00:04:28gevaertsRemoving that continue won't make it work. It needs to skip over the goto ata_write_error; so maybe a while(1) around that will do

00:06:07gevaertsjhMikeS: won't it write one FIFO-sized block too many like this ?
00:06:43peturanybody want to give an opinion on 8585? I want to reject it because I think a picture viewer shouldn't work like that...

01:49:55obaidi have two little questions about rockbox
01:50:44obaidfirst: i used a self build of rockbox on my sansa e250 before and it had the "load DB to ram" option which made it so much faster
01:51:10obaidis it possible to set the same settings in the normal rockbox builds?

01:57:14pixelmaobaid: I don't think so... and it only should have been faster if you also had enabled the database auto-update (I don't think Rockbox is slow on my c250 but I don't use auto-update at all and the database not much in general).
01:57:45pixelmaalso, what svn revision are you on? Because there was a bug that was fixed just yesterday/today that could have caused slowdown under certain circumstances

02:12:37brendan193in wondows explorer the folder i need to get to is located @ c:\rockbox-bleeding
02:12:43brendan193cant get there in cygwin
02:13:14LloreanYes, you can.
02:13:25brendan193how so?
02:13:31LloreanUse the cd command.
02:13:39Lloreancd c:\rockbox-bleeding ought to be enough, I think.
02:13:50LloreanThough it's been ages since I've used cygwin.
02:13:57cool_walking_I don't think cygwin supports the windows paths
02:14:05cool_walking_you have to use /cygdrive/c/rockbox-bleeding
02:14:10brendan193ha got it thx
02:14:15LloreanI'm pretty sure it used to use windows paths just fine
02:14:19LloreanIt would translate 'em, iirc.

05:42:02scorchetest it and find out :)
05:42:59webguest40nobody has tested yet. I used to have it installed but removed it because battery would die in 2 hours or so. Just wanted to know if anybody gets better battery life now
05:43:30scorche2 hours? must have a very old battery..
05:43:31webguest25maybe your battery needs to be replaced? how long have you had it?
05:44:23webguest40well, maybe a year now. It works just fine without rockbox installed. I could listen to a full episode of howard stern and still have good batter life.
05:44:38scorchehave you performed a proper test?
05:44:41webguest25also what voice does rockbox use?
05:44:50webguest40what do you mean
05:45:03webguest40I like rockbox just wish battery lasted longer
05:45:12webguest40with it installed
05:45:42brianinmaineMy friend, a drummer was wondering if anyone is able to use midi on a sansa e280. it only gives errors while playing..
05:45:54webguest25rockbox can talk, for visually impaired users or people in the car etc
05:46:17webguest40i never used anything like that on it. so I wouldn't be able to tell you.
05:46:30scorchewebguest40: well, have you done a battery bench of your battery to see exactly how long it lasts?...and compared it with the original firmware playing the same songs under similar conditions?
05:46:49webguest25ah. actually it is on by default, you probably didn't have the .voice file installed
05:47:07scorchewebguest25: that depends on what you create the voices with...i am far from a voice expert though
05:48:33webguest25ah ok. I would test it, but can't install it. unless you can use it on a zen nano plus? I use the zune more though, or try to
05:48:55krazykitthe supported players are listed on the front page
05:49:05scorchewebguest25: all the players that rockbox currently supports are listed on the front more, no less
05:49:10webguest40well I don't know how to run a battery bench mark. Is that just me keeping an eye on how long it lasts or is there a procedure.
05:50:31webguest25there's a battery bench file in the rocks folder in the rockbox directory, if that helps
05:51:57 Quit Evilnick_ (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
05:52:02scorchewebguest25: is a plugin that outputs a log file on the battery at different points so you dont have to manually time/watch the device and see when it dies (as well as recording useful information such as voltage, etc)
05:52:40webguest25also do the voice options work with the games, apps and other things?
05:52:51webguest40im going to install rockbox again tonight. I love they way I can load my songs without using itunes. makes it easier to backup songs on my other computer as well.

