00:18:41bluebrotherthis enters emergency disk mode. To leave that mode you need to reset the Ipod again.
00:18:48webguest47just to be sure I have a video Ipod
00:19:08SnookieOkay, now it has started, and it sez "Disk mode" at the top, I'm right where im supposed to be now? =)

00:19:42SnookieNope, it just dissapears, it appeared as "Removable Disk", but then i clicked it and it was gone.

00:20:36SnookieI've tried to (enable disk use) but i get an error from iTunes, that it cant be synched.
00:21:06bluebrotherhmm. You might want to try to shutdown all Itunes related tasks using the task manager ...
00:21:21SnookieBut it starts when i plug my iPod in.

00:26:34webguest47<bluebrother> well that was much eaiser thank you. Do you have a location for operating instructions?
00:26:42markunfreebsd gave me 1.5.2
00:26:57Snookiejzilla: Yes, just create for example a folder called music, then put your music in it.
00:27:11Snookiejzilla: Then you can browse the music in your rockbox GUI
00:27:11webguest47thank you VERRRY much

00:37:42DerPapstah ok. wasn't sure though :P
00:37:48bluebrotherNico_P: as a mirror? I.e. the main system will still be svn?
00:38:13bluebrotherwould be kinda nice for getting a bit knowledge of git ;-)
00:38:32Nico_Pwe didn' discuss it in detail but I was thinking of having a mirror of ths SVN repo and hosting dev repos
00:39:20bluebrothernice. I'm still not convinced that a move to git would be beneficial, but a mirror could help playing with it ;-)
00:39:46bluebrotherfor some reason git-svn wants me to checkout git-svn all time instead of master
00:40:00bluebrotherwith master being the state when I initially ran git-svn :o
00:41:14Nico_PI use git svn rebase to update
00:41:52Nico_Pyou'd probably rebase the master and then pull from the master to update your local branches

01:38:26Nico_POlafG: you'll want regular. sim is a simulator running on a computer and boot is the bootloader, which you only install once

01:41:27OlafGIt does work on a mac, right?
01:42:04Soapif we are talking about iPods, your iPod needs to be formatted FAT32, not HFS+, otherwise Mac users should have no particular issue.
01:42:34OlafGGah, I dont want to re-format my iPod
01:43:01mud-rbit's not really that hard if you have space to backup your current files
01:45:27OlafGHmm, I am to tired to do it tonight, thats for sure
01:45:28*stripwax is amazed people really use HFS
01:45:43mud-rbi threw my sgfbox (Go game recorder/viewer) plugin on the tracker if anyone wants to check it out, it's very very very rough though and probably only usable on e200:
01:45:45OlafGHFS is better than FAT....
01:45:59mud-rbanything is better than FAT, but FAT is really easy
01:46:13OlafGThats true
01:46:13scorcheFAT is supported everywhere
01:46:25mud-rbHFS from what i understand is not all that great, and almost nobody uses it
01:46:40scorchewell, mac users do because they dont know any better
01:46:44OlafGBut I dont see HFS a problem if you work with macs and dont have to involve your self with windows-shit
01:47:01OlafGI also like ZFS...
01:47:26OlafGBut, FAT, bleh
01:47:28mud-rbZFS does sound interesting, but something tells me rockbox isn't going to support it </sarcasm>
01:47:31stripwaxdoes linux support hfs? assume it does, but ..
01:47:45OlafGI think so
01:47:53mud-rbi know there's code in there for it, i have no idea how well it works

01:54:29SoapFAT is #1 if your goal is compatibility. A DAP has no higher goal, and FAT is more than good enough for everything else a DAP needs out of a filesystem. Complaining about FAT on your iPod is like driving a Hummer to the grocery store. Sure the Hummer can carry more stuff faster than your Civic, but do you need that to grocery shop? No.

05:37:05mud-rbbut even then, you're going to run into problems with like plugins that assume certain key configurations

10:27:07OlafGEh, I didnt like that UI
10:27:20mud-rbkeep in mind it's very configurable, if you're trying to decide if you want to install it or something. i think a lot of the screenshots are of the default theme/font which isn't great
10:28:03OlafGI can still watch video on it, right?
10:28:40mud-rbhaven't tried it myself but i gather that there is some sort of video support
10:28:43GodEatervideo watching is not recommended in Rockbox on the iPod Video

10:31:27GodEaternot supported
10:31:41GodEaterwe have unofficial builds which allow the use of coverart, but not from the iTunesDB
10:32:01GodEateruse of an unofficial build means you get no support here though - only from the person whose build you end up using

11:35:59Shinei want just to open a whole folder to play, is it possible?
11:36:18markunyou can go to the file settings and set "View files" to "All"
11:36:27markunthen you should also see the music folder

