#rockbox log for 2009-01-03

00:00:14amiconnCPU performance varies linear with clock. As long as core voltage is constant, power consumption (of the core) also varies linear with clock. So in this case it doesn't matter whether we're switching between 2 speeds (say 30 and 80MHz) to achieve an effective speed of 50MHz, or whether we're running at a constant 50MHz (for this task)
00:00:16Roxiboxiother players seem to work fine. this is for a blind user..
00:01:19Zagoramiconn: that does not answer my question
00:01:41amiconnBut as soon as variable core voltage is introduced into the mix, this no longer applies. Power consumption then varies (approximately) quadratic depending on clock, meaning that the 2-point switching becomes less power efficient than using the optimal clock for the current load

00:01:46domonokyRoxiboxi: you are sure you used the correct voice file ?
00:02:06Roxiboxilets see..
00:02:11Roxiboxihe has a standard.

00:02:32Roxiboxibut am not sure if 8 mb or not, but I think not..
00:02:51Roxiboxiprior versions all work well.
00:02:56Zagorright, so we don't need it. we want it. there is a big difference.
00:03:00Roxiboxiupto the 2.4.1
00:03:15Roxiboxioops.. 2.5.1
00:03:29amiconnZagor: The i.MX31 does have variable core voltage, and I sincerely doubt we can beat or even get close to OF runtime without making use of it
00:03:53domonokyRoxiboxi: 2.5.1 is very, very old.. the voice system changed since then... (voice files are now different on different targets)
00:03:58 Quit fenugrec ("Leaving")
00:04:27amiconnOf course 2-step variation would be better than the current fixed clock, as an intermediate solution
00:04:45domonokyRoxiboxi: make sure you have the right "english.voice" (recorder or recoder fm) and the language in rockbox is really set to english.
00:04:57 Join Nibbl [0] (
00:05:04Roxiboxiyes I know that. we used daily builts for some time, but wanted to go over to the definite 3.1 when we read i was out.
00:05:09Zagoramiconn: of course. I'm just pointing out that saying "we need to do X on target Y" without further details in a technical discussion implies there is some technical limitation that makes us really have to do X. not just that X is the better choice.

00:09:01casainhoBagder: the problem were on bootloader linker script, I weren't adding the COMMON bss section, so, it were just zeroing some sections and not the COMMON :-)
00:09:03ZagorRoxiboxi: longer runtime on the 8MB version

00:11:08Roxiboxiwell but I did all the same way as for other versions, even uninstalled rockbox completely, and then enabled the english language, which it will do by default anyway.. but still no luc...
00:12:01Roxiboxiguess we will have to revert to2.5.1 or somethiing.. cause a speaking player is better thn nothing at all for the time being...
00:12:08casainhoI will update wiki page, the status of the port, next task is to put LCD working, however, I don't have it attached yet to development board, other developer is designing the board, we should get it soon :-)
00:12:34domonokyRoxiboxi: try 3.0 or a daily before switiching back to a many year old build.
00:12:46dionoeahehe nice idea in the forum: porting rockbox to a digital picture frame (with speakers). Not really portable but cool enough ;)
00:13:20Roxiboxihmm lets see if that will work...
00:15:06gileshi quick question on ipod video 60Gb if anyone's interested? bought one from ebay - it had a prob so sent it back - it looks like the guy replaced the board with a 30Gb one since 60Gb version of rockbox crashes playing flacs, I now use the 30Gb rockbox version and it seem to work OK but will this cause a problem at all?
00:15:09*amiconn thinks the official 3.1 recorder voice file is too big, especially with the silly default for 'max files in directory'
00:15:52amiconnI have a free buffer of 1.26MB on my recorder, and I've lowered mentioned setting to 300 (default is 1000 - used to be 400 in old versions)
00:15:59*domonoky thinks our voice system could need some love to handle errors with voice (wrong version, to big file, outdated voice file, etc)
00:16:06amiconnAnd the voice file for recorder has a size of 1.26MB ...
00:17:00Bagderwe should just lower 1000 to 400 on lowmem targets
00:17:31amiconnBagder: In fact there already is an exception: For 1MB targets the default is 200
00:18:08amiconndomonoky: How do you think that could be handled? I don't think it even can be handled using voice
00:18:09Bagderit feels reasonable to me to have it different depending on ram size
00:18:31Zagoramiconn: that should be removed, along with all <2MB-specific code
00:19:08domonokyamiconn: might be difficult with voice (perhaps a constant error voice at the beginning) but at least a spash or debug menu entry with the error would be nice.
00:20:13amiconnWell, a few error clips could perhaps be included as .talk clips (always english)
00:20:42domonokyoutdated voice files are especially difficult as there are no versions for this in place at moment :-)
00:20:49amiconnThis would be similar to the fact that .lng file problems can also only be reported in english, font problems can only be reported using the sysfont etc
00:20:58Roxiboxiok this is getting interesting now..
00:21:49Roxiboxicould somebody please walk me through setting the levels to something low for that recorder, before I try out the 3.0? but in PM, otherwise the entries will mess up everything here, since I do not hae enough sight...
00:22:01amiconndomonoky: I thought voice files were versioned (same version as .lng files). But if not, this should of course be fixed
00:23:13domonokyamiconn: as far as i know, it doesnt have any version ( i researched it some day to see if i could let rbutil warn about a outdated voice file)

