00:00:24kaboofathanks linus
00:00:26kaboofayou rock my wold.
00:00:30kaboofaworld too.
00:00:37 Nick kaboofa is now known as boofa^A^D (
00:01:35LinusNboofa^A^D: lots of info here:
00:02:03LinusNseems the keyboard uses the rs232 port
00:02:12[IDC]DragonLinusN: is there a reason why the strings in lang.h are unsigned char?
00:02:47LinusNbecause they are 8-bit and not 7-bit?
00:03:32[IDC]Dragonthis houdn't matter
00:03:56[IDC]Dragonsizeof(char) is 1 and not 0.875
00:05:20[IDC]Dragonjust kidding, they also occupy a byte
00:05:39LinusNi just don't see what it has to do with the sign
00:05:50[IDC]DragonI'm stumbling over an inconsitancy, the menu strings are unsigned char, versus the option strings are char
00:08:14[IDC]Dragonmy new pointer resolving code is picky about this
00:08:31[IDC]Dragonchanged the options to unsigned now, too
00:08:43LinusNprobably the best solution
00:09:04***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
00:09:04[IDC]DragonIMHO char makes more sense, but would require to change genlang
00:10:19[IDC]Dragoncompiles without warnings now, my 6 KB saver is done
00:11:12LinusNi think unsigned char makes more sense, since the char codes are unsigned
00:11:20[IDC]DragonI'll email you the "tricky" part for review
00:12:00[IDC]Dragonbut it makes no sense to load you with all the changes, most are the menu+option initializers
00:12:11LinusNsend me one example
00:12:40*LinusN is fixing the gcc 3.4 quirks
00:12:55[IDC]Dragonoh, great
00:13:23[IDC]Dragonany forecast if 3.4 optimizes better?
00:14:25LinusNmy guess is that it does, but i haven't looked into that yet
00:15:06LinusN3.4.1 is out
00:15:20LinusNwith one optimizer bugfix for sh1
00:15:21[IDC]Dragonsince when?
00:15:24LinusNjuly 1
00:15:46[IDC]Dragonthey actually work on sh? wonderful!
00:16:03LinusNpartly because of rockbox
00:25:15 Join tpelliott [0] (
00:26:00[IDC]DragonLinusN: email is on the way
00:27:14LinusNgot it
00:30:16LinusNlooks ok to me, can i see menu.c too?
00:31:05*[IDC]Dragon puts email together
00:32:26[IDC]Dragonany more?
00:33:57LinusNnot for now
00:34:04[IDC]Dragonon the way
00:34:49[IDC]Dragonit has only very few differences, at the places where the string is referenced
00:35:00LinusNthat's what i wanted to see
00:35:55LinusNlooks ok
00:36:11LinusNi'm not too fond of it, but i see no better solution
00:36:47[IDC]Dragonwe could give the struct an extra member
00:37:07LinusNthis way is more general
00:41:03[IDC]Dragonyou mean, defining more "virtual regions" if necessary?
00:41:25LinusNthat, and a virtual pointer can be passed anywhere
00:41:51LinusNwe can extend any function to accept a virtual pointer
00:42:17[IDC]Dragonhmm, now I get scared
00:42:53LinusNor ami missing something?
00:43:21[IDC]Dragonno, but it makes the code hard to understand
00:43:27LinusNof course
00:44:17LinusNi mean, if we invent another gui object, like a popup menu or whatever, we can use virtual pointers without adding more macros
00:44:25LinusNit's a general concept
00:44:41LinusNif we extend the struct with a flag, all structs must look the same
00:45:49[IDC]DragonI woudn't overdwaw the concept, it reqquires runtime checks whereever you resolve the pointer
00:46:10LinusNof course, but you know what i mean
00:46:31[IDC]Dragonready for a moster-commit?
00:46:50LinusNhit me
00:47:02[IDC]Dragonjust doing some touchup
00:47:14LinusNyou sound like midk :-)
00:47:23tpelliottWhat are you guys adding?
00:47:28[IDC]Dragonnothing fancy
00:47:37LinusNsaving some code memory
00:58:07 Part tpelliott
01:02:53[IDC]Dragonok, it's on the way.
01:03:02*LinusN ducks
01:03:34[IDC]DragonI just missed the bleeding edge build time, am too tired to wait for the next
01:04:11 Join Salokyn [0] (
01:06:55SalokynDo you know if the [ 989420 ] Safe poweroff patch Linus was working for will be implemeted to Rockbox soon ? It semms to be bugfree now.
01:10:44SalokynHi there !
01:13:55LinusNhi Salokyn
01:15:04LinusN[IDC]Dragon: did amiconn use gcc 3.4 to build rombox?
01:15:15[IDC]Dragonno, 3.3.1
01:15:58[IDC]Dragongoodnight folks!
01:16:00LinusNso i am the first to build with 3.4?
01:16:09LinusN[IDC]Dragon: nite
01:16:16[IDC]DragonI think hardeeps tried
01:17:11[IDC]DragonMagnus Holmgren it was
01:17:54LinusNsection overlap
01:18:12[IDC]Dragonhuh? how can?
01:18:36LinusNsection .iram [000000000902cdac -> 000000000902db13] overlaps section .stack [000000000902cdac -> 000000000902edab]
01:18:51[IDC]Dragonthis was on purpose
01:18:54LinusNit doesn't like my iram copy hack
01:19:06[IDC]Dragonto re-use the memory once the iram is copied
01:19:30[IDC]Dragonah, yours
01:19:40LinusNmust probably add some overlay flag or something
01:19:50[IDC]Dragonforce it, yes
01:20:05 Quit [IDC]Dragon ()
01:27:26 Join dstar5 [0] (
01:32:55SalokynSo Linus you have anidea of when the [ 989420 ] Safe poweroff patch will be implemented ?
01:33:37LinusNwell, i would surely like some more feedback
01:33:40Salokyn(scuse me my spce bar doesn't work very well)
