00:32:43kugellinuxstb: I have a problem with your "Check for trailing | " "function"
00:33:34kugelIt doesn't work with the viewport parse function
00:33:50kugelyou might scroll back/read logs from today to read more about that
00:33:53linuxstbWhat viewport parse function?
00:35:42kugelthe one I wrote to unify viewport structure parsing in wps and lists
00:35:55*amiconn wonders what a ZXbot is :\
00:36:19linuxstbYou shouldn't have any trailing | in the .cfg file...
00:39:10kugellinuxstb: It doesn't work in the wps
00:39:26linuxstbYou mean there's a bug in SVN?
00:39:50kugelNo. It works when I use the SVN way of parsing the wps viewport
00:39:54Lloreanlinuxstb: I think he means "I want the syntax to be identical in WPS and .cfg, and in the WPS you need a trailing |"
00:40:05kugelLlorean: No...
00:40:42 Quit waldo ("Konversation terminated!")
00:42:19 Nick fxb is now known as fxb__ (
00:42:25kugelThe setting works (with or without the trailing | ), the list is also working. But the wps gets rejected when wps_parser checks for the traling |
00:43:09 Part toffe82
00:43:15kugelbut only when I use my generic viewport parse function from viewport.c, and not the svn "parse_list"
00:43:42kugeleventhough, my viewport parse function doesn't much more than parse_list
00:44:16scorche|shso are you saying that this breaks one of your patches?
00:44:47Lloreanscorche|sh: He's trying to unify the parsing for both types of viewports as suggested by linuxstb for the patch
00:44:53linuxstbI think he's saying that his patch breaks existing functionality and wants help to figure out why...
00:45:06kugelI have commented out that for now, but I doubt it's wanted
00:45:36kugellinuxstb: also correct :)
00:45:37Lloreankugel: What did you add to your generic function, since it's "not much more than parse_list" it suggests it is more.
00:45:54linuxstbYour function will need to return a pointer to the character after the data you've parsed - i.e. a pointer to where the | is expected to be.
00:46:10linuxstbThis is the return value from parse_list.
00:46:38kugelLlorean: it does actually the same the parse_viewport from wps_parser.c. As suggested, I moved the most part from wps_parser.c to viewport.c for a generic function
00:47:10kugellinuxstb: ahh, that could be the reason
00:47:27Nico_PjhMikeS: in case you needed confirmation... r16778 has much faster buffering and better responsiveness than current ones. I'm going to try r16791 now
00:47:50kugelI only return an int as of now, depeding of parse_list worked or not
00:48:33pixelmaBagder: you still around by any chance?
00:49:09 Join Thundercloud [0] (
00:51:38Nico_PjhMikeS: r16791 seems no better and no worse, although after reading the commit message it seems I could expect that
00:52:15Nico_P(DB and dircache are still disabled)
00:54:16jhMikeSNico_P: the key here is digging deep into why that device runs contrary to all others esp. given that disk contention won't be a factor with all that stuff off. I'm gonna try to make a guinea pig of my sister's if she'll allow it. :)
00:54:54kugellinuxstb: thanks, that worked
00:55:30 Quit Nevtus (Remote closed the connection)
00:56:09kugellinuxstb: What did you say about traling | in .cfg? Should I avoid that? Should I check for that, and if it's there reject the value?
00:56:39Nico_PjhMikeS: could it be because of the fact that the RAM is bigger, so the audio thread would hold longer on to the disk, thus slowing buffering down?
00:56:53Nico_Phmm I'm not even really convincing myself :/
00:56:55kugelA bit confusing. Trailing pipe in wps is a must, but in .cfg a nogo?
00:57:01 Join Nevtus [0] (n=Nevtus@unaffiliated/nevtus)
00:57:18Nico_Pthe fact is that buffering is much slower now
00:57:30 Quit bluebrother ("leaving")
00:57:33jhMikeSNico_P: why should it and why wouldn't it have before then?
00:57:46Nico_Pyeah I don't see why either
00:57:59linuxstbkugel: Personally I would make the VP parameters in the .cfg a comma separated list - i.e. use ',' instead of '|' and no leading or trailing separators.
00:58:19Nico_PjhMikeS: could it be a possibility of a wrong low level setup somewhere?
00:58:54Nico_Pthe diff is far too large for me to try to understand it :/
00:59:09kugellinuxstb: I personnally like the that the list viewprt syntax and the wps syntax are the same
00:59:40jhMikeSyeah, the diff sucks cause so much #ifdef junk was removed
01:00:37 Join corevette [0] (
01:01:21linuxstbkugel: But they're not the same - there's no %V, and it's likely the WPS syntax will be extended with other things (e.g. conditionals, statusbar features)
01:01:24jhMikeSwhat sort of low-level setup? threading doesn't really get into much direct register access except tick and sleep
01:01:32Nico_PjhMikeS: have you seen the patch I posted earlier? (
01:01:56Nico_PjhMikeS: it was a shot in the dark, I really don't know what sort of things are involved in this
01:02:00Lloreankugel: I'm gonna hafta agree with linuxstb here. They're similar, but they're going to diverge anyway, and comma separated lists are a more regular thing for .cfg files
01:02:11jhMikeSNico_P: no, just plopped myself down here
01:02:26Nico_Pbut I guess there is some target specific code involved for low level kernel objects?
01:02:46***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
01:02:50kugellinuxstb: but why did I made this generic function than? I don't quite get it, if the list viewport structure and the wps viewport structure are going to differ a lot more
01:03:16linuxstbBecause it parses the core parts of the viewport - i.e. what goes into the viewport struct.
01:03:21jhMikeSNico_P: not much at all
01:04:05linuxstbkugel: That's also why I made the separator a parameter to the parse_list function.
01:04:12jhMikeSactualy nothing is low-level. the variants have corelock and/or priority inheritance. I my tests again on the inheritance and that checked out ok.
01:04:24kugellinuxstb: Ok
01:05:07Nico_PjhMikeS: is there some kind of test I could run to help figure things out?
01:05:54kugellinuxstb: but back to my previous question. As of now, it doesn't matter if there's a trailing seperator in the config. Should I explicit reject the setting value, if there's a traling seperator, or leave it as it is (hoping that the user avoids traling seperator by himself)
01:06:43 Quit EskimoSpy ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
01:06:48linuxstbkugel: I think you can ignore it.
01:06:50 Quit Soap (Connection timed out)
01:07:18LloreanI think if they're using commas, they're a lot less likely to think there should be a trailing one anyway
01:07:32kugellinuxstb: That's what I think too. But I asked before someone bashes me again
01:08:01jhMikeSNico_P: I can't think of anything specific atm. How's the navigation in general once you're in the menus?
01:08:10Nico_Pit's fine
01:08:43Nico_Pthe only things that are laggy are the ones that involve passing a queue message to the audio thread
01:08:57Nico_Pe.g. volume or entering a menu are fine
01:09:09Nico_Pbut pause/unpause takes forever
01:09:16jhMikeSI have an idea - try making the owner argument NULL in each queue_enable_queue_send call
01:10:12 Quit spiorf (Remote closed the connection)
01:10:40Nico_Pall of those calls or just buffering/audio?
01:10:40 Quit RoC_MasterMind (Remote closed the connection)
01:11:12 Quit dionoea (Remote closed the connection)
01:11:36linuxstbpixelma: Regarding your suggestion earlier about leaving fg/bg colour/shade blank in %V tags, I like the idea, but think that will just cause complications. i.e. when the user changes the fg/bg colour in the settings, how do we know to change those viewports?
01:11:45 Quit lymeca ("...and don't forget: 09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0 !")
01:12:28Lloreanlinuxstb: Are those settings going to explicitly only change the list viewport (and anything listing it as the parent) then?
01:12:38jhMikeSall in playback.c and buffering.c, and voice_thread.c (to remove that from the equation). I did neglect to recheck the queue stuff.
01:13:01Nico_PI ended up doing all of them
01:13:13linuxstbLlorean: I guess eventually they won't do much at all... Unless we add the concept of "use global values" for certain viewport items.
01:13:46Lloreanlinuxstb: I honestly wouldn't mind them being removed entirely, myself.
01:14:08LloreanSince they don't really fit into the whole "everything is viewport defined" scheme
01:15:11linuxstbI think this is the dilemma - do we keep all the existing theme settings in the UI (including things like statusbar visibility) and deal with the complication, or just make everything controlled by the theme?
01:16:00LloreanI vote the latter.
01:16:29Nico_PjhMikeS: things don't seem any better
01:16:50Lloreanlinuxstb: Generally speaking, you don't change most of them except when changing themes these days anyway, I think.
01:17:03linuxstbLlorean: I think I do as well, but can also see the usefulness of those settings for people using text-only themes, without any viewports.
01:17:23linuxstbBut I guess those people will just need to create themes for themselves...
01:18:14*kugel hates warnings
01:18:23linuxstbkugel: They're there to help...
01:18:45kugelsure, but if it works and gcc warns anyway
01:18:53Nico_PjhMikeS: I need to rerun the test though... I'm not certain I did things right
01:19:01linuxstbkugel: Are you sure it works? In all cases?
01:19:04Lloreanlinuxstb: Well, if they *really* want the option to toggle them, they can do .cfg files. But I think it's going to be minimally important, and only to a few people.
01:19:14kugelnah, they are very usefull. they just annoy, since they show my code is bad :p
01:19:25 Join dionoea [0] (
01:19:35kugellinuxstb: not entirely
01:19:59*Llorean means "minimally important" because only a few people use it, rather than "minimally important to those few", since I imagine to them it might be very important.
01:20:08kugelthe viewport gets parsed correctly (in list and wps cases) though
01:20:18LloreanBut I mean, if it complicates things much, it may just be a bad thing.
01:20:51Nico_PjhMikeS: do I need to update the codecs too?
01:21:01Nico_PI got a codec failure
01:21:26jhMikeSNico_P: for that? no.
01:21:33Nico_Pah crap it's probably because of the latest SVN changes

