#rockbox log for 2004-08-27

00:00:06amiconnWarning: found encoding values in non-sorted order (not an error).
00:00:16bagawk[IDC]Dragon: yes that works
00:00:37[IDC]Dragonamiconn: this is from convbdf
00:00:53amiconn[IDC]Dragon: Ah, yes. Could we get rid of it?
00:01:04[IDC]Dragonyou can ignore it, I have to fix this part

00:01:32amiconnbagawk: Yep, I'll commit fix in a moment
00:02:32amiconn[IDC]Dragon: Is it correct that bits_size within struct font is not needed (and not generated by convbdf either)?
00:03:12[IDC]Dragonyes, does it still exist somewhere?
00:03:26amiconnIt was still in font.h ...
00:03:47amiconnThis caused the "missing initializer" warning
00:04:15[IDC]Dragonthe binary format has it, we could store it, but nobody reads it
00:05:45amiconnFix committed.
00:06:19[IDC]Dragonthanks. does it still work?
00:06:49[IDC]Dragon(I had to do the dishes during the last half hour, before I came back)
00:07:36amiconnIt does (only tested with internal font so far, just rebuilding the fonts)

00:55:07amiconnLinus discovered this (but then he wrote the recording in the first place). I fixed & tested
00:55:58[IDC]Dragonjust uploaded the latest to my box, with fonts. I find several not working! :(
00:56:20amiconnThe corrupt frames need further investigation. Perhaps it isn't caused by the recording itself, maybe the filesystem has a bug (Linus also suspects this)
00:56:35amiconn[IDC]Dragon: Which ones?
00:58:53amiconnOoops. This looks rather funny ;-/
00:59:42[IDC]Dragonthat's it
01:00:44[IDC]Dragonthe interesting thing is that we can use some new fonts, which were > 9KB before

09:44:03amiconn(away now)

09:44:44[IDC]Dragon~3KB of ROM and maybe 6 KB in RAM
09:45:13dwihnoGreat job!
09:45:27[IDC]Dragonplus, we could shrink the font buffer, since the fonts are only about half the size now
09:45:36amiconn[IDC]Dragon: If chicage12 is still broken, convbdf didn't get recompiled. It works for me
09:45:54[IDC]Dragonoops, you're right
09:46:07[IDC]Dragonit's not just the Rockbox code...
09:48:52Bagderyeps, most fonts will fit in 4K now
09:50:07Bagderin the current zip, only 3 fonts are bigger
09:50:22[IDC]Dragonthe really big ones are probably not useful anyhow
09:50:46[IDC]Dragonthey are just there because somebody found a .bdf, I guess
09:50:54BagderI believe so too
09:51:14BagderI say let's lower the buffer size to 4000
09:51:52dwihnoand remove the fonts
09:51:56dwihno(the biggest)

10:03:08Bagdersince it was made before the fonts were added to cvs

15:23:55amiconn[IDC]Dragon: Btw, while fixing the font problem, I found the reason why the old code didn't work for font widths > 16. Actually, this would have needed fixing both convbdf and the drawing code too.
15:29:05[IDC]Dragonamiconn: you mean, because the bitmapo is stored in 16 bit data types?
15:29:18 Part oxygen77 ("Cho")
15:29:19 Quit bobTHC ("CGI:IRC (Ping timeout)")
15:53:12amiconn[IDC]Dragon: (1) the calculation in (old) convbfd whether an offset map needed is wrong, and won't work for proportional fonts crossing 16 pixel width
15:53:37amiconn(2) the drawing code assumed width to be always 1 word either
15:54:35amiconn(for fonts without an offset map, that is)
15:56:25[IDC]DragonI don't understand...
15:56:56[IDC]Dragon(1) the pixel map is created in a seriaes of 16 bit values
15:57:18[IDC]Dragonso a glyph can't be wider
15:57:58[IDC]Dragon(2) the drawing code uses the Rockbox bitmap format
16:01:49amiconn(1) If (some) glyphs would be wider than 16 pixels, this would need 2 words (indicated by maxwidth too). The font can only be stored without offset map if (a) all glyphs take the same space and (b) are continuous, i.e. without a gap. (a) is calculated wrong in old convbdf for width >16
16:03:53amiconn(2) Yes, but due to the in-place rotation, the distance between 2 glyphs depends on the requirements of the non-rotated font. The calculation doesn't take into accout that there might have been more than one word per row
16:04:06[IDC]Dragonah, it didn't appear to me that the width can grow into 2 words
16:05:58amiconnTo fix (1), convbdf line 614 (now #ifdef'ed out) should have used pf->maxwidth instead of pf->width[i]
16:06:33[IDC]Dragonprobably the non-rotating variant won't get used again
16:06:53[IDC]Dragonbut so far, I made a #define
16:07:50amiconnYes. Anyway, I wonder why that old bug didn't get detected earlier...
16:08:13[IDC]Dragonbecause such fonts were >9KB?
16:12:32amiconnMaybe. But then I wonder why the width was taken into account for the calculation in the first place. It would have been easier to impose a width limit. It seems that convbdf didn't get much testing...

