00:00:03Adrianits weard
00:00:27stripwaxwho should I thank for PacBox? it's just great
00:00:35stripwax(cheers Dave)
00:00:59Adrianhey whats this mean PLUGIN_HEADER ??
00:01:51sharpeit's the plugin header... :D
00:01:55RotAtoRit's a macro that inserts the standard plugin header that every plugin needs
00:02:31Adriani foud this site but im not good in english
00:02:56 Join damaki__ [0] (
00:03:03Adrianand im not sure what its mean
00:03:22stripwaxbut I have some suggestions and questions about PacBox. e.g., why no sound, why it always boosts cpu to full, why the background is copied twice rather than just once, whether its possible to optimise lcd updates by only updating areas that are different etc
00:04:05stripwaxAdrian - what's your actual question? are you writing a plugin and it's failing to compile?
00:04:29 Quit damaki (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:04:58Adrianno i want to run a bubbles patch on my ipod
00:05:28stripwaxAdrian - and the plugin is failing to compile?
00:06:05RotAtoRno, it just needs to be recompiled for the latest version
00:07:14Adrianyes its not work
00:07:14 Quit Bger ("[BX] Become a BitchX Certified Systems Engineer today! Apply within!")
00:07:14stripwaxRotAtoR - presumably PLUGIN_HEADER needs adding too
00:07:26RotAtoRno, that's already there
00:07:35RotAtoRAdrian is just using an old .rock file
00:07:46stripwaxRotAtoR - oh! not a patch then (as he said)
00:08:05RotAtoRnope :)
00:08:49Adriani get the file from the first site of
00:09:46RotAtoRAdrian: here's a fresh compile for the ipod color
00:10:11linuxstbstripwax: Glad you like pacbox. Sound isn't implemented yet (but I probably will at some point - PIE emulated sound, but I haven't ported that part of the code). It's not realtime at the moment, even with the CPU boosted to full, so I'm not sure why you're asking about the cpu boost.
00:10:25stripwaxRotAtoR - could you do me a fresh compile for H120 while you're there? ;-)
00:10:57RotAtoRuhh, fine, i'll make a new batch of rocks.... :p
00:11:08linuxstbstripwax: And where is the background copied twice?
00:11:09RotAtoRI really should just get this thing finally committed
00:12:14stripwaxlinuxstb - renderBackground is called, and then background is memcpy'd to video_buffer. wondering why renderBackground( video_buffer ) isn't used
00:12:20Adrianok its working now
00:12:43AdrianThanks RotAtoR
00:12:51RotAtoRAdrian: no problem :)
00:12:55stripwaxRotAtoR - commit would be cool, I should be able to build myself actually so don't worry too much if you don't have time
00:13:01fantomasI like that colored rockbox LOGO at startup... How to make it to stay longer on a screen?? :)
00:13:19linuxstbstripwax: Because the sprites are rendered on top of the background, and the renderBackground() function only updates the parts of the background that have changed.
00:13:24stripwaxfantomas - slow down startup? :-d
00:13:33sharpemake a backdrop with it?
00:13:41fantomasstripwax: yeah :) its too fast on my iPod nano :)
00:13:51linuxstbstripwax: I've tried to explain it in a comment in pacbox.c
00:13:55stripwaxlinuxstb - and why wouldn't renderBackground( video_memory ) do the same thing?
00:14:10stripwaxlinuxstb - yeah, I read the comment, didn't understand it, changed the code and ran in simulator and it works the same afaict
00:14:13linuxstbBecause that contains the sprites.
00:14:50stripwaxlinuxstb - if renderBackground only renders the bits that have changed .. then what's the problem?
00:15:10linuxstbThe sprites can corrupt the background
00:15:13fantomasIs there a color version of rockbox or can I enable it somehow?
00:15:37linuxstbSo if you draw a sprite over the background, and that part of the background doesn't change, then the sprite isn't erased.
00:15:38stripwaxfantomas - er, how do you mean a 'color' version? does your mp3 player have a colour screen?
00:15:59***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
00:16:05fantomasstripwax: yes
00:16:20fantomasstripwax: I mean using different colors for different things
00:16:47 Quit Zagor ("Client exiting")
00:16:49stripwaxlinuxstb - hm, I thought you said renderBackground updates the parts that have changed .. if you draw a sprite over the background, and then the sprite moves, hasn't the background changed? or am I missing the point somehow? (like I said, I tried running in sdl sim rendering to video_buffer directly and it worked fine)

00:21:10stripwaxlinuxstb - wow, weird. that's what i would have expected to see too, which is why I was confused!
00:21:51linuxstbAre you sure you didn't forget "make install" after changing pacbox.c ?
00:22:07stripwaxmake *install* ? not just make?
00:23:03linuxstb"make install" creates/updates the archos/.rockbox/ directory
00:23:09linuxstb(where the plugins live)
00:23:31stripwaxlinuxstb - would it be faster to just memcpy the bits of the background where the sprites are, rather than memcpy the whole background each time?
00:23:52muesli__is pacman already running while using the experimental build?
00:23:52stripwaxlinuxstb - aw, crap, yeah. I probably forgot to copy it over.
00:24:15linuxstbmuesli__: It's in CVS - I have no idea if it's included in the experimental build.
00:24:28stripwaxreason I'm so interested is cos I was working on writing a puckman clone for rockbox and then discovered I don't need to bother any more :-)
00:24:38muesli__oki, will have a look
00:24:48linuxstbstripwax: Which player do you have?
00:25:05stripwaxyep, i forgot to copy of the rock. <slaps forehead>
00:25:07stripwaxlinuxstb - H120
00:25:22linuxstbOK, there's a lot of work needed there...
00:25:43stripwaxbut some friends with color ipods would definitely want to play
00:25:55linuxstbI only spent about 10 minutes getting something working before I committed it. I've been mainly testing on my ipod 5g.

