00:01:08desowinload without the box sounds good for me
00:01:19SoapI think a kind PM is all it would take. Everybody seems to be the worst about it.
00:01:33Everybodydo I?
00:01:45Kasperlei'm all for swift kicks :P
00:02:01Mikachuyeah, asking nicely first is a good idea :)
00:02:07Soapthe changing of nicks with here/away status, Everybody. Many people consider it rude.
00:02:22Mikachuthe problem is when someone goes away, they won't see that you asked them unless you kick
00:02:38Mikachu(some clients show /msg inside the channel window as well)
00:03:11EverybodySoap I'm not away :p
00:03:32Everybodyhow is that considered rude :s
00:03:47bospaadjeEverybody, it clogs up the channel with nick change messages
00:03:57KasperleEverybody: it is unnecessary spam in an already crowded channel
00:04:25peturand it seems to be your main contribution to this channel
00:04:36KasperleEverybody: you can just set yourself /away with a meaningful message and everybody who needs to know whether you're there or not can then query that with /whois Everybody
00:04:39Mikachuof course, if it really annoys you you can do /ignore #rockbox NICK
00:05:13*petur is afraid to ignore everybody :p
00:05:23Everybodywell I'd rather I didn't get highlights while I'm away to be honest
00:05:34Mikachui mean literally nick, in irssi it ignores nick changes
00:05:34Everybodyand seriously what difference does it make

00:05:58Soapif it doesn't make a difference, why argue with the request?
00:06:43bospaadjeeverybody, if you don't want highlights, dont take a dictionary word as nick
00:06:52bospaadjeespecially not a widely used one
00:06:55SoapIt's generally considered bad nettiquite, and yeah, bospaadje beat me to point #2
00:08:22markunMithanks for the tip!
00:08:40Mikachuno prob
00:08:58Mikachube aware that you'll sometimes talk to people who aren't here :)
00:09:33Mikachuerr, my head skipped a logical step there
00:09:42Mikachui was going to say you can do /ignore #rockbox joins quits too

00:56:25toffeI am just playing with the gigabeat
00:56:37linuxstbYes, the F40 I was looking at went for around $130 USD, which is very cheap with the current GBP->USD exchange rate.
00:56:58amiconnOtoh, imho development wise the only interesting part was figuring out how things work, and that's already done (mostly)
00:57:10toffedid you see the other one, a f20
00:57:36amiconnThe thing is simply overpowered for a dap, and in fact it surprises me that runtime is as good as it is
00:57:43linuxstbYes, I'm keeping an eye on ebay, and if a bargain comes I may buy one.
00:58:03linuxstbYes, the runtime is impressive. Makes optimisation seem pointless...
00:58:37toffethis one :
00:58:37amiconnI've watched two F40s, one went for USD132, the other for USB122

01:01:17toffethe problem is that I don't know if the boot is complete
01:01:46toffemy s30 doesn't have a lcd so I don't know, and I cannot find an entry to send command
01:01:57linuxstbMaybe that's all the bootloader does, and then control is passed to the kernel, which doesn't log?

02:04:08linuxstbNo, but (x*3)/2 should be better.
02:04:16linuxstbDid I do (3/2) ?
02:04:32midkayno, i don't think so.. just a personal question for the about-to-be-commited clock update..
02:04:46linuxstbSorry, I thought you were talking about changes I made to chopper.
02:04:50Mikachu(3/2) gives 1, so it would be a no-op
02:04:55midkaylinuxstb: a related question :)
02:05:13Mikachuand *1.5 isn't good since it's a float
02:05:30linuxstbI'm not 100% sure if x*1.5 and (x*3)/2 are equivalent though

02:09:55*linuxstb just did the same up to INT_MAX, and they matched up to the point where the integer version overflowed.
02:10:25Mikachuthe (int) isn't needed if you print (i*3)/2-i*1.5 instead
02:10:46Mikachuprobably just that gcc doesn't know printf wants an int

05:57:50VulcanI'm thinking about buying an x5
05:57:53VulcanI know its old
05:57:58Vulcanbut I want somethign different
05:58:05VulcanI have a zune now
05:58:17Vulcanand I'm tired of being locked in if you know what i mean
05:58:33Vulcananyway, my main question was how well is rockbox supported on the x5?
05:59:12LloreanWell, we don't support dual boot on that target (there's an unofficial patch though) and the USB-on the go, and WMA playback aren't supported.
05:59:31Vulcannone of those are really concerns
05:59:59LloreanOther than that it's a fairly solid target.
06:00:05Vulcanhmm, what about the remote?
06:00:10 Quit YouCeyE (Remote closed the connection)
06:00:11LloreanI'm curious what specifically about the X5 has attracted your attention.
06:00:23Vulcanwell, it has quite the underground following

