#rockbox log for 2005-07-22

00:00:44CassandraI still prefer the idea of getting bootbox to optionally ROLO a suplementary firmware (rockbox.ajz, say) is the best solution, since it solves the general problem.
00:01:06amiconnCassandra: I *know* the reason for the crashes with gcc 3.3.x and -O2 or -Os. It's clearly a gcc bug.
00:01:23amiconnCassandra: It doesn't solve the general problem
00:01:35amiconnThere are unflashable boxes
00:01:50CassandraBut you could load bootbox from disk.
00:02:06amiconnThat would be cumbersome...
00:02:10CassandraInstall bootbox as your ajbrec.ajz / archos.mod then use it to boot your *real* Rockbox.
00:02:20CassandraWell yes, but it'd work.
00:02:53amiconn...and I wouldn't want that. We should really try to cut down rockbox code size. Rockbox isn't windows...
00:03:46CassandraLike I say, no matter how much we snip, we'll hit the 200k barrier eventually.
00:03:50amiconnRemember that our RAM isn't endless as well...
00:03:57CassandraJust like we did with Rombox.
00:04:30 Quit west-acre ("I-n-v-i-s-i-o-n 2.0 Build 3515")
00:04:48amiconnRombox will come back, better than ever, for all units
00:05:41CassandraNot everyone'll want a firmware without a backup Archos ROM.
00:05:54CassandraMe, I couldn't give a monkeys, but ...
00:05:57uskii'll do, as long as there will be the minimon ;)
00:06:08uskithink of people without a flashable box
00:06:18[IDC]Dragonthere's minimon and bootbox
00:06:37 Quit Coldtoast (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
00:06:38uskibut minimon is easier to use
00:06:45*[IDC]Dragon says goodnight
00:06:54amiconnThe problem with rombox is that the limit is lower than the 200 KB disk-loading limit for most units
00:06:54uskithere would even be a possibility to do a blind flashing through minimon
00:07:02amiconn(in fact all except the player)
00:07:04uskii.e. you first send a checksum, then the data
00:07:10uskithe data is copied to RAM by minimom
00:07:17CassandraI am doing. That's why I think bootbox should be able to chainload a full featured Rockbox.
00:07:17uskiwhich checks the checksum
00:07:25uskiand if the checksum is OK, data is flashed
00:07:30uskithis way, no need for any modification
00:07:36uskieverything can be done through the remote port
00:07:44CassandraThere's nothing to stop non-flashable users installing bootbox as their archos.mod.
00:07:50uskieven inexperienced users could do an emergency flashing
00:08:06amiconnIt requires the serial mod
00:08:25amiconnI think not many users are able to do that
00:08:37 Quit [IDC]Dragon (" HydraIRC -> <- \o/")
00:08:46CassandraI agree with ami. Taking units apart is Doom(TM)
00:08:55uskinope amiconn
00:08:59uskiminicon could read data from the remote port
00:09:05uskiwhere there is a RX pin
00:09:08uskino need to do any mod
00:09:12amiconnNot all archoses have a remote port
00:09:15uskiwith my idea, no need to receive data from the box
00:09:16uskireally ???
00:09:24amiconnIn fact only the recorder v1 and the player have them
00:09:29uskioh... ok
00:09:33amiconnThe FM, the V2 and the ondios do not
00:09:37uskiwhat a pity
00:10:05amiconnThat's what bootbox is for
00:10:13uskiwhat is it ? o:)
00:10:19amiconnBootbox is the minimal backup rockbox
00:10:50uskiim quite confused: minimon, rockbox, rombox, bootbox...
00:10:55uskii know what minimon is
00:10:56amiconn...only able to handle USB, boot an .ajz, and handle charging on software charging platforms (recorder v1)
00:11:02uskibut rombox/bootbox.. .?
00:11:06uskiwhat's the difference ?
00:11:22amiconnRombox means rockbox running directly from ROM, without decompressing it to RAM first
00:11:46amiconnThat saves the RAM normally needed for the code and read-only data
00:11:53uskiyea; i tried to install it to my box this adfternoon, but in the daily builds there was not a rombox.ucl file
00:12:18amiconnYes, that's because rockbox grew too large to allow rombox on most units
00:12:31amiconnOnly the Ondio SP and the player still have rombox
00:13:06uskii would be ok to remove the backup archos firmware from my box anyway
00:13:09amiconnThat's why [IDC]Dragon developed bootbox. It is intended to replace the archos image as a backup in the flash packages
00:13:28uskiok! it's getting more clear
00:13:35amiconnBootbox is smaller than the archos firmware, leaving enough room for rombox, on all units
00:13:50uskithanks for the clear explanations
00:14:39amiconnWe're not giving up our safety net with bootbox, that's the point
00:15:14*amiconn just turned 0x22
00:15:51uskiwhat do you mean ? (0x22)
00:15:56Stryke`34 in hex
00:16:33uskibut what does it mean ?
00:16:54CassandraHmm. ami, I can't see anywhere for the small screws near the usb socket on the player to attach to other than the little bit of circuit board with the battery contacts on. Is this correct?
00:17:58amiconnCassandra: yes.
00:18:01amiconnuski: years
00:18:12CassandraOK. Good.

