02:48:22toxicfumeare there any big/significant upcoming features in rockbox planned for the ipods?
02:48:56earHertztoxicfume: no. But I have some patyches you might want
02:49:07Mikachuthe pause on headphone unplug is immensely useful imo
02:49:11toxicfumeearHertz, what kind of patches?
02:49:23toxicfumeMikachu, that sounds like a good one
02:49:38earHertzlcd speedup, list scroll speedup, controversial scroll wheel acceleration
02:49:50toxicfumesome chinese company needs to make cheap FM recievers fot the ipods :P
02:50:43 Join akaias [0] (
02:50:49toxicfumeearHertz, interesting, i wouldn't mind that
02:51:04earHertzyeah, well you can have it.
02:51:12earHertzjust download it
02:51:33Mikachuthat url is the headphone thing then
02:51:38earHertzthe patch tracker. This means you have to compile your own build
02:51:48toxicfumeoh i dont have a compiler
02:51:58Mikachulook forward to it in the future then :)
02:52:05earHertzeh, wat ipod do you have?
02:52:28toxicfume5G, ipod video
02:52:38earHertz30 gb or 60?
02:52:55earHertzhow much are you willing to pay for a build?
02:53:10toxicfumelots of love
02:53:24earHertzI don't do that cyber stuff
02:53:43toxicfumeguess i'm outta luck then!
02:53:46earHertzYou understand about private builds, right?
02:53:55toxicfumei guess not
02:54:11earHertzyou can't complain about buigs in it, because it contains stuff not in teh offical dev build
02:54:23toxicfumeofcourse not
02:54:29toxicfumejust tell me how to apply the patch
02:54:42Mikachuthere are details in the wiki
02:54:47toxicfumeand i wont bother you again (hopefully)
02:54:48earHertzso if there's a bug, you just gotta remove teh unofficial build and use the official one. you can't complain to the devs, because gthey didn't make that build, see?
02:55:07earHertzto apply teh patch you nneed a compiler
02:55:18toxicfumeMikachu, i'm using hydrairc why?
02:55:25Mikachujust checking your os
02:55:34toxicfumeearHertz, oh save it then, can't be bothered now :p
02:56:52earHertztoxicfume: with my build, the scroll accel is going to drive you nuts at first
02:57:09toxicfumethanks Mikachu
02:57:18earHertztoxicfume: here'
02:57:19Mikachui think earHertz might be building you something
02:57:22earHertzs the build:
02:57:43earHertzyeah, I just uploadee it for to
02:57:52toxicfumeearHertz, ah got it, thansk a lot!
02:58:08Mikachui have too many patches to compile for anyone else :)
02:58:28earHertzyeah, that build's just MY patches
02:58:41toxicfumeearHertz, so this means I have to go through the process of writing the firmware onto my ipod again right?
02:58:52earHertztoxicfume: oh, hell no
02:58:59toxicfumeoh i can just append?
02:59:01Mikachuyou just unzip it, like when you normally update your build
02:59:04earHertzjust unzip the zip file to your ipod
02:59:18toxicfumeI've never updated before
02:59:21toxicfumeso.. :P
02:59:27Mikachuyou can never say that again
02:59:38earHertztoxicfume: make a save of your config, just in case
02:59:54toxicfumeearHertz, how to do that?
03:00:02Mikachumanage settings->write .cfg
03:00:03earHertzin the menju somewhere
03:00:10toxicfumeokay thansk
03:00:13earHertzI never do it
03:01:12 Quit rotator ()
03:02:53toxicfumeMikachu, I chose the write .cfg option, but which button do I press to actually save it under that filename?
03:03:29toxicfumethe center button does nothing :s
03:03:52Mikachuyou have to hold it down a while

03:10:34toxicfumeokay my first update just done yay
03:11:42toxicfumeearHertz, what's exactly LCD Speedup? isit some setting i can customize?
03:12:08earHertzno, no
03:12:17earHertzit makes teh lcd updates 6% faster
03:12:34earHertzabout one frame per second faster
03:12:47earHertzThere's no cost to it, it's just improved code
03:13:10toxicfumeohh nice
03:13:25toxicfumehowever, the scrolling is really really hard to use now, you were right :P
03:15:17toxicfumehmm that must be customizable right?
03:15:40toxicfumei see something in the system menu
03:15:43earHertzmeny|general|system|iposd scroll

05:00:47hacimis this item in the faq still true, "No version of Rockbox has been officially released yet for the iriver line of players."?

05:02:26hacimI heard that the ivriver h110 had the best rockbox support
05:04:04smably_hacim: h300 and h100 series are both working quite well
05:06:39hacimsmably_: is the difference between the h300 and h100 just size of the drive?
05:06:44earHertzany europeans here?
05:08:00smably_no, h100 and h300 series both come in 20 and 40 gb versions (h100's may also come in smaller capacities; not sure)
05:08:10smably_the main difference is that the h300's have a color display
05:08:33smably_h100's have more IO options
05:15:11hacimand apparantly the h300's can play video
05:16:04smably_they can, to a very limited extent, and only if you use the korean firmware

