#rockbox log for 2006-01-17

00:00:48amiconnwindows unzip != winzip
00:01:41preglowright, i misread
00:03:04preglowlinuxstb: i still have noisy glitches with the code you told me to add to your patch
00:03:24linuxstbpreglow: Let me upload a clean patch (if I can find one).
00:03:48preglowdidn't you disable ipod cache in cvs?
00:03:56linuxstbI don't think so.
00:04:06linuxstbOnly for the bootloader I think.
00:04:13preglowthink i dreamt it
00:05:30preglowthings seem awfully stable...
00:05:58preglowamiconn: seems you're good for ipod coding even without bloody owning one
00:05:58 Quit ModernExecutive ()
00:06:10amiconnhehe :)
00:06:13linuxstbWe have him to thank for the lcd code as well :)
00:06:36preglowi've loaded plugins over and over again
00:06:39preglowit works now
00:06:44preglowcache problem solved
00:06:51preglowwhich is a great relief, i can tell you
00:07:00amiconnTeh lcd code also helps the H3x0, which I do have now
00:07:08linuxstbpreglow: Absolutely.
00:07:20linuxstbI'm just glad Linus decided to write a 16-bit driver.
00:07:51amiconnDunno if we will ever switch to 18bit. Even 16bit is slow.
00:07:52preglowbut ok
00:07:57linuxstbpreglow: I think we just need your ATA fix in CVS now....
00:08:10preglowok, what approach should i take? comment away the entire thread or just the sleep magic
00:08:17 Part b0br
00:08:36linuxstbDid the ifp port do anything with that code?
00:08:36preglowi'm for the last
00:08:41preglownot afaik
00:08:47amiconnWhat's the problem with ata?
00:09:05preglowamiconn: sleep causes subsequent accesses to hang on nano
00:09:20preglowamiconn: so far i've fixed it by commenting out the ata thread, but i don't know how clever that is
00:09:30linuxstbThe ifp code doesn't use the standard ata.c anyway, so ignore me.
00:09:51preglowlinuxstb: i'm really, really anxious to see how the codecs perform
00:09:58preglowso far even flac skips, so that's gotta be a driver issue
00:10:17amiconnHmm. Not sleeping may even hurt battery runtime on flkash devices, depending on how the flash works
00:10:25amiconnIf it auto-sleeps instead, it's okay
00:10:41preglowamiconn: well, yeah, it's not like it's a permanent solution
00:10:58amiconnIs there a data sheet for the flash chip?
00:11:16preglowwouldn't matter if there were
00:11:24preglowwe speak to it through an ata interface
00:11:27preglowbut gimme a sec
00:11:30linuxstbpreglow: I think you should just put a #ifndef APPLE_IPOD_NANO around the actual sleep magic, and mark it as a temporary solution until (if) we understand the flash.
00:11:34amiconnYes, but ata != ata
00:11:50amiconne.g. not all devices implement all commands
00:11:52 Join webguest80 [0] (
00:12:10linuxstbBut it seems to do something when told to sleep.
00:12:29preglowamiconn: what i mean is that i doubt the ata interface is in the flash itself

00:25:31 Quit petur ("here today, gone tomorrow")
00:25:51preglowlinuxstb: guess what, now that just sleep is disabled and ata thread is running, rockbox reboots on usb
00:26:02linuxstbNice :)
00:26:07linuxstbDoes it enter USB mode?
00:26:25preglowas in disk mode?
00:26:32preglowjust reboots
00:26:41preglowuntil i enter disk mode myself
00:26:46linuxstbSame as the video then.
00:26:53preglowsmall wonder
00:27:22preglowyeah, audio does work now
00:27:33preglowdoes it block or something?
00:27:41linuxstbYes, I think that's the problem.

00:28:50preglowamiconn: it's unmeeded
00:28:54amiconnMany functions make no sense at all for plugins
00:28:56preglowcontains a lot of stuff that doesn't belong
00:29:04preglowfor codecs, you mean
00:29:15amiconnargh, of course
00:30:54preglowi should really get to bed soon
00:31:38preglowactually wavpack is closes to realtime
00:31:48linuxstbpreglow: If we can get the main CPU responding to FIQs, it would be nice to see if Rockbox could work without the cop.
00:32:00preglownah, flac is equally close
00:32:08preglowi think it will, to some degree
00:32:10preglowwe'll see
00:32:28preglowi'm really bogged down with work these days, but i bet i'll be able to sneak some time in

