00:01:16pixelmaBagder: are the manuals already built?
00:01:28Bagderif you want to fix something, I can restart the build
00:03:26pixelmaI just realised that "Change speed/angle (angle only while paused)" can be misunderstood - I wanted to say that you can only adjust the angle while it is paused but one can read it as "angle is only adjustable while paused"... anyone got a better idea (stay short)?

00:04:21bluebrotherwell, the download page could already have a big fat link to the rbutil wiki page −− and we can add a hint that updated binaries for 3.0 will follow shortly
00:04:49amiconnBagder: How could I check for a define (in EXTRA_DEFINES) in a Makefile?
00:04:57bluebrotherrbutil needs some small path adjustments at least. But I'd like to make it query too so we get a chance displaying a better error message

00:05:53scorchebluebrother: that would be nice, yes...just let me know what to do with t.r.o
00:05:54amiconnHmm, but there can be several other options in EXTRA_DEFINES
00:06:05pixelmanative English speakers?
00:06:13Bagderyes but make can check for a substring within a string
00:06:20amiconnI need to check for a bootloader build in firmware/Makefile, for limiting the font to pure ascii
00:06:21dan_apixelma: "(only angle while paused)" would take away the ambiguity - but I parsed it correctly
00:06:47bluebrotherscorche: can you put on t.r.o and make it accessible without password or whatever?
00:07:01dan_apixelma: or "(speed can't be changed while paused)"
00:07:15*gevaerts votes for that one
00:07:26pixelmathe latter is more clear
00:07:31bluebrotheras it only constructs an error message (anyone with better wording feel free to speak up ;-) there shouldn't be any issues with that
00:07:41bluebrotherof course remove the .txt extension ;-)
00:08:04bluebrotherrbutil will display the description= part

00:09:43bluebrotherBagder: rbutil currently retrieves the bleeding edge information from Do you think that ini file could also hold the information for daily builds and latest release?
00:09:58 Join krazykit [0] (
00:10:28bluebrotherwould make it a bit easier, and also not require a new release once a new Rockbox release has been made
00:10:53Bagderwell, latest release should be easy to add more or less manually
00:11:35bluebrothermy idea was to have only one file to retrieve. The data gets asked for anyway, and it's only a couple of bytes.
00:12:21 Join dabujo [0] (
00:12:22Bagderyes, but it means that my scripts need to fetch info from several places to be able to provide it
00:12:45BagderI've kept them independent since we can then easily run them on different machines etc
00:12:50bluebrothertrue. But starting multiple requests from rbutil make it slower starting up ;-)
00:13:01pixelmaBagder: sent
00:13:18Bagdermanual build restarted
00:14:48bluebrotherhmm. Well, first step would be adding the latest release info. But that would also need to hold the information for which targets the release has been made

00:33:08XavierGrWell congrats to all of you.
00:33:18XavierGrbut wow, 3 years passed already
00:33:19star_jasminehi everyone. tis I, the cygwin illiterate. How does one do a defrag or reset of cygwin? I am having trouble creating sapi4 voices, and my sapi 5 voices are not allowing me to choose the voice which I set in speech preferences under windows. I have already uninstalled cygwin, and reinstalled it with the same result.
00:33:22pixelmaand still the 23rd :)
00:33:27gevaertsPretty important I think. "Three years and one day after 2.5" sounds great, while "Three years and two days" just sounds silly
00:33:46Bagderoh indeed
00:33:52star_jasminealso, cygwin is very slow on my computer for some reason. much slower than it was
00:34:21XavierGris there a plan to release new bootloaders for iriver coldfire?

00:35:50XavierGrargh someone inserted a new lang item before the release (at least I saw it now), pitty.

01:23:08***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
01:23:17LloreanOnes generate with the scripts don't, and rbutil ones don't if music is playing
01:23:21LloreanThis has been going on for a considerable time.
01:23:38amiconnThen I'd think rbutil doesn't package the pause clip properly
01:23:43star_jasmineexcuse my ignorance, but can I download rockbox 3.0 with cygwin?
01:24:10Lloreanstar_jasmine: Cygwin doesn't really have anything to do with downloading Rockbox. What do you mean?
01:24:31Lloreanamiconn: I wouldn't know, but it's something that was baffling a few other people who looked into it, I don't remember any mention of the pause clip though
01:24:34amiconnThe pause clip is important on the MAS, and it also seems to be important on swcodec, but actually it shouldn't if pcm would be working properly
01:25:17amiconnThe PCM implementations seem to be a llitle buggy, in that they eat the last fraction of a second if there's no more data

