01:08:11midknight2k3Hey. Do you have any idea when the final 2.0 will be out?
01:08:35midknight2k3When about, could you tell me?
01:08:46LinusNwhen it's done, that's when
01:09:01midknight2k3oh goody thanks a lot :P
01:09:17LinusNwhy is everybody so obsessed with 2.0, when the daily builds have the same functionality?
01:09:36midknight2k3I don't know, it's just that it's 2.0
01:09:38BoD[]yeah that's strange
01:09:43midknight2k3It's a final release version
01:09:56midknight2k3Not really but it's 2.0
01:10:04midknight2k3never mind - no idea
01:10:06LinusN2.0 is very close now
01:10:24LinusNit should be out early next week, if everything goes as planned
01:10:31midknight2k3Wow cool
01:11:05LinusNwe need to translate to as many languages as possible, and update the docs
01:11:12LinusNand test the latest bug fixes
01:11:13midknight2k3Oh about the switchable fonts
01:11:33midknight2k3Could you make a .fnt file out of a .ttf file?
01:11:44midknight2k3like a regular windows font
01:11:56LinusNyou need to create a .bdf font first
01:12:07midknight2k3i don
01:12:08LinusNmost font editors can do that
01:12:15midknight2k3know how to do tha
01:12:34midknight2k3What do you use for an editor?
01:12:50LinusNlast time i edited a font i used pfaedit

01:17:37LinusNyou can run it in windows though
01:17:43LinusNusing cygwin

01:19:19midknight2k3what will it do then?
01:19:37LinusNyou need to compile it with cygwin first
01:19:57midknight2k3any ideas for a windows program that can do ttf -> fnt?
01:20:24LinusNthere are lots of commercial ones, but i don't know of any free ones

09:03:10Bagderah, thanks!
09:03:50dwihnoIt's the really good stuff :)
09:03:54dwihnoI ate some this saturday
09:05:07dwihnoI have a question for YOU :)
09:05:13Bagdertry me
09:06:14dwihnoTwo things actually
09:06:25dwihnolcd_puts and lcd_puts scroll...
09:06:44dwihnoI copied those functions and applied the needed stuff to invert the data
09:06:56dwihnonamed them lcd_puts_invert and lcd_puts_invert
09:07:16dwihnoAs far as I can see, there are one a couple of things that could be done
09:07:57dwihnolcd_puts COULD have an invert flag (instead of a separate function)
09:08:19dwihnoLikewise with lcd_puts_scroll, but then we need additional code to clear the invert flag when it isn't wanted.
09:09:55dwihno(unless you think it's sexy to have inverted scrolls in the WPS) ;)
09:10:01dwihnoIt looks a bit funky though :)
09:10:49dwihnoSo what do you think Bagder?
09:11:29Bagderwhat is the question again? :-)
09:11:42Bagderwhere the flag would go?
09:12:12 Quit Manlangley ("Client exiting")
09:14:26dwihnoWell, lcd_puts could have an additional argument to set the invert flag
09:14:34dwihnobut that would break stuff since players won't do that.
09:14:52Bagderand it would basicly only be used in the dir browser, right?
09:15:04dwihnoand the menu
09:15:09Bagderah, right
09:17:21 Join Zagor_ [242] (
09:17:30BagderI would vote for a new function, lcd_puts_emph()
09:17:42 Nick Zagor_ is now known as Zagor (
09:17:43Bagderthat if the flag is set, makes the line reversed
09:17:57Zagorwhy not _rev() then?
09:18:03Zagor_emph() sounds like bold to me
09:18:24Bagderbecause it allows us to add other options in the future without getting a weird function name
09:18:37dwihnowhat about _invert?
09:18:39Bagderok, lcd_puts_cursor() then perhaps
09:18:48dwihnosince we have invertrect functions and stuff
09:19:05BagderI just thought that what if we want the cursor line bolded instead of reverted in 2.1?
09:19:30Bagderit would thus make sense to use a generic name
09:20:13BagderZagor: I read your recent debian q, and you sure got a weirdo answer I didn't like
09:20:51BagderI couldn't find any answers in those links he pointed out
09:20:53Zagori'm digging further
09:21:19Zagori've posted to debian-devel now
09:21:56BagderI spotted a rockbox question in the other day! ;-)
09:23:14BagderI do google newsgroups a lot ;-)
09:23:38 Join LinusN [200] (
09:25:20BagderI built a new rockbox this morning, copied it to my archos and when I got to work, it boots up in... archos fm! ;-O
09:25:50Bagderterrible way to start a week
09:26:22LinusNthat sucks
09:26:29dwihnoSo what should I do?
09:26:33dwihnorename the functions?
09:26:47LinusNBagder: too big file?
09:26:58dwihnoYeah, the file is probably too big!
09:27:02BagderLinusN: possibly, its a bit hard to tell like this
09:27:06dwihnoScramble should have some kind of alert for that.
09:27:18dwihnoif (filesize > magic_limit) barf();
09:27:19LinusNdwihno: good idea
09:27:22Bagderindeed, scramble should alert
09:27:28dwihnoYay for me!
09:27:37dwihnoNow tell me what to do about those invert stuff :)
09:27:45LinusNBagder: does the daily build script rebuild the tools as well?
09:28:06BagderI think so... I'll check
09:29:43BagderI'll make sure it'll do that in the future
09:30:31 Join matsl [0] (
09:31:10dwihnoSo what about the lcd_puts_invert & lcd_puts_scroll_invert? :)
09:31:11Bagderthe cvs status/bleeding edge script does
09:35:22*dwihno feels ignored
09:35:36Bagderdidn't I state my opinion?
09:36:40dwihno_emph, even...
09:36:52dwihnoBut what kind of arguments should it take?
09:37:15dwihnoA char or an int with flags indicating what fancy stuff you want to do
09:37:38Bagderno, I would think the fancy stuff would be config options
09:37:40Bagderlike this:
09:38:03Bagderlcd_puts_fancy() { if(inverse_please) lcd_puts_inverse() else lcd_puts(): }
09:38:15dwihnoyou are so true
09:38:18dwihnoSome kind of wrapper thingy
09:38:22dwihnoI will fix that.
09:38:33dwihnoYou are good at explaining :-)
09:38:44Bagderthat way, you can have a plain #define to get the player version without any overhead
09:39:05Bagder#ifdef PLAYERDUDE #define lcd_puts_fancy(x,y) lcd_puts(x,y) #endif
09:40:07dwihnoplayers can't do fancy stuff
09:40:27dwihnoDitch rocklatin and make fancy stuff instead ;D
09:41:44dwihnoIs it okay to have the _invert functions and then wrapping them?
09:41:57dwihnoso lcd_puts_scroll_invert and lcd_puts_invert can stay?
09:42:06dwihnoin the future, we might have lcd_puts_bold
09:42:30dwihnoand lcd_puts_slant
09:42:36Bagderyes, I think so
09:42:53Bagderand lcd_puts_3drotating()
09:44:19dwihnolcd_puts_emph should be a recorder-only thingy then.
09:44:50Bagderbut you can use a macro-thing as I showed above to hide that fact in the code
09:45:55dwihnoI think lcd_puts_emph will be good. Then just using an if (global_settings.invert_cursor)
09:46:07dwihnoto determine the invert status
09:46:09dwihnowill be good, ja.
09:46:31dwihnoDat will be goot, da.