00:54:35mirakhow is it possible ?
00:54:52solexx_um, have I missed integration of mp3 encoding support?
00:55:08solexx_the CVS log suggests there is an mp3 encoder plugin
00:55:19solexx_but I cannot find it in the Plugins Index
00:55:38solexx_(see CVS message from 16 Jan 15:24)
00:56:04*solexx_ doesn't have his iriver around
00:56:23linuxstbsolexx_: It's a "viewer", not a plugin.
00:56:47linuxstbi.e. you long-click on a wav file in the file browser, select "open with" and then select "mp3 encoder"
00:56:59linuxstbThat will then convert the WAV to an mp3.
00:57:00***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
00:57:43solexx_linuxstb: thanks for the clarification
00:58:01solexx_I will try it.
00:58:12linuxstbviewers are just a special type of plugin - which is why most people just call it a plugin.

00:59:37mirakCannot access memory at address 0x222f1e
00:59:53mirakhuh. How can I not acces to that memory ?
01:00:30mirakwhen you run the simulator you don't have a 32meg static ram ?
01:01:42linuxstbNo, the memory will just be parts of your PC's memory.
01:02:13mirakbut the simualtor is in charge of allocating it ?
01:02:41mirakor you must use real mallocs ?
01:03:02linuxstbNo, you don't use real mallocs. get_plugin_buffer and get_audio_buffer will return buffers of approximately the right size.
01:04:03mirakhow is it possible that when I pass variable to a function, the input parmater is not the same when inside of that function ?
01:04:31mirak$7 = (unsigned char *) 0x822d4c0 "n\024" is transformed to a $12 = (unsigned char *) 0x2 <Address 0x2 out of bounds>
01:04:50miraklinuxstb: have you faced that one day ?
01:05:01linuxstbNo, I never use gdb
01:05:23linuxstbWell, I just use it to backtrace segfaults sometimes.

03:53:32linuxstb_Yes. It seems to work reliably now.
03:53:50linuxstb_Give it another go...
03:54:05*BHSPitMonkey is reluctant.
03:54:28linuxstb_Go on, it's easy to backup and then restore your ipodloader2 installation.
03:56:20BHSPitMonkeyis the rockbox bootloader any different? because i already have that image made...
03:57:23linuxstb_No, I think it's the same.
03:57:37BHSPitMonkeyit didn't work too well for me last time ( the bootloader )
03:57:54BHSPitMonkeyi switched a variable so that apple would be default and only rockbox worked
03:57:56linuxstb_Yes, it still has problems loading retailos. This just seems to be a Nano problem though.
03:58:05BHSPitMonkeynot variable, but call
03:58:53linuxstb_See, you are a C programmer. You can add rockbox support to ipodloader2...

05:37:55linuxstb_Colour support in Rockbox is still relatively new. You can't change the colours without editing the source.
05:38:07linuxstb_And to answer the next question - firmware/export/lcd.h
05:38:19BHSPitMonkeyno thanks, i don't plan to
05:38:31linuxstb_But it's being worked on - mainly by iriver H300 users

05:57:25Rob2222_cant i checkout the BL anonymous?
05:57:41linuxstb_BHSPitMonkey: I disagree. If you want to charge, you hold MENU whilst inserting the USB cable. Otherwise Rockbox will attempt to reboot into USB mode.
05:58:01linuxstb_This way, there are no button presses if you want USB mode, and one button press if you want to charge.
05:58:25linuxstb_Rob2222_: If you checkout "rockbox-devel", the bootloader is there.

06:16:27Membrillodoes anyone know if you can take harddrives out of ipods and put them in H3xxs?
06:16:36Membrillowith a format?
06:16:48Paul_The_NerdI'm pretty sure I've heard of it being done.
06:17:21Membrillothis might be a bit of a good deal then
06:18:21linuxstb_And you could donate the ipod shell to Rockbox for dissection :)
06:18:26Paul_The_NerdIf it is what it claims to be, yes.
06:18:35Membrillono probs
06:19:00Membrilloif it does indeed work fine, i can sell my current 20gb off as a replacement HD as well...
06:20:30Membrilloi cant seem to find any threads on MR
06:21:12Paul_The_NerdI'm pretty sure the 40gb iPods use the exact same drive as the H340, but I can't remember where the source of this information in my head comes from, and it could be merely wishful thinking.
06:21:49Membrillowell, even if they do, i think i will need to find a H340 casing. It will be a struggle getting the 40gb harddrive in my h320

06:48:35linuxstb_Yes. Preferably an uncompressed file.

