00:22:09stripwax^a number of functions, of course, not just a decimal..
00:22:32stripwaxbut objdump doesn't seem to make a distinction between icode/irodata/etc
00:23:05stripwaxonly iram/ibss
00:23:49shotofaddsMarcGuay: the capacity shouldn't matter - i'd expect it to show a different NAND chip id. does your c150 have the same firmware version as the c140 (just so we can discount different h/w versions as per m200)?
00:23:49linuxstbstripwax: That seems fine - the .lds file specifies .iram and .ibss. .iram contains .icode, .irodata and .idata
00:25:04stripwaxOk, thanks. Just tying together the various pieces needed for profiling

00:45:29MarcGuaylinuxstb, DerPapst: I don't think a conclusion was reached. The proper solution is going to take a while, so we have a choice now between two bad fixes.

01:36:19linuxstbMarcGuay: I've got that c100 - or at least, the bits from it... All DavideNYC sent me was the motherboard, with the battery terminals removed. So it's going to need a little repairing to hook power up to it.
01:37:15MarcGuaylinuxstb: Okay. I'm just thinking that if there was a hardware revision and I have a different version than that one, I might have to break mine open.

02:14:20PaulJamstripwax: still doesn't work, but the location slightly changed: "cube.c:(.text+0x2c4): undefined reference to `memcpy'"
02:14:47Kinkyis there a way to get the e200r series to use the bootloader or does anyone know? I've tried all the hints I can find
02:15:44LloreanKinky: I don't understand what you're asking.
02:15:52LloreanThe installation instructions are instructions of installing the bootloader.
02:16:30Kinkywell I was able to get rockbox to "install" and I can even get all the extras like themes to install and I can see the files when I explore there but it still boots into rhapsody
02:16:38Kinkyso I am assuming it's a bootloader issue
02:17:03LloreanWell "installing" rockbox is just unzipping a file to the player
02:17:04scorche|shdoes rbutil say that the bootloader was installed successfully?
02:17:11Kinkyyes it does
02:17:15Lloreanscorche|sh: rbutil doesn't work with -R series, I thought
02:17:23scorche|shLlorean: i wouldnt know
02:17:32KinkyI saw a few places that said yes and some that say no so I gave it a whirl
02:17:48scorche|shKinky: try the manual install method as mentioned in the manual
02:17:58stripwaxPaulJam - sigh, right.. in that case it's confirmed what I suspected, and the following would also need to change: line 599, change to const struct shape * myshape line 605-610, change myshape.faces to myshape->faces etc , line 768 chahge to cube_draw(&myshape). That'll probably scotch it
02:18:00KinkyI am headed there next actually thanks
02:18:18stripwaxOdd that it works for me without that macro though
02:18:37LloreanOn a completely unrelated note:
02:19:20LloreanHow do we feel about the Voice UI in regard to the release? Do we advertise it as a major feature, or because it's buggy do we play it down and mention it's "there, but not finalized" or something?
02:20:59PaulJamstripwax: have you tried compiling for the h300?
02:21:30PaulJambtw, should i undo the previous changes first?

02:38:57MarcGuayThat's not so great. bat-signal to bluebrother.

02:39:59MarcGuayThey may be slightly different for Vista. It would be nice if you could document those differences.

02:42:11MarcGuayLlorean: What's the difference between the ipod rebooting to the OF for charging & file transfer and the Sansas?
02:42:22LloreanKinky: When you copy the PP5022.mi4 to your sansa, does it say on its own screen that it's updating the firmware, after you unplug it?
02:42:46LloreanKinky: And WHICH PP5022.mi4 is it that you've copied over?
02:42:53MarcGuayKinky: And you're sure you've renamed the files are directed?
02:42:58LloreanIf you're not getting Rockbox, it's very likely that you're just copying over an unmodified one.
02:43:08Kinkyrenamed yes, not sure what you mean by which on the mi4
02:43:25LloreanKinky: You're supposed to download two PP5022.MI4 files, one from a .zip and one directly
02:43:39Kinkyhmmmm interesting
02:43:45KinkyI only read about one
02:43:48LloreanMarcGuay: iPods have a disk mode that's stored in ROM. Even if the disk is completely removed, it'll still work. This is what we reboot to, rather than a full version of the OF.
02:44:02LloreanKinky: I see it very clearly in the windows instructions here:
02:44:11KinkyI'm sure I just overlooked it
02:44:12LloreanThe linux ones link to the same file
02:44:43***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
02:44:49MarcGuayLlorean: I see. And you find that it causes less user confusion than the Sansas?
02:44:57KinkyI'm checking again
02:45:04LloreanMarcGuay: I think both cause significant user confusion
02:45:08d1sturbWPS no longer shows up. Can anyone help me?
02:45:10LloreanThe iPod one probably causes MORE
02:45:24LloreanMostly because it's monochrome, so they think it's something we made mocked up to look like the OF USB
02:45:30MarcGuayd1sturb: Syntax changed, check the CustomWPS wiki page.
02:45:31LloreanPeople consistently think it's part of our software.
02:45:37MarcGuay%P, %pb and %m.
02:46:10LloreanThe reason I differentiated the Sansas in my earlier comments was because Rockbox USB mode on Sansa can cause whole filesystem corruption, while other PP devices should be safe
02:46:13MarcGuayLlorean: That's odd. I guess they never see it if they still with the Apple soft.
02:46:47LloreanMarcGuay: Exactly. Normally you never see it unless you hold a key combo while booting, but once you install Rockbox you see it any time you plug in a USB cable. To those not in the know, it's just Rockbox's USB screen.
02:47:10MarcGuayI was referring to the line in your 3.0 email: "specifically Rockbox not charging while connected".
02:47:38LloreanMarcGuay: Ah, that's something different entirely
02:47:46MarcGuayOr do you mean when charging-only mode is initiated?
02:48:22LloreanSince charge-only mode will also be entered if Rockbox detects a "real" charger (USB plug into a wall adapter) when it's possible to detect such