06:01:36VulcanI hate the design though
06:01:49Vulcanit kinda takes the wrost elements of several players and puts them together haha
06:02:17Mouser_XVulcan: Have you heard of the Gigabeat F (or X)? I've got one running Rockbox, and I love it.
06:02:40VulcanMouser_X, I've always kinda stayed away fro mthe gigabeats
06:02:46Vulcanwhich one should I look at?
06:03:05Mouser_XI've got the F40 (40 GB drive).
06:03:21Mouser_XI've heard the X is nicer, but much more expensive, and harder to get.
06:03:41Mouser_XAlso, any particular reason you avoid the Gigabeat?
06:04:34Vulcaneh, I've just just been told that they wern't that great
06:04:51VulcanI wish the zune was more hackable at this point
06:04:56Vulcanthe hardware itself is great
06:05:03Vulcantoshiba hardware I belive
06:05:20Mouser_XCurrently, the Gigabeat is the most powerful unit supported by Rockbox.
06:05:31Mouser_XI can't think of any complaints of the hardware.
06:05:38Mouser_XI could be wrong, of course.
06:07:05Mouser_XThe software, people have complained about. But if you're running Rockbox, I don't see how that'd be an issue.
06:07:07Vulcando you know of the speicifc differences between the f and x?
06:07:13Vulcanyes good point
06:07:42Mouser_XThe X is smaller, sleeker, looks nicer, and has a larger screen (same resolution as the F, but larger in measurment).
06:07:48LloreanThe X has a larger screen (by .2 inches) and less battery life.
06:08:05Vulcansounds like F is the way to go then
06:08:15LloreanAt least, I hear it has less battery life.
06:08:16Vulcanwhats the battery life with rockbox like?
06:08:20Mouser_XI could be wrong about the size, but I thought it was smaller. You can check the wiki.
06:08:21LloreanBut the gigabeat has no FM radio, and no recording features.
06:08:25Mouser_XBattery life is great.
06:08:29Mouser_XI get 15+ hours.
06:08:34Mouser_XOn one charge.
06:08:35Vulcanthats pretty solid

06:08:59Mouser_XSome people have gotten 20 hours on one charge.
06:09:16Vulcanimpressive for a hdd basedp layer
06:09:29VulcanI take it that rockbox is pretty well developed on it then?
06:09:39LloreanIt's at about the same level as the X5
06:09:45Mouser_XIt doesn't happen much, but it is known to happen.
06:09:46LloreanThe X5L can in theory get ~25 hours of battery life.
06:09:59LloreanAnd an H120 with a replaced battery can get 30ish
06:10:22Mouser_XYou can replace the battery in the Gigabeat.
06:10:30Vulcanyeah.. H120 is going abit too far back in history for me haha
06:10:34Mouser_XSomeone posted a link for it in #gigabeat.
06:10:35LloreanMouser_X: But do they make higher capacity batteries?
06:10:47LloreanVulcan: Is age the only reason you're against it?
06:10:51Mouser_XI heard that you get an hour or 2 extra.
06:10:55LloreanIt's like, 3 or 4 years ago. Hardly 'history'
06:11:00VulcanLlorean, its abit bulky to iirc
06:11:04Vulcanbut maybe I'm mistaken
06:11:06Mouser_XSo, not a major increase, but noticeable, depending.
06:11:06LloreanMouser_X: Yeah, but I'm referring to upgrading from 1300mah to 2200mah.
06:11:22LloreanVulcan: It's larger than an iPod, but it's a far sight smaller than the Archos.
06:11:57Mouser_XNo, I don't think the capacity is that much higher.
06:12:19Mouser_XI don't know what the capacity of the original battery is, though.
06:12:57Vulcanthe toshibas can be had very very cheap
06:13:25Mouser_XSo I've heard.
06:13:52LloreanThe H120 is a little bit thicker than the Gigabeat, really.
06:13:59LloreanBut width and height wise it's about the same.
06:14:07LloreanBut it really depends on why you're buying one.
06:14:12VulcanI'm having trouble even finding a 120 Llorean
06:14:16Vulcantheres one on ebay
06:14:18LloreanIf you don't care about recording or fm radio, I'd suggest the Gigabeat over it anyway
06:14:20Vulcanwell, more than one
06:14:31VulcanI don't plan on using recording or radio
06:14:35Vulcanthe remote is nice though
06:15:02Mouser_XVulcan: The F40 comes with a remote.
06:15:04LloreanThe gigabeat has a remote, though not one with a screen.
06:15:10Mouser_XThat's true.
06:15:36Mouser_XI use the remote *far* more than I do the actual player...
06:16:03Mouser_XI just don't look at the screen hardly ever.
06:16:12Vulcanyeah I don't really need the screen
06:16:17Vulcan90% of the time I'm using shuffle
06:16:37Mouser_XI've used shuffle Maybe 0.1% of the time...