11:14:35langhaarrockerLinus: Do you have any plans to prepend id3 tags in situ? Without copying the file but some magic fat tricks?
11:17:23LinusNthere are few occasions where this would be practical
11:17:47LinusNall you can do is to prepend an entire cluster
11:17:55LinusNand that might be as big as 64K
11:17:58langhaarrockerThat's what I meant
11:18:14LinusNand i'll still have to move around the old ID3 tag
11:19:06langhaarrockerI wasn't aware that there are situations where you want to prepend data when an id3 tag already exists.
11:19:39LinusNimagine that there is atag, but no room for the Xing header, which must be between the ID3 and the first audio frame
11:21:16 Join TotMacher [0] (
11:21:39langhaarrockerI'm just a bit worried about very long recordings. There might be occasions you don't want to copy the file on batteries or even don't have enough space on the hd.
11:22:21LinusNyeah, i know
11:22:49LinusNwe can always add a cluster and move the old tag
11:23:04LinusNand waste 64K

11:25:18langhaarrockerSchnueff: moin
11:29:21langhaarrockerLinusN: In my private secret dreams inserting id3 / xing header works like this:
11:29:21langhaarrocker1.) Always prepend a cluster (wasting 64k)
11:29:21langhaarrocker2.) (optional) User triggers an action that shifts the file to get rid of the waste.

11:42:30langhaarrockernot directly
11:42:48hitsujihmm. i had to do playlists??
11:42:51langhaarrockerYou can build a plalist file with rockbox that contains all subdirectories.
11:43:09hitsujihm, shit.
11:43:51hitsujiit is possible to implement this?

11:49:59BagderoKin: try it yourself and you'll see
11:50:30LinusNbut that is only true for 1.4, the upcoming 2.0 has lots more
11:50:35Bagderrockbox makes your Archos usable
11:50:52BagderLinusN: that comparison chart is for cvs code too, so its 2.0 compatible ;-)
11:52:38dwihnoLinusN: *BOING*

12:01:27LinusNthen you can boot that from rockbox if you feel like running it

12:51:17LinusNwell, we can warn of course, but can you think of any case that we explicitly want to create such large files?

17:59:26The_Supernerdif anyone checks the log, heres a story. I decided ihen i first started using rockbox that i'd delete rockbox after a month for 1 day to see how much more feature-rich rockbox is than archos. ->
18:00:25LinusNouch, that must have hurt
18:01:05The_Supernerdi just did it today and im not liking this at all... i miss my shortcuts, my menu's and my volume. It sounds too raspy. Although the bass does have more richness to it, it's not worth it to not have rockbox.
18:01:30LinusNwe will work on the bass after 2.0 is released
18:01:49The_Supernerdim not going to make it the whole day, and cool. I love rockbox.
18:02:04The_Supernerd2.0 sounds excellent
18:02:21The_Supernerdill of course stick to my "Geeky" daily builds.

18:10:22The_Supernerdoh, im using the most updated right now, but even when i went back to archos, im still getting these problems
18:10:50LinusNsounds like a bettery or hard disk problem
18:11:38The_Supernerdwell, i was never able to turn off power saver, because i originally loved it. The next version had no option so was it maybe stuck turned on? Oh, bnattery.. damn.

18:13:56LinusNeeeh, with a new set of batteries...
18:14:19The_Supernerdwould i be able to use alkaline if i dont try to charge them, or would it destroy it?

18:14:34LinusNalkaline may kill it
18:14:53The_Supernerdoh ive done that many of times, because it wont tourn off when it freeses and i have to rip them out.
18:15:31The_Supernerdhow about cadmium, i have a few of those from cordless phones laying around.
18:15:56The_Supernerdehh, damn. Im screwed for now.
18:16:47The_Supernerdare there any other ways to tell its the batteries besides the debug? I usually still get 5.8 volts and get battery of 8+ hours.
18:17:08LinusNit may be the hard drive
