00:32:10pamauryI managed to replicate the "black screen of death" fairly consistently and I am narrowing down the issue
00:32:18pamauryit is clearly a lcd driver issue
00:33:58pamauryI *think* it may be related to DMA: I reset the LCDIF dma channel *before* ungating it's clock, which looks like a bad idea

01:16:17[Saint]If someone's gettin' happy on bar draw direction for touchscreen, I'm pretty sure RTL bars are still using LTF touch gestures.
01:16:39[Saint](rather similar to the verticalbar stuff I saw mentioned earlier)
01:21:25[Saint]Very odd to see someone so happy about giving up a Rockboxed device with some of the cleanest audio output possible for...a nasty little gimmicky touchscreen cube.

01:42:23[Saint]As well as being hard to follow.
01:42:59[Saint]But there's some bloody odd formatting allowed in there that I never bothered learning and I'm not sure whats allowed and what isn;t anymore.
01:43:01kugelyea, it's not supposed to work, and it didn't in my recent tests
01:43:43[Saint]JdGordon made some form of indented flow for themes I could never follow.

01:49:04toehser1Any tips on throwing rockbox source into an IDE to help my brain navigate it - useful experience on, say, whether to use code::blocks or eclipse-CDT or something else, if anyone has already reverse-engineered project files, or anything else to make such a crutch easier to get building?

01:56:47JdGordon[Saint]: I did what?
01:57:49[Saint]You came up with some indented flow for theme files I'm not sure is documented anywhere.
01:58:12toehser1Once I understand the code, that is fine - it is the source-navigation while I'm trying to figure it out (easy 'goto-declaration' or 'show-references' kind of stuff). I'll check the forum thread.
01:58:23JdGordondidnt i just allow it tp skip whitespace in tag params?
01:59:32[Saint]I think you could also arbirarily sprinkle newlines around willy nilly too. :)

11:10:40pixelmait is (though I don't remember using it, maybe something I tried out). IIRC that's supposed to be an offset from the right side of the screen or so
11:11:54[Saint]negative offsets should be legal for anything that wants an x,y

11:15:51pixelmaas I said that .wps is more like a playground one, just things to try. I didn't have a good grasp of what I wanted for my phone's theme yet though that slowly builds up in my head currently. The second problem is motivation because RaaA doesn't work very reliable for me especially when running in the background and then going back
11:16:27kugelpixelma: that only works for viewports
11:16:33kugelnot for any other tag
11:17:45pixelmaneed to go back and see what I did there, maybe it's a mistake
11:17:58pixelmaor workaround
11:19:24kugel[Saint]: perhaps it might be handy but it's not handled like that in the code so we should better reject it now (and reserve it for future use this way)
11:19:30pixelmaah hmm, I wanted to suppress the outline of the drawn progress bar there
11:20:05kugelwhich outline? the border?
11:20:30kugeli see
11:21:35pixelmamore like "hide it", would be nicer probably if the drawn bar could have an option to be shown borderless?
11:21:50kugelcould add a noborder param for this, in line with the nofill one

11:49:21kugelyes, wait for a fix
11:49:32kugelI'm working on it
11:50:09kugelin the meantime, IIUC, it should be less likely to happen with a smaller font
11:50:47SovonHalderfor now, is there any older version of rockbox which I can use till the fixed version of rockbox is released ?
11:51:13[Saint]We understand it is frustrating, but you are using an unreleased, experimental firmware, targeted at developers.
11:51:21[Saint]bugs are expected.
11:51:51kugelit doesnt appear on the daily build page but changing the url seems to yield something
11:52:04SovonHalderI don't complain..I never guys are GODs of coding..that's perfectly fine with me..

