#rockbox log for 2010-03-20

00:01:30TheSevenpamaury: there's still an evil brace at ~2370
00:02:17TheSevenerm, still lots of those
00:02:37pamauryTheSeven: fat.c is not consistent !
00:02:57pamauryI can make a special cosmetic commit afterwards if you want :P
00:03:03TheSevenyes, of course
00:03:27TheSevenok, let's forget about those braces then...
00:03:54pamauryNo stupid/weird comments left ? I think I'll commit, that way I will soon see if it's correct or not !
00:04:23TheSeventhe rest seems to be fine

00:08:38Tornefilenames with 255 chars and the like?
00:09:03Tornehave you tried accessing directories that have been mangled by DOS? (rare and unlikely though that is..)
00:09:07TheSeven...and UTF16=>UTF8 translation worst cases
00:09:14pamauryno
00:09:27TorneTheSeven: well those shouldn'tb e any better/worse in the new code
00:09:28TheSevenwhat was that referring to? ;-)
00:09:30Tornethey shohuld still fail :)
00:09:40 Join phanboy4 [0] (~benji@gate-20.spsu.edu)
00:10:27pamauryPerhaps I should test up to the limit...Arg, back to test then
00:10:48Tornewell it just seems like a good idea..
00:11:01Torneif you do that kind of testing as well, and it seems several people have tried it, then it probably can go in
00:11:19Tornei won't be able to test it until at least tomorrow, as the machine i use to build has some disk issues right now :)
00:11:54pamaurydon't worry, i won't test tonight
00:14:19*stripwax sighs at fs#11125
00:14:35stripwaxI'll try and find when/how that menu was enabled. given that it doesn't work and aborts instantly.
00:16:17*stripwax sighs at r22171. seriously, wtf.

00:20:38 Quit fred_99 (Quit: Ex-Chat)
00:20:54*amiconn has a suspicion
00:21:43pamauryI think the brickmania thing was not fixed correctly but I'm not sure
00:21:48 Quit Luca_S (Quit: CGI:IRC)
00:22:23TheSevenwell, *apparently* it wasn't fixed correctly. but somebody tried to fix those things like a dozen times before, IIRC
00:22:29gevaertsamiconn: 01
00:22:43amiconnHere it's 00
00:23:11amiconnI have a suspicion
00:23:43pamauryIt uses a bad algorithm to check whether lines intersects. There is an exact one but it uses an approx one iirc
00:24:00amiconnThe cowon loader sets vbus mode to whatever is specified there, and if we want the opposite value, we have to do a proper reset
00:24:11*amiconn prepares a test
00:24:24CIA-5New commit by 03stripwax (r25251): Revert r22171 (+r22186) for pacbox, given that it doesn't work, and causes crashes on COP targets, and we in fact already had an open unresolved issue ...
00:25:12gevaertsa reset of the bridge chip?
00:25:16amiconnyes
00:25:24gevaertsthat makes sense
00:25:38amiconnRight now we're just deasserting reset in our init, but that does nothing if it is already deasserted
00:27:35amiconnYep - that's indeed the propblem!
00:28:29amiconnIf the OF (and hence the cowon loader) is set to "hub mode" (self powered), our usb init will fail, because it tries to set "PC mode" (bus powered ) without reset
00:29:02amiconnI wonder why this didn't cause problems earlier... obviously most iaudios are set to bus powered
00:29:14gevaertsapparently, yes
00:29:23amiconnWith a proper reset, I can set self powered mode on mine, with usb working afterwards
00:29:39amiconnSo the question is just which mode do we want?
00:30:13gevaertsI'd say bus powered. We don't have charger control, right?
00:30:13amiconnThis isn't 100% clean anyway atm - the bridge can also tell us whether 500mA are allowed, or only 100
00:30:39amiconnWe do, but we don't use it. Another ages old fixme...
00:30:41amiconn:sigh:
00:30:45gevaertsthat can be useful later on...
00:30:53*gevaerts tells Torne to make notes
00:30:56TorneHm?
00:31:09Tornecowon has usb power selection?
00:31:19Tornewell, someone can implement that when i finish my usbpower branch ;)
00:31:38gevaerts:)
00:32:26Tornei am not fixing up every target ever that i don't even have to do it right :)
00:32:40Tornethough i am gonna do my best to get beast, h300, mini2g and the PP ipods to work
00:32:51Torne(the former three being the ones which have some kind of implementation of this already)
00:33:16gevaertss/mini/nano/ presumably
00:33:20Torneer yeah
00:33:41Torneonce my build machine is working again i'm gonna have a crack at it this weekend
00:34:33amiconngevaerts: Can you test whether this makes usb work on your X5: http://rockbox.pastebin.ca/1846212 ?
00:36:23gevaertsamiconn: that works, yes
00:36:35amiconnyay!
00:36:39amiconnProblem solved :)
00:36:48gevaerts\☺/
00:39:02CIA-5New commit by 03amiconn (r25252): Reset USB bridge properly when selecting bus powered mode. The bridge might have been set to self powered by the cowon loader, and switching the mode ...

