#rockbox log for 2006-08-19

00:00:19peturhehe... was investigating a strange glitch (beep) in a recent recording. Looking at the waveform, it must have been a glitch in the PA :)
00:00:54 Join midgey31 [0] (
00:01:01jhMikeSThe progress bar always seems to stop 2 seconds before the end of the recorded file.
00:01:18peturlet me try with my current build
00:01:46MikachujhMikeS: that is a "feature"
00:01:55Mikachuoh wait, i think i didn't read everything now :)

00:04:14jhMikeSsorry, petur
00:04:39peturplaying back a recording always shows everything correctly till the end
00:05:32jhMikeSI wonder what could be missing from the file at that point.
00:05:44jhMikeSWhen I did the file split the problem was not evident.
00:06:14peturrecord yourself counting to ten
00:06:41peturthen you'll hear what's missing

00:10:00peturdo you get this whit other files (not recorded) ?
00:10:20jhMikeSI'll verify that actually.
00:10:30jhMikeSDo you use "play" to stop the recording?
00:10:49jhMikeSOr is there some other button I don't know about? :)

00:13:31jwwolfi am in thebash
00:13:34Mikachujwwolf: if you get errors, you need to fix the patch manually, if you don't know how you are out of luck
00:14:03jwwolfany ideas where to get started doing them manually?
00:14:09jwwolfis it just editing the files by hand?
00:14:17Davide-NYCjwwolf: I don;t really know how, but what I've done succesfully is look at the *.rej files and then look at the files that failed to patch
00:14:27Mikachuthat's the one
00:14:30Davide-NYCedit the required files and just recompile
00:14:35 Quit excitatory (Nick collision from services.)
00:14:44jwwolfwhat are the rej files?
00:14:49Mikachusometimes it's just something nearby that changed that has no effect on what you want to do
00:14:51Davide-NYCit works for me sometime, and I really really don't know shit
00:15:02Mikachubut sometimes the code you want to patch has changed completely and then it's harder

00:15:14Davide-NYC^^ what mika says
00:15:27jwwolfso i just go in an change them manually?

00:29:10Davide-NYCpetur: stupid question: is it cool if I expand the ButtonAssignments page to include all targets and remotes?
00:29:45petursorry, haven't followed anything about those button things
00:29:47jwwolfDavide-NYC: is it ok if i pm you since you seem to have some exp wiht manually editing the file?
00:29:59Davide-NYCI have diddly experience.
00:30:05jwwolfoh woops
00:30:08Davide-NYCtrust me I know nothing.
00:30:35jwwolfpetur? would you know how to progress in manually editing the files?
00:31:04Bagderjwwolf: load the file in a text editor, fix the flaws
00:31:18Bagderit takes some programming knowledge
00:31:20Davide-NYCpetur: if you have a sec chack the images in this post
00:31:23Bagderat times a lot
00:31:28jwwolfi dont understand whatthe erriors are commenting on
00:31:29Mikachujwwolf: what patch are we talking about?
00:31:55jwwolfand a few other ones as well but that is the main one i am consentrating on
00:32:02Mikachui think it was decided it uses too much cpu to be included
00:32:29jwwolfwhat about list.opti.and.scroll.accel.patch?
00:32:41Mikachuwhat it does is turn the backlight on and off 50 times or so per second, so it looks like it is dimmed
00:32:45Mikachui don't know
00:33:03Paul_The_NerdThat's not *quite* how it works.
00:33:09Mikachuthat's what fades do too, but they only last for a second so it doesn't matter
00:33:18Paul_The_NerdIsn't it the voltage to the LED that's fluctuated, not really it's on/off state?
00:33:31Mikachuit's turned on and off
00:33:31 Quit ender` (" It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye. Then it's fun and games you can't see.")
00:33:37Paul_The_NerdEither way, it requires the CPU to be boosted the whole time.
00:33:55Mikachurequires in the sense that switching boost state makes the screen flicker
00:34:02Mikachuamiconn: am i lying?
00:34:03jwwolfseems like all the patches are not finding the correct files?
00:34:18amiconnMikachu: Not on ipod
00:34:23jwwolfmost have no such file or directory
00:34:29amiconnThe pp timer is independent of the cpu clock
00:34:46Mikachuhm, i see
00:34:54Mikachubut it still uses too much cpu to flip the enable bit?
00:35:00amiconnBut using pwm for the ipod backlight just feels wrong
00:35:15Mikachui don't know how the original firmware fades it :(
00:35:28jwwolfwhat about the audioscrobbler patch?
00:35:31Mikachui think preglow said it probably did pwm too but much faster
00:35:33 Quit damaki_ (Remote closed the connection)
00:35:36amiconnAfaik the ipod can set backlight brightness somehow, but we need to figure out how
00:36:04Mikachuif you shake the ipod quickly while fading in rockobx, you can see the lcd turn on and off, but in retail os it's a constant lower light
00:36:19peturjwwolf: if it can't find the files, use -px where x is 0 to ... or go to the correct directory before patching
00:36:20Mikachu(not a recommended procedure with hd based ipods)
00:37:12amiconnWell, as long as the disk isn't spinning, shaking shouldn't hurt
00:37:18jwwolfso i should put the patches in the main cvs and then call it via patch in the say firmware folder?
00:37:39amiconnshaking causes way lower g forces than e.g. dropping on a hard floor
00:37:51Mikachuthat is also not recommended :)
00:38:03 Quit midgey31 (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:38:37peturjwwolf: all depends on the patch, most are done from the rockbox directory (which has the apps, firmware,... dirs)
00:38:49jwwolfthats what i though
00:39:04Mikachuif you look at the patch you can figure out what number to use
00:39:14Mikachuthe x in -px says how many leading path segments to strip
00:39:49Mikachufoo/bar/baz has three path segments, -p1 would leave bar/baz
00:40:08Mikachuso if the patch says apps/main.c you want to say -p0 and sit in the main rockbox cvs dir
00:40:20Mikachuif it says only main.c you want to be in apps/
00:40:27Mikachuif it says rockbox/apps/main.c you want to be in the main dir and say -p1
00:40:34jwwolfso if it goes to firmware i would -p1 then?
00:41:03Mikachuthat depends on where you are
00:41:21jwwolfapps/SOURCES i would do -p0 correct from the main cvsroot?
00:41:31jwwolflet me try that
00:41:40Mikachuyou could also just try until it works but that's not as fun as knowing what's going on

