#rockbox log for 2006-11-05

00:05:36jhMikeSpetur: should I keep that option to create files immediately or dump it? I just need some ops on that.
00:07:58 Quit ender` (" There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence. -- Jeremy S)
00:09:12peturthat option causes no spinup when starting recording, right?
00:09:18jhMikeSIt's more of a paranoia thing really. Each file will be started immediatly on disk and the last flushed and closed instead of delaying everything till flush
00:09:24peturor the inverse of that rather
00:10:11jhMikeSThe disk will always spin on the first file if you don't have a RTC though since it must seach for the number
00:10:29peturIf you stop recording it flushes anyway, right?

00:11:45peturI'd put it in comment

00:13:02peturI don't think it's a feature somebody will miss if it's not there, and I'm a bit against adding yet another setting ;)

00:14:13rasherHow about simply being paranoid always?
00:14:20jhMikeSI concur. Internal mic users hated having the disk spin all the time but wasn't sure about others.
00:14:25rasherFew things worse than a taper who just lost his work
00:14:50peturyou only miss 3 minutes max
00:14:58jhMikeSThat's why I put it there...
00:15:26rasherJust seems to me that paranoia is the best way to go, if you're not adding an option
00:15:26peturit's not that you'd miss much audio, but you'd need to fix the header
00:15:29jhMikeSpetur: but if it doesn't finish the file the header won't be valid. I guess youd need a program that would read it anyway.
00:15:58peturI would rather not spin the disk ;)
00:16:04rasherBut I haven't been paying much attention to recording at all, so feel free to ignore me completely.
00:16:21*petur ignores rasher :p
00:18:02*jhMikeS says nothing
00:18:54rasherHrm. ~/.ccache is safe to delete at any time, right?

01:09:21obobut I think most say that > 6 it's impossible to abx any difference
01:09:47Davide-NYCJdGordon: -q 8 is just over 256 in general
01:09:51JdGordonok ta
01:10:09JdGordoni tihnk q6 would be fine for my non-audiofle ears :p
01:10:32Davide-NYCI say go 8

01:10:57Davide-NYClooking like a total dork
01:11:09JdGordonq 6 is already 6.8mb for 5min track.... i prefer more songs, not higher qual
01:11:18Davide-NYCthere ya go!
01:11:34jhMikeSthen just use the lowest setting
01:11:38amiconnlinuxstb: Updating source: in english.lang actually makes sense most of the time
01:11:55JdGordoni checked q4 nd i think thats even too low for me :p
01:11:58Davide-NYCjhMikeS: how's 'it' going?
01:12:04jhMikeSlol it's always english.lang
01:12:20amiconnA source: change is what will cause the entry to be marked in the other .lang files as needing attention
01:12:21jhMikeS'it"s' going pretty well
01:12:38Davide-NYCwill we be seeing 'it' soon?
01:12:47jhMikeSI think so.
01:13:23Davide-NYClike this weekend? cause after that I won;t be able to do anyhting in the way of testing
01:13:24jhMikeShas a quirk on the SPDIF output, but I mentioned that it's probably there already.
01:13:36amiconnThe only thing that should never be changed without special precautions is the id: field
01:13:37jhMikeSLike tonight or tomorrow.
01:13:39Davide-NYCdescribe the quirk
01:14:17jhMikeSIt doesn't always turn on when it should but I don't want to make this update any larger than it is. I'll address those things in bits and pieces.
01:14:17amiconnjhMikeS: What quirk? s/pdif out is working flawless here, and that's the only s/pdif feature I actually use
01:15:24jhMikeSamiconn: then maybe it's new. it's tied to recording. but if you put in on in the menu and play then it will be on all the time as it should.
01:15:59amiconnHmm, s/pdif and recording is a bit weird on h1x0
01:16:22Davide-NYCthere is no menu item for it is there?
01:16:31amiconnYou need to enable s/pdif power for s/pdif recording to work, something I wouldn't expect to be necessary
01:16:32jhMikeSFound it testing feed-through.
01:16:51 Join actionshrimp [0] (
01:16:54jhMikeSThere is in the playback settings
01:17:10amiconnBut if the user has disabled s/pdif out, the transceiver should be set to disabled, leaving the LED in a very dim state
01:17:19amiconnThat's how it works in cvs
01:17:56jhMikeSit's supposed to follow the setting but doesn't quite and throws it off
01:18:39jhMikeSWierd, mine is either on or off, not dim.
01:18:51amiconnI mean for recording
01:18:54Davide-NYCif there is anything specific you want me to test let me know and I'll try to get some time at the studio to do this.
01:19:04amiconnIf you set s/pdif to enabled, it has to be bright
01:19:06jhMikeSEven then.
01:19:17amiconnIf you set it to off it has to be completely off
01:19:50amiconnBut if you select s/pdif as recording source _and_ have disabled s/pdif out, it has to be dim
01:20:17jhMikeSbut after recording something isn't quite right and it stays off when playing
01:20:37jhMikeSI'll give a look
01:21:13jhMikeSDavide-NYC: I don't know. I think I have to put it out there and let the hate messages come :P
01:21:40Davide-NYCthat sounds like a good idea *if* you will have a little free time post commit
01:22:38Davide-NYCDim here
01:22:46jhMikeSDavide-NYC: that's what I plan on. I just don't want to keep updating the bulk part. I'd like to just have small enhancement and fixes to deal with.