00:41:52Zagoramiconn: what happens if you try "hot setting" CPUDIV for example?
00:41:53kugelgiles: actually, you wouldn't notice the difference, unless you do a battery bench (less RAM means more disk spin-ups for rebuffering audio data, and thus less battery life time)

00:46:14Zagoramiconn: is both VCOOUT and CPUDIV post-pll? the user manual isn't very clear on that. have you tried ignoring the bypass bit requirement and change those anyway?
00:47:05amiconnYes, they're both post-pll. And no, I didn't try it
00:47:19kugelUnhelpful: I didn't say it negligible, but he wouldn't notice it until he runs a battery bench and compares against a 64MB unit

00:49:30Unhelpfulwait a sec, i think you might need to change more than just BM_MAX_WIDTH to go back to chunked reads in the unscaled path
00:49:35kugeloh, and boot time is significantly increased
00:51:06amiconnZagor: I guess that switching the dividers without switching to bypass first isn't guaranteed to be glitch-free
00:51:14Unhelpfulpart of that change, which i forgot about, is not checking for end-of-buffer while outputting a line in the unscaled path, since it's always supposed to be a whole line

01:33:29kugelso that LCD_HEIGHT-1 and _WIDTH-1 everywhere is normal?
01:36:24amiconnSure, as coordinates are 0-based
01:36:51amiconnIn fact this even looks similar to the well-known HD66789R, but there are some differences
01:41:53kugelah right
01:44:17kugelI'd really like to see if the e200v2 has similar issues

02:32:03Unhelpfulit seems more likely than an LCD driver bug, unless the LCD driver was somehow overwriting data in the framebuffer.
02:32:19Unhelpfulthe fact that changing the read size hides the glitch also suggests a storage bug.
02:34:26Unhelpfulbecause that's all the patch changes - data is processed exactly the same way, but the patch reads enough data for 8 pixels at a time from disk, while unpatched reads a whole line of the bitmap at a time
02:34:57Unhelpfulit might be worth seeing if you can increase BM_MAX_WIDTH just a little to trigger it again - the icons that were wrong suggest that it won't take much.

03:06:18saratogaZagor: lack of boosting shouldn't lag an e200
03:06:24kugelUnhelpful: I'm doing a additional test on the microsd
03:06:50saratogawe basically never boost in SVN for mp3 or flac and those do not lag
03:06:52kugelsaratoga: but maybe locks due to the act of boosting
03:07:13kugelfact is, that with watermark, more little boosts happen
03:07:17_Auron_kugel: I have a sansa e200v2
03:07:18saratogaif your patch introduces lagging its probably an issue with scheduling not boosting

03:14:34kugelI'll try again, to be sure
03:15:08Unhelpfuli wonder how hard it would be to change the read and write sizes in test_disk... if it wouldn't be hard taking them down very low, we could see if smaller reads "fix" it there, too
03:15:34kugelUnhelpful: ah, it seems I did something wrong#

