06:02:18r0b-anyone around?
06:05:54r0b-i am having USB HID issues with the e200v1
06:06:52LloreanGenerally you should be as specific as possible about the problem you're having.
06:07:19r0b-well with HID enabled in Rockbox it now says the device will not start in windows XP
06:07:32r0b-but if i disable USB HID it loads as a regular drive
06:09:05LloreanSome people have had a similar issue, I think. I thought there had been some talk of disabling HID by default
06:09:34r0b-i would definatly do that
06:09:44r0b-i was thinking it was the player
06:09:54r0b-i JUST got it today
06:11:25LloreanI think it's actually related to the host computer, but I don't really know any more
06:11:48r0b-well i will try to remove all the rockbox drivers
06:15:52r0b-finding many flaws
06:16:14r0b-in the e200's
06:17:11r0b-well this is also version 3.5.1
06:17:43LloreanWhat does that have to do with it?
06:17:56r0b-no idea
06:18:17r0b-the up to date SVN version seems flawless
06:18:45LloreanThere shouldn't be many significant differences between them.
06:19:03r0b-ok i guess its the computer

06:29:46DV_hi all
06:29:50LloreanAs I said, it doesn't work right for a lot of people, which most likely means either something still needs fixing in code, or something common is conflicting with the way we do things.
06:30:02DV_did we get shortlisted for GSOC 2010

08:16:24LloreanAmong other things, if you get steps wrong or if something's changed, someone can pitch in and help make sure things are accurate.

12:03:42S_a_i_n_tyou should have used "mformat -S 2048 -M 2048 -F DRIVE_LETTER:"
12:04:17S_a_i_n_tyou can format it again, yes.
12:04:33Parsibut linux does not show DRIVE_LETTER
12:04:41S_a_i_n_tDRIVE_LETTER = is the drive letter, obviously ;)
12:04:54Parsilike R:
12:05:36Parsiwhen i run "mformat -S 2048 -M 2048 -F R:" how it determines what drive should be formatted?
12:06:36S_a_i_n_tthat's a linux question...I'm not so good with linux.
12:07:06S_a_i_n_tAll I know about that page is that the Nano2g needs to have 2048byte sectore, instead of 512
12:08:28ParsiS_a_i_n_t: are you sure i need to format it?
12:09:32Torneyou don't need to use mformat
12:09:34S_a_i_n_twell, if its working....then its working I guess.
12:09:35Torneyou can use mkfs.vfat
12:09:39S_a_i_n_tdoes the OF boot?
12:09:42Tornebut yes, you must specify the right sector size
12:09:58S_a_i_n_tyay! an iPod guy!
12:10:10Tornethe required argument for mkfs.vfat is -S 2048 also

12:59:51Torneit doesn't matter. you need to install the bootloader with ipodpatcher, and copy the actual .rockbox directory on there. as long as you do both, it doesn't matter which order.
12:59:53linuxstbI would always install Rockbox first, then the bootloader, as the bootloader can't load Rockbox if it isn't there... (that's the order the manual says to do it)
13:00:14Dobsonhello, is it normal that when I conect my sansa fuze on rockbox it boot original firmware?
13:00:24topikthat is normal
13:00:34Dobsoni mean to wall charger
13:00:36topikso far, the fuze has no usb support in rockbox
13:01:18topikhmm, the fuze might not be able to notice the difference between pc-usb or a charger. hold down the center button while you connect your usb cable
13:01:24Parsilinuxstb: for the firsi first step, what should i do?
13:01:56linuxstbParsi: Are you using Rockbox Utility?
13:01:57mc2739Dobson: if you boot Rockbox first and then hold select while plugging in the charger, it should stay in Rockbox
13:02:03Parsilinuxstb: yes
13:02:42Dobsonin which programing language rockbox ir written?
13:03:20mc2739Dobson: it is mostly c with some asm
13:03:27linuxstbParsi: Then install the Bootloader and Rockbox. I'm not familiar with Rockbox Utility, so can't tell you exactly where to click...
13:03:52Parsilinuxstb: how do you install it yourself?

