#rockbox log for 2006-04-15

00:00:02TeaSeaBarrow-in-furness eh? Never been there! :D
00:00:21crashdwhere you from ?
00:00:21TeaSeaI come from Carlisle, but i'm studying at Lancaster uni.
00:00:21crashdahh, good choice
00:00:21crashdlancaster is a nice place
00:00:21warthawgok, i'll meet you at the olypia hotel in belfast, crashd
00:00:21Paul_The_Nerdbrendan_: The screendump looks fine in what way?
00:00:24crashdwarthawg: hey, fix the playback and i might buy you one :p
00:00:30TeaSeacrashd: Yeah :)
00:00:39 Quit charkins ("Leaving")
00:00:49warthawgi mean, i would, if i ever go back to belfast
00:00:59TeaSeaLancaster uni makes me smile.
00:01:07crashdTeaSea: you go to the sugarhouse much? :)
00:01:13brendan_Paul_The_Nerd, its in 16bit color
00:01:25TeaSeacrashd: Not as often last term as I did the term before :)
00:01:31TeaSeaIt's strange, i've sort of stopped going out a lot.
00:01:47TeaSeaI am now social secretary for the theatre group, so I should be going to the sugarhouse a FEW TIMES hopfeully.
00:02:17TeaSeaYou ever been there crashd?
00:02:31crashdsure have, many times
00:02:41TeaSeaWhen abouts?
00:02:41crashdin fact, i might be up there weekend may 6th for my birthday
00:02:49crashdi used to go a lot when i lived in barrow, nearest decent gig venue
00:02:54TeaSeacrashd: Ah aweseome. I'll definitely be in there May 4th.
00:03:06TeaSeaStar Wars bar crawl :D
00:03:12Paul_The_Nerdbrendan_: Strange. Could you try bejeweled and see if it looks like it's 16 colors, or higher?
00:03:19Paul_The_Nerdbrendan_: Sorry, Jewels
00:03:24crashdhehe, nice work there paul ;)
00:03:31Paul_The_Nerdbrendan_: Preferably after rebooting the ipod.
00:03:58brendan_Paul_The_Nerd, ok
00:04:32 Quit piroko ("telinit 0")
00:04:40Paul_The_NerdAgh. Man, I kinda wish that people would stop defending the project without at least researching it first.
00:05:02Paul_The_NerdIt's frustrating reading all these people stating various things about Rockbox that aren't true, or are at least only partially true.
00:05:23TeaSeacrashd: Unfortunately sugarhouse isn't as good as it supposedly was.

00:05:33brendan_Paul_The_Nerd, jewel looks like its in 16 bit
00:05:34TeaSeaSaturday night's a mixed back. Sometimes good, sometimes bad.
00:06:03aegrayhahahah hows it feel boys
00:06:07brendan_Paul_The_Nerd, i mean, not in 16bit
00:06:22aegray(+girls if there are any)
00:06:33Paul_The_Nerdbrendan_: So, in all instances your iPod Photo looks like it's in 16 colors, but the screendumps come out in 16 bit?
00:06:45brendan_Paul_The_Nerd, yep
00:07:10Paul_The_Nerdbrendan_: Okay, could you do one last thing then? Boot into the Apple firmware, and use iTunes to put a photo on your player, and see how that photo looks in the Apple firmware.
00:07:50brendan_Paul_The_Nerd, i can't seem to boot it into the apple firmware:-p
00:08:00brendan_Paul_The_Nerd, mayby i'm just using the wrong key, but i push menu and nothing happens
00:08:28Paul_The_Nerdbrendan_: Turn it off by holding play/pause. Then tap Menu to turn it on, release, and IMMEDIATELY hold it down until you see "Loading original firmware..."
00:09:14Matixswarthawg: thank you for your help with crosscompiler
00:09:16brendan_that worked

00:09:46Paul_The_Nerdbrendan_: As in, an image looks fine in Apple's Firmware, or just "I got to apple's firmware now"
00:10:39angelasheshow does the battery benchmarker work?
00:10:46brendan_Paul_The_Nerd, i got the firmware to load, the iamges in the firmware look like there more than 16 colors(the do not eject icon for example), but i'l try an image now
00:10:56Paul_The_Nerdangelashes: Every 30 minutes, approximately, it takes a reading and stores them in a .txt
00:11:24angelashesbut in those 30 minutes does it do anything?
00:11:33Paul_The_NerdWhat would it do?
00:11:47Paul_The_NerdIt runs in the background, so ideally you'd play music like normal.
00:12:06angelashesok i got yeah
00:13:21crashdTeaSea: you're not wrong, it used to be a really good
00:13:31TeaSeacrashd: Yeah. New DJs apparently.
00:13:43TeaSeaAlthough thursday nights are great... if you like indie music :D
00:14:18brendan_Paul_The_Nerd, i don't have itunes available, i'm using linux and gtkpod doesn't suport photos
00:14:39Mikachubrendan_: there's gpixpod
00:15:15Paul_The_Nerdbrendan_: Ah. Hm. Well, if you say it looks definitely 16-bit in the retail OS, I have to admit I'm confused. I would say delete rockbox.ipod and the .rockbox folder, put a new one on, and then, as soon as you turn on your iPod, immediately flip the hold switch to On to clear settings.

00:18:19lostlogicif this fixes it, I still don't quite understand why, and will therefor be quite irritated
00:18:30Mikachui seeked and it skipped to the next tarck
00:18:59lostlogicMikachu: damn ,you biult that fast
00:19:04Mikachusounds like it played a tiny bit of the new point
00:19:12lostlogicMikachu: jus ta normal seek or a seek to the very end?
00:19:12Mikachulostlogic: takes only 2 secs to rebuild one file...
00:19:12Mikachunormal seek, out of buffer
00:19:20*petur still waits on cygwin :(
00:19:23Mikachuinside buffer seems to work
00:20:21lostlogichow do you even do that? I can't seek as fast as it buffers on a startup

00:21:10Mikachuwhat, the whole file is always decoded instantly?
00:21:18 Join infamis [0] (
00:21:23brendan_Paul_The_Nerd, ok, i removed the the current version and replacd it with an earlier snapshot, and cleared the settings, but it didn't change anythign
00:21:26lostlogicMikachu: only 2 seconds are, so you are _always_ seeking out of the pcmbuffer
00:21:31Mikachuwhat i can promise though, is that seeking 3 seconds ahead works while seeking 2 minutes ahead makes it skip tracks
00:21:39Mikachulostlogic: my pcm buffer is 20MB or so
00:21:46lostlogicMikachu: never mind you then.
00:22:00lostlogiccan anyone with a _normal_ sized buffer recreate?
00:22:14Poka64sorry to bother you with this, nayone using rockbox on 2GB ipod mini ?
00:22:23infamisit's skipped tracks when fast-forwarding a great distance for me
00:22:33infamishaven't messed with any buffer sizes
00:23:01lostlogicinfamis: so you seek forward far and it changes tracks instead of seeking to the right place? even if you don't seek to very near the end fo the track?
00:23:04 Join etherz [0] (
00:23:41Paul_The_Nerdbrendan_: This is very strange. I honestly don't know where the problem could be. I mean, I'd guess it was a hardware initialization thing, if anything.
00:23:50Paul_The_NerdPoka64: Do you mean Second Generation?
00:24:02infamislostlogic: correct; when I let go of the fast-forward button, the next track starts playing. I'll have to see whether or not I'm near the end of a track
00:24:38etherzhiya guys
00:24:50Poka64Paul_The_Nerd, no, the 2GB version
00:24:54etherzi just read about the rockbox project on slashdot
00:24:57lostlogicinfamis: kk, anywho, I'm out. /msg or wiki for playback bugs until later.
00:24:58MikachuPoka64: aren't they 3 or 6GB?
00:25:04brendan_Paul_The_Nerd, is there any more debug output i could send you?
00:25:34Paul_The_Nerdbrendan_: Nothing that I personally could do anything with. I basically serve as a first line of technical support. I'd almost hazard that something's gone wrong with your bootloader, though I can't imagine what.
00:25:42Paul_The_NerdPolka64: Is it a 1st or 2nd generation then?
00:25:54crashdbrendan_: is this a new problem?
00:25:54Paul_The_NerdThe 1st gen isn't supported
00:26:01Poka64k, thx hehe
00:26:25etherzquick question, audio playback on ipods is now mutifomat with this firmware
00:26:34Paul_The_NerdWe'll get to it, but none of the devs here has a 1st gen Mini.
00:26:47brendan_crashd, its the first time i installed rockbox, so i'm not sure
00:26:47etherzany chance video will be multi format playback on the ipod video with this firmware in the future?
00:26:51Paul_The_Nerdetherz: Technically it's multiformat with the default firmware. But we do support MORE formats than them.
00:26:51crashdbrendan_: ah, ok
00:27:04crashdbrendan_: so, you're sure you got the right bootloader AND build from the rockbox website?
00:27:04Paul_The_Nerdetherz: We don't support video at all though, and it's not likely to happen particularly soon.
00:27:18brendan_crashd, i may have made a mistake settings it up, but i'm not sure what i could do to mess that up
00:27:52etherzthanks, i dont even have an ipod i just thought it would be sweet tho!
00:28:07etherzgreat idea you guys have
00:28:09etherz cya
00:28:14*Mikachu feels sorry for Bagder 2mbit server

00:29:43crashdi dont have a colour, i must admit, but if there had been problems i thought someone would have reported it by now
00:29:52crashddid you make some screenshots for paul?
00:29:58Paul_The_Nerdcrashd: I'm pretty sure Linuxstb even has an Ipod Photo.
00:30:28brendan_crashd, yes, but they look right(16bit color)

00:30:31Paul_The_Nerdcrashd: I haven't seen the screenshots, but he said they come out the proper depth, which is why I'm assuming it's a hardware initialization thing. The fact that it doesn't screw up the RetailOS makes me think it's *less* likely part of the bootloader, but that's not guaranteed.

00:31:25brendan_crashd, yes
00:31:40crashdbrendan_: could you maybe take a screenshot within rockbox, and take the same screenshot from your camera

00:40:46crashdMikachu: like, fucking with the screen depth?
00:41:05Mikachuwell no, but maybe it would have some strange random effects i dunno
00:41:07crashdyour best bet is to update to the most recent apple firmware and reinstalling rockbox
00:41:22crashdMikachu: possibly aye, but i would have thought it'd be more 'not booting' or 'weird disc stuff'
00:41:41Mikachuit boots but it doesn't find the config sector to write
00:41:41crashdthere was a post on the froum a few weeks back about a guy who was running rockbox on a 4g colour, and his retailos was really old, and it was screwing with the colours

00:54:29nleUm, hello, I got a question. I would like to install rockbox on my 20gb 4g ipod, but I dont have access on a windows machine. I use OS X. The problem is that I cant find any partiton table for my ipod (ipod 4g 20gb). Can anyone help?
00:54:29crashdi think that may well fix it though
00:55:05brendan_crashd, hopefully
00:55:35crashdyou could probably upgrade with just the .exe file from linux, and some creative command lines
00:55:40crashdif you were feeling adventurous
00:58:31Paul_The_Nerdnle: Unfortunately that means nobody's donated one for us yet. Until someone does you'll either need to go without rockbox, or get access to a Windows machine. If you do get access to a windows machine, we'd of course appreciate a donation of the MBR. ;-)

01:03:33nlebtw. how do I get the MBR of the ipod
01:03:50 Quit wehn (Read error: 113 (No route to host))

01:05:48nlek, thx
01:05:59crashdbedtime, nn all
01:06:00linuxstbThe MBR is just the first sector on the disk. So in Mac OS X, you do "dd if=/dev/disk2 of=mbr.bin count=1"
01:06:02Paul_The_NerdOf course you'd do this after converting to fat32, but *before* installing rockbox
01:06:42nleyes, of course
01:06:43Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: Just the person I wanted to see. Any idea why someone with an Ipod Photo is getting low colour depth in Rockbox (describes it as looking like 16 colors in plugins/etc)?

