#rockbox log for 2007-09-04

00:00:10chrisjs169linuxstb, you don't really need to create it, it's still the encrypted copy
00:00:12linuxstbmarkun: In fact, forget that - Coldfire targets will most likely struggle...
00:00:19scorchechrisjs169: well, i havent touched sansas ;)
00:00:26chrisjs169just save it on to the Sansa (or both the e200 and e200R)
00:00:29chrisjs169scorche, ok ;)
00:00:50linuxstbchrisjs169: I just meant that you create it by renaming the original file...
00:00:54chrisjs169so I have somethign like e200.mi4 and e200r.mi4 - you can always rename/move them in rockbox
00:01:00chrisjs169linuxstb, ah, ok

00:02:38 Join PanicByte [0] (
00:03:12bluebrotherwhy 15 minutes?
00:03:24PanicBytehey, i just bought a Sandisk Sansa, i installed rockbox on it, and it works, except now it doesn't show up as a storage device in linux unless i boot into the original firmware, so i can't sync my music
00:03:32 Quit davina (Remote closed the connection)
00:03:42linuxstbbluebrother: No reason - just an arbitrary time...
00:03:46PanicByteanyone know how to make it show up as a mass storage device using the rockbox firmware
00:04:01linuxstbPanicByte: You boot into the original firmware....
00:04:14kugelthe svn bootloader works

00:04:26chrisjs169PanicByte, USB support is still in development
00:04:31PanicByteoh, alright
00:04:50*bluebrother wonders if /proc/bus/usb/devices is the best way to find out about the attached devices pids

00:05:18PanicBytethis is my first Rockbox player, my last mp3 player was a 2nd gen nano :(
00:05:31PanicByte$99 for 4GB at circuit city, just got it today
00:06:00chrisjs169USB support via Rockbox on Sansas and iPods are still in development, so you need to use hte OF
00:06:22PanicBytemy nano's screen cracked, the weird thing is, i've dropped it so many times, and it never broke, and then it just develops a crack right out of the blue, i never dropped it or anything, it was just sitting on my desk, weird
00:06:59linuxstbscorche: How are things going?
00:07:13Enterprise1701Is there a need for another pair of hands working on the E200R?
00:07:18chrisjs169scorche: ping
00:07:29chrisjs169Enterprise1701, sure ;)
00:07:30*scorche is still dangling on the end of the line
00:07:32PanicByteto the devs: keep up the good work
00:07:51Enterprise1701What's the thing about the bootloader?
00:08:12linuxstbHave you read the "Plan B" on the wiki?
00:08:29Enterprise1701Yeah. Is that the bootloader that you are using now?
00:08:47Enterprise1701Forgive me of my questions; it's my first time out here.
00:08:50chrisjs169that's the bootloader I'm using
00:09:07chrisjs169it's a modified version of the original e200r bootloader
00:09:20Enterprise1701How did you get RB to boot up on the E200R then?
00:09:27PanicBytehey, i got an idea for the devs, until you get USB support working on the sansa, you should make it reboot into the original firmware when you plug in USB cable
00:09:49chrisjs169via the modified version of the original e200r bootloader
00:10:17kugelpanic, many use RB to charge the battery
00:10:25scorchee200tool is not picking it up...
00:10:29advcomp2019PanicByte: i pmed you

00:11:02scorcheit doesnt seem like was detected in dmesg and is mounted though
00:11:10JdGordonhear what?
00:11:11chrisjs169wait, how's it mounted?
00:11:22Bagderin manufacture mode it can't be mounted
00:11:26chrisjs169JdGordon, we've almost got Rockbox on the e200R
00:11:27linuxstbscorche: If it's mounted, you're not in manufacturing mode...
00:11:37Enterprise1701How can I get that bootloader to run RB? sneaked into recovery mode....
00:11:44JdGordonwow :)
00:11:51*scorche should have grabbed some coffee while he was out
00:11:52krazykitPanicByte, that's what they're working on right now ;-)

00:12:34Enterprise1701Yes I am except in Windows it's not detected. I assume you use the recover tool?
00:12:39chrisjs169OF.bin is the one that freezes
00:12:45kugelah ok
00:12:56chrisjs169Enterprise1701, e200tool in Windows (usually) doesn't work

01:07:28lazkaThe wiki says charging a sansa with RB is "not really usefull". Is this still right??
01:07:32saratogaanyway, regarding bug fixes, the math isn't too important, mostly its patience to dig through a hundred KB worth of floats from rockbox and ffmpeg and look for the ones that don't match :)
01:07:42saratogalazka: no its quite useful now
01:07:47saratogacan you link where it says that
01:08:25nerochiarosaratoga: well, yeah, but when they don't you need math to understand how to fix them to make them match, i suppose
01:08:32saratogalazka: actually that might be correct
01:08:34 Quit Wiwie ("Miranda IM! Smaller, Faster, Easier.")
01:08:39saratogai'll withdraw my remark above
01:08:49LloreanI wouldn't say it's not useful
01:08:52LloreanIt's just not as efficient
01:09:09LloreanI charge in Rockbox regularly without problem, but if you need it charged in a hurry the OF is a better bet.
01:09:23*lazka is wondering why code affects charging Oo
01:09:25saratoganerochiaro: well you need to understand what a fixed point number is, but thats simple, they're just ints multiplied by a larger number to fake having a decimal point
01:09:40saratogaexample: 1 == 65536 in the codec
01:09:48Lloreanlazka: Because a USB device has to request 500mah, otherwise it only receives 100, and Rockbox has no USB mode of its own.
01:09:49saratogaso that we can do 1/2 == 32768
01:09:54saratogaand so on
01:10:12saratogathats what all those shifts do, they just adjust what value equals to 1
01:10:18Lloreanlazka: Were you to, for example, plug it into a dedicated charger rather than a USB port on a computer, it would probably charge at full speed even in Rockbox, I'd bet.
01:10:23saratogadepending on what value is needed for that section of the code
01:10:31lazkaLlorean: ah, i see. thanks
01:11:26saratogabasically, if a CPU has an FPU, then the hardware does that for you, but since we don't have one, we have to keep adjusting that to keep numbers well conditioned (basically make sure the average value of a variable is around 2^16 so that it doesn't over or underflow)
01:11:39nerochiarosaratoga: i think i get the idea. seems one of these deceptively simple things ;) i'll try looking at the code again in this context
01:11:52saratogamost of the bugs you hear in low bitrate files are just areas where I guessed what the average is very poorly
01:12:33saratogaso to fix it, I dump floats until i find where they don't match, and then look at a bunch of values to figure out what range is needed to avoid noise
01:13:09saratogalow bitrate files are really difficult though since they use a lot of very small numbers combined with very large numbers, which makes small mistakes very rough on the ears
01:13:28 Quit krazykit (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
01:13:57nerochiarosaratoga: sounds easier than it probably is. but the explanation made a lot of sense to me. thanks
01:14:25nerochiarosaratoga: oh, i have one question for you that i was about to forget
01:14:41nerochiarosaratoga: the decoder in rockbox is designed to be run single-threaded ?
01:14:57saratoganerochiaro: yes, multithreading it would not make much sense
01:15:05nerochiarowhy not ?
01:15:25saratogathe problem is not posed in such a way that theres an obvious way to parallelize it
01:15:35saratogayou would probably have to software pipeline it
01:16:01saratogado the noise coding/LSP/VLC stuff on one thread, then hand that over to the second thread for iMDCT and windowing
01:16:06saratogai think the gain would be quite small
01:16:27nerochiaroah, no, i didn't explain well what i meant, sorry. i meant running 2 instances of the decoder in parallel
01:16:28saratogaand anywya, we've got it running at about 35MHz on the slowest CPUs imaginable, so theres little sense in trying to multithread it
01:16:32O112358can rockbox run any other MAME roms or just pacman?
01:16:43kugelwhat happened about RB on Sansa rhapsody? Didn't see the two people having an R for some hours?
01:16:49saratoganerochiaro: thats entirely up to your OS
01:16:55 Join perrikwp [0] (i=9821616e@gateway/web/cgi-irc/
01:17:01hcsO112358: pacbox is not MAME, it is just a pacman emulator, so no
01:17:52saratogaassuming you've got processes in your OS, the decoder wouldn't even know you were doing it
01:18:05nerochiarosaratoga: ok, but what if the decoder uses global variables that are common to all instances ? i'm asking since the issues i'm having is that they seem to interfere with each other, and i'm not sure if it's a bug in my code, in libasf, or in decoder itself
01:18:15Soapkugel: the proud new owner of a Sansa 200R series is locked in PM with an experienced pro at this sort of thing, working through the process step by calculated step. ;) We will hear from him shortly.
01:18:38saratoganerochiaro: OSes with processes do not allow global variables to be shared between processes
01:18:51nerochiarosaratoga: threads in the same process
01:19:00SoapThe chatter is this room had become too much for them to have a good working conversation in the main hall.
01:19:14kugelyou mean scorce and jack are privat chatting?
01:19:20saratogain that case, it would depend on your OS and how it managed such things
01:19:41*Bagder crawls away
01:19:48scorcheSoap: hardly experienced pro...i havent looked much into the sansas, which is why i am getting help ;)
01:20:55kugelbut you are working on it?
01:21:10nerochiarosaratoga: ok, as i thought. i was just asking in case you had a quick idea it was something that had to do with the wma decoder design, but i suppose it's more an issue in my code. no problem, i'll figure it out. i was just asking just in case i missed something obvious.
01:21:25kugeli had the feeling the work on it freezed, but you are just not doing it in this channel
01:22:12saratoganerochiaro: can your system actually decode two things at once?
01:22:25saratogathats pretty impressive for a music player
01:22:52`sam`ok, i have a voice working, but it's saying the wrong menu item
01:23:04Lloreansaratoga: Don't we do something equivalent with Voice on swcodec?
01:23:07nerochiarosaratoga: no. it's decoding while it indexes in the background other files that are in the queue. that's another reason why probably the wma decoder is not to blame
01:23:24LloreanWe don't decode in parallel, but we decode two things fast enough to mix them.
01:23:26linuxstbWhat do you mean by index?
01:23:29nerochiarosaratoga: since the indexing thread is only parsing asf
01:23:40nerochiarolinuxstb: parsing asf and extracting metadata
01:23:49linuxstbnerochiaro: Ah, so you shouldn't be running the decoder at all then.
01:23:49nerochiarolinuxstb: then adding to internal db
01:24:32saratoganerochiaro: ah, yeah rockbox has multiple threads too, but only one of them can be a decoder
01:24:43 Quit Ebert ()
01:24:45nerochiarolinuxstb: that indexing can also happen while decoding. so one instance of the decoder+asf parser runs (to play audio) and the indexer just scans files with the asf parser alone. so indeed that's not a problem of the decoder, it can't be
01:25:30nerochiarosometimes asking questions brings out the obvious like nothing else. sorry for the noise i caused with the question, though