07:12:39linuxstb_Paul_The_Nerd: Should it work on any ipod now then?
07:12:45Paul_The_NerdI think so.
07:13:22linuxstb_They all share the same IPOD_4G_PAD define - the only real difference between them is LCD size.
07:13:22 Part ser_hades
07:13:38Paul_The_NerdHe was using BUTTON_blah all throughout it, so I changed them to DBUTTON_blah and mapped a few of them to buttons that actually exist on the ipod in an #if
07:13:45Paul_The_NerdYeah, they should work then
07:14:05Paul_The_NerdThe plugin itself is entirely text based, and doesn't use many lines at all. It also auto-centers vertically at least, so it looks decent.
07:14:12linuxstb_You could use DICE_BUTTON_BLAH - that would be more consistent with the other plugins.
07:14:21Paul_The_NerdI'll go do that then
07:15:26Paul_The_NerdSo far it only checks if CONFIG_KEYPAD==IPOD_4G_PAD
07:15:50Paul_The_NerdSo it either uses those, or what it was originally set with.
07:16:36Paul_The_NerdIt only uses up, down, left, right, on, off, and select buttons. are BUTTON_blah not defined for those on any other players?
07:17:25linuxstb_I'm not sure. There are too many targets...
07:18:23Paul_The_NerdI'll just grab some already done ones from another plugin
07:18:34linuxstb_You could check firmware/export/button.h - that defines the buttons for each target.
07:18:46linuxstb_LEFT/RIGHT are the only universal buttons I think.
07:21:57Paul_The_NerdAlright, I just grabbed 'em from bejeweled

09:46:35LinusNwow, the playlist viewer can only handle 200 tracks
09:46:44mirflethe dir cache should be saved as a file on disk after the initial generation, and then loaded from that every time you turn on your player, thus saving alot of disk spinning time. then you add an "update dir cache" option for when changes are done. you can even have rockbox automatically update it whenever it is unmounted from a pc, and after saving a recording.

09:47:43LinusNthe dir cache must be synchronized at all times

09:48:47LinusNthe user *will* forget to update the cache manually after making changes
09:49:09B4gderI agree
09:49:28mirfleif rockbox synchs it whenever IT does changes, and when it's unmounted, the only unacounted for times are when the original firmware is used to record or delete a file.
09:49:36Slasherimirfle: that will be possible allowed along with a new bootloader including eeprom support
09:50:36mirflewhat does eeprom support change (sorry for the noob question)
09:50:55LinusNSlasheri: how so?
09:50:57Slasheribootloader could mark on the eeprom if we need to rebuild the cache
09:51:06Slasheri(bootloader usb mode or loading original firmware)
09:51:08LinusNhow does the bootloader know that better?
09:51:21Slasheriit knows if the disk might become dirty
09:51:26LinusNso it will rebuld the cache if the original has been started?
09:51:54Slasheriyep, for example
09:52:00LinusNi feel that it is an unneccessary risk to save the cache like that
09:52:16B4gderhow does the code check for updates now?
09:52:27B4gderis there like a hash of the fat or something?
09:52:28LinusNit rescans every time
09:53:06mirflea hash of the fat could be a good idea
09:54:57B4gderI figure the majority of all bootups, the fat would be the exact same as the previous bootup
09:59:23mirakcan't the kernel monitor files wen rockbox is on ?
10:00:15mirakcan the cache be refreshed on exit of UMS mode ?
10:01:39B4gderyes it can
10:02:02B4gderbut when rockbox starts it doesn't know if there are new/removed files
10:04:31LinusNas long as there is an option to run the original firmware, there is a risk that the cache is incoherent
10:05:33B4gderand as long as the bootloader is somewhat independent from rockbox
10:06:02mirflewhy isn't the hash check for the fat reliable enough?

10:23:22Membrillowhy what
10:23:32linuxstb_I initially thought this would be an endian issue in the text viewer (reading shorts, converting incorrectly to a pair of chars), but there are no shorts in the viewer. So I'm guessing it's more likely to be an ATA driver bug - but how could it only affect the text viewer?

10:33:21linuxstb_I see in copy_read_sectors there are two code paths - one for reads to unaligned memory, and one for aligned. Maybe one of those is broken.