01:25:53amiconnI stumbled upon this when playing gevaerts's flac file of the rockbox logo converted to zx spectrum gfx
01:25:54Lloreanamiconn: Different strength lengths would lose differing amounts as if it were rounding to the nearest N amount of data?
01:25:58Lloreanstring lengths
01:26:27amiconnMaybe, maybe not
01:26:47LloreanThat seems to be how it's happening. The cutting off happens consistently for any one voice file, but not all strings seem to be cut off.
01:27:44star_jasmineI can download the source with cygwin right? I know I can get it from, but to make voices and so on...
01:27:49amiconnThe spectrum gave me a "tape loading error" even though the image loaded properly. The last byte transferred is a crc, so that got cut off and caused the error message
01:27:58amiconnThe pause clip is another hint

01:30:18Lloreanstar_jasmine: cygwin is a linux-like environment for windows. You can download the source using SVN, or via the archive, as always.
01:30:52polluxxsorry, my intention was not to be impatient

07:51:50scolesHey, I've been trying to get rockbox on my old ipod color lately, i just got a cf card to replace the hard drive and the adapter for it to fit, and i can write to it on the pc and restore through itunes but when i go to plug it into the wall outlet i get apple logo, then the folder icon then it shuts off no matter what i do so i cant get rockbox on it till i restore and i can't get the ipod out of restore mode
07:52:50scolesi've tried 3 different cf cards and none work, the ipod wont see it unless i go into diagnostics mode and run the disk read/write test twice then i can access the info on the card but i can't make sense out of why it does that

08:41:03scoleshmmm that's supposed to be written during a restore right? i'm just wondering why the ipod doesn't detect the card right when i turn it on but it will see it after some fiddeling in diagnostics, theres a led on the cf adapter so i can tell if it tries to acess the card

08:45:52scolesi can write to it in windows fine, i can restore it in itunes fine but as soon as i unplug that cable to put it in the wall adapter it will show the apple logo then the folder icon, i can go into disk mode and diagnostics mode and it passes all in there save the funky hard drive thing
08:47:09GodEaterwhy do you immediately go from "restoring in windows" to "plugging in the wall adaptor" ?
08:48:15scolesi go for the wall adapter after it tells me to in itunes its a ipod color so i have to plug in the wall to finish the restore
08:48:48GodEaterthat's curious - I would only expect that to be required if it's attempting to reflash it too
08:50:25scoleshmmm well it seems to be in restore mode and it refuses to read from the card after i take it off the computer

09:53:31qoqoongreat. so: i've been running a 32Gb transcend CF card in my H320 for a few months now. i'm using your patched bootloader. it works okay, but i keep getting those I03 errors
09:54:08qoqoonyou replied in my thread that those errors are due to a bug in the bootloader svn version you then used
09:54:21qoqoonso i tried yesterday and updated to the most recent i found
09:54:28qoqoonand i got the ATA -80 error

09:54:58peturthat would be v5

09:55:11qoqoonyeah, it said v5 when i booted it up
09:55:30peturthat is the latest release, and way too old for CF
09:55:34qoqooni just got the patcher exe
09:55:43qoqoonso i have to compile the source?
09:55:47qoqoonor are there any binaries?
09:56:11qoqooni mean... it would be really really great if there was a bootloader binary somewhere
09:56:20qoqoonalready patched and all
09:56:28qoqoonfor the 320
09:56:29peturafaik the issue isn't fixed yet so building from SVN will only give you the risk of flashing a bad bootloader
09:56:42qoqoonoh, okay, that's also good info :)
09:57:06qoqoonso just help me understand - the I03 Addr Error issue isn't fixed yet
09:57:07peturmy CF bootloader in the wiki is what we have for CF for now
09:57:10JdGordonanyone know how to open the .pro files for the wps editor?
09:57:17qoqoonand the ATA -80 was due to unpached bootloader?
09:57:23*JdGordon thought it was a kdevelop project, apparently not
09:57:48qoqoonif i remember correctly, you have a 320 as well
09:58:07qoqoonare you also getting those I03 errors from time to time?
09:58:25peturqoqoon : I get those Addr errors also on my h380 (with a disk), I hope LinusN has some time in the future to come up with a solution
09:58:34peturmy h320 is an h308 atm ;)
09:58:50qoqoonhehe CF?
09:59:12qoqoonbut only iriver players are affected by those addr errors?
09:59:22peturand my h120 is dead because I made a stupid mistake when making a bootloader

10:00:01qoqoonit's probably best i keep away from compiling my own bootloaders, huh?