02:56:21Falco98that's basically what i was aiming at
02:56:50Falco98the issues i'm thinking of are, for example, people who leave the ipod booted into rockbox overnight and leave it charging, where it sits there and resets every 5 minutes
02:57:16Falco98or, cases where it would be really nice to have a "backlight when charging" option (like in a car)
02:57:22LloreanFalco98: Feel free to issue a patch then.
02:57:36*preglow roger whittaker - new world in the morning
02:57:54Falco98well, i'm not trying to complain, i just wanted to confirm that it's not exactly an unknown issue or anything
02:58:01LloreanThings don't magically code themselves, and there are a lot of higher priorities related to the iPods right now.
02:58:12Falco98i realize of course that it's not exactly critical and that there are workarounds for everything
02:58:14LloreanMerthsoft: What format is your music in?
02:58:37Falco98i wish i could submit a patch, i'd probably be able to get a coding job if i were that good
02:58:38Merthsoftand it worked before I put this build on
02:58:51LloreanMerthsoft: And you are running an unpatched build, and the official bootloader from, neither compiled yourself?
02:59:01Falco98but it does seem like the kind of thing that would require rather intimate hardware knowledge of ipods, and of course, i don't own one
02:59:23 Join Ebert [0] (
02:59:24Merthsoft no, I compiled it, but all I have is a little thing I was making that is no different than beofre I put it on now
02:59:42LloreanFalco98: Actually, I suspect it won't require much hardware knowledge at all, Rockbox already recognizes that a charger is connected rather than USB, it just doesn't treat it as a charger, I think.
02:59:52Merthsoftit's not stalling now, just crashing
02:59:54Falco98ah gotcha
03:00:05LloreanMerthsoft: So, what you're saying is "I should be quiet and test it with a 100% official version, first"
03:00:22Falco98out of curiosity, is there any way to confirm in rockbox (as it exists now) that it's seeing a charger?
03:00:23Merthsofti suppose
03:00:30Falco98just thru the GUI etc..
03:00:41LloreanFalco98: Yes, check in the debug menu in the View I/O ports, i believe
03:01:00Falco98ah, gotcha..
03:01:37Falco98who knows, if i ever have extended time alone with my GF's ipod and another person to help me fish out the correct code, i might take a crack at it
03:03:36MerthsoftLlorean: Apparently, being quiet and using %100 official version, first, doesn't work any better then trying to get it figured out before doing that
03:04:12LloreanMerthsoft: Either way, we can't know that your code works, and we have strict rules in this channel
03:04:28***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
03:04:41LloreanDon't ask for help here unless you're running the official version, installed as described in the manual, using the files referenced in the manual, and all files are up to date.
03:04:44MerthsoftMy code was a plugin, it shouldn't have had anything to do with that... But either way, I did it, and it didn't work...
03:05:25LloreanMerthsoft: Your code may have been a plugin, but you were still compiling on a computer that wasn't one of the official build servers, which means that we don't know your GCC version, or that everything is working properly, for example.
03:05:58MerthsoftI used the crap that the webpage told me to, but that doesn't matter, if that's a rule it's a rule and I am now abiding by it...
03:06:18MerthsoftI'm sorry I didn't before.
03:06:20LloreanNow, if you revert back to a prior build does the database start working/
03:06:28MerthsoftHow would I do that
03:06:35LloreanBy restoring whatever version you had previously.
03:06:56LloreanDo you know what SVN revision it was? You can either download the daily build closest to it, or compile that revision specifically by checking it out with SVN.
03:07:02MerthsoftOk, let me try... I'm nor sure what I had, but I'll try to get close
03:07:28LloreanYou did say that the absolute only change was updating to a newer build of Rockbox, after which the database failed to build? (though I'm curious why you re-inited rather than updated)
03:08:07MerthsoftYeah, that's all I changed... And I'm not really sure
03:08:17Merthsoftfor the hell of it i guess
03:08:52Merthsoftok, that seems to be working
03:09:02Merthsoftone from august 20th
03:09:23Merthsoftand it's straight from
03:09:25LloreanSo now try to figure out when it stopped working.
03:10:04Merthsoftshould I wait until it's done initiallizing, or just so long as it gets past the point where it crashed before?
03:10:28Merthsoftand should I completely remove it before installing another one
03:11:29LloreanYou should make sure the database initializes and is usable.
03:11:44LloreanAnd yes, it'd be best if you completely removed it between tests for now
03:11:55Merthsoftthis'll take a while

04:14:53saratogasounds like its the same as the e200 repair process if you delete your recovery partition?
04:15:03chrisjs169saratoga, mostly, yes
04:15:20saratogawell congrats on figuring it out
04:15:25chrisjs169saratoga, except instead of writing the e200 bootloader to flash, a modified version of the R bootloader is
04:15:35chrisjs169saratoga, I didn't figure it out - I was just a lab rat ;)
04:15:40saratogacould you just have written the 200 one?
04:16:20chrisjs169saratoga, we could, but because of the signatures, the Rhapsody firmware wouldn't be bootable
04:16:48chrisjs169so this process mostly keeps everything intact, just disables the Rhapsody signature check

04:18:31chrisjs169scorche, via the OF.mi4?
04:18:32Soapdid you get the 250 or 280?
04:18:46scorcheactually, hold on and let me double check
04:18:49scorcheSoap: 250
04:18:57chrisjs169if you held <<| then yes
04:19:17scorchewell, yeah...whatever OF.mi4 is, which is the e200r firmware
04:20:06chrisjs169actually, Rockbox can boot either one, since it can switch between signatures
04:20:14chrisjs169(assuming proper terminology)
04:21:01chrisjs169I had both the vanilla and rhapsody firmware on mine, and booted both without problems (after renaming/moving files)
04:22:03saratogaso how afraid are we of people bricking their e200r with this process?

05:20:44Lloreanpananohacker: It's a User Interface Simulator. Basically it's a program you can run on your computer that looks like Rockbox (and performs a few of the same functions) and is used for testing patches or WPSes/Themes, etc.

05:31:50`sam`Llorean, actually it says "we recommend gcc 4.0.3"
05:32:42Llorean`sam`: Yep, just as we recommend installing Rockbox on players it actually runs on. We can't force people not to do whatever they want, but they should do it the recommended way before saying something's wrong.
05:34:43arrrghhhlook at that, standard build and themes work... damnit!
05:39:15arrrghhhis rockbox not fully supported on the ipod?
05:39:58scorchedefine "not fully supported"
05:40:08RudMan_since the standard build and themes work....apparently it is
05:40:27 Quit Logar ()
05:40:59arrrghhhyea themes aren't working really at all
05:41:07arrrghhhit changed them for the first theme i picked
05:41:14scorchethen you are likely using broken themes
05:41:18arrrghhhthen after that the other themes just applied pieces
05:41:22arrrghhhmmmm great
05:41:35RudMan_or themes that require a custom build
05:41:39scorchenot all themes are up to date
05:41:47arrrghhhnow it won't apply any themes at all
05:42:05arrrghhhand i checked all these themes do not require a special build... i made sure of that
05:42:14scorcheit should still apply the themes that worked before
05:42:44arrrghhhi cleared the settings to go back to defaults, and now it doesn't apply any theme settings...
05:43:29arrrghhhshoot... i was hoping rockbox would free my ipod of itunes so i could use it easily with linux!
05:43:46scorcheit does that perfectly for me...
05:44:02arrrghhhstrange part is i had rockbox working WONDERFULLY with my previous ipod
05:44:12arrrghhhthis new one... not so much
05:44:40arrrghhhi haven't even tried loading anything with itunes, i just formatted it as a winpod in itunes and then plugged it into my linux box to transfer music & rockbox...
05:45:09scorcheall you ahve described to me sounds like broken themes...hardly rockbox's fault
05:45:44arrrghhhtheir theme is just impossible to read unless i can stare at the screen for a good minute
05:45:58scorchethen dont use that theme...
05:46:12arrrghhhuh that's what i'm trying to do?
05:46:16arrrghhhand it's not working...
05:46:26RudMan_first thing I did when I loaded rockbox was build my own theme that used big fonts so I can read the screen
05:47:14arrrghhhja? i just picked some of the ones i liked off the rockbox 'official' themes list
05:47:26LloreanWhat "official" themes list?
05:47:30arrrghhhworked great on my other ipod... not sure what's up with this one
05:47:47Lloreanarrrghhh: That's the wiki. Anyone can upload
05:47:55LloreanTry loading iCatcher or one of the other themes that comes preinstalled.
05:48:04arrrghhhyea... that's why i put 'official' in the quote!
05:48:07scorchethat is about to be marked not to be used anymore as well
05:48:46arrrghhhyea? a lot of themes are broken i guess huh... shame this all worked so well on my other ipod... the other pod's hdd was toast tho so yea.
05:49:15Lloreanarrrghhh: How long ago was this "working so well"?
05:50:08arrrghhhyesterday i got a new ipod (same 80gb ipod, just a new replacedment pod from the crapple store)
05:50:13LloreanWell any theme that worked with a build from Sunday should work with a build from Today
05:50:20LloreanWere you also using an official, up to date build then?

