00:14:29rockboxhello, i was wondering if the rockbox project for the sansa view was still running?
00:17:37LloreanTheSkunkMan: "How" depends entirely on the device. It could be in a hidden partition, it could be written to a ROM elsewhere. It may not be recoverable without taking the player apart.

00:20:00salty-horsehi. here's a small documentation patch to UISIMULATOR (changed "archos" to "simdisk") −−
00:20:53rockboxLlorean: thank you, i will check there
00:20:59Lloreansalty-horse: You should post patches to the patch tracker.

00:21:14tajlerois it possible to use the apple firmware for ipods on ext3 file system instead ?
00:21:17salty-horseLlorean, ok
00:21:34Lloreantajlero: That has nothing to do with Rockbox.

00:24:59tajlerosee well rockbox can not work without apple firmware can it Llorean ?
00:25:26LloreanSure it can.
00:25:28BigBambiyes, it can
00:25:32tajleroit can
00:25:41linuxstbErr, it can't...
00:25:41tajleroso I can reformat my ipod
00:25:55tajleroand just have rockbox on it
00:25:57Lloreanlinuxstb: Well, it can work without any of the on-disk Apple firmware.
00:26:02BigBambilinuxstb: without the 'main firmware' can't it?
00:26:12Lloreanlinuxstb: And the bootloader->firmware partition loading doesn't depend on Filesystem.
00:26:21BigBambii.e. the non in-flash part
00:26:35linuxstbThat's not what either of you said though...
00:26:58LloreanWell, it works without the Apple firmware, just not the Apple Bootloader.
00:27:11tajlerocool Llorean :D
00:27:21LloreanAnd the filesystem in-use is irrelevant to the Apple Bootloader.
00:27:27 Quit TheSkunkMan (Remote closed the connection)
00:27:30LloreanThat being said, Rockbox only works with FAT32
00:27:40tajleroso how can I do it in ext3
00:27:48LloreanWrite an ext3 driver for Rockbox.
00:27:51tajlerothat sucks
00:27:57tajleroFAT32 BLOWS
00:28:14LloreanThere's no need for the additional overhead for MP3 players
00:28:57tajlerofat32 is a slow filesystem though
00:30:57BigBambithis is an mp3 player...
00:31:16LloreanSo what do you need "fast" for?
00:31:20LloreanYou need "minimal RAM footprint"
00:31:44tajlerobecause it gets fragmented really bad
00:31:46tajleroover time
00:31:51tajlerocompared to ext3
00:31:55LloreanFragmentation doesn't happen automatically
00:32:05LloreanIt happens if you *write* often
00:32:08tajleroplease do not use mp3 player
00:32:15tajlerouse media player
00:32:15LloreanLarge-disk MP3 players are, generally, write-once read-often
00:32:32tajlerobut still
00:32:36LloreanThese aren't really media players. They're DAPs. Digital Audio Players
00:32:41LloreanSo your fragmentation concern is not a real issue.
00:32:55tajlerohow so
00:33:06tajlerodo you support the crappy file system
00:33:14LloreanYou won't get a significant amount of fragmentation with the normal usage patterns.
00:33:17BigBambiIf you would like to write an ext3 driver for Rockbox, feel free. The general feeling is that the effort and increased code size and complexity isn't really worth it
00:33:34LloreanIt's an issue of "choose the tools that are right for the job."
00:33:46BigBambitajlero: FAT32 is a) supported on all OS and b) used by all the OFs
00:34:00tajleroI do not care
00:34:02tajleroit sucks
00:34:08LloreanThen don't use Rockbox

00:34:25tajlerodo not say
00:34:28bertrikthe sansa express also seems to use the si4702 fm chip
00:34:31tajleromp3s SUCK
00:35:10kugelbertrik: seems they were on sale :)
00:35:22tajlerowell not all digital audio players would used fat32
00:35:47tajleroplus some hard drives are coming with ntfs filesystem by default now instead of fat32
00:35:54tajlerothe external ones
00:35:57Lloreantajlero: What do non-DAP HDs matter?
00:36:00LloreanRockbox doesn't run on them.
00:36:18tajleroyeah I know I was making a point with something else
00:36:24LloreanSimply put: Rockbox uses FAT32. For what Rockbox needs it makes more sense than any other filesystem. Supporting multiple filesystems creates additional overhead that also doesn't make sense.
00:36:36LloreanIf you don't like this, don't use Rockbox, or use a customized build for which you've written your own filesystem support
00:36:59LloreanYou don't need to make any more points, you don't need to complain further about how much FAT32 sucks. These are your options. Deal with it, or do your own thing.
00:37:07 Quit film42 (Client Quit)
00:37:13tajlerowhy is it not a media player ?
00:37:19tajleroplease explain ?
00:37:31LloreanBecause currently its entirely designed around an audio player interface.
00:37:46LloreanThere's a separate plugin for MPEG1/2 video, but it's not part of Rockbox's core, just a limited plugin
00:37:55tajleroI am talking about the device
00:38:05tajleronot rockbox
00:38:10LloreanThis is #Rockbox
00:38:20LloreanSo we're talking about Rockbox on the device.
00:38:40tajleroso why can't you call it media player instead Llorean

