#rockbox log for 2009-03-16

00:00:15bluebrotherwell, if you want to do hardware it might be a good idea to talk with the people that do the software. Same the other way round −− the only problem is that commercial hardware companies don't come here ;-)
00:02:25casainhobluebrother: a long time a ago I started writing on Rockbox wiki about the hardware, and I went here asking about it...
00:03:01casainhofor example, I remember that at first times I wanted to use AVR32... and I clear remember Bagder explain why we should use ARM...
00:03:19casainhoI remember and wrote the values of RAM, etc, etc
00:03:21 Quit t0mas ("Leaving")
00:03:47bluebrotherwell, that was hardware talk, was it?
00:04:05Lloreangevaerts: Seen FS10026?
00:04:19bluebrotherpeople working on embedded software need to have knowledge about hardware too −− at least to some degree
00:04:29casainhobluebrother: that was a talk to define the minimum hardware needed to run Rockbox
00:05:02bluebrotherso it's hardware talk.
00:05:04gevaertsLlorean: interesting
00:05:13casainhowell, I wrote all the links to datasheets of every piece of hardware, including application notes with code
00:05:21*bluebrother starts to think this discussion is getting pointless
00:05:22Lloreangevaerts: It's not saratoga's problem, but it's *an* e200 problem.
00:05:26bluebrotherso what?
00:05:37casainhobluebrother: sorry, I may not understand you
00:05:55casainhoplease explain, directly
00:05:56gevaertsLlorean: indeed, and moreover one that I hadn't heard about yet...
00:06:03 Join moos [0] (i=Mustapha@rockbox/staff/moos)
00:06:22bluebrotherwell, talking about hardware is hardware talk, is it?
00:06:22casainhoI am getting this error while building: make: *** Sem regra para processar o alvo `/home/cas/Documentos/rockbox_player/rockbox/build_firmware/apps/=======', necessário por `/home/cas/Documentos/rockbox_player/rockbox/build_firmware/rockbox.elf'. Pare.
00:06:39 Part AlHaz ("Leaving")
00:06:42casainhoyes, no?
00:06:47linuxstbgevaerts: Did you also read Toni's comments here this morning?
00:06:48*bluebrother suggests LANG=C
00:06:54casainhosorry, I don't reallt understand what you mean
00:06:54Lloreangevaerts: It does seem to indicate there are some (further?) differences between Sansa USB and iPod USB
00:07:10bluebrotherSem regra para processar linguas
00:07:28*bluebrother has no idea if that is a valid sentence at all :)
00:07:29linuxstbcasainho: That looks like a conflict in a SOURCES file
00:07:29domonokycasainho: looks like you have a merge conflict in this file...
00:07:48Bagder'svn st' tells you
00:07:56gevaertslinuxstb: I saw it, yes. I wanted to ask saratoga to try it when he has a chance
00:08:04bluebrothercasainho: set the compiler to use english language. At least I don't understand spanish
00:08:05casainhothanks :-) :-)
00:08:24casainhobluebrother: hmmm, I don't know how to do it
00:08:28bluebrotherwhile one can guess the meaning at times it's annoying
00:08:34bluebrotherexport LANG=C
00:08:42gevaertsLlorean: anyway, I'm not convinced that FS #10026 this isn't related to saratoga's problem either
00:08:53casainhobluebrother: so, what do you want to talk about that subject of hardware???
00:09:05Lloreangevaerts: I was gonna say "there's a part of me that really hopes it's just the same problem, manifesting in different ways"
00:09:54bluebrotherwell, right now there is nothing to talk about, as far as I can see.
00:10:11bluebrotherbut if other people have tasks (like creating a patch), why shouldn't they come here?
00:10:42gevaertsLlorean: here too. I know e200 (and to a lesser degree c200) have more retried packets than the ipods and than the OF. I'll check tomorrow if that changes with this patch
00:11:23gevaertsfor some curious reason the ipod 5G EDM also has lots of those, but still less than the e200 running rockbox
00:11:49casainhobluebrother: well, I can say this to Hector... I don't know if he comes here or not. Since he tolds me he builds is own Rockbox source for his Ipod, I hope he is at least familiar iwth rockbox tools... he talked a bit with me about Rockbox tracker...
00:12:30bluebrotherand why does he talk with you instead of the "community"?
00:12:57bluebrotherthat's the thing I really don't get. Why are you working in you "own space" instead of the public?
00:12:59stripwaxfwiw, #10026 doesn't appear to have adverse effects on an ipod 5g
00:13:07 Quit Conic ()
00:13:29bluebrothern1s: FS #10025 would have been a feature request, as far as I understand.
00:14:39casainhobluebrother: well, since begin I didn't saw much interest from others on this project
00:14:46gevaertsstripwax: good to know. I still want to look at what the tracer reports for every single target I have available after changing that though
00:14:56stripwaxmakes sense
00:15:01casainhobluebrother: and we did need our SVN, at least I thought it...
00:15:04n1sbluebrother: yes, that's what i guessed. however being _that_ unclear and just ignoring the guidelines...
00:15:30casainhobluebrother: you know, I am always here getting help... I got a lot of help here!!!
00:16:16gevaertsI mean, using the tracer I can see every single individual error. Without it, it's just statistics. If you happen to have enough in a short time, you see problems. If they happen to be spread out, it works fine
00:16:28casainhobluebrother: and I wasn't seeing using the Rockbox mailing list to comunicate beteewn us, for our project
00:17:02linuxstbbluebrother: Are the list of changes under "svn (upcoming release)" fixed?

