00:23:07*n1s looks for chrystal ball
00:23:08 Quit KF ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
00:23:56n1snope didn't find it, you better just ask your question then...
00:24:18k0shyxk does rockbox support audiobooks?
00:24:34k0shyxespecially for ipod 5.5 gen
00:24:48n1sif they are encoded in one of the many formats rockbox supports then yes
00:24:58n1sor what do you mean by "support"
00:25:08k0shyxlike in the apple firmware
00:25:14k0shyxthere is a section titled audiobooks
00:25:20k0shyxand they're all organized and stuff
00:25:26k0shyxlike that, can rockbox do that?
00:25:35n1sI have never used the apple firmware but you could put them in their own folder
00:25:52k0shyxoh the music is sorted in folders?
00:25:57n1sor probably create some custom view for the database but I never messed with that stuff
00:26:21n1sk0shyx: you can browse by metadata too, that's what we call the database
00:26:35k0shyxoh really? i didnt knwo that
00:26:43k0shyxsee i'm new to rockbox and i'm thinking of installing it
00:27:08n1sk0shyx: if you don't like it you can just uninstall it again

00:54:04scorche|wsansa...not likely that rockbox will be on the new ipods
00:54:19[IDC]DragonI considered getting a nano 3g, not for Rockbox, just for a nice player
00:54:42[IDC]Dragonbut then I realised what a prison Apple has built wit itunes
00:55:14scorche|wnot rockbox?...for shame
00:55:28[IDC]Dragonmy collection is not well tagged, itunes would make a mess from it
00:55:50preglowit would
00:55:53preglowitunes sucks so badly
00:56:00n1s[IDC]Dragon: the gigabeat S port is in its initial stages, code is running on the target
00:56:15preglowe280 is the better bet, i sincerely doubt we'll have support for the newer ipods anytime soon, if ever
00:56:20*[IDC]Dragon googles what that looks like
00:56:48preglowit's also almost impossible to buy new, and is even rare to find used
00:57:02n1sbut yeah if you want a player that's usable (with rockbox) a sansa is a better bet
00:57:17n1sI mean usable _now_
00:57:24*n1s should go to bed
00:57:33pixelmaif you go flash player I'd prefer the Sansa anyways - more flexible with the microSD slot but then the Nano probably has the nicer display

01:05:08linuxstb[IDC]Dragon: IIUC, the itunes database is limited in terms of filename lengths, so you can't just put files anywhere and build a db.
01:05:43[IDC]Dragongah, sounds bad and worse
01:06:10[IDC]Dragonmaybe I should try a capable tagger first
01:07:15linuxstbYou may also have read about Apple's addition of a signature in the itunesdb. It's been cracked already, but maybe all the apps haven't been updated yet.
01:07:19[IDC]Dragonmy endpoint directories are named "artist - album", this could be tagged into the files if nothing in there

01:39:31saratogai still want to commit cabbie as the default rockbox theme
01:39:41saratogahas anyone expressed an opinion on this while i've been away
01:40:54Zagorsaratoga: I dislike that it introduces a new rockbox logo
01:41:47LloreanSo remove the backdrop image and just use a solid black background in the menus?

01:42:43saratogai would like to have a rockbox logo somewhere, but i have no strong feelings about which or where
01:43:14LloreanI don't think the current logo can go anywhere without being obtrusive at the moment.

01:43:29windio00hey im going to an installfest and bringing my ipod video with rockbox to talk about . . . what kind of things would be cool to say about rockbox?
01:43:32pixelmaand cabbie is not very targets complete as far as I'm aware
01:43:46ZagorI guess the logo could be used if faded
01:43:53Lloreanpixelma: But it's simple enough that completing it wouldn't be beyond the scope of one dedicated person, if that person wanted badly to commit it.
01:43:55windio00i just like the flac and ogg capabilities :)
01:44:07Nico_Pwindio00: doom ! (jk)
01:44:08windio00well not just
01:44:19LloreanZagor: For the version of Cabbie I used a while, I took the logo and rotated it 90 degrees, and placed it at the right edge of the screen, so it didn't interfere with most lists.
01:44:19linuxstbsaratoga: Where is cabbie?
01:44:20saratogapixelma: it runs on half of the targets so far
01:44:26saratogai'll extend it if others support using it
01:44:30pixelmaLlorean: if it was that easy... *sigh, thinking about my "easy enough" wps myself*
01:44:54windio00Nico_P: yeah that would be cool . . . has support got better? last time i tried it really choppy
01:45:05Lloreanpixelma: Well, I use a very special definition of "easy enough" meaning "I don't have to do it, so I can get away with saying it" :-P
01:45:12pixelmasaratoga: how many are that, thinking of RWPSs too...
01:45:14linuxstbsaratoga: Very orange ;)
01:45:28Zagoryeah, I too think it's a bit too high-contrast
01:45:30windio00frozen bubble might be better
01:45:31saratogayes, but the orange looks suprisingly good on the device
01:45:34saratogaits quite readible
01:45:37Zagorfeels like old green screens :)
01:45:41saratogaeven in poor lighting
01:45:43windio00i could try playing the elephant dream thing
01:46:09saratogapixelma: 4 done, 4 to go
01:46:13linuxstbsaratoga: Shouldn't it have a status bar in the menu?
01:46:21rashersaratoga: I like it. But I guess the logo shouldn't be there (even though I personally like it)
01:46:31saratogastatus bar?
01:46:45linuxstbThe top line - icons, clock, etc...
01:46:59linuxstbWhat's been moved to the bottom in the wps
01:47:00saratogalinuxstb: I wasn't aware that was possible
01:47:19linuxstbIt is, but not a customised one.
01:47:35saratogai wouldn't mind leaving a logo in the menu background, but i agree it should at very least be made much, much fainter
01:47:48windio00i was suprised how much midi support has gotten better
01:48:03windio00it sounds perfect now
01:48:14saratogalinuxstb: so its just hard coded to have some of the things on the bottom menu from that picture?
01:48:14rashersaratoga: well, the logo shouldn't be there because it's not the actual Rockbox logo
01:48:25saratogarasher: yes I agree
01:48:26pixelmasaratoga: I count 10 main screen resolutions (+1 grey version of the 160x128) + 2 remote screens
01:48:40saratogapixelma: sorry, was only thinking color targets
01:48:47saratogai don't see any reason to involve the grayscale ones yet
01:48:54saratogasince cabbie won't work for them anyway
01:49:00saratogamight as well make it a second commit
01:49:13rasherI don't see how it couldn't work for grayscale
01:49:22rasherIt won't be orange, obviously, but it could look much the same
01:49:26linuxstbIMO we don't need to force a colour theme onto the smaller (and greyscale) targets though. The current default is reasonable.
01:49:33pixelmathought the goal was to get at least the same feeling everywhere
01:49:57linuxstbIMO the goal is give a reasonable first impression of Rockbox.
01:49:57saratogai'd like to commit something for the color targets, and sooner if possible
01:50:05saratogathen we can tweak it as we feel is needed
01:50:06pixelmaand iCatcher proofs that it is possible
01:50:10windio00for some reason depending on the build turning on and off doesnt work
01:50:11saratogaalmost anything is better then what we have now
01:50:29 Quit Nico_P (Remote closed the connection)
01:50:35windio00working now though
01:50:52Lloreanpixelma: My suggestion in the contest was to have the same "feel" everywhere.
01:51:04LloreanBut I agree that's not strictly necessary for a default, just a "would be nice"
01:51:06pixelmaI would want that too
01:51:38pixelmathough it's hard
01:51:43LloreanI think though that "feel" can be accomplished by using similar styled icons, fonts from the same family, similar volume indicator, etc, without concerning too much with any exact replication of layout etc.
01:51:55saratogaLlorean: thats a good point
01:52:07saratogalayout may be tricky for some targets (C200)
01:52:13rasherAnd stuff such as "header in a rounded rectangle"
01:52:17LloreanOr 4:3 vs 3:4 screens
01:52:38rasherit doesn't even have to include the same info
01:52:45rasherin my opinion, of course
01:52:56LloreanI think "Next Song" information is absolutely sacrifice-able on smaller screens
01:53:08LloreanOr rather, "can be tacked on on larger screens to fill up empty space"
01:53:17LloreanDepending on whether you like it or dislike it. :)
01:53:21 Part hachi
01:53:23pixelmaI didn't say that it has to look all the same that's impossible
01:53:41rasherdoesn't icatcher pretty much attempt that?
01:53:51LloreaniCatcher does attempt that.
01:53:59LloreanI personally dislike it, but I'm no longer against it being made default.
01:54:17rasherI remember it looking pretty bad on h120.
01:54:25LloreanI was against rushing to make it default, some time ago, but no other new alternatives really came up
01:54:25rasherMainly how the grays were used
01:54:45pixelmabut there are slight differences for smaller screens too
01:55:03rasheranyway, it's not like the default can't be changed if it gets lots of complaints
01:55:26saratogarasher: thats my thought
01:55:35 Quit barrywardell ()
01:55:39pixelmarasher: when did you last try? And by the way, I don't like it much on my M5 too because the font is quite small on that screen (smaller pixels than the H100)

