#rockbox log for 2008-05-25

00:00:12BigBambigevaerts: I was under the impression rbutil always installs a 32 MB build
00:00:20BigBambias it can't tell the difference
00:00:27BigBambibluebrother: is that true?

00:01:17bluebrotherBigBambi: yes.
00:01:31lobfso...any idea what i should do?
00:01:46BigBambinope, I don't use the database
00:01:46bluebrotherwell, you can tell rbutil to install a 64MiB build on about any target ... but autodetection will detect only 32.
00:02:08saratogadoes the file browser work?
00:02:22BigBambilobf: did you use autodetection, or did you pick the target?
00:02:56lobfi picked drive H, 5th gen 80GB
00:03:24bluebrotherwe really need to force autodetection ...
00:03:36BigBambicould you try installing this build instead:
00:03:42BigBambi@ lobf
00:04:04BigBambigevaerts: you could be right - I assumed because of rbutil it couldn't be
00:04:44 Join PaulJam [0] (
00:05:30lobfthanks a bunch, bambi. i'll give it a shot and let you know
00:05:55bluebrotherhmm. Should rbutil simply fail due to a wrong md5sum if hex file and selected player don't match or should it have additional checks?
00:06:07BigBambifor h100/h300?
00:06:13*bluebrother feels that code consists only of checks
00:06:49bluebrotheryou can tell rbutil you have a h100 but feed it a h300 bootloader. It will work fine until checking of the created file
00:07:13BigBambimight as well check at the earliest stage possible
00:08:24lobfhey bambi, forgive my ignorance, but what do i do with that directory when i get it?
00:08:29lobfjust move it to my ipod?
00:08:33BigBambilobf: extract it to your player
00:08:37BigBambiit is a zip file
00:09:47saratogadoes teh stuff in the root of /firmare get built for the SIM?
00:09:52bluebrotherlobf: you need to extract the zip file to your player keeping all paths inside. The topmost folder ".rockbox" needs to be in the root of your player (but you already have one there)
00:10:48lobfi got it, thanks
00:10:49BigBambiOr you could use rbutil to install a new build (on the second tab) but select video 30 GB instead
00:10:54*preglow starts pushing leads into his d2
00:11:01lobfwhy select 30GB?
00:11:24BigBambithe only difference is memory amount
00:11:41BigBambithe 30 GB has 32 mb, the 60/80 GB has 64 GB
00:12:02BigBambiif you use a 32MB build on a 64GB, no problem, but the other way round won't work
00:12:12BigBambiIt will give problems similar to what you are seeing
00:12:24gevaertsThere seem to be some 60/80GB's around that only have 32MB, which would explain this
00:12:36BigBambiSome 60/80 GB videos are actually 30 GB videos with a bigger disk
00:13:05*gevaerts hopes that we didn't confuse lobf too much yet
00:13:26BigBambilobf: the link I gave you is for a 32 MB (30 GB video) build
00:13:27lobfnope. it's fine
00:15:46lobfso when i extract it to my ipod i just reset my ipod?
00:16:01 Nick fxb__ is now known as fxb (
00:16:52bluebrotherjust reboot it. No need to reset
00:20:59 Quit PaulJam_ (Read error: 113 (No route to host))
00:22:03n1swe really should make rockbox auto detect the ramsize...
00:22:42bluebrotherreminds me that we don't know how to distinguish x5 and x5v for bootloader installation :(
00:22:50BigBambin1s: it does - it returns data abort for 32 MB ones :)
00:23:08lobfBTW- this program kicks ass otherwise
00:23:12lobfyou guys rock
00:23:32n1sbluebrother: i think i told you about this before but: they use different filenames for the bootloaders so we can copy both over and the correct one will be flashed
00:23:46lobf(it's doing the database now... i'll let you know if it works)
00:23:56n1sBigBambi: well, I would have gone for a friendlier approach :)
00:25:16bluebrothern1s: has someone confirmed that only the correct one will get used?
00:25:41bluebrothermake bootloader installation needing _another_ special case. And I'm trying to consolidate ATM :(
00:26:03n1sbluebrother: afaik, yes, but why would they have different filenames (and different headers if they didn't?)
00:26:38n1sshould be an easy test for someone with an x5
00:30:41saratogadoes anyone have any input on how simulator code should be merged into the target tree?
00:31:05saratogaright now a good deal of it is just #ifdefed into other files for the sim, and pointed at the target tree otherwise
00:31:37saratogashould there be a target tree entry for generic versions of functions used by the sims?
00:31:52bluebrothersaratoga: how about a target "sdl"?
00:31:54 Quit lobf (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
00:32:03saratogai suppose on devices its simple enough, since most (all?) SDL targets are just going to be arm, so they can use the target tree
00:32:22saratogabut if I want to compile an "application rockbox" for an x86 system, its not so clear how this should work
00:32:34bluebrotherand then put files into firmware/target/x86/sdl
00:33:00bluebrotheror x86app/sdl
00:33:08saratogabluebrother: should the sim use that code too or do we want to leave that alone?
00:33:48bluebrotherwell, I'd consider the sim as a target for itself. Question is how good this fits into target tree
00:34:17saratogai think it was currently favored that we leave the sim seperate from any SDL targets
00:34:47saratogamostly i'm wondering abotu duplicating code
00:36:21bluebrotherhmm. Can't emember the discussion, but I guess there were good reasons for that.
00:36:30n1smaybe it's a good idea to pop a mail on the dev list for this one?
00:37:05 Quit spiorf (Remote closed the connection)
00:37:18bluebrothermight be worth it. Or add it as topic for devcon?
00:37:51saratogamaybe it makes sense to just make the SDL targets declare SIMULATOR so they get all teh cross platform functions, and then have the SOURCES files also include the SDL target tree stuff if its an application build
00:38:23n1ssounds like a hack to me...
00:38:25 Join lobf [0] (
00:39:09saratogayes, but grepping "ifndef SIMULATOR" makes me kind of hesistant to do it otherwise
00:39:48preglowthere, one sd card less
00:40:20saratogain reality SIMULATOR seems to be used to declare any platform agnostic code, which is basically what the SDL targets are
00:40:40saratogathough i guess eventually we want a way to also specify that its "SDL ARM" or whatever
00:41:44n1sthis should be given some proper thought to avoid getting into a deeper ifdef hell than necessary

