04:30:15iSheepHi folks
04:31:11iSheepI have a question about Archos/Rockbox. I have an FM 20GB recorder, and I was wondering how (if it's possible) to make the Archos be seen in DOS as a drive letter
04:31:19iSheepBasically a hard drive in DOS
04:31:46midkplug it in, turn it on..
04:31:58iSheep:-\ Tried that
04:32:09midkin a command prompt under windows, or running DOS itself
04:32:12iSheepArchos turns on, but it's not a drive letter
04:32:21iSheepJust DOS itself
04:32:30scott666you might need a special driver
04:32:33scott666or something
04:32:36midkyou could plug the hard drive right into your pc//
04:32:37scott666have you googled?
04:32:49scott666im pretty sure its possible, but i think theres a trick to it
04:32:57iSheepscott666: Nope. Do you know what I would look for?
04:33:29scott666id start with dos usb harddrive and go from there
04:34:01iSheepoh okay.. I guess the Archos is similar to any other USB hard drive, huh?
04:34:14iSheepmakes sense
04:34:40iSheepThanks for the help. I'll go surf around
04:34:47scott666midk: did you see this:
04:41:13midkyes i did
04:41:15midki fixed it

09:05:06[IDC]Dragongood morning!
09:06:20midkmorning idc
09:06:43LinusNmidk: anything, really, just wondering if you managed to make use of the raw button reading
09:06:43midkLinusN, as far as breakout goes, i haven't really picked up where i left off yet
09:07:00midkstill a lot to (re)do
09:07:11midki still have grayscale code right in the plugin
09:07:14midkthat's how old it is
09:08:00LinusNmidk: have you looked at my new cfg file saving stuff?
09:08:36midkanything in particular that should interest me?
09:08:37LinusNnice for persistent storage of settings
09:08:44LinusNwith version control
09:08:49LinusNfor plugins
09:09:04midkthat reminds me - i (need/want) to implement different settings file loader
09:09:17midkhmm, sounds neat, i will indeed have a look
09:09:31LinusNyou want to load settings from different files?
09:10:49midkfor example, car settings and home settings?
09:11:00midkwell it was just an idea really - i hadn't yet formulated a reason for it.
09:11:37LinusNtalk about bloat
09:11:46midk*scratches idea off list
09:12:07midkas far as bloat goes - i'm going to need to add in quite a few bitmaps for fuzzy mode
09:13:37LinusNwhatever is necessary
09:13:47LinusNwhat bitmaps btw?
09:15:23midki'm going to need,,, "Five" "Ten" "Quarter" "Twenty" "Twenty-five" "Half" "past" "til" "o'clock" "1" "2" "3" "4" "5" "6" "7" "8" "9"
09:15:29midki believe that's all
09:15:55midkwhich is actually quite a few..
09:16:31LinusNwhy not just use normal text?
09:16:58midkthat's the thing -sysfixed is quite small
09:17:50LinusNyou could use the user-selected font
09:17:57LinusNthen the user gets to decide
09:19:02midkat some points some wouldn't fit on the lcd
09:24:10LinusNi know, just a suggestion
09:24:43LinusNthat's why the recording screen uses the internal font
09:24:54LinusNtoo damn hard to adapt to the user font
09:25:22midkthat's why i'm sort of stuck,
09:25:35midknot only is that a lot of bitmaps to do but it takes up a lot of space
09:25:55LinusNlose the logos then
09:26:20midkyeah, i probably will
09:26:25midkdid you see my "time's up" logo?
09:26:27midker, bitmap
09:26:29LinusNat least all but one
09:26:38midkyeah, the used one
09:26:47midkand the logo selection code
09:26:55LinusNletting the user select a startup logo is so useless
09:27:31midki'm attached.
09:27:45midkit's a credit roll logo too
09:27:50midkand you see it when you exit.
09:28:06LinusNyes, but how important is it really?
09:28:11midknot at all
09:28:35LinusNi like your setting menus
09:28:38midki *will* remove it
09:28:46midkthank you
09:29:59LinusNsometimes the checkbox is confusing when it's a multiple-choice setting, but ontherwise, they're very neat
09:30:27LinusNwhich reminds me, we should export the menu code to the plugins
09:30:40midki asked for that LONG time ago
09:30:45midkfor the beginning of the clock
09:30:51[IDC]DragonLinusN: wait a little with that
09:30:55midkthat was when it was functional at 800 bytes, mind you.
09:31:11LinusN[IDC]Dragon: ?
09:31:32[IDC]DragonI'm massaging the structures
09:31:37LinusNfor the lang id fixes?
09:32:03LinusNwhat's your approach?
09:32:35[IDC]Dragonhmm, I think I'd go for that "virtual pointer" in case it's an ID
09:32:50[IDC]Dragoncan be done withoun any nasty cast
09:34:16LinusNi'd like to review it before you commit it
09:34:27[IDC]DragonI can check if it's in the "virtual" range, then say id = ptr - virt_base
09:35:13[IDC]Dragonvirt_base can be set to a dummy array for the sim, just to have a safe range
09:35:37[IDC]Dragon(but that's details)
09:36:42[IDC]Dragonlike I said yesterday, having those tables cost saves >6KB
09:36:55[IDC]Dragonbut you weren't terribly impressed

