00:01:11muesli-format muesli:
00:02:40XavierGrformat you?
00:02:55***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
00:03:31XavierGrdoes anyone remembers how can I save my alias in linux?
00:04:36Vortexwrite them down to ~/.bash_rc
00:05:29XavierGrok thanks
00:05:55XavierGris this bash_rc a file?
00:06:14Vortexits the bash shell startup script
00:06:19Vortexits a file
00:06:45Vortexmight not be the exact name, try ls -al
00:06:49Vortexsee if something pops up
00:06:55Vortexat your home dir, ofcourse
00:10:50XavierGr# auto-complete is case INsensitive
00:10:50XavierGr# also requires an edit .inputrc
00:10:50XavierGrshopt -s nocaseglob
00:11:05XavierGrthats what was written in .bashrc
00:11:27XavierGrnow can I type alias 'name'=command and save it?
00:13:24Vortexi think its alias="command"
00:13:26Vortexnot sure
00:15:07XavierGrI'll give it a try

00:59:25XavierGrHCl: It gave a run time error again?
01:03:27XavierGrHoly CRAP. It works on my player but it crashes on the simulator!!!!!
01:03:51XavierGrHow's that happening?
01:04:57XavierGrNow I am in fear to test what I programmed in the simulator. What if it crashes on other correct instances too?
01:13:30 Quit Sucka ("a bird in the bush is worth two in your house")
01:19:00HClXavierGr: yea, the sim isn't always accurate
01:19:05HCli remember when i first got rockboy to run
01:19:13HClit worked on iriver but not in the simulator
01:19:43HClone of the reasons why i rarely ever use the simulator to test what i code
01:23:20 Join crashd [0] (
01:28:05XavierGrso HCl are you going to optimize the rockboy emulator any time soon (or is it on your plans?)
01:28:38XavierGrDo you think that it can be optimized to be playable (with its sound on)
01:29:27 Quit Vortex ("random chances operate in my favour")
01:29:40HClits been in an increasing priority, at least.
01:29:54HClfirst thing i need to look at is making the runtime database work without a tag database
01:30:21HCland it *can* be optimized, but the question is more to how much time you want to put in optimizing it, heh.
01:30:41HCli know there are a few critical functions that can be converted to asm without too much trouble
01:30:58HClif that doesn't give enough speed we'll have to rewrite the cpu core to assembly
01:32:36XavierGrhmm I don't know much about programming but whenever I hear "optimizing" I think that this must be the most difficult part. Because you will have to think ways to do the same thing but without cluttering the cpu. Very difficult indeed.
01:33:12XavierGrAnd sometimes this may lead up to complete reright, I guess...
01:34:13DarkkOneSome might argue it's the most fun, depending on the person though
01:34:31HCli know at least that people who are expecting it to do full color on h3x0 are badly mistaken
01:34:46HClit barely has enough cpu to do grayscale, let alone remapping the colors
01:35:11HClbut it runs pretty well.
01:35:23HClwe should be able to squeeze a little more speed out of it
01:36:14XavierGrhm I now remember my brother telling about one of his friends.
01:36:14 Quit crashd ("Lost terminal")
01:36:49XavierGrHe told him that he HAS PROGRAMMED an alternate firmware for the iHP!!!!!
01:37:09HCllet me guess, he used that picture changer thing?
01:37:14HClor was he actually trying to take credit for rockbox?
01:37:22 Join crashd [0] (
01:37:28XavierGrThat's what I am thinking
01:37:44XavierGrI will actually call him to see what's happening
01:38:25XavierGralso the same guy said that the sony PSP uses a 40-core CPU? and that he managed (after many months of work) to make 32-core CPU alone!!!!!
01:38:57HClif someone said that to me i'd be instantly ignoring them about computers and try to change subjects
01:39:17XavierGrMy brother is trully technical handicap but that is just crazy!
01:39:55XavierGrWho can believe all this crap? And when I told my brother that he is lying he yelled at me
01:40:58XavierGrThough, I am very curious too actually listen this guy about all these.
01:42:22XavierGrAnd I say to me. Is there any chance a guy like him have an alternate firmware, while a whole team is working on it?
01:42:47XavierGrI am thinking that my brother maybe heard something different from him...

