#rockbox log for 2008-01-07

00:00:00 Quit lyon8_ (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:01:24Nico_Plike when?
00:02:07amiconnLike, when 'mount' and the rest of the OS disagree about the codepage
00:02:20amiconnSee yesterday's log for an example
00:02:32 Quit soap (Remote closed the connection)
00:02:34preglowyeah, can suck there, i had to force utf sometimes
00:02:40preglowutf-8, at that
00:03:02preglowbut that only happens when messing with ntfs and other non-ext file systems
00:03:21amiconnYes, e.g. vfat
00:03:46Nico_Pi.e. windows filesystems
00:03:57Nico_Por are others affected too?
00:04:16preglowi don't know which facilities file systems have of indicating char set
00:04:38amiconnWell, it's not really the filesystem which causes this problem
00:04:42BagderI'm quite sure there are similar problems on all sorts of filesystems
00:04:45 Join Cptnodegard [0] (n=none@unaffiliated/cptnodegard)
00:04:51amiconnvfat and ntfs are both *always* ucs-2 internally
00:05:15Cptnodegardthe sony DAPs run on linux and the source codes are available. is that useful info for anyone in rockbox?
00:05:32amiconnBut if the linux filesystem driver for either fs thinks the os uses a different codepage than it acually does -> boom
00:05:37preglowCptnodegard: it's useful info for anyone who wants to port rockbox to sony daps
00:05:41BagderCptnodegard: is it really the full sources?
00:05:58BagderCptnodegard: the companies tend to use binary drivers to avoid releasing anything fun...
00:06:16Cptnodegardi think so, because of GNU
00:06:19preglowamiconn: when would a file system driver think the os uses a different char set than it does?
00:06:27BagderCptnodegard: then read up on the subject and rethink
00:06:35Cptnodegard - click next, then "network audio system"
00:07:50Cptnodegardi have no idea about such, but didnt hurt to ask ^^
00:07:50 Join soap [50] (n=soap@rockbox/staff/soap)
00:07:50amiconnE.g. when mounting the fs before init sets the codepage. Had that on a linux box with ntfs-3g mounted via fstab...
00:07:50BagderCptnodegard: well, nobody is working with Rockbox for a sony player afaik so this isn't really an urgent matter
00:07:50amiconnHad to force utf-8 in fstab to make it work properly
00:07:55 Quit ender` (" If you're going to do something tonight that you'll be sorry for tomorrow morning, sleep late.")
00:08:14preglowamiconn: wtf? i wouldn't expect fuse to work at all before init is run
00:08:17Cptnodegardoh well, maybe someone will be encouraged if the source is there :p

00:08:31preglowor, there really isn't a reason it shouldn't...
00:08:36Cptnodegardthey are nice players, so would be interesting
00:08:40darkslategreyi have a problem w/ rockdoom
00:08:47BigBambidarkslategrey: just ask
00:09:02BagderCptnodegard: based on a quick glance on the listings they provide, they contain nothing interesting
00:09:03darkslategreyi cant use addon wads for some reason
00:09:16Cptnodegardoh :/ ah well, worth a shot
00:09:33darkslategreywhen i try it displays the normal text and then stops, the bottom line is "you cannot -file with the sh"
00:09:40darkslategreyand that's where it stops
00:09:51darkslategreythen it displays more text and returns to the plugin menu
00:10:37Bagderbusybox, gcc, uboot, linux kernel, glibc etc all just plain tarballs
00:10:52Bagderno drivers, no extra
00:11:30BagderI would suspect they violate GPL for busybox in just about all their players
00:11:45darkslategreydoes anyone know what the problem might be?
00:12:07darkslategreyi tried using freedoom but it doesn't even try to load addons it just goes straight to the defaults
00:12:29BigBambidarkslategrey: Personally no, but if someone does they will answer
00:13:45stripwaxgood night all

