00:22:32midgey34your commit just reminded me of some bugs I saw in solataire
00:22:47sharpei wonder why...
00:22:50dionoeame too :)
00:22:53midgey34you just fixed one of them
00:23:24dionoeathe code is ... horrible ... unreadable ... far too complex compared to what it should be
00:23:31midgey34one that happens is when you win on a color target (h320 for me)
00:23:39sharpedionoea: have fun rewriting it. :)
00:23:46dionoeai'll tidy it up after 3.0 is released
00:24:01midgey34the menu is in green instead of rockbox blue
00:24:13dionoeamidgey34: oh, that would be hard to test .... since wining is kind of rare :)
00:24:32midgey34I know what you mean, I've done it like 6 times
00:24:43dionoeai'll fix it tomorrow
00:24:43midgey34out of the coutnless times I've played
00:24:49dionoeai was about to get some sleep
00:24:51LinusNtime to sleep
00:24:54LinusNnite all
00:24:56dionoeadid you have other bugs ?
00:25:00dionoeanite LinusN
00:25:01midgey34one more
00:25:02 Part LinusN
00:25:20midgey34sometimes, when you draw three cards, only the center card appears
00:25:26midgey34its only happened to me twice
00:25:34dionoeathat's weird
00:25:40dionoeai'll rewrite the plugin :)
00:25:47midgey34I think it had something to do with clearing out all three cards but I don't remember
00:26:06midgey34regardless, its a great way to pass the time as is
00:26:09PaulJamplease make a vegas mode :)
00:26:17midgey34but I need to get going too
00:26:25dionoeai wrote the initial code 2 years ago ... and it seems that my C code improved a bit since :)

02:06:38webguest32i have a quick question
02:06:49webguest32is their a way to view the wps gallery?
02:06:56webguest32since the wiki is down
02:07:11Paul_The_NerdNot at the moment, no.
02:07:15Paul_The_NerdThe files are there at the temporary mirror

02:12:35Paul_The_NerdAh yes. Not strictly *the* WPS gallery, but has quite a lot of 'em.
02:15:33joshua_Hm, so I just installed RockBox on my iPod... Is there a way to charge it without rebooting into disk mode? (i.e., from the power supply?)

02:17:26joshua_Aha. How hackable is the source? I'd like to have it do the opposite...
02:18:33Paul_The_NerdWell, it's open source and in C, so um... how hackable kinda depends on how confident you are with C.
02:18:56joshua_I mean, do I have to jump through special hoops to build it? Or will a standard ARM environment happily build it?
02:19:26Paul_The_NerdWell, we strongly recommend arm-elf-gcc 4.0 or later, I believe.
02:20:24*joshua_ tar xzvf /nfs/dashnine/var/www/doom-wads.tar.gz
02:23:39joshua_Hmm, Linux seems to suffer from some brain damage rendering it unable to copy a file containing an n-tilde to the device.
02:25:29Mikachujoshua_: man mount
02:26:41joshua_Mikachu, mount tells me that it's mounted with iocharset=utf8
02:27:06Mikachuyou also want the utf8 option
02:27:47joshua_I wonder why that's not a default in ubuntu
02:37:19jhMikeSIs it currently not possible to submit patches? Where are the links to do it?
02:38:33Paul_The_NerdThe word "Patches" at the front page, on the left?
02:39:38jhMikeSI'm there at flyspray. I'm also trying to login with my id but nothing showing up. I'm probably just being dumb or something. ^_^
02:40:03Paul_The_NerdIs it the ID you registered for flyspray, or are you trying to use a wiki or forum ID?
02:40:10joshua_Hmm, I see a usb.c .
02:40:19joshua_I assume that the drivers for the actual UDC aren't in place yet?
02:40:49jhMikeSHmmm...ok I guess I need to get yet another id. Thanks.
02:45:44earHertzlinuxstb: here?
02:53:57 Part pixelma
02:55:02Paul_The_NerdearHertz: Out of curiosity, why didn't you just rename the .c to .txt for attaching (though .c should be allowed now). Though usually the tracker is the best place for keeping any intermediate files, rather than the forums, even if they're something that will likely never get included, just as a base point for discussing an idea or testing it.
02:59:51earHertzPaul_The_Nerd: Basically because I've renamed files before, and was hoping to slyly prompt you to change teh forum settings. ;)
03:00:50 Quit foRza ()
03:01:40Paul_The_NerdI enabled .c and .h, but not .patch or .diff. Philosophically I think it's best that almost all code be kept on the tracker, but for something that's *definitely* not intended for inclusion, just as a demonstration/test for discussion, well, I'm not so sure.
03:06:03earHertzPaul_The_Nerd: I agree that "reeal" code shiould be on teh patcher. But I'd like to be avle to psot code for code revies/questions on teh forum
03:06:28Paul_The_NerdWell, as I said, you *should* be able to now. Why not go test, and let me know if it worked. ;)

03:46:16baxmaniacHi, for some reason I can't access the wiki.
03:46:27Paul_The_NerdIt's down.
03:46:45baxmaniacany idea when it should be back up?
03:46:56Paul_The_NerdIt's being worked on.
03:47:07baxmaniacok cool
03:47:10Paul_The_NerdBut I don't know if there's a prediction yet.
03:47:20FebsPaul_The_Nerd: can we disable graphic signatures in the forums? They serve no useful purpose.

