#rockbox log for 2006-06-15

00:00:05Paul_The_NerdLandry Breuil
00:00:19*amiconn wonders why the HC doesn't want to go to sleep, and the DC seems to be only half-sleeping :/
00:00:27tongasok tongas will be ok
00:00:44peturamiconn: how do you check?
00:00:47Paul_The_NerdFreenode is its own thing, and many names are taken.
00:00:48tongassorry to pollute a little your discussion, amiconn
00:00:54tongasi'm discovering IRC
00:01:35amiconnpetur: GPIO22 (D_SUSPEND) is supposed to go high when the DC is suspended
00:01:54amiconn(I switch it to input, and it has a pullup)
00:01:55peturso what's half-sleeping then?
00:02:30amiconnHowever, it doesn't go high unless I set a bit that ignores H_SUSPEND and D_SUSPEND and always sets them high
00:02:52amiconn..but the DC registers are inaccessible after the sleep sequence, so the thing should be sleeping....
00:03:16amiconnMompls, of course, an access will prepare it for wakeup
00:03:19tongaslast q: how do i introduce the name of the person i want to point my post to, at the beginning of the sentence ?
00:03:34 Join rotator [0] (n=e@rockbox/developer/rotator)
00:03:44amiconn...but not actually wake it up if not unlocked within 5ms
00:03:49amiconnSo the DC sleep should be ok
00:05:50tongasby pointing the name with the mouse ?
00:05:57Paul_The_Nerdtongas: In many clients, start typing the name and then hit tab after a few letters.

00:25:06goffathat's what i mean
00:25:16Bagdergoffa: for what player
00:25:24goffawell h140...
00:25:25amiconnWin98 needs drivers for USB MSD
00:25:43goffaamiconn: does one exist?
00:26:07goffacan you just use iriver's?

00:28:46Bagdergoffa: again, it doesn't matter if he uses rockbox or the original fw
00:28:47preglowgoffa: should be entirely possible, but will very probably need a driver
00:29:00preglowbut that driver will be very generic
00:29:07preglowand downloadable straight from microsoft
00:29:09goffaok.. yeah.. that's all i'd need
00:29:32goffaand win98se 2nd party service pack would probably work
00:29:33amiconnpreglow: Afaik there are no generic UMS drivers for 98 available
00:29:37preglowamiconn: oh?
00:29:49amiconn..definitely not from MS
00:29:52preglowthen disregard whatever i was saying
00:30:09preglowi haven't used win98, the lord be thanked, for at least 5 years
00:30:20goffai run into it all the time

00:30:57preglowtongas: most irc clients allow you to log realtime, however, there's not much point, since all logs are at
00:30:58*amiconn wonders who actually still uses Win98 for serious purposes
00:31:11Paul_The_NerdYou need at least Win98SE for USB MSD, right?
00:31:37tongaspreglow: yes, but not easy to read...
00:31:37preglowamiconn: it's still a somewhat decent os for nice audio performance
00:31:41Paul_The_NerdSo it kinda depends which edition of Win98 this person has.
00:31:56preglowamiconn: crashes as soon as you sneeze, of course, but allows _really_ low latencies, sometimes even with crap drivers
00:31:58amiconnYou can update win98 to win98se
00:32:35goffayeah.. well i'm assuming se
00:32:36*amiconn wonders where this audio latency problem could be important
00:32:43preglowamiconn: realtime processing
00:32:53goffabut... people around here are cheap
00:32:53***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
00:33:16preglowin software synthesis and effects processing it's very important
00:33:16goffathey paid $3000 for their 98 box... so they assume that a new computer is going to be $3000 and isn't going to be any faster

00:53:45Paul_The_NerdI'm kinda surprised they sent you two different capacity players. I would've expected them all to be 2gb models.
00:53:51preglowPaul_The_Nerd: really? i was expecting pretty much what we got, heh
00:54:04preglowperhaps that doesn't bode well for me

01:07:03Paul_The_NerdWhile some player manufacturers are nervous about third-party firmware, others such as Sandisk are already moving to support them, and with PortalPlayer support in Rockbox, the PortalPlayer SoCs will look even more favourable to those manufacturers who see this trend starting.