03:17:48_Auron_what do I need to get rockbox on the v2?
03:18:08saratogaBagder: [reading the logs] the two level boost idea makes some sense on CF I think
03:18:24NJoinDieterbe [0] (
03:18:36saratogawe could basically set the normal clock == idle clock, and boost to the present normal clock on GUI use
03:18:36Unhelpfulwell, if reads need to be a certain "magic size" to trigger the bug, that might be helpful in figuring out what it is
03:18:48saratogathen low PCM buffer would use the 124mhz boost
03:18:48_Auron_"tools/configure" ...
03:19:13saratogathis would actually save a fair amount of power on CF, since mp3 and several other formats need no where near 45mhz for real time decode
03:19:51saratogamp3 users would get at least a couple extra hours as I recall based on the power measaurements in the wiki and codec benchmark page
03:20:06kugelamiconn: is test disk not boosting?

03:21:46saratogaso it may not be useful on PP if microboosting can be done like amiconn proposes

11:42:30pepperjackyeah its installed and in my PATH already... im just slow today
11:43:35amiconnJdGordon: Current SVN is unusable on any flashed archos, because updating the flash is impossible
11:43:59Unhelpfulbmp.c builds in pluginlib, as well
11:44:03amiconnrockbox_flash doesn't work. It exits immediately, and I'm 99% sure this is due to r19622

11:44:32Unhelpfulprobably have a working greylib scaler test for m:robe100 before much longer
11:45:19amiconnYeah, I know... somehow I'm often too lazy to use the tracker :\ The fact that the tracker is really slow here doesn't make it better...
11:46:16n1sJdGordon: I can reproduce 9750, you need to use a wps that enables the statusbar of course
11:47:21JdGordonn1s: ah yes.. was trying every theme on my h300 and the only one which does this is the real default :/
11:48:06n1shmm, and after changing theme it takes a while before the statusbar is updated, most noticable if the background changed although not a big problem it looks a little bad
11:49:48Unhelpfulamiconn: think it's reasonable that the pluginlib bitmap loader doesn't support native output at all? scaled output to mono is fairly worthless, unscaled output to mono can be done through the core loader. the pluginlib one is only there to use with the scaler, pretty much.
11:50:37JdGordonamiconn: firmware_flash.c?
11:51:02amiconnJdGordon: rockbox_flash.c and firmware_flash.c
11:52:12amiconnThe former is used far more often than the latter. rockbox_flash is the updater that you run every time for a new .ucl, firmware_flash is the first-time flasher which you only need to use once (and optionally again if a new flash package is released)
11:53:07amiconnI tried to understand what happens, but somehow couldn't? Is the new SYS_ message sent *always*? And if so, where does that happen?
11:53:47JdGordonyes, the new SYS_EVENT is always sent.... if there is a better way to do it im open to ideas... i tried to get ideas for th epast 2 weeks...
11:53:51amiconnI think that ignoring a few more SYS_ messages in the mentioned plugins would be good, although probably not all of them should be ignored

11:57:31amiconnfirmware_flash obviously needs the same fix. The button handling in those plugins isn't that great in general, but one needs to be careful when hacking them
11:58:30JdGordonall 3 of those _flash.c get the same fix
11:58:43JdGordonI'm pretty sure these are the last introduced bugs
12:01:01amiconnAh, didn't know iriver_flash was basically cloned from the archos flash plugins
12:01:54amiconnWell, there's still the strange statusbar delay, and the missing status bar in plugins using the core menu routines
12:02:33bertrikwho are currently working on the c200v2 port?
12:02:46amiconnIt looks like the stausbar delay has to with forcing an update. It seems to be delayed much longer on non-rtc targets than on rtc targets
12:03:27JdGordonshould I force updates more often?
12:03:38JdGordonit only forces an update when it gets re-enabled

12:04:37amiconnI don't think it should be forced more often in general. It might need to be forced whenever the screen changes

14:00:46n1sright, the modded ondio...
14:02:37*gevaerts thinks that if you mod your player, being expected to build things yourself isn't that high a cost

14:05:56gevaertsamiconn: exactly, and .lng files and plugins are built at the same time, so in practice only sharing of voice files would get broken
14:05:59amiconnThe Ondios are handled a bit special here due to 2 things: (1) They are the *only* targets without backlight, but can be modded to have one. So keeping the backlight API on them means we have less ifdefing overall, at a tiny penalty (some settings fields and function stubs included in the default Ondio builds)
14:06:33*gevaerts forgot about the "only" bit
14:06:41n1sso should backlight_timeout be unconditional?