05:37:20webguest19hello, there
05:37:27 Quit juxtap (Read error: 113 (No route to host))
05:37:40webguest19if i put rockbox on my iPod, will it erase everything or something?
05:38:02webguest19because i have this other software to jus upgrade the graphics on it, and that does it
05:38:05webguest19im just wondering
05:38:53webguest19i have an iPod video, 30GB
05:41:29ashridahwebguest19: i can't say for sure, since i don't know what the other software is doing, but the normal install doesn't erase any of your data, and the original ipod firmware can still be loaded when booting the device
05:42:08ashridahsince there's no flashing, i'm willing to bet that the other software still works, but havnig a backup of the data that's on your ipod isn't a *bad* idea in any case, rockbox is still in development on the ipods after all
05:42:47 Join Daishi [0] (
05:43:26hacimoh I am guessing that if you put the korean firmware on the H340 to be able to watch vids, you can't also use rockbox at the same time, is that right?
05:43:26webguest19alright, thank you!
05:43:51ashridahhacim: the two firmwares will be available in dual-boot form
05:44:14ashridahthe big problem with using the korean firmware is that if you've got the US version, you'll lose DRM support in iriver's firmware permanently
05:44:30 Quit earHertz (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
05:45:33ashridahso you'll have iriver's firmware, which can play video, and rockbox's, which doesn't suck at playing music or booting quickly :)
05:45:33hacimDRM is dumb anyways

07:23:28webguest92hey i got everything installed correctly, but i cant find my music!
07:25:02webguest92do i have to go back into itunes and disable disk use?
07:25:27PhobiacYou used itunes to put the music on?
07:26:02earHertzwebguest92: had you al;ready pur music on teh ipod?
07:26:32webguest92i have to put them on normally now?
07:26:41earHertzpress menu
07:26:58 Quit Sinbios ("If the definition of a klutz is someone who doesn't have eyes on their ass, then yes, I suppose I am a klutz.")
07:27:14earHertzthen uh, the second item
07:27:26earHertzscroll to the 2nd item and press select
07:27:28webguest92sound setting?
07:27:52webguest92thats my 2nd item
07:28:00earHertzuh, right now I write code to replace all my second lines with the third line
07:28:10earHertzso I can't see it on my ipod
07:28:11scorche lol
07:28:12webguest92oh general settings?
07:28:18earHertzyeah, probably
07:28:28PhobiacWait, did you place the files in the root of the iPod or put them on with itunes?
07:28:35earHertzscorche: trll him how to set up tagcache, will you?
07:28:57scorcheearHertz: just link him to the wiki =)
07:29:03PhobiacThen the files are placed in a (currently) hidden folder.
07:29:04scorcheim lazy
07:29:07earHertzwebguest92: you want to turnm on tagcache, then force it to read
07:29:29earHertzthen let it read for thirty minutes
07:29:40earHertzthen reboot
07:30:03earHertzthat'll give you an interfeace like the apple firmware
07:30:11webguest92so im in tag cache, i should have it onload to RAM?
07:30:34webguest92then force to update, right?
07:30:35earHertzthen hit force tagacahe, the entry just below
07:30:47earHertzthen wait thirty minutes
07:31:11scorchewebguest92: keep in mind that 30 min is an estimation =)
07:31:51PhobiacWon't he run into issues though? If he placed the songs on with itunes, the itunes database is the one being used and all his songs have random looking names.
07:32:15midkaywhy not just say till the disk stops accessing?
07:32:17scorchePhobiac: tagcache uses the id3 tags
07:32:25midkaycould only be a couple minutes if he has fewer than, say, a thousand songs.
07:32:26PhobiacOh, okay.
07:32:49webguest92i have 1,069 i think xD
07:32:49 Quit Phobiac ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
07:32:59midkaywebguest92, should only be around five minutes, i'd expect.
07:33:14midkayyou'll see a black disk icon in the upper right, if you've got the status bar on. next to the clock.
07:33:15scorchemidkay: cause it can be easier for some people to say "wait about 30 min, then check" rather than just that
07:33:20midkaywhen it goes off, that means it's done.
07:33:30midkayscorche, well, that's a hell of a waste of time, if it's done after 2 minutes.
07:33:33webguest92its off
07:33:35 Quit Yannni ()
07:33:37webguest92do i have to restart?
07:33:40midkaywebguest92, then it's done. restart.
07:33:42scorchemidkay: i wasnt the one that said 30 min ;)
07:33:48midkayscorche, you backed it up though.. :)
07:34:08scorchebut i said that it was his estimate
07:34:21scorchehooray for pointless internet fights! =D
07:34:36midkayhooray indeed! -> you said it was "an" estimate, not "his" or "an" estimate.
07:34:42scorcheok fine
07:34:57yuriksI'm looking into starting rockbox devlopment
07:35:02yurikswhere could I start?
07:35:15midkayand if you'll bother to say that it's his, you might bother pointing out that yours is that it could be done in a tenth of the time. :)
07:35:22midkayyuriks, the wiki.
07:35:28 Join dilinger [0] (n=dilinger@
07:35:30midkayDocsIndex has a whole developers section.
07:35:40midkayguidelines/starting out stuff..
07:35:41dilingerso i just got a b&w 4th gen ipod..
07:35:51yuriksI arleady got it to compile
07:35:56dilingerand i'm attempting to follow the instructions to install a daily build
07:36:05yurikswhat would be a good "Hello world" to me to try?
07:36:14dilingerhowever, the linux instructions basically talk about the 4gs having only 2 partitions
07:36:15midkayyuriks, there's already a helloworld plugin..
07:36:18dilingerand the second partition being vfat
07:36:18*scorche puts some new duracell 2650 mAh batteries in his ajr
07:36:24dilingerthe device i have has 3 partitions
07:36:25midkayyuriks, if you know the coding language, you just need to learn your way around the code.
07:36:31dilingerand the third partition is hfs+
07:36:37dilinger(which i can't seem to write to in linux)
07:36:43midkaythere's a helloworld example for plugin development, docs in the wiki with plenty of info, etc.
07:36:58scorchedilinger: you can, you just dont have the packages installed it seems
07:36:58yuriksdilinger: you iP is a Mac iP
07:37:01webguest92is there a way to reboot it into regular ipod mode? [sorry i dont know the right lingo lol]
07:37:11yuriksdilinger: boot into windows and reset the ipod
07:37:12earHertzwebguest92: that's exacrly teh right lingo
07:37:22yurikswebguest92: hold Menu
07:37:24dilingerscorche: packages? i'm talking about literally mount /dev/sda3 /mnt -t hfsplus -o rw
07:37:31dilingerand i can't write to that
07:37:34earHertzwebguest92: reboot the ipod by pressing select_menu; then keep pressing menu
07:37:46midkayyuriks, what are you interested in working on?
07:37:47yuriksyeah, that
07:37:48webguest92okay thanks