00:51:04 Quit lodesi_ ("leaving")
00:51:43Paul_The_NerdLook at it in a text viewer of some sort?
00:51:53Mikachua reject file is meant for a human to read
00:52:04Paul_The_NerdIt's a file containing C code, and telling you which lines to substitute for other lines
00:52:18Mikachuit may or may not have c code :)
00:52:53Paul_The_NerdOkay, it *may* have some assembly
00:52:57Paul_The_NerdBut that's fairly unlikely
00:53:14Paul_The_NerdOr it may have tex
00:53:19jwwolfi guess im not understanding how i go about editing the corresponding file that has the rejects in it?
00:53:20Paul_The_NerdBut in this case, it's most likely to have C code.
00:53:54Mikachujwwolf: the reject file has a line number and some text with - and + in front of them
00:54:03Mikachugo to the file and line it specifies, and remove lines with - and add lines with +
00:54:08Bagderjwwolf: you see what changes that it could do in the original file and then you need to convert those into changes you _can_ do in the original file
00:54:20Bagdermy typing sucks
00:54:24*Bagder runs off again
00:55:07jwwolfso it says 63,68 then an #include "direcache'h" what isthat refering to?
00:55:32Paul_The_NerdThat's a line in the file that should be...
00:55:48Paul_The_NerdLike, whatever file you should be editing has the line #include "dircache.h" in it
00:55:50Paul_The_NerdOr should have it.
00:55:50Mikachujwwolf: the NAME of the reject file says which file you should edit
00:55:58Mikachui told you this earlier
00:56:12 Quit Kohlrabi ("Quit")
00:56:17Bagderthe 63,68 are line numbers where the diff was made
00:56:26jwwolfthere identical
00:56:38Mikachui think maybe this is a lost cause
00:56:51jwwolfim trying to understand it
00:56:59jwwolfbut it dosent make sense
00:57:04Paul_The_NerdIt makes sense
00:57:05jwwolfthose lines are identical
00:57:07Paul_The_NerdIt doesn't make sense to you.
00:57:16jwwolf63-68 have the exact same lines
00:57:20 Quit Snyper (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:58:08Paul_The_NerdIs that "63 through 68" because that's what - usually means?
00:58:36Paul_The_NerdYou said "63-68 have the exact same lines"
00:58:45 Join hotwire__ [0] (
00:58:48Paul_The_NerdThat would read, if spoken, "63 through 68 have..."
00:58:53Paul_The_NerdWhich does in fact make no sense.
00:58:53jwwolfyes in the rej file is says that and on the .c file it says the same thing
00:59:13Mikachujwwolf: does the rej file have lines that start with - and +?
00:59:21jwwolfyes some parts
00:59:24Paul_The_NerdThe .rej file will have a lot of what the .c file have, because it has to show you what the "old" lines look like

01:01:26jwwolfi know pastebin
01:04:23[HO]voltWhat does the "sleep" option do on my iAudio x5 ?
01:04:32[HO]voltDoes it turn off the LCD as I would expect?
01:04:35Mikachudid you read the manual?
01:04:58[HO]voltMikachu: Yes, the manual only references sleep as relating to hard drives
01:05:08Paul_The_Nerd[HO]volt: And the sleep timer?
01:05:26Paul_The_NerdI don't know of any straight "Sleep" option without any other words...
01:05:43[HO]voltSorry its called "Sleep (After Backlight Off)"
01:06:00Mikachuit might refer to turning the lcd off
01:06:13[HO]voltOptions are Always, Never, 5s 10s 15s 20s 30s 45s 60s
01:06:31Paul_The_NerdI'm guessing that's LCD Poweroff then, tough it needs a better name if it is.
01:06:43Paul_The_Nerd"Sleep" usually refers to the whole player, rather than just a single part of it.
01:07:09Mikachu[HO]volt: is it in fact under the LCD settings menu?
01:07:16[HO]voltMikachu: Yes
01:07:29Mikachuthen try setting it to 5s and see what happens
01:07:31[HO]voltIt isnt covered very well in the manual either
01:07:42[HO]voltAfter the backlight turns off I can't see anything even under a light
01:07:43Mikachuprobably a newly added option
01:07:46jwwolfdid that pastbin work?
01:08:04Paul_The_Nerdjwwolf: Pastebin's being horribly slow
01:08:19jwwolfyeah i noticed
01:09:04[HO]voltIt seems as if my LCD is powering off when it goes dark - I can't see anything even under a light
01:09:15Mikachu[HO]volt: is it set to always?
01:09:19[HO]voltThis is with Backlight set to 5s and LCD Poweroff set to 10s
01:09:32Mikachuthen i don't know what else to try
01:10:04[HO]voltApparently i _should_ see something under a light when the backlight is off (and LCD on) right?
01:10:20Mikachuthat would seem like a reasonable assumption
01:13:21hotwire__does anyone know what each button the the lcd remotes are currently assigned to?
01:13:24Paul_The_Nerdjwwolf: Okay, notice how the lines that are identical do not have a - or + before them?
01:13:44Paul_The_Nerdjwwolf: That's because they don't change... thus the whole "identical" thing.
01:13:54jwwolfthe ones with the + are the exact same on the other file
01:14:14Paul_The_Nerdjwwolf: So, the other file already has #include "scrobbler.h"?
01:14:32 Quit _Veseliq_ (Remote closed the connection)
01:14:33Paul_The_NerdThen go on to the next one.
01:14:54jwwolfthere identical
01:14:57jwwolfall of them i checked
01:15:10Paul_The_NerdAlso, did you try applying the patch more than once or something?
01:15:21Paul_The_NerdIt sounds like you didn't *just* apply this patch to clean CVS sources.
01:15:47jwwolfi redownloaded the cvs just moments ago after the last patch failed
01:15:59Paul_The_NerdOkay, and did you delete all the .rej files?
01:16:09Paul_The_NerdAre you sure this one was created by the most recent patching attempt, and not an older one?
01:17:21jwwolfthe entire rockbox was deleted and redownloaded after the patch failed
01:17:36Paul_The_NerdSo, you've only run "patch whatever.patch" exactly once?
01:17:41Paul_The_NerdOn this new set of source code?
01:18:21Paul_The_NerdAnd you're using the official sources, downloaded using the cvs command?
01:18:49Paul_The_NerdThere's something you're not telling me.
01:18:52jwwolf <using that link verbaitem
01:19:10Paul_The_NerdBecause if you tried to apply the patch, and it *didn't* those lines would not exist.
01:19:12MikachuPaul_The_Nerd: the patch is rather old
01:19:15Paul_The_NerdAnd if it did, it wouldn't put them in the .rej
01:19:24Paul_The_NerdMikachu: Yeah, but #include "scrobbler.h" is not in the CVS sources
01:19:25Mikachuif we're still talking about the backlight
01:19:30Mikachuoh, that's no backlight
01:19:41jwwolfno its the scrobller.patch
01:20:49Paul_The_Nerdjwwolf: You're not telling me something. That line is not in the official sources. The fact that it's in the .rej means that the run of the "patch" command that created the .rej did not add the file. You either didn't rm -rf the whole rockbox folder (cvs won't simply overwrite it for you without extra commands), or something else is going on.

01:21:19*Paul_The_Nerd has not yet ordered a new one.
01:22:01jwwolfi dont know waht welse to say paul, i followed that link verbaitem and followed the cygwin setup verbaitem, and the patch link
01:22:03Paul_The_Nerdjwwolf: Either way, the unmodified file does not have #include "scrobbler.h" in it, so your file has become modified through *something* that you did.
01:22:41jwwolfi havent done anything else to the file
01:23:07Mikachumaybe the patch is broken?
01:23:27Paul_The_NerdMikachu: Only if it's trying to add that line more than once in the original patch.
01:23:39Paul_The_NerdMikachu: Which means the patch would've *never* applied in the past.
01:24:03Mikachumaybe there're more patches in the tracker item but he downloaded the oldest one?
01:24:16Paul_The_Nerdjwwolf: So, let me get this straight. You have no rockbox source. You run cvs to download it. Immediately after that, you do "patch -p0 scrobbler.patch" exactly ONCE. You do nothing else, PERIOD, and this happens?
01:24:32Paul_The_NerdMikachu: Either way, a patch with that flaw would never have applied even to old sources.

01:31:31Paul_The_Nerdjwwolf: So, which patch do you have exactly?
01:31:49Paul_The_NerdThe new one, or the old one?
01:31:57jwwolfaugest 15th
01:32:07Paul_The_NerdAnd is that the one you linked me?
01:32:13A_Myup, as well as a bunch of "/bla bla bla/* has modification time (some low value) seconds in future"
01:32:14Paul_The_NerdBecause Mikachu says that's the 17 april one.
01:32:16jwwolfno its not
01:32:23Mikachuit certainly is
01:32:41jwwolfi mean iwas aggreeing that it is the april 17th one
01:32:49linuxstbA_M: It just means those files have modification times in the future.
01:33:11Paul_The_Nerdjwwolf: But the file you pointed me to is the one you're trying to use?
01:33:27A_Mhuh? and how exactly did that happen? and compared to what, the time of the CVS server or my local time on my computer?
01:33:37 Quit jwwolf ()
01:33:47linuxstbA_M: Is your computer's time accurate?

