00:04:39linuxstbjhMikeS: beastpatcher has the bootloader.bin embedded in it (similar to ipodpatcher and sansapatcher), and it creates the single-boot nk.bin on the fly. You just run it without any parameters and confirm at the prompt.
00:04:57jhMikeSah, neat.
00:05:57toffe82linuxstb: yesterday I tried it on linux and it was not working, did you make any changes ?
00:06:24linuxstbNot knowingly... Was that before or after I committed the windows changes?
00:06:47toffe82I think before, it was yestrerday morning
00:07:03linuxstbWhat happened when you ran it?
00:07:09toffe82the player ends up with a screen error 3 needs to reload firmware
00:07:16 Part captainkwel
00:07:24toffe82I try it with OF 1.1 and 1.2
00:07:38linuxstbSo the upload appears to work, but then the firmware is rejected?
00:07:45toffe82beastpatcher was saying upload ok
00:08:36linuxstbDoes your beast accept a single-boot bootloader with sendfirm?
00:08:54toffe82I didn;t try it
00:09:01 Join donald [0] (
00:09:09linuxstbSo you reinstalled a dual-boot bootloader?
00:09:40toffe82rockbox is not installed, it is a "brand new second hand" that I never used
00:10:09toffe82I will try to installed with sendfirm
00:10:16donaldhi there
00:10:25jhMikeSlinuxstb: Just have MTP_DLL.dll in the same dir and an OF nk.bin and run it?
00:10:40toffe82but the usb connection is ok as I can upfate with the OF updater

00:23:18linuxstbThat <unknown> message is expected - MTP_DLL.dll doesn't expose the device model name etc

00:23:43linuxstbYes, that's all it does at the moment.
00:24:04 Quit Zagor ("Clint excited")

00:31:34jhMikeSactually, then it would be kind of neat if it had the functionality of mknkboot in there as well
00:31:47linuxstbYes, that's on the to-do list.

00:50:14jhMikeSIt did that after clicking "cancel"
00:50:17linuxstbAfter you press i, the "send_fw" function in MTP_DLL.dll is called, which find the beast, uploads the firmware, then closes. So I'm wondering where in that process it happened.

02:19:02jhMikeS*upgraded to rockbox* of course
02:19:35linuxstbNo, I was just wondering if anyone had succeeded on 1.2
02:21:12linuxstbToshiba kept the v1.2 update very well hidden, so I'm just thinking that maybe no-one has tried it until toffe82 found it...
02:24:04jhMikeSI seem to recall that when he tried it (isn't that the firmware upgrade he found?), he succeeded using dual boot but not single boot and that's why I asked him if it ever worked as single boot before that upgrade but no answer on that.

03:05:45Unhelpfulhere, i think, is what i'm going to do with pictureflow. the only think synchronized between threads will be the album index. the "loader" thread will start at the center, and try to load as many slides to each side of it as possible. it will try to use rb->bufalloc to get the memory first, and then fall back to allocating from the plugin buffer if that fails. if the cache table is full, or bufalloc fails and the plugin buffer is full,
03:05:45Unhelpfulit will free the farthest cache entry from the current center.

12:24:59LloreanI meant, for example, writing debug code to determine where in the codec failure occurs.
12:25:37LloreanAnd, to clarify, when asking about it you should ask about "Rockbox for (player name)". Rockbox v2 sounds like you're asking about the v2 release of Rockbox from ages upon ages ago.
12:25:48Virtualdistanceim checking if some other codec is similiar.
12:26:13linuxstbVirtualdistance: The problem is likely to not be in the specific ".codec" file, but somewhere in Rockbox itself.
12:26:32linuxstbThe .codec files are generic code, which work fine on all other targets.

12:48:15pixelmaI'm currently looking at the invadrox graphics and adaptation to the small screens. Currently it uses one big bitmap which contains all needed graphics + a lot of defines in absolute pixels that help divide the bitmap into the needed parts later. IMO it would be better to split that up into a few bitmap (strips where possible) so that it can get the dimension defines from the bitmaps.
12:48:15pixelmaThis will help simplifying the code and make it more flexible if one wants to invent a new size but the number of bitmaps in the source will increase (I think it needs 9 instead of 1 - unfortunately 4 of them would be "single" bitmaps - for each of the currently 2 different sizes and I'll probably draw 1 more size). I'd like to have some opinions beforehand, or other ideas...

