00:42:55linuxstbcopper: That's not trivial, as Rockbox assumes extensions don't contain a dot. i.e. it searches from the end of the string, finds the first dot, and everything after that is the extension.
00:43:20saratogai tried hacking together clip+ radio lock screen
00:43:22coppersurely you can make an exception

01:16:26saratogagot it
01:16:43saratogathis patch changes rockbox-info to print the hash of the origin/master
01:17:46saratogaperhaps I don't understand, but this is more useful then knowing the hash of the builder's local git repo right?
01:18:24JdGordonI'd print both
01:18:48saratogasince if they have local commits the hash is basically meaningless to others
01:22:57saratoganeed to ask Torne since i'm clueless
01:48:57 Join webguest75 [0] (
01:49:39saratogaJdGordon: how does Version:(master) local[M]-date sound?
01:50:14JdGordonYou'd probably need to make sure rbutil doesnt parse it before touching it
01:50:35webguest75Would it be possible to create an Everyday Looper-type app for Rockbox?
01:50:58JdGordonalso, I've make Version: in that text file match what is in the rockbox info screen... maybe just add a new line for upstream hash
01:51:07JdGordonwebguest75: ?
01:51:29[Saint]time machine...duh.
01:52:10[Saint]Every day loops, like groundhog day.
01:52:35saratogaJdGordon: well I tried for a while but couldn't figure out how to make bash do that
01:52:46 Quit lebellium (Quit: ChatZilla 0.9.89 [Firefox 17.0/20121113065533])
01:53:31webguest75Sorry, shoulda clarified it. I meant a plugin that could take input from the microphone and loop/overdub on loops, like the iPhone/iPod application "Everyday Looper"
01:54:00saratogai think i'd actually have to make a whole new bash script to do that, since the "Version:" is printed in perl, while the number is formatted in bash
01:56:30[Saint]webguest75: it'd likely only be the hosted targets that could handle such a plugin, and the host OS probably has a better alternative.
01:58:02webguest75So there wouldn't be any way to just temporarily cache mp3 audio on-the-fly and create overdubs?
01:58:15saratogaPCM audio maybe
01:58:20saratogadepending what an overdub is
01:58:37webguest75Thanks, it basically means you hear a new pass-over the last audio track
01:58:52saratogawhat does that mean?
01:58:54webguest75Two tracks at the same time, etc.
01:59:08saratogaso you want to load two tracks and play them at once?
01:59:26webguest75Right, though they're created live
01:59:42webguest75As soon as you finish recording the first track, you hit stop and it repeats
02:01:00webguest75Ideally you could create a temp directory to save files, but have them delete after you exit
02:02:24saratogastorage speed might be a problem, but you probably could do that
02:02:47saratogaalthough i don't think you'd be able to play it back in real time
02:03:17[Saint]kinda defeats the purpose :)
02:03:55webguest75Yeah, you'd kinda need that feature for it to work - Everyday Looper is the closest example of what I mean, though it wouldn't need to be that complicated
02:04:22saratogawhats the difference between ` and " strings in bash?
02:06:06[Saint]As I said earlier when I put my speculation hat on, the targets that have the guts to do this on run Rockbox as a hosted application instead of an OS replacement and /probably/ already have a solution.
02:07:22[Saint]That type of application is asking a fair bit from a DAP with such limited resources.
02:08:30[Saint]...perhaps the Nano2G or the Beast or Classic could do it. Dunno.
02:08:34***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
02:09:09webguest75Alright, I'll try that then, thanks :)
02:09:56webguest75I was thinking about something as primitive as a Sansa Clip, but that would probably be impossible
02:12:05[Saint]The Clip is actually kinda snappy (and isn't hampered by a large spinning disk), but I'm not overly confident it'd be able to do this in realtime.
02:12:54webguest75Would the designated format really make a difference in terms of write speed or not?
02:16:12saratogais the clip even capable of playing back and recording at the same time?
02:16:38saratogaseems like something an mp3 player wouldn't ever need to do
02:17:38webguest75You're right, it wouldn't, but there wouldn't be a way to rewrite that?
02:18:15[Saint]Not trivially.
02:18:31saratogacan't rewrite hardware
02:18:39saratogaunless you're going to pay a lot to get the new design fabbed
02:19:04webguest75Yikes, doesn't sound like something I could work around
02:19:33saratogaso when i call this sh script it gives me the git hash
02:19:42webguest75Thanks for the help.
02:19:57saratogabut when i do print `../tools/` in a perl script it just gives me the first character of the hash
02:20:32[Saint]'cos, perl.

