00:14:28pamaurykugel: how do I enable kinetic scrolling on mr500 ?
00:14:42kugelswitch to absolute point mode
00:15:28pamauryoh, I'm so stupid :|
00:16:07soapnotice, Buschel, that the upper half of said screen (rotated 90 clockwise the photo is) existed in the first patch, and the lower half is present only in the last two patches.
00:16:58Buschelthat looks really crappy...
00:17:52soapyes, a crappy photo indeed.
00:18:19soapbut I think the pattern is apparent.
00:18:23Buschelthe LCD content looks even crappier...
00:18:34soapit's YOUR patch!
00:18:43Buschelcrappy patch ;)
00:19:43pamauryhum, the absolute mode is definitely not user friendly, list item are painful to select
00:20:28kugelpamaury: have you selected a large font?
00:21:23pamaurynope, I'm currently trying to switch back to english after switching to some fucking unknown language :)
00:22:41***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
00:23:58gevaertsUSB works for that :)
00:24:24pamauryok, back to some civilized language ;) What font should I pick ? 35-Nimbus ?
00:24:53gevaertsThat will work
00:25:09kugelthe bigger the better, basically :)
00:25:18pamauryyeah, works better with a huge font
00:25:29kugelthere's no minimum line spacing yet but I'm working on that
00:25:59pamauryok, so apparently, someone on FS says the touchscreen has some glitches
00:26:49kugel lists the bug reports
00:26:58thomasjfoxkugel: Does the memory size setting affect the application? What do you use on android?
00:27:19kugelthomasjfox: not really, and 8MB
00:27:38kugelessentially it's only used for the audio buffer
00:27:49pamaurygrrr, I accidently launch a video and now nothing works anymore; I'm unable to use a touchscreen interface :-/
00:27:50thomasjfoxok, thanks
00:28:15Buschelsoap: shit, saw one major issue...
00:28:19soapBuschel, I'm willing
00:28:30kugelpamaury: all plugins go back to grid mode AFAIK
00:28:42pamauryno I'm mean, it freezed
00:28:53soapahh, I was just going to say I have erands to run but am willing to stay if you have a reasonable expectation of a new patch in the next 1/2 hour.
00:30:02pamauryhuh, I do I force a power down, holding power doesn't work :o
00:30:22Buschelsoap: (will not be flawless, but should solve several issues)
00:31:15gevaertspamaury: Three methods
00:31:28gevaerts(a) find a remote and use some button combination that needs it
00:31:51gevaerts(b) open the thing and disconnect the battery (only three and a half screws)
00:31:59gevaerts(c) wait for the battery to run down
00:33:00pamaurywhat, I thought such devices must had a simple power down method to be certified ! Ok let's pick a screwdriver...
00:33:42pamauryhehe, I don't have a small enough screw driver :(
00:33:54gevaertsThey do, if you have the remote :)
00:34:11pamaurydid you give me a remote ?
00:34:17*Buschel hopes for good news
00:34:28gevaertsI don't have one
00:35:08thomasjfoxkugel: For the maemo debian package, I need a place to store the rockbox.desktop file. Creating a maemo/ directory in the root of rockbox for that sounds overkill. Should I put it in firmware/target/hosted/maemo and add a makefile there?
00:35:49gevaertsthomasjfox: or a debian package you need a debian directory in the root anyway
00:36:37thomasjfoxgevaerts: Well it that is no problem with upstream. I'm just not sure if I should clutter it with "rockbox.png" and "rockbox.desktop"
00:36:47thomasjfoxMaybe I'll put it in debian/maemo/ for now
00:37:05gevaertsYes, we'll need to think about that...
00:37:23thomasjfoxNext directory will be "pandora" if I ever get mine...
00:37:38kugelI have no problem with it, others might disagree
00:40:03gevaertsWe'll have to think. I'm not sure what will happen when we have more than one devian-derivative
00:41:09thomasjfoxgevaerts: The pandora is also debian based IIRC
00:41:16Buschelsoap: any results from the latest patch?
00:41:16soapmore sleep Buschel?
00:41:42kugelisn't the debian package ususally managed outside upstream?
00:42:52soapis that patch 6? I just built patch 5 (with the sleep/16 to sleep change).
00:43:49Buschelsoap: just use the one I posted a minute ago
00:43:50thomasjfoxkugel: It depends on the project. Some projects maintaint he debian directory upstream
00:44:14thomasjfoxHmm, dpkg-buildpackage provides no way to define an alternate "debian" directory
00:44:22soapok, I'm calling that patch 5 FWIW, new pattern (not the "normal" one from svn builds) but no crash.
00:44:36soap1/1 33.8 fps, 1/4 135.5 fps