01:26:18*Nico_P is still getting codec failures
01:26:52*linuxstb is struggling to think of a good way to implement conditionals for viewports, and can just come up with an album-art specific solution - %VC for an album-art only viewport, and %Vc for a no-album-art only viewport...
01:28:03jhMikeSNico_P: hmmm...that shouldn't hurt anything at all.
01:29:11Nico_PjhMikeS: it's just freezing now
01:30:07Nico_Pyep... can't start audio playback
01:30:12Lloreanlinuxstb: That works for me. Can I have multiple %VCs?
01:30:35linuxstbLlorean: Yes (and Vc of course)
01:31:10 Quit handmadematters ()
01:31:23Lloreanlinuxstb: Though people *might* want a "Playback Status" viewport or a "Hold is on viewport" as well (people have done stuff like show the album art only while paused, or show enhanced track info only while hold is on)
01:31:29linuxstbLlorean: I just don't like the way that it loses the flexibility of the existing conditional system (and uses a different syntax). But given that viewports work at a level above WPSs (basically splitting a WPS into lots of little ones), I can't see how to do it...
01:31:37LloreanBut I think the *main* one is Album Art
01:32:21jhMikeSNico_P: I'll check that one out for sure.
01:33:01webguest12Hi all! A couple things. I've been going through the manual for RockBox on an IPod video, and there's a lot of "this is discussed in detail in section??." With no number or link. Also, could Voicebox be upgraded to be able to generate .voice files?

