#rockbox log for 2008-07-22

00:00:09peturhmmm when I change all the SYSFONT_ lang strings to normal ones for the rec screen, should I depricate the SYSFONT ones and leave them in, adding the new ones?
00:00:31peturor just rename them everywhere
00:00:49amiconnI guess renaming would be ok here, as there are no non-sysfont alternatives
00:01:20peturbut I ĺl have to rename them in all lang files or genlang won't like it, right?
00:02:02amiconnYou don't have to, but it would be better
00:02:12 Quit Vorador ("Ex-Chat")
00:02:27amiconnOtherwise all other languages would lose their translations for these strings, and fall back to english
00:02:45petur... wthat I thought... not good

05:46:16num1I was just looking through the code for the sansa e200 series, and I noticed rockbox acts like the PP5024 processor is a PP5020 processor. However the 5024 supports quite a few things that I know through experience rockbox supports, but the PP5020 doesn't. How can this be? (As example of something the PP5020 doesn't support is more than 256M of flash memory, where my Sansa e280 has 8G)
05:49:07num1is anyone here that worked on the e200 port?

06:06:01saratogawe don't actually assume the PP5024 is exactly the same as the PP5020, however they're similar enough that for most things the differences can be ignored

10:59:13num1Imaginal: well, I probably said that one wrong, but if you didn't understand me then it's probably not your problem. I once spent 2 months trying to figure out why my mp3s didn't play to find they were encoded as mp2s. I though you might have some unsupported format with an mp4 extension
10:59:31LloreanImaginal: You'll need to find your own tool then, if that's the problem.

11:10:15GodEaterImaginal: I think it's something as simple as "mp4creator -optimize <your .m4a file>"
11:11:08ImaginalLooks right, there is artwork saved to them, so I'm wondering if that matters. Optimizing now
11:12:17GodEaterwell try the optimize first, if that doesn't help, then remove the artwork
11:13:33*amiconn hates codecs which crash on problematic files
11:13:50ImaginalGood news and bad news...
11:14:13Lloreanamiconn: It's the MP4 parser, not the codec itself (just to be precise), it encounters the same issues with ALAC.
11:14:35amiconnOk, but that wasn't really the point
11:14:41ImaginalOptimizing worked... but now I have to fix a bunch of m4a... :P

12:11:10linuxstbsoap: I noticed your "ipod accessories" build - are you sure it works on the 3G? I would have thought the serial driver was just for pp502x (i.e. 4th gen and later)
12:12:17soapI have no idea - no 3G to play with. I simply built for all with the Dock Connector. ;)
12:12:25linuxstbAlso, even though the 1st/2nd gen don't have a dock connector, they might have a serial port via the "remote control connector" which (on my ipod Color at least) is next to the headphone socket. But I don't know when that was introduced (I know it was removed with the Nano/Video).
12:16:33soapI can add those this evening.

12:26:57soapnot at all, why do you ask?

13:59:08LloreanYou'd probably be best off asking in the thread for it in the forums.
13:59:32wpyhI googled for it and it seems that the correct one is mipsel-elf
13:59:33linuxstbwpyh: I would look at "svn blame tools/configure" and see who added the line to use mipsel-linux, and ask them.

14:00:11*wpyh will try svn blame as linuxstb says

14:04:28BigBambiFor now, that is probably mcuelenaere
14:04:36wpyhok :)
14:04:37Nico_Plinuxstb: yeah, I think it would be nice to have some stats... the ability to sort themes by most downloaded would be nice
14:04:56Nico_Pmaybe even having ratings, but I might be getting a little carried away
14:05:10wpyhstats+ratings are commonly used on sites like kde-look
14:05:21wpyhI think it would be a good idea
14:05:51wpyhthe downside may be that new themes don't get looked at because most people download only the most-downloaded or highly-rated themes
14:06:47wpyhhm... lots of missing #define's when building the vx747 target −− I guess I'll just wait for mcuelenaere
14:07:17wpyhbtw, does anyone notice the change on IpodConversionToFAT32?
14:07:24Nico_Pa way to see new additions would be nice too... it's hard to see which themes are new when tere are already lots
14:07:47wpyhI made the mformat section "old, alternative" and suggested newfs_msdos as the correct way
14:08:10wpyhI've tested it on a friend's macbook, and both RB and the OF runs fine
14:08:43wpyhadditionally, I've captured the output of 'file' before and after the operation, and they display very similar structures indicating that they may be based on the same code
14:08:54wpyhshould I make it available?

