08:50:02[Saint]It does 18pt fone, untill the -T* flags are added.
08:50:26[Saint]then, instead of adding/subtracting ascent/descent it is adding/subtracting from the total font height.

10:16:19bluebrotherhmm. libspeex on Cygwin causes errors when building rbspeex. Using a mingw cross compiler on Cygwin 1.7 (since -mno-cygwin isn't supported anymore) reveals no mingw version of libspeex around, and the installer also doesn't find one. When building as cygwin binary it causes other errors.

10:17:13bluebrotherbut since rbspeex has been built with -mno-cygwin it would make sense to not link with libspeex anymore and instead use the one from Rockbox sources, and try to figure if we're on Cygwin 1.7 to fix the -mno-cygwin issue
10:17:27bluebrotherany thoughts? I think I have that working ...
10:25:54[Saint]it fails with a gcc with the -mno-cygwin flag present also.
10:26:32*[Saint] just tried building a voice file with gcc 3.4.4 )cygming special) with no joy.
10:26:52[Saint]4.5.0 produces the error you just mentioned.
10:27:07bluebrotheryou are supposed to use mingw32-gcc instead of gcc
10:27:17bluebrothergcc -mno-cygwin that is
10:27:23bluebrotherwhich works fine for me
10:27:47bluebrotherbut only if I don't try to link against a system libspeex, since there is no mingw32 libspeex available

