00:10:21wookey__Sansa 280e arrived yesterday. ROckboxed it forthwith and it 'just works' - well done all!
00:10:41wookey__even plays movies
00:10:54wookey__I need to fiddle a bit more to find out how it all works
00:11:03wookey__then I can ehlp hack
00:11:16Bagderwe like that!
00:11:36amiconnlinuxstb: The very first call to get_next_data() (wrongly) detects end of stream on amd64...
00:11:49wookey__Any news on USB support for sansa? That is a very obvious missing piece that my wife is going to notice :-)
00:12:09Bagderwookey__: it's in the works at least
00:12:35wookey__yeah - austriancoder was doing google SoC on it I hear
00:13:25wookey__BTW is the default rockbox theme supposed to look like tiny monospace font with no colours/icons except yellow background?
00:13:37wookey__or did I do something wrong.
00:13:49Bagderit is that basic
00:14:21 Part rrae
00:14:23Bagderdiscussions tend to pop up every now and then on changing/improving that...
00:14:38wookey__OK. Even I was a bit disapointed on the bling front - and I'm a proper geek :-)
00:14:51wookey__It's a fairly hard-core initial imporession
00:15:14wookey__I can imagine people being put off before realising they can upload themes to their hearts content

00:15:47JdGordonthey are usually the trouble makers, so no loss
00:16:01wookey__perhaps that is true - it is a useful idiot-filter
00:17:01wookey__I just imigine if I told someone 'get rockbox it's great' they might be a bit disapointed with the defaults
00:17:49webguest46I have my datacd creator up but now i just need to know what to put in it. Is there an iso i have to download?
00:18:02 Quit floam ()
00:18:06wookey__default look - default settings seem fine, although backlight duration is very short if you don't already know how to drive device
00:18:08amiconnlinuxstb: If you take a look at the C versions of the CMP_3_CONST and CMP_4_CONST macros, what does that tell you?
00:18:26wookey__Anyway - thanx all - I'll be back - need to do some work now.
00:18:52webguest46This is complicated

00:25:52webguest46forget it, this is too much for me. I don't know enough about linux to try tand make this work. For now, I'm just going to have to wait for the auto-installer.
00:25:53k-manis there a way to store music on rockbox so that rockbox and ipod software can use it?
00:27:02scorchewebguest46: what do you need to "try an make this work" for?...the instructions are very explicit and should open room for interpretation
00:27:11scorchek-man: using i-tunes
00:27:55k-manscorche, ok.... so if i load up the ipod with itunes, rockbox can read the files and use them?
00:28:07scorcheif you use database
00:28:50webguest46Well, i'm just confused about what files i put into this cd creator and then what to do after that so i can get rockbox on my e200r.
00:29:08k-manscorche, ok
00:29:20chrisjs169webguest46, try ISO Recorder - on some computers it doesn't work well, but on others it's fine
00:29:35webguest46sorry if i sound annoying, i'm not trying to
00:30:12webguest46What iso do i have to use. Is there an iso i need?
00:30:21chrisjs169webguest46, download a copy of linux
00:30:29chrisjs169webguest46, that program is only for burning the iso to a cd

00:39:14amiconnA shift + and 'and' are clearer, and not as data size dependent
00:39:43amiconn(and in this case, the operations are compile-time, so it's not influencing performance at all)
00:40:30linuxstbamiconn: I agree - I always use shift and &
00:41:16amiconnIt seems that it works on 32 bit just by coincidence - iirc the preprocessor calculates everything in 64 bit

01:14:33advcomp2019i was going to tell him to use utorrent if he goes the torrent way
01:21:38eigmaI'm getting a compile error in firmware/pcm_playback.c:277. looking at, there looks like there's a trailing "." on line 277.. even with that removed, I get a "samples not declared" because my processor isn't PNX0101..
01:22:24linuxstbeigma: Which target are you building for?
01:23:16eigmanew port, olympus m:robe 500i
01:23:27eigmawe haven't modified that file at all
01:23:48linuxstbYes, that . looks like a typo. That part of the code must be unused for all current targets...
01:24:28eigmaand what about "samples"?
01:24:38eigmais that block supposed to be executed only for the PNX0101?
01:24:43eigma*that _entire_ block
01:25:37n1slinuxstb: yeps, it's swcodec only and inside #if !defined(CPU_PP) as well as #if !defined(CPU_COLDFIRE) && (CONFIG_CPU != S3C2440)
01:25:59n1swhich neatly covers all targets :-)
01:26:01linuxstbeigma: What CPU do you have?
01:27:50linuxstbI think you'll need to create a pcm-something file in the target-tree (firmware/target), and change pcm_playback.c so it ignores that code for your CPU.

01:29:24linuxstbThe problem is that the PNX0101 port is a one-man job, and that man isn't around very much...
01:30:01linuxstbBut yes, it does need fixing.
01:30:10webguest46sorry, got disconnected

01:40:42eigmalinuxstb: okay, so why isn't that code in target/arm/pnx0101?

01:41:06linuxstbtarget-tree is still a work-in-progress.
01:41:08eigmahm :(
01:41:28eigmadoes anyone have a PNX0101 to test a patch if I write one?
01:42:46linuxstbThat's the problem - only one person does. I don't even know if the iFP port builds without error at the moment. But if you write a patch, I'm sure someone will commit it - if we break the port, the porter can fix it.
01:44:01eigmaI'll definitely make sure it doesn't break the build.. but I definitely have no way of checking it on real hardware

02:39:15advcomp2019how long
02:39:24{NV}AimLXJAobve 6 hours
02:39:58LloreanThis isn't really a place for questions about the original firmware, though.
02:40:17{NV}AimLXJI know but after I installed RockBox the recharging takes so long.
02:40:50LloreanTry uninstalling Rockbox and seeing if the charging still takes long, them.
02:41:04{NV}AimLXJBut I wanna keep my RockBox :O
02:41:31LloreanYes but you should verify whether it's Rockbox causing the problem...
02:42:13linuxstbeigma: So how do you run code? Some kind of exploit in the original firmware?
02:42:52{NV}AimLXJDoes the bootloader have to do with anything?

03:29:10saratogalinuxstb: I can't remember, did I already ask you about APEV2 tags?
03:30:12linuxstb(not that I can remember at least...)
03:30:57saratogaok then :)
03:31:12saratogawhat was the reason the APEV2 for MP3 patch wasn't accepted ?
03:31:40saratogaI haven't found a good explination
03:33:01linuxstbIIUC, 1) There are philosphical objections - APE tags don't belong on MP3 files. 2) Plus technical - it shouldn't be necessary to perform extra seeks and disks reads to check for APE tags, but the fact that the id3 code is still in firmware/ and the ape code is in apps/ means they can't be unified easily.
03:33:51saratogalinuxstb: looking at it now, I don't believe it will cause an extra seek, since the patch seems to only look for APEv2 tags after a looking for ID3v1
03:34:14saratogasince the APEV2 tag comes before the ID3v1 tag, it would already be in buffer
03:34:40linuxstbI thought apev2 tags are at the end of the file?
03:34:51saratogayes, immediately before the ID3v1 tag
03:35:01linuxstbNo, afterwards...
03:35:11saratogano before
03:35:18saratogaID3v1 is always the last 128 bytes of the file
03:36:45LloreanDo we always check for ID3v1, or only if v2 isn't found or "v1 before v2" is set for the priority?
03:37:17saratogai think the current patch (if I understand it correctly) only searches for an APEv2 tag if ID3v2 fails
03:38:04saratogaso searching for an APEv2 tag should never happen seperately from an ID3v1 tag
03:38:11linuxstbIt's been a long time since I looked at it, but doesn't the patch read the end of the file twice - once in id3.c and once in metadata.c ?
03:38:43saratogalinuxstb: do you mean metadata.c?
03:39:51linuxstbYes... (as the code was before it was split).
03:41:01saratogalinuxstb: I couldn't remember if they were the same
03:41:08saratogabut no, it only reads the file in ape.c
03:41:23 Join My_Sic [0] (
03:41:25saratogaalthough, all mp3 files without an ID3v2 tag would be searched for an APEv2 tag
03:41:45saratogai suppose thats obvious though
03:42:32saratogaanyway the patch seems quite harmless to non-ape users
03:42:51linuxstbSo there won't be any extra disk reads for non-ape users?
03:42:52saratogait jsut does single read from a part of the file that must be in buffer, and branches back if nothing is found
03:43:40linuxstbget_metadata() does direct disk reads - not reads from the buffer.

