00:30:09LinusNamiconn: you only need to keep track of the current file size
00:30:46amiconnLinusN: So it would be possible to simply set file->size to 0 when opened with O_TRUNC?
00:33:17amiconnHmm. Is there some test code (I wouldn't want to test this on my real disk)
00:34:21LinusNthere is a test program with a simulated ATA disk
00:34:34LinusNfor linux...
00:34:56LinusNit might work with cygwin, but don't count on it
00:35:00amiconnLinusN: In case you don't already have that info: , then click on "system interfaces" on the top left, then again bottom left
00:36:23LinusNah, nice
00:36:46TempisI have a question about the display on a studio 10
00:36:56amiconnLinusN: Reading the original IEEE publications is not free...
00:36:57LinusNonlinepubs, sounds nice, i could use a beer or two :-)
00:37:03LinusNTempis: shoot
00:37:08amiconnLinusN: lol
00:37:19TempisI am getting garbled text on the display
00:37:38Tempisand then sometimes nothing on the display
00:37:47LinusNwhat happens if you push it?
00:38:03Tempispush the display?
00:38:08LinusNyes, apply some pressure
00:38:16Tempislet me check
00:38:59Tempisnothing really
00:39:31LinusNwell, you should operate the device while pushing the lcd, to see if it works
00:39:54LinusNand if the lcd is totally blank, you must push it while starting the device
00:40:01Tempissometimes it works sometimes it doesnt
00:40:09amiconnLinusN: From reading that, I learned that while we don't need to remember the O_TRUNC flags after open(), we need to remember the O_APPEND flag
00:40:25LinusNthe lcd plate is only glued to the connector
00:40:30Tempisi see
00:40:44Tempispushing while starting seems to have fixed it
00:41:01TempisI have accidentally dropped it once or twice
00:41:13amiconnLinusN: "O_APPEND: If set, the file offset shall be set to the end of the file prior to each write." (notice the last 2 words)
00:41:29LinusNyou can take off the cover and wedge some rubber or so to push the lcd to the connector
00:41:44***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
00:42:21TempisI might just do that
00:42:24LinusNamiconn: yes, we should do a seek for each write, but that will kill performance
00:42:26Tempisthanks for the tip
00:42:35LinusNTempis: been there myself :-)
00:42:36Tempisalways a pleasure with you guys
00:43:05 Nick midk is now known as midk|doom3 (
00:43:08LinusNand we truncate on close for performance reasons
00:43:32amiconnYes, but we truncate wrong...
00:43:44*LinusN has a really hard time dismounting daniels laptop...
00:43:53LinusNamiconn: yes we do
00:44:02LinusNbut we should still do it on close
00:44:31amiconnIf the fat driver can handle this, simply setting file->size to 0 shouldn't hurt performance. Then the real truncation still takes place on closing
00:45:24LinusNyes, the truncating is done by performing a fat_seek to the desired offset, and then do fat_truncate
00:45:44 Part midk|doom3 ("just STOP it arspy")
00:45:52Tempiswhen I power my archos on, I have to hold the power button in until I the version number on the screen, is that normal?
00:45:53amiconnFor the append case: we could check if file->fileoffset != file->size , and only do the seek if this is the case.
00:47:14LinusNso we set the file size to 0 in open(), and in close() we change line 239 to:
00:47:38LinusN rc = ftruncate(fd, file->filesize);
00:48:14LinusN rc = ftruncate(fd, file->size);
00:49:15amiconnyes, In open, of course if (flags & O_TRUNC) file->size = 0;
00:49:43LinusNTempis: yes, that's normal
00:50:39amiconnLinusN: We can ditch file->trunc then (though it may slightly hurt performance for files that are not opened with O_TRUNC)
00:51:34LinusNfat_seek / fat_truncate can take a long time on long files
00:51:39Tempisahh, good
00:51:47TempisI thought it was, but wasn't sure
00:52:16amiconnTempis, LinusN: If the players were flashable, it should improve startup behaviour, right?
00:52:44LinusNin what sense?
00:53:21LinusNyes, it may be slightly faster, and we might not be forced to hold ON for so long
00:53:39amiconnShorter hold time of power button necessary, and faster boot (but then I don't know whether the Archos boot takes that long for players)
00:53:40LinusNbut the player startup time is quite fast anyway, imho
00:53:54Tempisyeah, its pretty fast
00:53:59Tempis20 seconds maybe
00:54:10Tempisperhaps less
00:54:14TempisI've never timed it
00:54:15amiconnThe Archos recorder boot time is looong
00:54:31LinusNi'd say 5-6 secs
00:54:36LinusNon the player
00:55:29LinusNi have to go now, cu guys
00:55:39Tempis10 seconds from power on till I can play something
00:55:53 Part LinusN
00:56:19amiconnRecorder boot with Archos fw is ~12..15 sec, flashed with rockbox it takes 3 sec (!)
00:58:37amiconnMost players are also flashable technically, but rockbox doesn't run correctly cold-started on the players. That's because the guy that developed the flash procedures doesn't have a working player to test with
00:59:16Tempisany chance of that changing?
01:00:03amiconnIf someone with the necessary knowledge (and time) gets hold of a player, maybe yes.