12:00:54Nico_PB4gder: are there manual builds for 3.0?
12:02:33B4gderyes, just not easily available as links yet
12:06:38markunI just converted resized the rockbox logo making use of the LCD subpixels for my gigabeat and it looks a lot better
12:07:22markunshould we use it in rockbox?
12:07:51JdGordonfor sure if it looks better
12:08:07*B4gder agrees
12:08:12markunone problem is that screens might have the same resolution, but different layout
12:08:22markunfor example, the gigabeat screen turns out to be BGR
12:08:50markunwhen I first make a picture using GBR subpixels it looked worse than the original
12:09:05JdGordonblaa.320x240x32-bgr.bmp and blaa.320x240x32-gbr.bmp?
12:10:17markunone other problem is that for example meizu M6SL can have 3 different screens which might have different subpixel layouts
12:11:00markunbut perhaps if can then just use the non-subpixel images until we find out that they all have the same layout
12:11:58linuxstbmarkun: In which case, you could just use CONFIG_LCD in the bitmaps/native/SOURCES file - with a comment saying why...

12:27:34markunNico_P: ok, then I'll give you another picture
12:27:49pixelmaJdGordon: wanted to ask you - why did you invent a new "albumart" feature for the language files? Is it "just" because some of the new port targets which are already in the build table seem to not have album art even though they could?
12:28:28linuxstbmarkun: That's better ;)
12:29:12JdGordonpixelma: its because the albumart code is surrounded in #ifdef HAVE_ALBUMART so what i've done is more consistant than using lcd_bitmap
12:29:38*Nico_P agrees with JdGordon
12:29:48pixelmaI would have suggested lcd_non-mono
12:30:03JdGordonsome mono targets have AA apparently
12:30:55JdGordonthere should have been 0 delta for non AA targets..
12:31:14scotty_007pixelma: iPodMini has AA (but looks ugly)
12:31:29GodEateriPodMini isn't mono - it's greyscale
12:31:29pixelmascotty_007: that's not monochrome
12:31:47markunNico_P: can you tell me which looks better on your ipod?
12:31:51JdGordonah, ba yeah forgot we deal with grey and mono differently
12:32:36pixelmaJdGordon: there was no delta and it was not my concern - just want the features list to not be bloated unnecessarily
12:32:54Nico_Pmarkun: the bottom one looks sharper but i has a few colour artifacts
12:33:46markunNico_P: hm, that last part isn't good. What kind of artifacts exactly?
12:34:24Nico_Pthe grey text at the bottom right has red parts
12:34:26JdGordonpixelma: sorry, no i was putting grey and mono in the same group in my head which is why I thought there was delta on targets which would hav been excluded by lcd-non_mono (in my head)
12:34:36GodEaterNico_P: and green too
12:34:53JdGordonpixelma: either way... features.txt isnt huge and should stay consistant with the code
12:34:58markunthen I wonder if it's really RGB layout..
12:34:59Nico_PGodEater: yes
12:35:15GodEatermarkun: personally, I prefer the way the top one looks
12:35:47markunGodEater: can you also try the subpixel test?
12:35:52Nico_Pthe shadow-type things in the b and o of box also have artifacts in the middle of the curve
12:36:26Nico_Pmarkun: what kind of computer screen fo you have?
12:36:39GodEatermarkun: doing that now
12:36:45markunNico_P: CRT, but does that matter?
12:36:55Nico_Pmy laptop's LCD behaves the same as the ipod
12:37:12markunah yes, then you can see it as well of course
12:38:02Nico_Pmarkun: what are you using to convert the pics?
12:38:04GodEaterI agree with Nico - the RGB part of the subpixel test looks cleanest
12:38:55markunNico_P: some gimp script
12:39:01GodEaterbut I prefer the top picture in the logo file
12:39:07GodEaterit looks much better than the bottom one
12:39:19GodEaterit's anti-aliased a lot nicer

