00:00:34MarcGuayIs it possible to install a dual-bootloader the Gigabeast?

00:02:26MarcGuayAnd if I install the Rockbox only version, I lose the ability to charge?
00:02:40linuxstbAt the moment, yes.
00:03:11MarcGuayAre there any ideas on how to get around this?
00:03:32swearsmarcguay, I have dualboot
00:03:38swearson gigabeat s
00:03:54linuxstbFor dual-booting, we can only rely on third-parties hosting the required OF nk.bin file.
00:04:07linuxstbFor charging, I'm sure that will get implemented at some point.

00:33:17Nico_Pswears: it might be a teeny weeny bit slower with rockbox, but honestly I think it's barely noticeable
00:33:22scorche|shit takes time to spin up the drive
00:33:35swearsno, it really is MUCH slower.
00:33:44swearsthat's the only reason i'm concerned
00:33:51swearsif it was barely slow, I wouldn't really mind
00:34:04scorche|shskip once so the drive spins up, then try skipping a few more should be much faster, yes?
00:34:15swearsdont think so, but let me try again
00:34:35Nico_Pswears: I think you're not doing a fair comparison. you need to make sure the OF does an unbuffered skip too
00:34:47Nico_Pa buffered skip in rockbox and in the OF is instantaneous
00:35:20Nico_Palso be sure to use tracks that don't have silence in the beginning

00:36:34swearsso, when you play a song, it automatically loads the next queued song into the ram?
00:36:59scorche|shwhen you are skipping, you are likely skipping to a track that is not yet buffered, so the drive needs to spin up (which takes time) to buffer it
00:37:18scorche|shswears: it depends on how much space the song takes up
00:37:53swearsbut if i'm not using shuffle, and assuming the tracks from the same album are very close to each other
00:37:59Nico_Pwhen the disk spins up, rockbox buffers as much audio as possible
00:37:59swearsshouldn't that go quite fast?
00:38:04swearsok, i see
00:38:18Nico_Ptrack order or proximity doesn't make a difference
00:38:19scorche|shswears: shuffle doesnt is still one playlist
00:38:45swearsIf i change the skip protection to a small amount, will that leave more room for the next song?
00:38:53swearsin the ram
00:39:00Nico_Pswears: you might want to look at the buffering debug screen to get an idea of what's happenning
00:39:13swearsok, where can I find that?
00:39:21Nico_Pswears: no. that's something else. as much RAM as possible is used
00:39:35scorche|shswears: you might want to try defragmenting your could speed things up if your drive is fragmented

00:43:04Nico_Pan unbuffered skip takes ~3 seconds in both rockbox and the OF
00:43:23swearsok, so I dont have buffered skips

00:44:02Nico_PI have dircache enabled and very few files

00:57:40swearsahh, I see the difference now
00:58:07scorche|shmassiveH: it is an "advertisment" for an unsupported bootloader
00:58:32massiveHscorche|sh, well, it may be unsupported, but it should be in the main tree (the features at least)
00:58:51scorche|shthen put a patch in flyspray and draw attention to that
00:59:16massiveHI'm sorry, I have no idea how to create patches.
00:59:30scorche|shthere are instructions in the wiki
01:00:11massiveHok, but this is something I would like to draw attention to, and putting it here for constructive criticism, is where it should be put, unless this isn't the rockbox irc...
01:00:56scorche|shmassiveH: if you want to draw attention to it and want it in SVN, make a patch and submit it to the tracker as i said

04:49:58sdubois92I copied .rockbox to the ipod, and ran ipodpatcher, and everything went fine, but when i rebooted, i got the standard ipod menu
04:50:56scorchewas there any sort of text between?
04:50:57JdGordondid ipodpatcher say it was successful?
04:51:02sdubois92JdGordon: yes
04:51:09sdubois92[INFO] Bootloader installed successfully.
04:53:03MarcGuaysdubois92: Do you have the hold switch on?