00:27:09 Quit imphasing ("Lost terminal")
00:27:12muesli__where do i get packman roms?
00:27:14linuxstbYou could play with the rgb_to_gray() function in arcade.c to try and see if you can improve the use of grayscale.
00:27:28stripwaxmuesli__ - don't ask that question here. google probably knows.
00:27:59 Join imphasing [0] (
00:28:06stripwaxlinuxstb - sounds good. really I'd like to interpolate pixels a little rather than skip (although that would slow down things more of course)
00:28:55fantomasstripwax: cool stuff. Very few themes for iPod Nano though...
00:29:29stripwaxfantomas - hmm... you could start the ball rolling? ;-)
00:29:43linuxstbstripwax: You should be able to take advantage of the fact that we know exactly where the important pixels are, and display those rows and columns. Maybe via two lookup tables.
00:30:27stripwaxlinuxstb - hrm, rgb_to_gray looks slow, would be better to just render into gray to start with I reckon
00:30:51linuxstbrgb_to_gray is just used during the initialisation - so it doesn't need to be fast.
00:30:56stripwaxlinuxstb - didn't understand your last msg.
00:30:59stripwaxlinuxstb - oh
00:31:25linuxstbPacman has a palette[] array, and pacbox initialises that array with "native" Rockbox colour values.
00:32:08stripwaxlinuxstb - yeah, I meant the message before that (it was your last message while I was typing mine). the 'two lookup tables' thing. to do what, interpolation, or improve rgb_to_gray?
00:32:38amiconnmidkay_: wazzup?
00:32:52linuxstbstripwax: The interpolation - to decide which rows and colums from the Pacman 224x288 display are displayed on the Nano's screen.
00:33:03fantomasstripwax: not sure what you mean, not english native, sorry man
00:33:13stripwaxlinuxtsb - Nano? wait. huh?
00:34:11stripwaxlinuxstb - so, in that case, I'm confused by what you mean by "the important pixels". Isn't that, all of them?
00:34:22stripwaxfantomas - I just meant, you might need to design your own ..
00:34:29linuxstbstripwax: Sorry, both the Nano and H1x0 need the same scaling factor.
00:34:53linuxstbstripwax: The "important" pixels are the vertical and horizontal lines in the maze.
00:35:06SereR0KRhow can I get the Doom Plug-In work on Rockbox O.o
00:35:08midkay_amiconn, i know you're one of the few people left here with a recorder :) i just recoded the f2/f3 screens to put all the entries on seperate scrolling lines (this fixes one of the ToDos about the handling of long strings at these screens, eg german) - it's working fine, but i'm a bit nervous about committing it yet - do you approve? :) would you like to try it first?
00:35:09fantomasstripwax: ok I see now. Interesting suggestion. I'll think :)
00:35:09SereR0KRfor my iPod ^^
00:35:51stripwaxlinuxstb - ok - well, the maze walls on H1x0 kinda look a bit screwy anyway ..
00:35:56amiconnmidkay_: I'd rather see the quickscreens dropped & replaced by something more useful - maybe that's just me...
00:36:27midkay_amiconn, as would i, but that doesn't seem to be in the todo docs ;)
00:38:21stripwax"make install" is cool, and I didn't know about it. (would you believe I was doing "make zip" / "unzip..." before?) :-s
00:40:12stripwaxlinuxstb - what was your reason for inverting the screen on H1x0 by the way
00:40:16stripwax^ packbox
00:41:09linuxstbstripwax: Because I couldn't work out how not to....
00:41:31amiconnThis HD66789R datasheet is rather ambiguous
00:41:37linuxstbstripwax: As I said, the choice of colours needs more working for the h1x0
00:43:13stripwaxlinuxstb - yep. I didn't think the two were related - the palette is probably ok, but the lcd is *also* inverted, which is weird
00:44:21midkay_amiconn, i guess since neither of us seem to really care, i'll just commit it.. if it's an unwanted change, it's a simple revert
00:44:36Massa1Hi everybody, I'm also still here :-)
00:47:00stripwaxok, I'm going to hack renderBackground to check the location of sprites too and rerender those squares too
00:56:36fantomasIs there a way to use ipod Linux together with rockbox as well as with original Apple's firmware?
00:57:41stripwaxI think ipodlinux comes with a configurable boot loader
00:58:24linuxstbfantomas: Yes - both ipodloader2 and the Rockbox bootloader can triple-boot
00:59:04fantomaslinuxstb: then probably wiki is slightly out of date or I just can't find this info there :)
00:59:34linuxstbIt's not described in the Rockbox wiki.

01:01:37sharpeheh, i just had an idea for a game for rockbox...
01:01:51stripwaxwhat game
01:01:59stripwaxmy idea was a text adventure ;-)
01:02:09sharpea maze, involving one pixel. all the walls are one pixel...
01:02:26sharpemoving a red pixel around in a white maze :)
01:02:38stripwaxsharpe - hehe. what about the mono targets though? i guess the pixel could flash ...
01:02:58stripwaxthere was a stunning game back on the Spectrum called Pixy The Microdot ;-)
01:03:12sharpeit'd be hard for targets with large screens :D
01:03:53sharpeahah, i think that's what i'll work on next...

01:08:01sharpewould that be an interesting game though?

01:08:19midkay_sharpe, a maze? yes. a pixel-sized maze? hmm... ;)
01:08:44sharpeit'd be funny...
01:08:50stripwaxsounds cool to me.
01:09:06stripwaxshould be scaleable though. from 1x1 pixel to 8x8 pixel, for example
01:09:15midkay_sharpe, yes, quite funny.. but a bit small. :)
01:10:00sharpedifficulty setting, and scale setting... :)
01:10:44midkay_same thing ;)
01:11:03sharpejust to think of a name...
01:11:25stripwaxmazebox ... rockmaze ...
01:12:30midkay_mazebox. haha.
01:12:44stripwaxwell. i mean. I don't *like* the name but it's kinda obvious ;-)
01:13:02midkay_mazebox. hahaha. :)
01:13:40stripwaxlinuxstb - actually I think the fix is easy. just make renderSprite update the dirty flag for the squares in which the sprite lies. testing now..
01:13:51stripwaxdon't have a fix for inverted lcd yet tho ;-)
01:14:34linuxstbstripwax: Good idea.
01:15:17amiconnThere are quite some plugins nowadays named *box or rock*
01:15:29stripwaxamiconn - is that "good" or "bad"
01:15:32amiconnSomewhat boring...
01:15:58midkay_WAIT. i got it.
01:16:12stripwaxyeah. sharpe - call it Lost or Maze Thing or Where Now or something
01:16:18midkay_or.. wait.
01:16:27stripwaxMack is cool
01:16:41sharpeyay mack!
01:17:29midkay_wait. i got it. _yes_.
01:17:40sharpedawm direct foam is a liar. i don't get a vacuum made out of soap bubbles.
01:17:49midkay_(hushed audience; "ooooh"s all around)
01:18:25sharpeor pixel, it gives no meaning to what it's about until you start it, other than the fact that it involves pixels, but so does every other plugin.
01:18:45midkay_that's a good one.
01:18:45stripwaxsharpe - but with a scaling setting it's not really a pixel any more.
01:18:57sharpebut it still uses pixels :)
01:19:06stripwaxcos it like 'pixy' ;-)
01:19:06midkay_WAIT. Navibox.

02:03:10imphasingstripwax: er..
02:03:43imphasingIt's mostly just a single file, that gets loaded, and handles all the kernel tasks. IE, a kernel.
02:03:47imphasingSave for the WPS files
02:04:11stripwaxyeah - I'm just an idiot. I'll update my patch in one moment ..
02:04:36*imphasing is now confused
02:04:37stripwaximphasing - "rockbox" is also all the apps
02:04:49imphasingWell yeah, but it mostly consists of a kernel
02:05:05stripwaxdefine "mostly" ?!?
02:05:12JD|Unievertything bar the plugins
02:05:38stripwaxI mean, yeah, the rockbox kernel is just a kernel. but, er, huh? I mean, all the codecs are plugins. And without the codecs, there would be no sound (on modern devices). so .. still, huh?
02:05:48imphasingTake linux for exambple. The kernel just handles the very basic tasks, and the applications handle everything else. Rockbox, however, has most of it's higher up operations in the "kernel"
02:06:04sharpeit's like dos without the command prompt. :)
02:07:18imphasingI consider rockbox to be a kernel, with plugins.
02:07:26imphasingI may be way off though.
02:08:23crashdi see what you're saying imphasing
02:08:25crashdbut, what's your point?
02:08:40imphasingNo point really
02:08:44imphasingIt just makes it simpler
02:08:48stripwaximphasing - I guess that's one way of looking at it. but in that sense it's a megalithic kernel that includes drivers and user interface functions..
02:09:03imphasingrigb t
02:09:36JD|Unithe ui needs to be split off so it can be redone making it a bit nicer :p
02:09:45sharpethe sound of gears grinding to a halt imphasing? :)
02:10:04imphasingthere's no real point to what I'm saying. I'm just observing that it's a good design for something that doesn't require an exceedingly complex operating system
02:10:12imphasingsharpe: eh?

02:18:36imphasingEr..I lost it.
02:18:47imphasingIt was going to be the backlight address for the ipod

02:21:49sharpewow... when was the last time you saw a commercial for a radio station?
02:21:59linuxstbstripwax: (if you read this in the logs) Your pacbox patch gave a nice 5% speedup on my 5g. With my ASM optimisation, it's now at about 19.2 fps (so almost realtime).
02:22:11sharpejust saw one..

02:22:15sharpeand its again.
02:22:20sharpeplaying again i mean.

