#rockbox log for 2008-11-18

00:00:11gevaertswell,, yes :)
00:00:26denes_gevaerts: but it's a slow process - especially because I can only work on it only on the weekends mostly
00:00:46denes_gevaerts: but planetbeing has already reverse engineered the same FTL for the iphone
00:01:02gevaertsDon't feel guilty. I think you're the one who works most on the meizu port anyway these days
00:01:21gevaertsI saw that, yes. Should be useful
00:01:32denes_gevaerts: that's a very good starting point. still the m3/m6 needs to be reverse engineered, because there are differences unfortunatelly (the meizu ftl seems to be simplified version of the iphone ftl)
00:01:42Unhelpfulgevaerts: we have an audiobuffer_steal? ;)
00:02:01gevaertsUnhelpful: You need a #define for that one as well ;)
00:02:18denes_gevaerts: I don't feel guilty, especially because I am constantly working on this stuff still :) but there is no usable result yet unfortunatelly
00:02:23Unhelpfuli don't imagine a patch renaming it would be accepted ;/
00:03:10gevaertsdenes_: I know. It takes a long time to get results sometimes.
00:03:24*gevaerts should get back to the meizu port and get USB usable on it

00:03:33Nico_Pdenes_: does planetbeing share his code?
00:03:48 Quit bertrik ("Leaving")
00:03:51gevaertsI first need to finish the storage infrastructure work though
00:03:57denes_Nico_P: of course. http://github.com/planetbeing/iphonelinux/tree/master/trunk/openiboot/ftl.c
00:04:23denes_gevaerts: now the problem is, that there won't be an FTL with write support I am afraid
00:04:29denes_gevaerts: read only
00:04:48gevaertsSo same story as the tcc I guess
00:05:21denes_gevaerts: probably
00:05:57 Join skipper [0] (n=skipper@93-136-69-60.adsl.net.t-com.hr)
00:06:22gevaertsWell, shotofadds is starting to openly mention write support on tcc these days, so there's always hope :)
00:06:33denes_gevaerts: write support is a very hard part I am afraid. clever wearlevelling etc.
00:06:37funmanfrom reverse engineering i can't tell which values to use as source/destination peripherals in the DMA controller of sansa ams :(
00:07:26denes_gevaerts: another option is to forget OF compatibility and use some FTL from eg. linux
00:08:15gevaertsThat's not a very well liked idea in general though
00:08:18shotofaddsgevaerts: I think it might not be too hard to code something that "works" in the tcc case, but I don't understand the wear levelling well enough to guaranteee it wouldn't reduce the life of your player somewhat.... that is the risk.
00:08:41denes_yes, that's exactly the problem what shotofadds is saying :(
00:08:57*shotofadds for one wouldn't use rockbox on the d2 if it sacrificed the OF
00:09:12shotofaddsbut we;ve been over that argument before..
00:09:24denes_... part of the problem anyway
00:10:28markundenes_: I'm happy that at least you are working on it
00:10:37markunI haven't touched my meizu in weeks :(
00:10:56denes_gevaerts: I could send in the primitive nand reset, read id and read page function on the weekend - but they are very simple, and not doing much without the ftl
00:11:08*gevaerts touched his meizus recently to build a tower with them
00:11:18markunah yes, me too :)
00:11:22markunin NY
00:11:24denes_markun: I might get an m6sl, to try to make the lcd work
00:11:55markundenes_: great. I think we are almost there.
00:12:00 Join JdGordon|zzz [0] (n=jonno@rockbox/developer/JdGordon)
00:12:11denes_also porting rockbox to the ipod touch might be simple, seeing the progress planetbeing achieved on iphonelinux
00:12:49gevaertsDon't say that too loud. People will start asking for progress then
00:13:08denes_gevaerts: :)
00:13:45markundenes_: and will it be useful?
00:14:20denes_markun: on the ipod touch? i don't know. I mean what use does listening to music have ? :D
00:14:59denes_markun: I don't know, but i think there is an lcd driver and the ftl for the iphone/ipod touch (I might be wrong though)

