00:19:22SaviorYes, my e200 is connected to my computer right now.
00:19:35bobrulesdoes it show the original firmware?
00:19:41bobrulesjust press and hold power

00:30:52SaviorYeah, I've tried all three of the ports on my computer.
00:31:13SaviorAnd it is the original firmware, but it's not on the sync menu
00:31:28case__by the way, i've tried the latest build because all the builds since some time seems to have a pretty anoying issue: the buttons are not mapped as espected (ie, as before, when it was nice to navigate, etc...)
00:31:52krazykitSavior, have you tried the General Trick for fixing Windows (reboot it)?
00:32:05pixelmacase__: that's not an "issue"
00:32:21DefineByteas opposed to the trick for linux (restarting X) x)
00:32:30case__pixelma, ok, but how can i fix this non-issue? :)
00:32:40SaviorI'll try rebooting it...
00:32:44 Part Savior
00:32:50Lloreancase__: Compile a new build using the old keymaps-e200.c file...
00:33:00LloreanThe button mapping changed, and the new mapping is described in the manual

00:52:44intruzim thinking about buying one and want to make sure it is supported first
00:52:49krazykitthe sure-fire way is that the device says "v2" on the back. the box also might say "Audible Support"

01:28:57Saviorno, now the screen is just black
01:29:05bobrulesmake sure in your original firmware you are in msc mode
01:30:00SaviorI can't change it from MTP because I can't access the original firmware. :/

02:57:36safetydancrzyboyster: which buffer?
02:57:53maraz_i would guess the audio buffer
02:57:56schlasimi've a problem running rockbox on my 3g 40gb ipod
02:58:02crzyboysterthe playback buffer i think (like for audio and pictureflow)
02:58:29schlasimanyone here who can help me?
02:58:48safetydanschlasim: you'll need to be more specific with what your problem is
02:59:03safetydancrzyboyster: pictureflow uses the plugin buffer which you can change in the source
02:59:34schlasimi will: my problem: i used rbutilqt.exe"
02:59:45schlasimto get rockbox on my ipod
02:59:48crzyboystersafetydan: how would one go about doing this?
03:00:03crzyboysterand how much is there available to expand?
03:00:06Soapschlasim: what model iPod do you have?
03:00:21crzyboysteralso, what is the buffer using? i dont't want my ipod overheating, etc
03:00:22Soapnevermind - I see now - I should have looked up
03:00:31safetydancrzyboyster: find the value, change it and then recompile. It's probably not something you want to change lightly though.
03:00:39schlasimnow, when i reboot it it tells me something like "data abort at..."
03:00:39krazykitcrzyboyster, your ipod won't overheat from buffer being used.
03:00:59schlasim3g 40gb (see above)
03:01:39crzyboysterwhat exactly is the buffer? can someone explain to me, is it just the flash being used? also does more battery get used?
03:01:56 Quit Rob2222 (Read error: 113 (No route to host))
03:02:22maraz_crzyboyster: the buffers aren't on the non-volatile flash chip but in the volatile memory of the device
03:02:29maraz_ie. RAM
03:02:29krazykitcrzyboyster, it's roughly analagous to your computer's RAM.
03:02:34safetydancrzyboyster: the buffer is RAM and is where all the program code goes when it's running. It's also used to buffer things loaded from the harddrive (though this isn't as important on flash targets).
03:03:35crzyboysterso how big can this buffer possibly be
03:03:42crzyboysterpushed to its limits
03:03:58schlasimcould it be, that only older versions work with my 3g?

