00:26:20pixelmathey are, it's just not the "status bar"

00:28:59JdGordon|yes, but I got lazy with the buildzip scrip so just added them always
00:29:48moosis this a make job?
00:30:07moosif that's an easy job I could try...
00:31:10JdGordon|be my guest
00:31:12moosJdGordon: is that a makefile thing?
00:31:18JdGordon|no, worse....

00:32:47moosJdGordon: I noticed that the sbs handling seems to take time at boot (comparing to before this era)
00:33:19JdGordon|this is the 3rd report of that, but I call shinanigans or placebo
00:33:54JdGordon|unless the hardware setting setup code takes way too long to run, because the disk is not accessed any more than it used to be
00:34:01moosI even tried to disabled .sbs, and noticed that the status bar was printed at boot anyway
00:34:20JdGordon|hats a different story
00:34:55moosmaybe related? something fishy at start to handle status bar
00:34:57JdGordon|did you set statusbar to off?
00:35:21moosan it was here at boot anyway until the root menu
00:35:40JdGordon|gets displayed over the splash?
00:36:00moosto compare the boot difference, that's easy. Dircache time at boot, vs after usb
00:36:10moos3s lost here
00:36:21moosyup exactly
00:36:42JdGordon|ok, I just reprod that, the statusbar default must be "top" so that makes sense
00:37:20moosmaybe just an initialisation somwhere at boot (noob user guess here)
00:37:33moos+problem of course :)
00:37:36JdGordon|thats not a valid comparisson. I posted a patch somewhere to time the setting loading on boot which should be done to convince me there is an issue
00:38:11 Quit Strife89DS ("Batery is low.")
00:38:21moosmheh :)
00:38:49JdGordon|I'm also not too worried because I plan on splitting the theme settings completly out of the usual setting apply-ing code
00:39:00JdGordon|which should also fix the boot splash
00:39:08JdGordon|also, FS #10922 might fix that
00:39:15*moos is surprised that noone here noticed/reported this
00:39:48JdGordon|everyone has statusbar set to top anyway
00:39:55pixelmawhy the splitting out?
00:40:11*moos tought to boot time here of course
00:41:14moosJdGordon: don't have time right now to test more (wakes up for works in 5hours, and I'm not at bed yet:\=
00:41:36JdGordon|pixelma: maybe not a full split out, but being able to just apply the theme settings without every other setting would be useful
00:42:00moosJdGordon: I'll let you know If I find something or even better to report you that you fixed the issues when you'll done with the commits

00:44:48JdGordon|check the tick difference between the two settings_apply() calls in main()
00:45:04JdGordon|then see if anything changed from when the 2nd was added

00:54:35JdGordon|the only difference is you have to use viewports in the sbs
00:54:47JdGordon|and it needs a special viewport to say where the lists go
00:54:53JdGordon|otherwise its identical to wps
00:55:02moosok, nice to know, merci
00:55:51moosI did remenber you thought a while ago to have possibly a mini album art in. Is it already the case?

01:48:05flybackand host pc can't read the smart info etc
01:48:13flybackbecause it can't directely acces the disk
01:48:15flybackso that page is a FAIL
01:49:09flybackthey should at least add a smart table reader
01:49:51pixelmabecause some nice guy in IRC wants it?
01:49:55flybackI can understand the scandisk thing

01:51:43flybackdon't even display it in rockbox

01:52:23flybackplenty of programs out there that will read raw smart log data
01:52:41flybackI don't mind doing all that from a pc I just can't directely talk to the disk to run the command
01:52:50flybackagain this is just an idea :P
01:52:52flybacknot a demand

01:53:51flybackit's basically the equivalent of cat /proc/smart_table > smartinfo.txt
01:55:29flybackno text formatting, no parsing, just a raw dump to a small text file on the rockbox filesystem and I can then copy that file to a pc to process
01:55:33flybackto check disk health once in a while
01:56:59flybackmabye eventually if I get my #1 health issue resolved I can eventually write the code for this :P
02:01:45tmztaren't there extensions to usb storage to support this?
02:02:19flybacksome usb to ata controllers did support a pass thru command
02:02:29flybackbut here you are talking about a soc
02:02:32flybackso there's that whole layer
02:02:46flybackinsteresting idea though..............hmmmm :D
02:03:25flybackbrb I am in some serious pain :/
02:03:36tmztwell it's not a soc, it's software, unless you're talking about iPod
02:04:05tmztmost of the soft codec devices that support usb do so from software drivers in the rockbox kernel
02:04:39tmztwhat device has a non solidstate disk anyway that also has soft usb?

