#rockbox log for 2008-07-31

00:00:00num1webguest46: Rockbox isn't really in the habit of manually changing the OF, either we completely replace it or install our own bootloader that dual-boots the OF and Rockbox
00:00:58webguest46but i am thinking it would have to be a modified firmware
00:01:13linuxstbnum1: That's not quite true, often we combine our bootloader code with the OF, in effect creating a modified firmware.
00:02:02linuxstbwebguest46: Yes, that's what someone needs to do. But it's easier said than done, especially as we don't fully understand the firmware file format yet, and don't know a way to add extra code to it.

00:19:27peturhmm for a sim build of X5 but not for a target build of h300
00:20:24rasherStill no genlang errors here (for X5 sim).
00:22:36kugellinuxstb: I managed to strip the actual bmp_resize(not resize_into_core) patch to 300bytes bin size increase, by removing the all those options the patch introduces and cleaning it up a little.
00:22:38bertrikrobin0800, I'm about to go to sleep, I'll help you tomorrow ok?
00:23:12kugellinuxstb: together with resize_into_core, I come to ~3KB bin size increase (now comparing the actual bin files)
00:23:43rasherpetur: and what do those line look like? Are diverged from SVN?
00:23:59kugelrobin0800: I could possibly build one for you

00:25:26rasherpixelma: I was unsure about whether he had actually contributed, he's in the svn log, but I couldn't find the patch in FS. Do you remember?
00:26:01rasherMost of the changes in that revision got modified pretty quickly anyway
00:27:35pixelmano, I don't remember, it was a bit before the time I started looking closer
00:28:00rasherAlso he's done good chunks of the French translation, so I figured that's what he does, and I may just have messed up when committing (I did the SVN commit)
00:28:38peturrasher: I wiped the build dir, did configure for target 30, S(im) and make - same warnings
00:29:00rasherpetur: would you mind sharing your hebrew.lang?
00:29:19peturit is svn...
00:29:44peturdiff says no differences
00:30:12*petur tries in his clean tree
00:31:45pixelmarasher: looking at his wiki page, it says he's from Germany/Belgium (and if I remember correctly he currently is in Germany) so it could be possible he speaks those 2 languages well enough. Not a big thing I suppose...
00:32:16peturrasher: weird, my cleant tree builds fine
00:32:31rasherpetur: Now diff the two.. and genlang, perhaps
00:35:16peturrasher: know a good diff program for directories? (gui)
00:35:29*petur wonders if winmerge runs under wine
00:35:39rasherWell I was thinking of just diffing the two hebrew.lang
00:35:50rasherBut no - diff -r not good enough?

00:56:47joshinThanks. Time to update my sources and kick off a build. :)
00:57:14kugelYou actually only need to edit the makefile made by configure AFAIK
00:57:33joshinYeah, it was pretty easy when I last did it (around 6-8 months ago or so)
00:57:54joshinI'm just lazy so was hoping not to have to still do it. :)
00:57:58kugeljoshin: But, it's disabled by default for a reason. It can be harmful to your filesystem (especially with HIGH_SPEED_USB)
00:58:16Lloreankugel: No. You can just add it to the target config file

01:06:18LloreanA much more effective way, especially if you build for multiple targets or want to keep your changes orderly, is to just add it to the config-e200.h or whatever is appropriate for the targets you want to enable it for.