14:47:31amiconnmarkun: Subpixel rendering is a bad idea if you ask me
14:48:30zaytsevHello guys
14:49:44zaytsevMy sister's just bought a latest Nano, but it can't play FLAC. So the question is whether some efforts on porting are undergoing and if yes is there something we can help with?
14:50:24BigBambi_No real efforts no
14:50:36BigBambi_There is a thread in the New Ports forum you can read
14:51:05BigBambi_The problem is that a) the new ones are encrypted and b) even if that were broken, then the hardware is new and undocumented
14:51:29zaytsevAha, I browsed the faq/wiki and just found out it is not supported with no real status updates
14:51:39 Quit culture (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
14:51:52zaytsevOK, I try to find it and read this as well.
14:52:32amiconnThe problem is that not just different targets with the same resolution may have differnent subpixel layouts; there are also targets where different hardware revisions exist which may have different subpixel layout. How would you handle that?
14:53:17zaytsevI wonder what's the problem with breaking the firmware. Is it just a lack of people / interest problem? I am keeping an eye on this iPhone / iPod Touch buzz and they are really doing some crazy things breaking the certificates etc.
14:53:54LambdaCalculus37Encryption and undocumented hardware are the problem.
14:54:11 Join Nibbler [0] (
14:54:38GodEaterzaytsev: the "iphone dev-team" are also extremely close lipped about how they're acheiving those breaks, so it helps no-one else.
14:55:28zaytsevGodEater, you mean they are just disguised Apple guys :-) ?
14:55:56GodEaterit's not a possibility I'd discount entirely...
14:57:22zaytsevI had an impression that they have a public wiki and they put their code in public domain, and then they have an IRC channel. Maybe I am wrong, I am not a dev, I just read news about their so to say outstanding achievements breaking Infineon chips from time to time.

15:16:28zaytsevThat is strange. Still reading the threads...
15:18:42GodEatermy personal opinion is that they're kind of immature about it all. "It's our code, you can't have it"

15:44:59BigBambi_at the moment anyway, for some players (that includes Sansas)
15:45:08GodEateryou probably want en_US.UTF-8
15:45:19delthaven't fiddled around with textmode settings for like, years
15:45:35GodEaterdelt: about time you did then ;)
15:45:41delteven though i use textmode consoles all the time
15:46:04GodEaterzaytsev: there is an experimental USB stack for UMS in Rockbox which you can enable if you build your own
15:46:19GodEaterotherwise, correct, you'd have to boot the sansa into it's original OF to transfer music.
15:46:21deltmost stuff just works fine, so i never got around to fixing these slight little quirks
15:46:39GodEaterI moved everything over to UTF-8 about 6 years ago
15:46:44GodEaterwas painful at the time - but so worth it
15:46:48zaytsevOK, the other problem is how do I find it out whether it is a v1 or v2? I mean I can buy it from the web shop and ask them to ship it so someone in Europe but I can't try the player before I buy to get to the settings
15:46:54BigBambi_zaytsev: But due to a bug in the SD driver (I hope gevaerts is watching), there is a chance you will corrupt the filesystem using it
15:47:08GodEaterzaytsev: the *only* way to tell is to get someone to turn it on, and check the firmware version it reports
15:47:13BigBambi_zaytsev: The only way is to look at the OF version
15:47:15GodEaterthere is no other 100% reliable method
15:47:39GodEaterwhich is why we like froobi - they check for you
15:48:02GodEatermost other web vendors wouldn't bother, even if they knew how, which most wouldn't.
15:48:55zaytsevPardon my ignorance but is Froobi a webshop for players which is worth it? I mean I am quite used to Amazon but I am cautious about the shops I do not know - we trust them
15:50:01deltdo they ship to Canada?
15:50:16 Part LinusN
15:50:27GodEaterno idea
15:50:28JdGordonpixelma: ok, is the info screen actually in the manual?
15:50:31GodEatergo have a look!
15:50:37deltwhere are they located?
15:51:11GodEaterUSA I think
15:51:16JdGordonGodEater: if it loaded i wouldnt be asking :p
15:51:19GodEaterthey quote in USD
15:51:43GodEaterJdGordon: the "go have a look" wasn't directed at you!
15:51:45zaytsevI have found ONE sansa in Russia :) Off to check this froobi out.
15:52:21JdGordonGodEater: hehe, sorry :p
15:52:24GodEaterzaytsev: make sure you check to see if it says "Rockbox ready" against it
15:52:31GodEaterotherwise it's not the right version of the player
15:52:51deltretailers actually tell that?
15:53:03deltoh yeah i see... cool :D
15:53:23GodEaterdelt: no, most retailers don't - froobi is an exception, hence why we like them
15:55:05zaytsevI wonder which one is better, c200 or e200.
15:56:00zaytsevOK, thanks everyone for the help! I will try to find someone in the States to bring the player to me... Look like it's the only option to get a nano-sized FLAC player.
15:56:28delti like my ipod nano
15:56:48deltonly thing is battery life.... i wouldn't mind it being a bit thicker but with a bigger battery

