#rockbox log for 2008-12-29

00:00:15Tornethanks, all!
00:00:19Tornevery helpful
00:00:37ZagorTorne: you're welcome
00:00:48Torneif you're curious, i'm trying to port frotz :)
00:01:24Tornewhich is pretty nicely coded to be portable, but expects a *little* more from the OS abstraction than rockbox can actually provide :)
00:01:39Zagorthat could be really nice!
00:01:56Unhelpful...actually, if you know enough about how the stack is managed, would it be easier to "return" from another function in the call stack than to implement an actual setjmp/longjmp?
00:01:58Tornetext adventures in their traditional form are unlikely to be very playable on rb of course
00:02:02Zagorour text input isn't the best though
00:02:10Tornebut my intention is to support more menu-driven things
00:02:20Tornethe zmachine is just a nice text-centric VM that can do that kind of stuff
00:02:22 Quit Thundercloud (Remote closed the connection)
00:02:32Tornethere are Inform libraries that replace the standard parser with menu input
00:02:41Torneto ake more choose-your-own-adventure style games
00:02:45 Join Thundercloud [0] (
00:02:53Tornemy personal goal is to write something like a turn based RPG
00:03:18Tornes'only going to work on the platforms with lots of ram, though :)
00:03:27Torneatm i have a 256KB buffer for the story
00:03:28Unhelpfulhrm, you could maybe target the chip8 emu, for that purpose, rather than z-machine?
00:03:51Tornechip8 is kind of tiny
00:03:51amiconnUnhelpful: No crash on linux either (I'm testing on 64 bit though)
00:04:02Tornez-machine v5 can address 256KB of code/text
00:04:04amiconnThere already is a chip8 emu plugin
00:04:08Torne(though a lot less than that for variables)
00:04:43Tornei'm after text, not graphics
00:04:46Unhelpfulamiconn: weird. might be a compiler glitch, or to do w/ the offending title or font... who knows? :/
00:04:55Tornein the absence of graphics, lots of text is normally used (thousand words, and all that)
00:05:10Torneso having the ability to address a lot of strings (in the fairly clever way the zmachine does) is handy
00:05:20Unhelpfuli don't see how "6 Biggest Hits" could be causing it to draw from a nonexistent glyph, though :/
00:05:21ZagorTorne: you can grab the audiobuffer on lowmem targets. then you will fit on all players.
00:05:43Tornei've got a 64mb ipod, though
00:05:46Torneso for now this will do :)

00:05:58Tornethough it won;t be able to run z8 like this either
00:06:02amiconnUnhelpful: Btw, I think the scrolling in PF should obey the global scroll settings instead of doing its own. What is most annoying imho is the fact that it does back & forth scrolling without any pauses
00:06:07Tornesince z8 stories can be 512kb which is the entire plugin buffer
00:06:18Torne_Auron_: ram, not disk
00:06:24_Auron_oh :O
00:06:29Torne_Auron_: ipod video 60/80gb have 64mb ram, 30gb has only 32mb
00:06:33_Auron_I see
00:06:57caravanHi, I was thinking about buying a sansa fuze...someone has some feedback about it?
00:07:14Zagorcaravan: other than it not being supported yet?
00:07:33Zagorcaravan: then you want to be in #rockbox-community...
00:07:36TorneZagor: but anyway, yah. first step is getting frotz to run at all with some simple zmachine test stories
00:07:38_Auron_well I've seen entire console-style rpgs developed for TI calculators that have 24kb of RAM :P and 8kb limit on code
00:07:41caravanI read the thread about it, and
00:07:49Torne_Auron_: i don't like graphics so much
00:07:56caravanjust want to know more
00:08:04Torne_Auron_: i mean more like a D&D style RPG
00:08:13Tornelots of description of places and stuff
00:08:39ZagorTorne: yeah, start easy. if you pull it off on ipod I'm pretty sure you will get plenty of help with other targets :)
00:08:53TorneZagor: yah. i would be developing some Inform libraries to help people write games for it too
00:08:56_Auron_mm, a rogue-like would be good for rockbox. though players tend to lack buttons..
00:09:09Torneanyway, i need to bail

