01:16:01stingray_shreyfor a Rockbox app, what sort of features would be needed?
01:16:17EternalRainsthat depends on what you define as 'app'
01:16:26stingray_shreywithout a new OS I don't see how Rockbox could play Flac or OGG
01:16:30stingray_shreyon an iphone
01:16:53EternalRainsrockbox is, essentially, a new os. (someone correct me if I'm wrong)
01:16:57scorchewhy not?
01:17:04saratogastingray_shrey: have you read the mailing list stuff about Rockbox as an App?
01:17:15cmwslwiPhonelinux is working on writing drivers for the iPhone
01:17:28stingray_shreyyes, but I was exploring whether instead of making a new OS for iphone there was a way to install it as an app
01:17:32cmwslwonce we're done, Rockbox could be ported
01:17:42stingray_shreysorry, no I have not read the mailing list.
01:17:57*EternalRains facepalms as he didn't at first see the meaning of 'app' in iphone
01:18:14Lloreanstingray_shrey: Why would it need to be an OS to play FLAC?
01:18:48cmwslwI doubt anything apple has in the api would be powerful enough
01:19:02cmwslwpossibly if it's an app for a hacked iPhone
01:19:03 Quit robin0800_ (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
01:19:06Lloreancmwslw: Powerful enough to do what?
01:19:10stingray_shreyiphone cannot natively play flac
01:19:13rasherRockbox has its own decoders...
01:19:13LloreanYou just need a means of PCM output.
01:19:37stingray_shreyand if it can't play flac files accessing them with an app wouldn't work...
01:20:03rasherstingray_shrey: Why not? If the app can read the file, it can decode it.
01:20:05saratogarockbox is actually an aduio player fyi
01:20:06cmwslwApps are not really meant for loading and playing files
01:20:28cmwslwand plus, you would not be able to use the home or sleep buttons
01:20:34EternalRainscmwslw: but surely they have some kind of io capabilities?
01:20:38Lloreancmwslw: I find it hard to believe that apps can't open a file, perform calculations on it, and output audio...
01:20:38stripwaxstingray_shrey - no: if the iphone has an api for playing pcm audio, rockbox (the app) would do the audio (flac,vorbis,etc) decoding
01:20:49rasherSo the Apple API doesn't have a) the means of reading a file b) the means of playing pcm audio?
01:21:05stingray_shreyI was under the impression a complete replacement of the stock iphone Music app can be made
01:21:09rasherIf you have that, you can play FLACs
01:21:11cmwslwActually I was wrong
01:21:15stingray_shreywith all of its functionality
01:21:23cmwslwIt is possible to do that because PwnPlayer does it
01:21:27EternalRainsstingray_shrey: that would likely require jailbreaking.
01:21:35EternalRainsoh, nvm.
01:21:53stingray_shreythat's not too different a process from installing the rockbox OS on previous gen ipods

01:23:03stripwaxit really is different, I meant
01:23:22stingray_shreyso a rockbox app which required a jailbroken ipod touch/iphone would be feasible
01:24:17EternalRainspossible, but the feasibility is debateable
01:25:16stingray_shreyseeing as how as it stands it's not possible to replace the apple music app
01:25:39stingray_shreyi would venture to say that jailbreaking is a good pre requisite
01:25:59LloreanWhy does it need to be necessary to replace the core music app?
01:26:10stingray_shreyby "replace"
01:26:24stingray_shreyI mean have all the abilities/features
01:26:28stingray_shreyand more
01:26:41cmwslwApple wouldn't allow a music app replacement, so jailbreaking would be necessary
01:26:52stingray_shreyof course
01:27:04Lloreanstingray_shrey: Rockbox on the iPhone would have the same features as Rockbox normally has.
01:27:13LloreanYou wouldn't be writing a new program or anything, just adapting an existing one.
01:27:17cmwslwand I don't think that an un-jailbroken app can access the filesystem directly (correct me if I'm wrong
01:28:34stingray_shreythe rockbox app would have to work with the iphone OS
01:28:38stingray_shreynot replace it

01:32:30stripwaxstingray_shrey - well, there's no point making an entirely separate version of a rockbox application "just for iphone" that doesn't look/behave like all other rockbox versions.

