00:01:40gevaertsthat's the one
00:02:41kugelIIRC, the current version is the original implementation again
00:02:54froggymanwhere would i find a good sized rockbox logo
00:02:59kugelso, this bug would be in the original too
00:03:23kugelif I can figure it out, I'll mail the author (he's indeed answering on mails regarding natsort)

00:09:34tomersHi there! I cannot catch scrollwheel on E200 using either button_status() and button_get(). Any clue?
00:10:15 Quit bertrik ("Leaving")
00:10:55linuxstbWheels generate scroll events (not on/off presses/releases) so they won't be in button_status. I would expect them to be in button_get() though.
00:11:53gevaertskugel: it does skip over spaces, see the outer while(1) loop

00:13:20JdGordon|tomers: hey, whats the issue with the usb connect patch? is it just that you want to control the buttons and are worried there will be some extra presses at the beginig or something?

00:15:15kugelmaybe you look at get_action()?
00:15:30wookey_hello peeps - just upgraded to rel 3.2 (sansa e200). Very nice work.
00:15:37kugel(that's the "supposedely" apps/ version of button get with a few more features
00:15:41tomersOK! Found it! It was button_get(true). Apparently button_get(false) and button_status() don't have it
00:15:56wookey_Several .wps screen don't seem to work anymore - they fall back to rockbox default screen
00:16:20wookey_I'm peering at the .wps files now. Is there a known problem that causes this?
00:16:22CPrompt^so if i update to 3.2 on my iPod Video 30gig, and something doesn't work right, can I just put the .rockbox folder that I have on there now?
00:16:43wookey_And is there a way of checking the syntax short of loading/trying over and over?
00:16:58 Join HellDragon [0] (
00:17:01kugeltomers: ah, I think that's the problem with the scrollwheel being an interrupt (it doesn't post BUTTON_NONE regulary)
00:17:17kugelI don't know actually, just guessing
00:17:28gevaertswookey_: there's checkwps in the source tree (tools/checkwps)
00:17:53tomerskugel: Never mind, it works... Thanks!
00:17:59gevaertsAlso, the simulator builds should give debug output
00:18:33toffe82kugel: ??? wrong tab complete
00:18:39kugelcan you get *any* button with button_get(false)? it seems it just returns BUTTON_NONE then (I'm not sure what pending_count is for)
00:19:01kugeltoffe82: yep, sorry :(
00:19:03linuxstbCPrompt^: Yes.
00:19:35CPrompt^linuxstb: on my current install of rockbox there are files "nvram.bin" and "rockbox.ipod" these are not in the 3.2 that I downloaded
00:19:47CPrompt^can i not just copy the .rockbox folder to the iPod?
00:19:55wookey_gevaerts: thanx. Will look
00:20:12linuxstbCPrompt^: There should be a rockbox.ipod file in the 3.2 download.
00:20:25linuxstbnvram.bin contains some settings/status info.
00:20:33CPrompt^linuxstb: hmmm...there's not in the one I just downloaded

00:27:30linuxstbWhere was it hiding before?
00:27:38JdGordon|tomers: see my question 15min ago?
00:27:40CPrompt^it just wasnt there
00:27:47kugelJdGordon|: still want the statusbar per-screen?
00:27:57kugelI'm wondering how to integrate that into the settings

00:28:52CPrompt^linuxstb: i am guessing the nvram.bin file is supposed to be there too?
00:29:01kugelNo, that's created at runtime

00:32:00kugelthere were 3 major issues. splashes, set_int(), and what's happening on changing the theme
00:32:38kugelbtw, is there really any good reason to leave the theme folder after changing it when browsing themes in the settings?
00:33:01kugelthat's not done for fonts or wpses, nor it goes anywhere else when browsing for themes in the filebrowser
00:33:34kugelalso, I find it major annyoing to re-enter the theme browser again when I'm in the mood for trying out a few
00:34:07wookey_hmm, anyone know what %t1 in a .wps file is/used to be. It's not listed in manual, but is in my broken .wps file
00:34:31JdGordon|it should be in the manual
00:34:36JdGordon|under subline timeouts
00:34:56tomersI tried to publish my personal git using the instructions in but I have very limited quota in my remote server. How can I public only my own changes?
00:35:00kugelit's not :S
00:35:33kugelit should be in the manual
00:36:16kugeltomers: is the space so low?
00:36:45kugeltry sourceforge maybe, I'm not aware of a limitation there, and they recently added git
00:36:46wookey_OK. It wasn't in the 'wps tags' section.
00:37:14kugelwookey_: feel free to add it :)

