07:03:36JdGordonis the playlist catalog setting actually settable outside of the config.cfg? (i.e in menus)
07:03:44***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
07:03:45JdGordonthe manual doesnt say very much here
07:03:58JdGordon"The Playlist catalog offers a shortcut to all playlists in your player’s specified playlist directory. It can be used like the File Browser"
07:04:49*JdGordon should proably finish <a target="_blank" href="">FS #11808a> to fix that suckiness
07:05:36LloreanJdGordon: Would it be possible in the theming of lists to also make the scroll direction configurable? So you could scroll up/down or right left (by single entries or pages)? I guess I'm not sure if that is a 'theme' setting, but sideways scrolling might be desired for the grid-style.
07:06:45JdGordonwell, sideways will be how it works in a grid pattern
07:07:20JdGordonall targets with page scrolling will work as expected
07:09:08LloreanWell, as long as scrolling of strings works, I'm pretty much happy really. But *I* like vertical scrolling grids m'self, but also see a lot of horizontal ones, which is why I felt optional might be good.
07:09:29LloreanDo RTL locales typically also scroll 'pages' of icons right to left as well?
07:11:17JdGordonno idea how RTL scrolls through icon tables
07:11:35JdGordoni imageine they are ordered differently but otherwise as expected
07:12:04JdGordoni.e they start at the top right and move left instead of starting top left
07:12:36LloreanYeah, but for example, do you then swipe your finger from left to right because the "next" page is to the left of the current page, rather than to the right?
07:13:13*JdGordon will try to get a hold of some israeli buddies to ask

12:27:16JdGordonrg-per: you'll help everyone if you stop using abbreviations please. I assume RG is supposed to mean replay gain? others might guess something else
12:29:35rg-perobjection noted JDG. RG is indeed Replay Gain. all the tracks have their relevant values, just that the albums were scanned with Foobar as "Per File Track", if Rockbox's RGain is set to album, I guess that playback will be at the same volume ?

13:37:22kugelit's a setting which shouldn't have been added in the first place ;)
13:37:29kugelwho uses it, really?
13:41:10n1sit's *old* so i assume it might have been nice on small lcds where you would have most filenames etc longer than could be shown
13:42:28AlexPSo if I understand the manual correctly, if it is off and you hold left/right to scroll then only those entries longer than the screen will scroll
13:42:44AlexPIf it is on, then all will scroll, leading to them disappearing off the screen?
13:42:45 Join Thra11 [0] (~thrall@
13:43:46amiconnDisappearing eventually. The setting can be useful if you have several tracks with the same prefix (e.g. Interpret) in a folder
13:44:32n1sAlexP: just tested adn that is correct
13:44:48amiconnScrolling all lines equally keeps the nice line-up, while scrolling each line until its right end doesn't
13:45:14AlexPwell, I have no strong feeling about the setting itself - only that if we introduce new ways of doing things we should either strive to make them support all settings, or if the setting is useless remove it
13:45:18amiconnThat said, I don't use horizontal screen scrolling at all, even on Archos
13:45:51n1sit's actually quite confusing imo, if i first long press right things scroll, and if i then press long left they scroll back, but if i just press long left i go up several levels in the file tree
14:07:24JdGordonI'm not putting effort into a setting noone uses though :) not while there is other stuff to worry about
14:07:34JdGordonI was more hoping to get discussion on the rest of the idea
14:10:29JdGordonalsotime to bump <a target="_blank" href="">> ?
14:10:45JdGordonanyone remember any thoughts they had on the playlist handling changes
14:16:38sideralkugel: Have you been able to reproduce any of the recent dircache breakage, and do you intend to fix any of it? stack overflows, garbage filenames in file browser, tagcache corruption?
14:16:44sideralI'm asking because running without dircache is somewhat inconvenient :)
14:19:29n1sJdGordon: sounds good, although i hardly use premade playlists
14:25:43kugelsideral: I thought it was a "simple" stkov problem?
14:25:56kugelI'm not convinced my patches actually increased stack usage
14:26:48sideralWell, all observations of the stack-overflow issue are post-3.9, so that's suspicious :)
14:27:10sideraland there's also the other issues I mentioned.
14:27:20sideralalso new after your june commits
14:27:23kugelyou once said someone reported it on 3.9
14:28:21sideralkugel: I thought we discussed this before? He first said it was 3.9, but then produced a version number that corresponds to a post-3.9 build
14:28:39kugelI don't remember that
14:29:05sideralOK, then maybe I dreamt it, apologies
14:30:14sideralI think people often are unaware of the release-branch forking and confuse a current build from the day of the release with the actual release
14:31:06kugeldid you check if bumping the stack helps?
14:31:50sideralNot yet. I've seen the stack overflow only once myself. But I can reliably reproduce the trashed-filename problem
14:33:10sideralI think it's related to dircache reloading after a tagcache update as well
14:33:14kugelall other problems could be caused by the stkov ;)
14:33:47siderala trashed filename in every dir? seems unlikely, but not inconceivable ;)