01:00:03webguest93does the battery fits into a h140
01:00:06webguest55That should work, I believe
01:00:23webguest93i heard i have to change the polarity ?
01:00:44webguest55Yes, HCl and markun (and possibly others) have done it

01:39:30meep|zorkquick question
01:40:25meep|zorki have all my music organized by folders titled by album
01:41:06***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
01:41:16meep|zorkhow do i get rockbox to move on to the next folder when its finished with the last track in the current folder? right now it just goes back to the 1st track in the folder
01:41:17ashridahmeep|zork: you haven't had any problems since flashing with the rockbox bootloader have you?
01:41:29ashridahmeep|zork: you need to add it to the playlist
01:41:36meep|zorkno everything has been great
01:41:45meep|zorkoh bummer
01:41:47ashridahrockbox deals exclusively with playlists, and by default, creates a playlist out of the current directory when you hit 'play'
01:41:54meep|zorkso i have to make a playlist of everything
01:42:25ashridahwell, it starts doing that automatically. just go to the next directory, and hold down the navigation stick on it, and then add the directory that way.
01:43:37meep|zorkoh wow, on the fly play lists
01:43:47meep|zorki can still make a playlist in winamp right?

01:44:45ashridahuh. i'm not sure, on that point

01:45:35BippyHello my beautiful people
01:46:15BippyThere just one question, are you feeling lucky punks
01:46:21Bippyhuh well are ya
01:46:40Bippyon a more serious note, has radio been implemented yet ?

01:48:05ashridahmeep|zork: yeah. just make sure you're in the root of your music collection, click a-b, then go to playlist and create playlist. as long as recurse directories is turned on, it should create a playlist with all of your music
01:48:25ashridahBippy: on the iriver? not yet, that i know of. i don't think anyone's really been looking at it yet
01:48:52 Join DarkkOne [0] (
01:49:45Bippyok cheers fella
01:53:20DarkkOneDo you know anything about the WPSes, by chance?
01:54:23DarkkOnefor the %fc tag, do you know if anything other than FLAC is four characters?
01:55:08DarkkOneIt's been driving me nuts that it shifts everything after it every time a flac shows up in my playlist, and I've been trying to figure how I'm going to work around it.
01:55:22meep|zorkok im gonna try that
01:55:46Bippyim having the same problem
01:55:49 Quit hicks (Remote closed the connection)
01:56:27Bippyi put it down to poor programming
01:56:49DarkkOneI wouldn't necessarily say poor programming.
01:56:53DarkkOneAlot of people don't use FLACs
01:57:00DarkkOneAnd I think every other format's 3-character
01:57:25DarkkOneI figure the easy way would be to say "All codec names are to be 5-characters or less" then for like, MP3 make it _MP3_ (except use real spaces) and such.
01:57:28webguest55meep|zork: there's an option "move to next folder" somewhere
01:58:07DarkkOneThat would mean the %fc tag would always represent a 5-character entry. (or 4, or whatever you defined it as)
01:58:30webguest55Sounds dodgy.
01:58:52DarkkOneA bit.
01:59:40DarkkOneBut the way I figure, for the WPSes to work will with bitmaps, you almost *need* to be able to define either a screen position (instead of offsetting with spaces) for text, or you need the tags to represent fixed-width entries.
01:59:58DarkkOne4 characters for codec, 5 characters including K for bitrate, etc. Something like that.
02:00:22amiconnA fixed character count wouldn't help at all
02:00:34webguest55proportional fonts ruin that anyway
02:00:45webguest55"MP3" is not as wide as "WAV"
02:00:45amiconnyes, exactly
02:00:47webguest55(likely not)
02:01:02DarkkOneYeah, but proportional fonts don't work well for Bitmap using WPSes anyway.
02:01:20webguest55Just offset it using spaces
02:01:25webguest55and alignment tags
02:01:36webguest55someone should get in the multiple-alignment-tags patch
02:01:43DarkkOneThat'd probably help alot
02:02:00amiconnSomeone should redo this the proper way, from the ground up
02:02:13DarkkOneI just noticed it going all funky with the JamesGao WPS, once I got it working. (Didn't realize the .bmp had to be in the .rockbox folder)
02:02:14webguest55"this"? "the proper way"?
02:02:30amiconnMeaning, the wps should allow pixel positioning, but that requires some more low-level work first
02:02:59DarkkOneWell the WPS is a decent amount holdover code, right?
02:03:12*webguest55 creates a wishlist.. pixel positioning, multiple fonts, more advanced conditionals
02:03:15amiconnThe text scrolling functions need to work with boxes instead of line-based
02:03:23webguest55and that
02:03:24*DarkkOne suggests adding simple primitives to the wishlist.
02:03:45DarkkOneYeah, the text shouldn't scroll past where the text started. Hehehe.
02:03:46amiconnI might work a bit in that area one day, but it's not exactly high priority for me
02:04:03*amiconn still uses the default wps
02:04:14amiconnI like it plain & simple
02:04:16DarkkOneI rather like the JamesGao one.
02:04:26DarkkOneThough it does have a little more than I need.
02:04:27*webguest55 proposes using %sXX for defining width of box
02:04:47webguest55except that'd be horrible
02:05:02amiconnThis will have to change completely
02:05:22amiconnThe *positioning* has to be pixel based too, not line based
02:05:23DarkkOneAre the codec names simply strings somewhere in the WPS handling portion, or do they come from the codecs themselves?
02:05:45DarkkOneLike, if I were to want to customize my build, since I use fixed width, so they're all 4 characters, where would you suggest looking?
02:07:33 Quit meep|zork ("-=SysReset 2.53=-")
02:07:42amiconnThe scrolling functions need some work anyway; there is a flaw that just didn't show up yet, as no code tries to use multiple shades of grey at once
02:08:04amiconn...for text
02:08:13DarkkOneWhat happens?
02:09:23amiconnIf some code actually sets a different foreground or background shade, the scrolling text will also get these shades, even if it was already there before changing the shades
02:09:49amiconnThat's because the scrolling text structures don't store the currently active shades
02:11:35DarkkOneSo the text color gets changed to the new values, rather than keeping its own?
02:13:21amiconnThis happens for scrolling text only, fixed text isn't affected
02:14:08*amiconn goes to sleep

