#rockbox log for 2008-04-29

00:00:07PaulJamthe official build has viewports, so if your wps uses the scrolling margins patch you'll have to modify it to work with the curent build
00:00:30*amiconn is rather confused now by the linker :(
00:00:51bertrikstill working on the UIE stuff?
00:01:28*^Parrot^ is not a coder just a new user of rockbox
00:01:35*bertrik knows nothing about that
00:01:46amiconnSomehow the linker tries to find crt0-pp-bl.o outside librockbox.a
00:02:11^Parrot^so If I see a theme that needs the scroller patch, it is not likely to work with the latest build?
00:02:15linuxstbThat's probably because it's specified in the linker script
00:02:15amiconnIf I remove firmware/ from the list of include paths, it complains in cannot find target/arm/crt0-pp-bl.o
00:02:33amiconnBut .a files don't include paths afaik
00:03:08amiconnIf I specify system.o explicitly on the command line, it works, but that's dirty
00:03:52amiconnAnd if I specify crt0-pp-bl.o explicitly (without removing the include path), it complains about duplicate symbols - obviously it tries to link that thing twice...
00:04:08bertrikare you sure crt0-pp-bl.o is actually inside librockbox.a?
00:04:20linuxstbMaybe it's something to do with the way the library is build - it's finding main (and UIE when added) in the bootloader .o, but not symbols in the .a file
00:04:43amiconnarm-elf-ar -t librockbox.a shows it
00:04:57PaulJam^Parrot^: you don't need to be a coder to modify the wps. the format is documented here:
00:05:18^Parrot^what about bmp resize? should I make them 200x200 176x176 100x100? or make bmps at all 3 sizes depending on the theme?
00:06:19^Parrot^PaulJam: I was not planning on doing any wps work at all. I just wanted to find a theme that I liked (I hve found a few) some require bmp resize, scrillomng and/orAA
00:06:52 Quit EspeonEefi ("さよなら")
00:07:33PaulJam^Parrot^: i think the easiest way is to try the WPS. if you see a very basic text only WPS, then it doesn't work with the official build.
00:08:16^Parrot^Trial and error... o the days of punch cards come flying back to my brain
00:08:36^Parrot^reading that wps page thanks
00:09:04gevaertsaustriancoder: volume seems the same as on my previous build (17229), but I can't hear any difference at all between -6 and +9 on 17229, so I'm afraid you'll need another tester for that.
00:09:17amiconnThe linker script specifies an explicit INPUT()
00:09:23^Parrot^at the risk of starting a war, what is the current status on a jpg patch or modified build that does suppor jpg?
00:09:25austriancodergevaerts: change bass settings
00:09:31*gevaerts either has wrong music or wrong ears for this
00:10:01gevaertsaustriancoder: I changed Settings -> Sound Settings -> Bass

00:11:35amiconnAha, hmm....
00:11:38austriancodergevaerts: okay.. I think i have found the probelm.. wm8751 defineds [SOUND_BASS] = {"dB", 1, 15, -60, 90, 0}, the probelm is now the 15.. I think i will revert this change until i/we found a good way to handle 1.5 db steps
00:14:18*gevaerts decides to never volunteer again for sound tests. You need to hear differences for that...
00:15:11*linuxstb is reminded of the first version of the X5 audio driver that had something like no sound above about 10KHz - and no-one noticed for a while...
00:15:29Bagderyeah, I used that...
00:15:32gevaertsIn a way I'm lucky. I can use lower bitrates :)
00:15:42Bagder... without noticing
00:15:44linuxstbBagder: Yes, I was thinking of your ears ;)

00:42:20DerPapstsince this code has to be decrypted again.
00:43:06bluefoxxwould it help if someone pestered apple for the code?
00:44:09DerPapstSh0rtnArm3d: most people in here are from europe and it's ~Midnight - 1am here currently. But normally bootloader installation should work fine from rbutil. Have you tried to restore your Ipod before?

00:53:40DerPapstprobably not.

