00:08:58CIA-71New commit by bertrik (r21735): S5L8700: use wakeup_wait/wakeup_signal instead of polling for i2c communication
00:09:52BagderZagor: I think we should let the client exit if it had no server-traffic in 30 seconds or so
00:11:33ZagorBagder: yeah
00:11:54Zagorhave you looked at the server ping logic?
00:12:11Bagderno, but I think the problem is client-side
00:12:19Bagderie it doesn't "see" the server drop off
00:12:24Bagderso it just sits there waiting
00:12:37Zagorbut the server doesn't disconnect either, does it?
00:12:46BagderI don't know
00:12:54Bagderit should
00:12:59Zagoranyway, it can't hurt checking on both sides
00:14:38Zagor"make zip" fails for jjim. that's why there are missing builds in the size table. I
00:14:47ZagorI'm adding a check for that now.
00:15:36Bagderthat reminds me of a 'test' option for the client
00:16:31Bagderbut perhaps probing for most of the tools at startup should be enough

00:19:09Bagderkugel: when another client completed it
00:19:50kugelWhy are clients getting the same build in the middle of the round? I thought this speculative parallel build was about when the round ends
00:20:15Zagorit starts as soon as all builds are handed out once
00:20:30kugelI could easily have two builds, but now I get 3 of 4 killed
00:20:34Bagderit'll happen pretty soon as some clients are really fast
00:21:19Bagderit's all about how the builds are distributed to what clients
00:21:28Bagderand that's why a better speed meter is useful
00:21:39kugelShouldn't it give builds that have not been assigned yet, and only assign builds of other clients if no builds are left?
00:22:18Zagorthat's what it does
00:22:31Bagderit gives the builds with the lowest number of assigns
00:22:39Bagderthat aren't completed
00:23:28kugeloh, I think all my builds got killed
00:23:38Zagoryep, looks like it
00:24:00ZagorI'll be adding some stats info so we can measure how much cpu time was "wasted"
00:24:37kugelI mean, instead of giving someone my ipodnano build, the other cliend should rather have taken what's next (or even last) in my list
00:24:54 Quit soap ()
00:24:54Bagderkugel: you need to read my explanation
00:24:57Bagderwe already do that
00:25:41Bagderwe hand out builds in a fine order to the clients we think are most suitable
00:25:50Bagderthe order is pretty easy to understand
00:26:02kugelyea, that's why I get ipod nano and ipodvideo64mb?
00:26:12kugelwith lowest bogomips?
00:26:42Bagderwhat are you suggesting?
00:27:05kugelwhy am I getting the hardest build if it's meant to suit the clients?
00:27:19Bagderthey're not
00:27:20Zagorkugel: you don't. your low bogomips means you don't get the heaviest builds in the first handout.
00:27:46kugelipodnano was my first build, ipodvideo64mb the 2nd
00:28:26kugelthat was the first handout, and those are some of the hardest, aren't they?
00:28:55Bagderipodnano is yes
00:28:55kugelI actually never got a quick bootloder or so
00:28:59Bagderipodvideo64mb is not
00:29:08BagderSyrius: what are you talkign about?
00:29:50Bagderbut yes kugel should not get ipodnano first I'd say, if joined from the start
00:29:50Zagorkugel: you're right. It looks like the order is reversed :-)
00:30:10Zagorkugel got the heaviest, gevaerts the easiest!
00:30:13gevaertsYou mean I'm not going to get all the bootloaders anymore?
00:30:16Bagderthat also explains why gevaerts gets to many bootloaders
00:30:23*gevaerts is not happy!

