#rockbox log for 2006-05-03

00:00:27amiconnBagder: One of the build servers is causing major lags...
00:01:58Mikachucan't you send out the same job to many servers and just take the first that finishes?
00:02:08Mikachuwell, obviously you can, but is it a bad idea?
00:02:28BagderMikachu: not if you can stop the other ones' jobs at that point
00:02:47Bagderin general they all build
00:02:59amiconn639 seconds for the H300 build...........
00:03:00Bagderits just towards the end that only some servers build
00:03:23 Quit Ribs ("Leaving")

00:04:34amiconn639 seconds is more than my pathetic cygwin takes for H300

00:08:32*amiconn wonders whether it would be a good or bad idea to enable m68k builds for his server
00:08:52t0masdo we support ipod mini 4g's?
00:09:01linuxstbThere is no such thing.
00:09:02amiconnThere are no mini 4g's
00:09:10Mikachunot that either i think
00:09:11 Quit midkay (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
00:09:36amiconnI now have a working m68k-elf-gcc on amd64, but with the circumvent-the-failing-check patch. I wonder whether this might hit us in some way
00:10:22 Quit psii ()
00:10:53linuxstbt0mas: But I think the answer is yes - Rockbox works on both types of mini - first and second generation, and any disk capacity.
00:11:41t0masthat was indeed the question
00:12:00t0masbut they person I'm talking to thinks he has an ipod mini 4th generation
00:12:25amiconnThere are only 1st and 2nd gen minis
00:12:33linuxstbYou should ask if the disk capacity is written on the back. If it is, then it's a 2nd gen, otherwise a 1st gen.
00:13:00amiconnFirst gen was 4GB (and perhaps 2GB - not sure). Second gen is 4GB and 6GB
00:13:15Mikachuoh, i thought it was 3 and 6, there i go
00:14:11amiconn(and second gen has way better battery life, and the more powerful CPU (but we don't clock it faster in cvs than 1st gen and other ipods)
00:14:12 Quit shadou (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
00:15:08linuxstbYes, according to Apple, the 1st gen gets 8 hours, the 2nd gen gets 18 hours...
00:15:40amiconnI get 11 hours with rockbox, mp3 playback

00:17:17amiconnHehe :)
00:17:30preglowi don't think i can get 11 with my nano
00:17:47amiconnand also the most scratch-resistant (together with mini 1st gen of course) :-P
00:18:41linuxstbApple's claims are: 60GB 5g - 20 hours, 30GB 5g - 14 hours, Nano - 14 hours, Color/Photo - 15 hours, 4g - 12 hours, 1g-3g - 8 hours.
00:19:06markunamiconn: I'm here now
00:19:15linuxstbOdd that the Color/Photo is claimed to perform better than the Nano - it seems to be a _lot_ worse with Rockbox.
00:19:44amiconnmarkun: Hope you don't mind that I've committed your playercredits patch meanwhile. It's working fine...
00:20:02markunno, I don't mind it at all
00:20:09t0masanybody here into podcasting?
00:20:11amiconnlinuxstb: That points towards bad disk performance in rockbox
00:20:36t0masI'm talking to the development team at podshow (Adam Curry's company -
00:20:49t0masthinking about some interesting podcast features to add to rockbox
00:21:00t0masto make it more attractive than the original ipod firmware for example
00:21:16linuxstbIsn't the main issue the PC side of things? i.e. downloading and syncing.
00:21:29t0masthey're working on some syncing
00:21:40t0masdeveloping their own downloading tools
00:22:04t0masit's closed beta now, so I can't really say anything other than "looks really promising"
00:22:35amiconnlinuxstb: Here's my coarse estimation what I would expect from current rockbox: 60GB 5g - 12 hours, 30GB 5g - 8.5 hours, Nano - 8.5 hours, Color/Photo - 9 hours, 4g - 7 hours.
00:23:08amiconnI guess we are below that for all mentioned ipods except nano?
00:23:28preglowespecially for 5g
00:23:36preglowand photo
00:23:46 Part left
00:23:47preglowwhat do you base those estimations on?
00:24:15amiconnJust my numbers (and the nano's) compared to apple's promises
00:24:30preglowwhat kind of disk is in the minis, btw?
00:24:33amiconnWe should measure disk performance...
00:24:43amiconnHitachi microdrive
00:24:52*goffa___ would believe amiconn over apple
00:25:21amiconnI.e. mechanical disk, but with very low inertia. 500ms spinup time...
00:25:29goffa___just like cowon... 35 hours on the x5l.. pfft
00:25:55amiconngoffa___: I do believe that it reaches 35 hours with stock firmware
00:26:06amiconnrockbox' codecs still need optimisation work
00:26:24amiconn(not only the codecs though)
00:26:37preglowno, not only, but they are a big part of it
00:26:38goffa___amiconn: i don't believe that... well if you run 96kbps ogg with no random on, low volume, and never fire up the lcd
00:26:45goffa___then you may get close
00:27:03amiconnMy guess is that mp3 performs significantly better than ogg
00:27:23goffa___well ok.. at the same bitrate
00:27:26amiconn(if cowon uses the motorola codec, which I woul dexpect)
00:27:32amiconnNot at the same bitrate
00:27:41amiconnat roughly same quality
00:27:43goffa___well then according to my tests, you are wrong :)
00:28:09preglowsounds unlikely
00:28:17preglowdoes x5 support mp2 and mp1?
00:28:34goffa___for vid?
00:28:41preglowfor music
00:28:50goffa___don't think so