02:18:09Lloreanstingray_shrey: Do your research into Rockbox itself. When you're writing your application you're basically putting something forward that's going to be compared with other students. How much work you've already put in definitely paints a picture of how much work you seem like you're willing to do.

02:31:58stingray_shreyof course
02:32:14ufomanhmm why online manuals have this weird cjk-ready font? ff 3.0.8 here...
02:32:17stingray_shreyI was thinking of just making a rockbox app from the ground up
02:32:49saratogawhat does that mean
02:33:05stingray_shreybasically jsut an app that plays music with a different user interface
02:33:12stingray_shreythat would also play flac and ogg formats
02:33:14Lloreanstingray_shrey: That's not Rockbox then...
02:33:33stingray_shreyI see your point
02:33:40Lloreanufoman: I don't see anything odd with the Rockbox manuals. What problem are you experiencing, exactly?
02:34:44stingray_shreyI don't fully understand what it means to "port" rockbox into an app for to the iphone
02:34:46ufomanLlorean: all of them are displayed in double width font you can often encounter on chinese pages...
02:34:51stingray_shreyapp form*
02:35:59ufomanLlorean: hmm... they look ok on ff 3.0.8 on windows
02:36:05stingray_shreyi would like to work with the iphone (as I'm very interested in iphone development)
02:36:40stingray_shreybut any doable project would be a great introduction to open source, and rockbox
02:36:52Lloreanstingray_shrey: "Porting" Rockbox means taking the existing Rockbox codebase, and making the changes necessary for it to run on the selected device.
02:36:59andy`and you would like to make a iphone app out of rockbox?
02:37:48ufomanLlorean: ufoman/weirdfont.png">
02:38:08andy`that is not really porting though.
02:38:33Lloreanufoman: It's most likely a settings issue.
02:39:16stingray_shreytrue, but I fell with the iphone and ipod touch rockbox's current functionality would be too limited
02:39:16ufomanprobably you're right
02:39:28stingray_shreyit would need to undergo a big change
02:39:33ufomanI won't bother you anymore, it's time to sleep
02:39:44stingray_shreyi feel**
02:40:06Lloreanstingray_shrey: If there's functionality missing in Rockbox, wouldn't it make sense to patch it into the core codebase?
02:40:34LloreanIf you're planning on writing a new app, rather than using Rockbox, it's not really a Rockbox project.
02:40:43andy`what Llorean is saying is that porting rockbox to the iphone is more than just making an application that runs as an iphone app. it is making the changes necessary for rockbox to run as a standalone application
02:40:59stingray_shreyoh okay
02:41:18stingray_shreyI see, actually changing the existing rockbox code
02:41:20Unhelpfulincluding figuring out *how* to run your own OS on iPhone
02:41:53stingray_shreyhere's the actual project idea from the RockBox main page:
02:41:54stingray_shreyPortable devices which allow third party applications to run within the retail OS are becoming increasingly popular. Convert Rockbox to an application that runs on a Windows, Linux or Apple based cellphone, PDA, iPhone, or similar device that allows third party applications.
02:41:57LloreanUnhelpful: Well it could be an application rather than OS, though that's also a considerable task.
02:42:09Lloreanstingray_shrey: Yes. "Convert Rockbox"
02:42:35andy`if you were to write an iphone application that does the same thing at rockbox, but uses the iphone OS, then you've made an application that serves the "same" purpose, but is not a rockbox port
02:43:19andy`and you've would have made an iphone app, not something rockbox related.
02:43:21krazykitandy`, maybe you just need to broaden your definition of what constitutes a port
02:43:45Lloreankrazykit: Uhm, the Rockbox developers define what constitutes a port of Rockbox.
02:44:21andy`krazykit: perhaps, but I still believe that an iphone app is something completely different than rockbox
02:44:30LloreanAnd what we expect from such a summer of code project is that it be the Rockbox codebase, adapted to either run as an OS or Application on the new hardware.
02:44:38LloreanNot a separate codebase that needs to be kept in sync
02:44:57 Quit JdGordon (Remote closed the connection)
02:46:44 Quit Conic ()
02:47:59andy`stingray_shrey: so if you were to port the rockbox to the iphone, you would have to make something that replaces the iphone OS and boots rockbox.
02:48:21Lloreanandy`: Not true.
02:48:46LloreanRockbox as an App is one of our summer of code suggestions. The key is that it's _Rockbox_ as an app, not "a separate app designed to be similar to Rockbox"
02:49:36andy`Llorean: oh, then I'm wrong. I haven't read the suggestions yet
02:50:07 Nick fxb is now known as fxb__ (
02:50:42stingray_shreythe iphone can only read C++ and Objective C
02:51:21 Join JdGordon [0] (
02:51:53andy`Llorean: I know taht i should probably read it first, but I'll ask instead. Exactly what would rockbox as an app mean? I'm guessing that it would run on my PC, but does it cover anything like an iPhone app?
02:52:39Lloreanandy`: Right now you can already, in a way, run a Rockbox app on your PC
02:52:47LloreanFor each player we support there's also a User Interface Simulator.
02:53:15Lloreanit's basically a version of Rockbox compiled to run on a PC and simulate Rockbox's user interface on that player. Hardware isn't emulated but it's useful for testing application-level code, or doing WPS design, etc.
02:53:56LloreanBut it does feature music playback. Because it's designed as a UI simulator, and because it was never really intended for use *as* a music player, it's not really in the best state for actual *use* though some people are reported to use it as their audio player.
02:54:35LloreanThe "as an app" project would be cleaning this up and making it possible to compile Rockbox as an application on its own, rather than as a simulator, as well as improving the state of the program when compiled this way (some things that are simulated wouldn't be at all necessary in an as-an-app version, etc)
02:54:39andy`Then it is for development purposes? As it is easier to develop for rockbox if you can test your changes without uploading a new image all the time.
02:54:53LloreanIt's primarily for development purposes currently, yes.
02:55:24andy`and I agree, that would be quite usefull
02:55:33LloreanAnyway, the as-an-app project could target an iPhone, or windows mobile, or Desktop Linux. The target isn't *entirely* relevant except as a proof-of-concept to the rest of the work involved.
02:56:22LloreanMost of the work should be generally useful for future application ports to other targets (hopefully)

