#rockbox log for 2006-06-09

00:00:40 Quit Poka64 ("XChat 2.6.1 -")
00:00:47amiconnpetur: The call causing the panic with the irq disabled check is lcd_init() from main.c
00:01:01 Join rotator [0] (n=e@rockbox/developer/rotator)
00:01:19*amiconn wonders how lcd_init() can proceed when interrupts are disabled and it's using sleep() ...
00:02:00peturamiconn: my panicf() gives me a white display - on key is processed ok (reboots)
00:02:52amiconnI'm testing on h140 - my h340 is still open for more temperature checks
00:03:11 Join Poka64 [0] (
00:03:25peturprobably the display stuff isn't init enough to display the text.
00:03:42amiconnI guess the reason for the panic is the same on h300, but the init doesn't run far enough to leave you with an usable display
00:03:54peturwill find a way to enable the irq check later
00:04:12amiconnJust enable interrupts earlier - but still, this is a bug...
00:04:35peturI'll commit the panicf fix, gives me the feeling to have done something tonight :/
00:05:02amiconnThere is a set_irq_level(0) in main.c a few lines down from the lcd_init() call
00:05:32*amiconn still wonders how this can work
00:05:44amiconnHmm, no panic now

00:09:18peturindeed, no panic now :)
00:10:00peturthe moment I enter recording screen it panics
00:10:14peturwith text this time :)
00:10:17amiconnHmm, not here
00:10:31amiconnI guess you have your interrupt-disabled i2c in place?
00:10:57peturyeps, and gain is set when entering recording
00:10:59 Quit TCK (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:12:03*amiconn got rockbox to freeze in the fm screen :(
00:13:18*petur was lazy and didn't add the extensive panic info of amiconn....
00:13:41amiconnHehe, I have even more info available now
00:14:04peturany reason irq is enabled so late in main.c?
00:14:08amiconn(a mini stackdump, since putting __builtin_return_address() into sleep() didn't work correctly for some reason)
00:14:20peturgive :)
00:16:42peturdamn, now my on-to-reboot-in-panic-screen doesn't work anymore :(
00:17:42rotator!! wiki spam alert, "HerohitoNakomode"

00:18:30peturwhat the heck is synth.c anyway?
00:18:51Bagderobo's server has gone gcc 4.1

00:19:06Bagderdebian unstable
00:19:29*amiconn is also running debian unstable
00:19:35amiconnNo gcc 4.1 yet though
00:19:43Bagderyou'll get it when you update ;-)
00:19:47peturkindly give my earned build points to odo please ;)
00:20:07BagderI expect our servers to take that leap soonish too
00:20:51*amiconn won't update too soon
00:21:05amiconnEvery time I update, something is bound to go wrong

00:22:29peturduh... the thread_switch with disabled irq I detected was in i2c because *I* disabled irq's... /me stupid!
00:23:26amiconnyes of course
00:23:35peturI'm such an idiot
00:24:03 Quit ender` (" Some people have one of those days. I've had one of those lives.")
00:24:12amiconnBuHmm. What puzzles me is that seems to be the only thread switch with disabled interrupts, yet it freezes rockbox
00:24:45amiconnDid you test with the remote plugged in?
00:25:07 Join Higgy____ [0] (
00:25:14amiconnI didn't
00:25:20*amiconn silly as well

00:25:47peturbtw, the remote is a kind donation of whatboutbob
00:26:01amiconn...but I don't get panics with the remote plugged either
00:26:56petursame here :(
00:26:56 Join ydnar [0] (
00:27:14peturso were sure now that isn't the cause
00:27:23peturs/were/we're while calling yield() with disabled interrupts seems to cause the freeze, your i2c thing is the only place that does this call, and my first theory *how* it happens doesn't hold
00:27:54sharpehow could i tell which firmware belongs to which device...?
00:29:06 Quit TeaSea ("Leaving")

00:36:46amiconni2c is mutex protected
00:37:08peturit is?
00:37:25 Quit darkless (Read error: 113 (No route to host))
00:38:16 Join damaki_ [0] (
00:39:04amiconnBlah. It _should_ be, but it seems i2c_begin() and i2c_end(9 are never called
00:39:23amiconn...enither from within i2c.c, nor from uda1380.c
00:39:26peturI added a recursive call check and got hit right away
00:40:21amiconnBlah, ignore that
00:40:29amiconni2c.c isn't for coldfire
00:41:08amiconnKnew that earlier tonight :/
00:41:24peturand i2c_write is called during its sleep()
00:41:34 Part Paul_The_Nerd
00:41:45peturcausing it to lock waiting for the bus to be free probably
00:42:20peturnah, that one yields too
00:42:21amiconni2c-coldfire.c doesn't seem to have any protection against being called from 2 threads - and it yields.....
00:42:33peturnot good
00:43:52peturadd the same mutex as i2c.c ? it yields if the mutex is locked I hope?
00:45:37amiconnmutex_lock() sleeps the caller until the mutex is unlocked by the previous lock holder
00:46:01amiconn..but we need 2 mutexes in i2c-coldfire.c
00:46:14amiconn..for each of the 2 controllers
00:46:28peturoh right
00:46:37peturforgotten all about that
00:48:02amiconnThe placement of set_irq_level(0) in main.c doesn't seem to have any special reason
00:48:29amiconnWhen it was introduced, there were only 2 calls before it, and later it was moved in front of one of them
00:48:48amiconn(but a bunch of others was introduced before & after this move)
00:48:56peturso no platform tests needed?