00:29:00preglowthen odds are good again they use the motorola codec
00:29:08preglowin which case there's no chance in hell ogg outperforms it

01:10:24midkayuser01, no, completely written from-scratch.

01:11:59midkaya latex system?

02:36:19afruff23without an accessory
02:36:29Paul_The_Nerdafruff23: Some iPods' headphone jack doubles as a line in.
02:37:00linuxstbMost of the ipods have a line-in in the dock connector.
02:37:02afruff23because a lot of accessories communicate with the iPod in a proprietary fashion
02:37:11linuxstb(plus the headphone socket thing...)
02:37:14afruff23and that's going to have to be reverse-engineered I believe

02:44:15zewell if you know its not compressed, then why even bother asking if its lossless?
02:44:26afruff23I didn't know that
02:44:50zeanyway, i think rle is lossless compression anyway (not entirely certain, but pretty sure)
02:45:20zeso either way, its either lossless, or its not but not lossy still

03:16:27stevenmHello. Weird bug in the MIDI codec. I will look into it in a bit, maybe you guys have some insights.
03:17:01stevenmYou play a file six times. It will work. Seventh time, you hear pops but no music. Eigth time, it locks up during loading, hard lockup, not even backlight turns off
03:17:29stevenmIt is the same, with files that are small and large, those that need a little bit of instruments and those who that need a whole bunch of instruments to be loaded
03:17:53stevenmTested five times. Always the same result, always plays six times, seventh is silence / pops, eigth is hard lock.
03:18:17stevenmIf you power off and then back on after 6 attempts, the cycle resets - you get 6 more plays before silence is heard.
03:18:27Paul_The_NerdSo, memory leak of some sort?
03:18:35stevenmI have no idea

04:07:47maeckfrom a colour perspective that is
04:08:11sharpei'm not too sure
04:09:09maeckI thougt I had seen 4 bit bitmaps in the plugins folder. However, lcd16bit does only colour or black/white
04:09:25Paul_The_Nerdmaeck: The primary UI is one or 16 I *think*. The WPS is 1, 2, or 16. Some plugins have the grayscale lib, which is umm... something-bit.

04:12:30Paul_The_Nerdmaeck: Any colour bitmap (which should be 8 or 24) will be scaled to whatever the screen natively supports when used in plugins, I believe. Any one-bit that's saved in the mono folder gets treated as a proper mono bitmap and uses FG colour.
04:13:08Paul_The_NerdBy 'natively' I mean, 2 or 16 bit, so far.

04:25:25Paul_The_Nerd24bpp is common, as we said.
04:25:34afruff23is 16 bpp not supported because it's an "odd number"
04:25:36afruff23so to speak
04:26:02maeckokay, so far I have found lcd bitmap draw functions for 1, 2 and 16 bit images. None that do 4 or 5 bits. Any targets that do more that white, light grey, dark grey and black (except for colour targets)?
04:26:28Paul_The_Nerdmaeck: As I said, only using the grayscale library.
04:26:40maecksometimes 16 bit is scaled to 15 bit + alpha bit (5 bits for RGB)
04:27:20Paul_The_Nerdafruff23: It's less that, than why even bother to support 16bpp? 24bpp means that future targes with better colour depth (if we ever support it) can use WPSes made now without a problem, leaving 16-bit out saves a wee bit of code, and then 8 and 1 cover paletted bitmaps and mono-bitmaps.
04:27:37maeckPaul_The_Nerd: and and by greyscale library you mean?
04:28:00Paul_The_Nerdmaeck: The grayscale library... it's used in a few plugins to allow greater than 2bpp on 2-bit LCDs.

