00:24:22yipeI have been having SUCH a tough time with my ipod lately
00:24:30yipenow the battery doesn't seem to be charging right
00:24:37yipeI've had it like a month
00:24:50stripwax_what does "charging right" mean to you?
00:25:31yipewhen I plug the ipod in, the battery should charge, if I leave it plugged in all night, it should be fully charged the next morning, giving it the power to play music for at least a couple hours
00:26:52yipemy expectations of the battery and charging are not being met
00:27:01stripwax_Rockbox doesn't implement the USB charging parameters fully meaning it will charge only very slowly when charging over USB when running rockbox. So for now you can either charge from a 12v wall adapter, or boot to the apple firmware or disk mode and charge over usb.
00:27:28yipethat makes a big difference
00:27:41stripwax_At least until someone figures out how to reverse engineer the usb charge current for the (undocumented) chipset
00:28:14stripwax_out of interest, what are your "expectations" for rockbox? ;-)
00:28:49 Join courtc [0] (
00:28:57yipeI realise rockbox isn't perfect, but I wanted to bypass the annoying apple DRM, I didn't want to use ID3 tags, I wanted to play .ogg and .flac
00:29:30yipeI can handle occasional freeze-ups, or crashes, that doesn't bother me
00:29:58yipebut when my battery dies at night, and I plug it in, and the next morning the battery is STILL so dead it can't even boot the ipod, that's a problem
00:30:04yipebut now I know about the USB thing
00:30:16stripwax_ok. cos battery life (in particular on ipod) is currently not very long under rockbox (at least compared to apple os)
00:30:29yipeI've noticed
00:30:37stripwax_(but this can only get better as more work is carried out)
00:30:46yipeand read about it in the FAQ
00:31:22yipeis the rockbox.ipod the only file I need to change to update to the newest daily build?
00:32:03stripwax_you download the .zip file, and you unzip it (all of it)
00:32:19stripwax_the zip file contains probably a couple hundred files..
00:32:29 Join NsN [0] (
00:32:30yipewill the themes and wps's I put on there stay, or will I have to reload them?
00:32:38stripwax_they'll stay, don't worry
00:33:11 Quit ender` (" Lisp hackers have to be bound (to-do 'it) ...")
00:33:25stripwax_the daily builds include rockbox.ipod (the main operating system) and the .rockbox folder which contains all the plugins (which must match the version of rockbox.ipod).
00:33:43peturand the codecs of course
00:34:16stripwax_right. in my mind codecs are still plugins ;-)
00:34:30peturin a way yes ;)
00:36:02 Part Paul_the_Nerd
00:36:15stripwax_anyone else think the key bindings for minesweeper on ipod are basically awful? wheel for up/down, select+down to select, up to quit ... ??
00:37:06courtcWhat would you suggest?
00:38:35stripwax_left/right for left/right for starters. select to flag, long select to clear/mine, hold to quit
00:39:15 Join besonen_mobile [0] (
00:39:25courtcSee, that sounds worse to me.
00:39:26stripwax_or maybe just select to clear/mine, long select to flag, but clear/mine old happens when you release the button.
00:39:34stripwax_Hm, why is that worse?
00:39:53courtcWhy not use the wheel?
00:40:02stripwax_wheel for up/down seems completely unnatural to me (but then I play Jewels a lot, and wheel is left/right)
00:40:25stripwax_when I said left/right for left/right I meant up/down for up/down of course .. left/right work fine currently
00:40:27courtcYea, wheel => left/right seems more appropriate.
00:41:22stripwax_which leaves up/down for up/down. and left and right are then unused? also left and right work fine in jewels as left and right ..
00:41:40courtcwheel for left/right with wrap seems easiest. also with some heuristics to make sure that you can only select active mine spots.
00:42:12courtcleft/right/down are for music playing ;)
00:42:19courtcmenu is quit.
00:42:50stripwax_Not while playing any games I know of .. select+menu is often quit but menu on its own is pretty uncommon.
00:43:08stripwax_especially for any games where up/down/left/right directional controls are natural!
00:43:24stripwax_maybe it's just me.
00:43:40courtcWell, I come from ipodlinux, and personally have never used rockbox.
00:43:53stripwax_Really? You should try it sometime!
00:44:19courtcNot very interested in the actual os, however the code interests me :)
00:44:56stripwax_I'd love to have spare time to get some secrets out of the apple os..
00:46:26courtcYes, it does take a lot of spare time.. and patience...
00:47:02stripwax_Ooh.. anyone happen to know if the fact that the ipod (5g) display looks kinda "interlacy" is just a feature of the ipod or if there is some hardware setting that we aren't using properly yet?
00:47:08stripwax_(i've not used retailos)
00:47:18stripwax_looking 'interlacy' in rockbox that is...
00:50:19stripwax_courtc - actually does ipodlinux look that way?
00:50:46 Quit lodesi ("leaving")
00:50:56courtcIt's probably the fact that you aren't using the BCM.
00:51:22courtcIt's probably the same for ipodlinux, but I don't own an ipod video.
00:51:43courtcWe use the same lcd functions though.
00:53:23jhMikeSpetur: I think I'm going to do what you suggested and release changes using master mode for recording as before. The issues are proving thorny and can be worked out separately.
00:53:24stripwax_courtc - I don't really know - I sortof thought we were using the BCM but only in the sense that we're shipping the entire framebuffer to the BCM which is just driving the lcd. Maybe i'll try retailos and see how that happens to look.
00:57:17peturjhMikeS: I think it's the best way to go. Don't try to change too much in one go
00:57:38peturI'll try to test as much as I can

01:13:28l0deHello sirs, I am looking to find out if any progress has been made on 5.5g 80gb ipods.
01:13:53scorchethen go check the thread ;)
01:14:45l0deWhich thread?
01:15:23scorchethe 5.5g thread in the forums

01:16:24l0denow searching through the site to try and find that thread
01:17:03scorcheif you have read the posting guidelines and the stickies at the beginning of each thread. you wouldnt have to search
01:17:12yipewhen I plug in the ipod, what does this weird battery with a lightning bolt symbol mean? That it's charging the battery? That the battery is dead (it is)? What?