01:00:14amiconnHah, finally I understand what causes the UIE problem
01:00:26amiconnUnfortunately I'm not sure about the best solution yet
01:00:59Nico_Pamiconn: may I ask what UIE means?
01:01:10Nico_P(and congratulations btw ;) )
01:01:11amiconnUnexpected Interrupt or Exception
01:01:56amiconnThe problem has nothing to do with that specific function, btw, but only with how it's referenced, and how the linker collects the needed object files
01:03:22amiconnHmm, seems the fix is even nearly trivial
01:03:25*amiconn verifies
01:03:36DerPapstamiconn: :-)
01:05:43amiconnAh, yes
01:05:55amiconnIt's definitely an internal file order problem in the linker
01:06:32amiconnThe problem is that both the Makefile specifies objects and libs on the command line, and the .lds specifies the crt0 object with INPUT()
01:07:00amiconnObviously files specified with INPUT() are *always* processed *after* all files and libs specified on the command line
01:07:06DerPapstdid you get that problem for all targets?
01:07:25amiconnSo symbols needed by crt0 *only* won't be included from libs
01:08:21amiconnThere is a simple solution though - the startup file can be specified in the .lds by using STARTUP() instead of INPUT() - that causes it to be processed before all other files, including those specified on the command line
01:09:08amiconnSo no more reference hackaround necessary
01:09:49amiconnDerPapst: Not all targets were affected by this problem, because the object(s) referenced by crt0 were already linked in by coincidence
01:10:24DerPapstheh. Impressive that his coincidence worked so long.
01:10:35amiconnAfaik the problem exists for gigabeat S (hack in SVN), meizu, and logikdax (markun and linuxstb wanted to see it solved)
01:11:21amiconnYou can easily recreate it e.g. for PP by just putting b UIE at the very end of crt0-pp-bl.S, and then trying to compile a bootloader...
01:11:54 Nick fxb is now known as fxb__ (
01:11:56 Quit Sh0rtnArm3d ()
01:12:35amiconnIt will fail due to the missing UIE symbol, unless you also edit for PP and replace the INPUT() with STARTUP()
01:12:39 Quit zajacattack ("CGI:IRC (Ping timeout)")
01:16:12*DerPapst doesn't know what UIE does and better leaves crt0-pp-bl.S alone :-P
01:16:47amiconnIt's the function that is called if an exception or an unmapped interrupt occurs
01:17:23amiconnIf you put that call at the very end, it won't be called at all. Furthermore, that's just a compilation test, nothing that needs to be installed on target...
01:17:25DerPapstah. an exception handler od some sort
01:17:48amiconnYes, that thing that displays all those data aborts, undefined instructions etc

01:27:32*amiconn can't test-build a beast bootloader
01:27:45DerPapstshall i?
01:27:52amiconnNo multilibs-enabled arm-elf-gcc in my cygwin...
01:28:37DerPapsti have that multilibs-enabled arm-elf-gcc in my cygwin. If you give me a patch i can test
01:35:11*DerPapst builds
01:35:33*amiconn also started a bunch of builds (most of his targets)
01:36:44DerPapstdoes make soetimes die for you? it sits sometimes there not doing anything for hours. I have to kill it then and start again :-/
01:37:56DerPapstworked fine and without warnings :-)
01:38:06amiconnIt only does this when trying the ctrl-C a build. Sometimes this still leaves subshells or 'make' processes running, and then a subsequent 'make' becomes very confused
01:39:05DerPapstshall i try any other bootloaders?
01:39:06amiconnBut as long as no zombies are running, 'make' never hangs for me, even when scheduling a bunch of builds in a long command line that needs ~3 hours to build or so
01:39:26amiconnThe S is the only one in SVN that uses the hack
01:39:52DerPapstah.. i have multiple cygwin shells open if i compile for multiple targets. maybe that's the problem
01:40:12amiconnHmm, it shouldn't, although I never tried that
01:40:24DerPapstfeels faster :-)
01:41:00*amiconn always uses make && make zip && cd ../2nd_target && make && make zip && cd ../3rd_target etc
01:41:35DerPapsti bet building in parallel works faster...
01:41:43amiconnI doubt that
01:41:52amiconnI would even expect it to be slower
01:42:17*DerPapst should test that when bored.
01:43:05amiconnAnyway, compiling for the whole collection is a good job to run overnight

06:44:53RomanianWell, I've been having this problem with my iAudio X5L, started about 24 hours ago. It won't play sound. I can get it to load, everything works fine, but it won't play sound. It shows that it's playing, even at full volume, but nothing comes out of the speakers. Once every 20 loads or so, sound will play, and I will be able to change the volume for about 30 seconds. After this period has passed, I can't change the volume level. Happen

06:46:49RomanianAlso, the distinctive fuzzy "pop" sound when I boot it is absent.

