01:37:09telliottthe_Kyle, yes the music is on the card. I love dynamic playlists bit I have a particular playlist I want to transfer to the card.
01:38:12the_KyleDoes the playlist not work as is if it resides on the card?
01:38:22telliottMaybe I just need an ecitor that will let me insert a string at the front of every line
01:39:06telliottNo
01:39:29telliottIt just hangs and gives up
01:40:51the_KyleIn that case, the only thing to do would be to insert the <microSD1> string at the beginning of each line. The easiest way I can think to do this is to insert it at the beginning of the first line and then copy and paste it on each subsequent line.
01:42:56telliottYeah. I tried to figure out a way to use search and replace
01:44:07the_KyleIf the files aren't in a folder, you could replace / with <microSD1>/, but if the files are in a folder, that definitely won't work.
01:44:42telliottTrue
01:45:06telliottI am going to try mocing the playlist to the root instead of /playlist
01:45:20telliottor /playlists
01:46:07the_KyleYou will still need <microSD1> at the beginning, unless you putthe playlist in the same folder as the files.

01:51:03telliottThere must be some way to get MediaMonkey to do it. Plaulists on the main internal storage work fine
01:52:14the_KyleI'm not familiar with Media Monkey. It will work if you have some kind of prefix option.

01:54:42saratogaselectohh: the clipv1 has 2MB of DRAM, and 320KB of IRAM, and thats all
01:55:42pixelmaeRivas: if you mean what cfg files can contain, there is a chapter in the manual about it. Or do you have another problem?
01:55:42saratogaif plugin_get_audio_buffer returned 6MB, you probably have a Clip V2, not a Clip V1
01:55:57saratogahe probably means the WPS files given the phrasing of his question

01:56:57saratogayou can't really do that
01:57:05saratogaother then changing the fonts at least
01:57:22eRivashow about .sbs files?
01:57:34pixelmayou can create a custom status bar and the radio screen is themeable too
01:58:38eRivasso its an universal backdrop and a wps backdrop, right?
01:58:40pixelmaeRivas: I'd recommend the CustomWPS page on our wiki and the manual too

02:24:01saratogaalso got some odd data aborts
02:24:06saratogaso something is screwy
02:24:33saratogaby just "just wouldn't resume" I mean selecting anything just resulted in silence like the audio driver wasn't feeding data to the DAC

05:34:16[Saint]Is it correct that USB is supposed to work on Fuze V1?
05:35:35[Saint]I seem to just get an endless boot cycle (I can only tell by the wheel light, it has no LCD) with RB release and SVN head, and have to mount using the OF>
05:36:17saratogayes USB works on the fuze v1
05:36:37saratogaassuming you're already in rockbox, it will not reboot
05:36:45[Saint]Do I have to do some weird magic or trickery with the bootloader?
05:37:16[Saint]I let RBUtil handle that, I haven't tried an SVN bootloader yet as I don't have a build environment set up.
05:37:22saratogaif you're in plugging in with the player off, you'll need to have patched your firmware in the last couple months
05:37:37saratogaotherwise, no, the bootloader doesn't matter once rockbox is running
05:37:41[Saint]neither seems to work.
05:37:59saratogawhat happens?
05:38:09[Saint]if I plug it in when it's on or off, boot cycle. I have to specifically boot the OF apparently.
05:38:37saratogawhat revision are you on?
05:38:47[Saint]one sec.
05:40:20[Saint].rockbox=r28913
05:40:32[Saint]can't seem to find the bootloader info.
05:41:14saratogabootloader doesn't matter
05:41:30saratogayou're sure it reboots and doesn't just freeze?
05:42:01[Saint]the wheel light comes in in a regular pattern, so yeah...I'm pretty sure it's a boot cycle.
05:42:15[Saint]without the CLD though, it makes it a little hard.
05:42:32saratogai'm not sure thats rebooting
05:42:47[Saint]well, it sertainly isn't mounting.
05:42:58[Saint]ew, that was bad. *certainly
05:43:36saratogai guess it could be freezing in someway that just reboots without showing any message
05:44:20[Saint]fingers crossed, I'll be pillaging an LCD from Strife89's old Fuze V1...so, time will tell what it's doing.
05:44:33saratogaalthough if the screen never comes on, it sounds like the OF bootloader never runs
05:44:56[Saint]well, I can't tell if the screen fires or not ;)
05:45:04[Saint]it's not actually in the DAP.
05:45:17saratogathis is one of those things thats helpful to mention
05:47:42 Join kam_ [0] (~chatzilla@user-0c90t1m.cable.mindspring.com)
05:48:26[Saint]neither the OF nor RB seems to care a bit about the missing LCD, t's easy to tell when you're in rockbox due to the voice...I simply can't get it to mount under RB though. I plug it on, either on or off and the wheel light just comes on every ~20 seconds or so.
05:49:28saratogamy guess would be you're actually running a much older build then you think you are then
05:49:35saratogaif not, i have no idea
05:50:19[Saint]well, if it's running an ancient build then RBUtil is seriously messed up and rockboxinfo lies.

