00:06:18n1sjhMikeS: while testing out gcc4.3 today I noticed that adding 'volatile' to the big asm blobs in pcf50606-coldfire.c make them work perfectly again, do you think there will be any bad side effects?
00:08:07barrywardelllinuxstb: what's the new bootloader for? want me to test?
00:08:34Lloreanbarrywardell: I think it's to fix the LCD glitch
00:08:53barrywardellah, ok. makes sense, thanks
00:10:01amiconnlinuxstb: If you're going to release new bootloaders, I think we should release the 1st/2nd gen bootloader as well
00:10:17amiconn...even though suspend still isn't implemented :\
00:10:19barrywardellwe never had a bootloader_e200_v1 tag, but we probably should have...
00:10:51linuxstb_amiconn: Sure, but let me do one at a time ;)
00:10:56maxkelleyshoof. my cable dropped out for a moment.
00:11:06maxkelley17 sec lag.
00:11:50linuxstb_Can someone with an E200 and Linux test this binary to see if the uploaded application runs?
00:11:51*bluebrother isn't sure if he likes the "install all" button in the themes installation dialog ... selecting and installing multiple themes was already possible
00:12:26linuxstb_bluebrother: Maybe could host an "" in the future to make that feature more efficient?
00:12:29dionoeanot everyone knows about ctrl-a or the shift key to select a lot of items in 2 clicks.
00:12:44 Quit ompaul ("I think I'll just go over here and turn the lights out")
00:12:49linuxstb_bluebrother: I can imagine a lot of people would like to install all.
00:13:13bluebrotheryeah, but it's kind of an invitation to "just install all" even if people don't want all. And it creates more traffic.
00:13:59bluebrothera "hold Ctrl / Shift to select multiple themes" text might be a nicer solution.
00:14:21linuxstb_Obviously adjusted to the OS...
00:14:31dionoeais traffic really an issue ?
00:14:47bluebrotherok, themes are usually quite small.
00:15:04bluebrotherat least compared to the other stuff. Except maybe ipod video themes ;)
00:15:32dionoeaheh :)
00:15:42linuxstb_Can Qt easily handle other compression formats?
00:15:57dionoealike lzma ?
00:15:59bluebrotherwe shouldn't support targets with that kind of big screens because of backdrop size reasons ;)
00:16:15bluebrotherQt uses zlib.
00:16:25linuxstb_dionoea: It's probably not worth the effort, but I was wondering if we could use something more efficient than zip
00:17:03bluebrotherisn't zip efficient enough? What were you thinking about? 7zip? bzip2?
00:19:58dionoeahum, Complete installation tries to install the bootloader even if the target doesn't have one
00:20:02kugelrockbox doesnt show my bootlogo
00:20:15kugelthe sim shows it, but not the real rb
00:20:18dionoeaSame thing for Small installation

00:22:21webguest78Has it been proven that e200tool does not work on Cygwin?
00:22:36linuxstb_webguest78: No, the opposite.
00:22:51webguest78So it works on cygwin?
00:22:52Lloreanwebguest78: It has been proved that using e200tool with Cygwin is probably currently much more complicated than just booting a LiveCD though
00:23:33bluebrothersomeone got it working on windows, not cygwin
00:23:56webguest78How. Libutils screwed up my computer big time.
00:24:52webguest78Was it XP?
00:25:09 Quit kubiixaka (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:25:25webguest78I have vista. It doesn't work on mine.
00:25:54linuxstb_Have you configured the uac appropriately? (don't ask me what to do though...)
00:25:56bluebrothervista seems to be problematic anyway.
00:26:32webguest78Just tell me what UAC means. I'll figure it out with the power of google.
00:26:40kugelwhy does rockbox not my bootlogo, while the sim does?
00:26:53linuxstb_webguest78: google understands uac
00:27:10kugeluac is user account control
00:27:22Lloreankugel: Are you compiling it in, or using a patch?
00:27:24webguest78Yea. I know how to disable it. That's so annoying.
00:27:51*linuxstb_ wonders what the point is in a feature everyone just disables...
00:28:14bluebrothermaking the system slower, creating a need for faster machines
00:28:46linuxstb_Couldn't they just secretly slow the clock down and save some power?
00:28:47webguest78It thinks it so secure with UAC, but it doesn't even help.
00:29:11Lloreankugel: So you're manually replacing the .bmp file, and then compiling it in, and not adding any patches at all?
00:29:15scorcheDavid: whining about UAC is offtopic here
00:29:16linuxstb_kugel: Try a "make clean"
00:29:20kugeluac mainly makes your account run with non-administrator rights even if you are administrator
00:29:37kugelwhat does that do?
00:30:07linuxstb_It cleans your build directory.
00:30:10webguest78You can change the compatabiliy settings and turn on admin.
00:30:18kugeljust make clean after ../tools/configure?

