00:08:35[Saint]copper: Rockbox has absolutely no concept of auto-kerning.
00:08:57[Saint]So, occasionally, some letters will look like complete ass.
00:09:38[Saint]There are a few params to pass to convttf to make the effect less obvious, but, its nothing that can be fixed 100%.

01:00:51wowanamesomeone in comments said; that must have been previously

12:26:09copperwoah, wtf
12:26:17copperthe radio disappeared from my Fuze+
12:26:55copperhmmm no
12:26:58copperI must be blind
12:27:12lebelliumthe radio chip burnt during the night
12:28:02bertrikcopper: the main menu is dynamic in the sense that it doesn't show the radio menu if the tuner is not found
12:28:25bertrikso perhaps there was some transient bug/problem causing tuner detection to fail
12:33:33copperit's gone again
12:35:02copperhow do I bring it back
12:35:41pamauryif it's not there is means there is a problem with the chip
12:36:10pamaurythe radio code has not changed in a long time so it's unlikely to be a bug
12:41:09bertrikpamaury: i2c could be in a confused state
12:41:24pamauryyeah but why now and not before ?
12:41:33bertrikdidn't you change the drive strength recently?
12:43:42copperit's a bug
12:44:47copperevery time I boot with the latest Fuze+ build, FM radio disappears
12:45:00copperevery time I boot with a backup build (f285 something), it's there
12:46:41copperf285a0 works
12:50:09[Saint]have you lodged that motherfudger in flyspray?
12:50:19[Saint]sounds like a very easy repro.
12:52:25pamaurybertrik: no
12:52:48pamauryI changed the driver strength of the sd, but it's not in the trunk and it's unrelated anyway
12:53:07pamaurycopper: can you bisect ?

13:19:08pamauryit works on mine, that must be a different problem, this commit is just unrelated
13:19:30copperI just tried again with the build before last commit

13:28:48[Saint](back it up, of course)
13:30:24[Saint]backing it up is good for two reasons, for you, obviously, and for anyone else looking into the bug in case it turns out its a particular setting at fault
13:35:28pamauryby the way, the whole storage idle thing seems just wrong
13:36:12bertrikpamaury: oh, by design, or by implementation?
13:36:21pamauryI don't know, both ?
13:37:09pamauryTake logdisk: you log things, buffer is not full, idle has been called. By implementation, next idle will be in 30 sec. Now shutdown, no storage idle called, you just lost your log
13:38:08copper[Saint]: indeed that works
13:38:24pamaurycopper: really ? that's strange
13:38:39copperI'm gonna re-do my configuration
13:39:53bertrikpamaury: I was under the impression that the idle callback is also done on shutdown
13:40:26bertrikI know it's not done for rolo
13:41:07pamauryI don't know, i'm trying to use logdisk to log performance counters and the result is just wrong, missing lots of events, especially in the end, whereas logf shows them

14:12:04copperwith c01a728, FM radio ALWAYS shows

14:42:29pamauryback from holydays ?
14:43:09jlbiasinipamaury: I got a sd card now so we can see if you can explay me how to update the f+
14:43:46jlbiasininot really, really getting into them actually. That means also some time more for rockbox
14:43:50pamaurysure, first plug your sd card into your compute
14:44:43pamaurydo you have parted, or gparted or partitionmanager ?
14:45:10jlbiasiniI already partition it in fstab
14:45:18pamauryok, run gparted and select your micro-sd card
14:45:25jlbiasiniI'm telling nosens
14:45:43jlbiasiniit's fat32 partitionned
14:45:59pamauryyou will need to modify the layout to have two partitions on your micro-sd card: one standard FAT and another one, don't care about the type and about 100MB in size
14:46:41jlbiasiniok go on describing for some reason I have to reboot to get my sd card read. But let me understand the whole process first
14:46:52jlbiasiniok I know how to do so