19:12:34LloreanIt's one of those "done in a bad way, but it works" soluetions.
19:12:44LloreanDon't ask me for details, just going on what others have said about it.
19:12:44BigBambi__Llorean: I can readily believe it
19:13:03LloreanSo, committing it would be neat, but at the same time it'd instantly mean we eventually need someone to dig it out and replace it.
19:13:14BigBambi__yeah, not ideal
19:13:22moosmarkun: what's about your font reworks? ;P
19:13:24LloreanSo it's kinda "do we do what's good for the users, or what's good for the developers"
19:13:52BigBambi__I'd go for the latter if it isn't done right
19:13:55LloreanHistorically we've sided with devs, but what we need in this case is someone familiar enough with the associated workings to say how much (if any) extra work we're creating for later by including it.
19:14:05bertrikdo what's good for the developers, in the long run it'll be better for the users too
19:14:33LloreanI mean, if "dig it out and replace it" is the same difficulty as "write the new one from scratch" anyway, we may as well get it in if it's not buggy, and finalize the WPS syntax and let people start writting multifont WPSes for official builds

19:33:50domonokyzlib does not return a nice error for this case..
19:34:24Dieterbeokay, but rbutil can still check the amount of diskspace on the filesystem
19:34:42Dieterbeif it's less then a certain configured amount, give error to user :)
19:35:06domonokyif tell us how to do this on win/lin/mac :-)
19:35:43n1sdo we have a policy on logf/DEBUGF output in the sim, should everything be off by standard or can output that's potentially useful to users be on by default?

19:36:46domonokythat doesnt help of course, we need a crossplatform C/C++ way to check the disk space

19:38:52domonoky:-) in this case "crossplatform" probaly means a function with #ifdefs.. (using statfs on linux, GetDiskFreeSpaceEx() on windows, and unknown on Mac)

19:40:43bertrikmaybe just create a large file to check if there's enough free space :) ?

19:54:59Dieterbewhen it's black i can't see shit, but when it was very bright for a few seconds i could see some sort of menu when looking carefully
19:55:02amiconnYou can use rockbox on a 2nd Gen just fine, but you need to work around a few quirks atm
19:55:27amiconnFirst, disable idle poweroff so that rockbox doesn't try to reboot by itself
19:56:16Dieterbegreat. i reset it and when it's very bright it first shows 'rockbox' big, and then i can see the top item in the menu. 'files' was it. yeay :)
19:56:24amiconnThen, if you actually want to "shut down", hold Play until rockbox triggers the reboot, then immediately flick the hold switch, so that the bootloader boots into the OF which will then suspend after a few minutes
19:56:49amiconnTo go back to rockbox, disable the hold switch and then reset the ipod
19:57:12amiconnYou can charge the battery in rockbox, even though rockbox doesn't indicate that it charges

21:19:00bluebrotherthough I like the idea of having some settings presets. But I talked about that before too −− have rbutil write some settings based on the users favourite usage pattern.
21:19:58bluebrotherwell, this "to become less eliteist" is kinda funny. Who says we are elite, and who says we want to be come less "eliteist"?

21:25:12BigBambiA better UI would of course be great, but not at the expense of customisability
21:25:24bluebrotherunlocking the hardware *is* one of the main reasons for Rockbox, isn't it?