00:59:56amiconn..or if you have to get up early? ;)
01:00:51sharpewell, i've a generic tool that supposedly works for windows, linux, and osx, however; i do not know how i should label the firmwares...
01:01:02peturamiconn: what if I'd add an argument to the i2c_write call whether it can sleep or not?
01:01:18 Quit EbErT ()
01:03:56amiconnSounds ugly...
01:04:09amiconnThe mutex protection will still sleep
01:04:37amiconn...and it has to sleep (or yield), since otherwise a deadlock would be guaranteed
01:04:48peturso, keep the mutex but don't disable irq or remove the sleep altogether
01:06:29 Join dj-fu [0] (
01:07:18amiconnAfaiu the mutex is necessary unless we can *guarantee* that that each of the i2c controller is always exclusively used by a single thread
01:07:23 Quit obo ("bye")
01:08:17amiconn...but if we use the mutex, we must not disable interrupts, because the mutex sleeps() while busy
01:08:45petursee my last remark: keep the mutex but don't disable irq or remove the sleep altogether
01:08:47amiconn..but that's exactly what we want to achieve - disable interrupts in order to avoid glitches
01:08:54amiconnWhich sleep?
01:09:05peturin i2c_write
01:09:26petursorry, yield
01:09:37amiconnYeah, then we wouldn't need the mutex as well, but we waste cpu cycles
01:09:52peturso do the bitbanged ones
01:10:05peturand afaik, they're used more
01:10:07amiconnYes, but they can't do better
01:10:55peturwho's using the i2c_write anyway? the uda and ... ?
01:11:23amiconnWell, in the iriver, one channel is exclusively hooked to the uda
01:11:43amiconn..and the other is exclusively hooked to the fm chip
01:12:05peturso not critical at all
01:12:06amiconn..but for the latter, we can't even use the i2c controller, but have to bitbang (!!)
01:12:18amiconnIriver forgot a simple pullup...
01:12:54amiconnStill, even the uda could be accessed by more than 1 thread
01:13:14peturis this the same for h1x0 and h3x0?
01:13:37peturthe uda isn't accessed a lot, is it?
01:14:27amiconnNot atm - that's probably why no one noticed a problem with the missing mutex
01:14:35*petur want's to get rid of the yields() in i2c_write
01:15:02amiconnBtw, I found no problem with the moved up set_irq_level(0); in main.c
01:15:36peturyou commit or me?
01:16:39peturhmmm... I need some sleep() myself

01:47:23Cisalus:( I'm a noob at the whole. Bootloading game?
01:47:41CisalusAnd I put the binary in the FIRMWARE folder, and extracted the other stuff to the directory..
01:47:55CisalusBut it won't start up with Rockbox, just starts up normal when I turn it on
01:48:26CisalusDon't laugh too hard−− I seriously don't know what I'm doing at all. The X5 just definitely has the crappiest UI in the world.

06:24:36sharpeyeah, what i was thinking too.
06:25:10sharpe"just for that, you get a cookie!"
06:25:52sharpelittle do they know, someone actually ships a cookie in a hermetically sealed container.
06:26:57sharpehowever it never reaches it's destination, as the sender never put the to address, as they never got one, and didn't put a return address.
06:27:07sharpeso it ends up at the bottom of a very large pile
06:27:13sharpeand then nuclear winter sets in
06:27:21midkayalright, too far.

06:28:21midkay.. because sharpe wants hot sex.. from what i'd expect is a man... :E
06:28:37sharpeer, "cool, thanks!" would be acceptable really.
06:28:39midkayyou're awful eager to try for hot man sex.
06:28:52dj-fuRighto. I can settle for cool thanks

06:30:33sharpei hate you midkay.
06:31:15sharpewhy does this not make any sense: "Intel first to ship dual core"
06:31:17sharpenever mind.
06:31:28sharpei thought it said core duo.
06:31:41sharpemaking me think, "well, they do manufacture the chip..."
06:33:46ashridahsharpe: who on earth said that?
06:34:03sharpei was just reading the wikpedia article on multi-core.
06:34:15sharpeand it had a link to an article with that title
06:42:18sharpeso. yep.
06:45:19ashridahi suppose they could have been thinking about hyperthreading, which isn't dual-core, but morons sometimes think it is
06:45:59sharpebecause of things like... qvc... and hsn....