08:07:33stevenmB4gder, oh noes
08:07:47B4gder0 is line level
08:08:07stevenmi been busy with my own bug.. no time :(
08:08:31stevenmwhy not switch to normal scale? it wouldnt confuse people so much? or an option?
08:08:42stevenmnot everyday you see an mp3 player that shows volume in db scale
08:08:56B4gderwe've discussed this to death already
08:09:08B4gderdB has a meaning
08:09:11B4gderno other scale has
08:09:43stevenmmaybe wps needs to put a dB next to it or something. but i digress
08:09:51RedBrevaMorning All... Any iPod 5G users about? I could do with the themes downloaded from being tested on real hardware. I have tried them on the sim and they *seem* OK..
08:10:05stevenmany chance you could kill that build for me? if i broke something, i really wanna fix it before too many people get mad
08:10:27B4gderstevenm: i already did, but it won't start a new build until next commit
08:10:47stevenmB4gder, ah, alright, thanks. should i commit something trivial then?
08:12:01midkayRedBreva, perfect timing, i just screwed over my 5g :)
08:12:05midkaygot to reinstall many themes..
08:12:20RedBrevahehehe, I am sorry for your loss :D

08:16:46Galoisright now many of the fonts in rockbox literally only work with the default theme
08:18:11hardeepthe current default theme will still be available for people who want to use those fonts
08:18:39Galoisthat's a halfway solution...

08:19:05midkaybtw, was it B4gder who suggested Boxes as the default?
08:19:38B4gderfor color devices I'd suggest a more colorful default
08:19:47Galoisboxes is one of the least compatible, font-wise
08:19:50midkayhm, i wonder who it was..
08:19:55midkayGalois, true..
08:19:59B4gdermidkay: why does it matter?
08:20:26midkayB4gder, because i thought it was a rather good suggestion. someone here suggested it.. that kind of motivated me to make a 320x240 version.
08:21:19stevenmB4gder, yay, all green
08:22:08Galoismost of the CustomWPSs use a 13 pixel font of some sort. This would be the font size to choose if you must have a graphical default wps with fixed font sizes.

08:29:02midkayor just not include them? :) since it's unofficial it seems rather useless to include them there..
08:29:35B4gderlots of people use them
08:29:36RedBrevaWell you could put that argument against the 5G WPS's in total...!
08:29:48RedBrevaand all the other iPods
08:29:57midkayis this for 3.0 or what?
08:30:40midkaythey're fine to keep if it's not, but if this is like a 3.0 "wps list", the albumart ones are *not* compatible and i don't think they should be on that list.. maybe in another "custom build" category or something..
08:31:09Galoisthe rockbox wiki also has albumart ones intermingled with the rest
08:31:12B4gderI consider it "The Rockbox Themes Site"
08:31:18B4gdernot connected to any release at all
08:31:22RedBrevaMainly, it's just a tidier, and more controlled method of presenting WPS's than the wiki... many of those are broken
08:32:08midkayGalois, well, that should be changed or specified..
08:32:31midkayanyways, /me withdraws his opinion. :)
08:32:41B4gderin some camps the album-art patch is widely used
08:33:13B4gderlike in the MR camp

08:33:30 Quit stilldave ()
08:33:36midkayif this is going to be provided with 3.0, however.. that should be changed.
08:33:47B4gderthey're not
08:33:51B4gderthat's just a themes site
08:33:56midkayat least categorized into "works with 3.0" and "requires unoffical patch" or something.
08:33:57B4gderit has nothing to do with 3.0
08:34:06midkayB4gder, alright, so, i withdrew my opinion. :)
08:34:29B4gderfor included themes we of course need stricter requirements
08:34:42*midkay nods
08:35:14midkaybtw, before i forget, did you catch that "source" icon i threw together?
08:35:15RedBrevaare there any docs that specify the requirments for WPS's?
08:36:23B4gderthere are no requirements
08:37:01B4gdersince they're just custom layouts
08:37:04RedBrevaoopps, I meant themes
08:37:27B4gderI don't understand anyway
08:37:33B4gderwhat could a requirement be?
08:37:53RedBreva<B4gder>for included themes we of course need stricter requirements
08:38:15midkay(that last message was directed at B4gder *nudge nudge shove shove shove stab*) ;)
08:38:17B4gderaha you're talking about bundled themes now?
08:38:42B4gderthen of course they need to use only tags we support
08:39:03RedBrevaie non-patched
08:39:08B4gderand I would like us to provide a similar set for all platforms
08:39:12B4gderlike we do with boxes now
08:39:26B4gderlike 3 themes for each target
08:39:43B4gderand then direct people to the themes site for further extravaganza

12:05:04linuxstbTaking the LCD code as an example, the exported API is in firmware/export/lcd.h, but it is implemented in various .c files in firmware/drivers. There are probably about 8 or 9 LCD-related .c files, but each target will only use one or two of them (the high-level framebuffer drawing code specific to the LCD format - 1bpp, 2bpp, 16bpp etc, and the low-level device driver).
12:09:27amiconnThe 1bpp driver don't use that separation yet

12:15:28linuxstbIMO, the best approach to documentation would be to document the internal APIs in Rockbox, starting with the plugin API, the codec API, the multi-screen GUI API.
12:16:02 Join skwad [0] (
12:16:03linuxstbThat, and some high-level overview documents (a lot of which already exist) would go a long way. I'm not sure of the value of documenting every single function.