01:34:01Lloreanlinuxstb: I don't think you're going to be able to preserve the flexibility. I think you're just going to have to say "While the existing conditionals work, only this one (or these few) can be used to toggle the existence of viewports"
01:34:21markunamiconn: I tried a few different bootloaders including the iriver ones and the .map .lds files matched
01:34:41*jhMikeS tries on H10
01:35:09webguest12linuxstb: The online html version.
01:35:51linuxstbwebguest12: Ah, it seems it's broken... It stops in chapter 5.

02:01:29jhMikeSWould be more efficient to block the audio thread instead of time out all the time

02:02:21Nico_PjhMikeS: block it?
02:03:30jhMikeSqueue_wait instead of queue_wait_w_tmo. staying blocked takes 0 computing cycles afterall.
02:03:42Nico_Pah, right
02:04:41Nico_Pwhat is default for btw?
02:05:54Nico_Palso, without the timeout, where would I put the code I added to the timeout case? after treating queue messages if there isn't another one waiting?
02:06:54pixelmawebguest12: weird - I can't see anything unusual here. Maybe you could try older ones from here and compare
02:08:41webguest12pixelma: hmm, i'm using Adobe Reader 8, if it makes a difference.
02:08:47jhMikeSI guess default is just to log it
02:11:09jhMikeSI was just thinking queue_wait could be used when stopped. obviously the pcm buffer events have to be checked when playing.

04:19:16bd_Hmm, approximately where in the source are the titles for songs in the database browser assembled (ie, track number etc tacked on)? I'm trying to fix the sort order of multi-disc albums where there are >9 discs, as currently it seems to be going by asciibetical ordering...

