00:00:45Paul_The_NerdAnd what am I looking for there?
00:00:46amiconnIf it says Flash : M=BF D=D6 it's flashable
00:00:57Paul_The_NerdIt is flashable then. :)
00:00:58amiconnIf it shows question marks, it's not flashable

00:02:57Paul_The_NerdIt doesn't have the hiss I get on other players. At all.
00:03:26amiconnGuess why I said the UDA1380 (iriver dac) is noisy?
00:03:35sharpebecause it is?
00:04:23amiconnI rather think it's not the dac itself, but rather the headphone amp, and/or some messed up wiring
00:04:28 Join TCK [0] (
00:04:31linuxstbPaul_The_Nerd: Do you get a hiss on your Nano as well?
00:04:34Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: The line out is less noisy.
00:04:43Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb: Fainter than my irivers, but definitely yes.
00:04:51sharpewhat does this hiss sound like?
00:05:13Paul_The_NerdI'd say of the players I own, for hiss, the iRiver h120 headphone jack is the worst, then iFP-799, then Nano, then this Archos
00:05:39Paul_The_Nerdsharpe: Turn the volume down to about -50 or -60 and the music will be about the same loudness as the hiss on the H120. It's just a hiss. Like... ssssssssss........
00:05:54Paul_The_NerdOn the Nano it doesn't interfere with my music until about -70ish

00:06:32Paul_The_NerdIt also won't show up with all earphones.
00:06:38linuxstbsharpe: I can't hear any hiss on the 5g.
00:06:45sharpeneither can i.
00:06:52linuxstbBut the same headphones in my h140 deafen me...
00:07:00Paul_The_NerdFor example, I can't hear it at all with my stupid old Koss KTXPros
00:07:03linuxstb(I exaggerate slightly...)
00:07:10Paul_The_NerdWith my PX100s it's faint, but if I listen carefully I get it.
00:07:17Paul_The_NerdWith the CX300s I recently ended up with, it's *very* easy to hear.
00:07:31sharpei can't really speak for anything, i hear switching power supplies :\
00:08:07sharpeand tvs... and monitors...
00:08:24sharpeon an old mp3 player i had, i could tell when the backlight was on by listening.
00:08:29Paul_The_NerdOkay, well time for me to do this whole "class" thing

00:10:22sharpein the ipod bootloader, when it mentions that the ADC and button drivers are not yet implemented, does it mean, specifically for the bootloader, or for rockbox in general?
00:13:54linuxstbIt means that at the time the bootloader was written, they weren't implemented for the ipod.
00:14:06sharpethat's what i though...
00:14:12linuxstbNow they are written, but we don't use them anyway.
00:15:31sharpegah. though.
00:16:39sharpei'm going to have to move around some code to get the messages displayed in an accepted order...

00:18:22Ribsipod g5
00:18:27linuxstbFrom Windows?
00:18:43sharpelinuxstb: i won't, i just have to move it around so it will call ata_init(), disk_init() and disk_mount_all() before trying to load the settings, which i found out the hard way a while ago.

00:20:49RibsI only ask, as my iPod is about to die
00:21:00RibsI want to hand it back to the store with original firmware on it
00:21:05Ribsso they can't bullshit me
00:21:10tucozmarkun, why?
00:21:13markuntucoz: I make a SVG version of the logo
00:21:26markunCould do with some work still

00:22:57tucozpdflatex can not handle eps as far as I know
00:23:01linuxstbRibs: If you can't restore it from a Windows PC, the next best thing would be to write zeros to the disk - e.g. something like dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda count=500000
00:23:18linuxstbThat should wipe all traces of Rockbox...
00:23:24tucozIt can handle pdf though
00:23:54Ribslinuxstb: and it will restore orignial firmware from where...?
00:23:59Ribsdoes it have a store we can't access?
00:24:13 Join dpr0 [0] (
00:24:56linuxstbRibs: What do you mean? Apple have an "ipod restore" utility which you can run in Windows (or on a Mac) which contains copies of the firmware.
00:25:19RibsI see
00:25:40tucozlooks good
00:25:41Ribslinuxstb: I mean, if I zero out the iPod HD... will it be 'bricked' (useless, unable to boot) ?
00:26:09sharpeit's very hard to brick an ipod, short of hitting it with a brick.
00:26:12linuxstbRibs: Not "bricked", but unable to boot.
00:26:32linuxstbYou can still access the disk by forcing it into disk mode (hold SELECT+PLAY when booting).
00:26:38tucozmarkun, we could propably work out somehow to get that into the manual. I am not really sure how atm though.
00:26:49RibsI think I still have a window partition on here
00:26:52Ribsso I'll try that
00:26:55Ribsthanks for the advice, linuxstb

