05:58:21Xydenanyone in here who builds voice files?
05:58:44LloreanDid you have a specific question?
05:58:51Xydenyeah.
05:59:06XydenI'm using cygwin to build them from the source that I got from svn trunk
05:59:13Unhelpfulyou should probably ask that, then. and be *patient*, somebody who can answer it might not be around when you ask.
05:59:55Xydenwhen I build the english.voice file, 2 things are happening, 1. the voice is not set to that in my windows control pannel, and 2. a a lot of the speaking prompts are messed up, like for batter status it says buffer size etc.
06:00
06:00:12LloreanXyden: Have you edited the script to choose what voice it needs to use?
06:00:26XydenI didn't know I had to do that when in cygwin
06:00:30LloreanAnd, is the SVN revision of the source you're building voices against EXACTLY the same as the SVN revision installed on your player?
06:00:45Xydenno
06:00:55Xydenok.
06:00:59LloreanWell, the voice version has to match the installed Rockbox version.
06:01:04XydenI will build a rockbox for my ipod
06:01:15Xydenand rebuild a matching voice file.
06:01:26Xydenbut about the voice difference?
06:01:34LloreanThat's what causes the voice difference...
06:01:42Xydenwhat do I edit to have the ../tools/configure recognize my neospeech voice?
06:01:53LloreanIs Neospeech SAPI4 or SAPI5?
06:01:58Xydensapi5
06:02:20XydenI was told that if I set neospeech in windows control that it would use that, but its not the case.
06:02:31LloreanI'm not certain. I believe the script that makes the voices is in the /tools folder.
06:02:41Xydenits using of one of the realspeak voices that are not set as my default.
06:02:55Xydenalright, I will look into this.
06:02:56LloreanI *think* it's supposed to use the default voice, but this seems not to be the case.
06:03:05LloreanIf you use RButil, it should use the default voice.
06:03:14Xydenrbutil isn't accessible.
06:03:28XydenI'm blind, and the interface doesn't read for my screen reader.
06:03:43Xydenthats a whole nother can of warms that I'm trying to work on.
06:03:54Xydenworms
06:06:37XydenI'll look at the script in the tools dir.
06:06:38Xydenthanks.

07:51:31amiconnLlorean: 'make voice' is not supposed to use the default voice. It is supposed to use the first available voice for the chosen language, unless you specify the voice to use in configure (sapi options)
07:52:09Lloreanamiconn: Thanks.
07:52:20LloreanMaybe it should use the default voice, rather than the first available, then?
07:52:28LloreanIf that's possible.
07:52:32*Llorean knows far too little about this
07:52:41amiconnIt can't, since the default is only for a single, unpredictable language
07:52:53Unhelpfulcan it find out what that language is? ;/
07:53:34amiconnE.g. you can have the default set to English, but chose to build a German voice file.
07:54:18Unhelpfulamiconn: right, but could it use your default voice IFF that voice is in the language you're buildng, and fall back to the first-available logic otherwise?
07:54:29Lloreanis it possible to just list available voices for that language and always prompt then?
07:54:49amiconnThe script always tries to set a voice, after filtering the available ones against the selected language (at least).
07:55:07amiconnThat would be annoying
07:55:19LloreanHow so?
07:55:25LloreanIt's just like picking a target to compile for.
07:55:28amiconnJust use /voice:MyVoice when configuring
07:55:53LloreanWhy don't the people who know how it works do that, and the people who don't know get told they need to pick from a list?
07:55:54amiconnIf the name contains spaces, the whole thing needs single quotes
07:56:17Lloreanthe problem isn't people who know about switches like that, it's the normal users who don't know what to expect.
07:56:50amiconn*If* we want to present a list to choose from, it should be done in configure, and then we need another vbscript, which nobody has written
07:57:12LloreanSorry, I was meaning it should be in configure, I guess I didn't make that clear.
08:00
08:00:58amiconnThis script would need to check which voices are available for the chosen language, and then either present the list itself and return the choice, or return the list of available voices and let configure process it. There's also the possibility that no voices are available
08:01:32amiconnFurther complexity is introduced by the sapi4/sapi4 alternatives
08:01:41amiconnErr, sapi4/sapi5

15:36:47funmanand since it finds the file at all, it means the FAT32 bits are read correctly as well ..
15:39:04Zagorkugel: what is the gain of changing it in the bootloader? surely #9567 is a lot more useful?
15:42:04kugelZagor: I don't know. It just doesn't make sense to me that this #define isn't used in there

15:44:39kugelmy patch doesn't intend to make the boot dir configurable with configure. It simply puts the symbol in there, so that if -ever - anyone wants to change it (in the target config OR with #9567 maybe with configure) does only need to change BOOTDIR and not both BOOTDIR and common.c (and probably other files as well)

