#rockbox log for 2009-06-30

00:00:07kugelit does?
00:00:23saratogawe had this happen before due to alignment issues, where random changes in the code would fix or break the problem between builds
00:00:23kugelthat doesn't make sense though, it should be strafing ;(
00:00:33kugelor turning at least
00:01:19kugelfunman: if you assign a drive name in windows, linux will recognize it
00:01:47funmansaratoga: yeah that's why I think about alignement and looked at that sd_select_banjk
00:02:03funmanunfortunately i have never seen fs corruption on my fuze since fs#10048 was committed
00:06:42kugelwhy don't we define NEED_CACHE_ALIGN btw=
00:06:46kugel?*
00:07:23 Quit DarkDefender ("Leaving")
00:07:41funmanwhy would we ?
00:08:01funmanI see that some code depends on it in mpegplayer for example, and I didn't understand what this code did
00:10:31saratogais there a windows binary of mkamsboot?
00:12:03LloreanIt sounds like 3.3 may be pretty broken. There seem to be an awful lot of bug reports from people coming from 3.2 relative to what I remember from 3.1->3.2
00:14:56funmansaratoga: all 1.0 binaries were removed, i can give you a binary if you wish
00:15:17saratogait still lacks the md5 check right?
00:15:28funmanSVN has the check

00:18:38funmansaratoga: me
00:20:34funmansaratoga: kugel is working on mkamsboot, and i would like to check if everything is allright before we release mkamsboot again
00:20:35kugelFlynDice: before the while loop?
00:20:47saratogasounds good

00:21:11FlynDicekugel: yes right before the while loop
00:22:16funmanare released binaries packed with upx ? that can save a bit of bandwidth/server storage

00:26:00kugelFlynDice: seems good, I added an entry to the hw info debug page and it shows the expected values

00:31:33|niko|chmod: changing permissions of `.rockbox/': Read-only file system
00:31:43|niko|I ran that as root, and it is vfat and clearly mounted as rw
00:31:56|niko|I can copy stuff to and from the filesystem, just not the .rockbox dir
00:32:11rasher|niko|: err, cat /proc/mounts

00:32:39funman|niko|: and verify the filesystem before anything
00:32:40JdGordon|kugel: do you want to comment on the viewportmanager stuff?
00:32:50funman|niko|: "ro" clearly shows readonly
00:32:51*JdGordon| is hoping it didnt get drowned out by the current thread
00:33:01rasher|niko|: what funman said
00:33:10|niko|Why does the mount command show:
00:33:17|niko|this: /dev/sdf2 on /mnt/ipod type vfat (rw)
00:33:17rasher|niko|: on read/write errors, it will get remounted read-only

00:45:09saratogawhat is your question
00:45:36ForumJunkieWell, I can't patch it, but when I go to make zip
00:45:44ForumJunkieIt gives me the simple source code unedited.
00:46:06saratogaare you asking how to patch?
00:46:08ForumJunkieWhen I go to patch it, it prompts me to patch two files.
00:46:10ForumJunkieNo.
00:46:15ForumJunkieI know how to do that, I did it before.

01:11:55kugelI really can't understand that those confused happy users, which don't even contribute the features in question (or at all), are the reason we can't implement things we'd like to see
01:12:19notlisteningrasher, I want to include a "?" in a command line from the configure script is there a trick to do that?
01:12:27 Quit linuxstb (Remote closed the connection)
01:12:33Mikachunotlistening: \?
01:12:40Mikachuor indeed "?"
01:12:51rashernotlistening: Try escaping it I guess. It's hard to tell without more specifics
01:12:57pixelmakugel: what if I tell you that I wouldn't want it? ... ;)
01:13:08kugelthat's another thing
01:13:27Mikachukugel: if you want to develop things only you yourself use, feel free?
01:13:34Mikachuno point in committing them then either
01:14:08kugelthat's not practical in the long term, I tried it (before I could commit) :P

01:32:54lilltigerI just reformated both my player and the microSD, readded the rockbox firmware and the .rockbox folder. I also added a few songs to the microSD card. But now the microSD wont show up in rockbox at all, and when I tried to build an database it found 388 items then seems to freeze.