00:41:00bluebrotheroh ... dionoea owns the frontpage svn table
00:41:10DavidGWRawsonI am installing cygwin. When installing the features, do I pick SRC too?
00:41:40bluebrotherI'll do something against it ;)
00:42:14scorcheDavidGWRawson: do the instructions say to do that?
00:42:21*ender` yawns
00:42:48*bluebrother wonders if ender` did much different than yawning in this channel
00:43:31bluebrotherit's really nice to see rbutils bugs getting ironed out :)
00:43:51dionoeait's still leaking memory :)
00:43:59DavidGWRawsonIt doesn't say whether to choose Bin or Src.
00:44:09DavidGWRawsonI think src might mean source.
00:44:14bluebrotherit is? I never checked about that
00:44:25dionoeathere are a bunch of logger = new ...
00:44:29dionoeabut not a single delete
00:44:41dionoeawell maybe it deletes itself when closing the window
00:44:45dionoeaso that owuld be ok
00:45:04scorche...which, im sure you would have figured you through google...
00:45:06bluebrotheris that needed? Qt destroys all childs once you destroy the parent
00:45:18DavidGWRawsonWould there have to be a change in the bootloader to be able to boot from the MicroSD card?
00:45:19bluebrotherwell, at least I think it does from what I remember from the docs ;)
00:45:47scorcheto put it simply....yes
00:45:48dionoeahehe :) It's not like memory usage matters in a small app such as rbutil anyway
00:46:29bluebrotheryep. But having less bugs is always a good thing (tm) ;)

00:47:51bluebrotherI wouldn't object.
00:48:05bluebrotheryou could include other code policing as well :)
00:48:17dionoeamy editor is configured to print those bright red so it hurts my eyes :)
00:49:12bluebrotherhmm, running rbutil with valgrind makes it slow as hell
00:50:17bluebrotherthe leak summary doesn't look too nice :(
00:52:39DavidGWRawsonSo does cygwin run good for compiling rockbox? As in speedwise.
00:53:12DavidGWRawsonWould I be better off using LiveCD?
00:53:27scorchecygwin is slow
00:53:44 Quit eigma (Read error: 113 (No route to host))
00:53:52bluebrotherwe also have a vmware image.
00:54:08DavidGWRawsonVmware is huge. Takes up tons of memory.
00:54:56scorchethe memory is configurable
00:55:02advcomp2019it is not huge compared to the other images you can get
00:55:13bluebrotherif you run it text-only you don't need that much of memory
00:55:16DavidGWRawsonI meant hard disk.
00:55:31DavidGWRawsonDoes it use image files as the hard disk?
00:56:00DavidGWRawsonThen How do I get the files out of it?
00:56:14scorchesamba share that is pre-configured
00:56:22bluebrotheror use sftp
00:57:02bluebrotheripodpatcher seems to leak memory too. At least if I trust valgrind
00:57:03DavidGWRawsonCygwin is installed.
00:57:15***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
00:57:22bluebrotherwell, it depends on you if you want to use cygwin. It _is_ dog slow.