00:47:48amiconnyes
00:48:09gevaertsI don't know
00:48:15amiconnIt's obviously not a problem for most X5s, and there is no risk of bricking either
00:48:33gevaertsThere's also an easy workaround
00:49:11gevaertsAlso, we can't release an update for some targets only
00:49:51gevaertsMaybe commit to the 3.5 branch and include it if we do another update?
00:51:00gevaertsI can't remember anyone except fred_99 mentioning this on the forums or here during the past two years

00:56:07TheSevenbad commit message, a total of 3 commits until it even compiled for all targets, and now two stkov's in FS... hmm...
00:56:15saratogagevaerts: when you get a chance would you mind doing another benchmark on your arm system?
00:56:28TheSevennow *which* one of the patches caused it?
00:56:42gevaertssaratoga: it's called a "phone" :)
00:56:43gevaertsSure
00:56:57saratogai'm wondering if the arm asm was enabled when you compiled
00:57:38saratogawould you mind trying again with a "#define _ARM_ASSEM_ " at the top of misc.h?

00:58:46stripwaxgevaerts/saratoga - mm, what's this?
00:59:00saratogatesting libtermor on an arm system
00:59:23stripwaxah cool. as in, a non-rockbox system
00:59:23gevaertssaratoga: -D_ARM_ASSEM_ was in the CFLAGS
00:59:42stripwaxwhat kind of arm system?
00:59:50stripwax(I guess I mean which arm cpu)
01:00
01:00:26saratogagevaerts: then I don't understand why the speed up is so small compared to rockbox
01:00:57saratogai guess i should try porting the asm version of the current mdct to tremor and see how it performs
01:01:15amiconngevaerts: n900?
01:01:16stripwaxdon't forget vanilla libtremor (xiph) had a bunch of other inefficiencies which we improved upon in rockbox
01:01:25gevaertsamiconn: yes
01:01:32stripwaxi.e. speeding up just the mdct would look like a smaller % speedup if the inefficiencies are still there
01:01:39amiconnstripwax: So, ARM Cortex A8
01:02:16amiconn600MHz
01:02:22gevaerts500 I think

01:02:35 Quit pamaury (Quit: Quitte)
01:02:37stripwaxamiconn - I'm guessing that isn't used in any rockbox targets ...
01:02:44amiconnnope
01:02:49 Join robin0800 [0] (~quassel@general-ld-216.t-mobile.co.uk)
01:02:51amiconnIt's ARMv7
01:03:11gevaertsMaybe the mini2440 people can help if you want that sort of comparison
01:03:48amiconnBut since rockbox code doesn't make use of neon or other nifty features, the beast performance comes close (if you modify the cpu clock - it's currently not set dynamically)
01:04:04stripwaxsaratoga - when you said 'I guess I should try porting the asm version of the current mdct to Tremor' , I didn't understand. current as in old, or current as in mdctexp?
01:04:14saratogastripwax: the asm version of the old mdct
01:04:30saratogaalso the speed up was only like 3MHz on his system, and that includes ASM for windowing
01:04:49stripwax"only" 3MHz, for vorbis, sounds good, no?
01:04:56stripwaxif it's just the mdct that changed
01:04:57amiconngevaerts: What kind of cpu does the mini2440 have?
01:05:13saratogastripwax: tremor has a plain c mdct right now, the old version in rockbox has the ASM one
01:05:15stripwaxwe only saw about that on rockbox.
01:05:23gevaertsamiconn: s3c2440 IIRC
01:05:30saratogawhich speed things up by 2-3 MHz even before we added the new split radix version
01:05:39amiconnReally?
01:05:54amiconnThat's more like the Gigabeat F then, and it's only ARMv4
01:06:07stripwaxarm7tdmi is armv4 , is that right?
01:06:08amiconnSo the beast is a much better comparison than the mini2440
01:06:15amiconnstripwax: yes
01:06:31saratogagevaerts has some arm7 thing IIRC
01:06:34amiconnPrecisely it's ARMv4t, but that doesn't matter for rockbox
01:06:40gevaertsyes, but the mini2440 can run both rockbox and linux, so it can be useful for comparisons
01:06:59amiconnsaratoga: ARM*v*7
01:07:05saratogayeah
01:07:05gevaertssaratoga: I have a v5 (sheevaplug) and a v7 (n900)
01:07:12amiconnThat's very different from ARM7 (which is ARMv4)
01:07:35amiconnARM versioning *is* confusing :\
01:08:37stripwaxsaratoga - it's entirely possible that the C butterflies behave quite nicely on the n900's cpu; a large chunk of the (old) mdct asm was to ldr/str on arm7tdmi, and inline some smull/umulls
01:08:45 Quit Casainho (Quit: ChatZilla 0.9.86 [Firefox 3.6/20100115133306])
01:08:50saratogathats true
01:08:59Torneregular gcc output is much more likely to not suck on A8
01:09:17stripwaxso I'd say 3mhz sounds pretty reasonable. 3Mhz improvement over what baseline mhz?
01:09:26stripwaxtorne - exactly
01:09:34amiconnDepends on pipelining
01:09:48Torneamiconn: i mean from experience
01:09:54amiconnah ok
01:09:58Tornemoving to A8 we eliminated a lot of our asm code
01:10:04Torne(in symbian)
01:10:10Tornebecause it faild to bench any faster than the C code
01:10:15Tornethough we do use ARM RVCT, not gcc..
01:10:17amiconnARMv6 needs very careful pipelining for best performance
01:10:46TorneRVCT I guess is more likely to arrange stuff well for the pipeline
01:10:53Tornethat beiung kinda the point
01:11:01amiconnIf you check the ARMv6 version of the APE filters, you'll see what I mean..
01:11:17 Quit Farthen (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
01:12:24amiconnBut then v7 could be different again. It's not really predictable - you have to check the reference manuals (which aren't public for ARMv7)

