00:23:27Lars_Glinuxstb: What do you think, would an ipod have enough juice to play mods?
00:23:50linuxstbI don't know enough about mods, but I thought there was already a patch for it?
00:24:19Lars_Ghmmm I'll check
00:25:11Araknislinuxstb: can the Rockbox bootloader also load iPodLinux?
00:25:34linuxstbYes. Put "linux.bin" (the Linux kernel) on your FAT32 partition, and hold PLAY whilst booting.
00:26:01linuxstbYou can also "rolo" it, if you convert it to .ipod format using the tools/scramble tool.

00:28:04Lars_Gto be sincere I've not tried IPL because my nano's memory is small. and rockbox makes me so happy as a DAP
00:28:08Araknislinuxstb: But I thought iPodLinux was on a ext2 partition not on a FAT32 partition
00:28:27linuxstbThe kernel can be wherever you want it to be.
00:28:31Lars_GShawn_K: Yes and someone... I think linuxstb told me rockbox's posix anyhow
00:28:36BagderAraknis: the kernel isn't loaded by linux itself

00:29:28Shawn_KLars_G: well, half of the code is tied to I would assume so anyways :P
00:29:34AraknisSo will I need to reformat to change bootloaders and reinstall iPodLinux and Rockbox?
00:30:00Bagder"half of the code is tied to iPodlinux" ?
00:30:17Bagderhalf of what code?
00:30:28Shawn_KBadger: the bootloaders and all and cross-compatable...just alot of the ideas are similar to each

00:35:59 Quit muesli__ (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
00:36:42LloreanAraknis: If you use the scramble tool on the .bin file to make it a .ipod file, you can just click it from inside Rockbox to load iPL
00:37:04LloreanYou still need the ext2 partition to exist, but to get linux to start you just click the linux.ipod file on your fat32 partition
00:38:47AraknisHow do I change bootloaders from Loader2 to Rockbox
00:40:03LloreanYou'll need to remove Loader2 first, which will require you kept your bootpartition.bin
00:40:31bluebrotherrolo = "ROckbox LOader". It loads a different firmware (usually a different RB version)
00:41:22JimmyScan you remove the original iPod firmware and store it as a backup and install Rockbox only?
00:41:27AraknisLlorean: does a "rolo" waste more iPod resources (memory, etc) because Rockbox is loaded or does it release everything switching to iPodLinux
00:41:49linuxstbIt reboots into IPL- so Rockbox disappears.
00:42:06linuxstb(a soft-reboot)
00:42:15 Join perldiver [0] (
00:42:40AraknisDoes it matter how I installed iPodLinux, you have the choice of shrinking the firmware or shrinking the Fat32 Partition
00:42:42linuxstbAlthough it's not very well tested - all I (and Llorean) have tested is booting a kernel up to the point where it fails to mount the rootfs because we don't have one installed.
00:43:37LloreanI'm actually betting on it working though. No more than hunch, mind you, but it seems it ought to.
00:43:50LloreanJimmyS: Yes.
00:43:55 Join moixa [0] (
00:43:57linuxstbAraknis: You could try the following with ipodpatcher - "ipodpatcher N -r bootpartition.bin" (to make a backup of your current install). Then "ipodpatcher -a bootloader-ipodXXXX.ipod".

00:45:17Araknislinuxstb: do I need bootloader-color.bin from the kernel_on_cop_6.diff patch page?
00:46:01linuxstbAraknis: No - use the links (ipodpatcher and bootloader-ipodcolor.ipod) from the IpodInstallationBeta wiki page (or the manual).
00:46:29linuxstbThe wiki page will be better (until the next manual is built tomorrow).
00:47:04linuxstbOr if you have a development environment, just compile yourself.
00:48:01AraknisWhat if I want more than one podzilla does the Rockbox bootloader handle this? That is what I liked about Loader2 I could load more than one podzilla, Apple's Firmware, etc.
00:48:30Araknislinuxstb: I have been trying the VMWare development image
00:49:00linuxstbAraknis: No, the Rockbox bootloader doesn't support the Loader2 arguments thing.
00:49:09Araknislinuxstb: one thing I have noticed is that mpegplayer craches in the sim

01:02:30Araknis-AwayYes but I can not istall it now
01:02:40LloreanAraknis-Away: That would be feedback on the patch, so yes, it's valid to post that there. But out of curiosity, why is there any reason to expect any non-Rockbox bootloader to work with Rockbox? The problem isn't with Kernel on Cop, it's with Loader2 not doing things properly
01:02:56JimmySwhat on earth
01:02:56linuxstbWhen you can, it's here:
01:03:06JimmySit's saying that my iPod isn't an iPod
01:03:18LloreanIt's not any part of Rockbox's responsibility to maintain compatibility with non-Rockbox software, is it?
01:03:30linuxstbPatch is here as well:
01:03:32LloreanJimmyS: ipodpatcher?
01:03:51linuxstbJimmyS: What did you do to it?
01:04:06Araknis-AwayLlorean, iPodLinux has instructions for booting into RockBox
01:04:19linuxstbJimmyS: And what command are you running?
01:04:22Lars_Glinuxstb: Each time I see you talk I read "linuxstd"
01:04:29JimmySmy iPod, well I just restored the original firmware from the iPod linux installer
01:04:59LloreanAraknis-Away: So what? If ipodlinux has instructions, they should update them to say "This doesn't work with coprocessor builds"?
01:05:01Araknis-AwayLlorean: I have also seen many tutorials on the web to load both iPodLinux and Rockbox by installing iPodLinux first and unzipping the Rockbox zip to the ipod
01:05:11JimmyS./ipodpatcher /dev/sdc2 -r bootpartition.bin
01:05:19Lars_GAraknis-Away: why is it so hard for you to beleive the rockbox guys about this?
01:05:26LloreanIf I write instructions on how to boot into windows from a piece of hardware I made, should Microsoft be forced to then adapt to any future changes I make to my hardware?
01:05:28linuxstbJimmyS: Use /dev/sdc
01:05:44JimmySum, okay, if you're sure
01:05:50linuxstbI wrote ipodpatcher...

01:06:28LloreanAraknis-Away: Again, Loader2 is NOT part of Rockbox. Just because it could do that in the past doesn't mean it'll always be able to, as THEY have to keep it up to date if they want it to work.

01:10:07akjdfdI have an ipod mini 2g and read about rockbox it seems great, but i wanted to make sure that my itrip will still work any ideas?
01:10:07LloreanJimmyS: No, you can actually load a rockbox.ipod there instead of a bootloader.ipod, but then you have to replace it every time you update Rockbox.
01:10:10LloreanLars_G: Untrue.

