#rockbox log for 2010-10-17

00:00:06G4OblivionSorry if I was wrong, just checking.
00:00:29TheSevenyou mean r28290?
00:00:31mc2739n1s: FS #10809 is no longer occuring with my sansa, but I no longer have the win 7 system to test on
00:00:51G4OblivionYes, my bad.
00:01:18TheSevenG4Oblivion: that comma doesn't make a difference
00:01:32G4OblivionAlright, just making sure.
00:01:36n1smc2739: i was just asking since noone had commented in almost a year and i would have though such a problem would be noticed quite often
00:01:53n1smc2739: so do you thik it should be closed or remain open?
00:02:29 Quit krazykit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
00:02:55mc2739I would say close it - a new task can be opened if iy occurs in the future
00:03:02TheSevenG4Oblivion: you can optionally place a comma after the last element of a list, probably to allow for easier auto-generation of such "code", and to allow moving lines around without bothering about commas. one of those got removed here.
00:03:23n1smc2739: ok
00:04:08TheSevengevaerts: could you enhance your tool to also print which function accounts for how much of the stack space?

00:04:24linuxstbTheSeven: Hi. Do you know if anyone has done anything on the newer ipods over the past few months?
00:04:31TheSeveni'd guess it's ~500-600 bytes inside the storage driver
00:04:56TheSevenlinuxstb: there has been some poking around, but nobody really tried to disassemble the bootloader
00:05:39gevaertsTheSeven: I'm still concentrating on the database building side now. Analysis will definitely have that
00:05:44TheSevencode can be executed on the nano 2g/3g/4g and classic 1g/2g/3g, we have bootrom dumps and decrypted flash dumps of at least some of them
00:05:47gevaerts372 in storage_write_sectors
00:06:27TheSevengevaerts: hex or decimal?
00:07:18TheSeventhat isn't the worst-case path then
00:07:26TheSevenhm, might be the missing pushes
00:07:32TheSeventhe path from my paste is 424 bytes
00:07:33grawityBy the way, I noticed that occasionally, when skipping to next song, Rockbox waits for it to be completely buffered (up to 4-5 secs) and only then starts playing. Is this something that's hard to fix?
00:07:48gevaertspushes can account for that
00:07:55gevaertsI'll add those reasonably soon
00:08:30TheSevenlinuxstb: the problem is that they're using efi on every platform besides the nano2g, which doesn't make disassembling easier
00:08:56TheSevenit surely can be done, but it's an awful hell of inter-module calls through runtime-generated call tables
00:09:00n1sgrawity: how do you know rockbox waits for it to be completely buffered?
00:10:40n1sYeah, i had hoped someone would have gotten some useful info from the newer ipod firmwares by now, too

00:13:23n1si'm just too terribly bad at reading asm to do anything useful myself at this stage :(
00:14:14grawityn1s: what else would it be doing? :) I actually don't know for sure, I just tried skipping songs in the "buffering thread" screen and seems like the new song only starts playing after the real/useful bars reach 1/5 or so
00:15:38grawityn1s: btw, doesn't happen in r27586 which I currently have (though it still lags by half a second or so)
00:16:02grawitystill occasionally*
00:16:12TheSevenhm, if a function isn't reentrant anyway, I could just make every local variable static, right?
00:16:41TheSeventhat might shave off a lot of stack space in the storage driver
00:19:42*grawity polishes his rockupgrade script.
00:25:21 Quit bertrik (Quit: :tiuQ)
00:28:18TheSevenis there a way to tell the compiler that function aren't reentrant, and that it can make things static if that saves something, but may keep them on the stack if that is better?
00:29:23 Join skfunnyboy_ [0] (
00:29:55gevaertsWouldn't that require a compiler with a good idea of what is better? :)

01:18:25gevaertsTheSeven: nice!
01:18:46TheSevengevaerts: what do you think about the open_internal hunk?
01:19:28TheSeventhis saves a lot of space in the average case, but makes things less predictable => might hide away potentioal stkovs
01:20:04TheSevenworst case: 4 bytes more stack space, a few bytes higher binsize/ramsize, and probably some neglegible performance loss
01:21:04gevaertsTheSeven: good question
01:21:27gevaertsI don't have a serious opinion
01:22:19gevaertsTheSeven: meanwhile, my tool outputs things like
01:23:46 Join binaryhermit_ [0] (~binaryher@
01:23:48gevaertsIt should take push/pop into account (but it counts them all, so if you do pop;call();push, the maximum stack usage gets counted for call()), but not variable length arrays or alloca() and friends
01:24:57gevaertsOh, and it doesn't do function pointers either
01:25:33TheSevenit should probably warn if it hits an instruction that messes with SP which it can't track (with the name of the function where it was found)
01:25:53 Quit binaryhermit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
01:25:54gevaertsAnd it requires handholding for recursion...
01:27:03*TheSeven wants a way to do post-mortem memory dumps, without corrupting parts of the dump in the process or relying on cold boot attacks
01:27:16gevaertsright. write_long_name() does "sub sp, sp, r3", which I could detect...
01:29:16TheSevendo we want to sacrifice ~2KB of binsize/~3KB of ramsize for such a feature?