06:25:40Lloreanpikytcus_: Bass is often handled by the hardware, so may perform differently on different players.
06:26:00LloreanOn some players though it may be handled in software (I don't know which)

06:26:41LloreanYou could try using the EQ to add precut and see if that helps
06:26:56LloreanIf you've got a player with software bass, I think EQ precut or replaygain could both help
06:28:07pikytcus_Cool, will try that

07:34:37nowtI've found what may be a (ridiculously obscure) bug in Jewels in 3.4, I haven't found anything related to it on flyspray so I wonder whether I should report it anyway?
07:35:08nowtEssentially, if you finish a level with your last possible move, the game ends once it's completed the new level animation, even if new moves have been made possible
07:35:30nowtis this worth reporting at all?
07:36:11[Saint]is that even a bug?
07:36:27[Saint]seems as though it could be intended.
07:36:46nowtthat's what I wonder, hence "may be"
07:37:00nowthowever if your last remaining move results in more moves being possible without changing level, the game continues
07:37:19 Quit anewuser ()
07:37:24nowtmy guess is that it isn't intended, but I don't presume to know
07:37:57nowtI found it an interesting curiosity, and it's certainly very unlikely to occur
07:38:49 Quit feisar- (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
07:39:15LloreanIt doesn't sound like expected behaviour (in the sense that the expectation is generally "if my move results in more possible moves, then I haven't lost") so I'd say report it. Though 3.4 is awfully old. Jewels may have changed since then, I'm not sure. I doubt that bug has been fixed, of course, but 3.4 is quite old.
07:39:40LloreanAt the very least, the manual should describe the game far enough to let you know what "lose conditions" exist.
07:40:01nowtYeah, I'd test it on 3.7.1 but by the time it happened again there would probably be an even more recent release!
07:41:59nowtI'm still on 3.4 because of some strange behaviour in anything more recent on my H340, but that's something I haven't looked up yet
07:44:13nowtI don't have the capability to set up the game in that state to "debug" it
07:48:00nowtAlright, submitted. Let's see where it goes
07:48:07nowtthanks for your help

16:11:48Buschelgreat, then you can do multiple tests with a single build (1. ATA DMA change, 2. RGB, 3. YUV)
16:12:18[Saint]Sure.
16:13:40bertrikfreddyb, yes I think it should be reverted to get uSD working for everyone. My guess it's probably some issue in the sd controller driver though. There's probably something very marginal there, we've seen problems earlier when slightly increasing the CPU clock from 240 MHz to 248 MHz.

18:49:39eRivashi guys, some theming questions here
18:50:01[Saint]shoot.
18:50:02eRivasmy volume icon is not working correctly
18:50:14eRivasit has only four stages
18:50:26eRivasmute, min, med, and max, to say something
18:50:27[Saint]define "not working correctly", and pastebin your code.
18:51:41eRivasI would expect rockbox to show each one for equal intervals
18:52:20eRivasbut rather one of the icons is really long, and the last three almost change on every step I do on volume
18:52:27[Saint]wait...are you talking about your own theme, or a theme shipped with rockbox?
18:52:42eRivasoops, sorry, my own theme, on sansa fuze v2
18:52:52[Saint]pastebin your code please.
18:52:59[Saint]I think I know what you're doing wrong.
18:53:00eRivasall the wps?
18:53:09[Saint]why not.
18:53:11eRivasok

18:55:46[Saint]*doesn't
18:55:48eRivashttp://pastebin.com/FsZNj3Uq
18:58:31[Saint]right, yeah...it is as I thought.
18:58:49[Saint]the %pv tag segments are actually "the volume is actually <mute|.|.|...|line out|greater than line out>"
18:59:29[Saint]so, you just need to adjust the amount of segments to fit your percieved idea of "15%" increments.
18:59:45[Saint]*25% rather

19:11:26LambdaCalculus37This is a bit more tricky for me...
19:11:28Buschelsoap: I do not understand your build problem, the v03 patch is nearly identical to the v02 −− except an additional "#if'defing".
19:16:54eRivas[Saint]: hmm, the theme broke, it fell back to the stock theme
19:17:32[Saint]eRivas: One second. I'll have another look.
19:18:21eRivas[Saint]: I have notice that the old battery code has "||%xd(ia)". Are those two bars necessary
19:19:17[Saint]no, it skips out he condition for battery state unknown, and the first step of the battery state that is known.