01:57:05saratogaok, so the consensus tonight is that I should remove the logo, and that its probably ok for to use for the color targets?

01:57:37Lloreansaratoga: Maybe take some screenshots in various sims to show how it looks at different screen sizes?
01:57:40pixelmarasher: in the beginning the H100 used the colour icons and let Rockbox do the downscaling with unexpected results, later it got spcified greyscale icons but can't tell for sure which version you looked at
01:57:55Bam2550Linuxstb: which string holds the ipodnano DataBase thing?
01:58:03Bam2550in the english.lang file
01:58:12rasherpixelma: that might be it.. I no longer have it, so I guess my opinion is no longer relevant
01:59:07linuxstbBam2550: Just search for "Database" - I don't know exactly.
01:59:36saratogaLlorean: I can do that, but it may take a few days before I'll have time
01:59:51saratogado you think a wiki page would be a good idea, or just posting in the forums thread?
01:59:55Bam2550i wish it was just the english.lang for ipodnano
01:59:56Lloreansaratoga: Just a suggestion is all, so that next time this comes up you can show how it looks elsewhere. :)
02:00:37saratogaits a good idea, theres no real way for most people to see the ported versions without compiling the simulator since I didn't include pictures

03:53:42Soapthere is the way
03:54:11Bam2550it says that is the other way...
03:54:26Bam2550If you don't like Cygwin and you want to avoid setting it, you can try the VMwareDevelopmentPlatform which contains all needed files, compressed in an emulated Debian Linux environment.
03:54:28Soapthe way is to finish what you started and learn how to set the PATH environment in cgywin.
03:55:20Bam2550No thanks, i think i'm going to go with VMware
03:55:21Soapif you feel the wiki is unclear (which it appears to be) - seek out another source for the answer (now that you know what the question is) or wait for someone who knows more than me (127 other people in this room).
03:55:49SoapRunning to vmware - just so you run into a different set of questions does not solve the fundamental problem.
03:56:42Bam2550fine ill wait a while to see if anyone else comes around.
03:57:34Bam2550Do you think if i try to reinstall the error might be fixed? or do you think it will happen over and over just because my computer is like this?
03:57:40Soapor Google on how to set the PATH environment in cgywin.

04:18:20saratogayou still need to do make and then make zip (or make install I think) just like a regular build
04:18:43saratogasince i guess the sim is pretty much a standard rockbox build, just one that targets SDL instead of a specific hardware device
04:19:11psycho_maniaci did both and there are no files in the archos folder. im looking in "rockbox/sim/archos" correct?
04:19:34Lloreanpsycho_maniac: How sure are you that there are no files after "make install"? The .rockbox folder ought to be hidden...

04:28:42blistov_hey, can someone update the e200 brick article here:
04:29:00scorcheoverwriting only replaces the files that are already there
04:29:12scorcheblistov_: what needs updating about it?
04:29:14blistov_and mention that when you boot into the recovery partion, there will be a file called version.txt, that MUST be removed
04:29:25scorcheit doesnt have to be
04:29:27Lloreanblistov_: I've never had to remove it when restoring a firmware file.
04:29:36blistov_i have another issue then.
04:29:42blistov_i completely bricked my device.
04:30:01blistov_there's a thread on it here
04:30:03krazykiti doubt that, unless you were dicking around in preboot mode
04:30:25psycho_maniacrockboxui.exe does not exist
04:30:35blistov_used the installer on my first try, it used sanspatcher 0.4 i believe so i couldn't boot to the OF
04:31:07blistov_got into recovery mode, copied up the mi4 file, rebooted, and it never booted again. had to get a new device.
04:31:21keanublistov_, define: never booted again
04:31:25psycho_maniacthis is all i did. made a new folder, ran configure and picked simulator, ran make, now what?
04:31:37blistov_power comes on, blue light shines blue, that is all.
04:31:43scorcheblistov_: i dont see you performing the steps on that page
04:31:45blistov_can't boot to recovery mode.
04:31:47psycho_maniaci also did make install
04:31:52keanuso you overwrote the bootloader...

04:32:09blistov_won't go into manufacture mode either.