00:46:19pixelmathen that's better than mine :) but I knew that my program can't deal with eps very well
00:46:44linuxstbYes, I tried that as well... Have you tried the ".tex" export? It needs the PSTricks LaTeX extension and simple writes the postscript commands as tex commands...

01:10:19linuxstbI've got an "epstopdf" utility installed from somewhere - that does a nice job of converting inkscape's eps files to .pdf - a 21KB PDF for the logo.
01:11:13tucozme too. Just tried it
01:11:39tucozThat is probably the easiest way to go.
01:11:44hardeepamiconn: okay, the first problem you reported should be fixed. regarding the second, were you just referring to the fact that the playlist viewer shows the wrong current track (e.g. the ERRed one)?
01:12:34amiconnThat's fixable by leaving and re-entering the playlist viewer though
01:12:51hardeepyeah, just missing an update somewhere
01:13:37tucozmarkun, in case you read the logs: Seems like this is the way to go. Save the .svg as .eps -> epstopdf logo.eps

01:29:07preglowdo you run that?
01:29:28amiconnYes, since I am running unstable. The last upgrade brought gcc 4.1
01:29:44amiconnThere are already 2 build servers running 4.1
01:29:59preglowperhaps we should also use cross compilers of some specific version for sim builds?

02:49:36midkayamiconn, i wanted to ask - what is that chip for exactly?
02:49:43amiconnmidkay: USB on the go
02:49:57amiconnThe problem was indeed a really fundamental one
02:50:01midkayoh, *awesome*. not necessary at all, at least not to run by default..
02:50:13sharpewhich player is it on?
02:50:18midkaymakes some sense that it would suck a lot of battery too.. since it should not be on often..
02:50:54amiconnThe chip select used for this chip (/CS3) isn't implemented as a single chip select, but it's split into a separate read strobe and write strobe (/SRE and /SWE)
02:51:30amiconn...but /SRE can be programmed to be active on write, and hence behave as the 'full' chip select
02:51:59scorchesharpe: h3xx i believe
02:52:13amiconnWho would've thought that... the config bit for that is in IDECONFIG1 ... tsk tsk

02:53:22sharpewhat happens if we try to set the color of a 2bit lcd screen?
02:54:19amiconnmidkay: Yes, we do want to support usbotg one day, but if the chip is not in use, it should be put to sleep
02:54:47amiconnThe chip sucks power in the same order of magnitude as the CPU, thereby almost halving battery runtime on H300
02:55:11midkayamiconn, right, should certainly be disabled while it's not in use..
02:55:12amiconnI'd expect >19hours, but get 11 hours

03:31:51midkayyou little ungrateful quack. after all the help i gave you in Factions.
03:31:59sharpeyou didn't help me?
03:32:07sharpeschroeder: hello.
03:32:12schroederi have a (n00b) question :)
03:32:19scorchethen ask it =)
03:32:20midkayi just said i did. even if it was a lie.
03:32:22sharpeyou've got questions, we've got answers.
03:32:32midkaysharpe has no answers, that clueluess little.. quack.
03:32:33sharpeoops. i'm infringing on a copyright.
03:32:45schroederi just set up a devel environment using colinux
03:32:57schroederand successfully (well i hope) build the sources
03:32:59scorchesure this si a n00b question?
03:33:10schroederbut make zip doesnt worjk
03:33:18schroedern00b question: why?
03:33:27sharpedoes it give you any error?
03:33:40schroederxargs: zip: No such file or directory
03:33:59midkayyou're typing "make zip"? it needs to be in your builddir..
03:34:06schroederi am
03:34:10sharpemy guess, is zip either isn't in your path, or it isn't even in your environment.
03:35:19sharpedoes any other zip-like thing work? like, "make bzip2" ?
03:35:36schroedersame error (with according name)
03:35:40sharpemake tar ?
03:35:52midkayschroeder, quite honestly, i think the colinux setup is probably a bit weird, i don't think anyone uses it anymore. the vmware image is very quick + extremely easy, you might want to try it instead.
03:36:04schroederyep tar worked
03:36:08sharpemake tar...
03:36:11sharpeit's funny.