06:10:22midgeythe zip contains a folder starting with a dot which are hidden on make
06:10:43scorchethis is because the folder contained in the .zip file starts with a "." which denotes it as hidden...just make sure and extract it to the root of your ipod liek the instructions say

07:00:32Bagderits before 7am :-)
07:00:47Bagderok, now it _is_ 7 am
07:01:42JdGordonanyone think there would be much uproar if the shuffle behaviour was changed so the playlist viewer showed the playlist in the order, but the current track jumped around?
07:01:55JdGordoninstead of doing the full shuffle before starting
07:02:10LloreanI'm quite certain there would be some objections.
07:02:33LloreanI mean, if you save a shuffled playlist, doesn't it save the shuffled order?
07:02:41Bagderit does
07:03:04LloreanSo long as it's actually shuffling the playlist, and not "random playback", I think the playlist viewer should show the true order.
07:03:05JdGordonarg, forgot about saving playlists...

08:21:07amiconnThe simplelist itself does use lcd_puts_scroll()

09:02:07GodEaterand why does mounting make any difference ?
09:02:18*scorche sees a bit of LinusN -> Bagder -> Zagor ;)
09:02:28amiconnOn sansa, it causes some data corruption which seems to be caused by the sd driver, but only in conjunction with usb highspeed transfers

09:08:19GodEaterand I got around 5MB/s transfer speed on a read
09:09:03LinusNcould it be a powered vs non powered hub issue?
09:09:06amiconnI compared highspeed transfer speed on my mini. On reading, rockbox is as fast as apple diskmode, on writing it manages ~70% of diskmode speed
09:09:13amiconn(if it works at all)
09:10:19GodEaterI'm seeing resets in dmesg output on write attempts
09:10:20amiconn2.1MB/s read. 1.4MB/s write (diskmode), 900kB/s write (rockbox). Well, this is just a microdrive....

09:28:30GodEaterI thought that was the concept anyway ?
09:28:41JdGordonthe issue is the wps scrolling lines still scroll in the list vp because the list doesnt know how to kill them by their vps
09:30:07amiconnI would think that if you switch from the wps to a list (browser, menu etc), the wps would be responsible for destroying its vp
09:30:36JdGordonthats a bad assumption because 99% of the screens cant do that right now
09:31:05JdGordonand that would add heaps of overhead, having to stop them at every exit point

11:46:31peturI know, but this is core functionality...
11:46:33barrywardellit boosts the cpu frequency to max in the sansa bootloader

11:47:17LinusNi have noticed it on my X5
11:47:22barrywardellshould it apply to all other PP bootloaders?
11:47:27LinusNbut only when you resume directly after boot

11:50:35barrywardellwhat's wrong with it? the of bootloders do it

13:05:28*barrywardell is hoping that they will persuade amiconn and LinusN that running the rockbox bootloader at 80MHz is a good idea
13:05:56*Bagder is with barrywardell on this
13:08:35*mrkiko is crashing
13:08:51daurnimatori would do gsoc
13:08:56daurnimatorbut I'm not 18
13:09:25amiconnbarrywardell: Sansa is PP5022/5024, so heat might not be that big an issue. But H10 and several iPods are PP5020, and heat definitely is an issue on those
13:10:51barrywardellamiconn: on my H10, at least, the bootloader already runs at 80MHz. I can't comment on the iPods because I don't have one
13:11:45barrywardellamiconn: for the time being, I'm only proposing setting the cpu frequency on sansa since that's the only place we can safely replace the bootloader
13:11:52gevaertsamiconn: speaking of heat, could you try high-speed usb on the H10 with the trigger_boost() calls from usb_storage.c removed ? It doesn't work at all any more on my c250.
13:12:51*gevaerts means high speed doesn't work at all any more without boost
13:14:30amiconnbarrywardell: I'm not concerned about regular bootloader operation, as that's just a few seconds. But imho the bootloader should stay safe even if it locks up for whatever reason (broken hdd ...)
13:18:06barrywardellamiconn: yes, but making sure the sansa bootloader runs at 80MHz is not really changning the current behaviour
13:18:45amiconnIiuc it is
13:18:55barrywardellamiconn: and I think it's far more likely that rockbox could freeze while boosted which would be the same problem
13:20:13gevaertsIs there anyone here who can reproduce the Vista BSOD issue and can try a test build ?
13:20:17barrywardellthe sansa of bootloader leaves the device running at 80MHz when it starts the rb bootloader, so that's what I mean by it not changing the current behavious
13:20:36fyrestormi'll try it out
13:22:07*gevaerts is waiting for a slow upload to finish
13:22:39amiconnbarrywardell: It is, because right now if the sansa loader would hang, it would not start the rockbox bootloader at all. So if it acts up, it would not be the rb bootloader's fault if something goes seriously wrong
13:23:01gevaertsfyrestorm: wget gevaerts/">
13:23:20fyrestormgot it
13:23:29*gevaerts typed one word too much, and hopes Bagder won't get angry about it