00:41:27tomerslinuxstb. Yes, but I prefer someone review it first. I got the keymap for E200 only.
00:41:48kugelCan I already control media monkey with my e200 then? :>
00:41:54linuxstbtomers: Of course. But that's done by posting patches to flyspray.
00:42:11gevaertstomers: may e helpful
00:42:28kugelJdGordon|: Ok, so I'll change it
00:42:33tomersI set my git repository so I can have incremental patches. Do you want me to put my whole code in one patch?
00:42:49JdGordon|kugel: changing what?
00:43:08kugelto not go back to the settings after selecting a theme (actually a .cfg)
00:43:20wookey_sorry if this is a common question but how close is e200v2 support? Someone asked my to recommend a rockboxable player last week and I wasn;t sure what a good answer was...?
00:43:32scorchenot close enough ;)
00:43:37wookey_it looks from the web like things are fairly well progressed
00:43:57wookey_I assume if you buy an e200 these days you always get a new one?
00:44:00gevaertsthey are, but there apparently are some nasty problems left
00:44:08froggymanmaybe recommend a gigabeast S?

00:46:16wookey_gevaerts: in theory yes. In practice I've got an awful lot of other things I'm supposed to be hacking.
00:46:28kugelgevaerts: I can't even spot the fix :/
00:46:49kugelah, got it!
00:47:05wookey_but if I can do anything quick then I'm happy to help out
00:47:24wookey_Has anyone done anyting about putting rbutil in debian?
00:47:48wookey_that;s somethign I could do very easily, and it seems like it would be useful
00:48:30kugelwell, it only depends on you getting access to the repo. rbutil doesn't have dependencies if built the default way
00:48:30gevaertsthere has been some talk about that every now and then, but nothing practical has happened.
00:48:32tomersgevaerts: Done. Sorry for being a coding-style ass
00:49:23gevaertsIt does change a bit faster than debian stable releases though, so my guess would be that it's best suited for volatile. Two year old versions are unlikely to be useful for anyone
00:50:51CIA-38New commit by kugel (r20913): Don't go back to the settings after selecting a .cfg via the theme or cfg browser, as it's done for fonts.
00:51:49kugelvolatile isn't mean for packages that are updated regulary for new features
00:52:32wookey_gevaerts: doesn;t rbutil go and download the newsest build of rb itself so it should remain useful for quite some time?
00:52:56wookey_and newer versions can be in testing/unstable/experimental
00:53:09kugelI think the best would be to use the regular package system, but also provide debs on our side
00:53:20wookey_kugel: that's normally best
00:53:32kugelI figured :P
00:53:58wookey_well I'm checking it out now. If I do anything useful I'll send it back.
00:54:04kugelafter the initial built, building debs is really trivial
00:54:06gevaertswookey_: it should, but we've had a lot of changes at about every release to keep things working, so I don't know. Maybe talk to bluebrother or domonoky about this (who both managed not to be here right now :)
00:54:34kugelfor rbutil at least as I expect, without having dependencies
00:54:48gevaertsOf course the next debian release isn't for this week, so maybe things on our side stabilise enough by then to make this practical
00:55:23wookey_no dependencies? but it's a QT app? You mean the whole thing is built as a huge static binary?
00:55:24linuxstbkugel: rbutil does have dependencies - Qt at least...
00:55:35kugelit's built statically
00:55:44linuxstbwookey_: Currently, yes. But that wouldn't make sense for a .deb
00:55:45wookey_that won't be allowed for a real debian package
00:55:59gevaertsit also won't be needed
00:56:02 Quit Thundercloud (Remote closed the connection)
00:56:04kugelthe qt parts it needs are integrated. wookey_, if you consider <10 as huge, then yes :)
00:56:04wookey_you can do that yourselves of course, and distribute it as a deb
00:56:09 Quit ender1 (" I will not strike a bargain with a demonic being then attempt to double-cross it simply because I feel like being contrary.")
00:56:33wookey_I did notice it was rather a fat binary :-)
00:56:41kugelas I said, it doesn't have dependencies if you built it the "default way", which is statically for now :)
00:57:08 Join sevil [0] (n=46ec211a@gateway/web/cgi-irc/
00:57:19gevaertskugel: not really. You need a static qt for that, which isn't the default as far as I can remember
00:57:32wookey_So it sounds like packaging which allowed both static (for rocxkbox website distribution and easy install-for-all) and kosher debian builds for the distro would make sense
00:57:37kugelI mean default as in our way
00:57:39gevaertsThe released binaries are static, but they are a pain to build
00:58:02gevaertswookey_: for packages, I'd go dynamic all the way

