00:02:10k4ywhat is the current generation of iPod? 5?
00:02:53preglowyou could call it sixth gen
00:03:10DhraakellianThe Classic?
00:03:19BigBambiAbsnthe: Are you running with admin rights?
00:03:31pixelmaAbsnthe: you believe? May have a look here: to make sure. Also, do you get an error message?
00:05:25AbsntheYes I am running with admin, i am sure it is a 4g, and the error is "no ipods found, aborting"
00:05:48 Join dan_a [0] (n=dan-mirc@
00:06:22BigBambiAbsnthe: have you either quite itunes altogether (including services), or ticked the use as disk option (or whatever it is called) within it?
00:06:28PaulJam__Absnthe: does the original firmware run fine?
00:06:40pixelmaand is your Ipod in disk mode?
00:07:38AbsntheThe original firmware is corrupted (sad ipod) and I am not sure about disk mode.
00:08:01Absnthewhat keypress is it?
00:08:22BigBambiRockbox needs a working OF to install I believe
00:08:28PaulJam__Absnthe: in that case you have to restore the ipod first. the installer requires a working originalfirmware
00:09:34AbsntheI cannot restore the ipod because it does not show up as a disk (Windows)
00:10:23BigBambihave you tried emergency disk mode?
00:10:45 Quit ender` (" It is difficult to produce a television documentary that is both incisive and probing when every twelve minutes one is inte")
00:10:49Absnthewhat is the key combo for that?
00:10:56BigBambiIt is in the manual
00:11:07BigBambiI don't know off the top of my head, I don't have an ipod
00:11:53PaulJam__i thnk it is select + play immediately after reset but i'm not 100% sure
00:12:19Absnthegoogled it, its select+menu then select+play
00:12:34scorche|shpixelma: yes...this bug isnt playing nicely =/
00:12:56scorche|shk4y: just curious, but when you get a new device, what are you planning on doing with the x5?
00:13:07 Quit AndyI ()
00:13:14Dhraakellianhmm... so how would I go about patching and building Rockbox with the battery benchmark patch?
00:13:22 Join jgarvey [0] (
00:13:26Dhraakellianwell, patching would probably be the easy part
00:13:47scorche|shDhraakellian: have you looked at the SimpleGuideToCompiling wiki page?
00:13:50Absnthenope, cant put it into disk mode
00:14:21 Quit Zarggg ("Pursued by a bear")
00:14:31Dhraakellianscorche|sh: thanks... I thought I had seen a page like that, but I didn't remember where it was.
00:14:39PaulJam__Absnthe: what happens when you try?
00:14:54Dhraakellian"NOTE: This guide is for Windows users only!"
00:14:57BigBambiAbsnthe: Well, unless you manage to restore it, think you are out of luck
00:15:02AbsntheSad iPod.
00:15:05scorche|shDhraakellian: you are a linux user?
00:15:16Absntherestore it how?
00:15:20*Dhraakellian looks down a little further
00:15:22scorche|shAbsnthe: disk mode *will* work if done right
00:15:40BigBambiAbsnthe: Unless there is a hardware problem, disk mode will work
00:15:46BigBambiAbsnthe: right = correct
00:15:48Dhraakellianso I just ignore the cygwin parts, since I already hae the unix-like environment?
00:15:54scorche|shDhraakellian: in that case, just run the script which is in svn and then work off the instructions on that page
00:16:04AbsntheI did it as reccomended on
00:16:21scorche|shthe script will build the crosscompilers for you
00:16:34k4yscorche|sh: i'm not sure yet
00:16:58BigBambiDhraakellian: as well
00:17:00scorche|shk4y: well, when you do figure it out, keep in mind that there are people in here that are willing to take it off your hands ;)
00:17:01Dhraakellianon a semi-related point, (when) is the patch likely to be checked in to svn itself?
00:17:20PaulJam__Absnthe: try it a few more times. i think timing is important and that you hold your fingers still while holding the buttons.
00:17:34k4yscorche|sh: heh, well, i guess that depends on whether they want to pay for international shipping on top of it ;)
00:17:36BigBambiDhraakellian: If it is a) for all players allowed by hardware b) written correctly, c) actually a wanted feature, ....
00:17:37Absntheok ill try again

