01:04:28powerrangersfan1can i listen to music that is on my ipod through rockbox or do i need to boot into apple to get music
01:04:44Mikachumusic is the main selling point of rockbox
01:05:20powerrangersfan1oh but do i need to load in into rockbox or can it be loading onto my ipod by itunes?
01:05:41Genre9mp3maybe we should call it doombox!? lol
01:05:57sharpe32 out of ~255 opcodes done...
01:06:01powerrangersfan1i am installing right now! useing the installer
01:06:48powerrangersfan1so nobody did anwser my question how do i load music on to rockbox so i can listen to music?
01:06:50linuxstbpowerrangersfan1: "TagCache" will index files transferred via itunes -
01:07:12linuxstbThe FAQ is also helpful:
01:08:08Falco98powerrangersfan1: the simple answer to your question is you can use music loaded by iTunes, and you can also listen to music you load yourself (which you couldn't listen to with the iPod firmware even)
01:09:00Falco98the caveat is (as linuxstb just said) you must use TagCache to read the tag info from your iTunes files, as their proper filenames are gibberish invented by the iTunes software upon loading
01:09:34powerrangersfan1i will reply about tagcache affter i load my music 20.GB all night
01:09:40Falco98however, you might find, once you're running rockbox, that you don't really feel like using itunes anomore :)
01:12:15powerrangersfan1btw how do you switch from rockbox to apple os

02:11:07Aghasteropen up cygwin
02:11:09pjoI have compiled many using Linux but not with CygWin

02:12:45pjoCygWin is at I:\CygWin
02:12:55Aghasterok, and what are the subdirs?

02:39:48Mikachuvideo if you have an ipv
02:39:50Aghasteri got a 4th gen ipod, with color display
02:39:57webguest48then again you might not have WMA anyway if it's an ipod
02:39:57pjoAAc support is not perfect, integlation of iTunes playlist is through TagCache
02:40:20 Nick webguest48 is now known as Falco98 (
02:40:25Aghasterrockbox is directory based, so it doesnt work with itunes DB i guess?
02:40:46Aghasteri don't plan on using AAC or wma anyway
02:40:50Aghasterdoes it support flac?
02:40:50pjoRB works with iTunes directory structure with TagCache
02:40:56Falco98basically it lets you use the iPod more like a *real* mass-storage-device, but you may be forced (out of sheer annoyance) to ditch iTunes
02:41:10Falco98and yes, it supports FLAC
02:41:15Aghasteri want to ditch itunes anywya

02:41:17Aghasteri'm on linux
02:41:19Falco98good :)
02:41:31Aghaster+ i think Apple is removing too much digital rights with itunes
02:41:43AghasterI'm currently freeing the music i legally bought from itunes.
02:42:01Falco98i don't believe in paying $1/song for lossy stuff
02:42:08Falco98i'll download illegally, or buy the CD
02:42:10german_snailanapod > itunes :]
02:42:12Aghasterthat's stupid music illegally downloaded on the internet is better than the ones taken from itunes
02:42:12Falco98(often times, one and then the other)
02:42:14pjoyou would experience many odd things still with RB
02:42:27Aghasterwell, at least itunes songs are lossless
02:42:35Falco98oh? which ones
02:42:40Aghasterwell, i think it is?
02:42:47Falco98i figured iTunes was mp3 or lossy AAC
02:42:56Aghasteri got mine in m4p
02:42:58Falco98though i could be wrong..
02:43:06pjoAAc is not very well supported in RB because developers do not use AAC at all
02:43:09Falco98how big are the song files on average?
02:43:28Falco98if they're 50 - 60% as big as WAVs would be, they're lossless..
02:43:31Aghasterits 128kbps!
02:43:37Falco98if it's more like 10 - 15%, it's lossy
02:43:40Aghasterwhat a crap have i paid for
02:43:53Falco98i'm thinking of signing up on
02:43:55pjoif you have many AAc files, it is dangerous to use RB only
02:43:58Aghasterbut the only songs i bought were songs i couldnt find anywhere else

02:44:19Falco98pjo: switching back to the iPod software is all too easy, though..
02:44:29powerrangersfan1i am confused what folde are they talkingabout unzip to the top-level (root) folder on your iPod.
02:44:35pjoplus if you have DRMed AAc, you need to DRm them to be playable with RB
02:44:35Aghasterspecially the "The DRM Plan" article in the latest magazine
02:44:52Falco98powerrangersfan1: are you viewing your ipod as a removable hard drive?
02:44:56pjoi mean unDRM
02:44:59powerrangersfan1yes on a mac
02:45:03Falco98Aghaster: you have a link?
02:45:14Aghasterno, its not available online

