I get this message "There are differences between boot sector and its backup." some differences and three options. 1) Copy original to backup2) Copy backup to original3) No action I gather 2 is the option to take.

05:19:40jhMikeSHe's hiding in his castle with the crenelated embattlements.
05:19:41[Saint]*date related
05:23:13[Saint]Aha... jhMikeS, just the man.
05:24:18[Saint]Did you, or did you not, implement the base for the keyclick/beep magic to output more than just clicls/beeps, or did I imagine this?

05:30:48jhMikeSit's all pretty superficial. no engine to do it exists at the moment.
05:32:27JdGordon[Saint]: ?
05:34:26***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
05:41:14[Saint]JdGordon: apparently date tags (or at the least %ca) borks scrolling now.
05:41:21[Saint]Is this known to you?
05:42:23[Saint]I wasn't sure if the date was classed as "dynamic content" (though I guess it technically is) or not. It definitely *used* to work.
05:43:50[Saint]When I say "now", its not necessarily a recent breakage at could have happened any time in the last two years. :-S
05:50:26[Saint]jhMikeS: the conversation that made me remember that work was almost pure silliness (adding realistic wobble/scratch effects to a record player theme gevaerts was thinking about), but it also made me thing that (especially for RaaA) being able to fire arbitrary sound effects from a theme would be pure awesome.
05:50:41[Saint]A theme could include its own (optional) soundscape then.
05:51:11[Saint]*made me think that
05:52:45[Saint]So, I wanted to question whether or not it was something that actually had some guts in place in the core, something that *could* have some guts in place in the core, or something you dreamt up but never actually got any further with.
05:54:00jhMikeSwhat format to use?
05:56:54[Saint]My assumption was that it could in theory use any of the supported codecs, but, the cheaper the codec the better one would guess.
05:57:14[Saint]If it caused an obvious stutter it wouldn't be very nice.
05:58:52jhMikeSspeex would suck for that, a cheap codec good, but needs to work when music is playing too
06:01:42[Saint]I imagine some of the lesser targets would struggle trying to play two audio streams if it was already playing a "heavy" codec.
06:01:57[Saint]that would be non-nice.
06:02:06jhMikeSindeed. in the worst case, it's three audio streams if voice is going too
06:03:51[Saint]Aha...right, I forget about voice.
06:11:16JdGordon[Saint]: err... date tags should absolutly be working with scrolling... there was a bug which made me fix that
06:11:25JdGordondoes any other dynamic content break scrolling?
06:11:54[Saint]I'll test when I get back in an hour or so.
06:12:33[Saint]I tested with %s%ca-string_that_made_it_long_enough_to_push_outside_the_viewport, and nothing.

06:38:09KiwiCamfunman: I'm getting this fsck.ext2: invalid option −− 'w' I see no w option in the Man pages. So this works "sudo fsck.vfat -wy /dev/sdg" (it's /dev/sdg now) and I get this "dosfsck 3.0.9, 31 Jan 2010, FAT32, LFN/FOUND.000 Contains a free cluster (52724). Assuming EOF.Unable to create unique name" Rather than continue to try recover it, can I just reformat? If so, what's the best way?
06:47:35[Saint]KiwiCam: why are you using fsck.ext2 on a FAT filesystem, may I ask?
06:49:32[Saint]And, yes, you're quite right. It *should* spit an error about the -w flag, as fsck.ext* has no idea what this flag is.
06:49:44 Join Rob2223 [0] (
06:49:48[Saint]fsck.vfat however...
06:52:52 Quit Rob2222 (Ping timeout: 272 seconds)
06:53:59KiwiCam[Saint]: I'm not. It's formatted Fat32
06:54:27[Saint]so why were you trying fsck.ext*?
06:55:15[Saint]you want "mkdosfs -F 32 -I /dev/sd<foo>" btw.
06:55:27[Saint](to format the filesystem as FAT32 in Linux)
06:55:56[Saint]this may or may not involve installing the dosfstools package.
06:56:19[Saint](depending on whether or not your distro includes it)
06:56:32KiwiCamDisk Utility says that it's FAT. fdisk -l is reporting it as Unknown
06:57:12[Saint]that still doesn't answer my question as to why you were trying to use fsck.ext*
06:57:41[Saint]I find it pretty hard to believe that fsck.vfat spat an error that fsck.ext* doesn't support -w
06:57:45KiwiCamI didn't I did "sudo fsck -wy /dev/sdg"
06:58:16[Saint]Aha, right.
06:58:26[Saint]So, anyway...yeah. Don't do that ;)
06:59:00KiwiCamI might as well wipe it if I can. mkdosfs....
06:59:03[Saint]If you really don't care about recovery, and just want to format the thing, the command I listed above will do it.
06:59:21KiwiCamThere's nothing on there that I'll be missing.
06:59:35[Saint]If it bitches about dosfstools being missing, feed it "apt-get install dosfstools"
06:59:46KiwiCamWill do. Thanks.
07:02:29[Saint]There's almost certainly some GUI tool included that will "just work", but, ...meh.
07:11:58KiwiCamI'm comfortable with CLI as long as I have an idea as to what I'm about to do. So, I did an apt-get (it's there) , ran the command, Mount error. Unmounted it, ran it again. Removed it from the USB cable and it "scanning disk". If I reconnect the cable it just goes to scanning disk again.