00:33:08*JdGordon| thinks he remembers some discussion about wanting to give big builds to slow clients
00:33:25ZagorJdGordon|: why would we want that?
00:33:32gevaertsJdGordon|: maybe in the old system
00:33:40kugelalthough, my initial point remains. My build was cancelled 4-5min before the build round ended. It seems to me that the handout doesn't prioritise builds that another client already started lowest
00:33:47JdGordon|yeah, it doesnt make much sense.. but I'm sure i rmember the discussion
00:34:09krazykiti can see the reasoning on a relatively small fleet of computers
00:34:24krazykityou get several builds out of the faster ones in the time it takes the slow one to do the one
00:34:29Bagderkugel: why not? we have very fast clients involved
00:34:38kugelshouldn't it work like: client requests new build -> give him a unhanded build; if there's no unhanded build give him a unstarted instead, if there's no unstarted give him a started one
00:34:46gevaertsIt does make some sense in the old system, in that it could avoid them starting a second big build
00:34:51rasherkugel: That's what it does
00:34:58rasherWell, barring any more sorting errors
00:35:12Bagderthe list is sorted on "handed out count" and then on "weight", excluding the ones already completed
00:35:27bertrikgevaerts machine is just very fast and probably responsible for a lot of kills
00:35:34kugelit doesn't recognize already started builds?
00:35:44Bagder"handed out count" is exactly that
00:35:46gevaertsI must say that I haven't seen many killed builds on it :)
00:35:47Bagdergiven to a client
00:35:57Zagorkugel has a point. we don't know when builds are started, only handed out. that means the builds we hand out again are likely builds that are already running on other targets rather than those in their queue
00:36:01rasherBagder: handed out count also includes builds that haven't been started yet though
00:36:02kugelhanded out != started. I mean started as in actively compiling
00:36:21Bagderwe have no concept of "started" in the server
00:36:24*rasher still doens't quite understand the need for the queue
00:36:40Bagderrasher: upload in the bg is the first explanation of course
00:36:56rasherBagder: Why doesn't the client just request a new build before uploading?
00:37:01 Join webguest93 [0] (n=d8870b32@gateway/web/cgi-irc/
00:37:07kugelBagder: if we wouldn't hand out 3 builds at once at the start, then handed out == started
00:37:08rasherOr after starting the upload. Whichever
00:37:16Bagderwell, because clients don't request builds at all ;-)
00:37:21 Quit webguest93 (Client Quit)
00:37:26kugelwasn't that the plan, initially?
00:37:30rasherThis seems sub-optimal
00:37:32Bagderkugel: and why would that improve anything?
00:37:40BagderI don't get it
00:37:48 Quit HBK (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
00:37:57rasherBagder: Because there's less of a chance that a client gets its running build killed, rather just one picked from its queue
00:38:01 Join HBK [0] (
00:38:14Bagderin theory perhaps
00:38:19BagderI doubt it is like that in real life
00:38:19rasherI *really* don't understand why the client just doesn't say "I'm ready for another one"
00:38:26kugelas Zagor said, it's not unlikely to hand a build out that a client is about to complete, instead of giving one that's only in their queue
00:38:46Bagderbut it's not a likely scenario
00:38:56kugelBagder: my ipodnano build was killed near the end even though I had 2 other not even started builds
00:39:01Bagderclients do the builds in the order they get them
00:39:03ZagorI think we'll need a "gimme more" command anyway, once we start doing single-thread builds.
00:39:24Bagderkugel: that doesn't prove anything
00:39:32Bagderon the contrary
00:39:32rasherBagder: But why risk it? Why have any builds that are not started in the queue?
00:39:43Bagderit's not a risk
00:40:05 Quit FlynDice_ (Remote closed the connection)
00:40:13Bagderthe one you've worked on the longest is the one your building/uploading
00:40:13rasherWell, it's not as fast as it could be if you kill a build even if there are unstarted builds around
00:40:30Bagder_that_ one was the highest prio for you to complete
00:40:31Zagorkugel: what happens at one client doesn't really reflect what happens at the server
00:40:32Bagderand you failed
00:40:42Bagderit doesn't matter if you introduce a command
00:40:50Dhraakellianwrong window
00:40:56kugelgiving a build that's currently compiling instead of a queued one is just illogical
00:41:03rasherkugel: agreed
00:41:12Bagderits perfectly logical
00:41:16JdGordon|no its not... it could be stuck on a really slow server
00:41:22ZagorI agree too. I don't quite see your point Bagder
00:41:35kugelJdGordon: that's no problem