08:16:35ashridahstandard filesystem drag and drop

08:17:10ashridahany folder.
08:17:18 Quit NicP ("Leaving")
08:17:43tge101in the \.rockbox? or do i make a music folder?
08:17:58 Part JdGordon
08:17:59ashridahany folder off the root. i wouldn't put them in .rockbox
08:18:08ashridahrockbox can find music pretty much anywhere on the device
08:18:27tge101no shit?
08:18:33ashridahalthough you may need to trigger a tagcache update if that's what you're using. otherwise they'll just appear in the directory view
08:18:40ashridahit has no requirements for an itunes-like db
08:18:46dj-futhat's half the point of using it
08:18:53dj-funot needing a shitty app to put music on the device
08:19:04tge101whats the tagcahe thing all about?
08:19:15dj-futagcache reads ID3 tags and adds em to a database
08:19:24ashridahtge101: tagcache is basically rockbox's own ID3 tag database
08:19:25dj-fuallowing you to sort your music by artist, track, whatnot.
08:19:44ashridahhandy for ipod users who've used itunes in the past, since that munges the filenames
08:20:09dj-fuaye. it does. I raged so hard when it ruined my well organised and named collection
08:20:10tge101should it already be on there if i just got the new build the other day or do i have to do something separate for that?
08:20:11ashridahbut rockbox doesn't require it to function, it can just use the directory tree directly,
08:21:02ashridahyou need to force the construction of it, i think it's under general->playback or something. takes a while, since it's being created on the device itself.

10:55:31LinusNi managed to get ups to deliver to my work address
10:55:56LinusNbut the change of address had to be confirmed by the sender too
10:56:13preglowallows good use of wheel acceleeration with no button flag messing
10:56:52Mikachui think the absolute value should also be provided somehow
10:56:58LinusNi tried to use rockbox on my ipod, and it feels a little sensitive on the controls
10:57:08preglowMikachu: indeed
10:57:13preglowLinusN: it is a wee bit
10:57:16MikachuLinusN: i changed the delta value from 4 to 10 in my build
10:57:27preglow10 is far too much, imho
10:57:34preglowbut it should be adjustable anyway
10:57:35LinusNthe lcd on the 5g is awesome
10:57:40preglowit is...
10:57:43earHertzodd, I use a delta od 2, and find it better
10:57:50Mikachuthe nano's wheel is smaller, maybe you need slightly different values
10:58:08preglowpoint being we need it configurable anyway
10:58:11Mikachui tend to not use the outer edge of the wheel either
10:58:19earHertzMikachu: i think absilurte and absolte delat shoukd vbe provided as well, but I expect that few clients will use them
10:58:19preglowwe should add a separate clickwheel entry

14:23:28Genre9mp3Oh, that is actually what I had in mind when saying "streaming data directly"
14:24:12Genre9mp3This has to do with isochronus USB transfer mode, right?

14:27:23 Quit Flutterby (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
14:27:44kerbI've been having trouble with osx not wanting to mount it, and the ipod updater in windows not wanting to update, and itunes not finding it in windows etc
14:27:44Genre9mp3petur: And where we could use isochronus with a H300?
14:27:51amiconnGenre9mp3, petur: Generally it should be possible to access the data on an USB MSD directly via mounting.
14:28:19peturGenre9mp3: well to attach a webcam or usb speakers
14:28:32amiconnWhat's unclear yet is how fast these transfers actually are, and how much cpu power they suck
14:29:01Genre9mp3petur: I understood the difference
14:29:04amiconnDepending on that, it might be impossible to play music directly from an USB disk
14:29:48peturthe Philips demo software for the isp1362 supports playing a wav file to usb speakers, so the chip can handle it...
14:29:54amiconnEnabling all these possibilities means quite some work apart from the USB stack
14:30:05***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
14:30:20Genre9mp3amiconn:I was able to play directly MP3 from an external HDD using an old IBM laptop that had USB1.1
14:30:21peturyeah, we should get UMS supported first
14:30:39amiconnThe USB stack would need to present UMS devices in a way that resembles the ata.c api
14:31:06peturGenre9mp3: reading the file over USB or streaming the audio?
14:31:25amiconn..and the file system driver, while already supporting multivolume, would need to be extended a little further, in that it needs to access two different ata.c-like drivers
14:31:43 Quit darkless (Client Quit)
14:31:54Genre9mp3petur: Just drag & drop an mp3 file to Winamp
14:32:28peturGenre9mp3: that's not streaming then, just using UMS to read the file
14:32:39amiconnThe latter could be done in defining a "meta ata driver" that looks like a multi-device ata driver for the file system, and accesses the real thing for device == 0, and UMS for device == 1
14:32:40petur( = bulk transfer)
14:33:09peturhey, I want acces to ALL cards of my multi-card reader
14:33:29amiconnYeah, then devices >= 1 would access UMS
14:33:37Genre9mp3petur:Well, just explained the difference...
14:33:49amiconn...but the number of volumes has a fixed (compile time limit)
14:33:56amiconnNote: volumes, not devices
14:34:06Genre9mp3The chip is incapable of USB2.0 USBOTG, right?
14:34:21amiconnUSBOTG *is* an USB 2.0 addition
14:34:31amiconn...but you probably mean high speed mode
14:34:40amiconn...which it isn't capable of
14:34:51Genre9mp3amiconn: Yes I meant high speed
14:34:55B4gderI love the full/high speed mess
14:35:03amiconnIt's not a mess
14:35:05B4gderit is
14:35:13B4gderits incomprehensible
14:35:20B4gderwhat the heck is full and what is high
14:35:21peturGenre9mp3: streaming (isochronous) would be your player's codec converting the mp3/whatever to a stream of audiobytes and the connected device just send them through a DAC

