00:00:10amiconnThe second filler appears even more often than the first
00:00:27rasherI think I'll just cheat and edit the chars value manually
00:00:49amiconnfirst: 3658 times, second: 6400 times, total: 10058 times
00:00:52gevaertsrasher: cheating will get you disqualified from the contest

00:14:05amiconnyes. See here:
00:14:26amiconnIt counts the chars it passes.
00:15:07rasher this relies on the CHARS line being correct, then decreases as it leaves out chars
00:15:34*amiconn had that idea first, then found that counting directly is both easier and more reliable
00:16:17rasherIt's not an awful lot easier

00:18:40rasherStill seems to be complete (or very near complete)
00:19:30*amiconn wonders whether this script is worth keeping
00:20:06rasherThis shall be my final version:
00:20:16rasherI seem to have won
00:21:16rasherMore than 1 megabyte of filler characters removed!
00:23:43amiconn"This Unicode 5.1 version has 3658 filler glyphs for the Basic Mulitlingual Plane."
00:24:34amiconnSo this is the first one, and our filter is correct, and the other 6400 are the surrogate+private use fillers
00:24:36rasheramiconn: I don't suppose they have any sort of explanation for this?
00:25:32rasherNot really any particularly useful explanation
00:26:00rasherSeems to be something that just helps during development and should be stripped from releases.
00:26:10*amiconn agrees
00:27:40rasherAnd no easy way to contact the author/maintainer.

00:38:32rasherMy gut feeling says yes. Does it work on target?

01:40:37amiconnsaratoga: Fixed your patch?
01:41:23saratogaamiconn: no its actually more broken then I suspected
01:41:38saratogadepending on how its started it can either work or deadlock competely
01:41:45amiconnI didn't find an obvious error in your patch, but it doesn't apply to svn
01:41:59amiconnI wanted to try it in order to check my theory
01:42:04saratogathe logic seems fine so I suspect i'm doing something wrong with caching or volatile
01:42:11saratogaactually, a question
01:42:28amiconnYou are most probably not doing anything wrong. The codec loader probably does
01:42:46saratogaif I want to prevent gcc from optimizing away my busy waiting loops, is it enough to declare a struct member volatile, or do I have to make the entire struct volatile?
01:42:51amiconnI ran into a similar problem when doing greylib-on-COP
01:43:34amiconnThe simplest busywait loop is for (i=0; i<10000; i++) asm volatile ();
01:43:53saratogadid you use any of the rockbox built in synchronization functions?
01:44:01Zambezirasher: I saw Estonian isn't finished and a friend speaks it native. But he's hardly on MSN, but I can ask him. But I don't know how much time it might take?
01:44:20saratogajhMikeS got them to work for the SPC, so maybe the flags in IRAM approach isn't the best way to do this without me knowing a lot more about how rockbox works
01:44:40amiconnsaratoga: If it is the problem I am suspecting, it has nothing to do with synchronisation, but only with cache flushing/invalidation
01:44:51rasherZambezi: Estonian will probably take a good while. If he doesn't use Rockbox, I doubt he'll have the motivation
01:44:58amiconnThat's why I wanted to try it...
01:45:04saratogaamiconn: in theory, the is not a single byte in DRAM used by the second thread
01:45:06rasherZambezi: I'd guess a few hours
01:45:14amiconnsaratoga: In the loader....
01:45:15saratogaunless I missed one somewhere
01:45:29saratogahold on, i'll give you an updated patch
01:45:42saratogahopefully that actually applies
01:45:53amiconnIf there's some garbage in the cop cache, entering nearly anything with the cop may cause it to flsuh data, overwriting fine code...
01:45:55Zambezirasher: He don't, but his brother is more of a computerfreak.
01:46:04 Quit LambdaCalculus37 ("Do quit now, there's a demon around the corner!")
01:46:26amiconnSo the loader needs to make the main thread hop onto cop, flush cache, hop back, load codec, flush cpu cache, and only then start the codec

