00:01:43bluebrotherthere is no locale-all for my distro
00:01:48bospaadjewhat's this arm-elf-gcc compiler i need?
00:02:09bluebrotherit's a gcc that compiles for an arm target
00:02:14bluebrotheralso known as cross-compiler
00:02:21Zagorbluebrother: right, but the fact that locale-all apparently fixed it (haven't tried myself) indicates the problem is a missing locale
00:02:53safetydannoodroog, do you have the hold switch on when you turn on your iPod?
00:02:58 Join GliTch_ [0] (
00:03:05safetydanIIRC that causes a settings reset.
00:03:56bluebrotherhmm. /usr/lib/locale has 376 entries ...

00:05:11noodroog<safetydan> noodroog, do you have the hold switch on when you turn on your iPod?
00:05:13bluebrotheris there anything newer around? Haven't checked yet
00:05:16noodroogyeah i probably do it by mistake
00:05:20noodroogis there any way to turn that off?
00:06:26safetydannoodroog, no. It's a feature.

00:13:05Mikachuthat would be the compiler

00:13:57Mikachuinstead of doing that you can read the instructions on the wiki

00:24:35dantjeHi. I just downloaded rockbox current for my Sansa e250 plus fonts, then unzipped both files to the root dir of the Sansa, unplugged USB and power-cycled. No visible change. Did I miss something?
00:24:59TrueJournalsYou need to download the bootloader
00:25:06TrueJournalsLook in the manual for instructions
00:25:26TrueJournals( )

00:25:57dantjeOk, will do. Thanks. I'll RTFM myself in the corner...
00:26:12TrueJournalsunfortunately... the manual's 2.2.3. Installing the boot loader section seems to be empty

00:27:15TrueJournalsGo here for instructions:
00:27:34n1sMaybe because the sansa port doesn't have sound yet no-one thought non-dev people would install it?
00:27:54 Part n1s
00:28:05TrueJournalsyeah, looking at the status page, it seems like the sansa port is in a VERY early stage
00:28:30TrueJournalsdantje: you might want to hold off on installing for now... follow the port, and wait till it's actually.. well.. useable :-\
00:28:31dantjeAh yes, the devenv is compiling in the other window :-)
00:28:58TrueJournalsah, so you are a dev?
00:30:23dantjeWell, never did something with rockbox, but I manage to make a living of developing software...

00:55:17zylcheohh, and I keep getting "incompatible model" coming up, upgraded the correct model [ipod video] to the latest version
00:56:03safetydanzylche, you haven't upgrade properly then. Make sure you overwrite rockbox.ipod and the .rockbox folder
00:56:36*zylche removes the folder and file and re-extracts them
00:56:38linuxstb_heavylaythecrown: Then forget mpegplayer, it's designed for devices without special video decoding hardware. You should stick to the Apple firmware.