12:56:28pixelmamaybe you could save some bitmaps by using a "real" font and not own bitmaps for it bit that would only be possible (without disturbing too much) if the plugin could chose that one itself, e.g. the current small version uses bitmaps which are 5 pixels tall for the numbers

16:55:25LloreanOkay, just to summarize, discussion has once again broken out about the idea of any filetype Rockbox shows in "supported" mode being in playlists and running with the appropriate viewer (or core action, in the case of .cfg etc) when they're reached in the playlist
16:55:54LloreanThis would, of course, allow one to shuffle in a selection of themes with their random playlist so that their theme changes as they listen, or playlist up several videos, etc.
16:56:03kadobanthat would be cool for goban plugin too, for doing go problems
16:56:33evilnick_6Llorean: Would there be a way to specify "choose a random .wps for each file in this shuffled playlist"?
16:57:09Lloreanevilnick_6: No. It would just be a playlist where some of the files were theme.cfg instead of song.mp3, so when you hit that file in the playlist it changes themes.
16:57:13LloreanIt works for a variety of things
16:57:36LloreanFor example, with unshuffled playlists, you could have it start crossfeed before certain albums mastered in a way that essentially needs it, and disable after.
17:00:38linuxstbWouldn't having per-track/per-album .cfg files (e.g. named using a similar method to AA) be more useful? That's often been requested.
17:01:08LloreanMore useful within that one context, sure.
17:01:30gevaertsThat's a lot less flexible. With any-supported-item playlists you can do things like video playlists, or alternating video/audio
17:01:38LloreanBut that wouldn't allow playlisting of videos or other things you could do with the flexibility.
17:02:00*Llorean thinks many people might want to throw music videos into their playlist.
17:02:55linuxstbgevaerts: But that's also more inconvenient for this example - the user would have to create playlists, and add the cfg to every playlist with specific albums/tracks.
17:03:32LloreanIf you "Insert" the folder, it could insert the .cfg file in that folder too.
17:03:58 Join flydutch [0] (
17:04:01linuxstbYes, but that needs care to make sure it's added in the right place.
17:04:08gevaertsThis won't work well with shuffle
17:04:32*gevaerts thinks that maybe both features should be considered as separate things
17:05:09LloreanBoth features can be considered separately I'm sure.
17:05:49LloreanI just think "deal with any file being in a playlist" would add an awful lot of interesting (in a positive way) behaviour. though there'd be kinks to work out with insertion
17:05:55 Quit Zagor ("Client exiting")
17:06:12gevaertsSure. I want it!
17:06:22*gevaerts doesn't care much about per-album settings
17:07:30LloreanFor me the "ideal" insertion strategy would be inserting the same files we do currently in every situation except manual insertion of a single file. Not ideal for creating non-music playlists, but at least it means nobody gets unexpected behaviour from all the new 'legal' filetypes
17:09:08kadobanwhat about inserting a directory with no audio files in it? that seems like it could add all supported files
17:10:42 Quit SirFunk (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
17:11:04LloreanWell, if we leave that sort of thing off, maybe someone will finally put together a multiple-selections tool for the UI so you can manually insert multiple single-files quickly. :-P

22:07:20saratogaalso, do we really want problems with accessories on the tracker? isn't the problem that the protocols aren't implemented?
22:07:48saratogai think the wiki makes more sense for lists of what devices work and which do not
22:08:25kugelwell, it's in svn, so bug reports are appropriate, imo

22:12:33LloreanSo we just don't take bug reports against the protocol period?
22:12:35saratogawell Llorean started it, sicne I've been closing bug reports on the tracker
22:12:52DaveWoyciesjesWiki page is good to see if a device works or not. But if you want an answer as to if it could work, or may be worked on, a bug submission is the way to go.
22:12:53saratogawell unless someone can provide useful information about why it doesn't work, what good is it?
22:13:11saratogawe don't even know if these devices fail due to unsupported protocols or bugs in our code
22:13:13Lloreansaratoga: Well, it gives the interested developer an easy and direct way to get in contact with someone who has affected hardware.
22:13:16rasherA developer wanting to see what works and what doesn't would probably also benefit more from a wikipage
22:13:25kugelsaratoga: I'm a little bit more successful I think, but it aborts too somewhere at binutils
22:13:39saratogakugel: you mean compiling binutils?