03:40:42schroederwell, now that i figured that one out, rb development should be a piece of cake

03:44:39midkayi .. i.. ass-umed that was some $$$-app
03:44:41midkayneed to reflash?
03:44:58midkayschroeder, it is, but there is a free player..

03:45:31midkaysharpe, i need to reflash my ipod with a new loader?
03:45:33midkayalright, i'll try it..
03:45:41sharpeit's not reflashing, but okay.
03:45:49sharpeyou want the source, or just the binary?

04:01:05midkaysharpe, what do you mean? we've always had our own bootloader. :)
04:01:16EbErTi'm having trouble w/ bootloader matter of fact
04:01:29sharpecustom as in, users can customize it
04:01:46EbErTi think its cuz i installed the one for ipod that natively boots to apple os
04:01:55sharpeuh huh
04:02:08sharpeand the problem?
04:02:14midkaysharpe, well then it's not rockbox that has its own custom bootloader, it's the users' that is custom. not that i think this will be accepted ;)
04:02:34EbErTi can't get it to go to the charge screen
04:02:49EbErTwhen plugged into the wall
04:02:51sharpedepends on your interpretation of how you read 'custom'
04:03:13midkayif you mean *customizable*, surel.
04:03:26sharpeEbErT: the bootloader doesn't handle the usb charging
04:03:27EbErTsupposed to press menu as it starts, right?
04:03:29midkaycustom implies that it has changed from standard, which it shouldn't by default.
04:03:37sharpemidkay: okay. you win.
04:03:55EbErTooh, i was charging via firewire before, that's right
04:03:58midkayyou say that like you're giving up.. e.g. you thought you could win. :)
04:04:22EbErTdurnit, and i gave away my firewire cable and adapter!!
04:05:00EbErTactually, sold it to my cousin. (and a 20g ipod)

04:06:02EbErTwill it charge and play through the wall with firewire?
04:06:05EbErTright :/
04:06:57EbErTi mean, u can't have wps screen on when its plugged into the wall

04:26:02sharpei should play guild wars sometime

04:26:27midkayi wanted a titan. or a jade armor.
04:26:34sharpeneed to finish that mission to become, "Weh no su" (?)
04:26:48Paul_The_NerdWhat does the titan do?
04:26:51Paul_The_NerdI got one...
04:27:03Paul_The_NerdI logged in randomly recently, and it was all "Here, have this!"
04:27:29sharpePaul, you've a nano, right?
04:27:40sharpeWish to test the customizable bootloader?
04:27:57Paul_The_NerdI have 0 interest in a customizable bootloader.
04:28:01midkayPaul_The_Nerd, ah, cool, you play?
04:28:09sharpeneeded to see if it works with nanos.
04:28:31midkayPaul_The_Nerd, a burning titan from the Ring of Fire areas.. love those. they're just little pet things, they don't really do anything. but some are worth much more. :)
04:28:32Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Not much. Got stuck at a mission where people kept abandoning it after catching the elite skill in it, and leaving me stuck, so I kinda lost my taste for jerks.
04:28:37schroederwhat does the customizable bl do?
04:28:48midkayPaul_The_Nerd, ah, that's too bad... want some help? bored-ish. :)

04:29:51Paul_The_NerdAnyone know if there are known issues regarding the line out on AJBRv1? Is there any reason other than "It's broken" why it wouldn't get sound output?