12:54:35bertrikWould a nice and improved resampler be a good idea for GSoC 2011?
12:56:19pamauryI can't understand some chip use a HID based interface for recovery mode. DFU would be *much* more sensible
12:56:56pamauryor even a stupid interface with a single bulk out !
12:58:29bertrikpamaury, the advantage of HID could be that you don't need a driver for it on windows
12:58:48pamaurytrue, but doesn't windows has a dfu driver ?
12:59:24pamauryI mean, DFU is a standard after all !
13:06:06amiconnbluebrother: For solving the -mno-cygwin issue we need to check for native gcc version. It has nothing to do with cygwin 1.5 vs. 1.7
13:06:48amiconngcc 3.x on cygwin 1.7 still supports -mno-cygwin
13:07:39amiconnI'm not sure about the rules that decide which gcc version gets installed
13:08:22amiconnMy cygwin 1.7 setup had gcc 3.x first - installing a few -dev packages months later and the installer decided that it needs to upgrade to gcc 4
13:09:04pixelmaAlexP: soft keylock only working in the WPS is not a real bug, just that the design decision earlier was to not have it in the lists (idea is: you only need to go there to chose new music). You could discuss about the radio and recording screen but their keymaps are already very crammed
13:09:16bluebrotheramiconn: well, for me gcc says "gcc: The -mno-cygwin flag has been removed; use a mingw-targeted cross-compiler."
13:09:32bluebrotherand I can install a gcc-mingw32 package from the installer
13:09:34AlexPpixelma: OK, thanks
13:09:39amiconnAnd what does gcc -v seay?
13:09:48bluebrothermingw32-gcc doesn't complain about -mno-cygwin
13:09:56AlexPpixelma: Could you say that there? :)
13:10:52amiconnbluebrother ^^
13:11:21bluebrotherTarget: i686-pc-cygwin
13:11:33amiconnVersion is the important part
13:11:50bluebrothergcc version 4.3.4 20090804 (release) 1 (GCC)
13:12:08amiconnYes, so it's gcc 4
13:12:25bluebrotherdo we want to keep using gcc3 then?
13:12:36amiconnThat's my point - if you have cygwin gcc 3.x, it still supports -mno-cygwin
13:12:50amiconnI'd say we should use whatever is there
13:12:53 Join benedikt93 [0] (~benedikt9@unaffiliated/benedikt93)
13:13:06amiconnSo the check should be for gcc version, not cygwin version
13:13:32bluebrotherthat could of course result in a binary linked to cygwin-1.dll
13:13:48bluebrotherwhich happens if I use gcc4 without -mno-cygwin (unsurprisingly)
13:13:56***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
13:14:27amiconn'configure' should check gcc version, and if it's gcc4, switch to gcc-mingw32 (and complain if it's not installed)
13:14:53*amiconn rarely uses the cygwin environment these days
13:14:56bluebrotherthat doesn't work if running make in the tools folder manually
13:15:27amiconnI mainly use it for building voice files, and there it doesn't matter whether rbspeexenc needs cygwin1.dll
13:15:33 Join ruskie [0] (
13:15:34bluebrotherbut speaking about rbspeex*, is linking not to cygwin-1.dll really an issue? Do we distribute it separately at all?
13:16:16amiconnWell, it's needed as a separate binary for voicebox (which is apparently still in use)
13:16:28bluebrotherso we could safely just remove the -mno-cygwin, and in case someone wants to distribute a binary of rbspeex* he needs to either build using mingw or also ship cygwin-1.dll
13:17:04bluebrotheris voicebox updated often? You should need the binary just once :)
13:17:04amiconnI guess that for rbspeexenc it could be removed; there are more tools built which all need checking
13:17:16ruskieso I got a sansa clip+ and am trying to figure out rbutil... from the select device dialog it seems that I need to point it to a mount point not a device file... and autodetect fails to detect it as well
13:17:36ruskiealso I downloaded the latest available build of rockboxutility from the site and it keeps claiming there's a newer version
13:17:37*bluebrother wants convttf to work when built with MinGW and / or VS
13:17:45amiconnNo, voicebox is rarely updated. We'd only need to update the binary if there are important bugfixes
13:17:49bluebrotherruskie: you're on Linux 64bit?
13:18:09bluebrotherruskie: that's a known issue and fixed in svn. Just ignore it.
13:18:36ruskiebut it's correct that I need to point it to the mount point?
13:18:42bluebrother1.2.9 shouldn't complain anymore about that :)
13:18:47bluebrotheryes, you need to point to the mount point
13:19:31ruskiewould help if it said mount point not device in the dialog for selection
13:19:47bluebrotherhmm? It does speak about mount point
13:20:16ruskieSelect your device in the filesystem: -> Browse to the destination folder:
13:21:08bluebrotherwell, speaking about mount point will confuse all non-linux users
13:21:20 Join JdGord [0] (~AndChat@
13:21:46AlexPAnd quite a lot of linux users these days
13:21:47bluebrotherand after all it talks about _device_, not _device file_ ;-)
13:21:55ruskiefor me device == device file ;)
13:22:05bluebrothernot for me (also linux user btw)
13:22:16AlexPI think we expect those who know what mount points are to be able to cope with this :)
13:22:25bluebrotherbut yeah, it's possible to improve that. But honestly I'd like to change quite a bit of the GUI anyway
13:22:42ruskieyeah I assumed that it wanted a mount point once I figured out it didn't list devices
13:23:10ruskieodd that it didn't autodetect... but it said it tried 4 devices and none of those was valid...
13:23:20ruskieI have a ton of sdX devices
13:23:41bluebrotherare you running it as root?
13:23:46ruskietried both user and root
13:24:09bluebrotherplus, autodetection isn't 100% reliable for all devices. We have some devices we can't detect the mount point at all
13:24:27ruskieis the autodetection relying on stuff like udev?
13:24:29bluebrotherunless someone explains me how I could resolve USB ID -> device file
13:25:31bluebrotherno. It tries various things: check USB IDs to figure the correct device. Check for special files in the filesystem. Check for special markers on the drive (firmware partition on Ipods and AMSv1)
13:25:49bluebrothercheck for Rockbox files (once you have Rockbox installed detection works 100% reliable :)
13:26:49ruskiehaven't yet gotten to that point
13:27:07ruskiesince I first want to try if it actually works out-of-the-box... then I'll get rockbox on it
13:28:16ruskiealso will the clip+ charge normaly via usb through rockbox?(I've read some bugs about it and someone that uses it mentioned some issues with charging)...
13:28:23bluebrotherthe installation usually only needs to write files to the device, hence we don't need the device file at all. There are a few exceptions (like Ipod bootloader installation), but those steps are usually just necessary once
13:29:18*bluebrother doesn't own a clip+

