#rockbox log for 2008-01-20

00:00:30amiconnYeah, but usb thread != any app thread that could be accessing the disk...
00:00:58jhMikeSnot reinitializing the mutex was one important thing. I'd say a collision is unlikely but I'll go with sound threading practice anytime.
00:01:35jhMikeSbut USB thread + any app (like mpegplayer's disk thread) could race through both

00:09:19amiconnSomeone with a nano should dump the ata identify info, and check whether it says the disk supports the power management feature set or not
00:10:19Aloneaany ideas on whats up with the text viewer? I looked through the logs and didn't see any updates pertaining to it, so I assume its still messed up a bit. will check for sure in a few minutes.
00:10:21amiconnIf it does not, this is the reason why our ata driver without the nano hack confuses the flash disk, and it means we should check that feature bit and decide whether to send sleep commands dynamically

00:38:07Nico_PI opened the player and listened to the HD trying to boot... not a pretty noise
00:38:37Nico_Pthe back case also has a nice dent

00:49:38Nico_Phmm maybe buying a player is more worth it
00:50:10amiconnNico_P: bmp in tar definitely does help...
00:50:39amiconnSo it's in fact the number of files to load that counts (unless you do loads of additional seeks, which would also be bad)
00:51:00amiconniCatcher loads in ~0.2 sec on my 2nd Gen from tar
00:51:15Nico_Pamiconn: good to hear! the reading of the tar is sequential, so no unnecessary seeks
00:51:22Nico_Pthanks for testing :)
00:51:22amiconn(and it still has to load the backdrop separately, as documented in the patch)

00:52:34amiconnBut I would still prefer the bmp strip method, as that doesn't require an exotic tool for theme creators (on windows, tar is an exotic thing...)
00:53:06 Part brent0n
00:53:14Slasherii think the improvement should be even more than that. Opening a file has always been a very expensive operation
00:53:21jhMikeSIf you have WinRAR, nothings exotic in Windows
00:53:24amiconnAnd the bmp strip method is in fact already used in a different place in rockbox - the icon loader

00:53:36amiconnwinrar isn't free, even not as in free beer
00:53:37Nico_PI do like the strip method too, but having the wps rather self contained is nice too, independantly from speed improvements
00:53:55jhMikeSwell, doesn't stop me from just using it regarless of the nag :p
00:53:59amiconnIt's nasty shareware I won't install

