#rockbox log for 2006-10-22

00:00:11Moosamiconn: during you are here, little question
00:01:00Moosdid you never noticed strange noises from HD, plus not during activity from it
00:02:44*jhMikeS wonders how petur could always be getting 39sec of pre when set to 60s
00:03:35Mooswithout prerecording enabled or if enabled?
00:05:02jhMikeSenabled and said he let it prerecord for well over a minute. On x5 the start point is right but I only have 30s available. It really shouldn't matter though.
00:06:02Moosamiconn: few days ago, I noticed those noise from hardisk when hd isn't spining, just seeking...
00:06:03jhMikeSThere should be no overflowing going on no matter what
00:06:17amiconnIt can't seek when not spinning
00:06:44Moosami: but for this, you need good hears and silent env
00:06:46jhMikeSI thinks it's rounding error...bah
00:07:25amiconnA hd cannot seek when it's not spinning. It would destroy itself (both the heads and the platter surface)
00:07:36Moosnever noticed it with my iriver before
00:08:06*Moos feels silly ;)
00:08:06 Quit ender` (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))

00:10:00amiconnI don't know what you heard, I didn't notice any strange noises from my iriver hds except (1) the known bug in the H300 bootloader with bootloader usb mode (hd performing an emergency park because power is cut while the disk is spinning)
00:10:05MoosI thought the data was buffered then no need of hd
00:10:24Moosspoken about x5 HD
00:10:38amiconnand (2) the spinning noise of my h1x0 hd being a bit louder than normal resulting from a crash to floor incident :/
00:10:42MoosI said never heard those noises with my iriver before
00:10:56MoosI didn't spoken about spining
00:11:03Moosthat the thing
00:11:18Moosbuffer is just filled, then no need of HD right?
00:11:31Moosin playback for exemple
00:11:42amiconnThe X5 hd is a newer toshiba model than those in the irivers, it's generally quieter but more clicky when parking/unparking
00:12:32Moosthat what I thought too
00:12:48Moosbut my hears don't think so
00:13:19*Moos blame his very bad english :(
00:13:52Moosami: do you understand what I'm trying to say?
00:14:13amiconnobviously not :/
00:14:31Genre9mp3Moos: You mean that you hear sounds from the disk even when it's not spinning?
00:14:38Moossorry :( lets rephrase this (trying at least)
00:14:40 Quit ender` (" Studio DEEN owes me OVAs, or therapy. Preferably the former. -- rec.arts.anime.misc poster on Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni endi")
00:15:19Moosand isn't sound of platters working, but like an annoying noise
00:15:31Genre9mp3I never experienced something like this with my H340
00:16:16Moosjust noticed it with my X5 that why I thought that was X5 specific
00:16:29amiconnMoos: If you have 'disk poweroff' enabled, rockbox cuts power to the hd when it's not spinning, so the hd can't actively produce any noise
00:17:17amiconnIf you hear some noise from the X5 when the hd is powered down, the noise must come from some other component of the X5
00:17:29MoosI have "disk poweroff" enabled and listening those noise
00:17:42Moosnot in spining dow period
00:18:08*amiconn tires to understand those darn Makefiles involved in the bitmap build system :(
00:18:22Moosnot HD activity cause in my exemple, playback working and playback buffer filled
00:18:40amiconnI don't get why each dir is touched twice (I've already fixed the 4-fold touching of the plugin bitmaps locally)
00:21:12MoosI'm wondering which chip could produce those noises, in hoping isn't one chip "bad used" or something
00:22:47 Quit Stormy (" HydraIRC -> <- IRC for those that like to be different")
00:24:23*jhMikeS fixed the prerecording time calc :P
00:26:02Mooscongratulations :)

01:12:09amiconnbarrywardell: Your sdl button change triggered red builds, for some reason only in the next build round...
01:12:22barrywardelloh, sorry
01:12:24amiconnH1x0 and H300 have no BUTTON_PLAY, it's called BUTTON_ON
01:12:45barrywardellstrange how they weren't caught the first time
01:12:48barrywardelli'll fix now
01:14:13amiconnI've already seen that happen several times
01:14:33barrywardelli think not all the sims get built every time
01:14:39barrywardellor something like that
01:14:47amiconnThe distributed build system seems to have a timing problem; sometimes it doesn't catch all changes belonging to a commit
01:15:04barrywardellah, i see
01:15:24amiconnMaybe it's because system clocks diffeering a bit (??) (Bagder??)
01:15:32barrywardelljust running a test compile before i commit a fix
01:17:11barrywardellthe build log seems ok though
01:19:42barrywardellhmm. weird. my changes come up twice, in both my own commit and in the second one

02:03:04Kugelfangi can't boot rockbox
02:03:17Kugelfangit keeps booting the ipod firmware
02:03:34scorchethen you have most likely screwed up somehwere with the installation fo the bootloader
02:03:49Kugelfangi will reiterate the steps
02:06:13jhMikeSusing cygwin is a hell of a motivator to want to speed up builds :)
02:06:54Kugelfangscorche: it copied 5.6M to the first partition...
02:07:32Kugelfangscorche: nope, keeps booting the apple thing
02:07:54midkayKugelfang: did you copy a build to the drive?

02:09:21SoapRogerBacon - I have a strong suspicion they would love it if you added your info to the wiki.
02:09:37Soapsince many of the developers are sleeping.
02:09:51RogerBaconwhere i add it to the wiki ?
02:10:14Soapthere is a hardware page for all the players.
02:10:29Soapahh, but you probably don't have wiki write access if you don't know where to put it.
02:10:43Kugelfanghm, i /think/ the bootup takes bit longer than normally, so i guess the bootloader is correctly installed
02:10:54Kugelfangit just doesn't find rockbox :-/
02:10:55Soapyou would need to create a wiki account, then have one of the big guys grant said account write access.
02:11:46Kugelfangah, i just see i need a fonts package
02:11:59Kugelfangcould a missing fonts package be the cause of rockbox not booting?
02:12:38Kugelfangshould i see the rockbox boot screen if the fat partition is not touched at all?
02:12:54Kugelfangor wouldi just see the apple symbol and then the apple firmware?