02:23:53LloreanIn fact it's preferable to do it second, so that you don't end up with a hard-to-boot player by rebooting it with the bootloader installed but no build.
02:23:57ZambeziLlorean: In this case it is imo.
02:24:01amiconnsaratoga4: It kind of works. It sounds wrong (but recognisable)
02:24:15amiconnI guess this is because of the reference to the previous frame
02:24:32saratoga4amiconn: thats where I am now too, although test codec still breaks so I suspect that its mostly luck
02:24:42amiconn(that data is malloced, hence in cached dram)
02:24:52LloreanZambezi: Why is it necessary to do it first? In this case, it's the only step he's apparently missed, so obviously it will be both first, last, and in the middle.
02:25:15saratoga4amiconn: which data is this?
02:25:17LloreanAnd if it's not the only step he's missed, why would it matter what order he does it in?
02:25:29saratoga4or rather which variable is this
02:25:46ZambeziLlorean: The best would be if he used the tool from the very beginning.
02:25:57LloreanZambezi: And that doesn't answer the question I asked you.
02:26:12pixelmaSoap: theme upload question: do I remember correctly that you said it would be best (wanted) to put the license as comment into the .wps and/or .cfg file too)? Should I always provide a full zip for easy installing (got one plain text wps where it seemed to be a bit overkill at first, but maybe if I provide the .cfg too to set the correct font...)
02:26:23amiconnThat one's a pointer, while mad_frame.sbsample is part of the struct itself
02:26:36ZambeziLlorean: That's maybe cause I understood I was wrong and forgot to answer. You're the pro and I was wrong.
02:27:28LloreanZambezi: Please be careful about giving advice in this channel. People have a habit of assuming that people who tell them such things really are always the experts, and pass such advice on. It then comes back to haunt us later.
02:27:51LloreanIf you're going to tell someone to do something, just tell them to do what the manual says if the manual addresses that process.
02:27:59saratoga4amiconn: unsigned char mad_main_data[MAD_BUFFER_MDLEN] IBSS_ATTR; ... frame.overlap = &mad_frame_overlap;
02:28:13saratoga4mad_fixed_t mad_frame_overlap[2][32][18] IBSS_ATTR;
02:28:18saratoga4malloc never gets called
02:28:30saratoga4looks like they just hacked around it to avoid having to edit frame.c
02:28:31amiconnIt doesn't?
02:28:40 Part toffe82
02:28:51ZambeziLlorean: That's why I just opened the manual and checked the part. I thought bootloader was mentioned first and it was, but not in the installation-part.
02:29:06saratoga4i put a blink to the LED around that call and it never lit up, so I don't think its called, though I can't be 100% sure its never called
02:29:17LloreanZambezi: Ah. In that case, since we're talking about order, "manual first, tell people things second" ;)
02:30:11sHARDI do wonder if the manual doesn't encourage Utility usage enough though, for some reason the only Utility guide is present on the wiki. Any reasons? That may have avoided his problem in the first place.

02:33:55amiconnsaratoga4: It looks like there are at least 2 problems in your code:
02:33:55sHARDLlorean: well having the manual install instructions suit me fine, they are always a good backup. The Utility install is mostly self explanitory but having such a small block of text may cause users to skip over that information as unimportant, especially when they think they may be in for a complex installation procedure.
02:34:40amiconnHmm, or not, only one:
02:34:48LloreansHARD: Yes, but if the manual install is at the end of the manual, they are less likely to skip since it's the only obvious install instructions.
02:35:05webguest05for the last jens arnold's commit: no svn mail notification, and no view-vc possible neither
02:35:39sHARDLlorean: true, I believe I advocate both the addition of the already existing Utility instuctions and possibly moving the manual install, I'm in no way disagreeing with you

03:23:46lee321987do I get any voice files from SVN (so I can include them in a build)?
03:24:47saratoga4i think you generate voice files locally, since they're made from the language file, not written like code
03:28:42n1swe do provide pre made english voice files though

04:14:57Davide-NYCLlorean: you bet
04:15:20lee321987Llorean: there's a place in RB Utility that wants the path to my TTS engine.

