01:00:43stripwaxsaratoga - so how many muls is that, total, in IFFT8? the inner dct code in tremor / codeclib uses 4 muls in butterfly_16 (so equivalent to 8 complex pairs, I guess)
01:02:39stripwaxbut I the arrangement of data is different (we actually operate on two halves of a 16-point DCT at the same time, or something like that). So I guess the IFFT8 is equivalent to something like 'half' of butterfly_32
01:02:57 Join linuxstb [0] (n=linuxstb@rockbox/developer/linuxstb)

01:07:50saratogastripwax: 4 muls
01:08:00stripwaxsaratoga - are you sure? looking at liba52/imdct.c, it's only got 4 muls total in ifft8 (so equiv to 4 muls total in tremor/codeclib butterfly_16)
01:08:07stripwaxah, you type faster than I do.

01:56:27stripwaxsaratoga ok so I think I understand one issue/different between tremor and a52: a52 has two block sizes to choose from, and tremor has a range of possible block sizes that the encoder could choose to use. So a52 has been coded to take advantage of two hardcodec (effectively) split-radix FFTs for the two blocksizes
01:56:42 Join HBK [0] (
01:57:04stripwaxwhereas tremor has been coded with a regular (but perhaps not optimal?) generic butterfly loop.

02:08:14MG_ManSeems like a strange target
02:08:22MG_ManBut I guess if someone has enough interest
02:08:26casainhowe have already the LCD working
02:09:20stripwaxcasainho - if it's a dev board, do they provide drivers already, and datasheets, etc? assuming so, seems like the porting should be easy (compared to most other targets). that's "easy" not, like, actually easy, but still
02:11:14casainhothey provide scheamtic, all datasheets and some code:
02:11:36casainhowe think in making a kind of home/car player based on Rockbox :-)
02:11:54Strife89Hardware looks nifty.
02:12:50stripwaxit does look pretty. planning on using sdcard storage or something else?
02:12:59casainhowe need just to put that hardware inside a case and provide +5Volts to it :-)
02:13:39casainhoyes, SD Card. But later try HDD... I know that there are many people looking for targets that have HDD

09:09:04funmanit might be worth checking that DATA_END is set and not another bit
09:09:34FlynDiceI'm thinking if we use this signal it may not give time for the fifo to empty into the uncached buffer before we then memcopy from uncached to buf, does this make sense?
09:10:48FlynDicefor a read that is
09:10:57FlynDiceie the card may be done sending data to the fifo but the dma transfer is not done yet
09:11:05funmanhmm right, this only tells us the data transfer has been done to/from the fifo

09:13:51funmandid you try reverting r19714 ? (290d6d38294aecfa5c400e08ce8ccb1fd21fd5c4 in git)
09:14:29FlynDiceno, what changed there?
09:14:42funmani moved end of transfer signal from DMA module to SD module
09:14:55funmanit made the code simpler, but perhaps also incorrect :/
09:15:34funmani believe because PCM & SD didn't signal end of transfer in the same way
09:16:13funmanif we use DMA module to notify end of transfer, we're sure all data has been moved