02:57:12LloreanPersonally, I'm for providing 3.0 binaries for all targets, but only marking some of them as "Supported" by the release, and the rest as "beta"
02:57:35LloreanIt should be pretty easy to make it clear in the release announcement and page which set are which.
02:57:57MarcGuayLlorean: I think as long as the big weird things are mentionned in very obvious places, it should work out okay
02:58:47LloreanAnyway, that's why I want to compile everyone's opinions on what target-specific blockers exist.
02:59:07LloreanThen, when it's decision time, there's a lot more data available.
02:59:53LloreanIf one or two targets have a lot of problems that I'm just not remembering, I'm more likely to be in favour of kicking them out, while if it's just a general "each target has one or two major quirks" situation then it's a bit different.
03:01:10Kinkyok, did it all again, and shazam! it's working.... thanks so very much!!! it had to be that I duplicated the two files instead of grabbing two separate files....

03:22:59unpaidbillis there an ipod 80GB wit hvideo that isnt supported by rockbox? ipodpatcher.exe says it doesnt detect the ipod that i have mounted up and just copied the .rockbox directory onto!
03:23:25scorchethe classic comes in 80GB versions
03:24:02unpaidbillwell according to the rockbox/apple page i have an ipod video 80gb.. but it doesnt appear to be detecting it
03:24:10Lloreanunpaidbill: Is the default list of tracks full screen or does it only take up half the screen?
03:24:10unpaidbillgonna try the rockbox utility deal
03:24:21unpaidbillhalf the screen
03:24:27LloreanThen it's an 80gb Classic, not an 80gb Video
03:24:29unpaidbillthe other half is some annoying picture
03:24:31LloreanSorry, but Rockbox will not run on it.
03:24:41unpaidbillit plays video
03:24:45unpaidbillbut it's a classic?
03:24:49LloreanYes, the "Classic" plays video

03:24:58scorchethe video is a specific version

04:34:51newbie1k-nobeThat also means that a new build will come out that solves this issue?

10:22:57GodEaterwas it a pain to fit ?
10:23:01pondlifeNot too bad
10:23:15pondlifeHad to get mrs pondlife to push the connector in
10:23:21pondlifeMy fingers are too fat
10:24:13pondlifeThe instructions with the battery say "You had better discharge the battery packs entirely before charging it." - should I let it run down once before the first charge?
10:24:29pondlifeOr is that some kind of Cameron-Sino talk that makes no sense?
10:24:47GodEaterthat goes against everything I've ever heard you're supposed to do with LiON
10:24:51pondlifeMe too
10:25:09GodEaterI certainly didn't do it with the battery I put in my H140
10:25:16pondlifeBut I won't be leaving this battery on charge nearly all of the time, that seemed to kill the last one
10:25:29pondlifei.e. running from powered 99% of the time

11:21:10*JdGordon just moved it out of the top level
11:21:42pondlifeI'd generally prefer more details in the info screen and less menu options.
11:21:58pondlifeJust an opinion-y thing though, no real reason.
11:22:09JdGordonfine, but what has the time and date got to do with "rockbox info"?
11:23:02pondlifeWhat has hard disk size?
11:23:12pondlifeIt's a general system info screen
11:23:25JdGordon3 sec too slow :p
11:23:40pondlifeSo rename it System Info :)
11:24:46pondlifeWe already have version as a separate option too, although I prefer not to spin up my disk to check that...
11:25:22JdGordonthats another thing i want to change... the version option should show the number there also

11:26:08JdGordonin the info screen, im talking about in the menu

13:40:56DerPapstthough the flashrom chip they dumped is encrypted too. so the 50kb rom of the cpu needs to be dumped.