01:12:59 Join bluebroth3r [0] (~dom@rockbox/developer/bluebrother)
01:13:19amiconnA similar example is that the v4 variants of ARM9 have quite different instruction timing from ARM7
01:14:54Torneyah. RVCT is pretty good on ARMv6 as well, tbh
01:14:54 Quit stripwax (Quit: http://miranda-im.org)
01:15:12Torneso maybe gcc output is *not* good enough, i dunno.

01:49:46amiconnThat's a crash bug on many targets, and it's in the release...
01:52:23doomcupI just reformatted the ipod manually after itunes kept freezing up upon plugging it in

03:11:43doomcupNot sure
03:11:46doomcupMusic, I think
03:12:04Strife89Change it to All.
03:12:24Strife89Do a Long Select on the Files option on the main menu.
03:12:52webguestLL"music" should still show .ogg files.
03:12:55Strife89Then slect Show Files.
03:13:12Strife89webguestLL: Yes, but we want to make sure the files are even THERE.

03:20:28doomcupShouldn't be much longer, hopefully
03:21:30doomcupAlso, when I open up the ipod on my system, the songs are there
03:21:42Strife89Hmmm.
03:21:47doomcupI know cause I added the songs in Windows, then opened it again when I switched back to Fedora
03:21:53doomcupSo could be a hiccough
03:21:59Strife89Maybe.
03:22:03doomcupWe'll know when this transfer's finished

03:22:11doomcupOkay
03:22:26doomcupI can point you to where I got the two files in question
03:22:43doomcupTHey're from the free game Dwarf Fortress, the two classical guitar bits
03:22:44Strife89Might as well. :)
03:23:55doomcupOne moment
03:24:06doomcuphttp://bay12games.com/dwarves/df_28_181_40d.zip <- Latest version is here
03:24:24Strife89Alright. :)
03:24:29doomcupIt's in the data/sound directory, song_game and song_title
03:25:04doomcupDon't bother with the linux version if you're going to play the game, though
03:25:08doomcupIt's rubbish
03:25:19doomcupWindows version is fine, don't know about OSX version
03:25:55Strife89Got it. I'll stick the files on my own iPod and give 'em a whirl.
03:26:32doomcupAwesome, thanks
03:27:50Strife89I have my Show Files setting on All at the moment.
03:27:59Strife89They show up and play.
03:28:42doomcupAh, so it might just be me then
03:29:49Strife89Test one more time, then.
03:31:19doomcupI'm about three quarters of the way done
03:32:14doomcupI will say this, both files play just playing them off the ipod's disk in audacious
03:32:52*Strife89 tries to pick something to delete.
03:33:06Strife89I'm strapped for disk space, as usual.
03:34:48doomcupAt least it's not stalling in the middle of disk transfers anymore
03:35:25Strife89Are you using Rockbox or the OF/Disk Mode to copy files?
03:35:33Strife89And what model iPod is it?
03:36:15 Part froggyman
03:37:44doomcupIt's a 5th gen ipod video, 30gb
03:38:00doomcupAnd I have it on as a disk, dragging music on
03:38:25Strife89doomcup: So you booted it to Disk Mode?
03:38:30doomcupNo
03:38:33Strife89Ah.
03:38:51Strife89So it's still in Rockbox, then?
03:39:08doomcupIt was in rockbox mode this time
03:39:37Strife89From my experience, USB transfers on the 4G and 5G iPods is a liiiitle sluggish.