07:34:54JAEK_question for dev team.. whover that may be
07:36:38JAEK_what is the issue with supporting classic iPods on rockbox, and is it planned for future releases?
07:36:45LloreanJAEK_: We don't plan ports.
07:36:58LloreanIf people are interested enough in the port, they work on it. If not, they don't.
07:37:16JAEK_so if I want to support it, I should get into the effort?
07:37:19LloreanYes.
07:37:22scorchethere are a few issues including encryption on the firmware, new, undocumented hardware, and having no one working on the port isnt helping much
07:37:51JAEK_do ya'll have a heavy base of support in general, or is it 'fleeting'
07:38:04scorchesupport in what regard?
07:38:10JAEK_as far as coders, sorry
07:38:37LloreanDepends on your definition of heavy
07:38:47LloreanYou can see from the changelog that there's near-constant development going on.
07:39:21JAEK_I'd noticed that, I guess my question is how many people are working the project at any given time.
07:40:04LloreanIsn't "how much work gets done" more important than "how many people do the work?"
07:40:09LloreanBut, again, the changelog holds your answer
07:40:27LloreanYou can see the names of the latest contributors and how often they've done so in the last X period of time, where "X" is whatever you feel is suitable for judging.

14:42:20lamedhi guys. i'm making sure for someone that mailed me. he's basically asking if rockbox runs on sansa e280. I believe it will?
14:43:11*linuxstb plays the role of property policeman and fixes
14:43:25advcomp2019lamed, what version do you have
14:44:28lamedHE mentioned he just bought it. does that means he should check v2?
14:45:24advcomp2019if it going bought it, it might be a v2, but check the sansa firmware to see
14:48:36lamedok. but the question remains, it's not an e200. it's an e280. when on the release page it clearly states "SanDisk Sansa e200". so can it be run on an e280? (if it's not version 2 that is)
14:49:01LambdaCalculus37e280 refers to the capacity of the Sansa (e280 is 8GB).
14:49:18n1slamed: e200 means all the various e2x0 models
14:49:20LambdaCalculus37And e200 is just an umbrella term for a series of players (e250, e260, e270, and e280).

16:34:36linuxstbfunman: Hopefully 2MB won't mean any limitations on the clipv1 features
16:35:18PhotoguySo any ideas of what player I should purchase next?
16:35:20kugelthere's still that flash_buffering patch (where it practically doesn't buffer) by Nico_P
16:35:30pixelmaZagor: did you see that rombox targets still suffer weird build failures?
16:35:32Zagorlinuxstb: lots of codecs require >2MB ram
16:35:58linuxstbZagor: That's just a hack in SOURCES - we need to work on those codecs to include them...
16:35:58funmanlinuxstb: musepack, wma, aac, sid(?), ape, nsf(?), spc(?), and asap(?) codecs at least are disabled if the target has 2MB of RAM or less
16:36:22linuxstbfunman: What I just said to Zagor...
16:36:40linuxstbI think I excluded those codecs quite recently, to get the telechips ports compiling.
16:36:40kugelwasn't there something in mr.somones todo list?
16:37:17kugel"Figure out how to remove or reduce mallocs in Tremor and AAC codecs so we can reduce the size of the huge codec buffer. "
16:37:29pixelmaZagor: and the H1x0s have a rombox too (forgot that but was reminded by the reds in the build table)
16:37:50funmannote that currently m200v4 & clip don't build with 512kB plugin buffer and 1MB codec buffer
16:38:49Zagorpixelma: I have seen it, but I'm focusing on the new build
16:38:51linuxstbIs the clip running at full speed now? i.e. CPU boosted, cache enabled, etc?
16:39:40funmanyes
16:40:02funmantesting if devices work with lower clock speeds would be interesting (to implement cpu_boost/unboost)
16:40:05linuxstbHave you done any tests on memory speed? (SDRAM vs IRAM) ?
16:40:36funmaniirc IRAM was 25% faster, but i didn't do very precise mesures (I did it with the second-precise RTC)
16:40:49 Join bmbl [0] (n=Miranda@unaffiliated/bmbl)
16:42:27linuxstbAnd plugins are working?
16:42:51funmanthe ones I could build, and which don't use greylib, yes.
16:43:02*linuxstb thinks it's time to start running test_codec to get some decoding speed benchmarks...
16:43:36funmani'm not sure what's the problem with greylib, i didn't re-test the timer since i wrote it
16:43:38linuxstbIs IRAM being used as IRAM? i.e. does crt0.S and app.lds implement it?
16:44:16funmannot sure about crt0.S, I couldn't put any segment into iram without overflowing it, so I just put everything into SDRAM
16:44:20*linuxstb should probably pay more attention to the commits...

