00:11:09pixelmayep... it was r21863 (the strlcpy one). So not your fault but I wonder how (or when) you tested or if it's an Ondio specific problem or
00:11:30stripwaxsaratoga - woah, cook uses a RNG that needs a mult?
00:11:47pixelma2 months ago can't be since my old revision wasn't that old

00:12:43gevaertshm, the strlcpy one is annoying. That's a big one to go through
00:13:56pixelmathe crash happens in gui_wps_update which could explain why it happens in cuesheet in recent revisions (address is still "close")

00:25:37funmanwincent: you could have a look at profiling (gcc -pg)
00:26:04funmanI think it's more complex to setup, but gcc will add a call to a certain function in each function entry
00:27:57pixelmafunman: that utility doesn't seem to work in my installation (cygwin) "Can't locate String/ in @INC"
00:28:37pixelmaanother difference is that my build dir is not inside the source dir
00:28:55funmanpixelma: you need to install the package as well (download the .tar.gz; untar; perl Makefile.PM; make; make install)
00:28:56pixelmabut I have the path right as tab completion shows
00:28:58wincentfunman: Does profiling information include the calling log or does it produce calling statistics only?
00:29:20funmanpixelma: you just need to call the from the build dir
00:29:33wincentfunman: I do not need a calling graph, but the calling log.
00:30:02pixelmafunman: then that's not easier for now... yes, path was no problem, I just told you in case that makes a difference
00:30:31funmanwincent: you can modify the added function (__cyg_profile_* in firmware/profile.c) but i think using logf() is simpler: how much functions do you need to track ?
00:30:46funmanpixelma: will be easier when you have other problems in the future ;)
00:31:09funmanor perhaps when someone removes the dependancy of this script on extra perl modules

01:44:43stripwaxderekja - does it happen when you skip (left/right) or only when you try and select a new track (select)? when the screen is blank is it still playing music?
01:46:59derekjastripwax: only when a new track is selected, and it is not still playing music?
01:47:08derekjaignore the question mark
01:54:02stripwaxSo you can use the file browser ok, but when you select the track to play, rockbox freezes, no audio, and no screen? I don't think I've heard of that issue before. Are you using a custom build of any sort? Which format audio files are these?

05:19:04supacoolhi folks... i've got a bit of a wrangled problem if anyone has any suggestions: a file has two different composer tags (vorbis comments); but I can't figure out how to get my wps screen to display both composers... %ic only ever reads one of the tags
05:23:46evilnickHow are they stored? i.e. are they Composer=composer1;composer2 or are they Composer1=composer1 and Composer2=composer2
05:25:35supacoolCOMPOSER tags for both; as far as I know Rockbox's wps identifiers would have no way of parsing custom tags like COMPOSER1 and COMPOSER2
05:26:07supacooltwo separate tags for two separate composers
05:30:14supacoolI'd prefer not to resort to listing all composers in one tag comment because it defeats the advantages you gain by keeping them separate (i.e., browsing a database by composer
05:35:45supacoolUpdate: I just checked and it seems the database is affected also... that is, only one composer tag per file is ever parsed

05:56:44supacooleverything seems to stem from the fact that vorbis tags are arbitrarily forced to fit the ID3 scheme because that's what was used in Rockbox first

06:26:28Llorean5-10 seconds suggests something's wrong though
06:26:31kkurbjunor you can turn up the spindown time
06:26:47LloreanIt shouldn't be more than a couple.
06:26:53LloreanAnd it's "dircache"
06:26:59kkurbjunLlorean: sounds like spinup
06:27:27Lloreankkurbjun: 5-10 seconds is a lot longer than spinup *should* be though.
06:28:07supacoolfragmentation of the data on the drive might be an actual issue, no?
06:28:32LloreanIsn't this just FAT stuff, fragmentation shouldn't matter?
06:33:10iwonderok, so WHY wasn't Directory Cache *enabled* at default?
06:33:17iwonderit works almost instantly now
06:33:20iwonderas it should
06:33:55LloreanSome people would rather not waste RAM on making browsing a small amount faster when most of the time they're just listening to music.
06:34:10Lloreanas well, dircache has some limitations (size limits) still that can cause problems for some users.
06:34:15iwonderit's not small at all

06:35:33iwonderwell, it is at least 5 seconds
06:35:41LloreanWhich is why I said there's probably something else wrong.