05:51:02arrrghhhand iclicker theme did seem to load correctly... although the font alignments are poor, i'm guessing that's how the theme is because a lot else appears different
05:51:12LloreanDid you install the font pack?
05:51:47arrrghhhno i don't believe so... if a theme needed new fonts i noticed those included but i never installed any specific 'font pack'
05:52:01LloreanNot all themes include the necessary fonts.
05:52:11LloreanThat's why the manual strongly suggests you install the font pack from the extras page.
05:52:26LloreanYou *did* read the manual at some point, right?
05:52:48arrrghhhi read how to install it... so i know i'm doing that all properly!

05:53:43LloreanIn fact I'm quite sure the guidelines also mention something about reading the manual...
05:53:51LloreanThe very same guidelines I've mentioned a few times before.
05:56:10arrrghhhmaybe evilg's build had the fontpack built in... i'm goin back to that build
05:56:26arrrghhhthanks for all your wonderful advice, the internet sarcasm was great too

06:00:59scorchethose guidelines are there just to taunt him
06:01:25RudMan_or just look at a theme that is not working and make sure all the files are there in the correct places

06:09:23LloreanFair enough
06:09:57LloreanJust wanted to make sure you were aware of that really
06:10:40scorcheyup...i went through that enough today to have a good grasp of what is going on, and recovery procedures, etc =)

06:11:22LloreanWhile I wouldn't presume to say the e200 is unbrickable, whatever's necessary to get it worse than needing manufacturing mode requires a pretty special screwup
06:12:10scorcheof course...i was mainly referring to what i said above though =)

08:57:27JdGordonis the i2c rom the thing that stops us running our own bootloader? or it just stops us modifiying the existing one?
08:57:52GodEater_the i2c rom is identical to the vanilla 200
08:57:54B4gderthe boot loader in the i2c rom loads the BL
08:58:00B4gderthe BL is what loads the mi4
08:58:14amiconnB4gder: I wonder what's up with the web server. 2nd crash within 4 days...
08:58:50B4gderno, the other problem was reboot-related
08:58:51JdGordonso I'm confused, why does it have to be overwritten to et our BL working?
08:59:12B4gderJdGordon: because the original BL on the R models cheks the digital signature of the mi4
08:59:20B4gderso that our dummy-sig doesn't work
08:59:52amiconnB4gder: I'm not talking about the server missing to pick up commits. It was down on Saturday from ?? til ~11:00
09:00:49B4gderno, it wasn't "down", it was apache that didn't start after the reboot
09:01:12amiconnStill strange
09:01:15B4gderwhich seems to be due to an apache upgrade
09:01:27B4gderfor some reason it added port 443 to the default config

09:01:53amiconnIs that a debian machine?
09:02:17B4gderand since we run sshd on port 443, apache wouldn't start...

09:03:57JdGordonB4gder: could we get some code working which overwrites the BL instead of having to use the recover i2c method? I mean, use the e200tool to put some code into ram and then run it?

09:04:18B4gderwe don't modify the i2c rom

09:06:41B4gderso that you can use its recovery mode

09:06:45GodEater_will MrH mind us including e200tool in rbutil ?
09:07:08B4gderGodEater_: it's mostly a matter of us not accepting anonymous contributions...

09:08:17B4gder100% secret
09:08:29JdGordonwe should call him Harry in CREDITS
09:08:32*GodEater_ remembers the days of
09:11:44GodEater_are we willing to compromise that decision in this case ?
09:12:01GodEater_since otherwise I don't see how we can ever claim to support the e200r series
09:13:05JdGordon... the same way we can use his findings in the rest of the code?
09:13:08JdGordonjust rewrite it?
09:13:32B4gderwell, we can still "support" it even be rbutil can't
09:13:36B4gdereven if
09:13:45B4gderand yes, we can write the code ourselves
09:13:49B4gderor write it differently
09:14:03scorcheit still is a pretty arduous procedure for the average user
09:14:36B4gderyes, but we had a very involved procedure for the vanilla ones too at first
09:14:52*GodEater_ is never comfortable with this idea of re-writing things. We still know in our hearts is basically MrH's work that we're regugitating
09:15:57JdGordon(trying to understand this).. on a non-rockboxed e200(r) the i2c loads the OF directly? it doesnt go therough a bootloader firsy?
09:16:11 Join davina [0] (
09:17:57B4gderthe i2c rom loads the BL from the hidden partition
09:18:00B4gderthe BL loads the mi4
09:18:16B4gderin a rockboxed case, the BL loads the rockbox-bootloader-mi4
09:19:44JdGordonso slighty related q... why on earth hasnt sandisk released a new version which replaces their bootloader with one which stops us on the vanila e200's?
09:20:39GodEater_why would they do that ?
09:20:46B4gderbecause they don't care?
09:20:49GodEater_I can't imagine they care
09:20:51JdGordonwhy bother with it on the r then?
09:21:00B4gderthat's Rhapsody/Real
09:21:13GodEater_they don't want us stealing their DRM
09:21:21B4gderaccording to some forums out there, Real was involved quite a bit in the design of that
09:21:33JdGordonah ok
09:21:45amiconnWow. Using the pool, I can now build 9 english voices with sapi in <6 minutes on my laptop :)
09:22:15amiconn(if the bitmaps are already built)
09:22:43amiconnB4gder: Do you have an idea how to stop the feature target trigger building bitmaps?
09:23:18B4gderI know why it behaves like that, but the fix is not obvious to me
09:24:28amiconnIt's not the only dependency weirdness
09:24:46B4gderno, but one of the worst...
09:25:22amiconn(1) Normal builds always check the bitmaps twice. (2) codecs are always relinked in sim builds, but not target. (3) Target builds don't relink codecs if only the codeclib changed
09:25:48amiconnImo (3) is the worst, 'cause it produces unexpected results.
09:25:59amiconnThe others are "just" annoying as they cost time
09:26:16JdGordonplugins are also relinked iirc
09:26:32JdGordonIm sure i remmeber something with plugins which shouldnt happen

09:28:30GodEater_I prefer beaking them :)
09:28:39JdGordonthats the only one I can think of... because you cant add new icons to only 1 target if you want the iconsets to be usable on all...
09:29:53scorcheah...well, are you waiting on something for that?...anything that breaks themes would be nice to go in befor ethe themes site goes live, as people will fix the themes to submit them to the site

10:29:14linuxstbscorche: My thoughts on a plan are to write an app we upload to the e200r in manufacturing mode and execute. That app will patch the OF bootloader directly in the firmware partition. After that, the user will have to copy the PP5022.mi4 and a OF.mi4 to the device in normal UMS mode.
10:29:20scorchei wonder if we could claim the install process unsupported so if they have any install issues, we get to say we cant help them...

10:34:45scorchelinuxstb: likely not, but i have a bit with it before i must get it back
10:34:54advcomp2019i am reading what the script he made does
10:35:30linuxstbI guess a short-term solution could be a linux live-CD image with e200tool?
10:36:13scorchei think that is a bit much
10:36:19amiconnWhat's the prob with e200tool on windows?
10:36:38linuxstbIt doesn't work...
10:36:47linuxstbI guess no-one has investigated the details.
10:37:05linuxstbIt requires libusb for the USB communication with the E200 in manufacturing mode.
10:37:06amiconnDefine "does not work"...
10:37:08JdGordondoes anyone know how to compile code so e200tool can run it on the target?
10:37:10B4gderno, I don't think anyone who has had the problems has had the skills
10:37:19JdGordonlast time I tried I failed
10:37:28B4gderamiconn: I don't think we know what works or not
10:37:46B4gderbasically, all us who have poked on the e200 are using and have been using linux
10:38:22B4gderlibusb is supposed to work the same way on windows, afaik, so e200tool would work the same

10:49:57linuxstbJdGordon: Do you want to commit the USB-detection modification to the Sansa bootloader now? (I committed my detection patch)
10:50:27TiMiD[FD]no it's not in svn
10:50:41rasherlinuxstb: Didn't he already? r14601
10:50:44amiconn(1) The perl script can't handle all replacement strings, because some of them depend on the voice used, which the perl script can't know (e.g. for sapi, AT&T voices need different corrections than Microsoft voices etc)
10:50:45***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
10:51:04amiconnSo I am pondering whether I should add replacement to the vbscript
10:51:47linuxstbrasher: Yes....
10:51:51amiconn(2) Regarding the pool - the pool clips not only depend on the actual spoken text, language and engine, but also on the TTS parameters and encoder parameters
10:52:19rasheramiconn: The same thing could be said of festival - there are multiple english voices, for example. I don't really know how best to handle that
10:52:23amiconnE.g. if I use the pool, but want a different voice speed for hwcodec (in order to keep the file small) that doesn't work atm
10:52:46rasheramiconn: Yeah, I believe I even have a comment to that effect in the source? Isn
10:52:56amiconnSame thing for lame options - say I want to encode the clips for archos with −−resample 8, but the others with −−resample 16...
10:53:02rasher't it just a matter of adding tts_opts and encoder_opts to the string we md5?