10:49:50amiconnThe diacritics handling is a mess

10:51:27stripwaxamiconn - dandy.
10:52:10amiconnIRAM is shared between codecs and plugins, and they're linked to fixed addresses
10:52:21stripwaxamiconn - and on the pp targets, is there a concept of 'non-shared' iram for use by cop?
10:52:36stripwaxjust thinking what the 'right' fix for pacbox would be
10:52:45amiconnSo any plugin using iram needs to stop playback *before* copying its iram section on plugin startup
10:52:50stripwaxother than making it use less CPU and no iram.
10:53:02amiconnThe right fix for pacbox is what you did.
10:53:13stripwaxamiconn - :-)
10:53:29stripwaxnot what I meant.
10:53:36amiconnPlugins using iram do so for a reason - they need it for speed reasons.
10:53:41stripwaxI just reverted it back to how it was; I'm thinking more about fs#8226
10:55:28amiconnWell, #8226 makes pacbox not use iram anymore. This might be fast enough on PP, also with music playing because of dualcore
10:55:37amiconnIt won't work on coldfire this way
10:55:55 Join perfectdrug [0] (~marko@p5B0EF2DA.dip.t-dialin.net)
10:56:32amiconnBut then there are some codecs which also use the cop - they probably interfere with pacbox on cop
10:56:39*amiconn thinks #8226 isn't a good idea
10:56:58stripwaxamiconn right so #8226 is mine , and the problem is that it isn't fast enough on PP, because #8226 makes pacbox use both cores, which interacts badly with mp3. as commented in at the end of the FS itself
10:57:03stripwaxSo wondering what the better idea is
10:57:15stripwaxother than: making pacbox need less CPU and no iram
10:57:23amiconnImo we should just leave it as it is
10:57:36Unhelpfulstripwax: how, magic? ;)
10:57:56stripwaxif there is some kind of per-cpu non-shared iram, for example.
10:58:06amiconnThere isn't
10:58:07stripwaxif not, though, then yes. Magic.
10:58:09stripwaxah
10:58:40stripwaxok so it just need to be made faster. no biggie
10:58:59amiconnIf you want pacman and music at the same time, the best idea would be to write a native pacman implementation, and scratch pacbox
10:59:06stripwaxtrue
10:59:42amiconnIt would also be more flexible regarding graphics for various display sizes etc

15:53:05TheSevenwait, what is that thing? a core feature, or a plugin?

15:54:07S_a_i_n_tbut it menu entry is in the main menu...and I hate that.
15:54:12TheSevenif it's a plugin, do you mean the main menu of the plugin (and want to get that dictionaries thing one level up into the rockbox menu) or do you mean the rockbox main menu?

15:55:12S_a_i_n_tI mean, as it compiles now, it puts "Dictionaried" just before System on the main menu...and I'd like to have it in the "plugins" subdir"
15:55:25ThomasAHfunman: I was online, but I did not saw the paste

16:48:49pixelmaBuschel: is this new setting in a "things to enable/disable" submenu? Just reading "Line out" wouldn't tell me much
16:49:17gevaertsOne HAVE_USBSTACK targets, we're (slowly) collecting more class drivers, and at some point someone should work out a decent set of settings for them. This setting should be integrated into that
16:49:36Buschelpixelma: the SYSFONT text is only used in recording.c
16:50:29Buschelpixelma: the "line out" setting is placed in the system menu right beneath the accessory power supply.

16:51:22AlexPbattery capacity is only used for runtime estimation yes?
16:51:37S_a_i_n_tThe only thing I dont like about the way it is for the iPods now is that holding menu also activates the quickscreen, which is purely aesthetic except for the (about 3 out of 5 times for me) times when you don't get it quite right and end up messing up your quickscreen settings.
16:52:01AlexPS_a_i_n_t: I don't see how that setting wil lchange that
16:52:15AlexPYou will still have to hold a button for one of the actions, you can just chose which
16:52:29AlexPAnd there isn't really any way of gettign around that seeing as all buttons are used
16:52:36S_a_i_n_twell, you won't need to hold menu to activate "charge only" so, it will fix it completely.