01:25:55l0demidkay- yeah, scanning over it now.
01:26:04yipevideo, 30gb
01:26:38l0demidkay- which one do you have, the 30 or the 80?
01:26:56linuxstbyipe: Is your battery charged? Maybe your USB port isn't supplying power?
01:27:02midkayi have a 5G 60gb.
01:27:09yipeno, it's not charged
01:27:22linuxstbThat would explain the disconnects I guess.
01:27:23yipethat's my main problem, WHY isn't it charging
01:27:54linuxstbAre you connecting directly to your PC, or via a hub?
01:28:24linuxstbYou could try a different port, maybe they don't all provide power.
01:28:25l0deIs it a laptop or a standard pc?

01:28:42l0deHow old is it?
01:28:50yipeehh, 3 years?
01:28:52yipemaybe 4
01:30:08l0deI'm assuming you don't have another machine to test on?
01:31:45linuxstbyipe: How have you been charging it in the past?
01:32:01yipethe only way available to me, with the USB cable
01:32:22l0deI hate that the new ipods just come with that cable.
01:32:36l0deHow much does the wall adaptor thing cost?
01:33:34yipeno clue, but I know I can't afford it, I'm a TA
01:35:02l0deHere's a tip on getting one for free, call around to hotels and ask if they have one in their lost and found
01:35:15l0deI used to work at a hotel and we had about three dozen that no one ever came and got.
01:35:18scorchethat is stealing
01:35:22l0deSame with phone chargers.
01:35:23yipeI should try that
01:35:31*yipe is a religion student
01:35:40yipeand I'm totally willing to try that :P
01:35:48l0deScorche- the items are never reclaimed. They are eventually hucked out.
01:35:59scorchethat doesnt matter
01:36:05scorcheit is claiming something that isnt yours to claim
01:36:07l0deBecause most people just buy a new one rather than going to the cost of having one shipped to them.
01:36:28yipehey, I'm a religion student, and I say it's okay
01:36:40l0deScorche, if we follow your logic, the item is never used, and eventually discarded. By my logic, someone uses the item, and is happier.
01:36:44l0deWhich one is morally right?
01:36:46yipetaking what would be thrown out has a long and noble tradition behind it
01:36:56*petur wonders what religion that could be :p
01:37:01yipejust ask the two-by-twos

01:53:54pagefaultit just has to be very fast memory wherever I put it
01:54:02preglowpagefault: sounds like iram would be nice sample storage space, then
01:54:21Mikachuaren't you already using the iram for the codec program code?
01:54:26Mikachuor was that just a part?
01:54:35Mikachunever mind me, i've been away for too long
01:54:36yipetomorrow I'm going to buy a new ipod USB cable....
01:54:41pagefaultno I am not using iram for program code
01:54:42preglowmy guess is using it for samples will be wiser
01:54:44Mikachuyipe: don't you have a friend with one?
01:54:45yipeI hope that solves my problems
01:55:01yipeat least none that live out here in Estelline
01:55:13pagefaultit's a challange but I think I can do it
01:55:32pagefaultif I can get it running well on my poor H10
01:55:37pagefaultthen it should run fine on anything else
01:56:32linuxstbIf it's almost realtime without IRAM, then it should be fine once you start using it.
01:56:36yipeI wish I had bought another brand mp3 player :(

02:03:25pagefaulteven though that has legal implications
02:03:29yipewhat about my verbosity?
02:03:44Mikachui decremented it by 1
02:03:50linuxstbpagefault: Is any source available to play audible?
02:04:07pagefaultlinuxstb, not that I am aware of, but I think the format is documented
02:04:19*yipe /exec yipe -v
02:04:22preglowthen there's the drm
02:04:51pagefaultit sucks to not be able to listen to a book you legally purchased
02:04:56linuxstbSo does audible have a monopoly on audio books?
02:05:17Mikachuthat's some great incentive, if you steal it you can use it anywhere, if you buy it you can't
02:05:51pagefaultpretty much they do if you want them at an affordable price
02:05:58pagefaultcd's are expensive at amazon
02:06:06pagefaultand lots of things you can only find there
02:06:21Mikachuso can't you just recompress it?
02:06:38pagefaultthats the current method
02:06:44pagefaultyou use the directshow filter to transcode
02:06:53pagefaultbut you lose the chapter markers
02:07:29pagefaultor you burn to cdrw and rip it

02:09:53pagefaultthey wouldn't give me a refund at first because they claimed I could have copied it

