09:09:08wodzjnc: this can't be offending commit as it touches external tools not the firmware
09:10:41jncwodz: weird, but true
09:10:50wodz9cc0dab3ced1f0c9205f6cba4933096eca915157 is about elftosb utility which is used for imx233 only
09:11:03jncI'm thinking toolchain bug!
09:11:07jncI don't know.
09:11:59wodzmy bet is that you are doing something fundamentally bad when bisecting
09:12:09wodz*you do
09:12:15jncthat's really possible
09:13:32jnchow many trials should I run to be sure, of transferring data to trigger USB errors? I will do that now
09:14:49wodzbisecting is basically git bisect start, git bisect bad, git bisect good <some hash>, then You do make clean && make && make zip, unpack whole new package on target, do the test and finally mark the point in bisecting with git bisect good or git bisect bad
09:14:58jncah, yes
09:15:46jncI did 'make clean ; make reconf ; make && make zip' ; also used Sandisk firmware to format and transfer of unzipping
09:16:17jncso it is possible that my device is randomly crashing
09:17:11jncI have seen consistency though, like Release 3.8 will always work, and Release 3.12 will always fail
09:17:12wodzanyway you can start from scratch to confirm but 9cc0dab3ced1f0c9205f6cba4933096eca915157 definitely can't affect firmware
09:17:28jncare you very sure? because it appears that it does.
09:17:55jncreverting it in git master today, makes my firmware transfer no problems
09:18:05jncincredible as that sounds
09:18:51wodzlook, read the commit itself - it is about utils/sbtools/elftosb.c - this file is NOT compiled into firmware
09:19:22jncyes I understand that, and it is confusing to me ... so how do we rule out a toolchain problem?
09:19:24wodzIt should be easy - build firmware with and without this commit and compare
09:19:46jncah ok

10:37:12lorenzo92pamaury: well I will receive a YP-Z5 and so I wanted (don't have plans right now) to start working a little on it. One thing is clear: it has a display issue, hope it's only SW problem has it happens for this model :)
10:37:21lorenzo92it has stmp3650
10:39:36pamauryhum, stmp3650 is still a different device, it's not completely different from stmp3700 though but it's not clear if you can reuse some code. The datasheet is available but I don't know any linux port for it

10:41:09lorenzo92indeed there was an official port to it by sigmatel. website is down and no links anywhere, I only found Marc that has the packages, hope I can get them :)
10:42:26pamauryok, looking at the datasheet once again I think it's possible to make the stmp36xx a subtarget of the imx233 port. Many function blocks are the same with small variations or less functionalities.

10:44:53lorenzo92I still have no idea atm, I will did into that, but yes there are .sb files!
10:45:01lorenzo92also the stmp35xx had them
10:45:04lorenzo92100% sure

10:46:34pamauryI reverse engineered a little bit of it but right now I have no time to work on anything, I'm very busy with some work
10:47:26pamaurylorenzo92: iirc, the stmp35xx uses a completely different format and it's not even arm based
10:47:54wodz35xx is dsp based no?
10:48:16lorenzo92uhm okay
10:48:27lorenzo92we have an update

10:55:29wodzpamaury: I am not 100% sure but it may
10:56:40lorenzo92pamaury: could be there some keys to protect bootloader? hope not...
10:57:29pamauryno it's a different issue: some field encoding the header size doesn't have the expected value. It could mean the format is slightly different and/or that my tool should handle non-standard values
10:58:15lorenzo92if i'm correct imx233 = stmp37xx right?
10:59:16pamaurystricly speaking imx233=stmp3780 but as rockbox is concerned, we will make the imx233 port more general because the differents aren't that big

13:30:54lorenzo92something interesting then?
13:31:25lorenzo92I have also a crappy old 256 mib player with stmp35xx :D
13:34:36pamauryI've had a quick look at the sb file. the format of the header is rather obvious. However the content seems encrypted or scrambled. I'll try a few things on it but without the BSP it will hard or impossible
13:37:36soapscorche`, you mentioned that you had a backup. To prevent issues reconciling couldn't you just open the forums read-only while investigating upgrade options?
13:39:58lorenzo92pamaury: in the meantime I've sent samsung a request of sources for the Z5 in the opensource website, I doubt they will consider my request but who knows :)
13:40:31pamauryis it linux based ? is there any reason for them to accept ?
13:41:06lorenzo92this is the point, I don't know if it's linux based at all hum hum dunno
13:41:33lorenzo92and well they released the device drivers for R0 (modules) ...
13:41:41lorenzo92after my request :)
13:47:08pamaurylorenzo92: I'm not a 100% sure but given the datasheet, the stmp3600 doesn't have any crypto hardware so the bootloader probably doesn't implement a complicated encryption scheme. On the stmp35xx it was a simple shift to scramble so here it might be sometimes like a xor but I doubt it's aes or someting similar
13:54:32lorenzo92yes xor was in my mind also
13:56:29pamauryi'm thinking about a 32-bit xor with a table, something like: data[i] ^= xor_table[i % m] but that's just a guess, i'm giving it a small try before going back to work
13:57:54pamauryThe datasheet suggest there are commands: load a binary blob, load from peripheral, branch. It's not clear if these are encrypted or not