00:54:12*amiconn uses 7-zip
00:54:17Slasherieven iriver boots faster when it loads dircache state from disk before loading the wps images
00:55:00XavierGrI think that a tarred wps is indeed a tidy solution
00:55:43XavierGrvery good when sharing multiple WPSes
00:55:45jhMikeSmy point is really that I think most all archive formats are covered with some piece of Windows software
00:56:10*Nico_P likes 7zip too
00:56:24BigBambi7zip does tar on windows I think
00:56:38Nico_Pyeah it does...
00:56:40jhMikeStar isn't compression though, correct?
00:56:40amiconnjhMikeS: Yeah. In fact 7-zip does support tar file creation. But 'some' windows software isn't what joe user typically has installed and knows how to use
00:57:01Nico_PjhMikeS: no, tar is just file concatenating
00:57:10Nico_Pvery easy to read
00:57:28Aloneaamiconn: my dad pretty refuses to use anything but zip.
00:57:36BigBambiNico_P: is the tar an all or nothing replacement, or does it live alongside separate bmps?
00:57:39amiconnDoes the patch retain the ability to load single bmp files?
00:58:16Nico_Pamiconn: yes (it even creates duplication I don't really like)
00:58:19amiconnOtherwise it would be bad for wps development
00:58:22BigBambiIn that case, why not go for it
00:58:49BigBambiIf people are savy enough to get 7zip they make 'quicker' wps's, if not it still works
00:58:56jhMikeSNico_P: tar as a virtual file system would neaten it up.
00:58:59BigBambiAnd all the shipped ones could easily be tarred
00:59:15rasherBigBambi: it'd also be very annoying to have to tar up your wps each time you made a change
00:59:25amiconnThe tar support still means additional code
00:59:27Nico_PI'd like to add support for having the backdrop in the tar file too if possible, before I commit
00:59:52BigBambirasher: well, if you are already copying it is only one additional step
00:59:57BigBambiBut I take the point
01:00:50XavierGramiconn: from my understanding the tar solution only need one file open, while the bmp strip method might not get away with all of them
01:00:51*amiconn would edit a wps on the target disk while developing it
01:00:51AloneaNico_P: so are you guys thinking of making the wps into tarballs? instead of zip? or have the player read the tar?
01:00:51amiconnHence, no copying of unchanged parts
01:00:51BigBambiBut, if it is optional
01:00:56 Nick fxb__ is now known as fxb (
01:01:17XavierGrmaybe go for both then :P
01:01:46BigBambiAlonea: Having all the images in a tar, that is read by the player
01:02:15Nico_Pit would be nice to have the whole wps as a single tar though... currently there is the .wps, the backdrop and the tar
01:02:27BigBambiAlonea: And a tar is essentially just sticking the files together, so is much easier to do anything with than zip. The advantage is you only have to open one file
01:02:35AloneaBigBambi: ah, ok. so no need for the user to unarchive it? cause that would throw a lot of people for a loop
01:02:51BigBambiAlonea: no
01:02:56amiconnMy cons against tar are (1) additional code, (2) extra step for packaging wps with an unfamiliar tool (at least for windows users)
01:03:07AloneaBigBambi: good. tar is your friend anyways.
01:03:09amiconnThe bmp strip code is already partially there
01:03:55XavierGramiconn: I am sure that (2) can't be solve with guidelines in the wiki. IMHO a user will need help from the wiki to build a wps, so why not instruct them how to use tar?
01:04:04 Quit ender` (" We know the speed of light... so, what's the speed of darkness?")
01:04:09BigBambiI don't think simple instructions along the lines of download 7zip, then add to tar are too complicated next to writing the wps syntax
01:04:10XavierGrcan't be solve = can be solved
01:04:36amiconnIt's not an easy decision, as there are some more bmp related problems/shortcomings which cropped up lately
01:05:02BigBambiwhich ones?
01:05:23jhMikeSNico_P: I'm just thinking a tiny layer that has awareness of the source being a directory tree or tarball, and some read, open, close, seek functions act the same no matter the source. Why can't a rockbox tool be provided to make tar files?
01:05:33Nico_Pamiconn: I don't see why we couldn't go with both. they're not incompatible
01:05:34rasheramiconn: regarding (2), these are theme authors. Don't we expect them to have a slight clue? I'd agree with you if 7zip was required for installing rockbox.
01:05:46mhydronicdoes updating my ipod firmware affect rockbox at all?
01:05:49amiconnUsing a single bitmap several times; how to handle bitmaps in conjuction with viewports etc
01:06:18amiconnNico_P: binsize.
01:06:34BigBambimhydronic: You will need to reinstall the bootloader
01:07:16XavierGrNico_P: is the tar patch so big in the bin size aspect?
01:08:05*amiconn will check
01:08:09Nico_PjhMikeS: yeah, the layer thing is a nice idea (the tool too). The main problem I actually have with loading the backdrop from a tar is the need to adapt the existing code
01:08:42Nico_PXavierGr: I don't know... I'll let amiconn give the figure :)
01:08:52mhydronicbigbambi: thanks
01:08:57amiconnXavierGr: +648 bytes on 2nd Gen
01:09:34*amiconn checks recorder.. will take a few mins
01:09:36jhMikeSNico_P: What I had in mind would just be a matter of direct file api replacement I think.
01:10:11Aloneaoh! I wanted to ask why is it when you set a bmp as a backdrop when the next time you start your player your backdrop is back to default? (i think the wps theme sets it??)
01:10:20amiconnjhMikeS: That virtual file system actually sounds like a bad idea
01:10:32Nico_PjhMikeS: something like "/dir/tarfile.tar:subfile" ?
01:10:49amiconnIt would reintroduce the load delays through the backdoor
01:10:56Nico_Pit would discourage reading the tar files in order too
01:11:13amiconn...because it would replace the many on-disk seeks with many in-tarfile seeks
01:11:33amiconnThe whole point is to avoid excessive seeking
01:11:55jhMikeSdepends on the construction I think
01:12:05amiconnIt does not
01:12:46Aloneamy dad was complaining about it to me and I was wondering how to fix it. I assume the only way at this point would be to change it in the wps, but why have an option to set a bmp as a backdrop if your system isn't going to remember?
01:12:47jhMikeScan't see where any delay or excessive seeking would be introduced
01:12:48amiconnAs soon as you abstract the 2 layers, the upper layer no longer knows about the order of files within the tar
01:13:08amiconnAnd tar files are meant to be read sequentially

