#rockbox log for 2007-01-30

00:00:00Mikachui meant the exponent, but i just realized 1*4 is also 4 ;)
00:00:29amiconnMeh, and you aren't midkay
00:00:39amiconnToo many mi... nicks ;)
00:01:05 Quit spiorf_ (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:01:36amiconnLinusN: Btw, I'm not sure whether this causes a visible effect, but without testing we won't find out
00:02:02LinusNi guess it would make us sleep better :-)
00:02:07amiconnMMCs >1GB have block sizes of 1KB, >2GB have block sizes of 2KB
00:02:20amiconnSo the MMC driver needs to cache blocks anyway
00:02:39 Part gilligan_ ("Leaving")
00:02:57amiconnThis is similar to what I suggested for the large ata sectors, but still somewhat different in that the filesystem is still based on 512-byte sectors

00:04:10 Part n1s
00:04:36amiconnHowever, the internal flash has plain 512 byte blocks, and I think that MMCs >4GB (MMC 4.2 standard) can have 512 byte blocks as well because the block count isn't limited by the CSD format anymore
00:05:31 Quit Wiwie (No route to host)
00:05:46 Quit Vyrus001 ("Leaving")
00:05:47amiconnThe MMC protocol and CSD format (up to MMC4.1) is rather short-sighted
00:06:01LinusNwhat a surprise :-)
00:06:25amiconnIt uses byte addressing with a 32 bit address, and the block count encoding also limits it to <4GB (what a coincidence)
00:06:27***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
00:06:57amiconnMMC4.0 introduces and EXT_CSD, and MMC4.2 puts the block count there (don't know the format yet) and introduces block addressing

00:07:24*amiconn hopes you get what I mean
00:07:48Mikachui did, so most likely LinusN did too :)
00:08:18amiconnSo MMC4.2 is good for up to 2TB (with 512-byte blocks)
00:09:22*LinusN understood

00:14:17amiconnI think that on hdd target buffering multiple sectors is always better, especially with optimised transfers
00:15:49LinusNok, i'll change the code
00:16:38amiconnI guess you need to do a similar thing with the fat sectors?

00:35:56LinusNit could be bad handling of deleted files or something
00:35:57amiconnI only get this behaviour on the internal flash (which is fat16, but since this is not in the root dir I don't see why that should matter)

00:38:28mattzzJdGordon: l. 346
00:40:29JdGordonok, whats the problem? (apart from button_curr being unintitialised :P )
00:41:57mattzzJdGordon: when I press and hold MEM_MON_MODE (=PLA_FIRE_REPEAT) the if-statement in line 348 is true. Thus the function is repeatedly entered :-/
00:42:33mattzzJdGordon: I dont understand how this can be, because button_prev should equal button_curr then.
00:42:58JdGordonwhy dont you remove the PLA_FIRE_REPEAT from MEM_MN_MODE?
00:43:40JdGordonthats odd tho
00:43:45mattzzBecause I need this "key" to switch the mode. PLA_FIRE has a different action than PLA_FIRE_REPEAT.
00:44:20mattzzwhen I print out button_prev, it is always zero ... o_O
00:44:39JdGordonwell, the only thing that looks odd is you dont set button_prev to ACTION_NONE to start with'
00:44:40mattzzbutton_curr = ox6e
00:44:48amiconnLinusN: The entries in question don't even cross sector boundaries (checked with winhex) - very puzzling...
00:45:25amiconnTwo of them are located in the same sector
00:45:57twistis there a hack to change the scoll speed on an ipod?
00:46:22mattzzJdGordon: it used to work before I switched to PLA, which is odd
00:46:40JdGordonof course :p

03:25:20LloreanI dunno. I had no problems with it, though I didn't do prolonged testing
03:25:22safetydanbah now I can't reproduce it
03:25:49LloreanSince the EQ was majorly stuffed the instant you moved the LS on the Gigabeat, I just tested the LS and a middle band for a few seconds, then said "Okay, it doesn't have the problem my gigabeat does."
03:26:42safetydanThat was basically the problem I had. I enabled the EQ, tweaked the LS down 0.5 dB and the music started skipping. Set it to 0 dB skipping stops.