13:38:49MazlinG[Saint]: yeah i read that, but people can quietly get on with dev and not tell anyone ;)
13:39:21[Saint]Defeats the purpose of a community, though.
13:39:40[Saint]People aren't in the business of keeping these thigns secret.
13:39:49[Saint]since, they usually need all the help they can get.
13:40:01[Saint]it's a *massive* undertaking.
13:40:36MazlinGbut teh eearly, tentative stages in feeling out whether people would use it, or whether things are possible, is quiet ;)
13:40:47[Saint]Not at all.
13:41:00[Saint]Maybe to you, but, not to us.
13:41:03AlexPMazlinG: Speak to TheSeven
13:41:04MazlinGoh well, we can disagree
13:41:07[Saint]Or those who involve themselves.
13:42:07MazlinGi was just under the impression that the nano 3g wasn't as popular, because it was too small
13:42:18MazlinGi think it is perfect but, you know ...
13:42:36[Saint]It isn't as popular. You're right.
13:42:39benedikt93many don't like its design so much (form what I heard)
13:42:51[Saint]this is sliding offtopic now though.
13:42:57benedikt93MazlinG, I'm actually personally working a bit on this
13:44:10benedikt93but it's a damn lot of work I don't really have the time & experience for to work that fast
13:44:23MazlinGyeah :'(
13:44:34MazlinGespecially if very few can make use of your work
13:44:38bluebrotheranyone using Rockbox Utility on Windows for generating voice / talk files with espeak? I'm considering to remove espeak support on Windows. Since espeak exposes its voices via SAPI I don't see much point in using it via espeak.exe
13:44:38benedikt93also, most of the early iPod side dev work is done over at #freemyipod
13:44:49bluebrotheror are there any advantages I'm not aware of?
13:45:05[Saint]bluebrother: I agree.
13:45:21[Saint]Since it's available with point.

13:46:21MazlinGbenedikt93: pfft, seen the logo at top-left? :E
13:46:33bluebrotherplus it "fixes" this "sEpeak support needs work" but (which I personally find a rather annoying and unjustified "bug")

14:02:45bertrikpamaury, do you have a recovery method too, in case your code hangs?
14:03:58*[Saint] seems to remember seeing that pamaury did indeed find recovery mode.
14:07:03pamauryI'm using the recovery mode
14:07:29bluebrotherhmm −− where did the "use SAPI v4" option in Rockbox Utility go?
14:07:43pamauryunfortunately, currently I must use a crappy windows programs but as soon as I have a solid proof that my code works, I'll rewrite a linux tool
14:09:18bluebrother[Saint]: ok, there is one drawback: w2k doesn't ship SAPI5, and espeak doesn't support SAPI4
14:09:58[Saint]is not supporting w2k much of a drawback? ;)
14:10:07bluebrotherbut are there still people using w2k anymore nowadays?
14:10:38bluebrotherwell, with the espeak command line client you can use it on w2k. Though I'm not declined in dropping that
14:10:48[Saint]it wouldn't surprise me.
14:11:11bluebrotherwell, I'm one of those people still using w2k :) But only for a build setup inside of a VM, not for actual work.
14:11:19[Saint]though I'm sure if we get a complaint about it "your OS is 11 years old" is a valid reason for lack of support :D
14:11:51bluebrotherwe don't support Windows 98 / ME which isn't muc holder
14:13:19mystica555_win98/me are also much different codebases whereas 2k is NT based...
14:14:13bluebrothersure, but from a users perspective that's irrelevant :)
14:15:26mystica555_indeed; but, oldness does not equal ease to support/not support
14:15:38mystica555_at least, not directly without comparing other *(architectural) differences
14:16:30bluebrothersure. Supporting old OSes can be quite a pain :)
14:16:50mystica555_but why? the archigecture changed :)
14:16:57bluebrotheranyway, there might be a reason not to remove espeak support for Windows

14:33:03pamauryTheLemonMan: yes
14:33:21TheLemonManyou have documentation for the bootloader recovery mode ?

