00:09:42stripwaxQuick question - if I make a change to a single codec .c file, why does make take so long ?
00:11:36BagderJdGordon: as in the build after 70 which is what the table contains right now
00:11:56Bagderstripwax: due to makefile flaws
00:12:18stripwaxthanks tho

00:18:48saratogai was just reading the logs
00:18:59saratogahas it been verified that the apple firmware doesn't vary the voltage?
00:19:22shotofaddsBuild table should update soon...
00:21:21stripwaxhm, recently been getting this a few times - "*PANIC* Updating size on empty dir entry 83" - something fishy in recent builds or do I need a fsck?
00:23:59Nico_Phaha I love the mrobe500i sim with the default theme
00:25:28Nico_PJdGordon|w: what are the button bindings?
00:26:03Nico_PI can't seem to be able to do anything in the WPS
00:26:56preglowsaratoga: i don't believe anyone verified anything like that, no
00:27:03preglowsaratoga: but it is kind of unlikely
00:27:27saratogapreglow: why not? they included a power management chip with software controlled voltage, while sandisk did not
00:27:34saratogapresumably there was a reason for that
00:27:36JdGordon|wNico_P: there are no buttons... you need to use the mouse
00:27:38Bagderoh, my host got the honor of building the first d2 sim build
00:27:40stripwaxhm, fsck is clean. it just seems to 'happen' from time to time and lock up that way.
00:27:40JdGordon|w16135 NE 85th ST
00:27:59preglowsaratoga: the chip does tons of other stuff than just that
00:28:03Nico_PJdGordon|w: and in the WPS?
00:28:06JdGordon|wnow you all know my secret hideout :'(
00:28:29*Bagder sends out "the team"
00:28:32JdGordon|wNico_P: umm.. iirc you need to have a wps which supports the regions... cant remember if that was coomed or not though
00:28:42saratogapreglow: what else does it do?
00:28:42shotofaddsBagder: pride of place on the left hand side :) what on earth is the sort order?!
00:28:51preglowsaratoga: but anyway, it shouldn't be too hard to find out, it wasn't too hard to find the pcf communication function in the bl, i don't think retailos should be any harder, than it should be easy to find out if retailos writes to those regs
00:29:01saratogaBuschel made it sound like rockbox barely touched the device
00:29:02JdGordon|w /dev/random :p
00:29:08preglowrockbox barely does
00:29:13preglowit sets a couple of voltages and uses it for alarms
00:29:15preglowthat's that, afaik
00:29:29saratogai don't think the bootloader would need to scale the voltage
00:29:37preglowno, but retailos would
00:29:38Bagdershotofadds: the sort order is very hard to see in the table itself, partly because the full title it uses are a bit weird, but also because the full titles aren't shown in the pics used as titles for each column
00:29:41saratogaprobably just inits it and hands off to the OS
00:29:57Bagderbut it is plain alphabetical order

00:35:34stripwaxHa. Does profiling interfere with backlight on ipod video? (seems like it). Guess the timer is needed
00:35:56preglowi did make an overview over what pcf regs the bl touched, but i lost that info in a stupid "rm -rf" incident
00:36:41*shotofadds intended to get some flash reading code in SVN tonight instead of playing with the sim; it'll have to wait...
00:38:46shotofaddsI can read raw pages from the NAND flash, I "just" need to figure out the logical->physical address translation. I think that may take some time :/
00:38:47saratogapreglow: the datasheet says the package isn't surface mount, so in theory you (or someone with an Ipod) could open the player and stick a DMM lead to the VDD trace and see what the voltage is
00:38:56oboBagder: that's a lot of spam you get... you don't reject anything straight at the MTA level?

00:39:27Bagderobo: nope
00:39:55*stripwax sighs - profiling has created *two* files both named profile.out :(
00:41:09saratogawow you got profiling to work?