07:03:14RomanianDoes it give any messages?
07:03:55Lameznope, my file do not show up, then when I change the general settings to show all files, they show up, how come they are not supported? Would this be consider a bug?

09:45:36LloreanWell, nobody should put their playlist catalog in the root. But if the option of a configurable prefix for /dynamic.m3u8 in the save screen is added, it'd need a way to be cleared.

09:47:27LloreanI have no problem with it having a configurable prefix that can be set to /playlists, but I don't think the two should be forcibly bound.

09:48:48JdGordonso why wouldnt the dynamic one fit there?
09:48:58LloreanI think you're missing the point.
09:49:10JdGordonpondlife: sticking the option there would only be usable with a nasty hack...
09:49:17LloreanRight now when you try to save the dynamic one, the default path is "/dynamic.m3u8"
09:49:34LloreanHe wants to change the default path to "<wherever your catalog is>/dynamic.m3u8"
09:49:48JdGordonyeah, ok... so whats the problem?
09:49:57pondlifeJdGordon: A dedicated context menu isn't necessarily a nasty hack.
09:50:06LloreanMeaning that for those of us who *don't* save our playlist into the catalog folder (I keep my normal playlists in various parts of the file tree) but rather use the catalog for various types of "Favorites" lists (playlists I modify as I listen)
09:50:16Lloreanwe have to clear that chunk out of the path every single time.
09:50:29pondlifeAlthough you'd proabably have to have "File View" as a sub-option
09:50:36LloreanWhy not just have a second option "Set as default playlist save folder"

09:52:13pondlifeWhy not allow the "Files" context menu to be the same as for any directory, plus add "File View"?
09:52:26pondlifeReferring to the root, of course.
09:52:55LloreanJdGordon: For me, absolutely not. I want my playlist catalog just to have a few mixed playlists. My dynamic playlist, on the other hand, almost always goes in a rather deep subdirectory and is a result of me reorganizing files with bad names so they play in the right order.
09:52:58pondlife(i.e. no Rename/Delete)
09:53:13LloreanJdGordon: Why is having a second option a *bad* idea for this, exactly?
09:53:51pondlifeIs it possible to currently create a directory in the root?
09:53:59JdGordonI'm not saying it is...
09:54:05JdGordonpondlife: yes
09:54:22LloreanJdGordon: Well not having a second option makes people who actually *like* the current behaviour have a harder time.
09:54:24JdGordonand I'm not sure how many of the regular context menu items should be shown
09:54:54pondlifeAh..Create Dir in a context menu doesn't act how I'd expect.
09:54:55LloreanIt's basically shoving one group's problem onto another group, whereas a second option means both groups can be happy.
09:55:06pondlifeIt creates alongside the selected dir, not within it.
09:55:14JdGordonpondlife: yeah
09:55:30Lloreanpondlife: Isn't the option available on files too?
09:55:42JdGordonit is a valid point though that you cant set / as a rec folder
09:55:47pondlifeYes, but I wasn't expecting that
09:55:52JdGordonor do some of the playlist stuff on the folder
09:55:57pondlifeNot a biggie, just less intuitive
09:56:17LloreanMaybe you should be able to scroll up to the Folder Name at the top, and put those kinds of things in its context menu? :-P
09:56:48JdGordonno, that wouldnt work
09:58:15*JdGordon inclined to say "leave this for the devcon" :)