04:32:38midkayhaha. the horseman's actually sorta cool..
04:33:16Paul_The_NerdWell I just picked up factions, so I'll probably be playing that some after the move is a little more sorted out
04:33:58midkayPaul_The_Nerd, ah, awesome.. be glad to lend you a hand. been playing guild wars for like a year, factions i also got recently-ish (well, nearly a month ago).
04:34:16sharpei've had factions longer :) yet midkay's farther in it.
04:34:27midkayi've had the original for longer, loser. :)
04:34:41sharpei don't have the original. winner.
04:34:51midkayi win, sure.
04:35:00Paul_The_NerdI've had the original since before day 1, but I kinda got burnt out from getting to 19 in less than a week, then failing this mission a couple hundred times
04:35:24midkayPaul_The_Nerd, know what mission off-hand?
04:35:31Paul_The_NerdSome stupid one in the desert.
04:35:41sharpei believe i got factions a day or two after it came out, i didn't know it until i read the release date...
04:35:41Paul_The_NerdThere's a snake with an Elite skill that people always want to catch.
04:35:44midkayah, a couple of those are a little tricky..
04:35:49midkayhaha. :\
04:35:51Paul_The_NerdThe mission isn't particularly bad
04:36:01Paul_The_NerdUnless half your party quits as soon as they get the skill
04:36:13Paul_The_NerdAnd the AI are just stupid on it for some reason. They run off in some odd direction and pull EVERYTHING

04:37:37Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Yeah, my friends didn't start playing 'till after I was burnt out. Actually, I've found the AI to be more reliable than humans in most cases.
04:37:44Paul_The_NerdBut then, when I was playing Humans were Stupid.
04:38:06Paul_The_NerdIt'd usually take a full team to take down my PVP character. I'm sure it's actually competitive now, and I suck by modern comparison.
04:38:26midkayhaha. when you've played with a good/experienced/smart group your view on the AI may change a bit. :)
04:38:48midkayi was burnt out on it for a while, yeah.. factions changed that, though.
04:39:47midkayi bet the one you had trouble with was thirsy river (if that's the name for the one i'm thinking of)..
04:39:53midkaywhere you fought larger and larger groups of guys, right?

04:49:21midkaythe other "tricky" one of the three, compared to the other..
04:49:41Paul_The_NerdThe only thing "tricky" about it was when the AI wandered off and brought a whole branch down on you at once.

04:50:14*midkay nods..
04:50:32*scorche hates it when g/fs have that special time of the month

05:16:33scorcheok...i really give up now
05:16:47Paul_The_Nerdhardeep: I just put 2650 batteries into it. :)
05:16:50scorchehardeep: not on VBR i have noticed
05:17:17Paul_The_NerdAfter prying the cold, lifeless, terrifying original green batteries from it.
05:17:28scorcheit accesses about every 5 sec or so
05:17:48hardeepscorche: hmmm, that doesn't sound right
05:18:02scorchewell....i do have an older build on atm
05:18:12hardeepdo you have your # of files in playlist/directory settings set to a really high value?
05:18:29scorcheif i go view the audio thread, it is set at about 7/8
05:19:09scorcheyes...but i have a crap load of music as well
05:19:43hardeepscorche: that just means you need to have it organized better =) i have ~5000 tracks on my player and stick with defaults for both
05:19:52hardeepcould probably reduce it in fact
05:20:28Paul_The_NerdI'm tempted to go ahead 'n flash it. I assume that'll drastically reduce boot time?
05:20:35scorchewell, lemme get a newer build, and lower the limits, and get back to you
05:20:57hardeepPaul_The_Nerd: yes, significantly
05:21:53Paul_The_NerdI'm tempted to wait until WAV playback is in the core.

05:22:09midkayto flash?
05:22:32hardeepi agree with midkay, you should go ahead and do it...
05:22:33Paul_The_NerdDon't really _need_ to flash, as it's hardly going to be my primary use player.
05:22:35hardeepit's very safe
05:22:50midkayquite safe, simple.. nothing will change when WAV playback is integrated..
05:23:08Paul_The_NerdI'd have to reflash when WAV is integrated though, right?
05:23:14midkayno, no..
05:23:22midkayreflashing after the first time is.. entirely safe.
05:23:29midkaythen you get an iPod-like safety bootloader..
05:23:34midkayand just reflash a smaller portion.
05:23:36Paul_The_NerdWell, reflashing the first time should be pretty damn safe too, shouldn't it?
05:24:01midkayyeah, not entirely impossible to screw up, but it's impossible to screw up after the first time.. :)
05:24:05hardeepvery, haven't heard of anyone bricking in over 4 years
05:24:09midkayi don't think we've had a legit case of screwup, have we?
05:24:20Paul_The_NerdI think thought that I'll wait until I have a power adapter I'm sure I can rely on at least
05:24:21midkayone guy screwed his box by flashing with another model or something..
05:24:35midkayon purpose, no less.
05:25:18midkayif your batteries are > ~50%, it's fine, but of course your decision
05:25:50midkaythe first flash is scary, i've had to do it a couple times.. but after that it's very "aahhh" :)
05:25:54Paul_The_NerdPoint me to instructions then.
05:26:01midkay2sec startup or so :)
05:26:21Paul_The_NerdIt's technically not my player. And I *might* have to return it someday
05:26:24Paul_The_NerdOr my brother could forget I have it.