10:54:47delYsidGRaTT: In what way?
10:55:35rasherAs for the string replacement, I suppose adding it to vbscript could work - or we could let the perl script parse the tts_opts for sapi and have a switch for that as well
10:55:58rasherThat seems slightly nicer - to keep it all in one place
10:56:05rasherAs much as possible
10:58:20amiconnThat might work, but is quite ugly imo
10:58:44amiconn..because then the perl script needs to know which voice name matches which engine, while the vbscript can query that
10:59:16amiconnE.g. it knows that all of Crystal16, Mike16, Audrey16, Charles16 are AT&T english voices

11:03:18 Join skate3214_ [0] (
11:03:58rasherAh, didn't know that. I'd say that it'd be nice if the vbscript could tell the perl script which engine is used

11:37:40amiconnddalton: I'm not sure what you did until now, but it's not possible to voice plugins properly with the current system
11:37:52amiconnYou can only reuse what's already in the .voice file
11:38:07ddaltonJames_Malone: it is for blind users!
11:38:36ddaltonyes but have you seen p7704. But your right we just need a voice file for the plugins
11:39:05linuxstbB4gder: Yes. But I think it's more the idea of telling people download those files as part of the official install process.
11:39:26B4gderI agree that it is a bit unfortunate
11:40:19ddaltonYou can add to english.lang of course.
11:40:39linuxstbThe S port is at the same stage - it requires users running a hacked version of Toshiba's Windows installer.
11:40:55ddaltonanyway how would I make it so you can build a voice file for the rockbox core and then a separate one maybe english_plugin.voice for the plugins?
11:41:19amiconnddalton: That should not be done with the current system, as it increases the size of the voice file, which is completely loaded into ram with the current system
11:42:01ddaltonamiconn: So should each plugin have its own voice file then?
11:42:29scorcheB4gder: are you planning on moving any of the BL_SD files onto the download site, or are they getting them from your site?
11:42:41linuxstbscorche: Those files are (C) Sandisk
11:42:43ddaltonso what is your solution then?
11:42:43amiconnThere is the (quite old) idea of having several segments in the voice file
11:43:10B4gderscorche: they won't go to the download site unless we get permission for that
11:43:17B4gderand I doubt we'll see that happen
11:43:24linuxstbB4gder: Any idea if they're available from Sandisk's site?
11:43:31amiconnThat needs to be implemented first. It would also allow to re-unify voice files (no more different voice files per target) without taking too much ram
11:43:33B4gderthey were, but no longer
11:43:34ddaltonwell what about a voice file called plugin.voice? And then if your player can't handle the 3 or 4 mb voice file you can't have voice for plugins
11:43:48B4gderlinuxstb: they switched to an "upgrade" tool these days
11:43:52B4gderwindows only of course
11:44:00ddaltonHow would that work?
11:44:08ddaltonabout your idea on the voice?
11:44:11amiconnddalton: The problem with separate voice files is the exploding number of files
11:44:18B4gderI gotta go and take care of Rex this afternoon

11:45:08linuxstbIs any Sansa owner volunteering to attempt to write an app that can be uploaded and executed on the Sansa to patch the E200R bootloader in-place?
11:45:19amiconnRight now we already have a ton of them potentially: 25 targets * 33 languages == 825 files
11:45:36ddaltonwell most likely blind people won't want to access most plugins. Some I can think we might like to use are: stop watch, clock, battery bench, and maybe jpeg view, text editor and mpg plugin
11:45:39amiconnNow imagine 10 voiced plugin - they would multiply this number by 11...
11:45:44ddaltonand jpeg
11:46:17james_maloneoh, and mabie the calculator but that;s about it.
11:46:42dionoeasorry if this sounds stupid, but why would you use the jpeg viewer if you're blind?
11:47:14linuxstbddalton: Why would plugins like stopwatch, clock, battery bench and text editor not be of interest to blind users?
11:47:26ddaltonwell maybe if your showing sighted friends photos. But you probably wouldn't. And I bet your going to ask about the mpeg player. You can listen to the sound of the movie
11:47:39ddaltonI said they would didn't I
11:47:42linuxstbddalton: Ah, your list was plugins you _want_ to be voiced?
11:47:50dionoeaah ok :=
11:47:53ddaltonyep sorry...
11:48:42ddaltonwell it could be an optional extra. Until we find a better way
11:49:05james_maloneyeh, it could be
11:49:22linuxstbddalton: If you wanted to listen to the audio from videos, it would be a lot more efficient to just rip the audio from the file and play that. You need to re-encode videos to play on Rockbox anyway, so for a blind user, that re-encoding would simply be to extract the audio stream.
11:49:45GodEater_would make them much smaller
11:50:18ddaltonhey I got the video playing once. It was in mpeg format. I didn't do any translating. But yeah it would save space. So now we have got rid of voicing mpeg player and jpeg viewer.
11:50:53ddaltonso what is the best idea at the minute do you guys think?
11:51:35linuxstbddalton: I'm not saying they shouldn't be voiced - I just wanted to make sure you knew that mpegplayer isn't a very efficient way to just listen to audio from videos.
11:51:52amiconnThe user: idea would bring back the number of potential voices down to 33, even when plugins get voices
11:52:28ddaltonwell when I think about you are right. I don't know many blind users that will use the mpeg player

12:04:41amiconnNo, it would be 10*number_of_targets aditional voices, and that's even only for english!
12:05:32ddaltondid you read my message about lang v2? we could make one voice file for each plugin that worked on each target.

12:12:59amiconnI wouldn't want to even start this mess if there's a more elegant way

12:35:45ddaltonLinusN: What do you think about voicing plugins? Have you seen p7704?

12:36:34ddaltonso get rid of chessbox
12:36:53LinusNthat was an odd conclusion
12:37:03bluebrotherremove doom!
12:37:17bluebrother(just to take the opportunity of saying that once again ;-)
12:37:23LinusNi mean that the plugins should have separate voice files
12:37:38ddaltonHow should the voice file problem work. Should there be a voice file for all the plugin?
12:37:58LinusNpossibly even a separate voice file for each plugin
12:38:38LinusNthe original idea for the plugins is to make it possible to distribute plugins separate from the core
12:38:47ddaltonthat was my idea. And apparently we would end up with to many voice files. voicing 10 plugins would be 10*33
12:38:52ddaltonor maybe more
12:39:18LinusNremember that we don't have language support for plugins yet
12:39:40ddaltonok so what do you think just voice the plugins that are going to be useful for us and then provide voice files for each one?
12:39:54ddaltono don't you? Never new that.
12:40:13ddaltonprobably because I have never been able to use them!

13:05:58linuxstbIIRC, Llorean has used e200tool with vmware.
13:06:28linuxstbAlthough maybe recovery mode and manufacturers mode are different - I think he was using recovery mode.
13:06:44O112358linuxstb: i was just curious if rockbox used some fluctuating value from somewhere to generate the numbers, i'll see if i can find some information on the algorithm
13:07:18scorchelinuxstb: it is a matter of going into recovery mode right after manufacturers mode....with vmware, it mounts in windows, unmounts, then is made available to vmware
13:07:20linuxstbO112358: No, it's a pseudo random number algorithm, seeded based on the current time.
13:08:15O112358oh, thankyou
13:09:12linuxstbscorche: Maybe a table for all the downloads would be clearer - e.g. with two columns: "Download link", "Destination folder and filename"
13:10:08scorchelinuxstb: i thought about that, but due to the renaming (of pp5022.mi4) and unzipping, i think having it as a step by step is a bit better
13:10:34linuxstbscorche: And I assume linux live CDs would give the user access to their Windows partitions? So they could do the downloading in Windows.
13:10:51linuxstbAlso, only the e200tool parts need Linux - the rest could be done in the comfort of Windows.
13:10:55scorchelinuxstb: yes, they typically do
13:11:45linuxstbi.e. 1) Unzip to the device, and copy PP5022.mi4 and OF.mi4; 2) Boot into linux and do the e200tool stuff.
13:11:45scorchelinuxstb: no...the recovery mode things need to be in linux as well, as the device will reboot immediately after using e200tool
13:12:28amiconnscorche: Why do you need to download the OF again for E200R? I would expect it to be already present on the device...
13:12:53linuxstbamiconn: It's overwritten by the Rockbox bootloader install - which is basically using the OF to replace the main firmware.
13:13:10linuxstb(sansapatcher does this for normal E200s)
13:13:15amiconnCan't it be renamed first?
13:13:26linuxstbIt's copied into the hidden firmware partition
13:13:35linuxstb(which isn't accessible via USB on the R)
13:13:59linuxstbSo it only exists on the user's hidden partition, which we can't backup (with current tools)
13:14:30scorchelinuxstb: hrm...i suppose that process could work as well, as long as the user doesnt mind seeing "load main image fail"
13:16:49linuxstbWhy would you see that message?

13:17:09scorcheafter the device rebooted from updating the image
13:17:20scorchewell, updating the mi4
13:17:34linuxstbWhich mi4?
13:17:39amiconnI wonder what hardware is initialised in manufacturer mode. Perhaps we could load a binary that patches the existing bootloader on the hidden partition, based of existing rockbox drivers
13:17:50linuxstbamiconn: Yes, that's the planned attack.

