#rockbox log for 2007-01-11

00:01:31 Quit bluebrother ("Leaving")

00:03:05 Quit petur ("sssssssssss---------PLOP!")
00:03:10redwoodhello - I have a question regarding an error message I got on my iriver h340
00:04:06redwoodon bootup after the rockbox logo the player freezes and displays *PANIC* Stkov dircache
00:04:35redwoodi'm using dailay build 070109-0700
00:04:42preglowwell, how nice
00:04:51Lloreanredwood: Have you tried clearing your settings?
00:04:56muesli-this happens 2 be either in the last times
00:05:00redwoodit will boot then
00:05:03Lloreanredwood: And you're using the official build?
00:05:07redwoodbut then on next boot the same thing
00:05:40redwoodalthough this started after I compiled a build with the recording enhancements patch
00:05:56redwoodI then cleared settings
00:05:59redwoodsame thing
00:06:10LloreanSo, wait, an official build, or the build with the REP?
00:06:14redwoodand then reverted back to a previously compiled build
00:06:19 Quit Thundercloud_ (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:06:21muesli-somebody wrote on misticriver to increase a buffer
00:06:29 Quit ender` (" You know that old saying, 'Strike while the iron is hot?' Well, I think that's a pretty dumb saying, 'cause I'll betcha a co)
00:06:30redwoodthe official build still exhibits the problem
00:06:38 Quit alberink ("CGI:IRC")
00:06:40Lloreanredwood: Even after clearing settings with the official build?
00:07:04redwoodit will boot if I hold the rec button after starting
00:07:43Lloreanredwood: Then, after you re-enable dircache, it Stkovs?
00:08:15muesli-Just change "0x800" to "0xA00" in dircache.c at line 63. It works fine for me
00:08:25muesli-will that help`?
00:08:54 Quit d47 ("later noobs")
00:09:10Lloreanmuesli-: This needs to be found out if it's a problem with the real build, or only triggered after using unofficial ones.
00:09:12fasmaiegoffa: Has your friend made up her mind yet?
00:09:15redwoodLlorean - it Stkovs even if i leave the settings alone
00:09:39Lloreanredwood: It Stkovs even with dircache disabled?
00:09:42muesli-rockbox also freezes when i change the bass value. dunno if it only concerns the experimental build
00:09:49redwoodlllorean - yes
00:10:13pixelmaGenre9mp3 reported it here and discussed the problem with linuxstb - it was his advice to increase the stack size.
00:10:19Lloreanredwood: When you reinstalled Rockbox, the official build, did you erase your .rockbox folder or just overwrite it?
00:10:20redwoodbasically the only way I can get it to boot is to hold the rec button after startup
00:10:30 Quit Arathis ("[rl_bot quit]")
00:10:33redwoodllorean - I erased it
00:10:49redwoodand then tried to enable dircache
00:11:10redwoodand then it showed up, but it keeps doing it after clearing settings
00:11:53LloreanSo, if you download a daily build, delete the .rockbox folder, install the daily, boot up holding Record, everything is fine until you enable Dircache?
00:12:27redwoodessentially yes
00:12:41LloreanWhat did I leave out?
00:13:30redwoodllorean - like i said it first started after i comiled my own build
00:13:53pixelma at 17:37
00:14:19LloreanJust, but if you clear your settings on a clean first boot of Rockbox official, with a completely fresh .rockbox folder, there should be no remnants of your custom build
00:14:20redwoodand then continued after a clean install of a previously working build of mine, and continues after a clean install of an official daily build
00:14:59redwoodllorean yes
00:15:46LloreanIt's just odd that every time I hear about this, it's after using a custom build.
00:15:57 Quit Seed (Nick collision from services.)
00:15:58LloreanPossibly it's a stkov happening in the building of the dircache.
00:16:04 Join Seed [0] (
00:16:17redwoodllorean - so you've seen this b4
00:16:36LloreanLlorean: I've seen lots of this discussed in unsupported builds threads.
00:16:53LloreanAnd although I've never seen it b4, yes, I've seen it before.
00:17:04redwoodpoint taken
00:17:44redwoodLlorean is there anything I should look out for when compiling under cygwin?
00:17:56redwoodi don't recall seeing any errors
00:17:59Llorean"look out for"?
00:18:27muesli-could somebody confirm on iriver that rockbox freezes when changing the bass value`!?
00:18:44Lloreanmuesli-: I thought you said you only have experienced it on an unsupported build.
00:19:00 Join Nico_P [0] (
00:19:07Lloreanredwood: If it happens in official builds, it's probably a real bug in Dircache that shows up in the (re)creation of the dircache, and is something in the code that needs tweaked, either increasing the stack size or fixing a bug.
00:19:08muesli-didnt check the "normal" build
00:19:16Lloreanmuesli-: So, couldn't *you* do that?
00:19:46muesli-sure ;-)
00:19:59redwoodLlorean - is there a common error in compiling that could cause stkov to happen
00:20:06Lloreanmuesli-: It's a little strange to ask others to confirm something that you don't even know happens yet.
00:20:14redwoodthat i should "look out for"
00:20:25Bagderredwood: stkov is a stack overflow and should not happen at all
00:20:29Lloreanredwood: See my last message to you.
00:21:09muesli-Llorean i dont see it that way. when u have installed the normal build it would be much faster to countercheck it
00:21:30*JdGordon has been getting dircache stkOv's recently also
00:21:50*Nico_P too
00:21:56Lloreanmuesli-: And if it's NOT a problem in an official build, then whoever wasted the time testing it because it's a bug in an unofficial build just spent time confirming that someone else's unofficial work has problems
00:21:57Nico_Ponly one or two though
00:22:00 Join Johnny [0] (
00:22:27Lloreanmuesli-: Remember that there is a policy of "reproduce it with an official build before asking about it"
00:22:32redwoodLlorean - sorry missed it before - did you see muesli's comment : Just change "0x800" to "0xA00" in dircache.c at line 63.
00:22:35JohnnyIs anyone around willing to help me out?
00:22:37muesli-Llorean damn it..changing a bass value is not a task that will make ya sweaty!
00:22:52Lloreanmuesli-: And installing an official build won't either.
00:23:01muesli-bla bla
00:23:16Lloreanmuesli-: In fact, if you'd done it as soon as you said you'd only experienced it in unofficial ones, you'd have finished long ago.
00:24:12LloreanYou also are the only person who can reproduce the exact conditions under which it happened, since you haven't said whether music was playing or not when you adjusted the settings, what format music you were playing, whether you had any other settings enabled...
00:24:26preglowi actually think css3 supports text direction!
00:24:27LloreanYou've given *far* too little information for anyone to reliably guess what conditions it's expected to freeze under.
00:24:36Lloreanpreglow: *gasp*
00:24:45Bagderbut css3...
00:24:47preglowtoo bad nothing supports css3
00:24:57preglowapart from ie, which supports that attribute alone
00:25:11 Quit fasmaie ()
00:25:36Lloreanredwood: Smaller numbers between those may even work too, possibly. But the question is whether that's the right fix or not.
00:26:17redwoodllorean - i'll try to test it
00:26:37pixelmapreglow: reminds me of the golden rules of html... ;)
00:27:39JohnnyAlright, I guess I'll just throw it out there and if someone knows a sloution then feel free to tell.
00:27:42jbai don't mean to badger you Bagder but there isn't really anyone around who works on the gigabeat lately
00:28:09Bagderyou mean lately as in the recent hours?
00:28:15jbaa in the last two days

