#rockbox log for 2010-02-15

00:00:21pamaurygevaerts: On some targets, perhaps ram doesn't include bin
00:00:35gevaertspamaury: in these calculations, it always does
00:00:54*pamaury shuts up
00:01:44gevaertsthat's inaccurate for rombox, but it's true for all other cases
00:01:51mtBuschel: I think we should disregard joint-stereo for the time being. If someone finds out a sample that's playing incorrectly they might tell us.
00:01:56pixelmaJdGordon: the splash shows
00:03:01 Quit ender` (Quit: Anyone who thinks people lack originality should watch them folding roadmaps.)
00:03:31pixelmaand I can listen to the radio. If I then want to stop the radio I get a "Panic - Stack underflow... viewportmanager", not sure if it means something with that change
00:03:38amiconngevaerts: 'ram' isn't necessarily max
00:04:07amiconnIf some code change increases binsize but gets rid of a static buffer, 'ram' could even be negative while bin is positive
00:04:57*gevaerts spots confusion
00:05:34gevaertsI meant the total size, not the delta
00:05:44mthmm .. I guess the 2-bit shift for higher accuracy could be folded into the imlt step and done for free, on arm at least. (don't know about cf)
00:06:07pamaurygevaerts: we are interesting in the delta right there
00:06:13gevaertsyes, I know
00:06:16 Quit antil33t ()
00:06:26*gevaerts tries to find something to blame
00:07:44gevaertsI think we either should show the ram-delta, or both
00:08:03 Quit fml (Quit: CGI:IRC)
00:08:15Buschelmt: JS is at least 160 lines of untested code then
00:10:13mtI don't see a problem with that for now at least, until we have samples to test on.
00:10:57Buschelmt: you are right
00:12:24Unhelpfulamiconn: maybe it would make more sense to support either endianness in the DB tool, and only native on lowmem targets?
00:12:58pixelmaJdGordon: fun fun, the blank screen issue magically went away (after reverting the changes) but the recording info doesn't work and the peakmeter updates too slowly. If I understand correctly, then the prerecording time should show up instead if it is set and if I start the recording, the recording time should be displayed there - but the peakmeter stays there no matter what
00:12:59amiconnThat would require the tool to know the target's endianness
00:13:07gevaertshm, how about an endianness conversion plugin?
00:13:13amiconnHmm, is database creation part of rbutil these days?
00:13:27domonoky-r +e
00:13:42Unhelpfulamiconn: it wouldn't be that difficult to have a list of targets and their bytesex in the tool, would it.?
00:14:15domonokyif we had it in rbutil, target depended endianess wouldnt be a problem.
00:14:15pamauryGetting rid of endianess support in tagcache would probably simplify the code
00:14:20amiconnThat part is easy. SH1 and coldfire are big endian, arm and mips are little endian
00:14:40amiconnBut the tool needs to know what target it's creating the db for
00:14:56pamauryA plugin can do it
00:15:00pixelmaalso - if I understand correctly and if it works, it will just show the prerecording time setting which is different from what is there now and which I prefer much (counting up as time starts until the set time is reached and so you know how much of it is really available)
00:15:18Unhelpfulamiconn: right, why not have an option for that... and it can just map to −−endian [big/little] internally.
00:15:24amiconnThat kinda defeats the purpose of an external tool
00:15:43Unhelpfulpamaury: a plugin might run too late (if you load the DB before fixing it)
00:15:46amiconnUnhelpful: That's why I asked whether it's part of rbutil these days
00:15:54amiconnRbutil already does target detection
00:16:14*rasher doesn't see quite why it defeats the purpose of an external tool
00:16:30Unhelpfuljust add −−endian to the tool, then support running the tool from rbutil?
00:17:30Buschelmt: did you ever profile the different steps in the decoder parts which happen before the synthesis (e.g. decodeTonal, decodeSpectrum, addTonal)? iqmf and imdct should be well known and already were/are under optimization.
00:17:39pamauryWhat about tagcache calling a plugin to change endianness if required ?
00:19:10mtQuestion for CF experts : Can shift operations be done without consuming any extra cycle when folded with a load or a store for example ?
00:19:28mtBuschel: No, I didn't profile it.
00:19:38mtamiconn: thanks
00:20:22amiconnShifts are never free on coldfire (except a few special shift amounts in emac operations)
00:20:27 Quit domonoky (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
00:21:04Unhelpfularm can't shift on load/store, either. ;)
00:21:16pamauryUnhelpful: what do you think of ^^ ?
00:22:08Unhelpfulpamaury: it seems a bit silly to me, tbh... and potentially fail-tastic. :/
00:22:13mtUnhelpful: Bad memory ! :(
00:22:39Unhelpfuli'm not sure absolutely everywhere the DB accessed from is safe to run a plugin from
00:22:48pamauryUnhelpful: yeah but it can free memory. It's silly to have support for both endianness also ;)
00:22:55Unhelpfulespecially if you, say, only use the DB to be able to run pictureflow.
00:23:07Unhelpfulmt: you should replace it!
00:24:00pamauryUnhelpful: I don't understand. You can access the db directly, using open/read/write/close to change some endianness
00:24:59Unhelpfulpamaury: yes, but i'm saying that if a plugin is the first thing to access the DB (via the DB functions), what happens then? or do we run this plugin on each storage unplug or startup?
00:27:05pamauryUnhelpful: I didn't think about that problem. Perhaps on each unplug or startup yes. Not sure it's the best solution though.
00:27:23amiconnAlso rockbox has no file locking. So if both the plugin and the database thread access the file at the same time,
00:27:26 Join AndyI [0] (~pasha_int@
00:27:51amiconnthings will become seriously messed up
00:29:45pamauryThe plugin would call a special db function like tagcache_lock
00:31:30pamauryAnyway, either you support endianness on target or not. If you do, that's either in the core or either in a plugin. The hird solution is to have a piece of code in tagcache that's always modifies the db files in place to fit the endianness. Thus the tagcache code would use the target endianness. That could be a sensible solution
00:31:56pamauryNot sure it would free code, though

