00:00:34inkognito_Ostripwax: don't you support it because you're not aware of the k3-thing or because this is not a rockbox-thing?
00:01:01Lloreaninkognito_O: not a rockbox thing

03:31:02LambdaCalculus37I was just called by a friend of mine with a Rockboxed H120, saying that Rockbox doesn't boot fully, and is giving him an "ATA -32 error", although I'm unsure what the error means. Any advice?
03:31:27LambdaCalculus37I'm thinking it has to do with his filesystem or the hard drive.
03:32:17LambdaCalculus37Llorean: Crap. I was afraid of that. =/
03:32:18LloreanI *think* it may be an issue requiring a touch of soldering, but I'm not really sure
03:32:35LloreanIt's actually a daughterboard thing, iirc. But that might've been -11
03:33:27LambdaCalculus37Llorean: If it *does* require soldering, what would I have to solder/
03:33:29 Join DaCapn [0] (
03:34:04LloreanI don't really no, I've never experienced the problem myself. The man to ask would be LinusN when he's around
03:35:01LambdaCalculus37All right, I'll ask him in the morning. He should be around by then.

03:35:54LambdaCalculus37But I also have to check the file system on my friend's H120, because he was also telling me that the free space/used space measurements are really unusual.
03:35:56 Quit tessarakt ("Client exiting")
03:36:25LloreanAccording to Rockbox, or Windows?
03:37:38LambdaCalculus37Llorean: According to Windows, he has (currently) 7.1 GB free. According to Rockbox, he has, and this is verbatim, "10 *!# $ B W { > .."
03:37:46LloreanThat's very strange
03:37:58LambdaCalculus37So I think his file system may be corrupt.
03:38:03LloreanRockbox will often report wrong values, but this is because Windows fails to update the FAT, iirc.
03:38:19LloreanYou can force Rockbox to rescan by pressing "Select" in the space free screen, if memory serves.
03:38:59LambdaCalculus37Yes, that's correct. I asked him to do it, but he says value given doesn't look correct.
03:39:50LambdaCalculus37I'm going to look at it this weekend, so I'll have a better understanding of what it is when I can see it with my own eyes.

05:52:04cool_walking_Well at that point they are installed.
05:52:16krazykitassuming you've done it correctly (unzipped it to the root of your device) you just go to the appropriate settings menu

05:54:38krazykitthen you unzipped it wrong or the wps is packaged incorrectly. did you unzip the WPS the same way you did your rockbox build?

06:46:07syn4pseis there a global that tells what resolution the player has, given it has an lcd?
06:47:58syn4psenm... i'll look at some more code..
06:49:23cool_walking_I think so. Look at the plugins and the SOURCES for bitmaps.
06:50:25cool_walking_Ha, LCD_WIDTH and LCD_HEIGHT..
06:51:05syn4pseholy cow. i'm going to bury myself in #define statements... :/
06:51:52syn4psei managed to squashify my tiles to 7x7. i dont' know if i can get them smaller.... i think figuring out all the different keypads is going to be hard...
06:52:35syn4psei only have one player (ipod).. heheh
06:54:51cool_walking_I saw something about an "action API" (?) that means you just map each button once. I think there was a commit not too long ago porting a couple of plugins to it.
06:55:13syn4psethat would be dandy. unless there's a BUTTON_FOO FAQ
06:56:25syn4psei might be able to use rockblox.c #define lines... i have similar keypresses (up, down, left, right, quit)
06:56:30cool_walking_err, button *macros*, not API.. that's a seperate thing.
06:56:43cool_walking_*action macros

