00:16:51Casainhohello again :-)
00:17:28CasainhoI have a question about RB bootloader: is really need to use RB kernel on bootloader?
00:18:02Casainhois possible to launch RB firmware without initialize RB kernel?
00:18:54 Quit [CBR]Unspoken|w (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:19:14 Quit snoh (Remote closed the connection)
00:19:24CasainhoBagder: are you there?
00:19:26Bagderyou mean init the BSS or what is "initialize" in this context?
00:21:16CasainhoBagder: well, I have one bootstrap, I could have another bootloader like the RB one, but based on bootstrap...
00:22:09CasainhoI would like to know if for launching RB firmware the important it to mount the FAT partition and read the RB firmware....
00:22:20Bagdersince the rb bootloader may get too big, why not stat with bootstrap loading the rb bootloader?
00:23:26Bagderno, rockbox cannot have opinions from where you load it before you have started it
00:23:39Casainhoyes, bootstrap loads bootloader.... but, the bootloader could be based on bootstrap code and not on RB bootloader code - and why? because bootstrap code is done, and maybe is simple to add it FAT library and ATA
00:23:48Bagderbut putting it on the fat fs is how we do on all targets of today
00:24:12Bagderbootstrap is done sure but bootloader is done as well
00:24:30 Quit bertrik ("Leaving")
00:24:52Casainhobootloader is done not for this ARM at91sam9260
00:25:02Bagderno, but for several other ARM based ones
00:25:05Casainhobut bootstrap is
00:25:13Bagderyes, but that lacks a lot of other stuff instead
00:25:31Casainhostuff, as what? (sorry, I ignore)
00:25:40Bagderand we want bootloaders to share code with other bootloaders of course
00:26:03Bagderstuff like fat, display code, buttons

00:26:41Casainhorockbox FAT library needs kernel running? or can run without kernel?

00:27:00gevaertsIt depends on the rockbox disk API
00:27:07Casainhosaying in another way, could I use RB FAT library using the bootstrap?
00:27:23Bagdereverything is possible
00:27:37Bagderthe question is not that, the question is which is the sensible way
00:28:00LloreanCasainho: You may not be able to see it, but it makes more sense to adapt the existing Rockbox bootloaders than to try to adapt your bootstrap code.
00:28:34LloreanThis is what they're trying to tell you.
00:29:27Bagderand you want that in the end anyway when you want your code to go into the rockbox code base
00:30:19Casainhookok - I think I understand −− but as I am not familiar with RB code (not even with much others), for me is almost the same −− thats why I am stuck with bootstrap, because it's done for this MCU and is well commented - this are advantages for me
00:30:23 Part livingdaylight
00:30:45Bagderso read that code and use all the info you gain there when you adapt the rockbox bootloader
00:32:21Casainholooks like the way to go.......
00:33:38Casainhoanother question: does the RB firmware do again the system_init()???
00:33:58Casainhoor is not need since bootlaoder did that before?
00:34:37Bagderwhy does that matter?
00:34:47Bagderand btw: find . -name "*.c" | xargs grep system_init
00:36:52CasainhoI just would like to understand... because bootstrat do system_init(), bootloader also.... so I was thinking if firmware also does
00:37:01 Quit ompaul (Client Quit)
00:38:14Bagderbootstrap is not rockbox code
00:38:52Casainhoyes, I know, but it initializes also the system....
00:38:56Bagderfirmware can do it sure, in rolo etc
00:40:22CasainhoI was asking for myself if every time there is like a jump over each code load stage, there is need to initialize the system −−- bootstrap -> bootloader -> firmware
00:41:00 Quit faemir ("Leaving")
00:41:04Bagdereverything initializes what it needs to
00:41:23Bagderand it usually depends on what it knows the prior stage did

