00:32:44Davide-NYCQuestion: how can I change the default directory for storing recorded files? (H1x0)
00:33:07Davide-NYCI've tried every ley press and there isnothing in the manual about it.
00:34:01SkramXquestion: how do i unmount it and then format it to FAT32?
00:34:28SkramXif i unmount it i cant do "dd"

00:39:16SkramXnow i can just tell it to eject (but not disconnect the cord), right hcs / ze ?
00:39:46hcsI suppose so, if that's what you want to do, what do you want to do?
00:39:57linuxstb_unmount and eject are different things. You need to unmount it.
00:40:16SkramXOh Okay
00:40:34linuxstb_But you don't use dd on Mac OS X anyway...
00:40:42linuxstb_What instructions are you following?
00:40:46zeosx... no wonder i was confused :p
00:40:51zei was like wtf is eject :p

00:41:52 Quit MarcoPolo (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
00:42:42SkramXlinuxstb_: ?
00:42:48linuxstb_You need to do "diskutil umount /dev/disk1s3" to unmount it.
00:42:57hcslinuxstb_: I found a codec-side fix that I'm going to use rather than try to fix the playback code
00:43:28SkramXlinuxstb_: just FYI, s/umount/unmount
00:43:29KalthareHm, I put in a debugf() routine, and I'm seeing errors from the FAT code about the disk not having 512-byte sectors.
00:43:45 Quit Davide-NYC ("Chatzilla 0.9.75 [Firefox]")
00:45:58linuxstb_SkramX: OK, thanks. There's a mistake in that wiki page then...
00:46:18 Join MarcoPolo [0] (
00:48:55SkramXat , I am stuck as the one for the ipod nano that i have is 14.5.2 and it says i need 14.5.1... big deal
00:50:43linuxstb_That should be fine.
00:51:44Kaltharelinuxstb_: Any idea what can be done about this? Is this gonna take a huge amount of work?
00:51:54 Quit MarcoPolo (Remote closed the connection)
00:51:55linuxstb_But if that's the 1.2 version of the Nano firmware, you'll need to do the actual installation slightly differently to how it's described in that wiki page - Apple changed things, and that wiki page hasn't been updated.
00:52:15SkramXhow do i know?
00:52:39linuxstb_Kalthare: No, I'm not sure what needs to be done.

00:55:18SoapSkramX - read the Windows instructions for the nano v1.2 firmware, and I think you'll figure out what to do on Mac.
00:56:38*amiconn wonders whether the disk really has 2048-byte sectors, or whether this is faked by the UMS driver part in the ipod.
00:57:05amiconnKalthare: Is this the original partioning the ipod came with?
00:57:08SoapKalthare said the partition table looks consistant with 2048-byte secots.
00:57:34amiconnSoap: Yes, but that partition was probably made via USB
00:57:37Soap(if someone is willing to PM me the issue this creates, I'm curious)
00:58:01KalthareI didn't partition it manually. I formatted it with iTunes.
00:59:48*amiconn is curious what would happen if you try to reformat the data partiton manually
00:59:56KalthareI'm trying to get the debug messages from the bootloader. I hit a snag, because putting in an infinite loop seems to make GCC optimize out something important.
01:00:57SkramXso i just found out i have access to a Windows laptop
01:01:13 Join MarcoPolo [0] (
01:01:15SkramXall i need to do is install itunes and plug in my ipod and it will detect and format it for windows itunes?
01:01:56SoapI thought you were trying to install Rockbox?
01:01:58linuxstb_SkramX: Yes, Windows itunes will format it as FAT.
01:02:03SoapYou don't need itunes in your life.
01:02:19Soapoh, sorry, I missed the part where it was an HFS ipod.
01:02:25SkramXSoap: first i need itunes or to myself format FAT32
01:02:26SkramXright :)
01:02:44SkramXso I can go format it on windows then plug it into mac osx and even if itunes starts up it will stay fat32?

01:25:42SoapMany people have asked for a basic ebook/HTML/pdf viewer on Rockbox. I was thinking maybe porting a Plucker reader would be more reasonable. Not only is it opensource, it is designed from the ground up to display texts (marked up and not) on a variety of small screens colour and B/W.
01:26:38FebsSeems to me that would be a useful feature.
01:27:16SoapIt was designed with the PalmPilot in mind, which I believe means it must be fixed point???
01:28:10zei'm not sure why such a thing would use floating point anyway
01:29:00zeor anything but intigers
01:29:08SoapIt (plucker reader) requires conversion on the PC side of things, but I think that is very reasonable to expect, and there are plenty of official and third party conversion programs out there to sync webpages, RSS feeds, etc.

