00:25:54miner49erHi there folks, I'm just updated CVS and now when I try to rebuild the simulator, I'm getting X11/Intrinsic.h: No such file or directory. Any ideas? I'm keen to work on my plugin!!!
00:26:30Bagderwhat OS are you on?
00:27:01miner49erhi badger, i'm on Debian
00:27:19Bagderand you have x11 dev files installed?
00:28:08miner49erWell, it was bvuilding just before...well, i'd re-installed debian and just copied my rockbox stuff over, and was just running make again, so maybe i havn't..hang on.
00:28:10Bagderlibxt-dev to be exact
00:28:26Bagderfor that particular file
00:30:02miner49erduuh, that was it i think, I hadn't installed it...
00:31:00miner49erI searched for intrinsic.h in the debian package searcher tool and couldn't find it though, so thought it must have been something else

02:36:19AciDas rockbox will be fully operationnal on ipod 5g and iriver h3xx (and I even saw that somebody's planning to port it to iaudio x5), what would be the best mp3 player to buy for christmas ? :)
02:38:45markunAciD: Depends what you want.
02:39:04markuniriver H140 is still nice if you only care about audio.
02:39:16lostlogicYES! The first part of oggpack_look is now assemblified.
02:39:22AciDI previously had an archos jukebox 6000, but it died few weeks ago
02:40:13AciDfortunatly, I can afford any mp3 player
02:40:24AciDso, I don't really know which one to take
02:40:29markunlostlogic: any speed improvement?
02:41:11AciDat least one supported by rockbox for sure :)
02:41:17lostlogicmarkun: a little, maybe 1% boost change, I haven't profiled it yet, I'm going to do the other half of this function and then profile, because basically I've only gotten 1/2 of the potential out of it because it's a big if-else and I did the if but not the else.
02:45:23 Quit chiller ("Eg gjer vel faen..")
02:47:09linuxstb_AciD: We can't guarantee it will be fully operational on an ipod 5g, but I'm certainly going to try. Audio support is an unknown factor at the moment.
02:48:05 Part linuxstb_ ("Leaving")
02:48:10AciDso, if I had to choose between all the players supported (fully or partially) by rockbox, which would be the best ?
02:48:14AciDthe ipod ?

03:07:26linuxstbAciD: In terms of Rockbox support, I would rank the non-archos targets as follows: 1) H1x0, 2) H3x0, 3) ipod Color/Photo and ipod Nano, 4) ipod Video (5g)
03:07:54AciDand in term of functionnalities ?
03:08:15linuxstbThe H1x0 is very well supported by Rockbox, and the H3x0 has almost caught up. Both are fully-functional ports.
03:08:19AciDincluding the ones that -will- be implemented in rockbox
03:08:48AciDok so I guess it's heading me toward h3x0
03:09:20linuxstbPersonally, I like the new ipod Video a lot, but Rockbox isn't a sure bet.
03:09:37 Quit bazz ("Leaving")
03:09:50AciDI just read the ipodlinux website, ipod 5g's audio futur is...unclear
03:10:21linuxstbI think it's just that no-one has investigated it yet. It could turn out to be a trivial change, or it could be very hard.
03:10:44AciDon a design point, I'd prefer the ipod over the h340, but if you can't use half of rockbox features on it...
03:11:14AciDI'm not sure I want to bet on that :)
03:11:23linuxstbIf you wait a few weeks, the status of the 5g will probably become clearer.
03:13:11linuxstbIn terms of number of hardware features, you still can't beat the iriver h1x0 as an audio device. But of course it's not suited for video.
03:13:26 Quit DangerousDan ("Miranda IM! Smaller, Faster, Easier.")
03:14:15AciDyou mean h3x0 aren't better than h1x0 ?
03:14:23linuxstbThey are different.
03:15:01linuxstbThe h3x0 has a colour screen and usb-on-the-go. The h1x0 has digital i/o.
03:15:28linuxstbI would expect the battery life to be longer on the h1x0, but that's only a guess.
03:17:12linuxstbAnyway, time for bed.

