00:55:34[Saint]by way of design and conditionals...I no longer have to do any fancy blocking of the popups to prevent one opening on top of the other. I _think_.
00:56:40[Saint]It *could* still happen that one could open the volume popup overtop of the context/filebrowser/quickscreen popup...but I would assume that's not *too* much of a problem as it might even be wanted.

00:59:27[Saint](you might want to change the volume before the other popup has timed out perhaps...? bah, dunno. I might have to come up with a way to block this from happening if it gets annoying. It's not possible to do the reverse anymore and open the files popup overtop of the volume popup and have them both dissappear until they've timed out)

01:15:49bluebrother[Saint]: I don't have any special problems with DroidSans. The spacing is bad but I guess this related to the convttf cinversion
01:16:05*[Saint] nods.
01:16:16bluebrotherother from that I like the DejaVu font famuly a lot
01:17:08[Saint]I might swing in that direction then, and're correct, there was no option to force fixed width numerals in convttf when I converted the fonts originally.
01:17:42bluebrotherso as long as the spacing issue is fixed and it has a license that allows us to redistribute it I don't mind using DroidSans
01:17:50[Saint]also, it didn't seem to respect a few params in its earlier days, so font height and char spacing was a bit of a gamble.
01:18:15bluebrotherthough I think using DejaVu would be nice
01:19:03[Saint]GodEater has some form of aversion to the DroidSans family...and I'm in "keep everyone happy" mode.
01:19:47[Saint]So, I'll give DejaVu a try....I might also make an Ubuntu test-font too to see how it looks.
01:20:02bluebrotherthen try DejaVu :)
01:21:11[Saint]I've also dropped the tabs as well...the popups are still there, but I figured out a better (?) way of launching them, whilst cutting back on doubled-up touch areas.
01:21:45 Join Zarggg [0] (
01:21:52[Saint](there was some concern at the tabs making people attempt to "swipe" the, removing them fixes this I guess ;))
01:22:54[Saint]the volume icon launches the volume pop-up/mute, and the current track info launches the filebrowser/context menu/quickscreen pop-up.

01:52:37[Saint]Ok...right, I just need to convert the font (I'll do both Ubuntu and DejaVu and probably put in a .cfg to switch between the two easily for reference) and then I'll put up new links on my theme's thread for the scrutiny of those interested.
01:53:01[Saint]...I might not get time to do the font until I get home, though. So a few hours.

09:59:13sfrankyhi everyone!
09:59:34sfrankyis anyone watching?
10:00:12n1sthere are lots of people in here, do you have a question?
10:00:21sfrankyi would seriously appreciate some help... i can't install rockbox on an ipod nano 2g, i have tried everything
10:00:26 Join efyx [0] (
10:00:49sfrankyI install it, and then it freezes after 1-2 sec
10:01:28sfrankyI have formatted it, restored it, uninstalled the bootloader and reinstalled it, but it's always the same.. one or two times I even saw garbled graphics
10:01:59n1sso, after installing the bootloader the ipod freezes?
10:02:23sfrankyafter completing the whole installation, and unplugging it from usb, it loads, and then freezes
10:02:37sfrankyI see the main menu, I scroll up and down a bit and then boom
10:02:52n1sif you then reset it, what happens?
10:03:00sfrankythere's one thing i don't get... I read in the website that I m supposed to encrypt rockbox.ipod into rockbox.ipodx from *within* the ipod... I never have the chance to do it
10:03:02GodEatersounds like you *can* install it, just that it doesn't like working much.
10:03:02sfrankythe same
10:03:18sfrankyyes, I mean I can't have a working installation
10:03:33sfrankyany ideas?
10:03:37sfrankyah sorry
10:03:43n1ssfranky: you shouldn't need to encrypt anything unless you compiled your own bootloader
10:04:00sfrankysome times it says "undefined instruction at <00000000> , where that could be anything reallly
10:04:06sfrankyAh, no I didn't
10:04:07n1ssfranky: it works fine in the Original Firmware?
10:04:43sfrankytoday I used itunes' restore function
10:05:12sfrankyand I got a new set of errors at the end of rockbox's installation (after reboot), but it soon started doing the exact same things again after 1-2 resetes
10:05:13n1si'd recommend asking TheSeven, he's the main guy for nano2g
10:05:50sfrankyI don't think he's really here now though..
10:06:05n1sare you doing the installation with rbutil or manually?
10:06:19GodEaterthat's the way IRC works sadly - we can't all be here all the time
10:06:21sfrankyI tried installing the bootloader with ipodpatcher
10:06:26sfrankyyes i know
10:06:41sfrankyalso, rbutil always says I already have the bootloader installed
10:06:49sfrankyeven if I restore the ipod to the factory defaults
10:06:59sfrankythough nothing shows up in the info tab
10:07:28n1sIIRC itunes restore doesn't remove the bootloader
10:07:54sfrankydidn't know that... anyway I tried with ipodpatcher and it seemed to work, but I still get the same message from rbutil
10:08:22n1shmm, strange
10:08:24sfrankyand the first error I got when fresh installing today was stack underflow viewport manager something
10:08:31sfrankybut that never came up again
10:09:54sfrankyI hate the ipod UI, I was given one second had as a gift, and I m trying to make it look like my old iriver h140 :(
10:10:35n1sgetting different errors like this indicates some corruuption IMO, so there could be something about the hw in your ipod that differs slightly from the ones that have been tested that we don't handle correctly somehow
10:10:54sfrankyok, sounds reasonable
10:11:13sfrankyis there anything else i can try?
10:11:42n1snothing that comes to mind except asking TheSeven
10:11:56sfrankybut he's not available...
10:12:01sfrankyi ll try another time then
10:12:10sfrankythanks very much n1s!
10:12:23n1sno problem, i hope you get it working