00:56:51maretardhey everybody, just wondering, how do you apply a patch?!?
00:57:08TrueJournalsmaretard: What OS are you running?
00:57:13heavylaythecrownbut does mpegplayer allow me to play video on the rockbox side?
00:57:35maretardiriver h10 20gig, latest daily build of rockbox
00:57:41maretardsweet, thanks a bunch!
00:57:49linuxstb_Yes, but not using the ipod video's video decoding hardware, so it is nowhere near as good as the Apple firmware.
00:58:14heavylaythecrownjust out of curiosity, why isnt video supported yet? is it hard to implement?
00:58:22maretardoh btw, i managed to get video working on my h10, but the framerate lags behind the audio like a MOTHER
00:58:31maretardis there any setting i can configure for this?
00:58:53maretardapparently i'm supposed to apply a patch enabling my second core to decode the video, but that's why i need to apply the patch first ^_^
00:59:17TrueJournalsmaretard: Not really.. the kernel_on_cop patch should help a little, but mpegplayer is still very buggy
00:59:24linuxstb_heavylaythecrown: Assuming that you're asking why Rockbox doesn't use the ipod video's undocumented video decoding chip, it's because it's undocumented.
00:59:32TrueJournalsYou might want to change the skip frames setting in mpegplayer to On
00:59:47maretardi am skipping frames, but then the video is barely viewable
00:59:49 Quit funky ("leaving")
00:59:54maretardit's like 0.5 fps T_T
01:00:02 Join funky [0] (n=repulse@unaffiliated/funky)
01:00:22TrueJournalsThen the kernel_on_cop patch should help
01:00:27heavylaythecrownlinuxstb_: does ipodlinux support video playback?
01:00:29markunmaretard: buy a Gigabeat :)
01:00:33maretardok, i'm looking at the patch manual, but how am i supposed to apply it?
01:00:36maretardhahahaha :D
01:00:41linuxstb_maretard: You need the kernel_on_cop patch for anything like reasonable playback.
01:00:45TrueJournalsIf you want, I can make a build for you real quick (I have everything downloaded)
01:00:50maretardoh sweet
01:01:00maretardthat would be awesome!
01:01:00TrueJournalsjust give me like 5 minutes...
01:01:07maretardcoolcool, no problem! :D
01:01:27linuxstb_heavylaythecrown: It has video playback similar to Rockbox - i.e. not using the ipod video's video decoder.
01:01:51linuxstb_I'm not sure if the IPL video player even works on the ipod video.
01:02:08linuxstb_(I think it's just the Nano and Photo/Color)
01:02:23heavylaythecrownlinuxstb_: ok. so what is the best program to use to convert videos to an acceptable ipod format? ive had trouble in the past
01:02:42linuxstb_No idea - that's not a question for #rockbox

01:47:33maretardlow processing power?
01:47:36barrywardellsomething to do with setting the cpu frequency
01:47:47barrywardellit probably affects other targets too
01:47:47maretardwell i've noticed that the H's tend to be weak as hell
01:47:54maretardrockbox actually LAGS on mine
01:48:04barrywardellthe h10 has the same processing power as the ipods
01:48:11bospaadjehmm that pluginmpegplayer page looks promising for my ipod nano, i might try that out soon
01:48:14maretardwow O_O
01:48:14Soul-SlayerIt's practically the same thing

01:48:22barrywardellyes, they even have the same processor

01:49:07Soul-SlayerSoap: Does it lower performance for you with the patch applied?
01:49:14 Quit funky ("leaving")
01:49:28Soapyes, which is why I still remove 12120 and then apply KoCOP#6
01:50:22Soul-SlayerAnd that results in an increase in performance?
01:50:51Soapback to where things were before 12120
01:51:17Soul-SlayerWould you mind telling me what 12120 is?
01:51:20Soapbut you should try both ways and see if KoCOP#7 causes problems.
01:51:46SoapSVN commit #12120, the cleanup of playback.c which broke KoCOP#6
01:51:56Soul-SlayerAhh right, gotcha.

01:53:55barrywardellSoap: just remove the IDATA_ATTR from it
01:54:31barrywardellSoap: I can't see how it would make much difference, but you never know...
01:55:03barrywardellTrueJournals: I don't know about scrolling margins, but I know kernel_on_cop had problems with the ipod_set_cpu_frequency function
01:55:29TrueJournalsok, maybe I'll try removing that and see if it solves the problem..
01:55:30Soap#7 makes the iPod 5th gen. bog down dramaticly, Llorean confirms on his Nano.
01:55:48bospaadjejust curious, wat is kernel_on_cop?
01:56:13Soul-Slayerbospaadje: Takes advantage of the dual processors and loads the kernel from the coprocessor
01:56:14TrueJournalsthe PP5020 cpu has two cores... kernel_on_cop allows you to use both cores of the cpu
01:56:55Soul-SlayerCurrently however it seems flawed, in the way it makes things slower, completely the wrong effect
01:57:31bospaadjei gathered that much :)
01:58:12barrywardellTrueJournals: remove it from system_init() in firmware/system.c
01:58:35Soul-SlayerTo be honest, this is the one commit I have truly been looking forward to, full performance would be great :p.

