02:55:45sjhafter running ipodpatcher on a newly formatted ipod video (5th gen) trying to get 3.4 to boot, I get an error can't load rockbox.ipod file not found. So I tried copying it from the .rockbox directory to the root filesystem (now in both places) and it still gives me this error... any idea where else it may look for it?
03:00:47saratogasjh: that usually means you didn't actually create the right folder, often because the zip program you used renamed some of the files as you unzipped them
03:00:47krazykitit looks for it in the .rockbox directory.

09:18:51 Join JackWinter [0] (
09:19:02LloreanZagor: Well it started out good with us finding out the voice file may be too big. Sadly, I don't know if anyone with the hardware has actually tested it yet. They seemed to prefer to complain about the fact that it got released not working than to find out if that's even what's wrong.
09:19:19LloreanI do apologize for dragging it further off topic though.
09:22:10swiftkicki realize the manual says rockbox doesn't support the e200 V2 (v03) hardware yet. so what i'm asking is, will it evar?
09:22:39swiftkickdoes anyone care that every single last supported player is out of production? =)
09:22:41swiftkickwhats the best player i can actuall find, new on the shelf, that doesnt have a clunky mechanical hard drive for storage?
09:22:53Zagorswiftkick: we are working on sansa ams, yes
09:23:09swiftkickoh yeah, and also one that doesnt somehow support steve jobs in any way shape or form? kthx =)
09:23:30Lloreanswiftkick: This channel is for questions about Rockbox. "What non-Rockbox player should I get?" doesn't really belong here.
09:23:59tomersI have a Fuze which works good enough for me. I am very satisfied from it. It is v1, though
09:24:02Zagorof course we care. but new players normally have a one-year life span, and a port often takes more than that
09:24:27swiftkickZagor: excellent. i just bought one on the off chance it would be the older supported hardware version. it wasn't ;-(
09:24:33swiftkickLlorean: you misunderstand. I was asking, what is the best player that will run rockbox =)
09:24:56Zagorswiftkick: none new on the shelf
09:25:20swiftkickLlorean: and i dont want hard drives or steve jobs in my player =)

09:27:16swiftkickor use the built in level and orientation sensors to cheat at roulette.
09:27:59swiftkicki wanted the sansa because its got flash memory expandability
09:28:01Lloreanswiftkick: He's referring to the Sandisk Fuze.
09:29:04pixelmaLlorean: you don't need to test the voice file - just look at its size and the amount of available RAM; amiconn said yesterday that it was too big (already for V1 Recorder, so FM/V2 Recorder even more and probably for the OndioFM as well
09:29:09swiftkickLlorean: i know. Those dont have a flash memory slot tho do they?
09:29:27Lloreanswiftkick: If you knew, why did you ramble about cellphones? Please, keep the subject to Rockbox stuff.
09:29:44pixelmabtw. I can't remember that this was "fixed" for any release before where the problem already occured
09:30:18Lloreanpixelma: Doesn't the amount of available RAM differ somewhat depending on what options you've set? Even if we get it down enough, it might not work for some people who've set their files-in-folder limit too high

09:33:20pixelmatrue, but if it's already over a good amount (and I don't think amiconn has RAM eating options enabled). You can't take care of everything but I guess it should be down as much as the default settings need
09:34:19Lloreanpixelma: Yeah, voice should play immediately after the device is reset.
09:35:19LloreanIt's a bit unfortunate that it fails to "silence" rather than some fallback.
09:37:17swiftkickLlorean: first you misunderstood that I *am* asking about rockbox compatible players. Now you chastise me for two sentences of lighthearted banter about another device that just happens to also play mp3s and get firmware upgrades. You must be the channel's resident curmudgeon, in addition to needing a refresher in english comprehension.
09:38:18Lloreanswiftkick: I'm sorry, English comprehension? You admitted you knew every single supported player was out of production, then asked for one you could find new on shelves. This *strongly* suggests you're asking about something other than a supported player.

