00:28:01hcsI'm trying to build a new decoder, getting the error "section .bss is not within region PLUGIN_RAM", does this mean I'm using too much memory?
00:28:34amiconnYes, and it seems to be far too much
00:28:39amiconncheck the .map file
00:29:31hcsyeah, I'll have to take out some buffers, thanks
00:31:44hcsmono it is
00:32:01amiconn"is not within" probably means the preceding sections are already so big that .bss ends up completely outside the plugin ram
00:32:10hcsit builds now
00:32:14amiconnOtherwise you would see a different message
00:32:24hcsI had a buffer that took up fully half of PLUGIN_RAM

01:29:49markunriiiight ;)
01:30:42hcsit's super-lossy compression, it loses the bad parts of the audio
01:31:34*scorche boggles at hcs

01:33:32*hcs is frustrated and blithering at random on IRC

01:35:14JdGordonhey scorche, can u test out a new recorder build?
01:35:20scorchei can
01:35:24markunThe actual claim from is in fact: "Creative's Sound Blaster® X-Fi XtremeMusic™ brings the revolutionary new Xtreme Fidelity audio standard to the PC. With 24-bit Crystalizer it restores the sparkle lost during MP3/WMA compression..."
01:35:39JdGordonscorche: which target?

01:38:45markunscorche: the Gigabeat S has a feature which also 'restores' the high frequencies lost by MP3 compression.
01:38:49O11can anyone help me understand it?
01:38:54markunIt also cuts the battery time in half
01:38:58O11why does the time start at just over 1 hour?
01:39:01 Quit _FireFly_ ("Leaving")
01:39:03scorchemarkun: but how?
01:39:14markunscorche: by making them up?
01:39:44markunThey call it 'harmonics'. Maybe that gives a clue of what they are doing
01:39:49Genre9mp3They just enhance the sound...this has nothing to do with quality at all!
01:40:08scorcheanything you cant do with an eq?
01:40:37Genre9mp3The trick word is " Psychoacoustics"
01:40:57scorcherelated to "Psychodevelopers"?
01:41:25Genre9mp3You think that the music is more "lively" and "shiny"... but again nothing to do with the _quality_
01:41:54pixelma011: (information explained - time) ;)
01:43:13O11pixelma: thankyou!
01:43:57pixelmasorry about your nick... O11 :)
01:49:14Sinbiosmarkun: they're probably just tricking your mind into thinking there's more detail by using an equalizer or something
01:50:29preglowthey're creating harmonics
01:50:40preglowthis is exactly what sbr does in mp3pro and aacplus
01:51:22Genre9mp3Btw.... does Rockbox support aacplus?
01:51:35PierreTramoit would be great to have an option that could be applied to a folder
01:51:46PierreTramoand which would enable counters of plays of each file
01:52:03PierreTramoand it could suggest a list of files never played
01:52:09PierreTramo(useful for my podcasts, in fact)

01:52:44preglowGenre9mp3: i don't know if we have enough horsepower for it anyway
01:52:56PierreTramodo you think this could be possible/hard to code/interesting?
01:52:57preglowO11: she wrote it with a zero instead of an o
01:53:25O11oh.. it's supposed to be with a zero.. irc just doesn't allow nicks beginning with numbers ;_;
01:53:28Genre9mp3preglow: Same for Mp3pro? (about horse power) - though mp3pro sucks IMO
01:54:09preglowGenre9mp3: dunno, really, i think aac is slightly more cpu hungry in its basic configuration than mp3 is, plus, aacplus also includes parametric stereo which gives even more complexity
01:54:10O11where's the runtime benchtest area on the rockbox website?
01:54:19preglowmp3pro is only mp3 + sbr
01:54:43*Genre9mp3 googles parametric stereo
01:54:56O11is it in the wiki?
01:55:00preglowO11: yup
01:55:40preglowO11: depends on your player?
01:55:43preglowthat's for ipod
01:55:54preglowthat's for iriver
01:56:18preglowwe could probably use a bigger main page including stuff like this

02:00:02Genre9mp3According to the wikipedia article, just the parametric stereo technique makes 24kbps equal to 44kbps
02:00:12Genre9mp3Sounds really promising....
02:00:23O11preglow: sorry.. iriver h320
02:00:30preglowO11: then yes, definitely