05:26:27midkayhere we go..
05:26:44midkaylet's hope the latter :)
05:27:11midkaybut by now the procedure is very safe, lots of checks for integrity and stuff..
05:27:37Paul_The_NerdHe hasn't used his device in *years* so he'll probably forget if I don't remind him
05:27:45hardeepeven a blind man can do it, literally:
05:29:59Paul_The_NerdDo I download one of the flash content files from that page, or are newer ones available somewhere?
05:30:28midkayyou can compile them i believe, but they aren't in daily builds..
05:30:30midkayso those should be latest.
05:34:51Paul_The_NerdRombox is too big. :(
05:35:52Paul_The_NerdSo it tells me.
05:35:53midkaydid you get one from the daily builds?
05:36:11midkaythat's weird, it was sized down recently..
05:36:30midkayrockbox.ucl it is.. :\
05:36:36midkaynot a very large difference anyways.
05:37:03Paul_The_NerdCan I remove ajbrec.whatever?
05:37:21Paul_The_NerdI thought so.
05:38:04Paul_The_NerdOkay, all flashed and happy
05:38:56Paul_The_NerdThe battery charging screen is odd...
05:38:58Paul_The_NerdIt says 8%
05:39:10Paul_The_NerdIs that remaining or something?
05:39:29midkaymm, no.. give it a moment perhaps..
05:40:02Paul_The_NerdI think it's a side-effect of my new charger or something...
05:40:24midkaypossibly.. yeah..

10:43:13linuxstbIt's for boot-time allocation of memory.

11:00:44linuxstbJdGordon: You possibly want to add it to the mp3entry struct (firmware/export/id3.h) - that's the main struct used by the playback.c code. But the decision will be to have one of those structs per file, or one per sub-track. My feeling is that one per file could be the way to go (a lot of the fields will be the same for all sub-tracks), but I haven't really thought about it.
11:01:01amiconn(2) GPIO39 _out_ and GPIO38 _out_
11:01:03LinusNamiconn: i traced that once upon a time, but i lost my notes. i'll do it again
11:01:12amiconn(the corresponding _in_ signals are known
11:01:23LinusN39 out is mclk1, probably set to low output for the same reasons as 63
11:01:59amiconn(3) GPIO26
11:02:13LinusN26 goes to an unmounted resistor, r26
11:02:22LinusNi didn't find out where it went
11:03:31amiconnThe iriver firmware sets all mentioned pins to GPIO out
11:04:34LinusNi'll try again to find 53 and 26

11:12:03tucozok. when you are finished, you can commit it yourself if you want. Just save it as an .eps (e.g. with inkscape) and run the epstopdf command

11:13:32markunIt has a lot of redundant points and round corners which should not be round