00:17:14 Quit stripwax ("")
00:18:50casainhobluebrother: and there is the guys that bought the development board... since begin I was told from Rockbox developers that the ones that make the Rockbox port are the ones that have, own that hardware.
00:20:41bluebrotherlinuxstb: the items marked with a ! are still present
00:21:14 Quit barrywardell ()
00:21:15linuxstbbluebrother: How about moving them to a "known issues" section?
00:21:43bluebrotherI have a patch around for addressing the osx remount issue though it might not work though.
00:22:02bluebrotherlinuxstb: sounds reasonable to me
00:22:42linuxstbbluebrother: OK, I'll do that.
00:23:04casainhoI can't figure in what file I have problems:: make: *** No rule to make target `/home/cas/Documentos/rockbox_player/rockbox/build_firmware/apps/=======', needed by `/home/cas/Documentos/rockbox_player/rockbox/build_firmware/rockbox.elf'. Stop.
00:23:33gevaertscasainho: I'd guess apps/SOURCES
00:23:42Lloreancasainho: The ones that own the hardware do the work, yes. But they still do it in communication with the group, posting patches as they go (look at the AMS Sansa port) so that others can become involved quickly and easily.

00:25:04casainhoI tink is my fault, I want the best, but I am not experiencied... I used SVN here for the first time, I used JTAG debug for first time, diff and patches for first time, etc

00:25:58saratogagevaerts: what should I try?
00:26:04gevaertssoap: sorry, "emergency disk mode"
00:27:22casainhogevaerts: ok, it was apps/SOURCES :-) thanks
00:27:24Lloreancasainho: Patches, early on and all along, are good. Things like adding it to the build system, getting the simulator running, building the bootloader, building the build (even if it doesn't work) etc.
00:27:27bluebrothercasainho: writing documentation to some place is not communicating, it's documenting. But I'll shut up now.
00:27:44LloreanThese allow people to see the code and comment on it (which can help avoid issues like coding style that can result in you needing to rework things later)
00:27:47gevaertssaratoga: and FS #10026. Both *may* help. I'd suggest trying without FS #10015 to increase the chances of triggering the problems

00:30:36casainhoLlorean: and as I said in forum, I put a patch on tracker, with the help of Domonoky (If I remember correclt)
00:31:15Lloreancasainho: I'm just trying to explain why it seems like there's not much communication to us.
00:31:38linuxstbcasainho: How stable is your hardware design? I mean, is it worth trying to put your code in SVN, or will future designs be completely different (meaning the code is useless...) ?
00:31:55casainhoLlorean: okok. thanks.
00:32:03casainholinuxstb: that's a good question :-)
00:32:48casainholinuxstb: at least MCU AT91SAM9260 should be the same... or at least AT91SAM92xx
00:33:24linuxstbOK, then it would seem sensible to try and commit your changes to support that chip.
00:33:31casainhoLCD, audio DAC, buttons can change, easily, depends on company that will produce
00:33:41 Quit Rondom ("Ex-Chat")
00:34:34casainhobut do you mean that all the code for the all player should not be on Rockbox SVN?
00:35:56 Quit n1s ("Lämnar")

