#rockbox log for 2008-12-08

00:00:48bluebrotherpixelma: just committed my rename. Hopefully didn't broke anything else ...

00:06:35pixelmanot very important probably but is a combined log of the 5th and 6th (so the first part is doubled)
00:09:56Zagorhow odd
00:12:39pixelmafixed now?
00:13:28Zagorthe 6th was a tough day for logbot
00:13:37pixelmaI already thought I was imagining it... :)
00:14:09Zagoramazing that it got anything logged at all
00:16:27kugelUnhelpful: you didn't change pictureflow to use your scaling. Is there a reason for that (such as the pluginlib scaler looks better)?
00:16:58Unhelpfulkugel: only that the album art and sliding_puzzle changes were already done
00:17:21kugelah ok :)
00:17:38Unhelpfuli only had to make minor changes to sliding_puzzle vs the previous resize-on-load patch. AA loading needed nothing new done at all, except to handle the rebuffering

00:29:44OvermindDL1Greetings, does anyone who manages the website here right now?
00:30:25advcomp2019OvermindDL1, there is people.. why do you ask?
00:31:30OvermindDL1Just tried to sign up with the forum, it apparently skipped a few character in my username, so I deleted the account, and I apparently cannot sign-up with the correct username until an admin finishes validating the deletion; it does not let me sign up again due to being from the same IP
00:32:39 Quit RETiRED`ShorTLiF ()
00:33:20OvermindDL1Perhaps I could ask my question here though, I currently have an old Sandisk e250v1, been running rockbox on it since day one, but the thing is getting a bit beaten up, so was thinking about getting a Fuze since they are rather cheap on NewEgg right now, was wondering about the current status of the Fuze port, yes I found that long Forum Topic, but it does not really say how far they have to go for it, I think I gathe
00:34:19advcomp2019i do not know what is going on with that tho.. as far as i know, the fuze still has a few issues

00:36:45unstableI want to buy a micro sdhc card, for the Sansa e280 .. can someone just verify what I'm buying before I check out...
00:37:08unstableWill that card work? It says microsdhc, but the shape in the picture doesn't seem right to me. Is that the right card for the e280?
00:37:34OvermindDL1I did not know SDHC cards ran on the e2?0's, do they run on the e250 as well? If so that would be quite nice, what is the max size supported?
00:38:30_Auron_I hope I'll be able to rockbox the sansa I ordered from woot
00:38:44woosterunstable that shape looks wrong but they say it sells with an SD I dunno
00:38:51unstableOvermindDL1: I think someone said in theory, it can go up to 32GB
00:39:03unstableOvermindDL1: But the biggest micro sdhc card you can buy is 16GB I think.
00:39:08 Join saratoga [0] (n=9803c6dd@gateway/web/cgi-irc/
00:39:14bluebrotherOvermindDL1: SDHC are supported on Rockbox. They are not supported by the OF, so you need a card reader to transfer files
00:39:16OvermindDL1And the e250 will support it with rockbox?
00:39:16unstablewooster: ok, I'm not crazy. That shape does look wrong.
00:39:19_Auron_I thought microSDHC was limited to 16GB and SDHC is limited to 64GB
00:39:31OvermindDL1I have an sdhc card reader, just never tried sticking one in the e250...
00:39:58bluebrotherOvermindDL1: why shouldn't it? There's no difference in regard of memory cards between the e200 models ...
00:40:37bluebrotherthe SDHC spec is currently limited at 32GB, but as far as I understood that's quite arbitrary and can easily be changed
00:40:38OvermindDL1just between v1 and v2 then?
00:41:25bluebrothere200 v1 and v2 are completely different hardware. But in the same line there is no real difference except the size of the internal memory
00:41:34unstableWell 32GB is hard to find, I think there is a prototype card, and it costs a lot of money.
00:41:44unstable16GB is the practical limit at this point in time right now.
00:42:07bluebrothertrue, but that will change
00:42:20bluebrotheranyway, gtg now.
00:42:22 Quit bluebrother ("leaving")
00:44:51OvermindDL1So, should I just go ahead and get the fuze while it is very cheap on newegg and just let it sit until rockbox works, or should it still take a while (by a while I mean at least 6 months) till it gets to a full working status on par with the e2?0?

