00:44:02Strife89ercferret18: What's the problem.
00:44:25ercferret18i have tried everything, but my sansa c200 just won't work
00:44:37ercferret18when i turn it on, only the blue ring lights up
00:44:42Strife89ercferret18: I just dropped in; I need details.
00:44:56ercferret18when i turn on my sansa c200
00:45:00ercferret18nothing happens
00:45:05ercferret18except the blue ring lights up
00:45:15ercferret18i tried the e200tool
00:45:23ercferret18and that got the player into recovery mode
00:45:35ercferret18but i tried
00:45:47ercferret18dragging the firmware into the disk and it still didn't work
00:46:02ercferret18someone suggested i use the eraser and that i could get it from this IRC
00:46:06ercferret18ok, i'm done
00:46:11Strife89Then you've looked at the Wiki?
00:47:33Strife89My Internet connection is slow today.........
00:47:43ercferret18yeah, i looked at that and tried everything, it still doesn't work
00:47:49ercferret18thats ok
00:48:39Strife89You may have gotten the wrong firmware version.
00:49:03Strife89Where is that sucker?.........
00:49:34ercferret18i tried dragging the firmware i got from the e200tool site into the 16MB-FORMAT thingie
00:50:08Strife89But you're using a *c*200, correct?
00:50:16ercferret18a c250 actually
00:50:28Strife89Heh, that's my model. :)
00:50:37Strife89Anyway, look here:
00:50:59ercferret18ok, which one should i get?
00:51:01Strife89Pick one of the zips and copy *all* of the files to your Sansa while in recovery mode.
00:51:11ercferret18i'll try
00:51:11Strife89Try them all, one at a time.

00:52:21linuxstbercferret18: Read the IRC logs starting here -
00:52:37ercferret18ok, i will when i'm done trying this
00:52:56Strife89And I recommend that you use the Wiki's way to get into recovery mode. It shouldn't matter, but for safety's sake.....

00:54:02ercferret18i can't do it by using the hold switch and record button, only by using the e200tool
00:54:19Strife89Don't try hitting power, just plug it in.
00:54:35Strife89Keep holding record.
00:54:40ercferret18yeah, when i do that, it goes into "manufacturing mode"
00:54:46ercferret18then i use e200tool
00:55:20Strife89What's your computer's OS?
00:55:33ercferret18i'm on linux (ubuntu) right now
00:55:49Strife89Read that log if this doesn't work.

00:56:12Strife89I, too, am using Ubuntu, by the way. :D
00:56:32ercferret18ok, now i have it in recovery mode (using e200tool) and now im going to try extracting that firmware you just gave me
00:56:52Strife89Be sure to place *all* of the files onto your Sansa.
00:57:34ercferret18yup, i'm just extracting it straight into the 16MB-FORMAT thing
00:57:49Strife89Be sure to unmount it before pulling the plug.
00:58:23Strife89I preferred to extract it elsewhere first.
00:58:32Strife89"Oops" what?
00:58:43ercferret18i didn't unmount before pulling it out
00:59:22Strife89That is *definitely* something that has potential to screw up hardware. PLEASE be careful.
00:59:34ercferret18ok, i'll do that next time
00:59:35Strife89Anyway, reboot your Sansa.
00:59:44ercferret18ok, the first one didn't work
01:00:15Strife89Do you remember the EXACT version of the OF before you had problems?
01:00:25Strife89Specifically, the letter.

01:01:04ercferret18no, I don't. i had installed rockbox on it and i had never ran any firmware updates, this happened when i removed rockbox and its bootloader.

