00:26:56pixelmado you know why there are sometimes more spaces than I want in the pdf-manual
00:27:23pixelmadoes it have to do with indentation or something?
00:28:05n1slatex thinks that it is fun to isert spaces sometimes, try using % at the end of lines before the unwanted space
00:28:47pixelmaah thanks... I'll try that
00:29:54n1sfor example see the beginning of system_options.tex (the battery cap. opts)
00:30:04 Quit Criamos (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:31:24n1sbut it can be really tricky combining \opt, \nopt and god knows what into something that always produce the right whitespace...

00:48:40TerinjokesSoap, those errors from yesterday, I can't get a good picture of them (my camera won't focus correctly on them, the camera are more for wider shots...) you want to try to snap them yourself?
00:49:37SoapI was just curious if the error screens changed enough that we would need to take into account the new messages for the manual/wiki.
00:50:29preglowdan_a: hah
00:50:39preglowdan_a: how's the nand driver shaping up?
00:52:00dan_apreglow: It seems to work. It reads and writes on my 2Gb model, I've had one reported problem from someone who had a FAT16 formatted device but he cleared that by reformatting
00:52:18TerinjokesSoap, the old 'sad ipod' is now an Xbox360-ish error. where it used to say 'http;//' it now says 'Use iTunes to restore' in 4 languages
00:52:35Terinjokesand they removed the 'sad ipod'
00:53:12Terinjokesthis seems to be new as of nano firmware 1.3 (though firmwares for other ipods probably got updated as well...)
00:57:36obolike this?
00:57:56Terinjokesyes, yese
00:58:44Terinjokesthat page says 'iPod nano with iPod Software 1.2 or later' but i got the old 'sad ipod' with 1.2

01:02:26amiconnIt's as simple as adding #define HAVE_FAT16SUPPORT to config-e200.h
01:02:53amiconnShould probably also be enabled for the bootloader then
01:04:01dan_aAh. Then I shall do that - probably at the weekend, though, since I'd want to test that it works before committing, and I don't want to reformat my sansa right now.

01:40:29blindfrom what i've read..
01:40:29Terinjokesshrumants, hold 'menu' as you plug in the cable
01:40:33blindsomeone correct me if im wrong.
01:40:42shrimantsoh hold menu while plugging in cable
01:40:46Terinjokesblind, thats to reboot into OF

01:44:30Terinjokesyeah, hold play and it reboots into disk mode
01:44:53Terinjokeson a charging cable, this probably wont work
01:46:10Terinjokesjust leave it on the rockbox menu with the hold switch on

01:59:22jba Ability to browse by track rating and access to ratings via the WPS (in fashion similar to the old tag database). It would also be great if Tag Cache could automatically add externally created ratings stored in the RATING and TRACK_RATING tag/comment fields.

02:08:40Genre9mp3rockbox 4.0 is going to be realeased in 2011 after a feature freeze that goinfg to last about 2 years! :P
02:09:26pixelmano... you can't estimate release dates...
02:10:12*JdGordon doesnt understand the point of releases when there is a new build every day
02:10:41Genre9mp3nobody will stick to a release anyway...
02:10:41JdGordonwith a month of dailies waiting incase the latest is broken
02:11:07TerinjokesjdGordon, SHHH!
02:11:32Genre9mp3but in the end... you have to... release something, don't you?
02:12:29Genre9mp3and releases make sense for new ports (gettinf officially supported)
02:12:32amiconnThere are people who prefer to stick to releases
02:12:48Genre9mp3argh... my f is meesses with my g! :)
02:13:09amiconnEven if the release is outdated, and contains bugs which are fixed in the dailies
02:13:14jbawith a build tree 100 + MB who would keep a month of daily snaphsots of the source tree, and why?
02:13:19JdGordonGenre9mp3: thats just silly.. if its in cvs (doing daily builds) then its as officially supported as a release would b

02:14:06Terinjokeshrm, i got an error on building rockbox
02:14:22Terinjokesyou mean you use something newer then 2.5?
02:15:08jbaif you are like me, you want rockbox to make your mp3 player able to play music properly, then you don't want to be updating everyomnth
02:15:09*Terinjokes is using 0.001-alpha