13:06:22Dobsonis this normal?
13:06:41vedwhat model?
13:06:44topikthat's fairly normal i think
13:06:47Dobsonfuze v1
13:06:55topiki don't think i get more on mine
13:07:11linuxstbParsi: Using ipodpatcher for the bootloader and the command-line "unzip" program in Linux for the main build. But Rockbox Utility should be equivalent, and works for many people.
13:07:17Dobsonwell it's v2 surroundings, i changed PCB to v1
13:07:25vedsansas v1 have something around 17h top, and it is a very good result afaik
13:07:40Dobsonso external battery then...
13:08:00Dobsonis it plausible to make rockbox use only external power source?
13:08:20Dobsonbecause charging from external battery is fairly efficient

13:55:54gevaertsnot really. I've always assumed a hardware issue, so I haven't looked into it. The OF boot code sees the USB connection, rockbox doesn't. Maybe it looks at the wrong GPIO pins, I have no idea

14:00:15S_a_i_n_tI wouldn;t know, as I don;t own one...but HID is the first thing I check if USB connectivity is sucky/broken.
14:00:17pixelmaUSB is quite a bit different though. On the X5 the side mini-B port that you can use without subpack is USB host capable (it has the controller which can't be used by Rockbox though). On the M5 this port is usual USB and works quite nicely for data transfer
14:00:50pixelmahaven't tried the subpack one in a long time because it's not necessary (although I have a subpack)

14:04:12LloreanIf it's not working for gevaerts, I would say it's not likely to be the bootloader. At the same time, an extremely outdated bootloader can cause a wide range of unpredictable behaviour.

18:20:26FlynDiceThat's what I've been thinking too but none of the hints from the linux patch seem to help...
18:21:06funmando you understand what as3543_enum & as3543_snd_controls mean? I think they define bit positions for MUTE / volume
18:22:31funmanSOC_DOUBLE_R_TLV("Master Volume", AFE_OUT_L, AFE_OUT_R, 0, 0x1F, 0, as3543_volume_tlv), << sounds like AFE_OUT_L(==HPH_OUT_L) volume goes from 0 to 0x1f, same for HPH_OUT_R
18:24:36FlynDiceI saw them but haven't quite dug into them yet, I tried the 1<<5 on DAC_L and tried (AFE_DAC_IF, 0x80, 0x0) with no luck, I was looking at the (AFE_PLL, 0x7, 3 << 2, val) line trying to figure out sub-registers last night

18:32:35Dobsondo you guys know how long it takes rockbox fully support sansa clip+
18:32:44TorneWe don't give estimate
18:32:59TorneIt takes as long as it takes, we are all doing this for fun
18:33:09Dobsonweek, month, year?
18:33:24Torneone or more of those things, yes
18:33:32funmanFlynDice: , files work, no FM yet
18:33:44linuxstbsaratoga: I don't think we should care about which specific device(s) are the first targets for RaaA - I would like at least the initial focus to be on Rockbox, and making the code work as a portable application, not solving the problems of one particular embedded OS.
18:33:48Dobsonon what based clip+? ARM?
18:34:42Dobsonhm, sadly i only have a little bit of knowlegde in AVR programing
18:35:49Dobsonso is there capability in rockbox to power player only from external power supply without battery?
18:36:02Tornenot sure what you mean
18:36:06Tornethat sounds like a hardware thing..
18:36:24funmanis sound on Clip+ worth an email?
18:36:47gevaertsfunman: of course

18:37:31Tornewell, that's nothing to do with rockbox
18:37:35Torneif the hardware works that way then it works
18:37:38Torneotherwise not
18:37:59TorneMost players should probably work without the battery, though; the usual charging arrangement allows for it
18:38:56Dobsoni would be nice to see feature in rockbox in settings to "enable power from external power source"
18:39:12Torneer, what would that do?
18:40:04Dobsonwell battery life on sansa fuze is quite bad, so i would place external big battery under the player
18:40:27Torneif you connect a power source that supplies the right voltage to the AC/USB/whatever input, then it will power the player
18:40:32Tornethere's no settings and no software involved..
18:40:38freddybI'm giving up on my keyboard patch for scrollwheel targets (FS #10763). Should I get someone to close it or just leave it?
18:40:44Dobsonwhile charging battery from another battery is not afficiant at all
18:40:46Tornefreddyb: giving up?
18:41:00TorneDobson: what?
18:41:04freddybYea, I don't think anyone is interested
18:41:19Tornefreddyb: I'm interested..
18:41:21Torneit takes time
18:41:31Tornethere's no point in closing things that are reasonable, anyway
18:41:38Torneeven if *you* lose interest, someone else might want it
18:41:52Torneit's a working patch, no? there's no reason to write it off
18:42:02Dobsoni mean if there is no feature to "do not charge battery, but power device" external battery charges internal battery, and in the process a lot of energy
18:42:15TorneThat's not how charging works
18:42:23Torneat least, not on most devices. i don't know about the fuze specifically
18:42:35TorneBut generally if the internal battery is full that's it
18:42:41freddybYes, it works. I use it pretty often because I like the search on the database.
18:42:41Tornethe external one will just be providing power.
18:42:55Dobsonbut if internal is not full
18:43:03Dobsonexternal power source would charge internal
18:43:07TorneDobson: that's, agai, a hardware feature
18:43:18TorneMost players do not have the facility to *not* charge their batteries.
18:43:20Dobsoni don't think so
18:43:25TorneThen you think wrong.
18:43:29TorneMost targets *cannot* be told not to charge.