00:36:39 Quit ender` (" I will not interrogate my enemies in the inner sanctum -- a small hotel well outside my borders will work just as well. --")
00:37:17casainholinuxstb: the question is that we don't know if is temporay or not, or how many temporary...
00:37:42linuxstbBut I think code to support a new CPU is useful, so maybe the first thing to do would be to try and produce a nice patch to add the CPU-specific code.
00:38:06casainhoI would like to have a company producint it... it can hapen quickly or not... −− maybe we will stick with that hardware long time... doing our own borads ans assembling...
00:38:33casainhosomeone told to make a kernel_init() patch...
00:39:32casainhobut, isn't there code on SVN from unfinished targets?
00:39:41casainhoand imcomplet?

00:43:55casainhoLlorean: at least of have the information to make it, not as a comercial
00:43:56linuxstbYes, after many years. But by that time, Rockbox has supported newer targets.
00:44:18linuxstbAnd we've done a pretty good job without documentation for many players...
00:44:19casainhoand so, on that time, what is that code for on SVN?
00:44:21Bagderand we _can_ still rip out old rotting code
00:44:46LloreanI can't imagine there's much of a resale market for used embedded CPUS anyway.

00:46:02Bagderbubsy: how is that related to any registration?

02:08:18sonar___oh really?
02:08:32sonar___so there is only one...
02:08:39linuxstbsonar___: But anyway, being "based off" another DAP means that it's different - hence the e200 firmware won't work.

02:10:54saratogaits not even based off, theres no common hardware, except for different models of AMS DACs

02:15:12sonar___apparently I'll have to learn c and make it work on the sansa view.

03:25:04psychohistoryfrom linuxstb's statement, I'm assuming the car stereo decodes the music, not the external player?

03:26:57Lloreanpsychohistory: In the case of ones where they treat the MP3 player as an HD, yes.
03:26:58linuxstbpsychohistory: In msc mode, yes. It will just treat the DAP as a hard disk and access the files directly.
03:27:08LloreanThat's why you shouldn't look for USB connections, but rather just line-out / audio cable connections.
03:27:30psychohistoryohh, gotcha.

03:29:43psychohistoryok, I think I have an idea now. I'll look for some standard audio-in connection and stay away from "msc mode" stereos.

12:50:12Casainhohello :-)
12:50:55CasainhoI am getting this message "Codec failure" when I try to play files, on Lyre project. Can someone tell me why it happens? can it be because of bad reading of audio files?
12:51:13CasainhoI tried an OGG and MP3 file, with the same result.
12:51:14B4gderno, it's something wrong with your codec build
12:51:39CasainhoB4gder: ah, because I can clear see the name of files, directories, etc....
12:52:04CasainhoB4gder: so, where can I look, to discover where I have problems on codecs?
12:52:17B4gderfirst make sure you do a full build and install
12:52:26B4gderthen check the codec loader and see why it complains
12:52:55Casainhoa full build is choosing "Normal" and after "make bin", right?
12:53:06B4gderdon't do make bin

12:54:56CasainhoB4gder: so, make bin is for what? it don't build the codecs?

12:59:09pondlifeIt is an old one... I guess it should not be there at all, only in build/lang/lang.h...
13:00:39pondlifeNope - having deleted it, I now get "make: *** No rule to make target `/home/Steve/rockbox/build/lang.h', needed by `/home/Steve/rockbox/build/apps/action.o'"
13:00:42pixelmathe file got moved semi recently, causing make clean to not remove the old one (only cleaning in the new place)
13:01:15pondlifeThat's what I'm seeing, but something (here) is still looking for the old file, I think.
13:01:19pondlifei.e. in the old location
13:02:34pondlifeJust done a make veryclean, will see if that helps
13:04:18pondlifeYes, looks better now - I just needed to delete the rogue lang.h and make from clean.