00:59:28DavidGWRawsoncygwin doesn't know any commands. mkdir doesnt work.
00:59:42bluebrotherthen your installation is broken
00:59:45DavidGWRawsoncommand not found
01:00:40DavidGWRawsonCan I use pearPC to use the vmware image?
01:01:18*bluebrother has no idea about pearpc.
01:01:34 Quit ender` (" Theory: we know everything, but nothing works. Practice: things work, but we don't know why. Combining theory and practi")
01:01:47*Llorean thought PearPC was a PowerPC emulator.
01:02:06DavidGWRawsonit is
01:02:21bluebrotherthen it obviously won't work with the vmware image
01:03:24DavidGWRawsonSo its a special image. How do I install the Cygwin commands, I'm running setup again.
01:04:12bluebrotherwell, vmware emulates an x86 pc. And x86 binaries obviously won't work in a ppc environment.
01:05:09Lloreanbluebrother: vmware doesn't emulate, which is why it's x86-only.
01:05:43bluebrotherLlorean: I know it uses the cpu but didn't want to complicate this sentence even more ;)
01:05:44LloreanOr it's not wholly emulation. I'm not sure I fully understand it, but it makes use of the host architecture.
01:06:06bluebrotherif not it would be dog slow :)
01:06:25DavidGWRawsonThen I'll install every single package on vmware, though it will take a while.
01:06:33bluebrothersometimes I wish I would've been abroad for a longer time to an english-speaking country.
01:06:50scorcheDavidGWRawson: did you not see the link i just pasted you?
01:07:10DavidGWRawsonI now have two of the same pages running. I already had it up.
01:07:25scorchethen why would you want to install every single package?
01:07:33DavidGWRawsonJust to be sure.
01:07:43LloreanDavidGWRawson: You can be sure by simply following the steps on that page.
01:07:47DavidGWRawsonSo I am missing nothing.
01:07:49 Join webguest74 [0] (i=cb6daf50@gateway/web/cgi-irc/
01:08:00LloreanI assure you, if you don't add any steps by, say, removing other packages that it doesn't tell you to remove, you'll be fine.
01:08:21DavidGWRawsonI didn't remove any.
01:08:37webguest74hey guys, does anyone know why the now playing screen doesn't seem to appear as the themes show it? i'm on ipod 5g video 30gb
01:08:51 Part Llorean
01:09:08DavidGWRawsonDoes your rockbox support your theme. You may need to patch it.
01:09:20webguest74i tried a few of them
01:09:29webguest74all the same
01:09:38webguest74could it be the build?
01:09:47scorchedefine "not the same"
01:10:10webguest74well it doesn't show a stylized progress bar etc
01:10:39webguest74it shows the normal menu bg and custom fonts but nothing in terms of layout, interface elements etc in now playing
01:10:52scorchewell, does it look the same as the default wps?
01:11:02scorcheignoring things like the background
01:11:16webguest74no, it shows the background and fonts from the theme
01:11:26webguest74which is odd...
01:11:27scorcheignoring things like the background
01:11:45bluebrotherlook at the text: is it the same as the default wps?
01:12:00webguest74no, it uses the fonts from the themes
01:12:12scorchenot the style of the text...the arrangement and bars
01:12:13bluebrothertext != fonts *sic*
01:12:42bluebrotherok, other approach: which themes did you try?
01:12:55webguest74ipod vision aa
01:13:27scorcheand are you using an official build?
01:13:28bluebrotherneeds a custom build.
01:13:31webguest74crashbox, but crashbox worked
01:14:01webguest74yeah i think offical build
01:14:03bluebrotherwell, the themes pages shows "Min. Version".
01:14:25bluebrotherif that line says something different than "Recent Daily Build" you need an unsupported build
01:15:23webguest74oh ok... i will have a look thanks
01:15:47DavidGWRawsonIs vmware like virtual machine?
01:15:55bluebrotherit is a virtual machine.
01:15:58webguest74"but should work on any build with AlbumArt, Bitmap Resize and Scrolling Margins patches." - i guess that's the problem right there ha ha
01:16:27linuxstb_Does any Sansa user want to test the new sansapatcher? (that contains binaries for Linux, windows and Mac)

01:24:24bluebrotherhehe ;)
01:24:51linuxstb_webguest74: No, the radio remotes are basically an external radio.
01:24:53bluebrotherwell, unless you have a chip that does the hf part you can't receive radio.
01:25:34webguest74guts, and one more quesiton, is there support for remote with dock?
01:26:51webguest74oh ok, well anyway i'm quite please with rockbox cause it unlocks lots of stuff that used to really annoy me.. thanks for your help
01:27:20advcomp2019wait... webguest74 it right.. there is a radio addon −−>
01:27:45linuxstb_advcomp2019: We know that - they're an external radio receiver.
01:27:56advcomp2019o ok i did not know
01:28:28bluebrotheryou can't enable radio if there is no chip present. And apple won't add such a chip if they can sell it separately, that's for sure.
01:28:56linuxstb_It's nice though - RDS support...
01:29:49DavidGWRawsonYou cant use the radio if you dont have a radio.
01:30:29bluebrotherwe could fake it −− show the radio screen and play back static ;)

