#rockbox log for 2009-06-11

00:01:32 Quit jgarvey ("Leaving")
00:03:54pixelmaI just tested RbUtil a bit after reading the forums. I also see the "error 404" when hitting the "download" button in the manual tab (the "live" options, reading the PDF and open the HTML in the browser seem to be ok). And I wonder why it wants to save the downloaded files in the root of my player and doesn't let me specify it
00:04:57pixelmamaybe there's reasoning behind that which I just can't see currently
00:06:25pixelmacan I help tracing down the error? (bluebrother, domonoky)
00:06:56bluebrotherpixelma: lemme check if I can reproduce it (I really need to get the user trace finished)
00:07:11domonokypixelma: which target ?
00:07:18 Quit evilnick_7 (" ajax IRC Client")
00:07:21*pixelma also spotted a small typo in the german "first installation" dialog box
00:08:01pixelmasomewhere in that sentence there is a "...umd das.."
00:09:02pixelmaI mean the dialog box when first opening the Utility, not installing Rockbox
00:10:04bluebrotherhmm, c200 manual downloads fine for me, both pdf and html
00:10:07domonokydownloading the c200 manual works fine for me.
00:10:56pixelmamaybe one of the download servers then?
00:11:25domonokybut the manual for h120 doesnt work ! (manual is named manual-h100)
00:12:41domonokymanual for ipodmini1g also doesnt work. again naming issue.
00:13:05pixelmaoh forgot to mention - tested version 1.2 and 1.2.1 on XP
00:14:04domonokyand there is more: iaudiom3, no manual available ?
00:15:17pixelmano. No manual available for the M3 (if I could only find out how to make the button tables have different amount of columns)
00:15:53 Quit flydutch ("/* empty */")
00:16:41pixelmamore or less "dynamically", without to much effort so that the code stays maintainable
00:16:59notlisteningto make rbutil do i need qt4-dev-tools?
00:17:53pixelmadomonoky, bluebrother: I also tested with my OndioFM and still get 404 when trying to download the manual
00:18:33notlisteningI tried the e200 voice files and got a 505 error also not sure if that is related?
00:18:36*bluebrother curses the naming mess
00:18:42bluebrotherwe really need to clean that up
00:19:18bluebrotherpossible but not necessarily.
00:19:59bluebrotherthough I think it's likely
00:20:00*domonoky tested again with the release binarys (instead of svn) and also get 404
00:20:22notlisteningwell i will keep trying it and report as i go ;)
00:20:27bluebrotherdomonoky: still c200?
00:20:41domonokyyes, also others..
00:20:52pixelmadomonoky, bluebrother: I just saw that the Utility tells me "couldn't download", so without the target string part
00:21:10bluebrotherc200 stable just worked for me.
00:21:22pixelmaerr... "downloading"
00:21:34pixelmaand then the error message of course
00:21:40 Join robin0800 [0] (
00:22:49bluebrotherhmm, maybe it didn't finish downloading the build info?
00:22:52domonokyvoice download is also broken because of the naming issue. (and its still broken in svn)
00:22:55pixelma(translated back from memory and missing some parts) but the point was that there is no target string

00:26:55notlisteningtried that umm ;) i sec

00:27:45pixelmaoh, it does shortly but then goes back to the normal list, maybe I was just expecting something else
00:29:08pixelmashould the target be displayed behind the drive letter then?

01:36:42kugelJdGordon|: martin ritter's comment, and the fact that I just can't reproduce it anymore (tried so for ~30 min on all of my targets)
01:37:04JdGordon|yes, but what about other problems it might cause?
01:37:24kugelI haven't noticed problems
01:37:34JdGordon|so? doesnt mean there arnt any
01:38:01JdGordon|playback is a bit too important/big to just commit a quick fix without fully making sure its safe
01:38:19kugelI'm quite confident the fix is proper, I'll take all blame if it isn't
01:38:55 Join HellDragon [0] (
01:39:23kugeltrying to reproduce it for 30min and using the player in every day use for 2 days without any problems is pretty much making sure imo.
01:39:58kugelevery day use is to listen to music whenever I get the chance to it, some hours each day
01:40:23JdGordon|thats not testing at all....

