#rockbox log for 2008-08-23

00:00:15pixelmait does currently
00:00:39amiconnyes, but probably it wasn't intended that way
00:01:02amiconnThe H1x0 port existed well before the H10 port
00:01:48pixelmahuh? What does this have to do with it?

00:11:19peturpixelma: I tried the variations of 9276 and I'm going to commit your version of it - is that ok for you?
00:15:04pixelmahmm... and not up my commit count? ;) It's ok for me though, then it doesn't look like I'm just committing it because it's mine... and it's good to know someone else prefers it too :)
00:16:48peturI was just going over the tracker items I'm following to try to close some....

00:32:36gevaertsrasher: good question. FS #8562 provides a place to put test patches, but we could just as well close it and open a new bug for the timing issues
00:32:59rasherI was under the impression that that's already happening in another task?
00:33:18gevaertsYou mean FS #8663? That's the sd corruption bug
00:33:53gevaerts"timing issues" == "hub issues"

00:34:25rasherI just noticed that 8562 hasn't had any activity since May, so I thought it was just forgotten
00:35:05desowingevaerts: the bug I experienced is with internal flash
00:35:14peturBagder: here?
00:35:26gevaertsdesowin: internal flash is sd (except for the actual enclosure)
00:35:34desowinah, ok
00:36:18gevaertsFrom the CPU's point of view, the sansas just have two sd card interfaces
00:36:36peturBagder (for the logs): it would be nice to give logbot some functionality to let us kick the buildserver through it.
00:37:56rasherpetur: I think it should be svn based instead

00:38:33rasherCommit a certain file, and magic happens
00:38:53pixelmapetur: one file could have been deleted from the cabbiev2 image directory (in SVN) - wpsbackdrop-128x64x1.bmp is not needed at the moment.
00:39:17peturpixelma: oops, forgot that
00:39:57gevaertsrasher: that could be a good idea, as it handles the permissions issue cleanly. Maybe it should be in a different branch though
00:40:22pixelmapetur: it's not that important, would just reduce download size of the source a bit.

00:47:51EpicFaili'm sure its a v1 cuz it came with v1 firmware when i first got
00:48:12amiconnE.g. it completely removes the voice string for LANG_REMOVE_MMC, while it should stay for the Ondios
00:48:26EpicFailpretty sure its not R version
00:48:48 Quit erram (Remote closed the connection)
00:49:08rasheramiconn: But there was no voice string for ondio*

00:50:39amiconnSo it effectively didn't fix it. It replaced one bug with another
00:51:10rasherI never claimed it'd make it perfect, but it brought it more in line with english.lang

01:12:30EpicFailhmm just tried drag and drop a song into music folder in mtp mode; the file is physically on the player but not being registered when i go to play music
01:13:55BigBambiEpicFail: could you try running chkdsk on it?
01:14:12lurkapupin appleOS mode the battery shows about 75%, in rockboxOS it will only run from 100% for a couple of minutes then shuts down cause of low battery

02:47:16mcuelenaereCasainho: you'll need to set up a some interrupt handling code and link a timer to the tick increase function (+ other stuff)
02:48:48Casainhoso, kernel just needs a timer to provide the tick increment?

02:49:42CasainhoI think on this ARM9, it have a programmable interrupt controller :-)
02:49:43mcuelenaere+ you'll need to handle thread switching (but this is already done for ARM(9) targets)

03:24:05thrashusdo the sansa mp3's use rockbox firmware and can i just write plugins for it so i can make the player run programs i write
03:25:39Unhelpfulyou can install rockbox as a replacement for vendor firmware on *some* sansa players
03:26:39thrashusok so they don't actually use rockbox, this is a replacement
03:26:54thrashusso how do i get started writing plugins

