#rockbox log for 2005-04-21

00:00:07amiconnHowever, the drawmode stuff in the grayscale lib needs rework too
00:00:32amiconnSomebody lend me his time machine ;-)
00:00:46HCl :P
00:00:50HClfunction pointer arrays? o.o;;
00:01:03amiconnNot really difficult
00:01:12HClyea, i guess not..
00:01:16amiconnThe most difficult thing was to get the declaration right
00:01:22HCli'm mostly focusing on getting it to work for now.
00:01:29HCli used function pointer arrays in my n64 emu..
00:07:08HCldone everything up to drawrect
00:09:47HClbitmap's *data = twodimensional array with native pixel data with width x and height y?

00:10:43HCland whats stride..?
00:11:49amiconn*data = twodimensional array with pixel data with _byte_ width 'stride' and any height
00:12:12amiconndata format is native for xxx_bitmap()
00:12:20*HCl scratches his head
00:12:32amiconnIt's not too difficult
00:12:32HClso every x stride bytes, you'd be on the second line?
00:12:55amiconnx and y define where on the screen you start drawing
00:13:06HCloh right.
00:13:14amiconnwidth and height define the pixel width of the (partial) bitmap you want to draw
00:13:18rasherso once this redesign gets done, anything drawing to lcd needs to be fixed?
00:13:21HClhow would it know that it was at the end of the bitmap?
00:13:40amiconn'stride' is there to allow for drawing partial bitmaps
00:13:45HClsorry, i meant every width stride bytes, you'd be on the second line?
00:14:02HClmaybe i should just leave this to markun o.o;
00:14:16amiconnYes, every line of the source bitmap consists of 'stride' bytes
00:14:49HClwhich doesn't have to be the same of width, and if width is bigger than stride, its irrellevant ? or would it shorten width
00:15:17amiconnwidth > stride is simply forbidden
00:15:43amiconnI wouldn't care to check that, as it doesn't cause much trouble
00:15:50HCli don't see much problem with it, aside from it would be an odd bitmap format
00:16:05amiconnThe bitmap would look a bit odd, that's all
00:16:28amiconnIt could even make for some funny effects
00:16:30HClso it needs to check every pixel whether its the background color or not...
00:16:36HClisn't that really expensive?
00:17:00amiconnYes, and that's the optimisation I'm talking about all the time
00:17:17HCli'm curious to how you would want to optimize that...
00:18:15HClany suggestions....?
00:18:27amiconnI have some ideas
00:18:50amiconnEssentially for b&w->4-grey mapping, you need to 'expand' bits
00:19:09HClshall i just implement them with testing every pixel and setting accordingly for now?
00:19:12amiconni.e. make 2 bits out of one
00:20:36rasher WOO!
00:20:39amiconnThat can be done reasonably fast with lookup tables. Either for one whole byte (mapping to 2 bytes, and needing a 512 bytes table), or separately per nibble

