00:58:39pixelmaeh... if I understand the Rockboy code correctly you can cycle through the scale modes with a key on the recorder pad and with the help of the hold switch on the H100 and the M5 (because it's behind an if that checks for 160x128 and depth ==2) but not somewhere else... e.g. you couldn't do that on the X5 which has the same pad as the M5 but has a colour display, or the H300...

01:00:13pixelmaok, on colour display targets there seems to be an option in the menu, still it sounds weird to me

10:06:15*scorche thinks this is going to be a very busy devcon for many people
10:07:11pondlifeThe bootloaders will likely be built post-DevCon; it's just the outstanding issues need documenting and testing.
10:07:34pondlifeAnd the presence of JTAG-type hardware will be useful, I suspect.
10:07:34scorchepondlife: earlier i remembered the HAVE_VOICE item before...that was your idea, correct?
10:07:57pondlifeHmm, doesn't ring a bell - explain more?
10:08:16pondlifeDo you mean the ability to make a build without voice support?
10:08:27scorcheyes...much like have_tagcache
10:08:48pondlifeI think I used a different #ifdef, so HAVE_VOICE is not familiar to me... but I may have just forgotten
10:09:00scorchepondlifeI added PLAYBACK_VOICE to try and help modularise playback.c..
10:09:21pondlifeIt was just a way of trying to debug playback by removing voice from the equation.
10:09:23scorchei found the resulting conversation, but not the one that spurred it
10:09:41scorchewould it be very helpful in debugging playback?

10:37:13pixelmapondlife: it works on M5 but (I think due to the newest bootloader) only somewhat. It tries to start but the trigger is to short and it shuts down again - I get the same with the newest bootloader if I push the power switch for a too short time, wasn't the case before
10:37:29pixelmas/to short/too short
10:37:51pondlifeI guess a new bootloader with the patch should work?
10:38:09pixelmaI think that's a separate "problem"
10:39:25amiconnNo, it's not
10:40:06amiconnThe iaudio bootloader now checks the state of the ON buttons, and if it finds neither one pressed (or the appropriate hold switch engaged), shuts down again
10:40:23amiconnIt will need special handling of alarm to make it work

12:01:54pondlifeThe hard disk had spun up, so I suspect it was buffering.

12:09:04Nico_Ppondlife: hmm, this might've happened to me too... I have no idea what could be causing it though
12:10:16pondlifeMe neither, just thought you might have some input.
12:10:36pondlifeRace condition between buffering and something else I guess.
12:10:41pondlifeBut rare-ish.
12:12:26PaulJampondlife: i could imagine that it confuses users when there is an alarm option but it doesn't work with the official bootloader.
12:12:57pondlifeTrue, but the bootloader update will be coming soon now, and I think we need this in before it's built.
12:13:47pondlifeMr Chicken, meet Mr Egg
12:15:07PaulJamwell, has the cause for the crashes with some harddrives on H300 been identified? or how are you so sure that there will be new bootloaders soon?

12:15:50pondlifeI'm not sure, but I don't think it's worth holding up progress for.
12:16:05pondlifeAs long as the old bootloader still works, of course.
12:16:59pondlifeThere are so many problems with the v5 H300 bootloader, it really MUST get fixed...:)
12:19:26pondlifeI suppose I could commit the patch but not include the setting. :/
12:20:15 Join [CBR]Unspoken|w [0] (n=cbr@
12:20:22pixelmabtw. I found the alarm setting screen a bit unintuitive. Couldn't it (re)use the usual time setting screen?
12:20:43pixelmaor parts of its code
12:21:24pondlifeYes, I guess it should, but that's another job.
12:22:43peturpondlife: otoh, the patch is ready so it can easily be committed when the bootloader is fixed and ready for release
12:22:50pixelmathough the current way is a bit quicker
12:23:23pondlifepetur: OK, but will whoever builds the official bootloader remember to include the patch..?
12:23:39pondlifeI guess I can just remind them.
12:23:43peturdoes the patch modify the bootloader?
12:23:56pondlifeNot directly
12:24:12*petur thought the svn bootloader already had alarm support
12:25:04pondlifeI just supposed that the bootloader uses the rtc_check..() functions, which are updated
12:25:59pondlifeAlso, will the bootloader include the checks unless HAVE_RTC_ALARM is set - I'd think not.
12:27:16PaulJamthe bootloader from the CFModGide page (which is afaik based on SVN and doesnt include that patch) boots on alarm.
12:27:57peturthe CFMod bootloader was just plain SVN with my CF changes applied
12:29:22*pondlife goes to look
12:30:15pondlifeI'll try the latest vanilla SVN I guess.
12:30:23pondlifebootloader, I mean
12:30:24peturshould work
12:30:48pondlifeIs it your 80GB drive that doesn't like SVN ?
12:30:59pondlife(i.e. the same drive I have...)
12:31:22peturbut I've read at least two reports from people having similar issues, so it's not just my drive
12:31:33pondlifeAnd not just 80GB drives.
12:31:44peturand they did not have 80GB disks
12:31:53PaulJami have a MK4007GAL and there it crashes 50% of the time too.
12:31:58peturin fact, those were CF users I think
12:32:29pondlifepetur: Didn't you already try drive/device swaps?
12:32:35peturas far as I can tell, it *always* crashes in thread.c code

