#rockbox log for 2013-03-05

00:00:10[Saint]...doesn't come close.
00:00:28corona_ok why?
00:01:05[Saint]Is it not obvious? The level of configuration that VLC offers - when compared to Rockbox - is essentially non-existent.
00:01:31 Quit Rondom (Quit: No Ping reply in 180 seconds.)
00:01:55[Saint]No audio player software for DAPs and mobile devices does.
00:04:25[Saint]Rockbox has the most extensive feature set and configuration options I have ever encountered. Not to mention the skin engine...nothing I know of comes close to that.
00:05:38[Saint]The main difference I see between Rockbox and <insert_other_software_here> is that Rockbox offers the user the ability to change the look and feel of...well....everything.
00:05:57[Saint]*almost everything
00:07:35corona_its like saying developing rockbox for ios
00:07:54 Join Rondom [0] (
00:08:21[Saint]bah, caps.
00:09:31[Saint]"[12:07:37] <corona_> its like saying developing rockbox for ios" <−− could you try rephrasing this please? It makes no sense to me.
00:10:48*TheSeven accuses [Saint] of looking at the keyboard while typing
00:11:09corona_making a app for ios just like the android one
00:11:34TheSevenif apple wouldn't be quite as restrictive, someone would probably have done that already
00:11:36Tornewhat would be weird about that?
00:12:03[Saint]TheSeven: Indeed - coupled with the fact that this keyboard has no visual indicator (LED, etc.) for the caps or num lock :)
00:12:17Torneyes, it could be distributed as an app for jailbroken phones
00:12:22[Saint]Nothing is stopping you from doing so - go for it.
00:12:24Tornenobody has done it
00:13:07Torne[Saint]: i would say the skinning in rockbox is the least interesting thing about it on android
00:13:17Tornein fact, the way we do the UI is the reason i don't use rockbox on android :)
00:13:28Torneif it used ugly boring stadnard android list widgets i'd use it immediately
00:13:36Tornethe playback engine is the part taht's nice, not the UI :)
00:13:47[Saint]If more of our developers used iOS based devices, I'm sure it would've happened already. But, nothing is stopping anyone else from doing so.

00:32:21*[Saint] is working on user-configurable stepping for the EQ
00:32:38[Saint] you think there's any hope for this - assuming it's well done?
00:34:44[Saint]What I mean is being able to configure the stepping (possibly separate values for gain, precut and q) for gain, precut, and q from 0.1db - NdB

00:35:56kugel[Saint]: I don't think so. it smells like "configure how you configure something" which we generally don't like
00:36:59kugelAlso, IMO, it's not worth the effort and/or binsize
00:37:36*[Saint] is reminded that he wants to unify the values offered for a LOT of settings.
00:38:13[Saint]For example: Some settings have 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ... - other have 1, 5, 10, 15, etc

00:49:37JdGordon[Saint]: yeah, sounds a bit pointless... hoeveer if you want to try making the stepping logic more sensible that wouold be good
00:50:44[Saint]What I want to get to the bottom of - but haven't looked to hard at - is the EQ_*_FAST_STEP values
00:50:49[Saint]and when they are used.
00:51:41[Saint]I only have scrollwheel based targets to test on really - and it seems that scrolling isn't counted as a button repeat, which is what I guess triggers the fast step.
00:53:21JdGordonare you talking about in the graphical eq or the menu?
00:54:13[Saint]The menus - iiuc - should have their own list acceleration logic.
00:54:31[Saint]...but, possibly only for touchscreen?
00:55:03[Saint]At least, that's the only place I have actually seen the acceleration configure options.