04:18:49lee321987what does RB Utility download when right before it creates a voice file (and can I get it to use my own version of whatever file it is?)
04:19:21Lloreanlee321987: The language file containing all the strings it needs to voice, I believe.
04:20:12lee321987I've changed my english.lang file −− does this mean my changes won't be reflected in the voice file?
04:20:43LloreanIf that's what it's downloading.
04:20:49LloreanIt may use the one on the player, I really don't know.
04:20:49Davide-NYCthe sendfirm utility (exe) throws the following output when it's finished send the firmware: ERROR: Could not close session! (amongst other output lines that are less worrisome) Should I worry?
04:21:27rasherLlorean: The language file on the player doesn't contain the voice strings, so that wouldn't work.
04:21:49Lloreanrasher: Ah, that makes sense.
04:22:06rasher(since the voice strings aren't displayed anywhere)
04:22:28LloreanWe should probably have a warning in RBUtil then, when creating a voice, that you need to have just installed a build for the file to be in sync.
04:23:24rasherShould be able to detect this automatically
04:23:44rasherOr at least detect when there's a high risk
04:24:29Davide-NYCI suspect (and it's only a hunch) that the USB disk mode code does not exit and/or unmount gracefully. Is this possible? I always have to ask WinXP to unmount the drives (there are two) twice before the filesystems are actually unmounted.
04:25:16LloreanDavide-NYC: That's an XP thing, though
04:25:37LloreanBasically, many UMS devices on XP require two attempts to unmount.
04:25:45lee321987are their commercial TTS engines? Will they all work with RB Utility?

04:27:20Lloreanlee321987: In many cases voices from a commercial TTS engine may be license-restricted so that you cannot redistribute the output
04:27:39LloreanDavide-NYC: I believe it's either already supported, or there's a patch for it in the tracker (GBS audio, that is)

04:28:25Davide-NYC(for the record) prior this this post, whenever I have typed GBS (in error) I intended to type GigabeatS
04:28:44Davide-NYCwhat thinks you of my error message?
04:30:18Davide-NYCI think it's in the bootloader and it has to do with switching modes between USB disk mode and rockbox. But I'm just guessing here.
04:31:09LloreanSoap: re that tradition, I'm fine with leaving it alone for now, but I think that whenever the new theme site does happen, that tradition can be quashed "for the greater good" of making everything consistent for RBUtil

08:16:39linuxstbOK... I know what the problem is - it's a bug in Rockbox (on BSD), not anything you're doing wrong.
08:17:24_empI modified the configure file, so that OpenBSD would follow the same compile build as FreeBSD, so that wouldn't error out.
08:17:28linuxstbThe problem is in tools/creative.c - it includes "elf.h" for all platforms apart from Apple, and uses "mac-elf.h" on other platforms.
08:17:37linuxstb(it's a relatively recent change)
08:17:42_empyes, creative.c fails
08:18:32linuxstbI'm not sure why it doesn't simply include "mac-elf.h" for all platforms - but that's the change you could try. i.e. replace that whole #if !defined(APPLE) block with a simple #include "mac-elf.h"

08:27:59IchigoMorinoDo you need the Apple firmware on an iPod to be able to install Rockbox on it?

