#rockbox log for 2008-10-20

00:01:20MelaGoso i'm able to run the complete tutorial to get it to FAT32. But when I try to install after that using the program, i get the RW-error...When i replug the ipod, itunes gives a message to restore it, which is good i guess, since it is in fat32-structure. However, even after this replug and the shutting down of itunes, i get the same RW-error
00:01:49linuxstbGoing back a step, after you converted it to fat32, does the ipod work as normal? i.e. does the apple firmware still work?
00:02:11MelaGono, when i unplug it
00:02:16MelaGoit says to connect it to a pc
00:02:25MelaGoand then gives me the instruction to restore it, which i ofcourse don't do
00:03:05linuxstbThat's the first problem you have to solve
00:03:34linuxstbAre you sure it's a "5g", and not the "5.5g" ?

00:31:51linuxstbDo you remove the ipod between the those two steps?
00:32:06MelaGoI tried it once
00:32:11MelaGogave the same thing
00:32:14MelaGoshould i remove it?
00:33:06linuxstbI can't remember - it seems other people have changed those instructions since I first wrote them.
00:33:59MelaGoalright, so now when i go to disk utility
00:34:12linuxstbNo, it doesn't seem to be required to remove and reattach.
00:34:19MelaGoi got my ipod with the name "disk2s2" still on deactivated mode
00:34:31MelaGostructure is: MS-DOS (FAT32)
00:34:47MelaGonow, in order to install rockbox with the program, I have to activate it
00:35:18linuxstbI've no idea what that means - I never had to do anything else.
00:35:36linuxstbIf you now eject your ipod, does the Apple firmware work (do nothing else after the newfs_msdos command)
00:35:39MelaGowell, when I'd go to rockbox utilty now, it wouldn't find the ipod
00:35:43MelaGosince it's deactivated...
00:35:56MelaGoit gives me an error...So I have to activate to get the program to locate it
00:36:08MelaGosec, i'll eject
00:36:20MelaGohaven't run rockbox yet btw
00:36:43linuxstbYes, I know - you need to confirm you have a working winpod first.
00:36:49MelaGowhen i eject, it reboots and
00:36:55MelaGoYES, it works on apple firmware
00:37:16MelaGowhen connecting it to itunes, it asks me to name it and all that...
00:37:45MelaGowow, and it got a windows structure too
00:37:48MelaGofirst time i see this
00:37:51MelaGoalright, so what's next?
00:38:26MelaGonow i have to run rockbox utility right?
00:38:28linuxstbSimply run rockbox utility - it should work now.

01:01:24linuxstbMunkie: All plugins are included with Rockbox. is failing for me in 64bit ubuntu, any ideas?
01:01:46pixelmaMelaGo: no, bootloader is already installed now (that's the one that put "Can't load..." on the screen). You should be able to just install the Rockbox build from the "Installation" tab in the utility (second option)
01:01:48Munkiei want to get the Gameboy emulator. it is not included

01:04:01Munkieoh and is sound supported in doom?
01:04:32linuxstbThere are sound effects, but no background music.

01:45:48linuxstbAnd "they are" in the next sentence.
01:46:35linuxstbIs it possible to detect Archos fw versions? Maybe with a crc?

01:49:42amiconnDoesn't look like it
01:49:47saratogais there a "no plugins" make option ? It'd be nice to not have to wait for them to build and then copy over
01:50:14amiconnWell, a crc might work, but then the rockbox binary would need to know these "bad" CRCs