02:32:41 Nick S0ap is now known as Soap (n=Soap@unaffiliated/s0ap)
02:33:06TrueJournalsHate to say this, but since you used an unofficial installer... you probably won't get any help here
02:33:18TrueJournalsUnless someone here happens to have used the same one as you...
02:33:21Daemonicwell its easier then doing it via all the bin files...
02:33:49TrueJournalslol... true... but you'll probably have to ask over at ipodwizard
02:33:54Soapthat's like saying driving to your mailbox at the end of the drive is easier than walking.
02:33:58Soapit's true, but missing the point.
02:34:48aliaskFor ipl problems, you'll have to ask them, but for the themes issue, what is actually happening?
02:34:51Soapthe instructions, esp. for windows, are step-by-step. All you need to do is cut and paste, replacing N with the number you found out in the first step.
02:34:53Daemonicok well no one else here used the unofficial installer?
02:35:11aliaskI don't think the themes issue has anything to do with the installer.
02:35:23Daemonicwell in windows my ipod kept messing up cuz of some sysinfo i tried here at work with un official isntaller and it worked.
02:35:48TrueJournalsCan you link to the installer you used? I don't have an iPod, but maybe I could look at it a bit and help you out...
02:36:21linuxstbDaemonic: AFAIK, the ipodwizard installer just installs the ipodlinux bootloader, not ipodlinux itself. It's just used to give you a boot menu to choose between Rockbox and the Apple firmware.

02:42:28Daemonici clicked a new theme but after it "loads" it gores back to what it was
02:43:06TrueJournalsI have a quick question... if I change the splashscreen that shows up to be full screen (the screen that shows up after debug info when booting), do I need to rebuild just the actual firmware, or also the bootloader?
02:44:06aliaskTrueJournals: Just the firmware
02:44:19TrueJournalsok, thanks
02:44:21aliaskDaemonic: Just change the WPS, not the theme.
02:46:12Daemonici did

02:48:58Daemonicwell there are 3...i think the one i changed to was like....began with a B
02:50:21aliaskOk, for simplicity, try changing to iCatcher
02:52:35Daemonici tried and that stays the samre
02:52:39aliaskIf that doesn't work, check that the files are all on the player. You should have both a file called iCatcher.wps, and a folder called iCatcher in /.rockbox/wps

03:52:37DeefThought some people here would have it
03:53:33godzirrajust ask
03:53:36DeefWell my question is, does the USBOTG only let you plug a camera in it and transfer?
03:53:52DeefOr does it actually work as a file manager to any USB stick?
03:53:54godzirrathats pretty much teh definition of USB OTG I thought.
03:54:00godzirrahmm, not sure of that.
03:54:21DeefTrying to decide between a h340 and an iPod
03:54:31godzirrano contest
03:54:39PaulJamrockbox doen't support usb on the go. for that you have to boot the iriver firmware
03:54:41godzirraI wish I could find a place to buy an h340 that isnt ebay.
03:54:54DeefYeah, I'm okay with that Pauljam

03:55:17godzirraI didnt know -any- stores had them anymore
03:55:27DeefThat was about the 7th I tried
03:55:35PaulJamand you should check the misticriver forum to see if your camera/usb-stick is supported
03:55:41DeefI tried everything on the list for iRiver Australia

03:56:09DeefI'm pretty sure the camera is, its Fujifilm, seen it listed I think
03:56:29DeefI more want to know if it can handle data on it, or just pull images out
03:58:03PaulJamyou can't directly play or view files from an external device. you need to copy them to the player first
04:00:13PaulJambut the iriver firmware is a little restricted concerning copying via usbotg, for example you can't select multiple files to copy at once.

04:08:10PaulJami'm not sure, but propably i would choose the h340
04:09:20DeefAlso been wondering about that camera to iPod device they've got
04:09:27aliaskIt depends on what you want. The H340 is a much better player, but it's plain fat.
04:09:39DeefYeah, looks aren't a concern
04:09:59aliaskMine wore a hole in my pants because the corner kept rubbing it.
04:10:08Soapbetter in what way?
04:10:09aliaskSo it isn't purely aesthetic.
04:10:27aliaskLine in, line out, usbotg
04:10:35Deefrecords and has radio