05:53:31JdGordonwell, the sim dumps it to stdout/err but im trying to debug threading issues so i dont know how acurate it is
05:54:32UnhelpfulJdGordon: no idea. i have a macro set somewhere that does debugf if you're building for sim, logf for target. there's a similar macro in svn somewhere, also, i think.
05:55:15JdGordonjhMikeS: is queue_reply() blocking?
05:56:05JdGordon... doenst look like it
05:57:57JdGordonso, it looks like it might be trying to replace the codec while its still running!
05:58:16JdGordonalthough, that makes no sense at all...
05:58:23dreamlayersActually, it's not that volume changes in test_sampr are glitchy; the problem is that list scrolling in the plugin causes audio buffer underruns.
05:58:56Unhelpfuldreamlayers: perhaps extra yields are needed?
06:02:30dreamlayersUnhelpful: Perhaps, but not in test_sampr. While this is happening, the plugin is in rb->set_int. This may be related to the underruns in Doom.

07:00:22dreamlayersIn wma.c, ci->request_next_track() is true after the track is done, and that's what leads to the codec failure.
07:02:55JdGordonwhich it should because wma isnt the correct codec for the next track
07:03:37dreamlayersBut that causes it to try to decode the next track.
07:03:58dreamlayersIt should return false.
07:04:14JdGordonoh misread..
07:06:09JdGordonok, so that prev_codectype check looks like it might be pointing to the new track and not the previous one... but why would that only happen with wma?
07:07:44JdGordonno, its pointing correctly... changing it to othertrack_id3 causes wma to fail every time

07:09:40dreamlayersMaybe other codecs return CODEC_OK when this happens?
07:11:39dreamlayersGoing from MP3 to WMA also results in "New track loaded". In that case the next track is just briefly displayed on the screen and it doesn't play.
07:12:03JdGordonso wma here is correct?
07:13:47dreamlayersI don't know what's the proper thing to do when a functioning codec is given a file it cannot play. If returning CODEC_ERROR is acceptable, then WMA is correct.
07:14:09JdGordonthat sounds sensible to me

11:07:40PaulJamhi, there seems to be a problem with the rockboxdev script when trying to install multiple compilers. the first one gets build, but for the second one i get the message "You already have a /tmp/rbdev-build directory! Please remove it and re-run the script".
11:08:03GodEaterditto - I got that too
11:08:17GodEaterhaven't delved into it to find the fix yet though
11:08:25GodEaterprobably a missing "rm" somewhere
11:09:26B4gderprobably yes, people moved around the logic in there recently...
11:10:27GodEaterthere isn't an "all" option anymore is there ?