03:05:26Vaprebut it just sits there
03:05:29Vapreis it an i2c issue

03:08:01schlasimthe only thing that worked was to use rbutilqt v 1.0.1 under linux in combination with ipodpatcher (which i hade to chmod 7xx to get it working)...
03:08:20schlasimso any suggestions to get the new software on to my ipod?
03:08:21VapreI can get the daughterboard to mount into recovery mode if I put it on another semi-working (bad LCD) board
03:08:27krazykitVapre, well, you can't really mess it up anymore than it already is, and manu. mode isn't working...
03:09:00Vaprewhat, if anything is stored on the mainboard?
03:09:15Vaprethe BL? The i2c?
03:09:38schlasimSoap, krazykit, Vapre: any suggestions?
03:10:09krazykitschlasim, unzip the latest build into your ipod. if that fails, try an earlier version and try to determine when it breaks?
03:10:21safetydanschlasim: try the manual install process that's documented in the manual. Ensure that you're using the latest version of the ipodpatcher and a current build of rockbox.
03:10:43schlasimwhere do i get an earlier version?
03:10:48Vaprewhat's wrong w/his ipod
03:11:02krazykitVapre, read the log to find out.

03:15:33safetydanVapre: I'm assuming you've read the unbrick wiki page?
03:15:35krazykitVapre, if manufacturing mode isn't rebooting to recovery mode and you're doing the exact same process that you have in the past with other players, it might be worth trying to recover the i2c: you really don't have anything to lose at this point if recovering the bootloader isn't working.
03:16:29Vapreso in e200, that's the i2cprogram switch, right?
03:16:36krazykitwhatever the wiki says
03:18:50Vapreso the NAND flash, is that on the daughterboard

03:21:59krazykitVapre, as I understand it, yes.
03:22:04schlasim"data abort" again, how do i change to an older version now? just extract it to my ipod?
03:22:13krazykitschlasim, that's correct
03:23:10safetydanschlasim: yes. Though, when was the last time you updated your bootloader with ipodpatcher? The current version is 2.0
03:23:51VapreWell then maybe it's a hardware issue? If I can get the daughterboard to work on another sansa mainboard, it's gotta be hardware, or am I wrong
03:23:53schlasimhow can i see my version?
03:24:10schlasimi just used ipodpatcher anyway
03:24:25schlasimi downloaded it 10min ago
03:25:41safetydanschlasim: and you reinstalled the bootloader?
03:26:04schlasimi did
03:26:41schlasimi completely set my ipod up (restore in itunes) and after that, i installed the bootloader
03:27:12safetydanright, now which build are you downloading? The exact URL would be good.
03:28:18schlasimok guys: revision 15942 works
03:28:48schlasimi don't know why, but it does...

03:29:52safetydanSoap: good point. I was getting confused with a different user error.

03:32:51schlasimthis means, that rockbox recognizes files, if i just put a couple of mp3's in an arbitrary folder on my ipod?

09:49:06Shaideh, you really wouldn't want it to.

10:23:55markunmaybe if you connect your player with OTG you don't want to drain the battery of the other device
10:24:06peturif you don't want short charge cycles every time you connect it to pc?
10:24:10markunpixelma: yes, there is not #ifdef around it I guess

10:24:53markunmaybe the M5 has no USB charging at all
10:25:13markunthe Gigabeat has, but we can't turn it off (at least we don't know how to do it)
10:27:00pixelmaso, the question changes: is it necessary to explain a non-working feature? And on which targets is it working?
10:27:14pondlifeWorks on H300
10:27:52markunmaybe we should add a HAVE_ENABLE_USB_CHARGING
10:27:52pondlifeAnd ideally it should be not listed until it works (in settings or manual)
10:30:25ZagorI question the value of the option
10:31:04pondlifeLinusN wanted it, IIRC
10:31:14pixelmaI could find it in the following sims: FM-Recorder/RecorderV2, H300, Gigabeat, some Ipods - so I guess the only ones where it is working are the H300 and the Archos ones?
10:31:54pixelmaZagor: that's what I thought. Maybe I shouldn't bother after all.
10:32:03pondlifePersonally I'd always want to charge if possible, but it's currently only taking 100mA on H300, rather than the full 500mA

10:46:03markunyoavk: in firmware/target in the folder for your target look at button-target.h
10:46:14linuxstbpetur: Regarding your fg_pattern/bg_pattern question, backdrops would (at least for the first implementation) remain global - i.e. the backdrop is related to the screen, not to any particular viewport, So if the screen has a backdrop set, then that's what will be used as the background for all viewports on that screen.
10:47:25peturI was thinking about the fg/bg setting of each viewport. If you can only specify a color, the backdrop would be obscured