02:16:37amiconnThe cygwin slowness obviously isn't caused by cygwin itself, but by the windows filesystem layer
02:16:48amiconnAnd using ccache means _more_ file accesses

04:06:16Soapohh, "anyway"
04:07:11PaulJamafaik the nano 2. gen firmware is encrypted. so someone would need to find a way to decrypt it first.
04:08:12Soapand outside of IpodWizard, IpodLinux, and Rockbox, I know of no other way to customize your ipod's software/appearance.
04:09:03SoapIpodWizard will most likely be the first one to have options for the second generation nano, as it is little more than a resource editor, whereas ipodlinux and rockbox are complete firmware replacements.

04:36:54chis00854ralright its
04:38:39linuxstbchis00854r: You will probably need to restore your ipod to a working condition with itunes, and then try the install instructions again from the start. If you failed the first time, and then repeated the instructions with a broken ipod, it will never work.
04:39:23SUSaiyanchis00854r: xchat on windows with a treeview?
04:39:26chis00854rso what do i do:|
04:39:33chis00854ri am on xchat
04:39:41chis00854rdo i unstall..
04:40:02chis00854rand have itunes upload all my songs again
04:40:05chis00854rmy songs arnt saved?
04:40:50SUSaiyanif you do it right your songs should still be there
04:40:59chis00854rok lets do it right?
04:41:13chis00854rwhats the command?
04:41:14linuxstbAt the moment, your songs are probably safe. But itunes will delete them when you use the restore function.
04:41:21Soapif you are paranoid you can always back up your ipod_Control folder.
04:41:53chis00854rok what do i do to get it working?
04:42:05chis00854rjust hit me up with the commands or whatever
04:42:12chis00854rhere we go!
04:42:15linuxstbRestore using itunes, then follow the guide.
04:42:23 Quit JoeBorn (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
04:42:37TerrorByte'hit me up with the commands'? LOL :)
04:42:37chis00854rjust so you know the ipod is new to this computer
04:42:41chis00854rand it had no songs
04:42:56chis00854ri was about to upload songs
04:43:02chis00854rbut the songs are on my ipod
04:43:09chis00854ri had to do a fresh copy of windows
04:43:18linuxstbThe important thing is to keep a safe copy of the bootpartition.bin file you read from a _working_ ipod. You should never need to run the "ipodpatcher -r 1 bootpartition.bin" command more than once.
04:43:28Soapchis00854r - I was going to walk you through the step of restoring the bootpartion.bin file you originally extracted to your ipod, to see if that would be enough to make it boot appleOS again, but linuxstb brings up a good point, repeated failed install attempts mean you probably don't have a proper bootpartition.bin anymore.
04:44:14chis00854rcould we see if I do?
04:44:19Soaplinuxstb - assuming he has appleOS 1.2, can I send him my appleOS 1.1 bootpartion.bin file?
04:44:32chis00854rwhat would be the command...
04:44:32Soapwill it work I guess is the main question.
04:44:42chis00854rlets see :)
04:45:09Soapipodpatcher -w 1 bootpartition.bin
04:45:39TerrorByteAlso hilarious.

04:47:16chis00854rwhat would be the next command?
04:47:31linuxstbSoap: Yes, you could send him your bootpartition.bin.
04:47:44Soapassuming your bootpartion.bin file is clean that will restore your ipod to virgin condition.
04:48:00Soapcleanly unmount your ipod, unplug, and watch it reboot.
04:48:06Soapdoes it boot into apple OS?

04:52:28linuxstbchis00854r: Something else to check is when you write bootpartition.bin, make sure the disk activity icon on your ipod's screen has disappeared before you unplug it.
04:52:55chis00854rshould i disconnect it now?

04:55:08chis00854ralright by right you should send it again :|
04:55:17chis00854rbecause of saving it into same directory