01:37:51DarkJesusSpending £60 more will have to mean a lot of extra features

01:39:20bluebrothercheck the DeviceChart wiki page, but I don't know about other differences.
01:39:26DarkJesusAlright then
01:39:36bluebrothernot sure if the x5 has an additional fm tuner
01:39:47DarkJesusIf there was some amazingly sick feature the X5 had, then I would get it over the M5

There has only been one serious attempt, IMHO, and despite an admirable job porting it to many (all?) platforms, it received much resistance from the old guard. I'm not accusing them of being wrong, but many people seemed to find it not compelling enough to replace the old reliable.

04:34:55derekWhenever I try to install any rockbox theme, fonts, icons, etc., (via unzipping of course), the files I intend to install are never expanded to the desired folders. Instead, a new folder with the name '.rockbox 1' or '.rockbox 2' or '.rockbox 3', are created. This is very frustrating, as I am forced to manually combine the contents of these numbered folders to get the desired effect.
04:35:21Soapwhich OS, which zip utility?
04:36:25SoapBecause if I had to hazard a guess, I'd guess your zip utility is not set to overwrite or merge files, so it creates a duplicate folder structure appended with the numer.

04:57:42Chrononyeah. You can make it in a text editor. I will often use a music app with playlist editor functions though.

05:00:24derekso I could ask you guys how to install it on there
05:01:56derekstuporglue: maybe because of the special characters. ã, ú, á, etc.
05:02:27stuporgluederek: Most of the songs don't have special chars though, and every song in the list had errors. I can try it without those though
05:03:54derekstuporglue: perhaps it didn't like the period, making it think ' Hereditário.mp3' was the file type
05:04:17derekstuporglue: (the period after the 11)
05:04:27stuporgluehmmm possible
05:05:29stuporgluederek: is the first part of the path correct? the /Music ?
05:06:38derekI'm not the person to ask really, but I would guess it would usually be '/DEVICENAME/MUSIC/

05:07:31stuporgluefrom Rockbox's pov? When I look at files in the RB file browser, I don't see any device

09:04:23SofianBabaiquestion: after compiling (with cygwin), is it necessary to delete all the stuff in the build folder before recompiling again?
09:05:05scorchenot really, but if you encounter errors, you should
09:05:09scorche"make clean"
09:05:57SofianBabaione day, my voice files was messed up when compiling it without deleting the content of the folder
09:06:11scorchenot really, but if you encounter errors, you should
09:06:52SofianBabaiok thanks i just put make clean without any argument?
09:06:58scorchei would suggest doing it everytime unless you are compiling the same build again and again with miniscule changes
09:07:05scorcheclean is the argument
09:07:12SofianBabaiho ok :)

11:57:42ddaltonlinuxstb_: Were you talking to me?
11:59:02ddaltonOk I have been trying to get my indentation right. I have finally worked out how to install indent on cygwin. And it seems to have done the indentation for me so could you have a look at my indentation?
11:59:20 Quit My_Sic (SendQ exceeded)
12:00:08linuxstb_Sure. But the problem with using indent is that it may change existing indentation - meaning your patch will include lots of irrelevant changes.
12:01:26bluebrothercan't you just tell diff to not include whitespace changes?
12:01:31ddaltonok could you have a look at the following link and tell me what is wrong with the indentation?
12:01:54linuxstb_bluebrother: Yes, that would help, but still might not be perfect - e.g. if indent changes brace positions.

12:02:25bluebrotheruuh −− what indent style is that? GNU?