00:43:51saratogayou feel like opening it?
00:44:21stripwaxhad to hack some things to prevent IRAM-out-of-space, and make some changes to profile.c to actually build, and fix a #define redefinition in sudoko ..
00:44:50stripwaxfeel like opening it .. ?? not right now - unless it's completely and transparently reversible and has no chance of causing damage
00:45:22saratogai've only opened the 3G and it wasn't particularly hard but i can't say about the 5G
00:45:27preglow5g is worse...
00:45:33saratogathough people do upgrade the batteries so i assume its possible

01:22:56stripwaxwasn't sure about some of the insane counts/ticks for e.g. mdct_backward
01:23:29preglowi don't see why that shouldn't have a high tick count, heh
01:23:59stripwaxbut output was skipping pretty badly every few seconds (guess profiling itself needs time to housekeep)
01:24:23stripwaxnot that my last two statements are connected (they are not)
01:24:40preglowyeah, probably
01:24:44preglowdon't really know how it works
01:24:46stripwaxyeah, mdct_backward should have a high tick count, but seemed like a huge call count as well
01:25:11stripwaxbut then I don't know the format of that profile.out so maybe that's just how it is
01:25:22amiconnProfiling slows everything down to a crawl, that's expected

01:26:04stripwaxokie doke
01:26:46saratogafor reference, wma spends ~55% of its time doing mdcts, so i would expect vorbis to do the same
01:27:10stripwaxsaratoga - yeah, I read a paper on Tremor this evening, seems about 50% of the time in mdct
01:27:19stripwaxwho knows if that's true on rockbox though
01:27:37preglowwell, we use the stock mdct...
01:27:38stripwaxwould be fun trying to do mdcts in parallel on both cores..
01:27:41preglowon a crappy compiler.....
01:28:15saratogadidn't a lot of the mdct get converted to ASM anyway?

02:10:04jhMikeSamiconn: around now
02:10:40amiconnHow many 'nop's did you add in main.c?
02:11:02amiconnAnd did you ever need to change the amount of nops to get it working again?
02:11:41amiconnI made an interesting observation on my 2nd Gen - I added one single nop, and all builds ever since didn't crash
02:11:56jhMikeSIt wasn't constant at the time I was checking
02:12:23amiconnThis might just be pure luck, but it might also mean that the alignment problem theory doesn't hold
02:12:54jhMikeSsomething seemed to change recently where fewer builds crash since I haven't had to do it lately
02:13:30amiconnHmm. I have that 'nop' still in there (PP5002 only of course)
02:13:51amiconnShould probably try without - but if it crashes, a periodicity test might be helpful
02:14:45jhMikeSstill, it's completely dependent on having the cache turned on
02:14:53 Quit DerDome ("Leaving.")
02:15:14amiconnI'm not sure whether that's possible, but could it be an init race between the cores somehow?
02:15:40amiconnI mean, even if the cop isn't used, it is initialised in crt0 as well as the cpu
02:16:02jhMikeSno, because never waking the cop outside of crt0-S makes no difference
02:16:37amiconnYeah, but the cop *does* something in crt0, right?
02:16:40jhMikeSthe cores are strictly serialized in the init up to the end of the thread init
02:17:18amiconnAnd if that something isn't completely finished and the cpu starts doing something it better shouldn't do yet, it could crash
02:17:25jhMikeSjust sets up it's own stacks and such and waits for the CPU to complete. the cache is still disabled at that point.
02:17:56amiconnIs the cache write-back or write-through?
02:17:56jhMikeSmemory mapping is serialized too

02:18:52jhMikeSnot sure. how would I tell?
02:19:56 Quit MethoS- ("Konversation terminated!")
02:22:38jhMikeSI think it's writeback
02:27:33amiconnIs the cache enabled when crt0-pp is entered (i.e. by the bootloader)?
02:27:40jhMikeSRAM is definitely not automatically coherent after writing and it has dirty flags. In any case, the COP seems to have no bearing on this at all and the problem persists even if the COP is never woken after the bootloader
02:28:08 Quit tedrock (Client Quit)
02:28:13amiconnNo, but you said not enabling the cache fixes the problem
02:28:33jhMikeSI checked and it is not enabled at that point...not until init_cache is called.
02:28:52amiconncrt0-pp disables the cache in case it was enabled before (iiuc), but it does not flush/invalidate it
02:29:06amiconnSo if it's reenabled later, it might not be consistent with ram
02:29:25jhMikeSthe bootloader makes it coherent before calling the firmware
02:29:40jhMikeS_if_ it is enabled. but it isn't
02:32:25amiconnHmm. If it were, the code running before crt0-pp line 133 would populate the cache (consistent with ram), then it's disabled, and ram contents is changed (by bss init, stack munging etc)
02:32:59amiconnAnd if the cache is enabled later, its (now inconsistent) content could be used instead of fetching from ram
02:33:14jhMikeSthe init, like retailos, invalidates all the lines before enabling it
02:33:28amiconnThis might even be a bug in the PP5002 cache controller, and explain why it doesn't hit PP502x
02:33:44jhMikeSso, no writeback at all is perfomed before enabling it
02:34:29***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
02:34:56amiconnYeah, writeback wouldn't be necessary for such a bug to hit. Just using cached data instead of fetching from ram would, in case ram contents changed while the cache was disabled (but not invalidated)
02:35:56amiconnBut if it's invalidated before enabling, all should be well... hrrmmmm