15:53:29gevaertsjoking? Where?
15:53:54ArtificialGekkoHello, I have a problem with Rockbox on the Sansa e200. I looked through the documentation but I can't find help.
15:54:00dionoeawe already did the apple joke 2 years ago :) (For VideoLAN ... so we had to resort to something less obvious this year :D)
15:55:04dionoeaArtificialGekko: describing your problem might help.
15:55:17ArtificialGekkoAll of a sudden Rockbox would not display files in the filebrowser anymore
15:55:35ArtificialGekkoThe files seem to be there because they appear in the database and can be played from there without a problem.
15:56:05ArtificialGekkoIn the "Files" Section of the main menu however there is only empty folders of the albums I transferred to the Sansa.
15:56:09LloreanArtificialGekko: You may have changed your file view setting. You should check what it's set to.
15:56:25dionoeamaybe you just need to change the show files settings
15:56:34dionoeajust long press the menu button
15:56:43ArtificialGekkoAlright, looking for those in the menu
15:56:55dionoea(or whatever the down button is called)
15:57:14ArtificialGekkoIt seems like that happened ever since rockbox crashe in the middle of playback about two weeks ago.
15:57:25 Quit PaulJam__ (No route to host)
15:58:24ArtificialGekkoOh wow, that actually did the trick. Thank you, it was set to "show playlits only"
15:58:55ArtificialGekko*slaps forehead* Now that was simple. I wonder how it happened, though, I surely did not set it like that. :)

16:00:19ArtificialGekkoAlso, does anybody know how I can keep the MUSIC folder from turning invisible every time I connect the sansa to the computer?
16:00:33 Quit CaptainKwel (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
16:01:31ZagorArtificialGekko: the simple solution is to put your music in another folder
16:03:42LloreanArtificialGekko: Or use a build of Rockbox with USB enable, and never go into the original firmware
16:03:46B4gderbut somehow I think it lacks the rockbox "style"
16:04:10LloreanB4gder: And my eyes seem to be drawn to "Buyer's Guide"
16:04:54ArtificialGekkoI updated to the current build yesterday, so I should have usb enabled I guess.
16:05:09ArtificialGekkoThe database will still find files that are not in the original MUSIC folder?
16:05:30 Part LinusN
16:05:46LloreanThe database has no restrictions on where file are, as long as it's not someplace you've told it to ignore
16:06:27ArtificialGekkoAlright I didn't know that. Thank you very much for your help, everyone! :)
16:07:22dionoeaB4gder: That concept is awesome!
16:07:24ZagorB4gder: that looks pretty good
16:07:39Zagorthe white-on-lightgray links at the top are not so good though
16:07:46dionoeaFeels a tiny bit too "corporate" ... but overall it rocks

16:09:05B4gderthe guy clearly has skills in design
16:09:38LloreanI still don't really like all-orange pages.
16:10:10LloreanIt's a nice page, but it's not one I'd want to use or see regularly.

16:13:55BigBambiI quite like that too
16:14:01markunI don't mind the colours so much. I had to get used to as well.
16:14:09BigBambiThe colours could be tweaked a bit
16:14:31BigBambiBut it'd be a bit of a shock to click on something and then shoved into the wiki
16:14:32LloreanIt feels like it's very noisy.
16:14:38LloreanThere's navigation split between two or three areas
16:14:41BigBambi(for instance)
16:14:58BigBambiand I'm not rure how e.g. the wiki would fit into a style like that
16:15:11LloreanAnd it's pretty lacking in actual information for users.
16:15:29markunthe "about rockbox" part is very optimistic :)
16:15:35LloreanThere's a lot of links, but the whole page basically tells a user "you have to go somewhere else before you know anything, hope you pick right"
16:15:42FlynDicefunman: Yes, I made a few changesfrom that info, I'll post something when I get back in tonight, gotta go take some poeple to LA right now though. Thanks for confirming that it's operating!!
16:16:09BigBambiI do like it in general though
16:16:16ZagorLlorean: history seems to indicate that is what users expect
16:16:45LloreanZagor: Possibly. Even then, the navigation is split between that middle bar thing, and the top bar.

