00:07:38oofushi all. I have a problem that I've been trying to track down so I can make a sensible report but am failing badly ! I have an X5L with a collection of all oggs and a few flacs on it. I can play any of these tracks but every now and then one refuses to play. Once I have had a refusal I cannot skip to any other track and play them either. Nothing will play. If I turn the unit off and back on again, the track that refused to play, plays fine.
00:08:04oofusanybody seen the same ? Any suggestions on how I might figure out what is happening

01:05:09MXIIAIs there a way to completely restore the iPod default Firmware to new before installing RockBox (or after)

01:11:49pixelmahave you seen the IpodManualRestore page in the wiki? But I can not understand why you want to restore it just because of a few songs you don't like, and not simply remove them
01:12:19MXIIAIt is about 300 songs, and they remain on the list when I delete them
01:12:20domonokyto get rid of those songs, you could delete them instead of completly restoring it :-)
01:12:38MXIIAYea, it also has alot of setting that i dont want, I'll look at the wiki

01:27:11Unhelpfulthe file not found error has bitten me every single time i go through restore mode, so i'd *almost* be willing to suggest formatting as a routine part of installation
01:27:32krazykitall set. you should have write access
01:29:43 Part wpyh
01:30:20Unhelpfulthink as an install step is best, or just a section before the "Recovery Mode" one?
01:31:22toffe82_the recovery doesn't format ? it just erase ?
01:31:44 Quit dandin1 (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
01:33:54Unhelpfultoffe82_: the recovery *does* format, but very often, afterward, there is some sort of filesystem issue where a host PC will see the .rockbox directory contents, but the bootloader will not.
01:34:26 Join nplus [0] (n=nplus@141.25.Globcom.Net)
01:34:58Unhelpfulformatting it w/ mkdosfs seems to fix that, but you have to do it correctly, because if certain details of the format are not to the OF's liking, the OF bootloader will reformat the partition, and you might be back where you started.

03:10:35Unhelpfulif you have a question, you should probably ask it. and wait, because whoever can answer might not at their keyboard.
03:10:40Naboofighter93I'm looking for some help with the rockbox instalation
03:11:04advcomp2019Naboofighter93, just ask
03:11:44Naboofighter93With the auto installer it says "could not open ipod" and when I try the manual install, the ipodpatcher reports "no ipod found"
03:12:09Naboofighter93I've read through the manual and followed directions
03:12:14_empNaboofighter93, what os are you using?
03:12:28advcomp2019Naboofighter93, what ipod
03:12:35Naboofighter93nano, 1st gen
03:12:49Naboofighter93the autodetect on the utility finds it fine
03:13:20_empare you running it as admin?
03:14:45LloreanNaboofighter93: Not just running it from an admin account, are you specifically telling it to run the program in admin mode?
03:15:18Naboofighter93Yes, i tried both the utility and the patcher in admin mode
03:15:49LloreanIs the iPod working in the Apple firmware?
03:16:12Naboofighter93I re-installed itunes and reset the ipod to make sure
03:16:14LloreanAnd you're absolutely sure it's a 1st gen Nano?
03:16:18 Part swears
03:17:09LloreanWhat color is it?
03:17:53Naboofighter93Silver, w/ a screen. It doesn't play video. Its 4bg capacity, the serial number is 6u649sxmv8t
03:18:04LloreanSilver is not 1st Generation
03:18:09Llorean1st Generation only came in Black and White
03:18:24LloreanThe 2nd Generation Nano does not play video either, and it came in silver and a variety of colors.
03:18:35LloreanOnly the third generation of Nano plays video.
03:18:50Naboofighter93ok, let me try selecting second gen
03:19:07LloreanThere is no option for 2nd gene nano
03:19:10LloreanRockbox doesn't run on it.
03:19:34Naboofighter93well damn
03:19:54_empLlorean, is the firmware on the 2G/3G ipod nano's packed like typical PE packers?
03:20:37Naboofighter93do you know of any other firmware i could put on it?
03:20:45LloreanNaboofighter93: nobody has cracked the encryption yet.
03:20:58Llorean_emp: I know absolutely nothing about it beyond that it's encrypted.