14:35:32Paul_The_NerdTo me "high" means less than "full" anyway.

14:36:05ashridahyeah, can't exactly go faster than full speed, or you wouldn't have been doing full speed
14:36:17Paul_The_NerdWell, USB2.0 can.
14:36:19Paul_The_NerdIt's special
14:36:23amiconnThen use the plain numbers
14:36:37Genre9mp3petur: Are there any USB Speakers in the market?
14:36:40amiconn1.5MBit/s, 12MBit/s and 480MBit/s
14:36:52B4gderI prefer the numbers
14:37:01linuxstbI agree - "full" and "high" are meaningless. Numbers are more useful.

14:38:15B4gderwell, I find that less frequent
14:38:17amiconnUSB2.0 is a protocol version, not a transfer speed

14:41:52peturunless they have super good DAC's
14:42:09Genre9mp3So the chip can host at full/12MBit/s, right?
14:43:02peturbut you never fully get that speed (as with networking)
14:43:17linuxstbpetur: If it's technically possible, then why not? But it doesn't seem a high priority feature to me. UMS and digital camera protocols seem much more useful.
14:43:42Genre9mp3Yes...and this "Mount" capability....
14:44:03peturthat's what linuxstb said :p
14:44:11amiconnThe mount capability itself is already there
14:44:32Genre9mp3The UMS thing?

14:44:57amiconnNo, but the ability to dynamically mount/unmount additional filesystems
14:45:43Genre9mp3Also it would be cool if we could stream video via a WebCam, but would be this possible at full speed?

18:23:02redondosHello. I just installed rockbox to an iPod nano. Is it possible to boot the apple firmware or are they mutually exclusive?
18:23:18redondosBecause the manual says that id I want to boot the original firmware I should remove the rockbox.ipod directory.
18:23:25HClPaul_The_Nerd: doesn't work..
18:23:30redondosWhy can't I just choose which one to boot?
18:26:51ryranredondos: you can. you have to hold down the menu button when booting to boot into the original firmware
18:27:06Paul_The_NerdHCl: The link doesn't work, or the instructions do not? From what I understand that's the official CVS wiki manual.
18:27:46redondosryran: Great, thank you.
18:27:56Paul_The_NerdHCl: Well, that's what they say to do. I'd suggest just doing some further google research then.
18:28:01HClit spits out some weird list which in no way resembles any kind of last cvs commits done
18:28:07HClyea, that's why I asked here
18:28:10HClI'm desperate :/
18:28:18ryranredondos: keep in mind though that you really need to hold it down like.. *from the beginning* or it won't do it
18:28:51ryranredondos: then, to get back into rockbox, just to a reset by holding down menu + select for 5 seconds
18:28:52Paul_The_NerdHCl: You tried cvs log, as well as cvs history?
18:29:00HClcvs log sort of works
18:29:05HClI can't set a date before
18:29:10HCland it simply spits out all commits ever made
18:29:12Learhci: there's a script that pieces the log together, possibly from several cvs commands.

18:29:51Paul_The_NerdIf you followed the links within the articles, it tells you how to set a range of links for the log command

18:32:31HClyea, that
18:32:36HClso that's what i did
18:32:56Learhci: see here:
18:32:57Paul_The_NerdI assume you could do "2005/10/1<2005/10/3";"2005/10/5<2005/10/6"
18:33:14Paul_The_NerdThe ; is a separator of elements in the list, according to the wiki page
18:33:35HClyea, so i thought they wanted the first date and then the second date separated by a ;

20:05:18Paul_The_NerdAnd: I still think you should just use VMWare.
20:05:23dunnofiles all over the place
20:05:26Paul_The_NerdWell yeah
20:05:36Paul_The_NerdAfter running "Make" did you follow with "make fullzip"?
20:05:39dunnoI dont really want to install linux on my pc
20:05:52Paul_The_NerdVMWare isn't installing linux.
20:05:56ryranyeah dude
20:06:02sharpehence the, "Virtual Machine"
20:06:03dionoeacygwin should work fine :)
20:06:05Paul_The_NerdYou install a single program, VMWare player, and it basically runs a virtual computer.
20:06:12Paul_The_NerdThat fake computer runs Linux
20:06:14ryranI haven't tried cygwin but vmware worked superwell for me yesterday
20:06:32dunnoryan, i might be a dude to you, but i dont really like computers, no matter what flavour they are
20:06:33Paul_The_Nerddionoea: Cygwin takes twice as long to compile, and has far more potential complications while setting up.