14:35:32PaulJamin what way are they shown incorrectly? if the letters appear as empty boxes, then the font doesn't have the neccessary glyphs.
14:37:19nardulPaulJam, It shows up as pure garbage, not empty char's
14:37:21markunnardul: do you use windows?
14:38:00nardulmarkun, No. Linux
14:38:18markunnardul: then it's often that the drive isn't mounted as UTF-8
14:39:11nardulmarkun, hmm. That would make sense.
14:39:25markunwhich means the files are not converted from utf-8 to ucs-2, but from latin1 for example
14:39:55nardulThat' doesn't make sense to me.
14:40:08nardulNot that it doesn't happen, but what you said :)

14:42:01nardulHAL does it for me.
14:42:05markunI don't know
14:42:15nardulI'll mount it manually and see.
14:42:19markunI don't use linux myself
14:43:14GodEatermarkun: think it depends on where you want that option to go
14:43:19GodEateriocharset is right for fstab
14:43:31GodEaterbut I think if you have HAL doing the mounting, it's utf8=true
14:43:35GodEateror somesuch
14:43:49nardulGodEater, I couldn't find anything i messages indicationg charset.
14:43:50markunGodEater: ok, I'll try to remember it

14:44:33GodEaterthat's my ipod fstab entry
14:44:46GodEaterwhich definitely works
14:44:54nardulGodEater, If you plug in your ipod it automatically gets mounted there?
14:44:56***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
14:45:09GodEaterno - I mount it manually - hence why it's in fstab
14:45:20GodEaterI wouldn't have an entry for it there if it was automounted
14:45:22nardulExactly. I primarily just plug it in.
14:45:35nardulWould be nice if i could make that work.
14:45:35GodEaterthen you need to check your mount options with gconf-editor

14:48:45GodEaterPS - I only get to pick on your for running gentoo because I ran it for three years before I got fed up with portage :)
14:48:48nardul"shortname=lower" "uid="
14:49:04nardulGodEater, I like portage. It's superior in most ways. Except you have to compile everything.
14:49:46GodEatermy mount_options are : shortname=mixed,uid=,utf8,umask=077,exec,flush
14:49:59GodEaterso I guess just add the utf8 if that's all your interested in
14:50:28mcuelenaereB4gder: how hard would it be to get RBUtil (and perhaps WPSeditor in the future) building in the build server chain?
14:50:50GodEaterafter three years of portage, I can't help but wonder what you think portage is superior to. revdep-rebuild is an obvious gaping flaw...
14:50:56linuxstbHas some source code for the WPSeditor been published?
14:51:06GodEaterlinuxstb: not that I've seen
14:51:15*GodEater takes it back
14:51:37linuxstbSomeone should give him rights to SVN...
14:52:05nardulGodEater, Actually, it was redesigned not so long ago. But yes, it has it's problems. It continues to have problems with gcj, and wants to rebuild GCC whenever i run it. But you just have to create a symlink and it works fine.
14:52:23markunlinuxstb: I believe that for tax reasons the code must now also be supplied to google
14:52:34GodEaternardul: I prefer to avoid such workarounds now - I find apt more comfortable these days
14:52:42linuxstbmarkun: But isn't that just uploading a patch at the end of the summer?
14:52:47nardulYou're on ubuntu?
14:53:06*GodEater will attempt to avoid further distro discussion now though as it's off topic
14:53:14markunlinuxstb: yes, probably
14:53:15nardulGodEater, I like just being able to find everything in portage, and continuous upgrades.
14:53:21GodEaterdo come to #rockbox-community if you wish to be mocked further ;)

14:56:58B4gdermcuelenaere: not that terribly hard, but I don't see a need to use the build servers for that purpose since it's more of a single build and not one for each possible target
14:57:31mcuelenaereB4gder: yes perhaps not all build servers would be needed, just one could satisfy
14:57:33linuxstbB4gder: It's multi-platform though
14:58:03B4gdertrue, but the build servers don't help much with that
14:58:09markunnardul: anyway, did this solve your problem? You obviously need to retransmit or rename your files.
14:58:19linuxstbB4gder: Don't we have an OS X build server now?
14:58:33B4gderah yes we do
14:58:35mcuelenaereB4gder: I presume all build servers are Linux?
14:58:40linuxstbAnd 64-bit...
14:59:36linuxstbAnd maybe building binary packages for different distros will be easier on that specific distro...
15:00:43JdGordonB4gder: if oyu have a sec.. can you check which port you have setup for
15:01:33*JdGordon needs to fix port forwarding on that box again
15:02:06JdGordonactually.. can you change it to 22?
15:02:06mcuelenaereJdGordon: the WPS editor student had some questions regarding drawmodes, do you know something about that?
15:02:42JdGordonlinuxstb is probaly a better person to ask... but depends on the problem
15:02:52linuxstbmcuelenaere: How did you find the wps editor? Did the student come to IRC?
15:03:07*linuxstb doesn't understand the drawmodes, and forwards the request to amiconn
15:03:20mcuelenaerelinuxstb: I mailed him and he asked me something about it a half an hour ago and redirected him to IRC, but I guess he didn't came..
15:03:30mcuelenaereI redirected him*
15:03:49*linuxstb is underwhelmed by the student IRC activity
15:04:30mcuelenaerelinuxstb: perhaps you could mail him? maybe he's still online
15:05:01*GodEater agrees heartily with linuxstb
15:05:16*linuxstb kicks the SoC mentors to kick their students
15:05:45*gevaerts kicks linuxstb to kick SoC mentors harder to kick their students
15:13:05*GodEater thought linuxstb *was* a mentor with a student, so assumes linuxstb is kicking himself
15:13:19linuxstbGodEater: Not afaik...
15:13:42GodEaterlinuxstb: your name is next to saratoga's project on the Gsoc2008 wiki page...
15:15:32linuxstbGodEater: Yes, I was interested in that project, but didn't volunteer as a mentor for it in the end.
15:16:00*GodEater struggles to remember who did end up mentoring it then. JdGordon ?
15:16:09linuxstbGodEater: Yes, see the table at the top of that page