01:38:47 Join Paul_the_Nerd [0] (
01:39:08[g2]jhMikeS I'm getting very interested in rockbox
01:39:26[g2]I've spent the last few years on other open source projects
01:40:10jhMikeSYou test test test before committing and hopefully noone will bring up further problems. If they do, you try to fix it and fast if it's serious. If it's bad enought things might get reverted.
01:40:29[g2]I've got some ideas for building rockbox hardware
01:40:42Paul_the_NerdMy friend's H120 is ailing. :(
01:40:45jhMikeS[g2]: That's been on my mind as well
01:41:08[g2]jhMikeS are you one of the devs ?
01:41:14jhMikeSTake a carcass of some other player and have the boards made somewhere
01:41:25jhMikeS[g2]: I suppose I am :)
01:41:54[g2]how long have you been with the project ?
01:42:35[g2]btw I think there's a much better strategy than a hw re-hash
01:42:37jhMikeSUmmm...July this year. That's the first time I even looked at the source in any detail and I presented a patch for the x5
01:43:40[g2]well I"m settting some automated regression testing for some other stuf (XScale based) hw
01:44:06jhMikeShw re-hash? Was thinking about new hardware hidden in an old player case.
01:44:22jhMikeSjust so it looks commercial :)
01:45:12[g2]jhMikeS you're thinking about 1-offs right ?
01:45:16Paul_the_Nerd[g2]: Were you thinking something in the flash-type line, using say CF for storage as is often popular, or going the HD based route?
01:45:56jhMikeS[g2]: a) sounds interesting b) yes, one-offs
01:46:00[g2]Paul_the_Nerd I've got 2 phased strategy in mind
01:46:14jhMikeSwere you thinking about production players with rb as the native os?
01:46:24[g2]1) do an accessory product that generates enough revenue to build a full out player
01:46:31[g2]2) build the full out player
01:46:49Paul_the_NerdWhat kind of accessory product would be suitable here though?
01:46:59 Join RogerBacon [0] (
01:46:59scorche3) load rockbox as the os =)
01:47:13[g2]scorche that comes in 2
01:47:27*scorche shrugs
01:47:39[g2]I'm looking to develop sustainable open source models
01:48:05scorchethere has been a couple people recently that have wanted to create open hardware devices and load rockbox on it as the firmware
01:48:18[g2]it'd be an open hw project and I'd be looking to funnel funds back to the devs
01:48:49[g2]long-term I've got my eye on kicking apple/cisco a**
01:49:20jhMikeSyes...could use some extra cash :)
01:50:14Paul_the_NerdTo really kick Apple's ass, you still have to come up with some way to break/fight the iTunes/iPod bond.
01:50:22jhMikeSweird, that ideas been bumping around in my head too.
01:50:44jhMikeSyou can't fight iPod/iTunes!
01:50:52jhMikeSIt's the default choice
01:50:57[g2]<fantasy on>
01:51:04Paul_the_NerdThough, an MP3 player with hardware designed around Rockbox could *very* definitely win in the "High End" for sound quality and functionality if you aimed for there.
01:51:19scorchealso, a big reason that people buy ipods is because of the image and the fact that there are so many accessories for them
01:51:30[g2]IP TV content is gonna end run the cable companies/ satellite companies
01:51:58Paul_the_Nerdscorche: Which is why you see the Sansa/Rhapsody with an already growing accessory lineup.
01:52:07jhMikeSUnless they buy everything out (sorry if I sound jaded)
01:52:09scorchebut amongst the tech community, what Paul_the_Nerd said would be very useful and appreciated
01:52:14scorchePaul_the_Nerd: of course
01:52:19[g2]the music industry will fragment in 5 years after the video content delivery having fully paved the way
01:52:26[g2]</fantasy on>
01:52:44Paul_the_NerdAs it is, Rockbox is most popular among two crowds, I think: Tapers, and the blind.
01:53:18jhMikeSTapers are gonna have my nuts tonight or tommorrow *LOL*
01:53:22scorcheand those who are tech-aware and cannot stand the ipods
01:53:40scorchealso, those with older devices
01:54:05Paul_the_NerdBut those aren't people *seeking* Rockbox, really
01:54:17[g2]so re-accessories.... The accessory I'm thinking about would start off being a universal accessory with plug-ins for different hw
01:54:19Paul_the_NerdOften those are just people who find it.
01:54:50[g2]one universal rockbox dock to rule-them-all
01:54:58jhMikeSI just found rb by accident and was taken in immediately...
01:55:07[g2]with plug-in modules for each major player
01:55:18[g2]snap one in, snap one out
01:55:38[g2]player upgrade, just get an additional plug in module
01:55:48Paul_the_NerdLike the Apple dock, but more versatile.
01:55:58[g2]Paul_the_Nerd yeah exactly
01:56:16*obo would love a dock that wired up everything possible in an ipod connector...

01:57:38jhMikeSCan we play audio out a USB port on a player that normally lacks a digital output?
01:58:04[g2]scorche like rockbox doesn't already know the insides of most of the players ?

01:59:17Paul_the_NerdHostile: Yes, browse fonts and pick a larger one
01:59:18[g2]Paul_the_Nerd depends on what you are trying to accomplish

02:00:53Hostileapparently, not, sorry for my stupid questions
02:01:02Paul_the_NerdjhMikeS: It depends on the player
02:01:16jhMikeSwas thinking for something like x5
02:01:19Paul_the_NerdjhMikeS: In theory, any of the players that have USB hosting have a chance of being able to do it depending on what the controller itself is capable of.
02:01:27Hostilewhere on the website do I download the font pack?
02:01:33Paul_the_NerdHostile: Daily builds page
02:02:00HostilePaul_the_Nerd: thanks
02:03:20amiconnjhMikeS: With usb host capabilities it should be possible to connect an usb sound card or something that contains one

02:34:13[g2]jhMikeS I think there's tons of flexibility there
02:34:19jhMikeSthe USBOTG chip has to be RE'd yet on the software level anyway. The lack USBOTG for x5 is the only reason I've ever used the OF since putting rockbox on it.
02:34:57Paul_the_NerdThat and Video are the most cited reasons for OF use on the H300 as well

02:36:14Paul_the_NerdRockbox is Rockbox, whatever was there before is "OF"
02:36:30[g2]OF and RF :)
02:36:42[g2]OF is dead, long live RF
02:36:56[g2]Rockbox Firmware
02:37:36Paul_the_NerdThough AppleOS sometimes gets a unique identifier since it somehow gets brought up a lot
02:37:36jhMikeSIt feels more soft and cuddly than firmware
02:38:41jhMikeSpoofy-ware the clouds and butter :P
02:39:01[g2]my understanding is OF is rarely replaced