10:02:28pondlifeThe settings top level is a bit controversial, but sensible enough
10:03:04LloreanReplaygain isn't a "Sound" setting, since it's entirely dependent on the presence of metadata.
10:03:05pondlifeCurrently I tend to just ignore the top menu and go straight into General Settings most of the time
10:03:16pondlifeIt affects what you hear though
10:03:26LloreanNot necessarily
10:03:34LloreanIt affects if we interpret a certain tag during playback.
10:03:51LloreanIt won't affect other sounds at all (for example mpegplayer, radio, untagged recordings, etc)
10:04:15pondlifeDoes dithering affect the radio?
10:04:26LloreanDithering only affects digital audio, right?
10:04:40pondlifeSo that's not a sound setting either... ;p
10:04:52JdGordonboth should go under playback?
10:04:58LloreanIn my opinion, yes.
10:05:01pondlifeI prefer both under Sound
10:05:10pondlifeBut, hey, that's just my preference
10:05:13LloreanThey don't affect "sound output" but rather "digital playback"
10:05:19JdGordonXML MENUS!!
10:05:27pondlifeSame as stereo width ?
10:05:34pondlifeCrossfeed too.
10:05:48JdGordonthey do affect the sound though...
10:05:49pondlifeUsers think of those as affecting sound output
10:06:11pondlifei.e. there's no need to get technical on the playback/sound distinction.
10:06:16LloreanThere needs to be a distinction between ones that affect "all sounds", ones that affect "files played back" and settings that actually affect *how* we play back files
10:06:36LloreanSo people don't report bugs on things not working when they're not supposed to work?
10:06:54LloreanIf something is intentionally not going to work in a certain case, it should be clear to users that it's not going to work in that case.
10:07:14JdGordonin that case... I tihnk shuffle, repeat, nextdir and party mode should go into playlists
10:07:15pixelmaLlorean: setting the recording directory would be "clear recording directory" which is in the recording settings, root was made the default for this case

10:07:48*pondlife jokes as he has cardboard ears.
10:07:57Lloreanpondlife: Crossfeed would be more likely for someone to spot, I think
10:08:03pondlifeAnd poor FM reception..
10:08:13LloreanJdGordon: And auto-change directory.
10:08:21JdGordonthat was next dir
10:08:33pondlifeTrue, but I don't think there's a need to make a technical distinction here - better to make options easy to find
10:08:46*Llorean disagrees.
10:08:47pondlifeIf I were looking for Replaygain, I'd go into Sound Settings
10:09:15LloreanPeople can look in the manual if they can't find something.
10:09:22JdGordonsound - stuff that generally affects the output, playback - stuff which forcibly changes the output (?), playlists - the rest?
10:09:26LloreanThey won't know to look in the manual if they assume something should work, and it seems to have no effect.

10:10:16JdGordonnot really sure how cuesheet and fits in that description though
10:10:18LloreanThe UI should be easy, but not at the cost of misleading the user.
10:10:43pondlifeHence this is a matter for a devcon - it's ultimately our opinions
10:10:44JdGordonhmm.. maybe they should both be in playlists also?
10:10:55LloreanI think if you put "Bass" and "Crossfeed" next to each other in the menu, the user will expect both to work under identical conditions
10:11:31pondlifeThey don't. But they currently are alongside each other.
10:11:36pondlifeI don't hear a bug report
10:11:45pondlifeSo, I don't think many users have been misled.
10:11:48LloreanAnd I'd been on a working assumption that Crossfeed should work on all audio because I'd never stopped to think about it.
10:12:04Lloreanpondlife: What is this: "It's okay if we mislead them as long as they don't complain about it?"
10:12:26pondlifeNo, more like "The layout of the menu is not misleading."
10:12:37LloreanAre you saying it's obvious from the menu crossfeed won't affect the radio?
10:12:38pondlifeYou are reading it too technically
10:12:47pondlifeNo, but that's the sort of thing the manual should cover
10:12:57LloreanI thought they shouldn't need the manual..
10:13:03pondlifeThe menu is about finding things, not techy stuff
10:13:21pondlifeThey can if they want the details, but they shouldn't care that much
10:13:22LloreanAnd people still find replaygain just fine under playback already
10:13:44pondlifeI'm not particularly fussed. you can move it to Playback if you want, it's a wiki
10:14:11pondlifeBut given the choice Playback or Sound, I think of Replaygain as Sound
10:14:24pondlifeJust how my inexact human brain is wired I guess
10:14:27LloreanBut it doesn't affect all sound.
10:14:30LloreanNot even remotely
10:14:37pondlifeI don't give a flying one
10:15:15LloreanPart of a UI's purpose is to convey information to improve the user experience.
10:15:16pondlifeLike I said, change it if you want
10:15:27LloreanOn their first try they *might* have to spend a couple seconds looking to find replaygain.
10:15:41LloreanBut it's also quite possible they learn that its somewhere else, so it doesn't work like Bass