20:07:14dionoeaPaul_The_Nerd: but it takes less disk space :)
20:07:44sharpethat it does.
20:07:45ryranwell I suppose you have a choice then
20:08:01ryrankeep playing with cygwin and have it take longer, or try vmware
20:08:04Paul_The_Nerddunno: Anyway, did you do a "make fullzip" after the make?
20:08:16Paul_The_Nerddunno: It doesn't create a .zip file until you run the second command.
20:08:45dunnoPaul dont remember, so I'll another make fullzip, this time
20:08:57Paul_The_Nerddunno: You can also do "make zip" if you're okay with it leaving out the fonts. But it's always "make" which creates all the files, then "make zip" or "make fullzip" which puts those files in a .zip to use.
20:10:00dunnohaha, was typing irc in the cygwin window, thanks for that tip about the fonts, will try it

20:28:16Ish_nittiHeh, well my ipod is trashed
20:28:52Ish_nittii used the bootloader-color-nondefualt.bin instead of the video bootloader
20:29:03Paul_The_Nerdipodpatcher -w N bootpartition.bin
20:29:11Ish_nittiyeah i did that
20:29:18Ish_nittioh wait
20:29:20Ish_nittiwithout the -w
20:29:30Paul_The_NerdYou did it with the -r to extract it
20:29:35Paul_The_Nerd-w writes it back, restoring the original
20:29:44Paul_The_NerdTo undo what you've done.
20:29:55sharpei still have to get around to writing that tutorial on updating the apple firmware.
20:29:55Ish_nittithis is what i did
20:29:56Ish_nittiipodpatcher -w N rockboot.bin
20:30:09sharpedid you put the number of your ipod in for N ?
20:30:10Ish_nittishould that be the bootloader?
20:30:13***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
20:30:17Paul_The_NerdYes, but you used the wrong bootloader
20:30:17sharpeokay. making sure.
20:30:21Paul_The_NerdAnd I just told you how to undo it.
20:30:44Ish_nittiso i should put the booloader-color-nondefualt.bin instead of rockboot.bin right?
20:31:00Paul_The_Nerdnotice it says "color" not "video"
20:31:12Ish_nittibut i needed that dual boot function
20:31:18Ish_nittii guess it wont be doable.
20:31:35sharpehammer time!
20:31:42Paul_The_Nerd1) The official bootloader does dual boot. The one you tried to use defaults to Apple instead of Rockbox is all
20:31:58Paul_The_Nerd2) Why did you think using software for a different iPod would work? Why would we label which one they were for if it didn't matter?
20:32:15Ish_nittiI was unaware i could still dual boot
20:32:24Ish_nittiwith the proper firmware
20:32:28Paul_The_Nerd3) Just boot your ipod into disk mode (menu+select held to reboot, then hold select+play to go into disk mode), then do the command I told you to restore the original apple firmware partition.
20:32:35Paul_The_NerdThen follow the instructions PROPERLY this time.
20:32:40 Quit Psilonaut ()
20:32:47Paul_The_NerdYour iPod's fine

20:33:30Ish_nittiYeah i know its fine, i was just saying i crapped it :)
20:33:36Paul_The_NerdYou do end up sending rockboot.bin over, because it's what you get when you merge the bootloader with the apple firmware, but you *need* to create it with the proper bootloader bin file.
20:33:43Ish_nittiWell in disk mode it just says "Ok to disconnect"
20:33:47Ish_nittiyet its not connected to the USB
20:33:55Paul_The_NerdSo plug in the USB