21:14:08BigBambiI haven't tried it in an age - I just noticed that there is currently a one liner on the manual pointing at the wiki page
21:14:22LloreanBigBambi: Do you happen to remember the wiki page?
21:14:26n1sBigBambi: i think it belongs as an "Advanced topic" thing
21:14:32LloreanI seem to vaguely recall problems, maybe if I saw the syntax again I'd remember.

21:16:29jaykaythen shutdown
21:16:45LloreanBigBambi: Hm. I seem to recall problems relating to colors being attached to things they shouldn't be (if you coloured an MP3 it got all audio files, or all other audio files got the ??? or something) but I'm not really sure.
21:16:54casainhoI did a make clean and after make, but I continue with the same problem, the message "Codec failure" when playing a file...
21:16:58LloreanIt was something relating to colors being passed on to other things.
21:17:00gevaertsjaykay: sansapatcher didn't give errors?
21:17:07rasherjaykay: doesn't sound like you properly installed it
21:17:28LloreanBigBambi: I'm kinda amazed our text-editor handles colours files. That seems like it should be a separate plugin. Our text editor doesn't give special treatment to any other filetypes does it?
21:17:32BigBambiLlorean: I'll try it out
21:17:40jaykayrasher: gevaerts: i only changed rockbox.mi4 to rockbox2.mi4

21:28:11*Llorean is just making random assumptions in this case.
21:28:25LloreanIt's been forever since anyone's used that feature, I'm sure. I used to love it, but lost my colors file and never rebuilt one.
21:28:33BigBambiLlorean: yeah, could be. It says settings loaded and all but bog all happens

21:29:00jaykayn1s: it works
21:29:08BigBambidammit - *lost
21:29:24LloreanBigBambi: A separate color editor that listed all the extensions in filetypes.c would make it a lot more usable in general (more saying this to the "air" than you)
21:29:32LloreanVKeyboard = "nobody will use it"
21:29:39jaykayn1s: but i noticed that it took some time from "file not found" to "loading original firmware"
21:29:43BigBambiLlorean: Yes, I agree seems to choke when installing multiple toolchains at once because of the creation of summary-$1 in the /tmp/rbdev-build directory. Would the better fix be to create those summary files in a different directory or to not check for the nonexistence of /tmp/rbdev-build between runs?
21:30:44Lloreancasainho: A typical installation of a rockbox build is done by "make" then "make zip" then extracting the zip to the storage of your player, so that the bootloader can load the zip from the storage. Is that how your build of Rockbox is installed (and loaded)?
21:30:52BigBambir4v5: i.e. running multiple instances simulataneously?
21:31:03r4v5No, just choosing s m a i

21:34:59BigBambiI had it in .rockbox

21:35:54LloreanBigBambi: I guess that makes sense, though. Enforced cleanliness. heh.
21:36:14BigBambiI'll make it more clear that it has to be there