00:18:10k4yscorche|sh: is the X5 popular amongst rockboxers? (is that the term?)
00:18:20BigBambik4y: that depends where you live - a majority of devs are european for instance
00:18:32k4yBigBambi: i live in South Africa
00:18:48BigBambiI don't know of any from there :)
00:18:50scorche|shk4y: there are much more popular, but it has its share
00:18:50 Quit [CBR]Unspoken|w (Connection timed out)
00:18:56DhraakellianBigBambi: a) the bug report says that it should help even the HDD-based players, b) can't speak to that other than what I've read about it, and c) I'd guess that fixing the battery bench plugin for flash-based players would be wanted
00:19:06k4yscorche|sh: what's one of the most popular?
00:19:29BigBambiDhraakellian: It needs checking by a developer with commit access that has the time, knowledge, and inclination

00:19:31k4yBigBambi: interesting though, i just assumed that the developers were mostly American

00:19:59scorche|shk4y: here is a rough guess based on download count:
00:20:06BigBambik4y: nope - Rockbox was started in Sweden, and is no pretty international, but with a EU development slant

00:36:16amaldoI have a Sansa e200v2, and would like to help with the porting effort. Where can I get the datasheet for the AS3525 chip? Is asking AMS the only way?
00:39:02 Nick PaulJam__ is now known as PaulJam (
00:41:05dan_aamaldo: A large amount of the useful information from the datasheet is in the patch in FS #8843 on our tracker
00:41:56amaldodan_a: thanks, will read it.
00:43:24dan_aWe also need to figure out the original firmware format so that we can safely add our own bootloader
00:44:44amaldoyeah, reading from the forums, no one is sure if the player will answer on MSC mode if the firmware bricked it.
00:45:52 Join BHSPitLappy [0] (n=BHSPitLa@unaffiliated/bhspitmonkey)
00:46:50dan_aI've not managed to brick my Clip yet - it seems that most things which it decides are invalid just don't get saved onto the flash.
00:47:53amaldodan_a: what seems to be the major show stopper now? Some checksums that are not understood?
00:48:41amaldodan_a: that patch has a lot of nice GPL'd source files with registers, important adresses, etc... Really nice.
00:49:47 Quit linuxstb (Read error: 101 (Network is unreachable))
00:50:16dan_aamaldo: I think that we don't know how to add more than a few bytes of code to the firmware and have the device accept it is one big problem. Another is not knowing how to talk to the I2C... but that should be fairly easy to reverse engineer (I think)
00:51:28amaldodan_a: I'll try to finish reading all the forum posts, and then see if I can put my oscilloscope, or digital probe to some good use. :)

01:24:48zeno_what runs rockbox and supports SDHC cards? im thinking of cowon d2 but i would have to get both sound and touch working (tough!)
01:25:16JdGordonthe c200/e200's support micro sdhc
01:27:08kienerii_how do i know the ipod generation?
01:29:21zeno_JdGordon: i need reg sdhc tho, i already own some
01:29:35zeno_also e100 had micro i think
01:30:23gevaertszeno_: the d2 doesn't only miss sound, but also flash and sd (although those are being worked on IIUC)
01:31:37 Part toffe82
01:32:06kienerii_is the ipod classic supported by rockbox?
01:32:17PaulJamkienerii_: no
01:33:24scorche|shkienerii_: as is said on the front page...
01:33:43kienerii_is there anything in development for the classic?
01:33:54scorche|shnot currently
01:34:09kienerii_scorche|sh: i red it but i do not know if the homepage is up to date :D
01:34:21scorche|shwhy wouldnt it be?
01:34:44kienerii_i dont know :) i thought it'd be better to ask you
01:35:40scorche|shif the website wasnt up to date, then why would we have it in the first place and not just put a big banner there that says "just ask us"?
01:35:44*scorche|sh shrugs
01:35:46 Join SsS [0] (
01:36:36JdGordonmaybe we should add something like "this taregt list is autogenerated from the source.. it is 100% up to date.. dont bloody ask in irc about other targets"
01:37:07PaulJamwouldn't that be a lie?
01:38:24dan_aI think a "last updated on..." bit would help people feel confident that it was up-to-date
01:39:14 Join saratoga [0] (n=41becb3b@gateway/web/cgi-irc/
01:39:18scorche|shi dont...if we had that, then if we dont add targets for a few months we get tons of people coming in IRC and saying "well, it hadnt been updated in 4 months, so it might have not been up to date!"
01:39:31scorche|shi think that would cause more people to ask and not trust the text
01:39:40saratogamaybe change "current status" to "All other devices"
01:39:56saratogaso that people realize theres more information linked from the front page
01:40:41scorche|shwow, thats a big page
01:44:31dan_aI guess that ports can be in one of 4 states: Supported, Working but not yet supported, Some Rockbox code runs, and no Rockbox code runs. It might not be clear to people when we say that "Rockbox is not available for the Classic" it means no Rockbox code runs, rather than any of the other options.