07:36:36warewolfrockbox for iriver h300
07:36:39*warewolf loves you guys
07:36:53DreamTactix291rockbox is great
07:37:01warewolfI just donated $20 via paypal to say thank you!
07:37:19warewolfkeep up the awesome work guys, thank you very VERY much!
07:37:19DreamTactix291i did that too when we first got something working on the H1xx
07:37:39DreamTactix291H320 or H340?
07:37:47DreamTactix291how old now?
07:37:55warewolfthe unit itself?
07:37:59warewolfa year old?
07:38:05DreamTactix291just curious
07:38:12DreamTactix291H140 here
07:38:23warewolfI already ripped it apart and fixed the USB OTG
07:38:30Bgermorning :)
07:38:33*warewolf is half decent with a soldering iron
07:38:41DreamTactix291ah so i see you have an US version
07:39:02DreamTactix291all H1xxs were the same except colour
07:39:06DreamTactix291all H140s were black though
07:39:08warewolfI really hate iRiver for ripping that out of hte US version
07:39:23DreamTactix291me too
07:39:34warewolfalso: I really hated them for unbundling the h3xx in-line remote.
07:39:56DreamTactix291there's a reason i got an H1xx after the H3xx came out
07:40:07DreamTactix291not long after though
07:40:10warewolfthey distribute a hard case belt clip that not only covers the screen, but also the buttons. Eg, they never intended to sell the unit w/o the remote.
07:40:28warewolfthen they hit you up for $20 or whatever it was for the remote
07:40:38DreamTactix291or $60 for an LCD remote
07:40:42DreamTactix291in contrary with the H1xx
07:40:46DreamTactix291which had a good case
07:40:48DreamTactix291and LCD remote
07:40:52warewolfI forgot what I paid for the lcd remote
07:41:11warewolfI purchased _two_ because one broke (the damn thing split apart)
07:41:25DreamTactix291my H140 remote is like 18 months old
07:41:27DreamTactix291no problems
07:43:19*warewolf tests crossfading
07:43:42warewolfoh sexy.
07:43:42DreamTactix291gapless is my favourite feature :)
07:43:46warewolfoh yes.
07:43:55*warewolf donates another $20
07:44:02DreamTactix291the WavPack support was nice for me too
07:44:11DreamTactix291considering my entire lossless collection is WavPack
07:44:27DreamTactix291Vorbis aoTuV b4.51/Lancer -q6 for most of the stuff on my H140