14:33:28 Quit smk (Quit: Leaving)
14:34:32MazlinGTheSeven: moot point imho, i was just wondering if anything was quietly going on :)
14:35:24TheSevenwell, we can execute arbitrary code on it, but that's about it
14:35:55TheSevensomeone needs to reverse engineer the hardware init code and write the flash and codec driver and FTL
14:36:20TheSevenonce that's done it can probably share most of the remaining code with the ipod classic, which is very similar hardware
14:41:55domonokybluebrother: i think i hid the "use sapi4" checkbox in rockbox utility some time ago, because it was not working correctly.. :-)
14:50:03pamauryany arm expert ? Reading the imx23, it says which exceptions are recognized and directed to the core; among them is "breakpoint" but I can't find it in the ARM doc so does it correspond to an interrupt vector ?
14:52:59bluebrotherdomonoky: ah, that might be the reason why SAPI isn't working on w2k :)

14:58:31pamauryTheLemonMan: not really, I found a freescale program on the web, it uses some HId report to directly upload a sb file it seems, should be pretty easy to understand
14:58:42pamauryI also contacted freescale to get some doc, we'll see
14:59:02TheLemonManthe bastards down at freescale refused to give me some docs
15:00:26pamaurywhat were you asking for ?
15:02:33TheLemonManthe bootloader docs
15:02:58TheLemonManon the manual it's clearly stated that are freely available if requested
15:03:16TheLemonManbut they said i had to sign a NDA or something that way
15:03:28 Quit factor (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
15:03:55pamauryfor imx233 ?
15:04:10pamauryyes the manual says so
15:04:36pamauryon the other hand, if I manage to reverse engineer just the part we need, that's will be sufficient
15:04:42pamaurydo you have a imx233 based device ?
15:04:52TheLemonManyeah, a samsung yp-q2
15:05:05TheLemonMani hacked the firmware and got code running on leenux
15:05:28TheLemonManbut wanted to do some low level stuff
15:06:25TheLemonManas most of the drivers are just hacks (eg. the framebuffer has just a couple of ioctls implemented and uses tons of proprietary ones to do stupid stuff)
15:07:11CIA-87New commit by 03jethead71 (r29697): Playlists forget to set playlist.started when creating new playlist on SWCODEC and which leads to flush-and-rebuffer messages never being sent again ...
15:08:06pamauryTheLemonMan: do you have access to the recovery mode ?
15:08:27TheLemonManyep, i even tried sending SCSI commands but got no luck
15:08:39TheLemonManwhen i figured it was HID based i gave up
15:08:47pamauryyou can doesn't the windows tool on freescale's website
15:08:57pamaurythe protocol seems pretty easy
15:09:11pamauryI had a keep look with wireshark
15:09:34TheLemonMandoes the tool supports simple inquiry command ?
15:09:53TheLemonManas i dont want to risk to flash something
15:10:07pamaurythe tool is clumsy, there is not doc but I manage to make it download a file to the RAM
15:10:30pamaurybasically you provide a sb file (produced with elftosb2) and it loads it
15:10:58TheLemonManoh, thats awesome
15:11:13TheLemonManlink to that tool ?
15:11:30CIA-87r29697 build result: All green
15:13:51pamauryTheLemonMan: wait a minute, freescale's website isn't working great at the moment
15:13:57***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
15:14:15TheLemonManthanks :) btw did you capture the traces on windows or using a vm ?
15:14:34pamauryI used a vm and capturing everything with wireshark
15:14:41pamauryworks great with this tool
15:15:10pamauryWhile I wait for the website here is what I think the protocol might be
15:15:10TheLemonMani think i'll do the same
15:15:29pamauryAll commands are sent with the SET_REPORT command
15:15:55pamaurythe first one has a report ID of 1 iirc, and contains some data (always the same iirc, no idea of the meaning)
15:16:14pamaurythen it directly sends the sb file
15:16:42pamauryeach transfer is made up of 1025 bytes: '2' and then 1024 bytes of data; always with report 2
15:16:51pamauryI didn't check if there was a final report at the end
15:17:08TheLemonManthe ID 1 might contain some handshake data
15:17:21TheLemonManlike a checksum of the incoming buffer
15:17:42pamaurynot sure it's useful since the sb file itself has 2 SHA1 checksums !!
15:17:56pamaurybut you're right, there might be something here
15:18:01pamaurylike the size for example
15:18:44pamauryTheLemonMan: can you reach ?

