#rockbox log for 2008-01-17

00:00:00*JdGordon|w 's sansa seems to have a metalica fetish atm :p
00:00:09BigBambiwebguest90: It is fine, but a little hard to understand
00:00:16BigBambiJacobDude: To the wiki?
00:00:29BigBambiWhat is your wiki name?
00:00:42BigBambiDude is your surname?
00:01:00BigBambiYour real name is Jacob Dude?
00:01:07JacobDudeno -_-

00:01:12JacobDudejacob is real first
00:01:22BigBambiWell, if you read the wiki, you are required to use your real name
00:01:25JdGordon|wsimple asnwer was "yes"
00:01:30webguest90my OF makes strange things... pushing up the volume to max, without pressing a button, navigation-stick does nothing an the power-button doesnt work, only can shut down the player by resetting
00:01:35JacobDudeoh fine...
00:01:37BigBambiJdGordon: I wouldn't have believed him
00:02:02idnarBigBambi: are you going to demand two pieces of photo ID? ;P
00:02:05*JdGordon|w never got the point of the wiki forcing real names.. but ok
00:02:19webguest90and at the top of the probs: hes playing a song, that doesnt even exist on the player
00:02:39BigBambiidnar: maybe :)
00:02:43webguest90so rockbox is the only way
00:02:45advcomp2019i think i know what webguest90 want to do on rockbox
00:02:55BigBambiwebguest90: That is impossible, the song must be there
00:03:54*Bagder recalls having used the X5 OF once...
00:04:08BagderI got stuck in the FM screen and couldn't get out of it...
00:04:11BigBambiBagder: And did it play non-existant songs?
00:04:18Bagderhad to resort to reading the manual ;-)
00:04:23webguest90no, thats the weird thing... i*ve formatted the player an he still plays the song
00:04:33BigBambiwebguest90: It MUST be there
00:04:40webguest90NO ^^
00:04:43BigBambiThe x5 cannot generate songs
00:04:55webguest90know that
00:05:06BigBambitherefore it must be there
00:05:08webguest90but thats exactly my prob
00:05:14Bagderis the song "oooh cowon I love you!" ? ;-)
00:05:15 Quit desowin ()
00:05:31advcomp2019webguest90 wants to play the music that is inside folders within a folder without making a playlist
00:05:49webguest90no, some classical
00:05:49Bagderadvcomp2019: and BigBambi told him how to do it...
00:05:50BigBambiadvcomp2019: Which is what I gave him instructions for

00:08:08 Quit Robin ("Miranda IM! Smaller, Faster, Easier.")
00:10:09webguest90oh.. theres another question: is there a package where every patch is in it, or must i download all patches seperatly?
00:10:18BigBambiEvery patch?
00:10:29BigBambiThere are hundreds, and most don't work
00:10:43BigBambiOr are out of date, or do condradictory things
00:11:01BigBambiTo get rockbox, you need the current build + fonts + bootloader mainly
00:11:06BigBambiAll plugins are included
00:11:11webguest90ah ok, thx
00:11:35 Quit bertrik ("bye")
00:12:21pixelmaBagder: that's called "iAUDIO's Theme" (original spelling) by Jack Lee on "iAUDIO-Friends & Lovers" :P
00:13:11Bagderahah, oh yes I had forgot there actually was one of those. I only remembered the iriver one...
00:14:57webguest90theres a theme that looks like the iaudio? where can i get this
00:15:37*BigBambi seriously suggest reading the manual
00:15:52pixelmanah, that's the name of the song Cowon put on there
00:16:07preglowruntime definitely seems better on nano now
00:16:41webguest90ah ok

00:26:03webguest90im back ^^
00:26:31webguest90i activated recursivly insert directories an added my music folder
00:28:20webguest90but when i'm browsing my music folder an find an artist i want to listen now and go the soundfile an select play by pressing the stick he makes a new playlist with the songs in this directory
00:28:58BigBambiyou hold select then chose insert to add to current playlist
00:28:58*Bagder says nothing...
00:29:05BigBambiAs I have already told you once
00:29:17webguest90ive done so
00:29:25BigBambiso what is the problem?
00:29:29webguest90and all files are in the playlist
00:30:24webguest90but when i browse my folder an select one title in folder Guardian/Tales/Sound.mp3 he makes a new playlist with the folder Tales
00:30:51BigBambinot if you hold select to get the context menu then chose insert it doesn't
00:31:00webguest90but i just want, that hes jumping to that file in the still existing playlist
00:31:13BigBambiyou cannot do that
00:31:36BigBambichose insert next then skip to the next song is the closest you will get
00:32:12advcomp2019in the OF of the x5 there is an option to play folder
00:32:37 Join dfkt [0] (i=dfkt@unaffiliated/dfkt)
00:32:42BigBambiadvcomp2019: I think he wants to play a single track immediately then go back to the previous playlist
00:32:54webguest90yea.. and if i told him to play folder MUSIC he played it and just jumped to the file i wanted
00:33:01 Quit homielowe (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:33:22BigBambiwebguest90: As, I have said, you cannot do that in rockbox, and I have told you the nearest thing to it
00:34:13webguest90yea tried it and works
00:34:41webguest90but i see the prob in 2 weeks ^^ my playlist will be 7 times as long as usual ^^
00:35:03BigBambiuse queue next then, that will remove the file once it has played
00:35:12webguest90but if this is the only option i have to accept ^^
00:35:17BigBambiAnd please read the manual, this is all in there
00:35:38webguest90ok, i've read it some months ago ^^
00:35:46webguest90still dont remember
00:35:47BigBambilooks like it is time to read it again then