02:27:30kugelMarcGuay: Oh thanks!
02:29:00kugelI just want it be committed ;) Sadly, seeing the 2,7KB bin size increase (at least for the smooth scaling algorithm), I have the feeling the chances are low
02:29:14*kugel needs to talk with the RSB :)
02:30:14Lloreankugel: Does it use its own buffer to resize the image, or does it resize in place on the audio buffer?
02:30:30MarcGuayAre the targets where binsize is a troublesome issue the same targets that are less likely to use this? i.e. Can't it simply be excluded from those builds, making everyone happy?
02:30:58LloreanMarcGuay: It's not just a question of whether binsize is an issue now.
02:31:36LloreanRAM usage, and how much we can spare for compressed audio, is always a question worth considering. It's just less immediate and on a smaller scale for some targets.
02:31:49 Join Thundercloud [0] (
02:32:01LloreanBut it's still worth considering "how useful is this" vs "how much RAM does it use up" since every K of RAM is memory that could be used for a different feature instead.
02:32:19LloreanAnd it's much harder to remove a feature in favour of a new one than to say "Y'know, it's nice, but it's not *that* nice"
02:32:36JdGordonevery k of ram is about 0.2s or something rediculous... and we have ~30mb of the stuff to play with
02:33:02LloreanJdGordon: So are you saying we should just use all of it?
02:33:21LloreanThere's got to be an upper limit. And once you know you have an upper limit, you know that eventually it will matter, and if it'll matter eventually, then it actually matters now.
02:33:30JdGordonim saying using a bit more for a very popular feature shouldnt be considered bad
02:34:06JdGordonLlorean: that sentance also says "there is a limit, so why bother adding anything..."
02:34:06 Quit LambdaCalculus37 ("Do quit now, there's a demon around the corner!")
02:34:29JdGordonsure, eventually we'll hit it... but whent that happens we'll worry about it
02:34:31LloreanJdGordon: No, it says "there is a limit, so make sure the things you're adding are the things you're willing to sacrifice later features for"
02:34:46JdGordonyay for stalling progress
02:34:49LloreanIt's much better to pick and choose carefully than to start deciding what to dump.
02:35:00num1this is a silly question, it's possible to use gotos in a plugin right?
02:35:33LloreanJdGordon: So if we just rejected it outright, would that be stalling progress too?
02:35:43 Quit massiveH (Read error: 113 (No route to host))
02:35:44XavierGrnum1 you can use it in the core too if used sanely
02:35:44LloreanOn the assumption that "better to reject it now, than possibly have to remove it later"?
02:36:11num1Llorean: sure it's better to choose carefully, but there's a line where you're letting too little in and that's what stalls progress
02:36:16JdGordonLlorean: well you bassically have already rejected it..
02:36:19XavierGrnum1: people are often afraid of goto too much but if used properly it can be a good thing
02:36:29LloreanJdGordon: No, I'm actually in favour of bitmap resize.
02:36:55num1XavierGr: alright, thanks.
02:37:02Lloreannum1: Bitmap resize isn't a functional feature. It's eye candy, and it's frankly stupid eye candy at that, since you can accomplish the resizing yourself.
02:37:30 Join TuxOtaku [0] (
02:37:41LloreanJdGordon: I didn't comment on BMP resize's bin size use, just on MarcGuay's question as to whether binsize is a real concern.
02:37:50TuxOtakuhey, what video formats does rockbox support?
02:37:55LloreanTuxOtaku: MPEG1/2
02:38:09TuxOtakuthat's all though?
02:38:17LloreanThey're not exactly fast devices.
02:38:35TuxOtakuok, was just curious
02:38:42LloreanAnd the smaller your video, the less difference there is in bitrate savings between codecs in my experience.