07:47:55YouCeyEfor 1xxs its better.. battery life
07:48:01DreamTactix291probably worse right now on the H3xx
07:48:02YouCeyEoh ic warewolf
07:48:09DreamTactix291H1xx is definitely better
07:49:06Jungti1234haha I have H100
07:49:08warewolfwhat more is there to complete for the h300 port?
07:49:20warewolf(Eg, is there anything I can test to help out)
07:49:37Bgerwarewolf hehe
07:49:52BgerUSB host support (the biggest task)
07:50:05Bgerwhich i'm willing to help
07:50:07Jungti1234Video support
07:50:14DreamTactix291lots of litle things
07:50:15Bgeryeah, that's the other one
07:50:27warewolfI happen to have a OTG cable
07:50:29warewolfso I can test
07:50:44Jungti1234What is OTG?
07:50:49warewolfUSB On The Go
07:50:58warewolfbasically it turns your USB peripheral into a computer
07:51:09YouCeyEwarewolf, how do u like h3xx?
07:51:09Jungti1234What is On The Go..-_-
07:51:11warewolfso you can connect another USB peripherial into it, and sjuffle files around on it
07:51:14YouCeyEdid u try h1xx?
07:51:20Paul_The_NerdJungti1234: USB Host
07:51:37warewolfYouCeyE: I picked the H300 because it did not force me to use DRM crippled files
07:51:42Jungti1234It need not to speak that is OTG.
07:52:01warewolfYouCeyE: oh, and because it was just a USB hard drive, basically. Which means 100% linux support
07:52:06YouCeyEonly feature i miss in 1xx is otg
07:52:20YouCeyEyeah these irivers are awesome
07:52:26YouCeyEbut i like 1xx look
07:52:30YouCeyEsolid look
07:52:31DreamTactix291yeah but i like having the S/PDIF
07:52:33DreamTactix291me too
07:52:34warewolfI've owned iRiver products for quite some time
07:52:36*DreamTactix291 loves his H140
07:52:45Paul_The_NerdDo iPods have USB OTG? (Or, a chip that can support it with different software?)
07:52:48Jungti1234I don't like my H120
07:52:58DreamTactix291why not?
07:53:00Jungti1234It is old.
07:53:03YouCeyEPaul_The_Nerd, no
07:53:05warewolfPaul_The_Nerd: (not kidding) Don't know, don't care, I have my iRiver with rockbox :)
07:53:08DreamTactix291that doesn't make it bad
07:53:14DreamTactix291the H1xx are my favourite DAPs
07:53:17BgerDreamTactix291 in fact the OTG of h300 could allow us digital output too
07:53:19*warewolf laughs his ass off :)
07:53:31YouCeyEany mods on irivers by u guys?
07:53:41DreamTactix291my stereo doesn't have a USB connection
07:53:47DreamTactix291but does have an S/PDIF connection
07:53:53YouCeyEi want to mod the joy stick
07:53:54DreamTactix291and no i haven't modded my H140
07:54:08Bgermy stereo doesn't have anything like this
07:54:08Paul_The_Nerdwarewolf: I have an H120, but the iPod Nano appeals to me as a flash-base solution that will soon be Rockboxed.
07:54:48DreamTactix291the nano as a flash player is fine
07:54:56Jungti1234My H120.. :)
07:54:57warewolfPaul_The_Nerd: that would rock
07:55:09warewolfPaul_The_Nerd: I rather like having gigs upon gigs of disk space available though
07:55:17DreamTactix291wow your paint is all chipped away
07:55:25Jungti1234 kkk
07:55:25warewolfPaul_The_Nerd: the only thing I do w/ my iriver h340 is plug it into USB to charge it
07:55:36warewolfPaul_The_Nerd: I very rarely change what songs are on it
07:55:41Paul_The_Nerdwarewolf: I love the space, but I'd rather have something that is more shake/impact resistant as well.
07:55:45DreamTactix291i have some pics of my H140
07:55:51Jungti1234All paints came off.
07:55:57Bgeri don't think anyone who has at least semi-healthy brain could buy non-rockboxed device, once he/she had rockboxed one (except for porting the rockbox, of course)
07:56:04warewolfPaul_The_Nerd: what do you do, use a jackhammer?
07:56:54warewolfI mean, I'm aware that I have a laptop hard drive in my pocket, and I do try not to have large solid objects run into it when it's spinning but laptop drives take something massive for G-forces when not spinning
07:56:57Paul_The_Nerdwarewolf: It's more of a "I don't want to take my h120 jogging/etc because I know one day it will fail, and I'd rather have a unit designed for more active use.
07:57:12Jungti1234And my H320..
07:57:14Paul_The_NerdWhen *not* spinning is the key.
07:57:15warewolfand I assume that the rockbox firmware spins down the disk when it isn't in use
07:57:27DreamTactix291of course
07:57:46warewolfPaul_The_Nerd: still, the g-forces accepted spinning are acceptable, aslong as you don't drop it
07:58:03warewolfJungti1234: ... you .. painted .. your h3x0?
07:58:05Bgerwarewolf you can even select the timeout after which the disk spins down
07:58:19Jungti1234warewolf: It's silicone case. :)
07:58:39DreamTactix291warewolf: you want to see my H140 in a silicone case?
07:58:46warewolfDreamTactix291: sure
07:58:58Jungti1234Is H100 silicone case?
07:58:59Paul_The_Nerdwarewolf: They still provide stress on it, even if they don't cause read-errors. The idea is that the H120 is for when I want access to all my music (Hotel rooms, car/train/plane trips, etc) and the Nano or other flash based player is for jogging / exercising / any situation in which an impact or in fact any stress might occur during buffering.
07:59:06Jungti1234Does it exist?
07:59:10YouCeyEJungti1234, where to download that wps file?
07:59:37DreamTactix291 <−− just a warning. the pic is large
07:59:39warewolfPaul_The_Nerd: I'm not disagreeing with you, I just don't think it's that great of a concern. To each his own I guess.
07:59:49Jungti1234y :)
08:00:09Jungti1234It's big size. :O
08:00:13Paul_The_Nerdwarewolf: My concern isn't for "now" it's for "ever." It's already hard to find a replacement H120. I want to make sure the day that I have to pick a replacement DAP is as far away as I can.
08:00:16DreamTactix291hence the warning
08:01:00Jungti1234I want to have that.
08:01:08warewolfPaul_The_Nerd: laptop drives are easy to come by though, or do the HXXX units have nonstandard drives in them?
08:01:32Jungti1234DreamTactix291: Is not white color?
08:01:43Paul_The_Nerdwarewolf: Standard 1.8" Single platter for the 20s and two-platter for the 40s (and the 120s at least won't fit a two platter without removing some padding.
08:01:53DreamTactix291Jungti1234: that's my blue one
08:02:07DreamTactix291warewolf: 1.8" Toshiba drives
08:02:10Jungti1234Only one?
08:02:11Paul_The_NerdIt's easy enough to replace it.
08:02:25warewolfthat's what I presumed
08:02:39Paul_The_NerdBut I had a friend who's H120 died just because a purse was set on it particularly hard. And it was off. So I know there's *something* in there that doesn't handle impacts well.
08:02:43warewolfI'm working on a carpc mp3 player/gps nav project and I nabbed a 40gb WD laptop drive
08:02:44Paul_The_NerdAnd it wasn't his HD.
08:03:05DreamTactix291my H140 gets hooked up to the car most of the time
08:03:31warewolfoh, the drives
08:03:36warewolfJungti1234: thanks
08:03:52DreamTactix291 <−− one out of the case