00:21:35amiconnI think pixel-wise testing should be sufficient for a first version. Just check that it isn't dead-slow
00:21:51ehntoorasher: old news... it's been on the BBC site for nearly a year.
00:22:07HClamiconn: what should happen with non-monochrome bitmaps?
00:22:39amiconnNon-monochrome could be in 2 formats for a greycsale core
00:22:52amiconnNative format is trivial, just map, possibly with shift
00:23:09amiconn1 byte/pixel needs some arithmetics
00:23:16 Join XShocK [0] (
00:23:37amiconnThe 1 byte/pixel function isn't needed in the core though
00:23:42HClyea, i saw
00:24:09amiconnYes, similar to how the current b&w lcd_bitmap() implementation works
00:24:32HCli don't know how it works now, just putting it on the screen as if it was a blit?
00:24:54amiconnThat would only allow to put the bitmap on y positions divisable by 8
00:25:03HClyea, ok.
00:25:05HClbut something like that.
00:25:12amiconn(But actually that shortcut is used when this condition is met)
00:25:38amiconnFor other y positions, you simply need to shift the data
00:26:07 Quit ashridah ("Leaving")
00:26:16amiconnDid I tell you about bit wizardry? ;-)
00:26:24HCli'm thinking i should lay off this, heh.
00:26:34HClflatmates yelling around over tv isn't helping
00:27:57amiconnFor b&w, you need to bitshift the data before mapping by y % 8 ( or y & 7, which is the same)
00:28:28HCli don't understand why you would bitshift, but ok, i suck at math.
00:28:29rasherehntoo: well it's not been "coming in 2 weeks" for a year :)
00:28:56ehntoorasher: I suppose so.
00:29:00amiconnHCl: You need to bitshift because one byte corresponds to 8 pixels vertically
00:29:19amiconnIf you want to have the bitmap one pixel down, you need to shift by one bit etc
00:29:22HClyes, i know that. i'm confused to why you would need to move them at all.
00:29:31HClcan't you just set the first so many lines
00:29:40HCltill its aligned with a byte
00:29:42HClthen blit
00:29:54amiconnNo, you can't
00:29:59HClwhy not?
00:30:39HClif unaligned, set up to 7 pixel rows by hand, then its aligned and you can blit the rest..
00:31:21amiconnJust draw it on a paper, then you'll see what I mean. If you e.g. start at line 1 (counting from 0), and you set the 7 rows by hand, you have one pixel of the top row of the source bitmap 'left over'
00:31:45HCli'm not following what you mean at all x.x;
00:31:54amiconnIf you just go for blitting the following rows, this pixel row would be missing from the image
00:32:18*HCl sighs.
00:32:20HCli'll just give up then.
00:32:26HCli don't understand what you're saying whatsoever
00:32:38ehntooHCl, try it your way. If it doesn't work in a test, do it his way.
00:32:40amiconnIf it's not aligned at the top, the how can it become aligned further down?
00:32:47amiconnThe answer is - it can't
00:32:54HClamiconn: by doing the first so many lines, till its aligned.
00:33:19HClyou just do up to 7 lines by hand in a loop, then blit whats left of the image o.o..

00:33:38amiconnThat doesn't work for sure
00:33:44HClwhy not?
00:34:07amiconnWell, this is very difficult to show with text only...

11:04:53amiconnHowever, I have a question whether it would be desirable to implement an improvement that is not officially documented
11:05:23amiconnThere is that FATDIR_NTRES field, which is documented as 'don't touch' by microsoft
11:06:42amiconnI found out about 2 bits of this field
11:07:56Zagorwhat is the purpose of this field?
11:09:31soxb4gder: diff -u worked pretty good, but i want to compare the files not dependant to where they are in the structure, you think that's possible with some magic?
11:10:03amiconnWindows NT variants are able to preserve the case of filenames like FILE.TXT, FILE.txt, file.TXT and file.txt, using shortnames only
11:10:30B4gdersox: you mean without bothering about in what particular dir they are?
11:10:39amiconnAll these would be displayed as FILE.TXT in rockbox and Windos 9x; didn't test Linux
11:11:20amiconnBasically, there are 2 bits in FATDIR_NTRES that tell whether filename/ extension are lowercase
11:11:52amiconnWe could support this when reading filenames; I wouldn't do this for writing
11:12:05B4gdersox: let each find do "find . -printf '%f\n' | sort' we always write longnames anyway, and because of the 'don't touch'
11:12:22B4gderbut with dir1 and dir2 instead of .
11:12:49Zagoramiconn: I agree
11:14:39amiconnI'd say this could be supported. Currently some dirs/files look a bit ugly in rockbox (e.g. AJBREC.AJZ), because they are shortnames in WinXP. WinXP lists that as ajbrec.ajz
11:15:13Zagoryeah. i'm in favor of supporting this for reading.