13:24:11gevaertsamiconn: ok.
13:24:18barrywardellamiconn: but if the rockbox bootloader hangs, we're still running at 80MHz and it is the rb bootloader's fault if something goes seriously wrong
13:24:19pixelmais the recent svn table on the frontpage gone for somebody else?
13:24:26amiconngevaerts: Do you already have an idea (aka, checked with the usb tracer) what could be the cause of the hub problem?

13:28:06gevaertsfyrestorm: thanks. That confirms the serial number theory.

13:33:00peturpixelma: yes, it seems gone...
13:33:22peturZagor probably fixed it :)
13:33:45gevaertsSo the Vista BSOD problem is definitely triggered by something in the USB serial number. Any objections to disabling the serial number if USE_ROCKBOX_USB is not set ? That will make Vista users running the daily builds happy until we have a real fix

16:55:02pondlifeI'd be interested to see if it makes such a noticable difference on Coldfire.

16:55:37amiconnI wouldn't want our bootloader to switch to cpufreq_max for safety reasons
16:55:55amiconnThe coldfire bootloaders should switch to cpufreq_normal though, imho
16:56:43pondlifeI agree with barrywardell that a lockup during playback/buffering (when boosted and potentially unattended) is more likely than during boot.

17:03:13amiconnOn H300 we could activate the PCF poweroff safety measure. Would be a little illogical because you could then switch off the H300 by holding ON for a while, but still better when being stuck without a paperclip...

17:04:07pondlifeThat would be good, IMHO
17:04:12amiconnBut if rockbox is responsive, we can reset the timer
17:04:37amiconnSo even an extended hold wouldn't switch it off by accident, as long as rockbox didn't lock up

17:29:58fyrestormim getting random shutdowns and totally battery drains on my ipod when scanning a new database
17:30:13GodEaterfyrestorm: let it charge more before you use it ?
17:30:18LambdaCalculus37webguest13: What's your question?
17:30:20fyrestormfully charged.
17:30:28GodEaterthen sounds like you need a new battery
17:30:32fyrestormits not really random

17:31:09webguest13i got rockbox up and running on my ipod, but when I look at the file structure with a file manager (like midnight commander) I cannot see any of the rockbox files
17:31:32GodEaterwebguest13: presumably it hides files starting with a "." then
17:31:46LambdaCalculus37GodEater: Beat me. :)
17:32:14webguest13no I do see files from podzila (I installed ipodlinux earlier)
17:32:20LambdaCalculus37webguest13: Linux (and Unix) hide files and folders that begin with a "."