16:22:57[IDC]Dragonamiconn: we can delete the bitmap_t type and the BITMAP_xx macros from font.h now
16:26:10amiconnyup. Although it might be a good idea to replace BITMAP_WORDS with a new BITMAP_BYTES, and use this instead of (height + 7)/8
16:27:24[IDC]Dragongood idea, improves readybility
16:28:22amiconn(or call this RB_BITMAP_BYTES to indicate it's use)
16:32:55[IDC]Dragonor FONT_ROWS

22:00:43midk_easier installations.
22:00:46 Nick midk_ is now known as midk (
22:01:01SmoothOperatori suppose
22:01:11SmoothOperatorjust installed XP SP2
22:01:59SmoothOperatornot that much differet
22:02:11bagawkSmoothOperator, try the firewall settings
22:02:21bagawki think that is where a lot of the work has been done
22:02:36SmoothOperatoryea i have
22:02:38midkactually, it's a new security control panel, should be in the start menu or control panel.
22:02:44SmoothOperatoryea i found it
22:02:49SmoothOperatorno changes to the interface
22:03:10midkyou expect them to change the whole visual style? it's still xp, just with fixes.
22:03:59SmoothOperatorbut i feel for a 75MB download they could have done more
22:04:14midkit's behind the scenes work
22:04:37midki think you want a new icon package or something, not bug fixes
22:04:53bagawki have not tried SP2, and dont plan to for awhile (atleast on my own system)
22:05:21SmoothOperatorwell im someone who likes my PC bang up to date
22:05:21 Quit midk (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
22:05:32SmoothOperatordownload all the updates as soon as they become available
22:06:02bagawkmy mom had a friend from work that installed SP2 3 days ago his windows is dead because of it
22:06:13SmoothOperatorBagawk u aren't related to Bagder by any chance?
22:06:23SmoothOperatorjust wondered
22:06:26SmoothOperatorfrom the similar names
22:06:31bagawkSmoothOperator, if you have seen the nick dstar5 before, thats me
22:06:45SmoothOperatorbut i have noticed that SP2 has killed the Dell logo when i switch my PC on
22:07:18bagawkreally? the logog in the bios?
22:07:26SmoothOperatorwhen you switch the system on
22:07:33bagawkdo you get some text?
22:07:52SmoothOperatorjust a black screen before the XP logo comes on
22:08:06SmoothOperatorah well
22:08:12SmoothOperatorthis PC is ancient anyway
22:08:21bagawksince this is not my system, and it is the libraries, i will install sp2 just to see
22:08:34bagawki would like the logog to be gone lol
22:08:42SmoothOperatori want one of those new 3.6Ghz systems with 3Gb of RAM and a 400Gb hard disk
22:09:02bagawkamp 64?
22:09:09SmoothOperatorsoon hard disks will go into the terabytes
22:09:26bagawknah not for awhile
22:09:32bagawkatleast for consumers
22:09:40SmoothOperatorbut Intel have made a 1Thz processor
22:10:08SmoothOperatorone small problem though
22:10:29SmoothOperatorit throws out the same amount of heat as a furnace
22:10:50bagawksome people overclocked a 3.2 ghz processor to 5ghz
22:10:58bagawkand was cooled by liquid niro
22:11:01SmoothOperatormust need some serious cooling
22:11:06bagawkthey have a video i think
22:11:09bagawklet me find it
22:11:31SmoothOperator5 years ago this PC was top of the range
22:11:36SmoothOperatornow its stone-age technology
22:11:55bagawki have 1ghz computer at home
22:11:56SmoothOperator(excuse the pun)
22:12:01bagawkit is fine
22:12:08dwihno1.6GHz is good enough for me
22:12:09bagawkjust takes about 2 hours to compile linux kernel :P
22:12:26SmoothOperatorI think a 2.8Ghz Celeron will outperform my 1.5Ghz Pentium 4
22:13:31bagawkthere is the video
22:13:44dwihnohow big is it?
22:13:48bagawkhold on
22:14:06bagawk23 mb
22:14:07SmoothOperatorAre the Celerons really that slow?
22:14:27bagawksome are
22:14:36bagawkthe ones with no cache are SLOW
22:14:43SmoothOperatorbut 2.8Ghz is quite fast for a Celeron
22:14:44bagawkbut i do not think they are making those any more