06:28:51cool_walking_Wait... 32MB?
06:29:07TiMiD[FD]it asked me for how much ram to compile
06:29:13cool_walking_ah ok

06:46:04TiMiD[FD]oh maybe
06:46:17TiMiD[FD]would it be more natural the other way ?
06:46:36pixelmaTiMiD[FD]: yes, I actually have no time and was just reading the logs before I leave for work - please don't use plugin actions... I still have trouble getting the controls to work correctly with at least 2 plugins that you converted (clock, jackpot on c200) and the one you changed majorly (metronome on various Archos)
06:47:08cool_walking_I was just checking it was working and not just psychosomatic (I haven't used "fire" often)
06:47:21pixelmaTiMiD[FD]: probably not (about cool_walking_'s question, you can check the manual it's quite up to date there)
06:47:30pixelmathe manuals
06:47:50TiMiD[FD]I just corrected the code to work with the action's lib
06:48:14TiMiD[FD]seems to work flawlessly now
06:49:26TiMiD[FD]I don't use jackpot or metronome, but clock seems to work pretty nicely as well
06:49:41TiMiD[FD]are there some problems with this one ?
06:50:33cool_walking_talking to me? problems with what one?
06:50:39TiMiD[FD]ah no to pixelma
06:51:16TiMiD[FD]cool_walking_: do you have problems with the controls inside the clock plugin ?
06:51:37cool_walking_ah hold on, just connected it to the computer again..
06:52:21cool_walking_It said "Error loading settings"
06:52:46TiMiD[FD]maybe the first time you used it
06:53:00cool_walking_What are the controls supposed to do? Scrolling either way does a zoom in/out.
06:53:31TiMiD[FD]zoom ?
06:53:50TiMiD[FD]I didn't knew I put a zoom function into the clock plugin
06:53:52cool_walking_Yup the error was only the first time.
06:54:12cool_walking_It's only got two levels - in and out.
06:54:39TiMiD[FD]ah maybe you're talking about the clock switching from square mode / circle mode ?
06:54:47cool_walking_Yeah that's it
06:54:51TiMiD[FD]ok :)
06:55:12TiMiD[FD]now if you press left/right it should switch betweend analog/digital/binary
06:55:33cool_walking_Yep :)
06:55:56TiMiD[FD]can you access the menu and quit the plugin without removing your player's battery ?
06:56:39TiMiD[FD]ok so no problem with the clock plugin controls on the ipod video
06:57:10pixelmaTiMiD[FD]: try a c200 sim and change try to change the skin with a short press of up and compare with a long press and then try to figure out why is this so
06:57:32pixelmaabout plugin actions in general, please read the logs
06:58:15TiMiD[FD]ah yeah it doesn't behaves very nicely
06:58:41TiMiD[FD]I read the logs, you were talking about a conflict, but that wasn't the problem in the fire plugin
06:58:57TiMiD[FD]I'll try to get what's wrong with the clock plugin
06:58:58pixelmabtw. I know why but just want to show that the action system hides things, makes them harder to understand and I don't know a nice and easy solution (using exceptions is not nice and is against the purpose)
06:59:23TiMiD[FD]well I agree on that point
06:59:53TiMiD[FD]but it also makes the code easier to read and to develop when you don't have the target
07:00:38TiMiD[FD]since you can suppose that the action will have been choosen to match a key that makes sense
07:01:00pixelmano, for me it's not easier to read because I have to look it up in 4...5 places and not 2 (max) and you lose control
07:01:05TiMiD[FD]although it seems that the key mappings are not always logical
07:01:50pixelmait's not a keymap problem there, it's a combining of contexts... (like it is pitily done too often)
07:04:59pixelmaand please don't use plugin actions - did I already say that? If you read logs, you'll see that some developers are for removing it or at least for a major think through of the current system
07:05:04TiMiD[FD]wow the c200's up button is also used for menu
07:09:10TiMiD[FD]ok so I'll try to fix that
07:10:03TiMiD[FD]would be nice to have actions only defined as generic for the directions and the quit button, and to leave the rest to the plugin
07:10:47pixelmaTiMiD[FD]: how do you want to fix that?
07:11:09TiMiD[FD]using my brain for the moment
07:11:57pixelmaif you change the keymap in the lib file it could break other plugins, exceptions are not nice etc...
07:12:04TiMiD[FD]yes I know
07:12:28TiMiD[FD]the problem is that they put button_up on the c200 for the menu
07:12:39TiMiD[FD]on the ipod they use the wheel instead
07:13:14TiMiD[FD]there are not so much plugins using the action lib
07:13:41TiMiD[FD]could be an option to swithc back to the button system as before
07:13:59TiMiD[FD]but it's so bothersome to define the same buttons for every target on every plugin
07:14:52pixelmaanyways, I gotta leave. I'd rather see the plugin meved back to per keypad defines (even if it is many lines but you have more control) that's a personal opinion though but me try to get a discussion in the ml going wasn't very successfull (somewhen in fall of last year or so)
07:15:22TiMiD[FD]I'll think about it
07:16:55pixelmaat least you were around now ;)