12:02:39 Join BigBambi [0] (n=Alex@
12:02:47ddaltonbecause that wouldn't make sence
12:03:28linuxstb_ddalton: 2 problems with that indenting: 1) It uses 2 spaces to indent, and Rockbox uses 4. 2) The braces are indented one level higher than the if() they belong to - they should be the same level.
12:03:46bluebrothertry indent −−kr
12:04:09ddaltonso "indent −−kr filename"?
12:04:39ddaltonlinuxstb_: Do you know how to change the indenting using indent
12:04:51bluebrotheryep. This uses the "K&R" indentation style which should be much closer to Rockbox indentation
12:05:13linuxstb_ddalton: No, I've never used indent.
12:05:16bluebrotherddalton: -i4 sets indentation to 4 spaces.

12:06:09GodEater_I'm sure I came up with a set of arguments to give to indent about 3 weeks ago that were perfect Rockbox style
12:06:11bluebrotherthe order doesn't matter. −−kr in fact includes -i4
12:06:16GodEater_they should still be in the logs
12:06:20GodEater_K&R isn't quite right
12:06:47bluebrotherno −− this is why I called it "closer" ;)
12:07:16ddaltonso "indent −−kr filename"
12:08:39bluebrotherGodEater_: indent -bl -bli0 -br -i4 -nut
12:09:00ddaltonindent -bl -bli0 -br -i4 -nut filename ?
12:12:55ddaltonis this any better?
12:15:51ddaltonHow do I get it to put the braces on there own line?
12:15:57ddaltonand is the rest of the indenting ok?
12:16:25bluebrotherwell, it matches Rockbox style in a way I would consider good.
12:17:04bluebrotherremove -bl -br to put all braces on its own line. Though I prefer having them after the if / while statement ...
12:17:41n1swe don't have a style guideline for that but you should follow the style of the rest of the file
12:18:30LearjhMikeS: One strange thing though: how can it work on target? :)
12:19:52LearjhMikeS: Found why: a check in remove() on target prevents it from happening.

12:34:53Lloreanlinuxstb: I could've sworn that the bl_* files went in flash, rather than being kept in a hidden partition.
12:36:25Learn1s: Nice. Any speed tests?
12:38:12Lloreanlinuxstb: On a related note, linux version of Sansapatcher works fine for me.
12:39:13linuxstbLlorean: No, there's no flash on the Sansas (apart from the "i2c rom" which e200tool can read/write) - that contains the "pre-bootloader" that loads the main bootloader from the hidden partition and (I think) provides the manufacturer mode functionality.
12:39:26linuxstbThanks for testing sansapatcher - so the bootloader is fine as well?
12:40:13Lloreanlinuxstb: And the i2c ROM is where we write the patched BL_sd blah, right?
12:40:38LloreanThe "Bootloader" loaded from the hidden partition is our MI4 file?
12:41:06Lloreanlinuxstb: I used the builtin bootloader for Sansapatcher, do I need to test the included .mi4 file separately?
12:41:28linuxstbNo, the included mi4 is just to go on the server for rbutil to download - it's the same one that's embedded in sansapatcher.
12:41:37LloreanAlright, the embedded one boots Rockbox fine.
12:41:47n1sLear: not yet, just a quick check in the audio debug screen show no boosting for mp3 at 192 kbit/s at least :-) I had to build Tremor with -Os so it is a lot slower than it used to be ~25% boost
12:42:07Lloreanlinuxstb: No problems with OF either. Since I don't have the line bug, I can't speak about that.
12:42:09linuxstbsansapatcher doesn't touch the i2c rom. It leaves the Sansa bootloader alone, and replaces the Sansa firmware with the Rockbox bootloader.
12:42:25linuxstb^It also leaves the...
12:42:43Lloreanlinuxstb: The e200tool install process you mean?
12:43:00LloreanI'm talking about the e200R install process, for "writing the .rom file"
12:43:15Lloreansansapatcher just moves things around in the partition that we can actually see from the PC
12:43:48LloreanI'm trying to work out what exactly happens during the current R install process, because I may have given wrong information in the R automatic installer thread.
12:43:58linuxstbThere are 3 pieces of Sansa code in the boot process - i2c rom, Sansa bootloader, Sansa firmware. The e200tool process replaces the Sansa bootloader with a patched version that ignores the signature check.
12:44:05linuxstbIs my explanation in that thread unclear?
12:44:36LloreanWell, it doesn't align with what I thought was happening in the install process