01:45:02*Paul_The_Nerd is still trying to get in contact with Jeff.
01:45:04midkaydo you agree with that suggestion? :)
01:45:09Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Indeed I do.
01:45:34Paul_The_NerdI've tried emailing Jeff, and leaving him a PM over at his forums, I've tried using his AIM screenname even. He's a hard guy to get a response from.
01:45:35midkayPaul_The_Nerd: alright, i can make those now then..
01:45:39midkayhm. :\
01:45:54midkayyou really need to get ftp access and stuff..
01:46:02Paul_The_NerdIt would help a lot, I feel.
01:46:17midkayi feel the same, and i'd be glad to let him know if he's ever around.
01:46:31 Quit mkey (""Welcome to IRC; Where men are men, women are men and little girls are FBI agents!"")
01:46:44FebsPaul_The_Nerd, if I can get in touch with Jeff, how should he contact you?
01:47:21Paul_The_NerdFebs: is the best way.
01:47:35Paul_The_NerdNo _s
01:47:42*Paul_The_Nerd forgot his own email address for a second.
01:48:11Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Admins are Red, Moderators are Blue (like, bright blue compared to prior ones. Almost pure blue)
01:48:21MikachuPaul_The_Nerd: you probably mistyped the command
01:48:29MikachuPaul_The_Nerd: the < is of utmost importance :)
01:48:35Mikachuyou can use -i if it makes you feel better
01:48:41Paul_The_NerdMikachu: Hrm. It's possible I did.
01:48:44midkayPaul_The_Nerd: i had something colored "rather blue" and it was deemed a bit hard to see as in too blue.. dunno about pure blue..
01:48:47Mikachuotherwise you are telling patch to patch the patch with what you type in manually
01:48:52Mikachuwow that was a nice sentence
01:48:53Paul_The_NerdMikachu: To be honest, I probably did.
01:49:06Paul_The_NerdIt's been a while since I've applied a patch, it seems
01:49:19Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: That was the "coder" one, wasn't it?
01:49:21Mikachuby default patch just reads stdin, and < tells the shell to connect a file to stdin
01:49:35midkayPaul_The_Nerd: maybe.. the issue is readability, though.
01:49:37Paul_The_NerdMikachu: Right, yeah... thankee. I feel a bit sheepish now.
01:49:39Mikachuthat way you can for example bzcat file.patch.bz2 | patch -p1
01:49:43midkaywe have.. green for Expert, red for Developer..
01:49:51midkaydo we have artist and coder? i made those before..
01:49:54Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Ah. Maybe a dark blue border with a gradient to brighter blue text?
01:50:00midkayone was like purple, one was bluish?
01:50:03Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: I have the files, I haven't uploaded them yet.
01:50:44MikachuPaul_The_Nerd: or if you have a patch applied, and there is a second patch which includes the first, you can interdiff patch1 patch2 | patch -p1
01:50:52Mikachuinstead of first reverting patch 1
01:50:54midkayadmins are red? we already have red Developer..
01:50:59Mikachui'll stop now

01:52:45FebsI also asked if the MR admins can help us out. I'll let you know if I can get any response.
01:52:49midkaywe could have burgundy for.. something..
01:53:15Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Well, it doesn't have to be red. I can pick a new color. They're just red at the moment. Silly red stars.
01:53:24midkayi'm looking.. i mean..
01:53:29midkayi don't see many usable colors.
01:53:35midkayyellow/orange are out, they blend in..
01:53:43midkayi ended up at a dark red which looks rather nice..
01:54:13midkayor this bluish..
01:54:21Paul_The_NerdAs long as it's not likely to, at a too quick glance, be confused with existing icons.

01:57:18Paul_The_NerdMy only concern is that it's not clear that it's a forum admin. It might give the impression that I'm some sort of "Rockbox Admin" and then people would ask me to get patches committed for them.

06:05:42vcardenasbecause when im compiling, it ask me if i want to build the (S)DL version
06:06:08Paul_The_NerdIf you compile in linux, you get a linux binary using SDL
06:06:19Paul_The_NerdIf you compile in Cygwin under windows, you get a Cygwin/windows binary using SDL
06:08:40Mikachuyou _can_ compile windows binaries in linux but you really have to know what you're doing
06:08:52vcardenasumm.. i understand, i used the simulator sometimes in linux when i'm in there phisically... but now i'm only by SSH because im at home... and the PC with the linux is at work.. so i supose that myoptions are to set Cygwin
06:08:55Paul_The_NerdMikachu: Yeah, as I said, the Rockbox development environment isn't really suited to it.
06:09:06Paul_The_NerdYou'd have to do some makefile mojo and use different compilers, I imagine

06:46:07Paul_The_Nerdscorche: I'll make you an expert in the forums on the condition that y'know, you don't do anything stupid. That'll give you the power to move posts, which is what's necessary for all this. What's your forum name?
06:46:21scorchePaul_The_Nerd: scorche
06:46:40Paul_The_NerdThat's what I thought
06:46:51daurn|laptopBHSPitLappy: where?
06:46:55Paul_The_NerdOh, the forums are DOWN. That's the problem
06:46:56*Paul_The_Nerd mutters
06:47:13sharpeAll I did was move one post... :D
06:47:45Paul_The_NerdIt was MR's server being mean
06:47:49Paul_The_NerdThe MR forums weren't there either
06:47:53BHSPitLappydaurn|laptop, 4 min. before I asked if it was a PSP port
06:47:55BHSPitLappy"<Paul_The_Nerd> daurn|laptop: What are you working on a port for? And what's your error (I probably cannot help with it, depending on what it is...)"
06:48:29Paul_The_NerdBHSPitLappy: He PMed me, and I helped as far as I could
06:48:42BHSPitLappymy mistake.
06:49:01BHSPitLappywell, in any case I was curious as to the answer to the question as well :P
06:49:04Paul_The_Nerdscorche: You now have the power to organize posts. The plan is described in the a post of mine in the Administration forum. You'll see waaaay too many forums right now.
06:49:11Paul_The_NerdI still don't know what it's for.
06:49:18Paul_The_NerdBut it sounds like it's HWCODEC

06:50:06Paul_The_Nerdscorche: Right now, while the forums are "open" any posts not on the first 3 pages of a section are fair game for moving
06:50:23scorchePaul_The_Nerd: i figured as much
06:50:55sharpePaul_The_Nerd: Would a post concerning an installer merit to be in the respective installation forum?
06:51:16Paul_The_Nerdsharpe: Indeed.
06:52:23sharpeHaha, what about uninstalling?
06:52:40Paul_The_NerdI'd call removal a subset of installation
06:53:49sharpeHmm... finding ones concerning installation are pretty easy to find...
06:54:48Paul_The_NerdHopefully once there are installation problems, the people with the questions will realize that too

07:36:33sharpeFrom the General forum anyway.
07:37:24sharpeFrom pages greater than three...
07:38:40sharpePaul_The_Nerd: Scorche wants me to ask you to keep track of who moves what so we can have a contest to see who moves the most posts, to get an undetermined prize.