16:45:26linuxstbAnd crt0.S needs to copy things to iram on boot. But that should just be a copy/paste from another crt0.S

17:07:45saratogaICODE_ATTR_TREMOR_NOT_MDCT is defined in some of the config files in firmware/export, but its not actually used by anything since tremor redefines it in config-tremor.h
17:08:24saratogai'd like to remove it from config files, but I guess the intent was to control IRAM allocation on a per target basis by editing config files

17:08:33saratogarather then having to edit codecs
17:09:06LambdaCalculus37saratoga: Sounds like a good idea. Try it out.
17:10:35saratogacurrently we just let codecs decide their IRAM use by checking the CPU model number
17:10:50saratogai'd prefer to have each codec poll the amount of IRAM availabel and decide for itself
17:10:58saratogabut maybe others would disagree with me?
17:12:02linuxstbsaratoga: IIUC, config-tremor.h doesn't redefine it - it only defines it if no target config file has already defined it.
17:13:45linuxstbBut I agree, the target config file doesn't seem the right place for it - it should be determined elsewhere based on hardware characteristics.

17:54:25pixelmakerwood_wk: unfortunately it's not as easy, otherwise it would already have been fixed I guess. The metronome plugin uses the so-called "pluginlib actions" system to define the keymaps and if there are conflicts which lead to controls not working, you only have limited and not so nice ways to fix them.
17:55:27pixelmaIt was agreed on getting rid of this system in plugins with "problematic" controls, unfortunately this needs a bit of more work which nobody has done yet

20:56:36LloreanSome of us don't see a point to it.
20:56:48LloreanAll it does is leave the backlight on longer during a period where you're not reading the screen anyway.
20:57:14LloreanOr make it take longer for the screen to become readable when you want to.
20:57:24funmanit's purely eye-candy (and i don't see a problem with eye-candiness)

21:00:24kugelimho it adds a new experience. I find it much nicer than instant on/off, I'd even say it adds a relaxation factor

21:01:23Lloreankugel: Only if your the kind of person who stays staring at the screen after you're done using it, I suppose.
21:01:32pixelmaI find it worse because the device doesn't feel as responsive (much like music fading in/out)
21:01:35kugelfor the e200 it's especially, since the lcd_enable is very prominent (it really flashes, since the screen is all white for a split second) when backlight turns of, although that could be fixed w/o fading too
21:02:03amiconnkugel: Fading out is okay, but the beast fades in atm. That's annoying
21:02:24kugelpixelma: I can't say the device is less responsive at all, unlike to the music fade in/out where I agree with you
21:02:43pixelmaor at least unnecessary
21:03:00Lloreankugel: She said it doesn't *feel* as responsive, not that it isn't as responsive.
21:03:25LloreanIt changes the subjective experience.
21:03:31kugeland I said it's not less responsive at all for me
21:03:44Lloreankugel: You're missing the key word: For her it feels less responsive.
21:03:56LloreanYou responded "it isn't less responsive", but she never said it isn't less responsive.
21:04:00kugelactually for me it feels even more responsive since you can interrupt the fading process

21:06:34LloreanAnd you aren't going to convince people that it's frustrating for that it's not by saying "I find it relaxing"
21:07:06LloreanSome people want their player to respond instantly to a button press by having the light fully on, and not waste time and battery fading when they're done.
21:07:28kugelthere's no need to wait until it finished fading
21:07:33funmanI've 2 questions regarding codec/plugin buffers.
21:07:46funmanIs test_codec loaded in plugin or codec buffer ?
21:08:14funmanDoes the code assume the codec buffer is at least 1MB, or will it respect the size mentioned in config-xx.h ?

21:08:49Lloreankugel: Yes, but to some people it feels "slow" that the light isn't on instantly.
21:09:04pixelmaI could understand fade out a bit more than fade in - as a sign of "backlight turns off soonish"

21:10:12kugelpixelma: fading in feels much shorter anyway
21:10:58*kugel doesn't know why exactly, but assumes some human eye/brain reason
21:10:59Lloreanfunman: test_codec uses the plugin buffer, and the codecs it loads are the normal codecs, which are restricted by the define at compile-time I believe.
21:11:03amiconnFading out doesn't delay the UI
21:11:04funmanat least I see that test_codec.c uses CODEC_SIZE and not a hardcoded 1MB buffer
21:11:30Lloreanfunman: Sorry, *test_codec* is loaded to the plugin buffer, the codecs should load in the codec buffer still I believe
21:11:34amiconnWith fade in, I have to press a button, then wait until I see something, and then continue with what I want to do
21:11:41kugelamiconn: fading in doesn't either, unless you're going to wait until it's finished

