01:38:49strife89Here's the address to the theme. Pastebin coming in a moment.
01:38:50PaulJami don't know what the errors mean. usually the line number is sufficient to find the error
01:39:57strife89It says "Line 42: Invalid Parameter". I'd say this means that something specified goes beyond the allowed range (of the screen, perhaps).
01:40:11Nico_Pstrife89: try adding −−deugwps to the command line and look at the last tokens

01:47:22PaulJami would say the viewport is outside the screen area

02:02:13blaydei think something in the rockbox firmware got messed up? the settings reset didn't change anything (to do with the channel config) but updating it worked

03:31:07linuxstbIs there a change in particular you think is odd?
03:32:53soapI was perusing the WPS galleries the other night and wanted to talk to some of the theme authors directly about some thoughts I had.
03:33:21x0pherHello, I am a little confused regarding wording on the guidelines, is a "new port" considered off topic as it is not an officially supported target. If so I think my introduction an question may possibly be immature at the moment.
03:34:00 Quit ddalton ("leaving")
03:34:05soapnew port development discussion is never off-topic.

03:36:53linuxstb"Unsupported builds" refers to modified versions of Rockbox, not new ports.
03:37:15 Part Strife89
03:37:50soap"Unsupported Builds" is a phrase specifically referring to shared user-modified builds, which have their own section in the forum. I can see how the wording could be confusing, but that bullet point is more of a reiteration that only stock-rockbox is going to get support help.
03:40:43x0pherThank you for the clarification. I am playing with the Gigabeat S port. I wanted to make some themes for it. I signed up for the wiki just before joining here. I completed a theme on the S eariler. I'd like to permission to write to the wiki and upload it but there currently is not a WPS gallery for the Gigabeat S. Should I wait, I am not sure what how to upload it and apologize if I am unfamiliar with the method
03:45:23soapWPS galleries are organized by screen resolution. Am I correct that the Gigabeat F and X series have the same resolution as the S?

03:50:35linuxstbx0pher: OK, you should now have write permissions in the wiki. Just add your themes to the Gigabeat F/X page for now - it will be renamed in due course.
03:51:05linuxstbThat problem doesn't sound specific to the S - the progress bar syntax was changed recently, so many themes are now broken

03:54:20x0pherThank you very much. I hope to have a handful more created soon.

06:46:08soapditto. I don't recall it being the hour off as recently as earlier this week. Infact I would bet money it wasn't.
06:46:46mrzaiusi've read about how the ipod strips audiobooks from its shuffled content
06:47:08mrzaiusbut only if transcoded to an a4b file

06:47:31mrzaiuswhat's the rockbox approach to the problem?
06:47:49soaphuh, I hit auto-detect and it gave me an offset of 0.
06:47:50mrzaiuscan you exclude by id3 genre tags?
06:48:07mrzaiusor exclude a specific folder?
06:48:24soapI do believe you can exclude a folder from the database.
06:49:16midgeyyou can ignore a folder by creating a file called database.ignore in that folder
06:49:18mrzaiusdoes that prevent you from playing the track altogether, or just keep it out of shuffle playlists?
06:49:37soapmrzaius, depends on how you build your shuffled playlist.
06:50:03soapRockbox is not primarily a database-based player.
06:50:09midgeythe folder simply isn't indexed in the database, if you go to the folder in file view you can access all it's files
06:50:32soapIt /has/ a database feature, but Rockbox is a file-based player at its heart.
06:51:20mrzaiushow are the bookmarks stored? would doing iiyt

13:04:11GodEaterfermcg: we have someone else doing that too currently
13:04:15fermcglinuxstb: maybe it's better to make it just an application. I'd like to talk to people involved in rockbox to discuss which option is better. I have a sansa

13:05:22GodEaterfermcg: I don't think he's posted any information anywhere yet

13:15:27fermcgdoes this matter if this is an application?
13:15:38fermcgmaybe it just can't be packaged with rockbox

13:25:57domonokywould it be possible to ship plugins with a different licences in a extra package ? (ie. + ) then rockbox itself could stay GPLv2 or Later, i think...
13:25:57linuxstbfermcg: Do you know anything about fixed-point arithmetic? It looks like sbagen is using floating-point, which will be very slow on our target devices (no hardware FPU)
13:27:21Lloreandomonoky: Actually, I can't see why it wouldn't be. Since Rockbox is GPLv2 or later, you can compile GPLv2 code against it and you just end up with a GPLv2 Rockbox binary
13:27:25fermcglinuxstb: I used FP many years ago (about 10 years I guess) when there were no videocards to make games lol
13:27:51LloreanSo you (in my opinion) should be able to separately distribute GPLv2, GPLv3, and GPLv2 or Later plugins, I would think
13:28:12LloreanSimilar to how ffmpeg can be compiled under different licenses depending on which features you enable.