00:28:36jbashould i logg the bass/treble patch in flyspray and forget it ?
00:28:46BagderI've got mail and handed out svn access to three gigabeat hackers
00:28:51Lloreanjba: There is a log for this channel to find if people have been around
00:28:54Mikachujba: if you put something in flyspray and forget it, it will never get merged
00:29:01jbathat's my worry
00:29:20jbayesterday you said there was only one gigabeat dev with svn (sloth, greg white)
00:29:30LloreanBagder: Is there any chance of me getting SVN access, so I can probably help keep installation instructions up to date in the manuals at the very least? I figure I could fit in with the manual crew, and not screw up the tex too badly.
00:29:37jbai can't seem to get a response from gotthardt or sloth

00:29:59jbaLlorean: i know about the log
00:32:06Lloreanjba: As for posting things in the tracker, it's a good place to keep them. Even if they get lost, you can still pester people about 'em, and that way they might get noticed while you're not around.
00:32:15LloreanBasically, it can only help to have it in the tracker.
00:33:01JdGordonjba: plus, if the devs you want are on the tracker mailing list, they will see the patch when you add it
00:33:05JohnnyI've installed the bootloader on my 80gig and I can't seem to get it off this bootloader screen. I didn't put the .rockbox folder into the root, and restarting the thing just puts me right back at the same screen.
00:33:17Johnny...Am I screwed?

00:33:38Mikachutry restarting and then immediately turning on hold
00:33:44Mikachuthat is the new way of booting retailos right?
00:34:26JohnnyHm, no luck.
00:34:31LloreanJohnny: A) The 80gb isn't supported. B) Get into the emergency disk mode (hold Menu+Select to reboot, and then Play+Select immediately until disk mode starts) and follow the uninstall directions.
00:34:35jbaokay will log a flyspray with it
00:35:01 Join Bohboheroed [0] (
00:35:03JohnnyI thought it wasn't. The fact that the bootloader installed made me think otherwise. Oh well.
00:35:28LloreanJohnny: You should be able to uninstall it fine.
00:35:37LloreanJohnny: It *does* say on the front page of the site that your iPod isn't supported

00:39:29JdGordonthe audio buffer is used as a ring buffer right?
00:39:49Juice^Bohboheroed: load it from the themes menu?
00:40:22Bohboheroedyeah i didn't see it showing up
00:41:16LloreanBohboheroed: if it's JUST a WPS file, you load it from "Browse WPS" not "Browse Themes"
00:41:35Nico_PJdGordon: i'm pretty sure it is
00:42:06Bohboheroedhmm maybe im just not finding the menu