11:55:17mud-rbi'm not even going to bother for any of the archos..the screens are just too small for 19x19, and without that there's really not much point
11:55:30markunmud-rb: will you use some pretty bitmaps?
11:56:04mud-rbmarkun: i'm just using simple colors right now...bitmaps would probably be nice, but it's hard to get much detail in such small stones :(
11:56:32markunyes, 19x19 on such a small board..
11:56:37markuneh, screen

12:39:23markunok :)
12:39:37Shinein doom addons ive got 1 file doom2.wad
12:39:57Shineit doesnt work. amy idea why?
12:40:08DerPapsti have a small coding question. Is there any way i can have something like a button timer? So that i can say the button has at least to be pressed 1 second before a event is fired but the event should only fired once after the button is released. Afaik there are BUTTON_REPEAT and BUTTON_REL but i know i can't combine them. So is there any other way to do such a thing?
12:40:34markunShine: if you have just 1 file you can find the answer to your problem here:
12:41:23mud-rbDerPapst: i think you get the BUTTON_REPEAT things before the BUTTON_REL in that case, so just set a flag on BUTTON_REPEAT and then test for it on BUTTON_REL?
12:42:27Shinesp i need the same files in addon dir?
12:43:21markunShine: which part of the wiki page do you mean? If it's unclear I can update it.
12:44:15DerPapstmud-rb: hmm.. sounds good but honestly i have no idea how to do that. :P I guess i would have to to that in the plugin loop?
12:44:48Shinedoom works for me but doom2 doesnt
12:45:02mud-rbyeah, i haven't tested this but i can throw an example in a pastebin if you like. do you really want that functionality though? i can't think of a real use for it, honestly
12:45:35markunShine: strange, it's in the list of supported wads. Do you get an error?

12:47:35markunhi thommy
12:47:35Shinei try to run it but it quits doom plugin
12:48:19DerPapstmud-rb: would be nice :) i don't want a user to accidently reset a level because s/he it the wrong button. so i wanted to make sure the button has to be pressed a certain time before i reset the level. BUTTOM_REPEAT works for that but once it fires the event you are resetting the level about 2 times or more per second. which isn't nice.
12:48:35markunShine: sorry, don't know what's wrong with it
12:48:57thommydoes anyone has experiences with the amarok Rockbox support?
12:49:00Shinei enter doom->addons->doom2 right?

12:52:27mud-rbugh DerPapst: the way i'm thinking of is kind of going to be ugly
12:52:29B4gderbut what about this mentioned plugin
12:52:37mud-rbbut, i'll still write it up, can decide
12:52:53B4gderI found this:
12:52:59DerPapstmud-rb: heh ok :)
12:53:06pixelmaDerPapst: I don't understand your button repeat problem though... there are quite a few places where rockbox distinguishes between a short and a long button press
12:53:10thommy4th point
12:53:43B4gderthommy: yes I can see it _mentioned_ but there's no info about it
12:53:43mud-rbhe wants it to distinguish and /also/ for it only to fire once the button is released
12:54:41B4gderbut I find lots of people asking the same question...
12:55:06B4gder... with nobody answering them
12:55:15thommyyes i know
12:55:23markundoes Amarok have a IRC channel?
12:55:23pixelmasure it is possible - DerPapst look at the BUTTON_PRE definitions... (I think that's where your problem lies ;) )
12:55:51mud-rboh is there an actual way to do this?
12:55:55B4gder#amarok here on freenode
12:56:18mud-rb here is the gross hack i had in mind. the biggest grossness is you need to set fire_it = false in every other button case
12:56:29DerPapstpixelma: that plugin doesn't have BUTTON_PRE definitions yet.
12:56:32mud-rberr...wait, i have no idea
12:56:46pixelmaDerPapst: you just set them...
12:57:03thommyi already ask there but no solution
12:57:39DerPapstmud-rb: yeah that is similat of what i thought too ;)
12:58:06mud-rbokay, yeah it should work, with some tweaking..and i think i'm wrong about having to set the flag false in ever case, just set it false if it hits...maybe
12:58:26mud-rbbut it's still gross...haha, if there's an actual way, do that