02:34:22DarkkOneAre the codecs *just* encode/decode information?
02:35:12ashridahthings like .ogg and .wma tend to be containers, so often the codec supports dealing with the container as well
02:35:18webguest55what else would they be?
02:35:25ashridahs/tend to be/are containers/
02:35:42ashridah.wma is really just a renamed .asf
02:35:46DarkkOneWell, I was trying to figure out where the strings that get displayed for the %fc come from.
02:36:43DarkkOneAs well, I was curious about the handling of containers like ogg.
02:38:00webguest55ogg is assumed to be ogg/vorbis right now
02:38:08webguest55the strings come from the playback code somewhere.. grep for "FLAC" in apps/
02:38:14webguest55(I believe)
02:39:37DarkkOneSo, codecs don't have file-extension information or anything.
02:39:50DarkkOneflacs are recognized as music even when the flac codec is missing.
02:41:12DarkkOneSorry, just trying to figure out how things are layed out.

02:59:42webguest55I don't see why. Wouldn't want to open mp3 files with vorbis.codec
03:00:05webguest55well unless someone creates alternative codecs
03:00:56DarkkOneAs well, if someone say, builds a working MOD codec or whatever, to add support you have to rebuild several other files.
03:01:21DarkkOneIf the .codec + a necessary line in a .config could hold the information, why shouldn't it?
03:01:27DarkkOneThat's saying *if*
03:01:38DarkkOneI don't know enough about everything yet, I'm still trying to swim back up to the surface
03:02:22DarkkOneI just seem to remember reading they were supposed to be like plugins.
03:07:08DarkkOneLooking at the multicodec architecture wiki page I see no mention of it, so I'm probably just confused.
03:10:13webguest55Well sure, if that happens, eventually it could be done fairly easily I believe
03:10:24webguest55but there's been little reason to bother with it so far
03:10:54webguest55Also, non-streaming codecs are far from around the corner
03:11:28DarkkOneI was just wondering if there's a practical reason for having what audio filetypes are supported hard-coded.

03:30:19webguest55Don't think so
03:31:10webguest55there's just been no reason to code up a configuration file system yet
03:31:29DarkkOneWell, I mean alot of it's already there with the "viewers"
03:31:39DarkkOneAlot of what I'm thinking of at least
03:32:25DarkkOneI dunno. I'm thinking it seems like something I could work around coding, the problem being I wouldn't want to if it ends up being something they wouldn't want one day.

12:12:23MoosHi Linus: still a new bootloader coming soon (v5)?
12:13:15LinusNreleasing it as we speak
12:13:49Moosbug fixing?
12:14:06Mooslight during usb mode...?
12:15:30Moosi've a little question about the shuting down, if you have few seconds :)
12:15:42SlasheriHmm, tomorrow is my last day.. then a month away :/
12:15:48LinusNMoos: shoot
12:15:56MoosHi Slasheri
12:15:59LinusNSlasheri: have fun! :-)
12:16:18SlasheriLinusN: thanks, have you too :)
12:17:05Slasherihi crwl and Moos :)
12:17:13crwli discovered a crash bug yesterday at work, let's see if it's still there
12:17:13MoosLinus: I remenber few weeks ago, when we wanted to stop the player, it shtuded down immediatly when pressed long stop
12:17:15crwlhi slasheri:)
12:17:45crwloops, didn't read the cvs changelog and lost my settings, oh well :)
12:17:52MoosLinus: but since few weeks it don't stop instantatly, it take few seconds
12:18:31MoosLinus: this behaviour will it be the normal in the future, or bug?
12:18:36LinusNMoos: you mean before the "Shutting down" text appears?
12:18:55Moosi mean the reaction time :)
12:19:17Moosimmediatly before few weeks and fews seconds now
12:19:24Moosnormal behaviour?
12:19:44Moosor possibility to decrease this time?
12:19:45LinusNthe problem is that the runtime database is synched to disk before the "shutting down" text appears
12:19:57LinusNso the reaction time seems slower
12:20:11Moosa ok
12:20:29amiconnMaybe this is also due to the handler-controlled shutdown
12:21:03amiconnBtw, I experienced a bad effect caused by that on my iriver
12:21:11Moosand the future works of HCl can improve this?
12:21:11LinusNwell, the problem is that the handler callback syncs the database
12:21:24 Join hicks [0] (
12:21:26amiconnThe battery was almost empty, and the iriver tried to shut down
12:21:27Slasheribtw, i hope the iriver could do the shutdown the "same way" as on original firmware: don't stop playback before actually doing the shutdown. That way user knows when he/she can release the stop button
12:22:07amiconnThat lead to a spinup of the HD, but the HD was unable to save the settings. Spinup - spindown - spinup - spindown ....
12:22:17LinusNamiconn: yes, that's another problem
12:22:24amiconn...for quite a while, until it was finally able to save settings
12:22:35crwlok, the crash bug is no longer there :)
12:22:44LinusNthe crash bug?
12:23:32amiconnI'd suggest that the shutdown should be force after some delay, regardless whether the handler returned or not
12:23:45crwlwell, a version from CVS about 24 hours ago crashed if you changed track from filebrowser while playback was paused and then pressed stop, i think
12:23:50Moosamiconn: i have experimented this problem too, with very low power
12:23:58crwlbut it does that no longer, it seems
12:24:07amiconnOf course this delay should be long enough to allow 'typical' shutdown operations to complete
12:24:41amiconnI think about 5...10 seconds should be enough
12:25:31amiconnOtherwise we might have a shutdwon problem on iriver, as the iriver can't be forced to shutdown by hardware...
12:25:49Moosit would be fun to have a windows "shutin down", currently the browser or WPS screen stay fews ms or sec before "shuttin down" text
12:27:47Moosi remenber before the HCl works it was instantaneous, is it a dream to think it will be the same in the future?

