02:10:45Zagorweb server is now up again. (phew)
02:12:25Nico_Ponly 48 B gain on the gigabeat :(

02:39:33Bawitdabaah here it is
02:39:49Bawitdabafaq said u guys were @ which doesnt exist
02:39:57 Part lavid
02:42:08Bawitdabai dont have a mp3 player but i am going to buy one, was wondering rockbox is a complete firmware replacement and it acts as a mass storage device so u dont have to use mtp/3rd party stuff?
02:42:24Bawitdabanot sure what im gonna get yet either and ipod or zen vision
02:42:55 Quit My_Sic (Read error: 131 (Connection reset by peer))
02:45:14webguest33Bawitdaba: Rockbox completely replaces the original firmware
02:45:36Bawitdabaawsome, i assume is much better or equel to it?
02:45:45Bawitdabaive only seen some limited screens
02:45:47dan333hey does anyone know how well rockbox works on the Toshiba: Gigabeat
02:47:48voltagexBawitdaba: afaik there's no Zen port, correct me if I'm wrong
02:47:55webguest33dan333: I believe its supposed to work quite well
02:47:59webguest33no recording yet though
02:48:10voltagexBawitdaba: currently, best players IMO are the Gigabeat and the iRivers
02:48:11Bawitdabayeah i know i am hoping that in the future one will be made
02:48:39dan333what is the hard drive size do u know
02:49:05Bawitdabai wanted something at 80gb or more but that is pretty hard to find, have to settle for 60gb
02:49:48webguest33Entasis: thanks, but I don't understand what the L does either
02:50:17 Join wrobbie [0] (
02:52:11Entasiswebguest33: L is just a symbol, MAD_F(foo) => ((mad_fixed_t) (fooL))
02:52:17webguest33yeah just figured it out
02:52:24webguest33specifies that its a long type
02:52:30Bawitdabaoh and voltagex the new gigabeat s's (if u can call them new lol) aren't supported for rockbox either right
02:52:48Bawitdabacuz i was looking at one of toshibas 60gb ones i think it was a gigabeat
02:53:02webguest33yes, only F and X are supported

02:54:54Bawitdabathink it was a piano whatever that is, ran media center portable edition it says gigabeat on the pic of it tho looks pretty sharp supposedly the predicesor to zune
02:55:29 Join Shaid [0] (
02:55:37SoapNo recording on the gigabeat "yet", webguest33, because the gigabeat doesn't have the hardware to record.
02:56:31 Quit ender` (" Programming is like sex becuse: 6. If you spend more time doing it than watching TV, people think you’re some kind of freak.)
02:56:40Juice-voltagex: what about the iAudio X5's .. they look nice and have great storage
02:56:47Nico_PSoap: are you sure it isn't possible to record via a custom dock ?
02:57:14SoapBawitdaba: despite what webguest33 says, Rockbox does not "completely replace the original firmware" on most devices. For example, the iPod of which you asked, Rockbox uses the Apple firmware for USB disk mode, and dual boot works great on almost all targets.
02:57:19 Quit JdGordon (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
02:57:54SoapNico_P: I can't speak as to such a dock, but the Gigabeat F/X itself has no recording hardware.
02:57:59Bawitdababut when u load it or running it, it never uses old firmware
02:58:17dan333anyone know what hard drive the ipod uses
02:59:20SoapBawitdaba: correct, rockbox does not reuse any of the original firmware when running, but the original firmware is still there if you choose to use it.
02:59:40Bawitdabascreenshots of rockbox look really cool, was really looking to get something that i can just dump my mp3s on i have no drm junk i just wanna copy paste/sync i dont need itunes and stuff
02:59:44SoapI guess I see what webguest33 was saying, sorry for the semantic fight.
03:00:18Bawitdabaplus its also a cool backup, never know when ur hd might die
03:00:27Soapyea, being able to browse your music by filename / path instead of the Apple database was a huge selling point for me.

