#rockbox log for 2006-07-28

00:00:14barrywardellwhen I try to access it in any way. eg. when i fun mkfs, or fdisk
00:00:29barrywardellup until then, it is ok
00:00:32Bagderthat sounds seriously screwed
00:01:16dionoeado they provide a recovery mode ?
00:01:18amiconnDoes that only happen with th H10, or maybe also other UMS devices?
00:01:41barrywardellit's the recovery mode that i'm trying
00:01:44*amiconn remembers a few people talking about linux' USB system acting up
00:02:05Bagderin the sansa's recovery mode, it comes up paritionless
00:02:06dionoeai rmmod ehci_usb before plugin my ipod to my laptop
00:02:12Bagderand I need to mount the "root" device
00:02:16barrywardellamiconn: i've just tried it on linux, macos and windows 2000
00:02:44Bagderie, not mount sda1 as usual but plain sda

00:07:12barrywardellwhenever I try to access sda at all it seems to reset the usb connection
00:07:44webguest38Hello again, there was a forum post earlier about contrast issues on the latest build - I'm still experiencing the problem even though someone said they'd fixed it, any ideas?
00:08:01dionoeabarrywardell: that happens every time if i keep ehci_hcd loaded in linux. Don't know if that helps though
00:10:06Bagderand as amiconn asked, does other UMS devices still work?
00:11:31barrywardellnot sure. don't have any other UMS devices with me
00:11:42barrywardellbut I have tried it on 3 different computers
00:12:07dionoeamaybe the batteries are too low
00:12:11dionoea(just guessing)
00:13:07barrywardellit's a possibility, but I don't think so
00:13:13barrywardellit charges by usb
00:14:20barrywardellthis is very frustrating
00:14:21dionoeathe archos recorder used to discharge when the disk was spining even if you had the power cord plugged in
00:14:48 Join XavierGr [0] (
00:16:12barrywardelli suppose i could just leave it to charge for a while
00:17:27barrywardellnormally a "low battery" warning comes up though
00:18:09dionoeadid you do anything special like try a new hacked firmware ? :)
00:18:53barrywardellit was definitely my own fault. I was using a modified Rockbox bootloader
00:19:25barrywardellit wasn't really anything I hadn't done several times before though

00:25:58*barrywardell checks his warranty and finds it runs out on the 30th of July
00:26:07dionoeamaquis: what player do you have ?
00:26:19maquisdionoea: i've got a 1st gen. ipod mini
00:26:38dionoeatry stuff like holding menu or select+menu
00:26:54maquismenu was what i was trying first
00:26:54dionoea(at least that's how i do it on the ipod video)
00:26:58maquisit worked on a few...
00:27:02maquisselect worked on some others
00:27:06dionoeasome need the combo
00:27:22maquisok.. i'll try the combo
00:27:58maquisdionoea: looks like that was the problem..... :) thanks!

01:06:55filR220 euros? oO
01:06:59BockBilboi know.. mine doesnt have a cassette adapter
01:07:18filRwell, fm transmitters are illegal here in austria. but you can get them on ebay rather cheap.
01:07:18BockBilboi was thinking on getting a fm tuner, but not sure if the quality would be good enough
01:07:45Bagderfm transmit is the worst quality solution but decent enough for in-car use imho

01:10:19BockBilbobecause i bet the official vw addapter is just a cable that on real conditions should cost just like 3 euros or so
01:10:38filRi would try adding a line in cable to the (back of the) radio. if you don't feel like doing it yourself, i would ask at the auto shop.
01:10:45filRnormally it is rather easy and inexpensive. :)
01:11:05BockBilboperhaps the guy that has sell me the car is a good friend of my mother
01:11:08filRthe golf does have default sized radios, right?