02:22:39sharpeso it's, radio commercial, other commercial, radio commercial.
02:23:03linuxstbimphasing: Yep :) I'm happy now.
02:23:04JD|Unilinuxstb: sounds good.. any speedups for h300?
02:23:23imphasinglinuxstb: Did you write some of the LCd code in ASM?
02:23:40linuxstbimphasing: Yes, I wrote the "rotate and copy" loop in ASM.
02:23:47imphasingah, cool
02:23:53imphasingI think that's the same one I did
02:23:58imphasingOr, now mostly josh
02:24:43linuxstbI managed a speedup from (I think) about 13.5fps to about 18.2fps. Stripwax's optimisation gave another 1fps.
02:24:44JD|Uni:'( im in my prac class and i just had the tutor checking my work, and i had || instead of != so i had to find the fix, now i have to wait ages for him to check other ppl before i can go.. :'(
02:25:04imphasingI might write something to see how man'y fps I'm getting..
02:25:11imphasingI think it's around 13
02:25:11linuxstbBut if josh has written the same function in asm, I probably wasted my time....
02:25:17imphasingbut the MAME fps meter isn't working
02:25:23linuxstbI'm not sure how you can optimise without an fps meter...
02:25:28imphasinglinuxstb: His also scales
02:25:37imphasinglinuxstb: It "seems" faster
02:25:41JD|Uniimphasing.. your doing mame for rb?

02:26:51sharpelike, a 0x7f7f7f area.
02:27:14imphasingAnd what are you doing with 24bpp color??
02:27:56JD|Unishould it be 0x007f7f7f tho?
02:28:00imphasingthat would be clear
02:28:09imphasingthe 0xff is a totally opaque alpha channel
02:28:21JD|Uniah ok.. i get ya
02:28:28sharpelovely opaqueness
02:28:57imphasingUm...I forgot all the C timing functions..
02:29:40imphasingMy fps meter is going to be really ugly.
02:29:46imphasingIt'll have to write a text file with how long it took to draw 40 frames
02:30:20sharpemake sure it's with no decimals of precision. give it an approximation to make it seem faster.
02:30:28imphasinghell yes
02:30:45JD|Uniwont writing to the hdd slow it down?
02:30:57imphasingbut it'll only do that when it's done
02:30:59sharpewait, no, make it seem slower, then eventually introduce fixes for it, so you seem like you're improving the whole thing
02:31:08imphasingit'll only takes 2 more instructions per frame
02:31:34JD|Uniand doesnt drawing the framerate onto the lcd slow the update down also? isnt text really slow to draw?
02:31:48imphasingI don't do that
02:31:53imphasingI just record a start time
02:31:55imphasingand an end time
02:31:57JD|Unino i mean on regular fps meters
02:32:00imphasingand have it only display 40 pixels
02:32:10imphasingand when the 40 pixels are done, I take the difference
02:32:12imphasingwrite it to a file
02:32:18imphasingthen do the calculations myself
02:32:23imphasing<−− cheap hack
02:32:31sharpebut it gets the job done

02:43:32linuxstbimphasing: I've just commited my pacbox optimisations to CVS.
02:43:43*imphasing checks it out
02:43:56midkaylinuxstb, did/do you have pacbox graphics trouble in a few places? notably pacman animation?
02:44:27JD|Unilinuxstb: should your optimizations help on the h300?
02:46:03linuxstbmidkay: Can you explain what you mean?
02:46:33linuxstbJD|Uni: My only optimisation was an ARM assembler function. But stripwax's optimisation should help.
02:46:54JD|Uniok, ill wait for it to compile and let u know
02:47:24sharpeanyone have any ideas for me?
02:47:24midkaylinuxstb, pacbox for me (a build from earlier today), when pacman moves around, the animations don't look correct (should be eating the dots, but it seems like the yellow circle just moves/stretches around) - it looks good for you?
02:47:58JD|Unisharpe: make the rec buton on the h300 usable? and user configurable
02:48:35sharpei don't have a h300...

03:57:09sharpefor what? :)

04:07:38sharpeso, how's the frame rate thing going?
04:11:25midkaysharpe, how's zip.rock!? :)
04:11:41sharpehow'd you guess it was named that?
04:12:06sharpewell, it's 2.33kb
04:13:06sharpeand it extracts uncompressed files...
04:13:21sharpeand gracefully tells you if it doesn't support said compression
04:13:37sharpewhich is any...
04:13:44sharpebut still, it's somewhat cool.
04:13:58midkayhaha. cool. :)
04:14:20midkayany plans to add decompression?
04:14:48sharpebut the problem is, i can't find any examples of it
04:14:58sharpeeverything, goes back to zlib or gzip
04:15:00midkayjust commited wormlet for all bitmap LCD models.. *crosses fingers for no compile errors*
04:15:19midkayuntested on everything except ipod 5g and archos recorder.. probably going to be swamped with errors. but anyways.
04:15:25midkayhm. :(

04:18:50midkayyellow and red across the table

04:21:48midkaysharpe, yes

04:22:04sharpehey, i could fix that warning for the build for the video!

07:53:43midkaymorning amiconn :)
07:55:02amiconnmidkay: (1) Why did you move 'wormlet.c' from its place in SOURCES?
07:55:14amiconnIt was at the alphabetically correct place...
07:55:20midkayamiconn, what?
07:55:31midkayi needed to to get it to work on all targets..
07:55:34midkayi think..
07:55:56midkayyes. that. :)
07:55:57amiconnIt was at the correct place (within the #ifdef HAVE_LCD_BITMAP,
07:56:17amiconnjust within an additional #ifdef to only build it for recorders
07:56:31amiconnThis is the only thing you'd had to change (or remove)
07:56:40midkayamiconn, my bad - when i saw it sitting there i thought it was a quick hack i did to get it to compile for the 5G without setting up the correct cases..
07:57:12amiconn(2) If you wonder why your colour setting doesn't work - you're using a wrong #ifdef
07:57:25amiconnCOLOR_LCD doesn't exist, it's called HAVE_LCD_COLOR
07:57:34midkayamiconn, i defined COLOR_LCD manually..
07:57:45midkayi guess in retrospect HAVE_LCD_COLOR would have been smarter. :)
07:58:53JdGordoncan any1 help me get gcc compiling for the sh-1 targets?
07:59:42amiconnJdGordon: You need to use the newlib workaround
07:59:50JdGordoni did
08:00:10JdGordonits complaing about missing standard header files... but they are there and half of gcc built fine already
08:00:16midkayamiconn, that's weird, i never noticed it was set up in that way..
08:00:41midkayamiconn, do you know why bejeweled and bounce are sitting there?
08:01:13amiconnHmm? They start with 'b' and are for all bitmap targets...
08:01:21LinusNJdGordon: then you didn't do the newlib fix correctly
08:01:32amiconn*You* move wormlet up there...
08:01:41JdGordonhey LinusN
08:01:48JdGordonyes i did.. but ill do it again..
08:02:07amiconnJdGordon: After adding the symlink you need to 'configure' again
08:02:12midkaymy bad again, i didn't realize the very top listing was for players too. :)
08:02:18JdGordonah.. ok.. thats not in the wiki
08:02:25midkayquite amazing how many times i've looked at this and never noticed these patterns :)
08:02:43amiconnmidkay: Line 1 (!): /* plugins common to all models */
08:02:55midkayamiconn, i see that now
08:03:22midkayHAVE_LCD_COLOR is an ifdef, right?
08:03:29amiconnJdGordon: Better scrap the whole 'gcc' build dir and start over
08:03:59amiconnmidkay: Yes, it's a true/false macro (exist/doesn't exist)
08:04:41amiconnLinusN: Could you test my H300 lcd init stuff?
08:05:23midkayamiconn, i just committed a fix - thank you
08:05:51JdGordonLinusN: any reason the open with patch hasnt been added yet? still tihnking of a better method for it?
08:05:52amiconnIt appears to work correctly, but I can't test whether it does the init correctly at the actual cold-start (obviously)
08:08:14LinusNamiconn: what init stuff?
08:09:49LinusNJdGordon: iirc, it would solve the problem with having dual-function plugins in two places?
08:10:08JdGordonwhich would?

