#rockbox log for 2008-02-08

00:00:19gevaertslinuxstb_: yes, but probably overkill. I guess bootloader.bin is the app that runs on the e200r ?
00:01:30linuxstb_gevaerts: There are many bootloader.bin files...
00:02:05star_jasminehi.... I"m having a small problem creating a voice in cygwin. I can create it with the encoding defaults with speex but if I change the quality to 10 for bothq and c, it won't work. can anyone help?
00:02:07gevaertslinuxstb_: I mean the one referenced on http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/SansaE200RInstallation

00:03:05JdGordon|wamiconn: is merging the way to go though? I assume neither engine is really in great shape anyway... so why not start a unified engine from scratch doing exactly what we want from it and getting it right the first time? instead of fixing sw to handle hw (or vice verca)
00:03:18linuxstb_Yes. You compile that by selecting target 51, then I for install when you configure. The source is bootloader/main-e200r-installer.c
00:04:01preglowJdGordon|w: hwcodec is quite stable, afaik
00:04:30linuxstb_I would imagine it's extremely stable - as I can't ever remember a commit to it...
00:04:47linuxstb_(apart from id3 parser bugs)
00:04:51preglowJdGordon|w: how do we get it right, though? we'll still have to code the same features we have today
00:05:02preglowmy proposition is let's just pay jhMikeS to doit :)
00:05:09linuxstb_Or not ;) Get rid of pesky things like crossfade...
00:05:45JdGordon|wnagging jhMikeS to do it sounds like a workable solution :p

00:46:21amiconnpreglow, JdGordon: The hwcodec playback engine is very stable, but also rather limited
00:47:05amiconnIn its current form it would not allow integraiting MoB at all - as it does the bitswap in-place, across all loaded data
00:47:52Nico_Pamiconn: would it be hard to add the bitswap to buffering.c?
00:48:19amiconnNo, but I don't think this would be the right way
00:48:30linuxstbIs it worthwhile trying to merge them?
00:49:07amiconnDoing the bitswap in-place has the disadvantage that we can only play data that can be played as-is, i.e. mp2/mp3 and plain pcm wav/aiff
00:49:33amiconnIt would not allow to decode e.g. adpcm (unless we do it at buffering time, which would be a waste
00:50:23 Quit XavierGr (Nick collision from services.)
00:50:27amiconnSo I think we need the equivalent of a "codec" and the "pcm buffer"
00:50:28preglowyeah, hwcodec seems very hard coded

00:52:02 Join BigBambi [0] (n=alex@rockbox/staff/BigBambi)
00:52:03amiconnBut the "pcm" buffer should be as small as possible (because of the little ram). I think this rules out doing the "codec" work in a thread
00:53:14amiconnIt has to happen in the audio callback isr. But that means it has to be done in small chunks - and even then it is not clear whether this will be smooth enough to not disturb other tasks
00:54:27amiconnThe "codec" task would just be the bitswap for mp2/mp3 and pcm, but more than that for e.g. adpcm
00:55:33amiconnWe will also need a state machine handling the MAS setup. And mpeg audio <-> pcm transitions cannot be gapless.
00:55:48amiconnI'm not sure whether playback.c needs to be aware of that fact
00:57:00*Nico_P has been pondering the use of a state machine approach in playback.c
00:57:40pregloweverything i've seen thus far seems to suggest that's the way to go
00:57:44amiconnWell, for handling the MAS, a state machine makes very much sense. Depending on the target, there need to be 2, 3 or 5 states
00:58:14preglowit also makes for very easily maintainable threading code
00:58:43amiconn0: dsp disabled, only audiocodec active (for idle mode with voice disabled, or the radio without prerecording)
00:58:53amiconn1: mpeg audio playback
00:59:20amiconn2: pcm playback (all MAS' except 3507D (Player))
00:59:34amiconn3: mpeg audio recording (3587 only)
00:59:43amiconn4: pcm recording (3587 only)