06:03:30chis00854rif i could find a link
06:03:47chis00854r ipod_fw.exe for Windows (executable) Patched for 5.5G (Use only for 5.5G)
06:04:01chis00854ri have to start all over again?
06:04:21Soapignore that
06:04:23Soapstep 1 A
06:05:04Soapyou don't have a 5.5g, you have a 5g. A fifth generation (main) ipod. Not a nano, not a mini, the full sized ipod.
06:05:22chis00854rmines a 60gb
06:05:32yipewhat's the difference between 5g and 5.5g?
06:05:37yipeand don't say .5
06:06:06Soapyipe the 5.5g is the "common" name given by the ipod community to the "late 2006" ipod video as it is called by apple.
06:06:27SoapThe one with the "40%" brighter screen and a search function in the apple firmware.
06:06:29yipewell what's the difference?
06:06:39myzarit's the new ipod
06:06:47PaulJammaybe that part of the page could be arranged a little bit differently. you can easily read it as: "bootloader-nano.bin, for iPod Video/5G users"
06:06:50Soap40% brighter screen, search function, and 2048 vs 512 sectors.
06:06:56chis00854rim so confused
06:06:59myzarrockbox doesn't work on it yet
06:07:00yipeexcept for the screen bit, can you update the apple firmware to get the search function?
06:07:01chis00854rwhats the command i use?
06:07:06yipeI bet not.... apple is jerks
06:07:11chis00854ri bought mine in the summer
06:07:13myzaryou need the new ipod
06:07:18myzarfor the new search function
06:07:21yipewhat jerks
06:07:24myzarthe new sectors is what makes it work
06:07:25*yipe has a 5g
06:07:37yipeand I just bought it a month ago
06:07:38myzarwithout them, the drive drains the battery, i hear
06:08:02chis00854ripodpatcher -w 1 bootloader-video.bin
06:08:25chis00854rsoap is that correct?
06:09:11PaulJam"ipodpatcher -w 1 bootloader-video.bin" is not correct
06:09:25chis00854rwhat is then?
06:09:46Soapstep E
06:09:57chis00854ryou said...
06:10:09chis00854r<Soap> ignore that
06:10:09chis00854r<Soap> step 1 A
06:10:57chis00854rok ipod_fw -g video -o rockboot.bin -i apple_os.bin bootloader-video.bin ?
06:11:09myzarnot to be a troll or anything
06:11:20myzarbut if you cannot follow the instructions on the page
06:11:32PaulJamlooks good
06:11:33myzaryou probably shouldn't be using rockbox, for the simple reason that if you mess up
06:11:40myzaryou are on your own
06:11:50Soapipod is neigh unbrickable.
06:11:59myzarit is now
06:12:08chis00854rok what command?
06:12:10chis00854ripod_fw -g video -o rockboot.bin -i apple_os.bin bootloader-video.bin ???
06:12:19myzarchis00854r, from the top to the bottom
06:12:25myzarjust use the instructions for your ipod
06:12:31chis00854ripod_fw -g video -o rockboot.bin -i apple_os.bin bootloader-nano.bin
06:12:36chis00854rno nano
06:12:40myzaryou aren't skipping any steps and you just do it from the top to the bottom
06:12:41chis00854rso its the first command i said
06:12:49myzaryou have a 5g ipod?
06:12:59chis00854r60gb ipod i guess
06:13:29myzarhe is right.
06:13:33myzar5g is generation
06:13:34chis00854rok its loading
06:13:36chis00854rall set
06:13:37myzar_G is byte
06:13:39myzar_g is bit
06:14:01myzarunderstood, chis00854r?
06:14:12myzarit's as simple as copy pasting what is on the screen into the command prompt
06:14:17Soapmyzar - you aren't helping the situation.
06:14:22Soapwe were going fine.
06:14:26chis00854ripodpatcher -w N rockboot.bin
06:14:38myzarif you cannot follow a command prompt with clear instructions
06:14:41Soapchis00854r - what does the line above that command say?
06:14:45myzaryou probably shouldn't be voiding your ipod's warrenty anyways
06:14:54Soap"replace N with the number you discovered earlier"
06:14:56myzarlet alone doing something which relies on the public doing code edits
06:15:09myzarto further progress of the project
06:15:12chis00854rit generating firmware image compatible with ipod video!
06:15:19chis00854rthen ipodpatcher -w N rockboot.bin ?
06:15:31chis00854rthen ipodpatcher -w 1 rockboot.bin ?
06:15:32linuxstbFirst, how big is your rockboot.bin?
06:15:35Soapreplacing N with the number you discovered earlier, which was 1, correct.
06:15:57Soapthat's the right size.
06:16:03myzargo ahead and write it chis00854r
06:16:07myzaryour installation is complete
06:16:11chis00854ralright awesome
06:16:21chis00854rnow what would be the next step? safe remove?
06:16:29chis00854rsafe remove?
06:16:30Soapif you want to test the bootloader.
06:16:36chis00854rshould i?
06:16:38SoapWhich is all you have installed.
06:16:52chis00854rwell skip it
06:16:58SoapI would say no, as we have verified every file size every step of the way.
06:17:08chis00854rwhats the last step?
06:17:18chis00854ri downloaded the software
06:17:40chis00854ri dont know how to install ...
06:17:43Soaplast step is step 4 - enjoy rockbox.
06:17:57Soapstep 3 is download and read the manual. I can't stress this step enough.
06:18:27chis00854rok ill try it..
06:18:32SoapStep 2 is the _next_ step. You need to extract the .zip file (rockbox-ipodvideo-20061021) to the root of your ipod.
06:18:41chis00854rohh ok
06:19:09SoapNot to get ahead of me, but I know your first question is going to be how do you play your music copied over from itunes, and the answer is Tag Cache in the manual.
06:19:40chis00854ri see
06:19:46chis00854ranother days work ;)
06:20:16chis00854rits so ugly
06:20:18Soapbut first things first, you need to extract the zip file to the root of your ipod.
06:20:30Soapahh, you have rockbox installed and booted then?
06:21:36Soapok, download and install the font package from the download page.
06:22:07Soapthe same way you installed the daily build (rockbox-ipodvideo-20061021) (by extracting it to the root of your ipod)

06:25:16chis00854rhaha ok
06:26:02[sellout]Anyone have any status on ipod nano gen2?
06:26:23Soap[sellout] - nothing
06:26:55[sellout]Soap, I know it does not work, but I am wondering if anyone knows why it does not work, how much the hardware changed, or what help is needed.
06:27:03chis00854ripod wont turn on it
06:27:11chis00854rlike wont work
06:27:25Soapthe firmware is encrypted [sellout], until that egg is cracked there will be next to no progress
06:27:34[sellout]I am about to purchase one tommrow so i would be glad to lend any help..including taking the new one apart and getting specs if they are still needed.
06:27:47[sellout]what the hell.
06:27:49linuxstb[sellout]: 1) The firmware is encrypted, meaning a) We can't disassemble it to reverse-engineer; b) We can't run our own code on the ipod until we can encrypt our own code using the same encryption.
06:28:06chis00854ripod isnt working now at all..