00:10:55 Quit webguest28 ("CGI:IRC (Ping timeout)")
00:13:49Unhelpfulhow hard would it be to use the actual core functions in PF? the most ideal would be some sort of struct scroll_context, and a func to update it, and let the caller deal with actual drawing, but i can understand very well why core might not *have* such a thing already.
00:15:32pixelmadon't other plugins already use core scrolling? I'm thinking of the text_editor and such
00:15:53saratogaanyone here familar with the gigabeat S port?
00:16:31Unhelpfulsaratoga: only as a user, really.
00:17:14Unhelpfulpixelma: is it exposed in such a way that greylib apps can use it? the tracklist is still greylib, only the menu is native
00:17:18saratogaUnhelpful: do you know if the firmware partition is mounted by rockbox?
00:17:24saratogain USB mode that is
00:18:07Unhelpfulthe OF firmware one, with the nk.bin on it? it's exposed to host computers via USB in rockbox, if that's what you mean.
00:18:13 Join Slack_ [0] (
00:18:19pixelmaUnhelpful: no idea
00:18:45saratogaUnhelpful: so two partitions get mounted?
00:19:12Unhelpfultwo partitions are visible. i only mount the firmware one if i'm updating the bootloader.
00:19:34Unhelpfulpixelma: time to dig, then? :D
00:20:02saratogaUnhelpful: have you updated the bootloader since installing?
00:20:14Unhelpfulyes, but not any time recently
00:20:26saratogaok thanks
00:21:08saratogais it possible to dump an entire partition to a file in Windows or cygwin? I don't have a linux box handy
00:22:08amiconnsaratoga: USe dd in cygwin, or windows native dd
00:22:22Unhelpfuldd should be able to, i don't know how you specify the device, though
00:22:31Unhelpfulare you working on looking for the OF binary? :D
00:23:18saratogaUnhelpful: yes I wanted to take a quick look at that
00:23:25_Auron_I wish I could browse songs by file directory instead of artist/genre/album/etc on my sansa right now <_<
00:23:29saratogai've got a fresh gigabeatS here thats not been rockboxed yet
00:24:20amiconnDevice names for cygwin dd are simple. Cygwin maps the windows' "harddisk 0" to sda, harddisk 1 to sdb etc
00:24:25Unhelpfulif the blocks aren't consecutive, i'd imagine you could still search for each block of the OF
00:24:30 Quit lasser ("ChatZilla 0.9.84 [Iceweasel 3.0.4/2008112309]")
00:24:46amiconnWindows native dd uses the cryptic raw device names, but has a list option to figure them out
00:25:00saratogai'm hoping they are consecutive, it would be odd to flash the device with a fragmented image
00:25:04 Quit kiddecks (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:25:53Unhelpfulmaybe, but since you can "flash" the device by sending a firmware file to the OF, which i assume uses a filesystem driver to write it to disk... :/
00:26:00Zagor /* Never use the last buffer descriptor */ ??? then why do we have it?
00:26:08Unhelpfulthe pre-OF recovery mode seems to work the same way, as well.

00:32:52amiconncygdrive mirrors the drive letters
00:33:10amiconnRaw device access needs /dev/sdX. These are purely virtual
00:33:56Unhelpfulpixelma: i can't work on it now, but it appears that other plugins use lcd_puts_scroll, which is native, of course. ideally, this should probably be reimplimented in greylib, rather than directly in pf.
00:34:38saratogaamiconn: i don't have anything but fd, stdin, etc in /dev
00:34:45saratogado i need to type something to mount them there?
00:35:23amiconnYou're not mounting them, just accessing them like on linux. There won't be any files, that's why I said they're virtual

