#rockbox log for 2006-05-05

00:00:10lostlogicXavierGr: it's only on manual skip, right?
00:00:26Bagder473 open feature requests
00:00:37Mikachudo mine, do mine!
00:00:38captbunzook. here's a simple question.
00:00:58captbunzosay I want to totally "reset" the rockbox OS.
00:01:14peturwhat player?
00:01:26captbunzoCan this be accomplished by deleting .rockbox and rockbox.ipod?
00:01:29peturboot it with hold on
00:01:31Bagderhumulus: the x5 port is very new so its still lacking a few basic things that work on other targets Rockbox runs on
00:01:37XavierGrlostlogic: I think yes, let me check again the manual change from filebrowser.
00:01:47captbunzoyeah - that doesn't seem to REALLY reset everything.
00:01:53humulusBagder: but mp3/ogg works properly?
00:01:59XavierGrlostlogic: and I am sure that there is nothing wrong on normal track change (when a track ends)
00:01:59Bagderhumulus: yes
00:02:01Mikachucaptbunzo: no, that won't clear your settings
00:02:02humulusBagder: and video?
00:02:12lostlogicXavierGr: that's all I meant −− any other change is 'manual'
00:02:15Mikachucaptbunzo: boot with the hold switch on
00:02:19*lostlogic out for now.
00:02:20peturcaptbunzo: what do you understand with reset?
00:02:46captbunzoRockbox is very consistently hanging on boot.
00:03:02XavierGrlostlogic I remember you saying that filetree change is different than right/left change.
00:03:12captbunzoI can usually get it to reboot through a combination of reboots and reset reboots.
00:03:25captbunzoI figured reinstalling the OS isn't a bad idea.
00:03:38humulusok i'll check it out :)
00:03:41captbunzojust wanted to make sure that I deleted everything.
00:03:42peturyou can wipe the folder and ithe rockbox.ipod file
00:03:59Mikachucaptbunzo: you saw what i wrote?
00:04:16peturin case you think a file got corrupted
00:04:21captbunzounfortunately, I was already doing that.
00:04:37captbunzopetur: a file - are we talking a ROCKBOX file? or something else on the hard drive?
00:04:42captbunzolike an audio file.
00:05:10peturrockbox.ipod or whatever there's in the .rockbox folder

01:43:52midkaysjgrox2x, no, since you haven't told us what you need help with.
01:45:05sjgrox2xI have spent the past few days to try and get a patch to install on t my ipod. I have read all of teh tutorials well at least I think all of them on how to do and waht to do. I ahve tried both VMware and cygwin and cant get a patch to work.
01:45:26midkaywhat's the problem?
01:46:06sjgrox2xI am pretty much lost on how to get the patch converted (at least I think what i read means to convert it) and then put it on to my ipod.
01:47:16sjgrox2xI know i read countless posts from other people on teh forums that this is a tough task and you need to have somewhat of a background in programming but my programming knowledge in limited
01:47:25midkayconverted? you need to compile it..
01:47:33sjgrox2xYes, that is what I ment, compile.
01:48:22midkaywell, if you can give us a specific error you get, or be more specific about the problem..
01:48:48sjgrox2xWell i seemed to have gotten closer with Cygwin
01:49:04midkayvmware's the easiest, i think..
01:49:09sjgrox2xI am not really sure how to compile the patch
01:49:12sjgrox2xBut this is what I did
01:49:15midkayeither way, an error message would be nice..
01:50:05sjgrox2xI guess i was skipping the compiling patch and just trying to go straight to adding the patch by typing: patch −−binary -p0 < patchfilename
01:50:22midkayand then what happened?
01:50:24sjgrox2xI skipped the compiling because I could never get tot he folder that I downloaded the patch to
01:50:32sjgrox2xWhen i tried to add it
01:50:33sjgrox2xIt says this
01:51:47sjgrox2xBefore it was asking me for the File to be patched
01:52:02sjgrox2xbut now it says "Bash: patch: command not found"

01:53:55midkay(which it looks like you are, never mind)
01:54:17sjgrox2xHrmm, not sure how it got uninstalled, Should I run the setup again?
01:54:37midkayif you like. if you still have VMware installed, it's probably a lot easier.. everything's already set up.
01:54:53sjgrox2xI have that
01:55:15sjgrox2xI have it running

01:57:06midkaydid you try patching?

