#rockbox log for 2008-09-29

00:00:03DementioSevs, does your connector automatically boot the ipod?
00:00:13SevsDementio: yes it does
00:00:19peturj6: please stay on topic here
00:00:39lol3izerwatch out for the topical nazis
00:00:50SevsIt's some JVC connector that I didn't see in the list
00:00:51DementioSevs, just leave your ipod "locked" so that it will boot in apple mode when in the car
00:01:07*petur steps a bit closer to logbot and grins
00:01:08gevaertsSevs: try the build from
00:01:13Lloreanlol3izer: We have channel guidelines. If you don't agree with them, you're welcome to not use the channel.
00:01:25lol3izerLlorean, it was only a mild jibe
00:02:02Lloreanpetur: I'd say go for it. Now's the time, after release, for things that could use wider testing anyway.
00:02:58gevaertsBagder: do you know the current status of the plugin voice/translation work?
00:03:31Bagdergevaerts: I haven't heard from him in a while, so I'm not up-to-date on it
00:03:31SevsSo I can try the regular Rockbox build and then add that patch and see if it can communicate?
00:04:10DementioSevs, i don't even use the patch, i just let my head unit boot my ipod. as long as it's locked, it boots into apple mode
00:04:10kugelgevaerts: you seem to have some time :)
00:04:22gevaertsSevs: The second link has a full rockbox build with the patch applied
00:04:58SevsI see, thanks
00:05:12pixelmapetur: I believe amiconn already told me something about that (when looking at the playback-doesn't-work-after-recording bug on the Ipods), I just don't remember details (hope to get his attention)
00:05:18Dementiowell, that is as long as your ipod is turned off when you plug it in
00:05:35 Quit meven ("good night")
00:05:36SevsRIght, and then just put on the "Hold" button
00:05:46lol3izeri hope the remote control patch hits mainline soon
00:06:02SevsI also didn't see anything specificaly about this in the PDF, but does adding Rockbox delete any files off of the iPod?
00:06:17SevsGreat, thanks
00:06:21lol3izerthe only thing it changes
00:06:27lol3izeris the bootloader
00:06:30SevsI see
00:06:47Dementioand you can always put the stock bootloader back on
00:07:16SevsAre there instructions for that in the PDF or with the Rockbox Utility?
00:07:22lol3izeryes it is 99.999999999999999% impossible for rockbox to damage your ipod
00:07:32lol3izerunless of course some freak bug causes it to explode >_>
00:08:15SevsRight, I have confidence it'll be fine :), I'm just more worried about how it'll work the 99% I use it in the car
00:08:30 Nick Dementio is now known as Dementio_work (n=dementio@
00:08:33lol3izeronly one way to find out
00:08:40BigBambiSevs: Just dual boot if needs be
00:09:14SevsYeah, that looks like the answer
00:09:20SevsThanks for the help guys

00:28:32kugelwhat's the difference between 7za and 7zr?
00:28:59kugelI use 7zr to archive something in a 7z archive, but "make 7zip" requires 7za
00:29:10amiconnIt must be used whenever the sample frequency changes, and it only actually does something on UDA1380
00:29:25amiconnSo why isn't it just part of the sampe rate setting function?

02:56:31kugelsoap: Why not believe him when he tells it's a mini?
02:56:43soapok, I just asked to be sure you were not confusing a late-model Nano with a Mini. Many people seem to confuse the terms.
02:56:59Lloreankugel: More often than not, people asking for help have got their iPod models wrong
02:57:07soapLooks like you have this well under control, kugel, I'll leave you to it.
02:57:09kugelI see
02:57:15DerPapst"Canada failed to start shallow plowing procedures" interesting indeed ;)
02:57:51kugelDerPapst: Apparently google isn't even wrong. I assume the first one was a typo by webguest66
02:58:44kugelsoap: Don't get me wrong. But it sounded like he was pretty sure. Not like "I believe it's a ipod mini"
02:59:56soapThe most common cause of bootloader installation failure is attempting to install a bootloader on a non-supported iPod. And can we cut out the meta-conversation on google's translation?