03:27:56thrashusis there a rockbox emulator for the pc that i can start playing with
03:29:18thrashusaditionaly are you allowed to sell these players with rockbox on it or the manufacturers not allow you to do that
03:29:48Unhelpfuli'm not a lawyer, but i don't see any reason you couldn't resell a used player w/ rockbox installed
03:31:11Lloreanthrashus: Remember that Rockbox is GPL licensed. If you sell a player with rockbox installed and your own plugin, you have to include the code for the plugin which they can legally give away for free if they want.
03:31:30Unhelpfulthere is that, as well
03:31:50Unhelpfulfor getting set up to develop for rockbox:
03:33:39thrashusis there anyway aroung that license
03:33:55Unhelpfule-series sansas that can run rockbox are likely to *already* be used or refurb, also
03:35:10thrashusdoes rockbox offer any other licenses
03:35:14Unhelpfulyes, don't use rockbox.
03:36:01thrashusi can't find any licensing information on rockbox
03:36:58Lloreanthrashus: Rockbox is GPLv2 licensed. You'll find the license file in the docs folder, I believe
03:37:04LloreanGPLv2 or later, rather
03:37:18LloreanThere is no way around the license if you wish to distribute Rockbox or code based off of Rockbox code.
03:40:40thrashusI know there is way around gpl if you wrap gpl stuff in one program it make that program gpl. but you have another program that uses that other program via IPC for example. so the second program doesn't have any gpl stuff in and is therefore proprietary but i don't think I could that here
03:42:52 Join avis- [0] (
03:43:00Unhelpfuland in a linux environment, that might be pretty easy to do. rockbox is not on full-blown operating system in that sense, it is designed for a specific purpose, and while it can load extension plugins, these don't have the same set of capabilities as a program on another operation sytem might expect to have.
03:43:33thrashusthat is why i think it would be rather hard to do in this case
03:44:00LloreanIt'd basically require you to rewrite a not-insignificant portion of Rockbox.

06:02:16Lloreanthrashus: To be a plugin you must include the plugin API. Without it, your plugin will not work.
06:02:20LloreanThe plugin API is GPL licensed.
06:02:44scorche|shthrashus: is there a specific reason you wanted a non-GPL plugin?
06:03:54thrashuswell i was going to make an application so i could sell to some companies
06:04:47scorche|shthe GPL does not restrict that
06:05:44thrashusi will have to distribute the source and they can distribute the binaries with out buying it
06:07:00scorche|shof course
06:07:50thrashusI don't think thats a good business model
06:08:43scorche|shthen you would probably be better off forgetting about rockbox and writing your own firmware...
06:09:45thrashuswell i am looking into uCLinux
06:09:58beta2kI don't think the licencing model of Rockbox would allow for a non-gpl plugin...
06:10:16beta2kAs I understand GPL (and I don't really grasp it all)
06:10:41Lloreanbeta2k: The way the plugin model is now, no, you couldn't make a non-GPL plugin.
06:10:44beta2kSince your plugin would be required to include the plugin API to work, your code must also fall under GPL
06:10:53thrashusand ipodLinux SansaLinux which are based on uCLinux and use some rockbox
06:10:58scorche|shthrashus: and that would be off-topic for this channel then
06:11:07beta2kIf the plugin API was LGPL then you would be ok
06:11:21beta2kbut it's not :)
06:13:11beta2kYou can get away with it in Linux since you can write software which doesn't include GPL'd code
06:13:24beta2kAs soon as you include GPL'd code your product becomes GPL
06:14:09beta2kThat's why LGPL was created
06:14:12LloreanAnd we've established Rockbox plugins require the use of GPL code
06:14:28LloreanYou're wandering well into off-topic territory, so I must remind you the channel has guidelines.