01:57:44midkayyou're specifying the right patch file name, right? vmware doesn't use the cygwin folder..
01:58:08Zoide777has anyone here tried the rockboy patch on a grayscale ipod?
01:58:19sjgrox2xBy specifying where the patch is, I am typing C:/rockbox/thepatch.patch
01:59:04Mikachuthat's most likely wrong
01:59:13midkaysjgrox2x, sorry, vmware might be a bit confusing. it emulates linux, and doesn't use your C: or D: drives.
01:59:32sjgrox2xYea, I dont really know how to use linux :S
01:59:56Mikachubasically, just leave out the drive letter
01:59:58Mikachuthere is only one /
02:00:05sjgrox2xOk, let me try that.
02:00:16Mikachuand of course, give the correct path to the patch file
02:00:19midkayMikachu, but his patch is on C:\ and vmware does *not* touch any of your standard drives...
02:00:31Mikachuright, you have to put the patch file on the filesystem first
02:00:33midkayyou can't even access anything on C: if you try, without copying it over..
02:00:36Mikachuor you will have limited access
02:01:06sjgrox2xOK, sorry for being new to this... How do I upload the file to the linux system?
02:01:30midkayyou need to go to 'my network places' and look for 'user' or 'homes' on debian server..
02:01:48midkaytry to enter either, and use "user" and "rockbox" for the username/password
02:02:41sjgrox2x"My Network Places" on my computer?
02:03:21sjgrox2xWhat would be the server I am trying to connect to.. Like the ip or link to it?
02:03:35Mikachui think \\debian

04:03:38ericmoritz\0hey I just put rockbox on my wifes ipod nano, the volume control acts odd, I spans the values -74 to 6, why is that?
04:04:13biffherosjgrox2x: you need to have a space after the 'vfat', so it looks like this: mount -t vfat /dev/sda2 /mnt Otherwise you almost have it.

04:59:12lostlogicwould it make sense that the noise would be up-to 1/5s of audio from a few seconds after the currently playing position of the old track?
05:00:27XavierGrI don't really understand what you just said :( But I will make sure to test it.

05:00:59lostlogicdoes it sound like up-to 1/5 second of missequenced audio from the old track

06:29:39Paul_The_Nerdericmoritz\0: Also, are you in the filetree, or TagCache?
06:29:57ericmoritz\0ipod nano, I installed the latest build as of like 10pm est
06:30:01ericmoritz\0Tag Cache
06:30:30Paul_The_NerdThen why did you say 'Directory' when you meant 'Album' or 'Level'
06:30:44Paul_The_NerdDirectory is a word that applies to filetrees. TagCache doesn't support the feature you were told to use yet.
06:31:03ericmoritz\0sorry, my albums are in directories
06:31:15Paul_The_NerdYes, but you didn't enter the directory, because you weren't in the filetree
06:31:20Paul_The_NerdYou entered the Album in the TagCache browser
06:31:35ericmoritz\0Paul_The_Nerd, you're right, I used the wrong word
06:32:16hardeepthat reminds me
06:32:32hardeepSlasheri: any reason we can't use the playlist functions from Tag Cache?
06:32:42Paul_The_NerdJust sayin', it's hard to help without details. But yeah, if you browse in filetree, you'll be able to choose "Playlist" then "Insert" which will let you insert individual files, or folders.
06:32:54hardeepall we need is the pathname of the selected track
06:33:24Paul_The_Nerdhardeep: I *think* they've either not been implemented, or were disabled at some point. (There are some people who said they were there when TagCache was first added, then removed, though I haven't verified this, so it's just random forum dwellers)
06:34:19scorchePaul_The_Nerd: well, you are slightly less harsh than you usually are when doing troubleshooting =D
06:34:20ericmoritz\0Paul_The_Nerd, yep, using the file browser mode works fine
06:34:47Paul_The_Nerdericmoritz\0: Hopefully we'll have the full functions in TagCache soonish, but you can never tell when.

