00:17:10bertrikxqtftqx, I don't have enough information to look into that bug, apparently the 'multifont' patch added some arguments to the font_load and font_reset methods, but I don't know what argument exactly

00:27:13MU{lappy}so, it looks like the PRNG used in rockbox is mersenne twister... it also looks like there's a SIMD-based improved version that's faster, even on CPUs w/o actual SIMD instructions, using SWAR. any thought about using SFMT instead of MT?
00:27:51stripwax_is PRNG really used in performance-critical code?
00:27:54stripwax_(in rockbox)
00:28:42 Quit sarixe ("(EE) Failed to load "quit" module")
00:29:02MU{lappy}it is if i ever get to porting sbagen. also, SFMT apparently has better properties w/ regard to randomness
00:29:06xqtftqxbertrik: what do you mean, yeah it adds a argument to the font_load to tell it to load the diffrent font
00:29:13MU{lappy}"SFMT is roughly twice faster than the original Mersenne Twister, and has a better equidistibution property, as well as a quicker recovery from zero-excess initial state."
00:29:25xqtftqxOh, he left
00:31:24MU{lappy}anyway, white-noise and pink-noise generation eats a lot of random numbers - one per sample for white, about two per sample for pink
00:32:25stripwax_MU{lappy} - you can probably still use a very simple rng for generating coloured noise, and there are simpler ones than mersenne for that
00:34:03MU{lappy}maybe i should compare code size for the two versions. if it doesn't bloat code much, or need more state, i don't see any reason not to replace MT w/ SFMT?

00:37:46stripwax_not sure, rockbox records the random seed for shuffle so replacing the rng means you recover a different sequence. probably not such a big deal

00:40:02mcuelenaereterrence1019: (for the logs, if you would ever read them) about those links you gave me, they are already in the wiki
00:41:18xqtftqxHuh, theres a euroconverter plugin?
00:41:58stripwax_xqtftqx - is that a statement or a question? :)
00:42:19xqtftqxquestion sorta, i see it here, does it rs?un on any target
00:42:27xqtftqxdoes it run on any targets?*
00:42:45amiconnIt runs on the Player (only)
00:43:17 Join Schmogel [0] (
00:43:19xqtftqx"The Player"? Sorry, but which DAPs does it come with?
00:43:30 Join tessarakt [0] (
00:43:31Lloreanxqtftqx: "The Player" is a specific DAP
00:43:36LloreanThe Archos Jukebox Player.
00:43:37bluebrotherThe player is an archos target
00:43:53xqtftqxOh, why only the "Player"
00:44:17bluebrother'cause archos named it that way?
00:44:19scorche|sh...because it is called the Archos Player?
00:44:23amiconnIt's written in a somewhat charcell specific way
00:44:42amiconnIt's also there to make up for the lack of many other plugins on it
00:44:43*pixelma wonders why there's a need for an euroconverter still anyways
00:45:21xqtftqxChould i add it to run on other daps?
00:45:23amiconnIt became pretty pointless anyway over time. The euro has been around for > 7 years now (iirc)
00:46:16amiconnSorry, > 6 years
00:46:18bertriksince 1 jan 2002
00:46:51xqtftqxBut chould i tell it to build with the gigabeat?
00:46:58xqtftqxand whould it work]
00:47:36bluebrotherthe maths would work :)
00:47:39Lloreanxqtftqx: Try it?
00:48:02xqtftqxIm trying now
00:48:35 Join einhirn_ [0] (
00:48:44xqtftqxIll probly change the currency to dollars though
00:48:45stripwax_It sounds fairly pointless, and could just be removed from all DAPs, rather than adding to all builds.