07:40:55fatherforkdid it take longer than two more hours? just curious. usually just depends on how busy ebay is at the time
07:41:26fatherforkyeah, alrighty
07:42:11Paul_The_Nerdsharpe: There's no real way to track it without rewriting the forum software.
07:42:55*Paul_The_Nerd is looking forward to the protests when the forums change.
07:42:57scorchePaul_The_Nerd: unless you wanted to count each change one by one ;)
07:43:00Paul_The_NerdAny bets on how many people will get upset?
07:43:34scorche4 or more
07:43:40Paul_The_NerdI suspect there will be people quite upset about the lack of a forum for their player.
07:43:56fatherfork1 or more
07:43:59Mikachuis that not a good thing to have?
07:44:04Paul_The_NerdAs it is, there's at least one person irritated I haven't move X5 out of the "New Ports" section and given it the respect it deserves.
07:44:28Mikachuisn't ipod also a new port?
07:44:31Paul_The_NerdMikachu: We're trying to move from player-centric forums to forums that emphasize the fact that it's one piece of software that runs on several types of hardware.
07:44:53Mikachustill, there will be lots of people with playerspecific problems
07:44:54scorchei am excited for the means that i will get to do more reading on the forums overall
07:45:03Mikachui never use the forums though so don't care about me
07:45:07Paul_The_NerdMikachu: Ipod was more supported before the 3.0 freeze than X5 was, which is when it got its forums, during the freeze.
07:45:15sharpescorche: You're just saying that because you have an Expert tag now... :)
07:45:20Paul_The_NerdMikachu: There are *very* few real player specific problems.
07:45:44Paul_The_NerdAt least, outside of "Installation" and removal
07:45:46Mikachui think the criteria for a new port should be there is no stable release for it?
07:45:54Mikachuwhich is currently everything :)
07:45:58fatherforkmost are patch related
07:46:04Paul_The_NerdThere won't actually be any player specific sections any more.
07:46:08Paul_The_NerdOutside of the installation categories.
07:46:20Paul_The_NerdBased on install process, rather than real hardware distinctions.
07:46:20scorchesharpe: nope...before, i just read the archos, general, and new ports sections because i did not want to wade throught he ipod installing problems
07:46:47sharpescorche: So you left the iPod forums to me... how nice...
07:47:12sharpeHey, that means we have like, four Experts now. Haha...
07:47:20Paul_The_NerdAfter the change categories will be stuff like "Playback" "Recording" "Hardware" "User Interface" to focus on the software rather than the players.
07:47:29Paul_The_NerdAnd I've given in and created an "Unsupported Builds" forum.
07:47:41Paul_The_NerdI'm hoping that naming it that makes it pretty clear not to ask questions about them outside that forum

07:50:20Paul_The_NerdWe're hoping so.
07:50:35Paul_The_NerdIt may confuse people, or irritate them, but it should help focus discussion where it actually belongs.
07:50:35sharpeAhh, I suppose I'll go move some unsupported build posts now...

07:51:24Paul_The_Nerdsharpe: I'd like to just move the "Major" threads there, which will come at the real change. People asking questions about unsupported builds, and being yelled at by me to post in the right place, should probably mostly go to trash
07:51:37Paul_The_NerdI'd like it to try to be organized at one thread per build in that forum, if at all possible
07:52:10scorchehrm....i am just picking a forum, and moving backwards
07:52:37sharpeSo just the actual unsupported build post to the right forum?
07:53:25Paul_The_NerdYeah. And most of those shouldn't be moved yet since they're very active
07:53:44Paul_The_NerdThe plan is to move them there, and change the thread topic to something like "Ipod 5G, 4G, Nano: Senab's Experimental"
07:53:47sharpeWas going to say it shouldn't take long, not may are after page three...
07:54:28Paul_The_NerdWhat I plan to do is move the first three pages of every forum on sunday, regardless of back-page progress, then hide the old forums, finish working through them over time, and remove them once they're done.
07:54:50scorchePaul_The_Nerd: should posts with no reply after a question go in the trash? (these are posts from 2004 that still have not gotten an answer)
07:55:03sharpeWow, I just realized. Searching for the posts with a certain age will be so much easier.
07:55:08Paul_The_NerdI was gonna try to move the back-pages all first, but it's slower than I expected just to do it, and I ended up busy this week.

07:55:54Paul_The_Nerdscorche: Yeah, basically any post you feel is irrelevant, or useless for people to search for, or just simply outdated "OMG the WIKI IS MISSING" should go there.
07:56:03sharpeI would say month old posts are a good cut-off date?
07:56:04Paul_The_NerdI'll review them before permanent deletion anyway.
07:56:31Paul_The_Nerdsharpe: I can actually prune all posts older than a certain age, ruling out stickies, but I've decided not to do that just yet.
07:57:09scorcheif we are going to prune, i will go from page 4 forwards then
07:57:19Paul_The_NerdI'm probably not pruning.
07:57:23sharpeI meant that for using the search to find, to move to their new forum.
07:57:28Paul_The_NerdIf I do, though, it'll be at the one year mark, or so
07:57:49scorchemeh...then i will keep at it the way i am
07:58:38Paul_The_NerdI just don't really like the idea of arbitrarily pruning
07:59:03sharpeJust because nobody's replied to it in a year, doesn't mean it's not worth reading... :D
07:59:05Paul_The_NerdI already deleted a post I thought was worthless and got a PM asking me why I did it, because the person was subscribed to the thread, still hoping for an answer on a year 'n a half old post.
07:59:24scorchepatient fellow
07:59:38scorchewe dont get many of those 'round here
07:59:47sharpescorche: I was about to say that.
07:59:52fatherforkno, because I want it now
08:00:06Mikachuhye guys can you help me? /part
08:01:18scorchePaul_The_Nerd: moving the items should be enough pruning...i just got through one telling the other person that we dont yet have a gmini port =)
08:01:34scorcheplus, there are many valid archos hardware issues that are older
08:01:55Paul_The_NerdI much prefer human pruning.
08:02:51aliaskThe wiki is dead...
08:03:20Paul_The_NerdOh, and things for the Announcements forum are primarily stuff like the one I put there (Bagder's announcement of the 2.5 freeze) but as well things like when it was announced that the playback engine rewrite might cause all kinds of funky problems (there were actually three identical posts for that one, in hardware specific forums, back then)
08:04:22sharpePaul_The_Nerd: Should something like be moved to the Unsupported builds forum?
08:05:13Paul_The_NerdYup. Change the title to "iPod Nano: JiC.420's build"... Always include the author's name in the title, as well as what they choose to call it if the build has an actual name.
08:05:27sharpeRight then.
08:05:31Paul_The_NerdI feel like showing the author's name is the best way to differentiate what build it is. I'm tired of having 4 or 5 different "Experimental" builds
08:05:41scorcheoo...we used to have an archos installer?
08:08:01Paul_The_NerdThere is one with 2.5
08:09:26scorcheas if it isnt easy enough to just unzip to root...

08:12:47scorchePaul_The_Nerd: might i suggest that for the *new* posts in the hardware, we make a rule to preface the topic name with applicable hardware devices?
08:14:06Paul_The_Nerdscorche: That is in fact planned.
08:14:41Paul_The_NerdThere's going to be a "GUIDELINES FOR POSTING IN THIS FORUM" sticky in each forum, applicable to all future posts, and I plan to be stricter about enforcing them after the change.
08:14:59scorchealright...just making sure =)
08:15:04sharpeI think the caps should be included in that sticky title.
08:15:09Paul_The_NerdIn fact the idea is for those, and a category FAQ, to be the only two stickies in each forum with maybe a few small exceptions.