16:14:07pondlifeJdGordon: #9173 is for 3.0 ??
16:14:44pondlifeI still haven't seen a decent reason for changing it.
16:15:47JdGordonpreglow: thats the point of the screen.. get the time out of the info screen
16:15:55pondlifeBut why???
16:16:04pondlifeI like the time in the info screen
16:16:05JdGordonbecause it sucks there!
16:16:19pondlifeIn your opinion, and maybe only yours?
16:16:36pondlifeI see this as change for change's sake at best.
16:16:47preglowi tend to agree
16:16:51preglowbut i'll have to try it
16:17:01*JdGordon thinking bike shed is why there is an argument
16:17:13JdGordonthe current scheme is not nice from the users POV
16:17:26pondlifeWhy not? I mean, if it was fixed up
16:17:36pondlifeIt should work fine in the info screen.
16:18:08pondlifeAll of the info screen should be refreshed in realtime anyway (battery level for example)
16:18:35pondlifeI don't see why it's not nice to include the time/date there.
16:18:42JdGordonit cant be refreshed in real time and scroll...
16:18:51pondlifeWhy not?
16:18:57pondlifeThat's an implementation detail.
16:19:09 Join Horscht [0] (n=Horscht@xbmc/user/horscht)
16:19:12JdGordonyes it is
16:19:25JdGordonwhich is why im offering this alternative implementation
16:19:31JdGordonwhich imo looks nicer anyway
16:19:56pondlifeIt adds another screen format, we should be minimising those.
16:20:17preglowi don't see the point in adding another clock display, no
16:20:20pondlifewps, wrs, radio, list - should cover everything, I think
16:20:25preglowyou already have one in the status bar, and in the time/date screen
16:20:54pondlifeIIRC, the info screen had it included for voice support primarily.
16:21:04JdGordonpondlife: if you didnt get the bike shed reference (and i dont mean to be rude incase it comes out like that)
16:21:59preglowis the background colour of that page intentional? :>
16:22:05pondlifeJdGordon: I think another screen goes against my sense of KISS. Unless this will also give a nice green delta ;)
16:22:29JdGordonpreglow: refresh it..
16:22:49JdGordonpondlife: thats the other reason for it... to show off how sreens can look with viewports
16:23:08pondlifeJdGordon: That's a terrible reason to do it IMHO
16:23:17*JdGordon hopes he linked the right page before
16:23:28*DerPapst likes viewports and uses them for battleship too
16:23:28pondlifeSo, let's add non-standard screens for each feature, because we can.
16:23:29JdGordonwhy is that a terrible reason?
16:23:42pondlifeIt's unrelated
16:23:59*JdGordon intends to either wps-ify the rec/fm screens, or change them to something like that
16:24:00pondlifeI want to move study mode into a special screen, say.... ;)
16:24:15pondlifeI'd rather see the status bar be a viewport
16:24:21pondlifeala linuxstb's proof of concept
16:24:30JdGordon*thats* unrelated
16:24:46pondlifeYes, but it would show viewports being useful
16:24:53JdGordonno it wouldnt
16:25:00pondlifei.e. same status bar across the whole UI
16:25:25pondlife(and a customisable one, at that)
16:25:34JdGordonits irrelevant thoguh
16:26:10JdGordonand sure its a change for the sake of a change.. but unless someone comes up with a good negative reason against it.. i dont see the big deal in chanigng
16:26:31pondlifeRed delta, non-standard screen - there's 2 reasons.
16:26:41pondlifeExtra menu option - there's a 3rd
16:26:49pondlifeAll for no gain
16:27:17JdGordoni've moved the screen so its actually 1 less menu item overall now
16:27:18pondlifeI'll shut up and let others speak up for it now though...
16:27:30preglowonly thing i feel strongly about is a don't see the need for another time/date display. doesn't the time/date setting itself do that nicely enough?
16:27:31JdGordonred delta is not a good reason
16:27:54preglowif it doesn't, i rather think that should change so it is
16:27:58pondlifeIt is, especially on an Archos
16:28:26JdGordonyou shouldnt need to go into the time setting (which is 3 levels in) to find out the time
16:28:40JdGordonthats why it was added to the rockbox info screen, where, imo it doesnt belong
16:28:46preglowstatus bar, then , if you wnat to see the time easily
16:29:04pondlifeIt was added to the info screen for voice support
16:29:11pondlife(I'm fairly sure.)
16:29:21preglowwhich time/date setting should also provide
16:29:27preglowso i don't even see why it should be added to the info screen
16:29:29JdGordon3 levels in...
16:30:48pondlifeI like it in the info screen, personally. But I mainly use that for the date as the status bar has the time.
16:30:53preglowperhaps we could move it to the root settings menu? it's basic enough an option to merit it, i think
16:31:46pondlifeInfo is the same depth as a root setting would be.

