03:50:51dstar5amiconn: how much memory are you saving with the new changes?
03:52:51amiconndstar5: The new changes don't save any memory actually, they are intended to make using const easier in the future
03:54:36dstar5i am now working on a new game, checkers
03:56:40dstar5the logic to the game should be quite simple... i just don't know how to do the AI really yet
03:57:18amiconnUnfortunately I got stuck with tracking down a recording problem (not that related to rombox, but a general one that occurs on my box)
03:58:06amiconn...and Linus isn't aroud (who could certainly help), so I'm doing other thing I wanted to complete for quite some time
03:58:39dstar5what is it?
04:07:17amiconnAfter some time of recording (observed anything between 3..90 minutes so far) the recording becomes completely garbled - no correct mp3 frame headers past that file position
04:08:19amiconnThis happens independently whether rockbox is running from rom or ram, I use the new or old transfer routines, optimized or unoptimized ata, with or without mas reset...
04:12:58amiconnAnyway, I should really get some sleep *now*

09:18:30dwihnoi want a bluetooth keyboard. are they really really expensive?
09:18:42Zagorno idea
09:18:50*Bagder doesn't care much for bluetooth
09:19:30midkdwihno, i recall an MS set of kbd and mouse for ~$110
09:19:41midkthere's a logitech set too.. probably about the same price
09:19:43midkor a bit less
09:21:25dwihnoi want a foldable :)
09:21:38midkhm, that'll cost you :]
09:21:42dwihnoi love bt!
09:22:13Zagorthere are foldables for palm. and since several palms use bluetooth maybe the keyboard does too.
09:22:34dwihnoah. good idea
09:23:06Zagorthey are very small though. not for everyday use.

09:54:18lImbusHi Bagder, I read about your stolen baby. Would a not-flasheable unit help you ?
09:54:43Bagderyou have a spare one?
09:55:37lImbusI bought one for a friend of mine who is not getting happy with that. He still looks for an iPod.
09:56:30lImbusHe's now trying to get a guarantee replacement by pretending the charging of batteries does not work properly and hopes the replacement device is flasheable.
09:57:34lImbus(I told him flashed devices are better). Hes having problems with the fact he has FIRST to switch on his device, wait until bootstrap is done, THEN plug in the charger and so on.

12:50:39Straththere is still a signature chunk in the aos RIFF format which we havn't decoded
12:51:44Strathbut we have got the emu displaying the firmware's debug strings as it "boots"
12:52:04Zagorare you aiming to run linux or something homegrown (as rockbox)?
12:52:04Strathand then "upgrades"
12:54:27Strathwe'll have to start home grown... becase the only port of gcc to CalmRISC (ie TCC730) is held at high priced and only open to paying customers
12:55:09ZagorGNU gcc? does FSF know?
12:55:10Strath(ala ecos)
12:55:44Strathi don't think it's a violation, because the code is released to those it's being distributed to
12:56:03Bagderand why don't they reditribute it?
12:56:21Strathcause they had to pay an arm&lag for it?
12:56:36Bagderit doesn't make sense
12:56:40Bagderto me
12:56:41Strathi know....
12:57:01Strathlet me point you to the site.... see if you can figure it out

12:57:31Zagorit could be like the sveasoft debacle: their support contract expires if they redistribute the software...

