#rockbox log for 2008-07-21

00:00:17amiconnAnd the only difference is again database.ignore
00:00:52linuxstbbluebrother: That sounds fair enough to me. The advantage would be that the install chapter would then be more or less identical for all targets...
00:01:40amiconnrasher: Hmm, and it didn't clean up the 'codepages' output in the build dir
00:02:26 Quit n1s ()
00:02:32rasherAh right, forgot about that.
00:03:39bluebrotherand I'd really like to see all those outdated tutorials based on the patchers getting broken. Maybe move the patchers out of the bootloader/ folder on the webserver?
00:04:10pixelmabefore the manual installation gets just moved it needs to be reviewed for general information that you should know while attempting an automatic install. IMO there is some.
00:04:29 Quit davina (Remote closed the connection)
00:04:46pixelmaI mean the chapters of course
00:05:16bluebrotheroptimally those information would be present in rbutil, but this will take some time ...
00:05:29linuxstbbluebrother: I partly agree, but for example ipodpatcher is used by IPL, so that would also break (probably correct) IPL install instructions.
00:06:55bluebrotheris IPLs website up again anyway?
00:07:53bluebrotherwell, another (but IMO more annoying) way would be to redirect download attempts to a website pointing out rbutil and the differences, and only if you click a button you get to download the file
00:08:40bluebrotherof course we could simply move the files so IPL has a chance to update their links, and redirect the old links to some explanation html page
00:09:07amiconnrasher: I see that you replaced the 'touch' that added database.ignore by an open(). Maybe you need to close() it explicitly before zipping?
00:09:18amiconnCould be tha the file is locked while it's open
00:09:51*amiconn should just try that
00:09:53rasheramiconn: Nope - the default mode is to open with mode 'r', which doesn't create the file if it doesn't exist

00:14:07amiconnThis is because of the still opened file
00:14:17amiconnClosing it fixes the problem
00:14:33rasherAh, that was a silly mistake.
00:15:52amiconnThe created .zip now matches svn
00:16:36rasherNow it's just a matter of whether or not I dare commit it.

00:20:09amiconnUmm, of course it is...

00:26:14rasherNico_P: Yeah, I think so. It seems a bit silly
00:26:43amiconnrasher: Would it perhaps pay off to add a glob_move() as well? (for the .cp files)
00:27:36rasheramiconn: I doubt it matters much, speed-wise. But it'd probably look nicer
00:27:58Nico_Prasher: there's the overhead of compression
00:30:15rasherNico_P: not in what amiconn is talking about. But yes, separating the zipping part would be a welcome change I guess
00:30:25Nico_Pah, sorry
00:30:29amiconnAlso, is there a difference in using system() vs. using backticks for calling programs, performance wise?
00:30:37 Quit MTee ()
00:31:06rasheramiconn: I think they're the same. I just changed to system() because it's more obvious than backticks imho
00:31:30amiconnI'm asking because the ziptool call uses system, and convbdf uses backticks
00:32:13rasherI'd be surprised if there was any difference.
00:34:44amiconnAlso, there is still a 'find' call which checks for any codecs present
00:34:54amiconn(line 287ff)
00:35:58rasherYeah. Didn't quite fit in with the other find calls I changed, and it's only a single command, so it shouldn't be a big slowdown
00:36:13*amiconn thinks it's strange to first create the destination dir, then copy (maybe zero) files, and then check whethere there are files in the diestination dir
00:36:35rasherActually, just running rmdir regardless should work (and ignore any errors)
00:36:51amiconnImho it would make sense to check the source first, and only create the destination dir if there is something to copy
00:37:14amiconnI know that this was there before your commit...
00:38:16rasherI think it makes more sense to not do any checking, and just attempt to remove the dir (which will fail if it's not empty)

00:55:22 Quit ompaul (Client Quit)
00:56:10rasherThat sounds promising
00:56:31amiconnSo if the perl script could temporarily change to $ROOT/fonts/ , it would be possible to replace lines 210..228 with a single call
00:57:19amiconnIt's just $ROOT/tools/convbdf -f -\"$ROOT/fonts/*.bdf\" >/dev/null 2>&1
00:58:05amiconnThis would speed up 'make fullzip'