01:00:10BohboheroedCan anyone tell me where the WPS options are I uploaded a new one to the ipod but haven't figured out how to select it
01:00:12toffeKCC : price increase since rockbox works on the gigabeat ;)

01:23:14dan_aIf I wanted to edit Rockbox so it played an MP3 on startup, is there an easy way to do that? It's for a test, so it can be hacky
01:23:41Lloreandan_a: Resume on startup?
01:24:15dan_aThe target I'm working on doesn't have an LCD driver, but I want to test the sound driver
01:26:13LloreanYou could hard-code the resume to open a specific file, and the resume on startup to default to yes? It seems complicated, but then, I don't know how complicated the other options are.
01:26:52redwoodLlorean - have not had a chance to recompile yet with the new stack size but just confirmed again by an new clean install of today's build that I still get the Stkov error
01:26:59dan_aIf I could find where the resume settings are stored, that might be the easiest way to do it

02:23:44LloreanSince he actively circumvented a ban (and has consequently broken Cox's acceptable use policy) I'm trying to work through their Abuse system, but it's Cox, and that name is indicative of how they create customers and non-customers alike.

02:24:42LloreanSo far he's (kinda) behaving himself.

02:27:30LloreanHe's rather determined not to be banned, but if he does become a problem I'll come up with a more encompassing solution.

04:18:59Phish|I have a Sony microphone that i'd like to use with my 5g 30gb ipod video to record. I know you need to do line-in through the dock connector. What dock connector do I need so that I can plug the microphone in, rather than use a line-in cable. The microphone has the same size plug as the headphone jack accepts.
04:19:44Soapyou'd need a line-in adapter for your dock port (for sure), and a pre-amp for the microphone (most likely)
04:20:20Aloneamy other question is about getting the source code (I am simply trying to install patches). Now I wanted to get it from the CVS and I managed to do it, but since its svn now, is there a new command?
04:21:04Phish|Soap: so then the line-in adapter just has the correct jack on it for me to plug the mic in? I assumed I'd need some special female converter.
04:21:28Soapthe physical connection is only 1/2 the issue.
04:21:44SoapA microphone does not produce signals at a line level.
04:21:45Phish|well the mic is a powered mic with a pre-amp of its own

05:36:57Phish|cellothough i was thinking....if apple's DRM was cracked by playing the file through itunes and capturing the AAC frames, shouldn't it theoretically be possible to store the info needed for the drm in a directory on a rockbox ipod, then write a plugin that fools the file in to thinking it's running in itunes, then capture the AAC frames and output to the headphones?
05:37:22Phish|cellothat way you can listen to protected content, but only if you own it
05:37:36Aloneayeah, thats what I am doing. I didn't know how to start nano. Asked goffa and he said nano ~/.bashrc
05:37:47LloreanPhish|cello: iPods synced with iTunes DRMed songs already have the data on disk to decode them.
05:38:10Phish|celloright but rockbox doesn't have access to the data, does it?
05:38:14LloreanPhish|cello: That's why some methods of stripping it require an iPod to be attached.
05:38:54LloreanThe data's there. Rockbox can use it as easily as SharpMusique or whatever, if it really cared to, but removing DRM in any manner becomes a gray area.

05:45:29Phish|cellowell right, but what i'm arguing is that you could write a plugin to fool the drm in to thinking it IS running on itunes, but using the account info already stored on the ipod

05:47:58Phish|because i get a ton of classical music from that store much cheaper than i can get it elsewhere
05:48:00dewdude_personally, if you're running rockbox, you oughta be enough of a geek to know better.
05:48:34Phish|plus there isn't really huge selection of classical music available for illegal download
05:48:43LloreanNobody's suggesting illegal download.
05:48:50LloreanI'm just not a fan of telling apple "It's okay to rent me my music"
05:49:12 Quit Febs (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
05:49:30Phish|eh, i guess for now that means just stripping the drm, which doesn't bother me at all
05:49:46dewdude_good luck with that.

05:50:12Phish|dewdude_: i've already done it....the FairUse app is all over the internet
05:50:28LloreanYou're still giving them money though, which supports the DRM whether you strip it or not.
05:50:57Phish|Llorean: i understand that. but financially it's much cheaper than going out and buying a classical music cd for the one track i want
05:51:04dewdude_yeah...but does it actually strip the DRM...or just use some tricky method to decode the data then re-encode it.
05:51:33Phish|dewdude_: it plays the file through itunes and then captures the decrypted data and re-writes it without drm to a .m4a file
05:51:47dewdude_before or after decoding?
05:51:52Phish|after decoding
05:52:03dewdude_ok, so you're basically re-encoding the file.
05:52:12Phish|yes, but without any drm
05:52:34dewdude_but you're re-encoding the file. you're taking a lossy file, decoding it, then applying the same lossy tecnhique to it.
05:52:55Phish|correct me if i'm wrong, but isn't AAC lossless?
05:53:11LloreanNo, AAC isn't lossless
05:53:31Lloreandewdude_: Fairplay actually doesn't transcode. It captures the decrypted, but still encoded, data, as far as I'm aware

05:58:23Phish|but for those of us who use classical music recordings as a study tool, it gets way too expensive

05:59:00Phish|i could spend $500 in any given semester of college on study recordings alone
05:59:18combrainsI just agree with Llorean. I don't like the idea of not actually owning the copy of the song I have bought
05:59:39Phish|well theoretically you do, because you can burn the albums to a cd

06:00:06Mouser_XThe only reason this interests me at all, is because my sister downloaded a song off of iTunes (what was she thinking?), and wants to be able to play it in other media applications.

