gen nanos...

23:48:46sgarrityit's a second gen Mini
23:49:03sgarrityoh, I see...
23:49:11LloreanMini and Nano are two different things.
23:49:13sgarritySorry for wasting your time - thanks for the help.
23:49:13n1sah, but second gen min will work
23:49:13Bagder2g mini should work fine
23:49:52sgarrityok, so I'm good.
23:50:15n1s how to identify your ipod
23:51:10sgarrityyeah, it's the iPod mini (4 GB Second Generation) - which seems to be supported
23:51:23n1syep, that is supported

23:56:41linuxstbLlorean: Apart from users getting just an Apple logo (and no errors) which I've fixed, do you know of any other ipod bootloader problems? When amiconn commits his 80GB patch to SVN, I'll take the opportunity to release a new set.

23:58:36amiconnWow, the apple fw takes ages to boot
23:58:38Lloreanlinuxstb: It doesn't reboot to apple when Rockbox.ipod isn't present.
23:58:47LloreanI'm not sure if it's supposed to any more.

23:58:53*amiconn first thought it hung
23:58:57linuxstbLlorean: Yes, so users know rockbox.ipod isn't present...