01:02:36***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
01:03:14ercferret18no luck with the second one
01:03:24ercferret18and this time i noticed it said "format failure" on the screen
01:03:42Strife89Never seen that before....
01:05:37ercferret18third didn't work, again with the format failure
01:05:46Strife89Let's try what the log says. Download this: gevaerts/c250erase">
01:06:08ercferret18I downloaded it
01:06:27Strife89This tool is supposed to wipe your Sansa to a fresh state. First......
01:06:44Strife89Put it in your Home directory.
01:07:01ercferret18ok, got it
01:07:04Strife89Now open a terminal.
01:07:11Strife89Type this: gevaerts/c250erase">
01:07:15Strife89No, not that
01:07:22Strife89chmod +x c250erase
01:07:43Strife89Put "sudo" before it if that doesn't work.
01:07:51ercferret18i think it worked
01:08:03Strife89sudo ./c250erase
01:08:16Strife89With your Sansa plugged in, of course.
01:08:28ercferret18should it be in manufacturing mode or recovery mode
01:09:02Strife89Be aware: This will take a long time.
01:09:05ercferret18ok its working
01:09:08Strife89~45 minutes.
01:09:19ercferret18thats fine, anything to get it working again
01:09:23Strife89You should see some numbers counting down on the Sansa.
01:09:31ercferret18yup, i do
01:09:40Strife89Okay, let it sit there.
01:09:53ercferret18i've got plenty of time
01:10:12Strife89After around 45 minutes, it'll say that it's ready, and that pressing a key powers it off.
01:10:38ercferret18ok, and then will it boot into the firmware or will i have to put the firmware on it?
01:11:01Strife89But while it's there, it's in "normal" manufacture mode, so using SansaE200Unbrick's instructions should work.
01:11:34Strife89So, don't turn it off when it gets there.
01:11:50ercferret18so what should i do when it finishes?
01:12:42 Quit n1s ()
01:13:07Strife89Put this on it.
01:13:35ercferret18ok, just that?
01:13:47Strife89I *believe.*
01:13:53ercferret18ok, thanks
01:14:17Strife89Go ahead and read the log; that's where I'm getting the instructions from. :)
01:14:32Strife89"When you're there, it's in "normal" manufacure mode, so the procedure from SansaE200Unbrick should work."
01:14:49Strife89That sentence is iffy to me.
01:15:28ercferret18i will try with just the firmware first
01:16:17Strife89Well, I have dishes to wash. ;)
01:16:23Strife89I'll be back.

02:11:54ercferret18i mean i can't put anything on it unless it's in recovery mode

02:12:07ercferret18sorry about that
02:12:19Strife1989ercferret18: Try doing it in recovery mode, then. It should still work.
02:12:20advcomp2019Riyonuk, it should work
02:12:34RiyonukTheres not even an option on the website
02:12:39ercferret18i'll get it into recovery mode using e200tool
02:12:48RiyonukYet here's a pic of one in action, I don't get it.
02:14:08Strife1989Isn't the iPod Video 5G and the iPod Classic 6G?
02:14:11ercferret18ok so i should just put the pribootLoader.rom onto the 16MB-FORMAT drive and unmount?
02:14:17Strife1989ercferret18: Yes.
02:15:01ercferret18ok now it goes straight into recovery mode on reboot

02:16:15Strife1989ercferret18: Try starting with the last one and going backwards
02:16:51Strife1989Hopefully that will better your odds of nailing it early.
02:17:06ercferret18copy everything into the drive, including the pribootLoader.rom?

03:43:52MarcGuayjunzi: Sounds like a bad idea to me, the e200 has a hidden partition for a reason.
03:49:20junziMarcGuay: hmm, what reason? fdisk -l output looks like a mess
03:54:21advcomp2019junzi, i think the hidden partition is mainly for the OF and bootloader but i am not 100% sure tho.. i have to look at the info again
03:57:21junzihmm, so better leave it alone... can i at least format the first partition, or are there any required files (apart from the .rockbox folder)?
03:58:31advcomp2019yes and the OF.mi4 file in the system folder
03:59:27*ameyer thought the firmware partition was the first partition
04:00:25ameyernevermind, I got it reversed
04:00:57junziadvcomp2019: no *.mi4 file in the system folder or anywhere else on this sansa...
04:02:07advcomp2019you need that file to boot into the sansa firmware for USB and charging
04:03:35ameyerI thought you only put a mi4 in the root directory to upgrade the firmware and it got copied to the system partition
04:04:59junzino *mi4* on this sansa, and it connects to USB and charges just fine, also with the original firmware...
04:05:04ameyerthe only mi4 I can find is /.rockbox/rockbox.mi4