01:50:50BigMacBecause you need to turn it on to charge
01:50:56BigMacand I can't charge it
01:51:02markunBigMac: you don't need to turn it on
01:51:18BigMacWell I have it plugged in
01:51:19markunjust plug in either the charger or a USB cable
01:51:24BigMacand it doesn't kick over
01:51:35markunhow long did you leave it connected?
01:51:50BigMacIts been like 5 minutes just sitting
01:51:51BigMacthere
01:52:07markun5 minutes is not very long for a completely drained battery
01:52:14markundo you have the batter switch to on?
01:52:17markunbattery
01:52:28BigMacthis is a few month old build, don't know if anything has changed in the boot code, but I can't update it either way
01:52:36BigMacyes it is on
01:52:45BigMacand I didn't know it was charging right now
01:53:02BigMacit just has a blank screen
01:53:13markunyes, even from USB it charges, but never shows the charge icon that way.
01:53:35markunmaybe it doesn't from the charger either if the battery is too empty
01:53:54markunwhich ways did you mean by "either way"?
01:53:56BigMacwait so even though rockbox never loaded
01:54:00BigMacand it never turned on
01:54:05BigMacand I can't access the drive
01:54:08BigMacit is charging?
01:54:24markunif it's off and you connect the charger it should charge
01:54:34BigMacit doesn't
01:54:39markunhow can you tell?
01:54:53markunjust leave it for an hour and try to turn it on again
01:54:53BigMacBecause I can leave it for an hour
01:54:57markunok
01:55:02BigMacand still not be able to turn it on
01:55:14BigMacI have left it for an hour
01:55:26BigMacI left it while I got my haircut
01:55:30BigMacbut not charging
01:55:33markunLast time I asked you it was just 5 minutes. I must have misunderstood.
01:55:48BigMacYes, thi instance is
01:55:58BigMacI unplugged it to see if it would turn on
01:56:05BigMacbut it didn't
01:56:06markunmaybe reset the player with the battery switch and try to charge again
01:56:12markunI don't know what else you could try.
01:56:45BigMacYah, tried that last night too
01:56:55BigMacthanks guy, anyone else got any ideas

05:43:41JdGordonthey are in the config file
05:44:19JdGordon"quickscreen spot:config name" where spot is left, right top or bottom and config name is the config string of the option you want to put there
05:44:37JdGordone.g. "quickscreen bottom:shuffle"
05:45:09psycho_maniacwow you can tell i have this patched. seems to run slow when i enter quickscreen and change "show files"
05:45:30midgeyare there any settings in svn that are "hidden" as in they can only be changed by editing the cfg file
05:45:34JdGordonyeah, that needs fixing
05:45:39psycho_maniacalso i can only change it to either "supported" or "all"

05:48:04midgeyregarding the debate about gather runtime etc from earlier, i think thats a good candidate for being hidden.
05:48:21midgeyset it to on by default and it could be changed by editing the config
05:48:22JdGordonwe all agree hiden settings suck though

09:56:25linuxstbIsn't that going to require a large cache? i.e. N tracks * MAX_PATH, plus whatever the data is?
09:57:12pondlifeMaybe, perhapas it should only do it using the database-in-RAM?
09:57:31pondlifeOr store it on buffer in the track header?

10:46:59gevaertslinuxstb: not yet. I played a bit with the e200r tools and got code to run on the device (I can manipulate the button lights), but I couldn't get flash access yet. I'll spend more time on it tonight

11:03:01GodEaterI'm still getting it without fail though

11:04:03GodEaterI've run it on XP and linux
11:04:32GodEatergevaerts: how does the usb storage stuff send back the number of cylinders ?
11:04:40GodEaterI've noticed it's still going back to the OS wrong
11:06:20gevaertsGodEater: It gets the total number of sectors directly from the disk (using the ata IDENTIFY data), and sends that back. The ata spec specifies sectors as 512 bytes.
11:06:48***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
11:06:54gevaertsOn larger-sector systems we have to translate this number, but I don't know how to find the sector size to use.