09:34:08toshibasuksi found the problem i think, it comes up as a local disk
09:34:21toshibasuksinstead of a USB mass storage device
09:34:44toshibasuksdoes fdisk work in command prompt?
09:35:20*scorche|sh wonders where else fdisk works
09:36:10toshibasuksmy player shows up as 2 local disks one that is 150mb and one that is 27Gb
09:36:23toshibasukshow do i partition it properly
09:37:02scorche|sh....why are you repartitioning it?
09:37:10Unhelpfuli'm really not sure? it seems to me an OS that determines a disk attached after startup not to be removable is broken by design.
09:37:44toshibasuksbecause i need to re-partion it so it shows up as a USB mass storage device rather than a local disk
09:38:15toshibasuksand fdisk isnt wokring
09:38:23Unhelpfuli don't really think messing with the partition table will fix that
09:38:39toshibasuksi dunno because i never partiotioned it in the first place
09:38:55Unhelpfulno, firmware did that when you did recovery
09:39:41toshibasuksaw ok, the nk.bin file?
09:40:37toshibasukscould i put songs on it while i am in bootloader usb mode?
09:40:43toshibasukswould that make a difference
09:41:01Unhelpfulas far as i know, the recovery process partitions and formats the drive before asking you to send firmware. at least, it's always reset any partition flags that i changed, and reformatted the data partition
09:41:25Unhelpful... what would make a difference would be properly flushing data to disk and unmounting it before you remove it.
09:41:45toshibasuksand how do you do that, i dont quite understand what you mean by flushing
09:43:32Unhelpfulin windows, that whole process is what "safely remove" does.
09:44:17toshibasuksah ok, but it doesnt show up in the safelty remove list
09:44:24toshibasuksi have that screen up now
09:45:04toshibasuksbecasue it shows as a local disk
09:47:23graimaybe it would appear there if you used the bootloader usb thing?
09:47:25*grai is totally ignorant
09:48:02toshibasuksno, in bootloader it shows as 2 local disks still

10:07:34toshibasuksi think it will because, it will change it to a USB mass storage
10:07:40toshibasuksthere is an option in fdisk to do so
10:07:55toshibasuksto change it from a local hard disk to a DOS drive
10:08:05toshibasuksanyways thats a little off topic
10:09:11mrkikotoshibasuks: if you get talking with important people here, may be they don't kick you :)
10:09:26scorche|shit could have bad effects....but i am not that well versed in the gigabeat S
10:09:55Chronontoshibasuks. I don't think "Local Disk" and USB Mass Storage device are mutually exclusive.
10:11:52Unhelpfulscorche: it will repartition, reformat, and beg for firmware if it doesn't like something you do to the disk
10:12:01toshibasuksa Local disk shows up as a system disk, sort of like an external hardrive, so it will allow you to install prgrams on it etc
10:12:31toshibasuksi wont to re-partiion it while keeping the firmware on it
10:12:38Unhelpfulthat's a windows distinction, and i don't really know what magic it uses to decide if a disk should be treated as removable
10:13:00toshibasuksice used fdisk before and u can do that, but atm i cant figure out how to make my player just 1 drive
10:13:05ChrononUSB disks are considered removable.
10:13:08 Join snoh [0] (
10:13:19Unhelpfultoshibasuks: that you can't do.
10:13:33Unhelpfulit has to be two partitions, one is for firmware, the other for data
10:13:57Unhelpfulif you change it from that, the OF boot sequence will "fix" it for you
10:14:10toshibasuksah yeh
10:14:21Unhelpfulsimilarly if you try to format either of the partitions yourself, since they will then not have the right tfat magic
10:14:41toshibasukswill the player stay in bootloader mode if i restrat my computer and boot from disk?
10:15:02toshibasuksi only want to partition the 27GB
10:15:53Unhelpfulerm, no, if you restart your computer, a usb detach will likely register on the player, and it will continue its boot sequence
10:16:36Unhelpfulyou need to figure out why your computer thinks that *this* particular usb device doesn't need to be safely removed, and i doubt that messing with the partition table will fix that
10:17:13toshibasuksyes but if it is acting as a hard disk , then it should act like a removal harddrive, and stay active while the computer is on
10:18:02n1sthis sounds more like a windows config issue than a rockbox or even partitioning issue
10:18:57Unhelpfuli'm agreed, you really need to find somebody who can help you with a windows problem, because this isn't a rockbox problem.
10:19:02toshibasukshmm yeh, still i think windows when i was installing rockbox using sendfirm might have recognised it as a local disk because of its intial size
10:19:16toshibasuksok will do
10:19:28toshibasuksill browse the windows chat or something
10:21:12toshibasukswhat is the direcetory structure like in the root drive in rockbox
10:21:18toshibasukswhen you have songs on it
10:21:41toshibasuksi might create my songs first then instal rockbox onto it after i have transfered my songs