01:04:40sevil-NATASHello Everybody! I had just a quick Q for all you crazy rockboxers. Is it possible to use rockbox to overclock your MP3 player's CPU?

01:05:51scorcheyou will just get less battery life, a hotter device, possibly instability, etc
01:05:51JdGordon|why cant we have it so a button clears the splash?
01:06:02sevil-NATASCould it make DOOM go faster?
01:07:04gevaertswe don't actually have datasheets for some of the CPUs. If you don't know the maximum rated speed of a CPU, is it even possible to knowingly overclock it?
01:07:13 Quit Zambezi (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
01:07:41DataGhostyes, hence OVERclock
01:08:14LambdaCalculus37Overclocking the CPU of a DAP is generally a bad idea.
01:08:28sevil-NATASWhy is thaat?
01:08:32DataGhosteven a TI-83 can be overclocked, up to the point that CPU and memory are out of sync and the thing starts throwing garbage all over... but hey, it's overclocked
01:08:53gevaertswhat's the point?
01:09:18LambdaCalculus37DataGhost: That's called "damaging your device".
01:09:43JdGordon|we could go to eleventy billion hertz....
01:09:43DataGhostI know, just saying that it can be done way beyond spec
01:09:44pixelmaJdGordon|: I don' know, but I imagine it can be quite annoying sometimes (same reason I turn off the erase dynamic playlist warning), and not sure but it could be more likely you "click" it away too quickly by accident (although if you don't read fast enough now...)
01:10:06DataGhostI never said it was a good idea anywhere
01:10:12gevaertsDataGhost: we don't *have* the spec for some of the devices, so we can't go beyond it
01:10:23DataGhostheh semi-good point
01:10:37DataGhostyou'll still probably go beyond the spec the manufacturer set even though you don't know it
01:10:51JdGordon|pixelma: right, but if you are watching it then why do you need to wait for it to disappear if you know what its saying? i dont tihnk people would react too slowly and have wrog presses
01:10:53LambdaCalculus37Besides, for something like Doom or Rockboy, what's needed more is to optimize the code.
01:11:04LambdaCalculus37But no one interested in doing so has stepped forward.
01:11:12gevaertsanyway, the code is there, feel free to change it
01:12:09linuxstbgevaerts: We can go beyond the spec, just not knowingly...
01:12:18kugelJdGordon|: having a button to cancel a splash is easy
01:12:19Unhelpfulanother angle on the image load buffer question... i'm assuming the "end" of the free buffer space isn't going to move in the middle of buffering? it might actually not be so hard to put the buffer there... have a global pointer to it, move it down any time an image will need a larger load buffer than previously requested, and then reset it to the same address as end-of-buffer when the image load queue is cleared. unless somebody who kn
01:12:19Unhelpfulows how the buffer works thinks that that is stupid ;)

01:13:45linuxstbkugel: And what if a user presses a button just after the timeout?
01:13:50Unhelpfulalso, did we ever determine for certain from evilnick's debug info if the problem *is* due to the buffer thread stalling during image load?