06:21:03Vulcanmaybe slightly over

06:41:37Mouser_XIf this means anything to you, Rockboy (GB/C emulator in Rockbox) runs very near full speed on the Gigabeat.
06:41:59Vulcanthats cool
06:42:08Mouser_XIn fact, with the FPS turned on, I've seen it go to 100 a few times (it usually sits around 60-70).
06:42:11VulcanI used rockbox on an ipod nano for a long time

06:44:24Mouser_XSo, you shouldn't have any speed issues to worry about, regardless of the audio codec in question.
06:44:25Mouser_XNSF, SPC, and perhaps SID take a lot of CPU to have non-skippy playback. Though, I do believe they're all optimized enough that they play fullspeed on most (all?) targets.
06:44:58Mouser_XI've only seen the iPod. I've held a 5G once or twice...
06:45:17Mouser_XI think I've seen the nano, but it might have been a shuffle...

07:35:20LloreanThe bootsplash isn't included in the build.
07:35:25LloreanVulc4n: Why on earth did you tell him to do that?
07:35:55Vulc4nits not?
07:36:09Vulc4nwhy does it change when I use a unofficial build?
07:36:12Vulc4nor did rather
07:36:27LloreanVulc4n: Are you on Gigabeat?
07:36:34Vulc4nI had an ipod
07:36:46LloreanIt works completely differently there.
07:36:51Vulc4nmy mistake
07:37:24LloreanThe gigabeat's bootloader loads a file from disk.
07:37:29LloreanIt's included in the bootloader zip, not the build.
07:38:42esp8hey ive got a gen 5 with video its a 30 gig you think i can put linux on it :)
07:38:52illriginalbootloader? ok
07:38:56LloreanThis is #Rockbox.
07:39:02Lloreanesp8: I think you're in the wrong channel
07:39:31esp8no... i wanted to throw a new Os on my ipod... with a loader
07:39:51Vulc4nesp8, rockbox != linux
07:39:53esp8i seen rockbox online
07:40:42LloreanRockbox is not linux though, it's a completely different thing
07:40:49esp8wanted to make sure my ipods version was compatible befor loading my mame rom collection back on to my pc :P
07:41:00esp8oh... but still its a nice looking Os for my ipod
07:41:09esp8alot more atractive then mac's crap :)
07:41:28Lloreanesp8: The list of compatible devices is on the very front page of the site.
07:41:49esp8ive been there read it all... not sure still if its compatible so i connected to this server
07:42:04esp8even read the pdf about my ipod you have but still not sure :P
07:42:45Vulc4nas long as its not one of the 5.5g ipods it will be fine

07:46:06Vulc4nwhats the difference hardware wise that prevents the 80gig from working?
07:46:23Vulc4nI had always assumed thet it was identical to the 30gig minus the drive/case
07:47:42LloreanThere's differences in the way the drive itself works, though I don't know them myself