13:03:14DerPapsthmm... it's a bit of a similar way what mud-rb has done.
13:03:16pixelmaand there are different button combos with "menu" as well - it works
13:04:03markunmud-rb: these graphics look quite nice don't you think?
13:04:13DerPapsti think i understand now how i can do that. thank you both :)
13:04:58mud-rbmarkun: hmm, yes they are pretty nice actually
13:05:20mud-rbmarkun: even those are a bit big though, although i think they could survive a little shrinking
13:05:51mud-rbanother problem with bitmaps is that it's going to be difficult to size them for all players, unless i just implement scrolling, but honeslty i don't like the idea of scrolling
13:06:01mud-rbit's pretty important to be able to see the whole board at the same time...
13:06:06markunmud-rb: maybe I can play a bit with The Gimp to make you some nice tiles
13:06:51Shinemarkun: i used a hebrew supported font but i still see gibrish(text files)
13:07:10markunShine: then you probably need to set your default codepage to Hebrew
13:07:28Shineplease explain yourself
13:07:32mud-rbmarkun: sure, if you don't mind that might be helpful
13:08:33mud-rbmarkun: oh! that's a really good idea that program uses to show the last move (lighten the board around it a bit)
13:08:48mud-rbi wonder if i can somehow do that, although it might be tough...
13:09:05markunmud-rb: just make a separate tile for it
13:09:54mud-rbmarkun: yeah...i think one problem with tiles is that currently i'm not set up to use them at all, it's all custom drawn because i wanted to allow any board size and supporting many players is easier this way
13:09:59thommyor ceatinging playlists
13:10:30DerPapstpixelma: the problem is even if i define any BUTTON_PREs the evil plugin loop doesn't make any use of it so they would be unused. So i have to code a handler for them in the loop first to make them work. But i think that is easy.
13:10:53mud-rbmarkun: i think either we're going to have to restrict board sizes to maybe just 19x19, or else tiles are pretty difficult with all of the different screen sizes
13:11:05mud-rb(and even then there's going to have to be a lot of tiles)
13:11:19markunmud-rb: yes, we'll see
13:11:39 Quit daktak ("Lost terminal")
13:11:49markunor maybe restrict the game to 9x9 for screens which are too small?
13:12:48mud-rbyes, that's a possibility, but i'm not sure how useful that actually is...the most popular use case by far and away is going to be 19x19
13:13:10pixelmaDerPapst: sorry - I still don't understand. I used them myself and also defined new ones... they worked "out of the box".
13:13:10Shinemarkun: what codepage?
13:13:14mud-rbi guess we could use tiles if the screen is large enough at the current board size, and fall back on custon drawn
13:13:51pixelmaDerPapst: if you remember Ipod minesweeper... ;)
13:13:52peturmaybe use seamless tiles and draw all other features on top of it?
13:14:06markunShine: under display settings
13:14:08mud-rbseamless tiles?
13:14:44peturpatterns you can put next to each other without seing they are repeated
13:15:10mud-rboh oh, no that wouldn't work...the tiles we're talking about are for like a circular game piece
13:15:19markunpetur: well, if they are tiles you could always see that
13:15:44mud-rbthat would be nice for the game board pattern though for sure
13:16:06peturok, I meant seamless pattern for the background/board and draw the other stuff on top
13:16:19mud-rbah yes, that would be good
13:16:21DerPapstpixelma: e.g. look at the sudoku plugin. (sudoku.c line 1195) there you can see if a button_pre is defined something happens in the gameloop (to be exact nothing happens as desired). but the pligin i'm working on doesn't have something similar in its mainloop so if i make a new button_pre define nothing should actually happen.
13:17:06peturand if you use transparency you can have any graphic you want (round things,...)
13:17:15DerPapstmeaning it would still behave like before.
13:17:20 Part LinusN
13:17:22markunpetur: what's the fenefit of having one background in that case? I was planning to make tiles with everything predrawn
13:17:31markunfor nice alpha tranparency :)
13:18:03markunpetur: I mean what's the benefit of NOT having 1 background
13:18:07peturmarkun: that way you can have less gfx that's player dependant
13:18:10DerPapstmarkun: maybe a algorithm to draw wood as well?
13:18:24mud-rboh god
13:18:35amiconnDerPapst: Of course you also need to check the previous value inf you add a _PRE macro
13:18:53amiconnThe mechanism is actually quite simple
13:18:54markunmud-rb: we should worry about the game and not the graphics :)
13:19:06DerPapstmud-rb: nahh not god but pope ;)

13:21:14mud-rbonce i get these keypads redone you can see how it works so far, it looks fairly good to my eye as long as you don't look at the code, haha
13:21:36DerPapstamiconn: one question... if a plugin uses pluginlib_actions for it's button defines and i think they are not usable at all is it ok to make my own button defines in the plugin for a particular dap and if that dap isn't defined use pluginlib_actions instead?