06:29:57Phish|the sample is no longer a sample of another artist's is a portion of the track owned by NWA

06:30:08LloreanIt's a sample of both.
06:30:46Mouser_XI feel this is appropriate (and funny) for the current conversation:
06:31:01Mouser_X(This was found while getting audio data off of a Playstation game.)
06:31:04Phish|solution: destroy copyright law and allow the artists to persue whatever physical acts of violence they feel necessary
06:31:32Mouser_Xgoffa: What genre would that be?
06:31:32combrainsno, NWA didnt BUY the copyright of the owner of the sample, they simply had permission to use it in exchange for a royalty
06:31:48goffaMouser_X: i'm not sure there's a name
06:31:48combrainsthat is where the issue is
06:32:04Phish|combrains: correct, but you could argue that the newly created track containing the sample is entirely the property of NWA
06:32:20goffabut he took 2 copywrited albums and mixed them
06:32:29ZerapheWell, the artist of the sample had a right to sue NWA for a percentage of the royalties if that was the agreement.
06:32:38ZerapheNot the movie guys.

06:33:51ZerapheNWA may have violated a contract in selling the track, but the movie producers didn't violate squat. They used something they bought fairly.
06:34:29ZerapheThe whole arena is so convoluted.

08:39:42blindRockbox started resetting itself on my iPod color, so i put the daily builds on it, and now it freezes randomly. any suggestions?
08:40:03amiconnLlorean: When the master has handed out all builds and some build servers are already finished but others are still working, the master could hand out unfinished builds a second time to the idling build servers
08:40:30amiconnThe master would then pick up the result from whatever server is finishing it first
08:41:25Lloreanamiconn: Ah, seems a good idea.
08:41:34amiconnThis system would avoid excessive total build times due to slow, overloaded or hanging build servers
08:41:37Lloreanblind: Have you tried using the no frequency scaling one?
08:41:47blindI don't even know what that is.
08:42:21amiconn...and it would help mking fast build servers even a bit faster: Because they tend to compile more builds, their ccache will be more up to date
08:42:56Lloreanblind: Look for Mikeage's build in the unsupported builds forum
08:43:13amiconnThere is one thing that would be required on the client side: the build script should allow cancelling a build
08:43:39amiconnThe master would cancel all concurrent build when the first build server returned the result

10:06:50peturI used it this morning on my way to work, powered down, got at my desk and powered on again: poof

10:07:29pondlifeAh, do you shut down during playback? Maybe something is being left untidy in the playlist control?
10:08:00peturyes I always shutdown while playing
10:08:15peturtree = music/A/Artist/CDname/song.ext
10:08:24pondlifeIf I attempt a big playlist (e.g. 13000 tracks) then it takes quite a while to write playlist details, yet I have been able to shut down during the write and that knackers auto-resume.
10:08:48pondlifeAgain, only an intermittent problem though.
10:08:57peturI had a playlist running of about 50 tracks but it was still ok after reboot
10:08:59JdGordonI just created a dir, did a clean shutdown reboot and no problems

10:09:25peturJdGordon: it's not *that* reproducable
10:09:40pondlifeA big playlist just makes it easy to spot that there's unfinished work, it might happen with a small one if you're unlucky
10:09:40JdGordoni know
10:10:37pondlifeSlasheri: Unrelated question - if I have an up-to-date database, with auto-update enabled, and I then enable auto-update, it doesn't seem to update anything until I re-init the database (or maybe reboot). Is this expected?
10:12:12pondlifeIt might just be the debug screen shows 0% progress (0 entries).
10:12:17pondlifeA reboot fixes
10:13:10Slasheripondlife: hmm, auto update should work only on reboot and after disconnecting usb cable
10:13:27Slashericurrently deleting a song inside rockbox is not updated immediately for example
10:13:40pondlifeOK, that explains it
10:13:40 Join My_Sic [0] (
10:14:07Slasherithat is mainly because database needs to be committed and that can't be done after every single modification
10:14:47pondlifeNope. I thought it might catch up after a short while (like every 2 mins or something)
10:15:07pondlifeOr on the next buffer fill?
10:15:08Slasherihmm, that could be a nice feature indeed
10:15:14Slasherimaybe :)
10:15:27pondlifeWe have better callbacks now, I hear
10:15:50pondlifeShould the debug menu not say "View database info" btw?
10:16:42Slasheriah, it still says tagcache. That could be changed
10:16:49pondlifeI'm about to!
10:17:19Slasheribut it's still internally called tagcache and debug menu is quite internal too
10:17:33pondlifeTrue, but I think UI should be consistent regardless
10:17:34Slasheribut just change it if you think it's better that way

10:35:23bluebrotheryou can't configure tortoise to not change line endings? Uh.
10:35:44Bagderrafaik, it converts them as svn should do
10:35:54Bagderrthere's a line ending concept that it follows
10:36:33peturI tried forcing it to convert but that marked all files as changed because their property was different

10:37:09Bagderron ebay!
10:37:17Bagderrreally cheap
10:37:40bluebrotherif some dev checks in a file with CRLF and another checks it out on a unix box those endings are converted to LF only, right?