10:34:02B4gderI can't see any obvious flaw in the apps/plugin side at least
10:34:56linuxstb_I can image the unaligned reads being used in the text viewer, dircache and wps loaders, but nowhere else.
10:43:21B4gderhm yes
10:43:33B4gderSWAP_WORDS is defined for SH but not coldfire ?
10:44:04B4gderand not arm
10:44:39B4gderthat can't be right, can it?
10:45:04linuxstb_Reversing the byte order in the unaligned part of copy_read_sectors() fixes the text viewer, and the rest of Rockbox seems to work as well as before.
10:45:17amiconnIt can
10:45:23B4gderhm, the SH code doesn't use the C code
10:45:39B4gderamiconn: how?
10:45:47B4gderis the ATA switched on SH?
10:46:27amiconnATA is little endian
10:46:36amiconnSH1 is big endian, so it has to swap bytes
10:46:45amiconnARM is little endian, so no swap
10:46:45B4gderbut coldfire and SH are both big endian
10:46:48B4gderso they should use the same
10:46:52B4gderbut they're not
10:47:00amiconncoldfire is big endian, but the iriver does the swap in hardware
10:48:54linuxstb_amiconn: Do you agree that the part of copy_read_sectors for unaligned reads is currently wrong for the ipod?
10:57:12***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
10:57:32LinusNimho, the playlist viewer should always set the cursor to the currently playing track when viewing the current playlist

10:57:58CtcpIgnored 1 channel CTCP requests in 0 seconds at the last flood

10:58:24LinusNi think that changed with the multiscreen gui
10:58:56LinusNi'm changing it
10:59:58MembrilloLinusN: what do you think about an option to, while in a playlist, on pressing NAVI it navigates to the location of the current song?
11:00:46Membrillolocation as in location as a file
11:01:00LinusNcool idea
11:01:13amiconnlinuxstb_: I don't see what would be wrong there

11:01:48Membrillobut from the WPS
11:01:51BHSPitLappynite nite :(
11:02:34Membrilloinstead of going to last navigated file, could there be an option to go to the currently playing file?
11:02:57B4gderMembrillo: follow-playlist you mean?
11:03:03linuxstb_amiconn: It doesn't do the same as the aligned read. i.e. the aligned read copies a short to memory with bits 0-7 first, and bits 8-15 second. The unaligned read does it the other way around.
11:03:04amiconnMembrillo: Enable 'follow playlist'
11:03:27Membrillowhere is that?
11:03:51Membrillofound it
11:04:09amiconnlinuxstb_: The fun thing is that unaligned read does work right for iriver, i.e. big endian + hardware swap
11:04:57amiconnThat would mean little endian cpu behaves different here. Fun... would need to make some drawings to understand this
11:05:37Membrillois there a button that goes from the WPS to the playlist viewer with the current song highlighted?
11:06:08B4gderthe reason is that for unaligned, it copies the 16bits as-is without SWAP_WORDS
11:06:23B4gderbut for unaligned, it always pick either version and none is as-is
11:06:49B4gdergee i type weird
11:06:57B4gderjust ignore me
11:07:23B4gderthe first line referred to aligned and the second for unaligned
11:09:20B4gderand in little endian, the lowest bits should go into the lower byte
11:10:00B4gderthe problem is the term "swap words" as in the ARM case it isn't swapping
11:11:40Membrillodoes anyone here own shure e2c's?
11:14:57 Quit ashridah ("Leaving")
11:15:35B4gderimho, the proper fix would be to read the unaligned 16 bits first in a defined (little endian) way, and then swap the bytes if SWAP_WORDS is set

13:10:42preglowwhich will be something of a problem, seeing as how just a couple of ifs make it not boot

13:27:21preglowbut i'm not certain, so please do check further :P
13:27:23Paul_The_NerdWell, if I set i=BUTTON_MENU everything goes well
13:27:34preglowthat would be the most logical
13:27:46Paul_The_NerdWithout commenting out anything, if I just replace the key check with a pre defined key.
13:31:31peturBger: just checked the histroy, it was you... :p
13:31:52Paul_The_NerdMeanwhile, you're right, if I comment out the ifs, but leave the i=key_pressed() it also still works...
13:32:04preglowthat's probably because that code is marked as unused by gcc

14:09:39Paul_The_Nerdopto_keypad_read can be called, its return value assigned to a variable, and that variable output during the boot, and with i=BUTTON_MENU it still boots into RetailOS
14:11:57Paul_The_NerdSo, one would assume the problem lies between opto_keypad_read being called, and the return in key_pressed, but to my head that conclusion doesn't make sense.

14:12:38preglowgod knows what happens around that point
14:12:43Paul_The_NerdBut I mean, if I can call opto_keypad_read, get a value from it, *display* that value, clearly the problem isn't in it.

14:48:27Paul_The_Nerdpreglow: It's still being very weird at me. If I assign the return from opto_keypad_read() and output it things are fine. If I ever compare it, things are not fine, and it doesn't boot into retailOS.
14:49:28miraka guy helped me to debug libmpeg2. There is something that I didn't exepected .