13:28:19DerPapstdionoea: ah ok... but introducing a complete new buttonset for every plugin where i don't like the defines that uses this lib is a bit overkill imo
13:28:27 Quit The-Compiler (Remote closed the connection)
13:28:41amiconnDerPapst: I don't know. pluginlib_actions is of almost no use imho. Requirements of the various plugins are too different from each other to make a generic actions approach work nicely
13:28:57pixelmaI still think that button actions for plugins (specifically games) don't make sense because the control scheme can be so different and the keypads need different solutions for each. If you start defining all these extra cases in the pluginlib would just be moving the defines from the plugin to the lib - less transparency...
13:29:00mud-rbamiconn: yeah that was my conclusion as well
13:29:24DerPapstamiconn: this is waht i thought too. that's why i wanted to make my onw ones.
13:30:01dionoeacan't you code your own actions per plugin but still use the action code in the game's loop ?
13:30:10DerPapsts/amiconn/amiconn, pixelma:
13:31:02mud-rbdionoea: if i understand you correctly then it's basically the same as the old way, right? although in my opinion it's somewhat less clear
13:31:07pixelmadionoea: what would be the use of it in an "outsourced" lib?
13:31:12DerPapstdionoea: right now i have my own defines if the plugin is built for an iPod but if not i still use this plugin_lib
13:32:40amiconndionoea: You could make your own actions list. But that's less clear than processing button presses the old way imo
13:32:51dionoeait might help preventing the use of lots of ifdef SOMEBUTTON in the keyboard handling switch. (see the solitaire button loop for an example of how ugly that looks)
13:33:10 Quit maffe (Remote closed the connection)
13:33:42mud-rbdionoea: i think the best solution is the #if CONFIG_KEYPAD == BLAH <whole bunch of mapping defines ... approach. i think the solitare only looks bad because it avoids that
13:34:17dionoeano, it doesn't
13:34:37mud-rboh, then why does it look horrible? i managed to get away without any hairiness in my actual loop
13:35:11dionoeabecause you have so many possible actions/shortcut actions that some targets don't have enough buttons to handle them with simple defines
13:35:33dionoeaand AFAIK, those could be simplified using the action code

14:01:01ShineSo how do i configure the settings of the text editor in sansa
14:01:31markunShine: if there is no codepage settings I guess it's not possible
14:02:24pixelmaShine: when in the text viewer press "select" (the center button) - ooh I thought you meant the text viewer not the text editor...
14:02:53Shinealso the text viewr
14:02:56markundoes the text editor support UTF-8?
14:03:17Shinei dont know
14:03:20pixelmayes, but you have to set it seperately
14:03:44Shineso how i set the text viewer
14:04:30pixelmaShine: view the .txt - press select, choose "encoding" which is the first option - select utf-8

14:10:22Gabrilcan anyone explain why my rockbox ( ipod video 80 gig ) shows up twice in my windows file explorer? or how i can disable this? maybe i'm just searching with the wrong keywords...
14:11:01mud-rbdoes it have two partitions on it or something?
14:11:29Gabrilwell, they were there by default - and - the two rockboxes i see in windows have the same content

14:12:02mud-rbi can think of no way that rockbox would cause that...i'd guess it's a windows problem somehow
14:12:43GodEatervery definitely - it's nothing to do with rockbox at all
14:13:20mud-rbactually i can think of no way that i would make windows do that either, but yeah it's definitely not rockbox
14:13:28Gabrilok, so i just have to play a little bit with the partitions
14:13:34GodEaterNico_P: have you seen qgit yet ?
14:13:47GodEaterGabril: I don't think it's anything to do with the partitions either - leave them alone
14:14:08Gabrilthere is a small ( 80 mb )-partition at the beginning. don't know if it's something like /boot so i did not touch them
14:14:33GodEaterGabril: that's the firmware paritition. Leave it alone.
14:14:45mud-rbif his partition table is fubar'd in some sort of magical way could windows see it as two disks with the same stuff?
14:14:51Nico_PGodEater: but the package from the ubuntu repos refuses to install with the git packages I have, so I just use gitk
14:14:51ShineIs there a way to watch wmv\avi movies?

15:16:09PaulJamof course i wouldn't mind if someone else would investigate this. (backing up 20 GB and putting it later back on the player always takes a long time).

15:16:19amiconnHowever, using a / in a filename should not cause fs corruption
15:16:56amiconnIt should instead just place the file with the name after the / in the sub-dir with the name before the / if it exists
15:17:04amiconnOtherwise it should fail
15:17:59GodEaterour fat driver uses both / and \ as directory seperators ?

15:24:20cropamiconn: I'd disagree. If in the rename operation you specify a name with a "/" it should fail. Since what you specify is semantically a name, not a path