13:03:49Shagnarblack one
13:04:20HCl k
13:05:00Shagnarand it works :D (just tested). got it for 53 (with porto), the lowest auction from germany was at 70
13:05:26HClhigh prices
13:05:31LinusNwhat happened to your original remote?
13:07:09HClwhy would someone steal an iriver remote o.o..
13:08:12Shagnarwas on my trousers during the physical education @ school. fortunately my H was in my bag, and they didn't look at it
13:08:32Shagnari think the thieves thought it 'd be a player
13:08:49ashridahHCl: probably because they thought it was an entire player.

13:09:04Shagnari think so, too
13:09:34preglowLinusN: libmad is fast enough to withstand being used as a proper codec now i hope?
13:09:38tvelocity[away]Shagnar, how much did you pay for it?
13:09:38ashridahlots of people seem ultra surprised when i tell them my player holds 40GB :). "in that tiny thing?!" uh. no. in this block.... "oh. an ipod is smaller than that. ick". then they find out mine now plays gb roms :)
13:09:49LinusNpreglow: i hope so
13:10:21ashridahtvelocity[away]: Shagnar and it works :D (just tested). got it for 53€ (with porto), the lowest auction from germany was at 70€
13:10:37tvelocity[away]oh i see
13:10:42ashridahhm. those symbols might not have printed properly here, so i have no idea if they printed properly for you lot :)
13:10:47tvelocity[away]53 euros? sounds expensive
13:10:56preglowi'd love to work some more on it, but my conscience doesn't allow it, heh
13:11:03HClashridah: lol.
13:11:08Lynx_for 53 euro it's worth stealing the remotes ;)
13:11:08Shagnarvery expensive, since the whole player is ~ 400 euros
13:11:45*HCl had things to add to the todolist, but forgot some..
13:11:47Shagnari ordered another one from a shop (30euros). didn't get it for over 1 month now, if i get it i'll sell it on ebay
13:11:47tvelocity[away]well, i don't want to dissapoint you, but i don't use AT ALL my remote, and i could have sent it to you for free, if I knew:P
13:12:03preglowwas it anyone here who tried to repair a h1x0 who had been damaged with the wrong charger?
13:12:40preglowi've got one of those coming in in a while, and will probably try to repair it
13:13:30HClLinusN: does rockbox on iriver keep track of passed time in total, or just the current session, and if just the current session, can we make it store the total time passed?
13:14:27B4gderpreglow: Linus has one too, afaik
13:14:55B4gderhcl: there is an internal clock that always counts
13:15:11HClB4gder: but is it session or total ?
13:15:16B4gderfor delays time-outs
13:15:27B4gderit starts on boot and counts forever
13:15:32HCli'm wanting to store the total time passed while the player is on

13:16:55LinusNHCl: we'll implement such a timer if it is needed
13:17:10LinusNpreglow: it is likely that the unit is deep fried
13:17:49ashridahlord knows why they didn't add overvoltage or overcurrent protection to it, given the common size of the jack
13:17:51preglowLinusN: what parts are affected? 'all' doesn't sound very likely
13:17:59ashridahLinusN: will it have killed the drive too?
13:18:15LinusNplugging in a charger with too high voltage will fry the capacitors that regulate the voltage to the cpu
13:18:28LinusNand the cpu will get too high voltage
13:18:36LinusNthe drive will be ok
13:18:38HClLinusN: okay, its going to get needed sooner or later for the runtime db.
13:18:57preglowso there's no voltage regulator or anything in the unit?
13:19:04LinusNthat's what i have seen on my fried player at least
13:19:14LinusNthere is a voltage regulator
13:19:29LinusNthe output voltage is controlled by said capacitors
13:19:30preglowthen why didn't that regulate? :P
13:19:50preglowoh well
13:19:54preglowi can still use it for spare parts
13:20:15ashridahpreglow: heh. mod your own player and then mod rockbox to allow two hard drives >:)
13:20:17LinusNi used mine to repair my nokia phone
13:20:25preglowheh, so i saw
13:20:47preglowi've managed to damage part of the casing around the side screw holes on mine