07:38:08yuriksYou will need to find one
07:38:16scorchewebguest92: it takes some time to master it though...more precisely, it is menu, release, hold menu again
07:38:23midkayearHertz, seriously, set up an auto-replace for your client.. to change 'teh' to 'the'. :)
07:38:24dilingeryuriks: there's *no way* to install rockbox onto my ipod via linux?
07:38:28yuriksor you can try formatting it using Linux, I'm not sure if it works tho
07:38:30earHertzscorche: no wonder i have such trouble with it
07:38:38yuriksdilinger: there is, but it needs to be a FAT iPod
07:38:49 Quit webguest92 ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
07:38:58earHertzdilinger: rockbox doesn't read hfs
07:38:58yuriksdilinger: Using it *once* in Windows makes it a FAT iPod
07:39:11scorchemidkay: i have that as an auto-replace, but i like saying "teh" when making fun of certain people...
07:39:15yuriksor try formatting the 2nd partition as fat
07:39:24Mikachuformatting the second partition will work fine
07:39:31Mikachujust make sure to use -F 32
07:39:35dilingeryuriks: so if i simply turn it into a fat32 partition in linux, the apple firmware will know how to handle it? (if the rockbox firmware doesn't work)
07:39:37midkayscorche, same, came with xchat by default.. but when the problem gets *this* bad (earHertz-bad).. something has to be done.
07:39:46yuriksdilinger: that, I don't know
07:39:46earHertzmidkay: does chatzila have autoreplace?
07:39:56yuriksrockbox should work tho
07:40:04dilingerso i can leave sda3 as hfs+, and turn sda2 into vfat?
07:40:11yuriksdilinger: hmm, wait
07:40:15dilingerand install rockbox on sda2?
07:40:22midkayearHertz, dunno. i'm pretty sure that it has 'that client really sucks', though. :D
07:40:29Mikachuwhy do you have three partitions??
07:40:33earHertzdilinger: no, no, you want to access the same files in rockbox as in teh retailos
07:40:36dilingerMikachu: that's what i'm wondering
07:40:44earHertzmidkay: ;()
07:40:49yurikspaste the output of "fdisk /dev/sda -l"
07:40:55yuriksreplace sda with your iP device
07:41:12dilingerDisk /dev/sda doesn't contain a valid partition table
07:41:23dilingerhowever, here's what i see in dmesg
07:41:29dilinger[17203874.184000] sda: [mac] sda1 sda2 sda3
07:41:48yurikshmm, it got a mac part table
07:41:57yuriksdoes anyone know if fdisk can handle that?
07:42:01Mikachutry cfdisk
07:42:07Mikachuthe man page for fdisk says not to use it :)
07:42:10Mikachufdisk that is
07:42:13Mikachuit recommends cfdisk
07:42:31dilingercfdisk doesn't see a partition table either
07:42:36dilingerlemme see if parted can handle it
07:42:55dilingeryea, parted works
07:43:02yuriksdilinger: try sfdisk
07:43:21yuriksdilinger: ok, what's the part table?
07:44:57yuriksformat the 3rd one
07:45:46yuriksI would still recommend getting your hands in a windoze machine to reset it tho
07:45:55yuriksyou don't have anything to lose tho ;)

08:04:44Myk3i have just installed rockbox on my iaudio x5
08:04:59Myk3but it looks very plain
08:05:15Myk3i saw a post on line and his x5 was very eye pleasing

08:07:40dilingerso i restored the apple firmware
08:07:46dilingerit deals w/ the vfat partition just fine
08:07:49dilingerso i think that's ok
08:08:05dilingeri think the freezing that i'm seeing is the daily build
08:08:52scorchedilinger: you can always use "bleeding edge" builds as well
08:09:45dilingerunless the bootloader isn't properly loading the apple firmware
08:09:53yuriksdilinger: hmm, did another copmuter with windows just suddenly POP beside you?
08:10:02dilingeryuriks: no?
08:10:14scorchewell, your problem doesnt sound like it is the build you dl
08:10:16dilingeryuriks: ..what are you talking about?
08:10:17Myk3how do i install patches?
08:10:18yuriksweird, you said you didn't have any windows computer nbearby
08:10:29dilingeryuriks: i still don't have any windows computers
08:10:34yuriksMyk3: you have to compile from source
08:10:41dilingeri restored the apple firmware by dd'ing it
08:10:44yuriksdilinger: ah.. ok
08:10:50dilingeri made backups of all the partitions before doing anything
08:10:51Myk3can i do that on winblows?
08:11:01yurikswell, that doesn't solves the problem =)
08:11:08dilingerso /dev/sda3 is empty (but vfat)
08:11:09yuriksMyk3: yes, you have to dl quite some stuff tho
08:11:15dilingerwhen sda2 is the apple firmware, it seems to boot and work just fine
08:11:22yuriksdilinger: doesn't help us
08:11:26Myk3well for know im going back to normal
08:11:28dilingerwhen it's the rockbox firmware, it seems to hang
08:11:30Myk3thnx though
08:11:45yuriksrockbox expects it to be at sda1: blank and sda2: fat
08:11:46dilingeri used this:
08:12:05dilingerand followed the instructions from here:
08:12:25dilingerhowever, perhaps i should be using sda1 instead of sda2?
08:12:37dilinger-rw-r−−r−− 1 dilinger dilinger 71K 2006-06-25 01:14 rockboot.bin
08:12:38yuriksscorche: I guess he means "getting patches and makin a firmware"
08:12:47dilingerthat's following the wiki instructions exactly
08:12:50yuriksdilinger: well, since you have backups