16:38:29tonsOfSparksit's on teh default value. I'm assuming that's all. when i use the file browser i get the SYSTEM folder. whenever i plug into my computer i see my music folder, etc, but under rockbox i see SYSTEM folder and the Version.txt file
16:38:51BigBambiWhat is on the default value?
16:39:39tonsOfSparksoh ,yeah, sorry - the "view Files" setting is on the dafault value
16:39:51BigBambiYou just said you can see everything under file browser (in Rockbox). If you cannot, as Strife89 said, turn show files setting to all. The Sansa OF hides the music folder (annoyingly)
16:40:25BigBambiYou can either put your music in a different folder of your choosing, or you can set show all files to all
16:40:38BigBambiThis is a different issue to the database not finishing building though
16:40:40 Quit Nibbl (Read error: 113 (No route to host))
16:40:46Strife89Then, if your music shows up, try to play it from the File Browser.
16:40:58Strife89One step at a time. :)

16:43:56tonsOfSparksok, i set it to view all files, and now i get ALL the folders, as normal, but when i enter my music folder i see none of the subfolders or files that are supposed to be there.
16:45:00tonsOfSparksi'll try deleting all my music and syncing again, i'll see if that helps
16:45:06BigBambiAnd you transfered this music in MSC mode?
16:45:28tonsOfSparksuh.. no that was the music I had on befire i installed rockbox.
16:45:33BigBambiI'd put it in a different folder to Music this time, it'll be a lot easier in the long run
16:45:53BigBambitonsOfSparks: As I said, you need to use MSC to transfer music that Rockbox will see
16:46:01BigBambiMTP changes names and stuff
16:47:01tonsOfSparksoh! will the sansa OS see the music i transfered in MSC? (just wondering)
16:51:46Strife89tonsofSparks: I just uploaded a theme port to the WPS gallery if you want to try it later.
16:56:03 Part Strife89
16:56:16tonsOfSparksok, I'm assuming that I can't use RockBox to play DRM'd Spiralfrog downloads, am I right?
16:56:34LambdaCalculus37That's right.
16:56:37tonsOfSparkscan I play WMA's at all?
16:56:49LambdaCalculus37As long as they're not encumbered by DRM.