04:05:36 Nick num1_ is now known as num1 (n=brian@unaffiliated/num1)
04:05:56advcomp2019it might be OF.bin
04:06:30junzino *.bin either
04:07:45ameyerI'm 99% sure the OF is on the hidden partition
04:10:35advcomp2019yea but you need the /system/OF.mi4 or OF.bin to able to get into the Sansa firmware since Rockbox does not have USB support for the sansas unless you have USB support enable build
04:11:57*ameyer facepalms
04:13:04junzihmm, would there be a way to recreate that hidden firmware partiton in case it gets deleted or corrupted?
04:14:31advcomp2019the e200tool if i remember right
04:17:15junzianyone still using an archos? do i understand correctly that i could put a 500gb hdd in an archos v1 recorder, setting up 4 x 125gb partitions, only 1 partiton would be accessible via usb, the other 3 need to be preloaded before i put the hdd in...? :)
04:18:37ameyerwhat size HD does the archos recorder use
04:18:52ameyerlike, 2.5", 1.8", 1", etc.
04:18:57junziameyer: 2.5" 9mm height
04:19:36ameyerI *think* you might be able to get away with 137 for the USB-accessible partition if you're right
04:21:18ameyermmm, 500GB of 320 kbps mp3
04:21:35junziyeah, turn your mp3 into a monster... :)
04:22:19junziand the archos has digital out, and i have a dedicated dac ... :)
04:22:23ameyeram I right when I calculate 1157.4 days
04:22:36ameyerheck, the archoses do wav, right?
04:23:06ameyeryay 3 years of mp3s...
04:23:17ameyer(that can't be right)
04:23:39junzino, archoses do mp3 only, nothing else, hardware mp3 decoder...
04:24:25ameyerI swear they figured out a way to get wav to play
04:25:18junzihmm, 320k lame preset insane sounds good enough for me... ;)
04:26:38ameyerok, 144 days
04:27:37ameyerstill, that's a censored-ton of reasonably high-quality music

05:05:35RiyonukI just see the default backdrop, and when playing a song, these white lines that constantly move horizontally
05:05:54MarcGuayRiyonuk: Themes are tempermental. If it's only one theme that isn't working, chances are there is something wrong with that particular bit and not your entire installation.
05:05:55Riyonukthat's what I see, ALL THE TIME
05:06:10RiyonukCan you give me a theme YOU know works, just to test?
05:06:51MarcGuayRiyonuk: Any of the included ones.
05:07:15*ameyer points out that the theme Riyonuk is talking about probably wasn't upgraded to work after the last theme-breaking change
05:07:56MarcGuayThere were changes to the WPS syntax that broke a lot of themes. Try the ones from the gallery in the wiki.
05:07:58advcomp2019Riyonuk, those themes on that site might be broken
05:08:05cool_walkingYeah, I can't even see it in the WPS graveyard.
05:08:28*MarcGuay wonders why that site still exists.
05:08:46RiyonukI want the Zelda one though T_T
05:09:15cool_walkingYou'll have to modify it to work with the new syntax. Read the CustomWPS wiki page.

05:14:03RiyonukAlso, where am I supposed to be putting my files? I formatted everything, so all I have is .rockbox. Do I put it as .rockbox/Music, or /Music?
05:15:23cool_walkingit doesn't really matter, but inside .rockbox is not good for a couple of reasons.
05:16:25cool_walking.rockbox is hidden by default, and there's a database.ignore file in there, so the database scan won't pick up any music in there.
05:17:21cool_walkingBut basically you can put it anywhere you want.
05:18:11Riyonukdo I really need the database if I'm organized anyways?