01:10:25amiconnI mean battery percentage and battery symbol; numeric volume and volume icon
01:10:38peturmaybe a bit late, but I'd rather have song title in the middle as well, not the genre
01:10:53Genre9mp3amiconn: Oh
01:10:53preglowi still don't like the battery percentage being displayed where it is
01:11:09tucozpetur: I think that is fixed in the proper version
01:11:16hardeepyeah, it is
01:11:16tucozthat should be committed
01:11:18preglowif it should be displayed at all (which i think it shouldn't), it should be close to the graphical battery display
01:11:43hardeepi personally like the numeric values for battery and volume
01:11:46*petur probably runs an old version (several versions ago)
01:11:49Genre9mp3preglow: I made it this way for symmetry reasons
01:11:55XavierGryes I agree with hardeep.
01:12:07XavierGrIcons to be sleak and numbers to be precise
01:12:10hardeepXavierGr/Genre9mp3: please confirm it's the correct version now
01:12:12XavierGrsleek that is
01:12:44hardeepafk for a bit
01:13:05amiconnHmm, I definitely like the white version better than the blueish one
01:13:28tucozbut the white is less rockboxish
01:14:33preglowi don't really think the current rockbox colours should be mandatory in any way...
01:14:45Genre9mp3hardeep: I'm checking right now...
01:15:01tucozI think they should. For a default theme at least.
01:15:50preglowwhere'd those colours come from anyway? the web site?

01:16:16 Join Hames [0] (
01:16:18Genre9mp3preglow: Tes the light blue of the web site
01:16:24Hameswhere can i find the iPod Updater?
01:16:25tucozheaven knows. My girlfriend hates "that blue screen" :)
01:16:37Hameswhen im trying to install rockbox it says i need the firmware and some file on the bak folder
01:16:39preglowi don't think it's the nicest colour ever myself
01:16:40Hamesi dont know where to get that file
01:16:55preglowit's pretty arbitrarily chosen, i'd guess, so let graphic designers just come up with what they want
01:17:03preglowperhaps someone will come up with a better scheme
01:17:38preglowthe ipod updater is on the apple site
01:17:41tucozsure. but a the current colour theme is pretty much part of the rockbox graphic profile
01:18:21Paul_The_NerdHames: Which installation instructions are you following?
01:18:24Hamesbut it says to put it on the bak folder, i dont want to actually update it
01:18:31HamesRockbox Installer v7.7
01:18:42preglowif we are to have a graphic profile, i'd like it better if it was something better thought out than just whatever colour scheme we used on our web site at one time
01:18:46Paul_The_NerdOkay, see, that's not official in the slightest, so ask wherever you found the installer.
01:19:02Hamesthis installer is simple though
01:19:09Hamesit asks me if i already have ipod linux
01:19:11Hamesand other stuff
01:19:23HamesIpod Linux users:
01:19:23HamesIf you are using iPod Linux, you must first extract an unmodified firmware image from the Apple iPod Update Utility.
01:19:23DBUGEnqueued KICK Hames
01:19:23HamesFor this I recommend you download the iPod Wizard program (
01:19:23HamesExtract it, open the last updater you used on your iPod, click on the "Updater" tab, and extract the appropriate
01:19:25Hamesfirmware binary for your iPod to the "bak" folder of this installer.
01:19:27Genre9mp3Speaking of colours, we can have the white version and other colour variations as well in the site for download...
01:19:36Hames"open the last updater you used on your ipo" <−−how do i do that
01:19:45Paul_The_NerdHames: Simple or not, it's not one of our softwares, so ask whoever made the installer.
01:20:13Hamesbut the instructions are the same as yours for ipod linux users
01:20:33Paul_The_NerdYou're using a program.