04:11:00DeefYou can plug two sets in?
04:11:17aliaskOn the H340, one from Line Out, and the other in the regular headphones slot.
04:11:30DeefThere's a regular slot as well
04:11:35DeefNever knew that lol
04:11:56aliaskAnd I also hate the scrollwheel.
04:12:10aliask(of iPods)
04:12:10DeefI like that thing
04:12:20DeefThe copying device for the iPod dumps the raw image on the iPod, no optimizing
04:12:36aliaskAnd that's the way it should do it.
04:12:38DeefSo I'm wondering how that makes it perform when viewing
04:13:04aliaskExif thumbnails could be read.
04:13:04DeefBut since the iPod is speedy because it mutilates your images, I wonder how it handles full sized stuff
04:14:02Soapwhy do you say that?
04:14:44DeefThe iPod views images without delay, but that's because iTunes transcodes for its small screen
04:14:47Deef.. from what I've read
04:15:11DeefYou put photos on it via iTunes, which actually puts a dumbed down copy, not the original data
04:15:32DeefAllowing it to view them fast like it does
04:15:36PaulJami don't think the ipod can show photos that weren't transferred via itunes (with apple fimware)
04:15:36aliaskIt could just encode a thumnail into the EXIF data
04:16:16DeefApparently the camera to iPod device lets you view them
04:16:32Deef(from Cnet or IGN)
04:17:08DeefIt said you need iTunes to take them OFF the iPod, at which point it copies new, dumbed down versions back to the iPod
04:17:32DeefSo I wonder how it copes viewing 2M images in the meantime
04:18:59DeefIf the h340's USBOTG isn't hugely more functional than the camera-to-pod device, I might swing towards the iPod
04:19:36DeefCan you have both firmware's on the iRiver at once? ie, can you select which you want to boot into?
04:19:46DeefOr does switching require a PC
04:20:05PaulJamrockbox is dualboot on h300
04:20:07 Nick hcs is now known as zhcs (n=agashlin@nat01-silvers-ext.Rutgers.EDU)
04:20:19PaulJam(on ipod too)
04:21:24DeefIs there such thing as a 60G iPod 5G? Or only 30G?
04:23:21PaulJam5gen ipos exist as 30 and 60 GB and the 5.5gen ipods have 80 and 30 GB afaik (but 5.5 gen ipods currently don't work with rockbox)
04:24:25Deefok thanks
04:24:35DeefOnly 30G 5G on the site I think
04:24:47DeefBut a 60G would probably be easier to find than a h340
04:35:25didjdeef: just tried my h340 then, worked with mem stick, but didnt work with Sony DSC-P32 cam
04:35:44DeefThanks for checking that
04:36:20didji think it needs to support mass storage device thingo
04:36:26DeefDoes the Sony cam have a generic "I'm-a-USB-storage-device" mode?
04:36:34didjfrom memory i think i needed drivers to use on PC
04:36:50didjplugged in a usb<->SD adapter card, that worked fine
04:37:17Deefas in, you read from SD via the adapter?
04:38:10Deefand one more question, does the h340 let you write to the USB device also, or just read?
04:38:49didjya, its got a pretty basic browser
04:38:54didjlike a two tabbed window
04:38:58didjyou can copy/paste between em
04:39:21DeefSo it IS a basic file manager for USB storage devices
04:39:36didjya, pretty basic tho
04:39:50DeefGood enough heh
04:39:54didj"copy", "Paste", "del", "info"
04:39:58didjis the only options
04:40:12DeefI was just worried that it was more like "Take images from camera" and "Exit"
04:40:14didjinfo basically shows the name + "Write Date" (last modified i guess)
04:40:48DeefThe camera I use works as a USB storage device
04:41:09DeefI can put pics from windows on it as data and view them on the camera (which I think is nifty)
04:41:14didjid think it *should* work
04:41:30DeefI'm happy with that shaky confidence
04:42:13didjbut dunno what your chances of finding one would be
04:42:19DeefYeah >_<

05:40:52didj(you use the same cable + AC adapter)
05:41:17DanJCCan you not charge with the AC adapter without the dock?
05:41:27didjits just a convenience thing
05:41:58DanJCWhat's the convenient bit...
05:42:12DanJCIf you can still just charge it and connect it without the dock
05:42:15didjyou can just throw it into the dock and it charges + connects to usb
05:42:24godzirrasome people leave the dock all plugged up
05:42:28didjyea, that ;P
05:42:29godzirraand just toss in their iriver when they get home
05:42:42DanJCRight, ok, fair enough I guess
05:42:59DanJCNo use for me travelling though
05:44:19didjit *can* charge from usb
05:44:23didjbut its *much* quicker from AC
05:44:35DanJCConfused with your answer before...
05:44:47DanJCCan it charge via AC without the dock
05:45:11DanJCI'll be backpacking
05:45:31DanJCSo the dock will take up unnecessary space
05:45:37didjpretty much

06:29:21tidavhi everyone
06:29:45tidavi'm new to linux, can anyone tell me how to "add path to the cross-compiler"?
06:30:11tidavi've just used /tools/
06:30:24DeefI can't
06:30:37tidavbut when i try to compile, it says that it can't find "arm-elf-gcc"
06:30:47didjtidav: if you know where it is you append to $PATH
06:31:25tidavcould you tell me what is the command line
06:31:31didjfor cygwin atleast, its /opt/m68k/bin n /opt/arm/bin
06:31:38tidavto append it to $PATH?
06:32:03didjif your using bash, "export PATH=/path/to/ccs:$PATH"
06:32:05didjshould do it
06:32:58*Quazgaa exposes his genitals to didj
06:33:31tidavi'll try to find where it is then
06:33:33didjbe trueful, am i your first?
06:33:46tidavthanks didj
06:34:29didjtidav: you could try 'find / -name arm-elf-gcc'
06:34:35didjassuming it is installed :p
06:36:14tidavi guess i've just found it :D
06:37:09*Quazgaa exposes didj's genitals to tidav
06:37:13didjso just add '/usr/local/arm-elf/bin' to PATH

06:40:00didjmm you dont need the 2nd one
06:40:12didjbut the first one should of worked, what does 'echo $PATH' give you
06:40:47didjim guessing your not using bash
06:41:45tidavactually i typed all these commands in "gnome terminal"
06:42:20didjas long as its all in the same (instance) terminal it should be fine
06:42:38didjdoes the 'setenv' command spew crap at you ?
06:43:02tidavbash: setenv: command not found
06:43:12tidavi get this when i try 'setenv'

06:47:29tidavthen i typed
06:47:41tidavexport PATH=/usr/local/arm-elf/bin/:$PATH
06:47:46didjthis is all in the same window yea?
06:48:23tidavi type one then immediately the second command
06:48:49didjn 'echo $PATH' doesnt show the arm-elf dir in it ?
06:49:39tidavoh i tried again
06:49:45tidavit's fine

