00:02:55 Quit moos ("Glory to Rockbox")
00:03:00linuxstbLars_G: No problem ;)
00:03:02Lars_Gbluebrother: Altough it seems one of the SoC projects is a good usb stack, acoording to Llorean so some devices might get USB mode support after summer (let's pray)
00:03:56bluebrotherLars_G: I know ... I just was referring to the current state. Having usb support in Rockbox would be a great thing
00:04:16bluebrotherespecially with issues like this mini-hangs-sometimes-on-reboot
00:04:20jhMikeSLars_G: Kick back, take your pants off and relax - this #rockbox afterall ;)
00:04:31bluebrotherhit me just of today again. Kinda annoying.
00:05:00Lars_GjhMikeS: the thing is I am not sure if the big heads here are MIT-grade assholes or street-grade relaxed geeks.
00:06:19LloreanLars_G: Somewhere in between.
00:06:30jhMikeSIf /me
00:06:43jhMikeS's head is looking big it's probably encephalitis
00:07:13 Part LinusN
00:07:19LloreanThere are channel guidelines, because the channel is logged and we don't like the log too clogged, so the rules are enforced most of the time, but there's a general acknowledgement that people are humans, so we don't beat down every bit of humor with clubs.
00:08:13bluebrotherbig heads are usually somewhat strange, but once you are used to it the people here are quite nice.
00:08:35*bluebrother likes the friendliness of this channel
00:08:37*jhMikeS tries and tries to get beaten but just can't seem to invoke it

00:10:24Lars_Gomg what have I done
00:10:45bluebrothermaybe throw forehead around?
00:14:06scorchelinuxstb: for future reference, "/cs access #rockbox list" will give you a list of ops on the channel
00:17:23toffe82just one question perhaps a little off topic : do you think that we can use this kind of stuff to stream out the video from a player ?

00:18:44Lloreantoffe82: Probably not, as it requires "USB2.0" speeds which probably means full speed.
00:19:29bluebrothersounds like this is some kind of graphics-card-over-usb thing. Which would require a driver for this "graphics card"
00:19:38toffe82but on some player the chip is a usb2 (gigabeat) , the one on the dock also
00:19:54 Join hannesd [0] (
00:20:34LloreanYes, but can it support full speed serving as host, or high speed serving as host?
00:21:22toffe82good question :)

00:22:40LloreanMost USB Host supporting devices seem to not support the fastest speed despite being USB2.0 compliant.
00:24:32saratogai'd assume its a CPU issue
00:24:42saratoga480mbit is supposed to be cpu intensive

01:18:31Brettodo I just add new files anywhere anyhow I please and then ask ROckbox to search and create a database?

03:40:25saratogathe manual implies it does, so i guess thats just a normal sansa on amazon
03:41:10digerati1338webguest97: go here:
03:42:32markunwebguest97: why do you use different nicks? It's a bit confusing
03:43:42digerati1338saratoga: I checked out the link you gave and it looks like a non-R model to me, but I can't be sure.
03:45:24webguest97Where do i out the extracted theme file in
03:45:35saratogalooking online, rhapsody is just PlaysForSure, so its probably a regular one
03:46:07ivanthis sucks finally got rockbox on my 60gb photo iPod and mom connected it to my lappy and itunes deleted everything
03:47:45webguest97Where do i place the extracted them file in my ipod?
03:48:25digerati1338webguest98: just save the zip to your desktop, right click, extract all, select your ipod
03:49:10digerati1338saratoga: when i got mine i was able to get it very cheap with some rebates. I don't know if they are still doing that but you might try a quick search.
03:50:52saratogayeah i know, but prices have been rising on the sansa lately

04:35:50jurriequestion wrt to Sansa dev't. Would the white screen meltdowns that I see from time to time be expected to be related to memory corruption issues associated with plugins (i.e. games) or RockBox system APIs? Since the plugins run on all platforms I would guess that these are fairly well flushed out by now. However, if that's not the case then this is an area where I could contribute a bit.

