#rockbox log for 2006-12-28

00:01:28linuxstb1) Rockbox has no support for ELF; 2) Rockbox hasn't borrowed anything from Linux (except the low-level ipod hardware drivers from IPL); 3) ffmpeg is a nightmare to port to Rockbox due to it's monolithic nature; 4) Rockbox implements a lot of POSIX.
00:02:35Lars_Gso final .rock files are not linked to ELF format...
00:02:35linuxstbI mean codecs from ffmpeg are a nightmare to extract out of ffmpeg (at least for me...)
00:03:13linuxstbNo, .rock files are pre-linked binary globs with (I believe) a small Rockbox-specific header.
00:05:09Lars_GI should really read some rockbox kernel soon
00:06:45linuxstbThere's hardly anything to read...
00:06:48 Quit Strath (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
00:07:43amiconnlinuxstb: Yes, and the header is just 20 bytes.
00:08:58amiconnOne id specifying the type (plugin or codec), the target id (soon to be replaced with the 4-letter id), the plugin api version, the load address, end address, and entry point
00:09:39amiconnThe load address is there just for comparison, to avoid loading a plugin to an address it wasn't linked for
00:10:54amiconnThe end address includes the bss, so that the binary doesn't need to contain it

00:33:41ydofound the bug!
00:33:50tical2klets just say its been the best christmas ever :-/
00:34:01ydohad a suspicion
00:34:11tical2kwhat was it?
00:34:23ydoany developer here to remember it?
00:34:48sidI tried two different computers and my 5g video ipod doesn't seem to be able to take a charge.
00:34:50dpassen1They can always view it in the log.
00:35:06spugpost it on flyspray
00:35:09spugand refer to the log
00:35:12sidIs this thing a brick?
00:35:12spugi guess
00:35:26tehsmosid: can it take a charge from the original apple firmware?
00:35:34sidit wouldn't take a charge in the proprietary firmware, or rockbox
00:35:42sidtehsmo: no
00:35:52sidAnd the usb port works, because I transfered music with it yesterday
00:36:12ydotical2k: I've been renaming a directory and had the option "resume on startup" enabled, must have something to do with that, cause I rebooted 4 times and changed songs, and when I played that other song it hang.. so I disabled that option and suddenly I could play songs again..
00:36:37tical2kyeah... sounds like a problem
00:36:53sidtehsmo: You think it's a brick? or maybe bad cable?
00:37:01Lars_Gsad rockbox uses OF for usb connection
00:37:15ydoI'll post the bug tomorrow, need my sleep
00:37:18tehsmosid: could be either, bad cable is perhaps more likely
00:37:25Lars_GOtherwise we could code a phone-home system on rockbox for cases like tical2k's
00:37:40tical2kheh yeah that be awesome
00:37:56sidtehsmo: It's brand new, I opened the box yesterday.
00:38:07Lars_GWorse it, the guy all needs to do is upgrade it on any machine to be doen with rockbox.
00:38:26tehsmothen in either case you could just rma it
00:38:36sidtehsmo: Even if I put rockbox on it?
00:38:44ydo there it is.. I'm using daily Dec 22 I think
00:38:44Lars_GWhen my Ipaq was robbed at gunpoint from me, i had the dream that I could find the only Ipaq being sold on my country with Linux on it instead of WinCE, but I never found it anyhow
00:39:01Lars_Grockbox can't brick an iPod
00:39:11tical2kits a shame apple doesnt seem to care... i mean i registered my ipod... and obviously they can see the serial number
00:39:18Soapsid: are you familiar with the bathtub curve that hardware failures follow?
00:39:22tical2kbut they wont do anything about it
00:39:28sidSoap: no
00:39:33Lars_GWorst case scenario, can't you boot the iPod in disk mode and install the OF back to it
00:39:45tehsmosid: you can always use itunes to restore it if you're worried about apple not liking the rockbox
00:40:05Lars_Gtical2k: Dude, sorry to say so, but do you have any idea of the size of the logistics required in following every stolen ipod?
00:40:05sidtehsmo: Not if the battery is dead...
00:40:07tehsmooh yeah
00:40:09tical2kyeah :-)
00:40:19tical2ki mean... cell phone companies do it though
00:40:23Lars_Gsid: tell me something, when you hook it, the thing keeps starting and rebooting constantly?
00:40:53Lars_Gtical2k: Cell phone companies can just enter an imei number in their database, and make it blocked in all their network in minutes
00:41:02sidLars_G: no, I hook it up...and it just doesn't seem to take a charge. in rockbox or apple_os, it doesn't reboot constantly.
00:41:02SoapNot that I have been following your plight, sid, but "just out of the box" = high failure rate, not low as you were arguing.
00:41:12Lars_Gsid: Yup then it's possibly damaged.
00:41:29sidIn rockbox when I plug it in, I get a picture of a usb cable end, then I get a faded battery with a lighnining bolt on it..but it doesn't work.
00:41:49Lars_Gsid: I asked because sometimes when battery goes critically low, I've seen ipods start and reboot constantly when hooked, not recharching. in these cases you need to force it shut or restart it,... if I remember wel
00:42:45Lars_GSoap: Not really in this case it would be a high failure rate if the ammount of units that present the failure out of the box or latter are a sizeable percentage of the production.
00:42:45sidIs it heard of to buy a new iPod that doesn't take a charge?
00:42:56 Join muesli- [0] (n=muesli_t@
00:43:25SoapLars_G: Not what I was arguing. I was simply stating that brand new hardware has a higher failure rate than month old hardware.