13:01:05copperkugel: nope, "very latest" is the one I built
13:01:36kugeljust saying, I committed a freeze fix a few minutes ago
13:02:18SovonHalderI don't know what is wrong with me. And I understand it's getting very annoying to you guys for me being here but I can't find iPod classic or iPod 6g on this page:
13:02:21copperCurrent branch master is up to date.
13:02:24copperthat's what I built
13:02:37copperpamaury: nothing special, and I reset the config
13:03:35kugelSovonHalder: sorry, I thought it would be there. where did you get your preious builds from?
13:04:05 Quit AndChat|694784 (Quit: Bye)
13:04:53kugelSovonHalder: I mean before I showed you the daily build page
13:05:09kugelanyway, the current build is here (the link points always to the latest)
13:06:30kugelgevaerts: do you know why the 6g isnt on the current/daily build pages?
13:07:51SovonHalderthe latest version available on that page has this revision number: 0a0d61e-140112
13:09:19SovonHalderthis version has that bug
13:09:24SovonHalderbut the revision which was built less than an hour ago is of version no this: 6e882b4 −− it isn't available on the daily build page of the iPod Classic 6G.
13:09:46kugelthe daily build for today is already built
13:10:00kugelthe next one will appear there tomorrow
13:10:09kugeluse the zip I just linked to
13:10:20kugelthat points to the current dev built
13:10:23SovonHalderI downloaded it..
13:10:39SovonHalderit is the 0a0d61e-140112
13:10:47SovonHaldernot 6e882b4
13:11:17kugeldownload, I verified its 6e882b4
13:12:05SovonHalder1 sec
13:14:00SovonHalderyeah it's 6e882b4
13:14:51SovonHalderis this okay if I completely delete the .rockbox folder from ipod & copy the new one ?
13:14:58SovonHalderinstead of overwriting files
13:15:04kugelyes but it's not necessary
13:15:18SovonHalderthere are lots of files like database_0.tcd etc.. which was not there before
13:15:56kugelright, rockbox creates a handful of files, such as configuration files, the database, some persistent caches
13:16:25kugelbut you generally do not need to delete those before upgrading
13:19:24SovonHalderI updated
13:19:29kugelpixelma: I suspect you don't want a bg colored border, but no boarder at all right?
13:20:06SovonHalderit still freezes.sorry...
13:21:15copperSovonHalder: don't use my Googley themes with the latest build
13:21:31copperuse cabbiev2 for now, until the bugs get fixed and I update my themes
13:22:36copperthe Googley themes that you have a not compatible with the latest builds
13:22:54SovonHaldercabbiv2 is also freezing
13:25:20kugeli cannot reproduce freezing anymore
13:25:34kugelis it freezing in lists or on the wps?
13:26:28SovonHalderin the file list or database access on track list
13:27:09SovonHalderI moved back to 31st December 2013 version
13:27:52SovonHalderCopper: can you please link me to the modified googly classic theme where it shows next track instead of codec ?
13:28:01kugelSovonHalder: did you delete everything or not?
13:28:11kugelbefore upgrad
13:28:56SovonHalderI didn't delete anything
13:29:10SovonHalderI said yes to the permision of overwriting files
13:29:39kugelhm, can you try again with deleting everything?
13:29:53kugelI'm unable reproduce the freeze
13:30:31SovonHalderI can but I am woreied..I've reset my iPod about 100 times since last night.seriously..
13:30:48SovonHalderis this gonna cause any permanent damage ?
13:32:19 Quit mortalis (Read error: Operation timed out)
13:32:47kugelSovonHalder: instead of deleting everything just rename the .rockbox dir before upgrade
13:32:52copperkugel: freezing on my Classic in the WPS while playing music
13:33:27copperwith HEAD
13:34:30copperfreezed again while browsing files
13:34:46kugelwith cabbie?
13:34:52copperactually it's not so much a freeze, as the controls that become unresponsive
13:35:10coppermusic keeps playing, and the display times out as normal
13:35:21copperbut the scroll wheel is unresponsive
13:35:30SovonHaldermusic keeps playing
13:35:40SovonHaldercontrol is interrupted
13:35:48copperand I have to reset the iPod with menu+select
13:35:54kugelthat's bit is kind of important guys :)
13:36:06copperkugel: yes, I figured :)
13:37:05SovonHaldercopper: I'll be using your theme..if you don't update your themes, I won't update rockbox..
13:37:20kugelcopper: lines keep scrolling too or not?
13:37:32SovonHalder it's from your last mail to's dead
13:38:51copperkugel: no scrolling and no artwork
13:39:03coppermusic keeps playing, display dims out
13:39:28kugeldoes the display go back on if you press a button?
13:39:32coppernothing gets updated on the display
13:39:49copperdisplay goes back on if I touch the scroll wheel
13:39:55copperbut doesn't get updated
13:40:13kugelbut there are lines long enough to scroll right?
13:40:29kugelcan you try to see if it also happens on your fuze+?
13:40:30 Join benedikt93 [0] (~benedikt9@unaffiliated/benedikt93)
13:40:33copperhmmm now the display won't go back on
13:40:57copperactually the display is on but not the backlight
13:41:39copperand the display won't turn off now
13:41:46copperdisplay stays on and backlight stays off
13:42:57kugelcopper: I don't have 6g, so either I can reproduce it on the sim (no luck yet) or on a different device; or you have to bisect for me :)
13:43:28copperdoesn't happen on the Fuze+, but the Fuze+ is currently fucked up on it own
13:46:47copperbisecting on the actual device would be quite cumbersome
13:47:09copperand I confirm that neither problems (on the Classic, and on the Fuze+) show in the sims
13:48:20copperkugel pamaury: can you guys reproduce the graphics corruptions on the Fuze+
13:48:52kugelmy fuzev2 does fine it seems
13:49:14kugelI don't own a fuze+
13:49:17coppershould I try the Clip+ too?
13:49:58copperyeah I'm gonna try HEAD on the Clip+
13:53:23copperno problem whatsoever on the Clip+
13:54:07kugeli guess ipod6g and fuze+ are not stable targets for a reason, although I do have no idea what could be causing the freeze