07:16:21iwonderis there a way to make the sensitivity of the ipod wheel be less 'jumpy'?
07:22:51iwonderfiltering the song list could be sped up further by Rockbox detecting the letters in the song list that are in that sequence (thus saving you the time & movement) of scrolling thru letters that are not in that same sequence
07:27:55 Quit CaptainKewl (Remote closed the connection)
07:28:21iwondereg: already having the filter letters of 'per' will only only show the letters 'k' & 'c' if the only songs in the list with "per" in them are perk* or perc*

07:32:44iwonder by holding down the Track Forward button one can have Rockbox look for those words, but unlike normally, do not have to be the first letters of the song/filename
07:33:40iwonderTrack Forward button ie when you are already in the filter mode
07:36:21iwondera good default would be to have Rockbox have its filter mode search for Song titles in the format of "Artist - Song name.mp3" or be able to switch to filter by Artists
07:36:36iwonderwithout having to have id3 tags
07:39:03iwonderit could also support wildcards, ??? * or even further, boolean :)
07:39:50evilnick_homeWhy *wouldn't* you want to tag your music files?
07:40:50iwonderyou obviously do not understand
07:41:04iwonderabout designing good software adaptive to the user
07:41:24iwonderyou do not value it
07:41:36iwonderat least not as much as i do
07:42:47scorche|shyou really
07:42:49scorche|shshould stop
07:42:53scorche|shtalking like this...
07:43:17iwonderwhen you can make things more accessible, without slowing down or causing other things more important to break, and the time/energy is worth the added usefulness to all the users who use it, I say - go for it!
07:44:13evilnick_homeiwonder: Features like that might be useful for you personally but for people with properly tagged music wouldn't be much use and they'd cut down on available memory for all users
07:44:22safetydaniwonder: with Rockbox it's always a trade off between RAM usage and usability for all
07:44:40iwonderevilnick - don't speak as if i'm the only one who could use this
07:44:59Lloreaniwonder: So put up a patch showing how little RAM-use increase it can be done with.
07:45:06scorche|shthat said, i think you are misunderstanding out "target audience" if you will...also, are you very familiar with embedded development?...everything we add has an impact...each new 'feature' needs to be carefully looked over because every aded code adds to the core size of rockbox...the bigger rockbox gets, the more memory it takes up...the more memory it takes up, the less there is for the audio buffer...the less there is for the audio
07:45:28evilnick_homeI assume that the majority of people do tag their music. Is that an invalid assumption?
07:45:53Mikachuscorche|sh: use enter more :P was it supposed to end at "the less there is for the audio"?
07:46:06scorche|shsome of this stuff might be nice for some people, but if it negatively impacts the rest, it isnt worth implementing without careful consideration
07:46:11scorche|shthe less there is for the audio buffer...the less there is for the audio buffer, the less battery life we get
07:46:59iwonderyou have to know how to code well i guess to do it
07:47:07iwonderif you don't, than the other stuff may suffer
07:47:17iwonderyou have to know the code intimately obviously
07:47:24Mikachuyes, or be able to argue your point without insulting everyone who responds ;)
07:47:32iwonderi don't see it as a impossibility
07:47:35scorche|sheven if you do know how to code well, some things that people (including you) request would still be a massive addition for not much gain
07:47:40iwonderif the nomad jb3 with very limited cpu/memory could do this
07:47:53Lloreaniwonder: "can do" isn't the same as "should do"
07:48:08LloreanIt may be that they could've offered better battery life if they'd been more considerate of what is or isn't truly necessary
07:48:16iwonderwhat is the goal of Rockbox?
07:48:46iwonderto make things easier for people to access, play, & manipulate their music?
07:48:51LloreanPossibly "To be good at playing audio"
07:48:59LloreanPossibly "to be what the people actually writing it want it to be"
07:49:46LloreanYou seem to be missing the point that adding more features slowly makes it a *worse* audio player, which is basically the core function, so it needs to be decided which features are worth degrading this core function for.
07:49:48evilnick_homeiwonder: Most of what you've suggested is already possible using the database. I wonder why you don't want to tag your files.
07:49:51iwonderLlorean, are you very familiar with the code Rockbox uses?
07:50:02iwonderand understand how it works quite well?
07:50:27LloreanWhat's the point of being able to more quickly get to your files for playback, if playback is bad?
07:50:29iwonderif you don't, your statements are pretty baseless
07:50:50iwonderin fact, they are just arrogant ignorance masquerading as somehow true
07:51:21evilnick_homeiwonder: Do you reside in a greenhouse?
07:51:28Lloreaniwonder: You really should be careful throwing random insults around.
07:52:46iwonderi think most would users & programmers that know Rockbox's code well would agree: filter as you type searches is doable & very handy
07:52:52iwonderfor many purposes
07:52:58iwonder-would :)
07:53:14Mikachuand you base this on everyone telling you the opposite?
07:53:39scorche|shno one said it wasnt doable either...we are just saying that it really isnt worth it - especially considering what one can do with database
07:53:50Lloreaniwonder: Nobody said it wasn't doable. They just said it *might* not be worth the cost.