11:23:01GodEaterthat pastebin shows the way the disk is identified by fdisk for three different sector sizes given over USB by Rockbox, and the original Apple firmware
11:24:09AdRockI haven't installed the full rockbox build yet. Had an old version, deleted it, reset the plater and now can't get the player to load shit. Not even the factory firmware. Did a full format of the player to see if it would wipe everything clean(done it be4-loaded orig. sansa firmware)but now I fon't get squat
11:24:46AdRocki got it plugged in. It comes up on my pc as a fat32 disk

12:24:23Soul-Burnfeature request: when a directory is empty in the file manager, it should show it somehow, otherwise you get an empty screen which is not intuitive, and scary the first time
12:25:05ZagorLinusN: isn't there some way to tell from the disk that it's a 2048 model?
12:25:41LinusNZagor: the thing is that the disk is a 1024-byte model, it's apple's idea to make the block size 2048 bytes
12:25:50pixelmahcs: in these folders, I also have the problem that resume will start at the beginning of the next track not at the resume point. And I was testing this a while ago and found resume started misbehaving with r16105 (which surprised me too) - *but* this was before I noticed it's only certain folders for me and I'm not so sure anymore if it's the same thing
12:25:54LinusNand i believe it does that even if the disk is a 512-byte model
12:26:04Zagorok
12:26:38AdRockI tried saving the file/link and it only comes up as the option to save link as. I tried saving it and i get nothing.
12:26:49pixelmahcs: what do you mean with the button definitions?
12:26:51LinusNi don't know if all 5.5G models use a 2048-byte block size
12:27:04GodEaterLinusN: do we know if any other RB targets use the same exact drive model ?
12:27:28LinusNi don't know of any
12:27:32*LinusN goes to lunch
12:27:47GodEaterthen we could base our block size check on the drive model (nasty nasty hack)
12:27:50AdRockman, my player is supremely fucked
12:27:52GodEaterbut I can't think of another way to do it
12:28:04BagderAdRock: not really
12:28:04hcspixelma: never mind, was confusion on my part
12:29:03AdRockwell, i got the sansa.fmt file into the e: partition. E: screen reads-Version-txt file 1kb. sansa.fmt fmt file 0kb.
12:29:07 Join kugel [0] (n=kugel@unaffiliated/kugel)
12:29:33gevaertsAdRock: OK. Now choose "safe remove", and unplug the sansa
12:30:08AdRockscreen reads- formatting
12:30:15gevaertsWe could of course read the fat boot sector, but that's not really clean
12:30:33gevaertsAdRock: OK. that's what it should do
12:31:38gevaertsAdRock: Now just wait until it resets itself
12:31:41AdRockthe only reason this started on me is that everytime i used rockbox's database on my player, it would go extremely slow. Eg. wouldn't load files sometimes, would take hours to build a database for roughly 1k mp3 files, wouldn't seek for different songs, etc.
12:32:06BagderAdRock: I would say that you should've tried a scandisk as step 1
12:32:42Bagderbut the good news is now you don't have to ;-)
12:32:48AdRockEven after I removed rockbox and did I full re-install of the software it would act up. Everything works perfectly within rockbox, except for the database
12:33:39AdRockWell, good shit. The orig. firmware is up and running finally with the correct storage amount. Whew. was worried for quite a bit
12:34:06gevaertsAdRock: great!
12:34:22Soul-BurnAdRock, did you load it to ram?
12:35:50AdRockThanks for all the help you guys. Now, as far as putting r/box back on, if the database still loads super slow or the player plays a song, even after i seek forward and it takes more that a min. or two, to get to the next track, what might the problem be?
12:38:58AdRockRockbox back up and running, database build taking 4ever again though. Only reading 1 file per 2 min or so. :(
12:38:59gevaertsAdRock: I'd say it is very possible that your problems were caused by a corrupted filesystem in the first place, so I don't think it makes much sense to speculate on other causes before ruling that out (note that I know nothing about how rockbox handles its filesystem and database)
12:39:12gevaertsAdRock: OK. So I was wrong...
12:40:00AdRockno worries.
12:41:08AdRockShit. Well, now the player isn't reading the micro sd drive, even though I have a 2gb card in it.
12:42:22AdRocktrying 1gb card.......damn. still coming up please insert disk into drive g: f: is fine (sansa player)
12:44:49amiconnLinusN: All G5.5s (i.e. both the 30GB and the 80GB model) uses 2048-byte usb block size

