#rockbox log for 2010-02-04

00:00:19bluebroth3rSaliver: why change the battery based on a "feeling"? If it's that important measure it.
00:00:25DhraakellianCongrats on the release!
00:00:28*Dhraakellian scurries off
00:00:55Saliverbut the feeling hurts...
00:01:02bluebroth3rand btw, I'm using a mini2g daily (but with CF mod too) and battery is ok −− though my battery is already quite old (3years or so with lots of use)
00:01:04 Quit jgarvey (Quit: Leaving)
00:01:11linuxstbHontoniLinux: I've no experience of either e200, but I would assume it wouldn't have been promoted to "stable" status if it was in any way unstable...
00:01:19bluebroth3rbah. This is about facts, not feelings.
00:01:25linuxstb(replace the it with e200v2)
00:01:30SaliverI charged my ipod yesterday in the evening and listened to music today for about 2 hours
00:01:44Saliverrockbox is telling me that only 78% left
00:01:46bluebroth3rso what?
00:02:04bluebroth3rso _that_ is hard facts. ROFL.
00:02:41Saliverwell iam kind of desperate because my big ipod video is working for real 20 hours
00:02:46gevaertsSaliver: use it until it runs down. The percentage on its own doesn't necessarily mean much
00:03:06HontoniLinuxlinuxstb: I see, thanks. Gonna be difficult to tell before buying it online if it's v1 or not.
00:03:09Saliverokay, maybe you're right
00:03:35Salivershould i change the capacity of the battery in rockbox?
00:03:47Saliveris it necessarily?
00:04:33gevaertsthat's only used for the runtime estimate
00:05:15gevaertsHave a look at
00:05:41gevaerts8 hours seems fairly normal for a 2nd gen mini, unless it has a compactflash card
00:06:33SaliverI see your point
00:06:49Saliverit has an CF card
00:06:59Salivera CF card
00:10:10Salivergevaerts, what does that mean for me now?
00:10:24gevaertshow should I know? I'm not a battery specialist
00:11:16Saliveri see
00:11:39Saliverbut thank you guys for the help
00:11:47 Join piotrekm [0] (
00:11:53Saliverlast question:
00:12:24Saliverisn't it maybe normal that another firmware on a music player reduce the batterylife of it?
00:12:51*gevaerts doesn't understand that question
00:13:14*kugel spots a problem with pla rework
00:14:07Saliveri mean another firmware like the rockbox which runs with a bootloader
00:14:42Saliverwould automatically decrease the batterylife because it constrantly needs to read from the hard drive?
00:15:42kugelif at all, it's the other way around
00:16:02gevaertswhy do you think the bootloader "constantly needs to read from the hard drive"?
00:16:16gevaertsThe bootloader only runs for a second or so at most...
00:16:27kugelrockbox runs from ram only, so it only touches the hard drive when playing music (or browsing)
00:17:05Saliverallright i got it
00:17:12*kugel needs to invent PLA_*_REL
00:17:26Saliverwell i didnt express myself that good ; /
00:17:34Saliverbut thank you for your help guys
00:18:00Jdgordon_kugel: really?
00:18:11*linuxstb thinks we should demote the e200r to "unstable", due to the installation procedure (lack of rbutil support)
00:18:47*kugel disagrees and thinks rbutil support shouldn't block ultimatively
00:19:16kugelafterall, this is whether rockbox runs fine. rbutil is just for installation convinience
00:19:36linuxstbThat's not what the front page of the website says. Or the release notes
00:20:06kugelwell, e200r is supported by rbutil
00:20:12kugeljust not the first time installation
00:20:51linuxstbNot being able to install Rockbox the first time is hardly "supported".
00:21:40kugelyou can do anything else with it, update rockbox, install voices or themes
00:22:40 Quit Saliver (Quit: CGI:IRC)
00:23:08kugelI don't think bootloader installation is mandatory for "supported", it has a lot of other features to offer
00:24:57kugelJdgordon_: there's PLA_SELECT, and PLA_SELECT_REPEAT. to not render _REPEAT useless SELECT needs |BUTTON_REL
00:25:03kugelwhich is annoying in bubbles for example