17:37:33sevardCan anyone please point me to documentation on the rockbox calendar plugin?
17:37:46funmanbtw i had some crashes when loading plugins (mostly data aborts), but listening to music for a long time showed no artifact
17:37:56sevardI dropped an ical calendar I exported from google calendar into the Calendar directory but I can't figure out this plugin :|
17:37:57funmanalthough i have seen timeouts when waiting for TRAN state
17:38:46funmansevard: http://download.rockbox.org/daily/manual/rockbox-sansae200/rockbox-buildch11.html#x14-27200011.4.4 , doesn't look like you can import calendars
17:39:16sevardwell, it must read from a file..
17:39:19moosas far I remenber, indeed you canot do so
17:39:21sevardso it's in some sort of format
17:39:33sevardoh
17:40:02funmansevard: look at .rockbox/rocks/apps/.memo
17:40:42FlynDicefunman: I've had no problems while reading from SD, I've had state problems while trying to write but have not spent a whole lot of time yet.
17:41:41sevardwell
17:41:46sevardthis .memo file is empty
17:41:57sevardI found a http://www.rockbox.org/mail/archive/rockbox-archive-2003-11/0749.shtml
17:42:03sevardit's too bad he didn't post his perl script.
17:43:18funmansevard: did you write memos in the calendar plugin already?
17:43:52sevardno mate, i can't figure out the buttons
17:43:53sevardheh
17:43:55sevardi'm still playing.
17:44:17S_a_i_n_tsevard: that's what the manual is for ;)

17:45:03sevardhardware specific?
17:45:07sevardthat calendar app looks sweet.
17:45:26sevardi'm running an old 4th generation greyscale ipod
17:45:48funmansevard: have a look at the manual, all the supported plugins are listed
17:46:25sevardright right, but it says nothing about the file format in the pdf
17:47:14sevardso it's not really calendar appointments, it's a memo on a day.
17:47:17S_a_i_n_tuse the plugin...the look at the format it has written.
17:47:35S_a_i_n_ts/the/then/
17:47:36sevardso figuring out the the encoding and then writing a script to convert would be kind of useless

18:33:34kunali need some help with one of the idea listed in GSOC '10 ideas
18:33:53saratogakunal: which one
18:34:41kunalclean up the radio code. I get that the code need to be refactored, but it says "(building on the existing tuner_get/set() system)."
18:34:55kunalwhat is the existing system ?
18:35:07saratogakunal: hmm thats one of the few I don't know much about
18:35:28saratogathe basic problem though is that the radio code is ancient and i think a lot of it predates modern software decoding rockbox targets
18:35:49saratogaI'm curious why you're interested in that project, I thought it was the one we were least likey to hear anything about
18:36:04funmankunal: have a look at tuner.h and the tuner-specific headers included from here
18:36:53kunalsaratoga: actually i am totally new to rockbox, so that is the one i could actually understand much better compared to others..
18:39:32*domonoky1 thinks the most work in this project would be to rework the radio code, so the radio drivers get really generic, and all target specific parts go into our target tree.
18:40:19domonoky1kunal: do you have any rockboxable mp3players ?
18:40:38saratogawhat are the generic parts of the radio code? scanning for channels, the GUI, and ?
18:41:00funmanwhere is jdgordon when you need him!
18:41:02kunaldomonoky1: no
18:42:14domonoky1with generic radio drivers i mean radio driver code whitout target-depended defines, they should just use the data transfer functions from the target tree.
18:44:50AlexPkunal: I think you would need one (with a radio) for this project :)

18:54:13kunal"Apple: iPod 1g through 5.5g " does that means it is talking about ipod classic ?
18:54:22kunalor shuffle
18:54:24funmanclassic is 6g afaik
18:54:42AlexPyes, classic is 6g
18:54:59AlexPkunal: and shuffle isn't mentioned so therefore not supported
18:55:05kunalokay
18:55:16AlexPWe explicitly list the targets we work on
18:55:34saratogaif in doubt what an mp3 player is, check wikipedia :)
18:55:42AlexPNote that ipods don't have radios so if you went the ipod route you would also need an add-on
18:55:56AlexPOne of the sansas with radio would be a better bet IMO
18:56:04saratogaa sansa is a pretty good choice since they have radios and are really cheap
18:56:14funmani just looked at that, it seems fm for ipod is implemented externally to the device (in the headphones)