01:51:16gevaertsWe'll probably branch for 3.7 in a few days though
01:51:46fenugrecgevaerts: from what I gather the main change between 27996 and the current daily is the system clock settings... is there a way to hex-edit the firmware to change it back ?
01:52:00fenugrecprobably not worth the effort

01:53:29gevaertsI wouldn't try that
01:54:34fenugrecheh. Are you aware if there's going to be a fuze-specific regression for this stability issue ?
01:54:54gevaertsCould you rephrase that?
01:55:59fenugrecSorry, the sentence is missing a piece : is 3.7 going to undo the changes done circa ~28000 to the fuzev1 clock settings
01:56:26gevaertsYes, unless a real fix is found earlier (which doesn't seem likely)
01:56:29fenugrecWhich, as I understand, is causing problems to only a few users
01:56:49jeplerHi. I have a FUZEv2 that I'd like to use in "car mode", but the bootloader I get when I use RockboxUtility-v1.2.8-64bit seems to boot OF when USB is plugged in on boot. It looks like r27075 changed this (to require select button too), but how can I easily get a bootloader built after r27075? (commandline is OK, but I'd rather avoid having to install a toolchain to build rockbox)
01:57:22fenugrecI'm really puzzled at that problem. I guess reverse-engineering the original firmware didn't give good enough clues as to CPU frequency + voltage management ?
01:57:55jepleralso, is there any easy way to determine which revision a bootloader file such as is built from?
01:58:33fenugrecjepler : have you tried mkamsboot ?

02:03:56fenugrechmm I thought the daily builds included the BL but apparently not
02:05:53jeplerwell the date of the bootloader in the directory listing is after r27075 so maybe it's what I need

02:09:41fenugrecyou merged the .sansa file with an original fuzeA.bin right
02:10:29jeplera file called fuzpa.bin from, copied to fuzpa.bin on the device
02:10:44jeplerI did get the "updating firmware" message
02:10:53fenugrecsounds right
02:12:06jeplerI wonder if I'm mistaken about what r27075 is about, or whether the bootloader is older than it, or .. something else I haven't considered
02:12:10jeplerI guess I'll build it myself next
02:14:01fenugrechave you tried with the latest daily ?
02:14:58jepleryes. I'd installed with rbutil a few months ago and then tossed the device in the drawer
02:15:17jeplertoday I installed today's build using the current version of rbutil
02:16:21n1sthe bootloaders aren't available as daily builds, only specific, tested versions are releases and only after some major change that someone feels is important enough
02:17:01jeplerI am not surprised, as the impact of a bad bootloader is pretty high
02:17:14fenugrechmm anyone know how to force the boost_counter to 1 and up the clock to 248MHz ? I'm in the debug menu but can't get the freq to change...
02:18:00n1sfenugrec: go into CPU frequency and spin the wheel
02:18:08jeplerbbl. thanks for the help and info. I'll be back once I brick my device.
02:19:06fenugrecnls: yeah, it doesn't change...
02:20:20n1sit does for me
02:20:31fenugrecjust turn the wheel one click or 10 turns ?
02:20:49fenugrechmm weird it jumped to 248 for a split second !