00:44:00lobfokay folks
00:44:10 Part Luis
00:44:22lobfso i loaded that different version and i get the same error
00:44:46saratogadid you ever try it without the database?
00:46:28lobfno... how?
00:46:37gevaertslobf: did you extract the correctly ? Some unzip programs like to add an extra directory
00:46:52saratogaFiles menu then select a song and see if it plays
00:46:54lobflemme check
00:47:33bluebrotherwhy unzip? You can simply tell rbutil to use the 5G 30MiB build
00:47:43bluebrotherand that will do everything needed ...
00:48:18saratogais pcm.c used on software decode targets?
00:48:21lobfokay, i'll try the auto installer and select 30GB to make sure my bases are covered
00:48:35gevaertsThat's probably the safest way
00:48:50*bluebrother wouldn't call rbutil "auto" ...
00:48:50lobfoh, and my musc is all in that hidden default ipod file
00:48:58bluebrotheruse the "Installation" tab
00:48:59lobfso i can't manually select my songs
00:49:06BigBambiyes you can
00:49:09lobfthat's what i mean
00:49:14bluebrotherlobf: you can. Just set "show filetypes" to "all"
00:49:17BigBambiit changes the names and puts them in random folders

00:57:03gevaertsDoes the ability to play one song on a 64MB prove without doubt that this is a 64MB board ?