01:07:03crashd; )
01:08:30linuxstbYes, it could be the retailos (specifically, the flash-based bootloader) initialising the LCD differently to newer versions.
01:08:42crashdthat's how the issue on the forum was resolved anyway
01:09:02crashdand brendan said he only installed the s/w from the cd, and hadnt updates since

01:42:24Chrononhmm. I thought that there is a feature freeze, so no new CVS updates until May 1
01:42:32bluebrotherjust read the cvs log on the frontpage.
01:42:44bluebrotherfeature freeze means no new _features_
01:42:57webguest69Okay so when u goto that page with the picture of devices Under IPOD video you click :"Newest: ?
01:42:58Paul_The_NerdChronon: Feature freeze means LOTS of CVS updates. Just none that add features. Bugfixes and the like
01:43:02Chronon gotcha
01:43:17Chrononconcentrated on finalizing code for existing features
01:43:48Paul_The_Nerdwebguest69: The daily builds page gives you a build made once per day, the CVS builds page gives you the newest version period, with all changes up until when it was made.
01:43:55webguest69You guys can boost the volume on ur ipod here >>
01:44:15webguest69So its more wise to wait til the next release?
01:44:16Paul_The_Nerdwebguest69: That has nothing to do with rockbox...
01:45:19Paul_The_Nerdwebguest69: Well, there hasn't *been* a release for Ipod yet. It's "wisest" to download the newest version every now and then. If you get a particularly buggy one, use a slightly older version. Once you find one that has very few, or no, bugs that affect you, and has the features you like, stick with it until something you HAVE to have comes along.
01:46:14webguest69okay so maybe every day goto that page with the Ipod video picture and click "Latest:" and download that? If so which file do I actually put on my ipod root?
01:46:45ts-xUgh - that Bejeweled thing looks semi legitimate =>
01:46:52ChrononJust extract the zip to the root of your ipod
01:47:08 Quit nle (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
01:47:16Chronontell it to overwrite all files and it'll work, webguest69
01:47:40Paul_The_Nerdwebguest69: Have you read the installation instructions? Once you've finished installing the bootloader, all you have to do is extract a to put the newest version on.
01:47:44webguest69Oh I see and my original files that i added (ex:doom) will stay
01:47:49bluebrotherI need to leave now. Sleep was originally scheduled about 2 hours earlier. Damn mail :(

01:48:34Paul_The_Nerdts-x: Well, someone else could've read that and then forged the letter. But it seems best to assume it's real and query as to what grounds they're claiming copyright infringement on specifically (I'd say)
01:51:03ts-xThe screens look strikingly similar as well =>
01:51:39bluebrotherthe mail headers indicate a server with correct ip.

01:52:14bluebrotherbut what'd be the deal with the "deluxe" version they sell? Just bigger screen size? More icons? Themes?
01:52:19Paul_The_Nerdts-x: Our art comes from a GPL'ed bejeweled clone anyway, so everything we use is on an assertion from someone else that it's legit.
01:53:08bluebrotheranyway, I've got to go for now. I guess I need to read the logs tomorrow ...
01:53:22Paul_The_NerdSo, if ours is really infringing, the other one definitely was first.

01:57:45webguest85Hi quick question
01:58:02ts-xI wonder if all of the recent publicity led them here...damn you / . ;)
01:58:13webguest85When playing music on rockbox. How do I get back into the root (.rockbox. notes etc
01:58:25Mikachuone of the buttons should do it
01:58:25webguest85(Are you talking about
01:58:28Paul_The_NerdDo you want to stop the music?
01:58:37webguest85Well just go back to the root menu
01:58:39Paul_The_NerdOr do you want to get to the filetree while the music continues playing?
01:58:40Mikachu/. =
01:58:54webguest85Back to the root
01:59:03ts-xIt's on digg as well
01:59:05Paul_The_Nerdwebguest85: Hold Play/Pause for about 1-2 second if you want to stop the music. Just tap select if you want the music to continue
01:59:11 Quit gursikh ()
01:59:15webguest85Lemme try
01:59:18Paul_The_Nerdwebguest85: The filetree and the menu are two different things...
01:59:29webguest85From dig
01:59:33*Paul_The_Nerd suggests reading the manual
01:59:37webguest85File tree is the ipod root correct?
01:59:47webguest85yes file tree
01:59:56Paul_The_NerdThen it's the Select button.
02:00:13Paul_The_NerdThere's a manual available at the site, and I would recommend greatly reading it.
02:00:31webguest85I dont haev the time to read a PDF with 88888 pages
02:00:32Mikachunot greatly recommend then? /me hides
02:00:43Mikachuwebguest85: we don't have time to rewrite what's already in the manual
02:00:50Mikachuto you on irc
02:01:11webguest85You can easily reword it too "menu button for 2 seconds"
02:01:25Paul_The_Nerdwebguest85: Why do you think it's somebody else's responsibility to hand you information that you can't be bothered to get yourself?
02:01:35webguest85This is an irc for help....
02:01:43Paul_The_Nerd"Help" is for "Problems"
02:02:06Paul_The_Nerd"I can't be bothered to demonstrate my position as a member of literate society by reading the instructions for a piece of software I choose to use" is not a "Rockbox problem" it is a "User problem"
02:02:19webguest85I love you
02:02:40MikachuPaul_The_Nerd: that is one of the politer RTFM i have seen in a while :)
02:03:06Paul_The_NerdMikachu: You once asked how I stay sane? That's it right there. Coming up with new and interesting RTFM alternatives.
02:03:34Mikachui'm not sure it was me who asked, but i've wondered too
02:03:37webguest85I figured out the tagcache deal
02:03:45Paul_The_NerdAh, well somebody asked me.
02:03:48Paul_The_NerdSeveral people have asked me.
02:04:02webguest85It sucks that you have to change it to "show id3 files" to see the music you want. or else it dont show :(
02:04:25Mikachuyes omg there's a setting to do what you want and it's not on by default :((((((
02:04:45scottderThe Horror
02:04:52scottderYou must make a friend of horror
02:05:13webguest85It shows my music "artist, album etc" But it dont show the other root folders :(
02:05:20*Mikachu mixes some mandrake root and eye of newt to concoct a friend of horror
02:05:38scottderroot folders?
02:06:02webguest85calendar ipod_control .rockbox
02:06:06Paul_The_Nerdwebguest85: Well, if your music was in a "Music" folder, in perhaps the format \Music\Artist\Album\Track - Title.mp3 it'd show well in the file tree
02:06:20Paul_The_NerdBut I assume you've got it in the "compatible with itunes" format of "horribly obfuscated filenames of doom"
02:06:31webguest85But its taking it from Ipod_Control/music
02:06:44webguest85but If i goto that folder it shows the d123 d341 folders
02:06:56Paul_The_NerdBecause TagCache shows music based on their Tags
02:07:01Paul_The_NerdAnd the directory tree shows it based on their filenames
02:07:17warthawgi think it is time to put some saint willie on the nano
02:07:29Paul_The_NerdSo, if you copied over music using the Ipod as a disk, rather than by way of Itunes, the music wouldn't get renamed, and you'd be set.
02:07:34 Join mooch [0] (
02:07:47webguest85But sometimes I use the original firmware
02:07:50scottderYeah what Paul_The_Nerd
02:07:52moochif i install rockbox on my ipod5g, do i loose the music I have already there?
02:08:00webguest85no mooch
02:08:02Paul_The_NerdI personally, and I suspect many here, actively advocate the growth of users beyond the constraints of music management software that prevents you from having personal control of the state of your music. :)
02:08:15Paul_The_Nerdwebguest85: Why do you use the original to listen to music?
02:08:15webguest85lol pauk
02:08:22scottderBut as webguest85 is learning, itunes meses with file names
02:08:30webguest85because its complicated to navigate
02:08:46moochthe only problem i have is that my ipod claims to be in lock mode and it only mounts read-only under linux, so i might have to dd if=/dev/null of=/dev/ipod to clean it up
02:08:55scottderI copy music of and do Genre/Artist/Album
02:08:57moochor has anyone any idea how to solve that?
02:09:01scottdercouldn't be easier to navigate
02:09:14webguest85If I want to use tag cache. I have to goto general settings>file view> then show ID3 files Then theres my music! But The rest of my root files dont show.
02:09:30Paul_The_Nerdwebguest85: I thought you said you listened to music in the Retail OS
02:09:52webguest85I vary between the 2
02:09:57Paul_The_NerdIt doesn't make sense to me to listen to it in both. I can understand doing music in retail, and games/etc in Rockbox. Or doing Music in Rockbox, and only using retail for video...
02:11:00webguest85Well since i got that sound booster. Perhaps for retail os ill use it as music/videos and rockbox for apps/games :) thanks paul
02:11:15Paul_The_NerdI would suggest simply learning to use Rockbox for Music
02:11:27Paul_The_NerdSeeing as Rockbox does support the full range of volume that the Ipod can output.
02:11:52webguest85Well I got the volume booster and it gets LOUD in retail os
02:12:03*Paul_The_Nerd shrugs.
02:12:10Paul_The_NerdAs I said, Rockbox supports the full range of the hardware.
02:12:22webguest85I know
02:12:32webguest85But I guess Im just to used to ipod os
02:12:45webguest85What kinda of things non music related can I do in rockbox on my 5g
02:12:53Paul_The_NerdNot many things.
02:13:00Paul_The_NerdSeeing as what it does is "Play music better"
02:13:06Paul_The_NerdThat's kinda its purpose
02:13:15Paul_The_NerdThere's a few games and other things, and a better jpeg viewer, but that's about it
02:13:53webguest85Could you hook me up with a link to the games? and how so a better music player?
02:14:01Paul_The_NerdThe games come with it...
02:14:27midkaybetter music player. haha.
02:14:29webguest85oh... I mean 3rd party gamses
02:14:32Paul_The_NerdAnd "Gapless, Crossfade, Crossfeed, several new formats, Parametric Equalizer, Replaygain, on the fly full playlist creation and saving"
02:14:45ts-xwebguest85 =>
02:14:50midkayi hope we don't get too many of these visits since the recent burst of publicity..
02:15:04Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Were you laughing at whether or not it is a better music player?
02:15:15moochOgg is kind of the thing i am looking for
02:15:20webguest85I just wish I knew how to make playlist and stuff. I did read the pdf and it hurts my mind
02:15:26midkayPaul_The_Nerd, no, at the fact that he "wants" a better music player, as if it's.. not integrated in rockbox or something.
02:15:29moochdoes it skip much playing Vorbis?
02:15:33midkayoh. never mind. misread that.
02:15:34webguest85All I wanna do is shuffle
02:15:45Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: I've even to valid MP3s that the Retail OS won't play properly.
02:15:46midkayi thought he said he "wanted new plugins and a better music player"..
02:16:03webguest85i didnt say that
02:16:04midkayeven so, i hope.. pray.. this doesn't happen too often. :)
02:16:07Paul_The_Nerdmooch: On the Nano I can play Q8 vorbis without a problem.
02:16:16midkaywebguest85, *read* - i said "i thought he said", not "he said".
02:16:41Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: I'm already trying to prepare myself to be ready for the forums. I read the slashdot responses and it made me sad.
02:16:58webguest85Im prob gonna copy all my music into rockbox for the hell of it
02:17:00midkayPaul_The_Nerd, yeah..
02:17:02webguest85i got 25 gigs
02:18:00webguest85WHAT if I made a suffle, playlist file with Winamp and copied that file into rockbox!?
02:18:20Paul_The_NerdThen you could play it?
02:18:20midkaywhat if you just used tagcache? or did i miss something?
02:18:20moochPaul_The_Nerd: the problem is that i have ALL my music collection (circa 500 cds) in flac+vorbis, so now that i got a video 30gb i do not want to get into the trouble of converting again all the flacs into mp3s
02:18:25midkayPaul_The_Nerd, haha.
02:18:37Galois'A "wealth of codecs" is only really important when you are pirating your music from fellow people who cannot decide on a single standard and you don't want to have to be bothered to convert your booty before it goes to your player.' <−− shining example of piercingly inciteful slashdot commentary
02:18:40Galoiser, I meant insightful
02:18:42webguest85All I want to do is shuffle my music
02:18:44scottdervorbis r00lz!
02:18:44Paul_The_Nerdmooch: Well, are they Q8 or higher vorbis, or lower than that?
02:18:59Paul_The_Nerdwebguest85: Why did you just type TAGCACHE in all caps?
02:19:01midkayPaul_The_Nerd, your witty responses make the probably-upcoming hell almost worth it :)
02:19:08moochPaul_The_Nerd: i use -b 192, so dunno... ;)
02:19:12webguest85IS there a way to make a shuffle playlist with tagcache
02:19:31moochPaul_The_Nerd: my biggest problem is the issue with the lock hard disk...
02:19:32Paul_The_Nerdmooch: CBR vorbis is already a bad idea. But, those should have no problem playing. Q8 averages ~225ish, maybe higher.
02:19:53MoosMusepack r00lz ; )
02:20:11webguest85Can you make a shuffle playlist with tagcache?
02:20:11Paul_The_Nerdwebguest85: Can winamp find all the files on your player to make a playlist? 'cuz you can then save the playlist in the root, switch to file view to launch the playlist. Playlist use has nothing to do with TagCache being enabled or disabled really
02:20:15scottderI've been trying Q3 vorbis files with pretty good results
02:20:22moochPaul_The_Nerd: i mean, i am ready to trash my ipod, but i have no idea how to solve the problem with accessing the hard disk...
02:20:22scottdercertainly good enough for portable listening
02:20:40Paul_The_Nerdmooch: That part I really don't know.
02:20:40moochPaul_The_Nerd: the kernels sets it into read-only mode for some stupid reason