00:23:27PaulJamI'm experimenting a bit with viewports and i noticed something: when i put %Cl and %C tags below a line that specifies a viewpot the albumart doesn't show up. is this expected?
00:25:50 Join jhulst [0] (n=jhulst@unaffiliated/jhulst)
00:26:00pixelmaIIRC linuxstb reported something similar, that the first line after the viewport tag didn't show up... (just read about it here)
00:30:48linuxstbThat should have been fixed a while ago... But that was with normal lines, rather than special lines like %C
00:32:20PaulJamwhen i use %xl and %xd instead of %Cl and %C everythng works as expected. i thought albumart should basically behave the same way as normal images.
00:34:33PaulJamby the way, it's nice that you can even use peakmeters within a viewport.

01:16:37linuxstbWhy upload it?
01:16:37draeathamiconn, most likely completely unrelated to doom
01:16:57saratogalinuxstb: because its got drivers for the D2, and I don't want those getting lost
01:17:16saratogai can just close it once i find out why he couldn't do it himself

04:00:35soapPPPP - look in unsupported builds, but Rockbox is never going to have an official way to boot anything but Rockbox first.
04:01:11psycho_maniacIt seems as the theme is never complete. They want to keep adding stuf like viewports (when thats in) I think the theme is good the way it is now, but i could be wrong.
04:01:17PPPPsoap: where would i look for that?
04:01:49soapI think they are doing an excellent job of design-by-committee.
04:02:21psycho_maniacI really would rather see Cabbie the default, but I guess thats not a very popular theme.
04:02:23soapThey started the job without a fully fleshed-out plan - and I think now they are finally comming to grips with all the elements people expect to see.
04:02:46soapI love cabbie - you can see my personal vision of it is quite true to the original, IMHO.
04:03:52psycho_maniacYeah. I use that on my ipod, e200, and gigabeat. I like how plain it is. I dont know what it is about that theme but i Love it.
04:05:26PPPPahh okay i found it:
04:05:34saratogasoap: I don't think its out of hand, but I'd really like to commit something soon
04:05:43saratogawe can always update it once its commited

05:11:06|NSA|last as in 2007 or 2006?
05:11:26saratogahowever, he never got far enough to work on MSD

05:14:24saratogajust use the search feature on the front page, type in zagor and USB
05:14:40scorchethat will be a lot of results...
05:15:14saratogasure, but you can quickly narrow them down since the date is in the title of each result
05:15:48psycho_maniacthen use the "-" feature. i love that feature in any search engine
05:16:36safetydan|NSA|: the reason there's nothing on the tracker is that there's no USB stack patch on the tracker anymore. The work that had been done has been comitted.

08:14:49Jay_GIt's really quiet right now, so I'll venture a question regarding unofficial tags. Is it possible to use sublines with %e? I tried everything I could think of but could not get it to work. Also, after much searching I've been unable to find an explanation of how to use the %s%m tags on the same line as %e - although it is recommended. Any help or links to the appropriate web page(s) would be appreciated.
08:16:12JdGordon1) how can you say its quiet when youve only been in the chan for 10min?
08:16:22JdGordon2) unoficial builds dont get discussed

08:18:01Jay_GJDGordon - quiet because there's been no discussion for ten minutes. That is, except for you telling me we can't discuss the issue. Thanks.
08:18:23JdGordonlinuxstb: hey, are scrolling lines linked to the viewport at all? can I keep adding a scrolling line (not replacing the old one) if I move the viewport?
08:19:09linuxstbWhy would you move an active viewport? But yes, a scroll entry contains both a viewport pointer and a y position.
08:19:34JdGordonto make the list lines use the icon height if its larger than the font height for the rows
08:20:06linuxstbHow would you do that? One viewport per line?
08:20:30JdGordonyeah, but I was thinking reusing the viewport to safe ram
08:20:48JdGordonno big deal if it cant be done, was just a thought
08:21:09Jay_GThanks linuxstb.
08:21:33linuxstbWouldn't a separate "line height" setting for the viewport be better? I liked Nico_P's patch for that, but it never got committed.
08:22:03JdGordonisnt the scrolling lines set at the text height though?
08:22:18JdGordon.. I mean, scrolling isnt pixel set, its line set?
08:22:31linuxstbThat's what I mean - change them to be via a separate "line height" rather than using the font height.