01:10:26 Nick akjdfd is now known as smes (n=jdskf@
01:10:49LloreanLars_G: On the iPods, you can put a Rockbox.ipod in the bootpartition rather than a bootloader, if you know for absolute certainty you don't want to boot the Apple OS. The only downside is you have to repeat the step every time you update your build
01:10:52Lars_GLlorean: hmm? afaik OF's loader can't load rockbox
01:10:53LloreanIt does result in faster boot times though
01:11:04Lars_GAh ok.

01:36:55Shawn_KLlorean: ok, thank you
01:37:00Lars_Gmidkay: Ah well, I'll skip big part of it, it's just some drama. Thanks a lot.
01:37:28Shawn_KLlorean: after messing with COP alot, I feel there must be bottlenecking going on, I want to disable that and see if it helps
01:37:33midkayLars_G: sure. maybe you can hunt out the (very few) posts by the leader trio if you want (daniel stenberg, linus nielsen feltzing and bjorn stenberg)
01:37:40gotthardtI looked at the code quickly and saw the size and position changes for laryouts for screens - if that is what you mean
01:37:59pixelmagotthardt: I think RedZZR implemented additional x-coordinate defines
01:38:00Lars_Gmidkay: Daniel's post was clear and concise enough, that's all I needed
01:38:11LloreanShawn_K: It helps a little bit, but the scheduler is not the whole problem. I can still make audio skip when it's alone on the second core, which implies that somehow the audio thread is being held up by something other than the scheduler.
01:38:24LloreanShawn_K: Sorry, when the codec thread is alone on the second core.
01:38:24gotthardtpixelma: ok - so do you have a patch? or?
01:38:26midkayLars_G: gotcha :)
01:38:52JimmySgrrrr, ffs
01:39:13JimmySit's just I've done that
01:39:13JimmySand it's not working
01:39:18pixelmaI wouldn't need them anymore with this layout... but for the highscore list I cannot simply comment that define out - it's used later somewhere
01:39:47LloreanJimmyS: Most 'Themes' included with Rockbox *just* change the font, within the menus. If even that.
01:39:50pixelmagotthardt: I could prepare one for you
01:39:55LloreanThe WPS is what will look different.
01:40:48Shawn_KLlorean: yeah, I still want to disable the scheduler and see how much it helps w/ my builds
01:41:06Lars_GThe trick is very simple, look at the themes gallery, if it has a screenshot of the WPS only, most surely only the WPS screen changes
01:41:17Lars_Gif there are shots of the file list, then that changes noticeably too
01:41:24Shawn_KLlorean: anyways, I can't seem to find the define for it....config-ipodvideo..h is what I am looking at
01:41:42LloreanIt may be in the main config.h then
01:41:53linuxstbgrep is your friend.
01:41:53LloreanIt's... I think HAVE_PRIORITY_SCHEDULING maybe?
01:42:09LloreanYeah, I grepped for it last time I needed it, but I had someone to tell me what to grep for.
01:42:24pixelmagotthardt: pm
01:42:29LloreanI think #define HAVE_PRIORITY ought to come up with a single result being the one you want
01:42:40Shawn_KLlorean: ok, that helps...I'll do a search

01:57:51AngryYou mentioned howfast the adc_scan reads... I am thinking about making something like a smoot on ten values and grab the result of this ten adc values. Do you think that would work or are this too much values and lead to a delay

04:22:52debauched_slothon linux this is all very easy. on windows, you can use cygwin or setup a virtual machine

08:20:08LloreanYeah, I tried lowering it down to 128 for Nano. These were TV encodes, so the quality wasn't great anyway, and 128 is actually watchable though compression artifacts are noticeable even on the tiny screen.
08:20:22LloreanBut I had a goal of fitting 5 seasons of a TV show on a 4gb Nano, I wasn't too concerned with visual quality

08:22:24tychverI don't think I got very many artifects, although I only watched a couple of minutes of video and it was a very slow scene
08:22:42tychverit was encoded from a very high quality mpeg4
08:22:47Mouser_XLlorean: Are there plans (at all, obviously not soon) to add support for AVI, DivX, and XviD? I'm only curious, because it would save re-encoding a bunch of stuff. If not, no big deal. I was simply curious.
08:23:48tychversupport for avi as a container format wouldn't be too hard, mpeg 4 codecs (divx and xvid) are far too cpu heavy to contemplate on anything other than a gigabeat
08:24:25*Mouser_X is getting a Gigabeat...
08:25:32tychveryou shouldn't use AVI anyway
08:26:16tychverit causes a massive overhead and has compatability issues with more modern codecs

08:26:58atrusLlorean: also a good choice
08:27:23LloreanMouser_X: But I'm *sure* that one day there will be an MPEG-4 decoder for Rockbox. There's already a very little bit of a start at one in the tracker.
08:27:45tychvermatroska or "mp4" (mpeg4 part 14) are much better, hence why apple used mp4 containers for the ipod vidoe format
08:28:08 Join Mouser_X3 [0] (
08:28:36Lloreantychver: MP4 seems more likely in the end, for mpeg4 video.

08:29:36 Nick Mouser_X3 is now known as Mouser_X (
08:29:37tychveryeah that's very true, matroska is usually only used where subtitle support is essential
08:30:03Mouser_XBah. Thanks for the answers. I had to read the logs to see them though.
08:30:32LloreanBut you'll still probably need to convert your video
08:30:40Mouser_XI figured.
08:30:40LloreanEven if MPEG-4 support is added, you'd need to pre-scale it to your screen.
08:30:50Mouser_XAh, good point.
08:31:56Mouser_XAlso, instead of " :P " I should have used " ;) " as it doesn't imply haughtyness/rudeness as much.
08:32:02LloreanSo the only argument for MPEG-4 would become either better visual quality, or better battery life (less disk spinups even if more decode time)
08:32:10Mouser_X(Which :P can, depending how you want to interpret it.)
08:32:52Mouser_XWell, I can re-encode. I was just curious to know what I might able to expect in the future.
08:33:28Mouser_X*might be able
08:35:25LloreanI wouldn't be at all surprised to see MPEG-4 available in the future, but it might be years yet.