02:22:53webguest85Wow and winamp encodes it too
02:23:38Paul_The_NerdBasically, just add the Ipod Control folder to a playlist in Winamp, and then save it as an M3U playlist in the root of your ipod

02:25:21ashridahyou know, i'm wondering if there actually *are* any copyright violations or trademark violations in jewels. the name's still a little dodgy, but there's no copyright violation if you made all the art yourself (not to mention code), and there's no trademark violation if your art doesn't look like his (that's assuming he HAS a trademark on the art)

02:30:57Alicia_RI managed to get the loader on there, but whenever I extract the rockbox firmware and other stuff like that to the root iPod directory, I get "Rockbox error: -1" upon rebooting it.

02:34:45Alicia_RWhat do you mean? Windows XP says it's finished extracting to the root directory, so I wait a minute for good measure, then reboot the iPod.
02:35:11Alicia_RI get the -1 error, and upon checking root again, rockbox.ipod is gone. This is weird.

03:45:55thouterswhat plugin did you write?
03:46:22VoltageXallyourbase.rock :)
03:46:28VoltageXit's just a helloworld
03:46:53VoltageXI did make bzip2
03:47:02midkayyou only need to copy apps/plugins/allyourbase.rock to test changes..
03:47:16VoltageXoh yeah *slaps forehead
03:47:18thoutersgood point there :P
03:47:21midkaythat's builddir/apps/plugins/allyourbase.rock - make sure your rockbox build is up-to-date though.
03:47:44midkaymaybe make zip and install it the first time, and for later tests just make and then copy the rock.
03:48:04thoutersyou can cut some of the plugins out of SOURCES, if you want it to compile faster ;)
03:48:17VoltageXcan you make a .rock without the whole rockbox?
03:48:58ashridahno-one's really exported a development environment yet
03:49:58thoutersVoltageX: the build doesn't compile already compiled files again

04:41:06lostlogicroostishaw: no, there are active settings which are saved in a special sector and those load automatically
04:41:32lostlogicbut if something resets them or an imcompatible version of the settings block comes out then you will need to load from a .cfg file
04:41:40lostlogicso you can go to manage settings -> load .cfg file to load one
04:41:42roostishawso whats the point of even going through the trouble of customizing all the setting if they're not saved?

04:58:19lostlogicJungti1234: if you emailed it to me I didn't receive it.
04:58:27webguest38thanks for the help guys
04:58:28Jungti1234I didn't make it
04:58:41lostlogicJungti1234: I'm confused
04:58:43airwolf4everso no video playback on the video ipod
04:58:50Jungti1234commit only your patch
04:58:56Paul_The_Nerdairwolf4ever: Rockbox is primarily designed for Audio players, so no. It doesn't do video. And it probably won't support it soon, unless someone from outside comes up with a way, because there's too much work that can still be done to improve audio related features.
04:59:02lostlogicJungti1234: I did

04:59:23Paul_The_Nerdairwolf4ever: But, Rockbox exists along side the original firmware, so you can reboot into it at any time to watch your videos, or listen to DRM wrapped podcasts
04:59:24airwolf4evercool thank you for all the info
04:59:34airwolf4everI still think the delete feature is worth it
04:59:45airwolf4everOh cool!
04:59:53airwolf4everand then I can boot intorockbox
04:59:59airwolf4everand delete stuf I dont want
05:00:11airwolf4everThats exactly what I want
05:00:49airwolf4everThanks Paul!! for all the info
05:00:51Paul_The_NerdWell, you can't really delete things that show up in the Retail OS very well from rockbox
05:01:10Paul_The_NerdIt does this crazy thing where it obfuscates the files by renaming them, and it has its own database which the files must be removed from, and so on.
05:01:30 Quit stamppot (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))

05:03:13pirokohas anyone noticed a bug in at least the 4g ipod, maybe others, where the lcd doesn't fully turn off on shutdown, leaving a line behind?
05:03:23lostlogicpiroko: yeah, known
05:03:28Paul_The_NerdIt's fully turned off, it's just not cleared first.
05:03:30lostlogicpiroko: we don't have an LCD controller shutdown sequence
05:03:37pirokook just checking. thanks
05:04:08lostlogicPaul_The_Nerd: am I forgetting any outstanding bugs in playback currently? I know about seeking into, or within the last pcmbufsecs of the track, anything else I'm forgetting?
05:04:25pirokocrossfade doesn't always work. it seems kinda random
05:04:36pirokobut i guess that's an extra feature
05:04:40Paul_The_Nerdlostlogic: Not that I know of. It's a little hard to tell because half the time they're reporting a bug you fixed 2 or 3 hours before. =/
05:05:01pirokotesting out the newest version now...
05:05:04lostlogicpiroko: depends on pcm buffer level, watch the audio thread debug screen and see if it works when the pcm buffer is high and not when it's low
05:05:43lostlogicPaul_The_Nerd: ahaha, whoops :-P Well as always let me know via /msg or wiki, I sleep now.
05:05:55lostlogicpiroko: if that's not the case then I might have broken crossfade on codec changes or something of that stupid sort.

05:06:15pirokolostlogic: well, it works more often if I increase the disk buffer...
05:06:43lostlogicpiroko: increase the antiskip buffer? weird.
05:06:55pirokoyeah. it won't crossfade at all if it's at 5 seconds
05:07:02pirokoi have it at 5 minutes
05:07:07pirokois there any harm in that?
05:07:17Paul_The_NerdBut the antiskip buffer should only affect the Compressed Buffer, right?
05:07:17 Quit airwolf4ever ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
05:07:17lostlogicpiroko: means the disk will spin up to rebuffer more often, but for less teim
05:07:25webguest38now im having trouble compiling
05:07:39lostlogicPaul_The_Nerd: probably less likely to be buffer filling during track transition with a higher watermark
05:07:44pirokoi don't understand why you'd want to keep the disk buffer low...
05:08:00lostlogicpiroko: you want to fill it as rarely as possible to reduce battery usage
05:08:02Paul_The_Nerdpiroko: It's not exactly what you think
05:08:06webguest38when i compile the source after patches i get this error: WARNING: The compiler you must use (arm-elf-gcc) is not in your path!
05:08:18Paul_The_Nerdpiroko: What you're actually setting is "How much compressed audio do I have to go below, before the buffer refills"
05:08:25lostlogicg'night rockboxers and slashdotters.
05:08:31webguest38then if i try to make anyway i get this make[1]: arm-elf-gcc: Command not found
05:08:36Paul_The_Nerdpiroko: So, at 5 minutes, you can have the disk fail to read for 5 minutes before you get a skip.
05:09:09lostlogicwebguest38: then you didnt' install a CrossCompiler as the instructions say to do.
05:09:11Paul_The_Nerdwebguest38: Then you don't have arm-elf-gcc in your path. It's a pretty clear error message. Are you on linux?
05:09:32ashridahwebguest38: what're you using for your development environment?
05:09:36webguest38no, im running the BSD subsystem on OSX
05:09:40pirokog'night lostlogic
05:09:43Paul_The_Nerdpiroko: In the end, this means that the lower you set the value, the longer it plays between disk reads, but the more likely you'll get a skip if a disk read fails.
05:09:55pirokowebguest: I CAN HELP!
05:10:04pirokowebguest: do you have darwin ports installed?
05:10:15webguest38no, i have fink

05:11:07webguest38so i need to get the cross compiler and it should work?
05:11:33pirokoi personally have both, as they both have packages that the others don't. for instance, afaik fink doesn't have arm-elf-gcc. but darwin ports does
05:11:51webguest38i'll try it out
05:11:51pirokoit's safe to run them both together
05:12:12pirokodarwin ports uses /opt/local, fink uses /sw. no problem. once you get darwin ports running (not hard at all) a sudo fink install arm-elf-gcc
05:12:15pirokoshould suffice

05:14:22pirokodamn. the pcm buffer fills really fast now...
05:14:47Paul_The_Nerdpiroko: The lower you can set the anti-skip-buffer the better for the battery. So, basically, set it at the lowest, if you have skipping problems raise it a little, so on and so forth
05:16:25 Quit Rob2222_ (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
05:16:45pirokoah I get it now! if the buffer gets below 5 seconds, it will rebuffer, right? if I set it to five minutes, it will get below five minutes more often, and rebuffer more often, right? this doesn't effect _how much_ gets buffered.

05:29:41Paul_The_Nerdpiroko: Unfortunately that's not a feature tagcache has yet. It will eventually, but it doesn't have it yet. =/
05:30:36ashridahwe probably need to start looking into building external tagcache builders as well, mostly for the people who don't want to flatten their battery just building the cache :)
05:31:25pirokook that's fine. it's just that it found all my ._files and it's really annoying so I went and deleted them all and now I need to update. maybe a patch could be put in to the tagcache builder that would prevent it from caching "._" files? it would be easy...
05:31:47VoltageXmy .c file got compiled to a .o but not a .rock...
05:31:59angelashesi find after i fully charge my ipod and reboot to rockbox it says i have 94% battery life left
05:32:02Paul_The_Nerd._ files shouldn't be cached anyway, should they? I thought it only cached files with metadata.
05:32:05ssstormyanyone have any apps for linux to suggest for recording?
05:32:19Paul_The_Nerdangelashes: Yeah, the battery % number may be a little off.