01:34:03LinusNi mean, is it a Good Thing, or will it annoy people
01:34:22Salokynevec without your last modifications i found it excellent
01:37:35Salokyni'm testing it right now
01:37:35Salokyni try to turn it off while the charger is present
01:38:26lImbusSalokyn: lo
01:38:28Salokynit should not even show the message in that case ?
01:39:00LinusNi think not
01:39:54Salokynbecause it shows it, and the "Shutdown" message when i press OFF again, and get back to the browser
01:40:11 Quit mecraw___ ("Trillian (")
01:40:30LinusNi guess it shouldn't do anything...
01:41:46Salokynit's not the case
01:42:31dstar5LinusN: i will have a new reorder in a few days :)
01:42:35Salokyni have the 040721 version, you didn't update it since that ?
01:44:13LinusNdstar5: nice. ebay?
01:45:01LinusNSalokyn: no updates since then
01:45:50dstar5LinusN: yep
01:49:04SalokynLinusN: Ok, so on my recorder, whenplugged, it has the same bahaviour as unplugged (show the "Push OFF to shut off" and "Shutting down..." messages) except it get back to browser when disk stopped.
01:49:19LinusNnot nice
01:50:09Salokynexcept that there's no problem :-)
01:50:23Salokynfor the recorder V1
01:53:45SalokynI change the subject: I was thinking for ROMbox that can't work on V2 and FM recorders. Can't the Archos firmware be more compressed than now ?
01:54:19Salokynto let more space for rockbox
01:54:30dstar5i think ucl compress is at highest already
01:55:29LinusNyes it is
01:55:43dstar5also i was wondering.. why are we using the extension ucl? that is kinda boring.. how about a rockbox extension?
01:56:06LinusNwell, it is a ucl file, so why not call it ucl?
01:56:30LinusNbut i agree, .flash may be more descriptive
01:56:33dstar5becaues it has not tie to rockbox
01:56:54LinusNhave you tried my new sort plugin yet?
01:56:55SalokynSo is it really usefull to have Archos firmware into flash ? Is it possible to keep the F1 start to ROLO an archos firmware on the disk ?
01:57:25Salokynno, not yet
01:57:28dstar5i think it is good to keep it in flash..
01:57:37LinusNSalokyn: i believe most people would feel safer if the original firmware is onboard
01:57:49LinusNeven i do :-)
01:57:50dstar5a few people have had problems and F! saved there archos
01:57:57dstar5or atleast a mod job..
01:58:31dstar5is the archos firware in flash compressed?
01:59:17dstar5maybe we should play with other compression...
01:59:30dstar5bzip or LZMA...
02:00:34Salokynwhy is it better to keep it on flash while it can be loaded from the disk
02:01:07LinusNthe general idea is that we trust the original firmware to work
02:01:13dstar5what if the fat table gets corrupt, adn the file can not be loaded...
02:01:30Salokyn(directly with the F1 start I mean, without loading rockbox first)
02:02:06dstar5what about the boot loader.. can be it be made smaller?
02:03:19Salokynwe just have to keep the archos image in a safe place on the disk
02:03:41Salokynthat will be loaded by the boot loader
02:03:50dstar5sector 63 may work...
02:03:53LinusNSalokyn: and if the disk crashes?
02:04:00dstar5how big is a sector?
02:04:04LinusN512 bytes
02:04:07dstar5i never remember those things lol
02:05:01Salokynthat would be very bad luck if disk crashand rockbox doesn't work
02:05:29LinusNyes, and then it's nice to have the original firmware in the flash
02:06:51dstar5how much more room is needed to have the rockbox running in rom to work on fm/v2?
02:07:08LinusNa few kbytes
02:08:42Salokynor replace in flash the archos firmware by a small and safe rockbox we're sure it will work and that will not change inthe time
02:09:08***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
02:09:22dstar5not a bad idea...
02:09:24Salokyna lite safe version
02:09:25LinusNthat's an option
02:09:33LinusNwe ave discussed that
02:09:43dstar5that does nothing but usb maybe???
02:10:02Salokynin fact we just need USB?
02:10:04*dstar5 likes that idea very much
02:10:12LinusNit must be able to ROLO
02:11:03dstar5sounds really nice, should one use a few kbytes, and leaves more room for rockbox features :)
02:11:58*dstar5 want sto cut dowbn rockbox
02:12:04dstar5sounds like much fun
02:14:40Salokynbecause, at this time we miss some kB, but maybe later, rockbox will be bigger
02:18:01Salokynright, i leave you guys, good night
02:18:36 Part Salokyn
02:18:45dstar5cvs update is doing nothing :(
02:19:39LinusNdstar5: and?
02:20:41dstar5it is sitting there...
02:20:50dstar5i am in rockbox-devel
02:20:54lImbusit's working fine with me
02:20:58dstar5di cvs update -dP
02:21:05LinusNworks for me
02:21:12*dstar5 does ^C
02:21:48dstar5tried again.. still doing nothing
02:21:59dstar5i restart cygwin
02:22:05LinusNare you really using the rockbox cvs server?
02:22:12LinusNand not sourceforge
02:23:04dstar5it is source from last updated ~5 days ago
02:23:33LinusNprobably a router problem
02:23:47LinusNcan you access
02:24:10dstar5i have not router
02:24:29dstar5i have a friewall.. but cvs has never had a problems with it