12:36:45HClit might very well be caused by that it has to write the rundb cache to disk before shutting down

12:43:33ashridahuski: perhaps it does, but its binding of ctrl-w to 'close tab' sure as hell doesn't.
12:44:07crwlashridah, say no more!
12:44:21crwlthat's reason #1 why i dislike xchat :P
12:44:40ashridahthe problem i have is that i don't really like any of the alternatives
12:44:48ashridahthe kde irc apps all seem to bite in some fashion
12:45:16Lynx_ashridah: irssi?
12:46:14crwli wonder if xchat's ctrl-w behaviour could be changed with some general gtk2 setting that changes the text field key shortcuts
12:46:17crwlif there's one
12:47:03ashridahcrwl: well, once upon a time, gtk apps used to be able to have their menu/key bindings remapped (of course, many applications failed to save said bindings and reinitialised them from the app's defaults if restarted), but it doesn't seem to work anymore
12:48:00crwlashridah, yes, i remember... (not very many applications remembered to save the bindings, though)
12:48:26crwlgtk2 sucks :P
12:49:04ashridahindeed. i'm really REALLY over the whole gnome2 'lets get rid of all the useful stuff that newbies don't know or care about' efforts.
12:49:14ashridahi can see why making preferences simpler is good
12:49:23ashridahbut removing the features COMPLETELY is just silly
12:49:49ashridahafter all, gconf is precisely the kind of 'tweakui' type utility you could use, and they AREN'T
12:50:16*ashridah is just bitter because kde 3.4.1 is currently not usable in debian unstable due to the gcc 4 upgrade :)
12:50:23crwlwell, here in ubuntu it seems to work ;)
12:50:47Moostime to flash v5 thanks Linus :)
12:52:35ashridahcrwl: ubuntu have already done their upgrade, and ubuntu focuses on gnome anyway, which is largely C
12:54:12LinusNMoos: enjoy
12:54:18crwlashridah, it's sad that ubuntu focuses on gnome, but luckily kde works too :P
12:54:23crwlbetter than on debian, it seems...
12:54:59ashridahcrwl: again, c++ abi upgrade. not a lot one can do. ubuntu's development branch was probably just as broken during their transition
12:55:05ashridahdebian's is a bit later due to the release of sarge
12:55:32crwlcan't remember that, i've been using the breezy development branch since hoary was released
12:55:43crwlthough there has been something from day to day, but everything's been fixed the next day
12:57:05ashridahyeah, well, debian's got a few more packages, and a lot more targets to worry about. slows things down somewhat

16:38:08webguest91Hey, I saw in the logs that the longer shutdown time is because of the runtime-db being synced.. would it be difficult to display the splash before doing that? To give a quicker feedback. Won't change the time it takes, but it'll change the time the user thinks "wtf, I'm pressing the button and nothing happens!"
16:47:13LearHm... Similar to autobookmarking actually, especially with fade on stop enabled. The time it takes from I press top until the "Bookmark created" splash is shown is pretty long.
16:47:48LearOne way to speed things up could be to spin up the drive (if autobookmarking is on) before starting the fade.

17:28:38]RowaN[but it feels right =]
17:28:42CassandraNot to me.
17:28:46rooomish2amiconn: no I have it made from Mobile phone cable and I know which wire is transmitting (TX?)
17:29:03amiconn]RowaN[: You can move the input cursor in the virtual keyboard, so you can insert letters without first deleting all letters after them
17:29:21amiconnThis wasn't possible on iriver because of the assignment. Now it is
17:29:36amiconnHold PLAY, then move the joystick left or right
17:30:37]RowaN[ive never really dabbled with playlists and such.. if im playing a song, and i want to encue the next song to play after the current one finishes, is there a way to do it? (on the fly playlist?)
17:30:39amiconnPLAY now doesn't immediately accept the input, it only does this when you press & release it in direct sequence, i.e. without holding it for a while or using other buttons while pressing it
17:31:39rooomish2amiconn: better to say - no I made it from Mobile phone cable and I know which wire is transmitting (oscilloscope) this wire will I connect to RxD correct?
17:31:42amiconnrooomish2: If you know where the data comes out of your converter, this output must then be connected to archos Rx and vice versa
17:32:47LearSlasheri, what about having options like "off, crossfade type 1, crossfade type 2"?
17:33:15 Join Psy-Dead1 [0] (
17:33:16SlasheriLear: Hmm, maybe. Then we just need to add "Crossfade amount/length" variable
17:33:29Slasheriso anyway we need two options..
17:34:04Slasheriunless we change that crossfade amount to "PCM Buffer Length"
17:34:28amiconnI don't think this is a good idea
17:35:01rooomish2amiconn: thanks
17:35:27Slasheriamiconn: Hmm, do you think that "Crossfade type" would be ok?
17:35:36CassandraYou know those crossfade options are proliferating rather nastily.
17:36:03amiconnCassandra: Full ack ;)
17:36:19amiconnSlasheri: I think PCM Buffer length is too technical
17:36:34Slasheriah, hmm..
17:36:45Psy-Dead1"playback buffer"
17:38:39Slasheriamiconn: and if we change that to something like "Audio buffer length", then users wouldn't know it will also set the crossfade length..
17:39:54amiconnYes, and that why setting the crossfade duration as "Crossfade duration" is imho the least confusing solution
17:40:58Slasherihmm.. would it be good to make two options: "Crossfade" with selections "Off,Crossfade,Mix only" and "Crossfade duration"?
17:42:19amiconnI think that would be more logical than implying crossfade == off with duration == 0
17:42:30Slasheriyes, good :)
17:42:48amiconn..and it would free one option for the duration, as it wouldn't be necessary to include the 0
17:43:03Slasheriand would you prefer "Crossfade,Mix only" or just "Type 1,Type 2"?
17:43:27amiconnCrossfade, Mix