19:12:12bieberI'm looking at the Theme Editor SOC project, and I'm wondering about the "current theme editor" that the project description mentions. Is this somewhere in the SVN tree? Google only turns up some amaroK script and a link to the SOC page suggesting the project when I search for "Rockbox Theme Editor"
19:12:31bluebrotherbieber: hello
19:13:06bieberHello
19:13:07bluebrotheryou're Robert Bieber?
19:13:15bieberYes, I think I emailed you yesterday
19:13:17Dobsoni believe current editor is noteoad
19:13:31bluebrotherindeed. Just wanted to reply you, didn't get around earlier :)
19:13:54Dobsonnotepad, but GUI theme editor would be realy nice
19:14:05bluebrotherbieber: check utils/wpseditor, that's the current editor.
19:14:29bluebrotherit's been done in SoC2008 (?) but almost hasn't been touched since.
19:15:36bluebrotheryes, it was 2008. There's even a wiki page about it, see http://www.rockbox.org/wiki/WpsEditor
19:15:46Dobsonwhere is utils? because i cant find them? or is this "still in process" thing?
19:15:51***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
19:16:10bieberIf you check out the SVN tree, there's a directory "utils" in the root directory
19:16:14bluebrotherDobson: it's in svn. You just need to get trunk, then you also get utils
19:16:22bieberThanks for the header, I'm going to compile it and take a look now
19:17:02AlexPIf it compiles
19:17:08Dobsongod my english is bad, what is trunk?
19:17:21AlexPThe "root" of the Rockbox SVN repository
19:17:36AlexPThink of it like a tree
19:17:51funmanDobson: have a look at http://www.rockbox.org/wiki/UsingSVN
19:18:34bluebrotherDobson: to be more specific it's a convention in the svn world. You have some top-level folder, and the one the main development is going on is called "trunk" per convention. Same is with the folders "branches" and "tags".
19:18:52bieberOkay, it doesn't compile
19:18:54bluebrotherThat's simply because svn doesn't know about tags, branches and stuff. It "just" deals with copies.
19:19:03Dobsonye I get it, i got another thing in my mind
19:19:22AlexPbieber: WPS code has had a *huge* amount of change since 2008, I'm not suprised
19:19:33Dobsoni was thinking about finished utils :)
19:21:03bluebrotherbieber: the problem with the wps editor is that it reused quite some code from the main Rockbox tree to avoid duplication.
19:21:21funmannot much luck with FM audio out :/
19:21:35bluebrotherwhich means that you need to also deal with Rockbox code. Not the low level stuff, though.
19:22:30bieberI would imagine mostly the stuff in apps/gui/skin_engine, right?
19:23:02 Quit anewuser ()
19:23:42funmanfm regs are identical for my fuze & clip+ so i suppose no changes are needed in si4700 code
19:26:06Dobsonrockbox just crashed on my fuze
19:26:10bieberI'd expect to have to refactor the skin parser a good deal, as it seems to use a lot of conditional compilation for different targets, and the editor would need to be able to handle that kind of thing at runtime
19:26:53bluebrotherbieber: there's a small ... "problem" with terms: the first part (and pretty long the only part) that was customizable is the While Playing Screen, i.e. WPS. Bundled with some other settings (like fonts and colors) that was called theme. Later it was extended to allow further customization.

19:31:30bieberDoes anyone remember working with the old editor? Would it likely be more worthwhile to try to get it to compile and work on it from where it is, or start with a new one?
19:32:05bluebrotherdomonoky is the one who mentored the project back then.
19:32:32pixelmabluebrother: it's in all different voices I tried (though all infovox ones currently) and sounds the same as far as my ear can tell
19:33:14AlexPbieber: I doubt anyone has used the old one, it never really got to "release"
19:33:54AlexPbieber: I think that decision should be made after you and your prospective mentor (and others in here) have discussed it
19:34:05bluebrotherI remember I had the old editor running once. Though it was rather clumsy to build it at all.
19:35:08bluebrotherIIRC that project unfortunately failed in the end so my guess is that it might be easier to start from scratch.
19:35:20bieberOn another note, what kind of requirements/preferences would you all have for a student for the project?
19:35:57AlexPSomeone who communicates well, has some skills, etc.
19:36:04AlexPJust the standard ones :)
19:36:18bluebrotherAlexP: define "standard" ;-)
19:36:31AlexPbluebrother: I just did :)
19:36:37AlexPAdd works hard too :)
19:36:43bluebrotherAlexP: by yourself? ;-)
19:37:04bieberIs previous experience a must? I'm a good student, and I think a good coder, but this would be my first time working with anything this large
19:37:12*domonoky thinks the old wps editor is only useable as inspiration. A new theme editor should probably built from scratch...
19:37:14Dobsonknows asm :)
19:37:28Dobsondont listen to me i'm not in this thing
19:37:36pixelmabluebrother: I can't tll if it's there on my Ondio but I had to go down with the quality quite a bit and mp3 compresses could possibly give different results anyways
19:37:42domonokyi also dont know if it worth to reuse rockboxs parsers etc, maybe its better just write new parsers..
19:37:48bieberWell, I know one asm, but I don't think I'd write a theme editor with it ;)
19:38:25AlexPI hope not :)
19:38:25gevaertsbieber: previous experience definitely helps, but we do know that "student" means "not an experienced professional"
19:38:49domonokyusing rockboxs parser would help to not dublicate code, but it also makes it very complicated .. the old project essentially failed because of that.
19:38:51Dobsoncontroling analog signals in asm ir real pain
19:39:04bieberdomonoky: I was beginning to have the same thought as well. I've been scanning over the current skin_parser.c for a little while, and it looks like it's really heavily tied into Rockbox's architecture
19:39:35AlexPAbility to "easily" keep it up-to-date with Rockbox changes is something to think about too
19:39:50domonokyyes, it would many wrappers etc to make it compile on PC, and they would always fail if something changed in rockboxs code.
19:39:53bieberI'd think I could probably build something with Bison or something similar more easily than I could refactor all of that code

19:41:05domonokyif the tokens etc are defined via some textfile or similar, it would probably be easy enough to keep it uptodate.
19:41:51bluebrotherbieber: from my point of view if your are keen to learn, willing to spend the time (I'm considering SoC like a full time job for students) and communicate well then you have the main requirements met. Previous experience definitely is a plus but nothing I'd consider being important. You need to start somehow at all, don't you?