00:37:34saratogamt: joint stereo is rarely used for ATRAC3
00:37:46saratogafor some reason Sony decided that only the lowest bitrate should use it
00:37:55saratogaIIRC that is 64kbps ?
00:39:26saratogaBuschel, mt: I did profile ATRAC3 when it was first ported
00:39:45saratogaIIRC the tonal stuff took no time at all because its rarely used, the other parts added up to something like 20MHz on ARM
00:39:52mtsaratoga: I don't remember the bitrates
00:39:58saratogabut i didn't take notes so i could be remembering wrong
00:40:02stripwaxsaratoga - why can't liba52 use the imdct (why can it only use the fft part?)
00:40:14saratogastripwax: it can but its a bit harder
00:40:17 Quit shaggy-h (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
00:40:23saratogaa52 short blocks are done together in pairs
00:40:43saratogaand the current codec already folds the windowing into the post rotation, so that needs rewriting too
00:41:07 Quit Sajber^ (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
00:41:11saratogaIMO its not worth the effort just yet, the current liba52 code is actually very efficient
00:41:19stripwaxyep, I imagine it is
00:43:04Buschelsaratoga: if the tonal stuff is not used much, most of the decoding time must be spent in decodeSpectrum
00:43:10stripwaxsaratoga - I tried rewriting the various TRANSFORM macros to use ldmia/stmia but it doesn't seem to make a whole lot of difference
00:43:35stripwaxand I don't *think* they're very inefficient (although gcc might have put lots of crap elsewhere to counteract the benefit, who knows)
00:43:56saratogabasically to do the short block efficiently you need to do both blocks at the same time since they're interleaved: block 1-sample1, block2-sample1, ...
00:44:31saratogaBuschel: i think thats what i concluded but my memory is foggy
00:44:49saratogai remember thinking it wasn't worth the time since then the filterbank took 3-4x as much cpu time
00:44:52 Quit efyx_ (Remote host closed the connection)
00:45:18saratogastripwax: did you ever try benchmarking with the transform macros commented out?
00:45:25saratogai wonder how much time they really use
00:45:34 Quit bmbl (Quit: Bye!)
00:45:59stripwaxsaratoga - I haven't tried that, no. But - quite a lot, right? since the transform macros implement the fft steps?
00:46:17stripwaxyou comment them out, it means you comment out the butterflies and the twiddle multiplications
00:46:34stripwax(well, except fft4/fft8)
00:46:37JdGordonpixelma: excellent. thanks
00:46:43JdGordonthe panic is expected
00:46:56JdGordonand the peak meters not updating fast enough is an easy fix
00:46:56saratogaiirc fft4/8 took a large portion of the entire run time already
00:47:44 Part lead ("Leaving")
00:48:08saratogastripwax: any thought about when you want to merge the mdct branch?
00:48:10stripwaxsaratoga - probably, since you're guaranteed to use at least those steps; it's only the large fft sizes that end up using the transform macros
00:48:26saratogawell the large transform sizes are the only ones most codecs use
00:48:34saratogablocks less then 512 points are quite rare
00:48:47stripwaxsaratoga - well, it now compiles on coldfire at least .. But I'm not in a position to write optimised coldfire. Perhaps merge when the coldfire is also faster than trunk?
00:48:56freddybShould there be #WARNING in the clickable background patch if there's no button map defined?
00:49:13saratogafrom the tests before CF was probably within 1MHz of trunk
00:49:20saratogaso its almost there

00:49:46stripwaxI also want to get rid of the terrible revtab; but haven't come up with a good way yet.
00:49:58saratogahave you worked out the init functions you want?
00:50:08pamauryUnhelpful: do you want me to try something for tagcache endianness ? To see if we can win something
00:50:08saratogamdct_global is now useless i believe
00:50:18Buschelmt, saratoga: we can forget about addTonalComponents -> needs only 0.1 MHz
00:50:19stripwaxFeel free to merge now if you like :) (The extra memory requirement of revtab *might* mean some targets won't compile?)
00:50:29pixelmaJdGordon: I wouldn't call it excellent
00:50:39saratogaBuschel: sounds good
00:50:40stripwaxsaratoga - you need to init the revtab. That's the only init function you need.
00:50:48 Quit sudoman (Quit: sudoman)
00:51:00stripwaxmdct_init_global is indeed useless now.
00:51:03saratogais it worth conveting the revtab to a constant in a header?
00:51:09stripwax(hadn't realised I'd left it in)
00:51:26stripwaxsaratoga - maybe, but as we discussed it's 8KB.

00:51:49stripwaxputting it in a header is a good idea actually, yeh.
00:51:54saratoga2the 512 revtab could be much smaller

00:52:52saratoga2bah stupid cgiirc, freenode's client needs to come back onlinne
00:53:09saratoga2stripwax: just put the small ones in IRAM and leave the rest in DRAM
00:53:25stripwaxso you have twice as much data?
00:53:33JdGordonpixelma: well, its alot better than a blank display
00:53:48saratoga2stripwax: its only 2x as much for wma, for everything else the waste is much smaller
00:53:49stripwaxthe big table is a superset of the small table. not sure what you'd gain by splitting it up into a big table and a small table.
00:54:09***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
00:54:23saratoga2for tremor is something like a 16KB table and a 2KB waste i think
00:54:37perfectdrug_if anyone needs testing for coldfire I'm happy to help out btw