01:45:16BoD[]does anyone know how (if possible) to remove drm protection from a wma file?
01:45:44BoD[]a friend bought a song on napster (yes) and one on yahoo music... and of cours I can't play it on my pc
01:49:21XavierGryou can make a real time recording while playing it on his PC
01:50:24XavierGrI searched a little bit about it only to found that removing drm is no longer possible. (nothing is inpossible but for the time being noone has written an app for it)
01:50:37DarkkOneWell, if it's the actual purchased napster songs, those are supposed to be strippable.
01:50:45DarkkOneI thought...
01:51:59thegeek_Advanced Encode Decode Tools
01:52:12thegeek_it basically just plays it and records it at the same time
01:52:28thegeek_it did the latest wma protection last time I used it
01:52:49thegeek_you prob. wont understand that
01:52:52thegeek_it norwegian
01:53:22XavierGryeah thegeek but what if you don't have the PC with the license?
01:53:43thegeek_you need to do it on the pc with the license
01:53:59thegeek_afaik there is no known vulnerabilities in the latest wma protection
01:54:11thegeek_the last one was cracked because of a vulnerability
01:54:13XavierGrpeople should stop buying srm music
01:54:21thegeek_but this latest one does seem quite secure
01:54:28thegeek_who the hell cares
01:54:40thegeek_I don't buy music with drm out of principle
01:54:47thegeek_not that I buy that much music anyway;p
01:54:55XavierGrthere is nothing secure. If it has a lock-up algorithm you can exploit it and find the opposite
01:54:59HClpeople who buy drm are idiots
01:55:06XavierGrthough that maybe very very difficult
01:55:14thegeek_well XavierGr
01:55:16thegeek_that is the point
01:55:19thegeek_without the license
01:55:23thegeek_you can't "crack" it
01:55:31thegeek_it's the basic principle of all encryption
01:55:41thegeek_it is trivial to play it with the license
01:55:51thegeek_without it you'll be facing some problems,)
01:56:19thegeek_you could bruteforce it
01:56:26thegeek_but that would not be practical
01:56:27ashridahthegeek_: see you in a few thousand years
01:56:32ashridahat least :)
01:56:33XavierGryeah but someone that has bought a piece can see how it works reproduce it and make an app that will do the job. Though this theoritical I think it can be done.
01:56:52thegeek_XavierGr: the license is ofcourse different for each album/song
01:57:03ashridahXavierGr: there is no 'opposite' to encryption.
01:57:04thegeek_and the license is just basically the key
01:57:08ashridahnot decent encryption anyway
01:57:24ashridahthe reverse method is only one of millions of combinations
01:57:26ashridahand you need the right one
01:57:42thegeek_I remember beeing _very_ impressed with the last wma decryption code
01:57:42ashridahrealistically, it'd be easier to figure out how to extract the key :)
01:57:42XavierGryeah but the algorithm of the encryption if found can make the mp3 audible
01:57:54thegeek_the encryption technique used is really quite nice
01:57:58ashridahXavierGr: no it can't.
01:58:27thegeek_not without the key
01:58:32ashridahjust knowing the algorithm gets you virtually no-where
01:58:36XavierGras long as a player opens the file and plays it I cant see why you cant with another app
01:58:44thegeek_you need the key
01:58:46thegeek_to unlock it
01:58:54ashridahXavierGr: other apps can, IF they've got access to the key
01:59:01XavierGrand what if you know the algorithm to make the key?
01:59:01thegeek_without the key
01:59:04thegeek_nothing can open it
01:59:09ashridahXavierGr: that doesn't help you either.
01:59:12thegeek_there is no algo to make the key
01:59:19thegeek_it's "random"
01:59:26thegeek_as random as you can get
01:59:40thegeek_not really
01:59:44thegeek_but it's random enough
01:59:56ashridahXavierGr: the key generation involves selecting (at least, for earlier encryptions) the factorisation pair from a really REALLY huge number. and you need to know that exact pair, and that's an NP-hard problem to brute force