17:23:36stonyhi guys
17:23:58stonycan i reconfigure rockbox the way to lock all the menus and only put a few settings available to use it as a audio guide ?
17:24:41LambdaCalculus37Yes you can, but that will require you to edit the source code and compile a new build.
17:26:25stonyhmm dirty hack, i see
17:26:51stonybut that would be ok
17:29:00stonyi'm missing the "license" point on the homepage
17:29:35LambdaCalculus37Rockbox is under GPLv2 or later.
17:30:37stonyhmm this virii thingie
17:32:07*rasher doesn't see why this would be a big issue if you're building an audio guide
17:32:48stonyrasher: i hate the point that i have to release the code i've written for some company back under the gpl, and make it public
17:33:30stonybut i don't want to start a licensing-(meta)-discussion here - i'm sorry for that
17:34:33rasherstony: No, it's fine. We do it once in a while. You don't have to release the code to the world. Just to people you're distributing binaries to. And that's the price for using "our" code as a base.
17:36:33stonyrasher: as far as i understand the gpl i have to distribute the changed code to everony who wants it, binary or not, or at least i have to make an offer for at least 3 years to "spread the code"
17:37:01stonyso as far as i understand it, i have to give to code ALWAYS away
17:37:16stonyi think the *BSD-"do with it what you want"-style is the better one
17:37:58 Join borges|afk [0] (
17:38:11rasherstony: I'm pretty sure that's a misunderstanding, you only have to distribute source to people who you've distributed binaries to. If you code the stuff, and it's used internally by a company, the only people who have the right to ask you for source is the company.
17:38:32 Nick borges|afk is now known as borges (
17:38:50rasherOf course, they're then free to release the source to the world, but that's the price you pay for piggy-backing on our work.
17:39:53rasherI'm mostly a fan of BSD-style licenses as well, but you have to respect the wishes of the authors.
17:41:58stonysure i do
17:43:01stonyi hack it, compile it, test it, publish it, and then i delete the source ;D
17:43:04stonyjust a joke
17:43:07peturwell if you don't want to release your code but do want to grab all the work the OSS community did, they go and write it all yourself. OSS is about giving and taking, not taking and taking
17:43:54stonythe point is not the giving and taking - the point is more the licensing-lawyer-thingie
17:44:04peturno it is not
17:44:13stonyit is
17:44:18LambdaCalculus37It is not.
17:44:33*petur hands LambdaCalculus37 a beer
17:44:54LambdaCalculus37petur: Thanks! :)
17:45:40stonyone example: a few days ago i was thinking about hacking a piece of software that does imap - it and the modules in it, are under 10 different licenses, some bsd style, some gpl style ... if i go and hack this piece of soft, i have to get a lawyer later to safe my neck ...
17:45:46stonyi bet 101%
17:46:09peturah, mixing licenses is something else
17:47:18stonyalso i think that this gpl-thing sometimes avoids software-patches, add-ons, whatever 'cause the ppl that are programming on it don't like the license style
17:48:15LambdaCalculus37What kind of rubbish talk is that, and from where in your butt did you get that one from?
17:48:46scorche|shif you dont like the GPL, dont use GPL-ed code...simple
17:48:47LambdaCalculus37Do you know how many people have contributed addons and patches to this project?
17:49:00stonythe freedom that is given to the user/developer on the one side is taken from some developers on the other side, as they only want to develope something on top of that, and their software is GPLed later because it used some libs ...

19:58:05domonokycodesuperking: anywhere you like..
19:58:07LambdaCalculus37Anywhere you'd like.
19:58:19scorche|shwhichever you want although we dont suggest the .rockbox folder
19:58:19PaulJamanywhere you want (preferrably not the .rockbox folder)
19:58:34scorche|shcodesuperking: might i suggest having a look at the manual?
19:58:36Bagdercodesuperking: we also have a great manual
19:58:41codesuperkingI added in Ipod_Control in F00 folder
19:58:50domonokyfor the videos: you have to covert them to right format and size, see wiki.. :-)
19:58:55codesuperkingHowever unable to navigate to that file using rockbox
19:59:12scorche|shcodesuperking: you need to change the file view option...but it is easier to just not use that folder
19:59:49codesuperkingI have read the manual before posting here but the manual does not clarify which folder which is the reason I ask here
20:00:04scorche|shbecause there is no specific folder
20:00:04LambdaCalculus37Rockbox doesn't care where you copy videos to.
20:00:07codesuperkingI have downloaded elephants dream
20:00:22LambdaCalculus37Make a /HeapOfMovies folder, for all Rockbox cares.
20:01:05codesuperking@LambdaCalculus37: What is the meaning of / in /HeapOfMovies
20:01:15LambdaCalculus37Folder designation.
20:01:41LambdaCalculus37On Windows, that would be X:\HeapOfMovies (replace X: with your nano's drive letter).