08:30:36sharpePaul_The_Nerd: Would this naming convention be okay? 'Target(s): Author's "<NameOfBuild"> Build'
08:34:13amiconnBagder: Something is wrong with the script that decides whether a commit triggers a build. Committing changes to /apps/plugin/lib only should still trigger a build, but it didn't...
08:36:10amiconnOdd. Now the build started - after the change appeared on the frontpage
08:36:25sharpeamiconn: It's trying to play tricks on you?
08:37:20Paul_The_Nerdsharpe: That sounds good
08:37:29midkayPaul_The_Nerd: i don't suppose whatever forum system we use has some kind of sub-forum capability? boards "within" other boards..
08:37:35sharpeAlright, since I already did it.
08:37:43Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: It actually does.
08:37:54Paul_The_NerdI haven't tried it, but it claims to at least
08:37:59Paul_The_NerdI saw an option for making child-boards
08:38:01midkayPaul_The_Nerd: might be something to think about for e.g. the Hardware boards.
08:38:21sharpeThat sounds good...
08:38:37Paul_The_NerdHow would you recommend splitting it? Because it's not going to be for targets.
08:39:09Paul_The_NerdSomething like "ARM, SH1, M68K" or "SWCODEC, HWCODEC" or something?
08:39:24midkayPaul_The_Nerd: no, maybe more like.. hm.. there are several ways you could do it..
08:40:26midkaylike instead of one Hardware board.. have one sub-board for each of the four main brands' boards.
08:40:27Paul_The_NerdOffer up suggestions, then. :)
08:41:02midkayjust for things that seem very general and could use splitting up you could give the manufacturer boards their own subforum instead.
08:41:25hotwire_does anyone have the current assignments for the jogwheels on the iriver lcd remotes?
08:42:07Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: The problem is, if I split it by manufacturer, once more anyone with an H300 will post questions randomly there, just because they don't think about it.
08:42:12hotwire_ie which buttons are programmed as which BUTTON_RC_???
08:42:29midkayPaul_The_Nerd: what do you mean? we already have said manufacturer boards. Archos boards, Iriver boards, Apple boards..
08:42:36Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Those are going away.
08:42:50midkayPaul_The_Nerd: .. well, what are they going to be replaced by?
08:43:17Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: There are almost no real hardware specific questions, other than "What button do I press to do this?" which is in the manual anyway
08:43:25scorchemidkay: look at the are a should be able to see them
08:43:40Paul_The_NerdQuestions that are hardware specific either relate to installation, which had manufacturer specific boards, or related to implementing said hardware, which goes in the general "Hardware" board.
08:43:47midkayscorche: of course i can see them. i see ARCHOS, IRIVER, APPLE BOARDS. can you NOT see them?
08:43:58Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Notice the category name. "Installation"
08:44:00scorchemidkay: i am referring to the new boards
08:44:06midkayscorche: those are new boards.
08:44:18midkayPaul_The_Nerd: i understand.. so why are these boards even there if they'll be removed?
08:44:28scorchemidkay: no they arent
08:44:32scorchethose are going away
08:44:42midkayscorche: they ARE, but they are also NEW boards.
08:44:49scorchethe installation only
08:44:51Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: In the new boards section, they're in the 'Installation' category
08:44:51midkayi just learned that they're going away, can you read?
08:44:52Paul_The_NerdThose are staying
08:45:04Paul_The_NerdThose are for questions regarding manufacturer-specific installations.
08:45:17markunPaul_The_Nerd: Can you move the last post in "Where did the Fonts go?" to a new thread?
08:45:26Paul_The_NerdBut hardware-specific questions regarding say, implementing a remote on X, or getting the USB working on Y, just go in Hardware
08:45:49Paul_The_Nerdmarkun: The "georgian" one?
08:45:57markunI was about to reply
08:46:31midkayalright, Paul_The_Nerd - but here's what i'm saying. since the Hardware board covers *every* target, it might be useful to split it up with Apple/Iriver/Archos subforums.
08:46:41midkaynot create seperate boards for each, but *sub* forums, if this allows.
08:46:47Paul_The_NerdSubforums work.
08:47:10midkaysince they don't take up so much space and they allow using the "general" hardware board for non-target-specific questions.
08:47:17Paul_The_NerdBut I'd rather not name them after manufacturers, or it gives the idea that they're for any manufacturer-specific questions, so long as the person *thinks* that the question is unique to that hardware, rather than for questions about HARDWARE.
08:47:19Paul_The_NerdWhich is my concern.
08:47:33Paul_The_NerdI think ARM, M68K and SH1 makes it more clear that it's for hardware discussion.
08:47:39sharpeWhy not "Apple Hardware?"
08:47:47midkayhm.. that makes it a little confusing though..
08:47:58scorchePaul_The_Nerd: i would think that that would confuse a lot of people
08:47:59midkayespecially since that groups e.g. iaudio and iriver together.. right?
08:48:05markunPaul_The_Nerd: I think we should create a wiki page describing which ranges are supported by all the fonts
08:48:12 Quit RoC_MM ("Leaving")
08:48:30Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: And also groups the H10 with iPods.
08:48:42Paul_The_NerdWhich is perfectly fair, since it really is an iPod Mini.
08:48:48Paul_The_NerdOr at least 70% of one
08:48:53midkaybut iAudio and iRiver are entirely different.
08:48:57Paul_The_NerdNot really
08:49:02midkaybasically. they share the same .. chipset or whatever..
08:49:12midkaythat's about it..
08:49:12Paul_The_NerdThere's a lot of similarity between it and the H300
08:49:26markunPaul_The_Nerd: georgian font is now sticky :)
08:49:28Paul_The_NerdSeveral of the other chips inside I believe are from the same lines. Like the PCF50606 or whatever.
08:49:34Paul_The_Nerdmarkun: I thought I unstickied it.
08:49:47midkaythere might be between the iPod Color and H300 - even more than iaudio/iriver ..
08:50:02Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: The only similarity there is the screen resolution though.
08:50:05midkayPaul_The_Nerd: honestly i think it's confusing and rather unfairly/weirdly groups players..
08:50:17midkaywhat's in common between iAudio X5 and iRiver players then?
08:50:36sharpemidkay: The i.
08:50:43midkayha. haaaa...
08:50:43markunPaul_The_Nerd: would be nice to have a visual division between the sticky and other posts, like they have on misticriver now
08:50:51Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Well, a lot of the necessary code for audio playback is similar, as well as assembly-optimization, I believe the battery fix for the H300 was implemented in almost exactly the same way on X5.
08:50:58markunanyway, have a nice weekend
08:51:18scorchePaul_The_Nerd: i agree...i think that if we named the sub-fourms that, it would scare off a lot of people even if we were to define them in a sticky
08:51:19midkayPaul_The_Nerd: just results of the behind-the-scenes chipset or whatever.. and the X5 happened to get a similar fix, oooh :)
08:51:53Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: The idea is that the hardware forums are where people can talk about what's necessary to get hardware working. An X5 developer is more likely to be able to help an H300 developer than an Portalplayer developer, simply because the architecture itself for playback and stuff falls withing the same general areas.
08:52:01midkayPaul_The_Nerd: just my thoughts. chipset-naming scares people off and groups players unfairly.. if you're going to do that may as well just toss out the subforum idea.
08:52:13Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: The hardware forum is ABOUT behind the scenes chipsets though. *hardware*
08:52:22midkayPaul_The_Nerd: but if we group them more appropriately it won't MATTER that someone might be more "likely" to help another.
08:52:49midkayexcuse the very rough analogy, but that's like saying if you're a mechanic you might be able to fix my bike. why not just call the bike repairman instead?
08:52:56BgerPaul_The_Nerd: the basic similarities between iAudio & iriver (apart from the 'i') are: coldfire v2 core, USB host (but different chips, no docs for iaudio's one), colour screen, iirc the radio chip is the same
08:52:56Paul_The_NerdThe hardware forums is for questions and discussions of very specific hardware. Like getting USB support working on the iPod by reverse engineering the low level code from the firmware.
08:53:25sharpeThat's oddly specific.