13:56:08bughunter2i talked with him about it, and he said i should ask here / submit to flyspray

14:54:47BigBambigevaerts: me neither really
14:55:16BigBambisomehow repartitioning was going to change how rb usb interacted with windows!
14:55:39gevaertsI'd let him repartition. The OF will fix that anyway
14:55:43BigBambiall he needed to do was properly safely remove anyway, as far as I could tell

14:58:50gevaertsAre you sure you bricked it? c250s are pretty resilient
14:59:40gevaertsAnd once rockbox works well on a player, it _is_ supported
15:00:29lee321987well, I re-formatted with the HP USB tool, and unplugged it before I put ".rockbox" folder back on, and now neiter Recovery/Manufacture/OF boot works
15:01:22lee321987just a black screen with the button light lit, and Windows makes the "Device Failed To Connect" sound.
15:01:39gevaertsThat looks like manufacturer mode
15:02:06lee321987i tried an Ubuntu Live CD - still not recognized.
15:02:22gevaertsWhat do you call "not recognized" ?
15:02:52lee321987did not see the "16 MB" drive

15:58:50BigBambiWhich is?
15:58:51jhMikeSApproximately 4.2V
15:59:09*gevaerts assumes that "the right place" is "before it catches fire"
15:59:10jhMikeSit should hang around there for a bit and stop when the current goes below 70mA
15:59:22BigBambiOK, will do. It is at 3.9V now, at constant current of ~390 mA
15:59:34jhMikeSsound about right
15:59:49BigBambiexcelent :)
16:00:04jhMikeSbattery protection should kick in above 4.3V :)
16:00:17BigBambiI'll keep an eye on it :)
16:00:37BigBambiBattery temp is slowly rising too - started off at 27 degC and has just hit 30 degC
16:00:50jhMikeSthe hardware on the battery is the final say in that
16:01:27BigBambiI'm sure it is fine, thanks very much for this, it is much appreciated
16:01:33jhMikeSBigBambi: it will warm up but that's just from being on, charging actually only brings it up 1-2 deg C
16:01:49BigBambiah, right
16:02:39BigBambiI'm strangely interested in watching a voltage slowly creep up
16:03:43jhMikeSit's never gonna be a speed charger either, the hardware design limits it so it can't even exceed what's safe for the battery since higher-value sense resistor that what the chip datasheet specifies
16:05:31jhMikeSBigBambi: it takes a long time with retailos doesn't it?\

16:25:41jhMikeSIt's CC/CV switching isn't really all that precise or useful unfortunately

16:27:57CasainhoI am afraid that I will
16:28:14BigBambijhMikeS: Ah, so that part is hardware?
16:28:16domonokyCasainho: you can just use "svn update" to merge changes in rockbox svn, to your local tree..
16:28:47jhMikeSBigBambi: yes, basically the software monitors and turns the charger on or off but regulation is hardware
16:29:33Casainhodomonoky: but, will not happen some big not phased versions, when I will try to commit the patchs???

17:44:02holscherhow come my ipod wont turn on?
17:44:23BigBambiYou're going to have to give *slightly* more information than that
17:44:44gevaertsOne possible reason could be that it is already on
17:44:54LambdaCalculus37Maybe you should politely ask it to turn on. :)
17:44:54BigBambiIt got run over by a lorry?

17:48:05BigBambiOr did that patch enable hitherto hidden wifi and remote access on the S, and not just charging as you claimed? :)

