00:00:54 Quit gevaerts ("sleeping time")
00:02:04peturbah, I was one word wrong, the 1gb sandisk doesn't comply
00:03:44amiconnOur 'force pio mode' setting checks a rather arbitrary bit...
00:03:53amiconnIt's doing so for years though
00:04:11amiconn4 years to be precise
00:05:10peturall these feature bits are 'not to be depended on'
00:05:25peturso what do we use.... lousy spec
00:06:24 Quit jgarvey ("Leaving")
00:06:29amiconnAccording to the ata specs those words are valid if the indicator bits are set approrpiately
00:06:46peturfor pio modes we should look at word 64
00:07:04amiconnWord 64 lists the modes, but not whether modes can be set
00:07:27petur'Word 64: Advanced PIO transfer modes supported'
00:07:32amiconnModes can always be set, hence there is no indicator bit for that, and Linus used a bit that's (nearly) guaranteed to be 1
00:10:07peturso we should check the indicator bits before usin g words 82-84
00:11:02amiconnPerhaps. But that a-data card does indicate words 82..84 as valid

00:11:29amiconnWords 85..87 are indicated as invalid though
00:12:23peturmaybe nobody bothers to use advanced powermanagement...

00:12:59*petur is doing a battery benchmark on his H10 with and without to see the difference
00:13:45amiconnH10 is probably a bad target for that test
00:14:02amiconnThose microdrive do at least partially implement the cf standard
00:14:26amiconnAnd on cf apm probably doesn't matter because cf power management is pretty much automatic
00:14:27peturI am testing the patch that disables powermanagement for CF
00:14:48peturso I want to know if this influences H10
00:15:04peturbecause the microdrive reports as CF
00:15:07amiconnIt could also influence the mini, or the mrobe100, you never know
00:15:30amiconnNo, it doesn't
00:15:57peturstill need a nano owner to test the modified soft_reset
00:16:06amiconnThe CF signature is word 0 == 0x848A according to the standard
00:16:25amiconnAnd the H10's drive reports 0x0C5A
00:16:47peturI mean the new check which looks at the sector count

00:17:38peturwhy do you think I bother trying and testing stuff?
00:18:07amiconnAt least in the form of checking words which aren't actually related to the problematic features
00:18:58amiconnBtw, all the CF cards in the list either report to support the CFA feature set (word 83 bit 2), or have an invalid word 83
00:19:15amiconnThat also applies to the darn microdrives though

00:48:22peturwhy doesn't features[] use a bitmask iso a bitnumber
00:52:33amiconnRight now one array element is 4 bytes, i.e. a power of 2
00:52:59peturI mean use 0x08 and not 3
00:53:05amiconnIf you relace the bit number (char) with a mask (necessarily unsigned short), it becomes 5 bytes
00:53:27 Quit spiorf (Remote closed the connection)
00:53:33amiconnAnd since that's not a power of 5, addressing array elements needs more code
00:53:38peturwould have been easier to check the validate bits at the same time
00:53:40amiconnEhh, a power of 2

00:56:18amiconnpetur: What about using the validity bits for these feature *settings* (i.e. word 87 bits 15 and 14) for deciding whether to refrain from setting apm?
00:56:51*petur checks those values for hdd
00:57:15amiconnThe hdds all have valid word 87

00:57:48*amiconn wants more values
00:58:29amiconnI only have one single CF card - an 1GB Sandisk Ultra II
00:59:17peturwhat about all those dumps in the wiki?
00:59:24amiconnHmm, the Sandisk Ultra II 2GB in the list indicates word 87 as valid
01:00:09petursame as my sandisk 1GB
01:00:13amiconnThose are about a dozen cards and harddisks. Also, for most of them the "pwrmgt fails" column just says "?"
01:01:18 Join japc [0] (
01:02:31peturI wonder if the description of bit 3 of word 85 is a typo: talks about 'supported', not 'enabled'
01:03:24amiconnI am wondering the same, although ata-4, ata-5 and ata-7 all say "supported"
01:03:26peturthose hdd dumps were taken after the set_features was executed :/
01:03:38amiconnYes of course
01:03:57peturalso, word 85 is 0 for those sandisk cards...
01:04:21amiconnThe bootloader already does that (how else would it load rockbox to do the dump?)
01:04:29*petur looks for a bit that must be set
01:05:02*amiconn curses thread.c, especially sleep_core()
01:06:01amiconnThat function is one big FOREVER loop - and putting my alignment-changing 'nop's in there causes gcc to shuffle instructions all over
01:09:27*petur gives transcend x133 2GB a strange look. word 85 = 1 (supports smart???)
01:09:28amiconnSo all I could find out is that the alignment problem is within that function, because correcting the alignment before this call makes it work, and after that call it fails (sleep_core() is inlined within switch_thread())
01:09:58amiconnpetur: It doesn't. Word 85 isn't valid according to word 87
01:10:36peturhmmm my cf spec says nothing about word 87 :(
01:10:50peturoh it does