04:32:30scorcheit isnt a doesnt perfrom POSt
04:32:37saratogaalso, if you're going to defraud sandisk, at least don't post about it in the forums
04:32:42saratogabetter yet, just don't do that
04:32:53blistov_well anywho.
04:32:53scorcheblistov_: just follow those instructions and it will work
04:32:55keanuand in order for it to not go into Manu Mode, you'd need to mess up the I2C rom
04:33:03blistov_thats all fine and good.
04:33:18blistov_i documented in the thread exactly what i did, and the results.
04:33:22scorcheblistov_: for the sake of curiosity, what happens when you tried to put it into manufactuing mode?
04:33:38scorchedefine nothing
04:33:47blistov_blue light on.
04:33:49blistov_that is all.
04:33:56scorchethat *is* manufactuing mode
04:33:57blistov_screen doesn't turn on, backlight doesn't turn on.
04:34:15scorche...that is exactly what it is supposed to do
04:34:23keanu"I couldn't find another thread with this problem, so I took it back and replaced the player." - did you try searching...
04:34:35blistov_so how do you recover from that if a usb bus doesn't see the device?
04:34:50blistov_tried that.
04:34:52scorche...just as those instructions say
04:35:00blistov_e200tool doesn't find anything.
04:35:05blistov_its NOT ON THE USB BUS
04:35:12blistov_udev does not see the device.
04:35:23blistov_a strace on the bus does not report that there is anything attached to it.
04:35:33keanuand lsusb?
04:35:33blistov_and the bus does not report any draw on the voltage.
04:35:50scorcheand you help power for 15 seconds and entered manufactuing mode again?
04:36:05keanuturn off the Sansa, turn on hold, hold select/center, and turn on. that should force it into Manu mode
04:36:08scorcheand do you still have this device?
04:36:16blistov_and lsusb shows nothing. nor will it ever if the usb bus doesn't see the device.
04:36:29keanublistov_, then obviously your computer has a problem
04:36:51blistov_keanu, you use obviously pretty lightly.
04:37:00blistov_my computer doesn't have a problem.
04:37:07Lloreanblistov_: Prove it.
04:37:13LloreanThough honestly it could also be a faulty Sansa
04:37:17LloreanBut what it's not is version.txt
04:37:23LloreanAn assumption you decided to jump to just as lightly.
04:37:40 Join Bam2550 [0] (
04:37:44LloreanWith no experimentation, and a single experience weighed against the experience of dozens of other people.
04:38:00blistov_llorean, i experimented for about 5 hours.
04:38:05keanuIt could be multiple things. However, messing up recovery mode can't cause this issue
04:38:09Lloreanblistov_: With a known good Sansa?
04:38:15blistov_i did try everything i found in the forums, and everything mentioned so far.
04:38:21scorcheas i said, do you still have the device?
04:38:38blistov_and yes, the player worked until i installed rockbox with the official installer.
04:38:47Lloreanblistov_: That's not "known good"
04:38:49blistov_and no i do not have the device. i replaced it.
04:38:49keanublistov_, I've "bricked" my sansa at least a dozen times during testing - I've overwrote the i2c rom, the bootloader, and firmware (which seems worse than what you did) and I still recovered it
04:38:53LloreanThat's "Know that the main firmware works"
04:39:07Lloreanblistov_: Did you ever verify the manufacturing mode worked prior to installing Rockbox?
04:39:29blistov_wait, no.
04:39:32saratoga"I put the player in manufacture mode and renamed rockboxpatch.c to BL_SDboardSupport.rom and patched it to my player with e200tool."
04:39:33blistov_verified recovery worke.d
04:39:37saratogaamazing forums post
04:39:39LloreanSo, it's not "known good"
04:40:02keanusaratoga, renamed a C file to the bootloader?
04:40:17blistov_llorean, how can you possibly prove something is NOT broken at some level?
04:40:27Lloreanblistov_: Recovery mode works absolutely fine for everyone else without removing the .txt file, and whatever caused your problem was either a corrupted .mi4 file you copied over, or some other flaw with your player.
04:40:34Bam2550back once again. Say i made a new "phrase" in the english.lang file. it was called GameBoy Games and it was on the Main Menu. How could i add ROMs to the GameBoy "phrase" thing.
04:40:35blistov_its really difficult to determine a negative, let alone prove it.
04:40:58keanublistov_, simply put, nobody has needed to remove version.txt, so I don't think the wiki article will be updated
04:41:15saratogablistov_: its actually quite easy, just get the device to work, and then you know its not broken
04:41:36Lloreansaratoga: Or rather, the specific function of the device in question
04:41:44LloreanYou don't know everything works, but you do have a "it was working before" at least
04:41:45safetydan_Bam2550, you'll need to add an entry to the menu code if you're trying to do what I think you're trying to do.
04:41:54blistov_i know it was working before.
04:42:02keanublistov_, define: what
04:42:16keanublistov_, what was working before?
04:42:19Lloreanblistov_: We've covered that you don't know that manufacturing mode worked, which depends on different code in a different place than the main firmware.
04:42:20blistov_and saratoga, something working according to your observation is not definitive proof that NOTHING is broken.
04:42:36LloreanMy point is simply that you jumped to a conclusion about version.txt
04:42:48LloreanWithout testing it on the other, "working" player
04:42:50saratogablistov_: sure it is, provided you've defined "working" properly
04:43:10blistov_anywho, funny how you have a definitive answer "blistov is wrong, and there is no problem" and not one of you has even asked what OS i'm running.
04:43:13scorcheblistov_: something not working according to your observation is not definitive proof that something has to be is broken.
04:43:24saratogai mean, we're talking about an arbitrary test right? just define the test in such a way that you get arbitrarily high certainy
04:43:25Bam2550safetydan_, how hard do you think it will be?
04:43:38saratogascientific method and all that stuff
04:43:42saratogait works quite well
04:43:44scorcheblistov_: because it has worked for dozens of other people many many times....
04:43:45safetydan_Bam2550, what do you know of programming in C?
04:44:00Bam2550little amount
04:44:01scorcheblistov_: do you still ahve the device, so i can prove this to you?
04:44:05Lloreanblistov_: You're wrong about version.txt
04:44:11blistov_i didn't say i was right.
04:44:20Lloreanblistov_: You complained about us telling you you're wrong
04:44:27LloreanIf you are wrong, it doesn't matter that we've told you so.
04:44:46keanublistov_, you said udev, lsusb, etc - that means it's unix based
04:44:56blistov_unix based is pretty broad.
04:45:02saratogawho cares
04:45:05keanublistov_, VERSION Rhapsody IRC Version 0.28b Beta - Linux
04:45:06Bam2550safetydan_, im guessing it will be hard
04:45:12keanuI just proved you use Linux
04:45:16blistov_no you didn't.
04:45:23blistov_you proved that irc reports such.
04:45:24keanuctcp says otherwise...
04:45:32Lloreanblistov_: Yes, and you can lie to us as well
04:45:33saratogablistov_: can you please prove you exist before continueing
04:45:49LloreanThere's no point in having this argument.
04:45:55LloreanThe wiki page doesn't need changed, at least on that issue
04:45:55keanuLlorean, agreed
04:45:57saratogaprove we're having this argument
04:46:03LloreanIf you ever actually do some testing and figure out what you really did wrong, let us know.
04:46:07blistov_like i said, i was just reporting my experience with the official installer.
04:46:19LloreanFor example, did you check an MD5 checksum of the MI4 you copied in recovery mode before disconnecting?
04:46:44safetydan_Bam2550, does something similar to what I think you're trying to achieve. Take a look at that patch to see what's needed
04:47:37blistov_you don't want to know if i did an md5 sum. you're trying to steer the solution to "blistov did something wrong" instead of "what went wrong".