11:41:59krz_hello all
11:43:02krz_gevaerts: hi :)
11:43:24krz_new patch of wpseditor is ready
11:47:02mcuelenaerekrz_: rbutil/wpseditor/libwps/src/include/lang.h & firmware/include/time.h seem to include TABs
11:47:49gevaertsmcuelenaere: those in firmware/include/time.h are in svn
11:48:00mcuelenaereyes true, but those should be resolved too :)
11:48:56gevaertsmcuelenaere: probably, but _not_ in an unrelated patch
11:49:13mcuelenaereok, then I'll do these later
11:49:48krz_lang.h fixed. i'll create a new patch with a bit more changes
11:50:24 Join Nibbler [0] (
11:50:57mcuelenaereoh yes and I saw just one # define; it's not that I'm against it but I read others complained..
11:51:07mcuelenaerestill just one*
11:51:27krz_what define?
11:51:52linuxstbSo are people happy for wpseditor to be under rbutil, even though it's not part of rbutil?
11:52:18mcuelenaeresrry, I was wrong: it's an #include: +# include "debug.h" in apps/gui/wps_parser.c
11:52:43B4gderlinuxstb: I can't say I see the logic in that, no...
11:52:44mcuelenaerelinuxstb: IMO, it should be under utils/
11:52:53mcuelenaereI always had it there when testing it
11:52:58B4gderyes utils/ seems fine
11:53:05linuxstbkrz_: Why do you need to make that change to font.c ? creat() doesn't work for you?
11:53:29B4gderlinuxstb: it lacks an argument for host
11:53:29krz_linuxstb: as far as i remember early talk with mentor - wpseditor could be integrated into rbutil
11:53:57linuxstbkrz_: Yes, _could be_ - so if it ever is, then the source could be moved. (we have "svn mv")
11:54:19B4gderand it could then be used as a lib or whaever, to allow a stand-alone wpseditor anyway
11:54:26*linuxstb isn't sure he likes the idea of a monolithic "do everything" rbutil
11:54:30krz_linuxstb: so, where could it be?
11:54:50krz_any proposes?
11:54:55linuxstbI would have said just put it at the same level as rbutil. Others have suggested inside utils/
11:55:45krz_may be a voting will help?
11:56:29krz_B4gder,gevaerts, mcuelenaere: what do you think?
11:56:29pixelmalet the RSB decide? ;)
11:56:46B4gderlet the committer decide!
11:56:46*gevaerts thinks that rbutil should be in util
11:56:55*B4gder agrees with gevaerts
11:56:57mcuelenaereabout loading other targets'es WPS'es in WPS editor (in logs): the way I suggested it to krz was to compile one "proxy" lib for every target and to get WPS editor to load them dynamically
11:57:36linuxstbpixelma: That would mean we would actually need to meet...
11:57:50krz_mcuelenaere: we discussed this way yesterday
11:58:03mcuelenaerekrz_: ah ok, I didn't know there was a conclusion
11:58:08mcuelenaereI saw the discussion though
11:58:17B4gderand utils should then be seen as "utils that are for host and not strictly used when building rockbox"
11:58:33B4gderas tools contain the host tools for building

12:51:11 Part B4gder
12:54:46pixelmaI noticed two things more or less related to A-B repeat/repeat mode handling in the WPS: 1) it once was passible to use the %mm (repeat mode tag) unconditionally in the WPS which should return numbers from 0 to 4. This doesn't work currently and even worse, it made my sim crash. From a quick look at the code I think this isn't even prepared in the WPS parser
12:57:06 Join Horscht [0] (n=Horscht@xbmc/user/horscht)
12:57:18pixelma2) There is a AB_REPEAT_ENABLE define in the target config files (which can be set to 1 or 2, depending on whether there are enough buttons or not) but now it is possible to have AB repeat on all targets, it just differs in the controls - couldn't this define be made simpler?