07:54:04Lloreaniwonder: As I said, feel free to prove us wrong by showing how little code it can be done with
07:54:22scorche|shbut if you can come up with a patch that implements it in a very minimal way codebloat-wise, then i would be happy to see it..
07:58:34Lloreaniwonder: You do realize this is entirely volunteer work - people do what they're interested in. If you want it badly enough, do it. If you don't, don't complain that other programmers really aren't interested in it.
07:59:18iwonderso you speak with the 'other' programmers voice? do you know what they think about this?
07:59:20 Join advcomp2019_ [0] (n=advcomp2@unaffiliated/advcomp2019)
07:59:26iwonderin the way I described filter as you type above?
07:59:34scorche|shiwonder: yes he does...because we are in here talking to you too
07:59:43iwonderif not, you really should not put their voice to make it fit with your own
07:59:53scorche|shhe speaks with his voice, but that voice is mostly in line with the rest of our thoughts
07:59:56Lloreaniwonder: I'm only stating that several other programmers have already told you their opinions.
08:01:04scorche|shand in the same vein, you really should stop acting as "the users'" voice when you dont knwo for sure what the majority of them think about this
08:01:12evilnick_homeiwonder: I don't understand why you would rather Rockbox implement something that would benefit only a very small number of users, rather than you using a saner directory structure or by tagging your files.
08:01:15*iwonder sighs :Oo
08:01:19*iwonder knocks on wood
08:01:30iwonderyou don't know what i'm talking about then
08:01:45pixelmaiwonder: did you know that you can just let the WPS display the song name (with or without the file name) if there are is e.g. no artist tag? And maybe the database filters could also help you... you should really look into this
08:01:51iwonderjust a basic filter as you type - doesn't have to have to extra features i stated (at least for now)
08:01:57evilnick_homePlease explain how your suggestion is better.
08:02:08pixelmaerrr... I meant "display the filename"
08:02:09Lloreaniwonder: As we've said - feel free to implement it.
08:02:31scorche|shiwonder: things can appear "basic" to users, but programming those features can often turn out to be quite the opposite of basic
08:02:56iwonderi know this
08:02:59pixelmaand "with or without the extension"
08:03:02iwonder(somewhat :)
08:03:30iwonderone thing leads to another, especially with programming
08:03:48iwonderok, than don't
08:04:18iwondersimple. problem solved. i need to put my attention on stuff that will actually be of help
08:04:59LloreanYou need to put your attention on *doing* stuff, rather than saying "hey, you guys really should do what I say"
08:05:18iwonderprobably because i don't have much energy left
08:05:27iwonderin many ways
08:05:31iwonderanyway, i need to go
08:05:56iwonderhopefully my ideas will eventually be implemented
08:06:00evilnick_homeBy all means come up with suggestions, but the way you phrased them was a little antagonistic
08:06:09iwondernot my ideas, but many others
08:06:38scorche|shand if you want something done, insulting the people you are trying to get to implement them is not the recommended way of accomplishing your goals..
08:06:56iwonderhow so?
08:07:01evilnick_homeAnd your proof is where? You're claiming "many others"
08:07:35iwonderyou don't need proof to know something
08:07:44Lloreaniwonder: Throwing phrases like "arrogant ignorance" around makes you sound insulting.
08:07:56LloreanAnd to know what the user base wants, you do need at least some significant polling.
08:08:08iwonderor you can use your intuition
08:08:24iwonderyou can use your experience of what works for you
08:08:24LloreanThat's not knowing. That's guessing, blindly.
08:08:31evilnick_homeYOU know that YOU could use this new feature. That's one user. Then you claim "many users" so you can easily prove that one user would use it, you cannot prove that many would.
08:08:39LloreanI would bet you a significant amount of money I have more experience with the *Rockbox* userbase than anyone else here.
08:08:48iwonderknowing what works for one, often works for others, especially if it's already been done before and shown to work well
08:09:08LloreanIn fact, I probably have more experience interacting directly with our users than any three people in this room combined.
08:09:11evilnick_homeiwonder: If it works so well, how many other DAPs employ a similar feature?
08:09:25iwonderLlorean, maybe so, but you do not hear the words of those who usually do not speak or voice their opinion
08:09:34scorche|shiwonder: and you do?
08:09:42iwonderi am that voice
08:09:49Mikachu(this is hilarious)
08:10:00iwonderat least it makes someone laugh ;)
08:10:09Lloreaniwonder: So you magically know what everyone's been keeping silent about? And yet, our intuitions are all wrong, and your lone one is right?
08:10:29iwonderthis is true, Llorean
08:10:30safetydaniwonder: stick your ideas on the Feature Ideas section of the forum. Then you can get some other users to comment.
08:12:21Lloreaniwonder: If you want people to take you at all seriously, you really need to stop claiming to "know" what anyone other than you wants.
08:12:28r0b-why would rockbox show 441 songs when theres only 435
08:12:47Lloreanr0b-: Recycle binned a few?
08:13:42r0b-even running disktidy didnt do anything
08:13:42evilnick_homer0b-: Run the Disktidy plugin to clear out the Recycle Bin (or equivalent) and then Initialise Database again - that ought to fix it.