01:15:36amiconnjhMikeS: No, but the wps code doesn't know about the order of files in the tar

01:16:22jhMikeSnor on disk though
01:16:37amiconnNo, but then you save nothing

01:17:11amiconnThat's where the savings come from

02:11:59bignoseAlonea: same. I immediately put free software on them.
02:12:22soapThere is no player you can buy new which supports Rockbox at the moment, unless you can find Sansa E200 v1s

02:22:42soapSo you've never had the Apple firmware boot for you?
02:24:06bignosekarashata: indeed, and most good IRC clients recognise the standard <URL:foo> notation.
02:24:16bignosesoap: it booted, until I tried replacing it.
02:24:37soapok - so has it booted since then. Have you ever successfully restored it?
02:24:58soapThe is no point trying to install Rockbox or IpodLinux again until you get Apple firmware booting properly.
02:24:59bignosesoap: only by giving it to someone who has iTunes. none of the "restore without iTunes" methods have worked for me.
02:25:34bignoseI don't have ready access to any machine with iTunes, so I'm stuck until I can get this original firmware booting again.
02:25:55soapNo offense, but it would be a hardware failure of the most particular kind to lead to such an issue - the only other likely alternative is operator error.
02:26:40bignosesoap: yes, I'm quite willing to believe it's operator error.
02:27:02bignoseall that remains is finding what that error is. AFAICT, I've been following instructions properly.

02:27:49soapThat is something you could easily mistake while iTunes could not.

02:28:25soapDid you buy this new?
02:28:46 Join psilonux [0] (
02:28:49soapDoes iTunes identify it as a 6GB second gen? There used to be a lot of frankenminis on eBay.
02:29:54soapI'm honestly not sure how much of an issue that is - I assume it is a large one - but without watching you follow the instructions there is little else I can offer you outside saying "I have yet to see the process not work."
02:30:05bignosefor those interested (and not to continue discussion of this), the relevant RFC for URLs in context is RFC 1738; specifically, the appendix "Recommendations for URLs in Context".
02:30:22BigBambibignose: Regardless,c ould you just not please?
02:30:29bignosesoap: I've never seen it on iTunes, I don't know what it shows.
02:31:12bignoseBigBambi: no.
02:31:20BigBambiand why not?
02:31:25BigBambias a matter of courtesy
02:31:45bignoseokay. this is rather off-topic, is everyone okay with continuing this discussion?
02:32:11BigBambiforget it. If you insist on being difficult
02:32:42bignoseBigBambi: in short: for the same reason I generate standard HTML pages, instead of making concessions to buggy clients.
02:33:27BigBambiThat RFC you link to is not relevant here anyway
02:33:37BigBambiBut forget it
02:34:05bignosesoap: so, if I were to generate a session log of me following the instructions, where would be a proper place to ask for help with that?

