01:31:25soapOk, it's been awhile since the new theme site has gone up. Still many authors have not moved their themes over. Is it time to discuss the fate of the (permissively licensed) themes on the wiki, or is the consensus to let them rot?
01:32:43saratogaI think if people want to move them they might as well
01:33:08saratogathe authors can always contact the theme site admins if they want to update their themes at some point in the future

01:38:09LloreanWell, licensed under that specific CC license, that is
01:38:58LloreanOn the other hand, we could just ignore all the old themes. Remove all the existing pages, dump *all* of them into a page called ThemeGraveyard, and then (if it's possible) make that place read only.

04:09:44saratogaLlorean: do we have to use the same bootloaders for SVN and release installs?
04:11:06LloreanAt the moment there's not the infrastructure in RBUtil to install different bootloaders depending on the choice made, I think.
04:11:12saratogaah ok
04:11:20LloreanAnd we'll have USB enabled in the release, and new bootloaders, in what, a month and a half now?
04:11:26LloreanProbably not worth the effort.
04:12:12LloreanProbably about the time people should be looking at big patches they want to get into 3.3 actually, so there's plenty of time for testing before the freeze etc.
04:12:55LloreanAssuming we even have any "big" features still sitting around nearly done.
04:13:09saratogaI guess beast support, but who knows about that
04:13:52LloreanIsn't the big hurdle for the beast that we don't have an effective way to install in Windows?
04:14:09 Join Thundercloud [0] (

