00:30:22linuxstbsaratoga: Regarding your WMA commit - the asf parser (apps/metadata/asf.c) should reject the streams, rather than the codec. Although it doesn't seem like it does....

00:39:11saratogalinuxstb: can you actually determine the WMA version number in the parser?
00:39:23saratogai assumed the codec had to do that
00:39:40linuxstbIt's the parser that reads the info and passes it to the codec.
00:40:05linuxstbThat info is in the header object, not the data packets that the codec is passed.
00:41:01saratogagood to know
00:41:07linuxstbFiles without a wmav1 or wmav2 stream should have been rejected - it's a bug in my code that they weren't.

00:43:14adrifthey folks, was wondering if you could possibly lend some advice about an issue i'm having with rockbox on my sansa. O
00:43:33adriftI'm dealing with an issue where the audio seems to crash out on me
00:44:01adriftbasically it produces a loud screeching, like a needle on a record player being pulled hard
00:44:38adrifti can get out of it by jumping through a few directories or restarting the system, but its happening with some frequency now
00:44:52 Quit thegeek (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:46:16adrifti started a thread on the issue at's Rockbox forum, and it seems others are dealing with a similar issue with current builds of rockbox
00:47:11linuxstbIs this a new issue?
00:47:33adriftit is
00:47:40chrisjs169i've noticed something similar on my Sansa a few weeks ago when reloading the config file
00:47:45 Join Hilikus [0] (
00:48:10chrisjs169it'd basically go to either a loud static or a loud screeching noise (can't remember atm)
00:48:11adrifti've noticed it in several builds as well.
00:48:28adriftsort of both for me :)
00:48:35Hilikushey guys
00:49:00Hilikuswhat do you recommend to edit audio? i recorder a show with rockbox and now i want to edit the file
00:49:18Lloreanadrift: One person in the thread said it happens in the official firmware
00:50:09linuxstbHilikus: What format is your recording (MP3, WAV, ....) ?
00:50:10 Quit bdgraue (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
00:50:15adriftyeah i noticed that Llorean... I haven't had the issue in the OF. don't know
00:50:23Hilikusbut i want to uncompress it
00:50:27Lloreanadrift: If it happens in the official firmware, it's a hardware thing.
00:50:30adriftthought maybe you all had heard something about it
00:50:40LloreanNobody's reporded it in our bug tracker.
00:50:46saratogabug reports on ABI can be questionable since everyone there is running with various patches
00:50:50adriftdo you have any suggestions? should i reformat?
00:51:02LloreanRun an official version of Rockbox with an official bootloader
00:51:13LloreanIf it happens see if you can figure out how to reliably reproduce it, or what settings make it more likely
00:51:38saratogaan easier way to erase your rockbox install is to just delete the .rockbox folder and then uninstall the booloader
00:51:51Hilikusmaybe transcode it to a lossless codec, what are your thoughts on that? im assuming its ok since its to lossless
00:53:20linuxstbHilikus: It depends what kinds of edits you want to perform. If you just want to cut/splice it, you can use mp3directcut which won't re-encode. If you want to do more, than just decode to WAV and use any audio editor - audacity is a free (open source) audio editor.
00:53:37Hilikusaudacy, got it

04:26:17kfazzwas the static that prompted the re-removal of sansa frequency scaling a very noticable thing?
04:26:30kfazzcuz i re-re-enabled it and i'm not noticing anything
04:27:32saratogakfazz: no it wasn't
04:27:39saratogai used it for a couple days without ever noticing it
04:27:49saratogayou had to play a lot of files that didn't boost the CPU to notice it
04:28:07saratogaa good way to reproduce it is to play a .wav file while scrolling through menus
04:28:20saratogabut i think it also broke recording too
04:28:27saratogaso it was a fairly serious problem
04:28:57kfazzi personally don't use recording, so i think i'll just enjoy the longer battery life

06:54:19advcomp2019i know but could those issues be cause by different hardware tho
06:55:09scorcheit doesnt have anything to do with different hardware