01:18:50wookey_OK. I've fixed the manual to have subline tags summary in appendix with link to description. WHere should I send a patch? (or does anyone feel like giving me svn access?)
01:18:52kugelyou mean if you tried to cancel the splash just after it was over?

01:19:57kugelwookey_: flyspray
01:20:27*JdGordon| really doesnt think tyhe accidental presses thing will be an issue
01:20:42JdGordon|the worst case will be usually that the item that triggered the splash will happen again
01:21:25*JdGordon| proposes to make all splashes either 0 or 3s and allow a button to clear it early
01:21:46kugelthat sounds reasonable
01:21:54JdGordon|possibly making the blocking splashes look different to the 0 one
01:22:19pixelmakugel: well if I would have to click it away - imagine moving through the fonts browser, select a font, get a splash which you would have to click away and you want to move down anyways, to maybe select another. And I can't think of any app where I *have to* do something to get rid of the splash

01:36:11BdN3504i just gave away another gigabeat. the person i gave it to, is confused with the navigation, because she always holds the buttons (esp. the select button) too long and is presented with context menus.
01:36:53BdN3504is there anyway, i can prolong the time of the button press until it gets recognized as a long press?
01:37:07Blue_DudeMore specifically, I need to see the waveform about 10 ms ahead of the current sample. And even then it would have to be the waveform *before* voice, keyclicks, beeps, etc.
01:37:25BdN3504which parts of the code would i have to modify?
01:37:48pleasemakev2cfwIs there a gamebody emulator for sansa e200?
01:38:19linuxstbBlue_Dude: Sounds like you need to make the dsp code buffer that amount of audio before passing it into the PCM buffer.

01:46:03pleasemakev2cfwIf I do try the e200 v2 firmware and it makes by device useless, is there any way to return it to normal?
01:47:00linuxstbIt depends what you mean by "useless". But if you install things correctly, there shouldn't be any problems.
01:47:06Unhelpfulkugel: which platform? it should only use overlay on archos, and it stopped playback on those anyway, because it used the audio buffer rather than the plugin buffer for its cache.
01:47:22kugelBlue_Dude: there's a playback speed patch on the tracker that hooks/hacks/whatever into dsp too, maybe you can have a look there
01:47:28kugelUnhelpful: e200
01:47:52Blue_DudeIn order to keep latency down, I don't want to do the whole buffer at once. The buffer is relatively enormous time-wise.
01:47:54pleasemakev2cfw"Even though the bootloader installation is tested, there's always a fair risk of rendering your device useless" should I risk it?

01:49:51Blue_DudeThat's true. I was more concerned about what happens if the user changes the setting on the fly and then has to listen through the whole buffer before hearing the change.

01:51:31kugelthe critical code is well tested and stable
01:51:35Blue_DudeWell, I still need the raw audio before overlays, so I still need to hook into an intermediate step.
01:51:56kugelIMO, the real risk of bricking is next to zero, if you follow the instructions correctly
01:52:08pleasemakev2cfwIMO means what?

15:35:36MarcGuayIs "mp3entry" a bit of a leftover from before other codecs were involved?
15:36:24MarcGuayAnd "id3" as well? It refers to tags generally now?
15:36:24linuxstbIt was wrong even before that - Rockbox supported mp2...
15:36:50ZagorI considered renaming it when I abstracted the metadata code some months back, but I decided it should be a separate step (and I didn't come up with a good name)
15:37:42ZagorMarcGuay: yes, "id3" generally means "track metadata"
15:38:04MarcGuaylinuxstb: Is the WAV stuff in test_codec only needed for the writing to file aspects?
15:38:37linuxstbmt: Do you have many commits left before you have caught up with FS #10182?
15:38:41 Join miepchen^schlaf [0] (
15:38:56MarcGuayZagor: Thanks. That helps a lot.
15:38:57linuxstbMarcGuay: Yes.
15:40:44MarcGuaylinuxstb: And there's nothing in there that actually plays audio, correct? codec_thread_do_callback just passes the data to the codec thread, not the audio?
15:41:22linuxstbmt: Also, I don't know if you see it, but I get the warning "cookdata_fixpoint.h:430: warning: ‘cplscales’ defined but not used"
15:41:23*MarcGuay always seems to find himself back in the nightmare that is playback.c
15:43:45linuxstbMarcGuay: Correct. The "pcmbuf_insert" function is called by the codec to play the audio. test_codec just writes that data to the output wav file (or just drops it).
15:44:05MarcGuaylinuxstb: Thank you.
15:44:21linuxstbI don't know if it's possible for a plugin to write to that pcm buffer - that would seem a nicer way for things to work, than calling pcm_play_data etc
15:44:42*linuxstb wonders why no-one has tried that...
15:44:57MarcGuayI'm amazed no one has tried to create a drumpad before...
15:45:23funmanCould the comment line 951 of ata-sd-pp.c explain filesystem corruption on Sansa e200v1 ?
15:46:06funmanWell that would be only on models with more than one bank (8GB and more)