05:19:59cool_walkingThe initialiazation (ideally should only be done once, then "updates" are done subsequently) can completely drain the battery.
05:20:06cool_walkingI don't use the database though.

05:24:36cool_walkingThere are some icon sets on the IconSets wiki page.
05:25:33cool_walkingerr.. did you change the theme (.cfg file) or just the WPS (.wps file)?
05:26:40cool_walkingThe .cfg sets background image, sets font, etc. The .wps is just the While Playing Screen.

18:28:27gevaertsThat will run some code on the c250. It will take a while

18:30:04gevaertsAfter that, you can do an e200tool recovery
18:30:39gevaertsOnce you get it running again, I recommend reformatting it from inside the sandisk firmware
18:30:51ptbarnI thought it might be a hardware problem
18:31:42gevaertsProbably not. The Sandisk firmware is really bad at handling some sorts of data corruption, like a bad FAT superblock or a bad partition table

19:01:04linuxstbIn terms of keeping it simple for users, separate pages (SansaE200Unbrick and SansaC200Unbrick) might be better. The page is already complicated enough, without lots of "if you have c200 do this, if you have e200 do this" sections.

19:08:34MarcGuayMight be nice to rename it to avoid confusion. (Not that c200 doesn't already confuse people, but anyway...)

19:20:38tonyspeaksHI there. I'm a blind user, and I'm having trouble creating .talk files with the rock box utilities. I've already been to the forums for a slution to this problem, and there isn't enough information there about it for me to get a handle on it.
19:20:58domonokytonyspeaks: whats the problem ?
19:21:08tonyspeaksIt's the encoding errror. It tries to encode something in a temp file and says it can't.
19:21:19 Quit miepchen^schlaf ()
19:21:31tonyspeaksIt worked fine when I used thhe utility to encode directly onto my micro sd card, but not when I used the player.
19:21:51domonokywhich OS is this ?
19:21:57tonyspeaksWindows Vista.

19:23:05domonokyhm, i have never tested the util on vista.. this is rbutil1.0.7b ?
19:24:04tonyspeaksI was trying to use a voice other than Anna because I dont' like that voice, and it gave me that encoding error. Like I said, I was able to use the utility to encode talk files onto a micro SD card, and it worked great.
19:24:19*domonoky thinks that it probably has problems generating a voicefile for some files. and then encoding fails, because the wav file doesnt exist..
19:24:24tonyspeaksbut not at all whhen I used the player. It's a Sansa e200.
19:24:55tonyspeakstrouble generating a wave file?
19:25:21tonyspeaksIt says taht it can't encode the talk file, but it didn't say why. I suppose that makes sense.
19:25:22domonokyyes. it uses a tts engine to create a wav file from the filenames..
19:25:41domonokyand then it encodes those wav files to talkclips..
19:26:08tonyspeaksAt first I thought it might be something wrong with the way it handles the TTS engine, but it worked when I tried to use the micro sd card.
19:26:36domonokytry pointing it to only subfolder on your sansa with only a few files...
19:26:53domonokyto see if this works...
19:27:04tonyspeaksOkay. I'll let you know
19:27:08tonyspeaksThanks .
19:27:14domonokybut i suspect a problematic filename on your device.
19:28:02domonokyIf you find the offending file, please make it somehow available (filename is enough) so i can improve the talkfile generation :-)
19:28:05amiconnHow "great". Resume bugs are back :(
19:28:46tonyspeakshm. I try to look point it to the directory contining my music on the player, but it doesn't see it. It sees the other directories though, like photo and video, and the .rockbox directory.
19:29:14domonokyi think the music directory is hidden on sansa...
19:29:37domonokyyou can also just enter the path into the box 8with out selecting it via browse)
19:29:47tonyspeaksokay. Leme see if I can unhide it with ... okay I'll try that.
19:31:05domonokyanother unrelated question: how is accessibility of our util on vista ? does it work good with screenreader ?
19:31:09tonyspeaksIt's running now. It usually geneartes the error after a while, so I'll wait and see.
19:32:16tonyspeaksnot too wonderful, but I don't think you can help that. Unless you can implememtn implement native Windows controls, which I heard is out of the question, or use MSAA somehow, I don't thinkk it can be made very accessible. I'm pretty good with my reader though, so I can work with it okay

