#rockbox log for 2008-02-24

00:00:29gevaertsbarrywardell_: but I suspect that on a H10 you have to use files.

00:06:26gevaertsjhMikeS: I now have copied 300MB with udelay(1) and no errors

00:15:16amiconnThen data shouldn't be cached. winxp disables caching for removable storage by default

00:20:51amiconnFullspeed works like a charm for me though

00:22:37gevaertsThat's high speed. With full speed back and forth would have been more than 10 minutes for 350 MB
00:23:29*gevaerts uses the irc log timestamps to estimate connection speeds of various devices

00:33:41barrywardell_gevaerts: on windows, my H10 with Rockbox USB appears as a "Hard Disk Drive" in My Computer, but with the OF disk mode it appears under "Devices with removable storage". is it supposed to be that way?
00:34:39 Quit aliask ("ChatZilla 0.9.81 [Firefox]")
00:35:37gevaertsbarrywardell_: The old discussion... I think Hard Disk Drive is correct according to the SCSI spec, since the disk is fixed to the scsi handler, but some people seem to disagree
00:36:25barrywardell_hmmm...ok. I don't think I've seen that with any usb storage before
00:36:37gevaertsbarrywardell_: removable means you need to handle the SCSI commands for removable drives, which makes no sense at all if "removing" means "unplugging the cable"
00:38:05gevaertsAnd furthermore, how do you handle a device with both fixed storage and a card slot, like the sansas ?
00:38:06amiconnThe ipods and the H10 appear as 'removable storage' with their respective OS or diskmode
00:38:22amiconnThe H1x0, H300, archoses etc appear as hard disk drives
00:39:03amiconnTechnically, 'hard disk drive' is correct as gevaerts just explained, but practically 'removable storage' does have advantages at least on windows
00:39:10barrywardell_so by the specs hard drive is the correct way
00:39:30amiconnIt stops windows from cluttering the device with its 'system volume information' folder etc
00:39:42gevaertsbarrywardell_: that's my reading of the specs. But of course these specs predate USB
00:39:49*barrywardell_ thinks practicality is more important than technicalities
00:39:52jhMikeSsansas just mounts as two drives (the card driver shows up always) so why do things any differently?
00:40:15 Quit gregzx ("ChatZilla 0.9.81 [Firefox]")
00:40:33JamPSiamiconn, Is it safe to delete 'system volume information' on ntfs drives?
00:40:40gevaertsjhMikeS: the drive shows, just like your floppy or cd... Anyway I think the disk cluttering argument is pretty strong.
00:41:39jhMikeSI thought removeable storage always showed even when absent
00:42:04amiconnSlight correction regarding archoses - the Ondios appear as 'removable storage' as well
00:42:13gevaertsjhMikeS: yes, except if you pull out the entire drive. Try pulling out your cdrom drive some day ;-)
00:42:14amiconnMakes sense as they have an MMC slot
00:42:40amiconngevaerts: That's actually possible with some laptops...
00:43:14amiconnI mean hot-plugging/unplugging cd-roms - I've seen that on pre-usb laptops
00:43:35***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
00:43:45gevaertsI know, my thinkpad can do that. So if you put a second hard drive in that bay (those exist), is that a removable drive ?
00:44:13amiconnSome PCs handle their internal sata hdds as removable drives
00:45:00gevaertsI think current software and hardware has confused the issue so much that you can't really make a good decision on this
00:45:07 Quit hannesd (Read error: 113 (No route to host))
00:45:08amiconnWindows shows that 'safely remove hardware' icon even for the system disk on those. Of course it will always complain that the drive can't be removed because it's in use
00:46:08gevaertsThey probably show that icon depending on the bus and not on what the device claims itself. Some SATA controllers support hotplugging
00:47:34amiconnI don't think so. A secondary disk actually can be removed this way and unplugged afterwards. And yes, sata was designed with hotplugging in mind
00:48:27gevaertsAnyway, I have now copied two gigabytes back and forth without any data errors. Still lots of ehci_hcd errors in my dmesg output, but that doesn't seem to cause much more than a slight slowdown on read.
00:51:10jhMikeSgevaerts: just because the udelay was there?
00:51:30gevaertsjhMikeS: that seems to make the difference, yes
00:52:03gevaertsI now write at 3.4 MB/s
00:52:51jhMikeSthat just well, odd unless perhaps because it was between the PRG state and the FIFO check

00:54:22gevaertsIt certainly needs explaining. Commenting out code that is explicitly documented as needed to make things work raises some questions...