00:45:16Soapoh sid.
00:45:24tical2khaha yeah
00:45:26sidIf I'm in the middle of the dd command and it shuts off..heh then it will be a brick
00:45:29SoapOk sid, how long have you left it alone on charge?
00:45:34tical2krockbox on the 5g runs great
00:45:44DanielFaulknorthats all i wanted to hear :)
00:45:47Lars_Gsid: Nah ipods don't brick, afaik (correct me if I'm wrong room)
00:46:07tical2ksometimes when searching for a song when playing it'll pause for a little bit
00:46:07sidSoap: I left it an hour on charge in apple_os just a little while ago.
00:46:07tical2kbut... thats the only snag i've run into
00:46:07linuxstbsid: It will only be a brick if it powers-off part-way through updating the flash. Which Rockbox doesn't do.
00:46:07sidOn a usb port I used to transfer music to the thing last night.
00:46:07Soapthen leave it alone for 5 hours.
00:46:07Soapthen we will talk options.
00:46:07DanielFaulknortical2k: you have one?
00:46:07Lars_Gsid: Since the rom bootloader is enough to start disk mode. from which the apple bootloader and OF can be installed
00:46:11tical2koh! and pacman is awesome :-)
00:46:17tical2kup until...... today
00:46:18Genre9mp3Lars_G: ...or compile it but returning error on target... but anyways since it's a PP target I bet it works fine, just want to be sure before replying to a post
00:46:20Soapsid, plug it in, and walk out of the room.
00:46:27tical2kfor about a year i ran rockbox on it
00:46:29Soapsid: and I'll see you in five hours.
00:46:30sidSoap: It's off...just plug it in now?
00:46:38DanielFaulknortical2k: no problems apart from the pausing?
00:46:40Soapplug it in, chill, wait 5 hours.
00:46:48Lars_Gsid: And, plug it in to the computer directly. Not am USB hub
00:46:50sidSoap: I don't need to try to turn it on or anything?
00:46:53DanielFaulknortical2k: im sold then :) ipod here i come...
00:47:06sidLars_G: yea, I'm plugging it into a usb port directly connected to the motherboard.
00:47:10tical2kand pausing, like i said was only when looking for a song when i was playing a song and didnt happen all the time
00:47:13Soapsid: plug it into a POWERED USB port, chill, see you in 5.
00:47:22Lars_Gtical2k: Sorry to make fun of it dude, i know it sucks, I've lived thorough it. but I'm trying to help you get over it.
00:47:28Soapdon't assume your port is powered, verify.
00:47:40tical2knah its no big deal... im gonna get another one... i think
00:47:46tical2kand i got my music backed up
00:47:48DanielFaulknortical2k: thanks :) i can live with a bit of pausing... playlists are always good
00:47:50SoapDanielFaulknor: 50% of apple battery life on the iPods!
00:47:51tical2kjust... sucks is all
00:47:53Lars_Gtical2k: :) good luck dude. :)

00:54:48Lars_Gand analyze differences. not in protocol itself but in bus use, cpu use, etc
00:54:57Lars_Geventually the problem should be pinpointed.
00:55:18linuxstbThat probably won't tell you what's going on inside the portalplayer chip itself though.
00:55:25Soapunless the problem is contained completely within the PortaPlayer "system on a chip"

00:55:37 Join Soader03 [0] (i=18caf221@gateway/web/cgi-irc/
00:55:39Lars_GYes if it's contained entirely there it's much much harder.
00:56:00SoapLars_G: unless you are offering to etch the casing off your PP chip?
00:56:11Lars_GSoap: not really needed.
00:56:20Soader03Hum, sorry, where is the irc channel for gigabeat?
00:56:31markuntry #gigabeat
00:56:37Soader03ok thanks
00:56:43Soap#gigabeat would be official, shouldn't it be ##gigabeat?
00:56:54scorchetechnically, yes
00:56:54markundon't know
00:57:04Lars_GSoap: if it's ENTIRELY contained inside the PortalPlayer IC, then I would think it safe to assume it comes from different behaviour, different behaviour with the same data (mp3s) on the chip means different configuration/initialization of the chip
00:57:07 Quit Soader03 (Client Quit)
00:57:15Lars_Gthen it's a matter of rev-enging the initialization process OF uses
00:57:37Lars_GWhich is easier said than done. but doable

01:05:57Lars_Gthere was a way to stop it
01:06:02Soader03don't answer me all at the same time, huh? just kidding
01:06:19Lars_GI dont' rememeber if it was to reset (menu+select) or shut down (leave play pressed)
01:06:43pixieLike shut down while its plugged in?
01:07:01linuxstbpixie: Yes, Rockbox currently can't detect the difference between a USB connection to a computer, and a USB connection to a wall charger. So in both cases it will reboot to disk mode. Disk mode will see there is no computer, and reboot to Rockbox....
01:07:29pixielinuxstb: Is there a way to deal with that?
01:08:19spugany developers here?
01:08:21linuxstbEither hold MENU as you insert the cable in Rockbox, or turn the hold switch on and reboot to the Apple firmware (assuming you're using the newest bootloader).

01:46:22scorcheJdGordon: yes, but i am a bit occupied atm...what did you need?
01:46:35Soaptical2k: it could, but since Disk Mode is a function of the flash, which isn't replaced by the rockbox bootloader, it would be easy to bypass.
01:46:45tical2kbut then again....
01:46:50tical2kthats what i was thinking

01:49:18topblokeo ok
01:49:22Soaptopbloke: the instructions for removal are on the install page.