13:18:36 Quit Jeton ("ChatZilla [Firefox]") i wrong in assuming the device would update that as soon as it is disconnected and would reboot into "load main image failed" ?
13:19:01linuxstbe200tool uploads a small ARM application to the Sansa which is executed. It then communicates with this app via usb to perform the various different functions. My plan would be to replace that small app with an app that does the required patching of the hidden partition.
13:19:13linuxstbSo no communication would be needed.
13:20:08amiconnI was asking for the communication in order to get feedback while developing (as the lcd doesn't seem to be initialised judging from the manufacturer mode description)
13:21:18linuxstbThat would mean incorporating MrH's USB code. But yes, it might be useful to do during development if the LCD doesn't work.
13:22:24linuxstbscorche: The e200tool process could be done without any Rockbox files being needed - all it does is patch the OF bootloader (BL_) to accept unsigned mi4s from the user.
13:22:45linuxstbscorche: Once that patching has been done, the user could copy the PP5022.mi4 file in Windows, and the Sansa should perform a normal firmware upgrade.

14:16:10JdGordonlinuxstb: re the e200tool coding.. id be happy to do it.. but last time i tried compiling so it could copy the binary on I failed
14:17:03linuxstbYou'll need to build an app similar to the Rockbox bootloader, and (IIUC), link it to execute from 0x40004000.
14:17:22linuxstbThe resulting "bootloader.bin" is what you would make e200tool upload instead of arm_code.c
14:18:29*scorche assumes he gets an okay on the installation page and goes about making it official
14:18:36XavierGrdischarging it now with the multimeter volt meter, slow but steady
14:18:52linuxstbJdGordon: You would also need to modify firmware/target/arm/crt0-pp-bl.S to remove the code that copies the bootloader into IRAM - as it will already be there.
14:19:36JdGordon.. that part is beyond me... but if someone else does that, I can do the boring bit of actually getting it to be useful
14:19:38linuxstbThe aim would be to get an app running with a working flash driver so it can modify the contents of the firmware partition.
14:20:35JdGordonyeah, I was thinking about porting sansaptacher to a plugin anyway, so it would be mostly the same stuff I tihnk?
14:21:16linuxstbIt would be simpler than that, at least in the first version - just modifying one instruction (4 bytes) in the bootloader stored in the hidden partition.
14:21:44linuxstbAlthough yes, a more advanced version could incorporate sansapatcher like abilities.
14:21:49 Join n1s [0] (
14:22:28JdGordonI assume there is a version string/value somewhere we can check against so we dont accidently brick a bootloader version we arnt expecting?
14:22:39JdGordonor we find that out later
14:22:43linuxstbMaybe, or we would checksum the bootloader
14:23:18linuxstbOr as we're dealing with sector-level reads/writes, we could just checksum the sector we're modifying.
14:23:18scorcheBagder / LinusN: around?
14:23:55scorcheCan you change the caption for the Sandisk - Installation/Removal forum please?
14:24:11JdGordonlinuxstb: I wouldnt trust that... that way is more possible to get a false positive than a checksum of the whole thing, or a version string
14:25:12linuxstbJdGordon: What wouldn't you trust - the checksum of a single sector?
14:25:24LinusNscorche: to "e200 and e200R"?
14:25:38LinusNor what?
14:25:40linuxstbIMO it's even better than the checksum - if that part of the bootloader is identical, the existing patch should work.
14:25:47scorche"Sansa e200, e200R"
14:25:50linuxstb^the full checksum
14:26:11LinusNscorche: done
14:26:18JdGordonBagder: there was an updaed e200tool recently wasnt there? is the new source avilable somewhere?
14:26:24linuxstbJdGordon: Sorry, I meant that a single-sector checksum could be more useful than either checking the version of a full-file checksum.

14:27:09JdGordonthis sort of thing id say check all 3 just to be 100% certain we dont break it
14:27:26JdGordonbut first thing is to get some code running.....
14:27:40linuxstbYou mean perform a full-file checksum _and_ a single sector checksum? ;)
14:27:51JdGordonno, duh :p
14:28:02JdGordonjust the version and one of the checksums
14:28:05JdGordon... i dunno....
14:28:45linuxstbAs you say, these are details for later - first thing is to get the code working.
14:29:24JdGordonalso modifing e200tool to read in a file instead of having it compiled in would be useful
14:30:03linuxstbThe first test I would do would be this: 1) Change ". = IRAMORIG" to ". = IRAMORIG + 0x4000" in firmware/ (that will link the bootloader to run from 0x40004000)
14:30:57linuxstbDelete lines 57-81 inclusive from firmware/target/arm/crt0-pp-bl.S (that does the bootloader relocation to IRAM).
14:31:20linuxstbThen build a bootloader and upload it to the e200 in manufacturing mode instead of e200code[]
14:31:29linuxstb^it = bootloader.bin
14:31:39linuxstbAnd see what happens...
14:32:46JdGordon... isnt 0x40004000 where e200tool puts its usb code?
14:33:17JdGordonbut then if we try copying code there once its running wont it overright the running program?
14:33:27linuxstbWhat running program?

14:34:42linuxstbThis approach makes us less dependent on MrH's code.

14:41:02*scorche is quite pleased with today
14:41:38 Join rift [0] (
14:42:14linuxstbJdGordon: 1) It uploads arm_code.c; 2) It communicates with arm_code.c and sends commands and data to it via usb, and also receives data back from it via usb. Think of arm_code.c as being a server app running on the Sansa.
14:42:56linuxstbAll of that is MrH's work, and it's far more complicated than we need for a normal Rockbox install.
14:43:29JdGordonso your saying arm_code isnt needed at all? e2t can copy arbitrary code onto it and run it without that on the sansa?
14:43:29linuxstbSo my suggestion is to upload our own code (the bootloader.bin I described how to build), and run that directly instead of arm_code.c
14:43:37linuxstbJdGordon: Exactly.
14:43:48amiconnlinuxstb: reboot-to-usb *is* implemented on the H10 (as I had to learn)
14:44:00JdGordonOh, OK... I thought arm_code was actually required....
14:44:46linuxstbamiconn: You should tell petur...
14:44:48amiconnIt just works inverse to all other targets. You have to hold Select to reboot into usb. Not holding it just goes to usb power mode
14:44:57GodEater_JdGordon: only if you want to do all the other clever stuff e2t does
14:44:58JdGordonsansa doesnt reboot to usb except in the bootloader
14:45:14amiconnThis is to ease things on H10 MTP models
14:45:25amiconn(as barrywardell told me)
14:45:41linuxstbI think I remember now - it's the same button used by the OF to choose UMS mode?
14:45:53linuxstbSo you press it in Rockbox, and then keep it pressed?
14:45:55amiconnYes, the so-called "UMS trick"

14:47:25JdGordonok, cool

14:47:51linuxstbYou could also strip out all of the unused code - so you end up with a very minimal e200tool.c

16:24:43hcs`sam`: yeah
16:24:47amiconnI mean, flashing out bits via a LED
16:26:01JdGordonso, how much of the e200tool.c am I allowd to copy into a new file and still call it my own? or do i have to literally rewrite every line?
16:26:28`sam`hcs, ok, the last patch applied cleanly once i took out the SUBDIR part at the end, i just made that edit manually
16:27:03`sam`hcs, by last patch i mean mww21
16:27:36linuxstbJdGordon: I would start by stripping out all the code you don't need, and see what's left... And then worry about how we're going to deal with the (C) issue later.
16:27:44hcs`sam`: ok, as noted there weren't any important changes
16:27:51linuxstbProbably by the time you've finished, the code won't be very similar to e200tool anyway.
16:29:04`sam`hcs, do you know if anybody has a torrent for the wikipedia dump? i'm using wget right now, but it's goign to take a while

17:22:08bluebrotherno, it's not. At least not in terms of GPL
17:22:28 Quit Zagor ("Client exiting")
17:23:08kugelwhat license is it?
17:23:29bluebrotherand to be able to include it in rbutil we need it to be GPL (or something compatible)
17:23:56bluebrotherthe zip doesn't contain a license file. The sources just say (c) MrH
17:24:33delYsidthats very non-free then...
17:25:02kugeli have licensing in my advanced informatics atm
17:25:31kugelthe teacher says, if there is no license, then there is nothing to break
17:25:45kugeldunno about the (c), but it must be listed
17:25:47rasherkugel: There's also no permission to redistribute.
17:25:48bluebrotherwell, that's an opinion.
17:26:34rasherEither you misunderstood your teacher, or he's a very confused man
17:26:43kugelyou can only break licenses which acutally exist
17:26:44bluebrotheras the tool is (c) MrH he can decide what's allowed to do with it. Unless he allows integrating it it's not allowed.
17:27:02rasherkugel: If there's no license, standard copyright protections apply
17:27:05delYsidkugel: no, thats not correct.
17:27:12kugelbut license != (c) thats why im not sure
17:27:13bluebrotherplus, the GPL doesn't allow us to integrate code with a non-compatible license. "No license" is definitely not compatible
17:27:52bluebrotheras putting it under GPL would be relicensing the code which we are definitely not allowed to do.
17:28:32GodEater_because we don't own the copyright

17:31:19rasherkugel: you seem to not grasp that "no license" means "standard copyright protections apply"
17:31:30rasherWhich means we can't do *anything* with the code
17:31:38kugeli didnt say that
17:31:52kugel"dunno about the (c), but it must be listed"
17:31:56kugelthats what i said