17:51:42]RowaN[ what do you guys think of having seperate crossfade modes for (a) when the song reaches the end of track (fine as it is) but then (b) different crossfade for when you "skip" to the next track - rather than crossfading (yukky clashing of unsyncopated beats), it'd sound better (in my experience) for the current track to fade out rather rapidly (1sec) while the next track starts immediately (starts, not fades in). Might be hard to imagine but its very pleasing
17:52:44SlasheriHmm.. maybe we should add a whole new configuration menu for crossfade :D
17:52:50]RowaN[please =]
17:52:55Slasherithat is possible to implement..
17:53:59amiconnCrossfade sounds best when it is switched off - my $0.02 ... ;)

17:55:23]RowaN[amiconn i predict you will wonder how you lived without it if the method i describe above gets implemented =]
17:56:22]RowaN[its no different to the old fashioned track skip, except the current song fades out in like, 500ms or something, instead of abruptly stopping (not easy on the ears/brain)
17:56:45amiconnI always switch of any kind of audio fading in any player. I cannot stand it
17:57:12amiconnWe have fade out on stop on the archos, that's one of the first things I switched off
17:58:37amiconnI prefer true gapless for the track transition (which works fine now on iriver too), that's it
17:59:45Slasheriit depends on what kind of music you are listening to.. it tracks are not true gapless, then i will prefer crossfading :)
18:00:27amiconnIf the tracks aren't gapless the y have an intentional gap instead, which I don't want to suppress
18:00:48amiconn...and they fade out/in by themselves
18:01:18]RowaN[yes at the ends of songs, but im talking about fading in the middle of a song when you skip
18:01:59amiconnYes, then you'll still have a pause (because of the playback restart at different position)
18:02:16]RowaN[a pause?
18:02:36]RowaN[song 1 fades while song 2 starts... whats pausing?
18:02:48amiconnWithout fading...
18:03:06]RowaN[oh i thought we were talking about crossfading =]
18:04:37*amiconn should read more thoroughly
18:05:00amiconnYou mean, the setting should be separate from the normal fade...
18:05:26]RowaN[seperate from the end of track fade into next track fade yes
18:05:37]RowaN[i.e. the fade that happens when you manually skip
18:05:45amiconnI don't think that would need a separate (in the sense of 'new') setting, imho it falls into the category of 'fade on stop/pause'
18:05:58SlasheriHmm, i think we would need at first two type of crossfade configuration displays (with the same options): when crossfading automatically and when just skipping.. :/
18:06:01amiconnI still wouldn't activate it though...
18:06:41]RowaN[at least try it for 10 seconds before you dismiss it for the rest of your life man
18:07:56]RowaN[Slasheri do it do it =p

18:22:37west-acrenot sure, it needs a function tho, maybe errr lemme think...
18:23:48webguest73Catering for a specific browser is stupid no matter how you look at it. Following standards is the only sensible choice.
18:23:55 Part Psy-Dead1
18:24:16]RowaN[writing-mode is w3c recommended
18:24:34webguest73Where is it defined?

18:25:56amiconn..because the text then runs as it says - top to bottom, right to left
18:26:00]RowaN[webguest73: the great thing about standards is that theres so many to choose from
18:26:07amiconnYOu need an additional flip

18:29:49amiconnHaha, the "examples" are images...
18:30:17webguest73They'd have to be.. presumably when it was made no browser supported it
18:30:32webguest73Also, you need a reference
18:31:01webguest73I'm curious, is css3 really the curren w3c recommendation?
18:31:19amiconnYes, but I would do such a page with a side-by-side comparison of an image and the actual interpretation by the browser
18:31:59webguest73Ah, it is not. It's not even finished yet.
18:32:19webguest73Well, that'd be in the test suite I guess
18:32:55webguest73Also, I'm curious which versions of IE supports it. Which is where the real fun begins.
18:34:13amiconnAha, it does work in IE 6, but not in Firefox 1.04
18:35:10amiconnwebguest73: From what I read IE 5.5+ supports this
18:35:23godzirraSlasheri: how's it going? :)
18:35:29webguest73Well, it's admireable, but you can't really fault anyone for not implementing a standard that's not even finished yet