00:55:19 Nick dmbq is now known as dmb (~Dmb@unaffiliated/dmb)
00:55:31stripwaxsaratoga2 - for tremor, which table are you proposing putting into iram?
00:56:01pixelmaJdGordon: I don't know why it didn't work before and suddenly does, the only thing I changed in the meantime was changing the statusbar to the inbuilt one but even selecting an sbs again now doesn't bring the blank screen back. Maybe you need another tester.(another change is that I have the bmp viewer plugin patch applied but I doubt it is related)
00:57:43saratoga2stripwax: just want the table used for the 512 point mdct in IRAM so its fast for the codecs that need it
00:57:56saratoga2i don't think it will help tremor but it will also barely use any extra memory
00:59:12saratoga2although if you can get rid of it entirely thats even better
00:59:12stripwaxsaratoga - go for it. I think iram usage is fairly tight for tremor but see what happens. I've made the chaneg to remove mdct_init_global by the way - but svn commit seems down.
01:00:29stripwaxI think getting rid of it entirely would require changing the butterflies somewhat, so that they work in a regular bitreverse indexing scheme, rather than the current complex mixed digit-reverse
01:00:39saratoga2stripwax: svn is up is just very slow due to the cia bot timeout
01:00:51saratoga2it'll eventually commit just let it sit for 5 minutes or so while it waits for the time out
01:01:12stripwaxindeed - seems like it's just worked.
01:01:15saratoga2how much time does the bit reverse actually use?
01:01:22saratoga2it seems ugly but if its fast maybe its not an issue
01:01:47perfectdrug_saratoga2: what file should i test, wma_192.wma again?
01:01:59saratoga2perfectdrug_: thats fine
01:02:10saratoga2ac3, wma and vorbis all use the new code
01:02:43saratoga2stripwax: if you're planning to remove the last init function, then we should wait to change the other codecs over to the new mdct
01:07:01stripwaxsaratoga2 - it's ugly but probably very fast
01:07:54stripwaxso maybe leave it (you can put it precomputed and in iram, but not change anything?)

03:45:00karashatait's telling me a comment isn't a valid theme setting
03:47:06saratoga2djoume: did you upgrade the hard drive on your player?
03:48:43saratoga2then you shouldn't need to change anything
03:48:47djoumeit's the default 30GB
03:48:58saratoga2are you sure you installed the right build in the first place?
03:49:13djoumeI used the gui automatic install

03:50:04saratoga2you could try downloading a new build from the website and extracting it to your player
03:50:16saratoga2are you sure no one else swapped the disk on your player?
03:51:08djoumeno I'm not 100% sure, I just bought it "second hand" (but like new).
03:51:21djoumeI don't think it has been upgraded because the disk is still 30GB
03:51:37saratoga2you may need to come back and ask someone who knows the ipods better

05:59:18S_a_i_n_tis there a chance it's actually a 32MB model? the 64MB build wouldn;t work in that case...would it?

09:39:25*notByan just had an idea
09:39:41notByanWPS's should be able to know whether or not the backlight is on
09:39:53notByanthat way, they could change colors for the proper situation..
09:40:00JdGordonS_a_i_n_t: yeah, giving the plugins a simple API to load a font is on the todo list
09:40:01notByanmy WPS is hard as hell to read without the backlight
09:40:56S_a_i_n_tnotByan: (generally speaking) wouldn;t it be more feasable to alter the theme to be more readable in that case?
09:41:48S_a_i_n_tI just can't really see a purpose on changing colours if the backlight is on/off
09:42:01notByangenerally? IDK. But, in my case my WPS is lightist blue on black
09:42:08S_a_i_n_tone easy to read scheme seems a lot better to me.
09:42:13notByanso, it's easy on the eyes when using it
09:42:24notByanbut, when the backlight is off.. it's hardly visible at all
09:42:34 Quit bob77 (Quit: zzzz)
09:42:36S_a_i_n_teasy on the eyes seems debatable if its "hard as hell to read"
09:42:51notByanit's only hard to read without the backlight..
09:42:57notByanotherwise it's very easy to read..
09:43:23notByanbut, the constrast is purposefully lower, so that it doesn't blind you when the light is on >_>
09:43:58notByanI do admit.. this seems to be special case.. I doubt many people use a WPS like mine you'd like to change the *contrast* if backlight is on/off?
09:44:15notByanI wonder how hard it'd be to hack into
09:44:24S_a_i_n_tand not the colour?
09:44:30 Quit kramer3d (Quit: Leaving)
09:45:29JdGordonthe WPS cant change the colours, you have to use conditional viewports which means a very big wps if you do that
09:45:48S_a_i_n_tnotByan: the easiest way to do this would be to have two .cfg's you can easily switch between.
09:45:48notByanS_a_i_n_t: err.. how often do you use devices without backlights on? if the background is black and the foreground is white.. full contrast, it's still not going to as readable as white background and black foreground
09:47:01S_a_i_n_tyou could also make conditional viewports that switch schemes between am/pm if you were keen
09:47:09*S_a_i_n_t debates trying that himself...
09:47:10notByanerrr... the idea that I am going to touch the buttons.. which turns the backlight back on.. to switch to a differen cfg.. so I can wait for it to turn off, that'd be silly
09:47:39notByanI thought about that idea too.. but I'd rather just adjust brightness based on daytime
09:48:03S_a_i_n_tstart coding ;D
09:48:35notByanthe problem with that idea is the fact that my time is never right.. cause my battery is so poor
09:49:10notByanbetter more practical idea: rockbox driver aquires time, so anytime it's connected it syncs the time?
09:49:42S_a_i_n_tdoes it not do that already?
09:49:47S_a_i_n_twhat target do you have?
09:49:58notByanipod 5.5G

