04:15:40shuffle2reading a file to mem (hopefully)
04:15:59shuffle2i don't know how large the ram is on an ipod video, heh
04:16:42JdGordon|buffer_alloc() will permenantly take part of the buffer, you can borrow the plugin buffer (temporarily) or the audio buffer if audio is stopped
04:16:43shuffle2transfer from hdd over usb
04:17:06shuffle2i mean, from hdd and out the external usb
04:17:39JdGordon|if audio is stopped you might be able to just use audiobuf without any fiddling (slightly dangerous though)
04:18:20shuffle2so what you're really saying
04:18:26shuffle2is there's no good way to do this?
04:18:52JdGordon|no, there are a few ways, I need a bit more info to tell you the best way though
04:18:59shuffle2ask away
04:19:27JdGordon|35k? you can probably just use get_plugin_buffer()
04:19:44shuffle2you can do this from firmware code?
04:19:46*JdGordon| doesnt know which (if any) buffers usb steals to work
04:19:52JdGordon|probably not

04:22:25shuffle2well it'd be nicer to have proper file i/o

05:37:38darkenvyyea lol
05:37:48darkenvymore of configuration of rockbox or whatnot
05:38:38darkenvylike I enjoy using my ipod as a flash drive but it wont support files over 4gb
05:38:46darkenvyany way I can format as fat32 and still have rockbox?
05:39:04JdGordon|you HAVE to have fat for rockbox to work, fat32 is best
05:40:18darkenvythats fine
05:40:31darkenvyim a linux user anyways, fuck ntsc lol
05:41:06JdGordon|you cant watch tv on your ipod
05:41:07darkenvyso this is a noob question but how do I format to fat32 and then STILL format via window's itunes so Ic an install rockbox?
05:41:22JdGordon|use itunes
05:41:41darkenvyI thought itunes formats to fat
05:41:48darkenvyfat = 4gb filesize limit?
05:42:08JdGordon|2GB isnt it?
05:42:17JdGordon|fat16 might be 2, fat32 is 4
05:42:37spike__kids these days
05:42:45darkenvyso no way I can get arger files onto this unless I partitioned huh?
05:43:02darkenvysounds good

13:53:55pSiKOhello all
13:54:00pSiKOit seem that the last RB build (28208) have trouble with sd card on sansa fuze v2
13:54:27pSiKOas I plug the sd card RB stop to respond, is it a knows bug ??
13:55:23pSiKObuikld from yesterday at list "see" the sd card but cannot read file
13:56:15funmanpSiKO: check the card's filesystem with windows scandisk/chkdsk or linux fsck and try again
13:56:21funman(this not a known bug)
13:56:48pSiKOI do, and the card is corerectly read with the OF
13:57:26pSiKOI just put one file on the sd, and with the OF no trouble
13:57:52pSiKOI format the sd in fat / vfat no change
13:58:02funmani remember such an issue but not sure if it was a fuzev1 or v2, let me look on the forum
13:58:20pSiKOwith the yesterday firmeware RB can see the sdcard and the song
13:58:36pSiKObut can't play it
13:59:21pSiKOI see on the forum a poste relating sdcard timming, but it's old
13:59:39funmanneither, it was on a clip+ (so, similar to fuzev2)
14:00:09funmanif you can send me the card i could try to have a look but i don't promise success
14:00:44pSiKOok you think it's card issue ?
14:00:54funmanwhat is the spec of the card (class, size, brand); and could you write down what is written in the debug menu (system -> debug -> view disk info)
14:01:27pSiKOok, I will do
14:01:55funmanif it works in the OF there is no reason it couldn't work in rockbox; there might be something special that we need to do though. Some cards might not strictly adhere to the SD specifications, but hardware/software might be more or less tolerant with them
14:02:04pSiKOI dont have the sd card here, I will note all the info (as you tell me)
14:02:30pSiKOthat wath I thinking
14:02:38 Quit Farthen (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)

14:03:16pSiKOok nice
14:03:42funmanmc2739: the clipv2 picture is missing in SansaAMSUnbrick
14:03:46pSiKOif trouble persist I send you the SDcard
14:05:40timonatorhey, i have the same problem with my clip+ and microSD cards. i should see if i can get a build environment up and running
14:06:03CIA-81New commit by teru (r28209): pictureflow: ...
14:06:15pSiKOwhat I found strange is the regression compared to the yesterday build
14:07:41CIA-81r28209 build result: All green
14:11:13funmanpSiKO: there was no fuzev2 changes so the causes might be complex (different delays, code alignement)
14:11:37pSiKOhmmm, ok
14:12:07pSiKOvery strang, on my sans e280 , the card work nice with RB
14:12:12pSiKOsans RB build
14:13:16pSiKOanyway thanks a lot for the info , tomorow I come back with my card and more info