17:32:31GodEaterwebguest13: what's that got to do with rockbox ?
17:33:16webguest13I was trying to add a wad file to the doom game by manually dragging it there but can't seem to find any files
17:33:26preglowwebguest13: if you've got rockbox running well, then they're there, simple as that that, look for .rockbox at the root
17:34:36*LambdaCalculus37 tries to remember if Midnight Commander had a hidden file view option
17:34:49*preglow never liked any of the commanders
17:34:52webguest13I do see .rockbox at /media/.rockbox but there isn't anything in it
17:35:07preglowwebguest13: then you don't have a working rockbox install
17:35:16LambdaCalculus37webguest13: Download and reinstall again.
17:36:11preglowwebguest13: and make sure to remove the "rockbox.ipod" file it sounds you have placed at the root directory after you have installed again
17:36:13webguest13when I unplug my ipod, rockbox comes up and I can play some of the games
17:36:37preglowwebguest13: well, ok, then something is awfully wrong, you can't play games if .rockbox is empty
17:37:19webguest13yes midnight commander has a hidden file option and i have it enabled
17:37:27preglowthose games are placed in .rockbox/rocks/, and you sure as hell can't play anything if that directory does not exist
17:37:32webguest13yes preglow I know it is freaking weird

17:38:15webguest13maybe I should remove all the ipod linux (non-existant rockbox files) and reinstall rockbox from there
17:38:25preglowand it sounds like you're doing something weird, you shouldn't be looking in /media/.rockbox, you should be looking in /media/IPODNAMEHERE/.rockbox
17:38:37LambdaCalculus37webguest13: Yes, good idea.
17:38:37webguest13lol preglow
17:41:24webguest13ok I'll do that then and see what happens. Ok if and when I get rockbox installed with viewable files, how would I add playlist etc so the databse finds them
17:41:52preglowreading the manual would be a good start
17:42:00preglowalso, the db doesn't deal in playlists as far as i know

17:47:45webguest13when I deleted all of the old ipodlinux install I could see the rockbox files
17:49:08webguest13question? I should be able to run the rbutil from my home directory in my linux box? I don't need to have the rbutil on my ipod, correct?
17:49:44LambdaCalculus27webguest13: Yes.
17:49:59webguest13cool, thanks
17:50:10GodEateris that not clear in the manual ?
17:50:52 Nick LambdaCalculus27 is now known as LambdaCalculus37 (n=44a0430f@gateway/web/cgi-irc/
17:51:11webguest13well anything new (install rockbox etc) can sem confusing and the install directions were either that or just to damn easy
17:51:40GodEaterI didn't understand that sentence
17:51:44GodEateris it clear or not ?
17:51:56LambdaCalculus37What wasn't clear about the instructions?
17:52:00GodEaterright thanks :)
17:52:07GodEaterwhat would you prefer to have read to make it clear ?
17:52:17GodEaterthen we can change it
17:54:07webguest13the instructions on the automatic install tell you what it does and directs you to the rbutil then thats it. It would helpful if after that, you have some very basic, simple, clear install instructions
17:54:54LambdaCalculus37webguest13: RBUtil has well labeled buttons, and it shouldn't take too much guesswork to say "Oh, so this button does this" and "That button does that".
17:55:19webguest13Ex: 1. Download the rbutil from here (link). 2. Extrct the file using (whatever) to you home directory. 3. Make (file) executable by (instructions)
17:55:33brainwreckI was absolutely amazed at how seemless the install was
17:55:42brainwrecki was expecting to have to go through contortions
17:56:03brainwreckcongratz on a very slick open source product !
17:56:12LambdaCalculus37brainwreck: Thank you very much. :)
17:56:20webguest13well not everyone has the same inteligence as others
17:56:23*LambdaCalculus37 gives brainwreck a cookie for his kind words
17:56:33brainwreck... the sansa software is ridiculous. so nice to have it replaced
17:56:45webguest13I too thought it is an easy install once I got the util to get going
17:56:55brainwreckGodEater do you happen to know what the best frameskip number would be for Rockboy on the sansaE200 ?
17:57:07LambdaCalculus37webguest13: Can you run the util right now?
17:57:18webguest13and I am not knocking it, it is fantastic, just trying to offer some info on my experience with it
17:57:23brainwreckmidkay I am a decent programmer ... have other people done this deal with iBoy already ?
17:58:42carsWebguest13: One thing I noticed while installing with rbutil was that it wasn't immediately clear which option to choose when clicking the complete install button when the dialog comes up saying something like ""Ipod firmware is working and up−−to-date. Do you want to replace it?"
17:58:54brainwreckoh it was midgey and he left
17:59:48brainwreckthere was something with RButil where an FAQ was saying NOT to use the full install button
18:00:06brainwreckbut instead to use the Bootloader and then Install buttons seperately on the second tab
18:00:25brainwreckbootloader installer*
18:00:33LambdaCalculus37brainwreck: Thanks for pointing that out.
18:00:47LambdaCalculus37webguest13: Do you see what brainwreck just mentioned? Did you use that install method?
18:01:01brainwreckyeah now that i think about it that was the snag I ran into with RButil
18:01:13webguest13the softare is fantstic, the install instructions are good but I think what is missing is a very simple 1. 2. 3. set of instructions at the end of the automatic install info
18:01:33webguest13ah ok thanks agin
18:01:43brainwreckwell those instructions are there ... but then you find out they are wrong for the time being from the FAQ
18:02:02brainwrecki think that will all be fixed in due time, judging by how solid the rest of it is
18:02:16carsI echo webguest13's praise. Other than a weird specific 2gen Ipod issue, I have had no problems, given that this is rapidly changing experimental software.
18:02:43webguest13I am uninstalling the rockbox install from my ipod and gonna do I complete fresh install
18:03:08webguest13it is taking a while to uninstall the bootloader
18:03:24webguest13it's just siting there on 0%