04:16:25saratogai'm not sure, but i think the problem was getting the libusb licensing sorted out
04:17:05LloreanIt's LGPL right? Shouldn't be a problem?
04:18:45linuxstblibusb isn't the issue, it was the Microsoft MTP library.
04:18:47saratogai think the example code we used to call libusb was under ambigulous license or something like that
04:19:03linuxstbAnd the example code to use that MS lib...
04:19:05Lloreanlinuxstb: But that's an issue for Windows install only?
04:19:32*Llorean thinks that RBUtil support in Linux only is good enough for a release if such is necessary.
04:20:04LloreanI mean, it means for some people a LiveCD is necessary for the bootloader install, which is one-off anyway. Not such a huge deal?
04:20:05*linuxstb doesn't care about rbutil support - running an ipodpatcher-like application isn't hard...
04:20:24linuxstb(and only has to be done once)
04:21:00LloreanAn rbutil like app wouldn't be bad, but if we've got one of those for Windows, couldn't RBUtil just run it for you if you put it in the same folder?
04:21:06LloreanEr, an ipodpatcher like app
04:21:57saratogadon't we have people use libusb to do the e200R install?
04:22:06saratogawould the same trick not work here
04:22:15Lloreanthe e200R doesn't require MTP
04:22:57saratogai'm mixing up libusb and libmtp probably
04:23:48linuxstbThe complication is how WIndows handles USB drivers - you need a driver for each VID/PID combination. e200rpatcher works in manufacturing mode, so it doesn't hurt for a Windows user to install the libusb driver for those IDs - it doesn't interfere with normal operation.
04:24:55wpyhlinuxstb: ipodpatcher has to be done once? well, I usually run it after every build (maybe about 20+ revs)... am I unneccessarily wasting my time? :p
04:25:43saratogayes it doesn't do anything after the first time
04:25:44linuxstbwpyh: Are you compiling ipodpatcher (and the bootloaders) yourself?
04:25:47*Llorean wonders when it was decided RBUtil support was non-essential
04:26:13LloreanI thought the whole point of releases was for the more mainstream users for which RBUtil was intended.
04:26:25linuxstbSo we drop the e200r as supported?
04:26:42LloreanThe e200r happened before we started up releases again.
04:26:46LloreanIt's sort of a grandfather clause.
04:26:47saratogai think its rbutil is required if feasible
04:26:49linuxstbBut yes, I recall it being discussed and agreed.
04:27:15wpyhlinuxstb: well, yes, I'm compiling everything by myself
04:27:41LloreanI don't see RBUtil as being "optional" for a target that's going to be added as a release target. Either it's impossible, in which case we bypass it, or we add it.
04:27:47linuxstbwpyh: Then you're helpfully testing bootloaders for us... But there's no real need to.
04:28:02 Quit Thundercloud (Remote closed the connection)
04:28:04kugelLlorean: And I can't remember when it was decided to have rbutil support essential
04:28:31*linuxstb has always thought of rbutil as an optional part of Rockbox
04:28:52*kugel too
04:28:54Lloreanlinuxstb: Being a part of Rockbox is different from being a release version
04:29:01LloreanDidn't we discuss this before 3.0?
04:29:03linuxstbWhich implies targets don't need to be supported by it to be released.
04:29:05saratogathe beast is somewhat special in that the only people using it are probably already rockbox users
04:29:17saratogaits not liek the sansas where a lot of people buy the player then find rockbox
04:29:28Lloreansaratoga: Then it doesn't need to be supported or released if that's the case.
04:29:56Llorean"Supported" means it's ready for mainstream users. At this point, that means they can follow our "standard" install procedure - use RBUtil and let that handle it.
04:30:19 Quit Makuseru (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
04:30:30*kugel disagrees
04:30:37LloreanIf we want to have tiered levels of support, we should mark ones without RBUtil "beta" or something so people know in advance we're not offering them the full package.
04:30:37wpyhhm... ok... :p I haven't found major problems though, except for in-development ports (like sansa fuze) where I need to compile and install both the bootloader and the normal build otherwise rockbox couldn't be loaded at all
04:30:51kugelwhere the distinction to released then (if there's a distinction)?
04:31:05saratogai think the bootloader changes maybe once or twice a year, so theres probably never been anything for you to find problems in
04:31:33saratogawpyh: you don't need to recompile the sansa bootloader, and you probably shouldn't
04:32:03kugelI really wouldn't want rbutil support necessary to consider a target as completed
04:32:03Lloreanlinuxstb: If an automated installer can be done, why _shouldn't_ it be RBUtil, exactly? I mean, what's the point in not doing RBUtil support if it's possible? And if it's possible, what's the harm in waiting for it to be done before declaring it "supported"?
04:32:25Lloreankugel: Why not, exactly? If RBUtil support can be done, why not do it? If it can't be done, then it's not necessary for that target.
04:32:40LloreanSaying it's unnecessary is just creating an excuse for it not to have to be done ever.
04:32:53*scorche reminds people that we are still looking for topics to discuss during devcon...
04:32:57LloreanIt's like saying "I don't think plugin keymaps are necessary for a port to be supported."
04:32:59saratogathe problem with rbutil is that its c++ and thus a lot of us have no idea how to work on it, so we have to depend on a couple people to keep up with development
04:33:01kugelparticularly because that means the people working on a port need to get involved with a totally different part of rockbox (desktop app, other language, other philosophy)
04:33:12kugelthat way, rbutil will only block new ports
04:33:41Lloreankugel: To which I can respond to you what gets told to users all the time - languages can be learned.
04:33:57Lloreanespecially if having RBUtil call an external installer application is an option anyway.
04:33:59linuxstbLlorean: The target status page lists the criteria for release. I guess you don't agree with those.
04:34:02saratogagranted i only put about 30 minutes effort into it, but I still can't even manage to get rbutil to compile on my ubuntu machine
04:34:16kugelpeople that work on a port are the ones that care less about rbutil since they use rockbox for a long time, and are familiar with the non-rbutil installation procedudes (they wrote them!)
04:34:38Lloreanlinuxstb: I wasn't aware wiki pages were automatically difinitive.
04:34:41kugelI think we wouldn't even consider AMS sansas for 3.3 if domonoky wasn't working rbutil anyway
04:34:59linuxstbLlorean: Then what is?
04:35:07Lloreankugel: AMS Sansas aren't done yet anyway. At least the clip isn't.
04:35:12kugelLlorean: the point is, people are required to learn a new language for rbutil support which they don't really care about anyway
04:35:17wpyhsaratoga: why shouldn't I? (because of risks of bricking the player?)
04:35:18Lloreanlinuxstb: Is something?
04:35:23*linuxstb goes to sleep
04:35:35Lloreankugel: If they don't care about it, why should they care about the word "supported"? It's just a word.
04:35:47Llorean"Supported" means something to our users now - it means the software is ready for them.
04:35:53LloreanWe've raised the bar, we should live up to it
04:35:56LloreanNot strive to lower it back down agian.
04:36:13LloreanPeople who are comfortable can use it with the console installers, etc, anyway.
04:36:20kugelit would be nice if you can put a quote which says rbutil is explicitely requiered
04:36:39LloreanWhy do I need a quote? It's my opinion, and i haven't denied that it's just my opinion.
04:36:47kugelwe've had a talk about this when the beast was first released for a day or two. without rbutil support.
04:36:50LloreanSince when do I need a quote to backup the fact that I have an opinion?
04:37:02LloreanThe beast isn't supported.
04:37:05kugelYou claim rbutil is required
04:37:32kugelI don't think it should be, I wouldn't want that
04:37:40Lloreankugel: Where, exactly, did I claim it's required?
04:38:11LloreanYou'll notice the use of phrases such as "we should" and "I don't see" and so on.
04:38:11saratogalooking at that wiki page,linuxstb and I wrote the section on what supported means :)
04:38:21scorchesheesh...this is only the second idea added to the ideas for discussion bit for devcon?
04:38:29Lloreansaratoga: So basically linuxstb justified his statements with his other statements?
04:38:30 Quit miepchen^schlaf (Read error: 101 (Network is unreachable))
04:38:55saratogaLlorean: to be fair he added stuff to my original list which said that something was supported when you could download it and there was a manual
04:39:09kugelWe've raised the bar, we should live up to it...Not strive to lower it back down agian.
04:39:17Lloreansaratoga: Still, basically he suggested it was definitive when he's the one who wrote it there.
04:39:22kugel(that was what sounds like it was required to me)
04:39:29Lloreankugel: *should*
04:39:42LloreanThis may be an English/German thing again, but "should" doesn't mean "have to"
04:40:06saratogawpyh: yeah bootloader installs on the AMS targets are pretty safe, but if something goes wrong theres no way to recover most of them, plus its pointless unless the bootloader is actually updated
04:40:07kugel"We've raised the bar...Not strive to lower it back down agian." is the same for me
04:40:18Lloreankugel: What?
04:40:27kugelwithout the should live up to it part
04:40:34LloreanYou can't choose to ignore words in a sentence and then say "oh, but this means what I thought you said"
04:41:04wpyhsaratoga: OK, I will only update the bootloader if it's updated again then. :)
04:41:51kugelthat part doesn't add or remove something to/of the meaning in the sense that "We've raised the bar" means rbutil is required
04:41:54kugelto me, at least
04:42:05LloreanWe did raise the bar.
04:42:17LloreanBut that alone doesn't mean anything but "we've raised the bar"