02:16:21KalthareI just reformatted the partition with a 512-byte logical sector size, and now Linux won't even mount it. FAT: logical sector size too small for device (logical sector size = 512)
02:18:12KalthareIs there a chance this quadruple-sector problem is what's giving ipodpatcher so much trouble?
02:19:13linuxstb_Probably. ipodpatcher uses the Rockbox code to parse the partition table.
02:21:41KalthareI'm gonna go get some food. I'll keep trying at this problem, but I really think it's bigger than me. :(

05:43:43volti forget if it was Scorche or Shapre (I think Scorche) but whichever did the ipod thing with keybank, anything happen from that yet?
05:44:08hav0ki need more context volt
05:44:10pagefaultsome other fellow here had ipl on it here
05:44:49hav0kyeah, i was reading somewhere that they put ipodlinux on it and then put rockbox on it, and it was supposed to be easier
05:44:57hav0kbut i like the idea of doing it straight up
05:45:04pagefaultwith my iriver it was easy
05:45:06hotsodaive used ipod linux on my 4g
05:45:07volthav0k there was some offer key had in late august to early september where if you open a keybank acct you get a free ipod, just throwing that question out there to see if he's at his computer or something :)
05:45:17pagefaultI just deleted some files and replaced the bootloader and rebooted
05:45:51hotsodahonestly the interface is a lot better than rockbox's, but it had trouble playing my mp3 files at high bitrates
05:46:18pagefaultbut I did flash it to a USB mass storage device from MTP device
05:46:23pagefaultI hate that media player crap
05:46:54pagefaultso it's like a korean h10 now
05:46:56pagefaultbut in english
05:47:25pagefaultthe EU has a volume limit on it
05:47:29pagefaultthanks to some stupid french law
05:47:43hav0kso is it best to just follow the instructions on the site? am i supposed to format it?
05:48:03Soaponly need to format it if it is not FAT32
05:48:08Soapie, HFS+
05:48:15Soapthey came in no other FS
05:48:52hav0kim pretty sure its already fat32
05:49:50hav0kjust kidding, its in vfat
05:49:59pagefaultsame thing?
05:50:05hav0ki dont know
05:50:34hav0k"windows virtual fat"
05:50:39Soapvfat isn't a filesystem, it is
05:50:54Soapthat's cool
05:50:58hav0kso i should format it?
05:51:04Soapno need
05:51:08hav0kalright, cool
05:51:12Soapyou can put your music wherever you want.
05:51:33SoapThe only reason it would be more complicated than that is if you are using tagcache.
05:52:08pagefaultlets you browse by id3 tags
05:52:14Soapa tag-based database of tracks, much like (but not the same as) the ipod's native database view.
05:52:15pagefaultbut you need to build the db
05:52:33pagefaultor wait for the player to do it
05:52:39hav0kso do i need to do anything before i install the bootloader?
05:53:00hav0kextract the apple firmware
05:53:10Soapfollow the instructions to the letter
05:53:12Soapread the manual
05:53:31hav0kwhat do you mean by manual? the instructions
05:53:32Soapsearch the forums for any questions, that kind of thing.
05:53:37SoapThe manual
05:53:47Soapnot the wiki instructions, though you should start ther.
05:53:57SoapThere is a proper manual also.
05:54:50hav0koh, okay, ill look for it... im using the instructions off the home page
05:55:02pagefaultwell good luck with it
05:55:12SoapClick "daily builds" link on the left side of the website, and there is a pdf manual link under each targert, and also a manual link at the bottom of the page for html formatted, etc.
05:55:21pagefaultif you follow them you should have no problem
05:55:36pagefaultjust read them very carefully
05:56:05hav0kyeah dont want to mess up my ipod
05:56:31pagefaultI wonder if it's possible actually
05:56:44hav0khaha, to mess up my ipod?
05:56:53pagefaultdo you do any flashing?
05:57:09hotsodaas long as you can mount it, you can't really brick it
05:57:23hav0ki dont do any flashing

11:10:03linuxstb_Kalthare: So what's going on?
11:10:46Kaltharelinuxstb_: It's like amiconn said, actually. The hard drive's actually got 512-byte sectors, but it's presented as 2048-byte sectors over the USB connection, presumably for faster transfers.
11:11:25Kaltharelinuxstb_: So the FAT code needs to be modified to be able to handle a logical sector size of 2048 on a physical one of 512.
11:12:17linuxstb_Have you looked at the FAT code?
11:12:38 Quit powr-toc (Remote closed the connection)
11:12:50Kaltharelinuxstb_: To say the least. ;) I've been trawling through it all day.
11:13:26linuxstb_Open up firmware/common/disk.c and go to line 79.
11:13:32amiconnSounds like quite some work. The FAT driver currently assumes sector_size == 512, and refuses to work with any other size
11:14:01linuxstb_Isn't it just a case of multiplying size and start by 4 in disk_init() ?
11:14:07amiconnAnd here it's even a mix...
11:14:24amiconnThe disk still has 512-byte sectors
11:14:35Kaltharelinuxstb_: Actually, the partition map gets translated automatically by the iPod.
11:14:42amiconnJust the filesystem is laid out as if it were 2048-byte sectors