01:15:13Jessica464Hey folks. Anyone still have an old Archos Jukebox?
01:16:03 Join cool_walking_ [0] (
01:16:31pixelmasome do, just ask your actual question and see (have a bit patience too)
01:17:17Jessica464I dropped 2500mAh niMH in my jukebox, but the battery life is like 25% what it used to be? any clues? The battery change happened at the same time i installed rockbox.
01:17:48Jessica464i figured with 2500mAh the thing would run foreever
01:18:23Jessica464Also, anyone replaced the 20GB HD with a newer 160GB? any issues doing so?
01:19:17Jessica464thx for the tip, pix. Unfortunately, I catch my flight for Shenzhen in a few hours. At the mo, it seems like it is gonna be a silent flight.
01:20:32amiconnDid you try charging the batteries in an external charger and check runtime?
01:20:51pixelmaalso those high capacity cells often suffer from high self discharge (there is a new generation out there that doesn't)
01:20:57amiconnAlso, what jukebox is that, Player/Studio or Recorder?
01:20:58Jessica464doing that now, but I don't know if they'll fully cook b4 i need to leave.
01:21:36scorche|shJessica464: i have replaced it with a 160, but keep in mind that unless you enable LBA48 support, you will only get 128/137 GiB/GB
01:21:39amiconnCould be that our charging algorithm doesn't fully charge the batteries. What rockbox build are you running?
01:22:10Jessica464hmmm... not sure on the build. lemme check

01:26:23amiconnUmm, that's old.... although, it's at least not the 2.5 release from the rockbox stone age
01:26:34Jessica464are niMH ok, or should I be using nicad?
01:26:51amiconnRegarding the high self-discharge rate of high capacity NiMH - I'd recommend everyone to use the new generation cells instead. They are "only" avaliable as 2100mAh cells (Sanyo: 2000mAh), but lengths better than ordinary high capacity cells
01:26:52jhMikeSamiconn: yez
01:27:01scorche|shJessica464: NiMH only
01:27:25Jessica464ok scor