08:36:01Mouser_XUnderstandable. Rockbox has been in development for like, 4 years, hasn't it?
08:36:15Mouser_XAt least, I saw some dates going back to 2002, as I recall.
08:38:35LloreanI'm honestly not sure when it started.
08:39:01LloreanI consider myself one of "the new guys" still.
08:39:13LloreanI'm just deceptively not new seeming.
08:39:36Mouser_XWell, I've been in the channel for a week, maybe...
08:39:37LloreanPeople keep mistaking me for a developer. I need a mask that says /rockbox/not_a_developer/Llorean

08:40:00tychveryeah I thought you were a developer too
08:40:10Mouser_XI keep forgetting that you're not...
08:40:22LloreanI just listen a lot, and try very hard to remember.
08:41:15scorcheLlorean: you are just as good as one ;)
08:41:17Mouser_XSo, nearly 5 years...

08:41:51scorchemeh...who cares ;)

08:42:46scorchelooks like you need to step it up again
08:42:57LloreanOne day I'll write a plugin of some sort, or fix a bug and post a patch or something, just so I can say "Yes, I've done Rockbox programming."
08:43:24scorcheyou havent gotten a patch committed yet?
08:43:31Lloreanscorche: Not directly.
08:43:45Mouser_XWant to try your hand at porting a player to Rockbox?
08:43:51Mouser_XI've got a suggestion...
08:43:54LloreanUsually it goes "Llorean: Theres a problem on line X of Y.c" "Dev: Oh, let me go and fix that"
08:44:05Mouser_X(I don't actually expect you to take up that offer.)
08:44:08LloreanWhen like, someone asks me to try out a patch before they commit it.
08:44:22LloreanThough I did do part of the dice plugin
08:44:29scorcheeven i have a few patches that have been committed =/

08:46:55LloreanCan someone with commit access do me a favour in regards to the manual?
08:47:10*Llorean really should just ask for commit access by this point.
08:49:11scorchei would, but i dont really know tex
08:49:20Lloreanscorche: It should just be a matter of editing a line.
08:49:55LloreanThe ipod installation says ipodpatcher N -r (or -w or -a), but the uninstallation says ipodpatcher -w N bootpartition.bin, the -w and the N are in the wrong order, and the new ipodpatcher cares about the order.
08:50:45scorcheaye...but i still need a bit mroe
08:50:52*Llorean shrugs

10:04:24linux_jonesLlorean, no could i learn it?
10:04:43booyahstandard black and white
10:04:59booyahtried going into original firmware too. didnt work
10:05:06Lloreanbooyah: Explicitly, what color is the text itself, and what color is the backdrop?
10:05:15LloreanThere are two versions of the bootloader.
10:05:21LloreanOne is black text, very light blue background
10:05:25LloreanOne is white text, black background
10:05:29Llorean"Black and white" doesn't tell me which of those it is.
10:05:44booyahSorry, my bad. Its light blue
10:05:51LloreanSo, dark text, light background
10:05:53LloreanYou're using the old bootloader.
10:06:03LloreanFirst, hold Menu+Select to reboot, and *immediately* hold Play+Select.
10:06:17booyahRoger. doing that now
10:06:17LloreanIf it doesn't work the first time, try again, shifting your timing somewhat
10:06:22LloreanEventually you'll get to emergency disk mode
10:06:35LloreanThen, ipodpatcher N -w bootpartition.bin (I hope you kept that file, you were supposed to).
10:06:48LloreanThat should restore your iPod to its original status (boots apple OS, no rockbox)
10:07:07LloreanThen delete all the files you downloaded, as they're all old, and use the files here:
10:07:14booyahAhh, thanks. Now I just need to wait for the darn low batt screen to go away

10:08:28LloreanAnyway, everything should be fine. :)
10:08:31linux_jonesi cant even get thee thing working in linux
10:08:43LloreanThe big problem was just that 5.5Gs need the new install instructions.
10:09:04LloreanThe new method doesn't require ipod_fw at all
10:09:29JimmySI've been trying to download senab's build of rockbox, however when I download it, everytime unzip tells me it's not a zip archive even though it appears to be. Does anyone know what the problem could be?

10:10:13LloreanAll questions should be directed to the thread you received the build from, exactly as the forum guidelines say.
10:16:43lavidLlorean: as for the new beta FW, using the rockbox bootloader would allow people to use it (once it's supported by the bootloader) without bringing their sansa to a state where it can't be reflashed to a previous firmware

10:42:37RedZZRso the transparancy is not working properly.
10:42:45perldiverRedZZR probably
10:43:02perldiverbut why it moves stuff as well?
10:43:27RedZZRthat is odd, nothing seems to have changed in that area has it?
10:43:36tucozLlorean, hmm. ok. Isn't it more intuitive to increase (Scroll up) by scrolling it in a clockwise motion?
10:43:39lavidtucoz: yeah, i made an oops
10:43:47perldiveri tried old build, it was OK
10:44:06perldiverbut all 2 days old and new ones break it
10:44:06Lloreantucoz: Clockwise scrolls down, it's actually this case on iPods too though, isn't it?
10:44:07RedZZRmaybe the DMA screen updates?
10:44:18LloreanI believe the idea is that 'The right side of the wheel is moving downward"
10:44:19lavidtucoz: yes, it is more intuitive, like winding up a clock
10:44:38Jsunui think it effects wps with progress bars that are bmps

10:44:53tucozLlorean, lavid. i am puzzled ;)