16:42:07XavierGrdomonoky: so it is intended that way in order to maybe change the context of one string if needed?
16:42:29domonokyjup, that how it is done in all Qt programms...
16:42:40XavierGrdomonoky: no that's not a problem I just asked in case it was not intended
16:42:45Ubuntuxershowstopr and I would like to present you our projekt, named Rockbox Center
16:42:49Bagderkugel: not at all
16:43:02Bagderkugel: we'd do it exactly like we do with iram
16:43:23showstoprwe'd like to ask if there's someone here who maintains the rbutil
16:43:24domonokyUbuntuxer: i just wonder why you dont contribute to rbutil, and invent the wheel again.. :-)
16:43:40*domonoky is one of the main rbutil devs.. :-)
16:43:43*Bagder runs away
16:43:59*LambdaCalculus37 jumps behind the sofa
16:44:38kugeldomonoky: support of custom builds mainly
16:45:05UbuntuxerWe would like to ask, wheter we could use some pieces of your code
16:45:20Ubuntuxerthe detection of the players
16:45:40kugelwell, I don't like the idea of hardcoded multithreading. But if you say dynamically choosing the core it's too complex and not needed for now, I won't argue. I'm not an expert in multithreading
16:45:54kugelUbuntuxer: It's GPL, sure you can

16:46:17LambdaCalculus37Can I ask exactly Rockbox Center is supposed to be?
16:46:26Ubuntuxerwe want ask despite of that
16:46:42domonokyUbuntuxer: jup its GPL, so you are free to copy anthing you want from rbutil...
16:47:12showstoprdomonoky: yes, but we thought it would be better if we ask
16:47:26domonokythis implies, that Rockbox center is also under GPL of course..
16:47:43showstoprdomonoky: thats correct
16:47:47Ubuntuxerbesides we would like introduce our project and want to know what do you think of it;-)
16:48:32showstoprwell, it's wriiten in python and later on it should use wxpython for gui
16:48:33kugelI hope you've prepared a colorful and fancy presentation
16:48:57Ubuntuxerhere is our project page
16:49:11showstoprit's just in the beginning
16:49:22LambdaCalculus37That's RBUtil all over again.
16:49:45domonokyhihi wxphython, an earlier version of rbutil was written in wx .-)
16:50:00UbuntuxerWe know the official tool Rockbox Utility, but we would like to program a new program, which is written in Python, because we are not so familiar with C. The decided advantage of Python is that we can use OOP, so we can realisize new functions easier and faster than Rockbox Utility. Rockbox Center doesn't just install Rockbox and the Rockbox Extras, it supports a data transfer to your player and convert your files into the rig
16:50:36UbuntuxerI write this in launchpad
16:50:39GodEaterRBUtil is C++
16:50:47GodEaterso it's OOP also

16:52:03domonokyi just dont understand why you dont want to extend rbutil for this new features, and instead want to reinvent the wheel...
16:52:09LambdaCalculus37And RBUtil utilizes Qt, and is cross-platform.
16:52:36domonokybut you are free todo what you want... Rockbox Center just wont be never supported by rockbox..
16:53:35UbuntuxerOk, I can understand your scepticism

16:53:48Dhraakellianand why would you need a special program to transfer files? Amarok will do fancy renaming for you, but a plain old filemanager will suffice
16:53:50*domonoky would suggest learning C++ and helping rbutil would be better.. but you dont have to.. :-)

16:55:05showstoprdomonoky: good argument, but we are just able to program in python ;)
16:55:12domonokywe are also planning to seperate rbutil gui more from the core, so it would be even possible to write another gui if someone likes..
16:55:50domonokyshowstopr: but if you only can programm in phyton how do you want to use rbutils device detection ? that written in c/C++
16:55:55Ubuntuxerthe data-transfer is really a new useful feature

16:57:31domonokyäh use it in phyton...
16:57:37LambdaCalculus37Yes, but how are you going to do that? Are you going to have it call another app, or are you going to build in that functionality into the source?