10:16:10pondlifeOK, so we move all the dsp stuff (digital audio only) into Playback?
10:16:26LloreanHaven't got that far yet.
10:16:40LloreanSince a lot of the playback stuff, as JdGordon mentioned, could really be playlist stuff.
10:17:13LloreanWe could leave the "Playback" menu, and Sound could have under it "Digital Audio" with the DSP stuff?
10:17:23pondlifeI agree with that - certainly the auto-change dir, repeat and shuffle stuff should be playlist
10:17:35LloreanThen it's in the more obvious "Sound" location, but in a submenu that makes it clear it's only for digital audio.
10:17:54LloreanThat also keeps our sound menu from being too long.
10:18:18pondlifeI agree
10:18:36pondlifeThe danger is that we end up with deep menus again - I'd prefer long over deep.
10:18:39JdGordonwe dont want menus to go too deep also...
10:18:51markunwill the bass and treble options be in different places on players with hw tone controls and the ones using software?

10:19:45JdGordonmarkun: the distinction was more which things affect only the digital audio.. not wheather its hardware r software controlled
10:20:07*JdGordon slow tonight
10:20:07pondlifeLike I said, this is about humans, not technical details
10:20:10Lloreanpondlife: I don't think deep menus are a bad things, as long as the deeper options tend toward "set once and forget" like replaygain, dithering, crossfeed, etc.
10:20:24pondlifeLlorean: You may set once, others may not
10:20:43LloreanYou don't set them more than once per playlist, though.
10:20:44pondlifeI change stuff with .cfg files mainly, but certainly change crossfeed often
10:20:45 Quit Synergy6 (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
10:21:11pondlifeEither way, one of our current menu problems is too much depth, IMHO
10:21:16Lloreanthe whole point of crossfeed, arguably, is that it shouldn't be changed unless you change output hardware.
10:21:36pondlifeYes, switching from car to headphones, in my case
10:21:57LloreanIn which case you're not really changing but moving between two presets, which is perfect for .cfgs
10:22:11markunLlorean: also for binaural recordings
10:22:15LloreanI really mean "thinks you're more likely to adjust often, and to a variety of values should be as shallow as possible"
10:22:37Lloreanmarkun: binaural recordings should be preprocessed. :-P
10:22:46pondlifeBeatles stuff too...
10:23:29markunLlorean: are we talking about the same thing?
10:23:32LloreanBut I think the real problem isn't "deep menus" as much as just poor positioning of things in general
10:23:45LloreanSubmenus increase the button press cost by 1 for items within them.

10:24:13pondlifeYes, but you can't see them until you go in... so searching can be slower.
10:24:27Lloreanpondlife: I think the real problem is that the main "categories" aren't obvious enough for what's in them, and often the submenus themselves don't have obvious enough names.
10:24:45pondlife"General Settings" anyone? :/
10:24:51 Quit bertrik ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")

10:25:50pondlifeNo, let them be human
10:26:17pondlifeBecause it'll make the UI easier to use. You can change the UI, not the user
10:26:46LloreanHow is "A long list of sound settings that may confuse the user by seeming to arbitrarily not work when they should" easier to use than "A list of sound settings with a subcategory Digital Audio"?
10:26:46pondlifeThis is about easy, not educational
10:26:49LloreanWhat is "easier"?
10:26:52JdGordonthere is also an assumption that our users arnt that stupid...
10:26:53LloreanWhy is it "easier"
10:26:56LloreanThey're both a list of settings.
10:26:57JdGordonwe dont have to dumb down everything
10:27:21 Join Mathiasdm [0] (
10:27:36pondlifeI don't think it's dumbing down, but to me "Digital Audio" is (a) irrelevant and (b) "this is a DAP, so it does Digital Audio"
10:27:46pondlifei.e. I don't think "not radio"
10:27:47JdGordonlong lists are harder to process because the brain doesnt handle more than 7-8 things well
10:27:55pondlife7 is about right
10:27:59Lloreanpondlife: so DSP then?
10:28:11pondlifeBetter, but you've just put a TLA in
10:28:12JdGordonpondlife: 100% on that point though
10:28:12LloreanHow is it "irrelevant"?
10:28:21pondlifeIt's just sound
10:28:28LloreanNo, it's not "just sound"
10:28:34LloreanIf it were "just sound" it's work on all sound.
10:28:43pondlifeI mean, from a user's perspective - they don't care if ir's digital or analogue
10:28:50JdGordonit is.. anything coming out of the headphone jack is "digital audio" as far as most users understand
10:29:00pondlifeThey really don't care, they just want to sort out the volume
10:29:15LloreanYes, and if a user then encounters things in Digital Audio NOT working, they might just ask "why did they make a distinction" rather than simply filing a bug report
10:29:24LloreanThe whole point is to MAKE some of them care.
10:29:32JdGordonyou cant change users!
10:29:37LloreanThe fact that a bug report on this hasn't been filed yet just means that we have a small user base.
10:29:49LloreanJdGordon: You can't change users, but you CAN choose not to intentionally hide information from them
10:29:58pondlifeThey might equally well start reporting bugs where none exist, and still not think or get the distinction.