02:54:23webguestHi, I have a Toshiba Gigabeat F40, and have recently installed Rockbox. Unfortuantley, I can't play any of the music, because of the .sat encryption. I understand there is a place for this in the wiki, but the instructions do not work. Is there another way to decrypt the .Sat file so I can simply play the .mp3's?

02:58:46LloreanIt's one of those "generally wanted" features, so as long as the patch seems to be pretty good it's safe to go with it.
02:58:57LloreanWe MAY want to wait until after the 3.1 freeze ends.
02:59:21saratogai want it in for 3.1 if possible
02:59:43LloreanWell, I don't see any real problem with it trying to go in.

03:03:34JdGordonI wouldnt be against not allowing it to rebuffer on wps change and just show "no aa" untill the next one is available
03:03:44*JdGordon would also like it in for 3.1 to show a nice new feature
03:03:55LloreanI kinda like the idea of having a new feature for 3.1 as well.
03:04:32LloreanAnd it's "small enough" that we can probably revert its changes if we can't get it working quite right by the time we branch.
03:04:34JdGordonalthough, without proper testing it could get nasty

03:26:50Davide-NYCI'm trying to do some testing on the GigabeatS but am running into the "file not found" error
03:27:04Davide-NYCOf course I forget how to fix and can't find reference to it in the wiki
03:27:09jhMikeSUsing the .tar trick doesn't work? It does for me.
03:27:32Davide-NYCplease describe the .tar trick. I'm unfamiliar
03:28:02Davide-NYCI can get into the bootloader's USB mode to access both partitions

03:28:50Lloreansaratoga: If it's expected to be working, maybe it should go in now. If anyone gets upset, we can agree to remove it before we branch for the RC if problems aren't fixed by then? Gives us a fair chance at getting the feature in, but we don't let it hold up the release?

04:54:47Lloreanviperman03: If it was never intended for inclusion, it shouldn't have been submitted in the first place.

04:55:29LloreanIf an author wants to work on a version of multifont for inclusion, we'd welcome a task for it.
04:55:42Unhelpfulattempting integration would mean a developer working on it to make it ready
04:58:13viperman03ver y understandable ... I'm not even sure if the original author was keeping tabs on how the patch developed to was it was. At any rate, my coding skills are quite limited and I was simply cusious if there was any past discussion made on this type of patch.
04:58:34 Quit esthar ("KVIrc 3.4.0 Virgo")
04:58:35LloreanI think a well done multifont patch would have a fair shot at inclusion.
04:59:10LloreanThere's already a syntax for using multiple fonts in the WPS, though currently it's limited to the compiled-in system font and whichever one user font is loaded.
04:59:44Unhelpfulit looks like somebody synced it in september. how out of sync it is now depends on the amount of work done in the files it touches
05:00:45Unhelpfulwould maybe font= :-separated-list be a better idea, than specific named fonts?
05:01:43LloreanUnhelpful: I think the problem is more with the use of the existing glyphcache, etc, than concerns about the syntax.
05:01:45Unhelpfulwe could have a set limit to the list length, of course... but that seems more flexible in terms of having WPS that uses more than one font, unless people really do want a different font each for menu, browser, tuner, record, and wps.
05:03:24UnhelpfulLlorean: i know nothing about the font/text drawing code. stuff on the wiki suggests it's harder than what i've had to work with lately.
05:07:33viperman03"Font is a number - 0 is the built-in system font, 1 is the user-selected font" I assume this is what you were refering to as "syntax for using multiple fonts in the WPS" ?
05:08:22Davide-NYCLlorean: I'm wondering whatever happened (if anything at all) to the USB Charge settings patch? Particularly for the H1x0 targets? Has anyone expressed any interest as far as you know?
05:08:47Davide-NYCI'm talking about the "Ask, Always, Never" setting for USB cable connect.
05:09:00LloreanDavide-NYC: Well, the H100 isn't likely a particular concern for it anyway
05:09:12Davide-NYCWhy is that?
05:09:17LloreanWe don't have a habit of including specific features for hardware mods. That's why, for example, RTC support isn't compiled in for the H100...
05:09:47LloreanEven if the option goes in, you'll still have to enable it in a custom build for H100 since the hardware doesn't natively have USB charging and the option shouldn't be presented to users for a feature their hardware doesn't have.
05:10:03Davide-NYCOf course. But it would be fantastic if it was included in the same way the RTC is.
05:10:25LloreanWell, is there a patch for it?

