#rockbox log for 2002-10-07

00:00:12LinusNi think it would be more appropriate to not shut off
00:00:13langhaarrockerThe bass -12 prob is reproducable in the bleeding edge build
00:00:17PsycoXulbut a one-time ask-resume in such cases might be convenient? i dunno, i've always got resume on anyways
00:00:28breakerLinusN: It seems that the bass is set to -12 every time a "auto volume: 0" line is the last line in an .eq file. If I have a "auto volume: 0" line in the middle of the .eq file, the bass is ok. Does that help?
00:00:32LinusNPsycoXul: excellent idea
00:00:57LinusNbreaker: your file has auto-volume last, and that works for me
00:01:35langhaarrockerLinusN: you're using the bleeding edge build, too?
00:01:36LinusNbreaker: look for atoi on
00:01:49breakerYour bass is not -12 when you go to the sound menu? Why is this happening on my unit and at langhaarrockers?
00:01:55LinusNlanghaarrocker: no, i build from CVS
00:02:04LinusNlet me download the lates build
00:02:53PsycoXulthere any way to set/unset the system and hidden attributes of a file on a fat FS through linux?
00:03:04LinusNbreaker: is generated when building the executable
00:03:15LinusNPsycoXul: don't know
00:03:17PsycoXuli figured out why my archos.mod's not showing with "Supported" selected as the filter
00:03:29breakerLinusN: And what does it tell me? Where should I look at?
00:03:45PsycoXulit's cause the factory-installed archos.mod was set system and hidden, and i've never deleted it or changed those (i've always just copied the new file over it)
00:04:08LinusNbreaker: it tells where the atoi function is coming from
00:04:44LinusNPsycoXul: silly Windows behaviour
00:04:51breakerLinusN: librockbox.a(atoi.o)
00:05:37LinusNi tried with the latest bleeding edge and breakers file. it works
00:05:55langhaarrockerThen we must have different recorders.
00:06:04LinusNwait a sec
00:06:26langhaarrockerMine was with V1.17i
00:06:56breakerMine has 1.28 installed.
00:07:13langhaarrockerBut how can that be? Are there different MAS chips in the recorders. I don't believe that.
00:07:38LinusNok, i can reproduce it now
00:07:53langhaarrockerMy recorder is _vintage_ :)
00:09:01langhaarrockerI must sleep.
00:09:14breakerI'll be right back in a few minutes. Only taking another ISP on mondays.. ;)

00:11:28breakerHi again.
00:11:56LinusNbreaker: is internet access expensive in germany?
00:12:42breakerWe have a "Telekom XXL" and that means calls in whole germany for free on sundays. And I was connected with the university.
00:13:10breakerNow I'm online with freenet. That's 0,89 EUR / Min.
00:13:28breaker0,089 EUR. :)
00:14:39breakerI should go to bed. 0,0089 EUR / Min or 0,89 Ct / Min.
00:16:32breakerSo you can reproduce the prob with the latest cvs version. Any idea where to search? The settings.c looks good to me.
00:16:58LinusNi'm debugging wth gdb right now
00:35:03LinusNi found the bug
00:35:53breakerFine. :) What was the problem?
00:35:54 Join elinenbe [0] (
00:36:19LinusNThe channel eq setting saved the value in global_settings.bass
00:36:30 Join hardeep [0] (
00:37:10LinusNi have committed a fix
00:37:15breakerBut why was this only when a auto volume line was at the end of my .eq file?
00:37:28breakerI'll test the current cvs version.
00:37:38LinusNbreaker: poltergeist?
00:37:45elinenbeLinusN: up late?
00:38:08elinenbeLinusN: I do not think the RIGHT button should play a song.
00:38:30elinenbeLinusN: F1+UP = F3 (in menus or directory browser, but not WPS) kind of odd!
00:40:01LinusNelinenbe: tnat os not odd at all if you read the schematics
00:40:13elinenbebut why does it not do it in the WPS?
00:40:36LinusNelinenbe: because the F3 key is filtered out when F1 is pressed
00:41:01elinenbeIt is quite confusing. Everytime that happens I wonder how I got into the menu, and then I have to figure out that it is the F3 button that needs to be pressed.
00:41:31LinusNwhy do you press f1+up?
00:42:13***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
00:42:30elinenbelike I hit F1 to go into the menu, and then up quickly to move the cursor... sometimes I hit them too closely (at the same time)
00:42:36elinenbeand then all hell breaks lose!
00:45:16breakerLinusN: It works now. :) But I saw another thing: I made files "1.eq", "2.eq",... and they don't have a EQ-File-Symbol. Also they aren't executed. I'm not shure, but I think they were executed when I selected them some minutes ago?!?
00:45:23elinenbehere are some nice quotes:
00:45:23elinenbeGo with the Archos recorder 20gb!!! With the Rockbox firmware its the best deal around by far.
00:45:39elinenbeI second that. The AJB20GB recorder is a good choice (with Rockbox!).
00:45:53elinenbeThe work the Rockbox crew is doing transforms the Recorder from a very nice machine to a great one. They seek input from the users, respond to that input and are making the firmware even better. I wouldn't expect that kind of support from Creative.
00:46:12elinenbethis forum and community, along with the rockbox development has definately pushed me towards a bouncy blue-cornered archos
00:46:30breakerelinenbe: Copy-and-paste? ;-)
00:46:30elinenbeI was trying yesterdays daily built and it is awesome. Excellent. Alas now for the recording function to be implemented. The structure of the menus is much better and the cool peak display feature is fantastic.
00:46:35elinenbeyeah :)
00:46:46HadakaI hope the archos guys are listening to those things as well :)
00:46:47elinenbeOnce again, I can't believe what you guys have done with my crappy Archos recorder. Now it is my INCREDIBLE Archos recorder. All my friends envy me now! It has even helped me pick up a few girls (all in the past week!)
00:47:02elinenbeI don't know what to say, but I am speechless. Rockbox is by far the most impressive and incredible project I have ever seen.
00:47:49elinenbethat's all for now!
00:48:10radhardYeah, it's really cool! Just got the compiler running to do some experimenting..!
00:49:51elinenbeIs there an icon for repeat1 yet?
00:52:11breakerelinenbe: At least not in my cvs version from five minutes ago.
00:53:26elinenbewell, there is one in there, but it is just a "1" and it is the bmp
00:55:21elinenbeI am going to edit the icons a little. The font icon and the language icon need to be cleaned up
00:55:43elinenbealso, there is no .txt icon yet...
00:57:00elinenbewhat is the new extension for .eq
00:57:11elinenbeis it .set? or .cfg or something like that?
00:58:18breakerI think it will be cfg in the near future.
00:58:30elinenbeahh.. okay
00:59:19breakerAre you making icons for the player or recorder?
00:59:58breakerIs there a tool to convert a bitmap (bmp/tiff/...) into the format that can be found somewhere in the .c files?
01:00:18breakerOr are you calculating the values by hand?
01:03:00breakerIt seems that all files "?.eq" (only one character) are not recognized as .eq files. Maybe the same with the other file types as well (not tested). Is this a known bug?
01:04:07breakerAt least there's no eq symbol left of these eq files. I'll test mp3 files. Wait a minute.
01:04:27LinusNi see a possible bug
01:05:20LinusN.eq files are only recognized if the file name is longer than 4 characters, including the .
01:06:14breakerA 1.mp3 and a.m3u work ok here.
01:06:35LinusN1.mp3 has 5 characters
01:06:48breakerAh, I see. :)
01:07:10LinusNthat will be "fixed" when we rename them to .cfg :-)
01:07:33breakerAre you shure that all supported files have a 3-character extension?
01:07:50breakerSo no fix for this?
01:08:10LinusNi guess not
01:08:15breakerOK then.
01:09:05breakerAll: Good night. I'll go to bed now.. Bye.