22:02:54linuxstbEvanCarroll: What were you asking Sandisk?
22:03:51EvanCarrollfor support or sponsorship to develop a port for the AMS and/or View
22:04:38*gevaerts thinks that the fact thay they bothered to answer is very encouraging
22:05:24jaykayn1s: it's better now, because the whole uninteresting crap before "cant load..."is not shown (well maybe for a fraction of a second)
22:05:31*Llorean remembers the lack of answers he got from PortalPlayer both pre and post-Nvidia.
22:05:42EvanCarrollGalois: he actually wrote a long answer and his phone number is in the sig
22:05:55jaykayn1s: i suggest to remove the uninteresting crap after this as well :)
22:06:14linuxstbLlorean: No reply from the USB people I assume?
22:06:24EvanCarrollI think we would get the port if we had advocacy that didn't suck
22:06:49Lloreanlinuxstb: Nothing.
22:07:09EvanCarrollI mean, it isn't like sansa has the legroom to not-grow their market share. Walmart has fully pulled all third party accessories at every location i've been too, and i don't think the Fuse was the ipod competitor they wanted it to be.
22:07:09Lloreanlinuxstb: That one seems rather baffling, since they're inviting exactly the sort of inquiry I made.
22:07:25LloreanEvanCarroll: What do you mean "get the port"?
22:07:35linuxstbEvanCarroll: The port just needs people to actually work on it...
22:07:57LloreanNothing is really "needed" from Sandisk. What we need is more people doing the work.
22:08:10n1sjaykay: hmm, maybe, that mi4 loading function outputs a lot of text but it might be nice tellign the user that it's loading the OF but otoh that's pretty obvious after a while...
22:08:26EvanCarrollLlorean: as in them bestowing the assitance needed to get it supported up to the level of the offical ports, fixing the bug with the 1gb cap on 2gb+ models, and the scroll wheel
22:08:41 Part The-Compiler
22:08:41LloreanEvanCarroll: Again, that's just an issue of "people need to do the work"
22:09:02LloreanEvanCarroll: NONE of the Rockbox ports have had assistance from the manufacturers beyond maybe a hardware donation or two.
22:09:21EvanCarrollthe original e200 was supported by the manufacturer iirc
22:09:23jaykayn1s: i have basically the opinion that for a normal user only understandable things should be shown, the rest only for debug-whatever
22:09:34jaykayn1s: but its obvious, of course
22:09:35linuxstbEvanCarroll: Not really. They donated two players.
22:09:36rasherEvanCarroll: Not really.
22:09:38LloreanEvanCarroll: You recall incorrectly, or were misinformed. They gave us a few pieces of hardware.
22:10:02linuxstbIIUC, it was just someone in their marketing department - they never provided any technical help.
22:10:09Lloreanjaykay: Often we need to ask people the debug information, it's easier if it's shown rather than requiring them to time presses or something.
22:10:34EvanCarrollI don't see the harm in asking them to fund a port through a bounty or to fix the problems that would create an incentive to purchase their player.
22:10:59rasherEvanCarroll: it'll never happen.

22:11:23EvanCarrollAnd they responded.
22:11:38EvanCarrollLlorean: why would you say that, their resellers sell on Rockbox.
22:11:45LloreanEvanCarroll: Basically, it probably goes something like this. 1) We start supporting a player. 2) People use our tools to mess up players. 3) Those people try to get warranty replacements. 4) We get blamed for increased support costs.
22:11:46n1sLlorean: the pp bootloader doesn't print any text unless it encounters an error or a button is pressed
22:11:59BigBambiCould somebody have a quick look at - it jut corrects the spelling in the special part of text_editor that deals with filetype colours. It is tiny but I'm not well versed in these things so want to make sure
22:11:59Lloreann1s: Yes, so if it encounters that error, it should display all relevant text.
22:12:49jaykayn1s: i guess including that i cleared out
22:12:54EvanCarrollLlorean: The same arguement could be made of all things with unofficial linux ports, but yet companies do come around.
22:13:02EvanCarrollLook at Buffalo, which now sells a router with a linux port.
22:13:14LloreanBigBambi: A one-character change is hard to mess up
22:13:18n1sLlorean: "file not found" is all the relevant text to the file not found error, it's just that i turned on the "verbose" mode to get any text out at all and it displays a lot of stuff when loading the OF too, not that it matters much
22:13:25EvanCarrollAnd Linksys, which sells a whole line of Linux capable routers with more ram.

