00:14:34kugelhowever, I'm not too happy with it
00:14:57kugelI needed to make two fake reset_track_list functions
00:15:18kugelthe problem was, that the tracklist isn't updated after a change in the settings
00:15:36kugelI'm gonna upload the version in a few minutes, so that you can take a look
00:16:02kugelbut still, I've fixed some issues the original version has

00:24:10RedbrevaRegarding At the moment, as you are probably aware, we are in the process of preparing a new server/host. One of the problems with the current host is the limited bandwidth available. It is currently costing me almost 70 PER MONTH in excess charges.
00:24:31 Part ompaul ("use the /part command to leave one channel at a time")
00:25:20RedbrevaThis months allocation is just about fully used already,just over half way into the month. I have temporaritl removed access to the iPod 5G themes in an effort to reduce my costs (they are the highest call on downloads)
00:26:11Bagderso what's the status on the new host?
00:26:20RedbrevaBut, rest assured, once scorche has the new platform ready - full service will be restored. No Pressure scorche ;-)

00:28:22Redbreva100GB of data downloaded from my site, and an additional 8GB from soaps mirror in 16 days - too many users on rbutil at the moment :-(
00:29:29thegeek_the "download all themes" button should be removed from rbutil.
00:29:35Bagderperhaps we should think of a way to get some contents over on the system
00:29:36thegeek_it's just wasteful

00:32:24RedbrevaI have a mirror on soap server, which worked great for 'normal browsing', but unfortunately it has to be on rb-t.o for rbutil to be able to access it (
00:33:00Redbrevahence the 100/8 split
00:33:04Mouser_XNico_P: ADX seems to be working *much* better than it did in the past. However, it does occasionally have a codec failure still. Out of 30+ ADXs, it failed twice, that I noticed. Sorry again about that. I honestly thought the build I was using was much newer than it was.
00:33:13Bagderwell, rbutil could be poked to do it however we want
00:34:03dionoeaRedbreva: 100 GB would be neglectable on the server i'm thinking about (we server more than 1 TB per day)
00:34:28RedbrevaTrouble is not many of the users seem to update too often - there are still a lot of original rbutil (ie not the qt version)
00:36:02Redbreva1381 accesses to the original rbutil page in 16 days
00:36:16BagderRedbreva: true, but you could remove that page/host name or whatever to force people to upgrade
00:37:27 Join jac0b [0] (
00:38:00RedbrevaI think I will remove that page anyway - so any queries about rbutil failing to download themes - upgrade to latest, rbutil failing to get ipod5G themes - please be patient or visit to get them manually
00:38:08Mouser_XWhat about adding auto-update to RButil? Would that be a useful, or wasteful, idea?
00:38:17DefineBytei was just thinking that
00:38:37DefineByteor at least notify the user that an update is available
00:38:38Mouser_X(Obviously, they'd have to update for that to take effect, but if you force an update anyway, now would be a good time to implement it.)
00:38:41Bagdersounds like a good idea, at least a "check for new version" or similar

00:46:25Mouser_XI turn it off because I don't like it bugging me about a new version... Perhaps if it was more like Firefox's update process, where it does it in the background. Next time you start RButil, it's running the latest version. However, that should be optional. I certainly wouldn't want it to do that without my knowing that it's doing that. If I was aware that the feature was in place, and being used, then I'm fine with it.

07:47:07jharuif i knew how, i would. just dloaded vmware and debian. still figurin everythin out...
07:47:15BigBambiI essentially have a mix or album and artist in my file tree - normally it is /music/artist/album etc. but I might also have /music/album if it is various or /music/composer or /music/performer. I know I could do that with database with creative use of tags, but filetree is so much easier (for me)
07:48:11Mouser_XAll my stuff is from video games. Thus, organizing by artist is impractical, since many games are composed by multiple artists.
07:48:11 Nick fxb is now known as fxb__ (
07:48:36Mouser_XAnd, because they're video game formats, the database usually handles the files very poorly.
07:49:30BigBambiThere is that too.
07:49:33jharubigbambi: just shows you are not organized, lol (one of the first things you learn as a database management student. yay to oracle sql!!!)
07:50:28jharuthats why a search query is essential... so it can search through the various files easy...
07:50:31BigBambiI can see the advantage of the database if you want to say have a playlist of all music from 1992, or all in a certain genre etc., but just for playing albums like me, filetree all the way. Above all I like flexability and not being forced to do it one way because someone else decided it was better
07:51:00BigBambijharu. But I am organised, I have my filetree organised exactly how I want it
07:51:35BigBambiThe point is, I don't want to have to use a search query - I just have an alphabetical list where everything is where I want it
07:51:56jharuorganised but not standardized. ;]