12:35:33PaulJampetur: i still have the old 20GB drive of my h300 lying aroung, would it help if i would check that with the SVN bootloader to see if the problem are related to the harddrive or the device itself?

12:37:24peturI tried various combinations myself, and only the 80GB disk with my h340 fails, other combinations always work
12:38:24pondlifeFun. Sounds similar the the USB bootloader situation. Works fine for some devices, never works on others, and works 50% of the time on some.

12:53:13peturbut I'm catching up with work so things will start getting better
12:54:44pixelmapondlife: the patch breaks those target's manuals (looks like it needs a little tweaking in the platform file) due to the automatic parsing of the lang's features.txt into options that can be used in the manual
12:55:21pondlifeUrgh, I still can't build manuals here... must fix that (or get the VMWare out again).

Now in the alarm setting screen I see it very often again but it seems only there because it doesn't fail the "play bubbles test"
13:31:29pondlifeHmm, so the pcf changes have hurt the M5 keyboard driver?

17:19:10wpyhhi all
17:19:35wpyhI've finished my second round of iPod runtime testing, and have updated the IpodRuntime page
17:20:03wpyhRB gets 21h 30min, while the OF gets 22h 30min
17:20:06wpyhthat's pretty close
17:21:42wastrelruntime testing takes a long time
17:21:55wpyhcomparing with other peoples' results, I think the best improvement that CF card takes comes to RB
17:22:11wpyhthe OF does at least 20 straight hours with the HD and with the CF
17:22:52markunwpyh: nice results
17:22:55wpyhwastrel: yes, but luckily I have a video and a nano, so I can listen to the nano while the video sits in my drawer
17:23:25wpyhmarkun: :)
17:25:49wpyhso, I think we can close the remaining 1 hour gap by: 1) using the dma hardware, which I think would get us ~10-15 mins, 2) optimizing the codec, another ~20-30 mins, 3) optimizing the use of power, like setting the registers correctly for example, another ~20-30 mins, 4) optimizing RB overall some more would give us better results than the OF
17:27:32wpyh*BUT* for most people out there who don't use the CF card mod, I think using the DMA hardware will give the biggest boost
17:27:44wpyhso, anyone volunteering? ;)
17:28:12markunwpyh: you? :)
17:28:27wpyhmarkun: uh...
17:28:28markunbtw, what makes you think it will give such a big boost?
17:28:31wpyhdisclaimer: I'm no expert
17:28:56wpyhwell, it's just a "not-so-wild" guess actually
17:29:14wpyhbecause I don't have battbench results for the 80 GB hdd
17:29:35wpyhlet's compare another user's results then
17:29:57wpyhthere's this one with "16h 49min" on a 60GB ipod video with RB
17:30:19wpyhI'd say 60 GB and 80 GB models don't differ by much for the battery runtime
17:30:53LambdaCalculus37Some reports have said that the 80GB models get just a *little* more runtime, but who knows?
17:31:12wpyhmy result with RB is 22h 00min and 21h 30min, so there's about 5h difference
17:31:25wpyhbut my result is with the CF card, not with the hdd
17:31:31wpyhthen, compare the OF runtimes
17:31:58 Join toens [0] (
17:32:28wpyhthat user reported around 21h 30min when his ipod was not so old (batteries wear out), with the hdd, while mine is 22h 30min with the CF, so the difference is just 1 hour
17:33:13wpyhLambdaCalculus37: well, I think that's more of a battery age issue :p