02:50:55bospaadjebut i have the same problem
02:51:03Mikachuwell, then that patch isn't for you
02:51:10Mikachuit's a completely different lcd driver
02:51:58bospaadjeI was hoping it would work for ipod nano as well (as was the author of the patch apparently)
02:53:02Mikachuwell, it obviously won't work for ipod nano since the code he changed isn't even compiled for the nano :)
02:53:24bospaadjeuh, his latest version does
02:54:01bospaadje"#if defined(IPOD_MINI) || defined(IPOD_MINI2G) || defined(IPOD_COLOR) || define
02:54:02bospaadjed(IPOD_NANO) || defined(IPOD_3G) || defined(IPOD_4G)"
02:54:10Mikachuno, it doenst
02:54:17Mikachuthat ifdef is incorrect
02:54:35Mikachuhe probably didn't notice that lcd-ipod.c has two parts, one for bw and one for color ipods
02:55:03bospaadjeoh, so that's why it has an undefined reference

08:38:54webguest20Hi. What would you think about the following. There is the region setting for FM radio. What if we could put that setting into fmr-files? And it would be set if the file is loaded? Then the files would be self consistent. Like WPS files where it's possible to switch the status bar on or off.

09:38:18JdGordonshouldnt be too hard to add
09:38:42perplexityActually, I travel that much. I'd just never used the radio anywhere other than home coz it was always a pita
09:38:46pondlifeLinusN: Finally we meet!! Could you take a quick look at
09:39:21pondlifeBasically the questions are (1) should the H300 be drawing 500mA when USB charging
09:39:44pondlife(2) Is the reported current in Windows 2000 wrong?
09:39:55webguest20Well, that regional setting is not very relevant, the entries in the fmr file are. So the benefit won't be very great. But still... That setting belongs there IMHO
09:40:20LinusNpondlife: it should draw 500mA in "hub mode", iirc
09:41:10pondlifeSo 100mA charging is expected in Rockbox, based on our current (aha!) knowledge?
09:41:28pondlifeIf so, I will commit this
09:42:47pondlifeAlso, it seem that is wrong - as per Massa's comment. Do you agree?
09:43:15pondlifei.e. GPOOD2 is USB charge enable, not GPOOD0
09:43:45pondlifeIf so, do we know what GPOOD0 does?

09:48:15pondlifeIndeed. Did you do the original pin traces?
09:48:27LinusNyes i did
09:48:54pondlifeI did some software poking at GPOOD0, but it didn't produce any obvious effects!
09:49:20*pondlife kept an eye on his H340 for smoke.
09:49:56tucozLinusN: i think the high pitched buzzing is back in Slasheris bootloader for the h120
09:51:15LinusNtucoz: oh
09:51:16tucozthe occasional buzzing that is. as the fw is flashed, it only last for maybe half a second.
09:52:01tucozi have noticed it two times lately, and this was after i installed the newest bootlader
09:53:30tucozI remember you fixed that, some time in the summer in 2005.
09:54:39 Join wooo [0] (
09:54:53LinusNpondlife: my understanding is that you don't enable charging, but you instead set the allowed current draw (hi/low)
09:55:29Slasheritucoz: hmm, buzzing.. what do you mean with that?
09:56:13LinusNthe buzzing i fixed came from resetting the UDA1380
09:56:18pondlifeAll I can say is that GPOOD2 seems to control the charging, and that Win2K reports 100mA current draw with either setting.
09:56:45Slasheriah, weird.. then that might be an issue, iirc when loading ram/rom image, uda is not reset
09:57:39pondlifeWith pcf50606_write(0x39, 0x00) the reported battery % increases during connection, without it does not (or does slowly, maybe)
09:57:50Slasheribut rely on rockbox doing the reset
09:59:20LinusNpondlife: i'll see if i can find the time to do a trace later tiday
09:59:45tucozSlasheri: the issue was only on some h120's, and LinusN fixed it some time during the summer of 2005.
09:59:49pondlifeI'll keep an eye on the wiki

10:00:37tucozCould i check that somehow?
10:01:23pondlifeBagder: Hmm, so the Euro Sansa DOES have an FM tuner!
10:01:26tucozThat is with the remote right?
10:01:30pondlifeI missed that.
10:01:42pondlifeE200 is back on my list then