08:03:51ptw419where can I find out which font is represented by which number
08:04:11amiconnThere are only 2 numbers
08:04:11 Join Transience [0] (
08:04:28amiconn0 is FONT_SYSFIXED, 1 is FONT_UI
08:04:47ptw419ok, then I'm misunderstanding this :\
08:05:11TiMiD[FD]ah that
08:05:27amiconnFONT_SYSFIXED is built in, FONT_UI is what the user selects
08:05:40TiMiD[FD]what do you wanna do exactly ?
08:05:53ptw419so I would do font_init(FONT_UI)
08:06:06ptw419but from there how would I select the font i want to use?
08:06:32 Quit My_Sic (Client Quit)
08:06:53amiconnNo, you won't. font_init() is called at boot and never needs to be called again
08:07:15TiMiD[FD]will set the font to the system font
08:07:18ptw419ok, I recounted the wrong function heh
08:07:32ptw419but say I wanted to set it to Nimbus19
08:07:40TiMiD[FD]you want to load the font from disk ?
08:08:14ptw419loaded from memory
08:08:21ptw419from the bootloader
08:09:29TiMiD[FD]so you want to replace the built in font with another one in the bootloader ?
08:09:39ptw419yes, if possible
08:13:13TiMiD[FD]it is defined in the build directory ( sysfont.h )
08:14:03ptw419ah, awesome

08:17:15TiMiD[FD]good luck
08:18:13TiMiD[FD]one of those days I'll be so bored at work that I'll try to implement the independant font for remote and main
08:18:28ptw419i think it is initialized before then somewhere, but that gives a good lead where to start
08:18:41TiMiD[FD]yes probably in the configure
08:19:34ptw419my thougths too
08:21:20*amiconn wonders why one would need a different font in the bootloader
08:21:26TiMiD[FD]you could also just change the rockbox_default.bdf with another one
08:21:43TiMiD[FD]people are kamikaze sometimes
08:21:50amiconnTiMiD[FD]: No, you can't
08:22:02amiconnRockbox relies on the sysfont being 6x8
08:22:15amiconnThat's #defined somewhere
08:22:19TiMiD[FD]of course I can ^^
08:22:19ptw419well i'm trying to get a pic of hello world on the gigabeat S but I can't get my camera to focus w/ the small font

08:26:50amiconnThe general ata code is the same for all hdd based rockbox targets
08:27:03amiconnWhat tests?
08:27:24TiMiD[FD]I was obliged to disable some code to make the bootloader actually detect the disk
08:27:56scorcheyou are editing the H1x0 bootloader?
08:28:14TiMiD[FD]oh I had no choice
08:28:27TiMiD[FD]it would say "ata error -32" or something like that
08:28:44*scorche should tell Linus_N to expect another iriver to fix
08:28:57*scorche wonders why he put the underscore int here
08:28:58amiconnThe -32 should tell you where it failed
08:29:01TiMiD[FD]also it was unable to boot with the remote connected (saying the hold button was on)
08:29:02ptw419i wonder if it would be difficult to create a gigabeat S gdb stub, or even worth it
08:29:10TiMiD[FD]I found it and disabled that part
08:29:18TiMiD[FD]then recompiled and flashed
08:29:21amiconnBut the code works on all other H1x0s so something must be wrong with your unit
08:29:26TiMiD[FD]work pretty well
08:29:44TiMiD[FD]actually there was another guy who had a similar problem on the forum
08:30:04TiMiD[FD]but disabling that part make my unit work again
08:30:22amiconn"that part" is rather imprecise
08:30:37TiMiD[FD]the check_registers function in ata.c
08:30:41amiconnlinuxstb__: around?
08:30:48TiMiD[FD]line 716
08:31:04TiMiD[FD]just made it return 0 in all cases
08:31:27TiMiD[FD]apart from the bootloader, the daily builds with that enabled work fine
08:31:59amiconnThis tests is for checking whether the ata registers can be written&read reliably
08:32:19amiconnIf this fails, expect other ata commands to go wrong occasionally
08:32:36TiMiD[FD]it fails only in the bootloader
08:33:16TiMiD[FD]when it's executed for the second time by the loaded image, it fails no more
08:33:56TiMiD[FD]that's weird ...
08:34:36amiconnPerhaps a timing problem - but that should be caught...
08:36:38TiMiD[FD]it's also disabled on PP5002
08:39:29TiMiD[FD]if it was a timing problem why wouldn't that fail twice ?
08:39:56TiMiD[FD]the cpu frequency is different when in bootloader and in normal mode ?
08:43:34 Join ender` [0] (
08:46:50amiconnI mean boot timing. The disk might not be ready when check_registers() is called
08:47:29amiconnOr rather, it says it's ready but doesn't react properly yet