02:45:25Aghasterwhich i don't encourage
02:45:27Falco98powerrangersfan1: basically if your iPod is X: you unzip all that stuff right to X:
02:45:45powerrangersfan1huh? i am confused
02:45:54Novusonce rockbox is installed how what dir is ur music in?
02:45:56Falco98in other words, straight to the drive, not to any folder on it
02:46:22Aghasteris rockbox written in C++?
02:46:27powerrangersfan1oh so just drag folder to my ipod not in no other folder
02:46:32Falco98power: correct
02:46:52powerrangersfan1ok it copying all the files
02:47:10AghasterFalco: what is funny about Apple's DRM is that you actually can burn the songs to a CD then re-encode them to another format...
02:47:28Falco98Aghaster: yeah, i guess they don't count on peole thinking of that...
02:47:29Novushow do u install wps on ipod nano?
02:47:39Falco98then again, cross-coding stuff like that is always bad for lossy reasons
02:48:04pjodo you know how to undrm Apple songs ?
02:48:11powerrangersfan1no it did not work
02:48:25AghasterFalco: It's only a proof that DRM is just a plan to make more money on honest users. They know there will be people who will re-encode the songs and distribute them over p2p
02:48:25Falco98the ultimate downfall of DRM, of course, is the plain fact that anyone could re-record stuff via a line-in and make nearly-lossless copies that way, an reencode
02:48:35powerrangersfan1i did what you said and when it got to the blue screen it said error then said going to orignal firewire
02:48:46powerrangersfan1i spent along time doing all of the steps
02:48:47Aghastertheir "anti-piracy" measures are simply futile, and only remove rights on honest users
02:49:07Falco98power: did it say anything more specific?
02:49:07Aghasteryeah, of course
02:49:37powerrangersfan1all i did is copyed they rockbox unzipped folder to my ipod
02:49:44Novusi downloaded a wps file and extracted it to my ipod drive
02:49:53Novusnow when i click on it in rockbox it doesnt load
02:49:58AghasterThe point is... how can you encourage people to buy music legally over the internet if the songs downloaded illegally do not have the stupid restrictions legal songs have?
02:50:06Falco98ok well plug the ipod back into USB and open up the disk.. confirm that you have a file called "rockbox.ipod" there
02:50:30powerrangersfan1it says rockbox error -1
02:50:44powerrangersfan1ok i will but that file is inside the folder
02:50:44Falco98Aghaster: yeah.. and also that people can buy reasonably-priced CDs (sometimes) with lossless, permanent copies, artwork, etc
02:50:59Aghasteryeah, real CDs are still the best
02:51:06Aghasteryou got real material, and no DRM
02:51:08Falco98power: if you have unzipped it correctly, that file should already be there
02:51:12Novusnobody here has rockbox installed?
02:51:22Falco98Novus: i do.. on my h140.. why?
02:51:45Novusim having trouble putting a wps on there
02:51:52powerrangersfan1ok i unzipped the download and the zip came with a folder so i drag folder onto my ipod
02:51:54Novuswell i have it on there but when i click it on it doesnt work
02:52:10Falco98novus: so you can find it when you do "browse .wps files"?
02:52:16powerrangersfan1do i drag folder or just the file
02:52:42powerrangersfan1yes to what?
02:52:42Falco98power: in your ipod, you should have both a file "iriver.ipod", and a folder ".rockbox"
02:53:05Novusit says brushed_metal
02:53:10Novuswhat should i click
02:53:34Falco98well, it *should* work if you click it, i suppose.. what is it doing after you do so?
02:53:34powerrangersfan1i have a rockbox.ipod no .rockbox folder i think that might be a hidden folder
02:54:00Falco98power: it might be hidden.. maybe you should try unzipping it out of the .zip file again to make sure
02:54:08Novusthe screen goes blank into sleep mode
02:54:12german_snailonce rockbox is installed, do you add/remove files like it's an external hdd?
02:54:13Falco98power: even if you overwrite it, it won't do any harm
02:54:21Falco98german_snail: yup
02:54:47powerrangersfan1it says i need to place the folder to the top level root folder of the ipod
02:55:06Falco98in the same level as the rockbox.ipod file is