13:21:47[IDC]Dragonhi LinusN!
13:22:04LinusNworking on the gcc changes
13:22:20[IDC]Dragonyou seem very active these days, is your family on vacation and left you behind?
13:22:27LinusNgood guess
13:22:47[IDC]Dragonhow's gcc?
13:22:57LinusNi'm running rockbox as we speak
13:23:02LinusNin the gdb debugger
13:23:21[IDC]Dragonoh, sounds bad
13:23:29LinusNrockbox is 3k smaller with 3.4 compared to 3.0.4
13:23:33[IDC]Dragon(that you need gdb)
13:23:40LinusNi didn't need it, just tested
13:24:24LinusNbad news is that my iram-in-stack trick exploited a now-fixed bug in ld :-(
13:24:29[IDC]Dragoncompared to 3.0.4, that's Yogo vs. Porsche
13:24:58[IDC]Dragonwhat did you do about it?
13:25:06LinusNi did it the official way
13:25:14LinusNand that really sucks
13:25:25[IDC]Dragoncan we overlay?
13:25:32LinusNnot that i lose some RAM, but the way it's supposed to be done
13:25:55LinusNwe could overlay, but the overlay mechanism works in the same sucky way
13:26:18[IDC]Dragondoes the official way work with the old gcc, backwards compatible?
13:26:33[IDC]Dragonthen what's so bad about it?
13:26:50LinusNthe iram copy can't be reused
13:26:59LinusNthe *space* cant' be reused
13:27:19[IDC]Dragonthen we do need extra RAM
13:27:49LinusNwell, i can still reuse it, but in a slightly dirtier way
13:28:17LinusNi can reduce the stack section size and let it overflow into the iram copy
13:28:27[IDC]Dragoni think it's a common pattern for embedded to toss away a RO region which is not used any more after init, and recycle the space
13:28:56LinusNif it is run from RAM, yes
13:29:00[IDC]Dragonah, I see
13:29:24LinusNstill, i think the microtech way was nicer
13:29:40LinusNletting the compiler generate a duplicate section
13:30:39LinusNold software company
13:32:29[IDC]Dragoncan I send you my Rombox .lds file?
13:32:36LinusNplease do