00:46:32saratogai ran the battery down on my beast while it was in storage, can i charge it off the USB?
00:46:57Unhelpfuli'm not sure who all was involved in talking about timing the scaler itself, sans loader, before, but it looks like ARM11 at least has some performance counter registers, that can be configured to count various things, including clock cycles.
00:50:03Unhelpfulthey can count all sorts of *other* events, as well, so it might be worthwhile to set up some debug stuff using them, that would make it easy to test certain pieces of code with logf messages
00:50:47 Quit ender` (" To get as fewest unhappy people as possible, always bully the same ones.")
00:50:49saratogai guess i'll just leave it plugged into USB for a while and see if the low battery error goes away
00:51:15Unhelpfulsaratoga: my experience has been that it does not, but i've never tried it for very long.
00:54:39saratogawell worth a shot since i left the dc adapter on the other side of the country
00:55:13amiconnsaratoga: The beast will charge from usb with a recent enough build (and if you don't run into the problem that I got...)
00:57:36amiconn(recent enough means >= r19547)
00:58:50Zagoris there a purpose to having the pcmbuf descriptors in the actual pcm buffer?
01:00:16Zagorah, yes. the number of descriptors varies based of crossfeed settings.
01:01:53Zagorbuf this explains why the buffer is never used more than ~60-70%. and also why the watermark is totally off. the "pcm buffer" contains loads of things besides just the pcm data to be played.
01:02:18Zagorthe pcm watermark is rather a "critical mark"
01:02:27 Quit QUICKSTART (Remote closed the connection)
01:02:47Zagorsince it is not used for triggering buffer fill. only for triggering cpu boost.

02:58:48onlysoaaWhat's up guys, I'm starting a Samsung P2 port for Rockbox.
02:59:23onlysoaaLooking through the wiki, I'm currently editing the configure script, but I don't understand that "tool" parameter.
02:59:45onlysoaaSome players use cp, some others use scramble -add=model
02:59:58onlysoaaWhat's the difference, why's that?
03:01:31kugelonlysoaa: depends on the firmware format your player accepts
03:01:51onlysoaaSince the P2 and the D2 are fairly similar, I was thinking of starting off with the D2's code as a base, then modifying it to suit the P2's hardware.
03:02:06kugelsome player need a special format (e.g. mi4 file format), others can use plain rockbox header+binary
03:02:22kugelyep, that's probably the best to do
03:02:46kugelthose who use plain binary are those with "scramble -add=model"
03:02:52onlysoaaAhh. Well the P2 takes a simple binary, but now I'm confused as to what I should do about the -add=X parameter in scramble.
03:02:58 Quit Aurix_Lexico (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
03:03:21onlysoaaLooking through scramble.c, it seems that it assigns each target a modelnum, but does it matter what number the P2 gets?
03:03:33onlysoaaShould I just add it at the bottom and use the previous one +1?
03:04:04kugelonlysoaa: there's the 4-char model string which will be in the rockbox header of the resulting binary
03:04:45kugelyou can choose what you like (should be something indicating samsung p2), but you also need to edit tools/scramble.c accordingly
03:05:34onlysoaaAh, I see. It doesn't affect the firmware in any way though, right?
03:05:38kugelonlysoaa: I have actually no idea what modelnum is used for, in the config-<target>.h there's another model id define which is more used
03:05:46onlysoaaJust for identification purposes?
03:05:54kugelbut the c200v2 is the latest added, so take that one +1
03:05:55onlysoaa.....that's consistent. :D
03:07:48kugelonlysoaa: I strongly recommend looking at recent "initial port" commits, those are a great reference about what has to be done to integrate a port into the rockbox tree
03:08:18onlysoaaAh, thanks for the tip.

04:57:53Unhelpfulthe retailOS boot sequence does a *lot* of stuff before the "real" firmware loads, but unfortunately, it doesn't do USB charging.
04:58:44Unhelpfulbut it will repartition and format the drive, and ask for you to load a firmware, if pretty much anything isn't right. :/

05:04:16jhMikeSah, if you can't get it that far it won't draw from USB until software is able to turn it on anyway.