01:13:10corona_how do i make my icons in color they are all white
01:14:26[Saint]corona_: what theme are you using?
01:15:16[Saint]It sounds like you applied the "rockbox default icons" config from Settings - Theme Settings - Browse Theme Files
01:15:49[Saint]Just re-apply <whatever_theme_you_are_using>
01:16:05[Saint]...from the menu listed above
01:17:14corona_yea all my icons are just white and they dont change when i reapply a theme
01:18:04[Saint]That means that <whatever_theme_you're_using> isn't setting its own icons.
01:18:19[Saint]Apple cabbiev2, and then apply the theme you want.
01:18:28corona_u mean apply?
01:18:31[Saint]Derp. s/Apple/Apply/
01:19:02*[Saint] got bitten by autocomplete on his phone
01:19:56corona_no cabbiev2 is being retarded
01:20:12corona_its not even cabbiev2
01:20:21[Saint]CabbieV2 definitely sets the icons to the Tango! icon set. Apply cabbieV2, and then apply whatever theme you're wanting to use afterward.
01:20:26corona_it has this blue background
01:20:33corona_its wierd
01:20:47[Saint]you applied "rockbox_failsafe"
01:22:12[Saint]Aha! It seems you'll need to be using a current build for cabbieV2 to apply the Tango! iconset.
01:22:46[Saint]"Make Cabbiev2 enable icons when selected "
01:23:00corona_but i am i just reinstalled rockbox
01:23:21[Saint]Oh....hum, weird.
01:23:36[Saint]Applying CabbieV2 should definitely set the icons correctly.
01:23:55[Saint]where "correctly" == "Tango! iconset"
01:24:05corona_i got white icons after first reboot :-(
01:24:30corona_i installed all themes so maybe?
01:24:43[Saint]maybe what?
01:24:59[Saint]The amount of themes you hav e installed is irrelevant.
01:25:03corona_i know
01:25:23corona_time to restore via itunes and try again :-)
01:25:24[Saint]Then I'm doubly confused by that statement.
01:25:34[Saint]WHat? No. That's just silly.
01:25:38[Saint]There's no need for that.
01:25:46corona_cant do any harm
01:26:01[Saint]...but, it's entirely useless.
01:26:25[Saint]All you need to do to achieve exactly the same effect (rather, the effect you want) is remove config.cfg
01:26:49corona_i cant find it unfourtunally :-(
01:26:51[Saint]Restoring via iTunes is *waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay* over the top for this.

01:27:41[Saint]it's hidden by default on unixlike systems
01:28:01corona_wish i known dat before
01:28:01[Saint]Also, you'll need to restore for a Windows system.
01:28:07[Saint]Rockbos doesn't do macpods.
01:29:34[Saint]Better I told you before you started, I guess. Otherwise you'd have the installer tell you that you have a macpod, as opposed to a winpod, and tell you to restore from a Windows machine.
01:30:36corona_what about a linuxpod?
01:30:49[Saint]There's no such thing.
01:30:56corona_oh no there is

01:31:56corona_calm down
01:34:43[Saint]Well, I apologize. Since I don't have the benefit of being psychic, it seemed like a wildly incorrect statement. ;)
01:34:44corona_btw what does the rockbox video player support "as in codecs"
01:35:03[Saint]Our fine manual tells you this.
01:35:56[Saint]The video needs to be sized for the player also. It isn't resized dynamically.