00:41:42 Join AndyIL [0] (i=AndyI@
00:41:44JdGordon|you could add some logic to only do that if the <score> is better though
00:41:45rasherJdGordon|: So what? If there are other builds around, let the slow server finish rather than *wasting* the time that server's spent on the build
00:41:59kugelif there's no queued build left, currently compiling builds would be handed out. whoever finished first wins
00:41:59JdGordon|ah, yeah ok
00:42:01Bagdermy point isn't so much that I dislike the idea of changing this
00:42:22Bagderit's mostly that these guys argue as if this is something that'll make a big diff
00:42:33Bagderand I don't believe that
00:42:42bertrikit's not about spending time most efficiently, but getting the builds done quickest
00:42:43JdGordon|only one way to find out for sure though :D
00:42:44kugelI believe it does.
00:42:49rasherIt just seems more complex and less efficient than simply "give me a build" "okay"
00:42:53ZagorBagder: well, possibly not. but in theory it can make a difference.
00:42:54kugelI often see even my first build getting killed
00:43:09BagderZagor: yes, and I'm not against it
00:43:10rasherIt won't make the round end twice as fast
00:43:22rasherBut it'll invariably shave off some amount of time
00:43:25gevaertslet's first see what happens with the fixed sorting
00:43:43Bagderrasher: the thing is that we don't add things we don't need, hence we never had such a command
00:43:47Zagorgevaerts: well the underlying issue will remain
00:43:57Bagderthe point with a queue was to allow the client to build in parallell
00:44:10Bagderfor single-threaded builds, such as manuals and voices
00:44:14rasherBagder: I don't see why this is an argument? The client can still build in parallell surely
00:44:24rasherJust ask for a new build when it's ready..
00:44:25kugelI recall this command was sort of planned anyway
00:44:29gevaertsZagor: of course, but I expect the symptoms to look a bit different
00:44:34BagderI'm just explaining
00:44:43ZagorBagder: but with 8-core servers, we'd need 8 builds in queue. It would be simpler to just have the client say "I can take one more, please"
00:44:47Bagderas we saw no need for such a command, we made none
00:44:54BagderI'm just explaining
00:45:07gevaertsThe server maintains a queue per client, right?
00:45:17rasherI guess I'm just slightly surprised you came up with the most complicated solution
00:45:24BagderI disagree
00:45:28kugelI actually thought the clients requesting builds was one of the main ideas initially
00:45:30*JdGordon| also diagrees
00:45:37JdGordon|there is always a mroe complicated solution
00:45:40Zagoruh, the most complicated? I can think of _lots_ more complicated solutions! :)
00:45:45Bagderkugel: it wasn't from me at least
00:45:54Zagorme neither
00:46:05kugelthen my memory is wrong
00:46:06gevaertsMaybe you could increase the allocation count for the first build on every queue?
00:46:08rasherI'm willing to stop and look forward
00:46:27rasherOr ignore the whole thing. Whichever.
00:46:33Bagderadding a "gimme next" command for the clients should be fairly easy
00:46:41kugelI'm thinking the whole queue'ing could be dropped for client requested builds
00:46:58Bagderit still wants a new before the previous is done
00:46:59Zagorgevaerts: queuing is the problem, really. we should just skip the server queues and add the "gimme more" command
00:47:04Bagderthat's a queue
00:47:14Bagderisn't that a queue?
00:47:20rasherBagder: Why does it want a new before the previous is done?
00:47:20Bagdertwo outstanding builds
00:47:25rasherWell, depending on threads
00:47:28Bagderbecause it is uploading
00:47:40kugelcompile->request new build->upload
00:47:40Zagorwell, it depends on definition. the queue would only contain running builds then
00:47:41Bagderthen it wants to start the next, before the ul is done
00:47:44gevaertsok, so you want to replace pre-emptive queue filling by filling on demand?
00:47:50JdGordon|I would argue that A and C in the wiki are "the client asking for another build"
00:48:11rasherBagder: Yeah, that's a definition. I mean a queue of not-even-running builds
00:48:14kugelBagder: then just request before uploading
00:48:30Bagderkugel: that's what I said, but that makes it a queue in my terms
00:48:39Bagderbut not in yours ;-)
00:48:48rasherSo we all agree
00:48:51rasherAnd cake for everyone
00:48:53kugelseems so :>
00:49:18kugelBagder: it's also a queue, but not the same as the current one :)
00:49:29Bagderyes it is, just shorter ;-)
00:49:45Bagderthe server won't have to treat it any differently
00:51:06ZagorBagder: do you have time to do this, or should I dig in?
00:51:40Bagderplease go ahead, I'm stuck in another project atm
00:51:54BagderI'll review the commits

