00:26:56Soapno problem
00:27:03Soapgoing to do stock 0.4 now.
00:27:12TrueJournalsHey... real quick question... does rockbox support playing ABR MP3 files?
00:27:27Soapdon't do it TrueJournals!
00:27:35SoapYour iPod will EXPLODE!
00:27:38Paul_the_NerdTrueJournals: Rockbox supports all valid MP3s.
00:27:40TrueJournalsdon't have an iPod
00:27:43Paul_the_NerdOr it should.
00:27:44TrueJournalsI have an iRiver H10
00:27:47Paul_the_NerdIf it doesn't, it's a bug.
00:27:47Soaplucky you
00:27:51TrueJournalsok, thanks
00:27:53Soapit would explode an Apple.
00:28:22linuxstbWhat's ABR?
00:28:28SoapAverage Bitrate
00:28:36TrueJournalsDoes anybody know anything about ABR MP3s? I just found out about them... what would you say the quality is compared to VBR and CBR?
00:28:43Soapworse than VBR
00:28:46Soapbetter than CBR
00:28:54Soapbasicly it is a hampered CBR.
00:29:05Soapa hampered VBR.
00:29:14TrueJournalsI've heard that rockbox has problems with VBR a lot though... (I've never had any problems with VBR...)
00:29:29Soapthe only reason to use them is if you MUST know what the filesize will be +-N%
00:29:35linuxstbSo it's VBR, but with the encoder aiming for an average bitrate, rather than quality?
00:29:46*linuxstb shudders
00:29:54TrueJournalsI'll go for VBR then :-p
00:30:06EsoterikQuick question.. the CVS builds for the ipod video. do those work for the 5.5g to?
00:30:19SoapTrueJournals: Lame 3.97 - standard switches, no fancy stuff.
00:30:23linuxstbEsoterik: Yes.
00:30:50 Join JdGordon [0] (n=jonno@rockbox/developer/JdGordon)
00:31:15SoapTrueJournals: throw out any switches you learned in the past. Stick with the stock -v new switches.
00:31:20linuxstbEsoterik: The only part of the 5.5g puzzle that isn't "official" is the bootloader. The official ipodpatcher, ipod_fw and daily/cvs builds are all compatible with the 30GB 5g.
00:31:37linuxstb^ I meant 30GB 5.5g
00:32:01linuxstbBut it hasn't really been announced anywhere yet...
00:32:12TrueJournalsSoap: Well, I don't go for just the LAME encoder... I'm using MediaMonkey... it has a bunch of presets so I was wondering what I should do... I saw "Near CD - ABR ..." and was curious
00:32:15 Quit Criamos ("( :: NoNameScript 4.03 :: )")
00:32:36Soapgo Lame 3.97
00:32:37TrueJournalsI decided to go for "Standard - ~192 kbps VBR"
00:32:38Soapnothing else.
00:32:45SoapI'm serious
00:32:50TrueJournalseh :-\
00:33:18*idnar goes with FLAC :)
00:33:31SoapI don't know what encoder MediaMonkey uses, but LAME is far and away the only MP3 encoder people should be using. Its maturity is leaps and bounds above all others.
00:34:20Soapyou can go with a VBR that will output files smaller than 192 average and sound superior in every way to a CBR or ABR 192.
00:35:28SoapPaul_the_Nerd: FWIW I get the same error with 0.4 he did.
00:35:36TrueJournalsI'm willing to bet MediaMonkey uses LAME
00:35:53TrueJournalsI'd be a bit surprised if it didn't...
00:36:36 Part homecable
00:36:45TrueJournalsah, not by default, but you can switch it to use LAME
00:36:57TrueJournalsdarn it... now I have to download LAME and reencode:-p
00:36:58Esoterikthats good to know, thanks. Well then can you help me with this, i got the CVS dailt build for my ipod 30gb and i extracted it to the ipod... when i boot it i get an error: -1. whats the cause?
00:37:11Soapmediamonkey standard does NOT use LAME by default.
00:39:01Soapcommand line switch
00:39:03Soap-V2 −−vbr-new
00:39:16Soapwill give you excellent quality at +- 192kb/s
00:39:31Soapsorry all for the off topic.
00:43:02linuxstbEsoterik: That means the bootloader can't find rockbox.ipod in the root of your ipod (i.e. E:\ if Windows shows it as drive E:)
00:44:24 Quit dj-fu ("( :: NoNameScript 4.03 :: )")
00:48:27EsoterikHmm , the files are the but im still getting an error....the previous boot partions i made during the installation, do those need to be copied to the ipods root folder?
00:49:02 Quit MarcoPolo ("Bye !")
00:50:58Paul_the_NerdEsoterik: So, there is a file E:\rockbox.ipod (or whatever drive your ipod is, F:\, D:\, whatever)?
00:51:31Paul_the_NerdAnd the iPod is fat32 formatted?
00:51:32 Quit TrueJournals ("See Ya")
00:52:08Esoterikand when i disconnect the ipod , it boots up and then gives me the error and keeps reseting
00:53:50 Quit shnee (Operation timed out)
00:54:34Paul_the_NerdThat's very strange, because the -1 error specifically means that it can't find rockbox.ipod in the first Fat32 partition on the drive.
00:54:48 Quit My_Sic ("Miranda IM! Smaller, Faster, Easier.")
00:54:54Paul_the_NerdSpecifically in the / or /.rockbox folders of that partition.
00:56:07Esoterikwell im curious about this... the partions that you make in the beginning of installation.. do i need to move those onto the ipod after they have been created? better yet is there any renaming of files that needs to be done?
00:56:27Paul_the_NerdWhat partitions are you talking about?
00:57:13Paul_the_NerdUnless you're fixing up an HFS+ formatted iPod, you don't do any partitioning during the install process.
00:57:48Paul_the_NerdIf you're referring to the bootpartition.bin file, that's not a partition you've created, it's a file containing the contents of one, and you're done with them once you've got the bootloader working (though the original bootpartition.bin should be kept as backup)
00:58:10Esoterikumm like rockboot , bootpartition , apple_sw_5g_rcsc and apple_os ... sorry i was using the wrong word... i ment BIN files, my mistake
00:59:04Paul_the_NerdThere are no install steps necessary beyond those in the instructions, so I'm not really sure why you're asking if any renaming or copying of those files is necessary, as if we left out steps that would be required for installing.
01:00:09Esoterikno no , i just thought i may have forgot to do something with the files as a possible fix thats all , sorry.
01:00:57Paul_the_NerdHonestly, the problem is either with the bootloader not seeing the rockbox.ipod file, or the rockbox.ipod file not actually being where the bootloader's looking, if that's the error message you get.
01:01:05Paul_the_NerdThere are other errors, but that one's pretty specific.
01:02:10EsoterikHmm, im gunna try a few things and see if i can get anything to work
01:03:36***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
01:03:48Esoterikthere is a line however after just booting it now that reads, "no boot partion found" , does this mean i messed up during my install?