10:30:29pondlifeNo, don't be silly
10:30:39pondlifeI'm not arguing with you again.
10:30:41LloreanYou said "They still might not get the distinction"

10:31:15LloreanBy providing more information?

10:31:42pondlifeUsers don't generally care, they just want to find things
10:31:52pondlifeWe do, because we are technically minded
10:32:30pondlifeBut that doesn't make for a good UI for the non-computer-literate (the ultimate test case for a UI)
10:32:40Llorean1) We don't make it for the users first. 2) Plenty of them would catch the distinction. 3) Those who "don't care" won't care that there's one more submenu anyway
10:32:54LloreanI refuse to accept that we're designing Rockbox for the computer illiterate.

10:57:33pixelmaLlorean: menu depth is also a problem, because the submenu isn't always 1 "click" away if you have to move up/down a list before and have to remember the name of the next submenu (or be able to find it easily) - a good example is probably the "Theme Settings" submenu vs. "General Settings > Display" (which is also a problem of old habits).
10:58:13pixelmaAnother example: sometimes it bothers me that I need to enter submenu after submenu on my Ondio if I just want to change shuffle or repeat mode and start thinking "when will I be at the right place?"
10:58:35Lloreanpixelma: True, *but* the options the submenu represents would also have to be that far down in the list too, anyway...
10:58:59pixelmaI'm not saying it's bad in general to establish some categories but it needs to be well balanced - which is a *hard* thing to do (I know)

11:09:03B4gderpolo shirts are more expensive in general but I'm probably not going for the coffee mugs this year so we could spend some more on the shirts

11:27:24YAVIOne question, anyone has found how to increase the ipod volume when using it on a dock?
11:27:49*GodEater used the volume controls on the dock
11:27:55GodEaterthis appeared to work nicely
11:28:15 Join ackbahr [0] (
11:28:27YAVIno, not on mine
11:28:47YAVIon the dock the volume does not do anything
11:29:01YAVIit has a line level, but cannot be changed
11:29:11LloreanDoes the dock itself have volume controls?
11:29:29YAVIyes, but only by remote
11:29:41YAVIand it does not work when it is with rockbox
11:30:06YAVIjust in the apple software
11:30:11LloreanWell then there's really nothing you can do right now.
11:31:14GodEaterI was surprised when it worked for mine actually, I didn't realise quite how simple some docks were. Pleasantly surprised ;)
11:31:35LloreanIt's strange, though. The iPod outputs at line level, so any volume adjustment *any* dock does *should* just be between the dock and its controls.
11:31:50LloreanUnless somehow the volume adjustment is communicated to the iPod and then back down to the dock.
11:31:58GodEaterdon't think so
11:32:01LloreanGodEater: Have you tried, in AppleOS, adjusting the volume on the dock using the scroll wheel?
11:32:10YAVIGodEater: may be right
11:32:17GodEaterLlorean: not possible, I have no music accesible in AppleOS
11:32:22YAVIsome docks can modify the line volume
11:32:26LloreanIt would be *really* strange anyway
11:32:32YAVInot the ipod volume
11:32:45GodEaterYAVI: why is that a good idea ?
11:32:51YAVIit s like a pre-amp
11:33:03*GodEater can't see the point