02:39:46LloreanJdGordon: But I'd rather BMP resize lean toward a small resizing algorithm that maybe isn't as pretty than trying to get the prettiest one we can in.
02:40:05MarcGuayLlorean: Doing the resizing yourself for any number of themes, even with a batch converter, is a pain in the rear.
02:40:45LloreanMarcGuay: And people who never use album art all pay a little bit to save those who do that pain in the rear?
02:41:03JdGordonsounds fair to me
02:41:05MarcGuayHow do they pay if we haven't reached the limit yet?
02:41:18MarcGuayHow do they notice?
02:41:23LloreanMarcGuay: RAM used for the binary isn't used for buffering audio, and lowers battery life.
02:41:25*linuxstb thought Llorean has already said he's in favour of bmp resize...
02:41:29LloreanBMP resize on its own is a small amount.
02:41:41LloreanBut Rockbox is a big pile of "small amounts"
02:42:10JdGordonso its either always bad to add feaures which means we may as well give up.... or add everything untill we get to the limit
02:42:12Lloreanlinuxstb: I think they missed that.
02:42:29LloreanJdGordon: OR add features we're willing to sacrifice other features for.
02:42:33advcomp2019i do not use album art, so i do not want rockbox to slow down.. i like the speed
02:42:42Lloreanadvcomp2019: Has nothing to do with speed.
02:43:44advcomp2019o ok.. you was talking about RAM up above and got a little confused then
02:43:54Lloreanadvcomp2019: Yes, RAM has very little to do with speed.
02:44:01*MarcGuay finds out that the Sony NWA series uses the same Coldfire chip as the X5/M5/M3...
02:44:58LloreanMarcGuay: On SWCodec we already use about 10% of the available RAM. Ideally we should be trying to free up more of it. New features aren't bad, but they should be considered based on "how much RAM do they cost" vs "what do they actually add to the total experience"
02:45:12LloreanBitmap resizing is a pretty small addition, over all, since it doesn't actually even let you do anything new.
02:45:27LloreanWe should try to add a version of it that's as small as possible if we're going to.
02:45:45JdGordon10% sounds alot worse than 3MB...
02:45:47MarcGuayLlorean: It lets you not waste your life resizing album art to 100 different sizes.
02:45:55LloreanJdGordon: And yet both are true.
02:46:04LloreanMarcGuay: Which you can script.
02:46:28LloreanMarcGuay: You could even propose adding a feature to RBUtil to check album art on your themes and make sure it's available in all those sizes.
02:46:34LloreanWhich would also solve your problem.
02:46:56JdGordonLlorean: actually no.. we have 16mb and 64 mb targets which both use 4mb :D
02:47:08num1How about a compromise, if resizing were added as a plugin that resizes every image in some directory, would it be accepted?
02:47:10kugelLlorean: To answer your question, the resized bitmap is loaded into metadata buffer. I'm not entirely sure what happens with the orig bitmap after resizing though
02:47:17LloreanJdGordon: Yes, I was averaging out all swcodec targets, and approximating. Obviously it's worse for the 16mb and less bad for the 64.
02:47:31Lloreankugel: I mean *during* the resizing it has to be loaded, where is it?
02:47:53Lloreannum1: That's a different matter altogether, and really no reason not to do that one.
02:48:40kugelLlorean: in the audio buffer I assume, before the playback starts
02:48:52Lloreankugel: Please don't "assume"
02:49:38JdGordonhmm.. would be nice if it could use the plugin buffer to resize.. and fail if it cant get that buffer
02:49:47kugelLlorean: Well, I'm not the right man then. idak has done most of it. He'll be able to tell you
02:49:48LloreanJdGordon: It should be able to use the audio buffer
02:50:03linuxstbJdGordon: How would failing be nice?
02:50:26LloreanJdGordon: Since it's loading like metadata, and it has to go on the audio buffer eventually, we should either be able to load the whole image then resize it in place, or load the image elsewhere, then resize it to where it belongs, and release the old one.
02:50:42JdGordonLlorean: it could, but if the block it gets insnt continuous it might have problems, and the buffer may need to be moved.. its easier if its a static buffer
02:50:55linuxstbOr resize as it's being loaded - i.e. not load the entire image into RAM first
02:51:01LloreanJdGordon: It'd break TSR plugins.
02:51:11Lloreanlinuxstb: IIRC it was down to needing one line of the image at a time.
02:51:19LloreanBut that may have been before an algorithm change.
02:51:20JdGordonof which we have 1... and when thats running people dont usually care about AA
02:51:49LloreanJdGordon: It'd make it impossible to test, for example, whether AA affects battery life in a measurable way after resizing is implemented.
02:52:18JdGordonif it can do one line at a time then it should be doable when its loaded seen as that reads it in one line at a time anyway
02:52:40linuxstbJdGordon: It breaks if someone is happening to use a plugin (or playlist viewer, or ...) when the track is buffered
02:52:42LloreanThough I think it might be better if we stored the un-resized image on the audio buffer.
02:52:54LloreanSuggest to users to store their images as "the largest size you'll use"
02:53:09LloreanIf you store the un-resized image, then the images will work even if there's a theme change during playback
02:54:11JdGordonyou want to resize it every time its drawn?
02:54:27LloreanIsn't album-art stored in the WPS structure once it's in-use, like the bitmaps in the WPS?
02:54:47JdGordonhmm.. yeah
02:54:48safetydanwhat about something similar to the codecs where an "image codec" is loaded in to the buffer along with the image?
02:54:52LloreanSo you'd resize on that copy
02:54:54linuxstbLlorean: A reasonably sized bmp isn't negligible in size - e.g. a 500x500 24-bit bmp is approx 750KB. So I don't think we should store the uncompressed version.
02:54:54kugelLlorean: The unresized version, yes
02:55:12Lloreanlinuxstb: People already use 200x200 ones.
02:55:25Lloreanlinuxstb: I'd say a reasonably sized one being "the largest size your WPSes support" isn't too much to ask
02:55:27LloreanSince they already do that anyway
02:55:49JdGordonis AA loaded manually on track change? I thought Nioc had it loading into the MoB already?
02:55:51linuxstbI would just want to store the original images I downloaded - most album-art I have is about 500x500
02:56:21Lloreanlinuxstb: I'd rather demand users perform a single resize, in advance, then resize that pre-resized image, than require rebuffering of all the album-art on WPS change.
02:57:15JdGordonsafetydan: the image codec idea has been brought up a few times... iirc the general consensus is that the extra code to support it would outweigh the beenfits untill we actually use more than one imgae format
02:57:21num1I'm starting to like Llorean's idea, adding a script to RBUtils that can resize images for you
02:57:27Lloreansafetydan: Well I think jpeg-in-the-core is still on the list of considered features anyway
02:58:03safetydanLlorean: having image codecs would allow support of multiple formats without adding core code...
02:58:22Lloreansafetydan: I doubt we'd want much more than BMP and JPEG anyway
02:58:25safetydana lot of work to get going though, and yeah messy interactions with WPS reload and track skipping back and forth
02:58:29kugelI just want to add, that album art is not the only use for resizing, but also icons to fit just every font size
02:58:33safetydanLlorean: and PNG
02:58:33LloreanAnd if you have to reserve room for the JPEG "codec", then you might as well just have JPEG in the core
02:58:52JdGordonsafetydan: also unless it can share the codec buffer, thats unaother 512kb wasted for it
02:59:09LloreanJdGordon: Doesn't have to be quite that big. Just as big as our largest image codec.
02:59:23*Llorean doesn't know why the codec buffer isn't sized to the largest codec instead of being locked in place.
02:59:26kugeland being able to get icons fitting the font size is desirable too imho
02:59:56linuxstbLlorean: Because some codecs use the unused RAM
03:00:00linuxstb(for data)
03:00:04Lloreanlinuxstb: All of it?
03:00:11LloreanWell then
03:00:21LloreanI was thinking "largest" as in "largest amount used", so I guess it is sized to fit.
03:00:37JdGordonkugel: does the current resizing patch let you specify the resized bmp size?
03:01:02LloreanIs the current one "size down" only, or does it scale up too?
03:01:06kugelno, but it should be doable relatively easy
03:01:25kugelLlorean: there's no limitation, you can scale in any direction
03:01:43kugelwith the 2 special cases removed too
03:01:52JdGordonLlorean: I suspect some of the codecs will use as much ram as they have availble.. so even if you double or half the codec buffer they will still use it all hapily
03:01:54LloreanCould it be made smaller if it was down only?
03:02:03kugelJdGordon: ooops, sorry. Yes it does
03:02:30linuxstbkugel: Looking at the patch, the "upscaling" code seems to be a special case as well. i.e. I have a feeling the last branch in the if will also upscale.
03:02:31num1how does the jpeg plugin handle really big images? does it load the entire image into memory?
03:02:48linuxstbnum1: It loads the entire _compressed_ image into memory
03:03:05kugellinuxstb: worth a try
03:03:05linuxstbBut resizes as it decompresses