12:23:00amiconnImho splitting the linker scripts does make sense. The linker scripts aren't very long, and the unified one was rather hard to follow with all the ifdefing
12:24:05amiconnRestructuring the PP targets in the target tree will allow to recombine some of them as well
12:24:20linuxstbDerPapst: They're implemented at a level above the rest of the WPS, so can't use the existing conditionals mechanism.
12:25:08DerPapstbecause everything below that viewport tag belongs to said viewport?

15:22:09pondlifeThat would be one solution
15:22:33pondlifeBut the default WPS doesn't currently show the statusbar, it uses it's own "icons"
15:22:36disorganizer@kugel: did you see linuxstb's hack? you could have a statusbar above and below the list
15:22:41pondlifeThat's what I want

15:23:15pondlifeThat remains the single use I would have for viewports
15:23:29pondlifekugel: Yes, or the menus status bar on the wps
15:23:34pondlifeConsistent though
15:23:57disorganizerwell in fact, i would like to popup the list-viewport ontop of the wps, while the wps still updates its non-hidden tags :-)

15:32:14disorganizerbut whats its function?
15:32:37kugeland if you set current_vp = active, you can clear&update the whole screen, and not only the (possibly) smaller viewports
15:32:48kugelcurrent_vp = parent

15:33:42disorganizer-he +it
15:34:02kugeldisorganizer: viewports don't really have a parent. this parent is an exception.
15:34:15disorganizertoo bad :-) would be nice
15:34:46disorganizerwe could define a parent and just give the rockbox contexts a child-vp as parent for their own vp definitions
15:34:54kugel"childs" are only other viewports, not really childs in sense of inheritance
15:35:05disorganizeri dont mean inheritance here.
15:35:23disorganizeryou can also have childs without inheriting anything to them, just for limiting their display space
15:35:53disorganizerso what we could do is: we use a wps-like cfg-file for the main vp (i dont call it parent on purpose).
15:36:27disorganizerthis could define for example a viewport 0|0|200|10 and display time there, and a vp 0|50|200|10 and display batt+volume there, but....
15:36:39kugelDon't change the parent vp
15:36:54kugelyou will get the behavior you know from JdGordon_ old list-vp patch
15:36:56disorganizer... also a vp 0|10|200|40 which will be defined as "context vp"
15:37:07Rincewindamiconn: got my private message?
15:37:11kugelthe parent is needed in order to update&clear the whole screen
15:37:15disorganizer@kugel: wait a second
15:38:10disorganizerif we change contexts, the content of the "context vp" will be given to the other context to fill it. the only thing we need to do: get the screen updated outside the context vp.
15:38:52disorganizerin linuxstb's patch, i did change the main-vp and the updates worked. so the problem only exists in jdgordons original patch, not in the statusbar-hack of linuxstb. i didnt look into what he exactly did though

15:40:05disorganizerpetur: the advantage imho is that you have one file where you define the general rockbox layout (content which is shown in all contexts) and the config files for the contexts themselves are in their own files/settings
15:40:10disorganizerkugel: yes
15:40:38kugeldisorganizer: but this empty space got filled by the statusbar, which was updated?

15:41:36kugeldisorganizer: see, only empty space doesn't get updated
15:41:53disorganizer??? i dont get what you mean
15:42:05kugeldisorganizer: if the the parent's dimensions and the statusbar's dimensions fill together the whole screen, then there's no problem
15:42:20peturdisorganizer: it looks to me you are thinking of an overly complex system for some relatively simple layout stuff we need to do
15:42:40disorganizera theme which is designed good should have fitting vp's together with no spaces in between except for the backdrop
15:42:57pondlifeWe just need a top-level subdivision of the screen surely.
15:43:15disorganizerpondlife: thats exaclty what i meant
15:43:16kugeldisorganizer: the problem of JdGordon_'s old list.vp patch was, that he changed the parent (reduced the dimensions), but he didn't fill it up with an updating viewport, so the parts weren't updated
15:43:32pondlifeSo no need for "depth" or parent/child relationships

15:51:34disorganizerwe do have viewport within viewport already. also parent relation

15:52:11linuxstbdisorganizer: We do and we don't... pondlife's description of viewport within a display is more accurate.
15:52:35amiconnkugel: The rule is that active viewports must not overlap. You can subdivide a viewport, but then you must not draw into both the parent and the child(ren) at the same time
15:52:35linuxstbi.e. there is a default viewport that covers the whole display, but that's really just for convenience in the LCD driver.