15:01:25markunyes, we have it
15:01:54TheSeventhen compare it to the s5l8700 one.
15:02:13TheSeventhe s5l8700 preliminary DS isn't 100% accurate, but at least most things match
15:04:52TheSevendoesn't look too similar
15:05:35TheSeventhe s3c2440 seems to have ECC linked pretty tight into the NAND controller, while s5l8700's ecc is almost separate
15:06:09TheSevendon't think you can re-use much code there
15:06:41Bob_Cok, I kinda expected that. IME Samsung never do the same thing twice
15:08:02TheSevenBob_C: do you already know what kind of FTL is running on that target? (which target is it, btw?)
15:08:36Bob_CI am working on the Lyre project, we can use whatever FTL we want ;)
15:09:01TheSeventhen don't use the crap I'm currently reversing on the ipods...
15:15:16Bob_CAny suggestions for an FTL?
15:15:50TorneThere are several in Linux.
15:16:09Tornethere is also work to develop one as a layer on top of UBI which is possibly nicer :)
15:16:19 Quit fanta2 ("CGI:IRC (Ping timeout)")
15:16:20Tornebut generally they are a bit of a black art
15:16:29Tornemost of them are very patented-y :)
15:18:38Bob_CWhat about yaffs?
15:18:55TorneFlash filesystems are not FTLs
15:19:02Tornetotally different concept
15:19:57Bob_Cok, I'm not very familiar with these things
15:20:07Torneif you use a flash filesystem (jffs/yaffs/ubifs/etc) you will not be able to expose the disk as USB mass storage
15:20:26Torneand of course you would have to actually implement that filesystem for rockbox :)
15:20:29Torneinstead of being able to use FAT
15:20:41Torneyou'd also need to implement MTP or some other file transfer protocol that doesn't rely on MSC
15:20:59Tornean FTL turns a flash device into something that looks enough like a normal disk that you can format it as FAT
15:21:16Bob_CI'd like to ditch FAT anyway
15:21:43TorneWell, unless you are also going to implement MTP and a flash filesystem for rockbox in the course of porting to your hardware I would suggest you leave that for later :)
15:22:01Zagorwell you can use MSC, but all usb hosts (computers) have to support whatever file system you choose...
15:22:24TorneZagor: well, yes. This is unlikely to be useful to most normal humans :)
15:22:30Zagorindeed :)
15:22:38Tornemost of the *good* flash filesystems are not even in the mainline linux kernel
15:22:47Torneso 99% of even linux machines won't be able to mount them
15:22:55Tornelet alone other OSes :)
15:23:17Torneand you can't use MSC very easily even then, except to read.
15:23:23ZagorBob_C: fat is near-perfect for big-file media players. don't fall into the old == bad trap.
15:23:26TorneMSC doesn't understand erase blocks
15:23:43Torneyou can do a trivial readonly 'FTL' which lets it be read as a block device
15:23:44Tornebut supporting writing over SCSI is hard
15:24:03Bob_CMy concern with FAT is the licensing issue
15:24:39ZagorTorne: well if you have FTL you do block device emulation anyway, so supporting scsi on top shouldn't be difficult
15:25:17GaloisFAT doesn't support weird characters in filenames. This annoys me quite a bit, even on media players. Although not enough to do anything about it.
15:25:55ZagorGalois: right, that is a definite downside
15:25:57*GodEater__ has plenty of weird characters in the filenames on his iPod.
15:26:10Galoisby weird characters I mean things like :
15:26:28GodEater__you literally mean ":"
15:26:35Galoisyes, the drive colon
15:26:37ZagorBob_C: the fat patent can be worked around. see for example
15:26:55GodEater__ah right
15:27:07GodEater__I wouldn't have called a colon a weird character :)
15:27:09TorneThe FAT patent is not the port's issue, anyway
15:27:32Torneany licensing issues with FAT that might exist, which is highly debateable, aren't specific to any one player
15:27:53Bob_CWell, I guess that's your opinion
15:28:10Tornewhether there's an issue is opinion, but whether it's a port issue is fact :)
15:28:17Torneif it's an issue it's an issue for rockbox as a whole
15:28:22GodEater__no it's fact. If the FAT patent becomes an issue, then it will apply to all of rockbox
15:28:30Torneit's not something to care about specific to one port.
15:29:05Bob_CThe Lyre project is not just a port, it's actually an Open Hardware player.
15:29:17Tornethe software on it is just a port
15:30:00GodEater__in theory in could run other software than Rockbox
15:30:02Torneanyway. if you desperately wanted to avoid FAT the easiest way would be to still implement an FTL, but format the disk as ext2.
15:30:21Torneporting ext2 for rockbox would be much easier than porting a flash fs
15:30:25GodEater__but that still means implementing a whole new file system in Rockbox
15:30:37TorneBut it's *less* work than doing UBIFS+MTP or similar :)
15:30:44GodEater__and you then limit your target audience to people who own OSes that can mount ext2 devices
15:30:53TorneThe best option really is FAT, IMO.
15:31:03GodEater__which is why we implemented it :)
15:31:04Tornebut if you want to rule that out then flash filesystems are a long way from being second best
15:31:16Bob_CIs MTP not viable?
15:31:20Torneso i suspect you are going to want an FTL regardless
15:31:59GodEater__it's certainly viable, but again, you limit your audience. There are those amongst us who like our Rockbox as block devices
15:32:02TorneMTP is perfectly possible in theory but it's a lot of work; it's a complete departure from the way we work at the moment.
15:32:05ZagorBob_C: one of the reasons people like rockbox is that we are not limited to mtp
15:32:08Torneand not everyone will *want* MTP
15:32:16GodEater__I won't want it for example
15:33:21TorneBob_C: Finding an FTL you can port that will work and doesn't have licensing issues is already going to be difficult. Doing it for a flash FS, and hten *also* implementing MTP on top of that, will be waaaay harder
15:33:42ZagorBob_C: fat licensing is not an issue. use fat and focus on the real work instead.
15:34:10*GodEater__ thinks Zagor should write a "WhyNo[InsertYourFavouriteFileSystemHereThatIsn'tFat]InRockbox" document to go with the "WhyNoMallocInRockbox" one
15:34:17Bob_CI would like to at least provide a choice, if MS hadn't sued TomTom I probably wouldn't be so concerned.
15:34:28TorneBob_C: Using an FTL provides a choice
15:34:38Zagorthere is more than enough work to do without inventing new huge tasks that aren't necessary
15:34:38TorneYou can use any block device based filesystem which someone implements support for in rockbox
15:34:53TorneAnd using an FTL means you can *start off by testing it with FAT* which is already implemented
15:35:05Torneif you later really decide you don't want fat you can do some other FS later on top of the same FTL.
15:35:11ZagorBob_C: you are only concerned because you are uninformed. read up and you'll see that it's not anything to worry about.
15:37:15Bob_CLOL, this is like being at work
15:37:49GodEater__Bob_C: welcome in ;)