15:25:08peturas in, you're requesting a move, not a rename
15:25:10cropOr is this a path? Then you're right
15:26:40croppetur: seen that way: yes, it should be moved to a subdir. But then a question arises: if the subdir doesn't exist, should it be created?
15:27:25peturshould we support moving through a rename request?
15:28:24cropI'm not quite sure whether it's move or rename. I think we should name the operation according to what it really does.
15:29:11cropIIRC it's "rename" now, so I wouldn't expect "/" to be accepted.
15:29:35cropBut to change the menu entry name is easier than modify the func :-)
15:31:45 Quit Zlasher ()
15:31:59PaulJamin my opinion it shouldn't be possible to move via the rename finction. since you can always move the file/folder by using the cut/paste functions (even though this currently can cause filesystem errors too)
15:33:47amiconncrop: I'm not saying it's desired behaviour, just what svn does atm
15:34:25cropPaulJam: but it should be possible via "move" So just rename the entry ;-)
15:34:45cropamiconn: this ^^ could also be for you :-)
15:35:05cropBut if the intended semantics is "rename", the func should be corrected
15:36:16B4gderimho, rename should be able to move files
15:37:55amiconnB4gder: Why?
15:38:27B4gderbecause that's what rename implies to me
15:39:31amiconnTo me it doesn't... and moving via cut+paste is easier to use than typing in a path with the vkeyboard
15:39:36B4gder"rename - change the name or location of a file"
15:39:46B4gder(from man 2 rename)
15:39:55cropHmm... You've been using UNIX too long :-) For me, "rename" means rename, and "move" menas move, and that also includes rename
15:40:16B4gderI admit to be a unix head but I believe even windows' rename can move files
15:40:27*petur tries
15:41:09cropIt depends on what's considered to constitute a file name: the whole path or just the last segment.
15:41:44cropI think for most people it's just the last segment.
15:41:59peturwindows rename doesn't
15:42:33peturfrom 'help ren': Note that you cannot specify a new drive or path for your destination file.

16:40:59PaulJamhaha, i did some more experimenting with the rename function and realized, that the really stupid thing i tied previously wasn't to try to move a dir by renaming (which actually works the way amiconn described) but i tried to move the dir inside itself (renaming "test" to "test/test2").

16:49:39GodEaterNico_P: what is it exactly you want Bagder to set up ? A git repo that tracks the svn one automatically ?
16:49:49GodEaterOr just a git repo for you that's held on the rockbox servers ?
16:50:00Nico_Pboth actually
16:50:18GodEaterwell the latter one is fairly easy
16:50:22GodEaterI'm just doing an experimental push to one now
16:50:28GodEaterlooks to be pretty simple
16:50:34GodEaterI'm not quite sure how to achieve the first one yet
16:50:38GodEaterstill reading :)
16:51:40Nico_Pit could be done with a post-commit hook of the svn repo
16:53:12GodEateryep - but you'd need an svn expert for that
16:53:19GodEater<−− not an svn expert
16:53:27Nico_Pit's quite simple actually
16:53:33GodEatergood - you can do it then :)
16:53:39Nico_PBagder is an svn expert
16:54:03GodEaterI guess it'd simple run a git-svn rebase after each commit
16:54:23GodEaterare you hoping to be able to commit to the git repo and have it go into svn as well ?
16:54:48*GodEater thinks this would be asking for trouble
16:54:58Nico_Pa bit
16:55:16GodEaterok - baby steps then
16:55:31Nico_PI rather see it as a way to easily clone the rockbox official repo
16:56:33Nico_Pthe easiest way to do it is probably to disable pushing to it
16:57:13GodEaterwhich would be easy
16:57:18GodEaterjust deny any sort of ssh access to it
16:57:27GodEaterand make pulling from it use http
16:57:42Nico_Pyes, so it would basically be read only for anyone but the rockbox host
16:57:50GodEatereasy enough to set up
16:58:16Nico_Pthen people could get the source as a git repo, work on it and then publish their own repos
17:00:38Nico_Phopefully that way it could promote collaboration on big features

17:01:19Nico_PI don't think there needs to be an actual switch from svn to git, having both doesn't really seem problematic
17:01:23*GodEater is hoping this too
17:02:09GodEaterin fact - it avoids us having to write hooks for git too to check for access
17:02:16GodEaterwe stick to the current svn access list
17:06:44Nico_PGodEater: do you know if it is possible to publish a git-svn repo ?
17:07:01GodEaterI'm just doing that now to find out :)
17:07:07Nico_Pso that people who clone it can easily commit to the svn repo through the git repo
17:07:20GodEaterah I see what you mean
17:07:28Nico_Pthat was your question earlier, wasn't it ?
17:07:36GodEaterthat'll be harder for me to test - I have no svn to push to test it

17:54:55kn11pxbut before doing it myself i ask if someone else done it before
17:55:02Lloreankn11px: If you plan to disable *all* plugins and remove the plugin buffer you could recover 512kb of RAM, used for buffering audio. Whether this offers an improvement on battery life, or actually hurts it, depends on your play style.
17:55:28markunno, it hasn't been done
17:55:47LloreanThe same holds true with any other code you choose to cut out: Reducing the binary size by removing the equalizer or any other aspect of Rockbox increases the audio buffer, though by nearly trivial amounts comparatively.
17:55:59PaulJamisn't the pluginbuffer also needed by some of the core features? like playlist viewer and database committing?
17:56:00kn11pxi dont even need id3 tag support