18:02:48Lloreanwebguest23: The first page I linked you clearly says " you copy an original firmware mi4 file to the device and disconnect it"
18:02:54alienbiker99for the e200r, can you still use the r firmware or does putting rockbox turn it vanilla?
18:02:57LloreanOut of curiosity, how does that not answer your question?
18:03:32linuxstbwebguest23: What was the last step of the install instructions you did before your Sansa stopped functioning?
18:03:53linuxstbalienbiker99: You can keep the R firmware. The Rockbox install method patches the Sansa bootloader so that it will load Rockbox.
18:04:13webguest23i copyed rockbox to the sansa
18:04:38alienbiker99oh i see, because i kind of want to test the rhapsody function, but i might want to get rid of it

18:44:25linuxstb_amiconn: Only the Sansa
18:44:38amiconnAny specific reason?
18:45:03linuxstb_Just that JdGordon (IIRC) decided to implement it...
18:45:06Lloreanamiconn: More or less just the way things happened, if I understand.
18:45:15n1samiconn: I had partial sucess with gcc 4.3 for coldfire, using m68k-elf-ld 2.16 I get a booting rockbox that plays music but most button actions, rtc, battery reading are broken
18:45:19LloreanSansa Rockbox doesn't reboot from Rockbox into the OF, but the bootloader does.
18:45:20amiconnI mean, as long as we don't have usb support in rockbox, it would save time if the bootloaders detect usb
18:46:29linuxstb_Although the Sansa is different to the ipods - the bootloader starts the OF if USB is inserted. On the ipods, we would want to start the emergency disk mode app in flash (but some ipods may benefit from the OF being loaded...)
18:46:56amiconnRight now if I start with the ipod switched off and want to transfer something, it boots into rockbox, detects usb and then reboots
18:46:57Lloreanlinuxstb_: Even with how slow USB mode is on Nano, I don't think booting the OF is preferable.
18:47:26LloreanOnce in the OF you need a key combination to reboot back to RB, while on the Sansas it behaves more like disk mode on the iPods.
18:47:31amiconnDisk access is also slow on H10, btw

18:52:06linuxstb_Ideally we would directly execute the Apple disk mode app that's in flash - i.e. copy it to RAM and execute it. I experimented with doing that in Rockbox, but I think it will work better in the bootloader (no Rolo issues)...
18:52:30linuxstb_Only question is if enabling the USB hardware will upset the OF...
18:53:21amiconnThe diskmode app rolo didn't work for me
18:55:25linuxstb_I've since discovered that the Apple bootloader is writing some info into IRAM before starting the OF (or our bootloader). I experimented a little with saving and then restoring this info and that seems to make the diskmode app start reliably for me.
18:55:40linuxstb_I'll see what happens in the bootloader... I agree it would be a nice feature.

21:17:19LloreanYou'd have to write a very long and detailed error message

21:17:42DefineByteway too much for a temporary thing, i'm sure
21:17:48Llorean"This function will remove any files synced with iTunes, the photos folder whether you created it or the Apple firmware did, the notes folder for the same reason..."
21:18:13LloreanWhat would you look for in terms of contents? Any files not in a specific list?
21:18:36LloreanDo we check to see if their config file for the apple firmware has changed, in case they've changed the language in it and want to preserve that for example?
21:19:06LloreanThere's just a wide range of complications that can be avoided by saying "There's no real reason to do it, the delete function exists."
21:19:08DefineByteor just "warning: this action may cause you to lose all your files". anyone who doesn't know what they were doing would probably be too scared to procede. ^^

21:22:12DefineBytegodo call
21:22:20xDragonforce16xok thanks pixelma
21:22:21LloreanDefineByte: Doesn't mean they won't see it in their file browser when copying files over, or anything.
21:22:29LloreanDefineByte: It's a lie, whether they *know* there are other files or not.
21:22:37DefineByteaccortding to you they're using iTunes
21:22:46LloreanNo, according to me they MAY be using iTunes.
21:23:10BigBambiBesides if it says this will delete all your files noone will use DiskTid and we might as well remove it
21:23:25DefineByteso you're saying some users may copy theeir music using the file browser into ipod_control. hmmm
21:23:33LloreanBut it is absolutely impossible for that feature, properly functioning, to delete all their files. It may delete all the files they know about, but that is not 'All their files'
21:23:36DefineByteno one else would care about it being deleted
21:23:44LloreanDefineByte: You've misinterpreted me badly
21:23:48LloreanPlease, read carefully what I've said.
21:23:57DefineByteit would delete all 'their' files. :)
21:24:08*BigBambi votes to end this silly argument about a silly idea
21:24:11DefineByteoh i read it. :) thanks
21:24:18LloreanYou choose to redefine "their" to mean something other than "the files belonging to them"?
21:24:25LloreanOr do you think their copy of Rockbox doesn't belong to them?
21:24:46LloreanI'm saying, do not suggest lying, or even misleading, our users in my presence again. Okay?
21:24:50DefineBytei'm thinking of the users who will actually have files in ipod_control
21:25:12DefineBytenot heard that definition of lying before. :D
21:25:23Llorean"Telling them something untrue?"
21:25:26LloreanI'd say that's a common definition.
21:25:27BigBambiPeople who use iTunes to sync yet copy pictures/movies via the filetree?
21:25:31LloreanThey own their copy of Rockbox

21:25:36LloreanThe feature will not delete their copy of Rockbox
21:25:38DefineBytefrom the perspective of the user, it is true
21:25:44LloreanErgo, saying it "May delete all their files" it's untrue.
21:25:47LloreanDefineByte: Not every user.
21:26:23LloreanYou're choosing to say "We can tell them something not *strictly* true, because they won't know better"
21:26:42LloreanThis should never, EVER be an argument for telling users misleading statements.
21:26:46DefineByteHow about: "warning: this action coild delete all your content". :)
21:27:04LloreanThat's a bit better.
21:27:05DefineByte'could' being the operative word
21:27:12BigBambiand content

21:32:09DefineByteanother thought, the 'no playlist to resume' message when you press play after finishing playback. why doesn't rockbox restart the playlist instead?
21:33:04DefineBytei know it' still their, it seems strange not to do that.
21:33:17DefineByteit's/ there/

21:36:21 Part Llorean
21:36:51BigMacHey, does the EQ adjust based upon what genre you are listening to, and if not how feasible would it be to check the id3 tag for the genre
21:37:25GodEaterBigBambi: No it doesn't. Pretty feasible - but someone would need to do it.
21:37:31GodEaterBigMac even
21:37:38linuxstbNo, rockbox can't change config based on current audio files.
21:38:03BigMacOk adding that to my list for later this year
21:38:04GodEaterthere's no reason why it couldn't though. But as I say - someone would have to write it
21:38:09DefineByteseems a lot of people want an automatic way to change configs
21:38:29BigMacI thought that would be a decent idea, would anyone else like to see that implemented?
21:38:44GodEaternot personally
21:38:48GodEaterbut I'm not against it either
21:38:50DefineBytelike, say, when headphones are detected and the like

21:39:35GodEaterah ok
21:39:43BigMacGodEater: Well you are a developer right? I am asking in a manner as to how likely it would be that my patch would ever get committed
21:40:05DefineBytedoes it matter if you find it useful yourself?