10:46:00 Join kubiix [0] (
10:46:04tucozLlorean, lavid. that makes sense. I was thinking of using the wheel for increasing volume etc.
10:46:16RedZZRIt sounded good yesterday - except for the odd garbled song from halfway..
10:46:17tucozthat is why i was confused
10:46:25tucozthanks to both of you
10:46:31lavidtucoz: yeah, so for that usage, CW should be increase
10:46:36perldiverRedZZR yeah im not experiencing that anymore
10:46:46perldiverand i had it alot
10:46:57RedZZRgood... hope that has been fixed..
10:46:59Lloreantucoz: Yeah, it should increase the volume. Really it should mimic the behaviour of the scrollwheel on iPods with Rockbox, so that the interface is consistent across targets with a scrollwheel-type thing
10:47:14RedZZRI got the button leds working on my build.
10:47:23perldivernow the screen, as you said, i dont reckon anybody changed anything in that area
10:47:32perldiverso i dont know whats happening
10:47:45tucozI am fixing the key reference image, that is why i wanted to know
10:47:46perldiverRedZZR nice, are they dimming?
10:48:32Lloreanbluebrother: Did you see the thing about -w being before N in the uninstallation instructions for the iPod in the manual?
10:48:40lavidLlorean: the sansa scrollwheel is somewhat different from that of an ipod since as you move the sansa's feels like discreet movements, which i think is different from the touchwheel thing the ipods have
10:48:48perldiverRedZZR maybe you can take a look at dma updates?
10:48:53RedZZRI did add a menu item, but can't seem to get it to save and load, so I might just add the button leds as a patch and if people want it then can install it.
10:48:59bluebrotherLlorean, no.
10:49:17RedZZRI'll take a look, but I don't have commit privs so could not post a fix
10:49:17lavidllorean: but that's trivial for the moment
10:49:18bluebrotheris that still needed with the new ipodpatcher?
10:49:23Lloreanbluebrother: You even posted in response to the thread.
10:49:28RedZZReven if I can find it :)
10:49:48perldiverwell at least we would know what it is
10:49:50 Quit tychver ("Leaving")
10:49:53Lloreanbluebrother: Well, the uninstallation method is actually ipodpatcher N -d, but N -w bootpartition.bin works still. The real problem is that the manual as -w N bootpartition.bin, which doesn't work.
10:50:20LloreanNothing is required after the -d, by the way. It's just "ipodpatcher N -d" and it should remove the bootloader safely.
10:50:24perldiverall bmp based progress bars get affected
10:50:25LloreanUnless I got my arguments mixed up.
10:50:33bluebrotherah, I thought you meant an error in the manual first
10:51:02Lloreanlavid: Yes, it does feel like discrete movements, but from an interface standpoint it rotations in the same direction should have the same effect on the same screens.
10:51:45perldivercame with the 0103 build
10:52:27perldiverRedZZR oh and pacman got broken on the way as well :P
10:52:33lavidllorean: yeah, i agree, at least in the case of the volume
10:52:41perldiverstarting from the same build i think
10:52:47bluebrotherdo we have a description of ipodpatcher -d in the manual?
10:53:09*bluebrother greps for it
10:53:12perldiverhang on load but menu still works
10:53:29perldiverseems like dma issue as well
10:53:42lavidllorean: but i think the sansa wheel could control the rotation of the snake on the snake plugin or the tetris blocks while the ipod wheel wouldn't work as well for that purpose
10:53:42RedZZRyes I assume that must be a dma issue
10:53:53lavidllorean: as i said, a very minor issue
10:53:58Lloreanlavid: How could having discrete movements in any situation suggest the wheel should be turning the opposite direction of a non-discrete wheel?
10:54:06bluebrotherso ipodpatcher -d will remove the bootloader without needing a clean bootpartition.bin?
10:54:18Lloreanlavid: My statement *only* applied to cases where the iPod wheel was used, which is why I phrased it the way I did.
10:54:35LloreanI never said it shouldn't have additional uses, just that it should be identical in the places where the iPod wheel is used.

11:55:34bluebrotherhopefully we can move almost everything to action macros and won't need to worry about that anymore

12:07:37LloreanWhat use is an analog thumbstick?
12:08:06graii imagine it would make text entry a lot quicker and easier - you could select chars from a ring rather than doing a binary/ternary search for them or even (shudder) scrolling through a 1d list of them, like you have to on the ipod, for example
12:08:48ZerapheWhy not just get a PDA?
12:08:52graiplus you get variable-speed scrolling without having to use as much energy as with a touchpad :D

12:14:25ZerapheI have to disagree. Not being able to play Doom isn't really a downside. Yet I said that it was.

12:30:10LloreanZeraphe: Essentially, someone wants to be grandfathered into an exception to the rules, because he was an exception before. But he made the change that altered the situation, I proposed that the rules should now apply, people agreed, and he's acting like we're "shutting him down" or some such.
12:30:43LloreanMy proposal was simply that he move his unsupported build from the wiki to some offsite hosting now that it's moved from "A single bugfix to the 2.5 release" to a full modified build.
12:31:50ZerapheSounds reasonable. If everyone did the same, there'd be a terrible confusion over which version was current, supported, modified, et cetera.
12:33:14ZerapheHosting's not that hard to come by. Neither is a free DNS mask. And anyone searching for Rockbox + (player) would be able to find it, I'm sure. I found Psiuyo's site that way.
12:33:37mlindHello good people! I wonder if someone could lend me a hand...
12:33:39LloreanZeraphe: Supposedly he "cannot" get hosting.
12:33:49LloreanWhich to me means "cannot be bothered to" get hosting.

12:34:10mlindIs it too far fetched to ask that someone would compile and make a build for me to try?
12:34:34ZerapheWhy no building environment, mlind ?

12:40:39LloreanIndeed, and I'm only offering why you may not get help. I can't answer for others though, but I really think it best you at least try to set up your own environment.
12:41:35mlindYes. Thanks. So. Instead. Is there someone with a Mac here? :-)
12:41:47ZerapheAt least, that way if it foobars your player, you have only yourself to blame.

12:46:33scorchewe all know that just because we dont, doesnt mean other people dont as well though =S

14:41:52jhMikeStemporal (phase) dithering is just too coarse most of the time...been reading stuff but most literature is based on generating sine waves only and not centered around music synthesis.
14:42:22Wiwieokay, thank you
14:44:16Wiwieperhaps at any time i will be able to offer you my help to program at this feature, but at the moment i just can java and no C

15:28:23preglowalso, blind people might have problems with threaded view
15:28:27preglowi don't know how that's represented
15:28:40amiconnpreglow: The threaded view isn't default, but all half-decent mail clients can handle threads, even free (not open) ones like Outlook express
15:28:42preglowbut anyway, using reply to start a completely new mail is weird
15:29:04preglowamiconn: sure, all the clients i've seen can handle it
15:29:16amiconnThe only thing people should learn is that the reply function is for replying and _only_ for replying
15:29:56SoapIs it harder for people who receive the digest to reply to specific threads?
15:30:35FebsWhat I think is really weird is the tendency recently for people to have a single discussion over multiple e-mail threads.
15:30:36amiconnI don't use threaded view myself, so it doesn't annyo me as much as others. I only use the function to step through a thread sometimes
15:31:18FebsWhoops. wrong link
15:34:53FebsSoap: I'm not sure if it is even possible for people who receive the digest to reply to specific threads. Though I think that people who receive the digest tend to want to follow the discussion without necessarily participating in it.

18:56:59booboohais rockbox workin on it?
18:57:37booboohaok well i guess i can deal with just the normal firmware

18:57:44SoapThe 2nd gen nano is the first iPod ever, the first ipod ever (except the shuffles) not to use the PortaPlayer chips.