01:28:09 Part toffe82
01:28:34amiconnDirectly after charging?
01:28:39scorche|shthat definitely seems off if they are brand new...can you get longer runtimes by putting in your old betteries?
01:29:05Jessica464amicon, yes
01:29:22Jessica464scor: they were new when i put them in the archos
01:29:32Jessica464i had to recycle the old ones
01:30:33scorche|shJessica464: well, it *could* be other things as well, but testing different batteries is the easiest thing to check
01:30:54Jessica464yeah, shame i have only a couple of hours...
01:31:04Jessica464and no other batteries!
01:32:22*jhMikeS read what amiconn said and experiences a 'wtf' moment
01:33:01amiconnjhMikeS: Regarding what part?
01:33:17scorche|shthe charging algorithym?
01:33:28peturJessica464: get some non-rechargeables at the airport?
01:33:49scorche|shJessica464: and if you get non-rechargables, make sure not to accidently charge them ;)
01:33:55jhMikeSamiconn: putting nops in sleep_core having the effect you reported. I think at first commit the function was in IRAM.
01:33:57Jessica464pet: like alcaline?
01:33:57pixelmathat could be dangerous if one then inserts a charger...
01:33:59peturscorche|sh: the threading problem
01:34:37saratogajhMikeS: someone suggested you knew something about why the backlight might be very slow to active lately?
01:34:38amiconnI tracked down the location where the PP5002 obviously originates, but unfortunately it's not very precise, because I cannot put nops *into* sleep_core() without making gcc shuffling instructions all around
01:35:11amiconnBut why does *code* alignment have an effect at all? And why there?
01:35:41amiconnpetur, Jessica464: Alkalines shouldn't be used in the archos
01:36:07jhMikeSsaratoga: it's the priority and a side effect of actually fixing the scheduling. I'd suggest just making it a normal UI prority thread for the time being.
01:36:12Jessica464ami, then what non-rechareables should I use?
01:36:37peturJessica464: seems I gave wrong advice then...
01:36:48amiconnJessica464: None. The archos jukeboxes are designed to run from NiMH. Other batteries will either work poorly, or not at all
01:36:58saratogajhMikeS: how are thread priorities adjusted? I'd like to play with this a bit
01:37:15Jessica464ok. so it's rechargeables or nuthin
01:37:49Jessica464anyone know what voltage and current I should be charging the archos with?
01:37:55scorche|shamiconn: i would think lithium would sate the power demands just fine, no?
01:38:03jhMikeSamiconn: that's weird. Now that you found that I'm brainstorming for an answer on that.
01:38:05amiconnMost probably not
01:38:22scorche|shwhy not?
01:38:41jhMikeSsaratoga: the create_thread call in backlight.c inside IF_PRIO()
01:38:50amiconnscorche: The circuitry is designed for the typical openloop voltage of NiMH cells, i.e. 4x 1.2V. Non-rechargeables start at 1.5V
01:39:07jhMikeSsaratoga: use PRIORITY_USER_INTERFACE
01:39:13amiconnAnd the jukeboxes need cells with a very low impedance, because of the high hdd spinup current
01:39:39scorche|shyes...the lithium should be fine with regards to impedance
01:39:55saratogajhMikeS: instead of "PRIORITY_SYSTEM"?
01:40:16jhMikeSsaratoga: yes
01:40:22Jessica464lithium wont charge properly in a device designed to charge nimh, will it?
01:40:37scorche|shJessica464: no...i am talking just about usage
01:40:57saratogaputting lithium in anything but a lithium charger will probably result in an on fire battery
01:41:30Jessica464so, for niMH in an archos rockbox, what voltage and current should I charge it at?
01:44:03 Join csc`` [0] (n=csc@archlinux/user/csc)
01:44:13saratogajhMikeS: that fix seems to have worked fairly well
01:44:14amiconnWhen charging them in the device, you should either use the original charger (9V unregulated), or a *regulated* 12V charger. Less won't fully charge the batteries, more will produce unnecessary heat and eventually break the charging circuit
01:44:15*jhMikeS has to get this priority inheritance done and it's the hardest piece and most time-consuming of programming undertaken yet but what's done works extremely well (and as a bonus alot of kernel stuff is more simple)
01:44:22saratogatakes about half a second to come on now
01:44:28saratogainstead of the 2-5 seconds before
01:44:45amiconnIf you charge them externally, use a proper NiMH charger
01:45:47Jessica464ami, but at what current?
01:45:54jhMikeSsaratoga: with the changes I've made (somewhat of a 2nd-pass rewrite), even at PRIORITY_SYSTEM, the backlight delay is hardly perceivable :)

01:46:48*amiconn managed to track down the crash location a bit further
01:46:50amiconnjhMikeS: The problem must be somewhere between start of sleep_core(), and the core_sleep() call (line 1466)
01:47:08amiconncore_sleep() is asm, so I could sneak in 2 extra nops without gcc going wild
01:48:41saratogajhMikeS: these are going to be committed relatively soon?
01:48:58saratogai'm wondering if its worth working around this issue in SVN in the meantime
01:49:33amiconnThere are 55 instrucitons between the 2 known points
01:49:56jhMikeSsaratoga: I'd just commit it. Really I think all UI-based threads should be equal since they're expected to response well to input.
01:50:08saratogaok will do
01:50:34jhMikeSamiconn: you put nops both at the start and the end?
01:51:16jhMikeSthat code didn't even exist for PP5002 at the initial commit though. that only came with finishing dual-core support there and the same problem creeps in even if it's the C reference version.
01:52:04amiconnI first tested the effect of a varying number of nops in main(). With my current build, 0 or 3 nops work fine, 1 or 2 nops make it crash. The effects are modulo-4
01:52:38amiconnThen I put 4 nops into main() - everything ok. Then I started moving 2 of the 4 nops around the code.
01:52:43Jessica464ami: do you know the current i should be charging this thing at?
01:53:21amiconnIf I moved them too far to the end, it was crashing, moved them back to the beginning, worked again etc (bisecting)
01:53:37amiconnJessica464: The current will be determined by the device.
01:53:55amiconnYOur charger should be capable of providing at least 400mA
01:54:12amiconnAll this must be somewhere in the wiki
01:54:28Jessica464err... i no longer have the original charger, and there is no spec on the archos itself.
01:55:16amiconnjhMikeS: I finally found that putting the nops *directly* before the sleep_core() call in switch_thread(), it works, and if I put them directly after that call, it crashes
01:55:24amiconn(sleep_core() is inlined)
01:55:30Jessica464is there a wiki for the archos?
01:56:11amiconnAnd the tiny bit further I got is that if I put the nops into core_sleep() it still crashes, so the problem must be before that