03:46:18linuxstbNo. Plus the same functions are used when building the database...
03:47:51saratogalinuxstb: ok that makes a lot of sense
03:48:10saratogafor some reason I thought tags were read directly from the audio buffer
03:48:37linuxstbNo, and even if they were, tracks longer than the buffer wouldn't have the tags in RAM...
03:48:59 Quit Pyromancer (Remote closed the connection)
03:49:13linuxstbget_metadata() is called independently to the file buffering - before the track is loaded, and in advance for the next track.
03:49:23 Quit gromit` (Remote closed the connection)
03:50:24saratogaits not worth trying to run that seek out of the buffer if possible?
03:50:58linuxstbI'm not sure what you mean.
03:51:27saratogasorry, I mean since we load tracks into the audio buffer anyway, why not read the metadata then
03:51:39saratogain order to save that extra seek
03:52:03 Quit actionshrimp ("( :: NoNameScript 4.01 :: )")
03:52:09saratogaor i suppose in the case of mp3, several seeks as you go through the tag flavors it supports
03:52:23linuxstbBecause it's too late - you need the metadata before the end of the file is buffered.
03:52:31linuxstb(to display in the WPS).
03:52:59saratogathat makes sense
03:53:21eigmalinuxstb: I'm having trouble reproducing this clean build: ping me when you have a sec?
03:53:27saratogaso a proper apev2 patch must somehow do the check for the apev2 tag and the check for id3v1 at the same time?
03:54:16linuxstbsaratoga: I believe so. But id3v1 tags are only checked for when there is no id3v2 tag...
03:54:43eigmalinuxstb: shoot, nevermind
03:54:57linuxstbeigma: OK.
03:56:24LloreanApeV2 tags would need another priority setting then.
04:00:10 Quit qweru ("moo")
04:01:52saratogalinuxstb: I was thinking of simplying ignoring APEv2 tags if theres an ID3v2 tag present
04:02:19saratogain that case its almost certainly just a left over tag from mp3gain
04:02:21 Join Pyromancer [0] (
04:02:51saratogasince virtually all real apev2 tag writers are id3v2 aware and strip the tags anyway
04:04:12eigmawhere can I find a list of the platform IDs for the columns on
04:04:51saratogaanyway, i have to get some sleep
04:05:01saratogai will look into this further another day
04:05:04saratogathanks for the info
04:06:49eigmaokay, actually, what I want to do is run a local build server just for myself to make sure that my changes don't break anything
04:07:14SoapI know APE isn't "supposed" to be on MP3, but one of the popular programs (Foobar) used to default to ID3v1 and APE instead of ID3v1 and ID3v2.
04:07:47SoapAnd yes, I know that just because someone else did it wrong doesn't mean Rockbox should do it wrong as well.
04:07:50LloreanUsed to, though.
04:07:52saratogaand mp3gain still does unfortunately
04:08:37saratogawhich is annoying, since the two apps that support replaygain on windows both support APEV2
04:08:46 Quit saratoga ("CGI:IRC")
04:08:53SoapFoobar 0.8.3 even went so far as to default to removing ID3v2 and replacing them with APE whenever a file operation was performed.
04:09:32SoapFoobar 0.8.3 even would write ID3v2 replaygain tags, you just had to turn off the APE default.
04:09:36LloreanIsn't ID3v1 vs v2 the only case where we have multiple tagging formats support?
04:09:46*Llorean use 0.8.3 w/ ID3v2 replaygain. :)

08:50:26GodEaterhermonski: in brief, it's entirely new hardware, so although cosmetically similar to previous ipods on the outside, it's NOTHING like them on the inside. This hardware is completely undocumented. We're also working on the assumption that Apple have encrypted their own firmware on it too, as they did with the 2nd Gen Nano, which makes reverse engineering nigh on impossible.

10:00:59pondlifeHas there been much discussion about the home page? If so, which date? Don't want to rehash stuff...
10:01:27scorchepondlife: it has mostly been met with a "talk to zagor"
10:02:02*pondlife will talk to Zagor then
10:02:18pondlifeZagor: Any chance of reverting to the old home page ;)
10:02:45JdGordonanyone know which mailing list zagor watches? prob not a good idea if everyone talks to him speratly..
10:03:07*GodEater prefers the new page
10:03:15scorcheJdGordon and i were thinking possibly the committers list, but we dont knwo if he watches it...
10:03:25scorcheGodEater: oh, i do just needs a few adjustments
10:03:32pondlifeI like it all being on there, but would prefer the old subversion table (with comments)
10:03:41scorchemostly in the SVN table
10:03:46pondlifeAnd prefer the tables to be below each other, not side-by-side.
10:04:01GodEatermakes the page too long
10:04:08morrijrcould they not be 'floated'?
10:04:17GodEaterI prefer it like this, and a link to each for more detail
10:04:20JdGordonand the recent.html page should have bookmarks things so the links on the frontpage dont all link to the top of hte page
10:04:22pondlifeHmm, don't know what resolution you use, but I have to scroll both ways now
10:04:54scorchemake the SVN table as it was before, and i am largely fine
10:04:57morrijrpondlife: if they were floated then they'd stack if you've not got room
10:05:31pondlifeTry it at 800x600...
10:05:34morrijrexcept for the fact that it's a very heavy table layout :(
10:05:42scorchepondlife: eek...really?
10:05:46GodEaterpondlife: I wouldn't dream of it
10:05:50GodEaterthat's a daft res to run
10:05:52morrijrwith nested tables :(
10:06:01pondlifeOh, yes. I'm seriously not good in the eyesight dept.
10:06:04GodEatermorrijr: no-one uses nested tables any more :)
10:06:08aliaskAnd at 1280 there's a big gap on the side
10:06:14GodEaterpondlife: get a bigger monitor!
10:06:17morrijrGodEater: take a look at the code...
10:06:25GodEatermorrijr: hence the ":)"
10:06:52GodEatermorrijr: it *should* be done with <div> tags
10:06:54pondlifeI'll try 1280x1024 - my monitors are capable of it.
10:07:11morrijrGodEater: agreed. I thought it was when I first saw it

10:07:59JdGordonim just waiting for the usual "submit a patch" reply
10:08:06pixelmafunny that a lot people now discuss the other way round... when talking to Zagor Friday night, a lot agreed that the new page doesn't look good on larger resolutions...
10:08:09k-man_i want to get rockbox to read the ipod files/database
10:08:12k-man_how do i enable that?
10:08:30aliaskSomeone needs to make an AJAX web 2.0 streaming live update frontpage :)
10:08:32GodEaterk-man_: it won't read the ipod database
10:08:40pondlifeHmm, at 1280x1024 it looks better laid out. Pity the font sizes are fixed (or don't follow whatever IE does when you specify "Largest" font).
10:08:43GodEaterk-man_: but you can get it to read the ipod files - just look in the manual
10:08:47scorchepixelma: it has a bit of empty space in 1600x1200
10:08:48JdGordonpixelma: at 1680x1050 it looks pretty bad
10:09:02scorchebut as long as teh SVN table is back tot he way it was, i am happy
10:09:15pixelmain my eyes it already looks bad at 1280x1024...
10:09:25k-man_GodEater: oh, ok
10:09:48pixelmaand I've been told "just don't browse full-screen"...
10:10:00pondlifeIf the tables were below each other, and just used the entire width, that would be KISS too. Sponsors could go back on the right too... (almost back the old layout though!)
10:10:37k-man_GodEater: ok, ill check that
10:10:41JdGordonalso, shouldnt the recent posts from the forum go on the frontpage also?
10:10:49GodEatertoo much information all on the front page is not KISS
10:11:00pixelmapondlife: read Friday evening's (early Saturday's) log
10:11:06pondlifeWill do
10:11:30k-man_GodEater: what section should i look in for info on that?