15:18:26Paul123ive read through the manual, now im a little bit more upto speed
15:18:42Paul123when your installing new themes, where to you put the font files?
15:18:51wraithdoesn't seem to want to play .wma files at all
15:19:09BigBambiwraith: and how old is your build?
15:19:26SoapPaul123: when installing new themes, the theme should be packaged in such a way that if you simply extract the .zip file to the root of your player's directory - all files will go to the right place.
15:19:28FebsAnd are the .wma files DRM protected?
15:19:36wraithwas sure i got the latest
15:19:53wraithfew days ago
15:20:05wraiththey're ripped from cds through windows media so they could be
15:20:09BigBambiRockbox is updated many times a day, but wma should still work a few days ago
15:20:35SoapPaul123: The same thing /should/ be true of anything you add to your player. "Anything" meaning fonts package, themes / WPSs, updated builds. You'll have to place your Doom and Pacman binaries yourself, as well as your music.
15:20:36BigBambiIn this case, if they don't work I'm guessing drm, but in future please try with latest current build first
15:20:58FebsWindows Media Player has an option to include DRM in ripped files. In at least one version of WMP, that option was enabled by default. Make sure it's turned off.

15:23:09Paul123trial and error i guess.
15:24:44Learn1s: Ogg and gcc 4.3 don't go well together (don't know if the lack of icode is the main reason though), mp3 is about the same, and m4a is _much_ faster - unless I did something wrong...
15:25:15n1sLear: what kind of speed do you get for ogg?
15:26:37LearAbout 20% slower.
15:27:25n1soutch, is that with test_codec or boost ratio?
15:28:48LearSo, for a fairly low bitrate file, speed went from 319 to 248 %.
15:29:24n1sI noticed the other day that -Os makes test_codec a bit slower it gives me about 300% realtime on a file that gets 325% when using -O I haven't investigated further (and this was with 3.4.6)

17:04:54ShadowCodeI have a RockChip Player and I want to instal RockBox on it

17:05:42LloreanNo, the only players supported are those listed as supported at the website.

17:07:23ShadowCodewhy ?
17:07:32bluebrotherbecause nobody ported it.
17:07:43ShadowCodeis it a hardware thing ? or are not tested
17:07:53LloreanPeople have to take the software and convert it.
17:07:59bluebrotherit's a nobody-did-it-thing
17:08:30ShadowCodeand where cen I get info on the converting process
17:08:44bluebrotherfeel free to start working on it but be aware that this is a lot of work
17:08:44LloreanShadowCode: It's not a specific process.
17:08:50ShadowCodei cen code in C++ and some other languages
17:09:02bluebrotherRockbox is C, with some parts in asm.
17:09:35bluebrotherand there is no dynamic memory.
17:10:07ShadowCodeand theoretically is it posible to d oa Port on a RockChip player ?
17:10:45LloreanAs long as you can figure out how to get your own code to run on a player, a port is theoretically possible, though what Rockbox will be able to do depends on CPU speed and other hardware constraints.
17:11:31GodEater_what arch is Rockchip ?
17:11:48ShadowCodearch ?
17:12:06GodEater_ARM? ColdFire? Something else ?

17:19:30ShadowCodek I am going to make some pics and upload them
17:20:10LloreanI've heard of "Rockchip" being referenced as the architecture of a chip, so it may be cusotm
17:20:35bluebrotheralso, can the player upgrade its firmware?
17:20:36jbitwell "portalplayer" is referenced as being the architecture of the chip in hte ipod/etc
17:20:43bluebrotherhmm, DSP core :/
17:21:12jbitbut yeah, the "dsp core" thing makes me think it's some custom random arch
17:21:23jbitusually they say "32-bit RISC core" or so when they mean arm :)

22:13:36bluebrotherdepends on what you want.
22:14:28oranges2iPod Video only has 8 hours life on RockBox?
22:14:54LloreanUntil someone solves what's draining the power, yep.
22:15:13tumurockbox is moar powerful
22:15:28oranges2Doesn't it have like 20 hours normally?
22:15:37LloreanIt really doesn't have anything to do with Rockbox's extra features.
22:15:42Lloreanoranges2: 14-16 I think.
22:15:45bluebrother"normally" depends on the player and its battery.
22:16:06oranges2Normaller = generally
22:16:22bluebrotherstill depends on the players battery ...
22:16:36oranges2I wouldn't think it would vary too much
22:16:39oranges2Unless you got a bad battery
22:16:51Lloreanoranges2: Yes, but the 20 hours is the number Apple quotes, maybe?
22:16:56LloreanI think that page is wrong though
22:16:59bluebrotherwell, it varies between the player types.
22:17:03LloreanA lot of people seem to get 10-12 with Rockbox on the Video.