10:12:01GodEateryeah me too
10:12:15pondlifeBuffering needs to sleep a little more

10:12:17woodensoulwhen was this bug introduced?
10:12:53GodEaterI think that was discussed on Friday
10:12:57GodEaterhave a hunt through the logs
10:13:04woodensoulis there a bug report?
10:13:07GodEaterI don't recall the exact revision
10:13:13GodEateryeah, there's one of those too :)
10:13:19pondlifeProbably since MoB.
10:13:21GodEateralthough I think it's iPod specific
10:13:41GodEaterpondlife: for me it was MoB, it was a change that amiconn did to the ATA drivers on the iPod which made it start
10:13:51GodEater*wasn't* MoB rather
10:13:53woodensoulI have a Gigabeat, and it does it too
10:14:03GodEaterI've not had it happen to me on the gigabeat at all
10:14:16pondlifeGodEater: On H300 I think it was MoB (or very shortly after).
10:14:21Nico_PI have to go to class, Ill check the logs when I come back
10:14:26GodEaterok - later
10:14:37woodensoulwell i've been playing 6 or 7 albums for the last several hours and it hasn't happened
10:14:55pondlifeIt's only occasional.
10:15:14woodensoulwith a build from Jan 2nd
10:16:11GodEaterso when did it last do it then ?
10:17:00pondlifeSeems buffering is too aggressive (hence starving audio playback) in some cases, yet 64MB iPod owners are reporting that buffering takes ages to complete..
10:17:23GodEaterdefine "ages" ?
10:18:33pondlifeThe reports are vague - from "disk keeps spinning" to "20 mins"
10:18:40pondlifeI don't have an iPod though
10:18:43GodEaterwell I've certainly not seen that
10:18:56woodensoulWell I have 3 Gigabeats so I'm not sure what build is on the one that did it last.
10:18:58GodEaterbuffering takes at most 20 seconds in my case
10:19:07pondlifeWith 64MB?
10:19:09GodEaterwoodensoul: well you need to find out
10:19:12GodEaterpondlife: yes
10:19:20pondlifeOK, sounds about right
10:19:29 Join TroyMcClure12 [0] (
10:19:44TroyMcClure12any quick guides on doing a custom build?
10:19:49pondlifeSo it would be fine if buffering was a little less aggressive...maybe add a second onto HD powered time, but no audio skipping..
10:20:25GodEaterSlasheri has a theory it's something to do with chunksize (whatever that is)
10:20:44GodEaterwhich I think is the minimum amount of data which is required before a codec can beginning playing it
10:20:51GodEaterapparently there is no minimum value anymore
10:20:57GodEaterwhile once upon a time there used to be
10:21:17GodEateramiconn thought it was to do with the low watermark in the buffering

11:25:57pondlifeThe SVN bootloader has several improvements over the last wikied one
11:26:29pondlifeWe've discussed it before - mainly USB bootloader mode now works on some devices.
11:26:41pondlifei.e. some where it did not before
11:27:07pondlifeAlso power on from the remote is fixed
11:28:05pondlifeLinusN wanted to do some more tests (and charging stuff, perhaps).

12:01:25amiconnBootloader USB works for me with the official bootloader, and booting rockbox works flawlessly
12:02:02amiconnThe latest one for testing introduced the nasty hdd click (emergency park) during *every* normal boot...
12:02:31pondlifeI've not had that, but the official bootloader won't do USB connection, whereas the SVN one works fine
12:02:53pondlifeLinusN: Have you had the HD click?
12:03:28LinusNas in the hard drive clicking when inserting the usb cable?