18:59:12Soapmain processor and half the other components. A "system on a chip"
18:59:22SoapI believe samsung makes the new ones.
19:00:01bluebrotherSoap, do you know what processor it is? Still ARM7 core?
19:00:04booboohawell thx for all ur help, at least that saved me some frustration
19:00:22Soapbluebrother: everything I've read says it is, but I don't know how they know that.
19:01:13bluebrotherok. Lets see when someone manages to run code on it ...
19:01:46Soapmaybe the front page should be changed from "Nano 2nd gen and 80GB Video 5.5th gen are not supported)" to "Nano 2nd gen and 80GB Video 5.5th gen do not work.)"

22:54:26senabespecially with my new shell script lol
22:54:40 Quit jhMikeS ("User pushed the X - Because it's X-tra")
22:54:56LloreanWell, they do help with patch testing.
22:55:14senabonly if the person can be arsed to give feedback
22:55:22LloreanThough only when you can actually identify which patch caused the problem, too.
22:55:26tamacrackerMount point should be /dev/sda1 yes?
22:55:26senabusually it's just "it don't work, please fix"
22:55:35tamacrackerthanks senab
22:55:44MalakaiCan anyone give me suggestions for why I get errors running tools/configure?
22:55:50Malakaiin cygwin on windows
22:55:54senabwell, it'll be /dev/sda*
22:56:09senabmalakai: have you applied any patches
22:56:27Malakaijust did a co of rockbox-all
22:56:45Malakaiand followed wiki for d/l the mods/packages I need for th ebuild environment
22:57:03LloreanWhat error do you get? Copy it to a pastebin if it's multi-line.
22:57:06tamacrackerah ok senab
22:57:42tamacrackeri have one more dumb question, am i goin to lose all my .sat files or if not will they be read by rock box?
22:57:42Lloreansenab: My favorite unsupported build used to be the "2.5.1" because it was just a backport of a relatively major bugfix to the 2.5 codebase for Archos users, but there's been drama on that front recently.
22:58:01Lloreantamacracker: Rockbox doesn't support .sat. You won't lose them, but Rockbox won't play them.
22:58:17senabwhat are *.sat?
22:58:26tamacracker>.> well i guess i have a crap load of songs to get again
22:58:36tamacrackerit's what toshiba converts the audio files into
22:58:39BagderLlorean: pathetic guys
22:58:47Mouser_Xtamacracker: There's a way to revert them back to MP3.
22:58:47tamacrackerso it will be .mp3.sat
22:58:54Mouser_XI don't know how to do it though.
22:58:56tamacrackeroh damn
22:58:57Lloreansenab: .sat is the format the Gigabeat converts to, apparently

22:59:17senabis it just a container?
22:59:24tamacrackerthat's exactly what it is
22:59:26Lloreansenab: With encryption I believe, but I'm not sure.

23:05:41GodEatersenab: I believe it can use either - it's a choice on the install
23:05:43orkidbootloader missing (that's the problem). linux doesn't recognize it as a storage device, but does see it as a sandisk usb device with 'tango digital media platform'
23:06:05gotthardtsenab: you can tell cygwin which ending to use
23:06:10Malakaii think it's fine with dos endings. I think the CVS client I used auto converted the line endings, because I can open up configure in notepad and it's acting like dos line endings
23:06:20gotthardtif you want to change them go back to the setup prog and rerun
23:06:40GodEaterI think that'll be the problem then

23:07:37senabdoes /usr/bin show up as binmode / text mode?

23:08:13Malakaiorkid: don't know any details on Sansa stuff. Most players have a recovery mode in their firmware
23:08:23Lloreanorkid: This is the wrong place to ask about random MP3 players.
23:08:32Malakaiorkid: or at worse, you remove the harddrive, and boot the player, forcing recover mode (like gigabeats)
23:08:50senabmalakai, i'd personally just use CRLF endings
23:09:02orkidbut the firmware has been wiped from the player's flash memory. i know it's not the right place, but don't know of a bette rone, and forums/googling didn't give much info
23:09:13Malakaii guess if i want to edit files easily on the laptop it'd make more sense
23:09:30Bagderorkid: the sansa recovery mode is in the bootloader, not the firmware
23:09:32Lloreanorkid: Have you tried contacting Sandisk?
23:09:33Bagderso it works even if you've installed rockbox
23:09:33orkidit's a flash only device, wioth th efirmware stored in flash.. and a bootloader in flash too that loads the firmware.
23:09:35senabunless you use a good text editor, my fave on win32 is notepad++

23:10:17Malakaii use visual studio any time i'm coding. just more familiar with it.
23:10:31tamacrackeris the root location called Gigabeat or Gigabeat/GBSystem?
23:10:35orkidBagder: the boot loader has been toasted though, and i'm looking for a way to put it back on.
23:10:44Malakaiorkid: pull the flash, boot, then put the flash in. see if it goes into USB mode
23:10:51Lloreantamacracker: "Root" refers to the \ on the device.
23:10:54senabnotepad++ has a batch mode for converting lf −−> crlf iirc
23:11:10Bagderorkid: it seems more than one sansa e200 owner have bricked their units like that...

23:11:32tamacracker /media/GIGABEAT <- yes?
23:11:52Lloreantamacracker: I don't have a gigabeat. I would guess yes though.
23:12:03tamacrackerok Llorean :P
23:12:05orkidBagder: yes..... Rockbox being an alternative mp3 player OS with support being looked into for teh sansa e and c series, i thought it might be a place that people know something about it's workings.
23:12:07Malakaii have a gigabeat, what are you trying to do?

23:12:38tamacrackerim about to install the rockbox onto my f series
23:12:47tamacrackeryeah cool senab :D
23:12:57Lloreanorkid: Support has only been worked on for the e2xx series. Honestly, contact sandisk first.
23:13:07Malakaiahh. if /media/ is the 'root' for the Gigabeat drive, then yes, /media/GBSYSTEM is where the FW images go
23:13:17tamacrackerso I wasn't sure if it needs to go to Gigabeat or Gigabeat/GBSystem
23:13:17Malakaier /FWIMG
23:13:17orkidnvm, the paste is dumb.
23:13:27Lloreanorkid: The c-series isn't even listed on our page as a potential in-development port other than someone suggesting it in the forums. This is not a random hardware support channel.
23:13:28Bagderorkid: really, you should ask sandisk first anyway
23:13:28orkidnvm mind then. i'll go research elsewhere....

