00:19:34TheSevenHighspeed UMS working!
00:19:55TheSevenit's still pretty slow because of the inefficient FTL implementation, but at least it works!

00:22:29linuxstbTheSeven: congratulations!
00:22:51TheSevenbut i won't commit it :-P
00:23:12TheSevenat least not until gevaerts has told me what to do about it, as it needs a pretty questionable change in the USB core
00:23:26TheSeven(which may very well break other targets)
00:24:13TheSevennot sure what the "right way" there is. I consider the way it's currently done a bug, but there are reasons why one could want it to be like this.
00:28:52linuxstbTheSeven: Probably best to post a patch and see what others say...

00:31:05TheSevenI would need to update first, which I just can't do right now

01:25:21bertrikI see several places where current_tick is compared directly to some deadline value, I plan to make those wrap-safe by using the TIME_BEFORE and TIME_AFTER macros

01:32:44*gevaerts tries to understand exactly what the he problem is TheSeven is complaining about
01:33:32pixelmasaratoga: where is it missing?
01:34:02TheSevengevaerts: what's the intended way to re-setup the default control pipe for receiving the next control packet?
01:34:30TheSevenas i don't see an api for this, i'm assuming it should automatically be done when a packet is being received
01:34:37TheSevenis that correct?
01:34:45gevaertsI think so
01:34:56TheSevenok, then there is a bug in usb_core.
01:35:11gevaertsyou mean it was a trick question? ;)
01:35:29pixelmasaratoga: aha, I guess the Fuze manual isn't as advanced as others yet
01:35:38saratogathe keymaps are in for it
01:35:41saratogai wonder why it doesn't show
01:36:13TheSeventhe problem is that the control pipe will be set up for a SETUP receive. then a descriptor will be sent, and then recv() will be called, to receive a DATA1 packet.
01:36:52saratogai don't have tex installed but perhaps theres a compile error or warning on that section?
01:37:01TheSevenif this recv() manages to reach the usb controller in time, everything is fine. but if the USB controller still thinks it's supposed to receive a SETUP packet when the ACK comes in, it will respond with STALL
01:37:35TheSeven(instead of the way intended by the USB specs, answering with NAK until the receive request is there)
01:38:40TheSevenhowever, this means that the recv() must be set up within a few microseconds, and some debugging code (logf-based) was slowing it down enough to make it exceed that
01:39:25TheSevenso the easiest solution probably is to move the request for the ACK from the host above the transmission of the actual descriptor (or whatever is being sent).
01:39:28*gevaerts tries to follow the code
01:39:47TheSeventhis fixed it for me, after hunting that weird lockup-when-debugging issue for days
01:40:13TheSeven(this still doesn't explain why it did lock up, but at least it was the root cause of it)
01:40:22pixelmasaratoga: no - there are two tables - one for targets which only moving on the input line if you "step" on it (called "picker area") and others that also have keys for that. That's why they are \opts around either of the two tables and the fuze isn't in any of the two opts
01:40:54saratogaso it just needs to be added?
01:41:17TheSevenso I'm suggesting to move lines 614 and 615 upwards in that code, between lines 602 and 603
01:41:53TheSeven(I'm talking about usb_core.c... there also be some more locations that have the same bug, but this one was most critical)
01:41:53pixelmasaratoga: yes to one of the two, provided that the keymap file (the tex one) has all the \ActionBlah that are needed
01:42:03saratogait looks like it does
01:42:10saratogathe entry is nearly identical to the e200
01:42:12saratogabut i can't test here
01:42:33saratogaassuming keymap-fuze is all thats needed anyway
01:43:47TheSevens/there/there may/
01:44:01gevaertsTheSeven: I'm not entirely convinced it's that simple. Is that allowed for both directions?
01:44:56TheSeventhe problem will come up with every non-SETUP packet received by the device
01:45:18pixelmasaratoga: if you don't find another person, I can try tomorrow but am about to go to sleep. Feel free to remind me, not as late as now though
01:45:24TheSevenso this should only happen for control transactions that have a DATA IN stage
01:46:30gevaertsTheSeven: yes. We probably need to split the usb_core_ack_control() function I guess
01:47:35TheSevenor just add a parameter to the usb_drv_send function that indicates that a 0-byte DATA OUT is to follow
01:47:40 Quit n17ikh (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
01:48:17gevaertspossibly, or make a usb_drv_send_control() that does that
01:48:33gevaertsI'd prefer not to export this complication to non-control
01:48:52TheSevenit will only happen for EP0 anyways
01:49:25TheSevenso you got what the issue is? then I'll go to sleep now
01:49:33gevaertsdo we ever want usb_drv_send() on EP0 without the 0-byte DATA OUT?
01:49:58mc2739saratoga: I can test manual changes if you need
01:50:40TheSevencan you check how the other drivers handle that? I'm somehow thinking they are probably just fast enough for this to stay hidden
01:50:55 Join n17ikh [0] (
01:51:20TheSeventhis seems to have disappeared for me, too, now that I have disabled debugging again, but this definitely needs to be fixed
01:51:55gevaertsI'll try to look at this tomorrow. My brain is just awake enough to see that there is a problem, but not to exactly understand all nuances
01:52:03TheSevenimposing an unneccessary realtime requirement in the microsecond range isn't good at all.
01:52:12TheSevenyes, mine too
01:52:24gevaertsdefinitely not. Any timing constraint should go
01:54:00gevaertsI'm not sure if all controllers will like a recv() on EP0 before sending
01:54:20TheSevenyes, that's why i'm asking you what to do about this :-)
01:55:02gevaertsthe answer is: I don't know... I've only ever really looked at the ARC. I can test ARC and tcc here
01:55:04TheSevenbut we really should look at that tomorrow, I'm almost falling asleep after a long day of hunting this
01:55:13gevaertsgood idea