02:48:02amiconnYes, but the cop also crashes if it's not aligned properly
02:48:38amiconnIt alost seems there's something in the deisgn of the PP5002 that makes it transfer values from cpu_control to the PC
02:48:51amiconnI'fe seen crash addresses of 0xCF004084 several times now...
02:49:53*amiconn wonders whether the addressing mode using the shifter is involved
02:50:08amiconnBut I need to stop experimenting for now and get some sleep
02:50:34jhMikeSthe writes to the control register after the first DC commit didn't use that for pp5002

05:12:50major_worksIs there a knowledgeable person on who could look at this and help me understand why it's causing a make to fail?
05:18:22XavierGrmake sure to: have the latest source and update your repository, make clean, reconfigure
05:18:49XavierGror even make veryclean
05:18:59major_worksIt was the latest source. There are patches applied, however.
05:19:16JdGordonsvn up
05:19:23JdGordonlooks like your not latest

05:20:06major_worksOh yeah, I did have to hand-patch some stuff. Multifont for one; viewports for another. Both are out of sync at this point.
05:20:39major_worksBut it was a fairly straightforward hand patch, which is good, because I am not a coder by any stretch.
05:21:24XavierGrthen type svn diff | patch -R to remove all differences and then svn up as JdGordon said

07:49:19LloreanOkay, in the last couple of days we've had about a half dozen reported data aborts on myriad PP targets on flyspray.
07:49:44JdGordonyeah, something has gone to shits!

07:50:38 Nick JdGordon|afk is now known as JdGordon (n=jonno@rockbox/developer/JdGordon)
07:50:41LloreanAnd the addresses look fairly random to me. At least, they cover a wide range
07:53:15JdGordonactually, I got a data abort yesterday also, but that was my first in _ages_ and it hasnt happened since
07:54:15LinusN"hyperdrive"... haha

07:55:10gideanhi everyone....
07:55:17LinusNthat was a funny response, though i feel that we might have to be a little more polite when it comes to silly requests
07:55:27LinusNgidean: hi
07:55:34LloreanLinusN: I'm curious where, now.
07:55:38gideanjust got a gigabeat f10 and installed rockbox...looks really good...
07:56:03LinusNLlorean: the feature request tracker, "USB audio"
07:56:03gideanthen I erased something and now it gives me an error: no system found on HDD :(
07:56:10gideanany suggestions?
07:56:25krazykitgidean, read the wiki for the recovery instructions for gigabeat
07:56:42gideanthanks krazykit!
07:56:47JdGordonLinusN: well even his suggestion was nonsence.. "maybe in the far future... "!
07:56:57LloreanAh, closed before it got to my RSS reader.
07:57:17LinusNJdGordon: sure it was nonsense, but meybe he didn't realize that himself
07:58:12LloreanActually, for SWUSB targets it's not terribly nonsense, but the request itself was kinda... not requesty. I think we actually may have an outstanding request for that anyway.
07:58:25*LinusN makes note to self, "it's spelled MAYBE"
07:58:45gideanOne more Q: I don't have the disk... can I find GBSYSTEM?
07:58:59*Llorean wants his SWUSB targets to all serve as USB displays for Windows Sideshow.
07:59:12gideanusing linux BTW
07:59:35krazykitgidean, you might be able to use the blank gbsystem files linked immediately above that section.
07:59:57LloreanBut seriously, a mini-computer with input, display, audio output, and storage, with a fully under our control USB connection is kinda a flexible doodad.
08:00:22LinusNJdGordon, Llorean: still i think it would even be better to say "your request is ridiculous, because..." instead of just making fun of him
08:01:01LinusNespecially since it actually might be feasible on some targets
08:01:12LloreanLinusN: Agreed entirely
08:02:11LloreanOr perhaps "Rockbox is an audio player firmware, and this feature doesn't really serve that purpose, as it's bypassing Rockbox entirely, so while technically possible, probably isn't suitable for the core"
08:03:36LloreanOn a note unrelated entirely, does anyone know if we've any documented knowledge on 2G Nanos?
08:04:39JdGordonyou guys are no fun :p but yeah ok, i agree
08:04:51*gidean sighs.
08:05:02gideanno dice, krazykit...
08:05:07LloreanThey work
08:05:16LloreanYou don't need any original toshiba files