10:12:51k-man_so i loaded a whole bunch of songs onto the ipod using itunes, should i just run the update now so that rockbox finds them?
10:12:52pondlifeGodEater: I wouldn't object to removing the tables from the front page completely - just have the top 5 MajorChanges/news items maybe? Sooper-simple.
10:13:05GodEaterpondlife: that would be nicer I think
10:13:31GodEaterfor everyone that wants to see all those tables, having the page they're on as a favourite wouldn't be too onerous I don't think
10:13:41GodEaterbut I don't think it's great to have them all on the front page
10:13:42pondlifeThen have a recent changes page like the current home page, but with the data laid out like before (i.e. SVN comments)
10:13:49GodEaterbut last time I ventured that opinion Llorean shouted at me :)
10:14:06pondlifeCurrently it's neither simpler nor more useful (to me)
10:14:14pondlifeBut I'll read the logs and re-understand.
10:14:47pixelmafor people who prefer the last version of the "old look" ;:P
10:14:48pondlifeI don't (yet) use a screen reader, but wonder how well JAWS would cope with the current layout.
10:14:54LloreanGodEater: Which opinion?
10:15:05GodEaterLlorean: that we should have a more user friendly front page :)
10:15:09pondlifepixelma: Thanks!
10:15:13GodEaterless developer focused
10:15:14LloreanI'm all for more user friendly
10:15:34GodEaterI wish I'd kept the logs - but you most definitely didn't have that opinion last time the subject came up
10:15:39pondlifeTwo front pages, one for users ( and one for devs?
10:15:42LloreanI ust don't think that less developer focused is a necessary corollary to it.
10:16:07JdGordonpondlife: the dev frontpage just needs the svn changlog on the build table page
10:17:02*GodEater thinks the now empty top right corner should feature a nice screenshot of Rockbox in action
10:17:13pondlifeI don't think the mailing list needs to be on any front page really; it's already very accessible via mail/news/RSS.
10:17:29pondlifePlus the web (or course)
10:17:51LloreanI think the SVN commits are 100% useless without comments, as developers will want to know why those files changed, and users will either make random guesses, or just not care.
10:18:06GodEaterI think the latter for users
10:18:20GodEaterI'd like to see the forums have an RSS feed to
10:18:20LloreanGodEater: Depends on the user
10:18:28GodEater95% of users then
10:18:37JdGordoneven users would find the commit message more useful than just the file changed
10:18:38LloreanWe've got enough people who speak up any time ipodpatcher.c changes, or whatever.
10:19:07GodEaterare we still estimating about 30,000 users ?
10:19:20LloreanNo clue
10:19:24pondlifeUsers would find the comments useful, but not the filenames, I'd think.
10:19:27*GodEater seems to recall this figure mentioned recently
10:19:36gammyI think I count as two or three .
10:19:43GodEaterpondlife: you think "Oops" is useful ? :)
10:19:44gammyConsidering how much I like it ^_^
10:19:58pondlifeGodEater: Yes! It means don't download!
10:20:16GodEaterpondlife: no it doesn't - it means don't download the commit from before the oops surely ?
10:20:17scorcheGodEater: that was a random number i pulled out of...well...somewhere, but it is my guess (likely way off)
10:20:29pondlifeThat's what I mean
10:20:37GodEaterI think it's a reasonable guess
10:20:57JdGordonGodEater: we dont really have all that many oops commits....
10:21:14GodEaterLlorean: neat - it was already there and I didn't know ?
10:21:26LloreanYeah, I didn't know until 2 minutes ago
10:21:49LloreanYou can customize the URL a bit to add various constraints or whatnot
10:22:13JdGordon$ svn log | grep oops | wc -l
10:22:29*GodEater adds it to google reader
10:22:38GodEaterJdGordon: "grep -i" please
10:23:06GodEaterthat's better :)
10:23:08JdGordon-i is case insensitive i guess?
10:23:23GodEaterand now your typos please "Ops" and "Ooops" ?
10:23:31LloreanI think the front page could settle for four things: A paragraph describing what Rockbox is/does (shortened Why Rockbox) including a link to the players it runs on, MajorChanges, News, and Sponsors.
10:23:39peturand add to that 'fix red', 'fix yellow', ...
10:23:54LloreanAt the very bottom of the front page could also be the actual SVN commits, out of sight of any "user" who doesn't scroll down
10:24:01GodEaterpetur: lets have that as a proper regexp then
10:24:07 Join obo [0] (n=obo@rockbox/developer/obo)
10:24:16GodEaterI still think we should include a screenshot too
10:24:33GodEaterpossibly a randomly selected one from "themes" that changes whenever someone visits :)
10:24:43pondlifeI agree. But maybe after we've updated the default theme :)
10:24:49peturlet's make an animated gif from some themes....
10:24:52LloreanGodEater: Above the sponsors, top right corner?
10:25:02pondlifepetur: No animation, please.
10:25:19GodEaterpondlife: no no - not after we've updated the default theme. That means "Never" :)
10:25:23*JdGordon fails @ regexp
10:25:26pondlifeHence my :)
10:25:48pondlifeSeriously, some dictator should just update the default theme.
10:26:02JdGordonGodEater: thats what I was tihnking, a random screeny would be cool
10:26:05GodEateryeah - it's clear democracy is not needed there
10:26:13GodEaterit just fails completely
10:26:14pondlifeI have no strong opinion other than the current one is unimpressive.
10:26:25GodEaterunimpressive is a kind thing to say about it :)
10:26:37*JdGordon likes the cabbie theme
10:26:51GodEater"massively underwhelming" would be my choice
10:26:58JdGordonif we want the default to look about the same on most targets
10:27:05*GodEater wonders if *anyone* keeps the default except blind people
10:27:57aliaskI think the default theme should at LEAST have the peakmeters removed on swcodecs
10:28:04*pondlife updates his sim with jhMikeS and amiconn's good work
10:28:08*petur wonders why icatcher never made it to default - it exists for most targets
10:28:16JdGordonaliask: why? they arnt a problem on all targets
10:28:17Lloreanaliask: Why, they work on 6 of the swcodec targets, at least
10:28:18GodEateryeah, iCatcher is a good enough default
10:28:25*pondlife agrees
10:28:32GodEaterLlorean: but they suck :)
10:28:39aliaskBecause I get CPU issues on my ipod mini on high bitrate files
10:28:51JdGordonbtw, are we talking about a new hard coded default? or just a default for the config file?
10:28:57Lloreanaliask: And the iPod (or portalplayer in general) suffers from "performance problems"
10:28:58pondlifePeople who want peak meters can easily select a new theme.
10:29:18GodEaterthey don't seem a popular choice for inclusion by most theme authors
10:29:19peturJdGordon: default for config file
10:29:32JdGordonok then, goodd :)
10:29:36LloreanGodEater: I honestly think that's because they're not themable, and the majority of themes are made for iPods.
10:29:50peturGodEater: because they are ugly?
10:29:54LloreanGodEater: I've seen several requests for them to be vertical, or other things like that.