13:33:22t0masand windows can connect to it without extra software
13:33:24dwihnoThe setup will probably be a Linux server and a bunch of Windows clients
13:33:40t0masthen install pptpd... that's really easy

14:51:47Byronis there a lock or hold button on the archos
14:52:02ByronI put it in my pocket and then accidentally shut it off
14:52:52amiconnByron: There's a lock feature for the wps (only). It's described in the rockbox manual
14:53:42amiconnHowever, this can't protect against poweroff, because poweroff is a hardware feature
14:54:15Byronwhat's the wps?
14:54:26ByronWe Pressed Stuff?
14:54:36amiconnWhile playing screen
14:54:59Byronso no protection against accidentally stopping a recording?
14:55:53ByronI suppose that's not something that could be built in later?
14:57:55LinusNhardwarewise? sure
14:58:19LinusNyou can modify the hardware in any way you wish
14:58:48B4gderthe software too in fact ;-)
14:59:15LinusNbut the software can't protect against accidental shutoff
14:59:18Byronbut a "HOLD BUTTON" is not something that can be written into a daily update?
14:59:45LinusNByron: yes we can do that, but we can't stop the OFF key
15:00:03Byronyou have to hold down the off key for a long time don't you?
15:00:08Byronto get it to shut down?
15:00:12LinusN1 second for me
15:00:22LinusNByron: which model do you have?
15:00:33Byronfm recorder 20
15:01:10LinusNthat's another story
15:01:28LinusNthen we can add a keylock for the recording
15:01:37Byronif you made one of the buttons on the top be a "hold" button that would only go into that mode if you held it down for 3 seconds, then you could have all of the other buttons be ignored until that hold button was held in for another 3 seconds
15:02:06LinusNByron: i'm with you, that should be possible
15:02:52Byronnow for the next thing on my list... could you write my code to make my crappy headphone jack stop crackeling :-)
15:03:01LinusNof course .-)
15:03:54ByronI bought my own archos on e-bay after borrowing a friends for a month... 6 months in Byron Time, and loved it... but the one that I got has a flakey headphone jack... d'oh!
15:04:06LinusNthat can be repaired
15:04:30ByronYeah, but since I'm almost totally blind I'm not gonna make the repair myself
15:04:41Byrongoing to probably take it to a friend of mine and see what he can do.
15:04:46LinusNdo so
15:05:30ByronBTW, as far as I can tell the archos has the firmware in the flash now, can I deleate the rockbox folder on my unit?
15:05:48LinusNno, don't do that
15:05:49B4gderbyron: no, that is used
15:05:57Byronwon't do that
15:06:35Byronso when an update comes out with the new lock feature, do I need to reload the rockbox firmware into flash or can I just replace the old rockbox folder with the current one?
15:10:43preglowdepends on if it's flashed or not
15:11:02preglowis the archos mas mp3 encoder decent quality?
15:11:39ByronYes, it's been flashed
15:11:52preglowthen you will probably need to reflash it
15:12:10preglow.rockbox dir only contains fonts, plugins and such
15:12:24Byronmakes sense

15:19:50B4gderwe'll support everything people write code for
15:20:44preglowHCl: actually, it might not even be a problem, the loader part of the codecs should never require any iram, so loading another codec within the loader part of another codec should be possible

20:36:03stevenmJust checked IRC log. Saw something about preglow landing on rasher's foot
20:36:07stevenmI figured this was too good to miss
20:36:10t0masjust jokes
20:36:22amiconnYeah! FAT shortname NTRES case support is working. Adds only 80 bytes of code size :-)
20:38:11amiconnSo now the question is whether to commit all my fat.c changes, commit this part first, or hold it back for later full-commit. Zagor?