01:50:59topblokeo right
01:51:10topblokebut u still need the original boot dump right
01:51:17tical2ksooo... is the flash changed whenever the ipod is reformatted?
01:51:31LloreanSoap: With the new install instructions, the ipodpatcher tool can just add or remove the bootloader without having to mess with backed up bootpartition.bins unless you do something REALLY wrong.
01:52:18sidlinuxstb: Yes there is a blank battery icon on the top right corner(blank meaning empty)
01:52:29linuxstbtical2k: No. And I would strongly recommend you forget about modifying the flash. We don't know enough about the ipods to initialise the hardware correctly ourselves, we rely on how the Apple bootloader in flash has set things up.
01:52:29Lloreantical2k: The flash is only changed when a program run on the iPod chooses to change it. For example, when you change iPod firmware versions, it updates itself. But if you replaced what was in it with your own code, it would never update itself again unless you wrote an iPod program that did it. Which would mean your code in flash has to be able to run iPod programs. If there's even one VERY small thing wrong with your code in flash, the iP

02:50:53tehsmohmm ..methinks rockbox needs more assert statements

02:53:59linuxstbFor example?
02:54:54tehsmowell, bookmark_play calls playlist_peek but doesn't check if it returns null
02:55:44tehsmogranted, it should probably never give it input that would do that, but I'm a fan of copious asserts
03:02:58linuxstbI don't think there are _any_ asserts in Rockbox (assuming you mean the assert() macro).
03:03:17tehsmothere aren't at the moment
03:03:27tehsmoas far as i know
03:04:25tehsmocurrently I'm using debug statements in place of asserts, because there's no good substitute for an assert function right now
03:06:09linuxstbYou could just implement assert(), as a macro which is only enabled for LOGF builds.
03:06:18tehsmoyeah, I might do that

05:37:22sidI have to discuss this with the mrs also, she's the one who made me keep it.
05:37:32Mouser_XHeh. Understandable.
05:37:32sidI wanted to return this crap and build a mythtv box.
05:37:44Nimdaesid: try reflashing the apple firmware and see if that corrects
05:38:02sidNimdae: I can boot with the apple_os firmware, and it still won't take a charge.
05:38:09Mouser_XAlso, I'm thinking about it. I found a pretty good deal on another site, so I might go for that ($170, though I don't know if it's refurbished or not).
05:38:21Nimdaei mean completely reflash it...use the apple updater
05:38:33sidI don't have any windows machines.
05:38:53Mouser_XHave you tried qemu?
05:38:54Nimdaeyou need windows for that?
05:38:59Mouser_XIt runs WinXP...
05:38:59sidI have to go to my aunt's apartment, then she's going to bug me about fixing her outlook or whatever crap is worng with her windows machine.
05:41:25sidSo if charging it hardware controlled... me putting rockbox on this 5g has nothing to do with it not functioning properly right?

05:42:54sidHow long do I hold select and menu for?
05:43:02Nimdaeuntil it starts booting
05:43:06sidI held it for 8 seconds, and it just booted rockbox after I was done.
05:43:19Nimdaeplug it in and see what happens?
05:43:33sidIt tells me "ok to disconnect"
05:44:05topblokemine does that when i eject it via windows
05:44:18topblokebut unil then it says do not disconnect
05:44:20Nimdaeyeah, but it shouldn't be doing that when plugging it in
05:44:29Nimdaemaybe the cable is bad?
05:44:48Mouser_XIt's getting power though.
05:44:58Mouser_XOtherwise, it wouldn't be running at all.]
05:44:59Nimdaedoesn't mean anything
05:45:09Mouser_XAt least, based on what sid has said already.
05:45:13Nimdaei can have an ethernet cable give me a link light, but not able to carry a signal

13:22:36AkatemikHi. Would anyone have an idea why my iRiver running rockbox mounts only in linux? If I attach it to a Windows computer I can see it in the device manager (even recognising that it has a fat partition) but it doesn't give it a drive letter.

13:23:17linuxstbWhich iriver?
13:23:49linuxstbHas it ever worked in Windows?
13:24:19GodEaterHow about if you right click on "My Computer", choose "Manage", and see if it shows up in "Disk Management" ?
13:24:27AkatemikMm, it has, but not sure with this particular firmware. I don't own windows machines, so I don't test it that often
13:24:35AkatemikGodEater: Yeah, that's where I see it
13:24:54AkatemikBut I can't access the files, as it doesn't "mount" it (whatever the term is in windows)
13:25:42GodEateryou should be able to use disk management to change it's drive letter
13:26:05 Quit Bjoern-Erik ("leaving")
13:26:08linuxstbI would look at it with fdisk in Linux, and see if there's anything odd with the partition table that may be causing Windows problems. Have you ever reformatted or repartitioned it?
13:26:37Akatemiklinuxstb: I have, in linux
13:26:42AkatemikGodEater: Let's see...
13:27:30GodEaterassuming you have only one hard drive in your PC, that should show as "Disk 0" in Disk Management
13:27:44GodEaterthen the iRiver should show as "Disk 1" when you plug it in