09:20:21 Quit stewball (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
09:20:46petursome might
09:20:55peturmost should be 512MB
09:21:22peturI'll try again this noon - I modified the bootloader to print the interesting values
09:21:47amiconn512MB cards are usually <512MB
09:22:01amiconn(the old decimal vs. binary problem)
09:22:04peturyes, they are 512000000
09:22:37amiconnIirc windows even refuses to format a <512MB partition as fat32
09:22:59amiconnYou could enable fat16 support in rockbox
09:23:09peturindeed, I used gparted (under ubuntu) and it happily formatted one to FAT32 :)
09:23:58amiconnYou would also need a fat16 enabled bootloader then
09:24:31*petur hugs gui tools - no need to read tons of man pages to use cryptic commandline options
09:25:35peturamiconn: I now print [0,82,83] in the bootloader - no need to even install rockbox :)
09:25:39amiconnIn case you're experimenting with very small cards - partitions < 32MB cannot be formatted as fat32
09:25:49*GodEater finds that the latest version of rbutilqt still refuses to work for him
09:26:06peturno use in supporting such small cards - even 512MB is too small
09:26:59amiconnNot for normal operation, but you might want to use them for collecting cf identify info
09:28:27peturamiconn: did you see my table in ? already found two cards that identify as 848A
09:29:49linuxstbfat32format.exe might also be helpful -
09:30:18GodEaterassuming the cards all use a 512 byte sector size
09:30:24peturwell as I said, gparted did the job fine (nice tool btw)
09:30:49amiconnThe >=32MB limit is due to how the fat standard specifies the detection of fat12 <-> fat16 <-> fat32
09:31:52amiconnfat32 partitions *must* have at least 65525 clusters, and a cluster is at least 1 sector
09:33:28*petur is aware of large parts of the FAT spec ;)

11:04:18pondlifeDid you see my report on FlySpray?
11:04:36Nico_Pon FS #8455 ?
11:04:45pondlifeIt's definitely r16425
11:05:41pondlifeIn, why did you move the /* Update the playlist */ bit inside the auto_dir_skip test?
11:06:05pondlifei.e. if (auto_dir_skip || !automatic_skip) became if (auto_dir_skip)
11:06:17dionoeaLinusN: what's the prefered method to debug the ipod serial driver patch? Using Logf? Or is debug over USB serial usable?
11:06:55pondlifeThat's a bit of code that I still can't get my head round... so any mass of comments in there would be useful!
11:07:05LinusNdionoea: good question, i have so far used special hacks in the debug menu
11:07:35LinusNi have yet to find out how to make transmission work... :-(
11:08:31Nico_Ppondlife: because now in a manual skip, the playlist is updated in audio_skip
11:08:44pondlifeAh, ok
11:08:58pondlifeI still don't see why automatic_skip is needed.
11:09:01dionoeaLinusN: hum ok.
11:09:05pondlifeI mean, conceptually
11:09:23pondlifeA track change is a track change.
11:10:07Nico_Pmanual skips don't have the "transition window" where the codec is one track ahead of the PCM output
11:10:37pondlifeSo, the variable might be better of refactored as "in_transition_window" ?
11:11:01Nico_Pwell there are other differences, but of course it would be nice to be able to get rid of them
11:11:20amiconnLinusN: So atm only receiving works? (still sufficient for a remote afaiu)
11:11:37Nico_Pfor example the playlist index isn't updated at the same time in a manual or an automatic skip
11:11:41LinusNamiconn: correct
11:12:05LinusNamiconn: however, many ipod remotes require tx and rx
11:12:36pondlifeNico_P: All skips consist of two parts; the transition starts, then the WPS changes, no?
11:12:56Nico_Pno. in manual skips the WPS is updated before anything happens
11:13:13Nico_Psee audio_skip
11:13:39Nico_Pthis is the reason for that damn wps_offset
11:13:57pondlifeYes, but that's purely a visual thing
11:14:09Nico_Pwaiting for the track to have effectively changed before updating the WPS would make it very unresponsive
11:14:15JamPSiZagor, yea :/ too bad fat32 doesn't support >2GB files.
11:14:20rasherLinusN: might this be useful for the sansa as well, or is this not PP-related?
11:14:27pondlifeNico_P: Indeed.
11:14:30JamPSiand ext2/3 is not defragmentable in windows
11:14:43LinusNrasher: i don't know if the tx issue is pp related or not
11:14:49Nico_Ppondlife: yeah, wps_offset is mainly visual, but it's the cause of the desync that used to happen
11:14:54pondlifeI just feel that the playback logic shouldn't need to vary.
11:15:20rasherLinusN: I meant the serial driver itself. Is it strictly an Ipod thing, or part of the PP?
11:15:23Nico_PI agree on the concept. it's just that the code is so complex that in practice it has to be different
11:15:30ZagorJamPSi: stop using windows :)
11:15:33LinusNrasher: the serial driver is pp
11:15:44pondlifeI'd hope that could result in simplification ;)
11:16:27Nico_Pyeah, what I'd like to do is take a step backwards and try redesigning the whole thing
11:16:58ZagorJamPSi: on a more serious note, ext2 doesn't normally need defragmentation
11:17:10Nico_P(I said I'd *like* to do it. I didn't make any promises ;) )
11:18:21pondlifeI'd like to too...
11:18:41pondlife...but chances of a week off dedicated to hacking are slim.
11:19:06crashd__i'm getting rockbox hanging on some mp4/aac files, what's the best way to report the bug?
11:19:17Nico_Pdo you think the bug is serious enough that I should revert r16425 until I fix it?
11:19:45pondlifeBest to progress
11:19:55LinusNcrashd__: flyspray, and make sure you let the developers have a track to test with
11:20:07crashd__yeah, thought as much, cheers linus
11:20:14pondlifeDo you have any idea why this might happen? I mean, rebuffering shouldn't impact playback...
11:20:42Nico_Pno idea right now. I haven't even see the issue occur.
11:21:01pondlifeOK, well have a go - just play a long-ish album naturally
11:21:07pondlifeDon't skip or even leave the WPS
11:21:27Nico_Pcan't I skip to reach the end of the buffered part?
11:21:42Nico_Pno wonder I never saw it, I never use my player for very long these days
11:21:42pondlifeI tried that and it didn't reproduce though
11:21:48LinusNhow about lowering the size of the audio buffer?
11:21:55pondlifeGood idea
11:21:57Nico_Pyeah I guess I should try that