02:55:57Novusalso falco98, what dir is the current music that you had on ipod at ipod
02:56:10Novus*before installing rockbox
02:56:18german_snailpowerrangersfan1, when you go to "My Computer", what drive letter is your ipod?
02:56:22Falco98novus: you mean what folder does iTunes keep music in?
02:56:29Falco98(german: i believe he's on a mac)
02:56:49powerrangersfan1the zip file i downloaded from daily builds when i used unzip or whatever it zipped whatever (a folder saying rockbox) and inside the folder it has rockbox.ipod that is all
02:57:17powerrangersfan1so i drag the rockbox-ipodvideo-20060520 Folder "folder to my ipod"
02:57:19german_snailmac user ditching mac firmware
02:57:19powerrangersfan1and nothing
02:57:29Novusi just used itunes to put music on the ipod
02:57:37Novusi never had it one folder
02:58:19Falco98power: the rockbox-ipodvideo-... file is the .zip
02:58:51linuxstbFalco98: I'm guessing the zip file has been uncompressed into a folder with the same name as the .zip
02:58:52powerrangersfan1yes and i drag that folder to my ipod from desktop
02:58:58Falco98it contains a file called "rockbox.ipod" and a folder called ".rockbox"
02:59:07Falco98both of those should be unzipped straight to your ipod disk
02:59:15Falco98linux: prolly
02:59:36powerrangersfan1no it only has rockbox.ipod unless it hidden
02:59:55linuxstbIt's so much easier at the command-line: "unzip -d /mnt/ipod" ....
02:59:58Falco98you said you're on a mac,r ight?
03:00:06powerrangersfan1yes i found that .rockbox is hidden
03:00:15powerrangersfan1yes i am on a mac
03:00:19Novuswtf what dir is rockbox on?
03:00:33Novuswhat dir is ur music on
03:00:52powerrangersfan1so what do i do...........
03:00:55Falco98Novus: i'm not sure where iTunes sticks music, if that's what you're talking about
03:01:07Falco98power: have you been able to view the hidden file yet?
03:01:10Novusbackdrop, calender,contact, fonts, notes, photos, themes, wps, calenders
03:01:18Novusthat what i get when i start my ipod now
03:01:38german_snailargh, i need help, i extracted rockbox.ipod and .rockbox to my ipod's root dir, unplugged usb, rebooted ipod, but it's not running rockbox :/
03:01:40Falco98power: you copy the .rockbox folder to your ipod
03:02:04Mikachuoverflow in rtfm buffer
03:02:14Falco98german: and you followed all the other installation steps for iPod before copying the files over?
03:02:25Falco98Mikachu: ROFL
03:02:39linuxstbNovus: You shouldn't see the "backdrop, fonts, themes, wps" folders in the same place as calendar and notes - they should have stayed inside the .rockbox folder.
03:03:12linuxstbNovus: But now you can copy music anywhere on your ipod's hard disk. For example, I just have a folder called "Music", and I put everything in there.
03:03:17powerrangersfan1thanks to all it worked
03:03:23powerrangersfan1stupid hidden folders
03:03:59Falco98power: i'm glad it worked, i was running out of ideas :-)
03:04:07Novusso the music i had prior did or didnt get deleted?
03:04:23powerrangersfan1ok i have no songs on my ipod but when i click the folder rockbox nothing comes up
03:04:26Falco98Novus: there is no reason it would have, unless you did something else to delete it
03:04:46Falco98power: don't click the rockbox folder, there's no music in there
03:04:49Novusbut where is on the ipod screen?
03:05:12powerrangersfan1so then were do i find my music?
03:05:16linuxstbNovus: The screen you are looking at in Rockbox is simply the file browser. Press MENU to go to the menu...
03:05:34german_snailFalco98, which other steps?
03:05:38*Falco98 wishes someone experienced with RB on ipods was in here :-P
03:05:54linuxstbAll the experience is here:
03:06:03Falco98german: on the ipod installation page, there are a few steps listed which you have to do before your iPod "knows" how to boot Rockbox
03:06:09Falco98(see link above)
03:06:30german_snailoh, i just followed the manual
03:06:38linuxstbgerman_snail: Start reading here:
03:06:47Falco98linux: is the iTunes music accessible via the rockbox filetree at all?
03:07:06powerrangersfan1ok so i see 4 folder "contacts"...and at bottom says rockbox were do i find my music and such
03:07:20powerrangersfan1also how about some better background
03:07:35linuxstbFalco98: You need to change the "Show files" option to "All" and then you can see the obfuscated filenames that itunes creates. TagCache is more practical.
03:07:43Novusso linux i downloaded a wps on and extracted it to my ipod drive
03:08:00Novusi click on the wps screen it goes blank and goes to sleep mode
03:08:07Falco98linux: i'm only wondering if the actual folders are even visible :-P
03:08:10 Quit powerrangersfan1 ("Chatzilla 0.9.73 [Firefox]")
03:08:27Falco98Novus: you should select themes (nominally) by doing "browse themes"
03:08:34linuxstbFalco98: It's all inside a top-level "iPodControl" folder which is hidden.
03:08:41Falco98ahh makes sense then
03:08:55Novusi did...
03:09:00Falco98power: press the button to get into the menu (linux: reference?) and enable TagCache
03:09:13linuxstbFalco98: Err, "Menu"....
03:09:33Falco98oh there's actually a "menu" button on ipod?
03:09:47Novuswhat do u need for wps to work?

03:17:23pjodoes anyone advis how to apply xxx.diff file to the RB source ?
03:17:43Falco98Novus: you won't notice too much of a theme change 'til you actually get music playing such that u see a WPS
03:17:49pjohow about using diff command ?