01:51:45saratogaok thanks
01:52:06saratogafaad only mallocs 36KB for me on a 3 minute AAC-LC file
01:52:27amiconnlinuxstb: If rockbox wouldn't have grown so big, we could have used the size. The flash-update archos firmwares are significantly larger than the normal on-disk firmware files. But rockbox is now closer in size to the bad ones...
01:52:27linuxstbfaad or the mp4 parser?
01:52:32JdGordonlinuxstb: any idea how much of that e200v2 code works? does it build a working bin at all?
01:53:13linuxstbJdGordon: It compiles.. But it's still very incomplete - someone (maybe me...) needs to finish reading an OF disassembly and implementing the funcitons.
01:53:37amiconnThe CRC method may be an idea for the RoLo rework
01:53:40*amiconn sighs
01:53:53saratogalinuxstb: 36KB is as large as the mem_ptr in the malloc buffer gets
01:54:24saratogai just edited the malloc,calloc,realloc functions to print the mem_ptr whenever they're called and started playing files
01:55:46 Join [i][B][e][n] [0] (n=Bensawso@unaffiliated/bensawsome)
01:56:13linuxstbI wouldn't call 36KB "only" - it should grow linearly with the size of the mp4 file. So a 30-minute file would be 360KB, and a 2-hour file would be trouble...
01:58:29saratogai still don't understand why such large seek tables are needed for MP4
01:59:04saratogai started looking through the mp4 specs, but the format is surprisingly complicated
02:00:29linuxstbYou're surprised an MPEG standard is complex? ;)
02:01:43amiconnlinuxstb: I've now committed the reworked flashing chapter. Thanks for checking!
02:01:54linuxstbYou're welcome.
02:02:00JdGordonare these mallocs used for the life of the track?
02:02:34*amiconn will commit it (with an extra remark regarding the 8MB mod) to the 3.0 branch tomorrow, for building the 3.0.1 manuals
02:03:03linuxstbJdGordon: Yes, I'm pretty sure they all will be.
02:03:08saratogaJdGordon: most of them are seek tables which could be needed whenever someone seeks, the rest are maybe 16KB or so of internal decoder buffers
02:03:47saratogadoes ogg not malloc?
02:04:50JdGordonif the seektables arnt available it can stll seek? it just has to do alot of extra work?
02:05:26saratogaah Ogg duplicates the codeclib malloc functions
02:05:34saratogahow handy

02:13:29linuxstbamiconn: Today's commit was a synced version of a patch by tomal
02:13:52amiconnI doubt he increased the codec buffer to 1MB though
02:14:14linuxstbNo, but the point is that it's now a unified buffer - that's what tomal wanted.
02:14:49amiconnYes, but 1MB would be too big for the iFP, the same way as 512KB codec buffer + 512KB malloc buffer are too big
02:15:09linuxstbYes, but I'm sure it's not 1MB there
02:16:00linuxstbPrior to today's commit, the codec malloc function only used the 512KB malloc buffer - as far as I could see, the unused part of the codec buffer was never used.
02:16:47linuxstbTomal's patch means that malloc uses the codec buffer - which we increased (for now) to 1MB on the large-mem targets, and got rid of the malloc buffer.

02:25:12linuxstbsaratoga: IIRC, the information about the duration and sizes of frames is stored in the STTS chunk. Looking at the ALAC codec (alac.c), the decode_frame() function doesn't return a "bytes_consumed" value - that's taken from the STTS chunk. AAC also uses the STTS chunk values when decoding frames.
02:25:20linuxstbSo there are two issues - 1) Can the decoding happen without the info in the STTS chunk; 2) How do we seek without it?

05:40:18XavierGrJdGordon: ping
05:50:02XavierGrJust updated the scroll padding patch
05:50:12XavierGrwow I feel stupid that I didn't think of prefix/suffix
05:50:44 Quit Horscht ("User was distributing pornography on server; system seized by FBI")
05:50:53XavierGrafter hours fighting to handle properly quotes and strings the solution was much more simple
05:51:44JdGordonhehe, sorry i didnt tihnk of it sooner also :p
05:52:15XavierGralso about the length of the padding. 10-20 can be quite small for large screens with small fonts
05:52:26XavierGrthat's why I ended up on LCD_WIDTH / 4
05:53:01XavierGralso it muches the logic of scroll_engine.h (before the patch)
05:53:02JdGordonyeah, but if they are all spaces then its very obvious where the line ends anyway
05:53:18XavierGrmuches = matches
05:54:20XavierGrSCROLL_LINE_SIZE is defined by LCD_WIDTH even if the array holds characters and not pixels
05:54:36XavierGrby the way why is this array so big, I didn't have to change it and the padding still fits
05:57:56XavierGrmy logic is that on a huge screen (say ipod 5.5) LCD_WIDTH / 4 is 60 characters, which on all fonts will cover the extreme preferrence of one whole screen of padding.
05:58:31XavierGrof course hardcoding to 60 characters won't make sense for ondio which will need quite fewer characters to fill in the screen
05:58:47JdGordonwhich array is that?
05:59:14XavierGrin scroll_engine.h scroll_info.line
05:59:41JdGordonthats not the array to hold the full text of the line being scrolled is it?
06:00:42XavierGryes that's it
06:01:05XavierGrthat array is then put on the screen with a different offset (scrolling mechanism)
06:01:07JdGordonthen it needs to be at least MAX_PATH long
06:01:39XavierGryeah and it needs another half screen for the next append of the string
06:01:40JdGordonoh, or it is the subpart of the string being displayed?
06:01:53XavierGrthe part I don't get is the 3*LCD_WIDTH/2
06:01:58XavierGrand without the /2 for the player
06:02:09*JdGordon doesnt know this code much
06:02:10XavierGrJdGordon: AFAIU is the whole string
06:02:24 Quit Seed ("cu, Andre")
06:02:31JdGordon... im also in windows atm so dont even have the code here
06:02:34JdGordonlemme reboot....