10:28:49langhaarrockerI'm a bit disappointed that I couldn't find anything in the MAS docu for finer control of the spidf in/out. I think spdif principially is capable of sending info when a track changes. But maybe the mas simply doesn't support anything like that.

11:30:18LinusNelinenbe: awake?
11:30:44HesHow often do we poll the keyboard?
11:31:32HesI was at a student party on saturday, played CD's for a couple hours in the morning (around 04-06 AM) and also quite a few pieces from the jukebox
11:32:19Hesfound the latency for starting playback, from pause in beginning of song, unconveniently high for that purpose
11:32:58LinusNwe poll it every 20ms
11:33:37LinusNHes: are you talking about HD spinup time?
11:34:56HesHmm, wouldn't the buffer be filled up already, after i've seeked to the beginning of the song and pressed pause?
11:35:37LinusNHes: describe step-by-step what you did
11:37:16Heswhile in playback, in WPS, not paused click right & left until find the right song, let it play for a few seconds, click on left to make it go to the beginning of the song and press pause before it starts playing
11:37:26Hesthen click play
11:39:22LinusNworks instantly for me
11:41:03LinusNbetter to pause before you press left, btw

20:45:54kezfordI have a 'simple' question regarding installing the firmware on a Archos 6000
20:47:26kezfordI did the build, just as it says to do in the doumentation, and got the resultant archos.mod file (about 74k). I then copied to the hard drive (root, where the old one was), I then rebooted
20:48:07kezfordon reboot the only firmware that is loaded is the in-built one... do I need to do anything else when I install the new firmware?
20:48:35kezfordoo... forgot to say, got the source from CVS
20:50:09hardeepkezford: that all sounds correct
20:50:27hardeepkezford: maybe try a pre-built daily build and see if that works?
20:51:02radhardMaybe you should wait for the 1.4. Sorry, can't tell you more, i've got a recorder. But if the old one works, maybe you should try different configurations...
20:51:44hardeepI'm not as familiar with the player, but I notice there are two versions... one for ROM firmware older then 4.50... are you building the right version?
20:54:20kezfordI have 4.53 on my rom
20:54:34kezford(apologies for the delay in replying... just found out what may be wrong :P )

20:57:09hardeepthe lang.h dependency error is because lang.h is autogenerated _after_ the dependency check
20:57:39kezfordah right :)
20:58:04kezfordplus... I think I did generate the wrong version... sorry... my fault, I may have selected the old version :-P