01:34:30kugelprobably not
01:34:40rasherlilltiger: Try removing half the files, then re-initializing. If it works, try with the other. Keep halfing the collection until you figure out which file causes the freeze.
01:34:59*JdGordon| *REALLY* hates that solution
01:35:04kugelpossibly broken tags or something
01:35:13JdGordon|can someone just put a damn logger in the database builder pleasE?
01:35:15MikachuJdGordon|: it's a hell of a lot better than trying them one at a time :P
01:35:40lilltigerHillshum: fuze
01:36:17kugelwhat revision are you running?
01:36:29rasherJdGordon|: I don't even understand why it'd be so difficult. Just keep track of the last opened file. It doesn't usually crash Rockbox, does it?
01:36:53Mikachuor just display the currently processing file on screen, that way you have plenty of time to write it down when it dies :)
01:36:56JdGordon|yeah, it just needs someone to do it
01:37:10Mikachu(i guess optionally, or it would slow it down a bit)
01:37:19Mikachu(or can't run in the background)
01:37:29linuxstbDo we have such bugs though? i.e. do people end up identifying a specific troublesome file?
01:37:47rasherlinuxstb: They don't, because it's too much work..
01:38:04Mikachuyou just need to try ~8 times
01:38:09kugelevery time I heard of such an issue it turned out to be broken tags
01:38:31linuxstbkugel: Then we need to get these people to post bug reports...
01:38:32Mikachuyou can optimize the process a bit over what rasher said
01:38:39Mikachutry one half, if that works, try _half_ of the other half
01:38:45Mikachuyou already know all of the other half will crash
01:38:56kugellinuxstb: We have people reporting bugs based on broken tags
01:39:02linuxstbdatabase.ignore should help - no copying of files, just moving them around...
01:39:19kugelonce the tag is identified, it's closed as not a bug or something
01:39:24rasherThis is all too much work for someone who just wants the Database working
01:39:35Hillshumlilltiger: this is to be expected on a Fuze
01:39:40Mikachuit's obviously a bug if it hangs the scanning
01:39:41rasherkugel: seriously?
01:39:42linuxstbkugel: Well, that's wrong...
01:39:43kugelHillshum: not really
01:39:56kugelI didn't do it myself, but I've seen it
01:40:02kugelat least once
01:40:09Hillshumkugel: Oh?
01:40:31lilltigerkugel: is rockbox picky on special characters in tags?
01:40:56kugelwe are trying to iron out the last serious issues to get the fuze supported, today we've had a commit which should resolve some or even all storage problems
01:41:11rasherkugel: if you can find such a closed bug, it should be re-opened
01:41:14kugellilltiger: possibly, I don't know exactly
01:41:24rasherA crash or hang is *always* a Rockbox bug, no matter how broken the tags are

01:43:21 Quit robin0800 ("Leaving")
01:44:53lilltigerr21540-090628 is the revision
01:46:01lilltigerand adding a few albums enabled rockbox to build the database, see like it stalls/fails to finish the database building when there is no music avaible
01:46:08kugelshould be new enough
01:46:45lilltigerBut i wonder why it cant see the microSD any longer
01:46:51kugelyea, the database fails if there's no music at all. weird bug
01:47:11kugelI don't know
01:47:28kugelcan you compile?
01:47:47lilltigeryes
01:49:13kugelyou could try to add some mci_delay() in sd_init_card() in firmware/targe/arm/as3525/ata_sd_as3525.c
01:49:29kugellike where the other 4 are or somewhere else
01:49:50kugelwe've been adding delays there over the time, some cards just don't work
01:50:16 Part toffe82
01:50:21lilltigerit workt fine before the format, could i have formated it to an fat version that rockbox disslikes?
01:50:55kugelwhat revision have been running before?
01:50:56kugelthe same?
01:51:03lilltigeryes the same
01:51:14kugelthat's weird then
01:51:52rasherHow did you format the card?
01:52:05rasherMore to the point, did you partition the card?
01:52:26lilltigerrasher: yes I did partion it using fdisk
01:52:39kugelfdisk?
01:52:42rasherI'm not sure that's smart
01:52:56rasherDoes rockbox even look at partitions on sd cards?
01:53:00kugelisn't that mkfs' job?
01:53:06lilltigerkugel: fdisk is an linux tool for partition managment
01:53:26rasherkugel: mkfs makes the filesystem, fdisk makes the partitions
01:53:30kugelrasher: probably only at the first one, we need to poke gevaerts to finish off his multivolume work
01:53:43lilltigerkugel: mkfs just formats the drive dosent repartion it
01:53:54Mikachumultivolume works fine on my nano, fwiw :)
01:53:56rasherlilltiger: try doing the mkfs on the whole disk
01:53:57kugelyou don't need to repartion it
01:54:32kugelMikachu: I mean multi as in more than 1 or 2 volumes
01:54:33lilltigerhaha
01:54:35lilltigeroh!
01:54:59lilltigeri wonder what the OF of sansa does, strange that it found it
01:55:08Mikachuokay
01:55:20kugelthe OF does magic w.r.t. to filesystems
01:55:25lilltigeri accidently repartioned it to an Linux partition
01:55:25JdGordon|Mikachu: you've enabled multivolume on your nano?
01:55:32JdGordon|wtf for?
01:55:42MikachuJdGordon|: yes, i made a 32MB partition in the space where the OF used to put it's hibernation image
01:55:46krazykithow do you accidentally manage that?
01:56:08Hillshumlilltiger: mkdosfs /path/to/device
01:57:17lilltigerkrazykit: fdisk sts it by default and i forgott to override the default
01:57:56lilltigersets, -f
01:58:31lilltigerand now rockbox finds the microSD
01:59:05kugelgood thing you didn't use fdisk for the internal storage?
01:59:14kugelalso I think that's recoverable

02:03:57lilltigerI just triggered the "update database" to see if it adds the 3 albums i have on the microSD, it said that updating started in the background, but now it has elapsed several minutes and I dont see any information of it's progress.

