Subject: Cowon D2 EABI

Cowon D2 EABI

Hi all,

I noticed today that the Cowon D2 build has been switched to using the
EABI compiler. I'm sure this would be good thing if it actually worked :(

While Rockbox boots and I can play music, numerous things are broken:
the touchscreen does not work at all, backlight fading does not work,
and the RTC displays --:--. The common factor in all these things is
the PCF50606 PMU driver, so it looks like the new compiler has broken
something in that area (most likely the timing of the bit-banging, at a
guess).

At the moment I do not have the new compiler installed, nor the time to
do so and investigate a fix. So can I ask that this change is reverted
until it is tested and working properly, and also that in future
significant changes like this aren't committed until somebody has (even
briefly) tested that it works? Obviously I know I haven't been around
here too much lately, but I'm certainly not the only person on this list
with access to a D2.

I realise the D2 is an "unstable" target, but there are quite a
significant number of users who rely on the current builds to actually
work, and I think this is something we should aim for at all times
(obviously within reason).

Regards,

Rob.