06:11:14flan_suseThis is a strange one.
06:11:32flan_suseEven with the latest current build, no files are shown in the file browser. Only folders.
06:11:58flan_suseI can still access podcasts and music via the database browser, but when using the file browser, all directories are shown as empty.
06:12:06S_a_i_n_twhat's your "Show files" setting?
06:12:18flan_suseIf I boot into the OF, all files are visible under the file browser. This is a Sansa Clip+.
06:12:58flan_suseS_a_i_n_t: Where is this setting under?
06:13:14S_a_i_n_teasiest way to get to it is via the quickscreen.
06:13:19flan_suseS_a_i_n_t: I don't recall ever touching it, and I noticed this happening just today.
06:13:43flan_suseS_a_i_n_t: Quickscreen?
06:13:48S_a_i_n_tIt is easily messed up via inadvertantly going to the quickscreen...first thing I'd check, personally.
06:14:13S_a_i_n_tQuickscreen: ^
06:14:13flan_suseS_a_i_n_t: I never heard of the Quickscreen. Maybe I did enable it by accident?
06:14:24S_a_i_n_tperhaps...check the manual.
06:14:56S_a_i_n_tI don;t own your specific player, so I can't say for sure how to envoke the quickscreen...the manual can however.
06:15:26flan_suseS_a_i_n_t: Ahhhh, no wonder...
06:15:34soapscorche, could you Please look into a forum plugin which prevents editing of posts after they have been replied to?
06:15:42flan_suseS_a_i_n_t: To access my quickscreen (Sansa Clip+) I have to hold down the "Home" button.
06:15:53flan_suseS_a_i_n_t: Maybe when it was in my pocket, it did this?
06:16:16flan_suseS_a_i_n_t: Thank you so much.
06:16:18S_a_i_n_tThe problem is fixed now I assume?
06:16:22flan_suseS_a_i_n_t: Turned out to be an easy fix! :)
06:16:31flan_suseS_a_i_n_t: Indeed. And thanks for being patient with me.
06:16:40S_a_i_n_tNo worries.
06:17:10flan_suseS_a_i_n_t: And as an added bonus, I learned about the Quickscreen. Never knew my player could do that. (I always used the "Home" key for something else, didn't realize by holding it down, I could access a hidden screen.)
06:18:04S_a_i_n_tflan_suse: That's where reading the manual comes in handy ;)
06:18:50flan_suseS_a_i_n_t: I didn read the manual, but only the parts of interest for me.
06:18:53flan_suse*I did
06:19:17flan_suseS_a_i_n_t: It's how I learned Rockbox for my player. But some parts I skipped over that did not look like I needed to bother.
06:20:22flan_suseS_a_i_n_t: This problem, at first glance, seemed like a bug or a fluke. Never would have thought it would be associated with a menu. But I'm sure there's a law somewhere out there that says "It's always the easy fix that's overlooked."
06:20:56flan_suseS_a_i_n_t: On another topic, just wondering if you've ever used custom entries with the disktidy plugin?
06:21:07S_a_i_n_tI have just seen it enough times now from other users to know that that is the first thing to check.
06:21:28S_a_i_n_tAnd, just the same...most of them have never seen the Quickscreen so have no idea they did it themselves.
06:21:29flan_suseS_a_i_n_t: Nice, and thanks again I have to say.
06:21:38HillshumIf certain playlist insertions from the database cause crashes, how exhaustive should my list of actions that will cause said crash be before I post the issue to FlySpray?

06:22:10S_a_i_n_twhat are you trying to achieve?
06:22:20flan_suseS_a_i_n_t: Yeah, the "infamous clip" of the Sansa Clip+ broke for me, surprise, surprise. So I have to wear it in my pocket. That's probably how the Quickscreen menu was accessed and fiddled around with unknowingly.
06:22:39flan_suseS_a_i_n_t: It does not delete custom files when I add and enable them.
06:22:46S_a_i_n_tIIUC the Clip(s) have a software keylock.
06:22:53S_a_i_n_tworth looking at perhaps.
06:23:32flan_suseS_a_i_n_t: I added a custom entry (*.bmark) and set it to disabled. (Per the instructions.) Then I enabled it in Rockbox, and started the cleaning. But it always says "0 files cleaned."
06:23:54flan_suseHere's a pastebin of what my disktidy_custom.config looks like:
06:23:59HillshumS_a_i_n_t: Where in the manual might I look for the keylock info?
06:24:00S_a_i_n_tare there any .bmark files present to clean?

06:29:09S_a_i_n_tIt *seems* to be correct, however I must say I didn't have much luck trying to edit the "files to be deleted" config either, though my use case was slightly different...I was trying to do a partial match on a filename, so I'm not surprised that didn't work.
06:29:57flan_suseS_a_i_n_t: No problem.
06:30:34S_a_i_n_tfrom the looks of it, it seems as though you could mess up the wildcard and try ".*" and it should just delete everything ;)
06:30:40flan_suseS_a_i_n_t: For the time being, I put a simply bash script in the root of my media player, which searches for all .bmark files and deletes them. Quick double-click, and it's cleaned.