14:51:09pamaurycopper: it works half of the time ?
14:51:32pamauryI don't get how this is possible, it's completely unrelated !
14:51:40copperand since I completely wiped my /.rockbox directory, it can't be a theme or a configuration setting that's at fault
14:52:08pamauryI think we'll need to send you some patches to debug that
14:52:40jlbiasinipamaury: ok, done
14:52:41copperare you unable to reproduce it yourself?
14:52:47pamaurycopper: yes
14:53:05copperthough apparently we have two slightly different models
14:53:11pamauryjlbiasini: ok, now run fdisk on the micro-sd card as root: fdisk /dev/<block>
14:53:13pamaurycopper: do we ?
14:53:17copperdifferent displays
14:53:47pamauryah, yeah but the screen is the only difference as far as I know
14:53:49copperyou made a change that affected my Fuze+ but not yours
14:55:29jlbiasinipamaury: do I run it on the disk (like fdisk /dev/sdc) or on the small partition (like fdisk /dev/sdc1)
14:55:43pamaurythe whole disk (/dev/sdc)
14:55:48jlbiasiniok done
14:56:04pamaurypress "p" (for print) and pastebin the output so I can check
14:59:03pamaurygood, now we will change the partition id of /dev/sdc1 to 53: press "t" then "1"
14:59:09pamaurythen "53"
14:59:55pamaurypress "p" again and it should now show "53 OnTrack DM6 Aux3". If yes, press "w"

15:00:31 Quit soap (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
15:00:49pamauryFor the explaination: the bootloader will look for a partition of type "53" and consider its content as a plain sb file
15:01:03pamaury*freescale bootloader
15:01:16jlbiasiniah ok thanks
15:01:20pamauryso the next step is to get a bootloader image (take the one from the forum/wiki)
15:01:25pamauryand to write it to this partition
15:01:37jlbiasiniso now I have to dd a sb file to it wright?
15:01:39pamaurythere is a little catch though: it must not start at the beginning of the partition
15:01:51pamauryif must start at sector 4, so you dd this way:
15:02:22jlbiasiniwait I don't dd a modified sb?
15:02:23pamaurydd bs=512 seek=4 of=/dev/sdc1
15:02:43pamauryyou dd whatever sb you want, if you want rockbox you dd a modified bootloader of course
15:03:40pamauryprebuilt release candidate one:
15:03:58pamauryha damn, yes you are right, you must modify the bootloader too
15:04:07***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"

15:04:51jlbiasiniok what are the modification to do?
15:04:54pamauryok, build a normal bootloader but before, apply this "patch": in firmware/target/arm/imx233/sdmmc-imx233.c
15:05:22pamauryjust after "#ifdef SANSA_FUZEPLUS" there are two entries, one for "microSD" and one for "eMMC"

16:34:39pamaurymaybe tuner is still powering up and adding some code give it a little bit more time
16:35:28pamaurycan you remove the _logf line and check that the problem is back ?
16:38:08coppersure enough, it's back
16:38:33copperFM radio disappeared on first reboot
16:41:52pamaurycopper: ok, edit firmware/target/arm/imx233/sansa-fupluze/power-fuzeplus.c
16:42:10pamauryreplace "udelay(5);" by "sleep(1);"
16:44:25pamauryreally ?
16:44:40pamaurymaybe you need to add an include
16:45:22pamauryah :)
16:45:45copperworks consistently
16:45:52pamauryok, interesting. Actually I'm surprise by the udelay(5), I obviously wrote this code but this is a small value
16:46:13copperI don't even notice the sleep(1)
16:47:46pamauryudelay is in µs
16:48:02pamaurysleep(1) is 1 tick (10ms)
16:48:20pamauryI need to read the si4700 datasheet to check the powerup delay
16:49:04copperudelay(5) is 0.005 millisecond??
16:50:09pamaurynot a lot ^^
16:50:59copperany idea why bertrik's commit caused the problem?
16:51:12pamauryvery strange indeed

16:53:11pamauryjlbiasini: yes
16:57:50jlbiasinipamaury: so head + the patch I pastebin lead to the previously pastebin compilation error

19:56:47pamauryno idea, I think its Zagor who handles this
19:57:51pamauryor maybe petur
19:58:32madcat1990This one went to Bjorn Stenberg
19:58:34madcat1990does that help?