18:08:09Nico_PI think it's a good start... trying to hack MoB into the current playback.c would be a bad idea
18:08:44pondlifeThat's assuming it's a viable idea ;)
18:09:05LloreanWell, it's probably more viable than the current playback.c as he said. ;)
18:09:05Nico_Pinstead I'm first going to separate the buffering from it into buffering.c and most probably implement the buffering API proposal

18:09:35pondlifeIt was just a suggestion, I expect the API will need revising to be workable.
18:09:50pondlifeGo Nico_P!
18:09:56Nico_PI have a very basic buffering.h you might want to see
18:10:13pondlifeI wish I had time... but I really don't.
18:10:36Nico_Ppondlife: trust me it's very basic :)
18:10:42*pondlife would work out why the sim keeps segfaulting if he had time
18:11:28pondlifeYep, that's basic!
18:11:53pondlifeI guess the reading stuff comes later? And audio_reset_buffer will be renamed..?
18:12:24Nico_Pthe two function are because I started moving some code out of playback.c
18:12:40pondlifeI like the idea of data_type - hadn't considered that.
18:12:43Nico_Pthe main thing I wanted to show is the memory_handle struct
18:13:05pondlifeDo we need the path in there?
18:13:10Nico_PI want to aim for a generic way of storing almost anything in memory and have it easily accessible
18:13:27pondlifeWouldn't a file handle be as usable, and smaller?
18:13:38Nico_Pnot sure about the path but it might be needed to determine if a particular file is in the buffer or not
18:13:48NJoinjoa [0] (n=joe@
18:13:55Nico_Pto avoid having two copies of it
18:14:08pondlifeYep, that is a problem with the current implementation.
18:15:41Nico_Pthe thing is I don't really know whether to start with a standalone program simulating the file buffer or directly tie everything with the rockbox code
18:16:18pondlifeI would work on the rockbox code - you need to be able to migrate over as slowly as possible anyway.
18:16:42Nico_Pwhat do you mean ?
18:17:11Lloreanpondlife: I was thinking the opposite.
18:17:51pondlifeThere will certainly be a big bang at one point (when the playback code is updated to use buffering), but quite a lot of testing could be performed before that point.
18:18:14LloreanGet the buffering code working as a standalone, to work out as many bugs and kinks as possible. Integration can still be slow, but that way the actual functionality can be the focus of the work, rather than battling with any other things that get in the way.
18:18:18Nico_Pyes, that's why I was thinking maybe a standalone app could be nice
18:18:44pondlifeHowabout a plugin?
18:19:49Nico_PI don't see how a plugin is better than a standalone app
18:20:03Nico_Pthe advantage of standalone is that you don't need the player to test it
18:20:14LloreanOr even a sometimes inconsistent simulator. ;)
18:20:47pondlifeAn important part of testing is going to be how multiple threads access the API... i.e. buffering during reading.
18:21:01pondlifeA standalone app would be fine, if you think it needed.
18:21:49pondlifeThe current buffering bugs smell like race conditions, so make sure you simulate that ;)
18:22:34Nico_PI'll try... the problem might be to simulate accurately rockbox's behaviour
18:23:12pondlifeEven the sim doesn't do that
18:23:54Nico_Pthat's because it's an UIsimulator ;)
18:24:11Nico_Pmaybe I could get the rockbox kernel to compile on a computer and use it in a standalone app
18:24:37Nico_Por maybe this is a completely foolish ide
18:28:26LloreanI guess the question ends up being, would it be better to get the basic framework worked out, then adapt it to any parts of Rockbox's behaviour not anticipated, or simply build it around Rockbox's behaviour in the first place?

22:08:03madmauricebut i lets the sound play slower than the picture when looking a video first only a little bit than when looking for example 5 minutes there is a difference of 20 seconds
22:08:19madmauriceits not a firmware error
22:08:27LloreanWhy do you believe it isn't?
22:08:58 Join XavierGr [0] (n=xavier@
22:09:27LloreanRockbox decodes video entirely in software. Even if it's not a firmware error in the original firmware, if they have hidden some sort of decoder chip that has the problem, Rockbox doesn't use it.
22:09:38madmauriceive read several posts to solve that but i could. in some posts they said sandisk told it is a device error in a little percent of these players
22:09:48amiconnI would think it's a bug in the broadcom chip or firmware
22:09:58Lloreanamiconn: Sansas, no broadcom chp.
22:10:43LloreanThough the PP5024 advertisement pamphlet thingy suggests it has some sort of video decoding capability, but is unclear whether it's software or hardware, the assumption being that it's just fast enough for software decoding.
22:10:44madmauriceit was just a question but if you think it'ill be alright then i trust you ;)
22:11:34Domonokymadmaurice: just try the video funktion of rockbox, then you will know ( but video isnt really ready in rockbox )
22:11:54LloreanDomonoky: It's pretty ready these days, as long as you don't need ff/rw/resume