15:49:16***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
15:49:17kugele.g. for the config file
15:49:41Zagorno it should look for everything in the configured directory
15:50:13kugelah yea I see
15:50:39kugelZagor: imho it should #undef BOOTDIR and define a new one if the parameter is given
15:50:55kugeland settings.h should do #define ROCKBOX_DIR BOOTDIR
15:51:15ZagorI think BOOTDIR and ROCKBOX_DIR are two different things
15:51:31kugelwell depends on what you build
15:51:32ZagorBOOTDIR is for the bootloader. where to load the firmware file.
15:51:49ZagorROCKBOX_DIR is for the rockbox binary. where to look for config files, wps etc.
15:51:53kugelbut as you build bootloader and main build seperately you can use BOOTDIR for either
15:52:22Zagoryes but calling it BOOTDIR is confusing when in fact it doesn't boot into it
15:52:29Zagor(when you build the application)
15:52:37kugelI mean, so this could be easily adapted to also allow a different bootdir
15:53:07kugelzagor that's why #define ROCKBOX_DIR BOOTDIR, so that it'll be ROCKBOX_DIR for non-bootloader stuff
15:53:17kugeland not confusing
15:53:54kugelif it'd redefine bootdir it would be very easy to also let the bootdir be configurable

16:04:01pondlifeWill try tonight, hopefully

16:06:00pondlifeWill do
16:09:51kugelZagor: if there's no reason (and I doubt there is one too), it would make more sense to remove that argument and let load_firmware just use BOOTFILE

16:50:20wikkiI wonder how the ipod software handles that
16:50:39wikkiI think they must have some special tags in their database
16:50:57wikkiamarok handles it well too
16:51:35funmanwikki: i'm not sure what you mean, you have tagged files that you don't want to see in the tags list ?
16:52:09wikkisay I have 10 compilations, each with 10 songs with 10 different artists
16:52:12wikkithat's 100 artists
16:52:23wikkiI also have 10 other single album artists
16:52:47funmanare those mp3 with id3v2 tags?
16:53:01wikkiso in the apple firmware when I go to artists I only see the 10
16:53:02wikkiyes
16:53:28funmanperhaps amarok/ipod OS use folder or album sorting?
16:53:28wikkibecause apple some how understands that those other 100 are in compilations
16:54:20funmanI have the same problem with compilations, but my solution is "if you don't want to see the artist, don't tag it" :)
16:54:28wikkiyeah
16:54:35Zagorfunman: well you do want to see it when you play the track
16:54:40wikkiyes :)

17:49:19***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
17:49:57stsquad2Hmmm. I'm not sure of the value of tying the bootloader code to the main app with config. The original point of my patch was to have a failsafe reset to known good code (Boot->/.rockbox) while allowing easy testing of the main build (Rockbox->Alternate Rockbox). This may make it easier to get confused with bootloaders?
17:50:48kugelstsquad2: you don't touch real bootloader code
17:51:13kugelas of now, the bootloader doesn't even use BOOTDIR
17:52:24kugelstsquad2: if you redefine BOOTDIR and we focus on using BOOTDIR instead of hardcoded "/.rockbox/"es, then your patch will be protable and consistent over build types

18:49:46*amiconn wonders whether there's a #define somewhere that allows to build a beast build with 532MHz cpu clock
18:49:48kugelsomone with an x5 here? I wonder why it doesn't use pwm fading
18:50:02*amiconn should check whether performance changes linearly
18:50:13 Quit spiorf (Remote closed the connection)
18:50:56amiconnkugel: It can't.
18:51:11n1samiconn: i tried messing with the clock a while ago, and changing the clock for the whole mcu worked fine but that means everything runs from that clock then, chnging just the core speed just froze for me
18:51:40amiconnSoftware PWM backlight fading is only possible if (a) the backlight is GPIO controlled, and (b) it's dimmable, i.e. LED backlight
18:52:00amiconnX5 doesn't meet (a)
18:52:29kugelah ok
18:52:47 Quit Horscht ("electromagnetic radiation from satellite debris")
18:52:56kugelbut it's certainly a possible target for my software fading patch. Is anyone available for testing?
18:53:03amiconnH1x0 remote and archos Ondio don't meet (b) (they have EL backlight)
18:53:14 Join nuonguy [0] (n=john@c-71-198-1-139.hsd1.ca.comcast.net)
18:53:27amiconnThere's even one target that meets (a) and (b) yet cannot fade the backlight
18:53:56kugelamiconn: meeting b also means the brightness is adjustable correct?
18:54:35kugelso every target that meets (b) can use my software fade
18:55:04amiconnNo. It means that the backlight can be dimmed by using PWM (hardware or software). EL backlight can be brightness adjusted (by changing the voltage), but it cannot use PWM
18:56:15gevaertsCan someone else have a look at FS #9568? This is an 80GB ipod boot issue, and the data don't make much sense to me
18:56:18amiconnOtoh, brightness adjustment is *not* a precondition for backlight fading. H1x0 and iPod G3, G4, Color, the Minis are examples
18:56:19kugelthe x5 backlight controller appears to be similar to the h300 one, at least for backlight_set_brightness
18:56:49amiconnIt is, it just has fewer steps
18:57:11amiconnAlthough the G4 and Color *should* be able to adjust brightness (via hardware PWM), just nobody figured it out yet
18:57:24ringo999gevaerts: but from what you see, is it formated in the correct way?
18:57:28amiconnAnd it should have pretty fine-grained brightness control...