11:22:29pondlifeI've not done enough test runs on target

11:23:30pixelmaI found yesterday that it doesn't happen in every folder that is larger than audio buffer (well one album played fine). And it skipped as much tracks ahead in the playlist as the track count in the "view buffering thread" screen told me would be there after rebuffering
11:24:06pixelma^in the three others where it happened on my c200
11:24:17pondlifeThat's what I see on H300 target
11:24:26pondlifeA bit intermittent too
11:24:42pondlifeBut on sim, it's been remarkably consistent
11:24:50pixelmaas many too :)
11:25:16pondlifeMind you, my sim is running over a network and has very slow test_disk results; I suppose that might skew things
11:27:45Nico_PLinusN: how do I change the buffer size?

11:32:31amiconnpetur: I'm thinking about replacing the microdrive im my Mini with a CF card (16GB or more). No final decision yet
11:32:55peturand you were wondering why we were doing it....
11:32:57pondlifeNico_P: In firmware/buffer.c
11:33:27amiconnpetur: I'm still wondering. You're giving up capacity. The mini would have 4x the capacity as it has now
11:34:11amiconnI would also just slap in a microdrive if that would be available in hiogher capacities
11:34:25peturit is not about capacity, it is about future and availability, because the 50pin HDD is hard to find
11:35:05peturand for me, it is shock resistance when recording...
11:36:14Nico_Ppondlife: I was referring to the MEM #define, but I guess I'll just replace it with a value
11:36:34pondlifeI suspect MEM is in an lds somewhere
11:36:42pondlifeBut I just set that to 5MB
11:37:17pondlifeSorry, 4MB
11:40:20LinusNpondlife: try adjusting MEMORYSIZE in the generated makefile
11:41:29pondlifeProblem is, setting MEM to <= 8 might change the behaviour of buffering..