20:06:28saratogayes we only use a few of those functions, and I bet they could be made faster if cleaned up

20:07:06saratogai once played around with the different bitstream readers in ffmpeg and they made a surprisingly large difference, IIRC the other fast one for arm slowed decoding by a good 5%

20:19:37JdGordon|because its a bug?
20:19:44LloreanOn the Gigabeat S when charging from the actual charger, the status bar and WPS show charging. USB charging gets a plug on the status bar, but the WPS doesn't change.
20:20:10JdGordon|well.. the beast isnt a supported target... try on a supportet target with a current build
20:20:29LloreanWell, the same thing used to happen on the Gigabeat F too.
20:20:31*AlexP slaps JdGordon| :)
20:20:44JdGordon|used to happen? so maybe it doesnt happen in current builds?
20:22:19juane414so about the progress bar, does it not have to be a straight line?
20:22:46AlexPjuane414: IIRC, it can be one of two things
20:23:00AlexPjuane414: a) A bitmap that reveals from left to right
20:23:10JdGordon|depends how you want to do it... you could have ti squigly using a transparent coloured mask in a image (i tinhk there is an example in the wiki)
20:23:28AlexPjuane414: or b) you can use conditionals to display a different bitmap each time, but then it is less accurate
20:23:46juane414i see
20:24:15juane414how would that line with the conditionals look?
20:24:19AlexPb) is les accurate as you are limited to a maximum number of bitmaps, so it only changes every 100/number of images %

21:43:47evilnickIf it's 4GB then that implies it's corrupt... AFAIK 4GB is the largest filesize supported by FAT32

21:52:37gevaertsyour choice. I just want to make sure that all files are correct
21:54:48Jeroen___No dice :/
21:55:06Jeroen___What is interesting though is that it will attempt to play the next file in the list
21:55:28Jeroen___and even though I know it's a flac file, in the 'now playing' it is listed as a .mp3
21:56:50gevaertsCan you play the file from your PC (from the sansa drive)? Maybe it got corrupted from the filesystem corruption as well?

22:03:57Torneno idea, i'm afraid

22:05:10gevaertsWell, rockbox doesn't like flac with id3, that's for sure. But the fact that evilnick can play it on his sansa seems to prove that this is not the problem...
22:06:28*gevaerts suspects that chkdsk didn't clean up everything perfectly this time...

22:08:27Tornewell, if someone else with the same player can play the file and you can't
22:08:35Tornethen either your build is broken or there's something wrong with the player, ya'd think
22:08:42Jeroen___Just to be clear..which files? What happens to the original firmware if I do so?
22:09:07gevaertsthe original firmware doesn't sit on the data partition, so that won't be touched
22:09:11TorneJeroen___: rockbox, and the files you are trying to play

22:16:52Tornewell, yah
22:17:17Torneif it gets committed i'll happily try and write up a more mortal-friendly description for the wiki somewhere
22:17:18linuxstbFor some reason, your patch doesn't apply cleanly (it applies with "fuzz 2")