12:04:06pondlifeAlso, for the record, the SVN bootloader (10th December) works fine here with an 80GB disk. petur reported intermittent boot issues....

12:04:36peturpondlife: was anything changed for that?
12:04:53pondlifeNope, I just switched HD and it all worked
12:05:34peturhmmm... I think I tried my 80GB disk on my other h300 but can't remember the outcome :(
12:06:01pondlifeamiconn: I get a slight click on booting, but nothing notable, same as with the OF. This is just a boot with no USB cable involved.
12:07:05*pondlife marvels at how long the OF takes to boot with 60GB of data...

12:32:21LinusNwoodensoul: it's in fact extremely easy to accomplish, but integrating it with the user interface is not as simple
12:32:50LinusNwoodensoul: and do you really want it to switch to recording when you are currently using the player for playback?
12:32:58LinusNwoodensoul: etc etc
12:33:05woodensoulLinusN: What do you mean by that? The settings for it?
12:33:16woodensoulThat could be an option.
12:33:28LinusNeverything can be an option
12:33:29woodensoulYes/No Record even when in playback.

12:33:47LinusN"when player is off"
12:34:00pondlife"When recording something else"?
12:34:19woodensoulWell the only valid one that I could really see being used is haveing the player turn on to record, but I didn't think that was possible.
12:34:41LinusNadd to that all the settings that go with the recording, such as source, sample rate, encoder etc
12:34:48woodensoulThen why not just make it work when playback is stopped and not in a plugin?
12:35:08LloreanWhy not set it to record when you enter the recording screen, then shut off the player and use a wake-up alarm?
12:35:09woodensoulJust make it record with all the recording settings left alone
12:35:11pondlifeIf we're going to work on timed events, I'd like to see it built as a general alarm/scheduler controlled from the calendar plugin...

13:10:09*GodEater never uses the database

13:10:38*GodEater refers to the "never" in the above statement
13:10:45woodensoulwell there's another one then... ability to browse by files or database
13:10:45pondlifeI don't use genre, but random album is very nice
13:10:53*Bagder never even started the database

13:16:15DerPapsteh... i mixed it up of course i meant VCF :-P
13:16:16woodensoulwhat == way
13:16:17GodEaterssn: installing "rockbox" only required unzipping files - so yes - but I suspect you mean you want to be able to then just insert the card and boot into rockbox correct ?
13:16:23DerPapstand found it on the tracker

13:16:34ssnbecause GodEater yes
13:16:40ssnLlorean: sorry :)
13:16:58*Llorean wonders where people keep getting the idea that Rockbox is a form of Linux
13:17:03GodEaterssn: in that case you need the apple firmware on the card in order to have a rockbox bootloader
13:17:27DerPapstLlorean: Open source is _always_ linux
13:17:28LloreanGodEater: You need an Apple Firmware Partition, it can be very small and doesn't need apple firmware in it, though.
13:17:34ssni want to get my ipod mini to accept this cf card, but when i use the ipod with this card, i cannot get the apple firmware on it
13:17:50GodEaterLlorean: you're so right - I keep forgetting that feature of ipodpatcher

13:20:13GodEaterssn: you just need two partitions, one small one near the beginning of the card, marked as type 0
13:20:16pondlifeIt's ready, but PCMBUF beep on PP has a bug.
13:20:24GodEaterssn: and then the FAT32 one after it taking up the rest of the card
13:20:33pondlifeI have no tarrget that shows the issue
13:21:05DerPapstssn: some partitiontables:
13:21:11GodEater#ifdef it out for PP targets ?
13:21:17ssnis it ok if the first partition has just 1 block?
13:21:19pondlifeCommitting keyclick might give someone who has a PP target the impetus to fix the PCM layer though.
13:21:37pondlifeI don't like #ifdefs particularly..
13:21:42GodEaterssn: it needs to be large enough for the rockbox bootloader to go into
13:21:50DerPapstssn: iirc yes.
13:21:52pondlifeThe broken code is in the current build anyway ;)
13:22:35ssnGodEater: whats "large enough" :D