16:36:09wincentlinuxstb: Also, it is quite fast.
16:37:57linuxstbwincent: I'm not quite sure what you are asking on the mailing list - are you asking for some kind of profiling, which will tell you which functions are (and are not) called/
16:38:13wincentlinuxstb: Yes.
16:38:53 Part LinusN
16:39:03linuxstbThere are already ways to profile Rockbox, but I've never done it, so don't know the details.
16:39:11BryanJacobslike you'd get from a debugger stack trace?
16:39:29daurnlua plugin looks in wrong places when requiring

16:40:19BryanJacobsif you strace the sim you'll see every system call made - that includes open()
16:41:45wincentBryanJacobs: I would like to see every function, not every system call.
16:42:05BryanJacobswell then, you can either insert logging statements at the function entry or use breakpoints
16:42:10BryanJacobsor integer counters
16:42:27BryanJacobsor you can use oprof or some such but I'm not sure how that'd work
16:43:15wincentBryanJacobs: Last night I spoke with funman, and what we got to agree on was a scripts that inserts puts("functionname"); into every function.
16:43:59BryanJacobsthat'll be fun... are you changing the compiler, or just using a macro you add by hand to every function?
16:45:16linuxstbwincent: There's some documentation on profiling in docs/TECH (in the source code).
16:48:03wincentlinuxstb: Profinling is not what I need, because I need to compare function running logs from the original PDa application and from pdbox, so the aforementioned script which enters puts("functionname") is the sole way to go, or so it seems.
16:48:58Unhelpfulyou want not just counts for function calls and time spent in functions, but an in-order list of individual function calls?