18:45:31Tornethe charge controller for most of the targets gives the processor little or no informatoin at all
18:45:32Dobsoni get it
18:45:34Tornenot even the battery level
18:45:37fmlHello. I plan to make screenshots in the manual non-floating. Any objections? I think we don't indent them to be floating since the positioning is redefined to be 'H' (='Here!')

18:47:21freddybDobson: is your battery bad? When I was testing recording I got ~11 hours on battery on a Fuze V1.
18:47:24Tornebut generally no, what you're asking is not possible
18:47:36Torneand it really *isn't* that much of a problem to charge the internal battery
18:47:45Torneit is, technically, less efficient, but not so much you'd care too much
18:49:42Tornefreddyb: don't assume that just because nobody has done anything about it *yet* that nobody cares, anyway. Changing that kind of thing can take a long time to get interest
18:50:03r0b-ok Llorean
18:50:04Tornefreddyb: bugfixes, or obvious things like new plugins, are much easier to just go ahead and commit
18:50:25Tornefreddyb: it;'s on my list of things to experiment with, but that's quite a long list and i have other things to do than Rockbox as well )

20:19:33ranmachanI'm cleaning up the second patch right now...
20:21:11ranmachanIt's slightly confusing that there are two ascodec-target.h, one in arm/ and one in arm/as3525/.
20:21:38ranmachanIf the one in arm is only used for some other soc, shouldn't that also be in a subdirectory?
20:22:08funmanit's used by 2 different socs afaik
20:22:17funmanso as3525 includes its specific version first
20:23:18ranmachanFor the second patch I had to change arm/powermgmt-ascodec.c because it would write to IRQ_ENRD0 behind my back.

20:24:12ranmachanAnd in arm/ascodec-target.h those are just the writes.
20:24:48ranmachanIn arm/as3525/ascodec-target.h it's a reading a shadow variable for the register and anding/bitclearing the bit in question.

20:43:38ranmachanTheSeven: Type: patches, Category: OS/Drivers, Player: Sansa C200
20:43:42TheSevenafaik itunes will just try to restore anything that has an altered firmware partition

20:44:46TheSevenranmachan: done
20:45:18TheSevenfrom what i heard from itunes users, this is just to be expected with any kind of firmware mode
20:46:42Farthenitunes checks the version of the OF, recognizes that something is wrong and wants to restore it
20:47:08linuxstbFarthen: That's not the same issue then. This was itunes not recognising the ipod.

22:16:16ssbmAre there any plans for the Archos 2, because it's firmware sucks it probably needs Rockbox more than anyother player.
22:16:58krazykit`only if interested owners of the device do the porting themselves
22:17:06Luca_SThere are never plans for new ports, if anyone wants to contribute, he's welcome
22:17:11Bagderssbm: we don't plan ports, people just go ahead and make them!
22:17:21ssbmI see
22:17:29Bagderis that a rockchip btw?
22:17:35ssbmDid not know how the whole process worked

22:18:03Luca_SThe first step is usually gathering information about the player's internals and posting them on the wiki
22:18:11Bagderhe left
22:18:12Luca_Soh well, too slow :)
22:18:36BagderI know some of the recent smaller Archoses are using Rockchip, but I don't know if the 2 does
22:18:48*gevaerts grumbles about commits that claim to fix things but actually break the very thing they claim to fix
22:19:22pixelmamaybe they fix it on some other players
22:19:24gevaertspresumably only for some people...
22:19:56pixelmaI mean single devices

22:26:54gevaertsOK, reverting that on the latest trunk indeed fixes it
22:28:01pixelmaI wonder though if reverting might break it on some other X5s?
22:29:19gevaertsamiconn: according to irc logs on, your x5 might have had broken usb prior to r11261

22:31:43gevaertsIf so, could you try ?
22:31:57gevaertspixelma: could you also try that one on your M5?
22:32:46gevaertsit uses the same code
22:32:51pixelmasure, just reverting that patch or is there some adaptatio needed?
22:33:05pixelmaadaptation too
22:33:33gevaertsJust apply that one. It's against trunk, but that file doesn't change often
22:33:42pixelmahmm... I guess the file could have been renamed since