03:01:39dan333what does
03:02:10Soapit is a shell script to download and build your cross-compilers.
03:02:27dan333what app do i use to open it
03:02:32Bawitdabado u know if anyone is expirementing with zen vision m and rockbox or if its possible at all, i didnt seem to find a page on rockbox site on devices that simply are impossible to put rockbox on for reason x,y
03:03:08 Part nls
03:03:46Bawitdabadan333 typically a .sh is a shell file for unix based systems similar to a batch file on windows
03:04:04dan333o do I run it in cygwin
03:04:14Bawitdabauhm u prolly could
03:04:28Bawitdabaif u open it up in a text editor u could read what it does
03:04:33Bawitdabait might have helpfull comments
03:04:51Bawitdabamight be dangerous running it without knowing what it does
03:05:23dan333so when I compile I get a warning error after I select normal build what should I do
03:05:41dan333using cygwin
03:05:49Bawitdabanot sure
03:05:59Bawitdabaarent packages prebuilt, why do u need to compile it
03:06:37dan333someone said I need to follow instructions for installing coldfire so I could compile
03:07:16dan333and I looked on the wiki and it said for automadic install run that script thing
03:07:29voltagexJuice-: what's the biggest harddrive for the X5?
03:07:44dan33360 gb I think
03:08:15voltagexsee, if I could have a 250gb hard drive in an MP3 player I would
03:08:19Bawitdabasad mp3 players dont have bigger drives yet
03:08:26voltagexalthough my collection is only 100gb atm
03:08:35Bawitdabahell 1tb drives are out already for normal pcs
03:08:40toffe82_Soap, Nico_P : one solution to record for the gigabeat could be using the analog input used by the remote connecting a microphone instead of the remote ( it will be a mono recording) . The other way is using the I2s bus on the dock connector (but we have to do the interface)
03:08:48 Join JdGordon [0] (
03:08:52Bawitdabaperpendicular writting allows up to 5tb drives to be made
03:09:08voltagexBawitdaba: that's a lot of high def pr0n
03:09:18Bawitdabai hope
03:09:25Nico_Ptoffe82_: the custom dock idea seems cool
03:09:27Soaptoffe82_: how about an ethernet jack while you're at it? ;)
03:09:29Bawitdabatry squeezing it on a 60gb mp3 player
03:09:39Juice-voltagex: yep its max 60gb.. a portable mp3 player with 250gb? hehe, would you carry a battery on a rucksack for it too?
03:09:45Bawitdabayeah eithernet would rock
03:10:00voltagexBawitdaba: the guys with video ipods at school have pr0n
03:10:04Bawitdabawould be nice to see a small mp3 player with a pcmcia slot
03:10:35voltagexJuice-: actually, I use my MP3 player in the house a lot so a wifi connection would do, but that chews batteries too
03:10:44Juice-these are so called ultra portable pcs.... not mp3 players :p
03:11:06Bawitdabayeah i dont really want video
03:11:06SoapI think a SDIO slot would be more likely than a full PCMCIA ;)
03:11:10*voltagex needs to learn C and how to program USBOTG so I can write a wifi-class driver for the H340
03:11:10toffe82_Soap : when I will finish the usb interface (one day... ;) ) and if somebody write a usb driver for an usb ethernet, no problem
03:11:12Bawitdabai just want mp3 and good quality
03:11:19Bawitdabahalf of the mp3 players suck at quality

03:13:40webguest33heres a few of them that I have handy:
03:13:42Bawitdabadepends on the size of ur speakers