13:50:33TheSevenhowever, it will only affect control traffic on EP0, not bulk traffic
13:51:07TheSevenbut requests like getmaxlun are also done through that control pipe, so it may as well have an impact after enumeration

14:10:41 Join J-23 [0] (
14:12:12gevaertsno, I managed to keep the issue out of my mind all this time
14:14:14gevaertsmaybe the proper solution is to move most of the control handling out of usb_core.c and into the drivers
14:14:35*gevaerts just thinks out loud at the moment
14:16:30TheSevengevaerts: this would increase the amount of work needed to be done to implement new controllers
14:17:08TheSevenon the other hand, i already have another quirk where I need to bypass usb_core's handling of the SET_ADDRESS command, and I remember seeing something similar in the tcc driver
14:17:09gevaertstrue, but this seems to be an area where controllers have different expectations from software

14:38:51gevaertsTheSeven: if we move the recv(EP0,0) to the driver, to be done together with the send(EP0,whatever), drivers can do it before or after the transmit depending on what the hardware can handle
14:39:44TheSevenso you would vote for a usb_drv_sendrecv0 function?
14:39:58TheSeven(or whatever you would like to call it)
14:40:16gevaertsif we do that, at least for arc doing the recv() after the send() will be less easy than doing it before, so I hope the hardware can handle before
14:40:56gevaertsI would actually do it in usb_drv_send(). I don't think any EP0 transmit will ever not want the 0-byte receive
14:41:03TheSevenin theory every hardware should be able to handle that, as they're independant endpoints
14:41:31TheSevengevaerts: what about EP0 transmits that are 0-byte ACKs themselves?

14:43:38TheSeven(even though this may look backwards to people who don't know USB :-P )
14:44:39gevaertsif we assume that all controllers can handle this, maybe we should provide wrappers for send and receive in usb_core.c that do all this?