12:30:31Byronin your guys opinion, what is the best hard-drive based Iriver that works with Rockbox and can use the accessability features like talking directories? I know that the Archos Recorder 20 is the best for Archos but what is the simular model for Iriver?
12:31:15B4gderByron: all swcodecs speak directories etc the same way
12:31:35Byrongood, I thought so, but I wanted to make sure I mentioned that.

12:34:57Byronwhat models are there in the h1x0 series?
12:35:08Maxou`h120 & h140 i think
12:35:16B4gderand the older h100
12:35:29B4gderbut none of them are made anymore
12:35:54whatboutbobH100 changed names to H110...there's also the H115.
12:36:12whatboutbob...but the H120 and H140 are going damn cheap on ebay atm.

12:44:23theli_uazigford, yeah ... there are a LOT optimisation to do :)
12:45:05zigfordtheli_ua: Yes, but even getting to this stage is awsome!!
12:45:06theli_uaand it is unplayable for ipods now due to controls... that would be my next patch :D
12:45:28theli_uazigford, thanks go to original porters of gnuboy to rockbox :)
12:45:48Byronthe h120 is not being made any more, it seems the cheapest I can get is 149, with 20 shipping
12:45:55Byronis that about right?
12:46:02linuxstbtheli_ua, zigford: I think Rockboy outputs audio at 11.025KHz - the ipod port doesn't handle that yet (but it's on my to-do list).
12:46:37theli_ualinuxstb, yeah ... but anyway rockboy needs a lot of optimisations to work nicer :)
12:46:40zigfordtheli_ua: The controls are working in Alien 3
12:47:19theli_uazigford, well ... they work .. but for no select is mapped to menu by default and the only usable controls are up-down-left-right
12:47:37zigfordthats all i need for tetris

12:51:27Rob2222Do you know, that there are rare HARD-LOCKs at the iriver H300?
12:51:33Genre9mp3Oh, Ok
12:51:40Genre9mp3thanx for clearing that
12:51:49preglowgood lord, how the linux scheduler sucks ass
12:51:59Mikachupreglow: try -ck
12:52:14theli_uapreglow, there are number of schedulers ... try different :)
12:52:25preglowi'd rather use molnar's patches if i'm going to roll my own anyway
12:52:28whatboutbobpreglow: do you know if the 96khz recording was analysed for clicks and pops?
12:52:36Mikachuthose are only for guaranteed realtime iirc
12:52:54preglowwhatboutbob: probably wasn't, i just had slasheri test to see if my sample rate detection works, plus to see if if it recorded at all. why would it pop?
12:53:05preglowMikachu: i pretty much need realtime, obviously
12:53:11Rob2222All busy here... :)
12:53:15preglowtried -ck once, it was slightly better, but not by as far as i'd like
12:53:26Mikachupreglow: then use SCHED_RR?
12:53:36ByronI've read that the audio playback is a bit buggy on Rockbox for Iriver, can it deal with ogg well, or is it safe to assume that audio output is still pretty buggy
12:53:59preglowMikachu: if i ever figure out how to compile a kernel that actually boots with ubuntu afterwards, i'll try lots of stuff
12:54:16Rob2222Has someone got a hard-freeze at H300 when hitting Play and getting into pause mode with this? I got it, always the same, when hitting pause, but very rarely.
12:54:20preglowMikachu: right now i'm using realtime-lsm to give jackd realtime prio, and even with that, audio skips at 50ms latency
12:54:31skwadsouldn't just this here work ? %xdB;%xdT
12:54:46dongsall the .asm stuff is in GNU assembler syntax :(
12:54:46preglowMikachu: and if that is linux' definition of a realtime process, the scheduler sucks ass
12:55:10whatboutbobpreglow: someone was just asking me about it...apparently the jb3 (the current 'tapers choice' for budget optical recording) records 96khz w/ clicks and pops.
12:55:12Mikachuwell, linux isn't a realtime kernel so it probably is
12:55:37preglowwhatboutbob: well, i'll see if slasheri ever feels like doing a test for me
12:55:41linuxstbwhatboutbob: Does the jb3 support 24-bit?
12:55:48preglowwhatboutbob: he's the only guy i know of with 96khz caps
12:55:58whatboutbobpreglow: i know the jb3 and h1xx share a bit of h/w, so thought i'd check.
12:55:59 Nick skwad is now known as skwad-eat (
12:56:06preglowwhatboutbob: doubt they share the spdif interface
12:56:10preglowwhatboutbob: since it's on the coldfire chip
12:56:19whatboutbobif he feels like sharing the files i'd be happy to look at 'em.
12:56:31whatboutboblinuxstb: nope. 16bit only.
12:56:47Slasheripreglow: i had pops on it too, but i believe the bad cable caused it
12:56:48preglow16 bit only, why the hell
12:56:57preglowSlasheri: yeah, there's that
12:57:14Slasherias when i pushed in the cable very hard, the signal was clear
12:57:21linuxstbpreglow: Are you saying that spdif recording is nothing to do with the uda1380?
12:57:26Slasheribut that was really hard to do
12:57:29preglowlinuxstb: nothing at all
12:57:50preglowi think the spdif interface is just a straight optocoupler interfaced straight to the coldfire
12:58:12linuxstbSo the data isn't transferred via i2s? Or is there there some kind of internal i2s bus in the coldfire?
12:58:15whatboutbobslasheri: what setup are you using to test 96khz?
12:58:18preglowall i2s is internal
12:58:29linuxstbI thought there was i2s between the coldfire and uda?
12:58:39preglowlinuxstb: but no, no i2s for recording, the data goes straight from the spdif to the fifo
12:59:08preglowlinuxstb: disregard that last remark
12:59:16preglowlinuxstb: uda comms is i2s, yes, but not spdif
12:59:33preglowit's completely internal to the coldfire