08:11:30LinusNJdGordon: well, i'd like to know why there are duplicates in the first place

08:12:13amiconnIt's not in the tracker... I should put it there

08:22:13midkaywas expected to finish ten minutes ago
08:22:58amiconnBtw, I did remove all references to the undocumented bits. Doesn't seem to have any effect, maybe this was done to confuse RE people?
08:26:51amiconnt0mas? Bagder?
08:27:24LinusNamiconn: i doubt it, i think it might be trial-and-error remnants, or they might be necessary on the other type of h300 lcd
08:27:49 Join damaki_ [0] (
08:28:13amiconnLinusN: Do we know a unit with this other type?
08:28:42LinusNno, i have only heard that jungti guy talking about them
08:29:04amiconnMaybe it's only a different panel?
08:29:19LinusNi guess we'll find out :-)
08:31:01amiconnThe original init sequence does a couple of other silly things,
08:31:04amiconnlike setting values that aren't needed at all (the compare thing - we use simple replace op)
08:31:32amiconnsetting the same value twice in the same block
08:32:40amiconnsetting different "sub-values" within a register where only other bits in that register should be changed
08:34:25amiconnI also compared the lcd-back-on behaviour of the original firmware and rockbox. If the lcd content is dark (e.g. showing a jpeg which doesn't fill the whole screen - black border), both produce a short flash of white
08:34:41LinusNamiconn: i guess they didn't read the data sheet as thoroughly as you did
08:35:53amiconn...but the flash is shorter in rockbox, and it also doesn't show the instability in pixel brightness at the left border which I oserved in the original firmware
08:36:59JdGordon:'( hdd is full
08:37:07JdGordondamn this is getting annoygin
08:38:17LinusNthe new distributed build system is fast - when it works...

08:39:03JdGordonis a 3gb hdd image too big?
08:39:08amiconnLinusN: line 162/163: The number of lines isn't invalid, it's a mistake in the datasheet...

08:41:20aliaskA little while ago I was playing around with rockbox on the iPod, and everything was so much faster than on the H300's. I'm just wondering why this is...
08:41:48 Quit damaki__ (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
08:41:52amiconn page 32: The lower part of the table should read 11xxx. Easy to find out by filling in the missing part...
08:43:29amiconnNL4-0 == (number_of_lcd_lines - 8) / 8
08:46:22LinusNaliask: maybe it's because the ipod is clocked at a higher freq, and maybe the lcd is faster?
08:46:55aliaskIt was most noteable while adding large numbers of files to a playlist, something I would have thought which was hard drive dependent.
08:47:32amiconnI guess it's because the fat driver/ file system doesn't need to byte-swap
08:47:48amiconn..and maybe the raw ata read is faster too
08:48:17CtcpIgnored 1 channel CTCP requests in 0 seconds at the last flood
08:48:17*amiconn should do some asm magic to iriver ata read/write
08:48:29*aliask would love you forever :)
08:49:09JdGordonwhy the heck is it taking soo much longer to compile gcc for sh than it did for m68k ?? :'(
08:49:21aliaskiPods seem to be nicer devices, except for the input. Number of buttons and the whole clickwheel thing...
08:51:22LinusNJdGordon: it builds newlib
08:58:54JdGordonmmm... dinner smeels goood :D
08:58:59*JdGordon is having steak :D
08:59:14 Nick _kclaf is now known as kclaf (
08:59:38LinusNi tested some asm magic for the iriver ata driver, and it boosted the performance quite a lot
09:00:12LinusNbut i lost the code somehow
09:00:34JdGordonhaha.. that sux
09:01:08LinusNnot that it was complicated though
09:01:10amiconnLinusN: I was about to ask you about your burst reading...
09:01:35amiconnWell, there are basically 2 cases: 16 bit aligned and not 16 bit aligned
09:01:45LinusNand cache aligned
09:01:55LinusNsorry, burst aligned
09:02:08amiconnThat can be corrected if not aligned right from the start
09:02:19amiconnThen the code flow is similar to memset
09:02:23LinusNmy code didn't do that
09:02:35amiconn(one address is fixed, the other is running)
09:02:38LinusNi just made it as a test
09:02:59LinusNthe test plugin had a cache aligned buffer
09:03:40amiconnWhat really hit me back when doing memcpy() is that all the bitshifting involved with an 8-bit offset still pays of when dealing with DRAM
09:04:35amiconnOne move.l, two shifts, and one or.l per longword...
09:09:43LinusNsdram is sloooow
09:11:30LinusNand it's 16-bit
09:11:43LinusNand the bus freq is half the cpu freq
09:14:07LinusNso a non-burst sdram write would take 10 cpu cycles

09:17:57moda|DOOFis there anyway to convert truetype fonts for use with rockbox?
09:19:41safetydanmoda|DOOF, if you use FontForge I think that can open ttf files which you can then export
09:20:12moda|DOOFexport to bdf or whatever rockbox uses?
09:20:20amiconnLinusN: A longword write already is a burst access. The bus controller can do 2-byte (for 8-bit areas), 4-byte and 16-byte bursts
09:20:29amiconnFor some reason no 8-byte bursts
09:20:40safetydanmoda|DOOF, I assume bdf
09:20:46safetydanthere might be a thread on misticriver about it
09:21:18LinusNamiconn: but does that apply to the sdram controller?

09:30:02amiconnWhat gcc did you use? Did you build plain cvs?
09:31:20JdGordongcc 3.3.6 yup, plain cvs
09:31:46amiconnWhat newlib did you use for the trick?
09:32:01amiconn1.14 here
09:32:24JdGordonshould i do it all again with 1.14? filesize is a big thing for sh targets isnt it?
09:33:17amiconn..but I don't know whether this rather big difference is because of newlib only
09:33:23moda|DOOFwhat kinda font does rb use?
09:33:30amiconnThe numbers remind me of gcc 3.4.x...
09:33:31B4gdermoda|DOOF: its own format
09:33:31LinusNamiconn: how do you do 2 word accesses without fetching an instruction in between?
09:33:45moda|DOOFB4gder: anyway to convert ttf to rb font then?
09:33:49JdGordon... well it might be coz i was too lazy to restart the build after adding the newlib fix.. so that could be why...
09:33:54B4gdermoda|DOOF: we convert from BDF
09:33:57amiconnLinusN: What do you mean?
09:34:01B4gderso convert your ttf to bdf first
09:34:04amiconnFor the speed comparison?
09:34:14moda|DOOFhaving trouble finding a program to do that
09:34:25amiconnWell, the instructions are cached after the first loop iteration...
09:34:32B4gdermoda|DOOF: peopel have mentioned converters in the past

09:35:26amiconnIt doesn't matter.
09:35:28moda|DOOFfine then, ill go try this fontforge dealy thingo

09:44:36amiconnLinusN: There must be slight differences between the same cross-gcc on cygwin and linux
09:45:18amiconnFor some reason, an ajbrec.ajz compiled with gcc 3.3.6 on cygwin has a slightly different size than an ajbrec.ajz compiled with gcc 3.3.6 on linux
09:45:31amiconnBoth built using the same newlib 1.14 for the trick

10:51:25Paul_The_NerdSereR0kR: If you plan to play much doom, maybe better off triple booting anyway. The controls aren't really optimal yet.
10:51:36Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: ~25 as of yesterday.