00:58:24DhraakellianI was thinking mp3 or wavpack
00:58:52Dhraakellianand I don't have a big enough microSD card to record 18 hours of wav
00:58:52gevaertsDhraakellian: why not try all of them? That will give a lot more information
01:00:44gevaertsHow low can you set the quality? Is 11kHz 8 bit mono possible?
01:02:33amiconnOn Sansa, recording only does 22.05kHz, 16 bit
01:02:47amiconnSelecting stereo/mono is possible

03:53:27advcomp2019not everyone is at their computer and if they are they might not be looking
03:54:02Segadudeyea ok
03:54:18Segadudedid you see my problem above?
03:55:41advcomp2019yes but since i do not have an ipod i am not sure
03:56:43Segadudeshould I ask on the fourm then?
03:57:13advcomp2019you can stay here
03:57:36Segadudeok them
03:58:18Soapdid you do a Menu + Select hard reboot of the iPod?
03:58:25LloreanSegadude: Well, iPodWizard probably uninstalls the Rockbox bootloader

03:58:48LloreanSince it modifies the original firmware partition, it's entirely reasonable that it might remove Rockbox in doing so, depending on how it does it.

03:59:13Segadudethis is the second theme and it didn't do that before. So should I reinstall the bootloader

03:59:26Segadudesoap: yes i did
03:59:37_tweakquick question: are you guys planning on porting over the bootloader to bsd?
03:59:58Soapthen, Segadude, Llorean's suspicion is correct - it appears you no longer have the Rockbox bootloader. Reinstall it.
04:00:10Segadudeok thats guys!
04:00:16Llorean_tweak: The bootloader is what you install onto the player. It wouldn't make sense to port it to BSD...
04:00:16Segadudethanks sorry

04:01:05Llorean_tweak: That's a vague statement. Please specify what program you're referring to, as there's a variety of ones for different players, as well as the general-purpose RBUtil that works for nearly all of them.
04:01:15Segadudebrb let you know how it goes
04:02:13_tweakLlorean, for example: ipodpatcher.exe
04:02:37Llorean_tweak: Have you tried compiling a BSD version. I know it compiles for Linux at least.
04:02:54_tweakwhere can I find the source tree to pull it down?
04:03:10Llorean_tweak: Have you had a look around at all?
04:03:38_tweakLlorean, I read the manual

04:15:21kugelJdGordon: Let me ask a question about my custom list patch. I'm not sure what to do about option_screen and derivatives (e.g. set_int). While option_screen accepts a parent, set_int does not. And I'm not really keen on passing a parent to set_int, because it's meant to be as easy as possible
04:15:44 Quit Thundercloud (Remote closed the connection)
04:16:30 Join miepchen^schlaf_ [0] (
04:18:01kugelSo, I've implemented a function (to the screen api) to read the current viewport, which will automatically be passed to option_screen in set_int, so that set_int will use the viewport of the previous screen. While this is very useful IMHO and can be possibly used for other stuff as well, I'm not really sure if it's "right", since a way to read the current vp from the apps code wasn't...
04:18:03kugel...implemented in the first place by linuxstb

17:00:01Slasherikugel: sorry, I have just had too much other work to do..
17:00:02kugelit seems to cause database instabilities, like songs disappear randomly from the database without doing anything. I don't know why. It seems to happen no matter if the sort tags are actually used or not
17:00:48Slasherikugel: interesting, i will check the patch if i can see something causing that
17:02:20kugelSlasheri: I *guess* it has something to do with memory. My guess is that I've added 4 tags to the tagcache (it says committing 1/13 etc at database building), but I haven't modified memory allocation or the like

When a album had 20 songs, it had only 17 after some days, and they won't come in until reinitialization b) songs disappear while browsing the database, but reappear after a reboot c) the database needs to reinitialized noticeably more often due to "database not ready"
17:08:59kugelgenerally, the database is rendered useless
17:10:30Slasheriinteresting.. so something is corrupting the db

17:12:27saratogais the plan to branch the SVN code at the end of the feature freeze, or does the freeze end right as the release comes out?