21:26:43funmandomonoky: do you understand like me that we have to use the LLI register in DMA controller, even if we do sequential (not incrementing for the SD FIFO) reads/writes ?
21:27:24funmani.e. we would have to use a single recursive Linked List Item
21:27:42gevaertsamiconn: maybe a zip with all changed files?
21:28:22domonokyfunman: looks like it, but i havent completly understand it...
21:28:58funmandomonoky: look at the data flow page 76
21:30:01funmanoh .. the LLI is used only when the transfer has completed. I believe we could define a transfer as X*8*32bits (8*32bits being the SD FIFO size)
21:30:51amiconngevaerts: amiconn.dyndns.org/~jens/libdemac.zip">http://amiconn.dyndns.org/~jens/libdemac.zip Unzip this into apps/codecs/demac/libdemac/
21:30:55domonokyyes, and set the LLI to 0, so it only does one transfer..
21:31:14funmanwell "transfer size" is only used when the DMA controller is the flow controller, I'm not sure what happens when the SD controller is the flow controller
21:32:11amiconnNote that this is a hack, and will most probably cause conflicts later if not reverted manually. After applying it, please test APE decoding speed for -c2000 ... -c4000, using the same track as you used for the SoundCodecMonkeysAudio table
21:32:20funmandomonoky: but, what is 'one transfer'?
21:32:58amiconnThis is to test whether the arm7tdmi code with 32 bit filters is faster than svn using C and 16 bit filters
21:33:44amiconn(and hence should be used on all armv4, not only arm7tdmi)

22:06:58amiconnUsing 16 bits for the filters means less memory accesses, but on armv4 unstuffing 16 bit values from ldm'd data causes significant overhead for the multiply-accumulate step
22:07:36 Quit tyfoo (Read error: 145 (Connection timed out))
22:08:55amiconnRegarding integer division - coldfire has a 'div' instruction so speed is ok. ARM doesn't, so there's a subroutine. I already optimised this division function for armv4 (for armv5 and higher the libgcc function can't be optimised further afaics, except for a single instruction which is insignificant)
22:09:53saratogathe best thing for integer division on ARM is to not do it, which means look up tables or whatever

22:12:30Unhelpfulhrm, that's possibly trouble. i'm using bresenham's to interpolate coordinates, with the error value aligned so as to be equal to the fractional part of the interpolated point. bresenham's can possibly be used for linear interpolation of color values within lines, but it will be trickier to get right for that, and will mean three more sets of start/end points and error to keep track of
22:12:54russell__too bad doom doesnt play on it :(
22:12:54Unhelpfuland having three of those for each pixel in the line when scaling between the lines will be completely absurd

22:15:49amiconnUnhelpful: 32 bit division takes 38 cycles on coldfire iirc. On ARM it takes ~60 cyles on average, ~120 cycles worst case (it depends on the number of significant quotient bits)

23:45:53Zagorshould firmware/target/arm/as3525/sansa-e200v2/timer-target.h have a TIMER_FREQ design? it seems all as3525 timer-target.h lack it.

23:47:50linuxstbZagor: Yes, I expect so. That code is very new... I've no idea what it should be though.
23:47:59*linuxstb pings funman
23:48:06funmanZagor: yes, and this file should even move to ../
23:48:25Zagorfunman: so they all share the same file?
23:48:38funmanyes
23:49:04funmanexcept button and lcd, i can't see something else model-specific

23:49:50funmanSDRAM perhaps, and we might find that a bit differ in some driver in the future, but all these sansav2 ams share a lot (due to the common SoC)

23:50:48funmanZagor: i had computed the timer frequency for the kernel tick, but i was wrong and I set it to an approximate value before making real measurements
23:50:54Zagorok I won't try to get that through the built just yet then
23:51:23funmanZagor: i couldn't make greylib work anyway, just set a random value if you really want it to be built
23:52:42funmanZagor: do you own a sansa ams or are you just being curious ?
23:53:01ZagorI'm going through all targets with the new makefiles
23:53:26Zagorand it stopped on metronome plugin for e200v2, since that uses TIMER_FREQ
23:53:53Zagorbut I'll skip it for now, since it's not building in svn either
23:54:36funmangood point - if you want to build v2 targets anyway, e200v2 is enough, plugins build because they share keymaps with v1, but fuze/m200v4/clip don't.
23:57:25darrenbownRight, I'm assuming the question about rbutil crashing after running on OS X 10.5.5 has already been asked several hundred times here?
23:57:28darrenbownI saw the FS bug but it didn't really offer a solution
23:57:52BigBambiI haven't seen it asked
23:58:05Lloreandarrenbown: So what exactly is your question? If there's a bug on it, and the bug is still open, then it's still unsolved.
23:58:10LloreanWhat task number is it?