03:30:53*kugel wonders how the font rotation works in the wvs
03:34:50 Join beta2k_ [0] (
03:35:35Lloreankugel: Do you mean "in mpegplayer"?
03:36:59LloreanBecause "wvs" is not a term we use anywhere in documentation or source, and it'd be helpful to general understanding if you don't just make up random acronyms, especially considering the channel guidelines.
03:37:39LloreanMy guess would be that mpegplayer just uses some pre-rotated images.
03:37:49kugelLlorean: It's used in the source...
03:38:08kugel"struct wvs"
03:38:23LloreanSo were you asking about that struct?
03:38:34kugelit just shows the term is used
03:38:41LloreanNo, it shows it's a name of an object.
03:38:59LloreanMy name's Llorean. It's in the source archive, in CREDITS. It doesn't mean my name is also a term for anything.
03:39:45*DerPapst wonders if kugel needs to sleep too :P
03:39:51kugelSo, I shouldn't call it wvs even if the according struct is called wvs?
03:40:02LloreanYou can call the struct "the wvs struct" all you want.
03:40:29 Join Darksair [0] (n=user@
03:40:50LloreanBut "wvs" is not a term used in this channel by anyone really, and is likely to cause confusion for anyone not familiar with your own personal choice of what to call it.
03:41:29LloreanI'm almost positive I've told you this before, too.
03:42:04kugelWell, back then I didn't know it's actually used in the source
03:42:23LloreanSo you decided "I now know it's in the source, Llorean asked me not to use the term here but I'll ignore him"?
03:42:27kugelNow I'm convinced it's not a random acronym
03:42:43LloreanIt's the name of a single variable. Use it when referring to that variable, please, and not as a general acronym.
03:42:50kugelYes, since you told me it's not in the source
03:43:21LloreanThe source calls it "the wvs" when referring to the screen?
03:43:49LloreanThere's many variables about the video screen, but "wvs" is just going to confuse 95% of users in here.
03:43:57LloreanIs there something _wrong_ with trying to make sure people understand what you're saying?
03:44:00kugelOh, and I've just noticed it's mentioned in the documentation too
03:44:09LloreanWhat documentation is this?
03:44:27 Quit massiveH ("Leaving")
03:45:39kugelThe fact that you're not used to it doesn't make it random
03:46:03LloreanThe manual is the documentation. The wiki is supplementary material.
03:46:12LloreanPlease, just don't use the term. Seriously
03:46:17LloreanMost people will have no idea what you mean by it.
03:46:22LloreanIt's against the channel guidelines.
03:46:45LloreanArgue about it as you like, but the whole point of the channel guidelines is to increase understandability.
03:46:56kugelSo, how can I make it to a valid abbreviation?
03:47:07LloreanMaking up acronyms, or choosing to use variable names from the source that the vast majority won't be familiar with juts because you're too lazy to type out a half dozen more characters, is not the way to go.

03:48:23LloreanIt's not described in the manual.
03:48:30LloreanER, no .wvs file
03:48:43kugelThat doesn't make sense to me
03:48:46LloreanIt's not called it anywhere user-visible in the program.
03:48:56LloreanIt doesn't make sense to call it something people will understand?
03:49:00LloreanSeriously, how daft are you?
03:49:02kugelStill we can used it freely here
03:49:19LloreanUse WPS freely, sure. It's covered in the manual, in the program itself. Users are expected to know it.
03:50:29rasherkugel: Basically, no one uses the term wvs, so you shouldn't either.

03:51:26LloreanUse the accepted terms of the project such as those in the manual. Don't make up terms for screens.
03:51:42LloreanThe source has a bunch of variables named WVS_this and WVS_that, but the screen is still just the mpegplayer playback screen.
03:51:47LloreanBecause that's what _everyone_ knows it as.