11:01:37LinusNalso, we have many reports about buffer underrun problems (audio dropouts) on the PP platforms, they seem to be caused by the new disk poweroff code
11:01:47GodEaterNico_P: no, I deliberately made sure music playing was off
11:02:02Nico_Pthen it's a disk problem, not a buffering problem, isn't it?
11:02:11LinusNnot necessarily
11:02:19*GodEater goes to double check
11:02:35LinusNthe buffering is there to handle slow disks, isn't it?
11:02:35Nico_PLinusN: I mean buffering as in buffering.c
11:03:19LinusNbut it might be something else, like starving the pcm code
11:03:36amiconn"new" disk poweroff code?
11:03:49amiconnDisk poweroff was committed months ago, way before MoB
11:04:01GodEater53 seconds to change a theme, with no music playing
11:04:15GodEaterNico_P: the commit we suspect is 15444 isn't it ?
11:04:23*petur gets out his h380

11:06:09GodEaterafter that initial theme change, subsequent ones are done in about 10 seconds (depending on number of bitmaps involved, rockbox default is 3 seconds)
11:07:02GodEaterusage of AA seems to make the dropouts worse
11:07:08GodEaterthough I still get them even without using it

11:10:02amiconnGodEater: On my 2nd Gen, loading iCatcher takes ~3 seconds (which I consider too slow for actual use). iCatcher has ~50 bitmaps
11:10:11amiconnLinusN: No I don't
11:10:31LinusNi guess that's why you don't know about this then
11:10:35LinusN"Ok, I found out that the bug has started from the r15444, which doesn't introduce any change on buffer managing but on disk spinning as far as I understood. In my opinion, MoB isn't the real cause of this bug."
11:10:45jhMikeSNico_P: if yield is used inside a mutex, it should be replaced with priority_yield() (a yucky hack that works for now)
11:11:08amiconnLinusN: That's clearly a buffering issue.
11:11:13LinusNamiconn: probably
11:11:13Nico_PjhMikeS: will try to look into it this evening
11:11:21amiconnWith disk poweroff, spinup takes a little longer than without
11:11:27Nico_Pamiconn: buffering as in buffering.c or as in ata buffering?
11:11:34LinusNas in buffering.c
11:11:37amiconnThe swcodec buffering code doesn't adapt to spinup time
11:12:22amiconn...unlike the hwcodec buffering code, which does this for years. One point I complained about numerous times
11:12:48Nico_Pamiconn: I'd love directions as to where to look int the HWCODEC code
11:12:56Nico_Por I'd love patches even more :)
11:13:03*Nico_P really has to go now
11:13:51amiconnmpeg.c handles this stuff for hwcodec
11:14:12LinusNNico_P: see recalculate_watermark() in firmware/mpeg.c
11:14:40GodEatersurely the code in buffering.c isn't used when switching a theme though ?
11:15:19LinusNGodEater: that could be an issue of two threads using the disk simultaneously
11:15:28LinusNi.e a locking issue
11:15:40GodEaterbut if I see the issue whilst NOT playing music - what thread is also accessing the disc ?