10:38:18bluebrotheramazing what you can get at ebay ...

10:43:04GodEaterWebif you don't have the opportunity to run linux
10:43:11peturpondlife: you must continue with dos2unix then
10:43:14*amiconn prefers using cygwin even though he already has a linux box, and knows linux is faster at compiling
10:43:31bluebrotherpondlife, you're also living in a cupboard? me too :)
10:43:34pondlifeSo there's no sort of auto-DOS2UNIX built into SVN
10:43:47JdGordon... on the topic of dircache... has it frozen in the sim for anyone else on boot?

10:46:24pondlifepetur: Does TortoiseSVN work at the command line. I'd prefer that to a GUI.
10:46:26bluebrotherfor (2) I use NX, works quite well for me
10:46:56*petur wonders why you need commandline when you've got a nice gui
10:46:56d47ive never used context so i cant really compare
10:47:08pondlifeJust a preference

10:47:35pondlifeI like command histories and batch jobs!
10:47:40peturbut indeed, cygwin SVN won't work ok with TortoiseSVN I think... must check at home
10:47:49amiconnbluebrother: I've read about NX, but I have no idea how to install and configure it
10:48:00amiconnI couldn't find debian-amd64 packages either

11:57:18preglowi don't really like rombox blocking stuff
11:57:30preglowit's going to be a persistant problem
11:58:31LloreanYou could have a feature freeze, once more just focusing on Archoses, and try to get Rombox down to size without removing features, then release a "Final" Rombox.
12:01:07preglowi guess so, but do we really have enough archos users left that we'll have enough input to "finalise" it?
12:01:20pregloware there really any big issues left, or do we just need to optimise?
12:01:31pondlifeJdGordon: What's left to do on the settings patch? Just voice?
12:01:41safetydanlooking at fs#6501, could we maybe just try parsing the vorbis date tag as iso 8601?
12:02:00safetydanMost places seem to recommend that your date tags be in that format. If it fails, we're no worse off than before.
12:02:32JdGordonpondlife: no, each setting needs to be checked to make sure its actually correct, and then if it needs anything done before/after loadin the setting screen for it
12:03:31Lloreanpreglow: I think it's more or less "Get voice working on every screen, get Rombox to fit again", then maybe stick a bookmark at that date to backport occasional bug fixes if there's something that got overlooked, but that's the last Rombox version.
12:04:27Nico_Pwhat is rombox ?
12:04:37linuxstbRockbox running from ROM on the Archos devices.
12:04:59pondlifeAnd maybe on the Irivers too?
12:05:03linuxstbIt's now too big to fit in ROM...
12:05:14Lloreanpondlife: The irivers have plenty of ROM space
12:05:25linuxstbPotentially, although the gain isn't that much - irivers have lots of RAM.
12:05:32Nico_Pok... so it's the targets that have been having errors since some time, is that it ?
12:05:45LloreanNico_P: For many people it's the best way to run rockbox on Archos, since it frees up more audio buffer and boots quickly
12:05:45linuxstbArchos devices have 2MB RAM, so moving Rockbox to ROM gains a large percentage back.
12:06:15Nico_Pand what about this ? is it still planned ?
12:06:31pondlifeI stopped updating my Archos once Rombox failed to build.
12:06:34pondlifeThen I sold it

12:11:56Nico_Ppondlife: you've worked on playback.c, right ?
12:11:58Lloreanpreglow: Well, a Rombox-only could be forked, where people could commit Rombox opts/fixes until it fits, but don't have to, and then the lift on caring about Rombox leaves the main fork.
12:12:00Juice^pondlife: yep. has to be

12:12:43pondlifeWhy do you ask?