10:10:32preglowdon't mention sleep
10:11:28preglowhaha, GREAT
10:11:40HooliganSo, I'm trying to figure out how one would write a function or plugin that takes the file name of the currently playing track and searches for a file in the same directory with the same name, but .txt extension and displays the contents in the viewer. A lyrics plugin, in other words.
10:11:46HooliganI don't quite know enough C to do it though
10:11:53*Cassandra agrees with linuxstb - espresso is the gift that keeps on giving.
10:12:07CassandraMe, I'm out of beans so I'm on tea this morning. :(
10:18:48preglowglorious tea
10:18:58preglowat least i can drink tons of it without my innards exploding
10:19:20preglowmy throat in particular is fond of coffee, it seems
10:19:59preglowlinuxstb: anywho, how much code have you stuffed in? is there any risk of it making coherent noise today?
10:21:19linuxstbI spent last night trying without success to get the fiq working. I've just tried writing audio data without using interrupts and noise happened immediately.
10:21:33preglowso, have you got the fiq working?
10:21:39preglowi assume you've set up stacks and such for it?
10:22:10linuxstbYes, but I could never get the fiq to happen.
10:22:34linuxstbI'm assuming the code is different because IPL enable fiqs for the cop?
10:22:51preglowthey do some fancy stuff
10:27:52preglowcould you make me a diff or something?