04:46:53webguest95finally I've gotten onto IRC and found real live people
04:46:53Aloneahave a question dear?
04:47:08webguest95not particularly, just learning the ropes
04:47:22webguest95waiting for a full featured sansa port with full USB support I guess
04:47:33webguest95maybe find a mentor to learn how to code
04:47:53Aloneaah ok. sansa? did you end up with a V2 instead of v1?
04:48:27AukenIt doesn't make any sense, and I can't find anyone else anywhere who has my problem...
04:48:53webguest95no don't have a sansa yet, but once there's full USB support I'm going to go get one.
04:49:01webguest95or maybe rockbox on a 2nd gen Zune
04:49:23psycho_maniacwont see that one for awhile, zune.
04:49:25webguest95I don't think that port has begun yet
04:49:40Aloneawhat do you mean by full usb? I mean, it charges with usb, and you can transfer files. you can also listen and charge. what else would you need?
04:50:01 Quit mhydronic ()
04:50:17webguest95isn't there some other player that would be hardware equivalent to a zune? most players come from a handful of ODM & reference designs anway I suspect
04:50:49AukenI love that I can use my ipod to transfer large files
04:51:25scorchewebguest95: define "hardware equivalernt"
04:51:48scorchethere are many metrics one can use..
04:52:53soapI think he means identical, not fraternal, twin.
04:52:58soapSuch as the gigabeat S.
04:53:15AukenAre there any online communities for ipod Hacking?
04:55:59webguest95When you look down at the checklist it seems to imply that USB port does not work with Rockbox on Sansa yet
04:57:41webguest95is there the option to treat the memory/hard drive in the sansa like an external storage device with the rockbox firmware?
04:58:40Aloneawebguest95: dunno about that, but I got my dad a sansa e280 for christmas and its all good. I mean, the usb doesn't work directly in rockbox for transfer like it does for the gigabeat (I assume others as well). Essentially it loads the OF to transfer files. You can have the usb in while in RB, but you will only be able to charge.
04:59:14 Quit midgey ()
04:59:19psycho_maniacyes. to get it to connect to the computer you have to load the OF and you can copy your files. disconnect and it will boot into rockbox.
04:59:44webguest95that's what I was referring to by full USB support
04:59:47Aloneaand to load the OF, you just plug in USB when the player is off and it will automatically load the OF
05:00:04Aloneaand then when the player restarts, you are back in rockbox
05:00:18webguest95do I have to copy files manually or is there a syncing type functionality?
05:00:25psycho_maniacAlonea: can you still not plug it in while your in rockbox?
05:00:31psycho_maniacyou have to do it manually.
05:00:43webguest95what do you guys use on the desktop computer to give an iTunes like functionality
05:00:57psycho_maniacthe database thats built in rockbox
05:01:10Aloneapsycho_maniac: you can plug in your USB while in RB, but your PC wont be able to read it correctly. So like I said, it just charges.
05:01:47Aloneawebguest95: iTunes? *shudder* but if you want to find stuff like by artist, album, etc. there is the database feature on the player
05:02:03 Quit MethoS- (Remote closed the connection)
05:03:04Aloneawebguest95: but my preference is to organize everything in folders (like you would on a computer).
05:03:35psycho_maniaci like the same preference as Alonea
05:04:01webguest95I understand the rockbox firmware can let me browse by these different criteria, I'm talking about keeping a desktop application to keep the music sync-ed up between the portable player and the desktop PC
05:04:03Aloneaits actually why I like my old Archos player
05:04:43webguest95why do you prefer a folder/directory structure?
05:04:44Aloneawebguest95: no. rockbox does not create software for Windows, Mac, or Linux. Only Mp3 players
05:05:13psycho_maniacI think there are some as i tried some once. Search for "The Godfather". I think thats what it was called and NO not the movie.
05:05:15webguest95I understand that rockbox does not create software for the desktop and it is strictly a replacement firmware
05:05:50webguest95but client software is used to connect to the rockbox player
05:06:09Aloneawebguest95: its easier for me. I mean, I have my normal folders that are named by artist and then album, but then I have folders with a "mix". I guess you could do the same with a playlist, but I prefer folder
05:06:12Aloneawebguest95: no.
05:06:30PaulPositionMost people just drag and drop files to the directory structure they like.. But I suppose any file syncing tool would do, never tested.
05:06:30Aloneawebguest95: think of your player as an external hard drive.
05:07:08Aloneawebguest95: and under most systems (would be bad for me to assume all) it shows up as an external hard drive
05:07:16psycho_maniacMine i have 2 folders Downloaded and Cd's wish has Artist/Album folders
05:08:34PaulPositionIn contrast, the iTunes way is to copy the files, rename them to some obfuscated random code, cram them all in the same place and build a database because else you couldn't play them..
05:08:36AloneaI got tons. I got folders with my books, folders with my gameboy games, picture folders, and then the basic artist album folders, and then special folders with my latest music I got, and then music from anime's, games, tvt/movies, etc.
05:08:46webguest95Alonea: thanks for the clarification. most people treat it as an external drive and drag-&-drop files
05:08:59Aloneawebguest95: correct.
05:09:17Aloneawebguest95: I even use it sometimes to save files from school.
05:09:21webguest95Is there a desktop application that will give me iTunes type look & feel & usability?
05:09:34 Join jhulst [0] (n=jhulst@unaffiliated/jhulst)
05:11:46psycho_maniacYeah I have the same as you Alonea. I just dont browse those folders often. When i get a lot of new songs i create a "Newest" folder also and I have a Videos folder.
05:12:01Aloneapsycho_maniac: ah yes. my videos folder..forgot about it!
05:12:13Aloneawebguest95: ummm. dunno. never seen iTunes before.
05:13:13psycho_maniacThe only reason why i got the 80gig 5.5gen ipod is because of rockbox. I hate iTunes.
05:13:22PaulPositionDoesn't syncing with itunes become dangerous anyway? Like you erase something from the player, maybe by error, and it erases it from your computer too when syncing.. (i dunno, never used that..)
05:13:25***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
05:15:32psycho_maniacalso you can only have one library. like you cannot get songs from your cousins computer that he recently got because if you do you lose your library (over 5k songs lets say) just to get 30 other songs