22:13:59saratogakugel: I could build everything, just rockbox wouldn't make

22:15:33saratogaI see no point in having people test fixes
22:15:41saratogawho ever has the fix can simply commit it when its done
22:16:00DaveWoyciesjesIf a developer contacts me about testing something to get Rockbox to work with my FM/RDS transmitter, I'm more than happy to help.
22:16:08saratogasure but no one is going to do that
22:16:30Lloreansaratoga: I disagree
22:16:39kugelsaratoga: I guess I need to install binutils for my system before compiling it for arm?
22:16:51LloreanLook at the original Protocol patch to see a lot of feedback from people regarding whether the differing baud rates worked, etc.
22:17:03kugelI mean a newer version, I'm still on the intrepid packages(which is 2.18 I think)

22:17:19DaveWoyciesjessaratoga: Why not? If I was a developer, and had time/inclination to fix the software, but not the hardware, I would contact people who do have the hardware.

22:21:20linuxstbI agree a ist of willing testers would be useful - there are literally thouands of different ipod accessories, no-one can own them all...
22:21:31gevaertsDaveWoyciesjes: I have a hard time imagining how a developer can find a bug that only happens with your setup, especially if this "bug" is a caused by incomplete understanding of the protocol
22:21:36rasherThat could happen in the wiki as well though
22:21:44Lloreanlinuxstb: The question is more "do we accept bug reports against IAP or ask them just to put 'doesn't work' in the table?"
22:21:52rasher"accessory | works/doesn't work | List of owners"
22:22:24rasherLlorean: "Put doesn't work - and your wikiname - in the table"?
22:22:28linuxstbI can't see the harm in having a list of users willing to test things...
22:22:42DaveWoyciesjesgevaerts: Yes, if it is only in my setup. BUt I suspect that anyone with the same Xmit has the same issue.
22:22:50LloreanI just don't think the wiki is the best place for this, over all.
22:23:04LloreanI don't think we need one bug report for every device.
22:23:08gevaertsDaveWoyciesjes: yes, but this hypothetical developer doesn't
22:23:08rasherlinuxstb: But why have that list in Flyspray - you'd have a hundred "Accessory X doesn't work" reports
22:23:23DaveWoyciesjesLlorean: THe Wiki is good for what it has now. Acc name, and status of what works/doesn't work.
22:23:28LloreanBut possibly a single bug report for "Incomplete IAP" to which people can add their comments after adding to the wiki table, so that people can 'subscribe' to updates...
22:23:30linuxstbrasher: I assumed it would be a wiki page... I haven't read the full backlog.
22:23:47saratogalinuxstb: no the argument was for filespray tasks for each device
22:23:53DaveWoyciesjesgevaerts: THen he can contact me for more info.
22:24:15rasherLlorean: What's the issue with having it in the wiki?
22:24:17Lloreanrasher: The problem with the wiki is that it's one-way for most people. Flyspray mails out updates for you.
22:24:19linuxstbsaratoga: Then I think that's just pointless, unless someone is actively working on one, and they post a patch to start the task.
22:24:39rasherLlorean: Sure, once you start working on something, open a flyspray task with a patch and tell people to test it and report back
22:24:42Lloreansaratoga: The argument was for A FLYSPRAY TASK
22:24:45gevaertsDaveWoyciesjes: what sort of info? This isn't the sort of thing you can easily work on by email...
22:24:57*linuxstb guesses he should probably read the backlog...
22:25:00Lloreanrasher: How do you get word out to people with the broken accessory that they need to test it?
22:25:12rasherContact them...
22:25:19LloreanI think a single flyspray task that these people can subscribe two, and a later patch can be put on, would be easiest.