04:03:03saratogai think the problem with the beast is that you can't charge it in the OF, and you can't dual boot it (legally) without buying an IDE adapter
04:03:57saratogawhich means that in practice we'd either have to tell people to improperly distribute software or buy a HD adapter or else they'd get exactly one battery cycle out of it before it was dead

04:17:55pathologicOK, so I have a question.
04:18:57pathologicI managed to wrestle Rockbox onto my Gigabeat S. Problem is, I can't figure out how to get my player to charge.
04:19:01jhMikeSsaratoga: I'm working on the battery problem as we speak anyway :)
04:19:39jhMikeSpathologic: the code to have it charge isn't implemented yet so retailos is needed for that
04:20:14pathologicAlright, cool. Thanks.
04:21:12pathologicAnywhere you can direct me so I can find out how to get that set up?
04:22:03jhMikeSthe GigabeatS wiki has the info
04:23:13jhMikeSthough once you have the rockbox bootloader installed, you can place nk.bin on it with UMS (on the small partition)

09:07:19peturmess up is a big word. *if* it crashes you just reset it and you're done again
09:07:36peturit doesn't crash very much, if at all (depends on what you do)
09:08:03Minvkwhat i mean tho is can it mess it up permanantly
09:08:06*GodEater 's ipod video hasn't crashed under rockbox in a very long time
09:08:09peturso it is stable enough to use every day ;)
09:08:10Minvklike just freeze it forever
09:08:15GodEaterno, it can't mess it up permanently
09:08:29Minvkthats tite

09:09:05peturyou can't brick an ipod
09:09:19Minvkmy friend once got a virus on his ipod

09:57:12LloreanAlright, so the hold switch option for determining USB connect vs USB charge already won't work for about 4 targets.
09:57:30 Quit Minvk ()
09:57:57*petur wonders how many targets use hold-REC now for charging
09:58:14LloreanI think it's *just* the H300
09:58:25LloreanAt least on SWCodec.
09:58:33peturno further question ;)
09:58:47LloreanIt really should be changed temporarily, but i keep hoping this will just be agreed to and done with.
09:59:06LloreanThe e200 uses Hold Select, and most others use whatever their "Menu" button is (quickscreen) I think
09:59:16linuxstbLlorean: The issue of how to select between power/UMS on USB insert has been discussed at length at least a couple of times in IRC, but I keep forgetting the conclusion...
09:59:46Lloreanlinuxstb: There's a flyspray task now.
10:00:11LloreanPersonally, I like "a menu option to let the user pick the default (always charge, always connect), and holding any button down does the other thing
10:01:23LloreanThe other competing option seems to be the use of the hold switch. It's easier (no need for two hands) but it won't be consistent across every target, and it allows for additional confusion by people who accidentally leave it on (in my opinion)
10:01:53LloreanI'd settle for a coin flip between to the two if we haven't decided by DevCon. :)
10:02:44*petur takes the coin with the two identical sides away from Llorean ;)
10:03:06*Llorean doesn't know what you're talking about. ;)

16:38:05LloreanWhat's with the colors on ?
16:38:28LloreanThe ranges seem somewhat arbitrary, and the color choices seem to make it kinda hard to read without conveying much information.

16:43:15faemirAnd nice.
16:43:48LloreanDoes anyone know if there was discussion of the % ranges used to determine those colors, or if it was unilateral? I'd like to revert it, as I feel they're misleading as they stand now.