09:50:25S_a_i_n_tnever set the time once
09:50:29S_a_i_n_talways correct

09:50:47notByanas long as it has some left in it.. the RTC on the ipod will keep time
09:50:54notByanbut my battery dies.. alot..
09:50:54S_a_i_n_twell...there's no software fix for a shitty battery :P
09:51:18notByanbut there is for it losing time all the time >_>
09:51:33S_a_i_n_tthere is?
09:51:49notByanas I said.. whenever I plug it in.. it syncs the time >_>
09:52:11notByanevery time I charge it, I plug it into the computer.. so, after each time it dies. the time would be fixed
09:52:27S_a_i_n_tit should do that already, pluhg it in under the OF
09:52:33S_a_i_n_tit should sync the time then
09:52:47notByanerr.. but I don't use the OF?
09:52:57S_a_i_n_tapparently..RB doesn't, but I was fairly sure it did.
09:54:24S_a_i_n_tyou could plug it in under OF once in a while to set the time...if its that big an issue...FYI the OF actually draws 500mA from the USB, but (atm) Rockbox only draws 100mA for the ipods
09:54:36S_a_i_n_tso you charge will be a lot quicker under OF anyway
09:54:57notByan90% of the time, charging and playing are one in the same
09:55:04notByanso, thats not super useful for me
09:55:17notByanbut, as you said, it seems rockbox supports.. at least under linux
09:55:31S_a_i_n_tcharging/playing+possibly not charging at all...and probably why your batery is messed up
09:55:48S_a_i_n_tas it only draws 100mA, and your target needs a lot of juice
09:56:33notByanno, it was messed up before rockbox
09:57:04notByanwhy on earth does it only draw 100mA anyway?
09:57:36S_a_i_n_tnot sure *why* exactly, just that that's how it is...
09:57:49S_a_i_n_tyou're welcome to fix it :P

09:58:21S_a_i_n_tapparently quite hard, as several people have been trying to fix it for some time now IIRC
09:59:03S_a_i_n_tit is on purpose...its because rockbox has no way of knowing whether or not it *can* craw the full 500mA
09:59:03notByanI also wonder if thats why it seems like my USB charger things chargers so much faster
09:59:17S_a_i_n_tie. it may be in a hub, and not in a high-power port
09:59:49notByanerr.. I'm no expert, but doesn't it request as much as it likes, and whatever it gets, it gets?
10:01:12S_a_i_n_tI'm no expert either...but until it knows how much it can get, or where its coming from...its safest to assume the lowest amount I believe.

12:34:49Tornegevaerts: but it could conceivably be related to my previous ATA change
12:35:02TorneI am inclined to think not, though, since the change to the behaviour of reads by the unification should hav ebeen zero
12:36:04gevaertsmaybe the multisector one?
12:37:27Tornethe unification only changed the behaviour of reads (intentionally, at least)

12:39:11Tornesince he seems to be able to do it reproducably
12:39:25Tornewe experimented with different album art before and it looked like it was related to AA rescaling
12:39:30Tornebut the results didn't make sense.
12:39:44Tornehe was using bitmap AA scaled to the exact size the skin needed, which the bmp loader doesn't yield while loading
12:39:59Torneand it went away if he used a different size, so that hte scaler could yield

13:53:14S_a_i_n_t_from what I gathered from the description from ebay, bob77's iPod is actually a 30GB video, with a small form factor 80GB HD in it.
13:53:57GodEaterso not the same drive as in the original 80GB at all then
13:54:06S_a_i_n_t_whatever combination it actually is...RB doesn;t seem to like it.
13:54:07GodEaterand therefore less likely to be as fundamentally broken
13:54:46S_a_i_n_t_well, it was called the 80GB *slim* (never heard of it either)
13:54:56*bob77 would like to upgrade to 30GB
13:55:00S_a_i_n_t_and boasted being the same size as the 30GB
13:55:08S_a_i_n_t_so I figure that's what was done.
13:55:49S_a_i_n_t_bob77: *upgrade* to 30GB? isn;t that a DOWNgrade?
13:56:30TheSevenupgrade in functionality :-)
13:56:35linuxstbbob77: I think it depends on whether you have the "5g" or "5.5g" ipod. The difference is that the apple firmware uses a 2048-byte sector size on the 5.5g. ipodpatcher should report the logical sector size used by the Apple firmware.
13:57:22bob77I check on apple, my serial ends with V9R so 5.5
13:58:03linuxstbI wouldn't always trust that, especially with refurbished models. But then it sounds like you should use a 2048-byte logical sector size, which Rockbox should be happy with.
13:58:07bob77For some reason I reckon this is 80GB mobo, in a slim case, and slim hdd
13:58:24*GodEater is willing to bet it isn't
13:58:24S_a_i_n_t_*this* is why refurbs can suck ass sometimes....

13:58:39Tornei.e. from the disk itself
13:58:50TheSevenand what is it that it doesn't like about it?
13:59:00Torneit's bigger than the value the ata driver is compiled for

13:59:05S_a_i_n_t_wont boot
13:59:06TheSevenbecause it doesn't match the SECTOR_SIZE define?
13:59:19linuxstbBecause it doesn't match the MAX_SECTOR_SIZE define (IIUC)
13:59:40TorneMAX_SECTOR_SIZE needs to be 4096 or more, yes
13:59:45S_a_i_n_t_JdGordon tried to edit that for him, and sent him the builds...but it *still* didn't boot.
13:59:50Torneer, MAX_PHYS_SECTOR_SIZE
14:00:03Tornewith the same message?
14:00:11*TheSeven doesn't get what that whole emulation layer is for and why we can't just use 4096-byte sectors directly like we do with 2048 on nano2g
14:00:16Tornebecause that's totally impossible, right? :)
14:00:28S_a_i_n_t_not like I was there or anything
14:00:39Tornethe condition where it panics with that, it prints the same value that it compared to
14:00:48Torneso if MAX_PHYS_SECTOR_SIZE was 4096 that panic really can't happen
14:01:01Torneso I would ugess that JdGordon or the user made a mistake
14:01:06GodEaterTheSeven: that layer is there because our FAT code always assumed 512 bytes sectors
14:01:16GodEaterand no-one could be bothered to rewrite it to be more celver
14:01:23GodEaterit was easier to hack the ATA layer
14:01:46linuxstbTheSeven: One difference is that _every_ nano2g has 2048-byte sectors, and SECTOR_SIZE is a constant.
14:01:52S_a_i_n_t_weird thing is....*apparently* (again), the "big-disk" builds don;t work something is going wrong with someone's info somewhere.