20:19:42bluebrotherit's basically people are buying what they throw at them, so why create something better?
20:19:59ruskieand they make money out of what??? writting their own half broken implementations of things???
20:20:37ruskiethe way I see it that's loss not profit
20:20:41bluebrotherand then creating the new version which is slightly better so people will spend money on their product again
20:21:40bluebrotherI'm still using an Ipod Mini2g as my main player. Upgraded with a CF card and Rockbox it beats most players available on the market.
20:22:12bluebrotherthe only thing is that it looks less fancy because it's greyscale. Which I don't mind (I like it even better because you can read the display in direct sunlight)
20:22:35bluebrotherhowever, from the manufacturers point of view this is bad: I haven't bought a new player because of this.
20:22:44ruskiewell the players I have are samsung pebble(2 of those) an ipod shuffle 2g and now a sansa clip+

20:24:25AlexPlike AA fonts :)

20:24:31AlexPbuy RB 3.9!
20:24:46bluebrotherAlexP: with a broken convttf? ;-)
20:25:01bluebrotherit still creates nonsense when compiled with MinGW or VS.
20:25:02ruskiegive it a fair price, package it on a nice shinny cd with sources and I'd pay for it most likely
20:25:09AlexPbluebrother: That'll be in 3.10 :)
20:25:42bluebrotherbut speaking about convttf, any objections to change to code so it's c89 compatible? I did that a while ago to be able building it with VS
20:25:43AlexPActually, we ought to create a few AA fonts for the font pack before 3.9
20:26:04bluebrotherdo we have free fonts we can do that with? DejaVu?
20:26:22AlexPI'm sure we can use some linux ones
20:26:27AlexPIf we don't
20:26:36ruskiehmm need to look into converting fonts...

20:34:06[Saint]regarding AA fonts...
20:34:12bluebrotherthe "features" it uses is basically only declaration of variables
20:34:20kugelnot completely yes, but it supports most c99 features. IIRC
20:34:25[Saint]I have DroidSans/Bold converted from 12~50
20:34:31[Saint]it's Apache licensed
20:34:33bluebrotherno, it doesn't support c99 _at all_

20:35:22[Saint]I converted them before convttf went nuts ;)
20:35:41bluebrotherseems we now need :)
20:35:53AlexP[Saint]: Nice :)
20:36:00AlexPHow do we want to name AA fonts?
20:36:07AlexPHave -AA at the end?
20:36:37bluebrothernah, we need something more subtle :)
20:37:04ruskie'+' ;)
20:37:12ruskieor maybe ~ ;)
20:37:37gbl08ma_bluebrother (about yep, it seems so :) now seriously, there should be a site to let users share not only themes, but also LUA scripts, icon packages, and things alike.
20:38:17gbl08ma_IMO the AA fonts should have had a different file extension when support for them was added to RB.
20:38:44bluebrothergbl08ma_: well, I want to create since quite a while. Shouldn't be hard since it's only files with a couple of lines of text. But these days we're getting even more stuff to distribute.
20:39:11 Quit BHSPitMonkey (Remote host closed the connection)
20:39:27AlexPgbl08ma_: Hmm, could do
20:39:37gbl08ma_.aafnt is ok for me.
20:39:54AlexPI'd like to commit some aa fonts ([Saint]'s for instance) to give people some without having to convert
20:40:01bluebrotherwe can still change the extension for aa fonts
20:40:21AlexPWhat do people think?
20:40:26AlexPI don't mind really
20:40:27kugelwhy should we change the extension?
20:40:32kugelit's the same file format
20:40:33AlexPThat might be a bit artibtrary
20:40:48AlexPI'd lean towards just have -AA.fnt in the filename or something
20:41:02*kugel doesn't think naming them differently is necessary, but can understand the desire for it
20:41:13gbl08ma_there should be a site: (or) (or)
20:41:15gbl08ma_btw, why do we need to distinguish between AA and non-AA fonts before selecting them?
20:41:35gbl08ma_won't AA fonts always have a different name from the non-AA fonts that already exist?
20:41:37AlexPgbl08ma_: Some people don't like them, might only want to use one or the other without trying all
20:41:58AlexPgbl08ma_: Of course, but we have loads of fonts and the name gives no hint
20:41:58[Saint]Keeping it named "XX DroidSans/ -Bold" seems a bit weird to me, I don't think there's any obligation to keep the naming scheme is there?
20:42:19[Saint]even though that's what the font is called t seems weird,
20:42:42AlexPI think we do want to keep that
20:42:56AlexPYou need to know the size for themes, and the other bit is just the name
20:42:59bluebrothergbl08ma_: ;)
20:42:59AlexPWhy change that?
20:43:49[Saint]I wasn't suggesting changing formatting with the size, just the name "Droid" seems weird to me to associate with a non-RaaA target.
20:43:56[Saint]But, it's just me.
20:44:07*gbl08ma_ checks is the rockbox SVN includes the source for the website (like many OSS projects do)
20:44:20AlexPgbl08ma_: It does
20:44:27AlexPbut not in trunk
20:44:28AlexPin www