13:00:17linuxstbDoes that mean it's possible to play back different data to the uda and spdif?
13:00:34preglowlinuxstb: not unless you use two separate fifos
13:00:37whatboutbobslasheri: miniplug converters can be finicky.

13:01:17preglowyeah, they can
13:01:44whatboutbobinteresting that slasheri's recordings were 'erroneous' and didn't just hang.

13:05:49linuxstbNo idea, I'm just curious to know what's possible...
13:06:08linuxstbMaybe the spdif could output unaltered audio (bypassing the DSP)...
13:06:32preglowi'd rather have it altered
13:07:03linuxstbBut no, I can't think of any reason which is worthwhile..
13:07:04preglowbut sure, it is possible, it would just require two pcmbuf's, a separate interrupt driven output routine, etc

13:41:38B4gderMikachu: of course, MUCH larger
13:41:39dwihnoamiconn: yeah... silly, ain't it?
13:41:51*dwihno keeps a 320GB partition on a USB disk
13:42:10dwihno32GB limitation is just plain bullcrap.
13:42:26B4gderthat 32GB limit is just XP's limit where it refuses to format any larger
13:42:53amiconnFat32 has a theoretical limit of 8TB with max. in-specs cluster size
13:43:04dwihnoShould be enough for rockbox then.
13:43:12romanosuse ext3
13:43:26B4gder8TB should fit most of my music collection

13:49:49dongsfor car use? i guess.
13:50:17Jungti1234I understood, thanks
13:50:21B4gdermainly for in-case use, yes
13:50:31B4gderbanned in almost the entire Europe
13:51:02B4gderalthough there's new regulation coming up
13:51:09romanoswhat r u talkin about?

13:51:22amiconnI have read somewhere that fm transmitters are allowed now in germany

13:52:08dwihnoB4gder: you've read about the EU directive changing this sep. 1?
13:52:10amiconnHowever, an AUX input is tons better than fm transmission.
13:52:16B4gderdwihno: yes, that would be it
13:52:21amiconnI believe even a cassette adapter is better

14:36:04linuxstbSeems there may be some GPL infringement going on in the original firmware though. I downloaded the firmware update from www.ebaycool.bin, and "strings" shows that they are using avilib - - which is GPL'd.