21:43:31pekujaok, well what I wanted to ask is that with the problem that sometimes a plugin can hog all the CPU by not yeilding, so will plugins that don't be included in the release version or will those be fixed or taken out of the release version?
21:43:38Ish_nittiwell i booted into a stock rockbox, how do i get to my music now?
21:43:46Ish_nittiim thinking i have to create a playlist
21:43:52Ish_nittior just read the freakin pdf manual
21:44:00Paul_The_NerdIsh_nitti: If you have music hidden by iTunes, try reading the TagCache wiki page.
21:44:18Paul_The_Nerdpekuja: Which plugin are you thinking of?
21:44:26pekujanot any one in particular
21:44:29Paul_The_Nerdpekuja: I haven't experienced that problem on my H100 at all.
21:44:35Paul_The_NerdDo you know any plugins that don't yield?
21:44:36pekujaI have a H300
21:45:01pekujayeah, I did have a problem with at least one... let me check
21:45:27pekujabut anyways, the particular plugin wasn't really my point, but I was wondering if that will be tested somewhat
21:45:47Paul_The_NerdWell, we depend on people to actually *report* bugs.
21:45:48pekujaI mean at least to check that all plugins yeild at least a bit
21:45:57Paul_The_NerdSo, if you want it to get fixed, it'd be nice if you figured out which one it is.
21:46:15pekujaI guess that's one way of looking at it
21:46:48Ish_nittiSo it looks like i need to force a tagcache update
21:46:54Paul_The_NerdWell, I mean, if I don't have this problem at all, clearly I can't find it.
21:47:05Paul_The_NerdIf you're experiencing it, you sorta are the only person who knows exactly how it happens.
21:47:17pekujawell yeah, but I mean is that a sort of thing that gets checked before release or whatever?
21:47:32Paul_The_NerdFor release we try to fix as many reported bugs as possible.
21:47:40pekujaI mean if I was making a software release like that, I wouldn't want to ship buggy plugins with it since it's pretty easy to check if it's buggy or not
21:47:49Paul_The_NerdHow is it "easy?"
21:48:10Paul_The_NerdThere are over 20 plugins, 10 formats of supported music, and problems that may only occur at certain bitrates or under certain listening conditions.
21:48:18pekujawell of course
21:48:19Ish_nittiI agree
21:48:26Paul_The_NerdSo, how is it easy exactly?
21:48:34pekujabut I guess some problems might appear with any, if the plugin never yeilds, right?
21:48:45Paul_The_NerdHave you checked in the code that it never yields?
21:48:56Paul_The_NerdOr are you just assuming that it does?
21:49:14pekujaI'm not assuming anything. I'm not talking about a particular plugin.
21:49:25pekujaI'm just wondering if the developers tend to check if all the plugins yeild or not.
21:49:35 Join yeahx [0] (
21:49:52pekujabecause if I understand correctly, not yeilding would pretty much guarantee that it will hog the CPU
21:50:01Paul_The_NerdPretty much, yes.
21:50:07Paul_The_NerdIt'd be *quite* noticeable if it didn't yield.
21:50:33Paul_The_NerdAnd if people reported bugs, we'd then know about it.
21:50:57Paul_The_NerdIt's not like a developer can sit down and audit all the plugin code to make sure yields are used properly.
21:51:01pekujawell of course, but I mean you must do some testing of your own?
21:51:07Paul_The_NerdLike what kind?
21:51:18Paul_The_NerdIt's an open source project.
21:51:25Paul_The_NerdWhy don't you contribute and do some testing and provide feedback?
21:51:25pekujathat doesn't mean you can't test it
21:51:38Paul_The_NerdBut it means that you *can*
21:51:55Paul_The_NerdIt's a concern of yours. We haven't received bug reports on the plugins, so the assumption is that they're working.
21:52:20Paul_The_NerdI mean honestly, compared to playback code the plugins are a very minor thing anyway.
21:52:24pekujaso you just write the code and assume it works?
21:52:35pekujawell yeah, that's exactly why it's important that they don't mess the playback up
21:52:39pekujabut I do get your point
21:52:39 Quit Poka64 ("just for now")
21:52:46Paul_The_Nerdpekuja: Why aren't you testing them?
21:53:00Paul_The_NerdThe code isn't just written and assumed it works.
21:53:01Genre9mp3Hehe...I like the basic focus of this conversation...
21:53:07 Quit akaidiota (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
21:53:16Paul_The_NerdA plugin gets in by being written, several people trying it, finding it works, agreeing that it meets quality standards, and including it.
21:53:18pekujaPaul_The_Nerd, I'm testing right now.
21:53:25Paul_The_NerdThere's no assumption that it works
21:53:30Paul_The_NerdIt's tested when it gets included
21:53:38pekujaPaul_The_Nerd, And yeah, I was only asking whether you conduct testing before a release, or do you count on bug reports.
21:53:39Paul_The_NerdBut there's no audit to see if yields are being used correctly or anything
21:53:56Paul_The_NerdTesting is usually done before a plugin is included
21:54:02 Part yeahx
21:54:02Paul_The_NerdIt would be remiss to wait until a release cycle to test them
21:54:11pekujawell I guess that answers my question
21:54:17pekujaof course it would
21:54:18Paul_The_NerdAnd it's not like the yields are going to mysteriously vanish from the code.
21:54:31pekujabut it might be a good idea to check at the release cycle too
21:54:39Paul_The_NerdFor what? Vanishing yields?
21:54:50pekujaor are the plugins not modified at all after they're included?
21:54:50Paul_The_NerdAnd what test conditions?
21:55:15Paul_The_NerdYes, but as has been said, there are hundreds, possibly thousands, of test conditions
21:55:31Paul_The_NerdThe obvious ones WILL be noticed, the non-obvious ones have to be depended on widespread use to be noticed.
21:55:49Paul_The_NerdSo, under what conditions do you recommend testing occur?
21:56:39pekujamaybe my question was too obvious
21:56:56Paul_The_NerdWhat *exactly* are you proposing?
21:57:11pekujaI'm not proposing anything. I asked a question.
21:57:15Paul_The_NerdYou started off by citing a specific problem (a plugin not yielding).
21:57:16pekujaI think I know the answer now.
21:57:34Paul_The_NerdYou seem to think there should be some testing process.
21:57:39pekujayeah, or moreso the fact that a plugin might stop audio playback
21:57:41Paul_The_NerdBut you also don't seem to know what it should be.
21:57:56Paul_The_NerdAnd you've hypothesized a bug that as far as you know doesn't actually exist.
21:58:38pekujawell I do know that I got my audio playback to stop at one point by running a plugin