01:42:04kugelI did....

01:44:15kugelIMO this is a major bug which should be fixed until the release. and the fix will get better testing in SVN
01:44:38JdGordon|you understand that the release is supposed to be stable right?
01:44:45kugelexactly my reasoning
01:45:01JdGordon|which means you dont put in possibly dodgey fixes for an issue which is known
01:45:10JdGordon|and not dangerous
01:45:21kugelit's not a dodgey fix at all

03:14:05froggymanis it currently possible to have a set font for the WPS and have a seperate font for the menus and viewers?
03:15:08LloreanUnless you want the WPS to use the system font. In the WPS you can choose to use the system font or the user font, menus are always the user font.
03:16:01froggymanhow would you set a system font?
03:16:12LloreanYou can't set it.
03:16:28LloreanIt's the builtin font.
03:17:01froggymani meant "can it be changed, if so how might I do that"

03:32:02Unhelpfulah. this sounds more like a case for multifont than configurable system font.
03:32:16froggymanwell, I want one font for viewing text but the one I prefer for that doesnt work well with most WPSs
03:32:25froggymanso yeah multifont
03:33:24LloreanThe problem with multifont is that the current patch for it works, but isn't done the right way.
03:33:56LloreanThat usually results in "the people who want the feature are generally satisfied to use the patch, the people who want to see it included but don't use the feature aren't really interested in rewriting the whole thing"

04:21:18MariTrunkI just have few questions
04:21:20Llorean|StanG|: And everything else about it is normal? The original firmware works fine?
04:21:51LloreanIt's not mounted read-only?
04:22:05MariTrunkdoes rockbox support drag and drop files/folders from windows explorer or do I have to use another program to copy mp3s?
04:22:15 Quit perrikwp (" ajax IRC Client")
04:22:22LloreanMariTrunk: Rockbox doesn't care how your files get on the player.

04:23:53MariTrunkLlorean: so if I have installed rockbox, I can just connect the usb cable and it should open a folder will all my files and I can drag and drop new files, as well has copy them back to the PC from my ipod?
04:24:09LloreanMariTrunk: Whether a folder opens up depends on how your computer's set up.
04:24:25LloreanIt'll work just like an external hard disk.
04:25:26MariTrunkanother question: is the rockbox firmware as fast as the ipod firmware? and is as easy to use?
04:26:10LloreanI don't even know what you mean by "fast"
04:26:32LloreanAnd "easy to use" depends entirely on your own expectations. I'd suggest reading the manual and learning about it.
04:28:15MariTrunkfast meaning, scrolling is fast, no lagging... not like click a button and 5 secs later something happens. My sister had Philips GoGear and the UI was so crappy and slow....
04:28:49LloreanIt's generally pretty fast, yes.
04:32:16MariTrunkis there a way to customize it so that it looks exactly like the ipod firmware but still allows me to drag and drop files to and from my PC without using iTunes?
04:32:36LloreanThere's no simple way to do that, no.
04:32:58LloreanYou can customize it to look similar, but Rockbox has a lot of unique options, so there's a lot more there than there would be in the Apple firmware.

11:25:30GodEaterdoesn't it has an ATA bridge chip in it ?
11:25:58psycho_maniacbut really all i have to do is just plug the thing in and i hit play/pause/ect?
11:26:00*pixelma deletes question - only saw a HID keymap added to the beast, not the F anyways
11:26:17GodEaterpsycho_maniac: please re-read what I said. It doesn't work on the Gigabeat F.
11:27:05psycho_maniacalright but if i had a player that did run your usb stack
11:27:27GodEaterpretty much yes
11:27:35GodEaterit's harder to use if you load in "charging only" mode
11:27:49GodEatersince then you can't use the controls directly on the player, you have to go via the debug menu
11:28:32*pixelma had to set up the keyboard shortcuts (assigning the multimedia buttons) in foobar2000
11:28:46GodEaterthey just "worked" for me in Winamp
11:28:53GodEaterdidn't have to set up anything
11:29:14psycho_maniachmm. i read you had to setup the multimedia keys on winamp but there usually now set up by default.
11:29:21pixelmajust to stress that it also depends on your setup, maybe there are also differences whether you are using a multimedia keyboard anyways or not
11:30:58psycho_maniacsucks gigabeat s wont be in rockbox 3.3 :(