04:48:09LloreanSo either something was wrong with the original firmware or hardware of your sansa, or you did something wrong
04:48:18LloreanSince we can't fix anything with the original firmware, we only care what you did.
04:48:54LloreanIf you care about "what went wrong" in Recovery Mode, and want to assume that you are infallible, go talk to Sansa, as it's their code that must've buggered things up.
04:49:13blistov_the official installer does not install a usable instance of rockbox. this has been tested on two devices. the first one bricked when i copied the mi4 file (as described in the thread) and would not go into recovery mode, and e200tool couldn't see the device in manufacture mode. period.
04:49:18keanuLlorean, talked to Sandisk? ;)
04:49:26Lloreankeanu: Sandisk, yeah
04:49:32blistov_i won't claim to be infallible, but you're insisting that i'm wrong, period.
04:49:36blistov_that solves nothing.
04:49:40safetydan_Bam2550, you could add another entry for games yes
04:49:41Lloreanblistov_: You are wrong about version.txt
04:49:42keanublistov_, are you sure USB support is working on your computer
04:50:00blistov_even if i was wrong, then i'm still not sure how two devices failed to run rockbox after using the official installer.
04:50:02blistov_there IS a bug.
04:50:03Lloreanblistov_: But sansapatcher does fail to boot the original firmware, this isn't denied anywhere.
04:50:04Bam2550safetydan_, how do i add patches =0 im searching ATM for an article but no real luck.
04:50:16Lloreanblistov_: But everyone else can boot Rockbox after using sansapatcher, just not the original firmware.
04:50:21keanublistov_, Rockbox doesn't modify the bootloader, so I can't see why Recov mode wouldn't work
04:50:22blistov_i'm not saying anyone denies that.
04:50:29LloreanSo, are you claiming that hundreds of users are not experiencing this bug, but only you are?
04:50:33blistov_does the official installer use the correct version of sanspatcher?
04:50:37LloreanOr could it be possible that there *is* something wrong with your USB?
04:50:45blistov_there is nothing wrong with my usb.
04:50:49blistov_nor my usb hub.
04:50:50keanublistov_, how do you know?
04:50:54Lloreanblistov_: 1) Which "official installer" do you refer to?
04:51:00blistov_nor the i2c reporting
04:51:15keanublistov_, how do you know USB is working on your computer?
04:51:51Lloreanblistov_: Are you talking about "Rockbox Utility"?
04:51:55blistov_every other device i connect to it works correctly. while this doesn't prove anything, i also had the same results on another computer.
04:52:13keanublistov_, have you tested a different usb cable?
04:52:19Bam2550Thanks Dan
04:52:28blistov_two devices, each came with a new cable.
04:52:34keanui find it *very* hard to believe you can't get two Sansas working
04:52:50blistov_keanu, seriously, i've said this thrice now.
04:53:00Lloreanblistov_: You've also not answered a very specific question about what program you were using.
04:53:02blistov_i got the second device working, by manually installing.
04:53:04keanublistov_, notice "find" and "believe"
04:53:25keanublistov_, you said Recov mode didn't work on the second one...
04:53:53keanublistov_, nvm, read it wrong
04:53:57blistov_recovery didn't even come up after installation, and an attempt at recovery on the FIRST device.
04:54:30blistov_the only thing i did differently during the recovery on the second device, is that i deleted the version.txt file before unmounting.
04:54:47keanublistov_, and the second
04:54:52blistov_works fine.
04:54:55scorcheblistov_: as it seems you arent willing to see things any other way, why dont you send the device to me, so i can prove this to you?
04:55:14keanublistov_, and you are sure that the MD5sums of the file put on the Sansas were the same?
04:55:45blistov_scorche, really? i've already said .... 4 times now that the origional (very bricked) device, was returned
04:55:53Lloreanscorche, keanu: I suspect he has me on ignore. Ask him if he was using "Rockbox Utility", and when it was compiled.
04:55:57blistov_keanu, positive the md5 sums came up the same.
04:56:13keanublistov_, what was the md5sum?
04:56:22scorchethen why are we even arguing about this, since you cannot do tests on the device to see if you did things right or wrong?
04:56:29keanublistov_, did you use "Rockbox Utility" and if so, when was it compiled?
04:56:49keanublistov_, what firmware version?
04:57:09blistov_i also tried that version on my new device, and it worked fine.
04:57:17keanuhold on...I need to see if I can even find 1.00.12
04:57:31Lloreankeanu: Seriously, stop talking with him, he seems to have no interest in actually tracking down the problem with whatever "official installer" he claims to have used.
04:57:42blistov_chill llorean.
04:58:03Lloreanblistov_: No, I won't. You claim there's a problem with our software, and the one person who's asking you questions about what of our software you used is the one person you're ignoring.

