05:25:35kendellhi. I just bought an iPod fifth gen. looking at the manual I see there are fm radio options. but they don't appear in rockbox. This is because iPods don't have fm tuners built in. but if I buy one and connect it through the dock, can I use it? I looked on the accessories page but couldn't find any
05:26:50kendellaccessories page on rockbox wiki, not apple site.
05:30:12JdGordon1mileage may vary
05:30:22JdGordon1accessory support kinda sucks at the moment
05:30:28kendellcrap
05:30:30JdGordon1so some will work better than others
05:30:31kendellah well
05:30:51kendellI see a bunch of speakers and fm transmitters. but no fm tuners
05:32:13kendellam thinking about selling my iPod to get a different player, but I can't find many competitors. most of the newer players rockbox is either not working on or unstable. most of the iriver ports are beyond my price range, 150 and up. the toshibas are reasonably priced but I don't know if it's possible for me to use it because of the touch pad thing
05:32:46kendellthere's a gigabeat f, but they're kind of difficuilt to locate smiles
05:33:13kendellarg, not again, rockbox just completely crashed, white screen with heavy hdd spinns.
05:38:23kendellby the way, are there any plans to add voice support to plugins menu, database and debug menu? I'm supposed to stay out of there, but plugins and database would be nice :) is it just the voice files that voice the menu uitems, or is there some sort of API that says, here, speak this, don't speak this?

06:43:39kendellhi all again.
06:44:19kendelljust curious, is it possible to make the rockbox sims accessible to screen readers? was trying out one and couldn't read it with nvda, but could see it.
06:48:18JdGordon1nope
06:48:31JdGordon1the sims just draw a bitmap
06:48:39kendellah.
06:48:54kendellso that's why nvda couldn't figure out what it was looking at
06:49:31kendellam trying to find out why the voice support doesn't ectend into certain parts of the rockbox interface.

07:19:35JdGordon1kendell: which parts?
07:19:52JdGordon1there are a few abandoned voice patches on the tracker if you're interested
07:19:54kendellJdGordon1: plugins menu, debug menu and database
07:20:28JdGordon1no voice support in plugins, debug menus dont use the language system, database doesnt use lang system for those strings
07:20:30kendellJdGordon1: sure. I just can't write c c++
07:20:38JdGordon1time to learn :)
07:20:47JdGordon1of those three, the db one is most wanted
07:21:23kendellJdGordon1: so basically the plugins menu will never get it? I'm just curious. I'm not complaining, I just can't access a lot of content because of the plugins and db not working
07:22:24kendellI think I got as far as variables and function calls before I got so confused I had to take a coffee break. then I just never picked it up again smiles
07:22:54JdGordon1there was a GSoC project a year or two ago to add support but unfortunatly it wasnt finished
07:22:59JdGordon1to plugins I mean
07:23:26kendellwould every plugin had to add support specifically or will there be a universal API taht the plugins use?
07:23:45JdGordon1I dont remember what the plan was
07:23:58kendellnod, I just meant if it ever gets picked up again.
07:24:45kendellis rockbox supposed to go to a white screen and lock after transferring files to the iPod video? mine has been doing that a lot lately and I have to hard reset.
07:26:23JdGordon1yes, thats obviously a feature!
07:26:27kendellfifty percent already? oh come on. it's only been off the charger four hours
07:27:28kendellsmiles, don't mind me, not trying to complain, I love rockbox. sounds a lot better than stock firmware. tried playing an mp3 on my iPod before transferring rockbox and couldn't stand it

07:39:59JdGordon1thats probably the one then

13:12:07smkwas looking at MrSomeone's list. in libfaad.c there is a call to malloc(). rockbox doesn't have an implementation of malloc(). so is libfaad not built with the rest of the source?
13:12:52smkspecifically, why is libfaad making a call to malloc() ? how does it work?
13:13:13Torneseveral codecs/plugins *do* have an implementation of malloc()
13:13:22Torneinside that codec/plugin or in codeclib/pluginlib
13:13:35Tornewhat that malloc actually does may vary :)
13:15:06smkso the task of making libfaad malloc-free means replacing calls to malloc with some rockbox specific implementation?
13:15:34gevaertsNo
13:15:40gevaertsWell, as far as I understand
13:15:59gevaertsThe point is to make it not need dynamically allocated memory during operation
13:16:32smkok. so pre-calculate the amount of memory needed and give that much static memory
13:16:59smkor something to that effect.
13:17:17gevaertsmore or less

13:24:19n1swell, yeah, figure out the worst case amount needed and alloc that statically, if that is an insane amount, try to make it less

13:35:00n1smain problem with aac is the mp4 container parser iiuc
13:40:45smkbasic question. since libfaad is a library, everything related to libfaad will be under the same directory right?. codecs/libfaad.