11:33:22psycho_maniac"It is hoped to include the Gigabeat S in the 3.3 release."
11:34:45markunGodEater: The Gigabeat F also has USB host and device controllers, but you can only use them through the dock (and our stack doesn't yet work on it)
11:36:39GodEatermarkun: so I was half right =/
11:37:36GodEaterpsycho_maniac: it's nothing to do with bugs
11:37:43GodEaterit's to do with how we distribute the bootloader
11:37:46GodEaterthere are licensing issues
11:38:24psycho_maniacillegal or legal issues?
11:40:00GodEaterthe issue is that the single bootloader (i.e. will only load Rockbox) only works on some devices it seems. The dual boot one (i.e. boots OF and Rockbox) is way more reliable, but relies on us distributing toshiba's code.

11:41:19linuxstbpsycho_maniac: That's not the point - the problem is that the single-boot bootloader is unreliable...
11:41:46psycho_maniaci know that wasnt the point. i just wanted to say it.
11:45:36psycho_maniacis there a patch for this, "Increased battery life on some targets by preventing WPS from updating while backlight is off. " i remember reading about it on the tracker but i cant seem to find it. i wanna know if my player is supported.

13:14:22LloreanRather than put together a site, maybe a tagnavi customization tool might make more sense?
13:15:10GodEaterLlorean: I think it would be nice to at least have a place where people can collect them. I'm sure some people have done some interesting things with them, but without an easy way to share them it's hard to tell since we can't see them.
13:15:19LloreanI mean, I know they're immensely flexible, but I think outside of the standard range of things already in it, the majority of other filters one might add will be personal use cases.
13:15:37GodEaterperhaps so - but some of those cases might be shared by some people
13:16:01GodEaterI just think it might prove interesting
13:16:09LloreanWe could start with a poll as to how many people have modified tagnavi, and ask those that answer "yes" to summarize what they added/changed?
13:16:19GodEatersure, that's a good start
13:16:38LloreanGet some feedback at least. We might find some improvements we could incorporate into the default.
13:16:55GodEaterI was just looking at the few we have on the page in the wiki

13:17:58GodEaterExample 4 is the one I'm referring to

13:18:25GodEaterI know he's a huge fan :)
13:19:07LloreanDidn't he contribute the current tagnavi?
13:19:20*Llorean doesn't like the term "Rockbox Browser" as the menu title, but that's just a minor nitpick.

13:20:02GodEaterwell clearly we could make some minor changes

13:34:49pondlifeBy my reckoning we should be branching today - anyone know when this is likely to happen (or if I'm mistaken).?
13:35:49Lloreankugel: I guess for the logs. RButil releases generally aren't "for" Rockbox releases (or shouldn't be) but rather for when something is fixed/improved/added to rbutil that warrants a release. I think it was decided at some point to keep them more or less independent of Rockbox releases and on its own "when it seems needed" pattern.