03:14:15Bawitdabaright i knew that
03:14:50JdGordonhopefully the cov er will shield it abit :p... my desk isnt big enough for 2 speaker and a safe distancee from the disk
03:14:53voltagexoh! RMAA not RMA lol
03:15:45SoapJdGordon: many computer and "bookshelf" speakers are already decently sheilded, and I've never lost a HD next to my speakers, and they are pretty close.
03:16:33JdGordonthese are cheap pioneer spekers with plastic shells.. I doubt they are shielded :p
03:16:36SoapIf they don't gauss (is that the right word?) your CRT monitor I wouldn't worry, and even if they do, as long as you don't rub them back and forth over your HD I bet you are safe.
03:17:13SoapThe Slashdot consensus (for whatever _that_ is worth) is you can't harm a HD with magnets unless you really try.
03:17:51voltagexSoap: I've been told that by friends too
03:18:04voltagexjust don't put your disks in an MRI machine
03:18:07JdGordonawesome :D I just turned my lava lamp on fir the first time in ages.. and after about 5 min the blob inside exploded... looked soo cool
03:18:16webguest33don't put anything metal near an MRI machine
03:18:32webguest33they'll get really angry if you do, takes forever to fish a chair out of a 4T magnet
03:18:47JdGordonor a bullet, if youve seen the house md episode
03:18:57Soapyou know, I was always told that too, but they used a MRI to check my wife's neck after she had spinal fusion and three plates bolted in.
03:19:14*billytwowilly had an MRI once
03:19:26JdGordonSoap: surgical plates and stuff isnt magnetic
03:19:39JdGordonor not supposed to be
03:19:41billytwowillymust be made of nickel.
03:19:42voltagexmaybe it's time to turn my speakers down once the windows start shaking
03:20:02Soapvoltagex: that's just your house's way of telling you to open the windows and share.
03:20:18voltagexSoap: the church next to me may not like Drum & Bass
03:20:36webguest33also, very small plats will enclose a small part of the b field inside the magnet
03:20:38billytwowillyyou live next toa church? That must suck.
03:20:40SoapIs it Sunday there?
03:20:50webguest33since the flux is small, the heating is small and its reasonably safe
03:20:58webguest33though you never know
03:21:05SoapOh, well then give them their day.
03:21:10webguest33i have a friend who does MRI design work and he can never go near the magnets
03:21:16webguest33due to metal plates in his back
03:21:18voltagexdoesn't suck too bad, the minister isn't evangelical - understands that we're athiests
03:21:37billytwowillynice. If only more churches were like that.
03:22:17voltagexbillytwowilly: the Buddhists I've met seem to be the same
03:23:10*voltagex wants an iRiver W10. That would be one hell of a rockbox target
03:23:27voltagexactually, you could probably run full blown Linux on the thing
03:23:35toffe82_fyi, if you are looking for a good amplifier, cheap for your player, check this one, 30$, 8hours on batteries and really really good sound :
03:23:57voltagexfugly but cool
03:24:01billytwowillythat's good. We have some bad religious people up here. They don't like it when I tell them I think teaching kids religion is child abuse;)
03:24:02webguest33in arm, what does MOVS do?
03:24:15voltagexbillytwowilly: USA?
03:24:21billytwowillyAlberta, Canada
03:24:48billytwowillyThe only red state in Canada;)
03:25:21voltagexbillytwowilly: we have state elections here soon... voting for the first time.
03:25:35billytwowillyThat's good. Vote Libertarian.
03:25:54voltagexerr, labor and liberal are reversed here I think
03:26:11billytwowillylibertarian. Oh, are you in Britain?
03:26:24billytwowillyaustralia.. interesting.
03:26:28voltagexLiberal are currently in power in federal parliament. They're the ones who won't pull us out of Iraq, who don't fund schools properly
03:26:40voltagexalthough, school funding is technically a state thing
03:26:50voltagexand the state government is Labor
03:26:50Soap#rockbox-community is really the channel for Off-Topic
03:27:05voltagexbillytwowilly: see you there?
03:27:13billytwowillyIt would be pretty silly to pull out of Iraq now.... Dumb to go in in the first place though;) K, moving to community;)