16:52:07pondlifeI can't make it speak the time or date, but I probably need a new voice file?
16:52:22JdGordonuse the usual context menu action
16:52:59pondlifeThat wasn't very obvious - I'd only have got that if I'd read the manual ;)
16:53:12JdGordonor the text in the post
16:53:19pondlifeWhy not allow the bar to scroll onto the date or time?
16:53:44JdGordonbecause they arnt editable
16:53:52JdGordonthe screen is logically split into 2 parts
16:54:16pondlifeBut that makes for obvious voice support, IMHO.. i.e. move the bar onto date and it reads the date...
16:54:42JdGordonwell... that was another option, but i dont really like it
16:54:54JdGordonand it would have to be done by adding a "talk the time" option to the list part
16:55:23pondlifeContext menus normally operated on the selected entity, so a context press on "Sleep Timer" to read the time isn't consistent
16:55:28preglowi don't think it should be selectable if it isn't editable

19:51:42pondlifeWell, there's a Rockbox simulator you can run on Linux...
19:51:51pondlifeThat's about it, I think.
19:51:58wpyha lot (if not most) Rockbox developers use Linux
19:52:02scorche|shlolio: what are you getting at?...rockbox is not and is not based on linux
19:52:04LloreanAnd we learned some iPod stuff from iPodLinux
19:52:18wpyhyeah, and Rockbox got some drivers from iPodLinux
19:52:26wpyhiPodLinux is a derivative of Linux
19:52:38pondlifeAnd we were talking about having a bird mascot earlier ;)
19:52:45scorche|shbut it isnt and is not related to linux...which i think is what he was getting at
19:52:54LloreanBut Rockbox itself is built from the ground up on its own codebase.
19:52:58lolioi dont get how rockbox works

20:01:56domonokyi want him to cleanup the code, and then put it into our svn in the not so far future..

20:10:30bluebrotheris there a readme?
20:11:14bluebrotherand those files are dos style :/
20:11:23domonokyi dont think so... he should instead improve the build process...
20:11:40bluebrotheryeah ... I'd like to see qmake used
20:11:45domonoky1. build the "proxy" dll with "make shared"
20:11:55*bluebrother screams
20:12:11domonoky2. build the property editor with "qmake && make"
20:12:24domonoky3. build the gui with "qmake && make"
20:12:35domonokythe dll is intended...
20:12:53domonokythe wps editor will use shared libs to support all targets...
20:13:06bluebrotherwhy that?
20:13:22bluebrotherI don't see a reason why a lib is needed to support multiple targets.
20:13:54Bagdermidgey: I'll try out the latest #9067 tonight and provide feedback
20:13:57domonokybecause it uses rockbox wps and display code, you cant compile this for different targets in one, without changing much of the code.
20:14:05bluebrotherit will most likely cause quite some headache in terms of portability ...
20:14:17domonokylike we need many differen checkwps builds..
20:14:26bluebrotherhmm, point taken
20:15:12domonokyan portability shouldnt be the problem, just deliver the shared libs with the editor, (maybe builtin the resource file)
20:15:40bluebrotherhow are the libs loaded? AFAIK the loader stuff isn't the same on all os.
20:15:55domonokyand Qt has a nice Crossplattform shared Library loader .. :-)
20:16:03bluebrotherah. nice.
20:16:08bluebrotherbut why not Qt plugins?
20:16:21gevaertsbluebrother: he did that part on his qualification task, and it worked for windows and linux (with the same code)
20:16:54bluebrothergevaerts: another reason why I want to have the students work _much_ more transparently
20:17:04*bluebrother didn't knew anything about that
20:17:39domonokyyeah more transparency would be nice, but its difficult to get the students there...
20:17:57bluebrotherbeat them to it.
20:18:06bluebrotheris it that hard to just require them to do it?
20:18:42bluebrotheras transparency is an important thing about open source ... and they should learn about that too, shouldn't they?

22:05:55gevaertspreglow: the OF: read 4.8 MB/s, write 3.9 MB/s. Rockbox as of this morning (with corruption): read 5.8 MB/s write 3.0 MB/s. The latest version (without corruption): write 2.6 MB/s (read unchanged)
22:06:10gevaertsAll this on a microSD card
22:06:22gevaertsSo in short, they are faster on write, we are faster on read
22:06:53*gevaerts is proud about being 20% faster than the OF on read
22:07:58bertrikso... this probably means we can enable sansa USB for 3.0?