17:39:24GodEaternever heard of them
17:40:03ZagorAleMaxx: ?
17:40:03AleMaxxthats a rockchip soc with arm7 core and dsp
17:40:11LloreanAleMaxx: You don't really port to a system on a chip
17:40:25LloreanYou port to a specific player, because there's generally still differences in button layout, LCD, etc.
17:40:27 Join archivator [0] (n=archivat@
17:41:01LloreanYou do end up with a lot of reusable code for future port attempts though, if there are many similar players
17:41:30AleMaxxwell, i have some valueable information but currently im a bit disillusioned
17:41:47Zagorthe question is how common is the player. there are so many chinese players that you rarely find two people with the same player...
17:42:03AleMaxxtheyre quite common i guess
17:42:42AleMaxxsome onda players use them, ramos and my player is compatible to a player called "Ramos T8"

17:43:44AleMaxxI think a first step has to be to have some kind of USB bootloader or port your gdb-arm-stub to that player
17:44:40AleMaxxI wrote a tool that lets you modify the firmware or create a new firmware file and there is an SDK available on the internet
17:45:05ZagorI mean the player, not the chip. I assume not every player with that chip has the same buttons and display?
17:46:12AleMaxxZagor, youre right. But I dont see a problem for the keys, theyre all handled by gpio, so you could configure them easily

17:54:26Zagorwe have an ingenic port already

20:41:14ErantI'm going to wild guess and say it's probably ARM based. There's the offchance of it being MIPS.
20:41:44gevaertsthat could work
20:41:59ErantIt's far too big for a GSoC project, but I don't mind.

22:15:00BdN3504where shall i add comment?
22:15:11BigBambito the task
22:15:18archivatorGodEater, kugel: right. I was just wondering, seemed like the person who committed it forgot to close the entry.
22:15:36kugelthere's some work to do I think
22:17:25BigBambiBdN3504: Also, what have you actually changed? There appear to be a huge number of lines in that patch that haven't actually changed (line endings maybe)
22:17:38*gevaerts points BigBambi to later comments :)
22:17:46bluebrotherBdN3504: it would be nice if the real name was set properly in the FS profile ...

22:18:26BdN3504thank you.

22:20:04BdN3504ok, then i'll have to learn coding a bit more and add another diff

22:20:44rasherIt does not.
22:20:49bluebrotheri.e. it's swcodec.
22:20:49BigBambiI thought they used rvf
22:20:59bluebrotherthey do, but that's not mpeg ;-)

22:23:51kugelthough, that may not a apple feature if I think about it
22:23:52thunder_dropYou know... You did a joke last year too... we all know you're joking

22:39:20BdN3504so that should be the files? so the list is set up like this : "MPEG1 and MPEG2 video |.mpg|Play the movie with the MPEG Player plugin "
22:39:41BigBambiwhy two spaces before MPEG?
22:40:06BigBambiAlso, why use movie not video, as is already there for archos?
22:40:07BdN3504\opt{swcodec}{ ..... } isn't that windows again?

23:42:27BdN3504i got many errors trying to compile the manual.... is that normal? in the end i get a pdf i can open, but the list seems too long. can i post a link?
23:43:16BigBambito pastebin, sure
23:43:58BdN3504but i thought i'd post the actual pdf, so you see exactly what i see. can i do that on pastebin`?
23:45:01bluebrothersir_lewk: you could do that, but have you tried fsck'ing the filesystem first? Also, if you have access to a windows machine running chkdsk /f might help. From my experience that is a bit better in fixing issues with the filesystem −− linux is more forgiving
23:45:09BigBambiI don't know - if it is a pdf, just post a link to it
23:45:31BdN3504it's page 144

23:46:42BigBambiwithout seeing the errors
23:47:01BigBambiUnfortunately the latex output gives so much pointless stuff it is hard to find real errors in there
23:47:04bluebrotherwell, the table simply got too long for that page. Someone(tm) needs to convert it using ltxtable
23:47:15bluebrotheror longtable.
23:48:04BdN3504if you compare this to the manual that's online right now, the same page is 151. this is weird

23:57:48BdN3504the first error i get is file utf8.def not found which i think is the error resulting in most other errors...