10:36:18linuxstbPass me the documentation on the PP5020 then :)
10:36:40preglowyou have that? sweet, my worries are over
10:36:49Bagdermaybe we could buy PortalPlayer for the rockbox fund! ;-)
10:37:05preglowsend them a tenner and a request for docs
10:37:32amiconnlinuxstb: Haha. I mean documentation that is available, like the rockbox manual, faq, wiki...
10:37:41Bagder"Dear Portalplayer, we'll gladly pay you the sum of 10 USD in exchange for your documentation."
10:38:04preglowpeople prefer asking other people
10:38:13linuxstbamiconn: You perfectly described my last 24 hours though.
10:38:22preglowbesides, most people have gotten used to never reading manuals
10:39:13preglowperhaps that extends to reading other material as well :>
10:39:55amiconnIt's tiring to answer the same questions over and over.. I mean things like this:
10:41:16nathanh_amiconn: what does rockbox do?!
10:41:48CassandraI still think we need electric shock via IP. Simple conditioning should be enough to fix this.
10:42:10amiconnNothing. The archos fm recorder / recorder v2 charging is hardware controlled, as it has a LiIon battery like the irivers
10:42:26amiconnSoftware controlled charging with LiIons would be dangerous
10:44:06CassandraI spend large chunks of time trying to make Rockbox so simple an idiot could use it, and they keep building better idiots. It's just not fair. ;)

11:09:40Bagderwhat's the difference?
11:09:48nathanh_i havent posted the sound code yet :-)
11:09:49nathanh_im still writing it
11:10:08Bagderthere is sound.c etc in your sdl patch
11:10:08Bagderso you did
11:10:50linuxstbpreglow: This patch should give you stuttering audio:
11:10:54nathanh_nah, thats just x11/sound.c copied across, sdl/sound.c is still being written
11:11:02preglowand how should the audio sound?
11:11:09nathanh_i need somebody to test it though, so thanks for volunteering :-)
11:11:26linuxstbBut it stutters, and there is occasional white noise (but not too noisy).
11:12:27linuxstbThe stuttering is (I think) because I'm playing back the audio in the codec thread - so it delays decoding whilst the buffer is sent to the DAC.
11:13:23CassandraDoes Rockbox play MIDI files these days, btw?
11:13:56preglowthere's this plugin
11:15:45preglowit isn't a codec yet
11:16:08preglowfirst of all, it's not that optimised, second of all, the playback system isn't ready for non-streaming codecs yet
11:16:35CassandraDoes it sound good?
11:16:47preglowdepends on the sample set you use
11:17:02preglowman, sometimes decompressing to the nano takes forever
11:17:05CassandraI'm developing a hankering for listening to some tunes from Monkey Island, which are of course only available in MIDI format.

11:25:30CassandraYes, but not stably enough that dailies are a good idea yet.
11:25:32*preglow has ipod audio
11:25:58preglownow let's try to enable the cache and perhaps it'll be better
11:26:04preglowthe little i heard was completely decent
11:27:42modajeez, once the ipod croud get wind of rockbox working on the ipod, then woosh
11:27:50modaexcept, they already have ipod-linux
11:28:15preglowlinuxstb: for some reason, sound is quite crap with cache enabled..
11:28:33pregloweverything sounds like cross between venetian snares and merzbow
11:29:14preglowflac playback almost works completely 100%
11:29:21preglowthe sample rate is a bit wrong
11:29:27preglowand there's the occasional static burst
11:29:44nathanh_if ipod nano gets rockbox working, ill seriously buy one the same day
11:30:03preglowwell, i am listening to music on one as we speak...
11:30:12*nathanh_ curses credit card
11:30:17nathanh_ok, i'll have to get one now :-)
11:30:18lamedwhat's the older ipod model? (grayscale lcd)? nano?
11:30:29linuxstbpreglow: I have to go now. If you want to continue the audio work, then make sure you have the very latest audio.c from IPL - a bugfix was committed about 10 days ago.
11:30:30preglowi assume you yourself saw my comments about static bursts, but hey
11:30:41preglowlinuxstb: yes, i update from time to time
11:31:00preglowbut i don't have time to code rockbox now anyway
11:31:34*iLyric Flips the switch too his desktop espresso machine
11:32:05preglowlibmad seems to be in need for some cpr
11:32:07linuxstbIf you view the audio thread, then you will see the pcm buffer is always empty - even with WAV files. So that's obviously the cause of the stuttering.
11:32:54preglowflac works perfectly
11:32:56preglowwavpack as well
11:33:01preglowthat is
11:33:03linuxstbYou mean without stutters?
11:33:05preglowthe sound is good
11:33:09preglowand the stutters are very small
11:33:47linuxstbI want to test 24-bit playback. According to the codec datasheet it should be possible.
11:34:12linuxstbThe DAC can also handle all frequencies up to 96KHz.
11:34:20linuxstbSo none of this resampling nonsense.
11:34:28pregloweven aac works pretty nice
11:34:54preglowwell, our dac can also handle more frequencies than we can use
11:34:58preglowthat's not the problem
11:35:31linuxstbI know. But IPL can use all the frequencies of the DAC - so there is no problem on the ipod.
11:35:37nathanh_bagder: ive uploaded the sdl audio patch, could you please test?
11:36:52CassandraHmm. This nifty retractable iPod cable I bought seems to work, although it looks like it might violate several USB specs.