10:52:16linuxstbPaul_The_Nerd: So it could be possible to get it running at 30fps then...
10:52:44Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: Sure, weak up the cop, and dedicate it exclusively to that plugin, and you're done. :-P
10:52:54linuxstbNot even that :)
10:54:02Paul_The_NerdBut yeah, I'm sure 30fps is not an unreasonable goal
10:54:05linuxstbPaul_The_Nerd: When you have some time, can you change the "#define FPS" at the top of pacbox.c from 20 to 30 and see how many FPS it can achieve then?
10:54:52Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: As soon as this build of GCC gets done, I'll try it out. I'm setting up an SH1 cross compiler (I'm hoping to convince my brother to give/loan me his AJBR since it's just gathering dust)

11:19:27moda`yea, how do i run it and convert fonts then?

11:20:34Paul_The_Nerdmoda': You do know how to run a program, right?
11:20:46Paul_The_NerdIt's a .exe, so this should be "basic computer use" at this point

11:24:41linuxstbpreglow: That's probably easiest. I'm assuming you've spotted a few things then....
11:26:01preglowone thing so far, but i was wrong about it :(
11:26:32moda`<Paul_The_Nerd> It's a .exe, so this should be "basic computer use" at this point <−−- erm. executed normally in windows, it wants a cygwin1.dll, and i dont know what else to do :(

11:29:25moda`and now my problem is that the file isnt right
11:29:28moda`woo, back to fontforge
11:29:32Paul_The_NerdOkay, GCC 3.3.6 officially takes forever to build with that newlib trick on my computer. Maybe it'll be done sometime this week.
11:30:45c0uttalinusn: i must have missed something - i increased the CONFIG_BLOCK_VERSION and increased max_files_in_playlist to 16 bits
11:31:08LinusNc0utta: yes?
11:31:31c0uttalinusn: same result as before with 15 bits
11:31:41moda`what should the bdf resolution be?
11:31:48LinusNyou mean you can't set it higher in the settings?
11:32:16c0uttai increased in via the cfg file

12:33:58linuxstbSereR0kR: The firmware is the Firmware-??? file you've copied from the iPod updater. You can just the diskdump utility to write that file to your iPod.
12:34:08tucozDo we need the feature comparison between the stock firmwares and Rockbox in the manual? I thing I will remove that section.
12:35:11linuxstbtucoz: I think it would be nice to include it - but it would obviously need a separate table for every target, so it's a lot of work.

12:54:55SereR0kROK I got a Windows formatted iPod now I think -.-
12:55:00ironi_so do i dare to put rockbox on my new ipod?
12:55:28ironi_is it there parallell with the original firmware
12:55:31ironi_or does it overwrite it
12:55:36Mikachuyeah, you can dualboot
12:55:40Mikachuyou can even tripleboot ipl if you want
12:55:54ironi_ok so i install some kind of boot loader
12:56:15Mikachuyeah, there are good instructions on rb's page

13:33:56JdGordonpetur: was it you who was interested in the colinux setup?
13:34:48peturinstalled it but haven't looked at why it doesn't access the dns servers
13:35:18JdGordonim doing it atm, (fixed my ssh problem, so it works), ive got the m68k and sh-1 compilers going, and im about to do arm, so if u want the image...
13:36:00peturdon't know if I have time this week, and I'm on holiday next week :) so.. maybe :D
13:38:36JdGordonthe only thing that will annoy me about it is its not so easy moving files between the host and colinux... not like cygwin
13:38:56peturI feared that...
13:39:17JdGordonamiconn: still there?
13:39:18peturcan't you map a windows share or something like that?
13:39:47Mikachushould be possible to set up a samba share
13:39:51JdGordonu can for sure do it over samba... i tihnk it has a thing where u can mount a folder on the host as a hdd.. so im gonna look into that
13:40:27kclafwhat are the advantages of setting up colinux ?
13:40:37JdGordonmy build time halved
13:40:39peturfaster builds?
13:40:40kclafis it only compilation speed ?
13:40:53kclafso i dont really need that i guess
13:41:03JdGordonand u have a full linux distor going on your host comp.. not a half-assed job like cyg

13:45:31ironi_can i brick my ipod?
13:45:34*amiconn will rebuild sh-elf-gcc on all 3 machines, then do comparison builds
13:45:37JdGordonpetur: yup
13:45:55B4gderironi_: no, the ipod is pretty safe from the brick risk
13:45:58Paul_The_NerdI'm going to have to leave a sticky note with instructions for my grandchildren to type "make install" when it finishes in about 40 years.
13:46:12Mikachuironi_: you can hold something when you boot to start an emergency disk mode that isn't affected by anything you do
13:46:13amiconn(all 3 meaning cygwin, debian-testing-x86 and debian-testing-amd64)
13:46:23Paul_The_Nerdironi_: The very very worst you can do is require a reformat with the apple restore utility.

13:46:38ironi_Paul_The_Nerd: ah ok, then it's no worries.
13:47:30Paul_The_Nerdironi_: To install future apple firmware updates, the easiest way will be to restore the bootpartition.bin you extract during the install process, then update, then repeat the bootloader install process extracting a new bootpartition.bin, *but* ideally you'll only use rockbox so you'll never care what version of Retail OS is on there anyway
13:48:05ironi_well I have to try it

13:49:18Paul_The_NerdI've been using rockbox exclusively on Nano since about 15 minutes after linuxstb told me they had sound working. ;-)

13:50:05Paul_The_NerdYeah, I have the patch to boot into retail on USB insert, instead of Disk Mode.
13:50:15ironi_Paul_The_Nerd: but how about battery time
13:50:25ironi_Paul_The_Nerd: and with video i would like ot be able to watch videos :)
13:50:56ironi_hmm should i install the ipodlinux stuff
13:51:09Paul_The_Nerdironi_: Yeah, with video you'll be booting into retail for that. As for battery time, I get enough on my nano, but it's still like.... probably 2/3 of the retail's battery life for my nano
13:51:16ironi_but then there is more of a chance for failure i guess
13:51:20Mikachuironi_: taht's up to you, but if you do you should probably do it first
13:51:28ironi_i see.
13:51:44Paul_The_NerdMikachu: I installed iPodlinux after without problems
13:52:00Paul_The_NerdThough installing it first, and using their loader2 is probably the *easiest* way
13:52:06Mikachucan be annoying if you need to resize the fat partition, i'm not sure how easy that is
13:52:48ironi_well one could aways return it to default state and then install ipodlinux and then rockbox
13:52:56Paul_The_NerdI deleted iPL anyway... I mean, I use it for music. It didn't really offer me anything useful in that category
13:52:58ironi_that si when ipodlinux is stated to be safe for 5g ipods :)

14:19:30tucozMikachu, well, emacs told me to save it as either utf8,utf16 etc and I selected utf8
14:19:58Mikachudo you have a line like \usepackage[something]{fontenc} ?
14:20:24Mikachui think that's what tells latex what encoding to expect, but i'm not 100% sure
14:20:31tucozMikachu, yes. I have \usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
14:20:42Mikachuthen you most likely want the file to be in latin1 :)
14:20:48Mikachualso called iso-8859-1
14:20:55Mikachuor ISO8859-1 or without any dashes

14:56:18preglow_ironi_: we've only got a vague idea of how the chip workls
14:56:31_ironi_no docs, aye?
14:57:11Mikachuthey have this chip in nanos too?
14:57:27Paul_The_NerdJust the video
14:57:43_ironi_its quite a bit device the video
14:57:49Mikachuit would seem stupid to have a chip to decode mp3 in hardware when the cpu can do it :)
14:58:21imphasingThe retailos firmware ahs the ability to add new codecs, apple has hinted at, so it can probably decode anything you can throw at it, if you write it.
14:58:37imphasingI think it only decodes video, but I could be wrong..
14:58:42imphasinglisten to preglow.
14:59:08B4gderthe cpu certainly can't do video decoding at the speed the broadcom can
14:59:25Mikachuthat's why i asked about the nano

15:01:43_ironi_hehe well i do like this that i sell my old stuff and buy new
15:01:48_ironi_so it turns out even
15:01:51imphasingSo how did "they" (Not sure who got the video chip working first, you guys or iPL) figure out what MMIO port to send LCD data to?
15:01:56imphasingJust probing random ports?
15:02:59Mikachumore likely they looked at the firmware and tried various addresses in the code or something

15:03:19tucozB4gder, do you know why the manual build-script copies the entire manual source tree to the destination?
15:03:35tucozinstead of just the pdf
15:03:58B4gderwhen you do what?
15:04:49tucozWhen I write make
15:05:02tucozit creates a directory under that level called manual
15:05:22tucozwith the entire source tree and pdf file under that directory
15:06:20tucozand the configure script checks for the cross-compiler when selecting a manual build.

