00:27:47eigmaport in progress, I believe; check the wiki
00:28:11AussiedeviLnew i should have gone with an ipod or archos:)
00:28:17bluebrotherI guess the "New ports" forums is better for the current status

00:37:15scorcheeigma: yes, but caps is generally not necessary and can turn the polite "move on" nudge into something more hostile

00:54:09amiconnDetecting devices mainly via usb device id isn't such a good idea
00:54:28amiconnWhat if you install on an ipod via firewire?
00:54:55linuxstbamiconn: I mentioned that earlier...

00:55:03amiconnPlus the 1st/2nd gen are firewire _only_
00:55:15linuxstbI also mentioned that ;)
00:55:58amiconnHmm, didn't spot that
00:56:33linuxstbBut I don't think that should stop rbutil using usb detection - it's probably how most people connect their DAPs.
00:58:56linuxstbDo you have any idea if there's an equivalent to USB IDs in the firewire world?

01:12:26naurusand i'm back again!
01:13:25naurusnow i'd like to know if its possible for rockbox to say "music" instead of "database" in the menu
01:13:50linuxstbbarrywardell: Thanks.
01:14:52linuxstbnaurus: Only if you change the source code and compile Rockbox yourself. (or possibly, just the .lang file and create a new .lng)
01:15:09naurusi'll check out the lang
01:15:44naurusis there software to open the .lng file?
01:16:01barrywardelllinuxstb: there's a one line difference in usb.h
01:16:35linuxstbHmm, the endian thing...
01:16:42naurusnvm, it works in notepad
01:16:53barrywardellyup, USB_LE16_TO_CPU
01:16:56linuxstbbarrywardell: I think that's OK - our code isn't using that macro.
01:17:33barrywardellah, good
01:17:36linuxstbDid you see my changes to the e200rpatcher makefile?
01:17:55*amiconn wonders what linux chooses to display as 'model id' for a firewire device
01:18:16linuxstbamiconn: Have you found the info in Windows?
01:18:16amiconnOnly the vendor id is mandatory for firewire devices iiuc
01:18:25barrywardellyes, they look good. couldn't test them without the ppc libusb
01:19:43amiconnStill searching...
01:19:57linuxstbbarrywardell: It feels like a bit of a hack, but the whole Makefile is a bit like that - building many different targets without a configure script to help the process.
01:20:46naurusthe .lng file didn't work
01:20:50linuxstbI wouldn't like to have to try and incorporate static linking of libusb into the Universal binary of rbutil...
01:21:06barrywardellyeah, there's no easy way to do it
01:21:16naurusis there a hex editor that will work with the .rock file?
01:21:39barrywardellapple strongly discourages static linking of libraries
01:21:50scorchenaurus: a hex editor is just a hex editor...
01:22:13naurusi meant a resource hacker
01:22:34naurusand i also meant for the mi4 file format
01:22:46scorchewhat are you trying to accomplish?
01:23:16naurusChanging common phrases in the menus
01:23:25scorchejust recompile..
01:23:26nauruslike change "database" to "my music"
01:23:47linuxstbnaurus: I just told you, it's in the .lng file.
01:23:53naurusso the only way is to set up a dev environment
01:24:04naurusi tried the .lng, but it didn't work
01:24:07*linuxstb realises it's not and apologises
01:24:25naurusits all good
01:24:38scorchesetting up a dev environment is much easier than figuring out where to edit in a binary well, it will last through revisions whereas a binary patch would not
01:24:41linuxstbThe default language is compiled into Rockbox, so my very first answer applies - you need to edit the .lang file and recompile.
01:25:39naurusohhhh, ok, but i have to do it all from source
01:25:55scorcheyes, which is much easier than binary pathcing..
01:25:57barrywardelllinuxstb: i just built a universal binary, but it's not working. the e200rpatcher-i386 version does work though???
01:26:03naurusthats fine, i need to make some other changes anyway, so i'll set up a build envo
01:26:09linuxstbbarrywardell: Hmm, that's odd...
01:26:55linuxstbIn what way does it not work?
01:27:07barrywardellfound e200r, error writing data
01:27:14barrywardelli'll try to debug further
01:27:26linuxstbSo same error that you had earlier?
01:27:38barrywardelland now it worked
01:27:48barrywardellyes, same as earlier
01:27:54barrywardellmaybe it's a bit flakey after all
01:28:48 Quit JdGordon ("Konversation terminated!")
01:29:02barrywardellit seems to work the second time it's run
01:29:04linuxstbYou could compare e200rpatcher with the e200tool source, but I think that part is in effect identical - there's only one way to send data...