08:02:32impsyWell I was changing themes on my ipod rockbox firmware and it froze so i reset it, now rockbox has a theme where the text is white and the bg is white and i need exact instructions or something to browse to the theme menu and change it :(
08:04:05Vulc4nLlorean might no better, but I think I would just delete the .rockbox folder and isntall the latest build
08:04:45midgeyresetting the settings is probably easier
08:04:50Lloreanimpsy: Just turn on the Hold switch after seeing the bootloader come up, to reset the settings
08:05:04Vulc4nugh its been too long since I had my nane
08:05:15impsyah ok ill try that now hold on :)
08:07:36impsythank you so much Llorean :)
08:08:46impsyNow i can get back to playing doom :P
08:09:36JdGordonmidkay: yes, but iirc it wont compile on target...
08:09:49midkayJdGordon: ?
08:10:07midkaymy char question?
08:10:42impsyLlorean: would you by any chance know how to set up the doom that comes with rockbox so that the scroll wheel turns my guy around when i use it? because i would use the left and right buttons to strafe side to side then
08:10:52amiconnJdGordon: Why shouldn't it?
08:10:54midkayJdGordon: gave up on that anyways :)
08:11:21JdGordondidnt we not have memcpy or something which stopped that from working?
08:11:25Lloreanimpsy: I believe that requires a patch
08:11:30*JdGordon is sure he remembers that failing ages ago :p
08:11:34amiconnOf course we have memcpy
08:11:44JdGordonwe didnt have _something_...
08:11:50impsyLlorean: Is that available to download anywhere
08:12:05Lloreanimpsy: You have to be able to compile, and I don't know for certain if there's a patch for that.
08:12:14JdGordonaparently it does work...
08:12:18amiconnchar[] = "blah" and char[20] = "blah" is standard C and of course works in rockbox
08:12:37impsyLlorean: aha exactly what I need
08:13:22JdGordoni dunno... /me obviously going crazy
08:13:50midkayJdGordon: not that crazy, i tried something similar and got a memcpy error.. i removed the char and references to it, and it was fixed..
08:13:57midkaynot worth screwing with, i'm done with that.
08:14:09pearldiverthis is just strange
08:14:10JdGordonyeah.. that... I knew I wasnt crazy :D
08:14:37esp8hey guys i just finished installing rockbox on my ipod but it said when i rebooted it that it cant find the rockbox.ipod on my ipod... so it didn't load :(
08:14:54JdGordonpearldiver: WTF?
08:14:56Lloreanesp8: You didn't follow the instructions in 2.2.2 exactly
08:15:03pearldiverJdGordon thats what i thought ha

08:15:13BHSPitMonkeyimpsy, pretty hard
08:15:13Lloreanimpsy: You have to be able to compile.
08:15:21impsyugh :/

08:15:29impsyill never beat doom on my ipod then :P
08:15:40BHSPitMonkeyimpsy, what's wrong with iDoom
08:15:54impsyits hard because i cant have the left and right to strae
08:16:07impsyi need them to turn left and right
08:16:11BHSPitMonkeyjust change the setting
08:16:17impsyso how am i supposto dodge fireballs :[
08:16:28BHSPitMonkeyso that the scroll wheel is turn, and the << and >> buttons strafe
08:16:29pearldiverJdGordon like whats next, gigabeat as a videocard?
08:16:37Lloreanimpsy: Back up while turning.
08:16:37BHSPitMonkeyor vice versa
08:16:49impsyThe scroll wheel is a patch BHSPitMonke

08:17:05BHSPitMonkeyimpsy, I've been talking about iDoom, not rockdoom
08:17:13impsyi see
08:17:39impsyI recommend you guys to download Zdaemon for the PC and play Doom online, funnest ever

09:07:11LloreanI really wish the Linux port for my old HP PDA had ever gotten finished
09:07:35GodEaterwhich one did you have ?

09:08:17LloreanHP Jornada 565
09:08:59GodEaterthe 4150 port seems to be coming along - but it seems to take a lot longer than a rockbox port does usually. I hope that's not an omen for the Gigabeat S / Zune
09:09:51LloreanThe 565 is a rather ancient PDA but it actually had a really nice looking screen and form factor, and worked really well for me for several years.

09:11:12GodEaterthe 4150 is about perfect for me :)
09:11:34midkayamiconn: cool, is that something you'll work on soon?
09:11:49amiconnThe fb size will then simply be LCD_FBWIDTH*LCD_FBHEIGHT*sizeof(fb_data)

09:12:41amiconnOf course you can make your copy an fb_data array, then it becomes fb_data fb_copy[LCD_FBWIDTH*LCD_FBHEIGHT];