06:56:39CheBuzzI have read that the Sansa e200 had a bug in the bootloader that allowed for a dummy signature to be used to load Rockbox. What I can't find is info on this "dummy signature". Anybody know the nature of the bug?
06:56:51CheBuzzOr where I can find out more about it?
06:58:24labradorkHi, does anyone know how I can roll my version of rockbox back to 3.0?
06:59:24scorche|shlabradork: why would you want to?...and do it the same way as you would update a build...extract the 3.0 zip to the root
06:59:41CheBuzzI've seen that. It doesn't explain _why_ the dummy sig works, nor what the bug is
07:00:25CheBuzz"which is a fixed combination that is a known flaw in the DSA algorithm"
07:00:27scorche|shCheBuzz: bottom of the page..
07:01:06CheBuzzDo they use something like a bleichenbacher attack?
07:02:03labradorkwell, I bought my friend an mp3 player, same as mine, but her menus are different, 3.1 didn't change the menu structure much did it?
07:02:54scorche|shCheBuzz: is just a dummy signature...
07:03:11labradorkwhen I extract the files aren't landing in the .rockbox folder.
07:04:19CheBuzzWell, obviously it must be some "special" dummy signature, otherwise it wouldn't verify. How do they get it to verify, what's the bug in the DSA algorithm? That's my question.
07:10:32labradorkyay! thanks for listening to my prattle. i think it works now.

10:58:01bertrikI think it would be useful to understand why people are not happy with it, or make a top-10 of reasons why people uninstall rockbox, so we can use that to improve it.
11:00:36bertrikof course, you can't please all the people all the time, but perhaps we could for example add a dialog box in rbutil on uninstallation where people can (voluntarily) mention their reason for uninstalling

17:40:56gartral1i have a bug in pictureflow, on the sansa e250 v1, running r19610: pictureflow fails if music is playing, the error given is "could not read the empty slide" and then "plugin returned error", i think its ram based, because it only does this when the playback buffers are near/at full
17:41:28{}zombierunning the rbutil (in ubuntu), i get an error "permission for disc access denied"

17:46:58gartral1hmmm, one sec
17:47:07gevaerts{}zombie: you may need to run it with sudo
17:47:26{}zombiethink i tried that, but i'll try again
17:47:27amiconnUnhelpful: I think so
17:47:58*amiconn had another idea for PF support on non-AA targets
17:48:31amiconnThe database itself doesn't contain the actual AA information, it is only used for looking up the album path, name etc
17:48:44{}zombienothing happens when i try to run as root, from command line
17:49:11gartral1should my error be files under all players, or should it remain player specific?
17:49:17amiconnThere is a function in the core that tries to find the AA file based on this data. So on a non-AA target this function would need to reside in the PF plugin, with no other changes necessary
17:49:22{}zombieactually, it says "command not found" unless i do gksudo, and then nothing happens
17:50:07gevaerts{}zombie: you need to run it as "sudo ./rbutil". The current directory is not in your path...
17:50:38*gartral1 keeps forgetting about the path macro he has
17:51:08{}zombieheh, ok, progress maybe... but now it says no sansa found

17:51:59{}zombietell me this doesn't work with R...
17:52:00gartral1here, on sec
17:52:38gevaertsIt does, but rbutil doesn't do the R, so you need to do a manual install
17:52:44gartral1its not that it doesnt wwork, its just that the first time installation is a little different

18:11:28Unhelpfulamiconn: bitmaps are converted. i think moving AA search into PF if AA is disabled, and only requiring tagcache, is the way to go. i'll try to look at doing that later.