17:33:44markunThere are attachments on the wiki main page again. I wonder how that happens every time.
17:33:46wpyhLambdaCalculus37: not that I dismiss those reports though :p
17:34:01LambdaCalculus37I would love to get a ZIF-to-CF adapter for my iPod video. :)
17:34:18*wpyh hands LambdaCalculus37 one
17:34:20markunwpyh: ideally you would do another runtime test with a HDD, do you still have it?
17:34:23LambdaCalculus37I also have this old busted 4G greyscale that's just screaming for a CF card.
17:34:33*LambdaCalculus37 wishes he could just get one via IRC ;)
17:34:42wpyhyes, I still have the hdd since I haven't found a buyer for it yet ;)
17:34:52wpyhI will test it after my exams (20/6)
17:35:30wpyhLambdaCalculus37: I think there are sellers on ebay
17:35:48wpyhI've put some info in the CFModGuide :)
17:37:00wpyhmarkun: looking at the attachment, it could be part of RB
17:37:08wpyhmaybe there's a bug in the wiki software?
17:37:39markunwpyh: yes, that's what I think
17:38:12wpyhwe have to wait for wiki admins to fix/patch it then

17:49:39wpyhand you can't compare different types of players
17:49:49BigBambiespecially as a lot of them are in assembly already
17:50:03BigBambiwpyh: It is just a valid as your meaningless guesses
17:51:02wpyhBigBambi: the codec being in assembly doesn't make it optimal ;)
17:51:49BigBambino, but it generally makes it faster than C (not always)
17:51:50markunBigBambi: well, if switching from HDD to CF makes a bigger impact to runtime in rockbox than the OF it's not such a 'meaningless guess'

17:57:10wpyhBigBambi: you mean the small gains / portions of the 1 hour difference? it's a very rough estimate, but basically: 1. the disk would be out of the picture, since DMA with CF won't gain much; 2. the rest is split quite evenly between codec optimization and power usage