05:59:49ptw419it's even a better time trying to find what you need in that thing...

16:09:10kkurbjunmarkun, what's your feeling on
16:09:59kkurbjunI really like it personally, it does make navigation much easier with one hand/not having to try and get to the side buttons
16:11:05aliaskI was actually just looking at the gigabeat keymap and thought that this was a very strange way to have it.
16:11:16CelticSoulguys, beside audacity and sonic-visualiser, is there any app to view frequency spectrum of and audio file for linux?
16:13:24kkurbjunaliask, yes, I don't really like having A as the file browser, center cross is much nicer
16:13:44kkurbjunit really makes it so you have to twist your hands around to go straight to the file browser
16:13:52aliaskDoes the gigabeat F/X have a dedicated play button on the side? (Like the S)
16:13:59Lloreankkurbjun: The most recent version of that patch messes up the current keymap though
16:14:18Lloreankkurbjun: The ONLY change (IMHO) should be that in the WPS, "Select" goes back to the filetree, and "A" pauses.
16:14:33LloreanIt changes several other things too, which I feel shouldn't be changed.
16:14:45kkurbjunno play button on the side
16:14:57Lloreanaliask: No. The "A" button should mimic the behaviour of the "Play" button on other players, imho
16:15:04kkurbjunllorean, I only really care about select as filetree as well
16:15:16kkurbjunthe rest should match other players
16:15:26Lloreankkurbjun: Well, the most recent patch undoes some of the effort to match other Rockboxes.

16:16:35kkurbjunand I don't remember what the others are off hand, ok, I didn't realize that, I was mainly using the menu key and the arrows before because of the select oddity
16:17:05BigBambiHi chaps: I can easily change 6920 to do what Llorean says - the only reason I changed it more was as I didn't think it would be included
16:17:09LloreanBasically, as far as I can tell, the only "problem" relative to other Rockboxes is the wrong keymappings in the WPS.
16:17:25kkurbjunwell, I agree with the select and a change then, that's only in the WPS correct?
16:17:29kkurbjunok, that works

16:17:44 Quit boxrock (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
16:18:15BigBambiIn answer to your comments, I changed it more because I only just prefer it that way, and there din't seem to be the desire to commit

16:18:36BigBambiwhat do you think?
16:18:45LloreanBigBambi: You should never put things you don't expect to be committed in the tracker. It specifically exists for things you're attempting to get committed. :)
16:18:51kkurbjunI would like to fix at least the a and select, and I would be willing to commit it
16:19:11BigBambiI put it there beacuse I thought others might prefer it too

16:44:08 Quit boxrock (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
16:45:08BigBambiI think the play/pause button on the remote is better acting as A, as if you have the main unit in your pocket it is more useful to pause/resume playback than act as select. If it were select you would need to get the unit out of your pocket to see the screen anyway unless you had your filetree really well memorised