16:58:05Ubuntuxerwe have a player detection, which uses hal and the usb.ids
16:58:12showstoprLambdaCalculus37: we want to use other apps
16:58:19domonokyhow do you handle conflicting usb ids ?
16:58:22Ubuntuxerbut it's doesn't plattform independent
16:58:34Ubuntuxerso it just works under Linux
16:59:08gevaertsUbuntuxer: will you also be present here and on the forums most of the time to provide support?
17:01:01UbuntuxerWe are just three developers
17:01:27gevaertsSo that means people will come and bother us if they have a problem using your tool?
17:01:40domonokythere were a few different unofficial installer for rockox (rix, and others). We always had problems when users used this apps, because they were easily outdated...
17:01:59Ubuntuxerwe try to make it really stable
17:02:15Ubuntuxerbefore we publish it
17:02:56showstoprgevaerts: there's a thread at
17:03:16Ubuntuxerwe are from germany
17:03:28gevaertsYou said earlier that you don't like rbutil. What's wrong with it?
17:03:39*domonoky mentions that the two main devs of rbutil are also from germany :-)
17:04:00*linuxstb wonders if that's a co-incidence, or something more...
17:04:13*gevaerts is happy that ipodpatcher and sansapatcher still exist :)
17:04:54Ubuntuxerit doesn't look beatiful under Ubuntu Linux
17:05:10gevaertsThen fix ubuntu
17:05:11domonokygevaerts: and they should always exist, rbutil is only for conviniece, it should always be possible to install in a manual way.. :-)
17:05:55gevaertskrz_: there are still a few # define and # include in your patch (instead of #define and #include). Would you mind fixing those?
17:05:55domonokyUbuntuxer: just tune the Qt settings in Ubuntu, or use Kubuntu, the it will blend in perfectly.. :-)
17:06:30krz_gevaerts: hw, wher?
17:06:34*reacocard thinks QT looks fine in Ubuntu
17:07:04reacocardsur eits a little out-of-place, but you're using this util maybe once a month?
17:07:10gevaertskrz_: wpseditor/libwps/src/defs.h has a few defines, and apps/gui/wps_parser.c has the #include
17:07:16domonokythe look of Qt apps depend on system settings, so its not really a problem of rbutil..
17:07:18saratogareinventing rbutil sounds like a pretty bad idea, since it'd need to be continually resynced with the main app, and in periods where its out of sync it could be problematic for users
17:07:23_empany suggetions for next steps? I hope to work on getting this to work tonight.
17:07:32saratogainstallers really should be developed in close cooperation with the app they install to avoid problems
17:08:20Ubuntuxerwe would like to make Rockbox Center more user friendly
17:08:36gevaertsIn what way?
17:08:44domonoky_emp: you have to some how fix the make call for rbspeex in, there is already a different command for osx, so just make a new rule for bsd..
17:08:47reacocardreally the onyl thing I see your tool doing the rbutil doesnt is working with the files, which is better left to your music player's MSC suppoort anyway
17:09:25krz_gevaerts: can we leave # define in defs.h? it makes code more readable
17:09:34Ubuntuxere.g. if you had install a extra RC install the same extra automatically; if you wish so
17:09:55Ubuntuxerit remembers what the user have done
17:10:08gevaertskrz_: I won't insist too hard on those as it's your file anyway. Let's see what others say
17:10:57krz_domonoky: what do you think?
17:11:14*domonoky just lets Ubuntuxer be, and hope we dont get too much problems whith this new tool...
17:11:30linuxstbUbuntuxer: Why not leave the actual installation to rbutil, and instead work on adapting an existing music player application to integrate with Rockbox?
17:11:47reacocardlinuxstb: that's what Im doing :)
17:11:56reacocardstarting with on-computer DB-generation
17:12:04linuxstbreacocard: Cool... Which player(s) ?
17:12:15reacocardbut eventually extending to full support in Exaile with a lib anyone can use
17:12:17domonokykrz_: you can leave that define if you want.. its not really a problem..
17:12:37*GodEater hasn't looked at Exaile
17:12:38reacocardit wont install, just work really well with an existing install of rockbox
17:12:53reacocardthat is, IMO, the best way to go
17:12:54_empdomonoky, gotcha; I'll work on that tonight then.
17:13:23*kugel would like the h10 screen size preview to be fixed before committing
17:14:13gevaertskrz_: proxy.c has letoh16(), htole32(), and plugin_get_buffer(). Are they really needed ? I can't find anything that calls letoh16() and htole32(), and I don't really see why plugin_get_buffer() should be needed
17:14:32domonokykugel: i dont think this wrong,the h10 has a 128x128 display..
17:14:47gevaertskrz_: maybe make e200 the default. Then kugel will be happy
17:15:00kugeldomonoky: yea, but I want to edit wps of other targets
17:15:35domonokykugel: yes, but for this you need multi target support ready, ie seperate prox libs for every target...
17:15:39kugelgevaerts: I don't think I'd be happy. I just wouldn't notice the flaw ;)
17:15:53gevaertskugel: you can build other proxy libs and copy them to the right place
17:16:20krz_gevaerts: probably it is called somewhere in gwps, or else.. i can't reember now but we can get unresolved external
17:17:39krz_kugel: have a patience. other targets will be soon
17:18:11kugelis the wps editor supposed to be build per target?