09:39:32swiftkickActually I was hoping someone could suggest a vendor that still sold an older one, or perhaps a different model that supported any decent memory card format
09:39:47swiftkickyou know sometimes sleepy vendors have a cache of an older model
09:39:52swiftkickuntil the community finds out
09:41:31LloreanSee, even now you've got that "or perhaps a different model" that suggests you're also looking for non-Rockbox players.
09:41:58LloreanMy point was simply that we strongly encourage you to keep off-topic chatter to the other channels on the network including the one specifically mentioned in the topic for offtopic stuff.
09:42:41AlexPswiftkick: Please don't attack people for asking you to follow the guidelines - the reason they are there is that lots of people read the logs and they don't want to have to wade through what would be a lot of noise if everyone just typed two lines of off-topic banter
09:42:45swiftkickim not sure how you could think that, given that this is the rockbox channel, but on the other hand, if someone did recommend a non-rockbox player that fit my needs, and thus ended this conversation about six of these pointless sentences earlier, would that have been a bad thing?
09:43:07AlexPPlease let's just all stop now, and stick on topic. Cheers :)

09:48:30Zagorswiftkick: well your choice is refurbished or ebay.
09:49:10KippersYeah. I just opened one that doesn't work and one that does in a hex editor to see if there are any obvious differences with tags etc. They both say " I 20070622", which looks kind of like the encoder version to me.

10:42:51amiconnLlorean: The Recorder v1 voice file is too big even with my settings - and I use limits which are *lower* than the defaults
10:43:21amiconnIt's true that the max possible voice size varies though - we need to settle for a sane limit
10:44:06amiconnThere are two ways to make the file smaller: (1) higher tts speed, or (2) more compression

10:59:17pixelmawe could also try differnet TTSs/voices. I noticed when making a voice file with espeak that I get bigger voice files too and I think it's related to the voice being a bit more "noisy" and hence doesn't compress as well, especially with MP3. If we are lucky we could find something better - though that will need quite some time of test and trial...

11:08:48ED_209is it possible the charging... circuit or whatever is damaged or is this a sign that the battery is poked?
11:09:55ED_209I'm really hoping it's the battery... it's been working fine up until a few weeks ago when it started doing this
11:11:21Zagorit could be the battery. the boot surge causing a voltage drop which then gradually recovers.
11:11:38ED_209I don't know how lithium polymer batteries work but if I charge it fully, it'll show a full charge immediately after I unplug it, but if I leave it turned off for a few hours and turn it on it'll be drastically lower, but then will count up from 8% to about 79%... and it loses charge when it's turned off too
11:12:12ED_209it's never done this before, the unit has been working fine until about 5 weeks ago when it was doing this thing
11:12:52Zagorthere's really no other way to find out than trying another battery
11:13:47Zagorafter two years the battery is likely quite aged/worn anyway. and the alternative is trying another player, which is not exactly a simple option either.
11:14:00ED_209it's not an option because I don't have another player
11:14:27ED_209and I had to grind out the back of the metal casing with a dremel to get this larger battery to fit without being crushed
11:15:16ED_209so you'd expect a cameron sino battery to fail after 2 years?
11:15:29 Join einhirn [0] (
11:16:25ED_209it still works... just not like it's supposed to. I just hope it's not the iriver which is faulty
11:17:09Zagorwell if it's not a problem then keep using it until it stops working
11:17:10ED_209I freakin pray it's the battery
11:17:50ED_209it is a problem, at startup the battery reads almost flat, then as I'm using it, the battery will slowly show a higher voltage up to a certain point
11:18:23ED_209are there any h300 users who may be in here later that might know a lot about this player?
11:18:34Zagorwell you have do decide if it's annoying enough to buy a new battery
11:18:48ED_209if a new battery will fix it I'll order one right now

14:56:53kkurbjunmost of it would be the same, the main part that you'll have to change is the memory initialization
14:57:28funmanthis part could be moved out of crt0.S if it's big
14:57:58kkurbjunif possible it would be good to break that out into a separate function/branch call
14:58:13Bob_CThere is also some stuff which seems specific to Gigabeat which I have also made conditional. But 60-70% is the same
14:59:27kkurbjunthe only other thing that would b especific is the lcd stuff and the button checks which is minor

15:09:22pyro_maniacoh realy
15:09:36pyro_maniachave you an idea about it?