10:36:45LloreanThe buzzing constantly increases in pitch.
10:37:20preglowwell, it really is quite improbable that the eq routines work on other arms, but not gigabeat, so i'd count on something messing up the filter history/coefs or something for now
10:39:28Lloreanpreglow: well is another ARM
10:40:23Lloreansafetydan: How can I revert to a specific revision with SVN?
10:40:29preglowwell, in the case it bugs out on all arms, the eq code still hasn't changed for months
10:40:33safetydanLlorean, svn update -r 12119
10:40:34 Join XavierGr [0] (
10:40:55Lloreansafetydan: Update... okay. I was trying to guess which command it was.
10:40:59Lloreanpreglow: Gotcha
10:41:20amiconnLinusN: Thinking a bit more about your reverted approach, I found that there is a fundamental problem with always reading sectors in pairs.
10:41:42LinusNamiconn: i have been thinking aboiut that too
10:41:47preglowand the last time i updated the eq, i made sure to scan the entire parameter range to make sure overflowing should not occur
10:41:53amiconnOn volumes with single-sector clusters, directories with an odd number of sectors would need special handling
10:42:02LinusNamiconn: exactly
10:42:15LinusNand it sucks! :-)
10:42:21safetydanpreglow, I think I have an idea of what's going on. What would happen if the default cutoff value for the low-shelf was 0?
10:42:28preglowsafetydan: something bad
10:42:42safetydanwell guess what the default is after JdGordon's settings update? :)
10:43:02preglowthe filters don't handle 0 as a cutoff at all
10:43:08preglowit's not a value you should ever pass
10:43:24*amiconn thinks that with sector caching in ata.c, there would already be a working rockbox on G5.5/80
10:43:26LloreanAlright, I'll skip copying 12119 to my player for now then
10:43:37safetydanLlorean, probably. Sorry about the wild goose chase
10:43:56Lloreansafetydan: Nah, it's always worth testing something if it needs testing. That's why I've got all these varying players. :)
10:43:59LinusNamiconn: yes, but i think sector caching is the wrong way to solve this
10:44:22amiconnI'm still not convinced. fat.c seems to be more complex than it looks
10:44:42amiconnI agree that this 3-sector memcpy()ing buffer is ugly though
10:45:38LinusNi think sector caching would solve the issues with the complex ata.c by adding more complexity