00:59:24kugelbut if we do that in the lcd driver, it would be done in interrupt context

01:00:36Zagorrasher: no, not really. the slowest of 20 clients will still get the 20th hardest build in the first handout
01:01:12Zagorwe discussed trying to "spread" the builds over clients but didn't come up with a good way to do it.
01:01:28Zagorand besides we'd need a non-bogus speed measurement to have any real use for it
01:01:36kugelthe slowest clients get the hardest builds?
01:01:48Zagorkugel: eh?

01:02:41kugelI was "the slowest of 20 clients will still get the 20 hardest builds"
01:03:29rasherZagor: So with the current system, the slowest system doesn't get the 3 easiest builds?
01:04:15Bagderto do that, we'd have to "leave" a very hard build for a while and hand out easy builds to the slower ones
01:04:27Bagderto risk that no fast client is left later
01:04:53Bagderwe instead focus on handing out builds in prio order, the heavier the earlier

01:15:12Zagorkugel: no, clients don't choose builds. the will just say "I'm ready for another one"
01:15:41Zagorwe discussed prioritizing clients that did previous versions of each target, but that gets very messy very fast
01:15:56Bagderyeah, we get too many variables to take into account
01:16:59*gevaerts thinks that the best allocation strategy is to give out builds that require uploads before builds that don't, and then just big builds first
01:17:06kugelZagor: I didn't mean to make the client choose, but rather put a recommendation, as in telling the server "This is what I did last, it would be nice if you can give it me again due ccache, if not I'll silently accept any other build too"
01:17:20Bagdergevaerts: yes, but that's just a matter of "scoring" those builds higher

06:40:58LloreanIf I hold "Home" and press right more than once quickly, I actually end up back at the home menu
06:41:35JdGordonI tihnk buttons in the same "column" cant be mapped together
06:41:46LloreanI can do Home+Left if I press them at nearly the same time
06:41:52LloreanIf I hold Home, then wait, then press left, nothing happens
06:41:55LloreanSo I can't go up multiple pages
06:41:57JdGordonwhich means no home+up or home+right
06:42:17Lloreanhome+left doesn't really work either.
06:42:20Byancan't be mapped limited by what?
06:42:27Byanrockbox or the hardware?
06:42:28Lloreanyou have to release home, then press it again, for each press of left.
06:42:50JdGordonthats a keymap issue though, not hardware.. i tihnk
06:43:08LloreanOther combos don't normally work like that, but okay
06:43:22LloreanI guess it's Home+Left rather than Home(Repeat) + Left
06:44:13JdGordonBUGGER... this makes the keymap much more painful

08:04:31amiconnWhat gcc version did you use?
08:04:49amiconnPerhaps binutils 2.19 should be used in conjunction with a newer gcc as well
08:05:20amiconnIirc the debian wiki mentions gcc 4.1.1 as the first with "usable"eabi support
08:05:27Unhelpfulit would be nice if we could just have a linker option to generate the long-call "veneers"... they seem quite sensible really, it sets up just as if for a short call to the function, using the veneer address, and then the veneer address has a pc-relative ldr to pc, and the target address of the real function.
08:06:43Unhelpfulis there any specific claim made as to which gcc versions are compatible with which binutils?