03:48:19 Quit Hames ()
03:54:07Paul_The_NerdFebs: I don't see how to do that. In fact, I can't seem to find anything relating to signatures.
03:54:38 Quit jd_ ()
03:54:46FebsOh well. Thanks for trying.
03:55:44Paul_The_NerdFebs: I think signatures are simply treated by the same rules as posts (other than the capped length), so I'd have to remove images in posts entirely.
03:56:03FebsOK, we definitely don't want to do that.
03:57:00Paul_The_NerdI'm finding a few limitations in this forum software I can't seem to figure out a way around. For example, you can't say "Membergroup X has the ability to change peoples' membergroup to Y from normal members" you can only, apparently, give them full control of changing membergroups.
03:58:22Paul_The_NerdI'm still trying to learn how to bend this forum to my will.
04:00:53Paul_The_NerdThe problem is that if I allow a membergroup to assing membergroups, they can also edit them, arbitrarily creating more, etc. And while I trust the people I assign as experts, all it takes is one mistake, or one shared password, for something to go horribly wrong.
04:02:04Paul_The_NerdWhat I wanted was to create two "Expert" groups, identical as far as forumgoers can see, but one of them has some moderation abilities, and the ability to add new experts if/when necessary. A sort of Sr. Expert group.
04:02:44Paul_The_NerdThen again, if I make them a Sr. Expert, I clearly trust them a good bit, so it ought to be safe to leave them with that power.
04:02:45*Paul_The_Nerd shrugs.
04:02:52Paul_The_NerdIt's still an in-concept idea.
04:03:35 Join Sinbios [0] (
04:03:42Paul_The_NerdBut at 500 new members a month, our forums are exploding from what they were.
04:05:24sharpeinstead of senior, you could do seer.
04:05:50Paul_The_NerdWell, on the forums they'll just be labelled as "Expert" like the others.
04:07:15sharpetwas just a suggestion for their alternate name.
04:08:35Paul_The_NerdAh, I found a mod for "Group moderators" that allows you to set people as moderators of a membergroup. Which is basically what I want.
04:08:48Paul_The_NerdUnfortunately, installing mods is not a power I have.
04:09:05Paul_The_NerdAnd I'm not sure if this qualifies as necessary enough to bother the appropriate person about it.

04:17:15earHertzPaul_The_Nerd: what I'd like is a notation that indicated whether someone was a dev, an untrusted dev (like me) or a user
04:19:06Paul_The_NerdearHertz: Right now there is a developer notation, for those with commit access.
04:19:44earHertzyeah, I want for those without, like me

04:20:14sharpei'd still stay under the expert tag... hooray :)
04:20:26earHertzfor a while I assumed most forum users were devs
04:21:01Paul_The_NerdWe'd need a simple one-word name for patch authors without commit access then, so we could have a logo similar to current ones.
04:21:15sharpeContributor ?
04:21:23Paul_The_NerdContributor is difficult.
04:21:28*earHertz nods at sharpe
04:21:38Paul_The_NerdMore, breadth of the term
04:21:42earHertzPaul_The_Nerd: Coder?
04:21:49Paul_The_NerdPeople who have written one note on one wiki page are technically a contributor.
04:22:03Paul_The_NerdOne of those.
04:22:11Paul_The_NerdI think Patcher implies the power to apply patches.
04:22:17JdGordonCode Hacker...
04:22:31Paul_The_NerdMaybe Submitter?

04:23:38midkaybest of the suggestions at least..
04:23:40earHertzoh dear, you guys are young
04:24:03sharpeHacker is also a broad term...
04:24:18midkaycoder simply fits.
04:24:27midkayhacker can fit in one way, but it is quite broad.
04:24:30 Join baxmaniac [0] (
04:24:31Paul_The_NerdearHertz: Because we recognize that "Hacker" has a lot of risk when viewed by the external community, plus also if it were a bestowed badge it should be reserved for the ones who come up with the REALLY clever solutions?
04:24:54earHertzPaul_The_Nerd: yeah
04:25:12Paul_The_NerdBefore we finalize this group, we should come up with a few rules for what qualifies for entry.
04:25:21Paul_The_NerdHaving at least one patch committed?
04:25:28sharpemost likely.
04:25:45earHertzPaul_The_Nerd: for MY needs, I only care if someone has spent some time reading teh code
04:26:24sharpewhat about Composer for the name? :)
04:26:27JdGordonyay! i wont be a junior member anymore :D
04:26:39midkayJdGordon qualifies for coder most certainly :)
04:27:19Paul_The_NerdI think "Coder", with a requirement that they either have had one patch committed, as a general rule (flexible though)
04:27:46midkaylet me upload a gif..
04:27:50joshua_not being a developer, my opinion probably doesn't count for much, but were I a rockbox developer, I'd prefer "rockbox hacker"
04:28:12joshua_there's no confusion there as to "omg hax" with the rockbox qualifier
04:28:15baxmaniacErm, I just installed Rockbox and I use ipodlinux as well with IPL loader 2. but, now I when I select the apple firmware i get: File: (hd0,0/),osos Size: 50972 Type: Unknown!
04:28:25Paul_The_Nerdjoshua_: Yeah, well the core devs are already simply "Rockbox Developer"
04:28:33earHertzPaul_The_Nerd: to be fair, we should probbaly have a special name for peopel who make wpses too
04:28:43Paul_The_Nerdbaxmaniac: Did you uninstall linux before installing Rockbox, or just try to install over?
04:28:52sharpeearHertz: Themeist ?
04:28:56baxmaniacinstalled it over
04:28:57joshua_Paul_The_Nerd, aha, I didn't know that
04:28:57zekeHi Guys: hate to interrupt, but here goes..... Mmmm on the rockbox forum suggested I come here to see if I can get some help with a boot hang problem: Here's the link: If anyone has the time to check it out I would really appreciate it. Zeke
04:29:17Paul_The_Nerdbaxmaniac: How did you install it?
04:29:30sharpeooh. i can't help with the h140 problem.
04:29:42Paul_The_Nerdjoshua_: Yup, in the forums there are "Rockbox Developer" and "Rockbox Expert" groups (expert being manual writers, and people who have shown me they can give good support.)
04:29:43baxmaniacusing the color ipod manual pdf on the main page
04:29:56Paul_The_Nerdbaxmaniac: So, you used ipodpatcher and ipod_fw?
04:30:07joshua_so I think that "hacker" goes well with it, and "developer" goes to "core developer"
04:30:07earHertzsharpe: yeah,
04:30:16joshua_rockbox + those, of course
04:30:20Paul_The_Nerdbaxmaniac: Okay, did you keep the original of bootpartition.bin?
04:30:34joshua_up to you guys, of course.
04:30:51Paul_The_Nerdbaxmaniac: Okay, leave the rockbox.ipod and .rockbox on your iPod, plug it in, and do "ipodpatcher -w N bootpartition.bin" to write that file back.
04:31:02Paul_The_Nerdbaxmaniac: Loader2 SHOULD detect rockbox.ipod without you needing to have patched the bootpartition again.
04:31:07baxmaniacalright thanks
04:31:19josh_folks: on the iPod, does Rockbox run from IRAM at all?
04:31:22sharpemidkay: good to see you still have that base image around. :)
04:31:34sharpebecause, we can't find it *anywhere*
04:31:39midkayit's not a base image, it's a photoshop document..
04:31:39Paul_The_Nerdbaxmaniac: If that doesn't work, let us know
04:31:48midkaywho can't find it anywhere?
04:31:49Paul_The_Nerdjosh_: It uses some of it.
04:32:05joshua_that's interesting, there appear to be multiple me ;)
04:32:12midkayoh, gosh, that's hilarity.
04:32:20earHertzon the ipod, does our code go into SRAM or IRAM?
04:32:25josh_Paul_The_Nerd: is certain stuff linked in there specially, or what?
04:32:27josh_earHertz: I just asked :-)
04:32:27sharpeyes, hence, the phrase "hilarity ensues" fits well.
04:32:31josh_and it's SDRAM
04:32:34josh_the IRAM is SRAM
04:32:42 Quit Benacool ()
04:32:47earHertzyeah, hardware is not my forte
04:32:52Paul_The_Nerdjosh_: You need to manually assign it to IRAM I believe.
04:32:59josh_earHertz: are you doing that?
04:33:23earHertzPaul_The_Nerd: how do you do that?
04:33:24Paul_The_NerdOkay, so, suggestions for a name for the Artists?
04:33:33Paul_The_NerdearHertz: No bloody clue, honestly.
04:33:34sharpeArtist sounds fine.
04:33:46josh_earHertz: IRAM is blazing fast and uncached, so putting stuff there tends to make it faster - frees up the cache for better purposes
04:33:58*Paul_The_Nerd wishes he had FTP access to the forums.
04:34:16earHertzfrees up the cache for what, data?
04:34:17midkayPaul_The_Nerd, "artists"?
04:34:29josh_earHertz: yep
04:34:44josh_the ARM7TDMI doesn't have separate icache and dcache
04:34:45baxmaniacalright it works, one last question, can I access the playlists/songs from itunes in rockbox?
04:34:47josh_just one unified cache
04:34:48Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Artists was my suggestion, so I like it. :)
04:34:57earHertzPaul_The_Nerd: what do we put in IRAM?
04:35:01Paul_The_Nerdbaxmaniac: Songs yes, playlists no.
04:35:01josh_which means loading a TON of data at once is a bad idea, since it tends to force instructions out
04:35:04midkaywho gets it? what does it mean?
04:35:05Paul_The_NerdearHertz: It varies from codec to codec.
04:35:06sharpei agreed that it was good... :\
04:35:15Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: WPS Designers, primarily. Themers and etc.
04:35:18JdGordonmidkay: that "coder" part of the pic is almost unreadable for me.. can u change the colour ?
04:35:25josh_e.g. I once actually got a speed increase by turning a 12x-unrolled loop into an 8x-unrolled one.