13:29:07AkatemikI was looking into that same interface earlier, and couldn't find a way to mount it
13:29:22AkatemikYes, it shows it. And says the correct size and that it's FAT
13:29:37GodEaterthis wouldn't be a work PC would it ?
13:29:41ydoregarding my issue #6215, neither the audiothread nor the playlistthread seems to be running..
13:29:46AkatemikNo, my father's laptop
13:29:53GodEaterhis personal one ?
13:30:10GodEaterand you're logged into it as a "Administrator" account ?
13:30:35GodEaterwell that pretty much rules out a policy that's in effect I guess
13:30:37AkatemikThe hardware is ok, as I am able to mount it when booted into Knoppix
13:30:38GodEaterwould be most unusual
13:31:04linuxstbAkatemik: What is the partition type for the FAT partition?
13:31:25AkatemikThe windows does say that "This device can work better if put into USB 2.0", but that can't be it, can it?
13:31:31linuxstbIf you've set it to the default (Linux), then Linux wouild probably still mount it as FAT, but Windows will ignore it.
13:32:00Akatemiklinuxstb: Hmm, good question. Is there a way to find out in windows, or do I boot into Knoppix?
13:32:03linuxstbAkatemik: Yes, that message is just nonsense. I get it on Windows PCs with no USB 2.0 ports...
13:32:25GodEateryeah it should still mount, you'll just get a sucky transfer rate

15:05:58*linuxstb can't cope with Mac OS X taking 3 minutes to mount his ipod...
15:06:01KyleXOk, back
15:06:20*daurnimator can't cope
15:07:37JdGordonydo: I dont understand that bug.. does it crash if autoresumeing on boot if the file its trying to load was the one deleted? or even when restarting playback from the tree with the last file played the one delted?
15:09:17ydoJdGordon: if autoresume and the file is deleted it tries to play that file and fails.. and then.. if you choose another file, it "hangs"
15:10:20daurnimatorhas anyone investigated the zune?
15:11:25ydoJdGordon: it opens the new file, tries to load the codec, but read:ing with size=0, so there's an endless loop
15:11:45ydoJdGordon: have you read the comments I've made?
15:12:31JdGordonso why not just put a check i read() or before that call for copy_n == 0?
15:12:49ydoand set it to like 1000? :)
15:13:01ydothats what I did in gdb..
15:13:38JdGordonif (copy_n < 0) rc = -1; else rc = read(...) ...
15:13:39ydothe question is.. why is conf_filechunk == 0
15:13:58JdGordonOH! you want to fix the actual problem.....
15:15:29JdGordonpondlife or JhMikeS prob would be able to help there....
15:15:33ydothere are no calls to codec_configure_callback which set conf_filechunk before loading of the codec has been done

16:12:04ferrarienzoi put it in E:\games\doom
16:12:07LloreanDerPapst: What did you need from the removed thread.
16:12:09linuxstbferrarienzo: In the root of your ipod (the same place as Calender, Notes, .rockbox, rockbox.ipod, create a folder called "Games". Inside that folder, create another folder called "Doom", and then put the wads in there.
16:12:12DerPapstLlorean: i need the informations about the mbr "hack"

16:14:36DerPapstsomeone dumped the flash rom on his 80GB iPod but he only was able to mount a ram partition and so he couldn't transfer it to the HD.
16:14:40linuxstbYes, because we can't distribute the Doom wads.
16:14:54GodEaterDerPapst: the thread won't help there
16:14:58ferrarienzook i have doom1.wad
16:15:04DerPapstMaybe with the modified mbr he can write the image to the hd
16:15:08ferrarienzothats all i ahve
16:15:12GodEaterDerPapst: doubt it
16:15:20LloreanDerPapst: Nobody was ever able to get any writing to work on the 80gb, I believe.

16:16:12ferrarienzocould u give a like to the rockdoom.wad i never went to the wiki page
16:16:32LloreanDerPapst: "Meh" is irrelevant. I've moved the thread away because none of the information it contained was relevant to the 80gb effort, really, and all the irrelevant information would mislead users. I very deeply do not want that information showing up in searches.
16:16:37GodEaterDerPapst: we're working on the assumption at the moment that the only way to get the rom off the 80GB is via audio
16:16:40markunferrarienzo: then what is "< ferrarienzo> it only has one link and only one wad" all about??
16:16:41linuxstbDerPapst: The mbr has nothing to do with the 80GB problems. Rockbox and IPL can't access the disk at all, not even to read the MBR.
16:17:26ferrarienzowhat you mean??? the page i was on had one link to download a wad nothing else
16:17:42linuxstbThe MBR is the first sector on the disk, so if we could read that, we should be able to read any sector.
16:17:57ferrarienzook thankyou
16:18:06DerPapstand "meh" wasn't meant to disgust you. sorry
16:18:07Lloreanferrarienzo: The manual specifically says to go to that page.
16:19:01DerPapstit was more something like "too bad that this will not work."
16:19:03Lloreanlinuxstb: What we need is a 5.5G 80gb owner who also has any other 1.8" drive based device.
16:19:28GodEaterLlorean: such as ?
16:19:34LloreanGodEater: : In theory all they'd have to do is put the other 1.8" drive in, load up Rockbox, and dump the ROM contents using that.
16:19:40*DerPapst has a 40GB 3G iPod and a 80GB 5.5G iPod
16:20:13LloreanI mean, in theory the 1.8" drive swap should work as long as an iPod-appropriate partition table is created, right?
16:20:13ferrarienzoand does anyone know how to install ipod linux on 5.5g ipod sorry for asking
16:20:14GodEaterLlorean: so a 30GB 5.5 would do ?
16:20:39DerPapst ferrarienzo: wrong channel but yes
16:21:20LloreanGodEater: The shell would have to be an 80gb 5.5G's shell, with the drive from something else. Another key would be to make sure the AUPD image is either not present, or marked as already flashed so that it doesn't overwrite the ROM. Preferably the only thing in the bootpartition portion should be a third party bootloader, or third party firmware, with no original apple content at all.
16:21:21DerPapst ferrarienzo: but iPL works only on HFS+ formatted iPods yet. so better don't do it
16:21:34LloreanDerPapst: This is untrue.
16:21:48LloreanDerPapst: iPL also works if you create an ext2 or ext3 partition to store the filesystem in.
16:22:02GodEaterLlorean: so you're assuming that it *is* the drive that's broken
16:22:13DerPapstThe kernel has problems mounting the ext2 partitiion
16:22:17LloreanGodEater: No, I'm developing a means to verify that it is the drive that's broken.
16:22:23LloreanDerPapst: It didn't in the past. Is this new?
16:22:23 Nick Everybody|away is now known as Everybody (
16:22:33LloreanDerPapst: Or is this a 5.5G only thing?
16:22:42DerPapstit's a 5.5G thing only
16:22:48linuxstbLlorean: I don't think IPL's 5.5g support is as complete as Rockbox yet.
16:22:50LloreanQuite strange.
16:22:56GodEaterLlorean, but if it's not the drive that's broken - then you still wouldn't be able to write the ROM image out
16:23:09GodEatereven if you swapped in another perfectly good 1.8" drive
16:23:56LloreanGodEater: Yes, but at that point we know that we need to start looking for actual hardware differences between the 30gb and the 80gb, beyond just the drive.