13:11:30HikerDunno if anybody remembers the other day, but I mentioend how Fade On Pause/Top doesn't fade smoothly, it fades a bit, stays at that level, fades a bit, stays at that level then finishes fading
13:11:55Hikerwell, it isn't just fading it seems. If I adjust the volume, it does the same thing
13:12:08HikerI enabled the status bar and can actually see it pausing
13:12:37LearI've seen "uneven" response sometimes since the new scheduler was added. Maybe the same problem here...
13:12:45HikerI'll mov emy finger at an even pace aroudn the wheel and can see the volume % change, pause, change, pause

13:14:44Hikerlear: I know the wheel is being responsive cos it works perfectly in the file menu. It's the actual volume part that does the pausing

13:15:57Learhiker: I'd guess it is the ui thread that doesn't get enough cpu time in some situations. More likely to happen during playback.
13:16:21Hikeryeah. It really looks that way

13:16:43stripwaxLear/Hiker - the new scheduler should fix that, when it's finished.
13:16:43Hikerit happens 100% of th etime, btw. the volume pausing and fading
13:16:52Hikercrossfade is unaffected tho
13:17:00Hikerok. cool

13:17:27stripwaxLear - sort of
13:17:42Hikerso I dunno if it happens on that as well
13:17:56linuxstbI thought the new scheduler was finished, but the problem is the slow codecs on the ipod... i.e. with the old scheduler, music would have paused instead of the UI?
13:17:58Hikerhas anybody else using different targets to the ipod nano mentioned it?

13:43:25PaulJam_I was just wondering, wouldn't it be a good idea to make the size of the font cache target specific? since the updates to the nimbus 12 font i had the problem, that the disk was often spinning up while browsing menus or the filetree (with dircache enabled)
13:44:03linuxstbLear: I've got a feeling profiling didn't work in libfaad. m68k-elf-gcc struggled to compile it normally (various internal compiler errors).
13:44:07LearNeat. Seems to have fixed an ICE on a profiling build of libfaad by re-introducing a slightly modified inline asm function that was said to provoke an ICE... :)
13:44:46Learlinuxstb: i.e., with profiling enabled on libfaad. So yes, there was a reason it was disabled...
13:44:46markunPaulJam_: it would be even nicer if it could be configured from the menu
13:44:54PaulJam_for me increasing the font cahche fixed it (or at least i think that it was that that i did) and i don't think a few KB less audiobuffer don't hurt that much.
13:45:08linuxstbPaulJam_: Why target-specific? It just sounds to me like the font cache is too small in general.
13:48:24Learon 2 MB targets one might want to avoid any increase...
13:48:27PaulJam_linuxstb: i thought target specific, because of targets that dont have much memory
13:48:53Learand there seems to be a need to check memory usage on those targets.

14:27:58LearSBR is used in HE-AAC.
14:28:17LearSo you need it, to (fully) decode some low-bitrate files.
14:28:38linuxstbWhat about PS ?
14:29:01LearAlso part of HE-AAC, I believe (it's parametric stereo).
14:29:46 Join aliask [0] (
14:30:10LearHE-AACv1 adds SBR, HE-AACv2 also adds PS.
14:31:32linuxstbRemoving the SBR and PS code reduces aac.codec to about 95KB on Coldfire (from over 200KB).
14:32:13LearQuite a difference...
14:34:10linuxstbHave you tried any HE-AAC files in Rockbox?
14:36:57linuxstbI'm guessing they are more CPU intensive than LC-AAC?
14:37:01LearNot many files will play anyway, so I haven't looked much for tht kind of files.
14:37:20linuxstbSo what do you think about ripping out that code?
14:38:19linuxstbBTW, what file did you get the ICE in when enabling profiling?
14:38:43LearSome low-bitrate files will sound worse (or not play at all), so I'm not so sure about it. For flash devices, support could be nice.
14:39:06 Join pondlife [0] (
14:39:27linuxstbYou could try disabling SBR in common.h
14:39:53LearBut using a slightly modified version of the asm MUL_C fixed that.
14:41:20linuxstbSo you've got MUL_C working?
14:44:20LearBtw, you don't happen to know which fft tables are the most commonly used in cfft.c?
14:45:10linuxstbNo, I don't know.
14:45:20linuxstbWhich version of gcc?
14:46:47amiconnThe aac size reduction would probably help to reduce the codec buffer size - if vorbis wasn't as large as it is...
14:47:00amiconnIt's the second-largest codec after aac
14:47:05LearBut vorbis isn't that large, is it?
14:47:12amiconnIt's almost the same
14:47:19linuxstbAbout 100KB
14:47:30amiconnYou have to compare the whole memory size it occupies, not only the loadable part
14:47:53linuxstbTrue. Plus I think vorbis is one of the heavy malloc users as well.
14:48:33LearIndeed. Some files currently require some 600 KB...
14:48:33amiconnOn coldfire, aac occupies 387332 bytes. vorbis occupies 331820 bytes
14:48:46amiconnThat's binary + bss
14:49:22amiconnThe malloc buffer is separate, and a thing I would really like to get rid of
14:51:52LearWould be nice, but quite a bit of codec work required for that...