15:41:12Bob_CWell, maybe we can avoid some pain by not using NAND - the hardware is not well defined yet.
15:41:48Tornea NOR bootflash with the first stage loader, and then a uSD slot or soldered eMMC device, would be easier if you have support for that
15:41:56Zagorpluggable cards have many benefit. built-in ftl is one...
15:42:20Tornean di would hope your SoC has at least *one* SD/MMC controller..
15:43:51Bob_CI like that idea. Any downsides - cost/size I guess?
15:44:04TorneThe slot has a small cost associated :)
15:44:10Tornebut that's what eMMC is for
15:44:26Torneembedded MMC is basically an MMC card, with the plastic packaging removed, soldered directly to the PCB
15:44:30Torneit's not pluggable
15:44:52Tornebut it uses the standard MMC interface and thus it's easy to hook up and it takes care of flash trnaslation
15:45:14Tornethey are very very small. comparable/smaller to NAND parts
15:45:37aaron424Is the cowon D2+ the same hardware as the D2?
15:45:44TheSeveni'd personally go for pluggable though, so µSD
15:45:49ZagorI would suggest using pluggable if possible. it allows the user to select memory size and keeps a single base unit at a low price.
15:46:08TorneWell, the usual option there is to have one soldered and then also a slot. :)
15:46:19Bob_CZagor: that's what appeals to me
15:46:19Torneit depends on your use cases
15:46:34ZagorTorne: yeah but I don't quite see the point of that other than marketing
15:46:35Tornemost SoCs have at lesat two, often three, sd/mmc controllers
15:46:43TorneZagor: It means you don't have your OS on a removeable card
15:47:03Tornewhich is a consumer friendly feature. that may not matter for us folks :)