04:03:35Nate_BentonHi guys
04:03:58 Quit bonbonthejon (Connection timed out)
04:04:01Nate_BentonI just had a couple quick questions about rockbox, before I decide to stick it on my 5 G iPod video.
04:04:02Nico_Phmm "stack smashing detected"... never seen that before
04:05:12Nate_BentonFirst of all, will I have to wipe my iPod completely before installing Rockbox? Second, will my MP4 movie files I have for my iPod work with Rockbox with some sort of a driver?
04:05:21Juice-with another wps i get data abort at 00040FB8
04:06:07Nate_BentonI really would like to experiment with Rockbox, but those are my only concerns.
04:06:47Nico_PJuice-: maybe try with the default... if that one doesn't work I don't know what to say
04:06:56SoapFirst = no.
04:07:01SoapSecond - no
04:07:18Nico_PI haven't done much testing on custom WPSs yet
04:07:21SoapSecond part the second = you can dual boot to Apple Firmware so you can view said movies.
04:07:40Nate_BentonI see, Thank you. Alright, then back to my first question then.
04:08:20Juice-Nico_P: finally, now its playing. but the wps doesnt work with any wps now. its all text without graphics
04:08:42Nate_BentonI'm going to assume from what I've read, that Rockbox won't be ready to play my songs I already have on there, correct? I'll have to put them on again? The songs I synced with iTunes will not appear with Rockbox, because of database incompatibility?
04:09:06Nico_PJuice-: what do you mean ? no pictures are displayed ?
04:09:22Juice-Nico_P: correct, no pictures in wps at all
04:09:46Nico_PJuice-: which WPS is that ?
04:09:50Soapnope, Nate_Benton, read the rockbox manual section on "Database". While Rockbox can not use the apple database, the songs are there, and if they were properly tagged _before_ they were added via iTunes, they are still tagged and Rockbox can build its own database of the songs.
04:10:19Nate_BentonThat's great =)
04:10:34Juice-Nico_P: and it seem to hang in the menus too, after a second or two its "releases" the scrolling and the scroll does all the scrolling in a millisecond that it was about to do before it "freeze"
04:10:56SoapThere is some lack-of-understanding regarding how songs you tag in iTunes _after_ they are added to an iPod get the metadata stored, if the metadata is only in the iPod database, or if iTunes rewrites the tags.

04:15:51Juice-Nico_P: Hmm.. i'll see if i could find a skipping track, i think i had one earlier with the latest build

05:28:07webguest33or not installed

05:28:33webguest33yeah, i wish i could remember how the cygwin installer works
05:28:34dan333t says something about a compiler not in my path so how can I fix that
05:28:48scorcheadd it to your path
05:28:50dan333when I try normal build
05:29:01dan333how do I add it to my path
05:29:31webguest33seems odd to me that cygwin would install it but not put it in your path
05:29:35webguest33my guess is its not installed doesn't add to your path.
05:29:51dan333what path should it be in
05:29:58webguest33regardless, following the instructions you posted above for building the tools will get it work
05:30:11Soapyour path is like your privates, a "special place" only you should touch.
05:30:11webguest33ideally you should use the first method on that page (
05:30:43dan333is that the path cygwin is in every time u start it
05:31:27webguest33cygwin probably starts in your home directory
05:31:47webguest33the path is just the list of places cygwin/windows/unix/whatever looks when youtype a command
05:31:51dan333ok so where would the compiler be now
05:31:54scorchethat is not the path..
05:32:27scorchewebguest33: aye...i was talking to him
05:33:08dan333can I just copy the compiler from where ever it is and paste it
05:33:22webguest33yes, just make sure you get all of it
05:33:29webguest33usuallypeople change the path though
05:33:58dan333so if my home was called dan333 under home would i just put it in there

08:36:18amiconnI am asking because I had an idea how to get rid of the hw-dependent default contrast at the UI level
08:36:39JdGordonumm... not really sure what you mean by the first bit, but the code is usefull anyway, but yeah, I tihnk thats the only setting needing it
08:36:43amiconnInstead, lcd_set_contrast() could handle the offset, just limiting the range a bit
08:41:46JdGordonamiconn: hmm.. i dont tihnk any code is actually there for the function dependant values
08:42:47JdGordonah no, it is
08:44:07Bawitdabaanyone know of a good coverart downloader for mp3cds
08:45:35JdGordonholy cow the yellow in rockboxed on the e200 is horrible :D
08:45:42amiconnJdGordon: Even when this code is available, I think it would be better to handle the contrast offset in the driver (why did nobody have this idea before??)
08:46:09amiconnIt would hide the hardware difference (which isn't really relevant to the user) from the ui
08:46:25JdGordonof course
08:46:46amiconnIt would just limit the settable contrast range a bit
08:47:08amiconn...but that's not problematic, since the range of actually *usable* values is much smaller anyway
08:47:19JdGordoncant remember who.. but there was talk about redoing the whole backlight timeout system to just use a seconds value instead of stupid indexes like it is now....
08:47:37amiconnYes, but that's another thing
08:47:56JdGordonor more specifically.. the driver would accept any value and the ui would choose which to allow the user to set
08:48:01JdGordonthey would be independant

