#rockbox log for 2008-04-01

00:00:11bertrikI don't know about step 8 but I'm pretty sure about steps 3 and 4. Anyway the device should not depend on the exact enumeration sequence used by the host.
00:00:32*phinze will use the nutshell as a quick intro, and give the dead tree reference more credence
00:00:32amiconnCompiling can be enabled for all bitmap targets. The #if inside the plugin ensures that it ends up as 0-byte file on colour targets, and hence won't be packaged by 'make zip'
00:00:33DerPapstamiconn: i now too (more or less)
00:01:00DerPapstamiconn: ah didn't know.
00:02:01gevaertsbertrik: I'll do a trace tomorrow to verify step 4 on XP. Step 3 is at least inaccurate (low speed devices...)

You'll find out in time, and for usb audio you don't actually have to care about enumeration (except for the contents of the configuration descriptor). And if you want to give something credence (i.e. it's actually important), use the official spec (

00:21:32Nico_PjhMikeS: hi
00:21:35linuxstbcrzyboyster: Yes, that's been suggested a few times in the past.
00:21:36n1sCould be useful for cariants of the same theme as he states in the request
00:22:00jhMikeSNico_P: hello
00:22:39jhMikeSbtw, I have a 30 gig iPod video in hand - does that one ever exhibit problems like the 60/80?
00:22:50crzyboysterPotentially another one of the new WPS features. It would probably save space on people's hardrives too and make theme packs easier to handle (better for the new site?)

00:23:02Nico_PjhMikeS: you seem to think most of the playback bugs are due to concurrency issues, is there a way I could make them appear more often?
00:23:35gevaertscrzyboyster: the main problem I see is that you can break a theme by removing another one.
00:23:40Nico_PI don't know whether the 30G displays the same issues as the 60/80G
00:24:25DerPapstamiconn: still not able to compile the plugin but installing test build now.

02:20:45Thundercloud_Well to be fair a J2ME port is probably out of the question correct? :P
02:20:56linuxstb_Thundercloud_: Many devices use it, and it's possible (afaik) to use gcc
02:21:21saratoga3iphone is probably the most attractive port imo, since theres so much 3rd party development and hacking already done
02:21:22Thundercloud_linuxstb_: The unfortunate thing is, mine doesn't :P
02:21:37Nico_PDerPapst: there are 15 eligible applications
02:21:48linuxstb_Nico_P: "eligible" ?
02:21:58DerPapstsaratoga3: iirc if you use the official iPhod SDK you cannot access the filesystem directly.
02:22:14Nico_Plinuxstb_: well, 'not yet marked ineligible' :)
02:22:29saratoga3we don't want or need the official sdk
02:22:55DerPapstsaratoga3: true....
02:23:13DerPapsti just thought i'll throw it in here ;-)
02:23:15Nico_Pthe jailbreak might be useful though
02:23:34DerPapstany really good new apps too?
02:23:38saratoga3yes that will be necessary to defeat code signing
02:23:45saratoga3or whatever it is apple uses
02:23:55saratoga3but all that work is done, and the arm tool chain is already available
02:24:13pixelmalinuxstb_: did you see my complaint-wondering-question hours ago?
02:24:36linuxstb_pixelma: No, what time?
02:25:27saratoga3haha the D2's LCD controller can take pixel's in YUV format
02:25:43linuxstb_Yes, that's quite common for these PMPs
02:26:09linuxstb_I think the DM320's LCD controller is similar
02:26:12Nico_Psaratoga3: apparently it's now possible to run homebrew
02:26:23Nico_Pgiven they release the pwnage though
02:26:24pixelmalinuxstb_: around 17:30 in now yesterday's logs
02:26:36saratoga3Nico_P: its been possible for ages
02:26:47saratoga3the new hack just lets you replace the entire OS
02:27:10uklwhat would you understand as sound being "dynamic"? (I don't understand this review...)
02:27:10linuxstb_pixelma: Ah yes, kugel reported the same issue...
02:27:11saratoga3basically lets you flash your own OS instead of just running apps in the OS
02:27:14Nico_Psaratoga3: yeah, that's what I meant. I was thinking of a regular rockbox port, not rockbox as an app
02:27:29saratoga3i think that would be a bad idea
02:27:30linuxstb_pixelma: It's on my to-do list (which I'm just writing...)
02:27:40Nico_Psaratoga3: really? why?
02:27:52saratoga3apple has provided us with all their drivers
02:27:54pixelmalinuxstb_: ok, just wanted to let you know (or know if I remembered wrong)
02:27:58saratoga3not using them would be silly
02:28:11saratoga3additionally, it would not be possible to support the phone part of the iphone
02:28:24LloreanThe iPhone and iPod Touch are basically PDAs anyway.
02:28:35LloreanNot really the target of "Rockbox as a firwmare" in the first place.
02:28:39DerPapstand speed wouldn't be an issue so a native rockbox isn't needed either
02:28:55saratoga3and for what advantage? we gain nothing by trying to reverse engineer hardware that already has what is effectively a wide open unix based OS
02:29:23Nico_Pgood point
02:29:46 Quit Thundercloud (No route to host)
02:30:28saratoga3honestly i hope rockbox eventually moves in that direction
02:30:47Nico_PI hope we keep both directions open :)
02:30:55*Nico_P goes to bed
02:30:58saratoga3reverse engineering hardware consumes a lot of developer time and in the future as portable devices become more advanced and more open it seems like this shouldn't be so necessary
02:31:22Nico_PI hope you're right ;)
02:31:28saratoga3not to mention the increasing complexity of SOCs makes it increasingly difficult
02:32:09 Quit Nico_P ("bed calls")
02:32:40saratoga3i shudder to think how the PP work would have gone on had PP actually been competent to design something useful