14:43:27qwisp11afternoon all
14:51:14ratpack91any one here used uC/OS-II?
14:52:04_FireFly_ratpack91what's that ??
14:53:40ratpack91real-time OS for microcontrollers. I'm using it for my uni project on an HCS12. trying to understand it.
14:54:02 Quit _FireFly_ ("Clap on! , Clap off! clap@#&$NO CARRIER")
14:54:27Bagdereveryone has their own real-time OS
14:54:36BagderRockbox too! ;-)
14:54:50Bgerhaha is RB RT-OS ?
14:55:00Bagderwell, in a broader sense
14:55:06ratpack91realtime for music at least
14:55:10Bagdermost real-time OSes are just small OSes
14:55:24Bagderthe "real-time" is often to be take liberally
14:55:29 Join webguest95 [0] (
14:55:55ratpack91well if you are using it to control the brakes on your car then real time means something
14:56:04Bagderof course
14:56:12Bagderbut then you don't just trust their naming of the OS
14:56:16Bgerreaction in 2-3 secs ...
14:57:27ratpack91that's why they need certification i guess.
14:57:41Bagder"stop securely and reboot" - actual error message from a Volvo S80
14:57:54Bagder(although the message is in Swedish)
14:58:08Bagderthe term wasn't actually reboot
14:58:16Bagderbut stop and start again

23:40:28amiconnLinusN: Perhaps this IGP-100 doesn't go for much, since it has a defective hdd. Could be interesting.
23:40:32mirakdon't know if I can give you rights
23:40:54LinusNamiconn: sure, why not?
23:41:10miraklinuxstb: maybe you can create a new thread and put your file in it.
23:42:00linuxstbmirak: I may do. But as I said, I only looked briefly at it. I would like to spend more time on it though.
23:42:03miraklinuxstb: the next step is to adapt the x86 assembly parts to coldfire or arm. I removed this files, but they are in xvidcore sources. We can know what it's worse optimising
23:42:13miraklinuxstb: ok
23:42:55linuxstbI would say the code need more cleaning first - fixing all the compiler warnings and deleting any encoder-related routines.
23:43:29mirakffmpeg have the advantage to already have arm asm optimisations for dct stuffs. maybe it can be reused, or maybe some dct code of the other codec can be reused as well
23:44:08miraklinuxstb: I tried to fix some warnings, but I lack of C skills for most of them
23:44:14linuxstbWell, xvid is an important codec, so I think it's worth implementing both xvidcore and the ffmpeg version in order to compare them.
23:44:47mirakone thing I don't understand is that I don't have this warnings when doing a make for x86
23:45:00mirakmaybe gcc is compiled with different options
23:45:22linuxstbThat's possibly because you are using standard libraries and not rockbox.
23:45:38Bagderand different gcc versions
23:45:44linuxstbOr are you talking about the sim?
23:46:04miraklinuxstb: markun says he is willing to do it for ffmpeg. actually I am done with implementing a codec. at least for a momement. However I am ok to work on xvid
23:46:32LinusNBger: still not there?
23:46:34miraklinuxstb: no about H300. Actually I can't build the simulator it fails on lcd-h300.c
23:47:03mirakwell it fails on lcd emulation I mean

