00:26:45chrisjs169I got that to the past few days, but it compiles fine (for me anyways)
00:29:05chrisjs169all the default WPS's are there, so I'm guessing it's a bug (?)

00:57:09chrisjs169it's actually not a patch....the 'patcher' included the whole modified file, so you need to cp it to apps/plugins/doom

00:58:38robHey, can some one awsner a question
00:59:19 Quit Thundercloud (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:59:26robI was woundering, If i install rock box then will it delet everything on my ipod and or also make it imposible for me to get back to the normal ipod menu?
00:59:57LeetlandonYou install it, and it makes a folder and a file that makes it boot it.
00:59:57robSo i can choose to boot rock box or normal ipod
01:00:16LeetlandonTo boot into the normal mode you just hold << right after you power on.
01:00:42joshinAccording to the wiki for the e2xx series, someone is working on getting the FM radio working but it doesn't say who. Is it a secret? :)
01:00:58robAlso for the games can it suport emulators and roms?
01:01:09joshinThat's what I'd be interested in poking at but don't want to start working on it if it is almost done.
01:01:22chrisjs169joshin: I guess so :)
01:02:00chrisjs169....if only the e200 build would compile for me.....
01:02:08joshinchrisjs169: so you're the volunteer? Or did everyone take a step back when the devs were lined up so that you'd get stuck with it
01:02:38chrisjs169joshin: i don't program :P
01:03:11chrisjs169i originally came here trying to figure out why this compile isn't working, but ended up forgetting about it
01:03:37joshinAah. You were referring to the 'secret' part and not admitting that you were working on getting the tuner working. Stupid sleep adled brain.

01:19:46amiconnIt will be back after a few minutes, depending on how long the build takes
01:19:54chrisjs169usually takes around 6 mins or so

01:32:43barrywardellI was thinking it would be worth checking if those changes would help the ipod's battery consumption too
01:33:03barrywardellit would be a good test for someone with an ipod to do
01:33:51amiconnLCD controller shutdown makes no sense iiuc
01:34:11amiconnOn the greyscale ipods anyway, and people say the 5G LCD is readable w/o backlight
01:34:49robI cant get doom to work what the fuck like im so confused im looking at i made the new folder for doom and i added the .wad file it has here to dowload
01:34:52barrywardellbut in the FS task, toni claims it saves 12mA. I think that makes it worthwhile
01:34:54roband i get a plugin error
01:35:13*amiconn wonders whether the ATA controller actually enables the controller, or whether it's in fact ATA power...
01:35:35amiconn12mA just for the lcd controller sounds wrong...
01:36:19barrywardellthat's what he claims anyway. I haven't done measurements myself

03:36:02TrueJournalsLeetlandon: That doesn't really help... I'm guessing the patch isn't patching cleanly? Which patch is it?
03:36:48LeetlandonDoom scroll wheel patch.
03:36:55LeetlandonSorry, had trouble finding the patch code.
03:37:21TrueJournalsProbably just out of date... you can try applying the failed hunks by yourself
03:37:54TrueJournalsWell, first, I should ask if you applied any other patches before trying to apply that one?
03:38:11LeetlandonNope, this is the first one.
03:38:22LeetlandonIve read all the documentations.
03:38:46TrueJournalsOK... in that case... I'll tell you how to apply the failed hunks manually. It's useful to know if it ever happens with another patch
03:39:15TrueJournalsIt should give you a list of files that failed and say it created a reject file at (filename).rej
03:40:08TrueJournalssimple open that file, open the original file... now, this will show the code. In the .rej file, any line that does not have a + or - before it should be in the original code. Any line with a - should be removed from the original code, and any line with a + should be added to the original code
03:40:31TrueJournalsLook for a line before a + or -, and search for it in the original code, then, add or remove the lines accordingly
03:40:42LeetlandonOrigninal code?
03:40:53LeetlandonOh, the C file?
03:40:55TrueJournalsOriginal code = original file (filename)
03:42:18TrueJournalsNow, once you apply it manually, it should compile and work fine... If it doesn't, then something major in the code was changed. Post on the tracker saying that the patch is out of date, and hopefully someone will fix it for you (but it might take a couple of days)
03:46:42LeetlandonShould I modify the original with the patch data?
03:47:14TrueJournalsyes, add the lines that start with + and remove the lines that start with -
03:47:22LeetlandonAlright, got it.
03:47:26LeetlandonThanks a bunch.
03:47:36TrueJournalsNo problem