12:45:05amiconnThe plain G5, however, uses 512 byte
12:45:47gevaertsamiconn: So only the G5.5 uses 2048 bytes ? Then it's probably easiest to just test for that. What's the correct #define to test for ?
12:46:36AdRockWell, the sansa firmware is up and running without a problem. same with rockbox, but within both, no recognization of the micro sd slot......??
12:48:37AdRocknothing eh???
12:49:01pixelmaSoul-Burn: for your interest - you can't load the database to RAM on the Sansas

13:12:14kugelthe option is there
13:12:22AdRockbe4 i was having problems w/my sansa, it was reading the regular microsd cards, up until i had to re-format the player, go into recovery mode and re-install the factory firmware
13:13:07kugelpixelma: on c200 as well
13:13:42pixelmakugel: with an SVN build? If I read correctly that option is only defined when you have both dircache and database, and dircache is not defined in SVN. It's definitely not there on my c200
13:14:02kugelthen the manual is wrong
13:14:25kugelhowever, I remember the option on the e200
13:14:29pixelmathat wouldn't surprise me... :\
13:15:14amiconnDircache is not enabled in svn for both c200 and e200
13:15:37amiconnThis is because it cannot handle multivolume and hotswap
13:15:53amiconnIt was enabled before multivolume support
13:17:11pixelmakugel: unfortunately the manual doesn't update itself with changes in the code...

14:39:17pondlifeCheap place, cheap flights, good beer, friendly police

15:13:49Zagora tricky thing is we don't really know who's coming until after we decice on location...
15:15:20soapThe trick would be to find one who will provide said service as a service, for a fee, not commission. Somebody amongst all the potential attendees is bound to be only one or two degrees separated from an agent who will crunch the numbers for a fee.

15:29:37pondlifeI can only imagine it being useful if you were on some kind of bail
15:29:42kugelBut that doesn't change anything. It's still a bunch of data, which is very personal, and I can't control their way through the US
15:29:44GodEaterthe only objection I have about travelling to the US is about how unfriendly the immigration people are
15:29:51GodEateronce you're through that though it's fun^2

16:01:22XavierGrprobably it didn't get built
16:01:31Slasheriah, indeed

16:02:38Slasheriput that to the h100 section too
16:03:21XavierGryeah just saw that thanks
16:03:35SlasheriXavierGr: and for the flashing plugins, remove those detect_valid_bootloader -calls

16:09:16XavierGrSlasheri: so you think that if flashing rombox.iriver succeeds it will be safe to try rockbox.iriver?
16:09:54Slasheriyep, actually it's safe to try both of them. but a little better in that order
16:10:37Slasheriflashing either of those isn't fatal if it fails

16:12:13Slasheriand after that you could flashing the bootloader.iriver too (just make sure to rename the correct rockbox.iriver, from the bootloader folder!)
16:12:20Slasheri+try
16:14:29XavierGrSlasheri: Question: Ok rombox.iriver flashes the firmware to rom, rockbox.iriver flashes the firmware to flash what's the bootloader.iriver for?
16:15:27SlasheriXavierGr: rombox.iriver flashes ROM image of the firmware to flash (runs from ROM). rockbox.iriver flashes RAM image of the rockbox to ROM (runs from RAM). And bootloader.iriver is the bootloader
16:16:29XavierGrSlasheri: ah so flashing rombox.iriver or rockbox.iriver won't enable the your flash bootloader.
16:16:31 Quit desowin ()
16:16:41SlasheriXavierGr: no
16:17:03SlasheriXavierGr: but correct bootloader (as you have it) detects those images and loads rockbox from flash

16:27:33SlasheriXavierGr: for rockbox/rombox, no
16:27:38Slasherilet that be there
16:27:49Slasherithe .iriver file contains a very simple checksum that can be verified

16:29:14SlasheriXavierGr: hmm, then there is something wrong. What about the rockbox.iriver file?
16:29:22XavierGrlet me try that too

16:32:50XavierGramiconn: I think yes

16:34:55amiconnThe fat driver can't know the size until a partition is mounted

16:35:42Slasheriamiconn: yep, audio buffer is used
16:35:59XavierGrSlasheri: maybe it has to do with commented out detect_valid_bootloader?