08:01:05BigBambiSo is it more of a windows feature than a FAT32 thing?
08:01:17amiconnBasically they are plain files on fat32, the extension ".lnk" is just hidden in windows
08:01:45BigBambiSo Windows deals with it, and to FAT32 they are just another file
08:01:51amiconnSo they are not true symlinks, but behave very similar
08:01:59BigBambiOK, cheers
08:02:17BigBambiSeems to me if someone wants a similar thing on rockbox for music files they could just use a m3u

09:55:08GodEater_jharu: you'll have to be a bit more specific with your question. What's the problem ?
09:56:59jharuas i said i typed ../tools/configure and a ton of c and h files greeted me. its still showing on my screen waiting for it to finish. i also cant do make zip command.
09:58:00peturand where were you when you typed that?
09:59:03jharucd build_e200
09:59:33peturand it presented you with a table of targets to choose from?
09:59:40jharuis this what you asked?
10:00:15jharuin target you mean this endless c and h files yes.
10:00:56jharusvn co svn:// rockbox

10:02:38markunafter configure did you type 'make' ?
10:02:52LinusNyou mean you typed "mkdir build_e200" ?
10:03:29jharuno. it started sending the .c and the .h files before i typed the make
10:03:56jharulinusn, yes followed it like a book...

10:23:19GodEater_jharu: what are you talking about ? Once you've done "make" it doesn't need any more compiling...
10:24:37scorcheBonusbartus: in order to do that, you must first say your problem ;)
10:24:56jharusorry. im new to vm so i dont know heads or tails.
10:25:09Bonusbartushehe big problem
10:25:27BonusbartusI am thinking about RMAíng my player
10:25:36jharubunusbartus, say it they may fix it.
10:25:59Bonusbartusproblem: battery empty very fast, in latest versions the hdd just keeps spinning, and the music keeps stuttering
10:26:14GodEater_jharu: at no point will you able to compile any part of rockbox (except possibily the sim, and even then I doubt it) with Borland.
10:26:27BonusbartusI first thought it was a broken hdd, but in the iriver firmware I don't have the problem
10:26:34Bonusbartusso I am not sure now...
10:27:03BonusbartusI'm now doing an error scan on my pc, but it doesnt give any errors
10:27:12Bonusbartustill now :)
10:27:51peturBonusbartus: maybe rename/remove the .rockbox tree and do a fresh install?
10:28:18BonusbartusI did, at first I didn't have problems, but after a few hours it got even worse
10:28:34Bonusbartusat first only with a few songs, but now with everything
10:29:04jharudid you drop your unit by any chance?
10:29:26peturwell you can't rma it with rockbox installed and it's no use if the OF works fine of course
10:29:48Bonusbartuswell, the battery is empty too soon in the of too
10:30:11jharu must be the batt then
10:30:24peturand you still have warranty on that?
10:31:03Bonusbartuswell that doesnt explain the stuttering music and spinning hdd, It does that too when connected to my car adapter or any other power source
10:31:13Bonusbartusyep till march 9 2008
10:31:31Bonusbartusmust be about the last 340 they sold :P
10:31:59peturwell if you can make it go wrong with the OF then I'd rma it (flash normal firmware first and remove all traces of rockbox)
10:32:19peturotoh, could be they return you another model!
10:32:52BonusbartusI know, but they will ask u nicely first, I could always ask to send back my damaged player and repair it myself
10:33:00Bonusbartusnew hdd and battery on ebay
10:34:08Bonusbartusbut in the past 3 months, did anything change to the iriver port that could explain my problem?
10:34:23peturit is working fine on mine...
10:34:43jharu?? but hdd spins right? it uses a spindle? and is known to make skipping (just like in my pc.) amd maybe if power from battery is powerful enough it can damage the hdd by power surge.
10:35:27peturjharu, do you even know what a spindle is?
10:36:17pixelmaBonusbartus: what Rockbox revision are you running exactly?
10:36:18jharui mean needle.