06:28:21[sellout]What kind of encryption, do we know?
06:28:33 Join RedKrieg [0] (
06:28:40Soapchis00854r - what did you do between saying "ugly" and saying it won't turn on?
06:28:51[sellout]I have a friend who is an encryption genious, that is all he does, he would love a new type of encryption to hammer.
06:29:03SPikeyotwistyoquick qeustion with a video Ipod 5th generation is it possibleto port an snes emulator on to rockbox
06:29:03chis00854ri did nothing
06:29:08chis00854rwill ill reboot maybe
06:29:15linuxstb2) The main system-on-a-chip has changed from PortalPlayer to Samsung - meaning all the low-level drivers (ATA, i2c, i2s etc) won't work. So it's basically a brand new port and almost none of the existing ipod code will help.
06:29:37SPikeyotwistyoim a noob so is that a no?
06:29:53Soapchis00854r - you did nothing? Did the battery die?
06:29:54[sellout]linuxstb, ...ouch
06:30:04chis00854rSoap i turned it off...
06:30:16linuxstb[sellout]: Then set him loose on the Nano. Once the firmware is decrypted, I'm sure progress will be made - but that's a hard nut to crack.
06:30:16[sellout]So basically it means starting from scratch...after a way to get to the code is figured out.
06:30:23Soapand when you plug it into your computer to load the font package?
06:30:34chis00854rand now i tried connecting it to usb and now it wont turn on when connected to usb
06:30:51Soapchis00854r - I suspect your battery is deeply discharged.
06:30:52[sellout]linuxstb, do you know anything about the encryption? IS it propriatary or a known scheme?
06:30:55SPikeyotwistyoim sure the 5g can handle snes from what i know about processor speed
06:31:04SPikeyotwistyoi know C++
06:31:09chis00854rwas full..
06:31:11SPikeyotwistyoan basic programing
06:31:29SPikeyotwistyoim more than the average person
06:31:33SPikeyotwistyonot full geek tho
06:31:39chis00854rgoing to restart
06:31:57Soapchis00854r - toggle the hold swith on, then off again, them press and hold menu and the center button (select) at the same time.
06:31:58SPikeyotwistyojust a pissed off guy who spent his money on a dam apple an hated the OS so switched to RB
06:31:59[sellout]SPikeyotwistyo, unless you at least run linux, your not even partially geek. ;-)
06:32:14SPikeyotwistyoya i know
06:32:20SPikeyotwistyoim a wanna bie geek
06:32:34linuxstb[sellout]: No, I have no idea. If your friend is serious, he should probably talk to leachbj - the original ipodlinux developer. I think he's working on the 2nd gen Nano. He's sometimes in this channel, or #ipodlinux.
06:32:47[sellout]SPikeyotwistyo, the noob linux...then downlaod a real life, like gentoo, or build our own from vanilla source.
06:32:51[sellout]Then you can be a geek.
06:33:06[sellout]Now you owe me 250$ for my advice
06:33:07SPikeyotwistyothanks for the site ill check it out
06:33:08chis00854rso down hold down then let go then down again let go then center hold?
06:33:11[sellout]see...geeks are allowed to do that.
06:33:16SPikeyotwistyogeeks really do make moremoney
06:33:48SPikeyotwistyomy girlfriend made me quit W0W because i wouldnt talk to her while i was in it
06:33:48Soapchis00854r - hold is a slide switch, slide it to the right, then back to the left.
06:34:04SPikeyotwistyothat thing always makes me think its gonna break
06:34:04Soapthen press AND HOLD menu and the center button at the same time.
06:34:14[sellout]lini, oh leach is working on it? ok cool i know him, I went though a dozen ipod 4gs when he was working on them and testing his and courtcs code.
06:34:23[sellout]I will take it up with him then, thanks.

06:36:21Soapchis00854r I doubt it was fully charged. leave it plugged into a powered USB port for 1/2 an hour at least before trying again.
06:36:30BossierTo whom it may concern: I would like to be added to TwikiUsersGroup (I'm TravisTooke) so that I may add to the CVS page.
06:36:50linuxstbThe 5g also has a completely undocumented (and hence unused in Rockbox) Broadcom video processor. I think that runs at > 100MHz, but as I said, there is no documentation available about how to use it.

06:39:24SPikeyotwistyoill check cant be more then 15-20 or so

06:39:52SPikeyotwistyoif i remeber correctly
06:39:52Soapisn't the rule-of-thumb you need an order of magnitude more processor to emulate?

06:50:51chis00854rits not a deadbattery because it would say do not disconnect
06:51:02Soapchis00854r - not a totally dead battery.
06:51:04myzarsee, chis00854r

06:51:32Soapneed to port the Apple ][e emulator.
06:51:41Soapchis00854r - not in rockbox it wouldn't have.
06:51:46myzarif the size was correct and you really did everything right, there is NO way rockbox could do a thing to the ipod
06:51:57chis00854rbut windows didnt find the ipod
06:51:58Soapchis00854r - no one has yet bricked their ipod with rockbox, you would be a pioneer.
06:52:07myzarchis00854r, you can always plug it in or force disk mode
06:52:09myzarand restore it
06:52:17myzarerasing anything you did to it when installing rockbox
06:52:31Soapchis00854r - windows didn't find it because it hasnt' booted into disk mode because the frickin' battery is dead.
06:52:42myzarcharge your battery and boot into disk mode
06:52:51funkydoes anyone in here have tried to install ipodlinux on an ipod where apple + rockbox is already installed?
06:52:53Soapjust wait with it plugged in,.
06:52:59myzarplug it into the wall, boot into disk mode, then swith quickly to the pc
06:53:16chis00854ri see it could be like a small percentage like 18 % dead and it will take a hour to load...
06:53:24chis00854rwhy is it such a long wait..
06:53:34chis00854rwe need developers
06:53:40Soapyou need paitence
06:53:45myzarbecause this community
06:53:48chis00854rok ok
06:53:50myzaras well as any open source community
06:53:58myzarworks off the fact that users submit bug reports
06:54:01myzarand try to fix it themselves
06:54:08myzarthis is why firefox is better than microsoft
06:54:19myzarbecause the millions of people that use firefox can patch it when a bug is found
06:54:34myzarwhereas microsoft only has at most a few hundred programmers that only work 8 hours a day
06:54:35SPikeyotwistyoall hail mozilla!
06:54:37myzarmonday through friday
06:55:02SPikeyotwistyoare yo being sarcastic>
06:55:07linuxstbfunky: ipodlinux requires your ipod to be repartitioned, so it's easier to just restore using itunes, install IPL using the IPL GUI installer, and then just unzip the latest to your ipod (the IPL bootloader will detect and boot it).
06:55:08myzarit's quite true
06:55:25myzaropen source can be fixed by anyone
06:55:38myzarand closed source can only be fixed when the company deems it so, on their time
06:55:49funkylinuxstb: so the order is, apple firm, ipl, rockbox
06:55:55funkyusing loader2
06:56:18funkyok, thx
06:56:29chis00854rsoap what time is it for you?
06:56:34linuxstbfunky: Exactly. It's possible to do it in another order, but you need to manually install IPL, and repartition without losing the existing Rockbox install.
06:57:16funkywell, I could try to it, but I think I'll finish earlier if I just start from scratch again