01:17:52saratogaEvilnick_: yeah whats up
01:18:23Evilnick_saratoga: Just updated to a new build with cabbiev2 as the default theme.
01:18:47Evilnick_So I saved my previous settings, i.e. from a build where it wasn't default.
01:18:53Evilnick_Then deleted the .rockbox folder
01:20:00Evilnick_When I tried to load my config file, the background disappeared and the font turned into grey boxes. I'm guessing that since cabbiev2 is now defined as the default that this is expected behaviour?
01:21:10saratogaEvilnick_: no idea
01:22:09 Quit Zagor ("Client exiting")
01:23:07saratogaactually, if you're using a langauge not supported by the default theme you might get the boxes
01:23:32saratogain which case, you should switch to a font with full unicode support
01:23:40Evilnick_It's just english, so that can't be it
01:24:00rasherThe only language I can think of not supported by the default theme would be Hebrew
01:24:01 Quit Domonoky_ (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
01:24:15Evilnick_I'm trying a comparison of the older build's .cfg file and a brand new one to see if there are any obvious naming changes
01:24:16*rasher would love a nimbus-variant of the cabbiev2 theme
01:25:02saratogawell if anyone wants to change cabbie, its all done through #defines in settings_list.c, so its now quite easy to make adjustments
01:25:33saratoga(which everyone making a new port should do for their device once they're added to the build table)
01:26:12amiconngevaerts: I have some rather odd results for you. I tried highspeed on my mini again
01:26:23Evilnick_saratoga: It's probably a fairly small chance of someone doing exactly the same as me anyway that the effort for that probably isn't worth it in th elong run!
01:27:27gevaertsamiconn: what happened ?
01:27:38amiconnWhen connecting it via my hub, it still doesn't work. But when connecting it directly, it does work. The speeds are also "interesting": ~930KB/s write, ~2.1MB/s read
01:28:18rasherI think cabbiev2 looks so much better using the appropriately sized nimbus font (nimbus-12 on e200). Why was sazanami-wossname picked?
01:28:21amiconnBut the hub itself is 100% okay, as it works for all other devices
01:28:39amiconnmd5sum does match, btw
01:29:00*amiconn checks speeds with apple diskmode
01:30:30jhMikeSthings also are "interesting" when disconnecting a device with "Safely Remove Hardware" vs. just unplugging it. RB doesn't detect the first very well and showing of the USB screen is rather dodgey even though a connection is made.
01:31:19*amiconn wouldn't notice that himself
01:31:44 Quit herrwaldo (Remote closed the connection)
01:32:03gevaertsCurrently showing the USB screen _is_ dodgey. It basically needs to be enumerated before a certain timeout has elapsed. This gets influenced by connection speed, other devices on the bus, hubs,... The rework I'm doing fixes that.
01:32:12 Quit countrymonkey ("CGI:IRC (Ping timeout)")
01:32:18*jhMikeS just tries everything to test things
01:33:06gevaertsI'm not sure what safely remove hardware does exactly. I'll try to find out next week
01:33:22amiconnOF diskmode speed: ~1.6MB/s write, ~2.1MB/s read
01:33:53amiconnI.e. read speed is practically identical, but for writing, rockbox is significantly slower. And there's this hub problem
01:34:00gevaertsDo you have test_disk speed results as well ?
01:34:39gevaertsThe hub problem is probably related to the errors I see in my dmesg output. I want to check them out at work next week with a real usb tracer
01:35:25gevaertsIt's basically impossible to debug usb problems that are not just missing protocol bits using only software

10:03:06linuxstbWhat do you mean by "flash player"?
10:03:52wisp_shi mean is it possible to upload music on ipod not using itunes
10:04:19wisp_shthank you
10:04:28wisp_shand one more moment
10:04:35linuxstbRockbox doesn't need any software on your PC - it just appears as an external hard drive, and will find any music you copy to it.
10:04:45wisp_shdid anybody install rockbox in linux?
10:05:14wisp_shiam not sure that all will be clear with it
10:05:17linuxstbYes, lots of us use Rockbox with Linux
10:05:28wisp_shhow i can do it? via wine?
10:05:41wisp_shor.. i dont know )
10:05:57linuxstbNo need for Wine - the installation tools run in linux natively.

