00:18:38jtrenchardHello, any developers who could help me with my iriver H10, latest build lcd isn't working properly.

00:21:07pixelmawhat happens and when?
00:21:53jtrenchardBasically when I turn on my player the screen seems all out of sync.
00:22:26jtrenchardI wrote a bug report (FS #10557) for it if anybody is interested.
00:26:20pixelmahmm, I have no idea and don't have an H10, guess you have to stick around with this to get an answer
00:26:23 Quit ender` (" The difference between 'involvement' and 'commitment' is like an eggs-and-ham breakfast: the chicken was 'involved' - the p")

00:34:43kugelI doubt changes to rbutil break a lcd.
00:35:16jtrenchardyes, it does work, r22464 and r22466 don't work though.

00:39:00pixelmajtrenchard: can you look into rockbox-info.txt of a build that doesn't work (from your computer), it is in the .rockbox folder
00:39:19jtrenchardok, let me just reload rockbox to a broken build
00:39:41pixelmayou could already take that text file from the sim
00:39:46pixelmaerr... zip
00:40:11jtrenchardoh, ok
00:40:28pixelmaalthough I don't know if that zip is stored somewhere by the Utility
00:40:49pixelmaor if - then where
00:41:01jtrenchardok, i'm in the .txt, what should I be looking for
00:41:30saratogajust pastebin the whole thing
00:42:53pixelmathe Target: line at the top is what I think could be interesting
00:43:10 Join intrados_ [0] (
00:43:18jtrenchard"Target: h10" is that right then?
00:45:40saratogaDIRIVER_H10 is for the 20GB or larger HD based one
00:45:45pixelmahmm... I can't see a difference between small and big H10 builds there at the moment
00:46:06saratogasee tools/configure line 1182
00:46:45saratogais that the H10 you have?
00:47:18pixelmaI compare to a rockbox-info.txt from an 5/6GB H10 I downloaded from the current build page
00:47:50pixelmasaratoga: he said he had a small on
00:47:53robin0800jtrenchard: there is a 5GB and a 20Gb which do you have?
00:48:06jtrenchardI have a 5gb
00:48:07CIA-61New commit by mcuelenaere (r22467): Touchscreen list handling: ignore presses close to the scrollbar when it's on the right, this is similar as how it's handled when the scrollbar is on ...
00:50:25PSPdemonmcuelenaere: so the 777+ should have the same compat as the 777 right?
00:50:43saratogawell that svn commit slowed my building to a crawl, but looking at the makefiles, I'm pretty sure the defines in that pastebin are for the large H10
00:50:50mcuelenaerePSPdemon: yes, AFAICS the VX777+ seems to be completely the same as the VX777
00:51:04mcuelenaere(which isn't true for all Onda devices, like the VX787 has a Rockchip)
00:51:19PSPdemonyea and the 777LE is cc1600 based
00:51:40pixelmarockbox-info.txt has Target: h10_5 in yesterday's daily build, the current build only has h10 - even for the 5/6GB zip, and the file is noticably larger (over 1MB)
00:51:46PSPdemonim guessing thats the one you got it confused for
00:52:20saratogapixelma: just compiled it and todays build is definately wrong
00:52:25pixelmaI could imagine that domonoky1's commit screwed something up in a way that a big H10 build gets packaged for the small one too
00:52:33PSPdemonmy old sansa broke so im looking into possibly getting one of those onda's as a replacement
00:52:45kugelmcuelenaere: Hm, why not let it scroll instead of having dead zones?
00:53:03mcuelenaerePSPdemon: well they're still unsupported, but Rockbox works pretty well on them has Target: h10 while my build gets Target: h10_5gb
00:53:10PSPdemonhow about audio?
00:53:43saratogakugel: i wondered about the Sansa e200 keymap if it could be changed to shutdown if I hold power and menu at the same time?
00:53:53PSPdemonso far by the way it seems most everything works on it
00:53:54saratogaevidently my fingers are too large since i often hold both and the player does nothing
00:54:07pixelmasaratoga: that's what was in yesterday's daily too (which is actually r22462-090822)
00:54:11saratogaor is power + menu already mapped to something?
00:54:11mcuelenaerekugel: the dead zones are all the corners, for example when I'm scrolling using the scrollbar it could make the 'pointer' jump a bit to the left (into the list itself). By ignoring that part I don't accidentaly press anything
00:54:29mcuelenaerePSPdemon: audio works, as far as the hardware allows it to
00:54:51mcuelenaeres/all the corners/all the borders/
00:54:59kugelsaratoga: should be possible, but I wouldn't want that in SVN
00:55:14saratogawhats your reasoning?
00:55:15mcuelenaerethey're not literally 'dead', but they don't linearly scale back to LCD coordinates
00:55:26saratogathe proximity of the buttons seems like a general annoyance to me
00:55:32kugelmy fingers aren't to large, I'd need two to turn it off
00:56:12mcuelenaerePSPdemon: has a known issues list
00:57:05mcuelenaerePSPdemon: keep in mind internal flash won't be working for a long time, if at all
00:57:24PSPdemonso it loads rockbox via sd?
00:57:24kugelmcuelenaere: I mean those areas could act as if the scrollbar was used
00:57:45mcuelenaerekugel: ah, well they sort of do already
00:57:55kugelthe dead area is quite large depending on the scrollbar width.
00:57:57PSPdemonor is this loaded via usb onto ram?
00:57:59 Quit robin0800 (Remote closed the connection)
00:58:13mcuelenaereyou can scroll by holding your finger/stylus/whatever in the list up or down
00:58:17mcuelenaerebut the scrollbar is faster
00:58:25mcuelenaerePSPdemon: yes, SD
00:58:55saratogakugel: I mean ignore the menu press and power down whenever power is held, even if menu is also held
00:58:59mcuelenaerekugel: sure, but I don't think users are going to 'click' on list items at the far right
00:59:18saratogaso something like if(POWER||(POWER&&MENU))
00:59:25pixelmahmm but domonoky1's commit says it only uses the info.txt, which wouldn't explain why it's wron on the server
00:59:31mcuelenaere(and I could've also used the icons width instead of the scrollbar width)
00:59:34kugelsaratoga: not sure if that's easily doable
00:59:53kugelmcuelenaere: I was going to suggest that
00:59:53saratogaok if i get time i'll look into it
01:00:13PSPdemonwhen you mean "as far as the hardware allows it to", what do you exactly mean?
01:03:20PSPdemondid i kill the chat? :P
01:13:41mcuelenaerePSPdemon: the audio codec isn't *that* great, it doesn't allow real volume control so software has to do that