07:23:34KiwiCamOK. Will do.
07:24:33[Saint]when you say "So I unmounted...", what exactly did you do here?
07:24:51[Saint]As far as I can see the system isn't aware of any such device on /sdg
07:25:57[Saint]"umount /dev/sdg/ && mkdosfs -F 32 -I /dev/sdg" should've done it, unless I'm in braindead land.
07:27:00KiwiCamThe unmount Icon in Nautulis. What's the key press combo to stop this thing from going into "scanning disk" every time I turn it on?
07:27:19[Saint]There isn't one.
07:27:22KiwiCamGot it
07:27:36KiwiCamHome and Power On did the trick.

09:46:39KiwiCamDaily Build is on the Clip.
09:46:57bluebrotherthere's a known and already fixed issue
09:47:33bluebrotherdepending on the git hash Rockbox Utility can fail to dxtract the correct string
09:48:11bluebrothereither install a different version and thy to get one with a hash that doesn't trigger the problem
09:48:30bluebrotheror simply install manually :)
09:49:18bluebrotheryou ca also try Rockbox Utility from git, but I haven't made binaries for that yet
09:52:54KiwiCamI've already put back my themes and the fontpack and the sounds. I'm happy and good to go. Thanks everyone for your help. I'm sure I'll be back for more.
10:02:30[Saint]The new Nano refuses to charge with an official Apple branded firewire charger and cable.
10:03:10[Saint]It doesn't even acknowledge that anything is inserted in the dock connector.
10:07:00[Saint]Yet, if I use a generic firewire wall-wart, it charges fine.
10:07:26[Saint]...seems weird to deliberately exclude your own charger with your detection magic.
10:07:56[Saint](even if it is a LOT older than the device its charging and practically a forgotten format)
10:08:41[Saint]Hmmm...Nano5G won't charge with the firewire charger either.
10:24:42KiwiCamArrrr. Now the thing won't connect via USB. Just starts Rockbox. However, if I start the Sansa firmware, and then plug it in, it connects to the pc. I can sync music to it via gPodder. If I plugged the USB cable in when it's off, it just goes to the RB File Menu. Plugging it in while using RB, the screen goes dark, but it stays in RB mode.

13:34:36***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
13:34:50JdGordonI can only asssume git-svn did some wierdness because something that obvious should not have been commited unless I knew it was working
13:34:54JdGordonanyway, whatever
13:35:13JdGordongevaerts: hwat do you tinhk about a tag to get a random value?
13:35:55gevaertsJdGordon: I'm not against it, but it needs some thinking. When should the value change?
13:36:42JdGordonyeah, it could be static and then with a bit of magic you could have it change every second
13:36:51JdGordonor just chuck in a timeout value
13:37:32gevaertsThe one case I know of where it was wanted is lebellium's theme, where it should change per track
13:38:17*gevaerts will have a go at making %ss work from the right side later
13:38:34JdGordonthat should be dead simple
13:38:49*gevaerts nods
13:38:56lebelliumhello guys
13:39:07gevaertsFor the random tag, maybe a thread in feature ideas to collect use cases?
13:39:12lebelliumI was about to ask lorenzo to compile a build with the random value patch :)
13:40:03lebelliumand I see you're talking about that
13:41:47gevaertsThe problem with a static is that it won't work really nicely if you use more of them
13:42:49JdGordongevaerts: well each individual tag is a different value
13:42:59gevaertsAh, indeed
13:44:38gevaertsWhen do SKIN_REFRESH_STATIC tags refresh?
13:45:17JdGordonif the subline changes, and on track change
13:45:24JdGordonor when the viewport becomes visible
13:46:31gevaertsOK, so for lebellium's case SKIN_REFRESH_STATIC would work, except it would also change when leaving/entering the wps, but I'd say that's minor
13:48:15JdGordonno it wont
13:48:22JdGordonit will keep the value it gets when it starts
13:48:31JdGordonoh, you mean wps->menu>wps?
13:48:52JdGordonthast a feature :)
13:51:11gevaertsSo the question is, do people also want a DYNAMIC random, and if so, is it doable/easy to do that with a parameter or does it need a separate tag?
13:51:29JdGordonthe other thing I've been working on is g#191
13:51:30fs-bluebotGerrit review #191 at,191 : skin_engine: Use a smart consistant skin refresh rate for all screens by Jonathan Gordon (changes/91/191/1)
13:51:39JdGordonsome opinions on that wouldd be nice