13:01:26rasherNico_P: a few wishes: a) static location for albumart (reduces clutter) b) the fade effect in the tracklist in pictureflow isn't very noticeable - especially not with a large font - maybe the amount of "fading" should depend on the number of items on screen or something (or font height)
13:02:32Nico_Prasher: I don't understand a)
13:03:22GodEater_Nico_P: i.e. don't keep the .bmp file in the same directory as the music
13:03:34GodEater_put them all in .rockbox/albumart or something
13:03:40rasherNico_P: looking for album art in a static location such as /.rockbox/covers/ or something

13:05:09rasherNico_P: do you mangle filenames to remove illegal characters when looking for albumtitle.bmp, by the way?
13:07:16rasherI wonder why rocklife ended up under Games. It might be called Game of Life, but it's hardly a game in any real sense.
13:07:55pixelmahow would that work with multiple albums of the same name?
13:08:15GodEater_extend the naming convention to artist name too ?
13:08:15rasherNot at all.
13:08:36rasherThat might be sensible, at least when looking in a single location
13:08:58Soaprasher: on "Game of Life" - if you can load/save states it is a game.
13:09:19rasherSoap: You can't (not at this moment, anyway).
13:09:25pixelmaGodEater: that might work if you have x "Best Of"s but I know at least three albums with the name "Home" and I wouldn't want to add the artist name there
13:09:30Soapor more correctly, if you can load custom start points.
13:09:53Soapyea, so it is an unfinished game.
13:09:54rasherpixelma: I think he means to look for "<artistname>-<albumname>.bmp"
13:10:09Nico_Prasher: yeah there is a check
13:10:11pixelmaok, I see
13:10:24GodEater_pixelma: yes sorry
13:10:29GodEater_I should be more expansive :)
13:10:50rasherNico_P: so would I replace illegal characters with something?
13:11:23Nico_Prasher: most illigal chars are replaced by underscores
13:11:32Nico_Pdouble quotes are replaced by single quotes
13:12:26Nico_Prasher: and about static location, it sounds good... has there been a discussion I missed?
13:13:03rasherNico_P: not that I know of
13:13:47rasherExcept I'm pretty sure I brought it up at one time, I think pre-aa-commit. Don't remember what came of it
13:17:30rasherIt was simply a suggestion for something I'd personally like, and think seems like a generally good idea.
13:19:23Nico_PI like it too and it's quite a trivial change... I don't really have time for it right now though
13:20:51rasherI'm in no hurry. Including the artist name is probably a good idea.
13:20:56peturGodEater: regarding iriver batteries: ipod replacemen batts are a bad suggestions as you have to switch wires and I've had bad experience with them. CameronSino is a good brand that sells iriver replacement batts on ebay for a good price

15:00:55LinusNspeaking of languages, perhaps we should consider tossing out some of the least maintained translations? Afrikaans, for example, has 628 missing strings.
15:02:01LinusNfor example, ditch all languages with more than 100 missing strings
15:02:37LinusNit's silly to claim that rockbox has so many translations when most of them are in such a sorry state
15:04:53amiconnThe question is where to draw the line
15:05:22amiconnAlso, such a partial translation makes it easier for someone to pick it up again (as opposed to starting from scratch)
15:05:31LinusNof course
15:05:45LinusNmy suggestion is to omit them from the zip files
15:05:59peturgets my vote too

15:57:13LloreanLinusN: The majority of our players just have a symbol on the buttons anyawy.
15:57:26LinusNmaybe so
15:57:54LinusNstill, i can't remember ever seeing a player in sweden with the name "SPELA" on the play button
15:57:54markunpixelma: it works very well. I used it for an english text with some german poems in it :)
15:58:04LloreanThat being said, any case there's a written word, I'd rather the visible string be that literal word, and the spoken string be a translation
15:58:11ZagorI have never heard a swede call it "spela-knappen".
15:58:18LinusNin sweden, we often speak about "play-knappen", and not "spela-knappen"