01:29:54 Part toffe82
01:30:12linuxstbbarrywardell: Ah, e200tool displays more info for the error - fprintf(stderr, "\nBulk write error (%d, %s)\n", ret, strerror(-ret));

01:34:17barrywardellyeah, trying that now. but where is strerror?
01:34:19linuxstbYou could also try modifying TOUT (the timeout) and MAX_TRANSFER (the size in bytes of each transfer).

01:37:30barrywardellBulk write error (-1, Operation not permitted)
01:37:45barrywardelland then it worked the second time around
01:38:02linuxstbThat's strange - that the first write (of the length) succeeded, but the write in the while() loop didn't.
01:38:20barrywardellI sometimes also get the length writing error now

01:39:52nauruscan somebody point me to the page that explains dev environments, i can't find it [embarrased]

01:40:10scorchehit the index link on the sidebar
01:40:12linuxstbClick on "index" under Documentation, then the "For Developers" section
01:40:14barrywardell3) it fails writing the length
01:40:39linuxstbAnd with 2) the application runs correctly on your Sansa?
01:41:38barrywardell2 is the most common as well
01:41:44linuxstbIt could be worth trying to compile e200tool, and see if that works any differently.
01:42:07linuxstbBut I can't see anything it does differently...

06:57:28sp3ilmitkurtThe program freezes
06:57:32scorchewell, regardless, that is offtopic
06:58:08DavidGWRawsonWould you have to completly rewrite rockbox to work with sansa connect's wifi capability?
06:58:10sp3ilmitkurtHow so
06:58:28Lloreansp3ilmitkurt: It's off topic any problems the original firmware has.
06:58:31sp3ilmitkurtI would just want rockbox to be able to use anything but the zune software
06:58:40Lloreansp3ilmitkurt: The reason nobody's working on it is because the people who own them (like you) all expect someone else to do it.
06:58:54DavidGWRawsonDonate your zune to them.
06:59:00scorchethat wasnt a joke...
06:59:01sp3ilmitkurtIf I knew how I would.

06:59:40sp3ilmitkurtI'm donating it
06:59:48Lloreansp3ilmitkurt: Well, it takes a very large amount of work, and time, and someone who really really wants it to work
06:59:59LloreanWhich is why it depends on people who actually wanted to buy that player
07:00:16sp3ilmitkurtBut then i'll be annoyed about not having rock box on my 160 gig
07:00:24kkurbjunThere have been people that looked into the Zune and ran into problems with the digital signature checks
07:00:26DavidGWRawsonsp3ilmitkurt, you make it work for zune then, the source files are available

07:01:33sp3ilmitkurtWhat would be capable with zune and rock box/

07:07:05kkurbjunyeah.. zunepet seems to be playing around with the font hacks
07:07:36ptw419ah really? someone from zune scene dropped by the other day and said something about font hacks
07:07:37kkurbjunor at least making suggestions on how to break it

07:08:27ptw419knowing the zune scene they'd probably try to keep any real work secret though
07:08:33kkurbjun look at his posts on zune supporting unicode
07:08:34ptw419if any
07:08:57ptw419sp3ilmitkurt: anythings possible
07:09:08ptw419kkurbjun: thanks