11:19:15Grahackthanks linuxstb and kugel, I already knew that. Sorry for not being clear. The creator of the Lua plugin managed to expose BUTTON_* constants to Lua, I managed to use bitwise operations on this constants (using rb.buttons.*) but BUTTON_REL and BUTTON_REPEAT are not automaticly created by the Lua plugin. I have to add manually those codes: rb.buttons.REL = 0x02000000 and rb.buttons.REPEAT = 0x04000000 that I get on my iPod. My questio

11:42:15kugelI'm wondering why we make lua scripts so target dependant
11:43:30kugelCan't there be a way to expose BUTTON_TOUCHSCREEN so that it's possible to have runtime-detection of touchscreen? I'm not really a fan of a scripting language which only runs on 1 target

12:33:55Tornehrm
12:34:09Torneok, the TFAT stuff needs atomic sector writes, that's why it needs a magical driver
12:34:19*GodEater was just going to say that
12:34:21Tornewhat is the storage on the beast?
12:34:27GodEaterATA disk
12:34:34Torneoh, that's ok then :)
12:34:40Torneata writes are already expected to be atomic generally
12:34:52GodEaterunless someone's done a CF mod to one I'm unaware of
12:34:58TorneCF should be atomic too really
12:35:01GodEaterbut that'll still be over an ATA interface I expect
12:35:02Torneand if not there's nothing we can do about it
12:35:07GodEaterindeed
12:36:07Torneso yah, using fat1 as a temp copy to do versioned objects is not too had
12:36:16Tornebut i'm somewhat puzzled about this whole directory claim
12:36:46Tornethis is pretty different to what our rugged fat system does :)
12:36:53 Quit s1mple_m4n_ ("Ex-Chat")
12:37:03TorneTFAT avoids the need for the boot time disk scan on unclean unmount
12:37:19GodEaterthat would appear to be the idea, yes
12:38:48Tornebut evidently they've lost 100% interoperability somewhere, with htis directory issue
12:39:26GodEaterThis one is peculiar too : "If a directory is created on the removable media using a Windows desktop OS, and then used with TFAT in Windows Embedded CE, operations on files in that directory may not be transaction-safe."
12:40:45Torneyah, that's what i meant
12:41:02Tornethat seems really odd, nothing else in the description implies directories ar ehandled differently
12:41:23 Quit AndyI (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
12:41:25Tornei was assuming they update directory entries by rewriting hte entire cluster containing the entry being modified to a new location and rewiring fat1 to point there
12:41:31Tornethen committing it to fat0 when it's done
12:41:42Tornebut that wouldn't need any particular starting layout on disk to work
12:41:56GodEaterit says something like that further up doesn't it ?
12:42:07GodEaterbut for modifiying files, not directories
12:42:12Tornethat's how it journals file updates i fyou turn that on, yes
12:42:19Torneand directories in FAT are no different to files :)
12:42:25Torneas far as cluster allocation/etc goes
12:42:47GodEaterwe should write our current assumptions down in the wiki I think
12:42:52GodEaterif there isn't a TFAT page already
12:42:59Torneprobably :)
12:43:55GodEaterit's a shame linuxstb already installed Rockbox on it actually
12:44:03GodEaterI wonder if he backed up the partition table
12:44:06GodEaterthat's peculiar too
12:44:19Torneit needs *something* on it to be able to dump anything useful, though, no? :)
12:46:04GodEateryes
12:46:29GodEaterbut just installing the RB bootloader doesn't fiddle with the partition table
12:46:30Tornewell anyway the first step fr me is getting the thing to power on at all
12:46:33GodEaterso you could have dumped that
12:46:40GodEaterwell yes, there is that :)
12:46:41Torneand being able to run a build of RB on it :)
12:46:58GodEaterI suspect it already has one of those on it
12:47:13GodEaterproposal for Wiki page name = TfatDetails
12:47:16GodEateranyone other offers ?
12:48:15Torneyah, but i mean 'an arbitrary build'
12:48:18Tornei.e. one i've compiled with changes :)
12:48:48GodEatersure
12:49:11Tornei'm sure someone somewhere has a beast that's not been touched, anyway
12:49:25Tornei guess they don't have a convenient restore process like the ipod? :)
12:49:40GodEaternot nearly as convenient no
12:49:46GodEaterbut it's not awful
12:49:54GodEaterI only know of one dev who managed to brick one

15:52:23lilltigerTorne: two tables, the OF dosent seem to create any proper partition at all with the latest firmware
15:52:36Tornetwo copies of the FAT is normal for most disks
15:52:41Tornethey are identical
15:52:50Tornehas nothing to do with handling more files
15:53:10Tornesome formatting tools only bother to create one copy to save space
15:53:23lilltigerhttp://privatepaste.com/12Qh8K1DwC
15:53:51TorneYah. That's a corrupt filesystem.
15:54:10TorneIf the two copies of the FAT are different the FS is corrupt, fsck is asking which one to trust.
15:54:31Torneyou probably lost power during a write or similar :)
15:54:39lilltigerno write went perfect
15:54:52Tornewell the filesystem is corrupt now :)
15:54:58Torneso *something* has gone wrong at some point
15:55:09lilltigerand that happend yesterday as well, so i reformated and recopied (other files) and the same thing happend
15:55:23lilltigerand in the OF it's all working well