07:24:01UnhelpfulWebi can see how "hold doesn't affect some buttons" might be controversial, especially without a setting.
07:24:12JdGordoncool, rombox still fits after my skin changes which are just about ready
07:25:03andrewRBa setting was added, but apparently that made it fall under the "configurable keymaps" category which is also a resounding no ;) it's no big deal, I'm just trying to make it more convenient for the many D2 users
07:28:19pixelmais it possible to detect if a button is held while you flip the hold switch?
07:31:39andrewRBit should be, my hardware knowledge is very limited but the value in the adc should be different
07:32:02pixelmathought this could be a good compromise. You would have a "special keymap mode" - no setting and people who know about it can use it while usual hold is still available
07:32:26UnhelpfulWebpixelma: if the hold switch is a "regular" button i would think so - pre-condition BUTTON_X, post BUTTON_X|BUTTON_HOLD ?
07:32:49pixelmaenter the special mode by holding button X while sliding hold
07:33:17UnhelpfulWebclear it whenever exiting hold, and in special mode volume control works in hold?
07:33:41andrewRBthat is the best constructive suggestion I've heard regarding this, thanks pixelma. I'll look into it sometime
07:34:33pixelmaUnhelpfulWeb: yes, as far as I know that part already works this way
07:34:49*UnhelpfulWeb doesn't really think of settable "some keys function during hold" as being "configurable keymaps"
07:35:11 Part CGL ("Saliendo")
07:37:37*pixelma points tomers to in case he reads logs and didn't see it in the tracker
07:38:42amiconnUnhelpfulWeb: Quite a number of targets use a hw ata<->usb bridge: Archos Player, recorder v1/v2/fm, Iriver H1x0, H300, iAudio X5, M5, M3, Gigabeat F/X at least
07:39:09pixelma"Player Type" should actually be "every non-colour screen player" but that wasn't available
07:39:13amiconnI.e. all HDD-based SH1 targets, all coldfire targets, plus some more
07:39:49UnhelpfulWebamiconn: still, supporting usb SMART access on soft usb targets might not be completely crazy
07:40:17pixelmaneither was "Iaudio M5/M3" (something for B4gder or Zagor though)
07:40:31amiconnImo the idea to read SMART data in rockbox makes sense (unlike scandisk)
07:41:28amiconnAt least it could be dumped to file from the debug menu

07:45:32UnhelpfulWebpixelma: hold seems generally to be considered special and not a "normal" button that is mappable. this might be easier to mess with on soft-hold targets, but targets with a hardware hold switch seem to just define a button_hold() which is called before doing anything that would care if hold is on.
07:45:54JdGordonpixelma: that could work on every target with a software hold switch actually.... if a (special or any) key is pressed while hold is being enabled it can change modes
07:46:10JdGordonit will need a bit of work in the button drivers though because they respect the hold button

14:21:34AlexPsoap: And they were reported by others, I'm not being pro-active here (and indeed it isn't just me who has hidden these) :)
14:22:01AlexPyzflcyq: Why didn't you say that originally, and only when soap mentioned it?
14:23:00soapdoesn't matter - a reasonable response is now to spend more effort vetting yzflcyq's claims than those of others.

14:33:02AlexP"intended to add several features to the rockbox database that the rockbox firmware does not currently implement."
14:33:12AlexPSo I wonder what they do
14:33:23linuxstbGodEater: Downloading the source, I see it's written in python, rather than using the Rockbox C code.
14:33:29pixelmaregarding the +1MB text files - there is probably a difference in whether you open it in the text viewer or the editor
14:34:12yzflcyqI personally think C is better than python.
14:34:22yzflcyqMuch efficently.
14:34:34GodEaterAlexP: I wondered at that too
14:34:39TorneAlexP: i would guess they write values into the various fields which are different to what we infer from the metadata
14:34:40GodEaterit must work magic