04:53:58scorchesdubois92: well, the bootloader install likely failed silently for some odd reason....could you try using rbutil?
04:54:43MarcGuayI ask because flipping the hold on is how the bootloader hears "I want the Apple firmware".
04:54:59 Quit shadoxx (Remote closed the connection)
04:55:19LloreanWhere did you get iPodPatcher. I thought our current bootloader version was 2.0, not 1.1
04:55:29sdubois92should i just remove the .rockbox, copy it again, unisntall the ipodpatcher and reinstall
04:55:36scorche.rockbox is not the issue
04:55:46scorchethe bootloader is
04:56:04Lloreanscorche: Actually, it might be.
04:56:10sdubois92well, i mounted /dev/sdd2 to copy my .rockbox file, but ipodpatcher installed to /dev/sdd
04:56:15scorcheLlorean: eh?
04:56:25LloreanIf I recall, bootloader 1.1 was after "don't update the screen" but before "it freezes if rockbox.ipod isn't found"
04:56:28sdubois92and when i tried to run ./ipodpatcher /dev/sdd2, it didnt work
04:56:34LloreanIt may be silently not finding rockbox.ipod and defaulting to OF.
04:56:47sdubois92rockbox.ipod is there
04:56:52scorcheLlorean: i would still call that a bootloader is an old bootloader
04:57:12Lloreanscorche: Yeah, but it's both, as if we get him updated he may still not have a validly placed rockbox.ipod
04:57:19Lloreansdubois92: You never answered where you got ipodpatcher from.
04:58:11Lloreansdubois92: That's a very out of date file.
04:58:21LloreanYou should compile your own, or use RBUtil.
04:58:28sdubois92isnt that a gui tool?
04:58:39LloreanBut it's also more up to date.
04:59:14sdubois92can i get the sources and compile myself
04:59:28LloreanI wouldn't have suggested it if you can't...
04:59:30 Quit d-k-t-2 (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
04:59:47sdubois92without the gui
04:59:58LloreanYou can compile an up to date ipodpatcher binary.
05:00:08sdubois92without the gui?
05:00:22MarcGuayLlorean: Did you get my forum PM? I realize they're generally annoying but I thought it wise to remove that out-of-date Feature Request info, which I don't have to the powers to do myself.
05:00:28massiveHscorche, is this what you mean by a patch task?
05:00:29Lloreansdubois92: Did ipodpatcher have a GUI when YOU ran it?
05:00:44LloreanSo why would you be asking me if you can compile it without the gui...
05:01:05LloreanMarcGuay: Yes, I just hadn't decided what I want to do yet (replace it, update it, just trash it)
05:01:26sdubois92because you said to use RBUtil, which is the gui, and i asked if i could compile ipodpatcher without the gui
05:01:33MarcGuayLlorean: Check.
05:01:48Lloreansdubois92: Ipodpatcher doesn't HAVE a gui. They're two different tools. RBUtil is not "a gui" it's "a gui tool" which is what you asked.
05:01:59LloreanRBUtil is a completely separate tool with integrated gui.
05:02:58MarcGuayWhy isn't that version up to date, but the one RBUtil has is?
05:03:12LloreanMarcGuay: We don't have anyone on PPC linux to compile it?
05:03:15LloreanAnd test
05:03:28MarcGuayI think we just found one.
05:03:32LloreanThere won't be a version of RBUtil for PPC linux either.
05:03:58swearsquestion, does the rockbox database display hidden files?
05:04:08Lloreanswears: The Rockbox Database doesn't display files.
05:04:19MarcGuayswears: Only if they have ID3 tags.
05:04:37swearshmm, is their a way to turn hidden files off?
05:04:44swearsso they don't show up
05:04:52Lloreanswears: They don't show up in the filetree if set to "supported"
05:04:58MarcGuayIn the file browser.
05:05:03swearsbut what about in the database
05:05:10*MarcGuay walks away
05:05:32*swears follows
05:06:00Lloreanswears: The database shows all the files you let it scan.
05:06:00MarcGuayWhat are you trying to do?
05:06:06LloreanDon't scan them, and it won't show 'em.
05:06:13swearsok, here's what i'm trying to do..
05:06:19swearsi want to have double of each file
05:06:26swearsso I can use both firmwares
05:06:38LloreanIf you're using the database, why do you need doubles?
05:06:44swearsbecause, in the playlist
05:06:52swearsit shows them as weird entries
05:07:02swearsit uses the actual files, instead of id3 track names
05:07:03LloreanWell, as i said, it will show all files you scan.
05:07:09LloreanSo use database.ignore to keep it from scanning your duplicates.
05:07:37swearsis that a setting?
05:07:57LloreanNo, it's a file, "database.ignore"

10:47:02LloreanI *know* it doesn't like extremely large amounts of files.