02:00:23ashridahmake the key long enough, and we're talking something that's going to take you longer than there is life left in the universe
02:00:28XavierGrand why dont they make this kind of encryption to programs?
02:00:36ashridahXavierGr: they do
02:00:36thegeek_it's not the same
02:00:39thegeek_it's not
02:01:26ashridahssh, openssl, gpg and others all use variants of encryption that are virtually unbreakable, provided the key length is long enough.
02:01:28HClXavierGr: they're planning to do that in windows vista
02:01:31thegeek_armadillo gets close
02:01:36HClread that site
02:01:59XavierGrso in some years you say that there will be no cracked programs?
02:02:07HClthats microsoft's intention, yes.
02:02:10HClread the site, it explains it all.
02:02:21HClwindows vista is supposed to have it. i'm not going to get the newer windows versions.
02:02:41HClthey can go beep theirselves.
02:02:51HClthe day they try to force me to buy their crap is the day i switch to linux
02:02:57***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
02:02:57thegeek_ok XavierGr
02:03:02thegeek_there are program that do it already
02:03:05thegeek_using dongle's
02:03:08thegeek_add-on hardware
02:03:16XavierGrI know about dongles
02:03:16ashridahHCl: poser. i switched years ago, without needing to be forced by ms :)
02:03:16thegeek_f.ex to plug into the parallell port
02:03:21thegeek_and if the cracked does not have the dongle
02:03:24thegeek_it is very hard to crack it
02:03:29XavierGrbut I have heard that there are cracked versions of them too
02:03:37thegeek_the cracked has the dongle
02:03:40thegeek_so he decrypts the program
02:03:46thegeek_cracks it
02:03:48thegeek_and there you go
02:03:50thegeek_cracked program
02:04:00XavierGrso if you do the same for the drm?
02:04:08thegeek_you still dont get it
02:04:10XavierGror it is song specific?
02:04:13thegeek_ofcourse you can
02:04:18thegeek_or atleast album specific
02:04:21thegeek_I said that 10 mins ago
02:05:29XavierGrso even theoritically (but without brute force methods) yoou say that drm universal drm cracking is impossible?
02:05:30thegeek_if the encryption algorithm has a flaw
02:05:33thegeek_that can be exploited
02:05:49thegeek_as long as the content is viewable it's crackable
02:05:49thegeek_I mean
02:06:02thegeek_you'd have to drm the viewers brain
02:06:06ashridahXavierGr: you realise, of course, that the only reason dvd decryption got cracked was that Xing accidentally left an unencrypted form of their decryption key inside their program, and someone extracted it
02:06:13thegeek_it's not
02:06:26thegeek_even without that key
02:06:30thegeek_it would have been cracked
02:06:39thegeek_css was weak
02:07:04ashridahthegeek_: sure, it was weak, but no-one sat there brute forcing it.
02:08:35thegeek_it would surely have been cracked
02:08:51ashridahby now, probably.
02:09:02XavierGrhey That TCPA thing is the worst thing I have heard.
02:09:11thegeek_it's only 40bit
02:09:19thegeek_so even brute-force would not be that bad
02:09:27thegeek_a modern computer
02:09:31thegeek_can brute force it in 24 hours
02:09:38XavierGrWho the hell is gonna confront about having a security chip in your PC?
02:09:57thegeek_it will never ever ever work
02:12:02XavierGrexcuse me the article there says that they are planning on doing opensource programms illegal!!!! How that is explained by them? With what arguments are they going to support this!!!
02:12:38XavierGrThis is outrageous. I am freaking out...
02:12:44thegeek_chill out
02:12:46thegeek_once again
02:12:50thegeek_it will never work
02:12:59ashridahXavierGr: personally, i find those arguments unjustifiable, but conspiracy theorists love it
02:13:02thegeek_perhaps if microsoft did have a _complete_ monopoly
02:13:16thegeek_but with the current situtation
02:13:17thegeek_no way
02:13:41thegeek_any motherboard manufacturer would see that there is a market for non-tcpa motherboards