11:56:19gevaertsI guess that if we have support for petur's keyboard, joypads and similar are basically free (both are HID)
11:56:20pixelmaLinusN: amiconn once found 8GB MMCs (microdia) which could only be bought in a large amount... not sure what happened to this ;)
11:56:41peturyes, and HID is a very simple class
11:57:39gevaertsI still want to add it to the device-stack, to replace the charging-only class (pretend we're a mouse or something, so windows finds drivers).
11:58:17gevaertsAnd then I have my sansa c200 joypad ;)
11:59:19linuxstbWhat about pretending to be a removable drive, but with no media?
11:59:40peturthat would be cleaner
11:59:52gevaertsThat would be even easier (10 minutes work), but it might confuse users
12:00:15peturand coming up as a mouse wouldn't?
12:00:18 Quit MethoS- (Remote closed the connection)
12:00:26linuxstbYou could even press a button to "insert" your disk whilst charging.
12:01:56gevaertspetur: I think windows shows the device name on insert, and not the class name (or only the first time, for a very short time) so users only see this "mouse" when they go to the device manager.
12:02:38gevaertslinuxstb: possible as well. Once we do that I would also suggest to go back to "normal mode" once the OS "ejects" the disk
12:02:52pondlifeWhy not keep it as "charging only" when we are just charging? Seems less confusing.
12:03:17gevaertspondlife: trouble is that windows then asks for drivers.
12:03:25pondlifeAh, I see
12:03:39pondlifeIt has no built-in support for that?
12:03:50pondlifeWhat does the OF do?
12:04:07linuxstbIsn't this what the ipod OF does? IIRC, you can "eject" it from the host OS, and it will leave the disk mode screen, but continue to charge.
12:04:18gevaertsI would personally prefer linuxstb's solution, but I'm afraid of confused users
12:05:01gevaertspondlife: we basically need a device class that does nothing, but nobody specified one. And most OF's don't do harging only as far as I know
12:05:21 Join ali_as [0] (
12:05:22pondlifeOK, well I'd do what the iPod OF does then.
12:08:01gevaertsSo the proposal is : on normal insert, present all drives normally and show the USB connection screen. Once the host tells us it doesn't need them any more, go back to normal operation. On "charging" insert, present empty drives, and put a menu item in System (or somewhere else?) to "insert" them, which goes to the USB screen and allows OS access. Also allow this after OS eject.
12:08:13*gevaerts thinks that shouldn't be too complicated
12:08:51gevaertsAnd people who can't find this "pretend to insert" menu can just unplug and plug back in
12:10:23*gevaerts likes this idea. It gets rid of the "charging only" pseudo-driver, and adds useful functionality.
12:10:29linuxstbI'm not sure we need a menu option though - unless it's very easily accessible, it will just be easier to unplug and reattach.
12:11:19pondlifeI'd still like an option to invert the charge/connect option...
12:11:34pondlifei.e. normally charge only, and be a drive if a button is held.
12:11:37linuxstbIf you attach normally, then the host OS ejects the device and Rockbox goes back to normal operation, can we then return to disk mode?
12:12:14linuxstbpondlife: I wouldn't object - it's been a long-time feature request by many people.
12:12:21gevaertslinuxstb: that's what we need this menu option for.
12:12:37linuxstbgevaerts: So it's possible to keep connecting and disconnecting by software?
12:13:55gevaertslinuxstb: not really connecting and disconnecting, although that should be possible as well, just telling the OS that the user took the (insert removable media type of your choice here) out or put it back in
12:14:47linuxstbAh yes, of course...
12:14:47gevaertsIt would also neatly solve this "should we set the REMOVABLE bit or not" discussion
12:16:52gevaertss/neatly solve/sidestep/
12:17:41linuxstbWhat about adding the "disk mode" option at the end of the main menu? It will only appear when charging via usb.
12:18:10linuxstbIt sort of fits, as it will take you to the USB screen.
12:18:11pondlifeI don't like options that appear and hide..
12:18:31pondlifeI was more just thinking of a setting
12:18:41linuxstbBut it's not a setting...
12:18:54pondlifeAh, I misunderstood
12:18:57linuxstbIt's a "now take me to the usb screen" item
12:19:36linuxstbMy fault for saying "disk mode option"...