21:27:52Unhelpfulkugel: i'm not sure about that, and i doubt it would be deemed acceptable to search for AA and store the cover file path in the DB on targets where AA is not used.
21:29:54kugelUnhelpful: I just wanted to point to it :)
21:30:24Unhelpfulfair enough. i'm really not sure if that's a good idea even for AA, really
21:30:42 Quit bluebrother ("leaving")
21:31:16kugelbut iiuc it doesn't cost ram (except the code searching for it), if you don't use the database node, the corresponding index file doesn't get loaded ever
21:32:45kugelZagor: It's probably rather subjective, but I actually think the way I did it is more (or equally readable). And again, I really oriented myself on how it's done with the CONFIG_CHARGING
21:33:29kugelI don't mind changing it, you know how such things are supposed to be better, and I don't feel so strong about it
21:34:11amiconnUnhelpful: Currently I only know of a single files in the core tree (which isn't even used in the core) that is used in plugins: sscanf
21:34:39amiconnYou're right about the bmp loader & scaler, that would need to reside in the pluginlib as well on mono targets
21:34:51amiconnDo you know how much ram PF needs at least?
21:35:49*amiconn wonders why the tracker is so slooooow
21:36:05Zagorkugel: the big difference is that CONFIG_CHARGING has three alternatives and therefore cannot use a bool style define.
21:36:13Zagoramiconn: it's not slow for me
21:36:25Unhelpfulamiconn: enough for a screen-sized greylib overlay, and enough to load the bitmaps... that's (h/2) * (h*2/3) + (h/2*3) for scaled output on greylib
21:36:50Unhelpfulthe bitmap loading space currently comes from the plugin buffer, and is "freed" before greylib init
21:37:26amiconnHmm, so the requirements are pretty low for bigmem targets. Then why does PF need to stop playback?
21:37:36kugelZagor: just so that we're clear, I was never against changing it, I just wanted to point out why I did it this way :) Of course I'm gonna change it as soon as I have time
21:37:47*amiconn guesses that 'h' means the configured tile height
21:38:02Zagorkugel: ok
21:38:15Unhelpfulamiconn: LCD height, actually.
21:39:02Unhelpfultile height is LCD_HEIGHT*2/3, width is LCD_HEIGHT/2
21:39:26pixelmatracker was slow for me the last days too (from another connection...), didn't notice anything today
21:39:29Zagorkugel: merging the AMS backlight drivers sounds like a good thing if they're all the same
21:39:43kugelZagor: not only ams
21:39:56Unhelpfulactually, that should be (h/2)*(h*2/3)+(h/2*12)
21:40:12Zagorkugel: oh right
21:40:15kugelZagor: it seems to me like a "backlight-as3514" thing
21:40:24Unhelpfuli forgot to account for the scaler temp data being 32-bit :/
21:40:45amiconnYeah, but still...
21:41:06amiconnThat's just a few KB, and the plugin buffer is 512KB on bigmem targets
21:41:30kugelamiconn: probably because it loads some cached album arts
21:41:44kugelwhich were also noticeable bigger than the source album art due to the reflections
21:41:44UnhelpfulPF doesn't stop playback, but it does use bufalloc for loading the cached cover art. that should probably be changed to using what's left of the plugin buffer, if possible.
21:42:03Unhelpfulkugel: reflections are gone, now ;)
21:42:29kugelUnhelpful: yea, that's why I used "were" ;) We already talked about putting it all into the plugin buffer
21:42:42kugelit sounds reasonable to me with the smaller cache files to me
21:42:45Unhelpfulright, "were" :D
21:43:14Unhelpfulif we retain space for one scaled load, i think it *might* be reasonable to talk about cache-on-demand
21:43:57*amiconn is asking because of 2 things. (1) PF should be usable while playing music. (2) how feasible PF would be on low-mem targets (obviously stopping playback would be required on those)
21:44:09kugelUnhelpful: don't you think loading and resizing 20 or so covers all the time won't be noticeably slow?
21:45:22amiconnkugel: The cache file could still hold all pre-scaled, pre-converted images, just that it would need to be loaded in chunks instead of all-at-once
21:45:24Unhelpfulkugel: let me clarify a bit. cache-on-demand, not load-from-original-on-demand. ie, we skip cache building at startup, try to load from the cache, and scale from the source file if the cache misses.
21:45:40kugelah right
21:45:54kugelbut I think the one-time caching doesn't hurt so much

21:46:54kugelZagor: I won't mess with svn mv and svn diff though, as they don't play well together
21:47:19Unhelpfulkugel: yes, but it would do a lot to take the sting out of having some settings invalidate the cache. ie, you switch resize, it takes a few seconds to load the nearest pics, and it will take a few second to load pics when you scroll
21:48:03Zagorkugel: right, that is a limitation with patches
21:48:34kugelUnhelpful: wouldn't that also cause disk-spinups and downs while browsing through covers? That would slow it down even more
21:49:17kugelbut that might be already at its current implementation when I think about it
21:50:12Unhelpfulkugel: those already happen, the disk can spin down, and will spin up again when you browse again, to load more cache images.