14:51:17 Quit B4gder ("time to say moo")
14:52:03mirakI am not sure how is it possible to fix that
14:52:11Paul_The_NerdI actually just changed the assignment on i so that i=BUTTON_MENU became i=j (and j was given the value of opto_keypad_read() for my lcd_puts later)
14:52:59Paul_The_Nerdpreglow: It also seems that if I change i=BUTTON_MENU to i=0 it also ceases to work. (I don't have a rockbox.ipod on the hd. So, when it doesn't look for it, and intentionally boots into retailOS it's fine. If it does look for it, fails to find it, and then tries, it doesn't boot into retail os)
14:53:27Paul_The_Nerdthe lcd_puts was later, the j was assigned that value from o_k_r earlier.
14:54:53webguest95im a little bit scared about installing rockbox on my ipod video, how risky is it? what can go wrong?
14:55:33webguest95and i know of course that it cant play audio yet and im aware of that it is almost no meaning in instsalling it at this stage ....)

14:57:48Paul_The_Nerdwebguest95: On the plus side, it is *very* low risk. I believe the absolute worst you can do is have to resync any music/files over to it.
14:58:26preglowvery hard to break an ipod
14:58:34preglowyou more or less need to drop it

15:04:06Paul_The_NerdSonuva... I just don't get it.
15:04:06Paul_The_NerdAt all
15:05:16preglowno, me neither
15:05:54Paul_The_NerdI keep thinking "I'm overlooking something. Logic should allow me to work this out."
15:06:35preglowsure, but it's probably very low-level logic
15:06:43Membrillopreglow, do you know what mechanism apple have put on their ipod harddrives to prevent you using them on other DAPS?
15:06:55preglowMembrillo: you can't use them with other daps?
15:07:00Membrilloapparently not
15:07:07ender`ipod drives are somehow locked
15:07:25ender`apparently you can't replace the drive either
15:07:28Membrilloa guy on MR tried it apparently
15:07:45Membrilloi think you can replace it, but it has to be a legit apple drive
15:08:11ender`well, you can't replace it with an off-the-shelf drive
15:08:22Membrillowhich is dissapointing
15:08:37Membrillofecking apple. protection everywhere against everything
15:08:55preglowand for noe reason...
15:09:10ender`good reason - money, money and more money
15:09:20Membrillobut what other security features could you put on a harddrive beside a file sitting on it?
15:10:04ender`there are some ATA commands to set a password for the drive
15:10:05ender`no idea what actually needs to be done though
15:11:10Membrillothe drive wouldnt be physically different to a regular toshiba drive would it?
15:11:23 Quit aliask ("Chatzilla [Firefox 1.5/2005111116]")
15:11:24ender`no, it's a software (firmware) setting
15:12:16Membrillomaybe when the player is turned off the firmware locks it, and then unlocks it when you turn it on?
15:12:46Membrilloyou could possibly fix it by unplugging the HD while the player is on. although thats a bit risky
15:13:22Paul_The_Nerdpreglow: it gets MORE annoying
15:14:18Paul_The_NerdI can check if i==BUTTON_MENU and output Yes or No depending (using key_pressed to assign i) and then outside the if load retailOS
15:14:21markunMembrillo: I saw a website where they replaced the ipod drive by a 3.5" hdd, I don't think the drive was modified.
15:14:36Paul_The_NerdBut if I try to do it inside it, it fails.
15:14:44Paul_The_NerdLike, if I replace the output of yes with it.
15:15:00Membrillomarkun: thats interesting
15:15:05Membrilloill look around
15:16:11Membrillo "I had a 40GB Toshiba MK4004GAH"
15:16:14markunMembrillo: look at "Preparing the Hard Drive".
15:18:05markunender`: where did you read about the locked ipod drives?
15:18:51preglowLinusN: did you forget to remove debug.h from that commit? :)
15:18:53Membrillohmmm so stored in one of those partitions must be a harddrive locking system
15:19:16LinusNpreglow: yes, but that doesn't matter
15:19:35MembrilloStep666 on mistic river said: There was a thread around here a while back, in which a guy had bought an Apple-branded Toshiba drive (basically, one out of an iPod) and it wouldn't work in his DAP. Apple do something to their drives that, unfortunately, makes them incompatable with other players.
15:19:38preglowno, i can't say i see that hapening
15:19:47ender`markun: i've seen it on some forums, and one or two webshops that sell 1,8in hdds had "This drive might not work in ipod"
15:20:54markunender`: maybe they can't get it to work because of the special partitions
15:21:10Membrillothat sucks. I was going to buy a dead ipod and use the HD in my iriver
15:21:20ender`that might be possible, too - i don't have an ipod
15:21:35Membrilloi have an ipod video, but im not taking that apart
15:21:41ender`i've seen references to the ata lock feature somewhere, but those might have been just guesses

15:29:51Paul_The_NerdIt has something to do with the loading of retailos being conditional.

