#rockbox log for 2008-09-21

00:00:40BigBambiOK, import duties :)
00:00:46andi__is it possible to figure out the version without actually having physical access to the player, i.e. any serial number on the box
00:02:47andi__ok thanks

00:06:21Kopfgeldjaegerandi__: the seller i bought from wrote the firmware number in the article description. and both my v2 (which i returned to amazon) and my v1 had a working hardware radio
00:08:23webguest40hey does anyone know how to get pictureflow working in my sansa e260? it says no album art found then i get a plug in error? Do I need song to be in a specific folder or what?
00:08:39bluebrotherdoes album art work at all?
00:08:39BigBambiIs the database initialised?
00:09:09webguest40well how do i get it to be initialized
00:09:12Kopfgeldjaegerwebguest40: the same thing happened when i tried that on my e260. but when i tried it again, it worked. may have to do something with the database, yeah
00:09:25BigBambiwebguest40: The manual contains all the answers
00:09:36*pixelma gets annoyed by more and more small bugs one can find when looking closer just for updating the documentation :/
00:09:44webguest40i cnt display manual
00:09:58webguest40im on my phone
00:09:59BigBambipixelma: Is there anywhere I can help?
00:10:07pixelmaBigBambi: on pictureflow and album art? I doubt it
00:10:15BigBambipixelma: On the manual
00:10:39bluebrotherthere is a html version of the manual available.
00:10:43pixelmamy first sentence referred to the infos you can find in the manual
00:10:45saratogado i have to change PLUGIN_API_VERSION if I add a function to the end of the plugin stuct?
00:10:50 Nick fxb is now known as fxb__ (
00:11:02bluebrotherdirectly linked from the manual download page. So if you can display CGI::IRC you can display the manual.
00:11:15BigBambipixelma: Right, but I was talking about database initialisation
00:11:32BigBambiWhich AFAIK is in the manual :)
00:11:33amiconnsaratoga: yes
00:11:52amiconnThat value needs to be changed whever the plugin api struct changes
00:12:09webguest40where does PICture flow look for Albums???
00:12:12amiconnIf the change is backwards compatible (i.e. adding to the end), change only that
00:12:23BigBambiwebguest40: Does album art work?
00:12:36webguest40hwo shoudl I KNOW??
00:12:40bluebrotherwebguest40: is the database initialized?
00:12:47BigBambiwebguest40: By playing music
00:12:48webguest40i updated
00:12:54bluebrotherwebguest40: use a theme that supports album art and play some track?
00:12:56amiconnIf the change breaks backwards compatibility, you also need to increase PLUGIN_MIN_API_VERSION to the same value as PLUGIN_API_VERSION
00:12:59BigBambiwebguest40: Do you see album art when playing music?

00:13:56webguest40it works on normal firmware
00:14:03pixelmaBigBambi: tucoz recently posted this todo list (did only one thing already - the pegbox screenshots). I'm currently fixing some small mistakes in plugin descriptions and noticed that some are undocumented: e.g. matrix, pictureflow, invadrox, superdom. Not sure what can be done about it until tuesday
00:14:05Kopfgeldjaegerwebguest40: that's in the wiki. cover.bmp in the right folder should work for example
00:14:07webguest40there acutally is a album art :o
00:14:08bluebrotherwe do not care about the original firmware.
00:14:24bluebrotheragain, we don't care about it.
00:14:34bluebrotherthe OF is only for usb mode :)
00:14:34webguest40i know im saying it does work in original like it does hav album art..

00:15:50BigBambipixelma: I'll happily do some tomorrow
00:15:57bluebrotherRockbox is a _replacement_ firmware. As in, it has nothing in common with the original firmware. As in it doesn't care how the original firmware handles things.
00:16:46BigBambiWhich original firmware is also a valid point here - the iriver ones? The iaudio ones? The apple ones? The toshiba ones? etc etc
00:17:07pixelmathe Archos ones? ;)
00:17:27BigBambiyep :)