05:33:19VoltageXthere'd be a cli app somewhere to record to .wav

05:35:38pirokojust do an if not "._*" type statement for every file it tries to cache. that wouldn't slow it down too much, would it?
05:36:05ashridahpiroko: text comparison is a little more difficult than that
05:36:15Paul_The_Nerdpiroko: Well, depends on your definition of "too much" ;-)
05:36:56ashridahVoltageX: so far as i know, adding it to SOURCES in apps/plugins/ should be all that's necessary
05:37:13pirokois there any caveat to running tagcache from disk/loading to ram?
05:37:28ashridahprovided you've got the appropriate headers and macros like "PLUGIN_HEADER" in use
05:37:39Paul_The_NerdRunning it from disk means your disk will have to spin up to browse, but you have slightly more audio buffer (better battery life if you rarely browse)

05:39:39Paul_The_Nerdtagnavi.config is important
05:39:47ashridahVoltageX: then it should just happen, there's no way for the makefile to magically ignore one, so far asi can tell. you've tried make clean and a full rebuild?
05:39:49Paul_The_NerdIt's what makes tagcache customizable
05:42:06VoltageXashridah: rebuilding while I go have lunch.
05:42:19Kyomitagcache actually works?
05:42:44KyomiI checked on it in debug menu... And said something like "percent completed: -1%"
05:42:44Paul_The_NerdKyomi: It's "actually worked" for a while. It's just not always worked how people wanted it to.
05:42:52ashridahKyomi: it's worked pretty well for me, although i don't use it, since i have far too many crazily tagged compilations
05:43:04ssstormybuild-dir/apps/rockbox.bin is the program itself right?
05:43:09KyomiWhats car adapter mode?
05:43:12ashridahKyomi: that menu's been broken the entire time :)
05:43:16KyomiWhen you're using an FM transmitter?
05:43:36Paul_The_Nerdssstormy: After running "make" run "make zip" to get the same you'd download from the site, and just use that.
05:43:48KyomiAnd why does windows and rockbox say I have 52MB and windows says I have 260somethingMB free?
05:43:52Paul_The_Nerdashridah: The % works now
05:43:58Kyomierrr.. second windows = original firmware
05:44:17ashridahKyomi: because the original firmware sucks balls at keeping the freespace flags in fat in check
05:44:18Paul_The_NerdKyomi: Car adapter mode is used to control power on/off when plugged/unplugged (so it shuts off when you turn off your car) but doesn't really work for ipods at the moment
05:44:22Paul_The_NerdKyomi: Or H300
05:45:03Paul_The_NerdKyomi: Do you need to empty the recycle bin on it maybe?
05:45:37pirokoPaul_The_Nerd: what did you do to fix the %? there aren't any changes in the cvs, unless it takes a little time to update
05:46:20Paul_The_Nerdpiroko: Well, last time I ran a forced tagcache update from scratch, then watched the % in the debug menu, it showed accurately as the tagcache was built
05:46:52piroko... nevermind. sorry I was thinking ipod battery %. off topic...
05:46:55KyomiI still think it's funny mine is -1% complete
05:47:43KyomiBeware the massive geek that is me and watch me copy over Monty Python and the Holy Grail script to read on my H320 XD
05:48:37KyomiI also got tired of removing all the themes/wps/rocks I never used/hated

05:49:44ssstormyhmm I built rockbox, and I'm using the ipodloader2, and when I try to boot rockbox... the progress bar fills, then a message appears behind it and the ipod reboots
05:50:19Paul_The_Nerdssstormy: You have rockbox.ipod and the .rockbox folder extracted in the root of the fat32 partition?
05:50:41Paul_The_Nerdssstormy: Also, I'm not sure how well loader2 and 3G rockbox get along. You're probably the first to try it.
05:51:19ssstormywhy me
05:51:20piroko:O there are 775 KNOWN ISSUES? holy crap
05:51:41Paul_The_Nerdpiroko: Where did you get that number?
05:51:53pirokoShowing tasks 41 - 60 of 775
05:52:05Paul_The_Nerdssstormy: Because it doesn't play audio yet, and most people who are actually developing it use our bootloader (when they were around, which is no longer)
05:52:24Paul_The_Nerdpiroko: Bugs, or is that including Feature Requests and Patches? Also, some of those are 2+ years old, and haven't been closed
05:53:11pirokoah. that makes sense though. I was looking at everything. and the crossfade not working at 5second buffer was incorrect on my part. I had to perform a restart to get crossfade working properly.
05:53:32pirokobut it still is working randomly...
05:54:17ssstormyPaul_The_Nerd: you mean no one is develing 3G ipod anymore!?
05:55:04Paul_The_Nerdssstormy: Nobody here owns one, so it can't be developed directly.
05:55:18ssstormyoh the arghness
05:55:27Paul_The_Nerdssstormy: Basically we need someone with moderate or better programming experience who owns a 3G who will either sit around and test things, or work on it himself.

06:18:11KyomiI played that a bit
06:18:14KyomiGot bored with it
06:18:19ashridahVoltageX: the hard part about porting a codec comes in a few ways. a) license (must be GPL compatible), b) floating-point usage (can't use floating point math) and c) optimisation (getting it to run quickly once it runs at all)
06:18:21KyomiI'd rather play a MUD :P

06:19:21pirokoKyomi: what are you talking about?

06:19:38pirokoa board that makes you un-detectable?
06:19:39VoltageXbancus: but be pointless
06:19:40dj-fujust like to say.. Rockbox pwns so hard. has fixed all my issues with ipod+linux :)
06:19:54ashridahwell, given that rockbox doesn't really have a virtual memory implementation, an interpreted language might be a bit hard to implement
06:19:58bancusVoltageX: I dunno if it'd be pointless
06:20:06bancusC is a bitch to code in.
06:20:15dj-fuquick question, how do I install a "WPS" theme.
06:20:17bancusOf course, I used to code ASM, but then, python has made me soft.
06:20:31dj-fumono on rockbox! ha ;D
06:20:31bancusdj-fu: copy it to .rockbox/wps, I think
06:20:35*piroko codes in machine code
06:20:36dj-fubancus, thanks, thought as much.
06:20:46VoltageXbancus: are you any good at C?
06:20:46bancusit depends on the theme

06:20:51KyomiYeah... you can upgrade your internet/motherboard/ram/etc

06:22:56Paul_The_Nerdbancus: Did you just call C an inferior language? I hope you're not trying to pass opinion off as the actual case.
06:23:14ashridahVoltageX: i assume fmod is a tracker codec? or am i way off?
06:23:18bancusPaul_The_Nerd: It's my opinion, sure.
06:23:25VoltageXashridah: one of the best tracker codecs
06:23:28bancusI admit C has its uses, but *shrug*.
06:23:39Paul_The_Nerdbancus: So what would you code a firmware for an embedded device in?
06:23:47VoltageXPaul_The_Nerd: asm
06:23:48ashridahVoltageX: what language is it written in? the only fmod i know is a commercial audio library
06:23:50bancusI'm not saying rockbox shouldn't be in C.
06:23:59KyomiIt should be in asm XD
06:24:06VoltageXo.O I'm sure there was a GNU tracker codec
06:24:06bancusI'm just stating my preference for my personal hobby time.
06:24:07KyomiMake it in java :D
06:24:20KyomiThen I might be able to do something
06:24:29ashridahVoltageX: besides, i thought someone was working on using DUMB or something

06:24:46bancuswhat is it?
06:24:50VoltageXashridah: they would be my hero if they are
06:24:52ashridahbancus: mikmod's pretty much out of the question, it's pretty inferior in comparison to other mod players
06:24:54Paul_The_Nerdbancus: Then that hardly makes C an "inferior" language, if it's the tool suitable for the task.

06:26:07bancusScroll up.
06:26:09Paul_The_Nerdbancus: Ah, but the subject here is working on Rockbox, and at no point before did you mention the words "enjoying" or "weekend" so one can only assume its effectiveness was being judged for the aforementioned task of coding Rockbox.
06:26:14bancusDid I *ever* say that rockbox shouldn't be in C?
06:26:20ashridahsorry, i'm being deliberately obtuse :)
06:26:24*Paul_The_Nerd grins

06:26:48Paul_The_NerdI have no stick with which to beat the denizens of the forum, so I must enjoy myself here to survive.
06:26:59bancusThe idea there was relating that it's a hobby.
06:27:09bancusSomeone asked if I knew C, I was merely talking about it.
06:27:27*Paul_The_Nerd needs badly a 'forum denizen beating stick' of some sort.
06:27:43ashridahbut yeah. C's painfulness comes from how it's used more than anything.
06:27:47dj-furight, is there a way to like, add all the music to a playlist with this? I'm new, is there a wiki that I can oorgle over somewhere?
06:27:57dj-fuI absolutely love having drag'n'drop.. means I don't ahve to reboot to itune.
06:28:00bancusashridah: Have you ever see GObj-C?
06:28:02ashridahi doubt rockbox's architecture is perfect, but i'm willing to bet it's not deliberately painful
06:28:06bancusIt's *hideous*.
06:28:14bancusMy god is it ever evil.
06:28:18Paul_The_NerdPlease to compare these two "It doesn't work" threads: and
06:28:21pirokoargh. too late... need sleep... goddnight everyone

06:28:29pirokoas in goodnight...
06:28:41ashridahdj-fu: go to the root of your player, hit the menu button, playlist options, create playlist
06:28:56Paul_The_NerdThey both have their problems, (one is a typical "I got an error message but kept going for no apparent reason, without asking for help") but clearly one is much less frustrating than the other
06:28:57bancusFiguring out where the menu button was on an X5 was interesting.
06:29:06ashridahyou'll get a .m3u containing all your music called root.m3u in the root of the device.
06:29:28VoltageXashridah: DUMB is kind of a hard keyword to search for :D
06:29:38bancusVoltageX: libdumb?
06:30:10ashridahbut dumb, codec, and mod or tracker probably should narrow it down a bit
06:30:57dj-futy ashridah
06:31:03ashridahVoltageX: anyway, i seem to recall the issue with trackers being more in how to deal with inserting them into the playback system, since you can't start decoding one without loading it entirely into memory, if memory serves
06:31:23dj-fuholy crap this owns
06:32:09bancusI get the feeling I'm going to have to make my own wps.

07:15:32Paul_The_Nerddj-fu: 24-bit, same dimensions as the screen
07:15:36VoltageXand it seems to skip it
07:15:43dj-fusweet, got it
07:15:54dj-fuis ther a way to select a .bmp for backdrop.. or do I have to edit a .wps to load it
07:17:15Paul_The_Nerddj-fu: To use it in a WPS you use the %X tag (capital X)
07:17:38Paul_The_NerdTo use it as a menu backdrop, you set it to show all files, browse to /.rockbox/backdrops (where the file needs to be) and click and hold on the .bmp and then choose Set as Backdrop
07:19:00dj-fuIf I was a blog guy. I'd so blog about this

07:23:51VoltageXa lot of the cvs dumb stuff is done by 'hlc' but there's no contact details
07:23:53Paul_The_Nerddj-fu: If the WPS does not define a backdrop in it, I believe it uses the menu one. Otherwise if it has a %X tag it uses its own

07:26:37 Quit kidd3ckz ("(wiRC v7.0) download it @")
07:26:53Jungti1234Why volume of Rockbox default setting is -25db?
07:27:16Paul_The_NerdWhy not?
07:27:29KyomiI probably blown my hearing
07:27:30Jungti1234Isn't it loudness?
07:27:39KyomiI keep it at -20DB
07:27:52KyomiThen -5DB in the car and the car volume is like 40
07:27:54Paul_The_NerdSome people think -25 is loud (I do) and others think it is soft.
07:28:14dj-fuwhoa, that's quiet.
07:28:18Jungti1234-45 is most suitable.