10:01:47LinusNtucoz: yes
10:02:04LinusNBagder: could be both :-)
10:02:15Bagderyes, it might differ
10:02:20*tucoz makes a mental note that he should try to find the old remote when he gets home
10:02:22LinusN"yes, we disable it in software, because the chip isn't mounted"
10:02:35pondlifeOr maybe some Euro ones are actually leftovers from elsewhere?
10:02:43BagderI actually asked specificly if the hw was different
10:02:52*LinusN recalls the Archos FM/V2 story
10:02:54pondlifeSo most have no chip, but occasionally one will have.
10:03:06Bagderyes I figure that might be the case

10:18:19pondlifeIt only affects the sim builds, right?
10:18:39pondlifeMaybe a nasty hack to the build system to mark some servers as non-sim only?

10:20:51GodEaterif the yellow in the build table bothers you that much - then yes ;)

10:21:49JdGordonwhy not disable sim builds for the naughty servers?
10:21:55LinusNspeaking of that, how's the langv2 patch these days?
10:22:00JdGordonyou want my server for suim builds?
10:22:54LinusNall your servers are belong to us
10:24:41Bagderwe could even re-introduced the nasty cpp hack to fix the warnings
10:25:04Bagderit would of course need to be even hairer to properly detect the gcc versions
10:25:30Bagderhairy hairyer ?

10:26:40Bagderpondlife: even it it would fix the current reds, it would only be a tiny matter of time before they break again
10:27:04Bagderthere's no future in craming everything in on the archos flashes
10:27:12LinusNBagder: amen to that
10:27:21Bagderit is only amiconn who thinks that

10:28:18Bagderso the question is, would archos users still like to flash rockbox? if so, we need to make feature-stripped one for flash
10:28:34Bagderi.e a different build
10:28:35amiconnIt's still possible to flash rockbox
10:28:36pondlifeDidn't tagcache/database already get stripped from rombox?
10:28:57amiconnI see no point in stripping down rockbox in order to make rombox fit
10:29:04JdGordoncan we do a few different builds (weekly) for rombox so people who want different stuff excluded can still be happy?
10:29:13Bagderamiconn: then we stop building it?
10:29:40amiconnEither it fits as-is, or it doesn't
10:29:51amiconnBut I still think that it's possible to make it fit
10:29:54Bagderand it doesn't...
10:30:01LinusNamiconn: ...for now...
10:30:49Bagderand clearly it being "possible" still has left the red builds in there for ages
10:31:13Bagdersince obviously not many care
10:31:27JdGordon... or just stop it making the table red on rombox failure?
10:31:42Bagderthen what would the point be to build it?
10:31:49amiconn[IDC]Dragon does, and he has a stripped-down bootbox, which just needs to be committed

11:01:50LinusN(btw, my patch is now capable of the N*M scheme we discussed yesterday
11:01:51amiconnI think we should either stay with 1-sector caching on all targets, or check cluster sizes to decide how many sectors to cache
11:02:07amiconn(1-sector meaning physical ata sectors here)
11:02:19amiconnThe 1-sector cluster problem is not limited to the Ondio
11:02:44LinusNok, so we dynamically adapt to the physical sector size then?
11:02:48amiconn(and btw, the duplicated dir entries were not the problem on the internal flahs, in case you didn't analyse the image yet)
11:03:12amiconnI mean, they were not related to the single-sector cluster problem

11:09:45amiconnLinusN: So basically it sounds like an idea to check the cluster size and then cache either 1 or 2 sectors. Should automatically work on the G5.5, because clusters cannot be smaller than sectors

11:43:15GodEaterLinusN: I'll test yuor patch if you want ?
11:43:26amiconnJdGordon: I agree with Bagder that you use too many macros which purely hide away stuff for no reason. That also goes for the settings list
11:43:42amiconn...e.g. GS(blah) -> global_settings.blah
11:44:05JdGordonit makes it much easier to read (imo)
11:44:24bluebrother... and much more complicated for people who haven't written it
11:44:27decayedcell_pondlife if you revert to one revision before the playback.c mod and patch rockbox with cop 6 you should find that it works properly
11:44:40amiconnFor me it makes the stuff harder to read
11:44:54bluebrotherin other words: harder to maintain
11:45:03pondlifedecayedcell_: Hmm, I don't have a COP on my H300.
11:45:06decayedcell_I suspected it was playback.c because the cop diff modifies that file, and no other svn commits have
11:45:21JdGordonwell... either its lots of macros.. or in the case of the settings_list, lots of typecasts and {}'s
11:45:21pondlifeIt's only 2 lines extra isn't it?