12:12:39Bagderbasically, all servers should be busy until all builds are done

I only had the chance to read the diffs now (because I don't have the target with me) but I'm guessing that "flame moving", "flame type" and simply exiting the plugin still won't work on C_200. And even if it does, having to use the volume buttons for increasing/decreasing the flames is awkward because it force me to twohanded operation and the controls were working ine before :(

14:13:01LloreanLess code hardly matters if it makes it less usable too, especially with plugins

14:13:41pixelmaconfusing and easily to break controls, being afraid of breaking other plugins (invisble connections), being pleased with inferior controls
14:13:48pondlifeTiMiD[FD]: The most important thing is that the UI is entirely unchanged.
14:13:52TiMiD[FD]the problem with the fire plugin doesn't lie in the action api anyway
14:14:51Lloreanpixelma: I do think that making one plugin's controls dependent upon another is a very, very bad thing.
14:15:28 Quit idnar (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
14:15:50TiMiD[FD]well if the only action defined were directions and quit it would be a good thing
14:16:13LloreanNot necessarily
14:16:23LloreanSince wheels exist to cloud things up.
14:16:30TiMiD[FD]less time spent on developping a plugin when you don't have the target
14:16:34pixelmaI'm not much of a coder so most things I did was porting plugins to new devices (basically doing the graphics and controls) and already now there are so many half working things due to plugin actions
14:16:37amiconnThe plugin action api was meant as a way to make porting plugins to a new target easier, but due to the nature of many plugin, it has the opposite effect
14:16:43LloreanWhat one could do, instead of 'actions' the way they are now, is define a list of actions based on what they do in the list/menu. So "Up" "Down" "Back" "Stop" "Select" and a few others
14:17:21TiMiD[FD]there are 12 plugins using the action API
14:17:23LloreanSince most buttons, and several combinations of buttons, are always used in the list browser, for application-style plugins you have a context to imagine your actions coming from.
14:17:24amiconnAs soon as you start to chain contexts, there are interdependencies, and if you change things for one target, a dev can easily break the plugin for another target without noticing
14:18:03pixelmaTiMiD[FD]: that doesn't mean that you have suitale controls just some that work somehow and it's very very hard now if someone with the target wants to improve
14:18:22amiconnAnd if the actions are defined per plugin (no chaning) you'll end up with one context per plugin, i.e. essentially the same as not using the actions api at all
14:18:34TiMiD[FD]well so lets rework this from the basis for all plugins
14:18:43TiMiD[FD]there is a fundamentl problem here I agree
14:18:57amiconnBut using it scatters the code path across several files, making it harder to follow than the simple definitions
14:19:26amiconnI think plugin actions (not actions in general) in their current form should be reverted
14:19:31TiMiD[FD]action api is easier when you have to handle buttons combinations
14:19:31LloreanI agree.
14:19:49LloreanAgree with amiconn, in case the internet made that show up on the wrong side of Timid's statement.
14:20:00pixelmayou can guess my opinion ;)
14:20:14LloreanI do think that there's probably a more flexible solution somewhere, but I don't think Plugin Actions is it.
14:20:15TiMiD[FD]ohoh as if I was responsible for that ...
14:20:19amiconnA plugin could still use the actions api, using locally defined contexts, if doing so makes input processing easier
14:20:32TiMiD[FD]mixing buttons and actions ?
14:20:53amiconnDefining a context *for that plugin* within the plugin
14:20:56TiMiD[FD]plugins should do as they did before : define their own actions and eventually use some standard one like quit
14:21:16amiconnThe mixing is the bad thing
14:21:17pixelmaTiMiD[FD]: no but you went on implementing it for the fire plugin (which is why I started the dscussion again) even after the talk earlier today
14:21:25TiMiD[FD]I ddn't talked about mixing
14:21:33amiconnyou did
14:21:40TiMiD[FD]not in mylast statement
14:21:44amiconn"define their own actions and eventually use some standard one like qui"
14:21:49TiMiD[FD]I wasn't thinking about that
14:21:50amiconnThat _is_ mixing
14:21:53TiMiD[FD]onlyusing action api
14:21:56 Join linuxstb_ [0] (n=linuxstb@rockbox/developer/linuxstb)
14:21:57TiMiD[FD]to make it clear
14:22:19TiMiD[FD]define their own actions with the action api
14:22:41amiconnEither use *one single* standard action context, or *one single* private context. Or no actions at all
14:22:51TiMiD[FD]at least to save the hassle of having to code the quit action and handle the case with the remote in every plugin
14:23:42TiMiD[FD]using standards action makes the plugin dependant from external code subject to change and to brek it as you stated
14:23:45linuxstb_TiMiD[FD]: Not all combinations of plugins/targets have a quit action - if there are not enough buttons, quit is a menu option.
14:24:00TiMiD[FD]a lot still have one
14:24:15LloreanThat doesn't mean they all do.
14:24:23LloreanAnd that doesn't mean that one button is the best quit button for all plugins.
14:24:37TiMiD[FD]for most of them it is
14:24:50linuxstb_That's the problem - "most"...
14:24:56 Join tchan1 [0] (