02:25:23Paul_The_NerdSo your question is...?
02:25:28 Join linuxstb [0] (n=linuxstb@rockbox/developer/linuxstb)
02:25:41Paul_The_NerdCan we safely assume then that you haven't read the install directions?
02:25:45task0how do i install to mi ipod nano
02:25:49Paul_The_NerdJdGordon: He needs IpodPort, or more specifically IpodInstallation
02:26:01Paul_The_NerdOr at the very least, simply read the manual
02:26:15JdGordonhehe, woops, im still half aslweep obviously
02:26:18k8towhen i read the manual recently, it seemed to make sense
02:26:39k8tothere was a nice chapter about installation
02:26:51Paul_The_NerdWe try to keep the manual useful, yeah. :)
02:27:04k8tomy complements to the authors
02:27:08Paul_The_NerdThere's a few really dedicated guys who've done a ton of work on it.
02:27:49task0are daily buid ok, or should wait for a final rls?
02:27:53k8totask0: is one set of information
02:28:07k8totask0: although i have read that the manual is more up to date (for some reason?)
02:28:22midkayprobably easier to read..
02:28:45midkaydivided more clearly into sections and device-specific as well as clear sections of "code" versus plaintext.
02:29:29Paul_The_Nerdk8to: The manual isn't really more up to date necessarily. But you get installation instructions specific for your device, so there's less likelihood of confusion from the "If you have iPod5G, do this extra step too" and stuff.
02:29:35Paul_The_NerdAs midkay said
02:29:50Paul_The_Nerdtask0: If you want to wait for a final release for iPod, it's going to be a long while yet.
02:30:18midkayaka - daily builds are the only thing available and they work fine. or usually do.
02:30:24task0is there eny recomndable build?
02:30:34midkaythe latest daily.
02:30:48Paul_The_NerdDaily or CVS
02:30:59Paul_The_NerdStatistically speaking, a CVS build should be as stable as a daily.
02:31:18task0is the WORST thing that could happen is, loose all mi music and have to resptores using apple restore?
02:31:23midkaywho let the build table go to hell? :)
02:31:35Paul_The_Nerdtask0: Actually, as long as you do things the right way it can't even get that bad.
02:32:07Paul_The_Nerdtask0: Follow the steps carefully, and keep the bootpartition.bin file that you originally extract, and the worst thing that can happen is that you decide you don't like it and uninstall, or can't get it working and uninstall.
02:32:47task0uninstall = use apple restore?
02:33:36 Quit spiorf ("Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer)")
02:33:41k8tois apple restore ever a damaging operation?
02:33:42Paul_The_NerdYou should never need to use apple restore, so long as you keep the bootpartition.bin file around
02:33:56task0if that goes wrong?
02:34:04Paul_The_NerdIf what goes wrong?
02:34:16task0the original bootpartition.bin
02:34:20Paul_The_Nerdk8to: Apple Restore destroys the contents of your disk. It's a full reformat. I consider that *always* damaging
02:34:30Paul_The_Nerdtask0: A noun can't go wrong...
02:34:52task0i mean if i fuckd up the booting
02:35:02 Quit TCK (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
02:35:08Paul_The_NerdI still don't quite get what you're asking.
02:35:30task0worst case scenario
02:35:49dwihnoworst case, you break the boot partition and need to restore it using the apple thing
02:35:52Paul_The_NerdAs I said, as long as you follow our instructions, the worst case scenario is you have to write bootpartition.bin back.
02:36:05midkayconflicting messages! :o
02:36:14dwihnowell, either way works
02:36:27Paul_The_NerdIf you for some stupid reason delete the file, or it somehow becomes corrupt on your disk, THEN you have to restore, but this almost requires hardware failure or you choosing to delete it.
02:36:38midkayapple restore = wipe disk. restore bootpartition = uninstall rockbox.
02:36:40midkayquite different. :)
02:36:48Paul_The_NerdHardware failure is always a worst case scenario, but not one we should ever bother with.
02:36:59Paul_The_NerdI mean, your iPod could randomly melt. Not something we can take steps to prevent.
02:37:03midkayPaul_The_Nerd: can't you just go back to the updater and "update" to erase Rockbox?
02:37:16Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: You can only update if your Apple firmware version isn't current.
02:37:26midkaymight need to use iPodWizard to trick the updater into thinking your firmware version isn't current, so..
02:37:29Paul_The_NerdIf it is current, you have to use external tools to change the version string, or something
02:37:44Paul_The_NerdIt's a LOT easier just to "ipodpatcher -w 1 bootpartition.bin" and be done with it.
02:37:46midkayright, but restoring isn't necessary in such a case. optional.
02:38:06midkayright, but "If you for some stupid reason delete the file, or it somehow becomes corrupt on your disk, THEN you have to restore, but this almost requires hardware failure or you choosing to delete it." - or, use iPodWizard to fool the updater and just update.
02:38:14midkayjust hope that's clear, restoring isn't necessary in such a state.
02:38:19Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: True, but if you're using ipodwizard you can also extract the bootpartition from it, I believe.
02:38:30midkayhm? not afaik..
02:38:36midkayfrom "it"?
02:38:49Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Using Ipodwizard you can get an apple firmware image for your player from the updater.
02:39:04midkayindeed? i've never seen such an option.
02:39:13Paul_The_NerdThis is what I've been told, by many people
02:39:22Paul_The_NerdMaybe not iPodWizard. There's *some* tool to extract it.
02:39:44Paul_The_NerdAnyway, the real issue is: If you bork up the contents of your boot partition, there may not be a recognizable firmware there for the Apple tool to upgrade.
02:40:04Paul_The_NerdBut if you have the bootpartition.bin file, as long as the partition table still exists, you can dd or ipodpatcher it back into place.
02:40:31midkayhm.. either way, anyways. restoring may not be necessary even in the "worst-case" scenario.
02:41:11Paul_The_NerdRestoring should never be necessary unless you've like, deleted the partitions on your disk.
02:41:21Paul_The_NerdAt which point you've essentially already lost the files.
02:41:25midkay.. thus, the worst case scenario. :)
02:41:43amiconnKeeping the mbr somewhere even helps when the partition table was trashed
02:41:49task0ok, but restoring wil ALLWAYS repair eny thing i do with firmeware, boot loader, files, partitons, etc??
02:41:53amiconn...or should help
02:42:28***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
02:42:32Paul_The_Nerdtask0: There is nothing that is done in relation to Rockbox and the iPod that the restore tool cannot undo.
02:42:54task0in simple english?
02:43:10scorche"yes" =)
02:43:12Paul_The_NerdWell, I can't answer yes to your question.
02:43:42Paul_The_NerdBecause there's plenty of things YOU could do to the firmware that the Restore Tool can't deal with.
02:44:01Paul_The_NerdIf you ever managed to figure out how to flash a replacement image removing the emergency disk mode, for example.
02:44:13Paul_The_NerdThese are things that you would have to probably put in some programming effort to achieve.
02:44:34midkayhave WE even discovered that yet? :)
02:44:35Paul_The_NerdBut I can't in good conscience lie to you and say it's physically impossible for you to harm your iPod beyond the ability of restore to save it.
02:44:47task0ok, dount count that
02:44:47Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Nope.
02:44:58Paul_The_Nerdtask0: But, as I said, there is nothing that is done in relation to Rockbox on the iPod that restore can't fix.
02:45:03midkayso it's more likely to vanish in thin air and reappear in tokyo six days later.
02:45:04Paul_The_NerdI think that's pretty plain English.
02:45:13task0midkay: lol
02:45:29task0that is ok
02:45:32midkay.. while you're listening to it.
02:45:41midkay... and the music will play on whilst it's not there.
02:45:48midkayso. yeah.
02:45:52midkayi hope that's pretty clear as well.
02:46:03task0it's magic
02:46:13midkaynow you've got it.
02:47:29task0something i noticied
02:47:38task0i have an unnalocated part of the dis

03:04:44midkayum. what model?
03:04:48midkayi think it does for H100s.
03:04:49FebsBigMac: Helping is fine, but you don't need to bump every thread in the forum.
03:05:12midkayiriver H100? what model have you got?
03:05:19RosethornniPod G4
03:05:25midkayah. might work. not sure..