17:27:44kugeli guess the latter is right, since grep didn't found HAVE_LCD_REMOTE in firmware/export
17:27:46LloreanBeta2K: Rockbox is going to need to look for actual tags on the file anyway, as we support more tags than they do. Importing playlists might be good though.

17:33:55Beta2Kamiconn/scorche, even if we're just updating the playcount DB? That's a totally seperateDb from teh music one
17:34:14linuxstbamiconn: Am I right in thinking that #includes should be protected in the .h file itself (i.e. backdrop.h) rather than in the .c files including that .h file?
17:34:44gevaertsOf course. I just hope we can have it working properly before anyone reverse engineers the sansa database :)

22:14:40ceclinyep, i've been using it on my iPod mini 1G for a couple months
22:14:55pickymarkun: ping
22:14:57ceclinI have a iPod 3G also that someone gave me, but the battery died. Rockbox would be on there too if it worked.
22:15:11ceclinI have a lot of .flac files, its the only way i can get apple stuff to play it
22:16:34Chipsarucan rockbox recognize one big flac file + cue?
22:17:28linuxstbChipsaru: Yes
22:17:54linuxstb(as long as the cue is a separate file, not embedded)
22:17:58pickymarkun: I think the state names in your last commit are somewhat orthogonal. Some mean what is being done (filling, idle, finished) while others mean state (full). Just from the names, e.g. "filling" does not exclude "full". And isn't "finished" same as "idle"? I.e. after we're finished, aren't we in the idle state?
22:18:01 Quit ctaylorr (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
22:18:04ceclinI have a question though, would there be any interest in other formats aside from RealAudio? I've always been interested in the video game music formats, and i noticed rockbox is missing support for some classic systems..
22:18:16Chipsarulinuxstb: as a playlist? or how?
22:18:58pickymarkun: the states may be (and probably are) different from the technical point of view but the enum names are a bit misleading or confusing at the first glance.
22:19:04linuxstbChipsaru: No, as "sub-tracks" within a track. i.e. it will display the correct metadata for each sub-track and let you skip back/forwards. But it's just one item in the playlist.
22:19:05scorche|shceclin: RealAudio is a ton of codecs...
22:19:12BigBambiceclin: The more the merrier in my view
22:19:19scorche|shbut yes, we always welcome more
22:19:28pixelmabluebrother: there were still some action definitions missing in some platform files. I'm currently working on a fix
22:19:58bluebrotherpixelma: nice. I just figured some manuals build as pdf but not html
22:20:11pixelmaI'll also try to fix the fixmes by looking at the old code
22:20:24linuxstbceclin: Sure. You should put together a list of codecs that you plan to implement and apply...
22:20:25scorche|shhow many is "RealAudio" up to now?...7 or 8 codecs?
22:20:30DerPapstceclin: there is a .mod patch in the tracker.
22:20:35pixelmabluebrother: the old recording.tex
22:20:50bluebrotherunfortunately those were missing (as far as I looked)
22:20:53DerPapstceclin: i don't know if it supports any others such as xm or s3m
22:21:01pickyThe PDF manual doesn't look nice in the WPS tags > Images section. The Example 2 is indented.
22:21:11pixelmabluebrother: oh... there goes my plan then

22:21:31preglowi want it commited if there's nothing wrong with it
22:21:43bluebrotherpicky: which manual are you looking at?
22:21:49pixelmapreglow: yes, wanted to take the time for some writing (tracker, forums)