00:49:09xqtftqxWhould be nice if it was Dollars rather then euros
00:49:18stripwax_Given that exchange rates change all the time, it's just as easy to use the calculator plugin, no?
00:49:46pixelmaxqtftqx: but the dollar has an ever changing exchange rate...
00:50:15gevaertsIs that a problem ? A random generator should be able to handle that
00:50:29*stripwax_ splutters
00:50:40xqtftqxpixelma: Sorry, confused for a second
00:51:12xqtftqxWow, im looking now and a whole lot of patchs have been added
00:51:39 Quit stripwax (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
00:51:43xqtftqxWait, why isnt there a bmp viewer?
00:51:53xqtftqxIt chould be done as simple as 12 minutes
00:52:08pixelmathen do it
00:52:09*gevaerts invites xqtftqx to spend 12 minutes on it
00:52:21*B4gder starts the timer
00:52:24xqtftqxAs soon as im done with this build
00:52:33pixelmalame excuses
00:52:34*B4gder adds 4 minutes to the timer
00:53:16stripwax_you can load bmp into rockpaint, or backdrop
00:53:30xqtftqxExactly the code is all there
00:53:32*dionoea was about to mention rockpaint too
00:53:49stripwax_Um, I meant, it can already do it.. why would you need another viewer?
00:54:00 Join petur [50] (n=petur@rockbox/developer/petur)
00:54:06gevaertsAnd actually there is a bmp viewer. It even does slideshows. All you need to do is name them cover.bmp
00:54:10Lloreanstripwax_: To be fair, it'd be nice to have the slideshow function BMP, but that just means jpegviewer needs to be imageviewer
00:54:13dionoeaThe only thing rockpaint can't do is scale images
00:54:15Lloreangevaerts: Quite true
00:54:34dionoeaAnd yeah, missing slide show stuff
00:54:36stripwax_Llorean - mm, but now there's a photo gallery patch..
00:54:37xqtftqxYeah, that chould be where part of the bmp resize app comes in
00:54:42pixelmait only works for greyscale + colour targets
00:55:19pixelmaa bmp viewer could be able to work on monochrome displays too with the help of the greylib
00:55:39pixelmabut that might take a little longer than 12 minutes...
00:55:49*stripwax_ smiles
00:55:52B4gderwant me to add another 4? ;-)
00:56:04*dionoea thought that rockpaint only worked on colour displays, not greyscale ones
00:56:15xqtftqxI was saying a normal viewer with resize nor grayscale support
00:57:03PaulJamLlorean: it is good that you asked me for any remaining major bugs, i just rememebered that i had a freeze issue that i wanted to try to reproduce in the official build.
00:57:06pixelmadionoea: yes, but album art works on greyscale too though it just uses the 4 grey
00:57:14Genre9mp3B4gder: it's all a matter of minutes... how many will eventualy be needed for 3.0? :P
00:57:42B4gdermore than 4?
00:57:54xqtftqxlets say 400
00:58:05xqtftqxlets say 4000*
00:59:25LloreanPaulJam: Let me know if you manage to, and I'll add it to one of the lists (doesn't sound critical if we don't have others screaming about it too, but we'll see and there are plenty of other lists of bugs after the criticals are done)
00:59:57xqtftqxfor a bmp viewer you chould take out the zoom,and slideshow and add it to rockpaint with the painting
01:00:17xqtftqxtake the zoom and slideshow from jpeg*
01:00:23 Quit goffa (Remote closed the connection)
01:00:37Lloreanxqtftqx: Actually you can't take the zoom from jpeg. But feel free to post a patch.
01:00:59xqtftqxOk, ill work on it a little later
01:01:27PaulJamLlorean: it seems to be reproduceable, but it requires some switching between db and filebrowser which you usually don't do so often.
01:01:47 Quit stripwax_ ("Miranda IM! Smaller, Faster, Easier.")
01:01:57PaulJami'll just open a task and let others decide about the severity.
01:02:01LloreanPaulJam: So probably on the list of "it'd be really nice to see this gone" (in my mind every freeze is major, but if it's not likely to interfere with several users, not dead critical)
01:02:06LloreanYeah, open a task. :)
01:02:33xqtftqxWhats the test_codec plugin
01:02:54B4gderwhat do you think it is?
01:03:29Genre9mp3What is going to happen with "GPLv2 only" code in Rockbox? Will get rewritten? If that's the case, is that intended to happen before 3.0?
01:03:29B4gderI think the name is quite revealing
01:03:45B4gderGenre9mp3: yes, and hopefully
01:03:50LloreanGenre9mp3: Yes it will be rewritten. No it's not a blocker for 3.0, though it'd be nice.

01:07:47B4gderwe use the regular rockbox currency instead
01:08:56Domonokyso how much beer is needed till 3.0 :-)
01:09:29scorche|shthat depends on who is drinking it ;)
01:09:32Llorean"All of it"
01:10:26bluebrotherDomonoky: do you know the upper limit for the drive number on w32?
01:11:28Genre9mp3Do we have a new codename for 3.0 or is it still "Mayday"?
01:11:41LloreanWe haven't yet decided.
01:12:12LloreanThough it's not particularly appropriate here.
01:12:39Genre9mp3Llorean: indeed... 3.0 was originally planned for 1st of May 2006, right?
01:13:09Domonokybluebrother: correct
01:13:19LloreanGenre9mp3: Something like that
01:13:33B4gderthat means we won't make it to the 26 months delayed anniversary
01:13:56LloreanOnce we can do a feature freeze, we can look for a holiday-based codename
01:14:18LloreanMaybe whoever comes up with the best codename gets automatic immunity from being stuck as Release Coordinator
01:14:37B4gdernow we're talking
01:15:04gevaertsSo who decides what the best codename is ?
01:15:16LloreanPublic vote.
01:15:33Genre9mp3gevaerts: RSB?
01:15:40*pixelma thoght the steering board...
01:15:49pixelma*thought too
01:15:53LloreanNo, they might be potential RCs.