04:59:00blistov_thats whats posed on the site.
04:59:17blistov_what good is rockbox without the ability to boot to disk mode?
04:59:30scorcheit is a bug
04:59:32blistov_i'm not saying the rockbox utility bricked my device.
04:59:53blistov_i'm saying it should be mentioned in the installation instructions that you can't actually use the rockbox util if you want a working device.
05:00:08scorcheit works on some devices...on others, it doesnt
05:00:10Lloreanblistov_: The instructions actually clearly state that we make no guarantee that any of our software will do anything at all
05:00:33Lloreanblistov_: We cannot predict whether you'll have a problematic device, or whether the currently available build or installer is a buggy version: You are not using released software.
05:00:44LloreanIf you fear things not working well, wait until an official release version of Rockbox is made, and use that.
05:00:50blistov_i'm not giving anyone shit for something not working, i'm saying it should be mentioned that the installer doesn't work on this device. the instructions specifically written for the e200 say you can use the rbutil.
05:01:00Lloreanblistov_: Because many people, including me, can.
05:01:05Bam2550-Can i manually add what is in the patches instead of using a patch? (i know its harder, im just wondering if i can)
05:01:23Bam2550instead of using a patch tool*
05:01:23Lloreanblistov_: And when the next version is uploaded, it'll work fine again, or may have new strange bugs. The manual says "Draft" for a reason.
05:01:25scorcheBam2550: of course..that is all a patching program does
05:02:33Lloreanblistov_: If you want to be helpful, compile an SVN version of RBUtil, verify whether it works installing the bootloader on your player since you have one of the problematic ones, and if it does let us know so we can upload a working version.
05:02:35keanublistov_, you can't boot the OF due to a bug we're working on's not our fault you decided to try Rockbox while we're fixing the bug.
05:02:54blistov_thats piss poor documentation skillz. i dig rockbox, but someone needs to either fix the documentation (ie, link to utilities that DO work, or at least mention that a certain utility is live code...)
05:02:55keanublistov_, use v0.2 of sansapatcher and it will work
05:03:11blistov_keanu, again, i know sansapatcher 0.2 works.
05:03:15Lloreanblistov_: The manual says DRAFT
05:03:15blistov_i've got everything working.

05:04:24Lloreanblistov_: Now quit complaining about the fact that you missed this fact, one we don't exactly hide, and try to help us fix things by testing the SVN version instead of the somewhat old build and let us know if it solves your problem.
05:04:36blistov_... and assuming you're a dev, i won't tell you your method is WRONG, but I will point out that its generally bad practice to point your end user documentation to live code.

05:20:56Soapthe testing list?
05:21:16SoapI assume you get a set of steak knives - the same thing you get when you join the checking list.
05:21:42krazykitwha... i didn't get steak knives!
05:22:49psycho_maniaci wouldnt mind joining that but i want to know what im in for.
05:22:56LloreanVery little.
05:23:08LloreanIt comes with no obligation.
05:24:03Soapohh, I thought you were referring to a mailing list - see what happens when I assume? You're just pledging your undying love to Bagder, and saying you will make yourself available for testing.
05:24:36Bam2550I'm looking at a .patch file in Dev-C++ and im wondering, does it matter where i add things? Also do i add the parts with the −−- and +++ and @@ in the beginning?
05:24:55krazykitBam2550, it matters very much
05:25:05Bam2550How do i know where to put it?
05:25:05krazykit−−- means the line is removed, +++ means it's added
05:25:29krazykit@@ is the line it starts at or near
05:25:53Bam2550@@ -86,6 +86,7 @@ means?
05:26:00krazykitline 86
05:26:39Bam2550so i add it after line 86?
05:27:13Bam2550nvm found the answer
05:27:13krazykitwell, this really isn't rockbox related anymore, so it's offtopic. i'd google around for "manually applying patches"
05:27:47Bam2550can i just ask one question? Do i need to add the −−- and +++ and @@ parts?
05:28:08scorchesubtract the −−−−, add the +++
05:28:32Bam2550so dont put in the −−- and keep the +++?
05:28:32krazykitbut don't have +++,−−-, or @@ in the code itself when you do
05:28:50Bam2550oh i see now
05:29:07krazykitif your line is "+++ if whatever;" you'd put in the code, "if whatever;"
05:29:48Bam2550if the line is −−- if whater"
05:29:54Bam2550then dont even add it?
05:31:27krazykitno, that's the line you're removing
05:32:05Bam2550Way too confusing, im just going to try to find out how to use cygwin to do it.

05:34:46psycho_maniacsdoyon: what does the patch do?
05:35:42sdoyonIt's FS #7774: use a callback to manage voice in lists. Hooked up to menus and option_screen... Not rocket science, but I'd like more testing before committing something like that.
05:36:07sdoyonIn particular the hover mechanism from the file browser is revamped.

05:37:46Bam2550krazykit, what is the root of my souce directory o.0
05:38:11LloreanIs that beep used anywhere else but in playback?
05:38:13sdoyonOh did I forget an #ifdef there...

05:39:41Bam2550because thats where the video_menu.patch file is
05:40:16krazykityeah, then if you cd there, you can just run patch -p0 < video_menu.patch
05:41:18Bam25501 out of 4 hunks FAILED
05:41:40sdoyonLlorean: no.
05:42:06Lloreansdoyon: Considering it's in the playback menu, and it's supposed to be the playback beep, why is the beep in the keyboard tied to a playback setting?
05:42:19krazykitBam2550, i'm not going to walk you through this one. i've got work to get to, sorry. good luck manually patching that bit, though!
05:42:34Bam2550i dont even know what a hunk is
05:42:38Bam2550so this will be interesting
05:42:40Lloreansdoyon: It seems to me either the setting needs to be moved, or the beep should be tied to something else.
05:42:55psycho_maniacwhat patch are you using Bam2550?
05:43:06krazykitBam2550, my final hint is, see the file it failed on? there's that file with a .rej that tells you what failed
05:43:51psycho_maniacBam2550: do you have the patch number?
05:43:57Bam2550erm hold on
05:44:43psycho_maniacim not saying this is it but the last time a patch i used had a "hunk failed" the patch needed up dating
05:45:05 Quit RoC_MasterMind ("Leaving")
05:45:24sdoyonLlorean: You're right I guess. I suppose the two uses don't have much in common, so I wouldn't move the setting. I could either make the beep depend on talk_menus_enabled, or say something instead of beeping.
05:46:39psycho_maniacthat patch seems pretty old. april of 07.
05:47:27Lloreansdoyon: I personally think depending on "talk_menus_enabled" is fine, but I'm not wholly sure how others would feel.
05:48:45psycho_maniacBam2550: that patch is also closed
05:49:30sdoyonLlorean: well... unless you think it would be nice even for sighted users, I think I'll do just that.
05:49:30psycho_maniacrejected more like it.
05:52:14Lloreansdoyon: I don't think it's very useful for sighted users, honestly.
05:52:19Bam2550now ill be off to look for another Video menu thing

08:07:47Isolinearpsycho_maniac: Correct. Although scrolling margins would be nice.. :)
08:09:33spkyvisual eq would be cool on wps too
08:09:44psycho_maniacgood luck with that one
08:10:33IsolinearThe bg I used is from a user on deviantArt, so I'd have to make sure there are no legal issues with it and such.
08:11:12psycho_maniacyou can have multiple fonts on the wps but you have to compile your own build with the patch.
08:11:39spkyhow do i do that?
08:11:44spkyi'm a nub mind yo u
08:11:54IsolinearI like the idea of multifont too, but that patch isn't really mature yet.
08:12:10psycho_maniacIsolinear: looks nice although might not be on the player itself but the font seems small. but probably just right on the player itself
08:12:46spkyi like the size/weight of nimbus-19
08:13:45Isolinearpsycho_maniac: I had to compromise... I'd prefer a bigger font for the WPS, but then the menu font would be huge as well... I have a playlist of almost 2000 items and I need to see more than 10 lines on the screen when I'm scrolling... lol
08:13:55IsolinearI hate the Nimbus fonts.
08:14:09spkythe font isnt that great, like i said, size/weight
08:14:10IsolinearMy WPS uses Verdana, which IMO is easier to read.

