00:30:50Dima202Hey guys. I have an FM Recorder. Took out my old universal adaptor and connected my player without reading instrructions of polarity and voltage. I put it on 12v and tried dif. polarity. I then saw a couple of times the blue light and it went on and off for couple of seconds. Then it dissapeared. It does not charge even with the correct voltage and polarity, I just went to Radioshack and checked. Is it possible to somehow test it over usb
00:30:56 Quit ender` (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
00:31:32Dima202Maybe its possible to charge it through usb?
00:32:03Dima202I just bought a battery for the jukebox and really want the thing in working condition :(

00:38:14Dima202When I connected the battery, I installed rockbox and it showed me low battery
00:38:19Dima202So I tried to find a source

01:04:34XavierGrHmm I will try to see if I have bugs with this.

01:16:57TiMiDI have a question about diff
01:17:09TiMiDwhen I do a diff, I get thingslike this
01:17:11TiMiD−−- rockbox-daily-20051008/apps/dbtree.c 2005-08-30 09:52:36.000000000 +0200

01:17:18XavierGrthe commnd?
01:17:39TiMiDI would like to change rockbox-daily-20051008/apps/dbtree.c to apps/dbtree.c for example
01:17:45XavierGrthis is the header that has file creation information between files
01:18:00TiMiDI read the man but I didn't figured out how to do this
01:18:11XavierGryou shouldbe able to change it by hand.
01:18:25XavierGrthis header shows which files you diffed.
01:18:28TiMiDthere is a lot :( (in that case I would do a sed :p)
01:19:00XavierGrbut why change it? I think it can find the correct diles if patched to the right folder.
01:19:53 Join telliott [0] (
01:20:20TiMiDI just wanted to know because all patches I saw were not like that
01:20:25XavierGrbut test it to be sure first, I am not sure my self.
01:20:36XavierGrmy pathces work though
01:20:56TiMiDdiff -Naurd rockbox-daily-20051008/ rockbox-remote-daily-20051008/ > patch.diff
01:21:04TiMiDthis is the command I use
01:22:24TiMiDok it seems to work :p
01:22:39Dima202TiMiD DO U have an fm recorder?
01:22:43telliottAnyont think we will have affordable 40-60 gig solid sate players in the next couple of years?
01:23:34telliottsolid state
01:24:13Dima202is it possible to charge a battery by giving it the same voltage it gives off?
01:25:01TiMiDif I had one Iwould have tried to answer you

01:34:24Mooshehe not yet
01:34:36XavierGralso when you diff a whole build from cvs (lets say that you want to see changes between your mods and a clean build) try using (on the root of your cvs) cvs diff
01:34:48MoosTiMiD: but sure will ;-)
01:35:37TiMiDXavierGr: the problem is that cvs diff doesn't includes the new created files even with the -N options

01:40:44Moosgood job too for your patch (c du bon) ;-)

01:42:13TiMiDit will become hard to maintain up to date with cvs if it doesn't get commited
01:42:50Moosyes we hope a core dev will take a look at it very soon
01:43:18Moosa very Rockbox experimented dev needed
01:43:48TiMiDit's not a very complicated code

01:46:02uuserrtimid, are you and firefly working on the remote separately?
01:46:08Moosyes and I'm wondering is it priority for who?
01:46:26Moosprobably any core dev currently interested in remote :)

01:49:12TiMiDoh :)
01:49:37TiMiDI would be glad if other people would come to help me :)
01:49:57TiMiDI think firefly will be motivated
01:50:12MoosSure we hope so (si je pouvais je serais le 1er à t'aider)
01:50:42Moosyeah Firefly produce good works in his way too
01:50:53TiMiDyou can (dl the build, intall it and try to make it crash ^^)
01:50:59Moosit could be usuful if he is interested
01:51:03TiMiDfirefly produces in impressive work !
01:51:30TiMiDhe changed almost 3000 lines
01:52:28Moosyes very good works and also users use his build
01:53:12TiMiDit would be good if he could make his build on the top of mine so that I could get bug reports
01:53:35TiMiD(that what I lack the most atm)
01:53:47TiMiDand I can't believe it's bugfree :)