03:35:13jr50i dont understand
03:36:35jr50so is there anyway to fix this
03:36:46MU{lappy}i am saying that WPS changed recently, and it will break old WPS files. there is a script linked in the revision notes for converting old WPS files.
03:38:12jr50how do you use the script
03:39:45MU{lappy}looks like r17763 changed something, too
03:40:28MU{lappy}and you run the script with perl
03:40:38jr50perl ?
03:41:54MU{lappy}this is getting into off-topic territory, really. perl is a scripting language, use google to find out how to get a copy for whatever OS you're using. or convert the WPS by hand in a text editor.

03:51:47MU{lappy}ok, i see that some of playlist.c relies on being able to produce the "same" shuffled list again by using a saved seed... so, yeah, changing the PRNG might make such cases load "wrong". i'll look at just using something simple/fast for PRNG inside pink noise gen
03:58:25MU{lappy}i see a few different places that use various combinations of tick or time to seed the PRNG... would it maybe be a good idea to implement one auto_srand(), or perhaps to have srand generate a seed when a certain magic value is passed, 0 for example?
03:59:32 Part wastrel ("l8r")
04:03:37MU{lappy}to replace multiple differing chunks of code w/ calls to one function?
04:04:58MU{lappy}if you grep the source tree, there are ~40-50 calls to srand, most of which have their own code to produce a seed
04:07:31MU{lappy}a lot use current_tick, some try to generate it from current time
04:08:27MU{lappy}fireworks appears to re-seed w/ current_tick * i for each explosion it sets off
04:09:37MU{lappy}erm, for each point in the explosion, actually, looking more closely
04:12:43JdGordonok, so whats the real problem? everything doing it its own may makes it more random
04:15:46MU{lappy}i don't think it seriously effects performance or function, but it's code duplication, and i just don't see a reason not to have exactly one formula that's implemented in one place and called as needed.
04:16:27MU{lappy}they're all using some sort of unpredictable variable based on the passage of time, so having multiple implementations doesn't actually do anything to improve randomness.
04:18:10MU{lappy}i'm not looking to step on anybody's toes, it's just something where i think a small improvement could easily be made, that i happened to stumble across.
04:21:52JdGordonI dont think its really worth the effort

04:35:59MU{lappy}more of a would-anybody-consider-applying-it than a would-somebody-else-write-it question
04:37:35JdGordonwell... the other thing is we try to have POSIX like functinos where posible.. and I guess srand/rand fit into that also..
04:39:43MU{lappy}and maintaining a familiar interface sounds like a good enough reason to me, then, i won't bother.

04:41:57MU{lappy}the only other thing about the RNG i might think about improving is offering an alternate seed function w/ larger seed sizes. that would mainly benefit shuffling, since it doesn't take a very long list of items to have more than 2**32 possible orderings, and therefore orderings that can never happen because of seed size
04:42:15MU{lappy}but *that* is a much tougher job, because you'd need a good source for large seeds, then.

07:50:34LloreanThat was one of the proposed ideas.
07:51:05LloreanBut not a final decision or anything. Just a "bookmarks could contain a playlist so that you always have a list of the files to resume"
07:51:13JdGordonah ok then
07:51:58LloreanThe main consensus was "it needs to work better, and not be different, as users shouldn't have to care if it's a static or dynamic playlist, or if they've inserted songs from another folder, or if they used database for some/all"