18:22:26desowinbe careful and check out
18:22:52pixelmawebguest09: do you run rockbox while trying to connect?
18:23:01bluebrotheryou need to boot into the sansa firmware to get a usb connection
18:24:06 Quit webguest63 (Client Quit)
18:24:07webguest09no it runs automatically everytime i turn it on
18:24:11webguest09and it has a -1 error
18:24:30webguest09so the normal firmware doesnt get detected
18:24:50LloreanTurn off the sansa
18:24:53LloreanPlug in USB while it's turned off
18:25:15webguest09its still doesnt get detected
18:25:25webguest09and the -1 error still display
18:25:40LloreanYou didn't use the official installer did you?
18:25:46LloreanYou can't get the -1 error if you installed the official way.
18:25:52LloreanNot while trying to boot the original firmware, at least
18:26:10webguest09Never mind
18:26:27webguest09i installed rockbox while it was still in build
18:26:35webguest09it was never officials and thats what messes it up
18:26:49webguest09but i returned it back to circuit city
18:27:01webguest09i was just wondering what might be wrong
18:27:12LloreanWell -1 means you didn't follow all the install directions properly
18:27:18LloreanIt means that "Rockbox.mi4 wasn't found"
18:27:49webguest09are you guys going to make rockbox for nano second gn
18:28:09LloreanTargets aren't really planned
18:28:15LloreanSomeone with a second gen nano would have to work on it
18:28:44webguest09Can you tell someone t work on it
18:28:56webguest09i will pay you $25
18:29:29Llorean$25 doesn't magically make people have time, or an interest, and porting is hard work.
18:29:34LloreanSomeone has to already be interested in it
18:29:34desowinsuch price for porting is silly
18:29:36bluebrotherfinding out how to run custom code on the nano for $25?
18:29:47LloreanYou're better off learning how to program yourself, and working on it.
18:29:57webguest09$1000 dollars
18:30:11bluebrotherthe nano 2G is much more work than just a couple of hours
18:30:40bluebrothermoney won't attract devs. Development is done for fun, not for money
18:31:07webguest09then tell someone to do it for fun
18:31:11webguest09or maybe one of you can
18:31:16bluebrotherthat's the way open source works. At least, the majority of it.
18:31:17Lloreanwebguest09: Do it for fun.
18:31:19*Llorean wonders if it worked.
18:31:31webguest09i dont know how to
18:31:36webguest09im rockbox dumb
18:31:48bluebrotherthat doesn't imply you can't change that.
18:31:54webguest09if u help me out i will be able to
18:31:58desowindon't require anyone to work atleast
18:32:27webguest09i just hope someone does it for fun
18:32:33webguest09i would really appreciate it
18:32:41desowinmany people would
18:32:46bluebrotherif you want to seriously work on Rockbox you'll find helpful people in here.
18:33:25bluebrotherone of the big problems with the 2G is that everything is encrypted. Someone needs to find out how to run custom code, and in that case it's quite hard.