10:21:57SlasheriBagder: the locking mechanism should be cop safe (if that one instruction is not interrupted by other core)
10:21:58jhMikeSBagder: issue? the mutex isn't nocache?
10:22:18Slasherithose cache things are already fixed in scheduler
10:22:28BagderI have a rather long email on the issue I could forward you
10:22:28Slasheriand i have added locking to critical functions also
10:22:47jhMikeSbut what about the mutex structure itself? shouldn't that be nocache too?
10:23:13SlasherijhMikeS: yes, surely it needs to be
10:23:41Slasherithe current scheduler in svn is not cop safe in any way
10:23:58jhMikeSpossible to attribute the data _type_ with it instead of every declaration?
10:24:29Slasherihmm, not sure if data type is enough

13:52:17linuxstbYes, the new bootloader works with older rockbox builds.
13:52:27iwantanimacwell i don't i'm just wondering, and no, older builds didnt work on the previous bootloader, as there was some new way of doing it to get dualboot working...

13:53:48iwantanimacah. okay. thanks for the clarification.

15:30:09ArnoOAre you using linux ?

15:30:20chrisjs169I can switch over to linux
15:30:22Juice^not at the moment
15:30:36Lloreanlinuxstb: "Writing" after running Sansapatcher?
15:30:39ArnoOBecause i can see the player when i plug it
15:30:56linuxstbLlorean: Yes, I think so.
15:31:01ArnoOUnder windows it's ok ?
15:31:02chrisjs169linuxstb: I didn't try just disconnecting it, as if it did have a problem, the OF would freeze while refreshing the database
15:31:14Lloreanlinuxstb: There were no ill effects on mine if I told windows to eject while it said "Writing." Windows would still safely eject it, and it won't on a device that's busy
15:31:20Juice^ArnoO: sansa cannot be accessed as a drive when rockbox is running, the usb functions are not implemented.. is that it?
15:31:28ArnoOoh ok
15:31:33ArnoOIt will be i think ?
15:31:51Juice^I would love to have that option.
15:31:51linuxstbLlorean: OK. Do you think a note about that is needed in the Windows section of the instructions? I think chrisjs169 said it didn't happen from Linux.
15:31:55Lloreanlinuxstb: The "Writing" message is just something the Sansa does in response to some sort of message Windows sends it, it's not the real status of the disk. I think Bagder mentioned that on his, while transferring files from Linux, the writing never came up (or behaved strangely) as well.
15:32:28chrisjs169linuxstb: Yeah, like Llorean, Windows safely ejects it without a problem
15:32:40linuxstbBTW, there's a "SansaE200InstallBeta" wiki page where the instructions are being devised...
15:33:32linuxstbLlorean: The "release-candidate" of sansapatcher is here if you want to run it through its paces - (binaries for Linux/win32/Mac)
15:33:36Lloreanlinuxstb: Yes, some sort of note about how it's normal, and as long as windows allows you to safely eject there will be no problem.
15:34:03ArnoOThe battery level is wrong too, no?
15:35:17chrisjs169the battery level does indeed have some kind of bug in it
15:35:24linuxstbLlorean: jdGordon mentioned problems with the OF not reliably being loaded from the firmware partition (sometimes it's loaded from OF.bin or OF.mi4). Could you see if you experience that?
15:35:47ArnoOAnd there is an another solution expect remove the battery to reboot my sansa when rockbox crash ?
15:36:01chrisjs169press and hold power/menu for 15 seconds
15:36:22chrisjs169it's a hardware based power off, so it'll work regardless of what happens (even on the OF)
15:36:50Lloreanlinuxstb: Alright, I'll see what it's doing on mine then.
15:37:34chrisjs169linuxstb: you may want to add in the 'Bootloader installation from windows' section that sansapatcher must be run from the command prompt, not by double clicking on it
15:37:46chrisjs169(assuming they use the exe)
15:37:49ArnoOWhat theme are you using?
15:38:24Lloreanlinuxstb: How is he noticing it load the OF from file vs partition? He doesn't have one so it errors?