10:24:27TiMiD[FD]petur: well the mpeg player is always crashing with a stack overflow
10:24:34TiMiD[FD]I wonder what's wrong
10:25:08peturTiMiD[FD]: 1) main stack too small or 2) too much data allocated on the stack
10:25:24Zagoraliask: how about a branch in the main svn?
10:25:28TiMiD[FD]that doesn't depends on the target right ?
10:25:46aliaskZagor: That'd work quite well I think.
10:25:55peturTiMiD[FD]: no, except maybe for some targets with less memory
10:26:07TiMiD[FD]ok so ...
10:26:21TiMiD[FD]I suppose I'm the only one here to have this plugin crash
10:26:40Zagoraliask: I think it would be good. that way the project is very visible and accessible even though it's not in the main trunk.

10:34:01peturTiMiD[FD]: can't believe that... does it depend on the movie you play? Using svn or custom build?
10:34:03TiMiD[FD]it started to happen when I updated the bootloader (or maybe with the next build)
10:34:18TiMiD[FD]no it crashes on every movie instantaneously
10:34:24TiMiD[FD]but I use a svn bootloader
10:34:42TiMiD[FD]is the stack initialized in the bootloader ?
10:36:06peturI woulnd't think so

10:37:16peturdoes it use grayscale lib?

10:38:16TiMiD[FD]maybe the use of the grayscale lib takes more space in the stack ....
10:38:35*petur looks at linuxstb and amiconn
10:38:42TiMiD[FD]it happened when I updated the bootloader
10:39:01amiconnlinuxstb: The wmacodec in svn sets CONFIG_ALIGN for all targets, but in fact we only need it for arm
10:39:24TiMiD[FD]I will try to increase it's size if it's not obfuscated in asm code
10:39:33amiconnI tried undefining it for coldfire, and after some other fixes I got it working
10:39:39GodEater_how's the head this morning linuxstb ? ;)
10:39:54amiconnGives about 1.5% speedup (143->145% realtime with 128kbps)
10:40:02amiconnDo you think it's worth it?
10:40:14GodEater_any speedup is worth it imo

10:41:47linuxstbShouldn't we be using the system.h swapping functions instead of bswap.h?
10:41:55TiMiD[FD]amiconn: do you know by any chance where is the stack size located ? isn't that related to the global memory map ?
10:41:58cropAnyone about the "menu bug"? (see 9:27)
10:44:01amiconnTiMiD[FD]: Define _the_ stacksize. Every thread has its own stack
10:44:49amiconnlinuxstb: I already hooked our swap functions into bswap.h. Maybe we should use them directly and get rid of bswap.h instead (again)?
10:44:59TiMiD[FD]oh ok
10:45:16TiMiD[FD]it's defined per thread
10:45:26amiconnI'm not sure how much it matters to deviate from ffmpeg code
10:45:49peturTiMiD[FD]: the plugins use the main stack
10:46:10linuxstbI'm not sure either, but saratoga seems to be currently syncing code to current ffmpeg SVN (the codec was based on a very old version of ffmpeg), so I'm guessing at least for now we should try and stay with ffmpeg.
10:46:17amiconnTiMiD[FD]: The main stack is 8KB on all targets. This is defined in the linker script. Then there's a default stack size (1KB) #define d for other threads, but many threads modify that
10:47:16TiMiD[FD]but I get the error in the main stack so