15:11:21pyro_maniacok so we have to wait again :)

15:14:23gevaertsZagor: my theory is more that the dependencies that lead to lang.h are incomplete, not the ones after that
15:19:48gevaertsI mean, lang.h gets generated based on english.lang and features, right? What if features isn't complete yet when this is done?
15:19:51tomersI've noticed that when logging is enabled, some targets gets red and yellows (c100, h100)
15:20:06*gevaerts may be totally wrong here of course
15:20:13tomersShouldn't we add logf() support in the build system?
15:21:39Zagortomers: isn't it already?
15:21:58tomersZagor: Actually, I don't know...
15:22:17tomersBut still, c100 can't build with logf() support enabled

18:55:44domonokycasainho_: also the patch could need some cleanup. for example button-target still contains gigabeat string.

18:56:56domonokyand the lcd driver contains ifdefs for gigabeat and lyre_proto2 but it is a new file ? If they are very similar, we should reuse the gigabeat lcd file (maybe move it a bit up in the target tree)
18:56:59casainho_domonoky: ok, Bob is taking care of the patch, will take care of that lost string
18:57:42domonokyalso there is a new kernel-lyre_proto2.c cant we reuse the gigabeat one ?
18:58:45funmanif µSD access on Sansa AMS is really fixed by r22850, what else is needed for stable status ?
18:59:04saratogafunman: its still overclocked isn't it?
18:59:05funmanThere's no recording, occasional glitches in LCD display, and no manual
18:59:09HillshumThe manual?
18:59:12funmansaratoga: yeah
18:59:21Hillshumrecording's not needed
18:59:38saratogafunman: are the lcd glitches fixed with bertriks imrpvoements?

19:00:24saratogai think we should make the fuze stable whenever the uSD clock issue is fixed
19:00:41saratogatheres really no hurry anyway
19:00:47funmanwhat do you fear : breaking µSD cards ?
19:00:54Bob_CWe copied the gigabeat files, they are included to allow the bootloader to build. They have not been fully ported yet (or even looked at). The lcd has a lot of SPI stuff which I think is not relevant to mini2440
19:01:09saratogafunman: well running the sd cards out of spec seems like an unstable sort of thing
19:01:19saratogai don't think you'll break them but theres some risk of data corruption
19:01:24saratogaIMO a stable device shouldn't have that
19:01:34Bob_CIf sharing source is ok, that's fine, I just can't test on Gigabeat
19:01:39funmanrisk of data corruption can be measured with test_disk
19:02:20saratogafunman: yeah but its entirely dependent on the quality of the individual sd card NAND chips
19:02:47funmanwe have already some variety of µSD cards among interested testers
19:03:15funmanI remember you had measured the clock frequency when using the OF and it was in the specification
19:03:21saratogawell if it really doesn't seem to matter i'm fine with it but i'd still rather wait a while to be sure
19:03:26saratogayeah the OF clocked my card quite low

19:04:51funmanAlexP: the ones with µSD slot (fuzev1/e200v2)

19:05:10saratogaso i can see whats going on when it deadlocks for different people
19:05:18AlexPfunman: The e200 manual should be pretty easy, just different install instructions pretty much
19:05:22funmanc200v2 has a µSD slot also, but is affected by the playback bug of clip/m200v4
19:05:45AlexPI'll have a look at it