15:48:43preglowi expect we'll skip into this problem again sooner or later
15:48:50preglowperhaps we should try with gcc4
15:48:51Paul_The_NerdI wasn't going for a permanent solution, so much as just seeing if I could force something to happen.

15:49:23mirakthe code looks nicer

15:54:18Paul_The_NerdAh well.
15:54:53Paul_The_NerdAt least some other possibilities as to what *are* causing it have increased unlikeliness.
15:55:57Paul_The_NerdBut it irritates me that I can't cheat past it.
15:56:06preglowthat might still remove the code to key_pressed
15:56:45***Alert Mode OFF
15:56:53preglowi'll probably need to disassemble the code to see if key_pressed is called
15:57:15Paul_The_NerdWell, I tried putting an if statement in between the two lines, if(i==BUTTON_MENU) lcd_puts(0,line++,"Pressed"); and with the button pressed or not, retailOS still loaded.
15:57:23preglow'cause if it is hardware state that isn't working out for us, then it gets a whole lot easier
15:58:02preglowso you do get a proper button reading, and still manage to load retail?
15:58:18Paul_The_NerdThat was about what I said.
15:58:27preglowi'll switch to gcc4 afterwards and see if that works better
15:58:34preglowif i have time
16:02:51Paul_The_NerdTo try that would I need to do anything special, or just get gcc-4 source and build the appropriate crosscompiler, and replace my current ver with it?
16:04:13preglowthat <-
16:04:28preglowdon't need to replace it, just make sure it's before the regular one in your pathj
16:05:08Paul_The_NerdWell, I was planning on just moving the folder for 3.4.5 out of the path, then installing 4.0.2.
16:05:16preglowsounds neat

16:10:20pregloweither that or ifdef that part of dsp.c out
16:10:40Rob2222_no, i was building a debug version, youre right
16:11:01preglowif you don't need it, you might as well do a normal build
16:11:03Rob2222_thought the player will set up a logfile with interesting debug infos.
16:11:27preglowwell, unless you're a coder, you don't need it
16:11:40preglowand if you are a coder, you should have no problems with ifdeffing away the offending asm part in dsp.c
16:11:51Rob2222_i want to code... thats cause i set up the cross compiler... ^^
16:12:00XavierGrHaha Paul_The_Nerd kust like me. My schedule is so farked up that once in a while I need an all-nighter to fix it. :)

21:14:59preglowyes, we do need that

21:15:51lostlogicI volunteer... if I have the requisite whatevers you are looking for...
21:16:49tucozWell, not only this. But the ever increasing volume of patches and plugins for the colour targets needs a person with time and skill to review those.
21:17:35tucozof course, some of the plugins need to be useful on the other targets as well.
21:17:53*Moos is looking at lostlogic side :)