06:40:46scorchePaul_The_Nerd: also, how come with doing the aforementioned process, you cannot say, do that to a folder that has folders inside of that, and add all the music that is inside those folders, which are inside of the folder that i hit insert on?
06:40:53scorche...if that made any sense at all
06:41:12ericmoritz\0I sometimes seem to get stuck in one directory in file browser mode. the back button doesn't seem to do anything. Anyone get that?
06:42:26Paul_The_Nerdscorche: If you enable "Recursively insert subdirectories" it will grab all the subfolders. For example, I can do all of my ACDC music by "Insert" on ACDC, and it gets all 4 album subfolders
06:42:42Paul_The_Nerdericmoritz\0: Haven't heard that one before.
06:43:05scorchePaul_The_Nerd: hot...thanks...for some odd reason, i totally skipped over that option
06:43:35Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: Further info, got the guy to restore his original Bootpartition.bin and it shows the charging icon in the upper left corner, and it does. So, it happens independently of our bootloader. Hardware flaw maybe? Some defective 5Gs in the wild?

08:45:05Paul_The_Nerdwebguest13: It's late is an excuse for what again? Also, if it didn't work, you're doing it wrong. Turn off the unit by holding Play/Pause. Turn it on, and continue holding Menu until it says "Loading Original Firmware"
08:45:45Paul_The_Nerddongs: Interesting. And it freezes immediately, as opposed to once the buffering tries to get to them?
08:46:31dongsPaul_The_Nerd: maybe the 2nd. i seem to recall the time counter isnt 0:00 when its locked
08:46:33amiconnSlasheri: The tagcache browser seems to not set some type flag correctly. The icons are correct (folder vs. audio file), but voice is inconsistent.
08:46:35dongsso maybe youre right.

08:50:54Paul_The_Nerddongs: If I remember to check it later I will. I'm actually watching Season 1 of House with a friend, and am just making sure not too many questions go unanswered or helped. If you get the chance to test later, drop by the forums and leave the results if you could.

08:52:29dongsi know its not really a common condition
08:52:34dongsi mean how many mp3s you have that are 0 byte
08:52:36dongsbut still better fix it
08:52:42Zoide777in addition to the problem with rockboy, I'm having a problem booting rockbox itself
08:52:53Zoide777I have to hard reset a couple of times, or else it hangs in the Rockbox logo screen
08:53:47amiconndongs: That code won't help us at all. (1) It's C# (2) It uses a windows api function for the actual work
08:53:48theli_uaZoide777, hm ... maybe you just have problem's with rockbox itself? cause patch changes nothing but rockboy's files
08:54:10dongsamiconn: uh, no.
08:54:12dongsit has the algorithm
08:54:15dongswho cares what its implemented in

08:54:50Zoide777theli_ua: yeah, actually i tried rockbox without the patch and it still gives the booting problem
08:55:01Zoide777theli_ua: it didn't use to with an older build, though...
08:55:15Paul_The_Nerddongs: I would strongly suggest you listen to Amiconn when he says "That won't work." He tends to know what he's talking about far more often than I do.
08:55:16amiconnI try to stay away from objects, especially sharp ones
08:55:44dongsthere is nothing object oriented in that java code.
08:55:48scorchei would rather go C# than java...
08:55:51dongsthe algorithm is right there and can be adapted easily.
08:56:05*Paul_The_Nerd wonders why dongs isn't busy adapting it then
08:56:27scorchePaul_The_Nerd: <3
08:56:29dongsduno, cause im not at my place
08:57:03Paul_The_NerdWell, you've got 9 days to post a patch and get it bulletproofed.
08:57:16Paul_The_NerdIt'd probably make it into 3.0, it seems more a bugfix than a feature.
08:57:18hardeepstrange, the tagcache re-committed when I rolo'd
08:57:29theli_uaZoide777, this is strange .. can't see any changes in cvs which should affect 4G iPods ... just the screendump fix
08:57:54scorchei would call it a fix
08:58:23scorchebefore i have formatted things, and just got the torrent, if they had it in track numbers like that, it got annoying
08:58:36amiconndongs: Okay, didn't see that it has the algorithm. It's non-obvious, and you need to register for download. yuck!
08:58:52scorchewow....i need to go away before my typing/english gets worse...
08:58:54Paul_The_NerdI always formatted my track numbers as two-digit anyway.
08:58:55dongshehe, well that java version is better
08:59:13amiconnSo I cannot judge about the code suitability, but it tends to be that oo code doesn't help us much