18:04:15webguest13bbl gotta run to the store, anyone want anything

18:20:54gevaertsPutting the usb tracer between my laptop and my sansa makes the ehci errors go away. Since the tracer should act as a repeater (at most), this might point to a signal quality issue. There are still resets, following 95-byte packets that should be 512 (those look familiar...)

20:31:01gevaertsIs it (easily) possible (and harmless) to increase the voltage on a PP chip ? From what I've seen I strongy suspect that we have USB signalling quality problems, and I'd like to experiment a bit.
20:31:34Buschelgevaerts: what player do you have?
20:31:43gevaertsBuschel: Sansa c250
20:32:30*moos is wondering if those sansas are v2?
20:32:58Buschelthen you may ask saratoga. he played around with the core voltage supply.
20:33:00scorche|shsome might be, but as they are refurbs, i would guess that most are v1s
20:33:09BuschelI could tell you for iPods
20:34:31gevaertsOK. I'll ask him.
20:34:33moosscorche: luck depending then :)
20:37:42gevaertssaratoga: if you happen to read the logs, I'd like to know how to change voltages on a sansa c200. Can you help with that ?
20:37:49GodEater_Buschel: so what's the answer on iPods ? ;)
20:38:14Buscheljust a second...
20:39:44GodEater_isn't it a shame that AMD/ATI didn't buy PortalPlayer instead of nVidia ?
20:39:55amiconngevaerts: Did you test with the usb tracer?
20:40:24amiconnI think that if it is voltage, it's most certainly some I/O voltage, not the core voltage
20:40:36GodEater_amiconn: he did - he got no errors with his tracer
20:40:53amiconnAlso, afaik USB signal levels are 5V, so there must be some step-up converter
20:41:07GodEater_iiuc he thinks this is because it acts as a repeater in the middle of the connection, and therefore stepped up the voltage
20:41:07BuschelGodEater: You'll have to change "pcf50605_write(DCDC1, 0xec);" (=1.2V) in firmware/drivers/pcf50605.c to some other value like e.g. 0xed = 1.225V, 0xee = 1.25V, ...

20:41:53gevaertsamiconn: I did some basic tests (maybe more tomorrow). There are two main results : (1) the ehci errors go away with the tracer in between, and (2) we still have incomplete packets some of the time (the old 95-byte problem). Those seem to be the ones that cause reset on read
20:42:24gevaertsAt least the first one makes me suspect signalling quality.
20:43:27gevaertsI might be able to get real measurements on that, but then I'll first have to convince the guy who knows the equipment to help me