16:36:58amiconnSlasheri: Have a look at what rockbox_flash does. It also checks the whole file before starting to flash
16:37:08Slasheriamiconn: we check that also
16:37:21amiconnBut it doesn't need to stop playback in order to do so, as it only uses the plugin buffer
16:37:27Slasheriand why take any risks if we have the audio buffer
16:37:47Slasheriwell, we *definately* want to stop playback before flashing anything..
16:38:02amiconnIt reads & flashes in 4KB chunks iirc, while the whole image to flash may be up to 228KB (232KB on Player)
16:38:09Slasheriand make sure no other thread gets cpu time while flashing is in progress
16:38:46amiconn(and in firmware_flash, it even flashes the whole 256KB flash chip that way)
16:38:58Slasherithat sounds extremely risky

16:40:33asdrubalis that still the case, and should I cancel my order?
16:40:44amiconnI know about one single brick, but this was due to the flash chip itself failing

16:46:56asdrubalAre All new Sansa C2xx version 2 ?
16:47:24amiconnSlasheri: Well, it checks the whole file before it starts flashing. That design is from before plugins got access to the main buffer btw, but in fact I don't think it's that big a risk
16:47:45LambdaCalculus37asdrubal: Not EVERY single one. You may get a very lucky break and get a v1. But that's a very rare chance now.
16:47:52oboasdrubal: I don't think anyone knows yet which Part numbers are v1 or v2
16:48:04amiconnAll older PC mainboard flash tools which run in dos mode from floppy load & flash in chunks - from a floppy disk, which is much less reliable than a hard disk
16:48:15LambdaCalculus37asdrubal: Are you buying online or in a store?

16:49:00LambdaCalculus37asdrubal: Do you have a Radio Shack near you instead? They tend to have v1's left over.
16:49:08asdrubalLambdaCalculus37, yeah
16:49:22LambdaCalculus37If the package says anything about Audible support, put it back on the shelf.

16:49:46LambdaCalculus37asdrubal: You can cancel it as long as it's not shipped.
16:50:06asdrubalLambdaCalculus37, will rockbox ever support these v2 monsters?
16:50:12LambdaCalculus37But if you go to a store and buy one, look to see if the package mentions Audible support. That's a sure sign it's a v2.
16:50:21asdrubalLambdaCalculus37, K, thanks
16:50:33LambdaCalculus37asdrubal: We have no idea when anything will ever be supported.

16:51:08Slasheriamiconn: yep, indeed
16:51:33Slasheriamiconn: but i understand the reason why it was implemented that way if we couldn't access audio buffer at that point
16:51:52asdrubalLambdaCalculus37, do you know if the V1s support SDHC cards?
16:51:55amiconnWell, maybe we should unify the flashing plugins somewhat
16:52:28amiconnThey could use the audio buffer. I'd want some kind of progress display though
16:52:31LambdaCalculus37asdrubal: They do, but the Sansa firmware itself doesn't.
16:52:36Slasheriamiconn: maybe, but i also like the idea about separate, well tested plugins for each target
16:52:58asdrubalLambdaCalculus37, rockbox firmware supports the 8GB microsds?
16:53:03asdrubalsweet
16:53:04Slasheriin iriver plugin, there is a progress display during non-critical parts

17:36:17Slasherigreat, well.. now it would be good time to make a new release of H100 bootloaders and support both model :)

17:39:34XavierGrhow do I have to do it?
17:39:49SlasheriXavierGr: if you want, i can do that
17:40:16Slasheriand provide a crc-checksummed bootloader for you to test :)
17:40:39XavierGrof course if you can and you are not bored please do it, as I don't have any clue how to enable it :P

17:48:01BigBambiSlasheri: I've just been reading the logs - did you see my note on the wiki page about bootloader 7 pre3 - I can't turn on my H140 with the remote using it
17:48:16BigBambiSo that needs to be looked at before a new release :)
17:48:33SlasheriBigBambi: hmm, didn't see that. does anything happen when you turn on power with remote?
17:48:39Slasherii would like to fix that :)
17:49:14BigBambiCool :)
17:49:16XavierGrBigBambi: what type of remote?
17:49:36XavierGrI just tested my flashed H140 and it turns on with the normal H100 lcd remote