04:36:06midkayif we've got like one user who's submitted one theme, though ....
04:36:17Paul_The_NerdearHertz: I really don't know. I'm not strong in a lot of parts of the code yet. In fact, I'm not even wholly sure who to ask about this one.

04:36:43josh_earHertz: ask away
04:36:47Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: If it only went to people whose themes got included in CVS, it might actually encourage people to create valid themes.
04:36:55josh_earHertz: /msg me about it if you want, I don't know if they want us talking about it here
04:36:59midkayPaul_The_Nerd, perhaps, sure..

04:37:24midkayas in.. could be even better? :)
04:37:37Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: At the very least, it's a way of saying "Thanks" to the few people who have done it. :)
04:37:39earHertzjosh_: from what I've read on ARM assembly (not ARMYTDMI specific), a branch costs about three cycles because it has to reload teh cache?
04:38:00midkayPaul_The_Nerd, sure, i'm all for it - i'm just saying (wondering aloud, more like) how many we've actually got.
04:38:26midkayJdGordon, fix your monitor - that one's certainly darker than the two images we've already got for dev and expert. :)
04:38:26Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Well, in terms of committed WPSes, not many.
04:38:55JdGordoncould be :D
04:38:58midkaymaybe a short page could explain rankings or something.. *shrugs* if only one or two people have it, most people won't really even notice it i bet, that's all.
04:39:01*Paul_The_Nerd wonders if he could convince Jeff to give him the ability to access the files for our forum.
04:39:15sharpeProbably somewhat easily...
04:39:18josh_earHertz: it's officially listed as 1N+2S
04:39:23midkayPaul_The_Nerd, if you need support, let me know :)
04:39:27Paul_The_Nerdsharpe: Last time he had me email him the files. :)
04:39:34josh_and yes, that's the cost
04:39:35sharpemaybe not then...
04:39:39josh_ld is 1I+1S+1N
04:39:47josh_st is 2N
04:39:58*Paul_The_Nerd shrugs.
04:40:02Paul_The_NerdEither way.
04:40:05sharpetis worth a try.
04:40:14josh_ldm is 1I+1S+nN, stm is (n-1)N+1S I think.
04:40:23josh_N-cycles are about twice as long as I- and S-cycles
04:40:27josh_I- and S- are about the same length
04:40:44Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: When/if I introduce the two additional membergroups I'll post in the main forum explaining each of the groups and exactly what they mean, as well as conditions for entry into them.
04:40:45midkayyou should ask him..
04:40:55midkaythat's very good.
04:41:43Paul_The_NerdAnd I will ask him, because access to the forum's files will also allow me to install the security update it keeps reminding me about, as well as the mod that lets me set moderators of membergroups.
04:41:43sharpewhy not the remaining group conditions and such, for those that wonder?
04:41:54Paul_The_NerdThe remaining group conditions?
04:42:05sharpethe already existing ones
04:42:06midkayhow about..
04:42:34sharpemidkay: what about... have something art-related on it... such as a pencil... :)
04:42:48Paul_The_Nerdsharpe: The Jr Member, Sr Member, Hero Member stuff?
04:42:48midkayhow about hell no.
04:42:56Paul_The_NerdI think keeping it just text is good.
04:42:58midkayno, developer and expert..
04:43:03sharpePaul_The_Nerd: and the Expert and developer
04:43:05Paul_The_NerdI think I'd prefer if the artists were single-color like the rest though
04:43:14midkayit's cute!!!
04:43:17Paul_The_Nerdsharpe: Oh, I was including the Expert and Developer in "each of the groups" above.
04:43:26sharpeoh. right on then.
04:43:28midkayit's fruity. rainbowy.
04:43:29JdGordonPaul_The_Nerd: moderator of membergorups? so they can add/remove members form the gorup?
04:43:34midkayit's queer and delicious.
04:43:57Paul_The_NerdJdGordon: Specifically for Experts. I want to give an expert or two the ability to invite new experts as necessary, for example.
04:44:22Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: I'd just go with the color you used for the S
04:44:56midkayPaul_The_Nerd, ah. puke-crap brown. good choice.
04:45:36midkayi'm looking at this violet-magenta and liking it.. hold on.
04:45:43Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: The I was brown, the S was purpleish
04:46:03midkayah.. then we're on the same page. :)
04:46:54Paul_The_NerdI like the badges so that people have some idea where their information is coming from. A general purpose coder definitely helps with that, and I think an Artist one will just y'know, be nice.
04:47:11Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: I think a *wee* bit more blue in that color would be nice in my book
04:47:43midkayPaul_The_Nerd, i really like the badges concept too for the same reason - i hope you didn't think i felt otherwise? :)
04:47:56sharpemidkay: because you get to make them?
04:47:57Paul_The_NerdNo, I just felt the need to restate it.
04:49:05midkaysharpe: you're just so funny. my sides.. they ache!
04:49:24sharpemidkay: yes, that's what i'm here for... comical relief...
04:49:36midkayyou mean comic relief?
04:49:51Paul_The_NerdThat's the rainbow one again
04:50:57Paul_The_NerdThat looks better to me.