07:00:59chis00854rdoes rockbox slow down your computer?
07:01:20Soapchis00854r - seeing as it is not installed on your computer it would be hard pressed to.
07:02:02myzarrockbox is installed on the iPod
07:02:10myzarhow can it slow down a computer?
07:02:31chis00854rwell everytime i connect the ipod into the usb it slows everything down
07:03:09chis00854rits fine.. ctrl alt delete works when closing explorer.exe
07:03:10Soappart of that is windows
07:03:12chis00854rthen running it again
07:03:17Soappart of that might be your virus scanner
07:03:30chis00854ri see
07:04:39chis00854ris there a way to get themes?
07:04:44chis00854rafterwards ..
07:04:54chis00854rright now the comuter is frozen
07:05:04Soapafter you install the font package.
07:05:19chis00854rok cool
07:05:22Soapnone of the themes with album art will work on your ipod right now
07:05:36Soapnone of the ones with scrolling margins will work on your ipod right now
07:05:44Soapthe jclix ones won't either.
07:06:21funkyscrolling margins ?
07:06:29Soapin general, read the fine print below the pretty picture you like. The theme's author should have mentioned if special patches are required to use the theme.
07:06:40chis00854rgot the fonts
07:06:50Soapfunky - a patch to set margins/limits on a scrolling text line.
07:07:11funkyaha, didnt know
07:07:37chis00854rso i could download the themes and copy it to the root of the ipod?
07:07:49chis00854rwell extract it first
07:08:35Soapyes, extract it to the root of your ipod (assuming the theme was packaged correctly, but that is a topic for another day)
07:08:43Soapwhat theme are you looking at?
07:08:45chis00854rok neat
07:08:54chis00854rhow would i get my songs onto the ipod?
07:09:11Soapyou just treat your ipod like a hard drive and move them over.
07:09:33chis00854roh a simple copy and paste?
07:09:35SoapRockbox's default method is to let you browse directories kind of like windows explorer.
07:09:39funkychis00854r: btw you can also read a bit some of the docs in the wiki
07:10:07chis00854rhow would i get my existing songs i had before into rockbox?
07:10:08Soapuse Tag Cache if you want to access the music placed on your ipod by itunes.
07:10:16Soapand you need to read the manual on that.
07:10:26funkySoap: tag cache works fine ?
07:10:32funkyI havent tried it yet
07:10:40funkyI got rockbox since a couple of days
07:10:43SoapI've been hand holding for 2.5 hours now. Not going to do it for another hour for tag cache.
07:10:44chis00854rgot a link?
07:10:54Soapfunky - tag cache isn't perfect...
07:11:09Soapchis00854r - links to the manuals are all over the website.
07:11:09chis00854rwhat is perfect?
07:11:15chis00854rok great
07:11:55chis00854rWPS Tags
07:12:24chis00854rcan you copy avi files to the ipod and play them?
07:12:58chis00854rthats a bummer
07:12:59Nimdaetag cache is actually rather easy to use
07:13:10chis00854rok i have to go through every song and do the command?
07:14:19Nimdaeyou enable it, initialize the db, and you should be good to go
07:14:20PaulJamchis00854r: have you read the manual yet? it really answers many questions.
07:14:32Nimdaeyeah, manual is really recommended ;)
07:14:36chis00854rok im reading
07:14:40Nimdaeso is the wiki
07:14:47Nimdaewhich has the manual on it
07:15:32Soapso is the search function of the forums.
07:15:42funkydoes tag cache come within rockbox?
07:15:48funkyor its a patch?
07:16:00PaulJamno. it's included
07:16:00funkyI havent seen anything about it in the menus

07:20:53chis00854rno no
07:21:11chis00854rneed a tag cache link..
07:21:29Soapyou need to read the manual from start to finish, then you won't need a tag cache link.
07:21:36funkyonce I've initialized the tag cache, where are the files?
07:21:47Soaphunting and pecking for jewels of information will leave you with vast holes in your understanding.
07:22:27chis00854ryou run tag cache on the ipod?
07:22:45PaulJamfunky: reboot and set fileview to tagcache(or id3 database).
07:23:45funkyah, I need to reboot, thx

08:59:19aliaskWell, maybe not that long, but it resets after a while.
08:59:31_flik_ok, i tried for four seconds, which normally works
08:59:50aliaskJust hold it till it works. :)
09:00:18_flik_did that for 30 seconds now, still hangs
09:00:36_flik_i guess it crashed badly
09:01:28aliaskHrm, that's odd. That button combo is hardware, so it shouldn't matter that it's frozen.