The ATA patch was measured by dreamlayers and myself in benchs without any clearly visible effect. The measurements via debug screen told another story... In total I do not expect the total runtime to go up more than 20-30 min on a 30GB model. But even that is fine :o)

21:49:03fmlpixelma: technically, yes. They are placed into a 'figure' environment which is a floating. LaTeX tries to put such things where they are but may also shift them. We redefined figure placing to be 'H' which effectively means 'no shifting'.
21:49:59fmlThe only purpose of having 'figure' is the possibility to have a caption. But captions can also be set in another way, without 'figure'.

22:52:40TorneOh :)
22:52:53sevardgilmorenator: yeah ;)
22:53:02pamauryI think I'll also further reduce the size of fat_dir->longname
22:54:06pamauryOh sorry, increase :) To avoid another overflow if the number of LFN entry is good but the size is >=255
22:54:48Tornewhat's the maximum length we can reasonably deal with?
22:55:22pamauryin which part of the code ?
22:55:30Tornein general.
22:55:40Tornei mean eventually you'd hit MAX_PATH no?
22:55:47pamaurywell, MAX_PATH is rather present even though I would like to suppress it
22:56:13pamaurythat's 260 actually
22:56:23fred_99saratoga, I did a battery bench with my x5 under cowon OS, and the result is almost the same. I can mesure the real current consumption with an amper meter if you want.
22:57:20fred_99if it helps of course
22:57:27pamauryTorne: hum, I think the current and older code was/is buggy: LFN entries are not always NUL terminated
22:57:35Tornewell there's no point in handling filenames longer than MAX_PATH, is there?
22:57:45Tornesince we can't actually pass them to the caller]
22:58:02Torneanyway yeah, i'll take the patch out I think
22:58:13Torneif you come up with another one i will review it if you like
22:58:19Tornei didn't really look at this in detail
22:58:30pamauryI don't like fat spec, look:
22:58:39pamaury Names are also NUL terminated and padded with
22:58:39pamaury0xFFFF characters in order to detect corruption of long name fields by errant disk utilities. A name
22:58:39pamaurythat fits exactly in a n long directory entries (i.e. is an integer multiple of 13) is not NUL terminated
22:58:39DBUGEnqueued KICK pamaury
22:58:39pamauryand not padded with 0xFFFFs.
22:59:07pamauryNUL-terminated ? not NUL-terminated ? That is the question :)
22:59:15fmlpamaury: are you talking about the current FAT code? AFAICS there is a check whether the LFN still fits into the buffer. If not, the short name is used.
22:59:26TorneIt's terminated by a NUL or by the fact that you've reached the last LFN entry
22:59:31Torneer, the end of the last LFN entry
22:59:32Torne:)

23:00:43sevardyeah, I'm having an issue when I pause my audio and rockbox goes into power save mode it must not be parking the drive correctly
23:01:02Tornei don't understand what you mean..
23:01:05sevardI figured it was my drive, but I put a brand new hdd in the 4th gen ipod
23:01:18Tornewe leave the hard disk off almost all the time
23:01:27sevardwell, when I press play to wake it up, the drive will click and I have to give it a sharp rap or else it'll give me an error screen
23:01:39Torneit's only on when we're refilling the buffer, or when you are doing somethign in the UI which requires disk access
23:01:55Tornewhat do you mean, power save mode?
23:01:58Torneyou mean idle poweroff?
23:02:13Tornerockbox doesn't support sleep mode
23:02:26sevardif that's what you call it, yes. it completely shuts down after a minute or two of inactivity
23:02:45TorneThen that's not anything to do with Rockbox
23:02:53sevard?!
23:03:00Tornewhen it powers off it's off
23:03:08Tornewhen you turn it back on, the Apple code in the flash rom runs
23:03:20Torneif it doesn't even make it to our bootloader then it can't be rockbox causing it..
23:03:23TorneI would guess you have a hardware problem
23:03:50sevardI'm saying the issue lies when rockbox goes in to powersave mode, when it shuts off because of inactivity, it doesn't park the drive correctly.
23:03:54Torne(and idle poweroff is not normally a minute or two, it defaults to much longer, unless you have set it
23:03:58sevardthe drive works perfectly without seek errors or whatever
23:04:12sevardinteresting, i'll poke around in the manual and try to adjust it
23:04:13TorneThere is no "parking the drive"
23:04:16Torneit does that itself
23:04:28Torneit's been decades since disks needed to be parked by software
23:04:34Tornethey do it automatically on poweroff.
23:04:35sevardwell then
23:04:52sevardi aman old fashioned idiot eh?
23:05:11Tornewell no, clearly your ipod has a problem
23:05:20sevardwhen you reboot, with menu and select, the harddrive shuts off and starts up again, right?
23:05:20Tornei am just saying that it seems a lot more likely to be hardware.
23:05:36Tornesevard: I believe so
23:05:43sevardI don't have an issue with drive parking then
23:05:46Tornealso, that's not the normal way to reboot
23:05:51 Quit fred_99 (Quit: fred_99)
23:05:56Tornethat's a hrd reset, for emergencies only
23:06:00sevardeg, if it's running and i reboot it with menu/select the drive fires up just fine.