20:52:05Slasheriat least the coldfire cpu's are available ~26e
20:52:31Slasherithe resoldering would be _difficult_ but not impossible
20:52:55BBubhow could you "burn" the cpu?
20:52:59DarkkOneIf your tools are good enough, your hands steady enough, why not?
20:53:03SlasheriBBub: with wrong charger
20:53:09BBubah, k
20:53:12Slasherifortunately i haven't tried that, but many people have..
20:53:40BBubis it really so hard to read the description on the iriver-charger? ;)
20:53:47BBubi dont get why ppl plug anything in that fits
20:53:50SlasheriDarkkOne: yep, i might try that one day if i get a burned unit to my hands ;)
20:53:53DarkkOnePeople often miss the positive/negative thing.
20:53:57amiconnSlasheri: How do you solder a BGA? Do you have special equipment?
20:54:19Slasheriamiconn: some equipments yes.. but basically high temperature is required for that..
20:54:37amiconnYes, but not too high/ too long...
20:54:39DarkkOneBBub: Many people seem to assume that the plug size is representative of some sort of standardization.
20:54:41uskiBGA ? the hardest thing is to put them in the right position
20:54:51uskithen you need something like a hot air soldering station
20:55:17 Join ]RowaN[ [0] (
20:55:31uskiusually, there are specialized equipements for BGA packages, that does the positionning and the soldering at once
20:55:40Slasherii know that tqfp packages are hard to solder but never tried bga.. maybe i should try that one day :)
20:56:30DarkkOneIf the unit's already dead you're only out the cost of additional materials anyway.
20:57:07Slasheriyep.. but at least i will try that if my unit ever breaks :)
20:57:29amiconn160 pin MAP BGA...
20:58:46uskii already have soldered a TQFP package using a hot air soldering station; even with this it is really tricky

20:59:26uski_<uski> i already have soldered a TQFP package using a hot air soldering station; even with this it is really tricky
20:59:26uski_<uski> why do you need to solder such packages ?
20:59:26amiconnI think TQFP is way easier than BGA...