14:58:44amiconnNo. 3 size-wise is mpc.codec
14:59:32LearVorbis uses a fair amount of bss data to reduce the need for malloc (and avoid stack overflows)...
14:59:35pondlifeAny mileage in allowing the user to configure codec buffer sizes? For people who only use MP3 for example... Obviously this would result in codec failure if they tried to use a larger one....

15:05:38amiconnBut there is an different optimisation that could be done without changing the codec loader itself - the swap buffers for voice<->main codec could be allocated with buffer_alloc, only occupying the size for swapping mpa.codec
15:06:37 Quit Criamos (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
15:06:43amiconnThe necessary values are stored in the codec header
15:08:27amiconnThe other option would be a statically linked voice codec, only leaving the iram swap
15:09:10pondlifeBut would that waste a little space on non-voiced configurations?
15:09:44linuxstbYes, but I wouldn't object to it if it helped make the voice code simpler and more reliable.
15:10:06pondlifeMe too, but the swapping would still be needed
15:10:16pondlifeThat's the main problem
15:10:27amiconnYes, but iram only
15:10:50pondlifeYes, but still need the corresponding locking etc.
15:10:51amiconn...and with a dedicated memswap() routine, only one buffer would be needed instead of two
15:11:23pondlifeWe should do that anyway
15:11:31amiconnThe swapping could go away if we had a codec that's efficient without using iram
15:11:37amiconn...or only very little iram
15:11:59amiconnThe very little iram would be what the core currently leaves unused
15:13:09pondlifeHow well does MP3 decoding work without IRAM. Mono and low bitrate of course.

15:13:53amiconnFor voice, 12 or 16kHz mono are sufficient

15:14:03amiconnThey do
15:14:10amiconnCurrent voice files are 12kHz
15:14:10pondlifeWhich SWCODEC target is slowest?
15:14:18linuxstbWhich I guess benefits from having the output samples in IRAM.
15:14:52amiconnOn h1x0, the core currently leaves ~600 bytes of iram unused
15:15:01linuxstbpondlife: ipods are probably the slowest, but removing IRAM usage won't make a big difference. Coldfire is the one that needs testing without iram.
15:15:07amiconnh300 has >6300 bytes, x5 even more
15:15:14pondlifeAha, I have one of those!!
15:15:53amiconnBut I guess that if we need some more iram for the voice codec, overall iram usage could be reviewed and some iram reclaimed
15:16:00pondlifeWhy do we not use all of the IRAM?
15:16:26pondlifeIt still needs adding to the config.h files I guess

15:24:43amiconnBut when it shows up, it shows on the same line the volume setting is placed on, i.e. overlays it.
15:25:09Learlinuxstb: removing ALLOW_SMALL_FRAMELENGTH and perhaps LD_DEC would make AAC a bit smaller... Not sure what they mean though.
15:25:09MmmmSo it does show up, but in the wrong place?
15:25:19linuxstbI'm not sure if this is a good idea, but how about moving the IRAM swapping into the kernel? i.e. the codec thread and voice codec thread would both share the same area of IRAM, and the kernel would take care of the swapping.
15:25:30amiconnLooks rather strange, see here:
15:25:47amiconnYes, but somehow it didn't show up for me...
15:26:02amiconnMaybe it has to do with some trigger setting, will investigate

23:09:33LandusIf a motherboard only supports 266/333/400MHz DIMM sticks, I can't put in a DIMM stick that runs at anything above 400MHz, right?
23:11:00oboDDR1?? You should be able to - you might need to manually clock the speed in the BIOS