06:05:25XavierGrthe scrolling mechanism takes that string and types it to the screen with an offset (and that is how scrolling is achieved)
06:06:21XavierGrJdGordon: so it is the full string plus half of the screen which some part of the string is reappended to make scrolling look normal
06:06:36*JdGordon wonders if scrolling could be redone with viewports so we could use a pixel spacing between start and end
06:11:38ameyerspeaking of :
06:11:49ameyerdarn keyboard
06:14:25XavierGrJdGordon: the first version of the patch pads spaces calculated from pixels/font width
06:14:49XavierGrbut then some people said that the best would be for the user to select its own padding string
06:15:08JdGordonyeah, I sort of followed the discussoin
06:15:28 Join HellDragon [0] (
06:16:18XavierGrso what do you think, is it commitable? Any more comments?
06:18:23JdGordon... by overkill I meant that its wasting too much space... imo adding any more than half a dozen spaces doesnt make it any *more* readable... so having such a high limit is a waste
06:19:32XavierGrWell, I for one, like at least half the screen with spaces. So I took as base the extreme of one screen (beyond that it isn't visible)
06:19:35JdGordonbut apart from that it looks ok
06:22:14XavierGrokay then if you think it is good to go and you are comfortable with commiting it I would be glad. Right now though I have to go to sleep. Thanks for the tip again. :)

11:11:21B4gderwith _some_ targets getting a 3.0.1 the download/release page gets a bit tricky
11:11:29B4gderI mean, how to write on it to describe the situation
11:12:44Zagordo we even have to?
11:13:05 Quit culture (Connection timed out)
11:13:26B4gderI think so, since the users who experienced problems with 3.0 might want to know that it is now 3.0.1
11:14:56linuxstbProbably too late to suggest this, but couldn't we just bump every target to 3.0.1 and have a changelog showing what changed - i.e. that it is only different to 3.0 for certain devices.
11:15:20B4gderwe can still do that, if that's what we really want
11:15:28Zagor"UPDATE: An update, version 3.0.1, has been released to fix problems with xxx and yy on targets zzz and nnn."
11:15:43Zagoruh double update looks a bit silly, but you get the idea
11:16:04scorchei would rather have that than "why havent you guys released 3.0.1 for my ipod yet? I dont want to be behind!"
11:16:08GodEaterI think that's the best plan
11:16:34Zagorscorche: well the other side of that coin is "what is the difference between 3.0 and 3.0.1?"
11:16:53linuxstbZagor: The answer is a link to the changelog
11:16:54scorcheZagor: and the changelog or notice should take care of that
11:16:59Zagoror worse: "3.0.1 sounds much worse than 3.0 on my ipod. can I have 3.0 back please?"