00:29:54Saliverhey it's me again. I have just one last question
00:30:10Saliverand than i will leave forever
00:31:08Salivereverytime I shutdown my rockbox on ipod mini I get a 'low-battery-icon' for a few seconds
00:31:33linuxstbSaliver: That's a feature...
00:32:54Salivercommon, thats not true ;-)

00:33:52Saliverwhat do you mean by feature?
00:34:15Saliverdoes the icon try to tell me something about my battery?
00:34:17kugelis that really a feature?
00:34:46AlexPIt is a side effect of a feature
00:35:05AlexPIt is the side effect of avoiding the having to reset the ipod to get it to boot from time to time
00:35:26linuxstbI mean it's known behaviour - torne's (I think) recent commit to change how Rockbox powers off uses the Apple bootloader to power-off, and that displays that icon.
00:35:40*linuxstb isn't a fan of that commit...
00:35:52Saliverah i see. so its normal?

00:43:56stripwaxFWIW I've been utterly unable to reproduce *reliably* but it's happened two times since I last reported it.

00:46:06linuxstbstripwax: I can't think why the Rockbox bootloader version would affect anything - I don't think we've updated it for years...
00:49:12stripwaxamiconn - do I remember correctly that you recently (or not so recently) reordered the arguments for SMULL/SMLAL in mdct_arm.S ? or was that somebody else? I'm wondering (if I 'mreading it correctly) why the twiddle factors are in the fourth place, rather than third. Won't most of the twiddle factors need most of the full range to represent them?
00:49:40stripwaxlinuxstb - wasn't sure. Ok, so probably not that then. So strange
00:50:07*stripwax is looking at the timings in
00:52:11stripwaxactually I wonder what the distribution of bitrange of inputs looks like vs distribution of bitrange of twiddles.
00:55:03stripwaxAye caramba. So multiplying by a negative value always takes 16 cycles on pp? (or am I reading that wrong, or is it actually garbag)

01:39:46stripwaxMm, this doc seems (naturally) more reliable - - the timings suggest four cycle SMULL on arm7tdmi (that's equivalent to pp502x.. right?)
01:41:04stripwaxeither way, way over half the twiddle factors will end up in 3 or 4 cycles - there'd be very few (imo but not checked) that have top 8 bits (or more) clear and/or top 8 bits (or more) all set to 1
01:42:12stripwaxSo if I make the vague and totally unsubstantiated assumption that the mdct inputs are uniformly distributed between 0x00000000 and 0xffffffff, then you'd be better off putting the twiddle factor as first arg and the mdct input as second arg, to SMULL/etc instructions.
01:42:28stripwaxanyway. will see if that makes much/any difference to mdctexp...

01:55:16saratogastripwax: when I tested wma ages ago, i found that the data to be transformed was much likely to have zeros then the mdct coefficients
01:56:09stripwaxsaratoga - makes perfect sense to me - so data should be in the last operand of smull rather than penultimate (twiddle should be in penultimate)
01:56:42saratogathat makes sense, maybe flip it around and see if it helps?
01:56:49saratogaor don't if we're about to remove the old mdct lib anyway

01:57:58saratogastripwax: also, about that site, I believe those clocks are the latency, while the actual pipeline delay is no more then 3 for a normal mul, 4 for a long mul or mul accumulate, and 5 for a long mul accumulate
01:58:30komputesAnyone feel like walking me through installing rb 3.5 on an iPod nano 1G?
01:58:37saratogayes, read manual
01:59:06stripwaxYou can even use the Rockbox Utility
01:59:14saratogasince a 32x8 mul can be done completely pipelined (no stall), while theres 1 cycle stall for each extra 8 bits input, then 1 cycle stall to store the top 32 bits (if applicable) and 1 stall to do the accumulate
02:00:04saratogasince the multiplier is 8 bits wide, the reg write back is 32 bits, and the accumulate cannot be fused into the last mul stage
02:00:20stripwaxsaratoga - right. would you agree with my suggestion then though, or disagree? (I couldn't tell :-)
02:00:21saratogabecause arm*tdmi sucks
02:00:45saratogai think the input data should be whichever slot can early terminate (i forget)
02:00:50saratoganot the twiddles
02:00:57stripwaxyep. cool!
02:01:16stripwaxso I'll test now whether that change impacts performance now
02:01:23*stripwax now now now
02:05:16stripwaxsaratoga - barely makes a difference as far as I can tell. Bit surprised by that actually.
02:05:50saratogait probably matters more the lower the bitrate, since they'll be more zeros
02:06:34stripwax96kbps vorbis is 28.54MHz on ipod 5g
02:06:48stripwax(v. good point though!!)
02:07:45Strife89The latest patch for FS #8802 instructs me to define HAVE_USE_CHARGING_ENABLE, but I'm not sure where to do so.