07:10:55 Quit Ebert ()
07:10:55kkurbjunoh, never mind
07:11:06ptw419it would be real interesting to see how they crack it, if they do
07:11:08kkurbjunhe found out how to revert to different firmware versions
07:11:31kkurbjun"NOTE: it is a very limited hack. It will let you install the 4 TTC Asian font collections. It will let you revert to older versions of the official firmware. It will let you explore other exploits."
07:11:40kkurbjun"It won't let you run homebrew (at least not yet; hopefully someone will find an exploit to make it possible)"
07:12:18LloreanFor some reason the term "Homebrew" always seems to mean "I want to put emulators on it" to me.
07:13:16kkurbjunI guess he's still not past the digital signatures yet, the other firmwares are likely still signed
07:13:55LloreanSo are those fonts part of a signed package that he just convinces it to install when it didn't want to?
07:13:57 Quit perrikwp ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
07:14:18ptw419technically, it sounds like they have found a "limited" way of bypassing the sig's though if they can alter the font and revert firmwares
07:14:41ptw419Llorean: i believe the fonts are in the signed nk.bin
07:15:15ptw419but i may be wrong....
07:16:30sp3ilmitkurtsigned in .ink
07:17:10ptw419it seems in the firmware partition on the S, there is a directory containing fonts. but i could have sworn in the nk.bin from the S it also contained fonts...

07:55:42AveI for one felt like it based on other writings
07:55:46LloreanIn fact we've openly admitted there's a nano problem and have been trying to talk people into properly researched it.
07:55:58Avewhat is there to be done?
07:56:02Avethat'd help
07:56:03LloreanFigure out what causes the problem.
07:56:09Aveah that easy
07:56:16LloreanOh really?
07:56:27AveI mean like something simple like elimination techniques
07:56:36Avecant just pull the answer out of my hat
07:57:04LloreanYeah, you people who are having the problem need to start working on eliminating things
07:57:13LloreanThose of us who have working Nano's can't experiment
07:57:57LloreanWe've showed that it's not just heat (by heating ours up quite a lot and showing they still work), we've showed that it's not the retail firmware version, we've showed that it's not one of the known hardware variances because one person who's experiencing it has the same hardware revisions as me.
07:58:06AveI'm open to experimentation but dont know where to begin, its not like its beneficial to just start poking random values in the pp clock setup code and see what happnes
07:58:31LloreanIt's not the clock setup that's the problem, though.
07:58:46Aveyeah, proper
07:59:02LloreanSo why would you poke at those values?
07:59:16Avebecause I dont know what else to do
07:59:32Avenot clock setup, not firmware, not hw rev, not heat

08:00:14Aveno that was in the very beginning why the info was being requested on the tracker
08:00:30LloreanYes, and did you at any point see us say "No, it's not that"?
08:00:36LloreanThat still needs to be investigate quite a bit.
08:01:01 Quit billytwowilly (Read error: 101 (Network is unreachable))
08:01:35LloreanUnfortunately it requires investigation on a non-working Nano, since you can't test code quickly without one at hand
08:02:15LloreanBut either way, nobody has claimed that this problem doesn't exist.
08:02:23LloreanIf we thought it didn't exist, we'd close the task.
08:03:15Aveyes indeed
08:03:51LloreanBut it seems that, on the average, people experiencing the bug would just rather roll back to the old revision.
08:04:19Avewell, I'm using my player almost daily for listening purposes and I'm using r14003 or so..
08:04:27Avebut its no problem to upgrade
08:04:42LloreanWhat I mean is that nobody experiencing the problem is really trying to investigate.
08:05:24Ave'll try to make an effort, but my knowledge of rb internals is shaky so I need some assitance
08:06:25LloreanWhat may be needed is for someone to investigate what the Apple firmware does, compare what we do, and experiment.
08:06:44LloreanIt's probably going to require someone to either spend some time learning quite a bit, or someone who's already quite advanced and has one of these players.
08:07:18Avethe chance of latter happening seems quite slim
08:07:41Aveunless someone sends you guys a borked player
08:08:16LloreanYou have to find someone who's knowledgeable enough and willing to work on it. For example, I'm not versed enough in the low level code to be able to do so much quirker than someone starting from scratch.
08:08:29LloreanBut yes, sending a player to an interested dev would be a very good solution

08:46:48GodEateralso, karl says he's not keen to do the copyright thing it would seem
08:46:51LloreanWell, I think "GPLv3 has grander goals, but GPLv2 is more likely to benefit Rockbox in the long term"
08:47:22GodEatermy personal opinion is that "with gplv3, the FSF has lost it's marbles" - but that's just me

08:48:47LloreanNot that it'd actually affect us currently, since we don't have any hardware manufacturers (that we know of) considering using RB either way.