22:22:08DerPapstceclin: maybe a port of libmikmod might be a good idea since it supports loks of differen module music filetypes and performs well on iPods and similar players
22:22:14preglowpixelma: excellent :)
22:22:27linuxstbDon't we have two mod codecs on the tracker now?
22:22:36preglowone based on mikmod
22:22:42pixelmaisn't one a plugin?
22:22:45linuxstbWhich one are you talking about?
22:22:50preglowlinuxstb: the .mod one
22:22:56preglowthe mikmod ones does everything
22:23:01bluebrotherpicky: ah, that. Well, that's caused by the second example being the second paragraph in the section.
22:23:03pickybluebrother: he-he, page 120 as well!
22:23:09pixelmaI'm talking about the codec (not the plugin)
22:23:09bluebrotherbut I agree that it looks ugly.
22:23:17preglowpixelma: it pretty much has to be a plugin, our playback engine has bad support for non-streamed formats
22:23:18ceclinDerPapst: that'd actually be really cool.
22:23:30ceclinI have a ton of old chiptunes that'd be nice to play on the go.
22:24:21linuxstbDerPapst: You mean this?
22:24:21DerPapstsome iPL dev compiled libmikmod for the iPods and it performs excellent. tough i don't know what is required to make it a rockbox codec.
22:24:27pixelmapreglow: the codec one works ok-ish (still has some problems though but I would have thought they are fixable ?)
22:24:28pickybluebrother: is there a latex environment for examples?
22:25:01pickybluebrother: I mean, there surely is, but is there one that should be used in RB manual?
22:25:08bluebrothernot sure if we defined one ... check LatexGuidelines in the wiki
22:25:26DerPapstlinuxstb: heh. i didn't know that existed o. i thought there is only the licence free .mod patch
22:25:28 Join midgey [0] (
22:26:01preglowpixelma: i don't even know what the problems are, but i definitely would guess they are fixable, yes. but it will have the limitation of only being able to play small files until our non-streamed format support is fixed
22:26:53pickybluebrother: there seems to be a special env. Look at e.g. page 110 in the PDF manual.
22:27:07pixelmapreglow: the new one plays larger files (which the old one didn't play). I only have 2 for which that applies though
22:27:28DerPapstbut FS #8806 seems to be a viewer and not a codec...
22:27:40bluebrotheryep, remembered it.

22:31:04pixelmapreglow: why (and where) should it stop now? I admit I have no idea about how it is coded though, can only talk from a user's perspective and my .mods are rather small

22:33:19 Quit phinze ()
22:33:38linuxstbpreglow: Looking at the .mod codec, it uses the data directly from the audio buffer - so as long as it's buffered contiguously it should work (IIUC)
22:33:45pixelmaDerPapst: then you should try the new mod codec too (the "licende-free" one)...
22:34:58pixelmalinuxstb: so the limit is RAM size then?

22:35:47pixelmaor rather playback buffer size
22:35:52ChicoryNow, er, stupid question, but ... now what?

22:38:17BigBambiIs it possible to turn an iPod 5G off when it is charging?
22:38:20ChicoryAnd then just reboot and see what happens?
22:38:29DerPapstBigBambi: nope.
22:38:41BigBambiDerPapst: Cheers, didn't think so
22:38:46gevaertsAfter you copied them, cleanly unmount, make sure hold is off, and unplug
22:39:38BigBambiDerPapst: So I can close this in your view: - the problem is that the charging detection is broken
22:39:45linuxstbpixelma: I've only looked at the code quickly, but that seems to be the case.
22:40:00ChicoryWeeeelllll ...
22:40:06ChicoryIt's back!

22:40:37ChicoryAnd I shall.
22:41:04preglowlinuxstb: doesn't exactly sound like a safe bet
22:41:38gevaertsChicory: no problem. You're the fourth person to need this tool that I know of
22:42:02linuxstbpreglow: No... I wonder how hard it would be for the new buffering code to ensure files are loaded contiguously... Nico_P?
22:42:02ChicoryI wonder if it'd be nice to have that on the main page, or referred to in the Wiki.
22:42:10ChicoryBecause this c250 stuff seems a little buggy.
22:42:30DerPapstBigBambi: seems so. i haven't read the thread though. Maybe if he flips on hold while rockbox displays its shut down message the ipod will actually stay off. However, when he attaches a charger the iPod will boot again.
22:43:06DerPapstBigBambi: it's like pressing a button to wake the iPod up again.
22:43:16BigBambiDerPapst: Yep, but whatever the problem, the answer isn't allowing shutdown during charging, as that isn't possible
22:43:21gevaertsThe problem is that the tool is not really ready. It's c250 specific and won't work on c240, The code is not clean, and it still refers to e200r installation...
22:43:25*Chicory nods.
22:43:30DerPapstBigBambi: yes :-)
22:43:38BigBambiDerPapst: The problem is the erroneous charging detection
22:43:42ChicoryAll I know is that it saved my bacon.
22:43:47gevaertsI actually wonder why no-one with a c240 ever seems to have problems
22:43:55*Chicory shrugs.
22:43:56Bagdergevaerts: or e2x0 owners
22:44:10BigBambigevaerts: I'll try my best soon
22:44:17linuxstbMaybe bugs in Sansa's firmware/bootloader?
22:44:32Bagderit certainly is a flaw no doubt
22:44:37gevaertsBagder: do you actually have reports of *.fmt working on c200 ?
22:44:49Bagdergevaerts: no, not that I can recall
22:45:05gevaertslinuxstb: I would call 'recovery mode does not work if the filesystem is corrupted' a bug, yes
22:45:46DerPapst... which makes the whole recovery mode somewhat useless....
22:46:05gevaertsBagder: I have my doubts about it. It never seems to work for me, so maybe that is the main difference between c200 and e200 for non-working recoveries
22:46:38ChicoryMmm, just a moment, be right back.