08:53:57midkaymeant to alt-tab, and hit ctrl+w instead..
08:54:08midkayPaul_The_Nerd: possibly.
08:54:19Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: It's not for general discussion of specific players. It's for focused discussion on actual hardware problems relating to getting individual chips working and such.
08:54:42Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: For example, talking about using an ipod, in general, wouldn't go there, but talking about working on a driver for the scrollwheel would.
08:54:44midkay.. okay, but then how many of those posts will we get? what's the point of the forum? maybe a once a month post about some chip?
08:55:01midkayhow many new drivers need to be or will get written? is it even worth having it?
08:55:07Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: As well, the slow codec speeds on the iPod go in "Playback" not "Hardware" since it's actually a playback engine issue, and not implementation of a certain chipset, that causes it.
08:55:12scorchemidkay: it is also used for say, "my hard drive doesnt seem to be working"

08:55:43Paul_The_NerdThe hardware forum is for hardware modification, and code to implement hardware.
08:55:50midkay<Paul_The_Nerd> Or "How do I replace the batteries in a Recorder V2?"
08:55:54scorchemidkay: where did he say that it is not for this?
08:55:56midkay^^ so that's a hardware post you're saying?
08:56:05midkayscorche: could you shut your mouth for a moment?
08:56:14Mikachuit certainly isn't software
08:56:17Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: What about that isn't hardware?
08:56:26midkayokay, so please everyone just LISTEN... here's what you're suggesting.
08:56:49Paul_The_NerdIt's a forum for questions *about* hardware, not hardware-specific questions.
08:57:40midkaygroup the forums by chipset type (coldfire, ARM, whatever) because it's for that kind of discussion from people about "Writing drivers" or whatever.. yet we're more likely to get questions on replacing batteries or harddrives.
08:57:55midkaywhat sort of guy who walks in wondering how to replace batteries knows that "oh, this is a coldfire target, right!"?
08:58:15Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: You *can* still post in "General Hardware" even if there are subforums.
08:58:19midkaythe ratio of "i need help doing this to my player" to "let's write a driver for this chipset" will be about 100:1.
08:58:31midkayso why name things in favor of the "1"?
08:58:37*Paul_The_Nerd never suggested subforums.
08:58:46midkaywe were just talking about those..
08:58:49Paul_The_NerdThey were your idea. I only suggested names, thinking you saw for it a need that I didn't.
08:59:04scorchePaul_The_Nerd: i still think that it is a bad idea to group them that really would scare/confuse off many people
08:59:08midkaythe need was playerspecific, and you thought architecture was more important.
08:59:23midkayPaul_The_Nerd: i had already suggested player/mfr types.
08:59:30Paul_The_NerdGive me a way to make them player specific where we won't get posts of people asking what button to do something then?
08:59:45midkayPaul_The_Nerd: "Archos hardware", "iriver hardware"?
08:59:53Paul_The_NerdStill gonna get button questions.
09:00:05Paul_The_NerdThe buttons are hardware.
09:00:18Paul_The_NerdI think it'd be better just not to split, actually
09:00:22Paul_The_NerdI doubt it'll be busy enough.
09:00:22midkayokay, so what stops them from wandering into hardware as-is to ask about buttons?
09:00:37midkayit'll be the same thing.
09:00:43midkay"how do the buttons work".
09:00:48Paul_The_NerdIf it's *just* called "Hardware" and there's "User Interface" right next to it, I'm hoping more of the button traffic will go there.
09:00:48scorchei think that it would be just fine to simply have the people posting preface it
09:00:54midkayor are "Archos hardware" and "Hardware" magically different somehow?
09:01:35midkayPaul_The_Nerd: maybe subforums don't work as i expect, but they'd go WITHIN Hardware in my thoughts instead of between it and "user interface".
09:01:41midkayso you'd only get them if you were in the Hardware boards.
09:01:49midkayand thus you wouldn't be asking button questons.
09:02:09Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: I still don't think Hardware will be busy enough to need it.
09:02:10 Join Kohlrabi [0] (
09:02:22midkayPaul_The_Nerd: maybe not, you're right.
09:02:27midkayso what about, say, User Interface?
09:02:35midkaythat'll be busy as all hell.
09:02:36Paul_The_NerdAnd manufacturer-specific categories is much worse of an idea than architecture based.
09:03:12Paul_The_NerdI'm hoping that UI won't end up too busy either, since I'm going to be harsher about locking posts where people don't read the manual.
09:03:21midkayso what *will* be busy?
09:03:30scorcheipod installation
09:03:58scorchebut, this way, the board will get much more even distribution
09:04:04midkay.. why? we'll get a lot more UI/engine/Doom questions than requests for assistance with simple instructions.
09:04:23scorchedoom would go into plugins
09:04:50midkayright. so *that* would be busy, and i just ASKED what would be busy, and you said "ipod installation".
09:05:16Paul_The_NerdWell the idea is for the boards to be significantly less busy, because where to look for answers will be more apparent.
09:05:31Paul_The_NerdRight now fully half the answers to peoples' questions are in "General Discussion" but nobody looks there, instead sticking to H100 or whatever.
09:05:49midkaythat's like saying "what are some major species on the planet?" and getting a response of "maggots, etc" we are just arguing for the benefit of simply doing it >_>
09:06:10Paul_The_NerdThe idea is to entirely strip the idea of asking questions about specific players.
09:06:20Paul_The_NerdSince 90% of the software is the same on each player, except maybe keymappings.
09:06:25midkayPaul_The_Nerd: alright, i'll wait it out and see what you're up to.. we're not on the same page, i don't think we're even in the same book..
09:06:28Paul_The_NerdAnd the only significant difference is the install process.
09:06:39Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: The proposal has been in the wiki and the forum for months...
09:07:14midkayPaul_The_Nerd: it changes and i haven't bothered to read it, and now that it's taking shape i'm not really at liberty to say anything because it's "work in progress"..
09:07:31Paul_The_NerdIt hasn't changed for at least a month. =/
09:07:36midkayit sounds like you've got things under control so i'd be glad to leave it at that.
09:08:04midkayPaul_The_Nerd: there are many ways of doing things, i can suggest one and you can suggest another.. it's just frustrating to even consider all the possibilities and how they tie together..
09:08:06 Join jaczehack [0] (
09:08:13Paul_The_NerdBut the whole idea of the revamp was to move away from "iPod with Rockbox" and "H100 with Rockbox" and go to "Rockbox, which runs on several players"
09:08:34Paul_The_NerdAs it is, too many have the impression that it's actually different on each one.
09:09:00midkayPaul_The_Nerd: just consider that i ask these questions about a bunch of boards and then you have to go into this long explanation about what they are and aren't for that i wasn't aware of.. make sure it ends up quite self-explanatory.
09:09:11midkayin your mind it might work out well but everybody else needs to understand the structure the same.
09:09:26Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Yeah. I'm aware a LOT of users won't understand the new structure.
09:09:39scorchemidkay: there will be stickys in each forum as well to help the transition
09:09:42midkayjust make sure everything is very aptly named and laid out..
09:09:46Paul_The_NerdI'm actually going to sticky posts in each forum with a capslocked title explaining what sort of posts belong there, and why.
09:09:48 Join linuxstb_ [0] (
09:09:53midkayscorche: gosh, thanks for pointing out the absolutely obscure.
09:10:18midkaythere're always stickies and i think they get read by about 5% of users, once.. if fully...
09:10:28scorchemidkay: then, Paul_The_Nerd does his usual and clarifies me =)
09:10:31midkayif someone has a problem he darts into the first board and goes "help my archos is doing this"
09:11:06Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Yep. And I'm hoping since there's not going to be any board with "Archos" in the name except "Installation on Archos" that maybe he'll go into "Playback" if what it's doing isn't playing music.
09:11:07midkaynobody feels like researching how things should work and how the structure will help them find their answer.. they want help tailored to their exact description.
09:11:18sharpeHuman nature?
09:11:19midkayPaul_The_Nerd: makes sense.
09:11:25midkaysharpe: um, yes?
09:11:36 Join evilnick [0] (
09:11:49Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: That's the intent anyway. Because it's very very rare a playback issue will affect exactly one target.
09:12:00midkayPaul_The_Nerd: i understand.
09:12:08Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Anyway, sorry for the argument. Hopefully this all works out.
09:12:23Paul_The_NerdIt may not be smooth, but I think it'll end up with more constructive forums in the long term.
09:12:34midkayPaul_The_Nerd: don't get me wrong - you're doing quite well, and i see how this is improving. :) i'm just having trouble commenting i guess since it's kind of rounding out as we speak.
09:13:15Paul_The_Nerdmidkay: Well, things can also be tweaked later, if a forum ends up particularly busy or whatnot.
09:13:19midkaynot that you're doing it wrong at all, just suggestions "for the end" regardless of the current situation: think about it from a retard's view and make sure everything is very self-explanatory and intuitive, all that :)
09:13:42Paul_The_NerdYeah. That's why I wanted to avoid using manufacturer names. A skimming retard may just see those and hop to them. ;)
09:13:50Paul_The_NerdThough with subforums, they don't show up on the front page, so that would help
09:13:59sharpe"I like apples... I'll post here."
09:14:13Paul_The_NerdBut manufacturers are particularly bad, since the H100/H300, the iFP 799, and the H10 are three VERY different categories of devices.
09:14:23Paul_The_NerdThe iFP 799 not actually belonging with any of our current targets.
09:14:58midkayPaul_The_Nerd: i understand. kudos on "installation on archos" for example..
09:15:15midkaywhen the target name is in the middle of forum description, that works out well. :)
09:15:18Paul_The_NerdIt's just named Archos for now, but the names and descriptions there aren't final yet.
09:15:39Paul_The_NerdLike all those wonderful typos that were spotted. ;)
09:15:49midkayyeah, it's just more likely people will post fewer dumb questions there than if you named the *category* "Installation" and the board itself "Archos".
09:15:51midkayhaha. :)
09:16:03midkaykeep things inline, etc..
09:16:29Paul_The_NerdI almost named the board "Experimental Builds" but then I realized that "Unsupported" makes the intent 100% clear.
09:17:22midkayexactly. :)
09:17:23 Join sebastianbf [0] (
09:17:40Paul_The_NerdI think careful naming, and the short descriptions beneath the name, will be 90% of what will make or break the new layout
09:18:07sebastianbfhello every1
09:18:22sebastianbfi need some help with the hardware eq settings on ipod 5g
09:19:09Paul_The_NerdWhat problem are you having?
09:19:09linuxstb_What's the problem?
09:20:25hotwire_I finally got some understanding on which remote is which (there is a pretty useful post I found in the forum with images). However the H300 and H100 sims are both using the H100 remote, but there is code to in theory allow you to switch the remote in use by pressing 't'... but if we're forcing the available remote is a toggle really necessary?
09:20:51hotwire_unless there is a way to switch the remote on display, which is beyond me.
09:21:04hotwire_way beyond my abilities at this point, rather
09:21:27sebastianbfsorry for the delay
09:21:35scorchePaul_The_Nerd: so you are creating the "child boards"?
09:21:39sebastianbfth ething is that i changed sthe values of it
09:21:42Paul_The_Nerdscorche: Not at this time
09:21:45sebastianbfand now im getting some distorsion
09:21:47daurn|laptopany devs here?
09:21:48linuxstb_Paul_The_Nerd: Do you own an iFP-799? If so, have you tried Rockbox on it?
09:21:51Paul_The_NerdThe one that's there was an experiment to see what it looked like in display
09:21:52daurn|laptopah, linuxstb
09:21:53scorchePaul_The_Nerd: i just noticed "ARM"
09:21:56sebastianbfso i need the original values pplease
09:22:04sebastianbfso i can restore mine
09:22:33Paul_The_Nerdlinuxstb_: Unfortunately the 799 is the 1gb model, unsupported as of yet. At least, unable to access the disk. Not a major problem, really, since it'll boot then not read any more files, but I was waiting/hoping for at least a proper bootloader
09:22:36linuxstb_sebastianbf: 0dB means "no change" for each of the bands.
09:22:39Paul_The_Nerdrockbox.wma just seems weird.
09:22:51sebastianbfoh ok thanks
09:22:57sebastianbfi will try that now
09:23:25linuxstb_Disabling the hardware EQ simply sets all the gains to 0dB. Enabling it will set the gains to your settings.
09:23:54sebastianbfso setting thevalues to 0db is like turning it off
09:24:04linuxstb_Yes - exactly the same.
09:24:31sebastianbfcan anyone explain me what are those "low shell filter" and all that stuff please?