19:56:51leachim6I'm sure that you guys are tired of getting this question
19:56:56leachim6can I run rockbox on a 5g iPod ?
19:57:01leachim6not a 5.5 ... an original 5g
19:57:32scorche| the front page should indicate
19:58:02leachim6is there a gui installer for linux ?
19:58:13LambdaCalculus37There's Rockbox Utility.
19:58:23domonokyleachim6: yes, rbutil its in the wiki..
19:59:14leachim6can you link me to the faq ... I'm sure these questions I'm about to ask have been asked hundreds of times
19:59:24bluebrotherleachim6: I'd suggest you check
19:59:26 Join Buschel [0] (
19:59:49bluebrother(and that's rather easy to find: follow the white rabbit ... errr link labelled "manual")
20:01:14leachim6so bottom line ... can I brick my iPod with this ?
20:01:53domonokyrockbox recommended way of bricking an ipod is a Hammer, use it with gusto :-)
20:02:14domonokyipods are nearly unbrickable (by software)
20:02:33bluebrotherdomonoky: you missed the quotation marks ;-)
20:02:59*domonoky assumed this quote is under GPL :-)
20:03:01leachim6domonoky, that's encouraging
20:03:10leachim6is there a way to restore my iPod on linux ?
20:03:16bluebrotherleachim6: worst case is that you'll loose all your data on the Ipod though that is quite unlikely
20:03:55domonokyleachim6: there is a "ManualRestore- howto" page in the wiki, which you can use under Linux..
20:04:21leachim6bluebrother, you should have your music backed up ...
20:04:36bluebrotherleachim6: it didn't happen to me ;-)
20:04:45leachim6It's happened to me
20:04:50bluebrotherbut backups are a good idea anyway
20:04:50leachim6that's why I backup my music now :)
20:07:45leachim6so what's the difference between Rockbox and iPod Linux ... any relation ?
20:07:49leachim6IS rockbox linux ?
20:08:10bluebrotherRockbox uses code from IPL but it's a system of its own
20:08:15leachim6so it's completely "from the ground up"
20:08:28leachim6is it more efficient than linux on the iPod ?
20:08:37leachim6i always thought booting a linux kernel on the iPod was kind of overkill
20:08:48bluebrotherRockbox goal was to be a music player while IPL wanted to run linux on the ipod
20:09:03leachim6Also...I've heard many more success stories from Rockbox than I have from iPod linux
20:09:12leachim6and it runs doom ... so what else do you need right :)
20:09:16pixelmaand Rockbox didn't start on Ipods
20:09:23bluebrotherwho needs doom?
20:09:33LambdaCalculus37We need music, now Doom. ;)
20:09:38Horschtbluebrother, it is generaly a thing
20:09:48bluebrotherRockbox started with "old" archos players using special hardware to decode the audio
20:10:05bluebrotherHorscht: remove doom! (one more situation where I can say this ;-)
20:10:18FOADDoom metal FTW.
20:10:33bluebrotherremembers me ... I haven't installed the wad on my new toy :)
20:10:34Horschti don't realy see the point of removing it, I never used it though
20:10:43leachim6in linux ... my iPod is showed as havin 2 partitions ... sdd1 and sdd2 ... sdd2 is the data partition , what's the other one ?
20:10:56bluebrotherthe firmware partition
20:10:57Horschtsystem partition
20:11:05leachim6what FS is that ?
20:11:13bluebrotherit's used by the Apple firmware and bootloader.
20:11:23bluebrotherit doesn't use a filesystem.
20:11:28leachim6so it's not an FS ... hmm
20:11:42leachim6does rockbox modify that partition ?
20:11:46bluebrotheror at least no usual filesystem (not 100% what it really is ... I _think_ it's just binary data)
20:12:02bluebrotheryes. The bootloader is located there and therefore it needs to get modified
20:12:17leachim6there is no plaintext that I can find in /dev/sdd1
20:12:23leachim6so I think it's just a binary blob
20:12:34bluebrotherbut you can uninstall the Rockbox bootloader without problems. In case you have issues you always can dd the firmware image from apple to that partition and are back again
20:13:27leachim6command for that ?
20:13:49leachim6dd if=/home/user/ipodbackup.blob of=/dev/sdd1 ?
20:13:53bluebrotheruninstalling the bootloader or putting back the apple fw?
20:13:54domonokyleachim6: just use ipodpatcher or rbutil, buth can do this for you.. :-)
20:13:59leachim6wait ... I did that backwards
20:14:30leachim6It just now occurred to me that if = Input File and of= Output File
20:14:44Horschtyes, yes indeed
20:14:50bluebrotherdomonoky: well, there's a slight difference: ipodpatcher undoes the bootloader modifications it did. It doesn't simply overwrite with a new image ;-)
20:15:11domonokyyes, our patchers are smarter then dd :-)
20:15:48leachim6who wrote rbutil!
20:16:21*domonoky and bluebrother :-)
20:16:29domonokyand a few others..

20:16:54leachim6or whatever version it is now
20:17:09bluebrotherI called it "m1" for Milestone ;-)