21:18:35BagderI'm not referring to your patches, lostlogic

21:19:00lostlogicBagder: phew! :)
21:19:18Bagderas in quick changes that work for one target, possibly break others and that are done in a way we don't approve
21:20:27NightCatI want to know basic constructions (like round, trunc, div, mod, case, repeat, while, for) shoud I look only for books or I can use C++ books?
21:21:06Bagder ?
21:21:11XavierGrYes but that's the point. I have 3 patches pending and I didn't got one simple response as to if these patches can be commited. Some patches are indeed drive-by but others are not. Someone must be able to look each one and inform the other devs if the patch is worthwhile considering.
21:21:38NightCatBagder: Yes. RB uses C. No?
21:21:40Bagderyes, we need more people to review and comment patches
21:21:53BagderNightCat: yes
21:21:55tucozXavierGr, like your battery plugin?
21:21:59Bagderis related to C?
21:22:14MoosBagder: lostlogic is volunteer :)
21:22:18lostlogicyeah, I've tried to comment on some to help people along, but of coruse I'm not a dev so my comments are just general patch etiquette stuff
21:22:18XavierGrAlso current Devs have too little time for patches and I cant every once in a while ask them too look something else.
21:23:07NightCatBagder: oh sorry is C :)
21:23:29NightCatBagder: My keyboardswitcher works fine :)
21:23:51tucozAnyway, the way things have progressed in the past (regarding devs with cvs access), will probably work fine in the future as well.
21:23:57NightCatBagder: And what you mean by "Yes"? I can use C++?
21:24:26XavierGr1) Battery benchmark, (Bger said he will look into this) 2) JPEG filescroller (I have done this 3 times with the lates beeing the best) 3) Multiple FM presets handling. All of them was commented as a nice addition (when I programmed them) but some remain in the tracker for more than 6 months
21:24:27BagderNightCat: Rockbox is C and we prefer C
21:25:01NightCatBut I think the basic constr. is the same/
21:25:22MoosXavierGr: I'm sympathize :(
21:25:24lostlogicNightCat: the basic syntax is the same, but there are definitely differences between the two.
21:25:32tucozXavierGr: regarding 2). Sounds like a good thing that you did it over again ;)
21:26:21Moostucoz: isn't you worked on latex manuel?
21:26:27NightCatlostlogic: I just can choose the book to leanr C...
21:26:27XavierGrYes the first implementation had many bugs. The last one takes all the files from the dir buffer, so no more big arrrays and such (or memory problems)
21:26:33tucozMoos: Yes, but I have very little time now.
21:27:08Moostucoz: not a complain, just wondering if it was you ;)
21:27:18tucozSo, the proposal is accessible from the webpage, but I do not have time to work on it for some weeks now.
21:27:45lostlogicNightCat: not sure I follow −− if you learn C++, you will have a big headstart on learning C, but a lot of the stuff taught in C++ beginning classes will also not directly apply basically any library functions are different between the two, the syntax is the same, there are also differences in argument passing (pointer vs. reference)
21:27:55Moostucoz: like other patchs mentioned, this usuful thing is pending

22:05:31lostlogicpreglow: that's up to you −− the changes don't cause any harm when profiling isn't activated, actually make the return path of the codec better by my standards.

22:07:06preglowbut ok, how does one profile plugins?
22:07:14preglowis that included?

22:07:35amiconn(I'm currently looking into the loader adjustment for codecs)
22:07:41lostlogicyeah, it's not activated on any plugins, but I made the header and C file needed to use it to profile part or all of a plugin
22:07:56lostlogicyou'd just have to turn on the profiling system and call the profile start and profile stop functions int he plugin api
22:08:08preglowamiconn: doesn't look like it
22:08:46preglowalso, calling a variable errno isn't very clever :-)
22:09:19preglowwe're probably never going to have any conflicts, but
22:10:06lostlogicdid I add that, or just use it when it was already used? You're quite right.
22:10:18preglowadded it inside of plugins
22:10:32preglowehh, codecs
22:10:45preglowlike i said, nothing major
22:10:53lostlogicyeah, that should be named retval or something of the sort

23:23:29preglowdoesn't look too unreasonable
23:23:52preglowbut yeah, why doesn't it work here?
23:23:56preglowdo you depend on some outside programs?
23:24:25preglowobjdump is used, i see
23:24:55lostlogicthat's the only one, and it should be standardized :-\
23:25:13preglowit's a version from 2002 here
23:25:24preglowmaybe that's what's breaking stuff
23:25:34amiconnDo you profile sim codecs?
23:25:51preglowprofiling target codecs now
23:25:52amiconnOtherwise I would expect the correct xyz-elf-objdump to be used
23:26:00preglownah, it's all elf
23:26:15lostlogicGNU objdump 2.16.1
23:26:15lostlogicCopyright 2005 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
23:26:18preglowbut yeah, okish point
23:26:32lostlogicand it's just the one from /usr/bin not m68k-elf bin
23:26:40preglowi'll try to change that
23:26:43preglowand see what happens then
23:26:48amiconnI'm no elf expert, but when I tried using standard objdump on cross-compiled targets, I got strange results
23:27:20preglowlostlogic: yup, that was your problem there
23:27:26preglowworks fine and dandy now
23:27:41lostlogicjust by upgrading, or by using m68k-elf-objdump?
23:27:53preglowby using the target objdump
23:28:02preglowhow to autodetect target is a nice question

23:29:15preglowamiconn: profile.out, the codec map file and the codec library .a file
23:29:21lostlogicI think
23:29:38lostlogicpreglow: is your host system big endian?
23:29:44preglowlittle endian
23:29:50lostlogicmine is and so is m68k
23:29:58preglowoh? what're you on?
23:30:16lostlogic... athlon...
23:30:25preglowathlon is little endian
23:30:28lostlogicor maybe... it's just the tool being able to detect it?
23:30:40preglowathlon sure as hell is little endian
23:30:47lostlogicwhen I use host-objdump, it shows: bit.o: file format elf32-big
23:30:49preglowlots of changes since binutils 2.12