05:17:45Vaco_Animusok two quick questions
05:18:51Vaco_Animus1) if i removed all the rockbox files and then installed ipod linux, if i uninstalled ipod linux at a later time could i just put the rockbox files back on and it would go to normal?
05:19:12Vaco_Animus2)does anyone here use ipod wizard?
05:20:20midkayipodwizard's homepage has a popular forum.
05:20:25 Quit Rob2222_ (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
05:21:02midkayand that doesn't make any sense, "go back to normal". you don't just "put rockbox files on" or "put ipodlinux files on" and your ipod magically sets itself up to use them..
05:21:24earHertzipod wizard? is that like ipod for the KKK?
05:21:35Vaco_Animuswell i was asking if i removed them would i have to go through all the steps again
05:21:49Vaco_Animusor could i just put them back on
05:21:54midkayyou'll probably end up installing iPL's bootloader, then you'll either choose to keep it or reinstall ours..
05:22:39sharpemidkay: do you still use that one that's customizable? :)
05:22:52Vaco_Animusthats what im asking, if i decide i dont like ipl then could i just move the rockbox files back on and it would be ready to go
05:22:55midkaysharpe, well, i haven't got around to uninstalling it yet!
05:23:05sharpeoh, of course.
05:23:10sharpewhat was i thinking...
05:23:11midkayVaco_Animus, *depending on what bootloader you choose*.
05:23:18sharpesomeone would ever actually like my work
05:23:25sharpesilly me.
05:23:36Vaco_Animusipod 5g
05:23:42midkayiPL has a bootloader, we have a bootloade.r
05:23:46midkayan ipod 5G is not a bootloader.
05:24:00midkaysharpe, nah, course not.. you went with 'wpz' so that really sucked and everybody hated it..
05:24:01sharpewe also have a special customizable bootloader
05:24:07midkayyou broke spinv so nobody cares about it..
05:24:10sharpethat only two people have..
05:24:18midkayand you gave up on c64emu so nobody likes it.
05:24:47Vaco_Animuswell if i took of ipl and put back the files from rockbox would i have to go through the install steps for rockbox again
05:25:04Vaco_Animusor would it work again if i just placed the files that i have on it now
05:25:09sharpei never broke spinv. it was broken from the beginning. :)
05:25:33midkayVaco_Animus, that's not really a valid question, since installing iPL will probably have you putting on their bootloader.
05:25:48midkayif you want iPL, go ask them for help, and if you want rockbox back, come back and tell us your situation and/or read the docs.
05:28:18sharpethat's right. throwdown midkay.

05:28:51midkay"their", stop shouting, and i've already told you, it's not a valid question.
05:29:00midkay"coming off as an asshole" indeed.
05:29:13midkayalright, you want an answer. "yes".
05:29:21Vaco_Animusthank you
05:29:24midkayyou have to "reinstall" rockbox once you "removed there bootloader".
05:29:31midkaythat makes complete and total sense.
05:29:39midkayand i can answer that with a very simple "yes".
05:30:18Vaco_Animusim saying i go onto the drive cut out the rockbox files and paste them back in at a later time
05:30:31midkayjust reinstall a daily build.
05:30:38midkaybut that's not all of what rockbox is, some files on the disk.
05:30:53midkayjust forget it, if you need specific help later, come back or don't. or just don't install iPL.
05:31:14Vaco_Animusah fuck it its not worth all the hastle of explaining this
05:31:25Vaco_Animusdo you work at radio shack midkay
05:31:35midkayyeah, how'd you know.
05:31:50Paul_The_NerdWell if you just used more used the appropriate nouns for what you are referring to, and pay attention to the terms instead of calling iPods bootloaders, you might get more understandable help.
05:32:05midkaydon't even bother with this guy.. *sighs*
05:32:07Vaco_Animusbecause you act exactly like a radioshack employee
05:32:17Vaco_Animushe asked what bootloader im using
05:32:17midkayand he actually expects comprehensive help.
05:32:19Paul_The_NerdDid you install using ipod_fw and ipodpatcher?
05:32:25Vaco_Animusim using the one for the 5g
05:32:30Vaco_Animusthe one you told me to use
05:32:38Vaco_Animusi have rockbox on
05:32:40Vaco_Animusi like it
05:32:41Paul_The_NerdThen you're using the Rockbox bootloader
05:32:52Vaco_Animusbut i want to see the dif between ipl and it
05:33:03Paul_The_NerdThe iPodLinux bootloader can also load Rockbox, so in a question involving both, it is a valid question to ask whether you're using theirs or ours.
05:33:35Vaco_Animusi was asking if i took it of my pod by cutting it trying ipl outt and removing ipl, could i just paste all my rockbox files back on and it would work
05:33:38Paul_The_NerdIn all honestly, your best bet for installing iPodLinux is to completely uninstall Rockbox (ipodpatcher -w N bootpartition.bin) first.
05:33:48Vaco_Animusor would i have to go back through and install it
05:33:54Paul_The_NerdYou have to go back through.
05:34:00Paul_The_NerdAnd oddly enough, that's the easy method.
05:34:05midkayyou can't just "cut" rockbox. nor once it's uninstalled "paste" it.
05:34:10Vaco_Animusthats what i wanted to do
05:34:27Vaco_Animuswhat is the difference between ipl and rockbox
05:34:57Paul_The_NerdGo read their site and feature list, then read ours.
05:35:11Paul_The_NerdOne is an operating system, the other is a music player firmware.
05:35:31Vaco_Animuscan you tell me if theres is more graphically appeasing then rockbox
05:36:08midkayit looks nice but it doesn't do much as far as actually using a DAP as a DAP instead of a game/demo machine. sounds perfect for you.
05:36:12Paul_The_NerdThe menus can look better than ours.
05:36:23Paul_The_NerdYeah, you probably would prefer iPL
05:36:53Vaco_Animusok does it shut down like rockbox so i can boot up in apple firmware