04:29:40hcsit has almost completely different hardware and will not be supported in the forseeable future
04:30:32chris2142sdhmm. That's strange. I guess I heard wrong.
04:30:58hcsmaybe I missed something?
04:31:55chris2142sdI probably just heard wrong. Was support for the nano 1g just added?
04:32:27chris2142sdhow about support for some other ipod incarnation?
04:32:31hcsnot sure when it was added, but it has been a few months
04:33:03hcssupport for some of the 5.5g ipod videos was making progress
04:33:03chris2142sdThis would have been sometime between now and the beginning of march. I could have just heard wrong too.
04:33:08scorchesupport for the 1st gen has been a little over a year, i suppose
04:33:26chris2142sdI guess I'll be buying a sansa then;)

07:43:20amiconnjhMikeS: It was not the spec itself which said that the COMM chunk can be larger than 18(+8) bytes, but an article explaining the aiff format. It states that while a standard COMM chunk is 18 bytes, a parser should tolerate a longer one because of possible format extensions
07:44:08amiconnjhMikeS: And btw, apple has the aiff specs online:
07:44:43amiconnWe could also support AIFF-C (AIFC) files, at least the type with no compression
07:45:34amiconn(a quite common limitation for audio programs supporting AIFC)
07:48:01JdGordonamiconn: how many codecs do we have which need the whole buffer in one block to work? just midi?
07:52:01amiconnCurrently none.
07:52:19amiconnmidi as a codec would need even more than just the whole midi file at once

07:53:47amiconnI think we should, but midi is even more special, as I said
07:54:08amiconnI can't think of a nice solution for supporting midi in the playback system
07:56:31JdGordonIm starting to lean towards a memory layout with a block section and then a ring buffer after that, both being able to be resized fairly easily so those codecs would just resize the block section to the size they need and the playback engine would then buffer into the ring untill the block can be shrunk again (it would also be used for the current tracks Mob also)...
07:56:45 Quit himitsu (Read error: 111 (Connection refused))
07:56:47amiconnPractically all the mod formats need the whole file at once. SID is an example, and so the sid codec has to copy them. It copies them to a n own, static buffer, and since sid files are small, this always works
07:56:48JdGordonthats about as far as I've thought about it.. so its rough :p
07:57:43amiconnBut for other mod format this won't work. It's this copying that limits the maximum mod size to 400-something KB for the mod codec in the tracker
07:58:28amiconnEven some ProTracker mods exceed this, and ImpulseTracker mods are usually much bigger
07:59:15JdGordonwhats the general maximum one of these files would get to? 1mb? 5mb?
07:59:48amiconnThere is no general maximum. I've seen ImpulseTracker mods >6MB, but there might be even larger ones

Would be get away with a function to get X bytes from the ring, and a functoin to release a block from the ring? then the only hard part is when we need to wrap around the end of the buffer... if the requested size is too big (but it would fit at the start of the buffer) just skip that section and continue...
08:54:58tsuyoshiif you've only got a couple megs.. there's just no way to fit most mods in memory

13:49:16B4gderit even shows the path
13:52:22PaulJamcrop: the SimpleGuideToCompiling wiki page suggests using the −−binary option. but i'm not sure why.

13:55:11DooMMasteRno...but the one from the I hoped that there might be a faster one...with maybe less fetures
13:56:01DooMMasteRor is it not build available that runs smooth on a 3g....due to its CPU....

15:00:24B4gderintgr: see the NewPort wiki page
15:00:38intgrThanks again B4gder.
15:00:45B4gderor try disassemble the files
15:00:54B4gderthere's a very high probability the arch is ARM
15:01:05intgrNope, it disassembles to junk.
15:01:16B4gderyeah, they may be scrambled/encrypted

15:05:46DooMMasteRthe rest is encrypted
15:06:11DooMMasteRtha's why you have to replace the bootloader and DualBoot is not possible
15:06:30B4gderno, that's not correct

15:06:55B4gder1. the h10 bootloader is what I refer to as scrambled
15:07:25B4gder2. dual-boot is indeed possible on the h10, we should just be able to load the mi4, decrypt it and run it