10:48:11*GodEater remains looking blank
10:48:32LloreanIt's just a collection of SID files.
10:48:38LloreanSomething like more than 30,000 tracks
10:48:50LloreanBut it's not particularly big because they're SIDs
10:49:35LloreanBut it really doesn't matter what format the files are in. If you have a lot of files on your player, maybe because you're also using it as a disk for some purpose, it can run into problems.
10:50:03GodEaterI've never run into an issue with it, and I'm sure I've got more than 30,000 files on my ipod

12:00:17linuxstbYes, and it took about 5 minutes to find it in a disassembly...

12:08:33PaulJam_pondlife: i was wondering about your comment in FS #9202. shouldn't the batterylevel be irrelevant when the charger is connected?
12:09:07PaulJam_(to spin up the disk)
12:09:33pondlifeSorry - I was thinking of USB, when you might still not be able to draw enough current. or has that issue been fixed now?
12:10:08pondlifeAFAIK the H300 doesn't enable high current mode over USB and this can mean that USB powering isn't enough in all cases...
12:10:28pondlifeI am only going on what I've read in here, and might have misunderstood
12:11:04LloreanCar Mode can't really be checked from the bootloader (or rather, shouldn't be)
12:11:26PaulJam_hmm, in the firmware there is a setting for that. but i don't know if the SVN bootloader takes 500mA.
12:11:47pondlifeAFAIK we only ever take 100mA on the H300.
12:12:15pondlifeI've always found USB charging to be much slower than mains.
12:12:42pondlifeLlorean: I agree, but I thought someone said we'd need to check from NVRAM for some reason.
12:12:57pondlifeI'm no expert though.
12:13:10pondlifeMaybe ask LinusN.
12:13:52Lloreanpondlife: NVRAM could be used so that it could be checked without needing to hit the disk
12:14:08LloreanWhich is a much more acceptable solution in cases where NVRAM can be kept in the EEPROM
12:14:45pondlifeYes, but I also thought there was a particular requirement for this before the H300 could have car mode.
12:14:59LloreanI don't think we use the EEPROM on the H300 yet.
12:15:03LloreanFor anything.
12:15:31LloreanSo yes, it would be a requirement for a bootloader to acknowledge car mode.
12:15:44peturEEPROM is used by the OF, which we need for flashing
12:15:52PaulJam_I'm not sure if the EEPROM should be used, the OF stores it's settings there (but amybe it doesn't use the whole available space)
12:16:01Lloreanpetur: cant' we reset the OF's EEPROM though?
12:16:16Lloreanmeaning we can use it for ourselves, and have a tool to "clean" it before you boot into it for flashing?
12:16:18pondlifeIIRC, I was wondering if the bootloader needed to be involved, or if car mode could be implemented without a bootloader change. There was a reason, sadly...
12:16:39peturthe OF does no testing on the EEPROM, I've seen it doe weird things when EEPROM got corrupted
12:16:46Lloreanpondlife: As long as there's bootloader USB mode, it needs to be involved, unfortunately
12:17:10Lloreanpetur: Does the OF use all of it?
12:17:16LloreanArguably we only need a single bit, at the moment.
12:17:38peturI remember that about half of it is FF
12:17:54pondlifeLlorean: I was more thinking of the non-USB powered case... i.e. just like patch #9202.