09:52:01LinusN[IDC]Dragon: i was just joking
09:52:28LinusNif we save lots of code space, i'm for it
09:52:33[IDC]Dragon6 KB is what the settings code saved, too
09:52:40LinusNand i consider 6k to be lots
09:52:48[IDC]Dragonnot exactly lots, but something
09:53:34LinusNregarding the random generator, i read bc:s docs a week ago, and also reacted on the 7kb claim, but i didn't care
09:53:54LinusNstill, i don't see a point of overkilling the randomness
09:54:17[IDC]Dragonthe random generator needs quite some RAM
09:54:20LinusNif bc:s generator is good enough, we could toss the mersenne twister
09:54:26[IDC]Dragoncode space is OK
09:54:46[IDC]DragonI thought there is some property of it which we need?
09:55:10LinusNin the dawn of rockbox, we had a lengthy discussion about randomness
09:55:23LinusNand the then-current generator sucked
09:56:06LinusNso Hadaka (i believe) investigated a little, and found the twister
09:56:42LinusNwe could probably easily measure the distribution of both generators and decide which to use
09:57:46LinusNbc:s is probably a lot faster

10:27:26lImbushi all
10:27:36[IDC]Dragonhi there
10:28:16lImbusi read in Q13 of the battery faq there is a switch in the dc-in-socket for any recorder ?
10:28:27lImbusdefinitely can't confirm that for my v1
10:28:29LinusNlImbus: switch?
10:28:38[IDC]DragonI doubt a switch
10:28:41lImbuslImbus, A13: There is a switch in the DC IN jack of the Jukebox - when a charger (or whatever) is plugged in, the unit is powered on, even if the charger is not plugged in a mains outlet.
10:28:49lImbusargl. LinusN that was :-/
10:29:34LinusNwell, it's not a physical switch
10:29:54lImbusit says "even if the charger is not plugged in a mains outlet"
10:30:02lImbuswhich is definitely wrong
10:30:22[IDC]DragonI can't plug mine any more :-(
10:30:33LinusN[IDC]Dragon: so damaged?
10:31:06[IDC]Dragonbut I'll get a replacement jack, don't worry too much
10:31:10lImbusIf I power on the charger (without connected unit) for 3 seconds, it has enough power in coil to start the archos ONCE.
10:31:31lImbusdoes everybody agree now ? I would edit the twiki then
10:32:29[IDC]DragonLinusN: do you happen to have D. E. Knuth, The Art of Computer Programming?
10:33:22[IDC]DragonI don't, it says, there is a chapter about random generator algorithms
10:33:30lImbus[IDC]Dragon: he's already editing twiki
10:33:59LinusN[IDC]Dragon: i don't
10:34:11LinusNlImbus: i have changed it now, and released the lock
10:34:43LinusNthanks for the heads up
10:35:13lImbusthanks for correcting ;-)
10:36:57lImbus[IDC]Dragon: maybe I got the eBook at work
10:47:09[IDC]Dragon"The recent invention of the Mersenne twister algorithm, by Makoto Matsumoto and Takuji Nishimura in 1997, avoids most of these problems. It has a colossal period of 219937-1 iterations, is proven to be equidistributed in 623 dimensions (for 32-bit values), and runs faster than all but the least statistically desirable generators. It is now becoming increasingly accepted as the random number generator of choice for all statistical simulations and
10:47:55[IDC]DragonSo, we have a real high-end randomness for our playlists
10:48:30lImbusit's implemented within boost, if I remember correctly. but I have experienced bewing slow
10:49:01[IDC]Dragonthe layout got lost, it's period of 2^(19937-1)
10:49:21zeyou sure in'ts not (2^19937)-1?
10:49:33[IDC]Dragonah, yes
10:49:38lImbusit's excellent for cryptography, but overkill for playlists
10:49:44LinusNi agree
10:50:23[IDC]DragonNo, we could do better: ;-)
10:50:28[IDC]Dragon"However, it is possible to efficiently analyze the output of the Mersenne Twister and recognize the numbers as being non-random (see the Berlekamp-Massey algorithm or an extension from it, like the Reed-Sloane algorithm). A PRNG that appears to avoid this problem is called a cryptographically secure PRNG (CSPRNG). "
10:50:46lImbusafter the library I use at work changed to mersenne, I wrote my own rand() because it was so slow.
10:51:01LinusNand since we use a simple modulo for the range, we skew the distribution anyway