20:45:34AlexPgbl08ma_: themes.r... and translate.r... are separate also:
20:46:01kev2011wasup ?
20:46:10AlexPRockbox related please :)
20:46:33kev2011is there any lua api documentation?
20:46:45[Saint]It's a nice fontset, anyway. I made it for various people complaining about not having large enough fonts for RaaA, and I needed a 12pt one and a 24pt one for a theme. So, I figured "Ah what the hey..." and sat down and converted the range in between.
20:47:06gbl08ma_AlexP: I agree on keeping translate separated from user contributions (although it is a user contribution anyway), but themes should go along with other contribs.
20:47:26gbl08ma_kev2011: unfortunately, not much documentation is out about LUA in Rockbox.
20:47:40AlexPkev2011: Sort of:
20:47:51kev2011ya i saw it but its aweful
20:47:52AlexP[Saint]: Yeah, tis good work
20:48:07kev2011is there any other smaple code ?
20:48:25gbl08ma_sample in the sense of teaching, no.
20:48:29gbl08ma_(I think)
20:48:32AlexPkev2011: Only the (one?) plugin in svn
20:48:44kev2011not teaching but like other lua script
20:48:56[Saint]AlexP: It's a whopping 17MB though, which isn't too bad considering GNU Unifont.
20:49:07gbl08ma_kev2011: You can take a look at the (very few) LUA plugins available in the tracker.
20:49:47AlexP[Saint]: Well the current fonts zip is 3.2mb, so this adds 1.3 I think
20:49:54AlexPSo not too bad
20:49:58gbl08ma_kev2011: there is a lua game (pixel painter) and a contacts application (written by me) on the tracker.
20:49:58kev2011so it's the only thing available right now?
20:50:10gbl08ma_key2011: I think so
20:50:11AlexPOther than the code, as far as I am aware yes
20:50:22kev2011i know about pixel painter but not contacts
20:50:30kev2011im gonna check this out!
20:51:04gbl08ma_everyone: the existence of a site for user contributions would motivate the development of LUA scripts
20:51:35[Saint]would it have AI? ;)
20:51:39*gbl08ma_ thinks that he hasn't had much time to look to his LUA contacts plugin
20:51:50kev2011a way better documentation would motivated it
20:52:11*gbl08ma_ also has forgot to check pixel-painter on the official build.
20:52:29[Saint]that's where people like yourself that care enough about it to want it come in handy.
20:52:38[Saint]coupled with the fact we have a wiki.
20:52:44gbl08ma_I posted some sample code to the PluginLUA wiki page
20:52:53[Saint]good job!
20:53:08gbl08ma_my intention was to write a comprehensive LUA tutorial on how to code for RB in LUA
20:53:41kev2011gb108ma did you wrote pixel painter?
20:53:47gbl08ma_but I haven't had time to write it yet. the biggest obstacle is that it seems nobody knows what LUA is able to do exactly on RB!
20:53:51gbl08ma_key2011: no
20:54:31[Saint]gbl08ma_: The source code knows exactly what it's allowed to do.
20:54:42gbl08ma_I mean, it seems nobody is really interested on LUA development amongst the RB community.
20:54:52kev2011i've sucesfuly written my first lua script and run it on my ipod nano 2g :D
20:54:54gbl08ma_Thus, there is very few documentation available.
20:55:46gbl08ma_kev2011: if you have a nano2g, the contacts plugin should run perfectly on it as it was developed using that exact device model :)
20:55:56kev2011yeh :D
20:56:31gbl08ma_About the site, is anyone willing to work on it?