08:46:43RYd3RI got the one off the rockbox site so that should work right?
08:46:45amiconnLinusN: Mechanical wheel vs. touch wheel, no headphone detection vs. headphone detection, and some other subtle hardware differences

08:54:36RYd3RIs there a certain file structure you should follow with rockbox?
08:54:39GodEater_RYd3R: that sounds to me like you've been upgrading your rockbox install in bits
08:55:03GodEater_like, you've only taken parts of the zip file, and not all of it
08:56:00RYd3RWell. kinda.. I've tried a bunch of different things... quite a few times.. then tried another clean install and Hmm.. haha.. I've tried so many things in 3 days now I don't remember...
08:56:17GodEater_a "clean" install is unnecessary
08:56:30RYd3RWhat's the best way of starting over..? To make sure I can track the issue?
08:56:33GodEater_just unzip a new to your player

09:06:38amiconnThat's not entirely true... manual commits don't, and rbuitl commits neither
09:06:51amiconncredits uses docs/CREDITS
09:06:55LinusNtrua again
09:07:14RYd3RWhat if I want to keep the themes... do I have to copy over those folders to? Or can I leave them alone? And better off to extract the themes again..
09:07:18amiconnMaybe we need a somewhat more fine-grained check
09:07:35LinusNis it really that bad?

09:08:50amiconnWell, a useless rebuild comsumes cpu power, delays rebuild for subsequent commits when there are several in quick succession, and increases the risk of hanging builds

09:34:37GodEater_syn4pse: you can copyright whatever you like - you can't change the license without all copyright holder's permission though
09:35:38syn4pseok, so it just stays berkeley. is there any reason why i should worry about that? will it interfere with the rockbox license?
09:35:59GodEater_do you mean it's a BSD license ?
09:36:36syn4psenot sure. on his webpage he says the code is in the public domain.
09:37:15syn4psein his comments he says cpright joe blow, 2000 all rights reserved <berkeley license>

09:40:46GodEater_best check with Bagder / LinusN though

09:42:36syn4pseso it's not like the intellectual property is all his, if that matters. but i'm not a lawyer and don't remotely want to be.

11:26:56Zagorhost mode isn't terribly complex if all we want is copy files, for instance
11:27:49linuxstbspiorf: You could remove the Apple firmware completely - install the Rockbox bootloader with the command "ipodpatcher -we" (I think...)
11:27:50spiorfamiconn, i meant some little code-editing to prevent the original firmware from starting at all
11:28:16spiorflinuxstb, i only care about the disk mode of the original firmware
11:28:24spiorfit will be kept if i do that?
11:29:02linuxstbYes. Are you saying that the "emergency disk mode" (the one Rockbox reboots into) also recreates the Apple folder structure?
11:29:30 Join barrywardell [0] (
11:29:35linuxstbInserting USB shouldn't cause Rockbox to start the original Apple firmware, unless you have the hold switch turned on.
11:30:06spiorflinuxstb, if i put the ipod on the dock while it is off, it starts the original firmware
11:30:32linuxstbWith the hold switch off? That's odd...
11:30:51linuxstbAre you _sure_ it's the original firmware, and not the emergency (black and white) disk mode?
11:31:11spiorfi am _sure_, it asks me the language everytime
11:31:28linuxstbAnd you're running the official bootloader?
11:31:56spiorfmaybe an old one
11:32:10spiorfi don't remember the last time i updated the bootloader
11:33:00linuxstbThere are possibly patched bootloaders around that start the Apple firmware on the Nano when USB is inserted - the disk mode in the Apple firmware is much faster that the emergency disk mode on the Nano.
11:33:32ddaltonwhat get_action function do I use to find out what button was pressed? (in the wps)

11:34:37ddaltonLinusN: do you know?
11:34:53linuxstbspiorf: The precompiled one - it has tested and known-working bootloaders embedded in it.
11:35:13safetydandoes lowlight have commit access?
11:37:47LinusNddalton: the whole point of the action framework is that you aren't supposed to care which button triggered the action
11:38:17ddaltonLinusN: so what is button = get_action for?
11:38:38pixelmadoes someone have an idea how (or if at all) the build table is accessible for sdoyon?
11:38:46LinusNtha variable name is a remnant from the days where we used button_get() instead

11:44:44linuxstbWhich Linux distro are you using?
11:45:09spiorflinuxstb, it seems ot work: should i remove the bootloader and reinstall it, or just install the new one over the old one?
11:45:12linuxstbthat question was to both barrywardell and spiorf ;)
11:45:25linuxstbspiorf: You should just be able to install over the top.
11:45:50pixelmaddalton: it'll tell you if there was something wrong with your commit e.g. if your commit caused errors on one (or more) of the targets, maybe even let the build fail

11:48:06spiorfit turns light on and off regularly, but cant use menus
11:48:14LinusNddalton: we do it by defining an action that uses the REPEAT attribute, so the action event is resent every repeat interval until the button is release, which triggers the ACTION_WPS_STOPSEEK action

11:48:54barrywardelllinuxstb: thanks. I'll look ino it.
11:48:57linuxstbspiorf: Hmm, some people report that - it seems to be a bug that appears and disappears with different Rockbox builds.

11:49:14delYsidP#7704 updated.
11:49:24LinusNddalton: the actions in question are ACTION_WPS_SEEKFWD, ACTION_WPS_SEEKBACK and ACTION_WPS_STOPSEEK

11:49:54ddaltonok linusN I will keep trying :-)
11:49:58delYsidddalton: justed synced with svn.
11:50:03spiorflinuxstb, for now i can live with that, at least i don't have to delete 4 dirs everytime
11:50:16ddaltondelYsid: ok
11:50:25LinusNddalton: so you don't need to do anything to detect if the button is still pressed, all you do is wait for the ACTION_WPS_STOPSEEK action
11:50:39LinusNthen you know the seek is done
11:50:40spiorflinuxstb, thank you for the help
11:50:58linuxstbbarrywardell: If you give me the bootloaders, I can build the .exe. Also, don't forget to bump the version number (in main.c)
11:51:19ddaltonLinusN: so that is only executed once you let go of the fast forward button?
11:52:21barrywardelllinuxstb: I'll try getting them to compile myself first, if not I'll take you up on that offer :)
11:53:02LinusNthe wps code traps the SEEKFWD and SEEKBACK actions and calls the ffwd_rew function (which is in gui/gwps-common.c), which waits for the STOPSEEK action
11:54:09ddaltonLinusN: what file is "ACTION_WPS_STOPSEEK " in?