05:38:05Vaco_Animusbecause you guys have all been curious
05:38:08Paul_The_NerdTry #ipodlinux for questions regarding it.
05:38:21Paul_The_NerdMany of us have never installed it. Ever.
05:38:56midkaywe aren't curious as to how "cool" our ipods can look visually or how many games we can stuff on it.
05:39:09buzzardguys i have a question i had installed the custome rockbox pack and when i try to play mp3's it gives me an error stating codec error
05:39:13midkaywe want something that works and works well for what the DAP was designed for. music playback.
05:39:30midkayget a gameboy or something. sheesh.
05:39:36Paul_The_Nerdbuzzard: Being a "custom" build, you need to ask whoever made it. It's unofficial

06:22:35Vaco_Animuswhy not
06:22:41Vaco_Animusthats being friendly
06:22:48Vaco_Animusyou have similar interests

06:29:05Paul_The_NerdThis means that they've followed the instructions, and have picked up the terms from them, so that they can ask clear and concise questions such as "I've tried installing, but ipodpatcher.exe tells me that the firmware is too large for the bootpartition." Several proper nouns, and a clear stating of the problem telling us where they're actually having problems.
06:29:07Jungti1234There is no reason to get angry to him.
06:29:16midkayVaco_Animus, well, you're honestly very clueless.
06:29:19Vaco_Animusor when you do you act like im asking you for a liver instead of a yes or no answer
06:29:28Vaco_Animuswhy do you think im asking?
06:29:33Vaco_Animusio know nothing of ipods
06:29:38Vaco_Animusand i needed help
06:29:52midkayVaco_Animus, and the funny thing is that when you do get your question answered you get all upset over the wording or suggestion..
06:29:52Jungti1234Strange guys...
06:30:24Vaco_Animusbecause you expect concise questions but you cant return concise answers
06:31:06midkayyou asked a question, got an answer and a suggestion, and got pissed because you were offered such a suggestion.. several times. just in case you're wondering why nobody likes or wants to help you.
06:31:32Paul_The_NerdVaco_Animus: You also have typed in all caps, and repeated questions more than once even when someone has attempted to help you.
06:32:41Vaco_Animuswho has attempted
06:32:46Paul_The_NerdNot this question
06:32:50Paul_The_NerdBecause you're asking in the wrong place.

06:33:46Paul_The_NerdIf it's phrased in a way you don't understand, then ask about whatever part you didn't get, and state clearly why you didn't understand it.
06:34:03Paul_The_NerdWe don't intentionally phrase answers to be cryptic. We state them in the way we feel is the best way to state them.
06:34:14Paul_The_NerdAnd in fact, on average, people understand what we say to them.
06:34:19midkayand not like "JUST TELL ME THE ANSWER ALREADY".
06:35:32Vaco_Animusthe only time i type in caps is when you are telling me stuff i don't know and i am saying it in that manner so that maybe you will get the point of what im trying to make
06:35:55Paul_The_Nerd"Just tell me the answer already" is very different from "I don't understand what you mean by that."
06:35:56midkaycaps just makes people dislike you (even more than they already do) and not want to help.
06:36:03Paul_The_Nerd"Just tell me the answer already" means that you think you haven't been given it.