22:18:15AceNikguys is there a page givin svn revision numbers to each commit
22:18:21Lloreanoranges2: One key is that I don't believe *anybody* has done proper testing with an iPod video.
22:18:37LloreanBy "proper" I mean "Running the same playlist in both firmwares with no sound features enabled, and comparing runtime"

22:23:15linuxstb_It's just generally nicer - faster CPU, more buttons, normal USB socket.
22:24:07DavidGWRawsonWhy don't they give us the source instead of the .patch or .diff files. Wouldn't it be easier?
22:24:19ShadowCodein Bulgaria I cent buy Gigabeat only from ebay
22:24:24linuxstb_oranges2: But as you were told when you first asked the question - the "best" rockbox target heavily depends on what you want to do with it.
22:25:14oranges2Thats the thing

22:25:39oranges2So I was wondering what you all considered important in your purchase

22:26:04oranges2Aside from that :]

22:28:25eigmaAceNik: that's it
22:29:02eigmaAceNik: "update" can be abbreviated "up": "svn up -rX"
22:29:03DavidGWRawsonIf your device has no video playback abilities, and you get rockbox, can it play video?
22:29:26AceNikeigma: thanks i tried it, cool thanks for the shortform
22:29:28DavidGWRawsonKeeping in mind that the screen is large enough.
22:29:44oranges2DavidGWRawson: I know the 1g Nano can
22:29:52linuxstb_DavidGWRawson: Yes, and in some cases (like the ipod video), the reverse... (well, Rockbox does play video on the ipod video but very poorly).
22:29:56AceNikeigma: to revert to the recent version i jus do a simple svn up riht
22:30:21DavidGWRawsonHow do you remember these links?
22:30:29oranges2Well I of course prefer flash
22:30:37eigmaDavidGWRawson: it most likely heavily depends on the hardware: if the main CPU is powerful enough, yes. otherwise, if Rockbox has special code for the coprocessor (like a DSP), then yes. otherwise, probably not
22:30:38oranges2But 80gb for 250 is too hard to pass up
22:30:40AceNikeigma: can i exclude a particular directory from any updates or reverts ?
22:30:44bluebrotherof course ...?
22:30:54oranges2Why wouldn't you?
22:30:56oranges2Aside from price
22:31:06*bluebrother still prefers hdd players
22:31:21bluebrotherit's not flash :)
22:31:33eigmaAceNik: the only thing I can think of is svn -N, which does the update non-recursively.
22:31:58DavidGWRawsonIf you drop a HDD player too hard, the hard drive's MECHANICAL parts get messed up. Flash is a solid piece of storage.
22:32:08oranges2Flash is also faster
22:32:21bluebrotherflash chips wear out.
22:32:23oranges2And smaller
22:32:28eigmaAceNik: so you could update "-N .", "-N ./parent", "parent/child1", and "parent/child2" but not parent/child3

22:33:33DavidGWRawsonAlot of times, static is the cause of broken flash memory.
22:33:56oranges2I wouldn't compare a mp3 player to a thumb drive
22:34:05oranges2While they may offer the same storage medium
22:34:08AceNikeigma: h10[20GB] was kind of messed up somewhere in between trying to figure that out , but most of the updates refer to rbutil so trying to avoid uupdating n revrting that directory at all
22:34:10eigmayou could "svn up -rXXXXX ." and "svn up -rYYYYY ./special/directory", where YYYYY < XXXXX

22:45:28linuxstb_eigma: Why should it? It's easier to maintain one script than many binaries for many distros and CPUs
22:45:59eigmaAceNik: most likely any build problems you're seeing are because your build path has spaces in it ("../tools/configure: line 566: cd: /home/Nikkhil: No such file or directory").