11:24:51pixelmaboth sound like a BoS anyways...
11:29:30B4gdersome people also obviously believe in secret development somewhere not publicly visible...
11:31:23LloreanB4gder: As can be seen by how many people thought 3.0, the first time, was gonna have a bunch of new features.
11:31:57B4gderI guess I just never really learn to expect this
11:37:43LloreanWell, I think part of it is that people expect it to be similar to some other softwares (take GCC) where you have the 3.x and the 4.x branches.
11:38:06LloreanSo when we did Rockbox 3.0 they expected all the previous versions had been on the 2.5 branch, and maybe they just didn't know where to get 3.x test builds.
11:38:45linuxstbLots of projects do that though - have a "new features" branch.
11:39:24linuxstbMaybe we should call "trunk" the "3.1" branch to make it clearer.

11:58:31balou_btw, I'm not in the us
11:58:32linuxstbbalou_: There are many better devices for Rockbox than the ipod video
11:59:18balou_what would you suggest? perhaps?
11:59:36linuxstbIf you want a hard-disk player, then the Gigabeat F is very good value.
12:01:11balou_B4gder, good link :)
12:01:40*Zagor removes the "available" column
12:02:27balou_It's a pity... I think there _would_ be a market for dap with flac support and for example digital output
12:02:50markunI just update unifont: "As of 20 June 2008 (by coincidence the Summer Solstice), the GNU Unifont has a glyph for every printable code point in the Unicode Basic Multilingual Plane (BMP)"
12:02:51balou_it just seems that no manufacturer got that yet...
12:03:36markunbalou_: the iriver h1xx has digital out
12:04:53markunand with rockbox it plays back flac of course
12:05:08balou_I know, but that player has been out of production for a few years now
12:05:38linuxstbThat shouldn't stop you buying it if it has the features you want.
12:07:10markunbalou_: and if you want to do some DIY work you could probably make a digital-out for the Gigabeat F dock connector :) (it has the I2S signal)
12:08:17balou_sure, but I'd still like a brand new digital-out sporting rockbox-by-default hires display player more than an old player bought off ebay
12:08:58GodEatersadly no such thing exists - so you have to compromise
12:10:18balou_...or petition a big dap manufacturer
12:10:36scorchepetitions dont work

12:21:10M0rtushello all
12:21:12amiconnSure it had more glyphs than our version... but only ones which you'll never get to see for any valid unicode text. I took 20080820 and stripped those, using a perl script
12:24:29M0rtusguys im a right in thinking that the USB does nothing on the sansa still?
12:24:48BigBambiIt should restart to the Sansa firmware
12:24:52BigBambiAnd then connect
12:26:09ameyeremphasis on "should"
12:26:33*ameyer glares at whatever build server is screwing up portalplayer builds
12:28:44M0rtuslast time i tried rockbox it did just that........... and then would go back to rockbox without a reinstall :(
12:29:04pixelmaameyer: what do you mean?
12:29:32BigBambiM0rtus: It should reboot to the Sansa firmware to let you copy files, then when you restart, start Rockbox like normal
12:30:21M0rtusmight give it another try............ last time it would restart to sansa f/w then copy files......... reboot and sansa firmware still.
12:30:37BigBambiThat shouldn't happen
12:31:01BigBambiAnother way is to boot to the Sansa firmware, then insert USB (manual tells you how to dual boot), or plug in USB from off
12:31:18pixelmathere's a bug with the automatic reboot though that appears in one build and vanishes in the next, but you can always get the OF for USB by either plugging from off state or start the OF manually
12:31:30ameyerI mean some official builds freeze on usb connect but I've never had a build I built myself that didn't restart to OF on usb connect
12:32:13BigBambiAnd you have verified that all the non-working ones come from the same build server?
12:32:37ameyerI'm not entirely sure how I'd do that
12:32:52BigBambiOn the build details page you can see which server built which build
12:32:59BigBambiOtherwise it is pure speculation
12:36:42markunamiconn: git really doesn't like these big file commits :(
12:39:35ameyerthe current mini2g build seems to have the issue
12:39:56ameyerassuming the ipod reboot failure is the same as the sansa reboot failure
12:40:11BigBambiOK, so note down which build server and then try the next few as well to see if it correlates
12:40:20linuxstbameyer: Can you compile that same mini2g build yourself, and test that?
12:40:30soapFront page still needs fixed to explicitly mention that Rockbox does not work on the 4th gen Nano.
12:40:30pixelmaI've experienced myself that using a downloaded build had the problem while compiling my own from the same revision did not. I didn't think it's a buildserver's fault, more like memory alignment or what's it called

12:45:46 Part M0rtus
12:46:10linuxstbIIUC, prior to that commit, the unused part of the main codec buffer remained unused.
12:48:36ameyeris it in any way possible the sansa charging patch could fix the mystery sansa usb reboot issue?
12:49:05ameyer(and adds a nasty 100% reproducible stkov)
12:49:28preglowlinuxstb: but the total amount, which is the same, still remaions unused...