10:30:06JdGordonthe default should maybe look as close to the OF as possible.. so we can convert people and they wont realise :p
10:30:13GodEaterall those are good reasons to remove them from the default IMHO
10:30:18aliaskJdGordon: I disagree
10:30:28GodEaterI disagree with that too
10:30:43aliaskOr are you trying to go for the "install it on peoples mp3 players while they aren't looking" approach?
10:30:50LloreanI think that whatever theme is chosen as the default, peakmeters shouldn't really factor in beyond "how do they look as part of it"
10:30:54pondlifeThe RB virus?
10:30:58amiconnGodEater: I keep the default on most of my targets because (1) I'm too lazy to make my own wps and (2) imo none of the shipped or posted wps'es are better than the default
10:31:09pondlifeHmm, iCatcher seems set up for Album Art, no?
10:31:15amiconnI just select a somewhat larger (and proportional) font
10:31:17GodEaterI think I owe pondlife a fiver
10:31:34GodEaternot that I was really betting against him
10:31:59pondlifeI'll arm wrestle you for that fiver
10:32:15GodEatergloves off this time, I'm not giving you a head start
10:32:16amiconnAnd I like wps'es that include peakmeters
10:32:42pondlifeOK, just dislocated this time.
10:32:44pondlifeNot so bad.
10:32:49GodEaternice, I'll put that back in for you
10:32:53*pondlife clicks it back in.
10:33:17amiconnAt least the default has all info I want, and doesn't take ages to load
10:33:21 Quit Hadaka (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
10:33:38GodEaterdefine ages ?
10:33:48pondlifeamiconn: You'd be free to have that still. But it's the reaction of new users that concerns me.
10:34:17pondlifeI've failed to convert 2 friends now, it's quite unfortunate (for them, mainly)
10:34:38pondlifeOne primarily on the UI, one on the iPod battery life, really.
10:34:45amiconnOn 2nd gen I use iCatcher because peakmeters aren't so good on PP5002. But iCatcher is annoying in several respects: (1) excessive load time (2) the graphical format indicators mess up (3) no disk indicator
10:34:46*GodEater wonders if that's more to do with pondlife spouting on about all the bugs in playback.c
10:34:58pondlifeHah, no. I keep quiet about them
10:35:10 Quit skate3214 ("ChatZilla [Firefox]")
10:35:10GodEaternearly un-converted me when you did
10:35:19JdGordonhang on... if we ship with default themes... do we want all targets to look the same-ish?
10:35:23pondlifeYou're a dev, you should be able to take it.
10:35:30pondlifeJdGordon: Yes
10:35:33GodEaterwell given I hadn't even noticed them - yes :)
10:35:35pondlifeBut with sensible font sizes
10:35:39LloreanJdGordon: there's two kinds of "same". Same image, but scaled, or same style.
10:35:42JdGordonthat limits our options a fair bit then
10:35:43LloreanI'd lean toward same style
10:36:14pondlifeThe Player will probably be excluded from any change...
10:36:21JdGordonamiconn: for a default I dont think load time is a big deal.. more users are put off by the look than the load time
10:36:22GodEaterthe competition we had in the forums pretty much failed
10:36:30LloreanSame general presentation of information, but for example, on particularly short screens maybe no "Next Song" information, on very tall ones (Portrait) some additional lines that would be "fluff"
10:36:32JdGordonespecially coming from OF's where it takes a full minute to be usable
10:36:41 Quit t0mas ("*runs off to work*")
10:36:46LloreanGodEater: It provided the beginnings of one. =/
10:36:52GodEaterLlorean: yes - one
10:37:02LloreanI think load time should still be an important point.
10:37:10GodEaterand I don't think it was nearly as good as iCatcher or Rockboxed
10:37:24GodEatermy only issue with Rockboxed was it was too orange
10:37:27GodEaterotherwise it was a good theme
10:37:51GodEaterif he'd inverted the palette it would have been better
10:37:52LloreanHonestly, probably the best thing we can do is take the current default, strip the peakmeters, and frame it in a nice looking backdrop.
10:37:55pondlifeHow come iCatcher and Rockboxed aren't on
10:38:08Lloreanpondlife: iCatcher is always included...
10:38:29GodEaterisn't Rockboxed too these days ?
10:38:35LloreanBut honestly, one really good looking backdrop can make a huge difference going from "But it's just text on a screen" to "Hey, that looks rather nice"
10:38:36JdGordonLlorean: and larger fonts and nice icons
10:38:41LloreanJdGordon: Yes.
10:38:53LloreanColored icons for color targets, larger fonts for most screens, and a backdrop for the main WPS
10:39:03LloreanI can't imagine a backdrop making too huge a difference in load time, since it's a single file.
10:39:19GodEaterso anyway - this discussion just proves my point, and we should stick to randomly selected theme images on the front page :)
10:39:33LloreanOh, and on color or grayscale targets, a progress bar image.
10:39:43pondlifeOr, it proves my point that we need a dictator!
10:39:51GodEaterthough it should probably be from an "elite" subset of all themes
10:39:57*Llorean votes himself dictator.
10:39:57JdGordonVIVA LA DICTATOR!
10:39:58GodEatersince some of them suck
10:40:13LloreanGodEater: Yeah, whatever's rotated on the front page should be hand selected, not random
10:40:26pondlifeThe Soap-seal of approval should be mandated at least.
10:40:51GodEateryeah - they should install from RBUtil cleanly
10:41:21*pondlife would like to see the non-compliant themes removed from the wiki anyway, plus the sucky mono-on-colour-target ones
10:41:44Lloreanpondlife: Um, why should mono-on-color-target be removed, just because you don't think they're pretty?
10:41:51GodEaterthere's no accounting for taste pondlife
10:42:06*JdGordon votes the orange/yellow version of
10:42:07pondlifeTrue, but they are the sort of thing that gives Rockbox a bad name, IMHO
10:42:10scorchepondlife: all themes will eventually be abolished
10:42:14LloreanRockboxed, a rather popular theme herabouts, is essentially mono-on-color.
10:42:31pondlifeYes, but at least it has a colour setting.
10:42:42pondlifeMad Big Sausage, anyone?
10:43:02LloreanHow does an optional theme give Rockbox a bad name, unless someone goes around saying "This is what Rockbox looks like"?
10:43:10GodEateryeah - lets leave them be
10:43:16pondlifeIt does if it's on the front page
10:43:16GodEaterbut just not "advertise" them on the front page
10:43:22pondlifeThat's what I mean
10:43:30LloreanAnyway, anyone up to volunteering to create some nice looking backdrops for the default theme sans peakmeters, at differing font sizes by screen size? :-P
10:43:36GodEaterpondlife: well we already said we'd hand pick whatever gets displayed there
10:43:54scorchewhy are we thinking if displaying themes there?
10:44:09Lloreanscorche: There's a big empty space in the top right corner, and people always ask "What does it look like?"
10:44:11JdGordon is the one im tihnkign of
10:44:14amiconnJdGordon: I'm way more impressed by zippy operation than by looks. I have nothing against good looks, but performance and usability always come first
10:44:29*aliask votes for Rocker (e200 theme)
10:44:38scorcheLlorean: then we forward them to dont know about showing a theme on the front page...
10:44:40Lloreanamiconn: How do you feel about default+backdrop then? Think it's slow things down too much?
10:44:43JdGordonamiconn: I agree, but users wont care if it takes an extra second to boot if it looks better by default hen the current
10:44:50Lloreanscorche: Why not, as long as it's an official-build theme?
10:44:55aliaskBut it has no license, and only one target
10:45:07scorcheLlorean: i just am not sure if that belongs on the front page
10:45:07*JdGordon slaps aliask, thats a horrible theme :p
10:45:28GodEaterprobably stating the obvious - but NO album art ones either!
10:45:30aliaskAre we thinking of the same one?
10:45:35Lloreanscorche: I think "What does it run on?" "What does it do?" are both important things for the front page, and "What does it do?" includes "What does it look like?"
10:45:44JdGordonaliask: just different tastes...
10:46:17GodEaterI can't even see Rocker on rockbox-themes
10:46:27GodEaterLlorean: absolutely
10:46:48scorcheLlorean: yes, but i dont know if just a random picture of a theme will work for that...
10:46:59LloreanGodEater: But I think "What does it run on" can be linked to from the shortened "What does it do" paragraph
10:47:06GodEaterscorche: we get to pick which "random" ones will show though
10:47:18Lloreanscorche: We were talking about a rotating picture of say our favorite half dozen to dozen themes that work with an official build
10:47:20*pondlife guiltily likes the phkTAPE theme... clever, if not that practical.
10:47:31scorcheLlorean: and what device?
10:47:33*Llorean rather likes the one that looks like it was written in pencil
10:47:42GodEaterscorche: I think we should pick a selection
10:47:49GodEaternot just confine to one device
10:47:51Lloreanscorche: My preference is for iPod Video, since 320x240 offers good visibility
10:48:06LloreanGodEater: We probably should, otherwise the box will be varying sizes
10:48:13LloreanUnless we pad smaller images, and skip the Gigabeat
10:48:22GodEaterLlorean: I think padding won't be too tricky
10:48:30GodEaterand why skip the gigabeat ?
10:48:35scorcheLlorean: but then we leave out other great themes and are saying "if you want your theme to possibly have a chance of being on the front page, make it for the ipod video"
10:48:59LloreanGodEater: Unless you use a 320x320 box
10:49:19JdGordoneither the video or the gigabeat.. depends which one fits better in the space
10:49:29LloreanMore than half the height of poor Pondlife's screen...
10:49:29GodEaterLlorean: since we're only offering a sample - I don't think we need to avoid scaling the images either - although I may change my mind
10:49:49GodEaterpondlife needs to buy a bigger monitor
10:49:51Lloreanscorche: Honestly, they're going to make their themes for their player first anyway.
10:50:02Lloreanscorche: And the Video has the widest selection
10:50:03pondlifeGodEater: My monitors are pretty big already, sadly
10:50:19GodEaterpondlife: 28" already ? :)
10:50:26pondlifeHah, no
10:50:38pondlifeBut my desk isn't big enough for those, nor my room!
10:50:50scorchea "Here is what Rockbox can look like:" link would satisfy that fine, but i am still wary of this way
10:51:07Lloreanscorche: Anything we want to be sure users sees needs to not be hidden behind a link, and hopefully be flashy
10:51:23GodEaterscorche: what's your problem with it ?
10:51:28LloreanA rotating image would do it. We could include all bitmap players except the Gigabeat, I suppose.
10:51:36aliaskOn the topic of themes and soforth, does a standard install come with any icon themes?
10:51:37pondlifeNothing animated, please.
10:51:52pondlifeJust a random one, each refresh?
10:51:55GodEaterpondlife: rotating as in "it appears different when you hit refresh"
10:51:59pondlifeAh, ok
10:51:59Lloreanpondlife: That's what I had in mind.
10:52:09GodEateranimated would be horrible
10:52:49GodEateris it worth putting out a call for people to submit designs of the front page at Rockbox in the forums ? With the caveat that we reserve the right to reject all of them if we don't like them ?
10:53:07pondlifeNo, this needs a dictator.
10:53:30GodEaterpondlife: the decision could still be taken by a dictator
10:53:37GodEaterbut we might end up with something we really like
10:53:40scorcheGodEater: people perhaps not realizing it is a random image, favoritizing one player, the general idea
10:53:41GodEaterand we won't know unless we ask
10:53:42pondlifeIt would end up like the theme competition... unfinished.
10:53:54GodEaterpondlife: maybe - but there's no harm in trying right ?
10:54:03pondlifeOK, go for it
10:54:05GodEaterand we can still change what we have currently in the meantime
10:54:09***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
10:54:14LloreanGodEater: I'd wait on that
10:54:15GodEaterwe need to set rules for how it's done too
10:54:23LloreanRight now there's no guarantee the front page will be changed.
10:54:26GodEatersomewhat like the slashdot redesign
10:54:34GodEaterLlorean: still doesn't hurt I don't think
10:54:49GodEaterif we put it "we don't guarantee to select anything" it doesn't matter
10:54:56LloreanIt might become like the logo thing, though
10:55:06GodEaterI don't think it will
10:55:07pondlifeI'd rather see effort put into (a) setting up a set of rules for suitable themes (Soap-SOA would probably do) and (b) collecting all suitable themes together (on, preferably).
10:55:15LloreanPeople keep bringing it up, and kinda frustrating a few key people who don't think it should change, and have the dictatorship to say so
10:55:20GodEaterputting a well designed web page together is a much more serious undertaking
10:55:29scorchepondlife: "suitable"?
10:55:38scorchepondlife: what is this for?
10:55:40GodEaterthe logo design thing is a bit too easy to do
10:55:40Lloreanpondlife: This was decided long ago, and is almost finished being prepared to become an official site with official themes.
10:55:56pondlifeIndeed, but there are some missing themes.
10:56:16GodEaterI'd say we'd like the page done in proper CSS layout style, and must include features X, Y and Z
10:56:18pondlifeSuitable... say, works on all targets with no patches required.
10:56:30scorchepondlife: it will be born anew with tabula rasa
10:56:55GodEaterworking on all targets is a tall order for a lot of themes
10:56:56Lloreanpondlife: Authors will have to resubmit, as we're requiring a stated license now.
10:57:15LloreanBut there's no all-target requirement, just patch-free for the main section
10:57:16pondlifeLicense too..