21:40:28GodEaterask linuxstb :)
21:40:44BigMacDefineByte: Yes, but it takes a lot of time for a person to keep a patch insync while it waits to be comitted
21:41:12GodEateror even if you just wish to keep using it with current builds yourself and never intend for it to be commited
21:41:14DefineByteothers will keep it in sync if they find it useful. i do
21:41:14GodEaterit can be a trial
21:41:38GodEaterit would be unwise to rely on that
21:41:41nardulHow does rockbox read tags? I edited tags on a file but it remains untagged. It's just a normal .mp3, and my linux box see's it as a new tag, but even if i delete the rockbox database, nothing happens. It's still untagged.
21:42:17DefineBytewhat format is the file? what tagging scheme are you using?
21:42:21 Join Rob222241 [0] (
21:42:38DefineByteoh mp3 m,issed that :D
21:42:39BigMacI would rather not waste time on something like this if it has no chance of ever being committed DefineByte
21:42:43linuxstbBigMac: The main rule for getting a patch committed is that it implements a useful feature in the right way. To know if both your idea and how you plan to implement it pass those criteria, it's best to discuss it on IRC before you start coding. That way you also get other devs interested, so there's more chance of someone committing it.
21:42:44DefineBytewhat tagging format?
21:43:13nardulDefineByte, Not sharp on tagging, it's apprently both v1 and v2, using id3tag to modify it.
21:43:39DefineBytetry just v2 if you can
21:43:43BigMaclinuxstb: Well will do, but I have to pick up c again and pretty much relearn it before I start it sometime in january-february
21:44:02nardulDefineByte, Only version 2? Would that change anything? I'll try it
21:44:52linuxstbnardul: Ignoring the database, if you browse to the file in the file browser and play it, do the tags appear in the WPS?
21:45:01DefineBytecan't hurt to try! (don't i sound full of confidence?)
21:45:31nardullinuxstb, No they don't. It's a podcast i downloaded from the BBC, it shouldn't have anything to do with it correct?
21:45:42nardulDefineByte, You're just a light of assurance :)
21:46:23nardulOh, i love rockbox btw, i just need more batterytime on my ipod video :9
21:46:59nardulDefineByte, uhm
21:47:00n1sBigMac: I would say that's a pretty strange feature actually, as IMO (and I know others agree) the EQ is for compensating for sound "coloration" caused by your equipment. And it would be quite difficult to implement it properly with several of our formats supporting freeform genre tags
21:47:05DefineBytei remember having files that were in multiple formats and only the ones in v1 would show up. converted all of them to v2 and voila
21:47:09nardulDefineByte, it worked ...:/
21:47:17DefineBytemight not be the same with you of course
21:47:30nardulI'll be damned, thanks a bundle :)
21:47:33DefineBytereally? that was quick
21:47:39nardul yeah, it was!
21:47:56nardulThe major part was having to wait for it rebooting
21:47:58BigMacn1s: Right. right, didn't even think of that
21:48:03DefineByteis that a bug or what should it work?
21:48:30nardulDefineByte, If you're asking me, then i have no idea.
21:48:47 Join lids [0] (
21:48:52DefineBytei'm asking anyone who might know the answer :D
21:48:53BigMacn1s: I was just thinking of how arduous it is to switch eq settings everytime you switch to a different genre
21:49:36nardulDefineByte, Would you happen to know how the bookmarks work, well, how to make them work?
21:49:50DefineBytemaybe you could apply EQ to the files before putting them on the DAP. would save battery too. :)
21:50:28n1sBigMac: As I don't use the EQ at all it doesn't bother me so much :-D but I really can't understand why you would switch with different kinds of music but I guess that's just me...
21:50:52DefineBytei'd love to say that i knew all about the bookmarking feature but i've never used it, sorry
21:51:09nardulOkay, just a long shot, thank you very much
21:52:03nardulI recently read that first and second gen. ipods had their battery runtime optimized, is anything happening on the later models?
21:52:14 Join trax382 [0] (i=0cca6632@gateway/web/cgi-irc/
21:52:27DefineByteif you implemented it in such a way that it would work with headphone detection too i'd likely keep it in sync for you.
21:52:43n1snardul: that was a thing specific to the wheels on those models and does not affect newer ipods
21:52:55trax382I've got a fresh install of rockbox on my ipod photo and I'm getting aborts every time I try to initialize the database. Any ideas?
21:52:59DefineBytethey were reverse engineered by amiconn
21:53:10trax382data abort at 0004551c
21:53:18BigMacn1s: because there are different settings that produce a better sounding song based on the genre it uses and some people listen to many genres. For instance, you wouldn't want to use your classical music settings for metal now would you?
21:53:21narduln1s, DefineByte Ah, okay, thank you. Will that happen to the newer models? :)

21:54:31nardulhehe, okay.

21:54:56nardulI can't afford sending him one, but i wouldn't mind contributing to a fund :)
21:55:05amiconnDefineByte: I have several PP502x targets
21:55:13trax382n1s: I did. I initally patched with the linux verison, then tried with the windows patcher. Still doens't work
21:55:25DefineBytei guess you don't want another one then! :D
21:55:34linuxstbtrax382: Have you checked your filesystem for errors?
21:55:35amiconnI'll probably work on the battery consumption issue, but there are several other things I'll do first

21:55:53narduln1s, :)
21:56:05DefineBytedo you know if anyone's working on the 5G wheel driver?
21:56:14trax382linuxstb: well, I just ran a chkdsk on it from windows. Didn't seem to find anything.
21:56:26amiconnDefineByte: What about it? It's working fine...
21:56:26pixelmathere seem to be a few reports of data aborts while initialising the database on Ipods - just today in the forums
21:56:29nardulamiconn, Ok, no rush or pressure, but awesome!
21:56:31n1strax382: could you try adding a part of you music and trying again, it might be caused by rockbox doing something stupid while reading a file
21:56:44DefineBytehmm, llorean said it wasn't
21:56:59DefineBytein the wheel acceleration thread in the forums
21:58:00n1sBigMac: I actually use the same settings for Heavy metal and classic music and for all other music I listen too but I guess we are all different, I am however against that feature you suggested, but I don't exactly have a veto around here so you could try to get some other dev's opinions
21:58:04trax382n1s: I've tried with just one song, still doesn't work :(
21:58:38linuxstbtrax382: Are all your songs in the same format? Did you try a different song?
21:58:41amiconnDefineByte: The wheel itself works fine. Dunno about that acceleration stuff
21:58:55amiconnI'll probably look into that as well, but it's very low-pri for me
21:59:05DefineBytesomething about posistion information i guess

22:00:16trax382linuxstb: sure do, I was hoping I could keep my itunes library though.
22:00:29nardulDefineByte, amiconn, the scroll wheel is a bit slow, and most of the time it lags behind halfway through my bowie collection. But it's not a showstopper.
22:00:38jdongrandom question on the recent E200R developments.... so is a rockboxed E200R able to dual-boot OF, like the standard e200?
22:00:47DefineBytenot sure that's a driver issue
22:00:54amiconnI know how fast the scroll wheel is, also on G5
22:00:58jdongI tried reading through the forum thread on it, but I died a little inside...

22:02:16jdonggood work rockbox team, btw :)
22:02:21DefineByteis scrolling only slow while music is playing??
22:02:43nardulDefineByte, Can't tell, i'll check
22:03:21DefineByteif it is, you may wish to look into lowering your CPU usage
22:03:32DefineBytethere are various ways you could do that
22:04:21pixelma2 people reported "data abort at 00046298" on their 30GB Ipod Videos just today
22:04:32pixelmawhen initialising the database
22:04:39linuxstbpixelma: I wonder if it's related to today's ID3 change?
22:04:42trax382I guess I could try an older build
22:05:00nardulDefineByte, It think it is, yes, hard to tell with such a short test though. How might i go on and do that?
22:05:17DefineByteare you using the software eq?
22:05:21linuxstbtrax382: It's worth trying.
22:05:22pixelmamaybe... someone could try an older build - maybe even the daily does
22:05:26DefineBytethat uses a lot
22:05:52nardulDefineByte, No i'm not
22:05:54trax382roger, I'll try a week ago
22:05:58DefineBytealso, if you re-encode your music in musepack that will save a lot
22:06:14DefineByteas will disabling dithering, if you're using it
22:06:17nardulmusepack? How's about .ogg?
22:06:24linuxstbtrax382: Were your mp3 files encoded by itunes?
22:06:29DefineBytewhat are you using at the moment?
22:06:41nardul.ogg files only.
22:06:43trax382linuxstb: maybe 7 out of 4000. Not many for sure.
22:06:55DefineBytemusepack uses about 20% less CPU
22:06:55jdongDefineByte: does dithering really use that much CPU? I'm pretty sure my boost ratio remained relatively unaffected with dithering on/off
22:07:12linuxstbtrax382: But they were transfered by itunes?
22:07:14jdong(sansa, but still PP502x)
22:07:15DefineByteback when i checked it used quite a bit
22:07:29trax382linuxstb: , yes
22:07:37DefineBytecould have changed since then of course :)
22:07:40jdongcurrently the only thing that I've seen murder CPU is the software EQ
22:07:50jdongon my iPod that just kills scrolling
22:08:01trax382I'm loading the 8-27 daily build. I'll reset settings and report.
22:08:13DefineBytei was amazed at how big a difference there was between ogg vorbis and musepack
22:08:20linuxstbtrax382: Then it's definitely worth testing an older build - there was a change today to how itunes tags in mp3 files are processed...
22:08:22 Quit atsea- (Remote closed the connection)
22:08:31DefineBytewent from 59-55% to below 30%
22:08:34nardulDefineByte, hmm, i don't feel like reencoding my entire library though
22:08:42jdongDefineByte: yeah, musepack was designed to be easy to decode
22:08:51DefineBytethat's understandable :)
22:09:02jdongDefineByte: heck even old fashioned mp3 decodes faster than ogg
22:09:12jdongthough that's mostly offset by the need to use higher-bitrate mp3's
22:09:37DefineByteor you just suck up the quality loss
22:09:37trax382linuxstb: that was it, it's loading now. Thank you!!
22:09:41nardulDefineByte, The software EQ was on, and it's scrolls better no,w thanks :)
22:09:56DefineBytegood to hear> :)
22:09:59trax382linuxstb: if that occured today I'll roll back to yesterdays daily.
22:10:06nardulI'm sure that'll help my batterytime aswell though
22:10:21DefineByteprobably not as much as you'd think
22:10:25nardulAlthough i can live with 6 hours these days
22:10:28linuxstbtrax382: Could you make one of your files available for testing? I don't think many (if any) Rockbox devs use itunes...
22:10:52pixelmatrax382: could you try today's daily? If linuxstb is right then the change that causes the problem was committed later
22:10:58DefineBytethe drain is so high at the moment (for reasons unknowns) that the CPU isn't really the biggest draw
22:11:12jdongnardul: turning off the EQ will at least double your battery life :)
22:11:18trax382pixelma: yes, one second. and sure linuxstb, I'll need a place to upload or e-mail though.
22:11:28DefineByteno it won't xD
22:11:33nardulDefineByte, jdong There's some discrepancy here :)
22:11:39DefineByteseems so
22:11:45jdongon my iPod it comes close to doubling.
22:11:49nardulDefineByte, I know it's the soddy hardware, but thanks
22:11:52DefineBytenaturally i am always right ;)
22:11:53linuxstbtrax382: Are you using a real IRC client, or the webclient?
22:11:58jdongit's a double-death with the iPod
22:12:03jdongthe EQ will slow down *rebuffering*
22:12:06DefineBytewhat were you getting before/after?
22:12:07jdongwhich keeps the disk spun up a lot longer
22:12:21jdonglike 3hrs before, 6.5hrs after
22:12:33trax382linuxstb: webclient
22:12:39jdongrebuffering was the killer
22:12:45nardulI get alot more than that even with it on
22:12:47jdongtook around 2 minutes to refill the buffer
22:12:47DefineByteokay, maybe it will. i din't know you got 3 hours with eq on!
22:12:52nardul6 hours normally
22:13:04nardulLets see tomorrow without eq on
22:13:07 Quit el_MArko ("( :: NoNameScript 4.02 :: )")
22:13:11jdongwell anyway, we can all agree it significantly lowers battery life :)
22:13:49trax382Will reset settings clear the previous database cache?
22:13:50DefineBytealthough 3 hours out of the iPod's designed battery life isn't much
22:14:13DefineBytei suppose the sansa is similar
22:14:15nardulneither is 6 :)
22:14:15jdongDefineByte: it's an aging ipod though; I'm pretty sure the battery is on its way out.
22:14:27jdongDefineByte: sansa's battery life is quite good IMO
22:14:38linuxstbtrax382: No, the settings are separate to the db
22:14:39DefineByteeven with eq?
22:14:53jdongDefineByte: havne't actually tried that. I will try it soon though
22:14:54trax382linuxstb: the daily reproduces the same error
22:15:08jdongDefineByte: I'd expect the impact to be less, due to less cost of accessing ATA
22:15:27trax382linuxstb: and I'm referring to this one:
22:15:28DefineBytei'd love to run a load of battery benches on my iPod but i can't face lowring the life of the battery