22:26:43LloreanThey put their devices not working in the table, they add a comment to the Flyspray task with the non-working device or simply click "Watch" and when someone finds out more about IAP they post a patch to that task, everyone with unworking devices immediately gets an email, hopefully some of them try it and then update the wiki page.
22:26:54LloreanIt greatly increases the odds.

22:30:50DaveWoyciesjessaratoga: Understand. I still don't like irritating people for no reason.
22:31:04LloreanI definitely didn't intend for a whole bunch of tasks in the tracker, but I think the wiki-page is more or less just "file and forget", nobody's going to make the effort to get in contact with everyone on it to find out if IAP improvements help their individual case.
22:31:41DaveWoyciesjessaratoga: If I knew where to start, I would get working on it. :) But alas, I'm not a software programmer, just a support tech. :)
22:32:05evilnick_6Perhaps form a sub-group of the Wiki users with members that have issues with the IAP? Send an update and request a re-test when there has been progress?
22:32:06LloreanDaveWoyciesjes: Well, it could be months or years before someone fixes your problem. Learning to program in your spare time can take less than that. :-P

22:32:34saratogaok i'll open a task now for it
22:32:40DaveWoyciesjeslinuxstb: Yes, a generic transmitter would work, but the one I have has better sound quality because it takes the line-level output from the iPod.
22:32:46Lloreanrasher: At the time I suggested he post to the tracker I was thinking "The wiki page isn't good enough" not "how do we handle it well in the tracker." =/

23:01:54gevaertsBefore we can enable USB on PP5022 by default, I think we need to think about several things

23:02:42Lloreanrasher: Fortunately, they're all pretty easy to deal with re: bootloaders
23:03:00gevaerts(b) we need to know how itunes reacts to rockbox UMS, and if it doesn't like it we need to decide how to deal with it

23:11:26gevaertsSo we need someone with itunes...
23:11:54*krazykit quietly raises his hand and has a nano and itunes
23:12:45krazykiti can take a look at it in a couple hours
23:12:59kugellol, they indeed released a broken binutils
23:13:05krazykiti'll have to install rockbox first ;)
23:13:38Bagderkugel: projects releasing with bugs is not that unheard of
23:14:04rasherThe patch looks like a botched copy/paste job or last-minute changes
23:14:09 Quit evilnick_6 (" ajax IRC Client")
23:15:17Bagderor rather it didn't build with a particular gcc version
23:15:50kugelso, binutils compiled now
23:15:59kugelbut not gcc :(

23:27:13amiconngevaerts: I get rather interesting results from a speed comparison of pre-r20098 vs. post-r20098
23:27:43amiconnRead speed is essentially unchanged (even a bit slower now), write speed is noticeably higher
23:28:22gevaertsread speed shouldn't be affected
23:29:03amiconnI get 5.8MB/s read (raw device) for internal and external. Got 6.0MB/s with pre-r20098 and external though
23:29:14midgeygevaerts: just tested my 4G with the usb stack
23:29:46amiconnWrite speed increased from 2.2MB/s to 2.4MB/s internal, and 2.9MB/s to 3.5MB/s for my microsdhc 8GB
23:30:09amiconnThis was measured using file writing, unlike read speed measurement
23:30:18midgeyI have a 4G with OF version 3.0.2, Macbook 4,1 running OS X 10.5.6 and iTunes 8.0.2
23:30:35gevaertsamiconn: write speed should higher. It basically uses a double-buffering system so it can write one buffer to flash while receiving the next one over USB
23:30:49gevaertsmidgey: great! Always nice to get results
23:31:00midgeyplugging in the ipod with the Rockbox stack enabled, it is successfully "recognized" as an iPod by the OS
23:31:18midgeythat is, it is recognized as and iPod and gets a custom icon
23:32:07midgeyadditionally, my app detected it as an iPod (didn't try updating track submissions or anything)
23:32:28midgeyiTunes 8.0.2 gives no indication that an iPod is connected
23:32:37*amiconn notices that the macro was called serialize_*WRITES*