20:25:33LambdaCalculus37You're in the right channel.
20:29:00LambdaCalculus37This is where the devs come to talk.
20:30:33scorche|shwhy exactly do we need yet another guide?:
20:31:11LambdaCalculus37scorche|sh: Strife89 wrote that one.
20:33:36LloreanI think that guide will inspire bad questions
20:33:48LloreanI suspect some people will try "cd /home/username" only to find such a directory does not exist.
20:34:51LambdaCalculus37I wonder why he didn't just write "cd ~" instead, since that's basically the same switch.
20:35:27 Join neddy [0] (n=john@nat/sun/x-4ad76c532338fb72)
20:36:12LloreanI almost kinda think we should dump the SimpleGuide pages and and make include and mention adding them to your path.
20:36:14scorche|sheither way, why write yet another one instead of just improving the current "simple guide"?
20:36:23*LambdaCalculus37 shrugs
20:36:39LambdaCalculus37I think we should talk to him about merging the two pages back into one.
20:37:05LloreanThen put some notes on it like "Compiling Rockbox is a technical process and should be done by someone with familiarity with their host operating system and the environment they're compiling in. If you don't understand the guide's instructions it is recommended that you seek tutorials for your environment"
20:37:26LambdaCalculus37Llorean: Good idea.
20:41:15codesuperkingFriends I would prefer starting with documentation to gain some familiarity with rockbox terminology. I am adept at writing good manuals apart from good coding - (sorry for some immodesty ;-) )
20:41:39Lloreancodesuperking: Well the manual and the code are both available via our SVN repository
20:41:53LloreanAnd we accept patches to both by way of the patch tracker linked to on nearly every page of the site
20:41:55scorche|shcodesuperking: do you know tex?
20:42:14codesuperkingno but I can learn it
20:43:03codesuperkingI think tex will be useful if the code is in some state of already some documentation. Otherwise it will be whole lot of time
20:43:04num1codesuperking: from what I remember tex takes more than a little effort to learn
20:43:48codesuperkingIf the intention is to generate docs from code, may i suggest doxygen that I have used in many of my projects
20:44:32LambdaCalculus37Ummm, we use TeX for the manual.
20:44:39LambdaCalculus37LaTeX, to be exact.
20:45:34codesuperkingWhat is the current state of this type of document ?
20:46:00domonokyyou can see your self, the manual is linked from the webpage.. :-)
20:46:14LambdaCalculus37And the manual source code is in the SVN trunk.
20:46:41num1The way the menus are currently implemented, is there anyway to make an animation across menus? Like when you choose database the current menu slides off the screen to be replaced by the selected menu
20:46:45domonokyand we do generate specific manuals for every target out of one manual Tex "source - code" :-)
20:46:56num1how hard would that be to code, or would it require a rewrite of some parts

21:07:23*BigBambi claims drinking alcohol != alcoholic
21:07:47*GodEater_ would agree with that claim
21:07:59linuxstbshotofadds: I tried the SVN NAND code on my Logik DAX, without any success (nothing mounted), but I'm not really sure what I need to look for/at...
21:08:05*GodEater_ hides his half empty vodka bottle
21:08:28num1This is getting a little offtopic
21:08:37GodEater_beer is never off topic
21:08:38BigBambibeer is always on topic
21:09:14nardulAm i correct in assuming that rockbox only uses fat32?
21:09:16*GodEater_ high fives BigBambi
21:09:19GodEater_nardul: yes
21:09:26num1nardul: you're correct
21:09:34BigBambiat fat16 on removable cards IIRC
21:09:38domonokyand fat16 :-)
21:09:49nardulAm i further correct in assuming that no other FS will be support for a while?
21:09:51shotofaddslinuxstb: yes, I saw that in the logs. I'm 90% sure the 77x driver works as well as it does on the D2, but it seems the smaller block size on the 1Gb chips means block translation errors occur more often (including logical sector 0...)
21:09:58BigBambinardul: I'd say so