17:51:14BigBambiI remember talking to LinusN at the time and he thought something like (I am guessing) that it checked the buttons too quickly and a very short wait would fix it
17:51:39SlasheriBigBambi: indeed. I will add a slight delay and ask you to try again :)
17:52:14BigBambiHappy too (I want to flash my H140 but without being able to turn it on with the remote I can't)

18:08:37LambdaCalculus37asdrubal: Rockbox is meant for audio playback, first and foremost.
18:09:55star_jasminejust a note... the key click works well for the ipods especially. I just discovered it was there yesterday when installing a new build.
18:10:14Horschtkeyclick?
18:10:43Horschtonoez
18:10:45star_jasmineyeah its under system in settings, I think
18:10:58Horschtso it's a setting. phew
18:11:25star_jasminewith different volumes, and with the option to repeat or not. very nice for the wheel
18:11:28rashergevaerts: You may want to modify the bootloaders as well to no longer boot OF on USB (probably just as a TODO at this point, but it should be done at some point)
18:11:30star_jasmineyes
18:12:19rashergevaerts: testing your latest patch now
18:12:37RodGoone more question, can i install ZSNES roms to my rockbox ipod?
18:13:03gevaertsrasher: once it works... Actually right now the bootloader doesn't even build for sansa.
18:13:30LambdaCalculus37RodGo: No.
18:13:40RodGothen what kind of roms?
18:13:58 Quit saratoga ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
18:14:05LambdaCalculus37RodGo: Just Game Boy, ZX Spectrum, Chip8, and the Pac-Man ROMs.
18:14:46gevaertsDoes anyone here know about building binaries for upload with e200rpatcher ? I'm trying to build a stripped down version of the c200 bootloader to run from manufacturer mode, and then change that to fix my flash corruption problem.
18:15:01star_jasmineis there a patch for the ipod especially that will bypass the rockbox media player option once a usb cable is inserted? I can make the ipod connect by booting into the original firmware, but wondered if there was a way to just have it detect automatically
18:16:00LambdaCalculus37star_jasmine: We're working on a full USB stack for supported players based on PortalPlayer (iPod, H10, Sansa), so once it's fully complete then you can have a native USB connection from within Rockbox.
18:16:11star_jasmineoh ok
18:16:13star_jasminevery nice
18:16:49LambdaCalculus37star_jasmine: It's a slow process, though. But you'll see when it's ready on the front page of the site.
18:17:36rasherWeird.. the bootloader seems unable to find rockbox.mi4
18:18:13gevaertsrasher: Was that before or after testing usb write support ?

18:37:21gevaertsrasher: what kind of different ?
18:37:49rasherThe filenames weren't messy in the same way, but that may just be due to differnt handling of a corrupt FAT perhaps?

20:46:57saratogai'd rather not list them individually since i dont' know all the defines and we may add more in the future
20:49:41rashersaratoga: Maybe there's a better define to look for - which feature are you after?
20:50:00low_lightsaratoga: I think there's a CPU_PP
20:50:26saratogaso/opt{CPU_PP} will do it?
20:51:10pixelmanot that I know of - the closest there is are "sansa", "ipod" leaves the H10s though... Or you can make one, have a look at the platform files
20:51:28pixelmalow_light: for the manual?

20:53:21pixelmawhat do you need it for?
20:54:21saratogai want to exclude the section about hardware USB controllers on targets that have software USB
20:54:45saratogaperhaps I should just create a HAVE_SOFT_USB define and use that

20:55:29gevaertsI should soon have a 'normally' bricked c250
20:56:05pixelmasaratoga: yes, sounds like a reasonable idea
20:56:34saratogapixelma: my latex is questionable, so let me run this by you
20:56:49saratogai can add a \edef\UseOption{\UseOption,HAVE_SOFT_USB} to each player's tex file
20:57:09saratogathen just \opt{HAVE_SOFT_USB} ?
20:58:19pixelmaor maybe better, if you call that option "HAVE_USBSTACK" it goes along with the features.txt and the idea of parsing that into \UseOptions... now we only need to motivate n1s some more... ;)
20:59:08pixelmasaratoga: yes, sounds alright. Or use \nopt if you want to exclude a certain part