11:42:26copperwhy does the Rockbox themes website reject archives that contain fonts?
11:42:44JdGordononly fonts in the fontzip
11:42:47copperthey take very little space and it ensures that the theme will display correctly even if the user didn't install the font pack
11:42:50JdGordonbecause wasting bandwidth sucks
11:43:29copperthey take 64 KiB in my theme
11:43:51JdGordonmultiply that by the number of themes on the server * downloads
11:43:53copper8 KiB zipped
11:44:26copperif you're worried about bandwidth, you should implement PNG support
11:44:43copperit's the damn bitmaps that take up 95% of the space
11:44:53copperif not more
11:45:22Tornealso the fonts have, occasionally, been updated
11:45:25JdGordonwe really should enalble jpeg images in the wps, yes
11:45:51copperwhy jpg
11:45:54copperwhy not PNG
11:46:00JdGordonbecause we already support jpg
11:46:09copperah yes of course
11:46:11Tornethere's already a jpeg decoder in core
11:46:15Torneso, it's less work ;)
11:48:07[Saint]copper: the issue is simple - you include fonts A, B and C from the font pack in your theme - we update the fonts in the source - a user them installs your theme, and ends up downgrading fonts A, B, and C unknowingly.
11:48:14copperthe .bmp files take up 200 KiB zipped
11:48:19copperthe rest takes up 4 KiB
11:49:05[Saint]The size is largely irrelevant - the point is, it is wasted bandwidth.
11:49:17[Saint]Just tell the user that they need to install the font pack in the theme description.
11:49:20copperwhat is this, 1995?
11:49:31*[Saint] dislikes the attitude
11:49:42coppersorry but that bandwidth argument is silly
11:49:55[Saint]It's not an arbitrary reason, the fact that you don't agree with the reason is...well...I couldn;t care less.
11:50:11[Saint]It is what it is, and you've been told why.
11:51:11copper<[Saint]> Just tell the user that they need to install the font pack in the theme description.
11:51:14copperyeah, did that
11:51:25[Saint]Sweet - Job done.
11:51:55copperbut you can't use that argument with a straight face :P
11:52:10copperyou had me at the updating argument
11:52:11pixelmato me, the version argument weighs more than the bandwidth one and it's quite important even if it didn't happen often
11:52:29pixelmathat fonts were updated
11:53:01*[Saint] nods
11:53:16[Saint]...bandwidth is still an issue, albeit a minor one.
11:53:54[Saint]But, yes, the larger issue is the fact that the author may not notice a given font updates, and then the user ends up with older fonts than they think they have.
11:54:55sargsomebody familiar with arm assembler, please take a look at this code
11:55:05[Saint]We should /probably/ include magic that checks the md5 sum of the fonts against those in HEAD to prevent authors renaming fonts to get around this restriction
11:55:15*[Saint] prods amayer
11:55:15copperyour bandwidth issues are 100 times bigger with the distribution of your source archive
11:55:41[Saint]do we even distribute a source snapshot anymore?
11:55:52[Saint]I thought that stopped /ages/ ago.
11:56:27copperI'm sorry
11:56:29coppermy mistake
11:56:42copperyour bandwidth issue with the source archive is 4224 times bugger
11:57:00pixelmathey are also on different servers (themes. and download.)
11:57:17copperseriously though
11:57:23coppereh, forget it
11:57:56[Saint]seriously though - "just don't do it, for the reasons stated above"
11:58:05[Saint]It's really not up for debate :)
11:58:59pixelmawhere do you get the number from? Would you know how much space the how many... 1000? themes would have with the included fonts of their choice (could be a few, could be large ones - anti-aliased and with a big character set)
11:59:17copperI said forget it
12:01:56[Saint]Hmmm...what the?
12:02:20*[Saint] wonders how he managed to tab-complete amayer when he's not even present
12:03:15[Saint]Odd. Well, I hope he reads logs. He seems to be quite fond of the theme site.
12:03:41copperone small pet peeve I have against it, is that there are no permalinks to the themes
12:03:50copperthe URL changes when I update a theme
12:04:02copperso I set up a redirect on my server
12:04:09[Saint]IIRC, this is one of the (many) things amayer is working on.
12:05:01copperthere's also a repeated PHP error
12:05:20[Saint]...and that's another one of them :)
12:05:30[Saint]amayer has taken the theme site under his wing.
12:06:09copper<copper> Notice: Undefined index: extension in /home/themes/private/themesite.class.php on line 973
12:06:22[Saint]It is being worked on, but - free time, real life, etc.
12:06:33copperkay kay
12:06:52copperyou might want to not print error on the production website
12:07:06copperjust log them
12:10:35copper[Saint]: also, why aren't fonts installed by default? Also bandwidth considerations?
12:12:05[Saint]Only the font(s) required by the default theme are shipped.
12:12:06copperis the server's bandwidth metered, or just limited in throughput?
12:12:45copper(or both)
12:13:15[Saint]In the not so distant past, Rockbox shipped with several themes included, so there were more fonts included in the .zip, but those themes have since been transferred to the themesite so now only the font(s) required by CabbieV2 are present.
12:13:40pixelmajust a n additional thought, the bandwidth issue could also be on the downloader's side
12:14:09[Saint]copper: neither - I believe.
12:14:28funmansarg: what is your question?
12:14:46copperI'd like to know how many people have trouble downloading 3.3 MiB
12:14:59sargfunman: i tried to inject this code, and bricked my device
12:15:14sargso, the question is, may this code cause infinite loop ?
12:15:32[Saint]The server has a fat pipe, and unlimited (or basically unlimited) traffic. But, keeping the images as small as possible, with the least number of superfluous files, is just plain common sense.
12:15:37***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
12:15:42Tornecopper: maybe we can put this another way: many users never, ever change theme, or look at the themesite, or use any other font :)
12:15:53funmansarg: code is loaded at which address?
12:16:17copperI just don't really get where this conservatism comes from
12:16:23Tornecopper: or another: the build changes frequently, but the fonts rarely do, packaging them separately means people don't download the same data over and over
12:16:50Torneit also would take more time for the buildbots to upload the zip to the build master if it had the fonts in
12:17:24Tornewe're turning hundreds of builds around in six minutes
12:17:43[Saint]There's also game files (doom wad(s)), dict index files, and so on, and so forth - forcing these on a user that may not ever use them for the sake of those who do is...well, a crappy thing to do.
12:17:54sargfunman: it is injected at the end of dram init procedure of rk3066 SoC, i don't know load address, but think it does not matter as it is called by relative offset
12:18:08[Saint]Those that *do* want them, can easily download them.
12:18:36copper[Saint]: IIRC the Classic build includes a fuckton of plugins
12:18:50Tornethe plugins have to be compiled to match the binary
12:18:54Torneso, we distrubite them with the binary
12:18:58Tornethe data files we're talking about don't
12:19:05funmansarg: well unless memcpy overwrites itself :)
12:20:08copperthe plugins take up 1.5 MiB zipped
12:20:35sargfunman: what will happen if I LDR from wrong (unmapped) address?
12:20:48funmansarg: data abort i guess
12:21:57[Saint]Plugins are included, as Torne mentioned - to avoid version mismatch.
12:22:17Tornealso, some of hte plugins are fairly important
12:22:24Tornecredits, battery_bench, etc
12:22:32Torneso even if we did split some off we would want some included
12:22:53funmanalthough perhaps a package of optional plugins would make sense
12:23:02Tornefunman: doesn't seem worth it
12:23:37[Saint]It would make a lot of situations where users have plugin pack X, and binary Y, and don't understand why plugin Z no longer functions.
12:24:09Torneyeah, if some plugins were separate and others weren't then people would likely not remember to update the optinal ones
12:24:28[Saint]RbUtil could take care of this, but that would rely on everyone actually using it.