01:20:34preglowtucoz: sure, i just don't think we should elect a blue variation the default one just becuase it somehow being the "rockbox coloured" one. we should choose whatever looks best
01:20:48earHertzhardeep: calling gui_synspalsh from get_button freezes teh ipod
01:20:52preglowthat of course being subjective...
01:21:19Paul_The_NerdHames: The "installer" was not written by us. What does it matter if the program works the same way for installing Linux and Rockbox. Ask who wrote the program, not who wrote what it installs.
01:21:29preglowearHertz: get_button?
01:21:33Paul_The_NerdHames: Do you ask a musician why a CD Ripper doesn't work, or the person who wrote the CD Ripper?
01:21:34preglowearHertz: nothing is called that
01:21:52earHertzdorry, I'm a C++ programmer :)
01:21:52Hamesif the instructions are the same then yes.
01:22:08Paul_The_NerdHames: The same as what?
01:22:18Hamesas your version of the installer
01:22:23Paul_The_NerdWe do not HAVE an installer
01:22:31Hamesthen how do you put rockbox in there?
01:22:31Paul_The_NerdIt's their other version of the installer
01:22:44Hamesdont you guys have it so you have to compile your own with 3 files or something.
01:23:10Hamesyea thats the one
01:23:28Paul_The_NerdSo what installer are you asking about?
01:23:30tucozpreglow: i agree with you, although i think the default theme should look rockboxish. and without the colours, icatcher doesn't (imo).
01:23:35Paul_The_NerdBecause the only programs there are ipod_fw and ipodpatcher
01:23:37XavierGrwhy bleeding edge isn't updated?
01:23:42Hamesboth say if you have ipod linux, go to ipodwizard..blabla bla...
01:24:00preglowtucoz: of course it doesn't, it's not light blue, which i don't think is very important at all :)
01:24:06Paul_The_NerdHames: They don't say the exact same thing.
01:24:11tucozprobably nothing in that commit triggered a cvs to build
01:24:11Hamesi dont know how to extract the firmware image
01:24:14Hamesdo you knw how?
01:24:24Paul_The_NerdHames: If you follow the directions explicitly, it happens.
01:24:24Hamesusing ipodwizard
01:24:33Paul_The_NerdHames: You may notice it says that the ipodwizard was is an alternative
01:24:43Paul_The_NerdAt least at our page. how else would i get the firmware?
01:25:04Paul_The_NerdFollow our instructions.
01:25:16Paul_The_NerdEVERY step tells you exactly what to type there.
01:25:16Hames.2) (iPodLinux users only) Extract an unmodified firmware image
01:25:24Hamesaccording to your instructions, it tells me to do it that way.
01:25:29Hamesthats theo nly other way i see for ipod linux users
01:25:49tucozpreglow: you win ;)
01:25:59Paul_The_NerdYes, then you use iPodWizard
01:26:01Paul_The_NerdWhich isn't our software
01:26:10Paul_The_NerdSo if you can't figure out iPodWizard, go read its instructions.
01:26:13tucozi am too tired to come up with good arguments
01:26:22tucoz...for the rockbox colours
01:26:34XavierGrthe bleeding edge is clearly an old one.
01:26:50Paul_The_NerdHames: Why don't we start again. What *exactly* can't you figure out?
01:27:03tucozXavierGr: I do not think that a wps commit will trigger the build server to start building
01:27:09tucoznot sure though
01:27:17Hameshow to get the firmware
01:27:24XavierGrthen maybe I told hardeep something wrong... :(
01:27:30Paul_The_NerdHames: That's a very vague part.
01:27:37XavierGrI will update via vmware and build a full zip then
01:27:50Paul_The_NerdHames: You know to use iPodWizard. So, have you tried iPodWizard with an official ipod firmware update?
01:27:50Hameshow to get the firmware so i can load it in order to install rockbox
01:28:09 Quit thegeek (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
01:28:14Paul_The_NerdOkay, so the instructions tell you to do that.