19:59:14gevaertsZagor handles this stuff
19:59:35gevaertsAnd yes, he is Björn Stenberg

20:20:22SovonHalderokay..I saw your last post on anythingbutipod

20:20:57copperjust keeeedding

20:22:13gevaertspamaury: which mail was that?
20:22:44pamauryI think DevCon2013: your action needed
20:22:51SovonHalderWell..don't get mad at me..just saying.. I don't think nobody personally likes to see the release year of the album after when they have to pause the song. why don't just add the year next to album title like (year)?
20:23:00SovonHalderin first braces
20:23:16pamauryHe can still host us though, maybe we need to say "up" :)
20:23:17copperbecause space is limited
20:23:19SovonHalderlike Under The Iron Sea (2009) are adding just after the album name
20:23:49SovonHalderin single line
20:24:02copperthat's already 7 more characters
20:24:19gevaertspamaury: the response was eight names on the list. I'm confused. Sure, we've had more in the past, but that's not *bad*, is it?
20:24:21copperit can be more if the file is tagged with a full date, like 2013-08-16
20:24:49copperI don't think it's a vital piece of information, and if people really want it, they can pause for a second
20:24:54SovonHalderdo you personally tag release year like that?
20:25:05copperbut it's a valid value
20:25:20coppersome people are OCD enough to tag the full release date
20:25:20pamaurygevaerts: I agree, maybe he just got the impression that nobody was interested
20:25:55copperSovonHalder: I appreciate suggestions, but really, I can't please everyone, and if you want it bad, you can just learn how to modify themes, it really isn't that complicated
20:26:13copperit's a lot easier to slightly modify a theme, than to design a whole theme from scratch
20:26:25SovonHalderadding the year next to the album title would be a fantastic idea according to a forum poll I did on our if you please..decision entirely rests upon you
20:27:32copperSovonHalder: we're arguing for nothing
20:27:44copperthat only affects the Fuze+
20:27:47SovonHalderthe addition of + sign when charging & FORMAT | Bitrate is a grand good idea by the way
20:27:55copperthe Classic theme always displays the release date
20:28:59SovonHalderI haven't tried them yet.. I thought a talk to you befor I do will be nice & I wanted to thank you for what you did...fantastic
20:29:42copperon the Classic, only the last line changes from "next song" to "codec" when pausing
20:31:03copperthat's because I'm able to display more lines on the Classic
20:31:22pamaurygevaerts: ok, should we just run a quick check and tell petur we are ok, no reason to loose more time. You are ok to come on september 14 ?
20:31:26SovonHalderare you a graphic designer of some sort?
20:31:33coppermost certainly not!
20:31:38copperI'm only able to copy stuff
20:31:43coppernot really create on my own
20:31:48gevaertspamaury: I am, yes. Nothing booked yet or anything, but I plan to be there
20:31:50SovonHalderwhere from do you come with such brilliant layouts then?
20:32:02coppercopying various designs's dangerously beautiful
20:32:27SovonHalderthank you
20:32:32coppermy main inspiration for the Googley themes is Google, as the name suggest
20:33:02SovonHalderare you done with the theme for now?
20:33:16copperpretty much