03:20:13kugelI don't think it's good to use the plugin buffer for that. I can imagine plugins which start playback (e.g. pictureflow in the (far) future)

05:01:35dandersonright. I was looking on ebay for players, but their markings are bound to be quite inconsistent as well.

05:02:03dandersonI see.

13:11:26GodEaterrather than just generally including it under all
13:11:31BigBambiThat makes sense why it isn't, but the option all is very unclear now

13:29:43Nico_PMarfugga: you need to change LCD_WIDTH and LCD_HEIGHT, in firmware/config-ipodvideo.h
13:30:08MarfuggaGreat thanks a lot Nico_P
13:30:17Nico_Pmaybe some other things are needed, but that might be enough
13:31:21Nico_PI've never tried it, so you might have to figure some things out or ask more questions to people who know better than me
13:32:11MarfuggaYeah i'm reading right now how to build it, i.e. what compiler and what header files and stuff. thanks

13:34:15Marfuggabut yeah i might get a replacement screen if all else fails
13:37:29linuxstbMarfugga: Maybe the easiest would be to test the "custom list viewport" patch that is being developed. This will let you tell Rockbox to just use part of the screen for showing lists. But it means compiling Rockbox from source yourself, and apply the patch to the source code -

13:44:35linuxstbIt will cause problems with the bitmap build system - the selected bitmaps are based on LCD width/height.

