00:05:55BlueChipARGH! what is it with me and diff? Can anyone correct this diff command please?
00:05:55BlueChipdiff -u rockbox-daily-20040523/
00:06:23BagderBlueChip: that only diffs those two dirs, not recursively
00:06:32Bagderyou need -r too for that, afair
00:06:43BlueChipd'oh! One day I will suss bash - I promise!
00:06:45midk:D jk
00:07:37BlueChipand one day they will also add "ignore trailing whitespace" to diff !
00:08:17Bagderyeps, that'll be a good day ;-)
00:08:36 Join joeyslls [0] (
00:08:48BlueChipperhaps that'll be my next fun thing to do ...go get the source for diff and do it myself - lol
00:09:30BlueChipperhaps we could consider adding "no trailing whitespace" to the Rockbox coding standard?
00:09:41BlueChip...just an idea
00:10:13Bagdertrailing whitespace is annoying
00:10:26 Join Nibbler [0] (
00:11:03BlueChipI am surprised more editors do not have a switch in them "strip trailing w/s on save"
00:12:56Bagderrecently I've made my default editor setup display trailing whitespace
00:13:22Bagdersince having it stripped automaticly makes so many unintentional changes
00:13:46BlueChiplikewise ...shall I let my plugin.h|c patch strip the trail w/s from it?
00:14:07Bagderit'll just get bigger
00:14:40BlueChipthe patch will be bigger, the result will be smaller Rockbox code :)
00:14:55BlueChipanyway - to hell with diff - it's crap - I'll write the file by hand
00:15:01Bagderyes, but you'll also increase the risk of colliding with other patches
00:15:46Bagder... and changes that is irrelevant to the function you provide is generally not good to include
00:15:55BlueChipanything that patches these files will definitely collide with this patch anyway
00:16:14Bagderonly if they change the same lines
00:16:47BlueChipi would have though that any edits to plugin.h|c would update the plugin_api_version_number!?
00:17:25BlueChip(btw. just to make it clear, that I am not debating the stle for this patch, which I am currently rewriting whatever the outcome of this chat)
00:17:30Bagderthere's no point in doing that in the patch really
00:17:39Bagderbut perhaps it is
00:18:25BlueChipwould take 2mins to create one bloody great bit "strip trailing whitespace" patch anyway
00:18:29Bagdera collide on that line wouldn't be that hard to resolve anyway
00:23:00BlueChipoh ffs this is a nightmare!
00:23:28BlueChipI'll do it some other time - there is whitespace EVERYwhere
00:23:39midkthat's bc's fault.
00:36:27Bagderfun reading
00:37:24BlueChipI still don't get why they don't just simply add their unit to our source and sit back while we do all the work - Knobby by name, Knobby by nature ? LOL
00:38:43BagderI believe they get paid from Neo
00:38:54Bagderso they need to make it look like they do something
00:39:36Bagderthat's what I think, yes
00:39:39BlueChiphehehehehehehe - "Dear Mr Accountant, how would you like to save a small fortune in development costs? ..."