11:46:36decayedcell_I was right earlier

15:11:07GodEaterout of curiousity - did you change the theme on your GB Llorean? And if so - which did you go for ?
15:11:21LloreanNormally I make my own rather basic theme.
15:11:31LloreanBut I stumbled across one in the gallery I very much like.
15:11:35GodEaterI'm using Cabbie
15:11:43GodEateryeah - it's very good
15:11:43LloreanI made a few changes to it.
15:11:48GodEatershame he didn't use the real RB logo
15:11:52GodEaterbut otherwise it's pretty bool
15:11:54LloreanI actually kinda like that logo.
15:12:05LloreanThough in the menu I moved it to be rotated like the "Gigabeat" words.
15:12:20GodEaterit's not bad I suppose - just unoffical
15:12:22LloreanAnd I added a entry showing where I was in the playlist, as well as numeric battery and volume, to it.
15:12:27Lloreanan entry
15:13:26bluebrotherwoot! Got the utf8 manual working. Now I need to make it in a clean way
15:15:48Lloreanbluebrother: I haven't looked at how the tex is structured, but do you think it'd be reasonably possible for me to hack together a manual build that includes all the various player specific bits, text only (plus the general bits)?
15:16:18LloreanOr would a very lot of stuff end up repeating that way?
15:16:50LloreanI mean, I assume it's structured so you're not rewriting the same stuff for different players, but I don't know how well that'd translate into a giant mishmash.

17:33:33perl|workit is very much required
17:33:43GodEaterthought so - I just wanted to check
17:34:01GodEatercan you do the change yourself, or do you want me to submit a patch ?
17:35:19GodEateralso (having just read the wiki port page rather than the manual) if the latest bootloader is dated the 18th, then it still hasn't made it to - since I'm using one from the 17th
17:35:23webguest20What happens to the hidden disc sector after updating to a RB version where settings are stored in cfg files? Can the sector be removed so that there will be no tracks of RB if I delete RB specific files?

17:40:02GodEateryep understood
17:40:27GodEaterplaying devil's advocate here - wouldn't it make sense to have the zip file include the gbsystem\fwimg folder structure ?
17:40:43GodEateralthough I suppose that could mean a use would overwrite the original firmware before he renamed it
17:40:58perl|workyeah people might end up screwing the whole thing
17:42:50perl|workill ask someone with write access from #gigabeat to modify the manual
17:43:51GodEateranyone know where the dircache get's stored ?
17:45:38perl|worktcd files?
17:46:34GodEaterno that's the database
17:46:46GodEaterdircache seems to be broken here
17:47:20GodEaterif I turn the player on with it enabled - it says rockbox loaded, and the the screen goes blank, the backlight switches off, and then nothing else happens.
17:47:46GodEaterI wonder if that's a result of the patch LinusN did this mornign
17:47:50amiconnThe dircache doesn't get stored on disk
17:48:04amiconn(except on H1x0 when rockbox is in flash)
17:48:42GodEaterso I wonder what's going on there then
17:48:55GodEaterthe first reboot after you enable it it works fine
17:49:02perl|workGodEater always worked on mine
17:49:08GodEateryou get the "scanning disk" message