03:18:34pjosure this is my favorite page

03:19:23pjoi want to apply scrollmargins.diff
03:19:33Mikachushow it some pictures of old people
03:19:39pjoand I want to know exactly how to do it
03:20:03pjopatching xxxx.patch worked fine
03:20:12german_snaillinuxstb, i extracted rockbox.ipod and .rockbox _before_ doing all those dos commands, what now?
03:20:47Falco98german: i think as long as you do the necessary steps on the install page, it should work
03:20:48linuxstbpjo: The standard way is to type "patch -p0 < scrollmargins.diff" from the "rockbox" directory - i.e. in the directory containing apps, firmware etc.
03:21:10pjothat is what I did
03:21:20linuxstbgerman_snail: So have you now done all the DOS commands?
03:21:35linuxstbAnd what does your ipod do?
03:21:44german_snailoh it's working now
03:21:55pjopatch command asks "file to path"
03:22:24linuxstbOK. Try again with "-p1" instead of "-p0"
03:22:47sharpeokay... 79 instructions implemented so far...
03:22:52Falco98linux: BTW what does "-p1", etc, do? mess with relative path etc?
03:23:04linuxstbOr stop guessing, and open up the patch file in a text editor and look at the filenames at the top of the patch.
03:23:08Falco98JdGordon: get my PM?
03:23:27sharpeonly... 255-79 more to go.
03:23:35Falco98k, just wanted to know what you thought :-P
03:23:52JdGordonill leave it up to you... im done with that patch.. :D
03:23:57Falco98BTW you should post a reply on the thread in General Discussion, O:-)
03:24:10Falco98well i believe it's working pretty close to 100% now
03:24:33Falco98that was the last bug i could discover, anyway
03:24:37linuxstbFalco98: Yes. If the filename in the patch is "rockbox/apps/settings.c", then "-p0" means that patch will look for rockbox/apps/settings.c, "-p1" will mean that patch looks for apps/settings.c and "-p2" will mean that patch looks for settings.c in the current directory.
03:24:59Falco98linuxstb: gotcha.. i hadn't run across that quite yet
03:25:54pjowith p1 it displays error, can't find file to path at input line 8, Perhaps you used the wrong -p or −−strip option
03:26:09german_snailhow do i shut down ipod now? i can't keep my eyes open to read another word
03:26:18Falco98pjo: what folder do you have the diff in, and what files does it refer to?

04:30:04scottderjust the latest and greatest from CVS :)
04:30:17sharpei don't really use patches either...
04:35:15Falco98ah.. then you haven't used my "random & track skip" patch yet?
04:35:43Falco98(i only use patches because these are features i wanted badly to write / instigate myself :-P)
04:36:02Mikachui probably have more modified than original lines in my tree :)
04:36:04*Falco98 listens intently to his h140 playing back albums in apparently-random order, never knowing what's next (!!)
04:36:51Falco98Mikachu: how do you speed up the process of re-doing various patches, etc, when you update to a new build?
04:36:52 Quit damaki_ (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
04:36:52PaulJamFalco98: I think someone mentioned yesterday that you should change the line " {2, S_O(crossfade), 0,...." in settings.c . The first number (2) determines the number of bits needed to store the setting, and for 5 settings you need 3 bits instead of two.
04:37:02MikachuFalco98: ? cvs update
04:37:14Falco98Paul: thanks, i'll look at that...
04:37:58sharpei'm listening to... reggie and the full effect... on my ipod... with rockbox!
04:38:09Falco98PaulJam: how severe of an effect would this have, just out of curiosity?
04:38:35Mikachuthe setting would not be saved
04:38:38Falco98since the patch seems to work with that number unchanged..
04:38:44PaulJamFalco98: if you set it to always the setting is not stored on reboot
04:39:16Falco98ahh, i haven't actually tried "always" yet :-P
04:39:34Falco98i'll update.. i guess i only need to update the .patch file itself, since it's a 1-byte change in this case...

04:40:45Mikachuthat's one way to do it
04:41:01Falco98(and i assume that if i'm coding 2 separate patches in the same path, when i do a diff, it'll catch everything instead of just the desired patch, right?)
04:42:19Falco98which kinda boggles me as to how people do multiple patches at once.. unless they have multiple source folders set up
04:42:29Falco98(which i do, but generally just 2ish)
04:43:46Mikachuwell, you can edit out parts of the patch after you generate it
04:44:49Mikachuit's especially easy if all your changes are in separate files
04:44:56Falco98though if you happen to be working in the same file with multiple patches you're pretty much screwed then :-P