02:01:41scorcheO11: yes
02:01:53preglowGenre9mp3: yeah, but that doesn't really tell me how it works
02:01:54O11it says I should introduce myself on irc =D
02:01:57Genre9mp3At least it says the concept there
02:02:12*scorche tips his hat to O11
02:02:12O11can someone give me write permission? or do I need to make an account first..
02:02:17*O11 makes an account
02:02:22scorcheyou need to regiuster of course
02:02:25preglowO11: heh, then you need to find someone that can give you write permission
02:02:28preglowi don't think i can
02:02:43preglowGenre9mp3: yeah, sure, but i want to know more :>
02:02:45scorchepreglow: anyone with write permissions already can do it
02:03:20scorchepreglow: just requires adding them to TWikiUsersGroup
02:03:24Genre9mp3preglow: I'm sure you do! :)
02:03:57preglowscorche: oh
02:04:08preglowthen i can do it :>
02:04:17Genre9mp3really...what's the licensing on these techniques?
02:04:43preglowGenre9mp3: they're probably patented all of them
02:05:08O11I'm JohannesCharman
02:05:38Genre9mp3But are they open to public? (sorry for not knowin a lot about that)
02:05:52preglowlooks like someone's already on it
02:06:00scorcheO11: done
02:06:08O11thanks! =)
02:06:12preglowGenre9mp3: depends what you mean, faad already can decode sbr, as far as i know, and we've got that in cvs
02:06:29preglowscorche: looks like a ton of the names in that page aren't registered anymore?
02:07:01preglowor do they just not have pages?
02:07:04Genre9mp3preglow: So only the parametric stereo stuff is Rockbox missing from aac atm?
02:07:08scorcheeither way
02:07:24scorchebut that is more of a Bagder/Zagor thing
02:07:42preglowGenre9mp3: looks like ps is there as well
02:07:44markunpreglow: what's the difference between "Parametric Stereo" and joint-stereo?
02:07:54preglowmarkun: joint stereo still encodes two channels
02:08:26O11err.. how do you edit?
02:08:36scorcheO11: the "edit" link
02:08:47Genre9mp3preglow: Then why can't play aacplus? It just isn't realtime?
02:09:02preglowGenre9mp3: way, way too heavy
02:09:09preglowGenre9mp3: right now we can barely decode aac-lc realtime
02:09:34*O11 sees it hiding away at the bottom..

04:45:11Soap_OutOfTowndimatrod: I don't have a h10, but is this question about rockbox or the H10 hardware?
04:45:31dimatrodjust got it on and don't know how to set it on usb mode hehehe
04:46:02Burnhey i add my music using itunes and when i go into rockbox and play it all the music are in albums and all in code
04:46:20Soap_OutOfTownBurn: read the manual about TagCache
04:46:40Soap_OutOfTownitunes scrambles file names and uses its own database to display files by their tags.
04:47:35dimatrodso nobody here knows my issue?
04:47:37Soap_OutOfTownrockbox can not read this database directly, but has its own tag database, called tagcache. You need to enable it, build the database, reboot, and change your file view from filetree to tagcache, then you can use the same files itunes does.

04:53:52Burnalso i got another question: what are the differences between daily builds, cvs builds and releases? i dont get what they all are for
04:54:28Soap_OutOfTownthere are no releases for the ipod
04:54:40dimatrodcvs is the latest build
04:54:43Soap_OutOfTowndaily builds qet built automaticly every day.
04:54:51dimatrodlike it has the latest comisions to the build
04:54:55dimatrodit may contain more bugs
04:55:09Soap_OutOfTowncvs builds get built multiple times a day - everytime someone commits a change - no matter how little or big.
04:55:10dimatroddailies are just more stable, though don't have the day's newest features
04:55:24dimatrodhehe you're reading it twice here
04:55:28dimatrodbut he got it more right
04:55:30Soap_OutOfTownthere is no reason a daily would be more stable.
04:55:52Soap_OutOfTownthey are nothing more than a CVS build at the end of the day.
04:58:23Burnok so they're both quite the same right?