14:51:22*gevaerts prepares a patch
14:52:02funmanalso invalidating the entire dcache while you could invalidate only a range is quite slow no ?
14:52:42TheSevenfunman: can I invalidate a range?
14:53:00funmanyes, see invalidate_dcache_range()
14:53:10TheSevenas far as i can tell, that's one of the things needing to be ifdef'ed out because this core doesn't support it
14:53:59TheSeveni can only kick cache lines out, not cache tags
14:54:10funmanah you can't use MVA :/
14:54:38funmani assumed since 940 > 922 it would be possible like on the arm922tdmi
14:55:20funmanthen yeah it makes sense to have these functions separated
14:55:51funmanideally they should be separated as mmu-arm940.S mmu-armv6.S ..
14:56:55TheSeveni would rather consider mmu-armv4.S and mmu-armv6.S
14:56:57funmandidn't you mention that 940T has no mmu ?
14:57:34TheSevenfunman: no real MMU in terms of remapping, but of course it has cache coherency stuff, which is in a "mmu-xyz" file by rockbox design
14:57:46funmanrockbox design is flexible ;)
14:58:39TheSevenin fact, calling it "cp15-armv4.S" would make more sense, and adding things to define memory regions and protection stuff, that's currently done in crt0.S
14:58:42amiconnmmu-armv4.S would be wrong
14:58:58amiconnARM7TDMI is armv4 as well, but has no mmu
14:59:20TheSeventhis thing doesn't have a real MMU either, just cache stuff
14:59:23amiconnIt doesn't have CP15 either, which is what this caching stuff is about

15:06:04TheSevenbertrik: is anything besides PCM actually using the s5l870x DMA right now?
15:06:18bertrikno I don't think so
15:06:50TheSeventhe problem is that this is only restarted on whole completion currently, which is resulting in some popping action as it isn't fast enough

15:12:47funmanhmm .. mmu-arm.h
15:13:10gevaertsTheSeven: it's the usb_drv_send()+expect ack change that needs to change, right?
15:13:39TheSevens/ack change/ack case/?
15:14:55TheSevengenerally, everything that needs to be received on EP0 which isn't a setup packet will need to call recv() before it can be sent from the host side, so before triggering it by sending something to the host
15:15:16TheSeventhis is the case for setup=>data=>ack-style requests, but maybe also other things... (getmaxlun?)
15:15:20amiconnTheSeven: Weird design. I'd expect a fifo for 8 or 16 samples
15:15:37gevaertsgetmaxlun is exactly the same as a get descriptor
15:16:02TheSevenamiconn: I can't say for sure that there is no such fifo, but the DS at least doesn't mention one
15:18:24TheSevenbertrik: spotted another nice bug in there: for (channel = 0; channel < 4; channel++) { if (DMAALLST & mask) {
15:18:29TheSeven...without shifting the mask!
15:18:41bertrikmask <<=4 is there somewhere IIRC
15:18:49TheSevenah, wait, it's shifted below
15:21:46bertriknot having any buffering in IIS is going to make things slightly more complicated ...

20:58:33kkurbjunhmm, looking at the 940 assembly though it looks like they may have implemented separate from arch on the 940.

21:07:18TheSeventhat pp has 2 cores, right?
21:09:25 Join yelped [0] (
21:09:53mrtok1symptons are: processing dsp function on MAIN_CPU -> sounds good , doing on COP artefacts occur
21:10:26linuxstbmrtok1: The problem is likely to be cache coherency between the two cores.
21:10:38linuxstb(they have independent caches)
21:11:04yelpedCan someone please check out why Mp3encoder doesn't work properly with 24000Hz files? Mp3encoder encodes squirell-voice-files.
21:11:06kkurbjunit looks like they do most if by the core version does the samsung yps3 use the sl5L870X
21:11:54kkurbjunlooks like it does
21:12:27linuxstbyelped: I think we've all see that now.... But that plugin is more or less abandoned - it was implemented as a first test before mp3 encoding was integrated into recording. It's poor quality at best.
21:12:57mrtok1linuxstb: okay - the idea is starting a thread on the cop, passing pointer to second channel to process, waiting for thread_exit - how to deal with 2 caches - do i have to update the COP cache manually?
21:14:23linuxstbmrtok1: I've never programmed it, but I believe you'll need to flush the cache on the main CPU and invalidate it for the COP (for memory shared between the two processors). Have you looked at other code using the COP - e.g. the mp3 decoder?
21:14:45pixelmalinuxstb: shouldn't the plugin be disabled then? Though I can imagine that the error is in something Fuze specific too...
21:14:51yelpedOh, because Recording is not enabled yet on the AMS Sansas, so meanwhile I was using the OF to record and when I wanted to save some space, I used the Mp3encoder. Thanks for the info!