19:06:48saratoga(or plus)
19:06:55AlexPI'd love a clip+ port
19:06:55funmani didn't see clip+ yet
19:07:09AlexPThe addition of uSD is just groovy
19:07:21domonokyBob_C: yes, sharing code is recommended if the code is similar. And i can understand you just copied the files to get it running. but it should be cleaned-up before commiting.
19:08:02casainho_Bob_C: make empty stubs on that file!
19:08:20funmani still see glitches on fuze's lcd
19:08:32Bob_CSo it doesn't matter if I can't verify the Gigabeat ports - someone can do that?
19:08:56AlexPYes, ask for a tester here when ready
19:09:29funmanµSD seems stable so far here
19:09:31domonokyBob_C: i think we will find some testers with gigabeat to verify that you didnt broke anything without problems.
19:10:33domonokyBob_C: about code sharing, see for example firmware\target\arm\lcd-c200_c200v2 or other drivers there.
19:11:03Bob_COk, so they would test the patch locally then give a yay or neigh
19:11:05AlexPWhat's the Rockbox binary called for e200 ams?

19:16:00FlynDicefunman: saratoga: We can run the AMS Sansa SD cards at 49.6 MHz by lowering PCLK if you would accept that tradeoff....
19:16:35funmanFlynDice: what about cards which require 25MHz ?
19:17:35FlynDiceNope, the cards won't run without the bypass bit set right now, MCICLK must = PCLK
19:18:02funmani think 50MHz is only for high speed cards
19:18:17FlynDiceat least that's what I've found

19:28:24ED_209that's the problem I have, the battery starts up saying around 3.8v or 3.72v and has only a few % capacity remaining, then I have to use the iriver and the % remaining slowly creeps up while the iriver is running
19:28:26funmanHillshum: i think we must ask to CIA owners / or switch to git
19:28:50ED_209what's the OF and how would that help me determine the problem?
19:29:04HillshumOriginal Firmware
19:29:08ED_209oh, original firmware... I doubt it would tell me anything about the battery
19:29:16ED_209it just has like 4 bars
19:29:28ED_209that's all it tells me
19:30:21ED_209I mean, there are 4 bars of information and they're either all there, some gone or all gone
19:31:06HillshumDoes their presence (or lack thereof) correlate with what Rockbox says?
19:31:39ED_209no idea, but rockbox consistently does this, and it's only been happening recently
19:32:14ED_209telling me battery life remaining in quarterly segments is practically useless
19:32:28AlexPfunman: As the install is the same for the fuze and e200 v2 I'll write the manual install for both
19:33:25funmanAlexP: ok let me check if it's ok (will you put the patch on flyspray) ?
19:33:44domonokyED_209: you should be able to see a change from 8% to 79% also with the 4 bars from the OF. If it does the same, maybe your battery is just old, and needs replacement ?
19:33:49AlexPfunman: I'm just copying from the wiki, but I'll pastebin it first if you want
19:34:41ED_209I jsut unplugged it from charging, and switched to the OF and it said full bars, but I switched back to rockbox and during this time it's lost about 10% of remaining battery life

19:51:51ED_209after using it for a while it creeps up
19:52:42domonokyED_209: it may also just look like it, rockbox first measures the battery, when we need most power. so a voltage drop in this situation on old batterys is likely.
19:53:51domonokyand if the battery needs a long time to recover voltage from a heavy load (because its old), you might get exactly what you see.
19:54:31ED_209what do you mean by "from a heavy load"
19:56:46domonokyheavy load = drawing much power from the battery.
19:57:08ED_209ok I'll stop bugging you
19:57:27ED_209well, the battery seems to drop in voltage while the unit is off
19:58:06ED_209and you need to keep something running like the backlight or some high bitrate songs before the voltage will start creeping up again

22:47:21amiconnkugel: If voltage scaling causes problems with sd access, I'd guess the problem is that the voltage is too low for the sd card and/or interface. I think that just "boosting" the voltage during sd access should fix that

22:59:18kugel32 is too slow for dbop, and too slow for most codecs (which would mean more boosting)
22:59:58saratogakugel: ideally we should be boosting during playback, no boosting means wasted clock, and with voltage scaling, there is no downside to boosting
23:00:01kugelespecially with voltage scaling, less boosting gives better runtime over just lower clocks
23:00:16saratogaoh i see what you mean
23:00:26saratogaregardless, running at 62MHz wastes a lot of power
23:00:57saratogasome way should be found to reduce that, even if it involves a more complicated solution
23:01:19rasherAlexP: nice @ the e200v2 manual
23:01:31kugelI'm quite satisfied with 62MHz, and I rather doubt 31MHz has a noticeable/positive effect