15:58:57petursame for Dutch, really ("play-knop")

15:59:01ZagorI don't think the speech should say "spela" either. nobody will understand.
15:59:25LloreanWell, by translation I mean "culturally appropriate phrase" :)
16:00:18LloreanBut if there's a word printed on the player, and we need to describe it in text, we should always use the literal word I think.
16:00:40LloreanIf they can't translate it in our text, the visible word on the player won't mean anything to them anyway to match with the translation

19:40:27ZincAlloyright, I'm using black, white, 85/85/85 and 170/170/170
19:40:44LloreanSo, what's the "don't display correctly" issue?
19:41:23ZincAlloyI posted a screenshot on the forum to illustrate the issue

19:42:32xxhotman1u could do that

19:42:44LloreanZincAlloy: Where did you get 85 and 170 from?
19:42:54yoavkyes, but how do i do that throu a plugin?
19:43:07ZincAlloyit was mentioned earlier in that thread
19:43:23LloreanSo you haven't tried other values?
19:43:51xxhotman1oh ya i saw that one already
19:43:53LloreanWhile 85 and 170 are appropriately 1/3 and 2/3 of 255, I'm not sure that specifically means they're the numbers that equate to "pure" colors on grayscale
19:43:54ZincAlloyand they're used on the h100 port
19:44:01xxhotman1it would connect for a second then drop
19:44:20pixelmaLlorean: those should work correctly
19:44:27LloreanZincAlloy: Have you tried using them as normal bitmaps, and not a backdrop?
19:44:37Lloreanpixelma: I didn't even know grayscale targets dithered
19:44:41ZincAlloyyes, the normal bitmaps are alright
19:45:25LloreanZincAlloy: Why not just cut it up and use it as normal bitmaps then, as opposed to a full bitmap backdrop, since that's unnecessary anyway?
19:45:46ZincAlloytrue... I'm gonna give it a try
19:45:56pixelmawhere is the forum post?
19:46:05Lloreanpixelma: Last one in the default theme contest thread
19:46:34ZincAlloybut it's still weired. the h100 version is using the same shades on a backdrop without any problems
19:48:17pixelmaLlorean: if it's not a backdrop it might be problematic with the progressbar background - that "could" be drawn above the progressbar if you're unlucky
19:48:48Lloreanpixelma: Ah, true.

19:50:00yoavkSo any idea's of how to move a file yet? (Sorry i'm nudging - I kinda need it)

19:51:03xxhotman1<toffe82>: you think that will work with new HD(formatted) as my current one is broken
19:51:05LloreanSaying "how do I move a file" without a reference is going to make people think you're talking about within Rockbox since this is #Rockbox.
19:51:14yoavkLlorean: No I'm not - file handling is different in C

