#rockbox log for 2010-08-22

00:01:29kugelTorne: ping
00:02:33kugelI sorted the usb thing out and I think the plugin_crt0 works nicely now
00:04:43kugelhm, (the previous diff lacks the new file)
00:05:17Tornethat looks pretty nice )
00:06:54*gevaerts prefers DEADD0D0 as a magic number
00:08:32kugelthat's negative isn't it? I wanted to avoid a negative magic because error statuses are usually negative (if they're bad), no?
00:09:11gevaertswell, it's dead, of course that's negative!

14:21:06rubenverweij_hi all! my little brother found a fake ipod nano and I would like to try and install Rockbox on it. lsusb says it's an "Actions Semiconductor Co., Ltd D-Wave 2GB MP4 Player / AK1025 MP3/MP4 Player". I have two questions: is there some other command I can run to get more info about the device and is there any hope of installing Rockbox on it? Thank you in advance!
14:21:21n1sno, no hope
14:22:27rubenverweij_@n1s: Okay, thanks. Is it also not possible to try and install it manually?
14:22:51ender`not unless you port it yourself
14:23:29n1srubenverweij_: rockbox will not work on that player unless it's ported, the fact that it *looks* like an ipod doesn't matter
14:23:40rubenverweij_Well, then I'll just leave the crappy Chinese interface on it ;-). Thanks for your time and help!

19:01:06ZaphodieAnd is there any hope of getting a working LUA implementation in the forseable future. Can't get most of anything to work.. sure i can draw some lines etc, but the implementation seems broken.
19:02:32gevaertsZaphodie: the first one is easy: because we don't have a USB driver, or as far as I know even a datasheet for the USB controller in the 3g
19:02:53ZaphodieRight.. i see how that can bring things to a halt.. :/

21:01:02funmandomonoky1: no news from the TTS project?
21:01:14terriblebanterCan you get a command prompt on rockbox and install stuff like perl or ruby?
21:01:45domonoky1nope, he never returned my last emails, and we failed him on midterm.
21:04:01funmanterriblebanter: there's a lua interpreter but no prompt
21:04:17ZaphodieHmmh. If the forums would have a subforum under hardware for all the different targets, it would make it a little bit easier to find stuff relevant to one's platform. Just my 2 cents.
21:04:49funmanZaphodie: if the forum had a subforum for each target it would be a nightmare of 40+ subforums
21:05:42ZaphodieNow it's a mess of 75 subpages of everyhting in a soup. Don't really know which is worse.
21:05:52saratoga_Zaphodie: we used to have something like that and it worked poorly
21:06:16soapyou can search the hardware forum only for your target's name, and then browse the topic titles.
21:06:21ZaphodieRight.. i'm terribly new at this rockbox stuff.. so maybe i'll lurk more, before aking a fool of myself.
21:06:51ZaphodieRight, soap.
21:06:52soapI think the moderators have been good about ensuring the proper device name is stated in all relevant threads. I'll pay more attention to that.
21:07:01saratoga_theres very little reason to search for a specific target in the forums since most things are not target specific
21:07:23soapwe are talking about the hardware subforum, though, saratoga_
21:07:45saratoga_yeah, which has very few posts, since theres not all that much to talk about
21:08:16terriblebanterCan you get command prompt on rockboxie?
21:08:33n1sterriblebanter: no
21:08:39n1sthere isn't one

21:10:53ZaphodieI found my old g3 ipod (40g) and it's so retro. I just can't get enough of the thing. I was SO bummed with the original os, so finding rockbox (while it was 3.2 or something) was a breath of fresh air. So i'we been thinking of writing some kind so a strategy game on it that would fit the UI of the 4 buttons and the wheel.. Maybe i have to go for C.. I was hoping for LUA.
21:11:22amiconn5 buttons...
21:11:22TheLemonManasm is the way
21:12:26ZaphodieAsm _is_ the way but x86 was enough and i was young then. So preferably LUA, if not then C.

21:12:55saratoga_ASM is not the way
21:13:02saratoga_using it for a strategy game is dumb
21:13:10Zaphodieit sure would be
21:13:23saratoga_and would probably be rejected since it wouldn't run on like half our targets
21:13:33soap$100 is yours, Zaphodie, if you port freeciv
21:13:37TheLemonManmost mp3 players are arm, arm is simply sweet
21:14:05ZaphodieThanks soap. A bit (or a lot) beyond my scope.
21:14:12TheLemonManthe smart use of the pipeline gives a 150% speed boost
21:14:22amiconnmost != all
21:14:50amiconnAnd even for arm you need to vary the code for the different arm versions and architecture versions
21:15:38TheLemonManuse armv5 specifications and youre ok for 90% of the targets
21:15:39amiconnAsm makes sense for a few low-level, speed critical functions
21:15:45amiconnNo, you aren't
21:16:03amiconnMost rockbox arm targets are v4
21:16:19amiconnAnd there you have to distinguish between arm7 and arm9
21:16:45ZaphodieBack way when mouse drivers for MS-DOS were too bulky to use with specific games, asm was a godsent.. then came and all my asm skills were made moot.
21:17:23TheLemonManmmkay mp3 player games must be coded in C then ^^
21:18:07funmanZaphodie: did you notice the boomshine game ?
21:18:12saratoga_TheLemonMan: i think we don't have a single stable armv5 target
21:18:19saratoga_but a few unstable ones
21:18:51ZaphodieWhen i was in jail, a space opera strategy game with even a smudge of AI would have kept me entertained for hours on end. Would have made the time go faster. That's the motivation behind it.
21:18:57TheLemonManSoC are v4 ?
21:19:06amiconnWe do have one armv6 target though

22:01:14saratoga_n1s: yeah, but theres still BSD headers on that file

22:01:39saratoga_we need to be careful about mixing
22:02:21funmanperhaps the function can go in a separate .h
22:02:22n1suh, ok so how do i fix that? just revert the commit since it's just for a minor speedup?
22:02:57saratoga_would it be hard to rewrite it?
22:03:11funmanput it in a .h with a LGPL license ?
22:03:31saratoga_it looks like the function is already partially rewritten
22:04:03n1si'd rather do the separate .h, well, they are doing the same things and i suppose it was written from the spec
22:04:33saratoga_could you just remove the remaining ffmpeg bits?
22:05:42n1sthe ffmpeg bits are basically the unrolled special case which is the reason for the speedup, i think so that would just be a revert
22:07:09n1sI'll just drop it in a separate .h
22:07:55kugelI don't think you can avoid license issues with .h files?

22:09:16funmanthe licenses are compatible but it's important to indicate which piece of code is under which license, in the case of source redistribution
22:09:17n1skugel: the binary is already gpl since it links with gpl code but individual source files can be other (compatible) license
22:09:20funmanif someone only wants BSD he just has to drop the .h

22:24:23n1sso that would need to be rewritten or adapted from tremor or something
22:26:51n1sthose arrays could of course be allocated just as large as they need to be but then we would fail on theoretical files that some users probably has somewhere