16:13:28Nico_Plinuxstb: would you be willing to try it ?
16:13:46Nico_Pi'm particularly interested in boost ratios
16:14:11chrisjs169Nico_P: I can try it on my Sansa
16:14:48Nico_Pchrisjs169: do you know about boost ratio ? do you have tracks that skip ?
16:15:03chrisjs169both no =/
16:15:29Lloreanchrisjs169: I think the extra binary is there so that other functions of the program can be tested as well. I'm not really sure. Or maybe so you can restore the old-style bootloader (Is it the old-style one?) after you're done playing.
16:15:57LloreanNico_P: Is your new WPS code likely to improve WPS drawing performance, or just loading?
16:16:12Nico_PLlorean: drawing especially
16:16:16Nico_Ploading i'm not sure
16:16:46Nico_Pmy main goal was to do as little as possible when drawing the WPS
16:17:02chrisjs169Llorean: the mi4 is the Rockbox firmware, which makes it a little odd
16:17:16Lloreanchrisjs169: Well yes, that's why I called it a "bootloader". :-P
16:17:24Nico_PLlorean: also i wanted a cleaner code and i hoped for smaller binsize
16:17:35Nico_Psadly, binsize seems to be about the same
16:17:37Lloreanchrisjs169: What I was saying is that maybe it's the old-style bootloader that loads OF.bin, rather than the in-partition OF.
16:17:49chrisjs169Llorean: ah, ok
16:17:53Lloreanchrisjs169: Though I haven't looked at it, so this is just hypothetical.
16:18:26Lloreanchrisjs169: It could also just be there for testing the -a feature of sansapatcher.
16:18:59chrisjs169Llorean: ah, that's probably why
16:19:11LloreanNico_P: Well, performance increase without significant binsize change wouldn't be bad either.
16:19:54Nico_Pthat's why i'm looking for testers with "weaker" targets than my gigabeat
16:20:05LloreanYeah, not much you can notice on the gigabeat. :)
16:20:06Nico_Pit's hard to notice a performance increase on that one
16:20:55Nico_Pactually it does feel a little smoother but that's probably my imagination
16:21:24LloreanProbably, since for a while we ran the Gigabeat (we think) at 100mhz and it still never needed to boost. ;)
16:21:38LloreanAssuming the clock speed was changed properly (battery life was actually slightly worse according to some tests)

16:22:48Nico_PLlorean: would you have time to test on an ipod ?
16:23:00linuxstbchrisjs169: The PP5024.mi4 file included in the ZIP is just the bootloader which is embedded inside sansapatcher - you only need the executable for your platform.
16:23:19linuxstbNico_P: How can you measure the boost ratio? The boost ratio is only shown in the Audio debug screen...
16:23:41Nico_Plinuxstb: good point :)
16:23:49Lloreanlinuxstb: Did JDGordon say how to reproduce, or how he noticed, the loading of an on-disk OF.bin?
16:23:58LloreanOr attempt to load, or whatever?
16:24:01chrisjs169linuxstb: Ah, ok
16:24:28linuxstbLlorean: I think it told him - maybe he was holding the RIGHT button.
16:24:37Nico_Plinuxstb: at least it should be easy to load the default WPS and see if there's less sipping
16:24:41Lloreanlinuxstb: I tried holding Right and couldn't get any text output at all. =/
16:24:45Nico_Por other WPSs for that matter
16:24:55linuxstbLlorean: You could try renaming your OF.bin and see what happens. You can then restore it from within Rockbox if you have problems.
16:25:00Nico_Palso I'm not sure all WPSs work
16:25:11Lloreanlinuxstb: I removed my OF.bin, and it still boots regularly. I was hoping for a "Can't find OF.bin" message. :)
16:25:19LloreanBoots the OF regularly, I mean.
16:25:58LloreanNico_P: Make a TSR plugin that keeps track of the boost ratio much like battery_bench tracks voltage, then go straight from the plugin to WPS, leave it there for a few hours, then check its log. :-P
16:26:10LloreanOf course, then boost ratio would have to be active outside the debug screen.