12:13:17Nico_Ppondlife: because i'm getting headaches with it :)
12:13:21preglowbtw, did slasheri make rombox work in flash for iriver?
12:13:25pondlifeHaha, it does that
12:13:29Lloreanpreglow: But at that point, it's not anyone's fault for continually breaking it, it's instead anyone's fault for not working on it.
12:14:00preglowLlorean: good point, good point
12:14:51Nico_Ppondlife: with JdGordon we've been talking about metadata-on-buffer... we'd like to make it happen but lack knowledg of the playback engine
12:15:12pondlifeNico_P: IMHO, the whole of playback needs redoing; it's overly complex. It needs ALL the data to be in the buffer.
12:15:34Nico_Pwhat do you mean by "all the data" ?
12:16:02pondlifeThere are some horrible bugs in there at the moment. If you want to get your head round it, try making a build that will only buffer 3 tracks, rather than 32. You will find many things fail to stay in sync.
12:16:06Lloreanpreglow: Honestly, if it doesn't get worked on when it *can* be, then it clearly shouldn't have been a barrier to continuing work in the first place. So a fork is ideal either way.
12:16:56linuxstbpondlife: How do you feel about a complete rewrite of the playback code?
12:16:59pondlifeNico_P: There are several structures to keep in sync at the moment. I would hope they could be included as part of the buffered data (i.e. a header block) so as to avoid a need for so many pointers.
12:17:13 Quit petur ("lunch")
12:17:14Nico_Ppondlife: lostlogic tried to rework the playback engine but apparently he didn't quite finish the work... are you suggesting it should be rewritten from scratch ?
12:17:19preglowLlorean: yes, sounds reasonable
12:17:33pondlifeNot from scratch, but fairly fundamentally reviewed.
12:18:10pondlifeThe thread swapping needs to be simplified, and the data handling needs work.
12:18:16Nico_Pthat could be fun, but i kinda doubt it's a one man work... unless you want to do it ?

12:19:10*JdGordon puts hand up to help in the gruntwork if needed
12:19:14Nico_Pmaybe you could lay down a few ideas on a wiki page ?
12:19:31pondlifeThen we can all do a bit and point the fingers when someone's interface fails to behave!
12:19:53Nico_Ppersonally, what i lack is global understanding of what gooes on in this code
12:19:58pondlifeMe too!!
12:20:21jbahey guys
12:20:23pondlifeI think both lostlogic (Mr Buffering) and jhMikeS (Mr PCM) are best qualified.
12:20:25Nico_Pand other things too, of course, but that's the main one :)
12:20:34jbaShonky, heloo?
12:20:56pondlifeSomeone else was going to pop up a wiki, can't recall who, but IRC logs from the past fortnight will help.

12:23:32pondlifeI would like to see the video stuff using the standard audio playback too, if that's remotely practical.
12:24:32pondlifeHow do I search the IRC logs, and not include any other stuff (e.g. mailing list)?
12:25:34Nico_Puse site: in the google search
12:26:19linuxstbpondlife: What do you mean by "standard audio playback"?
12:26:41pondlifeAFAIK, mpegplayer doesn't use playback.c.
12:26:51pondlifeWhy not be able to include videos in a playlist?
12:28:19pondlifeOR is the entire audio buffer required for video use?
12:28:52linuxstbpondlife: Yes, in the long term I would like video playback to be integrated into the playback engine. But it needs to work standalone first...
12:29:40pondlifeSomeone (jhMikeS, I think) had some very good ideas about sorting out playlist handling - playback.c shouldn't be doing any of that really.
12:30:27 Join roolku [0] (
12:30:38pondlifeWe need to specify and limit the functionality of each module. As I see it,playback.c should be responsible for buffering and debuffering only.
12:31:11pondlifeVoice should be mixed in seperately to PCM, so shouldn't be in there at all.
12:32:07Nico_Ppondlife: have you found who was wanting to do that wiki page ?
12:32:10pondlifeNeed to work out some simpler interfaces. And consider MASCODEC unification, maybe (although that's getting less important daily).
12:32:30pondlifeNico_P: No, I can't find out how to search only the IRC logs.
12:33:57grai_pondlife: blah -"mail archive"?
12:34:21Mikachualso works
12:34:41Nico_Ppondlife: you can use the standard google search box on the bottom of the site's sidebar... if you replace 'site:' by 'site:' it will only search on IRC logs
12:34:48preglowideally, integrating mascodec into playback.c should be trivial
12:35:16preglowbut if playback.c also does stuff like playlist handling, i can see why that is not so...
12:35:48pondlifeIt just needs a good disentangling, for want of a better word.
12:36:11Mikachuyou're not looking for this?
12:36:47JdGordonplayback shuoldnt do playlist handling tho...
12:37:17pondlifeCorrect. It doesn't do much, but it does stuff like "play next track"
12:37:33pondlifeWhich should be the same as "play track 08" or whatever.
12:37:45 Join pixelma [0] (i=pixelma@
12:37:58pondlifei.e. handled at a higher level, with less interface
12:38:29Nico_Ppondlife: it still needs to know in which order to play the files, doesn't it ?
12:38:42pondlifeYes, for buffering.
12:39:50JdGordondosnt playback only need to know which tracks to buffer next? and then be able to skip around inside the buffer? i
12:40:29pondlifeThe actual playback should be continuous in buffer sequence (with gapless), unless it's told to switch tracks.
12:41:14pondlifeHow well does it handle buffering of a shuffled playlist across multiple folders at the moment?
12:44:34LloreanIf you have an actual static playlist, shuffled, that contains multiple folders, they don't seem to present any problem from a user perspective at least
12:44:50 Part norbusan
12:45:37pondlifeBut does it buffer them all, or is there a hard disk read when it changes folders?
12:45:55LloreanI believe it buffers them, though I can't say with a certainty
12:46:00pondlifeIt's probably ok, I'm just thinking aloud here.
12:46:31LloreanI'm basing this on an "I don't remember spinups on track skips immediately after filling the buffer"
12:47:05Bagderrfolders or not makes no different when used in a single playlist
12:47:14amiconnLlorean: For some archos targets rombox still works: Ondio FM (very tight), Ondio SP, and Player
12:47:22Lloreanamiconn: Yeah, it's just the recorder.
12:47:39amiconnRecorder FM/V2 and V1 are currently above limit
12:47:44JdGordonwell... if you want to destry rombox on the ondios, enable a-b repeat
12:48:01amiconnNot on the SP I'd expect
12:48:04Nico_PBagderr: has this : been dropped ?
12:48:22*pondlife must have imagined the whole wiki-for-playback-reworking conversation as he can't find it in the logs :(
12:48:24pixelmaJdGordon: I wondered why it adds about 1200 bytes anyways
12:48:28amiconnOn the FM, it's currently enough to enable backlight support to push rombox over the edge
12:49:00amiconnBut there's at least one method to regain a few KB without removing any feature
12:49:09JdGordonpixelma: I dunno... 1200 bytes isnt that much tho... it could possibly be optimized, but who knows..
12:49:19 Quit jba (Read error: 145 (Connection timed out))
12:49:44JdGordonthe one method isnt heavy optimization is it?
12:50:22Slasheripreglow: almost, bootloader and new flashing plugin still needs to be committed. After that, rombox works
12:50:24Bagderrnico_p: I guess so
12:50:38pixelmabtw. JdGordon: (another story) I really think that button actions for plugins is more of a problem than a help, because most plugins need different solutions for intuitive controls (the use of the scroll wheel for example)
12:51:10amiconnSlasheri: Don't forget a check that prevents flashing when running from rom. Otherwise it'd crash when using core functions from the plugin...
12:51:17amiconnrockbox_flash does that
12:51:22JdGordonpixelma: for games yes, I agree, but the utility apps shouldnt need their own keymaps
12:51:40Slasheriamiconn: the same check is already present