18:08:20jhMikeSIt _could_ be pushed a little more since it relaxes by about 40mV but a little under is better for the battery life
18:09:28saratogajhMikeS: what does the SHAREDBSS attribute actually do? force uncached DRAM?
18:09:37BigBambiJust hit 4.201V and 70mA, and now it says 4.172V, 0mA, and status discharging
18:09:56jhMikeSBigBambi: sounds like it went ok
18:10:03BigBambiI think so :)
18:10:22jhMikeSsaratoga: uncached memory that's just like normal BSS...good for dual-core objects
18:10:29LloreanjhMikeS: you mentioned USB charging works. Have you tried it while holding the button that prevents a USB mount, so the disk isn't always spinning?
18:10:36BigBambiSo if I leave it on and plugged in, does it do some sort of trickle charge, or does it discharge to a certain level then charge again, or....
18:10:55saratogajhMikeS: thanks. also what does declaring a shared struct IDATA_ATTR CACHEALIGN_ATTR actually do?
18:11:07jhMikeSLlorean: nope, not yet. I wonder if I enabled the key.
18:11:18saratogaIDATA should be uncached right?
18:11:24jhMikeSsaratoga: IDATA_ATTR= initialized IRAM data, CACHEALIGN_ATTR=align data start to cache line boundary
18:11:30LloreanjhMikeS: I'm not sure that the key wasn't already enabled, actually. Since it's more USB related than charging related.
18:12:02saratogawhy would you want to align uncached data to cache line boundaries?
18:12:05jhMikeSLlorean: I recall disabling that to get the port to compile in the pas
18:12:11BigBambiHolding menu whilst inserting USB doesn't mount
18:12:16BigBambiI've just tried it
18:12:44BigBambiremoving AC then plugging USB like that has also set it off charging again
18:12:48jhMikeSsaratoga: you wouldn''s for keeping cached data used by one core out of the cache lines of another core
18:13:57saratogabut why would that be helpful for data in IRAM? shouldn't that never end up in a cacheline regardless?
18:14:47jhMikeSsaratoga: where did it come up that it was used for IRAM data?
18:14:53saratogai'm referinng to this in the SPC codec: static struct Spc_Emu spc_emu IDATA_ATTR CACHEALIGN_ATTR;
18:15:25*gevaerts just found that he uploaded a dummy c250erase that only prints status messages but doesn't actually write...
18:15:26jhMikeSsaratoga: because IDATA_ATTR is overridden in that codec and DRAM used instead
18:15:49BigBambigevaerts: for the chap earlier
18:15:59gevaertsyes. No wonder it's so fast
18:16:01saratogai will have to look more closely at your code then
18:16:16BigBambigevaerts: Poor guy :) Keeping having to reboot etc. :)
18:16:28gevaertsI guess he'll be back when he notices that it still doesn't work...
18:16:35jhMikeSsaratoga: the main header #undefs stuff for ARM cpus since they have good caches
18:16:48saratogaah ok
18:17:10saratogai'm just using IRAM for all shared structs anyway, so it sounds like I don't need to be too concerned about this
18:17:18saratogawas thinking that maybe there was a futher limitation on how IRAM was shared
18:17:48jhMikeSsaratoga: IRAM is a do-what-you-please re: cores
18:18:12saratogasounds good
18:18:36jhMikeSsaratoga: I think n1s determined the SPC codec ran faster with DRAM rather than wide IRAM usage.
18:19:07saratogai've noticed that IRAM can very rarely be much slower, but never figured out a pattern to it