18:58:31Slasheriyour player builds dircache foreground on every boot?
18:58:54sideralI think so. I'm using a FuzeV2 right now
18:59:16Slasheriok, then that's another problem
18:59:32Slasheriit should normally build it in background
19:00:35sideralErm. The 2nd time (after DB update) is definitely in background. I actually don't know how it's build the first time; probably background as well.
19:01:16Slasheriif it says "scanning disk" on boot, that's foreground
19:01:23Slasheriotherwise bg
19:02:27sideralI think I've seen that message flash by. It vanishes pretty quickly so I'm not sure. :) But the 2nd dircache build definitely is in the background. Why does it matter, BTW?
19:03:01sideralI think the buggy code is definitely run after the DB update
19:03:18Slasheribecause that fix should only help if dircache is built foreground

19:13:15sideralSlasheri: BTW, it looks like with dircache compaction, my DB RAM usage is now larger than my dircache. This sheds a new light on the logic for buffer allocation for DB commit, which currently uses the dircache buffer on the assumption that it will be larger

19:40:44pamauryI think drivers are not consistent on this point
19:42:37wodzand another question - when handling OUT ep I know the expected len from SETUP stage. Now I accumulate data and at the end I should issue zero len packet and listen for answer. Is this correct?
19:42:56wodzor can I ignore the answer?

19:49:08bluebrotheris anyone still _actively_ using Cygwin to develop / build Rockbox?
19:49:37Buschel_bluebrother: well, not anymore but it worked 4 weeks ago ;)

19:51:58amiconnThis does require that a few parts of rockbox build properly, e.g. in order to create apps/features

19:52:50Tornebluebrother: the suggestion at devcon was to change how we do the whole vmware thing
19:53:00bluebrotherTorne: yes.
19:53:02TorneI have been intending to produce debian/ubuntu packages containing our toolchain/etc
19:53:06 Join B4gder [241] (~daniel@rockbox/developer/bagder)
19:53:10Tornejust not gotten around to it yet because of git migration
19:53:17Torneanyway i think we should probably do that first
19:53:24AlexPWe are overdue for a new image also
19:53:27Tornemake sure tha tit's reasonably easy to get a working vmware/virtualbox/etc environment
19:53:34AlexPFor Windows people
19:53:40Tornethen maybe we can discuss telling everyone that cygwin is deprecated
19:53:55TorneAlexP: well if we do it the other way around we can point at someone else's general ubuntu image
19:53:58Torneor whatever.
19:54:03bluebrotherwell, my idea was to have the website / wiki say something like "building on Cygwin is deprecated and might or might not work. We don't actively maintain it but happily accept patches"
19:54:16AlexPTorne: yes, that'd work
19:54:28Tornebluebrother: sure, but i still think we should maybe make sure we have a current and reasonably easy alternative first
19:54:33*Torne shrugs
19:55:50bluebrotherTorne: true, but would it make that much of a difference? AFAIU there aren't much users, and those people are likely to be able to fix smaller issues themselves.
19:56:20Tornei just think it'll cause complaints
19:56:22Tornei mean it will anyway
19:56:26Tornebut more complaints :)
19:56:45bluebrotherhmm. Not sure about that but you could be right :)

20:00:02bluebrotherhow hard would it be to build such an Ubuntu package to do the necessary things? I'm not an Ubuntu guy ...
20:02:12TorneNot particularly hard to do it in a kinda ugly way :)
20:02:22Buschelwouldn't it be sufficient to give all the details about required packages and how to install them? it's not that much
20:02:24TorneDoing it to inclusion-in-repository standards would be a huge pain

20:02:52 Join T44 [0] (
20:02:52Tornethe idea is we have a package that contains already-compiled binaries with the latest rockbox toolchains
20:03:01Tornewhich also depends on all the other packages required to build
20:03:13Buschelwell, calling the script to build the cross-compilers isn't that hard either
20:03:14Tornesuch that you just add an apt source and apt-get install rockbox-dev-environment
20:03:31TorneBuschel: you say that
20:03:49TorneThe thing is.. if it was that easy then nobody would expect us to provide a vmware image in the first place ;)
20:04:03*Torne shrugs
20:04:05BuschelTorne: well, for cygwin we force users to do so since we sitched to eabi
20:04:07*bluebrother guesses he could do something like that for Fedora ... no idea about Ubuntu though
20:04:17TorneBuschel: yes, and that made a lot of people kinda upset
20:04:39*Buschel remembers he was upset
20:04:40bluebrotherhmm, maybe I should give that a look? Or is Fedora that much out of discussion for users?
20:04:48Tornebluebrother: i doubt very many people care
20:04:53Buschel(because my notebook was sooo slow)
20:05:09bluebrotherBuschel: create new Cygwin packages then! ;-)
20:05:10Torneif i am sufficiently careful then I should be able to make a .deb that works on multiple debian and ubuntu releases without being rebuilt
20:05:47Buschelbluebrother: I dropped it and migrated to VM −− which is kindof Warp-drive compared to cygwin
20:05:54bluebrotherit's like ages since I built rpm packages though
20:05:55Torneit might even survive being turned into an rpm with alien