01:28:40Hamesthanks for help
01:28:49Paul_The_NerdHames: The page says "extract an unmodified firmware image from the Apple iPod Update utility using the iPod Wizard program"
01:29:11Paul_The_NerdI would suggest trying what the page says *before* you ask for help, as sometimes it actually works.

08:23:19sharpegood day.
08:23:33leftrightis there any way that the white noise (hiss) could be supressed when there is no music playing, on the H1xx series, i have a ihp140/UE10's and the hiss has become noticeable, not very irritating yet, so was wondering if you guys could somehow weave some magic in the code.
08:24:47aliaskI believe that the noise comes from the chips themselves, and perhaps small electronic interference on the board. I think it will be difficult, if not impossible to get rid of.
08:25:44leftrightI dont notice it when musics paying, only when there's no playback, so was wondering if some magic coding would suprees it when there is no playback
08:26:02sharpeplay a recorded track of nothing?
08:26:55leftrightlike perhaps muting the output if htere's no playback ?, just a suggestion
08:26:56aliaskIt's just that the actual noise of the music drowns it out. I suppose it might be possible to uninitialise the audio chip when nothing is playing, but I don't really know how viable that would be.

10:59:49merbanandoes players with tms cpu's have lesser chance of porting coz the lack of a proper tool chain ?
11:01:22JdGordonit prob has 0 chance of a port without a proper toolchain..
11:01:35merbananI'm thinking of the creative range of players
11:02:15LinusNmerbanan: the arm core is simple
11:02:28LinusNmerbanan: the dsp core is worse, but there is a gnu asm port
11:03:20LinusNso, we can develop code for the dm series, but we can not write dsp code in c
11:03:47LinusNalso, we have no knowledge about the onboard peripherals
11:04:11LinusNsince texas instrument don't believe in sharing information

11:48:33ashridahhm. i'm afraid to say this program may not recover the data that i don't have backups for :S
11:50:51LinusNmaybe you should try to reconstruct the boot sector first
11:51:07LinusNuse a sector editor and look for the boot sector copy

13:46:35B4gderperhaps the sansas don't use the 5024
13:47:12B4gder"Can you tell us how much of your business in Q1 was non-Apple?"
13:47:22B4gder"Apple as I said was more than 95% of our revenue, so the rest was non-Apple."
13:47:32crashdB4gder: how do you upgrade the sansas?
13:47:55preglowB4gder: hahah
13:47:58B4gderyou run an exe that puts files in the player's filesystem root
13:48:02preglowB4gder: sounds like they're in for a nice future
13:48:06crashdah, and they upgrade from there
13:48:13crashddo you know what they are called, the upgrade files?
13:48:18peturB4gder: you still haven't opened it up? tsk tsk tsk
13:48:20preglowB4gder: you know how the upgrade procedure is, btw? anything get flashed?
13:48:21crashdor, do you fancy sending me them ;)
13:48:31B4gdercrashd: reload by sansa page for some detals
13:48:38crashdahh cool
13:48:48crashdhmm, isnt in my lastlog, what's the url?
13:48:53B4gderpreglow: I think it flashes the lot
13:49:39crashdheh, obviously using the portalplayer then
13:49:58crashdthe BL file is probably similar to the h10's BL_H10.rom
13:50:08B4gdervery likely, yes
13:50:42tucozhmm. What is the name of the on-button for ondios?
13:51:26tucozthat is, in the flashing instructions "...MiniMon monitor is included, it starts with F3+On (recorders), RIGHT+ON (Ondio) or "+"+ON (player)..."
13:51:51Genre9mp3The Sansa is good looking and small...
13:52:13tucozis it the mode button perhaps?
13:52:16Genre9mp3B4gder: What do you think about it's LCD?
13:52:31B4gderlooks nice
13:52:36*tucoz summons amiconn
13:54:01B4gderI didn't find a screwdriver small enough to really pull it to pieces
13:54:12B4gderhave to do it at home instead
13:54:31preglowB4gder: so you think the pp5024 is just very similar to the pp5022, then?
13:54:31B4gderthe outer screws only opens it enough to replace the battery
13:54:34preglowwould be good news for me
13:54:45B4gderyes, either that or this isn't a 5024 at all
13:56:10 Quit menollo ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
13:57:11B4gder... and the h10 .mi4 file looks very similar
13:57:13linuxstbThe 5024 has a lot of extra hardware in it though - the audio codec, headphone amp, RTC, battery charging, a "unique ID" for use with Windows Media DRM....
13:57:44linuxstbB4gder: Time to open it up...
13:57:54B4gderI'll do it tonight
13:58:40linuxstbHave sandisk given you any answers about documentation?
14:00:12B4gderhe has answered more like "it might be hard, what you you need? I try to do this informally"
14:00:25crashdthey are locked into their nda with pp, i'd guess
14:00:34B4gderI assume so too
14:00:44crashdand to get stuff to load on these particular pp setups you'd need to sort that out
14:00:51B4gderand this guy is in the US, and I'm not sure they even have developers there
14:01:08linuxstbDoes the sansa have a mic input?

14:02:45LinusNnot that i know of
14:02:45linuxstbshriphani: Your OS makes no difference. You just download the files and copy them to the relevant subdirectories under .rockbox/ on your ipod.
14:03:06tucozLinusN, do you happen to know what button ON is on the ondios?
14:03:15shriphaniok so i just copy the entire zip file to mah ./rockbox ?
14:03:15ashridahshriphani: i don't think torvalds starts with an N

14:03:45ashridahyes, it's a curious co-incidence.

14:04:39linuxstbshriphani: It depends how the zip file has been created. Just compare the files in the zip with the files in .rockbox/themes/ and .rockbox/wps/ - it should be obvious what goes where.