10:19:47bluebrotheryou can't "install" a patch.

10:20:52n1samiconn: deleted that file yesterday
10:20:57bluebrotherBagder: just got an idea ... how about adding a link to rbutil on the download page?
10:21:19wisp_sh<bluebrother> sorry, english is not my native language )
10:21:25bluebrotherand diffs go against the source, not the binary.
10:22:09Learn1s: And now there's some WPS that incorrectly references it?
10:22:28bluebrotherwisp_sh: me neither. I just wanted to make clear that there is a substantial difference between the so-called "patches" (I prefer calling them "diffs", because that's what they are) and binary patches (like MS distributes them)
10:22:52bluebrotherin order to apply a patch you need to be able to compile.
10:23:01n1sLear: I have no idea how all that works but probably something like that
10:24:53wisp_shbluebrother ok ) Ive applied this patch. what is the next step? )
10:25:27bluebrotherwell, build the sources. Then you'll get a zip file which you can extract to the player as you do for the official builds.

10:28:30bluebrotherthe manual tells you how to do a manual install. You need to extract the zip to the root of your player
10:28:53wisp_shive missed this line in manual
10:28:57bluebrotheror are we talking about different things? What are you trying to achieve?
10:29:06wisp_shtoo much english today for me )
10:30:14bluebrotherif you want to install an official build you can simply use Rockbox Utility. If you want to add patches it's a lot more complicated.
10:31:00wisp_shi want to install rockbox
10:31:01amiconnLear, n1s: The viewers.bmp in icons/ was wrong because it was used unconditionally for both colour and non-colour targets
10:31:04wisp_shnothing else
10:31:12bluebrotherdang. Ok, in that case I got you wrong.
10:31:27bluebrothersorry for the confusion.
10:31:46bluebrotherwell, just try Rockbox Utility −−
10:31:55amiconnThe correct one is generated from apps/plugins/bitmaps/viewer_defaults/viewers.<format>.bmp, and will always be included
10:32:32amiconnBut because of this, the themes wanting the default must no longer reference it explicitly, but set it to empty instead

15:13:20Horschtfyrestorm, you get a revision that has the issue, and one that doesn't
15:13:41Horschtthen you make a build that's right in between those 2 revision
15:13:56fyrestormall i know is the revision from 20080222 works
15:14:09gevaertsamiconn: true, but this is the easiest way to do it, and I know it works. The official way would be to stall the request for a device qualifier descriptor, but that would require lots of testing to make sure it doesn't break anything. As this is a temporary measure (USE_HIGH_SPEED will go once high-speed works reliably), I think this is the best way.

15:27:09fyrestormill go in order
15:27:57gevaertsfyrestorm: Then try the one halfway. If that works, try one halfway that one and the last, else halfway that one and the first, and so on... Of course, with only nine builds, you can start at the first and go up until it fails
15:28:36fyrestormsure thing. just zip them in order and ill get to it
15:29:19rasherfyrestorm: They idea is not to do them in order, but rather do the bare minimum needed to circle in on which one broke
15:29:28fyrestormoh ok
15:29:45rasherOf course, this is less important when there are only 9

15:43:51fyrestormi know
15:46:52gevaertsBenjamin_L: there seems to be a bug in the flash driver on the sansas (at least the c) that makes writing from high-speed usb unreliable. Can you make a build with USE_ROCKBOX_USB and USE_HIGH_SPEED defined, and try writing a large file (preferably to the SD card, since that's a lot safer), then unmount, remount, read it back and verify if the files are identical.
15:47:24Benjamin_Lok then first i need to get it building, never built rockbox before
15:47:50Benjamin_Land i don't have a microsd card ^^
15:48:45gevaertsBenjamin_L: I could provide test builds, but using the internal flash to identify a write error will probably lead to having to reinstall everything. Better leave that to someone who has an sd card...
15:49:01*rasher is on it

15:51:50desowinyou mean sansa->pc reliable, otherwise not?
15:53:07desowinI write to card by sansa and read it in reader

15:56:10rasherI'll try both. Trying SD now, 420MB file
15:56:13gevaertsdesowin: that seems to be the case, yes. At least on my c250
15:57:26gevaertsAnd by takig out a udelay() that the comments explicitly say is needed to make it work, makes it work here...