21:27:36gotthardtthanks amiconn how can i do that (irc newbe)
21:27:38DraXis tagcache always going to be big endian?
21:27:38*amiconn usually has that option enabled, no problems so far
21:27:53DraXlike across the various players
21:28:11amiconnIf I get spammed, I can still disable it
21:28:38gotthardtamiconn - how do i enable?
21:28:43SlasheriDraX: in future, different endianessnes will be supported
21:28:54amiconn/msg nickserv set unfiltered on
21:29:00DraXSlasheri: and so i shouldn't assume big-endian while writing a reader?
21:29:26DraXi'm writing a xmms2 <-> rockbox syncer
21:29:26SlasheriDraX: well, it depends. For iriver it's big endian, and for ipod the opposite
21:29:37Slasherithat sounds interesting :)
21:29:41gotthardttoffe try pm now
21:29:58DraXI've got tagcache reading mostly done
21:30:10DraXbut i'm assuming big endian.. (it's big endian on my x5l
21:30:20jackfusionsoryy about this but this seems the only way that I can get help on here.
21:30:21jackfusionis there a way to save files in the text editor?
21:30:34SlasheriDraX: btw, did you check the database pc code? (make database in tools-directory)
21:30:50Slasheriit already has some ported functionality of tagcache for pc
21:30:56DraXSlasheri: no i didn't, but i'm writing it in python
21:31:03Slasheriah, ok :)
21:31:03amiconngotthardt: This option will stick even across sessions, no need to set it on every logon

21:32:14amiconnpixelma, gotthardt_ That patch will work, but will mess up the settings block on gigabeats
21:32:49 Join spiorf [0] (
21:32:57amiconnInserting or removing setting bits from the middle of the block will (obviously) shift all subsequent bits
21:33:33amiconnThe solution is to bump the config block version when doing such changes.
21:34:39amiconnThis will render the old settings invalid and hence reset them to defaults (unfortunately for all targets)
21:35:08amiconnThere's a patch in the works to get rid of this binary settings block, but it's not yet ready for inclusion
21:40:50SlasheriDraX: nice
21:41:41DraXSlasheri: yeah i've not really been sure how to sync the two because i don't even know what's in one and not in the other
21:41:51DraXSlasheri: so I figured I could toss something together real quick to resolve the issue
21:42:53 Quit scubacoles (Remote closed the connection)
21:43:50SlasheriDraX :) checking tagcache.h should give you a quick overview what it's capable of doing and which tags are supported atm
21:44:14gotthardtthx pixelma - that should do it
21:44:22DraXSlasheri: yup
21:44:43DraXSlasheri: I'm just grabbing url, title, artist, album for each song
21:45:02DraXSlasheri: then calculating an md5 on the url, and checking if a song with the same artist, album, title is in medialib and if the md5sums match
21:45:16DraXSlasheri: and if it's not copying it over.
21:45:50Slasheribtw, what is the url?
21:45:56DraXSlasheri: the path
21:46:01Slasheriah, ok
21:46:02DraXSlasheri: xmms2 just stores them as urls