17:10:16AsaelReiterI installed rockbox on my Sansa Clip, and it works mostly fine.
17:11:09Tornei hear a but coming
17:12:10AsaelReiterI saw that you want testers, and I think I can help
17:13:08mtalso, I figured the extradata bytes for aac are for object_type, sampling_rate and channel_configuration, the init function now works fine, as does the frames parsing. Something is still wrong with decoding though (always getting a 'Maximum number of scalefactor bands exceeded' error).
17:13:09Unhelpfulwincent: ltrace and/or gdb can't do this for you? :/
17:13:55AsaelReiterSo, can you add me to the list ( (or give me write access?)
17:14:17wincentUnhelpful: gdb might do only with breakpoint at the entry of every function, which would be too time-consuming.
17:15:05 Quit teru ("Quit")
17:15:05saratogaif you just want to see what functions are called, can't you use DEBUGF?
17:16:16 Join mankind_ [0] (
17:16:18wincentUnhelpful: ltrace ... I am looking into it. I know he tool already.
17:16:39wincentsaratoga: Too much DEBUGFs. (Every functionin PDBox... )
17:16:57BryanJacobswhy not be a little more methodical?
17:17:01BryanJacobsuse the mprotect call
17:17:11BryanJacobsprotect every function from reading, install your own segfault handler
17:17:27BryanJacobsand then at the end, the pages which never triggered a SEGV were not read and thus the function was not called
17:17:43linuxstbmt: Without reading through the code, I don't know. But I would be surprised if AAC didn't support mono...
17:17:57BryanJacobsyou'd need to disable ASLR probably in order to get the function-to-address mapping right
17:18:36linuxstbmt: Although thinking about it, maybe Rockbox doesn't understand mono/stereo, and codecs are always required to generate stereo streams...
17:18:40saratogahow many functions are called when you get your crash?
17:19:04saratogayou're using a test file right? presumably it doesn't use every function in the code
17:19:06BryanJacobslinuxstb: isn't there a ci->dsp option for that?
17:20:06wincentsaratoga: The real trick is the question which functions does the original application use, the one that, using the same mem-allocator, does not crash?
17:20:51BryanJacobswincent: all you're trying to do is track down a crash? Can't you just gdb the sim and run a bt when the crash happens?
17:21:38Unhelpfulltrace crashes for me on various functions depending on which library i ask it to trace
17:21:51mtlinuxstb: I'm just asking because of this line : ci->configure(DSP_SET_STEREO_MODE, STEREO_NONINTERLEAVED); - This is not the case for cook, or a number of other codecs. But why are you saying that maybe rockbox doesn't understand stereo/mono ?
17:22:22linuxstbmt: I meant that it's not stored in the metadata struct. But yes, I understand your question now...
17:23:17linuxstbmt: This line seems important - "conf->outputFormat = FAAD_FMT_24BIT; /* irrelevant, we don't convert */" - maybe the AAC decoder has been hacked to always return stereo samples. Or maybe we don't support mono AAC streams, and no-one noticed...
17:24:02wincentBryanJacobs: Did so. The cognition was that an internal variable in mem-allocator becomes a value it never should. After that I made my own allocator, and then I got SEGFAULTs. But the original application worked with my allocator perfectly. Hence the whole "methodicity" :-> .
17:24:03saratogaisn't that line just saying that we don't truncate/clip samples to 24 bit?
17:24:36linuxstbsaratoga: Probably, yes.
17:24:49wincentUnhelpful: ltrace works with PDa (original application) very well. But it does not want to work with simulator.
17:25:19 Join funman [0] (n=fun@rockbox/developer/funman)
17:25:24BryanJacobswell anyhow, the method I described above will work so long as each function is on its own page
17:25:41Tornehm, is the wps supposed to say "Battery: 294h 0m"? :)
17:25:46Torneit's plugged in and fully charged