02:08:05stripwaxOh, hm, maybe that is faster than what I had before. Hard to tell, I probably didn't save those results anywhere. It's pretty much all dead on compared to - which is before that bitreverse optimisation (which I already ported into mdctexp)

02:08:53saratogaStrife89: usually in the target's config file, but you can also do it in makefiles and other places
02:09:14stripwaxSo vorbis+mdctexp is 'sortof no worse' than Tremor circa April last year..
02:09:18Strife89saratoga: Would I add a line in the makefile?

09:21:50Unhelpfulamiconn: it's only dynamic at compile time. making it dynamic at runtime would slow it down or complicate it substantially (you'd need to do X divisions to fill the table, you'd need to either modify the code of the divider or have it load the reciprocal table size)

11:38:40Tornelinuxstb: i'm not thrilled by fs#10107 either but it seems better than *not* having it. I still hold out hope that we can work out a real solution.
11:41:45linuxstbTorne: I'm not sure I agree - I think I would prefer having to do a hard reset occasionally than getting a low-battery flash each time I shut down. It also seems the wrong approach on principle to use Apple code to shut down, instead of trying to do it ourselves - the bug wasn't _that_ important to fix.
11:42:56Torneoccasionally, maybe
11:43:08Tornebut for some people (including me) it was a third or even a half of the time
11:43:32Torneuntil i started using that method i couldn't turn my player on more than two or three times in a row without resetting it.
11:43:48 Quit stoffel (Remote host closed the connection)
11:44:02GodEaterlinuxstb: I can vouch for this, I saw torne's ipod.
11:44:07linuxstbWas that target-specific? I can't recall it being a big problem for me (on my ipod Color or 30GB 5g)
11:44:13TorneIt might've been
11:44:18Tornethat's why i put up that poll
11:44:19GodEatervery very odd though, because I only ever got the issue like three times in two years.
11:44:29Tornebut too few people responded to the poll for any model other than the Video to really be sure
11:44:35Torneprobably because a lot more people have a Video :)
11:44:37GodEaterTorne: wasn't yours the 80GB ipod video?
11:44:37linuxstbBut the commit was for all ipods?
11:44:44TorneGodEater: yes
11:44:49GodEaterso same model as mine then
11:44:55GodEaterand I barely ever got the problem
11:45:03Tornelinuxstb: all with the same PCF, yes
11:45:23Tornebecause the method does *work* on all of them, and none of the people who tested the patch *ever* had the problem afterward
11:45:26linuxstbMaybe it's also related to OF version.
11:45:34Tornealso possible
11:45:38GodEaterMy ipod is 1.2.3
11:45:42Tornemy todo list has "disassemble the bootloader" on it
11:45:58TorneGodEater: i'll check, i have it here
11:46:21GodEaterI think 1.3 is the last version apple shipped for the video
11:46:35linuxstbYes, 1.3 sounds familiar.
11:46:38Tornelinuxstb: anyway, i judged the cosmetic effect as pretty minor
11:46:40Tornemaybe it's not
11:46:53TorneYes, i have 1.3
11:46:59Torneso perhaps it is that
11:47:10Tornebut the poll showed it definately does occur on most if not all models
11:47:11GodEaterTorne: try downgrading?
11:47:12linuxstbTorne: To be honest, I haven't updated Rockbox on my ipod for a long time, so haven't seen the cosmetic effect. It just _sounds_ undesirable (and potentially confusing to users)
11:47:26Torneso unless they all had the bug introduced/fixed in some firmware version..
11:47:33Tornelinuxstb: i added a note to the manual :)
11:47:35GodEateralso, the cosmetic effect doesn't bother me really, I barely ever look at the ipod when it's shutting down.