23:13:51tamacrackerMalakai it would be /media/Gigabeat/GBSystem
23:13:55tamacrackerok cool
23:13:55*Llorean wonders why people are so averse to contacting official support.
23:14:07Malakaiif virtual root = /media/Gigabeat/ then yes.
23:14:17Malakaii'm just saying, on the GB itself, there is no 'gigabeat' dir.
23:14:21LloreanI mean, yes, there's like 5 hours of hold time, but it's a good chance to get some reading done.
23:14:37tamacracker /media/Gigabeat/GBSystem <- that's exactly what it looks like on the address bar

23:18:07Malakaiuse the manual, i'm just giving you the gist.
23:18:33Bagder... that new sansa posting in the forum
23:18:35tamacrackeryou don't extract the .zip file onto the /Media/Gigabeat, instead it's /Media/Gigabeat/GBSystem/FWIMG
23:18:45*Bagder gets a headache by just trying to read it
23:19:14senabi wouldn't extract straight to the player anyway, it'll take ages
23:19:45LloreanBagder: I already erased it and sent him a PM.
23:19:56Malakaiwhat zip? the rockbox zip?
23:20:03*scorche must have missed it
23:20:15Malakaiextract that to the players ROOT
23:20:17MalakaiNOT GBSYSTEM
23:20:18Lloreantamacracker: extracts in /Media/Gigabeat
23:20:28Lloreantamacracker: /Media/Gigabeat is the root of the player.
23:20:35tamacrackeroh i thought i needed to do it onto the FWIMG folder lol
23:20:43tamacrackeryeah Llorean that's where i got confused.
23:20:47Lloreanscorche: It was BAD. Lots of "z" instead of "the" and "2" instead of "to" and all in bright blue.
23:20:51GodEatershame - I enjoy reading the dumb posts as much as the intelligent ones
23:21:00Malakaidude, right now, if you were smart, you'd backup GBSYSTEM/* and zip it up. cause I get the feeling you don't like to read instructions
23:21:00GodEatercan we start a hall of shame ? :D
23:21:00*scorche shudders
23:21:10LloreanGodEater: It wasn't dumb so much as "completely disregarding all manner of guidelines"
23:21:28GodEateroh I like reading them too - and the follow up flames :)
23:21:28tamacrackerMalakai I'm reading lol
23:21:33tamacrackerI thought the instructions changed
23:21:34senabhaha damn ive missed it
23:21:36tamacrackercuz you mentioned something else.
23:21:50LloreanBagder: At least Sandisk can claim having provided us several hundred dollars worth of aid. I'm sure that makes them feel the warm fuzzies.
23:22:27scorcheand they can claim that they got advertising for geeks on the cheap
23:22:33senabjust looking at some of the 'new ports', rockbox for java???? gps hardware???
23:22:41Malakaionly time you need to be in GBSYSTEM is to backup the GBSYSTEM/FWIMG01.DAT (original bootloader) and then add the new RockBox bootloader in the same direcytor.
23:22:41BagderI can offer a fun quote:
23:22:44Bagder"It would be great to see release something by September"
23:22:56Mikachuaren't the 3.0 bugs fixed yet? you guys suck
23:22:59GodEaterwho was that from ?
23:23:01scorchesenab: look in the plugins section for a doom 3 request...
23:23:02Bagder(from my contact, dated august 2nd)
23:23:07Malakaiarg, i meant GBSYSTEM/FWIMG/FWIMG01.dat
23:23:18senabyou're joking? lol
23:23:30GodEaterdid he mean Sept. 2006 ? :)
23:23:48tamacrackerunderstood Malakai
23:23:56scorchesadly, im not
23:23:56BagderGodEater: yes
23:23:57senabn64 emulator?
23:23:57LloreanBagder: My response would've been "I feel we can offer some assurance of a September release if we are provided with adequate documentation of these chips: (list)"
23:24:16Lloreansenab: Clearly it's just a matter of renaming a file. (Are you reading that one?)
23:24:21BagderLlorean: I responded in a similar fashion
23:24:24GodEaterMine would have been expect it sometime Sept. 200x
23:24:39Bagderand here's another gem:
23:24:39LloreanBagder: At least you were honest with him about his prospects.
23:24:50Bagder"In our meetings last week with Europe Distis they all knew of you/"
23:24:59Bagderso they know us

23:28:10Mouser_Xdre: From earlier (when someone else asked the same thing): <Soap> your problem is a failure to understand that the Nano 2nd generation has as much in common with the Nano 1st generation as it does with a toaster.
23:28:26Mouser_XIn other words, they can't get it working yet.
23:28:41GodEaterand in more words - no-one's even trying

23:28:52drethe firmware is encrypted? so if i try to format the drive with windows
23:28:55drei will kill the ipod?
23:29:07tamacracker <- does not have toshiba's bootloader
23:29:14tamacrackeri mean for toshiba.
23:29:30Lloreantamacracker: See the manual... there's a link to a wiki page as well, or should be.
23:29:47MalakaiThe bootloader for gigabeat is checked into CVS
23:29:48Lloreandre: iTunes restore should be able to bring it back.
23:29:52senabis the 5.5g 30gb ipod, basically the same as the 5g 30gb hardware wise?
23:29:56Malakaiwhat else needs to happen for the CVS build process to make it?
23:29:56tamacrackerDownload the Rockbox bootloader. Currently there isn’t a prebuild bootloader available and you’ll need to build it yourself. This is described in the wiki. Once a prebuild bootloader is available the link comes here. Have a look at
23:30:08Malakaineed the encrypter in the rockbox build chain?
23:30:29drei havent done it yet, i just want to know if i have any possible alternative to downloading and isntalling itunes i dont want apple's crap on my pc
23:30:29LloreanBagder: Can we put this gigabeat bootloader up?
23:30:29tamacrackeri need to go the wiki page
23:31:09senabdre: the restore program is only in itunes now afaik
23:31:10Lloreandre: You're better off asking in a place where people actually use the Apple firmware regularly, specifically on 2G nanos.
23:31:26MalakaiLlorean: why not let the gigabeat bootloader auto build?
23:31:37BagderLlorean: done, its now on the download site
23:31:47LloreanMalakai: Bootloaders are usually kept as a static version, so that they can't accidentally be broken.
23:31:58LloreanThis is essential on some hardware that is difficult/impossible to recover from a bad bootloader.
23:32:05drellorean do you mean a forum of some sort? i wouldnt have a clue where to find people who use apple firmware for 2g nano
23:32:16LloreanBut it also allows for consistency, since once you have a working one, you always have one until a new major-version of it.

23:33:02KCChey guys, at this point whats the batterylife like when running rockbox on an f-series gigabeat?
23:33:02Soapyea, the word "supported" is probably the wrong word to use.
23:33:36Mouser_XKCC: I've heard that you can expect at *least* 10 hours, when not using the EQ.
23:33:39LloreanSoap: Supported?
23:33:39Soapshould probably say something like "Ipod 5.5g 80GB and 2nd generation Nano will not work with Rockbox at this time."