19:02:03DerPapstno sorry. quick hands are empty
19:02:19XavierGryeah I don't see it updating
19:02:33Lars_Gmy ipod nano rocbox install has troubles, I reinstalled yesterday, since the itunes forced me to reformat it, and I used the nano partition image to convert the part table to fat32 (in case it matters)
19:02:44Lars_Gcompiled a svn pull of yesterday and installed
19:03:07Lars_Gnow, rockbox runs, and I could unzip files in the ipod, but rockbox itself can't write to the disk/flash
19:03:11DerPapstBagder: the image hasn't been updated since 7 minutes or so.. that's why i wondered.
19:03:43Lars_Gif i save a config, it says "saved" but if I reset it is not saved. if I save a config (and the file is created) then I can't save any more configs after first write, it says failed
19:03:54badsheepywhy did itunes force you to format it?
19:04:17badsheepyim sure thats not supposed to happen
19:04:19Lars_Gand if I initialize the database, it can't save configs (failed) and I can't browse files anymore
19:04:46Lars_Gif I interactively initialize the database, it reads all the files, and hangs there, I guess it can't write
19:04:51Lars_Gthe question is... why?
19:04:57DerPapsthave you also formatted /dev/sdX2 then?
19:05:01 Quit perldiver (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
19:05:18DerPapstor only dd'ed the new mbr to your pod?
19:05:20Lars_Gbadsheepy: suddenly all itunes started reporting the ipod was corrupted and the lists said the easiest route was to restore the ipod.
19:05:29LloreanSo, perhaps the flash is bad
19:05:33Lars_GDerPapst: yes I formated the sda2 partition
19:05:41LloreaniTunes reports it's corrupted, and Rockbox has problems writing to it
19:05:47LloreanThis does seem to suggest hardware failure of some sort
19:05:59DerPapstthen i dunno. maybe Llorean is right
19:06:06Lars_GLlorean: see, thing is when itunes reported it corrup rockbox still could work perfectly
19:06:16Lars_GI reset it only to be able to drag songs from itunes
19:06:48Lars_Gthe flash also seems ok since after reiniting it I installed lots of songs on it via amarok yesterday and they're playing perfectly in rockbox
19:06:54XavierGrkkurbjun: I agree with that buttons change too, because most of the targets follow a similar patter in the center button
19:06:57DerPapstdoes the apple_fw have problems to?
19:07:04Lars_Gthe trouble only ocurrs when rockbox tries to write.
19:07:06LloreanLars_G: Have you done any sort of filesystem check
19:07:06 Join pearldiver [0] (
19:07:12Lars_GDerPapst: no the apple fw works
19:07:25XavierGrkkurbjun: though markun is opposed to that idea, so I don't think he will welcome that commit
19:07:31Lars_Gno, let me fsck it
19:07:36DerPapstso it can read (and write)?
19:08:06moosXavierGr: hi, I'm not sure about this, markun isn't a disctator ;P
19:08:14moosdictator even
19:09:08Lars_Ghow was the test mode started on a nano?
19:09:10XavierGrwell last time Llorean and me suggested that it should have been changed but markun was a little hesitant about it (I can understand his hesitation though if he is very used to that button)
19:10:24XavierGrbut it quite confusing I think, I have 4 rockbox targets and all of them except the gigabeat have the center button go to file browser (while in WPS).
19:10:33moosXavierGr: like always, we don't care at all about OFs behaviours, and that is the only point IIRC then I assume markun will folow the majority (markun: hey ;)
19:10:34Lars_GDerPapst: ok, Apple FW can read, but can't write either
19:11:15DerPapsthow have you formatted your iPod?
19:11:26moosXavierGr: I'm all for the coherence too
19:11:28XavierGrmoos: I don't know if the current mapping has anything to do with OF

19:11:46XavierGrpoor markun he must be around an airport atm :P
19:11:47moosthat was the main point if I remenber correct
19:11:57mooshehe indeed :)
19:12:03DerPapstwhat does -n do?
19:12:20Lars_GDerPapst: sets volume name (wich becomes the ipod's name)
19:12:30DerPapstah. k
19:12:59moosXavierGr: the current GB mapping is one of the points that made me still using my iaudio daily
19:13:33moosthe other main point is the insuficent HD (40 GB for now)
19:13:37XavierGrwell yes it can be confusing (not so much from keeping me from using it though)

20:20:35 Join bluey- [0] (
20:20:38bluebrotherand as I don't have any color targets ...
20:20:40CassandraLlorean: BTW, why is boxes unsuitable as a default theme - does everyone hate it, or is it just that it's a bit out of date?
20:21:02Cassandra(I don't have an axe to grind - I just wonder if it's worth fixing properly or not.)
20:21:09LloreanCassandra: It wasn't really discussed, because it was out of date / not all targets.
20:21:29LloreanI personally rather liked Boxes, but the only ones discussed were ROCKBoxed and iAmp, if I recall, because they had versions for all screens.
20:22:10bluebrotherI also guess most people will prefer a proportional font
20:22:31LloreanWell Boxes works with any 8-high font, right?

20:38:37bluebrotherbenanne, update the bootloader using ipodpatcher and unzipping a current build should be sufficient
20:38:37n1sbenanne: you would also have to update the bootloader
20:38:53benanneokay, I'll see where that gets me, thanks :)
20:38:54DerPapstyou have to install a newer bootloader and replace .rockbox