14:36:15GodEaterit doesn't seem like such a silly thing to want to do
14:36:23Torneyeah. the db is just not flexible enough
14:37:09yzflcyqA stupid question from me.
14:37:44yzflcyqIs rockbox gonna add Chinese support?
14:37:54AlexPIt does, doesn't it?
14:38:06AlexPIf you select a suitable font and code page
14:38:20AlexPI don't know how complete the translation is though
14:38:32yzflcyqThe point I ask is that a Chinese inputer.
14:38:37*GodEater doesn't think this is a particularly stupid question either
14:38:51TorneThat would be difficult
14:38:56AlexPah right
14:38:58windpixelma:open it in the text viewer,but then 747 become a balck screen.
14:39:02GodEateryes, a chinese text editor would be tough
14:39:17AlexPCould you do it to an extent with a customised virtual keyboard?
14:39:22yzflcyqAh,bad tranlate for chinese.
14:39:23Torneyzflcyq: how does chinese text input work on PCs? Is it similar to Japanese IMEs? (type in kana, translates to kanji for you)?
14:39:44yzflcyqAlmost the same.
14:40:22 Quit Topy44 (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
14:40:23Torneyou can make a keyboard which has the syllables, and type in those (i forget what they are called for chinese)
14:40:43Tornebut doing the conversion to proper characters would be very difficult, we have nothing like the IME facility
14:40:51yzflcyqInput 'wo',translates to '我' and other same-sound characters.
14:41:46AlexPyzflcyq: Translation updates from native speakers are always very welcome
14:42:12yzflcyqYeah.I do want to help you translate it.
14:42:50Torneyzflcyq: are we talking about something that needs a few dozen or a few thousand charcaters, though? I don't know the proper terms for chinese but it would not be difficult to have a rockbox keyboard that let you type in katakana for Japanese, we just couldn't do the step where it translates a string of katakana into a kanji
14:42:55yzflcyqBut,how to?
14:43:18funmanyzflcyq: download the translation file and complete/correct it
14:43:30AlexPUnfortunaltely rasher's translation tool is currently broken
14:43:46AlexPrasher: That is a problem with the host, yes?
14:43:59yzflcyqThen how to upload/commit a translatetion?
14:44:00AlexPIf so, would it be possible to get it running on the Rockbox server?
14:44:04rasherAlexP: Yeah, maybe I should look into having scorche host it

14:44:32yzflcyqI've never known the translate tool.

14:55:56yzflcyqIt hard to build a translate Environment under Ubuntu.

14:59:11Torneperhaps the instructions need to be improved

15:00:50rasherYou don't need to setup anything to be able to translate, actually.
15:01:04rasherOnly if you want to build Rockbox afterwards to test the translation
15:01:10Tornewind: what do you mean, gamepad?
15:01:24yzflcyqSo I decided to translate it under Windows.
15:01:27windHold is included
15:01:41Torneyou can change the button mappings in rockboy

15:06:52Tornepixelma: probably - the screen is more than large enough
15:07:12Torneyou could display the buttons on the touchscreen below the screen in a similar layout to the actual gameboy :)
15:07:43yzflcyqSet some Virtual buttons on both sides of the screen?
15:08:42pixelmayes. But it will be some work on the plugins to allow this control method (I guess, I'm not a coder)
15:08:49windI have a picture
15:09:00windHow to upload
15:09:20yzflcyqpixelma:So am I.
15:10:20Tornepixelma: to a limited extent you can already use the touchscreen, it's in grid mode
15:10:28Torneso you can treat the touchscreen as 9 more buttons
15:11:01yzflcyqGot it.But it's diffcult to use.
15:11:30TorneYes, quite possibly :)

15:30:12Tornesomeday when i have infinite time i will experiment with elf2flt and friends

15:34:55Tornenot that i know what to change it to
15:35:33Zagorwhen you run a plugin it simply overwrites the transition code, and when you exit the plugin you reload the transition
15:35:51Torneyou could do that
15:35:56Tornebut it seems a bit of a fiddle :)

15:37:08Tornewell ok it's not absurd.

15:37:45Zagorgevaerts: bah, who wants a playlist viewer instead of eye candy? ;-)
15:37:59windI hane another question.Who can explain to me the difference between USB modes?
15:38:22Tornewind: they control what keypresses the player generates on the host PC using the HID interface
15:38:36Torneit has no effect on using it as a mass storage device (or on charging)
15:38:56Tornemultimedia mode means when you press play/stop/etc on the player it generates the keycodes for play/stop/etc as used by multimedia keyboards
15:39:05Tornethe othe rmodes make the player simulate a mouse, or a presentation remote, or various others
15:39:23gevaertsZagor: the point is that with proper PIC plugins, we can have *more* eyecandy!
15:40:42rasherTorne: "Multimedia key mode"?
15:41:07Tornegevaerts: well, relocatable plugins. actual PIC probably sucks beyond redemption for our purposes as i discovered before ;)