14:25:51GodEaterthere's some info in there about the license they got eCos under
14:27:43GodEaterlinuxstb: if you wish to ask about their obligations under that license, it might be worth asking in the thread. ukre is pretty much the alpha and omega of what they did back then.
14:28:13GodEaternot that he could help us out personally now, since he doesn't work for rio anymore
14:28:36GodEaterhe's busy making other people very unhappy about a certain popular cell phone
14:29:15linuxstbSure, I'll post the question in the forum thread, but it could also have been asked in your email - but I missed the consultation deadline... ;)
14:29:46GodEaterit could have been yes - but I can't go back in time and change it now...

14:35:49webguest12hi i need som help with my rockbox, i have the v2 on my iaudio x5.. and somehow its gone into mute.. how do i remove mute ?
14:36:08linuxstbTurn the volume up
14:36:15webguest12that doesnt help...
14:36:21GodEaterunpause it...
14:36:24linuxstbWhat do you mean by "v2" ?
14:36:37linuxstbOf what?
14:36:39webguest12or what ever the latest version is
14:36:55linuxstbRockbox doesn't have a numbered release for the X5.
14:37:13webguest12when i boot up my device it says version 2.0
14:37:24DerPapstthat's probably the bootloader...
14:37:44*DerPapst knows nothing about the X5 and shuts up
14:37:59linuxstbYou can see the version of Rockbox itself in the System menu somewhere
14:38:08moosyup DerPapst bootloader version 2
14:38:09webguest12yea when its booting up
14:38:25webguest12anyways, is there anyway to enable/disable mute
14:38:29Lars_GPaulJam: You mean es260 v1 or v2? no idea, to be sincere... sigh I guess v2 will not load rockbox?
14:38:37linuxstbThere isn't a mute option
14:38:40webguest12becaause i see a mute icon thingy up there with the rest of the volume thingys
14:38:41Lars_GI'll take the risk, and if I can't rockbox it, I'll resell it locally

14:49:47linuxstbRegarding 3., I'm torn about how to handle bitmaps - whether they should specified using full-screen co-ordinates (as the current patch does it), or if they should be drawn within a viewport. I'm now being convinced by the second option.

14:53:32Lloreanlinuxstb: I thought they should be done within it.
14:54:41LloreanMore for logic than anything else though. To a user, the viewports are going to seem to be "on top" of other things, and they're going to want to define images within them if the image is expected to show up. It just 'makes sense' from the standpoint of windows and other similar things.
14:55:05amiconnOf course bitmap coordinates should be relative to the active viewport...

15:34:20linuxstb^to DogBoy
15:36:26linuxstbLinusN: I think it's more that the code is designed to work around limitations of full-width text lines. So for example, bitmaps are always drawn last, so they are not overwritten by text. That's not needed with viewports.

15:44:27DogBoylinuxstb, I can't see anything there by way of explaining how it's different from what was done before
15:44:50DogBoyas far as what the reason or intention is
15:45:19Lars_GSo we have a rockcurses now ;)
15:50:17linuxstbDogBoy: Basically, the LCD drawing API in Rockbox currently treats the LCD as a single full-screen window made up of lines of text of the same height, and drawing (graphics and text) is done within this window. Lines of text then scroll full-width (or with a left-margin) covering the full width of the screen. The viewports concept allows the apps code to define lots of smaller rectangular windows (viewports) on the screen, and drawing/s
15:50:17linuxstbcrolling is limited to the confines of that rectangle.
15:50:58DogBoythank you
15:52:01linuxstbThe first use of this will be in the WPS, but the plan is to use them throught Rockbox to create a more flexible UI.

16:00:12Slasherinow it looks funny that i have made so large "typos" and didn't even notice it :)
16:00:35Nico_Palso, will it be possible to say "sraw a list in that viewport" if the list is made of several viewports?
16:01:26linuxstbNico_P: The reason is to give flexibilty about positioning, and also to simplify the code.