13:31:31kugel2.5min per toolchain
13:36:59mcuelenaeresome config-*.h seem to say that HAVE_LCD_SLEEP_SETTING is optional, but if I don't define it I get an undeclared LCD_SLEEP_TIMEOUT error .. ?
13:37:50mcuelenaereah nvm, I found HAVE_LCD_SLEEP_SETTING
13:39:48kugelmcuelenaere: if you don't define _SETTING you need to define the hardcoded timeout
13:40:18mcuelenaerekugel: yes, I just figured that out :) However, it sounds more logical to me that if you don't define _SLEEP_TIMEOUT, it uses the setting
13:40:56kugelmcuelenaere: if your display isn't readable without backlight (and if waking up doesn't take too long), you could also ignore _SLEEP and put all power saving into lcd_enable()
13:41:39mcuelenaerekugel: ah, that's how it's currently done; however I don't see a call to lcd_enable() when the backlight turns off ?
13:41:47mcuelenaere(I added some logf's)
13:43:17kugelmcuelenaere: that call should be in _backlight_off() of your lcd driver
13:43:40mcuelenaerekugel: ah; and don't you mean the backlight driver?
13:43:46kugelI haven't made it target independant like lcd_sleep() yet because I recall the F/X is still doing it wrong somehow and I don't want to break it
13:44:43kugelbut the difference between lcd_enable() and lcd_sleep with _TIMEOUT == 0 is neglible
13:48:43UnhelpfulTorne: firmware/target/arm/sansa/ pretty sure it's the right one as make bin re-preprocesses whenever i modify it. but my system with arm-elf-eabi is packed up for the day
13:49:55TorneUnhelpful: yah. i might have a go late r:)
13:50:59Unhelpfulyou need a snapshot binutils... as far as i can find those aren't on i posted a diff earlier with most of what you should need, although i'm now using a later gcc.
13:52:06Tornethat sounds like a hilarious nightmare. :)
13:53:18CIA-71New commit by kugel (r21740): Fix a few comments in gwps.c.
13:53:45Unhelpfulwell, this exception nightmare started when i built a later gcc. if you use an arm-elf-eabi gcc with binutils <=2.19.1 you still get the reloc errors because it apparently *doesn't* generate stubs for most function calls
13:55:43Tornetbh there may be some intrinsic value in moving to eabi anyway, as long as it proves not to make anything slower/bigger ;)
13:56:36Unhelpfulit might be worth padding uint8_rgb to 4 bytes... pixel-fits-in-a-register could come in handy. :)
13:57:15Torneindeed, someone will want to look at all the things whose size have changed and see whether it's really a win or not
13:59:00Unhelpfuland somebody *must* look at all of the things that pass C structs to asm functions. i'm pretty sure that's why core jpeg was hosed, and i suspect that's how the mp3 codec ended up at an address somewhere past it's .icode section.
14:12:24kugelUnhelpful: It would also safe load/store instructions, wouldn't it? 1 ldr vs 3 ldrb

14:18:19Unhelpfulkugel: unless you need to inspect the component values, yes. everything that uses uint8_rgb to my knowledge *does* unpack the components.

14:42:29LambdaCalculus37You can upgrade the hard drive in the H120 easily.
14:42:40GreatBeaveri am waiting for amazon to have the 80gb mk8025gal in stock
14:42:56GreatBeaverbut im researching 500gb-1tb harddrive with transport capability
14:43:17GreatBeaveris there anything like it without the crazy price of music servers?
14:43:27LambdaCalculus37Sorry, but no 1.8" hard drive has even reached that capacity yet.
14:43:53GreatBeaverjust a few months ago this came out
14:44:44GreatBeaveri have the adapter but the mk8025gal is rare
14:45:06LambdaCalculus37And I'm going to also bet rather expensive.
14:45:29LambdaCalculus37You can also perform a CompactFlash mod on your H120.
14:45:48GreatBeaver64gb cf is very expensive
14:45:54GreatBeaver80gb hdd is $100

14:57:06GodEaterbut he asked for a harddrive. Harddrives don't ouput an audio signal.
14:57:13*GodEater is clearly confused
14:58:10GreatBeaveri mean a multimedia harddrive
14:58:12Tornea harddisk transport is a box with a hard drive and an audio out and enough of a processor to play audio off the drive
14:58:19Tornei.e. an mp3 player, but less portable :)
14:58:31GreatBeaverdo you know of any good ones Torne ?
14:58:35GodEaternever even heard of the things
14:58:42GreatBeaverim searching everywhere and no luck im about to just search for notebooks
14:58:53TorneGodEater: they're a replacement for carting huge boxes of CDs around to DJ with, or hwatever :)
14:59:42Torneanyway, no we don't know, it seems, and this is offtopic: this channel is for rockbox development and support
14:59:53Torneany rockbox player will do what you want, but may not have enough storage: website lists them all
15:00:01Torneother than that we are unlikely to know
15:00:20GreatBeavermaybe rockbox should rockbox a multimedia harddrive ^^