05:10:33 Nick blkhawk- is now known as blkhawk (
05:11:29Davide-NYCI do not think there is one for the H1x0 since it's hardware charging
05:11:47LloreanI meant, is there a patch to present the option in general that seems acceptable for commit?
05:12:21 Quit miepchen^schla (Connection timed out)
05:12:42Davide-NYCI cannot find one. Doubtful.
05:13:24LloreanWell, that would be the first step to actually seeing such an option. Write a patch for it, so that you can have people actually try the idea and comment on it in reality, rather than conceptually
05:13:58Davide-NYCIs USB_POWER defined for the H1x0? If so this patch might work: FS #6654
05:14:20 Join BHSPitMonkey [0] (n=stephen@unaffiliated/bhspitmonkey)
05:14:29LloreanThe H100 doesn't have USB power.
05:14:37LloreanI certainly wouldn't expect it to be defined.
05:14:45LloreanBut I thought we're on to the option in general, not the H100 specifically, now
05:15:07LloreanAlso, that patch is *described* as nasty
05:15:16LloreanIt's almost certainly not suitable for review yet.
05:15:37LloreanReally, if you want to see the feature at this point it's pretty clear nobody else is working on it, so your best bet is to start working on it yourself.
05:16:02Davide-NYCSure, but as a total neophite programmer I'm much better of modifying extant code
05:16:14LloreanRockbox is extant code.
05:17:04LloreanYou're probably going to need to improve your programming skills if you want something suitable for inclusion, anyway.
05:17:17Davide-NYCmaybe and maybe not
05:17:17LloreanAnd "after I've spent some time reading" is still sooner than "well, nobody's working on it so probably never"
05:17:34LloreanIf you don't want to work on it, that's fine.
05:17:38Lloreannobody's making you.
05:18:03LloreanI'm just saying, at this point it's unlikely to progress until someone puts in some real time on it.
05:18:08Davide-NYCif I get something cobbled together that works it'll show enough good will and effort that some good samaritan code guru will clean it up for submission
05:18:27LloreanThat's very, very unlikely.
05:18:30LloreanAnd a bad assumption to make.
05:18:46Davide-NYCI still suspect you are in fact a robot
05:18:50LloreanIf you cobble something together that requires work to clean up, you're just creating work for someone else.
05:19:06Davide-NYCthat's true
05:19:27LloreanLook at how many cobbled together patches have been closed after sitting for a while with only resyncs and nobody willing to actually work toward commit.
05:26:06UnhelpfulLlorean: would there be any objection, at this point, to dropping further work on the split-out patches, in favor of working on the combination of them together? these branches are starting to make me crazy :/
05:28:13Unhelpfulmaybe you've not seen the FS task, but i started work in essentially the same form that akio had last had it, with a patch that refactored bmp.c, a patch that added the resizer, a patch that added support for resized load to albumart, and another patch for sliding_puzzle
05:28:49LloreanI think a unified patch is probably acceptable.
05:29:09LloreanUsually it's "one patch per feature/fix"
05:29:21LloreanBut I don't think this is something we'd just include part of.
05:30:22Unhelpfuli ended up having to merge the first two, to be able to really work on them at all. the others are still reasonably separate, but my local branches to track changes to each of them separately are getting a bit messy
05:30:33 Quit massiveH ("Leaving")