12:19:36 Quit Horscht ("electromagnetic radiation from satellite debris")
12:19:38pondlifeYes, that was my recollection - hence my comment
12:19:45LloreanI know it's true for some of them.
12:19:54pondlifeI'm not sure if that only applied to USB or not though
12:20:06pondlifeSo it might be possible to do this for the non-USB case
12:20:19LloreanI'm pretty sure it'd be all or nothing.
12:20:30pondlifeYes, best to keep things simple anyway.
12:20:30PaulJam_but if the USB cable gets inserted the disk as to spin up anyway. either to enter booloader USB mode or to boot the firmware.
12:21:01LloreanPaulJam_: Bootloader USB mode means you don't need a working firmware to access the disk
12:21:07LloreanSo bootloader USB mode shouldn't be removed.
12:21:57pondlifeThe patch makes bootloader USB mode available if you hold a key down.
12:21:58PaulJam_of course it shouldn't (and i don't like the changes that this patch does concerning USB bootloader mode).
12:22:15*pondlife neither
12:23:00Lloreanpondlife: I don't object to the default behaviour of the bootloader be "ignore USB/Charger and continue onward" as long as holding some easy-to-hold button enters charge-without-spinup, or bootloader USB
12:23:27LloreanIt'd make car adapter mode work without removing options, and simply just be a slightly saner order of operations.
12:24:11pondlifeI think I'd want consistency too - i.e. you'd need to hold the same button for USB connection in normal operation (rather than just charge)... then there's consistency across targets to consider.
12:24:32Lloreanpondlife: You mean, "Inside Rockbox, the default behaviour should be to ignore USB too?"
12:24:37LloreanThat makes no sense to me.
12:25:03LloreanIf you plug in USB, and car mode is off, Rockbox will boot and still go into USB, so it's still "consistent" in that Rockbox still goes into USB every time you plug in a cable.
12:25:18LloreanThe bootloader USB is more or less just an emergency mode that you trigger instead.
12:25:55LloreanFor the iPods this could be the in-flash USB mode once the Rockbox stack is working, so that it doesn't have to be compiled into the bootloader.
12:26:15 Join AndyIL [0] (n=pasha_in@
12:26:21PaulJam_since the H300 has a separate charger input, should the car adapter mode even influence the USB behaviour?
12:26:37LloreanOnce inside Rockbox, "USB plugin" behaviour should be determined by "Is sleep mode enabled?" and (in my opinion) "What has the user chose as their default plug-in behaviour?"
12:26:53LloreanPaulJam_: If it can charge from USB, it should, yes.
12:27:01LloreanUSB car chargers are very widely available.
12:27:04pondlifeYes.. that's a user preference as to whether they mainly use USB for charging or connection.
12:27:06Lloreanones suited for the H300 probably less so

16:14:39kawdseven tried longer and shorter times
16:14:56kawdstried everything apple suggests :-)
16:14:57Nico_Ptheoretically, would there be a way to make flash memory accessible through a pointer?
16:14:59linuxstbTry holding for longer (30+ seconds), and also just keep charging it.
16:15:46linuxstbNico_P: It depends on the hardware interface, but normally you tell the controller which sector you want to read, and then read that sector one word at a time from a memory-mapped hardware register.
16:16:00kawdsdo i have to use a charger or can i use the usb-cable?
16:16:20linuxstbkawds: Either _should_ work, but with a charger you can be more confident.
16:16:41kawdshm, will try usb-cable, cause i don't have a charger :-)
16:17:14Nico_Plinuxstb: hmm so clearly there's no way to make an arbitrary length of data available? I'm asking because I'm working on a version of the buffering API that does (almost) direct access to the flash mem (no actual buffering)