20:46:11GodEater_too late...
20:46:12*amiconn would think that the USB voltage is generated using that
20:46:59GodEater_shouldn't most of the voltage be coming from the host end of the connection (sorry if that's a naive question) ?
20:48:00gevaertsGodEater_: only the write side. That's consistent with what I see here : writes generate much less dmesg output (noearly none) than reads
20:48:18GodEater_curious that I saw the opposite then =/
20:48:34GodEater_I can't test again right now though
20:48:58*gevaerts remembers reading something about host vs device power in the iMX31 spec, and goes to check
20:48:59GodEater_so it's possible I didn't exercise the read function as much

20:52:33amiconngevaerts: If the DCUD converter of the pcf50650 is actually the one providing USB power, and it's not enabled, output voltage would most probably be equal to input voltage
20:52:47amiconnSo USB signal quality would depend on charging state of the battery
20:53:00gevaertsI also have a trace of windows communicating with the OF, with the SD slot empty. I hope I can learn from that how to improve the SCSI part

21:57:12gevaertsYes and no. Portalplayer chips have a USB controller from ARC (they have some other name now). The iMX31 chips have the same controller, and should be able to use the same driver.
21:58:41Casainhoah, okok... so USB software in RB is much dependent of hardware? :-(
21:58:41gevaertsYou basically can't do USB without some kind of dedicated hardware, be it a usb-ata bridge or a device-side or OTG controller
21:59:50Casainhookok... I wish good work to the guys that are working on USB, on PP :-)
22:00:06gevaertsIt's partly dependent. There is the controller driver (in usb-drv-pp502x.c) that is hardware-specific, and there are the higher-level drivers (usb-core.c, usb-storage.c and usb-serial.c) that should be hardware-agnostic
22:00:55gevaertsWhat chipset were you looking at ? Maybe it does have a controller or has a variant that does.

I saw the discussion on how high speed works best when not connected to a hub, and I agree my symptoms look similar, but a) I'm full speed not highspeed and b) I'm connecting to the only ports my laptop has

22:19:16stripwaxa new datapoint : if I plug my ipod into my laptop when my laptop is turned off, then turn on my laptop, it seems rockbox doesn't realise/notice that usb is connected at all.
22:19:53stripwax(no usb screen - although I see the soft disc icon in the corner; not sure how to interpret that)
22:20:32gevaertsstripwax: I would guess that these issues are not really high-speed specific, but more noticeable than at full speed
22:20:51stripwaxThat makes sense
22:20:56gevaertsstripwax: does the laptop see the ipod ?
22:21:34stripwaxgevaerts - hard to tell - the problem seems to still be that it doesn't see it properly and certainly doesn't assign a drive letter
22:21:34codesquidstripwax, that happens on my sansa all the time, about 30% of the time I plug it in no USB screen appears, yet the USB connection itself gets established fine
22:22:16stripwaxand when I safely remove, I always get a data abort on rockbox
22:22:57stripwax(after the "safely remove hardware" applet has stopped hanging, that is). OF works fine so pretty certain it's not directly a problem with Windows or the ipod
22:23:02gevaertsstripwax: in current svn the USB screen is triggered by the host OS starting enumeration within a certain time after connection. This is not too reliable. I'm working on fixing that, but unfortunately then I got high-speed to work so I got sidetracked
22:24:11stripwaxAnother datapoint - I do have the ipodservice installed on my pc (a "feature" of iTunes, although I have no idea what the service does, nor do I use iTunes) - reckon that could be related?
22:24:20gevaertsstripwax: You're on windows ? Then we have to take the various windows-related issues into account. that maes it even harder to know what happens. Anyway I'm working on fixing these windows issues as well
22:24:43gevaertsI don't know what that does either
22:24:45stripwaxI see the ipodservice has logged a message in the windows eventlog (although ipodservice logs unhelpful have zero useful content)

22:28:54gevaertsbertrik: intended : no storage, only a "charging only" configuration that requests 500 mA. Actual : it starts mass storage anyway, which makes it dangerous
22:29:38bertrikok. If I plug it in without holding select, my e200 reboots
22:30:45gevaertsstripwax: maybe. I seem to remember that Data Abort gives something that looks like an address. Maybe you can find (using objdump −−syms) what data structure is involved ? (otoh, it might be an instruction address as well. I really don't know)