22:19:30trax382n1s, unless you just changed something, the first file I tried was a current and it had the error
22:19:33trax382but if you want me to do it again I can.
22:19:34 Quit Rondom ("Ex-Chat")
22:20:13n1strax382: so the first you tried was a _current_ and _not_ a daily?
22:20:48jdongwait, there's current builds?
22:20:55n1strax382: ok, then ther's notheing more to test
22:21:03amiconnAnyone familiar with regex around?
22:21:16trax382n1s: roger, hope I've been of some help.
22:21:21jdongamiconn: err... how gruelsome regex?
22:21:22n1sjdong: yes, click the "current build" link on the left on the webpage
22:21:25DefineBytecan't you use a regex builder?
22:21:26trax382and I once more certainly appreciate the help.
22:21:36pixelmadoes someone know where the voice files are gone?
22:21:42amiconnHow do I make perl regex ignore case?
22:21:45jdongn1s: oh cool
22:21:50xDragonforce16xwhy is it that whenever i try to play a song it freezes? i have the current build, downloaded it today and put it on 10 mins ago and am still having the same problem
22:21:51jdongamiconn: should just be /i
22:21:53trax382pixelma: I found them on the daily page
22:21:56amiconnah :)
22:22:00jdongI think :)
22:22:08Bagder /i it is
22:22:09amiconnCan that be combined, i.e. /ig ?

22:22:41nardulJust one more question, is there a key i can hold on a 5G ipod to stop it from reeboting into disk mode and just charge when i isnert a USB plug?
22:22:47jdongnardul: MENU
22:22:53jdongnardul: although there's catches
22:23:02narduljdong, Thanks and go on?
22:23:06jdongnardul: sometimes it'll randomly catch USB and reboot due to the host reprobing
22:23:12amiconnI knew how to do it in vbscript, but not in perl... some people may find that odd ;)
22:23:15DefineBytehold menu i think
22:23:18jdongnardul: and also it cannot pull the full 500mA current and will charge horribly slowly
22:23:39DefineBytei'm very slow
22:23:40n1sxDragonforce16x: how old is your bootloader
22:23:54narduljdong, It's okay, it'd mostly just be for lying around
22:23:57nardulThanks alot!
22:23:57xDragonforce16xhmmm, im not sure, ould that cause a problem?
22:24:11narduljdong, And the reprobing sounds more like a windows problem
22:24:18linuxstbjdong: Are you using a current build? The random reboot should have been fixed today.
22:24:19jdongnardul: nah all OS'es suffer from it
22:24:22n1sxDragonforce16x: when did you install it?
22:24:29jdonglinuxstb: I just noticed that commit...
22:24:31n1sand yes it could cause a problem
22:24:34narduljdong, okay, thanks. Night

22:25:09pixelmaI can't find them on the page that page in my browser, even though I refreshed the page a few times (refreshing the cache) and even try in a different browser...
22:25:10xDragonforce16xim not sure, but just to be safe im gonna go reinstall the current one, whether it actually be new or not, idont know
22:25:22xDragonforce16xim using the current build, yes
22:25:44n1sxDragonforce16x: do this, install a daily build from today and test again

22:28:15DefineByteah, found llorean's quote: "No, it won't work on the iPod without some work being done to the iPod wheel driver, as it doesn't provide the right information (if I understand correctly)."
22:28:28DefineByteis that accurate?

22:28:59jdongI wouldn't doubt llorean :)
22:29:12DefineBytei'm predisposed
22:29:20amiconnThere are no voice files for download on the daily build page
22:30:00DefineBytethe voice file generation is done on a sperate computer right?
22:30:09n1sDefineByte: I remember jhMikeS saying that (he wrote the acceleration code) so it should be accurate

22:32:26DefineBytecould the page say that?
22:32:40Bagderin theory, yes
22:32:43n1sxDragonforce16x: there seems to be a bug with id3 handling in the current build
22:32:53xDragonforce16xn1s: all i did redownload and reinstall the bootloader and it seems to work... for now lol
22:33:03amiconnBagder: Then I wonder how trax382 found them today...
22:33:15xDragonforce16xn1s: oh ok
22:33:16n1sxDragonforce16x: aha, then you probably had a very old bootloader
22:33:24DefineBytei've noticed commits missing from the front page occasionally too

22:33:54xDragonforce16xyeah i think my last bootloader was from around a year ago when i first discovered rockbox lol
22:34:09DefineBytea lot has changed snice then
22:34:19amiconnAh, hmm, same time zone

22:37:13jdongthough on my sansa mpegplayer is bliss
22:37:14DefineByteit's the best way at the moment
22:37:35DefineBytethe screen is too small for me though

22:38:53DefineBytepractically HD! ;)
22:39:05jdongat least close enough to DVD quality that one doesn't feel too bad :)
22:39:43DefineBytehey, I've watched movies on my mobile before (174x220 if i recall)
22:39:57jdongyeah it works :)
22:40:14jdongI have a cheap RockChip player that takes 220x176 xvid avi's
22:40:24jdongthat served me well for a year
22:40:33jdongheck its battery lasted over 6 hours watching video!
22:40:38DefineByteah 176, that's probably it

22:48:54DefineByteif something goes wrong with an unsupported build your first step is to install a daily build and see if the problem goes away
22:49:13DefineBytethat's it really
22:49:39xDragonforce16xdo the unsupported builds still have stuff like mpegplayer?
22:49:41krazykitDefineByte, IMO, the sansa also feels better in my hands than the nano. i don't feel like i'm gonna break it just by using it
22:49:44DefineByteand don't post bugs you have with an unsupported build outside of that nuild's thread

22:52:58DefineBytewould a feature in RBUtil that copied info about the current installed build be useful (revision, supported or not)? that way you could tell a user on the forums to run said command paste it into the forum and go from there. might save some headaches.
22:56:32DefineByteokay, either the idea was too stunning to fully come to terms with or everyone thinks it's stupid (I guess). :D
22:56:55amiconnI would prefer the nano if I had to choose. The sansa is just too big for a flash player

23:27:16Kalthareplugin is missing entirely, but it's in the SUBDIRS file, so build fails.
23:27:38n1sKalthare: missing update of FILES probably, will fix
23:29:16linuxstbDefineByte: In that case, rbutil could tell the user the bootloader was out of date and offer to update it....
23:29:55DefineBytethat assumes the user would automatically agree to that. i'm not so sure
23:30:30Kaltharen1s: cool, just wanted to let you know. In the meantime, I'll get the missing files from svn.
23:31:17DefineBytemaybr you're right. i guess if it wasn't working at all they would probably update.
23:31:35linuxstbDefineByte: Or more likely, rbutil would refuse to install the new build until the bootloader was upgraded.

23:31:46DefineBytestill, for more minor problems they might not

23:32:06Bagderthere are
23:32:17n1sah, you are right
23:32:26DefineBytei'm not only thinking of bootloader problems though and there will still be a way to update manually right?
23:32:34n1sare those new, or were they always there?
23:32:37DefineByteprobably well hidden i guess
23:33:15linuxstbDefineByte: Of course, but then rbutil wouldn't be able to display the info you wanted to paste into the forum thread...

23:33:50DefineBytei was thiking of RBUtil reading the iPod while it's connected to get the info
23:34:06rasherBagder: Why the need for the FILES stuff anyway? Can't you just tar up the entirey sourcetree?
23:34:11linuxstbDefineByte: In which case, rbutil could detect the installed bootloader...
23:34:34DefineByteright, don't get your point.
23:34:39Bagderrasher: because FILES makes it easier to produce a tarball in any case
23:34:51Bagderindependent of left-overs and cvs/svn files around etc
23:35:19rasherBagder: speaking of, there were some emacs leftovers in the tarball..
23:35:21linuxstbDefineByte: My point is that if rbutil can detect problems and write that info to a log file, it can also act on that info and prompt the user to fix the problem.
23:35:36DefineBytehow would it detect problems?
23:35:45n1sdoes the frontpage show any commits after Robert Kukla's id3.c commit for anyone else?