09:16:09Zoide777well, i tried the may 3 daily build and it worked
09:16:24Zoide777but the may 4 daily didn't
09:16:30Paul_The_NerdYes. The may 3rd daily is made in the wee hours early May 3rd morning.
09:16:38Zoide777ah i see
09:16:40hardeepamiconn: did this work with old tag database?
09:17:17amiconnSet voice to numbers or .talk clip to see what I mean
09:17:39amiconn(.talk clip falls back to numbers when there is no clip, which is always the case in tagcache)
09:17:41Paul_The_NerdZoide777: So, the May 3rd changes need to be looked at. Which is good ,because the only May 4th change was to viewer.c, not a heavily used file in the boot process.;-)
09:17:54hardeepyeah, i see the problem. just surprised it ever worked
09:17:55Zoide777is there a way to download old cvs builds?

11:07:32Paul_The_NerdIf it's not listed in the CustomWPS page, then a patch is required. It's pretty simple for someone to check for themselves. :)
11:08:00zigfordOn the note of tags. Why arne't my vorbis tags read?
11:08:28Paul_The_Nerdzigford: Under what circumstances aren't the Vorbis Comments read?
11:09:11zigfordwps says "no id3"
11:09:19Paul_The_NerdThat doesn't mean the Vorbis Comments aren't read
11:09:26Paul_The_NerdDoes it show "Artist" where artist info belongs?
11:09:40Paul_The_NerdOkay, it's a binary state.
11:09:45Paul_The_NerdThe answer is "Yes" or "No"
11:09:57zigfordI know. I see your point and you are right.
11:10:03zigfordit must be reading them
11:10:16Paul_The_Nerd"No id3" means the file doesn't have ID3 tags. It's actually quite literal
11:10:46Paul_The_NerdAny other metadata results in "No ID3." If I recall it's there to tell you which version of ID3 tags your file has, but I could be wrong about that last bit.
11:10:52zigfordI realize. Is this normal for it to attempt to find an id3 in a vorbis file
11:11:19Paul_The_NerdIt doesn't.
11:11:34zigfordOkay, so its part of the wps
11:11:42Paul_The_NerdThat would be the notion.
11:12:18LinusNthat's part of the legacy from the old days, when rockbox only did mp3
11:13:03zigfordOk. I am using a wps that doesn't do it now. I have seen a wps with song ratings. Is that part of a wps too?
11:14:12Paul_The_NerdWe don't have support in Rockbox for ratings at the moment. They were part of the old RuntimeDB, and not integrated with TagCache yet.
11:15:20dongsall the trouble to go through to get the updater.exe

11:15:58dongsno, i wanted to avoid having to install that stuff.
11:16:18dongsso unpacking msi, junk inside, but the 50meg .exe needs ipodservice running.
11:16:31linuxstbThe Windows installation instructions in how wiki have a section describing how to get a copy of the original bootpartition.bin from the Apple updater.
11:16:52dongslets see
11:16:53*linuxstb curses his brain...
11:16:53Paul_The_NerdYou don't have to run it, do you?
11:17:13linuxstbNo - I think ipodwizard can extract the firmware from it.
11:17:53linuxstbIt's even easier on a Mac - the boot partition images are just stored in the resources folder for the installer application on disk.
11:18:50dongsah. they're as resources in the .exe version as well
11:18:54dongshow do i know which one is nano's?
11:19:19linuxstbCheck the Mac OS X installation page - it has a table which maps Firmware versions to ipods.
11:19:35linuxstb(assuming you can see those numbers in Windows)
11:20:25dongslooks liek that.
11:20:33dongsoh, 14 is also rockbox for nano
11:21:31dongsonly like 6 megs though
11:21:47linuxstbNo - that's the whole thing.
11:22:07linuxstbYou should just be able to use ipodpatcher.exe to write that to your boot partition.