13:45:43linuxstbUnless you choose the LCD size of another target's LCD.... But even then, you may need to modify the LCD driver to update the screen correctly.
13:46:04linuxstbSo I think the viewports option is easiest.
13:46:40Marfuggai'll try that then, so it lets you choose where on the screen to display the lists for browsin?
13:47:21Nico_Pthe sansa e200's LCD size would fit nicely
13:47:23linuxstbYes. But it's still an "in-progress" feature, and I've no idea how well it's working.

18:08:57mcuelenaere_wpyh: yes
18:09:19mcuelenaere_what you did yesterday is exactly the same as what the recovery program does
18:09:50mcuelenaere_wpyh: is your vx767 still broken?
18:10:15wpyhyesterday I have my sister's windows laptop to restore
18:10:48wpyhtoday, I didn't recompile the usbtool (so it's still the old usbtool which sends 10.bin), and when I ran it, my flash got erased again
18:11:13wpyhand now when I've recompiled usbtool, I can't get it to restore the player... weird
18:11:24mcuelenaere_that's because it loads onda.bin now
18:11:36kugelMarfugga: Just put "list viewport: -,160,-,-,-,-,-" into your config, this will make the list and filetree take the right half of the screen. I also recommend removing the changes to wps/WPSLIST in the patch file, so that the themes will not reset the custom list
18:11:53mcuelenaere_wpyh: if you reset the player and hold down VOL UP, doesn't it boot into UMS?

18:22:37wpyhthe lcd is garbled both when I reset the player, and when I hold VOL DOWN while resetting the player
18:23:20mcuelenaere_that means the recovery program changes the onda bootloader..
18:23:34mcuelenaere_or it flashes some program to the nand flash
18:24:02mcuelenaere_but you can get into USB UMS mode?
18:24:43wpyhyes, I can get into UMS mode if I hold VOL DOWN and reset, then connect the player to my laptop

18:27:12mcuelenaere_just reformat it and put sg301.hxf in (or vx767.hxf; dunno what's the case on your device) and reset + VOL DOWN

18:50:42LambdaCalculus37I need to clear some space for the compile process, then.
18:50:59domonokyand if you want to test the translation, you also need lrelease..
18:51:12LambdaCalculus37Also a Qt helper tool?
18:51:23domonokyyes, all included in Qt..
18:52:20LambdaCalculus37domonoky: OT... How much free space should I have to compile Qt? I have 3.82GB originally, and the compile process chewed it up like it was popcorn.
18:52:33domonokytheoretically you can edit translations by hand (they are xml). :-)
18:52:55domonokyis there no Qt binary release for Mac available ?
18:53:06wpyhI've extracted all the BIN resources from the firmware writer
18:53:20wpyhthere are 7 bin files. the first one is an inf file, the second one is a windows program, and the others are to be sent to the device. this is true for both the vx747 and vx76 writer programs
18:53:21wpyhfor the vx747 (since you're familiar with it), the 3rd bin resource is sent as 1.bin
18:53:27wpyhthe 4th bin resource is sent as 3.bin, the 7th bin resource as 5.bin, the 5th bin resource as 7.bin, and the 6th bin resource as 10.bin
18:53:36LambdaCalculus37domonoky: There is, but I wanted to compile from source for optimization.
18:53:38wpyh2.bin is 0x00 as a LE 32-bit int, 6.bin is 0x01 as a LE 32-bit int, 8.bin is also 0x01 as a LE 32-bit int, 9.bin is a single byte 0x01

19:40:19SoapI am not sure I follow the question pixelma.
19:40:35SoapI wasn't planning on moving broken themes, just unlicensed themes.
19:41:05 Quit nuonguy ("This computer has gone to sleep")
19:41:06Soapthe galleries will spend some time with broken themes on them until I (or others) get around to fixing the ones we have the rights to fix.

19:44:13Soap1 - Move all unlicensed themes to new gallery.
19:44:42pixelmaok, I will give them a license, need to read up on that a bit. I see lots of creative commons share alike, is that the recommended one? Pros and cons?
19:44:53Soap2 - Insert disclaimer on all current galleries than a permissive license is required of all themes from this day forward.