07:32:53S_a_i_n_tI have a sollution, but it doesn't seem anywhere near correct...and I can't really see *why* it works.
07:33:06chrissaveryNo idea at all.
07:34:20chrissaveryI have no access to any Nanos. I ahven't even looked at PictureFlow code since my changes a few months ago. Sorry.
07:35:02S_a_i_n_tadding "#if !defined(IPOD_NANO) && !defined(IPOD_NANO2G)" around:
07:35:12S_a_i_n_trb->yield(); // allow audio to play when fast scrolling
07:35:12S_a_i_n_tbmp = surface(slide->slide_index); // resync surface due to yield
07:35:12S_a_i_n_tptr = &src[column * bmp->height];
07:35:29S_a_i_n_tseems ti fix it, but I can't see *why* it fixes it, or why it should be broken.
07:36:15S_a_i_n_tThought you might have an idea, no worries.
07:38:59chrissaveryI would guess some difference in how memory is handled on Nano. I put that code in to fix a possible memory release during the yield. On Fuze it was causing some cover art to show as "blotched bitmaps". So this forces it to reload an image if it was released. I think. Maybe on Nano that causes further overhead in memory management that slows it way down.
07:40:01S_a_i_n_tNano1G..yeah, I could possible imagine that. Nano2G is pretty damn powerful...something is definitely choking it, but I wouldn;t expect it to.
07:40:03chrissaveryIt's all a bit fuzzy now. But if that ifdef works then it's probably a good thing to do.
07:40:58S_a_i_n_tIt *works*, but I'm sure finding the right solution instead of "cutting off a limb" is technically "more correct" ;)
07:41:03chrissaveryI added the yields to make the scrolling smoother. But only tested on Fuze.
07:41:32S_a_i_n_tAha...irony. That small section completely borks scrolling on the Nanos ;)
07:41:55chrissaveryYes. Just can't win... everywhere at once.
07:41:59S_a_i_n_tyou *can* scroll..but the lag is awful, and fps terribly low.
07:42:44chrissaveryHave you had the ifdef patch submitted for others? I haven't been around and have no idea of any status on that code.
07:43:16S_a_i_n_tThe patch is on the tracker, unless it was closed.
07:43:21S_a_i_n_tShould still be there.
07:43:29chrissaveryI should actually update my Fuze because I'm using a version from many months ago now.

08:01:44chrissaveryI'm afraid I don't know enough about these things on the various platforms to be able to say why it works. When I was testing I noticed that audio dropped out a lot on Fuze when scrolling. I started looking for a fix and got the idea it was related to the audio buffer depleting while images were loaded. So I tried some yields to help the audio code to run while images were loading/rendering and that worked very well at fixing the dropouts and smoothing
08:02:26S_a_i_n_tdid you read kugels comments on FS #11387?
08:04:50chrissaveryYes. At the time I tried slow scrolling too and didn't see a problem. I don't know if that fix is the best way, only that it worked in my case. Maybe rather than an ifdef excluding it the correct solution is an ifdef that only includes it for Fuzev2. That may be safer for all other platforms.
08:05:56S_a_i_n_tI suggested that when it caught my eye, but noone was aware if there were greater numbers of targets misbehaving, or running as expected.
08:06:13S_a_i_n_tI could only speak for my cases at the time on the Nanos being totally borked.
08:06:17chrissaverykugel suggested a lower PRIORITY and if that works for Nano then it may be another way to fix it.
08:06:46S_a_i_n_tyeah, that's a little beyond me I suspect.
08:07:34chrissaveryYa, well me too, really. I don't know what code he changed for PRIORITY.
08:08:31S_a_i_n_tNor I, I may bug him when I see this bugs been around for a long time now and it would be nice to get it working again, but he's pretty tied up in Android I guess.
08:10:03chrissaveryI don't get in here much but I think if a post is made on Flyspray it does send an email to me. So if my input is needed there then that would be the way to get my attention.