01:28:35JdGordonwhat is the best way to figure out the stack usage of a function as it runs?
01:29:43linuxstbCan't you tell by just looking at what local variables are defined?
01:30:05linuxstbOr do you mean all the other functions it will call?
01:30:17JdGordonthe second
01:31:31linuxstbI don't know, but the debug screen tells you the maximum amount of stack a thread has used. Would that help?
01:31:58linuxstbIf you're getting stack overflows, then just increase the stack and then look at the debug screen to see what's being used.
01:32:17JdGordonIf i could get a better estimate for just the 1 functio and its calls it would be best... but if thats all there is i guess ill takeit
01:32:33linuxstbI think you're too late to get advice from people that know more than me...
01:37:58 Quit Thundercloud__ (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
01:38:05JdGordondamn, doesnt look like rockbox keeps a stack_top pointer or similar... oh well
01:39:00linuxstbI guess that's the SP register...
01:39:30JdGordonthats not available to the c code is it?
01:40:15linuxstbYou could probably use inline assembler to move it to a variable. But don't ask me how, especially on Coldfire.
01:40:44linuxstbOr when a thread yields, the registers are moved into the thread context buffer.
01:40:52*JdGordon gives up on this idea
01:41:36*linuxstb gives up on staying awake

03:45:09goffacan't wait until they get audio
03:45:17SimonSelkiWhen I got my ipod nano, I used the apple firmware for about 3 hours before switching to Rockbox
03:45:28SimonSelkiI transfered over 1 CD in that time
03:45:30SimonSelkiusing iTunes
03:45:49SimonSelkiwhen I listen to that 1 CD, every now in then, like once ever 3 or 4 minutes

03:53:36SimonSelkiIt's on a preset I'm pretty sure
03:53:47SoapRockbox has EQ presets?

03:58:59Paul_the_NerdI love it, we have one of the most advanced EQs on a portable device, and people dislike it because we don't have presets that completely negate the purpose of an EQ. :)
03:59:19scorchebut the point was, if you disable the EQ, you most likely wont have the skips
03:59:27Paul_the_NerdSimonSelki: And your other songs that you've copied over, I assume they're MP3?

04:01:01Paul_the_NerdA simple WPS, or turning off the EQ, or any of the other normal methods of reducing skipping should work for your problem.
04:01:04scorcheso nothing that is time consuming is worthwhile?
04:01:19Paul_the_NerdAs well, ripping the CD to a faster format such as MP3 will also solve it
04:01:54scorcheeven if you know how to work an EQ, you still have to basically move the bars till it sounds just know which bars to move
04:02:14Paul_the_NerdI use the EQ to kill the hiss in poorly encoded audiobooks, but that's about it.

04:25:49egotrippenit does =-)
04:25:58Soap3 - rockbox's battery gague is not the most accurate on the iPods.