13:29:00linuxstbI would prefer to just include sbagen in official builds, and then if we ever wanted to go to v3, then remove it. I don't think one plugin is worth the complication.
13:29:19Lloreanlinuxstb: Well, there's the espeak plugin that is probably worth including too...
13:29:21linuxstbfermcg: OK. That's the reason I was curious to know how fast it ran on sansalinux.
13:30:15fermcgI sent the guy an email... let's see what's the reason to stick to v2 only
13:31:19Lloreanlinuxstb: While I'm not sure it needs immediate decision, it does seem like we should figure out if this is really an option, or just bad assumptions on domonoky and my parts, since it might be useful in the future too.
13:31:26fermcgas far as I know audio processing, I would tell fixed points should be enough
13:31:51LloreanIt seems to me configure could prompt for the version of GPL and compile plugins based on which you pick.

13:35:41LloreanWell the GPL is an issue of distribution.

13:36:13LloreanIt's just the binary distribution we have to worry about, afaik.

13:49:03JdGordonlinuxstb: we is 80+ commiters... you dont think its possible one of us does it?
13:49:21LloreanJdGordon: We've decided the license is GPLv2 or Later
13:49:32LloreanAdding plugins won't change the Rockbox license, whereas adding core code will.
13:49:50LloreanAt worst, a plugin can just affect the license of a single binary distribution of Rockbox.
13:50:39LloreanSo as long as there's a set policy on the issue _before_ it's done, there's no risk.
13:50:52JdGordonanyway... cant the plugin/codec api be dual licensed to get aroud the issue?
13:52:05JdGordonLlorean: and later if we deicde to go v3... what happens if the plugin is forgotten about?
13:52:23LloreanJdGordon: "Forgotten" how?
13:52:28LloreanThe license will still be around

13:53:44JdGordonyeah, but now we can assume that all the current code is v2+ which means we dont need to do any extra checking to go v3
13:54:12LloreanAnd if we restrict it to plugins with explicit license, it takes a quick check to verify we're ready for v3
13:54:32LloreanYou could even just keep a list of plugin names and their licenses in the source if it's that big a concern.

17:10:09 Quit moos (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
17:10:43domonokyseems to work..
17:11:29bluebrothershould I commit it?
17:12:30bluebrotherI'm not 100% satisfied with that but at least it's somewhat nicer
17:12:34domonokyif it also works for normal builds and other platforms, why not...
17:12:56domonokydont forget to also update the file .. :-)
17:13:23bluebrotherwell, I tried building the non-universal lib and it seems to work fine −− at least on linux.
17:15:02***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
17:15:22domonokywhy do the encoder and decoder targets also use the ARCH and OUT vars ?
17:17:08bluebrotherare the objects identical for those? There are still different architectures.
17:17:20*bluebrother is not familiar with this arch stuff on mac
17:18:09bluebrotherplus, the OUT is used by the compiler call. Making it different for that object would introduce another special case
17:20:10domonokyi see, OUT is needed, but ARCH is never used in those two targets...
17:20:28domonokyie ARCH is always empty
17:21:58bluebrotherhmm, true. But does building a universal binary work this way at all? I.e. if the librbspeex.a is a lipo'ed ar, will that work?
17:23:23domonokyif we want universal encoders and decoders, we need a universal .a file (ie what lipo produces) and the compile those two binarys with !both! arch specified in the same call
17:24:02domonokyor the otherway is, to again build two binarys and lipo it again :-)
17:24:50domonokythe normal way to produce universal binarys is to call gcc with two -arch commands...
17:24:54bluebrotherboth archs specified means adding -arch twice?
17:25:22domonokylike gcc ... -arch ppc -arch i386 ...
17:25:38bluebrotherhmm. Well, I think I'm going to leave it as it's now −− if we want universal binaries for the *coders we can add this later :)
17:26:04domonokywe do it like this for rbutil, but we have to work around ar in the rbspeex lib :-)
17:26:10*bluebrother wonders what lipo stands for
17:26:51bluebrotherI guess that workaround is now in the rbspeex Makefile ;-)

18:38:57andashhi! i installed rockbox yesterday on my ipod video 30 gb and it works fine, except themes i install dont render properly, the theme background image will load but thats about it. the layout is always the same; song title, time remaining etc is all squashed at the top of the screen. is this a known bug?
18:39:35LloreanIt's a known issue, but not a bug. The theme file you're using is outdated and needs to be fixed.
18:39:53PaulJamread also this:
18:39:54andashoh, i see!
18:40:00stripwaxandash - you just need to install themes that have been designed to work with the latest rockbox versions
18:40:24stripwaxunfortunately theme authors often don't update their themes to comply
18:40:58andashyeah but i've downloaded several that says something like "works with any of the latest daiy builds" but i guess thats outdated then...
18:41:32PaulJammaybe "someone" should makr all the broken themes as broken in the wiki, so there is less confusion.