21:48:53pixelmajust read that, but Matsch is the German word for mud (and that's quite a German sounding name) </off-topic>
21:49:28saratogai assumed it was just short for Matthias
21:49:38mc2739pixelma: You may not have committed your changes, or something else broke the M3 manuals since there are no daily manual builds for the M3
21:50:56pixelmaI think I committed them and do a test build currently, there can be other reasons that it's not available as a daily. And even if it builds, I think it's fairly incomplete
21:51:24pixelmait doesn't
21:52:12pixelmabut it breaks in the pictureflow plugin, so gets quite far I think
21:53:00mc2739that is where it stopped for me, too
21:55:12linuxstbsaratoga: Do you have a link to those flake benchmarks?
21:55:45pixelmamc2739: that is further than the files my changes affected - and I see the error
21:56:24saratogaalthough from what I understand the CUDA enabled FLAKE can use even more aggressive encoding (since the GPU can do more extensive brute force searching of optimal codes or something)
21:57:10pixelmanow to find the correct "Select" button for pictureflow, due to pluginlib actions that's not easy :\
21:58:11saratogalinuxstb: I'll try a test file now
21:58:42linuxstbsaratoga: Yes, looks like flake is generating files with higher LPC orders, and that's giving a minimal compression advantage, with the disadvantage that it's much harder to decode.

22:04:51pixelmamc2739: committing a fix in a bit. The pictureflow error was the only thing to make it build again. The next step would be to add HAVEREMOTEKEYMAP (or the like) to the options and fill out the button tables with the Iaudio remote mappings, you would have to read the code for it because the remote buttons are not simulated
22:04:55saratogasorry 25KB smaller
22:05:07saratogaso yeah it looks fairly useless but still interesting to know if we can decode efficiently
22:05:09linuxstbsaratoga: Which version of flac? And did you decode to wav first?

22:09:40bertrik_markun, I forgot something about the lcd: the lcd controller used by the m6sp wants 32-bit pixel (at least as far as I understand it) and rockbox does not support that
22:10:58bertrik_I tried to come up with a quick hack where the 16-bit framebuffer data is converted to 32-bit framebuffer data in lcd_update_rect but I don't have enough RAM to even compile it ...
22:11:21linuxstbbertrik_: Not enough RAM on the device?
22:11:56bertrik_linuxstb, for now I'm running purely from IRAM
22:12:26linuxstbWhy is that? Could you put the bss in DRAM?
22:13:05bertrik_maybe, but I'm not even sure DRAM is set up properly
22:14:26linuxstbThe nano2g bootloader does that - see (it's a simple change).
22:15:03linuxstbbertrik_: How big is the LCD? Could you just use a smaller than real size framebuffer?

22:20:46pixelmatomers: saw your question but got occupied with something else. I don't think it matters much but if you think those actions could appear somewhere else too it is nicer to have them in the platform files for easier reuse and for more consistency (as the other core actions got their part in the manual too there)
22:20:59linuxstbbertrik_: The only change there I think was to put bss in DRAM... So obviously that isn't working for you.
22:21:41pixelmaUnhelpful: is pictureflow really using core actions or only ones that were made "after" the core actions?
22:21:46linuxstbTheSeven: Will the USB stuff be disabled when you commit?
22:22:28tomerspixelma: I chose this method since indeed this was the only place where I thought they could use, and I didn't want to trash these platform files with so many actions. I guess I did the right decision...