16:34:01AlexPsure :)
16:35:47soapscorche`, I'm not familiar with the forum software - ie will setting the DB read-only make every action error out. The message that nobody has write abilities temporary could be put in the same flashing banner space as all that other messages (like the "thanks for donations" and "sorry about the spam".
16:36:04scorche`people actually read that stuff?
16:36:28scorche`and yeah - many DB errors is generally not very user-friendly
16:37:53soapthen allow full writing to the temp. clone but change the background to a disclaimer statement. Hard to miss that.
16:38:33soapMy concern, and maybe it's not a shared concern (as in maybe soap is overly worried) is that the forum downtime presents an image problem.
16:41:16scorche`my concern is that an image problem is made worse by DB or permission errors without a proper notice on that message - OR making them writable and blowing away the last day or so of posts is a worse image problem than putting the forums in maintenance mode with a nice message
16:41:20*scorche` heads to work

20:45:18phiiiHey everybody. I can't solve the following self-caused problem: I wanted to install Rockbox via MacOsX installer, it went fine but I noticed that the mount directory of the player (Sansa Clip Zip) was not correct. In fact it was set to / (root) of the computer. The installer ran and said everything went fine, I found a clpza.bin file in my root dir (which probably should be on the player), but the Sansa player now shows a green freeze screen and doesn't mount

20:47:16AlexPphiii: Don't know I'm afraid, if you installed the patched firmware to / then Rockbox isn't installed at this point
20:47:53phiiiAlexP: Yes, that's what I think as well. Do you happen to know if the Rockbox installer deletes previous firmware before copying the Rockbox one?
20:48:13AlexPNo, it doesn't work like that
20:48:40AlexPWe patch the firmware and put it on disk, then the next time you boot the player the Sansa firmware notices the file and uses it to update the firmware
20:49:20phiiiOkay, so since no Rockbox firmware was copied there should be actually nothing changed on the Sansa player?
20:49:47AlexPWell, that's the bootloader

20:52:41AlexPNo problem, although it is a bit weird
20:53:05phiiiThe .bin file in my root directory basically proves that I have chosen the wrong installation path, right?
20:54:01phiiiwhich proves that there should be nothing changed on the player.
20:54:31AlexPIt's hard for me to say for sure :)

22:22:36wodzWhat you mean? You experience delay to start playback or playback is choppy?
22:24:33BelzebubYa, playback is choppy
22:24:39SuperBrainAKhigh processor usage? i know under the codec page it says some codecs requre more processor
22:24:51wodzflack is not cpu intensive

22:27:36Belzebubthis is a example file
22:27:58wodz192kHz sampling rate is the key here I guess
22:28:03gevaertsRight. That being problematic doesn't surprise me too much
22:28:38wodzoh and s32le sampling format although this should have smaller impact

22:31:18Belzebubwodz: If I change hdd to ssd, problem probably fixed?
22:31:58linuxstbBelzebub: Rockbox will (poorly) resample to 44.1KHz during playback, so you may as well resample yourself.
22:32:41gevaertsMy bet is that you're asking too much from the CPU.
22:33:03wodzgevaerts: or disk rather
22:33:15*gevaerts doesn't think so
22:33:34*wodz seeks for data