04:31:06Paul_the_NerdAnd this is the original bootpartition.bin, created from a working iPod, you haven't done an ipodpatcher -r since then, at all?
04:32:01Esoteriknot that i know of... i am afraid however that i may have written over it when i tried reinstalling the second time... can that happen?
04:33:32Esoterikthe boot partion i have is 96mb
04:34:09Paul_the_NerdIt's possible that you extracted the file a second time, if you try installing twice in a row without restoring your iPod, and don't skip the first step.
04:34:39Paul_the_NerdIn which case, your best bet is to just use the Apple restore tool

04:35:02jbahey guys, does rockbox random create a random list or just pick songs at random?
04:35:07Esoterikand i can get that just from a google search right?
04:35:14jbaas in if i press back, can i go to the last played song, or is it no capable of knowing that?
04:35:21JdGordonegotrippen: ok, just need to talk to the swedes abou lettng it be comited :p
04:35:30EsoterikSoap its 5.5g 30gb video
04:35:32Paul_the_Nerdjba: There is no "Random"
04:35:49jbaoh no
04:35:52Paul_the_Nerdjba: There is a Shuffle though, which shuffles your playlist, so you can even go to playlist view and see what the previous song was.
04:35:53*jba reals in horror
04:36:07jbaaah, that's mauch better, exactly what i wanted
04:36:44jbagigabeat random is shite, it either randomises everything or current directory only, so no luck if you want to randomise a particular genre and listen to it
04:38:39EsoterikPaul where can i get the restore utility?
04:39:20Paul_the_NerdEsoterik: The apple site? Make sure to back up your music from your iPod, if that's your only copy, as it'll reformat the device.
04:39:50Esoterikwill do

04:52:16Paul_the_NerdYou need to use a tool specifically designed to restore iPods.
04:52:30Paul_the_NerdiTunes 7 will do it for you, as well there are older versions of stand-alone restore tools.
04:52:38Paul_the_NerdIf you're referring to the HP iPod tool, that ought to work

06:07:05Paul_the_NerdSo, which part of Texas are you in that you're not from? I'm curious now, because outside of Austin, most people tend to want to claim belonging to this massive lump of land.
06:07:24SimonSelkiI guessed that right when you said "bloody hell, another Texan."
06:07:33SimonSelkiI'm actually 20 miles from Austin
06:07:55SimonSelkiI am a Texan, but I know people who live here and aren't
06:08:02Paul_the_NerdWell then, I'm going to tell you right now, no matter how badly you screw up your iPod, I will never ever come take a look at it.
06:09:06SimonSelkibecause I live so far away, or because you disagree with austin? Or with Texas?
06:09:28SimonSelkiI've no loyalty to this state, it's political awareness and general education is a joke
06:10:27SimonSelkiI'm not joking. I don't know what you know about austin, but it's basicly the liberal capital of the south
06:10:27goffawow.. 3 rockboxers in montana now :)

06:40:09Paul_the_NerdOr Blah\Album\Artist\Song.m4a? The important question is whether it's in an album folder that's in an artist folder.
06:40:12Sumguy21In the ipod folder itself, or in the database?
06:40:19Paul_the_NerdYou said it wasn't in the database at all.

06:40:52Paul_the_NerdAnd I was asking about how the files were on the iPod
06:40:59Sumguy21Just in the root
06:41:27Paul_the_NerdAh, then if it's showing artist and album then yes, the metadata's fine. Many WPSes use the folder structure to make up for it if it's not found.

07:51:44amiconnopen itself has one file name buffer (260 bytes). It needs opendir in turn, which has another name buffer (260 bytes), and a struct fat_direntry, which is about the same size (a 256 byte buffer and some numbers)
07:53:07amiconnTogether with the buffer in settings_save_config() this already makes for >1KB

08:09:52Slasherihmm, true
08:10:42LinusNbesides, i don't want my player to spin up when i shut it down if it isn't absolutely necesary
08:11:29amiconnJdGordon: Did you already try to separate these often-changing values from the 'normal' settings?
08:12:22JdGordonI did, but dont really see the need, because its stil writing to disk, so there is only a tiny speed difference between writing the whle file and writing just the frequently used ones
08:12:48LinusNJdGordon: the speed isn't the issue
08:12:57amiconnThe speed is not the only issue
08:13:12JdGordonthere is an increase in bin size if we add a special case for them
08:13:16amiconnThese ever-changing values are not really settings, and hence shouldn't be stored in a .cfg
08:13:26LinusNwe want to avoid a spinup on shutdown
08:13:44LinusNamiconn: that too
08:13:46amiconnI don't want that loading a .cfg changes my resume position, or battery runtime
08:14:17JdGordonhmm.. forgot about those settings
08:14:21amiconnAnd on targets with non-volatile memory (rtc ram, serial eeprom), these settings wouldn't be saved on disk