20:23:34pondlifekugel: OK
20:23:47pondlifeBetter than Flyspray, but I need to go shortly
20:23:48saratogapixelma: did you send me a wma file to look at during the last couple months?
20:23:49LloreanWell in both 8-bit and 4-bit modes, you have a different number of shades of gray, meaning 85 and 170 might not have an exact parallel, so photoshop tries dithering it for you?
20:23:51LearZincAlloy: Backgrounds are dithered, other bitmaps are not. You need to get the colors exactly right to avoid the dither.
20:24:07ZincAlloyah, I see
20:24:20LloreanOr rather ,photoshop tries picking the "nearest" match instead of exact colors any more
20:24:20pondlifekugel: I just don't see how FWD/BACK is confusing, regarding a dial.
20:24:46Lloreanpondlife: If "fwd" up or down in a list?
20:24:50 Quit Xerion (" ")
20:24:55pondlifeIt's forward
20:24:57LloreanBut the wheel navigates lists.
20:25:02pixelmayes, if I export the file back into Photopaint, the colour picker tells me it's a bit off...
20:25:10kugelIf you look at the bottom of the wheel, FWD is different than if you look at the top
20:25:10LloreanClockwise and Counterclockwise give more explicit names as to what the wheel is doing.
20:25:17pondlifeDepends on the screen orientation, compared to the wheel
20:25:29Lloreanpondlife: But clock and counter are absolute independent of orientation.
20:25:31pondlifeTo me, FWD is always clockwise
20:25:38LloreanThen why not call it clockwise?
20:25:56kugelFor me, FWD doesn't mean anything but moving from left to right on any position
20:25:56pondlifeI don't mind, I just particularly dislike counter
20:26:05krazykitanti, then?
20:26:07pondlifekugel: That would be RIGHT
20:26:26kugelon *any* position
20:26:32kugelmeaning top as well as bottom
20:26:46pondlifeSorry, I don't understand.
20:26:53pixelmasaratoga: yes, some time ago
20:27:02pondlifeYou mean moving a finger from the top of the wheel round clockwise to the bottom?
20:27:04ZincAlloyso, should I save it as 24 bit rgb and let rockbox do the rest?
20:27:15Lloreanpondlife: I just think that having "FWD/BACK" makes setting list controls in plugins unclear, since you don't know whether "FWD" should be going up or down in a list. Or incrementing or decrementing values.
20:27:20LearZincAlloy: But 85 and 170 should be right... I think...
20:27:33Lloreanpondlife: If you're not fond of "Counter", we should come up with a better name.
20:27:55pixelmaLear: yes, but Photoshop seems a bit stupid...
20:27:58saratogapixelma: what was teh file name?
20:28:02LloreanLear: But if 85 doesn't align with an exact color in 4-bit or 8-bit export, it might pick a "best fit" color that doesn't align with the "pure" color for Rockbox
20:28:05saratogai'm not certain that i looked at it yet
20:28:39LearLlorean: One could hope it is using a palette optimized for the image in question...
20:28:41ZincAlloyLear: yes, that makes sense. now i need to find a way to save it correctly
20:29:04pondlifeWhich target has a while that when turned clockwise would scroll upwards? Sansa?
20:29:13LloreanLear: Hope is a good thing to have. :)
20:29:25pondlifeSounds like a use for invert screen to me....
20:29:40Lloreanpondlife: Clockwise increases volume, but moves downward in a list, and move "Right" in other locations.
20:30:22pondlifeAll of which could be covered by Clockwise or Forward
20:30:30LloreanI think Clockwise is more explicit by far though
20:31:08LloreanSince one could (not me) argue that "Forward" can be interpreted as "increase" which is "up", etc.
20:31:10pondlifeDo people elsewhere not use "anti-clockwise"? Is that a UK thing?
20:31:14kugelI can understand that COUNTER isn't desciptive alone
20:31:24Lloreanpondlife: I've heard anti-clockwise everywhere but here in the US, I think
20:31:32kugelI personnally never heard anti-clockwise before
20:31:47pondlifekugel: Where are you based?
20:32:04digitalloI've never heard it either, I'm in the US.
20:32:04pondlife(just out of interest, language interests me.)
20:32:09kugelGermany, my teachers told me counter-clockwise
20:32:28kugelSo what about: CLOCK and ANTICLOCK
20:32:49kugelor COUNTERCLOCK ?
20:32:57pondlife Widdershins is probably universal....
20:33:08kugelHowever counterclock is a bit too long in my taste
20:33:25pondlifeI just think of a timer, or something... a counter and a clock
20:34:12LloreanWe could use "INC" and "DEC" to represent the increasing or decreasing of the value of "wheel position"
20:34:31ZincAlloymy dictionary widget tells me anticlockwise is british, indeed
20:35:06kugelLlorean: I think INC and DEC isn't good
20:35:23pondlifeAgreed, that would confuse in the volume case...
20:35:27kugelINC doesn't tell you if you move up or down in a list
20:35:28digitalloINC and DEC could also mean increment and decrement.....
20:35:40Lloreandigitallo: Same thing as "Increase and Decrease"
20:35:46pondlifeIt does to 6502 programmers...
20:36:32LloreanMy point is that there are "very short" yet still descriptive options. But I think CLOCKWISE and COUNTERCLOCK aren't too hard to type from time to time
20:36:32kugelSo what do you think about CLOCK and ANTICLOCK?
20:36:40Lloreanor even ANTICLOCK
20:36:59pixelmaor just ANTI?
20:37:09LloreanI'll even go for that. :)
20:37:37pondlifeI'm happy with COUNTERCLOCKWISE, but not with COUNTERCLOCK ;)
20:38:00ZincAlloypixelma: going to rgb 24 bit made it much better. but now I'm having black dots on the top edge of the greyed out progress bar o_O
20:38:06LloreanCLOCK and NOT ? :-P
20:38:27pixelmathat's the question? ;)
20:38:58*pondlife learns from that it's not just a Discworld thing...
20:39:21pixelmaZincAlloy: use another graphics porgram :P
20:39:51RedbrevaZincAlloy : What about 'Indexed Color' mode with Black, White 85 & 170 as the only four colours - when saved as a 4 bit bitmap evrything is converted to the nearest of those four shades
20:40:58kugelI'd go with CLOCK and ANTICLOCK, if anticlockwise is more common than counter-clockwise
20:42:00pondlifeWhatever, it's just the word COUNTER used in programs I was wary of.