13:03:29LqR <−− those.
13:12:02amiconnPower hungry headphones??
13:12:24scorche32 ohms are not power hungry...
13:12:32amiconnAt reasonable listening volume, the headphone power drain is neglectible compared to the rest of the hardware
13:12:57scorcheif it was 600 ohms, i could understand...but not 32..
13:13:22amiconn600 ohms headphones need less current than 32 ohms
13:14:16amiconnIt depends on the sensitivity how much power the headphones need for a certain perceived volume
13:15:02LqRWell, I just supposed they were, because both of the DAPs I've tried them with ran out of battery much faster than when I used other headphones
13:15:12amiconnAnd comparing 2 headphones at the same out power but with different impedance, the ones with higher impedance need less dc power
13:15:43amiconn...because less current means less power loss in the headphone amp.
13:17:27amiconnThe drawback is that the maximum possible output power is lower. Of course its only a drawback if the available power isn't sufficient for the listener

14:00:38pixelmaquote myself "The correct place for it is now in the .rockbox folder" - if you have one in the root, it won't be replaced in a future update. The bootloader might run this version and then you'll get a mismatch with the plugins or codecs again

15:03:46webguest57any tips?
15:03:52jac0bwhat WPS are you using
15:03:53Soul-SlayerWhats wrong with it?
15:04:03Soul-SlayerIf there is random text/numbers on the screen, you may need a patched build
15:04:53webguest57im trying to use the beatgirl MP
15:05:01webguest57the backdrop loads
15:05:12webguest57but the now playing screen is tha default one
15:05:56Soul-SlayerAll the files are in the correct places?
15:06:20Soul-SlayerAnd did you load it through 'Browse themes'?
15:06:33webguest57i load it through browse themes yeah
15:06:39webguest57and the bacdrop pops up
15:06:49webguest57but when i play a song it looks the same as the default
15:07:00PaulJamthat means that there was an error while loading the wps. propably the wps needs a patched build.
15:07:20Soul-SlayerGO on the forums, under 'Unsupported builds'
15:07:51jac0bthe theme might be updated with the new WPS code
15:07:54Soul-SlayerBut like it says, they are unsupported
15:08:14aliaskThe WPS works on a daily build
15:08:24aliaskAccording to
15:08:32Soul-SlayerLet me try it
15:08:40webguest57ok thank you all!
15:08:49Soul-Slayer*Now his gigabeat is up and running again*
15:09:16Soul-SlayerYou're correct
15:09:22Soul-SlayerBackbeat MP has the default WPS on mine too
15:09:26jac0bbut that has album art you need a patched build
15:09:27Soul-SlayerAnd I'm using a daily build
15:09:33Soul-SlayerSo you need an unsupported one
15:10:01Soul-SlayerI'm off out now this thing works, thanks jhMikeS
15:10:20webguest57so what can can u do to fix it?
15:10:42jac0byou need to look at the wps code
15:10:53Soul-SlayerYou can either install that build
15:10:54*jhMikeS should look into what's up with that
15:10:56Soul-SlayerOr modify the WPS
15:10:59jac0band have a uisimulator
15:12:05jac0bI will be uploading a mofied version of the plainbrown theme today when I get home
15:12:17jac0bwhich will be for the gigabeat
15:12:49webguest57i'll try that build! thanks!
15:13:09pixelmamarkun: if they are out-of-sync, he usually would get "Incompatible version" not "Incompatible model". One gets the latter if you try plugins compiled for the sim on target or vice-versa - in case of the Ipod guy before it was because the old rockbox.ipod in the root of the player was probably compiled before the split of 32/64MB builds...
15:13:32jhMikeSthe build table's getting festively colorful again
15:13:54pixelmamarkun: oh sorry, misread jac0b's report