03:03:27Paul_the_Nerd[g2]: There's a very *very* brief summary at the end of this page, not really technical:
03:03:48[g2]Paul_the_Nerd thx
03:07:29HostileI downloaded the Green iPod 5g theme, in the screenshot it has the nowplaying screen themed and the menu themed, but on mine the theme is only applied to the Now playing, how can I theme my menus?
03:08:09pfaultI think my h10 is screwed
03:08:13pfaulttime for an upgrade
03:09:48Paul_the_NerdHostile: The "iPod Green5g" theme requires an unofficial build, which we don't provide support for. That being said, you are selecting it from "Browse Themes" and the backdrop for the menu is in the proper backdrops folder?
03:09:55 Join wehn [0] (
03:10:16HostilePaul_the_Nerd: correct, and I do have the unofficial build, so thats not the issue
03:10:44pfaulthow well does the rockbox run on the nano
03:11:11Paul_the_NerdHostile: Well, the unofficial build may have problems. As i said, we don't support them, they aren't ours. Have you tried setting the backdrop manually?
03:11:22Paul_the_Nerdpfault: Similarly to the H10
03:11:26HostilePaul_the_Nerd: nope, How would I set it manually?
03:11:28pfaultok dokie
03:11:39pfaultsame hardware? almost
03:11:43Paul_the_NerdHostile: Browse to the file, open the context menu, and choose to set it as backdrop
03:11:44pfaultI assume it's ARM based as well
03:11:52HostilePaul_the_Nerd: k
03:11:53Paul_the_Nerdpfault: Similar hardware. Same series of processors even.
03:11:58pfaultoh nice
03:12:04pfaultwell I have extended warranty on my h10
03:12:08pfaultand they no longer carry them
03:12:14pfaultso I am probably going to go with a nano
03:12:36scorchewell, doubt they still have the 1st gens
03:12:42scorchebut you can see
03:12:53Paul_the_NerdAnd the 2nd Gen Nano doesn't have *any* Rockbox yet.
03:12:53pfaulthow many generations did they make
03:13:11pfaultwould I be better off with an ipod mini if I can find one
03:13:35scorcheI would much rather have a 1st gen nano than a mini
03:13:36pfaultor are there many generations of those as well
03:13:40scorchebut that is just me
03:13:49scorcheif you get a mini, try to get a 2nd gen
03:13:50pfaultis there any way of telling what generation it is from the box
03:14:02pfaultI really would like some rockbox compatible hardware
03:14:03scorchenanos: yes
03:14:09scorcheminis: dont think so
03:14:45scorcheyou can see if it is a second gen or a first gen if you look at the back of the actual device
03:15:22Paul_the_NerdFor minis
03:15:29Paul_the_NerdActually you can tell on the face either.
03:15:42Paul_the_NerdIf the labels on the scrollwheel match the color of the aluminum, or not.
03:16:05scorchealso, second gen minis have a label on the back of them that says the space of the micro drive
03:16:20Paul_the_NerdNanos look distinctly different between the two generations
03:16:38scorcheand come in different packaging
03:17:19Paul_the_NerdNot to mention, they only come in black and white, and don't go over 4gb, so that alone covers it. :) The only black 2G Nanos are the highest capacity ones, and I don't believe there are white ones.
03:17:23pfaultif worst comes to worst i'll just get the ipod photo
03:18:20scorchei would try to find a plain old 5g before going to a photo
03:18:46 Quit pagefault (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
03:18:51scorchethere are still issues with the 4g grayscale and photo
03:18:54pfaultisn't there a 5.5g now or something that doesn't work
03:19:09pfaultoh wonderful
03:19:12pfaultso it's like roulette
03:19:19scorcheas i said...try to get a 5.0g if it comes down to that
03:19:22Paul_the_NerdWell the 5.5G isn't a photo, it's a video.
03:19:33pfaultso the 5g is just a normal ipod with colour
03:19:36pfaultno video
03:19:40Paul_the_Nerdscorche: Don't for get the "5G"s that are actually "5.5G"
03:19:48Paul_the_NerdThe 5G and 5.5G are both Video
03:20:04scorchePaul_the_Nerd: yeah...i was getting to that =)
03:21:04pfaultI wish it was like linksys routers
03:21:08pfaultwhere they put the revision on the box
03:21:41scorchewell, if the serial is on the box, you7 can check by that
03:21:42HostilePaul_the_Nerd: when I click a theme, is it loading the .cfg file for it?
03:21:43Paul_the_NerdWRT-54G Revision 2. :)
03:21:48Paul_the_NerdHostile: Yes.
03:21:50pfaultI have the 1.1
03:22:13scorchebut as Paul_the_Nerd said, the regular 5Gs have a firmware revision that makes them act as 5.5s
03:22:15HostilePaul_the_Nerd: im looking at the cfg for this theme, it has the backdrop, font, and all that set, yet the only thing it loads is the wps
03:22:23scorcheor at least as he referred to
03:22:37Paul_the_Nerdscorche: Some of the ones with 5G serial numbers even have the 2048-sized sector issue
03:22:51pfaultso is there any progress to getting the 5.5's working
03:23:05scorchePaul_the_Nerd: i grouped it into one line to make things simpler to understand
03:23:06Paul_the_NerdHostile: Did you try manually changing the backdrop as I suggested?
03:23:38Paul_the_Nerdscorche: The firmware revision isn't the problem though. A 5G upgraded to the firmware doesn't develop the problem, even when restored, only a new-from-store 5G running that firmware *might* have the problem
03:23:54Paul_the_Nerdpfault: There is progress, but it's not done yet. There are things that don't seem to work for no apparent reason yet
03:24:09scorcheyeah...i grouped it into a semi-accurate blanket term i guess then
03:24:09pfaultwell if I am lucky they have a h10 already
03:24:15pfaultand I can just swap it
03:24:24pfaultI think I saw 1 in the case when I was there last week
03:24:39HostilePaul_the_Nerd: yeah, it works, I would think it would do more than just set a backdrop, because if you look at the theme here: notice in the menu that the menu is spaced under the titlebar, with just the backdrop set the menu is all the way against the top
03:25:30Paul_the_NerdHostile: That is a function of the unofficial build, and I could care less about it. If you need help with features that aren't part of the official Rockbox, you should communicate with the author of the unofficial build.

06:53:04andrewmelI have had a good look but am having probelems finding sounds as signed shorts. I have seen some on the space invaders rock in the patches, but none of them are the "ding" sound I am looking for, any ideas?