09:25:23linuxstb_low shelf filter is basically a bass control. High shelf is treble. The other three bands are for the frequencies inbetween.

09:29:44linuxstbI'm not sure what you mean by "button base addresses".
09:30:07daurn|laptopwell, the button hardware addresses, they have a base, and an offset
09:30:07linuxstbAll the button drivers are different.
09:30:18daurn|laptopwhere is the base defined (on a per target basis)
09:30:28sharpeWell, I'm off. Night everyone.
09:30:29 Quit sharpe ("Leaving")
09:30:36linuxstbdaurn|laptop: Not every button driver is like that.
09:31:46linuxstbYou just write your own button driver - so if your driver needs a base and offset, you define them within your button-target.c file.
09:32:10daurn|laptopall devices should have them...
09:33:01linuxstbI'm not sure they do. But even if they do, they should be defined in your button driver .c file - they're not needed outside that file.
09:33:12daurn|laptopi know...
09:33:22daurn|laptop but they're not
09:34:33linuxstbWhat's the problem with just putting them in _your_ button driver .c file?
09:34:51daurn|laptopcause i'm pretty sure they will be defined somewhere else
09:35:02daurn|laptop - with the rest of them...
09:35:07 Quit sebastianbf ()
09:36:09linuxstbYou can't find them because they don't exist. Unless you're talking about the button codes used by Rockbox (nothing to do with the hardware), and those are in firmware/export/button.h
09:36:59daurn|laptopi'll leave that topic for a bit
09:37:16daurn|laptopcould you explain how to structure button_read_device?
09:39:52linuxstbI've never touched the button drivers before, but looking at button-x5.c, it just seems to return a value indicating which buttons are currently pressed. How you write it will depend on your button hardware.
09:40:38daurn|laptopwhat is the whole bitwise shift left thing doing?
09:41:00 Part juxtap
09:41:44linuxstbWhat bitwise shift left?
09:42:03daurn|laptop if (buttons & (1 << 0))
09:42:03daurn|laptop btn |= BUTTON_ON;
09:42:03daurn|laptop if (buttons & (1 << 1))
09:42:03DBUGEnqueued KICK daurn|laptop
09:42:03daurn|laptop btn |= BUTTON_OFF;
09:42:05***Alert Mode level 1
09:42:19linuxstbIn which driver?
09:42:30daurn|laptopits in button_read_device
09:42:39linuxstbThere are lots of button_read_device() functions...
09:42:45linuxstb(one for each target)
09:43:09daurn|laptopi copied mine out of gigabeat
09:43:13daurn|laptopbut all are much the same
09:44:11 Join juxtap [0] (
09:44:18linuxstbI'm guessing buttons will be a variable read from the hardware somewhere, and (buttons & (1 << 1)) checks if a certain bit in that variable is set.
09:44:34linuxstbBut your button driver may be completely different.
09:44:51daurn|laptopi know the hardware addresses of my button
09:44:55daurn|laptopthey are true if pressed
09:45:00daurn|laptopfalse if not
09:45:03daurn|laptop - its not THAT hard
09:47:28linuxstbThen your button_read_device() function needs to read those hardware addresses, and create a single btn variable indicating which buttons are pressed or not.