09:16:20webguest42hello i was wondering if it would be posible to get a menotrome on rockbox like on here.
09:17:00webguest42thankyou so much.
09:17:39webguest42is there any other guitar plugin like that?
09:19:05amiconnmidkay: fb_data is the datatype of the framebuffer array. unsigned char for mono & greyscale targets, unsigned short for 16-bit colour targets
09:20:59midkayamiconn: got it..
09:21:34webguest42Llorean would a guitar tuner be possible on the sansa e200
09:23:09crwla guitar tuner in rockbox would be seriously cool
09:23:11Lloreanwebguest42: Dunno, I don't know what you'd need for one.
09:25:09webguest42to tune your guitar
09:25:26GodEaterdoes the sansa have a line-in / mic ?
09:25:37webguest42yer it has a mic
09:25:51midkayamiconn: this plugin/framebuffer simplification - expecting it to be committed soon?
09:25:51webguest42thats why i thought it could work
09:26:10GodEaterprobably could then - you'd just need to write a plugin

09:31:53safetydana guitar tuner plugin has been suggested many times
09:32:01safetydanno one's actually stepped up and written anything though
09:33:18*petur would like one, too but misses the time to look into it
09:34:15crwlthere's quite a lot of open-source tuner software around, I use Lingot myself, too bad it's written in C++
09:35:04crwlit's the best I've found so far, some tools didn't automatically figure out what string one's trying to tune, for example...
09:36:03peturit should at least be able to do that and support both bass and normal guitar
09:37:17LinusNproblem is that many guitar tuner softwares are designed to run on a fast pentium
09:37:24LinusNwith floating point
09:37:46LinusNthere are a few ones that look quite portable though
09:38:03*B4gder got a mail from a father of a 12-year-old who installed Rockbox on his Sansa and, well can't get stuff to work anymore
09:38:23LinusNbut it's like with any other idea, someone has to actually work on it

10:12:25JdGordoncan you paste the value of the "scroll delay" setting please?
10:13:06bluebrotherscroll delay: 100
10:13:25bluebrother# .cfg file created by rockbox 061106-2222
10:13:37JdGordonok ta
10:13:47bluebrotheron a h120
10:13:50JdGordon:( thats the default value, so not as helpful as I hoped :(
10:14:49JdGordonhaha bloody helll. I made a new file with a really long name to test the scroll delay. without trying I made it exactly long enough for the h300 :p
10:15:15midkayto fit the LCD width?
10:16:13JdGordonso, 1 char longer or it didnt need to scroll
10:16:27midkayi always knew the force was strong with you.
10:16:28LinusNJdGordon: the scroll_delay setting is multiplied by HZ/10
10:17:21LinusNremove that and it should work just fine
10:18:02JdGordonnot fix the actual problem? I think the its just I have 10 where 100 should be and vice verca
10:18:34LinusNvoid lcd_scroll_delay(int ms)
10:18:52LinusNthe setting should thus be in milliseconds
10:19:09JdGordon* HZ/10 is just to keep the int smaller for the old config block then?
10:19:49JdGordonAH, ok, I can save a few bytes then by fixing this setting :)

10:23:57 Nick pseudo_ is now known as printfXh4 (
10:24:02bluebrotherwxp doesn't comply to the fat specs?
10:24:45amiconnI guess it's some more davanced spec that isn't public
10:25:05bluebrotherah. Just was quite surprised ...
10:25:24JdGordonor they didnt bother supporting it anymore?
10:25:46amiconnI think the actual numerictail algorithm isn't that much important, the main point is imho the usage of ~ in the shortname, which is quite uncommon in a normal filename
10:26:02bluebrotherMicrosoft? They are downwards compatible to almost everything. Including hell :)
10:26:35amiconnOtherwise the generated shortname might easily collide with a later longname which is mapped 1:1 observed with our driver
10:27:46JdGordonHZ is 100 isnt it?
10:28:14peturamiconn: I have adapted the randomize code, must just test a bit more
10:28:41peturalso, I randomize the shortname if required as per spec
10:29:35amiconnYes, and we should also use the ~
10:29:51peturyes, new code does that
10:30:12peturand randomize tries to find the ~ to inc the number

11:46:12LinusNi'm no arm ninja, though
11:46:32amiconnAlways using long calls means larger binary, but for the bootloaders this might be already compensated for by the dropped code
11:46:40LinusNi see

14:33:47*Mikachu imagines heavily distorted sounds
14:34:36LloreanAnd apparently the sw tone controls take less processing power than achieving the same thing with the SW EQ.
14:35:09jhMikeSLlorean: well, I know the x5 fits that
14:36:05jhMikeSWould be kind of an odd thing to include on the H120 by default though
14:36:14LloreanBut I do imagine people enabling them on targets we already have adequate ones (if they aren't just enabled as SW Bass and SW Treble on them anyway) and setting Bass, SWBass, and Low shelf all quite hight.