07:11:15JdGordonmidkay: i got your rebuffering idea working, and its great, except the disk doesnt spin very often in regular usage.. so there isnt heaps of benifit, but if you dont use dircache i think it would add heaps
07:11:43midkayJdGordon: that's cool - actually i just checked your last comment half an hour ago or so.
07:12:09midkayJdGordon: yeah, i don't expect huge improvements, but it's useful for whenever you might happen to (browsing around, launching plugins, etc).
07:13:07JdGordonyeah, ive got it queing up a rebuffer if it gets under 75% full... but the rebuffer isnt garenteed to happen, because it does depend on disk usage
07:13:16 Quit daurnimator (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
07:13:37JdGordonits on fs if u wanna check it out
07:13:42midkayright - not a major battery-life improvement, but just a kind of supplement for frequent browsers.
07:13:50JdGordonyeah, exactly
07:13:52midkayi don't have a compiler even right now, sorry..
07:14:36 Join daurnimator [0] (i=quae@unaffiliated/daurnimator)
07:17:10midkayone thing you might wanna do is add some option for it, btw.. choices like "Rebuffer on Disk Spinup" -> "Off", "Only Played Tracks", "All Played Buffer" (need to come up with a better name) and like.. "All Played Buffer When Buffer Below [x]%" where x = like 50, 25, ..
07:17:46JdGordonmeh, that just complicates it...
07:19:15midkaywell, all have their own benefits and disadvantages for people who play in different ways. off if you like to skip back a lot, only played tracks if you never go back a track but maybe skip around in the current one, all played buffer if you never rewind or skip back, and all played buffer on x% if you go by the idea of "it's really low, it'll be rebuffered anyways in just a moment".
07:20:34midkaymaybe all aren't crucial, but it'd be very useful. Off/Only Tracks Played/All When Below 25%/All When Below 50%/All sound like good option names
07:20:54midkayi can code that up in the not-TOO-distant future if that's unappealing to you.
07:21:06JdGordonif the buffer has the next 5 tracks in the buffer, can you skip forward 3 and then back 2 and the buffer will still be usable?
07:21:20midkayyes, as it currently is.
07:21:26midkayyou can skip around anywhere in the buffer.
07:21:28JdGordonoh, ok
07:22:10JdGordonanyway, this is completly useless unless something gets the disk spinning, which is why i say the options are really needed
07:22:22midkayso each option is useful for people who like to either backtrack, rewind, have the option to, or just listen straightforward - each seperately.
07:22:24 Part yipe ("requested by Seveas")
07:22:31JdGordonthe only time the buffer actually forces a rebuffer if it gets down to really low
07:22:46midkayyou said 75% right? that sounds pretty high to me.
07:23:55JdGordonyeah, 75%.. i dunno, i was using this build for about 15min before and i doubt it rebuffered once because of this
07:24:07JdGordonbecause i didnt browse or skip at all
07:24:40midkayyeah, it's just a side-effect. people who don't browse or use plugins won't see any benefit whatsoever.
07:25:34midkaythis is merely a bonus for anybody who is a browser or a plugin-er (?.. :) - and for the people who are, being able to tell Rockbox their listening habits out of five choices would be nice to have it work the way they want it to.
07:26:04JdGordonyeah, i guess we'll have to see what the swedes think :
07:26:12midkaye.g. we shouldn't assume that they never wanna skip back a track or even rewind, but if they never do skip back or rewind frequently enough to warrant keeping it in buffer, might as well fill it off completely whenever possible.
07:26:32 Quit vertic23 (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
07:26:45midkayyeah :) if they're cool with it, coding up an option for it won't be hard and it'd be very cool to see in cvs. i've never seen the feature elsewhere and i'm betting some people would like it.

10:38:14hcsclearly his full name is Mr H, like Mister T
10:38:31scorchei dont know could be because dan_a is making the actual patches and MrH is only guiding and helping (from what i hear)

10:40:51 Part hcs
10:41:42amiconndan_a: Iirc the Sansa flash uses SD protocol, but a proprietary extension for supporting >4GB (instead of the newer standard)?
10:42:48dan_aamiconn: That is correct. If you need to access above 4Gb, you need to do some kind of bank switch.
10:43:04*amiconn wonders how much of the functionality is shared between Sansa flash and Ondio MMC
10:43:13amiconnYes, that's what I mean
10:43:28amiconnMaybe it's because there are 2 flash chips in the >4GB models?
10:44:40dan_aPossibly, or possibly the SD-flash bridge was designed before the standard was finished. I don't know yet.
10:45:24dan_aThere isn't much shared between the Sansa and the Ondio, but now I've got it working I'm going to re-write the Sansa driver to be as similar as possible to the Ondio one.

12:32:39webguest59well oddly enough i went back to oct 25 build and it still doesn't work. I'm starting to suspect that the wps is indeed the problem... although it has no peakmeters
12:33:00ghostis it complicated to install rockbox with boot loader without rix? just so i could try that

12:33:40webguest59yes I did

12:34:21JdGordonKasperle: well.. depends if you want the toolchain to be installed for the system or just the user... i like system..
12:34:35webguest59still the gaps only happen when i enable the equalizer!
12:34:38n1sdarn didn't have make installed....
12:35:20Paul_the_Nerdwebguest59: The equalizer is very cpu intensive...
12:35:42Paul_the_NerdThat's why we actually recommend disabling it in several of the FAQs if you're getting gaps/skipping.
12:36:20webguest59well, I stuck my ear to the player and noticed this: the sound plays and the disk spins. then the disk stops for a while and the sound plays normally. then a gap occurs and the disk starts spinning again..
12:36:34webguest59so i guess it has to do with the cpu
12:36:53n1syes disk reading is pretty heavy for the cpu
12:37:20Paul_the_NerdThe disk should only spin once every several minutes, at the most...
12:37:42webguest59really? well in this case it spins once every few seconds!
12:37:49KasperleJdGordon: true, it's not too bad with the toolchain, because it puts everything into a single arm-elf directory, so it's easy to "deinstall" it
12:37:51Paul_the_NerdAre you sure the disk is spinning.

12:41:26webguest59no the bottom bar does never get full during a pause

12:53:34webguest59um.. well..
12:53:55webguest59sorry to disappoint you but it doesn't work..
12:53:56JdGordonmake sure u reboot if u went into usb while it was on

12:55:36webguest59still doesn't work.. guess i'll have to forget about eq on my model!
12:55:50JdGordoncan u go back intot he aduio thread screen
12:55:56JdGordondoes the bottom bar fill up more often?
12:56:03webguest59eq on or off?
12:56:55Paul_the_Nerdwebguest59: If you do, it's just a "for now" thing. The H10 has the same problems as the iPod in regard to EQ, and the problem can still be solved eventually either way.