12:21:47gevaertsDefault connect would be an option in the settings menu, in the future maybe together with the "enable usb audio" and "pretend we're a game controller" options
12:22:45gevaertspondlife: forced exit would be possible, but dangerous for your data. I thinl it's better to exit only if the OS tells us to (by the user choosing "eject")
12:23:23pondlifeTail, meet dog.
12:24:35gevaertsIf we really want to, we could eject/insert devices on a multi-volume system separately, so you can continue playing music from your sd card while updating the rockbox build on internal storage. That would almost certainly be overkill though
12:25:10Crash91What colour scheme is preferable for the front page? The current one, or a more cabbie-ish approach?
12:25:49pondlifeCrash91: I'd say the cabbie-ish one, for consistency. But I may be in the minority.
12:25:59pondlifeNot quite so dark though
12:26:26pondlifeI don't actually use cabbie myself, prefering light backgrounds.
12:26:35Crash91how about a slightly more lighter version, in grey or blue-grey
12:26:45gevaertsI would say cabbie-ish as well, for the same reason. I don't really like white-on-black websites though

12:28:41GodEaterI'm going on a hen night this weekend. Should be, erm, interesting ;)
12:28:51GodEaterso, where are the photos ?
12:29:09pondlifestripwax took some with his phone, but it was rather dark
12:29:17pondlifeWe managed 2 Towers
12:29:20GodEatercan't wait
12:29:22linuxstbGodEater: We were relying on your camera...
12:29:35pondlifeOr rather a Henge and a Tower.. and a Staircase
12:29:58linuxstbWe had too many rounded corners for a decent tower though...
12:30:10*gevaerts thinks of a new slogan "Rockbox - the firmware that all RockStairs use"
12:30:17GodEatersorry :(
12:30:21linuxstbGodEater: np ;)
12:30:40*pondlife proposed that RockboxPlayer should have a Lego-style body, for ease of Tower building
12:30:53gevaertsThat would be cheating !
12:30:57linuxstbWasn't google built from lego?
12:31:00GodEaterbut innovative...
12:31:12*GodEater likes that idea and seconds it heartily
12:31:18pondlifeYou want to fit a bigger drive in. just add more bricks

12:44:40*Crash91 goes to take a look
12:44:53GodEaterfairly descriptive to be honest
12:45:06LinusNso i think Paul was a little too sensitive there
12:45:23GodEaterI think I'd be more inclined to let blind / foreign people start to complain about words they've not understood
12:45:29GodEaterbefore jumping in and asking people not to use them
12:45:36LinusNmy thinking as well
12:45:37Crash91linuxstb: I like it look, but it takes up more space
12:45:43GodEaterI've never actually seen anyone pipe up and say "what does such-and-such mean?"
12:46:06linuxstbCrash91: Yes, but IMO it makes good use of space - i.e. the user is drawn to it immediately.
12:46:26gevaertsMaybe, but still he explained, and then went on to give a useful answer, so I don't see any reason for Neon John to reply like he did
12:46:33LinusNi'd like to keep the policing down a little to keep the friendliness up
12:46:42Crash91linuxstb: ok, ill probably go with that
12:47:33LinusNgevaerts: sure, the "f*ck yourself" was out of line, but for some reason i kind of understand john's reaction
12:48:59LinusNi think he would have felt otherwise if the complaint would have come *after* the useful response
12:49:23Zagorneon john has, um, let's call it "personality" :-)
12:49:29LinusNoh yes
12:50:44LinusNstill, i don't want the rockbox community to be perceived as unfriendly or unwelcoming
12:52:12LinusNi seriously think we need to keep our tone down a little, and that goes for all our channels, including the tracker and the forum