19:32:34amiconntonyspeaks: If rbutil doesn't work when generating .talk clips, you could also try VoiceBox
19:33:21tonyspeaksMy biggest problem with it is tha that the error messages / dialogs letting me know when a process is finished won't read at all except for the okay button.
19:33:49tonyspeaksMy problem with the voice box is that it won't let me use any other voice than microsoft Anna. It works great other than that.
19:33:52domonokytonyspeaks: if your are able to use it, its good :-) There are ways to improve accessibility, but for this we need to now exactly what doesnt work..
19:34:06amiconn(although VoiceBox wasn't tested on Vista so far either)
19:34:14tonyspeaksthe names of the tab controls don't read. It only says "tab."
19:34:45tonyspeaksMaybe I should try running all these things on an XP machine.
19:35:01domonokyfor example i have improved the progressdialog, so in svn you should be able to find more than "ok" :-)
19:35:49domonokythe Tab problem is known, its a Qt bug wich will be hopefully fixed someday..
19:36:00tonyspeaksoh? I don't know SVN very well at all. Will that help get a later build than what is on the releases page?
19:36:27 Quit ptbarn2 ("CGI:IRC")
19:36:36domonokyits a bit difficult to build rbutils your self, so better wait for the next release :-)
19:37:34tonyspeaksAnother accessibility issue is in the configure tts dialog. It doesn't read the prompts, so I can't tell if I'm configuring the volume or some other thing that has a numberic value. I can choose the voice and language with no problem whtough.
19:38:10tonyspeaksI'll wait for the next relase then. SVN is really unfamiliar to me.

19:41:19domonokyi think there is a problematic file on your player (not on the card) which makes the generating fail.. but i could be wrong :-)
19:42:00tonyspeaksI think you're probably right. It says it can't encode the talk file, but it seems to try to encode it into a temp directory.
19:42:09tonyspeakson my local hard drive.
19:43:46domonokyyes, it generates wav file in a temp directory on your harddrive, and then when it encodes them, it puts them to the player
19:44:25tonyspeaksdoes it do all the encoding first then send the talk files to the player?
19:44:30amiconnBah, .talk clips are broken too :((
19:44:36domonokyperhaps i should also improve the error message, so you know which file fails :-)
19:45:17domonokyit first creates all wav files, and then encodes directly to the player
19:45:36tonyspeaksI think it said the name of the file, but I can't remember. My son had to read me the error message because I can only see the graphics and the okay button with my screen reader.
19:46:16domonokyoh, no. it does all locally, and copies later.
19:46:27tonyspeaksI remember it said it couldn't encode c:\blah blah\temp\ That sounded like it was trying to encode to the temp directory.
19:46:53tonyspeaksoh okay. Then it may be some problem with one of the wave files.
19:47:07 Join hannesd [0] (
19:47:31domonokyno, thats just because they are intermediate files... so i think the voicing silently fails, and there is no file to encode :-)
19:48:00domonokydid it work to generate talk files only for the music dir ?
19:48:10tonyspeakshmm. I forgot that was runnning
19:48:14tonyspeaksLaughing Out Loud let me see.
19:48:28tonyspeaksIt's still going
19:48:41tonyspeaksIt never went that long before
19:50:10tonyspeaksbbs, need to step away.
19:50:23*domonoky detects also failed encodings when he tries talk generation on his dir of problematic files.. there is work todo :-)

20:05:53gevaertsOne thing you could try is using c240erase (same URL, except it's a 4 instead of a 5). If the problem is bad flash, this may work
20:06:07gevaertsYou'll end up with a 1GB player though
20:06:15tonyspeaksDomonoky, I'll let you know if I find a problematic file.
20:06:38ptbarntry the c240erase?