21:59:33Ish_nittii have to install some patches
22:00:10Paul_The_NerdIsh_nitti: Patches require compiling your own build.
22:00:11pekujaPaul_The_Nerd, well I'm testing now, and I found that pacbox and metronome completely stop the audio playback, but I guess that's intentional?
22:00:22pekujaPaul_The_Nerd, it'd be nice if there was a warning about that though
22:00:29sharpepekuja: it's intentional.
22:00:51Paul_The_NerdSo, no bug yet.
22:01:29pekujawell there kind of is
22:01:38sharpeand what would that be?
22:01:54pekujawell it stops the audio playback without user request
22:02:12Paul_The_NerdThe user requested to run a plugin with audio.
22:02:13pekujait's not obvious that something called "pacbox" stops audio playback
22:02:24pekujawell yeah, but he might not know that
22:02:28pekujalike I didn't
22:02:32Paul_The_NerdThen he didn't read the manual
22:02:37Paul_The_NerdWhich describes what the plugins are.
22:02:43Paul_The_NerdPacbox is a PacMan emulator.
22:02:58pekujadoes it tell that pacbox stops audio playback?
22:03:01Paul_The_Nerd"The user didn't read the manual" is not a bug.
22:03:03Paul_The_NerdPacMan has sound.
22:03:21Ish_nittilooks like the author for this theme already compiled it with the patches
22:03:28Paul_The_NerdDoom also stops audio playback.
22:03:47Paul_The_NerdIsh_nitti: Yes, it may be slightly out of date, but it should work.
22:03:57pekujaI'll have to read the manual I guess, but does the manual tell that plugins with sound stop any other audio playback?
22:04:03Ish_nittiso i guess ill grab rockbox-jbuild-20060523-ipodvideo.tar.gz, do i just untar over the existing files on my pod?
22:04:36Paul_The_Nerdpekuja: How would you hear sound if they don't? Though it probably doesn't say it explicitly, it seems like common sense to me. If you don't feel it is, file a correction to the patch tracker.
22:04:56Paul_The_NerdIsh_nitti: Put it on just like you did the you used before.
22:06:06pekujaPaul_The_Nerd, well, it might either not play the sound if something was playing, or ask the user if they want to stop the playback or whatever
22:06:19pekujabut, a quote from the manual:
22:06:31pekuja"Music will carry on playing whilst plugins are being run."
22:07:01Paul_The_NerdSo file a correction in the patch tracker if you think it needs to be changed.
22:07:07Paul_The_NerdAs I said before.

22:07:45Paul_The_NerdIt's the way it is because the person who wrote it was okay with it. It doesn't mean it's perfect. You think it needs to be adjusted, then do so.
22:09:40sharpei believe they also stop playback because they've to iram... not quite sure if i remember correctly.
22:09:55 Quit linuxstb (Connection timed out)

22:12:40pekujahm, I think I don't even have a jpeg viewer here. is it new?
22:13:00Paul_The_NerdIt's a viewer-style plugin
22:13:02Paul_The_NerdYou just click on jpegs
22:13:15Paul_The_NerdIt's been in since before H300 support was added
22:14:13linuxstb_sharpe: Yes, that's why pacbox stops playback - it needs IRAM and all the CPU in order to get realtime emulation. Other plugins may stop playback to get access to the extra memory, and others have sound themselves.
22:14:23pekujaPaul_The_Nerd, what's it called?
22:14:39sharpeScore! I get one right again.

22:19:24pekujaPaul_The_Nerd, ok
22:19:56pekujaPaul_The_Nerd, I still would not assume anyone to know what a "viewer" is though, since it's not at all important to know that if you just want to use them
22:20:27Paul_The_NerdYes, and?
22:20:28pekujaok, the fire plugin is a bastard, it makes my 64kbps cbr mp3 skip too

23:14:02sharpeeither copy the music to your ipod in a folder-like structure, or use tagcache
23:14:47redondosI would like to share the music between the Apple OS, iPodLinux and Rockbox. I'll see if tagcache lets me do that. Thank you.
23:15:08Ish_nittiI would put the music in the root folder.