16:58:29markunLlorean: I thought the colours might have just been confusing for us colour challenged people :)
16:58:52LloreanThere's that too.
16:59:32LloreanBut I feel the ranges are poor. Orange and yellow generally still suggest warnings. But I think a codec that's 300% realtime is probably quite usable
17:00:04LambdaCalculus37Llorean: Agreed.
17:01:06LloreanI could understand if the colors were more arbitrary (and all darker / more readable on blue) and represented a 100 point range each, or something
17:01:07markunLlorean: just 2 colours for < 100% (red) and >= 100% (green) seam more logical to me
17:01:18Llorean< 130% I'd say
17:01:42markunwell, whichevery is enough for normal playback without stuttering during navigation
17:01:42LloreanI believe we usually approximate ~120% realtime as needed for normal playback, considering UI overhead.
17:01:56LambdaCalculus37Llorean: That was mentioned here...
17:02:00LloreanThough some tests might be good to find out at what point one can usually also turn on full EQ
17:02:11LloreanSo we could have red, orange (can't use full DSP) and green.
17:04:38LloreanWell, I'll revert it for now.
17:06:15LambdaCalculus37Llorean: I think three levels of colors (red, orange, and green) makes much more sense.
17:06:20n1sLlorean: i'd expect the full dsp threshold to be around 250-300%
17:06:20LambdaCalculus37Very good idea. :)
17:08:05Lloreann1s: I'd wonder if it's different on different architectures.
17:08:30LloreanThere's also the fact that different targets have different overhead (iPod Video being a notable example)
17:08:42LloreanI'm not sure there's any way colors can avoid being misleading without a *lot* of testing.

18:17:23Bagderah right
18:18:43linuxstbGuest55: I think you may also need to compile your own sansapatcher - the released version is probably older than that change... It's not a feature we would consider "supported" though.
18:18:52Guest55my wife's c250 freezes on boot after sitting for a long time and requires a hard reset to function again, I was thinking this would fix that problem since it seems to be the sansa of causing it

18:40:43jpt91Does Rockbox have an audio compressor (levels-wise; I already know it has on-the-fly MP3 encoding for recording)? I have some radio shows that are somewhat annoying to listen to due to varying levels (and my headphones are somewhat quiet).
18:40:49jpt91If it doesn't, it might be a neat feature to add.
18:43:44markunjpt91: it doesn't
18:44:01markunshould be easy to add, do you want to give it a go?
18:44:18jpt91dunno... never coded on rockbox before, and I also haven't done any audio programming before...
18:45:28markundo you know C?
18:45:38markunthis would be the file to add it to:
18:47:25markunI can think of a very simple way to do the compression, but maybe it doesn't sound very good.
18:48:58jpt91how about just "watching" the level meters and automatically enforcing a minimum amount of gain (with a bit of a limit so it doesn't try to amplify silence or barely audible sounds)?
18:49:22markunyes, autogain would also be possible, but is different from compression, right?
18:50:06 Quit jeffdamet1 (Connection timed out)
18:50:13markunI usually don't like autogain since in slient parts you just hear the noise getting louder and louder until someone talks and it quickly drops again
18:50:29jpt91good point.
18:50:51jpt91that's why you'd have a minimum level for turning on the autogain.
18:51:00DerPapstwhile speaking of dsp stuff... is there an easy way to implement something like transpose?
18:51:17markunDerPapst: what is it?
18:51:28markunjpt91: maybe some useful info in here:
18:51:31jpt91I know Rockbox does pitch/time shifting (like a tape player)
18:51:50jpt91but it doesn't let you *just* shift the pitch without affecting the speed or vice versa.
18:51:51DerPapstmarkun: similar to what pitch does just without changing the playback speed

22:46:52PaulJamBobPanesar: concerning your problem with the x5 and CF card, maybe the bootloader is too old. CF support was added on
22:46:52PaulJam2008-03-09 and if your bootloader was built before that date it could be the reason for it to not work.
22:47:34saratogais there someway to make these messages print which file they're refering to ?
22:47:36saratoga"make[1]: *** No rule to make target "

22:51:10pixelmaPaulJam, BobPanesar: the latest Iaudio bootloaders (v4) were released March 18th (check
22:52:35BobPanesarPaulJam: I compiled the bootloader from build r17428 and the X5 did attempt to read from the CF card. It had failed on multiple tries complaining the the .rockbox folder could not be found. The folder was definetly there as i had RARed it from the 20gb HDD and unarchived it into the CF card.

