00:27:05ZagorI'm trying various clever prediction and scheduling optimisations to avoid speculative building but it's very difficult since client speeds vary so much

00:33:44ZagorI have the information, but I don't use it. ccache hit rate varies wildly depending on how the commit looks

01:23:25Unhelpfulamiconn: 16-ArialUnicodeMS is still about 2x the size of 16-GNU-Unifont... and there's *some* kind of problem that goes away if i bump the font cache size, and that causes weird things to happen, like parts of the statusbar text appearing elswhere on the screen in the userfont. perhaps a place that was missed where glyph size calculation needs to be changed to check font depth?

01:59:27shamxbut my question is im trying to port the Samsung P2 with the rockbox firmware, and I have done a lot of looking around and saw that the D2 Fw will work with adjustments problem is I don't how to go about it, I'm familiar with C but not the Hardware side of porting and how to actually get it working.....

02:06:45saratogashamx: someone was looking at it a couple months ago, but they vanished without doing much
02:07:02shamxhmmm
02:07:05saratogayou could search the IRC logs or the forums for what they did and pick up after them, or else start somewhere else
02:07:14saratogai think they were trying to write a display driver
02:08:20shamxya thats hwat I read on the thread that the display gets messed up with the D2 Fw, problem is I dont' know where exactly they left off right now I'm starting from scratch
02:12:49saratogai don't think they'd really accomplished much anyway, so probably not much is lost if you start from scratch
02:13:19saratogathe datasheet is available for the display controller, and its easy to run code, so I guess dig through the D2 LCD driver and figure out what needs changing to work with the different screen size
02:13:33shamxhmm kk gunna look at the d2 fw and see whats done with it so far

02:40:37kugelMG_Man: have a few minutes?
02:40:41MG_ManSo for the h300. you need to first put on euro firmware, then you can put on rockbox?
02:40:42MG_ManSure
02:41:15kugelI'm gonna put my custom statusbar patch on flyspray, with some h300 suitable test theme
02:41:27MG_ManAlright
02:41:36kugeldo you happen to have a remote also?
02:41:50MG_ManI don't have a DAP yet
02:41:55MG_ManI'm using the sims
02:41:58kugeloh
02:42:14MG_ManGonna order an h300 either today or tomorrow though
02:42:16kugellooked to me as if you would have one
02:42:19MG_ManJust wanna make sure it all works

02:43:54MG_ManIt got stolen though, but as to why anyone would want an old iPod is beyond me
02:44:01MG_ManBut, that's what iPods do :/

03:19:31kugelwithout a large speed hit?
03:19:43kugelI'd rather offer a bit binsize for maximum performance
03:20:57Unhelpfulthis shouldn't have a significant speed hit, it's only one extra multiply in the FG-color case, and the second multiply is replaced with a multiply-accumulate to avoid adding as a separate step
03:21:51Unhelpfuland there's never any testing for or updating an LUT
03:23:41Unhelpfulalso, the new loop logic would be very easy to adapt to word-at-a-time reads from the glyph data, which would be a pretty nice speedup on little-endian targets - i don't think we can do that on BE?
03:24:39kugelwell you would just need to swap it, wouldn't you?
03:25:01Unhelpfulyes, but would that be any faster than just using byte-at-a-time?
03:25:34kugelI'd think so

03:31:30kugelcustom statusbar is +1.7k binsize. 300 of which are making the skin tokens id3 == NULL safe
03:32:09JdGordon_you say that like its a bad thing?
03:32:11kugelram is more, at least +260 per screen for the filename settings, and 1.8k per screen for the gui_wps etc structs
03:32:35kugelno, *only* 1.7k :)
03:32:48JdGordon_fuck deltas... this is going in once its ready
03:33:25Unhelpfultest_gfx doesn't test text drawing :/
03:33:53kugelthis one is definitely worth 0.04s of mp3 playback
03:34:18kugelUnhelpful: add it ? :p
03:34:29Unhelpfulworking on that. :P
03:34:38kugeljust lcd_puts() "ROCKBOX" a thousand times
03:34:52JdGordon_kugel: my first thought is settings_apply_skins() should go *inside* the THEME_CHANGHED event handler
03:35:38MG_ManOkay
03:35:40kugelyou can skip the nitpicking :)
03:35:41MG_ManUploading theme now
03:36:10JdGordon_umm.. isnt that the point of code reviews?
03:36:33JdGordon_and first thought means i didnt think the consequences through.. but it logically makes sense
03:36:34kugelsure, go on
03:36:53Unhelpfulkugel: it seems to have something like that, i must've missed it in the output
03:37:25kugelsettings_apply_skins is settings code and belongs there IMO
03:37:32kugelviewport.c should mess with the filenames etc
03:37:58kugelshould *not*
03:38:05JdGordon_viewport.c shouldnt do anything other than say where each viewport is...
03:38:12JdGordon_and *maybe* do the refreshing
03:39:32kugelI think it's fine where it is (settings_apply_skins() and viewport_theme_changed() )