12:59:56webguest59have you located what the problem might be?
13:00:13JdGordonus wantingg too much from the cpu
13:00:42webguest59well it's strange because the original firmware had eq and srs too
13:00:51Paul_the_NerdThe original firmware could use the coprocessor
13:00:59Bagderand everything else
13:01:07webguest59rockbox can't?
13:01:07Bagdersince they have the docs
13:01:19webguest59oh.. that's bad
13:01:21JdGordonrockbox cant.. yet...
13:01:31Bagderwebguest59: the PP chips are complicated beasts and totally undocumented for us
13:01:45webguest59wow, guess what will happen when it will
13:02:52webguest59how come are the pp chips undocumented? i thought that each chip has it's documentations, given by the company that makes it
13:03:01Bagderthey don't reveal the docs
13:03:08SoulDeaDwebguest59 i didnt read the conversation, whats the problem, pauses when playing?
13:03:33webguest59pauses when playing and the equalizer is on
13:03:39Paul_the_NerdPortalPlayer never even responded when I attempted to contact them regarding documentation. Not even a polite refusal.
13:03:41Bagderwebguest59: the soc companies these days seem to be less and less likely to show docs to people without NDAs being signed first
13:03:54merbananBagder: is the bootloader in the PP based players still mapped in memory after boot ? ( with TEA keys and all)
13:03:59SoulDeaDand when the eq is off everything is allrighjt?
13:04:01Bagdermerbanan: yes
13:04:17SoulDeaDwhats the player
13:04:24Bagdermerbanan: at 0x10600000 according to MrH
13:04:29webguest59an H10 20GB iriver
13:04:46Bagderon the sansa, that is
13:04:53SoulDeaDdoes the iriver have cpu frequency control and does rockbox control it?
13:05:07BagderSoulDeaD: yes and yes
13:05:39SoulDeaDBagder could the problem be incorrect behavior of the freq kontrol?
13:05:46merbananBagder: handy :) so then it should be quite possible to actually boot the original MI4 image from within rockbox
13:05:49SoulDeaDsorry for my bad english
13:05:53BagderSoulDeaD: what problem?
13:05:59JdGordonwebguest59: if you dont care about battery life there is another possible fix
13:06:07SoulDeaDwebguest59s problem
13:06:14SoulDeaDpauses when playing and eq is on
13:06:40Bagdermerbanan: yes, but I doubt we'll do it like that since it seems awkward to spare the ram area like that
13:06:40webguest59well, i do care about battery life. i just want to have a normal mp3 player like everyone else
13:07:04BagderSoulDeaD: no, the reason is not likely to be cpu freq related I'd say
13:07:32SoulDeaDi just tried to suggest something :)
13:07:36merbananBagder: well you only need to save away the keys before using the ram
13:07:44Bagdermerbanan: ah, right
13:08:13Bagdermerbanan: but I think just doing a prescan once for the key is fine enough
13:08:47webguest59hm, so i guess i'll wait for later builds till i can use the eq, right?

13:49:49Kasperlewhy does it live in such an odd path btw?

13:54:42Kasperlemaybe the sets CC? try editing it, and setting CC to gcc
13:55:21blue_lizardis such an timer or counter easily accesible in rockbox? doesn't complain about CC, that would be one of the configure scripts or something

15:47:21DeefLike.. backdrops. Things that make it alot more intuitive about where you are and how to move around
15:47:30lex_rockbox just needs a disk mode and a sleep mode to ipods and it's good
15:47:41*Paul_the_Nerd wonders what backdrops have to do with intuitive controls.
15:47:41DeefIsn't it just stuck with 1 backdrop and 1 WPS wallpaper?
15:47:43lex_and probably the broadcom initialized
15:47:50DeefAlot Paul
15:47:57amiconnHaha, "just" a disk mode
15:48:17Paul_the_NerdDeef: Care to actually explain?
15:48:38DeefDepends on how you are preparing yourself to receive it
15:48:39lex_amiconn: just just
15:48:42DeefYou seem pretty cynical
15:49:04Soaplex_ - and battery life. and second core working. and the serial interface would be a bonus.
15:49:07DeefIf you only feel cynical I will only get a bad response
15:49:07blue_lizardnow thats a reason to not explain something
15:49:29DeefIf you are interested though, its cool
15:49:29lex_Soap: yep yep

15:49:37blue_lizardDeef: and you are afraid of bad responses?
15:49:38Paul_the_NerdDeef: I just don't see how backdrops and controls are related. Which is why I've asked you to explain.
15:49:53DeefNot afraid, just not interested
15:49:56Paul_the_NerdI'm assuming you're suggesting they be used to provide some sort of visual feedback as to where the user is.
15:50:11Paul_the_NerdBut that doesn't actually tell a user how to control anything.

15:50:56DeefThat's like saying a street sign doesn't tell you how to get to the city

15:52:10Paul_the_NerdMost users tend to already know where they are, and just don't know how to get anywhere else.
15:52:29Paul_the_NerdKnowing where you are doesn't tell you what buttons to press, or what menu you can find an object in.
15:52:35DeefThat's very generalised