15:21:53anonusis there any way to turn off pictureflow completely?
15:22:34anonusincluding menu items
15:23:28[Saint]Not without editing the source and compiling your own build.
15:24:07[Saint]It's pretty easy to just "not use it" though.
15:24:17[Saint]WHat, can I ask, does removing it gain you?
15:24:21[Saint]*What
15:24:46anonusthrough ../tools/confugure i can do that ?
15:24:53[Saint]No.
15:26:06anonusand if I undefine HAVE_PICTUREFLOW_INTEGRATION ?
15:26:23[Saint]Then that will remove pictureflow integration.
15:26:29[Saint]but not pictureflow.
15:26:45anonusand then I will delete pictureflow.rock
15:26:46[Saint]that should take care of most of the orphaned menus though.
15:26:47gevaertsBut then you can remove pictureflow by, well, removing it
15:27:13anonusokay...
15:27:18anonusanother question
15:27:39anonusi want to write some postprocessing plugin...
15:28:01anonuslike replygain
15:28:26anonuswhere should i start ?
15:29:44Tornethere is no way to do that at present
15:29:57gevaertsWell, not as a plugin anyway
15:30:08anonusyea, i understand
15:30:09[Saint]Oh...if you really care about removing all the menu entries for pictureflow, you'll probably want to look at the HOTKEY code as well.
15:30:29[Saint]HOTKEY expects pictureflow to be present.
15:30:34anonusit is not a 'rock' file, but part of code compiled into firmware
15:30:35gevaertsIt does?
15:30:57anonus[Saint]: thanks
15:31:00gevaerts[Saint]: even if HAVE_PICTUREFLOW_INTEGRATION isn't defined?
15:31:06gevaertsThat sounds like a bug
15:31:15[Saint]Yeah, I seem to remember it does. It's an option for it, I don't think there's targets with hotkey but without PF
15:31:47[Saint]HAVE_PICTUREFLOW_INTEGRATION is just for the WPS, not hotkey iiuc
15:31:47 Quit DerPapst (Quit: Leaving.)
15:32:15Torneyes, you probably do understand correctly but that's still a bug
15:32:19Torne:)
15:32:55gevaertsAs far as I can see it does depend on HAVE_PICTUREFLOW_INTEGRATION
15:33:38anonusif I take replygain.c as basis for my post-processor, can I access mic from there ? or it will be complicated ?
15:34:31*anonus has sansa clip+
15:36:31[Saint]Hmmm, it does indeed. Perhaps I remember this from before hotkey was added to svn, or during one of its many overhauls.
15:41:58anonusanyone ?
15:42:16[Saint]lol. .levels files are built for RaaA
15:43:15gevaertsanonus: I suspect it's not going to be easy. There's no support in rockbox for using the audio codec in full duplex mode
15:44:20anonusi don't want to encode sound to file, i just want to get samples from mic
15:45:03TorneThere's still no support for using the audio codec in full duplex mode
15:45:11TorneIt doesn't matter what you're going to do with the samples
15:45:28anonushm
15:46:11gevaertsThe hardware may (or may not, for all I know) support it, but you'll have to expose that support

16:15:29[Saint]I would expect the only difference to be a few values regarding screen dimensions, and the images themselves. The images should mean that the 480x800 is naturally the larger of the two.
16:16:37[Saint]but in builds I have just made (several times, including a new source checkout in case there was weirdness in my tree) the 480x800 build is 3.1MB, and the 240x320 build is 3.2MB