03:50:26JdGordon_using VOICE_EXT_WPS for the sb file is not really ideal either

06:18:53JdGordonis it a safe assumption that *most* skin lines wont have more than say 5 or 6 sublines?
06:20:37JdGordonI need to walk a linked list to find the next suitable list item (frequently).... is it better to use less complicated code and start the search at the start and remember the best until the "current" item, or start the search from current untill the end, then start from the beging again?
06:20:44LloreanAlternating sublines lines?
06:20:50JdGordonyeah
06:22:05LloreanI'd imagine the average number used is probably only 3 or 4, but I haven't really looked.
06:24:39JdGordonand most lines would only have 1 subline...

06:30:00JdGordonhmm.... eeek
06:41:57JdGordonok, I *think* that sublines dont actually work as intended anymore... it looks like regrdless of the different subline timeouts it will still always do 1->2->3->1... if that makes sens
06:41:59JdGordone
06:42:19safetydanthe rockbox dsp is 32-bit internally?
06:42:52*JdGordon has no idea
06:43:53safetydanhrm... I was almost sure that there were some codecs that had a higher than 16-bit sample output and the DSP handled this
06:44:11JdGordonhmm... CustomWPS suggests that that is how its supposed to work
06:44:32safetydanah, there's a comment in dsp.c that confirms its 32-bit internally
06:47:10JdGordondont trust comments :)
06:47:47safetydaneh, good enough for my purposes

07:20:30Newanow that it's a bit more quiet, a question about hardware compatibility:
07:21:13NewaI have a e-cheapo mp3 player that has been flashed incorrectly and currently functions as a weird-shaped usb stick of sorts, but doesn't play anything
07:21:29NewaI opened the case and got these numbers inside:
07:21:36NewaTCH A105 V2
07:21:42Newa0816
07:21:48NewaSamsung 843 K9G4G08U0A
07:21:53NewaPCB0
07:22:47NewaIs is possible to detect from that if the player is compatible with rockbox, and if so, which model would most resemble it's functionality?
07:24:08Newa(big) pictures of the opened player here: http://arcadia.anime.fi/~n/pikkump/
07:25:06JdGordonthere is no such thing as compatable with rockbox... rockbox has either been ported, is in progress... or not at all...
07:25:14JdGordonyours is in the 3rd category
07:26:34Newaok, so abandon hope for that strand
07:26:39Newathanks for the reply :)

16:16:25kugelwell, it touches (roughly) a dozen plugins and every target, so I can't really tell without heavy testing :)
16:17:02gevaertsin that case I'd vote for just after :)
16:17:11kugelon the other hand, it's still 4 (a whole third of the cycle) until the release

16:18:46gevaertsthat means only two weeks until the freeze though. I'm not sure, maybe that's enough...
16:19:04kugelthe freeze doesn't have much to do with it
16:19:50gevaertsyes and no. You can of course still fix serious bugs during the freeze, but it's not something to plan for I think
16:20:09kugelevilnick: what are you referring to with your post to the ui vp thread?
16:20:25kugelI think that's exactly the plan for the freeze
16:20:36kugelI don't think it has serious bugs

16:21:54kugelI didn't find "flashing warning" in that manual
16:22:46pixelma_the thing is that you change quite a bit and even if there are only small bugs left they could possibly stay "unknown", whereas the current version has the "known bug" of some plugins not working correctly with regards to the controls, not sure
16:23:18pixelma_(regarding getting the PLA rework in during the freeze)
16:23:41kugelI meant to commit it pre-freeze if at all (of course)
16:24:14evilnickIt's in the Conditional Viewports section just under the EXAMPLE (page 2 of 7). And is a *really* minor thing.