11:06:43preglowwould anyone happen to know?
11:07:10preglowdoing 10^(fixedpointnumber) will yield a very, very large number
11:07:46Mikachudon't you have to write a 10_exp_fixedpoint() first?
11:08:14preglowthat's what i'm wondering
11:08:25*petur stores all his stuff in tombo - there's both a windows and pocketpc version and it uses blowfish
11:08:33Mikachuit was my understanding that most fp operations needed specially written functions
11:08:39Lloreansafetydan: The only problem being that changing the defaults doesn't help much since settings don't reset any more.
11:08:45preglowMikachu: most arithmetic just uses the regular operators
11:09:12preglowLlorean: no, we'll need people to reset
11:09:13amiconnHmm, this new irc log reader has too much colour for my taste...
11:09:18Lloreanpreglow: I already told them to on the forums.
11:09:24preglowamiconn: the colour helps me to see what i want, really
11:09:30amiconnAre the plain text logs still available for download somewhere
11:09:52LloreanWell, current.txt is at least.
11:09:57preglowLlorean: did a new default help before, though? it wouldn't reset then either, unless you bumped the version
11:09:58LloreanI think the plain logs *need* to be available though
11:10:00Bagderamiconn: they're still present like before I believe, just there are no links atm
11:10:06amiconnpreglow: It looks like xchat - every nick has its own colour. One reason why I don't like xchat
11:10:09safetydanLlorean, ah, that is a bit of a problem
11:10:13LinusNamiconn: how big is your fat16 partition?
11:10:17preglowxchat is crap
11:10:22Bagderamiconn: xchat doesn't _have to_ do that you know
11:10:26Mikachusurely that function is optional in xchat
11:10:34BagderI disabled it a long time ago
11:10:38LinusNi like xchat, and i use coloured nicks
11:10:41preglowand i just use good, good irssi
11:10:44amiconnBagder: Yes, true, but xchat doesn't allow to use colours the way I would want them
11:10:47Lloreanpreglow: That's true. Being a slight bastard, I would've bumped the version to force a reset if I felt I couldn't depend on users to do it.
11:11:00amiconnHydrairc does, though
11:11:12preglowwell, we'll just have to be more careful with the default settings from now on
11:11:13BagderI don't like colored nicks at all
11:11:25amiconnLinusN: It's just the internal flash of the Ondio, i.e. ~122MB ("128MB")
11:11:30preglowi like having them coloured when someone speaks to me, and that's pretty much that
11:11:34preglowfound it neat in the reader, though
11:11:38Bagderyeah, that's what I use too
11:11:40LinusNamiconn: can i have a binary dump for testing?
11:11:54amiconnHmm, not now
11:12:07amiconnI could make a dump, but I'd need a place to upload it

12:55:36Lloreandecayedcell: And VMWare just requires installing the VMWare player, runs much faster than cygwin, and the image is completely enclosed so it's easy to clean up after.
12:55:39SoapI never go my cygwin install (with source) above 1GB.
12:55:43amiconnSoap: cygwin runs directly under windows, so I can use my favourite editor and don't have to access the source files via samba
12:55:54amiconn(which would be a problem w/o the vm running)
12:56:06Soapbah - samba makes it just like another drive - can still use your favorite editor!
12:56:11Genre9mp3samba works quite well though
12:56:21scorcheSoap: but you ahve to ahve the vm running
12:56:22Soapoh - yea - w/o the vm running is a different issue.
12:56:23decayedcellLlorean cygwin is really only limited to one folder I believe
12:56:32amiconnSoap: Yes, and all programs become dead slow if they remember the share and it isn't available
12:56:39Soapunless you mount a windows drive as your /home.....
12:56:45amiconnAlso, vmware / colinux need far more ram than cygwin
12:56:47Lloreandecayedcell: True. It's a lot more frustrating to deal with in regards to configuration than the VMWare kit though, just because it seems so easy for users to mess up.
12:57:00LloreanBut I think each has its points.
12:57:06Soapamiconn: ? colinux never uses more that 32, and isn't allowed to use more than 64.
12:57:08LloreanI used to use Cygwin, but this computer is quite happy with VMWare.
12:57:35SoapI rarely see it use more than 16.
12:57:51Genre9mp3I used to use Cygwin, too but after using VMware it seems to me that is really slow so never went back
12:58:59Genre9mp3besides I apt-get installed gedit so I can edit my files easily without using samba