23:03:51saratogakugel: Table 9 ARM 922T characteristics
23:03:54kugellet me put it this way, with 62MHz any plugin runs just fine (bubbles, pf, and more), compared to the e200v1 where running some plugins without boosting is no way fun
23:04:12bertrikmost ARMs have a low power wait-for-interrupt mode, so running at higher clocks means it's done faster and spend more time in the low power mode :)
23:04:35saratogadoes ARM9? it seems like a fairly primative chip
23:04:47TheSeveni think so, see the CP15 regs
23:04:55kugelI'd love to have a 3 tier boosting, we could possibly have that isolated in the target tree (boost to 62MHz during LCD updates for example, it's without delay anyway)
23:05:07saratogakugel: that seems sensible
23:05:18saratogahave the boost code check if the LCD is enabled
23:05:48saratogawould also be useful on PP too, but thats another issue
23:06:23kugelI see 0.25mW, but that's probabl a lot less than that with reduced voltage
23:06:35saratogapower scales with v^2
23:06:41kugel0.25 is for 1.2V
23:07:10TheSevensaratoga: MCR p15, 0, Rd, c7, c0, 4 works at least for the 940T
23:07:16saratogaso 1.1v is .21mW per MHz
23:07:34kugelalmost 1/5 less
23:08:04saratogaof course reducing the average clock from 62 to 40 is 1/3 less or so :)
23:08:13kugelit also says "with cach", who knows how much the cache influences that

23:13:41 Quit stoffel (Remote closed the connection)
23:13:54saratogakugel: the 922T is a bunch of source code thats compiled into a CPU by a vendor using details about their specific CMOS process
23:14:10saratogathe arm figures are just estimates for some typical process, they're not specific to the one AMS used
23:14:34saratogathe actual numbers can be adjusted by tweaking the process for performance or power consumption

23:17:44Roger__i have a 30gb ipod video with rockbox installed. what is a good way to sync my music to it?
23:17:48saratogaamiconn: because we only need ~24MHz for MP3 playback, but the GUI is unresponsive at that clock
23:18:02saratogaso it doesn't look good unless the screen is off anyway
23:18:25amiconnWell that surely depends on the actual target
23:18:50*amiconn would expect no visible slowness at 24MHz on the greyscale PP targets
23:18:55saratogakugel: I would do 31MHz if the screen is off, 62MHz if the screen is on, and then whatever is best for the full boost clock (250 I guess )
23:19:02bertrikI often wonder if we can come up with a way to detect exactly when boost is needed instead of just saying "always boost for X"
23:19:22saratogaamiconn: indeed even the e200 works nicely at 24, but the Ipod Video apparently does not
23:19:32Zagorthe problem is that we need to know slightly before it is needed...
23:19:40kugelsaratoga: 31MHz for playback is bad if it means more often boosting to 248 (and upping the voltage)

23:29:56saratogai don't think we ever really worked out the latency exactly but it seemed like an uncached access to the IRAM (really eDRAM) takes several clock cycles

23:45:38amiconnZagor: It seems %W% used to be a warning icon at some point, but I can't find that in the twiki wiki. See here: (note the "A word of caution" heading)
23:47:32Hillshumsaratoga: I might boot into Windows sometime and encode that ape file
23:49:12amiconnHmm, today it's %X%, and the MajorChanges page already used %X% back in 2007...
23:49:30Zagoramiconn: this page even says that also twiki used %ICON notation:
23:49:55amiconnYes, but shortcuts are better for often-used icons
23:50:17Zagoraha, it seems the SmiliesPlugin was used to create the shortcut
23:51:43 Part likemindead ("facepalm.jpg")
23:52:23amiconnSince it's just another shortcut for the same thing, it might be better to change all %W% to %X%
23:52:47amiconnIs there an easy way to search for them on the server