13:44:03*Llorean is slightly disappointed, but that gives us time to see how many iPods explode with the charging patch before we make it "official"

14:08:59Nico_Pkugel: and it looks correct to me, although I haven't worked with that code in some time. I trust that it fixes the problem and it doesn't look like it would cause any harm in other situations
14:09:31kugelNico_P: I tried hard to reproduce but couldn't (I could easily reproduce it before) so I'm fairly sure the fix is correct, but JdGordon seemed to have doubts
14:11:02kugelthat was my thinking too
14:18:13Nico_Pso it seems the beast won't make it into 3.3, will it?
14:19:04LloreanWe still need a reliable install. The single boot image doesn't work for all beasts, and I'm not even sure there's a way to identify in advance which ones it will fail on.
14:19:26LloreanIf it does fail, there's no easy way to recover them without an OF image (which, if we had readily available, would make dual-boot images no problem and negate the problem in the first place)

14:22:21Nico_Prbutil support would be nice at least, even if there's no stable release
14:22:57LloreanRBUtil support would be great, though we'd need a big red warning about how your device may be unrecoverable if you don't acquire an OF image first.
14:23:02kugelare we having a new rbutil release for 3.3?
14:23:13Lloreankugel: I left you a message in the logs about it when you asked earlier.
14:23:30LloreanRBUtil gets releases when RBUtil changes or gets fixed, they're not really in parallel with Rockbox releases.
14:23:32kugeloh, I thought it didn't come through
14:24:04LloreanI haven't heard anything specifically new (no new targets this time around) for a release. Except maybe if we build it on a newer QT it might fix the SAPI issues?

17:30:50Lloreanpondlife: So just duplicate the code in every single plugin, and just put the enable/disable in the core. :-P But in all seriousness, timestretch is a pretty significant feature for audiobook readers (and probably for voice, if it would let us set voice-speeds on target instead of in-voicefile)

19:18:02funmanI just found that we don't check if the data transfer succeeded when selecting the bank
19:18:49funmanThat could very well be a/the source of problems people mention on the forums : FAT driver using a 2/4/8GB partition, and SD driver only having access to the first 1GB

19:21:11notlisteningbertrik, i have some info on that for you just need to add it to the forumn as i posted it in the wrong place before
19:21:35bertrikfunman, about the clip button driver: I think we can just call button_read_device three times at initialisation to get an initial state and we can stop using the kernel tick
19:22:03bertriknotlistening, positive news I hope
19:22:18funmanbertrik: that's 1 more line of code than sleep() button_read_device() ;)
19:23:04funmanthe kernel tick is already present, but interrupts were enabled only when needed (for the storage driver)
19:23:26bertrikoh I thought the kernel tick was done in interrupt context (from the timer interrupt)
19:23:37pixelmafunman: I thought you wanted to respect the freeze?
19:24:12funmanbertrik: true, the interrupt doesn't happen before we enable_irq(), but the tick is functional
19:24:19pixelmaor is it not going to affect other Sansas

23:32:06*linuxstb wonders if that VS1053 DSP comes with docs...
23:32:52Unhelpfullinuxstb: you're thinking it might be somewhat *less* of an albatross on the projects neck if we could write codecs for it? :)
23:33:20linuxstbUnhelpful: Could be fun...
23:33:47linuxstbThere is an obvious lack of any lossless formats.
23:34:00Bagdermidi! ;-)

23:34:21Unhelpfuli wonder how well lossless formats work on DSP architectures. they tend to use rather different techniques than lossy.
23:34:44Bagderit claims wav support
23:35:55bluebrotheramazing. Using beastpatcher on WXP to send the Rockbox bootloader results in the device rejecting it but works using a dualboot nk.bin. Using beastpatcher on linux and it works fine. WTF...?

23:45:01funmanbertrik: the sansa ams use the timer in 16 bits mode because it "ought to be enough for everybody"

23:47:04bertrikfunman, using it in 32-bit mode makes all of the prescaler stuff unnecessary so the code even gets smaller
23:47:37bertrikI see only advantages in using it in 32-bit mode (assuming the datasheet is correct)

23:53:57bertrikfunman, I think the sansa clip alternative button driver is ready for commit, do you still see any problems / objections to it?
23:54:38funmanI think I supposed 32bits operation would be more complex for the hardware, just by seeing 16bits is the default.
23:58:41bertrikit's a mystery to me why it even has a 16-bit mode