22:14:05amiconnEverything else doesn't manage standard framerates w/o skipping
22:14:16Lloreanamiconn: It's quite decent on the Nano and Sansa, though the Sansa can't keep up with 30fps fullscreen yet, I believe.
22:14:32LloreanIt's pulled of 29.97 on my Nano fairly reliably at 4:3
22:14:56amiconnOk, then perhaps a few more targets with small colour screens are ok
22:15:17LloreanIt does still need a lot of work, of course
22:15:21madmauriceok... a problem more: the sansapatcher doesn't find my e250 O_o
22:15:27amiconnI deem 25 fps as sufficient btw, living in a PAL region of the worlds
22:15:44LloreanAh, well if 25fps is sufficient the Sansa is fine, I think
22:16:04amiconnThe 10..11fps on video and H300 are far from that :(
22:16:08LloreanWith the Gigabeat, 25fps is all you get anyway, right?
22:16:27markunLlorean: yes

22:19:03dionoeaany idea ?
22:19:25amiconnIt's not rb->memcpy
22:19:44amiconngcc tries to use memcpy directly (that's documented behaviour)
22:19:56dionoeaso i need the special define thingy ?
22:19:57amiconnThat's not possible in plugins.
22:20:05amiconnA define won't help
22:20:25dionoeawell memcpy works fine in other plugins
22:20:42markunamiconn: why not?
22:20:53amiconnYou have 2 options: (1) a wrapper. (2) find the place where gcc tries to use memcpy, and use rb->memcpy() explicitly there
22:21:44amiconnmarkun: A #define only covers explicit usage.
22:21:58dionoeai meant: MEM_FUNCTION_WRAPPERS(rb);
22:22:01dionoeawould that fix it ?
22:22:07dionoea(i can't remember what that does)

23:06:09amiconnBut the sleanup shouldn't take too long, as there's a safety timeout in the shutdown routine (to avoid hanging forever)
23:06:15amiconnYou have a few seconds
23:06:32mud-rbah okay, thanks amiconn...yeah it shouldn't take long at all, i just want to throw some state in a file
23:06:43Lloreanmud-rb: Yes, but try doing that somewhere you can't shutdown by holding power, for example, while it's frozen, and you'll find there's a 15 second hardware shutdown on that button too
23:07:27mud-rbllorean: ah yeah, sorry that's not the case i wanted to handle though, just the normal poweroff...if a user really wants my plugin to die that bad i don't think i care about saving state
23:07:58LloreanYou should always be able to handle a normal poweroff, I think.
23:08:18mud-rbthe way amiconn mentioned, right?
23:08:46LloreanHe would know far better than I.
23:08:53mud-rbah okay :) thanks all
23:09:11mud-rbi'll give that a go...not really a major need for my plugin but i might as well do it i figure, meh...
23:10:09amiconnInteresting... the apple bl sets the PLL to 80MHz
23:10:13amiconn80, not 75
23:10:31LloreanOn your mini?
23:10:40amiconn(but it doesn't enable this clock by default - it connects the cpu core to the idle clock, which is set to 24MHz
23:10:47amiconnmini g1

23:14:31dionoeawhen the counter reaches 0 it reloads. I still need to make it handle negative times correctly (else it'll reload every second which is a bit too much)
23:15:26peturwhen it reaches zero it should print a funny note like 'what? taking so long to build? we need another buildserver!'
23:16:08Bagderdionoea: yeah, quite often it will take longer than estimated so it need to handle that nicely
23:16:44LloreanJust estimate two minutes longer than the usual estimation, then let people be pleasantly surprised.
23:17:11dionoeai'll tell it to wait at least 10 seconds before it can ask a reload

23:21:45roietripHi... why when adding/deleting songs the database ain't updating?
23:23:13dionoeaBagder: if you reload the page it now prints something nice if time is < 0 and tries reloading every 10 secs
23:23:42DerPapstafaik you have to tell rockbox to update the database (not sure tought. never used it much nor read the manual about the datagbase)
23:24:20roietrip10x guys. yes it wasn't auto updating
23:25:11PaulJamroietrip: if you regularly use the database i would suggest you to enable autoupdate and load to ram (and also dircache)