15:55:35Torneyah, the FATs being different doesn't make the disk unusable or anything
15:55:45Tornein the DOS era chkdsk didn't even bother to check if they were the same
15:55:54lilltigerok
15:55:54Torne99.99% of software will just use the first copy, always
15:56:06Torneyou're supposed to write to both copies when you change anything
15:56:12Tornebut nothing requires you to actually read the second copy.
15:56:15Torneonly filesystem checking tools do.
15:56:43Tornebut it's still FS corruption
15:57:16lilltigery-day when this also happend, i told it to use the first one, but that changed nothing except for the output from fdisk, the files still howed up curopted in rockbox but correct in OF
15:57:48Tornei would be surprised if rockbox bothers to read the second fat either
15:57:58Torneso it should really work in either firmware :)
15:58:07Tornebut it's still corrupt, so all bets are off
15:58:38lilltigerstrange that it starts getting corrupt at the same breakpoint again

16:00:45Tornewhich is not impossible (beast does it for complicated reasons, but only temporarily)
16:00:50lilltigerTorne: wich is what i suspected
16:00:54Tornebut seems unlikely, because it will make chkdsk and similar fall over
16:01:04Tornewhich is not a good idea for players that expose their contents via MSC
16:02:07Tornethe transaction system the beast has is a good reason, but even that only does it temporarily and finished writes are supposed to have the FATs being identical again.
16:02:21Torneso it's more likely something going wrong. :)
16:02:22lilltigerTorne: I updated to the latest OF and formated the disk, after that fdisk says that there is no partitio on the drive
16:02:37Tornewell, maybe there isn't
16:03:21Tornei know nothing about the fuze specifically, btw, but generally you aren't required to have a partition table on a MSC device
16:03:50lilltigerTorne: and the info about the F says that it needed to be reformated to allow for higer file count. So I suspect that they create a second FT tale to handle alot of files but this is just a guess
16:03:54lilltigerOF..

16:04:15Torneit almost certainly had two FATs before
16:04:21Torneit's very rare to have any number other than two
16:04:31lilltigerok
16:04:50Torneit may have reformatted with a different cluster size, or similar
16:05:01Tornehard to say without comparing the BPB before and after
16:05:20Tornebut the number of FATs has nothing to do with how many files you cna fit: the FAT refers to the space on the device, not the files
16:05:32Tornein fact having more copies of the FAT takes up more space and thus reduces the usable size
16:06:47 Quit Gigawatts (Client Quit)

16:08:41lilltigerno
16:09:04lilltigerIm using the OF fr it
16:09:46lilltigerso I have a hard time to relize why it gets corrupted and only rockbox seems to care about the corruption
16:10:39 Nick zitune[afk] is now known as zitune (n=zitune@bearstech/zitune)
16:11:25Tornerockbox doesn't read the second fat, though we do update it in sync with the first one
16:11:49Tornewhich is normal behaviour (same as dos/windows/linux)
16:12:04Torneso if rockbox thinks it's corrupt then there must be something else wrong as wel :)
16:12:20lilltigerand when i trasfered music to the player I did it in chunks of 2GB, and it's only the last 2GB of files that shows the corruption in rockbox (while the are fine both in OF and when connected to the usb in the OF)
16:12:35Torneyou're doing this over MSC?
16:12:58Tornei dunno, anyway. there's a million and one reasons for filesystems to get corrupted ;)

16:18:21lilltigerat least i think it was :) ill try to update then
16:18:45notlisteningplus it was recommended to do a full format first
16:19:51notlisteningthis is leave the fs in a state where it will report curroption but running a disk check on it should sort that out then go for rockbox on it again and there should be not more issues
16:20:46notlisteningand you may want to give in internal disk a label/name again as i find that useful
16:21:35lilltigernotlistening: Should I reformat it from within the player or using the linux tools for it?

16:42:20lilltigerTorne: but why is it still corrupt when I just formated it
16:42:32Tornei would guess that whatever you formatted it with got it wrong :)
16:42:35lilltigerTorne: do i need to do something more then format it?
16:42:40Tornenope
16:42:46Torneyou formatted it with the OF?
16:42:49Torneand then did nothing else?
16:42:50lilltigeryes
16:43:13notlisteninglilltiger, the OF makes what are seen to be corruptions
16:43:14Tornethen the OF's format tool is either intentionally doing some obscure nonstandard thing that we don't know about (and will probably break on all dos/windows/linux machines regardless of rockbox)
16:43:19Torneor the OF's format tool is broken