12:49:40preglowwell, not unused

12:50:10ameyerbecause that could also explain why my builds always seem to work
12:50:29ameyererm, seem to always work
12:53:04linuxstbpreglow: I agree - but technically there is now no longer a malloc buffer, just the unused part of the codec buffer. So if we can reduce the amount of malloc'ing the guilty codecs do, we can easily reduce that buffer size.
12:53:31linuxstbi.e. this is just the first step to reducing the memory usage of codecs

13:04:04linuxstbpreglow: What are the problem codecs? IIUC, mp4 codecs have problems with the seektable info, and Tremor needs to allocate (and init) some large lookup tables, especially for floor0 files. Are there any others?
13:05:01*ameyer wonders how well flake -12 files would work on rockbox
13:05:50*scorche didnt know we had a codec for flake
13:05:52linuxstbameyer: The Rockbox flac decoder only supports the "flac subset" - I've no idea what "flake -12" produces. The main issue is the maximum frame size is something like 4608 samples.
13:06:11linuxstbscorche: It's a third-party flac encoder
13:06:32ameyermaximum frame size could be an issue
13:09:47preglowlinuxstb: vorbis is the major one, afaik
13:09:56preglowlinuxstb: and it's hard to work around, the codec has very few hard limits
13:10:07ameyerapparently at higher compression levels it uses 16k blocks, whatever that means.
13:10:16preglowbut of course, only way to handle it is to find the common limits used in encoders and hard code for that
13:10:52pregloweven the flac author himself says higher block sizes seldom matters
13:11:13linuxstbameyer: That's probably not going to work then - it increases the memory requirements for decoding, meaning those buffers could no longer be in the fast IRAM
13:11:26linuxstb(which is why Rockbox limits to the subset)
13:11:57ameyermakes sense
13:12:52preglowand i really don't think we should fix that
13:12:56linuxstbI can't recall anyone ever complaining either, which would seem to prove that non-subset files are very rare in reality.
13:13:07preglowcodec authors should be aware that there are limits, if they want portable playback
13:13:31preglows/codec authors/encoder authors/
13:14:27ameyerlinuxstb: and lossless/lossless transcoding isn't as big of a deal as lossy/lossy
13:14:39linuxstbameyer: Indeed.
13:15:11ameyerafaik, Trent Reznor is the only person who actually uses flake
13:15:43linuxstbIt could be interesting to port it to Rockbox - I'm sure it's far more understandable than libFLAC...
13:16:00linuxstbBut IIRC, it uses floating point...
13:16:53preglowwell, so does flac, for lpc afaik
13:17:04linuxstbHmm, variable block size encoding sounds interesting... (reading the flake hompage...)
13:18:14preglowsounds like a weird lossless encoder feature
13:18:40preglowhard to imagine why you would want to use shorter blocks, unless there is some kind of switchable mode
13:19:55preglowlinuxstb: i'll update the wiki with my malloc findings right now, some of it might be inaccurate (don't think it is, tho...), but it beats nothing
13:20:07crwlflake seems to use block size of 4608 in all of its presets (at least −−help of flake 0.11 indicates that)
13:20:24crwler, 4608 or lower
13:23:02preglowlinuxstb: didn't ape use to malloc a seek table?
13:24:41ameyererm, what I said about Trent Reznor apparently isn't true
13:26:48linuxstbpreglow: Ah yes, it does...
13:26:55ameyerI have 0.10 and flake claims to onlu use up to 4608
13:28:00preglowdoes? i couldn't find it :/
13:28:04linuxstbpreglow: I don't remember the details, but I expect that can be changed to a sensible sized static buffer, similar to FLAC. I'll investigate.
13:28:18linuxstbIt's in apps/codecs/demac/libdemac/
13:28:43preglowoh, there's another dir in there...
13:28:58preglowbtw, is it "malloc free" or "malloc-free"? as in free of mallocs
13:29:40linuxstbI meant to say it there is no use of malloc or free.
13:30:10ameyerpreglow: flake -h shows a table with equivalent command lines for -0 through -12
13:30:12preglowoh, i meant which of the two alternatives are correct english :P