00:58:49lobfso you don't know what's going on?
00:58:54gevaertsAre you using the rbutil-installed 32MB build ?
00:58:56BigBambiIt is 1am and I am tired
00:59:24lobfgev- i started with the 64 but just tried the 32
00:59:51lobfgave me the same problem
00:59:53JdGordonDavide-NYC: hey, can you explain what you mean that the stop icon doesnt update in my trigger patch? I really want to commit it today
01:00:19bluebrotheryeah. h... bootloader installation works :)
01:00:49Davide-NYCOh, just that in the trigger screen, when the threshold is met and a file is actually recording, the stop square should dissapear.
01:01:18bluebrotherenough work done for today. 'nite!
01:02:11gevaertsOK, so it's not the 64MB build causing the problem. That means it is in a place that I know nothing about...
01:05:23saratogaso anyone here familar with what pcm.c does?
01:05:24Davide-NYCJdGordon: basically the stop icon should disappear when recording is engaged. should show stop if the trigtype os set to stop (and the recording is stopped) and should show pause (double bars) if the trigtype is set to pause and the recording is in fact paused.

04:48:14jpt9Does Rockbox have any sort of way to compress/even out volume levels? I have a radio show whose levels vary greatly, and it would be nice not to have to adjust the volume every few minutes.
04:48:46saratogai think you'd have to divide it up into segments and replaygain each
04:49:00jpt9that would be quite annoying to do.
04:49:19saratogawell check the manual, but i don't recall seeing any sort of dynamic volume feature
04:49:37saratogaits not usually necessary, since radio is so heavily compressed during trasmission
04:50:26jpt9well, it's mostly when they get phone calls −− the callers are usually *much* louder than the hosts.

05:10:21saratogamake gets through the first 20 or so files before finally erroring out
05:10:35saratogamostly i'm just figuring out how the sim works though
05:13:30saratogaJdGordon: ever seen something like this:
05:14:35JdGordonits trying to compile some asm
05:14:42JdGordonwhich is bad mmkay for sdl :p
05:14:50saratogayeah i know but i don't know where its coming from
05:15:02JdGordonwhats with those /tmp/ files?!
05:16:11JdGordonyour in a #if defined(CPU_ARM) block...
05:16:15saratogaeven weirder, that warning it gives me is in the middle of an #ifdef CPU_ARM
05:16:26saratogayes but I have not defined CPU_ARM
05:16:57saratogaat least not in configure or the makefile
05:17:12saratogagrep -r CPU_ARM gives no matches in my build directory either
05:17:15jhMikeSdid you #define CONFIG_CPU ?
05:17:21JdGordonits automatically defined in config.h
05:17:40jhMikeSCONFIG_CPU shouldn't be the target CPU for a SIM
05:19:04saratogai didn't touch CONFIG_CPU at all
05:19:14saratogado i need to?
05:19:26JdGordonyou might have to...
05:19:32jhMikeSIt shouldn't be defined by the config file if a SIM is made
05:20:04saratogaugh its being set to PP5024
05:21:49saratogagreat now thread.h blows up on me
05:22:25saratogagetting this thing to compile without specifying an ARM or Coldfire CPU is annoying
05:22:59jhMikeSAll sims should be compiling as such
05:23:10JdGordonjhMikeS: he's doing a new target... not a sim
05:23:18JdGordonso the firmware/ code is all being comipled..
05:23:36JdGordonsaratoga: just think, the mips guys will thanks you when they start getting code in :)
05:23:43jhMikeSI saw "eax" and such in the pasteand assumed :)
05:25:07saratogai guess I should just define something like SDL and change a lot of the ifdef SIMULATOR lines to #ifdef SIMULTOR || SDL ?
05:25:43*jhMikeS saw the SDL mention as well. wth sort of target?
05:25:52saratogageneric SDL
05:26:02saratogafor now that would be my ubuntu PC
05:26:16saratogabut eventually some sort of cellphone or whatever
05:26:25jhMikeSso the "rockbox as app" thing ?
05:28:25saratogabasically i want to bring all the sim stuff into the target tree, with the option of targeting a generic CPU, or an ARM CPU in which case all the ARM assmebly stuff gets used when possible
05:28:55saratogaand then i want to work on the possibility of targeting other APIs then SDL
05:29:18JdGordon... the swedes liked the idea of (at least initially) keeping the sdl target and the sims seperate..
05:29:29saratogai saw that
05:29:34saratogaand it makes sense to me
05:29:44saratogaso i was goign to leave the current sim completely alone
05:30:14saratogai guess some code will be duplicated, but probably not much, and not for long i think if anyone started seriously working on an app port
05:31:14saratogaand i suppose we don't actually have to commit the generic SDL target stuff if no one sees a use for it, though i think it'll be useful for me, at least while i'm figuring all this out
05:31:22saratogamuch quicker then trying to debug on a target
05:31:39JdGordonI'm going to have another go at trying to get gcc going for winCE again once the month rolls over and I have heaps of download limit to churn though again
05:32:05saratogaand i'm dreaming of eventually adding the emulator project as a target too . . .
05:32:31saratogaJdGordon: how far did you get last time?
05:32:56JdGordonnot very... gcc wouldnt compile and the only binary packages are for i386 and rpms
05:33:07JdGordonso gonna get a i386 VM going