10:19:17pondlifeQuick question about the RB source structure...
10:19:54pondlifeTo fix a minor bug in the sim, I need access to iso_decode from the sim's io.c.
10:20:08pondlifeBut this currently needs a horrible include: #include "../include/rbunicode.h"
10:20:45pondlifeShould I be updating something else to include that include directory? Or should I not be attempting to do this at all?
10:22:24LinusNwell, i think dirty hacks are more or less allowed in the sims
10:22:53daurnthats racist
10:22:59daurni mean, dirty ;)
10:23:06pondlifeWould you mind if I commit that then?
10:23:38pondlifeBasically, the utf8 conversion is assumed to have happened in the io layer. It doesn't with the sim though.
10:26:08LinusNas long as it works in both win32 and linux
10:26:29pondlifeHmm, can you (or anyone) test a linux build for me?
10:26:59pondlifeIf not, I'll put an #ifdef in ;-p

10:51:12Bagderpondlife: yes
10:51:36Nimdaei'm a java person, but lack the proper knowledge to do an implementation :(
10:52:28baobab68question re: the battery indicator on H300 series, if anyone has a second..?
10:52:40Nimdaei'll look into it though, it'd be fun to make java apps for rockbox
10:54:13*amiconn would rather like to stay away from java as far as possible
10:54:14baobab68i've been reading irc logs to see if this has been under discussion - currently the battery indicator seems to only get updated on each reboot, rather than being live?
10:54:21amiconnEven farther than MSVC++ or .net
10:54:35peturbaobab68: no it's live
10:54:57peturit just decreases very slowly ;)
10:55:00Nimdaeamiconn: why? java5 is rather nice ;)
10:55:37Bagderwell, we don't even have malloc
10:55:46Bagderimagine what java would require
10:56:13baobab68i'll admit i'm using a non-standard build (norbu's) but out of interest i ran a battery benchmark and the log file just kept recording 85% for six hours until the battery died...
10:56:23*petur wonders what's wrong with MSVC - starting with version 7 the compiler is actually quite good
10:58:46amiconnjava is slow, resource hungry, and it's oo
10:59:18Nimdaei find it to be quite fast, actually
10:59:37baobab68@ petur: so the CVS battery indicator is ok then? i might go back to CVS and save the headache
10:59:48BagderNimdae: I doubt you ever use it on this slow processors
11:00:05amiconnSo far I've seen no graphical java app that comes even near the speed of a native app
11:00:11Nimdaei dunno how fast the processor is on my phone
11:00:15didjanother thing is the lax memory management, garbage collection isnt good on memory constrained devices ;p
11:00:18amiconnThat's on recent PC hardware
11:00:24Bagderphones are usually several hundred mhz ARMs
11:00:50amiconnMy mobile phone runs java midp 1.0
11:01:04amiconnStarting opera mini takes half a minute or so
11:01:44Nimdaeamiconn: actually, i won't argue about the graphical processing since java implements it's own graphical system on top of the existing graphical system of the os, and java2 is extremely slow at that
11:02:07Nimdaebut eh, i just thought it was a decent idea ;)
11:02:48amiconnpetur: Nothing is wrong with MSVC, it's the '++' that makes me stay away
11:04:02Nimdaedoesn't look like it would be possible anyway because no one has jme or embedded java sources available
11:07:12markunNimdae: you can email the /k/ guys about it
11:10:09Nimdaeeh, i don't think i could make very good use of it though
11:10:37Nimdaeanyway, after 4 am, sleep time

12:28:01Paul_the_NerdFirstly, that wouldn't be a filetree at all.
12:28:15Paul_the_NerdSecondly, TagCache exists as a replacement view for the filetree view, so you still have to be able to get to it.

12:31:55Paul_the_Nerddeesh: You need to uninstall loader2 first.
12:32:10Paul_the_Nerdton: Haven't you been in here asking that several times lately?
12:33:20Paul_the_Nerddeesh: Have you tried clearing your settings yet though? You can try that before you try the more difficult process...
12:33:35deeshHow do I go about clearing these settings?
12:34:27Paul_the_Nerddeesh: Make sure the hold switch is on while Rockbox is booting. So, select it from the list, and immediately after choosing it, turn on the hold switch until Rockbox boots and says "Cleared"
12:36:05deeshDone. Reboot?
12:36:17Paul_the_NerdIt said cleared?
12:36:28Paul_the_NerdAnd it still booted into the menu?
12:37:06deeshIt booted into, " Calenders -Contacts - Notes - Photos - rockbox"
12:37:12Paul_the_NerdThat's the filetree.
12:37:21Paul_the_NerdCalenders, Contacts, etc, are all folders on a default iPod
12:37:33Paul_the_Nerdrockbox is the rockbox.ipod file you copied over.
12:37:45Paul_the_NerdThe .rockbox folder is hidden because you're not in "view all" mode by default.
12:38:02deeshAh :o
12:38:20 Quit SmilinBob (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
12:38:49deeshSo now that I have the filetree, what's the easiest way to get iTunes-imported songs into the rockbox menu?
12:42:15deeshBut I could also create a Music folder in the same directory as Calenders, Contacts, etc, drag-and-drop folders and such into it.. and it would be displayed in the filetree as different folders.
12:42:34Paul_the_Nerd Yes.
12:42:39Paul_the_NerdBut you asked about iTunes-imported songs.
12:43:20Paul_the_NerdiTunes hides the music on your iPod, and names the files strange things, so by far the easiest way to use those songs is by way of TagCache.
12:43:26toncan i pay u to put zvm rockbox
12:43:39Paul_the_Nerdton: No, you cannot.
12:43:45deeshCould I SharePod MP3's from my iPod to PC, then put them in that directory?
12:43:49Paul_the_Nerdton: Why not spend some time learning and do it yourself.
12:44:02tonwhere would i start
12:44:22Paul_the_Nerddeesh: Sure, but why do that? If you want them in filetree mode, don't use iTunes to sync, and just copy the music files over wherever you want.
12:44:26Bagderton: zen vision M?
12:45:07Bagderthen you'd benefit from investigating archopen and the current neuros development