16:25:12GodEaterI don't really want to scratch it to buggery with a screwdriver...
16:25:15DerPapstmaybe a defunct ipod (with an intact HD) will work
16:25:35DerPapstthere are some pages that describe how to open a 5G
16:25:39GodEaterDerPapst: don't know many places that sell those
16:26:01GodEateryeah - but I want to know from someone who's actually done it and see what the thing looks like afterwards
16:26:03DerPapstebay at least ;) but they are still very expensive
16:26:08LloreanThe concern then becomes "Can you replace drives in iPods easily"
16:26:22GodEaterwell it needs to be a ZIF drive too doesn't it ?
16:26:24LloreanI'd suggest looking things up to see if people have swapped out drives in iPods, and any special considerations need to be made.

16:35:57*GodEater is already googling incase anyone wondered
16:36:08ferrarienzoits just not the same as the apple os
16:36:19ferrarienzosomeone should add video support in rockbox
16:36:26topblokei hate the apple os
16:36:32Genre9mp3ferrarienzo: 120GB 1,8' HDD? I don't think so..
16:36:42topblokestupid white screen all the time
16:36:47ferrarienzoi modded mine so it looks killer
16:36:53ferrarienzoits blue
16:36:57topblokeno way!
16:37:01ferrarienzoyeah but rockbox is grey
16:37:02Lloreanferrarienzo: Yes, it's not the same as the Apple OS. Instead of being restricted to using software to make transfers, and only being able to play a limited selection of formats, we have significantly more freedom, and a much wider feature set.
16:37:26Lloreanferrarienzo: And Rockbox offers including themeing features so you can very drastically change how it looks.
16:37:31topblokenah rockbox is great but just needs faster boot and longer battery life
16:37:31ferrarienzofeature set yeah wheres the video support???
16:37:34bluey-don`t forget the bigger geek factor when using rockbox :)
16:37:44Genre9mp3and rockbox isn't grey.... it's whatever you want it to be
16:37:44Lloreanferrarienzo: PluginMpegplayer.
16:37:44ferrarienzoyeah i used ipw
16:37:51ferrarienzoand i modded the strings
16:38:05topblokecan u make the screen black?
16:38:05Lloreanferrarienzo: But, Rockbox is a MUSIC player, so the improved feature set relates to the MUSIC features primarily. Duh.
16:38:14LloreanThis is not the channel for discussing how to mod the retail firmware.
16:38:15ferrarienzoshit maybe im think ROCKBOX ALL DA WAY NOW!!!
16:38:46LloreanBut seriously, complaining about Rockbox because you don't actually know what it can do is kinda silly.
16:38:57ferrarienzoyeah sorry
16:39:09ferrarienzois ipl better than rockbox?
16:39:20tehsmotopbloke: gnupod can transfer video, I don't know about pictures
16:39:28topblokenah rockbox owns it
16:39:41*tehsmo has several videos on his 5G added with gnupod - google techtalks ftw. :)
16:39:49ferrarienzoso can rockbox do the gameboy aswell??
16:39:52topblokeis that only for linux?
16:39:56Lloreanferrarienzo: iPL has a lot of features relating to gaming, and other software, but Rockbox has much better in the way of music features.
16:40:02tehsmoI think so
16:40:07tehsmobut it uses perl scripts to do its work
16:40:13tehsmoso it could probably run under cygwin as well
16:40:18DerPapstdon't compare rockbox with iPL they have different goals
16:40:23LloreanDerPapst: Very different.
16:40:26tehsmoall it needs is for the ipod to be mounted somewhere
16:40:32ferrarienzoif u want music feature use apple os i dnt understand whats the diff between applemusic and rockbox music
16:40:39tehsmothen it edits its own xml database file (that it can generate from the iTunesDB)
16:40:50tehsmothen when you're done adding stuff it converts the xml format to iTunesDB
16:40:54DerPapstand btw: i don't like this page
16:41:08tehsmoso it doesn't do anything that should be linux-specific, really
16:41:08Lloreanferrarienzo: Can you play Ogg/Vorbis in the Apple OS? Do you have Replaygain? A five-band parametric equalizer? Dithering control? Crossfeed?
16:41:08DerPapstthe 3 last points
16:41:25topblokeand FADEout too
16:41:43Lloreanferrarienzo: Not to mention True Gapless, since the Apple version is *extremely* limited in how it works
16:41:53ferrarienzoohk thats allota shit
16:41:53bluey-rockbox > better features but apple os has the better gui :(
16:41:53DerPapsti always thought that there is no competition between those projects
16:42:16LloreanDerPapst: We don't consider there to be competition either.
16:42:19topblokei like the rockbox ui way better
16:42:23linuxstbSome users probably do though...
16:42:23ferrarienzoyeah im kinda upset that rockbox has a plain gui hope they do something bout it
16:42:35LloreanDerPapst: It is a wiki page, so anyone can edit it. Feel free to try to make it more balanced, perhaps simply showing what both have to offer rather than how it is now.
16:42:39DerPapsti would like to see the 3 last points removed.
16:42:40ferrarienzothen ill be in rockbox my whole ipod life
16:42:52topbloketry a theme
16:42:54LloreanDerPapst: The last point is true, though, isn't it?
16:43:03Genre9mp3ferrarienzo: you can do something about the gui: change font, colours... insert a backdrop picture
16:43:03DerPapstit is
16:43:05ferrarienzothat just changed the font
16:43:10bluey-that won`t change the gui, just mask it a bit
16:43:13Lloreanferrarienzo: Remember, Rockbox is created by the users, for the users, feel free to improve the GUI all you want.
16:43:13GodEaterLlorean: what are the limitations on Apple's gapless support of which you speak Llorean ?
16:43:13DerPapstmaybe.. not shure
16:43:21linuxstbBut aren't all the points true?
16:43:24ferrarienzobackdrop?/? how do i do that?
16:43:56topblokeapple tries to analyze every song for hours for gapless
16:43:59LloreanGodEater: I was led to understand that it didn't work reliably with MP3, and was based on a post-encoding scan of the files.
16:44:03DerPapstsure but but this poject has a lot more devs than iPodlinux
16:44:08GodEaterseems to work fine with my albums
16:44:09ydoargh.. these start_play flags are driving me nuts
16:44:14topblokeyeah it scans the files all day
16:44:20GodEateronly did the scan once when I imported them into itunes
16:44:23linuxstbDerPapst: Yes, that's one of the points...
16:44:26GodEaterseems ok to me
16:44:29topblokei never even let it
16:44:42DerPapstand iPodLinux is for Ipods only so it is absolutly clear that it doesn't support that many players
16:44:52LloreanGodEater: The scan though is post-encoding. It'll eat a gap even if it's intentionally at the end of a song, making intentional gaps on mostly gapless albums vanish.
16:45:05LloreanDerPapst: So, your complaint is that 'These facts are true, but I don't like them'?
16:45:14DerPapstkind of
16:45:20ferrarienzohow do i inser a backdrop on rockbox?
16:45:22GodEatercan't say I've noticed that but I'll take your word for it Llorean :)
16:45:33Lloreanferrarienzo: Read... The... Manual.
16:45:36DerPapstit sound like a competition