02:49:00Lloreansaratoga3: On gigabeat you can already listen to music while playing Rockboy as long as the ROM fits in the plugin RAM
02:49:30saratoga3yeah thats what i figured
02:50:14saratoga3someone do that
02:50:14saratoga3also the easiest GSOC in the world would be that Moto Cellphone port
02:50:23saratoga3the codes already written, just have to get it commited
02:50:32linuxstb_The problem with Doom is DRAM, not IRAM
02:50:40saratoga3argh stupid out of order webclient bug
02:50:46uklHmm.... I wonder if limiting the range to those hardly larger than a pocket lighter made decisions easier...
02:51:18Lloreanukl: Please, this is an on-topic channel pertaining to Rockbox...
02:51:30uklLlorean: sorry. I'm stopping it.
02:51:59saratoga3hmm on second thought maybe i should apply for merging that Moto port
02:52:08Lloreansaratoga3: Regarding the Motorola phone port, it also needs some work to integrate it into the build system, doesn't it?
02:52:31saratoga3if no one else steps up to do Rockbox as an app, I'll change my application
02:52:36saratoga3Llorean: I have no idea, but it wouldn't surprise me
02:52:44saratoga3i think there'd still be a fair amount of work involved regardless
02:53:20LloreanAt the very least, it'd be a great place to start "rockbox as an app", since "app" targets in the build system need to be definable, rather than just special cases of the sim.
02:53:35saratoga3blackhawk didn't seem too intereseted in keeping his code compatable with rockbox
02:53:39saratoga3its probably a real mess
02:54:46saratoga3he did eventually remove the album art patch for us I think
02:55:23 Quit kushal_12_27_200 ("This computer has gone to sleep")
02:55:28saratoga3has anyone applied for the rockbox as an app project?
02:55:46JdGordon|uninoone that gets whats the tas is has
02:56:34LloreanThere was Rockbox as a JAVA app, I believe... ;)
02:56:40saratoga3if I write up an application and submit it could it be held in backup in case someone else wants a crack at it?
02:57:37linuxstb_saratoga3: It would be great if you wanted to do it, but be aware that it's likely to be all the things you don't like, such as modifying Rockbox's build system to allow a new category of targets, and probably abstracting the GUI code to enable Rockbox to interface with the host OS's GUI.
02:57:59saratoga3yes I'll have to think carefully about that
02:58:22saratoga3but I think the host already used SDL so thats probably not too bad
02:58:44linuxstb_IMO it should be more than just porting a sim to a new OS...
02:59:16saratoga3ideally it would revolve around gettnig a framework in place for using rockbox as an app
02:59:32saratoga3build system, cleaning up sim code, etc
03:06:24linuxstb_saratoga3: We still have another week, so yes, if you wanted you could prepare an app and wait until next Monday before submitting.