07:29:16Jungti1234I surprise because of Rockbox...

08:16:39dj-futry find it in disk mode?
08:16:48infamisdunno...I'm anti-iPod but've had to mess with iPod/itunes for my girlfriend & dad's iPods
08:16:58Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: And it doesn't show up in TagCache? Have you tried forcing a clean tagcache update (deleting the old tagcache files?)
08:17:11sayoceanpaul, this is for apple firmware
08:17:20sayoceani forgot to mention, i can find the song via SONGS
08:17:27sayoceanbut when i go through Artists, its not there
08:17:36Paul_The_NerdSounds like it doesn't have a proper Artist tag then
08:17:36sayoceanbut on my itunes, its tagged correctly
08:17:37infamisincorrectly tagged?
08:17:44sayoceanits correctly tagged
08:17:46Paul_The_NerdThere's *something* wrong with the tag
08:17:48sayoceani have two versions of the song
08:17:49midkaysayocean, are you tagging it on the iPod or in your library?
08:17:52sayoceanone original, one remix
08:17:55sayoceanthe remix one doesnt show
08:17:57Paul_The_NerdOr at least, there's something wrong with how Apple supports the tag.
08:18:02midkayi've only had that problem when the artist tag is missing..
08:18:11Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: This is really something you should be asking Apple, as we're Rockbox, a very very very different style of group
08:18:11midkayit needs to be tagged on the iPod of course..
08:18:13sayoceananyway to rebuild the itunes.db ?
08:18:27Galoisby the way, this is one of the reasons I hate itunes: it adds an unwelcome layer of complexity between the keyboard and your files
08:18:28midkayjust go to 'iPod' in iTunes, and retag it directly on the iPod.
08:18:41sayoceandid that
08:18:52Galoiswith a file-browser approach, there's no question as to whether you have the right tag or not
08:18:56midkaythen it'd work, something didn't happen right..
08:19:02infamissee what the tags actually are using winamp or something
08:19:58sayoceananyone here use Ephod ?
08:20:28dj-futhe whole iTunesDB system is shite

08:21:28sayoceanafter i put "misc" it shows up now
08:21:32sayoceanbut wtf
08:21:42sayoceanthat was retarded
08:21:43Paul_The_NerdIt's their software.
08:21:50Paul_The_NerdAnd it's you who's choosing to still use it.
08:23:30sayoceani did notice
08:23:40sayoceanthat the new bleeding edges weren't "pausing" as much
08:24:21Paul_The_NerdWhat kind of iPod do you have again, and what bitrate files were you using?
08:24:38sayocean5G (video)
08:24:46sayoceanmostly 192k and VBR
08:25:11Paul_The_NerdAnd you've been using a WPS that doesn't show a peakmeter?
08:25:32sayoceanwell not anymor
08:25:35Paul_The_NerdAnd you have the equalizer set to "off"
08:25:35sayoceannot after you told me not to
08:25:41sayoceanive been using iAmp
08:25:50sayoceanwith equalizer, crossfeed, crossfade off
08:26:02Paul_The_NerdThat's odd, because most people don't get pausing with it like that.
08:26:20sayoceanno no, what im saying is, compared to like 5 days ago, the pausing has stopped more or less
08:26:25sayoceaneven on the "info/credits' page
08:26:33infamisWe need a karma lookalike wps....anybody?
08:26:46Paul_The_NerdWell "Has stopped more or less" is quite different from "not as much"

08:30:13midkayPaul_The_Nerd, i had no idea that code was in place. i thought it had to be updated manually each time.. it'd be rescanning on boot then or something?
08:30:25Angel_of_DeathPaul_The_Nerd, can i make smart playlist, aka top 25 most played and such with RB
08:30:26Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: You did shut down properly, and reboot first?
08:30:39Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: I believe so, yes. Not 100% certain, but I think so.
08:30:43Galoisinfamis: I'm not sure it is yet possible to have a Karma lookalike WPS
08:30:55midkayinteresting :)
08:31:03Paul_The_NerdAngel_of_Death: Not at the moment. The facilities to do that have been removed, but expect them to return HOPEFULLY with 3.1
08:31:05sayoceanshutdown properly as in hold down on PLAY button
08:31:15Angel_of_Deathwhens 3.1 expected
08:31:16infamisGalois: how do you figure?
08:31:22Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: And your TagCache is empty?
08:31:24Galoisthe Karma has two useful WPS displays, one shows you six songs in the playlist, and the other shows you an oscope trace of the audio
08:31:33sayoceanits not
08:31:38sayoceanall the artists, albums show up
08:31:41Galoisright now rockbox has no built in facilities for showing playlists or oscopes in the WPS
08:31:54sayoceanit also says "searching.found (0)" or something liek that right before it lists the artists or albums
08:32:13Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: Do your files have Genre tags?
08:32:14Angel_of_DeathPaul_The_Nerd, u know of the top of ur head when 3.1 is expected
08:32:15infamisI usually just used the default progress indicator....just something nice & simple
08:32:40infamisall the other wps's look too graphicy (even if it is all text)
08:32:43Angel_of_Deathdang man by the time rockbox is *released* for 5g ipod..... its gonna be so good lol.... i mean it already makes apple firmware look like childs play
08:32:45sayoceanpaul, some do, some dont
08:32:46Paul_The_NerdAngel_of_Death: It's scheduled for November. The RuntimeDB features may or may not be in it. They may be earlier, or later. It's just *hoped* they will.
08:33:07Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: Well, is there a Genres entry inside of tagcache for you?
08:33:08Angel_of_Deathi hope they will will be before
08:33:19Angel_of_Deaththats one thing i liked about apple
08:33:21sayoceanpaul what do ya mean?
08:33:22Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: I'm just thinking something in the tagcache.config is going wrong. But I don't really know
08:33:32Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: Is there a Genres entry beside Artists and Albums
08:33:54midkayi think my efforts will be futile, but - does anyone available know much about rockbox's menu code? anyone watching from the shadows? :)
08:34:34Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: Wait, is the "searching.found (0)" displayed on the screen, or are you talking about something that flashes and is gone?
08:35:23sayoceanit flashes for a sec and its gone. then it lists all the artists
08:35:26sayoceanor albums
08:35:29sayoceanif i choose albums
08:35:31Paul_The_NerdSee, you need to be explicit.
08:35:35Paul_The_NerdYou said that it displays "before" them
08:35:47Paul_The_NerdBut you never said it clears.
08:35:55Paul_The_NerdIn a list, "before" is above.
08:36:22Paul_The_NerdIt shows .found (0) because when it starts searching it has not yet found any. With long lists, you may actually see that number increase briefly as it goes.
08:36:44sayoceanhuh? i said "[01:32] <sayocean> it also says "searching.found (0)" or something liek that right before it lists the artists or albums"
08:36:52sayocean'right before'
08:36:54Paul_The_NerdBefore it lists
08:36:57Paul_The_NerdYou did not say it clears
08:37:04sayoceanmy bad
08:37:09sayoceanis that normal?
08:37:24Paul_The_Nerd"Before it lists" could very easily mean "Above the list" as any text above a list is before it on the screen
08:37:42sayoceani have 50+ gigs.. so i have tons of artists.. then why wouldnt it say foudn (250)
08:37:44sayoceanor something like that?
08:38:14Paul_The_NerdBecause it disappears too quickly?
08:39:28Paul_The_NerdTry it with a particularly long list.
08:39:31Paul_The_NerdLike All Songs
08:39:39Paul_The_NerdSee if it visibly increases before it clars
08:39:59scorchemidkay: got some 2300 mAh fine...still trying to figure out what went wrong with the other ones
08:40:34midkayscorche, good that they work but still odd, yeah. surely other people have used 2400mAh ones.. but i've never heard of such a thing happening like your problem.
08:40:50 Join spitball [0] (
08:41:10scorcheit made me sad that they worked though
08:41:16scorchei wanted to hear the beeping again
08:41:31midkayhaha. keep a set of the 2400mAh ones around! :)
08:41:36midkayfor your beeping pleasure..
08:41:56scorchei do, but they only beeped that gets even odder =P
08:42:20midkayhaha, whoa..
08:42:21Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: Que?
08:42:27sayoceanwhen i shutdown the ipod while its updating tagcache, does it have to start it all over again?
08:42:57Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: I really couldn't say. I've not tested that one, and so far nobody's told me "Hey, it was updating, but I felt like shutting it off halfway through."
08:43:33sayoceanah fuck
08:43:35sayoceanit just froze on me
08:43:39sayoceani guess thats another issue
08:43:50sayoceanwhen you accidently press too many buttons/commands, it freezes up
08:44:20scorchenow i have to figure out if blue, red, or pure white LCDs would look better
08:44:29Paul_The_NerdI've never managed to freeze my ipod that way.
08:44:44Paul_The_NerdIn fact, the only time my ipod has ever frozen has been when the playback engine was being reworked this last week
08:45:12sayoceanive been browsing the rockbox forum
08:45:15Paul_The_NerdAnd the Data Aborts when we were trying to get Doom and Voice working, but that doesn't qualify since that was "We know this doesn't work yet, let's start trying it not-working to find out where it fails"
08:45:17scorcheonly time i have had an ipod freeze on me, was when it was low on
08:45:21sayoceanand the issuse that ive described are actually pretty common
08:45:48Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: Which issue? Because I've literally read every post in the last 4 months, and nobody has described an "It freezes when I press a bunch of buttons" bug.
08:46:01sayoceanlet me link you
08:46:07dj-fupwned by sarcasm
08:46:15sayoceanwho got pwnt?
08:46:33*Paul_The_Nerd waits for the link.
08:46:51*infamis plays jeopardy theme
08:46:53*sayocean looking for the link
08:47:11Paul_The_NerdI thought you said it was pretty common
08:47:20sayoceanit is
08:47:22sayoceanhold on my friend
08:47:50sayocean"Problems i am having with this is that some things if i skip a song foward, the whole frimware freezes. Also, there is a high pitch glitchy sound in the beginning of the song. The stopping while playing mp3s still occur, but not as much as the older frimware that i tryed. "
08:48:09Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: A) That has nothing to do with pressing multiple buttons at once
08:48:18sayoceani didnt say all at once
08:48:31Paul_The_NerdYou said too quickly
08:48:34sayocean[01:44] <sayocean> when you accidently press too many buttons/commands, it freezes up
08:48:47sayoceani said too many buttons slash commands
08:48:53Paul_The_NerdAnd do you mean "Ever"
08:48:58Paul_The_NerdOr do you mean within a short period of time?
08:49:07sayoceanwithin a short period of time
08:49:10Paul_The_NerdThen it's quickly
08:49:19Paul_The_NerdNow, if you read that post
08:49:23Paul_The_NerdHe describes "skipping forward"
08:49:26Paul_The_NerdWhich is in fact ONE button press
08:49:32sayoceanno quickly would be as if i was playing a video game that requires me punching the buttons like a maniac
08:49:34Paul_The_NerdThe reason his bug occurred was a problem with the playback engine itself
08:49:40Paul_The_NerdA problem that in fact does not exist in the CVS build
08:49:42sayoceanwhat im talking about is, pressing pause, to pause the song
08:49:49sayoceanthen pressing the select button
08:49:54sayoceanthen trying to go back to the song
08:50:36Paul_The_NerdOkay, and what does that have to do with his bug?
08:50:52sayoceanProblems i am having with this is that some things if i skip a song foward, the whole frimware freezes.
08:51:08Paul_The_NerdBut you just described Pause->Select->Play
08:51:21sayoceanit doesnt have to be "Pause , Select, Play"
08:51:36Paul_The_NerdYes, but see his bug we've already established is a playback system issue
08:51:39sayoceanin general, too many commands in a short period of time (call it "quickly" if you want to), it willf reeze it up
08:51:41Paul_The_NerdThat's not in the new CVS version
08:51:55sayoceanwell it just happened to me a few mins ago
08:52:05Paul_The_NerdSo, I would again ask that you show me evidence of this "Pressing too many buttons in a short to moderate amount of time" bug is common in the forums
08:52:17sayocean"Also, there is a high pitch glitchy sound in the beginning of the song. The stopping while playing mp3s still occur, but not as much as the older frimware that i tryed. "
08:52:26sayoceanand that one just sums it all up. its not my ipod at all
08:52:32Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: That bug too is fixed
08:52:32sayoceanits a common issue
08:52:47sayoceanjust read that forum from first to last
08:52:50sayoceanit might be fixed
08:53:08Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: That thread is quite full of bugs
08:53:08sayoceanbut what im saying is, you thought that the bugs/problems might have been an isolated issue with just my ipod, but its not
08:53:31Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: I told you I've literally read every post in the last 4 months. I was not joking
08:53:36Paul_The_NerdI have read every post in that thread.
08:54:00Paul_The_NerdThere are many different bugs covered in that thread
08:54:06Paul_The_NerdThe one you linked me to was fixed 2 days ago
08:54:12sayoceanyeh i noticed
08:54:20sayoceanim not saying that the bugs are still around
08:54:21Paul_The_NerdSo, the problem you are having NOW is not Common
08:54:25sayoceanexcept maybe the freezing up one
08:54:29infamisRound 2???
08:54:31sayoceani totally understand that
08:54:32Angel_of_DeathPaul_The_Nerd, another question
08:54:42scorchepopcorn anyone?
08:54:42Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: Then why did you say that YOUR problem was common in the forums?
08:54:42sayoceanmy point wasn't to argue that the bugs are still prevalent
08:54:56Paul_The_NerdAngel_of_Death: What can I do for ye?
08:54:56 Quit Kyomi ()
08:55:03sayoceanto prove my point that the bugs werent JUST for my ipod and not on other 5Gs
08:55:05Angel_of_Deathwhile im playing music, if i scroll thru my artist folder at a decent speed my music stops or skips
08:55:10Angel_of_Deathuntill i stop scrolling
08:55:13sayoceanangel, thats what happens to me too
08:55:18Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: But you just admitted that the problem you have ISN'T that one.
08:55:18sayoceanor at least it used to
08:55:20Angel_of_Deathbrother says this is due to the buffer running out
08:55:24Angel_of_Deathis there a way to prevent this?
08:55:28sayoceancopy paste paul ?
08:55:30Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: You disproved your own point.
08:55:44Paul_The_Nerd(1:54:18 AM) sayocean: i totally understand that
08:55:51Paul_The_NerdI assume that was in response to the last statement I made before it?
08:55:55sayocean1) point was , the bugs i used to have weren't just on my ipod
08:55:58VoltageXwell I've mastered helloworld, now what should I try :P
08:56:05sayocean2) the bug i have left on my ipod = freezing up on me
08:56:07sayoceanthose were my 2 poitns
08:56:11sayoceannothing else
08:56:20Angel_of_Deathwell Paul_The_Nerd is there a way to increase the buffer
08:56:24sayocean[01:54] <Paul_The_Nerd> So, the problem you are having NOW is not Common
08:56:25Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: Yeah. Except you said that "and the issuse that ive described are actually pretty common"
08:56:29Angel_of_Deathso that it doesnt skip or stop
08:57:01sayoceanand ur right, the issues that i did describe a few days ago such as pausing up when scrolling and making screeching noises for the first second when i skip songs
08:57:08Paul_The_NerdAngel_of_Death: Skipping is most often caused by the CPU not keeping up. Pick a WPS without peakmeters, and don't use the equalizer. The buffer size doesn't matter usually, because if the CPU can't keep 1k filled, it certainly can't keep 5mb or more filled
08:57:25Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: You weren't talkign about the days ago issues though. You were talking about issues you had now.
08:57:37Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: There's no point in complaining NOW about bugs that no longer exist.
08:57:56Angel_of_Deathok guess ill stick with it then, cause i love my waps and my meters And my bass =) lol
08:57:57Paul_The_NerdYou said specifically that there's an issue where you press accidentally too many buttons
08:57:58sayoceanlol but i wasnt complaining, i was only complaining about the FREEZING up issue
08:58:00sayoceannothing else
08:58:02Angel_of_Deaththanks for the advise tho
08:58:03Paul_The_NerdThen your next statement was that it was common
08:58:15sayoceanyeh it was a TOTALLY separate statement
08:58:21Paul_The_NerdHow could anyone infer that?
08:58:27sayoceangoing back to the issues i had few days ago
08:58:30Angel_of_DeathOH and another thing Paul_The_Nerd theres a way to page down on the 5g correct? so u dont have to scroll?
08:59:06Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: If you complain about a problem, then you say "and the issuse that ive described are actually pretty common" without describing ANY other issues, one can only assume the issues you refer to are the most recently described ones.
08:59:34sayoceanwell my bad on not being so explicit
08:59:35Paul_The_NerdAngel_of_Death: I don't believe there is a page down at the moment, but I'm not sure.
08:59:39 Join JazzBone [0] (
09:00:14Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: I already explained to you earlier in the conversation that you need to be explicit. Tell me, what clues in your conversation implicitly told a normal human that you had switched topics from "bugs that bother me now" to "Problems I had several days ago, but have not yet talked about today?"
09:00:43sayoceando i need to get down on my knees and say 'sorry' or something?
09:01:04sayoceani think we all get the point that the FAULT is on me for not being so explicit
09:01:13Paul_The_NerdWell, a "I'll try to be clearer next time" would be nice.
09:01:27sayoceanI'll try to be clearer next time
09:01:43Paul_The_NerdIt's very hard to help people if they switch pronoun targets without telling you.
09:01:45Angel_of_Deathdam straight u will