10:54:57PaulJamLlorean: i was just wondering, what is your opinion about FS #8748 concerning 3.0? i could imagine that this could happen during regular use when someone just forgets to disable partymode (but in the other hand i haven't seen any reports from others about this problem).
10:56:28LloreanPaulJam: Well, the one comment can't reproduce it, but there's probably a decent chance it's actually related to the other playlist weirdness.
10:56:56LloreanOh, misread the comment
10:57:03LloreanBut still, let's see if the other playlist fix fixes it
10:57:05*JdGordon reckons the end of the playlist should disable party mode so that doesnt happen
10:57:06pixelmayay... I "like" the stats plugin change, especially considering that I just updated the documentation last week to say "/me "likes" the stats plugin commit... especially since the addition of "Press Button X to abort counting and exit the plugin. Press any key to quit after counting has finished."... :\
10:57:35LloreanJdGordon: Party mode could be non-persistent across boots, so people never forget it's on.
10:57:46pixelmasorry for that "sentence"
10:57:55PaulJamJdGordon: actually i didn't let the playlist finish, but shut the device down.
10:58:20 Join roolku [0] (n=roolku@
10:58:34JdGordonwell... if there is music being resumed then its OK if its persisted.. but if your going to start up in the menus/browser it shouldnt be
10:58:42JdGordonbut thats not very consistant
10:58:52*pixelma goes for another cup of coffee
10:59:15JdGordonPaulJam: seen the patch for the sleep timer and usb power bug?
10:59:19LloreanJdGordon: Arguably, a party-mode player should reject being shut down.
10:59:46PaulJamJdGordon: yes, but i haven't tried it yet.
11:00:45PaulJamLlorean: but then you'd still have the low batt shutdown
11:00:51JdGordonanyway, that sounds like a bug in the playlist generation code
11:01:16LloreanPaulJam: Yes, but if you can't shut down in party mode, then having party mode not persist across boots makes perfect sense, since it should never be on at boot. ;)
11:01:26LloreanDoesn't mean, though, that current behaviour isn't indicative of a bug. It certainly is.
11:01:36LloreanI just kinda suspect it's in the same family as the current playlist weirdness bug.
11:01:59bluebrotherZagor: the blue bar at the top of the wiki pages is really nice. But the links in it are kinda hard readable due to the blue on blue thingy ... is that intended?
11:02:33Zagorno I'm intending to make them white like in the left menu
11:02:57ZagorI'm not the best with css though. feel free to help.
11:03:38*bluebrother goes taking a look while MinGW creates a break ...
11:04:26PaulJamWell, i don't usually use partymode, so i don't know what the desired behaviour across boots would be. (i actually used it only once to prevent a friend from changing the song and he tried to be smart by restarting the player and selecting another song :) )
11:04:53pixelmaJdGordon: mind updating the stats.tex for the manual then? ;)
11:05:12gevaertspartymode is defined as 'never stop playing, whatever happens'. That somehow implies ignoring shutdown requests
11:05:17LloreanPaulJam: Yeah, "What should party mode do" can be discussed some other time, maybe once we have some people who use it to comment. :)
11:05:44JdGordonpixelma: I can tihnk of one or two other things I'd rather be doing :p
11:05:58JdGordonalso, I cant build the manual here, and dont know latex...
11:06:40Zagoras the author of party mode, I can say I didn't intend for it to be persistent across boots. I thought that would risk causing a lot of grief.
11:07:56pixelmayou would only need to rephrase 1 (or 2 sentences) no latex involved there, setting up the build environment to be able to build manuals is not hard, especially under linux

11:42:02amiconnbertrik: Imo we should also add usb detection to the ipod bootloaders then
11:42:31Lloreanamiconn: I think we should.
11:43:05LloreanI'd like all bootloaders (when practical )to either have bootloader USB or, when USB isn't available to boot some form of disk mode instead of Rockbox.
11:43:54amiconnSame for the 1st 4th gen ipod bootloaders (including minis) and firewire
11:44:17LloreanYes, substitute "USB" with "appropriate means of connection with the host"
11:44:37PaulJamJdGordon: (when you are back) the patch for sleep timer while USB charging seems to work here with my H300.
11:44:41 Join stripwax [0] (
11:44:48JdGordonPaulJam: :) just commited it
11:44:53JdGordontested on my e200 and worked fine
11:45:36amiconnLlorean: There'll be a bit of inconsistency once we add bootloader usb for PP - handle usb in the bootloader, but boot to OF for firewire
11:45:49amiconn(unless we learn how to do firewire ourselves as well)
11:46:19JdGordonis it possible to get the bootloaders to pass their version to the main binary?
11:46:25Lloreanamiconn: Not ideal, but at least it'll be consistent in terms of "if you have a cable plugged in, you don't go into Rockbox itself"
11:46:33 Quit ompaul (Remote closed the connection)
11:46:43bertrikamiconn, I have no idea how the bootloader currently works for ipods, but I really like the way it works now for the sansas
11:47:29amiconnIt boots to rockbox by default, and it detects 2 different buttons for booting either into OF or ipodlinux
11:47:48amiconnNo USB or firewire detection yet

11:48:27 Quit stoffel ("leaving")
11:48:34amiconnSo without rockbox usb it's rather annoying to boot an ipod by plugging usb/fw: Rockbox bootloader boots rockbox, rockbox detects usb/fw, and reboots into diskmode
11:48:42DomonokyJdGordon: yes, rbutil for OSX is one version behind.. but mak
11:49:04Domonokymake sure to build a staticbuild...

