#rockbox log for 2005-04-11"> .. yes, I am bored.
00:25:18rasherHi, Bagder
00:25:36rasherQuestion about the rockbox digest news-thingy you did once (that was you right?)
00:25:39rasherwhy did it stop?
00:25:56Bagderdue to my lack of time
00:26:04rasherThought so
00:26:06rashershame :-\
00:26:48rasherI'd totally do it if possible
00:27:13Bagderwe could certainly arrange that
00:28:21rasherThat'd be great.. the "news" on the front page is a bit.. lacking
00:29:40Bagderyou have any particular ideas or suggestions on how you'd like to do it?
00:30:27rasherNot really.. any way it suits you really.. whatever's easiest
00:31:18BagderI did the editing of it in a plain text file directly on the site
00:31:32Bagderand then I had a script that generated the html and the mail version of it
00:31:39Bagderoh, and the rss
00:32:26preglowwhat is/was the rockbox digest news-thingy?
00:32:33rashernews tidbits
00:32:37rasheralso available as rss
00:33:06preglowrasher: so you're going to do a giga update now then? :P
00:33:15rasher'fraid not
00:33:30rashermore like "pretend the last 1,5 years didn't happen
00:33:33preglowNEWS FLASH: ROCKBOX RUNS ON H1x=
00:34:05preglowpretty quiet these days anyway
00:34:28Bagderwell, it comes and goes
00:34:33Bagderalways has
00:34:51rasherstuff like the bootloader tested with 1.65, trigger recording etc
00:35:39elinenbeHCl: I have a question for you... if you are here... how can I change the LCD mode in rockboy (from skipping every 9th line, to skipping bottom 16, to skipping top 16, etc...
00:35:43Bagderrasher: ok, I'll start with adding the existing stuff to the www CVS and you can check it out
00:36:12preglowelinenbe: hold button
00:36:31preglowelinenbe: or more like hold switch
00:37:05rasherBagder: alright.. how are you suggesting this done?
00:37:24rasher(this = me putting news in some file on your server)
00:37:30Bagderwell, if you feel like it, you can edit the files and commit them
00:37:53Bagderas the server updates from cvs automatically
00:38:20rasherah, cvs access.. sounds like a reasonable way
00:40:20Bagderif you checkout/update the www module now, you'll find a 'digest' dir
00:40:44rasherI just started a checkout :)
00:41:12Bagderthere's a bunch of useless crap in the www cvs... :-)
00:41:20rasheroh this'll take some time
00:41:37Bagdera great chance to excersize your bandwidth ;-)
00:41:54Bagderbut of course, the server is only on 2mbit
00:42:12rasherthat's fine, my connection is 256kbit
00:42:56rasherwhich is not at all fine
00:42:56rasherdevcon pictures :D
00:44:32elinenbepreglow: thanks!
00:45:02rasherpreglow, Bagder: remember who managed to boot the iriver firmware from within rockbox?
00:47:04Bagderripnetuk I believe, George Styles
00:56:53preglowanother guy i haven't seen in a while
00:57:05preglowi wonder what became of linuxstb
00:57:34amiconnBagder: If you have the plugin deps on your list, could you pls have a look at the simulator deps as well?
00:57:54Bagderright, I'll add them to the list
00:58:14amiconnI tried it myself, but failed :(
01:00:53amiconnThere are at least 2 problems: (1) the common simulator lib 'make' is called twice. One of these calls happens after linking the exe (!) (2) The dependencies for linking are wrong, so that certain changes (in the lib iirc) need 2 runs of 'make' to get them into the executable
01:01:13Bagderyeps, I've seen it too
01:02:28amiconnThere's another suggestion that would save quite some time, especially on cygwin, but I don't know how hard that would be:
01:03:20amiconnFor dirs that are not included in 'make' for a certain target (e.g. the codecs when building for archos), also don't call 'make clean' when cleaning
01:03:57Bagderyes, I have some ideas on more general build clenups
01:04:03Bagderafter I checked how the linux kernel does it
01:04:27amiconnOk :)
01:05:18amiconnMy rockbox ToDo list gets longer and longer... :(
01:05:32Bagdersuch is life
01:07:19*rasher sighs
01:07:40rasherapparently my computer won't boot with this dvd-drive connected and a dvd in the drive
01:07:56rasheror it'll boot, but linux breaks
01:08:01rasheras does windows
01:08:07rashernot quite sure what's happening
01:08:13rasherand I can't eject :(
01:08:20rasherno eject button
01:08:45Bagderand its a laptop?
01:08:54rasherNo, regular
01:09:12rasherthe dvd drive comes from a dead dvd-player that happened to use an ide dvd-drive
01:09:19rasherhence the lack of eject button
01:09:28Bagderthen open it up and pull out the ide cable for the dvd to start with
01:09:50rasherwell I know it'll boot then
01:09:54rasherI just connected it
01:09:58Bagderisn't there even a little whole for a forced eject?
01:10:15rasherDon't think so.. well I could have a closer look
01:10:16Bagderlike those old sun floppies
01:10:52rasherNot sure why that'd be included in a dvd-player though
01:11:04rasherworst part is, it's eaten my Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy dvd!
01:11:58rasherI've had it connected before.. used ide to eject it
01:12:23*amiconn goes to bed
01:12:37 Part amiconn
01:13:39rasherokay, taking the drive apart was pretty easy
01:13:42rasherdisc salvaged
01:14:10rashernow to see if I can boot with it connected
01:14:45rasherI'm also wondering if this extra connector at the back might be for ejecting
01:15:25rasherit has power, ide, master/slave selector pins, audio, and two random pins
01:17:00rasherstill won't boot
01:19:12rasheroh, it boots
01:19:20rasherit just sits for a few minutes with no messages
01:19:36elinenbeBagder: I'm going to Tanzania this summer... what was your favorite place you went when you were there?
01:19:52elinenbeBwejuu beach looks amazing!
01:20:40Bagderit was
01:20:55Bagdernot too crowded ;-)
01:21:33Bagderwell, we loved Zanzibar in general and the safari trip was great
01:21:35elinenbeyeah −− that looks nice.
01:21:40elinenbehow long were you there for?
01:21:45Bagdera month
01:22:12elinenbemy girlfriend is going to be doing dentistry in Songea in the south-west for a few weeks, and we want to make a trip of it.
01:22:17elinenbewell, a vacation
01:22:39elinenbewas everything pretty cheap once you were there? or were the prices expensive (for the touristy stuff)?
01:22:51Bagdereverything is dead cheap, except safaris
01:23:11Bagderwe spent like 40% of our budget on the one week safari
01:24:13Bagdera decent safari went for around 140-160 USD per day per person
01:24:40elinenbeyeah −− well, I would have to be on a pretty tight budget.
01:24:58elinenbewhat was the price −− or about −− of your bungalow on Bwejuu Beach?
01:25:18BagderI don't remember now, but it was not many dollars
01:25:31Bagdertourists have abandoned Tanzania
01:25:45Bagderso there are many many deserted hotels and beach places
01:25:54elinenbewhy is that?
01:26:02elinenbewhat has happened there?
01:26:02Bagderthe US embassy bombing
01:26:10Bagderin Dar Es Salaam
01:26:50elinenbewell, that doesn't bother me... that was 1998 anyway.
01:27:18Bagderperhaps people have returned more now, we were there in '02
01:27:20 Quit rasher ("CGI:IRC")
01:27:34preglowthe chances of being killed by bombs when on vacation are infintesimally small