22:21:38***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
22:23:17preglowamiconn: whatever happened to your linux?
22:23:35Shagnarlittle Question: is it possible to build a rbx with the actual viewers (midi2wave, etc) AND using grayscale (jpeg-viewer) ? or just older viewers+grayscale ?
22:23:38amiconnIt's running well... occasionally
22:25:47Shagnarso you mean sometimes freezes, but no "harder" problems?
22:26:09amiconnNo, I merely mean that I don't run it often
22:26:26HClShagnar: sure its possible.
22:26:37HClShagnar: just grab the grayscale patch and apply it against current cvs.
22:26:57Shagnari've no software to build it on my machine (windows...)
22:26:59amiconnI have a laptop, running WinXP pro. For things that can be done in Linux only, I have a virtual machine running debian
22:27:24HClwell, i just updated the grayrockbox a few days ago
22:27:27HCli'm not gonna do it every day
22:27:39Shagnarwould be very very nice!
22:28:17BagderShagnar: you can build it on windows
22:28:36amiconnWhoa, gcc 4 sources uncompress to almost 200 MB
22:28:48preglowit's gotten rather large, yes
22:28:55HCl200mb of hand-typed text. heh.
22:29:02Bagderthe world's largest CVS repository they use to say
22:29:12*HCl goes to make sake
22:29:44rasherthat's crazy.. that's like 5 times the linux kernel source ^_^
22:29:50ShagnarBagder but i neet lot of software for it? .. /me doesn't know programming in C very well.. (including building the software)
22:30:22BagderShagnar: go with bluechip's devkit, its the smallest one that still builds rockbox
22:31:38amiconnMaybe I should time the build.... just started building binutils
22:32:08rasherit doesn't take very long really
22:32:39amiconnIirc the last time I tried that (gcc 3.4.x) it took a total of > 1 hour
22:32:44amiconn(binutils + gcc)
22:33:21preglowdoesn't take too long here
22:33:25preglowbut then again, this machine is pretty leet
22:34:44amiconnIt doesn't mean that my machine is slow; it's the same reason why compiling rockbox takes some 3 minutes in cygwin, but only 1 minute *on the very same machine*, *even in a virtual machine* under Linux
22:35:01amiconncygwin is dead slow when it comes to file operations
22:35:02rasheroh, you're compiling in cygwin :)
22:35:04preglowthat is kind of strange
22:35:13rasheralso when it comes to launching programs
22:35:29amiconnProbably slowest is running shell scripts
22:36:07amiconnThere is a significant delay before displaying the language choices in rockbox' /tools/configure
22:36:46preglowyes, configuring under cygwin is a nightmare
22:36:52preglowoh, how i dislike cygwin

22:39:25*t0mas is away: zzZzzZzzzzz
22:42:35*HCl wonders how much speedup gcc 4 would give on iriver.. seems fairly dated

22:47:06HCldunno if i can answer though
22:47:33msychki just got 2.4 for the recorder and was wondering why rockbox suggests "shutting down" rather than holding the off button
22:47:35 Nick Sucka`away is now known as Sucka (
22:48:35msychki mean, if i hurt the recorder, wouldnt the archos firmware and/or hardware not let you power down immediately and force you to "shut down"?
22:49:35Bagderthe safe shutdown is just that... safe
22:49:42Bagderyou don't have to
22:50:47ShagnarBagder where can i get that devkit from?
22:50:48msychki know that i dont have to and i do sometimes forget and hold the power button down, but....
22:51:31BagderShagnar: try asking google, I don't remember
22:51:32msychkwhat exactly makes it "safe"? this implies that the other way is "not safe" and somehow hurts the recorder. is that so?

22:52:16Bagdermsychk: it makes it safe because it saves data and stops the disk

23:04:52Bagderwhat would be implemented?
23:05:19Shagnarthe grayscale
23:05:55Bagderah, yes that would be nice
23:07:36HClbluechip never worked on grayscale
23:07:38HClmarkun did