23:11:20LandusNo. It's DDR2.
23:11:50LandusI'm still looking at hardware, but I faintly recall something about not being able to excede clock speeds with DDR2 RAM.
23:12:06LandusLeast I think I do, hence the asking.
23:12:38obonot sure - I haven't had a huge amount to do with DDR2
23:12:43linuxstb_Reverie: What's the problem?
23:13:35oboLandus: the issue you were having with the scrobbler patch - were the timestamps in the .scrobbler.log file correct?
23:14:00LandusI didn't check. The've been correct every other time.
23:14:27oboare you setting a manual offset with the perl script?
23:14:46LandusNo. The logfile.
23:15:19obohuh? you're changing the values in the log?
23:15:39LandusIf you change the #TZ/UNKNOWN to #TZ/GMT-5, it'll send the offset as -5 GMT.

23:19:57ReverieOh well, there's no problem.
23:19:59ReverieI installed rockbox.
23:20:01LandusBut if I keep it running during the night, then send them when I wake up, the times are correct to the dot.
23:20:04ReverieI'm just wondering- is there anyway to dual?
23:20:13LandusReverie: What DAP do you own?
23:20:17ReverieLike use the original firmware (apple?) and rockbox?
23:20:19ReverieIpod Nano 4gigs
23:20:27LandusHrm. There might.
23:20:27ReverieSo I could easily switch between two.
23:20:27oboit's dual boot by default
23:20:32LandusI know I can on my Iriver.
23:20:33ReverieHow do I switch back?
23:20:35obohold menu as it boots
23:20:42LandusThere you go.

23:20:54oboyou need to start holding it down right from the point it boots - even before the apple logo
23:21:27ReverieOh, I see.
23:21:34ReverieBut, is there a way to make the original default?
23:21:39ReverieAnd rockbox you have to hold menu?
23:22:13oboyes - you can either change the bootloader code yourself, or use loader2 from the ipodlinux project (to get a gui boot menu)

23:50:16TrunksBut, if I wanted to play doom or um pacman, I need to download things, rightie?
23:50:49oborockbox doesn't detect firewire (it's a bug) - you'll need to reboot and entire the apple firmware, or disk mode
23:51:10oboTrunks: yes - check the wiki pages for each plugin - they'll tell you what you need

23:51:30linoliumobo, what is disk mode?
23:51:35TrunksThanks again
23:51:52 Quit Mmmm ("Byeee")
23:51:54obohold select and play as it boots - you'll need to hard reboot it (by holding select and menu) to exit
23:52:16TrunksIt's black and white.
23:52:22TrunksShould say Disc mode IIRC.
23:52:50linoliumI wasn't evenr aware you could get back into the apple firmware with it installed
23:53:13oboyou can remove the apple firmware if you really feel like it, but the default is to dual boot
23:53:56linoliumone more thing.. in the apple firmware when you turn it off it just goes into sleep mode.. can I get rockbox to do the same thing or does it have to boot down/up every time?

23:54:27oboit has to boot each time - the apple firmware puts it into a hibernation mode, without really powering it off
23:54:31pepie34is the latest ipod-video daily build broken?
23:54:37TrunksOh, and I still can't seem to find this, is there any EASY way to make it so the apple firmware is the normal booting?

23:55:13oboTrunks: the only methods I'm aware of is to change the source code of the bootloader, or use IPLs loader2
23:55:25TrunksDo you know how to change the source code? :o
23:55:26pepie34can have nothing but a black screen when booting seems to be font probleme

23:55:30TrunksOr do I have to figure that out myself?
23:55:45obopepie34: tried clearing the settings? boot with the hold switch on
23:56:00pepie34(I have remove .rockbox and rockbox.ipod again and again)
23:56:13oboTrunks: check the SimpleGuideToCompiling (I think..) on the wiki
23:56:15pepie34where is the settings file?
23:56:17linoliumwhen you turn it off is it normal for one line on the LCD to stay and slowly fade away?
23:56:24Trunkskk, obo
23:56:29pepie34i supossed it was in .rockbox
23:56:32obopepie34: you don't need to remove them - just overwrite with the newer version
23:56:51pepie34yes but where is the settings file
23:57:00obothere is no config file - the settings are held on an otherwise unused sector of the hard drive
23:57:24obojust boot with the hold switch on - that will clear the settings
23:57:56pepie34i don't think it is a good idea to keep settings like this
23:58:11obolinolium: I think that's normal on the 4Gs - it won't do any harm, but it's something that needs fixing
23:58:14pepie34It is one hour i look trought the file tree for this file
23:58:27obopepie34: there is a work in progress to move to config files