13:36:00LinusNgot it
13:36:39[IDC]Dragonthe vextors are in RAM, on purpose. So I can still "bend" them in my dirty plugin.
13:37:27LinusNmaybe we should use a "cleaner" method for that?

16:23:08Thresholdcan anyone tell me how to convert flash video files ? I have a bunch of videos from and would like to convert them to use on my rockbox...thanks
16:23:37LinusNcan you convert flash files to AVI?
16:25:12Thresholdlookin on the web now
16:25:27LinusNflash files are not really movies, iirc
16:25:50LinusNthey are scripts
16:27:25dwihnoIf you have the "source" file, you can export to avi using the windows standard stuff
16:27:35dwihnousing compression supported by the VFW codecs
16:27:55LinusNyou obviously know more than i do
16:28:32Thresholdk these are all exe files
16:29:29LinusNthen i think you're out of luck
16:30:42dwihnoI don't know if there's a way to convert flash exe's to swf again... then it would be so much simpler getting the source file.
16:31:36Thresholdya found a converter
16:31:54dwihnoyou did?
16:31:59dwihnodoes it work?

17:02:31LinusNwhat is that ... thing?
17:02:34zeekoethe black thing is the MAX4467, microphone preamp
17:02:48zeekoethe blue bubbles are 100n capacitors
17:03:15dwihnoI should have guessed that :)

17:04:00*LinusN is thinking of an internal mod
17:04:33LinusNno good connector to use
17:05:17zeekoesmd is no good
17:05:30LinusNbtw, is it picky about the voltage level?
17:05:31zeekoenot if you use the soldering iron i use
17:05:35zeekoenope, not at all
17:05:40zeekoe2.4-6 volts
17:06:01LinusNgood, cause the batteries will give you 4.6-5.7 something
17:06:14zeekoei hope this thing'll work, otherwise i need the other max4467 which is SOT23, which means it fits about 4 times in this chip
17:06:28zeekoeyep, i already figured
17:06:49zeekoedwihno: capacitor bang?
17:08:03dwihnozeekoe: lots of voltage -> capacitor BANG! :D

17:14:18zeekoewould it be possible to set the digital out to +5V? :)
17:15:48LinusNit sure would be nice to not have to open it for the preamp voltage
17:15:56zeekoecan i use the signal anyway, and then make it DC with some capacitor?
17:16:14zeekoeor is it too weak?
17:16:23LinusNzeekoe: the S/PDIF output is only working when you play sound
17:16:38LinusNnot when you are recording
17:17:50zeekoeif it isnt used when recording, it can be +5V
17:18:04zeekoebut that's not possible i guess...
17:18:45LinusNit's more like 3V or even less
17:18:50LinusNand very weak
17:19:41zeekoeokay, then there's nothing else left than taping some wires to the batteries
17:20:49LinusNsolder, you mean...?
17:20:50zeekoethe DC in won't happen to be a bidirectional port, would it? ;-)
17:22:55LinusNhow much current do you need?