17:26:05BryanJacobsTorne: maybe it's drawing just a little more than the wall can provide :-)
17:26:15funmanTorne: it means the power consumption of your target has never been measured
17:26:26Tornefunman: it has, honest
17:26:31BryanJacobsor maybe it's just like
17:26:45Torneit displays the right value under other circumstances
17:26:58Torneit's just ipodvideo
17:27:08funmanwhat does system > rockbox info say ?
17:27:22Torne98% 294h 0m
17:28:11Tornebattery status says charged, with ibat=0mA
17:28:43Torneso all indication is that it's fully charged and just sitting there running off the usb power
17:28:47funmanTorne: did you check r21565 ?
17:29:45Torneif i pull the usb cable it immediately becomes the number i expect
17:30:18saratogawhich player?
17:31:12funmanTorne: i believe when charging, the number displayed is the time needed until 100% charged ?
17:31:23BryanJacobsthat's a long time to cap things off
17:31:28Tornefunman: that's possible. i've not really paid attention to it
17:31:33AsaelReitercan somebody add me to ?
17:31:40Tornebut it says "charged", not charging, for the status
17:31:52Torneand it's with the charging patch so it is able to pull 500mA from the USB port
17:32:01Tornethe PCF says there is no current flowing in or out of the battery
17:32:21saratogai didn't even know we tried to estimate charging time
17:32:30funmanAsaelReiter: what is your wiki name ? i can give you writing rights so you could do it yourself ;)
17:32:36wincentUnhelpful: ltrace gets stuck on SDL_Init . What do you think of it?
17:33:12Tornethere's no CURRENT_USB definition for ipods
17:33:17Tornemaybe that's the culprit?
17:33:33Torneit only has CURRENT_{NORMAL,BACKLIGHT,RECORD}
17:33:43wincentDoes anybody have an experience how to run the simulator under ltrace?
17:33:49AsaelReiterfunman: my wiki name is AsaelReiter
17:34:02saratogathats not defined for anything but archos, are you sure its still used?
17:34:18Torneit looks uses in powermgmt.c, yes
17:34:36Torneunder a complicated set of conditions that you can look at for yourself :)
17:34:46Tornebut which i believe does apply to the ipod
17:35:00linuxstbAdding a #warning would confirm..., this makes it rather unclear what CURRENT_USB is supposed ot be
17:35:50TorneI've not really used it with usb power connected but not in usb mode before
17:35:54 Quit petur ("and this concludes our afternoon session")
17:35:56Torneso had not previously noticed
17:36:10saratogai don't understand how you would estimate battery charging time using a single current number . . .
17:36:15funmanAsaelReiter: now you should be able to modify the wiki
17:36:34Tornesaratoga: it's a really rough guess :)
17:36:44Torneoh wait
17:36:46Torneno, i see what yo umean
17:37:17Torneit's not using a single number
17:37:23Torneit's CURRENT_MAX_CHG - runcurrent()
17:38:03Torne...and CURRENT_MAX_CHG is not defined for most targets either
17:38:06saratogadefined for a total of two targets
17:38:11Torneit defaults to 350
17:38:11saratoga1 unsupported
17:38:14Tornewhich is entirely arbitrary
17:38:29AsaelReiterAnd thanks again for the work on the AMS models.
17:38:48Torneso it is indeed working out how long it takes for the last 2%
17:38:53Tornewhich the power controller is ignoring anyway
17:38:57saratogai don't think the logic in there even works anyway
17:39:00 Join barrywardell_ [0] (
17:39:01Torneand it's doing it based on entirely bogus values
17:39:03saratogaat least for a lipoly battery
17:39:06Torneokay then :)
17:39:08 Quit barrywardell_ (Remote closed the connection)
17:39:27Tornethe pcf has happily stopped charging at what rockbox thinks is 98%
17:39:43saratogai think for that to work you'd want to ask the charge controller how much current its feeding the battery like I htink the gigabeatS does
17:39:52Torneanyway, that answers the question
17:40:11saratogaalthough just disabling that on targets without CURRENT_MAX_CHG would probably be the best solution
17:40:23TorneYah, possibly..