23:33:49LloreanAh, yeah.
23:33:58tamacrackeralmost done :D
23:34:01LloreanSupported implies that we just won't help you with it.
23:34:08Soapwhen IPL says "not supported" they mean "works, but don't ask us for support"
23:34:10KCCWow, thats impressive! Why does the EQ drain so much battery?
23:34:23Soapwhen we say "not supported" we mean "does not work"
23:34:30Soapleads to confusion.
23:34:43senabkcc: because it uses cpu cycles draining power many cases
23:34:46Mikachuthey imply "supported by us" but you imply "supported by rockbox"
23:34:53Mouser_XKCC: It's all run in software. My guess is that this requires more battery power to run the CPU at a heavier load.
23:35:01SoapKCC - the EQ is in the digital domain and is complex signal processing by the main CPU.
23:35:03KCCok, so if i leave the EQ settings at flat then im good for battylife
23:35:19Mikachuyou probably want to make sure the EQ is set to Off too
23:35:24KCCwill do
23:35:26senabunless the gigabeat has a hardware eq
23:35:30Malakaisomeone should check gigabeat/GigabeatDecrypter.c"> into CVS too before people forget
23:35:43Mikachui think the math in the EQ is more advanced than the actual decoder
23:35:58KCCabout the WPS... there seem to be 2 pages now... one for GigabeatFseries and one for Gigabeat320x240... whats the diff?
23:36:00Malakaigigabeat hardware EQ is bass/treble only
23:36:19LloreanMalakai: Well, that's not considered EQ in Rockbox terms, that's just "The Bass and Treble setting"
23:37:00*Malakai nods
23:37:04LloreanKCC: Where are you referring to?
23:37:16senabokay, i meant like the hw eq in the wolfson dac in the ipod
23:37:35 Quit kaaloo ("Leaving.")
23:37:35LloreanMalakai: The iPod Video has a 5-band limited hardware EQ.
23:37:35KCC ... scroll down to "Gigabeat WPS Gallery"
23:37:40tamacrackerFont also goes into the root, yes?
23:37:50senabnope, /.rockbox/fonts/
23:37:53LloreanKCC: One of those two links leads to an offsite gallery
23:38:00tamacrackerthank you senab :D
23:38:14Lloreansenab: When you extract it, it creates .rockbox/fonts if you extract in the root, it has subdirs.
23:38:16senabnp :)
23:38:25Lloreantamacracker: Just make sure the .fnt files end up in /.rockbox/fonts
23:38:32fasmaietamacracker: unzipping fonts in root will put a fonts folder in .rockbox/fonts
23:38:34tamacrackeryep :D
23:38:39MalakaiDo any of the other RockBox targets support screen rotation?
23:38:53senabllorean: i didn't know that, i only extract the fonts i want anyway
23:38:57LloreanSoap: Perhaps it could be changed to say "Rockbox does not support the 5.5G 80gb and Nano 2nd Gen"
23:39:08MalakaiNice thing about the original FW for Gigabeat was the ability to switch to horizontal themes
23:39:10BagderMalakai: if anyone did, it wouldn't be that big work we keep mentioning for doing it
23:39:27LloreanMalakai: Yeah, none of them do, but that's not because it's unwanted. Just nobody's done it.
23:39:28MalakaiI guess just the GUI thread really cares about it
23:39:34GodEaterI think we're going to need to write up some special instructions for Vista and iPodpatcher
23:39:42Malakainot like you need to notify people you're changing rotation with an event.
23:39:44LloreanGodEater: Yes: "Don't do it."
23:39:45Mikachuwouldn't it be fairly simple to hack the lcd driver to be permanently rotated?
23:40:05GodEaterLlorean: and how many people pay any attention to instructions like that on our forums ? :)
23:40:07SoapLlorean: I still don't like that usage of the word "support" - I still think it is ambigious.
23:40:08Bagderit would be easy to make it fixed rotated, yes
23:40:23GodEaterI think the chap on the forum with all the hassle is running a foul of vista's protection system
23:40:30LloreanSounds like it.
23:40:32GodEaterI know it's possible to disable it
23:40:36GodEaterbut I can't remember how
23:40:37SoapGodEater: two people in the last 24 hours who explicitly said they read that and thought it ment they should try.
23:40:39Mikachuso you could have two builds and rolo to change rotation maybe?
23:40:50GodEaterhaven't had vista on a PC near me for a couple of months
23:40:55senabhasn't the shell in vista been changed loads?
23:40:55BagderMikachu: not a bad idea really
23:41:07Malakaimik: yuck
23:41:10*Llorean likes the idea of making more use of ROLO.
23:41:10GodEaterit's not to do with the shell senab
23:41:21GodEaterit's to do with the lower level stuff in the OS
23:41:35senabi havn't used vista, so ive got no idea
23:41:36MalakaiROLO no go on GB yet.
23:41:48LloreanSoap: Well suggest it to Bagder, then. I like the idea of clarifying it, and that seems to do so.
23:41:55GodEaterI played with RC2 for a while
23:42:02Lloreansenab: I've got a vista disk coming in eventually, since it was free with a hardware purchase.
23:42:14GodEaterI'm waiting for M$ to wake up and smell the coffee with regards to pricing before I get it here
23:42:22GodEaterit's DOUBLE the price in the UK to the US
23:42:29MikachuLlorean: that is like saying the left shoe comes free with the purchase of the right shoe ;)
23:42:36senabi've just got no incling to get it, very happy with kubuntu recently
23:42:46GodEaterthey can just shove off if they think I'm dropping $800 for something they sell in the USA for $400
23:42:56tamacrackerthe rockbox splash screen didn't load
23:43:04senabgodeater, why not make use of the $2 = £1 rate then ;)
23:43:14LloreanMikachu: Well the hardware already had Media Center Edition installed, anyway.
23:43:18GodEatercos amazon won't ship it to the UK
23:43:25GodEaterand nor will anyone else
23:43:59senabi always though amazon shipped abroad
23:44:12GodEaterthey do generally
23:44:15GodEaterbut not in this case
23:44:25 Nick pill_ is now known as pill (
23:44:35GodEaterI'm going to get a friend of mine in Miami to ship it to me :)
23:44:47scorcheisnt amazon just a bonch of different companies that just list on amazon anyway?
23:44:53senabi need to get a new laptop anyway, i'll just wait until vista is out then get it oem for free