16:43:58Blue_DudeI found one, but I don't know if it's the same one you've been working with.
16:45:03Blue_DudeIn some circumstances, the WPS won't update when changing tracks while paused. The non-conditional viewport will update but the conditional viewports won't.
16:45:25kugelthat sounds familiar
16:45:45Blue_DudeOK, then you know. That's all I was going for.

17:01:14kugelis that depending on the album art somehow?
17:01:51Blue_DudeThe conditional viewport is conditional on album art being present, yes. If present, one will show. If not, the other will show.
17:02:11kugelthat bug might on the other head not be related to conditional vps but with the way how retrieving the next track works as well
17:02:29Blue_DudeMaybe. But WPS screens without viewports work fine.
17:02:30kugelI meant the occurence of the bug
17:02:53kugelhave you tried next track info outside of a conditional vp?
17:03:19Blue_DudeYes. The non-conditional viewport shows track info, and it updates normally.

17:04:47kugelHave you tried having the *next track* info outside of a cond vp?
17:04:48Blue_DudeNext track info is a little flaky regardless. Sometimes it takes a while for it to catch up.

17:25:49Blue_Dudeok. Next track info in a non-cond VP is still flaky.
17:27:25Blue_DudeThis is interesting: the bug still exists when the viewport is non-conditional. But the viewport is labeled. When the viewport is shown with %V all is well. When it's shown with %Vd is doesn't update correctly.
17:28:38 Quit Grahack ("Leaving.")
17:29:11kugeli.e. it works correctly with plain %V, but not with %?COND<%Vda|%Vda>?

17:30:37kugelhrm
17:30:43kugelstrange
17:31:02kugelJdGordon may have an idea, he committed cond vp and reworked it recently too
17:31:24Blue_DudeYeah. I assumed it was a condition thing too, but it's the labeled viewport that does it.

17:57:59pixelmaonly if the one before is reaaalllly old
17:58:06domonokyno, unless your bootloader is very very old its not necessary. the bootloader rarly changes.
17:58:09webguest74umm...I dont know how old it is.....
17:58:13JdGordon(07:48:17 AM) kugel: I found that conditionals aren't evaluated if the viewport they're defined in is hidden <- that is by design... although I could see why that could cause problems because the next track stuff is all statis
17:58:14webguest74how do I check?
17:58:21JdGordonalthough hmm... it shouldnt
17:58:45kugelJdGordon: but I hide the default and %Vi viewport for the statusbar
17:59:14pixelmawebguest74: is a bootloader version displayed if you turn the Ipod on?
17:59:19webguest74umm...
17:59:24webguest74gimmie a sec

17:59:34webguest74L/
17:59:36webguest74K.
17:59:41kugelhence doing the image definitions and stuff like %?mp<%Vda|%Vdb> in the default or after %Vi is problematic

18:00:03*kugel doesn't understand that design decision

18:01:12kugelBlue_Dude: that's because the UI is supposedly in sync with the pcm buffer, but that one can't announce when a track changed in the pcm buffer
18:01:40domonokywebguest74: if you are able to follow directions, the only proove way to destroy a ipod is to use a hammer :-)
18:02:13Blue_Dudekugel: So the UI just doesn't know where it is so it punts?
18:02:32kugelkind of that, yea
18:03:20kugelfeel free to work on that :)
18:03:29Blue_Dudekugel: So somewhere there's a regime that recognizes that the codec is filling the next track but playing the current one, so freeze the tags so avoid confusing the user...

18:04:21Blue_Dude:)
18:04:42kugelplayback.c apparently know when the pcm transition happened (it does send the event to the wps), but I guess since you paused it isn't active
18:04:44JdGordonBlue_Dude: no, what happens is playback "finishes" with the current track and actually moves on to the next track, WPS stll thinks the current track is playing, and untill PCM is really finsihed with that previous track Wierd Shit Can Happen!
18:05:32JdGordonand yeah, because you have paused it during this time.. all bets are off

18:08:29JdGordonin my mind it should happen more like this... playback just does the buffering, when the end of the song is approaching *nothing* happens untill PCM sends the "track finished" event which gets to play*list* first which updates and then WPS updates
18:08:38Blue_DudeActually, that fits in nicely. I've been thinking that there should be some way of determining exactly what is going out the hardware *at this instant* . It's the best way of mixing on the fly, which is vital for last second software mixing.
18:09:18JdGordonyou can work that out easily... its codec position+pcm_latency iirc
18:09:19kugelah so the pcmbuffer knows when it finished?
18:09:25JdGordonI belive so
18:09:34kugelor is that latencly a fixed value?