12:14:02delYsidddalton: `grep' is your friend if you are looking through source code...

12:36:24ddaltonis 0 ok in rockbox and 1 an error?
12:36:25pondlifeSo it could be put back in when/if we get the EEPROM settings.
12:36:27LinusNbut i need to verify if the player can load rockbox with a flat battery
12:36:45pondlifeI suspect it can't...
12:37:02pondlifeI think I've had that happen on an old bootloader.
12:37:15pondlifeCurrent SVN is nice from that respect.
12:37:18ddaltonwhat does return -1 mean?
12:37:22ddaltonan error?
12:37:33digitalspaghettihey can anyone help, i'm having problems getting my ipod to work correctly in Ubuntu and get rockbox to install. It's my gf's old ipod mini, and it has the name ALEX'S IPOD, mounted at /media/ALEX'S IPOD. I can't find a way to rename it, and I can't get the auto-installer or the patch to recognise it
12:37:34pondlifeddalton: Depends on the function!
12:37:50digitalspaghettiI also see in the cli patcher, it gives me [ERR] Please connect your ipod and ensure it is in disk mode
12:38:00pondlifeddalton: Each function has different return codes.
12:38:04digitalspaghettibut i can see it on my desktop
12:38:07ddaltonPondlife: one I am writing returns int
12:38:46pondlifeWell, if you're writing it, you can define the return codes.. Typically 0 = success though (I think).
12:38:57pondlifeOr return a bool, if it's a true/false type thing
12:39:14digitalspaghettiis there a way to change the mountpoint to just /media/ipod ?
12:41:23 Part agm3nt
12:41:39LinusNddalton: we usually return negative numbers on error
12:41:50ddaltonLinusN: ok
12:44:40digitalspaghettiAhh, ok - figured something out. can someone help here, this is the output of fdisk -l :
12:45:21digitalspaghettiwhen i do ./ipodpatcher /dev/sdg2 i get [ERR] Partition layout is not an ipod and /dev/sdg1 i get [ERR] Bad boot sector signature
12:46:32linuxstbdigitalspaghetti: You should do "./ipodpatcher /dev/sdg"
12:46:53linuxstbdigitalspaghetti: ipodpatcher doesn't care about the mount point - it just needs the raw "whole disk" device
12:47:20digitalspaghettiahh, ok - now I get [ERR] Unknown version number in firmware (00000000)
12:47:36linuxstbDoes the Apple firmware work?
12:47:55digitalspaghettiyea, it's a working ipod, dunno if it's the latest firmware though
12:48:02digitalspaghettii just got it today, it's my gf's old one
12:49:42linuxstbThat's odd. I would suggest upgrading it to the latest Apple firmware, just to make sure that the firmware partition is in a good state. In Linux, you can do that by following steps 2-4 here -
12:50:36linuxstbBut I would also be interested in seeing a copy of your firmware partition - you can back it up by doing something like "dd if=/dev/sdg1 | gzip -9 > backup.bin.gz"

12:58:08digitalspaghettithe auto installer now auto-recognises my mount point and type of ipod
12:58:17digitalspaghettibut when i then try install, it says no ipod found :/
12:58:23linuxstbIt's probably just cached from the last time you used rbutil.
12:58:33linuxstb(I assume you selected it manually)
12:58:42digitalspaghettiahh, ok

13:03:10linuxstbipodpatcher doesn't let you pick - it detects automatically.
13:03:24digitalspaghettiahh, ok
13:03:42digitalspaghettiso it doesn't depend of what .rockbox i've installed on my ipod
13:04:47linuxstbrbutil may use that, but ipodpatcher doesn't. I would suggest just sticking with ipodpatcher - if that doesn't work, rbutil won't either (rbutil uses ipodpatcher, then adds more on top).
13:05:14digitalspaghettihmm i've got vista on another partition, maybe i should see if I can format the ipod and make sure it's up to date
13:05:43linuxstbJust follow that link I gave you to upgrade the firmware from Linux - it's simply a matter of downloading it, and using dd to write it to /dev/sdg1
13:05:54GodEater_using vista will likely cause you even more problems...

13:22:42anarchoVegandoes anyone know why my apple partition in my ipod is empty? it worked for a few days but then for some reason everything disapeared from the apple partition so i can't view any videos now :(
13:23:26linuxstbanarchoVegan: You mean that the Apple firmware can't see your videos, or Rockbox can't see any files?

13:23:54anarchoVeganApple firmware is completely empty
13:24:09GodEater_anarchoVegan: how would you know ?
13:24:19anarchoVegani rebooted into it
13:24:42GodEater_that doesn't mean it's empty
13:24:43linuxstbanarchoVegan: That sounds like an issue with the Apple firmware - Rockbox doesn't touch any of the files used by the Apple firmware.
13:24:50anarchoVeganbut when I go into the ipod_control folder in the ipod on the computer, all the files seem to be there
13:25:12anarchoVeganalthough they have letter names like GTPQ AND JDFQ
13:25:15anarchoVeganooh ok
13:25:19GodEater_anarchoVegan: find something which will rebuild the iTunesDB on the ipod then
13:25:46anarchoVeganok thanks for the advice :D
13:26:16anarchoVeganis there a way to do that in Linux?
13:26:48linuxstbI expect gtkpod can do it, but discussion of Apple's firmware is off-topic for #rockbox
13:27:57digitalspaghettilinuxstb, is the cause of rockbox not working on a 2nd gen nano known?
13:28:19digitalspaghettii.e. is there a workaround in action, or someone needed to try work it out?
13:28:24linuxstbThe "cause" is that it's completely new hardware and no-one has ported Rockbox to it.
13:28:56digitalspaghettiis the svn public for read access?
13:28:59linuxstbRockbox doesn't work by accident, it takes months/years of hard work to port to a new target.
13:29:38pondlifeHmm, it'd be good if things did work by accident more often....