22:56:23BobPanesarPaulJam: After bootloader update on the X5 and multiple attemps, a couple did finally launch rockbox, but when exploring the file folders, they appeared to be concatennated with weird characters. All content in the folder were also unreadable. I'm guessing that perhaps the X5 corrupted the data.

22:58:33BobPanesarthe same CF card has since been used on a 1st gen ipod mini and an iriver h320. Both DAPs are functioning properly. I was really hoping that the CF mod would function on the X5. Smaller capacity CFs have worked in the past.
22:59:14BigBambiDhraakellian: yes, it works, but because there is a bug that can potentially corrupt data, it isn't yet ready to be enabled
22:59:46BigBambi(although IIUC the bug is in the ata driver, not the usb stuff)
22:59:57Dhraakellianpondering getting a microSD card and wondering whether I should hold out for a larger-capacity microSDHC
23:00:10saratogacould someone tell me about /bootloader/Makefile?
23:00:13BobPanesarat any rate, I'm using the h320 DAP with a 32GB CF card ... works quite well.
23:00:18saratogai'm not sure what all that stuff in there does
23:00:27saratogado i actually need any of that for the sim?
23:00:43Bagdersaratoga: no
23:01:16*BobPanesar concurs with Bagder
23:01:32Dhraakelliangiven that the OF doesn't support SDHC on the e200v1. If Rockbox USB file transfer were expected in the near future, I'd get a 4GB+ microSDHC card and wait it out

23:02:30saratogabut if i have to deal with the crap in the /bootloader/ folder, maybe thats a bad idea

23:03:16BigBambiDhraakellian: And yes, a card reader will do the job nicely
23:03:32Dhraakellianhow often does the bug occur?
23:03:47BigBambiI have never seen it, others have
23:03:53BigBambino way of telling really
23:04:41Dhraakellianand is it something that you notice right away when it happens, or can you only tell when you go to play a file and discover that it's corrupted?

23:06:44Dhraakellianhow does it show the microSD card? just another device to be mounted?
23:08:03BigBambiDhraakellian: Oh, and there are a few problems with signal quality, hubs may not work properly
23:08:49Dhraakellianor I could just go in for 2 or 3 of the 2GB microSD cards on today's Woot and just use the OF

23:25:40MethoS_why doesn't rockbox show the album art of my flac files? does the art inside the audio file have to have a specific resolution?

23:26:26bluebrotherMethoS_: embedded album art isn't supported.
23:26:31saratogaBagder: i have to grep through the source code to figure out which makefile is erroring out, then fix it, and then run make again
23:26:38saratogatimes about a million times
23:26:51saratogait'd be nice if there was someone i could ask about the process
23:26:56saratogaand whats actually needed
23:27:07MethoS_bluebrother: are there plans to implement this feature?
23:27:22BigBambiMethoS-: nope
23:27:47BigBambiMethoS-: A first step would be to support jpeg decoding in the core, and thus jpeg album art
23:27:55Bagdersaratoga: well, I wrote most of the sim back in the days and I still have a pretty good idea how it hangs together
23:28:03BigBambiMethoS-: One reason is that no-one who wants it has written it
23:28:18MethoS_ok ^^

23:42:02Bagderthe common used to be shared between all sim types
23:42:10Bagderand sdl be sdl-specific
23:42:23saratogaoh the old win32 stuff
23:42:31Bagderyes, we also had an x11 smi
23:42:54saratogaso you envision the current sim remaining unchanged by my project?
23:43:10Bagderpretty much, yes.
23:43:22saratogahow much code duplication is tolerable then?
23:43:37Bagdergood question, I'm not sure...
23:44:04saratogai was plannning to start with an x86 SDL target which in practice would be nearly identical to the sim, except using the target tree and obviously not mimicking any specific target
23:44:43Bagderright, and x86 sdl target will of course be the most similar to the sdl sim
23:45:17saratogai think it would be useful for debugging and also a very useful example file for anyone else who wanted to port the sdl sim to their device
23:46:08Bagderwell, I think that if code duplication becomes a serious issue, we can make some kind of sdl lib with code to be usde by both the sdl sim and actual sdl targets
23:46:16saratogathats a good point