17:01:45Torneit sounds like their format code is just busted then

18:29:27lilltigerI implemented Lua into an game a few years back, after that I started to disslike anything that has with Lua to do, imo phyton is superior
18:29:43kugelmcuelenaere: better than nothing, if we can get lua not be target dependant this way (not that everything works on all targets, but at least have some basic handling when something doesn't work)
18:29:53Tornepython is also much, much bigger :)
18:29:57mcuelenaerekugel: why use exceptions for that?
18:30:08mcuelenaerelilltiger: try implementing Python for Rockbox then ;)
18:30:13lilltigerTorne: indeed
18:30:30Tornemcuelenaere: it owuldn't be very difficult, really :)
18:30:35Tornemcuelenaere: but it'd have to steal the audio buffer ;)
18:30:45Torne(and you'd need to provide it with a malloc())
18:30:47kugelit seems logical to me, but if you have a better idea
18:30:48mcuelenaereTorne: Lua does that now too (if it runs out of memory)
18:31:06kugeland it has a malloc() :)
18:31:09mcuelenaereright
18:31:10Torneyah, but my minimal build of python on ARM needs several kb of heap just to make it to the interpreter prompt with no modules loaded
18:31:13Torneer
18:31:15Torneseveral hundred kb
18:31:34mcuelenaerethere are targets with >=16MB RAM ;)
18:31:47Torneyah, i just mean it would *always* need to steal the buffer :)
18:32:28mcuelenaerenot if you upgrade the plugin buffer :)

18:33:51Torneand you need about 1.1MB just for .text/.data/.bss of the interpreter
18:33:58Torne:)
18:34:18Torneand this is with no builtins at all even the ones that are normally supposed to be mandatory (zipimport, warnings, etc)
18:34:42mcuelenaerehmm I suppose plugins need some kind of dynamically linking infrastructure?
18:34:54Tornenot really
18:35:11Tornebuiltin modules and extensoin modules are the same thing really :)
18:35:19Torneyou cna compile them into the interpreter instead of having them as .so if you want
18:35:37lilltigerstorage space isent much of an issue i guess, but ram needs is probly to high for phyton
18:35:56Torneso, yah. there's no particular reason why not other than the fact that it would be memory hungry and even slower than lua :)
18:36:37Tornesince nobody has written any cool and exciting lua scripts for rockbox yet i think it's a bit premature to go for an even vaster embedded language
18:36:50Torneif people use lua for interesting things and find it limiting then maybe it's worth it ;)
18:37:21mcuelenaereI think exporting the Rockbox API is probably the hardest part currently limiting Lua

20:22:14gevaertsdo we really need the complexity? I think that if database.unignore support is thought to be too expensive, we should just drop it and only keep database.ignore
20:22:33kugelI'd be happy with it too
20:22:41rasherPeople just need to be more careful about where they place .ignore files (and use more of them)

20:24:23*gevaerts proposes a poll on the forums :)
20:24:32AlexPI don't use the database so don't really care either way, but without unignore there would be no way to ignore a top level but not a sub dir right?
20:24:46kugelput ignore into the subdirs

20:28:40gevaertsThe only thing I'm not sure about is how to handle "roots" that are within eachother

20:46:12kugelAlexP: It works on my fuze. I didn't test 3.3 on it though
20:46:24kugelI can't really imagine what would break the controls
20:46:29AlexPkugel: I haven't tried it on anything - will do in a bit
20:46:42JdGordon|gevaerts: yeah but thats a general playlist problem... it should try getting the next playlist (whatever it is) on the last low buffer...
20:47:13bertrikfm radio volume control on my clip with r21464 works fine
20:47:20gevaertsJdGordon|: somehow I think that doing this at playlist generation time will work better
20:47:35gevaertsI'm not sure though
20:47:40JdGordon|yes, but that doesnt happen ever untill the playlist finishes
20:47:48kugelmy e200 doesn't have a radio so I can't test
20:48:01JdGordon|you mean add a heap of folders onto the playlist at the start of creation?
20:48:17kugelJdGordon|: I rather think it was gevaerts change to make ascii sort default, he was so unsure if he managed it :)
20:48:51LloreanJdGordon|, gevaerts: Isn't the m3u format supposed to support folders
20:48:57gevaertsJdGordon|: yes. The same way that "insert shuffled" works now
20:49:05LloreanLike if a line appears in it that's just a folder name, it should play the whole content of the folder.
20:49:11JdGordon|Llorean: I dunno, maybe
20:49:16JdGordon|but still how many would you add?
20:49:21JdGordon|5? 10?
20:49:24JdGordon|every folder?
20:49:38LloreanSo we could have "Insert Folders Shuffled" and "Insert Folders" as options, then if Shuffle is Off you get what you're looking for
20:49:42LloreanFOlders shuffled then played in order.
20:49:49LloreanIf we supported that aspect of M3U that is
20:49:56gevaertsWhat I'd like is just all my music, shuffled, but with albums together in the right order
20:50:09***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
20:50:18LloreanThere's no reason not to insert every folder within the folder the user is "Inserting" - random folder advance more or less doesn't care how many folders are there either, it just keeps going.
20:50:31Lloreangevaerts: Which is basically what I just described, if your albums are individual folders.
20:50:52LloreanYou can have a playlist of albums, instead of a playlist of songs, and shuffle it.
20:51:06JdGordon|if you do that then the next dir doesnt work
20:51:21JdGordon|also you would have to recreate the entire playlist when you add/remove files
20:51:28gevaertsCurrently random folder advance is the way to do that, but (a) it's not good for battery life, and (b) it somewhat interferes with bootmark on stop and recent bookmarks (which I have for spoken material), in that you get a bookmark per album
20:51:40JdGordon|but I agree that the playlist would be better created while music is still playing
20:51:52bertrikkugel, I'm also seeing the problem of no fmradio after boot on my clip, it seems the frequency is set, but the radio hasn't tuned to it
20:52:21 Quit Hillshum (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
20:52:23PaulJam_Llorean: but the current random folder method has the advantage that you can exclude folders and also give certain folders a higher chance of being played, this wouldn't be possible with just inserting your whole music directory.
20:52:30kugelmaybe si4700_init() isn't doing correctly?
20:52:37gevaertsJdGordon|: maybe a tsr plugin could do this. Watch the playlist and the buffer, and if the playlist gets too short add bits to it
20:52:57JdGordon|we dont really do tsr plugins...