08:07:42amiconnIt's already committed...
08:08:01amiconnYou could adapt finnish though
08:08:14Slasheriok :)
08:09:15amiconnI measured boot times without dircache, with dircache, and dirchache firstboot
08:09:31amiconn(from pushing the Play button until the browser appears)
08:09:42Slasherihmm, what did you find out?
08:09:44amiconnGood thing: The dircache is truly transparent
08:10:03amiconnFirst boot added a little above 4 seconds
08:10:30Slasherithat's good. I thought it could be possible that the disk access could delay the boot slightly, but it seems it does not
08:10:34amiconnBad thing: The iriver has the longest boot time of all my rockboxes :(
08:11:08Slasherihehe, i think the iriver is quite fast
08:12:27amiconnSpeed order here: Ondio 3.4s, Recorder 4.3s, Studio 5.2s, H40 7.7s
08:13:05amiconnThe archoses have an advantage here - they're all running rockbox from flash :)
08:14:19Slasherihmm, the disk on iriver has almost 3s spin up time
08:15:03Slasheriso putting rockbox flash in future could make it faster than Studio
08:15:29Slasherior maybe not..
08:15:36amiconnIt should
08:16:13amiconnThe advantage is that rockbox could start initialising immediately, then it waits for the disk spinup to finalise
08:16:51amiconnWith rockbox loaded from disk, the spinup has to finish first, then rockbox is loaded, then it can start initialising
08:17:16amiconnI guess the difference between Studio and Recorder is due to the different HD type
08:17:51amiconn(80GB IBM in the recorder, 10GB Hitachi in the studio)
08:29:42 Quit phaedrus961 ("Leaving")
08:32:24amiconnHmm, there must be some other problem slowing downthe boot on iriver :(
08:33:07amiconnWhen booting the archoses from disk (via bootbox), it adds less than half a second for the disk based units, and 1.5 seconds for Ondio

16:47:16Bger_cgiirci don't know the WPS codes and i don't have time to learn them atm, so just wait and somebody else probably will answer u when he can
16:50:36Bger_cgiircbtw did u read
16:53:20novimondunno if I can put a conditional tag inside another conditional tag
16:53:31LearHm.. Should be enough to replace "%In" with "%?In<%In. >". I.e., only show tracknumber followed by "." if there is a tracknumber available.
16:53:43LearTags nests, yes.

21:44:53preglowand why is it so slow, all of a sudden?

22:27:45_FireFly_comments in wps-files aren't really ignored. e.g. if i add a comment-line between to %xl lines. the comment is shown while in wps if not all showable lines(depending on the font) are used.

23:18:37preglowamiconn: compared to the one rasher distributed in his rockbox zip, that's the only other place i've tried it
23:18:48preglowamiconn: the current one changes a lot slower
23:19:05amiconnI never tried rasher's builds, but I guess this was an older one, before my timer changes?
23:19:06preglowSeed: nothing important, just wondered if something has happened on the libmpcdec front :>
23:19:15preglowamiconn: ahh, probably
23:19:31amiconnIf so, rasher's version runs with the cpu boosted (by the grayscale lib)
23:19:32preglowamiconn: not extremely old, though, but it might be that old
23:19:42preglowamiconn: of course, that's almost certainly it
23:19:58amiconnThe cvs grayscale lib no longer needs it, but of course we could boost it
23:20:40preglowi'd rather make some deltas larger to make the same effect
23:20:49preglowif it can be done, i haven't looked at the source code
23:21:05amiconnfire.rock does that
23:21:14amiconn(boost the cpu)
23:22:04amiconnOur coldfire doesn't stay that cold when it's boosted all the time...
23:22:37preglowindeed not, i don't think that's the way to do it
23:22:55preglowjust adjusting the spX values in plasma.c should yield the same thing anyway, i'll give it a shot
23:22:56amiconnplasma is a slow effect by itself
23:23:55preglowi wonder why the hell those spX variables are static and global, they should be const local
23:25:10amiconnconst local makes no sense
23:25:37preglowwhy not? they'll be inlined as constans in the code
23:25:42amiconnthis combination still causes them to be 'constructed' at runtime, unlike (const) globals
23:25:43preglowconstants, even
23:25:49pregloware you certain?
23:25:58preglowsounds kind of weird
23:26:05amiconnInlining only works on coldfire
23:26:17amiconnHmm, not entirely true...
23:26:23preglowyeah, sure, code inlining, but i'm pretty certain constant inlining is done
23:26:28preglowanywhere, that is
23:26:43amiconnNo, I mean inlining of constants
23:26:51amiconn_small_ constants can be inlined on SH1 too
23:27:04amiconn(range -128...+127)
23:27:08preglowyes, that'll be more than ample
23:27:13preglowthey're 2 and 4 at the moment
23:27:27***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
23:27:35amiconnThe grayscale needs some performance too
23:28:01preglowstill, global or no, they should be const, so they at least stand a possibility of being inlined
23:28:23preglownothing important, just noticed it while looking at the code now

23:39:18preglowworks great
23:40:37preglowthough it gets really choppy, i wonder why
23:43:34preglowif you press up a couple of times, you see it's really choppy all the time, actually