19:45:30LambdaCalculus37pixelma: Everyone seems to be using this CC license, specifically:
19:45:32Soap3 - Start verifying theme structure and packaging (including license in .wps and .cfg files as well as contact info)
19:45:39LambdaCalculus37That may be the best one.
19:45:42rasherLambdaCalculus37: Err.. we DONT want by-nc-sa

19:46:17scorche|shLambdaCalculus37: cc-by-sa
19:46:23rasherWe should require GPL or by-sa imho. Practically say the same
19:46:27BigBambiSoap: Sounds a good plan - if you want help let me know and we can split up galleries
19:46:37LambdaCalculus37Dunno why people are using it, but meh...
19:46:53rasherLambdaCalculus37: Because they're afraid some evil coorporation will profit from their work
19:47:00SoapBigBambi, will be hard to split the initial task as I will be cutting and pasting from one page into another. After step one the work is easily divisible.
19:47:09BigBambiWell, as and when
19:47:38LambdaCalculus37rasher: Ahh.
19:47:49*LambdaCalculus37 goes to read up on CC licensing some more
19:47:51rasherThe -nc is the problem, and not really compatible (in spirit) with the GPL
19:49:08LambdaCalculus37rasher: Is this a better license, then?
19:49:11Soapwell, we NEED redistribution and NEED modification rights (on the .wps files, not the images) and WANT modification rights on the images and WANT no stupid non-commercial restriction, right?
19:49:28BigBambiI think it should be allowed for the theme site though, but not for themes that want to be included
19:49:44rasherLambdaCalculus37: That's the one that's basically the same as the GPL
19:50:00BigBambiIdeally it wouldn't have -nc, but if people want it, I wouldn't ban it
19:50:01rasherSoap: I think the license should cover all included files
19:50:03linuxstbSoap: IMO We want modification rights on the images as well - to be able to fix things. At the very least, themes need new codec icons for newly added codecs.
19:50:32Soaplinuxstb, those would be additional images, not modified ones though would they not?
19:50:34linuxstbe.g. if you can't modify the image files, you couldn't convert bitmaps into bitmap strips for example.
19:50:44Soapsolid point.
19:50:58 Join mcuelenaere_ [0] (
19:50:58linuxstbSoap: Depending on the required background, font etc, they may be created by modifying existing ones
19:51:16linuxstbThat's how I've added codec icons to iCatcher in the past for example.
19:51:50rasherSoap: They could also be based on existing images
19:51:53linuxstbI'm happy to ignore themes where the authors want to restrict their use - the authors are free to distribute them elsewhere.
19:51:58Soapso demand redistribution, full modification, and ask for lack of use restrictions (stupid NC)?
19:52:06pixelmawhich reminds me that some SVN themes need a new codec icon...
19:52:16LambdaCalculus37Yep... a SAP icon.
19:52:35rasherI think we should really discourage NC. I'm in favour of not allowing it at all on the theme site
19:52:49 Quit mcuelenaere_ (Client Quit)
19:53:14BigBambiI'm not too bothered. I'd discourage but not ban personally, but I wouldn't argue for it :)
19:53:37SoapUnless more developers agree with you (and chime in before I start) how about we leave that detail for later?
19:53:40LambdaCalculus37A NC license should simply mean that their theme can not be included in Rockbox in the future.
19:53:47linuxstbThings will be so much simpler if we enforce a single license on the themes site - so people can pick and choose from existing themes to create new ones, without worrying about licenses
19:54:18rasherVery good point
19:54:28LambdaCalculus37Didn't that cause problems with some of senab's themes, anyway?
19:54:35kugelrasher: by-sa isn't GPL-compatible either
19:54:37SoapI agree in theory - but we already have a mess of CC licenses - are we going to throw them all out?
19:54:42BigBambiLambdaCalculus37: he has -nd too
19:54:56rasherkugel: It doesn't have to be - we're not compiling anything in.
19:54:57LambdaCalculus37BigBambi: Ack... no wonder.
19:55:06rasherkugel: I said in spirit.
19:55:11linuxstbSoap: I've always thought that we should throw everything out and start again with a new site.
19:55:26BigBambime too tbh - people can just resubmit
19:55:31*rasher doesn't see a reason to throw working and properly licensed themes out
19:55:36linuxstb(and let the authors upload their themes, as only they can tick the box to say they agree to the license we choose)
19:55:43kugelrasher: but in parenthesis, that doesn't count ;)
19:55:55BigBambiProblem is, the gallery is a mess now, and we don't have a themes site (cough) :)
19:56:16rasherWell if only it was available in svn
19:57:16BigBambirasher: If we are going to insist on a single license then either the author needs to do something, or if it is already suitably licensed one of us can fix and submit it to the new site
19:57:17SoapHow about I keep permissive licenses for now, demand GPL or CC attribution SA (is that not GPL compatible?) for all new ones, and make clear that only those which meet said standards will move on to the new page?
19:58:16*linuxstb commits the code he has so far for the new themes site
19:58:25rasherSoap: The theme doesn't need to be GPL compatible (none of the CC licenses apart from BY are).
19:58:50Soapby-sa isn't?
19:59:11rasherI agree with linuxstb that *ALL* themes should have the exact same license to make things less confusing
19:59:22wpyhmcuelenaere: did you find something interesting?
19:59:38rasherSoap: Nope. But that's okay, because we're not mixing the two - just distributing them alongside eachother
19:59:53kugelSoap: by-sa isn't. But as rasher said, it doesn't need to
20:00:05wpyhI found that if I use the vx747 bin files on the vx767, then used usbtool, the device will reset after 10.bin is sent, and then the 65 MB device will appear
20:00:31wpyhthen if I hold VOL DOWN while resetting the device, the flash (4 GB) will appear
20:00:33SoapI agree they all should be one license, but should I stop my proposed work until one is agreed on, or stick with "permissive licenses" for now?
20:00:58SoapI /really/ think we need to get the unlicensed crap out of the way sooner than later.
20:01:05kugelI'd say go for by-sa, it's easier to understand
20:01:13BigBambiSoap: I guess that depends whether you want to do it twice :)
20:01:52wpyhthe flash seems to be located *after* the 65 MB area, this is maybe two partitions/separate areas on the nand
20:02:00kugelmost themers actually don't care about licenses (from what I've seen), it with by-sa there's at least the chance, that the themers will actually read it
20:02:05rasherSoap: I'd say move anything but by-sa to the graveyard. We can always fix permissive themes from the graveyard and wait for the author to relicense
20:02:05SoapBigBambi, My goal is to have all themes in the Galleries _working_ and _fixable_ - we can filter by license on the transition to the new theme site.
20:02:22wpyhalso, the 65 MB device starts with SFHI, and ends in 0xdeadface values, while the 4 GB device is all 0xdeadface AFAICS
20:02:29linuxstbSoap: To be honest, I don't think it's worth doing anything... We just need to get a new themes site working, and then let authors resubmit. After the initial wave of uploading, we can then take a look at the Galleries and see if there are any themes left there that are not on the themes site, but have the same license as the one we choose.