08:26:50JdGordonok, system setings are saving to system.cfg
08:29:04amiconnThey are not really settings. I think saving them to a binary file and not needing all those min/max/step/name entries should be code size neutral
08:29:16*corevette is tired.
08:29:43JdGordonits easier this way, they wont get the min/max/step text anyway
08:29:56JdGordonI implemented it using 2 fd's so just switchin between them
08:30:03amiconnIt's not easier
08:30:27amiconnIt's perhaps easier for targets without non-volatile memory, but it means more ifdefing
08:31:06JdGordonand system "settings" and non-volatile "settings" are not nessaceraly the same
08:31:08amiconnIf you make it a separate function, this function would then be filled with the appropriate nvmem access code instead of file code
08:31:30amiconnWhere are they different?
08:31:42JdGordonwhy are they the same?
08:31:50JdGordondoh, misread
08:32:41amiconnI can only think of the follwoing values which I see as status values rather than settings: resume position, battery current runtime & top runtime, dircache size
08:33:13 Quit menosm_ (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
08:33:24JdGordondoing it as text means that we dont have the current problem of outdating the config file
08:33:38amiconnThose values won't outdate easily
08:33:55JdGordonthe order may change, so they could
08:33:56amiconnThe settings should of course be text
08:34:16amiconnWhy would the order of these few values change? How often would that happen?
08:35:07JdGordonbecause with the list, you dont have to add new values at the end like currently, you add them where they are logically placed. Adding new rtc/system values would invalidate the bin file
08:35:36amiconnNo, it wouldn't if you add them at the end
08:35:46JdGordonbut why add that restriction?
08:35:52amiconnWhy not?
08:35:56JdGordonsettings get lost that way
08:35:59amiconnHey, they are just 4 values now
08:36:09JdGordonnot lost, but order is nice
08:36:14amiconnPerhaps you don't understand what I mean
08:36:36amiconnThe _configurable settings_ should of course be text, and the order doesn't matter anymore
08:36:39JdGordonno, i do.. i guess it depends how the file is written
08:36:55amiconnBut the _status values_ should be binary, and the order does matter
08:37:19amiconnHowever, the status values will change very rarely, if ever
08:37:35amiconnOf course I mean their number, not the contents ;)

08:38:08JdGordonthe way rtc settigns are written now is like this. the list is iterated through, and each rtc setting uses the next 4 bytes of the ram. no other information is needed except the rtc veriso which is saved. it makes very simple loading but means you cant add rtc settings between 2 other ones without invaliding it
08:38:21amiconnLinusN: Did you read my statements regarding CACR? Turned out I was wrong about CINV (bit 24), but what about bit 9?

08:40:45amiconnYeah, not very nice...
08:41:12Slasherii have also thought something like that but didn't see it really useful enough
08:41:46Slasheriand flash will wear out something like 10x sooner than eeprom
08:42:11amiconnHow many cycles does the eeprom datasheet state?

08:42:30amiconnThe flash eproms in our targets are specced 100.000 cycles
08:42:36Slasherii am not sure if iirc, but i think it was 100 000 for eeprom and for flash 10 000
08:42:42Slasheribut might be even more
08:43:00amiconn...and with a full block, you don't need to erase & rewrite every time
08:43:13Slasheriok, then it was probably 1M for eeprom
08:43:24Slasherishould be enough if we save just on every shutdown
08:43:28amiconnJust append until block is full, then erase once
08:44:08Slasheribut then it would be necessary to move the CFI code from a plugin to the core..
08:44:24Slasheriand on irivers, last block is reserved for the bootloader
08:44:36Slasheriand there is no free blocks unless original fw is removed
08:45:50Slasheriand with OF removed, we could as well use the eeprom

09:30:16peturJdGordon, Slasheri: dircache setting saving is still not ok (as Moos said). After scanning is done the first time, the subsequent shutdown doesn't spin up the disk and as such doesn't save the dircache size
09:32:53petursimple to test really: disable it, reboot, enable it, reboot, reboot again and observe the disk doesn't spin
09:33:37peturand get the 'Scanning Disk' on every boot again and again :/

09:37:21petursorry, just put your name in because it was dircache related too

11:23:19Slasherii think what is wrong with that
11:23:46JdGordonit does do the write.. it does it when boot finishes and the dsk spins down, if nothin changes between then and shutdown it shouldnt spin the disk
11:23:49Slasheriit has settings_save() after building the dircache but global_settings.dircache_size has not been set yet
11:23:55Slasheriso it basically saves nothing
11:24:06Slasheriit needs to do: global_settings.dircache_size = dircache_get_cache_size();
11:24:10Slasheribefore calling settings_save()
11:24:13JdGordonwhen goes that var get set?
11:24:20Slasheriin tree.c on shutdown
11:24:33JdGordonwtf? why the hec there?
11:25:06Slasheriit may change while rockbox is running
11:25:08JdGordonit shhuold be don in dircache_build().. no?
11:25:16LinusNit should definitely not do a settings_save on shutdown
11:25:56Slasheridircache itself is firmware level code, so it doesn't know about global_settings
11:26:06LinusNSlasheri: it should probably do a settings_save when the dircache size changes, but not on every shutdown
11:26:29LinusNcould it perhaps keep track if the size has changed since the last save?
11:26:33SlasheriLinusN: hmm, maybe. Probably a callback function needs to be implemented then
11:27:03Slasherihmm, yes. Or for example on shutdown, we could compare dircache_size and the value returned by dircache
11:27:08Slasheriand if it's different, then call settings_save
11:27:15LinusNsounds fair
11:27:32JdGordonshould the dircache code call settings_save() when the size changes?
11:27:39JdGordoninstead of the apps/ code?
11:27:54Slasherino firmware -> apps level calls
11:28:03JdGordonah, righto
11:28:44JdGordonyou mentioned the callback then, thats not technically a firmware->apps call
11:28:53JdGordonI dont think tree.c shhuold handle this
11:29:02Slasheriyep, call back could be one (more complex) solution too
11:29:51Slasheritree needs to handle at least disabling and re-enabling dircache when usb connection occurs
11:30:23amiconndircache_size isn't a setting (in the terms I explained this morning), but a status variable

11:30:59amiconnAnd these should be handled on shutdown, as they're practically always changing
11:32:04JdGordonthat bassically forces a write every shutdown