15:35:46intgrToo bad.
15:37:12B4gderhow do you update the firmware, is a tool or do you just copy stuff to the player?
15:37:28intgrIt's a tool, you need to boot the player into a special mode.
15:37:33DooMMasteRfor whitch player???
15:37:37intgrSo that's pretty likely.
15:37:42intgrPhilips SA230/00C
15:37:45B4gderintgr: and that mode isn't mass storage?
15:37:52intgrB4gder: Nope.
15:38:05intgrIIRC, I last flashed it two years ago I think.
15:38:37B4gderwell, I think there are windows tools that can "snoop" on usb traffic
15:38:58B4gderas I assume the tool is running on windows
15:39:03intgrYeah, or VMware.
15:39:44B4gdervmware running windows you mean
15:41:03B4gderyou should also try to see if there are other sa230 owners interested in helping out

17:07:07B4gderspahija: it is in the rockbox manual

17:07:23Lloreanspiorf: But it's not supported by use, and never will be.
17:07:32spahijaB4gder, I tried that go
17:07:47B4gderspahija: then you need to fix the problems and try again

17:39:18spahijaoh I see
17:39:27GodEaterMost users adopt the \Artists\Albums folder approach

17:41:31spahijamarkun, yes but I was thinking more of storage place for file to be comaptible for both
17:42:05GodEaterspahija: but there is NO way for an ogg file to be compatible - no matter where it's stored
17:42:32spahijasome files that I have are ogg others mp3
17:43:03GodEaterwell the apple firmware will only ever play the mp3 files, and then only if they're loaded on in the iTunes manner
17:43:14GodEatereither using iTunes itself, or something like gtkpod etc.
17:43:41spahijaGodEater, reading my mind :D ...gtkpod running as we speak
17:44:15GodEaterwell that will store all your music under ipod_control somewhere in some obfuscated folder / file name combo
17:44:39GodEaterand you can choose to store your ogg files there if you really want (but I'd consider you mental if you did)
17:44:41spahijaGodEater, but I get this right I can move files where ever I want and rockbox will play it

17:45:20GodEateryou finally lost your rag over the gigabeat page huh ? :)
17:45:20markunthe question is not about the formatting
17:45:57markunGodEater: I removed the section which had the claim that the Gigabeat X uses OLED and someone changed another section to include that claim again
17:46:15markunI wonder who first made that up
17:46:23GodEaterput it in the "discussion" page
17:46:26markunI have
17:47:03markunI guess the first time someone wrote it it was just a mistake (might have been confused with the Gigabeat P) but after that it's on wikipedia... so it must be true
17:47:11[g2]Llorean, markun THX
17:47:14GodEaterHow about changing the section they just put in to say explicitly something like "despite some claims to the contrary, the X does not have an OLED display)

17:48:28GodEater[g2]: I don't believe it's possible currently - I don't believe an open source compiler exists for the shuffle's architecture (either gen).

20:19:29Renoi read the manual.
20:19:41Renoi even printed out all 146 pages out.
20:19:51Domonokyso you know which games are there.. why do you ask ?
20:20:01GodEater_so you know that all the games that exist for Rockbox come with it.
20:20:09pixelmathere is a whole chapter about plugins - one part being "games"...
20:20:28Renoi know but they told me yesterday that there where more games
20:20:46Renoand that it could have "gameboy" games
20:21:05Renobut i just dont get that.
20:21:44Renothey told me to look on google for games for rockbox but i can't find any and i really dont know what to look for.
20:22:00GodEater_I suspect "they" told you to look for games for gameboy actually
20:22:03AloneaReno: you take a rom file for gameboy games and all the other games automatically come with rockbox
20:22:21AloneaReno: only thing you have to get is gameboy roms and the doom files.
20:23:09Renook what is a gameboy "ROM" thats the part i dont get?
20:23:47mkifile images of the gameboy games
20:23:50GodEater_it's a file, it contains data from a gameboy cartridge
20:24:27Renook? does that mean i have to copy that "from" the gamboy catrige?
20:24:45GodEater_unless google invents a way for you to download physical objects, then no
20:24:48AloneaReno: file types are .gb and .gbc (gameboy and gameboy color) you can get it from cartidge or get them illegally, though there are some legal roms out there.
20:26:34Renoi know u guys told me that yesterday but how i s my pc supposed to read the cartidge or where can i downloaod them?
20:26:44GodEater_you don't download a cartridge
20:26:45Renoand how is that illegal?
20:26:47GodEater_you download a file