10:15:57sfrankyisn't the rockbox.ipod in the .rockbox dir supposed to be rockbox.ipodx??
10:17:25sfrankyok so this is also true only for the custom bootloader builds
10:17:26n1sif the encryption was the problem it wouldn't work for a second and then hang
10:17:54sfrankyoh right
10:18:08n1swell, the bootloader needs to be encrypted
10:18:33n1sit's flashed though so it doesn't really keep a filename

14:18:05GodEaterTorne: sweet.
14:37:34*n1s hopes for a UsingGit page in the wiki popping up :)
14:37:44Tornen1s: Not just yet
14:38:14Tornei'm trying to set up a proper demo of gerrit first
14:38:44Tornebecause the specific details of how we opt to host things will be relevant for decent instructions
14:39:42n1sof course, i just think it would be very nice when we switch to make it easier for us git illiterates and probably make it less likely people do something wrong
14:39:51TorneI was also gonna produce such instructions, yes
14:39:58Tornebut not just yet :)
14:40:19Tornegerrit seems to be a pretty great option from my testing so far
14:40:55Torneit works as an authenticated server without needing ssh accounts (like gitosis and other things) but with a handy web interface to upload your ssh keys and so on
14:41:07Torneand then it also is a patch review system
14:41:58n1sso a bit like a more functional viewvc?
14:42:02TorneNo, it doesnt' do that part
14:42:17Tornethough it can link to one (it knows how to construct links for gitweb, cgit, etc)
14:42:51n1si guess i'll read up once it' sall set
14:42:52TorneI've taken the demo i put up at devcon down again for now pending reconfiguring it slightly
14:43:01Tornebut you can see one at
14:43:04Tornewhich is AOSP's gerrit
14:45:08n1sso it's like a patch/changeset queue where changes need to be reviewed to finally get into the repo?
14:45:19Torneit's up to configuration whether they *need* to be reviewed
14:45:45Tornei am proposing we allow committers to push directly to the tree still
14:45:58Tornebut people can optionally put things up for review first
14:46:04n1syeah, i like that
14:46:09Torneand non-committers can also create accounts on gerrit and put things up for review
14:46:24Torneand then a committer can commit it directly from gerrit without having to apply patch locally etc
14:46:30n1smight be easier to get attention than for a patch in fs
14:46:49TorneWell one big advantage over FS is you can comment directly on lines of a change
14:47:06Torneand comments apply to specific versions of the patch (you can upload new ones)
14:47:17n1ssounds good
14:47:19Torneone downside is that gerrit doesn't currently accept input via email
14:47:30TorneIt can send email when new things are uploaded, or when someone asks you to review something
14:47:46Tornebut right now you have to go to the web interface, or poke it via ssh, to comment/approve/reject
14:48:29n1scan you do fs by email?
14:48:52Tornenot sure.
14:48:58 Quit bieber (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
14:49:10Tornebut the alternative proposal discussed at devcon was to do this just by sending patches to rockbox-dev and discussing there
14:49:11n1sso that's probably no worse than what we have now
14:49:13Tornei.e. no tools
14:49:32Torneso I was hoping I could find a way to do it that had the best of both worlds.
14:49:53TorneIt's probably possible to write a lil email hook script that feeds comments from email back into gerrit
14:50:22Tornegerrit supports programmattically adding comments for things like buildbot output or automated source checks
14:51:31n1sa webinterface is fine to me
14:51:46Torneyah, i'm happ with that
14:52:00Tornei'm just trying to cover as many people's preferred use cases as I can to increase the chance that there is general approval of gerrit ;)
14:53:26n1si do think we have a bit too many channels of communication though so if this works out, maybe we should scale fs back to just bugs?
14:53:33Torneyes, that ws the idea
14:53:38Tornewe would stop accepting patches on FS
14:53:57Torneand then *either* have people put patches in some kind of review tool which is better at dealing with them, or have people mail them to rockbox-dev
14:54:06Tornepeople were in favour of both options
14:54:19Torne(the existence of a review tool doesn't preclude mailing patches, of course)
14:54:43Torne(but the existence of a review tool *does8 stop people from handling everything by email)