20:07:52ptbarneverything seemed fine inside

20:08:24ptbarnlike to get the c250erase to show up on th device
20:08:33ptbarnand read off the zeroing of memory
20:08:41ptbarnwas like 1 out of 5 times
20:09:00tonyspeaksDomonoky, the encoding of talk files worked when I just pointed it to the music folder on the player.
20:09:23gevaertsThat may be normal. Manufacturer mode can be a bit picky
20:09:34domonokytonyspeaks: good, so the problematic file is outside of "music" :-)
20:09:44tonyspeaksyes, thank God.
20:09:57tonyspeaksIt won't be difficult to find it now.
20:11:53linuxstbamiconn: Do you know what Zagor did, or just that it was that commit?
20:11:56tonyspeaksDomonoky, I want to thank you very m uch for your help with this. I have to get back to work now, but I will come back on and let you know where that problem file is just in case it's useful information, justt in case it's player specific, and I'll be filling out a fly spray report for the utility accessibility stuff
20:12:08amiconnlinuxstb: I found the problem
20:12:26ptbarnahh, ok. Hmm, hope it's not a hardware issue, the "Zeroing status" would get to different points (when it did work) and then show the panic message. If it was a memory problem, I assume it would have been happening at the same kB "Zeroing status"
20:12:28domonokytonyspeaks: good. the problematic filename is usefull
20:12:41amiconnWhen he split id3.c, he replaced the call to get_mp3_metadata() in mp3info() with a call to get_metadata()
20:12:49tonyspeaksI'll talk to you soon then. Have a great day, and thanks again.
20:12:54 Quit tonyspeaks ("I was using BOFHNet IRC version 1.2 by fmillion - get your copy today from !")
20:13:21amiconnHowever, hwcodec calls mp3info() for talking (in order to skip eventual id3v2 tags)
20:13:28gevaertsptbarn: once it gets started, it should run without problems. It's just the first upload that can be tricky
20:13:56amiconnget_metadata() tries to guess the file format from the extension before calling the appropriate get_*_metadata() function
20:14:23amiconnBut get_metadata() doesn't know that .talk is mp3... it fails, and .talk clips don't work
20:15:17linuxstbSo Rockbox checks .talk clips for id3 tags?
20:15:34domonokyshoudnt we then just make .talk known to get_metadata() ? (as mp3 for hwcodec, speex for swcodec)
20:15:41amiconnYes, in order to skip them. They might cause funny noise when fed to the MAS
20:15:50amiconndomonoky: No, why?
20:16:03amiconnSwcodec doesn't call mp3info() for .talk clips
20:16:15ptbarnyeah, that was the weird thing, one time I decided to try something different. So I kept my thumb on the middle button while it was "Zeroing"
20:16:23ptbarnfor about a minute and a half
20:16:28ptbarnI thought all might be well
20:16:31amiconnAnd the function is called _mp3info_, implying it checks for mp3 *only*
20:16:34ptbarnso I let go of the middle button
20:16:48ptbarnand I immedietly got a panic
20:17:00ptbarnthen when I tried again the next time
20:17:01Strife89MarcGuay: I'm not certian.
20:17:14ptbarnI didn't let go of the button
20:17:21ptbarnand still go the panic
20:17:39ptbarnmy c250 is finicky
20:17:46MarcGuayIit appears that the c140s all use the NAND interface and the c150s use the SD-style, which is nice in that it provides an easy way to distinguish them. Working OF version is another way. Ramble.
20:18:33gevaertsptbarn: c240erase probably won't help then
20:18:54MarcGuayStrife89: Talkin' c100 series, in case you thought c200.