01:16:05webguest55hi i just installed rockbox but i don't know how to load apple's os firmwire can anyone help me please?
01:16:37mcuelenaerekugel: do icons have a fixed width?
01:17:28kugelmcuelenaere: no, but there's icon_get_width()
01:17:30webguest55please i realy need to know how to load my original os
01:17:31pixelmawebguest55: I think the manual can ;)
01:17:44webguest55ill try again
01:17:46kugel(see draw_title() in the same file)
01:18:28jtrenchardwebguest55: do you mean uninstall rockbox?
01:18:55mcuelenaerekugel: ok (I suppose you mean get_icon_width()?)
01:19:09pixelmaI thought webguest55 means dual boot
01:19:23jtrenchardThat's why I was asking
01:19:38kugelyes :)
01:19:51webguest55no i mean dual boot with rockbox
01:20:26webguest55i want to know how to load my original os at the same time
01:20:41jtrenchardwebguest55: which ipod??
01:21:04webguest55what do i have to press when my ipod is booting up for my original os to load up?
01:21:18webguest55ipod photo 4g
01:21:23mcuelenaerekugel: what if no icons are displayed?
01:21:54linuxstbwebguest55: Either hold menu, or turn on the hold switch.
01:22:04pixelmathere is a headline in the manual called "starting the original firmware" (and the pdf is also searchable), just a hint ;)
01:22:06mcuelenaereoh nvm, it seems to take a default width then
01:22:19webguest55ok thank you :)
01:22:21kugelmcuelenaere: what does it do when the scrollbar is on the left in this case?
01:22:35PSPdemonmcuelenaere: now thats not fun... so all volume controls are handled by software -_-
01:22:44PSPdemonguessing that its not that great in sound quality?
01:22:51mcuelenaerePSPdemon: blame Ingenic..
01:23:02mcuelenaereor ChinaChip for not having a dedicated audio chip
01:23:30mcuelenaerekugel: haven't tried with a theme without icons yet

01:26:22saratogayes read above
01:27:47jtrenchardsaratoga: right... is there anything I could do to get it to work then??
01:27:50pixelmajtrenchard: there is something wrong on the server so that the build on the server behind the 5/6GB link is actually a 20GB one
01:28:07jtrenchardoh, ok
01:30:21jtrenchardI hope it's fixed in 9 hours, my caffeine supply has run out, so i'm going now.