17:52:18GodEaternot even tried that
17:53:09GodEateramiconn: so explain to me how it works then ? Does dircache scan your disk every time you boot ?
17:53:39GodEaterI wonder why it works once and not subsequently then
17:53:58amiconnAt first boot after enabling, it scans in the foreground. After that it knows the necessary buffer size
17:54:18ppeomWho's know gigabeat..
17:54:22amiconnSubsequent boot use this information in order to reserve the buffer beforehand, and then scan in the background
17:54:46GodEaterso it does store *something* somewhere then
17:54:56GodEateri.e. the size of the req'd buffer
17:54:59amiconnYes. Just the buffer size
17:55:06GodEaterand where does that live ?
17:55:28amiconnThe buffer gets allocated with some extra space to adjust to changed content
17:56:16amiconnIt's part of the global status, i.e. nvram.bin as long as there is no other nv storage

18:51:21XavierGrin order to make the sim run I think you need that

18:51:32Mikachuprobably something like sdl-dev and sdl, possibly "lib" too
18:51:45XavierGryeah what Mikachu said

18:52:34Mikachuyou need sdl to link it too
18:52:35tucozyes, i will have to install x to run it
18:52:39bluebrothersdl-dev should require the sdl package

18:56:04Mikachu as this fact is visible to the user and the user may easily install

18:59:49tucozi haven't read the LaTeX Project Public License though
19:00:33barrywardelllowlight: it ran for me. i think you need a full dev environment with debugger, etc to get the most out of it though

19:51:21tucozI wonder, should i keep the vm without X. I.e. strictly for compiling etc
19:51:21amiconnOtoh, if it were 100 EUR, or even 100 GBP...
19:52:29amiconntucoz: I also thought about building a minimalistic vmware vm for rockbox
19:52:50tucozthis feels really fast. Actually, it feels equal to my other terminals
19:52:50GodEateror 100 CYP
19:53:06amiconnPlain console, just the crosscompilers, samba, plus a windows crosscompiler, so the vm could build windows sims
19:53:29tucozyep. I think i'll go that route, and see how well that works
19:53:52XavierGrwell I don't think that you will gain much more except the size of the image
19:54:21tucozi have little (or none) experience with samba. Do i install samba in the vm, to be able to access windows files?
19:54:41amiconnIirc rasher added autodetection of the cross-win-sdl case, i.e. if the build system finds the win32 sdl includes in the path, it should build windows sims
19:54:48GodEaterinstalling samba in the VM will give your windows install access to the filesystem in the VM
19:55:04bluebrothertucoz, did you manage to get the shared folders working?
19:55:07tucozok. thanks
19:55:10XavierGr"IF" your windows system is set up correctly
19:55:15tucozhehe, i started from scratch
19:55:22GodEatermaking sure the vmware kernel supports smb or cifs will allow connections the other way
19:55:22tucozi do not know yet
19:55:25XavierGrthat means that you will have to make sure that the network services are on (server etc)
19:55:28GodEaterwhich I think is tidier myself
19:55:35GodEaterand certainly requires less faffing about
19:55:43GodEaterand will make your image smaller still
19:55:54GodEatersamba is a sledgehammer to crack a nut in this case I think

20:59:36tucozor do you set export SHELL=/bin/bash?
21:00:09linuxstb_I think just SHELL=/bin/bash near the top should work.
21:00:42linuxstb_If the Makefile is using bash-isms, then we should probably add that in SVN.
21:01:02linuxstb_(or remove the bash-isms)

21:49:21tucozlinuxstb, i am not sure actually
21:49:44linuxstb_The problem is that if we force the Makefile to use /bin/bash, it breaks building on systems with other (but compatible) shells, and no bash.
21:50:32GodEaterwhich systems are those /
21:50:52Bagdermac os x and freebsd etc I guess
21:50:57linuxstb_Does cygwin always install bash?
21:51:09GodEaterthey don't use bash ?
21:51:16linuxstb_Mac OS X has always come with bash, and since about the 2nd version bash is the default shell.
21:51:18tucozthen we can tell them to symlink /bin/bash to their shell
21:51:46GodEaterI was going to say. The last time I used OSX I could have sworn it was a bash shell!
21:51:54tucozis there an alternative to echo then?
21:52:14linuxstb_Maybe /bin/echo, I don't know how common that is though.
21:52:27linuxstb_(rather than the echo built into the shell)

