04:08:15Rob2222atm i have a MK6006 drive here with a very strange behaviour. and i dont know if its from an apple.
04:08:19Mikachuyou haven't been able to low-level format a drive in the last 20 years
04:08:27Rob2222i cant partition it with PM or windows partition.
04:08:27Mikachubut you should be able to repartition it just fine

04:08:56thomasthanks scorche

04:09:44Rob2222i have no idea what to do atm
04:11:16Rob2222is there a good low level format tool?

04:11:44Rob2222i know
04:11:47Rob2222fill with 00
04:11:51scorchebut as Mikachu said, just re-partitioning should be fine
04:11:52Rob2222is ok, tpoo
04:12:08Rob2222i cant re partionate ... i get an error.
04:12:19Rob2222but i didnt get read/write errors
04:12:30scorchewhat error?
04:12:40scorcheand what prog are you using to do this?
04:14:18Rob2222f.e. hey workshop says when opening that drive: This drive contains a layout irregularity - the partition (....240 sectors) appears to be larger then the volume (.....241 sectors). This is likely a corrupt drive or some form of copy protection.
04:15:29Rob2222Whindows Drivemanager says when formatting: The format couldnt be done errorless.
04:18:42Rob2222well, there a 2 possibilities...
04:18:58Rob2222there is a strange bit pattern on the disc that confuses all apps
04:19:05Rob2222OR the drive is defect

08:37:15Zagorsaratoga: lets just hope he comes back. he didn't leave any contact info, we only have his IP address
08:37:44amiconnI mean, is //path/to/file valid and does mean the same as /path/to/file ?
08:37:46Zagoramiconn: you mean trailing, or double?
08:38:16ZagorI think so, but haven't read that part of the specification.
08:38:40Zagormost systems treat it the same at least
08:38:41amiconnBeacuse, rockbox accepts this for normal paths, but not for multi-volume paths. //path/to/file works, but //<MMC1>/path/to/file does not
08:38:49Slasheriat least it should work fine and is quite commonly used in scripts
08:39:10amiconn(but /<MMC1>//path/to/file would)
08:39:41amiconnThe leading doble slash is the cause why the stats plugin does only index the internal flash on Ondio
08:41:14amiconnSO the question is whether to fix the stats plugin or fix dir.c

08:45:06amiconnSlasheri: The question is whether this is a bug, or whether extraneous slashes shouldn't be allowed

08:49:33amiconnWhat program would generate such playlists?
08:49:55Zagorbroken ones :-)
08:50:30amiconnI'd rather want to adhere to posix here. If posix says extra slashes are legal, then handle them

09:54:59Zagorsounds strange that unison is slow on vfat. I can't see why it would be.
09:55:38rolandyes, but rsync only provides syncing (one way)... and i want the changes in both directions be synced (eg: deleting file on ipod -> file deleted on workstation, file added on workstation -> file added to ipod, new file on ipod -> file added to workstation ...),
09:56:02Zagorroland: you can always run rsync two times, one for each direction..

14:05:50PaulJam_can it be, that the text viewer plugin has a problem with files, that start with an empty line?
14:06:37B4gderDgently: does the drive work elsewhere or in plain usb-mode?

14:07:23DgentlyIt seems to work in plain USB mode. At least it let me transfer 80gigs back on to it with no problems.
14:07:54PaulJam_if i open a textfile that has an empty first line with the viewer in the sim it hangs, and if i remove the first line from the file it works in the sim

14:33:07Paul_The_NerdThe filetree already confuses iPod users without it becoming a Filetree++ with non-file entries.

14:44:21linuxstbYes, but I agree with Paul_The_Nerd that that's different - the MMC card is a real disk with real files...
14:46:03Paul_The_NerdAlthough if the virtual folder is *only* visible while tagcache is initialized, then at least it'll only be there once users are unlikely to be confused by it.
14:46:05PaulJam_but the tagcache entrys point to real files
14:46:37Paul_The_NerdIt's not really an entrypoint to real files. In fact, at the moment the rules are fairly different while you're in TagCache since you can't insert the virtual folders into playlists, etc.