02:14:13thegeek_oh well

04:58:58stevenmHello. Does anyone know what happened to midi2wav.c ?
04:59:21stevenmthere's a bug I want to fix, but cannot find the file!
05:09:39ashridahwas it ever in CVS?
05:10:05ashridahmy guess is that someone ported it to the audio plugin architecture instead of it being a viewer
05:11:06stevenmashridah, I found it being moved to the attic... not seeing any port of it
05:11:19stevenmI guess it was just moved because all the other *2wav files were too
05:11:53stevenmI will write an actual CODEC of it, but right now there's another problem. Sim doesn't run- Floating Point Exception
05:11:59ashridahmost likely
05:13:26stevenmashridah, do you know what's up with the sim? I just built newest version, X11 sim, for Iriver 120/140. Start it, and get Floating Point Exception, no window, nothing

06:37:06LeperkawnBy 'done', I mean stable enough to use.
06:37:31ashridahwhen you've got 90% done, you've still got another 90% to go. (otherwise seen as, the final 10% takes 90% of the time)
06:37:51LeperkawnSo you're speaking proportionately (sp)
06:38:05LeperkawnTechnically you're saying you 1/2 way done overall. Right?
06:38:47ashridahwell, atm, the player's reasonably stable
06:38:47LeperkawnBut one could look at is as 90% done with that last 10% being out of proportion.
06:38:52ashridahbut there's still some major features missing
06:39:02ashridahand playback isn't completely satisfactory.
06:39:19LeperkawnI'm just interested on that starting of the h2x0 version :)
06:39:38ashridahproper remote support, recording, fm support, better seamless playback.
06:40:09ashridahwell, the H3x0 branch is mostly waiting on someone developing a bootloader, and getting an LCD driver running, then it's about the same as the H1x0 branch.
06:40:19ashridahthe problem is, the people with BDM's have been busy
06:40:33ashridahso working on the bootloader isn't progressing at the moment
06:40:51LeperkawnAh, I see.
06:41:06LeperkawnMy h3x0 is sad, because it has no playlist mode. It really sucks.
06:41:32ashridahit will get done eventually, but not without a BDM, since that's the only efficient and safe way to dissect the iriver firmware and insert rockbox bootloading code
06:42:02ashridahthe LCD's likely to require a lot of manual poking via a BDM too
06:42:30LeperkawnMan, It's so annoying. I am not skilled at all in C or C programming, and I want to help.
06:42:38LeperkawnC plus plus**
06:43:15LeperkawnYet there is nothing I can do to assist.
06:43:24ashridahwell, getting the bootloader working relies far more on having embedded development experience. that said, a reasonable amount of the work has already been done, so far as the iriver h3x0 range is concerned
06:43:47ashridahbut the iriver firmware itself needs to be analysed so that we can insert a rockbox bootloader into it
06:44:05LeperkawnCan you think of anything I can do besides sit on my ass and wait? =P
06:44:23ashridahbuy people with H3x0's and experiences BDM's? :)
06:45:02ashridah(the other problem is that they actually have far more H1x0's available to tinker with than 3x0's)

12:14:44MO-PantsuIf I plug the charger in supplied with the H140 I get hum from the headphone out
12:15:13MO-Pantsuunplug and back to pure silence. will try with it off hold on
12:15:40ashridahsounds like a ground loop someplace.
12:19:36MO-PantsuOK if I plug it in the headphones I get minor hum when the unit is on. If I plug the charger in I get LOUD hum. Also if I switch the unit off and unplug the charger the LOUD hum remains. If I plug into the line out I get no hum.
12:20:27MO-PantsuThis is using a pair of powered speakers
12:21:14MO-PantsuI want to use it on powered speakers at night with the PSU so I don't run the batterie down.
12:21:22MO-PantsuLine out should be fine
12:21:29bluebrother^hmm. Try turning the charger 180 degrees around in the AC socket
12:21:40MO-PantsuUK plug
12:21:47ashridahheh. can't do that here :)
12:21:54ashridahbut yeah, sounds like there's a ground loop or something
12:22:01bluebrother^ok, then forget it ;-)
12:22:10ashridahare the speakers and the charger on the same powerboard or whatever?
12:22:12bluebrother^in germany this helps sometimes.
12:22:14MO-PantsuI will have to test a bit more
12:22:28MO-Pantsuyeah I think so
12:22:36MO-Pantsuto ashridah
12:22:50MO-Pantsulets try something else..brb
12:28:21MO-PantsuOK what I get is a low hum from both the headphone and line out when on with the PSU. I get a loud hum from the headphone out if the unit is off which changes tone slightly as the unit is powered on but once booted goes baco to the low hum.
12:28:58MO-PantsuWhen the player is off with the PSU unplugged I get a hum too.
12:30:05MO-PantsuWhen the player is on and booted without the PSU I get total silence from headphone and line out (Apart from when playing something of course).
12:30:33MO-Pantsumaybe linus will know. I gotta go anyhow.