13:08:09Paul_the_Nerddeesh: Rockbox can see them, but iTunes gives them gibberish filenames.
13:08:30Paul_the_Nerddeesh: What it does is finds all the files on your system, and organizes them in a menu like the iPod software does, showing them sorted by Artist, Album, etc.
13:08:53Paul_the_NerdReading all their tags and creating a database of them takes a little time, so Rockbox doesn't do this by default
13:09:17deeshI see.

14:18:13preglowframes are bad!
14:18:25*Paul_the_Nerd gathers the torches and pitchforks.
14:18:36amiconnI prefer frames over having the same code load over and over
14:18:49aliaskThey are certainly more efficient than other methods.
14:18:56amiconnThey also have the advantage that the menu stays visible when scrolling down a long page
14:18:59aliaskBoth for coding time and loading.
14:19:09Zagoraliask: yes, very efficient at eliminating bookmarks, urls etc
14:19:17amiconnZagor: huh?
14:19:33Zagoramiconn: you can only link to the top frame
14:20:19*aliask forgot about that
14:21:10amiconnZagor: You can always link to a sub-page, with some support on either side
14:21:36Bagderyou can have the menu "follow" along without frames
14:22:17amiconnBagder: Yes, but then the menu code is included with every page -> longer loading time
14:22:34Bagderyes, but working web pages
14:22:41Bagderframes are broken by design
14:22:41amiconnAnd without special css measures, the menu becomes inaccessible when scrolling down

14:25:03Zagoramiconn: the menu is 2700 bytes, and is the gzipped before transfer. exactly how many milliseconds do you think you gain by not transfering it?
14:25:52Zagoractually it's 2472 bytes
14:26:12amiconnIt's only gzipped if the client supports it. Then there are still modem & isdn users
14:26:31Zagoramiconn: name a popular browser that doesn't support compression?
14:27:46amiconnAnd the other point still holds (menu vanishing when scrolling down
14:28:14Paul_the_NerdWe could always just make the menu a floater.
14:28:17Zagoramiconn: you are living in 1995 :-)
14:28:23amiconnNo I don't
14:28:41Galoisdefinitely, floater menus are the way to go

14:37:45aliaskDoes IE7 have CCS2 support?
14:37:56ZagorI don't think there's much value in having the menu obnoxiously following the scrolling page. you know where the menu is, it doesn't have to be "in your face" all the time.

14:48:09amiconnnano-: If you want a dap that's still in production and fairly well supported by rockbox, I'd say go for the Iaudio X5
14:48:12dan_aWe're working on the Sansa, but the LCD has only been working a week
14:48:54Paul_the_Nerdnano-: Honestly, most people feel that the iRiver H100 or H300 series are some of the best Rockbox players if you want software codec support. The iAudio X5 is a newer one with very similar capabilities (thought I don't think we're beating stock battery life yet).
14:48:58nano-amiconn: yeah.. x5's are really nice, but a bit more expensive.
14:49:10linuxstbnano-: The only options for easily available DAPs are the ipods, and the iriver H10, but their support isn't as good as the X5.
14:49:19Paul_the_Nerdnano-: And of course the Archoses are wonderful if you don't mind that they only play MP3s, and are a bit clunky.

14:51:09amiconnHmm, and we don't support usbotg on any model with usbotg hardware yet
14:51:45Paul_the_Nerdnano-: Honestly, overall I personally would suggest the H100 series if you can find one on sale somewhere, but that could be because it was my first Rockbox'ed DAP. ;)
14:52:52amiconnImho all the rockbox supported daps have their pros and cons, there's no one beat-all-others model
14:52:56Slasherii would suggest H100 also. It should be the most stable and best working of software codec targets