18:11:06pixelmaok, don't let me discourage you :)
18:11:26amiconnBlue_Dude: Fyi: The plugin api version bump in http://svn.rockbox.org/viewvc.cgi/trunk/apps/plugin.h?r1=22394&r2=22395 was unnecessary
18:11:44Blue_DudeOf course, it would be easier just to redifine the "weekend".
18:11:49Blue_Duderedefine
18:12:02JdGordonBlue_Dude: moral of the story is dont pause during that track transition time
18:12:25MoD_hi all, i need help with this command "rb->open(KEYBOX_FILE, O_RDONLY);" - what should it do, create a file?
18:12:40amiconnIt was a fix for the hwcodec targets, which didn't build due to the immediately preceding commit. But if they didn't build, the api doesn't need to be bumped again
18:12:46JdGordonkugel: I didnt get to look at the bar patch enough... I tried doing sub/lines but thats apparentyl alot more complicated than I though/hoped :(
18:12:49Blue_Dudeamiconn: I bumped the version, but not the min version. Isn't that the point?
18:13:09Blue_DudeAh OK.
18:13:17amiconnno
18:13:41kugelJdGordon: no problem, I'm not seriously thinking of getting it in pre-3.4 anyway
18:13:45Blue_DudeTHought it was necessary for backward compatibility. You can make it go away if you like.
18:14:12Blue_DudeJdGordon: i do it all the time. Can't help myself.
18:14:32amiconnThe min api needs, and should, only be bumped if there are incompatible changes. Adding new stuff at the end is exactly for keeping the min api version fixed in the standard case
18:15:12Blue_Dudeamiconn: If that's the case, why have two version numbers?\
18:15:28amiconnThe current api version needs to be bumped whenever something is added.
18:15:31Blue_DudeIf only one is needed to show compatibility, then just use that one.
18:15:46***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
18:15:48amiconnThey are both needed
18:16:07Blue_DudeSo when would you bump one and not the other?
18:16:24kugelBlue_Dude: plugins that use added stuff are not compatible to the API before the stuff was added, the api bump is needed for those
18:16:34amiconnI just explained... I'll try a different way
18:16:46Tornethey're a minimum and a maximum, effectively
18:16:50Blue_Dudeamiconn: only need to bump for hwcodec targets?
18:16:54Torneyou can't run plugins older than min api version because things may have been moved
18:16:56kugelall other plugins can still use an older api since they do not use the new stuff, and since it's added to the end, it's not incompatible.
18:17:03Torneyou can't run plugins newer than the api version because they might use things not in that core
18:17:07amiconnhrrrmmm
18:17:35amiconnBlue_Dude: If you add new functions, add them at the end and bump only the current version
18:17:47Blue_DudeWell, I added to the end, and bumped the version, but not the min version. Still backward compatible but not the same as before.
18:18:01 Quit AndyI (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
18:18:02Torneyes. that's right
18:18:16Blue_DudeWell, I did that and now it seems it was wrong.
18:18:24kugelyou didn't need to change in this particular case because nothing changed for SWCODEC, and HWCODEC didn't even build before
18:18:34amiconnIf you have to do an incompatible change (remove a function from the api that no longer exists, a function changes parameters etc), bump both versions, and take the chance to sort the api
18:19:17amiconnMy point regarding r22395 is that you bumped the api version a second time immediately after r22394, which was unnecessary
18:20:01amiconnr22395 effectively only changes the api for hwcodec (because the function became ifdefed for swcodec), swcodec api hence stayed the same
18:20:11Blue_DudeI didn't bump it in r22394, which is why I fixed it in r22395.
18:20:36amiconnBut r22394 failed to compile for hwcodec, so it couldn't have run on them
18:20:50MoD_have somebody time for a newcommer like me, please? :)
18:20:53amiconnoh
18:21:03amiconnSomehow I remembered that you did....
18:21:21kugelMoD_: I already told you, you need "O_CREAT|O_RDONLY" instead of only "O_RDONLY"
18:21:37n1sMoD_: it should open the file in read only mode
18:21:56Blue_Dudeamiconn: I didn't bump twice. I just failed to bump it the first time, so I took the opportunity when I fixed it for hwcodec targets.
18:21:59MoD_ok i will try, thx
18:22:18kugelBlue_Dude: it's alright then :)
18:22:26n1sMoD_: out of curiosity, what are you doing?
18:22:29Blue_DudeOh good. I was mighy confused.