05:25:55webguest95Does rockbox have the ability to show the album cover like on the ipod?
05:26:53PaulPositionIt does, but it doesn't extract it from the id3 tags. You need to put a .bmp file in each folder (cover.bmp) ..

14:14:37Kushal_oneI own a Sandisk Sansa c250 and I accidentally deleted the whole directory structure in the 2 GB player. Now it will not start. did I brick it? is there a way for me to bring it back to use? I have tried recovery mode and diag mode but there is no screen display and the computer (macbook, tiger) does not show that the deivce is connected. The only thing that I can see is the blue backlight behind the navigation buttons. Please help.

14:22:37bluebrotherDomonoky_: I just had an idea about rbutil on Vista ... maybe calling the binary "install.exe" helps with the UAC issues?
14:23:19ender`what's the problem on vista?
14:24:02Domonoky_UAC on vista prevents rbutil from working. especially the patchers, as they need direct disk access ..
14:24:29Domonoky_bluebrother: do you really think another filename would help ? is vista this silly ?
14:24:57bluebrotherthere is an issue (read: special handling) for install.exe and similar.
14:24:58 Join Arathis [0] (
14:24:59Domonoky_the other problem with vista is, that no rbutil dev has it to test..
14:25:26bluebrotherI read about this on the cygwin ml ... they had issues with the tool "install" and vista tried to elevate it
14:25:37Domonoky_so we need to find someone with vista to test this :-)
14:26:30bluebrotherI just read that this handling seems to be a compatibility thingy ...

14:30:10Domonoky_according to this we could even name it: rbutil-install-vista-hack.exe :-)

14:36:23Domonoky_now, we only need someone, to confirm that this is enough to run rbutil cleanly on vista, and i will rename :-)
14:37:36bluebrothermaybe it's sufficient to have a vista-compatibility-app that simply is called vista-install.exe and calls the real rbutil

14:52:17Domonoky_rbutil could automatically select the encoder, depending on the detected device..