14:02:36bob77they do boot just flaky as
14:02:38Tornethere is no other way it can possibly occur
14:02:40S_a_i_n_t_both of them *actually* did specify 4096
14:02:59GodEaterS_a_i_n_t_: he downloaded the source for each to check?
14:03:16Tornebob77: wait, the large disk builds do boot?
14:03:19S_a_i_n_t_well..running off the .diff from the thread
14:04:07GodEaterdefine "flaky as" then please
14:04:29bob77I had to press select 3 4 times to register
14:05:05Tornethat sounds like the disk isn't big enough to prop up the logic board properly :)
14:05:12bob77and check again and again on apple firmware the hardwares fine
14:05:20*GodEater loves it when we're debugging the wrong plroblem
14:05:30Tornewell, then i would guess that the build you used is old/crappy :)
14:05:42Torneand that you should try the latest svn but with MAX_PHYS_SECTOR_SIZE changed to 4096
14:05:53Tornesince the unsupported builds posted there don't ge tupdated very much
14:05:56S_a_i_n_t_Torne: I had that idea too..but it failed when he said OF runs fine.
14:06:33S_a_i_n_t_*logic board unsupported/supported incorrectly that is.
14:07:39GodEaterI'd also go with a 30GB ipod build until you're certain the extra 32MB are there
14:07:51 Join panni_ [0] (
14:07:56bob77JdGordon tried patching latest build with MAX_PHYS_ and it still the same panic
14:08:20S_a_i_n_t_he did, yes...but for the 80GB
14:08:27S_a_i_n_t_I have a feeling its a 30
14:08:33GodEaterthat wouldn't cause that panic though
14:08:34Torneas I just said: if it panics on start with that message then the build does not hava MAX_PHYS_SECTOR_SIZE defined properly
14:08:38TorneEither you or he made a mistake
14:09:09Torneusing the 64mb build on a 32mb logic board doesn't cause problems until you start buffering or load a plugin/codec
14:09:54bob77atm I'm listening flacs with 64MB large-disk build
14:10:05S_a_i_n_t_I'd of built this guy a build to check out myself by now...but I'm reinstalling CygWin atm...and the mirror is *crawling* (slow as)
14:10:18Tornebob77: then it's a 64mb logic board.
14:10:37Torneotherwise that would definately not be working :)
14:10:46GodEaterwell, not for long anyway
14:10:48Torneso the only problem you have with that build is that the buttons don't respond reliably?
14:10:51bob77I reckon so
14:11:05bob77I reckon so
14:11:13Torne"yes" would do, but hey
14:11:17S_a_i_n_t_...and scrolling *apparently*
14:11:19Tornethen you need to try the latest svn
14:11:29Tornewith the appropriate sector size change :)
14:11:33S_a_i_n_t_you said scrolling sucked too right bob77?
14:11:38Torneeither JdGordon did it wrong, or you installed it wrong
14:11:45bob77sorry, a bit laggy here
14:11:54Tornei would build you one but my build machine isn't accessible atm
14:11:59linuxstbS_a_i_n_t_: Doesn't that come under "buttons don't respond reliably"
14:12:51S_a_i_n_t_probably, but with definitions like "flaky as", it pays to check ;D
14:13:11*GodEater is building a MAX_PHYS = 4096 build right

15:58:09biengoHi, I'm stuck in an infinite loop with a theme upload
15:58:31biengofirst it asks to remove a font included in the rockbox install
15:58:55biengothen it murks that a specified font is missing
15:59:12Torneyou probably specified the font using a name that isn't the name in the rockbox font pack
15:59:46Tornewhat does your theme say for the font?
16:00:14biengofont: /.rockbox/fonts/14-Nimbus.fnt
16:01:48Tornehm, that should be ok.
16:02:01biengoI mean it did recognise that a font by that name should be included anyway,
16:02:04S_a_i_n_twell, that's in the font multifont breaking checkWPS?
16:04:27Torneaw, disappointingly the theme site only checks by filename
16:04:32biengoIt's in the default fonts, not the one in extras
16:05:01Tornerasher: can we get the theme site to detect themes that include fonts in the font pack even when they have been renamed? since that seems to happen quite a lot (Nimbus14 and so on)

16:49:14UnhelpfulTorne/AlexP/S_a_i_n_t: supported jpeg scalings are 1/8, 1/4, and 1/2. the jpeg loader will decode the file at the smallest size which is greater than or equal to the requested size, and the scaler will do the rest of the work. *Only* the imdct, some scaler work (due to having a smaller input size) and some small portion of entropy decode and dequantization are actually reduced.
16:51:44UnhelpfulThe huffman-coded image data must be decoded almost completely to skip the unneeded coefficients. JPEG uses huffman codes to encode lengths of coefficients, followed by the actual bits reperesenting the coefficient, which must be sign-extended and dequantized. sign-extension and dequantization are skipped, huffman decoding cannot be.
16:52:03Unhelpful..ugh, i've been listening to too much of the mdct_exp work. not imdct, idct. ;)
16:53:26Unhelpfulthe idct is significantly faster as it goes down in size - the 1/8 scaling consists of a right-shift.

18:54:49kugelJdGordon: can I specify a backdrop if yes: will it take additional space if it's the same as the wps one?
18:55:22kugelfor the tags, is there a reason to have upper case ones at all? %T* is also used for sme touchscreen tags
18:55:25JdGordon1yes %X and yes
18:56:02JdGordon1there isnt much reason to any of the capitlisation outside of %I,F,D
18:57:03JdGordon1I dont want to have a backdrop mess between skins, but if the wps and sbs, or fms and sbs use the same backdrop then they should use the same buffer
18:57:08JdGordon1not wps and fms htouhg
18:57:45kugelit seems more likely to me that fms and wps share the same though
18:58:19JdGordon1yes, but thats not something I want to add
18:58:26kugelbecause of?
18:58:26JdGordon1especially when we dont currently save the filenames
18:58:56JdGordon1skins are seperate
18:59:10dionoeayou could compare on load and dump one of the buffers if they're identical
18:59:21dionoea(that would be quite ugly)
18:59:32JdGordon1and any->sbs should only work if both are using the setting
18:59:50JdGordon1i.e not loading one manually with %X
19:00:09JdGordon1depending how its done, I could have my mind changed because it does waste alot of RAM
19:01:46kugela hash of the filename would be sufficient I guess
19:02:33JdGordon1and a get_backdrop_(int* hash, char* buffer, int screen) for each skin user?
19:03:31JdGordon1we could add a backdrop manager like the font manager in skins, but thats just as bad