18:23:21n1sMoD_: ?
18:23:31amiconnBlue_Dude: Btw, the two api versions exist so that 3rd party plugins don't need to be recompiled everytime something new gets added to the api
18:23:33kugelJdGordon: care to explain that design decision? It was giving me slight headache
18:23:42MoD_the plugin "keybox"
18:23:59amiconnThe idea was that there would be several 3rd party plugin - I don't think that actually happened though

18:32:00gevaertskugel: do I need to set a ui viewport for the custom status bar?
18:32:52kugelnot necessarily
18:34:03kugelthere's 3 options, 1) use a ui viewport, b) insert %Vi into the .sb which describes the ui viewport that's not interfering with the sb (ie the ui viewport the .sb is supposed to work with), 3) weird drawing effects and garbage on screen :)

18:34:40gevaertsDon't you really need (1) and (2) to be really sure?
18:34:42kugelin case of 2) it'll automagically apply the %Vi vp as ui viewport.
18:34:47gevaertsah, ok
18:35:49kugeldoing 2) is recommended, a combination of 1) and 2) works too (%Vi is still applied for the wps' default viewport)
18:36:58kugelthe test themes have 1) and 2), the ui viewport is different to %Vi though.

18:43:24kugelit's not as comfortable as a book on the other hand

20:09:36bertriknot as far as I know
20:10:18bluebrotherthat's a rather fuzzy question. Some players do support a brightness setting in hardware, and those can set that. Players without hardware supporting brightness can't do it, and nobody implemented it.
20:10:18bertrikhow do think this can be done automatically? based on time of day? or maybe based on being plugged into a dock or not?
20:10:26 Join Hillshum [0] (n=hillshum@75-165-247-150.slkc.qwest.net)
20:10:34n17ikhwell, I was thinking either time of day, or twiddling some GPIO pins
20:10:43n17ikhbased on whether the lights in the car are on or not
20:11:03bluebrotheralso, on some players (like h100) this would eat up more battery than not dimming it due to the fact that dimming requires boosting the CPU, thus it's not wanted.
20:11:06n17ikhthis being the e200
20:11:18n17ikhwell, for me, it's plugged into a car adapter
20:11:21n17ikhhence car adapter mode
20:11:34n17ikhmaybe I'd be better off hacking up a patch to change the setting
20:11:59n17ikhor change the keymap to make the wheel change brightness instead of volume while plugged in? that seems silly though
20:12:03bluebrotherwell, my e200 has a brightness setting.
20:12:26bluebrotheryou can simply load a new cfg when plugging it in which sets the brightness to a different level.
20:12:39n17ikhwell, the problem is that it's plugged in all the time
20:12:43n17ikhnot only when it's dark
20:13:19n17ikhtime-of-day seems easiest to implement
20:13:39amiconnSetting brightness based on time of day (and year) alone doesn't work - you'd also need the geographic latitude
20:13:39n17ikhyou'd have to have some sort of table or calculation based on the date as well, and the latitude
20:14:05n17ikhor have an application that you run on your computer once to generate some table when you input latitude
20:14:11amiconnThat's why this method is only implemented in gps devices
20:14:34n17ikhand if you travel north-south more than a few hundred miles, it'd become useless
20:14:47JdGordon|or add a light sensor to the front of the device
20:14:57n17ikhif you're adding hardware, yeah
20:15:08amiconnAnd even then it cannot take cloudiness etc into account, so it's not a very useful method
20:15:35bertrikit could be useful, even when not perfect
20:15:50***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
20:16:02n17ikhwell, cloudiness isn't much of a problem, because even the darkest clouds don't attenuate enough light to make it annoying/dangerous to have a bright screen in the car