20:42:17[Saint]I don't think any of my savings would apply to your handset (maybe, what res is it?)
20:42:34bluebrother[Saint]: well, I tried changing the startup code to delete the file after extraction but this didn't seem to work.
20:42:50bluebrotherbut I have to admit that I have no idea about java so I might be doing something wrong here :)
20:43:22bluebrotheranother question: why does Rockbox extract it to /data/data/org.rockbox and not to /sdcard/rockbox? AFAIK it uses /sdcard/rockbox too
20:44:07 Join evilnick_B [0] (0c140464@rockbox/staff/evilnick)
20:44:18bluebrotherhmm, seems Rockbox can't load codec files from sdcard :(
20:44:29[Saint]Hmmm. I found something that simple doesn't add up. I removed ~2.6MB (uncompressed) of files from the .zip, which resulted in an .apk which was .6MB smaller...but the installed size was ~4MB in savings.
20:44:46bluebrotherstrange
20:44:57[Saint]I agree.
20:45:28bluebrotherbasically I have two questions: (1) why package rockbox.zip inside of a libmisc.so and then extract it? Is it not possible to have the contents of rockbox.zip directly in the apk?
20:46:25bluebrother(2) why not extract it to /sdcard/rockbox? The internal space is much more limited than the sdcard, and requiring an sdcard to run is sensible IMO −− you don't have much usable space to store your music on the internal flash anyway.
20:47:11[Saint]Are there many android devices that *don't* have sd?
20:47:54[Saint]forget many, are there any?
20:48:38CIA-87New commit by 03bertrik (r29710): Manual: rephrase a sentence in the installation chapter a bit
20:48:51bluebrotherno idea
20:49:02[Saint]You're quite correct though, even if there is, internal space is limited enough to safely assume the device will have/be using external storage if it's intention is a DAP

20:50:18[Saint]"average joe" couldn't write to the internal storage anyway iiuc.
20:51:28[Saint]so yeah, I'd say assuming an sd is present on Android and writing as much to it as possible is entirely sane, though I'm looking at that whilst not being aware of all the limitations.
20:52:11bluebrothersame here :)
20:52:38CIA-87r29710 build result: All green
20:53:36bluebrotherthe main problem is that my phone told me it's out of internal memory, otherwise I wouldn't be bothered by that :)

20:59:26TheSevenhm, so does anyone have a clip+ rom dump for me?
21:00
21:00:32bertrikno, I don't, but I could put some effort in it
21:01:14[Saint]TheSeven: Guess you're surprised no one ever did it while they had the opportunity to too huh?
21:01:43TheSevenas i said, porting rockbox to that platform was apparently way too easy :P
21:02:59[Saint]It pains me when people follow the unbricking page on the wii, then come here and are like "well, what now?"
21:03:00bertrikdo we have something to dump it already/
21:03:09funmanTheSeven: the ROM isn't a lot more interesting than the OF itself
21:03:10[Saint]"well, you dump an OF image on there"
21:03:24[Saint]"where do I get it?".."I dunno, your problem"
21:03:25funmanbertrik: the debug menu has code to dump the ROM already but for other targets
21:03:31TheSevenfunman: it definitely is, as far as recovery methods are concerned
21:03:43funmangood point
21:04:08bertrikI think it is unfortunate the unbrick page says to unsolder the battery connection
21:04:11funmanbertrik: let me look at this, i haven't touched rockbox for some time
21:04:13TheSeveni have u42p's bugger sitting here on my desk, and no matter what i do, it refuses to the right enter recovery mode
21:04:17bertrikthat's really a measure of absolute resort IMO
21:04:23TheSevens/the right enter/enter the right/
21:04:48bertrik*last resort
21:04:50TheSevenbertrik: what is that supposed to achieve?
21:05:07TheSevenif the device fails to power off by holding power?
21:05:16[Saint]bertrik: in the same respect, you don't want people poking about at random pads on a powered device.
21:05:17TheSevenor when does one need to do that?
21:05:18bertrikto make really sure that it's powered off I guess
21:05:37TheSevenwell, one can do that by other means as well
21:05:50[Saint]how?
21:06:05TheSevenpress power briefly, wait a second, then hold power for 10 seconds
21:06:10[Saint]the players can get into some wicked locked up states.
21:06:10TheSevenafter that, it will always be off

21:06:39[Saint]wait ;)
21:07:50[Saint]That method breaks if the player is in some infinite loop and it's not registering the power button.
21:08:20TheSevenIIUC holding the power button is registered by hardware means like menu+select on the ipods
21:08:27[Saint]this has happened to more than a few people as I understand it, meaning the battery needed to be disconnected by the impatient, or the player left to completely discharge.