23:20:36Paul_The_NerdCillian: Extract it preserving folders into .rockbox
23:20:43redondos"Commiting tagcache" -> yay
23:20:48Paul_The_NerdIt creates a folder named patchset (or patches) if I recall... in /.rockbox/
23:21:05Paul_The_NerdIt really only works halfway decent on the iRivers.
23:21:19redondosI still don't see where to browse my music from.
23:21:29Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: One of the parcel services here doesn't even deliver to my door. They drop it off at the apartment complex's office, and don't notify me, so I have to watch the tracking number.
23:21:31Ish_nittiadd a playlist
23:21:32Ish_nittithats what i did
23:21:43Ish_nittiit will create root.m3u
23:21:47Paul_The_Nerdredondos: It also tells you how to change the file view to ID3 database there.
23:21:48Cillianmidi seems to be working, but it's REALLY fast
23:21:55Paul_The_Nerdredondos: You need to read the whole page, as I said
23:21:56Cillianand lots of "Buffer miss"
23:22:01redondosPaul_The_Nerd: Sawrry :/
23:22:02Paul_The_NerdCillian: Ipod of some sort?
23:22:10Cillianyep, video
23:22:20amiconnPaul_The_Nerd: ugh...
23:22:25redondosSort of works :D
23:22:28Paul_The_NerdYeah, resampling issue for the double speed thing, slow processor for the buffer misses, if I understand.
23:22:38CillianOk, 2 secs
23:23:00Cillian"FINISHED PLAYING" and it seems to have locked up
23:23:09Paul_The_NerdWell that's lovely.
23:24:09CillianJust upped the cpu frequency
23:24:13Cillianlets see what that does
23:24:24Paul_The_NerdThe midi player should boost on its own
23:24:25CillianStill double speed and messed up buffer
23:24:40CillianOk, forget midi
23:24:43Paul_The_NerdThere should never be any cause to manually boost.
23:24:53amiconnThe only useful alternative here is DHL, which (1) also deliver Saturday and (2) if they cannot deliver, drop a note put the parcel at the nearest post office where you can pick it up.
23:25:05amiconn(during opening hours, of course, which also include Saturday)
23:25:12Paul_The_NerdMIDI seems to suffer from drive-by-itis, where someone fixes some aspect of it to suit their needs, then lets it sit until someone else drive-by-fixes something
23:25:22*linuxstb_ works from home so has no delivery problems...
23:25:29CillianThe buffers aren't too bad, anything I can do about the double speed?
23:25:41linuxstb_Fix the audio driver.
23:25:51amiconnFor companies, UPS & friends are ok...
23:25:56Bagderit is slightly annoying that the shipment from US to Sweden took no time, and now it'll take many days just to get them to give the package to me
23:26:30linuxstb_Cillian: IIUC, the problem is that the midi player plays back at 22.050KHz, but the ipod audio driver only supports 44.1KHz at the moment.
23:28:40 Join TCK [0] (
23:29:10Cillianwouldn't it be easier to port the midi program to 44.1?
23:29:43hardeepBagder: Do they offer you an option to pick it up yourself? That's what I do when my times don't match UPS's.
23:29:44linuxstb_The audio driver needs completing anyway.
23:30:09redondosDo themes for other devices work on an iPod nano?
23:30:17Bagderhardeep: I think they do, but I have yet to call them and get the details
23:30:19Paul_The_Nerdredondos: Nope, nothing else has the same size screen.
23:30:36sharpeups delivered my package to the wrong house the last time...
23:30:39redondosPaul_The_Nerd: All right, thanks.
23:30:40Ish_nittiyou could create your own nano theme
23:31:00Paul_The_NerdIsh_nitti: That's what I did! :)
23:31:03redondosWhen I'm viewing the ?now playing? screen, what's the fastest way of looking at the current playlist?
23:31:25Paul_The_Nerdredondos: Hold Select (not just tap), then choose that option from the list, if I recall
23:31:57Paul_The_Nerdsharpe: I almost always get my UPS packages 1 day early. With the exception of one that got delayed because of a hurricane.
23:32:08Paul_The_NerdIt was merely on time.

23:33:11dunnoany dev, what does brandom mean in the comments of this patch, , and what do i need to do to install it please
23:34:51linuxstb_dunno: You mean " WARNING: THIS PATCH CHANGES CONFIG_BLOCK_VERSION" ?
23:35:21dprodunno: it means patches will be sorted numerically ? and you should backup your config before using a firmware with this patch ?
23:35:28Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb_: The comment about it not updating settings I guess?

23:36:37dunnothe comments down in the comments box :-)
23:37:32dunnoShoot, I forgot to increase the used bits counter in the settings.c file. If this gets applied, do that too.
23:37:54dunnobrandons comments in the comments box for that patch
23:38:30linuxstb_I think he's just referring to the "current sum of bits" comment in the code. So as Brandon said, it's only important if the patch is committed to CVS. You can ignore it.
23:38:44dunnothank you

23:49:03redondosWhere can I get xobox from?
23:49:36redondosThe page on the wiki doesn't say ->
23:50:23Bagdergoogle says here:
23:50:58Paul_The_NerdI think that plugins shouldn't be included in the plugin index if they're not in CVS
23:51:07Paul_The_NerdMaybe a.. like... UnnoficialPluginIndex...
23:51:08redondosI see, ok, thanks.
23:51:10BagderI agree