09:56:20GodEateri.e. you get one transfer, and then have to replug
09:56:24Nico_Pwe just send the tar over and the bootloader untars it
09:57:24jhMikeSbut it leaves it in the filename database anyway
09:59:51Mouser_XWell, for iTunes stuff (from #rb-community), I don't have any idea how the idea is being proposed.
09:59:59Mouser_XBut I don't see why it has to be part of the core.
10:00:10Mouser_XAs in, being able to import stuff is fine.
10:00:28LloreanBecause if it were a plugin, it wouldn't be able to keep the iTunes database in sync with the Rockbox one.
10:00:28Mouser_XCreate an external app/plugin/whatever, that can interact with the Rockbox DB.
10:00:37LloreanYou'd have to manually invoke it.
10:01:02jhMikeSNico_P: in the EVENT_HANDLE_REBUFFER processing you're using queue_send. is there any chance that queue_send to the audio queue will be used? if it does that without a reply first, it will deadlock.
10:01:18scorcheLlorean: yes, but is having it done automatically for those who do use iTunes and rockbox worth it being in the core?
10:01:26Mouser_XOh, you mean for the iTunes DB that's currently on the iPod... I see.
10:01:57scorcheand where do we stop when people ask for other similar things?
10:01:58LloreanMouser_X: Yes. You listen to songs, and it keeps the local iTunes DB playcount updated, which then causes the PC-side one to be in sync when they sync.
10:02:09 Join tvelocity [0] (
10:02:37scorche"well, iTunes 'stuff' gets to be in the core...why cant <proprietary system here> be in there too?"
10:02:45Lloreanscorche: "iTunes" is more or less a software extension of the "iPod" experience. It's nearly integral with the hardware. Just because we cut the tie from it doesn't necessarily mean we should enforce an inability to effectively use the software.
10:02:52Mouser_XI barely use the Winamp ML, and everytime I've used the Rockbox DB, I've not liked it.
10:02:59LloreanIt can be explained as "finishing support for the iPod'
10:03:08Mouser_XSo, I can see uses for it, but I don't use it much.
10:03:26linuxstb_My main worry is maintainability - we only have one developer interested in Rockbox's native database, and I can't see anyone wanting to maintain itunes db support if the student disappears after the summer.
10:04:34B4gderhopefully the student sticks, and the work is made separate enough to not hinder us if it stays untouched after the summer
10:04:36Lloreanlinuxstb_: As far as I see, "support" for the iTunes database should be a system that imports all data from it into our DB when changed, and exports bits back to it. So we don't really interact with it beyond that, and there's little to maintain unless the format changes.
10:04:52Mouser_XI'm all for an external app that can interact with the Rockbox DB, but (iPods excluded), I don't think it needs to be in the core.
10:05:09LloreanB4gder: Well hopefully it'd be in #ifdefs too.
10:05:14linuxstb_Llorean: What if Rockbox's core changes - e.g. the way track change events are handled for example? There are two things interacting...
10:05:16B4gderthat too, yes
10:05:48Lloreanlinuxstb_: That would, though, be recorded in the Rockbox database. The export could get its data from that, rather than from the actual playback system, couldn't it?
10:06:09LloreanThe way I see it, iTunesDB <−−> Rockbox DB <−−> Playback
10:06:12scorchei dont know...i suppose i am just of the opinion that we should not be coddling proprietary systems in the core unless there is a very good reason (which i dont see this being as a manual plugin or program would work fine)
10:07:04pondlifeLlorean: That could be iTunesDB <−−> file tags <−−> Rockbox DB .... ?
10:07:10*jhMikeS just had a soft deadlock when letting an album play to the end and so wonders if that's what just occurred
10:07:43Lloreanpondlife: The iTunesDB isn't necessarily based on file tags, and I think the data the Rockbox DB gets from it should be the data it can't already get from Tags (don't take artist, album, etc from it at all)
10:08:00LloreanMostly playcounts, ratings, and custom playlist stuff.
10:08:25*scorche heads to sleep and resigns to reading logs tomorrow
10:08:41pondlifeI'd like playcounts/ratings to be put back into tags, personally - no idea if that's possible though...
10:08:52 Nick dionoea_ is now known as dionoea (
10:09:01pondlifeI like the per-track info to be stored with the track
10:09:24Lloreanpondlife: In regards to iTunes though, they relate to two different files (the one in the library on the PC, and the one on the player)
10:09:35LloreanAt least, as far as I know.
10:09:54pondlifeUrgh, that's not nice
10:10:05pondlifeSorry, never used iTunes
10:10:28pondlifeI was more thinking that you're only lacking the bridge between iTunes and file tags
10:10:46pondlifeplus iTunes and playlists
10:11:35 Quit J ("leaving")
10:11:50LloreanThe way I see it, at least, is for the data we can't extract from file tags.
10:12:12LloreanAnd for writing back the data they expect to be present on the host when things are done.
10:12:28pondlifeWould EXTM3U be any help?
10:13:14LloreanDon't think so.
10:13:39pondlifeAre there standards to store ratings/playcounts in tags?
10:14:01LloreanWhether they are or aren't, it wouldn't solve the problem with keeping the iTunes database up to date.