11:33:00JdGordonruntime is another status variable which is guarenteed to be different every reboot
11:33:28LinusNi think runtime should be optional
11:34:42Slasherii think it should be allowed for disk to spin-up on every shutdown and do as much processing as possible to get a fast bootup
11:35:04Slasheriof course with archos that wouldn't be possible
11:35:55amiconnresume position will also be different every time
11:36:21amiconn...unless you don't play any music during the session, or have no resume pos both before & after
11:37:04amiconnAnd we can ensure that disk only spins up when the values have changed for real
11:37:34JdGordondoh! I found out why it writes twice on shutdown... tree_flush() should be before call_ata_idle_notifys() not after in system_flush();
11:37:39JdGordoncould explain why nothing saves
11:39:32*amiconn thinks the whole ata flush in special situations (shutdown, usb) needs to be doubled-checked

12:48:48Genre9mp3btw... in the recording screen, it takes some time for the backlight to turn on when you press a button... this is not recent though... but I was wondering, is this because of the peakmeters?
12:49:27jhMikeSare you having the lcd turn off with the backlight? (just checking)
12:50:10jhMikeSnever noticed too much lag myself though...only on the H120 with fading
12:51:38MmmmAt the moment, in the virtual keyboard for ipods, long press select is 'accept and exit', would short press play be acceptable instead? If so we can have morse mode on the ipod VK.
12:52:22amiconnIsn't play taken already?
12:52:28jhMikeSGenre9mp3: I forget which player you have. Not x5 right? So the first things probably irrelevant.
12:52:29Genre9mp3jhMikeS: not quite sure to tell you the truth... isn't always the LCD off when backlight is off on h300?
12:52:48Mmmmamiconn: not in the VK, no..

13:29:21JdGordonso, out of curiosity... when im finished double checking all the settings.. are there any other problems (at first glance) with the settins patch?
13:31:07LinusNdoes it use RTC RAM on the archos recorder?
13:31:20JdGordonyes, but that code is untested
13:31:32LinusNcan it separate settings and "status variables"?
13:31:53JdGordonthe latter goes into system.cfg instead of config.cfg
13:32:19*amiconn still wants a binary file for those, unless there is nvmem available
13:32:44LinusNamiconn: how come?
13:33:21linuxstb_I agree with amiconn - the state variables don't belong in the settings .cfg
13:34:10amiconnLinusN: Faster saving, and the format can be identical to what is written to the nvmem on the respective targets
13:34:10 Nick linuxstb_ is now known as linuxstb (n=linuxstb@rockbox/developer/linuxstb)

13:34:57Slasherii think also a separate binary file would be ideal storing the state variables
13:35:33Slasheriuser never needs/should to change them
13:35:35JdGordonI dont see why binary is better than text its heaps more flexible
13:36:01*JdGordon is happy to change the extensio to .dat if that makes everyone happy
13:36:07Slasheriit easier to parse and handle, and faster
13:36:22linuxstbJdGordon: Simplicity - the state variables are stored as binary in nvmem, so also save in same format to disk if nvmem is not available.
13:36:29Slasherijust one struct containing everything..
13:36:29CassandraI'm with amiconn on that.
13:36:58JdGordonSlasheri: unless you want to split these vars out of global_settings that cant be done
13:37:08Slashericould be even something like firmware/eeprom_settings.h struct (containing checksum at the end of struct)
13:37:16jhMikeStext is better since there's no need for a version or particular positions of items
13:37:27JdGordonjhMikeS got it on one!
13:37:40SlasheriJdGordon: hmm, i think they should be splitted out..
13:37:56Slasherifor example global_settings and global_state or something like that :D
13:38:32CassandraJdGordon, I thought that was precisely what the old archos disk sector stored config was.
13:39:10JdGordonthe idea is to move away from config versions to eliminate unneeded resets when updating
13:39:10*Genre9mp3 grabs some pop-corn and watches the dev wars! :)
13:39:35linuxstbThe state variables haven't changed for years...

13:41:40LinusNand binary is fine with me
13:42:14jhMikeSHaving a lists of structures with the size, name, and data for each setting could be binary and be version free
13:43:31JdGordonthis has all the info for every setting used.. only settings made with the SYSTEM_ITEM() macro are the ones we are dealing with. If we store in binary then a versio number needs to be kept or you have to keep adding system items after the last system_item (regula items will be skipped). saving as text means we dont need to worry abou the order
13:44:38JdGordon... of course, that version will need to be kept for nvmem settins anyway, but I stll prefer the text :p
13:45:39jhMikeSso my global_state (a.k.a. "the big board") idea mentioned a couple weeks ago is catching fire...? ;)

13:50:56leonardI want to get info about SDK or something like to display a filled vector 3d cube on my sansa
13:51:14leonardwanted some technical information (speed of LCD VRAM write, etc)
13:51:16Bagderleonard: install the compiler, build rockbox, install it, run it, view the cube plugin! ;-)
13:51:41leonardthere already is a cube plugin?
13:51:45leonardwoow great ! :-)
13:52:12CassandraIt used to be a wirebox cube but amiconn has too much time on his hands, you see.
13:52:27leonardhumm I have to get CVS to get source code? (no SVN database? :-()
13:52:39Cassandra(way before the Sansa was even a twinkle in Sandisk's eye)
13:52:55Bagderleonard: yeps, get it from cvs and build a crosscompiler with tools/ in case you don't have any around
13:53:17Cassandrabagder - any news of that server space yet, btw?
13:53:36leonardhummm unfortunatly I'm not familiar with these linux/gcc stuff (I used ARM compiler for GBA, not GCC)
13:53:57markunleonard: which ARM compiler?
13:54:03LinusNthen use cygwin