22:19:35SmoothOperatorhey, as anyone seen the new Sony HD player?
22:19:56SmoothOperator30 hour battery life
22:20:00SmoothOperatormagnesium chassis
22:20:12dwihnosounds sexy
22:20:24SmoothOperatorthere is only 1 small problem
22:20:28SmoothOperatorit only plays ATRAC3
22:20:31dwihnoit's vaporware? :)
22:21:08SmoothOperatorhere is the solution
22:21:28SmoothOperatorUse the SonicStage software to convert your MP3s to ATRAC3, then back up all your MP3s onto CD or DVD or whatever
22:21:29dwihnohack the firmware
22:21:57dwihnoShouldn't the backups have been made _before_ converting? :)
22:21:58scott666SmoothOperator: i keep seeing commercials for it
22:22:02scott666god i hate macy gray
22:22:10bagawkso do i
22:22:31SmoothOperatorme 2
22:22:44scott666i dont trust it
22:22:45SmoothOperatordamn i hate those li-ion batteries
22:23:06scott666my guess is that its all low bit rate
22:23:19scott666like you can get 20 hours out of rockbox playing 32kbps audio books
22:23:26SmoothOperatorbut i feel that you are reaching dimishing returns
22:23:52SmoothOperatoryou can only squeeze the file so much before sound quality suffers regardless of the codec used, be it MP3, ATRAC3, OGG and what not
22:24:38scott666i dont understand why they chose to do atrac3 only
22:24:41scott666horrible move
22:24:59SmoothOperatori see a codec where you can squeeze 999,999,999,999,999,999 CD quality files on an old 1.44Mb floppy disk
22:25:04scott666i have 50GB of mp3, im rather haevily invested in mp3s
22:25:28scott666SmoothOperator: midi?
22:26:09SmoothOperatorthe file would look something like 03 - Macy Gray - I Try.mdk
22:26:16SmoothOperatorits called the mdk codec

22:26:30scott666i think midi would sound better
22:26:44bagawkstuiped library systems
22:27:15bagawki get a BSOD sometimes when i plug in anything into usb
22:28:54midkSmoothOperator, that's not really possible
22:29:09SmoothOperatorcould be, u know how advanced technology is
22:29:15scott666midis are almost that small
22:29:35SmoothOperatorive read somewhere they are working on a codec that makes tiny files, it works by predicting what the waveform does next during playback
22:29:41midkconsidering the length of a filename, even if the files took up next to no space the filenames would be too big to get anything to fit.
22:29:57midk99,999,999,999,999,999 CD quality files on a 1.44mb floppy is just impossible.
22:30:00scott666yeah, floppys are a bad example
22:30:24scott666actually, im not sure FAT32 supports that many files
22:30:31midk999,999,999,999,999,999 files even if they contained nothing would still take up a lot of space due to filenames.
22:30:36SmoothOperatorthis is getting silly now
22:30:37midkit's a bogus number
22:30:48SmoothOperatorwe are all sounding like mikeholdens now
22:30:54midkyou're saying 999 bazillion files?
22:31:20midk999 bazillion 999 trillion 999 billion 999 million 999 thousand 9 hundred 99?
22:31:35midkassuming bazillion is the right terminology.
22:31:48SmoothOperatorhey, as if someone has a music collection that big anyway
22:32:10midkuhh, earth to smooth, you said it not me.
22:32:25SmoothOperatorhey, i was joking
22:32:44midkwow, you sure fooled me. ;
22:33:00SmoothOperatorthen we all turned into argueing mikeholdens
22:34:17SmoothOperatorwhich form of digital connection sounds better, electrical or optical?