13:59:43copperI guess I'm going to have to bisect them both
14:00:29SovonHalderis there any way I can download a 2 month older version of rockbox daily builds for iPod Clasic 6g ?
14:03:37kugelyou can build it yourself, though
14:03:46SovonHalderhow ?
14:04:59kugelyou should be running linux
14:08:22pamaurykugel: I haven't tried yet, I'm busy with something else at the moment
14:08:53kugelpamaury: ?
14:10:18pamaurysorry, copper
14:10:54pamauryok, downloading HEAD...
14:14:34pamaurycopper: how am I supposed to trigger the bug ?
14:17:50copperplay something in the WPS, go back to the SBS (and vice versa)

14:20:39PurlingNayukiJdGordon: Finished initializer today and am working on a menu following eq_menu.c.
14:25:20copperpamaury: bisecting the Fuze+ now, starting from 00b3fd2, which is confirmed good
14:26:06pamauryok thanks
14:28:30copperit's going to take a bit longer since I'll have to test every build on the actual device
14:29:44kugelcopper: litte trick: do only "make bin" and copy "rockbox.sansa", that should make it a quicker process
14:30:10pamaurydefinitely, I was about to say it: only rebuild the main binary
14:31:10pamaurydon't forgot to copy it to <path to root>/.rockbox/rockbox.sansa
14:31:15pamauryand not at the root of the device ;)
14:31:44pamaurysounds stupid but I've done it ^^
14:31:48 Join Bagder [241] (~daniel@rockbox/developer/bagder)
14:34:01copperthanks for the tip
14:34:37copperyou're absolutely sure that the bugs couldn't be caused by something other than the main rockbox.sansa file though?
14:35:14pamauryI think that's a safe assumption in this context yes
14:35:22kugelthe revision you're starting at is recent enouggh
14:38:00pamauryI almost wish I had not discovered why the ZEN locks up sometimes on boot, it brings more question than it actually solves
14:45:43pamaurythe good thing is: with hwstub, I can nearly do post-moterm analysis of the device
14:47:57[Saint]hwstub is a really beautiful thing.
14:48:05[Saint]scary beautiful.
14:48:07copper99f3f77ee87ad06e0d5a7572c2ebaaf76c526ac1 is the first bad commit
14:48:11copperskin_engine: Pass string to put_line() via $t because they can be very large.
14:48:34[Saint]I should've said that sooner. It really deserves praise.
14:49:06pamaury[Saint]: it's very simple, but very useful indeed
14:49:57copperkugel: ^^ that's yours :P
14:51:26pamaurythat's really really puzzling: if resetting a dma channel fail, how I am supposed to do anything safe on this SoC ?
14:53:09kugelcopper: can you try to run HEAD+this reverted on top?
14:53:12***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
14:53:21copperhow do I do that?
14:53:45kugelcheckout master and run "git revert 99f3f77ee87ad06e0d5a7572c2ebaaf76c526ac1"
14:54:16pamaurychrisjj: I have identified the ZEN black-screen-of-death culprit, but I don't know how to solve it at the moment, it's a complete mystery
14:54:21copperdoing it
14:55:40copperkugel: HEAD + reverted commit works (no bug)
14:56:08kugeldo you have (very) long lines on the wps?
14:57:14copperI think I fucked up somewhere
14:57:31copperhow do I reset my git tree
14:57:43kugelgit reset −−hard
14:58:05kugelbut that undos any local changes too
14:58:41[Saint]might be best to stash first if theres anything you care about in there.
15:00:49[Saint]but maybe it's just me that constantly seems to have uncommitted work scattered around 24/7
15:00:50copperah, shit
15:00:52*kugel can't find anything wrong in that commit
15:00:53copperI fucked up
15:01:02copperit's not that commit
15:01:06kugelah ok
15:01:15copperapparently I didn't encounter the bug on a bad commit
15:01:24copperI know how to make sure to reproduce the bug now
15:01:34copperbut I have to start bisecting all over again
15:01:53kugelbut it is sure appreciated
15:02:18[Saint]Its like, 6 to 8 runs, if youre unlucky, I think.
15:02:32[Saint]But that's still more than enough to get tedious.
15:03:51[Saint]I no longer have a working Classic. But I could probably make one out of the three corpses I have here.
15:11:22pamauryI think I have definitely run into a hardware bug
15:11:28pamauryAnd I don't have the errata for this chip
15:13:36coppereec89a90ffdd077d687914fe18a9e48028f07fb4 is the first bad commit
15:13:41copperlists: Adapt put_line().
15:13:45copperThis enables removing large portions of code, simplifiyng the drawing routine.
15:13:49copperAll of the removed code is functionaltiy now available through put_line().
15:14:20copperkugel: I hope I didn't fuck this up this time
15:14:29coppercan I try the same HEAD + reverted change thing?
15:15:04kugelthat won't work I'm afraid
15:15:08copperI figured
15:15:13kugelbecause the functions previously used are now removed
15:15:24copperI'm going to double check though
15:19:55copperdid I accidentally commit something?
15:20:18kugeldon't know
15:20:20kugelcheck git log
15:20:41copperI did
15:20:45copperit shows my "commit"