03:08:10Rosethornnhee. I feel so powerful when I do things I don't understand in the Command Box. :D :P
03:08:19BigMaci just finished watching my ipod video on my tv. that wigged me out so much i had to sit down, an that led to posting
03:08:41BigMacscorche: because all the kool kats on the forum always saying something at the bottom of there posts
03:08:42midkayhaha Rosethornn.
03:08:59BigMacJulius always says cheers

03:09:21Rosethornnit's doing things it shouldn't! I feel so proud!
03:09:27BigMaci tried others but like that best
03:09:45Rosethornnis it meant to look and work exactly like it normally does?

03:10:42scorcheit helps =)
03:11:36*BigMac has to do some laundry to prepare for my voyage tomorrow
03:12:13Rosethornnhow much space on my 'pod is this gonna take up? the same amount as the zip/contents?
03:12:59maquisok... i'm lost... i'm trying to find a manual someplace that will give me some information on how to do some specific things... i thought that the "party mode" was what i wanted, but i can't get it to work...
03:13:21maquisi keep finding the faq, and some lists of specific information, but not what i'm looking for
03:13:28FebsDid you try clicking the "documentation" link on the website?
03:13:30maquis(sorry if this is a stupid question)
03:13:33BigMacmarquis:look under daily builds
03:13:42BigMacthen under your model should be the manual
03:13:43maquisFebs: that's where i'v ebeen looking...
03:13:51maquisBigMac: i'll check there...
03:14:02FebsThe very first link under documentation is the Rockbox manual
03:14:58maquisFebs: maybe i'm missing it, but i didn't see any info on what i was looking for there
03:16:24BigMacmaquis: what model are you using?
03:16:36maquisipod mini 1g
03:16:45maquis(1g == 1st generration)
03:16:57BigMacright there
03:17:01maquisBigMac: i've got that...
03:17:03BigMacshould cover party mode
03:17:11maquisnow i'm just trying to see if it explains what i'm looking for :)
03:17:20FebsWell, what are you looking for?
03:18:07scorcheBigMac: you remind me of the people that would reply to every thread in the forum to say something....even if it is something like "i dont know, sorry" =P
03:18:08maquisi'm trying to figure out what the party mode is...
03:18:43maquisfound it

03:44:23Rosethornnhumm. In the FAQ it doesn't state any way that Rockbox tells you when the Tagchache is ready. :/ I'll give it a while and keep checking the playlists, I guess.
03:45:48BigMacis their anyway for shuffle to work outside of a folder
03:46:26BigMaclike instead of just playing I:alal/kfd/gfl play all of alal
03:46:32BigMacthat sucks
03:46:38scorcheBigMac: you can
03:46:40BigMacthen i back to making m3u
03:46:52scorcherecursively insert everything into the playlist...
03:46:57scorchewell..each folder
03:47:07Rosethornnahh, misinterpereted the question, sorry BM
03:47:16BigMacim good ill just stick to playlists
03:47:25BigMacRosethornn: its ok:-)
03:47:40scorcheit makes a playlist...
03:47:57BigMacyah but then i have to drag each file correct?