22:27:28saratogahow much memory does the nano2g have?
22:27:40TheSeven32MB DRAM + 176KB IRAM
22:27:51linuxstbI still think it would be sensible to not enable it by default, but give people chance to test, just in case of unexpected problems (like the NAND power-management caused)
22:28:31TheSevenas long as you won't plug it, there's not much that will change
22:29:20saratogapost a test build in the forums, wait a week or two, then enable it would be my preference
22:29:40*TheSeven still wonders why 3 people are having trouble with the nand stuff, one of them having the same chip that i have, but not others
22:30:49saratogahuh Nano2Gs are cheapish on ebay, i might pick one up
22:32:05TheSevenissues left: 1. nand powermanagement, 2. that pcm quirk for people who don't like their ipod sounding like a dirty vinyl record, 3. usb testing, 4. performance testing and improvements, 5. power management improvements
22:32:24linuxstb6. clickwheel acceleration
22:32:49TheSevenoh yes, that also needs some calibration, i already noticed that
22:33:05TheSevenwhich points me to another one: battery lifetime calibration
22:33:23linuxstbsaratoga: I don't think a test build is needed - the active nano2g users (i.e. people likely to test) seem to be compiling themselves.
22:33:57topiki haven't updated my nano 2g since r23156 which has worked great
22:34:05topikwill try recent changes tomorrow
22:34:20tomersI see all over the code that an instance of 'struct screen' is sometimes called 'display' and sometimes 'screen'. Don't you think this is a bit confusing? Should we have some sort of convention for this?
22:34:35TheSeventopik: beware that we broke the PCM driver, which will now sound like dirty vinyl :-P
22:34:51linuxstbTheSeven: "we" ? ;)
22:34:58topikonly weird thing is the volume
22:34:59TheSevenI'm working on a fix for that :-D
22:35:07TheSevenwhat's up with the volume?
22:35:16topikon my fuze -15db is the same as -35db on the nano2g
22:35:39linuxstbSo the fuze is broken ;)
22:35:42TheSevenoh, interesting
22:35:59topiki have no 3rd device to compare against
22:36:22AlexPThe volume control is relative to line level
22:36:51TheSevenAlexP: line level being defined by several manufacturers like they like it to be?
22:36:58topikif that's configurable, i never touched that on either device
22:37:03AlexPTheSeven: So it seems :)
22:37:13*TheSeven will do some measurements about that tomorrow
22:37:44AlexPtopik: My point is, that AIUI (and I could be wrong) the volume is relative to the line out level of the hardware - this can be different between hardware
22:38:16topikfair enough, but shouldn't rockbox try to correct for the difference?
22:38:19TheSevenlinuxstb: do you know how the wmcodec works, if levels above 0dB can clip?
22:38:26 Nick bluebroth3r is now known as bluebrother (n=dom@rockbox/developer/bluebrother)
22:38:27topikso -20db is the same level on all devices?
22:39:11AlexPIt is relative to line level
22:39:20AlexPSo you know when distortion will occur
22:39:30saratogayou can't really correct for different amplifier powers
22:39:59linuxstbTheSeven: Yes, I think it will.
22:40:00topikit's not a problem, just an observation
22:40:18topiki am very excited about rockbox on both my players
22:40:25linuxstbbluebrother: What's the status of beastpatcher? Is it ready for release on Windows?
22:40:29TheSevenI would nevertheless suggest to at least keep the 0dB setting around 1V, so that externally connected stuff also won't clip.
22:41:32AlexP0 dB should be non-clipping with no dsp
22:41:42saratogano DAP can go that high though
22:41:53saratogaIIRC the AMS sansas max out around 150mV
22:42:16topikshame there seems little chance for my meizu m6 to join my other aging players as rockboxed
22:42:18TheSevenI'll check tomorrow, but I think the ipods can go that high
22:42:23 Quit Grahack ("Leaving.")
22:43:02bluebrotherlinuxstb: well, I haven't thought about what's needed to qualify as end-user ready. It can install the beasts bootloader and install a nk.bin with our bootloader.
22:43:21bluebrotherthere's still this issue with some beasts rejecting a single bootloader installation
22:43:36bluebrotherand installing dual-boot requires using a command line switch.
22:43:39linuxstbThat can just be documented as a "known issue" though.
22:44:47bluebrothersure, if we consider that good enough.
22:45:34bluebrotheroh, there is one issue I haven't figured: on linux the beast reboots once you installed the bootloader. On Windows it doesn't −− it reboots once you disconnect USB.
22:45:49*linuxstb can remember the initial "ipod_fw" way to install on an ipod - if we supported that, we can support the beast...
22:46:07bluebrotherwhich shouldn't be an issue for beastpatcher itself, but might cause issues once it's in rbutil
22:46:18saratogaissues are what make a port unstable, I saw write them up in the wiki and let people try it out
22:46:18n1sI'd really like to have the beast as supported :)
22:46:23bluebrotherhmm, that's indeed a point :)
22:46:33bluebrothern1s: me too ;-)
22:46:46saratogamaybe it'll encourage more people to work on the beast
22:46:54linuxstbWe need to stop talking about it and do it though...
22:47:16bluebrotherdo we have an officially released bootloader for the beast? I've always used svn.
22:47:17linuxstbDoes beastpatcher compile as a single .exe now on Windows?
22:47:25linuxstbNo, there's never been an official bootloader binary
22:47:30bluebrotherlinuxstb: yes, if you build it with VS2005
22:48:03linuxstbDoes it have the bootloader embedded?
22:48:09n1sso we just need to release the bootloader, beastpatcher and rbutil, anything else?
22:48:13*linuxstb forgets what it does, even though he wrote it....
22:48:23bluebrotherbtw, I was thinking about an embedded dll approach. Just don't link against it but load it later using LoadLibrary. That way we could also build it with MinGW / cygwin.
22:48:39***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
22:48:49saratogafixing or deleting this page would be nice:
22:48:52AlexPmanual is there, it just needs the links (and probably an explanation of single vs dual) - although we could go for dual by defualt and then let people who want single do it manually
22:48:52bluebrotherlinuxstb: you can build it with or without embedded bootloader, like ipodpatcher.
22:49:08linuxstbStep 1 would seem to be to release a bootloader - can someone with a beast build current svn, and call it "1.0" ? I think that's just done with "make VERSION=1.0"