19:13:01JdGordon_kugel: a posible gotcha with any backdriop manager... the sbs can change the backdrop on the fly, no other skins can
19:13:25JdGordon_which means if the sbs + wps both load the same filename with %X and then its changed manually, it would change both
19:14:11JdGordon_that might be something not worth worrying baout though

19:37:03kugeldomonoky: I meant multiple devices
19:37:37domonokykugel: ah, you think you can get it to multiple device in one Gsoc summer ?
19:37:40JdGordon__we need a simple tag (onlg the lines of %mp) with just "show nothing, show music stuff, show radio stuff, show rec stuff, etc"
19:37:41kugelJdGordon__: it should be fixed then. but it doesn't work well for lists when you want to show stuff of the last music screen
19:38:10kugelthat's what %cs should do
19:38:13S_a_i_n_tdo additional fonts have their own buffer, or do they steal from the skin/some other buffer?

19:39:06S_a_i_n_tHUGE wps :P
19:39:17JdGordon__disable the backdrop
19:39:21kugeldepends on whether sdl is ported already (or on whether it's prefered to implement native calls over sdl calls instead of porting to another device)
19:39:23JdGordon__that will let you load 9 fonts
19:39:36S_a_i_n_tthat's a big part of the WPS though
19:39:41kugelJdGordon__: what's the difference between your tag and %cs?
19:39:47S_a_i_n_tthe bloat comes from animation
19:40:16JdGordon__%cs loses track of the last screen when you are in the menu doesnt it?
19:41:21domonokykugel: i think the biggest part of Raap is to convert the sim to the target directory, so you get SDL/etc targets.
19:41:57*JdGordon__ agrees
19:42:16JdGordon__remove the SIMUKLATOR dependancy for a sdl build, and then worry about building for a real target

19:49:05B4gderwell, an app on a desktop OS might want resize

19:49:41gevaertsyes, but I think that that's a different market

20:59:06saratoga2since last year we couldn't fill our slots
20:59:17saratoga2but i'm at a loss for were to recruit
21:00:18JdGordon__well we need to come up with a good list of ideas
21:00:20 Join webguest90 [0] (
21:00:29JdGordon__and a proper interview/test plan
21:01:22saratoga2we have a partial list of ideas on the GSOC2010 page, but more would be nice
21:01:43webguest90egiste um metodo de rodar o rockbor no sansa c200v2 ou sansa c240 v2 ? e possivel passar link com mas explicações?
21:01:43tomersMaybe we should have a presentation that combines Rockbox and GSoC. We already have the Rockbox presentation, and there is going to be a GSoC presentation (if there is not already one)
21:01:52webguest90egister a method of running rockbor in c200v2 sansa or sansa c240 v2? and possible link to go but explanations?
21:02:27domonokywebguest90: as the frontpage states, no rockbox
21:02:31domonokyon c200v2
21:03:16webguest90mas antes havia uma versão intavel disponivel onde foi parar a mesma
21:03:30domonokywebguest90: please speak english here.
21:03:46webguest90but there was a version available intavel where has the same
21:05:20saratoga2rockbox on the c200v2 doesn't really work
21:05:28domonokywebguest90: some work has started on c200v2, but its not ready. And nobody knows when it will be ready.
21:06:11tomerssaratoga2: A call for spreading the work about GSoC was sent in the GSoC discussion group:
21:06:30webguest90asim but it is not possible to release a beta?
21:06:43domonokymore ideas for our gsoc2010 page would be good. Also, maybe the students here could try to recrut other students at their uni.
21:07:05*JdGordon__ wants to put buflib on the list
21:07:07webguest90but even asin not possible and release a beta?
21:07:37domonokywebguest90: no, its not in a state where non-developers can play with it.
21:08:33domonokyJdGordon__: then do it, and describe the buflib ideas which were discussed here to it. :-)
21:08:40tomerscan we have a GSoC slot for some 'dirty chores' like working on the manual?
21:08:49webguest90ok will wait anxiously for a version for the sansa c200v2
21:09:24JdGordon__domonoky: yeah, I want to write up the points from the discussion... i sort of think its too much work for gsoc though (and dunno if i'd trust it to a new comer anyway....)
21:10:03saratoga2tomers: i don't think thats allowed in GSOC
21:10:07pamaurytomers: what job can you do on the manual during three months ?
21:10:21domonokyJdGordon__: you never know those newcomers :-) And its just a possible idea, students dont have to choose it.
21:10:24saratoga2students must code, not do documentation
21:10:27 Nick danopia_ is now known as danopia (~danopia@fullcirclemagazine/developer/danopia)
21:10:48saratoga2ok added another GSOC codec project
21:10:55domonokythere is a differnt google thingi for documentation i think.
21:10:57saratoga2i suppose an mpegplayer project would make sense too
21:11:03tomerspamaury: just the job of a technical writer... whatever this might involve - language, writing about plugins more, screenshot...
21:11:16domonokysaratoga2: more codecs for mpeg player ? sure
21:11:36saratoga2AC3 support would make sense, as well as doing .vob
21:11:42saratoga2some targets could probably play DVDs
21:11:44pamaurytomers: that's not enough work for a gsoc, is it ?
21:11:56saratoga2its not allowed for GSOC so no
21:11:58domonokytomers: gsoc projects should be clearly defined, so its possible to judge the students performance..
21:12:23tomersGSoC project: implementing USB controller driver! (for any target that we don't have it implemented already)
21:12:28JdGordon__redoing the radio code would be great. right now its a mess in recorder/radio.c with no nice api to the driver
21:12:32saratoga2anyone feel like putting a note on the front page about GSOC projects?
21:12:37tomersdomonoky: I agree
21:12:49saratoga2no sense waiting to get ideas and interest
21:13:03JdGordon__a project blog would be a good place for these ads/suggestions :p
21:13:07domonokytomers: USB-driver is a good gsoc project.
21:13:23saratoga2we need a blog thing for the front page
21:13:40gevaertstomers: is that enough work for gsoc?
21:13:51saratoga2but i have no idea how to make one since i'm not very good at the web two point oh
21:13:54pamaurythen usb driver+host ;)
21:13:57*tomers wonders how Electrical Engineering students might use a software controlled DAP for...
21:13:59gevaertsit depends I guess
21:14:08domonokybut usb-driver for new targets might be also risky, depending on available documentation.
21:14:19saratoga2we've tried that before and it didn't work so well
21:14:25*gevaerts decides that it would be enough work
21:14:25 Quit webguest90 (Quit: CGI:IRC (EOF))
21:14:27saratoga2imo hardware specific projects are bad idea
21:14:31gevaertsbut yes, risky
21:14:47JdGordon__usb host support :)
21:14:49saratoga2unless perhaps the student is exceptional
21:14:59tomersgevaerts: I think it is... It is very important to the users, and it can be easily measured. We might ask the student for implementing two different controllers, if that's not enough ;-)
21:15:30saratoga2who runs the forums anyway?
21:15:56saratoga2scorche i think?