05:04:47dimatrodwait until it has finished updating, turn the player off, then back on, it'll commit the TagCache database, and you've got beautiful ipod-like interface for music!!!
05:05:07Burnman.. thanks!
05:05:50dimatrodno prob
05:06:42dimatrodyou might also want to set Directory Cache on
05:06:51dimatrodso loading folders won't take ages

07:27:37godzirraSo out of curiousity, can you use rockbox -and- itunes with an ipod?
07:27:49godzirrathere's a couple features I like in itunes (Mostly all about playlist support)
07:28:36JdGordonyou know orkcbox's playlist features are much better than itunes right?
07:28:39JdGordonbut, yes, you cn
07:29:28scorchewhat features exactly?
07:29:40godzirraoh heh
07:29:46godzirrascorche: Mostly the dynamic playlists.
07:29:53godzirra"Generate a playlist with 500 songs that I've never rated" etc.
07:30:08godzirraand it automagically updates that playlist next time you sync if you rate your songs on the ipod.

07:34:53Burnhey can somebody tell me how do i get my CVS build onto my ipod? jus copy and paste?
07:35:53godzirraJdGordon: So can rockbox do that? And how? And why is rockbox's playlist features much better?
07:36:00godzirraNot arguing that it isn't, I'm just not clueful.
07:36:10godzirraI've always used rockbox on my H-120 but never r eally played around with the playlist functions.
07:36:39JdGordonwell.. no, i dont tihnk rockbox can do that... but thats not something i would rate very highly as a good playlist function :p
07:36:44Burnits got more functions for searching your songs if you have a big archive

07:37:56godzirraI've wanted to play with tag cache but for some reason it didnt work well on my iriver.
07:38:37JdGordonanyway, to actually answer your first q. if u put your music on using itunes, and use tagcache then yes u can use both
07:38:56 Quit Burn ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
07:39:35godzirraSo I flash my ipod. Then put on all the music using itunes... then use tagcache....
07:39:49godzirraBut then I can't drag and drop my music, right? Because it will be in the weird itunes naming convention?
07:40:47godzirraNo way to get the music over there via drag and drop and then do something that itunes will recognize?
07:41:05godzirraI know foopod in foobar 2000 had something, but apparently it stopped working with a newer version of... something. Rockbox, itunes, not sure which
07:41:08JdGordonmaybe another program can be used to make the db
07:41:35hcsI have a little program that generates a tagcache db from iTunesDB, sort of the opposite of what you want...

08:10:47amiconnjhMikeS: Spinup time can't be a fixed definition. It depends on a lot of factors
08:12:26mordovooo I saw the new iRiver s10 tody. looks realy neat and sexy :) will you guys port rockbox to it ? I might have to buy one
08:12:36amiconnYou can just use an average value estimated from previous spinups and add some safety margin, and use a worst-case time if there are no previous spinups available for estimation
08:13:17amiconnThe hwcodec playback code does that (unlike the swcodec playback code btw, which still uses a silly logic!)
08:14:27amiconnjhMikeS: There can _never_ be a guarantee that you can write in time (on HDD based targets), even if you would keep the drive spinning
08:16:51amiconnhcs: Profiling should work on ipods, but the script for processing the log data doesn't work for arm afaik. Probably because of the sectioned compilation we're doing for arm targets.
08:16:54mordovdentify the components
08:16:55mordovUsing your scans, contact your electronic savvy friends and use search engines to track down what every chip on the PCB is. I might be one of the savvages ;) so I don't thinl the rest aply to me :)
08:17:13hcsamiconn: couldn't fit it in ram with profiling data anyway
08:17:15jhMikeSamiconn: approximate is good though...I figure 2-3 seconds is safe?
08:17:36amiconnNot on iriver and x5.
08:17:55jhMikeSIt takes a couple to wind up on x5
08:17:55amiconnThese 1.8" disks have really long spinup times for some reason
08:18:00JdGordonhey guys, i've got a problem.... for some reason the menu recodig patch keeps the cpu boosted and the codec buffer doesnt get anywhere near full... I have commented out all my cpu intensive code (which doesnt touch the boost) and i doesnt fix anything. can anyone suggest how to try figuring out whats causing it?
08:18:18amiconnThe spinup times measurements are shown in the debug menu
08:18:19jhMikeSI need to compensate for it somewhat esp. at high datarates
08:18:54amiconnSlightly more than 3s afair