03:51:46BigMaceither of them work
03:51:59maquisBigMac: i wasn't having any luck with menu, but play got it
03:52:09BigMacmaquis: np
03:52:13Rosethornngah, this Initialize Now is taking aaaaages
03:52:13scorcheBigMac: well....if you are not talking about making them within rockbox on #rockbox...please say so beforehand as to prevent confusion...
03:52:46BigMaci wasnt talking about playlists you suggested playlists
03:52:50BigMaci was talking about
03:53:02FebsThen you were talking about playlists.
03:53:06BigMacwhich is perfectly legit to talk about in 3rockbox
03:53:18FebsWhat do you think gets shuffled?
03:53:18scorcheRosethornn: it is done when the disk stops accessing
03:53:25Rosethornnhow will I know that?
03:53:46BigMacso im supposed to say i use my pc to make playlists when i enter the chat, just in case someone propisitions the idea
03:53:48*Rosethornn holds her iPod up to her ear and shakes it.
03:53:58scorcheRosethornn: there is an icon on the status bar
03:54:05Rosethornnthe disc-y one, I presume?
03:54:16Rosethornnit stopped ages ago, but I still can't access tracks by Artist, etc
03:54:33Rosethornnit says "TagCache not ready"
03:54:43FebsBigMac, why would anyone assume that you are using your computer to make playlists, when this is the #rockbox channel?
03:55:04RosethornnFebs, you do need a PC to configure a large amount of rockbox
03:55:21FebsTo install it, sure, but not to make playlists.
03:55:35Rosethornnit's an option, isn't it?
03:55:52Rosethornn(how do I make the Tagcache "ready"?)
03:56:01FebsRosethornn, initialize it.
03:56:05Rosethornnjust did
03:56:13Rosethornn"Initialize now"
03:56:23Rosethornndoes so
03:56:23BigMacFebs: he didn't ask me what i used to make playlists
03:56:36BigMac\he said i could put all my music into a playlist
03:56:36Rosethornnahh, ty
03:56:54BigMacand i told that would be hard having to drag and drop each individual track
03:56:58scorcheBigMac: because this is #rockbox after all...
03:57:09FebsBigMac, did you not ask how to shuffle outside a folder?
03:57:12Rosethornnit just shows the iTunes scrambled folders
03:57:17scorcheand in rockbox, there is no dragging...which was the "wtf point" so to speak...
03:57:26Rosethornn"F00" "F01" "F02" "F03" etc
03:57:33FebsHold menu button −−> Show files −−> ID3 database
03:58:06BigMacwell why should i have said i use a pc to make playlist when you suggested the idea of putting all music in a playlist?
03:58:31*Febs bangs his head against a brick wall.
03:58:56BigMaci appreciate the idea
03:59:10BigMacbut it would not be worthwhile for me
03:59:19FebsRosethornn, FYI, I actually wrote a section for the manual last night on how to initialize the Tag Cache. It will be in the July 28 manual daily build.
03:59:47Rosethornnooh, neat
04:00:01Rosethornnand heyyyyy, I got a track to play. ^_^
04:00:10*Rosethornn feels unnecassarily proud
04:00:32BigMacanyone a fan of the doors?
04:00:50Rosethornnnow that *is* off topic. XD
04:01:06scorcheand he didnt preface it with letting us know that it is off topic!
04:01:09Rosethornnso, do I have to 'Initialize Now' every time I add new msuic files?
04:01:15Rosethornnfor shame
04:01:19Rosethornnoh, neat
04:01:21FebsNo. You can just use "Update Now."
04:01:25scorchethat is what the update now option is for
04:01:39BigMacoh im sorry, for are slower people here, my previous statement was off topic
04:01:54scorcheBigMac: thank you...i feel much better now...
04:01:55FebsOr, you can turn "Auto Update" on, and it will update automatically when you start Rockbox.
04:02:05RosethornnSo I just bung new music into my iPod's 'music' folder, disconnect it from the PC and update?
04:02:13BigMacscorche: anything to accomodate you
04:02:40FebsRosethornn, yes. Or you can arrange your music in folders if you prefer.
04:02:47BigMaci have never used itunes for putting my music on...ever
04:02:47scorcheoh...that was for me?...i didnt realize i qualified under the "slower people" section here...
04:02:57FebsTagCache will find them whereever they are on the player.
04:03:24BigMacscottder: if it wasn't for you then why did you imply that it was by commenting back

04:15:58scorchethis is is is not a place for social is a method and a vessel for support for rockbox
04:17:20scorcheif you feel the need to express your happiness that your friend is selling you an ipod mini...there are many other channels for that...
04:19:13BigMacscorche: according to paul, i am allowed to talk about non rockbox issues. i just cant talk about completly non rockbox issues. that is a semirockbox issue, because i am putting rockbox on it. and if you would have given me a minute i would have stated what i wanted to ask.
04:19:33BigMacis rockbox running smoothly on the mini
04:20:24*scorche sighs
04:20:35*BigMac sighs
04:20:47midkayis "i'm getting a mini sweeeeeet" a rockbox semi-*issue*?
04:21:11BigMaci was going to inquire about how rockbox runs on it
04:21:15scorcheasking questions is much better...we did not need to know about your method of getting the device to answer your question...please remember this
04:21:27midkayyou had like two minutes before scorche scolded you, why didn't you ask then?
04:21:30BigMacand i felt it would make sense if i said that i was getting a mini
04:21:51midkayseems like you thought of a question to go along with the statement only *after* you released you needed a question..
04:21:56BigMacbecause i had to go take my diamox and fix something on my moms computer if you must know....
04:22:27BigMacwell how can i prove that im not lieing
04:22:39midkayand typing seven words first is too much before you go do all that.

04:23:13Rosethornnwould it be off topic to point out that this level of strictness seems anally retentive and doesn't really make for a friendly atmosphere?

04:25:14FebsRosethornn, you wouldn't ordinarily see that level of strictness here, but BigMac has been posting a whole lot of nothing for several days now.
04:25:17JdGordonhell no... redoing all the button code in the core
04:25:22midkayso like literally she came in EXACTLY to the second after "Sweeeeeeeeet" and you couldn't stick around for a couple seconds to type something?

04:27:37midkayit's surely possible and it does exist on the irivers. not yet on the ipods is all.
04:27:38Rosethornnof course, midkay
04:27:54Rosethornnokay... how do I find out if they're working on it?
04:27:58JdGordondoes holding play on the h100 lcd remote do anything in the wps atm?
04:28:09midkayif gun was simply "gray2" or something, it'd be flat shaded gray2 and it wouldn't look like a gun, it'd look like a gray blob as wel as the monsters and walls.
04:28:10BigMacmidkay: yes, you know how it is they start off , can you please help me then once they get irritated after asking several times they come in and TELL you to do it
04:28:24Rosethornnthat''s why I said with some grey 2, etc, mixed in
04:28:30scorcheBigMac: so you are blaming it all on me...?
04:28:30qwmhm BigMac, are you rich?
04:28:41midkayBigMac: so for an hour she's been please help me and just the exact second you cheer to us that you got a mini she went from please to *NOW!!*?
04:28:42scorcheRosethornn: i will check
04:28:47Rosethornnthankyou. :)
04:28:47BigMacthat is to both of you
04:29:03BigMaci can't time my reactions with my mom talking to me
04:29:10Rosethornnmidkay: that's off topic.
04:29:18FebsBigMac, that's because your questions are things like, "Does anyone here like the Doors?"
04:29:20midkayRosethornn: what is off topic?
04:29:20qwmis anyone here rich?
04:29:21BigMacsee this is spam
04:29:24scorcheyeah...come on midkay ! =P
04:29:32qwmi give 10 000 USD blowjobs.
04:29:32Rosethornn"so for an hour she's been please help me and just the exact second you cheer to us that you got a mini she went from please to *NOW!!*?"
04:29:39BigMacweve been going on for 10 minutes to convince midkay im not lieing
04:29:40midkayyes, it is.. i just want to clarify the whole stupidity of the presented lie and make sure that nobody believes it.
04:30:07midkayyou won't convince me with "my mom came around at the exact second out of a whole hour that caused me to not be able to type my seven word question". sorry.