17:03:13saratogalinuxstb: regarding syncing WMA to ffmpeg, I'm mostly doing it because the version of ffmpeg the codec is based on did not properly decode some of my low bitrate files, while the current svn version does
17:03:20***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
17:04:25amiconnThe fact that the gigabeat S has an fpu doesn't mean it would be better to run floating point codecs
17:04:29GodEater_markun: v. v. tempting
17:04:51GodEater_amiconn: I think we were joking ;)
17:05:00amiconnE.g. for amiga, there are 2 versions of libmad for 68060, an integer and an fpu version
17:05:13amiconnThe int version is almost twice as fast
17:06:08markunbut the i.mx31 can do floating point vector operations
17:06:15 Join spiorf [0] (
17:06:17markunso I assume that will be fast
17:06:21markunif we find any use for it

21:55:40BagderI wish I was that organized... I have that info spread out in 14 different text files on 7 different hosts ;-)
21:56:08*stripwax should actually go and do some more rockbox coding..

21:59:02bluebrotherhow much events will we have coming up? Any chance to have leftovers this year?
21:59:28Bagderthere are leftovers, sure and I'll deal with them sometime in August I think
21:59:43BagderI'll be on vacation pretty much the whole july

22:08:28*GodEater decides to try to knock the dregs of his cold on the head by having an early night.
22:08:53fm2petur: we could have four options: show always, never, hide for supported, and the current behaviour (can't come up with a good name)
22:08:57imbecilehey, if i enable disk mode can i just drag all my music over?
22:09:41fm2petur: the last option would hide all if the file filter is not set to "All" and show all otherwise
22:10:00peturyes I know ;)

22:10:34imbecilestripwax, where would i drag it to? i am running a fresh install

22:10:55stripwaxI just create a folder called Music and put it in there

22:18:26bluebrotherimbecile: you can put the music files anywhere on the player
22:18:40imbecilecool deal thanks
22:18:49bluebrotherfor myself, I have a folder "Music", so it gets /media/ipod/Music on linux
22:19:03fm2petur: hmm... I now think that we still could need "Hide for known". Imagine that you've set the filter to "All" and go browsing your music folder. There, (almost) all files are of supported types, so you wouldn't want to see the exts. But if you go to an "exotic" folder with some .doc etc files you (or I) would like to see the exts.
22:19:05bluebrotherand then I put my (folder-sorted) music there.
22:19:37stripwaximbecile - yep, anywhere. in fact probably best to leave the contents of .rockbox alone, just create a new top-level directory
22:20:07stripwaxfm2 - desktop.ini ? ;-)
22:20:22peturfm2: yes, but code-wise it is probably more than the current proposal, and I don't know if it is worth a lot of bytes

22:23:48peturfm2: I really wouldn't risk creating bloat of a fairly obscure feature
22:23:48stripwaximbecile - boot into Apple OS before you do the transfer - Apple OS supports USB2 transfers, diskmode probably only USB1 speeds ...
22:24:10amiconnstripwax: test_codec is shaky in general. With voice enabled, it crashes 100% reproducably on exit. On H1x0 I get an IllInstr exception
22:24:49amiconnstripwax: Diskmode is definitely faster than USB1.1 (factor of 2..2.5)

22:25:12DanHibikiHello everyone, is anyone having the same problem on nano as I reported here: ?
22:25:18stripwaxamiconn - I'm just getting a fresh build from but what I saw today was a codec error just playing files from browser , want to see if i can reproduce. sounds unrelated then though if test_codec is just shaky..
22:25:37stripwaxamiconn - hm, curious. wonder why it's slower than apple os
22:25:46amiconnBut it seems the observed sluggishness when installing a build is not only due to limited transfer speed
22:26:27*amiconn will do an expeeriment - just a moment
22:31:30 Join thegeek [0] (
22:32:24stripwaxOk. With Auto Change Directory turned on, play the last track in a folder , and then go back from the WPS to the file browser. when that last track finishing playing, rockbox spews codec failures - "Couldn't Load Codec /.rockbox/codecs/@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ (@ is a square)
22:32:29stripwaxif that makes sense
22:32:32stripwaxknown bug?
22:33:04low_lightanyone understand the h10/e200 bootloader...I'm trying to get it to load rockbox on my my m:robe :)
22:33:18stripwaxThat's a fresh build, ipod 5g 64mb. Works fine if I leave it on hte wps
22:33:32low_lightI can use it to boot the OF, but it does nothing when trying to boot rockbox
22:34:56Bagderlow_light: are you using mi4 files?
22:36:01amiconnstripwax: My impression was indeed correct: While ipod video diskmode achieves a transfer speed of 2..2.5MByte/s with large files, it's _signifcantly_ slower at transferring many small files than a pure USB1.1 device with a hardware bridge (archos player in my case)
22:36:02low_lightthe bootloader reports that the crc's match, but it just hangs after exiting the bootloader
22:37:07low_lightI tried putting a blinking light sequence in entry point in main.c, but the led's never blink
22:38:28stripwaxamiconn - not sure what that indicates, diskmode just has a higher overhead than regular apple os? (because apple os sure seems faster than diskmode). cpu speed?