11:00:15GodEateris the current page generated with perl ?
11:00:51scorchewhich current page?
11:02:11Lloreanscorche: "Do you have you a theme that is not listed on this site?" sounds like people should submit any theme they have, even other peoples'... was that what was intended?

11:06:19JdGordonamiconn: even 5s is no big deal for the first boot imho

11:08:09LloreanGodEater: Before you post that, do you know *why* we're not using CSS for layout, or why the menu on the left is not collapsible?
11:08:12scorcheand from what it is sounding like, it wont be a "best of rockbox themes" would be a "best of ipod video rockbox themes"
11:08:14GodEaterscorche: I don't think having it as Web 2.0 is a bad thing provide the design *includes* the work necessary
11:08:33Lloreanscorche: No, it's solely my suggestion that they be ipv themes.
11:08:36GodEaterLlorean: I assume because it's tough to generate it from the perl that runs currently
11:08:57JdGordonnothing is tough for perl
11:09:12LloreanGodEater: Might want to check for the reasoning first. No sense asking for submissions that will be objected for any technical reason already extant.
11:09:41Lloreanscorche: I don't know why you're so touchy about having any themes displayed on the front page. You seem to be upset that we want them there at all.
11:10:16scorcheLlorean: that is putting it a little strong...i just dont like the idea much
11:10:20GodEaterLlorean: given that I want to ask for submissions to include the underlying code too I'm not so worried about it
11:10:33GodEatersomeone just submitting a photoshop'd front page isn't taking it seriously enough ;)
11:10:49scorcheGodEater: people might be a little angry if they put a lot of work into it and get shot down entirely (even with warnings) =)
11:11:09GodEaterscorche: since when do we care about angry forum users ? ;)
11:11:27scorcheGodEater: jerk!
11:11:28amiconnJdGordon: It's not the first boot, but every boot. And 5 seconds is around the same as the rest of the boot time, so it's quite annoying
11:11:38*GodEater polishes his "Jerk" badge
11:11:47LloreanGodEater: I'd say wait until the swedes are around, and find out why certain things are the way they are before posting.
11:12:09amiconnIt will be less annoying when I have suspend working though
11:12:54*amiconn is always annoyed by boot times. Ideally a dap should boot in <1 second
11:13:01linuxstbamiconn: Regarding wps loading time, if you get chance, could you test the bmp-in-tar patch that's on flyspray? It works, but when both Nico_P and I tested it, it didn't give any noticable speedup, so we didn't try and finish it and commit it. But WPSs load fast (a lot faster than you're reporting) for me anyway (disk fragmentation?). It's FS 6571
11:13:11LloreanGodEater: One very, very important thing should be to stress that they should strive to make it accessible.
11:13:34scorchei dont know how accessible collapsible menus are
11:13:40amiconnlinuxstb: It might be fragmentation plus the older generation 1.8" ´hdds being slow at seeking
11:13:51GodEaterLlorean: you mean for unsighted people for example
11:13:51amiconn(my 2nd gen has an MK2003GAH)
11:13:58LloreanGodEater: Exactly.
11:14:01GodEaterscorche: they're only unaccessible if you collapse them
11:14:12JdGordonamiconn: it would only affect the boot time untill its changed.. the idea is to set the default in the config, so you could still go back to the current default
11:14:16GodEaterso the default (should you choose to use them) should not be to have anything hidden
11:14:21LloreanAnd collapsible menus that don't start collapsed are little good. :-P
11:14:30GodEaterI disagree
11:14:35LloreanI don't think there's enough content on that sidebar to make them so, though.
11:14:37GodEaterthe /. redesign used them
11:14:53GodEaterand they start out fully displayed, I simple collapse the ones I don't use very often
11:14:56amiconnJdGordon: I was thinking about a default that's actually usable
11:14:59GodEaterbut as you say, it may not even be necessary
11:15:07GodEaterwe'll leave that to the designer
11:15:19*GodEater is still modifying his draft post with these suggestions btw.

11:17:03*JdGordon wonders why amiconn thought we would choose an unsuable default theme?
11:17:46LloreanJdGordon: 5 seconds every boot is unusable to some of us.
11:17:56amiconnFirst I didn't. Your remark regarding "only the first boot" lead me to
11:18:06LloreanThe default should strive to be as nice looking as possible with as low a boot time hit as possible

11:18:46markunaliask: I also emailed him about it
11:18:55markunand didn't get a reply

11:23:11LinusNthat sucks imho
11:23:17scorcheLinusN: my main issue is the svn table
11:24:04markunaliask: maybe you can post on the forum and make it a general GPLv2 vs GPLv3 question
11:24:05GodEaterLinusN: I don't know that there are problems per se, I just thought it might be nice to see some alternative designs submitted. Someone might come up with something so gobsmackingly good, we really really like it
11:24:35GodEaterThe forums do have a certain population of people who claim to be web developers who've offered their services previously - this gives them something to do
11:24:44GodEaterwithout us committing to using anything

11:24:51aliaskmarkun: I might do just that then.
11:25:08GodEaterLinusN: do you think that's a bad idea ?
11:25:32LinusNthe problem is that "web design" to many equals "cool graphic design", and not necessarily "effectively conveying planty of information"
11:26:01LloreanI think that with the addition of a "recent activity" page, the front page ought to be streamlined but that's it.
11:26:12GodEaterLinusN: this is why I'm trying to layout a set of rules for what MUST be included
11:26:15LloreanAnd as a few have said, the target list can be put on a separate page, preferably with pictures and such
11:26:55LinusNwhat we primarily need is a way to structure the information on the front page in a good way
11:27:03 Join bowl [0] (i=c27f0814@gateway/web/cgi-irc/
11:27:05*Llorean would really like to get rid of every table but "News" and "Major changes" and maybe an SVN log somewhere if it can be made less space-overwhelming.
11:27:08GodEaterLinusN: in the end, if someone submits something which is all sizzle, and not useful - then we just reject it
11:27:39JdGordon_linuxstb: ping?
11:27:43pondlifeIt would save them wasting their time if we can set some groundrules though
11:28:02GodEaterin my opinion a good web designer *knows* that a web page is about information display, and not just about the "ZOMG" factor
11:28:16linuxstbLlorean: I didn't have a problem with the SVN table on the front page - as long as it's at the bottom of the front page. It's the content above the SVN table that's most important.
11:28:29GodEater <−− updated again
11:29:07Lloreanlinuxstb: Yeah, that's about how I feel
11:29:39bowlAny RB web site admins here? Would it be possible to add anchors on the recent.html page? So that it's possible to jump right to the desired place via bookmarks? And one more thing: I think, the Subversion block on the front page should contain not the files changed but rather the comment. Has this already been discussed? If yes, I appologize for bringing this up.