05:42:38LloreanThey suffer much less.
05:42:54LloreanVideo playback and Gameboy games are, I believe, the worst.
05:43:59_Auron_how well does stuff run on sansa e20x's?
05:44:19LloreanA bit better on the e200v1
05:44:25Lloreanit's basically the same CPU with a smaller screen.
05:44:53LloreanVideo is much better, but gameboy games are more limited by the CPU itself than the screen size (larger screen size quickly increases the CPU use for video playback)
05:45:12_Auron_and emulation is CPU-intensive no matter what
05:45:47LloreanThe various players aren't really designed to be particularly fast. Just 'fast enough' usually.
05:45:56*Tanny watches the demo video on the website and decides its plenty good for him
05:46:04LloreanThe Gigabeat F seems to be a rather striking exception to this, since it's _much_ faster than necessary for what it's original firmware does
05:46:06 Nick fxb is now known as fxb__ (
05:46:12LloreanTanny: What demo video?
05:46:37LloreanThe Elephant's Dream video is for running on your player, for benchmarking and such.
05:47:29Tannythey seem tuned to the individual players
05:47:39LloreanThey're sized to various screen sizes.
05:47:43LloreanSince videos need to be pre-scaled.
05:47:54LloreanBut how they look in terms of speed is not at all indicative of actual performance on the player.
05:48:47Tannythe ipod accepts outside videos, though, right? that I could encode and load on the original firm-ware if I need to watch a tv episode or film?
05:48:57Tannyor is it all drm only stuff?
05:49:07LloreanYou can create your own videos, but that sort of question or discussion really doesn't belong here.
05:49:22LloreanWe don't provide support or information about the original firmware here.

06:05:23woodensoulHello all. I'm looking for someone that's in-the-know on the Sansa Clip port.
06:06:01Lloreanwoodensoul: Did you have a question about something in the wiki or on the thread?
06:07:03woodensoulWell I noticed that there has been some progress made lately, especially sound working and I was curious how usable Rockbox is on the Clip since the wiki still has old info regarding the progress.
06:07:17LloreanIt's not supported yet.
06:07:36LloreanSo please don't ask for usability updates. If you'd like to contribute, we're always looking for more coders and you can help it finish up.
06:07:44LloreanOtherwise, please simply have patience until it's listed as a supported target.
06:08:59woodensoulYeah, I understand that. I was interested in using it as its current state and yes, I have considered contributing by coding (I've learned C in school). Is the USB the main area that needs work?
06:10:08LloreanAs I said, it's not supported. Even if you're interested in using it in it's current state, it's preferred that people not come asking for status updates.
06:10:21 Quit axionix (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
06:10:30LloreanAs to "the main area that needs work", there are many areas of Rockbox that need work.
06:10:48LloreanThere's plenty of general areas that aren't player specific. Optimizations and bugfixes. But yes, USB is one area that's weak more or less globally.
06:12:22woodensoulI gotcha on the status updates policy. Is it OK to ask about the bootloader installation for the clip?
06:12:30 Nick fxb__ is now known as fxb (
06:12:36LloreanBootloader installation is covered on its wiki page.
06:13:46woodensoulWhat do most developers use to write their code? I have Visual Studio 2008, I assume that would be fine as long as I compile with the tools mentioned on the 'for developers' wiki.
06:14:22LloreanAny editor that won't break line endings or convert spaces to tabs will work.
06:14:51Unhelpfulsaving with unix line endings might be an issue for VS2k8?
06:15:16woodensoulI assume that's an option within the program... line endings?
06:15:30scorchedont ask us...\
06:15:37LloreanUnhelpful: I think Notepad doesn't screw them up any more, so hopefully VS doesn't either.
06:16:01scorcheLlorean: really?..that is news to me
06:18:51Lloreanscorche: Maybe I'm thinking Wordpad.
06:19:20LloreanEither way, it's Microsoft stuff that doesn't mess up line endings.
06:19:35Unhelpfulwordpad has multiple text format options on save
06:19:53woodensoulI'm confused on this line in the wiki: "/rbutil/mkamsboot contains a tool that patches the Sandisk firmware with a compressed copy of a rockbox bootloader.
06:20:22woodensoulSo that isn't incorporated in the GUI of Rockbox Utility?
06:20:38LloreanIt's _not released_ on those players yet.
06:20:45LloreanIt's still primarily developer tools.
06:21:37woodensoulso how to use those tools are in the developers wiki?