22:55:54*amiconn doesn't trust linux usb support anymore
22:56:15linuxstb8 seconds sounds about right to unzip a build to my ipods (from Linux).
22:57:07linuxstb(mount ; unzip ; umount)
22:57:24RincewindI think that unzipping is faster for me
22:57:56bluebrotherwell, wouldn't that also be dependent on the fragmentation of the hard disk? ;-)
22:58:09Rincewindbut this could be the cache, because umounting is taking a little time afterwards
22:58:31linuxstbI always use a "mount ; unzip; umount" script to do the unzipping (I disable automount)
22:58:32bluebrotherthen it is cache.
22:58:42amiconnUnzipping to the mini G2 takes 16 seconds, which is reasonable given that it's only a microdrive

22:59:55linuxstbJust tested for my ipod Color - 2.7s to mount, unzip and umount
23:00:18amiconnlinuxstb: Now try the same with the video - I expect it to be a whole lot slower
23:00:43amiconnBtw, I am testing with the very same build zip, to an empty subdir on the various devices
23:01:43*amiconn doesn't understand bluebrother's question
23:01:44*linuxstb goes to look for his video
23:02:15imbecilewhere should i put my music folder on an ipod 5g video so it plays nice with appleOS while in disk mode?
23:02:18bluebrotherwell, I have a usb disk. If I have this connected the same time as the mini, transfers to the mini get crawling slow.

23:03:02imbecilestripwax, appleOS still detects the music?
23:03:08stripwaximbecile - it won't..

23:03:54imbecileouch, so its either rockbox or appleOS?
23:04:10imbecilei kinda wanted bot working
23:04:12amiconnbluebrother: Hmm, odd. Never saw that effect here (with up to 3 rockboxes hooked up to usb at the same time)
23:04:19stripwaximbecile - not quite - appleOS only 'sees' music uploaded via itunes (or whatever the linux equivalent is)
23:04:24stripwaxrockbox can see that too
23:04:38stripwaxSimple drag+drop will *not* be 'seen' by appleOS
23:04:46stripwaxno matter where you put it .. (blame Apple)
23:04:52PaulJamimbecile: if you want to use both, then transfer music with itunes and use the database in rockbox
23:05:16imbecileahhhhh.. cool deal

23:05:52imbecilehow do i boot into appleOS in 5g?
23:05:59stripwaximbecile - i gotta ask - if you already had a full ipod, with music transfererd on by itunes, why did you reformat it?
23:06:11stripwaximbecile - leave hold switch in hold position when turning it on
23:06:24imbecilestripwax, I was trying to install ipl
23:06:46stripwaxdoes ipl require a reformat? yuk
23:06:55*amiconn has a suspicion what causes the significant slowness here
23:07:00imbecileyou have to reformat to install ipl on video and mini
23:07:17amiconnThis is a G5.5, and the 2048byte logical sectors might be the cause
23:07:43linuxstbI would be curious to see if the speed is different under Linux.
23:08:04amiconnSure, because of dangerous write caching
23:08:13stripwaxamiconn - hm, my 5g (60gb) is slow too though
23:08:21amiconn*I* wouldn't trust it though without verify
23:08:40*linuxstb has never experienced corrupted disks with Linux USB
23:09:01amiconnYes, as I prefer to be able to just pull the plug, and will certainly forget to unmount very often
23:09:03Bagderme neither
23:09:23BagderI've done all my rockbox dev on linux usb since day 0
23:09:26linuxstbI think of mounting disks the same as being root - I only mount them when I need to, then umount immediately afterwards.
23:09:50linuxstbThe rest of the time they are charging (if they can)
23:10:02crwli have developed the habit of typing "sync" once or twice to the terminal before unplugging
23:11:34imbecilestripwax, what is hold switch?
23:11:52amiconnAnyway, I try to stay away from the linux+usb combination. I don't know what's up with the usb ports on this box, but it corrupted files without notice when copying ~10GB of flac. Not one file - many of them