13:00:57preglowso perhaps we'll exceed iriver runtimes also on h3x0
13:00:59preglowthat'd rock
13:01:21B4gderit would
13:02:11preglowamiconn: you did find that the cpu was cooler with rockbox than retail, yes?
13:02:47preglowi wonder if this problem is also what makes some ipods have sucky runtime
13:03:24amiconnYes, the CPU was a tiny bit cooler under rockbox than under retail
13:03:37preglowi wonder how they manage it
13:03:41preglowwith their kickass mp3 decoder
13:03:48amiconnNot very significant because it was ony ~1 C
13:04:13amiconn..but still somehow expected since we also exceed iriver runtime claims on H1x0
13:04:52amiconnI'd guess iriver doesn't use sleep mode when there's nothing to do for the CPU
13:05:08preglowand i'd guess sleep mode doesn't trigger very often during playback in rockbox anyway
13:05:12amiconnIt wouldn't surprise me at all.
13:05:42amiconnArchos did the same stupid thing, leading to the Ondio having significantly less runtime than they promised
13:05:57amiconnRockbox actually fulfills archos' promise
13:08:30amiconnpreglow: Our mp3 decoder is quite efficient now. I'd expect sleep mode to trigger every now and then
13:08:47tucozis the h3x0 power issues the only real showstopper that is left?
13:09:06preglowstill a number of bugs left
13:09:07tucozsort of?
13:09:13preglowand i think voice ui is really flakey
13:09:22tucozah, voice yes.
13:09:27amiconnPlayback still has numerous bugs
13:09:53amiconnJust encountered one of them this morning
13:10:09FebsIt's a shame that Brandon hasn't been able to spend much time on RB recently. But, RealLife happens.
13:10:24preglowdoes indeed
13:10:24amiconnPlayback just didn't start, counter stayed at 0:00
13:10:27tucozok. rockbox should hire lostlogic and slasheri as consultants of the playback system and run a course through the maze of mysteries in that department
13:10:34amiconnStop/Resume didn't help. Reboot did
13:10:49tucozamiconn: is that in general, or only on a specific target?
13:10:55amiconnThat was H140
13:10:57preglowsounds general
13:11:13tucozi guess it is
13:11:16FebsI ran into a bug yesterday on ipod where the remaining time was shown as: -3:-27. But I couldn't reproduce it.
13:11:41amiconnVoice often stops working when playback is stopped
13:11:41preglowi've had that too
13:11:56preglowi got it using an mp3 file with an erronous xing header
13:12:09preglowamiconn: does voice work at all when playback is stopped?
13:12:17preglowahh, no, i'm thinking about paused
13:12:51peturthe -3:-27 is caused by some oversimplified formatting

15:47:09Shado23Hi, I need some purchasing advice. I'm looking into buying an iriver, should I get a H320 or a H120 (With rockbox in mind)?
15:48:26muesli|delhii had an 120, 140 and finally an 320
15:48:42muesli|delhithe 140 is the beste choice
15:48:47muesli|delhifor me
15:48:58Shado23I can't decide, because I'd like a colour display, but the design of the H100 series looks better to me
15:49:10preglowShado23: do you care about the colour screen? care about spdif?
15:49:28preglowright now the h1x0 performs best with rockbox, but that might change very soon
15:49:29muesli|delhithe 140 is more handy
15:49:29Shado23I won't be needing that much space I guess, otherwise it,s the same as the H120, right?
15:49:42peturh3x0 has usbotg
15:49:47muesli|delhiusb 1.0
15:49:51muesli|delhiuseless imho
15:49:51peturh1x0 has spdif
15:50:11Shado23the H120 only has usb 1.0?
15:50:18muesli|delhithe 320 gets pretty thick with a case
15:50:28peturbetter 12mbps than 0mbps
15:50:42muesli|delhino...ustotg has usb v1.0
15:50:51Shado23ok won@t be needing that
15:51:06muesli|delhiits nice but useless with v1.0..
15:51:17Shado23and colour display is not essential, but would be nice to have
15:51:22muesli|delhiactually the h320 gets quite fat with a case
15:51:35muesli|delhiwhereas the h140 remains kind of neat
15:51:43Shado23mz main problem is the buttons on the 320 look weird, at least on the pictures i've seen
15:52:15Shado23but how is it different from the H120 except from the diskspace?
15:52:24muesli|delhibuttons are definitely better on h140 also
15:52:31muesli|delhithe joystcik is fantastic
15:52:50amiconnmuesli|delhi: Wrong... usbotg is always usb2.0, because it's not defined for older protocol versions
15:53:01amiconnThis has nothing to do with the transfer speed
15:53:24muesli|delhiamiconn whatever..its useless slow on h320
15:53:34muesli|delhi15mins for 256mb...
15:53:37*amiconn found it to be rather useful
15:53:44*petur too
15:53:48 Quit B4gder ("time to say moo")
15:53:54muesli|delhinot usuable as an image tank (for my use)
15:53:58Shado23the H10 series won't be supported all of a sudden, right?
15:54:03amiconnI used it as a backup for my digicam on my trip to Torino
15:54:38muesli|delhiwell..i have a 4gb drive...
15:54:42muesli|delhithat would take ages
15:54:55amiconnThe most annoying thing wasn't the speed, but the inability of retailos to sync folders
15:55:17Shado23so I'll probably get a H120, as it seems to be identical to the H140 and I don@t need the space
15:55:41muesli|delhithe h120 was my very favourite...