02:31:43saratogai have no idea if its ok or even makes sense, but it seems like it'd be useful
02:38:17saratogaactually, is origin/master the current state of the rockbox repo?
02:38:22saratogaif so I guess that doesn't work either

15:06:05lebelliumwodz: my clip zip works fine :) I tried it for another user. I already replied him some minutes ago and he read my posts. So I don't know if he already removed Rockbox yet or not

16:30:39Tornethat's not how you override the menu
16:32:01Tornei forget what order it gets included in
16:32:03Torneone sec
16:32:42copperfirst block is used, supposedly
16:32:53copperand tagnavi_custom.config is loaded before the main menu definition
16:33:03Tornethe usual way to do it is to use a different name for th emenu
16:33:14Torneand set %root_menu to something else
16:33:22Tornenot to redefine the menus that are already defined
16:33:22Tornecall it my_main or something
16:34:58Tornedoes it actually say anywhere that the first definition of a menu is the one that takes effect?
16:35:04Torneit says the first root menu declaration takes effect.
16:36:14Tornethe docs for the database stuff are all pretty wonky and hard to follow
16:38:01copperdoesn't work
16:38:26 Part LinusN
16:39:17Torneby doesn't work you mean the entire menu is completely unchanged?
16:39:31Tornehave you tried changing it to something completely different?
16:39:37Tornei.e. different menu options, not jsut different sorting
16:40:04copperI don't see my menu at all
16:40:04Tornealso, what are you doing to get it to notice?
16:40:06copperI changed the name and label
16:40:15copperI unplugged from USB and rebooted
16:40:41copperI also selected "update database"
16:41:18Torneyou don't need to update the database (the stored data is in the same format no matter what)
16:41:23Tornebut yeah, it needs a reboot i think
16:41:23Torneanyway. it works for me :)
16:41:32Tornenot your config specifically, but i do have a custom tagnavi on mine
16:41:40Tornei don't have it handy
16:41:45Torneso can't give you an example, sorry
16:41:51copperwas gonna ask you to pastebin it :)
16:42:23Torneyeah i don't actually carry my ipod most of the time any more :)
16:42:23Torneonly on long trips
16:42:23Torneso it's at home
16:44:04Torneanyway. you can also just edit the main tagnavi config as long as you are careful not to overwrite it when you upgrade rockbox
16:44:09Tornethe wya the overrides work is fiddly and i don't remember exactly what you have to do :/
16:45:26copperjust did that, worked :)
16:45:45Torneyah, so it's a problem with how you are overriding the menus
16:45:49copperkept a copy on my HDD for future upgrades
16:46:21Torneanyway. as far as the docs suggest and i remember, you should be able to define whatever you want in the custom tagnavi, with different names to the usual ones
16:46:27copperoddly enough, I just plugged and unplugged the iPod maybe 5 times in a row, and it didn't even freeze or crash ;)
16:46:28Torneand then also replace the root menu with %root_menu