17:24:18zeekoeat least, that's what elektor tells me
17:24:51LinusNwill there be any difference when the mic is picking up sound?
17:24:52zeekoemaybe i can make it work on bodyheat :P
17:25:16zeekoeLinusN: don't know... it just says 200 kHz bandwith; current usage 20 uA
17:25:43LinusNthe remote control input has a weak pullup resistor
17:25:49LinusNon some jukeboxes
17:26:04zeekoebut then i need a 4-input connector
17:26:39zeekoei have to go all the way to groningen, that's 20 km from here, and then buy the thing, and return home
17:26:44zeekoei want it now :)
17:26:49zeekoebut it is a good option
17:26:59LinusNso get it from the batteries for now
17:27:27zeekoeand then get a 4 input connector
17:27:53zeekoehere's the circuit diagram btw:
17:28:53zeekoemax 60 uA it says
17:29:05LinusNwhat kind of mic does it want?
17:30:23zeekoei think a mic which needs power supply thingy
17:30:25LinusNgotta go for a few minutes, cu later
17:30:28zeekoeelectret are they called?

19:26:18LinusNthat sometimes helps
19:26:22BC|codingit is worth it even if it is only used twice
19:26:45LinusNthe compiler should really optimize that

19:34:13zeekoebut the recording files are corrupted!
19:34:31zeekoeand it seems to be draining the batteries quite a bit
19:35:30LinusNdoes "normal" recordings work without corruption?
19:35:40zeekoenope, just thought about that too and tested it
19:35:47zeekoemaybe its rombox
19:36:00LinusNmy guess is that you have a serious hum, that is overflowing the mpeg encoder
19:36:04zeekoeor it's the almost empty batts
19:36:42zeekoethe 50 Hz thingy makes the mpeg encoder go wild?

20:30:08LinusNBC|coding: i have investigated your code a little
20:30:33BC|codinganything interesting?
20:30:38LinusNwhy this fetish for small data types?
20:31:32BC|codingused to an environment where it makes a difference, but as it rarely makes a difference to rockbox code, I just stayed with it
20:31:44LinusNit does make a difference
20:32:25LinusNall registers are 32-bit, so it has to extend the byte/word data to 32 bits
20:32:41LinusNlots and lost of ext instructions
20:32:42BC|codingthe compiler tends to optimise that well
20:33:04BC|codingi replaced LOADS of my UI16's with int's and the code remained identical in size
20:33:09LinusNalso, there are no indexed instructions for non32-bit data
20:33:28LinusNthat's why the indexing is so slow
20:33:44LinusNit has to recalculate the pointer each time, instead if indexing
20:33:56BC|codingspeed is no problem for me - i keep hitting the 32k plugin limit
20:34:14LinusNbecause it can't use the mov.l instruction with the indexed addressing mode
20:34:37LinusNPileNew got a lot smaller when i used int's
20:34:57BC|codinghmmm - I shall investigate further then :)
20:35:12BC|codingyou mean ints in the struct??
20:35:19LinusNthe general rule is to use the natural data type of the processor
20:35:41BC|codingomg no - i dont have the ram for that!!!
20:35:46BC|codingI wish I did
20:36:24BC|codingblackjack supports 8 decks of cards - the cost would be immense
20:36:55BC|coding#bool-is-broken costs me about 1K of plugin space per deck
20:37:08LinusNthen remove it
20:37:40BC|codingi will - and if it works I will leave it that way, and if it's still broke I will return it back again
20:37:57LinusNi wonder about this comment:
20:38:06LinusNRockbox cannot handle bools if they are inside a struct in a lib
20:38:08BC|codingalthough that example, is only relevant with the sim anyway
20:38:17LinusNwhat does rockbox have to do with that?
20:39:03BC|codingapparently it was caused by a makefile problem
20:39:09LinusNnow i get it
20:39:19LinusNthat is also a sim issue
20:39:30LinusNsorry, my brain is idle today
20:39:37BC|codings'cool ;)
20:40:20LinusNhow many piles do you support?
20:40:46BC|codingklondike uses 3+4+7
20:41:01BC|codingoh right, max possible
20:41:04LinusNyou could use a byte for that instead of word
20:41:05BC|codingyeah, 64K
20:41:35BC|codingUI8 would likely have been enough - but I'm not being bitten by the preminition again
20:42:10LinusNi don't get it
20:42:39BC|codingwhat? my choice to limit the user to 64K piles?
20:42:52LinusN"bitten by..."
20:43:20BC|codingnudge klondike and watch what happens when you move up a pile - the active card is "nudged" out of line so uyou can see it
20:43:39BC|codingif I limit the user to 255 piles, you can bet some weirdo will want 300
20:43:42LinusNso nudge can have many values?