16:53:29BdN3504convenience, linux is vm windows is my native os

16:53:54GodEater__well if you're determined to make it hard for yourself, you go right ahead
16:54:04GodEater__I think you'll need to write your own Makefile though
16:54:53BdN3504ok, thanks. i'll see what i can do. is this a commandline tool or does it have a gui?
16:55:15BdN3504is it documented somewhere?
16:55:29GodEater__only in the code
16:55:46BdN3504hmmm, so no man pages or something like that?
16:56:00GodEater__that's what "No documentation" means :)
16:56:25BdN3504why thank you. i will go on and try to compile
16:56:28GodEater__you build it, put it in your path, change directory to the root of your player, run it.
16:56:45GodEater__there are no command line arguments, no help, no nothing.
16:56:59BdN3504ahh ok
16:57:23GodEater__if you want to make it a bit more friendly, go right ahead :)
16:58:47BdN3504did you use that tool on a windows machine?
17:00:56GodEater__hell nop
17:01:05GodEater__I won't let windows in the house
17:02:22BdN3504k i guess "that's all folks", i'll be back once i'm done finished compiling and testing... Do you think it's a bad idea to put the binaries on the wiki database page?

17:39:52Torneif you've tried following the instructions and it's gone wrong/not working, say exactly what you did and what happened and someone might be able to help
17:40:07Torneif you've not tried following the instructions then no, it's unlikely that anyone is going to go through it with you :)
17:40:15MiDI attempted to do an installation using the recommended Rockbox Installation Utility

17:41:55MiDfunman: After the failure to launch, I tried just that. Used mkams to write the modified bootloader, and extracted the build to the root folder.
17:42:23MiDHowever, the bootloader failed to launch
17:42:26funmanbootloader installation should work
17:42:34MiDand went straight into the Sansa firmware

17:59:20taketwothe annoying thing about that is, the player freezes for some seconds i dont know why it should have something to do with the theme. i have a couple of 100mb mp3´s on it and with when it skips to them he just freezes
17:59:51 Quit funman ("free(random());")
18:00:14Torneer, if you skip ahead past a 100mb file then yes, it has to buffer the new file
18:00:23Tornethere's not enough memory to have buffered that in advance
18:00:48Strife89taketwo: What build are you using?
18:01:14taketwowhere can i look for that? i used the latest biuld on the site