00:39:28LloreanCalling it an MP3 player simplifies discussion because it's a term that the majority of people can associate with it.
00:39:38LloreanCalling it a DAP or media player causes confusion among many people.
00:39:49tajlerowell then
00:39:51LloreanIt's like calling them "kleenexes" even though a more proper term would be "tissues"

00:51:22Unhelpfulpixelma: that's a good argument against extending the version string, perhaps. maybe just add a "m" if it's not a "pure" svn build, and add other info to rockbox-info.txt or to a new build-info.txt?
00:51:25tajleroI hate itunes any ways
00:51:43LloreanUnhelpful: It *should* already add an "m" if it's not clean

00:52:30UnhelpfulLlorean: when we discussed this before, i had though it added some indication, as well... but i couldn't find anything in the source to back up that belief :/
00:53:03BigBambiany mods should have r12345m - in fact sometimes the m appears when it shouldn't
00:53:30LloreanUnhelpful: Well, it *used* to I thought.
00:53:36UnhelpfulBigBambi: perhaps spurious "m" would be due to build files that svn doesn't know to ignore?

00:54:49UnhelpfulLlorean: would you be ok with ajb's patch if it just did a better job of finding the svn revision and working tree status, still used the r12345[m]-DDDDDD version string, and moved other info to either rockbox-info.txt or to a new file for build info?
00:55:49Unhelpfulthat satisfies my desires, which are mostly that 1) the version number works in some cases where it doesn't now and 2) the user can tell a developer of a custom build what they need to know to help.
00:56:28 Quit neddy ("Leaving.")
00:56:32LloreanUnhelpful: I'm satisfied as long as the version string is the same independent of source control method used, really.

00:57:17LloreanWell "independent" meaning "it's the same for all the ones we've added support for"

00:59:29Unhelpfulas i said... i can live with "m" and telling a tester who thinks they got the build from me to look in rockbox-info.txt
00:59:40LloreanI think that's pretty acceptable
00:59:57LloreanI don't think checking the .txt is too much a task, and pastebinning it. You'll probably want to if the [m] is present anyway
01:00:03Unhelpfuland then i can say "that's from a week ago, i fixed your problem since then", or whatever.
01:00:59Unhelpfulthe idea of having a diff-stat of the local changes... is that useful? it gives an idea of where a custom build has changed things, but it doesn't tell a developer anything about what has actually changed, as a bzr or git commit label of some sort would.

01:07:04Unhelpfulbasically, a git user can, for example, make a branch, do some work, cherry-pick an svn revision to the branch without pulling in other new svn revisions, and then do some more work.

01:07:52Unhelpfulthe obvious method of scanning the git log for the newest revision that comes from svn will fail in that case.
01:08:10Unhelpfulworse, the diff will miss their local work that was before the cherry-pick.
01:09:03LloreanDunno then
01:09:03Unhelpfulthe only clean way to handle the situation, as i see it, would be to find the last svn revision which has nothing non-svn after it, and diff vs that.
01:09:40 Quit AndyI ()
01:10:36kugelBagder, Unhelpful: nevermind, make clean helped
01:10:39Unhelpfulbut that would mean scanning the entire log. i think that we should rather expect devs who use git to be sensible - don't cherry-pick from svn, update branches with rebase, not merge or pull, ie , don't do anything that will mix local changes with svn ones.
01:11:16LloreanUnhelpful: I think expecting them to be sensible (and maybe even noting how it can fail somewhere) is reasonable.
01:11:59Unhelpfulactually... i'm not sure that a cherry-picked svn change will still "look" like an svn change. i know that merging from svn instead of rebasing on it will probably fail, though.
01:15:15Unhelpful"merge" basically means "add changes from that branch to this one"... "rebase" is more like "forward-port this branch to the latest version of that one"
01:15:47LloreanSo could you diff against the last rebase? Does that even make sense?
01:16:22LloreanAnd use the SVN revision of the last rebase, too, for that matter?