08:49:42GodEaterall ray's talk of "well we'll just relicense to them" then is a fairy story
08:49:54GodEateras B4gder pointed out

08:56:33GodEaterI'd be interested to hear a lawyer's view on that majority vote of (c) holders
08:56:38GodEaterI'm sure it's pixie dust
08:57:11B4gderpossibly it would work if get votes for a vast majority of the code
08:57:31GodEaterif we *get* the votes I'd agree
08:57:47GodEaterbut not if we just told people "we're assuming you've voted yes unless you say otherwise")
08:58:04B4gderI think that getting 14 votes who own 37% of the code would be joke
08:58:06B4gdera joke
08:58:28B4gderbut getting 28 that owns 97% could be considered ok
08:58:50LloreanAt which point if any of the remaining 3% of the code complains, you can rewrite it as necessary anyway
08:58:51B4gderbut I just can't see that happen

08:59:30Llorean"Another way is for all the contributors to a program to state a proxy who can decide on upgrading to future GPL versions. "
09:00:07B4gderyeah, but that would require that proxy/org to own the copyright
09:00:28LloreanThe fsf site mentions that as a separate option to assigning copyright.
09:00:55LloreanYou preserve copyright, they can relicense *that use* of the code, it sounds like.
09:01:44LloreanThough they don't actually describe it, it's just mentioned at the end of a page on something else entirely
09:04:05B4gdersounds like some legalese that is beyond my little brain
09:04:35LloreanI guess it'd be like voting proxies with stocks and such.
09:04:38GodEaterall legalese is beyond mine ;)
09:04:49*GodEater 's brain is very very tiny
09:05:00LloreanYou still own the shares, but someone else gets to decide what you want done with 'em.
09:05:22GodEaterthat makes sense with shares
09:05:28GodEaterI'm not so sure on source code
09:06:05GodEateralthough when you say "what you want done with them", do you mean "vote for you at AGM events" or "trade with on your behalf" ?
09:06:24LloreanTrue, 'tis the voting.

09:08:31LloreanI'm sure there's some way you could do something like giving Rockbox the right to relicense your code under any license so long as it's certified as an "Open Source" license by whoever it was who does that thing
09:09:19mikae1has anybody checked out the torn apart nano and classic ?
09:09:24B4gderyes it can most surely be done controlled by contracts
09:09:32mikae1is there a chance you will ever get rockbox on these?
09:09:45Lloreanmikae1: There is if people who own them put forward a concentrated effort to do it...
09:09:49B4gdermikae1: we've seen numerous rip-aparts by now
09:10:02B4gderthe encryption of the firmware is the hard part
09:10:20GodEateralthough to be fair, we don't *KNOW* it's encrypted yet
09:10:21B4gderor rather, the hardest, there may be other hard parts too ,-)
09:10:23GodEaterwe're just assuming ;)
09:10:27LloreanEither way, if we're under GPLv2 only, almost none of this matters unless a solution for re-licensing happens in the first place
09:11:19B4gderI think the question if we are "v2 or later" or plain v2 drowned in the v3 thread of the list