20:33:18pamaurygevaerts: he told me he may have a look if we tell him. Ok let's check the others: wodz, kugel, Zagor, AlexP, bluebrother
20:33:20SovonHalderYou haven't uploaded them on RockBox yet
20:33:28copperno because I'm waiting for some feedback
20:33:32copperin case I forgot something
20:33:38SovonHalderwill there be something different when you do?
20:33:47copperbut I don't really want to add anything else, because I don't want to clog the UI
20:34:10SovonHaldercan you give me the links for iPod Classic then please?
20:34:24copperit's in the forum post
20:34:40copperit's the Googley-Classic-* zip files
20:35:45copperalso you might want to get the font pack:
20:36:06copperand use one of those three fonts: 14-Nimbus, 19-Nimbus or 21-Adobe-Helvetica
20:36:23copperthe themes will load 14-Nimbus by default if it's present
20:42:39 Quit pretty_function (Remote host closed the connection)
20:47:23lebelliumSovonHalder: I always display album year in all my themes because I think it's an important info. So is file codec and bitrate. But everybody has different expectations so as a theme designer at some point you have to make choices based on something, usually based on your own tastes and needs. That's why copper's and my themes don't necessarily display the same information for example ;)
20:47:42lebelliumbut it should be easy to edit copper's theme and add %?iy<%(%iy%)|>
20:47:47lebelliumto get album year
20:47:50copperwhy is codec and bitrate important?
20:48:38copperwhat does it tell you?
20:49:42copper1) I already know how my music is encoded
20:49:55copper2) I'll play the file regardless
20:50:19 Join rdn [0] (
20:50:45lebelliumI don't understand why you ask that. I just said above we all have different needs so people can't expect a theme to be exactly as they wish unless they design it themselves as we both do
20:51:00copperI don't get what's the value of that information
20:51:11copperit's an honest question
20:52:01SovonHaldercopper: I have your previous Googley-Classic-Storm theme
20:52:09SovonHalderhow do I remove it ?
20:52:25copperjust overwrite
20:52:39SovonHalderI just installed Googley-Classic-Green
20:52:52SovonHalderI'll have that too
20:53:05copperload the theme and reboot
20:53:07lebelliumBecause not all my files are a ripped from my own CDs. When it's me it's encoded as MP3 VBR V0. When it's not from me I want to be able to check the codec and bitrate. It helps me to understand why that or that file sounds bad for example
20:53:19coppersometimes rockbox fails to load the backdrop
20:54:02copperlebellium: okay
20:54:22copperI've personally encoded all my files from flacs
20:54:24amayerSovonHalder: if you want to remove a theme you need to delete all the files that are in the the theme zip file
20:58:56copperdoes cabbie display the date and codec?
20:59:07lebelliumthat's why I make my own themes
20:59:17lebelliumIf I liked cabbiev2 I wouldn't
20:59:33copperneither do iPods I think
21:00:27lebelliumthat's why I like rockbox
21:00:50lebelliumbecause it gives me the opportunity to fix what's wrong to me in OF
21:03:39lebelliumthe fact that cabbiev2 and iPods don't display it is not a valid reason, we don't care about that. The only valid reason is that you don't need this information to display, and you are the theme designer and you do what you want with your themes ;)