14:24:59TiMiD[FD]in the other case nothing prevents the developper from not using the standard action
14:25:15LloreanThen they have to mix again.
14:25:22LloreanOr not use actions.
14:25:28LloreanOr rather, not use plugin actions.
14:25:30TiMiD[FD]no they define their own actions ...
14:25:39LloreanWhich is mixing.
14:25:40TiMiD[FD]it's the same as defining keys
14:25:48LloreanYes, in which case why not just do it?
14:26:10LloreanYou could very easily write a "standard" keymap for most targets, that people could copy and paste into their plugin, then edit.
14:26:14TiMiD[FD]less switch statement when checking for buttons, less ifdefs
14:26:41LloreanWith this, they could be sure in advance there were no conflicts, unless they introduced them by hand, and it could have sane defaults for up/down left/right and cancel.
14:27:06TiMiD[FD]no conflict by using the action api either
14:27:07LloreanAnd since it's hard coded per plugin, there's no concern about later changes breaking the plugin's keymap
14:27:24TiMiD[FD]if every plugin defines its own contexts
14:27:57TiMiD[FD]used like that no drawbacks
14:28:01LloreanThat's not the Plugin Action system anymore then.
14:28:08LloreanThat's simply using the normal action system, within plugins
14:28:08 Quit cool_walking_ (Remote closed the connection)
14:28:44pixelmawhat should that be good for?
14:28:56TiMiD[FD]easier to code
14:29:11TiMiD[FD]and to maintain
14:29:12LloreanYou still have to define a full context for each plugin.
14:29:22LloreanWhich means a full keymap for all targets.
14:29:24pixelmain another file?
14:29:26TiMiD[FD]same as before
14:29:55LloreanSo why exactly is that any different from including the keymap *in* the plugin?
14:30:10TiMiD[FD]but it's somehow easier to handle buttons with the action plugin in most cases
14:30:29TiMiD[FD]that way it would be included in the plugin
14:30:31Llorean"action plugin"?
14:30:50LloreanWhat is "the action plugin"?
14:30:59linuxstb_Llorean: I assume TiMiD[FD] means "the action API"
14:31:06TiMiD[FD]let me read my sentence again
14:31:18LloreanAh, I wasn't sure if he meant plugin actions again.
14:31:27TiMiD[FD]yep that's what I meant
14:31:45TiMiD[FD]action API
14:32:01LloreanYes, but the topic here is that Plugin Actions should be removed
14:32:05Lloreanthat's what we've been saying ALL along.
14:32:11TiMiD[FD]ah I'm fine with that
14:32:12LloreanNot that the action API should be removed
14:32:37LloreanThe point was that each plugin should have its keys not be dependent on other plugins.
14:32:41linuxstb_Llorean: Yes, that's what TiMiD[FD] has been saying as well... (IIUC)
14:32:56TiMiD[FD]couldn't agree more on that
14:33:16LloreanThen why is he adapting plugins to plugin actions?
14:33:28TiMiD[FD]oh to the action API
14:34:28TiMiD[FD]actually when I used the plugins predefined actions, I didn't knew there were targets on which the keymaps for the different overlapped
14:34:39TiMiD[FD]*different context*
14:34:48***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
14:34:50LloreanThat's why different contexts exist...
14:35:46TiMiD[FD]on my h140 directions and actions doesn' overlap and that's the only target on which I'm able to test reliably
14:36:00LloreanYou have sims.
14:36:34LloreanNot to mention the plugin actions file itself.
14:36:43TiMiD[FD]so anyway lets define per-plugin actions instead of using the global ones
14:36:58TiMiD[FD]I'll take care of that tomorrow if there is no objection ?
14:37:06Zagorno, let's do away with actions in plugins
14:37:16LloreanZagor: I think actions is okay.
14:37:24linuxstb_TiMiD[FD]: Probably best to post a patch first - I don't think we're all understanding each other...
14:37:29LloreanI mean, that's practically what the huge #define block at the beginning of plugins is anyway.
14:37:45linuxstb_TiMiD[FD]: But IIUC, I agree... ;)
14:37:49LloreanZagor: I mean, actions within a plugin, where they're all defined within that plugin, is pretty safe.
14:37:57LloreanTiMiD[FD]: I do too if we're all understanding now.
14:38:23ZagorLlorean: sure you can add lots of #defines at the top of every plugin. but what does it really accomplish?
14:39:14LloreanZagor: The same thing as hand coding keymaps per plugin, which is also a huge block of defines?
14:39:44TiMiD[FD]excepted that the action API is more powerful to express a keymap
14:40:11ZagorI'd use the words "less transparent"
14:40:11pixelmathe sims don't simulate everything though, e.g. you can use button combo with every buttons and not see the restriction that are there for the Iaudios an H100 (IIRC)
14:40:26 Quit tchan (Connection timed out)
14:40:38TiMiD[FD]pixelma: yes and still no remote buttons for the irivers for example ...
14:40:39linuxstb_pixelma: But that's the same problem with the old-style button #defines...
14:41:05LloreanI'd rather just see a KEYMAP file that's a huge block of defines for every target and valid key combination. The enterprising plugin author can then paste it, add names for all the defines he wants to use, cut out the remaining lines, and go.
14:41:09pixelmayes, it was just an addition to the "you have sims" statement ;)
14:42:05LloreanI find the old defines more readable anyway, since I at least tend to have a more clear idea what's going on in some cases.
14:42:26TiMiD[FD]depends of the cases
14:42:31pixelmaLlorean: yes, that's also what I was thinking
14:42:47TiMiD[FD]in somecases it can become tricky