11:33:29YAVII don't get you GodEater
11:33:37YAVIwhat did you say is a good idea?
11:33:43 Quit ackbahr (Remote closed the connection)
11:33:49LloreanThe whole point of a line-out is to be at line level for something else to amplify it.
11:34:34YAVIbut the problem is that the ipod has a line level lower than other things such as cds etc
11:34:52*GodEater backs out of the conversation slowly
11:35:07YAVIthe idea in some docks is to preamlify the ipod line to be the same as the rest of inputs of your amplifier
11:35:29LloreanYAVI: Rockbox doesn't run on the dock.
11:35:41GodEaterI still don't see what that has to do with the volume on the ipod
11:35:54LloreanIf the dock has an amp in it, it should be irrelevant what firmware is on the iPod, since the iPod still outputs *to* the dock at line level.
11:36:36YAVILlorean: the problem is that my dock does not amp the line level, so I can do nothing about it
11:36:49GodEaterthen I would suggest your dock is not doing what it should
11:36:50LloreanYAVI: If your dock has volume controls, it *should*
11:36:52YAVIthe one of GodEater may have it and he can manage it
11:37:07LloreanThe iPod volume does not adjust the line out from the dock connector.
11:37:51YAVILlorean: that is true, what I mean is that some docks amplify the line level not the ipod volume
11:38:11LloreanI don't understand what you're asking then.
11:38:16GodEaternor me
11:38:20YAVIthat is to say it does it itself, it does not modify the ipod volume itself
11:38:38YAVIand mine does not do it :(
11:38:52YAVIso i can´t change the volume but from the amplifier
11:38:56LloreanWhat you have is (iPod at line level) -> (dock, which may do stuff). In both Rockbox and AppleOS the iPod is at line level.
11:39:04YAVIand the line level is lower than from the cd
11:39:15GodEaterI don't see what that has to do with anything
11:39:24YAVIyeah Llorean
11:39:32LloreanSo what does this have to do with Rockbox?
11:39:34YAVIwhat I wanted to know
11:39:54YAVIwas if somehow line level could be modified
11:40:05LloreanIt will cause clipping
11:40:11LloreanThe line level is at 0dB, it really is a "line level"
11:40:29YAVIbut not the same as other devices
11:40:49YAVII do not know much about electric matters
11:41:04LloreanThe other devices you have may be pre-amping.
11:41:13YAVIbut I think others are at 1v and this one is something like 0.7v?¿
11:41:50LloreanThis doesn't remove the fact that you will encounter clipping if you try to increase the output gain on the line out.
11:42:24YAVIso it is a hardware "problem"
11:42:47YAVIthat If I could modify by software would cause clipping?
11:43:12*GodEater would suggest just buying a better dock
11:43:35YAVIit is not a really big problem anyway
11:43:44YAVIit is just that if i forgget about it
11:43:51YAVIand play a cd for example
11:44:04YAVIand forget to modify the volume at the amp
11:44:12YAVIit would be too high
11:44:26YAVIits about 1/3 slower than in other devices
11:44:31gevaertsYAVI: please try to write entire sentences on a line
11:44:35YAVIsorry lower
11:44:59YAVIOk gevaerts sorry :(
11:46:19YAVIGodEater: , and can you use your remote from the dock to change the songs, etc using rockbox?
11:47:21LloreanNo, Rockbox can't yet properly communicate with the dock.
11:47:56YAVIaham, so you are working with it?
11:48:33LloreanNot much work is being done in that area, though there has been a small start.

14:33:48pondlifeThe corrupt display here is at the Comments/Related Tasks tab.
14:33:49LloreanBut I don't see changing the default severity as really being a fix.
14:33:57pondlifeWhy not default to Low ?
14:34:02LloreanNo corruption here.
14:34:07pondlifeIt's currently defaulting to something invalid
14:34:38LloreanIt'd be nice if there was an actual "unset" value.
14:34:41pondlifeAt least set up a value for "Unknown" and use that
14:35:04LloreanI don't like "low" personally because that's actually setting a value to it before anyone's looked at it.
14:35:36pondlifeTrue. not that we use severity. And the other fields have defaults too.
14:35:54LloreanWe use severity from time to time.

My current ports (Logik DAX and Sansa M260) are progressing now, but don't have any kind of flash driver. The hope is to use USB to dump the raw flash pages, to help us understand how the translation from flash pages to disk-style sectors works.