10:14:22Lloreanscorche: Well, assuming software USB, one possibility would be to run the update, as a plugin, before USB connection if the feature's enabled, I'd imagine.

10:14:53Lloreanpondlife: An iTunesDB <−−> tags? If such an application existed, it wouldn't need to be part of Rockbox at all.

10:18:00B4gderI'd love that

10:20:27B4gdermarkun: I'll just enjoy seeing your progress in the mean time! ;-)
10:20:40markunB4gder: don't expect anything this week (exams)
10:20:54Lloreanlinuxstb_: You might want to also suggest it to Songbird or some similar app, so they can add it as an SoC idea from their side. :-P
10:20:56jhMikeSNico_P: that both threads send synchronous messages to each other
10:23:08pixelmaB4gder: could you look into the voice file link issue (missing in the "Daily builds and voices" pacge)?
10:23:27pixelmapage too
10:23:31Nico_PjhMikeS: yo might be onto something... there's a queue_send in what that audio_flush message will cause
10:23:50B4gderpixelma: working on it right now
10:23:50Nico_Pand the queue_reply only comes after everything has been done
10:24:04pixelmaB4gder: nice, thanks :)
10:24:17Nico_PI actually don't even see the queue_reply
10:25:28Nico_PjhMikeS: in case you haven't seen it, the flush message causes audio_invalidate_tracks() > audio_fill_file_buffer() > audio_load_track > buf_request_buffer_handle > queue_send to the buffering queue
10:25:28jhMikeSNico_P: via bufgetid3 in audio_check_new_track can call queue_send to the buffer thread (through one really long string of function calls)
10:25:41Nico_Pso there are two cases :/
10:26:05Nico_Pactually the one I cited above seems more likely to happen to me
10:26:42Nico_PjhMikeS: when is the queue_reply sent?
10:27:33jhMikeSif you haven't replied explicitely already, it's done automatically when waiting on the queue again
10:27:37 Quit framo ("moo")
10:27:52Nico_Pok. I guess it should be dones right before calling audio_invalidate_tracks()
10:27:57jhMikeSdoes that need to be synchronous?
10:28:12Nico_PI'm not even sure
10:28:37Nico_Pit can probably not be...