20:35:34n1smaybe it's something we can hardcode then to work around the issue until a proper fix is found (or a candidate for a release hack)
20:36:43pixelmathe weird thing is that usually a simple reboot "fixes" it but I also had case where only using the radio in the OF helped
20:37:21pixelmagot to go now though, back later

22:44:48saratogagoogle says cook is an MDCT codec, so you can likely borrow bits and pieces from either WMA or Ogg
22:45:13saratogaparticularly WMA since its also an ffmpeg codec, and likely uses some of the functions cook does
22:45:35solexxn1s: according to the wiki I need V7-pre4 which I have already installed. Is this still true?
22:46:09MTeesaratoga : thanks
22:46:22n1ssolexx: the wiki has far better memory than me so i guess so :)
22:47:03n1ssolexx: as long as the hd still works you can just put it back in to change the bootloader later if it turns out it's needed
22:47:16solexxn1s: thanks for the warning anyway. I don't want to spend all the money for a CF card and then find out it doesn't work :-/
22:48:19solexxI consider buying one of these
22:49:28solexxCF-IDE adapters. It looks ok, only a little bit large. But since it's not larger than the current disk, it should fit.
22:49:32saratogaMTee: looking at ffmpeg, it is based on the same IMDCT as our WMA codec used until last week, so you will want to look at the SVN logs and grab fft.c and mdct.c
22:49:33n1ssolexx: that's wrong for a h120
22:49:46n1sthe h120 is not zif
22:49:50saratogaalso it appears to use the get_vlc functions as well, so you'll want the modified bitstream.c in the WMA codec

23:01:12Bagderand yes, the ARM emulator is failed
23:01:45linuxstbAnd the wps editor? domonoky said the student has been awol the last week...
23:04:42linuxstbBagder: BTW, I'm wanting to commit the (relatively little at the moment) code I've written for the rockbox themes site to SVN - any suggestions for where to commit it? I'm guessing it should be outside the normal Rockbox tree, at the same level as "www" ?
23:05:16Bagderyes I think so, possibly even like "themesite/trunk"

23:10:10*Dhraakellian .·°{ hmm... rename the .rockbox dir manually? }
23:10:27linuxstbSo I would simply do "mkdir themesite" followed by "svn add themesite", and then the same for a "trunk" subdir, and then carry on?

23:12:34soapDhraakellian, one of the Rockbox builds would have to be modified, as everything (by default) gets looked for in the ./.rockbox directory. So even if you modified the bootloader to look in two directories you would as well have to modify Rockbox itself to run out of a non-standard directory.
23:13:10rasheramiconn: Got time to test FS #8207 on cygwin?
23:13:15Dhraakelliansoap: or just manually rename the .rockbox directory every time I want to switch?
23:13:31soapor you could do that.
23:14:00Dhraakellian...or I could just break down and see about learning the needed stuff to fix the plaintext wps theme for newer builds

23:35:10rasherDiffing them will yield different results (at the very least because of the different SVN revision)
23:35:37rasherAnd of course there might be other bugs.
23:35:56rasherI'm quite interested to see how much of a difference it makes.
23:36:00scorchesoap: that was already in the back of my mind, but it isnt that important
23:36:01amiconnOf course I'll compare a file list, not the actual .zip
23:36:32rasherYeah, that's what I've been doing (or rather, diff -r on the unzipped .rockbox dir)
23:36:49rasherI tested by doing "time make zip"
23:37:28*amiconn is doing the same
23:37:58bluebrotherwhat do you guys think about "hiding" ipodpatcher / sansapatcher binaries to some degree? There seem to be tons of unofficial "tutorials" around still using them, and I have the impression we could save people trouble if we make those tuts break
23:37:58rasherIf the savings aren't great, I'm not sure it's worth the hassle of shaking out any bugs.
23:38:03amiconnI picked 4 of my targets which are somewhat representative (H300, G1/G2, RecV1, and Player)
23:38:24bluebrotherso they need to get updated and hopefully will use rbutil instead as default.
23:38:27amiconnTimes ranging from 45 s (Player) to 109 s (H300) for svn

23:58:57n1sbluebrother: the 64 bit sansapatcher seems to have gone into hiding by itself ;) so the link in the manual is broken. Did we decide on if the manual install instructions will stay? also the 32 bit version worked fine for me on 64 bit.