16:19:53newbn1s: in a for loop, an expression is used for the upper bound (BUF_SIZE/...) −− don't remember exactly. I suggested to calculate the upper bound before entering the loop and use the var as the upper bound.
16:20:20linuxstbnewb: You mean a loop of the form: for (i=0;i<(BUF_SIZE/...);i++) { }
16:20:34n1snewb: aha, I'm pretty sure gcc optimizes that
16:20:36newblinuxstb: yes.
16:20:44linuxstbThat's optimisation 101...
16:21:03n1sanyway I can test if it makes a difference, thanks
16:21:33newblinuxstb: if you're sure then it's ok. I just don't know what gcc does regarding this
16:21:54newbn1s: just look at the generated asm code
16:22:02linuxstbI'm just assuming - you're right to question it, but it's so common, and appears everywhere in every C program I've ever seen...
16:22:04amiconnn1s: You can never be sure what gcc optimizes. Sometimes it does clever things, sometimes it's just braindead
16:22:28n1samiconn: very true
16:22:38newbn1s: BTW: I managed to hang my H120 while playing MIDI the other day. Had to use paper clip.
16:23:03n1swhat di you do to hang it?
16:23:48newbn1s: I can't remember exactly. I'd provide more details if I did :-/
16:24:27amiconnAnd the fact that gcc optimizes a specific construction on x86 doesn't mean it optimizes the same thing for other architectures
16:24:32n1snewb: did it hang when you pressed a button?
16:25:03newbn1s: how is midi supposed to work? If the file can't be played at 100% (too complicated, too many channels, etc.), should it play at a slower speed? Or play at proper speed but with instruments not synchronized?

16:33:47XavierGrwill you be able to test a firmware file after I get this clear with Slasheri
16:34:04XavierGrI would do it but I don't think I will be able to unbrick it if something goes wron

17:06:36linuxstbilovegamestah: Have you looked at the website?
17:07:14linuxstbKlevi: Yes, it will. The Rockbox bootloader takes the place of the Sansa firmware in the firmware partition. So you'll just need to rerun sansapatcher after upgrading.

17:14:09pixelmaI know that low_light and me for example run different firmwares (mine's rather old 1.00.4F) and his is the latest recommended 1.01.00, I think - he had to implement slightly different routines to make rebooting into the of from running Rockbox work)
17:14:41pixelmaKlevi: the sansa of tells you its version in the system menu IIRC

19:13:15Crash91anyway....we would have to redesign the rockbox UI if we even want it to do basic stuff
19:13:50n1salso btw there is a port being developed for the mrobe 500 which has a touchscreen
19:14:32Crash91how is it gonna be used...and im confident it has more than ONE button..
19:15:15Tanuvaone could do many things with such touch device, but implementing it alternatively to the current interface would be hard imho

19:47:16troxoris there usually anything besides manually copy/pasting the changes and re-diffing that the mighty original patch makers do to streamline this?
19:47:27scorche|wNico_P: they do here....they are just of our aux-in cable :)
19:47:32Nico_Ptroxor: best is to apply the patch and then manually apply the rej files

19:48:34Nico_Pthat can be easier because svn up will do more work for you than patch and will mark the conflicts for you
19:49:37Nico_P(when I say more work I mean better merging work, so less rejects/conflicts)

22:56:49ashesis there an alternative to running fwpatcher.exe under wine?
22:56:57rasherashes: rbutil
22:57:04rasherashes: Rockbox Utility, I should say
22:58:04ashesand, im getting a new battery tommorrow. my current battery dies after about 2 minutes. should i wait until i install the new battery before installing rockbox, or is there no difference?
22:58:58rasherThat doesn't matter
22:58:59amiconnWhoah, the rockboy event code is one big mess...

23:00:49amiconn...and it looks like rockboy won't work atm on the following targets where it's compiled for: iPod 1st, 2nd, 3rd gen, Mini 1st gen, probably iFP7xx, and Sansa c200
23:01:27Klevi..Roms emulate on the C200
23:01:37KleviWhy wouldnt it?

23:01:51amiconnNo button actions mapped
23:02:10Klevioh I thought you meant that it literally just wont work at all
23:02:19amiconnAnother problem for playability (not emulation itself) on c200 might be the display resolution
23:02:32KleviYeah, it is really bad xD
23:02:48amiconnGameboy is 160*144, while c200 is only 132*80 - quite heavy downscaling
23:02:54KleviI was wondering if theres a way to wide screen the display to take up the whole screen?

23:03:40amiconnThat didn't stop us to have an experimental rockboy for archos - at only 112*64, with very few fps due to its slow cpu
23:04:06KleviI noticed the sansa is prettty slow on framerate too
23:04:43Klevithat doesnt make too much sense, though, isnt DOOM heavier on a processor than a gameboy game?
23:04:54amiconnThe c200 has a weird LCD controller hookup that *is* slow - it's in fact surprising that mpeg video runs as nice as it does now
23:05:11Kleviyou can play the video on Mpeg player now/

23:06:06Bagderanyone seen if it fixes the warnings?
23:06:16n1stoo bad there's no changelog :-/
23:06:29amiconnn1s: There must be a reason why...
23:06:30Bagderstorebror has it now, so I guess we'll see soon enough

23:07:04pixelmaok, Mario works, it's a bit tiny but it's playable I'd say and a "simple" rom like that runs quite well
23:07:32LloreanKlevi: Logically you'd think Doom would require more, but remember that Rockboy isn't just running the games, it's emulating a full set of hardware, whereas Doom is compiled as native code.
23:07:56Klevimm true.
23:08:28*amiconn upgrades
23:08:30Bagdernah, warnings remain
23:08:36Klevipixelma, you can play it?
23:08:38***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
23:08:44Klevibtw, I need that rom >> lol
23:09:39amiconnBagder: I really wonder what's up with those warnings - the pointers are cast to exactly what the function wants
23:09:50Bagderyes, I've checked it out as well
23:09:57amiconnEven casting to void* doesn't get rid of them
23:10:03Bagderreally weird how they managed to do a regression on that
23:10:27amiconn...but passing NULL cast to the proper pointer format silences them (of course the code won't work then...)
23:10:45amiconnIt almost looks like the cast is basically ignored

23:12:45Nico_Phow come the warnings only appear on some builds and never the same ? different GCC versions ?

23:34:52ashesthe rockbox utility doesn't want to use the US firmware, because it's not installed, i think. it's saying 'couldn't detect firmware type'
23:35:06ashesdoesn't want to install the EU firmware
23:37:38n1sashes: it can not even know which firmware version you have on your player
23:37:59n1sit should work with EU, whihc bersion are you trying to patch?

23:43:27Bagderthe only minor nit I could think of is that it duplicates the define instead of using the same one, but If figure that might not be too easily done
23:43:40Nico_Pwhich define ?