20:18:44*Llorean would like to point out that he's seen days darker than some nights in some regions.
20:18:53LloreanEspecially when the street lights turn on based on time, rather than darkness.
20:19:26JdGordon|yeah, early afternoon clouds can make it pretty damn dark in winter
20:19:40LloreanWhat's wrong with just having the backlight fade shortly after button presses?
20:19:56n17ikhbecause then you can't see the screen without pressing a button during the day
20:20:08n17ikhand yeah, you can set "first button press brings up the backlight"
20:20:18n17ikhbut, the point is that you should just be able to glance down to get song informatino
20:20:20n1sanyone have any opinion on either letting the rtc_(read|write)_datetime deal with the tm struct directly instead of this cumbersome and useless conversion to and from BCD because that is what ONE chip uses natively and that chip happened to be first

20:20:48n1ss/either//
20:20:59LloreanIt sounds like your feature request is "encourage me to look away from the road more"
20:21:09bertrikn1s, sounds like a great idea to change it
20:21:11n17ikhI'm an american, we drive with our knees while drinking coffee and shaving
20:21:46n17ikhno, the feature request is "make it so I don't have to browse around in the LCD options while driving"
20:22:02JdGordon|but brightness on your quickscreen?
20:22:06JdGordon|put*
20:22:19LloreanIf you weren't choosing to look at the screen, you wouldn't need to change options. Drive safely, then, and it's not a problem.

20:23:43LloreanIt can read filenames just fine.
20:23:51LloreanSo have a good folder structure, and you're set.
20:24:00n1sbertrik: yeah, it should kill off a fair deal of eseentialy unecessary code
20:24:08LloreanBut really, your playlist doesn't go away, you can check what song was playing later once the car has stopped if you really have no clue what music is on your player.
20:24:30n17ikhit's an OCD thing
20:24:45n17ikhI always know what song it is, because I tend to have listened before
20:24:55LloreanSo then you don't need the screen.
20:24:59n17ikhbut I feel the need to check and see
20:25:09LloreanSo think of this as additional therapy. :)
20:25:11kugeln1s: just saying :)
20:25:11n17ikhbut that's not the point.
20:25:28LloreanYou want a relatively complex feature for a very minor thing.
20:26:02n17ikhyeah, which is why I was asking if anyone had wanted it before. I was going to hack up a patch myself if not, because it's probably not that useful for most people.

20:26:35n1ss/,//
20:26:52LloreanDo we have different backlight levels for hold on/off, or just toggling whether or not the backlight may be on while on hold?
20:26:55iambenor should i just mkfs on the first (large) partition?
20:27:05kugeln1s: or just use the quickscreen as JdGordon already proposed
20:27:16n1siamben: the second one is the firmware partition, don't mess with it ;)

20:29:02Lloreanbertrik: A brighter one on keypress but a dim-but-not-off when it goes down?
20:29:18bertrikso for example, when pressing a button the display goes bright, then dimmer after 10 seconds or so and off after 2 minutes
20:29:18LloreanTBH I'm surprised we don't have that. It's pretty standard these days
20:29:23iambenTorne: its also saying "Partition 2 has different physical/logical beginnings (non-Linux?):"
20:29:23kugeln17ikh: if you set it at the bottom, you can even toggle into the opposite direction with up in the qs
20:29:31Torneiamben: likewise
20:29:45bertrikLlorean, yes, something like that
20:29:48n17ikhkugel: thanks. I'll look into that in a bit, my player's in the car

20:29:58Torneiamben: the CHS geometry in the partition table is probably nonsense, but that's ok as nobody uses that if the LBA data is there
20:30:02Lloreanbertrik: I'm not sure it needs three levels (Bright, Faded, Off)
20:31:29bertrikLlorean, then I'm not sure what you mean
20:31:45LloreanJust bright and faded.
20:31:50LloreanI don't really understand why you need three levels
20:32:01LloreanThere's "bright" after a keypress, and faded or off after it returns to idle
20:32:24bertrikI think it still sucks power when dimmed, although I don't know how much to be honest
20:32:40LloreanIt does, but if they don't want to suck power, why not have it turn off?
20:32:47LloreanWhat's the purpose of a dim period if they already don't need the light on?
20:34:00iambenTorne: as long as its normal im not worried about it... i had some FS corruption and was afraid the p.table was damaged too, ill just remake the FS and move on
20:34:42bertrikLlorean, so in your idea, the faded level would optionally replace the off-level, right?
20:34:45Torneiamben: unless it says partitions overlap or extend past the disk it's probably fine
20:35:03Tornelots of formating tools do weird stuff with ptabls these days
20:35:13Torneespecially on memory cards
20:35:30*kugel thinks that would kill the feature (replacing off with choice between off and dimmed)
20:35:31Lloreanbertrik: Yes. It might be useful to save power but still have a visible display on some of the color LCDs, for example.
20:35:43Lloreankugel: Why would the other feature even be useful?
20:35:53kugelno idea
20:35:55*amiconn would also want configurable bright->dimmed->off