01:18:39 Join FlynDice [0] (
01:18:50Unhelpfuli think that, under the assumption that the developer is acting sensibly, the best course of action is to find the newest commit with a git-svn-id, use that as the svn revision, and as the "parent" for producing a diff as well.
01:19:31Unhelpfulgit diff can do commit-vs-othercommit or commit-vs-workingtree, just as svn diff can do, so it's really a matter of deciding what to diff against.

02:27:32kugelcommitting is a vc-only thing, i.e. if you change the source, the build is changed, no matter if the changes are committed or not, so M in both cases imo
02:27:55Unhelpfulthe "what others will think" part of that is why i suggested alex ask the ML in the first place :)
02:28:38LloreanI think the difference between M and D will only matter to the host of the repository, and by the time they know what local git ID it came from, they'll know if it was dirty or not by the diff.
02:28:45Unhelpfulkugel: the difference is that in git, "commit" is a local operation, and creates local history, and that you can create a commit ID which the developer can use to "find" that work.
02:29:22kugelyes, but that does hardly matter for the version string
02:30:02kugelrockbox-info.txt will contain more detailed infos (if I got this right now), and developers will always have to look that up, no matter of D or M, not?
02:31:20Unhelpfulit doesn't yet, but i think the "next" step would be to add fields with the git commit-ish, and working tree status, for git repositories.
02:32:20LloreanI think it's best to leave the version number as "simple" as possible. So even casual people who are around to help can see the "M" and know "modified" rather than occasionally seeing "D" and having to ask around further
02:32:33kugelI don't think we need to complicate the version string more if rockbox-info.txt is containing all valuable information
02:32:34LloreanThe less we put in the version number, the better, in my opinion.
02:32:45kugeljust M if it's modified, nothing if unmodified
02:33:18kugeli.e. I agree with Llorean ;)
02:34:18Unhelpfulthe "dirty tree" method as alex has coded it wil not detect the addition of new, untracked files - it will only add an "M" for changes to tracked files. i don't *think* anything in our build system allows for the addition of a new file, without modifications to existing ones, to change the build output
02:35:20Unhelpfulgit-svn does not automatically get svn's ignore props, though, so maybe ignoring new files in the dirty-tree detection is for the best.
02:35:22kugelthat's right

02:36:05kugelthat's why creating a build folder will not cause the addition of M

04:18:00gartralALL i did was change the bootsplash
04:18:02gabe565Try a normal build and see if you're still having the problem
04:18:15LloreanYou compiled it yourself, though. There can be problems with the compiler / compiling environment.
04:18:30gartrali did it from JDs system...
04:19:14LloreanIn the time you've been arguing, you could've downloaded and installed an official build and then proved me wrong, then.
04:19:31gabe565Just try a normal build!!! You can always back up the one you have

04:29:57gartrali KNOW 19777 worked, for a fact
04:30:27gabe565Hmmm, seeing what 19778 changed, it shouldn't have broken it

04:34:50gabe565It's faster to get a daily build than to compile
04:35:25gartrallook above, it really wouldnt matter at the speed AT&T calls "fast"
04:36:10Lloreankadoban: The daily build is only useful for starting points. Several builds happen throughout the day so you can't figure out what specific one it is without compiling for yourself.
04:36:55kadobanLlorean: sorry, 'daily' wasn't supposed to be in that sentence
04:37:34Lloreankadoban: Well, "official builds" without the daily doesn't make too much sense either. What other official builds are there besides the single "current" one and the older "release" one?"> <−− these "old" ones
04:38:43kadobani guess i'm insane, i thought sometihng was there that isn't...i'll stop talking now
04:39:04gartraldont worry, that happens too me alll the time
04:39:57Lloreangartral: Those are *daily* builds.
04:40:04LloreanAs I've already stated, daily isn't ideal for this sort of thing..
04:40:22gartrali know, but there still labeled as "old"
04:40:31LloreanYes, but I asked what builds *other* than the dailies
04:40:38LloreanPointing me right back at the dailies makes no sense as a response to that.
04:41:15gartralive always assumed that "daily" ment the newest build and old were the old dailies

04:46:34gartralwe all get that my misquote meant r19777, right?