05:04:53midkaysharpe, you blind bastard.. :)
05:05:00Aghasterwhat does your patch do?
05:05:01sharpei can't remember the name...
05:05:07midkayShar Pie?
05:05:14sharpeno, but that is a good one.
05:05:22midkayin fact it is.
05:05:33sharpeit's also not trademarked.
05:05:45Falco98it's pretty simple.. instead of forcing a user to select "crossfade when in shuffle mode" OR "crossfade upon track skip", it allows the user to select "both" without having to set crossfade to "always"
05:05:52Aghasteryeah, i just read
05:06:03sharpemidkay: i think one is "Haste Mimikry"
05:06:10AghasterFalco, is Rockbox translated in Esperanto?
05:06:16midkaysharpe, alright.
05:06:17Falco98heh, no idea :-P
05:06:24sharpenot quite sure about the other though.
05:06:28Falco98you could check to see whether the builds ship with an "esperanto.lang" file
05:06:30Aghasterokay, then you might have an esperanto translation coming lol
05:06:40midkaysharpe, well, the friends list only requires one name on the account to be added..
05:06:47Aghasterdoes rockbox uses unicode?
05:06:55midkayany other characters logged on under that account will show up next to the friendslist name in parenthases.
05:07:04midkaye.g. Haste Mimikry (Shar Pie).
05:07:18sharpei'll smack you with the spelling book! parentheses!
05:07:28midkayokay. wait.
05:07:41midkayfirst, wtf at me using parentheses more than once in a day.
05:07:50midkaysecond, wtf at ????.
05:07:53midkaythird, wtf. i misspelled it again.
05:08:20Falco98Aghaster: you happen to have a link to "The DRM plan" article?
05:08:24Falco98or is it only in print?

One way is to report the actual scroll wheel delta, and let the client code use that "raw" number.

07:55:45midkaypretty weird.
07:56:06zemidkay: my karma needs replacement
07:56:23zemidkay: before i get a used karma in its place
07:56:34zemidkay: any recomendations of something new to get instead?
07:56:43midkayze, how about an iPod 5G? :)
07:56:43zemidkay: something that i'd actually like at least as well as my karma?
07:56:52midkayi haven't used karmas too extensively..
07:56:54zemidkay: i'm serious :p
07:57:09midkaybut the ipods+rockbox have as-good or better sound quality, surely, and definitely more configurable and stuff.
07:57:12EbErTwait, who makes karma
07:57:15midkay5-band parametric eq, just like the karma..
07:57:18midkayEbErT, Rio.
07:57:34goffazs... if color screen isn't a big deal i REALLY like my h140
07:57:38midkayze, crossfeed.. crossfade, but even more extensive, if you like that kind of thing.. we now have TagCache for browsing like the karma..
07:57:46goffai've got a karma, x5l, and an h140
07:57:52zei'd love something with rockbox
07:57:53midkaysome kind of rockboxed player. :)
07:58:02goffayou can get a one for like $200 on ebay
07:58:03midkayze, you might like the H100s, yeah..
07:58:06zebut i'm pretty hooked on the scrollwheel, ogg, flac
07:58:10midkaysimilar priced, but rockbox-capabile..
07:58:11goffathat's where i got mine
07:58:21midkayrockbox = ogg, flac, wavpack, everything..
07:58:22goffamy karma wheel brok :(
07:58:22EbErTany suggestions for type of app to find corruped file on ipod?
07:58:30midkaycorrupted file?
07:58:52zegoffa: sucks
07:59:02midkayze, well, yeah, anyways, the h100 series is probably quite similar to the karma..
07:59:16EbErTit ran my itunes cpu usage way up. took me tons of time to figure that out
07:59:17goffayeah... in a way.. prompted me to get my x5 and h140
07:59:20goffareally happy with those
07:59:29zegoffa: my karma came with a dead line... other than that everything's been fine untill it got broken by mishaps
07:59:30goffai don't miss the wheel so much now
07:59:59zei really appreciate the wheel for jumping quickly in seeks and file lists
08:00:15goffascrolling is better on rockbox imo
08:00:15midkayze, a 30gb ipod could be found for probably $275, and it has the touch wheel.. we'll have accelleration for that soon, surely..
08:00:21goffayou might miss it for the seek
08:01:01midkayze, the ipod's stock firmware is a great example for the touch wheel, trying to pick a song out of a list of like 600 songs for me is .. incredibly quick. :)
08:01:01goffai never seek so that wasn't an issue

08:02:09midkayze, well, i couldn't love my 5G more. :)

08:03:06goffayou can do better price/look/quality wise than the ipod

08:04:00goffamaybe it was the crap files that were on there

08:04:11goffaapple firmware
08:04:16goffacan't comment on rockbox on the ipod
08:04:24midkayi thought the apple firmware sounded pretty good, but rockbox completely destroys it..
08:04:46goffaso that's a consideration too ze
08:05:04zei've no idea, i've just seen lots of places that the karma had better sound quality than ipod, including notes of surprise about such considering how similar internals they have
08:05:09midkayze, yeah, well, again, i have no karma experience as far as quality, and i've barely toyed with the UI..
08:05:24midkayze, well, those are comparing apple's firmware, keep that in mind. :)
08:05:37goffayeah.. i was happy with karma's sound
08:05:37zedid apple just choose crappy decoding engines?