20:59:28uski_what do i have missed ?
20:59:29Slasheriuski: hehe, i have soldered a TQFP once with a microscope and a very thin soldering tip
20:59:37uski_oh yes, TQFP is way easier than BGA !
20:59:41Slasherithe position was the hardest part
20:59:53 Quit uski (Nick collision from services.)
20:59:56 Nick uski_ is now known as uski (uski@
20:59:56DBUGEnqueued KICK uski
21:00:27Slasheribut with bga you will only have to position it once and pray ;) there should be some markings on the pcb to do that..
21:00:42Slasheriand it might be even easier that with tqfp
21:01:30 Nick CheeseBurgerMan is now known as CBM-away (
21:02:17uskislasheri, you have to maintain the BGA while soldering
21:02:18lodesilittle question.. is there a way to debug a plugin on the mp3 player?
21:02:57lodesii mean not in the simulator :)
21:03:15Slasheriuski: yes, i can use some tools and paste to keep it in place while applying hot air
21:03:15 Nick Lear_away is now known as Lear (
21:03:21uskiSlasheri: and you can't do that with some glue
21:03:32Learlogf is one way (if it is in the api)...
21:03:59uskihow ? remember that there are balls undeer the BGA everywhere
21:04:04uskii don't see how you can use paste
21:04:57lodesiLear: mmh.. the logf is for me?
21:05:06Learyep. :)
21:05:34lodesiaccording to a 'man logf' it's 'natural logarithmic fuction' ?!?? :/
21:05:48lodesido i misssomething ?
21:05:49Slasherihmm, i meant using some paste to the pads that is meant for that.. i just think it's possible to do the cpu replacement :)
21:05:57LearI'm talking about logf in rockbox, a logging facility...
21:06:16Leara bit unfortunate name name, yes...
21:06:30uskiSlasheri, it's for an iRiver right ?
21:06:37uskido you have a picture somewhere of the PCB ?
21:07:09lodesiit might be in the api, it's inside an ifdef
21:07:23Slasheriuski: yep, it's just hard but possible to do as there are the cpus available
21:07:24lodesii'll look, thx!
21:07:40Slasheriuski: hmm, rockbox sites may have some pictures
21:07:46Learyes, not enabled by default. You need to enable a define in autoconf.h
21:07:51uskiSlasheri, i agree, i think it is possible; but do that only if there is not any other solution ;)
21:08:03Slasherihehe, of course ;)
21:08:11lodesiok.. what does it do ? :)
21:08:32lodesi(the logf)
21:09:50Learlodesi: it keeps a number of recent messages, viewable through the menues. It is also shown on the iriver remote (if you have one).
21:10:29Learsimilar to debugf, but easily viewable on target without special hardware needed.
21:10:56lodesiit's concatenated in a file?
21:11:28uskii think it's like a circular bugffer, maybe like linux's dmesg
21:11:33lodesi'cause i have an archos recorder and my plugin crash the unit... :(
21:11:38Learlodesi: but by default, but you can dump it to a file.
21:11:57Learlodesi: well, for crashes it doesn't help much...
21:12:03uskilodesi, remember that there is no memory protection in the archos; you can write everything everywhere
21:12:23uskiit won't say "Segmentation fault at 0x........"
21:12:37uskihmm i think there is a gdb stub for the SH1
21:12:42uskiif you want you can do the serial mod
21:12:48lodesiuski: yes, but i actually have the plugin running on the sim.. so i need to see on target
21:12:50uskithen use this stub to run gdb
21:13:20uskiif you can do the serial mod, this is the way to go i think
21:13:47lodesii'll first,with the file logging :)
21:14:50uskiyou could also change the status of the red led
21:15:01uskiit might help, but i don't know if the red led can be accessed directly from plugins (i think so) plugin crash and gives a blinking red led, without any response :)
21:16:13uskiblinking red led ? interesting
21:16:21uskii think that panic() does that
21:16:23 Quit DarkkOne ("Chatzilla [Firefox 1.0.6/20050716]")
21:17:02Hansmaulwurfis there really a panic function?
21:17:08Hansmaulwurfhow can i activate it?
21:18:55uskii think there is one :) let me check :)
21:19:02uskii think you siply call it
21:19:11uskiit must be in system.c or maybe there is even a panic.c
21:19:17uskilemme checlk
21:20:15uski(56k is slow, and i need to download the code - if someone using linux could do "egrep -r panic *" on the source tree it would help :))
21:21:22LearYes, panic.c contains something called panicf()...
21:21:52uskiyea !
21:22:02uskiand if you look the code, you'll see that it makes the led blink
21:22:12uskiit should even display sth on the screen... ?
21:22:22LearUsually called when something has gone horribly wrong, and there's no way to recover. FUBAR, if you like...
21:22:39LearYes, some error description...
21:22:50uskilodesi, what are the symptoms of the crash ? is there something appearing on the screen ?
21:23:03uskii'd guess that you are writing on the memory somewhere you are not supposed to write
21:23:08lodesinop, blank screen an rl blinking
21:23:32lodesiand i have to turn it off to make it react...
21:23:39uskido a "reverse search" : look for the function that makes the led blink, and look for every place in the code that calls it
21:23:50uskiyes it is normal, the loop that make the led blink is infinite
21:24:44lodesibad idea.. their could many place where it could called from
21:24:50uskii don't think so
21:25:11lodesiok, trying that then :)
21:25:16uskias Lear said, a panic is an "extreme" situation
21:25:53uskibtw, are you sure that you are compiling your plugin correctly ?
21:26:14uskimaybe that the CPU tries to execute "garbage" and raises a "unknown instruction" trap
21:26:15lodesiyes, i can display some msg with rb->splash(..)
21:26:28uskithen try debugging with this
21:26:46uski"instr 1 ok", "instr 2 ok", "instr 3 result 42", "inst 4 ok", BoOM
21:27:04uskior maybe "instr 1 ok", "zfifdvojfzef<G234'(-"é", BooM :)
21:27:30lodesiyep i'm redifing the DEBUGF to a splash()
21:27:58lodesisilly keyboard..
21:28:46uski"bad keyboard ==> change the keyboard" :)
21:29:52lodesiit's planned,because he didn't like the coffee i gave him last week :/
21:36:04uskidamn, i would love to do the 8MB mod for my unit, but last time i tried to do sth it didn't turn very well...
21:37:58lodesino's crashing quiet early
21:40:48Learhm.. do you set the global api pointer properly? :)
21:41:02SlasheriHmm, maybe you are using the wrong .rock on your player?
21:41:37lodesithose stuff are just copy/paste from rockboy, so they should be ok
21:42:00lodesibut i was wondering what is the directory separator '\\' or '/' ?
21:42:15Learits '/'
21:42:29Learwell, start your plugin like this:
21:42:41Learrb = api;
21:43:07Learthen not much can go wrong before you see something. :)
21:43:09lodesiall of this works :)
21:46:07lodesiit's weird, the first lines of panic.c display a debugging msg.. but i don't see anything :(
21:50:53Leardo you know your code causes a panic?
21:51:30lodesii'm not sure.. but there is the red led
21:52:36uskilodesi,maybe that's because you are writing garbage into the rockbox's memory space
21:52:44uskipreventing it from writing anything to the display after it
21:53:39lodesii think that's true..
21:54:00uskidouble check your code
21:54:08uskisee if you aren't doing a mistake with a pointer or sth like that
21:54:16lodesibut my plugin is the port of a linux program, so i have to deal with 15000 line of code :(
21:54:29uskiyou said it crashes very early, then check the beginning of your code
21:54:33uskiwhich program ? :)
21:54:50lodesii'm checking the begining
21:55:10***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
21:55:38uskifun !
21:55:48uskigood luck for your port...
21:57:02lodesihehe, the graph were crap on those game,so it's like we are limited with the small display :)
21:57:03Leardifficult to make it look good, unless you have an h300 or something, I would imagine... :)
21:57:45Learwasn't those games basically text adventures??
21:57:46lodesiit's not like*
21:57:57Learor did you mainly use your mouse...
21:58:35lodesiyes, when you can say 'look room',and it explains what is displayed on the screen :)
21:58:50lodesithere is no mouse support
21:59:35 Quit RotAtoR ()

22:09:38Cka3kagive me a sec
22:09:41XavierGrCka3ka use the reset button. Maybe you are not pressing it hard. Are you sure it is broken?
22:09:59Cka3kayeah like the paper clip goes through into the mp3player
22:10:04Cka3kafar enough where its dangerous
22:10:16LinusNCka3ka: then the clip is too thin
22:10:27LinusNand you miss the button
22:10:30XavierGryeah try something more thick.
22:10:50Cka3kaits pretty thick
22:10:54LinusNit should barely fit in the hole