14:24:44JdGordonI do
14:25:27JdGordonI havnt really looked at a conversion plugin.. but it will basically mean rebuilding a playlist and adding the bookmark... yeah should be possible
14:26:21JdGordonexcept the file offset it used and not the time offset, so it might be very difficult to do automatically

14:32:26gevaertsJdGordon: I use bookmarks in big collections of files, but I usually listen to an entire file at once, so losing the offset within the file wouldn't be a big problem for me. I don't know how typical this is though
14:33:13JdGordonarn't bookmarks more used for remebering the place in a track more than in a playlist? so i guess it would suck if you have lots
14:34:29JdGordonalthough, the benefit of being able to bookmark any playlist should overall make it better
14:34:37gevaertsI think it depends on the files you get. If you have an audiobook as fifteen chapter-sized tracks, losing position within a track is a lot less annoying than if you get one huge file

14:35:48JdGordonactually... hang on.. the offset is probably stored in the current format anyway

15:39:01Jaykaydo these numbers differ in the way of writing or something else in other languages?

20:35:24ZagorUnhelpful: the normal way to conditionally include a source file is to use #ifdefs in SOURCES
20:35:33toffe82I don't think :) I had to make clean before building, and the only build I made before on this system was for an ipod, in a different folder
20:36:40UnhelpfulZagor: i know about that, but i didn't think i could put these files in SOURCES, since the object is to go in one subdir and the source to come from another
20:37:05Zagortoffe82: yes I saw that. I have no idea really but naturally am a bit skeptic that it is a bug in the build system. after all it works perfectly for hundreds of builds every day.
20:37:15toffe82ow I have another error on building sendfirm : sendfile_function line 94, too many arguments
20:37:56toffe82Zagor: I will try with a different build to see if I have the problem
20:38:06Zagortoffe82: flood us with data. what is your system, os, target, ccache version, tried clearing ccache?
20:38:21Unhelpfulwhat i am trying to do is build a core file as part of the pluginlib. the eventual goal is to use this method to support plugins using features disabled in core - primarily so that i can make PF work on mono targets
20:38:39ZagorUnhelpful: right, such fixes need *.make file modification
20:39:00ZagorI'll dig up an example you can look at
20:39:03toffe82Zagor: ubuntu 8.10 gigabeat S , where can I see ccache ?
20:39:06Unhelpfulso, a custom rule for each such object is probably the right way?
20:39:15ZagorUnhelpful: yes
20:39:45Unhelpfulthen i think i've pretty much got it, aside from source mods to make the objects function correctly :)
20:40:00toffe82I have to go , be back later
20:40:43Unhelpfulwell, aside from i can't check config flags inside the .make file... so conditional compilation is not quite working
20:41:21ZagorUnhelpful: what is the flag you want to check?
20:41:54Unhelpfulfor the bitmap loader, it will be the value of LCD_DEPTH, since the scaler doesn't build, and the loader builds differently, for mono targets
20:43:25 Join Seed [0] (
20:44:09Unhelpfulonce i've got the scaler test plugin working, i'll need to also build some of albumart.c conditionally on HAVE_ALBUMART
20:45:28ZagorUnhelpful: I think we can do this using a combination of SOURCES and custom rules
20:46:53Unhelpfulthe only issue i see there is that a relative path in SOURCES will add an object in BUILDDIR in the same subdirectory - and that could be a problem, as bmp.c is going to be compiled for both pluginlib and core on mono targets

20:52:02Zagorif I understand what you want, you should be able to do the same thing
20:54:29Unhelpfulit looks like that does what i want
20:57:32Unhelpfulso, basically, the source filename goes in SOURCES, and i add a rule to make a file with that name in the build directory, in my case apps/plugins/lib, and a custom rule making the object depend on that file, as well as one to "create" the source file by copying it from core
20:57:58bertrikCould it be that the wps editor does not support the %V token yet?
20:58:15ZagorUnhelpful: yes, two rules: one for the source file and one for the object file
20:59:00Zagornote that you do not have to specify a command for the object file. it uses the pattern rule defined elsewhere. unless you require special compiler flags, that is.
20:59:08bertrikI'd like to experiment a bit with a WPS for the sansa clip
21:06:22Unhelpfuli'm going to add a -DPLUGINLIB to the special pattern already there for pluginlib objects, because some of the core headers will need to behave differently when building for pluginlib than for plugins, but i don't think the objects will need custom build commands