19:25:46[Saint]you can also enable screendump on the player through the debug screen.
19:26:12[Saint]when in screendump mode, as dump of the current screen state is made when USB is plugged.

21:56:37gevaertsThe usual "pulseaudio uses lots of CPU" things, but we can't help that
21:57:29gevaertsHalf of that disappears if you plug in headphones, and another 2.5% or so vanishes if you tell gstreamer that rockbox outputs at 48kHz (which of course doesn't sound entirely right)
21:57:38thomasjfoxTrue that. So it didn't crash on you yet :)
21:57:56gevaertsThe built-in media player has the same pulseaudio behaviour

22:01:10thomasjfoxHow would that linking look like?
22:01:19gevaertsi.e. link the system volume to the rockbox volume *setting*, not the active one
22:01:29*gevaerts doesn't really know that area...
22:01:57thomasjfoxI'll ask kugel how he implemented it on android. Better yet, I'll look at the code :)
22:02:17thomasjfoxI've found another issue I can't make my mind up yet:
22:02:26gevaertsMaybe we should start thinking about a .desktop file, so mere mortals can run the thing :)
22:02:33thomasjfoxI already have one :)

22:04:21thomasjfoxRegarind the issue I found:
22:04:23gevaertsI will, at some point.
22:04:31gevaertsThat might be next week though
22:04:49thomasjfoxWhen I switch from .mp3 codec to .wav codec, the .wav codec doesn't run. Just outputs "codec failure"
22:04:59thomasjfoxFirst I thought it's also the stack size
22:05:20thomasjfoxThough I increased it from 0x1000 to 0x6000 and it still doesn't work (codec usage is at 57%)
22:05:46thomasjfoxIf I go from WPS back to the main menu an re-enter, the codec works. Strange heh?
22:06:21thomasjfoxIt is also more likely to happen if I really stuff up the playlist (=add all files on the device)
22:06:37gevaertshm
22:06:47gevaertsmaybe kugel knows
22:07:08*gevaerts can do some work on this, but he's at about 600km from his scratchbox installation right now...

22:11:12GuySofthm, can i get the lastfm log to be located on an external memory card? i dont mind compiling if that is required

22:11:45saratogathe codec loading code should handle that, but maybe its not implemented on your CPU?
22:11:50thomasjfoxvolatile won't really help you with this
22:12:00 Join liar [0] (~liar@clnet-p09-185.ikbnet.co.at)
22:12:03thomasjfoxIt just makes sure the compiler doesn't cache the var in a register
22:12:08saratogaalthough i'd expect that on teh A8 they'd have finally got around to fixing all those weird cache coherence issues on arm
22:12:21jhMikeSI know what volatile does and some thing need rereading every time they're compared
22:12:40thomasjfoxVolatile won't help you with hardware reordering
22:12:45jhMikeStechnically the scheduler itself is multicore safe, or PP wouldn't work
22:12:47thomasjfoxAtleast on Intel CPUs. Dunno about the details of ARM
22:13:03jhMikeSARM is no concern really
22:13:05thomasjfoxYou can get away with a lot of stuff if you just add the volatile keyword
22:13:07jhMikeSnot yet
22:13:21saratogaassuming you mean out of order execution, the CPU ensures that everything finishes as if it happened in order
22:13:34jhMikeSwhat am I getting away with? it's technically correct c code or the compiler may decide to cache it
22:13:50thomasjfoxYes
22:14:03thomasjfoxJust think about a multi core system. The CPU might decide to cache it
22:14:52jhMikeSit might, id hope so though I wonder, what is handled by the compiler there?
22:14:54thomasjfoxThis is a good starting point: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2484980/why-is-volatile-not-considered-useful-in-multithreaded-c-or-c-programming
22:15:22thomasjfoxI just burned my fingers on the boost mailinglist recently
22:15:36thomasjfoxLet me look up the thread, it was pretty educating
22:16:09*jhMikeS wonders to what extent this is another "phear threading and cores" take...will find out
22:17:01thomasjfoxor what about atomic increments if two cores try f.e. to increment the "interrupt level" at the same time
22:19:03thomasjfoxjhMikes: Found it: http://groups.google.com/group/boost-list/browse_thread/thread/c6f07525f939967c
22:19:30thomasjfoxNot directly related to rockbox but it easily shows what can happen on Intel hardware
22:20:40jhMikeSthis probably doesn't apply to the sim because the mutexing prevents simultaneous access anyway
22:21:11thomasjfoxI'm more thinking about rockbox as application :)
22:21:47gevaertsWe're pretty single-threaded there as far as the CPU is concerned
22:22:19thomasjfoxThen volatile is enough
22:22:35thomasjfoxOh no scrap that
22:22:51thomasjfoxF.e. the gstreamer backend of the maemo port runs as separate OS thread
22:23:04thomasjfoxThis might run on a different core in a multi-core system
22:23:31gevaertsYes, but it should do locking, and locking should provide barriers
22:23:55thomasjfoxTrue. Let me just find the interrupt_level example I've recently seen
22:24:21jhMikeSthat's serialized with a mutex and condition
22:24:37thomasjfoxTrue. So that's fine, too
22:25:06thomasjfoxI just checked gcc's arm implemtation for atomic operations. They use compare and swap loops to do it
22:26:09jhMikeSswp(b) is deprecated on armv6 (of which no dual core exist right now) and doesn't really work properly on PP targets
22:26:55jhMikeSpeterson's algo was the final choice for PP
22:27:31thomasjfoxPP is the dual core arm also used f.e. in the Rio Karma
22:27:45*thomasjfox is new to these player CPUs
22:29:31thomasjfoxHow is "current_tick" updated?
22:29:34gevaertsIn the rockbox context, the big portalplayer users are older ipods and sansas
22:29:46jhMikeSarm11 has some IMB concerns but not too much
22:30:14gevaertsThere are a few more, but I suspect they're less popular
22:31:12 Quit selectahh ()
22:35:14jhMikeSthimosjfox: in the timer tick interrupt
22:35:26jhMikeS*thomasjfox
22:36:16thomasjfoxGuessed so. Just searching where it is :)
22:43:07*thomasjfox is reading the "ARM11 MPCore Processor Technical Reference Manual"
22:43:42 Quit bmbl (Quit: Verlassend)
22:45:58*jhMikeS gets annoyed at people that apply overly general rules to things about programming that when applied generally aren't really correct
22:47:03thomasjfox;)
22:48:07jhMikeSwho would init things like in that example? it looks like a total race condition anyway
22:49:27thomasjfoxThe code is fine in its current state and adding volatile definately helps against compiler caching
22:50:04thomasjfoxI don't think the compiler is smart enough to detect "thread" context switch performed by rockbox
22:50:36thomasjfoxSo it's a good thing what you are doing. I was just thinking about real multi-core systems like the Cortex-A9.