22:32:03n1swebguest54: that is incredibly weird... does the version of the original firmware change if you flash a different version? I.e does a regular upgrade work

22:32:21webguest54i guess the 6th time's a charm. now i'm seeing bootloader usb mode
22:32:37webguest54to install rbox now, i just unzip rockbox to the root directory correct??
22:32:40BeChrisgevaerts : ok, i will post it right now on FS #9492 and ask for feedback
22:32:49n1swebguest54: yes
22:32:55gevaertsfml: another view could be that if you can't write safe code without the various *n* functions, you shouldn't touch the core anyway ;)
22:33:35n1sRiyonuk: yes, rockbox always starts from an off state, the original firmware sleeps instead of powering down completely
22:34:06webguest54there was some weird "eng" folder that i deleted
22:34:07RiyonukThat's horrible :(
22:34:11webguest54i wonder if that had something to do with it
22:34:34 Join karashata [0] (n=kimi@
22:34:37gevaertsRiyonuk: does it really take that long?
22:34:45webguest54thanks for your help everyone, better support here than almost any commercial product in the world
22:34:48RiyonukIt kinda does XD
22:35:07*gevaerts never found rockbox boot times "horrible"
22:35:56RiyonukEh, just wondering. Would be wonderful if I didn't see a splash screen, or the apple logo evertime I boot up, never saw that with normal firmware.
22:36:07*mcuelenaere notices a HTML bug on the wiki pages
22:36:10linuxstbRiyonuk: That's the same reason
22:36:28mcuelenaerehas this already been reported?
22:36:36MarcGuaymcuelenaere: I saw it but didn't say anything.
22:36:45webguest54does rockbox support charging via usb for the h320?
22:36:51MarcGuayThought it might be one of Firefox's new tricks.
22:37:05Riyonuklinuxstb, same reason what?
22:37:08*mcuelenaere thinks Twiki is thinking PayPal is a wiki page
22:37:14fmlgevaerts: I think that we shouldn't make firmware code dependent on the app layer code. If we had standard string sizes for all the different cases then we could probably do without n-functions in the firmware layer. But since we don't have them I'd use n-funcs.
22:37:39amiconnBagder: ?
22:37:41mcuelenaereMarcGuay: look at the source, you'll see the bug
22:37:45linuxstbRiyonuk: The apple logo is displayed by Apple's bootloader when your ipod is powered on. You don't see that normally because the original firmware doesn't power off.
22:37:46Bagderamiconn: ?
22:38:05amiconn[22:21:08] <amiconn> Bagder: Could you make the release download page point to 3.0.1 for the archoses?
22:38:09mcuelenaerein the <img alt=""> tag, there's this word PayPal and Twiki presumes it's a wiki page
22:38:19Bagderit's in progress
22:38:27Riyonuklinuxstb, so curious, is that a good thing? Am I preservering battery that way?
22:39:00mcuelenaereany wiki admins around?
22:39:22linuxstbMaybe a tiny amount. But the main reason Rockbox doesn't have a "sleep mode" is that nobody has cared enough to implement it.
22:39:30*Bagder blames zagor for that paypal thing
22:39:56mcuelenaerewasn't there a wiki bug report page?
22:40:33pixelmaWikiIssues or similar
22:40:44MarcGuaymcuelenaere: It's linked from the wiki side-bar page.
22:40:56amiconnBagder: I asked again because I didn't ee any response...