14:59:25markunnano-: maybe you can port it to ipodlinux
15:00:04Bagder"It imports 1200 songs in 6 minutes on a P3 1.5GHz system."
15:00:18linuxstbAnd Rockbox is optimised for low memory usage and minimal disk spin-ups.
15:00:32amiconnlinuxstb: I have a few questions and suggestions regarding (1) the bitmap build system, (2) libmad
15:00:35Paul_the_NerdBagder: I think our TagCache can beat that. :-P
15:00:35nano-markun: yeah.. that's what I wanted to before I realised that glib didn't compile on ulibc (except for a really old version) and I didn't put any time investigating the problem. rockbox is nicer ;)
15:00:47BagderPaul_the_Nerd: I would certainly hope so...
15:00:58linuxstbamiconn: Ask away, but I'm not sure I'll be able to help with libmad.
15:01:12linuxstb(it's been a long time since I did anything with it).
15:02:26Bagderthe fun part is that the xmms2 page says 1200 songs in 6 minutes is "*very* fast"
15:02:48BagderSlasheri should like that ;-)
15:02:58Zagorwell what does "import" mean?
15:03:31BagderI assume that means populating the db with meta data from the songs
15:03:37linuxstbIt must mean physically copying the files to be that slow?
15:03:40nano-fetching all metadata from the files (including coverart) and loading the text to the medialib (sqlite) and storing the coverart to disk.
15:03:40Zagorbut yes, sounds a bit strange spending on average 3.3 seconds per song
15:04:07Bagderbut yeah, tagcache doesn't store cover art
15:04:50nano-but the "benchmark" is pretty inconclusive as the "songs" doesn't say format and doesn't say how much metadat in each file.
15:05:01BagderPaul_the_Nerd: check the history for 5521 for the reason for the re-open
15:05:10nano-So imho pretty silly to have on the front page without real information ;)
15:05:18Bagdernano-: indeed ;-)
15:05:38linuxstbnano-: Does it require setting up a database, or can I just do "xmms2 *.flac" in a directory?
15:06:09*amiconn thinks tagcache beats the 1200 songs in 6 minutes even on archos
15:06:45nano-linuxstb: Maybe this is a bit OT here. xmms2 add is the command though. (for adding to playlist, and xmms2 addpath to recursively add a path to the medialib, files added to playlist will be added to mlib)
15:07:33Paul_the_NerdBagder: It says it may be reopened, I've assumed that the problem has returned, but nobody's said anything to that end?
15:08:04BagderPaul_the_Nerd: the history includes "This bug is back with a vengeance. I can't even switch to ID3database view without a crash. I"
15:08:17Bagderthat is, the history tab

15:08:24nano-linuxstb: for more info ask on #xmms2 here at freenode.
15:08:25linuxstbnano-: You're right, it's off-topic, but I think there a lot of Linux users here who want a media player on the desktop that has all the features of Rockbox. But I'll just try it and stop asking you :)
15:08:37amiconnlinuxstb: I was trying to fix the multiple calls into the bitmap directory makefile problem. Do you know why the apps/plugins/Makefile specifies both the makefile in apps/plugins/bitmaps (with in turn calls the 4 sub-directory makefile) _and_ the 4 individual makefiles in apps/plugins/bitmaps/<sub-dir> ?
15:08:37preglowgood luck
15:08:41preglowmedia players on linux suck
15:08:46Paul_the_NerdBagder: Ah, yeah, I forgot about the History tab again. I'm not so great with flyspray. :)
15:09:16Zagorpreglow: nah, mpg321 is all you need :)
15:09:23BagderPaul_the_Nerd: I just didn't felt like entering the same info since it _is_ there, just not that easily accessible
15:09:57amiconnlinuxstb: Another problem is that if you replace some gfx for a plugin with new ones of different resoltion, and don't 'make clean' (or at least delete the appropriate libpluginbitmaps*.a and object files, the gfx are all messed up
15:10:31Paul_the_NerdBagder: Well, sorted now. Hopefully next time I'll remember to check the history first.
15:10:43amiconnI have an idea how this could be solved. The generated .c file must have the jabber after the first dot stripped the same way as the .h file
15:11:29linuxstbamiconn: That doesn't sound right. IMO, the main Makefile should just call the four sub-directory Makefiles. cvs annotate tells me that Bagder added those lines...
15:11:58nano-Anyway, thanks for the info about DAP's. Bye.
15:12:03 Part nano-
15:12:09amiconnOh? I thought it should be the other way round, i.e. the Makefile should only call the one in bitmaps
15:12:55amiconnlinuxstb: Regarding libmad I have 2 simple questions, as you imported it to rockbox. First, libmad is made by Underbit technologies, but README.rockbox says Unibit technologies? I guess that's just a typo...
15:13:19amiconnSecond, do you know if there's an official cvs or svn for libmad?
15:13:29linuxstbI would prefer to have all the dependencies in the main Makefile, rather than recursively calling other Makefiles.
15:13:58linuxstbamiconn: Yes, that would just be a typo in README.rockbox.
15:15:31linuxstbI don't know about CVS/SVN. There's a "mad" project but it doesn't look like it uses the Sourceforge CVS/SVN.

19:07:35random81I figured out how to add a really simple plugin and compile it.
19:07:40 Part fairramone
19:07:46random81But the edit-compile-run loop takes too long using "make && make clean && make install"
19:07:49 Join fairramone [0] (
19:07:54random81Any hints to speed it up , so I can just compile the plugin ?
19:07:57preglowrandom81: why do you make clean?
19:08:01preglowrandom81: just do make
19:08:08preglowrandom81: and only what you've changed will be recompiled
19:08:10Mikachuand why do you run make clean _after_ make???
19:08:26random81well, i havent coded c in ages
19:08:47Mikachudoing make clean before make will give you a 100% speed increase, not running it at all probably 5000%
19:09:22peturrunning make clean after make gives you no binaries :)
19:09:34Mikachumake install will probably trigger a recompile
19:09:54random81thanks, i'll try