20:53:17JdGordon|but yeah. that might actually work
20:53:28*gevaerts wants to do MTP as a tsr plugin written in lua :)
20:53:35LloreanPaulJam_: We don't really give weighted playlisting for anything else either, I'm not sure that's something that "must" be preserved. It's an anomaly.
20:53:48JdGordon|its a feature :)
20:54:18JdGordon|gevaerts: wouldnt that actually end up being worse on the battery life? seen as its an additional thread running?
20:54:21gevaertsJdGordon|: or just a plugin that takes the random folder advance config file and dumps a huge playlist...
20:54:41JdGordon|the currne tplugin could be made to do that already
20:55:03gevaertsindeed. I think that's actually the best plan in the short to medium term
20:55:09LloreanThat's probably the simplest/cleanest way
20:55:29PaulJam_gevaerts: i assume you wouldn't be able to skip an album that way?
20:55:30JdGordon|does that mean we have a volanteer to do the work? :)
20:55:31LloreanCouldn't you then take the random folder advance code out of core, and clean up the playback engine a little bit, once that happens?
20:55:53JdGordon|not worth it
20:55:58gevaertsJdGordon|: on huge memory targets with low bitrate files and reasonably short albums, you currently spin up twice as much. I doubt if an extra thread can use that much battery :)
20:56:00*JdGordon| would veto that anyway
20:56:14LloreanJdGordon|: I thought the random folder code caused problems basically any time someone worked on playback.
20:56:43JdGordon|I'm not sure where you got that idea from.... that specific feature is tiny compared to the rest of playback.c
20:56:52gevaertsJdGordon|: you mean you want me to do plugin/UI work?
20:56:52LloreanNot size-wise. Complexity wise.
20:57:13LloreanI just remember it a lot of complaints about it being a dirty hack, and similar.
20:57:38JdGordon|the whole playback<->playlist bit is nasty... removing that wont make it better by enough
20:57:57LloreanBy enough for what?
20:58:03JdGordon|to make it worth it...
20:58:12LloreanWorth what? I'm confused.
20:58:31gevaertsno, but maybe (NB: I've never looked at it) removing it would make the whole thing just a bit less daunting to clean up?
20:59:00LloreanPeople have talked about getting rid of random folder advance anyway. If there's a replacement that covers most of it, and offers better battery life while it works, it seems like it makes arguments for not removing it a lot smaller.
20:59:42JdGordon|im giong by memory here.. and obviously cant actually look at the code now to be sure, but the whole random folder bit is a hack ontop of the current regular next folder hack which is a hack ontop of the current end-of-playlist handling
20:59:48 Join saratoga_ [0] (i=9803c6dd@rockbox/developer/saratoga)
20:59:50JdGordon|so the actual issue is 4 or 5 levels up
20:59:52LloreanIt *could* cover all of it if the "Folder Skip" key combination within a playlist skipped to the next track in a different folder as well.
21:00
21:00:24LloreanThen we could get rid of the "next folder" hack by telling people to just use playlists. =p
21:00:36JdGordon|hell no
21:00:49LloreanWell that was an informative statement as to why this is a bad idea...
21:01:02gevaertsJdGordon|: that also means that it's one of the blockers to clean up the lower hacks
21:01:40saratoga_from the manual: "Some old “floor 0” files may crash Rockbox."
21:01:51JdGordon|I disagree.... I agree that its a hack, but the problem is the playback playlist interaction... there is no point cleaning this up untill that interaction is fixed completly
21:01:53saratoga_really? I thought any attempt to malloc too much resulted in an error and track change

21:03:27JdGordon|music startup that is
21:03:37*gevaerts thinks that we should take all these hacks out. JdGordon| obviously feels strong enough about them to implement them properly then ;)
21:03:42Learsaratoga_: Tremor doesn't really check for null returns from malloc. Should be fixed by the longjump hack I added though. :)
21:04:05LloreanJdGordon|: A couple seconds, and only if you don't already have a playlist in place.
21:04:07JdGordon|gevaerts: you seem to forget that I have all these grandious plans for like the entire code base, but not enough time to do any of them :p
21:04:08saratoga_we should just kill floor0 support entirely

21:05:15saratoga_its basically non-existent in the wild though
21:05:28LloreanSo fail graciously with a clear message, rather than it being unknown whether it'll work until tried?