19:15:31gevaertskrz_: I can't make it crash again apparently.
19:16:32motok. if the mpegs on my ipod were loaded on with itunes, does rockbox not detect them, as they aren't under files.
19:17:34gevaertskrz_: One other thing though : if I start the program and immediately click on 'Update WPS', it creates a file called '.wps' in my working directory. It gets removed after quit, but it's not really good
19:18:12LambdaCalculus37mot: No, Rockbox will not detect them. Rockbox also doesn't play back the movie codecs used by iTunes; it only plays MPEG1/2 video files.
19:18:27bertrikmot, I don't know anything about itunes, but if they are present on the file system, rockbox can show them
19:18:37*LambdaCalculus37 corrects himself a bit
19:18:46bertrikshow the files I mean, not necessarily the movie content
19:19:39LambdaCalculus37bertrik: Actually, I don't think it can. iTunes movies usually have an .mp4 or .m4v extension, which I don't think is seen in Rockbox.
19:19:48*LambdaCalculus37 looks through the manual to make sure about .mp4 files

19:36:56fmlSlasheri, kugel: a question about Tagcache.c: why is curpath_size declared as static long and not via a #define?
19:39:32fml pixelma: the problem you've had today at about 13:00 (crash in WPS) is known and is addressed in FS #8965. The patch is not dedicated to the problem though and fixes it as an "add-on". This applies to some tags that are normally used in a conditional but should be also usable stand alone (but are not).