22:46:09Bagderman I spell good
22:46:39LambdaCalculus37And they're up!
22:47:01linuxstbNico_P: That chained-ogg-file task (FS #9502) seems like a valid bug (if true...)
22:47:03Bagderthe source archive is still 3.0 though
22:47:54Nico_Plinuxstb: yes, maybe I was a bit quick to close it. it looks a lot like a FR though
22:48:11linuxstbNico_P: Yes, it's a bug report disguised as a feature request...
22:48:59amiconnBagder: Hmm. We should probably offer a 3.0.1 source archive...
22:49:00Nico_Pit also links to a torrent of dubious legality
22:49:32Bagderamiconn: did you tag the 3.0.1?
22:50:33linuxstbNico_P: I don't think it's dubious - it looks plain illegal...
22:50:50Nico_Pindeed. I said that before checking ;)
22:50:58amiconnNo I didn't. You said you could do that... /me would have to read up on tagging in the svn tutorial...
22:51:15BagderI added a command line to the release checklist wiki, but I can do it sure
22:51:21 Join lacrstech [0] (n=lacrstec@
22:51:30linuxstbNico_P: But IIUC, chained ogg files are just created with "cat file1.ogg file2.ogg file3.ogg > chained.ogg"
22:52:05linuxstbWhich is what makes them Rockbox unfriendly - we would need to scan the entire file to find out how many ogg files there are.
22:52:30amiconnr18843 was the last commit for 3.0.1 (the flashing chapter in the manual)
22:53:24Bagderamiconn: but nothing else has been committed to the 3.0 branch since, has it?
22:53:28Nico_Plinuxstb: how hard would it be to prevent the crash?
22:54:06amiconnBagder: no
22:54:57linuxstbNico_P: I seem to remember writing code to detect chained ogg files... Let me check the source.
22:55:06amiconnlinuxstb: Imo rockbox should just play the first part of chained ogg files, then stop
22:55:26olegfinkMarcGuay: page, probably, but not the problems
22:55:30olegfinkwhat are they?
22:55:37amiconn(and it should limit buffering to the first part)
22:56:31linuxstbamiconn: That's not easy either. IIRC, ogg files are split into pages, and each page contains a timestamp./duration for that page. To find the duration of a track, you need to find the first and last pages, and subtract the timestamps.
22:56:40RiyonukIs there a way to test themes on my computer before transferring to the iPod?
22:57:19amiconnlinuxstb: Erm... I thought ogg was a sane format... obviously it isn't
22:57:27linuxstbThere is code in the Ogg metadata parser that checks the serial numbers of the first and last pages in the file - if they don't match, it should mean a chained ogg file, and Rockbox should reject it completely.
22:57:34linuxstbamiconn: No it's not...
22:57:36amiconnA sane format would allow finding its playing time without seeking to the end
22:57:42 Quit mf0102 ("Ex-Chat")
22:57:42fml jdGordon (for the log): couldn't we throw away the last parameter (len) in the macro FILENAME_SETTING (in settings_list.c) and use sizeof() instead (and subtract the prefix/suffix length if they are defined)? This way we'd avoid repeating the values in settings.h and settings_list.c
22:57:44MarcGuayolegfink: No compiler, I believe. Read the motorola link.
22:57:52amiconnEven mp3 does that (cbr or vbr with xing header)
22:58:27linuxstbamiconn: Yes, it surprised me too.

23:10:27olegfinkMarcGuay: the motorola link suggests a few compilers, and seem that guy used some other one
23:10:33amiconnDo they stay symlinks?
23:10:43*amiconn has no idea how the files are synced
23:11:12Bagderhm, it depends on what rsync options they use
23:11:23 Quit Riyonuk ()
23:11:23Bagderit seems they might get turned into plain files by default...
23:11:55amiconnI would think that if the other servers don't use the exact same directory structure, symlinks would break when synced
23:12:11Bagderthey will work since they do use the exact same structure
23:12:24BagderI only symlink relative within our own tree
23:12:51Bagder=> ../3.0/... style
23:13:13Bagderso it doesn't really matter if they end up links or real files
23:13:31*amiconn had seen relative symlinks break in the past... but that was quite long ago
23:13:33Bagderat least not if the web servers allow symlinks