15:07:00GreatBeaverbut do they start up as fast as rockbox?
15:07:13courtcQNX does.
15:07:20Tornethey start up faster than rockbox, given that rockbox doesn't start at all on PC hardware
15:07:31Torneand thus its startup time would have to include "port rockbox to PC"
15:07:35Tornewhich would be months :)
15:07:44courtcMonth shmonths.
15:08:02Tornecourtc: depends if you want it to work on any pc other than the author's, really :)
15:08:17Tornegetting an OS to run on *one* PC is not too difficult, getting it to run on a majority of PCs is a lot more work ;)
15:08:21GreatBeaveri think i'll just hardwire my h120 to a 1tb harddrive
15:08:40TorneGreatBeaver: if you're happy with the sound hardware on the h120 then that sounds like a perfectly sensible plan
15:08:51Torneassuming we can support that big a drive which i have no idea
15:08:51GreatBeaveri only use the optical output on the h120
15:09:14GreatBeavermaybe the external harddrive needs to be plugged to a power supply
15:09:29courtcNah, it's easy, as long as you don't care about functionality, which would be given, since you are porting rockbox to a pc.

15:27:42GreatBeaveri dont think an h120 has enough juice to power on that harddrive though

17:55:16oboyes, 0x22 is GRAM. 0x20 is horiz GRAM address, 0x21 is vert
17:55:22kugelI really can't tell you much as I have no idea of this driver (less that you even), but other drivers are working differently
17:55:40kugelI think you set those only once at the beginning
17:55:47kugelthe hardware will advance the internal pointer
17:56:22oboin which case, with the init routine setting them both to 0x0, they shouldn't need setting at all?
17:56:48kugelyou need to set them before writing to the GRAM of course
17:57:24oboOkay, I'll try that.
17:57:45kugelif they're really only used in the init function then they're probably not that what you're thinking they are
17:57:54oboI wish the datasheet had more details on the SPI mode...
17:58:16kugelwell, in fact, if you only use fullscreen updates, you might only need to set them once
17:58:34kugelbut you also don't set the end position, that confuses me a bit
18:00:06obodifferent registers provide the start and end positions during init

22:03:02Bagderah they only ask once?
22:03:10Bagderfor each completed I mean
22:03:19ZagorBagder: yes, they ask for more when they have available resources
22:03:21bertrikpixelma, it _should_ flush its buffer on power-down on when the buffer gets full
22:03:23pixelmakugel: is this macro used for the half width/height version?
22:03:31ZagorI've added a little provision for single-core builds too
22:03:50pixelmabertrik: how long can it take entries (how many and what is this in hours)?
22:04:01saratogapixelma: doesn't it spin up eventually to log results?
22:04:06Zagortime for a live test...
22:04:12kugelthe macro version is doubtlessly the worst version, but I can't figure out what it does with static vs non-static
22:04:47pixelmakugel: amiconn had the idea of making it use bitmaps anyways and then you can adapt it better to different screen sizes and it will look better. I even drew images...
22:05:21kugelchopper really doesn't need bitmaps imo
22:05:22*amiconn hrmphs
22:05:51bertrikpixelma, about 16 hours
22:06:11pixelmakugel: I think it will look a lot better - and as I said will be easier to adapt to different screen sizes.
22:06:34pixelmabertrik: what happens on overflow?
22:06:36kugelhow are bitmaps easier to adapt? It means manually converting every bitmap
22:07:05bertrikpixelma, it tries to flush the buffer anyway, if it can't it ignores new values
22:07:16kugelchopper just uses plain foreground color, without any fancy color shades or something.
22:07:39pixelmawell, can you scale to arbitrary sizes? Like 1.23425 times?
22:09:23kugelthat would be like using using bitmaps for the line selectors to make be better adapted to different font sizes
22:09:47pixelmaI don't understand what colour shades have to do with that. The images I drew are 2 chopper "states" each (just the rotor a bit differently)
22:10:35kugelanyway, I don't care
22:10:46kugelI'm after the SCALE(x) thing, that makes me curious