14:56:43Torneaanyway. we seem to be decided on moving to git, but there are still questions about how to host it, how to convert current svn (our git-svn mirror is only trunk, we may want to convert it with something else which keeps all the branches/etc), and what the general preferred workflow/policy should be (whether that's enforced by tools or just advised)
14:57:12Torneso i'm gonna write up some proposals around this soon and see what people think
14:57:54Torneincluding a more or less fully functional gerrit instance with a pretend rockbox repo people can play with
14:58:10Tornei had it half going at devcon but my server apparently can't quite send email correctly atm ;)

15:42:12SzeraaxGood Morning! So Yesterday, I was dl'ing the source for rockbox to do some of my own tinkering through SVN (with Cygwin), and my copying of the trunk got interrupted. Is it possible to resume copying the trunk?
15:42:29Torneyup, just do svn update
15:42:41Torneit should carry on from where it left off (and also update any of the files you have downloaded that have changed)

20:27:40AlexPAs the devs are realy the ones whose opinions come first :)

20:30:42AlexPI dislike generally separating podcasts from any other type of file
20:31:31sideral:) see?
20:31:51AlexPRight, and devs opinions win over users
20:32:02AlexPSo you need to convince the devs first :)
20:33:22sideralI think it might be easier to convince the developers if there's no need to hypothesize whether there actually is any demand
20:33:43AlexPMaybe, but demand hasn't meant anything in the past
20:34:12AlexPAs in if the devs don't want something, some users wanting it doesn't change anything :)
20:34:25AlexPAnyway, I'm not talking about this thing now
20:34:31AlexPJust in general terms :)
20:34:53sideralSure. But please remember that I am a developer, I'm not asking anyone to do the work for me :)
20:35:01AlexPOh, I know :)
20:35:17AlexPBut that doesn't mean it'll get in if the others are against it :)

20:36:38AlexPbut yeah, possibly
20:36:50AlexPIt is a general dislike of mine, not a hard rule :)

20:39:33*amiconn agrees with AlexP
20:39:33amiconnFurthermore I don't really understand why spoken word needs different handling than other audio stuff
20:39:33sideralI could live with configurable directories. autoresume implements it this way
20:39:40sideralanother alternative I see is having per-directory .config files. Why has that idea been rejected in the past?
20:39:43AlexPI would stick out long against anything that forces certain naming/layouts
20:39:51AlexPThis is you being a db user I think
20:39:59AlexPNot caring much where things are on disk
20:40:30AlexPsideral: I'm not sure, per dir config would be nice if done properly
20:40:52sideralI do care where stuff is. But I think asking users to place stuff into a certain (configurable) dir if they want some function seems reasonable to me
20:40:55amiconnPer directory config is actually hard to do
20:40:59AlexPsideral: Not to me
20:41:13AlexPI find it the exact opposite

20:41:34AlexPI don't want to have to move bits of it around just to get a feature to work
20:41:45amiconnSince we don't want to spin the disk on each track change, you would somehow have to store such configuration data as part of each buffered track's metadata
20:42:16AlexPamiconn: Yeah, that's what I meant by properly - I don't think the idea itself is rejected, it just has to be done to avoid stuff like that
20:42:19sideralamiconn: I figure it could be cached quite easily.
20:43:13amiconnLess easily atm considering we have two different playback engines, each having its own buffering system
20:43:16sideralper-dir config could open up more configurability that's often requested, such as per-podcast compressor settings
20:44:01AlexPIt'd also make a lot of other things not necessary
20:44:02*amiconn will hopefully be able to do something about that
20:44:27AlexPPeople can have fine grained settings and not the ones we pick for different "modes", and applied to wherever they want

21:35:34n1sper dir configs would also be tricky if you want the settings to *only* apply in that dir since you'd need to keep the old settings somewhere and what if you have a playlist with tracks from multiple dirs and one dir has a settings change that needs a reboot or a playback restart?

21:36:12n1sand does the settings menu reflect the settings in the current dir?

22:19:20gevaertssideral (I hope you read logs): the way I understand the wikipedia task is that freqmod did add a lot to the wikipedia patch, but he didn't write the original one, and whoever did that has not been identified
22:20:55gevaertsSo no, I don't agree that this should have been left open

22:25:59pixelmathere were so many comments and changes in the patch that I quickly lost track
22:32:44pixelmagevaerts: doesn't sound like freqmod based his work on the project mentioned right before in the task but I am not sure. Maybe he can tell us more about its history and as I said it should be possible to get hold of him

22:33:21pixelmamaybe not immediately
22:34:50gevaertshm, that's possible
22:36:24pixelmaor maybe he even was referred to in the misticriver link post, unfortunately it doesn't seem to be around anymore (or maybe you have to be registered or whatever)
22:37:56gevaertsright, on re-reading it looks like the code may be from freqmod after all, with later modifications by other people, who all seem to be named