14:49:27*jhMikeS is absolutely sure he'll have to mess around with that at some point
14:49:31preglowyou won't be using the same technique
14:50:10preglowi'm starting to think we'll just go the iriver route with resampling
14:50:36preglowiir filter and interpolation when downsampling, fir filters when upsampling
14:51:04preglowboth of which will be vastly slower than what we do now
14:51:22preglowalso, we can't just precalc the coefs like iriver probably do :/
14:51:22jhMikeSI'm sure I won't use the same technique but I think I'll understand how to approach and design things as a result.
14:52:12preglowand designing elliptical filters will probably be real, real fun in fixed point
14:52:20preglowit's a bloody nightmare in floating point, ffs
14:53:52jhMikeSwell, I got the pulse synthesis pretty much perfect in fixed point with a noise floor around -120db or so. It's those integrators which thrive on low frequencies that are bugging me. :)
14:55:15barrywardell_anyone know how i make the apple_os.ipod file for booting the ipod firmware from a file on disk?
14:55:33preglowjhMikeS: they've also bugged everyone else working with blits
14:55:35Lloreanbarrywardell_: ipodpatcher -rf apple_os.ipod if I recall?
14:55:40preglowi don't know of any definite solutions to the problem
14:56:30Lloreanbarrywardell_: Assuming the AppleOS still exists in your firmware partition, and you haven't already -wf'ed over it. As long as you've been using -a, it's still there and handy for extraction.
14:56:33jhMikeSpreglow: It's especially problematic with a triangle wave with two stages. I can do sawtooth in one with a single ended blit.

14:57:59 Quit Mouser_X (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
14:59:06jhMikeSIt seems to require quantization noise pushed to a higher band. It giggles up and down a bit otherwise it seems because of low frequencies from q noise being amplified.
14:59:45preglowyeah, i had that problem using floats
15:04:59jhMikeSThe triangle waveform itself is nice though but for that little bugger. Results atm are about the same scaling before or after the second integration.

15:10:52preglowjhMikeS: btw, do you handle freq sweeping nicely yet?
15:11:43jhMikeSpreglow: That was no problem. I even abused it with square waves hopping around sounding like R2D2 and it didn't blink.
15:12:10preglowjhMikeS: so you're adding the last harmonic separately?
15:12:34jhMikeSno. haven't gotten to the popping out thing yet.
15:12:51preglowwhen you cut out harmonics as the sweep freq goes higher, you'll have popping
15:12:58preglowwhich can only be solved by adding the last harmonic separately
15:14:10Hdaackdaumm guys sorry to interrupt but does the recording work for ipod videos?
15:14:19jhMikeSAt least over the range it needs attenuation as long as it's low enough to not be heard
15:14:21preglowit doesn't work for any ipods, afaik
15:14:24preglowbut i don't know

16:27:46directhex|workhow does battery life compare on the iaudio x5 between the official & rockbox firmwares? there are figures for ipods, plus older archoses & irivers
16:29:01Lloreandirecthex|work: I don't think anyone's actually done a *proper* test yet.
16:29:04linuxstbdirecthex|work: Results are posted by users - feel free to do some tests yourself. AFAIK, the runtimes are similar in the official firmware and Rockbox on the X5.
16:29:26LloreanMostly what you hear is mostly "Well, I got X hours, but I was playing Doom for 2 of them, and skipped around a lot" and such
16:29:33LloreanThe general feeling I get though is that they're very close.
16:30:09Moosyep they are IIRC
16:30:19LloreanI think Rockbox may be slightly worse, but then people seem to want to enable a bunch of power draining features in Rockbox.
16:31:10LloreanSo you get "My X5 is supposed to run 29 hours in the retail firmware, and I only got 24 with a graphical WPS, using the equalizer, crossfeed, replaygain, and a caption timer on the backlight while playing Oggs!"

16:32:35directhex|workall i really care about is a library and vorbis playback

16:34:06directhex|workLlorean, yes, i do know it's removable. but at this moment in time there is *no* player whose stock firmware matches my needs, so (for example) an ipod with standard firmware is useless to me since my collection is all vorbis
16:34:19linuxstbdirecthex|work: The X5's hardware is very similar to the iriver h1x0/h3x0, where Rockbox outperforms the original firmware in battery life.

16:37:28goffaactually on the gigabeat.. does everything except recording and fm
16:37:33GodEaterit's a shame rio decided to fit such a crappy harddrive in the Karma
16:37:37LloreanBut if you need recording features, you want to look at the H100, and if you need ridiculous battery life (greater than 16ish to 19ish hours) the X5L is where to look.