22:13:57kugelgevaerts: yea, I think I made about all bootloader
22:14:09amiconnZagor: Btw, I think that adding timestamps to the log output would be a good idea
22:14:21*Bagder agrees with amiconn
22:15:06kugelZagor: I don't seem to get a new build after getting one killed
22:15:25Zagorah, that's a client bug
22:15:26BagderI see the same here
22:15:43Zagorit doesn't ask for a new when it gets killed. fixing.
22:16:02kugelI'd also find it nice if the commands would be printed more verbosely, is there an option for that?
22:16:05JdGordon|svn: Syntax error in revision argument 'mt'
22:16:09ZagorI don't understand why the bootloaders come on the middle of the round. they should be after sims.

22:16:33JdGordon|thats my output

22:16:40gevaertsSame error here
22:16:56Zagoryep, something is wrong. exiting server.
22:17:58ZagorI'm probably being punished for removing the @buildids array...
22:18:39*amiconn got the same svn error in one client, but a different svn error in the other client
22:18:52*rasher saw no svn errors
22:18:54rasherBut that could be luck
22:19:49kugelI was getting those too
22:20:08pixelmaI also got an svn error and a "Server socket disconnected" after removal of builds
22:20:26Zagorperl is a bit nasty here. if you check for the presence of $hash{key}{value}, suddenly $hash{key} is created...
22:20:46Zagorunless you use "defined"

22:48:58Bagdernice find
22:49:06saratogai saw someone tested the new bootloaders on the H10 finally
22:49:08soycamobadger: found stuff, n/m
22:49:10saratogaare we ready to release them then?
22:49:11gevaertssoycamo: I believe people have used fontforge
22:49:20Bagderand my nick isn't spelled like that
22:49:36*kugel hands saratoga a TAB key
22:49:54kugelmy TAB hangs too
22:50:06amiconnfontforge is rather crappy imo. I'd suggest gbdfed
22:50:20gevaertssaratoga: everything is tested except H10 20GB.
22:50:39gevaertsej0rge: RockboxTesting says you have a 20GB H10 :)
22:50:55kugelfinally this page is useful :)
22:51:12soycamoThe UI is a little kludgy. Who can I report that to?
22:51:16gevaertskugel: I've used it before. I just don't always say :)
22:51:26Bagdersoycamo: the ui?
22:51:45soycamobadger: yeah. it's not very intuitive imo
22:52:11pixelmasaratoga: I always wonder why you sound so assured in the forums when giving advice. E.g. do you know for sure that the timestretch mode is really accessible (UI wise) on the c200? I have a c200 and would have to try... although the guy didn't sound like he tried very hard to find out how to use it
22:52:19AlexPsoycamo: UI for what?
22:52:22Bagderyou in vague terms speak
22:52:29*Bagder does a yoda impression
22:52:45soycamobadger: the ui for rockbox, ie when I turn on my c250, it is not obvious what I should do
22:53:07AlexP"Who do I report it to" haha
22:53:21*gevaerts looks around for this badger person
22:53:21soycamoAlexP: I thought there might be an Awesome UI Super Team
22:53:22AlexPFeel free to suggest specific improvements
22:53:58soycamoAlexP: okay. Well, there should be a very easy "Music" menu at the top, because that's most important.
22:53:59Bagdergevaerts: he might look for someone to badger!
22:54:10AlexPsoycamo: That goes where?
22:54:14saratogapixelma: if its on the e200 how would it not be on the c200?
22:54:17AlexPsoycamo: File tree or database?
22:54:28gevaertssoycamo: is it? For everyone?
22:54:28AlexPsoycamo: And if filetree, then which directory?
22:54:30rashergevaerts: Hush, that's our line!
22:54:39soycamoalexp: A link I guess? It's hard to explain this in text.
22:54:43pixelmasaratoga: because the c200 has a different keymap?
22:54:45funmankugel: (about SCALE(x) in chopper) perhaps one call was optimized?
22:54:51pixelmathere might be problems?
22:54:52AlexPsoycamo: A link where?
22:55:02soycamoalexp: at the root of Rockbox menu.
22:55:06AlexPsoycamo: Customisable menus are not very highly thought of
22:55:11AlexPsoycamo: To where?