21:05:49saratoga_i'd like to commit that
21:06:01JdGordon|gevaerts: its been discussed a few times... I tihnk everyone agrees that playback should have nothing to do with playlist at all.. it should only request a track to buffer, and let the playlist know which has just finished
21:06:32JdGordon|What I'd love to happen is that the playlist gets told the buffer is low, and the current playlist has been buffered, so go and build a new one
21:06:40saratoga_in my testing it fixed a nasty crash in vorbis and saved us some codec memory as well, but i'm not 100% sure its safe since I don't understand vorbis's bitstream

21:11:48XqtftqxWhats up people?
21:11:49PaulJam_Llorean: well, my personal usage pattern for the random folder feature is to start playback on a specific album i want to hear and have random folder enabled so it continues playback after the current album has finished. so for me it is important at which album the random folder playback starts. i imagine with the playlist idea it would start with a random folder.
21:12:06JdGordon|gevaerts: that number is very small... I'd settle for anyone who has a blame line in playback.c ro buffering.c or really anyone who is masochistic enough :)
21:12:16XqtftqxHey who said they porting the sim to lua
21:12:17LloreanPaulJam_: Why? You can just browse to the folder in the playlist rather than the folder tree.

21:13:21saratoga_but i don't use vorbis much so i wasn't 100% sure it was safe
21:13:24LloreanPaulJam_: Not very long at all for me. i don't know how long it takes you.
21:13:36LloreanPaulJam_: You have a page up and page down button, since you're on a player that can folder skip.

21:15:35JdGordon|Llorean: its also this... if you are browsing the tree and come up to a folder you want to listen its 1 press to get it going and then leave it for a few hours if you want to... your way requireds starting the playlist (probably with a long select) followed by searchign the (potentially very long ) list
21:15:37LloreanPaulJam_: This is going to be one of those "it has to be exactly the same as it was before, or I won't accept it" situations, isn't it?
21:16:07JdGordon|yes, because the issue here isnt the UI.... its the backend
21:16:28LloreanJdGordon|: Yeah, but the UI is being used as an excuse to not replace the backend.
21:16:35LloreanSo the issue is the UI.

21:18:24LloreanAnd having the "Next folder" command work within playlists allows the UIs to match once playback starts, making the issue boil down to making playlist generation follow the old UI for when random advance is wanted.
21:18:30 Join Hillshum_ [0] (n=chatzill@unaffiliated/hillshum)
21:19:11PaulJam_it doesn't have to be exactly the same as before, but with the suggested solution it gets really overcomplicated: first i have to create the playlist and launch it, then enter the playlist viewer then i assume the folder order in this playlist is shuffled, so i'll have to search for a while to find the desired album that i want to hear now. opposet to just select a song from the filebrowser.
21:20:11LloreanPaulJam_: And yet you're preparing for hours of playback, so a few moments of prep time relative to it is hardly a significant amount. And as I've said, the UI could be fixed
21:20:19LloreanAs JdGordon| has pointed out, the issue is backend.
21:20:22JdGordon|Llorean: no, you are arguing the wrong argument.... the UI is fine, the backend is the issue.. what you want to do is jus a band aid fix for no real gain
21:20:37LloreanJdGordon|: As I've _said_ the UI could be made to match the current UI.
21:21:10JdGordon|the current UI is fine
21:21:17JdGordon|I wouldnt have a problem adding your way

21:21:54 Quit _lifeless (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
21:22:03LloreanWhat part of 'the UI could be made to match the current UI" suggests that there's something wrong with the current UI?
21:22:25JdGordon|what you want to do does nothing but removes the feature for some people like me and PaulJam_
21:23:00LloreanIf the UI was made to match the current UI, people like you and PaulJam_ would be physically unable to tell the difference unless you manually entered the playlist viewer and saw it was more populated than usual.
21:23:08PaulJam_Llorean: maybe i have expressed myself badly. it is not that i really prepare for hours of playback, it is mainly that i want the player to continue playing albums after an album has finished, so i dont have to manually select a new one.
21:23:12LloreanYou really are just ignoring what I'm saying, right?
21:23:33JdGordon|Llorean: you miss the case where I'm at the folder i want to play now.. why do i need to go searching through the list to find it?
21:23:45LloreanThis is one of those "let's argue for the sake of arguing, but not actually read what's being responded" moments where you're missing the fact entirely that I've said it should be possible to address _all_ of your complaints from the UI
21:24:03LloreanJdGordon|: No, I didn't miss that. When I said "the UI could match the current one" I didn't mean in special cases.
21:24:07LloreanI meant in all cases
21:24:22LloreanThere's already a "random folder advance" option, you just make it change playlist generation instead of playback.
21:24:44LloreanWhen it's on, and you do what you just described, it iterates through folders randomly inserting them, so you get a giant playlist, rather than doing stuff once playback starts.
21:25:23LloreanThe problem with creating a giant playlist now is that once it's playing, the UI would be different.
21:25:34LloreanWhich is why I suggested a way to fix the in-playback UI.
21:26:49*Llorean gives up.
21:26:58JdGordon|ok I aprrently missed something
21:27:04JdGordon|that sounds fine... but it doesnt solve anything
21:27:06*Llorean is saying "you could have what you wanted without the folder advance hack in place" and is still being argued with.
21:27:13LloreanJdGordon|: What doesn't it solve?
21:27:23JdGordon|the underlying issue that playback<->playlist is a mess
21:27:26LloreanIt means the hack no longer needs to be in the playback system, because the playback system is just dealing with whole playlists.
21:27:31JdGordon|there are bigger fish to fry there
21:27:44LloreanAren't these hacks also in the way of frying those fish?
21:27:45JdGordon|playback shouldnt deal with *any* playliosts
21:28:20JdGordon|they would all be moved in one step
21:29:23*gevaerts thinks that random_folder_advance_config needs to be renamed. That name is at least twice as long as the next longest plugin name...
21:30:08Lloreangevaerts: It's always seemed odd to me that we've had that plugin, but use database.ignore files for the database
21:30:16LloreanIt seems like two different solutions to essentially identical problems.
21:30:37JdGordon|if someone wants to get their hands dirty, my suggestino would be to create a minimalistic playlist handler which allows the playback to get a filename to buffer, listens for the "track finished/changed" event, accepts a track change command from the WPS/UI and nothing more