16:31:17linuxstbI gave up waiting for you to build a bootloader, and built one myself - the bootloader and sansapatcher binaries are here -

16:33:42barrywardellthat might have been it. oh well, it's here anyway:">
16:34:18barrywardellbut you probably have the exact same one yourself
16:34:33linuxstbmd5 sums are different...
16:34:37Lloreanbarrywardell, linuxstb: Any idea why the bootloader clears the screen to white before loading OF or Rockbox?
16:34:47*linuxstb has no idea
16:34:54barrywardellLlorean: it must be in the init somewhere
16:35:11barrywardellthe bootloader doesn't do any lcd_update() at all unless there's an error
16:35:17Lloreanbarrywardell: Half the time, once it clears to white it fades to purple, and then black (not every pixel fades at the same rate), but the OF still boots.
16:35:19linuxstbMaybe avoid calling the lcd_init unless lcd_update is needed?
16:35:56barrywardellthat could work. but it would be nicer to find the cause of the problem
16:36:06LloreanIt's the purple fade that really bothers me.
16:36:11linuxstbbarrywardell: Also, JdGordon reported some inconsistency in loading the OF from the partition, but he was also experimenting with his own bootloader, so best to ask him for the details.
16:36:17LloreanIt looks like something has gone horribly wrong, and right before you panic, the OF finally decides to boot.
16:36:37barrywardellprobably something to do with the fact that it's asynchronous with dma
16:37:03barrywardellpity there's no irc logs from yesterday
16:37:11StalwartNico_P: i have nano and want to test
16:37:21Nico_PStalwart: cool
16:37:24barrywardelli assume that's because of the webserver changeover?

16:40:09barrywardellis there any reason why the sprintf-like functions don't support precision so that we can set the max string length?
16:40:17Nico_PLlorean: i probably misunderstood the boost ratio in the debug screen... it isn't updated when the audio thread screen isn't shown ?

16:52:04Juice^the battery section in debug for the sansa cannot be exited back to rockbox menus, it requires an forced shutdown.. is this known, could it be a bug?
16:52:31Soap.mpc isn't hungry enough either
16:52:31Nico_PStalwart: so you'd need something that used to skip with an SVN build
16:52:46Soaplike mp3 and multiple bands of EQ
16:52:49StalwartNico_P: nothing skipped with recent svns =\
16:53:04Soap5 bands of eq and mp3 doesn't skip?
16:53:18Soapif not add crossfeed, dithering, or peakmeters.
16:53:29Stalwartwait a bit, i'll do
16:54:06Nico_PStalwart: ideally, you should try the same config with SVN and my build to see if they are differences

16:55:40bluebrotherwow. My mini must be special

16:56:14smolynhey does anyone know what the most recent stableish build for a nano 1g is? i've been trying stuff from the 15th onwards and I can't seem to get it to play anything. it won't play anything, and whats weirder is that it has a lot of problems reading id3 tags from most of the files. Sometimes it even just says "File not there"
16:56:18Stalwarteq + gain + crossfeed + dithering == yea, tracks pays a wee bit slower than ususal
16:56:34bluebrotherused "Pop" preset, and default wps with peak meters
16:56:49bluebrotherthe peak meters get sluggish as hell and boost ratio stays at 100%
16:56:55Nico_PStalwart: could you test the same thing with an SVN buid ?

16:57:18Stalwartyup, boost is always 100

17:28:37linuxstbI think most profiling so far has been with the codecs - so that would have meant just adding that option to the Makefile in the code subdirectory. I'm not sure what's needed if you only want to profile some of the core functions.

17:46:10NBentonIs there anyway to boot Rockbox faster? Like to skip the Apple logo before Rockbox boots?
17:46:44linuxstbYou can remove the Apple firmware from your ipod's firmware partition.
17:47:59linuxstbYou can read about ipodpatcher and the ipod boot process a little here -
17:48:03bluebrotherthat will require to update the firmware partition every time you update rockbox, right?
17:48:45linuxstbNo, you can put the Rockbox bootloader in the firmware partition by itself.
17:48:50linuxstb(i.e. without appleos)
17:49:26linuxstbEven faster booting can be achieved if you don't use the bootloader at all, and just put Rockbox there - and in that case, you need to do it every time you upgrade Rockbox.
17:49:49bluebrotherah, ok.
17:50:27NBentonSo in order to remove the apple logo every time I turn on my iPod, it would require me to remove the AppleOS completely?
17:50:32bluebrotherbut when writing to bootloader to the firmware partition you can still boot OF using the apple_os.ipod method, right?
17:50:34linuxstbThe standard install attaches the bootloader to the end of the Apple OS image, which means both are loaded to RAM together on boot.
17:51:16linuxstbNBenton: You can't remove the Apple logo - that's displayed by the Apple bootloader which is safe in flash ROM. But you can reduce the amount of time it is displayed for.