05:31:27LloreanMakes sense.
05:31:40saratogai don't know how feasible it is though
05:32:16LloreanOr even a standard way to add a new target that calls an external tool so that we have a makeshift solution (it could even download the latest external tool, if we don't mind downloading executables) until "real" support is added

18:16:47Tornethat doesn't necessarily give you the ability to reflash it with arbitrary stuff

18:17:08AlexPTorne: I'd run Rockbox as a pllication
18:17:15saratogahomeyou could run rockbox as an app on the touch but someone would have to write rockbox as an app first :)
18:17:19Torneso rockbox-as-app would have to happen first
18:17:26Torneand then get ported to the iPhone

18:34:01amiconnI can't even build it on my linux box anymore, but this used to work

18:56:35amiconnH,, what does that do?
18:56:46linuxstbDisables built-in rules.
18:57:01linuxstbIt was needed because Apple added conflicting built-ins to their version of make.
18:57:01amiconnSo gcc 3.4.x needs them?
18:57:21amiconnDoes m68k-elf-gcc build on osx?
18:57:31linuxstbI'm just doing a clean compile now to confirm my guess.
18:57:51linuxstbBut "make" in the libiberty directory worked for me, but "make -r" gives the error.
18:58:27linuxstbamiconn: I recall various people testing that patch before it was committed, but my guess would be that no-one tried all the compilers...
18:58:51amiconnYeah, probably just the popular arm :\

19:37:13AlexPamiconn: I know - I mean that they may not have been tested, so that may just be chance
19:37:18amiconnThis is probably because gcc 3.4.x doesn't like -r. The others are 4.0.x or 4.1.x

19:54:36AlexPJdGordon: reverting it will break it on macosx for the others
19:54:48linuxstbI think the fix is to only use -r for binutils.
19:55:10linuxstbi.e. revert that -r commit, and explicity add "-r" to the make line for binutils.
19:55:54linuxstbThe problem on OSX is only with .m files, which only exist in binutils.

23:14:58 Quit flydutch ("/* empty */")
23:15:01gevaertsthat's weird
23:15:35gevaertsfroggyman: CF may be slower though. Still fast enough for normal use, but noticeable when copying files
23:16:21JdGordonnope, bootloader didnt update :(
23:16:21pixelmaI didn't think the new bootloaders were released, not sure though
23:16:37AlexPthey aren't
23:16:54AlexPThere are some on a flyspray task, but svn should do it too :)

23:17:19froggymangevaerts: so what about battery life, is it like a huge drop (around 50%), minimal drop, or minimal increase?
23:17:56JdGordonwhy the heck isnt sansapatcher installing the new bootloader?
23:18:03gevaertsfroggyman: I haven't tested this, but as far as I know CF should be better

23:23:08JdGordonarg, really.. wtf? I've removed the rbbl, sudo eject /dev/sdc, reconnected it, used sansapatcher to list the loaders and it shows none, reinstall the rbbl, eject again and its still showing the bl from nov 07

23:33:42linuxstbmt: Can you add some text to README.rockbox describing these changes? Are all the changes from patches to ffmpeg, or are some your work?
23:34:01linuxstbi.e. give links to where you got the patches from, and say which you applied.

23:40:35JdGordonlinuxstb: have you got any ideas why sansapatcher and rbutil both cant seem to do anything with the firware partition?
23:40:58JdGordonboth say successfully removed/installed the bootloader, but nothing gets changed
23:44:29linuxstbJdGordon: Sorry, no.