15:52:52DeefNor does a street sign give you directions
15:53:05amiconnlex_: Things needed for disk mode (1) find out how the PP usb interface is accessed and work (very difficult since there are no docs available) (2) write a complete usb stack (device side), implementing the mass storage class
15:53:10DeefIntuition isn't about explicit
15:53:11Paul_the_NerdIf I tell you "You are in the city of Fredericksville. Get to the Longtown Cafe" can you, without further information?
15:53:33lex_amiconn: i know
15:53:36Paul_the_NerdIf a user sees they're in the main menu, what more information will a backdrop give them?
15:53:39lex_amiconn: but it still just needs the disk mode ;)
15:54:18Paul_the_NerdI'm curious specifically how you see backdrops being integrated into the navigation.
15:54:40DeefI think you're still more cynical than curious
15:54:42 Quit FireFly_ (Client Quit)
15:54:53DeefImagine different branches of navigation simply looking distinguishable
15:55:04DeefJust at a glance
15:55:08Paul_the_NerdWhat branches do you divide the navigation into?
15:55:15lex_hey, a bit offtopic, but i have got a noob mp3-player, which is like the random mp3-players, like s1, but i can't figure out where the firmware lies in there
15:55:23lex_so does anyone know how to get it out or so? :o
15:55:23DeefFor example, if I'm looking at my list of playlists..
15:55:32lex_there is only 1 partition, and it's the fat-partitio
15:55:38DeefAm I in the playlist catalogue or the file browser?
15:55:50Soapsame thing
15:55:57Paul_the_NerdDeef: I don't know, what button did you press to get there?
15:56:06Paul_the_NerdDeef: It sounds like you're assuming the user won't pay attention to what they're doing.
15:56:26DeefIntuition isn't about explicit
15:56:48Paul_the_NerdSo, how will the user know it's the playlist catalogue from a background?
15:56:52Paul_the_NerdAre you planning on writing the words on it?
15:57:07Paul_the_NerdWhy not make use of the existing system for displaying the filetree path to show the menu path as well?
15:57:15DeefSimply different backgrounds will be easy to remember next time
15:57:19Paul_the_NerdThat gives the user a much clearer idea of where they are.
15:58:10DeefIf the entire file browser has shades of blue in the background, while the playlist catalogue doesn't, it will be beyond obvious
15:58:21DeefThey will just feel when they are in the place they think they are
15:58:39DeefMenu path is not intuitive enough
15:58:49Paul_the_NerdYes, because it actually *says* where they are.
15:58:49DeefWords are too messy
15:59:04Paul_the_NerdIf the header on the screen says "Playlist Catalogue" they'll know even if they don't know what the backdrops mean
15:59:11Paul_the_NerdWhat happens when they load a theme that doesn't make use of it?
15:59:29Paul_the_NerdWhy not keep it simple?
15:59:44DeefYou're still being cynical. I'm not arguing that I have the best idea possible, nor trying to support everything anyone can do to break my idea
15:59:56DeefI'm saying it would be a good thing
16:00:23Paul_the_NerdIt doesn't actually tell the user anything other than "you're in a different screen" though.
16:00:27DeefA header with the title would be good, but not more intuitive than graphics
16:00:45 Join FireFly_ [0] (
16:01:01Paul_the_NerdYou're misusing intuitive.
16:01:12Paul_the_NerdIntuitive means that it can be known without observation or reasoning
16:01:15DeefNo, I think you're confusing it
16:01:17Deefwith "clear"
16:01:25Paul_the_NerdIntuitive means that it can be known without observation or reasoning.
16:01:41Paul_the_NerdBy your own definition the user must observe that the backdrop is different in that screen, and reason that said difference is to distinguish it.
16:01:58Deefnow you're misusing observation
16:02:14DeefThat's the whole point, different backgrounds wouldn't have to be ...
16:02:19DeefThis is pointless
16:02:27Paul_the_NerdHow did I misuse observation?
16:02:40Paul_the_NerdI agree that backdrops for different screens would be fun.
16:02:47Soaplets not argue semantics.
16:03:26DeefBasically, having different backgrounds that gave an easy feel as to where the user was is not a stroke of genius
16:03:29Paul_the_NerdMy point is simply that claiming it's intuitive is not an argument for this feature, since it very clearly isn't, as it's still something a user has to learn exists.
16:03:30SoapWhat are the arguments against different backdrops for the file tree and the menu? The extra lines of code? The fact no one has steped up to do it yet? Something else?
16:04:02DeefI think Paul just said it
16:04:06DeefIn his cynical way
16:04:15DeefGraphics are more intuitive than text...
16:04:16Soapno need to call names either.
16:04:32DeefHis way is cynical
16:04:37Paul_the_NerdSoap: The fact that each extra backdrop image is a significantly sized chunk of audio buffer, possibly as much as 153k/per, that users don't get if the feature is included
16:04:38DeefHe is not showing me respect either you know
16:04:41SoapLet us stop using the word intuitive until we look it up, and stop using cynical as an insult.
16:04:43Paul_the_NerdBecause Rockbox does not have dynamic allocation.
16:05:11Paul_the_NerdSoap: I did look it up. I don't support my semantic arguments without a direct quote from a dictionary.
16:05:37Paul_the_NerdDeef: How is my being critical of your idea in any way disrespectful of you?
16:06:01DeefYour tone
16:06:14DeefBefore we conversed at all, your first address to me
16:06:16Paul_the_NerdDeef: You and your idea are separate things, and just because I think your idea is not right for Rockbox (and actually the technical reasons are the main thing against it, as I said, I think it would be fun, so I was kinda hoping for a sound argument in favour) does not mean I dislike you.
16:06:27SoapI see no disrespect from Paul_the_Nerd, Deef, only a high threshold you must cross, as this has been discussed many times, and you're kinda playing catch-up with the ideas previously discussed.
16:06:27DeefYour tone suggested otherwise
16:06:47SoapThere is no tone in text!
16:06:51DeefI disagree
16:06:53Paul_the_NerdDeef: If you can hear me, I'm mightily impressed, because there was nothing but text coming from my end.
16:06:57Deefand disagree again
16:07:12Paul_the_NerdAnd my first statement was of wondering what images have to do with controls.
16:07:26DeefAnd I'm not hugely excited about a conversation that requires me to argue every single thing I say
16:07:33Paul_the_NerdI can't help how you choose to interpret my statements.
16:07:44DeefIf you're only going to let me stand on the back foot, I won't get anywhere
16:07:54Paul_the_NerdDeef: If you want to suggest a feature that will hurt the battery life of users in a significant way, you will have to defend it mightily
16:08:06Paul_the_NerdAt 153k *per* screen that gets a unique backdrop, your request is in no way small.
16:08:29DeefBut this is not the points you first addressed me with
16:08:40Paul_the_NerdAnd if you read my above statement you'll see why.
16:08:48DeefThere are many above statements
16:08:53Paul_the_NerdI addressed with questions intended to get you to explain the parts of your suggestion I did not see.
16:09:01Paul_the_NerdI was honestly curious what merits your idea had.
16:09:19Paul_the_NerdBecause to me, I could see it as fun, and something I find might be nice to have, but not useful enough by any stretch to warrant what is in fact a *very* large cost.
16:09:24DeefBackdrops add to intuitive feel
16:09:30DeefVery obvious merit
16:09:46Paul_the_NerdA very small merit, even assuming proper use of the word.
16:09:56DeefI think a huge merit
16:10:03Paul_the_NerdYou're wrong though.
16:10:10Paul_the_NerdI know this sound callous