16:42:30mr45hey guys do u know if the developers are going to do rockbox on the sansa fuze v2?
16:42:43Strife89I was told that the GoGear needs a Cabbie port AND image conversions for the plugins, but that strikes me as odd.
16:43:06Strife89Since the description of Unstable says that Rockbox is "incomplete" on those targets.
16:43:43jsiddallmr45: latest info for Sansa ports are here:
16:45:20mr45yeah been looking at it now, all 92 pages heh
16:46:57mr45cheers tho :)
16:47:17linuxstbjsiddall: But why do you want Rockbox to start when the USB cable is attached? I didn't think Rockbox had USB support on the AMS Sansas yet?
16:47:47jsiddallIt does support USB for charging. I want to use the Clip in car mode where no PC is attached.
16:48:08jsiddallOF with USB attached essentially breaks car mode
16:48:31linuxstbSo it doesn't distiguish between a USB charger and a computer?
16:48:32FlynDicejsiddall: be very careful. You are not modifying the bootloader you are modifying dualboot.s. This is the one thing that has a high chance of bricking your player if you screw it up. And you just said yhat you don't know C or asm...
16:48:48Tornelinuxstb: no, the GPIO pin it looks at doesn't know the difference
16:49:03Torneit looks like the pin is just "is anything plugge dinto the usb port"
16:49:18jsiddallYeah, if it could detect whether a PC or charger was connected that would be sweet
16:49:57Tornewell when we support USB it can do that, probably...
16:50:10jsiddallFlynDice: And yes, I know I in dangerous territory here. Thus asking about my patch before using it.
16:50:29jsiddall...but by the time USB is supported there may be no need for the OF at all!
16:50:58Tornewe generally support dual booting anyway, though
16:51:20jsiddallFlynDice: Could you check and let me know if you see anything scary?
16:51:22Torneif it's possible, we try and support it even if there's no actual *need* to use the OF - some people still use the OF for somethings.
16:51:54jsiddallYeah, no harm in allowing the OF I guess. The clip still doesn't support recording so I guess there is still at least one reason to keep the OF.
16:53:10FlynDicejsiddall: You don't want me checking, I'd suggest linuxstb or funman.....
16:53:55Tornejsiddall: your patch is right, as far as it's possible to tell
16:54:08jsiddallOK, well one endorsement is good enough for me to try it. Thanks!
16:54:10Tornethat block of instructions is isolated
16:54:20Tornenone of the subsequent code depends on the values of r0/r1 that it sets
16:54:23jsiddallYeah, looked pretty innocent.
16:54:29Torneand nothing subsequently uses GPIOA either
16:54:46Torneso even if it doesn't work somehow you *should* still be able to boot the OF by holding the button
16:54:48gevaertsjsiddall: I suspect that you'll also need some modifications to the main build to not have it reboot later on. Those aren't dangerous though, so you can just try and see

21:58:56amiconnYeah. Seems on PP5020 the iram is a bit slower than the cache?!

21:59:34amiconnI don't think sampling error is that large
22:00:41Unhelpfuli doubt it is either. did i see that you were thinking about fusing some of the APE filter operations? presumably to save one set of load/store?
22:01:43amiconnIt will save an operand load
22:01:58amiconn(per sample*filter_order)
22:02:42amiconnIf the sample is non-zero, that is (but zero samples are rare...)
22:03:18JdGordon|hmm.. whats the max framerate the colour targets can do?
22:03:26 Quit evilnick_B ("Page closed")
22:03:31amiconnDepends very much on the target
22:04:00JdGordon|in general, <100FPS? <200?
22:04:08JdGordon|colour targets I only care about
22:05:45JdGordon|the formatting looks messed up :(

22:26:59pixelmait's not, it just lloks messy due to the alternatimg colours and the diiferent grouping of rows (or rowspan)

22:41:01amiconnThere's nothing wrong with the formatting...
22:41:25linuxstbThe second header row was wrong. Or at least it was for me...

22:41:44pixelmar49 didn't have those rowspan things - I guess though that the page still looked nicely with twiki. The header looks wrong yeah

22:42:42amiconnHmm, it's a bug in foswiki

22:43:07amiconnThe header also used rowspan, and this did work in twiki

23:35:38scorcheTorne: if you didnt get the pictures from yzwhatever, chinese input in windows at least is usually done by a program (this is the most common program at least) that when started, acts like another bar that sits above the taskbar and users type pinyin into whereever they want it to appear. Then, when they have finished typing the romanised phonetics, they are presented with multiple options with numbers attached to chinese characters which
23:35:49scorcheand it replaces the text with the character

23:38:06rasherscorche: excellent - can you set up a vhost like "" and host it inside the themes account? I'll fake the dns locally for now and prod zagor once I've got it going
23:38:29rasherOr create a new account, but having it inside themes means more people can fix it when it goes wrong