17:53:20linuxstbNBenton: When the ipod is turned on, the Apple bootloader (in flash ROM) is run. This displays the Apple logo (without backlight), and then loads the firmware stored on disk in the firmware partition.
17:53:34 Join webguest39 [0] (i=54b3efca@gateway/web/cgi-irc/
17:54:07linuxstbNBenton: When you have Rockbox installed, the firmware the Apple bootloader loads is a combination of both the Rockbox bootloader (about 50KB) and the Apple firmware (about 5MB). As soon as this is loaded to RAM, the Rockbox bootloader is started, which turns the backlight on (but leaves the Apple logo there).
17:54:11webguest39hi there... i have a quick question: how do i dualboot on the jukebox recorder v1?
17:54:34linuxstbThe Rockbox bootloader then starts Rockbox itself, and it's Rockbox itself which displays the Rockbox logo.
17:54:52 Join chrisjs169 [0] (n=Jack@unaffiliated/chrisjs169)
17:54:56linuxstbNBenton: So the way to reduce boottime is to remove the 5MB worth of AppleOS from the disk partition.
17:55:09 Join perplexity [0] (
17:55:18bluebrotherhmm. Ipodpatcher can't write the embedded bootloader to the firmware partition itself?
17:55:35linuxstbwebguest39: I think you just select the ".ajz" file containing the original firmware from the Rockbox file browser.
17:55:46NBentonThank you, linuxstb.
17:56:12webguest39ah okay thank you ...will try this
17:56:14linuxstbbluebrother: No... It should be trivial to add, but I haven't done it. You can download the bootloader from though.

18:10:08barrywardell_ah yes, ok
18:10:54barrywardell_what we need to do is find what voltage is read when the battery is full, at 90%, 80%, ...0%
18:11:04linuxstbTheSphinX^: Regarding displaying the volume when changing it, I think mpegplayer needs a proper overlayed display for information like that, which also correctly handles the rotated screens (Sansa and Gigabeat).

20:07:25 Join acathla [0] (
20:07:45linuxstbThat's not really a realistic test - you need to be using files that the X5 can decode in realtime.
20:08:11TheSphinX^ok, i reencode it
20:08:41linuxstbOr try the 16:9 version - the wiki page says that decodes at 25fps, which is faster than the file's 24fps framerate.

21:16:15linuxstbstripwax: The sims look like that have rtc support - at least the rtc_read_datetime() function is implemented (uisimulator/common/stubs.c)
21:17:36linuxstbstripwax: Although for some reason, it looks like it's disabled in the sim for the ipodvideo (but not other targets). You could try just changing config-ipodvideo.h and see if it works.

23:12:12ootputhi guys, did any of you guys get itrip (dock connector) to work with rockbox & ipod?
23:14:47Juice^Someone should remap the keys for the image viewer, the scroll on sansa is so unstable with the rockbox code, it cannot ever be the keys that is next and previous, it easily scrolls by a few pics a time, and sometimes that will take ages for the actual photo to load because its preloading others will its scrolling .. maby the scroll could be the zoom or something
23:15:03Juice^I could proably remap it myself, but my cygwin is not being friendly
23:16:11Soapinstead of remapping keys to work around the problem, scroll instability should be addressed, eh?
23:16:25LloreanI was about to say, wouldn't the proper solution be "Make scrolling work right"?
23:16:52Juice^indeed... if someone could do that, it would be fantastic
23:18:01linuxstbHow does scrolling work on the Sansa? I can't tell from a photo...
23:18:45Lloreanlinuxstb: It's a raised mechanical wheel, you just rotate it. The motions are basically identical to the iPod, except your thumb's moving a wheel instead of sliding on a pad.