22:35:09wodzgevaerts: yeah I confused kbit vs kbytes - disk should be fast enough
22:36:02gevaertsGoing to 192kHz means four and a half times more samples to decode, which will I suspect scale linearly, so you have 137%, before even adding the 32 bit samples
22:36:18redsteakrawAnyone else exited about the new opus codec?
22:37:06gevaertsI have *no* idea how much that adds, but it won't be zero, and you need some CPU for non-decoding stuff too
22:37:39wodzand resampling, no?
22:38:36AlexPredsteakraw: Not really :)
22:40:07 Quit SuperBrainAK (Ping timeout: 244 seconds)
22:42:46redsteakrawWhy not it is only the best lossy codec with low latency and is an IETF standard so it will be showing up in web browsers(already in firefox) and it is open source / non patent encumbered. AlexP
22:43:01 Quit nateloaf (Quit: Leaving.)
22:43:20AlexPBecause bugger all else will support it, and mp3 in higher bitrates (disk space is cheap) is just fine
22:43:45AlexPCar stereos for one example
22:45:17redsteakrawCar systems are implementing more and more comunication devices into them and as such will lead to opus support, anyways I just fill up my music player with a playlist and podcast and go on the road with my sansa Clip Zip
22:46:08AlexPI'd rather just use something that is fine and is supported by everything everywhere
22:46:19redsteakrawI can't relly on car steros to have any smarts to me they are dumb boxes that should just except a line in for my actual device.
22:47:09redsteakrawWell when every browser can open it, and most media players there really isn't going to be a problem opening or playing it.
22:47:33wodzsure just like with .ogg :-)
22:48:05redsteakrawmicrosoft through skype took part in the making of it.
22:48:06 Quit y4n (Quit: Assumption is the mother of all fuckups)
22:48:33redsteakrawXiph and Broadcom
22:48:41wodzand and?
22:48:53AlexPYeah, I meant and so what
22:48:56AlexPNot who else
22:49:06redsteakrawI think Mozilla funded some development
22:49:55AlexPI don't care who funded it, and if people want to use it then great. I'm just not excited about yet another poorly supported codec, even if it's design is superior
22:50:11AlexPIf I'm wrong and it becomes widely used then great
22:50:15AlexPI just don't expect it
22:51:17 Quit melmothX (Quit: bau)
22:51:32redsteakrawthe Web RTC standard is the most likely avenue most software will pick it up
22:51:51AlexPI'm believe that once I see it
22:54:02redsteakrawRight now firefox and vlc support it, Gstreamer I think supports it as well. It is going to be the default codec in both Skype and Mumble.(no suprise there)
22:55:37 Quit Buglouse (Ping timeout: 244 seconds)
22:56:45AlexPMany codecs are standardised, many codecs are supported by vlc, many codecs are used by practically nobody
22:57:01AlexPThis isn't really a topic for here by the way, more for #rockbox-community
22:57:07wodzredsteakraw: the real breakthrough will be ability to purchase music in this format which is unlikely
22:57:57wodzanyway we have opus support, probably as the first in portable music player segment so whats the fuss?

22:58:07redsteakrawI personally just buy music in FLAC
22:58:18alcorHi everybody !
22:58:18AlexPyeah, I'm glad we have it, I'm not having a go at opus
22:59:14redsteakrawit is just an opusenc away, I recoment 64kbs to 90 for decent quality

22:59:45alcorquestion .... some files on database ... its like doesnt work fine ... how can I remove thouse ..
23:00:09AlexPI don't understand "its like doesnt work fine"
23:00:35AlexPIf you want to exclude certain directories from the database you can put a database.ignore file in it
23:00:37copperone problem with Opus is that it resamples 44.1kHz audio to 48kHz, which has to be resampled back to 44.1 by Rockbox
23:00:38alcorstart playing and sudenly ... skip to next song ...
23:01:35AlexPI think we have a UI way of selecting what is scanned to the db now too, although I don't know if it is fine grained enough for indiviual songs or just directoires
23:01:45AlexPcopper: Yeah, and our resampler is not great
23:03:00alcorhave a lot of files on DB that fail .. like start playing and then skip
23:03:12AlexPThat isn't db related
23:03:28AlexPAn example of a problem track would be useful

23:03:47alcoryou mean the format ??
23:03:56AlexPno, an actual track
23:04:13copperan actual file
23:04:14redsteakrawI have to thank the guys that ported doom to rockbox it runs great on my clipzip
23:04:55AlexPalcor: You could try encoding some random noise the same way as you encoded the problem track, if it also skips let us have the track
23:05:39copperdevelopers should benefit from a fair use clause in copyright law
23:05:58alcorOk .. now I get you .. the files were in the Ipod classic before I install rockbox .. I didnt copy them ..
23:06:03copperI mean it would be nice if they did
23:06:05AlexPcopper: It's so bloody complicated depnding on where you live tec.
23:06:27alcori Live in Argentiona :D
23:10:14copperalcor: did you use the Rockbox installer when you installed Rockbox?
23:13:35alcorsure ... do I reinstall??
23:13:54copperok then you don't have an iPod Classic
23:14:04coppermaybe an iPod Video
23:15:30alcormine is and old one 30G ..
23:15:45alcorall black
23:16:08copperhow did those files get there?
23:16:18copperdid you transfer them to the iPod via iTunes?
23:19:28alcormmm think so .. the ipod was of a friend ... :$ I know ... this issues with this descriptions ... you want to answer .. Hey dude .. how do you want me to help yyou ?? hhahahaa