16:46:55*DerPapst is afk
16:47:29LloreanDerPapst: Well, feel free to edit the page so that it reads in a way that sounds less competitive. Perhaps put in some strengths of iPodLinux, or a section such as "You should use Rockbox if you wish to..." and "You should use iPodLinux if you wish too..." helping to educate users as to better choose their firmware
16:47:53GodEateror, "You should use both if you really feel you must" ;)

17:02:32LloreanThe interesting thing is, the MK8010GAH is supposedly hardware identical to the MK8009GAH, but with Apple/Toshiba dual branding.
17:03:28LloreanThe site I read said the 8009 can be used in the iPod 5.5G, and I'm curious if the 8010 has a different model number simply because of the branding, or if there really is something more sinister about it.
17:03:48GodEateryou're getting suspicious in your old age :)
17:03:55GodEaterI don't see an 8009GAH there anyway
17:04:14GodEaterI'd have to get a smaller one - and was thinking of the 20GB - it's the cheapest, and has ample space for what we're intending
17:04:25LloreanI was just talking in general
17:04:29LloreanAnd the link you posted has the 8009
17:04:36Llorean IMtg100 
17:04:47LloreanNot available yet though
17:04:55GodEaterso it does
17:05:21GodEaterwow - it has the 100GB too :)
17:05:30GodEaternow there's an upgrade worth having
17:05:33LloreanOooh, hopefully that means an upcoming 50gb single platter.
17:05:38GodEaterwonder when it'll become available
17:05:44LloreanI would very much like to make my H120 into an H150
17:05:57Llorean50 provides just enough for music plus things I like to have available at a moment's notice.
17:06:18Soap50GB single platter in a case designed for dual platter = Bigger Battery!
17:07:23*Llorean still needs to get a new battery for his h120
17:07:23LearAh, nice to have a Cygwin that runs at a decent speed... :)
17:07:25GodEaterand the 100 is the same form factor as the 80 as well neat
17:07:39GodEaterI need one of those for my H140 too
17:07:45GodEaterit won't hold a charge at all anymore :(
17:08:01LearBtw, anyone built the sim successfully recently?
17:08:11GodEaterI built it last night
17:08:15GodEaterthat recent enough ?
17:08:26LloreanMy 120 holds charge just fine, though it's about 85% of the lifetime it originally had, I think
17:08:58GodEateroh lord - mine was there for a long time
17:09:00LearShould be. I get these strange compile errors though...
17:09:04GodEaterthen it just suddenly went to nothing
17:09:13GodEaterI'd get maybe 30 minutes out of it now
17:09:33GodEater192Kbps / VBR of similar quality MP3s

17:15:14GodEateranyone seen the specs for that yet ?
17:15:15ElfQrinso yes....learn is right
17:15:33DerPapstyou don't have to learn it. you can use ipodpatcher to extract it.