21:10:17GodEater_there is no reason to support another FS
21:10:33linuxstbshotofadds: Is there anything I can do to verify that the raw reads are working correctly? Or are you confident about those?
21:10:45LambdaCalculus37Another FS means bloated code, which we don't want.
21:10:59LambdaCalculus37Besides, all the major OS'es support FAT32.
21:11:10GodEater_plus no other FS is supported on as many OSs
21:11:21nardulGodEater_, There's many good reasons to support another fs. Fat is giving me many problems. And i'd like to have big files on there. And worst of all, fat sucks pipes.
21:11:32nardulBut you have points.
21:11:44num1LambdaCalculus37: you keep talking about bloated code, wouldn't it be possible to do a unix'ism and write filesystem handlers as plugins?
21:11:45linuxstbnardul: Then write a new filesystem driver... Basically, it's going to be a _lot_ of work, for very small gain.
21:12:00linuxstbI would like to see someone do it though (but others disagree...).
21:12:12LambdaCalculus37num1: What linuxstb said also applies to you.
21:12:13nardullinuxstb, I'd like to, but i'm afraid i'm not smart enough.
21:12:19shotofaddslinuxstb: raw reads are fine. the tests I've done involve writing known values to the volume from Windows, then reading them back using the Rockbox driver. The errors in block translation occur because there are multiple physical blocks marked with the same logical block number - the problem is figuring out which copy is correct
21:12:56linuxstbshotofadds: That's on an m200 though?
21:13:02nardulext2 would be pretty sweet though.
21:13:22shotofaddslinuxstb: both. the translation scheme is exactly the same
21:13:24*LambdaCalculus37 is glad shotofadds is having fun with the m240 :)

21:13:28GodEater_it would only be of use to unix users though

21:13:48*shotofadds thinks it'd be more fun if the screen worked
21:14:06LambdaCalculus37shotofadds: Still can't get it to work correctly?
21:14:11nardulGodEater_, There's drivers for windows. And mac. And it's a better FS. imo. And even i have to add drivers for fat in linux.
21:14:11shotofaddslinuxstb: m200 and D2. I doubt the DAX/M200 differ significantly
21:14:36BigBambinardul: You have to add fat drivers to linux?
21:14:36GodEater_nardul: really? what weird distro are you using then ?
21:14:41BigBambiWhat odd distro?
21:14:43linuxstbSo I do, but it could be useful to confirm that.
21:14:47shotofaddsLambdaCalculus37: nope. the ribbon connector seems to have a dodgy connection, but I can't seem to make it better.
21:15:12nardulI use gentoo, there's not much to it. But in principle...
21:15:39LambdaCalculus37shotofadds: Must've been when I accidentally bumped the ribbon into the front panel when closing it. Sorry. :)
21:15:51scorche|shnardul: it still is a lot of work for a little gain not to mention the disadvantages...really you are going to have to learn how if you want it
21:15:51*GodEater_ doesn't every remember having to "add" Fat support when he ran gentoo
21:15:53GodEater_when did they remove it ?
21:16:13*LambdaCalculus37 remembers FAT support in Gentoo when he ran a LiveCD of it
21:16:15GodEater_and why for gods sake?

21:16:25GodEater_that's a dumb decision
21:16:40 Part codesuperking
21:16:41nardulGodEater_, You add it in the kernel.
21:16:47num1maybe support was bloating the system ;)
21:16:56GodEater_it's a default option in the kernel last time I built in gentoo
21:17:03GodEater_you have to *remove* it if you dont want it
21:17:05GodEater_not the other way round
21:17:49*GodEater_ remembers why he stopped running gentoo
21:17:52nardulWow, bad argument then.
21:17:58rasherBesides, some of our targets won't boot if not running on FAT.

21:19:35GodEater_there are essentially zero people here willing to implement it
21:19:47GodEater_so if anyone wants it, they're going to *have* to do it themselves
21:19:47nardulI'm just annoyed aswell, fat32 and rsync are giving me problems. Filenames are limited, and char-cases change.
21:19:59nardulGodEater_, If i ever get smart enough, i might.