22:17:05XavierGrscandisk at least
22:17:18LinusNthen you have learned a lesson
22:17:30webguest80Just one quick question all (or maybe 2!) - Is there anywhere that I can see a basic update of stuff that's happening on the iRiver. I'm not so smart and the CVS info is a little confusing to me
22:17:47LinusNwebguest80: not really
22:18:04LinusNthere is a "cooked" thread at misticriver
22:18:08Cka3kaso what does this error msg that i have mean?
22:18:23LinusNCka3ka: it means that rockbox couldn't mount the file system
22:18:25Cka3ka*panic* mount:0
22:18:26DarkkOneThe front page on tells the latest changelog. You can usually guess from what seems to get updated/worked on the most.
22:18:27webguest80Okay - Hmm, I'm just trying to figure out when to upgrade and what changes are implemented there so I can enjoy them test out and do my best to report back! :D
22:18:44Cka3kai know what that means
22:18:49Cka3kathat means he fucking killed my hd
22:18:52Cka3kathat kid is gonna dier

22:20:31Cka3kalmao why?
22:20:38Cka3kawhat would be the right one? ;-)
22:20:47Cka3kadont give mp3 to friends ? :-)
22:20:47LinusNthe lesson you learned is to keep a backup
22:20:50webguest80LinusN - I'll check the Cooked post, and DarkkOne I'll try checking that, but that's usually super confusing to me :(
22:21:06Cka3kahow do you know that even if i format itll work?
22:21:13Cka3kathas the real question
22:21:34XavierGrCka3ka: because you will have a clear filesystem after a format
22:21:41LinusNCka3ka: did he drop it?
22:21:41Learjust pulling the usb plug at a bad time can't really hurt anything more than the file system.

22:27:02*Lear was there for 11 months (or was it 11.5?)...
22:27:08LinusNDarkkOne: just ask the question, and those who know the answer will reply
22:27:29XavierGrBut I guess its your choice, right?
22:27:51XavierGrYou will have a free career time after that
22:27:55DarkkOneWell, I'm just curious why so much stuff is hardcoded. Like, for the viewers, the file associations are loaded from an external .txt, but for the codecs they seem hardcoded unless I'm missing something.
22:27:56*Lear still had some time for hacking...
22:28:10XavierGrI will have to quit my job to enlist at 201
22:28:10DarkkOneI was curious if there was a hardware reason or something, or if that's just the way it got done when it got done?
22:28:14 Quit hicks (Success)
22:28:14Slasheriyes.. other choise was to be 11 or 6 months totally without anything..
22:28:35LinusNDarkkOne: it's hardcoded for now
22:28:57LinusNwhen things are more stable, maybe it will be more dynamic
22:29:14XavierGrSlasheri: Will you get your iHP with you?
22:29:21LinusNthe file types weren't dynamic from the beginning either
22:29:24DarkkOneWhat I was really asking was, is there a reason to keep it hardcoded for now?
22:29:35LinusNDarkkOne: yes, it is much easier
22:29:36Learmetadata handling aren't in the codecs now, which makes it harde to do dynamic properly, I guess...
22:29:51SlasheriXavierGr: of course i will :) that was a dream to get it there with rockbox.. =)
22:29:56DarkkOneI'm just looking for something in the code I could work on / help with.
22:30:05XavierGrIndeed you made your dream come true...
22:30:41DarkkOneI'm taking my first step from "OSS observer / donator / wahtever" to wherever I land when I fall.

22:42:03Cka3kalmao im back on, been meaning to ask someone, youd seem to know best, since iriver has built in radio, could that be used to pick up the mad low signal sent out by atomic clock station to sync time since iriver doesnt stay "on" in off mode enough to keep a clock?
22:42:35Cka3kaeh, seems like an idea i think
22:42:39Cka3kato keep time on it

22:59:21webguest90is there a alarm timer buried in RBox for iriver ?
23:00:41DarkkOneI don't think so.
23:01:02DarkkOneSince there's not a realtime clock, the best that could be done is probably a countdown timer of some sort.
23:01:11DarkkOneAnd of course, it has to be left one for that to work.

23:38:24susanhello - can someone answer a quick q re booting up rockbox?

23:40:07ShebbI might be able to help then
23:40:14ShebbAre you using the right file system?
23:40:14uskiwhat is happening is that your iHp shows the "id3 database"
23:40:24uskiit is a setting that you can change
23:40:33uskibut i don't know how on iHp, maybe that Shebb knows ;)
23:40:34ShebbPress the ab button

23:55:00Shebband do sort directories
23:55:02susani made a folder w albums in chronological order and sent the foleder to the iHP, but then they come back alphabetically..
23:55:12***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
23:56:20susano thi was thinking i would have to name an album 01 the beatles, folder 2 would be 02 yellow submarine (so that yellow sub does not go to the end due to the y)
23:56:37susanis there a way to sort foldrrs (directories) so they wont be alpha?
23:56:49Shebblike... how?
23:57:23ShebbI would place yellow dub
23:57:26Shebbunder beatles
23:57:28susanlike say i wanted a beatles folder w folders of albums within the beatles folder..
23:57:45Shebbput them in there in the harddrive
23:57:45susani'd want them to be in chrono order of release date..not alpha ordered by title name
23:57:57DarkkOneWhat you could do is "YYYY - Album Name" for the folder name
23:58:09DarkkOneAlot of programs can even generate folders named like that for you.
23:58:47 Quit Shebb ("CGI:IRC")
23:58:54susani mean as an example "Abbey Road" is a late album..maybe # 10 of 15 in a beatles folder, but it always goes to #1