22:12:37preglowgevaerts: any idea on how to write faster, then?
22:12:40gevaertslinuxstb: there is still an issue with remounting the filesystem within rockbox afterwards. That doesn't always work properly (details vague, sorry). Also, the hub/timing problem can in extreme cases throw the device off the bus
22:12:53gevaertspreglow: easy. Make the SD driver faster
22:13:12preglowgevaerts: i think that should be easy, from what i remember
22:13:28preglowi remember seeing read optimizations, but no write
22:13:47gevaertspreglow: if I work with a ramdisk, I get around 10MB/s for both read and write
22:14:35preglowgevaerts: driver seems to imply the writes are slow intentionally
22:14:45*gevaerts would commit the ramdisk code, but it has limited usefulness (only usb testing), and lots of ugly ifdefs
22:15:12gevaertspreglow: possibly. I don't feel confident changing that code too much though
22:15:16linuxstbIt could be used to mimic the Sansa recovery mode...
22:15:31gevaertsIt could, but why?

23:09:58shotofaddsthat's probably not a joke
23:10:07LloreanAnd telling the people they need to make a choice between using the OF and using Rockbox is something we've done before.
23:10:44gevaertsI think no UMS would be the hardest sell. People here don't seem to like MTP
23:10:46shotofaddsI don't think even I'd be happy with that, though.
23:11:19preglowbut no, given the difficulty in even having good _READ_ access work, i think write access is highly unlikely
23:12:21gevaertsAnyway it would need a lot of work (easier than NAND, but still a lot), so it's probably only good as a fallback if nothing else works
23:12:24bluebrotherstill segfaults though
23:13:18shotofaddsI don't see the problem with requiring an SD card for Rockbox. I'd have though most users serious enough to play with Rockbox will probably be using the SD card capabilities already.

23:14:18LloreanFor one, if you have an SD card as the only place to save settings, you end up with settings changing when/if you swap cards.
23:14:30gevaertsThat's a feature :)
23:14:38LloreanAs well, people will have D2s, try to install Rockbox, find it doesn't work reliably, and report bugs against it before finding out they need an SD card
23:14:42shotofaddsYes indeedy. But that's better than no write access at all
23:14:50midgeyBagder: the newest version of 9067 is mostly the same as the version I sent you a few days ago. I slightly cleaned up my changes to genlang and (regarding PlainTalk on Mac) and fixed Chessbox bulding. It should work the exact same way.
23:15:06shotofaddsWell no, I wouldn't allow them able to install it without an SD card.
23:15:09Llorean"usable" doesn't mean anything
23:15:13shotofadds(if we go that route)
23:15:17LloreanWe either endorse it as "supported" or say it's still a development version.
23:15:49LloreanI mean, we either provide builds and manuals for it, or we don't.
23:16:13shotofaddsI think we should be providing builds and manuals from the point when it is usable.
23:16:30gevaertsI think we need to distinguish "usable for developers", and "supported". SD is clearly sufficient for the first case, so I think we should concentrate on that
23:16:34LloreanThen you're advocating making it a "supported" target in everything but perhaps front page mention.
23:16:44LloreanPeople will see it on the "Builds" page and think the front page is out of date.
23:17:11Lloreangevaerts: usable for developers doesn't require a manual or "Current Build" download.
23:17:30shotofaddsI'm not advocating anything. I'm just saying that, in your scenario, the D2 will never reach the front page. I'll say again, write support is not realistic. So frankly we might as well not bother.