14:15:00shriphaniguys rockbox seems to be consuming a lot of battery any fix for this ?
14:15:23crashdit's a feature.
14:15:35linuxstbIf there was an easy fix, it would already be done...
14:15:51linuxstbBut it will be worked on.
14:16:25shriphaninow at least ppl wont take a look at my ipod and say wtf is that
14:17:58shriphanihey if i go put mp4 codecs in .rockbox/codecs will it play video
14:18:45ashridahshriphani: those codecs are rockbox specific bits of code
14:19:16ashridahsadly, no-one's hacked together a winelib loader and x86 virtual machine for rockbox yet :)
14:19:43ashridahvideo playback on the ipod video is handled by a third party chip we don't have docs for
14:19:53ashridahso it's likely to be a long long time before video works on that

15:22:31linuxstbB4gder even...
15:23:07B4gderobviously at least 4 different brands of PP players use it
15:23:17linuxstbBut tagcache means we can avoid these proprietory databases anyway.
15:23:48B4gderyes, it just just a little detail, hardly anything that matters to Rockbox
15:24:42linuxstbSo you can just drag and drop files anywhere on the player, and the database updates itself?
15:25:10linuxstbIs that fully automatic?
15:25:25preglowtagcache still needs to be updated manually, yes?
15:25:30B4gderI haven't tried it much yet but the little I have it found out by itself

16:42:40klrspzantil33t, you can set that as well
16:42:52XavierGrwhat happened at rockbox front page?
16:42:53klrspzi highly encourage just going through every single option and playing with it

18:47:54Genre9mp3why's that?
18:48:14Paul_The_NerdThat diagonal slidebar thing just looks funny to me.
18:48:23Paul_The_NerdI mean the player has an inverted % sign on it.
18:48:39Genre9mp3It seems an excelent player to me...
18:48:50Paul_The_NerdProbably not bad in terms of features.
18:49:02Paul_The_NerdThough it looks like the e200 series is a little better in that area.
18:49:02Genre9mp3And the % thing is something that you can get used to...
18:49:37Paul_The_NerdThough the iAudio 6 is a bit cheaper, so it becomes as "How much is X feature worth to you to add it?"
18:49:41Paul_The_NerdAlso, the 6 is microdrive based, isn't it?
18:49:47Genre9mp3Does the Sansa have USBOTG at high speed?
18:50:02Genre9mp3and a nice OLED screen
18:50:10Paul_The_NerdThe Sansa doesn't have USBOTG at all.
18:50:55Paul_The_NerdIt's basically a tradeoff between the two of them, in the end.
18:51:23Paul_The_NerdI personally don't see the point in buying a microdrive player.
18:54:19Paul_The_NerdI have nothing against the iAudio 6, it looks nice. It's just not my type of player, I suppose
18:55:55Genre9mp3Well I think that is a very capable player...full of features
18:56:30Genre9mp3Radio, Line-In Recording, USBOTG etc.
18:57:46Genre9mp3Though, as I understand it, Sansa's key feature over the iAudio 6 is the SD Card Reader
18:57:46Paul_The_NerdAnd I never said it wasn't a very capable player

19:08:44amiconntucoz: You wanted to ask sth?
19:09:07Paul_The_Nerdwebguest82: I don't have anything to test that with at the moment, but I seem to recall ports that it doesn't, so I'm going to assume they're valid and not bother checking because I'm lazy. :)
19:09:13Galoiswhat do you not like about the nano?
19:09:16tucozamiconn: yes. What is the on button on the ondios? with regards to the flashing section
19:09:57tucozin the Known issues and limitations section at
19:09:57*amiconn wonders what's the connection of flashing with the On button
19:10:04Paul_The_NerdGalois: Primarily the fact that it has no built in mic, and I wanted something small that I can use for taking voice memos and also as a music player.
19:10:40GaloisI see. For me the main drawback is that it has a little less space than I would like.
19:11:16amiconntucoz: Wrt the boot options, On is the combined OnOff on Ondio
19:11:17 Quit webguest82 ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
19:11:30tucozok. Thanks
19:11:35amiconnBut the flashing instructions are terribly outdated, even the wiki version
19:11:49tucozI see. Well the wiki version is in the manual now at least
19:11:57Paul_The_NerdGalois: I also like the FM Radio feature of the Sansa (iAudio 6 has as well) just because it's nice to be able to check weather/news/etc.
19:12:02amiconnI already have them on my todo list, but 3.0 itself is more important imho
19:12:28tucozThat's ok with me
19:13:01amiconnPaul_The_Nerd: Hehe, the Ondio has all those things you mention that the Sansa has, but the Nano doesn't
19:13:04Paul_The_NerdI wonder though, why they chose to use the USB cable as the FM antenna.
19:13:08amiconn(radio, recording, built-in mic)
19:13:28amiconnAnd expandable storage via flash memory cards
19:13:30*Genre9mp3 is downloading Sansa's e200 manual
19:13:39GaloisI never used radio or recording even when I had mp3 players that supported it, so ... no loss for me