18:52:59GodEaterI think that's right though - they wouldn't change the reported number of sectors bit away from 512 byte sectors where they are currently as that would break backwards compatibility I think

18:53:49GodEateronly bit 0 of 106 is set
18:54:11GodEaterwhich means 2 ^ 0 logicals per physical
18:54:18GodEaterwhich means 1 to 1
18:54:30GodEaterthough WHY you'd say that is beyond me
18:57:07amiconnI'm reading this as that bit 0..3 define x, so x = 1, and 2^x = 2

19:53:34PaulPositionAre the .cfg files exported through 'manage settings->save .cfg file' (or whatever the actual name) complete, including default settings and such? Or are some things only added to it when you actively set them from the menu?
19:54:28PaulPosition(might have a try at writing some php stat page, it may help gauge good values for default settings..)

19:55:10GodEaterI couldn't bloody find them there - that site is an nightmare to navigate

21:56:46linuxstbI wouldn't say that's a show-stopper though. RoLo isn't very useful on the PP targets anyway at the moment.
21:57:05LloreanBut... but... it can load iPL... :-P
21:57:44linuxstbBut any ipl apps that use the COP probably don't work...
21:58:17dan_alinuxstb: I'm also not at the computer a lot at the moment.
21:58:42dan_aAnd getting the COP working properly will probably make RoLo useful...
22:01:21dan_aI take it that we're getting to the point where MpegPlayer needs the COP? There appear to be memory bandwidth issues (see amiconn's comments in the IRC log) - will those present a problem?
22:02:04 Join PaulPosition [0] (
22:02:20linuxstbdan_a: OK, no problem. And yes, proper COP handling should hopefully make RoLo useful.
22:02:20linuxstbI only asked because I'm working on audio in mpegplayer, and am about to try running the video thread on the COP. I'll just use the patches in the patch tracker then,
22:02:20linuxstbI'm surprised to be getting around 10fps with audio without using the COP.
22:02:37tehsmowee, new headphones. ^_^
22:02:40Llorean10fps on what target?
22:03:16linuxstbOn my Photo. 160x128 video was about 11.5fps, and 224x176 was around 8fps IIRC.
22:03:51LloreanI wonder how much COP will affect it.
22:03:56linuxstbdan_a: Yes, it definitely needs the COP. So we'll see how it helps...
22:06:40linuxstbdan_a: Should I use your kernel_on_cop_5.diff patch, or do you know if lostlogic's is better? All I need to do is start one of my own threads on the COP.
22:08:06dan_alinuxstb: Lostlogic's will be closer to what will be commited, I think (there is a bug in mine in that the current_tick is cached on each CPU - not good!)
22:08:41linuxstbOK. Do you know if it is safe to yield() in my thread?
22:08:47linuxstb(and/or sleep) ?
22:09:24tical2kalright.... im interested in helping out the video cause.... i know how to code.... but im unfamiliar with the rockbox development process anyone want to cue me in?
22:09:59dan_alinuxstb: As far as I know, it should be. I think it was the current_tick bug that was causing problems there.
22:10:15linuxstbOK, I'll keep my yields there for now and see what happens.
22:10:44dan_aOn the subject of the COP, have you got any ideas for what we may want to use the FIQ for?
22:11:09linuxstbtical2k: There are lots of docs in the wiki. Start with compiling Rockbox yourself from source, and then dig in and start coding...
22:11:42tical2kcant seem to find the mpeg player in the cvs tree though haha
22:12:17linuxstbdan_a: Why would we want it for anything? You could move the audio FIQ handler to the COP, and that might free up a few more cycles on the main CPU, but probably nothing noticable.

22:55:16linuxstbGenre9mp3: No, this is specific to the PortalPlayer targets (ipods, H10 and Sansa). I've moved video playback to the second CPU core to free up the main CPU for audio.
22:55:33Genre9mp3ah, ok...

22:59:28linuxstbdan_a: My Photo is very sensitive anyway to CPU frequency scaling... But it seems that (randomly), some builds are more stable than others.
22:59:32linuxstbKingLevel: No.

22:59:41Everybodyyou said hi to me :D
23:00:29KingLevelheh.. hi there
23:00:45linuxstbGenre9mp3: Yes. Targets with only one core will just run all threads on the same CPU. But the problem on the Coldfire targets will be sharing the limited IRAM, which is needed to achieve anything like reasonable speeds.
23:01:01linuxstbKingLevel: Rockbox fails to access the disk, and no-one has yet worked out why.
23:02:02KingLevelgaaahh.. thats bad...
23:02:23Genre9mp3linuxstb: hmm.. what fps would you expect on h300? The retailOS does MPEG4(XVID) at 10fps. It would be great if it can beat that (even with "just" MPEG1/2)
23:02:44linuxstbGenre9mp3: I think it would be great if we could match it...