04:30:40midkayyes, because the current.txt has solutions to all the iriver problems.
04:30:51BigMacFebs:that was off topic . i was just asking because this is a jukebox chat which means people listen to music, and i wanted to know what audio codec they reccommend for the doors
04:31:02Rosethornnscorche: any news on the Doom thing?
04:31:09FebsBigMac, you're full of shit.
04:31:12midkayyou use codecs on a per-artist basis? HAHA.
04:31:20scorcheRosethornn: no...i have been too busy dealing with certain people to look...
04:31:26BigMacmidkay: done. i really dont want to continue arguing
04:31:39midkayhm, i think ogg would go good with Pink Floyd.. maybe i'll try wavpack.. lossy.. at 31% compression.. for Coldplay. yeah.
04:31:42FebsBesides, we know that you prefer APE.
04:31:42scorcheBigMac: then remain on-topic from now on
04:31:53qwmis there any good gay bars in seattle?
04:31:58BigMacfebs:doesn't the bitrate detrmine quality?
04:32:06BigMacyes i prefer ape
04:32:16BigMacthat doesn't mean i cant try other formats does it
04:32:18midkayyou prefer an audio codec and don't even know what the bitrate means?
04:32:27midkayyou're just blindly supporting a random codec..
04:32:33BigMacno i'm new to this stuff
04:32:38BigMacive tried a few
04:32:42BigMacand i like ape i guess
04:32:52midkayposting personal preferences in threads that want assistance is one thing, when you don't even understand that preference is another..
04:32:55BigMacmy reason im embarassed to say
04:32:56JdGordonhmm... the remote keys are not in the manual... i guess no one will mind if i change them all then :d
04:33:22midkayyou don't know what the bitrate is but you have such ears that you can hear that "ape sounds better i guess"? honestly... just..
04:33:43BigMacmidkay: they all sound the same to me
04:33:48BigMacbut i prefer ape
04:33:52midkay... why?
04:33:56BigMacidk why
04:33:57midkayif they're all the same sounding.
04:33:59BigMaci just do
04:34:08BigMaci guess it my preference
04:34:24scorcheRosethornn: i briefly checked flyspray and could not find anything...if you are really desperate to find it, you might check other the forums, #rockbox logs, or the wiki
04:34:33midkayso disregard that posting your preference as "ape" is totally offtopic, it's complete blind faith and utterly worthless. you don't know what you're talking about in the least.

04:36:24midkaythe "spam" is a result of yours. we're trying to clarify that you are spamming and that you need to stop.

05:09:05FebsThe scroll wheel moves only one entry at a time. You have to release the scroll wheel and spin it again to move up or down a single entry.
05:09:20FebsSelect does not work.
05:09:25FebsMenu does not work.
05:11:03FebsRight arrow freezes the player with the hard drive spinning. (Although, interestingly enough, the backlight still works, so it's not a complete lockup.)
05:12:23midkaythe scroll wheel bit is a button_repeat issue, by the way.

05:13:07midkaybutton_repeat is triggered after more than one consecutive scroll event, i mean as long as the finger isn't released.. so be careful with it.

08:42:45LinusNamiconn: Power
08:42:49LinusNJdGordon: one q:
08:43:08*amiconn suddenly remembers that there is a bug in the X5 sim
08:43:20amiconnPower isn't assigned...
08:43:44LinusNJdGordon: why the while() loop in get_default_action()?
08:43:52amiconnOkay, the bitmap drawing needs more testing, but the driver seems to be ok as-is
08:44:16LinusNamiconn: great, commit it and i'll work on the lcd_remote_update() functions
08:44:17amiconnI'll commit my ton of changes in several steps. Not all of them are X5 remote related
08:44:52JdGordonLinusN: it saves having nested if's all checking (ret == ACTION_UNKNOWN)
08:45:03LinusNJdGordon: ok
08:45:14LinusNit just felt awkward at first sight
08:46:01JdGordonye, i was afraid of that
08:46:29JdGordoni was hoping it was commented enough to not do that, maybe a bit more would be better
08:47:07LinusNnah, i just skimmed through the patch

08:47:56LinusNon your wiki page, does "not working" really mean that it doesn't work?
08:48:19LinusNor that it isn't ported to the new concept?
08:48:20JdGordonno, its not converted yet, dunno why i said not working :p
08:48:55LinusNbecause i think we should be able to commit it before everything is ported
08:49:07*JdGordon thinks LinusN is crazy.. it doesnt say not working anywhere on that page :D
08:49:24JdGordon6 keypads to convert and i think it will be good to go
08:49:40LinusNwhat about the wps and the ffwd?

08:52:35Bg3rThe button checking code will check the given context list for the pressed button, if no button was found it will check the standard button list. However, if the target has a remote it will first check the CONTEXT_STD_REMOTE list,

08:57:56Bg3ri mean about my thoughts
08:58:14Bg3rwe can pass a context list, containing remote buttons (for example)

08:58:59LinusNlet me see if i understand it correctly
08:59:18LinusNin the current incarnation, you can't create a "local" context?