21:16:57*Buschel opens another Beck's
21:17:19domonokya note on the frontpage about searching ideas and students for a possible gsoc2010 might be a good idea. (also the frontpage needs the new Packard Bell Target mentioned)
21:17:37tomersmaybe that's a nice GSoC, having open source applications that use the GNU configure script be compiled for Rockbox - we need to have a Rockbox library file, and make the application compile as .rock file
21:19:05 Quit shaggy-h (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
21:19:06domonokyhm, you normally can just compile a normal app to a plugin, it has to be adapted. Think about the memory constraints, the api mechanism, etc.
21:19:20JdGordon__can we also make each student work out of a branch in svn from the very start?
21:19:35domonokythat would be good.
21:19:48tomersdomonoky: the xaos application has compile flag that does avoids use of malloc
21:20:08saratoga2JdGordon__: sounds like a good idea
21:20:14domonokyalso the weekly reports to the mailing list, should be enforced directly from the start.
21:20:15tomersi think it doable for that specific application
21:20:16Tornegetting configure scripts to build against custom hosted environmens that aren't ANSI C is spectacularly difficult
21:20:34Tornefor specific apps you are more likely to succeed by arbitrarily writign your own config.h and just crossing your fingers

21:22:10Tornetomers: yeah, just run configure on the closest platform you can find (i.e. same arch/compiler) and then edit config.h and the makefile when things don't work

21:23:29tomersif I'll try adding xaos as a new plugin, can I use svn:external to have the whole trunk of xaos synchronized? I guess it is not a good idea. It will make it highly coupled with the xaos project, and will not allow me to add Makefile files

21:29:56saratoga2if subtracks have a header or something, that might work
21:30:11JdGordon__how stupidly implemented?
21:30:44GodEaterI don't think themesite integration with our forums is a valid rockbox SOC project
21:30:51GodEaterit smacks more of a SMF project
21:31:25JdGordon__well, not really... SMF wouldnt care about our custom sites
21:31:36gevaertsIs there a good reason for the sim to ask for a 24 bit window if rockbox uses 16 bit everywhere?
21:31:36saratoga2it just concatenates tracks together
21:31:41saratoga2no header or anything else
21:31:53saratoga2so you have to constantly watch to see if your file became a new file while decoding

23:04:16perfectdruggood work!:)
23:05:13*Buschel didn't expect _that_ much effect
23:05:29Bullet`gevaerts, linuxstb : i just fix my problem =) thx
23:05:31AlexPWhat was it before?
23:05:46Buschelperfectdrug: and no noise? ;-)
23:05:54gevaertsBullet`: what was wrong?
23:06:05gevaertsAlexP: just below 100%
23:06:16AlexPblimey, that is nice
23:06:17perfectdrugBuschel: no all fine:D
23:06:36Buschelso, this _finally_ is realtime :)
23:06:50*Unhelpful still wonders if the recip table hack for arm would be useful on CF for APE...
23:07:16LambdaCalculus37Buschel: Got it now.
23:07:39LambdaCalculus37I need to finish something first so I can free a USB port.
23:07:58Unhelpfuli know CF has hardware division but it still takes *many* cycles, and a couple of compares, a table lookup (from iram) and a few multiplies might still be faster
23:08:08Bullet`I had permissions problems between my iriver and my ubuntu, so my rockbox.iriver hasn't been erased and lots of others bug due to this (my ubuntu is a trash :/)
23:08:30gevaertsah, ok
23:16:58JdGordon__how would people feel about live lyrics in the wps?
23:18:06gevaertsI'd feel that it's clearly about time to start thinking seriously about visualisation plugins :)
23:18:19LambdaCalculus37Buschel: What tests would you like performed?
23:19:52JdGordon__gevaerts: well yes, the problem there is only allowing 1 of those plugins running at a time :(
23:20:02gevaertsJdGordon__: that's what needs thinking
23:20:39gevaertsI don't think that this is worth doing if you can only use one
23:20:39BuschelLambdaCalculus37: well, you were overtaken by perfectdrug. if you like you can of course re-test the speed of the atrac decoder :o)
23:20:39JdGordon__with the skin buffer the RAM usage is a non issue, its just having it keep track of the current line, which shouldnt actually be to difficult I think
23:21:23gevaertshm, how about wps visualisation in lua?
23:21:40JdGordon__thats where I tihnk we will go eventually
23:21:50gevaertsI'd imagine that lua doesn'
23:21:55LambdaCalculus37Buschel: Speed testing the folder now. :)
23:22:18gevaertst have fundamental issues with running two "plugins" in the same interpreter code
23:22:53gevaertsYou can't really do fft or oscilloscopes in lua though. That would be too inefficient
23:23:04JdGordon__is it possible to load functions from a .rock into a random location? so we could register something like a tag handler which comes from a .rock/dll but is not a full blown plugin?