22:51:32gevaertsfred_99: do you have a build environment set up?
22:56:56gevaertsok, can you try the patch in ? That should fix the USB issue
22:56:56fred_99gevaerts: yes
22:57:12pixelmagevaerts: that patch definitely has the opposite effect on my M5 from what it does for you
22:57:14fred_99I try and tell you
22:57:23gevaertspixelma: the first one, or the second?
22:57:43gevaertsI suspect that should work for everyone
22:57:48pixelmafirst one, didn't notice there was another
22:59:12gevaertsIf the wiki is correct, the problem is that rockbox writes to an input pin. If this pin happens to have the same value that rockbox is trying to write everything is fine. If not USB doesn't work
22:59:26gevaertsMy patch just doesn't touch the pin
22:59:33pamauryTheSeven: ping
22:59:45gevaertsThe first one did, with the other value

23:02:33amiconngevaerts: The value of VBUS_POWER doesn't matter much
23:02:50amiconnIt just tells the bridge whether it should behave as a bus powered or self powered device
23:03:06gevaertsamiconn: yes, that's the theory. Setting it wrong breaks USB though
23:03:16gevaertsand "wrong" depends on the device

23:13:33amiconngevaerts: Rockbox sets it, see GPIO_ENABLE (set to output) and GPIO_FUNCTION (set to GPIO)
23:14:17amiconnAnd GPIO4 is actually used as an output pin, the wiki info is wrong

23:17:41TheSevenpamaury: pong
23:18:09pamauryTheSeven: did you see my patch on FS about FAT ? What do you think about it/did you test it ?
23:19:08TheSeveni did see it, but I didn't look at it thoroughly, neither am I familiar with that part of the rockbox code. I also haven't tested it yet (which I might just do now) as I was quite busy during the last days and somebody else had already reported success on nano2g
23:25:20 Quit phanboy4 (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
23:25:59TheSevenuntil now, i only spotted some cosmetic issues
23:26:21gevaertsIt has to be an output pin. Setting it to input causes the entire thing to reset
23:26:28pamauryTheSeven: cosmetic ?
23:27:15gevaertsDuring my experiments I did set it to input once. It wasn't a successul try...
23:28:14TheSevenpamaury: for example excessively long lines and "{" pulled up to the line where the if is, while it's below the if for most of them in the file
23:28:57TheSevenhm, or maybe not
23:29:08TheSevenseems to be already mixed quite well ;-)
23:29:21pamauryArg, perhaps. I really hate the { on the same line !
23:29:43gevaertsamiconn: Could you try setting the vbus to 0 on your X5? should do that. If it still works, there's probably something weird going on with my (and fred_99's) hardware. If it breaks for you, I think the safest thing is to not touch the bit
23:31:17TheSevenpamaury: then just go ahead and fix them all. i would appreciate it.
23:31:25TheSeven /* This should be enough to hold any name segment utf8-encoded */
23:31:27TheSeven unsigned char shortname[13]; /* 8+3+dot+\0 */
23:31:37TheSeventhis confuses me a bit, even though it wasn't touched in that patch
23:32:42pamauryTheSeven: let me check but I think the comment is not up to date, shortname is in fact just a copy of the shortname
23:32:59TheSevenyes, and the comment is simply not true.

23:34:56amiconngevaerts: If you don't touch the bit, it will be the same as setting it to 0 explicitly
23:35:12pamauryYes, the comment is not true, the size of shortname is sufficient as far as I can tell, even though it's not immediate
23:35:16gevaertshm, right
23:36:42 Quit komputes (Remote host closed the connection)
23:36:49gevaertsamiconn: are you sure? The only difference between and is that the first one does set it to 0 explicitely. They don't behave the same on M5
23:38:07gevaertsI'd expect the or_l(0x00800000, &GPIO_OUT); to leave the value at whatever was there, which should be what's set there by the boot code
23:38:36amiconnThe boot code shouldn't set anything as long as you don't use cowon loader usb
23:38:53amiconnThe reset default is 0
23:39:03amiconnAnd M5 is different
23:39:42*gevaerts is totally confused by this
23:41:23amiconnWhat puzzles me is that you say the X5 resets if you program this pin to input
23:43:10gevaertsI might have done something wrong there. Maybe I shouldn't code when tired

23:46:13TheSeven"utf8encode will return a pointer to the end of the converted string, subtract the pointer to the start to get the length of it" or something
23:46:30pamauryindeed, you're right
23:47:11gevaertsfred_99: that patch works fine for me as well, it's just some of the other changes I did while experimenting that were both broken and vague in my memory
23:47:58gevaertsI just don't know the iaudios well enough to feel confident in committing this without fear of breaking things for more people
23:48:27*amiconn needs to look up something in the CY7C68310 manual
23:48:58fred_99what I can say is my USB port never stopped to work under cowon OS .....
23:49:42gevaertsoh, right. Do you still have it set up for dual boot?
23:49:47pamauryTheSeven: you're right, I forgot a few { on a new line
23:50:03fred_99and I never had a copy issue or something else, so I think my hardware's fine