09:12:43Bagderlife is good
09:13:48myzarand how goes rockbox
09:13:53myzarand the greater persuit of happiness?
09:14:10Bagderrockbox moves forward in a steady pace
09:14:17 Join tvelocity [0] (
09:14:18scorchebut is it really a greater pursuit?
09:14:23myzarlife can be good, but if rockbox is not good
09:14:30myzarlife is not truly complete
09:14:36myzarmaking it not "good"
09:14:53myzarwell, it is if Bagder and the team are working towards getting the 5.5gs working
09:14:59myzarbut i can only work towards my dreams
09:15:21myzarBagder, make me the happiest girl alive!
09:15:25myzarTELL ME IT'S TRUE!
09:15:44BagderI don't work on the 5.5
09:15:55BagderI don't even own any ipod
09:16:03Alcuinthis is to make the mp3 players compatible with linux, or is it just an alternative firmware?
09:16:11BagderI do have three sansas now though ;-)
09:16:14myzarBagder, but is it true work is being done? :P
09:16:20*Bagder picked up the other two at Linus' place yday
09:16:21myzari have NEVER seen any other programmer
09:16:25myzarother than kal and godzirra
09:16:29myzareven mention it
09:16:41myzaris there a team of secret undercover rockbox developers in here that i am oblivious to?
09:17:04*myzar eyes the channel
09:17:23*scorche walks out while holding a black sheet over a person
09:17:26myzarif i sleep with every one of them, the chance that a working rockbox for 5.5g ipods will come out will increase a hundred fold
09:17:36*scorche escorts them to the secret channel
09:18:14Bagdermyzar: well for starters, 5.5 problems need to be fixed by 5.5 owners
09:18:27Bagderand not that many devs have 5.5 ipods
09:18:48myzaryes, a valid point
09:18:54myzarbut with that logic, Bagder
09:19:02myzarby the time any of the devs get 5.5gs
09:19:09myzarthe 6.5gs will be out
09:19:14myzarjudging by the time people normally upgrade
09:19:20scorcheyour logic is flawed
09:19:32myzarmy logic is that if they just got 5g ipods to get video working
09:19:42scorchenow lets gat back tot he sleeping with people to get the 5.5gs working?
09:19:45myzarthey won't upgrade to 5.5 shortly afterwards when 6g is almost out
09:20:07myzarwe need a donation fund, Bagder
09:20:13Bagderwell, we had 5g support loooong after it was released
09:20:19Bagdermyzar: we already have
09:20:22myzaror just a way to get the devs to borrow some 5.5s from their friends
09:20:24*scorche points to the donate button
09:20:36myzar"You got a new IPOD? Really?"
09:20:43Bagderdonate more and we'll buy devs more devices
09:20:45myzar"How about i give you my SUPER DOOPER COOL ONE in exchange!"
09:20:48Alcuinwhy are the devs so focused on ipod? popularity?
09:20:57scorcheAlcuin: we arent
09:20:57BagderAlcuin: what says we are?
09:21:02myzarthey aren't
09:21:04amiconnmyzar: The logic is still a bit off. There's still the possibility that a new developer with a 5.5g joins the project
09:21:12myzarin what period of time, amiconn
09:21:18AlcuinBadger: Well, only my observations thus far of the conversation.
09:21:19myzardevelopers don't grow on trees
09:21:20scorcheexample: barrywardell ;)
09:21:22myzargood ones are a rarity
09:21:33myzarand even then, they need to know ipods and rockbox
09:21:35BagderAlcuin: don't judge the whole team based on myzar's ramblings ;-)
09:21:41myzaroh, i'm not rambling
09:21:47myzari'm cranky and depressed
09:21:55AlcuinAny particular device the focus?
09:22:04myzarthere isn't really a focus
09:22:04Bagdermyzar: so join in and make things happen instead
09:22:09myzari cannot
09:22:09scorchethere is no "focus"
09:22:15myzari do low level programming
09:22:15BagderAlcuin: whatever each and everyone likes
09:22:24AlcuinWhat's the goal?
09:22:24myzari doubt i can help with anything in rockbox
09:22:29BagderAlcuin: having fun
09:22:30amiconnThere are already a lot of devs who contributed to the project. The credits list 235
09:22:34myzari can only don some pom poms
09:22:36myzarand cheer you on
09:22:57AlcuinIs it to integrate them with Linux, or just offer alternative firmwares?
09:23:04Bagderrockbox is not linux
09:23:10Bagdernot even close
09:23:11 Quit damaki (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
09:23:18Alcuinjust an alternative firmware?
09:23:23 Quit Quazgaa (Remote closed the connection)
09:23:24Bagder"just" that yes
09:23:37Bagderits about having the best possible firmware on your DAP
09:23:40Alcuinsorry, i didn't intend that to be a slight
09:24:21daurnits about turning a nice piece of hardware, with crap, proprietry software, into something great
09:24:38Alcuinwell i liked my old nomad jukebox zen, but since my upgrade to Gigabeat S, the lack of deleating, playlist creation, and other seemingly obvious features has me blue
09:24:43amiconnBagder: Hmm, I thought Zagor was 'mister fat.c', but the header lists Linus as the author. Do I remember something wrong?
09:25:11Bagderamiconn: Zagor based his work on something basic Linus once started, afair
09:25:48Bagderbut iirc, the code Linus had was just fat16 or something like that
09:26:18amiconnHmm, the rockbox fat driver was fat32 only when [IDC]Dragon and me did the ondio port
09:26:31amiconnWe had to add fat16...
09:26:42BagderI know, Zagor ripped all of that out
09:26:58Bagdersince we only needed fat32 in that first version
09:27:11AlcuinDoes Creative still produce players with delete, playlist creation, and all the other features?
09:27:52amiconnAt least one of the 5.5g problems can be tackled by any dev feeling like fiddling with the fat driver code
09:28:02amiconn(the sector size problem)
09:28:37BagderAlcuin: don't expect to find my creative fans/owners here since rockbox doesn'r run on any creative player

13:40:58amiconnOn top-level it didn't work for me. Building the plugins errored out
13:41:27*amiconn tries again
13:42:28LearWorks for me (in LDOPTS) on Cygwin... But you're talking about getting stdout/stderr on the console in the SDL sim, right? :)
13:43:14amiconnThere are just 2 things required. (1) Building rockboxui as a console application, (2) not using SDL_main()
13:43:29Mikachucan't you just tail -f stderr.txt ?
13:43:41amiconnToo cumbersome
13:43:56LearI still use SDL_main, but I did pass some configure option when I buildt SDL.
13:43:59amiconnSDL_main isn't really needed on windows and linux, only on osx
13:45:01amiconnSo I just #undef main in uisdl.c for win32 environments
13:45:59LearI think I set −−enable-stdio-redirect to no...
13:46:25amiconnI've read about that as well, but it requires rebuilding sdl
13:47:26LearBtw, those Makefile tweaks did speed things up a little. But only about 20% on an "empty rebuild" on Cygwin...
13:47:41amiconnStill better than nothing imo
13:48:43LearThe interesting thing is that Cygwin is so far from pegging the CPU (even blocking other tasks, it seems). I rarely see more than about 30% CPU usage.
13:49:04amiconnThe slowness is caused by the windows filesystem layer
13:50:58amiconnI did an experiment. When compiling on linux but the source & build tree is stored on a windows system, compilation is as slow as on cygwin
13:51:18amiconn(access was from a linux VM with the vmware hgfs module)
13:56:55amiconnLear: Works with -mconsole in LDOPTS :)

16:35:03Paul_the_NerdGenre9mp3: Yep, I *think* the commented out line that says "//#define CONFIG_CHARGING CHARGING_SIMPLE" needs to instead not be commented out and say "#define CONFIG_CHARGING CHARGING_MONITOR"
16:35:34Paul_the_NerdGenre9mp3: I've had it enabled in the past on my Nano, but the line was different back then, I think the name and value of the define was changed just for readability though.
16:36:04Genre9mp3Is this "disabled" only for Nano or other targets as well?
16:36:40Paul_the_NerdI can't look through all of them. :-P
16:36:58Paul_the_NerdIt's *enabled* on iPod Video, H100 series, etc.
16:37:17Genre9mp3Can you point me to the file in the source so I can check?