18:29:28darkenvyhey can someone help me?
18:30:14darkenvyIs it true you must compile rockbox myself in order to have a compatible 240gb hdd ipod?
18:32:43alexbobPthat sounds like a weird rule
18:32:47alexbobPhave you tried the normal installer?
18:33:05darkenvyread here:
18:33:21darkenvythis is so old (2007) that it may no longer apply and may be included in the new updates
18:35:39darkenvyits a big deal as I dont know how to gather, open and compile everything
18:35:43gevaertsdarkenvy: no
18:35:57gevaertslarge disk support was added before 3.6
18:36:03darkenvyyou use hmmm?
18:36:16darkenvyso Im good to go?
18:36:20*gevaerts never uses hmmm
18:36:35darkenvythat was a typo lol
18:37:24n1sthat page is specific for Archos devices though
18:38:02darkenvyIll do the installer then and be on my way
18:39:20n1sall hard disk based ipod ports have lba48 support enabled so it should work
18:39:58n1s*but* we rely on the apple in rom loader to load the rockbox bootloader from disk so it needs to handle the disk as well
18:40:01alexbobPis there any limit to how big a microsd card I can stick in my sansafuze?
18:41:35gevaertsalexbobP: there shouldn't be
18:42:01gevaertsSDHC specifies up to 32GB, although that's an artificial limit. Rockbox doesn't have limits for it
18:42:10darkenvywhat about the when ipod 5 and 5.5s become extinct/rare?
18:42:40darkenvywhat other slick looking device holds hdds? the archos looks ugly
18:43:49alexbobPgevaerts: so theoretically if I had a usb to microsdhc adapter, I could connect big hard drives?
18:43:57AlexPThe archos that we support are very old and use 2.5" hdds
18:44:25AlexPThe newer hd targets are 1.8" (a couple are 1" microdrive0
18:44:47gevaertsalexbobP: I'd say the likelyhood of those appearing is rather small, but yes
18:45:18 Join bertrik [0] (~bertrik@rockbox/developer/bertrik)
18:45:57alexbobPgevaerts: aww, well I hope they do appear! either that or rockbox will need usb host support!

18:47:35darkenvywhat about rockbox for iphone
18:47:39darkenvyhas that ever been discussed?
18:48:25darkenvyI am kinda tired of the boring ios
18:49:53n1srockbox for iphone would either be an application under ios or a firmware replacement with no users
18:50:02n1siOS of course
18:50:55alexbobPwell if there's rockbox for android
18:51:00alexbobPthen iphone users can install android on their iphones
19:01:56***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
19:03:23AlexPApple won't allow it, so it'd have to be for jail broken ones
19:03:40AlexPSomeone is of course free to do it, but there isn't much dev interest
19:05:31darkenvywell kailbreaking is now legal and the spirit of rockbox is to break free
19:06:30Bagderdarkenvy: go ahead!
19:06:35darkenvyoh theoreticly, if it were to happen, it would have to run at LEAST jailbroken apps. so I could see how the difficulty in designing would be

19:12:34AlexPSort of, there is a thread in the forums

19:12:41AlexPalexbobP: It duplicates functionality
19:12:42Tornemicrocontrollers are not powerful enough to run rockbox
19:12:56alexbobPAlexP: do they strike down an app for doing what they do but better?
19:12:56TornealexbobP: Apps are not allowed to duplicate/compete with built in functionality
19:12:59alexbobPthat's pretty egotistical