13:56:41linuxstbCassandra: Yes, I'm waiting for 2.8.0 as well and then I'll upgrade all my environments (native Linux, cross-compiling win32 from Linux, and Mac OS X).
13:56:46leonardI do lots of "speed" stuff on GBA (3d filled vector)

13:58:23leonardi'm browsing the CVS repository, but I don't see anything about 3d "plugins" you told me...
13:58:33Bagder"click here to download plugin" ;-)
13:58:35leonardGBA is only a ARM processor
13:58:44leonardthere is a chip to display 2d sprite (with rotation)
13:58:48Bagderleonard: the cube plugin is a rotating 3d cube

14:00:34markunhey, stop reading my mind..
14:00:44*Cassandra has been wondering how much work it would be to homebrew Rockbox for the DS.
14:00:47leonardI have done a *very* small filled 3d cube on ARM for a contest
14:00:56Bagderleonard: you can also build and run rockbox as a simulator on your host
14:01:08leonardmy GBA file is 424 bytes long (consider there is 160bytes for nintendo official header)
14:01:34BagderI can see how amiconn will like you ;-)
14:01:42linuxstbCassandra: Also, we (as should be able to do automatic nightly builds of rbutil - I'll try and fix the Makefile for that once 2.8.0 is out.
14:01:42leonardbagder, could you explain? there is rockbox simulator on PC platform? (windows?)
14:01:59Cassandrabagder - re download - it is possible that webdav may be your friend. Or my friend. Or something.
14:02:03Bagderleonard: yes, get the code and build a simulator and it'll simulate all the lowlevel stuff and run in a window
14:02:10Genre9mp3GBA has an ARM7 right?
14:02:19leonardyes genre9mp3
14:02:21daurnimatori've always wanted to dev for gba

14:02:39Cassandralinuxstb, I'm not sure there's a necessity, really.
14:02:39Bagderleonard: PP5024
14:02:47Bagderwhich is an ARM7TDMI core
14:02:55leonarddon't know that ARM. similar to ARM7 ? ARM 9?
14:03:03leonardok so similar to arm7
14:03:10Bagderit is arm7
14:03:29leonardnice !
14:03:42leonardI don't put my little cube contest on my webpage
14:03:45Bagdereven two of them ;-)
14:03:49leonardI'll add these context
14:04:01leonardI have written a very fast JPEG display routine for GBA too
14:04:09leonardyou can see my app here:
14:04:21linuxstbCassandra: OK, but I'll be creating a Makefile for that anyway, so it would be easy to do if it's ever needed.
14:04:34leonardthis is a BMP previous version, but I have a fast jpeg decoder now (on ARM7)
14:05:00LinusNleonard: binaries without source code aren't that impressive
14:05:34leonardwhy linus?
14:05:58Cassandralinuxstb, yeah - we'll certainly be needing a Makefile.
14:06:12CassandraFor Mac if for nothing else.
14:06:21LinusNleonard: because we like open source
14:06:26linuxstbCassandra: Did you see my commit this morning?
14:06:40markunleonard: and because we don't all have a GBA to try your binaries
14:06:46CassandraI hope someone will come forward and take on Mac development, since I don't think I can afford a Mac Mini just for that purpose.
14:06:50leonardyes I get the point :-)
14:07:03linuxstbCassandra: I have that.
14:07:20leonardon my website there is a web gba emulator, you can see two of my productions (a 3d movie and a YM2149 sounchip music demo)
14:07:22Bagderleonard: by all means, feel free to improve whatever you find in Rockbox that isn't good enough ;-)
14:07:32leonardshould run on any java compatible browser
14:07:45Cassandralinuxstb, nah - missed it. main.c was a mistake. Wasn't part of the project.
14:07:47Bagderthat's not mine :-)
14:07:52Bagderjava enabled that is
14:08:04leonardbagder, I'd really love to change something in rockbox, first I have to get the environment
14:08:12LinusNleonard: if you are a ninja ARM hacker, we could sure use your skills to optimize our codecs
14:08:31CassandraYes, please. Optimise our codecs. We love the battery life.
14:08:40linuxstbCassandra: Hopefully it will "just work" on a Mac... The only thing I think we'll struggle with is finding where the disk is mounted. How do you handle that in Windows?
14:08:47leonardthe project is really cool for me, I'd like to optimize thing.
14:09:02LinusNthen we may even like you ;-)
14:09:04linuxstbWe also have an MPEG video decoder in need of ARM optimisations...
14:09:06leonardwhat kind of codec did rockbox suport? DIVx, MP3, OGG Vorbis?
14:09:33linuxstbleonard: Rockbox is 99% audio. Video playback is just in the early developmental stages.
14:09:34Cassandralinuxstb, standard file browser, on the assumption was that that was the most portable way I could do it.
14:09:47leonardother question: why don't switch to SVN instead? CVS is a bit old and has no "atomic" commit
14:09:55leonardaudio ok
14:10:04linuxstbCassandra: So maybe it will just work without any effort on Linux and Mac OS...
14:10:16Cassandraleonard, we ask ourselves that question a lot.
14:10:27LinusNwe are planning to move to svn
14:10:36CassandraI think the answer is "no-one really has the time to move the repository".
14:10:53LinusNit's not only about moving the repo
14:11:07LinusNit's about adapting all the autobuild scripts
14:11:11CassandraWell, "and the associated infrastructure"
14:11:15leonardok I understand. time is really missing to anybody...
14:11:30LinusNamen to that
14:11:43leonardbut if you move to SVN it will help a lot (I'm familiar to SVN and Tortoise under windows os)
14:11:58LinusNhow would it help us "a lot"?
14:12:15peturleonard: there's also a toirtoise for cvs ;)
14:12:17Bagderleonard: cvs and svn are very similar usage-wise
14:12:24CassandraActually what I really need to improve my development is a chair that doesn't leave me in pain.
14:13:09leonardys similar but not atomic commit, which is great feature when several people are working closely together
14:13:17leonardanyway CVS is not a problem I agree
14:13:26Bagderleonard: we have _never_ suffered from the lack of atomic commits
14:13:38Bagderand we are 60 committers in a 5 years old project
14:13:41leonardlooking at the codec page, did these codecs work at full speed on a sansa e200? (especially ogg vorbis?)
14:14:22Bagderwe don't have sound on the sansa yet
14:14:33Bagderbut they're expected to run fine on it
14:14:40amiconnCassandra: Filled triangles aren't really difficult...
14:15:05leonardfilled triangle are not difficuult. FAST cliped and filled triangles are ! :-)
14:15:32markunleonard: but optimising for Ogg Vorbis (Tremor) are always welcome
14:16:01leonardI said ogg vorbis because the decoder is quite complex (and tremor library is already well optimized)
14:16:18leonardI can optimise filled vector routines, and JPEG routine
14:16:31Bagderhehe, not really our primary focus
14:16:31leonardI'm afraid I'm not specialisit in ogg vorbis (neither in MP3)
14:17:20leonardjust for info, wich frequency runs the ARM7 of the sandisk e200? and how many fast RAM is there? (GBA is 14Mhz with 32Kb of very fast 32bits RAM)
14:17:28markunleonard: the imdct could be replaced by a FFT + some other things. Maybe with a FFT in assembler this will speed up things a bit.
14:17:41Cassandralinuxstb, was it you who was asking about portability, btw? I've just added full support for storing local config on the device.
14:18:04markunleonard: the ARM9 in the Toshiba Gigabeat runs at 300MHz :)