08:13:02dilingerthat's using sda2 in place of sda1
08:13:06yurikscreating a vfat partition there
08:13:11yuriksand formatting it as fat
08:13:31yuriksalso see if you hadn't forgoten to change the part. type in the part. table ;)

08:14:29yurikshaha, the all your base guy had funny grammar for sure
08:14:42dilingerparted sees sda3 as a fat32 partition
08:14:51yurikshmmm, well, nuje
08:14:55dilingerno idea if that's using the actual partition type or not
08:15:03scorcheyuriks: not everyone in here is fluent in english
08:15:14yurikswe want it to be just like a Win iPod
08:15:23yuriksscorche: yeah I know, I wasn't some years ago too
08:15:30yuriksbut I don't think I ever wrote that way >_>
08:16:01scorcheyuriks: maybe he uses babelfish
08:16:55dilingeryuriks: er... wait, remove sda2 and sda3? does sda1 actually contain anything that will boot?
08:17:02yuriksdilinger: you COULD dd the firmware off (the first empty part), use cfdisk -z /dev/sda, creating...
08:17:04dilingerit's only 32kb
08:17:05yuriksdilinger: on mine it does
08:17:09yuriksoh, no then
08:17:18yurikstry merging the two
08:17:21dilingerparted claims it contains a partition map
08:17:35yuriksMac stuff proably
08:17:41*dilinger points to again
08:17:41yuriksI got an ideia
08:17:57yuriksdd the sda2 off
08:18:30yuriksthen use cfdisk -z /dev/sda (it will start from scratch)
08:18:52yuriksmake sda1 a blank "partition" of the size of your dd image
08:19:05yuriksthen fill the rest of the disk with an empty fat partition
08:19:26yurikshmm, I wonder, can't we just nuke the original firmware alltogether?
08:19:37dilingerwell, in theory, sure
08:19:58yurikswell, you got Disk Mode and a dd image, go for it
08:20:04*dilinger double checks that sda1 actually comes 512 bytes into sda, since that's how much of the mbr i backed up
08:20:19yuriksdd the WHOLE disk =P
08:20:39yurikswell... 20gb...
08:20:45dilingeryea, cool
08:20:48yuriksdd some 200mb
08:20:53dilingerpartition map fits into 512 meg
08:21:12yuriksdd a good sized chunk from the start
08:21:19dilingerthen comes sda1, which hexdump shows as having "PM", "partition map", "Apple_partition_map"
08:21:44yuriksbackup that, then nuke everything and make a single fat partition
08:21:50yuriksthen try that =]
08:22:48dilingerso if i have a single fat partition, where does rockboot.bin go?
08:23:34yuriksdd if=/dev/sda bs=1k conv=notrunc | bzip2 −−best > backup.bz2
08:23:39yuriksyou have a point
08:23:46dilingeri'll make two partitions
08:24:00yurikstry this:
08:24:06yuriksdd sda2 off the disk
08:24:10yuriksnuke em all
08:24:24yuriksdd sda2 to a correctly sized partition (as sda1)
08:24:33yurikscreate sda2 as a fat part
08:24:41yuriksPROFIT! (maybe =P)
08:24:43dilingerso drop sda1 completely, you're saying?
08:24:51dilingerand just move the other two partitions forward?
08:24:55yuriksdilinger: yeah, it is just Mac partition table stuff
08:25:25yuriksdilinger: use cfdisk -z /dev/sda, that will nuke the MBR, which is something we need to do (to make is PC-format)
08:25:59yuriksthen you create a sda1, dd the image into it, and create sda2 where you will put your data
08:26:09yuriksnot sure if the firmware is compatible tho =]
08:26:45yuriks Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
08:26:46yuriks/dev/sda1 1 5 40131 0 Empty