12:52:33JdGordon1because skins are initally loaded before audio is restarted (playback is initialised though) there is no real penalty in loading the backdrops into the audio buffer *on boot*. If a later theme uses more backdrops than the one loaded at boot it would use the skin buffer (which would more likely have room now)

13:17:59S_a_i_n_tMy compile time would certainly be a fair ammount shorter for a "make from make clean"
13:18:00pixelmaI don't think it should but I'm really not sure
13:18:06S_a_i_n_t+if it didn't build it.
13:18:31pixelmaand I can't remember seeing it being built on any of my targets
13:18:54pixelmawhat's plugins/SUBDIRS saying?
13:19:16S_a_i_n_tapparently (according to pluginindex) it's only for H300 and 1~4G iPods
13:21:24pixelmaas if the plugin's wiki page are updated regularly... ;)
13:21:35JdGordon1bloody hell! actually I tihnk there was a bug in the fm screen!
13:21:41S_a_i_n_tit builds because it's defined with the same CONFIG_KEYPAD that the NAnos use
13:22:09S_a_i_n_tSo, this seems to need some work, and I'm not great with ifdefs
13:23:23pixelmamaybe it works on the 2nd gen Nanos?
13:23:44S_a_i_n_tthat's what I'm actually bitching about here.
13:23:55n1syeah, why shouldn't it work on nano2g?
13:24:10S_a_i_n_tI just remembered it built for, but wasn't included in, the Nano1G builds also.
13:24:13n1sif the ui works on other ipods with the same physical controls and smaller displays
13:24:36S_a_i_n_tI have no idea if it should/shouldn't work...but it doesn't get included from what I can see.

13:25:35JdGordon1bah, \n was supposed to be a new line...

13:44:54JdGordondoes anyone have general objections to allocing from the audio buffer if audio is stopped for the (rather large) backdrop images?
13:46:07gevaertsIf more than one thing starts to do this, this could get "interesting"
13:47:19JdGordonas long as rules are followed it shuold be ok... but yeah..
13:49:37gevaertsMaybe it's worth it to spend some time on an API that can be implemented by the advanced nice memory management systems that have been talked about, and use that, so when people actually get around to do any of this fancy stuff the code that uses it doesn't need (m)any changes
13:51:05JdGordonyeah, maybe
13:51:16JdGordondon't worry, this is going on FS first
13:52:13gevaertsI'd certainly hope it wouldn't go in during a freeze :)
13:52:15JdGordonalso, it looks like loading skins causes playback to be stop/started already anyway (because of AA chaning dimensions).. which kinda sucks

16:51:38S_a_i_n_tThe main problem I see with the "pre-viewport" way of doing things is that selecting a larger text can push text over images/animations and make it look really weird.
16:52:22S_a_i_n_tthat, and using spaces and newlines for alignment when you don't have to is just plain wrong.

16:53:30S_a_i_n_ta screenshot would be nice, if you can manage to get one.
16:54:12soapI though the issue was graphics from one screen persisting into another one?
16:55:06soapWhich, IIUC, should not be happening even if one doesn't use viewports. Isn't the use of viewports _hiding_ the problem here by forcing a redraw over the entire viewport?
16:55:35soapI don't recall this problem existing before viewports, so how can the (relatively) modern invention of viewports be the cure?

21:53:26kugelthat's what I experience on my phone too

21:56:27saratogayou could try disabling the code in synth_full_arm.S
21:56:34n1ssaratoga: yes, that uses a lot of ldr with the result used right after, that's a 2 c stall on v6, and most of the users of the ldr results seem to be smull/mslal which has the multiplicands as early regs so the stall is 3c IIUC
21:56:48saratogayes its a mess on later on arm
21:56:55saratogabut i wouldn't be surprised if other bits are bad too
21:57:10saratogathe mdct code is taken from the original libmad, circa 2003
21:57:22saratogai suspect it was not written with arm11 in mind
21:57:53n1si think arm11 was introduced around 2004 so you are probably right
21:58:36n1sbut if we disable this asm we also need per arm version compilation options
22:00:12saratogaits probably better to just disable it now on the beast, and then later on rewrite it with neon if it turns out that it matters on Android
22:01:10n1syeah but just disabling it makes libmad slower unless we use -O2... which is slower on arm7
22:01:15saratogaon arm11 is it bad to write back to a source register?
22:01:37saratogacheck for the beast model number in the makefile
22:02:04saratogaa lot of this looks bad on arm9 too

22:41:07saratogathe latency on all those mul instructions is huge
22:41:15saratogaall those back to back load/mul pairs must stall like hell
22:42:03amiconnNot because of the mul though
22:42:27n1smuls require multiplicands early so ldr-mul will stall for 3c
22:43:05n1smultiply-multiplyaccumulate only stalls for 1c
22:43:13saratogaoh yeah i misunderstood the sheet
22:44:10n1slrd r0, [r1]; smull r2, r3, r0, 5 takes 6c IIUC
22:44:23saratogabut if i understand correctly, if we could do packed 16 bit values, we'd be able to load one register, multiply the previous, then load the next, etc with little or no stall