23:39:00Bagderwhat, no tower of rockbox? ;-P
23:39:24FebsIt's a shame we remembered that after Mrs. Febs had already taken the camera back to the hotel.
23:40:09FebsOf course, by that point, I think that our motor skills had probably declined enough that building a tower would have been a risky proposition.
23:40:16XavierGrhow many people showed up in the end?
23:40:39XavierGris there a wiki page with the stuff that happened there? :P
23:40:43FebsIn the photo, from L to R, linuxstb, GodEater, me.
23:40:58linuxstbXavierGr: Drunk beer, ate curry, went home.
23:41:03 Quit midkay ("Leaving")
23:41:03FebsSomeone else showed up later. I can't remember his name.
23:41:36*petur wonders if Febs could put some names on the picture
23:42:15XavierGrit must be quite nice to be in a place with rockbox junkies together :D
23:42:23FebsIt was a good time.
23:42:23dan_aGodEater looks like a more normal version of a guy I know
23:42:35linuxstbDon't let looks fool you...
23:43:33dan_a"More normal" is relative
23:43:56linuxstbI'm not sure I can make the 25th July - but can probably make both days either side.
23:45:11dan_aI'm on a course and in my experience the Thursday is generally beerday - but the Tuesday should be fine
23:45:14linuxstbFebs: Has your bag arrived with you?
23:45:30 Join webguest06 [0] (i=5b7d192a@gateway/web/cgi-irc/
23:45:38webguest06Hello is anyone there?
23:45:56webguest06I could do with some help, im a complete noob
23:46:12webguest06i would like to put rockbox on my 30g Videos Ipod
23:46:20dan_aWhat do you need help with?
23:46:22linuxstbWhat's the problem (but be prepared to be referred to the manual)
23:46:28Febslinuxstb: yes, my bag arrived at some point after we went to the pub last night. Just in time for me to have to carry it home.
23:46:29webguest06Could anyone help me please? i have tried the manual but its very complicated for a noob liek myself
23:46:38Febswebguest06: just ask your question.
23:46:53*linuxstb recalls the conversation in the pub last night ;)
23:47:04*Febs was thinking the same thing.
23:47:10webguest06If i go wrong atall, will i be able to return to my original ipod settings?
23:47:17*bluebrother notices XavierGr
23:47:17webguest06i cant completely break my ipod trying?
23:47:23webguest06ok great
23:47:28DanHibikilinuxstb: tested 2007-07-03, got corrupted filenames after a few reboots and on some reboots Rockbox couldn't find any files, and complained about no .rockbox directory and installation incomplete
23:47:35bluebrotherXavierGr: seen my pm?
23:47:45linuxstbwebguest06: The worst that can happen is that you will need to restore your ipod with itunes.
23:47:48webguest06What is the first step i must take?
23:47:50DanHibikiyou can see a picture from the corrupted filenames here:
23:48:15amiconnlinuxstb: Is there a clever macro check that tells us we're compiling rockbox?
23:48:24DanHibikigonna try the latest build now
23:48:38bluebrotherFebs: who's who on that picture?
23:48:52webguest06The first steph of the guide says about a tezt editor, do i need to download this?
23:48:54amiconn(thinking about committting my unaligned optimisation for libwma with a clear check for rockbox)
23:49:09linuxstbamiconn: I seem to recall a -DROCKBOX somewhere, but I may be imagining it...
23:49:30stripwaxbluebrother - Febs already said!
23:49:51 Quit HellDragon ("brb")
23:49:52linuxstb(or maybe I added that myself to the APE codec Makefile - you could do the same for libwma's Makefile)