06:29:38woodensoulThe "appropriate files" is the sansa firmware file, yes?
06:30:07saratogawoodensoul: yes you'll need a copy of the clip firmware (from sandisk)
06:30:17saratogaand the rockbox bootloader (compiled by you)
06:30:24LloreanIt says this pretty clearly.
06:30:34Llorean"a copy of the Sandisk firmware bin file (download from Sandisk's website), a copy of rockbox's bootloader"
06:31:08saratogai intentionally didn't give the actual command to discourage people who have no idea what they're doing from trying this
06:31:11woodensoulOK, I understand now that the bootloader is what needs to be compiled before using it to patch the sansa firmware.
06:31:21saratogai assumed anyone who wouldn't brick their player would understand how to run a unix command

09:09:09dionoeaSome people were asking for a few extra tags in the features request forum if i remember correctly
09:09:17LloreanIt seems there was a pretty decent binary size change for it.
09:09:31dionoeaoh, I didn't check that before commiting
09:10:08LloreanWhy'd you commit it now (right before the feature freeze, without having looked at it for months?)

09:11:23dionoeaI was just cleaning up my tree and figured that I could commit this.
09:11:24amiconn_Llorean: Settings can change without (completely) leaving the wps, by using the quickscreen
09:11:35Lloreanamiconn_: You still leave the WPS to access the quickscreen.
09:12:48LloreanBut I'm just curious if we want this, or if we want explicit tags. It seems if we're going to use this, we should clean up as many redundant tags as possible if we can reclaim any size that way.
09:13:02amiconn_I agree
09:14:49Zagordionoea: have you seen that your commit broke player?
09:15:04dionoeayeah, and I have a patch for it but can't commit it since I'm at work
09:15:19dionoeabasically you have to move the function implementation out of an ifdef bitmap
09:15:35LloreanThe volume tag at least has some special behaviour (in regard to >0 volume levels) that probably mean it's impossible to replace it with this any-tag, but I'm sure at least a few others can be.
09:17:09dionoeaLlorean: that could be emulated with a simple option to this new tag (but i'm not sure that it'd be a good idea to replace everything with it though)

09:24:32pixelmawhat does it "give back" when not used as conditional? If I remember correctly, the usual repeat and shuffle tags (also some other, like virtual LED etc.) have some one letter defaults when not used as a condiotionsl (shuffle shows an "s" etc.), it is mentioned on the CustomWPS page. I doubt this functionality is used often, but it's there currently...

09:25:51amiconn_Iiuc you can always emulate this by using it as a conditional, and placing the letters into the alternatives

10:59:43kugelJdGordon: a bit more precise if possible. "Everyone agrees it's bad" is hardly something you can base something upon
11:00:02scorcheit is just a warning..
11:00:09B4gderpondlife: it's only a warning at this point, let's see if he comes around soon and we can fix it
11:00:22kugelI've noticed that everyone agreed that it's bad by myself
11:00:58pondlifeI was more thinking that other code might be corrupted on his machine, but not generating warnings/errors - that would be unpleasant, if unlikely.
11:01:07pondlifee.g. a missing source line or 2
11:01:15B4gderah right
11:01:30pondlifeUntil we know for sure
11:02:19JdGordonkugel: the accepted solution is to rework the font cache so it can store more than 1 font in a single buffer...
11:02:39JdGordonthe rejection was based on that.. not on the apps level usage
11:06:20kugelI also was curious about dynamically alocating the memory (like tagcache etc), so multiple fonts are supported, but the memory wouldn't be wasted if you only use 1 font
11:07:17JdGordonwell yeah thats a possible stand is option
11:07:44JdGordonbut then causes problems when you want a theme which wants 3 fonts but only allocated pace for 2
11:08:06JdGordonpixelma: wanna have a look @ 2 manual patches?
11:08:29JdGordon9134 and 9524
11:08:33kugelI thought you allocate so many memory how you need to fit all requested fonts
11:08:41ZagorJdGordon: "this wps requires a reboot before functioning fully"
11:08:58Zagorwindows all over again
11:09:02Lloreankugel: We already don't allocate enough memory to fit every font.
11:09:05kugelthat would potentially involve stopping playback while changing font of course
11:09:24LloreanWe have a glypchache where we cache a certain amount of the most recently used characters.
11:10:21LloreanThis is why sometimes even with Database enabled you'll get disk spinups while browsing. The requirement for a character that isn't in the cache.
11:10:47LloreanI believe the idea with multifont is that it needs to effectively use the glyph cache for dealing with multiple fonts of varying sizes.
11:12:59kugelbut without using multiple glyph cache (one for each font) AND without raising the glyph cache size?
11:13:23Lloreankugel: The glyph cache size can be discussed separately.