11:48:16GodEaterno, it's miniscule
11:48:18Tornejust a greyscale bitmap in the center of the screen
11:48:30Tornethough it does linger a bit because the LCD gets powered off without being cleared

13:35:31Torneyes, it can't permanently damage the ipod
13:35:36Torneand playback should be reliable.
13:35:58Torneas long as you have a copy of your music somewhere else it's fine
13:36:05bongI'm a bit concerned because I'll have to buy a used nano for this, I don't have one
13:36:09Torneyou might want to back up the .rockbox folder as well occcasionally though

13:36:20Torne(saves you configuring it again)
13:36:42bongI suppose that if it doesn't work perfectly now, it will be better in a few months
13:37:00TornePeople are investigating possible causes for the flash issues
13:37:06bongsounds great
13:37:08AlexPIf I were buying a player to run Rockbox it wouldn't be the nano 2nd gen
13:37:19Torneit only seems to affect some players so it may depend on which type of flash that specific nano has
13:37:29bongwhich player would be a better buy then?
13:37:31S_a_i_n_tthere's a fairly easy fix for the dircache/"safely remove hardware" data corruption

13:37:51bongyeah I know the 1gen works great

13:38:10AlexPiPod nano that is
13:38:15S_a_i_n_tist gen nano port rocks...and looks better IMO
13:38:24AlexPlooks better?
13:38:28*dionoea doesn't like the e200's buzzing sounds when buffering data
13:38:29S_a_i_n_ttorne: no, but one of the most common IIRC
13:38:37rasherTorne: That often turns out to be a red herring though, and simply a case of people doing different things (not that it *couldn't* be that of course)
13:38:42AlexPdionoea: Ah right, I don't hear that so always forget
13:38:42Tornethe flash based ipods are not very good compared to many of the other flash players
13:38:58bongthe thing with buying a nano 2g is that it's relatively easy to get hold of used
13:39:09bongI can't find a sansa player anywhere near me
13:39:25S_a_i_n_tAlexP: what I meant was, aesthetically, I prefer the 1st gen nano over the 2nd
13:39:30AlexPAh, OK
13:39:41dionoeaAlexP: how can you not hear it? :) (other than that I agree that the the e200 is a great dap)
13:40:09AlexPdionoea: Well, I don't use the e200 much (or at all really), but whenever I do I can't hear the buzzing
13:40:23*B4gder never heard the buzzing either
13:40:27S_a_i_n_t2nd gen nano port is starting to become noticably faster than the 1st gen port now...which is good
13:41:10dionoeaI use music on the miscrosd card. Maybe it doesn't happen with internal memory. I'll check that right now.
13:43:06bongalright, I think I'll invest in a nano 2g, it doesn't seem like anything too major is likely to happen

14:14:01TorneYou don't need to build ipodpatcher
14:14:19 Join Casainho [0] (
14:14:36Torneipodpatcher only uses the builtin bootloader if you run it with no arguments
14:14:41Tornebuild the bootloader yourself
14:14:48Torneand follow the instructoins, with any binary of ipodpatcher.
14:15:09Tornei really should release a new ipod bootloader :)
14:15:35dionoeaThe e200 buffering interference indeed doesn't happen when loading from internal memory. I guess that the fact that the microsd slot is just under the headphone jack explains it a bit
14:15:36Torneincidentally you *don't* need to build rockbox yourself for that method any more
14:15:38koniiiikOh. So I can use even an ipodpatcher without a builtin bootloader and tell it to use the one I just built?
14:15:45S_a_i_n_thow outdated is the release bootloader compared to svn?
14:15:54TorneAll version of rockbox since 3.4 include the required code in the main build
14:15:59S_a_i_n_tkoniiiik: yes
14:16:10koniiiikWell, I like to be up to date. (-: (-:

14:16:21S_a_i_n_tyou can even load original firmware files with it, surpassing the need for iTunes.
14:16:22Tornekoniiiik: yes, but you can just use a current build for that