18:58:08kugelso who could test my fading on a x5?

19:00:14ringo999gevaerts: well, maybe something went wrong during formating?
19:00:15amiconnArchos Player.
19:00:48amiconnIt has LED backlight controlled via GPIO, but no matter how short you make the pulses, it goes full brightness, unless there are no pulses at all

19:01:02amiconnI think there's a capacitor involved
19:01:42gevaertsringo999: could be. Has it been formatted without itunes?
19:02:08amiconnThe fading code works; I verified it using the red LED instead. Fades perfectly, but that's useless....
19:02:20kugelheh
19:02:21ringo999gevaerts: yes
19:02:48ringo999gevaerts: from the wiki link you send me: FOR 5.5G USERS using mkfs.vfat often seems to work, but it creates FAT filesystems that the rockbox code doesn't always handle properly, resulting in non-booting ipods
19:03:04kugelamiconn: is the x5 backlight controller as slow as the h300 one?
19:03:14gevaertsringo999: ok. That could explain it :)
19:03:30*kugel just heard the h300 one is slow
19:03:34ringo999gevaerts: so I try to reformat?

22:36:35gevaertskugel: on c200 the backlight fades out immediately when I set backlight to "off". However, when I then press "down" (i.e. to On) with fading enabled, the backlight turns on but the LCD itself is off (i.e. black). It needs anoher keypress to get the image back

22:38:54*Nico_P got some compile errors with kugel's patch, because of make -j

22:47:33kugelgevaerts: hm
22:48:01kugelgevaerts: how long did you wait between setting going from off to on?
22:49:28kugellasser: indeed
22:50:04gevaertskugel: waiting time doesn't seem to matter. It is a bit complicated however

22:50:59gevaertsWith only fade in enabled (no fade out), the backlight doens't go on on "on->off" transition, but it does go on (together with the image) on second keypress
22:51:45gevaertsWith only fade out enabled (no fade in), the backlight doesn't go on on "on->off" transition, and it stays off, no matter what buttons I press
22:51:46kugelgevaerts: I've noticed similar things on the e200 (it's white in this case). But I tracked that down to a bug in lcd_enable

22:52:19kugelyou can experience that in svn too if you're a bit lucky
22:52:54kugelit's harder to reproduce in svn though
22:53:28gevaertsWith only fade out, it does indeed only go off after pressing select on "off"

23:02:22amiconnMeh, shell special characters are nasty
23:02:43*amiconn 's latest commit msg misses a part due to this

23:05:25*amiconn is wondering about root.make line 95
23:06:02amiconn580 colums (!!), weird spacing, and it misses rombox.ucl
23:09:54bluebrotherlooks like messed up line breaks (and missing \'s)
23:10:00kugelgevaerts: if you only enabled fade in it doesn't go off when switching to off?
23:10:31lasserkugel: with lcd_fade v12 it is the same as with v11, with brightness 1 and fade in no upcoming backlight...
23:11:27kugellasser: yea, I'll have it fixed in the next version
23:12:15*amiconn summons Zagor
23:12:55gevaertskugel: no, that's when I only enable fade out
23:13:29amiconnThe problem fixed in r19176 could have been fixed in a different way (by adding .ovl to .SUFFIXES in root.make). But imho using $(basename $@) is better
23:13:49amiconnOpinions?
23:14:35kugelgevaerts: well, it goes of for me (after some seconds)
23:14:47*kugel needs to inspect that more anyway
23:15:18gevaertskugel: well, yes, that's the previous setting. It doesn't go off immediately like it should

23:40:40gevaertsIndeed. Exactly the same
23:40:55kugelthe same issues?
23:41:35kugelalso that one where the backlight is on but the lcd is black?
23:43:46gevaertsNot that one, no. All others
23:48:04kugelgevaerts: see, that's a bug in lcd_enable. Nothing much I can do about
23:48:15gevaertsSure you can :)
23:48:16kugeldo much about*
23:48:28kugelwell, maybe in a seperate patch
23:49:27kugelgevaerts: I've taken a look at it. And it's full of sleeps and such stuff. that' probably messes up the timing. But I assume they are there because it's not working otherwise
23:49:28***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
23:51:44kugelgevaerts: can you try that one? It uses the way of using the backlight thread (not jhMikeS approach) and it works better for me
23:52:53kugelthe old way that is