19:19:04peturI want to edit under windows
19:19:21peturand the vmware services stay in memory all the time
19:19:52peturwhich is Bad Design (tm) in my opinion
19:20:03amiconnpetur: ??
19:20:34peturI tried vmware at work and it loads 2 or 3 services that hjust stay there and consume memory
19:20:49amiconnVMware can be configured to swap the same way as any other application. At least vmware workstation >= 5.0 and the vmware player do
19:21:06peturso maybe I should try again?
19:21:12amiconnThe services are neglectible imho, the VM(s) consume more
19:21:43markuncould anyone with a DAP with a Wolfson codec please try the latest build?
19:21:45amiconnI would use vmware - if there would be a convenient way to edit under windows. I could share the home directory and map a network drive - but then many windows apps would become slow when the VM isn't running

19:23:03Slasheriso the problem can be permanently fixed

19:23:59amiconnMy preferred editor works on wine, but wine apps don't get a button in the taskbar, at least not with gnome

19:24:55peturI don't know linux so the step is bigger for me...
19:25:16ArathisSlasheri: which file? I just added two 'logf' lines to tagcache.c so it reportes me the position of the error in tagcache_tmp.tcd. I than used hexedit to see which musicfile this was and deleted it. could have renamed it to a shorter name as well I think.
19:25:20amiconnThe vmware services add up to ~4.5MB of memory here. Nothing to worry about...
19:25:28godzirraCan anyone help me out? I apparently completely ran down my ipod's battery.

19:27:41amiconnOf course it can only display something if there's enough juice for the system to start, but it should charge even without display (I guess)
19:28:05amiconnMaybe it hung, but now charged enough to display something when you reset it?
19:29:01godzirrahow do I reset it?
19:29:09amiconnSelect+Menu, as usual
19:29:21godzirrabut I thought you had to have it turned on to reset it like that?

19:30:31amiconnIt was charging before as well, just you couldn't see that it did
19:30:36*godzirra nods
19:30:38godzirramakes sense.
19:30:51godzirrathingsl ike that cause me to worry though. I wish I could find a h340 =p
19:31:49PaulJam_i think the same situation can happen with a h300 if rockbox hangs while the display is off.
19:32:22godzirraProbably. I just really liked my H120 compared to the ipod ;p
19:33:35ArathisSlasheri: I think so. I deleted the directory at once, don't know why.. but the file had a really long name. I don't know if it was the only one causing this error or just the first. I could test it if it's helpfull

21:57:35lowlightfirst, it waits for Q_CODEC_REQUEST_PENDING, but that is never set in the code (it's commented out) so that loop is skipped and it's possible to return false which indicates that the next track can't be loaded
21:57:42nlsTerrorByte, No, afaik no-one is working on it atm.

22:02:43Paul_the_NerdTerrorByte: For an music player, why should video be a top priority over things like getting bugs fixed, and battery life?
22:02:58amiconn(1) we don't estimate dates (2) rockbox is a dap firmware, so video certainly isn't top priority

22:03:18amiconnDevs are free to choose what they're working on
22:03:25lowlightpondlife: it seems like adding too many debugf/logfs changes the timing of events to the benefit of the check new track queue event so the failure doesn't happen.
22:03:25TerrorByteOf course bugs/battery is important, but nevertheless....
22:03:28TerrorByteYesh I do know that.
22:03:30TerrorByteI can wait.
22:03:48TerrorByteI'm just saying that it should be done eventually.
22:04:10TerrorByteJeez ;P
22:04:55Paul_the_NerdWhat does "eventually" have to do with whether anyone's working on it now, though?
22:05:02lowlightpondlife: it's possible that the white noise may be caused by pcmbuf_play_stop() statement that isn't reached because Q_CODEC_REQUEST_PENDING isn't set. So maybe the pcmbuf plays stuff when it should have been stopped.

23:19:10Paul_the_NerdSo really things need to be optimized to the point where enabling it won't slow everything down to molasses-like speeds
23:19:11TerrorByteAnd how can video playback itself be improved?
23:19:28TerrorByteAbout the encoding of the videos.
23:19:40TerrorByteRight now, it only plays non-encoded forms right?
23:19:56Paul_the_NerdWhat do you mean?
23:19:58BagderMpegPlayer plays... mpeg!
23:20:04Paul_the_NerdRight now it plays MPEG2 and MPEG1 compressed videos...
23:20:11TerrorByteBut nothing else..
23:20:25TerrorByteWill it be able to play other compression videos?
23:20:25Paul_the_NerdI don't understand the question.
23:20:52Paul_the_NerdYou're going to have to reencode videos no matter what to get them to a size to playback decently fast.
23:21:05TerrorByteI see.
23:21:10nlsBagder, does this lok ok from a langv2 perspective ?
23:21:13TerrorByteWow, you guys got sound done for the iPOD :)
23:21:17Paul_the_NerdI mean, do you have a reason to prefer a different compressed format?

23:21:29TerrorByteNo, I don't care what the compression method.
23:21:33TerrorByteAas long as it works.
23:22:13Bagdernls: yes I believe so

23:22:45nlsI will commit it then.

23:27:00Paul_the_NerdTerrorByte: Video playback is slow on all of them right now, except maybe the Nano.
23:27:20Paul_the_NerdThough actually the H10 should be reasonable.

23:29:51Paul_the_NerdThere's not an easy way to predict that

23:30:20TerrorByteWell you said audio and video slows to a crawl.
23:30:25TerrorByteWant me to test the sample file?
23:30:49TerrorByteSo I guess smoothly = video runs a bit faster with audio.