08:07:28goffatheir firmware is really slow
08:07:31EbErTsoundcard on shuffle produces better sound than all the other ipods, if that tells ya anything
08:07:36goffabut you can't knock the sound
08:07:58goffarockbox speeds it considerably
08:09:21midkayze, anyways, with the number of supported rockbox players, i couldn't forgive you for not getting one.. :)
08:09:27EbErTmaybe the forced tag caching could come with error messages or what file it had trouble with later on

08:09:54EbErTif i can get id3 tags to work, i'll be completely satisfied w/ rockbox so far

08:18:38goffai'd spend the extra 50 and get the 140 though.. unless 20 is big enough
08:19:48midkayyeah, whatever he does, he knows that he's going to get a rockbox player or be killed by me. :)

11:17:03midkaycmug, TagCache will let you browse files by id3tag instead of folders..
11:17:24midkayso you can build a database of all the mp3s on your disk, and if the podcasts are tagged correctly and a valid format e.g. mp3, they will show up in the browser.
11:17:33cmugmidkay, hmm, ill check that out
11:17:46cmugbut can it separate podcasts from normal music somehow?
11:18:06midkaynot unless they're tagged differently..
11:18:18midkaye.g. Album = "Podcast" or something..
11:18:33midkayit lets you browse by artist, album, song .. so whatever they're tagged as, they'll show up as.

13:38:35Murmur2kHi all
13:40:42***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
13:41:15Murmur2kJust installed rockbox today - looks great - finally FLAC on my Ipod!
13:42:51german_snailso if i wanna put my mp3s into dirs like /music/artist/album/, must i do it manually? cause it's still in that itunes format F01 F02 etc...
13:43:49peturI did it manually when building up my collection, don't know if there are tools to do that - there probably are
13:44:05peturgoogle is your friend (TM)
13:45:07Murmur2kAnyone notice how the hard drive accesses a song frequently during song playback? Isn't it cached?
13:45:26peturFLAC files are big
13:45:33Murmur2kthis is with mp3
13:46:03Murmur2kor is it my build or something?
13:46:40peturit should be stuffing the buffer full, but this isn't my area of expertise :)
13:47:18Murmur2kok thanks
13:47:41german_snailif i delete iPod_Control folder will rockbox still run?
13:47:45german_snailyeah google is my friend
13:47:55german_snailbut i don't mind asking noob questions
13:48:03Murmur2kAlso any idea how to enable my full 60mb cache on my 5g Ipod? Currently only using 30mb
13:48:39peturMurmur2k: still on the to do list
13:49:04peturprobably shortly after the feature freeze
13:50:24Murmur2kSorry got all the questions - but was amazed to see this development while searching google today1

15:33:33amiconnFor me it does... though slowly
15:33:57mirakI think you misunderstand
15:33:58amiconnIf you use the disk, the drain from the disk is larger than the charging current
15:34:24mirakamiconn: but you don't see the bars charging like if you plug the alimentation cable
15:34:31amiconnIf you just have it connected but don't access it, then the disk should spin down, and the battery should slowly charge
15:35:00mirakI don't think linux power it off
15:35:11 Part Murmur2k
15:35:20mirakcharging from usb without accessing works. slowly but it works

16:32:21powerrangersfan1is there any mac gui to install the patch and themes>
16:32:42powerrangersfan1i wish if rockbox had a gui installer too!
16:33:34nudelyn2installing patches couldn't be automated... they're not plugins, they actually change the source code, so they can very easily break stuff when the main source code is updated...
16:33:58nudelyn2patches are really just experimental stuff... if you want an "easy" way to get their features you've gotta wait for them to make it into the official code, or find a friend who can patch for you
16:35:19powerrangersfan1oh so dont do them just stick with what i got? also on my ipod i cannot play doom it says error? also is there a way to make the apple os defult and rockbox not defult bootup

16:54:36powerrangersfan1how do i make it uninvisable
16:54:41thegeekyou can't
16:54:51thegeekyou could rename it to just "rockbox"
16:55:02thegeekand then rename it back to ".rockbox" when you have copied it
16:55:07powerrangersfan1should i just delete the folder on ipod and move it again
16:57:19powerrangersfan1ok i renamed the rockbox folder and when it finishded copyed onto my ipod i will rename it back to what it should be i guss
16:57:26powerrangersfan1i have no clue
16:59:45powerrangersfan1hey help i cannot rename it, it says already a folder with that name? should i delete the orignal .rockbox folder on my ipod thaat i installed last night?
17:01:56thegeekyou only need one question mark;)
17:02:30thegeekif you are prepared to reinstall, I would say go ahead and try it
17:02:31powerrangersfan1well i dont know what i should do? it will not let me copy the folder
17:03:10powerrangersfan1it takes to long to reinstall
17:03:40powerrangersfan1i wish if there was a betterway cause no i got to do tagcache all over again
17:04:11thegeekI don't use tagcache so I can't say anything about that
17:04:28powerrangersfan1oh well i already did that so i guss i will be alot of problems
17:04:30thegeekand I'm not saying you have to do it again
17:04:40thegeekI just mean that if anything goes wrong;)
17:04:58XavierGrcan someone clarify why whould one declare a function static? (I know about variables but I don't get it for functions)
17:06:14thegeekin java you can then use that function without actually creating a new object of that class
17:06:40thegeekbut I don' think that is relevant for c
17:06:46XavierGryes I know about that, though I think the meaning in C is different
17:06:51SlasheriXavierGr: making a function static, makes it unlinkable from other compiled object files
17:07:00thegeek"static functions are functions that are only visable to other functions in the same file."
17:07:07powerrangersfan1ok with that zipped folder you gave me do i have album art? also what build is it?
17:07:15Slasheriso generally it's good to make all functions static, that are used only inside the current source file (not declared in header files)
17:07:41XavierGrah so if a static function decleration is found on an .h file, other modules that include that file will not recognise the function?
17:07:58XavierGrah okay
17:08:04XavierGrforget the previous line
17:08:10SlasheriXavierGr: yep, that function is only usable from the source file it has been originally declared
17:08:32Slasherisame goes for static global variable also
17:08:48XavierGrso what happens if we have a static function in a header file?
17:09:02 Quit powerrangersfan1 ("Chatzilla 0.9.73 [Firefox]")
17:09:39SlasheriXavierGr: probably compiler just generates an error
17:09:59Slasherianyway, it wont work if called from other objects
17:10:15XavierGrso the morale is: No static on header files :p
17:15:29ACK54Wanyone use foobar here
17:21:52Mikachustatic functions in header files work fine, in fact i think you should _only_ have static functions. declarations of functions that are in .c files should not be static of course