03:07:00DhraakellianI'm just glad Plain Text was easy to fix
03:07:36Dhraakelliansimple, not very flashy, but informative and easy to read
03:09:16Dhraakelliannow I just need to figure out how to get moodbars rendered as 176- (or would it be 174-)pixel-wide images so I can use them as per-track album art right above the progress bar
03:10:10soapis this going to be a bastardization of album art? (I say that in only the kindest way)
03:10:28soapOr do you have some other method for per-track conditionals?
03:11:09DhraakellianI thought it already worked if there was a bmp with a name based on the current track's info
03:11:14DhraakellianI might be mistaken though
03:11:41soapCurrent track's name, album name, or such.
03:12:53Dhraakellian./ filename .bmp - same filename as currently playing music file
03:13:05Dhraakellianthat'd be what I was remembering, I think
03:13:06soapthere is no reason you couldn't create a "moodbar" image for specific albums / tracks, make it 176 pixels wide and 10 pixels high (for example) and use that.
03:13:33Dhraakellianor 1 pixel high and stack it?
03:13:53soapIIUC only one image can be called in this manner.
03:14:35soapas there is no provision to call the last song's "album art" or the next song's "album art" :()
03:15:11Dhraakellianwell, given that the progressbar itself is only about four pixels high, including the border, I don't think I'd want the moodbar to be too tall
03:15:20***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
03:16:10DhraakellianI think the main problem would be getting the .mood files rendered as 176x4 bitmaps
03:17:33Dhraakellianhmm... easiest way would probably be to yank the code from amarok and then see how to save a qpixmap as a .bmp

05:01:08jrincon87it just boots onto the Rockbox software
05:01:39LloreanWhat instructions did you follow?
05:03:34jrincon87I downloaded Rockbox for mi ipod mini 2G from the rockbox webpage, moved the folder called .rockbox into the main directory of the ipod, downloaded and ran ipodpatcher.exe with the option to install, and that's it
05:04:18LloreanDid you use the ipodpatcher from
05:04:23LloreanAnd why didn't you use the RButil method?
05:05:38LloreanWhat version numbers does your ipodpatcher report? It should tell you when you run it "version X with version Y bootloaders"
05:06:18jrincon87I don't know... when I was deciding to install Rockbox I read a Blog and he has the instructions after giving a good experience with it, so I followed his instructions
05:06:41jrincon87hm, hold on
05:07:35LloreanWe really recommend you follow our install instructions. Ipodpatcher is an outdated tool, and while it *should* work I'm not wholly certain it's the most up to date.
05:07:59jrincon87I used the last version for Windows...
05:08:16Llorean"Outdated" means "It hasn't been updated in a while"...
05:08:38LloreanIt should still work to dual boot.

11:02:07ddaltonwe still all against talking plugins?
11:04:05linuxstbI've never heard anyone say they're against talking plugins. We have a Google Summer of Code project to make them happen.
11:05:09ddaltonlinuxstb: thought the voice files were an issue, to large for those archoes, which BTW, I think we should drop, but thats just my opinion. doesn't rbspeexenc help that anyway?
11:05:31ddaltonI have plugins talking here...
11:05:46ddaltonbut, only a few, because haven't hacked much code until lately
11:06:01linuxstbPeople were probably against your method of implementing them - I'm guessing you've added plugin voice strings to the core voice file?
11:08:00ddaltonlinuxstb: I didn't ipliment it, I don't have those skills :-), but yeah. it just adds prto type functions in plugin.h and plugin.c for the talk stuff, and uses english.lang. I guess the second voice file could be added, that patdch isn't a waste, but I wouldn't think it would be to big for most targets?
11:08:12ddaltonlinuxstb: can you see?
11:08:42Llorean"Not too big" doesn't mean it isn't wasteful if it can be done another way better.
11:09:08ddaltonlinuxstb: would by any chance you be able to test a patch for me? the coding isn't great, indenting is wrong and some other messing crap, but could you make sure it speaks the right time in the stopwatch to what is the screen?
11:09:28ddaltonI'm blind, so can't tell if the voice speaks what is on the screen, and I don't trust my own code :-)
11:09:53ddaltonLlorean: whats our current limit?
11:10:45*ddalton voice file is 643 K with 3 or 4 extra strings...
11:10:51Lloreanddalton: It's not an issue of "limits"
11:10:59LloreanIt's an issue of "it should be as small as possible"
11:11:19LloreanIf we can swap it out for plugin voices, we should, rather than saying "sure, we can waste a few bytes here or there"
11:11:32ddaltonerm, well, i believe we can go past 3 mb on most targets, plenty of room I believe, we could just impliment this method, and when someone gets around to fixing the voice file how you devs want, you could change it.
11:11:55amiconnddalton: We can doesn't mean we should. And there are targets where we can't
11:12:08amiconnThere is no sane reason to waste memory when we don't have to
11:12:16Lloreanddalton: Why is there such a hurry to do it the wrong way? All that means is *more* work for whoever tries to fix it later.
11:12:28LloreanSince they have to clean up and remove the old code too.
11:12:42LloreanWhy not just do it right the first time if you're going to put time into it?
11:13:12ddaltonLlorean: Basically, because I don't have the skills
11:13:35ddaltonas I said, this same code will still be usedd, just extra code will be added most likely
11:13:37amiconnThat's not a valid reason