02:16:00Genre9mp3JdGordon: It's a work in progress... it's always a work in progress but at some point you have to release something "finished"
02:16:01jbaTerinjokes, why don't you have a crack at fixing rockboy?
02:16:11JdGordonI use whatever build was the last one i copied onto my h300 to test.. so usually im working witha broken one :p
02:16:18Terinjokesjba, i don't know what is wrong with it

02:17:00Genre9mp3JdGordon: Why not?
02:17:58amiconnjba: Even if you just want it to play music properly, updating regularly is often helpful in the current state of rockbox for swcodec targets
02:18:29JdGordonOSS is still capitalist in nature.. not communist... this mans that the work being done is for _me_ (not me me, but me the developer or any OSS project).. but the work is free for anyone if they want it.. but at the end of the day, _i'm_ makeing it for _me_ so there is n need for releases bcause _I_ always have the lates versio
02:18:30amiconnEven for the old targets there is the occasional bugfix, sometimes not only a small one.
02:18:40jbai know, actually for me, the gigabeat port isn't even done yet, so I'm tracking cvs. But I was just pointing out that not all rb users want to track a moving development target
02:19:06amiconn2.5 for the Ondio is buggy, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone any more
02:19:20Genre9mp3JdGordon: huh?
02:19:38pixelmamaybe releases would motivate developers work more on fixing bugs to get rid of most of them (or the most important ones at least)...
02:20:12amiconnYeah, but the last feature freeze didn't work that well...
02:20:15Genre9mp3JdGordon: You can always use whatever you want, what's these capitalist in nature things you are talking about?
02:21:05JdGordoncapitalistic in that developers are selfish and doing it for themselves.. not communistic in that they are doig it for the greater good.. or for others...
02:21:05jbaGenre9mp3, he was saying that the main motivating factors behind working on rockbox (as a developer) are to get rockbox working for yourslef, not for everyone else

02:22:30TerinjokesJdGordon, hrm...i wish I new what that meant :)
02:23:12JdGordonTerinjokes: it means the code that draws the display needs to be fixed for the nanos screen size. and no one has doe that yet
02:23:28*Terinjokes looks
02:24:16*JdGordon wonders at what
02:24:49Genre9mp3jba: I agree on that, but making a release doesn't mean that you do it for the users and only... you do it for the project in general
02:24:56JdGordonapps/plugins/rockboy/ somehwere there..
02:24:59JdGordon i dunno
02:25:19TerinjokesJdGordon, i got the code in front of me, trying to find what the problem is
02:25:47jbaGenre9mp3, i'm with you on that one, but i think JdGordon is intimating that most of the devs on rockobx don't do it for the "project in general" first. They do it for themselvs first, which ocasionaly just so happens to benefit the "project in genera;"
02:25:58Terinjokesi wish there were more comments...but w/e
02:26:13JdGordonTerinjokes: i dunnno, thast might no even be the problem anymore...

05:05:49PaulPositionOk... If that 'set_option()' expects an array of type variable as a second arguments (void* variable), it will always give me a warning at compile time (ex. ..passing argument 2 of 'rb->set_option makes pointer from integer without a cast') no matter what it's fed, right?

08:58:14amiconnjhMikeS: If bootloader code uses no single function from a certain object, it doesn't matter for the final result whether this object gets compiled or not

09:06:25*jhMikeS doesn't know if gcc has any intelligent behavior re: opening #included files
09:06:57amiconnIt's especially bad on cygwin, as it increases the number of file open operations

09:16:46*jhMikeS is hoping to add AIFF recording today
09:20:11webguest20jhMikeS: waht is the difference between WAV and AIFF? AIFF is just a container IIRC.
09:21:39jhMikeSwebguest20: It's a better format match for big-endian machines whereas WAV is little-endian
09:23:16jhMikeSshould be very straight forward from what I see about it
09:24:16amiconnHehe, on archos there will be no difference in handling wav and aiff :)
09:24:46amiconnThe pcm codec for the mas can switch endianess
09:25:38jhMikeShow convenient :)
09:25:53webguest20jhMikeS: but the data volume is the same? (if the frequency etc are the same?)
09:26:47jhMikeSit's open to any PCM stuff as WAV which is basically any depth or frequency
09:28:43webguest20So is it possible to put a WAV file into AIFF container?
09:29:12jhMikeSwebguest20: no, I don't believe so
09:31:06webguest20jhMikeS: I asked just out of curiousity.
09:31:55jhMikeSit there already something in the libs for converting 80-bit IEEE floating points to longs? the sample rate is floating point
09:33:00LinusNi believe you can read it as a double and cast it
09:33:18LinusNi don't think you need a math lib for that
09:33:48jhMikeSsounds good. I guess that any handling would have to be in the decoder anyway =)