20:14:58fmlSlasheri: to your discussion with kugel (yesterday): the fact that there are too few l's (small L) in the conversion string should not lead to a crash since that string is interpreted as a ring buffer.
20:15:18fmlSlasheri: it's still better to have the correct number of them of course
20:15:26gevaertslinuxstb: can you have another look at krz's latest patch ? I'm out of comments, but maybe you're inspired :)
20:15:35Slasherifml: the TAG_COUNT was not increased
20:15:41fmlSlasheri: but since all are L, there should be no visible effect
20:15:41Slasherithat leads to problems for sure
20:15:50gevaertsmcuelenaere: do you have more comments about krz's patch?
20:15:53linuxstbgevaerts: Sure...
20:15:57fmlSlasheri: ah, ok
20:16:02mcuelenaeregevaerts: I was just going to take a look ;)
20:16:29gevaertslinuxstb: you need to change the last line of libwps/Makefile to say @$(COPY) ../gui/bin/
20:16:39Slasherifml: but you are right about those l's.. in fact, maybe we could leave just one of them in place
20:16:40gevaertslinuxstb: I didn't think that worth it to upload another patch
20:17:19fmlSlasheri: is it sure that all of them will always stay L?
20:17:35Slasherifml: pretty sure for that one entry
20:17:38Slasherinot for the others
20:18:01mcuelenaereseems like it's still in rbutil/wpseditor..
20:18:20gevaertsit is. I'll move it before committing
20:18:26Slasherifml: originally i wrote that struct endianess conversion stuff but can't remember all the details
20:18:31linuxstbgevaerts: I don't really care about the wpseditor itself - I think it can be committed in any state. It's just the core changes I think are important to get perfect, especially as we're in feature freeze....
20:18:38fmlSlasheri: btw: I liked the proposal of kugel to define TAG_COUNT by placing it as an enum. Then name should be changed IMHO since it's not the total tag count but ... what would fit? (There are more enum names after that)
20:18:58Slasheriyep, that sounds good idea and should work
20:19:31Slasheribut no, no automatic generation of those endianess conversion tables
20:19:47mcuelenaerecompiling libwps still gives warnings, or is this not bad?
20:19:50*linuxstb notices that krz isn't here...
20:19:59fmlSlasheri: agreed (about no automatc generation)
20:20:25mcuelenaereand there are 'unused parameter' warnings in qwpsdrawer_static.cpp (same question)
20:20:47gevaertslinuxstb: I know. I don't see any non-preprocessor-guarded changes in the common code though
20:21:12gevaertslinuxstb: he left 20 minutes ago. He'll come back later
20:21:51fmlSlasheri: tagcache and structec wouldn't suffer if they had much more comments :-)
20:21:56linuxstbgevaerts: There are possibly some places where .h files could just be included in all cases, not just #ifdef WPSEDITOR. Plus the "/*remove warnings*/" comment isn't needed.
20:22:04mcuelenaereI see the 'not-all-windows-are-closed'-bug is still present..
20:22:16linuxstbBut maybe it's safer to keep them within the #ifdef...

22:11:41krzmcuelenaere: btw, on linux wpseditord is built or wpseditor?
22:12:20mcuelenaerekrz: wpseditord
22:12:26mcuelenaerebut that's probably a debug build
22:12:42mcuelenaerenot sure why it's build standardly as debug though
22:13:52jashyok ill leave now, thank you all for the work on rockbox, the greatest open source project i know (love it more than linux, not that huge :D)999999999999999999

22:56:26*gevaerts has one actually, or rather a question
22:56:56krzgevaerts: what is it?
22:57:03gevaertsDo authors of standalone utilities like this one get into CREDITS, or does the utility get its own CREDITS file ?
22:57:14gevaertskrz: basically, where do I put your name :)
22:57:30 Join nuonguy [0] (
22:58:51gevaertskrz: if I understand correctly, your code also needs to be on some google server for them to accept all this. Is that done?

23:00:20krzit is in
23:00:36domonokygevaerts: googles time line says, they can begin submitting to google after sepember 3.
23:01:49domonokykrz should look in the gsoc student docs from google on how todo it..
23:03:50domonokygevaerts: i think you should put him in the main CREDITS file.. but what do others think ?
23:04:29gevaertsdomonoky: I think that's best. "People that have contributed to the project, one way or another" clearly includes this sort of work

23:06:08XavierGrroflmao good one!
23:06:25XavierGrGoldenQuote candidate I say :P
23:06:48gevaertsDo we close FS #9327, or do we keep that one for further patches?
23:07:04BagderI think close it
23:07:20krzgevaerts: i think we can keep
23:07:28Bagderit also kind of opens it up for others to also submit patches for that code
23:07:38krzwhere will i put patches? :)
23:07:53domonokykrz in a new tracker entry.. :-)
23:08:36*gevaerts types :wq
23:08:44domonokyi think closing the task is good, so its clear that code is commited..
23:09:14gevaertsNow let's hope that agrees with our reviews :)