11:25:23pixelmaddalton: "nice" that someone who doesn't have an Archos says "we should drop them" (and giving no reason). Also speex doesn't help them because they can only play mp3 (and wav) which means the voice file needs to stay mp3 data...

16:14:35sacarascthe Database menu seems to be different than what is described in the manual
16:16:35LambdaCalculus37How so?
16:16:47LambdaCalculus37If there are errors in the manual, they'll be taken care of.
16:18:09sacarascwhen I go to the Database menu, I get things like "Album" "Artist", but in the manual it's totally different (or I'm looking in the wrong place, which is probably the case)
16:19:27alpha367album and artist are what it shows for me
16:19:44PaulJamthis is the actual database. the database menu which is described in the manual can be found in the settings (or in the context menu of the database entry of the main menu)
16:19:45LambdaCalculus37You're looking in the wrong place. What you're reading is the database context menu.

18:17:56linuxstbYes, the USB stack is specific to one particular USB chip (the iMX31, but the same USB is used in the PortalPlayer PP502x chips)
18:18:02domonokyCasainho: sure it needs a driver for the specific usb chip in the player..
18:18:36Casainhodomonoky: where can I find that driver on source code? - I am looking but I can't find...

22:48:16Nico_Pfml: by "the other patch", did you mean wps_parser2.patch or another one?
22:48:59fmlNico_P: no, I mean the patch for the skip length, don't remember the FS number
22:49:18Nico_Pah, to add a WPS tag?
22:50:12fmlyes. That also corrects reading at 0x0 and evaluates tags as 0-based (as it should be), not 1-based
22:51:38Nico_PFS #8965, right?
22:52:22Nico_Pintval is 1-based on purpose
22:53:19Nico_PI can't exactly remember a compelling reason for that, but I remember it was a conscious decision

22:54:28fmlNico_P: the numeric value is still 1-based. But the string produced was also 1-based whie it should be 0-based (according to e.g. CustomWPS)
22:54:36Nico_Pah, right
22:54:54Nico_Pclearly I didn't look at the patch long enough :)

23:01:14fmlNico_P: I can't see a reason to have it 1-based. But if it's the convention now it's also OK.
23:02:35Nico_Pit's more adapted to how the conds are done in the token array... 0 is for other cases
23:05:14fmlNico_P: the main thing is that we have a 'specification' and all tags stick to it.

23:10:28webguest24The ipod patcher thing while installing Rockbox is stuck at the second step
23:10:35webguest24Is it supposed to take like 10 minutes because that's how long it's been stuck there
23:10:50webguest24It says moving images to create new room for firmware
23:10:55webguest24And it's been there for quite a while

23:44:51*bluebrother likes the new look of his wiki page :)
23:45:01BagderNico_P: yes
23:45:16Nico_PBagder: seen my messages from earlier about svn over HTTP?
23:46:26Nico_Pwhen trying to checkout rockbox's svn through HTTP, I get "svn: Server sent unexpected return value (405 Method Not Allowed) in response to PROPFIND request for '/rockbox/trunk' "

23:46:51Nico_PI have managed to checkout some other svn repos with HTTP, so it's not (only) work's proxy
23:47:19amiconnDoes SVN hook into apache, or does it have it sown http server?
23:47:24BagderI don't think we have the necessary setup done for svn over http
23:47:35Bagderamiconn: it's a module for apache
23:47:36amiconns/it sown/its own/
23:47:43Nico_Pamiconn: it can hook into apache, but there's svnserve as an alternative
23:48:01Bagdersvnserve is for the svn:// protocol
23:48:19Nico_Pcan the apache module do the svn:// protocol too?
23:48:31Bagderno I don't think so

23:50:56Nico_PBagder: yeah, and UsingSVN doesn't mention http://... I don't know where I got this idea
23:51:14Nico_Pwould adding http access be a possibility though?
23:51:21Bagderit would indeed
23:51:45BagderDerPapst: I prefer to leave those things to zagor

23:54:03Bagderpetur: yes, all three of us Swedes are on holiday atm
23:54:20peturI figured...