14:45:04TiMiD[FD]OK so I'll patch the plugins already converted to the action API
14:45:25amiconnThere are many button combo constraints on various targets, both electrically and mechanically
14:45:43LloreanThat's why a list of them somewhere would be good.

14:49:27pixelmano extra buttons either around the wheel or above
14:49:32LloreanIf I recall, someone mentioned that they *can* press Play/Menu at the same time. I personally think it's a bad idea (straining the wheel, surely) but I seem to recall it being tried in some odd unsupported build or whatnot.

I'm not talking of precipitating commits of the patches I'm talking about an omission in a file that *maybe* made for worse battery efficiency (relative) on the h10_5gb target than the 20gb got.

19:57:42l00kpI notice that rockbox has not been developed for the ipod 160gb. Do you expect support for it in the next few years, or is this a model that can't be developed for.
19:58:21LambdaCalculus37l00kp: We'll probably have support for the iPod Classic when Duke Nukem Forever comes out.
19:58:27Horschtnext week?
19:58:45l00kpWhat about the 160GB?
19:58:58Horschtthat IS the classic, l00kp
19:59:05l00kpoh. my bad
19:59:10PaulPositionl00kp, like every target : it can't be done ... until it can be done. Usually happens all of a sudden, but it might be long before 'all of a sudden' happens.
19:59:11amiconnIf people just keep asking, no new model will ever be supported. It requires someone with that model and a clue to work on it
19:59:38amiconn(preferably more than one such person per model, depending on how hard the port will be)
20:00:04Horschtwhat worries me more than ipod classic support is battery life on the current ipod video port :)

20:00:27amiconnThe port to the classic, or 2nd/3rd Gen nano will be hard ones due to the encryption

20:51:34BigBambiamiconn: Even with a timeout?
20:51:49amiconnThat's not Ondio specific. If the first click takes you to another screen, the second click will never reach the first screen

20:52:13BigBambiWell, I guess it isn't possible
20:52:37BigBambiI was thinking of after first press waiting x time to see if there were a second press
20:52:51pixelmahe means that it should wait if the user presses a second time and only if not go to the preset list
20:52:57amiconnThen nothing would happen after the first click for a while... very confusing
20:53:08BigBambiNot if it were short enough

21:08:55Domonokyyes, so for the lcd we could use the spi on the uext connector..
21:09:51Domonokybuttons are just a resistor network, which you can read with a adc, ie different voltages for different buttons..
21:09:58Casainhoand since the audio codec also works with SPI, we could choose SPI for both :-)
21:10:31Casainholook, in future, can you please use the forum and not put questions on TWiki page?
21:10:36amiconnSPI for a colour lcd would be nasty
21:10:40DomonokyCasainho: SPI has cs signals, and only one cs is on the uext..
21:10:50 Quit styleism ()
21:11:23Domonokybetter use twi for the dac, and we need something for the i2s of the dac