11:33:32 Part bowl
11:33:32linuxstbJdGordon_: That seems promising at least - it's detected it and opened a device handle.... But I'm afraid I don't have time to experiment now.
11:33:32GodEaterlinuxstb: if you have suggestions for my list that I've not included then please let me know
11:33:34LloreanGodEater: I'm thinking something more like this, though a little less ugly, and a little more "sponsors on the right"">
11:33:57LloreanA simplified version of what we had before.
11:34:01JdGordon_linuxstb: no worries, I actually pinged you to get the url of the exe.. but found it already
11:34:02pondlifeMerge the news and major changes into one table?
11:34:20Lloreanpondlife: Seems logical
11:34:31pondlifeBut watch out for duplicates!
11:34:45GodEaterLlorean: you can submit that to the competition when I post it then ;)
11:34:59amiconnJdGordon_: Iiuc you need both the filter driver installed, and the device driver associated with the sansa while it's in manufacturing mode, in ordre3 to make libusb access it
11:35:04pondlifeSponsors back on the right, and add the SVN comments...
11:35:13linuxstbWhat about the recent mail and recent wiki - I'm not sure we need those on the front page as well.
11:35:19Lloreanpondlife: Yes. Sorry, that was the work of about 30 seconds cutting things out.
11:35:19JdGordon_amiconn: we were under the impression you didnt need the filter driver
11:35:45pondlifeLlorean: I think I'm saying we'd be back to the original layout, and I prefer that to all other options so far :)
11:36:07Lloreanpondlife: I'd like to get rid of the player list, and replace it with a more user-friendly paragraph
11:36:09JdGordon_Llorean: that looks a bit better... but the blerb has to be limited to say 800px wide, it looks _terrible_ at high res widescreen
11:36:30GodEaterpondlife fears change it seems
11:36:41pondlifeNot really. I have my reasons here.
11:36:42LloreanJdGordon_: As i said, that was a really quick hack job, it's more the sample text (lack of player list) and which things were kept on the page than the layout.
11:36:45linuxstbamiconn: The documentation claims the filter driver isn't needed any more - just a device driver -
11:36:53*JdGordon_ giong for dinner
11:37:06pondlifeLlorean: I think the target list is useful for people Googling.
11:37:21Lloreanpondlife: So we make sure the other page is indexed by google.
11:37:34pondlifeother page?
11:37:37LloreanI'm not saying we remove the target list, just drop it from the front page.
11:37:50linuxstbHow about a "Quick links" section, similar to the IPL homepage?
11:37:53LloreanI think it's valuable, but I think people skim over it.
11:38:13pixelmaLlorean: that's almost like the last version of the old layout, and maybe I'm late in discussion but I don't think removing the device list from the front page is such a good idea, provided how often we answer here "if your device is not listed on the frontpage as supported, it's not"...
11:38:18LloreanIf you have a paragraph like the one I put there, that links to the targets (and says clearly before the link that it ONLY runs on those) people might not only find them, but understand that it's limited to just them.
11:38:21pondlifeI like the ipodlinux layout, aside from the wikipedia look
11:38:35pondlifeThe icons etc, nice.
11:38:47Lloreanpixelma: Yeah, but what I'd like is a paragraph saying "It only runs on certain devices, and these devices are listed here(Page link)" and then on that page have pictures as well
11:39:31linuxstbI agree with pixelma - the device list is good on the front page. But there could always be a second page, with pictures and more info.
11:39:35LloreanI think that "normal" users expect text, rather than a chart.
11:39:38pondlifeI partucularly like the inclusion of the SVN revision number...
11:40:09LinusNthe issue here is really that so many people don't expect that info to be on the front page
11:40:11LloreanAlso, as the list expands it'll just take up more and more space on the front page.
11:40:26LinusN(the device list)
11:40:31LloreanI think it's just more readable in general to have an introduction paragraph to Rockbox, and then a link to the device list.
11:40:56linuxstbLinusN: I'm not sure I agree with that - where else do people start looking for information if it's not the front page?
11:41:13LinusNthey expect to find a link to the information
11:41:14 Part ddalton
11:41:15Lloreanlinuxstb: People go to the front page to find out *where* information is, rather than the information itself, I think.
11:41:26LloreanSometimes reading past the information in the process.
11:41:46linuxstbThen IMO it's a problem with how we've presented the list, not the fact that the list is there.
11:41:51LinusNfurthermore, it seems that many people don't expect the front page information to be up-to-date and accurate
11:41:58LloreanThere's that too
11:42:06 Join ddalton [0] (
11:42:10 Quit perplexity ("Check out my rear window")
11:42:30pixelmaLlorean: exactly as linuxstb said - the list as a quick overview with a link to a more detailed page (with picures), how many people fail to find the "manual" link for example on the current page...
11:42:38LinusNthe front page is expected to be a portal to the real information, not contain the information itself
11:43:34 Join Thundercloud [0] (
11:43:47LloreanI think the paragraph helps more. It says "There's information here, this is what sort it is, and here's some of the most likely things you're seeking."
11:43:59LloreanI think it'd also make it less likely people will miss the "Why Rockbox" link.
11:44:16LinusNand considering the wealth of other information, i think the list of devices can easily be moved somehere else
11:45:26LinusNalso, i think we should have a different appearance on the dynamic boxes and the static information
11:46:00LinusNright now, the introductory text and the device list looks exactly like the dynamic info boxes
11:46:41LinusNi don't really see the point of having the first text block in a box at all
11:47:18 Quit jwilen ()
11:47:45pondlifeAnything that wastes less space is good by me.
11:48:19GodEatershall I put these points into my draft post ?
11:48:54LinusNyou mean my appearance comment?
11:50:07LinusNi like Llorean's mockup
11:50:51LinusNthen again, the current design is quite boring, but in a good way imho
11:50:53pondlifeMe too... add the SVN rev number too though.
11:50:56LloreanLinusN: As pondlife suggested, I think merging major changes into the news (or perhaps just including more news items for added features) would be good
11:51:04pondlifeTricky though.
11:51:19LloreanThe SVN table needs to be more "Full"
11:51:25pondlifeYou'd probably get WMA mentioned twice, for example.
11:51:26LloreanComments, and revisions would be nice.
11:51:43pondlifeRevision should be the first column IMHO
11:51:43Lloreanpondlife: So just have the news updated more often rather than an automated merge.
11:52:18pondlifeOr could the news just be taken from the MajorChanges page perhaps?
11:52:27GodEaterI think that would be better
11:52:27LloreanThat wouldn't work as well
11:52:30LloreanDevcon and such
11:52:34GodEaterNews is dreadful at the moment in my opinion
11:52:37pondlifeHmm, good point
11:52:50GodEaterbut, as just pointed out
11:52:50LloreanGodEater: News needs a maintainer, I think
11:52:52pondlifeSo a non-code News page to merge.
11:53:03GodEaterwe'd need some way to make manual additions
11:53:09LloreanA .html someone's in charge of updating, that gets included or something
11:53:31*LinusN whispers "cms"
11:53:40*pondlife googles
11:53:43GodEatercontent management system
11:54:00GodEatera la Mambo, or similar
11:54:05pondlifeSo, the current wiki maybe? With permissions...
11:54:35LloreanBut yeah, news definitely needs some attention
11:54:58LloreanI think though that for the SVN revision in the changelog, the revision number could just be part of the date column.
11:54:58GodEaterto be honest
11:55:14GodEaterwe could blame the lack of updates to News for people thinking the front page doesnt update very often
11:55:22GodEaterthey can see that svn is dynamically generated
11:55:29*pondlife treates the SVN as news
11:55:34GodEaterbut if we only update news once every 3 months
11:55:47GodEaterthen you could be forgiven for thinking that the rest of the page isn't touched much
11:55:53pondlifeMajorChanges is updated reasonably
11:56:03GodEaterMajor changes isn't the front page
11:56:08pondlifeNo, but it couldbne
11:56:09pondlifecould be
11:56:22GodEateryes it could
11:56:38pondlifeNews on front page = top 8 entries from (MajorChanges + FrontPageNews)?
11:56:40GodEaterwhat I'm saying is, "This is why users assume the current model list is out of date"

12:01:23LinusNnot very accessible
12:01:26GodEaterI can take that suggestion out completely
12:01:29pondlifeYes, maybe keep the sidebar out of it.
12:01:48pondlifeSo we can keep consistency across sites too.

12:22:52aliaskWould it be possible to link in the eSpeak codec/plugin seperately to avoid license conflicts?
12:22:59aliaskSort of like how linux etc does it?
12:23:57B4gderthat would require a pretty drastic remodeling

12:26:16JdGordon_GodEater: (/me a bit late) I tihnk point 2 is a bit harshe....
12:26:55GodEaterI think it's a bit pointless someone submitting a mockup if they can't make it work
12:27:11JdGordon_so, but some people are creative, and some are coders
12:27:15 Nick JdGordon_ is now known as JdGordon (n=jonno@rockbox/developer/JdGordon)
12:27:21GodEaterso then they get together
12:27:25GodEaterthere's nothing stopping a team entry
12:27:42GodEaterthen Mr. Creative can send his .PSD to the coder chap
12:27:59JdGordonno, but saying they arnt alowd to submit a mockup means a creative person who cant code will probably not bother
12:28:17LinusNi don't mind a mockup as long as it is a HTML/CSS page and not just an image
12:28:30GodEaterthe "just an image" is what I'm trying to avoid
12:28:44GodEaterperhaps I should clarify that point