15:02:11preglowamiconn: perhaps not, i just can't imagine why i'd not want it

15:04:56LloreanCan't we make it start up on the FM Screen or the Recording screen, with Root menu? In either of those cases, trying to resume playback on startup doesn't seem necessary or ideal.
15:06:42preglowwell, why'd you want alarm to wake you up there?
15:06:51preglowthat is, i can see why you'd want it to wake up in fm mode
15:07:06LloreanWell, we don't have a wake-up-and-record yet, do we?
15:07:08peturtimed recordings? see forum ;)
15:07:20Lloreanpetur: Timed recordings require leaving the unit on, though.
15:07:25preglowwould be nice, but anyway, the point is i don't see why it should wake up and just sit there
15:07:45LloreanI thought there was an option to start recording immediately open entering the recording screen?
15:07:51LloreanI don't use the feature much, so I'm probably wrong...
15:08:14Llorean'the feature' being recording in general
15:09:09jhMikeSpreglow: not alot has been done on the cpu side
15:09:35peturwhy not make it generic? be able select what screen to start in (wps/fm/rec) and have it start whatever it should start there
15:09:48preglowpetur: that would be perfect
15:09:55LloreanWell starting in "WPS" is resuming playback, isn't it?
15:10:07preglowpetur: again, the only thing i don't see the meaning of is alarm just resulting in the unit twiddling its thumbs
15:10:24preglowso setting the alarm might just as well imply that the default action is to be taken upon wakeup
15:10:24LloreanYeah, that should be avoided.
15:10:37peturthat's why I said wps/fm/rec ;)
15:10:52LloreanIf you've set a 'menu' as your startup screen, it should go to WPS on alarm then.

19:32:37ArathisMikachu: I was thinking about automount. Users that mount manually would know where their player is mounted ;)
19:33:29Mikachuat school they mount usb devices in /usb0..8
19:33:57MikachuArathis: everyone should know where it's mounted, how else are they copying music to it?

19:40:28ArathisI think I'll execute dan_a's command and ask for the mountpoint so there can be a list of possible mountpoints if possible and the user still can add his own one
19:40:57ArrowStomperdan_a: ok, just one thing, there isn't a .mi4 file in the 16mb partition right now, only a VERSION.TXT
19:41:05ArathisAsking for the player would be necessary too of course
19:42:22dan_aArrowStomper: That's normal if you haven't copied the mi4 there yet. Every time you boot in recovery mode it does that. Don't delete anything of the recovery partition. Don't format the recovery partition. Copy the mi4 to it, and then safely disconnect your Sansa

20:01:50Febsesp8: you can load music onto your ipod just by dragging and dropping it. Rockbox will be able to read it; the original firmware will not.
20:01:56illriginalThe latest bootloader (FWIMG01.DAT) is dated 18 January 2007. It can be downloaded as the file at the bottom of this page if it is not yet at, or
20:01:56illriginalThe bootloader should go into the /gbsystem/fwimg.
20:01:56illriginalbootsplash.raw should go in the root directory of the Gigabeat. This file is a raw file generated with the bmp2rb command. The source is a 240x320x16 bitmap file. To create a raw file, if you would like to replace this one, use the command:

20:34:51Lloreanlinuxstb: Would it be possible to use the Latex->HTML to just create an index of the installation chapters of each manual, by target?
20:34:54illriginalsomethin like that linux, then have all the players/models, click the players, and have all the installation files, even the "extras" including the fonts

20:36:32LloreanFebs: Actually, yeah, I was thinking of the existing HTML manuals while I said it, but stupidly didn't think "We could just link to the ones already there"