08:26:53yurikswhere's what I got on my mini 2g
08:27:02yuriksPhotos have bigger stuff tho
08:27:14yuriksI'll see what I get in iPL
08:28:38yuriksdilinger: I still wonder WHERE on Earth you are with no windows boxes near by
08:31:40 Nick sando is now known as sandoaway (n=lolsteam@
08:32:28dilingerhehe, neat
08:32:32yuriksscorche: hmm, do you have any ideia if it's possible to implement that "remove headphone, music pauses" thingie that the official firmware has? (an iPodLinux too)
08:32:43dilingerwhen i use the apple firmware, it shows me a picture of a broken folder
08:32:49dilingerand tells me to contact apple support :)
08:33:33yurikshaha, borked ;)
08:33:38yuriksrestore your backup then
08:33:44yuriksdilinger: and on rockbox?
08:33:56yuriks(don't restore your backup yet)
08:34:03dilingeri'm betting it's not happy w/ the partition table types
08:34:09dilingeror maybe it requires a bootable partition?
08:34:56dilingeri set the disk label to msdos, and the partition types to 83 (linux). i'll try setting those to dos and see what happens
08:35:11yuriksdilinger: wait, did you do the cfdisk thingie?
08:35:32yuriksdilinger: the firmware needs to be "None" (aka, No partition)
08:35:36yuriksand the second one FAT
08:35:44yuriksbut I guess it won't work anyway -_-
08:36:33yuriksI think dilinger what kind of iPod is this?
08:39:04yuriksdilinger: ???
08:39:24yuriksheh, that "I think" was part from another message ;S
08:39:39dilingeri can't seem to set the type to "none" for the first partition
08:39:49dilingeri set the second one to fat32 LBA
08:39:52dilingerit's a 4g
08:40:30 Join TCK [0] (
08:40:31yuriksdilinger: oh right, just "Delete" the partition

08:43:45dilingeryuriks: that doesn't help
08:43:48dilingerany other suggestions?
08:45:30yurikswell, iPL guys ran ou of suggestion
08:45:39yuriksthey say that you should get windows =]
08:46:39dilingeri don't see how that's going to help :P
08:46:51dilingerunless it's just rockbox not knowing how to handle 3 partitions instead of two
08:47:14yuriksdilinger: using the apple tool automagically makes it work =P
08:47:17yurikstry this:
08:47:21scorchedilinger: you could always wait until someone more experienced with the ipod comes around
08:47:32yurikscfdisk -z /dev/sda
08:47:46yuriksthen create a partition that goes from 0mb to 63mb at the start
08:47:51yuriksthen fill in with a fat part.
08:48:18yuriksthen dd the backup, delete sda1, format sda2, and try, again
08:49:40dilingerwell, it's almost 3am here
08:49:51yuriksjust try that
08:49:59dilingeri think i'm just going to give up for tonight and try again tomorrow

12:59:45reverendnathanHey! Question about building in Linux and dmseg
13:00:12reverendnathanWhen I use dmesg, it give me a lot of information, but not information that is included in the wiki?
13:00:34stripwaxat what point do you need to use dmesg to build??
13:00:35earHertzdmesg gives hyou system messages
13:00:42reverendnathanSorry, read the wiki wrong :-o
13:01:03reverendnathanIt's uh... little skimp on what you use directly in the terminal
13:01:17reverendnathanThat's cool, though; looks way easier than that dreaded windows tut
13:02:03earHertzstripwax: can I load firmware from the diretory browser on teh ipod?
13:02:27stripwaxearHertz - should be able to ,although I've personally not tried that on ipod yet (only had one three days..)
13:02:42earHertzyou come up to speed quick
13:03:16stripwaxwell, my h120 was a bit long in the tooth so I was comfortable putting rockbox on the ipod immediately i got it :-)
13:05:42reverendnathanBy the way, the tutorial is confusing... does this KEEP the apple firmware AND rockbox?
13:05:53earHertzreverendnathan: yah
13:06:01jmspeexfreqmod: what's the problem with seeking?
13:06:28reverendnathanSo if I hand the iPod to my friend, and finds the interface bewildering, I can reset it and he can use the Apple firmware?

13:11:24freqmodI don't think it is a problem with speex, if it is, then it is because the interface only checks for seeks on data reads, and I was/am using a 50kb (input) data buffer.

13:13:50reverendnathanOK, nother question Linuxers.
13:13:54reverendnathanStep 3 in this wiki
13:14:07reverendnathanHow would I set that up with the extra step?
13:14:18reverendnathanCombine the bootloader and the Apple firmware into a new boot partition image: ipod_fw -g nano -o rockboot.bin -i apple_os.bin bootloader-nano.bin Replace -g nano with the model of your ipod - type ipod_fw without any arguments for usage instructions. NOTE: iPod Video users need a copy of the apple_sw_5g_rcsc.bin file that you extracted in step 2 in the current directory when running ipod_fw
13:14:28reverendnathanWhat should I write in my Terminal?
13:15:17linuxstb"ipod_fw -g nano -o rockboot.bin -i apple_os.bin bootloader-nano.bin" - amending as appropriate for your ipod.
13:15:48earHertzwe use the broadcomm firmware for what/
13:16:26earHertzso why does bootlaosder want it? for the retailos?
13:16:59jmspeexpreglow: Had a look at the ARM assembly in Speex yet? (I can point you to the routines that would need optimizing)
13:17:16linuxstbearHertz: Yes, retailos needs it. The Apple bootloader in flash might even refuse to recognise the firmware partition if there's no broadcom image there - I haven't tested.
13:17:39earHertzwhat's teh broadcomm chip do?
13:18:24linuxstbSits there, wasting space. But all LCD communication needs to go through it.
13:18:57earHertzit decodes video?