09:35:10LloreanGoogle gave me a sourceforge project, and that just threw more words at me I didn't really know how to fit together.
09:35:55GodEaterLlorean: how about a comment on the task? "WTF is a convolver" ?
09:36:36B4gderI like this explanation:
09:36:37LloreanGodEater: It sounds like a made up name for "anything that can be used to add finite impulse response filters"
09:36:40B4gder"The Real-Time Convolver is a hardware / software add-on to the Hypersignal-Acoustic software package which implements very long FIR filters (VLFFs) in real-time."
09:37:03B4gderit is marketing speach for: yada yada yada
09:37:18LloreanBut then it describes "finite impulse response" as "sound files"
09:37:25B4gderbut I guess that underneath there is actually true tech
09:38:20GodEaterdoing what???
09:38:26B4gderI have no idea
09:38:33B4gderconvolving? ;-)
09:39:07LloreanIt sounds like it's just a type of DSP filter that involves two audio files, the source one, and the one that describes the filtering.
09:39:43LloreanWell "just" in the sense that "they've made up a word, rather than describing at all what's going on"
09:40:14LinusNwell, convolution is a pretty defined term in the dsp world
09:40:36B4gderah that's the term then
09:40:45B4gderwikipedia has that

14:20:50 Quit Febs (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
14:20:55LloreanThere should be nothing that's exclusive to the Context Menu unless it's only ever useful in that context, though.
14:20:57markuneinhirn: it's also what I suggested, but the argument was that you shouldn't be able to view theplaylist if there is none
14:21:26einhirnIn english the Menu point is called "Playlists" and I was very astonished (!?) that i got a submenu instead of a list of playlists.
14:22:11markuneinhirn: feel free to make a patch, I'm all for it
14:22:14einhirnLlorean: Ok, I get that. It just seems redundant. And in my case obstructing?
14:23:53einhirnmarkun: maybe we misunderstood each other? When I first used the "Playlists" menu I was expecting to see the playlists I moved to the Playlists folder. Instead I saw some commands (create, view, save) that I rarely ever use ;)
14:24:30pixelmaI don't understand what you are suggesting, I mean you can do more than just viewing the current playlistfrom there (like using the playlist catalog)
14:25:06markuneinhirn: yes, we minsunderstood eachother :)
14:26:12einhirnpixelma: "playlist catalog"- thats the word I was missing. I thought that entering the Menu point "Playlists" would bring me directly to the playlist catalog - not to some playlist related functions _and_ the playlist catalog.
14:28:15pixelmawhy not? You can save the current playlist from there and save it even if it's not playing...
14:28:46pixelmaor create a new one
14:28:58einhirnSo maybe it's just the name being un-intuitive.
14:29:28einhirnBut "create one" is an obscure function.
14:31:18einhirnI started it and it went to build "/root.m3u8" - why? Obviously I currently was in root - but how is that function useful via the main menu? It clearly is related to files or browsing, so why not put it in that context menu?

14:38:02pixelmamaxkelley: or should I post it the tracker?
14:38:27einhirnSo can't I deduce the current path from "the item the cursor is placed on"? Or is this a "human interaction" instead of a technical quirk?

15:05:05LloreanIn many file managers you have to click in the whitespace, but that is not an option in Rockbox.
15:05:45jhMikeSLlorean: when you said "hung" you meant the player was locked?

15:06:22LloreanDidn't try to play anything else though, just shut it off
15:06:31einhirnLlorean: Ok I think I went over the top with that - but does "create playlist" from main menu (!) - by common interface sense - create a recursive playlist rooting in the currently browsed directory?
15:06:54jhMikeSit's fine. the video stream just stopped itself then.
15:06:59Lloreaneinhirn: "Create Playlist" in the main menu wouldn't have any common interface sense associated with it, so I'd hope the user would actually look at the manual

16:35:06GodEatercool :)
16:35:15GodEaterwant me to test apply it again to check ?
16:35:50BuschelGodEater: jhMikeS wanted to change the kind of configuration
16:35:56amiconnImo it doesn't make sense to have wheel acceleration 2 times in the source
16:36:09amiconnRather, ipods should define HAVE_SCROLLWHEEL as well

16:37:05GodEaterthe changes are in the clickwheel driver iiuc
16:37:15GodEaterso it works like the sansa wheel now
16:37:17amiconnWhat about the new setting?
16:37:39GodEateryou mean the wheelspeed one ?