09:03:30sayoceanmines been goin for a few mins
09:03:39Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: You can check the status of it in the Debug menu
09:03:39Angel_of_DeathPaul_The_Nerd, Are you aware of the button button combo play + up / down which scrolls by pages?
09:03:41sayoceanim guessing tagcache is done once u can't hear the HD spin
09:03:46Angel_of_Deathhe must have been talking not about the 5g
09:03:50sayoceanhow do i do that paul?
09:03:57Paul_The_NerdAngel_of_Death: I'm aware of the combo, but wasn't aware you could do it properly on Ipod
09:04:15Angel_of_Deathsayocean, ive got 14gb used on my iPod
09:04:18Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: Go into the menu, choose Info, then Debug, then TagCache Status
09:04:52Angel_of_Deathguess its done
09:04:54Paul_The_NerdAnd you are using how new of a build?
09:05:00sayoceanbleeding edge
09:05:02sayoceanfrom like an hour ago
09:05:06Angel_of_Deathwell ur bleeding for it now
09:05:24Paul_The_NerdWell, perhaps the status doesn't work right on iPods yet, or has some other issue
09:05:33Paul_The_NerdWell, when the virtual HD LED stops blinking
09:05:45sayoceanu figure, with 50+ gigs , it would take a few mins, is that correct?
09:05:57sayoceanpaul, theres a virtual HD LED in the ipod?
09:06:00Angel_of_Deathwell mines 14gb and took me a few seconds
09:06:04Paul_The_Nerd"virtual" is the key word
09:06:06sayoceanoh right
09:06:07Paul_The_NerdUp near the clock
09:06:08Angel_of_Deathbut iwouldnt be surpised if it took u much longer

09:08:41sayoceanpaul, are you sure about TagCache updating each time I add new tracks via iTunes?
09:08:43BHSPitLappyby force
09:08:50dj-futhat's a good idea, BHSPitLappy
09:08:59midkayobjection: most combos are needed in one plugin or another..
09:09:02Angel_of_Deathwhy would u use itunes
09:09:23sayoceangood point
09:09:36Slasherisayocean: auto updating works only if dircache is enabled and tagcache is loaded to ram
09:09:43sayoceanis there a way to view both ID3 tags AND mp3s u have on ur F:
09:10:06Angel_of_Deathyes, load to ram
09:10:13Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: It *should* update each time. But that may not be working. If it isn't, a forced update should work anyway
09:10:41Angel_of_Deathoh, i have one new GMAIL

09:17:20Angel_of_Deathdont use it
09:18:04sayoceanso if you wanted to play an artist like Zebrahead, u just scroll down for 10 mins???

09:22:36infamisEasy solution: listen to a less variety of artists :)
09:22:42sayoceanis it an option as?
09:22:42Angel_of_Deathweve been over this
09:22:48Angel_of_Deathno its not
09:22:50Angel_of_Deathnot yet
09:22:52ashridahif it doesn't, it's a bug in the interface for the tag cache, because it's configurable for the file tree

09:26:09Angel_of_Deathummm not on 5g that we are aware of
09:26:19Angel_of_Deathsince the 5g doesnt have the right buttons lol

09:26:44Paul_The_Nerd"won't never" doesn't mean you will.
09:26:57infamisto me it does
09:27:17Paul_The_NerdIt just means that in the future, your action will not be to "never go back"
09:27:50Angel_of_Deathdouble negative!
09:28:15infamisto not go back but not do that only leaves one option
09:28:57 Quit dj-fu (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
09:29:16infamisnot 1 is not equal to 2, but not true is equal to false
09:29:21*amiconn notices how a simple mistake can start a lengthy discussion
09:29:22Paul_The_NerdAh, but "not go back" and "never go back" are two different things. Never implies that at no time in the future will he go back. Fortunately to us, it never IS the future, so he can always still "Not go back now"
09:29:53sayoceangot a question for you
09:29:54Angel_of_DeathPaul_The_Nerd, let it go lol
09:30:00*Paul_The_Nerd is just having fun.
09:30:05Paul_The_NerdWhat can I do for ya sayocean?
09:30:12Angel_of_Deathwhats the command to * what u say
09:30:16Angel_of_Deathsorry noob alert lol
09:30:19Paul_The_Nerd /me
09:30:26*Angel_of_Death thinks
09:30:31amiconnWell, one point was that I can't go 'back' because I never really used the apple fw, and even can't, because I don't have itunes installed
09:30:41sayoceanWhen i Browse my Artists, it displays A-M and stops.. and at the end of the last artist on M, Matchbox 20, theres an arrow ( ====> )... is there anyway to display N-Z ?
09:30:46Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: Are there any problems booting Apple OS on the Mini2g?
09:30:49sayoceani already reset my limit to the max
09:30:53amiconnI got my ipod for use with and hacking rockbox - only
09:30:54Angel_of_Deathtrue dat, i installed iTunes months ago
09:31:00*infamis blames amiconn for starting this
09:31:18Paul_The_Nerdsayocean: I can't answer that one. I've never had it stop like that with an arrow.
09:31:25ashridahit does for me too
09:31:28ashridahi presume it's currently a bug
09:31:48ashridahsince while it looks like it's a "page next" arrow, it doesn't actually do what it should.
09:31:54amiconnThe arrow is Slasheri's (non-working) attempt on chunked browsing
09:32:20ashridahbut yes. all hail the development cycle
09:32:21sayoceanash, so for now, we are shit outta luck?
09:32:28sayoceanand we just have to use the search function?
09:32:31ashridahsayocean: the search stuff works for me.
09:32:43amiconnI would prefer seeing it replaced by true chunked browsing, like the old db code did
09:32:44Slasheriamiconn: and that will be fixed soon, i am just working with proper chunked browsing implementation
09:32:56amiconnnice :)
09:33:21sayoceanami, could you explain to me how to use the text entry
09:33:33sayoceanits frustrating to say the least.
09:33:37Paul_The_NerdI think the text entry is explained in the IpodFAQ
09:33:42sayoceanit is
09:33:52sayoceanbut how do i move the cursor Below the separating line
09:33:57sayoceanso i can select or delete
09:34:26infamiskeeping going down
09:34:27Paul_The_NerdYou keep moving down until you're there?
09:35:01sayoceandoesnt work