16:17:51Nico_Ppacket audio is OK with a static buffer, but I can't think of a way of making streamable audio work
16:18:07linuxstbNico_P: No. I think you would need a small buffer (one sector/page/whatever the unit of access to the flash is) to read the data into.
16:18:19PaulJamkawds: have you tried flipping the holds switch on and off again before resetting?
16:18:34linuxstbBut codecs expect up to GUARD_BUFFER_SIZE (32KB) available at once, so that would be a good size to make the buffer.
16:18:49kawdsyeah, hold-switch, menu+select, 5sec, 15sec, 30sec, etc.
16:18:56kawdsall of that :-)
16:19:00Nico_Plinuxstb: that's what I've made my static buffer, but some codec need to have the whole file
16:19:13linuxstbNico_P: Then they can't be played...
16:19:35linuxstbUnless the codec is modified to seek/read instead of expecting the whole file in RAM
16:20:16Nico_Pyeah then I'll focus on the codecs that don't need to be modified :)
16:20:58Nico_Pmy goal is to create an alternative version of buffering.c, so that no other change is needed for most cases
16:21:17Nico_PIt's already working although it has quirks
16:22:09Nico_PI don't plan on implementing album art either
16:22:21linuxstbkawds: If I was you, I would just plug it in to charge, and forget about it for 24 hours. I would also leave the hold switch on, so if it magically awakens, the Apple firmware starts.
16:22:37kawdsHold Switch on "ON"?
16:22:46kawdsso "Hold" is working?
16:22:58kawdsok, will try that and look for a charger

17:52:58jpt9Hey guys.
17:53:07jpt9I've been using a 2GB MicroSD card in my Sansa e250R with Rockbox.
17:53:53jpt9I'm thinking of getting an 8GB MicroSDHC card. Does Rockbox work with MicroSDHC cards (as opposed to regular MicroSD)? How about the original firmware? Thanks.
17:54:07scorche|shrockbox: yes OF: no
17:54:09GodEaterRockbox words with MicroSDHC, the OF doesn't
17:54:09jpt9Also, in case you haven't heard it twenty bazillion times before, Rockbox is *awesome*!
17:54:25jpt9scorche: So I'd need to use a card reader?
17:54:30GodEateryou would
17:54:52*jpt9 goes and checks if the one built in to his ThinkPad would work...
17:55:08GodEateror go through the laborious route of copying music to the main memory, and then boot rockbox, use rockbox to move it to the card, etc etc.
17:56:39jpt9I'm still amazed that they can fit 8GB on a memory card the size of my fingernail...

21:59:09saratogalinuxstb: theres a c version only

22:00:26 Join Xerion [0] (
22:00:57saratogathough the rest of the codec is still fairly slow, so the gain isn't as huge as you might expect
22:01:13saratogabut that could be fixed easily enough
22:02:27LearBtw, ffmpeg AAC is actively worked on, afaik. LC-AAC should be fairly complete, with SBR in the works. Not fixed point though...
22:03:00saratogafaad is actually worked on a little too, just we don't bother merging in improvements
22:04:33linuxstbI think working on faad is more useful than waiting for ffmpeg's implementation to be complete, and then porting to fixed-point...

22:15:13LearHm, "impossible constraints" in libdemac with gcc 4.3.1...
22:16:51linuxstbWhich CPU?
22:18:28 Quit jpt9 (Remote closed the connection)
22:18:54LearSansa e200, is that PP5024 or something? The version that isn't arm7 specific compiles. Dunno if it works though.
22:19:41LearThe problem was in the vector_math16 header included from filter.c.
22:20:23saratogasansas are pp5024 and are generic armv4 (and also an arm7tdmi core)
22:20:38amiconnGcc sometimes cannot cope with demanding in/out constraints in asm() blocks
22:20:57amiconn...especially at higher optimisation levels
22:23:57*preglow enjoys this codec optimization talk
22:24:31LearBecause you don't need to do anything? :)

22:25:34amiconnThe constraints in vector_math16_arm7.h are rather demanding, but then the implementation is also quite a bit more efficient than C

22:30:04preglowi'm going on vacation for a week now, and need to get the bloody d2 stuff going anyway, so can't work on it
22:30:39*linuxstb recalls the 5% realtime that libmad first ran at on coldfire, and thinks preglow has done enough (apologies to others who may have helped with that...)
22:31:00preglowthe first bout of optimization isn't really much work...

22:34:27preglowlinuxstb: as a matter of fact, libmad on coldfire was a bit of work, but it was my first real embedded work ever, so...
22:35:11LearI'll see if I can pinpoint it at least.
22:35:13preglowshotofadds: pounded on the bloody sd driver again now, and can't get it to receive data no matter what i bloody do
22:35:26preglowit's really starting to piss me off