22:14:51scorche|shAlext1232: please write complete thoughts in one is much harder to read when you use the enter key as punctuation
22:14:54Alext1232and some songs off those 2 cds arnt showing up in the database
22:14:56BigBambi_Alext1232: Please don't use the enter key as punctuation, it makes it much harder to read
22:15:07Alext1232? I m not
22:15:13scorche|shyou are
22:15:14DBUGEnqueued KICK BigBambi_
22:15:25Alext1232ohhhhhhh sorrrrry i got it
22:15:54BigBambi_So you copied some songs over, initialised the database, and not all are showing up?
22:16:00Alext1232ok well, soo random songs off of these 2 cds i ripped are not showwing up in my databse... and i have tried everythign
22:16:03domonokybluebrother: wouldnt it be better to put this file and url setting in the bootloaderInstallBase Constructor ? (ofcourse then those classes need access to settings)..
22:16:33Alext1232they show up in the files folders on the device, and on the native sansa firmware
22:16:37 Quit stoffel_ ("leaving")
22:17:31bluebrotherdomonoky: well, my idea was to minimize dependencies to other classes, like the logger (done by signals) or settings
22:17:53bluebrotheryou could use an overloaded constructor that takes these values instead
22:18:27bluebrotherand for the h10pure, my idea was to extend it later with setBlFile(QStringList)
22:18:59domonokyah, jeah, it maybe better to leave it without depencies to settings..
22:19:02Alext1232whoop... i just fixed it
22:19:30gevaertsWhat changed?
22:19:44bluebrothergevaerts: magic?
22:19:47Alext1232I just updated the tags on the mp3s... I literally just changed a letter of the artist
22:20:30gevaertsDo your mp3 files have embedded album art ?
22:20:51Alext1232i dont think so
22:21:17domonokybluebrother: from the irivertools folder, only the irver checksums are used ? (maybe move this files, and remove the dir completly)
22:21:37domonokyor perhaps move alle bootloader related files into a "bootloader" dir :-)
22:22:29bluebrotherI was thinking about that too, but there's also this perl script to create the md5sums
22:23:08Alext1232alright.. well thanks for all your help guys
22:23:16bluebrotherstill, making the folder structure cleaner is also something on my todo :)
22:23:44domonokyjup, i also want to seperate GUI from non-gui files..
22:23:44bluebrothermaybe move the script one folder up and modify it so it puts the output in the correct location
22:24:30bluebrotheryeah, my idea was to create a gui/ and cli/ subfolder, and leave all shared stuff at its current place.
22:25:42bluebrotherthat way we could simply use the sub-src template for both variants, or use two pro files in the main folder
22:25:45domonokybut maybe also a core directory with subfolders like, "bootloader" "themes" ... may help to structure rbutil a bit..
22:26:22CtcpIgnored 2 channel CTCP requests in 6 seconds at the last flood
22:26:22*domonoky would like gui/ cli/ and core/ in the rbutilqt directory.. :-)
22:26:22bluebrotherhmm. How about rbutilqt/core, rbutilqt/gui and rbutilqt/cli?
22:26:55bluebrotherthen require all files in core/ and cli/ to not include QtGui but only QtCore
22:27:44bluebrothershuffling the files around shouldn't be too hard −− and leave all stuff that's not cleaned up in the rbutilqt/ folder
22:28:29domonokybut thats for after the release...
22:28:31bluebrothermaybe it would be good to finish the bootloader stuff, then start changing the structure
22:29:07bluebrotherand introduce the cli folder even if it's empty. Then adjust your cli work and put it there ...
22:30:12domonokythats a plan .. :-)

22:55:50pixelmaBagder: did you already find the time to fix the voice links? n1s also noticed some other weirdnesses earlier
22:56:29BagderI fixed some problems today that I think were related/causing this
22:57:03Bagderwhat other weirdnesses was that?
22:57:21Lloreansaratoga: I know the S's CPU is faster at the same clock speed than the F, but if I recall current mpegplayer benchmarks don't show it being "tremendously" so. I'd imagine the video coprocessor would probably have to do more than just scaling, but I think it's designed specifically to handle certain common operations in video decoding anywya.
22:58:44pixelmaBagder: look at one of the daily build pages - the zip size is much smaller (missing .rock) and also the maps zip is missing
22:59:13pixelmalog at 21:41
22:59:15Bagderah right, the local compiler was messed up so all locally compiled things were crap

23:54:33saratogaLlorean: the peak performance of the S is much, much higher, though it requires code to be rewritten to take advantage of the vector fp unit
23:55:13XavierGrLlorean: But doesn't the Gigabeat S use lower clock speed than the maximum?
23:55:34saratoga1 fixed point multiply-add on the F takes 6 cycles in the ALU, while S can do 2 fp multiply-adds every clock
23:55:36 Nick oofus[away] is now known as oofus (
23:56:15LloreanXavierGr: Yes. My statement doesn't depend on that.
23:56:17saratogapeak throughput for multiply adds is something like 24 times higher on the S then the F
23:56:37Lloreansaratoga: So with optimization the mpeg codec can be a lot faster?
23:57:05saratogayeah I think so
23:57:35saratogathough i'm not that familar with the plugin so I could be wrong
23:58:58XavierGrLlorean: I just thought you didn't know and you assumed that the gain wasn't much with a comparison max to max
23:58:59LloreanWell, that's still more work than just "add scaling" which is what I wanted to suggest.