14:00:47linuxstbYes, but that's always been in the separate malloc buffer.
14:01:17preglowoh yeah, just meant to say it isn't a good way to see what memory the codecs do need
14:02:06*linuxstb wonders how that info can be presented for the various architectures in a useful way...
14:02:25B4gderthere's a lot of numbers...
14:02:33linuxstbB4gder: Is const data included anywhere in those numbers?
14:02:57preglowargh, isn't using anchors just going like [[#AnchorName][link here] and then putting #AnchorName in the spot you want to link to?
14:03:08B4gderconst would be rodata won't it?
14:03:50preglowlinuxstb: each codec entry would probably just have a bunch of links to files that get updated per target per build?
14:04:13B4gderright, rodata is part of the Text size in that table I believe
14:04:14preglowonly way i can see it work and still be updated automatically
14:04:54linuxstbMaybe the whole page needs to be generated dynamically, and include some kind of figure (or textual description) for malloc usage (taken from a static file)
14:05:51amiconnlinuxstb: Do all malloc()s in question never free() before the codec exits?
14:06:14linuxstbI think the entire malloc buffer is reset after each track.
14:06:17preglowamiconn: we purge the malloc buffer after each track
14:06:19linuxstbi.e. there's no free()
14:06:23preglowso it doesn't matter
14:06:23amiconnIf there are some free() calls, it _might_ help to implement a proper free()
14:06:42amiconn...e.g. dbestfit or whatever that's called
14:06:50preglowit _might_ help to implement a proper "malloc" too, but let's just remove the mallocs instead shall we? :)
14:07:16*B4gder is on the remove-them train
14:07:34*linuxstb lives on no-malloc street
14:07:36amiconnThat would be much preferred. The question is whether it's possible without a major rewriet of the codecs in question.
14:08:25preglowi think it would be very possible
14:08:38preglowi do not believe the codecs to malloc/free on a per frame basis, it's all init/deinit
14:08:57preglowso we purely need to find the static limits that would work, for some codecs this is easy (aac), for some it is hard (vorbis)

14:16:21LambdaCalculus37We should have a wiki page for that information.

14:17:40LambdaCalculus37linuxstb: Are your results for iPods in general, or any specific iPod?
14:18:03linuxstbIt's the ipod color build. I don't know if the codecs make use of the extra iram on nano/video...
14:18:05*GodEater guesses for the photo
14:18:24*LambdaCalculus37 will get some results later on
14:18:31preglowi was about to ask about that, should we create them for all builds, or just find which targets share the same?
14:18:39preglowi guess the last would require maintainance, but be preferable
14:19:18linuxstbpreglow: Is there a reason speex uses very little IRAM? it looks like lots of code could go there (if it helps...)
14:19:52linuxstbAlso, it seems like the entire wavpack codec (code and bss) could fit in IRAM...
14:20:33B4gderin general iram usage seem somewhat low

14:24:57linuxstbIsn't that an emulator format though? Meaning it's probably the RAM of the target device?

16:30:15XavierGrand as I comment, 32 bytes is not something that large-screen targets miss.
16:34:20bluebrotherXavierGr: well, to have a "good" spacing, especially if you use something different than spaces, 5 would be enough IMO −− something like the "+++" winamp uses is the usual thing I could think about
16:34:55bluebrotherand for spaces, well ... if you have 5 user characters and add a space in front and after them you can get to up to 7 spaces. Shouldn't that be enough?
16:36:04XavierGrbluebrother: but thats why this became an issue. Some need a larger padding string.
16:36:39XavierGrI am ok for a fixed value as long it is big to please all, but then small screens will just waste memory
16:36:54bluebrotherone could argue about 7 user defineable characters. But everything else is quite special-case IMO. And we can't care for every special case like people wanting the complete line as padding
16:37:40bluebrotherIMO the number of characters doesn't make much of a difference for the screen size −− on small screens you usually will use a much smaller font, so the number of characters isn't too different
16:38:33bluebrotherpeople repeatedly complained about rockfont on larger screens, so anyone using small fonts on a large screen can be considered a special case. IMHO :)
16:38:58XavierGrof course that's why I am still arguing about it, array[30] from array[LCD_WIDTH / 4] is not more complex but still you get something more for only some bytes