03:57:07XavierGrLlorean: sure no problem, I am just pointing it out. I don't use it myself
03:57:15LloreanReally if we're going to complain at people for saying "thx", we need to make sure we use terms that we have documented clearly if at all possible.
03:57:29LloreanWe can't enforce such guidelines unilaterally without being hypocrites.
03:57:39LloreanIf the sake is for people to understand, that is.
03:57:46kugelXavierGr: That's the reason I know the abbreviation, it's beed used before

03:59:27kugelIt's sad for contributors to hear something like "how daft are you", did you even notice that you hit me there?
03:59:40LloreanYes. And I meant it.
03:59:48LloreanThe reasoning for the guidelines is clear, and you seem not to care.
03:59:58LloreanYou're arguing over technicalities when it's the reasoning that is the important bit.

04:07:43lol3izerhello one
04:07:57webguest80I have already install the rockbox, but set the language to chinese
04:08:18webguest80display is the messy code
04:08:19lol3izerits simple... we kill the rockbox
04:09:25webguest80how to do?

04:14:35balrogLlorean: *smacks forehead* cant believe i didnt think about that...
04:14:57LloreanThe bootloader installation requires privileges that aren't always by default allowed for USB devices.

04:16:45LloreanNo problem
04:16:59webguest80I want the language display chinese, because I am a chinese, but after to setup, the display is messy code
04:17:21Lloreanwebguest80: You may need to pick a different font. Not all fonts have chinese characters.

04:17:40webguest80ok, I try it

04:51:28LloreaniPods aren't particularly fast.
04:51:53LloreanAnd emulation requires a significant amount of CPU power compared to native games. They really aren't suited for it.
04:54:06webguest00how does the e200 stack up?
04:54:16LloreanSame processor.
04:54:21LloreanSmaller screen, so a little less overhead in general
04:55:15LloreanPortalPlayer is a brand, kinda like AMD or Intel
04:55:43LloreanIt just so happens that all of our players with PortalPlayer brand chips use the same family of chips, and most of them are the same speed (a few are slightly faster, but we still use them at the same speed)
04:55:51webguest00sorry couldn't remember the model
04:58:32LloreanFor the Sansa e200, I believe that's correct.
04:59:11webguest00and the e200 V2 uses the Austria Micro Systems AS3525
04:59:46webguest00seen the new Nano? quite thin
05:01:41webguest00Llorean: what's your primary involvement in the rockbox community ?
05:02:06LloreanI think the general consensus would be "that annoying guy who keeps reminding people about the rules."
05:02:29LloreanBut I've done a few patches, some work on the manual, run the forums ,etc. It varies.

05:26:54LloreanIt wasn't originally, but it's a conscious decision to keep it that way.
05:27:14wpyhHm... ok, so I figured the patch might not be accepted
05:27:20wpyhI was thinking of a more generic name
05:27:38wpyhsadly, "sim" was taken, "rockbox-sim" is too long... how about "stage"?

08:14:50Janet09Ok so I extracted the files and then unpluged and there was no difference...did I do something wrong?
08:15:23jygfor the automated version?
08:15:34jygyou run the installer, you tell it where your sansa is mounted
08:15:41jygand it does everything for you
08:15:43advcomp2019Janet09, you need to install the bootloader it sounds like but the rockbox utility should have did that
08:16:02jygright, you have to install the bootloader and the rockbox os itself
08:16:21Janet09Ok...Um this is way above my head I think...
08:16:34jygjanet, in the PDF docs there are screen-by-screen instructions for the auto installer
08:17:01jygerr sorry
08:17:08jygtry ehre:

09:00:39B4gderbtw, it seems we're slowly going back to business as usual on the site
09:00:39LloreanI think 3.1 should actually be a "features" release, since we've got a lot of patches on the backburner that could use integration, then 3.2 can have a focus on playback stability, as in try to hold back on feature commits even outside the freeze if they're likely to have a significant effect on stability
09:00:47B4gderyday was just twice the normal amount of visitors
09:01:31B4gder"just" some 15GB downloaded
09:01:42B4gderwithout even counting release downloads
09:02:04amiconnImho stability is significantly more important than features
09:02:16LloreanStability is about "moderate" right now.
09:02:50LloreanIf we focused on stability, we could probably get it to a fairly decent level, but people would complain about the patches on the backburner. 3.1 would be relatively stable, then we'd bring in the patches, and 3.2 would have no choice but to probably be less stable.
09:02:53amiconnAfaik it's still pssoible to confuse buffering (although I didn't observe this), and it's also possible to crash metadata readers and codecs with "bad" tracks
09:03:27amiconnAnd then there are the dozens of UI glitches introduced by viewports which need fixing