21:48:38DraXSlasheri: especially rockbox -> xmms2

21:49:32Slasherifor writing tagcache, i would suggest using the C-code directly
21:49:59tucozthe iphone do look cool.
21:50:00DraXmaybe i'll toss together some bindings for it
21:50:14Slasherior then modifies could be done through an ascii changelog too
21:50:31DraXSlasheri: i'd rather just do it all directly on the tagcache db
21:50:55Slasheriyeah, that would be better indeed if possible
21:51:06DraXi actually don't think a writer would be _too_ hard
21:51:40jackfusioncan't some one just port to podwrite
21:52:13Slasheriit's just easier to use tagcache code for that because the commit sequence is not that simple. It needs to sort certain tags and reindex them in master index
21:52:40DraXyeah i know the index needs to be redone
21:52:43DraXsince it's just offsets
21:52:49DraXand if the length of the string changed it would mess up the offset
21:53:31DraXpython actually had a really great module for doing this
21:53:42DraXstruct, it can pack, and unpack structs and calculate their size

23:40:17Bagderand zagor has viewvc running
23:40:53Zagorbehold the beauty at
23:41:13Zagorneeds a wash and rinse, but at least it's up
23:42:42Nico_Pwhat's all that's under "branches/" ?
23:43:03dan_aIt's looking good :D
23:43:22BagderNico_P: it is the common way to do branching using svn
23:43:38Mikachuyou probably can't check that out on windows, rockbox and Rockbox :)
23:43:38Bagdersvn doesn't do branches like cvs
23:43:48Arathisdan_a: 'patch -p0 < arm-asm-memcpy.diff'?
23:43:53Mikachu(not that you'd want to check out /branches/ anyway)
23:44:03 Quit tvelocity ("Αποχώρησε")
23:44:08dan_aArathis: either p0 or p1
23:44:08Nico_PBagder: i'm not really familiar with the concept :)
23:44:34Nico_Pit's an alternative version ?
23:44:44Bagderthey're all just dirs
23:44:51Bagderbut we work on 'trunk'
23:45:03Bagderand we do "branches" or "tags" by copying trunk to another dir
23:45:10bluebrother^Zagor, clicking a "diff to previous <number>" fails.
23:45:51Zagorbluebrother^: thanks, I'll look at that

23:46:36dan_aBagder: Are we planning to make use of the branches? Or carry on the way we did with CVS
23:46:49BagderI think we can carry on like before
23:46:49 Quit Stalwart (Remote closed the connection)
23:46:56Bagderuntil we find a reason to change
23:47:08bluebrother^btw, regarding this reorganisation-wiki-manual-website-everything mail: is it possible mod_rewrite-ing the twiki/bin/view/Main/<pagename> thing to say simply /wiki/<pagename>?
23:47:19Bagderit really should be
23:47:31Bagderand yes, that'd be nice ;-)
23:47:51Mikachuthe tricky part is making the links point to /wiki/<pagename>
23:47:58bluebrother^changing the links in the manual should be an easy run :D
23:48:48Bagderwe need to poke on more server admins to convert to svn
23:48:58Bagderwe're only 8 servers done atm
23:49:20Bagderthe nice part is that the script detects the bad servers by itself
23:49:22 Join Stalwart [0] (
23:50:00pixelmaZagor: I hope it's not only my fault - but "annotate" fails too
23:50:09Mikachuwhy do insects fly into ears, what do they expect to find?
23:50:47 Quit ender` (" Marriage is not a word, it's a sentence. A life sentence...")
23:52:27 Quit petur ("sssssssssss---------PLOP!")
23:52:53Zagorpixelma: ok. the script is running in a chroot, so it requires a bit extra hand-holding to set up
23:54:06Nico_PBagder: do the build servers have to recompile everything at each commit ?
23:54:21Bagderyes, unless ccache saves them from doing it
23:54:48Nico_Pcouldn't they try svn up to minimise what needs recompiling ?
23:55:01Bagderthey do svn up
23:55:13Bagderand we want the full builds for test
23:55:18Bagderand we want the zips for download
23:55:19Nico_Pah, so they don't keep what they've compiled ?
23:55:39Bagderwe want all commits to be able to build fully from scratch
23:55:47Bagderso we don't keep anything
23:55:55LloreanNico_P: How exactly do I do what you described with −−limit? What's it an argument for?
23:56:08BagderLlorean: "svn log −−limit 10"
23:56:14LloreanI just tried that
23:56:15Bagderto list the 10 last entries
23:56:16LloreanAs in, exactly that.
23:56:17Nico_Pi use svn log -v −−limit 5
23:56:31LloreanInvalid option: −−limit
23:56:55Bagderwhat svn version?
23:57:08LloreanWow, 1.1.4
23:57:45LloreanI just apt-get installed it on the old vmware image.
23:57:51LloreanWhich is of course, debian stable.
23:58:01Bagderah, right
23:58:27LloreanWell at least my ancient technology didn't mess anything else up.