23:17:17n1siirc the gplv3 discussion died off with the whole v2/v2+ thing and never picked up again
23:17:48gevaertsWe need a decent discussion about this. Back in 2008 we decided to stick with 2+, but that's a while ago now, and there weren't any real problems doing that back then

23:17:57n1syeah, the binaries under v3 seems sensible to me too
23:17:58saratogai personally wouldn't mind having GPLv3 binaries, 2+ source code, and requiring any code using GPLv3 licensing to have a GPLV3 define around it in case someone needs GPLv2 binaries for some reason
23:18:10gevaertsYes

23:19:14saratogais there a patch?
23:19:27AlexPyeah, don't know it what state now though

23:21:33n1shaving a tts integrated would be a really nice feature imo
23:22:35saratogaonce someone is ready to add the v3 code, just have them add a define around it, and one of the swedes update the download page to say the binary is v3

23:25:35logvelcI've got an MP3 player and got no idea how to change it's user interface. It seems rockbox does but it does a lot more. Is there a concise explanation of how rockbox solves this somewhere?
23:25:37gevaertsi.e. no space when not used
23:25:43logvelcits*
23:25:47saratogadoes what?
23:25:54saratogahas a UI :)
23:25:56AlexPlogvelc: Rockbox is a complete firmware replacement, not an interface tweak
23:26:00n1sexactly, as i guess it will be a couple of bytes
23:26:04gevaertslogvelc: rockbox doesn't "change the user interface" on an mp3 player. It replaces *all* software
23:26:27logvelcok, should've said "firmware" instead
23:26:33saratogawe have a UI by using code to blink pixels on and off to form images and words ;)
23:26:48saratogaalso sometimes sounds
23:26:58AlexPlogvelc: http://www.rockbox.org/wiki/NewPort
23:27:01logvelci'd just like to know what the first nontrivial steps are
23:30:25funmanagree to sacrifice months of man-hours without knowing if it will result in something positive for your player
23:33:20logvelcseems to be more DAP-dependent than i thought
23:33:35Tornewell yes, they are all pretty much different :)
23:34:05AlexPlogvelc: Sure, it is a complete operating system, it has to be written for the hardware
23:34:14logvelcaren't there any nice, non-imperialistic players out there?
23:34:26saratogaif you're asking these questions, you should probably just buy a $25 dollar Clip the next time they're on sale
23:34:51funmanisn't the Clip the King of all DAPs? ;)
23:35:07saratogaits a pretty great player
23:35:07gevaerts"non-imperialistic"?
23:35:40gevaertsIf you mean "using more or less standardised hardware", then no. That's not how the world of small systems works
23:36:11logvelcgevaerts: well, it feels like the developers have gone a long way to force the user to use their crappy code
23:36:33saratogamore like they haven't done any effort to help other people not use it
23:37:36funmanor their bosses didn't allow them
23:38:17saratogaits not really a positive thing, giving out docs and code requires effort and foresight to use hardware with public documentation, and theres very little reason to do that
23:38:42saratogagenerally one picks the best hardware for a given job, not the hardware that will make a couple random people on the internet years later happy :)
23:38:57sideralWhew, I think I now understand how the database is created and cached in RAM. AlexP, your incremental DB update wishlist feature is shaping up on the horizon :)
23:39:07AlexPsideral: woo :)
23:39:14AlexPgood news :)
23:39:23sideralIt's pretty ... interesting
23:39:57logvelcI don't really know how these 'small systems' work. I just think it's odd that they are so different from PC:s. Shortage of storage space shouldn't be a problem these days?
23:40:13AlexPStorage is nothing to do with it
23:40:21sideralThe DB could definitely benefit from some more dynamic memory management than what Rockbox provides as of today
23:40:25gevaertsMaking them similar to PCs would be the single most stupid thing they could do
23:40:50gevaertsFor starters, who would buy a DAP with a battery life of five minutes?
23:40:51n1slogvelc: about 0 need for software back or forwards compatibility, usually custom soc's and a pressure to save every penny tou can on the hw
23:41:05AlexPAnd have a battery that lasts
23:41:09AlexPAd something that is small
23:41:24Tornemost components of a DAP is on a single chip, also
23:42:04logvelcah, battery could be an issue