22:56:46gevaertsstripwax: can you change usb_storage.c to force inquiry->DeviceTypeModifier to 0 in identify2inquiry() ?
22:56:59stripwaxGodEater - good question. no idea but I can quickly (ish) check..
22:57:33GodEater_I vaguely recall back when I worked for a windows vendor that the geeks used those to debug hardware issues such as these

22:58:09gevaertsGodEater_: they still exist as of XP. Not sure about vista, but I think so
22:58:14stripwaxgevaerts - sure.
22:58:25LycoLocohey guys - if every time I boot my gigabeat it shows "Committing database [1/9]" what can I do to fix that? I don't really use the database that often, so if I have to nuke it, that's fine
22:58:43*gevaerts won't admit to using windows at work these days
22:59:27GodEater_I only use it when I have no other choice

23:00:37peturamiconn: if I understand correctly, the mini contains a CFII microdrive, so it is not really out of spec to report 0x848A (which is standard CF signature value)
23:00:54stripwaxLycoLoco - every time or only when you've added new files? btw you can delete the database files (to turn off the database) - or disable the database automatic update

23:01:43LycoLocowhich files am I looking to delete if I wanna nuke the database entirely?
23:01:54LycoLocowell, reset meaning get rid of the message
23:02:10LycoLocoit never shows 2/9 or increments, it's always 1/9

23:05:09Slasherisomething is broken with your db

23:05:20LycoLocoSlasheri: you asked about 3 seconds too late :( I just emptyed the recycle bin
23:05:27LycoLocolemme initialize the database and see if it does it again
23:05:41Slasheriif it does, please dcc it to me
23:05:53Slasherii have to go to sleep now but i have autoget on
23:05:58*stripwax rebuilds and copies rockbox.ipod *using rockbox usb* for first time - this is awesome
23:06:26LycoLocowill do Slasheri
23:06:39LycoLocohahha, nice stripwax :D
23:06:50LycoLococongrats on getting that working on portalplayer devices, team
23:08:06gevaertsI'd like to commit the parts of the latest FS #8562 patch that don't do the actual threading cleanups (because those are pretty intrusive and I'd like some more review on them). They shouldn't change anything functionally. Any objections ?
23:08:33LycoLocothanks Slasheri, stripwax - that seems to have solved the problem entirely. Sorry that I deleted the file before I coudl send it to you for analyzation
23:09:01*gevaerts wants to make the final threading cleanup patch as small as possible, so reviewing will be easier
23:09:06stripwaxOld problem of database being initialized when device is empty?
23:09:15SlasheriLycoLoco: then it sounds like you might have a filesystem problem
23:09:25Slasheriplease check the disk for errors
23:09:56gevaertsstripwax: I've updated rockbox so often over its own USB now that booting the OF starts to feel unfamiliar
23:10:01LycoLocoSlasheri: it's working fine now, database works and doesn't commit every boot (unless music is added or removed) either
23:10:25bertrikgevaerts: I have USB mass storage working now without a reboot on plugin, seems to also mount faster than when I last tried it :)

23:12:24stripwaxyeah - command line has no problem, either cygwin or windows cmd, which is pretty odd - issue is that explorer seems to be unhappy