21:08:53bluebrotheryou mean the true type fonts that are available on windows
21:08:54benannenow I need to reinstall the skin
21:09:05webguest01bluebrother: yes
21:09:17Galoisa bleeding edge system is essential for a developer, especially a developer who is in it for the learning
21:09:20bluebrotherthere's a converter in the forums, just search for it. But it will most likely not look good because of interpolation
21:09:36bluebrotherRockbox uses bitmap fonts while ttf is a vector format
21:09:42webguest01then where do i get the fonts from rockbox?
21:09:56bluebrotheryou installed the fonts package, did you?
21:10:24pearldiveri see naked markun
21:10:24bluebrotheroh, shirt switching time?
21:10:42markunyes, baby blue is so pase
21:11:21webguest01yes i have installed the fonts package
21:11:29a1titudeWhats a bleeding edge system?
21:11:39bluebrothersomething that hurts using ;-)
21:12:06bluebrother"bleeding edge" usually refers to a system with all packages being up-to-date, if not even newer.
21:12:24amiconnRockbox shirt upgrade completed ;)
21:12:29badsheepyid completely disagree
21:12:45badsheepya bleeding edge system means binutils breaks for no reason and you have no idea why for 13 months
21:12:52LinusNwe have bleeding edge shirts
21:13:38Galoistoo much of a bleeding edge is bad even for a learning environment. Gentoo is arguably heading in that direction.
21:13:55GaloisLinux From Scratch is definitely too much of a bleeding edge and for that reason I would not recommend it

21:34:41bluebrotherand for loading IPL using the Rockbox bootloader you need to set it up properly −− it won't work out of the box

23:18:15mpeccoriniprobably a month ago
23:18:43AceNikall im saying is considering to port rockbox on phones, all the more cause there is going to be a time things will combine
23:18:56bluebrotherit was changed earlier. But you can still give it that number, so ...
23:19:01LloreanAceNik: The fact that they're basically computers suggests Rockbox should NOT be ported to them
23:19:02florincopying the mbr from's server to /dev/sdb (or /dev/disk1 for that matter) didn't do it...
23:19:08mpeccorinigot it, got it
23:19:16LloreanAceNik: If they're multi-purpose computers, they don't need an operating system, they need an application.
23:19:18florinso the conversion was a bit tricky
23:19:27B4gderAceNik: we port rockbox to everything people do it for
23:19:44florini dd'ed the original apple firmware from the original macpod to /tmp/firmware
23:19:47mpeccoriniAceNik: sure, why not?
23:20:01florinthen started "fdisk /dev/sdb -b 2048"
23:20:09florinand created windows partitions
23:20:28AceNikbut the reason i say to port it as a operating system is because its a better thing as one , which will not serve justice to it as an application obviously
23:20:29intgrAceNik: People on computers want an *application* for listening to music, not replace their operating system.
23:20:32DerPapstmaybe someone want to add the names?

23:21:53LloreanAceNik: Rockbox would be a TERRIBLE operating system for a multi-purpose device. It wasn't designed as one.
23:21:55intgrAceNik: Rockbox is a simplistic RTOS, a single application can easily take down the whole device; you don't want that on a computer.
23:21:56bluebrotherDerPapst, too bad petur is missing
23:22:02florinbut the ipodpatcher is not :-(
23:22:17DerPapstflorin: what is the exact mkdos command?

23:23:37florinyes, i assume there's where the problam lies: i'm pretty sure that my partition layout differs from that of a winpod.
23:23:42florin(in partition sizes etc).
23:23:53Lloreanflorin: You need to use the MBRs from our site, or it won't work.
23:24:10LloreanAceNik: There's just no point in doing that. It's basically saying "A bunch of extra work should be done for no real benefity."
23:24:23LloreanYou'd have to write drivers for all the hardware, etc, instead of just having an application.
23:24:26florinok, i'll try... i ran into problems with that (linux wouldn't recognize the partition sizes correcly...)