09:36:47Angel_of_Deathi would try it.
09:36:53Angel_of_Deathbut im stealing songs from the internet =)
09:36:53sayoceanit works on mine too
09:37:10sayoceani just didnt realize the cursor itself doesnt show up when its below the line
09:37:14midkaythe internet's going to want its songs back sooner or later, Angel_of_Death..
09:37:18midkaystealing from the internet is not a good idea.
09:37:28infamisfrom the internet? the internets are gonna sue you
09:38:14Angel_of_Deathi honestly dont know whats gonna happen to musicians if ppl pirate all their music
09:38:20Angel_of_Deaththey cant rely just on concerts lol
09:38:53infamisI doubt it would ever come to that...everyone downloading & no more buying
09:39:06infamisI download a lot but I also buy a lot
09:39:21midkayAngel_of_Death, so you're worried about musicians going out of business from having their music pirated, while *you're* doing it yourself?
09:39:31sayoceang/ntie everyone
09:39:33Angel_of_Deathi only download now, i mean if i had money to spend i would buy the cd's of the artists i wanted to support tho
09:39:36sayoceanthanks for your help paul
09:39:59Angel_of_Deathmidkay, yep basically :P
09:40:22midkayAngel_of_Death, convincing argument.. ah, and the "i'd do the right thing if i could" excuse, nice choice :)
09:40:28Angel_of_Deathi mean downloading comes with its prices anyways, spyware lol

09:42:18Angel_of_Deathnot like shitty itunes

09:42:59Angel_of_Deathactually i use Bit torrent sometimes for music to, rarely tho... only when its like all the songs that artist has ever released, but besides that its limewire
09:43:03Angel_of_Deathanyways back to rockbox
09:43:05midkayalthough if you want to wait for Slasheri's answer.. feel free.
09:43:07Slasheriyep, there it is
09:43:15midkaysurely none of us could manage to answer something that tough :)
09:43:28midkaysayocean, i'd strongly suggest going through all the options..
09:43:33infamisI don't like buying downloaded stuff period...I'd rather buy the real physical object
09:43:37midkayyou'll know where they are and get everything set up the way you want it..
09:43:48sayoceanslash, another question
09:44:01sayoceanso for the time being, theres a limit to how many artists A-Z can be displayed?
09:44:06Angel_of_Deathi dont, not with cd's that way they are now lol
09:44:08sayoceanon browse artists?
09:44:19Angel_of_Deathlol i like that whole sony incident :P
09:44:21Slasherisayocean: currently yes, but that limit can be increased
09:44:31Slasheriyou can increase the max files in a dir setting
09:44:34Angel_of_Deathoh we didnt relize we were tracking information on ur computers with our recent cds
09:44:43sayoceanto 10K correct?
09:44:47 Part Paul_The_Nerd
09:44:52sayoceaneven if i do that, it only displays A-Z :(
09:44:59Galoisa normal CD is actually pretty good value for the money, especially used
09:45:04sayoceanoh Nevermin
09:45:08Galoisthe problem is that you can't hardly buy normal CDs anymore
09:45:12sayoceanmaybe restarting changed that
09:45:22Galoisall you get now is this DRM'd copy protected fake CD
09:45:31Angel_of_Deathand u cant do anything with them, well u can
09:45:36Angel_of_Deathbut its harder then it should be
09:45:43Angel_of_Deathu bought it u should be able to do what u wish with it
09:45:45Galoisthat's the real crime, that the music industry is not even interested in helping out their legitimate customers
09:46:18sayoceanslash, one last question
09:46:30Slasherihehe, please just ask ;)
09:46:33Angel_of_Deathit's dumb that they are doing that, because the people who dont buy still dont, and the people who rip it off there CD's still manage to
09:46:34sayoceanis there a way to scroll up or down faster when browsing the artists or tracks?

09:58:37Galoisdidn't tetris get caught up in a big copyright (not patent) brouhaha?
09:58:37Aveeverything went smoothly
09:58:53HClas far as i know, in order to get copyright on an idea, you need a patent.
09:59:04HClthat's what patents are for
09:59:38GaloisTTC has licensed the Tetris mark to a number of companies, but courts have not decided on the legality of tetromino games that do not use the Tetris name.
09:59:40GaloisAccording to circulars available from the United States Library of Congress, a game cannot be copyrighted (only patented), which would invalidate much of TTC's copyright claim on the game
09:59:56Galoisso, basically, HCl, you're right, but it hasn't stopped people from trying
10:00:34bancusIs there any way to shuffle the contents of a parent directory, rather than just a leaf directory?

10:00:53Mikachuyou mean without shuffling the contents of the leaf directories?
10:00:59Mikachuin that case no

10:01:43bancusDo I need to make them a playlist in order to shuffle them?
10:01:47Galoisugh, I'm not into mailing lists
10:01:49Mikachujust add the Artist directory recursivery

10:27:41bancusMikachu: I'm pretty sure that's untrue.
10:27:49AveI hope linux can do transparent file renaming then...
10:27:51Mikachui think the codepage is only for tags but that could be wrong
10:27:54dj-fufat32 needs utf8 for international haxinating
10:27:55bancusI believe you can use whatever 8-bit encoding with vfat.
10:28:23Mikachuyou can, but it specifies some sort of unicode internally

10:28:53Mikachuif you mount with -o utf8 and use utf8 in linux, it will work

10:29:07Avebut I'm not using utf8 in linux :(
10:29:15Aveall my files are in latin1
10:29:17Mikachuyou can probably use some -o iocharset and stuff

10:29:44Aveyes I'll go read the manpage

10:30:46bancusI have music in English, Russian, German, Spanish and Italian
10:31:25Mikachumy only problem is most linux apps use utf8 with id3v2.3 which is wrong, so i had to hack the tag reading in rockbox a bit
10:32:03RedBrevaCan someone help me with a nooby style linux question? I have created a link to the simulator, but can't see how to add the −−background parameter (VMWare Rockbox Buils + KDE)

10:32:45Aveyes I hope that too
10:32:52Avebut at the time there are some "kinks"
10:33:09Avethe more out of the box os's will use utf8, the better
10:33:11Galoisand you can't just stick your head in the sand on the grounds that you personally only know english. Even the most die-hard rednecks need to know how to calculate the length of a string and basic shit

10:37:27Mikachuamiconn: i found that it works with utf8 but the normal text viewer recently doesn't
10:37:37Galoisyea the text _viewer_ doesn't work with non-ascii
10:37:44Mikachuit used to though
10:37:47Mikachubut now it just shows crap
10:37:55amiconnMikachu: The text viewer uses your default codepage setting. text_editor does not.
10:38:11Mikachuwell, i've got that set to utf8 unless it changed back on me
10:38:18Mikachuwhich it very well might have...
10:39:56amiconnWell I've set my codepage to latin1, and the viewer shows everything like it should.
10:40:37GaloisI set the default codepage to utf8 and still the viewer only partially works
10:40:53Galoismany glyphs show ? in the text viewer (the same characters display fine in the file browser and WPS)
10:41:08Mikachuthe text viewer doesn't line break multibyte correctly

10:44:43ashridahor adding them based on your current genre, etc
10:45:10Mikachuwebguest50: i believe the databox plugin sort of might do what you want
10:45:28Mikachuit lets you create a search and save to a file
10:45:41Mikachuthen you can just select that file to perform the search and create a playlist
10:46:06webguest50oh ok, I saw something about them here

10:54:44webguest50how is tagcache useful in the latest version?
10:55:03midkaywebguest50, what do you mean, how is it useful? if you find it useful, feel free to use it.
10:55:24webguest50if there a away to browse albums, or artists?
10:55:30ashridahwebguest50: it builds a tag database on the fly, so it can display by artist, album, etc.
10:55:36midkayyes, that's... the entire premise of tagcache.
10:55:46ashridahyou just need to wait until it's been generated, and then change the file view to Id3 mode
10:55:56midkaywhether you find that useful or not is user-specific.
10:56:47webguest50aha! I have to change the file view! I thought an additional view would appear somewhere
10:57:53ashridahwebguest50: hold down the menu button to get a quick-screen to change it
10:58:13ashridah(assuming that's how the quickscreen shows up on your platform, mind you)
10:58:41VoltageXashridah: (lagging behind here)... but IIS is a mess!
10:59:07ashridahVoltageX: sure, but you could just as easily make apache+linux look like a mess by rearranging the picture
10:59:14ashridahgraph drawing is *highly* subjective

10:59:31midkayno problem..

11:00:19VoltageXashridah: to mess up linux
11:00:26lostlogicamiconn: I'm not able to reproduce that bug, do you have the large-ish commit that I made last night in when you create it? That should be impossible after that patch.
11:00:47ashridahVoltageX: that's only going to break anything that's got the sticky bit set, it won't actually break much else.
11:00:48amiconnYes I have
11:01:01ashridah(ie, /tmp might be less functional than it was previously)
11:01:08ashridahit's certainly insecure, but that's much of a muchness
11:01:14lostlogicamiconn: weird.
11:01:21Mikachuashridah: it will break anything that checks for sane permissions
11:01:23Mikachuashridah: like ssh
11:01:30VoltageXashridah: rm -rf / will help then :D
11:01:39ashridahMikachu: that's hardly 'breaking linux'
11:02:40amiconnlostlogic: It's fairly easy reproducable here (although getting more than one track difference isn't that easy to reproduce)
11:03:34amiconnIf you're somewhere in a track, just skip back to the beginning, wait until it starts playing, then immediately skip back again.
11:03:44VoltageXnow that I've mastered hello world on rockbox, what should I try?
11:04:14amiconnIt shortly pauses, then continues playing the current track, but wps shows the previous track
11:05:25lostlogicamiconn: :( I can't get it
11:05:34lostlogicwait, just did.
11:05:35VoltageXamiconn: doing that on cvs a couple of weeks ago froze rockbox
11:06:14amiconnlostlogic: This difference then even stays if you again skip back to the beginning of the track
11:06:36lostlogicyeah, it'll stay until there's a 'successful' track change.
11:06:39amiconnIf you're skipping back or forth more than one track, it will eventually sync up again
11:08:28amiconnUgh! Hard freeze...
11:08:51lostlogicUgh! indeed, how to cause?
11:08:59lostlogicback skipping letting audio just start?
11:09:11amiconnThis was just while playing a track (with the wps offset by -1)
11:09:28amiconnIt seems it tried to buffer the next track since the current one was about to end
11:09:47lostlogicamiconn: yeah, that would make sense, if it thinks its playing a song its not.
11:10:54amiconnLet's see whether it's reproducable...
11:10:58webguest50is there a way to still play with rockbox while the ipod is plugged in via usb?
11:11:14lostlogicwebguest50: you have have it charging, but you cannot access it with your computer
11:11:23lostlogicwebguest50: hold menu while inseting USB
11:12:01lostlogicwebguest50: note, this charge mode is not right currently, and will take a very long time to charge, and if you have backlight always on, it will actually just slow battery drain, because we don't properly initialize USB charge mode.