00:44:21BlueChipand yourself?
00:44:25vraathat flew over my head :)
00:44:45vraai put my archos back together and have it on hold until finals are over, or until i feel like trying to fix it again :(
00:44:47BlueChipwriting a plugin so that you can get better sound from your JBR
00:44:54vraaah, that sounds sweet!
00:45:36BlueChipbookmark this: ...that's where it'll be released
00:46:08vraawell it's kinda useless for me right now, i need a working jukebox :)
00:46:14BlueChipwhat's dead?
00:46:35vraaremember a few weeks back i had a fm recorder that was fried or soemthign?
00:47:00BlueChipvaguely, but as you can probably guess, we get quite a lot of that in here
00:47:00vraai'm almost positive my sister used the incorrect adapter to charge the archos so it must've blown a voltage regulator
00:47:07vraai know what ya mean
00:47:16BlueChipahhh, yes, the on your sister killed - I DO remember
00:47:25midki do remember too
00:47:30vraahaha sup midk
00:47:38midkI REMEMBER
00:47:41midkand the webcan
00:47:43midkand the solder
00:47:46BlueChipyou could always connect her to the mains and see if she works well as a replacement adaptor?
00:48:23vraawait.. my sister?
00:49:12midkgo vraa-ey
00:49:42vraashould i just wait for the 4th gen iPod to come out?
00:50:08BlueChipmy only complaint is that they are unhacked
00:50:21vraayeah, that's why i didn't want my sister to order the iPod mini a week ago
00:50:32vraabut where would i get a jukebox fm recorder from?
00:50:45vraai dont trust ebay, sorry :(
00:50:47BlueChipget a v1 - they are better anyway
00:51:00BlueChipfair call - shop around then, they are still available
00:51:07BlueChipJukebox Recorder Version 1
00:51:16BlueChipv1 is easier to type ;)
00:51:16vraado you have a pic of the differences?
00:51:26BlueChipa PICTURE of them?
00:51:34vraa*slaps himself*
00:51:35BlueChipdifficult to show a picture of digital out not working
00:51:46vraawhat's the differences between v1 and v2?
00:52:30BlueChiptheres a link to the table on my homepage
00:52:41vraaopening it up now
00:53:26vraahow come the V1 are better?
00:53:30vraathe V2's look cooler
00:53:54BlueChipif it's looks you are after - buy an iPod
00:54:04vraawell, archos > iPod in looks IMO
00:54:08vraaiPods are played out :)
00:54:12midki think fms are better
00:54:16midkthey are a bit lighter too

11:22:11limbusLinusN: So how do I get the /.rockbox/viewers.config or the new equivalent ?
11:23:02limbusfact is the jpgs, videos and txts are recognised as "supported" files types anymore ony my box.
11:23:50limbuserr. NOT recognised anymore
11:31:33LinusNdid you do a complete reinstall?
11:35:51limbusreinstall ? howto ? I can't flash, so I recompiled everything, copied the ajz, langs, rocks, reboot.
11:38:49LinusNit was mentioned on the mailing list today
11:38:54LinusNmake zip
11:39:56limbusjup, I'm just looking for the new toolset
11:40:40LinusNthe viewers.config file is in apps/plugins/ if you want to copy it yourself

11:53:07limbusyeah, I was just about the second try ;-) it works after having moved the rocks to the new position.

11:54:52limbusit's not getting updated by cvs.
11:56:29LinusNyes it is
11:57:02LinusNperhaps you have forgotten to change CVS server?
11:57:37limbusstrange. I just noticed the same thing. but make still complains if I "make zip"

12:09:35limbuserr. as described in the how-tos. I've always been able to make my rockbox the last weeks
12:10:36LinusNas described in which how-to?
12:10:55LinusNthis one?
12:11:42LinusNor was it this one?
12:12:27LinusNthe first one is the recommended way
12:13:13limbusI don't remember where it came from, but I remember some parts of the text that is on the latter one.
12:13:20limbusi'll try the first method then. thanks
12:13:33limbuswill tke some time
12:13:57LinusNthe second one is a stripped version of the cygwin installation, which probably lacks the zip.exe command
12:15:35LinusNlunch time
12:20:10limbusenjoy you meal
12:26:33amiconnlimbus: Even my Cygwin installation (a quite large one) doesn't contain zip, so "make zip" doesn't work for me either.
12:26:50amiconnI will have to add "zip" to cygwin first
12:27:09limbusbut I can run zip from the cygwin-shell as it is in the path
12:27:32amiconnIs this the real command line version of zip?
12:27:43limbusit's just maybe an incompatible version what's about the parameters
12:27:50amiconnIf not, the parameters used by the makefile may not work
12:27:53limbuswhere to get the "real one" ?
12:28:24limbusis unxutils the real one ?

16:04:45pfavrdwihno, thanks! I'm not sure if it should be done as one mighty change or maybe it could be done through smaller incremental changes. Some of the things has been asked for already (see the feature request links at the bottom)
16:06:33dwihnopfavr: I guess the easiest way would be to do one thing at a time.
16:06:43dwihnoPerhaps the multi-screen thing.
16:07:39pfavrdwihno, yes, but I think it is important to do a consistent design throughout. So that the same keys and principles can be used everywhere.
16:07:55pfavrBut implementing it could be done incrementally