13:26:20stripwaxalso rockbox has no concept of video codecs, only audio codecs. now, maybe, just maybe, a video-player plugin might not be too impossible to write. but without specs for the broadcom chip, it's sorta tricky
13:27:03earHertzstripwax: a codecs a codec: a stream comes in, a stream comes out
13:27:20earHertzbroadcomm spececs aren't freely available?
13:27:40stripwaxearHertz - right but there's no pipeline in rockbox from stream->lcd ... we have audio buffers implemented but not video buffers..
13:28:29earHertzI just hate to have hardware go to waste
13:29:17stripwaxi imagine that one day there will be a way for rockbox to utilise that broadcom device - but today is not that day yet

14:04:11Paul_The_NerdThe network.
14:04:15Paul_The_NerdIt wasn't assigning me an IP

14:05:04Paul_The_NerdI can't really move around to test signal strength, or I'd work a bit harder to identify where they are.
14:05:29Paul_The_NerdBut since the network is named "Linksys" and it's unprotected, I suspect that they're not monitoring it too closely
14:05:46stripwaxPaul_The_Nerd it might have MAC address filtering enabled..
14:06:39Paul_The_Nerdstripwax: If it did, they disabled it later, and it was set to restrict all but their mac addresses. It's strange to go from "Completely unprotected for a week" to "A whitelist of mac addresses" but it's possible.
14:07:27Paul_The_NerdEither way, if they do decide to kick me off again, I'll have limited access (apartment complex has an office center) that I'll use to make sure the forums haven't gone insane, but other than that I won't be around much.

16:52:28crwlIMHO having a special "enqueue" feature in the playlist browser wouldn't hurt

16:54:44 Part hacim
16:55:18stripwaxisn't that what "Queue Next" already does?
16:56:07crwlum, in the playlist browser?
16:56:42crwlno, not at all
16:56:53crwlit just adds the song to the playlist next to the currently playing track
16:57:07crwli'm looking for an enqueue feature like in Winamp or XMMS or Amarok
16:57:32 Join toxicfume [0] (
16:57:40daurnimatorew, amarok :S
16:57:55crwlwhere you can effectively choose to, say, jump to the second song in the playlist (after the current song has finished playing) and then _continue from there._
16:58:05stripwaxah, ok
16:58:29kridiancrwl: yip, such a feature..
16:58:40daurnimatori don't get how its different
16:58:40stripwaxthat sounds like it would be v. useful
16:59:39stripwaxdaurnimator - if you're currently listening to track #1 in your playlist but you want to skip forward to track #5, you can only do that by interrupting the current song. What crwl suggests would wait until the current song has finished and then skip forward to track #5, and continue from there (with track #6, track #7, etc)
16:59:45kridianhowever, the 'queue' function seems to do the job
17:00:31daurnimatordo you mean 1,5,2,3,4,6,7? - or 1,5,6,7 (not ever playing 2,3,4)?
17:00:44stripwaxthe latter]

17:01:06daurnimatorcan't you just press "next" 5 times?
17:01:16PaulJamstripwax: can't you achieve this with the current playlist system by moving the currently playing song in front of #5 ?
17:01:17daurnimatorsorry, 4
17:01:23crwlwell, that would kind of defeat the whole purpose of having playlists then
17:01:34crwlif you always had to be pressing buttons after tracks
17:03:11crwlhaving such a "jump there after current song" feature would reduce the amount of needed keypresses in many use cases (at least for me) and would therefore be very useful in a portable device
17:03:58crwlthe same outcome is probably kind of achievable by just editing the playlist as needed but wouldn't be as simple
17:04:01daurnimatori don't like the idea
17:04:05daurnimatorinfact - i hate it
17:04:33crwland that's also the way lots of popular PC music player applications do their "queuing" and i like it
17:04:59crwlwhy would you hate an added feature which you wouldn't be forced to use?

18:49:17tongashi, anyone here about ipod 5G?
18:49:26PhR3aKsomeone here with a rockbox'ed ipod nano?
18:50:40PhR3aK(tongas): not a 5g, but a nano
18:51:15sagittariushey guys just a quick question. My holidays have just started so I'm looking into playing with the rockbox. I'll read the website, documentation when I have a whole day to myself :D but anyways. was just wandering in what language the plugins are written? C? C++? something else? wouldn't mind compiling something and trying it out hehe
18:51:16tongasha soory!
18:51:31sagittariusdid i mention i like what rockbox has to offer:D
18:51:49preglowc and some assembler
18:52:12tongasPhR3aK: do you have problems when connecting ipod to power supply? me: multiple boot
18:52:16sagittariusgood stuff :D assembler not important, assembling is the easiest part hehe
18:52:27preglow99.9% of rockbox is c
18:52:36PhR3aKi thought this was a problem already fixed?
18:52:56PaulJamtongas: i think you need to hold menu while inserting the usb charger
18:53:09sagittariuswhat about when writting plugins? would I be just writting pure C or is there some sort of "rockbox magic code" to be used as well
18:53:33tongasPhR3aK: if i don't, it boots, and boots, and reboots again...
18:53:58preglowsagittarius: language is pure c, but you need some rockbox specific code, of course
18:54:00PhR3aK(tongas): i think thats because of the fact that you still need the original fw to charge / connect to usb
18:54:03stripwaxsagittarius - you'd need to get to grips with the plugin interface provided by rockbox, but it's just all in C..
18:54:05preglowdon't expect stuff like printf to work
18:54:34 Quit XavierGr ()
18:54:38tongasah ok, not fully ready yet ?
18:54:50PhR3aKand without holding menu down he will always try to boot orig. fw
18:55:33tongasso boot in ipod fw before to connect ?
18:55:34PhR3aKi think you have to ask this the core dev's of rockbox...
18:55:35stripwaxtongas - right: rockbox haven't developed a usb file transfer driver yet; so if you want to transfer files you still need the original fw.
18:55:39sagittariusnothing beats printf for debugging :D Will look into it all on a fresh day. just want to get general idea now. My first thing will be to just write the famous 'hello world' and will go from there :)
18:55:53stripwaxbut just for charging, you can hold menu and plug in; and ipod will charge while staying in rockbox
18:55:53preglowsagittarius: hello.c is already done for you :)
18:56:24preglowsagittarius: you still can print to the screen, of course, we also have some other debugging facilitieas
18:56:27preglowbut sure, go ahead
18:56:28preglowand have fun!
18:56:30preglowi'm outtie
18:56:41PhR3aK(tongas): i think the main problem is that its hard to write a driver for that...
18:56:45tongasstripwax: thanks, to PhR too
18:57:29stripwaxsure. at some point it'll be not necessary- but for now this is how it is for ipod
18:57:46sagittariusyeah will read the documentation to get a better idea :) rockbox caught my attention so why not try and write something hehe. I'm sure plenty of people to help out if I get stuck ;)