23:20:56Genre9mp3linuxstb: Is there a patch I could try to test this on H300?
23:21:05*Genre9mp3 obviously can't wait
23:21:16topblokeis there any progrma to make a playlist of all the songs on a player?
23:22:15bagawktopbloke: script time: find /mnt/dap -type f | grep .mp3 > playlist.m3u
23:22:27linuxstbGenre9mp3: No, it won't compile for Coldfire at the moment. I'll try and release a patch soon though.
23:22:27Soapthe "to prevent copying" theory on itunes doesn't hold water.
23:22:27topblokehow bout on windows
23:22:30linuxstb(or commit to CVS...)
23:22:41topblokeand will they be arranged aphabetically?
23:22:41SoapSince the file tags aren't touched, therefore you can copy them off and rename them based on their tags.
23:22:42Genre9mp3linuxstb: ok
23:23:19SoapIf they were /actively/ trying to prevent copying, they would remove the unneeded tags.
23:23:33bagawktopbloke: find /mnt/dap -type f | grep .mp3 | sort <some sort options> > playlist.m3u
23:23:51topblokeok but thats still linux
23:24:06Soapsimple answer is that the appleFW database works faster with uniform file names/paths.
23:24:07bagawktopbloke: will work under cygwin also :)
23:24:19KingLevellinuxstb: Are you one of the programmers?
23:24:33bagawktopbloke: sorry, do not know many windows utilities
23:24:39topblokewell maybe i should make an .exe for windows
23:24:46linuxstbKingLevel: I'm _a_ programmer... I'm not working on the 80GB though.
23:25:06linuxstbAlthough I've done a lot of work for the ipods in general.
23:25:32KingLevellinuxstb: ok
23:26:52KingLevellinuxstb: how long will it take? if you are - - - - > <- - - - this close?
23:27:50linuxstbKingLevel: It's impossible to say. No-one knows what the problem is, so it's a matter of investigating until a solution is found. It could be today, or it could be a year away...
23:28:05Soapless time than being −−-> <−−−−−− that close.

23:33:35linuxstbdan_a: But yes, apart from the CPU scaling issues, the cop patch seems to be working fine. My thread is yielding and sleeping and it seems happy. I'm just about to test it on my 5g (with cpu scaling enabled).

23:34:23Lloreanlinuxstb: CPU scaling issues?
23:35:21linuxstbAs usual, my Photo is freezing with cpu scaling enabled. The COP patch seemed to make the freezing happen more reliably.
23:35:43linuxstbI'm about to test on my 5g, and I would expect that to be fine.
23:36:11LloreanI know that the _6 cop patch worked completely reliably on my Nano at least, so the 5G should be I'd imagine

23:41:43sidThey wouldn't give me cash back or let me exchange without a receipt.
23:42:06tical2ki got a bestbuy reciept... whats it worth to you :-) haha j/p
23:42:26sidtical2k: What state?
23:42:37tical2kdoes it matter?
23:42:50sidyes, because how do I get it from you. heh
23:42:59tical2ki can scan it... if you can make it looke believable
23:43:08tical2ksay... i sent it to you in the mail... but the date might give it away
23:43:17tical2kbeing... i got it today
23:43:18sidWhat is the date for it?
23:43:39tical2kwhat state are you in?
23:43:44sidNew York
23:44:05sidI have the receipt from shopbnc
23:44:17sidBut from what I hear they're a royal pain in the ass to exchange/return stuff to.
23:44:31sidSo I'm trying to rip off a mega-store first, like Walmart or Target, Bestbuy etc
23:44:49tical2kwell... i guess its feasible to tell them that you bought it from a store in NC before a flight it broke on flight and you had your family fax/scan you the reciept
23:45:18sidyea, that's not a bad idea
23:45:23sidtical2k: scan it if you want
23:45:41tical2kwell... i dunno.. because if my ipod breaks... im pretty sol haha
23:45:57sidYou can use the same receipt twice
23:46:06tical2kim pretty sure they might track the order #s on reciepts?
23:46:16sidI doubt it
23:46:26sidThat's seems too sophisticated for a mega-corp
23:46:42*linuxstb wonders if these kinds of discussions belong in #rockbox, which is logged...
23:46:56tical2kin otherwords.. NO
23:47:20Soaptarget has unique transaction IDs on every receipt.
23:48:11tical2ki wouldnt doubt best buy does too
23:48:18sidI'll email my local [GNU]/Linux Users Group mailing list, and ask if anyone bought a 30 gig ipod video..and if so to bring their receipt
23:48:56sidThey lady at Walmar almost let me exchange it
23:49:12tical2ktry circuit city...
23:49:14sidShe was close, but she thought about it again and then asked her co-worker if it was allowed...and that person said no you need receipt.
23:49:29***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
23:49:48sidhmm, is it me..or is down?
23:50:30sidThey only have one ip in their dns pool( ), I guess their website doesn't get that much traffic?
23:50:36Soapdespite myself being earlier complicit in this conversation, it has drifted way the bleep off topic
23:50:42sidI need their return policy info

23:52:03LloreanNot exactly a huge surprise though. ;)
23:52:09Soapbenchmark at 320x240 (though I hate to think)
23:52:35linuxstbI'll have to download the file... I can't remember what it is.
23:52:55Soapnot on my accord.
23:53:58linuxstbIt's no problem, downloading is free...
23:54:22linuxstbIt can play the 224x128 version of elephant's dream at the full 24fps though...
23:54:42PaulPositionlinuxstb - Will you guys post some patches on the tracker and wait a few days or would you/dan/barry/lostlogic testing it be enough for you to skip looking for other's tests?