15:11:51Paul_The_NerdThey worked for me.
15:11:57B4gderfor me too
15:11:59DgentlyI get 404 errors on all of them
15:12:16chendoworked for me
15:12:28Dgentlynever mind, a reload fixed it. That was odd.
15:14:04Jungti1234Does it see?
15:14:20Jungti1234can see it?
15:16:21DgentlyYes, I can see it. Thanks for posting these.
15:17:18Paul_The_NerdIsn't the D20 a dictionary?
15:17:27Slasherilinuxstb: yes, i think there should be a way to exclude folders from both dircache and tagcache
15:17:29Jungti1234D20 is dictionary.
15:17:39Slasheribut i am not sure how the ui part should be done for that
15:17:55Slasheriargh, *directories :)
15:18:27B4gderskip the ui and use a plain config file for that
15:18:55linuxstbI agree - at least to start with. Let someone else write the UI.
15:19:03Slasheriok, that sounds good enough :)
15:19:05Paul_The_NerdJust /.rockbox/exclude/dircache.ex and tagcache.ex or something
15:19:17Paul_The_NerdOr full .cfg file support
15:19:19Paul_The_NerdThat could be okay too
15:19:21SlasheriJungti1234: user interface
15:19:27Jungti1234Isn't Rockbox's UI simple?
15:19:32Jungti1234Slasheir: I know
15:20:06SlasheriJungti1234: yes, but how one would implement selecting directories to be included/excluded from various databases
15:20:44Rob2222Can it be, that the last sector of a HD is important? That 60GB drive seems to have a bad last sector.
15:20:46Paul_The_NerdYou *could* just make it a context menu choice.

15:22:20amiconnWhy should I want to exclude dirs from the caches (if I use them)?
15:22:59linuxstbWhen SID support is added, I don't want the 32,000 file HVSC collection in tagcache.
15:23:01Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: Audiobooks/Podcasts not showing up in "All Music" lists when attempting to shuffle everything you've got by way of TagCache
15:23:19Paul_The_NerdYes, HVSC in TagCache is painful
15:24:32linuxstbAnother example is that I also have my main music collection nicely tagged, but also a collection of live bootlegs which are not. I would prefer to browse the bootlegs via the file browser, and the studio music via tagcache. I'm sure others have got directories of untagged music they would like to exclude.
15:26:59ryrandefinitely agree on that point
15:32:23amiconnAh, hmm.
15:32:50amiconnThat makes sense for tagcache then (I don't have any audiobooks or podcasts)
15:33:33amiconnBut why exclude dirs from dircache? Sounds like adding a lot of complexity for little benefit
15:34:21amiconn(dirs excluded from dircache then need to be accessed the conventional way - and the system has to keep track of these differences)

15:45:37DgentlyOn a somewhat related note, I have an Archos FMR with an 80gig drive in it. I tried initializing dircache once. It ran for a good long while (20-40min, I'm not exactly sure) and then locked up. No big deal, just thought you might want to know.
15:45:49DgentlyI figured I had too much crap on the drive for it.
15:46:44Dgentlyexcluding dirs would've been handy for me, I have a .progs dir full of data that wouldn't need to be cached.
15:46:46Paul_The_NerdDircache is kinda a bad idea on the Archoses anyway isn't it?
15:46:58Paul_The_NerdThey have fairly limited ram already
15:47:08DgentlyI didn't think it had enough memory to be useful, but I thought I'd play with it a bit.
15:47:11amiconnDircache isn't built into the archos builds
15:47:31DgentlyI ran some kind of cache initialization.
15:47:33amiconnTagcache is a different thing, and is available on archos

15:53:09ryran(back-reading) for those that use their players as portable hds with lots of non-music, I think it would be dope-a-licious to be able to exclude stuff from dircache
15:53:41 Quit damaki (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
15:53:45ryranor perhaps to have an option for it to scan directories for music files and only cache those...
15:53:54Hansmaulwurfthat would be great
15:54:17ryranbut that could still take a lot of time when you could instead just exclude..
15:54:19B4gderdircache is not for music only
15:54:33B4gderit would make no sense at all
15:54:33ryranright, but ...
15:54:45Hansmaulwurfmaybe only for "supported" files
15:54:47ryranmost people only use their players for music
15:54:47B4gderimagine a single dir with both music and non-music
15:55:07B4gderwhy would they bother to exclude anything then?
15:55:24Paul_The_NerdEven "supported only" causes a problem when you have various extensions for files that you could load in the text editor, or whatnot
15:55:51B4gderI think you're crying out for something you can't really motivate why we should offer
15:56:18ryranlol.. I just stepped in here. :D I don't really care.
15:56:36Paul_The_NerdI think TagCache needs exclusions, DirCache doesn't really
15:56:59ryranI can understand that
15:57:04ryransounds good :)
15:57:07Paul_The_NerdI mean, there's a small case for them, but it's _very_ small. :)
15:57:39ryranwhat I'd be curious to know is how much ram it actually takes to store file listings in a cache
15:57:45ryranI really have absolutely no idea
15:57:48Paul_The_NerdYou can check that in the debug menu
15:59:08Paul_The_NerdDebug menu is useful stuff. ;)