14:16:45Torneit's only the bootloader which isn't compiled for you :)
14:16:52Tornewhich is why i should release a new one really
14:17:05Tornebut it's up to you, anyway, you cna use your own compiled build :)
14:17:25Tornei should update the wiki page
14:18:24koniiiikAll right, now... How do I use the new bootloader? ipodpatcher -a bootloader-ipodnano1g.ipod?
14:18:34S_a_i_n_tkoniiiik: iy's important to note that some "advanced ipodpatcher istall options" *require* you to use a user-built bootloader
14:18:41S_a_i_n_toption 3 IIRC
14:18:51TorneS_a_i_n_t: that's what he's doing.
14:19:14Tornekoniiiik: yes, just do a bootloader build by selecting bootloader in configure, and it will produce bootloader-yourmodel.ipod
14:19:22Tornethen follow the instructions.
14:19:39Torneyou can use any rockbox.ipod which is less than six months or so old.
14:19:41koniiiikTorne: Already done. (-;
14:20:36Tornei'm going to update the wiki to explain better.
14:22:36TorneThere we go :)
14:22:52Tornewhen i wrote the instructions the code wasn't in the release, so it was important to specify
14:23:10Tornebut the code has been in svn for a long time and in 3.3, 3.4 and 3.5 so it doesn't matter what version peopl euse now really
14:23:15Torneas long as they build the bootloader from svn
14:23:50koniiiikOkay, thanks.

14:49:00webguest12hey linuxstp - yes i got the 4th grayscale version
14:49:28linuxstbWhat's your question?
14:50:10webguest12i installed rockbox on it, no problem at all - but it dont charge at my docking station
14:50:26webguest12is there any option to activate???
14:55:15linuxstbNo. That's a known issue with Rockbox on the ipod (or maybe just some ipods, including your's) - Rockbox either doesn't charge, or will charge very slowly. You will need to reboot into the Apple firmware (or emergency disk mode - hold SELECT+PLAY when booting) to charge.
14:57:12webguest12:( ok thanks
14:58:51gevaertswebguest12: if you use a release, it should automatically reboot to emergency disk mode when you plug it in
14:59:28gevaertslinuxstb: any opinions on committing that charging patch soon? I know it's not correct from a USB point of view, but are there other problems?
15:01:14linuxstbgevaerts: I don't know anything about it...
15:01:21gevaertsok :)
15:01:22Tornegevaerts: I was going to write up a proposal for how to fix that "properly"
15:01:28TorneS_a_i_n_t: yes, that could be added
15:01:48Tornegevaerts: but in brief, i think we should change the USB charging setting to a tristate
15:02:13gevaertsah, sounds like a good solution
15:02:13Torneoff would do everything the target supports to not charge: either reduce to 100mA or turn it off entirely if possible
15:02:22Torneon would try and follow the usb spec (including the charging spec)
15:02:29Torneand force would try and suck up power regardless
15:02:39Torneexactly what that would mean for various targets would differ
15:02:52Tornebut it seems much more useful than a boolean
15:03:03Torneif we did that we could commit fs#8802 now, as the "force" optoin for ipods
15:03:15Torneand then work on proper usb charging support later (so "on" would behave the same as "off" for now)
15:03:41Torneor we could maybe jus thave "off/force" on ipod?
15:03:43Tornei dunno
15:03:47Tornebut you get the genreal idea/
15:04:02gevaertsI think that would be better for now, but yes, that's a detail
15:04:18Tornedoes the tristate sound like a good goal, at least?
15:04:27TorneThe code to obey usb charging in general would work on any target
15:04:32Torneonce someone writes it :)
15:04:53Torneyou'd just need the target-specific way of adjusting the charge controller behaviour (if it's a hw charger) or doing the right thing in the charging thread (if it's sw)
15:05:05Torneand maybe som etarget specific way of detecting D+/D- being shorted
15:05:14Tornewhich i'm pretty sure ipodvideo can do
15:05:22Torneas well as the apple charger detection?
15:05:28gevaertsI like the idea, yes
15:05:35Tornemost targets won't support that, but they can still do the right thing wrt. USB hosts
15:05:51 Quit webguest12 (Quit: CGI:IRC)
15:06:03gevaertsI assume "force" would mean 500mA (if we can limit the thing), while proper charger detection could go higher
15:06:18Tornethat might have to depend on the target
15:06:31Torneafaik the ipods can't go above 500 anyway
15:06:42Torneat least hte PP ones don't
15:06:52Tornethe nano4g might be able to, since i'm pretty sure the touch can
15:07:17TorneSo, hm
15:07:22TorneI should write a patch for the setting
15:07:27Torneand see what people think, probably
15:07:55gevaertswell yes, this is again something that will depend on actual hardware features
15:09:08Torneanyway, i think it's important to get the setting/ui right
15:09:19Tornebecause a lot of the issues we've discussed before could be solved that way
15:10:02TorneI think those three choices is what users are likely to want: "don't drain my laptop battery", "charge when it's safe", "charger detection doesn't work for me, please charge anyway" :)
15:10:09gevaertsI agree. Once that's done, the rest can be cleaned up in small bits
15:10:35Tornewhat should we do about targets that can't meaningfully support one of those at all? (obviously targets where we have no choice don't need a setting)
15:10:54gevaertsI'd leave out the option then
15:11:05TorneHm. That could be fun to ifdef. :)
15:11:25*gevaerts is sure that Torne can handle it :)
15:11:29Tornei shall write a proposed UI/setting patch, then, and solicit feedback
15:11:43Torneand while i'm at it see if anyone knows what the capabilities of our platforms are
15:11:56Torneatm only nano2g, h300 and gigabeat s have any kind of charging "control" that I know of
15:12:08Tornethe others just do whatever
15:12:18Torneeither because the hardware doesn't give us any choice or because nobody knows how or has bothere d;)