16:39:58bluebrotherwell, I don't see a point why larger screens should require more *characters*.
16:40:06XavierGrbecause if it is done as a setting to only increase the space from 3 - 7 then it is a waste
16:40:24 Join PaulJam [0] (
16:40:44bluebrotherwell, with that setting you can include other characters, so this definitely makes things more flexible
16:41:20bluebrotherwith that arguing you could consider the whole thing a waste on players with small targets if LCD_WIDTH / 4 comes around as something like 7 ...
16:42:03bluebrotherhmm, while thinking about it ... how making it part of the wps? I.e. define the scrolling line including the padding?
16:42:31bluebrotherthat way one could even use different padding strings depending on tag / subline / whatever
16:42:35XavierGrmy idea first, was to achieve something like iriver scrolling which shows an empty screen at the end of scrolling, using a large pad and a big step size I get this. At the expense of 30-40 bytes

16:44:28XavierGrbut having both could be confusing
16:44:32bluebrotherI might use such a feature in the wps but definitely not in lists
16:44:36linuxstbDoes FS #9455 currently affect all scrolling - i.e. in list (file) browser and WPS?
16:45:56linuxstbAnd the binsize increase is still almost 1KB? (I see 848 bytes quoted for an earlier version of the patch on h300)
16:46:02*bluebrother points out that he usually uses settings sane enough to rarely require scrolling −− slow lcds make scrolling a pain
16:46:16XavierGrlinuxstb: nope it should be rather small now
16:46:19XavierGrI should check
16:46:29*XavierGr checks
16:46:37lol3izerwhy are you guys so obsessed with binsize?
16:47:06bluebrotherlol3izer: because more RAM for buffering means less disc spinups. Less disc spinups mean longer battery runtime
16:47:27lol3izerbut a few K

19:41:24amiconnRegarding the test plugins - maybe we should have a 'developer build' option in configure, which will enable all the test stuff?
19:42:07amiconn(perhaps a sub-option for advanced builds)
19:42:22gevaertsgood idea
19:42:39amiconnThen the build system could produce such builds, and we would see whether the test stuff still compiles
19:42:54LambdaCalculus37amiconn: Good call.
19:43:09amiconnIt would mean that the master would need to strip the test stuff from the .zip files before putting them into the download folder
19:43:48amiconnHmm, or perhaps just build them, but don't include them in the .zip? Saves some upload time (build server -> master) as well
19:45:07amiconnThe exclusion could be part of the standard 'make zip', 'make 7zip' etc. There could be a special 'make devzip' which includes them

19:48:30amiconnWell, there are 3 cases. (1) A user who wants to build his own rockbox (perhaps with a few patches). The test_* plugins should neither be built nor zipped. (2) A dev who wants the test_* plugins. In this case they should be built and zipped. (3) The build system. Here the test_* plugins should be built but _not_ ziiped
19:49:46amiconnMy suggestion is to make building of the test_* plugins a configure option, and zipping them a separate make target
19:50:34linuxstbWhat's the point in not building them? They're all tiny compared to the rest of the plugins needed to be built.