21:50:35pixelmayeah, I noticed
21:51:12Unhelpfulamiconn: how big is the plugin buffer on the lowmem mono targets that we're talking about bringing pf to?
21:53:27 Part QUICKSTART ("Konversation terminated!")
21:54:34amiconnUnhelpful: Lowest is 32KB, so there's really not enough space to fit in all the buffer
21:55:00Unhelpfulthe pictureflow plugin itself, linked, is ~25KB on ARM
21:55:21Unhelpfuli'd have to do a lot just to get it to *compile* on SH, i suspect :/

21:57:53amiconnI don't think it'll need much
21:58:11amiconnMain problems are (1) scaling and (2) aa support in pluginlib
21:58:30amiconnThis also applies to the m:robe 100
21:58:35Unhelpfuli can fake the scaling easily enough ;)
21:58:50amiconn(which is bigmem but mono)
21:58:54Unhelpfuli wonder, perhaps, if we ought to skew the luma calc in brightness() a bit on mrobe?

22:01:34Unhelpfulbecause of the deviation from "grey" of the display - it's red/black monochrome, and the covers might look a little more "true" if we weight a little more in favor of red when processing the input.
22:02:50amiconnI'm not sure - most of our grey/mono targets have non-white backlight

22:04:51 Join ender` [0] (
22:05:36gartral1the sim was designed to represent the color of the LCD, not backlight
22:05:54amiconnThe m:robe sim colours are pretty bad, actually. All other grey/mono targets use pure black for black, the m:robe sim used dark red, probably to make it look more similar to the real target
22:06:41amiconnHowever, this leads to the impression of a very low contrast, due to the different characteristics of PC screens and target lcds
22:06:46gartral1yea, and general color representation isnt right for color targets either
22:07:38gartral1colors are compiled in 16 bit, then displayed in 24 bit in the sims it seems

22:42:30gartral1idk... its just what gimp says it can do...
22:43:00amiconnUnhelpful: Btw, if code + bss don't fit in the plugin buffer on SH1, there's still the overlay loader solution. Doesn't matter much since we need to stop playback anyway. That said, SH1 code is usually more compact than arm code
22:43:06Unhelpfulas far as resolution goes, largest size you intend to use is best, as the downscaler produces better results than the upscaler. largest that can fit on screen is fine for portrait targets, i doubt you'd have room for anything else on landscape.

23:26:01kugelZagor: do you know the gpio pin for usb?
23:26:31ZagorI figure we can use the "power connected" status
23:26:40kugeldual-booting is done in a "pre-bootloader" stage (so it loads either the OF or our bootloader), and the code for that is in rbutil/mkamsboot/dualboot.S
23:27:42kugelZagor: see the TODO my patch added in r19575 ;)

23:33:03kugelreading RockRabbit's post again, c200v2 is definitely also using the backlight driver as sansav1/ams sansa/sa9200 do
23:34:37advcomp2019i see someone has opened a v2 clip i think but i am not sure on photos yet
23:35:14kugelZagor: do you want usb detection for dualboot or for the bootloader
23:35:33Zagorkugel: dualboot for now
23:35:52Zagorjust to avoid having to hold the button every time
23:36:23kugelZagor: it seems it's supposed to trigger on USB already
23:36:50kugelah, wait, I got it wrong

23:43:37amiconnUnhelpful: I wouldn't assume this. Other pluginlib modules usually maintain their own copy and provide an init function that must be called first.