11:59:10jharuthen i dont know why. maybe because my mate here uses the latest 17" macbook and im using a crummy old desktop
11:59:43Bagderit's probably because you have a crummy connection from whereever you are to the svn server in Sweden

15:42:28Nico_Ppixelma: what I don't understand is that PF really uses the 4 directions, menu and quit... how problematic can that be? I think it indicates a flaw in the c200 action mapping more than in the system itself
15:42:44 Part LinusN
15:43:03LloreanDoes PF still mix contexts?
15:43:08pixelmathe problem is that "down" = "menu"
15:43:20LloreanSo that's the problem, right there.
15:43:35LloreanYou're only guaranteed to avoid conflicts if you stay within one context, right?
15:43:55pixelmayeah, quite a few plugins do that uses PLA
15:45:13yoavkHow do I add button events to my plugin?
15:45:39Zagoryoavk: rb->button_get()
15:45:50pixelmaLlorean: I would think (and hope) that you could seperate the definitions but didn't care enough to try that in pf
15:46:03yoavkZagor: What does that give me?
15:46:05Nico_Ppixelma: ok looking at the c200 manual helped me understand... how is it in the regular menus? how do you go up and down?
15:46:23pixelmawith up and down
15:46:30Zagoryoavk: the button code
15:46:53Nico_Ppixelma: then where is the "submenu" button used?
15:47:03yoavkZagor: Huh?
15:47:14Nico_PI mean where does it actually open a submenu instead of being simply "down"?
15:47:52LloreanWPS, I think?
15:48:45Nico_Ppixelma: at the risk of repeating myself, this problem looks very c200-specific to me
15:49:11LloreanNico_P: Misusing the action system isn't c200-specific, it's just most obvious when you have less keys.
15:49:20Zagoryoavk: sorry I have no respose fr "Huh?". please rephrase your question.
15:49:48pixelmano, if you combine contexts you'll always risk conflicts in one of the keymaps, no matter what targets.
15:50:27yoavkZagor: Then how do I add a button event (ie When the [play] button is pressed do func();)
15:50:47Lloreanyoavk: Maybe you should look at some of the other plugins for examples.
15:51:13pixelmaNico_P: could have been another target too, and it wouldn't make me wonder if there are
15:51:15Zagoryoavk: while(1) { switch(rb->button_get(true)) { case BUTTON_PLAY: func(); break } }
15:51:42Zagoryoavk: you don't get asynchronous events. you poll.

15:56:33LloreanZagor: There's some method for getting the wheel position. Rockboy divides it into 8 regions for use as buttons, iirc. At least, I think that feature got included eventually.
15:56:52Nico_PI'm starting to thing the best option might be to go back to the #defines

15:58:21Nico_Pkugel: I'm not sure of anything... the other possibility is to give the c200 special treatment
15:59:20Nico_Phaving to think about each target individually is really not going to make me happy though
15:59:51kugelNico_P: Maybe a border should be drawn, those with enough keys can be treated generic, and those with too less keys must be treated specially
15:59:53LloreanOr you could make sure to make all your choices from within one context, right?

16:27:06pixelmaand I bet that you'll find other cases of that - for other targets, in othe PLA plugins
16:27:16kugelaction_std_menu is mapped to the power button
16:27:23kugelmaybe this should be the same in PLA
16:28:43kugelas far is i can see, the rec button is unmapped in PLA