23:31:18Bagderat least 'file' can tell what system the elf is for

23:32:32preglowlostlogic: still, i find it extremely weird that layer_II functions are being called
23:32:56Bagderpreglow: gcc is all GPL and LGPL so it should be fine
23:33:03preglowBagder: no, this was bsd
23:33:09preglowahh, right, yeah
23:33:25preglowbut there is a gcc license, requiring a copyright message distributed with binary releases

23:33:50Bagderwhere is it (URL) ?

23:34:14preglowyou'll see it

23:34:59BHSPitLappypreglow: anything exciting happening
23:35:07lostlogicpreglow: hah!
23:35:14preglowlostlogic: i should start making a playlist containing just one file for these tests...

23:37:26preglowokies, but what about the binary thing? why can we disregard that?
23:37:35 Part SteL
23:37:38lostlogicbecause gnu did it first? :-D
23:37:40mirakI asked that lattely, so I still ask in just in case. I call that line at two place in the code DEBUGF("mpeg2_header_sequence mpeg2dec_t size %d\n",sizeof(mpeg2dec_t)); but the sizeof value is different
23:38:04Bagderno, it only say we reproduce the copyright "in documentation and/or other materials provided with the distribution"
23:38:08preglowmirak: then you're doing something funky
23:38:10mirakhow is it possible that a type have his size changing ?
23:38:13BagderI think that is fine
23:38:22lostlogicbecause we include source?
23:38:32preglowwe don't include source with the distribution
23:38:36mirakpreglow: hum like what ?
23:38:45preglowmirak: absolutely no idea, but types don't change size, that's for certain

23:41:36Bagdergo in peace my son
23:41:42preglowgood, gnight
23:41:46lostlogicnight preglow
23:42:02Bagderamiconn: any significant improvement for us?
23:42:07Bagder(I don't remember)
23:42:19amiconnBetter seeding
23:42:39amiconnWe already discussed this some time ago, with no final decision iirc
23:43:01amiconnJust that sentence reminded me: "in documentation and/or other materials provided with the distribution"
23:43:14mirakin reality the headers of functions are useless ?
23:43:45mirakare they only usefull to create libraries ?
23:44:08Bagdermirak: what are you talking about?
23:44:53amiconnmirak: The size of a non-intrinsic type can change depending on which headers are included, because the type definition may change
23:45:06mirakI hadded a test fuction but with no header in the .h and I can call it from another .c file
23:45:21amiconnYou can try to deliberately redefine the type to something arbitrary, then gcc should complain about the clashing definitions
23:45:40amiconn..and hopefully tell you where the original definition came from
23:46:18Bagderor just compile with -E
23:46:18*amiconn has the new codec loader running in the sim and on h140
23:47:30mirakso for exemple if you use the type BLA in a struct X wich is of size 8, if you use the struct X in another .c file but that you redefined BLA to size 4, then the X struct will have a modified size ?
23:48:13mirakBagder: where do I put this -E ?
23:48:17 Quit Skydemon ("bye bye")
23:48:32Bagdergcc -E file.c > dump
23:48:44Bagderand preprocesses the file only
23:48:51mirakif the name are the same
23:49:04mirakhow can I know something have changed ?
23:49:12amiconn'Show ID3 info' really shows a lot, but the codec type is missing...
23:49:41Bagdermirak you get the preprocessed file, use search with a text editor and check
23:50:14amiconnImho the 'deliberate clash' method works faster
23:50:27Bagdermost probably, yes
23:50:41amiconngcc will (hopefully) tell you what line in which file contains the definition
23:51:06mirakamiconn: I am not sure about the clash method. How do you proceed ?

23:55:57Bagdercool for what?
23:56:34Moosfor Rockbox
23:56:45Bagderwe already have a mersenne twister
23:56:52Bagderthis is a modified one
23:56:58Bagderor rather improved
23:56:59Moosan improuved one I mean
23:57:11Bagderso the question is, what difference will it make to the ordinary user
23:57:43amiconnWell, some people reported less-than-optimal shuffling
23:57:58MoosBagder: can improvment, not be good for the user?
23:58:01Bagderis that really such a huge difference with the new one?
23:58:04amiconnI'm using the improved mersenne twister in my local builds
23:58:10lostlogicmy dice plugin would love it :-D