01:45:27PaulJam_yes, and you need to regenerate it everytime you add a folder that you want to include
01:46:17goffai probably did that before on the last build.. but that was like october

02:43:20crazy_busis the rockbox player comparison page correct in saying the sandisk sansa e200 series has 3 times the battery life than the c200's (15 vs 5 hours.) Because I thought they had essentially the same processors in them
02:43:30cleaner_thanks. now when I select the F: drive and e200 device I get a popup "searching for sansas. No sansa found."
02:45:45soapcrazy_bus, do they have exactly the same battery?
02:47:28crazy_busI don't think so. I thought the e200 had a slightly more powerful one to compensate the bigger screen

03:13:31countrymonkeyPlease, I need something to do and the rest of the rb community would probably appreciate it.
03:13:47cool_walking_I wouldn't expect to see that in Rockbox
03:14:03countrymonkeyIf you remember when all voices were universal, you would know that there was a very handy script to help make voices.
03:14:14countrymonkeyand this is a windows script

12:36:40GodEateranyone think it's worth patching albumart.c to remove it's own strip_extension() and replacing it with calls to the tree.c implementation ?
12:37:49markunI wouldn't mind
12:41:16 Quit Casainho (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
12:42:35linuxstbThey look to behave subtly different though, so it's not as simple as changing one call to use the other.
12:43:46linuxstbe.g. the tree.c doesn't perform the copy if there is no . in the filename, but instead returns a pointer to the original filename. The albumart implementation would return a NULL pointer in that case...
12:44:57GodEaterbut Nico's code doesn't check for a NULL pointer after the call though
12:45:02GodEaterhe just assumes it worked

13:15:22LloreanProbably a good idea. Li based batteries just don't age well
13:16:52pregloworly now
13:17:05preglowh120 gets nice runtimes still, and that's bloody ages old, and used much to boot
13:18:55LloreanI bet a new battery of the same capacity would show a lot more
13:20:05LloreanThe base runtime of the Nano's pretty miserable anyway, and SVN still gets something like 20% less than that
13:20:47preglowyeah, know
13:20:48preglowi wonder why
13:21:14LloreanWell there's a patch in the tracker that's supposed to bring us pretty close to OF runtimes for PP targets finally
13:21:27preglow8:40 isn't blose to of runtime
13:21:40preglowso nano has worse issues than the other pp targets, it seems
13:21:51LloreanNano's actually closer to OF than others, or used to be.
13:21:55LloreanPercentage wise
13:22:14preglowbut i'm giving this sucker a good charge now, then we'll see how retailos does
13:22:16LloreanThe HD power off brought the rest of the iPods to about where the Nano is.
13:22:23preglowtoo bad i'll have to bloody monitor that by hand, though
13:22:27LloreanThe Nano's only supposed to have about 14 hours when new.
13:22:38LloreanWhich would suggest 11.5 or so in Rockbox with a brand new batter.
13:23:32preglowi could whip up some batter and see if that helps too :)

15:50:16LambdaCalculus37I'll also try it on my c240.
15:50:25linuxstbHave you done tests in the past? Most useful would be if you had something to compare it with.