16:28:53kugelmaybe this can be used to quit a plugin
16:29:14Nico_Ppixelma: if each call to pluginlib_getaction specifies one and only one context, there are no more possile conflicts
16:29:46pixelmaand then you need "long power" for "off" again which isn't ideal either. In the pf main screen there would be _no_ problem to map it to "down" - just that it doesn't work in the new list view
16:30:08pixelma^at kugel
16:30:35kugelhaving 2 actions on 1 button is a general problem imo, regardless if it works in all cases except this one
16:30:49pixelmaNico_P: that sounds very complicated
16:31:01*pixelma gives up :(
16:31:23kugelpixelma: what's bad about a long power for off? the e200 does have this
16:32:13Lloreankugel: There are many actions for each button. But only one action PER context. Which is the whole point of contexts, you're not supposed to mix them.
16:32:40kugelI don't mix it
16:33:20pixelmaif you hold it too long, you can easily switch the player off completely. (And btw. I admit I used "long power" for some plugin too, but I'd like to avoid it)
16:34:07kugelas a user of e200, I'm very fine with long power. It's very usable imo
16:34:38pixelmakugel: pf mixes two (otherwise there wouldn't be two different mappings as you found out yourself)...
16:36:52pixelmaand the most interesting (and annoying) thing is - the c200 is actually not short of buttons but some are just a bit awkward in certain circumstances
16:39:29Lloreankugel: There are three contexts defined in pluginlib_actions, and I don't see BUTTON_DOWN repeated for c200 in any of those contexts. Where exactly do you see it being used for more than one thing within the same context?
16:40:09LloreanIt's used in two of the three contexts, so it IS used twice. In two _different_ contexts.
16:41:24kugelOh, yea, my bad, sorry.
16:41:25 Quit webguest49 ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
16:42:06kugelbut rec button is still unused
16:42:25pixelmaI really think that button defines in the plugins are really easier in the end even though it's more to type - but you have more control, spot potential conflicts, don't have to care about what your change may do to other plugins.
16:43:01LloreanThey also mean that you don't end up compromising, saying "Well, it's a little awkward, but it works with the current context" to get your controls to fit.
16:43:07LloreanInstead you customize them for each player nicely.
16:43:14pixelmathe other way would be to have tons of contexts in the lib because there are so many plugins with very different control schemes

16:45:27pixelmamaybe you can have PLA for a few plugins very generic control schemes but that has to be thought through thoroughly
16:45:45kugelBut if a button changes, or a new target with new buttons joins the familiy, you have to edit the buttons for every single plugin