20:38:45linuxstbWhat's the point in people moaning there? They should come and modify the wiki themselves...
20:38:47Lloreanillriginal: Other than the installation files, what _other_ info do you keep talking about?
20:38:55illriginali dunno linux?
20:39:50illriginalllorean, think of a book, there's chapters, sections, paragraphs, sentences, words, and letters...
20:39:54FebsEverything that needs to be downloaded to install Rockbox is referenced in the installation chapter of the manual.
20:39:56illriginalbreak it down.
20:40:02Lloreanillriginal: Break what down?
20:40:15linuxstbFebs: Then maybe all we need is some more direct links to those chapters.
20:40:18LloreanTelling me to think of it like a book is useless, if I don't know what info I'm supposed to be thinking about.
20:40:23illriginalthe webpage...
20:40:27Febslinuxstb, agreed.
20:40:47Lloreanillriginal: What part of the webpage?
20:41:07FebsI'd also like to move the note about the fonts package to its own subsection of the installation instructions and provide a direct link rather than saying "it can be downloaded from the extras page."
20:41:12FebsBut otherwise, I thnk that everything is there.
20:41:24linuxstbMaybe under Documentation, have "Installation" link to a page of player images, which in turn link to the manual pages. But it would be nice to work on the html manuals to incorporate them into the website properly.
20:41:42Febsillriginal: I am referring to this chapter of the manual:
20:41:48Lloreanillriginal: You keep making vague statements about other information. What other information that is specific to the gigabeat do you see that is not A) The build, B) the manual, and C) the install instructions?
20:42:02FebsPerhaps you could read through that page and identify for us any other information that you think should be identified, that is not already identified there.
20:42:25illriginalthe main page, should have a link reading "installation" you click that, then there's a page with all the players/models, you click your player, then you have a page with all the files that are needed to install, lettin people know there's a new build, and old build, tell them the difference in the two so they have a choice which to click, on that same page there should be fonts, and the wps gallery for that specfic player/mode
20:42:49esp8Can i just format my ipod once i installed the rockbox?
20:42:55Lloreanillriginal: There is no fonts specific to a model. There's just one font zip for all of them.
20:43:08Lloreanillriginal: And the WPS galleries aren't model-specific either. You can use any WPS for your screen size or smaller.
20:43:10illriginalok im sorry, leave the fonts on the main page? i dunno.
20:43:18dan_aI think that on, the links to the downloads ought to be above the build table - from a dev's point of view it's nice to see the build table first, but there are more users than devs
20:43:19linuxstbesp8: You can do whatever you want...
20:43:46illriginali agree with that dan_a
20:43:48Lloreanillriginal: That's why I asked you for specific pages you think are Gigabeat only, outside of the three categories I listed.
20:44:01illriginalnaw i mean in general.
20:44:05n1sLlorean: That page can link to the fonts anyway to have links to everything (for the specific player) in one place

20:45:08illriginalLlorean some people are dumb enough to some how download the wrong player's installation files.. not that i have, but it has been done before from the last time i read the forums on gigabeat, it's just all about the ease of goin through a webpage
20:45:20n1sLlorean: yes I know but as a nice way to let them have all the stuff in one place, or just link from the player-picture links directly to the install instructions in the manual...
20:45:48esp8okay but the rockbox should still boot in it's own Os.. i just have to do a quick back up of those files in there
20:45:53Lloreann1s: A link to the install instructions would be fine.
20:45:54dan_aThe "extras" page would probably look better without the TOC there
20:46:16illriginaln1s, im sure it would even kill off a page saving more space for your website to expand,
20:46:24Lloreanillriginal: How is a webpage easier than the manual? Or the existing webpage?
20:46:42Lloreanillriginal: All you do is click on the picture of your player, and you download it...
20:46:50LloreanYou even suggested using pictures of the player for your other method.
20:46:56illriginalkeepin everything tidy and organize is the only thing that makes things easier for the consumer and the dev/web master
20:47:21illriginali dont need pictures, i can clearly read, "gigabeat f series"
20:47:43Lloreanillriginal: So then how is the current build page too confusing, other than that the table's at the bottom of it?
20:48:04LloreanYou want the newest version of Rockbox, so you click "Current Build" then you click the one for your player.
20:48:19illriginalno no listen man... the specific pages are not confusing by themselves.. it's when you have all the specific information about a specific player that is all scattered
20:48:36Lloreanillriginal: What information, other than the three categories I gave you, is only about the GIgabeat?
20:48:40LloreanThat's what I'm trying to ask.
20:48:45Febsillriginal: second request. Please read the installation instructions section of the manual that I linked you to above and let me know what you feel is missing.
20:48:47LloreanWhat is all this "specific" information you keep referencing?
20:48:51illriginalif they were NOT scattered, and they were all linked by one page... then it would be considered organized
20:48:57ArathisDo all PP players have a unique *.mi4? And have the other players similar files you can identify them with? ... a list would be nice :) ...
20:48:58LloreanWHAT is scattered?
20:49:09*Febs bangs his head against a brick wall.