19:13:54sharpewebguest77: yes
19:14:03linuxstbAre you left-handed?
19:14:07webguest77better imho to have it with the normal orientation, no?
19:15:01linuxstbwebguest77: The Space Invaders screen is too big to orientate it normally. It has to either be rotated or shrunk. Given that choice, I would prefer it rotated.
19:15:03sharpethe cabinents were rotated 90 degrees to have it actually as it should be, if i were to have it vertically, it wouldn't fit the screen.

21:42:21zedpassen1: hmm just saw on wikipedia 10fps xvid... thats pretty sad
21:42:36dpassen1ze: Yeah, its clearly not a video player
21:43:14dpassen1224x180 is hardly high resolution, also.
21:43:41zeso its basically an mp3 player with a color screen
21:44:29zehmm am i missing something about the output power on these? karma specs say 55mW per channel at 16 oms, these irivers say 20mW per channel at 16 oms
21:44:39zeis it really less than half the output power of the karma?
21:45:58dpassen1While I've never handled a Karma, I can't say I've had problems using my 120 with several headphones, but I've never used especially high impedance phones.
21:46:21zelets see mine are 64oms
21:47:06zeon the karma a level of 26 out of 30 (iirc) is the highest i can stand with these and only ever use in noisy environments like on the freeway
21:47:38zeoften times in quiet environments more than 24'll hurt my ears a little
21:49:11zewhy can't there be a clear-cut upgrade from the karma?
21:49:23dpassen1Because the Chroma was never released
21:49:26zeas long as its been since it came out, you'd think there'd be something clearly better on the market
21:50:11dpassen1It's more subjective than that.
21:50:36zeit also doesn't help that none of the local stores that provide decent service plans have any h1x0's or such

21:54:23zelike if bestbuy had it, and we got a 3 year service plan, it'd be pretty likely that it'd need replacement by the time something better was out to replace it with
21:54:52zelike maybe something made out of the sigmatel kit based on what was to be the chroma
21:57:17dpassen1I have a bad feeling most of the companies using the Sigmatel kit will cripple it

21:58:31 Quit bluebrother ("Leaving")
21:58:41zeor sometihng like that
21:59:55dpassen1But then we're back at the starting point, any Rockboxed DAP has the general feature set (excuse me if I'm wrong) of the Karma/Chroma/Sigmatel SMTP3600
22:00:54zeafaik karma is superior, hardware-wise, to any of the rockboxed players
22:01:04zethe only thing i can find that'd be clearly better than a karma is a rockboxed karma
22:01:11dpassen1How so?
22:02:33preglowhuzzas, another pdf viewer request
22:03:17zehow is it superior? well some of this may be subjective, but i like its size/shape, the scroll wheel, the audio quality (output power, SNR), the 64-shade grayscale screen (well the h3x0's have color of course, but seem to lack in the other areas), the dock with rca outs, ethernet connectivity
22:04:48zethe ethernet's kindof an odd one... with the rio firmware it only serves to make up for its lack of mass-storage compliance for us linux folk, so in that sense its not that great of a feature that has anything over something rockboxed
22:05:09zebut then if it were rockboxed, it'd allow streaming music, web-based player control, and neat stuff like that
22:06:27zethen the lack of MSC is also made up for more recently by a linux driver for the usb interface that mimicks MSC
22:06:40Mikachupreglow: close it instead of complaining about it on irc :P
22:07:10preglowdone it already
22:07:26zethe main barrier to it getting rockboxed seems to be public-key encrypted firmware upgrades too, since a lot of its main hardware is the same as various ipods
22:07:43zebut oh well, looks like i'll have to get over that vague possibility
22:08:00dpassen1ze: I think it shows a lot that I've chosen a 140 to replace my 120, even though Rockbox is being ported to iPods and the iAudio X5
22:08:55preglowwe all know the h1x0 is the best player anyway
22:08:59dpassen1For me, a Rockboxed H1x0 is the best player on the market
22:09:16dpassen1No spurious color screen, just a brilliant music player.
22:10:30zeso why aren't the h1x0's available anywhere with an in-store service plan? :/
22:10:50dpassen1Its a rather old player