21:21:20T-MacHey guys i threw on a theme from the webpage " Metroid " and all the text is screwd up what should i do to throw on a default?
21:21:29T-Maci can't navigate at all
21:21:56linuxstbWhat device are you running Rockbox on?
21:22:19 Quit Siku (Read error: 145 (Connection timed out))
21:22:24linuxstbTurn it off (long press on PLAY/PAUSE), then turn it on, and as soon as the backlight comes on, turn the hold switch on.
21:22:33linuxstbThat will reset your settings.
21:22:46linuxstbAlternatively, you can manually edit the config.cfg file from your computer.
21:23:48T-Macso restarting it into the original OS from itunes will reset my theme in rockbox?
21:24:19T-Macexcellent thanks :) i can now read! :)
21:25:04 Join lespea [0] (
21:25:13Horschtand no, booting into the original FW won't clear your settings
21:25:36T-Maci can see that but it allowed me to be able to read the text from the theme :)
21:26:19T-Macgrrrr i tried changing it again.... i rebooted it and still i cant see the text... it seams to be stuck on metroid :(
21:26:23Horschtyeah, it all depends at what point you turn the hold switch on
21:26:40Horschtuse a different them than metroid then
21:27:03T-Maci tried thats what i did but the metroid one stay stuck on it.... i changed it to a orignal rockbox theme and it stayed on metroid :(
21:27:29linuxstbIf you turn the hold switch on before the backlight comes on, you'll start the Apple firmware. If you turn it on after the backlight comes on (but before Rockbox itself starts - you need to be quick...), that will reset your settings.
21:27:34T-Maci just rebooted it twice and its still stuck on metroid and i cant read
21:27:46T-Macoh okay :)
21:27:47 Quit MethoS- (Connection timed out)
21:28:00Horschtyou will then be presented with the default rockbox theme
21:28:11T-Macexcellent! :) awsm thanks for the tip :)

21:29:41soapNico_P, if you have a chance to answer a question regarding the bmp_resize patch for someone (me) who isn't working on it: What is the (theoretically speaking) solution for the large static buffer?
21:29:51soapIf no time - ignore me- it's cool.
21:30:27Nico_Psoap: resizing on bitmap loading or using the buffering API
21:30:34 Quit spiorf (Remote closed the connection)
21:30:35Nico_P... to allocate a temp buffer
21:30:50linuxstbThat sounds suspicously like malloc... ;)
21:31:08Buschelpreglow: nice result :)
21:31:40Nico_Plinuxstb: yeah, I'm not sure it's very viable anyway... maybe we'll just have to accept using a static buffer
21:31:55soapBuschel, with the mad rush of random runtime results coming in now - what runtime comparisons do you most need to see?
21:31:59Nico_Pit could be used for all possible resizing though
21:32:24linuxstbI would have thought you could resize whilst loading, without needing a large buffer though.
21:33:19Nico_Pyeah, it's possible. I really don't feel like implementing it though
21:33:24 Quit phossy (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
21:33:35Nico_Pthe bitmap loading code is complex to me
21:33:56T-Machow comme when i plug my rockbox player sometimes it detects on the pc so i can access it but sometimes it just charge's the batterie.... i have the setting charge while usb pluged in to Off and it still only works half the time

21:36:18Buschelsoap: there are no results for c200, mini and mini2g yet, which could be interesting. furthermore I need some support (which I already asked for in the flyspray) for fiddling out the minimum register settings for c200, mini, mini2g and photo/color.
21:37:01soappoop - I only have a Nano, Video, E200
21:37:35Buschelhopefully some users of such come around the patch...
21:38:31soapyou need them in here, pretty much, don't you.
21:38:48soapOr is there a series of configs we could pre-build for people to test in order?
21:41:42linuxstbNico_P: Hmm, so FS #5697 doesn't touch the bmp loading function at all - it loads the large bitmaps, and rescales every time it needs to draw it?
21:41:46 Join Siku [0] (
21:42:04Nico_Plinuxstb: not everytime I think, but apart from that, yes
21:43:00Nico_Pthe patch does need improvement
21:44:36rasherJdGordon, linuxstb: using viewports + viewports-lists, I can't compile for m:robe 500
21:44:49JdGordonyeah, ignore it :p
21:45:14kugelJdGordon: Hey, I know what tdooke meant in his last comment
21:45:16Buschelsoap: I also thought about pre-config... but for now we only have 2x 5022 and 1x 5024 with detailled configuration -> 5020 totally missing. I don't know whether c200 is identical to to e200, but I could use the same as a first try...
21:45:36JdGordonkugel: enlighten me then :D
21:45:36kugelat least I think so, I didn't even apply your patch yet
21:45:54Buschelsoap: you also see that the 5022/5024 devices use different settings especially with the LCD stuff
21:46:29soap:( so the answer is "Sit back and wait for a 5020 user to step forward to play."
21:46:32kugelJdGordon: I think he was talking about that the indent of the icons and text aren't proper at times
21:46:52kugeldepending on icons/scrollbar/list title to be displayed