23:48:39amiconnmirak: Try the Win32 sim, it works
23:49:08amiconnYou can do that on linux too, the sim is working under wine
23:49:15mirakamiconn: but I can't build it
23:49:21Bagderquite a painful job

23:49:28amiconnmirak: What distro?
23:49:32mirakamiconn: ubuntu
23:49:44amiconnIf it's debian, there is a mingw crosscompiler package...
23:49:53linuxstb"apt-get install mingw32"
23:50:09mirakapt-get is bad, prefer aptitude install
23:50:12Bagderor better yet, try the sdl sim
23:50:21Bagderapt-get is king
23:50:46mirakthe advantage of aptitude is that when you remove a packet, it removes the unusused dependencies
23:50:50mirakthat's why I use it
23:51:00mirakI don't use the aptitude UI though
23:51:03LinusNPaprica: u there?
23:51:05mirakit's crap
23:51:16linuxstbmirak: Ok, then use aptitude :)
23:51:37nathanhi also recommend the sdl sim :-)
23:51:55LinusNnathanh: did you see my comments?
23:51:56miraklinuxstb: well for me it was a revelation to know that it could care of unused dependencies :)
23:52:02BagderI noticed Linusn's comments on it
23:52:04nathanhlinusn: no
23:52:16amiconnWah, really few H3x0s on eBay, and they tend to go higher than new ones :( I hope this will get better after xmas
23:52:33PapricaLinusN: ?
23:52:55LinusNPaprica: you're Ben, right?
23:53:06linuxstbamiconn: Are you looking to buy a new DAP?

23:53:45LinusNi'm about to commit your solitaire patch
23:53:51*amiconn wants to asm optimise the lcd driver, and a better (button-wise) iriver than the H1x0
23:53:53 Join webguest77 [0] (
23:54:02PapricaOK =]
23:54:29LinusNif it's ok with you
23:54:59Bagderthe h3x0 is slightly better button wise, imho
23:55:07Bagderand lcd
23:55:14Bagderthe rest is the opposite
23:55:21nathanhlinusn: i see your comments, i'll correct those problems tonight and post a new patch
23:55:24Papricaits ok for me
23:55:25amiconnWhat rest?
23:55:34LinusNnathanh: great!
23:55:43Bagderamiconn: the plastic feeling, the size
23:55:55Bagderthe switching off the lcd all the time
23:56:00LinusNthe h300 feels bulky
23:56:09amiconnBagder: Imho the H3x0 is *much* better button wise
23:56:16Bagderamiconn: you tried any?
23:56:26amiconnYes, in a shop
23:56:28mirakBagder: I don't like the directional pad of the h300, I must use my nails to push it
23:56:32*linuxstb has fallen in love with the 30GB video ipod.
23:56:44nathanhi have a question about colour wps, i've been thinking about this and i think i have a "quick fix" that will do most of what people want
23:56:55nathanhwhats the possibility of getting colour glyphs into the font rendering code?
23:57:03amiconnThe LCD is color, which is worse usage-wise, but technically interesting
23:57:32Bagdernathanh: everything is possible, but you'd need some interesting hack or a new font format
23:57:41mirakamiconn: do you think it's really worth to rescale the colors instead of bit cutting ?
23:57:47LinusNthe h300 lcd is very good imho, crystal clear
23:57:47nathanhi have a semi-working patch to load and display colour bitmaps (%xd) but the fonts are the killer
23:58:00mirakamiconn: I mean performance wise I heard that coldfire sucks with floats
23:58:13Bagdermirak: it isn't floats
23:58:25LinusNmirak: any cpu without fpu sucks with floats
23:58:25amiconnmirak: Huh? What does the pixel value scaling have to do with floats??
23:58:30mirakLinusN: yes, I am always amased when watching a video or images
23:58:34linuxstbAnd it's also mostly done at compile-time