20:43:26rasherI think we do
20:43:33linuxstb(based on the principle that the themes and theme authors should be treated the same as the code and the code authors)
20:44:18linuxstbThe upload page contains a link to a non-existent WhyRealNames wiki page which also needs writing...
20:44:51rasherThere's some text in the code guidelines to that effect, iirc
20:46:04rasherapparently 0 == '' evaluates to true.. or something.
20:49:30linuxstbrasher: There's also a nastier issue - dealing with targets that vary slightly (e.g. RTC vs no RTC, hold vs no hold), and also those targets with remotes. e.g. the ipod Color/Photo and H300 both have a 220x176 screen, but the H300 also has a remote.
20:50:54 Part Psyco
20:52:02pixelmathere's no target with no hold, even the soft hold targets can show their status in the WPS
20:52:41linuxstbOK, I'm sure I saw some things in the wps parser which were #ifdef'ed though. Meaning the WPS would fail to parse on some targets
20:52:45pixelmabut I also wanted to ask about the RTC tags... would it be possible to have an RTC available conditional?
20:52:46*linuxstb goes to check
20:54:46pixelmait needs to ask for a different status. The WPS tag wasn't available for a long time but the statusbar could show it and so I c+p'ed over

21:01:25rasherlinuxstb: so basically, validate_zip needs to be expanded?
21:03:00pixelmathe remotes question gets even harder with the 160x128x2 themes - there could be 2 different RWPS screens... (M5 and H100). Maybe we should put the rwps on their own page?
21:03:06linuxstbrasher: Yes. Plus the code to do something after it's finished....
21:03:16rasherAh right
21:04:23linuxstbpixelma: Do many people create rwps files? I mean is it something we could perhaps ignore for the first version?
21:08:12rasherlinuxstb: have you considered using the zip extension for php? Iirc, it's fairly widely supported. Never used it though
21:08:39linuxstbrasher: scorche mentioned it, but I was happy to just parse the output of unzip...
21:08:55pixelmasome do but I guess the major part is main screen WPS, maybe we could skip that for now. But I just realised that currently all RWPSs could be main screen WPSs for other targets - ifp, Logik Dax etc. in case of the Iriver remote and the Iaudio remote is the M3's "main screen"...
21:09:22linuxstbrasher: I'm assuming (!) that unzip is quite robust against badly formed input files. I've no idea about PHP's zip library...
21:09:23rasherlinuxstb: Just seems somewhat fragile and a bit clumsy to me.
21:10:13linuxstbIt's up to you.