14:49:12preglowdonkeyx: compared to what? retailos? if so, it should be the same
14:49:19linuxstbpreglow: That's a difficult question. That will also cause amiconn headaches if he wants to unify the two mini builds.
14:49:35preglowlinuxstb: well, yeah, but there can be no question it needs to be done
14:49:48linuxstbdonkeyx: People have reported a background hiss on the 5g with Apple's firmware that disappears with Rockbox.
14:49:58theli_uawhat does 'prefetch abort' error generally mean ?
14:50:07B4gder"can't kmalloc hub descriptor" seems to be a linux usb stack rip...
14:50:07donkeyxso the quality is better with rockbox?
14:50:28linuxstbBut others have also reported a background clicking noise - but that's only detectable to me when playing silent audio files at high volumes.
14:51:02preglowtheli_ua: that an illegal unaligned memory access happened
14:51:04preglowtheli_ua: where'd you get that?
14:51:25theli_uapreglow, i'm just curious
14:52:25preglowtheli_ua: prefetch abort means that the core tried to run code from an area in the memory space that could not be read normally, i read 'data abort' up there
14:53:15amiconnpreglow: Do you really care about the 32KB extra iram on some ipods? The devices which would need it the most don't have it...
14:54:20linuxstbpreglow: Maybe something like ICODE_ATTR for code in iram on all targets, and platform-specific defines such as ICODE_ATTR_IPOD5G, ICODE_ATTR_X5 (more than one of which can be used with the same function) to implement differences between platforms.
14:54:23preglowamiconn: i would have expected you to be the last to advocate resource waste
14:54:33donkeyxlinuxstb: does the background clicking noise appear with rockbox or appleos
14:55:19linuxstbIt only appears with Rockbox I believe. But it's also only been reported by one person, who has very high sensitivity headphones. With normal headphones, I doubt you could detect it, even if you tried.
14:55:19preglowlinuxstb: yeah, something like that
14:55:36B4gderfor x5 I added a #define IRAM_LCDFRAMEBUFFER IDATA_ATTR
14:55:43B4gderwhich is empty for other targets
14:55:49preglowin codecs, we can use feature based defines. IRAM_FILTER, IRAM_HUFFMAN, etc
14:56:02donkeyxif it's only reported by one person, I think it's a bad audio file

14:58:45preglowforget the comment thing
14:58:46preglowit's at the top
14:59:45dj-fuhey, anyone here use gentoo?
15:00:11linuxstbamiconn: It was icode that didn't seem to make a significant difference. Data did. IIRC, pacbox even slowed down very slightly when I tried putting code in IRAM.
15:00:11amiconnI know. It seems code in iram has a slight effect. Otherwise the code should've gooten faster without -mlongcalls
15:01:01linuxstbAlthough do we use -mlongcalls in the codecs?
15:01:19amiconnStill, I wouldn't care about the extra iram on some ipods. While it is usually a good thing to tweak performance, it'll cause a shitload of ifdefing, which isn't worth the hassle imho
15:01:44linuxstbThere's the same issue on the X5 though.
15:02:07linuxstbAnd I'm sure we'll find other targets with either more or less than 96KB of IRAM.
15:02:25amiconnYes, sure, but these are completely different targets then
15:03:28preglowwhich means we'll get the ifdeffing anyway
15:03:32preglowin the very same places
15:03:56linuxstbI don't think we need #ifdefs, just defining different I???_* macros.
15:03:57preglowi've whining for more iram on coldfire too much to be able to ignore the extras here ;)
15:04:12preglowinsert "been" if inclined
15:05:18Mikachui probably don't know what i'm talking about now, but maybe the pp prefetches code so it doesn't matter much in which ram it was? i know the gba has some sort of prefetch feature for code
15:07:08preglowit would have to be very clever not to be impacted by type of ram it's reading from
15:11:55amiconnlinuxstb: How many of these I???_* macros would you want to define?

15:17:07preglowamiconn: not overly many. we'll stick with as many of the current ones as we can, preferably in the places which impacts all platforms the most, but for some spots of lesser importance, we might want to use some IRAM_ macros

15:50:46dongsi miss my ipod keyclick on scrolling/etc
15:50:53dongswas that removed for a reason?
15:51:14Genre9mp3In wps...hold-main,hold-remote and hold-both icons are only for iriver targets? Other targets only need just a single hold icon?
15:51:15LinusNdid we ever have clicking?
15:51:39dongsok, by "removed" i mean, its in apple firmware :)
15:52:27lamedtt, bagder, i just found it on irc today's log
15:54:56amiconndongs: That still doesn't mean we 'removed' it.
15:55:04amiconnIt's just not implemented yet
15:56:03Genre9mp3Which targets have remotes? irivers use the %mh and %mr tags in wps. Do these tags apply to all targets?