22:50:43n1sbluebrother: could rbutil give the user a choice of dual/single?
22:50:46saratogai think the info page is more up to date
22:51:05saratogathen the info instructions should be removed or depreciated and then copied over
22:51:22linuxstbThere's lots of stuff on the info page that shouldn't be there - binary downloads, patched Toshiba software etc etc
22:51:27bluebrothern1s: sure. There's a different issue though: rbutil requires a mount point, but until the bootloader is installed and the beast rebooted there is none.
22:51:41AlexPbluebrother: I'll need to check, but I think it can be extracted from the exe
22:51:41AlexPI thought the install page was more up to date
22:51:52AlexPIt is just missing e.g. beastpatcher as it wasn't finished
22:51:56saratogaIMO thats biggest thing to do, even unofficial (i.e. linked in the test forum) binaries are fine as long as there are clear directions saying how to use them
22:52:10bluebrotherwhich means, especially for automated install, we need some means of rescanning the system for devices. Which in turn means we need better autodetection (which we need anyway)
22:52:19AlexPThe install page is virtually there
22:52:34topikthe test forum is a great tool imo. it made me test a lot on my fuze

22:52:43n1sbluebrother: but if it requires a mountpoint, how can it install the bootloader at all?
22:52:47linuxstbbluebrother: I don't think we should worry about rbutil - beastpatcher will be easy enough, and it will never be one of the most popular targets.
22:52:57linuxstb(but that's up to you of course...)
22:53:32bluebrothern1s: well, the bootloader is installed in MTP mode (we can't access the beast in UMS mode when the OF is run), and after a reboot the bootloader usb mode gives us MTP
22:53:43*linuxstb wonders if any beast owners are volunteering to build a 1.0 bootloader....
22:53:48AlexPbluebrother: - It is an exe in an iso in a zip
22:53:51AlexPlinuxstb: Sure
22:54:27AlexPlinuxstb: I suspect however that test it is implicit in that :)
22:54:27linuxstbAlexP: As I said, just "make VERSION=1.0" should do it. And make a note of which SVN revision you've used, so we can tag it.
22:54:33linuxstbAlexP: Yes... ;)
22:54:37n1sbluebrother: yes, but installing a single or dual bootloader should require the same access
22:54:44AlexPlinuxstb: Doing it now

22:56:17pixelmaI thought the issue with the Gigabeat S was that the bootloader installation didn't work the same on some units (or some working with the dual boot bootloader and some don't or so) - or has this been resolved?