08:21:15jhMikeSSo you're saying that a particular player...even x5 to x5 is going to vary so much I can't even have a good rule of thumb for it?
08:21:37amiconnThe device can be shaking, effectively preventing the harddisk from doing any access - for minutes...
08:21:40 Join TCK [0] (
08:22:07Bagderand the same device can have different hd models that vary
08:22:38jhMikeSamiconn: we'll I'm not talking about that sort of thing but if you're just leaving in on the table and recording something, not jogging.
08:22:57amiconnYou can use a rule of thumb if you add enough safety margin - but you can never be 100% sure the disk will be ready in time
08:23:22amiconnFor recording I would probably use 10 seconds or more on swcodec targets with enough ram
08:23:39jhMikeSIt will be closer to ready...if you're beating on it that much then flush will fail anyway.
08:24:08jhMikeSYou're saying 10 seconds for it sitting on the table? I know my x5 is about 3 just sitting there (60gb)
08:24:46amiconnThe measured spinup time is a bit above 3 seconds, that's correct
08:25:15jhMikeSTo just power up the drive use ide_power_enable and that will start it?
08:25:31amiconnThat's the value I observbed on all my 1.8" targets (H140, H340 and X5 20GB)

08:27:20jhMikeSTo spin it in advance of writing.
08:27:40amiconnJust start you flush operation the appropriate number of seconds before you actually run out of buffer
08:28:21amiconnYou cannot just tell the ata code to spin up the disk without accessing it, and it wouldn't make sense to implement that
08:28:22jhMikeSI though about that but don't know really if I want to

11:08:47LinusNeach screen and menu contains a loop
11:08:51JdGordon_something_ is causing the main thread to stay active and starve the codec thread, and i have no idea what, or even wehere to start looking :'(
11:09:10LinusNJdGordon: are you sure it's the main thread?
11:09:31JdGordonno, but thats the thread that stays with the * in the stacks debug screen
11:09:58LinusNmaybe a button_get_w_tmo() that has a too short timeout?
11:10:37LinusNdoes the ui hang?
11:11:02LinusNJdGordon: what does the * mean?
11:11:26JdGordonI havnt added any button loops, and no, the ui feels fine, but the codec buffers stay very low
11:11:36JdGordondoesnt the * mean that thread is running?
11:11:54LinusNwell, when the stacks are displayed, the main thread is always running
11:12:25LinusNsince it is the main thread that does the drawing
11:12:27JdGordonyes, I know, but the * does move between threads on that screen
11:12:48JdGordonwell.. it usually does, but with the oatched build it doesnt, unless playback has stopped
11:13:21LinusNcoule it be the scroll thread?
11:13:26LinusNcould even
11:14:42JdGordoni dont think so, there is no scrolling on the screen and the debug screen says scroll is sleeping
11:16:55amiconnThe * means ready or running iirc
11:17:13amiconnmain is always running when displaying the list, of course
11:18:01LinusNJdGordon: iirc, there is a short-latency mode in the dsp code, so the user can hear the eq changes in the eq screen

13:20:33pondlifeThat's why I called you in
13:20:48linuxstbbarrywardell: At least one problem is removing #define IPOD_ARCH from the config files - you should restore that.
13:23:06***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
13:25:18barrywardellyup, that should fix the bootloader builds
13:26:31bluebrotherbarrywardell, you introduced firmware/target/arm/ipod/3g/backlight-3g.c but also firmware/target/arm/ipod/backlight-4g_color.c. Shouldn't be those in the same folder? Looks weird to me

13:26:53barrywardell3g is specific to the 3g ipod
13:27:09linuxstbbacklight-3g is for one target, backlight-4g-color is for both the 4g (greyscale) and the Color/Photo
13:27:11barrywardellbacklight-4g_color.c applies to two ipod models - 4g and color
13:27:19bluebrotherah. ok.
13:28:00linuxstbThere will hopefully be more 3g-specific code in the future as well, which should go in a 3g/ directory.
13:28:24barrywardellthere is a lot of common code between other ipods, but the 3g is quite different
13:29:17bluebrotherI was a bit puzzled as the type is also in the filename
13:30:09markunbarrywardell: the move to target_tree will also help my wmcodec generalisation, so thanks
13:30:20barrywardellgreat :)
13:30:37linuxstbbluebrother: All the target-tree code does that - e.g. iaudio/x5/power-x5.c
13:32:42linuxstbbarrywardell: firmware/SOURCES still has drivers/pcf50605.c surrounded by #ifdef IPOD_ARCH...
13:32:57*bluebrother hopes to get to know the code better in the next weeks (more free time!)
13:33:12barrywardelli just added IPOD_ARCH back in to all the ipod config files