08:28:30linuxstbIchigoMorino: Yes - you need a working ipod, which the Rockbox install tools will then modify.
08:28:56IchigoMorinoWell I just have it formatted like a removable hard drive right now.
08:28:59linuxstb_emp: The "*BSD" suggestion?
08:29:13linuxstbIchigoMorino: Then you need to repair it. What OS are you using? (Windows, Linux, ...)
08:29:44IchigoMorinoSo I tried installing iTunes on Linux (w/ Wine) and it isn't detecting my iPod, know a way to fix that?
08:29:51_emplinuxstb, yes?
08:30:37linuxstb_emp: You said "your code seems to work" - I was asking if that was the change to *BSD in configure, instead of your patch?
08:31:56IchigoMorinolinuxstb: My iPod isn't on there, I have a 30GB Color/Photo.
08:32:11_emplinuxstb, I can try it.
08:33:39_emplinuxstb, works
08:33:40linuxstbIchigoMorino: Then you could try downloading the 60GB ipod color partition table, then manually delete the second partition, and recreate it it to fill your disk. (I would use the command-line fdisk tool for that)
08:34:10linuxstb_emp: OK, thanks. I'll commit that. I'll leave the creative.c change to the person that wrote that file though.
08:35:00_emplinuxstb, is there anything special I need to do to patch my iPod after doing a gmake fullzip besides copying the files over?
08:35:17linuxstb_emp: Is this the first time you've installed Rockbox?
08:35:56IchigoMorinolinuxstb: Isn't there anywhere I can just get info on how it is supposed to be partitioned so I can do it manually?
08:35:59_empI did it with windows since I couldn't get this compile earlier. If I had not done it, would that change the approach?
08:37:04linuxstb_emp: As well as the, you also need to install the bootloader, using ipodpatcher (which should hopefully compile fine on BSD)
08:37:28_emplet me test out a comple of the ipodpatcher
08:38:08linuxstbIchigoMorino: No. The ipodlinux wiki has that info, but the site's been down for a while.
08:38:13_empthat is just the B option in ../tools/configure ?
08:38:50linuxstb_emp: No, that's how you compile the bootloader, which you don't need to do (it's recommended to use the tested official binaries for bootloaders, rather than building yourself)

08:40:25linuxstbIchigoMorino: If you do as I suggested, you could see how the partition table should look for a 60GB ipod. You can then delete it, and create a similar one for your disk.
08:40:52GodEaterthe 30 and 60GB models should have the same size firmware partition
08:41:04GodEaterthere weren't any extra features that needed more space iirc

12:29:21krz_gevaerts: hm, i thought it shoould be included automaticaly in QT. on windows everything works
12:29:55gevaertsDepends on the compiler. I use gcc 4.3, which is pretty strict with these things
12:31:07gevaertsIt's the only compile error though

12:49:33 Join culture [0] (
12:49:47krz_gevaerts: so, this is temporary solution, cause qt doesn't support removing of not empty dirs. but nevertheless, it takes only temporary dirs generated by the app

12:51:09gevaertskrz_: as long as it really only removes those, it's fine. I just want to be sure that there are no corner cases where it accidentally deletes something else
12:52:41gevaertskrz_: normal builds seem to still work
12:52:54krz_thats good :)
12:54:27gevaertskrz_: it seems that sometimes cleanTemp() runs with an empty mTmpWpsString. Then it runs "rm -rf" as such. Not necessariy a big problem, but I think it should check for that case