01:27:54preglowrasher: you're booting
01:28:10BagderTanzania is a very calm country, by african standards I'd say extremely calm ;-)
01:28:15rasherI am?
01:28:28rasherI mean apart from now
01:28:30preglowrasher: you might be :-)
01:28:33elinenbehow did that trip compare to your other trips?
01:28:38rasherI hit backspace and firefox thinks I mean "back"
01:28:51preglowahh, you're using the web interface, yes
01:29:21Bagderelinenbe: Tanzania was hard to get around in on a low budget sometimes, since much of the tourist places seem to be directed to jet set tourists
01:29:35Bagderso sometimes we couldn't do what we wanted
01:29:38elinenbeI see.
01:29:49Bagdersince we didn't wanna rent a whole boat or go far with taxis
01:29:49rasherYeah.. I rid myself of irc more or less
01:30:03preglowrasher: a good plan
01:30:18Bagderelinenbe: but we'd never been in the real africa before, so it was a good experience
01:30:31rasherexcept for this channel, which has an actual purpose
01:30:42rashernot keeping an irc client around for it though
01:31:12rasherBagder: So the plan is.. I get cvs commit acces and start updating log.t and things will Just Work?
01:31:16rasheror.. what?
01:31:24Bagderrasher: that's the plan
01:32:26rasherSounds good
01:32:32Bagderrasher: give me a preferred user namd and password and I'll set you up