21:25:43BigBambiAnd I mean better as in better is always possible, not that it is bad at the moment
21:25:44gevaertsYes. A lot of us are in this to have fun and to have players do what we want
21:25:46LloreanSome people just wanted the limited UI they originally had, with a couple tweaks, and more codecs/games/etc.
21:25:47BigBambibluebrother: Exactly
21:25:55bluebrotherand what's a "better" gui? Who tells what better means? I really like the current UI.
21:26:08LloreanBut everyone who's ever proposed RockboxLite has followed up with "But someone else should make it for me"
21:26:09bluebrother_if_ you got used to it all those OF interfaces seem awkward.
21:26:10BigBambiMe too, I only meant better as in everything can always be better
21:26:56BigBambiThe menu structure can be a little confusing at times - I've used Rockbox for over 3 years now and I still occasionally have to search for something
21:27:00gevaertsHow hard would it be to change the settings system to hide settings on demand?
21:27:30bluebrotherwell, reorganizing the menu has been discussed before. It's just nobody did anything about it (I wanted to give it a try, but there's always this time thingy ...)
21:27:46BigBambibluebrother: Oh certainly
21:28:25BigBambiBut ultimately I come back to he has missed the point - Rockbox is about control and customisability for me. Making it "user friendly" in the way he suggests reduces the amount of control you have and dumbs down rockbox, removing one of the main advantages to it
21:28:29LambdaCalculus37BigBambi: The menu now is at least much better than the previous menu Rockbox had (prior to the root menu).
21:28:49BigBambiLambdaCalculus37: I don't really agree - for me it is almost identical
21:28:52bluebrotherbesides, I also like KDE better than gnome for ... the customizability
21:29:05bluebrotherLambdaCalculus37: we don't have a root menu ;-)
21:29:25LloreanI think the main menu just adds one more level of stuff I have to go through before I can actually get to the software.
21:29:31bluebrotherand while I have no objections to the current main menu I still don't see a reason.
21:29:34LloreanBut it does help users.
21:29:39BigBambiLambdaCalculus37: I don't mind the main menu and agree overall it is better, but personally I'm not bothered. I start in the file browser and all the main menu gives me is an addition abutton click when I press menu
21:30:03BigBambi*agree overall it is better for users
21:30:09*Nico_P likes the main menu a lot
21:30:41*bluebrother thinks it's strange left in the browser goes to the main menu
21:30:50LambdaCalculus37bluebrother: Sorry... main menu. :P (Where did I get "root menu" from!?)
21:31:19*gevaerts wonders if some users would like a system where the settings menu basically is hidden, and there is a file browser that lets you select nicely named cfg files
21:31:19BigBambiThe old name
21:31:37LambdaCalculus37BigBambi: Ahh, never mind. :P
21:32:08Dieterbeis this patch implemented in 3.0 ? Aka: is the weel supposed to work on both 1G and 2G ipods?
21:32:08bluebrotherit's root_menu.c IIRC. But we agreed that we shouldn't consider it a main menu as it would need to behave slightly different then
21:32:16Lloreangevaerts: You could name .cfg files for every individual setting value and create a completely custom menu system
21:32:25bluebrotherand back that time I was working on the manual, so the term was kinda important to me ;-)
21:32:33LloreanThe biggest flaw is disk spinups for every setting change, and no graphical menus for the few that have 'em. =P
21:32:47bluebrotherLlorean: use a flash based player ;-)
21:33:04bluebrotherflash spinup?
21:33:25bluebrotherthe CF mod for the mini is great. No more spindowns, the "disc" is much faster and needs less power
21:33:48gevaertsLlorean: that gets complicated. I was more thinking about maybe 5 or 10 files.
21:33:51n1sI think a theme preview would be nice on larger displays but how often do you switch themes anyway?
21:34:11Lloreangevaerts: Think of the binsize decrease though, we could remove all settings menus! :-P
21:34:12gevaertsHiding the settings menu could be a setting, written by rbutil if people want that
21:34:27bluebrotherhow do you want to preview themes anyway? Plus, on hdd players this would mean a disc spinup, something we usually don't want
21:34:40gevaertsLlorean: "files/settings/volume/-1, files/settings/volume/-2, ..." ?
21:34:51XavierGris down, or is it only me?
21:35:15n1sXavierGr: seems down or /.'ed or something
21:35:19Lloreangevaerts: Indeed. Generated by the build system!
21:35:34gevaertsLlorean: you're mad!
21:36:07Lloreangevaerts: Actually, Bluebrother did mention that it wouldn't have the same penalties on flash. I wonder how much could be saved by cutting out the menus, for example for very, very lowmem targets.
21:36:14n1sbluebrother: smallish screenshot displayed when moving the selector to a theme, yeah, but you wpuld have to spin the disk to try the theme too
21:36:36gevaertsActually, I'd go for marking each setting as "essential" or "advanced", and allowing to hide advanced settings. They would still be settable through cfg files when hidden
21:36:51bluebrothern1s: this would only work nicely on color targets
21:37:09*gevaerts needs to dive into the settings code some day
21:37:11Nico_PI like the theme preview idea too
21:37:24pixelmaI thought there was once an agreement about not hiding setting? Though things can change...
21:37:33n1sbluebrother: yes, i agree but i don't see why we can have that feature only on those targets where it makes sense
21:37:45bluebrotherisn't the main issue with the theme that you simply don't see the wps until you play something?
21:38:27bluebrotherpixelma: well, if you kinda have a more simplistic view I wouldn't call that hiding −− given that there's an entry to show all settings
21:38:32pixelmathis reminds me... I think "Recent bookmarks" is still disabled by default, right?
21:38:44LloreanI believe so