23:42:11AlexPnot only that
23:42:20AlexPPretty much everything else too
23:42:35gevaertsWhat single reason would there be to make them "like a PC"?
23:42:37logvelcnot storage
23:42:41AlexP?
23:42:56logvelcif i were developing them myself, it would save me a lot of time
23:42:58n1sThe SoC's are very easy to customize these days so a lot of different ones are used
23:43:03saratogaits not even really an issue of batteries or chips or whatever, its more an issue of "doing this would accomplish nothing"
23:43:28saratogaif you really wanted to you could standardize the i2c interfaces of every SD controller, LCD interface, etc essentially like a PC
23:43:30saratogabut why
23:43:38saratogawhat does that accomplish?
23:43:49saratogaits a lot of work for no reason at all
23:44:02Tornelogvelc: the smallest, lowest power PC-like hardware is probably ten times bigger and uses twenty times as much power as the chips they use
23:44:08logvelcwell, that argument alone only says that one shouldn't change things
23:44:29logvelcTorne: i see
23:44:35saratogai sense that you have not understood the argument
23:44:56AlexPThis is a silly discussion about a silly idea
23:45:39n1slogvelc: PC's need to keep compatibility with current software and hardware so they can't change much, these systems can change almost without limit
23:46:28logvelcto me the persuading arguments against "PC-like" vs "all-hardcoded", disregarding the effort to make the change, is: they use more power
23:46:45AlexPand size and cost and effort etc.
23:46:55AlexPand what does all hardcoded mean?
23:47:02gevaertsHow does "PC-like" contrast with "all-hardcoded", and who talks about "all-hardcoded" anyway?
23:47:04logvelcbut are they really significant factors?
23:47:07AlexPyes
23:47:18AlexPAnd all hardcoded doesn't mean anything
23:47:20logvelcdidn't you say storage was not an issue?
23:47:25saratogathis has nothing to do with power consumption or storage
23:47:37n1swhat does "pc-like" mean to you, standardized and compatible or x86 with bios?
23:48:23logvelc"pc-like": i can get 'direct access' to all code the CPU runs. "all-hardcoded": that's not the case
23:48:37logvelcno particular standard
23:48:56saratogathat doesn't really mean anything
23:49:00gevaertsWhat does "'direct access' to all code the CPU runs" mean?
23:49:06AlexPthat makes no sensnse
23:49:12saratogayou can get all access you want to rockbox, doesn't mean we're a PC OS
23:49:32AlexPYou can access the hardware on a dap just as you can on a pc
23:50:08logvelcwell, to stop my player from displaying a menu that seems to think loading the entire playlist before displaying anything it seems like I can't change that code without spending months of man-hours
23:50:25gevaertsAnd you can do that with most common PC OSes?
23:50:34AlexPand how is that anything to do with the hardware?
23:50:49AlexPA PC is a set of hardware that runs software
23:50:52AlexPSo is a dap
23:51:35saratogaheh on a Windows PC, I can easily change the windows source by doing the following steps,
23:52:50logvelcIs it possible to edit the memory of my DAP via the USB connection?
23:53:00 Part domonoky
23:53:03AlexPwhat do you mean by memory?
23:53:24logvelcwherever the stupid code resides
23:53:34gevaertsDepends on the DAP
23:54:04logvelcis there a way to find out?
23:54:10funmanwell it is not our fault, if you want to change things go speak with manufacturers, not us
23:54:38logvelcfunman: that's not a point i'm trying to make. I just assumed you would be informed people
23:54:41AlexPI don't mean to be rude, but if you are asking these questions, then no you can't
23:54:43logvelc(and you seem to be)
23:54:57logvelcAlexP: because they are honest of current ignorance?
23:55:21funmanMajorChanges isn't updated for dot releases?
23:55:49AlexPlogvelc: Because if you need to ask this sort of question, then you aren't capable of doing it
23:55:56AlexPAt this time
23:56:10funmanlogvelc: if you can program, are curious, and want to spend large amount of times then you can do it
23:56:30logvelcAlexP: I'm obviously not able to do it at this time. I'm asking for help what to learn
23:57:23n1sfunman: don't think it has been in the past at least
23:58:00AlexPlogvelc: The difference between an operating system and an application, and some hardware stuff maybe
23:58:08AlexPI'm not sure what to suggest to be honest
23:58:24AlexPI'm sorry, this is coming across as rude :/