10:52:35[IDC]Dragonlet's just use BC's generator, I doubt anybody would have reasons to complain
10:53:32LinusNagreed, i'll just check with björn first, he's been reluctant to replace the twister earlier
10:54:22[IDC]Dragonbut it doesn't gain us the ~4KB missing to make an FM ROMbox
10:54:31[IDC]Dragonany other ideas?
10:54:48LinusNyes, the bookmarking code can be trimmed some
10:56:11LinusNwe can ditch some debugging code
10:56:29[IDC]Dragonah yes, there's some legacy
10:58:17[IDC]Dragonmaybe some of it can be moved to a plugin
10:58:17LinusNi just removed the sound debugging screen
10:58:46LinusNgood idea, but i don't want to clutter the api
10:59:38[IDC]Dragonno, only the ones which can live on their own
11:00:30LinusNdbg_mas_info() can be moved
11:01:36LinusNor we can just kill it, i haven't had use for it in ages
11:03:28LinusNbut that won't help the fm, since it's Player-only
11:04:02*midk suggests removing fm functionality
11:04:14[IDC]Dragonbut cleanup is always good
11:04:34midki was just going to say, this seems to have initiated a code cleanup!
11:05:09LinusNstill, we'd have to clean up a lot to have some kind of a margin for rombox
11:05:56LinusNwe can trim 6k, but future enhancements will probably grow over the limit in no time
11:06:20lImbuswhat about oursourcing big const data to files to be read from harddisk ?
11:07:05lImbusI suppose we still can use ram in rombox, eh ?
11:07:45LinusNlImbus: i don't like it, too much work for too little gain imho
11:08:12[IDC]Dragonand a more complicated installation
11:08:47lImbusok, I thought we had big data blobs. if it's code that kill's it, it's not a solution anyways
11:08:54[IDC]Dragonwe don't have much const data anyway
11:09:12LinusNexcept for the strings and fonts, but we must have them in rom anyway
11:09:23[IDC]Dragonthe big ones are the font, the strings, start and USB logo
11:09:39lImbusid3-tag-genres ?
11:10:01[IDC]Dragonyes, but this is not much
11:10:21LinusNwe can always ditch the start logo for rombox builds
11:10:38[IDC]Dragonor compress it ;-)
11:10:46LinusNhow big is it?
11:11:04lImbuscould be vetorized :-)
11:11:13lImbusvectorized that is
11:11:23[IDC]Dragonmaybe 700 bytes or so
11:11:35LinusNnot worth it then
11:13:49[IDC]Dragonthe ucl unpack code is about that size, too
11:29:03[IDC]Dragonas a drastic way, FM users could flash their box into a V2
11:29:51[IDC]Dragondiscarding the radio for the Archos image, but having it back in Rockbox
11:30:10LinusNinteresting idea
11:30:29[IDC]Dragonthis works, I have tried it
11:30:41[IDC]Dragon(not with ROMbox, though)
11:31:00[IDC]Dragonbut when I verified V2 flashing

16:59:42tpelliottWorked fine.
17:01:36tpelliottIf I get the prompt "File to patch:" That means it couldn't find the file I specified on the command kine?

17:05:03tpelliottI'm trying another patch.

17:05:31LinusNwhich patch?

17:10:16tpelliottI tried the play button patch before. I had a couple of problems with it. It worked ok but wouldn't queue a folder. Also it would queue all the tracks in a playlist instead of just playing it.

17:16:48tpelliottWhat's -p0 in the patch command?
17:17:32LinusNthe -pX switch tells you to remove X levels in the search path in the patch file
17:18:05LinusNhowever, if the path in the patch file is relative, you still need the -p command, with 0 as an argument

22:44:10LinusNof course you can
22:44:13Hydronicyeah i dont either

22:44:48LinusNsame thing here
22:44:57LinusNit's a complete installation package
22:45:18Hydronicit said please look at the documentation for the do-it-yourselfers and i thought that meant the people who were writing their own code
22:45:18LinusNwe even have a Windows installer executable

22:51:27LinusNvery shock sensitive, and is allergic to ATA driver optimizations
22:51:56lImbushhmm. so your build does not optimize, so it recovers ?
22:53:40lImbusI suppose those driver optimizations are where the specs are a small bit unclear about implementation.
22:54:24LinusNnot really
22:54:36LinusNthe specs are clear