14:52:12LinusNhow would you handle larger alphabets and lower-case?
14:52:36Nico_PATM I don't ;)
14:53:28Nico_Pbut I guess there could be a toggle to switch between different screens. we wouldn't want to clutter the screen
14:53:43Nico_Pselecting letters would be hard with too many

15:04:44amiconnBagder: Iiuc this creative problem shouldn't affect us. It seems he adapted existing driver packages (i.e. Creative's code) to run on another OS and other soundcards
15:04:52LinusNthe main menu fills barely 1/4 of the screen
15:05:01pixelmaif they just hadn't picked such a "skinny" font... I think nimbus is much more readable at the same font height (because it's boldish)
15:05:47*Nico_P prefers boldish too

15:05:58ByeongKeongevaerts: you are probably on meeting, see you tomorrow, i'll bring more detailed application.
15:07:03peturByeongKeon: there are more mentors around than just gevaerts...
15:07:33Nico_Pthe guy was hacking binary drivers to enable features creative had disabled for vista
15:07:36BagderrI think we're 12 mentors signed up or something
15:07:45Bagderrcan't look right now
15:07:47*gevaerts is not in his meeting yet :)
15:08:01Nico_Pthey also didn't like the fact that he was requesting donations for his work
15:08:33Bagderrdid he distribute creative's drivers then?
15:08:44Nico_Phe distributed modified versions
15:08:55Bagderrok, then I see their view of this
15:09:12gevaertsNico_P: have a look at (25MB). If that works, it can work in rockbox...
15:09:22Nico_Pso they're completely within their rights, but the fact of disabling hardware features in drivers is very disputable
15:09:23ByeongKeonpetur : sorry, I completely forget that.
15:09:39Bagderrand of course that's exactly why we've always made an effort never to distribute other's stuff in Rockbox