14:27:36LambdaCalculus37LinusN: Ping!
14:27:51BHXsure, when i try and update the database it manages to get a certain point (usually around 1500 files) and then stops. There is still disk activity but nothing happens. I've tried leaving it for ages but it's still frozen. Also, I can see the mp3s in the File viewer but when I try to play them from there, it'll say that there is no file in the WPS.
14:38:19LinusNLambdaCalculus37: pong
14:39:40LambdaCalculus37LinusN: Question for you: a buddy of mine has Rockbox running on his iriver H120. He called me last night saying that he's getting an "ATA -32 error" now, and Rockbox won't boot. Any advice?
14:39:54LambdaCalculus37LinusN: Llorean had told me earlier you were the man to ask about this.
14:40:09LinusNdid he by any chance use it in a damp environment?
14:40:57LambdaCalculus37LinusN: It was raining this week in New York, so that may be a possibility. But he keeps his iriver in a leather keep case at all times.
14:41:28LambdaCalculus37Actually, he does take it in with him to the gym all the time.
14:41:51LinusNanyway, he might be able to run the original firmware
14:42:07 Join nicktastic [0] (n=nick@unaffiliated/nicktastic)
14:42:29LinusNrockbox has a very rigid test that exercises the ATA registers, and the -32 means that the register test fails
14:42:51LinusNit turns out that the ata often works just fine even when that test fails
14:43:12LinusNso he might be able to flash a new bootloader without the register test
14:44:24LambdaCalculus37LinusN: I was thinking of flashing Bootloader v7-pre4 to his iriver so that he can have Rockbox running permanently in flash.
14:44:32dionoeaBHX: i don't know anything about the database but other people here might. Sorry.
14:44:46LinusNLambdaCalculus37: i believe that also has the register test
14:45:08BHXdionoea: Thanks anyway :)
14:45:52bluebrotherBHX: maybe a file has a broken tag and crashed the database.
14:46:17***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
14:46:31bluebrotheryou could check the database screen in the debug menu and check if it's stopping at the same file all the time. If yes, try to remove that file temporarily and check if it helps
14:46:38LambdaCalculus37LinusN: One other thing that I had mentioned to Llorean (and you can see this in the logs) is that he was complaining that his filesystem was not measuring his free disk space properly; under Windows it shows 7.1GB free, but under Rockbox, it shows a jumble of random characters.
14:46:52BHXbluebrother: I'll try that now, thanks
14:47:04LinusNLambdaCalculus37: that's interesting
14:47:08LambdaCalculus37I thought at first that his hard drive may have been failing.

15:00:50gevaertsJamPSi: another problem is that there seems to be a bug in the flash driver on sansa that only shows when using USB (especially at high speed). This causes occasional data corruption on write.
15:02:43gevaertsJamPSi: third issue is vista and mac osx support. It might work, or it might not, and if it doesn't the problems might be caused by the signal quality issues I mentionned. I didn't get reports on this since my latest SCSI fixes from last night

16:42:15gevaertsIs there a way to force a struct to be packed, two-byte aligned (so the shorts inside work properly) without having sizeof() round up ?

16:45:04 Quit corevette ("Leaving")
16:45:31gevaertsThey now have __attribute__ ((packed,aligned(2)));, and this makes sizeof() return 10 for what is actually a 9-byte struct
16:46:05Domonokyif you force a struct to be xxx-aligned, the size of it will go up, because there are empty spaces in the struct.. so not much you can do... (only reordering the struct can help)
16:46:19***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
16:46:39amiconnThe struct is packed internally. It's just padded at the end
16:46:55amiconnAnd gcc spmetimes *is* nasty
16:47:21gevaertsDomonoky: the USB structs (where I have the problem) are aligned properly ( I guess the spec writers thought of this issue), but if I don't ask gcc tho align them it places them (sometimes) at odd addresses.
16:48:25amiconnWell, you could use the 'unaligned' attribute instead of aligning them, but that increases code size and decreases performance

18:02:11DA-Laptopthe guy I bought it from on ebay didn't send a charger

18:03:05DA-LaptopI thought maybe it could run on USB power.