11:13:01jhMikeSwait, how can you play/pause audio if the disk is inaccessible?
11:13:19amiconnThe disk is accessible. Buttons are not, except Play and Stop
11:13:52amiconnAs it seems you have an active playlist, Play will resume. If you know what format the resumed track is, you can replace the .codec with a stub that tries to RoLo the disk firmware
11:14:01jhMikeSthen you just have it run the plugin when it starts and flash it when you push play :\ the mod should be easy
11:14:19amiconnjhMikeS: The question is what to do *now*

11:14:53jhMikeSah, was thinking he just wanted his player back running for starters
11:15:13Slasherithen i could reflash from codec

13:46:00Slasheriand i also planned writing the reset cookie loader to the crt0 too, but that will take more time to do
13:48:29Slasherior what about this: if loading previously from disk has failed, load from flash and vice versa? i am not really sure which would be the best way to do :)
13:48:37LinusNyou mean that plugging the usb cable makes it boot from disk?
13:49:01Slasheriit would activate first the bootloader usb mode, and then always boot from disk
13:49:09LinusNok, i get it
13:49:17LinusNsounds reasonable
13:49:24LinusNnah, maybe not
13:49:44LinusNwould be a pita for those who only run from flash
13:49:57Slasheriyep, that's true
13:50:21Slasheriand if disk driver would be buggy for any reason, then booting would always fail..
13:50:42Slasherimaybe there should be a way to force booting (either automatically or manually) from both flash and disk?
13:52:01leftrightthe new usb icon is very nice
13:52:08Slasheriindeed :)
13:53:11Slasherihmm, and maybe bootloader should support booting true rom images from flash also.. currently we use only ram images
13:55:33Slasheriwith rom images reset cookie would work nice
13:56:53Slasherimaybe it would be best to allow putting both rom and ram images to the flash in different sections
13:57:15Slasheriand bootloader could have some menu activated using some button to select the boot type
13:57:35Slasherithen rom image would be always used if bootloader completely fails
13:59:22Slasherirom images are harder to update because a separately linked binary is required, but boot time should be even a bit faster
14:00:24amiconnWe already have the dual-link capability in the Makefile
14:00:41amiconnrockbox.bin and rombox.bin, for archos
14:01:21Slasheritrue, should we enable it for iriver also?
14:05:38amiconnGuess so. We'll need to extend for coldfire then

14:37:07rasherI'd recommend CDex
14:37:51dwihnodaurnimator: well, depends on how you extract... I sacrifice speed for more secure ripping.
14:37:53daurnimatorCDex is slow as hell
14:38:44dwihnoI already ripped all my discs, so I only have to rip new ones, so 15-20 minutes per disc is acceptable by my means.
14:39:52daurnimatori used to use dmc
14:39:57daurnimatortakes max 3 mins a disk
14:40:41crwll...and you're screwed if there's a single scratch in a disc
14:40:47crwlland occasionally even if there isn't

14:49:05daurnimatordwihno: but accurip makes sure you have no errors
14:49:17daurnimator - if accurip complains, you use a more secure setting
14:51:23dwihnodaurnimator: personally, I don't like to depend on an external source...
14:51:37dwihnowhat if a disc ain't stored in the accurip database?
14:52:00daurnimatorthen you make a decision
14:52:13daurnimatorbut - thats rare to happen anyway
14:55:40pixelmaif your drive can detect c2 errors you can rip a cd pretty fast even in EAC's secure mode (if the disc doesn't have many scratches)
15:05:02Soaphow are submissions to the accurip database vetted?

18:07:48Soap4G ipods are more crash prone than other targets. There is a patch to prevent (most) of the crashes by disabling the frequency scaling (dynaminc changing of CPU frequency) this does solve most the problems, but eats more battery.