22:58:34jhMikeSthomasjfox: to my knowledge, the sim has been running on them for awhile now
22:58:37thomasjfoxAt least for ARM newbies like me.
22:58:44saratogai don't see why that would cause a problem
22:59:03saratogawe'll just lock all the threads to one cpu like we do now
22:59:16thomasjfoxsaratoga: That is fine if we can control it
22:59:29gevaertsthomasjfox: why wouldn't we?
22:59:38thomasjfoxA future meego port might not be able to do this or f.e. don't use gstreamer as a backend
22:59:39jhMikeSsaratoga: in the sim, we don't do that
22:59:42fmlSeems so. In order to understand it, one has to know what "application" means, how all the thing are compiled etc. I, for instance, don't know whether a sim build is an "application"
22:59:50thomasjfoxgstreamer uses OS threads to fetch PCM data

23:00
23:00:09gevaertsthomasjfox: yes, but those are well isolated and easy to get right
23:00:11thomasjfoxkugel: I'll look into the volume issue.
23:00:16kugelthe sim can run on multiple cpus, it's using OS threads
23:00:17jhMikeSsaratoga: it's serialized but who know what cores those threads run on, could be any available
23:00:26saratogawell ok, same thing
23:01:11thomasjfoxThe current sim is fine as it locks -every- thread with a global mutex
23:01:19thomasjfoxSo this automatically issues a memory barrier
23:01:26thomasjfox(and is very expensive)
23:01:35saratogawhy is it expensive?
23:01:38kugelthomasjfox: I think we only might run into trouble if the rockbox threads are shared between cpus
23:02:03jhMikeSI sort of lie, the disk IO can leave the serialization and read/write
23:02:03thomasjfoxkugel: Exactly that could happen on a multi-core meego device

23:04:32saratogathe global lock is to make sure each only runs one at a time right?
23:04:35thomasjfoxsaratoga: For the sim that's ok. When I use native threads instead of this approach, we save around 15% CPU
23:04:49thomasjfoxon the n900 f.e.
23:04:52kugelthomasjfox: no, the rockbox threads always run on the same core (if we use our scheduler)
23:04:53kugelthe gstreamer cb is no rockbox thread

23:46:14[Saint]n1s: Almost vertainly, but probably not quicker.

23:55:36Buschel[Saint]: the register contents are correct though