11:32:28JdGordongoing back to the setting wps tag from a while ago... I have no problem keeping old (now "redundant") tags for simplicity
11:33:42LloreanJdGordon: I think we'd be better off choosing "settings get explicit tags" or "all pure setting tags are used through the generic tag'
11:34:19LloreanI think it's actually simpler if we have less special cases rather than mixing it. It means current WPS authors have to learn a few new things, but it won't take them long.

11:36:51LloreanI don't say it's necessarily a rush that this be done (all the included WPSes would need to be updated, since I think they all use at least one redundant tag) but it may be one of those things to keep in mind when introducing the new theme site (or possibly mark the tags on the wiki page in red as 'old and scheduled for removal' or similar if we do decide we don't need them)

16:34:57***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
16:36:16n1syes, tuner_init gets called from radio_init which is called from init() which is the first thing called in apps on startup, that is before tuner_power is called so the fm chip is not even powered when i try to read :/
16:37:03funmanI believe radio_init() needs to be called after tuner_power() then
16:37:22n1salso you are right, the gpio interrupts ar enot needed for now
16:37:24*funman masters obviousness
16:38:28funmanalso write_bytes[] miss 2 registers (0x6 & 0x7)
16:39:54n1syes, i only made it contain the ones we actually change
16:40:12funmanhm but in register 0x7 there is a bit to enable the oscillator
16:40:51n1salso since this init is only called once i think itäs better to enable/disable the chip with tuner_set
16:41:21J-23did anybody remove Mastrojani's post in v2 thread?

16:42:55funmanI think RADIO_SLEEP isn't used prior to other commands, but I didn't check
16:43:47n1stuner_set(RADIO_SLEEP, 0); is the first command sent to the tuner in radio.c:radio_start

18:23:45jhMikeSit should expect to have to power up the chip to check. see the sanyo code.

18:26:02jhMikeSit shouldn't be checked except once. the chip will get repowered repeatedly for that when I'm pretty sure the hardware won't change thereafter.
18:26:27n1sah, yes, that driver does indeed power it up before checking

18:30:37kkurbjunjhMikeS: crt0.s masks the interupts and copies the firmware to a safe location (0x31000000) and reboots if there is not enough space starting from 0x30000000, the bootloader loads the main firmware at 0x31000000 and crt0.s takes care of copying it to 0x30000000 and enabling the mmu
18:31:14kkurbjunI set it up so that the boorloader runs under the same conditions as the main firmware
18:31:38kkurbjunso assuming that the thread stuff is not ifdefed you should be able to run threads too
18:32:06jhMikeSkkurbjun: so then irq_handler for the bootloader will definitely not be overwritten (affirmation please :)
18:32:18jhMikeSnot the function but the vector
18:32:34jhMikeSor both...hehe
18:34:52jhMikeSNo MMU for the bootloader? How are the vectors at 0x00000000 reached?
18:35:02***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
18:35:59kkurbjuneverything will be copied assuming that you are booting from the OF instead of flash and then it will be rebooted from 0x31000000 and then copied again to 0x30000000 and restarted once more, so the vectors for both the bootloader and main firmware will be in the proper location (0x30000000/0x0), the bootloader doesn't overwrite the vectors when it's loading the main firmware, the main firmware takes care of setting up it's vector loc
18:36:08kkurbjunthere is an mmu in the bootloader
18:36:19kkurbjunI was just using the physical locations rather than the virtual
18:36:40kkurbjunsince the MMU is restarted after the code reaches 0x30000000
18:36:49kkurbjunand then everything is mapped to 0x0

18:38:16amiconn_That sounds like a lot of copying
18:38:20kkurbjunthe both the main firmware and the bootloader are linked to 0x0 so after crt0.s is all done it jumps to main running from some offset starting at 0x0
18:38:41kkurbjunamiconn it doesn't do most of the copying if everything is at 0x31000000
18:39:03kkurbjunit only does one copy then to 0x30000000
18:39:39kkurbjunthe other copies are checks for running from flash and for the OF bootcode loading our FWIMG01.DAT