23:00:59linuxstbbluebrother: What does beastpatcher need? The bootloader.bin?
23:01:06bluebrotherworks fine for me too, at least when installing as dualboot
23:01:20AlexPah right :)
23:01:27bluebrotherplus libmtp.a and libusb.a on linux
23:01:29AlexPwell, that single boot nk.bin works fine here
23:01:46linuxstbbluebrother: Then it's probably worth putting both on the download server... (the single-boot nk.bin and bootloader.bin)
23:01:57*linuxstb pings Bagder
23:02:35*bluebrother has build r23249 too :)
23:03:31bluebrotherok, so we're releasing a 1.0 bootloader now? Should I go for building a beastpatcher.exe with that?
23:03:37AlexPbluebrother: copycat! :)
23:03:48AlexPI don't see why not
23:04:01*linuxstb neither
23:04:18bluebrotherAlexP: I'm claiming being first −− my network had a short dropout :P
23:04:23linuxstbStep 1 - release bootloader and beastpatcher ; Step 2 - update documentation; Step 3 - promote to unstable and profit.
23:04:23AlexPhehe :)
23:04:30*bluebrother prepares reboot
23:05:16bluebrotheranyone willing to build the linux binary? I would need to build libmtp first

23:11:07AlexPI can't test it as I no longer have the OF
23:11:21*AlexP goes to do a bit of compressing too
23:11:57bluebrotherAlexP: you can simply replace the nk.bin file on the other partition. At least it seemed to work when I played around with that a while back.
23:12:09AlexPbluebrother: I did - the bootloader is fine
23:12:20AlexPbluebrother: I mean I can't test beastpatcher
23:12:41linuxstbIt works fine for me "[ERR] No device found"
23:12:42bluebrotherAlexP: well, you could put an OF instead and then go through the process of reinstalling ;-)
23:13:11linuxstbbluebrother: And risk things not working? ;)
23:14:06AlexPbluebrother: Yeah, I *could* ... :)
23:14:44bluebrotherAlexP: ;-)
23:17:03linuxstbCould someone put these in a nice directory hierarchy for Bagder/Zagor to put on the download server? I'm guessing we want them in /bootloader/gigabeat-s/ ?
23:17:42linuxstbOr /bootloader/toshiba/gigabeat-s/ (and move gigabeat)
23:18:35AlexPDoes beastpatcher work on Mac?
23:20:47bluebrotherhmm, I haven't added the creation of bootimg.c to the VS project. Ok, that can wait until after the release
23:21:25AlexPHow does tagging work?
23:22:41linuxstbSee the UsingSVN wiki page.
23:24:09AlexPSo we want bootloader_gigabeat-s_v1 I guess?

23:24:52bluebrothere200 bootloader?
23:25:12AlexPI didn't do that in the checkout

23:28:10bluebrotherAlexP: it wouldn't make much sense having to checkout tags/ first, would it? Could become quite large ;-)
23:28:22AlexPtrue :)
23:29:58bluebrothergnah. beastpatcher works fine when build as debug executable but not when build as release. Seems I've missed that before :(
23:31:52AlexPbeastpatcher here is v1 too, so it can be tagged as both right (as in the accidental e200 one above)?
23:32:50bluebrotherI'd say so
23:33:22pixelmaAlexP: for plugins the 3 column button tables is a bit weird on the M3 as usually only remote buttons are mapped (maybe a quit here and there)... maybe not much of a difference to remote buttons on the H100 - just the other way around
23:33:49AlexPOK, let's try again :)
23:34:11linuxstbAlexP: To answer your earlier question, beastpatcher _should_ work on Mac (libusb works there, so libMTP _should), but no-one has managed to get it to compile.

23:57:45saratogaclip didn't seem to mind having the beast bootloader installed, I guess since it was in UMS mode