12:47:12linuxstbThat's the easy way out. (and it's not exactly simple either)
12:47:25*dongs sells external battery kits to go with that feature
12:47:28linuxstbIMO, one CPU should be able to handle all that when it optimise.
12:47:59LinusNlinuxstb: you mean we shouldn't use the second cpu at all?
12:48:01dongsi wonder how much performance can be gained by ads/rvct compiling of at least say mp3 codec
12:48:08dongscan this be measured somehow?
12:48:13dprowhy not use it for the gba emulator ;)
12:49:00Paul_The_NerdClearly the second CPU should be used so that we can play Doom while listening to our own soundtracks.
12:49:17linuxstbdongs: IMO, it's a waste of time trying to compile Rockbox with commercial compilers. Rockbox should be built with open source tools, so we should concentrate on optimising that situation.
12:49:56B4gderI agree

12:57:12dproBTW the official arm ltd. compiler sucks (and is quite costly)
12:57:14linuxstbLinusN: Going back to your second CPU question, I'm not saying we shouldn't use it, just that I think getting everything Rockbox currently does (regarding audio playback) working together on one CPU is a feasible optimisation target.

14:52:20bot47Hi there
14:53:56bot47The recently implemented method to enable the Dock Connector's power of iPods seems to brake the iPod Radio Remote!
14:55:50 Quit _FireFly_ ("Leaving")
14:56:44bot47Just in the case anyone cares...
14:57:13peturipod accessories are not supported yet
14:58:43bot47I just want to warn anyone not to use their remotes with build including firmware/drivers/pcf50605.c version 1.8!
14:59:06Mikachubot47: you mean physically break?
14:59:15B4gderso it actually _breaks_ for good?
14:59:41bot47Yes, I'm not quite sure, but it really looks like that. I'm currently prooving it
14:59:58bot47Yes, either the remote or the ipod
15:00:03linuxstbDoes that plug into the dock or the remote connector by the headphone socket?
15:00:22linuxstb^dock connector
15:02:42bot47It still works sporadically, but sometimes the radio, the keys, or even nothing won't work at all. And also, the ipod displays sometime a message like "This Accesoire cannot be used with this iPod."
15:03:19peturyou mean when using it in apple fw?
15:03:26bot47Of course
15:06:22bot47I'm triple checked that the remote's behaviour is wrong. I'm now trying to figure about what exactly caused the problem, but it shortly began after the CVS commit I posted. I will now test if it was really broken by Rockbox.
15:08:40linuxstbOne thing I would say is that that code is found in IPL, which in turn found it by reverse-engineering the diagnostics mode in a 4g ipod. So it's possible we shouldn't do it on the 5g and Nano.
15:09:38linuxstbBut it does seem to make some accessories work, so it would be a shame to revert it.

15:21:39linuxstbbot47: The only conclusive test I can think of would be to return your Radio Remote and get a replacement, and then see if you can break it again.
15:21:49linuxstb(just using that patch)
15:22:00bot47lol ;)
15:22:10bot47not exactly what i want

15:41:39linuxstbIt's possible, but I don't own one, so can't say for sure.

15:42:46 Join RedBreva [0] (
15:42:54linuxstbIt's not really a bug as such, more the fact that you're asking Rockbox to do too much at the same time, and it can't currently keep up. At least, that's the ipod reason.
15:43:19linuxstbBut wait and see if an H300 developer answers your question....

23:54:52amiconnThe description for -mlong-calls says that gcc uses some heuristic to decide which functions can be called by a short call even with -mlong-calls enabled
23:55:33amiconnCalls to functions within a different sections use long calls, and calls to static functions use short calls
23:56:07amiconnThe interesting thing is what happens with a static ICODE function: gcc chooses the wrong option and wants to make a short call...
23:57:15amiconnThe hacky solution is to make all icode functions non-static. The only functions of this type are in ata.c (6 functions in total)
23:57:52amiconnThe proper solution would be to fix gcc, arrrgh!