15:59:36dongsmy ipod has hold. the UI shows a lock wehn its on. so i guess it works/implemented
15:59:46klrspzyeah hold works on ipod
15:59:51klrspzbookmarking needs a lot of work
16:00:04Genre9mp3I'm making a wps for all targets, that's why I want to know about the hold switches...
16:00:08scorchearchos' do not have a hold switch, however, you can hold a certain button to put it into "hold" mode
16:00:32klrspzGenre9mp3, utilizing the peakmeters?
16:00:42webmindis there already a solution to the low battery crashes for the ipod ?
16:00:49amiconnGenre9mp3: ipods have main unit hold switches. Iirc the remotes can also have hold switches, but ipod remotes aren't supported at all yet
16:01:07webminddongs, ipod nano crashes when the battery is low
16:01:11linuxstbGenre9mp3: Another difference between targets is whether or not they have a clock.
16:01:12webmindas oposed to a shutdown
16:01:30amiconnArchoses don't have hold switches, but rockbox has soft hold in the wps on archos, except Ondio
16:01:38dongswebmind: fun
16:01:42dongsi guess i havent noticed that yet
16:01:49dwihnowebmind: basically, the unit should refuse to play when the battery level is beneath N
16:01:51dongswebmind: you have a nano i guess?
16:01:56Genre9mp3So should I include a hold icon for archos wps?
16:01:57scorchewell, ya...cept ondio =P
16:02:14dongswebmind: does it charge when plugged into a dead usb port? (with only power applied)
16:02:23Genre9mp3and for iPods only for the main unit, right?
16:02:48Genre9mp3klrspz: peakmeters???
16:02:56dongs%pm i think.
16:03:00dongsbut they look damn ugly
16:03:00klrspzGenre9mp3, yeah, those bars that bounce to the beat
16:03:14klrspzi was going to try to see if you can assign images to it.. but didn't see anything in the docs
16:03:23klrspzcuz i have a great idea for them (i think anyway)
16:03:23dongsi dont think you can
16:03:29Genre9mp3klrspz: so, what about them?
16:03:39klrspzGenre9mp3, was just wondering if you're utilizing them in your wps
16:03:41klrspzapparently not
16:03:47Genre9mp3no, I don't
16:04:19Genre9mp3To finish this, iAudio have hold switch in the main unit?

16:10:26linuxstb"Gentlemen, we have light..."
16:10:38B4gdervery cool to read gigabeat progress
16:11:47ShonkyThe fading didn't work (at all), but I think the way we've been hacking using kernel modules isn't good for that. It was as if linux didn't like the fact the insmod took too long.
16:12:36linuxstbHave you tried compiled your own Linux kernel and installing it on the gigabeat?
16:13:03ShonkyNo not yet.
16:13:41ShonkyIf we do that and it chokes, it means opening the thing up currently and doing a bit of a hot swap trick on the HD
16:14:36linuxstbSo there's no kind of emergency USB mode available before the gigabeat reads the firmware from disk?

16:15:57ShonkyIt switches over if it can't find the files, but if the files are there it will try to run/boot them.

18:05:17lostlogicwe don't have rush hour in chicago any more. In the summer, you need only ask yourself "Is the sun up?" to answer the question "Is there a phenomenal amount of traffic?"

18:08:10dwihnotoo bad all laptop builders of today insist on using touch pads instead of that pin between g, h and b
18:08:14dongsholding "press/pause" on nano for 2 seconds = sometimes random lockup

18:20:07hardeepit appears to be working correctly now
18:20:16dongsok ya korean portion of hte font totally failed to load

18:21:25Genre9mp3wait, you want korean at the filenames???
18:21:32lostlogichardeep: hmm, yeah, that would work indeed. Only on an error condition would stop_codec be set not at the end of the playlist, and then it's probably best not to save the position any way.
18:22:55Genre9mp3I thought you were talkin about the tags

21:35:13klrspzonly about 1/8 of the functionality is working and the rest either works but the user interaction part sucks, or isn't clear... but i think that's something they're working on

21:41:51klrspzLear, i don' tknow.. i'm not an insane audiophile with those skills.. but i do know when i mess with something like winamp or xmms, the eq is easy to manipulate and sounds good... you don't get the same UI or feedback from RB
21:42:17preglowklrspz: it should be pretty much exactly the same
21:42:31preglowklrspz: you have precut and gain for each band in winamp as well, just as we have
21:42:37preglowklrspz: only difference is that ours is more flexible
21:43:51Febsklrspz, have you read the documentation in the manual about how the EQ works?
21:44:00klrspzit just doesn't feel intuitive
21:44:09klrspzmmm i have to admit no ihaven't
21:44:11nobeliumamiconn, alive?
21:44:15thegeekbecause it's much easier to manipulate sliders with a mouse
21:44:19preglowthe sliders aren't upright, no, i admit to that, but it really is the same thing
21:44:27preglowit should sound bad just like winamp's will sound bad if you gain too much with no precut

21:46:16FebsPrecut is an overall gain boost/reduction that you can use to compensate for the boost/reduction in gain that you are applying through the 5 eq bands.
21:46:19preglowklrspz: it doesn't matter, if it were, then it would obviously apply the same for all bands

23:17:09amiconnobo: No, only the one from -v
23:17:35oboah, thanks
23:19:41goffai don't understand why my battery only charges to 50% some nights
23:19:48goffabut other nights it'll go to 100
23:20:52preglowamiconn: any idea why so poor a result this time?