17:22:55LloreanThis especially applies to installers, regardless of whether they install outdated versions of the bootloader.
17:23:30LloreanAnd Loader 2 for iPL is particularly popular because it offers a menu. A good chunk of iPod users are using our software for games, and are perfectly happy with the original firmware for music.

20:20:56amiconnAnd yes, afaik spider uses 10 columns, hence it should be possible to support LCDs of 160x128 and up
20:21:07linuxstbSorry about the multiple nicks, I generally move between my laptop and desktop during the evening so have two IRC clients open.
20:21:23amiconnFreecell would be a little less demanding - only 8 columns
20:21:24linuxstbYes, I forgot about the aspect ratio.
20:22:46amiconnSo the only targets not (practically) supportable in spider would be the archoses, the iFP and the minis

20:23:56amiconnOh, and the small H10
20:24:29amiconnI can't see how a lib would help. Our displays are generally small, so the cards should be as large as possible on each target

20:48:29|Rincewind|the problem is, there are a lot of function calls in settings.c that apply the settings but I don't know if that means that I have to write a function that does this, too.
20:49:04|Rincewind|they look like this: " spdif_power_enable(global_settings.spdif_enable);"

20:49:31amiconnDepends on whether your code is apps or firmware
20:49:56amiconnCode in firmware must not access global_settings directly, hence the settings must be applied explicitly

21:18:27BiptoNi don't know if it's from the hard drive or other parts
21:18:28linuxstb_Because it's not finished.
21:18:57linuxstb_The code in SVN is no more than a proof-of-concept.
21:19:18linuxstb_There's no gain control, and there's a good chance the ADC isn't configured optimally.

21:49:41GodEaterjust not the 2G of course
21:50:31Terinjokesnaturally, its downloading in ipsw format... is this like a dd'd image or something (i know iTunes uses it... but I don't have iTunes)

23:10:53amiconnMikachu:"> and
23:10:55bluebrothertex is ASCII per default, but we use inputenc to be able using latin1
23:11:12bluebrotherthere is also support for utf8 but that's not part of a standard installation
23:11:38bluebrotherbut I'd prefer using utf8 for the manual completely instead of iconv'ing the credits file

23:15:09bluebrotherthat works but produces a ? for me
23:15:33*bluebrother goes reading the iconv man page
23:16:06Mikachuif they're like other man pages from gnu it will be empty and refer to `info iconv`
23:16:13preglowMikachu: latex does have some utf8 support, no?
23:16:21preglowi'm almost certain i've used utf8 with it
23:16:37Mikachulast time i checked i couldn't find any at least
23:16:46bluebrotherI use utf8 for latex here mostly exclusively
23:17:29amiconnAnyway, replacing that accented s by a plain one would help on target as well (both bitmap targets with the majority of available fonts and the player's charcell display), but perhaps it would in fact be better to make full use of utf-8 instead??
23:17:41Zagoramiconn: a present for you:
23:18:55*bluebrother sed'ed the dates from the table an hour or so ago
23:19:15bluebrotherbut it was ugly as hell, I should learn sed a bit more ;-)

23:26:20preglowZagor: i think perhaps the nick colours need some capping
23:26:28preglowZagor: reading bright yellow on white isn't easy ;)
23:26:48Zagorheh, yeah
23:27:12preglowthe colour limits would depend on the background colour, but i expect your script knows what that is
23:27:38Zagorfor some reason green seems to be the worst color to max out

23:34:11Zagorso the question is what a good cap algorithm would be. we want the f:s, otherwise all the colors gets gray and bland.
23:34:13mattzzthanks. Another one bites the dust ;)
23:34:29bospaadjehi all, i have installed rockbox on my ipod nano today and i'm having this problem:
23:34:38Zagorwe just don't want many f:s on the same nick, especially green