20:58:07LinusNmaybe the >>8 instruction has problems with signed/unsigned?
20:58:09BC|codingthnks for making me look at the card() struct again are right, there is a good chunk of optimisation I can do there :)
20:58:35BC|codinghmm, could be
20:59:21LinusNone thing regarding struct packing:
20:59:27BC|codingI noticed it chatting with ami one night, and both he and dragon were surprised to find out about it - so I can only presume that our asm-coders have never seen it in a dump before??
20:59:50LinusNit's a good idea to group the types of the same size
21:00:00LinusNso the packing can be efficient
21:00:09LinusNsort the members by size
21:00:27LinusNotherwise the compiler is forced to pad

21:15:44BC|codingnice code though - good documentation too :) I say, not one to do things by half ;)
21:17:52LinusNwell, it doesn't do merge sort
21:18:40BC|codingthere's always _something_ extra you can add :)
21:19:20BC|codingI've gotta see if I can get my (faked) stereo mixing demo going at some point
21:19:30BC|codingwant to add that to the starfield demo
21:19:57LinusNwhat is that?

23:53:50Smoothdamn these mach 3 razors
23:54:09BC|codingyeah, that was a great bit of marketting wasn't it?
23:54:25Smooththe blades don't last very long
23:54:31Smooththe blue gelstrip wears out fast
23:54:43LinusNthat's the whole point
23:54:48Smooth why?
23:54:53BC|codingthey're for people who don't know how to shave and have too much money
23:55:02LinusNthey are more expensive, and they don't last long
23:55:14Smoothi'll get a cutthroat instead
23:55:44BC|codingI've found the best compromise is cheap "bic" razors, one will last me about 3-4 weeks
23:56:09Smooththey are deadly
23:56:18BC|codingmy point precisely
23:56:21LinusNif you shave once every 4 weeks, that is
23:56:25BC|codingfor people who don't know how to shave
23:56:43BC|codingyou can shave with a decent knife if you know how
23:56:52Smoothi'll get a Quattro then
23:56:55Smoothhas 4 blades in it
23:57:06Smoothbehind this safety cage
23:57:15BC|codingkeewwwlll, four blades MUST be better
23:57:20LinusNreminds me of the hilarious Saturday Night Live parody
23:57:29LinusNwith like 30 blades
23:57:32Pano-Manix6a good katana by Hatori Enzo ?
23:57:57BC|codingnot sure i'd like to try and shave with a thousand fold katana
23:58:05Smoothive heard that gillette are working on this new razor
23:58:21Smooththe blades are made of hardened sugar, so they dissolve as they wear out
23:58:52BC|codingthere is a great razor that shaves with ultrasonics, was invented as part of a competition, ?"never"? wears out