13:46:59JdGordon.. or anyone can ok it..
13:47:24amiconnok, will do.
13:47:49JdGordonlet me just diff it again so it is the lastest
13:48:41linuxstbBTW, I've started to implement frame-rate limiting in mpegplayer, but am not sure how to commit it - i.e. is it more useful at the moment for CVS mpegplayer to never try to skip frames or limit the maximum speed?
13:49:22JdGordoncommit it but disable it?
13:49:47*JdGordon shower, bbs
13:51:51linuxstbAlso, how accurate are the user timers on the various targets? e.g. if I ask for a 1000Hz timer and use that to update my own tick variable, what can I expect? I obviously never unboost the CPU.

13:57:28JdGordonis the slow part of drawing frames copying it to the lcd or decoding the actual frame?
13:58:08linuxstbThey are both slow, but decoding is slower.
13:58:32linuxstbI would guess about 30% of the time is the display, 70% decoding, but don't quote me on that...
13:59:02JdGordon.. and does it do any pre-decoding? eli_sherer suggested ages ago to decode a half-dozen frames before starting playback and then decode into the buffer to speed things up..?
13:59:52linuxstbI'm not sure how that would speed things up - you would need to copy the decoded frames somewhere...

14:01:51JdGordondecode straight into a buffer, do maybe 10 frames before starting, then copy from buffer->lcd while decoding could sppeed things up a tiny bit?
14:02:46linuxstbYou only have one CPU - how can doing two things at the same time speed it up?
14:03:06linuxstbAnd how would you manage to do two things at the same time?
14:03:39JdGordoni dunno.... magic....?
14:05:22linuxstbAlthough we might have to buffer some video frames on the Coldfires - to enable us to interleave audio and video decoding, maybe swapping IRAM between the two codecs. But on the ipods, we do have two CPUs, so one will just decode and display video as fast as it can, the other will do the same for audio.
14:06:02linuxstbI honestly haven't thought about how to do video and audio decoding at the same time on the Coldfires...

18:42:12SoapIt almost has to be, but I doubt it if by much. Maybe I'll run some tests myself.

18:42:29[HO]volti'll see. right now i'm doing burn-in and/or battery longelivity tests on my iaudio x5 and i've been doing so without headphones... tonight i'll do one with headphones plugged in on volume 0 and report back
18:42:33Mikachucompared to other components i don't think so
18:43:32sugewhats the default folder that i should put my mp3s in?
18:43:39[HO]volti'm doing about 66 songs of 192kbps constant bitrate, 10sec backlight with caption backlight on, and so far it's been going for 12h 45m
18:43:41Mikachuanywhere you feel like
18:43:59sugeso it doesn't have to be within .rockbox?
18:44:10[HO]voltsuge: it should be in root
18:44:14Mikachuyou definitely don't want your music in .rockbox
18:44:15Soapnope, and there is some good reasons not to
18:44:42sugeso create a dir called /music/ in root?
18:44:42Mikachui use /Music
18:44:45sugeand i should be good
18:44:52Mikachuamiconn likes to put all the music directly in the root
18:45:33[HO]voltyou can use /Music, I prefer to make 26 folders (A-Z) and then put my music into them by first letter of artist, and into another folder with the name of the artist, then the song name is just "SongTitle.mp3"
18:46:10SoapI go /music/Artist - Year - Album/
18:46:23SoapI like to be able to scroll through my entire set.
18:46:43[HO]voltSo I would be listening to root/B/Bjork/Desired Constellation.mp3
18:46:56sugesoap - doesn't tagcache give you the familiar ipod interface
18:47:17SoapI don't use tagcache
18:47:37sugelike for example, i got the billboard top 100 songs from 1990-2005... they are all different artists, but im going to keep them in a folder by year
18:47:38sugeaw ok
18:48:12SoapI would be listening to root/music/Bjork - 2004 - Medulla/08 - Desired Constellation.mp3
18:48:25[HO]voltlol :D
18:48:52[HO]voltthat would be a really smart idea though. i dont even know the album of... well... ANY of my songs. :(
18:49:07[HO]voltplus the way you have the folders set up i like how it keeps the albums listed chronologically
18:49:42[HO]voltlol maybe i should spend the next 36 hours and do that to all of my nearly 6000 songs ...
18:50:03SoapI'm a browser, I don't like navigating in and out of a nested folder structure to chase after my next artist.
18:50:26[HO]voltwait, isnt that what you have?
18:50:49[HO]voltor what exactly is a nested folder structure
18:51:07 Join A_M [0] (
18:51:19[HO]voltwhere i have my music in folders A-Z according to first letter
18:52:28SoapYours are nested root/<letter>/<artist>/<mp3s>
18:52:47Soapmine less so root/<album>/<mp3s>
18:53:09[HO]voltiirc you have about 750 albums? or was that another dude
18:53:12MikachuSoap: but you can't easily add all albums by an artist
18:53:34Soapyea, to go from bjork to tricky you need to go back to root, I just exit out of the album folder and scroll down.
18:53:44Soap[HO]volt - yea, ~750
18:54:11SoapMikachu - all, but if I have it go to the next directory automaticly...
18:54:34[HO]voltSoap: so going from Bjork to (insert artist starting with P) you have to hold down for ~300 albums? or is there a better way
18:54:53Soap[HO]volt - ipod, I scoll.
18:55:15Soaptesting....takes less than 3 seconds

19:02:55idnarwas that with rockbox or the cowon firmware?
19:03:12[HO]voltrockbox. i actually have never booted with the default firmware lol
19:03:18idnarhmm, ok
19:03:21idnarwhat codec?
19:03:30[HO]volthmm i don't know what you mean
19:03:37idnarMP3, FLAC, WMA, ...
19:03:47[HO]voltoh lol they were 192kbps mp3
19:04:01idnarmaybe the MP3 decoder isn't as power-hungry
19:04:09idnarmost of mine is FLAC, Vorbis, or Musepack
19:04:26idnarand I don't think I get anywhere near 13 hours
19:04:43[HO]volthow big are those files compared to mp3 files?
19:05:07idnaraverage bitrate on my FLAC files is in the region of 1000Kbps, I think
19:05:18idnarwhich is about 5x as large as your 192Kbps
19:05:51[HO]voltwell, tell me if theres something more complex going on here, but basically a larger file requires more times the mp3 player needs to read from the hard disk, meaning more spinups and more power needs
19:07:16[HO]volti know nothing about the size of RAM of the x5 though - but i assume whatever the size, 8mb for example, it fills up that 8mb of ram and then plays it, then fills again
19:07:27[HO]voltand each time it fills it requires a disk spinup

22:04:06ww2-How do I find out where exactly in the source do I have to add (or remove) it?
22:04:34Mikachulook at the line numbers
22:05:19ww2-yeah, but when I check in the source, it seems to be completely different. The code that corresponds to a given line number in the .rej file isn't the same in the source file.

23:11:17Bagdercan you run the script manually?
23:11:37ww2-let me see
23:12:59Bagdermirak: yes I do
23:13:50mirakBagder: the syntax how to pass and gather parameters is not clear
23:13:51ww2-Bagder: Hum, I'm not very familiar with Linux. I changed to 'rockbox-devel/tools' dir and typed '' + enter, but nothing happened.
23:14:20Bagderww2-: do ./ (with a ./ before the file name to make it search in the current dir)
23:14:29ww2-ah, ok
23:14:51mirakBagder: [v]"+r"(value) that's fot output
23:14:53ww2-user@debian:~/rockbox-devel/tools$ ./
23:14:53ww2--bash: ./ Permission denied
23:15:15Mikachuww2-: chmod +x
23:15:23mirakwhy [v] is added ? I guess %0 could be used instead ?
23:16:08ww2-heh, it works. Thanks to both of you.

23:16:47mirakalso on some tutorials they use =r instead of +r
23:17:50ww2-Mikachu: +x is exec permission?