14:18:32amiconnWe run it up to 75MHz, it's specced 100MHz afaik
14:18:48amiconnSansa is PP5024, correct?
14:18:53leonardtwo ARM at 75Mhz ?? wooww !! :-) and is it fast to write something on the LCD screen? (is the screen memory mapped, 16bits per pixel, as GBA?=
14:19:20LinusNSlasheri: how about updating the scheduler Wiki page? (nag nag)
14:19:22amiconnWe only use one core right now
14:19:34amiconnGetting the cop to work seems to be somewhat diffcult
14:20:05Cassandraamiconn: have you tried voodoo?
14:20:09leonardI guess. I know multi-threading is not really easy, and even more on unknow system using reverse enginering :-)
14:20:13amiconnBagder: PP5022 (mini G2) is also specced 100MHz, and I successfully ran it at 96MHz
14:20:18SlasheriLinusN: ah, still quite out of time :/
14:20:38leonardso do you have an idea of how fast is ti to write pixels on MCD? (on sandisk e200?)
14:20:50Bagderleonard: feel free to try and measure
14:20:59leonardLCD sorry (not mcd)
14:21:06amiconnSomeone should run test-fps.rock on Sansa
14:21:14Bagderdan_a did

14:22:05leonard14000 fps s a decent framerate :-)
14:22:13amiconnTh3e lcd update needs to wait for the lcd to finish
14:22:15leonardbut maybe its profiler was a bit wrong :-)
14:22:24Bagderamiconn: yeah
14:22:31Bagderleonard: indeed it was
14:23:02amiconnOtherwise the drawing might really mess up. All current drawing relies on lcd_update() being synchronous