15:59:11 Part Paul_The_Nerd
15:59:17Bg3rB4gder the reasons in my eyes are that if you have some folders with a lots of small files (like pictures etc, programs, documents, code etc etc) and they are included in the dircache, then 1) they will took not so little RAM for the cache 2) the startup time will be worse
16:00:35ryranquestion: how is dircache limit determined? by platform or by available ram?
16:01:27 Join apo [0] (

16:02:39Jungti1234It wasn't easy..... :)
16:02:54Bg3rso the dircache size depends entirely on your directory structure and the count of the files on your player
16:03:08ryranthanks Bg3r, but I actually meant the *limit*

16:03:48ryranwhereas I'm only using 282,244b

21:02:32Rob2222Even more that most dos tools have problems to recognize the USB drives.
21:02:47ender`got any linux box?
21:04:43bluebrotherI think the drive fitness test of Hitachi should work as well. At least for testing.
21:05:55Rob2222have suse 10 on laptop ... but .. nor yet learned how to work with it
21:06:51ender`bluebrother: it will report problems, but doesn't allow low-level format or bad sector reallocation
21:08:37bluebrotherI know it doesn't do everything, but maybe this is already helpful
21:08:38ender`Rob2222: boot to SuSE and connect your H340
21:08:50bluebrotherfor a linux box: try knoppix :)
21:09:49ender`after you do that, open console and type dmesg, it should tell you if it recognised the HDD
21:12:23 Part Dgently
21:12:54Rob2222ok ender
21:13:16ender`(or actually, open the console before you connect the player)
21:13:26ender`(but type dmesg after you do it)
21:14:36ender`also, have both the player and laptop connected to mains, since this procedure will take a while
21:16:10Rob2222hmm, my suse seems not to boot, give me a second
21:17:10ender`no problem
21:18:23 Quit bluebrother ("Leaving")
21:20:38Rob2222do you think suse 10 will recognize a adaptec usb 2.0 pcmcia controller?
21:21:01Nibblerjust try it
21:21:21Nibblerif dmesg tells you just nothing it was not detected by linux ;-)
21:21:56Rob2222dmesg says damn much
21:22:07Nibblerjust read the last 10 linux
21:22:28Nibblerif its anyhthing about usb, sda, or harddisk
21:22:40Nibblerjust read the last 10 LINES!
21:23:03Rob2222i insart the adaptec card now
21:23:15Rob222260gb hd scan isnt fun witn usb 1.1 i think
21:23:21Nibblerhehe nope
21:23:38Rob2222what do i have to do after inserting the pcmcia?
21:23:45Nibblerdo dmesg again
21:23:53Nibblerand see if there are any new lines now
21:23:57Rob2222usb hub found
21:24:03Nibbler... :)

21:24:04Rob2222plug & play
21:24:09Rob2222now the player?
21:24:50Nibblerand in dmesg look for the device name that got assigned (should be sda, could be sdb, sdc etc)
21:25:33Rob2222yes, its sdb
21:25:50Nibblerok, so your device is /dev/sdb
21:25:50Rob2222as scsi device. mk6006gah
21:25:56ender`ok, now run this: badblocks -n /dev/sdb
21:26:18ender`if you're lucky, this'll cause the disk to relocate the bad sectors
21:26:54ender`(and you should be able to reformat the disk afterwards)
21:26:55Rob2222command not found ;)
21:27:04Rob2222i have to install, right?
21:27:08ender`install e2fsprogs
21:27:15ender`(it's part of them)
21:27:30ender`(at least on gentoo, but i'd imagine it's the same on suse)
21:28:53NibblerRob2222: are you logged in as "root"?
21:29:15Rob2222good question *duck*
21:29:28 Quit actionshrimp ("( :: NoNameScript 4.01 :: )")
21:29:28Nibblercause its most likely in /sbin or the like, and you need root access anyways for direct harddisk access :)
21:29:36ender`oh, forgot to mention that
21:29:57Rob2222according YAST it is installed.
21:30:11Nibbleryou need to be root to find it in your path...
21:30:19ender`just log in as root (or, in console, type su -)
21:30:57Rob2222ok works
21:31:32ender`now just wait and hope
21:31:39*Nibbler crosses fingers :)
21:31:44*ender` wishes somebody ported smartmontools to rockbox :)
21:31:52Rob2222does it gives me information, when a block has errors?
21:32:16Nibbleryou should use -v for that maybe
21:33:17Rob2222ok, "badblocks -c -n /dev/sdb" is now running
21:33:33ender`you mean -v -n ?
21:33:39Rob2222-c+v i mean
21:33:45Rob2222-v -n
21:35:31Rob2222well, i am positive surprised of the P&P of suse :)
21:36:36NibblerRob2222: its linux, not suse this case