21:00:01kev2011yup i agree
21:00:30gbl08ma_Other thing to be discussed is, what kind of things would that site allow users to share.
21:00:36[Saint]gbl08ma_: Couldn't you just create a wiki page?
21:01:11TheLemonManpamaury: ohai
21:01:27gevaerts[Saint]: themes moved away from the wiki for a reason I guess
21:01:35gbl08ma_a wiki page is a very difficult way to contribute with files IMO.
21:02:13kev2011humm.. gb108ma your script just crashed XD
21:02:28gbl08ma_on the wiki, everybody willing to publish a script or a theme (when themes were on the wiki) needed to have an active wiki account, edit the themes page carefully to not break the whole page... what a hassle!
21:03:02bluebrothergbl08ma_: I don't think allowing _anyone_ to post / share / edit files is a good idea these days

21:03:53bluebrotherthe themes site is limited to themes, and it does quite a lot of checking so people don't misuse it for something else
21:04:22[Saint]specific file types, confirmation email.
21:04:34gbl08ma_Yep, it is true that LUA scripts can be done to do many things...
21:04:48gbl08ma_specially when they have access to filesystem (delete...)
21:05:44gbl08ma_to securely share LUA scripts, we would need to implement Application-Control-Access on Rockbox, making Rockbox buggy like MS Vista :)
21:06:06kev2011gb108ma your script work fine but when you add a contact and you type something then you cancel it crashed
21:06:18gbl08ma_then Rockbox would ask "contacts.lua wants to have access to your hard drive. Allow?"
21:06:27kev2011iim gonna run it on the sim
21:06:46gbl08ma_kev2011: I'm aware of that, don't waste your time running it in the sim
21:07:11kev2011ok ;P
21:07:52gbl08ma_Now that I think on the security aspect of LUA scripts, I'm not sure if it is really a good idea to share scripts...
21:08:24gbl08ma_Given that writing a "rm -rf /"-type script in LUA for Rockbox is very easy
21:08:47gbl08ma_And you don't want to see your player flash contects wiped by a script, do you?
21:08:51kev2011why wiykd someone do that
21:09:15gevaertsPeople do
21:09:21gbl08ma_By the same reason MS Windows has lots of viruses and more are created every day.
21:09:24kev2011for rb ?

21:19:06gbl08ma_A LUA code parser could be written in PHP or CGI (if some doesn't exist already) and if the script returns errors, the site won't accept
21:19:22gbl08ma_or instead of not accepting, it could put the script for manual reviewing.
21:19:50bluebrothersure. But that leaves us to what we currently have with the theme site: some software that does rather strict checking
21:19:53gbl08ma_You see, a LUA code parser won't parse as that isn't valid LUA code.
21:20:06bluebrotherwhich in turn means that you need such a site for any file type users want to share.
21:20:15gevaertsgbl08ma_: no, but presumably something like "" *is*
21:20:26bluebrotherone for fonts. One for fm presets. One for lua. One for ...
21:20:37gevaertsAnd spammers are getting more sophisticated all the time
21:20:51gbl08ma_Fonts are easy as they have a specific file header, no?
21:20:56bluebrothergiven the fact that we already have enough code to write and too less time to do so I wouldn't want to add more work there

21:23:22gevaertsbluebrother: we have to be careful not to go overboard in the other direction either
21:23:24gbl08ma_if people and bots were to post spam on the RB sites, we would have the theme site full of spam, with, for example, themes which backdrop is an ad.
21:23:50gevaerts"We can't check lua scripts, so we won't do *anything*" isn't a good idea either
21:24:50kev2011all of the files that user post are validated by people right now?
21:24:51[Saint]gbl08ma_; the likelyhood of a spambot figuring out what's needed to be a valid theme is so's not funny.
21:25:00[Saint]the themesite is a poor example.
21:25:11gbl08ma_And hey, humans are not sooo stupid as we are making them. if such site lets users post comments, or at least, rate and report items, a way too reported (or bad rated) item (script, font or whatever) would catch the attention of the site admins, no?
21:25:27gevaertsgbl08ma_: yes
21:25:40gevaertsWe need to find a proper balance
21:26:00gbl08ma_about massive bot attacks (1000's of scripts being posted every minute), that's easy to control too IMO
21:26:19gbl08ma_just impose a limit on how much a specific IP can upload per day( or hour).
21:26:52[Saint]you should go solve the spam problems on the forum ;)
21:26:58gbl08ma_that, combined with captcha and email confirmation gives a pretty secure bot protection I think.
21:27:09gevaertsSpam isn't done by bots any more