19:11:01domonokyit should use sansapatcher, so it juts wont find anything.
19:11:15linuxstbBut could a user then override it and say it's an e200?
19:11:46domonokyif the user did the e200r to e200 conversion manually, it should work just like a normal e200.

19:45:58domonokythis is to protect to accidently install wrong builds, if you update several different devices.

19:47:56domonokybut implementing a "previous name" isnt worth the effort.. it only applys to some targets and only for one update.
19:48:03GodEaterthis time...
19:48:17GodEaterI shall remind you you said that next time ;)
19:48:23domonokybut the error report is equally bad :-)
19:48:24*GodEater scribbles this down somewhere to remind himself

20:11:36domonokylinuxstb: not enough info. which target, which OS and i want a system trace, as i just posted :-)
20:12:28domonokysaying "it doesnt work" as in his first post, is always a bad error report :-)
20:13:47linuxstbdomonoky: Your reply still doesn't clarify the issue though. i.e. that the "mismatch" is between the target name rbutil is currently using, and the target name in the installed rockbox-info.txt. (what's been discussed here, but not in that thread)

21:06:06bluebrotherdomonoky: I've done a "show disabled" checkbox. Thoughts?
21:09:49domonokylooks fine. Maybe change the wording in the user text a bit.
21:10:36domonoky"Disabled targets are not recommended for end users"
21:10:53domonokyor ".. only for Developers"
21:11:07bertrikjobec, thanks for re-testing
21:12:31linuxstbWhat are "disabled targets" ?
21:14:02bluebrotherlinuxstb: some targets are marked as disabled in rbutil.ini, which makes them disappear from the configuration. This is used for targets that have some kind of support in rbutil which is in a state that isn't considered sufficient for end users
21:14:47bluebrotherone example is the D2: as it requires to handle two drives (which rbutil doesn't handle yet) its installation is ... well, nothing you can figure without additional info
21:15:18linuxstb"Experimental targets" ?

22:01:34jobecbertrik: i'm not sure it's only the battery since OF runs almost 3x the time. and 15h with that small unit is quite nice, in my opinion
22:03:07bertrikjobec, I hope it's a bug in rockbox, that's something we can fix ! :P

22:11:13amiconnIt might be a good idea to use those instead - I need to redo my tests with them and check whether the results are different
22:12:01amiconnWe also need all 5 compression levels (of the current format version - I don't think the older version is that interesting)
22:13:34bertrikamiconn, I have no idea if those on are any good, those are just the only ones I know about
22:14:45amiconnI can recompress them as necessary - it's just that we need a track that we can legally distribute, and it needs to be lossless to start with