23:18:13Lloreanshotofadds: Many things have been said to be unrealistic. Obviously the OF engineers were able to do it, so it is within the realm of possibility, just not necessarily probability.
23:18:25LloreanWhy should we put it on the front page if it's just going to generate a lot of bug reports?
23:18:39midgeyBagder: have you looked at the talking changes (mainly to genlang)?
23:19:01Bagdermidgey: not properly yet, no
23:19:09gevaertsBagder: is the build master stuck?
23:19:37preglowi couldn't care less if we put it on the front page, really
23:20:11midgeyBagder: I artificially add 0x16000 to all plugin language ids so there are no repeats in voicefontids
23:20:13Bagdergevaerts: I poked it now, let's see...
23:20:27preglowLlorean: they were able to develop it, we have to reverse-engineer it, in an area where a bug might render your flash unusable, so it'll be damned hard
23:20:58Bagdermidgey: I can't see any particularly bad with that
23:21:21Lloreanpreglow: I don't see that as a reason to mark it as "supported" though.
23:21:52gevaertsLlorean: maybe we can add a category below supported, but above "may work some day, someone might be working on it"
23:21:57LloreanI guess it's a question of "is it worse to leave a player in 'not quite supported' status, or to rush it out to users despite problems that will confuse and irritate them"
23:22:28midgeyWell great! I haven't really talked about my work much on IRC. It seemed like a good idea to discuss what I've done so far.
23:22:30preglowLlorean: i'm not saying it's a reason to mark it supported at all
23:22:53preglowbut then it'll have to be ok to have a target that'll never be supported
23:22:55Lloreanpreglow: Well I don't know what your point is at all. All I'm suggesting is that it stay "For Developers" and not be directly linked from the download or manual pages.
23:23:16preglow"for eclectic users"
23:23:22LloreanThat possibly too.
23:23:34bluebrotherthere will be too much eclectic users ...
23:24:03*gevaerts would find a "supported, with serious (but documented and not necessarily dangerous) limitations" category acceptable
23:24:29preglowi don't really care, not much will change for me
23:24:43preglowpeople will still use it, post bugs and come along with code from time to time
23:24:56shotofaddsI think documentation and an installation method is a pre-requisite. There's no point in trying to do a port if we can't at least aim to get that far.
23:25:17preglowooh, new d2 dab firmware
23:25:34shotofaddspreglow: yeah, and for the first time it works perfectly for me
23:25:35preglownow if i only understood what stages of the install cowon says i need to run...
23:26:04shotofaddsI flashed the '1' folder, but then it wouldn't play music, so I did a Quick Format from windows
23:26:05*domonoky now has a 4 way step to build the correct rbspeex lib: 1. "ARCH=ppc make librbspeexppc.a" 2. "make clean" 3. "ARCH=i386 make librbspeexi386.a" 4. "make universal" :-)
23:26:07shotofaddsall is fine since
23:26:20gevaertsIf the only limitation is "you need an SD card", I see no reason not to have an easiy accessible manual and build, provided that there are enough warnings nearby (such as a split download table)
23:26:26preglowshotofadds: so you don't think just flashing 2 is enough?
23:26:41domonokybut we can add it to the pro file, so nobody has todo it by hand..
23:27:27Lloreangevaerts: And, rbutil?
23:27:35shotofaddspreglow: oh yeah, you need 2 as well. but don't bother with 0 :-)
23:28:05LloreanI think for a target to be "supported" someone needs to be able to stumble across the Rockbox website, say "oooh, I have that player" and within an hour have it installed without further investment.
23:28:06shotofaddsLlorean: yes. given sufficient warning. you've heard of "managing expectations", right?
23:28:18gevaertsLlorean: rbutil could have a "show limited ports" setting
23:28:19LloreanI wouldn't object to the dev.cgi page having separate download binaries for "In development" targets
23:28:21 Quit low_light (" ajax IRC Client")
23:28:28LloreanSo a binary version IS available, but it's on an entirely different page, and is "In Development"
23:28:42*shotofadds likes gevaerts' idea