09:23:58LinusNany luck with your fm?
09:24:17Christi-SNo Linus. Looks like it's a hardware problem. :(
09:24:32Christi-SI'm trying to find my screwdriver so I can take it to bits.
09:24:58Christi-SWeird thing is that it won't even turn on unless there's AC power plugged in.
09:25:15LinusNdoes the drive spin when you charge?
09:26:15Christi-SNot while charging, no.
09:26:32Christi-SIf you try to turn it on while charging, then it tries to and fails.
09:26:56 Join Bagder [0] (
09:27:19LinusNi'm of course referring to your opinion about the drive spinup
09:28:39*Christi-S nods. I now think it's something other than that. Possibly a dodgy contact somewhere.
09:29:19LinusNbut you claimed that it tried to spin up when you inserted the charger
09:29:55LinusNi had a similar problem once with my fm
09:30:06Christi-SMy box does that sometimes.
09:30:26Christi-SIt's kind of non-deterministic.
09:30:34LinusNit refused to start, and it behaved weird when i attached the charger
09:30:56LinusNresetting continuously
09:31:09Christi-SIf you try to turn the box on with the charger in, it's resetting continuously, yes.
09:31:35LinusNwhat happens if you attach both ac and usb?
09:31:58Christi-SThe sound it's now making doesn't sound so much like drive spinnup, but I'm at a loss to think what it does sound like.
09:33:03Christi-SSame thing happens with both USB and mains.
09:33:19LinusNi mean simultaneously
09:33:28Christi-S(Where's my bloody philips screwdriver gone?)
09:34:02Christi-SYes. Simultaniously (although that's a bit hard to test, my mains connector is slightly dodgy and requires angling to make it work.

09:51:48[IDC]Dragon(I'm an expert in blowing that chip)
09:53:58[IDC]Dragonit even looked puffy
09:54:25LinusNi didn't know that the 6650 was used for the charging

10:17:26[IDC]DragonI only heared that it's about 1 m longer and twice the weight of the original
10:17:43[IDC]Dragonwhich I found quite remarkable

10:23:28Bagderthe older aclass was shorter, I believe
10:23:30Zagormaybe differs depending on year. nm.

14:54:21[IDC]Dragonwe'll links twice, correct?
14:54:26amiconnI think it should be a separate file. The variants (v1/v2/fm) can be handled with simple #ifdefs. We should keep in mind that the start addresses are tailored for the current flash images.
14:54:53[IDC]Dragonthen it should be an extra file, apart from

15:27:50Bagderits very annoying that this is so sensitive on correct gcc and binutils and whatever
15:28:27kurzhaarrockerLinusN: are you still interested in including the recording trigger or did I make you give up with my crappy code? ;)
15:29:48[IDC]DragonBagder: it probably doesn't have to, LinusN fixed his iramcopy trick in a backwards compatible way
15:30:32[IDC]Dragonand ROMbox doesn't *require* gcc3.3, it just helps on the size
15:31:17LinusNkurzhaarrocker: i am very interested, i just haven't had time during my vacation
15:31:31kurzhaarrockerToo many fish I hope :)
15:32:12LinusN[IDC]Dragon: do you know anything about the panasonic cd changer protocol?
15:32:29LinusNwhat's the polarity of the serial data line?
15:33:08 Part Zagor
15:33:26[IDC]Dragonfrankly, I don't know
15:33:38[IDC]Dragondoes it look similar to Alpine?
15:33:47[IDC]Dragonhow many wires?
15:37:30[IDC]DragonLinusN: what are you up to?
15:37:30LinusNnever mind, i'll find out, i just asked you in case you knew
15:37:57LinusNi want to enable the cd changer input in my car
15:38:25[IDC]Dragonwith a uC?
15:38:37[IDC]Dragonor Archos?
15:38:44amiconnBagder: (makefile patch) (1) make clean doesn't remove and rombox.[elf|bin]. (2) it fails after trying to build rombox.ucl:
15:38:45LinusNyeah, i thought of a pic
15:39:03amiconnuclpack -none /home/Administrator/rb-patched/build-recorder/rombox.bin /home/Administrator/rb-patche