15:17:04peturBagderr: does the google page show a list of mentors oris it just in our wiki?
15:17:44Bagderrpetur: I think the list at Google's is only available to mentors
15:18:48gevaertsBagderr: from what I understand there is an application template somewhere that gets automatically shown when a students submits an application or something. Maybe our gsoc admin could copy the wiki template there
15:19:06Bagderraha only admins can see that
15:19:14*Bagderr reveals his status...
15:19:36Bagderrgevaerts: yes, but that field is so stupidly done anyway so I doubt it'll help a lot
15:20:12Bagderrbut yeah, I should put something there
15:20:12markunBagderr: according to Creative we are probably also selling a product to anyone who donates to us after downloading rockbox, don't you think?
15:20:44gevaertsmarkun: we don't give them Creative-copyrighted code
15:20:49Bagderrmarkun: well in their case the guy seems to provide Creative's code
15:20:52Bagderrwe don't
15:21:05Bagderrso I can see how he could be argued to "sell" Creative code
15:21:14LambdaCalculus37Yes, all of our code is written from scratch, correct?
15:21:38LambdaCalculus37So what's Creative so worried about?
15:21:52BagderrLambdaCalculus37: we're comparing us with the Creative driver case mentioned above
15:22:18LambdaCalculus37Bagderr: Ahh.
15:22:20peturLambdaCalculus37: the modified drivers enabled features that they didn't want enabled for certain cards
15:22:37Bagderrwell, _that_ we might be able to do too
15:22:52LambdaCalculus37petur: But if they didn't want this to happen, they should've enabled those features to begin with.
15:22:54peturfeatures in their code, I think
15:23:13LambdaCalculus37Is there anything we have that the Creative players don't?
15:23:27*LambdaCalculus37 goes through the checklist
15:23:31Bagderra lot I'd guess
15:23:31 Quit ByeongKeon ()
15:23:40Bagderrbut not that they would have a case about
15:23:55Bagderr"we decided not to enable doom but you guys did!"
15:24:06markunBagderr: I can understand that they don't like him to modify their drivers, but I don't see what the problem is with people donating money to that guy.
15:24:26LambdaCalculus37markun: I doubt he pockets any of that money very much.
15:24:26Bagderrmarkun: I think the big mistake was for him to distribute their stuff
15:24:37LambdaCalculus37Like us, it's probably just for bandwidth and server costs.
15:24:50Bagderrhe should've made a patch tool and distributed that
15:25:03Bagderrit would've been a lot harder for creative to argue against
15:25:21LambdaCalculus37I think that would've been a smarter way of distributing the enhancements, rather than directly touching upon the drivers.
15:25:50Bagderrof course it would also make it slightly harder for users
15:25:51LambdaCalculus37Bagderr: And yes, Creative wouldn't really have any ground to stand on if he did so.
15:26:44LambdaCalculus37Bagderr: Also, didn't we have to do a similar thing with the iriver H100/H300 firmwares?
15:26:52Bagderrwe do, yes
15:27:09LambdaCalculus37Distribute an external app that patches the firmware with the bootloader for Rockbox, which you then flash back to your device.
15:27:41*Bagderr pats us on our back - oh man we are good! ;-)
15:27:57LambdaCalculus37See, we did the smart thing!
15:28:19LambdaCalculus37Just download an app, point it to the drivers, click Patch... done!
15:28:26*JdGordon points to the mi4 collection on and thinks the halo needs polishing...
15:28:42Bagderrthey're not distributed by Rockbox...
15:29:02Bagderrand they're unaltered
15:29:05JdGordoni didnt say whos halo...
15:29:12LambdaCalculus37And never removed from the package. :)

18:23:12ChristopherWI have some WPS files that used to work a few days ago (build r16873 or earlier) but now some of the images don't display (progress bar, background, etc.). Did something change recently with the loading/displaying of bitmaps in the WPS?
18:26:12pixelmayes, the WPS parser got a little stricter again, check for syntax errors like missing closing | . Actually such a "broken" WPS shouldn't show up but it still does but not the things which are wrong (and in my experience the backdrop was missing too)
18:27:22toffe82scorche|sh: what are you building ?
18:27:24ChristopherWI looked at the .wps file and it seems to be correct, eg, it uses "%X|backdrop.bmp|", just as the manual says

19:18:25pixelmaChristopherW: the WPS parser got stricter by time. Probably the theme was working when it was created.
19:19:21domonokyChristopherW: test plugins are not compiled by default, you have to add it to the correct SOURCES file
19:19:22ChristopherWwell, there were a few letters that were not preceded with "%" but were supposed to, so the WPS ended up showing "m b y" or something like that
19:19:36ChristopherW... instead of the current date
19:20:13domonokyChristopherW: thats because the WPS tag for the date has changed over time :-)
19:20:14pixelmathe tags for clock formatting also changed