16:42:26PaulJami have a question about the genlang script: when using the -u option, is it possible to make it also mark the lines where the english.lang contains target specific strings, but the translated.lang doesn't?
16:44:32*Paul_the_Nerd mutters something about programs associating themselves with .h files while he's not looking.
16:47:39Genre9mp3Paul_the_Nerd: I found out that the CHARGING_SIMPLE is commented out on all iPod targets except iPod Video
16:48:11Genre9mp3iPod video uses the CHARGING_MONITOR like H300 for example
16:49:34barrywardellother ipods can't detect the charger iirc
16:49:50barrywardellthat's probably the reason
16:50:19Paul_the_Nerdbarrywardell: They can
16:50:24Paul_the_Nerdbarrywardell: At least the Nano can.
16:50:24Genre9mp3...and as I can see charge monitoring doesn't work properly for H100s, too
16:50:32barrywardellsee firmware/target/arm/ipod/power-ipod.c
16:50:46Paul_the_NerdThey can't necessarily detect the charge level, but they can detect that they are charging.
16:50:48barrywardellthey only detect usb power
16:51:20Paul_the_Nerdbarrywardell: USB/Firewire are the only ways to charge an iPod.
16:51:47barrywardellthere's the charger you plug the usb cable into too
16:51:59Paul_the_NerdThat's still USB power though
16:52:16Paul_the_NerdOr in some cases, with the older ones, firewire power.
16:52:34barrywardellwell the code is only there to detect usb power, not charger power, so maybe that's the problem
16:52:49Paul_the_NerdWe can't differentiate it from the USB cable at this time, because we detect USB insertion by the delivery of USB power, so the wall charger reboots the iPod.
16:53:25Paul_the_NerdGenre9mp3: Anyway, if you add that line in, you get a charging animation at least (my battery logo in icatcher shows an animation of filling up, cycling)
16:53:25 Quit myzar (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
16:54:27Genre9mp3Paul_the_Nerd: Nice. This means taht the Nano can at least detect when the charger is plugged in
16:55:38Genre9mp3Paul_the_Nerd: You used CHARGING_SIMPLE or CHARGING_MONITOR ?
16:57:52Paul_the_NerdGenre9mp3: Monitor
16:58:20Paul_the_NerdGenre9mp3: The H120 shows the animation too though. Did you look at the H120 file, or the H100 file?
16:59:27Genre9mp3Paul_the_Nerd: Yes.. they use CHARGING_MONITOR as well but there is a FIXME comment that says: remove that once monitoring is fixed properly
17:00:20Genre9mp3but it's CHARGING_SIMPLE that is commented out and not CHARGING_MONITOR, so I'm a bit confused
17:00:36Paul_the_NerdGenre9mp3: The fixme may be old.
17:00:53Paul_the_NerdGenre9mp3: Or they could mean that right now it doesn't actually monitor the charging state, just whether charging is happening.
17:00:59amiconnIt's not
17:01:14*Paul_the_Nerd has no clue about it.
17:01:31amiconnThe whole power monitoring is an utter mess
17:01:35Genre9mp3Also there are some other targets that they use CHARGING_SIMPLE (H10, iAudio X5, gigabeat)
17:02:02Paul_the_NerdGenre9mp3: The thing about the Nano, is that it didn't even use CHARGING_SIMPLE, it wasn't defined.
17:02:54amiconnPaul_the_Nerd: This is because no one analysed how charging monitoring or at least power plug-in monitoring works on the ipods, except video
17:03:27amiconnIt will still charge fine as charging is hardware controlled, but rockbox can't tell
17:04:02Paul_the_Nerdamiconn: So what kind of behaviour does that enable?
17:04:13Genre9mp3Paul_the_Nerd: Since you tested it, at least we know it can detect whether it's charging or not... but can't monitor it (?)
17:04:58Genre9mp3...meaning that Rockbox won't be able to tell if the charging is stopped when full
17:05:36Paul_the_NerdGenre9mp3: Well... my battery was nearly full, and now the charging animation has stopped, and it simply shows a full battery (4 Bars in iCatcher) instead...
17:06:39Genre9mp3Paul_the_Nerd: From what you say I understand that it works then on Nano
17:06:47Paul_the_NerdI don't know.
17:07:04Paul_the_NerdI don't know if there's supposed to be more to charging monitoring, or anything.
17:07:44Genre9mp3Yes... we can't be sure about that... but at least it detects when the charger is plugged in, that's for sure

18:27:15Paul_the_NerdOn the 80gig there seem to be some hardware differences with the ATA.
18:27:32Paul_the_NerdOn the 30gig there seem to be some issues relating to the playback control file writing that seem uncertain.
18:27:45Kasperlei see
18:28:26Paul_the_NerdKasperle: On a 5.5G 30gig iPod, it is possible to get it running if you do a lot of manual effort to essentially change the disk into a condition similar to that of the 5G iPod 30gig, but then it becomes difficult to transfer files to it, as well as likely preventing the retail firmware from working.

18:44:32Genre9mp3hehe.. then he asks: "So I would download... the compiler source?"

23:04:55LearSo when I seek back to the start of the file, it doesn't detect that part of the file isn't buffered any more. This will in turn trigger a buffer refill (since widx and ridx are wrong)...

23:21:26bluebrothertucoz, I was thinking it would be nice if one could issue a "make manual" when configured as sim or default build
23:21:45bluebrotherbut the build system is a bit complicated.

23:25:24jhMikeSpetur: here!
23:25:55peturjhMikeS: just compared CVS and patched recording in WAV/stereo/44kHz: CVS version does start/stop times correct (30 seconds prerec, no missing samples at the end), the patched version gives me 36 seconds prerec and also no missing stuff at the end (which must thus be related to the mp3 encoder)
23:26:27peturso your patch certainly breacs pre-rec, tho not in a bad way
23:26:31jhMikeSpetur: I never could get any missing samples myself.
23:26:53peturyou mean at the end?
23:27:04bluebrotherpixelma, strange. When configuring it as sim it doesn't work for me (on linux)
23:27:40jhMikeSpetur: yep...kept talking into the mic and hitting stop and it always got everything. I can't duplicate that one.
23:27:45luckzpetur: heya :p
23:28:32tucozbluebrother, it starts building, but stops at the platform file
23:28:43peturjhMikeS: ok, let me re-test that to make sure then
23:28:44bluebrothertucoz, same for me.
23:28:46jhMikeSpetur: but I did have a little mistake adding up the total time of the encoder chunks but got that.
23:29:25pixelmathe pdf ends up in a "manual" folder inside the build directory (configured as sim - just tested a normal build, too)