09:00:18Bg3ri'll look at the code again
09:00:51LinusNthere is no alternative but to call get_default_action(), and have the contexts defined globally
09:01:17LinusNand i think that might make life hard for the plugins
09:01:27Bg3ryes, i think that too
09:02:06Bg3rapps/tree.c:1003: if (button_get(false) == ACTION_STD_EXIT) huh
09:02:22LinusNotoh, i believe the vast majority of plugins can use a standard action list
09:03:02LinusNBg3r: ouch
09:03:22Bg3ryep, and this will give some consistency in them
09:03:29Bg3rLinusN: that is taken from the wiki page
09:05:20LinusNBg3r: should really be get_action(CONTEXT_STD, TIMEOUT_NOBLOCK), right?
09:06:01Bg3rif the other calls to get_action() in tree.c use CONTEXT_STD, then yes
09:06:13Bg3r(of course i can't be sure:))

09:20:02LinusNwill do, thx
09:21:02LinusNamiconn: i recall that we have had some nasty assumptions in the code, that the remote was always monochrome

09:24:56LinusNamiconn: #define SCROLLABLE_LINES ((LCD_HEIGHT+4)/5 < 32 ? (LCD_HEIGHT+4)/5 : 32)
09:25:11LinusNi guess the 5 is the smallest font size, right?
09:25:55amiconnI just repaired it how it was meant to be (and is in the dedicated drivers)
09:26:08LinusNyup, that was good
09:26:24amiconnUnfortunately the 32 is the limit as the scroll code uses a bitmask for storing which lines are actually used
09:26:33LinusNah yes
09:26:46LinusNhmm, won't gigabeat suffer from that?
09:27:00amiconnThe ipod video already does
09:27:04LinusNah, yes
09:27:21amiconn...even the ipod color/ h300
09:27:43amiconnBut it's a more theoretical limit - who would use a 5px font on those displays _and_ have more than 32 scrolling lines?

10:22:02ton1Once all east set up you use your IPOD like a key USB, you make copy stuck your audio files, towards the repertory of your choice in the IPOD? And you can read the audio files from the IPOD? like a walkman MP3
10:22:07Lynx_did anything about scrolling speed in the file browser change in the last weeks? i remember talk about that, but can't find anything in the cvs commits

10:24:56ton1to make does machine postpone after having installed rockbox is impossible I think, I am mistaken?
10:25:02LinusNamiconn: how would you make that?
10:25:29LinusNLynx_: huh?
10:25:38amiconnLinusN: The basic idea is to have a cache for a number of 8x8 pixel blocks in IRAM
10:26:04amiconnCopying from/to this cache would use burst mode
10:26:29amiconnDrawing of small bits would be done within these blocks
10:26:48ton1more need for iTune, GTKpod to add music in the IPOD? is to copy to stick enough?
10:26:56LinusNamiconn: but wouldn't the cache "housekeeping" eat up the saved cycles?
10:27:11LinusNton1: copy is enough
10:27:11amiconnYeah, that's one of the questions
10:27:20amiconnThe other is how to keep consistency
10:27:35*LinusN whispers "can of worms..."
10:27:39Lynx_LinusN: I think there were mails in the dev list about improving the speed the screen is redrawn at in the file browser. I was hoping that would mabye have a positive impact on the scrolling speed, which is the only thing that a find somewhat annoying still about rockbox.
10:28:06LinusNLynx_: you mean scrolling the file list?
10:28:10Lynx_LinusN: yes
10:28:26LinusNi thought you meant the scrolling lines
10:28:33Lynx_ah, sorry, no
10:28:53ton1LinusN: Is Rockbox it to manage the photo albums, it makes also diaporama?
10:29:00LinusNLynx_: yes, there is a patch to reduce the screen drawing in the list widget, but i don't know how well it works
10:29:16amiconnAnother idea is to bundle 2 pixels into a 32bit word for mono bitmap drawing. Way less complex, but also less potential speedup
10:29:19LinusNton1: "diaporama"?
10:30:37Lynx_LinusN: ok, so nothing in cvs yet. Is it likely that the problem of sound pausing after longer scrolling in the file list is going to be fixed? I guess the scrolling takes CPU resouces away from the decoding, if i understand that correctly.
10:30:42amiconnMaybe the same could be done with whole lines (8 pixels), but then the loop will probably run out of registers
10:31:08amiconn...which might end up being slower than what we have now
10:31:12LinusNLynx_: yes, optimizing the screen drawing will have a good effect on the decoding
10:31:24LinusNamiconn: probably
10:31:52ton1diaporama = photograph which ravels all alone
10:34:21ton1 LinusN: Is Rockbox it to manage the photo albums and it can make ravel the photographs all alone every two seconds ?

12:06:10linuxstbOne thing I've been thinking about is to introduce the concept of subtracks in a file (for cue, sid, chaptered mp4 etc). The rest of Rockbox would still treat it as one file (i.e. it would be a single file in a playlist - you can't shuffle the contents), but NEXT/PREV in the WPS would take you to the next/prev subtrack, and the WPS would need the ability to display the extra metadata for the subtracks.
12:06:26crwlcrashd_, why would you need cue files for that?
12:06:49linuxstbThe only issue is how to efficiently store the metadata for all the sub-tracks...
12:07:04LinusNsubtracks would perhaps also be nice for the sid codec
12:07:37linuxstb"(for cue, sid, chaptered mp4 etc)"
12:08:11amiconnAnd sub-tracks in mods, yes.
12:08:36amiconnBut the problem remains that you can't put specific sub-tracks in playlists
12:09:22linuxstbWhich is a .m3u problem as well as Rockbox...
12:09:46amiconnYeah, but otoh I wouldn't like to move away from m3u
12:09:56sharpei'm not quite sure how my headphones got wrapped over the desk light of mine...
12:10:01amiconnIt's plain & simple, supported almost everywhere...