12:54:27amiconnThis would cut down 'make zip' runtime (drastically on cygwin)
12:56:01rasherWow, is really a sort of perl/shellscript hybrid
12:56:13rasherUsing lots of external apps for stuff that could be handled by perl
12:56:20rasherAs far as I can tell
12:56:43amiconnYup. Calling 'cp' a thousand times, plus other tools
12:58:12rasherAnd find.. which calls cp.. I have a feeling that could be done somewhat nicer
12:58:53GodEaterfix it
12:59:20B4gderperhaps we should fix all cygwin users to run linux? ;-)
12:59:28*B4gder ducks and runs
12:59:33rasherI wonder if it was once named, then someone needed a single function of Perl and hastily converted it while leaving most of the shell script calls intact
13:00:06B4gdernot necesarily, I use to write my perl like that
13:00:16B4gderI don't use cygwin...
13:00:59amiconnThis approach is also slower than using perl functions on linux, just not as much as on cygwin
13:01:12B4gdersure, but on linux we won't notice the speed difference
13:01:29B4gderI never wrote that to be a speedy script, just a working one
13:01:39B4gderand it runs fast enough on linux
13:02:03B4gderI find it sad that we have to rewrite it just because we have and use inferior systems

15:10:37jhMikeSB4gder: we had such a memory leak with voice and buffer_alloc use in the past (I know the bug is a sim bug though)
15:10:38amiconnpondlife: No memory leak here. The sim allocates ~39MB of virtual memory right from the start. RAM usage is around 6MB. Starting playback increases ram usage to all virtual memory. That's it

16:16:35GodEaterbowl: not really no
16:17:05bowlBecause the signature is verified on the DAP?
16:17:10pondlifebowl: Yes. Best bet would be to send a spy into the Apple labs.

16:17:17B4gderneither can firefox, internet explorer or google ;-9
16:17:34B4gderbowl: itunes has nothing to do with the firmware encryption
16:17:55pondlifeFunny how people give iTunes so much credit.
16:18:04bowlB4gder: is iTunes just used to transfer music? Or also for FW updates?
16:18:07ChrononI think a lot of people think that's the name of the Apple firmware.
16:18:11*GodEater still likes it from ripping CDs
16:18:18B4gderbowl: itunes is just a host program
16:18:59bowlI don't use it myself, just thought if we can't find out how the sign is verified we can find out how to create a valid one
16:19:24B4gderbowl: but itunes won't check the sign nor generated it
16:19:38B4gderit most likely just gets a remote file and puts it on the ipod
16:19:54bowlB4gder: ah, that's the point. No chance then :-/

16:20:10amiconnChronon: I'm not sure whether sending the nano to me from the US is a good idea. Not because of shipment costs, but because of possible customs issues
16:20:11B4gderit would surprise me greatly if itunes would have any clues
16:20:25B4gderof this kind, I mean
16:21:14amiconnWould be easier if either someone in the EU has a problematic nano and would be willing to send it, or a dev located in the US would take your offer
16:21:24bowlB4gder: so you mean, FW updates are prepared and signed somewhere at Apple, and iTunes downloads them and puts to the dap?
16:21:34B4gderyes, I would expect so
16:21:48pondlifeamiconn: What if someone in the EU received the nano, then sent it on to you?
16:21:56Chrononamiconn: linuxstb mentioned this. I'm hoping we can find a European donor or an American developer.

18:39:13Rincewindthen i switched back to master
18:39:33RincewindI am sure that the master wasn't changed at all by this
18:39:49GodEater_so "git branch whatever" "git checkout whatever" "patch -p0 < thepatch.diff" and then "git checkout master" ?
18:40:14GodEater_possibly with a "git commit -a" just before the last checkout of master
18:40:38Rincewindgit branch whatever, git checkout whatever, ...working there... git commit -a, git checkout master, try to build
18:41:00GodEater_so if you do "git branch" it shows you're on master yes /
18:41:08RincewindI did a git svn rebase which pulled a one or two new commits
18:41:14Rincewindyes, i am on master
18:41:20GodEater_do a git reset −−hard
18:41:25GodEater_then try the compile again
18:41:57Rincewindchanged nothing
18:42:25GodEater_and git status shows ?
18:42:31Rincewindi searched with grep for this misterious gcc: unrecognized option '-070910"' but didn't find anything
18:42:50Rincewindnothing added to commit but untracked files present (use "git add" to track)
18:43:40Rincewindthe untracked files are simbuild/ and a few files in tools/ which are generated during a build. nothing suspicious
18:44:10GodEater_that's the date
18:44:32GodEater_the -070910
18:44:41Rincewindhm ok, so it is generated somewhere
18:44:43GodEater_have you tried deleting your build directory
18:44:45 Part Domonoky
18:44:48GodEater_and redoing configure
18:45:01Rincewindyes, a few times
18:45:12GodEater_which OS you on ?
18:45:14GodEater_ubuntu ?
18:45:25Rincewindubuntu 7.10 gutsy
18:45:36GodEater_wonder if this is a dash/bash issue
18:46:10Rincewindthe svn checkout on the same machine is working...
18:46:12GodEater_and it's a sim you're trying to build, not an actual target
18:46:15chrisjs169i'm on gutsy as well - what's the problem?
18:47:15GodEater_he checked out the code tree using git instead of svn
18:47:18GodEater_and it won't build
18:47:28GodEater_Rincewind: could you pastebin the entire error please ?
18:48:24GodEater_Rincewind: it still could be a dash/bash issue
18:48:40GodEater_could you redo the symlink from sh->dash
18:48:46GodEater_and replace it with one to bash
18:49:11GodEater_the configure / make process tries to do some funky stuff with the svn version
18:49:17GodEater_which doesn't work on a git tree
18:49:42GodEater_and that gcc error is making me suspicious that that's the issue
18:49:46RincewindGodEater, I think you are on to something there
18:50:05GodEater_with bash running configure it doesn't matter - you just get left with an empty version string
18:50:13GodEater_but clearly dash is tripping on it
18:50:33GodEater_are you okay redoing the symlink ?
18:50:57Rincewindif you tell me exactly where and how...
18:51:23GodEater_first do "which sh"
18:51:32GodEater_and find out which directory it's in (/bin I'm guessing)
18:51:41eigmamaybe run with make V=1 so you see the gcc command line?
18:51:43RincewindI'm there
18:51:59GodEater_then do "rm /bin/sh"
18:52:11GodEater_followed by "ln -s /bin/bash sh"
18:52:54GodEater_then wipe out your whole simbuild dir
18:52:58GodEater_and re-run configure

19:03:43Rincewindeigma: no VERSION in docs
19:04:09eigmaRincewind: okay, now go to your rockbox root, and run "svnversion .; svnversion tools" and post
19:04:11GodEater_svnversion just returns a string "exported" when you run it on your own
19:04:15amiconnBut I wonder why that version string confuses gcc
19:04:22 Join petur [0] (n=petur@rockbox/developer/petur)
19:04:23amiconnIt's a literal string after all...
19:04:25eigmaamiconn: space isn't propertly quited
19:04:28GodEater_amiconn: the space in it I guess
19:04:51amiconneigma: The whole stirng is quoted, isn't it?
19:05:14amiconn-DAPPSVERSION=\"rexportiert -070910\"
19:05:19eigmait's escape-quoted so that it ends up quoted to the preprocessor. but on the shell command-line, spaces are free to split into two arguments
19:05:40eigmaproper quoting would be −−> "-DAPPS...."
19:05:47RincewindI think I know the problem now. Normally it uses the svn revision, but when that isn't availiable it uses some output that says "exported xx" and my german string doesn't match this
19:05:51amiconnBah, *nix shells are strange beats...
19:06:03amiconnBeasts even
19:06:12eigmaRincewind: what is the output of svnversion on those two directories?
19:06:46Rincewindeigma: svnversion gives "exportiert"
19:06:46GodEater_Rincewind: indeed, it's not matching the string in
19:07:07Rincewindok, so I have to make my own

19:18:18amiconnRincewind: Not if you run it on a source tree that is not an svn working copy
19:18:32amiconnAren't there quotes missing in line 22?
19:18:43eigmadoesn't make a difference because there are no spaces
19:19:10eigmait's just a command line, and the first quotes are removed before passing to the "[" command anyway
19:19:18amiconnOkay, but it's odd to use quotes in line 18 and no quotes in line 22 imho
19:19:31eigmaI'm just saying it's functionally correct
19:19:35eigmabut i agree that it's bad style
19:19:39Rincewindeigma: the output is "exportiert" (without quotes)
19:19:44eigmaRincewind: for both?
19:19:49Rincewindfor both, yes
19:20:24eigmathen the output of an unmodified, without LANG=C, should be rexportiert-YYMMDD
19:20:34eigmaRincewind: can you confirm this/
19:20:55amiconnOn my linux box, 'svnversion' outputs 'exportiert' but 'LANG=C svnversion' outputs 'exported'
19:21:05Rincewindrexportiert -070910
19:21:22Rincewindthere is a space between rexportiert and -
19:21:44amiconnThere is a space at the end of the localised string: 'exportiert '
19:22:07eigmawell, that's silly
19:22:18amiconnYes it is, but it's also a fact...
19:22:38amiconnSo the LANG=C will fix the problem
19:23:01preglowwho did the eq presets, again?
19:23:08eigmaI would agree; prepend LANG=C before svnversion. I would also add a comment stating why it's necessary. I can make the patch, but it's pretty easy

19:29:09eigmausing $1 instead of $TOP?
19:29:40amiconnIf the second 'svnver' call _fails_, the output is not "exported" so line 25 sets SVNVER, not line 27 ...