21:40:58gevaertsActually, we're busy arguing about it :)

21:42:27scorche|shZagor: did Bagder talk to you regarding GSoC monies?
21:42:29Nico_Pamiconn: I meant the menu where there is actually a list of themes

21:42:46n1scompared to most daps on the market today we seriously lack in the bling department, not that i care much personally but it never hurt anyone to look good :)
21:42:49amiconnThis is a file browser, and hence spins up the disk anyway
21:42:57amiconn(at least if you have dircache disabled)
21:43:04Nico_Pamiconn: not with dircache enabled
21:43:27Nico_Pwhat I mean is that it could keep it spun up in order to speedup preview loading
21:43:38scorche|shZagor: do you have access to the mentor's list?
21:43:41LloreanCould we enabled a limited dircache _always_ for "Browse Plugins" "Browse Themes" etc?
21:43:41amiconnBut what's the point of dircache if you spin up the disk even if no file is loaded? It would waste battery
21:43:43Nico_Pand the subsequent theme selection too
21:44:02Zagorscorche|sh: nope. or at least not that I know of.
21:44:04LloreanTo the user they seem like menus, and delays for spinup entering them could confuse people or come back as bug reports.
21:44:07amiconnLlorean: Dircache is a global thing, not a browser thing
21:44:13Nico_Pamiconn: the point of dircache is for the "real" file browser IMHO
21:44:13Lloreanamiconn: As it stands now.
21:44:24LloreanWe could cache those lists separately though.
21:44:34amiconnLlorean: And the way it is implemented I don't see how this could be changed in a sane way

21:45:01Lloreanamiconn: I don't mean necessarily using dircache itself.
21:45:07LloreanWe could have a separate, very simple caching for these lists.
21:45:16LloreanIf dircache is disabled.
21:45:30amiconnThe browser caches the last used dir
21:45:38n1sOr we could do like the beast OF and always spin the disk while in menus! :P
21:45:48gevaertsYou need to be careful with that. People can manipulate those files from the file browser

21:47:08n1syes, instant feedback is nice

21:48:06amiconnEven a status bar update every now and then would help already
21:48:31amiconnRight now, the status bar sometimes becomes completely invisible until after a spinup...
21:48:52Nico_Pone thing I also find annoying is the flaky repaint when I leave the WPS context menu/playlist
21:49:08amiconn(fancy stuff == {icons, colours, headlines...})
21:49:15Nico_Pof course I'm probably partly responsible for it

21:51:26Lloreanlru might work
21:51:48LloreanIt'd at least improve tihngs
21:51:55amiconnThing is, we even have an lru implementation already (for font caching)
21:52:08LloreanOr at least, it shouldn't realistically make things any worse.
21:52:11amiconnThat lru cache can also be preloaded

22:00:11Lloreanbluebrother: If it fails, all you get is the normal behaviour as if dircache weren't enabled.
22:01:10*gevaerts starts to suspect that the settings menu actually only exists in the builds. There's no trace of it in the source
22:02:20amiconnLlorean: Nope. You'll get the initial scan *in the foreground* on every boot, iirc
22:02:54amiconnAnd since reason for breakage is that there are too many files, that initial scan will take quite long
22:03:00Lloreanamiconn: So a temporary fix would be if there wasn't enough room, to disable dircache and give notice.
22:03:28LloreanSo after the first attempt fails, it doesn't automatically re-attempt. This would allow more "safely" enabling it by default for users.

23:04:23bluebrotherwho needs to promote?