21:06:59stevenmand if its still works, then the floating point error must be caused by any of the other 10 thousand packages that need updating on here
21:07:44lodesii'll check my logs to see what have been updated here
21:08:13stevenmyea, ever since I got my laptop, I pretty much stopped using the desktop. that did save my butt at work once, we needed some really outdated ebuilds
21:09:21lodesihu, gentoo at work is a dangerous thing ..
21:09:52lodesii have it on my laptop, and i can remember some bad week-end trying to recover a stable system...
21:10:08stevenmhaha, tell me about it
21:10:11lodesiafter a bad update :/
21:10:21stevenmone time, out of the blue, they add that STUPID gentoo wireless config stuff
21:11:10stevenmnew baselayout, i believe it was. since then, it will not start any wireless interface unless you read through their 100 page config file and figure out how to tell it to let you configure wifi MANUALLY using iwconfig
21:11:46stevenmor use the real config. again, desktop to the rescue- got the outdated version of net.eth0, and that saved the day
21:12:52lodesispeaking of the baselayout, it did change since my rockboxui doesn't works :(
21:13:35stevenma lot of things did probably
21:14:01stevenmi did a quick strace, didnt see anything unusual... glibc, pthreads, etc
21:14:08stevenmi figure i start with glibc and friends
21:14:28lodesiyep a 'break main' in gdb doesn't catch anything...
21:14:31stevenmthen maybe emerge world, and check if it still works, every 5 packages or so
21:15:03 Nick bluebrot1er^ is now known as bluebrother^ (
21:15:13stevenmmaybe a specific call inside rockboxui causes this.. maybe shove some debug printfs in it (and catch the sigfpe)

21:17:16stevenmokay, it built
21:18:55lodesia printf dosn't do anything :(
21:19:16stevenmlodesi, you probably need to catch the sigfpe
21:19:19stevenmbut it doesn't matter
21:19:33stevenmi upgraded to glibc 2.3.5, and it worked still

21:19:39stevenmand ran it again
21:19:46stevenmand there it is- floating point exception
21:20:11stevenmlodesi, so there you have it- glibc 2.3.5 causes this
21:21:03stevenmhere's a crazy idea- leave a copy of 2.3.4 inside the rockboxui directory (or give an LD_LIBRARY_PATH) and then emerge 2.3.5 for the rest of the system

21:23:59stevenmI'd quickpkg the current working version first if I were you
21:25:28stevenmlodesi, quickpkg. it takes that package's files and tars em up
21:25:31lodesiif it screws up, i boot with a knoppix and downgrade in a chroot
21:25:37stevenmthat works
21:25:57stevenmbe careful, glibc is a dangerous thing, esp with all the crap gentoo does to it
21:27:55stevenmoh no! the LATEST latest glibc ebuilds require GCC 3.4

22:09:43 Quit bagawk ("Leaving")
22:09:48Bgerno, i don't
22:09:57Bgerdidn't know about this glibc thing
22:10:28stevenmWell I did a look at it quickly, and I tried my binary on a different computer and it ran fine
22:10:49stevenmI suspected glibc because my friend had some issues with it, also involving the same error
22:10:54Bgerok, i guess you're right
22:11:09Bgerjust tried to be helpful
22:11:13stevenmso I went to a machine with 2.3.4 on it and it worked. Then I installed glibc 2.3.5 on that computer, and it started dying
22:11:22stevenmBger, thanks, i appreciate that
22:11:32Bgerheh, not a big thing
22:11:39Bgeranyway, bye ;)