20:19:33leachim6is there a way I can make it boot into the apple OS by default ?
20:19:48bluebrother"full isntall" in rbutil simply allows you to install themes the same time and also installs the fonts
20:19:55bluebrotherleachim6: no, and this is not wanted.
20:20:02leachim6it is by me ...
20:20:07leachim6would it take a lot of code ?
20:20:17bluebrotherbut it's also not needed. Rockbox shuts down the hardware completely while apple only "sleeps"
20:20:31leachim6wait ... it will let me shutdown my iPod
20:20:33leachim6finally !
20:20:40leachim6lol ... what was apple thinking with that
20:20:41bluebrotherdue to this you need to hard reset the Ipod to go back to Rockbox. So there is really no need to boot AppleOS first.
20:20:53bluebrotherwell, it starts faster ...
20:20:54leachim6is there a way I can get a choice on boo t?
20:21:11leachim6bluebrother, yeah ... but I come back a while later and it's dead
20:21:26leachim6when I click install themes it says no themes found
20:21:31bluebrotherexcept if you use IPL's Loader2, but that is completely unsupported by us.
20:21:40bluebrotherwhat Ipod do you have? Video?
20:21:57domonokyleachim6: the themes for ipod5g are disabled in rbutil, you have to download it manually..
20:22:01bluebrotherthen this is correct. Those have been disabled on the server due to bandwith reasons
20:22:15leachim6can I still use rbutil if I download them manually ?
20:22:29leachim6domonoky, how come you guys don't use sourceforge ?
20:22:32bluebrotheryes, but you can't use it for installation.
20:22:36Buschelwpyh: your CF-mod shows that HDD needs about 5-6mA over the CF-modded hardware −− more than i thought. as users of the OF (i never used it) stated that buffering in OF is about 2x faster, i would assume that DMA could bring up to 2-3mA savings. this equals 1,5-2 hours
20:22:36leachim6some weird ethical reason
20:22:56bluebrotherbut installation is rather simple. Just unzip the zip file to the root of your player.
20:22:57leachim6so when I click install doom , that goes on the data partition right ?
20:22:58domonokyleachim6: sourceforge is so slow, in the beginning rockbox was on sourceforge..
20:23:06leachim6domonoky, yeah ... but it's free
20:23:10 Nick fxb is now known as fxb__ (
20:23:12leachim6pretty fast for me
20:23:33leachim6I have to close rbutil before I unmount my iPod right
20:23:35leachim6'cause it's using it
20:24:03domonokyleachim6: no doom goes to the data partition, not firmware, its just a file at the right place..
20:24:14leachim6I just said that
20:24:20leachim6"so when I click install doom , that goes on the data partition right ?"
20:24:35bluebrotherno need to unmount −− the file system isn't locked.
20:24:48Buschelwpyh: another thing is that RB can switch off the power supply, OF does not (from my measurements). so, the difference in runtime between OF and RB is even higher than you have measured. if that is mainly based upon codec we definately have some work to do :)
20:24:49bluebrotherit doesn't hurt though ;-)
20:25:35Buschelbtw, did anyone ever make measurements of mp3-decoded files via lineout and compared OF to RB output?
20:26:07leachim6can rockbox play video ?
20:26:17Buschelwith special files (higher frequencies cut) we might see some difference of the decoders quality... at least it's worth a try
20:26:34bluebrotheryes. See
20:26:42domonokyleachim6: you should really read the manual... :-)
20:27:14bluebrotherthe IpodFAQ wiki page is also an interesting read I gues ...
20:27:41Buschelregarding codec precision: maybe higher noise floor or some residual peaks in the spectrogram could be observed

20:53:23MarcGuayLambdaCalculus37: Pretty sad really, I'm feeling a bit overwealmed by the code structure. Rockbox is a real monster.
20:55:16LambdaCalculus37MarcGuay: I think you may be interested in FS #9096. It's a little extra bit of code from shotofadds that *may* display the NAND ID.
20:57:02LambdaCalculus37And for your hard work...

21:22:15livingdaylighti was shopping for an mp3 player
21:22:34vertic23my X5V is not charging anymoren through power cable... but only with usb plugged :/ what can I do to fix this?
21:22:47livingdaylightall we have here on the high street in the uk, it seems, is creative zen, ipod, and or something
21:23:04vertic23try the interweb!
21:23:22LambdaCalculus37And we have eBay, where you can find a Rockbox-compatible player.
21:23:56livingdaylighti was looking for an iAudio but they're not sold on the highstreets anymore here... i wanted that coz it plays .flac out of the box which none of the other do, plus its awesome audio quality i hear...

21:26:01MarcGuaylivingdaylight: has good reviews.
21:26:07livingdaylighti was on rockbox website and it seems it doesn't run on creative zen, is that right?
21:26:08vertic23and is recharging through USB slower than by power cable?!

21:56:15MarcGuayPressing the buttons on the c100 causes changes in GPIOA, some of which are unique (menu/power, select, hold) while others are not (volume up/down and dir-down are the same, and left-up-right dirs are the same as well). Is this abnormal or does it just mean that the details are elsewhere?