17:44:07LloreanAlright, where do we stand on rejecting tasks now that surely must be rejected at some point in the future.
17:44:36LloreanFor example, I know viewports isn't in yet, but there are several tasks that are going to be rejected when viewports happens. What is the benefit of not rejecting them now?
17:45:17markunLlorean: could they be accepted if viewports never happen?
17:45:19LloreanIt seems to me, at least, that leaving them there is misleading to people who aren't aware of the direction things are supposed to go, as well as encouraging work on a whole host of WPSes and other things that will just require an awful lot of work to bring up to date one day.
17:45:33Lloreanmarkun: Some could, I'm sure.
17:45:58LloreanBut for that, we'd need to be able to say that one day we can say "viewports will never happen"
17:46:21markunor not be afraid to remove that code lateron when viewports do happen
17:46:25LloreanBasically, we need a final "Assume viewports will happen" or "Assume viewports will not happen and start accepting patches" I think, but leaving these in limbo is just problematic, in my mind
17:46:35Soapthat's a solid point, though, markun. I think the current assumption has long been that viewports are a "when" not an "if".
17:47:07markunSoap: I also think so, but it might take years if nobody wants to / can work on it
17:47:31LloreanAnd the current state will then be that in years, people will still be maintaining these limbo patches.
17:47:46LloreanRejecting them now is surely nicer than rejecting them two years from now, when we knew now that they would be.
17:47:56markunwhat about accepting them now?
17:48:02kugelIsn't it against the spirit of open source close those patches just to avoid forks? IMO it is
17:48:10LloreanWe should either starting herding them to acceptance with the intent of removing them with viewports, or reject them clearly
17:48:17Lloreankugel: That's silly
17:48:30LloreanRockbox has already been forked a few dozen times
17:48:46LloreanEvery unsupported build is one, and removing those patches won't make unsupported builds disappear
17:48:54LloreanBut it will make it clear that these features aren't going to enter SVN ever.
17:48:58keanu(copied from -community): if those patches are closed, wouldn't custom builders just sync it themselves, since quite a few themes would stop working?
17:49:04SoapHow possible would it be to make viewports a modular work? Reading linuxstb's document on it - it sure sounds like a monolithic element (at least to get started).
17:49:08Lloreankeanu: And they're more than welcome to.
17:49:28Lloreankeanu: The point isn't to stamp out these patches.
17:49:35kugelActually I don't see the danger that any of the custom builds would overcome the official build
17:49:37GodEater_kugel: no-one's stopping a fork if that's what you want to do - we're really just talking about not hosting those forks.
17:49:39LloreanIt's to clean up the tracker, and make it absolutely clear they aren't getting accepted (if they aren't)
17:49:50Lloreankugel: You're misunderstanding the purpose.
17:49:57keanuLlorean, ah, ok
17:51:09 Join Frazz [0] (
17:51:24keanuIt (possibly) seems that the real use of the tracker is blurred - is it that people use the tracker for hosting patches, rather than trying to get them into the official build?
17:51:36Lloreankeanu: That's the problem, yes
17:51:49keanuLlorean, ok, I think I'm starting to understand now
17:51:53LloreanIts intent is for contributing to Rockbox.
17:52:29LloreanSo I'd like it to become more black and white. Rejections when something is unsuitable. Rejections with comments when "The idea is good, the implementation is unsound, try using X to Y and post a new patch"
17:52:31keanuBut some patches are so popular that they're being synced solely for custom builds
17:52:37*keanu thinks..?
17:52:46LloreanMuch less patches sitting in limbo, forever synced, but never actually had anything done about them
17:52:59GodEater_keanu: we really don't care about the popularity in custom builds
17:53:11GodEater_we want them popular in core rockbox
17:53:13GodEater_or not at all
17:53:14kugelConcerning the several WPS patches. Noone is trying to get them into the build, since they feel that there work will be obsolete with viewports
17:53:15LloreanPopularity doesn't make a patch suitable for inclusion.
17:53:20***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
17:53:23keanuGodEater_, I'm not referring to the popularity of custom builds, but the popularity of the patches in them
17:53:33GodEater_keanu: so am I :)
17:53:34Lloreankugel: Yes, and if they will be obsolute, why shouldn't we close them?
17:53:50hcshow about experimental plugins?
17:53:58Lloreanhcs: Experimental plugins?
17:53:59markunwhy not include them until they become obsolete?
17:54:05Lloreanmarkun: I wouldn't mind that either.
17:54:07keanumarkun, what I was thinking
17:54:20hcsLlorean: like the wiki reader, which i don't forsee ever actually being in the build
17:54:22Lloreanmarkun: My goal is to make things more black and white, I really don't care which direction.
17:54:26GodEater_#ifndef VIEWPORTS <insert-code-here> #endif
17:54:27kugelthe main problem is for me, that I see no progress of viewports at all, and this is why I feel a bit lost within that vicious cycle
17:54:35hcs*in svn
17:54:51peturbecause people will start using them in wps's and get upset when they must change again when viewports arrive
17:54:53Lloreanhcs: Why can't it be included? Touches the core?
17:54:57keanuI don't think it's really a matter of when it will be obsolete, but what will be used instead from the time the patch is closed until the time when something replaces that patch
17:54:57markunwith albumart without MoB the problem was that it would waste memory for people not using it, but I don't think we have that problem of every patch
17:55:13markunof -> for
17:55:15Lloreanmarkun: The only issue is, as petur mentioned, one intent with viewports is to maintain backwards compatibility
17:55:25LloreanMoving from all these patches to viewports will require rewriting of nearly every WPS
17:55:40Lloreankeanu: Why are we obligated to provide placeholders?
17:56:01hcsLlorean: no, just requires a bunch of other tools and a lot of data and isn't really being worked on, seems like it'll be a perpetual proof of concept
17:56:23keanuLlorean, I'm not saying you're obligated, but at the same time, I don't speak for everyone that uses the patches
17:56:49Lloreanhcs: Then it should be closed with "Out of Date" or whatever that close message is. I really don't think though that it can't be included if someone gets it working well.
17:57:02keanuLlorean, I'm just wondering what people will do when they find that the patch is closed with no replacement (until viewports)
17:57:20Lloreankeanu: Some will surely maintain it elsewhere
17:57:45LloreanBut there's also the chance that others will say "Oh, well, I have this other idea, and now that I have this time back, I can work on it..." and maybe contribute something that can be committed?
17:57:52LloreanReally, I'm not too concerned what they do.
17:57:59LloreanI just want to draw the line more clearly
17:58:02peturso the point is: we must start implementing viewports soon :)