16:25:13kushal_oneHello, I think I have bricked my Sandisk Sansa c250. The computer I use with my RockBox is a macbook with Mac OS X 10.4. I wanted to copy all files in the sansa disk to a place in the hard disk but somehow I ended up deleting everything. I did not realize what I had done until it was too late. Now when I turn the device on, it does not have anything in the display but only the backlight to the navigation buttons. Can I reverse this process? Pleasehel
16:25:13kushal_onep ...I think the problem is that the part of the storage on the sandisk sansa c250 that I can modify is blank. I accidentally deleted it.
16:25:13kushal_oneRecovery mode does not work, neither does the Volume up + right navigation mode. A friend suggested that the device might be stuck in some sort of manufacturer mode. Please help me. How can I unbrick this player?

16:25:24kikkoman``i just guessed, i ahve no idea what arm-elf-gcc is
16:25:45gevaertsrasher: it seems that the sd driver behaves slightly differently on e200 than on c200, but I think more testing can reveal only what numbers work best _most of the time_, which IMHO isn't good enough. Someone needs to find out how to fix this properly (preferably someone who knows this driver)
16:26:01kushal_oneThe player does not even show up on my macbook (10.4.11). It shows the notification bubble on a Windows machine but it still does not work.
16:26:02kushal_oneBootloader mod did not work on my mac.
16:26:02kushal_oneLet me add some detail if they help. Just before the player stopped working, I think I ended up deleting everything in the player when I wanted to back up the files. I remember that the player worked even after this but it stopped working once I turned it off and back on.

16:28:04Benjamin_Lgevaerts: thanks, running it right now
16:33:50rashergevaerts: so your theory is that it isn't an USB problem, but a ata driver problem?
16:36:01 Nick fxb is now known as fxb__ (
16:36:03gevaertsrasher: yes. Everything points to that. reading back from flash what hasjust been written from the UMS driver shows a difference, the error is 32-byte aligned somehow (which is the SD chunk size), the error has a size of two bytes (SD works with words), removing the udelay() seems to fix it, and it doesn't seem to be reproducible on disk targets
16:40:11rasherGood thing the sansas are not used much for recording, or we'd have been lynched by now
16:40:17gevaertsBuschel: I found two possible register settings that might influence power consumption. Can you test them, or should I ask someone else (I can't really do it myself, as I can't realistically do three full battery tests now)
16:41:48 Quit einhirn (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
16:41:53gevaertsrasher: for some reason I can't reproduce it without USB. test_disk doesn't see it and copying a large file within rockbox doesn't trigger it either, so USB probably does something (timing, RAM access, ...) that makes it more likely
16:41:54Buschelgevaerts: I had some strange issues with the USB-stack. In HIGH_SPEED mode it was recognized by win2k, but it took minutes until the driver letter was assigned. Then there was no access possible to the device. When using FULL_SPEED everything seem to work fine until I started to copy a 200MB-file to my iPod: The multicard reader attached to the same hub was dis- and reconnected several dozen times... Is this known?
16:43:06Horschtcould the ipod simply drain too much energy, leaving the hub with not enough power to keep the card reader "alice"?
16:43:14Horscht(wild guess)
16:43:23Horschtbased on nothing
16:43:53***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
16:45:12gevaertsBuschel: the first one is known. I hadn't heard about the second problem yet. I'm starting to suspect that there is a signal quality issue somewhere. Is it possible that somehow the usb controller needs a higher voltage to work properly ?
16:45:22*gevaerts assumes that alice is alive
16:46:18gevaertsHorscht: if it were a power drain issue, I think the problems would also occur without a busy transfer
16:47:10Hodapphmm... if my iPod 3G is plugged into a dock with Firewire just providing power from an AC adapter, it turns off periodically (which is normal) and then immediately starts back up (which I don't think is normal{
16:49:26kushal_onerasher, how does the e200tool work?
16:52:16rasherkushal_one: I don't know much about it -
16:52:43kushal_onethanks, rasher
16:53:36Buschelgevaerts: but wouldn't the iPod disconnect, if there would be an power issue with the USB-controller? But the iPod's connection seemed stable, only the other device disconnected...
16:54:14Buschelgevaerts: and btw, what registers did you find that may influence power consumption?
16:54:33kushal_onesince, Tiger is Unix-like just like Linux, the e200tool should work on it. but I don't want to do anything even more stupid than I have already done
16:57:21gevaertsBuschel: the port control register (REG_PORTSC1) has a bit to stop the PHY clock, which could be enabled by setting "REG_PORTSC1 |= PORTSCX_PHY_LOW_POWER_SPD;" at the end of usb_drv_exit() in usb-drv-pp502x.c, or the entire controller could be reset with "REG_USBCMD |= USBCMD_CTRL_RESET;" at the same place. Both need to be called after the REG_USBCMD &= ~USBCMD_RUN line. I think the first is more likely to help, the second one is more of a guess
16:57:34krazykitkushal_one, there's a pre-built e200tool for osx in a recent mailing list post, should you need it.
16:58:18Buschelgevaerts: what is the configuration of REG_PORTSC1 before attaching USB the first time?
16:58:32gevaertsBuschel: and as far as electrical problems are concerned, USB behaviour is pretty much unpredictable if you have them