19:22:05woosterI'm new to RockBox, I recently put it on my Sansa c260 and love it. You all have done an amazing job. I have a retail question that I hope isn't out of line...
19:22:08woosterI would like to get a sansa "e2xx" model for the larger screen, but I notice that there are two flavors and RockBox only works on the ver. 1 (firmware 1.xx, not firmware 3.xx) flavor. has refurb Sansa e2xx models but they say "supports audible file format" in the description, which is one of the disqualifying identifiers for Rockbox. Also I note that Rockbox lists $40-70 dollars for price range on these E series players and I can't find one that price
19:22:41BigBambiwooster: Audible doesn't have to mean v2
19:22:51woosterOh, ok that's good to know.
19:22:57BigBambiSome people have received a v1 whilst it says audible support on the box
19:23:17woosterinteresting.. here's what the page says btw : "Compatibility: This e260 supports MP3, WMA and Audible formats with up to 20 hours of battery life.
19:23:20BigBambiHaving said that, I think the chances are it will be a v2 with audible advertising, it just isn't quite 100%
19:23:32woosterBigBambi, thanks.
19:23:40ChristopherWlikewise, sometimes the player says "e280r" and "Rhapsody" on the back, but it's not really a Rhapsody model.
19:23:56woosterI have to say I just recently bought my c260 at refurb and was lucky that by chance it was ver1
19:24:00BigBambiwooster: I suspect that probably is v2, but it is next to pimpossible to say without knowing the firmware version
19:24:25ChristopherWI nearly pulled my hair out trying to put the e200r version of Rockbox on my non-Rhapsody Sansa!

22:05:54bluebrotheryeps ... I also thought about consolidating all mi4 installs. H10 and m:robe are pretty similar
22:06:32bluebrothermaybe merge all firmware-based installs. Gigabeat is also a candidate.
22:06:41bluebrotherthen there's only the three patchers left.
22:06:52*Bagder is just stupid
22:07:26domonokybluebrother: sounds good :-)
22:07:55domonokybut be carefull, there are subtile differences in the firmware installers :-)
22:08:00bluebrotherhmm, if I'm right it would be possible to recognize all mi4 bootloaders based on the RBBL magic.

22:09:20Bagderbluebrother: rockbox is using 01f8 to 01ff for metadata, those bytes are unused normally
22:10:02bluebrotherBagder: great. So I can check those to identify the bootloader file :)
22:10:24bluebrotherso the mi4 header is always 0x200 bytes?
22:11:00bluebrotherok, thanks.

22:11:15ChristopherWI know this is off-topic, but anyway... There seems to be an off-by-one error in the current playlist when I try to move a song: when I long-select a song and select Move, the *previous* song is highlighted as the one to move. This is in r16918, and in at least r16901, but it's not in r16873 or earlier (I think)