23:34:19gevaertsmidgey: that sounds good. So everything works, and itunes doesn't try to break things
23:35:20midgeyseems that way
23:35:54gevaertsMaybe we want a setting on ipods for itunes users to keep the old way, but I'd prefer not to do that
23:35:55midgeySongbird 1.0 doesn't seem to do anything either, but I've never tried their device support
23:35:58LloreanBut you can't sync within iTunes?
23:36:19Lloreangevaerts: Nah, no setting.
23:36:29midgeywell, I put the music on this iPod using foobar
23:36:43LloreanDual boot is still available, and maybe we can convince some people to send more angry emails to Apple asking them to support UMS devices.
23:36:51midgeysince it support a custom file structure
23:37:26midgeysomeone who is using iTunes to actually sync is probably needed to see if their iPod is detected
23:39:06gevaertsprobably. I guess we also need both mac and windows itunes users
23:39:24 Quit t0mas ("end of day.. bed time :-)")
23:39:37rasherFor the record: a current (r20098) bootloader with USE_ROCKBOX_USB defined works on my Sansa e280. Booting with/without sd card, booting with/without USB, booting with/without |<< pressed (to boot OF), booting with/without rockbox.mi4 present. I think I've tried most useful combinations of these.
23:39:44Lloreanmidgey: No matter what your file structure, the iPod should still show up in iTunes though
23:39:51krazykitfor syncing, i can test that. i think the nano at home is hooked into itunes
23:40:21rasherLlorean: Why? If iTunes decides "that doesn't quite look like an iPod", it might well just ignore it completely?
23:40:25midgeyLlorean: the iTunesDB is hacked, later versions of iTunes don't like it, but it does show up in the OF
23:42:47amiconnHmm. Our drivers sure need improvement
23:43:33kugelrasher: I know :)
23:43:48kugelI mean the bootloader
23:44:18kugelit's apparently prepared for USB, the boot of if USB part is #ifndef'd
23:44:38rasherAh.. Yes. I really think releasing with USB enabled for these targets without also releasing a bootloader that doesn't boot to OF would be really silly.
23:44:47amiconniPod Mini G2, R/W speed: Rockbox USB 3.2/2.7MB/s, Diskmode 15.0/4.2MB/s
23:44:58amiconn(this is with 32GB CF)
23:46:00kugelamiconn: btw, the patch applies without problems
23:46:06kugelthe gcc one, that is
23:46:46*amiconn guesses ATA DMA is the key
23:46:48rockoFOR REAL
23:50:12gevaertsamiconn: that's a big difference. I've noticed that my CF mini is a lot slower than my c250, but I didn't compare with the OF
23:50:34amiconnJust put it into diskmode and compare
23:51:02amiconnI also compared diskmode and OF - they have identical USB transfer speed
23:51:12amiconn(unlike on Nano and Video)
23:52:17Lloreanrasher: Well, iTunes traditionally just rebuilds bad filesystems.
23:52:24LloreanRebuilds missing files, etc.
23:52:56rasherLlorean: But if it decided that it's not an iPod at all, wouldn't it just ignore it?
23:53:19rasherSame as it ignore other MSC devices
23:54:54linuxstbBut doesn't Rockbox use the original USB IDs?
23:55:17rasherSure, but it could base that decision on other facts. Lack of response to the SCSI stuff being an obvoius one
23:56:44midgeyEnabling "Start iTunes when this iPod connects" made no difference. iTunes didn't open up at all
23:56:55linuxstbYes, I'm sure it will use the scsi identify thing - that returns exactly what ipod it is, what firmware it's running, what audio codecs it supports, etc... (could be fun to hack...)
23:57:09rasherThat seems ideal, for us
23:57:31rasherAs long as we don't want to try pretending to work like an iPod
23:58:28midgeyheh, I'd like to see an iriver sync up in iTunes :P
23:58:29linuxstbI can imagine any Rockbox user still using itunes would want that though.
23:58:47linuxstbAnd yes, if we implement it for ipods...