03:48:04UnhelpfulJdGordon: i had a thought, about being able to resize buffer_alloc. you had mentioned it being unsafe to force everything to re-allocate. i think a safe way to deal with it might be to have a callback registered for each allocation, that can be used to fix up any pointers into it when it is moved. for things that are resizing an existing buffer, a new call would be added that doesn't register a callback. the convenient way to handle the ca
03:48:04Unhelpful itself would just be to make it the first 4B of the buffer segment

03:48:52MG_Man#rockbox-community is for more general questions like "What DAP should I get?" and such?

19:28:34kkurbjunJdGordon: yeah, I might be interested eventually, what really needs to be done in the near term is adding in all of the device initialization that we don't do right now. That takes looking through docs and the linux source to make sure that everything is being handled properly. we need to go through that first before we start to flash the device anyway, so i think it'll be a while yet before that is done.
19:30:12jtrenchardIs anybody here familiar with getting Festival to work in the rockbox utility for linux??

20:42:39Domonokyso many answers :-) i take the ignore option with wildcards.
20:43:05Domonokyanyone have a better idea for the UI of this? current:
20:44:52jtrenchardI was thinking about the photo.... I you want I can take some similar ones but of my H10, as for the rest of the UI, I say leave it, I hate anything that has too much skinning.
20:46:23jtrenchardAlthough saying that I do like your ideas for only creating talk files for a specific extension

20:47:19jtrenchardI also take the option with the wildcards.
20:48:13Domonokyjtrenchard: the general UI will stay, i just meant the new option to ignore files. maybe someone has a better idea to present this.
20:48:57jtrenchardYes I realised that....
20:49:20jtrenchardafter typing without reading properly!
20:49:41Domonokyofcourse it would be nice to present photos of the currently selected target instead of this old archos photo. but thats not something i want to tackle now :-)

22:10:11AlexPI'm still looking for any better suggestions about what to call the "other" button on the gigabeat remote (it is called "speaker" at the moment).... Any ideas?
22:13:04jtrenchardAlexP: Don't take this seriously, it's just a joke but have you thought about a "Rockbox" button, just like that button on my linux laptop that people call the "Windows" key.
22:13:27AlexPjtrenchard: There is no Rockbox logo on it
22:13:38AlexPThere is however something that looks a bit like a speaker
22:13:47jtrenchardI know,, I said it was a joke
22:13:53DomonokyAlexP: what does this button do in rockbox ?
22:14:01AlexPThis is for the manual - I need a name for things like "press play"
22:14:23jtrenchardSelf destruct button?
22:14:26AlexPDomonoky: A few things, but if I described it by function I'd call it menu I think
22:14:40AlexPDomonoky: It is called "DSP" in the code (no idea why)
22:15:02AlexPDomonoky: I guess I could call it menu, and then rely on a picture in the manual to tell people which that is
22:15:20***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
22:15:20Domonoky:-) so why not call i menu (and label it acordingly in a image)
22:15:32bluebrotherrelabel the physical remote :)
22:15:53AlexPDomonoky: Mainly because there are no remote images in the manual as of yet, and the image on it doesn't suggest menu
22:16:00bluebrother"for using the remote with Rockbox you need to scrap of the label of that button and draw a different icon onto it" ;-)
22:16:02AlexPIt looks something like a speaker :)
22:16:08AlexPbluebrother: nice :)
22:16:18*bluebrother wonders if it's a mute button in the OF
22:16:36AlexPmight be, but it has a little + next to it too :)
22:16:44Domonokywe often dont respect the label on buttons, so i think its no harm to call it "menu"
22:16:44AlexPI've never used the OF, so couldn't say
22:17:12AlexPyeah, probably best

22:30:29AlexPbluebrother: Got time for a latex question whilst you are here?
22:31:02AlexPCool :)
22:32:08AlexPSome of the button tables in the manual are very ugly and hard to read (see page 29 of the H120 manual) for an example. What do you think to adding either fient alternating colours to the rows, or a feint line inbetween rows, or just a space in between rows to better seperate them?
22:32:19AlexPAnd then the harder question: any idea how? :)