22:17:24TorneOh, er

22:22:18TorneOh, sorry about that
22:22:26Tornei generated the diff on my work pc i think
22:22:28linuxstbIt's OK, patch spots that.
22:22:33rushfanHello. When I try to build my database using the latest release on an iPod Video 64mb, it gets stuck when it says "... 1441 found" everytime.
22:22:35Tornevia the high tech method of copy and paste
22:22:48rushfanIs there anything I can do about this/at least see exactly what file it is looking at that moment?
22:22:59Tornelemme redo the patch in bzr real quick just to be sure
22:23:26linuxstbTorne: Hmm, I'm wondering if that Rockbox string will interfere with mi4 targets (Sansas etc)
22:23:38linuxstb(in crt0-pp.S) - it's not just used for ipods.
22:23:48Tornei believe it just gets overwritten

22:24:28*Torne diffs the diffs :)
22:24:36evilnickrushfan: The best way is a binary search. Take half the songs off the player and try to build the database. If it succeeds then take the second half (of now known good songs) off and put the first half back on. Rinse and repeat.
22:25:32Tornethe one i posted on the tracker has lost all the trailing whitespace on lines

22:32:53rushfanevilnick: could it be getting stuck on a corrupted mp3 file or something?
22:33:04linuxstbTorne: I've just tried a Sansa e200 build - the "Rockbox" string isn't being overwritten, but I can't think of a reason it being there would be a problem...
22:33:17Tornei meant at boot time
22:33:25evilnickIt's possible. Or perhaps only the tags are corrupted?
22:33:43Tornebut i'm not very clear on what all the mi4 stuff is
22:33:52Torneso, it might be good if someone tried it i guess
22:34:02rushfanevilnick: could be actually
22:34:05evilnickrushfan: Maybe you should run chkdsk on it before going ahead with the binary search.
22:34:32evilnickrushfan: Also, very big tags (like embedded AA) can have weird effects on the database (and on playback)
22:34:37rushfanwell it made it pas 1141 this time :|
22:34:52linuxstbTorne: Or we could just play it safe and #ifdef IPOD_ARCH that change to crt0-pp.S

22:35:41rushfanevilnick: can it read the tags off of m4a files nicely?

22:35:52rushfanCause I have some (not drm) m4a files off of itunes
22:36:24evilnickrushfan: Yes it can. Anything that is the standard form of tagging for that format of music file.

22:59:36mtHorscht : yes
23:01:45saratogamt: is the rm parser in rm2wav.c?
23:02:21mtsaratoga : yes. I should rename it to rm.c though, didn't notice :)
23:02:46saratogaif its all in one file sepearting it from libcook should be pretty easy i think
23:03:49linuxstbWell, for use in Rockbox, the parser needs rewriting to parse a memory buffer, rather than read small parts at a time from a file handle.
23:04:19linuxstbAlthough the metadata parsing version may need to.
23:04:33mtah yes, all in one file. I'll just have to take rm.[c/h] out of libcook and modify the #includes in cook and main.
23:07:21mtlinuxstb : But this too falls under ''porting to rockbox''. I think saratoga means just getting the parser out of the way. (or at least that's what I mean ;) )
23:10:55 Quit Thundercloud (Remote closed the connection)
23:12:23saratogathe parser looks fairly compact, could you just put it into apps/codecs/rm.c ?
23:13:08JdGordon|pixelma: oh, can you have a look at the manual patch in 10198 please? (and test the actual patch if you want?) :)
23:15:10mtsaratoga : I could move rm.c/h to /codecs. (though I only see *.c's there ? )
23:15:23linuxstbsaratoga: That would make it harder to support other codecs. It would be better in a lib. But my point was that the existing code is possibly not worth moving, but rather a new parser can be written (based heavily on the existing code) instead of moving rm2wav.c
23:15:55saratogawhats the advantage of a lib? all rm codecs will need to pass through rm.c anyway
23:16:19linuxstbNo they won't.

23:54:43JdGordon|it interferes as much as svn does with buttons...

23:56:56pixelmaof course it doesn't tell me much, just skimming the diff
23:57:06JdGordon|right, so the change there is press any button instead of a specific one
23:57:12JdGordon|but the setting might not be on ondio
23:58:28pixelmaif it defaults to USB (data) connection without button press...