09:09:22GodEaterthat would merely answer it - it doesn't answer my question of "why do people ask it in the first place?" :)
09:09:27LloreanI guess we all kinda thought it was obvious enough that "we don't say where it needs to be, because there is no specific place" that we never assumed people would ask. I mean, I'll admit it catches me by surprise ever time that's someone's question.
09:09:57LloreanI can only assume that since many OFs require a special syncing program, or expect to find music in a certain place, that people assume there's a good reason it's done that way?
09:10:19 Quit DerDome ("Leaving.")
09:10:35GodEaterI guess my early dap choices which all did file browsing have left me thoroughly onconcerned over where I put my music
09:10:57LloreanYeah, I'd be irritated if I got a DAP and it dictated directory structure.
09:11:11 Join fyrestorm [0] (
09:11:26GodEaterwhich to some extent, the sansa's do, with their silly "I'm going to hide the music folder" approach
09:11:37B4gderit seems most OFs do have such "music" directories
09:11:53B4gdersansa, meizu, cowon all do afair
09:12:27amiconnArchos, and iriver don't
09:12:47LloreanDon't the Sansas still index songs outside of the MUSIC folder?

09:13:07LloreanI mean, it's even hidden when you access in MSC mode so you "can't" put songs there.
09:13:13LloreanIt's just a place it hides the MTP file structure?
09:13:27GodEaterLlorean: I've no idea, what I meant was that the OF's habit of hiding that folder means I *don't* put my music there, so I don't have to mess with the Rockbox "show files" setting
09:13:51 Join funman [0] (
09:13:54GodEaterwhich means the OF is dictating where I put my music to some degree
09:14:09LloreanI like having a /music folder with everything beneath
09:14:09amiconnB4gder: Sure. That rises the question why newer DAPs are a step back compared to those...
09:14:15LloreanOn my e200 I have a /audio folder instead.

09:16:58B4gderwhat, you're saying that storage is not growing?
09:17:02*amiconn doesn't understand why 8GB is the max for most of them when 32GB CF (and now even higher capacities) are available already
09:17:11LloreanB4gder: Well, the *average* storage capacity probably isn't.
09:17:23B4gdertrue, since there's this trend towards flash
09:17:25GodEaterI still remember my first 64MB player
09:17:40GodEaterand that was with a 32MB smartmedia card in it
09:17:49GodEaterI could *just* get two albums on it

09:21:04amiconnNothing would stop them offering the lower capacities as well.
09:21:28LloreanThere's probably an assumption that there's not a large enough market for them right now to warrant producing them though.
09:21:28GodEaterthe higher capacity ones would never get bought, except in very small "not cost effective" volumes
09:21:38LloreanI mean, if they thought there was enough profit in it, I'm sure they'd do it.
09:22:09GodEaterme too
09:22:16GodEaterand I'm assuming they do market research
09:22:25GodEaterso I'm guessing that research says "nope"
09:23:32LloreanThough they could just sell a flash based one that comes with a 4/6/8GB CF card that's removable.
09:24:08GodEateragain though, I suspect people wouldn't buy them as much
09:25:25LloreanI imagine internal/permanent memory generally seems better to the consumer. Nothing to lose, pop out, or break.