18:04:21peturthe tracker is for mainstream rockbox stuff, all the rest should go
18:04:26keanuI can't really see why it should be included though - those who do want to have their own splash screen can do it from the source

20:19:05pixelmaI don't find it very annoying too but that probably depends on usage pattern (the more tabs and different channels with different aim the more annoying, I guess)

21:50:25rp-ahh damn, added a const, which i forgot in the header, thank you
21:51:19ruskiebah I wish all of these player makers would standardise on rockbox for the firmware... currently has the e250 refurbished for 35$ US. Which is a pretty good imho.
21:52:15ruskieI'm not paying for the over-atlantic shipping :)

21:59:35mrkikoThe problem of people searching for players to install rockbox in is becoming frequent; it would be so beautiful having a manufacturer selling out it's players with rockbox installed in.
22:00:00mrkikoDo manufacturers know rockbox?
22:00:34mrkikofrom a bastard point of view, this way they may be able to send theyr players at a lower price: they will not need someone to develop a firmware for them, right?
22:00:55krazykitmrkiko, Sandisk certainly does, and I would be surprised if other ones did not.
22:01:11mrkikoIt may be a little sad consideration for people spending time and passion on robkcox, but would be helpful...
22:01:28ruskiewell for the time being the hack should work... i.e. listen to audio book then somehow store position on the hdd wipe install music... listen until next wipe restore... but I haven't yet figured out how to get last played song from the shuffle...

22:02:08LloreanPart of the problem with a manufacturer shipping with Rockbox installed, is that then people will expect them to provide support for Rockbox
22:02:29ruskiewell why not?
22:02:29krazykitmrkiko, well, Sandisk sent a few players to someone, along with a dev. board. the others, i suspect they keep an eye on what people do with their hardware.
22:02:50ruskieit would provide a common platform to standardize support on...
22:02:58ruskieno retraining for new stuff
22:03:21mrkikothe support consideration effectively is a problem...
22:03:23krazykitruskie, yeah, but you lose the sell point of DRM, so online music stores' music won't work
22:03:42ruskiecan't they install their own plugins that would do DRM?
22:03:48Domonokyno need to discuss this here, discuss it with the manufacturers :-)

22:04:08DefineByteDRM is dying, thankfully
22:04:09Lloreanruskie: Not really
22:04:13ruskiebut DRM seems to be dying anyway
22:04:16ruskieLlorean, how come?
22:04:16LloreanPlugins are linked to the binary, and under the same license.
22:04:30mrkikoruskie: infact
22:04:32LloreanBut, supporting it is also a problem.
22:04:37mrkikobut, as I know: we can use a DRM
22:04:42LloreanAs it's open source, anyone can provide unofficial versions.
22:04:58Lloreanmrkiko: Open Source and DRM cannot mix effectively.
22:05:00Domonokytheoretically you could build a lgpl plugin whitch loads the proprietary drm plugin. :-)
22:05:08LloreanDomonoky: Wouldn't work effectively though
22:05:19LloreanIf you can play back the music in an open source program, you can also dump the decrypted stream to disk.
22:05:36Domonokysure.. but you would have drm support.. :-)
22:05:41BagderDomonoky: not really
22:05:44ruskieso: we only provide support for original XXXX-$manufacturerstring-$version firmware and hardware
22:06:00ruskiekinda solves that
22:06:46ruskieor they could TiVo-ize it... but in a more friendly manner... i.e. you can request the key and thus lose all support for your device related to software

22:11:59krazykitthat violates the GPL.