20:46:06kugelIf I look at the bottom of the wheel, forward is anticlockwise
20:46:23Lloreanlinuxstb: I think they're good, but not the best possible. "FWD" and "BACK" aren't immediately obvious whether they mean "Up" or "Down" in lists, because you don't know if "SCROLL_FWD" means "The direction you scroll the wheel to move down in the list" or "The direction you scroll the wheel to move up in a list" (since some people may think of up as forward)
20:46:37LloreanI admit it's a weak argument for confusion, but I'd rather not have any at all if possible
20:46:47Slasherinow testing quite complex tagcache statistical data resurrection when moving files or altering metadata :) song ratings etc. should stay now intact
20:46:59kugelI think people have different fixed points
20:47:16linuxstbI just think that they've not caused any problems up to now (afaik), and "clockwise" and "anti/counter-clockwise" is just too long to type...
20:47:17LloreanSlasheri: As long as the artis, album, and title match, the information gets moved?
20:47:57SlasheriLlorean: almost, in fact bitrate and length are always required to match, then either filename hash must fully match or two of these hashes: artist, album or title
20:48:30LloreanSlasheri: Honestly, I'd rather if bitrate *weren't* checked.
20:48:43SlasheriLlorean: hmm, why?
20:48:51LloreanFor example, if I replace a low quality MP3 of something with a fixed MP3 or vorbis encode, I'd rather preserve playcount, etc.
20:49:02LloreanFor example, a radio recording with an actual CD rip of it
20:49:22Slasheriah, that might be true. But the song length (stored in milli-seconds) must remaing intact too
20:49:36LloreanAh, which wouldn't work from radio

21:04:09Saviorfor some reason my Sansa hates me and won't let me do anything
21:04:31joshman729thanks kugel
21:05:34kugelSo, any decision about my renaming patch?
21:05:38joshman729Well I mainly just listen to music.....can you copy music back from the player to the computer?
21:06:43krazykitjoshman729, what player do you have?
21:06:51joshman729Ipod classic 80gb
21:07:02krazykitthen you can't use rockbox, as rockbox is not supported on the Classic
21:07:15joshman729i wanted an mp3 player but nothing compared in price and size to the ipod
21:07:15joshman729i thought i could use the video software?
21:07:37joshman729for the 80gb video?