23:04:25domonokyyes, we need to rework it sometime.. :-)
23:04:40Nico_PBagder: maybe the 3.0 news item could also have a link to the release notes page?
23:04:46gevaertsAnd I think we want to recommend 3.0 for new people

23:04:51bluebrotherwe do have release notes?
23:05:06Nico_Pthey're not really up to scratch yet
23:05:09bluebrothergevaerts: true. Will look into it. Rbutil coming a bit later won't hurt.
23:05:29bluebrotheralso, the h10 mtp vs ums issue is really a bad thing :/
23:05:34Nico_PI'm not sure about the usefulness of having the credits there btw

23:10:55bluebrotherhmm, those todo marks on the release notes are a bit ... weird
23:11:32bluebrothermaybe we should try to put all stuff in order before announcing the next release (i.e. already have builds done and distributed to the mirrors, etc.)?
23:11:34Hillshumthe ostatic one has a fact or two off..
23:11:41Nico_Pbluebrother: I agree

23:13:27bluebrotherit could even make sense to decide a time frame in advantage. Like decide an internal release date, and have the official release one week later
23:14:56Nico_Pbluebrother: I've edited the release notes slightly
23:15:01Bagderwell, I think I now have most of the scripts done so next time things will be more automatic
23:18:50Nico_Pamiconn: what?

23:20:44gevaertsIt's one of the most consistent reds I've seen though
23:21:35Nico_PBagder: what do you think about adding a link to the release notes in the front page news item and maybe on the download page?

23:22:22BagderNico_P: a good idea, I just wanted most of the "todo" items on the release notes to get fixed but perhaps I should jsut go ahead
23:22:49Nico_PBagder: I've fixed some and removed others. I'm about to deal with the known bugs

23:32:42ilembitovHi, all. Are there any plans to support iPod Shuffle? I mean additional codecs, etc.
23:33:04Bagderilembitov: feel free to go ahead, we won't stop you!
23:33:13BigBambiThe first gen ipod shuffle has a cpu without a freely available compiler doesn't it?
23:33:37Bagdernot to mention how the RE work with no screen is a lot harder

23:34:13BigBambiI'm be shocked if they weren't
23:34:37*Llorean thought there were only two gens of Shuffle, and thought we knew 2G and 3G Nanos were encrypted already
23:35:09BigBambiI misread DerPapst's post with shuffle for nano
23:35:21BigBambiAnd just assumed there was a 3g shuffle I didn't know about
23:35:26DerPapsti meant shuffles ;)

23:36:37DerPapstaccording to the iPL wiki (yes i have a copy) there is an old gcc compiler for the DSP56000

23:38:02DerPapstthere is a 3rd generation shuffle. it looks the (almost?) the same as the 2nd generation. no idea about the internals.

23:38:59gevaertsIs that gcc version 1.37?
23:39:20DerPapstthe wiki just states that it's old ;)
23:39:30*ameyer points out the obvious ancientness
23:39:43DerPapstso 1.37 would be pretty old ;)
23:39:51samdouglasI am trying to get Rockbox running on an Olympus mrobe 100, however with the latest current and all the daily builds I tried, I have no sound output
23:39:56*ameyer guesses circa 1993
23:40:31gevaertsameyer: Jun 8 1992 UNIX Compr. Tar dsp56k-gcc.tar.Z 1975Kb
23:41:18ameyerwow... says 1.37 came out February 11, 1990
23:41:48DerPapstheh. so gcc 1.37 is already mature ^^
23:42:18ameyermy first guess was 1990, but something inside me said "it can't be that old, can it?"
23:43:20gevaertsNot surprisingly, the build system doesn't know about linux

23:44:31Nico_Pthe MD5sum plugin isn't included in the release, right?
23:47:05Nico_POK, I've added a list of known bugs to the release notes page
23:48:52*Bagder copies 26 voice zips to the download server master
23:49:40markunBagder: which TTS did you use?
23:49:46Bagderthe same as always
23:49:47*bluebrother thinks rbutil needs improved support for release isntallations
23:50:53ameyeris that the one that sounds like a drunken scottish guy?
23:51:59Nico_PBagder: what do you think should be done with the MajorChanges page? "fork" it to MajorChangesIn3.0, or divide it in sections?
23:52:14markunBagder: with one of the mbrola voices?
23:52:14BagderI think sections is the way
23:52:27Bagderisn't that for espeak?
23:52:42BagderI use plain debian installed festival
23:52:52BagderI've never even heard them myself! ;-)
23:53:21markunBagder: you can also use mbrola voices with espeak, but I've used them with festival in the past

23:56:37rasherSo it shouldn't break too badly
23:57:04markunBagder: good night
23:57:16toffe82Nico_P: don't you think it would be good to modify the "releases" page on the wiki, it still said no current release

23:57:48Lloreanespeak+mbrola sounds really good (IMHO)