16:02:04Nico_Plinuxstb: isn't the positioning already flexible enough?
16:02:41Nico_PSlasheri: do you think it's sane to keep an AA path in the DB for each track?
16:02:43linuxstbYou can't have icons/scrollbar on the right hand side for example - with a single viewport, the lines would scroll over them.
16:02:57Nico_Pah, right
16:03:46Nico_Pbut then it wouldn't be possible to specify a viewport to draw a list into, would it?
16:04:09linuxstbYes, but the list code then uses more viewports to split that viewport up into the different parts.

19:04:57webguest75hello, someone in here who has the AS3514 datasheet? ..because i want do implement the alarm wake up feature for the sansa E200
19:05:31jhMikeSAS3514 doesn't have a wakeup alarm function
19:06:36***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
19:06:43webguest75the feature overview says - > selectable alarm (seconds or minutes)
19:07:45preglowit probably just sleeps
19:08:04LambdaCalculus37Just looked at my c200... no wakeup alarm.
19:08:05*jhMikeS can look it over again but can't distribute that datasheet
19:09:32amiconnThere is no wakeup alarm in the as3514
19:10:00amiconnThe only thing the rtc can do as an 'alarm' is to fire an interrupt, either once per second or once per minute
19:10:43LambdaCalculus37amiconn: But as for a real wakeup alarm, there's no such thing.
19:10:55webguest75is 1 min. the longes periode for the interrupt? ...can a wake-up via interrupt be done?
19:11:32jhMikeSyeah, just something almost useless :) It could be used in conjunction with a sleep mode in rockbox and a countdown if that gets implemented.
19:11:46amiconnInterrupts require the cpu to be running, and it's only either 1 int/sec or 1int/min. No other periods.
19:12:38webguest75if the wake via interrupt can be done than the feature can be implemented... there is no need of a prog. wake-up time... i time periode is all we need
19:13:23amiconnYou *can not* wake up a cpu with an interrupt if it's powered down
19:13:23webguest75to bad... :-( so it is not possible (without wake-up via int)
19:13:42jhMikeSunlike the pcf chips there is not power-on boot function
19:13:53jhMikeSautomatic anyway

20:57:54jhMikeSNico_P: more runtime for the codecs
20:58:09Nico_Pupping it to 32k seems to solve the playback glitches people are experiencing on ipods
20:58:28Nico_Pmore runtime? what do you mean?
20:59:12jhMikeScodecs get more chances to process audio
21:00:09Nico_Pyeah but that's a problem at the very start of buffering
21:00:33 Quit Arathis (Client Quit)
21:00:37Nico_Pis there anything serious against setting it back to 32k?
21:00:40jhMikeSbecause the codec thread is bumped in priority no doubt.
21:01:46jhMikeSAll the devices I have did better overall with 16k
21:02:21jhMikeSWhich particular devices don't like 16k?
21:02:50Nico_Papparently some ipods... not exactly sure which
21:03:19Nico_Phow do you evaluate the improvement?
21:05:48jhMikeSbuffering time and relative fullness of both buffers and 16k won out on everything I've got. It's the initial PCM fill where buffering might not run enough. The buffering thread priority could follow the codec one and I suspect that problem would go away without sacrificing anything at other times.

22:32:17berndlhi everyone. i am looking to buy a SanDisk Sansa e250 which should be supported by rockbox as I have seen on the frontpage. Amazon lists the model-number of the player as: SDMX4-2048-E70. my question: since for this player only v1 models are supported i want to ask, if one can tell from the model-number if it's a v1 or v2 player?
22:32:22Nico_Pscorche|w: what do you mean?
22:32:37markunNico_P: one drawback is that all dirs are scanned, even if no files in them need to be added

22:43:46Bagderand VC# is certainly never gonna be possible
22:43:56KungfuJoeMight I ask why?
22:44:05preglowKungfuJoe: c# depends on .net
22:44:10KungfuJoeAhh, I see
22:44:20jhMikeSamiconn: I have rectangle union functions so that's rather simple anyway. It's the cache stuff. Perhaps I'll try it using uncached buffers which might not even matter. I'd like to be able to allocate _grey_info in any way suitable as well.
22:44:20BagderVC# is proprietary microsoft stuff
22:44:22BigBambiKungfuJoe: Think about the capabilities of the platform

22:44:50amiconn_grey_info is private to the greylib...