23:28:54Lloreanshotofadds: I've spent 3 years providing support for this software. "managing expectations" doesn't work when people skip all text and go straight to the download link.
23:29:10preglowshotofadds: i mean flashing just 2, isn't one just graphics and shit? they usually don't update that
23:29:31gevaertsJust clearly separate "fully working" ports and "not fully working, but clearly documented limitations, and unlikely to get any farther" ports
23:29:49shotofaddsLlorean: I realise that. I just don't want to see things end up as another dead port a la iFP.
23:30:03bluebrotherdomonoky: don't forget if someone wants to build rbspeex{dec,enc}
23:30:32domonokyit works building them, but they wont be universal..
23:30:37Lloreanshotofadds: If it's incomplete, it's incomplete. How will it be "dead" if it's just relegated to an "In Development" section rather than claiming it's working and supported?
23:30:39shotofaddspreglow: I flashed the d2_rs.bin as I noticed the date had changed (but yeah it's just graphics and stuff)
23:31:05Lloreanshotofadds: People can still get it, and people can still download it. It's just excessively clear it's not finished yet.
23:31:10shotofaddsLlorean: sitting in limbo with no manual and no installer *ever* sounds pretty dead to me
23:31:24 Join sarixe [0] (
23:31:29LloreanI never said no manual. I said no linked manual.
23:31:35*gevaerts thinks that different people have different views of what "incomplete" means.
23:32:18LloreanI consider it "complete" when enough of the internal hardware is working that one can use it for the core functionality by simply installing Rockbox on it.
23:32:20gevaertsWe don't support TV out on the ipod video, and lots of ipod remotes. Does that make the ipod port incomplete and therefore unsupported ?
23:32:33Lloreangevaerts: None of those are "core" functionality, in any way, of Rockbox.
23:32:39scorche|shshotofadds: this really is a philosophy thing...calling the D2 port complete would be a complete change in what we have done in the past
23:32:42LloreanPlaying music and saving playlists are.
23:32:56Lloreanscorche|sh: That's debatable, this is a unique situation.
23:33:15scorche|shLlorean: i dont think would apply to other targets
23:33:29LloreanMaybe the iFP, I understand it had read-only flash access and could play music.
23:34:54LloreanWhat's wrong with calling it "In Development" if a binary's still made available?
23:35:13scorche|shnothing in my opinion
23:35:37shotofaddsLlorean: nothing, but I don't get why you said "no linked manual"
23:35:54*shotofadds is going for a cuppa. back in a bit
23:35:55gevaertsIf that means that it will effectively stay "In Development" forever, it may affect motivation
23:36:42scorche|shwell, we cant very well call it complete just like the other targets
23:36:50LloreanI would think "giving up and calling builds supported" would motivate people to more readily try to claim "workarounds are good enough"
23:37:19Lloreanshotofadds: If the wiki page is good enough for installing it, why do we need one?
23:38:36 Join jhulst [0] (n=jhulst@unaffiliated/jhulst)
23:39:24gevaertsI don't see any problem with separating full ports and limited ports, but I do see problems with hiding ports that are easy to install and perfectly usable by normal users provided they have an SD card.
23:39:58scorche|shas long as it is separate, i am fine
23:40:09LloreanI don't see putting it on the development page as hiding it.
23:40:15scorche|shand it isnt like we should be keeping anyone from making a manual for the device if they wish to
23:40:41shotofaddsLlorean: oh come on. There are plenty of people who know what an SD card is who shouldn't need to complete bootloaders and the like themselves. an easy patching method is a necessity, at least
23:40:54PaulJamlet the RSB decide ;)
23:40:56Lloreanshotofadds: And I never said anything against an easy patching method...
23:41:04shotofaddstrue :)
23:41:13*shotofadds is really going now.
23:41:45LloreanMy whole point, though, is that it should be "as clear as possible", not just "reasonably clear" that this version does not work like the other ones, and has unique and mandatory requirements for normal use.
23:42:11LloreanI think this is best served by not providing it in the same place as other builds, because people *will* skip past the fact that it's in a different table, or further down the page, or whatever.
23:42:35scorche|shwith a link of the burrent builds page/
23:42:45gevaertsI agree, but my point is that it should also be "as clear as possible" that these are not just random in development ports that maybe have a half-working bootloader
23:43:05LloreanThe current builds page can have a link to an anchor on the other page for "Other builds in varying states of usability" or some such
23:43:21Lloreangevaerts: We don't provide binaries for those at all, though...
23:43:31LloreanAs long as that policy doesn't change, there's nothing to get it confused with.
23:44:09gevaertsWe don't link to binaries for those.
23:44:26 Quit Horscht ("User was distributing pornography on server; system seized by FBI")
23:44:52gevaertsAnyway, I think we mostly agree, except maybe on minor details. We can solve those when preglow has finished the sd driver :)
23:45:05LloreanI mean, they need special install instructions anyway.
23:45:18 Quit bluebrother ("leaving")
23:45:23LloreanHow about a single link on the "Current Build" page to "Mostly Usable Ports"
23:45:25preglowlet's just introduce a "port status" or something :>
23:45:32gevaertsLlorean: That works
23:45:34LloreanOn that page we provide links to individual install instructions, and "current" binaries for each
23:45:43scorche|shLlorean: that is what i was thinking
23:45:49preglowFeature-complete ports and Partial ports
23:46:37LloreanAnd I really don't think they should show up in RBUtil by default. Maybe if some "Include in-development builds" option is set and a warning is given.
23:46:42preglowas long as we make it visible that a port is limited in some ways, i don't see any good reasons not to call them "supported"
23:47:04preglowbut it'd have to be very well visible
23:47:45gevaertsWhether we call them supported or not is irrelevant IMO. What is relevant is if we _can_ support what's there
23:47:49preglowLlorean: if you've fired up rbutil with the intent of installing it on your dap, you've already pretty much decided you're gonna go for it, no use in making it more difficult than it has to

23:48:25preglowi'd rather prefer a warning if you do try it, since that'd only be a simple "ok" to push instead of some option to switch on
23:48:34LloreanWhat's wrong with a single extra configuration option, especially if it's just a checkbox on the player select screen, and obvious?
23:49:23preglownothing wrong per se, just more difficult than it has to be
23:49:28scorche|shit would be easy to just have it under another root
23:49:30gevaertsHave Autodetect tell you "I didn't find a supported player, but turn on the less-supported-players options and try again"?
23:49:30preglowbut anyway, i'm gonna just not care about this
23:49:33LloreanAnd less misleading.
23:49:48preglowi'll do my coding no matter what people label the port
23:50:08Lloreangevaerts: Or even "Found Cowon D2: Build is usable but does not contain all functionality, continue?"
23:50:19preglowLlorean: sounds good
23:51:00gevaertsLlorean: Make that show a short summary of what's missing, and you;
23:51:03gevaerts're there
23:51:07LloreanI'm still dubious about using the term "Supported" the same way we do for more complete builds.
23:51:09preglowi'd be perfectly comfortable with that, less chances of people posting to ask why their d2 is not found
23:51:22LloreanThough I guess another possibility is splitting "Current Builds" into "Current Builds of Released Targets" and "Unreleased Targets"
23:51:33LloreanThen we can just leave the D2 without a release version.