16:11:18Paul_the_NerdWhich means that this feature, whether used or not, will decrease the battery life of every single Rockbox user on a color screen target by a measurable amount.
16:12:15Paul_the_NerdFor the benefit of changing the "feel" of the software, but not adding actual functionality beyond a simple niceness of distinct screens, screens that can be distinguished in much cheaper ways.
16:12:21Paul_the_NerdEnd explanation.
16:12:31DeefYou haven't said why you think backdrops to not create a more intuitive feel
16:12:46DeefI never mentioned technical limitations
16:12:52DeefYou asked why it would be more intuitive
16:13:20Paul_the_NerdActually, I never received an explanation as to how it *is* intuitive.
16:13:31DeefFair enough
16:13:51DeefBut that doesn't mean tech specs are on topic
16:13:51Paul_the_NerdLet alone your definition of the word, since it seems to disagree with that in the dictionary, and I can't be expected to know how you personally define it.
16:14:05Paul_the_NerdSo you're saying that the technical argument is irrelevant?
16:14:27DeefTo the question you intially asked, yes. The question I am saying you were being cynical about, yes
16:14:35Paul_the_NerdThe discussion is "Is the idea of enough value to be included" which means a cost vs value analysis of said idea.
16:14:44Paul_the_NerdI knew the cost.
16:14:46Paul_the_NerdYou did not
16:14:56DeefNo, the discussion is not that
16:15:05Paul_the_NerdI was curious as to your personal perceived value of the idea, since initially for me it was very low, so I inquired as to what gave you basis to value it.
16:15:05DeefIt wasn't that until you took it there
16:15:30Paul_the_NerdWhat you're missing is *why* I asked the questions I did, and are judging the discussion based solely on which questions I asked.
16:15:57DeefBut I'm not responding to your reasons for asking questions
16:16:02DeefI'm responding to your questions
16:16:19DeefI'm discussing why I think it would make a more intuitive feel
16:16:24Paul_the_NerdSo tell me that.
16:16:29DeefI'm not discussing its worth or viability
16:16:39DeefDo you agree?
16:16:52Paul_the_NerdAre you suggesting this idea for inclusion in any way?
16:17:15DeefSimilar to the way I'd consider marrying a girl I'd just met
16:17:26DeefI'm not thinking about that yet
16:17:40DeefI am simply saying "This would be more intuitive, I wish it were so"
16:17:56Paul_the_NerdAlright, explain how it is more intuitive.
16:17:58DeefAnd then responding to your debateable way of asking "Why do you think that"
16:18:05Paul_the_NerdAnd if you aren't using the definition I pasted her, explain what meaning you use for it.
16:18:43Deefpink background for menu branches, blue for browser branches
16:18:59DeefLooking at a screen full of playlist names, I know where I am
16:19:05Deefwithout thinking about it
16:19:10DeefThat's all it is
16:19:23DeefTitles and branch paths for menus would all be excellent too
16:19:39Paul_the_NerdAny list of files, even when spawned from the menu, is actually a sub-browser.

16:30:28Paul_the_NerdDeef: The point is you don't seem to know the proper meaning of the word intuitive. Even with your system, a user has to notice that the screens change, and as well notice that the changes actually align to specific screans, an act that takes reasoning, breaking the definition of "Intuitive"

16:33:40Paul_the_NerdDeef: Knowing that you're in the menu system still tells you very little, and whether it makes it easier or not, does not make it more *intuitive*
16:33:53Paul_the_NerdDeef: Please, stop and define intuitive if you insist upon using the word here.
16:34:07DeefYou don't think about it
16:34:17Paul_the_NerdI've given you a definition out of a dictionary, and every time you use the word it's clear that your use is contrary to the definition.

16:53:49DeefI think out of all the bugs, this is what makes me most undecided about using it
16:54:46Paul_the_NerdWhat about the navigation actually causes you problems?
16:54:46SoapI don't think you will find yourself using the main menu much after a couple of weeks.

16:54:59*amiconn thinks that rockbox navigation is quite intuitive, _especially_ compared to stock iriver firmware
16:55:03 Quit rconan ("Leaving")
16:55:33amiconnNot styled to death, but functional
16:57:11Paul_the_NerdThe problem with "intuitive" is that it differs from person to person. Everything did what I expected it to do, pretty much, so it was mostly intuitive for me.
16:58:00Paul_the_NerdBut if Deef's having actual problems with the navigation, I'm curious exactly where they're happening.
16:58:24DeefMainly with playlists I think
16:58:32DeefI've been messing with them all week
16:58:32amiconnjhMikeS: When we can get away with the same transfer timing as on H300, lcd updates with dma would be 6% slower on X5 than the corresponding values on H300
16:58:56DeefI can never tell what I have to press to get back to the WPS
16:59:11Deefor to view the playlist, or something around that area
17:00:27DeefHold Navi, playlist, view current playlist = tap <−− to reach WPS
17:01:25DeefPress A-B, playlist options, view current player != tap <- to reach WPS
17:01:47 Quit freqmod ("Konversation terminated!")
17:01:48DeefI look at that screen and not know to do
17:02:05Paul_the_NerdWell that would actually qualify as a bug, I think.
17:02:43SoulDeaDi press play to return to wps...
17:02:47DeefWell, the latter cycles you back through the menu
17:03:16DeefSoulDead.. in both examples above, Play does not return to WPS

17:03:36SoulDeaDsorry, i didnt read them, just a sec
17:04:10DeefIn the second example, tapping left simply cycles you back through the menu

17:10:42DeefI see that a list of files has icons, and a filepath up the top, while a playlist of those same files has numbers and no file path
17:11:18DeefThat causes me grief, I guess I feel the difference is too small
17:11:30Paul_the_NerdBecause a playlist is a list of files... the numbers show you where in the playlist they are. You aren't in a filetree any more, you're viewing the playlist...
17:11:54amiconnYou can enable the playlist option to display full paths
17:12:12DeefI'm saying that I realise they are different
17:12:20DeefBut that I never notice the difference
17:12:35Paul_the_NerdWell it sounded like the complaint was that they aren't the same...
17:12:49DeefSorry heh
17:12:51Paul_the_NerdOr is it that there's not enough difference visible?
17:12:54DeefThat they're too the same
17:13:17Paul_the_NerdWhat should probably be up top is the filename of the playlist. "Blah.m3u" or something.

17:14:08amiconnA fat icon takes away display space
17:14:19Paul_the_NerdI think the fact that numbered lists are never used in filetree is a strong clue. But that's a matter of preference.
17:14:46Paul_the_NerdThough I guess you could end up with one if you disabled icons and had numbered filenames...
17:14:55DeefIts more that I don't read the text at all

17:35:31amiconnjhMikeS: There's a pitfall with shuffling global_settings around, btw.
17:35:51amiconnglobal_settings is exported to plugins, so reordering it means an incompatible api change
17:36:16amiconn-> both api version and min api version need to be bumped
17:40:47SoulDeaDi just installed skyeye emulator
17:40:58SoulDeaDi still have not read the documentation
17:41:12jhMikeShmmm, forgot about that. my changes may already make them incompatible then. I didn't add anything to the plugin api but did add add stuff to global_settings that should be sorted.
17:41:12SoulDeaDbut can somebody tell mi could it be useful?
17:43:40jhMikeSrec_format directly replaces rec_quality for SWCODEC but perhaps the encoder settings should just go at the bottom :\
17:44:53amiconnjhMikeS: It's probably not that important (yet). Afaik the only global setting referenced in plugins is the backlight timeout, so as long as that one keeps its position, there shouldn't be a problem