23:13:25gevaertsamiconn: I know what it will do now :-)
23:13:36stripwaxamiconn - thought so.
23:13:50RoTtEwhere can i find ROCKBOX UTILITY ?
23:14:02*amiconn made that same mistake too, not very long ago... :\
23:14:07stripwaxoh, I only copied the new build to root (by mistake) - no wonder I saw no difference just now
23:14:14stripwaxamiconn - :-p
23:14:15peturamiconn: according to CF spec 4.1 it is ok to have bits 15:12 be either 8 or 0
23:14:15RoTtEi found it :D
23:14:54amiconnpetur: Okay, so we can't use bit 15 anyway to distinguish CF <-> ATA
23:15:07scorche|shRoTtE: if you are looking to install rockbox, i highly recommend you look around in the manual
23:15:15amiconnBut still, the MK8007GAH, and the ST660211FX, both violate the ata specs
23:15:32peturamiconn: right now I am thinking of using a value of 0x044A as CF indication
23:15:43RoTtEscorche|sh: i found it. didn't say were it wat
23:15:46peturneed more values from other cards
23:15:53stripwaxNew feature: pause playback -> usb insertion -> (do stuff) -> unmount -> rockbox "scanning disk" -> rockbox gives "error accessing playlist control file" and is now stopped.
23:16:03scorche|shRoTtE: sure it does
23:16:25RoTtEi know that now :P
23:17:16*gevaerts sees no objections to his plans...
23:17:29amiconnstripwax: For me, rockbox USB works quite well when using fullspeed, on all of my windows XP laptop, my AMD-64 linux desktop, and my USB-equipped Amiga
23:17:51amiconnIt's just highspeed that's giving problems
23:18:31amiconn(of course not on Amiga as that's fullspeed only anyway)
23:19:01stripwaxamiconn - I suspect my windows explorer drive letter assignment problem and the fact that ipodservice.exe is installed on the laptop are not coinciddental
23:19:07RoTtEmy Sansa is not in my computer. i meen it's there but don't have a drive letter. only a music icon :/
23:19:14RoTtEhow can i fix?
23:19:51RoTtEusb mode?
23:19:52*amiconn also has that ipodservice installed, but deactivated as he doesn't need it except for special cases
23:20:06RoTtEyeah! whay do i ask :P
23:20:07stripwaxgevaerts - forcing DeviceTypeModifier to 0 seems to have fixed! it still takes an age to detect, but now I get a drive letter in Explorer that works! cant i use Sansa 270 ?
23:21:47BagderRoTtE: are you trying to ask something?
23:22:01RoTtEBagder: yes
23:22:19Bagderok, let me know when there's a question coming
23:22:34gevaertsstripwax: I think I may set it that way until all scsi issues are solved. There might be downsides though. Some theories have it that Windows will now start putting recycling bins on it.
23:22:38scorche|shRoTtE: you need to change the mode to MSC mode...see the manual..
23:23:21RoTtEhello grate ppl! i wonder, can i use my sansa 270? only says 200 in the program. is it only sansa 200 or is it 200 seies?
23:23:27stripwaxgevaerts - hm, really? I know that windows might do that 'anyway' for some devices (seem to remember Windows did that for my H120, but I just told it not to afterwards)

23:24:37RoTtEBagder: okay thanks :) trying now

23:26:17 Quit low_light (" ajax IRC Client")
23:26:24amiconnstripwax: It depends on whether the device reports itself as being an usb harddisk (windows *will put* recycle bin and 'system volume information' onto it), or as a removable device (windows *will not* put said clutter onto it)
23:26:58 Quit kugel ("ChatZilla 0.9.81 [Firefox]")
23:27:31gevaertsamiconn: Are you sure that being removable is the only criterion ?
23:27:33stripwaxamiconn - cool. well it seems that hardcoding to 0 does not fix my issue after all so I don't see an advantage to reporting as a usb harddisk. Would there be any other possible benefits of doing so?
23:28:43gevaertsBy the way, while I was making a trace of windows-OF USB communications, I chose "eject" on the SD card, after which the both the internal flash and the SD card were inaccessible.
23:29:43amiconngevaerts: I'm quite sure. I know that windows doesn't put mentioned folders even on disk based ipods, while it does so on my irivers and archos player+recorder
23:29:56amiconnThat perfectly coincides with the reported device type
23:31:26amiconnRegistering as usb harddisk may have the advantage that windows might allow to enable write caching on the device, but I wouldn't do that anyway
23:32:22*amiconn likes to be able to just pull the plug without fiddling with 'safe removal', 'unmounting' or similar inconvenient stuff
23:32:22gevaertsamiconn: I know ;-) I would enable write caching on a floppy, but that might be me...
23:33:51stripwaxamiconn - with ipodservice disabled I see no difference so you're right, that's just a red herring (sorry)