22:55:57zei never got around to upgrading my kernel to the version required to try the versions of the driver since they added write support at all
22:56:40zethis place seling the karma player-only for $100 buy-it-now has accepted a $60 offer on it previously
22:57:20ze"Iem as described, seems to be working good, would buy from again." feedback on the sale
22:58:29linuxstbDoes the karma have a 2.5" hard disk?

22:59:02goffai don't remember
22:59:06goffabut i think it did
22:59:33goffai think rockbox would be pretty sweet on a karma
22:59:41goffaof course i'd have to get mine fixed

23:00:35linuxstbAh no, I've just googled, and they seem to be 1.8" drives.

23:01:50zepeople have dremmeled out their cases to make 9.5mm drives fit, but people complain that the case is a lot flimsier afterwards
23:02:21zei'm not certain if anybody's tried any non-hitachi's
23:02:37zepeople seem to mainly play it safe by going with those, even if ones from other vendors may work
23:03:10zegoffa: whats broken on yours?
23:04:13zewell its still usable without that, just not as nice
23:04:17goffafell about 1 ft and landed on the corner
23:04:21goffayeah it is useable
23:04:31goffasucks compared to my other players
23:04:48zeyeah lack of wheel on the karma would detract a lot from it
23:05:00zeyou can get a replacement mainboard for $28 on ebay
23:05:23sharpeokay, here's the latest screenshot...">
23:05:23goffai should ebay the thing with broken wheel
23:05:32sharpenot that anyone asked for it, but still.
23:06:04goffacool.. you porting that sharpe?
23:06:17goffaused to love that game
23:06:57sharpethat's just a screenshot of it playing the demo, right before it freezes due to some error probably with the cpu emulation...
23:07:30goffastill nice to see someone working on that
23:07:43sharpejust started working on it yesterday too...
23:08:07goffaan atari emulator would be good
23:08:23Mikachui would be happy even for a .ym player

23:13:49zethats cheap enough to where i can take it for something to at least hold me over on a player from an as-yet-unreleased generation in a year or 2

23:14:59sharpethis will be the third time i go through the cpu code... :'(
23:15:53zethis way i'll also have a spare battery and mainboard
23:16:21zeeven though this mainboard isn't 100%, the only thing wrong with it is the hold switch, so
23:16:39goffai guess hold switch isn't working on mine
23:16:43goffabut then... like you say
23:17:01zethe lack of a hold switch is an annoyance, but not a big deal
23:17:28zeand if it were ever to get rockboxed, it'd be easy to work around with a soft hold key combo
23:17:49zewhich i always thought kinda made more sense than a dedicated hardware switch anyway
23:18:04Mikachuhardware switch is easier in pocket
23:18:09 Quit _Veseliq_ (Remote closed the connection)
23:18:20Mikachuand for protecting the on button
23:18:39zeeasier depends on the key combo and button layout
23:18:44zeon button depends on how the on button's wired
23:18:55zei suppose holding it off is hard for firmware to do though
23:19:20Mikachuat least on ipods you need to turn hold off first
23:19:31Mikachuunless you carry around a universal plug, that also boots it :)
23:21:10Mikachuheh, it doesn't boot if the plug isn't connected to power
23:21:25zeif there's any rw storage area for config on the karma outside of the HD
23:21:34zethen a soft hold would work just as well as the switch
23:21:40zefor the on button
23:21:50zecause on the karma, if the hold's on, and you hit the on button
23:22:00zethe screen comes up and shows a lock graphic
23:22:05zefor a few seconds and then shuts off again
23:22:12Mikachuthat's a bit silly
23:22:13 Join _Veseliq_ [0] (n=veseliq@
23:22:21zeit doesn't spin up the HD or even turn on the backlight i don't think
23:23:33ze hmm well the backlight blinks on for a split second whenever you press the on button, even when locked
23:23:47zebut yeah since firmware is in flash rom
23:24:00zewell hmm
23:24:12zei guess it'd still be weird with a soft hold
23:24:52zethere'd have to be some way to turn on the hold while the player's in some sort of on state and also instruct it to shut off with the hold engaged
23:25:28zeand then when you actually wanted to turn it on you'd have to have some combo to override the hold status or turn it on to where it did that lock graphic sorta thing and hit the hold combo to turn it off and make it boot
23:26:05zei suppose a special combo that means "turn on hold and shut off" and then another combo that means "turn on and turn off hold" would work ok
23:26:17zei'm sure this is all moot :p