18:03:47taketwook so i have to live with that.. i was just wondering if i adjust something wrong / oh hey great news i take a look =) thx
18:04:10domonokyand "latest build" normally means the latest development build (which is build on every source change)
18:05:44taketwosilly question, but can i just over install this build?
18:05:48Tornetaketwo: i wouldn't normally epxect it to completely freeze for several seconds..
18:05:54Torneespecially since that's a flash player
18:05:59Strife89taketwo: Yes.
18:06:02domonokytaketwo: yes, just install again.
18:06:18Strife89Torne, taketwo: Is he/ are you using dircache?
18:06:26Strife89That will help immensely.
18:06:48taketwothe freezes take some seconds with 100mb files
18:06:56Tornetaketwo: the size of the file shouldn't matter
18:06:59taketwoi dont know where can i look it up?
18:07:03Torneit only needs to read the beginning
18:07:29Strife89taketwo: Settings -> General Settings -> System -> directory cache.
18:07:33Strife89taketwo: I think.
18:08:23taketwoits on
18:09:18Strife89taketwo: What format is the file in, again?
18:09:52taketwomy music?
18:10:05Strife89taketwo: Yes.
18:10:17taketwothere all mp3
18:10:37Strife89Bit rate?
18:11:59taketwoidk not all but the most 192
18:12:33taketwosome are convertes youtube files.. so they have 96 or something i dont know
18:12:37Strife89taketwo: How about that ~100MB file?
18:12:44Tornejust to clarify: you mean you ar eplaying a playlist of just ordinary mp3s, and when you skip ahead tracks, sometimes it does nothing for several seconds before starting to play the track you skipped to?
18:13:04Strife89taketwo: That might be the issue, then. Top bitrate + big file = lag.
18:13:18Torneis it skipping *onto* the big track, or skipping *past* the big track which is the problem?
18:13:24*Strife89 leaves for a lunch break.
18:13:33 Quit Strife89 ("Lunch.")
18:13:50taketwook thx strife89
18:14:22taketwoiam browsing my database and selected a file and then skip trough
18:14:48taketwoi hope you know what i mean my english is not so good
18:15:19TorneWhat's playing when you hit skip?
18:15:24Tornea regular file, or one of hte large ones?
18:16:41taketwothere are realy much doubled files in the database and the most of them are reg. mp3´s of 130 tracks 15 are large i think
18:18:27Tornetaketwo: your ipod only has 32MB of RAM, some of which is used for rockbox. when you're just listening to music normally, we buffer ~29 MB of data up in advance
18:18:38Torneso there are no delays loading up files
18:18:56Tornewhen you skip ahead, you can end up skipping past enough tracks that there is no data buffered at all for the file that's now the one it should be playing
18:19:19Torneat this point the music will stop briefly as it starts buffering again from the track you skipped up to.
18:19:41TorneI wouldn't normally expect this to take that long on a player with no hard drive though
18:20:17Tornebut exactly how long depends on your settings a little..
18:20:23taketwodo you mean i skip to fast? or did i get it wrong
18:20:42Torneno, it's fine to skip as fast as you want
18:20:55Tornerockbox just can't *immediately* start playing the next track if you skip ahead too many
18:21:08Tornebecause it can only keep a couple of tracks loaded up at a time
18:21:33Torneif the music pauses for a second when you do that then that's probably normal behaviour...
18:21:54Torneyou might be able to reduce the time it pauses for by changing various settings but it will never go away entirely
18:22:07taketwook i got THAT. =) thx for the help anyway!
18:22:15Tornealso you may find it's quicker on a newer version
18:22:19Tornetry upgrading to 3.4 :)
18:22:34taketwoi updated a minute ago but it keeps on buffering
18:23:10Torneyes, buffering is not optional :)
18:23:24Tornefiles have to be loaded into memory before they can be played
18:23:37Tornerockbox tries to have the right files loaded up in advance whenever possible
18:23:39taketwosure its not but i thought could be faster :P
18:23:46Tornewhich works fine if you listen to a playlist in order without skipping
18:24:03Tornewell, mayb eit could be.
18:24:08taketwowell, playlists arent so my thing. i just browse all day long =)
18:24:13Tornei'm not saying there is definately nothing wrong
18:24:25Tornebut *some* delay is expected
18:24:45Torneyah, but rockbox treats everything as a playlist.
18:24:48taketwoi can live with it so its no big problem i love rockbox anyway =D
18:24:51Torneit doesn't have to be an actual .m3u file
18:25:09Tornejust picking a file from a directory or from the database creates a dynamic playlist with the files in that directory or database menu in.
18:25:25taketwoyea so the playlist i use are all of my mp3´s right
18:25:26Torneso we say playlist for everything :)
18:25:48Torneif you use the database then the playlist will be whatever was visible in the database when you picked a file
18:25:51Torneso if you go artist -> album -> track
18:25:59Tornethen the playlist will be that whole album, starting from the track you picked
18:26:18Tornebut if you just go to the tracklisting at the top level with every artist/album mixed together then the playlist will be every file on your player, starting from the track you picked.
18:26:26Tornedoes that make sense?
18:26:38taketwoyea i know what you mean
18:26:55Torneit shouldn't make any difference to buffering though
18:27:10Tornebuffering starts with the file you select and then if there is more room after that file, it loads up whever is next until it runs out of space
18:27:15Tornethe total size of the playlist doesn't matter
18:27:32Tornebut if you often change your mind about what you want to play then yes, it will hav eto rebuffer every time

20:19:23domonokycasainho: when i get the board and start coding, maybe yes. but perhaps we should just put the code into rockbox svn when we have the first code running on mini2440
20:19:38rashertomers: they were basically a subset of other fonts
20:19:49JdGordonlooks like unifont is the only one with full hebrew support :/

20:25:46JdGordonshow off :)
20:25:52*domonoky thinks mini2440 sounds much better as a target name. you will find the board under this name in the internet. so i would choose "mini2440" as target name and FriendlyARM as manufacturer :-)
20:25:58tomersrasher: About 27 characters minimum, but more can be added to add better Hebrew support ;-)
20:26:00Creposucrewhich is the context that I should use?
20:26:02Bob_CMy view is that names are not really important, but that changing things wastes time
20:26:36JdGordon is why the name is important