21:12:11PaulPositionDang, posted my results to Buschel five minutes after he left the forum. lol
21:12:28Domonokyamiconn: whats normally used to interface color lcds ?
21:12:39amiconnSomething parallel
21:13:00amiconnSPI is quite slow for 2-bit greyscale already
21:13:47Domonokythis nokia lcd only has spi, but the spi interface can run up to 6 Mhz..
21:14:24amiconnWhat resolution and bit depth does that lcd have?
21:14:34Domonokyis there a hardware interface for i2s on our targets, or do we do this with software ?
21:14:58Domonokylcd is 132x132x12
21:15:15amiconn12 bit only? Kinda half-baked lcd...
21:15:28Domonokybut its cheap :-)
21:15:31amiconn(but what you'd expect from nokia...) </rant>
21:16:08Domonokythe lcd itself is not from nokia, its used in nokia phones, thats why they are so cheap..
21:16:48CasainhoDomonoky: can't we take another CS form other extension port?
21:17:51amiconnUnder ideal conditions (i.e. running the SPI at full 6MHz, which might be tricky), you'll get ~28fps full screen *for plain lcd_update*. Forget mpegplayer then
21:18:53Domonokydoesnt sound good...
21:19:53DomonokyCasainho: i2s is aviable in the mcu of the devboard, but i dont know on which pins it is, (too lazy to check all those pdfs ) :-)
21:20:26CasainhoDomonoky: have you experince in draw schematics?

21:23:30DomonokyCasainho: yes, just try to make first version.. we can help out, if you have something..
21:23:34amiconnUmm, a few extra fps are lost due to the 9th bit sent along every data byte
21:23:59CasainhoI will try to use SPI for both, for to not have to write 2 diferent drivers :-)
21:24:41Casainhoamiconn: FPS are not important! this hardware will not be for video, just for an audio player, at max to show album art.
21:24:43DomonokyCasainho: this could be difficult, if they have different SPI formats, SPI is very flexible.. :-)
21:25:12Casainhookok... so I will chose maybe SPI for one and I2C for the other
21:25:47Domonokyyou need SPI or TWI *and* i2s for the dac
21:26:29amiconnFast updates are still rather useful, as they save cpu time and hence power for other stuff like decoding audio

21:41:30testdasihello, I'm trying to compile rockbox (again) and installing Cygwin. Last time I remember there is a cache thing that I installed on Cygwin to make compiling Rockbox faster (between attempts). Now I completely forgot what it is so I would greatly appreciate if someone can tell me. I remember that I got the information from here.
21:42:39bertrikit's called ccache

21:45:27pixelmaI thought that would have a negative effect in cygwin (slowing down instead of the speedup it gives in linux)?
21:45:35amiconnccache doesn't speed up compilation on cygwin, it even has the opposite effect (might depend a bit on disk speed though)
21:45:57stripwaxrasher - that would be better. is that rename planned?
21:46:07amiconnFor me, compiling with ccache on cygwin is ~20% slower than without
21:46:53amiconn(unlike on linux, where speed easily doubles if there aren't many changed source files)

22:08:29Zagorgood idea
22:09:28pixelmaand also check why one can't /quit in the webclient (at least I couldn't 5 hours ago, ignore if it is already fixed)?
22:10:00ZagorI fixed that a few minutes after you said it. it simply wasn't in the list of allowed irc commands.

23:45:02saratogaalmost the entire mdct is in ASM
23:45:26saratogai bet its waaaaay faster then what WMA and FAAD are using
23:45:58preglowhopefully yes
23:46:06amiconnIt might be faster, but I doubt it will be much faster
23:46:11preglowi don't think so either :/
23:46:16saratogawhys that?
23:46:40preglowwell, they claim 20-30% total speedup, and there's a lot of other asm code
23:46:46preglowso it can't have yielded much
23:46:47amiconnThe limiting factor for mdct on arm seems to be the slow multiplier

23:47:11saratogatrue but theres a lot of flexibiliity in how many multiplies you actually do in an FFT/MDCT
23:47:17amiconnI wonder what those 20..30% are measured on. arm7? arm9? other arm?
23:47:25saratogai suspect that some codecs do a lot more then what they need

23:47:55XavierGramiconn: 2nd test came even slower at 599.64% and 234.02s decoding time

23:48:17saratogai really need to profile WMA, Ogg and FAAD, they each have completely different MDCT algorithms, would be neat to see which is fastest on ARM7
23:48:18stripwaxI'm still trying to work out how to change the code to make it work with the rockbox-modified version of tremor..

23:49:52stripwaxand the makefile is a windows ce make job