23:50:19stripwaxwebguest06 - what operating system do you use? Windows perhaps? If so, you can use Wordpad. It's a text editor.
23:50:29webguest06Note that the entire contents of the .zip file should be extracted directly to the root of your player’s drive - what does it mean by the root of your players drive?
23:50:31BagderI can't recall any rockbox define during the build
23:50:38webguest06I use wordpad yes
23:50:40Bagderwe could of course easily add one
23:50:45stripwaxwebguest - argh. Google for "root directory"
23:50:52dan_awebguest06: If your iPod is E:\ then extract to E:\
23:51:06dan_a(not E:\rockbox\ or anything)
23:51:17webguest06done that
23:51:18linuxstbBagder: Yes, it was me adding it to the APE Makefile...
23:51:30stripwaxwebguest06 - then follow the rest of the instructions..
23:51:30XavierGrbluebrother: just replied :D
23:51:32 Join HellDragon [0] (i=JD@unaffiliated/helldragon)
23:51:52bluebrotherstripwax: oh −− seems I'm really blind today :o
23:52:10*stripwax wonders if we can make the instructions any more clear. pictures maybe?
23:52:29linuxstbBagder: But yes, it could be useful. We could change those __PCTOOL__ defines to use !ROCKBOX instead.
23:52:36peturinflatable dev to do it for you?
23:52:49Febsstripwax: pictures of what?
23:52:54webguest06Ok il just try this, im afraid i break my ipod but im assured it call all be fized?
23:53:02stripwaxyeah it can all be fized ;-)
23:53:04DanHibikilinuxstb: latest build didn't detect .rockbox directory from the first boot
23:53:09webguest06:D thanks alot guys
23:53:24 Join rotator [0] (n=e@rockbox/developer/rotator)
23:53:28Febswebguest06: You might find it easier to use the Rockbox Utility:
23:53:29DanHibikigonna reboot a few times and see what happens
23:53:30Bagderlinuxstb: yes, and we'd have a defined way to do specific checks in codecs that might share code with other projects etc
23:54:03Febsbluebrother: in the picture, from L to R: (1) linuxstb, (2) GodEater, and (3) Febs.
23:54:08stripwaxFebs - actual screenshots of windows and linux perhaps? ok, maybe not linux but I don't want to discriminate.
23:54:36linuxstbDanHibiki: And you did a restore before testing the current build?
23:54:37stripwaxalthough rockbox utility is clearly the way forward.
23:54:42bluebrotherFebs: thanks. Just found it by scrolling back.
23:54:48linuxstbstripwax: And Mac OS X...
23:54:52bluebrothermaybe I should get some more sleep ;-)
23:54:52stripwaxof course
23:54:53DanHibikilinuxstb: yes, restored
23:55:17linuxstbstripwax: IMO the time would be better spent improving rbutil
23:55:34stripwaxwhat are the rbutil issues right now
23:56:01linuxstbI think the main issue is that it needs more explanatory text telling the user what to do.
23:56:07*amiconn borrowed the libdemac approach for now
23:56:36stripwaxisn't rbutil just a plug-in-your-mp3-player-and-hit-Go kind of affair?
23:57:21linuxstbAlmost. But bootloader installation can be tricky - you may need to mount or unmount your device, find an original firmware file to patch, etc
23:58:00stripwaxHappy to help test for ipod5g and h120..
23:58:03linuxstbIt also needs a little attention on Mac OS X - I've only done the bare mininum to make it work, but a few things (e.g. menus, icons) need adapting.
23:58:45 Quit jgarvey ("Leaving")
23:58:48stripwaxHm, why is the .ini file a separate file for the Windows download
23:58:51amiconnlinuxstb: Hmm, there's one place in bitstream.h where I have to check for a rockbox specific macro - CPU_COLDFIRE