10:40:10linuxstbtmzt: As far as I know, dual-boot should be working fine on the Fuze - the risky code is in rbutil/mkamsboot/dualboot.S, which hasn't been touched for weeks.
10:40:55linuxstbBut if it's broken, you can brick your Fuze, so you may want to wait until someone can confirm current SVN is working...
10:40:56tmztso the process is build mkamsboot from svn and use it like rbutil?
10:41:48tmztI'm somewhat concerned about the key problems since they are used to determine which firmware to boot
10:42:31linuxstbYou type "make" in rbutil/mkamsboot, then "mkamsboot <original firmware file> <rockbox bootloader> <output file>" and then copy the output file to your device. "rockbox bootloader" is the bootloader-fuze.sansa file.
10:43:01linuxstbYou then (or even before that) need to install a main Rockbox build.
10:43:33tmztwhat is dbop?
10:45:06linuxstb"Data Block Output Port" - the output port used to communicate with the LCD.
10:45:11bertrikdbop = data block output port, it's an interface to send/receive data from a parallel bus
10:45:25tmztsomething like gpio?
10:45:38bertrikit's used for interfacing the display on the ams sansas
10:47:29bertriktmzt, yes, a bit like that, but it can do parallel data, has a FIFO and is quite configureable to generate control signals
10:48:36tmztok, has anyone here tried this on their fuze (I can repartition if necessary), and what version would they recommend (revision)?

10:59:59kadobanlinuxstb: yeah, i already did that a bit. it's difficult because i definitely need 2 directions of movement and a "fire" button, and a menu button...and it's /quite/ painful if i don't have yet another direction of movement
11:02:23kadobanhow does the off button work in ondio? could i somehow use that for a modifier button (like a shift key), or does it turn off the device if it's help for not a very long time?
11:02:26linuxstbkadoban: Looking at your patch, you don't appear to be using any button combinations - they will help.
11:03:24 Join tessarakt [0] (
11:03:32pixelma4 directions + fire + menu shouldn't be a big problem, there are quite a few plugins already using sonething similar (on Ondio this could be the 4 directions + "short menu" = fire + "long menu" = menu or the "off" button here though I don't like it that much)
11:04:22kadobanlinuxstb: do you know a good example plugin that does that? (if not i can find one or make a test for the logic of combinations)
11:05:21linuxstbMaybe sudoku
11:05:25linuxstbSee sudoku/sudoku.h
11:06:47kadobanlinuxstb: thanks, i'll have a look
11:06:53pixelmathat one doesn't have a nice mapping on the Ipods though (IMO)
11:07:57kadobani /think/ my mapping for the ipod is already okay (i don't own one but i've seen a bunch)
11:08:13linuxstbkadoban: BTW, I've just noticed your files have the old Rockbox (C) header in them. You should update that to the current version, assuming you are happy with the change (basically just clarifiying that the files are GPL v2 or later)
11:08:52pixelmakadoban: the "off" button serves as a hard power off on the Ondio but only when held for a while (I think +8 seconds), some things already use long and short "off", e.g. pause vs. stop in the WPS and it works quite well, I've never powered it off by accident.
11:09:01kadobanlinuxstb: oh, thanks. i hadn't noticed it was updated.
11:09:30linuxstbkadoban: And "//" comments are forbidden, and indenting should be 4 spaces. See docs/CONTRIBUTING for the coding style rules.
11:10:11pixelmabut the "off" button is placed at the top of the unit and isn't well suited as a "modifier" because it's a bit away from the main button pad - the "menu" button is better as a "modifier" there and button combos with it are possible
11:10:13kadobanlinuxstb: hehe, yeah...i have a script to change things to rockbox style but i hate editing in it so i'll do it at the end. i'm using typedefs a lot too which i think i need to fix
11:11:07kadobani could use short off for a menu and then long menu for a modifier i suppose
11:11:25kadoban(short menu has to be "fire" i think)
11:11:39kadobanerr...something like that
11:13:40pixelmadon't you need _PRE conditions when using the same button with BUTTON_REL and BUTTON_REPEAT?

11:18:44kadobanpixelma: oh, that would make sense i think...assuming the "normal" button gets triggered after the _REL

11:21:57linuxstbNo, I'm just talking in general... And some problems seem to be build-server related...
11:23:41Unhelpfulpixelma: coldfire makes it possibly a gcc3-specific problem. i can kill the type-punning warning, but i want to make sure that it really is safe to cast bool* and enum* to int*, and that the warning is truly bogus...
11:25:22linuxstbDon't other plugins use enum/bool settings?
11:26:08Unhelpfullinuxstb: many plugins avoid using configfile, and just write a raw struct out to disk as their config file
11:26:41linuxstbTrue, but some do...
11:26:41Unhelpfuldice.c was the one i looked at, and it uses TYPE_ENUM, but the variable that the config option maps to is an int
11:27:15pixelmakadoban: btw. if you start using combos... there some limitations in which buttons can be combined on some targets (e.g. only combos with "Play" on the H100 (H300 as well?) or basically none on X5/M5)
11:28:20linuxstbMaybe a "TYPE_BOOL" should be added to the configfile lib, to at least keep that clean.
11:28:38kadobanpixelma: i /think/ the only keypad i had a problem with not having enough buttons was the ondio, so hopefully that will be the only one. mrobe 100 i completely guessed on the buttons, but that was just because i don't know the device
11:29:18Unhelpfullinuxstb: probably. the enum situation is a bit trickier... i'm looking for other examples, pacbox has all of its settings as TYPE_ENUM, and they're all ints
11:29:48linuxstbUnhelpful: Yes, I'm looking as well - seems all enum settings are using ints...