15:09:53B4gdertucoz: I agree
15:10:19B4gderI'd guess the copying is made because if you'd run the build in the source dir it would create temp files in there
15:10:44Mikachu-output-directory=DIR use DIR as the directory to write files to
15:10:47tucozB4gder, ah, you're probably right about that.

16:46:30tucozAnd to keep track of all the people eventually writing patches for inclusion will be a hard task
16:46:59safetydanpreglow, oh man... that stuff just hurt my brain... I think I had a working cordic implementation but no idea of speed
16:47:16safetydanprecision was up to the number of iterations, it was something like 1 bit of extra precision per iteration
16:47:45preglowit always is with cordic

16:49:38preglow'cuz that's pretty much what i'll need
16:49:40safetydanin theory yes
16:50:11preglowi can probably make a tons faster one with a bigger lookup table, but i don't want a huge lookup table
16:50:54safetydanfrom what I read, the FPU of the 386/486 used a cordic implementation for sin and cos
16:51:30safetydanthe lookup table for the cordic was the same size as the number of iterations. it's a very cool little algorithm
16:51:40preglowhardware usually uses cordic
16:51:42lostlogicsafetydan: preglow: cordic is iterative, so couldn't you combine a moderate precision lookup table with cordic to get reasonable speed and the accuracy you need?
16:53:32preglowi guess so
16:53:47preglowthe lookup table step would have to be precise to a known number of bits, though
16:56:55preglowbut anyway

17:45:37bobTHCJust want to make a suggestion : creating a public relation team to engage more devs and betatesters and make connections with hardware suppliers (low level hardware and why not some Mp3 device companies)
17:45:40t0masmaybe we should get the website updated...
17:46:33bobTHCIt's an old discussion but imho it's time now, 1st because the project attain a good maturity, 2nd because new targets coming will spread rockbox like never previoulsy, 3th because every new port need a big workload (brandnew volunteer devs and perhaps some companies will effeciently help us)
17:46:39t0masand get some publicity with the next release
17:46:52t0masbetter release cycles are a topic for devcon...
17:47:22bobTHCrockbox needs a spin doctor team !!!

17:49:40t0masget better documentation (tucoz is already working on that :D)
17:49:55t0masget sime pictures etc...
17:50:02t0masand make a website that "sells" the software
17:50:58t0masbobTHC might be the one to do it ;)
17:51:02t0masas I don't have that much time
17:51:07Paul_The_NerdWell, at the moment the software only exists in a release version for Archos' anyway.
17:51:28t0masyeah. that should also change :)
17:51:39t0maswe might want to do all this on a new release
17:51:42t0masincluding iriver
17:51:54t0masand then work to a more 3.0 graphical release
17:52:36t0masand introduce that with some "flash factor" just screenshots on the website... the "happy user comments" and an easy explaination on how to install from windows
17:52:40Paul_The_NerdI'm not so sure about that, but it does seem that at least a roadmap of goals for the next few releases might be a nice thing to come out of devcon.
17:53:38t0masa website change might be nice too... make it a product selling website, with 1 menu option "Development" and put all CVS things etc there...
17:54:07t0maswe have last CVS commits on the frontpage now... I like it, but some random users is not interested in CVS commit messages...

17:55:37bobTHCof course
17:55:41t0masmaybe they don't want to "sell rockbox to the public"
17:56:06t0masmaybe they just like the hacking... and want to attract other developers, instead of the simple users :)
17:56:51Paul_The_NerdBut is there a product for mass markets? I mean, at the moment I'd say rockbox counts as a hobbiest/enthusiast piece of software.
17:57:15Paul_The_NerdMaking the page more flashy, and less dutiful, seems to work in the opposite direction of attracting devs.
17:57:16bobTHChehe, with the new orientation of the project ( multi patform)the goal is not only to attract users but devs and supporters companies too
17:57:43t0masand companies normally want to sell things ;)
17:58:08t0masso they would like to be able to send people to rockbox, which makes those people really want that software
17:58:21t0masthen the company can sell those people their hardware
17:58:27t0masmaybe even with rockbox pre-installed
17:58:39t0mas(don't know how that is done license technically?)
17:58:56t0masbut hey... those are very far future plans :)
17:59:02bobTHCnot only, imagine a companie who simply want doing a plugin to make his files "suitable" with rockbox like a viewer or codec
17:59:08lostlogicI'm a big fan of it staying a hacking project... FWIW isn't very exciting

17:59:51bobTHChacking is the core of this project, without hacking no more project lostlogic
18:00:31lostlogicMy last serious involvement with an OS project was Gentoo Linux, and once it went more public and gained more users and a release manager, it became a pain in the butt to work on and the fun factor went down, and a lot of the original devs (ie me) became less involved and less interested.

18:10:09Paul_The_Nerdt0mas: But at the moment, the iPod port needs to actually *work* completely first.
18:10:13t0masyes, spread the word... try to make the website a little more user attractive (move dev. stuff to ? that doesn't bother most devs I guess? Ad long as there is a link on the front page)
18:10:20lostlogicpreglow: not sure, I think they asked me questions for it once
18:11:03t0masand having a selling website doesn't really cost us much of the hacking culture we have
18:11:10t0masbut it's way more newbie attractive
18:11:11bobTHCof course , everething is not for public, but public teased can be a big force for the project (work, money, support...)
18:11:16lostlogicPerhaps the solution would be to have rockbox stay just as it is, and found a new project that will cut and stabilize releases completely independently?
18:11:38bobTHCnaa, forks sucks
18:11:43t0maslostlogic: that sounds like a really bad idea...
18:11:53webguest01I have shown Rockbox to my friends that have dap's, they own ipods mainly, and they really aren'y interested in playing different file formats, and drag and drop and look upon it as a hack by some programmers
18:11:54t0masif you attract people, do it with the name "rockbox"
18:12:06t0masif people find out it's open source... we might also attract more devs
18:12:28t0maswebguest01: that's what we might want to change...
18:12:40bobTHCwebguest01 > i can says the total opposite
18:12:45t0masget the website user friendly... and eventually try to get a more graphical 3.0 release for example
18:13:06*Paul_The_Nerd would really rather not have a graphical release.
18:13:09lostlogicpreglow: *giggle* that was a long time ago.
18:13:09webguest01yhey are very sceptocal that soemone else other than the OEM can write good software for their players
18:13:15*Paul_The_Nerd is incredibly fond of the very simple interface it currently has.
18:13:55Paul_The_NerdA graphical UI doesn't really *add* anything.
18:14:04webguest01when I mention gapless, the look at me blankly, it doesn't mean a thing
18:14:21Mikachuwhen i told a friend about it the first thing he asked about was gapless
18:14:36webguest01Replay Gain, the same thing, not interested
18:14:46t0masI mainly use it at parties atm...
18:14:56bobTHCa lot of ppl without programmer skills download and use differents formats, are happy to be able to play games or to have more sound tweak
18:15:19webguest01if it entails fiddling with a computer, they loose interest, most folks want to keep fiddling with a computer to a minimum
18:15:31t0maswebguest01: that's where we need a windows installe
18:15:59Paul_The_NerdAnd a lot of people *like* their iTunes.
18:16:06t0masfor ipod that's true
18:16:15t0masbut the iriver firmware just sucks imho
18:16:18bobTHCand a lot *hate* it too
18:16:22Paul_The_NerdWhile this sentiment completely baffles me, most iPod users seem to prefer never having to deal with their files directly.
18:16:22t0masand it has nothing like it...