18:55:55kkurbjunnot the patch

18:56:47kkurbjunyeah, if you can get an exact account of all settings that could be helpful in reproducing the problem
18:57:09kkurbjunalso the default.dfg file
18:57:47kkurbjunsettings in doom that is
18:57:59kkurbjunI'm not too concerned about the other settings in rockbox
18:58:30kkurbjunthe flash booting would completely replace the linux loader
18:59:05kkurbjunbut it can also make it easier to use the existing linux loader
18:59:21kkurbjunI should say it does currently replace the linux loader completely now
18:59:26kkurbjunrather than will
18:59:39Beta2KStill in testing I assume?
19:00:42kkurbjunyes, right now it's using quite a bit of power when the gigabeat is shutdown, so some of the hardware is still not being setup right - some special hardware is needed in case there are problems since a bad flash will brick the gigabeat without it
19:01:24Beta2KWill any JTAG interface work, or does the Gigabeat require something special?

21:03:16gevaertscodesquid: ok, so it's still not fixed. This was with r16457 ?
21:03:59gevaertsCan you try doing a logf build and enabling logf for usb_storage.c ?
21:05:01gevaertscodesquid: also, do you have a USB hub available ? It might change the behaviour
21:05:06codesquidsure, if you explain me how to do that
21:05:11codesquidsorry, don't have an USB hub
21:06:42gevaertscodesquid: when running tools/configure, choose (A)dvanced, then (L)ogf (press enter twice there), and then edit firmware/usbstack/usb_storage.c to remove the comment markers before #define LOGF_ENABLE (so the define is used)
21:07:06gevaertscodesquid: You'll need to run make clean I guess
21:07:29fyrestormfor ipod vid :D
21:08:03codesquidgevaerts, it's compiling
21:08:13gevaertsAfter that, you'll get two extra items in the debug menu, logf and logf_dump. Choose logf_dump after trying the connection. This will dump the output to .rockbox/logf.txt

21:26:01fyrestormso i guess the same applies to the vmware package
21:26:12BigBambifaemir: Was the id3 question separate? As ogg should have vorbis comments
21:26:21faemirit's seperate
21:26:38BigBambiYes, I think there is a limit on length of tag
21:26:51faemirWell it fits in the tag on my pc
21:27:02BigBambiBut I can't remember what it is off the top of my head - try searching the forum, it has come up there
21:27:14faemirI might just shorten the album name :P
21:27:32BigBambiIt is for certain codec(s) only, and due to the why rockbox parses the tag
21:27:55faemirThe tag for album is: Good Apollo I'm Burning Star IV, Vol.1: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness
21:28:03faemirThat too long you think? XD
21:28:11BigBambiIt is the overall length I think that metters

21:30:52faemirI had some problems with rockbox crashing before so I returned to normal ipod, but gave it another chance yesterday, and no crashes, so I'm going to put it back on to drag and drop :)
21:31:00codesquidgevaerts, this time OS X didn't crash

21:31:10codesquidgevaerts, first attempt
21:31:16BigBambifaemir: You may have multiple copies there in a recycle bin for instance - easiest way to check is to put two into a playlist, then view the playlist to see if it is the same filename

21:31:46codesquidgevaerts, several more attempts. No crash but no volumes either.
21:31:53BigBambiIf not, then you can try rebuilding the database. To make sure you really start from scratch, delete *.tcd for the .rockbox folder
21:32:00BigBambifaemir: That is what the manual is for
21:32:03faemirBigBambi: also, when did the thing come in where you hold menu and it comes up with options for shuffle repeat etc?
21:32:11BigBambiAlways been there
21:32:18BigBambiThat is the quick menu
21:32:22faemirWell I found it yesterday and it's awesome.

21:32:26faemirCan you customise it?
21:32:36BigBambiCheck out the context menu too
21:32:40faemirYeh I looked at the manual before, and didn't notice it =/
21:32:44gevaertsmajor_works: that one is entirely commited to svn, so you don't need a patch to get the latest work currently
21:32:45BigBambifaemir: Not without editing the code

21:41:40desowinhmm, on sansa e200 rockbox could disable audio output when there's no song playing, that seems to save from ugly hisses/voices while browsing menus. and it's the way OF does it, when there's no song playing they disable the audiohw so there's no hiss.