14:24:54bkFix for rbutil compiling on linux:
14:24:59leonardwell I'm trying to run the rockbox simulator (windows)
14:25:08leonardI downloaded the "ipod nano" simulator
14:25:24Kasperlewow. bk? is that you?
14:25:29leonardwhen running "rockboxui.exe", I only get a window with some graphical glitch, nothing more
14:25:32leonardam I right?
14:26:42linuxstbbk: Why hardcode 2.6?
14:27:34bkBecause it works. :) I don't know much about how wx versions includes, some mailing list postings I came across recommended that fix
14:27:43linuxstbbk: Also, should the hyperlink stuff be #ifdef'd out if it's unavailable on certain platforms?
14:27:51Bagderleonard: you could read up on the details, like on how to create a simulated root dir and you can use −−background etc
14:28:15bkyes, probably #ifdef'd but I'm not sure how bad that breaks the About dlg.
14:28:22Genre9mp3leonard: btw... the numpad is your friend for operating the sim ;)
14:28:42linuxstbbk: I would rather wait for 2.8.0 to be released ("any day now"), and then we can try and make rbutil work with that on all platforms.
14:29:17leonardthanks bagder... humm seems I have a lot of work reading carefully anythin before displaying anything on my sandisk :-)
14:29:33bkfair enough, although the lag will be significant for many/most Linux distros
14:29:37Bagderleonard: I disagree
14:29:46Bagderalmost all the hard work is already done
14:29:54leonardhow can I launch the 3d cube plugin on simulator for ex?
14:29:56Bagderunless you consider reading wiki hard work
14:30:23Bagderview the manu, select view plugins, select the plugin
14:30:52barrywardelllinuxstb: did you give Bagder my universal ipod_fw?
14:31:06CassandraI'm pretty much going to insist on using 2.8. More and more things I want to do don't work without it.
14:31:18leonardhummm when I click "menu" on the ipod bitmap nothing append :-(
14:31:38Bagderyou press keys to operate it
14:31:40leonardwhith the mouse?
14:31:41Genre9mp3[15:28] <Genre9mp3> leonard: btw... the numpad is your friend for operating the sim ;)
14:31:43leonardkeyboard only?
14:32:00leonardah ok :-)

14:32:54leonardgreat !
14:33:54leonardi understand more well the simulator
14:33:59leonardvery good job guys !
14:34:32leonardso the cube plugin is compiled for each hardware? (for the screen size I guess?)
14:34:47Bagdereverything is compiled for the specific target
14:35:17leonardto install the right GCC , is there an installer, or do I have to install the toolchin myself?
14:35:32Bagderthere's lots of help to do that
14:35:39barrywardellBagder: I think linuxstb wanted this put up on barrywardell/assets/files/ipod_fw">http://barrywardell/assets/files/ipod_fw
14:35:49Bagderprebuilt cygwin package, prebuilt for vmware or a shell script for any-linux
14:35:55barrywardellit's a version compiled for both intel and ppc macs
14:36:36Bagderbarrywardell: I bet you forgot something in that host name? ;-)
14:36:38leonarddid the original sandisk e200 firmware work on the simulator?
14:36:58Bagderleonard: no, its not an emulator it doesn't run native ARM code
14:37:15barrywardelloh yeah, it should be">
14:37:38leonardok bagder I see the point
14:37:49Bagderbarrywardell: done!
14:38:19leonardok one last question:
14:38:48leonardis it hard to flash my e200 sandisk with a rockbox, and is it easy to flash back the original firmware?
14:38:58leonard(and is it safe? :-))
14:39:09Bagderit is reasonably safe and it is easy
14:39:50barrywardellleonard: there is a dual-boot bootloader on the way. it will give the option to boot either rockbox or the of
14:40:06leonarddual boot is a very , very cool idea !

15:30:10webguest20Yesterday I asked about the problem I had with running tools/configure under cygwin. I solved the problem. I run cygwin install without actually installing any packages, and just set the line ends to DOS. That did the trick.
15:31:03webguest20Although cygwin recommends to use UNIX line ends I set them to DOS since wincvs (the program I use for CVS updates) creates files with DOS cr/lf's.
15:32:38webguest20Frankly said I didn't know what cr/lf setting I've been using before. I thought I had all the default cygwin settings, i.e. UNIX. But this was probably wrong.

16:28:03preglowtidying, probably
16:28:41webguest99If there were enough will to incorporate the patch I'd synch it with CVS
16:29:03preglowdoesn't look like a bad idea, really

16:29:36preglowbut i won't ever use it, so
16:30:15preglowbut it kinda makes sense to not restrict the startup screen functionality to recording, that's for sure
16:30:16webguest99One obvious virtue: one setting instead of currently two ("resume on startup" and "start in recording screen") which are contradictory
16:30:42preglowalso a good point
16:31:04linuxstbLast time it was discussed, I thought the conclusion was that someone should implement a higher-level "root menu", and all the other screens are called from there. That FS task would then just specify which of the options in the root menu would be auto-selected on boot.
16:31:11linuxstb(but I could be mis-remembering...)
16:31:56Bagderand we should "flatten" the code that deals with the screens
16:31:57preglowsounds like that would lead to less code
16:32:08webguest99linuxstb: I think you're right. But that would be a major undertaking. The patch makes in a "milder" way
16:32:56webguest99"milder" but (I agree) not very elegant −− less elegant than would be possible with the "flat screens"
16:33:33preglowpeople need to donate more so we can hire contributors to implement features!

17:59:43PaulPositionbarrywardell: Is the "OF.bin" instead of "Original.mi4" going to stick, or is another naming scheme more likely to be used (I dunno rockbox standard) when you'll commit the patch? For that matter, did it happen before in the history of RB that the bootloader had to change in-sync with the cvs daily builds (I suppose that could cause some chaos..)?
17:59:57Nico_Pi was thinking that the most elegant way to integrate it in rockbox would be to have sort of bookmarks in the file

There's no particular reason to choose that over Original.mi4, except maybe that the .bin extension implies it's not a regular mi4 file (ie has to be decrypted).