06:37:28Jungti1234stop Paul :)
06:37:46Vaco_Animuswell you are putting words in my mouth
06:39:14Paul_The_NerdWhat you have specifically done is re-asked the same question in all caps when someone was already trying to answer it.
06:39:40Vaco_Animuswho was trying to answer honestly
06:39:48Vaco_Animusyou say read it yourself
06:39:56Vaco_Animuswhen it is a yes or no question
06:40:04Vaco_Animusand someone knows the answer to
06:40:34Paul_The_NerdMidkay tried to answer you honestly regarding the bootloader, but first he had to ask you some questions because you were using terms incorrectly so he didn't know what you meant
06:40:46Paul_The_NerdInstead of taking it as an attempt to answer, you got offended, and yelled the question again.
06:41:00Vaco_Animusand i thought for the bootloader he meant for which ipod
06:41:09Vaco_Animusand he taunted me for it after that
06:41:17Paul_The_NerdNo, he said the 5G is not a bootloader.
06:41:23Vaco_Animusso i got mad because all im trying to do is learn
06:41:26Paul_The_NerdWhich should rather clearly tell you that's not what he was asking.
06:42:04Paul_The_NerdVaco_Animus: He specifically said "an ipod 5G is not a bootloader." as well as telling you that iPL has a bootloader and we have a bootloader so you'd know what distinction he was making
06:42:07Paul_The_NerdI'm reading the log right now.
06:42:19Vaco_Animuswell i left the chat but he said a comment about how i couldnt understand because im a guy who thinks 5g is not a bootloader
06:44:07Paul_The_NerdI'm not spotting him saying the word "Understand" at all.
06:44:32Vaco_Animusits not a direct quote
06:44:37Vaco_Animusbut it was around that
06:45:00Paul_The_NerdI don't really see anything similar to that.
06:45:55Paul_The_NerdHe doesn't say anywhere that you couldn't understand, or anything very similar to it at all.
06:46:40Paul_The_NerdI would suggest in the future that you try to assume the best of people trying to help you, and even if they do seem impolite, don't get offended, as if they are honestly trying to help, and you start being a jerk, they'll return the attitude.
06:47:07Paul_The_NerdMany people here assume at least some decent level of technical proficiency simply because you're installing an alternative firmware on an MP3 player.
06:47:34Vaco_Animusto be honest the only decent person here is linux
06:47:43Vaco_Animusor who at least shows it
06:47:52Paul_The_NerdI tried to help you with the CVS issue as well
06:48:15Vaco_Animusyah but you gave up
06:48:25Paul_The_NerdBecause I didn't have any more ideas.
06:48:30Paul_The_NerdAm I supposed to lie and make stuff up?
06:48:52Paul_The_NerdIf you fault someone for saying "I can't fix it" then 6 billion people are also at fault for not helping you with your CVS issues.
06:49:05Vaco_Animuswell im not saying you were wrong for helping but linux researched it while helping me
06:49:15Vaco_Animusand understood that i didnt understand
06:50:10Paul_The_NerdWell, here are some things you need to understand:
06:50:35Paul_The_Nerd1) People will try to help you, but in most cases the answers will start technical. Say "I don't understand what you're trying to explain" rather than repeating the question.
06:51:02Paul_The_Nerd2) If people ask you questions, no matter how they're phrased, it's best to assume that they merely have poor social skills, and are just trying to find out more about your problem, not making fun of you for not knowing how to ask a question.
06:51:22Paul_The_Nerd3) Ask questions in the appropriate place. This means not coming to the #rockbox channel to ask about software that we do not make or support.
06:52:17Paul_The_NerdTrying as hard as possible to ask clear questions that _show_ you've tried to do the work yourself first, and asking the questions in the right place, are considered nearly essential etiquette in open source projects.
06:52:36Paul_The_NerdIn fact, while midkay was less than polite with you, in some place you'll get a much worse reception than even here.
06:53:36MrStaticVoidreminds me of
06:54:46Paul_The_NerdMrStaticVoid: That link is in my forum signature, actually. :)
06:55:07MrStaticVoidoh, i havent noticed
06:55:18MrStaticVoidit should be the topic :-D
06:55:20Paul_The_NerdI don't think many people in the forums have. Hehehe
06:56:02Jungti1234my way of thinking is different from you..... Also..
07:00:00joshua_MrStaticVoid, the other neat thing is (loading; I wish firefox would give me the bookmark while it was loading...)
07:01:10joshua_hmm, so my ipod has been sitting connected to the PC for power, sitting in hold mode for the past couple hours
07:01:15joshua_(paused, untouched)
07:01:26joshua_yet, it didn't go into sleep mode.. idle poweroff is set for 10m, though.
07:01:33joshua_battery appears not to have charged any, either.
07:02:39Paul_The_NerdWhich ipod have ye?
07:04:15Paul_The_NerdRight now the iPods only draw I believe 100mah from USB while in Rockbox, so some of them don't charge.
07:04:52Paul_The_NerdIt also won't ever go into sleep mode while charging, I believe. Which is actually a good thing, because if it did, it'd immediately reboot into either disk mode, or if hooked up to a wall charger, continual rebooting
07:05:01Paul_The_NerdMy Nano charges fine.
07:05:08joshua_yeah, I get continual rebooting with a wall charger if I plug it in without holding menu.
07:05:20Paul_The_NerdThe real best way to charge is to load the AppleOS
07:05:22Paul_The_NerdNot even disk mode.
07:05:26Paul_The_NerdBut the real Apple OS
07:06:00joshua_I tried to compile a rockbox that didn't require me to hold menu, but the .got section evidently overlapped .text, according to the linker
07:06:04joshua_hmm, how do I boot the apple OS?
07:06:35Paul_The_NerdShut down the iPod. Turn it on by pressing the Menu button, and continue holding it until you see "Loading Original Firmware..."
07:06:41Paul_The_NerdTry not to wiggle your finger and trigger scrolls.
07:07:11joshua_looking for shut down...

07:11:22JdGordonno im pretty sure its a configure option.. so its there
07:11:26JdGordonno idea how to use it tho
07:11:33joshua_does the UI run as a thread that can be ripped out like other segments (just compiled in)?
07:11:59JdGordoni tinhk so
07:12:34joshua_lots of interesting metrics to be taken to increase performance.
07:12:44joshua_I wonder if the display has anything wacky like double-buffering to reduce tearing.

07:59:17|apo|I'm using rockbox to get away from iTunes, because it's a horrible software
07:59:22Paul_The_NerdiTunes support?
07:59:35Harrywats wrong with itunes
07:59:37Paul_The_NerdFiletree is pretty darn easy to handle.
07:59:44Paul_The_NerdAs well, TagCache can index your iTunes music
08:00:07Harrybut it does organize it like itunes
08:00:10Harrydoes it
08:00:15midkayPaul_The_Nerd, just.. your incredible patience with which you assist some people.. :)
08:00:23Paul_The_NerdWhat do you even mean by "organize it like iTunes?"
08:00:35Paul_The_NerdiTunes doesn't run on your iPod anyway, so the music on your iPod isn't organized like iTunes either
08:00:37Harrydrag and drop
08:00:46Harryeasy to make playlist
08:01:00Paul_The_NerdYou can make playlists on the player itself, very easily.
08:01:11|apo|And even name them
08:01:15Harrywat tagcache
08:01:16|apo|Not on the go 1232134
08:01:18Paul_The_NerdAs well, it supports M3U playlists, which nearly every music program supports.
08:01:31Harrypaul hmm
08:01:36midkayit's too bad he gave you no credit for the long time you spent trying to help him yesterday or so..
08:01:51Harrylong time
08:01:56Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: I get no credit because I couldn't *solve* the problem. The effort doesn't count unless it concludes with a solution.
08:02:10Paul_The_NerdHarry: He's not talking about you.
08:02:21midkayHarry, no, sorry, not you.
08:02:29Paul_The_NerdHarry: Anyway, if you don't like Rockbox, don't use it, but iTunes support is very unlikely. There's really no reason for it.
08:02:36Harrypaul ill try it again
08:02:45Paul_The_NerdAs it is, TagCache can show your songs in Artist/Album/Genre view anyway.
08:02:47Harrywats tagcache
08:03:10Harryand how do i shut off ipod
08:03:19Paul_The_NerdHold Play/Pause
08:03:32Harrybut that puts into sleep
08:03:41midkayPaul_The_Nerd, yeah, i suppose.. also as to my "less than polite" behavior (thanks for the not-so-harsh way of putting it) - he's talked to me over AIM several times in the past week or more, asking for the most obvious Doom/pacbox questions that are all in the wiki and stuff like that..
08:03:42Paul_The_NerdNo, in Rockbox it shuts it off.
08:04:07Harryrockbox it does
08:04:14Harrybut no apple os
08:04:16Paul_The_NerdHarry: Well, this is the *Rockbox* channel
08:04:25Paul_The_NerdSo if you don't specify that you're in AppleOS we kinda assume you're in Rockbox
08:04:47Paul_The_NerdAppleOS doesn't feature shutting down.
08:04:58Paul_The_NerdThe closest you've got is holding Menu+Select to reboot.
08:05:52Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: In his small defense, the wiki was down recently, but I really don't see anything wrong with his behaviour. You seemed (from my perspective) to try at first, and then lose patience with him. At least you tried.
08:06:37Paul_The_NerdYes Harry?
08:06:41Harryhow do i install ipl loader
08:06:45midkayPaul_The_Nerd, yeah, when he asked me about all that, the wiki was still up.. it was days before..
08:06:52Harrysince its better
08:07:04Paul_The_NerdHarry: 1) I don't think it's better. 2) Ask that in #ipodlinux