20:36:06LloreanWhat purpose does the dimmed period serve, exactly?
20:36:12LloreanIf you're going to off, anyway
20:36:25kugelI'd eventually use it
20:36:37kugelright now I have backlight on for 2min
20:36:56kugelI'd choose to have 5s normal, and additional 2min dimmed
20:37:03amiconnMy cellphone does this, and it's very convenient e.g. when playing (java) games like sudoku
20:37:21LloreanWhat does it achieve, exactly?
20:37:34LloreanIf you can see the screen at the dimmer level, why not just have it dim like that as the normal level and save power the whole time around?
20:37:35amiconnIf you think a bit longer, the display dims down, saving energy but not hiding everything immediately
20:38:10amiconnAnd if you put it away, backlight will still go off completely
20:38:12bertrikfor touchscreens it can help to know where the buttons are
20:38:53Lloreanbertrik: Which is a reason for it to stay on but dim, rather than go off completely.
20:39:46amiconnLlorean: With configurable bright->dim->off, you can of course configure it to never go from dim to off

20:39:57*kugel wonders what not having dimm separate achieves
20:40:02bertrikI can see your point
20:40:15Lloreankugel: Less needless complexity?
20:40:28kugelcomplexity?
20:40:29LloreanWhat does having a third level accomplish that you can't do with two, functionally speaking?
20:40:39amiconnWell, you'd save a setting, but at the price of less flexibility
20:40:42kugelI know the backlight code a bit, and the added complexity is about the same for both
20:40:53Lloreanamiconn: What is gained by that flexibility?
20:41:00kugelyou need to add a setting for both cases too, same complexity again
20:41:02LloreanIf you can see the screen at a dimmer level, why do you need the brighter first one?
20:41:54amiconnkugel: No. You need a setting for the dim level in both cases. Setting the dim level to zero means off.
20:42:13amiconnFor bright->dim->off, you need a second timeout setting, but that's it
20:42:14Lloreankugel: You need more options to set two times, two brightness levels, and their relative plugged in and hold options, than with a setting that just lets you replace "off" with a brightness level
20:42:21kugelamiconn: that's what I said
20:42:56amiconnkugel: Afaiu you said that the number of settings would be the same, which isn't true
20:43:04LloreanIt's literally twice as many settings.
20:43:11kugelboth cases need a setting added
20:43:12amiconneh?
20:43:17bertrikthe time between bright and dimmed could be the same as the buttonlight timeout
20:43:25amiconnkugel: No, the full version needs *two* settings
20:43:35amiconnThe dim level, and the timeout for the dim state

20:50:22bertrikas far as I know, the backlight on full power takes about the same or more current as the other parts of a mp3 player
20:51:14JdGordon|which works out to what if you dimm it for 30s instead of keeping it full for 30s?
20:51:37JdGordon|an extra 2 min battery life?

22:49:27bluebrotheris there any way to tell the preprocessor to actually remove lines instead of replacing them with newlines?
22:53:07Zagorbluebrother: afaik no. C doesn't normally need that.

23:01:34bluebrotherZagor: :(
23:01:46bluebrotherthat way we can't use cpp for the manual.
23:04:20Zagorhow complex conditionals are there in the manual? only ifdef or also if (DEFINE == val)?
23:04:59AlexPThe former but we would like the latter
23:05:18Zagorperhaps this could be used instead: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Build/Text_Preprocessor
23:05:40AlexPFor instance we currently have a large_plugin_buffer define - it'd be nice just to say if buffer > x
23:06:20Zagorthere's also http://www.renyi.hu/~csirmaz/texpp/texpp.html
23:06:53bluebrotherZagor: currently we have "only" the opt package which only checks if a variable is set. My hope was to gain more complex things
23:07:26Zagora limited syntax parser should be fairly simple to hack together