00:30:43saratogaor rather I guess #if (CONFIG_CODEC == SWCODEC)
00:31:25amiconnThe semaphore functions are what is swcodec only
00:31:56amiconnThey're declared in codecs.h, as grep tells me
00:32:24amiconnevent_ too
00:32:39amiconnthread_thaw is all-targets
00:32:48saratogado you want the other functions on hwcodec if nothing is currently using them?
00:33:28amiconnWell, the general philosophy is that if a function needs to be exported *and* that function is available on all targets, it should be exported for all targets
00:33:55amiconnAs this is a quick fix, you don't need to change the api version again, imo
00:34:12amiconnJust put all but thread_thaw() in an SWCODEC block
00:35:29soapcongrats on the MP3 synthesis on COP, saratoga. I'm giddy with excitement.
00:35:46amiconnThe reason for this philosophy is that if you #ifdef out a function, and another target later needs it, it would break backwards compatibility for that target, and sinec we don't define the api versions per target, we'd need to break it for all targets
00:36:42 Join dany_21a [0] (n=dan@
00:36:53amiconnAnother reason is that it makes it easier for developers. Less #ifdefs-> better readable, and it's less likely to confuse a plugin developer (why does my plugin not build on target Y??)
00:37:03bluebrothersaratoga: nice improvement. Too bad most of my music is ogg ... *hint* ;-)

00:40:40saratogawell that and I have more single threaded optimizations in mind for those codecs anyway
00:40:52bluebrothergood point.

02:29:17thephilosophergevaerts: i am really new
02:29:31gevaertsthephilosopher: you are, but rockbox isn't ;)
02:29:49BigBambiLinux is complete overkill for DAPs
02:30:04gevaertsAlso, how many of our devices are supported by linux? I guess less than 10%
02:30:09thephilosopherBigBambi: i really dont think so....
02:30:10bluebrotheranother question: how should the linux leverage device drivers and stuff if there aren't device drivers for the hardware used?
02:30:35BigBambithephilosopher: The rockbox kernel is much smaller, faster, .... etc and thus much more suited to low power low memory devices
02:30:43amiconnThe linux kernel is far too big for _really_ embedded devices
02:30:59thephilosopheri guess , i am really not a specialist
02:31:07gevaertsthephilosopher: how much RAM does the sansa clip have? Can the linux kernel ever fit? (yes I know, rockbox currently also wouldn't fit...)
02:31:22BigBambiThere is an enormous amount of extra stuff in the linix kernel than just isn't necessary here

02:31:27gevaerts(this is a new DAP...)
02:31:58thephilosopheraof course the kernel would have to be clean up a litle
02:32:04BigBambia little?
02:32:04amiconnThat is, squeeze the kernel, plus the player application, in ~500KB of RAM

02:33:39thephilosopherBigBambi: i saw the kernel structure... and it look really archique, so i ask why
02:33:57gevaertsWhat's wrong with it?
02:34:06*gevaerts guesses archaic
02:34:12BigBambiah yes
02:34:15thephilosophergevaerts: yea my english is bad
02:34:28BigBambithephilosopher: It is small, fast, efficient, and does what is needed
02:34:45BigBambilinux is big, slower, does many more (to us) useless things, ....
02:35:03bluebrothernow make drivers kernel modules. What's the use of this on a dap?
02:35:24*gevaerts doesn't see what's archaic about rockbox
02:35:29*BigBambi neither
02:35:50thephilosopherBigBambi: yea my point is that with the new dap , with that still be true ?
02:35:53BigBambiHaving said that, I know nothing about the internals :)
02:36:12BigBambithephilosopher: Why stick something (relativly) big and bloated on when it isn't necessary?
02:36:33BigBambiWhy not needlessly use up still limited resources?
02:36:40bluebrotherthephilosopher: well, just compare Rockbox and Ipodlinux.
02:36:40 Join imau [0] (
02:36:49gevaertsthephilosopher: so the question is, seven years ago, knowing that in 2008 there would be new DAPs, why didn't they use linux even if it didn't fit the players available then?
02:37:11BigBambiAnd still isn't the best answer now IMO
02:37:31thephilosophergevaerts: yea exactly
02:37:39BigBambithephilosopher: eh?
02:37:43bluebrotherROTFL :)
02:37:50BigBambigevaerts was disagreeing with you
02:38:12gevaertsthephilosopher: well, then the answer is : the rockbox project's official crystal ball was broken and needed repairs
02:38:22thephilosophergevaerts: i guess so
02:39:05thephilosopheri am not an expert but the work on the rockbox kernel seem redondant now
02:39:21bluebrothersome special reason: just using linux instead of writing an own kernel would have cut all the fun :)
02:39:28BigBambiIt is *still* smaller and more efficient than linux
02:39:31gevaertsNo. The work on linux is redundant, as rockbox is the better solution for DAPS
02:39:34 Quit imau ()
02:39:46bluebrotherthephilosopher: this is nonsense. Kernels can be quite different, and the Rockbox kernel is really different from the linux kernel.
02:39:51BigBambiWhy stick something big and slow on just bbecause it is now possible?