17:48:36Paul_The_NerdYeah, I plan to pick one up somewhere this afternoon.
17:49:14amiconnYou need one that's capable of providing at least 500mA. The original is specced 600mA
17:49:30Paul_The_NerdYeah, all I've got around is a 300mA one.
17:49:48amiconnThe plug is center positive. Switching polarity will blow the charging circuit
17:50:25Paul_The_NerdI'm very careful about that one. :)
17:50:34amiconn(Not as evil as on iriver, where it will most likely fry the CPU, but still not recommendet)
17:51:11Paul_The_NerdI'm definitely excited that the unit itself seems to be in near-perfect condition, and that everything that was an issue are just easily replaceable stuff.
17:51:50amiconnYeah, that's the nice thing about the old archoses. Standard batteries, standard harddrives...
17:52:27amiconn...and you can get longer runitme than H1x0 with today's high capacity NiMH cells
17:52:56Paul_The_NerdI replaced the old ones with 2650's.

19:20:05tucozbluebrother: I read that the next version of xpdf will support anti-aliasing of vector graphics.
19:20:49tucozand xpdf is a backend for kpdf
19:21:03bluebrothertucoz, I'm wondering why evince has anti-aliasing and kpdf not −− they are both based on xpdf AFAIK.
19:21:11tucozI see
19:21:28bluebrotherbut if it's only a display issue I think we can live with it.
19:21:37markunbluebrother: evince is uses poppler
19:22:07tucozthe wikipedia article on poppler says that kpdf also uses that
19:22:11Mikachui wouldn't be surprised if most people didn't print out the manual
19:22:20bluebrotheryes, but IIRC poppler is also based on xpdf. But it seems I'm wrong in my memory here.
19:22:20Mikachuin gentoo, xpdf uses poppler :)
19:22:26tucozbut the xpdf article states that xpdf is used
19:22:32tucozin kpdf
19:22:44tucozbluebrother: you are right.
19:22:52tucozpoppler is based on xpdf
19:22:57crwlkpdf did use xpdf, but it changed maybe at kde 3.3 or .4
19:23:28 Join damaki_ [0] (
19:23:35bluebrotherhmm, what does kpdf use now?
19:23:37markungpdf uses ghostscript I believe
19:24:15tucozbluebrother: the poppler article states poppler. the xpdf article states xpdf. So, I dunno
19:24:34tucozand the kpdf article states xpdf
19:24:36 Part Paul_The_Nerd
19:25:11bluebrotherhehe, poppler is named after Futurama :)
19:25:13tucozthe kpdf front page says xpdf, so I guess that is right :)
19:25:34crwlat least kpdf's output quality changed quite noticeably in some KDE update

19:30:05Ish_nittihello everyone :)
19:30:17Ish_nittistill very satisfied with my rockbox
19:30:53Ish_nittihave another noob question, saw someone that was posting about new patch builds. one for "Video IPOD" and one for "Video IPOD 64mb"
19:31:07Ish_nittiwhats the difference and how do i know which one i own?
19:31:28bluebrotherthe difference is the ram size of your player.
19:31:46Ish_nittithats what i thought, but i didnt want to jump to conclusions
19:31:47bluebrotherhaving more memory allows you to preload more music.
19:32:11Ish_nittihow would i know if my video ipod is 64mb or not?
19:32:28bluebrotherI don't know.
19:32:44bluebrotherisn't that described on the page with the experimental builds?
19:32:54obo30Gb models are 32Mb, 60s have 64
19:32:57kerbIsh_nitti: 30gb = 32. 60gb = 64
19:34:09Ish_nittithank you guys

20:50:25hardeepis there any reason we disable the debug menu on simulator? a lot of the information is hardware independant (e.g. swcodec audio info)
20:51:23preglowi think safetydan made a patch for sim debug
20:51:46preglowi think it's mainly left out because of a general lack of SIMULATOR define checks, heh

20:52:39Betowhich one should i install first? ipodlinux or rockbox?