21:36:16Soapif the RWPS is ignored then what is the issue with H300 and Color WPSs on the same page? Am I missing something?
21:36:23kugelSoap: I agree with linuxstb, the rwps should be #ifdef'd out, so that non-remotes should just ignore it
21:36:38peturI know, but it seems to cause the warnings
21:36:49linuxstbSoap: In that case, there isn't. But pixelma thought of a better example - 160x128x2 main LCD and two different remotes (iriver and iaudio)
21:38:23Soaplinuxstb, I see a potential source of confusion there, but not a deal breaker in my mind unless the presence of a iriver RWPS breaks parsing on the iaudio - which I'm assuming it does? If it doesn't there just needs to be a tick-box listing which RWPS is included?
21:38:58*bluebrother wonders if we could use on the themes site and if it would be nicer than using the command line zip
21:38:58Soap(Guess that leads to another question - there isn't a way to include both an iriver and an iaudio RWPS in one theme is there?)
21:39:13linuxstbbluebrother: rasher already wondered that...
21:39:15pixelmapetur: well I just svn up'd right before and didn't try compiling without the patch. But maybe your patch just unvails some mistakes in the languages because the SYSFONT strings are now gone? That's a wild guess though
21:39:28bluebrotherlinuxstb: :)
21:39:48linuxstbbluebrother: Read back about 30 minutes... ;)
21:39:52peturpixelma: my clean svn tree builds just fine
21:40:22kugelcould the rwps be in a seperate package, with a link to (e.g. click to download the rwps too), to avoid checkwps failing because of the rwps
21:40:40bluebrotherseems that happened just the minute(s) before I came in. Now someone give me enough time and I'll give that scripts a look ...
21:42:01bluebrotherwell, separating out the rwps for themes will also require changes to rbutil.
21:42:32bluebrotherhmm, and there currently isn't a script to generate the required output for that afaics.
21:42:34pixelmapetur: happens to me in hebrew.lang too (as I remember you saying yesterday) and one of those is in bulgarian.lang
21:42:35kugela little one, the link to the rwps would be stored in the metadata

21:43:27*petur still reading patch
21:43:34rasherMaybe it's time to dust off my convert-langv2-to-xmllang script - caught some errors last time I tried it
21:43:43linuxstbbluebrother: I just wanted to concentrate on the upload facility first. The rbutil integration could even wait until after the site goes live....
21:43:52bluebrothertrue. As I did the old one I might try creating a new one ...
21:44:30bluebrotheris there a reason you choose one big database file? Wouldn't it be nicer to split it up based on resolution?

22:03:26saratogai was just looking through the tremolo source code, and their version of tremor is likely faster then ours
22:03:55saratogaand they've put a lot of work into writing an asm MDCT, including parts we haven't bothered doing
22:04:05saratogai suspect we could benefit from that
22:04:07bertrikhmm, the sansa c200 is not PP5024 but PP5022, right?
22:04:13saratogano its 24
22:04:48pixelmapetur: the warnings go away if you use the none correctly in the default case
22:04:58linuxstbsaratoga: I thought the AMS part was physically separate?
22:05:40bertrikyeah, exactly, I thought PP5024 was basically PP5022 + AS3514, but the c200 has a separate AS3514
22:05:50saratogai could be mistaken
22:05:58*linuxstb spots a picture of the AS3514 here -
22:06:42saratogashame we took the time to write our own ASMed Tremor when there was already a very well developed one for arm
22:06:58pixelmapetur: so I guess those strings weren't used before but the sysfont equivalents? And so the bug in the two languages didn't show... ?

22:44:46SoapMy intentions were to make the existing WPS galleries full of only themes which A-were permissively licensed, B-worked, and thus C-Ready for upload to the new site once it was up and running.
22:45:37SoapIf you want me to change my goals to "permissively licensed and / or working" I can do that too.
22:46:29linuxstbSoap: That's probably was what I meant ;) It just seems that the Archos gallery is a special case, as most (all?) of those themes probably still work. Reading your comments again, I agree with your plan for the others.

22:53:37SoapThe plan was one huge graveyard, but I can split it.
22:53:56linuxstbIt's up to you - but I'm guessing the majority of themes will be there, at least initially.