18:18:20webguest01people want plug and play, they don't want to fiddle with an os

18:18:59HClLynx: fragmentation?
18:19:30HClhow's Slasheri 's tagcache thing going?
18:19:31LynxHCl: no, its a very steady 3.5 mb/sec, and was faster just this morning.
18:19:54bobTHCof course, webguest01, we aren't saying oki, now lets go ppl you can do easyly what u want, but we're talking about making the project more famous and involving more ppl and at the end really have a powerfull and easy firmware compatible with the maximum of devices
18:23:31Paul_The_NerdI think it's going to be quite a while yet before rockbox is *ready* for publicity on any decent scale
18:23:32XavierGrLynx: 12 mb/sec is okay. I get 13 from mine
18:23:56webguest01depends on what your market you want to capture, if you want the Rbox to become a replacement for original on an average users player, then it needs to become more user friendly, then there is also the lag time between Rbox and new players. Rockbox for obvious reasons doesn't support the latest players, and this is a problem
18:23:57Paul_The_NerdA lot of iPod users won't want to change over until there's almost no disadvantage to doing it
18:23:57bobTHCthat's the goal and is far away but with different ppl like devs(web, os specific, target specific...), ergonomist, spin doctor, documentations writers.....
18:24:57bobTHCand a lot complain about it, too
18:25:35 Join imphasing_ [0] (
18:26:03Paul_The_NerdThe vast majority of people who buy an ipod though, got it because they wanted an ipod. They either use itunes, or just like the fact that they don't have to understand computers to use digital music. Rockbox really isn't targeted at the layperson.
18:26:19webguest01basically people want their players to play music, they aren't interested in fiddling with them, and most of the original firmware meets this requirement
18:27:13XavierGrhmm... I can't get dircache to work properly. It is set to on rebooted but still...
18:28:16imphasing_I like ipod's becuase it's a good way to play with an ARM7TDMI processor, and it's elegant
18:28:29Mikachui won mine
18:28:47imphasing_The ipod with rockbox, is like the perfect music player
18:28:54imphasing_FLAC support, drag and drop music..
18:28:55webguest01imagine the level of support that would be required with Rockbox in its current form and a wider non adventurous user base
18:28:56imphasing_It's great.
18:28:58XavierGrelegant? I can't agree on that...
18:29:04imphasing_XavierGr: No?
18:29:06Paul_The_Nerdimphasing_: The iRiver iFP-7xx and 8xx use an ARM7TDMI too if I recall. :-P
18:29:06bobTHCthe vast majority of ppl who buy a MP3 players will understand the pro and the cons between rockbox and original firmware if it's clearly explained and simple to use
18:29:12XavierGrimphasing: Again I can't agree
18:29:19XavierGriPod can only play music
18:29:24XavierGrno recording or FM radio
18:29:24imphasing_XavierGr: ...
18:29:32imphasing_I said ipod with rockbox
18:29:33Paul_The_NerdbobTHC: No they wouldn't.
18:29:53imphasing_But the color screen with the scroll wheel is my favorite part
18:29:56XavierGrYes but still recording is not an option on iPod.
18:30:00imphasing_the scroll wheel I like
18:30:02bobTHCu have a bad idea of the "average ppl"
18:30:08XavierGrAnd IMHO the looks pf an iPod are awfull.
18:30:09imphasing_I don't record, so it's not a big deal
18:30:18imphasing_XavierGr: That's your opinion
18:30:20XavierGrof course
18:30:34imphasing_Out of curiosity, what player do you like?
18:30:51XavierGrbut for the same money (or sometimes less) I would choose something better. (Always IMHO)
18:30:56webguest01bottom line is Rockbox isn't ready for mainstream, to many options :))
18:31:19XavierGrH100, H300, iAudio
18:31:24imphasing_XavierGr: I like how thin the ipod is (I'm talking about the 5G) and how big the screen is as well though
18:31:30imphasing_I haven't actually seen those, so I can't comment
18:31:32XavierGriAudio X5 to be more precise
18:31:35imphasing_I'll check them out though
18:31:47XavierGrimphsing: You got a point on the screen
18:31:47bobTHCi dont talk u about directly advertise in the wall street journal webguest01, i talk about creating a propaganda team !
18:31:57XavierGrwhich is the biggest screen so far.
18:32:19Paul_The_NerdHonestly though, if you want more users before you even start you need to plan out a support mechanism
18:32:24imphasing_XavierGr: That's a pretty nice player...what sort of formats does it play?
18:32:32Paul_The_NerdA way to make sure you don't get 50 million repeated bug reports.
18:32:38Paul_The_NerdYou probably need a support staff.
18:32:55imphasing_Oh, FLAC and OGG...
18:32:57imphasing_I like
18:33:18imphasing_Any player that natively supprots FLAC has my attention
18:34:10XavierGrthat is the major point of an iAudio X5. And that's why it is going to be way more better when Linus and Bagder finish the porting.
18:34:31webguest01Flac is not a mass user codec
18:34:38imphasing_I looked at those before I bought an ipod, but they're also more expensive..
18:34:44imphasing_webguest01: Yes, but it's my favorite
18:35:16XavierGrwell at the time I bought my H140 (and later the H340) iPods were more expensive
18:35:36bobTHCflac is not a mass user codec until it will well supported by a majority of players
18:35:56imphasing_flac is great; lossless, and about 1/3rd thge size of a wav file
18:36:09imphasing_And an open standard
18:36:31Mikachui think most people would prefer having 5 albums on instead of 1, to having nondetectably better quality

18:37:14webguest01yes but they are a minority
18:37:33Mikachuimphasing_: on an mp3 player while riding a bike? :)
18:37:40imphasing_Mikachu: Hehe, no
18:37:41XavierGrthere should be an option for all people.
18:37:56imphasing_On an mp3 player, while writing an ASM rotating blitter
18:37:57Mikachui'm just saying most people probably won't use flac
18:38:08webguest01some people can hear a difference but cant be bothered, their easoning is that its a mp3 player not a piece of Hifi equipment
18:38:31Mikachui don't hear the difference between a cd and 100kbps ogg usually
18:39:07webguest01mp3 players are fun things for most, their lives dont revolve around their players

18:41:18imphasing_The new click wheel makes it easier
18:41:18webguest01the fact that apple hasn't implemented gapless proves that it doesn't really sonsider a mp3 player an audiophile product

20:19:17linuxstbMikachu: Remove the "#ifdef SIMULATOR" from around the while loop starting at about line 317 in pacbox.c to enable the framerate control.
20:19:35ohrnand for the H300 target that would be C or pascal?
20:19:45*amiconn doesn't understand
20:20:04Mikachushould it be nearer 40 then?
20:20:24ohrnwell, since my asm routine is called from C, it neets to handle the stack in the proper way
20:20:26linuxstbohrn: There are plenty of Coldfire ASM routines already in Rockbox (look in the apps/codecs directories). You may want to look at those for examples.
20:20:43amiconnohrn: coldfire uses stack arguments only.
20:20:52linuxstbMikachu: If you set FPS to 40, then the displayed framerate should be almost exactly 40 if you enable the framerate control.