20:27:21Renowhat is legal and what is illegal where camn i get legal or illegal games?
20:27:22GodEater_as Alonea says, it's usually a .gb or .gbc ile
20:27:37GodEater_we do NOT tell people where to get them from

20:42:36amiconnlinuxstb: ide_power_enable() is for switching the hdd power pin on targets which support it, while ata_enable() is for switching the ata buffers on targets with a separate usb<->ata bridge
20:43:03linuxstbAh, so ata_enable() is irrelevant for PP targets?
20:43:15amiconnWhen enabling usb, the firmware needs to hand over hdd control to the usb bridge, meaning that the cpu needs to disconnect from the ata bus
20:43:53spahijaIs it just me or Rockbox is not stable on Ipod 3Gen
20:44:53linuxstbspahija: I've never seen Rockbox on the 3rd gen, but it's not a very well developed target, so it wouldn't surprise me if there are issues.
20:44:54spahijait just locks up when I try to go from one "menu" to anothe
20:44:59mkidefault builds arent stable on my mini 1g either
20:45:22mkithe... frequency scaling disabled builds work, but eat battery quite nicely :P
20:45:27spahijalinuxstb, so its "alpha" version ?
20:46:24linuxstbamiconn: I assumed from ata.c that ide_power_enable() was the right function to implement - I added code to toggle the "IDE0" bit in DEV_EN, and it doesn't break anything, but I'll have to do some runtime tests to see if it's actually helping.
20:47:03linuxstbspahija: Well, ipods are probably the least stable of all Rockbox targets, and the 3rd gen is the least stable ipod...

21:25:52jhMikeSlinuxstb: was swcodec good on threads or does mpegplayer use all the slots up?
21:26:22linuxstbjhMikeS: IIRC, I had to increase the number of threads.
21:27:27linuxstbRob24: You need the 6 files listed in the manual...
21:27:27jhMikeSso it's at the limit now? to have all this seeking work, I really don't want the audio thread handling UI. it'll just be too messy.
21:27:39linuxstbSo you want one more thread?
21:28:13linuxstbI think the targets with remote LCDs need the most threads - for the remote scroll thread.
21:28:37Rob24sh** i need 5e and 5f still >.>
21:29:07jhMikeSok. I'll need Audio, Video, Buffer, and UI I think.
21:29:10Rob24where can i find them?
21:29:27linuxstbWhat about doing UI in the video thread? Or is that going to be too troublesome on the dual-core targets?
21:29:37DomonokyRob24: same answer as bevor..:-) google
21:30:02jhMikeSI really don't want the worker threads involved in any way...they really should just worry about their own stream or it's too twisted
21:30:50linuxstbOK, I've just got a natural dislike of threads... But I trust you to do the right thing.
21:30:56jhMikeSand trying to do that with the COP isn't possible anyway without lots of locking and sync
21:31:13*jhMikeS loves threads and lots of async stuff :)
21:31:47linuxstbI guess 3 or 4 threads isn't going to make any difference...
21:32:10jhMikeSMy tendency is to prefer what is simpler _and_ meets the needs really.
21:32:48jhMikeSThe buffering might be usuable in the core. It should be able to play forward and reverse and doesn't use any wrapping.

22:13:36Nico_PDomonoky: and I suppose you are aware that the controls could do with some resizing
22:14:32Domonokyyes, especially in the theme dialog, but i dont know to much about wxwidgets.. :-)
22:14:48LearHad a look at rbutil (for the first time). When I went to the "Install theme" page, it didn't show any "Ok" and "Cancel" buttons, which was a bit confusing. Resizing the window a little made them show.
22:15:00LearCan't easily repeat it though...
22:15:12DomonokyLear: yes i know this..
22:15:47Nico_PI would've loved seeing rbutil in Qt :)
22:15:55Domonokythe problem is that the controls can differ much in size, and i dont know how to proper resize a window in wxwidgets..
22:16:21DomonokyQt would make it easier.. :-) so if you start a port.. i will help :-)
22:16:23LearDoesn't wxwidgets have decent layout managers?

22:17:16LearGood, it can be fixed then... :)
22:17:37Nico_PI was just saying that because I'm a KDE user and GTK is kinda weird in a KDE env :)

22:18:45Nico_PLear: gnome users should switch :p
22:19:27Domonokyyes, this function is broken, i dont know why, i think because i dont use the installer which was originally used ?