20:12:06yuriksI mean, there's a wiki article on explaining how to use it as a HOST
20:15:54midkayyuriks, because there's already a disk mode we can use, and time is better spent on making rockbox run well than giving rockbox its own usb mode when we already have access to one..
20:16:12midkayif you're interested in giving rockbox a usb mode, feel free.

20:16:47yuriksugh, driver code is awesomely ugly and full of ifdefs
20:17:20daurnimatoryuriks: thats cause theres different archs
20:17:31yuriksyeah bu, it is REALLY ugly
20:18:03yurikswhy not put stuff in something like "drivers/ipod/4g/buttons.c"
20:18:10yuriksand just ifdef to include that
20:18:15Bagderfeel free to do that

21:42:18San||Awayscript went wrong
21:42:57linuxstb_LWi: The short answer is that you can't. The bootloader only links with code in the firmware/ directory.
21:43:24LWiah ok
21:43:42LWibut i can use the bitmap build system?
21:43:50LWii can copy the show_logo code
21:44:14preglowwhat do you need a picture in the bootloader for?
21:44:57LWipreglow: the point is that if the bootloader works well you can't read the messages anyway and it would be nice to have the rockbox logo shown instead
21:45:01linuxstb_LWi: The bitmap build system is also in apps/
21:45:25preglowi'd rather like the bootloader to not do anything at all with the screen if it works well, but that's just preference, i guess
21:45:36linuxstb_LWi: Or just leave the screen blank - it's only there for a second...
21:46:41LWilinuxstb_: i already have the logo by copying the show_logo code and and the logo .c file from the non-bootloader build. i just wanted to do it cleaner :-)

22:34:21preglowanyone else agree with me that the startup in recording screen option is redundant?
22:36:27amiconnNo, why?
22:37:27preglowbecause it does almost nothing
22:37:34preglowyou save a couple of keypresses, big deal
22:38:01Mikachuwhat if all you're going to do for 2 weeks is recording?
22:38:12preglowthen you're going to be pressing those buttons a lot
22:38:24preglowwhat if i only want to play games for 2 weeks?
22:38:26amiconnWell, this feature was actually implemented on user request iirc
22:38:31preglowshould we add an option for that too?
22:38:35preglowit's redundant and bloats the feature set
22:38:46 Part drippydonut
22:38:56preglowamiconn: we get a lot of user requests...
22:39:08amiconnpreglow: With the same reasoning, you could also remove 'resume on startup'
22:39:19preglowok with me
22:39:37amiconnPlayback and recording (on devices capable of recording) are core features. Playing games is not
22:39:52Mikachuif you remove 'resume on startup' i will be a bit sad, then i'll add it back
22:40:03preglowi always resume manually
22:40:11Mikachuit saves me 7 seconds every time
22:40:19Mikachui just press menu, turn on hold and put it in my pocket
22:40:30Mikachuinstead of pressing menu, waiting 7 seconds, pressing play, turn on hold, and put in my pocket
22:40:44amiconnWell, I neither use 'recording screen on startup' nor 'resume on startup', but I understand why they're there
22:41:11preglowsure, i also understand
22:41:20amiconnMikachu: The wait isn't necessary when rockbox resides in flash. One of the reasons why I still often prefer one of my archoses...
22:41:23preglowi still think it's redundant, though
22:41:33preglowresume on startup a bit less so
22:41:58preglowafter the rec screen is booted, you still need to interact further, so you really don't save much time either
22:42:09Mikachuwell, auto resume is not redundant, please don't remove it. i don't care so much about recording screen since i don't have the capability to record :)
22:42:25preglowamiconn: if you only use mp3s anyway i don't see why you would use anything other than archos
22:42:48preglowthat is, if you weren't a developer, heh
22:43:12amiconnYeah, and the other way 'round, I see not reason switching to a different format than mp3... except maybe a lossless format, if I can afford the necessary space
22:43:50preglowi mainly just switched away from it on the basis of there being free formats around
22:43:54amiconnmp3 is good quality (with the right encoder and enough bitrate), and it doesn't easily support drm
22:44:01preglowplus, i hate mp3 encoding artifacts
22:44:04preglowi can hear them instantly
22:44:28amiconnI can hear encoding artefacts on any lossy format if it's compressed too much
22:44:35preglowyes, of course
22:44:42preglowbut vorbis encoding artifacts sound much better
22:44:49preglowand musepack, for that matter
22:45:16amiconnmusepack is a special case for me. I don't really trust it
22:45:19preglownot claiming that, i'm just saying i can hear mp3 ones extra well
22:45:25preglowwhy not trust it?
22:45:32preglowit's basically a souped of layer 2
22:45:36preglowand layer 2 is a nice, simple codec
22:46:13preglowsouped UP, yes
22:46:20amiconnYes, and I strongly doubt that a beefed up layer 2 performs better than layer 3
22:46:30preglowin this case it's pretty close
22:46:38preglowif you don't think so, i'd urge you to do some tests, you'll be surprised
22:46:50amiconnI know that layer 2 sounds fairly good, but you need higher bitrate than layer 3 for the same quality
22:46:58preglowthis is pretty much what everyone has been saying for a couple of years now
22:47:03preglowyes, of course
22:47:08preglowbut musepack adds tons more coding
22:47:12amiconnIt also depends on the encoder; of which toolame doesn't seem to be the best choice...
22:47:27preglowit does huffman coding, which layer 2does not, it does predictive coding on the coefs, stereo coupling, etc
22:47:43preglowtoolame isn't very good, no
22:48:03*amiconn prefers a rather special encoder for layer 1 and layer 2
22:48:14amiconnPegase... Amiga only :)
22:48:27preglowand i actually seem to prefer codecs that don't include an mdct in the signal chain
22:48:51preglowyou don't get any of those glitchy block artifacts
22:49:34amiconnWell, layer 3 also does huffman coding + stereo coupling, and I believe the mdct stuff allows more compression before artefacts get audible
22:49:43preglowsure it does
22:50:08preglowbut it also introduces a whole slew of new possibly encoding artifacts
22:50:17preglowif the psymodel is bad, you'll hear it a lot faster
22:50:28preglowbut anyway
22:50:50preglowthis is rather pointless, but musepack really does perform a lot better than you'd think it to, just looking at the specs
22:51:54amiconnFor me, an important point is format support. mp3 is supported by virtually anything. None of the other formats comes close.
22:52:10preglowyup, can't argue about that
22:52:29amiconnOgg vorbis is a nice idea, because it's free. Support leaves a lot to be desired...
22:52:36preglowbut i plan to stick with rockbox for the foreseeable future, so kind of a moot point for me now :)
22:53:17preglowvorbis support is very good
22:53:28preglowapart from on daps, of course
22:53:43amiconnThat's what I mean
22:53:48preglowyep, but there i have no problem