05:36:43TheGazRI've thought of a pretty cool idea for Rockbox that I won't mind having a go at inplementing in the summer
05:37:06TheGazRI don't think Rockbox supports it yet, but some form of Pin code?
05:37:32TheGazRBeing able to lock your device, or if it's idle for a certain amount of time it locks itself or something :S
05:38:10saratogaits been proposed before, but most people seemed to think it was a bad idea
05:38:30TheGazRHmm, fair enough
05:38:49TheGazRWhy is that out of interest?
05:39:04saratogayou can always mount in UMS mode and remove the lock
05:40:08TheGazRMy idea was something like, have a unique encrypted key that you could have on the device and on your computer, and if the pin code was entered wrong 3 times or something it bricks the device, and the only way you're able to unbrick the device is by plugging it into your computer or something
05:40:48JdGordonsaratoga: supposedly not... you can compile the wince libs on linux or something... there isnt much working howto's though
05:41:08saratogaJdGordon: which is the prefered environment?
05:41:13saratogaWindows i guess?
05:41:26JdGordonfor what?
05:41:31TheGazRI thought of the idea whilst walking home from a party, so it's a bit shady at the moment
05:41:35saratogafor the wince-gcc project
05:42:00JdGordonwell, no, the point of that project is for linux guys to be able to write their wince apps on linux..
05:42:27JdGordonthe other option is seeing if mingw can compile rockbox on windows...
05:43:17saratogaif it'd help, i can probably find you a 32 bit linux machine around here without a bandwidth cap, though i don't know how usable SSH is over this kind of distance
05:43:46JdGordonna its alright
05:44:03saratogapersonally i'm rather indifferent as to which target we look at, i just want to be able to care as little as possible about the horrible details of setting up gcc and all that
05:44:07JdGordonim pretty sure i have a i386 ubuntu cd somewhere... im just lazy and using th end of the month as an excuse :?p
05:45:14saratogathough i am a fan of MS's documentation, so if we can link their api it might be fun
05:46:54***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
05:46:57JdGordonwell.. once the framework is more solid we should be able to get a winCE target going along side a sdl target or nix or whatever... so if you prefer a linux phone then its all good

09:36:38lobfi deleted that and am doing it again just for fun
09:37:32bertrikhas it ever been considered to make the cpu boost automatic?
09:37:59lobfokay, chkdsk finished, no errors
09:38:20bertrikright now, boost/unboost is all over the code and prone to be unbalanced. I've run in quite a few bugs with this already.
09:38:45bertrikMaybe we could decide to boost/unboost in the kernel, based on the number of tasks that are ready
09:39:17linuxstbHow would that work? Just having 1 task ready could mean the CPU needs boosting.
09:41:11bertriklinuxstb: you mean like a codec decoding task that doesn't run fast enough to be realtime when unboosted
09:41:43lobfhey linux- any suggestions?
09:42:06linuxstbbertrik: Yes. Or disk reading which doesn't _have_ to boost, but it saves power if it does (IIUC).
09:42:48linuxstblobf: I assume you're still getting the "undefined instruction" ?
09:43:15lobfwell i haven't tried the databse since i did chkdsk... should i?