14:06:05deltsorry wrong channel
14:06:22*gevaerts has heard about it

14:07:11deltthat was aimed at the schism tracker channel (the project in which we're using a mangled version of modplug)
14:07:42ShortYuteok any body have any idea what work is needed in the midi plugin
14:08:01 Join mrkiko [0] (
14:08:28B4gderShortYute: I'm sure just testing it with some midi files will reveal some of that
14:09:43ShortYuteu mean the buffer miss "b4gder"
14:10:37*B4gder tries to decipher what's being said
14:11:05B4gderI have no idea what's lacking, I'm suggesting ways how you can figure out yourself instead of asking around here for it
14:11:23n1sShortYute: the buffer miss is caused by the midi plugin being too slow to fill the buffer before it is needed, so what is needed is to make it faster :)
14:11:31delt<delt> i'm looking into porting modplug −−preferably the one from schism−− to a plugin for rockbox
14:11:57GodEaterand now he's speaking to himself....
14:11:57n1sit also makes quite a bit of assumptions about the patchset used which makes it work only with the one we provide, which is bad
14:12:13n1sand it would be much nicer to have it as a real codec...
14:12:22ShortYuteyeah we need to get a better one
14:13:01deltn1s: "faster" being dependent on what hardware it's running
14:13:23GodEaterdelt: well no, faster is always better
14:13:44deltGodEater: i mean "how much" faster
14:13:51ShortYute*i hve a sansa e250r* faster is not that eazy
14:13:52n1syes, if it were faster we could enable more voices, have nicer decays etc
14:14:11GodEaterdelt: how about "as fast as it can be made to go" ?
14:14:19n1sdelt: yes, it is quite usable on coldfire but unusable on pp
14:14:37n1sShortYute: no one said it was easy
14:15:00ShortYuteok i have an idea mabe we could have 2 midi plugins one for simple midis and one for complex midi
14:15:05delt<GodEater> and now he's speaking to himself....
14:15:18delti was just pasting what i said in #schism
14:15:32GodEaterah ok ;)
14:16:04deltsee, we're using a rather mangled version of modplug in schism tracker
14:16:28n1sShortYute: how would that help?
14:16:39deltwith lots of playback bugs fixed from the original modplug
14:16:46ShortYute...we would optimise it for both targets
14:17:19GodEater"both" targets ?
14:17:45gevaertsShortYute: you mean it's likely that a midi player that can handle complex midi will have problems with simple midi?
14:18:48gevaertsThen why do you want both?
14:18:55ShortYutegevaerts:no the opossite
14:19:30gevaertsWhy do you want the 'simple midi' plugin then?
14:19:56ShortYutethen it would not give the buffer miss msg
14:20:01amiconnn1s: If coldfire were restricted to 44.1kHz pcm it would also be slow. But on cf we can use 22.05kHz
14:21:29ShortYuteok first lets see what we can do about the voices
14:21:36gevaertsShortYute: if you have a plugin that handles complex midi properly, it will also handle simple files easily.
14:21:57mrkikoinally, rockbox crashed again :)
14:22:02gevaertsAnd if you don't have a plugin that handles complex midi, you don't have two plugins...
14:22:11mrkikobut even now, I have no idea on how to reproduce this. Waiting / trying again...
14:22:28ShortYutegevaerts *the sansa does not handle complex midi properly* buffer miss
14:22:50gevaertsAnd how will making two plugins solve that?
14:23:20ShortYuteok 4 get it.... how do you create voices?
14:23:41B4gder4 gets it?
14:23:46gevaertsShortYute: please use real words. "4 get" is meaninless nonsense
14:23:59deltyeah d00d

14:25:37deltdoes the midi plugin do reverb? that eats up a lot of cpu
14:26:01delta simple multitap delay would sound just as nice, and be much faster cpu wise I meant midi voices
14:26:13delt(except for drums)
14:26:57n1samiconn: yes, true but it would probably be faster than pp still
14:28:29*amiconn doubts that
14:29:19n1shmm, the hack to use the intermediary iram buffer should only be used for coldfire...

21:30:33mcuelenaerelinuxstb: hmm I must've missed that one
21:30:47linuxstbOr even just copy/paste the contents of mac-elf.h into creative.c

21:44:32mcuelenaereCasainho: you probably don't have a crt0.S

21:44:57Casainhomcuelenaere: I have but inside other directory... why on makefile
21:45:23mcuelenaereCasainho: then the compiler is looking in the wrong directory, tell him to look in the correct one
21:45:24linuxstbIs it included in the firmware/SOURCES file for your target?
21:45:44CasainhoI will look - tahnks
21:46:32Casainhomy SOURCES are this:
21:46:34linuxstbIt's possibly also related to your .lds file - that specifies crt0.o as well, and needs to be the same path
21:46:37Casainho#if CONFIG_CPU == AT91SAM9260
21:48:44ZambeziYou can set the mAh of the battery, but what if the battery's mAh got a higher value then you can choose? 2000 mAh in this case.