12:59:14Zagorvery nasty practice imho, but apparently fsf has greenlighted it
12:59:40Bagdernasty is the word
12:59:42Strathsucks for us
13:00:03Strathgrr... i lost track of the site
13:00:05Zagorsucks for everyone except he who ripped off gcc and now sells it
13:00:11Strathhave to check my logs
13:00:38Strathit was done in coopperation with redhat and cygnus
13:02:01Zagoryeah well they didn't write gcc either...
13:02:55StrathGNUPro is Red Hat's commercial software development suite of tools
13:06:23Zagorbut is the calmrisc port done by redhat?
13:07:06Straththere is a partnership referenced in a redhat press release
13:07:16Strath(with samsung)
13:09:35Zagor"Samsung Chooses Red Hat to Create Open Source Development Tools for Next-Generation Low Power Chip" ya right.
13:09:43 Nick uski is now known as uski`lunch (
13:10:24Zagor"Under the GPL license, Samsung will be able to provide the GNUpro development tools to CalmRISC CPU customers free of charge"
13:10:44Zagorso did they just change their mind or what?
13:10:44StrathHA, double HA HA
13:11:06Strathi've spent many many hours searching
13:11:14Strathall dead ends
13:11:25Strathor running in circles
13:11:41Zagortried contacting redhat? preferrably a techie.
13:12:27Strathi don't have a in
13:12:58Strathand would rather not do a cold contact
13:14:27Strathit looks like, maybe, these are the guys that hold the original copywrite on g++
13:14:43Zagorso how much is gnupro? maybe we should buy it and submit it for inclusion in gcc...
13:15:02Zagorrichard stallman wrote gcc. he isn't easily persuaded...
13:15:11Strathgcc, yes
13:15:20Strathg++, no so sure
13:15:44Bagderg++ is part of the gcc suite, surely it all is (c) by FSF?
13:15:59StrathSecond, GNU C++ was falling behind. I wrote GNU C++ in the fall of 1987, making it the first native-code C++ compiler in the world. C++ was a much more complex language than C, and it was still evolving when we started Cygnus. In 1990, several new, even more complex features became ``standard,'' and with all the distractions of Cygnus, I had no time to keep GNU C++ current
13:16:10Strath(sorry for the large paste)
13:16:55Zagorwell g++ isn't where the calmrisc support is anyway so it doesn't really matter
13:17:23Strathok... just trying to sort this mess out
13:17:33Zagorthis must have been dealt with before, but i can't find much about it on google
13:17:46Strathnoticed that huh?
13:18:57Zagorlets go to #gnu and ask
13:19:07Strathhrm... 70 matches for: gnupro gpl violation

13:27:26Zagorthey are not very fast. stay in it, you may get a response after a while
13:27:47Strathok, i see you and gromit in there
13:28:13Strathat least i'm not alone ;\
13:29:37Strathhrm... 30 matches for: gnupro "gpl violation"
13:32:15Zagori've been trying to find a price quote for the gnupro toolkit, with little success. the only hit is a review from 2000 citing $79 for "cygnus gnupro toolkit"
13:32:34Zagori'd pay $79 to smite redhat ;)
13:32:48Strathi can't afford that :(
13:33:19Strathwe could pass the "hat" ;)

13:37:05StrathGNUPro Toolkit and Support are available for Linux hosts at $9995/year for small development teams and annual subscriptions are available starting at $1999/seat, 10 seat minimum. Additional host platforms (non-Linux) are available at $12,500 for small teams and $2500/seat for larger groups.
13:37:28Zagorthe #gcc channel was a bit more awake. basically they say it's not proprietary since they ship source to their customers. and their customers are allowed to redistribute it freely but don't...
13:37:35Zagoryeah but i don't want the support
13:37:54uskithen we need to find one of their customers ;)
13:37:56Straththats kinda what i figured
13:38:03Zagoruski: exactly
13:38:31Strathbut they only release the stuff for thier hardware
13:38:37uskione that won't bother giving out the source - they may be afraid of getting bad relations with gnupro's authors because they gave the source to someone else

14:04:44Strathyes yes... i know...
14:05:04Strathposible, but under normal usage, unlikly