20:49:21GodEater_Arathis: pretty much all of them except the iPod
20:49:35dan_aArathis: A lot of them are called PP5022.mi4
20:49:40LloreanAll known PP players use MI4s outside the iPods, I believe. Well, known to us.
20:50:09dan_aThe Sansa has either version.sdk or VERSION.TXT (or both) in the root

23:00:32bluebrotherhmm. If I have a shebang pointing to bash, and run the script with dash (i.e. dash <script>) it will be interpreted by dash or not?
23:00:45bluebrotherhehe. Nice quit message.
23:00:53Mikachubluebrother: by dash
23:01:02Mikachuthe shell sees the #-line as a comment
23:01:09Mikachuthat's why it has a # in the first place

23:02:14bluebrothercool linux joke?
23:02:19Mikachuwhat joke?
23:02:26bluebrotherB123: then do it. The manual strongly advises you to do so
23:02:34bluebrotheras otherwise a lot of themes will look broken
23:02:35B123Where do i put it once i download it.
23:02:45bluebrotherread the manual, it's stated there
23:02:51Vulc4nanyone using the mediamonkey alpha?
23:03:00XavierGrwell I didn't get the greping command on preglow and beer... (I don't know all these switches)

23:10:19busa_bladewhen i use the plugins... it says incompatible version
23:10:32bluebrotherreinstall with make install
23:11:21B123I still can't figure this out. I installed the font pack and everything but the background image will stiill not show up and everything is in plain text.
23:11:55bluebrotherRockbox _is_ text. No fancy icons (some small ones, not really fancy only)
23:12:22busa_bladeforgot about that part... sorry

23:13:17B123I have his newest Jbuild.
23:13:42B123When i get the theme file, where do i unzip it to?
23:13:54Shaidyour rockbox dir
23:14:15B123just in the .rockbox.
23:14:19bluebrotherdepends on the theme file.

23:17:30B123to where you said

23:28:47bluebrotherI don't know of any message that simply says "cannot load". So can you be a bit more precise?

23:35:45busa_bladeis there are reason there isn't a jpeg library? (just wondering)
23:36:05Bagderbun-bun: because there is a jpeg plugin
23:36:14Bagderhm, that was to busa_blade
23:37:11busa_bladewould there be room to create a general purpose jpeg plugin so that the image viewer could become general purpose?
23:37:16busa_bladeor would that be too much?
23:37:47Bagderthe existing plugin could indeed be extended to view more formats, imho
23:37:59bluebrothermake format plugins to the jpeg plugins ;-)
23:39:10bluebrotherwould be nice to preview bmp files, indeed.
23:39:40busa_bladejust wondering because I was thinking about adding it in... but wanted to get some feedback first... I submitted a patch about it the week b4 last
23:39:50Kasperlebluebrother: the patch didn't work, but i merged the changes by hand and the resulting script seems to work fine
23:39:51*petur has deja-vu on discussing multi-format viewer
23:40:05Kasperlebluebrother: do you still need the "r" prefix, though?
23:40:29Kasperlebluebrother: e.g. '
23:40:47Kasperle'then SVNVER=r`svnversion $1`;', 'if [ "$SVNVER" = "rexported" ]; ', ...
23:41:51bluebrotherok, if the quotes don't work we can simply use the r-trick you posted.
23:42:15bluebrotherI hoped this would work too. At least I learned something new ;-)
23:42:16Kasperlebluebrother: nono, the quotes work, your patch just didn't apply cleanly
23:42:50Kasperlebluebrother: your new version is fine. i was just wondering why you still have some "r-tricks" left in that script
23:43:19bluebrotherjust historically −− didn't wanted to change too much
23:43:36bluebrotherbut while I'm at it I can change that too.
23:44:37Kasperlemaybe people would like to keep the "r" in the version number though, so you could prepend it in the end ;)

23:52:57Kasperlebluebrother: so you could still just prefix the "r" in the VERSION=... line. it's a cosmetic change, but still a bit "cleaner" ;)
23:54:04linuxstbignore that^
23:54:37linuxstbpreglow: AFAIK, the ipl kernel is still in cvs at sf. And you're right - there's been almost no kernel development for months.