22:56:11AlexPI don't use the database
22:56:17AlexPThat isn't how I get to music
22:56:29AlexPVirtually all the devs don't use the database in fact
22:56:36soycamoalexp: Don't think like a dev
22:56:44pixelmaexcept Slasheri maybe
22:56:51soycamoalexp: think like an idiot user. end user just wants music.
22:56:56AlexPSo for all those users that don't use the database, your music label would be wrong
22:57:07pixelmasoycamo: why shpuld we make the life harder for us?
22:57:08AlexPWe don't force people to use a database
22:57:09soycamoalexp: that could be fixed in settings
22:57:17gevaertssoycamo: also, lots of people use it for non-music audio...
22:57:28soycamopixelma: do you ever have that moment when you want it to *work* without thinking?
22:57:33AlexPIt does
22:57:41gevaertssoycamo: what's so hard about choosing "Database"?
22:57:42soycamopixelma: yes, and I use it for both
22:57:55pixelmasoycamo: you could also read the manual and maybe find the start screen options...
22:57:55kugelgevaerts: how could we optimize what the server is giving a client upin GIMMEMORE?
22:57:58AlexPI think - I want to use the database, or I want to browse files, so I choose "Database" or "Filetree"
22:58:05soycamogevaerts: it is non-obvious. I am approaching this from a user perspective
22:58:12kugelor is that a plain linear list now?
22:58:44*soycamo feels like she is talking to a wall
22:58:49AlexPsoycamo: And making things either wrong or more complicated
22:59:04soycamoalexp: okay, sorry, never mind.
22:59:16AlexPDon't get me wrong, improvements are welcome
22:59:35AlexPBut a big factor of Rockbox is to allow access how people want to what they want
22:59:45soycamoalexp: and I want it to be stupidly simple
22:59:53AlexPRockbox isn't for you then
23:00:00soycamoalexp: why not?
23:00:08AlexPIt has too many options and possibilities to be stupidly simple
23:00:16pixelmait won't be stupidly simple if it goes to the database automatically and you don't even use it
23:00:17AlexPThat is why we have a rather fine manual
23:00:35pixelmait = database here
23:00:40soycamoalexp: but what if I want to have "zomg easy button" for when I'm on my bicycle, and then use the menus for "srs business" mode
23:00:42n1ssoycamo: i find a database to be extra complication, i know where my files are on the drive i just want to get to them
23:00:57AlexPsoycamo: That just makes it even worse
23:01:04soycamoalexp: why?
23:01:16AlexPsoycamo: Why can't I find this setting? Oh, maybe I'm in the wrong mode
23:01:19soycamon1s: then why have the database then?
23:01:29AlexPDo I have to switch modes to be able to do x?
23:01:39soycamoalexp: I'm just asking for a shortcut to a shuffle mode for when I'm on my bicycle
23:01:40AlexPsoycamo: As some people do use it

23:04:02AlexPpixelma: Ah, I misread e not c
23:04:20saratogapixelma: its a standard menu option, why would it need a different keymap?
23:05:11pixelmasaratoga: doesn't it need switching the mode in the pitch screen, I don't know whether that works correctly
23:05:43gevaertsWho can build osx binaries for sansapatcher and e200rpatcher?

23:14:39amiconnThere can be issues with keymaps. Even if an action is mapped that doesn't mean it actually works. It can e.g. be covered by another action in the context - context chaining can hide this pretty well

23:46:16Bagderwell, they can still happen if the client has lost touch with the server
23:46:37Bagderin a silent manner I mean
23:46:43Zagoryes but the server will disconnect first, which the client will react to with a "cleanup + restart"