20:49:38coma-and like i said, it doesn't work on my dad's XP laptop, also running as admin
20:49:39amiconnbecause all users created during setup have administrative rights, meaning that users with little knowledge usually work with admin rightds all the time

21:45:36preglowtictoc: yes

21:46:17preglowand now that i think about it, it being slower on coldfire for aligned access makes no sense...

22:40:52maxkelleyI hate that manufacturers think that customers are too stupid to use a screwdriver, or at least don't provide for those that are able to.

22:43:22alienbiker99is there any reason why the H10 20gb freezes after everysong?
22:43:26scorcheBagder: what are your thoughts on this issue with dual-booting for the Rs?...the part i dont get about the whole thing, is that i dual-boot just fine
22:43:57BagderI would say it seems like there's a problem there for some people...
22:44:16Bagdertracking that down might require some fun poking and disassembly or similar
22:44:39scorcheyes, but wouldnt one think that i would have a problem as well? seems like i am the only one who has no issues with it
22:44:47maxkelleyscorche: did you build your own rockbox? if so, does your rockbox build allow dual-booting on other R's?
22:45:10scorchemaxkelley: i performed the installation, and then write that tutorial of what i did for everyone else to use
22:46:01Bagderwell, perhaps there's something of a coincidence or whatever. Clearly people have problems... and when they have rockbox running and they can select the OF, I can't see how they could have messed up in very many wats
22:46:29scorchei cant just seems very odd that i am the only one who can dual boot
22:46:47maxkelleyoh, and my C200 can't boot the OF :) The sansa firmware.mi4 goes in SYSTEM/OF.mi4, right?
22:46:48BagderI agree
22:47:04RincewindBagder: do you mind if I submit your blog post to
22:47:12Bagderfeel free
22:47:17maxkelleyI'll vote it up.
22:47:30maxkelleyRincewind: gimme a link when you're done.
22:48:05eigmaRincewind: same, please
22:48:08scorcheBagder: it is almost making me want to go and get another R to see if i can dual boot on that one...
22:48:53maxkelleyscorche: make an image or something of your E200R, send it to someone else with one, see if it works.
22:49:18scorchemaxkelley: i cant really, as part of the installation process involves an area i cant access
22:50:23scorchewell, i can still host my OF.mi4 and such and have them load it...
22:50:42maxkelleyperhaps you have an e200 disguised as an R :p
22:50:48scorchei dont

22:51:24Bagderthat's quite a difference that is easy to see
22:51:32maxkelleyI was joking :)
22:51:40Bagderthey actually exist
22:52:02scorcheyup, but mine isnt one of those
22:52:06Bagderor rather e200 models that have some signs of R on them
22:52:14maxkelleytry giving your OF.mi4 to someone else. or your rockbox bootloader, or something.
22:52:57scorcheBagder: would an improper OF.mi4 produce these results?

22:54:27***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
22:54:34BagderI blame opera
22:54:55scorcheBagder: from what it sounds like, the rockbox bootloader executes them, but then the screen fades to white, then just fades more
22:55:06preglowBagder: works in 9.5
22:55:36scorcheas a note, mine fades to white as well, but only for a second and then it goes to the OF
22:55:40Bagderscorche: you mean they never see any signs of the OF working? If so, it sounds like bad mi4s or similar
22:56:04scorcheBagder: that is what it sounds like
22:56:13maxkelleyscorche: compare your sansa OF version with someone else who's experiencing the problem, and get them to try with your firmware version.
22:56:14Bagdermaybe I should learn to read the small print...
22:56:35scorchemaxkelley: that is what i am doing now (hosting my OF.mi4)

23:11:34DwylocWhat’s up with the new rockbox web site front page? It seems to have removed the lost useful information, the description of what’s changes committed to SVN do :(
23:13:02DwylocPlus I can no longer find a link to the full change log if I wish to search through last weeks changes.
23:13:32scorchethey are still there...just not linked to
23:13:52preglowDwyloc: click the "subversion" link
23:14:04DwylocThis makes testing the couse of bug harder then reporting bugs.
23:14:06preglowthere you see the commit messages
23:15:03Dwylocpreglow: I have tried that it only shows the days changes
23:15:54preglowyeah, the other urls aren't there anymore
23:16:30preglowi guess they should be
23:16:58DwylocWould it not be more usefull to show the description of the change and who made the change on the front page than which files have changed?
23:17:47dionoeaI think that it would.
23:18:02DwylocAt lest from a users point of view, but I like the other info added to the front page. :)
23:18:06dionoeaYou could even leave the who part out (although that doesn't take a lot of space)
23:18:55eigmaaww, how cute, I'm in CREDITS now
23:18:56DwylocI quite like seeing the people doing the work credited on the front page though.
23:20:34DwylocAny way I just thought I would offer some feedback on the changes.

23:34:03[aB]DaRkNeSSit isnt in the list either
23:34:05scorchethis isnt #craigslist...this is #rockbox
23:34:10scorchewe have gone through this before

23:34:25[aB]DaRkNeSShow do i add tags to a cl item

23:34:51scorchedo you not know what guidelines are for?

23:37:49MBaller20any updates on the auto-installer
23:38:03bluebrotherwhat auto-installer?
23:38:23MBaller20sorry, for rockbox on e200r
23:38:37bluebrotherthere is Rockbox Utility but it requires you to do some steps
23:38:48bluebrotherand that's a completely different thing
23:38:52MBaller20do you need linux?
23:39:01scorchecurrently, yes
23:39:26MBaller20I only i didn't have this very old computer
23:39:39alienbiker99hm, im suprised how few wps's there are for the e200 compared to other targets
23:40:14krazykitif i can make icons that don't suck, i'd make a WPS
23:40:17MBaller20i wish i knew about e200r and e200 before i bought the e 200r
23:40:28n1salienbiker99: it has a different aspec ratio which makes adapting wps'es from other targets harder and require more re-design
23:40:30krazykitso far, i've only made an inverted iCatcher which i rather like
23:40:37webmindnot sure this is part of rockbox, but on my ipod nano I get to see a battery icon only
23:40:47n1salso it's one of the newes targets to be supported
23:40:47webminddoes this mean it's in charge only mode ?
23:41:22alienbiker99yeah, later on if i have time i might try to port one from another target, i dont know how it will go though, but it will be a learning experience
23:41:46krazykitthe other thing is, it'd be nice if people provided their source images (especially if they're svg)

23:42:11n1sI rather like the portrait aspect for a dap, much easier to have much info in the wps IMO
23:42:40MBaller20i read someone's post that said he already had the installer but wasn't sure if it should be released yet
23:42:40n1salienbiker99: that would be something like fraud, i'd guess :-/

23:45:48MBaller20I can't wait until this release :)
23:46:34scorchehe wasnt a developer, and it isnt quite ready yet
23:47:11scorchethe developer who is working on that is JdGordon
23:47:40MBaller20the person i read it from was chrisjs169 or something like that
23:48:00scorchehe was just testing something
23:48:25scorchethat JdGordon made...but as i said, it isnt quite ready and still would require linux at this point
23:48:37MBaller20thought so
23:49:17n1seigma: is the increase of the size of the mem_conf[] array in system-pnx0101.c supposed to be included in the patch in FS #7751 ?
23:49:47eigman1s: I guess not ^_^
23:50:07eigmaI was too lazy to create a new patch, tracker, description, etc, etc
23:50:16n1seigma: ok, it looks good, I'll commit it tomorrow :-)
23:50:38eigmait's tested on all ARM archs on
23:50:44eigmahaven't tested the sims yet, working on that
23:50:46MBaller20i guess it's almost impossible to get over this linux only option
23:50:47n1seigma: you know you can post updated patches as attachments in comments to a task in the tracker, right?

23:51:15n1swell, goddnight

23:51:36MBaller20what time is it there
23:51:38scorcheMBaller20: it isnt impossible, but it requires a bit of work to get it working with windows

23:52:19MBaller20it's 5:53PM in Albany, U.S. right now
23:52:40MBaller20i just got back from football
23:52:55scorchetry to keep the discussion on-topic please ;)
23:53:03MBaller20haha, my bad
23:54:12MBaller20now would i have to make the livecd or can i just run linux without it
23:54:57krazykityou have to actually burn the CD. make sure to burn from ISO / from disc image, rather than simply dragging the iso to a data project
23:55:34MBaller20how would i do that
23:55:57MBaller20i don;t see the differnce