23:39:51xenyzgevaerts: so from what i gather it was suggested here but has been rejected :(
23:41:02*gevaerts is of the opinion that if an artist or band decides to have "The" as part of their name, he isn't going to overrule them :)
23:41:25lorenzo92pamaury: uh! you mean? that's also a nice thing hehe
23:41:55xenyzI just think it's easier to find the band if they're sorted the other way, but I see what you mean
23:42:16lorenzo92pamaury: I will work again on Z5Update.dat as soon as possible...and player will arrive soon xD
23:42:22xenyzI'm trying to remember how the iPod does it, I think they keep the 'The' but sort it where it would go without the 'The'
23:42:52gevaertsSo what do they do with other languages?
23:43:15gevaertsI think the consensus is that we could accept a patch that adds this, *if* it's properly configurable
23:43:16xenyzI'm only familiar with the english interface
23:43:38gevaertsWell, band names are not related to the UI language, to complicate things :)
23:44:16xenyzExactly, I went into the database options hoping for a switch like 'Sort Artists starting with The'
23:44:27AlexPxenyz: Or Das, or ...
23:44:45gevaertsTechnically if you have, say, a German artist and an English artist, you can *not* sort them :)
23:45:04gevaerts(because neither German nor English sort order is appropriate for both)
23:45:05AlexPI prefer The to be ignored for sorting, but hate it when it still displays The XXx instaed of XXX, The
23:45:14AlexPI find it impossible to find stuff like that
23:45:24xenyzI guess it would be like a database setting, where you choose the Collation
23:45:35AlexPWhat about the filebrowser?
23:45:58xenyzWell you couldn't rename the files in the filebrowser, it'd just be for the database
23:46:14AlexPWell, you could, but I agree with you :)
23:46:24 Join brkfstsqd [0] (
23:46:25xenyzI agree the artist is "The XXX" not "XXX, The", but finding it should be under X, not T
23:46:25 Join breakfastsquid [0] (
23:46:42AlexPNo, i want XXX, The if the The is ignored
23:46:44Tornethe right way to do this is using sort tags, not having a configurable set of strings
23:46:54Tornewe would love patches to do sort tag support :)
23:46:59AlexPI find The XXX sorted under XX to be impossible to find
23:47:05AlexPTorne: Yep
23:47:08xenyzBut the player should display the artist as "The XXX"
23:47:08 Quit Horscht (Quit: Verlassend)
23:47:16Tornethen this choice of what to display is easy
23:47:19AlexPAs Torne says, sort tags exist
23:47:25AlexPWe just don't support them
23:47:25Torneyou can separately choose to sort by or display the regular/sort tags
23:47:34Torneso you an sort under The or under Who, and see The Who or Who, The
23:47:37Torneas you choose
23:47:41Torneit just needs implementing :)
23:47:52xenyzHmm so it depends on tags on the files?
23:47:54TorneAlso, sort tags work correctly for, say, "The The"
23:48:02Torneor other bands with hilarious names
23:48:35AlexPxenyz: yes, if done correctly
23:48:37xenyzBut "The The" would show up under T anyway :)
23:48:38Tornexenyz: there are defined alternate tag properties for artist/album/etc that allow for the name to be present in catalog sort form as well as normal form, yes
23:48:56Torneall my music has these tags because picard does it for you :)
23:49:27xenyzHmm I'll have to check it out, but for all the music not tagged like that it'd be useful to have the player do the sort
23:49:46AlexPOnly for English
23:49:49Tornethat's super coplicated and hard to do correctly
23:49:52xenyzOtherwise a good 20-30% of artists in the list are going to be clumped together under T
23:50:10AlexPWe support many languages, all need to be catered for
23:50:18xenyzYes it would have to be an option you choose to use, not the default behaviour
23:50:29Tornee.g. please sort "Die Krupps" and "Die Screaming" successfully :)
23:50:30AlexPand work for all languages
23:50:33TorneNo, you can't do it with a single option
23:50:45Tornebecause music is named in more than one language regardless of the language of the speaker :)
23:50:50AlexPTorne: I think he is still ignoring everything except The in English
23:50:57Torne"Die Krupps" sorts as "Krupps, Die"
23:50:59Tornebecause yaknow
23:51:02Tornethat's what it means in german :)
23:51:05xenyz"Sort Artists with The" Yes/No
23:51:19AlexPAs has been said many times...
23:51:22AlexPOther languages
23:51:37xenyzYes you could have additional options "Sort Artists with Die" Yes/No
23:51:37Tornei expect die krupps to be under K
23:51:47Tornebut i expect things that are using the english word "die" to be under D
23:51:53TorneYou cannot do this by matching text :)
23:51:59AlexPxenyz: But Die is also english
23:52:22Tornealso there are a *lot* of words that mean "the"
23:52:30Torneif you consider, like, twenty or thirty languages
23:52:33Torneand different genders/etc
23:52:37xenyzIf my main langage is english, i wouldn't be using the Die sort, and vice-versa for German I'd think
23:52:41Tornewhy not?
23:52:47Tornei speak german
23:52:53Tornei know what die krupps's name means
23:53:11xenyzAre a good 20-30% of band's names "Die somethng" in German?
23:53:23Torneor der something, or das something :)
23:53:31AlexPNo idea, but German isn't the only concern
23:53:36AlexPThere are lots of languages
23:53:38xenyzSo that sort would be useful for someone with a german music collection, no?
23:53:54AlexPWe don't want 30 options, a lot of which won't be right
23:53:55xenyzIf 30% of your music was showing up under D, etc
23:54:27AlexPUnless you happen to have e.g. a band starting with Die in English too
23:54:46xenyzI just think Apple got this one right, at least when it's set to English , to sort the artists by the second word if the first is "The"
23:54:59AlexPThat's because they ignore everyone else
23:55:07*gevaerts prefers his view that you can't sort if you have more than one language in the list, so you should always shuffle
23:55:12xenyzIn fact the majority of indexes put the on the end
23:55:23gevaertsThey're all wrongf
23:55:23xenyzput the 'the' on the end..
23:55:32xenyzThey're all right :)
23:55:38gevaertsSeriously. That English-centrism is *very* insulting
23:55:57xenyzBut it would only be when your language is set to English
23:56:14xenyzJust lie the iPod, I'm assuming
23:56:25gevaerts*your* language and the language of the text in the list are totally unrelated
23:57:02AlexPI dislike things making stupid wrong assumptions for me, and then forcing them on me. This is what Apple excel at
23:57:13xenyzI'm just saying that if my player is set to english language, it would be useful to have an option to be able to sort the artists names 'properly' in the usual english-language method
23:57:34Torneyes, and we said that a way to do this that would work all the time for everyone would be to support sort tags properly
23:57:39xenyzIf it doesn't work out for other languages, the option is there to not use :)
23:57:50AlexPThe option is to make it work for everyone
23:57:51Torneif people do't care to tag their music collections properly then we don't care very much to display them i teh order they want
23:58:09Torneadding code for special cases when there is a *better* way that works for the general case is not generally a good idea
23:58:24xenyzI suppose.
23:58:31Tornealso, Apple use the sort tag
23:58:44xenyzRe-tagging an entire collection of music so your player sorts it properly is the other way to see it
23:58:47Tornethey may *also* have a heuristic that guesses that "the" is special, if the tag isn't there, i don't know
23:58:55Tornebut if you have sort tags, then itunes and the ipod sort by that order :)
23:59:00Torneincluding putting Die Krupps under K