23:06:18sevardah, I was completely un aware, i guess there's a soft-reboot option in system?
23:06:25TorneRockbox doesn't have a reboot option

23:06:30Torneyou just power off then power back on again
23:06:39TorneIf you hard reset you will lose chagned settings, etc
23:06:44Torneyou should only do that if it's hung.

23:08:40Tornesevard: anyway, it's *possible* there is a problem with rockbox, I am just saying it seems unlikely
23:08:57Tornesevard: does it boot ok to the original firmware, if you turn on the hold switch? or does it have the same problem there
23:09:25sevardit's supposed to boot back to the apple os when you turn on the hold switch?

23:12:16Tornesevard: If you have the hold switch turned on while booting up, it will start the OF, yes
23:12:31Torneyou need to turn it on immediately after powering on
23:12:54Tornebut it will've had to already bring the disk up at that point, since the dual booting is done by our bootloader
23:13:54sevardyes it does boot to the ipod firmware
23:14:07Torneand it does that without a problem?

23:22:32sevarda frequent problem, for a month, and now nothing.
23:23:21stripwaxmaybe it didn't like being rebooted via menu+select :-)
23:23:26sevardhaha
23:23:37stripwaxit's quite a severe thing to do
23:23:46sevardthe problem was when I was playing music on the way to work, I'd stop at the gas station, come out, my ipod would be shut off
23:24:04stripwaxonly if you pause/stop it, presumably ?
23:24:06sevardI pressed play and could hear the read head clicking, and it would error/not boot.
23:24:14stripwaxwhat does that mean?
23:24:17sevardyeah, I press pause when I get out of the car.
23:24:21stripwaxwas there actually an Error Message
23:24:33sevardIt's the apple sad mac error message
23:25:11stripwaxthat is indeed really weird

23:44:41amiconnpamaury: MAX_PATH is 260 in rockbox, but each path component is limited to <= 255 as per fat specs
23:45:20pamauryyes I now
23:45:29pamauryfat spec also limit a path to 260
23:45:36pamaury(characters, not bytes !)
23:46:11amiconn(and the actual limit *in characters* might be even lower due to the fact that MAX_PATH is 260 *bytes*, rockbox using utf-8, and fat using ucs-2)
23:46:44pamauryyes, rockbox doesn't handle all filenames that FAT handles
23:46:52amiconnOr utf-16, not 100% sure whether fat allows extended characters
23:48:29amiconnActually MAX_PATH == 260 is not actually a fat limit, but used by convention
23:48:30pamaurythe spec is rather vague
23:48:57pamauryamiconn: the FAT spec limits the maximum length of path to 260 characters
23:49:00 Quit stripwax (Quit: http://miranda-im.org)
23:49:08pamauryLong names are limited to 255 characters, not including the trailing NUL. The total path length of a
23:49:08pamaurylong name cannot exceed 260 characters, including the trailing NUL.
23:49:28amiconnThe unicode file api in windows allows path lengths of up to (a little less than) 64K chars, but keeps the 255 chars per path component limit
23:49:48pamauryyes the windows api is not the fat spec ;)
23:50:23amiconnThat's true, but then I don't see why a filesystem specs should limit total path length
23:51:14ender`<amiconn> The unicode file api in windows allows path lengths of up to (a little less than) 64K chars, but keeps the 255 chars per path component limit <- only when you prefix the path with \\?\, and only for programs that don't assume MAX_PATH limit
23:51:19amiconnAnyway, total path length isn't a propblem in the fat driver (iirc)
23:51:27ender`(and only for absolute paths)
23:51:39amiconnender`: That's why I said *the unicode api*
23:52:23ender`even if you use unicode api, without \\?\ prefix, you're limited to 260 characters (99% of programs fall under this limit)