23:00:03amiconnWhat I didn't like about MacOS (dunno whether that's changed) is that it restricts you too much. It tries to force you a certain way to do something. Deviating from that way is hard, if not impossible.

23:00:56amiconnWith linux it's the other way 'round. If you don't know enough about how the system works, it's impossible to do certain things.
23:01:23preglowamiconn: gnome based systems are turning the scenario pretty much into the mac os x one
23:01:37amiconnCertainly not
23:01:38pregloweverything is so simplified it's hard to do harder stuff
23:01:41Mikachukde is windows and gnome is macosx
23:02:07preglowyeah, more or less
23:02:14amiconnI prefer gnome over KDE. The KDE desktop is overloaded
23:02:25amiconnI still can do anything in gnome that I can do in KDE
23:02:57amiconnProblems start if something doesn't work as intended... which happens way more often on linux than it happens on windows, at least for me
23:03:08SinceDaysPasshey is there a way to increase the font size in rockbox?
23:03:10preglowso we've heard
23:03:16Mikachuif there is a problem in linux, you can solve it, in windows you are usually screwed
23:03:17preglowSinceDaysPass: you switch to another font
23:03:49SinceDaysPassyou know a good website for fonts?
23:03:52SinceDaysPassdo do any work

23:11:23linuxstb_Bagder: Lack of gapless is my main gripe with xmms
23:11:26Mikachupreglow: gtk2. indirectly based on xmms
23:11:42preglowdoesn't look like it's in the ubuntu repos
23:11:45BagderI never cared much about gapless ;-)
23:11:56preglowabout 30% of my music needs gapless
23:12:45crwlxmms supports gapless just fine if you use the xmms-crossfade output plugin
23:12:57crwlyou can set it to have gapless transitions in automatic song change
23:13:23crwlit probably isn't included by default but at least debian and ubuntu package it
23:13:32Bagderwell, that doesn't really count as proper gapless imho
23:13:37crwlwell, why not?
23:13:40preglowcrwl: ubuntu doesn't
23:13:42Bagderbecause it should to it always
23:13:45Bagderdo it
23:13:53Bagderwithout needing weird options enabled
23:13:54crwlpreglow, it does, in the universe repo
23:14:03crwlwhatever, weird options or not, it works :P

23:24:53reverendnathanI'm using Linux, and I'm installing Rockbox to a iPod Video. Everything has gone smoothly, but the bootloader will not transfer back to the iPod at /dev/sdb1. Do I need to mount it?
23:25:23linuxstb_What happens when you try to write it?
23:26:11reverendnathanI'll show you the output. Basically it shows a transfer log, but it transfers 0.0 Kb
23:26:37ep0ch_i think the "startup in recording screen" option should go and be replaced with this patch
23:26:39linuxstb_Obvious question, but how big is your rockboot.bin?

23:27:47Mikachumy exact words were it is based indirectly on xmms
23:27:59Mikachubeep is a fork of xmms
23:28:04preglowpeople should stop cloning the old winamp interface

23:40:41freqmodbtw. now speex seek & next track works (but not with crossfade (SEGFAULT) or GCC 4.0.3 on ipod:(, gives the sound of silence).
23:41:13freqmoda bit less than with the original firmware

23:42:14freqmodi am seeking much, and restarting ipod degrades preformance