11:30:35Unhelpfulreally, i'm not sure how TYPE_ENUM *can* be made to work if you don't assume sizeof(enum) == sizeof(int)

11:32:40Unhelpfulright, but in this case, i'd have to change an existing enum to some #defines
11:33:17linuxstbNo, you can still use an enum. e.g. see the "source" setting in wavrecord.c
11:34:38Unhelpfulthat's exactly what i was doing, but it throws a warning about type-punning on the targets that use gcc3
11:34:49Unhelpfulsame for using TYPE_INT for bool
11:35:07linuxstbNo, I mean you declare the items in an enum, but actually use an int to store them.
11:35:59Unhelpfulohhh.. i see. the bool variables are modified by core menu functions that expect a bool*, so again the assumption of same size comes in...
11:36:23linuxstbA new TYPE_BOOL would seem to be sensible to fix that. I guess no other plugins use bool settings.
11:36:54UnhelpfulPUN_PTR is likely safe for now, i would think?
11:38:56linuxstbI would just keep things simple (and clear) and do what the other plugins do...

11:40:47Unhelpfuli meant for the bools. one of them already has a copy around the set_bool call, to detect change, so i'm making the variables ints, and copying them to bools for set_bool
11:42:19linuxstbI'm not following - are you talking about the current SVN version?
11:43:54Unhelpfulyes. the yellows i recently committed are because of gcc3 throwing a type-punning warning on passing pointers to bool/enum types to configfile.
11:44:17 Join _Auron_ [0] (
11:44:35linuxstbI know, and my suggestions were to implement a TYPE_BOOL for the bools, and to store the enums as ints, the same way as other plugins.
11:44:37Unhelpfuladding a TYPE_BOOL is possibly the right long-term fix, but i don't have time to do that until at least tonight.
11:45:39Unhelpfuli changed the enum to an int. the bool are now int as well, until i have a chance to do something about configfile itself.
11:47:48Unhelpfulhrm, wouldn't adding TYPE_BOOL require adding another pointer to struct configdata?

11:49:47linuxstbI'm just looking at that as well... Maybe a union could be used.
11:50:59Unhelpfulif a union, it could also absorb the char *string member, which would actually make the struct smaller.
11:52:49Unhelpfulan anonymous union could allow the fields to retain their names as they are now on access... but initializers would still need to be treated as unions.

15:36:07PaulJamWhen rockbox crashes while the disk is spinning, does the emergency shutdown of the disk when hard reseting potentially harm the disk? (H300 with MK4007GAL)

15:41:43PaulJamwell, not with the official build. i was testing a patch and was wondering if it is wise to continue testing.
15:47:27mrkikoI think they harm the disk actually...
15:47:51mrkikoPaulJam: try to lissten the "CLICK" the disk does when you reset the player... It doesn't sound good... for me at least.

20:41:29soapOh, I saw the picture.
20:43:15LambdaCalculus37The biggest differences are the LCD (2.4" on the X, 2.2" on the F), a ZIF connector on the hard drive, and the buttons are smaller and further up on the side of the player.

21:45:08*amiconn also wonders how much (or little) testing goes into binutils releases
21:45:26amiconnI mean, if a release doesn't even *build* for arm ...
21:45:58saratogayes that was surprising, although i think the issue is specific to compiling it with gcc 4.3.x

21:49:40Unhelpfullinuxstb: here's what i've come up with, at this point. i'm not even sure it's worth making a FS task for it, there are lots of examples of things that could use TYPE_BOOL using an int and custom menu labels...

22:06:52LambdaCalculus37theone2: Please use a pastebin next time.
22:07:13Unhelpfulit looks like those should later be ported from oldmenuapi, and use set_bool_options?
22:08:38theone2Lambda, sorry, here it is:
22:11:03theone2it seems logf is the problem; the build works if disable it