17:42:07funmanAsaelReiter: if you want to help with the Clip port, something that doesn't need programming skills is looking at keymap (I remember radio screen keymap is pretty bad, but perhaps i'm confused with the Fuze keymap..)

17:44:54Torneyeah, it's not the charging time..
17:45:16Torneif i let it discharge a bit then plug it in again it comes up with a charging time, which is a couple minutes and goes down too fast (because the numbers are wrong)
17:45:48Tornebut once it fills up and the charging icon vanishes it immediately goes to being huge again. :)

17:49:37linuxstbLambdaCalculus37: Things are a bit unreliable, so it depends on what versions of things you're using. Are you using iBugger-0.1e and latest SVN? Also, the address 0x22000000

17:58:13linuxstbLambdaCalculus37: The syntax for has changed slightly - you need to give it both an execute address and stack address. Rockbox sets its own stack, so I just use 0 for that.
17:58:28linuxstbLambdaCalculus37: I go into diagnostics mode, then Sleep -> Deep Sleep Test

19:30:29PaulJamJdGordon|: well, i tried a cuesheet on my h300 and i can at least confirm that there is something wrong when the WPS has viewports (at least that was the common factor for the themes i tried). What happens for me is that the tilie always shows that from the first song when the WPS has viewports. a wps with no viewports shows the correct title. one thing that may give a clue is that upon entering a non-VP WPS the wrong title (from the first song) is sh
19:30:29PaulJamown for a split second and then changes to the right title.

20:47:23pixelmaJdGordon|: widecabbie has viewports but still draws in the main screen
20:49:51pixelmaI should update and try on one of my targets and my theme which has quite a lot of viewports but nothing in the "main screen"
20:51:28LambdaCalculus37The GoGear SA9200 needs a Cabbiev2 port still.
20:51:38LambdaCalculus37The LCD is 128x160 on that one.
20:54:22JdGordon|pixelma: umm, does it actually draw anything in the main viewport? I'm pretty sure we made it so if any viewports are defined nothing will draw in the default one
20:55:54pixelmaprogress bar and some icons (hold etc.) are defined before the first %V
20:56:34JdGordon|defined is ok, where do they actually get drawn?
20:56:40pixelmaI still have the file open in my text editor, if you want I can paste it somewhere
20:56:40JdGordon|the tags to draw them i mean
20:56:58JdGordon|na better not.. need to work :p
20:57:57pixelmawell, progress bar is only one tag now so I assume it's "define and draw" and I meant the %xd tags for the battery icons
20:58:22pixelmaand hold icons etc.

22:45:59JdGordon|currently being on the mailing list
22:46:05LambdaCalculus37It works, but it's not what we call "supported".
22:46:22saratogaits definately not going to be supported while we're probably not clocking the SD card correctly
22:46:58pixelmanice, with cuesheet support enabled I get a data abort on my c200 (with an older build which I wanted to try for comparison reasons first)
22:47:16Hillshumwe "could" release without SD card support right?

23:04:50gevaertsI think that buffer array should be replaced by a pointer, and it should use plugin_get_buffer(). That won't break on code changes and it will always use every possible byte. If that's done, getting the audio buffer for larger files is also easier to implement

23:31:28Hillshumthere's a certain button combo that should reset. google should know it
23:31:46AlexPmenu + select
23:32:06AlexPyou might have to toggle old on then off beforehand
23:32:16webguest21cool worked
23:32:38webguest21is there an easier way to update songs without having to reinstall rockbox everytime it seems
23:33:04AlexPThat is not normal, of course
23:33:18AlexPAnd when did you have to reinstall?
23:34:15stripwaxwebguest21 - you can just copy the song onto your ipod .. why do you think you need to reinstall rockbox just to update your songs?
23:34:37webguest21i just had installed rockbox decided i didn't like the songs so i pluged it in and when i unplugged it was back to the ipod firmware
23:34:53AlexPRockbox can dual boot
23:34:55stripwaxwebguest21 - you can reboot (hold menu+select)
23:35:00Hillshumreboot and you will be back to Rockbox
23:35:13stripwaxperhaps your Hold switch was on: that will cause it to reboot to Apple operating system instead of Rockbox
23:35:30stripwaxor perhaps your rockbox installation is corrupted (read the screen carefully when it boots - it should say if this is the case)