23:33:43TrueJournalsSoul-Slayer: I'll do that right now... give me just a second...
23:33:54Soul-SlayerThanks a lot.
23:34:39preglowwhat does kernel_on_cop do again? put a kernel on the cop as well?
23:34:57preglowdo we need a fully fledged kernel there?
23:34:57Soul-SlayerNot 'as well', but instead, I believe
23:34:58Mikachui think it puts the kernel on the cop
23:35:01Mikachunot a
23:35:01TrueJournalsand it enables audio playback on the cop instead of the main core
23:35:08preglowwhy would we want to put the kernel only on the cop?
23:35:21TrueJournalswell, it's on both
23:35:29TrueJournalsI'm not sure about the specifics :-\
23:35:30Soul-SlayerSo as to free up a processor for other tasks
23:35:32Mikachui think linuxstb has something to do with it
23:36:38 Quit secleinteer (Remote closed the connection)
23:36:42preglowi still think using the second core for the codec only is pretty much what we want
23:36:52preglowbut then again, i'm not involved in it at all
23:37:02TrueJournalsit is... but I think we need a kernel on the second core to do that
23:37:08TrueJournalslike I said, I'm not quite sure...
23:37:13Mikachurunning the lcd and codec on separate cores would seem the smart thing to do
23:37:28Soul-SlayerCurrently, the COP just sits there doing nothing. Pretty much anything running on it has to be a step forward :p
23:37:43TrueJournalsit does that... lcd = core 1, codec = core 2
23:38:32 Quit zefie (Remote closed the connection)
23:38:39preglowTrueJournals: then i don't see the need for a kernel on it
23:38:50Soul-SlayerI'm sure there is reasoning behind it
23:38:55TrueJournalsLike I said... I'm really not quite sure about why
23:39:04Soul-SlayerWould have to speak to someone like barrywardell or linuxstb I guess
23:39:12Zagorthe reasoning could be "it's good in case we want to do something else in the future"
23:39:22Zagor...which would not be a good reason
23:39:35Mikachuswedish logic
23:39:41ZagorKISS logic
23:39:53Zagordon't add code you don't use today
23:40:24TrueJournalsI'm actually not quite even sure that at this point the kernel runs on the cop... it might just be the audio codec. With recent patches if I go to view OS stacks, I just see the codec on the second core... nothing else
23:40:31Mikachui vaguely remember something about irqs only going to the main cpu, or something
23:40:58Bagderthat could possibly be controlled somehow

23:51:42JohnyTheHessgood evening to you all. I would lilke to speak to someone who is familiar with using rockbox on the sandisk sansa series 250? hope I have that right. I have the 8 gig and would like to know if before loading the files if I need to put it in to a specivic mode and if theer is a shortcut to do this? this was not specified in the manual.
23:52:17Soul-SlayerVery interesting... Let me try running Jewels without playing music
23:52:29 Join mattzz [0] (
23:52:30TrueJournalsdoes the music pause when playing music?
23:53:01Soul-SlayerNo, and Jewels appears to run at full speed too, atleast I think so, thats why I am testing it without music
23:53:12TrueJournalsin that case, it seems that my patch works well :-D
23:53:22Soul-SlayerYep, Jewels runs same speed with and without music
23:53:32TrueJournalsone more thing...
23:53:32Zagorwoo, check this out:
23:53:36Soul-SlayerI'll try it with the 'Plasma' plugin, that always lagged like crazy when I ran it with Music, hold on

23:54:29Soul-SlayerPlasma still runs jumpily it seems
23:54:33ZagorMikachu: yeah you'd think so, but this is actually plain http.
23:54:37TrueJournalsWhen you still have music playing, go to the rockbox menu, go to Info > Debug > View OS stacks, see if it says (1) B 4 codec at the bottom (well, at least make sure it says (1) before codec)
23:55:28Soul-SlayerIt flashes between
23:55:28Soul-Slayer(1) *R 4 codec: 93%
23:55:28Soul-Slayer(1) S 4 codec: 93%
23:55:33Soul-SlayerBut definitely has that (1), yes
23:55:45TrueJournalsthen I would say my patch works well :-D
23:56:05Soul-SlayerWell done :p