16:22:59LambdaCalculus37iwantanimac: Sounds like my friend here:

17:05:02LloreanIf someone wrote one, sure.
17:05:21PuppiesOnAcid`when it's listing out albums/artists
17:05:24markunI was thinking about a replaygain plugin, for that we need tag writing support as well
17:05:28PuppiesOnAcid`is it pulling that from the iTunes DB file?
17:05:38markunno, just from the tags
17:05:47PuppiesOnAcid`so we just need a tag editor?
17:05:57markunyes, 'just' a tag editor
17:06:38LloreanRemember that Rockbox supports a lot of tag formats, and it'd need to basically handle all of them. You'd probably want to figure out how to use the existing metadata parsers, at least
17:06:52PuppiesOnAcid`no shit
17:07:26LloreanWell, since you thought it used the iTunesDB, it seemed somewhat likely you might not know it ran on non-iPod devices, for example
17:07:37markunLlorean: well, maybe we can start by supporting just a few formats and show a message for unsopported files
17:07:58Lloreanmarkun: Well the code already exists to read every supported tag format, anyway.
17:08:59LloreanBut yeah, starting with the most common metadata types probably wouldn't be bad. ID3, Vorbis Comment, and MP4 tags to start with, I'd imagine.
17:09:17markunI hope id3.c can one day be moved to apps/metadata
17:09:17linuxstbOnly? ;)
17:09:33LloreanWell, there's already an ID3 editor of some sort somewhere in the tracker
17:11:30linuxstbRegarding replaygain, I think it would be most useful if Rockbox could "auto-tag" - i.e. add the metadata whilst playing the files. A plugin seems a bit pointless.
17:11:41*Llorean agrees
17:11:48PuppiesOnAcid`yeah but like

17:12:00markuna plugin is nice too, for use in the sim
17:12:15markunI use vbrfix in the sim too on my files at home for example
17:12:15*LambdaCalculus37 agrees
17:12:29linuxstbYou could just write an app to do it, borrowing the Rockbox metadata parsers...
17:12:41Lloreanlinuxstb: Another idea. We support "metadata in external files" in a sense, by way of .cue.
17:12:43PuppiesOnAcid`yeah, but i want to be able to do it ON my ipod
17:13:02LloreanWe could also add song.extension.metadata files to allow tagging (and replaygaining) of "untaggable" formats.
17:13:02PuppiesOnAcid`is there documentation for the rockbox text editor?
17:13:12PuppiesOnAcid`like the part when you're selecting characters

18:59:30ally_xoxofor ipod :P
18:59:35ally_xoxoabout how long does it take?
18:59:38Domonokyall devices are easy, just use rbutil :-)
18:59:50LambdaCalculus37ally_xoxo: I got it done in 10 minutes. Did it the manual way.
19:00:12LambdaCalculus37Here's the link to rbutil:
19:00:34LambdaCalculus37ally_xoxo: Which iPod model?
19:01:50ally_xoxoits the ipod video
19:01:55ally_xoxoi belive its the 4th generation/
19:02:10ally_xoxohas the click wheel on it
19:02:13LambdaCalculus37No, the iPod video is a 5th Generation iPod.
19:02:13Domonokyipod video is 5the and 5.5th generation..
19:02:36LambdaCalculus37ally_xoxo: Like this?
19:02:51LambdaCalculus37Or like this?
19:03:42LambdaCalculus37Or perhaps even like this?
19:04:52ally_xoxoactually like this
19:05:15LambdaCalculus37Cool, then you're set to travel. :)
19:05:24ally_xoxoi bought my ipod in 2006
19:05:33Domonokyally_xoxo: just rbutil on it, it will tell which it is... (and wont work on the classic)
19:05:51LambdaCalculus37And here's the manual for the iPod video:
19:06:38LambdaCalculus37Domonoky: I was making sure it was indeed a video. Some people seem to be confusing the Classic with the video, especially on the forums.

19:07:44ally_xoxoinstalling rockbox from ubuntu, is that okay?
19:07:51preglowof course
19:07:57LambdaCalculus37ally_xoxo: Yes, it's perfect.
19:08:14ally_xoxoi've been on linux for 48 hours
19:08:16ally_xoxostill learning
19:08:19LambdaCalculus37As for Rockbox, I would never have given my iPod a second thought if it hadn't been for Rockbox.
19:08:22ally_xoxoits kinda hard
19:08:29Domonokyally_xoxo: beware, the linux version of rbutil (only 1.0.2 aviable) has a big bug !!
19:08:37ally_xoxooh no
19:08:51linuxstbDomonoky: Do you build the Linux binaries, or does bluebrother?
19:09:04LambdaCalculus37ally_xoxo: The manual has a link to download iPodpatcher for Linux, so you can do it the manual way if need be.
19:09:05Domonokydont use the buttons on the first tab of rbutil, use the install options on the second tab of rbutil 1.0.2
19:09:41Domonokybluebrother build the last liny rbutil binary.. i dont have the right setup for it ( i generate windows version) :-)
19:09:51LambdaCalculus37And Linux help can be had by Googling "The Linux Documentation Project", or visiting the page for your distro.
19:10:08nanokLambdaCalculus37: same here, i had a sigmatel i liked a lot, but i just had to have rockbox, only reason for which i bought the sansa
19:10:30*Domonoky would be really greatfull if somebody could generate a new static linux binary of rbutil..
19:11:14ally_xoxowhat is the easiest way for a beginner like me
19:11:27Domonokyally_xoxo: you can also just use the manual way to install rockbox, it isnt hard either..