00:48:43Buschelsoap: interesting is that I call the sleep/16-version v05, and the "fixed" version v06 :) so, please give v06 a try

00:50:58saratogatheres no way mpegplayer could be slower on the v2 then the v1
00:52:59soappattern looks better, still not "stock", Buschel. Like every other vertical line is black instead of colored.
00:53:13soapand slower, 31.3 / 125.5
00:53:51saratogahow do you even get the frame rate? if i enable the show frame rate option i see the speed flash buy way too fast to read
00:54:03soapsame effect in mpegplayer, only every other column appears drawn?
00:54:18soapsaratoga, those are test_fps framerates

00:54:59soapand play the 16:9 version. And see my conversation with jhMikeS ~24 hours ago re:4:3 framerate visibility in mpegplayer. ;)
00:55:33Buschelsoap: v07 -> (should fix the empty lines)
00:58:17soapBuschel, still a wrong pattern. 31.3 / 125.5

02:00:40Buschelyes (let's call it v10) :)
02:01:36Buschelthe speedup is smaller than I expected because I did not take all this byte swapping into account...

02:25:22soapis there not a huge disparity in the dates of those tests? Perhaps an unintended reversion took place
02:27:00Buscheleven if nano1g and color performance is compared the bottleneck in the color-LCD becomes visible. we should compare both target's LCD/CLK registers.

09:08:02alexbobPI installed rockbox with the normal installer on windows
09:08:11alexbobPit booted fine, and then ran out of batteries, and we haven't been able to get it to turn back on

09:15:38[Saint]by "4Tg Gen Classic" I assume you mean a Greyscale iPod 4G?
09:16:59[Saint]That boot cycle shouldn't be able to happed IIUC, the bootloader should error if it's not finding ,rockbox on the disk.
09:20:14alexbobPooh, that was just usbmost crashing
09:20:17alexbobPI got it back to OF and it's fine
09:21:00[Saint]Yes, I just tested it here, if ".rockbox" is moved/missing/corrupted the bootloader will display an error saying something along the lines of "Your iPod is borked, plug it in so you can fix it". So either it's finding .rockbox and the error is something else completely, or you have a really old bootloader installed.
09:26:17[Saint]alexbobP: So, does Rockbox not work on this iPod? Or is it just USB Mode that isn't functioning?

11:57:27LloreanDo you mean that having the volume at anything other than a set value increases CPU use by 8%?
11:57:58thomasjfoxYes, I changed from "hardware volume" to software volume per request from kugel / gevaerts

11:58:38 Join ender` [0] (
11:58:45LloreanIt sounds like pulseaudio isn't functioning very well... shouldn't adjusting the effective volume be pretty trivial, computationally?
11:59:44thomasjfoxIt should be
12:02:17thomasjfoxI was just thinking if rockbox maybe has ARM asm functions for that
12:03:01 Quit MethoS- (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
12:03:33LloreanAs I said, check the replaygain preamp or the equalizer precut (both are doing effectively the same thing, adding/subtracting gain from a sample I believe)
12:04:10LloreanOr is it multiplying? I dunno, I'm not really that familiar with that stuff at all, just heard it talked about
12:04:37 Quit Horschti (Quit: Verlassend)
12:04:54thomasjfoxthanks for the hint
12:05:58LloreanBut those two are, in effect, software volume. Also on the iPod 5G I believe (an ARMv4 target IIUC) the volume only goes down to -58db, which is considerably louder still than other targets. It *may* use software volume to add to the range, but I *think* it actually adjusts the volume elsewhere in the hardware instead, I'm not sure.