01:35:16elinenbewell, we will be on a serious budget, so I guess we'll see what we can do...
01:35:59Bagderelinenbe: if you're not too picky you can often live and eat extremely cheap
01:36:45Bagder"we'd like some food. What do you serve?" -"We have meat. And rice."
01:36:58Bagder(actual quote ;-)
01:37:18elinenbewell, that works for me.
01:37:23preglowmean, good, rice, good, all good
01:37:25preglowmeat <-
01:37:43preglowi'm off to bed, later all
01:37:47Bagderand when we asked, they could in fact make eggs too ;-)
01:37:47elinenbeBagder: you know the default iriver firmware is VERY nice compared to the default archos firmware...
01:37:58 Quit preglow ("krams")
01:38:12BagderI hardly remember the archos one
01:38:13elinenbeit is going to be a challenge for rockbox to look nicer than the iriver firmware.
01:38:22elinenbewell, that is because the archos one is shit.
01:39:14rasherI don't care about "nicer than the iriver firmware"
01:39:18rashercleaner, though...
01:39:20Bagderrasher: you are now added and recognized as committer
01:39:30elinenberasher: what did you add?
01:39:43rasheradd... what?!
01:39:48elinenbeI think that we need to get the grayscale patch into the CVS
01:39:52elinenbefor the iriver.
01:40:05Bagderelinenbe: rasher is about to attempt to update the digest section
01:40:20 Part kergoth ("Leaving")
01:40:31elinenbeoh yeah, that is very dated.
01:40:31rasherOh.. like that.. I'm not going to touch rockbox
01:41:46rasherBut I think there's going to be major reworking of the graphics layer
01:42:34elinenbethere is going to be a major reworking of a lot of the layers... although it will take some time.
01:42:56rasherwhich may be why the grayscale patch is on hold.. also because markun appears to have vanished
01:43:58elinenbeis he the person who did the grayscale patch?
01:46:25rasherHrm.. first task.. add all old newsitems to the digest, I guess
01:46:36rasherfor completeness

13:27:53ripnetuki have reason to believe that the stock rockbox firmware bumps up the probability of getting a track on shuffle if you have listened to soemthing in that directory recently... it may just be conincidence but several times lately I have listened to a track for the first time in AGES and then another track from the same album has come up on shuffle later that day...

13:32:31ripnetuki think 95% of coding is 'cleaning up' :)
13:33:11ripnetukby which i mean that i seem to spend more time renaming variables to more sensible names, and making routines more generic than actual new dev
13:33:31LinusNi never make routines more generic if i don't have to

13:34:29LinusNno need to spend time making a function generic if i don't even know if it will be used more than once

13:35:06LinusNpart of my general programming philosophy: KISS
13:35:24ripnetukyes. good philosophy
13:35:32ripnetukpart of my tidying up is often simplification
13:35:52LinusNthat i can buy
13:35:56ripnetukwhen you can pull out 75% of the code and have it do the same thing (eg, removing a layer of abstraction)... very satifying

13:38:22*t0mas too
13:38:26t0masnice idea
13:38:54ripnetukt0mas - i would point you at wikipedia, but it says "An abstraction is an idea, concept, or word which defines the phenomena which make up the concrete events or things which the abstraction refers to," which i dont think simplifies it :)
13:39:33ripnetukidea - pocketpc port of rockbox to run on my cellphone - once we have software decoding framework up and running, it should be fairly straighforeward
13:39:44ripnetukat least compared to porting to a new embedded devic
13:40:21ripnetukwindows media player on my phone is so daft - it draws a MASSIVE pause button, but doesnt display the id3 info for artist etc... how lame
13:41:52LinusNhehe, i broke the power button on my trusty nokia 8310 this weekend
13:42:45ripnetukoh no :(
13:42:46LinusNit turned out that it has the same type of buttons as the H1x0, so i just took a button from a broken H120 and replaced it
13:43:24ripnetukthe 8310 is inho the best non-toy phone ever made... mine went to the gf and she is still using it years later
13:43:30LinusNone of those few occasions where it's actually useful to have an mp3 player junkyard
13:44:00ripnetuki had to use play-dough to fill in the gaps around the screen on my phone this weekend
13:44:09LinusN8210 was also very good, but the lcd was badly connected
13:44:36ripnetukalthough mine got stroppy when I dropped it down a toilet (its true)