11:34:17crashdall those cases that keep getting thrown out ? ;)
11:34:24crashdim merely speaking theoretically
11:34:57Galoiswell with rockbox some of the devs are in the US, which is way harsher towards this kind of thing
11:35:10amiconnlostlogic: Now I got an even more strange effect. I managed to trigger the wps offset. Then I left the track playing (real track 4, displayed track 3). After ~1 minute, it switched to playing the end of track 11, and then continued with track 12, all while still displaying track 3 (!!!)
11:35:19HClthe dmca allows getting around copyprotection for portability uses
11:35:25crashdGalois: yeah, but they can only sue individuals
11:35:29crashdand if it isnt an official patch
11:35:43lostlogicamiconn: filebufused got corrupted, and the buffer filled in circles, causing mass stupidity.
11:35:51Galoisthe letter of the dmca allows it, but the courts have ruled the other way anyway
11:36:02Galoisthe interoperability clause of the DMCA is a big joke
11:36:06HCldmca is evil.
11:36:31crashdthe dmca is a joke
11:36:37crashdyou guys are getting screwed
11:36:47linuxstbcrashd: Apart from the possible legal problems, I think a lot of people take the view that DRM is evil and we shouldn't encourage users to use it by implementing it in Rockbox.
11:36:52lostlogicamiconn: the filebufused variable wants to die, but I haven't come up with a good scheme for killing it quite yet.
11:37:00Galoistheir interpretation seems to be (as far as I can tell): by making rockbox (or DeCSS, or whatever) free software, you give the user extra rights that they didn't have before under the closed system
11:37:03crashdlinuxstb: i take the same view, i was just musing really
11:37:11Galoistherefore you are not protected by the interoperability excuse
11:37:40lostlogicdoing tracks as a linked list and tracking the file buf's status based on where tracks adn their codecs start might be a solution to it.
11:37:42HCllinuxstb: nice one, i second that.
11:38:30lostlogicamiconn: I will try to reproduce that bug with logf.
11:40:16*amiconn now has an i2c driver for the PCF that adapts the delay to the cpu clock
11:41:17 Join obo [0] (
11:41:21amiconnStill not the gain I would expect to see, but it brings down cpu power consumption at 11MHz from 50% to 20% (polling main + remote buttons)

11:47:27 Join _FireFly_ [0] (
11:50:57amiconnHmm, interesting. The PCF i2c pins in the H300 are shared with the serial eeprom i2c (which we don't use yet), and they are the same pins as for the seriall eeprom in the H1x0
11:51:23lostlogicamiconn: your bug will only happen when the skip back would be on buffer, and it would wrap around the buffer, I think.
11:52:08amiconnSo it should be possible to read the serial eeprom on H300 with no extra driver. Just a different device address...
11:52:22*amiconn is curious what's in there.

11:55:11amiconnWe use half of it afaik
11:55:32t0masamiconn: and how big is the iriver H1xx/H3xx eeprom?
11:55:37amiconnBut rockbox has 2 settings parts, the first of which is rather small, and could be stored in the eeprom.
11:56:05amiconnThis 2-part split is because the archos recorders have a 44-byte RAM in the RTC
11:56:23t0masah ok
11:56:32t0masresume position might be handy to store in eeprom?
11:56:36Avehm hey, so I copied files with -o utf8, file browser shows things incorrectly ( missing) but playback screen shows em ok, default codepage is set to utf8, hm?
11:56:42t0masas that would make it possible to shutdown without spinning up the disk

12:40:08myth1I need some help for 1st time install rockbox to the h320. I have downloaded the h300.hex, patched it and flashed it. I put all contents of the into the root of the h320, but when I start, it just boots into the iriver firmware. did I miss something?
12:40:30linuxstblowesch: Firstly, just try downloading a new "" from the website and unzip that to your ipod.
12:40:41Moosmidkay; hehe, k ; )
12:40:53AveGalois: ah great stuff, thanks
12:41:09linuxstblowesch: I would be surprised if the bootloader installation is wrong - if it's displaying that message, it should mean it's working.
12:41:09AveI was running cvs as of this morning tho, before this config change
12:42:07loweschlinuxstb: I remember, I think i screw it up yesterday (or this morning) gotta go restore it on my windows machine, then try again. I have no doubt that it will work then.
12:42:08Avebtw while using the ipod_fw tool the last phase can be misunderstood, even if I use -g nano the output doesnt mention nano at all!
12:42:17Avecreating <everything else> compatible ...
12:43:21loweschbut, one more question: is it "ipod_fw -o apple_os.bin -e 0 (zero or O) bootpartition.bin" here i se that it is 0 or ?
12:43:58loweschok thank you.
12:45:40loweschAnd ofcourse, thank you for one wonderful and interesting piece of software =)
12:46:15midkaylinuxstb, do you know anything about the battery in various iPod models?
12:46:23midkayi can't find any mAh values anywhere.
12:46:34midkayi semi-remember hearing something around 450mAh..
12:47:21AveGalois: the debug battery info shows "battery: charged", however the status bar bat symbol is.. I must have misinterpreted it

12:47:34Avethe trickle symbol is few pixels wide alternating white/grey?
12:47:58Galoisthe trickle symbol has two alternating images
12:48:08Galoisthe charging symbol goes through at least three images in a cycle
12:48:14linuxstbmidkay: There's an ipod battery faq site on the web - ask Google. I think that has the mAh values for the different ipods.
12:48:21Avecheck that.
12:48:22amiconn@ devs: would this patch considered an additional feature? I think it is, but then it would be nice to have in 3.0...
12:49:40linuxstbI'm relaxed about adding new features to plugins. I think it's only the core we need to be strict about.
12:49:56midkayGalois, thank you, very helpful :)
12:50:08midkaydoes anyone have any info as to the nano and 5G? that'd be good to have..

13:17:39VoltageXlostlogic: ok
13:17:40crashdwell, it's in cvs, but it doesnt do anything, afaik
13:18:18VoltageXcrashd: unfortunately I don't know enough to make it work myself, and I really want tracker music
13:18:21pussfelleryup linuxstb that did it
13:18:38crashdVoltageX: yeah, don't we all, i imagine at some point it'll be integrated as a codec, but right now it does nothing
13:18:49VoltageXcrashd: and it's not looking good, because the cvs is 4-12 months old in that directory
13:19:16crashdVoltageX: well, that just means no one has touched it, it doesnt mean there's anything wrong with the libdumb build in there.
13:19:30crashdi assume whatever changes were made to make it integer only can easily be done against a newer source
13:19:36crashdbut, as ive said, there's no integration
13:20:00VoltageXcrashd: do you know how to put it into the makefile so it gets built?
13:20:25ep0chlinuxstb: hi, i'd like to try SID out on my ipod, is there a patch around i can use?
13:20:32moochto backup the ipod, a "dd if=/dev/sde of=backup.ipod" should be sufficient, right?
13:20:56linuxstbep0ch: It should be on the patch tracker soon.
13:21:17ep0chah cool
13:21:34***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
13:21:50linuxstbmooch: Yes - but probably overkill. You really just need to backup the boot partition (/dev/sde1), and maybe the MBR (the first sector).
13:22:12midkayep0ch / linuxstb - SID?
13:22:26linuxstbYes, the author of "tinysid" has ported it to Rockbox.
13:22:30crashdSID, the c64 sound chip
13:22:54VoltageXlinuxstb: ooh, first step for tracker music
13:23:02midkayah, interesting..
13:23:05moochlinuxstb: i want to backup my music too... dont want to have to transfer everything again...
13:23:33linuxstbmooch: If I was you, I would just backup your music by copying the contents of the FAT32 partition. But it's up to you.
13:23:53moochlinuxstb: the problem is that i need to "dd if=/dev/null of=/dev/ipod" because the file system claims to be locked and is mounted read-only under linux
13:24:02moochlinuxstb: no fat32 here, but hfs+
13:24:30linuxstbHave you tried rebooting your Linux PC?
13:24:40moochlinuxstb: copying the content will not work if once i clean the hard disk it still claims it can only be mounted read-only
13:24:47moochlinuxstb: me?
13:25:00moochseveral times
13:25:13linuxstbBut if you just backup using "dd", then when you restore it, you will get an identical ipod.
13:25:15moochi have tried mounting the ipod in several machines...
13:25:16lostlogicare there any codecs that do _not_ use the malloc buffer?
13:25:43moochlinuxstb: the problem is that once i clean it, i might have the problem that i cannot write to the disk under linux
13:26:10moochlinuxstb: so in that case, yes, I would like to restore it to the original state
13:26:40linuxstbHave you successfully written to the ipod in the past? IIUC, HFS+ write support is a relatively new Linux feature.
13:27:02moochlinuxstb: if once i rewrite the disk with /dev/null and then i can write, i can clean up the backup... i have all the music i need to put back
13:27:30moochlinuxstb: sure, but i unplugged once the ipod without unmounting it (i was in a rush) and after that it can only be written under macosx
13:27:49moochwell, must go to the radio program now...

13:32:46crashdreal pain in the ass
13:33:03VoltageXwill I break my player if I force the fm frequency on rockbox waaay too low?
13:33:06amiconnMost often this is caused by explorer
13:33:08Galoiswhat you're looking at is windows suckage, not cygwin per se
13:33:16amiconn(@ crashd)
13:33:21crashdhehe, see, that's what i thought
13:33:36crashdhowever, it's fudged the perms so badly, even after a reinstall of windwows 12 months down the line, i cant delete an old cygwin install directory
13:33:46amiconncrashd: There's a workaround that avoids restarting windows:
13:33:47crashdand ive tried all sorts of ntfs permissions stuff to make it deletable
13:33:53crashdnonon, re INSTALLING
13:34:00crashdi had to for various reasons a few weeks back

13:35:38VoltageXok, I feel like a real noob now, how do I apply patches to rockbox?

13:39:08crashdcheck the wiki, there's a page for 'dealing with patches' and 'compiling'

13:44:47amiconnA bit more than H1x0
13:45:01VoltageXdoh it doesn't say
13:45:06linuxstbcrashd: If you're talking about the SID patch, then I made the diff a couple of hours ago. It should apply cleanly.
13:45:27crashdwell, the source tree ive got is from yesterday when i was toying with myth1's source build
13:45:41amiconnmidkay: There's only one way to make sure: open a H300 and check
13:45:43linuxstblostlogic made a change to the codec api - you need the latest CVS.
13:45:44crashdand it applies fine, but doesnt build, but i think that the source tree is a bit of a state

13:57:23marevaloamiconn: yep there are a couple of bugs there
13:57:33amiconnIt doesn't crash, but displays wrong pieces, and some gfx trash. A simple reset fixes this

14:00:09marevaloso what is the freeze policy about plugins? I was going to start mark2 on chessbox (menus and a whole lot batch of new options)
14:00:22amiconnWell, it would protect users from ugly experiences like this.