21:39:44LloreanPaulJam_: So you could have /Music/Albums/everything and /Music/Singles/those other ones?

21:41:14LloreanWhat next question?
21:42:10JdGordon|why the config is needed at all
21:43:20LloreanDoesn't random folder advance work without the config already?

21:45:27LloreanMaybe I'd like it better if the plugin wasn't more or less hidden among the others.

21:58:13JdGordon|apparently the dircache pointer in the playlist struct is not dircache related

21:58:37Jaykaya question about core voltage... can you set it as you want on every target (or some of them)?
21:58:43gevaertscould be. Maybe an older thing?

22:01:03Jaykaywhat would a too-low-voltage cause? a crash?

22:06:26Jaykaykugel: on targets where you can change it... did somebody do test where the minimum voltage for boosted/unboosted is?
22:06:38Jaykays/test/tests
22:06:58Hillshumrasher: I posted another file to FS #10290. Anything missing?
22:07:24kugelJaykay: I think the AMSes are the first targets actually set set the voltage
22:07:40Jaykayok :)
22:08:05kugelthe gigabeat S can do it, maybe F/X too, maybe the creative and mr:robe 500 too
22:08:21kugelthe beast doesn't do it yet, I have no idea about the others
22:08:43AlexPI don't know if the F?X can, but it doesn't
22:08:47kugelJaykay: for the AMSes, we basically stick to what the OF does. Going by the datasheet, the setting isn't even allowed
22:08:53rasherHillshum: I don't really know much about what's needed
22:09:03AlexPThe F/X doesn't do clock scaling as runtime went down slightly when clock scaling was turned on
22:09:03LloreanI think I remember talk about doing it on the iPods so it may also be possible there.
22:09:04rasherHillshum: but I don't see any *errors*
22:09:12gevaertsCan you get at filetypes.h info from a plugin?
22:09:22Hillshumrasher: Should I just wait awhile then?
22:09:22saratoga_kugel: The V1 sansa let you change it too
22:10:05kugelwell, the as3514 does, but we don't know if the CPU supports it (I was going by the CPU)
22:10:12saratoga_we left it at 1.2v though since we didn't know if lower is safe
22:10:34kugelhas anyone tried lowering?

22:10:43saratoga_yeah i ran at 1.05v for a while
22:10:50kugelI can't imagine going a bit lower harms anything, particilarly for unboosted
22:11:05saratoga_it wont' break anything but it may cause crashes
22:11:26Jaykaybut the runtime should be longer right?
22:11:29saratoga_anyone who uses vorbis feel like testing a patch?
22:11:41saratoga_yes power scales with the square of voltage
22:12:45*kugel would be quite interested in a battery bench
22:13:00gevaertsWhat happens if an m3u playlist has a file that's not of a playable type?
22:13:06kugelJaykay: feel like risking your player? :P

22:16:43 Quit robin0800_ ("away")
22:16:53gevaertsJdGordon|: the playlist code use filetree things to see if a file is playable. That's not possible (at least now) from a plugin, so right now the RFA playlist generator just includes all files
22:17:25JdGordon|why isnt that possible from the plugin?

22:19:52kugeltagtree and filetree are divded were needed, and combined were possible in tree.c

22:20:05JdGordon|be careful... first you look.. then get involved... next thing you know your reworkignthe entire thing
22:20:46Hillshumrasher: if the specified target string does not exist, does langtool just skip it?
22:21:29JdGordon|Jaykay: if you have to ask these questions.... you really should be asking yourself why you want to change the values
22:21:58kugelJaykay: it's quite easy, yes

22:22:21Hillshumthat would be that problem then