22:16:42gevaertsamiconn: there's one while() loop in usb_init_device(), waiting for something to change in 0x70000028. Maybe that doesn't happen without DEV_USB0 ?

22:20:03gevaertsWhy does the mini 2nd gen have such a large delta over the last two revisions ?
22:23:51amiconnThe 2K aligned struct is obviously still there
22:24:36 Quit devurandom (Remote closed the connection)
22:24:53gevaertsSo that one probably moves a bit. It can't go unfortunately. the hardware wants it that way
22:24:55amiconnA small size change of what's before that in RAM can make that struct jump up/down in 2K steps, depending on how it is located
22:25:43amiconnWe can put that struct at the end of maim RAM via the linker script. Then it will always be aligned and won't jump around

22:26:48gevaertsIf the only thing it buys us is a bit less clutter on the delta page, I don't think it's worth it

22:28:28amiconnIt would also avoid wasting an average 1K RAM. Actual waste varies with build (0...(2K-1) bytes)
22:30:12gevaertsCan't the linker optimize that kind of thing ?
22:30:47*gevaerts goes to solve the bin-packing problem in O(n)
22:32:08amiconnIt obviously can't
22:33:55preglowi say we should stay out of linker scripts if we can
22:34:01preglowkiss, remember
22:34:19*gevaerts agrees

22:34:46amiconnWell, pinning that one buffer to a fixed address isn't overly complex, imho
22:35:10amiconnBut that can wait until the usb stack is stable

22:35:59pondlifepixelma: Don't suppose you tested my latter patch? FYI, I've put it on now (in two halves).
22:36:45amiconnEither it's just a coincidence, or I actually made those darn reset happen less often
22:36:56low_lightgevaerts: here's the init & reset sequence from c200 bootloader:
22:37:17pixelmapondlife: I did - see logs at 19:03
22:37:55desowinis it possible to enable/disable audiohw without hearing beep in headphones?
22:37:57pondlifeAha, I feared as much
22:38:22faemirIs the rbutil install themes option broken for everyone or just me?
22:38:31pondlifeStill, it means I know what's wrong - just need to find the correct logic
22:38:59amiconnOne single 'event 51' in the windows system log instead of a dozen (connected to hub), and *no* reset in linux dmesg so far (front port)
22:39:56desowinI tried to implement my idea of disabling/enabling audiohw when playing or not and it turned out in one really ugly beep on disable/enable of hw
22:39:59Domonoky_faemir: what doesnt work ?
22:40:00gevaertsamiconn: can you compare to what low_light just pasted ?
22:40:39*gevaerts hopes that it will be the same, so we won't have to #ifdef-ify that as well
22:40:40pondlife(for the logs) Nico_P: The problem seems to be caused by last_peek_offset being updated too early on natural track changes.
22:41:09faemirDomonoky_: it says it can't find any themes
22:41:22Domonoky_faemir: which device ?
22:41:30faemiripod video 30gb
22:41:33*gevaerts has to go for some hours now. I'll be back later
22:41:36amiconnLooks similar, but not identical
22:41:43pixelmaDomonoky_, faemir: I think it's the Ipod Video's downloads where taken down from the download server due too bandwidth problems
22:41:44amiconnApple diskmode even does a bit more
22:41:56amiconnIt does not touch 0x70000028 bit 1 though

22:42:38gevaertsAnyway I'll test this later.
22:42:40amiconnAh, now I see why I didn't get a reset: no high speed! :\

22:52:07ryranhey guys. any of the devs following Gevaerts usb work know if he's aware that some time in the last few days non-computer usb power has been broken a bit? plugging my 5g ipod into a car or wall charger with the latest build (r16458) causes RB to reboot into emergency disk mode. holding down Menu prevents that; however then playback is _stopped_ (but can be restarted).