21:49:34Nico_Pread_bmp_fd() is really discouraging IMO
21:50:07Buschelsoap/preglow: with a little luck we may find out for what the left device enabled are used for. then we could check whether these must be enabled all the time or only for a special action (like DEV_USB or DEV_OPTO)
21:50:56Buschelpreglow/soap: e.g. you can switch off/on DEV_I2C unless I2C activity is going on −− this works on my 5G, but showed errors on a H10
21:51:47kugelNico_P: I know what you're talking about ;)
21:51:51preglowBuschel: does that reduce power consumption by much?
21:52:01Buschelalso the yet unknown DEV_EN 0x100 seems to enable/disable GPIOx_INPUT. I am not usre whether we caould use this knowledge
21:52:15Buschelpreglow: not really
21:54:02preglowi don't think i2c sucks too much, really
21:54:25Buschelyou'll never know what the PP does...
21:55:14oboBuschel: I have a c200 - are you just after runtime tests?
21:55:33Buschelanother test by saratoga shows that lowering the core voltage (PP5024 only) saves some more power −− I could implement it for testing, but this will only affect e200 then
21:56:17LloreanWouldn't that then work on PP5022s as well?
21:56:33Buschelobo: not only. It would be fine, if you could check whether the initialization for e200 also works for c200 (FS #8379, latest patch, system-pp502x.c).
21:57:03obookay, will do
21:57:20oboDomonoky_: are you still after someone with Vista?
21:57:35Buschelllorean: on PP5024 the as3514 is contained for which the commands to lower core voltage are known. PP5022 does not have this one included
21:57:43obookay, I have business edition here...
21:57:46LloreanDomonoky_: If you don't find someone with Vista in a few days, when I get home I'll be able to. It'll still be several days yet, though
21:57:52LloreanBuschel: Aaah, okay
21:57:55Buschelobo: thanks
21:58:08Domonoky_obo, please try domonoky/rbutilqt-v1.0.4.1pre.exe">
21:58:38oboDomonoky_: also, just to spice things up a bit... in the last few minor revisions of QT allow you to compile and make builds with MSVC as well as mingw
21:59:07Buschelobo: just add "|| defined(SANSA_C200)" to line #331 and change line #290 to "#if 0"
21:59:14Domonoky_obo: but then i would need msvc, i like the console more :-)
21:59:36oboDomonoky_: rbutil builds, but I wasn't able to produce a working libspeex - I was using the free express edition
22:00:11Domonoky_yes the libspeex make seem to not work outside of cygwin..
22:00:30oboyup, system calls to cat etc
22:00:33Buschelsoap: btw, you may try FS #8480 to have linear decrease of battery percent on e200
22:00:53Domonoky_i just build the rbspeex.lib in cygwin.. works :-)
22:01:14soapBuschel, do you want me to add that to the testing builds?
22:01:40Buschelsoap: like you want :o)
22:02:07Domonoky_obo: but what i want you to test on vista, isnt in svn, use the binary i posted :-)
22:02:17Buscheli thought about adding it to the patch. but it is another issue not directly connected to power consumption

22:06:08oboDomonoky_: yup, I am, just had to find all the DLLs :) - it prompted me for UAC access
22:06:22Domonoky_prompting is good..
22:06:54Domonoky_now the bootloader installation should work.. ie raw diskaccess for sansa/ipodpatcher
22:08:12Buschelpreglow/soap: one thing came my mind for nano -> we know that some of the enable bits are used for LCD. why not trying to only switch them on for LCD driver init and transfer and switch them off afterwards (like enable bits for USB)?
22:08:27oboDomonoky_: bootloader install worked okay
22:08:30Domonoky_i shall then commit the manifest for rbutil, and maybe in the same run also for sansapatcher and e200rpatcher ? (only ipodpatcher has one now)... :-)