20:50:41lostlogicAshex: what makes you say that?
20:50:43linuxstbI thought it charged faster with an AC adapter

22:14:48herz42_lostlogic: looking at the ipod charger chip?
22:15:50herz42_Inspired from the discussion, I'm doing some current measurements
22:16:34***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
22:18:25herz42_some interesting results: with rockbox running, the ipod draws only 100mA from my powered USB hub, while it consumes 380mA when the built in rom-usb-apple-fw is running :(
22:19:25herz42_so it seems that the charger needs usb handling (for knowing how much power it may draw etc.) otherwise it sticks to the standards
22:20:11herz42_with my external car adapter, it draws 140mA what is something like 340mA recalculated for 5V
22:22:41herz42_btw: on the car charger, the current varies depending on lcd/hdd activity. So it seems that the battery is not used when connected to 12V
22:24:02herz42_25mA are drawn with ipod just idling, 28mA with 0dB audio playback, and the lcd makes a 35mA difference (all 12V)
22:25:39lostlogicherz42_: are these later values for rockbox or retailos?
22:25:55herz42_for rockbox
22:26:27lostlogiccan you measure the pins on the car adapter's ipod connector to figure out which ones are powered?
22:27:10lostlogiccheck the 12v and 5v and 3.3v plz
22:27:20herz42_I once tore one apart, there it were the (former) firewire pins. I'm not sure, but it should be the same in my current cable...
22:28:10lostlogicok, that makes sense then
22:28:30lostlogicso contrary to my previous statement, it does use the wall adapter feature of the lct4066 most likely
22:28:45lostlogicand we may be able to set it to high power USB mode in firmware
22:29:32herz42_I thought some times that it didn't even charge in rockbox when connected to usb. Now I'm sure :)
22:30:03herz42_I didn't look at the datasheet yet. Is the information in there?
22:30:23herz42_(to switch to high power mode)
22:30:50lostlogicherz42_: the 4055 shows a pin that can be used to control how much power is drawn from USB
22:31:04lostlogicherz42_: I'd lay odds there's a similar pin on the 4066
22:31:22herz42_1 buck for the one who find out which one :)
22:32:19lostlogicmore importantly how to control that pin from rockbox ;)
22:32:32lostlogicand while where at it
22:32:44lostlogichow to read the charge status pin of the lct4066
22:33:07herz42_yeah, I thought of the ipod gpio pin ;)
22:33:58herz42_or can it be switched with high level usb cotrolling also?
22:34:24 Part devino
22:35:38herz42_does retailos have to use that pin also, or is there another way to get more current?

22:51:12MmmmPetur:It's difficult to find devs with an interest in the recording screen and it's impossible to find one with a remote! :D
22:51:12XavierGrsorry about that
22:51:23linuxstb_tucoz: Is there a manual target for the ipodvideo?

22:51:36tucozlinuxstb, no, not ye
22:51:54MmmmPetur: but yeah, if you've got the time it'd be great if you could look at it! :)

22:52:25*petur minimizes ida pro and goes looking...
22:52:44peturin the tracker already or just the forum?
22:52:57lostlogiclinuxstb_: hmm... that bit most likely at least flickers when charge is complete, because I know my ipod flips to disk mode as charge completes while playing in rockbox.
22:53:04Mmmmits on the tracker
22:53:38lostlogicherz42_: hard to say, retailos probably also uses this pin to determine how much power to draw from USB.

22:55:04herz42_lostlogic: then there's a chance to get it before we have full usb support - promising
22:57:36herz42_I'm just looking at the 4075. there the current selection is done with a resistor. So maybe someone finds it on the pcb :)
22:59:59lostlogicherz42_: 4055 is much more like 4066
23:00:17lostlogicthr 4066 and 4055 both use a bypass style AC adapter power system where hte 4075 uses a passthrough style
23:01:30herz42_ohh, I didn't see a second source input. So it is done with an additional external voltage regulator?
23:01:49lostlogicherz42_: yeah
23:02:38lostlogicherz42_: just a simple voltage regulator to go from the 12v input to 5V player power most likely
23:02:56herz42_ah yes, just found the application with external dc/dc converter
23:04:54herz42_and the LM34910 is in the ipod bom...

23:06:38blueyhow can i patch rockbox exactly for Albumart support?
23:10:18peturMmmm: that's quite a bit of code you changed... and most of them I don't know well (all that gui stuff)
23:11:01Mmmmheh heh...I know..took me a while to get to grips with it but it brings the recording screen into line with the rest of the rockbox code!
23:15:30herz42_ok, now as my ipod is fully charged again, the numbers from retailos that are to be beaten:
23:15:50peturMmmm: I don't feel comfortable to commit now at all... too much unknown stuff... maybe if I look at it as bit longer
23:16:06herz42_12mA are drawn with ipod just idling, 15mA with 0dB audio playback, and the lcd makes a 33mA difference (all 12V)
23:16:31MmmmPetur: It does look nicer the longer you look at it it must be said! :D
23:17:35MmmmTis powerful stuff that gui code once you get the hang of it! I like it! :)
23:17:37linuxstb_herz42_: When you talk about the lcd, what do you mean? The backlight?
23:17:55herz42_and it can clearly be seen that some kind of frequency (maybe even voltage) scaling is done. when the device is active, power raises up to 35mA and slowly (in 2s or so) drops down to 12mA again
23:19:22herz42_linuxstb: yes, backlight

23:26:55Mmmmits a plug-unlpug nightmare!
23:26:58sharpei'm back!
23:27:12herz42_btw: it's hard to tell exactly, but the hdd seems to consume an average 110mA when actively transfering data (12v/rockbox fw)
23:27:14miner49erI know this isn't the right place to ask, but i've just started re-building the kernel (2.6.15.sumthing) and owndered how long (on a AMX2000+) it should take to build - i.e. should I just go to sleep?
23:28:06miner49eroh, and on a rockbox subject - has anyone else noticed the boot up time has increased? (Archos JBR)
23:28:08Bagderminer49er: its pretty fast on modern machines
23:28:20miner49erBadger: What half an hour?
23:28:40miner49erI meant: What, like half an hour?
23:28:51BagderI'd guess less than so
23:29:02miner49erOh right, cool :-)
23:29:29miner49erThe last time I did it (8 years ago) it seemed to take forever...
23:30:02tucoz8 years ago, the computers were less powerfull than the Gigabeat ;-)
23:30:07*amiconn realises rebuilding sh-elf-gcc on cygwin was a baad idea

23:30:44miner49erSo, has anyone else noticed rockbox boot up time increased?
23:31:09miner49erit takes ages now for me? It could also be since I re-formted my drive (thru linux)
23:31:38BHSPitMonkeycomes up in less than a second for me
23:31:41amiconnIt's about half a second longer (on non-flashed boxes) since december
23:31:41BHSPitMonkeyon my iPods video and nano
23:31:51amiconn...because of the self-extracting loader
23:32:04hydraheadi just notice that it gives the 4g a high temperature :)
23:32:21amiconnBHSPitLappy: archos recv1...
23:32:31miner49erMMm, must be my box then 'cos it's a few seconds...
23:32:47miner49erit was more or less instant before
23:32:57amiconnWell, maybe
23:33:00miner49erMy battery is dying as well I think.
23:33:09amiconnIt seems my jbr has the battery contact problem
23:33:09miner49erdoesn't last very long at all
23:33:34hydraheadthats because no one is able to make the cpu throttle without some unstable patch
23:33:41amiconnSuffering from spurious OFF events, and disk spinup sometimes sounds strange
23:34:43miner49eramiconn: I had one that did that...I tried to take it apart and destroyed it in the process! gave the LCD someone though
23:35:25miner49erI've been reluctant to dismantle this one (it's been going for a couple of years now)