19:13:50Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: Yes, it does, and I seriously considered it for quite a while, but the Nano was given to me as a gift anyway. ;)
19:14:00pixelmaGenre9mp3: I like the iCatcher wps (except: on Archos only halfway) and I appreciate that you developed it for all targets :) - but I noticed that some of the code (regarding artist, album, title) could be written simpler IMO
19:14:39Genre9mp3pixelma: In what way simpler?
19:14:40Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: The Sansa doesn't *seem* to have the hiss that the iPods and iRivers have by the way, but there's definitely some noise being caused by something during video playback, and the LED for the wheel causes some. I can't get the volume low enough to be absolutely sure though.
19:15:16amiconnWhat about silence in tracks?

19:16:05Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: Do you think pausing would be good enough, or should I find something actually silent?
19:16:11amiconnWhen looking at the images on Bagder's page, I think the Sansa is quite big for a flash player
19:16:34amiconnPaul_The_Nerd: Well, just encode a digital silence track, and play that
19:16:38Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: It's smaller than a Nano in an iSkin, for what that's worth.
19:16:46amiconnBtw, what formats does Sansa of play?
19:17:01Genre9mp3pixelma: I just made it to show info if an ID3 tag is not present
19:17:12pixelmaGenre9mp3: to give you an example: the title line would be shorter and should work the same as if it looked...
19:17:14pixelma...%s%ac%?in<%in - |%pp - >%?it<%it|%fm>
19:18:00Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: Nothing special. MP3, WMA, DRMWMA and WAV if I recall.
19:18:47Genre9mp3pixelma: You are probably right
19:18:51pixelmaGenre9mp3: also have alternatives for album and artist tags
19:19:01amiconnPaul_The_Nerd: No ogg... what else to expect ;)
19:19:17amiconnMaking a digital-zero .wav should be dead simple
19:19:39Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: I don't have anything to make one with, apparently. I swear I had some sort of audio tool on my laptop. Recommend something for windows by chance?

19:21:52Paul_The_NerdHmm... the video support is better than I expected, considering the complaints I'd heard

23:24:58dionoeaunfortunately yes :(
23:25:10dionoeabut with ehci it loops on messages like:
23:25:16*dionoea gets his ipod
23:26:04dionoeaor maybe i should remove uchi instead ... although i doubt that both would conflict
23:26:30Bagderthey don't for me
23:26:38dionoeaJun 15 23:26:30 localhost kernel: usb 4-4: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 46
23:26:42Bagderthen I don't use ipod
23:26:42*amiconn notices that the sponsors box on the website started moving around, and ended up in a floating box
23:26:45dionoeai get this every 3 seconds in syslog
23:26:52dionoeaonly for ipod. Archos works fine

23:35:33dionoeaand it just loops for ever
23:35:50amiconnAh, missed that somehow
23:36:04dionoeacould be a bug in the kernel... but that would be weird since loads of people use USB2 hard drives
23:36:05amiconnIt thinks the ipod is forever new ;)
23:36:10MrStatic1oidthat happened to me when my usb 2.0 controller died
23:36:14*amiconn should try that
23:36:15MrStatic1oidit still worked in usb 1.1

23:39:29Paul_The_NerdEverything official is included.
23:39:46Paul_The_NerdThere are patches that add other plugins, as well as custom themes that people have made.

23:41:02JackalSMPanything i can do to help?
23:41:31dionoeaamiconn: i'll try on an other computer ... maybe it's just an issue with my laptop's usb
23:41:54Paul_The_NerdJackalSMP: If you're a programmer, tracking down and fixing bugs is the primary task around here.
23:42:43JackalSMPi do graphic design but i have friends who do programming and i think i can get him to help out
23:44:17dionoeahum, is booting with "hold" on supposed to clear the config ? (because it just did here when i unplugged the usb)