12:52:33*linuxstb agrees too
12:52:34pixelmaI don't read Llorean's suggestion to use real words as unfriendly though, but then it seems I'm quite diplomatic...
12:53:15GodEaterLinusN: I've personally found since we've added a few more "Experts" to the forums recently that my blood pressure when dealing with the unwashed masses has gone down considerably. I think we should get a few more promoted to spread the load still more.
12:53:19LinusNabsolutely not unfriendly, but i would call it nitpicking
12:53:21BigBambiI agree too :)
12:53:23GodEaterhopefully this should help out everyone else too
12:53:43linuxstbMaybe we just need to be more tolerant of things like "unreal words"... As long as the majority of people write reasonable English, that sets the tone and I would expect most people to follow it.
12:53:54BigBambiI agree
12:54:20BigBambiThe difficulty comes when you do need to say something, then you get a load of crap abouyt well this person said this, etc....
12:54:50LinusNbesides, words like "thx" and "lol" etc, are pretty much established nowadays
12:55:04BigBambiBut (speaking for the forums for a minute) I/(we) can be too quick to just enforce rules to the detriment of anything else
12:55:06linuxstbBut there are some incomprehensible posts to the forums occasionally...
12:55:14pixelmaI mean you could read Noen John's made up words as unfriendly too (towards Ipod users etc...)
12:56:04pixelmaif I "understand" them correctly
12:56:35BigBambipixelma: You do, and I can see an Apple fan being 'insulted'
12:56:50linuxstbAnd all ebay users IIUC...
12:56:53BigBambiTrouble is, intonation is so hard not face to face and just in text
12:56:58LinusNpixelma: sure, but if a ipod user feels insulted by that, he is the one that needs help
12:57:15gevaertsI think it's reasonable that he replied, as Llorean might indeed have been a bit too trigger happy, but in my mind that never can excuse his language.
12:57:17GodEaternever a truer word
12:57:52BigBambiBut it could avoid all feelings of insult, reasonable or not, if people didn't say things like that
12:58:10BigBambiStill, saying crapple doesn't require a massive go either :)

13:02:03BigBambiAye, but lack of intonation, body language etc. over e-mail, IRC, forums etc. doesn't help

13:55:38gevaertsDepends. You can go pretty far with it (support recording from FM,...), and if that still isn't enough work, I hope to have usb host ready by then, so we will want host-side usb audio
13:57:44gevaertsI think actual USB host would be a nice project as well, except (a) I want to have that earlier, and (b) there's no guarantee that we know enough about the hardware to actually get it to work (and that's not really fair if a student gets evaluated on results), and (c) it requires specific players, which the student might or might not have access to (maybe a weak reason)
13:58:28Bagderthe students get 4500 USD, I do think they can be expected to pay 100-200 USD for a target if they don't have one
13:58:35gevaertsAlso, for audio, the current driver doesn't support isochronous yet, so the student would have to do that as well
13:58:54Bagderwe denied one of the students target funding last year
13:59:00gevaertsBagder: yes, that's why that is a weak reason.
13:59:36Bagderyeps, I just wanted to clarify that I agree ;-)

15:44:58peturhmmm my whole music collection is in mp3 320kbps vbr...
15:45:41LambdaCalculus37Mine is mostly Vorbis Q5 VBR.
15:45:52peturcabbiev2 volume sucks - /me wants numbers
15:46:09GodEaterso don't use Cabbiev2 ?
15:46:58linuxstbpetur: 320kbps vbr? I thought 320kbps was the max bitrate ?

15:48:13linuxstbHow does the encoder know when to use lower bitrate packets?
15:48:38peturyou give it a quality factor (I used 'best')
15:48:54linuxstbIsn't 'best' just 320kbps cbr though?
15:49:17peturno, the files are vbr....
15:50:08pixelmapreglow: because the .wps has a "bug" - the volume conditional is used wrong which is most noticable on targets which only go up to 0dB

16:19:48pondlifeYes, me too
16:20:09pondlifeExactly the same symptoms as before, but much less often
16:20:27pondlifeNot seen it on the sim yet either
16:20:51LambdaCalculus37pondlife: I haven't seen it in the sim, either.
16:21:18pondlifePerhaps I should undo that fix locally, then it will misbehave more often and in the sim, so I can work on the underlying issue (which must still be there)
16:21:58*gevaerts reminds people that you can now actually have realtime logf output from PP502x players

19:14:30gevaertsTrue. It looks like the gigabeat implements some kind of hub logic in its dock. It _should_ be possible to use host usb directly through the dock connector, of you manage to get 5V from somewhere.