23:35:41tge101that was my concern this whole conversation
23:35:52DerPapst(the reasons why one should always have backups)
23:35:53kugelDerPapst: I bet he's going to sue you for helping him
23:36:24DerPapstat least here is the dd tool for windows with a small and nice documentation
23:36:27ChristopherWI'm just curious, but where can you get a backup MBR for the ipod's hard drive?
23:36:32bluebrotherDerPapst: that's the reason why I wanted him to look at the mbr itself first (and make a backup of it)
23:36:49DerPapstbluebrother: ah figured.
23:36:49gevaertsChristopherW: on the rockbox website :)
23:36:56bluebrotherbut I don't know of a good fdisk tool on windows
23:36:58stripwax_tg101 - So: partition table is corrupted or missing. itunes restore will almost certainly fix but you will lose everything. dd will most likely work, but you might lose everything. You will need to take your pick
23:37:19DerPapstbluebrother: iirc there is nothing like fdiks for windows. unforunately
23:37:29ChristopherWso with the backup mbr, he just has to do "dd if=mbr of=/dev/<whatever>"
23:37:31kugelDerPapst: Is that the official page? Or just the win32 port page?
23:37:33bluebrotherDerPapst: do you remember the DOS fdisk? ;-)
23:37:34tge101so dd is my best bet?
23:37:44DerPapstkugel: the win32 port page
23:37:45ChristopherWDOS fdisk sucks
23:37:47bluebrothertge101: yes.
23:37:54DerPapstbluebrother: heh yes :-)
23:38:07gevaertsdd can make a backup first of course
23:38:16bluebrotheruse it with care, it can destroy everything. Maybe it can resurrect your data also.
23:38:21*kugel wonders if tge101 trtied chkdsk on his ipod
23:38:27stripwax_thinking that tge101 won't have a backup mbr to hand..
23:38:34bluebrothergevaerts: and then decode the MBR using a hex editor ;)
23:38:45stripwax_tge101 - what model/generation/capacity did you say it was again?
23:38:49DerPapstyay.. sound like fun
23:38:51ChristopherWone time I had a corrupted file system volume (its name was untypable), but DOS fdisk requires you to type in a file system's volume name to delete it!
23:38:51gevaertsbluebrother: using fdisk on linux of course
23:39:02tge101its a 60gb photo
23:39:14tge1014g i guess
23:39:21tge101err 4gen
23:40:21DerPapsttge101: get the 0.5 version of dd
23:40:25bluebrothergevaerts: yep, but he seems to be resistant to using a linux cd.
23:40:39 Quit TheCompWiz ("Leaving.")
23:40:39gevaertsbluebrother: he can send the mbr to someone
23:40:43ChristopherWalso, with the windows dd, how do you access device files (/dev/whatever)?
23:40:58tge101ok i got it
23:41:06 Quit Jon-Kha (Remote closed the connection)
23:41:37ChristopherWoh, nvm. I see that it's a weird syntax like "\\.\a:" for the A drive device
23:42:08bluebrothergevaerts: oh, wouldn't that be too easy? ;)
23:42:17tge101where do i go from here?
23:42:42ChristopherWhe can paste the hexdump of the mbr here (I'm only kidding)
23:43:13*bluebrother notices that dd can "decode" the volume to a drive letter
23:43:17scorche|shChristopherW: you arent helping...
23:43:40ChristopherWI'm guessing you could run "dd if=\\.\e: of=mbr.bin bs=512 count=1" or something similar
23:43:56ChristopherWthat assumes the ipod shows up as drive "e"
23:44:04DerPapsttge101: open cmd.exe
23:44:18DerPapstand cd to dd.exe
23:44:23amiconnAccessing \\.\e: would return the start sector of the partition, not sector 0 of the device
23:44:32tge101im there
23:44:34ChristopherWhm, you're probably right
23:44:53DerPapsttge101: run: dd −−list and pt the output at
23:44:55amiconnWindows dd needs raw internal windows device names
23:45:03scorche|sh< scorche|sh> ChristopherW: you arent helping...
23:45:09bluebrotheryou need to access the raw drive, i.e. something like \\.\PhysicalDrivex
23:45:14ChristopherWok, I'll shut up now
23:45:39amiconnThe syntax isn't all that weird, it's simply an UNC path, and the "." stands for "localhost"
23:47:32tge101got the dd −−list, not sure how to do that output
23:48:39stripwax_go to pastebin website and paste it in there
23:48:43 Quit Thundercloud (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
23:49:04DerPapsteither "dd.exe −−list > output.txt" or just copy it off the cmd window
23:49:25*DerPapst might be confused
23:49:39tge101i cant copy from the cmd window
23:49:50tge101(that i know of anyways)
23:49:53ChristopherWright-click and select "Mark"
23:50:11ChristopherWhighlight the text and press enter (I think)
23:50:12 Join EspeonEefi [0] (i=espeonee@CERULEANCITY.MIT.EDU)
23:50:25kugelDerPapst: I thought you didn't wanna help him :=
23:50:31ChristopherWthen it should be copied to the clipboard
23:51:48stripwax_tge101 : "dd.exe −−list > output.txt" will give you a file in the current directory called output.txt, you can paste that file into the pastebin site
23:51:59stripwax_(DerPapst's suggestion in fact, oops)
23:52:41*stripwax_ heads out
23:52:44DerPapstor just do 'dd −−list > output.txt'

23:56:10DerPapstjust noticed that too. so i guess the mbr is foobar
23:56:21ChristopherWis your computer's main hard drive also 60GB?
23:56:42Y-SignalHeyo, anybody else experience this bug where the scrollwheel of a 5G ipod won't respond after making a selection in the database by pressing right/next, and you have to press a button to make the wheel work again?