23:21:20amiconnNot at all...
23:24:05nobeliumI'm a bit confused now..wasn't rockbox charging for h300 implemented a while ago?
23:24:16nobeliummine still goes to original iriver firmware
23:24:54Mikachudon't you need to hold down a key?
23:25:38nobeliumnot sure..going to read the manual
23:26:18PaulJamif you insert the charger when rockbox is running it charges through rockbox
23:26:52amiconnGenre9mp3: Fixed.
23:26:54Mikachulook out for 01:02:03 04/05/06 later tonight
23:27:24markunMikachu: holding a key is for USB charging
23:27:46Genre9mp3amiconn: Wow! As simple as that? Cool!!!
23:27:50Mikachumarkun: is he not trying to do that?
23:28:13markunIs he?
23:28:26nobeliumAC charging
23:28:46amiconnGenre9mp3: Yes, the framebuffer format used to be lsb first, now it's msb first in order to not mirror retailos by the rockbox bootloader. Screendump was just not adjusted yet
23:29:43linuxstbSo is anyone else interested in a port to that mp3/mp4 player with a 2.5" disk?
23:29:56preglowbut for the time...
23:30:14linuxstbI know... That's my only doubt.
23:30:31linuxstbBut I would like a swcodec player with a 2.5" disk...
23:30:52preglowsounds like fun, but it'll just diverge me further from the points in rockbox i'd like to spend more time on
23:30:56preglowwhich is codecs and dsp
23:31:06preglowand i'm really struggling with time nowadays anyway
23:31:12***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
23:31:26*amiconn doesn't really like these players, judging from the specs...
23:31:36preglowi don't care too much about that, i'm still fine with my h120
23:31:54linuxstbamiconn: What's the problem?
23:32:13preglowno hardware codec
23:32:18Genre9mp3amiconn: You are the man. I don't have a clue about these stuff...Glad that is fixed.
23:34:39amiconnlinuxstb: My biggest concerns: (1) Large colour lcd (2) Too small battery for 2.5" HD

23:43:09amiconnMy 3rd concern: Has anyone ever seen these players in europe and/or the us?
23:43:27linuxstbI've been wondering the same. Maybe they are available under a different name...
23:44:02preglowi got the impression they weren't widely available yet
23:44:08linuxstbAlthough he seemed to imply in his last forum post that they have various distributors around the world.
23:46:15preglowhe most certainly did

23:49:13Davide-NYCplease tell me in quick 'n' dirty fashion how to test (what in particular you want me to do) the optical recording and I will try to run some tests tonight
23:49:22goffac'mon clock!
23:49:29goffa1 hour and 10 mins
23:49:40goffaand i'm free
23:49:57preglowDavide-NYC: i don't really require any more tests

23:50:24preglowi need to find out why the bloody coldfire doesn't do what i want it do
23:50:28preglowbad, i guess
23:50:33preglowit means i don't know what i'm doing wrong
23:50:37Davide-NYCI'm sorry to hear that
23:50:46preglowdon't worry, i'll fix it sooner or later
23:51:05Davide-NYCif there is something I can do let me know, I am very interested in this feature
23:51:12preglowcan do
23:51:13Davide-NYC(next to no coding ability)
23:51:30preglowi'll post a patch once i've had some progress
23:51:32preglowso you'll know
23:51:42Davide-NYCtook CS in college, but that was pascal and was 10 years ago
23:51:58preglowhave you tried the current patch any, though?
23:52:19 Join cismo [0] (
23:52:26Davide-NYCI belive Pilot000 put it in his build, but I have not yet tried it
23:52:40Davide-NYCI stil have to learn how to work with patches'
23:53:01Davide-NYCI compiled once but it was a "follow the instructions" dry run and absorbed next to nothing doing
23:53:23Davide-NYCeventually (when I get the time) I will be more on board
23:53:41preglowseems different people meet different bugs in it
23:53:46preglowwhich makes it all the easier to work with
23:54:15Davide-NYCWhen I do test it I should use the current build and your patch and nothing else, cvorrent?
23:55:17preglowthe patch is a bit outdated though
23:55:25Davide-NYCI ask because right now I'm using the recording enhancement patch and the auto gain patch
23:55:27preglowbetter to just wait
23:55:39preglowwell, you can use as many patches as you want, really, as long as they don't clash
23:55:43Davide-NYCbasically Mmmm's build or Pilot000 build
23:56:06Davide-NYCWell I figure these have a pretty good possibility of clashing, or am I wrong?
23:56:08preglowi'll post a build when i post a new patch as well
23:56:12preglowthey do, yea
23:56:23preglowbut i've gotta go
23:56:26Davide-NYCsweet. Thanks a bunch for your efforts
23:56:32preglowyou're welcome