I've got a few ideas about how that could work, and will try to put them on the wiki somewhere.

15:06:12Bg3rit'll occupy a little more mem, but there won't be these 3 cases on the platforms with remote in get_default_action()
15:06:16theprodukktin settings_menu.c a lot of functions to set the bools look like that: static bool ...(void) { bool result = set_bool_options(...); return result;}
15:06:30pekujaLinusN, it'd be so much nicer if there only was one standard :-P
15:06:35linuxstbpekuja: I've always seen the bitrate for CD audio quoted as 1411kbit/s.
15:06:45pekujaI mean linuxstdb, but doesn't matter that much.
15:06:46theprodukktwouldnt it be better if the result of the set_bool is directly forwarded to the return call
15:06:54pekujalinuxstb, ok
15:06:56LinusNtheprodukkt: but you must also look att the settings_reset() function for some special cases
15:07:14theprodukktlike { result set_bool_options; }
15:07:28theprodukktok thx ill check it
15:07:41pekujausing 1024 is kinda useless these days
15:08:47LinusNtheprodukkt: the set_xxx() return value tells you if the dialog was cancelled
15:08:56linuxstbpekuja: Logical disk sectors are normally 512 bytes, not 500 bytes....
15:09:22Bg3rLinusN: in the way it's now ... if u want a "user" action mapping (and want to use the remote too), u would supply the remote keys at the end of the user table, or there should be 2 parameters for set_user_action(struct button_mapping* main, ... remote)
15:10:46LinusNset_user_action()? did you just invent that function?
15:12:41Bg3ryes :D
15:13:17Bg3rregarding local contexts
15:14:12pekujalinuxstb, true. does it make any sense to the user to know that though?

15:18:29linuxstbbarrywardell: Hello. What's the news on your H10?
15:18:44barrywardellI think there's a problem with the hdd
15:18:54barrywardelland I haven't been able to recover it
15:19:03barrywardellI'm thinking about doing an RMA
15:19:46linuxstbHopefully iriver don't monitor this channel and recognise your name :)
15:19:59linuxstbI guess you've still got your own .mi4 there?
15:20:31barrywardellyeah, so I don't know if they will notice or not
15:20:45linuxstbHopefully the HD is dead, in which case they won't...
15:20:45barrywardellbut it looks like it's my only option
15:20:48 Join Febs [0] (
15:20:59barrywardellit seems to be totally dead
15:21:14barrywardellthe rest of the player seems fine.
15:23:30aliaskWhat did you do to it?
15:24:51barrywardelli was using a build of the rockbox bootloader
15:26:31barrywardellbasically the ipod bootloader modified to read the gpio ports and write the data to disk
15:28:33barrywardelljust filled out iriver's rma request form there
15:28:45barrywardellit's still in warranty until the 30th of July
15:30:11aliaskGood timing then
15:30:37barrywardellit's a fairly significant setback to the h10 port efforts
15:31:15aliaskMy player's long out of warantee, if anything happened to it, I think I'd just have an expensive 40gb harddrive (that is, if the hdd still worked)
15:31:36aliaskDid you ever get the button driver working?
15:33:03barrywardelli had finally just got a build target up an running
15:33:20barrywardelli had the buttons mostly figured out i think
15:33:29barrywardelland a driver written
15:33:32LinusNbarrywardell: please submit a patch with what you've got so far
15:34:02barrywardellLinusN: I will do of course. but am a little wary of bricking someone else's h10
15:34:30LinusNbarrywardell: that's not your problem
15:35:00theprodukktlinus: {1, S_O(tagcache_ram), 0, "tagcache_ram", off_on } i took this line from the settings.c, could u explain the meaning of those values shortly (i think the first is the settingstoragesize in bytes)
15:36:26LinusNthe first is size in bits, not bytes
15:36:59theprodukktah yes
15:36:59goffawell... they didn't void my warranty (but then i was able to get original firmware back on)
15:37:17LinusNS_O(...) is a macro that translates to the size and offset of the member of the settings struct
15:37:30theprodukkt0 is the standard value?
15:37:40LinusNthe default value, yes
15:37:48barrywardellwhere should I submit a patch to?
15:38:07theprodukktand "tagcache_ram" the entry in the .lang file?
15:39:31LinusNtheprodukkt: "tagcache_ram" is the name of the setting in the .cfg file

15:40:12linuxstbLinusN: Do you think the H10 patch should be committed, or you just want it on the tracker so the work isn't lost?

15:40:32LinusNlinuxstb: the latter
15:42:13linuxstbLinusN: OK. I agree, but was just checking...
15:43:20LinusNtheprodukkt: it would really help if you read the file settings.c, start at line 168

15:55:19aliaskNot all targets have things like colour screens, or the same buttons, etc.
15:55:43theprodukkt(do i have to compile it for each platform or can i check it theoritcally (sorry for that word, hope u can understand))

16:16:26Mikachulinuxstb: if the stack grew due to a leak in vorbis, would that then also affect mp3 files, or is the stack cleared on codec swaps?
16:17:14Rincewindi get an error in star_tiles.10x10.grey.c when I compile: "syntax error before '-' token (h120) can someone confirm this?
16:17:17linuxstbI would assume it's cleared on codec swaps.
16:17:39Mikachuhm, then it might be something completely different
16:17:49Mikachui can't try anything more drastic until i get home though
16:18:55Mikachuwould rb crash if the codec stack overflows or is it only the main stack?
16:19:38Mikachui've listened to 3 songs now and it's at 14% still, so i think something was fishy before
16:19:44linuxstbI'm not sure exactly where the codec stack is, so don't know where it would overflow to. But obviously stack overflows are generally a bad thing...
16:20:32Mikachuokay, thanks. i'll not bother´you more until i've got home and try cvs
16:20:54linuxstbBut why do you think it's the stack? That's unrelated to the codec malloc/free - which should fail to allocate more memory than is available.
16:21:14Mikachui dunno, just guessing
16:21:22Mikachuand that it showed 85%
16:22:11linuxstbIt would show 100% if there was an overflow (or probably actually tell you there's an overflow and stop)