19:56:29amiconnIt seems that I have a working solution for the PP5002 crash bug :D
19:56:42amiconnOh man, PP5002 is really broken in some areas....
19:57:11pixelmalow_light: I was just looking around for an m:robe100 owner...
19:57:15LambdaCalculus37amiconn: What's your solution?
19:57:41amiconnThe problem is indeed that it crashes if the instruction that puts it to sleep is located at xxxxxxx0, i.e. at a cache line boundary
19:58:17amiconnSo I introduced a short sequence that ensures the instruction that *actually* puts it to sleep is never located at xxxxxxx0
19:59:25 Join petur [50] (n=petur@rockbox/developer/petur)
19:59:54amiconnI test the PC register, and use a streq / strne pair so that it always picks the one that's not located at xxxxx0
20:00:19amiconnUnfortunately, a simple solution using .align doesn't work, for 2 reasons
20:01:15amiconn(1) On arm, .align doesn't pad with NOPs in a code section, and the optional padding value is a byte, not a word
20:02:17amiconn(2) Even if that worked, linking can change alignment later, because code sections aren't padded to cache-lines per object file (like e.g. on SH)

21:41:53LloreanBecause there's no developer with one, and because the hardware differences are subtle, sometimes they seem to experience unexpected (and hard to track) behaviour

21:44:54amiconnjhMikeS: Not sure, as I don't know how the OF loads, hence whether my addresses are correct
21:45:05amiconnIt might copy parts to iram or relocate them otherwise
21:46:07peturamiconn: it was 83, and that didn't work. that was the whole point: finding a bit that does reflect the powermanagement support.
21:46:17jhMikeSdoes having the sleep in IRAM change the behavior?
21:46:57amiconnThat's something I wanted to ask - whether having core_sleep not inlined might be a problem
21:47:23amiconnpetur: Word 83 indicates whether advanced power management is supported, word 86 whether it's enabled
21:47:49amiconnSo your set_feature would only enable it if it's already enabled - certainly not correct
21:47:57peturamiconn: so test both 83 and 86?
21:48:11faemirI think someone should get employed on the iPod team and then steal all of the specifications and stuff.
21:48:42amiconnJust check 83, and additionally the validity of words 85..87 to sort out those ata devices which don't behave
21:48:44peturhmmm that bit in 86 being set just reflects that some drives have powermanagement on by default :/
21:48:57jhMikeSamiconn: not technically but the inlining was worked out to maximize the speed (my benchmarking)
21:49:30amiconnjhMikeS: Okay. Then that means having the function in iram still makes it crash depending on alignment (already tried it)

21:58:47faemirLlorean: why the hell is the shipping $80?

21:59:42amiconnThe greyscale lib is drawing too much cpu now that audio uses core dsp
22:01:01jhMikeSamiconn: Perhaps allow the greylib timer to run on COP? Much easier I think than trying to move audio to COP since the pcm driver needs some careful rework to have it do it.
22:01:36amiconnMight be possible
22:01:53amiconnIn fact that might also help to further speed up other plugins using the greylib
22:02:34amiconnThe problem is to ensure cache consistency
22:02:41 Join Rincewind [0] (
22:03:04jhMikeSbut then cache hell rears it's head if the plugin isn't expecting it

22:04:36 Join hcs [0] (n=agashlin@rockbox/contributor/hcs)
22:04:48amiconnThe greylib could make sure its buffers are uncacheable
22:04:48jhMikeS3g was always iffy with the audio. the final optimizations made some videos work without skips regardless of using the core dsp
22:05:17amiconnIt could just convert all buffer addresses internally to use UNCACHED_ADDR
22:05:56jhMikeSthen they must also be cacheline aligned
22:06:01amiconnNot all buffers would need that, just the ones accessed by the isr (values and phases)
22:06:36amiconnThat shouldn't be a problem; I'm already aligning modulo 16 on coldfire, for maximum performance
22:07:56*amiconn wonders how much this would speed up lasma
22:08:23amiconnPlasma is already so fast on mini that it's very blurry
22:09:10amiconnmpegplayer buffering is also on cpu I presume?
22:09:37jhMikeSthe alignment should probably go back to 16 for PP, somewhat unrelated: gigabeat F/X and S need 32 (the ata driver on F/X should be considering the cache lines when using DMA and reading).
22:10:13SlasheriNico_P: hi, i am just rewriting the playback event handling so you don't need to bother about that :)
22:10:32Nico_PSlasheri: nice :)

22:25:11gevaertsdionoea: there's some more issues (I will add them soon). (1) it seems to discharge while connected, and (2) it seems unreliable when used behind a hub
22:25:25dionoeaok. Sounds great :)