23:01:12linuxstbThose instructions were extracted from an old version of the install instructions, and haven't been adapted properly for standalone use...
23:01:54webguest09Pls, i need help

23:04:30webguest09i reset it lots of time but it do nothing
23:04:45linuxstbPut it into disk mode, connect to your PC and finish the install.
23:04:56webguest09i cant open it
23:05:06webguest09and my comp dont see it wen i connect it
23:05:16webguest09it stock at the apple logo
23:05:28linuxstbYou need to put your ipod into disk mode.
23:05:42Psy87ok, my sektor size is 512bytes
23:06:30linuxstbPsy87: Do you know the disk device assigned to your ipod? e.g. /dev/disk1 ?
23:07:15linuxstbOK, /dev/disk2 is the device. (disk2s3 is the current HFS partition on that disk)
23:07:17Psy87thats what disk utility sasy
23:07:24Psy87ah ok
23:08:05webguest09thx a lot men!!
23:08:23webguest09ok now that it is in disk mode i go where?
23:08:36 Join alienbiker99 [0] (
23:09:02linuxstbPsy87: So the "dd" command you need will be "dd if=mbr-video30gb.bin of=/dev/disk2" (assuming you have the 30GB video)
23:09:16linuxstbwebguest09: Did you download and extract ?
23:09:18webguest09i wright it where?
23:09:28webguest09i extract it
23:09:34linuxstbTo your ipod?
23:09:35Psy87where should i save the table file?
23:09:48webguest09ill put it on my ipod
23:10:21linuxstbPsy87: Anywhere you want. But you need to be able to find it in the terminal. The easiest place will probably just be the Desktop.

23:11:38webguest09ok im in the rockbox folder, now i click what?
23:12:01linuxstbYou don't click, you just extract the contents of the zip to your ipod, and you're done.
23:12:19webguest09thx a lot
23:12:21linuxstbYou may want to do the same thing with the fonts zip file.
23:12:36Psy87ok, done so far
23:12:50linuxstbHave you done the "dd" ?
23:13:31Psy87yes, know just erase using disk utility, right?
23:13:53linuxstbYes. Or just type "newfs_msdos -F32 -v iPod /dev/rdisk2s2"
23:14:29Psy87ok, terminal is already open :)
23:14:52linuxstbIt's easier than all that messing around with the mouse...
23:15:45Psy87yes, an it looks like you know how to handle with the terminal
23:16:01***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
23:17:00Psy87now its FAT32 :) thank you very much
23:17:47linuxstbOK, now make sure the original Apple firmware is still working on your ipod, and if so, install Rockbox.
23:18:18Psy87yes it does "Do not disconnect" is still blinking
23:18:52linuxstbI mean disconnect and check the original menus appear OK.

23:31:37linuxstbWhat did you do?
23:32:05Psy87i copied the folder .rockbox to my ipod an restarted it
23:32:39linuxstbThe folder definitely started with a "." ?
23:33:08linuxstbAnd inside there is a rockbox.ipod file (amongst other things) ?
23:33:10Psy87but i take e 2nd look
23:33:48linuxstbA common problem on Macs is that you'll get a "rockbox" folder, with a ".rockbox" folder inside, and that ".rockbox" folder will be hidden by default in Finder...
23:34:55Soapscorche: pong.
23:34:58Psy87he didnt copy it, but i see all hidden files an i dont have this problem, i restart again
23:37:00Psy87ok, it finally works :) thank you a lot

23:46:34alienbiker99what player do you have
23:47:14linuxstbLeetlandon: You already can on the gigabeat, on other players, you can't because the CPU isn't powerful enough to do both things at once.
23:47:21 Quit Psy87 ("Quitting!")
23:49:14LeetlandonWell, can I enable it anyways, or will it crash?
23:51:42linuxstbIn theory you could. You'll need to disable the use of IRAM in Rockboy as that stops audio playback.
23:52:18Rob24IS there any way to cusomize a snes controllar to plug into the head phone jack of my ipod video? I heard that the head phone jack is is a serial port
23:52:45linuxstbNo, the headphone jack is a headphone jack... There is a serial port in the dock connector.
23:53:13 Quit moos ("Glory to Rockbox")
23:53:20linuxstbEarlier ipods had a separate serial port jack next to the headphone jack.
23:53:48Rob24kk, so if you did want to make a custom controllar would it be possible with the dock conector?
23:54:31linuxstbIn theory. You would have to write the drivers for Rockbox as well.