02:40:27bluebrotherwhy use an unsuited kernel if you can use a suited kernel as well?
02:40:28thephilosopherbluebrother: what i say is that the :effeciency" you guys are talkng about is not really important anymore
02:40:33BigBambiyes it is
02:40:35thephilosopheror soon wont be
02:40:39BigBambiYes it will
02:40:41gevaertsthephilosopher: if linux is so much better than rockbox for DAPs, why is ipodlinux much less popular than rockbox, and why is there no linux port for the other players? Surely linux has much more interested developers...
02:40:44bluebrotherthephilosopher: is is absolutely important.
02:41:01gevaertsthephilosopher: 5% efficiency loss equals 5% shorter runtime
02:41:10bluebrotherI want my player to run 14h rather than 2h.
02:41:19BigBambiFor a battery powered portable device efficiency is everything
02:41:39thephilosopherBigBambi: that a good point ...
02:41:49thephilosopherbut Mac os on the touch
02:41:55BigBambiNot full Mac OS
02:42:03thephilosopherand win ce on the zune show that it can be done...
02:42:14BigBambiWin CE does not equal windows
02:42:15thephilosopherBigBambi: we are talking about kernels here....
02:42:16amiconnAnd it's not just the efficiency itself, also some other concepts
02:42:28amiconnE.g. memory management
02:42:34bluebrotheryep. Use windows mobile, make the system slow and fat, and decrease battery runtime
02:42:41*BigBambi gives up
02:42:54thephilosopherbluebrother: dont find the zune to be that slow...
02:42:55bluebrotherwhy do you think does Rockbox increase the battery runtime for several players? Using magic?
02:43:18thephilosopherBigBambi: i see your point ... lol
02:43:25bluebrotherthephilosopher: then use a less powerful cpu instead.
02:43:45bluebrotherpoint is, we want to work with less powerful devices than the zune, and therefore the linux kernel isn't suitable.
02:43:48gevaertsthephilosopher: have a look at the sansa clip. It's a new player, on the market today. Now run linux on it
02:43:57bluebrotherif *you* want to work with powerful devices only, feel free so.
02:44:28BigBambiEven then linux/win ce/whatever is an inferior choice for a music/video player IMO
02:45:10thephilosophergevaerts: look at sony new walkman series...
02:45:21thephilosopherwe can find example on every side that prove any point
02:45:28BigBambiNo, you can't
02:45:41thephilosopherBigBambi: i just name 3
02:45:44gevaertsthephilosopher: rockbox can handle large devices just fine
02:45:48BigBambiJust because it *can* run linux (or whatever) doesn't make it better to do so
02:45:53bluebrother"CPUs are fast enough so we can waste CPU / battery / ... power" isn't a point.
02:46:07 Join toffe82 [0] (
02:46:16amiconnthephilosopher: This just proves that linux and wince *can* run on *some* new daps. Not that it's a good choice to do so.
02:46:16gevaertsthephilosopher: we could also use oracle for the tag database. Surely that's a good idea!
02:46:29thephilosopherdoes rockbox have wifi/bleutooth ?
02:46:47bluebrotherit's like this java crap: it was dog slow in the beginning, and only because computers are faster now doesn't make it any better (and in fact it's still slow whenever I use a java program)
02:46:53BigBambiI could leave all the taps in my house on permanently - there is enough water. That doesn't make it a good idea
02:47:18BigBambithephilosopher: not currently, but if someone were to write one it could
02:47:20bluebrotherwhich supported players have wifi / bluetooth?
02:47:36BigBambiergo it is not needed
02:47:41thephilosophermy point is that those module are allready in the linux kernel
02:47:43bluebrotherlet me think ... none. So there's no point. Why have a bluetooth stack if you don't need it?
02:47:45thephilosopherand wouldnt be needed
02:48:08bluebrotheryou most likely would need to write a new device driver for the specific hardware present in the player
02:48:21gevaertsthephilosopher: ok, so my previous question again : how many of the sound and lcd chips in our currently supported players have linux drivers?
02:48:43BigBambimy pc can already play music, so why bother with a dap?
02:49:04thephilosophergevaerts: not many... the point ?
02:49:05bluebrothermy stereo can play music, so why bother with mp3?
02:49:22BigBambithephilosopher: That if you have to write them anyway, what is the advantage of linux?
02:49:26advcomp2019thephilosopher, i think linux on a dap is overkill and lots of maybe wasted space in my opinion
02:49:37gevaertsthephilosopher: that's my question. We must use linux because it has all drivers. But it hasn't
02:49:38BigBambiadvcomp2019: We all do except thephilosopher
02:50:05*BigBambi thinks this is a pointless discussion. He isn't going to get it
02:50:07zeoverkill can be great though
02:50:26thephilosopherBigBambi: yea i dont think i can get it
02:50:28bluebrotherlike in coffee overkill? Nah.
02:50:43thephilosopherlet s the future tell us the truth
02:51:02gevaertsthephilosopher: you keep telling us things, and when we refute them you turn that around and pretend that you proved your point
02:51:11zethe future lies, and the past is a slut
02:51:17BigBambiI'am confident it will show that you are talking nonsense
02:51:27BigBambize: please don't
02:51:37thephilosopherze lol
02:52:04thephilosophergevaerts: what ? you just get what i am saying dint blame me
02:52:09bluebrotherthis is a technical channel, not a philosophical one. Or did I miss something?