13:54:15gevaertsJdGordon: does g#191 still take peak meters into account?
13:54:16fs-bluebotGerrit review #191 at,191 : skin_engine: Use a smart consistant skin refresh rate for all screens by Jonathan Gordon (changes/91/191/1)
13:56:46 Quit Topy44 (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
13:57:50JdGordongevaerts: i tinhk so
13:58:23gevaertsIt looks fairly straightforward to me, and it seems like a good idea
13:58:50gevaertsThe hypothetical skinning guide should probably warn about refreshing too often on menu screens though
13:59:57JdGordoni did a batt bench *ages* ago and there was no realworld difference between 25Hz and 0Hz updates
14:00:10JdGordonit was after the major rework though
14:02:41gevaertsI very vaguely remember doing a battery bench in early 2008 on c200 where I noticed a significant difference between menu screen and the then default wps (with peakmeters)
14:03:18gevaertsWe don't refresh the screen when backlight is off now though I think on that player, but on mono screens it may still be noticeable
14:03:26gevaertsSo "needs retesting" :)
14:03:56JdGordonand that is probably when the skin was being parsed at refresh time
14:04:15*gevaerts nods
14:21:03*JdGordon wonders if anyone else thinks it is stupid the default viewport ignores the statusbar setting in the wps
14:21:20JdGordoni.e its at (0,0) when it should be at (0,8) if the inbuilt bar is enabled

14:50:58dfkt_is the supported "ipod video" the one that's usually sold on ebay as "ipod classic 5th gen"?
14:53:25gevaertsI wouldn't bet on "ipod classic 5th gen" always meaning the same thing, to be honest
14:53:44dfkt_yes, it seems people have different opinions on version names
14:54:13gevaerts5th gen non-nano is the video. The problem is that classic strictly speaking is explicitely *not* the video
14:54:54dfkt_yes, the ones apple explicitely calls "classic" seem to be the ones after the ipod video
14:55:03*gevaerts nods
14:55:31lebelliumJdGordon: the random value tags seems to work. I tried that %?xx<%xd(Aa)|%xd(Ab)|%xd(Ac)|%xd(Ad)|%xd(Ae)> but actually that's not what I wanted to do hehe. That changes the pic unceasingly while I want it just to change when it skips to next track

15:02:46JdGordonI want to flush it out first :)
15:02:59JdGordonI want to make sure i get what I think are best practices in :D
15:03:24JdGordonThis is the sort of document whihc we should do, seperate to the manual (or as a proper appendix/chapter)
15:04:05[Saint]Oh, right, so you don't want me tainting it with my horrible coding style, huh? :p
15:05:53gevaertslebellium: look for DYNAMIC in that patch, and replace it with STATIC, and it will work for you. The exact syntax (and tag name) may still change though

15:08:13lebelliumgevaerts: ok I'll see if lorenzo is willing to compile a new build again for me. Otherwise I'll wait for the final version of this patch
15:08:54gevaertslebellium: just set up a build environment and be done with it!
15:10:19[Saint]Amen. It'll take ~30 mins.
15:10:49[Saint]Then you'll never have to cry to anyone to patch and compile you a binary ever again.
15:12:09lebelliumas I already told JdGorgon, I don't have time and knowledges for that. Moreover I use win 7, not linux.
15:12:50gevaertsIt's not exactly hard. You need to look up 4 commands I think
15:12:52[Saint]*cough* Wubi *cough*
15:13:09gevaertsAnd download a VM image if you don't feel like setting up things yourself
15:14:19[Saint]If you were particularly willing to kick your own could even use CygWin.

15:15:51lebelliumI only use nice interface-based Windows programs. Hate cmd. And don't want to use linux :D
15:16:43[Saint]Well, then, continue to rely on others for binaries...then. (but, its a sad state of affairs)
15:17:58[Saint]Considering how easy it is to set up a development environment, and how insanely easy it is to set up a VM or loopback filesystem image (ala Wubi), it really is a shame you're so against doing this for yourself.
15:20:10[Saint]In all honesty, writing a theme for Rockbox is more time and effort (and requires more knowledge) than compiling Rockbox.
15:21:37[Saint]The wiki outlines exactly what one needs to do to a ridiculous extent, its pretty much "download a few things, then c/p a couple of lines". With a decent connection you can have it done in 30 mins without having to understand anything you're actually doing. :)