12:07:56kugelthomasjfox: gstreamer doesn't let you specify a volume?

12:09:13kugeloh I see
12:09:19thomasjfoxI have to add a "volume" element into the "pipeline"
12:09:58kugelrockbox can do volume in software, define HAVE_SW_VOLUME_CONTROL in application.h. it applies a gain in the dsp engine, and dsp processing is (partly) asm optimized
12:10:14kugelbut changing volume is delayed by a few seconds, but I'm sure that can be fixed
12:10:38thomasjfoxok, I'll try HAVE_SW_VOLUME_CONTROL + remove the pcm_set_volume function
12:10:55thomasjfoxbtw: I'm currently debugging the mp3 -> wave codec switch failure
12:11:11thomasjfoxI think it has something to do with firmware/load_codec.c
12:11:16thomasjfoxThere's already android magic in there :)

12:13:08kugelwhatever /.rockbox expands to, you need write and execute permissions for it
12:13:42kugelthat's why android has a special case, /.rockbox expands to /sdcard/rockbox, but the sdcard is mounted with noexec
12:13:57[Saint]I thought RB was supposed to handle not having write permission fine?
12:14:12kugelin the sdl app it should expand to $(HOME)/.config/ IIRC
12:14:51thomasjfoxThe real location of the codec files on maemo is /opt/rockbox/lib/rockbox/codecs
12:15:10thomasjfoxThough the codec reads to me it's just trying to invent a "fake" name
12:15:17thomasjfoxcodec = code
12:15:45kugelcodecs that are loaded in during buffering are loaded from a which is copied to /.rockbox
12:16:11kugel(that's because on a real target, the codec is buffered, and then loaded from memory)
12:17:11kugelon hosted, loading the codec to mem means copying the codec to some writeable dir, and then loading from means executing the copied codec binary
12:17:22kugelperhaps that can be changed, but buffering.c is a mess :)
12:18:17thomasjfoxkugel: Ok. So the path looks wrong: There's no "/.rockbox" in the root filesystem...
12:18:39kugel /.rockbox is a magic

12:37:44thomasjfox"Full filename for dlopen: /.rockbox/libtemp_binary_0.dll"
12:37:57thomasjfoxSo it looks like the directory expansion wasn't done

12:41:13thomasjfoxlc_open_from_mem() calls _lc_open() just above it
12:41:46thomasjfoxIt's working on android because the full path is hardcoded

14:46:51thomasjfoxkugel: lc_open() calls sim_get_pathname() which does not do the /.rockbox/ expansion.
14:47:05thomasjfoxkugel: The wrong path is then passed to _lc_open()
14:49:12kugelI think we should stop acting as if we were buffering the codec actually :p
14:51:15thomasjfoxThat would be much better
14:51:35thomasjfoxSpeaking of much better, the sw volume control of rockbox took way less CPU
14:52:05thomasjfoxThough it didn't work at all for the fade-on-pause (no volume change)
14:52:17thomasjfoxSo I kept the gstreamer based one for now
14:53:05 Quit BHSPitMonkey (Ping timeout: 272 seconds)
14:53:30kugelfade-on-pause needs very little delay for volume changes, sw volume has a delay of multiple seconds unfortunately

14:54:14thomasjfoxkugel: Annoying to you, feature for me :)
14:54:38thomasjfoxah ok, that also explained why the sw volume behaved quite strange on changes...
14:56:58kugelit goes through dsp, which is delayed by the pcm buffer size
14:57:40kugelthere's a possibilty to enter a low-latency mode (temporarily) though but I think it's not done for sw volume