23:14:23ZagorI don't want to do that. it breaks the dependency chain, which is bound to come back and bite us (me) in the future.
23:15:17ZagorI'm instead looking into creating a macro string that can be used for preprocessing in the makefiles
23:17:51Zagoralthough that has a number of problems too... :-(
23:19:16Zagorperhaps you should solve it in the .c file anyway. it's a bit ugly, but so are the makefile hacks.
23:19:21Unhelpfuldoes it break the chain? the rule to generate the "plugin" C file should depend on the "core" C file, and that should cause it to be recopied if any of the core file's deps change, shouldn't it?
23:20:05Zagorthe dependencies are for the .o file, so the copied file cannot inherit them
23:21:08Unhelpfulah... that's no good, then. and here i thought i had it solved. :/
23:21:58Zagorand generally, files present in SOURCES but missing in the directory is a bug that should be warned about. so we'd have to flag these special files somehow (with a macro), which adds all sorts of ugly hacks
23:22:01Unhelpfulwe could depend on the core object file... but that doesn't work, either, since the core object file is possibly not built
23:23:02Zagorthat would work, actually. since this is a single make, adding a dependency to the core file simply means the lib isn't linked until the core file is compiled
23:23:23Unhelpfulwell, i was thinking of a CORESOURCES file, or such, that would use paths relative to the source root... but i suspect implementing that would be a lot of work compared to how often it would be used.
23:23:49Unhelpfulbut, resize.o and albumart.o aren't built in core on the targets where they'd be built in pluginlib.
23:24:13Zagorah, right :(
23:27:25Zagoractually, that could still work. they are excluded from the apps SOURCES, but since they are included in the plugin object list, and added to OTHER_SRC they will be built anyway.
23:27:41Zagorwith full dependencies
23:29:49ZagorOTHER_SRC is a variable used to specify non-core files that should get dependencies generated
23:30:31Zagorsuch as OTHER_SRC += $(PLUGINLIB_SRC)

23:31:02Zagornew doom commit coming up :-)
23:31:15Unhelpfulok, i'll have to see how you do it, i guess.

23:32:20Zagorhmm actually doom won't show that, since it uses a core file that is always compiled
23:34:15 Join ameyer [0] (
23:34:38Unhelpfulalso, resize.o won't compile correctly on mono unless PLUGINLIB is defined :/
23:35:25Zagorahh, there was that too
23:35:54Unhelpfulso, there can't really be even an unused "core" resize.o for those targets :/
23:36:28Zagordoes resize differ between core and pluginlib on color targets?

23:37:59saratogathe sendfirm reports success, but i didn't get a reboot like the instructions say
23:38:02saratogais that normal?

23:42:41ZagorUnhelpful: if the file is always compiled the same way for each target, then that could be handled in the .c code (#if LCD_DEPTH == 2 or similar) rather than with a generic -DPLUGINLIB
23:43:06Zagorin that case simply adding the file like I do in doom should work
23:45:17saratogaif I DD sdb does that refer to just one partition or the entire physical disk?
23:46:11dionoeasdb is the entire physical disk
23:46:16Unhelpfulbmp.c is compiled differently for core vs pluginlib, since the core loader on mono doesn't support resizing at all... but i think it should be safe for it to include resize.h even if resizing is disable, and then the core file will have all the right deps
23:46:21dionoeasdb1 would be one partition

23:51:27UnhelpfulZagor: is that just using the core .c and .o directly? i can *probably* make that work for resize.c... has no htobe16/32, hence causing warnings
23:51:47gevaertsUnhelpful, Zagor: one way to handle this could be a pluginlib .c file that only #includes the core .c file
23:51:48ZagorUnhelpful: yes it is
23:51:54Unhelpfuland bmp.c could depend on the core version
23:52:12Zagorgevaerts: yes, but that is rather ugly too.
23:52:17Unhelpfulon the core object, that is, which would have the same deps as the pluginlib one should have
23:52:42gevaertsZagor: I know, but I think it's better than workarounds within the build system at least