17:31:13n1skly: sounds to me like the connection to the disk isn't working right
17:31:35n1sperhaps reseating it could help

17:40:44Tornere-seating - removing and reinserting the connector to ensure it's plugged in properly
17:40:58klytried 10 time
17:43:14[Saint]There's also the possibility that it's just "f*cked ™" as well.
17:43:32klybut can't stand why
17:44:23[Saint]It is highly possibly that you damaged either the HDD, or the PCB, when you opened the device.
17:44:55[Saint]These things are only reasonably rugged when fully assembled.
17:45:20[Saint]When partially disassembled, they'll break if you look at them the wrong way ;)

17:46:21klyperhaps .. but it's strange i break nothing
17:47:20[Saint]The cables are *incredibly* fragile...and it can be very hard to spot a break in the traces there.
17:47:51[Saint]I'm also guessing you weren't grounded, so static discharge is also a possibility.
17:48:05klyyes .. :'(
17:49:37klyi guess something, i maybe pull of the cable battery when the ipod was turned on, this could damage it ?
17:51:39[Saint]It's /possible/...I guess. But I would doubt that to be the cause.
17:52:41 Join djp_ [0] (djp@fsf/member/djp-)
17:52:54[Saint]My guesses would be, in order of likeliness: 1 - broken cable trace; 2 - Accidentally bridging something on the PCB; 3 - Static discharge killing something
17:54:24[Saint]That is, of course, if you are absolutely sure the HDD, and the ZIF cable to it (at both ends), is properly seated and all flaps are down.
17:54:41klyyes ..
17:55:02klybut, the HDD, make some sound when it is connected, so it's not the HDD + cable
17:56:21klybut i've got 1 connection that i don't understand the utility, it's near the battery to under the screen
17:56:40klyif i plug it in or out, nothing changes
17:58:26[Saint]There are many traces that could be broken in the HDD cable.
17:58:43[Saint]The fact that it spins up doesn't necessarily mean a data trace isn't broken.