17:02:47kushal_oneIf Daniel is correct, my c250 is not bricked ... a ray of hope ...

19:15:18soapsmartmind - you should stop using the "Enter" key as a replacement for the space-bar. logbot has an itchy trigger finger, and seems quite willing to not only kick - but also ban those who are incapable of writing single long lines instead of flooding the channel with lots of five word lines,
19:16:09gevaertsbarrywardell: 1) might be worth looking into. You can tweak this near the end of usb_storage.c. 4) and 5) show that c200 and e200 have different sd driver behaviour. 6) I don't have an opinion
19:16:11kushal_onewhen I ran the first command, this appeared in the player "LUN0 locked"
19:16:21krazykitthat's normal.

20:07:41krazykitbillenium, you're essentially wiping the disk clean, so it doesn't matter
20:07:52gevaertsJdGordon: maybe. The easiest would be if someone who has compiled rockbox stuff on osx before would do it, but access would work as well. This problem should be solvable with my e200rpatcher based repair tool

20:08:21billeniumoh no

22:07:55 Quit jhulst (Success)
22:09:44jhMikeSNot too much yet other that at least get the drv portion worked out.
22:10:20Nico_Pyeah that's what I meant. If it's not too complicated I could try getting the driver going

23:10:25pixelmaI thought some could even use logbot to unban him but I couldn't figure out which parameters I would have to feed him with (how the ban was "defined")
23:11:55Bagderyes, iirc banlist shows some id that can be used
23:13:26pixelmaI couldn't use banlist - from the other computer I was logged in earlier I got nothing and now I tried here got the answer that I "must be registered with PASS" first
23:14:00Bagderyes, most higher-level commands require that you authenticate first
23:14:12pixelmaor "must register"... so I guess I didn't have the rights

23:23:38*Bagder will commit a username => realname mapping file and fix his script to use that
23:29:35gevaertsFrom what I've seen the sansa SD driver behaves differently on c200 than on e200. My c250 gets write errors while using usb if the udelay(2) is there in the write loop in ata-c200_e200.c, while e200 gets errors if it isn't there. I think we need to find out why.
23:30:26gevaertsWe can of course just put an #ifdef around it, but I feel a bit nevous about that kind of timing issue
23:31:33gevaertsActually, e200 gets errors too, but they're much rarer
23:32:08jhMikeSgevaerts: did you try issuing the PRG after sending all the data and then waiting for fifo empty? I can't think of a better reason atm.
23:33:16gevaertsjhMikeS: the errors are not near the end of the buffer, so I can't really see that helping
23:35:36jhMikeSI know but the sd hw itself may be doing something internally.
23:37:22gevaertsYes, but PRG is only set at the last chunk. Moving that entire if block won't change behaviour.