22:22:38kugelWhat's about the rename patch now? Will it be committed (with CLOCK and ANTICLOCK or something) or not?
22:23:03Lloreankugel: Seriously, have patience.
22:23:10LloreanIf it's on the tracker, then it's on the tracker.
22:23:48kugelOk, so it needs further discussion? No problem
22:24:01LloreanThat's not at all what I said.
22:24:43kugelI just don't feel the discussion today ended
22:26:03LloreanThere's hundreds of patches and tasks in the tracker, it takes time to go from "patch" to "commit" even if there's nothing wrong with it, because someone with commit access still needs to decide they're gonna take responsibility for watching it afterward for any negative side effects, etc.
22:26:42jottthe patch touches alot of files, so it might get "problematic" in a short period of time .. i guess hence the "hurry" :)
22:26:57LloreanSo even if a patch is relatively simple, it may not get accepted because no matter how sure you are, it may have side effects, so someone must be read to deal with them before committing. Whenever someone's getting ready to, they'll comment on the names if they decide you need to change them.
22:27:28LloreanBut pestering people to commit it is just going to develop ill will. You really shouldn't ask constantly about it

23:11:33DefineBytea manual isn't a technical document?
23:11:34LloreanIt's semi-technical, but I think, at least in some sentences, keeping a more casual tone might make it less imposing.
23:11:39DefineBytewhat is it then?

23:25:01LloreanI really don't know. I *think* that it would be more comfortable for people if the manual tried to have a casual tone where possible.

23:28:03LloreanI think "conversational" is a better tone than "technical" or "professional" for our manual. But, again, personal opinion.
23:28:27DefineByteDo people find professionally produced manuals generally off-putting? I don't have an answer to that.
23:28:37ZincAlloyright, help is not a matter of tone. A helpful manual would "think" like its potential user. that's not easy to write
23:29:01LloreanZincAlloy: But the comfort of the reader is important
23:29:20LloreanYou can write the same instructions, but by way of word choice, make it seem much more or much less imposing.
23:29:44 Join linuxstb [0] (n=chatzill@rockbox/developer/linuxstb)
23:29:54LloreanA lack of contractions makes a document feel technical. Technical makes it feel "over your head" for nervous users, even if the content isn't *that* technical, I think.
23:30:06ZincAlloysure, but I think comfort should be achieved by using short and easy to understand sentences
23:30:11LloreanBecause many of our users feel they're non-technical people who just heard about something cool
23:30:33DefineByteI think people will be put off more by things like "bootloader"
23:30:38LloreanZincAlloy: That doesn't mean that contractions wouldn't help generate a non-technical, or comfortable, tone.
23:31:06LloreanI'm not saying other things wouldn't help it more. I just think that contractions help make things a little more comfortable, is all.
23:31:18linuxstbZincAlloy: Regarding your wps question - I'm guessing you're using filenames such as "../somewhere/something.bmp" ?
23:31:29SoapIMHO the best thing you can do for the people put off by "bootloader" is write a "Rockbox for Dummies" abridged manual.
23:31:29DefineByteThe whole start of the installation section is taken up by the inner workings of the boot sequence which I think is a mistake.
23:31:49LloreanDefineByte: That is bad, yes.
23:31:54DefineByteI think the standard manual should be that
23:31:55ZincAlloytrue, but I think contractions are for spoken language rather than for written
23:32:11ZincAlloylinuxstb: yes, that's right
23:32:14linuxstbIMO we should explain to users what they are doing to their DAP...
23:32:23LloreanWe should explain to users what they're doing.
23:32:49DefineByteDo you get this in the Ubuntu manual?
23:32:53LloreanBut we could summarize it briefly, and say "For more information, see blah, after the installation instructions"
23:33:14Soapthere is enough confusion as is about what role Rockbox is playing on their hardware, and what role (in the case of PP owners) the original firmware is playing. I think the distinctions made in the manual are important.

23:34:34linuxstbZincAlloy: Then I would say the problem is that your operating system's "open" function can deal with relative paths, but Rockbox's version (which is used on target) doesn't. Try using absolute paths - i.e. /.rockbox/wps/somewhere/something.bmp
23:35:00ZincAlloytried those as well. won't work either
23:35:22BagderI think the wps image loader is made to load images for the specific wps
23:35:38linuxstbThat's true - it will prepend the wps directory name...
23:35:55pixelmalinuxstb: if I understood correctly he wants to use the same image folder with 2 different wps files