19:46:39aarondI'll got with bitrate :)
19:46:56Mikachui think doing that will give lower quality at the same bitrate
19:47:20Mikachuat least in theory
19:47:49linuxstbaarond: I think in general, with VBR codecs, it's best to give them a quality setting, rather than try to constraint the bitrate.
19:48:10Mikachuaarond: 3 usually gives around 110
19:48:31aarondit alows vbr but lets you set a base bitrate I think
19:48:56aarondand its set as 3 by default, thats good?
19:49:15Mikachui'm no quality freak, but i've never heard any artifacts at 3
19:49:26aarondI'll give it a try

21:02:37LandusThat was gay.
21:02:59LandusKept on getting a BSOD everytime I tried building todays source for Rockbox.
21:03:00dionoeadan_a: did you already do stuff like that before ? or just improvising ?
21:03:14dionoeaLandus: maybe your CPU is overheating
21:03:19LandusIt wasn't that.
21:03:27LandusI finally figured it out after looking at the error codes.
21:03:41LandusIt was the driver for the Tobisha harddrive in my Iriver.
21:03:56dan_adionoea: I'm just improvising really. The first step will be useful to anyone else who tries, and that's just to make the thing boot.
21:04:01LandusFor some reason, trying to get the Makefile by ../tools/configure made it crash.
21:04:18dan_aAfter that I'm going to try running the codec thread on it
21:04:18dionoeadan_a: if you need any help, i'm willing to improvise too :)
21:04:33LandusUnplugging my Iriver from my computer took care of the problem.
21:04:37LandusBloody annoying, though.
21:04:45dionoeaLandus: that's kind of weird
21:05:14LandusDunno why it was crashing, but when I looked closer and saw it was a driver error.
21:05:32LandusI looked through the drivers running and saw the HD driver for my Iriver.
21:05:36LandusUnplugged it and volia.
21:05:43LandusNo BSOD crashing my computer.
21:05:51dionoeado both cores run at the same clock speed ?
21:06:15LandusI dunno for my Iriver.
21:06:24LandusWhat it is.
21:06:26LandusSo I can't say.
21:06:38dionoeahehe, that question was for dan_a :)
21:07:17dan_adionoea: I don't know. From what I've read, you can clock the COP slower than the main processor (if anyone works out how to do it)
21:07:44dan_aAt the moment, I'm just trying to figure out what needs doing before you can branch into main.c
21:09:19*dionoea reads main.c
21:09:19dan_aLandus: That's the weirdest problem I've ever heard of!
21:09:45LandusTime to patch things.
21:09:51dan_adionoea: main.c is where the main program starts from, but the processors are set up in crt0.S
21:09:59LandusHopefully, this should fix the problem I'm having on my Iriver.
21:10:04LandusSome songs will skip.
21:10:08dionoeayeah, i looked at crt0.S the other day ... didn't understand much though
21:10:09LandusWhile others don't.
21:10:22LandusIf I run the songs in the official firmware, they don't skip.
21:10:34LandusRan a defrag and a scan disk on the Iriver.
21:10:41LandusThen put the songs back on.
21:10:45LandusStill didn't fix anything.
21:12:07dan_adionoea: Do you have a copy of the ARM instruction set?
21:12:18*dionoea printed those yesterday
21:12:53*dan_a gets confused with all the different addressing modes
21:13:05dionoeai also had a look at the page about pp5020
21:13:10dionoeaand that's about all i did :)
21:14:51dionoeadan_a: were do they define Addressing Mode 1 ?
21:15:58dionoeamaybe it doesn't exist, i can't find any reference to it
21:16:22dan_aI don't think it does exist
21:17:59dionoeado you like init the CPU first, start the main thread, then init the COP and fork ?
21:19:21dionoeabtw, does ipod linux use the COP or not ?
21:20:09dan_aI think that you init the CPUs at the same time, and put the COP to sleep once enough has been done on it with the next instruction for when it wakes up being something like "bl cop_main" to take it to a function called cop_main
21:20:38dan_aipod linux uses the COP to service fast interrupts (FIQs)
21:21:01LandusI really can't find the FAQ for this again.
21:21:06linuxstbI think their video player might also use it as well - and maybe other projects have played with it.
21:21:07LandusOnce I make the source.

22:21:59Mikachuokay, that is what i thiught too
22:23:03linuxstbI can make a quick Nano build if you want to test though. Just to satisfy our curiosity.
22:23:47linuxstbIt's recording via the right-channel of the headphone jack - I'm using the original white earbuds as a mic :)
22:24:22Mikachuany chance it has a self destruct command at the same adress?
22:24:34linuxstbYou know I can't guarantee that...
22:24:52Mikachui'll give it a shot
22:25:04linuxstbAre you happy with a binary?
22:25:51LandusMikachu: No. The Prevent Clipping option in Rockbox requires Replaygain tags for it to work.
22:26:00linuxstbOK, compiling now. Playback doesn't work in this build (the FIQ is hard-coded to record), so don't forget to revert to your own build.
22:26:46Mikachuit will have a Record entry in the menu?
22:27:47linuxstbYes. As soon as you go into the recording screen, you should see the recording peakmeters go up and down. If not, then it's not working.
22:28:27linuxstbThe peakmeters work by analysing the PCM data read from the ADC - similar to the playback peakmeters. So if the peakmeters work, then it means the data is being read successfully.