19:59:26amiconnpixelma: The mono LCD drivers don't have a concept of foreground and background colours
19:59:48amiconnForeground is always black, and background is always white (inverse on mr100 of course)

20:33:43amiconnThe usb detection code seems to do its job (as it wouldn't go into the usb screen when it only detects a charger), but it looks like it might overwrite something (stack overflow? out of bounds access somewhere?)

21:17:07amiconnThere's more stuff that can be done

21:21:10Lloreanamiconn: Besides, once 3.0 is out, we can get away with turning on USB, seeing if we get any new or useful feedback, and if it turns out to be too problematic for the public, turning it off again.
21:21:34amiconnThe problem is that audiohw_disable_recording() simply disables the whole codec
21:21:40LloreanI think having a "release" build for people to fall back to gives us a lot more freedom with actually *trying* things instead of keeping them on the backburner forever.
21:21:52Lloreanamiconn: That would be bad...
21:22:02amiconnit *is* bad

21:37:17pixelmathat needs to be done in english.lang first (probably all at once) and you can't do that before

21:59:11kolegahey i have a question
21:59:38stripwaxkolega - feel free to ask it
21:59:41kolegaa long time ago i had installed rockbox on my ipod 5.gen
21:59:49kolegawith an rockbox installer
22:00:14kolegabut now i'd find the rockbox installer
22:00:45gevaertsYou want the thing called Rockbox Utility or rbutil
22:01:03*bluebrother doesn't see a problem here
22:01:16*stripwax isn't sure he got the question part yet
22:01:31kolegai dont now the name of the "tool" but now i cant find the tool on the rockbox page
22:01:59swimmers/tool/utility/ and you found what you want ;-)
22:02:26gevaertsIt should be linked from the manual
22:02:34*gevaerts checks. Indeed it is
22:02:44*bluebrother is rather sure that mentioned tool wasn't anything official
22:03:54kolegahey thank you i've found it!
22:03:57kolega ;-)
22:04:16bluebrotherwe know about its location ...

22:51:02amiconnWell, the specs don't mention it explicitly. They just say ENCODING <integer>

23:00:20pixelmalinuxstb: I just noticed a small problem with %xd while updating my old WPSs - I had one %xdg immediately followed by a word. Now the parser took the first letter of the word as definition of a bitmap strip part (though that image wasn't declared as a bitmap strip one, of course). Guess this is usually no problem though...

23:12:38Lloreanlinuxstb: Add a line to the CustomWPS page telling people not to do it?
23:13:06rasheramiconn: would it make sense for convbdf to ignore characters for ISO10646-1 (unicode) fonts which fall in unused areas?
23:14:07amiconnYou mean the latest unifont has the same glyph defined verbatim for those?
23:14:13rasherIt seems so, yes
23:14:20pixelmalinuxstb: as I said, I don't think that'll happen too often and there are ways around it by the code writer (and I can't remember anyone complaining about that yet so far). It's probably not worth it to take care of all possibilities.
23:14:29pixelmait was just a bit surprising
23:14:30rasherMaybe it would be nicer to write a tool that strips these from bdf files
23:14:44rasherI wonder what possessed them to do this though
23:15:13 Quit bertrik ("Leaving")
23:15:17amiconnAnd btw, I wonder why they've set the defaultchar to 32 (space)
23:15:38rasherThat seems like a weird decision as well
23:15:49amiconnSeveral fonts are doing this though
23:16:24amiconnThe best choice would be U+FFFD iiuc, but due to our current .fnt format this wouldn't be wise for most fonts
23:16:53*amiconn chose <nul> in rockfont because of this

23:21:32rasheramiconn: That seems too specific. Better to check if the character is in a defined space

23:22:30amiconnYes. Check e.g.
23:22:32gevaertsCouldn't you check against the existence of a name for the character?