18:40:37 Quit Nibbl (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
18:41:05kkurbjunits also setup this way so that you could use the main build in place of FWIMG01.DAT or you could run the main build from flash without the bootloader
18:42:09kkurbjunthe main build from flash I have tested and it works fine, I havn't tested the FWIMG01 replacement since I havn't had an incentive, but it should work
18:43:14kkurbjunworst case it is two copies in either situation, if you count the OF loader it would be 3 copies in that case
18:43:52kkurbjunbut it allows it to work without any defines to tell the code that you are building a flash build or a OF bootloader build

18:49:27kkurbjunjhMikeS: technically the bootloader is started twice when you use FWIMG01.DAT, but it only runs a few lines of code and then copies. Yeah running from flash is a bit faster too, it starts in about 5 seconds versus the 10 I counted before

19:50:48bertrikfunman, I think both the radio and the RTC in the as3525 need a 32 kHz and they both have their own oscillator. AFAIK you can only enable oscillator to drive the crystal. I found some code in the clip OF that enables the radio oscillator.

23:23:45bertrikn1s, I'm running out of ideas why the si4700 won't work on the clip

23:31:40Hostileso is the current status of rockbox on the clip kind of bootloader only right now?
23:31:48Hostilesandisk clip*
23:32:26LloreanHostile: It's in-development. Any updates are contained in the forum thread, the official Rockbox changelog, and the wiki pages associated with the player.
23:33:20Hostileokay. its just its the same forum thread for all sandisk v2 models, so its sifting through 30 pages of fuze and c200 talk to find a few tidbits about the clip

23:36:06LloreanWell, if you aren't going to be working on it, you can just wait until it's officially supported.
23:36:18LloreanIf you are going to be working on it, you need to sort through most of it anyway since there's a lot of overlap.
23:37:08jhMikeSkkurbjun: (more for logs) nvm, got to work.

23:42:07n1sbertrik: can you seek and does RSSI vary in a sensible way? (IIRC this did not work for me before the 32kHz clock was supplied to the tuner)
23:42:24saratogaBagder: did you see my email to the SVN list?
23:42:52Bagderhe, I just responded to it too
23:43:27bertrikn1s, I'm now trying to "make it work" but not very systematically
23:43:43saratogaah good timing
23:43:55n1sbertrik: do you know what domonoky did to get it to work on the m200?
23:44:00Lloreansaratoga: I agree with Bagder regarding your email.
23:44:00saratogawell if he gets his account soon, we can make the 3.1 deadline
23:44:19bertrikn1s domonoky is working with a completely different radio chip
23:44:49n1sah, didn't know that
23:44:50bertrikRSSI is not communicated over the radio API, is it? how did you debug this?
23:45:15n1si just read all the regs over i2c and printed them in a loop
23:46:10bertrikn1s, how? do you just print them right over the other screen contents?
23:46:17LambdaCalculus37bertrik: Do you remember the FS# for funman's audio buffering patch?
23:46:44n1sbertrik: i just hacked it into one of the debug screens
23:46:58bertrikFS #9332 you mean? (that's nicop's patch by the way)
23:47:29n1son the beast's huge lcd printing them all was no problem but most are not so interesting
23:48:02LambdaCalculus37bertrik: That's the one; sorry I got confused. :)
23:49:20*LambdaCalculus37 tries out FS #9609
23:49:32bertrikn1s, what's a typical symptom of not having the 32 kHz clock?
23:50:41 Quit massiveH ("Leaving")
23:50:47n1sbertrik: i think seeking never found any stations and that RSSI didn't change much, it should be pretty obviously higher when on a station than between

23:54:02n1sbertrik: i tried to include register 6 and 7 in write_bytes earlier today but when i did that i got no sound on the beast, i see that you are doing that...
23:55:43n1soh and the init function is wrong too, i messed it up and forgot about the different starting points of read and write , fixed in my newest patch but it still has the problem when writing to those 2 registers
23:57:08n1sand you need to add si4700_init() to the TUNER_TYPE_CASE thing in tuner.c or the init function is never called