21:28:28[Saint]saying "spam is easy to solve" is practically laughable.
21:28:42gbl08ma_compare the number of forum posts and the expected number of lua scripts per day
21:28:44gbl08ma_it'd be much easier to check for SPAM fonts and LUA scripts than for spam forum posts
21:29:40gevaertsHow many scripts do we expect anyway?
21:30:07gbl08ma_I don't see more than 10 scripts posted per day. even 10 is a high number.
21:30:22gbl08ma_there will be weeks without posting scripts
21:30:26gevaertsI'd believe 10 per year :)
21:30:29bluebrotherthat doesn't make a script site less a target for attackers
21:30:34gbl08ma_gevaerts: exactly
21:30:40bluebrother10 per decade! ;-)
21:30:49[Saint]that's more likely.
21:30:53gevaertsbluebrother: no, but it does make it at least possible to consider a "moderator queue"
21:30:54gbl08ma_bluebrother: not so much
21:31:24gbl08ma_a moderator queue would be the best solution in the first times of the site I think
21:31:43gbl08ma_if we see we're receiving too many scripts to be possible to check them manually, then we'll see
21:32:04gevaertsOne problem these days is that we also have phone ports. That has the potential to make us *much* more attractive for attackers
21:32:14gbl08ma_personally I have a couple of simple LUA scripts on my player that could be shared on a site like that.
21:32:21AlexP[Saint]: Do you have the bdf versions of those fonts?
21:32:26bluebrothergevaerts: true
21:32:27wtachiif it's that few, you could just have people ask in IRC to have a script posted
21:32:56bluebrothergevaerts: just remove the Android port. It's unusable after all :)
21:33:02gbl08ma_wtachi: like having a page saying "We have these scripts available, contact XXXperson if you want some of them"?
21:33:05[Saint]AlexP: they were converted from a .ttf font.
21:33:10[Saint]I have those, somewhere.
21:33:11*domonoky thinks it would be nice to have more sites for user contributed things.. but it looks like we dont have many people who want to work on such sites.. and they need quite a bit of web-coding for checking etc..
21:33:14gevaertsbluebrother: I agree! That will also resolve the debate about the "mission statement" :)
21:33:26bluebrotherwe have a mission?
21:33:29AlexPI'm under the impression that we have the bdfs in svn
21:33:33domonokyfor example the themesite was still at 3.7 for checkwps (until today)
21:33:40gevaertsbluebrother: no, just a statement :)
21:33:40wtachigbl08ma_: no, anyone can download a script, but only trusted people can upload them
21:33:41AlexPAnd .fnt formats are generated from those
21:33:41gbl08ma_Hey, I don't think it makes sense to interpret LUA from Rockbox in Android anyway...
21:33:44*bluebrother wants to build convttf with VS and have it working, but that's not a mission
21:33:45pamauryTheLemonMan: did you figured out the protocol ?
21:33:51AlexPBut I may be wrong :)

21:34:34domonokys/firmware/software/ and we are fine :-)

The reason I believe this is so, is that *every* single one of the fonts required different tweaks to the ascent'descent and character spacing to get them to appear "uniforom".
21:56:33AlexP[Saint]: Would be good to say that, you can just post this when you get the chance :)
21:57:54[Saint]It would be nice to generate them in this way, but there's no one value you could use as a "recipie" to get a consistent result through the range of sizes.

23:54:28domonokyhm, the themesite seems to have some problems.. i updated the release checkwps binarys today and started a checkwps run, that probably locked it up until rasher kicked it. Now some themes are still not checked with 3.8.1 checkwps binarys... should i start a new checkwps run, or is that too risky ? :-)