16:38:16pixelmabluebrother: for a new crossreference (which is only an item in a subsection) I need to give that item a label in order to use "ref:" in the chapter I want to link from - or do I overlook something?
16:38:49amiconnIt wasn't there before, not even for sansa
16:39:04GodEaterI've never seen a sansa
16:39:06GodEaterso I wouldn't know
16:39:12GodEaterwhat's wrong with it anyway ?
16:39:41bluebrotherpixelma: you need to assign a label. The name of that label is arbitrary, but we used some common prefixes (like "ref:")
16:40:46pixelmaah, thanks

16:41:05BuschelGodEater/amiconn: the new setting can be sued to tweak the speed and starting point of the acceleration. If we find a good default we could also drop this configuration and use a "hard" define.
16:41:08amiconnI wonder why the patch adds a setting if it's just a port of the sansa wheel acceleration to ipods
16:41:33GodEaterI like the fact that it's configurable personally
16:43:27einhirnQuestion: In the online version of the Manual (at least the Archos Recorder V1 version) - why is the "next" link listed on the left, while the "Prev" link is listed on the right? In a left-to-right-language I'd assume to access the next page/chapter/whatever by clicking somewhere right.
16:46:19bluebrothereinhirn: that's just the default how htlatex creates it. I never bothered about changing it.
16:46:35markunweird default
16:46:53einhirnmarkun : i'd say so... ;)
16:48:09einhirnAnyway, no top priority, I think - just weird. I found out about it when clicking without watching and wondering why I moved back instead of forward through the chapters.
16:48:43bluebrotherfile a task in the tracker if you want to. I guess it's not hard to change, but htlatex' documentation is really ... bad :o
16:49:47bluebrotherone could also argue that if you want to skip the chapter it's better to have "next" first ...

16:55:25bluebrotherif we can detect the e200r properly we can tell the user to install a driver (unless we do this automatically or it's already installed)

22:02:59maxkelleyI think there's a bug with the audio interface for the c200..
22:03:25maxkelleyit actually seems to be a decrase in quality from the OF, because it sounds like the amp is being overdriven.
22:03:34maxkelleydoes anyone know if there's two amps inside the c200?

22:26:54BagderI don't think anyone knows anything in particular about that
22:27:05BagderI would guess all the audio stuff is in the as3514
22:27:51maxkelleymm. somehow, the sansa firmware must like overpower that as3514, or rockbox must underpower it, because it clips at low volumes in rockbox.
22:29:08preglowyou could try asking jhMikeS

23:00:28jhMikeSbut there's no mystery to me about what's in the AS3514 since I do have the datasheet for it.
23:00:36maxkelleyin the brochure on the ams site, there are like 6 gain stages which are combined.
23:00:42maxkelleyit shows a block diagram.
23:00:53maxkelleylike, when it gets to higher volumes, it starts crackling.
23:01:06maxkelleyand those higher volumes are nowwhere near what the of could attain.

23:32:52jhMikeSbut why would e200 not have the problem then? it does set that as part of the volume setting and there's the AGC block.
23:34:37jhMikeSperhaps some register that left as default has another value on c200 that isn't right. I really can't say for sure since I don't own the model.
23:40:01amiconnHmm, it seems that the calls to backlight_on(), remote_backlight_on() and button_backlight_on() in backlight.c:backlight_init() are unnecessary
23:40:31jhMikeSthis c200 issues sounds like one of those jobs that takes alot of cigarrettes to solve
23:40:44amiconnThe settings load will call the setting functions in backlight.c, which will make the backlight light up if it's not disabled in settings
23:41:41amiconnBut if the calls are there, and the bootloader does *not* enable the backlight (which I'll soon commit for the 1st/2nd gen), having the backlight disabled in settings will cause a short backlight flash on boot
23:42:30preglowBagder: they cover more than i would have expected
23:42:31preglowthat's nice
23:42:40amiconnI want the backlight disabled in the 1st/2nd gen bl because of the backlight inversion effect, which makes it look rather bad in direct sunlight