16:13:36linuxstbIn my case, I committed a change to a file, and then the build servers didn't include that change in their builds. Checking the files in ~rbclient/ on my build server, the file I changed was still at the previous revision.
16:14:03linuxstbBut the changelog on the website included the change I had committed.
16:14:13preglowwhat, you're trying to say the build system has bugs? :]
16:14:25linuxstbIt's as if the wrong timestamp was passed to the build servers.
16:14:31LinusNlinuxstb: i changed the script 10:26 that day
16:14:38LinusNthen i restarted the build by hand
16:15:25LinusNso it is likely that your commit wasn't handled correctly
16:15:52linuxstbIn fact, my commit was earlier than that - 20:26 according to since25.shtml. I just discussed it in IRC at around 22:00.
16:16:35LinusNalso, it is possible that a multi-file commit may be built halfway, if the build is started after the first file has been committed
16:17:15LinusNlinuxstb: in my world 10:26 is a lot earlier than 20:26
16:18:11linuxstbI'm not arguing with that.
16:18:16Bagderthe "not catch all changes" problem is rather a cvs-related one
16:18:31linuxstbIn my case it was a single file.
16:19:37LinusNlinuxstb: if the file was unchanged on your build server, how could the master build script be at fault?
16:20:03linuxstbBecause my build server wasn't told to update it - it wasn't the revision it was meant to be building.
16:20:20linuxstbOther people with build servers checked and they had the same problem.
16:20:22Bagderit was told to update
16:20:27Bagderit just failed to do it
16:20:29Bagderfor some reason
16:20:36linuxstbIt's not given a time?
16:20:41Bagderit is
16:20:44Bagderall servers get the same
16:22:29LinusNthat's another reason to go svn - atomic commits
16:22:40barrywardelli'm having trouble tracking down that last problem. could it be a problem with the build system?
16:23:21preglowBagder: are there any scripts that will be somewhat hard fix when making a transition to svn?
16:23:34LinusNbarrywardell: what problem?
16:23:39barrywardellit's saying *_CONTRAST_SETTING isn't defined

16:23:56barrywardellbut looking in config-ipod4g.h for example it's right there
16:24:01preglowBagder: scripts are mostly perl, yes?

16:24:21barrywardelli don't see why it's building for some targets but not the two ipod sims

20:41:55obowould a raw apple firmware work? If it was extracted from an updater?
20:43:16linuxstb_The problem could be that the firmware in flash is expecting a disk formatted with 2048-byte sectors - so it would read a firmware partition image based on 512-byte sectors.

21:54:54godzirrabut I dont see how that can possibly work.
21:55:49Paul_The_NerdIt can work pretty easily
21:56:03godzirraplease do share paul.. i've been trying to get it to work all morning
21:56:28linuxstb_Paul_The_Nerd: godzirra appears to have an old 5g with 2048-byte sectors...
21:56:32Paul_The_NerdThe 5Gs with 1.2 have the same installation process as always, don't they? The only difference is the missing sysinfo, which is unnecessary to the installation process.
21:56:41godzirraipodpatcher doesnt detect my ipod.
21:56:52Paul_The_NerdIf they're 2048 byte sectors, it's a 5.5G then, isn't it?
21:56:56godzirraand I've tried multiple times in linux with ipod_fw
21:57:06godzirraPaul_The_Nerd: no. 5.5G also has 2048 byte sectors
21:57:11godzirrabut so does 5g with the 1.2 firmware
21:57:30linuxstb_Paul_The_Nerd: Apple have a list of serial numbers which they say are "Late 2006" 5gs. gidzirra's ipod doesn't match.
21:57:32Paul_The_NerdSo when you upgrade to 1.2, it changes the sector size?
21:57:46godzirramine came with 1.2
21:57:48godzirraI think...
21:57:54godzirraitunes may have upgraded it.