11:19:32linuxstbBut I'll remove it now...
11:20:40funmanlinuxstb: we may be able to do it by changing some occurences (not all) of the firmware size in the code, but we need to test that on recoverable e200
11:22:09funmanthere is 7 occurences of the exact firmware size in the file: 2 in the file header (which mkamsboot changes), 2 in the code (used as a lower stack limit), and 3 in data segments without cross references
11:23:01funmanso maybe changing the last 3 references will work, we must not touch the 2 first because stack would begin in a code segment (we suppose)

17:27:43*amiconn wonders how kugel will make it fade at brightness 1...
17:27:58peturkugel, amiconn: I assume that if you keep the time between steps short enough you won't notice those steps too much. But that means 5 steps are cycled pretty quickly so not too much effect...
17:30:21kugelpetur: the time between steps is HZ/25
17:30:58peturseeing is believing, I guess...
17:31:13amiconnThe time cannot be fixed, as the (a) the fade-in/fade-out times are variable, (b) they depend on the current brightness
17:31:23wpyhI wonder if one could alternate the backlight brightnesses (i.e. quickly switch between brightness levels) to simulate a fade-out or fade-in
17:32:02amiconnwpyh: We do this on targets where backlight is controlled via gpio. On targets where backlight is controlled via i2c, this is impossible

17:33:15 Join fragilematter [0] (n=barbu_do@
17:33:18amiconnIt would mean doing i2c from an isr. On some targets this would break the i2c driver. On others it would even work, but the isr would drain a lot of cpu (i2c isn't the fastest thing...)

18:16:25n1swpyh: how should you make rockbox display no backdrop without creating a whole new theme?
18:16:37wpyhOn the other hand, we can replace it with a submenu called "Backdrop", which contains a few entries: 1) Solid Colour, 2) Gradient, 3) Bitmap. And then we can use it to select the type and colour of the backdrop

19:18:37domonokyamiconn: ah, correct....
19:19:18kronfluxLambdaCalculus37: well I would assume you've already looked at this, possibly taken notes already? so if thats true, perhaps we should collaborate on what you've gathered so far.

19:19:40starnobleOk on Windows I am using Sapi5, using the Realspeak Solo voices. The Jill voice.
19:19:40domonokystarnoble: we always have the problem, that we dont get enough exact feedback from blinduser for the installer (it doesnt work, is not enough. we need specifics)...

19:20:56domonokystarnoble: i would make a first try with a default sapi voice, generating a english voice file. So we know if it works in your vm...
19:21:21starnobleOk what would you like more information on so I can be of more help?
19:22:23kugelhow long does the beast need to charge? :S
19:22:39starnobleok what do I need to do to test
19:23:01LambdaCalculus37kugel: It's done.
19:23:25starnobleI have the build directory created
19:23:32LambdaCalculus37kronflux: I have some notes at home.
19:23:46kugelLambdaCalculus37: nice alert :) So, how's fading?
19:23:53blkhawkstarnoble: would a python script that triggers the windows sapi help you?
19:23:57kronfluxLambdaCalculus37: ah. I assume you're at work or something? :P
19:24:10LambdaCalculus37kronflux: Yes.
19:24:11domonokystarnoble: it would be very nice, if you could tell us exactly which parts of rbutil are not spoken, ie which buttons are not voiced when tabbing, which window doest tell its caption. (could perhaps need sighted help, so you can identify the silent things). But it would be very nice if we can get some feedback on this into the tracker. Then we can improve it
19:24:17LambdaCalculus37kugel: No fading.
19:24:33blkhawki made one for a SecondLife project once
19:24:47starnoblehmm I'll try anything
19:25:03kugelLambdaCalculus37: not at all? n1s said it'd be only fading out, while amiconn said it'd be only fading up
19:25:27blkhawkwould only help if you have done any programming tho - it plugs into a mysql database of erm vietnam verteran names
19:25:29LambdaCalculus37kugel: Just to make sure...
19:25:34*LambdaCalculus37 looks at it again.
19:25:37domonokystarnoble: back to your cygwin problems: you created a build dir, run "../tools/configure" with selecting voice and the "make voice" ?
19:25:53starnobleyes that is correct
19:25:54LambdaCalculus37kugel: It fades in, but doesn't fade out.
19:26:02*blkhawk takes a look at the build enviroment