21:23:21nardul*sigh*, a folder can't be called "R", it's translated to "r", "CD1" will be renamed to "cd1". I like nitpicking, but i have a fever.
21:23:21shotofaddslinuxstb: it'd be quite easy to verify that reads are working on the DAX. Write a file with known data to the DAX and write a simple loop in ata_init() to scan the first few bytes of every physical sector for that string. I'll pastebin you some code to do it, if you like.
21:23:32num1okay, so say I'm crazy enough to attempt to port libpng to rockbox, where would I find information on including a codec in the rockbox source code?
21:23:57GodEater_a codec ?
21:24:05GodEater_I'd do it as a plugin first...
21:24:07scorche|shyou mean a plugin/viewer?
21:24:12LambdaCalculus37I imagine so.
21:24:14num1erm, yeah, I meant a viewer
21:24:27scorche|shthere are a few guides in the wiki
21:24:44GodEater_and the code in the jpegviewer would probably be a good starter too
21:27:46linuxstbshotofadds: Sure, thanks.
21:28:19linuxstbnum1: Also look at the "helloworld.c" plugin, plus plugin.h and all the other plugins.
21:28:44GodEater_nardul: you can specify the mount option shortname=mixed to your fat32 volumes if you want to preserve case
21:29:04GodEater_still won't make the system case sensitive, but the display will be as you want
21:29:26GodEater_allegedly :)
21:29:30*GodEater_ hasn't ever tried it
21:29:49*linuxstb notices the "posix" option, which would seem to allow two files with the same name (only varying in case)
21:29:57nardulGodEater_, You will know in a second!
21:30:28*linuxstb uses it, when he remembers...
21:31:06nardullinuxstb, shortname=posix that is?
21:31:53*GodEater_ wonders what man page linuxstb is reading
21:32:46GodEater_nardul: no, it's not shortname=posix, it's just posix on it's own
21:32:51MU{lappy}prolly mount. mine has a "posix" option (bare, not shortname=) that claims to do that.
21:32:53*GodEater_ wonders how the hell that works
21:33:33num1GodEater_: magic, and a little bit of smoke and mirrors
21:33:36MU{lappy}prolly this should be in community?
21:33:39linuxstbnardul: No, just "posix"
21:33:47MU{lappy}and i imagine the results aren't nice if you mount on windows
21:33:56GodEater_no, probably not
21:34:58*GodEater_ notes it's not a default option used by ubuntu's hal install
21:35:05GodEater_nor is the shortname one
21:35:28nardulneither in gentoo. Surprise.
21:35:31shotofaddslinuxstb: save a file on your DAX that begins with a unique string eg. "RoCkBoXx" and try something like this:

22:04:37itchegI, see and I guess it's not very high on the priority list... o well
22:05:33linuxstbNo, I'll try and look at them soon - there are a few sudoku patches rotting on the tracker. (I wrote it in the first place)

23:45:56shotofaddsok, there ox2000 blocks, so it's done the full search
23:46:14shotofadds*there are
23:47:10shotofaddsps:0x60 p:16 s:0 means your string was found at physical segment (block) 0x60, page 16, sector 0
23:47:41shotofaddsLS:0348 is logical segment (block) 0x348 - ie. where your string was in the UMS volume
23:48:10linuxstbHow is the m200 formatted? Is there a partition table?
23:48:14shotofaddsso.. I think we can surmise that raw reads work fine on the DAX
23:48:23shotofaddsmine is FAT16 superfloppy

23:48:33*linuxstb should enable FAT16 support...
23:48:55*shotofadds points linuxstb to the forum post which says to enable HAVE_FAT16SUPPORT :p
23:49:25linuxstbThe Logik DAX forum thread? ;)
23:49:51shotofaddshmm, good piont
23:50:24linuxstbSeems to work ;)
23:50:41linuxstbI no longer get a mount error.
23:50:43shotofaddsyou probably won't be able to read any files though, I can't.
23:51:03shotofaddsthere seem to be way more translation errors than on the D2, I guess because of the smaller block size
23:52:27shotofaddsbtw. this evening wrote 512Mb of sequential sectors to the D2 UMS volume, and read them all back using the Rockbox driver without _any_ errors. I wonder if the same happens if my writes are a little more random?

23:53:08days_of_ruinDont shoot me for asking, but is rockbox on the sansa fuze?
23:53:16num1days_of_ruin: no
23:53:28scorche|shdays_of_ruin: the list of what rockbox runs on is on the front page
23:53:37num1days_of_ruin: I don't believe anybody's working on it either, sorry
23:54:01*shotofadds will test random writes tomorrow. I need to dash.