14:59:15Zagoryeah the error page was quite impressive :)
14:59:24StrathFrom RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol −− HTTP/1.1:
14:59:24Strath10.4.5 404 Not Found
14:59:24StrathThe server has not found anything matching the Request-URI. No indication is given of whether the condition is temporary or permanent.
14:59:41Strath(more after that....)
14:59:45Zagornot many 404 pages cite the full rfc text
15:00:05BagderStrath: fyi 2616 has obsoleted 2068
15:00:19zeekoewhat page is it?
15:00:22*Bagder has read that one once before
15:00:26zeekoeopera says "Your browser sent a message this server could not understand."
15:00:29Strathi told you, i'm just quoting
15:00:45Strathya, thats the 5180 character url
15:00:46zeekoeafter connecting to five different things in 5 seconds
15:01:05Strathwhich crashes IE
15:01:08zeekoei see now
15:01:40Strathmoz gives the "your browser..." message
15:02:15zeekoewho uses ie seriousy, anyway ;-)
15:02:53Strathof, bagder, you email someone at and tell em thier 404 is outdated
15:03:59Bagderyeah, I bet they would care veeeeeery much
15:04:05Strathand those that do use IE only see the local IE not found page rather than the servers 404
15:04:18Bagderyou can disable that horrible beast
15:04:29Strathi don't use IE
15:04:40Zagoractually i'm not so sure about that. the ie page is only shown if the server page is less than 500 bytes or something.
15:04:43Strathi just try to find new ways to kill it ;)
15:05:18Strathhadn't tried recursive redirect yet
15:05:24zeekoelame excuse...
15:06:41Strathsome people golf, some people ski, I repeatedly kill IE
15:06:52zeekoeIE has also this nice feature, "User Friendly Error Messages", so people will never ever see what's truly happening when an error 500 occurs
15:07:33zeekoetell me what's user friendly about it
15:07:55Strathhey, i learned somthin
15:07:58StrathThe 410 (Gone) status code SHOULD be used if the server knows, through some internally configurable mechanism, that an old resource is permanently unavailable and has no forwarding address.
15:08:42Zagoryeah there's plenty of fun stuff in rfcs that nobody ever implements
15:08:45Strathassuming that hasn't been obsoleted by 2616
15:09:02Bagder2616 adds even more obscure ones, iirc
15:09:04Strath?bagder? :)
15:09:26Strathwhat is 411
15:09:42BagderLength Required
15:10:11Strathk, *chuckle*
15:17:26Strathhrm... wonder why we didn't get a 414
15:18:18Strathit's even in RFC 2068
15:18:38Bagderprobably because 5K is not a too long url
15:19:10Straththe server just barfs
15:19:25Strathcould not understand
15:20:24Strath<zeekoe> opera says "Your browser sent a message this server could not understand."
15:20:53Strathok... grrr... enough of a tangent
15:21:19Strathdamn you dagber
15:21:19zeekoeyeah ok, it's the server that says it
15:22:12Strathjust the plaintext string quoted above
15:22:41Strathi'm not listening,,,,, la la.. lalalalala
15:23:15zeekoelynx complains

17:31:43jim_hWell, I'm experiencing ATA Error -41 - any insights what that might mean?
17:31:56Zagorwhich version?
17:32:20jim_hJBR version 1 - running flashed rom
17:32:40Zagoryes but which rockbox version
17:33:30jim_hCVS-040630 from flash
17:34:21Zagorok. -41 is a failed wait_for_rdy() in the ata driver. does the disk work in usb mode?
17:35:19jim_hno - if i connect the USB cable and then power up, I don't make it to the USB graphic screen
17:35:37Strathdead HDD?
17:35:41Zagorsounds like a problem with your disk then, unfortunately
17:35:56Strathjust swap in a new one
17:36:14jim_hI thought so too, but I swapped out the drive from my laptop and put it in the JBR and got the same error

22:04:27uskioxygen77, i mean, do you think you will be able to support all the hardware ? like the video in, and so on
22:04:41uskialso maybe the video decoding is done using some obscure DSP - do you have enough infos to use it ?
22:05:31oxygen77well, that's another pb, dogger was doing almost all the job on hardware hacking, but he hasn't work on the project for months

22:38:51LinusNamiconn: brief me
22:39:32amiconnFor testing whether leaving out the mas_reset() breaks something, I did a number of recording tests
22:41:10amiconnRegardless whether running from rom or ram, using optimized or plain C ata, using optimized or old recording transfer routines, with or without issuing mas_reset() -
22:41:39amiconn_all_ recordings get bad at some point in time (observed from 3..90 minutes)
22:42:12dstar5what about archos firmware?
22:42:31amiconndstar5: Hmm, good point. Maybe I should try that
22:43:12LinusNi have suspected the file system code for a long time...
22:43:55amiconnLinusN: After that point in time, no proper mpeg headers get recorded. There is still something that looks like mpeg headers, but all check tools complain about mpeg version changes or such

22:46:20amiconnAh, yes. I adjusted the recording level so that there was no clipping; in one try I even lowered the level by 9 dB
22:46:42amiconnUsually, I get headers like FF FA A0 64 or FF FA B0 64 (that is with 44.1 kHz stereo, q=7)

22:51:04LinusNi don't think analyzing the files will get us anywhere
22:51:29*uski got an idea
22:51:41uskiwhy don't you do rm -rf rockbox, then mkdir rockbox, and then rewrite all the code ?