23:24:40florinbut i can give it another try with you guys around :-)
23:24:51LloreanYeah, there was something wrong with the file.
23:24:53florinand the firmware partition was too small.
23:25:00LloreanUnfortunately, I'm not sure we've got a good one yet, though

23:25:24florin(or at least the dd'ed file)
23:25:28AceNik Llorean:agreed, given up , but there is a point somewhere if rockbox needs expanding anytime with popularity & mass of people usin it , it has to be this kind of a device
23:25:37DerPapstthats right so far :P
23:25:43LloreanAceNik: No, it doesn't have to be to that sort of device, at all.
23:25:49LloreanIt *can* be
23:25:59florinso what now? download a new mbr and try it again? from linux?
23:26:07AceNik Llorean: i just feel since rockbox has come this far , it should expand with either its own device or something like that
23:26:13LloreanThen do it.

23:27:25florindid you mean the original file, or my download?

23:28:01LloreanNow, it's possible to install Rockbox without the user of the iPodPatcher tool at all.
23:28:07LloreanIt's just a lot less fun.
23:28:25DerPapstflorin: you can ask on the forums if anyone with a 5.5G 30GB can give you their mbr
23:28:38LloreanDerPapst: Or better yet, ask them to upload it to the wiki page.
23:28:45florinyes, i'll do that...
23:28:54florinbut what about that ipodpatcher-less install?
23:28:54DerPapstLlorean: yepp.
23:28:57AceNik Llorean:so what do you use for ipods now , like you need patcher for the bootloader right?
23:29:02bluebrotheroh, webcam broken? :'-(
23:29:03florini'm keen :-)

23:30:36DerPapstnice :)
23:30:44***Alert Mode OFF
23:30:56Lloreanflorin: First you need a raw .bin of the bootloader, rather than a .ipod. I'm not sure how to do that, I know it's converted to .ipod during the compile process so I assume you can just remove that step, I'm not sure if it's reversible (as an alternative)
23:31:04pixelmabluebrother: wrong...
23:31:09bluebrotherpicture again :)

23:31:29bluebrotherpixelma, what's wrong?
23:31:32Lloreanflorin: Then using the "Linux Users" directions from here (horribly outdated, but I think they *might* still work) you might be able to figure out what to do
23:31:42pixelmathat guy you called Zagor is petur - Zagor is missing on the pic
23:32:00LloreanAceNik: The old process had you use dd to extract the firmware partition, the ipod_fw tool to extract the firmware and merge it with the bootloader, then dd to write it back
23:32:05DerPapstLlorean: they don't work for 5.5G iPods.
23:32:08bluebrotherbut wasn't that Zagor's place?
23:32:15LloreanDerPapst: At all?
23:32:23CtcpIgnored 1 channel CTCP requests in 0 seconds at the last flood
23:32:23*petur feels so last year with the blue shirt
23:32:30DerPapstipod_fw creates a corrupt image
23:32:42Lloreanflorin: Ignore me.
23:32:46DerPapsthe can try out scrable though
23:32:57B4gderno more "half" webcam pics now
23:33:09bluebrotherpixelma, better now?
23:33:10LloreanJust DD over a bootloader, no merged firmware? Break dual boot, but you'd at least have Rockbox
23:33:19DerPapstbut that will "delete" the original fw
23:33:25florinLlorean: ignore you?
23:33:27bluebrothersorry petur :o
23:33:40Lloreanflorin: My instructions wouldn't have worked apparently, the ipod_fw tool isn't compatible with 5.5G
23:34:17AceNikbye guys have fun
23:34:18florinso no rockbox for me yet, right?
23:34:22LloreanI'm thinking