22:10:04preglowMikachu: not a lot of alternatives
22:10:05hardeepi'd like to see the pcm/playback thread do more every time it's active
22:10:15hardeepaccording to lostlogic, it only retrieves one frame
22:10:32Mikachuyeah, unless someone wants to write a scheduler (not me) :)
22:10:50preglowMikachu: i've been toying with the idea myself, but i'm not convinced it'll lead to easier coding
22:11:14preglowand it'll not be an easy transition
22:11:34preglowfor instance, arm will have to start running at a lower priority
22:12:43amiconnyield() has _very_ little overhead
22:13:08preglowthe cache collision overhead is probably bigger then the yield mechanism itself
22:13:19dionoeaok, 03 indeed doesn't help *at all*
22:14:02amiconnOn archos, it does usually come out at ~600 yield rounds per second (meaning 600 cycles through _all_ threads!)
22:14:40Mikachuis there hlt or something like that on arm that you would want to call?
22:14:49preglowyou mean sleep cpu?
22:14:52preglowi already did that
22:14:55Mikachuah heh
22:15:12preglowarm has no sleep, but portalplayer has
22:15:17Mikachuif everything just keeps yielding, how do you know when to sleep?
22:15:29preglowif sleep count == thread count
22:15:48preglowas soon as one thread awakes, the sleep count is reset and you go around again
22:16:15preglowi've been toying around with a sleep time variable for each thread to avoid having to yield if unnecessary
22:16:17amiconnMikachu: sleep() does increment num_sleepers, then yields
22:16:25preglowbut i don't know if it'll do much at all
22:16:39preglows/yield/switch context/
22:16:55amiconnIf num_sleepers == num_threads, the scheduler calls halt (or the respective CPU's halt equivalent)
22:17:49amiconnThe next interrupt will wake it up again. If no thread sleep times out, the scheduler will just do one round, and put the CPU to sleep again
22:19:22 Join EbErT [0] (
22:20:26preglowamiconn: but do you think adding a wakeup_tick variable to the context struct to avoid waking up threads unnecessarily would save us anything noticable at all?
22:20:30puslingif I want to buy a rockbox, what hardware should I go for ?
22:20:47amiconnpreglow: nope
22:20:52preglowpusling: what do you want? flash/hd? do you use anything other than mp3? colour lcd? spdif?
22:21:30amiconnpreglow: Imho it would only make the scheduler more complex, ans slower
22:21:44amiconnsleep() already takes care of the sleep timeout

22:22:56preglowamiconn: why slower? it would do exactly what sleep() does now, but save us a context switch per thread

22:42:39Mikachuif you want it done faster, send huge amounts of money to amiconn

22:43:50mongey:D all i got
22:43:52Paul_The_NerdSeriously, there will be a commit in the changelog that will surely say something either about the H300 power issue, or the ISP1362 chip.
22:44:04Paul_The_NerdAll you have to do is check the front page, and you'll know when it's done.
22:44:39*mongey still hasnt got cygwin working

22:56:13Aghasterit lags a bit, but its bearable
22:56:22dionoeastar is fun too (the ball is a little bit too slow)
22:56:36Aghasterhave you tried the fire plugin?

22:57:08Mikachui don't see the ball move in the star plugin
22:57:08Aghastertrue? nice lol
22:57:12Mikachuit just jumps

22:57:43dionoeahum ...weird, it seemed to work fine in the sim
22:57:44Paul_The_Nerdmongey: Have you just done some google research on that. It's a Cygwin problem, not a Rockbox one so you should really at this point be following their avenues of support.

22:59:28AghasterWhy not use linux then? it would be so easy...
22:59:45dionoeahum, the nano lcd driver must be better than the video's :)
22:59:53dionoeai maybe shouldn't have changed the timer :)
22:59:57Paul_The_NerdThe Video's is slow because it has the broadcom chip
23:00:12Paul_The_NerdThe Nano's is fastest of the color targets because the screen is also smaller.
23:00:16AghasterAm i the only one to experience random freezes?

23:02:40Paul_The_NerdWell, two problems with that statement. The first of which is that "Threads" implies multiple links.

23:02:52Paul_The_NerdThe second is, I don't know where they are offhand, and you can search as quickly as I can. ;)
23:03:06Paul_The_NerdAs it is, the only current solution is creating a build without CPU scaling enabled.