If you have other desires out of a Rockboxed DAP, there are lots of players better at just about everything the Sansa e200 series does. Not that it is horrible at anything, just not best-in-show.

23:15:24ShadowCodethe designe is good to :D
23:15:26oranges2jbit: clock speed has an effect on performance
23:15:26Soaporanges2: there are so many variables in the comparison, not to mention assumptions and fallicies in the statement that it doesn't bear ponderance.
23:15:32jbitoranges2: sure
23:16:03jbitbut saying chipX is faster than chipY because it has a slightly faster clcok without comparing hte arch is incredibly stupid
23:16:09Bagderoranges2: it might also just run out of batter faster
23:16:11Soapbut only when comparing apples2 to apples2 and oranges2 to oranges2 ;)

23:16:18oranges2Ah well
23:16:18bluebrotheroranges2: clock speed has an effect on performance. But it's not only clock speed that matters.
23:16:23oranges2I'm just a nub
23:16:28oranges2I shouldn't be listened to anyways
23:16:57bluebrotheryou can compare like a P4 at 1GHz and a P3 at the same frequency. The performance differs
23:16:59jbitalso note the ipod has two cpus
23:17:24jbitbluebrother: right, a p3 at 1ghz out performs a p4 at teh same clock :)

23:21:47scorchejbit: 2 cores...not cpus, and rockbox doesnt use both fully atm anyway

23:31:36linuxstb_Bagder: Can you update sansapatcher on the download server?
23:32:08oranges2Is there a e200R tool aailable for Windows?
23:32:46linuxstb_Bagder: See the logs at 21:55 today.
23:34:22linuxstb_oranges2: Not yet.

23:37:53flpwchWhen I'm writing a WPS, do i have to do loads for all of the images first, or do i do those on the fly as i make the conditionals for them
23:38:49flpwchAs in, would i have my %wd, then my %x loads all at the start?
23:40:15AceNikflpwch: according to me laod them all first , then as n when you want them to be displayed %wd can do that in the conditionals
23:40:26flpwchok, thanks

23:45:17oranges2So the Rhapsody Sansas have some sort of protection on them?
23:46:00Bagderyes, you can call it that
23:46:19Bagderthe regular ones have too in fact
23:46:46flpwchAlso, when putting in coordinates for images, the coordinate I put in is where the top-left most pixel of the image i'm loading will go, correct?
23:47:08oranges2KINGOFNOOBS: Sansa got the rockbox team to do their firmware
23:47:09flpwchSo, 0|0 would put me at the very top-left
23:47:10oranges2Is this true?
23:47:27oranges2KINGOFNOOBS: Yeah its true. They did most of the sansa e200 series firmware
23:48:15oranges2So its not true?
23:48:21bluebrotherno it's not.
23:49:40oranges2Thank you
23:50:24scorcheBagder: perhaps an update to that status re: e200r?
23:50:34bluebrotheroranges2: please don't state facts you don't know for sure.
23:50:38Bagdera good idea
23:50:50oranges2I don't know
23:50:53oranges2Thats why I was asking
23:50:53bluebrotherBagder: btw, there is a typo: Otober. In case you care ;)
23:50:59oranges2Someone else told me it was true
23:51:15*bluebrother didn't notice that as a question
23:51:16oranges2And I didn't think it was
23:51:31scorcheyou think we would have made a firmware like that? =P
23:52:00bluebrotherthe sansa needs dual-booting because we made the firmware? Sounds unlikely ;)
23:52:10oranges2So I'll need Linux to flash the bootload on a e2X0R player?
23:52:40bluebrotheryes, currently.
23:53:03*Bagder fixed the spell error and updated it for the e200r status
23:55:24scorcheBagder: 3rd of september if you want a date =)
23:55:43Bagderok ;-)
23:55:57bluebrotherhmm, maybe the e200.html page deserves an update with the sansapatcher method?
23:57:07Bagderit links to the rockbox wiki, I think that should be good enough?
23:57:20oranges2I wonder if the Sansa View will support RockBox
23:57:29Bagderoranges2: not by accident, no
23:57:45bluebrotherfair enough.
23:57:54oranges2They should put that under faetures
23:57:59oranges2"Accidental RockBox support."