20:27:23n1s1) Apple used it on ipod flash images before, 2) (AFAIK) noone else that uses the same SoC has encrypted firmware which suggests that apple did it themselves 3) analysis supports the theory that it is a stream cipher 4) if the key is short it should be doable (32 bits used on earlier flash images) reports of up to 48 bti keys brute forced in less than two weeks on distributed systems
20:27:41Hillshumso flyspray seems to request unicode, rb home doesn't

22:12:48XavierGrwhich is faster? memcpy or strncpy?
22:13:10funmanmemcpy obviously (no \0 check)
22:14:18XavierGrand if I make sure that the string has \0, what is more suitable strcpy or memcpy on the whole array?
22:14:41funmanmemcpy() with a nice comment why you don't use str*cpy ;)
22:15:33XavierGrI used strncpy with the 3rd parameter strlen(string) + 1 in order to avoid writing the whole array
22:15:38XavierGrbut I was told it is not so good
22:15:55linuxstbIf there is no trailing 0, what will strlen return?
22:16:06XavierGrthen yeah you will have a problem
22:16:15Unhelpfullinuxstb: don't do that. ;)
22:16:24Bagderand if you do a strlen, you can just as well use memcpy afterwards
22:16:36funmanhmm according to my test there is more than 8MB of RAM in the Clip (didn't found the upper limit yet)
22:17:00bertrikoh nice, but did you check for aliases?
22:17:11gevaertsAre you sure it's not just wrapping around?
22:17:22linuxstbfunman: Any idea what the extra 10MB of clipv2 firmware contains?
22:17:35XavierGrBagder: imagine a char array of 10 characters, but the string in question might be less e.g 5. Shouldn't be more efficient to just call strcpy?
22:17:35funmanI use the alias for MPMC Bank 4
22:17:56funmanlinuxstb: code, the firmware block is > 320kB and so it has to be in external RAM (which is mapped at 0)
22:17:57BagderXavierGr: yes
22:17:59XavierGrBagder: instead of memcpy or strncpy on the whole array?
22:18:13funmanbut that doesn't explain the large overhead with no new features advertised
22:18:18funmanmaybe it's a debug build ;)
22:18:45XavierGrI see, so strcpy would be better if I make sure that the \0 always exists
22:19:51 Join massiveH [0] (
22:20:01linuxstbIf the array is only 10 bytes, don't worry about speed - just write something that's safe and clear (e.g. strncpy)
22:20:32XavierGrlinuxstb: it can be as much as 60 butes actually (but lower too on other targets)
22:21:34XavierGrlinuxstb: can you please check #9455 in scroll_engine.c and display_menu.c, I was told by fml that strncpy with strlen is bad
22:22:28XavierGror does he mean that if you call strncpy the check for \0 is done internally so the third argument needs only to be sizeof the arrya?
22:22:33XavierGrarray too
22:23:24*linuxstb isn't sure he wants to get involved with 9455
22:23:42n1sXavierGr: using the array size is safer since strlen will keep counting until \0 so if the string wouldn't be terminated it would stop in some random place but if you use the array size it will at least stop there
22:24:03XavierGrn1s: yup now it is more clear thanks
22:25:25*domonoky1 thinks you should use strncpy(dest,source,sizeof(dest)); dest[sizeof(dest)-1] = '\0' to be always safe .. :-)
22:26:10Bagderif 'dest' is reasonably small I'd do it similar to that too
22:26:20*linuxstb was about to suggest what domonoky1 suggested, but would write it "= 0", not ='\0'
22:26:38domonoky1(if source is longer then dest, dest isnt null-terminated)
22:27:04XavierGrdomonoky1: in my case it can't be
22:27:27funmanweird I used a magic to check memory wrapping and I'm already past 4MB

22:31:06funmanbertrik: thanks
22:32:58*bluebrother was thinking to simply memset(dest, 0, sizeof(dest); memcpy(dest, src, sizeof(dest) - 1);
22:37:32Bagderthat's slower though
22:37:49XavierGrbut that would write the whole array two times
22:38:28Bagderremember that strncpy() zero-pads as well
22:41:41bluebrothertrue. But what happens if src is shorter than dest and dest has an old value in it?
22:41:56bluebrotherargh, overlooked that it's a local array. Ok, scrap that

22:44:53 Quit funman ("leaving")
22:46:26bertrikif you read very quickly after writing, the data value can be remembered by the capacitance of the data wires, so the data bus itself can act as a kind of memory (for just 1 word of data...)
22:47:23domonoky1bertrik: but if it the bus, it should only work for 1 word. even 2 would destroy it..
22:47:41Bagderbut if the value stays "if I read continuously" it is something else
22:48:00Bagderto me it sounds exactly like bad memory refresh