23:45:04tamacrackerIn my /media/gigabeat/gbsystem/fwimg folder i should have FWIMG00.DAT, FWIMG01.DAT, FWIMG01.DAT.ORIG, and FWIMG02.DAT right?
23:45:12senabamazon is a sort of broker, think dell of books
23:45:18 Join Daishi [0] (
23:45:19Lloreanscorche: Amazon has its own warehouses and product too, though
23:45:34Malakaitam: yes, and the FWIMG01.DAT should be what you d/l from rockbox
23:45:37Lloreanscorche: But Microsoft is likely to come down hard on exporting product to a market where it doesn't belong.
23:45:45tamacrackeryeah it is...
23:45:46senabonly a small inventroy though, they mainly order from wholesalers on order
23:45:56Lloreantamacracker: What exactly *do* you get?
23:46:05scorchejust goes to show, it is good to have friends all over the world
23:46:07Malakaimake sure you properly 'eject' the USB device
23:46:15tamacrackerlol my oem toshiba spalsh
23:46:18Malakaior the GB can get stuck in a USB mode and not really load the FW again
23:46:22dreyea considering sony is raping importers like they converted to oldschool islam for ps3
23:46:30tamacrackerMalakai what do you mean?
23:46:37senabmalakai: i always forget to eject ums's lol
23:46:45tamacrackerI took off the power, then the usb, then shut off the mp3 player, then turned it back up
23:46:50tamacrackerup - on
23:46:54Malakaiwell in windows it's the equivalent of dbl click the little icon and 'stoping' the usb mass storage device
23:46:58Malakaibefore you unhook it
23:47:04Soapmight as well download it from some random tracker - you are violating the terms of the license both ways.
23:47:04Malakainot sure the linux equiv
23:47:08senabi know, i still forget lol
23:47:16tamacracker>.> naw i dont think linux you need to do that.
23:47:28senabyes you do
23:47:29tamacrackerthere's mounting and unmounting...
23:47:33tamacrackeryou do?
23:47:33senabsame thing
23:47:42Malakaiyou better hope there's no lazy write waiting to flush
23:47:43tamacrackerso i need to unmount it?
23:47:46scorcheumounting rather
23:47:51scorchethere is also eject
23:47:55senabu should, i never do though
23:47:56tamacrackerok <,< hol don
23:48:09Malakaiit's a 'good thing to do' but i agree, it's not always required
23:48:22scorchesenab: you should if you mount it as asynchonous
23:48:24Malakaistill, the GB usb can be flaky. best to follow protocol
23:48:24LloreanIt sounds like you just didn't overwrite the FWIMG01.DAT after all, but I dunno.
23:48:34Mikachunot ejecting tends to confuse the usb stack in linux, at least here..
23:48:45Mikachusometimes a port stops working until i reboot, but the others work fine
23:48:45Bagdernot here
23:48:48 Join JoeBorn [0] (
23:48:49BagderI've never used eject
23:48:52Malakaiwhat's the filesize on FWIMG01.DAT?
23:48:59BagderI just umount
23:49:11senabsometimes i find linux just won't all
23:49:16Mikachui noticed that eject takes proportionally long to finish to the amount of data i wrote
23:49:23Mikachui mean, in addition to umount
23:49:33Soapwrite caching on?
23:49:41Mikachuit says "safe to eject" but still takes a while
23:49:47Mikachuor unplug or whatever
23:49:52senabsoap: nope
23:49:56tamacrackeroh crap i never noticed that
23:50:03tamacrackerright click and click safely remove lol
23:50:27tamacrackernope nothin.
23:50:37Malakaimost OS's are smart enough now not to enable write caching on UMS devices. but still, for awhile many did
23:50:53 Quit JoeBorn (Client Quit)
23:50:56Mikachuums devices is a place you really want write caching
23:50:57Mouser_Xtamacracker: What's the filesize of FWIMG01.DAT?
23:51:01tamacrackerhold on
23:51:34Malakaimik: for performance yes, for my grandmother, no.
23:51:36KCChow well does rockboy work on the gigabeatF?
23:51:40 Quit petur ("sssssssssss---------PLOP!")
23:51:49MikachuMalakai: for not breaking the flash too
23:52:04Mouser_XKCC: I don't know, but someone said they played many GBC games using it on a Gigabeat.
23:52:05Malakaiwell i'm talking HD's, not limited life media
23:52:35tamacrackerFWIMG01.DAT from the bootloader link is 63.7Kbs
23:52:38KCChaha i love rockbox, let me tell ya
23:52:39Mouser_XKCC: That might have changed though. Many plugins seem to be quite flakey with the Gigabeat port of Rockbox.
23:53:05senabi'm not really seeing a battery life increase with the cop patch
23:53:07Mikachuthat's hard for the os to guess
23:53:32Malakaitamacracker: sounds like the right one.
23:53:34dan_asenab: At the moment I thing the gain is about 15 minutes
23:53:48tamacrackerim sure i did everything correct, especially the boot files.
23:54:03senabdan_a: i'd thought it'd be more than that
23:54:10tamacrackerwould the fact that my linux assumes that the .dat file is a mpeg file have anything to do with it?
23:54:34senabno, it shouldnt
23:54:38tamacrackerthought so.
23:54:44Malakaiyou named it FW<I>MG<ZERO>1.DAT?
23:54:51Malakainot 1 and Oh
23:54:51dan_asenab: I thought it would make battery life worse.
23:55:20Malakaias in 'firmware image 1'
23:55:30tamacrackerFW imgae number 01.dat
23:55:41MalakaiYou sure you have a Gigabeat F?
23:55:51Malakaithis doesn't work on Thumb drives.
23:55:57Malakaithey don't have DAC's in them
23:56:18Malakaia joke
23:56:19senabdan_a: was the cop just sleeping before then
23:56:31tamacrackersorry im kinda lost as to why it's not loading up properly
23:56:52MalakaiYou have a .rock in root?
23:57:20tamacracker.rockbox and rockbox.gigabeat
23:57:42senabyou don't then
23:57:48tamacrackeri dont?
23:58:04senaba *.rock is a plugin file
23:58:15dan_aIt was, but it was using full power. I thought it would be powered down, so using it would make battery life worse. I'm going to do some tests to balance things between the two cores, and see what kind of effects I can get
23:58:18tamacracker /media/GIGABEAT <- that's the folder they're in
23:58:20Malakaino i mean .rockbox, was abbreviating
23:58:23Malakaier meant
23:58:45senabooooh, sorry malakai
23:58:51Malakaitamacracker: you followed th einstructions on turring off the battery swithc, and then coming on and holding the power button?