18:39:51gevaertsdomonoky: ah, yes. Good idea
18:40:23vitjagevaerts: could it be a problem if usb_drv_send_nonblocking() is actually blocking and calls usb_core_transfer_complete()?
18:40:46gevaertsAnd bootloader is flash, so loading the rockbox bootloader can't fail because I did interesting things with the disk
18:41:46NorrinBug tracker has been added concerning the flashing.

18:42:00gevaertsvitja: that probably won't be very speed efficient, but it shouldn't cause problems.
18:43:01vitjagevaerts: so I should fill in fifo in usb_drv_send...() and then call usb_core_transfer_complete() from interrupt?
18:44:26gevaertsvitja: something like that, yes. Be careful though as the fifo probably handles individual packets, and usb_drv_send() works with entire transfers (so it can ask to send e.g. 16k in one call)
18:44:58gevaertsSo you probably need a layer in between

18:52:01gevaertsvitja: about the usb_drv_recv() thing we talked about yesterday : I think you can set the INHLD bit in the endpoint control register to 1 from usb_drv_recv(), and back to 0 on transfer completion

18:55:06gevaertsvitja: I *think* that if you implement all usb_drv_*() calls as blocking, everything should mostly work. They need to be nonblocking to allow for multiple simultaneous transfers, like when you use both UMS and usb serial, but that's not very important when you're trying to get things started

21:31:50scolesi can reset but i get teh apple logo and the folder icon

21:50:21scolesi'll try it in internet explorer then

21:53:03Phyro-Maneis there hope that rockbox will be available for this players in near future?
21:53:08scolesfunny enough Internet Explorer just worked
21:53:18BigBambiThere are no time estimates given
21:53:25scolesmaybe its cause my firefox is out of date

23:09:16bluebrotherhmm. Can I create a file containing a : on windows? (I know explorer doesn't allow me to do, but can windows cope with that?)
23:09:49amiconn: is explicitly forbidden because it's a path separator
23:10:15bluebrotheron windows?
23:10:59bluebrotherI know it's path separator on linux (but you can still create files containing it)
23:11:18amiconnFor the drive...
23:12:13bluebrotherah, true. Forgot about that.
23:13:03amiconn...and also for protocols, as winodws explorer can access e.g. WebDAV paths

23:53:27gevaertsmmadia: hold power for a long time (could be 30 seconds). That will reset the player

23:57:19gevaertsmmadia: sure, why not?
23:58:04mmadiawebguest49: in my limited experience, the theme files i install usually are extracted to the root directory of the device.