19:26:26domonokystarnoble: and can you give as the exact error (paste it to
19:26:52kugelLambdaCalculus37: Hm ok. Then I need to edit a bit. I'm back in a few minutes (prepare to build a test built :P )
19:26:52domonokyblkhawk: the buildsystem already can use sapi, via a vbs script.. :-)
19:27:44blkhawkso why not erm - bundle up a care packge for mr noble here
19:28:03*amiconn curses crappy
19:30:06amiconnFirst, it doesn't stop when one of the sub-tasks (configure binutils, make bintuils, install binutils, plus the equivalents for gcc) fails
19:30:06starnoblehow can I have it log the output of make voice to a file?
19:30:10domonokyblkhawk: what do you mean with care package ? as far as i know he already has a buildsystem in a vm, he just gets some errors while creating the voice.
19:30:35amiconnSecond, it deletes the build-dir even if there were errors, making analysis hard
19:30:50domonokystarnoble: make voice 1&2> errors.txt ?
19:31:17amiconnThird, it unpacks everything at the beginning and only cleans up at the end of each toolchain build, needing a lot of additional temporary diskpace
19:31:38amiconnmcuelenaere: there?
19:31:42blkhawkdomonoky: you help him debug it :) its better to have stuff working anyway
19:31:47mcuelenaereamiconn: yes
19:31:50blkhawkbut if its just a few megs....
19:32:14amiconnmcuelenaere: I'm trying to make Interix usable for rockbox development, as it's significantly faster than cygwin
19:32:37amiconnBuilding the mipsel toolchain needs an additional configure switch for the binutils: −−disable-werror
19:32:57amiconnDo you think it will hurt to set this for all host platforms, or shall I make it Interix-only?
19:33:29mcuelenaerehmm I'm not really familiar with the binutils configure options
19:33:29mcuelenaereprobably it'll be better if you make it Interix-only if possible
19:33:47amiconn−−disable-werror is new to 2.17, and it disables the -Werror switch when building bfd
19:33:58amiconnThis switch in turn makes gcc treat all warnings as errors
19:34:45amiconnSince building on interix throws a lot of warnings regarding object alignment, binutils won't build when that swiitch is in effect, so it needs to be disabled
19:36:40*amiconn would also be interested in a test whether mips code produced by that toolchain will actually run, if that can be done safely
19:36:42mcuelenaerein that case I guess it doesn't hurt too much when only enabled on Interix
19:37:07amiconnI can test the other toolchains myself, but not mips
19:37:08mcuelenaeretry comparing the output of a MIPS target between an Interix build and a Linux build?
19:37:17mcuelenaerewhy not MIPS?
19:37:24amiconnI have no mips target
19:37:37mcuelenaereah you mean trying the code *on* the target?

20:15:36kugelLlorean: Ok, thanks. Judging from the database files created it doesn't look like as well
20:15:49domonokyto have all the files and folders spoken, you need to generate talkfiles (which is another seperate step).

20:17:38Lloreankugel: In some limited ways, I'm sure it could be managed. Since the database can handle "string contains" comparisons, it might be able to be modified to show multiple artist strings in the same category as any of their substrings, as well as their own category.

20:46:30kugelHillshum: there's a good chance you render your player useless with the tools you're about to use. I recommend gaining the skills by doing something less risky.
20:46:44nossracerthe theme works but not the wps and thats what i want more than anything
20:47:00Lloreannossracer: Then the themes are broken.
20:47:04kugelHowever, I won't stop you, and any help is welcome. Also, the e200v2 in particular seems to be recoverable

20:49:04LambdaCalculus37This one, for example:
20:49:06nossraceron my wps all i get is the name of the song the elapsed time and thats it
20:49:22LambdaCalculus37Then you're probably not extracting the WPS properly.
20:49:44nossracerokay then
20:49:56nossracercan you inform me of the correct way?
20:50:10nossraceri cant find it nowhere
20:50:12Hillshumcheck the wilki/manual
20:51:55Lloreannossracer: Have some patience.
20:52:10LloreanPeople are also doing other things, and not all of your questions will be answered instantly.
20:52:14kugelnossracer: it depends on what you find in the theme package. If it's a .rockbox folder, unzip it onto the root of the player and merge it with the existing .rockbox folder. If's more than 1 folder then unzip it into the .rockbox folder on your device
20:52:19 Part notriddle ("Leaving")