22:19:16MarcGuaylinuxstb: Give it a good glaring-at.
22:19:26linuxstbHave you tried what shotofadds suggested in the forum - trying to just write blocks of colour to the screen?
22:19:57MarcGuaylinuxstb: Honestly, I didn't know where to begin to try such a thing.
22:20:22linuxstbWhat about just writing a single line of text?
22:20:51linuxstbThe GraphicsAPI wiki page may give you a clue. You could test it out in the sim (e.g. by playing with a plugin) to get the hang of the graphics API.
22:20:53wastreldoes the cpu have text primitives?
22:21:01wastrelor gpu i guess what do i know.
22:21:02MarcGuaylinuxstb: So modify the show_debug_screen() method to just printf a line?
22:21:11linuxstbwastrel: What cpu/gpu?
22:21:19linuxstbMarcGuay: Yes.
22:21:30linuxstbe.g. just printf("Hello world!")
22:21:33wastreli dunno :] don't know anything about the hardware on these things.
22:21:51linuxstbWhat things? Rockbox runs on about 20 different things
22:22:09MarcGuaylinuxstb: Well, if I comment out everything but the scrolling line it displays it, but in the same "first line" position as in the phot.
22:22:32linuxstbAnd do you get the corruption at the top at the same time?
22:22:53*amiconn wonders where that photo is
22:23:28*Bagder blogged it just now since the progress is cool...
22:23:41MarcGuaylinuxstb: and I don't see anything else in the function that would screw it up... Corruption = yes, always. Even if nothing is displayed. Let me try and clear the whole function and see if it still happens.
22:24:23linuxstbMarcGuay: Did you modify the lcd_update_rect function, or is that identical to the c200?
22:24:28Bagderbtw, linux journal has a 6 minute video with rockbox
22:24:44amiconnI think it's just an lcd controller offset
22:25:09amiconnThe controller is obviously able to drive a larger panel than the one actually connected (quite common thing)
22:25:13LloreanBagder: It looks like there's a recovery mode for the V2 Sansas now.
22:25:20amiconnDo you know what controller that is?
22:25:32BagderLlorean: just somewhat "physical" ;-)
22:25:33linuxstbI forget the name, but it's the same (or very similar) to the c200
22:25:35MarcGuaylinuxstb: I left it the same.
22:25:51bertrikLlorean, \o/
22:25:51LloreanBagder: Well, better than "none" :)
22:26:03MarcGuayamiconn: S6B33B2
22:26:03amiconnWhat res is the panel?
22:26:08LloreanHopefully it won't be needed often, or by many, anyway
22:26:45MarcGuayamiconn: 128x64
22:26:46LloreanBagder: Wow, he's got a lot of unsupported players in that video. :)
22:27:03amiconnHmm, and the controller can drive up to 132x162
22:27:19amiconnMarcGuay: Do you have the driver code somewhere to take a look?
22:27:46MarcGuayamiconn: Should be in one of my last posts in the c200 forum thread.

22:30:31linuxstbamiconn: The init code is from the c100 OF, but the lcd_update_rect() function is a copy of the c200
22:30:43amiconnSo the problem is solved...
22:30:59MarcGuayamiconn: Work your magic.
22:31:06amiconnThe c200 has the panel at offset 26 (0x1a), while the c100 obviously has it at 0
22:31:32amiconnRemove all the .. + 0x1a in the update functions for the y coord
22:31:58*petur whatched the review and thinks it is crap
22:32:52amiconnbertrik: Urgh, stone age...
22:34:06MarcGuayamiconn: Nice, getting a full screen now. Still too many lines, though, which I guess is the reason Count is getting pushed up to the top.
22:34:26amiconnToo many lines in what way?
22:35:14MarcGuayamiconn: The debug screen has more info lines than the screen can display, so the last one is looping up to the top and covering the scrolling line.
22:35:48amiconnHmm. Iirc the debug screen just cuts lines not fitting onto the screen...
22:36:14amiconnWhich screen is that? Ports?
22:36:37linuxstbamiconn: MarcGuay is talking about a "debug" screen in bootloader/telechips.c
22:36:46MarcGuayamiconn: Let me just double check that I'm not pulling this out of my rear.
22:36:56amiconnOk, bootloader printf() does wrap to the top
22:37:09amiconn(and afaik the bootloader has no scrolling)

22:41:26linuxstbIt's not really changing the bootloader, as no bootloader exists...
22:41:38amiconnThen you know what's most important next...
22:42:01amiconnSomewhat reminds me of the early stages of the Ondio port...
22:42:22linuxstbI just find it easier to test/debug drivers in the bootloader.
22:42:33amiconnI mean the driver...
22:42:52linuxstbYes, NAND driver is obviously top of my list. I just have no rockbox time ATM :(
22:44:25linuxstbBut a few people seem to be hacking on tcc77x devices now, and shotofadds has started a NAND driver (blindly...)