23:28:04webguest41yesterday my ipod crashed-couldnt do anything on it, and left it to dry its batteries because i couldnt reset it, and today i got the normal ipod fw loaded, all the fw files are missing from my ipod
23:28:45webguest41and i cant remember the "pack" i had installed
23:28:51roietripanother Q: when viewing picture, how do I go back to the file explorer?
23:29:10roietripon Sansa
23:29:21dionoeaBagder: since i pretty much don't know perl would you mind putting that in your script ? (only changes needed to the html code are the onload= call in the <body> tag, an include of the js script, and a <span id='countdown_text'> ... </span> where hte text needs to be updated)
23:29:23DerPapstwebguest41: with fw files you mean rockbox?
23:29:37PaulJamroietrip: that should be explained in the manual.
23:30:06webguest41i dont remember the author of the pack i ve downloaded, it included some themes as well
23:30:20DerPapstwebguest41: well just read the manual at pint 2 for installing rockbox. it also has a link to the rockbox version you need.
23:30:48DerPapstwebguest41: ah so you want to use an unofficial built?
23:31:08webguest41yes i liked the included themes :/
23:31:25Bagderdionoea: sure, I'll take care of it. just not immediately since I'm off to bed in a few minutes, but I'll make sure to have a go at it very soon
23:31:26webguest41i found it in the forum in the past, but that was months ago..
23:31:43dionoeaBagder: ok.
23:31:47DerPapstwebguest41: then check out the unofficial builds section in the forums.
23:32:22peturanyway, I can't believe rockbox just vanishes from your ipod
23:32:42webguest41i was surprised as well
23:32:52peturdid you recover it with itunes?
23:32:52DerPapstwebguest41: ah. then i can't help you. there are lots of different unofficial builds and i don't use any of them. so i don't know which you've used.
23:33:53webguest41it was senab i think
23:33:58*petur fails to understand the directory paste code
23:35:24*DerPapst wondery why his firewall always asks him ater a certain amount of time if he allows rockboxui.exe to connect to the insternet.
23:35:34amiconndionoea: Your script needs some checks whether the browser supports the used methods/properties
23:35:38DerPapstwhat piece of spyware is in rockbox?!

23:35:46amiconnRunning into js errors isn't nice
23:35:46dionoeaamiconn: doesn't work in IE ?
23:35:57amiconnIt works in IE5 and up
23:36:07dionoeaso what doesn't it work with ?
23:36:26DerPapstamiconn: you have still IE4 on your pc to test that? :D
23:36:39amiconnIt's not a matter of where it works or not, it's just a question of clean js coding
23:36:56amiconnDerPapst: I even have IE3 just in case...
23:37:06DerPapst.... o.O
23:37:09amiconnI have IE3, 4, 5, 5.5, 6 and 7
23:37:19amiconnANd numerous other browsers
23:37:56*DerPapst is speechless
23:38:41dionoeaamiconn: what js error do you get ?
23:39:28amiconnThe object doesn't support this property / method (that's my own translation)
23:39:34dionoeawhich line ?
23:39:45amiconnline 6, char 5
23:40:39DerPapstamiconn: already installed safari?
23:40:55dionoeahum, quirksmode doesn't even mention IE 4 :/
23:40:57amiconnAfaik that's mac only
23:41:07LloreanThere was a windows release recently
23:41:14amiconndionoea: IE4 doesn't support the dom this way
23:41:18DerPapstamiconn: not anymore
23:41:25amiconnAh ok
23:41:35amiconnSafari is KHTML based iirc
23:41:46DerPapstamiconn: last WWDC they introduces safari for windows. about 1 or 2 weeks ago.
23:42:11Bagderand in two hours there were a bazillion flaws published...
23:42:27*DerPapst 's typos are getting worse than JdGordon's
23:43:10*amiconn has 6 browsers (plus the mentioned IE versions) on his windows PC and 3 on his Amiga for testing web pages
23:43:38amiconnAnd sometimes I also test on knoqueror, but I don't have that installed here
23:43:38DerPapstthat's a lot.
23:43:38dionoeaamiconn: can you try it again in IE4 please ?
23:44:12DerPapsti only know maybe 5 ;)
23:44:28amiconnNow it breaks in line 8
23:44:44amiconnDerPapst: I even know more browsers than I have installed
23:44:54amiconnI left out Mosaic, Lynx, ...
23:45:15DerPapsts/5/6 i just remebered lynx :P
23:45:26dionoeaamiconn: and now ?
23:45:29DerPapstMosaic.. never heared of it
23:45:40dionoeafirst browser ever
23:46:23DerPapsti know IE, mozilla, opera, konqueror, lynx, ummm forgot the 6th one.
23:46:32webguest41it looks after reinstalling the bootloader, i got rockbox working fine again
23:46:33dionoealinks, w3m ?
23:46:37amiconndionoea: works :)
23:46:41dionoeacool :)
23:46:49dionoeaNow we need to test the reload

23:47:14dionoeacan you reload the page so it updates the target time ?
23:48:15amiconn"Builds should have been done..."
23:48:26dionoeaand is it reloading every 10 sec ?
23:48:30amiconnAnd it seems to reload (flickers)
23:48:35dionoeagreat :)
23:48:46dionoeaso the only IE4 rockbox user can now check the build table!
23:49:00dionoeawell, will be able to when it's updated

23:54:17amiconnReference to undefined variable: No such variable 'countdown_refresh'
23:54:49dionoeain the onload call ?
23:55:39amiconnIt just shows this js error when loading or reloading the page