19:03:23pixelmayeah, the page is more a collection of ideas and I saw discussion about that arise here from time to time. One thing crossing my mind right now: what's with common strings that you could find in a lot of plugins (like quit or level and such)
19:03:34amiconnmidgey: I think plugins should do it the same way as tge core, i.e. having the english strings built in
19:04:11amiconnThe challenge is handling the .lng and .voice chunks, one per "user" (core, and each localised plugin)

19:04:49midgeyamiconn: i would agree that they should be built in. Upon reading the wiki page, option 1 seems ideal but also the hardest
19:05:14amiconnI think the plugin shouldn't overwrite the core buffers though, otherwise calling back some core menu will break
19:06:14amiconnAlso, buffer size requirements are different for each "user"
19:06:57midgeyindeed, right now i have no safety checks at all in the code so a plugin with a lot of strings will certainly crash

19:07:04midgeyi need to read up on the user field
19:07:24amiconnThere is no such filed yet
19:07:28 Quit PortableDude (Client Quit)
19:08:17amiconnThere are some further ideas regarding that. If we come up with a nice way of handling chunks, we could also extend it to handle individual strings/clips
19:08:20preglowlinuxstb: dab+ spec was small and nice
19:08:48amiconnThis would allow to do away with per-target .lng and .voice files, while keeping the space advantages
19:09:03midgeyi guess that would explain why the field is always blank
19:09:08amiconn...i.e. only loading those strings/clips which are actually needed on a particular target
19:09:28amiconnI mean combination of target and user

19:10:15midgeyi understand. one universal lang file for all targets and they load which strings they need
19:10:35amiconnYup. Same for .voice
19:11:27midgeyso when a plugin is loaded, would the buffer be flushed and reloaded with the strings needed by that plugin (plus any core string - playback menu)?
19:11:59amiconnThe plugin would need its own buffers in the plugin ram
19:12:13gevaertsrockboxed_daps++ :)
19:12:45amiconnBtw, .voice files would probably not end up completely universal, 'cause handling 2 different audio formats for the clips would become nasty
19:12:46 Quit dabujo ("( :: NoNameScript 4.2 :: )")
19:12:59amiconnSo one universal .voice for hwcodec, and another for swcodec
19:13:04midgeymakes sense, perhaps the plugin strings would be P_LANG_ when referenced
19:13:09 Quit linuxstb (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
19:13:55amiconnYeah, that's the interesting part - handling those IDs in an efficient way when they are no longer contiguous
19:14:30domonokywouldnt it make sense to keep the voice files target specific ? as the core voicefile are now also target specific ?
19:15:42domonokyand if we update the voice format, it would be coud to include some version string, so we could check if the voicefile fits the current installed build ? ..
19:15:47amiconnRight now the LANG_* IDs are generated per target at compile time, leaving out the ones excluded for that target. So the IDs are always contiguous, and can easily be regenerated at runtime (no need to build the pointer array into the binary, which saves several KB)
19:16:25amiconndomonoky: The idea is that there should ultimately be only one single voice file for all targets, covering core and all voiced plugins
19:16:36amiconnOne file per language, of course
19:17:04amiconnThere is a version marker in .lng and .voice iirc
19:17:19domonokyso we would exclude the not need voice strings at loadtime ?
19:17:21mrkikoAre there voiced plugins? What plugins are voiced currently?
19:17:38amiconnThat's part of the project...
19:17:47domonokythere is a version in the voicefile, but this version is for the format, not for the build..
19:17:48midgeymrkiko: no, that would be a secondary task for my proposal

19:19:15mrkikois someone encountering other problems? I'm using official builds now, not my own ones.
19:19:16midgeythe challenge is coming up with a universal .lng but still not added much to binsize
19:19:50Lloreanmrkiko: Please use specific revision numbers.
19:20:01*amiconn thinks that should be possible
19:20:19amiconnIt will probably use somewhat more ram than what we need now though
19:20:22mrkikoLlorean: sorry, i allways forget to do so...
19:20:24LloreanThe last build to actually use the words "code policing" was only changes in files for the ZVM.

19:23:54amiconnBinsize is more critical than ram (although more free ram is also a good thing)

22:55:35Bagder"targets that rockbox runs on good enough so that we can tell average people to go ahead and try it on them" :-)
22:55:49scorche| is also a list of "devices rockbox runs on that we have judged to be complete enough and usable enough for general users"