13:44:58ripnetukstill, that was a good excuse to get a 8310
13:46:59*ripnetuk remembers the days of a phone battery lasting a week on one charge
13:47:39amiconnripnetuk: Mine still does (usually)
13:48:38ripnetukmy old one does... but I got tempted by smartphones. The 6600 lasts about a day, and my new Orange SPV lasts 2/3 days... but it DOES have a .net runtime on it :)
13:48:58ripnetukand it CAN talk to my GPS and do sat nav, and it CAN play divX for commuting...
13:49:21amiconnI don't need smartphones or camera, colour display and other gimmicks
13:49:24ripnetukand it has a standrard mini-usb plug for charging, so i can charge it anywhere I can get to a pc
13:50:03ripnetukamicon - i think for me its worth it
13:50:30amiconnYes - that's why there is the choice.
13:50:48ripnetukthe only time it really bothers me is at festivals where there is no power
13:50:55ripnetukand thats like once or twice a year
13:50:57amiconnI simply want a light and small phone

17:32:37CoCoLUSthe "noob" user isn't really concered with who done it or what a hex file is... so i think (theres a seperate credits page, i think) names like linus should be removed, and technical terms like hex file should be avoided :)

19:11:36rashernot really

19:31:17Tang_it's in french however
19:31:25Tang_is there Bob here?
19:31:34Tang_it's evry technical
19:31:47Tang_will be hard to traduce for me
19:31:58rasherhrm, 4-pixel error in the upside mode
19:32:17Tang_"Les specs vorbis autorisent des fenêtres très grandes qui sont utilisées pour les bas débits dans l'encodeur actuel. Mais ces tailles sont trop grandes pour pouvoir être utilisées par les décodeurs embarqués, principalement à cause de la quantité de mémoire necessaire. (plus de mémoire->plus cher et plus de mémoire à acceder->plus lent)"
19:32:29Tang_i try a translation:
19:32:57Tang_the specification of Vorbis allow big "windows" used for low bitrate
19:33:35Tang_But theses sizes are too big to be used by embeded codec specialy due to BUFFER size limitation
19:34:15Tang_windows= window of transformed frequencies
19:34:25preglowyes, i know
19:34:27Tang_wish it's understandable

19:34:37preglowlittle to be done about it
19:34:42Tang_sorry i wasn't sure it was the good word in English
19:34:52Tang_since it's technical language
19:35:21preglowi'm really looking forward to seeing vorbis2
19:36:40rasherI wish someone would create a peeler
19:37:33lolo-laptopIn rockbox, it wouldn't be possible to handle those larger windows by using part of the codec buffer for audio buffer temporarily −− ie we're decoding low bitrate crap so we don't need the whole codec buffer for predecode? (or maybe I'm just talking out of my ass)
19:37:42preglowsomeone has tried, it wasn't as easy as they thought
19:38:21preglowlolo-laptop: you're assuming the device has ram
19:38:40lolo-laptoppreglow: s/in rockbox/on the iRiver/
19:38:50preglowthis will not be a problem for the h120, which has extra ram
19:38:55lolo-laptopahh, gotcha.
19:38:57preglowit will be for the devices that only have the ram on the cpu

23:45:07rashercan I do this using cvs somehow?
23:47:38preglowmaking a patch?
23:47:59rasheroh well, nearly have one now
23:48:08preglowwell, no, not when libmusepack isn't already in cvs
23:48:19rasherbut the rest of the files?
23:48:25preglowcvs diff
23:48:38preglowmight do the trick
23:48:55preglowanything special you did to the libmusepack source?
23:48:57rasherlet's see what happens
23:49:03rashernot really
23:49:14rasherjust compacted it
23:49:25rasherremoved all the crust and moved it into a single dir
23:49:53rasherah damn
23:49:57rasherI have www checked out
23:50:35preglowcvs diff takes parameters as well
23:50:39preglowif you know which dirs you have changed
23:50:53preglowbut i don't know if cvs diff alone makes a patch
23:51:08rasherlooks like it does
23:51:19rasherlooks about right too
23:51:23 Quit bobdbob (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
23:52:11rasherrandom files I have changed for other reasons...
23:53:20preglowi take it you haven't made a mpc2wav as well? :P
23:53:29rasherwell that's a disappointingly short diff
23:53:33rasherI sure haven't
23:54:07rashernot sure if this is a real patch or what.. looks a bit dodgy">
23:54:36rasherif it doesn't work, shouldn't be much work to apply it by hand
23:55:51rasherall yours :)
23:56:48preglowok, i'll have a look at it soon
23:57:13preglowi'll have to hear with the guys what the stance is on modifying the dir structure of the codecs, though
23:57:35preglowsomeone mentioned modifying as little as possible, and i don't know if it applies to that as well
23:57:52rasherI think that was done with... some of the other ones as well
23:58:21preglowi won't commit it until tomorrow anyway