22:14:11stevenmlodesi, woah!! seems to be working with glibc-2.3.5-r1
22:14:36stevenmlodesi, I emerged glibc-2.3.5-r1 on my desktop and it looks like it is working
22:14:43lodesimine will finish soon,i'll see
22:16:26stevenmlodesi, emerging it on my laptop, we'll see what happens
22:16:54stevenmin the meantime, i'm gonna go swim some laps. i be back in like, 20-30 min, it should be done then

22:41:23ShadowMasterah okay
22:41:24lodesiit's ok with glibc2.3.5-r1 as well here :)
22:41:30ShadowMasterI also try to speak english here
22:41:39Bagderyou fixed the gentoo sim problemo?
22:42:07lodesiBagder: yes it's o, now
22:42:11ShadowMasterwhat I wanted to know was how can I create a DB like that one from the 1.65 fw like artist-song-album
22:42:36Bagderso upgrading glibc is the thing to do?
22:42:46BagderShadowMaster: you read the wiki page?
22:43:17lodesiBagder: yes, but you need t ounmask the latest version first
22:43:33ShadowMasterNo I didnt
22:43:36ShadowMasterwhat wiki page?
22:43:45Bagderlodesi: I know several people got that problem
22:43:55bluebrother^that page:
22:44:09bluebrother^I tried it before and it works pretty nice.
22:44:29ShadowMasterwow thx
22:44:31ShadowMasterokay ill also try it

23:04:22stevenmI been out of the loop for a bit.. is it possible to play sound from a plugin? or does it have to be a codec?
23:05:31BagderI think the metronome plugin works fine
23:05:35Bagderit plays sound
23:07:04stevenmAh, all right
23:07:31stevenmI want to add *actual* sound support to my plugin, instead of just outputting a wav file
23:07:31BagderI saw someone making a "drum machine" plugin too
23:08:02BagderI guess the sound playing API still lacks
23:08:04stevenmBagder, really? There is a whole bank of drum sounds within the midi soundset
23:08:32stevenmand the gus patchloader is in cvs already, so that can be useful
23:09:34stevenmBy the way, i think the new burger king (taco bell?) commercial, with the band and box of wings, they actually say 'rockbox'
23:10:28stevenmi wasn't even paying attention, then heard 'rockbox' and was like, 'hmm? eh?'
23:12:04Bagderso how come they say that? I mean what's the context?
23:15:22stevenmI think it was a box of food and there was a band playing rock music, supposedly due to the food
23:15:40stevenmadvertising is a very bizzare thing
23:15:52Bagderhehe, yeah
23:16:45stevenmthe extra rockbox logo at the bottom of the sim, is that the remote LCD?
23:17:11Bagderif you enable logf logging, you'll get that in the remote lcd
23:17:38Bagderotherwise it isn't use much yet
23:17:41stevenmfor some reason now, if you minimize the sim and restore it, the main screen isn't redrawn. the remote lcd part is, though
23:20:24stevenmthere, finally, better pitchbend
23:20:38stevenmmakes bad cheezy music from the 80s sound better
23:20:43stevenm(if that is even possible)
23:22:35*stevenm wonders if austriancoder uses gentoo
23:22:42Bagderhe does
23:23:00stevenmwell then there's his problem. saw his issue in the logs
23:23:10Bagderyes, matsl got it too, also using gentoo
23:23:53stevenmsomehow though, i am not surprised
23:24:19stevenmgentoo developers have done much stranger things, causing much more breakage
23:24:28stevenmlike breaking all the nodes on our farm at work
23:25:01stevenmwe were like, "oh, no problem, we'll just downgrade", but wait! the old ebuilds have been removed. oooops..
23:25:39Bagderthat sounds painful
23:26:02stevenmoh yes. we were saved by the fact that my other machine was so outdated that it had the old ebuild on it
23:26:12stevenmelse we probably would have gotten canned
23:26:16crashdi guess kdevelop needs kde libs ;P
23:26:25stevenmor probably just really yelled at