13:25:13TyroAn alternative way is to temporarily tell the compiler to accept commands from your build directory (where you wish to build rockbox). This can be done by typing the following into cygwin, after navigating to your build directory export PATH=/usr/local/arm-elf/bin:$PATH

14:12:32Nico_Pdecon guys: which targets are you indending to include in the release?
14:13:05B4gderbasically all that we "support" today I'd say
14:13:25LloreanProbably so, yes.

14:13:38LloreanI don't see any target-specific blockers among them, except maybe the 1G/2G
14:13:46LloreanSince having players you can't turn off might confuse users.
14:13:58Nico_Pdid you discuss the GUI slowness on the 5.5G (and prob. others)?
14:14:17Nico_Pi.e. committing a GUI boost patch before release
14:14:24LloreanIt wasn't even brought up when we were trying to bring up blockers.
14:14:51LloreanWe really only focused on "what HAS to be fixed" leaving "what should be fixed" to be things that individuals care about focusing on.
14:14:56Nico_PI'm not sure it's really a blocker
14:15:01LloreanI don't think it is.
14:15:14LloreanThat being said, it's probably not a bad fix
14:15:38LloreanIt's not idea (in that it'd be better to see if we can solve it with optimization) but it works, and it works _now_

15:51:55wild_oscargood afternoon!
15:52:31wild_oscarI have never tried rockbox, but am curious to know what's the probability of it working on an ipod which seems to be faulty
15:52:40BigBambiwild_oscar: faulty how?
15:53:08wild_oscarie, I was looking at ebay's auctions and saw a lot of faulty ipods there. most of them say they "display an unhappy face logo at boot"
15:53:24BigBambiit is really impossible to say without knowing what the problem is
15:53:36 Join xqtftqx [0] (i=4cbd373c@gateway/web/ajax/
15:54:25wild_oscaron an ebay auction all the info I'll get is, of course, that it's not working and displays an unhappy face
15:54:39BigBambiWell, it is then impossible to say
15:55:06soapThe odds of Rockbox working on a faulty iPod are no greater than the odds of Apple's firmware working on a faulty iPod.
15:55:07wild_oscarBigBambi: does rockbox have a record of working on otherwise useless ipods?
15:55:26BigBambiwild_oscar: If it is a hardware problem, it won't be any difference
15:55:28wild_oscarthat was basically my question
15:55:36PaulJami think you can generally say, that when you can't make the apple firmware run, it's extremely unlikely that you'll be able to mae rockbox run
15:55:43BigBambiIf it isn't a hardware problem, then you should be able to get either to run
15:55:50 Quit xqtftqx (Client Quit)
15:56:11wild_oscarso if it's useless to the point of a person to sell it on ebay for 1 pound, it's probably really useles..
15:56:22soapAnd considering the number of guides out there - the odds of simple Apple firmware corruption being the cause of the unhappy face should be considered quite slim.

20:14:40PaulJamMarcGuay: i'm not sure. i didn't do any skipping (which also made the reproduction very time consuming until the quicker way with only 3 tracks was found)
20:15:49fmlMarcGuay: btw: now that the study mode is documented in the manual, wouldn't it also be good to make it available in the WPS? There is a patch in the tracker, I don't remember the number though.

20:21:06Nico_PI only used 3 tracks to reproduce
20:21:26MarcGuayNico_P: And then jump to the last track and play it all the way through?
20:22:01MarcGuayNico_P: I hate to say it but it's very easy to break playback by just skipping a few tracks quickly...
20:22:03Nico_Pnot even that. I fast forward to a point just before rebuffering occurs
20:22:13MarcGuaySansa e200 if that makes a difference to you...

20:47:43Nico_PReemo: theme compatibility was borken recently, so that may be the cause

21:06:43amiconnMarcGuay: Regarding hardware poweroff and ipods - you can't force a hardware poweroff on ipods, just a hardware reset
21:07:14amiconnThat works for all ipods, but the button combo is different on 1st..3rd gen from the later ones
21:07:45amiconnOn 1st..3rd Gen it's Menu + Play, on the later ones it's Menu + Select