23:35:10bospaadjecan anyone point me to where i can find the source code to apply the patch to, and instructions on how to build (config options)?
23:35:34Zagorthere is probably massive amounts of research on this somewhere :)
23:36:50bluebrotherZagor: is it possible to detect alternate nicks, i.e. with _ or similar at the end?
23:37:03bospaadjeseen that, i don't see where it points me to the source code to apply it to
23:37:04MikachuZagor: does your .pl print nick changes now?
23:37:08Zagorbluebrother: this is perl, everything is possible :)
23:37:10Mikachui don't remember if i said it to you or the ether
23:37:20ZagorMikachu: yes, if you show joins
23:37:27bospaadjethough there is a link to 'using svn' - reading that now
23:38:08bluebrotherthe language that is automatically obfuscating itself? ;-)
23:38:30Zagorbluebrother: unfortunately there's not really a standard for alt nicks. people use nickwork and nicklaptop and whatnot that is impossible to detect
23:38:36MikachuNick Lloreanis now known as Paul_the_Nerd
23:38:38Zagorbluebrother: yeah, it's write-only :)
23:38:39Mikachumissing a space there
23:39:20bluebrotherhmm. But detecting added _ and ^ would be a nice start, wouldn't it? At least quite some use that.
23:39:37Zagorbluebrother: yup

23:39:50bluebrotheror maybe stripping all characters outside of [a-zA-Z0-9]
23:40:14Zagorespecially since I completely ignore nicks with css-illegal characters. that's why [IDC]Dragon got black, for example.
23:40:20Mikachufreenode has a policy for altnicks but i don't think anyone follows it :)

23:40:38Zagorsome escape tricks would probably be good for those
23:40:44bluebrotherhmm, I wasn't even aware of that ;-)
23:43:42bospaadjehmm if i understand this correctly i have to download the source through svn, even if I only want to use it myself to apply a patch and build it, right?
23:44:07Soul-Slayer Direct link to source
23:44:55bospaadjeis that link on the website somewhere? cause that would mean i've missed it
23:44:55bluebrotheryou need to use svn if you want some older release than the current bleeding edge
23:45:00ZagorMikachu: space added
23:45:15Soul-SlayerIt's with all the bleeding edge builds
23:45:16bluebrotherbospaadje: look at the current build page

23:46:36Soapand if you are going to be doing builds on a frequent basis, bospaadje, SVN will download just the new stuff, as opposed to downloading the entire thing every time.
23:47:13bluebrotherhmm, so how should we address the iconv problem? Adding -c as a first fix?
23:47:16bospaadjeyeah, i figured that.. for now i'm just trying this one patch
23:47:31Soul-Slayerbos, may I be nosy and ask which one :P?

23:52:14bospaadjewhat was?
23:52:44Soul-SlayerWell, are you referring to your ipod?
23:52:53noodrooghey, im having a problem getting the logger to work in rockbox for ipod video, when i select 'keep' log it tells me to reset the ipod, but even when i do that the 'no' option remains selected
23:53:18bospaadjelol, no
23:53:28bospaadjemy comment was a reaction to Soap
23:53:39bospaadje'what has the world come to?'
23:53:41Soul-SlayerIf you were, that would be the quickest patching/building/updating job I've ever seen
23:53:42Soul-SlayerHeh :p
23:53:52Soapare you shuting down your ipod cleanly (long press of play)? Or are you doing the hard-reset (menu+select)?
23:54:04Soapnoodroog: ^
23:54:23Soapthere you go.
23:54:30noodroogit said to reset it...

23:54:58SoapI /thought/ it said to "restart" it, but if it is saying reset that should be changed.
23:55:07noodroogwell it says reboot
23:55:12noodroogwhich i assumed meant reset :o
23:55:19noodroogtrying it now anyway
23:55:35noodroogaha seems to be working now :)
23:56:06noodrooganother problem though, every so often my ipod random defaults to the default rockbox settings when i turn it on (eg wiping out the bass and volume settings i had stored), is there a reason for that?