08:07:54Harrypaul is ipl anygood have u tried it
08:07:55Paul_The_Nerdagne: Search for the website as normal (go to google, type keyword), then just click the "cached" link under the one you want.
08:08:04Paul_The_NerdHarry: It's not very good for music playing at all.
08:08:19Harrydoes it play video

08:29:15amiconnSlasheri: I don't think the fix you committed is a clean solution. Something causes tc.dirlevel to loose track, which needs to be found & fixed.
08:39:06Slasheriamiconn: yep, i also think this as a temporary solution
08:39:52Slasherii think adding the virtual dir support and redesigning the tagcache browsing code might fix that
08:41:43amiconnHmm. A comment would be helpful for later
08:42:42JdGordon:) u added my band-aid fix
08:43:16amiconnI think the tagcache browsing code looses track of tc.dirlevel under the observed conditions, i.e. when tagcache isn't initialised
08:44:47amiconnThe virtual dir won't happen too soon because it has some implementation implications. The multivolume virtual dirs are handled at the filesystem level, so the question remains how to hook a tagcache virtual dir as tagcache is application level
08:46:06amiconnOtoh, if we find a solution, the tagcache virtual dir will probably solve the problem with tagcache and playlists - tagcache will behave like a virtual file system

11:00:20linuxstbearHertz: I've been reading your lcd_update discussions (ipod video). Yes, the Rockbox lcd_update_rect() function is in IRAM - this is done with the ICODE_ATTR macro which tells the linker to put the code in the .icode section. The startup code in crt0.S will then copy it IRAM when Rockbox is started.

11:42:38Loeckchenmy ipod doesn't mount
11:42:44JdGordon can be closed ye? there has been a remote lock icon for ages
11:44:15peturafaicr, yes
11:44:36Loeckchenoh does rockbox not work with firewire?
11:44:43Loeckchenit only mounts on usb
11:45:15Loeckchengotta get an usb2.0 hub then
11:45:23peturdoesn't rockbox use the original ipod firmware for connecting?
11:45:46peturmaybe we don't detect the firewire connection being made
11:46:24Loeckchenhow do i switch off rockbox?
11:46:37Loeckchenoh the same as the original f/w
11:47:35LoeckchenOK it does only mount on USB
11:47:45Loeckchenwith firewire, it gets switched on but boots into rockbox
11:49:50amiconnLoeckchen: You can switch to disk mode manually
11:50:07amiconnReboot the ipod, and while it's booting, press Select+Play
11:50:28amiconnAnd yes, we don't detect firewire connections (yet)
11:52:50Loeckchenokay, thanks
11:53:16Loeckcheni have now made an fstab entry on my server box for /dev/sdc2 which is always my ipod
11:53:27Loeckchenso a user can mount it on /media/ipod
11:53:38Loeckchenand use a cp -Ruf to copy over the music
11:54:17_FireFly_Loeckchen: you could also use a udev rule (if you have udev running) to name the dave /dev/ipod* :)
11:54:32Loeckchenit's ubuntu dapper amd64-xeon

16:20:20linuxstb_Did you read my comments (about 11am this morning) about IRAM?
16:20:51earHertzok, in assembly, I use this: .section .icode,"ax",%progbits
16:21:01earHertzthat shoudl put the code in teh icode section, yes?
16:21:22linuxstb_I did some IRAM experiments a while ago, and posted a patch here:
16:21:47earHertzand in teh c code, I keep the icode on lcd_update_rect, but took it OFF the actuiual C function called
16:22:14earHertzso I'm thinking, teh asm ran in IRAm and teh c didn't
16:22:32earHertzwhich makes teh results even more confusing
16:22:46linuxstb_Easiest thing is to check the file - to see which sections the functions were put.
16:23:45earHertzlinuxstb_: your patch says you got better speed by NOT using IRAM??
16:24:25linuxstb_74% boost with both icode and idata, 75% boost with only idata, and 90% boost with no IRAM use.
16:24:45linuxstb_i.e. icode only gives a tiny improvement - so it seems better to use IRAM for data instead of code.
16:25:08linuxstb_(we only have 96KB of IRAM - 48KB for core Rockbox, 48KB for codecs/plugins)
16:25:18earHertzfor mp3 data
16:25:33linuxstb_In fact, we have 128KB on some targets (Nano, 5g, 2nd Gen mini) - but I don't think we use it.
16:25:38earHertzwhat do you mean by "boost"?