22:38:23jtrenchardOk, thanks

22:38:37*bluebrother wonders why exactly this is written down in the wiki :o
22:38:56bluebrotherAlexP: you meand colors in rows or columns?
22:39:04jtrenchardIs it written in the wiki?
22:39:16bluebrotheryep, check RockboxUtilityDevelopment
22:39:36AlexPbluebrother: rows mainly - I think the column seperation is not too bad, but with the rows it can get very hard to see what buttons belong to what description
22:39:53jtrenchardMy web searching skill are getting worse by the hour :)
22:40:37bluebrotherAlexP: well, colored rows would be nice (and are definitely possible), though AFAIK they aren't possible automatically :/
22:40:58 Quit dmb (Read error: 113 (No route to host))
22:41:32AlexPbluebrother: So you'ld have to add \colorx or \colory (or whatever the command is) to each line of each table?
22:42:01MausPIt's a little long-winded for me to fill out registration from, ask for wiki write permission, etc just for this one entry.
22:42:02MausPmaybe somebody else can do the entry
22:42:20AlexPbluebrother: Or a thin line between rows maybe (if that is easier?
22:42:34bluebrotherand specifying the background color on each row is lots of work, but worse is that it's going to break with \opts in the tables.
22:42:43 Nick YpsyZNC is now known as Ypsy (
22:43:42bluebrotherMausP: does this mean you expect someone doing the work for you?
22:43:59bluebrotherAlexP: you would need to add the line yourself too :(
22:44:44bluebrothermaybe there's something tabularx can do for us, but I've got to check the details (and understand them ... let's see if I manage that)
22:44:51AlexPThat might break less on opts though, if you could just have e.g. \hline after the description
22:45:00AlexPbluebrother: Good luck :)
22:46:08 Quit n1s ("Lämnar")
22:46:30bluebrotheryeah, but it will make tables look ugly that don't really need it.
22:47:12bluebrothertypesetting is really something hard.
22:47:39AlexPI feared as much, but some of the table are just urgh at the moment :)
22:48:10AlexPbluebrother: What about having spacing between rows? (I suspect this is also hard...)
22:48:38bluebrotherindeed. Though with the current complexity for the manual I'm wondering if there are better formats than LaTeX (that can get converted to LaTeX and HTML)
22:48:51AlexPWord? :P
22:49:06*AlexP hides
22:49:19bluebrotherspacing should be rather easy. It might loook equally bad though.
22:49:24jtrenchard... OpenDocument?
22:49:38bluebrotherthat's similarly bad.
22:49:42AlexPThe trouble is all the opting on various features
22:49:54bluebrotherunreadable xml packed in a zip file. How can one diff that?
22:50:28jtrenchardA sprinkle of fairy dust??? Ok then I suppose not.
22:50:35bluebrotherAlexP: opt is one annoying thing, but we might be able to replace that with gcc. We need gcc anyway for building the manual, so it's not a real drawback.
22:50:38MausPbluebrother: I don't expect that others do the work for me. Just asking. But for me it is no problem, if there is no entry in the IpodAccessories wiki page
22:51:07AlexPjtrenchard: Also, how do you include/exclude/change things like buttons/screenshots for each different target?
22:51:40bluebrotherMausP: how do you expect someone who doesn't know you (a) to know your wiki name and (b) how to handle your password? Or are you talking about putting the data in the wiki page instead of signing up?
22:51:51jtrenchardOk, opendocument isn't the best for this application.
22:52:14AlexPjtrenchard: Have a look at the manual source, it is slightly complicated :)
22:52:29bluebrotherjtrenchard: the manual has been an OOo document in the past (some years ago). Moving to LaTeX was the best thing we could have done that time.
22:52:58bluebrotherthe problem is that devs tend to port to more and more targets, making the manual more and more complex.
22:53:06bluebrothersomeone stop this porting!
22:53:12AlexPWe should ban it!
22:53:14jtrenchardYes i can see the point now.
22:53:25AlexPOnly20 supported targets allowed at any one time :)
22:53:47Domonokyso with new targets, we should just drop the old ones :-)
22:53:53bluebrotherdrop those stupid AMS targets! We already have Sandisk players, no need for more!

23:19:31*AlexP is not being overly successful at his reading latex documentation to make it do coloured rows