22:59:38Y-SignalOh, not wholly related, but is there a simple way to change the loader's behavior so that a split-second error doesn't cost you your rockbox settings when moving the hold switch to the right?

23:38:47InsectoidSure −− but I'm building with cygwin so it'll take a bit.

23:39:32BigBambipixelma: Does it build OK for you/anyone else?
23:39:33gevaertsInsectoid: you can download a build from

23:42:15bluebrotherBigBambi: just tried, works fine for me.
23:42:32BigBambibluebrother: weird. Does the pastebin mean anything to you?
23:43:16pixelmaBigBambi: builds fine for me too (using cygwin). Your error looks unfamiliar to me, maybe it's something in your setup? Is this the first time you tried building the manual?
23:43:44preglowNico_P: sounds sweet, then, but i guess you must add an error condition for when there is not enough room in the buffer for a file at all
23:43:49bluebrotherI'd guess its some features thingy that doesn't run correctly and thus doesn't create the initial document
23:44:02Nico_Ppreglow: there is :)
23:44:13BigBambipixelma: Yes, since I reinstalled. I installed the packages mentioned on the manual how-to page (and before I reinstalled I could build fine), but I'll check them again
23:44:51Nico_Ppreglow: you want to use bufopen with TYPE_ATOMIC_AUDIO
23:45:02Nico_Paudio_load_track already does it
23:45:32linuxstbWhat happens if there isn't enough room?
23:45:34bluebrotherBigBambi: you need to have gcc installed since features.txt was added to the manual build process
23:45:48Nico_Plinuxstb: bufopen will fail
23:45:54BigBambibluebrother: yeah, gcc is there
23:45:56Insectoidgevaerts: Works perfectly.
23:46:04linuxstbNico_P: So what does the playback engine do in that case?
23:46:05InsectoidThank you
23:46:31Nico_Plinuxstb: it will stop buffering. in the new code that means reaching the STATE_FULL state
23:46:47linuxstbSo it will try again later?
23:46:52bluebrotherBigBambi: do you have a file manual/rockbox-build.tex in the build folder?
23:47:03Nico_Pyes, when the buffering thread tells it the buffer is low
23:47:15*gevaerts tells linuxstb that there is indeed most probably a bug in sample_output_stereo()
23:47:21Nico_Pthere could be a problem when trying to add a file that's bigger than the buffer though
23:47:34BigBambibluebrother: Yes, inside the manual sub directory of the build folder
23:47:36linuxstbgevaerts: I already agreed with you ;)
23:48:07gevaertslinuxstb: I know, but we have more evidence now ;) Anyway, I'm not up to fixing it
23:48:48gevaertsI just wonder why nobody noticed before today. That code is 8 days old

23:48:59BigBambibluebrother: Ah, I think it is the latex-ucs that is the problem
23:49:12BigBambibluebrother: I'll do a little more investigating then report back
23:49:55linuxstbgevaerts: I think I know how/where to fix it - I'll need to see if I can recreate the problem though, and probably not tonight...
23:51:13linuxstbI'm assuming the dest buffer in the call to dsp_process() (in playback.c) is only 16-bit aligned. This buffer is provided by pcmbuf_request_buffer(), which needs to ensure things are aligned.
23:52:01gevaertsWe could of course just revert r16717 until it's fixed...
23:53:14*gevaerts sees that preglow also has worked on that file, so he might also be able to fix it

23:57:35preglowsample_output_stereo bug?
23:57:39preglowc or asm?
23:57:56gevaertspreglow: asm
23:58:18preglowgevaerts: arm?
23:58:38gevaertspreglow: yes. Seen on ipod 5g, data abort
23:58:40preglowbuschel probably introduced a bug, then, what is the error? data abort?