22:47:54Hans-Martinpreglow: of course, I mainly thought about the standardized signal paths defined by the architecture.
22:48:19linuxstbBagder: So bin size is the size of rockbox.bin, and ram size is total ram usage (code, data and bss) ?

23:17:53stripwaxBuschel - (for the logs) - I'm hearing pops and crackles with that latest patch on the 24MHz->80MHz transition (turning on PLL causes lost audio samples perhaps?)
23:17:58Bagderdionoea: must be a typo, I removed it now from the master
23:18:06stripwaxadded a note to your patch
23:18:06amiconnThe buffered drawing functions do work, as you can see by compiling the greyscale test plugin
23:18:45amiconnstripwax: Wouldn't surprise me.
23:18:47stripwaxsoap - did it work ok for you? I gave it a whirl with several codecs and plugins
23:19:11jhMikeSI just made buffered to true when initializing, the replaced common drawing with grey_xxxx (via the lcd_() macro). Guess I'll keep trying to find some big oops.
23:19:30dionoeaBagder: thanks. I also wanted to know if you planed on keeping all the old builds or if you had something like a 2 month limit

23:22:17dionoeawell looks like it doesn't :/
23:22:20stripwaxamiconn - seems plausible. does the PLL code have just a busy wait loop that keeps checking until the PLL is up?
23:22:38amiconnNot only that, it also stops the other code
23:22:57soapstripwax, buschel (logs) - I had no trouble - only had a chance to play four albums, all MP3 APS - No skipping, even while buffering (I thought you had reported that, stripwax) - and scrolling through a long list in the file browser caused less skipping than my build from a month ago did - though I realize that is not a scientific comparison.
23:22:59amiconn(that's necessary according to jhMikeS' tests)
23:23:41stripwaxamiconn - it needs to disable all interrupts/fiq's/whatever too?

23:24:00amiconnfiq is kept running iirc, but irqs are disabled
23:25:02stripwaxsoap - not really skipping in my case - just what sounds like missed samples. So in a silent period, you won't hear anything, and in a loud passage you'd probably miss it, but somewhere in between you might catch something. if you still have your sine wave test, try that and see if it crackles for you?

23:25:34jhMikeSwe're talking about clock switching? without the delays it's data aborts all the way. All interrupts are disabled during the actual switch and reenabled during the lock.
23:26:07soapahh - stripwax - I will try that. And you are still getting that behavior?
23:26:29stripwaxsoap - not 'still' - only with the latest (v6) version
23:27:27dionoeaBagder: ah, looks like there are permission errors on /cygwin/2007-11-21/* which make it skip file deletion
23:28:07stripwaxjhMikeS - yep. so dropped samples sounds likely if PLL needs extra time after being re-enabled (which sounds plausible)
23:28:22amiconnjhMikeS: Not sure what lcd() macro you're talking about - the code in svn doesn't seem to use such a macro
23:28:31Bagderdionoea: indeed, me fix
23:28:52stripwaxsoap - btw - the audio skipping on initial buffer that I mentioned before is (afaik) unrelated to Buschel's work on power consumption

23:31:17jhMikeSstripwax: dropped samples? the interrupts are reenabled during the lock loop (I'm not that dense :p).
23:31:41stripwaxHm, turning on the old switch only seems to flip one bit of the DEV_EN registers - I'd have thought there'd be at least two (opto and PLL). Although I've not really read the patch :)