09:44:07lobfyes, but i did't know if chkdsk changed anything
09:44:18lobfi thought it just verified whetheror not my disk was fucked
09:44:36linuxstbIf you used the "/f" option, then it should have fixed any errors it found. You said it found an error with one file?
09:44:56lobfi'll try it again
09:45:11jhMikeSJdGordon: once a tick at least
09:45:13lobfi remember it saying it fixed some stuff

09:45:25lobfbear with me :)
09:46:41linuxstbbertrik: There seems to be a difference of opinion about the Rockbox kernel - some people want to keep it as simple as possible, others want to make it as complex as possible...
09:46:41lobfoh, also when i touch my scroll wheel when it's databasing the file number moves more quickly for a moment
09:46:49bertrika disk reading task could yield instead of sleep to keep it's task in the ready state and indicate it's not really done yet
09:46:59***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
09:47:11jhMikeSJdGordon: too much and you just kill cycles with pointless switch_thread calls that will just likely select the same thread again
09:48:58jhMikeSyield cycle burning is pointless and the core can't enter a low-power state in a yield call - only sleeping or blocking which can take all threads off the run list. thread block and waking is a microsecond-level activity anyway.
09:50:11JdGordonok, so is HZ/4 too slow?
09:55:10jhMikeSby a factor of at least 25 :)
09:56:46JdGordonok, so it was probably yielding less than once per tick anyway..
09:57:03JdGordonroughly how much can these cpus do in a tick?
09:57:46jhMikeSlinuxstb: "complex as possible"? I see it as "make it as simple for the other 99% of the code as possible".
09:58:23jhMikeSJdGordon: Updating the display several times isn't much to ask
09:58:56JdGordonwalking the directory tree?
09:59:28linuxstbjhMikeS: I know - but others (including me) would like to just keep the kernel simple and understandable by as many people as possible.
10:00:19jhMikeSJdGordon: a hundred or so files w/o dircache it looks like
10:00:29 Quit csc` ("If you can't do anything smart, do somethin right ~Serenity")
10:00:47JdGordoncrikey... so it could very well be yielding many hundreds of times per tick?
10:01:44jhMikeSJdGordon: probably - a gigabeat can rack up millions of switch_threads just starting the firmware (because of spinning in the ata driver)
10:02:23JdGordonwould it be stupid to add a check in the actual yield call then to stop that?
10:04:32jhMikeSlinuxstb: things can't be simpler than the task demands though or you'll just end up with ill-behaved code - so for example, if you have priority, a scheme to prevent inversions is mandatory which amounts to inheritance (easy to use, hard to implement) or ceiling protocols (easy to implement, programmer must watch resource priorities though).
10:05:38jhMikeSJdGordon: dsp.c just watches the tick. it needed at least one upon entry and then limits it to each tick change thereafter.
10:08:26lobfhey linux... it worked!

10:11:20lobfthisis pretty awesome software
10:13:41bertriklinuxstb: I like simple too, but so far I've seen enough bugs with boost/unboost to make it worth thinking about some kind of autoboost
10:14:53linuxstbbertrik: Are there currently bugs with unbalanced boost/unboost calls?
10:16:12bertriknot sure if it's an unbalance, but the cpu in my sansa stays boosted when playing the last song of an album with repeat off
10:18:40bertrik(this is already on the patch tracker : )
10:21:41jhMikeSbertrik: we had that and it's really very ugly because there really no reliable way to tell outside the thread doing the boosting when it should or shouldn't. It's manual but calling trigger_cpu_boost multiple times in a row doesn't accumulate counts for the thread that did it. 100 calls to trigger_cpu_boost for example gets cancelled by a single call to cancel_cpu_boost.
10:25:14jhMikeSI can say for sure that the auto thing created way more difficulties, longer-lasting bugs and strange hacks to "make sure".