22:14:49LloreanEvanCarroll: Froobi doesn't provide end-user support. They aren't shouldering an added risk.
22:15:50LloreanPeople don't even log into routers unless they're moderately technical. Rockbox on the other hand can be installed by a monkey that gets lucky enough with the mouse. We've got to be somewhat frightening to people who see us as a significant possible added cost.
22:16:18LloreanIn fact most routers come with a basic password on them so that you *have* to read at least some of the manual before you can even try to upgrade their firmware.
22:16:26*domonoky would find it very nice if some manufacturers would support rockbox, but it probably wont happen..
22:16:36LloreanI'd love it if we were supported/helped.
22:16:37EvanCarrollthe monkeys with a mouse, that return their sansa, are doing so because they lost 7gb of storage and a mousewheel, both of these are technical problems that sansa could overcome, or pay to overcome.
22:16:40n1sLlorean: actually it prints "Can't load rockbox.mi4" since this case covers all cases where the loading failed, which is either the file is not found or is broken or wrong. And yes, it shoudl start the OF if the file is not valid
22:17:12LloreanEvanCarroll: That's entirely incorrect. I'm not talking about AMS sansas in terms of returns. I'm talking about supported targets.
22:17:13EvanCarrollLlorean: maybe i should create a few advocacy pages on the wiki
22:17:51Lloreann1s: It needs to show the CRC and target string then, if it's a bad file. So we can know if the CRC check was the problem, or if it's an IP4G on an IPCO or whatever the strings are
22:17:59n1salso this patch does not touch anything in the ipod bootloader just the other pp-one
22:18:08EvanCarrollLlorean: oh? So you believe the dual-booting linux firmware for the e200 that runs almost wholey without flaws makes a for a net-loss on Sansa
22:18:18Lloreann1s: The keypress wait needs to be in a location where that stuff is still visible, no clear.
22:18:29BigBambiEvanCarroll: What linux firmware?
22:18:47*domonoky would like to ask a sandisk ams-developer a few things.. :-) *why did they connect the scrollwheel this way?*
22:19:01BigBambiEvanCarroll: Rockbox is in no way whatsoever based on linux
22:19:18EvanCarrollBigBambi: my typo, thinking about the router again
22:19:42EvanCarrollI'm just saying that I honestly think you'd be smoking the crazy pipe to conclude rockbox causes more damage in support than sales.
22:19:43LloreanEvanCarroll: Considering how many people I've seen openly admit to being willing to lie to Sandisk about things after using sansapatcher or some other tool to brick their Sansa by not following directions, I don't know if it's a net loss, but I DO know it changes their profit/loss from what they expected.

22:29:26linuxstbWho wants to do it then?
22:29:34BigBambiIMO, the release should just say v3.2 with no SVN revision at all for the version number
22:29:47LloreanBigBambi: That can be fixed in the branch later.
22:30:01LloreanRight now we should just create the branch, so it's there and the freeze on the main branch can lift.

22:57:02Bagderas the front page says...

22:57:43Bagdernot anytime soon, if ever

23:00:46gevaertsThat would explain it :)
23:03:51Bagderbut no, I don't see it in the mailman logs
23:04:15gevaertsI could resend...

23:16:51saratogagevaerts: I tried Toni's patch and was able to copy 15GB without any disconnects
23:16:57saratogai think this is promising, but I need to test more
23:17:00Bagderthe 3.2 RC builds are done
23:17:18amiconnLoading constants from memory, in a tight loop, when there are enough registers available. Also not taking the pipeline latency of the multiplier into account...
23:17:38saratogathe disconnect thing seems sporadic to me, I was able to copy 2GB with SVN rockbox today without disconnects, while the other day I could barely do 200MB
23:17:53saratogai need to test more rigorously to be sure the improvement is real
23:18:21amiconnSounds like battery problems...
23:19:40gevaertssaratoga: that sounds promising at least :)

23:20:36gevaertssaratoga: this is svn+Toni's patch, without FS #10015, right?
23:20:49*amiconn never copied that much using rockbox usb
23:21:23amiconnNot because I don't trust it, but because OF/diskmode is faster, and I don't want to wait unnecessarily
23:21:47gevaertsbubsy: please, this is not a random chatter channel...
23:21:51amiconngevaerts: Is there a patch containing your usb speedup work?
23:22:06saratogagevaerts: yes SVN with only Toni's patch
23:22:11bubsygevaerts: Sorry for trying to make people smile
23:22:14bubsyI'll stop with it
23:22:15gevaertsamiconn: FS #10015. You need the DMA patch to make full use of it though
23:22:36saratogafor the Sansa, the OF and Rockbox speed are basically the same
23:22:40saratogaunfortunately both are very slow
23:22:46saratogatesting is quite tedious
23:23:45saratogais Toni's patch supposed to be Sansa specific?
23:23:46Bagderbubsy: #rockbox-community is there for that purpose