23:34:43DerPapstflorin: you can replace the original os with rockbox
23:34:54florinok with me...
23:35:11Domonokywoudnt it be possible to use the "wrong" mbr and recreate the Fat32 partition ?
23:35:35Domonokythen ipodpatcher should accept it..
23:35:38DerPapstyou'll have to build the scramble tool. it's in SVN
23:35:39 Quit Alberio ("ChatZilla [Firefox]")
23:35:52LloreanAnother idea is to just extract your current MBR, add in the "magic" that iPodPatcher looks for, and write it back.
23:35:57DerPapstDomonoky: might be worth a try.
23:35:58Sivart0you can completely remove the apple OS? OO_O
23:36:00*Llorean doesn't know what that magic is.
23:36:03LloreanSivart0: Yes
23:36:11LloreanMakes booting a bit faster, too.
23:36:22Domonokyor comment the check in ipodpatcher an recompile it :-)
23:36:22florinok, how?
23:36:23*Sivart0 drools
23:36:29LloreanDomonoky: That would work as well.
23:36:35florinwhere's the souce?
23:36:36LloreanI've petitioned to give iPodPatcher a −−force option
23:36:36DerPapstflorin: try out the mbr from the 80GB 5.5G iPod
23:36:43DerPapstand fix it in fdisk then
23:36:50LloreanDerPapst: That'd have an oversized firmware partition
23:36:53Llorean120mb instead of 80mb
23:36:56DerPapsti know
23:36:59LloreanExtra room for the hibernation image.
23:37:00bluebrotherSivart0, ipodpatcher -wf rockbox.ipod
23:37:32LloreanSivart0: Be aware you should ipodpatcher -rf apple_os.ipod and keep a backup of that somewhere in case you ever want to restore it.
23:38:00bluebrotheryou can even run apple_os from that file afterwars iiuc
23:38:03Lloreanbluebrother: I prefer to -wf bootloader.ipod personally. Makes the boot take slightly longer, but it means not having to -wf every Rockbox update.
23:38:06Domonokythe source for ipodpatcher is in SVN in rbutil/ipodpatcher, if you can compile its probaly the easyest..
23:38:07toffe82so what is the first beer you drink ?
23:38:20bluebrotherLlorean, I did it that way too :)
23:38:23*DerPapst points Llorean to:
23:38:30florinahm... wait, i'm starting to lose you guys...
23:38:37DerPapstso he dosn't have to make a backup :P

23:41:24florinnow i do have a working ipod, with original firmware. iknow how to re-create that from scrach (done like 10 times today :-)
23:41:24DerPapstmaybe ipodpatcher is still happy then
23:41:36bluebrotherthanks, just noticed it. But the upcoming beer isn't announced ;-)
23:41:58bluebrotheror is that planned for tomorrow?
23:41:59florinmy options are (1) patch ipodpatcher and recompile
23:42:05florin(2) patch my "working" MBR
23:42:11florinwith the rockbox-magic
23:42:19DerPapsti would choose (2) :P
23:42:21florinor (3) install rockbox as the only os
23:42:28bluebrotherpetur, :D
23:42:41Lloreanor (4) come up with a solution cleverer than those we've suggested. ;)
23:43:00florini think (2) sounds like the most sane sollution.
23:43:07Domonoky5) wait for someone elses MBR..
23:43:13LloreanI think (1) is actually the most sane.
23:43:14a1titudeI know I'm asking for my head to be bitten off here, but is the 80GB ipod going to be looked at at the Devcon?
23:43:16florinmaking a dd of the MBR, and then?
23:43:16B4gder(5) wait until it fixes itself
23:43:31DerPapst^would be 6
23:43:31LloreanSince it probably just involves commenting out a check or two.
23:43:43florin(7) wave a dead mouse over the 'pod?
23:43:49LloreanI'm not sure what (2) needs to be done.
23:43:59 Quit gotthardt ("ChatZilla [Firefox]")
23:44:00DerPapstwell. this time ignore me and do waht Llorean said ;)
23:44:01LloreanI have no idea what iPodPatcher is looking for that yours isn't giving it.
23:44:07florindoes anybody has a URL to the source of ipodpatcher?
23:44:16florini could figure out what it does...
23:44:17DerPapstit's in svn
23:44:32LloreanAnd you'd probably have to open up iPodPatcher and ask it what it's looking for, and once you're there you may as well just comment out the look rather than taking that information and hacking up an MBR with it :)