10:37:01jhMikeSbertrik: one exeption will likely be the IMX31-based targets which has hardware dedicated to DVFS that watches activity in various systems and can scale gradually the frequency and core voltage

11:12:34advcomp2019i am not sure
11:12:57lobfthanks for the tip, JdGordon
11:13:02lobfthat's useful
11:13:52lobfrockbox isn't so great for podcasts, though...
11:14:37advcomp2019if you use the files and not database it is useful in my opinion

11:18:01lobfgood idea
11:20:02*BigBambi doesn't get the whole thing with podcasts being different - they are just audio files...
11:21:14lobfthe default ipod software keeps track of which you've listened to already, lists them by date, and has them in a separate directory

12:13:00n1si don't know much about thread synchronisation and the like but why is the mutex only locked/unlocked in ata_read_sectors if MAX_PHYS_SECTOR_SIZE is not defined?
12:14:30JdGordonso a read/write doesnt happen to part of the open sector when its 2048 bytes instead of 512?
12:14:46jhMikeSbecause I think it gets called from higher up with the mutex locked in that case

13:00:28jhMikeSI saw that it can measure a degree or two warmer even after an hour or so. One thing that helps is put it face down on something insulated or a surface that doesn't match the air temp will change things.

18:13:14entropyHello, can anyone help me find out why my 80Gb ipod freezes on all songs at 0:00, after rockbox install, on the apple side of its boot?
18:15:54entropyi am using rockbox version r.15589-071111 on an 80 Gb video ipod, and couldnt find this issue in the faq,manual, or rockbox site...
18:17:01linuxstbThat's about a six month old version of Rockbox... When did you inst
18:17:06linuxstb^install it?
18:17:16entropyabout 6 months ago
18:17:30linuxstbAnd have you had this problem since then?
18:18:10linuxstbAnd do I understand correctly that your problem is that songs now no longer play in the original Apple firmware?
18:18:11entropyyes, i mainly use the rockbox side which works fine, but now i thought id try to fix the apple side, just trying to get back my itunes junk
18:18:35entropythat is correct, they freeze at 0:00 but list alright on the ipod
18:19:25linuxstbSounds like a problem with the Apple firmware's database - nothing really to do with Rockbox.
18:20:06entropyalright, so i should probably search apples sites for a database fix solution, linuxstb?
18:21:25linuxstbI expect the only think Apple will say is to restore your ipod and transfer your music again with itunes. But third-party "itunes replacement" programs may be able to rebuild the database. But this is getting off-topic for here.
18:22:06entropyno prob, thanks for the help lstb, much appreciated, btw rockbox is great

19:58:50kylehjinI had a 5.5g 80GB with ROckbox working great until one day it randomly gives me errors about not finding rockbox.ipod and won't boot

19:59:27kylehjinI try to mount /dev/sdb2 which is the large FAT32 partition I originally formatted with mtools but now it won't mount unless I actually specify -t vfat
19:59:41kylehjinOtherwise it will complain about unknown filesystem type
19:59:59kylehjinAnd when I do mount -t vfat /dev/sdb2 it works but I can't write to it!
20:01:02saratogasounds like you have some file system problems, maybe run whatever checkdisk equivilent is in linux and see if it finds errors

20:07:02krazykitkylehjin, yes, do fsck that filesystem, and make sure your user has write permissions on the mount. see the mount man page for what options you'd need.
20:07:44kylehjinkrazykit: So I fscked it and fixed maybe 7 or so errors
20:08:02kylehjinNow fsck.vfat returns no errors
20:08:07 Join nuonguy [0] (
20:08:26kylehjinBUt I still have the same problems in that I cannot mount without -t vfat and when I do I cannot write to it even as root
20:09:09krazykittry -t vfat -o uid=whatever_your_uid_is
20:09:25krazykitoh, even as root.
20:10:12saratogaif you've got itunes handy, its probably just easier to restore the ipod and then readd your music and rockbox
20:10:35krazykitthere's also the manual ipod restore you can do from linux.