20:58:08amiconnThe ipod target tree files suffer from excessive including
20:58:17 Part Terinjokes
20:58:48amiconn...and the backlight-*.c files there try something that cannot work
20:59:26dan_aWhen you go into a lot of the debug screens, it hangs the Sansa. I think this might be something to do with the timer interrupt - someone needs to investigate that and see what's going wrong.
20:59:58amiconnhmpf :\
21:00:08amiconnm68k-elf-gcc 3.4.6 doesn't build on interix
21:00:15*amiconn tries 4.0.3
21:00:27dan_aAlso, we need to change the LCD driver, so that it has 2 framebuffers (one which Rockbox talks to, and then we copy sections of that over to the one that the LCD controller talks to)
21:00:41amiconnDo we?
21:00:42dan_aThis will make the splash work properly
21:00:54dan_aamiconn: On the Sansa
21:01:00amiconnI know what you mean
21:01:05amiconnWhat's wrong with the splash?
21:01:20dionoeaahem ...
21:01:24dionoeaand hi
21:01:24dan_aIt blanks the rest of the screen until it goes
21:01:36GnelikSome of them
21:01:37GnelikSome not
21:01:39*amiconn wonders why that happens
21:01:56amiconndan_a: Are you calling it with true or false as the first parameter?
21:02:05dan_aIt must call lcd_update_rect - which we can't implement properly
21:02:35amiconnThe splash doesn't clear the outer area of a 'true' (i.e. centered and framed) splash
21:02:39dan_aamiconn: I don't know! This is when things like the low battery warning come up
21:02:42Gnelikok, if it will be something another write to m on forum
21:02:56Gneliki try to do something
21:03:08 Quit Gnelik (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
21:03:11amiconndan_a: 'true' makes the splash text centered in a box, with a solid background and the outer area unchanged
21:03:41amiconn'false' makes the splash appear as plain left aligned text on a cleared screen
21:04:17amiconnSorry, it's the 2nd parameter of course
21:04:39dan_aIt appears as text centered in a box, with a solid background, and the outer area cleared until the splash goes away
21:05:36***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
21:06:23amiconnSplash updates the whole lcd on all targets
21:06:44amiconnapps/gui/splash.c: line 194: screen->update();
21:07:30amiconnMaybe the low bat splash clears the screen before splashing? (which would be a bug)
21:08:38dan_aI think every splash screen I've seen does it... is there a simple way I can trigger one?
21:09:51amiconnThe shutdown splash caller also clears the screen beforehand
21:10:02amiconnHmm, you need to find a splash that doesn't do this
21:10:38amiconnThe 'Nothing to resume' splash doesn't do this
21:10:52dan_a"Cancelled" doesn't do it either
21:11:11amiconnYes, in the settings
21:11:12dan_aSo I was wrong - we might get away with one framebuffer :)
21:11:35amiconnAs long as you can tell the controller when to update, it should suffice,m yes
21:12:11dan_aWe seem to be able to. Although there is a bit of flickering on the cube plugin.
21:12:29dan_aDoom looked fine, though
21:17:11amiconnHmm, m68k-elf-gcc on interix suffers from the same build problem as on cygwin or macosx
21:17:18amiconn68040 fails
21:17:23*amiconn applies patch

23:26:17rasherz0de: I'm actually not really sure.. check the ipod faq
23:26:25rasheroh damn
23:26:28*petur thought thread priority solved the skipping on ipod
23:26:36z0derasher: its a iaudio x5l
23:26:51z0dei dont think the ipod faq will help/
23:26:54rasherOh, usually only the ipods have problems
23:26:58rasherWell, the problem is the same
23:27:10rasherSo it will in fact. It's just usually a problem on the ipods
23:27:37rasherWhat are you trying to play?
23:27:54z0deaudio files are mp3's
23:28:13rasherStrange.. the x5 really shouldn't skip when playing mp3s
23:28:44rasherAre you scrolling a large list, and do some of the entries have strange characters in them? (that is, anything outside standard ascii)
23:29:14rasherI still think there's something strange going on relating to unicode when scrolling large lists
23:29:27z0delist is big, no special chars
23:29:42rasherHm okay
23:29:52rasherAre you using a recent build?
23:30:42z0deand it doesn't skip it just stops and keeps scrolling, if i stop scrolling for any length of time (milliseconds) i can play and scroll again untill it stops the music again