16:36:40linuxstb_earHertz: Whilst you're looking at ASM optimisations, the ATA driver would probably benefit from them - the functions to read/write sectors are ASM-optimised for SH-1 and Coldfire, but not ARM. It's vaguely similar to memcpy, but the source of reads (and destination of writes) is a constant address (a 16-bit memory-mapped hardware register).
16:37:30earHertzlinuxstb_: in that case it's virtually the same as teh lcd (destination of writes is 16 bit)
16:37:51earHertzSo if we figure out teh best lcd, the ata stuff should fall out from that

16:56:47linuxstb_I'm not 100% sure, but I would guess that the LCD drivers have all been developed from disassembling the ipod diagnostic mode code from flash, rather than retailos itself. So maybe retailos does things better.
16:57:56peturso now the pp code has been cracked RE will give us better code?
16:58:20amiconnapple_os.bin isn't encrypted according to linuxstb
16:59:15amiconnI did not yet find out the load address / entry point of the image. As soon as I have that I'll feed apple_os.bin through ida pro
16:59:54linuxstb_The load address and entry point of the image are in the header. I think they're both 0x10000000.
17:01:01linuxstb_i.e. the part of apple_os.bin which contains the exception vectors should be loaded to 0x10000000, everything before the exception vectors should be discarded.
17:01:25 Part LinusN
17:01:27linuxstb_But then that code probably remaps RAM to 0x00000000 in the same way as Rockbox does, so I don't know how IDA Pro would handle that.

17:20:28earHertzipl devs will tell you there are no specs on teh broadcomm chip
17:20:57earHertzeven if e got data to the broadcomm, how would we control what the broadcomm did with it?
17:21:17peturbut they will most probably have been looking at the disassembly too
17:22:12earHertzbroadcomm takes data in 16 bits (or 8), so I'm guessing teh retail os sends a bunch of data to the broadcomm (which has its own mmeory) and then the broadcomm memeory maps the lcd

17:42:39Slasheriamiconn: i got an idea how the virtual fs for tagcache could be done. At first tagcache could request firmware level to bind its hooks, for example vfs_bind("/tagcache", callback_routine); Then when trying to open dir /tagcache, the handler inside tagcache viewer would be called. And for open, delete etc. appropriate handlers would be called to retrieve the real filename. For example delete("/tagcache/artist/album/08. song"); would first ...
17:42:45Slasheri... callback tagcache handler to retrieve that filename, then do the desired function at real system level delete and finally callback tagcache to handle the delete.

18:26:05linuxstb_I didn't understand that feature request at all. Part of me thought he was referring to the iriver firmware - because he said you can't record from the tuner.

18:27:27bluebrothertoo bad.
18:29:20bluebrothernow I've got a mail (stupid "reply to all" in outlook express, but I guess rockbox-sf won't accept mails from outside) and he calls it exactly the way he would have implemented it

18:31:53bluebrother> After being tonguelashed by another bluebrother for not "getting" the iRiver navigation system
18:32:11linuxstb_So is he talking about the iriver firmware?
18:32:35bluebrotherI'm not sure if he refers to me, but I don't know of any other bluebrother on the rockbox project
18:33:05bluebrothera bit later he talks about rockbox. It's completely confusing.

21:25:44linuxstb_earHertz: No. My understanding is that retailos is unencrypted, but the contents of the flash (as stored in the firmware partition) are.
21:26:47linuxstb_This seems to be the opposite to the standard PortalPlayer scheme - where the bootloader is clear, and the firmware (.mi4) is encrypted.

21:39:59Paul_The_Nerddionoea: I don't think there will be a further release date estimation, so much as a "Oh, yeah, it's done" type statement at some point.
21:40:07rasherAnd that afaik should be iirc
21:40:29dionoeaPaul_The_Nerd: any idea when that might happen ? are there many release critical bugs left ? other things to do ?
21:41:51linuxstb_dionoea: I don't recall any discussion of the release recently. But from what I can tell, voice seems the biggest issue left.

21:42:29Paul_The_NerdYup, still voice and playback.
21:42:30dionoeavoice as in voice menus ?
21:42:40*amiconn admits that he didn't use rockbox much on the swcodec units recently, for those exact reasons
21:42:41Paul_The_NerdYes, and talk clips.

21:43:47linuxstb_I exclusively use swcodec now, and am very happy. But I don't use voice at all.

21:44:00ForEveryHeartrockbox is the program that will allow me to hear what music files i have on there correct? like it will say the name of them?
21:44:02XavierGralso v2lang localization
21:44:18XavierGranother matter is default font screens with non roman languages
21:44:52Paul_The_NerdForEveryHeart: It is necessary that you prepare .talk clips for the names of your files.
21:45:20ForEveryHeartokay so would i need a microphone for that?
21:45:47rasherForEveryHeart: there are scripts to prepare the .talk clips using text-to-speech engines
21:46:03rasherWhich is probably more reasonable if you have more than 10 songs

22:32:15afruffit's ok, since the wiki is down
22:32:18midkaybut actually no.
22:32:31Paul_The_NerdYou only lose your settings if the config version has changes
22:32:34midkayno new features have been put in since it's the freeze, so you're fine.
22:32:45Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: The config block has changed once or twice during freeze though.
22:32:59midkayyeah, but i know it hasn't in the past, like, 2 weeks.
22:33:02Paul_The_NerdChanging the options relating to TagCache for example
22:33:25Paul_The_NerdWe've know his tagcache menu is out of date, so it probably will clear his settings
22:33:31midkayit is?
22:33:39PaulJami think the config version was increased just yesterday, so save a config file
22:33:39afruffyea, it's udner playback
22:33:56midkayhow old is that build? must be like a month then.
22:34:18afruffabout 2 motnhs
22:34:44afruffI'm not really worried about losing settings, but losing my database
22:35:04midkayyour db is never erased by rockbox.
22:35:21midkayyou can still avoid a settings reset, really, by writing a CFG file and reloading it after the update.
22:35:23Paul_The_NerdBut there are occasionally version changes of TagCache that have required a rebuild, right?
22:35:59afruffthere are several veryrecent tagcache changes
22:37:08midkayPaul_The_Nerd, i don't believe that we've ever had an update that requires a rebuild.. i may be wrong, though.
22:37:24midkaytagcache changes in general are fine.

22:41:18Paul_The_NerdTagCache is not DirCache...
22:41:53afruffso the only way to make it autoupdate in tagacache is to store in RAM
22:42:01Paul_The_NerdAlso, you said you were using a 2 month out of date build. Does the auto-update in TagCache not work for you with a recent build?