21:09:08lebelliumhum I guess it shouldn't replace this file as copper's themes don't use this icons set. Looks strange to me

21:16:21gevaertsI do like "next track" lines though :)

21:46:12copperjust for the sake of making something different
21:46:40copperpeople can modify Googley if they feel up to it, it's really not that hard
21:46:49lebelliumI have no design ideas, that's why I chose to make only one theme and adapt it to all the targets :D
21:47:12coppertrying to design something different is where the fun is at!
21:47:19pamaurylol, that is a nice bug
21:47:35pamauryI knew I was right, I knew it
21:47:49lebelliumwhat bug are you talking about?
21:49:51copperlebellium: Rockbox desperately needs well designed themes. Samsung-like is one of the few that's functional and pretty to look at
21:49:57copperthe vast majority suck ass
21:50:51copperI'm still learning myself, the more advanced stuff
21:50:58pamaurylebellium: I a bug in our code, explains why our new logging mechanism doesn't work relialy
21:51:09copperthere's already a huge difference between Googley and my first theme, grayfog
21:51:46lebelliumAbout design I usually only like mines, yours and amayer's. I woudn't dare to say all others suck but kind of :P

21:53:40amayerlebellium: thank you. i havent designed any of my themes personally tho. i work with designers and i just code them.
21:53:53 Quit SovonHalder ()
21:54:13amayerI, like copper, have no creative ability to design themes from scratch
21:55:24lebelliumI don't either
21:55:33lebelliumthat's why it's called "samsung-like"
21:55:38madcat1990If I knew how to code
21:55:42madcat1990I would make a few
21:55:46madcat1990I've got so many ideas o-o

21:56:13amayermadcat1990: if you design them and have a similar target as someone im sure you can find someone to help you code the theme up
21:56:25lebelliummadcat1990: I can't code. Learning the theme language is easy for anyone, it's not like learning C/C++ (sorry gevaerts :P ) I assume :)
21:56:36madcat1990Who would care enough to do so, though?
21:56:49madcat1990Also, since my Clip+ has that memory thing, I'm kind of afraid to touch themes :S
21:56:51copperlebellium: that's why I called it "Googley"!
21:57:58amayermadcat1990: is the Clip+ the only device you have?
21:59:08madcat1990@ amayer I have an iMini2G with a broken audio port, Won't turn on...
21:59:28madcat1990Don't you guys have a theme emulator?
21:59:46lebelliumthere an UI simulator to help design themes
21:59:48amayeranyone can compile one
21:59:58amayerkeywork "Simulator"
22:00:04fs-bluebotBuild Server message: New build round started. Revision c13f21a, 217 builds, 21 clients.
22:00:58lebelliummadcat1990: look at here:">
22:01:46madcat1990an already compiled version for win32
22:01:48madcat1990I love you guys!
22:01:58copperawesome idea to make a simulator btw
22:02:38madcat1990Y'all got me sold
22:02:42madcat1990I'll work on a couple of themes
22:02:47madcat1990just gotta learn this WPS language thing
22:02:56lebelliumwithout the sim, there wouln't be many themes on the theme website I think ;)
22:03:09amayermadcat1990: ^
22:04:05madcat1990You got it
22:04:07amayerlebellium: i believe that too. i would hate to develop themes if i had to load them on my target to test theme somtimes ill make 5 changes to 1 viewport just to see if it looks better 2 pixles to the left or right
22:04:15madcat1990I'll try deving some for Clip_
22:04:30madcat1990if I make good ones, I'll make some for other devices, upon request.
22:04:49lebelliumamayer: exactly. But I assume the very first themes have been made like that! :P
22:05:40amayeri would end up with broken themes all over the place. a lot of the time i will get distracted and start working on something else
22:06:07fs-bluebotBuild Server message: Build round completed after 362 seconds.
22:06:38amayerquestion tho: why do backdrops fail to load?
22:07:06lebelliumwe can ask the same question for any other bug.... :)
22:07:54amayer*rubs chin* i guess so

22:36:09lorenzo92pamaury: I've read the new wiki for rescuing a sansa fuze plus...nice trick, but how can it actually work? is there the support for this built-in in the cpu firmware or so?
22:47:46pamauryI know it works, because it works :) It works because the fuze+ boots off an eeprom, so if you modify it you can boot from sd instead of internal storage
22:48:41pamaurybut the procedure is not trivial at all
22:50:12lorenzo92ah okay indeed :) I understand now, because I wanted to do the same on imx37 at a time but I didn't find any solution without still having to flash a tiny bootloader on the nand
22:50:31lorenzo92and yes flashing an eeprom without a raspberry or so ain't easy ^^
22:50:53lorenzo92...also if someone has succesfully used ext. monitor i2c interface to do so haha
22:57:58pamauryactually it's not a problem to flash the eeprom, you can do it from the imx233
22:58:04pamaurythe problem is that it is write protected

23:31:01fs-bluebotGerrit review #321 at : Cube plugin fix by Lorenzo Miori (changes/21/321/2)
23:31:31kugelthe real problem is related to the linker which seems to prefer libc's exit() over the one in plugin_crt0.c
23:31:45kugelbertrik: ^ too