18:05:02Moosmarkun: recording rework
18:05:11amiconnThere is a bug I am observing on ipod mini, but not on iriver or X5: The tranmap is built every time, when it should use a cached version
18:05:37amiconnI would like to know whether this also happens on other little endian targets
18:06:21SoulDeaDhow can i help you?
18:06:58*Moos is wondering if it will see one day how rockboy looks on his X5 :)
18:07:04amiconnJust start doom, and start playing.
18:07:29amiconnWhile it initialises the first time, there is a part in the startup message junk that takes quite a while
18:07:58amiconnIt says: "Please wait: tranmap bulding", then counts down: "Computing: 8", "Computing: 7" etc
18:08:09DeefDoom makes my hands hurt on the h300
18:08:19DeefWho designed such cramped buttons
18:08:29amiconnIt should only do this the first time you start doom, or after removing /games/doom/tranmap.dat
18:08:51amiconnOn my mini it appears everytime
18:08:51SoulDeaDit will take some time becaus i have to copy the files first

18:19:49SoulDeaDit does not
18:20:06SoulDeaDit takes too long time for me to be unnoticed
18:20:42SoulDeaDi use freedoom if its is important
18:20:42amiconnYes it takes quite a while
18:21:18amiconnThe problem isn't new, it has always been like that on my mini since I made doom work on it (by porting the grayscale lib)
18:22:46SoulDeaDthe first time i have started doom i havent noticed this delay but i have started it several times and i would have been noticed it, so i think the problem is somewhere in you port
18:25:08amiconnHuh? Now the problem is gone, after deleting tranmap.dat to force a clean rebuild...
18:25:55amiconnHaha, I know why...
18:26:11amiconnThere _is_ a bug in the tranmap cache code
18:26:44amiconnIf there is no tranmap it gets rebuilt cleanly, but if there is one that's faulty, it gets recalculated but saving doesn't work,
18:26:59amiconnbecause it's opened with O_RDONLY !

20:24:42Davide-NYCPajama-B: the extra features only apply to the us vs. korean firmware for the H3x0 series
20:25:01Davide-NYCI would just use US1.66 for the H120/H140
20:25:22Pajama-BBut i got the 140 from Korea so I wasn't sure if there was a difference
20:25:39Davide-NYCI doubt it.
20:25:41Pajama-Bcuz someone told me that you couldn't use the european firmware on korean irivers
20:25:45n1sDavide-NYC: Not entirely true the h300 eu firmware has a volume cap and limited fm frequency range :-P

20:27:16Davide-NYCIf your preferred language is English and your sighted help does not speak korean, then I would use the US1.66 firmware.

21:03:45tucozso, simply make /bin/sh be a symlink to /bin/bash
21:04:06n1sok, how do I do that, (linux noob) :-)
21:04:42tucozi am not sure of the syntax. on windows at the moment. but someone else here will probably know.
21:05:11tucozi think it is sudo ln -s /bin/sh /bin/bash

21:06:54tucozi mixed up the order
21:08:09tucozhmm. looks like having /bin/sh linked to /bin/dash makes scripts run a lot faster
21:08:21blue_lizardshure it does
21:08:28blue_lizardbut does that really count?
21:08:43tucozno, not as long as it breaks scripts
21:08:53bluebrotheryou could also try to adjust the shebang to point to /bin/bash instead of /bin/sh
21:09:26tucozyes, that is of course a solution
21:09:41SoulDeaDor you could just edit the script....
21:09:52n1sit works, now :-)

21:36:51SoulDeaDsorry for my lack of knowledge but what is shebang?
21:37:10bluebrotherbut how likely is the case bash isn't in /bin?
21:37:40bluebrotherscripts start with a line like "#!/bin/bash". That "#!" is the so-called shebang (sheepgard-bang)
21:37:44SoulDeaDmaybe on non gnu systems?
21:37:54SoulDeaDi understand
21:38:18 Quit funky (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
21:38:39bluebrotherhmm. I'm pretty sure in 99.9% of all cases we can assume bash to be in /bin, while with that dash stuff of ubuntu I think we have quite some cases where /bin/sh isn't bash
21:39:27bluebrotherso if the shebang points to /bin/bash and bash is installed somewhere else the script will fail with an error (and people running systems that have bash somewhere else should be able understanding that error)
21:39:40 Join hannesd [0] (
21:40:03SoulDeaDi think on bsd its not in bin, and there is no bash in comersial systems
21:40:20Kasperlei'd not agree with the 99.9%, but BSD people are normally happy if bash-dependent scripts do not start with #!/bin/sh ;)
21:40:21bluebrotherhmm. How will the script run correctly then?
21:40:24SoulDeaDfor example solaris does not have bash by default
21:40:41Kasperle(on FreeBSD it's in /usr/local/bin/bash, if bash is even installed)
21:41:26SoulDeaDand i think theres a way to override the shebang line
21:41:37SoulDeaDbut not sure...
21:41:41bluebrotherhmm. Would be best if someone with knowledge of dash could have a look at the script and fix it.
21:41:54bluebrotherSoulDeaD, sure, if you prepend the script with the interpreter.
21:42:17bluebrotherlike "/usr/local/bin/bash ./configure"
21:42:41blue_lizardshure but that does not override the subshells

21:42:56bluebrotherhmm, that's a point.
21:42:59SoulDeaDno, i mean a system wide configuration that will override blablabla/bash with the correct location of the interpreter

22:27:27blue_lizardargument 1 is called "string" ans is declared as
22:27:39blue_lizardunsigned char string[30];
22:27:50peturdrop the unsigned
22:28:40blue_lizardlol, now it complains in other lines aboud signedness
22:28:59peturcongrats on messing that up ;)

22:55:54Learamiconn: an early call to talk_init caused the simulator hang on startup.

22:58:56scorchefor the record, you didnt have to
22:59:10scorcheyou could have did a search on the forums for "nethack" and be given the same answer
22:59:35Learamiconn: not "non-english", but rather, any language selected. If global_settings.lang_file contains anything, talk_init is called.
22:59:47viny1true, but on this dialup, it was MUCH faster to simply ask. tnx again
23:00:17scorcheyeah, but i suggest you try that next time first
23:00:35LearThat, in turn, calls audio_stop. On the simulator, the audio thread isn't yet running, so a queue is never emptied, causing audio_stop to hang.
23:00:49scorchepeople appreciate you more when you show a willingness to search and attempt to find an answer yourself first =)
23:00:51LearSuggest something fishy in the SDL thread handling, I think...