23:35:19tucozbluebrother, i think i know why it stops at the platform file. That is called h120 in the sim, but h1xx for the manual. That is why it isn't found
23:35:26lostlogicLear: a more graceful solution isn't coming to mind, and that is the technical definition of the overlap situations.
23:36:13tucozpixelma, you probably built a manual where the ARCHOS= is the same for both sim/default as for the manual.
23:36:31bluebrotherah, yes. The h300 manual works
23:36:39tucozi think that is fixable
23:36:55tucozI changed the configure script ages to ago for something like that
23:37:09bluebrotherthen someone should fix that ;-)
23:37:09pixelmatried h10 (sim) and ondiofm (build)
23:37:21tucozI think it was when the ondios were split in two manuals.
23:37:24*Soap interjects into the manual discussion that the Nano manual needs to talk about the differences between the 1st and 2nd generation Nanos.
23:37:30bluebrotherlet's see if I succeed.
23:37:45tucozpixelma, try the h120 sim, and build a manual. That will fail.
23:37:47Learlostlogic: not quite fully backwards compatible. In one case, the current seek target is the argument. Having a "min buffer size" of, say, 20 MB isn't that great, I'd think.
23:38:11Learlostlogic: I'll have a quick check on the patch, but it's getting kind of late here...
23:38:46lostlogicLear: it's small −− ah, I must not have caught the existing call with an int. I'll check it out.
23:39:22peturjhMikeS: strange, now I have no missing samples at the end now when recording mp3... either it was too late when I tried it or it's something glitchy.
23:39:26Learlostlogic: patch looking good; didn't think of filerem myself. (Not that familiar with the code, so...)
23:39:57Learlostlogic: the call is in the audio_rebuffer_and_seek call.
23:40:08lostlogicLear: hmm.. the call with the seek target is what I changed it to an int for −− you must read at least as far into a file as the seek target, or badness happens
23:40:09 Part Paul_the_Nerd
23:40:19tucozSoap, do you think it's enough to call the nano, nano 1st gen
23:40:29tucozSoap, on the front page
23:40:33lostlogicah, should be newpos - CUR_TI->startpos perhaps?
23:40:53LearYes, that sounds about right...
23:41:14***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
23:41:23Soaptucoz - that should be enough, though there have been two newbies in the last two days who didn't grasp the whole 1st/2nd generation Nano thing.
23:41:30preglowanyone care to tell me how resume works at the codec api layer?
23:41:32bluebrotherok, fmrecorder, recorderv2 and ipodmini2g builds should also fail
23:41:36lostlogicLear: actually the existing code is right
23:42:00lostlogicsee the line about 14 lines up "newpos = conf_preseek" when newpos starts out larger than conf_preseek
23:42:09tucozbluebrother, probably. This is harder to fix than I first thought.
23:42:17Soaptucoz - on the Wiki page I said "plastic front, not the all aluminum bodied 2nd generation"
23:42:18lostlogicpreglow: I thought you wrote it, I don't remember :-\
23:42:39tucozSoap, do you know LaTeX?
23:42:53Soapbut anything is better than now. For if someone goes straight to downloads, and installs from the manual, there is nothing telling them this is not for a second generation nano also.
23:43:14Soaptucoz - no I don't. I could read up on it this week.
23:43:19jhMikeSpetur: maybe you just hit stop too soon? ;)
23:43:23tucozSoap, or that is not needed actually. If you tell me what to write, and where to put it, it is a quick fix.

23:43:37tucozSoap, plain text will do :)

23:44:47lostlogicpreglow: there are two ways for it to work, see audio_load_track near "if (offset > 0)"
23:44:50tucozLaTeX is quite similiar to the wiki syntax.
23:45:23lostlogicpreglow: for codecs that we don't support full streaming on, it just sets the offset var on the api
23:45:39tucoz(in concept at least)
23:45:48lostlogicpreglow: for codecs that support full streaming, it just seeks the file and sets the codec api variables appropriately
23:47:55Learlostlogic: for my test case, the patch it seems to work fine.
23:48:04Learworks fine, I meant to say. :)
23:48:17preglowlostlogic: 'full streaming' in this context meaning...?
23:49:30bluebrothertucoz, I think I found a solution :)
23:49:44Learpreglow: I'd say, "don't need to read any file header data".
23:49:50tucozgood. may i ask what the strategy was?
23:49:57lostlogicpreglow: mp3 can start from anywhere in the file, it's the only codec that we've taught to do that so far
23:50:18preglowlostlogic: looks like wavpack does that too
23:50:25Learlostlogic: because it's "naked" frames and no container.
23:50:29lostlogicoops, yeah.
23:50:36bluebrotherreplace the ARCHOS variable in the manual makefile with something else. Set this to the value of ARCHOS until one of the affected builds is chosen.
23:50:38lostlogicLear: yep
23:50:46preglowLear: some variants of aac are like that too
23:51:00tucozbluebrother, i see.
23:51:11preglowperhaps all, i don't know which format ended up the most popular
23:51:14Learpreglow: none that we support though. But don't they contain a small header (or what is that ADTS I've read about).
23:51:23bluebrotherBut I need to test it a bit to make sure I didn't broke anything
23:51:54preglowLear: dunno what they're called, but you've got one aac format with a small header describing all frames, then a format that's more like mp3
23:52:00preglowagain, don't know if both are in regular use
23:52:01tucozCan you include the html dir to make clean as well?
23:52:50bluebrotherdamn. Sim doesn't build anymore.
23:52:59bluebrothertucoz, I'll do that.
23:53:44tucozgood. i see where that should be added, but i figured, since you are working on the makefiles.
23:53:52LearHm.. AC3 decoder could probably be made "fully streaming".
23:54:43 Quit Parachutes ("oh shi-")
23:57:11preglowlostlogic: is there any point in setting the offset value for those codecs? doesn't look like they use the value at all, and there's really no reason they should
23:57:44tucozbluebrother, so the clean entry in the Makefile in the manual directory is in fact never called.
23:58:14lostlogicpreglow: sadly, I have no idea what that value is used for... does it get transferred to seek_time automatically somehow to make the codec startup and then immediately seek to the desired position?
23:58:21bluebrotherit could get called if someone cd's into that dir.
23:58:24lostlogicpreglow: those codecs definitely do support resume, so ...
23:58:31tucozbluebrother, aha
23:58:33Learpreglow: you mean at end of audio_load_track?
23:58:41bluebrotherbut the change is needed in the configure script
23:58:46Learoffset is used for resume in several formats.