23:09:58n1sbluebrother: being able to use the values of defines in the manual text would be nice too, for things such as battery capacity, volume limits etc
23:10:36n1sbtw, i thought latex didn't care about newlines much
23:11:24AlexPn1s: yeah, that'd be very nice
23:11:29kugelbluebrother: how bad are a few extra newlines? One could also run a script after CPP to collapse consecutive newlines
23:13:42bluebrotherkugel: and how would you recognize an inserted newline? TeX treats two consecutive newlines (i.e. one empty line) as a new paragraph, just collapsing newlines won't work here.
23:14:05bluebrotherApart from that are multiple newlines no problem −− they are always treated as new paragraph.
23:14:44 Quit Strife89 ("Gotta go.")
23:15:33bluebrothern1s: TeX doesn't care much about whitespace, indeed. But as two newlines are the marker for a new paragraph any removed block becomes a new paragraph −− and there is no way to tell if there was an intentional paragraph before substitution.
23:16:56n1sbluebrother: hmm, maybe it can be worked around by always replacing with %, it's a bit clumsy though
23:17:22kugelhmm, difficult. How about using a special char throughout the manual for intended paragraphs. Run CPP first, then delete any single newlines in a scipt, and finally a script to replace the special paragraph char with double newlines?
23:17:38bluebrotherunfortunately not really −− at least not with the preprocessor. But that preprocessor.pl looks promising.
23:18:10n1s#if FOO some text #else % #endif
23:18:11kugelhopefully it's compatible enough to CPP to include config.h properly. It looks like
23:18:33gevaerts<?FOO|something|something else>
23:18:51bluebrothertoo bad, it can't calculate :(

23:21:43AlexPI'm also joking :)
23:21:45kugelCPP is open souce. Couldn't we just hack into it to change that behavior? Probably easier than writing our own
23:22:39n1sbut then people would need to compile/install our special CPP to build the manual
23:22:53*gevaerts hopes that kugel is also joking :)

23:23:30kugeln1s: it would be in our source, compiling it could be done in the same run. We could also have a prebuild binary in SVN or on our download servers
23:23:33kugelgevaerts: not at all
23:23:53kugelIt seems there are a few nasty workarounds :)
23:24:49kugeln1s: I don't think asking people to download our small CPP is bad, they apparently already downloaded 300MB+ of latex before :p
23:25:35bluebrotherbuilding a tool for building the manual isn't a problem IMO. We need gcc on the host anyway.
23:25:36 Quit JdGordroid (Remote closed the connection)
23:26:13n1sI don't like it, some of the people interested in helping out with the manual seem to have enough trouble as it is
23:26:33bluebrotherthough I don't think hacking cpp is a good idea. Instead starting with a small cpp would be better. Probably fcpp, though that doesn't support -P right now.
23:26:39kugelI think the luxury of being able to use CPP is worth it
23:27:27 Nick petur is now known as gevearts (n=petur@rockbox/developer/petur)
23:27:36kugelthe opt stuff itself is complicated enough to scare some interested contributors away too
23:27:44 Nick gevearts is now known as petur (n=petur@rockbox/developer/petur)
23:28:20bluebrotherthat's not the problem −− cpp won't make that much better. The bigger problem is that it has unexpected behaviour sometimes.
23:29:12AlexPand things like nopt can't be used in the same way as opt
23:29:21AlexPnopt(x,y) doesn't work for instance
23:29:27kugelwhat about my suggestion of using a unique intentional paragraph char?
23:30:19bluebrotherthat would require changing everything, plus it's completely incompatible in how LaTeX works. People working on LaTeX should expect that paragraphs work like paragraphs work, not different.
23:30:36bluebrotherotherwise we would create our own language. Which is a bad thing.
23:30:38kugelyea, it's nasty
23:31:39bluebrotherhacking some cpp implementation or creating a simple one that fits our needs is a much better solution. Having cpp directives in LaTeX sources is kinda weird anyway.

23:48:06moosgevaerts: mculemaere fixed it recently IIRC even for remotes
23:48:29gevaertsit compiles, but it just says "WPS parsing failure" whatever I try
23:49:05moosoops *mcuelenaere
23:49:39moosmaybe it was just rebreaked very recently, google+logs could say you more...
23:51:49gevaertswell, I am using the custom status bar patch...
23:52:47moosoh, ok
23:54:10moosgevaerts: is this suposed to go in, before or after the futur release? I don't fully folowed
23:54:24gevaertsthat's undecided yes
23:54:28gevaerts*yet
23:54:37gevaertsit depends on how much I manage to break it :)