22:24:46*amiconn would use 'su' in a terminal (debian), but on ubuntu, root is disabled iirc...
22:24:54BigBambiit is, yes
22:24:56ally_xoxoso cd /home/alison/rockbox/rbutil ?
22:25:19BigBambi<BigBambi> and type sudo ./rbutilqt
22:25:19BigBambi<BigBambi> it will prompt for your password
22:25:20nanokamiconn: exactly. and not such a bad idea, either
22:25:29*amiconn prefers the 'su' way
22:26:05ally_xoxoi did that
22:26:15nanokamiconn: sometimes it is needed, anyway. or more confortable
22:26:25pixelmaBigBambi: yes, I began a rework of the installation chapter (doesn't mention the v2 Sansas for example too) but having a bit of a hard time with the phrasing (and to find a nice order)
22:26:43ally_xoxoi did that bigbambi
22:26:44BigBambipixelma: I'm sure :) It isn't a nice job
22:26:49ally_xoxobut i still get an error
22:26:54BigBambially_xoxo: cool, so rbutil is running now?
22:26:55ally_xoxoabout invalid configuration...
22:27:06ally_xoxoyes its running..

22:27:40pixelma"dont use the buttons on the first tab of rbutil, use the install options on the second tab of rbutil 1.0.2" - did you do that?

22:40:30ally_xoxowhat do you mean apple firmware?
22:40:44ally_xoxoi think i restored the ipod already
22:40:52ally_xoxousing my Mac computer
22:40:52BigBambiThe thing that appears when you turn the ipod on normally
22:40:59BigBambiIt won't work then
22:41:04ally_xoxooh noooo
22:41:08ally_xoxoso what should i do?
22:41:10BigBambiThe Mac formats the disk as HFS+
22:41:15BigBambiIt needs to be FAT32
22:41:23ally_xoxono wonder...
22:41:28ally_xoxowell i dont have windows on
22:41:32BigBambiThe easiest way is to restore it from a windows itunes pc
22:41:40ally_xoxomight have it on my other machine...
22:41:42BigBambiIf not there is a manual way, but it is more complicated
22:41:52ally_xoxolets try the manual way
22:42:51BigBambiI have to find the instructions
22:43:07ally_xoxook well i just checked my brothers computer: locked and hes at work
22:43:09ally_xoxoso no luck :(

22:44:51ally_xoxoso i have to download a parition table?
22:44:55dewdudeis it normal that if you boot rockbox with the usb plugged in, windows pops up with "rockbox media player" as new hardware, then the unit reboots into disk mode only to start a cycle of constant rebooting?
22:45:02BigBambially_xoxo: If it says so
22:45:08ally_xoxoi did
22:45:18BigBambiAll I'm doing is reading the instructions at the same time as you
22:45:37ally_xoxowhat is the difference:
22:45:40ally_xoxo 30GB Video (512-byte sectors) mbr-video30gb.bin
22:45:40ally_xoxo30GB Video (2048-byte sectors) mbr-video30gb-2048.bin
22:45:44krazykitdewdude, please read the MajorChanges wiki page
22:45:45ally_xoxoboth are 30GB VIdeo...
22:46:18dewduderight....a simple "yes" would of sufficed
22:46:20 Part dewdude ("Leaving")
22:46:31ally_xoxoNOTE: If you have the 30GB video ipod, you need to determine your sector size. This can be done with the ipodpatcher command - after identifying your ipod, type "ipodpatcher /dev/diskN" (replacing diskN with the device name assigned to your ipod). This should then display the sector size.
22:46:41BigBambiplease don't paste loads here
22:46:49ally_xoxosorry :(
22:46:56BigBambidon't worry
22:47:10ally_xoxomy computer doesn't recognize my ipod anymore...
22:47:28BigBambiNo, you need to reboot to disk mode
22:47:41BigBambiThe instructions on how to do so are in the manual
22:48:22BigBambiIt really would be much easier to do this on a windows PC
22:48:49ally_xoxoi'd have to wait 2 hours :(
22:48:58ally_xoxobut i guess i'll do that for you bigbambi
22:49:18amiconnDoes the ipod updater run under wine?
22:49:27BigBambicheers - I think it would be better for both of us
22:49:36*amiconn doesn't really expect it to though
22:49:46ally_xoxoi agree too
22:49:56ally_xoxobut i hope you will see be on to help me :)
22:50:10BigBambiWell, it is 11pm now so probably not