21:50:36Zambezidomonoky: Good. Cause I'm going to do battery bench with standard and with replacement and want to make sure it's right.
21:51:24Casainholinuxstb: I continue to have the error - the strange is that there is no crt0.s file under target/arm!!
21:52:25Bagdertarget/arm/* have many crt0.S files
21:52:41Bagderfind firmware/target/arm -name "*.S" | grep crt
21:52:55mcuelenaereCasainho: what does your lds file says?
21:52:56bluebrotherCasainho: take care of the casing −− crt0.s isn't the same as crt0.S ...
21:53:21bertrikSpeaking of battery bench, the current version simply ACKs a USB connection event, but maybe it should flush it measurement buffer to disk before doing so. On sansa, rockbox is supposed to reboot, possibly throwing away battery measurements.
21:53:49gevaertsbertrik: good idea STARTUP(target/arm/at91sam/rockboxplayerlittle/crt0.o)
21:54:55CasainhoSOURCES: #if CONFIG_CPU == AT91SAM9260
21:55:21mcuelenaeretry adding '#error Yes' after the #if command
21:55:30mcuelenaere(then you'll know whether it is really executed)
21:55:37domonokyand CONFIG_CPU is really defined as AT91SAM9260 ?
21:55:47bertrikAlso, battery bench may also need a mutex to prevent two threads (the battery bench thread and any other thread triggering a ata_idle callback) trying to flush the buffer at the same time, very unlikely but theoretically possible
21:56:09Casainhoon target/arm i just got 2 crt0 files: mcuelenaere #if coomand in which file?
21:56:44mcuelenaerefirmware/SOURCES: after "#if CONFIG_CPU == ...", add "#error CONFIG_CPU is correct"
21:57:03mcuelenaere"#if CONFIG_CPU == AT91SAM9260" of course
21:57:13Casainho#define CONFIG_CPU AT91SAM9260
21:57:55mcuelenaerewell ok, if you have that defined it isn't necessary to check it anymore

22:02:59linuxstbCasainho: "9260" would be a reasonable choice - it just needs to be unique amongst the other CPU defines
22:03:21bluebrotherCasainho: the preprocessor can only operate with int numbers. So CONFIG_CPU needs to be a number, which is hidden behind that AT91SAM9260
22:03:56amiconnBagder: Afaik the preprocessor can handle 64 bit ints

23:01:56pixelmaSoap: you around?

23:05:21Zambezigevaerts: Just music, maybe radio. It's not for me.
23:05:37gevaertsHow much storage do you need?
23:05:49gevaerts"you" = whoever this is for :)
23:05:54pixelmawhat music formats?
23:06:29ZambeziMP3. And 8 GB will do. Depending on price and how hard it is to find.
23:06:37gevaerts8GB means e200
23:06:55*gevaerts hopes it will do. It's the largest available...
23:07:14Bagderor get a smaller and insert a microsd
23:07:41bluebrotheror get a mini and cf-mod it :)
23:08:08gevaertsAt least it rules out the nano and the ondio
23:08:10ZambeziThe user is like 50+ year, completely inexperienced about computer so Rockbox might be a risky shot, but it's still easier just to drag n drop.
23:09:17 Quit ompaul (Client Quit)
23:10:12gevaerts50+ years also may mean large fonts. In that case the c200 also drops out
23:11:53ZambeziI can write a guide so db autoupdate etc. Video won't be used at all.
23:12:27gevaertsI'd recommend not trying to fiddle with microsd cards.
23:13:23gevaertsIf 4GB would be sufficient, you get either an ipod nano 1st gen or an e200 v1 (e260, e270 or e280). If you need more, I think basically the e280 is your only choice

23:31:05Guest64806hey guys, it's been over a year since i've installed rockbox on my ipod nano... does the bootloader require updating?
23:31:41gevaertsI'm not sure, but probably yes.
23:32:26Zambezigevaerts: Sansa E280 is a really good choice. And you can use it with microSD-card too. I think that will be perfect.
23:32:42gevaertsZambezi: I think so, yes. Now you only need to find a v1
23:33:52gevaertsGuest64806: make sure you have a look at the manual again. I don't think our nice graphical installer existed back then...
23:35:08gevaertsOr maybe it did. Depends on when exactly you looked last time
23:38:42Zambezigevaerts: Shoot! I just found a E280.
23:38:56gevaertsZambezi: a v1?
23:39:57Zambezigevaerts: It's not specified.
23:40:17Zambezigevaerts: Probably not a v1.
23:40:31gevaertsThen you'll need to ask. Try to get the firmware version.