23:24:22gevaertshm, maybe
23:24:32mtBuschel: Is that 160% for CF ??
23:24:41gevaertsOnly if it doesn't use globals though
23:24:43Buschelmt: yes :o)
23:24:48JdGordon__I'm not sure how that would work though, you'd still need globals of some sort
23:25:00gevaertsno, you can give it a pointer to some data
23:25:02mtBuschel: *Respect* !! :)
23:25:37gevaertsat least I think so

23:25:53Buschelmt: that is more than a factor of 10 compared to the first implementation
23:25:54JdGordon__it would be nice we could somehow unload a chunk of the main binary for feastures that arnt used
23:26:02*gevaerts now expects one of the experts to hit him over the head with a ton of clue
23:26:21perfectdrugi would like lyrics in the wps, even if it would mean a lot of work to get the syncronized lyrics at the firt place
23:26:24domonokymaybe we should just design a different form of plugins for the wps which is relocatable

23:27:13*Buschel fears that committing his atrac patch will result in lots of red (full iram)
23:27:26mtBuschel: Amazing ! :)
23:28:12domonokythis visualisation plugins also dont need to be limited to the wps, any themed screen could have some :-)
23:28:46*JdGordon__ is using wps as the generic skin name
23:28:56*JdGordon__ slaps self for this abuse
23:29:10 Join anewuser [0] (anewuser@unaffiliated/anewuser)
23:29:46gevaertsSo we'd be looking at visualisation *functions* (not full plugins) that can call the plugin API (or a restricted variant), can access one blob of data (passed as one argument), can draw to one viewport (another argument), and can *not* access globals or other functions, right?
23:30:19JdGordon__except it needs globals somehow for its local store?
23:30:30gevaertsthat's the blob of data
23:30:59JdGordon__no, it would probably need to be more full than that
23:31:09gevaertsin what way?
23:31:14JdGordon__it needs a parse/init function, update and cleanup
23:31:37domonokyusing a given struct for userdata is probably fine. but you probably need more functions.
23:31:42JdGordon__the init could allocate its needed memory from the skin buffer without problems
23:32:15gevaertsWhy? I'd promise to zero the data before the first call so it can know it should do some init stuff, and I don't see why you need cleanup
23:32:27gevaertsah, ok
23:32:35domonokyalso it should expose some info, like "i want to be update often"
23:32:52JdGordon__well init would need to figure out what %xx|d|53|gfdb.bat|234|7|4 means
23:33:29gevaertsSo you'd basically have a set of functions, for each of which those conditions apply
23:33:52*gevaerts first wants to hear from experts if this is possible
23:33:59gevaertsTorne? Anyone else?
23:34:18JdGordon__I tihnk the easiest way of doing this is having a single plugin which can handle as many of these as we need and just make it really easy to add to
23:34:55JdGordon__a subfolder in apps/plugins/wps-steroids or something.
23:35:05BuschelLambdaCalculus37: test still running?
23:35:23gevaertsif you do it that way, all those limitations go away, but you also are limited by the plugin buffer size
23:35:51gevaertsThe other way, you could actually even consider loading the functions into the skin buffer
23:36:24JdGordon__plugin buffer size isnt exactly small, and if you use the skin buffer for allocations you have even more room to play with
23:36:43JdGordon__it would mean you could never batt bench your skins thuogh
23:36:49gevaertsAnd that will allow you to run those visualisation plugins from an sbs while showing a plugin menu :)
23:36:53domonokytheoretically that should be possible if we link this functions in a relocatable way, and have a loader which handles this format.

23:37:51gevaertsYou'd still want them to only use relative addresses for local things, but I guess the compiler will do that anyway
23:38:02CIA-8New commit by 03Buschel (r24677): Major optimization of atrac3 codec for Coldfire targets. Moving several number cruncher arrays to IRAM. Decoder is sped up by +50% on h300, decoder ...
23:38:09domonokyJdGordon__: it would also prevent any other tsr plugin in normal use (dont know if there is any)
23:38:15*Buschel crosses fingers
23:38:38gevaertsthere's one I think. This car adapter thing for archos
23:38:39JdGordon__well, we could always see if the wps plugin is loaded and if not then just not update that viewport
23:39:15*gevaerts proposes exploring both methods
23:39:38*domonoky thinks using only skinbuffer would be really nice. We need some linker expert.
23:40:02JdGordon__that buffer is getting awefully cramped though
23:40:10JdGordon__untill someone does autmatic sizing on boot...
23:40:12*domonoky thinks it should be possible, with some minor fixing of adresses with the loader.
23:40:37*gevaerts thinks that with the restrictions, it should be possible without any fixing at all
23:42:16JdGordon__at the very least any new tags (which these would be) needs a parser function, and a value getter (so it can work with conditionals) and an updater
23:42:43 Quit jgarvey (Quit: Leaving)
23:43:24gevaertsSince these would be some sort of light plugins, I propose to use the ".pebble" filename extension for them
23:43:37JdGordon__oy vey
23:43:52domonokyJdGordon__: that could still be done with the data struct and one single "process(struct)" function. Just put all info into the struct.
23:44:49 Join martian67 [0] (~martian67@about/linux/regular/martian67)
23:45:27domonokyie put a "action" field in tot the struct, and call process for what every you need, "update","getValue","init" etc
23:45:40Unhelpfuldomonoky: battery_bench is a tsr plugin
23:46:12domonokyUnhelpful: yes, i meant any other then that.

23:48:04JdGordon__I tihnk it was while we were still parsing the wps during the update!
23:48:06domonokyand if we manage to link this function (and its subfunctions) to address 0, we can just put the struct on the stack and jump to the pebbles address. :-)

23:48:34stripwax_saratoga - optimising TRANSFORM_xxx somewhat (although still relying on gcc a little bit) saves about another 1MHz in vorbis ;)
23:48:40stripwax_on arm, that is
23:48:53stripwax_96kbps is now 25.28MHz :-D
23:49:34stripwax_However I've now made the code *incredibly* ugly. But I'm going to commit it (to mdctexp) unless you can think of a good reason not to..
