00:49:13*[Franklin] gives up on wolf for now...
00:49:28[Franklin]perhaps something REALLY simple
00:51:30*[Franklin] obviously sucks at porting
00:52:06[Franklin]perhaps a checkdisk plugin?
00:52:12*[Franklin] really needs that
00:53:49[Franklin]or this:,42476.0.html
00:53:52[Franklin]as a TSR plugin?
00:58:23[Franklin]or I could always fix XRick up
01:06:15[Franklin]Does yield(HZ/1000) do any good?
01:06:21[Franklin]sorry, sleep(HZ/1000)

01:35:24[Franklin]here's the whole code:
01:35:25[Franklin]void sys_yield(void)
01:35:25[Franklin]{ rb->sleep(HZ / 1000); /* sleep 1 ms */ rb->yield();
01:35:26DBUGEnqueued KICK [Franklin]

01:36:21[Franklin]which syncs to tic
01:36:36 Join xorly [0] (
01:36:50[Franklin]so it randomly sleeps between 0 and 10 ms?
01:36:54[Franklin]very useful.
01:38:13gevaertsIt's basically the same as yield()
01:38:52[Franklin]so I should just take it out?
01:38:58gevaertsI can't imagine why you'd want to yield() twice

01:39:15[Franklin]not mine :)

09:43:14wodz[Franklin]: You really should start with something simple. You produce lots of unnecessary buzz which really has no chance to yield anything useful. You should understand the basics of embedded programming first. There is a reason why we don't support C++ nor regular malloc.
09:46:10*[Saint] is still waiting for:
09:46:15[Saint]A - the Linux port
09:46:26[Saint]B: - the entirely new OS port designed from scratch

09:46:41[Saint]...I'm sure there's more.

10:02:13wodz[Saint]: could you please retest latest usb driver incarnation on 6g and n2g? It doesn't work on 7's ipod and I am interested if this is general or you have some super special device which does not have any problem.

10:36:17[Saint]Like, quite a few names, actually.
10:36:36[Saint]Daniel is the only one that's actually drawn a definite line in that sand.
10:37:18[Saint]People have been slowly falling off the project and neglecting to tell anyone whether ot not they would still like to be involved for a while now. Is what I meant.

10:53:19[Saint]Right. Good point. I guess would like to be involved is better changed to can actually be involved.
10:59:28TheSevenright now I have a dozen such projects waiting to be finished (with quite a bit of money invested in some of them), I'm going to have a fairly busy winter term at the university starting right after that exam, and I have a paid job that will take up quite some time from mid october to about the end of the year, not much time left :/

16:42:36copperthe Cirrus Logic DAC in the iPod Classic outputs pretty much perfect 16 bit performance
16:42:38[Saint]My assumption reading it is he or she thought the aforementioned snake oil added said DAC.
16:43:02Dynionive recently listened to a fiio, and it barely beat my phone

16:48:16Dynionand i walk about 5 miles every day
16:48:39Dynionso headphone jack usually dies because of the constant movement
16:49:11copperI can't imagine how that would happen
16:49:24Dynionwell... im left with mono-audio
16:49:30copperanyway, portability-wise, can't beat the Clip+
16:49:57Dynionclip+ is a cool device, decent audio, and pretty much sizeless
16:50:15Dynionbut the classic is such a huge improvement
16:50:20copperover what?
16:50:25Dynionsound quality
16:50:35coppernot really, no
16:50:55[Saint]Yeah, no. Its really not.
16:51:01Dynioni had a clip (without the +)
16:51:05[Saint]An improvement, sure.
16:51:11copperand the iPod has higher output impedance
16:51:11[Saint]A huge one? No.
16:52:09Dynionis there a difference between clip and clip+?
16:52:21copperolder and newer
16:52:24[Saint]Need moar A+B device rmaa overlays.
16:52:35Dynionbecause clip sounded like a lovely mp3, and classic like hifi to me
16:52:46[Saint]Looking at two images is for plebs.
16:53:12Dynionbrb, got to go
16:53:22Dynioni'll try aniother sansa sometime

18:26:13DiaTommyHey guys
18:26:43DiaTommyIs there a stable version of rockbox for YP-R0 ?
18:28:51DiaTommyAnd to @Lebellium : How can i downgrade 2.20 down to 1.25? just putting the rom file into the play wont work, it gives me an error when installing
18:29:59lebelliumIt's stable enough for a daily use
18:30:20DiaTommydo you mean rockbox or 2.20?
18:30:30lebelliumwell, 2.20 too
18:31:12DiaTommyI used rockbox about 6 Months ago on my YP-R0, it kept crashing
18:31:52 Quit kugel (Remote host closed the connection)
18:32:06lebelliumthen you should have reported the problem
18:32:20DiaTommyI could give rockbox another try if its better now
18:32:40lebelliumnothing has been done for R0 over the last 6 months AFAIK
18:33:12lebelliumanyway, why do you want to downgrade from fw 2.20 to 1.25?
18:34:09DiaTommywell, there are 2 problems:
18:34:16 Join kugel [0] (~kugel@rockbox/developer/kugel)
18:36:00DiaTommy1. The music i play sounds weird, there are parts of music which should be in other tracks in the track im listening and sometimes, it ends to soon and/or starts in the middle
18:36:19DiaTommyI listened to the music on windows, the files are not damaged
18:38:26DiaTommy2. After some time, the player with just stop playing music, saying "couldnt find file" and crashs
18:39:06DiaTommythen, when i try to start it, it would stay at the samsung logo until the batterie dies and then it works
18:39:18lebelliummaybe your filesystem is damaged
18:39:24lebelliumbut that has nothing to do with fw 2.20
18:39:28lebelliumit's the same as 1.25
18:40:50lebelliumyou should format the device
18:43:58DiaTommyokay, ntfs?
18:44:15lebelliumno way!
18:44:38lebelliumyou would never format a MP3 player in NTFS
18:44:42lebelliumunless you want a brick
18:45:00lebelliumit's FAT32
18:45:55DiaTommyoh okay, i have a unbrick-cable, that wouldnt be a problem :D

20:50:51saratogaapparently the AMSv2 PCLK really can be set to 120 MHz
20:51:13saratogabecause with that patch, Vorbis decoding goes from 49.81 MHz to just 20.93 MHz
20:51:54saratogaprobably due to that annoying MDCT optimization for PP that saves memory but makes memory access really random and cache defeating

21:28:04saratogayeah you'll probably just destroy the player