19:13:15alexbobPthis is why I am a proud non-iphone-owner

19:14:26funmani'm ok for bashing apple but on #rockbox-community
19:14:27darkenvythere is a topic?
19:14:48alexbobPdarkenvy: go to #rockbox-community!
19:14:49funmanthe topic is rockbox, everything else is offtopic
19:14:57darkenvyokay but no arduino project can support the rockbox kernel at all?
19:15:11alexbobPdarkenvy: you know what's even better than jailbreaing your iphone? getting an android :D
19:15:20Torneno. the arduino is a 16-bit AVR
19:15:33TorneRockbox needs a 32-bit processor and needs 10-50x as much RAM
19:15:40Torneas an absolute minimum, ideally a lot more.
19:15:44darkenvy(no I love androids btw, but im around macs everyday and the integration actually is quiet great)
19:16:22Tornedarkenvy: the smallest rockbox devices have 1MB of RAM iirc?
19:16:43TorneWe could maybe go to 1MB if we tried *really hard*
19:16:50funmanno, 1MB is easily doable
19:16:57Tornethe current arduinos have 4KB i think?
19:17:07alexbobP4kb ram? laaaame!
19:17:12gevaertsThere are some 1MB ports-in-progress, but I don't think any of those ever got far enough to even try to get playback working
19:17:13Torneand they are probably 1/10th the performance of the slowest CPU we run on
19:17:28Torneand the processor is just not wide enough
19:17:45Tornevery little of our code will work on a system where 32-bit arithmetic is an optional extra :)
19:18:06darkenvythen what is doable for a custom built rockbox device?
19:18:24Torneyou would almost certainly be after an ARM processor
19:18:32gevaertsI'd say ARM with 16MB or more
19:18:33Tornean ARM9 is probably a good bet these days
19:18:37Bagdera lowend ARM9 is a good buy
19:18:49 Join Horscht [0] (~Horscht@xbmc/user/horscht)
19:19:08gevaerts2MB will work, but I don't see why you should limit yourself to that if you're not trying to pinch another half dollar off the production cost
19:19:20Torneyeah, the sdram is not that expensive

19:19:54 Join domonoky [0] (~Domonoky@rockbox/developer/domonoky)
19:20:05Torneheh, the current normal arduinos have 2KB ram, only the mega one has 4kb ;)
19:20:31darkenvyit seems that if you are trying to get it working on 2MB you are sacrofising stability at one point
19:20:40darkenvyjust to get it to maybe work on an arduino one day?
19:20:54darkenvyI say keep the bulk
19:20:56TorneWe already run on targets with 2 megabytes of memory
19:21:01Tornesome possible targets have one megabyte
19:21:04darkenvyoh really?
19:21:06Tornearduinos have two *kilobytes*
19:21:10Tornewhich is 1000 times less
19:21:32Tornethey are also, probably, not too far off being 1000 times slower as well
19:21:35darkenvyyes but apparently there is a project for a 1MB daughterboard or soemthing
19:21:42Tornethat's not going to help
19:21:55Tornean arduino is a different class of processor altogether
19:22:03Torneit's what people normally call a microcontroller, not a microprocessor :)
19:22:08Tornethough the distinction is kinda blurry
19:22:14darkenvyanyways I gotta go
19:22:18Tornenot being 32-bit is a dealbreaker, no matter how much ram it has

22:56:24nymtarthe only thing what worries me about the clip is the non-changeable-battery :/

22:56:49domonokyand i was too lazy to fix that, so i just commented the call in utils.cpp for this test :-)
22:57:00bluebroth3rah, so it fails during linking?
22:57:27alexbobPnymtar: everything has a changeable battery, if you'r emotivated ;)
22:58:15bluebroth3rok, so the test project file would need some more linker options.
22:58:37domonokyjup, looks like it

23:37:34froggymanI have already updated an unpatched version of firmware to my fuze v2 and removed the .rockbox folder. Is there anything else I need to do to completely remove all traces of rockbox from it?

23:38:34alexbobPfroggyman: are you afraid that the dystopian anti-open-source-police will confiscate it if they find traces?

23:38:58froggymanno, just SanDisk. I need to send it in for RMA
23:39:02alexbobPanyways, removing the .rockbox directory and bootloader should be enough...
23:39:07alexbobPah, probably a good call
23:39:21alexbobPit would suck if they tried to weasel out of supporting you and used rockbox as an excuse
23:40:08froggymanYep, exactly my thought. Which is why I want to be sure that i have removed rockbox from it

23:44:26amiconnTorne: iPod video 5.5G already *does* use a nonstandard sector size
23:45:13amiconn2KB - so it should allow disks up to 8TB.
23:48:13gevaertsThe question is how likely it is that there will ever be 1.8" PATA drives that big
23:48:40*gevaerts decides not to bet on it
23:50:58amiconnCurrently our ata driver won't handle >2TB, because even with large physical sectors the actual addressing still uses 512-byte sectors, and we use 32 bit vars
23:51:22amiconnThat's an easy fix if such big disks will ever appear though