15:39:31Bagderis it possible that uclpack doesn't return 0 when -none is used?
15:39:48[IDC]Dragonoops, perhaps
15:39:52amiconnThe file rombox.ucl isn't generated either
15:41:00amiconnBagder: Probably found it: you wrote -none instead of −−none
15:42:06amiconnTesting... succeeded
15:43:43amiconnComparing rombox.ucl with what is produced by my "old" build process...
15:44:19amiconnIs there some standard binary comparison tool?
15:45:20amiconnArgs, of corse they differ - different build time
15:45:49Bagderthey should be the same size though
15:46:10amiconnSize is the same, so it does look good

15:51:40[IDC]DragonBagder: does/will your build check the size of rockbox.bin plus ROM_START? and skip the rombox generation if >256k?
15:53:10Bagdernot yet
15:53:54lImbusLinusN: do you remember you told me the "External:" power indication in Debug->battery is wrong ? IiIrc, you said it's wrong scale.
15:54:10[IDC]Dragonwould be cool, and automatically take care about the FM image not fitting
15:54:21Bagder[IDC]Dragon: since it fails for me now it is a bit hard to try out the fancy parts
15:54:58[IDC]Dragonsorry for being pushy
15:55:04Bagderno worries
15:55:29lImbusLinusN: I just bought a new (universal) "wall wart" and whatever voltage I set up, it's showing +- 5.30 (like the original ac power does) or nothing (= 0.00)
15:56:58 Join Zagor [242] (
15:57:08kurzhaarrockerlImbus: iirc the voltage of the battery is shown. But what you switch on your walwart plugin is the input voltage. I wouldn't set it highter than 9 V.
15:57:52Zagori charge my jbr20 with 12V
15:58:02Zagor(if that's what you are discussing?)
15:58:26kurzhaarrockerDoesn't it get very hot, Zagor?

15:59:09BagderLinusN: you aware of the needed binutil 2.15 "hack" ?
15:59:26Zagoraccording to data in the batteryfaq, 11V+ charging is 2x faster than 9V
15:59:56kurzhaarrockerok. It's been a while since I last read the battery faq...
15:59:56LinusNBagder: needed hack?
16:00:16amiconnLinusN: Overlapping sections...
16:00:57LinusNwell, i changed the rockbox lds file to be able to link with the newest binutils
16:00:58Zagorhmm. tortoisecvs has *removed* btween 1.4.0 and 1.6.14 :(
16:01:08Zagorremoved features
16:02:07BagderLinusN: it doesn't with the file

16:25:39lImbuskurzhaarrocker: have a look at it. there is a line for the batt voltage as well es one for the external.
16:26:09jborockbox developers: thank you for the best thing since sliced bread
16:26:22lImbusaltough the external delivers about 9 v (verified) the display says something about 5,30 v.
16:26:33jbo(altho it's still not quite as good as cold beer)
16:27:07kurzhaarrockerThat's interesting, lImbus
16:27:09lImbusLinus said it's a scaling bug. And I tried to adjust the ac-adaptors voltage by controlling the display, but this doesn't work either.
16:27:50jboi do have a question, tho - when flashing my recorder (v1) to the latest CVS build, the firmware_rec.bin files are missing and only available in the 2.2 version
16:28:09jbowill this affect the success of the flashing?
16:29:02kurzhaarrockerMine says ~15V. A value that makes sense for 9V transformer without load.
16:29:11kurzhaarrocker(it's not chargin now)
16:35:59lImbuskurzhaarrocker: which model ?
16:36:06kurzhaarrockerRecorder 15
16:36:28lImbusso a v1. me too (v1 20 upgraded to 40)
16:37:08lImbusmine is not charging either and says 5.30
16:39:51jbowhoops. sorry y'all, just read up on "Bringing in a current or personal build of Rockbox"
16:39:54jbomea culpa
16:40:45lImbusjbo: np. I just wanted to recommend you to first (/intially) flash with 2.2, then update to a daily build
16:41:19jboalready upgraded to 2.2, but i'm having some problems with weird and intermittent stopping
16:41:42jboi breifly put the 02sept2004 version on it yesterday and it was gloriously free of such issues

16:45:26lImbusstopping ? never heard about that
16:47:45jboyeah. sometimes it'll play a few seconds of the song then stop and go back to the song listings, as if i had stopped it myself
16:49:09lImbusI just checked: I ordered my unit a week after 2.2 has been released.
16:50:34jboso lemme get this straight
16:51:09jboto flash the daily build (after 2.2 has been sucessfully flashed), i put the daily rockbox.ajz and 'rocks' directory onto my archos recorder
16:51:19jbothen play the .ucl file
16:51:30jboand that's it?

16:52:37webguest83Anyone know if I can run the archos off of a power supply only and remove the batteries?
16:54:07jbothe supplied wall warts don't produce enough current to run the archos sans batteries, iirc

17:36:39dwihnoIt's quite simple