15:28:23copperugh, looks like a lot of work
15:31:50kugeldoes the bug appear with default settings (did you try deleting config.cfg?)
15:32:05kugelcopper: ^
15:32:34copperyeah I reset the config when I checked and double checked
15:32:34kugelalso, how does the corruption look like?
15:32:57copperkugel: like the bullshit graphical interference on a hacked computer in some silly cop show
15:33:12kugelall over the screen, or just an area?
15:33:15copperall over
15:35:41kugelcopper: please try if that patch has any effect
15:38:56copperkugel: bug is still there with the patch on top of eec89a90ffdd077d687914fe18a9e48028f07fb4; I only rebuilt the binary (make bin)
15:39:55kugeldid text scrolling in lists stop working with that patch?
15:40:55copperfile names don't scroll in the file browser
15:41:24copperthe current directory name does scroll though
15:42:22[Saint]why on earth woukd this be target specific?
15:42:52kugelthat's a good question
15:48:10kugelcopper: try this
15:48:28copperon top of the other patch?
15:48:56kugelinstead of that
15:48:57copperon top of eec89a90ffdd077d687914fe18a9e48028f07fb4 or HEAD?
15:49:09kugelany of them
15:49:17kugelwhat's your reproduce recipe?

15:58:45copperover the air
15:58:58[Saint]what color pill did you take?
15:59:12copperlike Mr. Jesse Pinkman
15:59:18kugelagain, instead of any otehr patch
15:59:33copperkugel: I see what you did there. ;)
16:01:22kugelthis looks more like a lcd driver problem to me
16:01:35kugelbecause, as you see, the content is fine, it's just shifted
16:01:49copperbug still there, though less visually brutal
16:03:08copperI hardly see the kind of corruption on the video, but as I go up and down the list of files, the displays shifts to the left, and back to the right
16:03:13kugelplus, the statusbar is also affected
16:03:21kugelbut the commit does not affect the statusbar
16:04:02kugelpamaury: ^
16:04:23copperso, your commit just causes an otherwise silent bug to show?
16:04:35kugelcopper: no idea how that commit could make this kind of problem appear, or even make worse
16:05:01coppersounds like you changed a bunch of stuff, no?
16:05:05kugelI wonder why pamaury sees no problems
16:05:12copperbecause pamaury has a different display
16:05:32kugelI changed only high level stuff
16:05:37copperthere was another display bug that showed on some Fuze+'s (including mine), but not his
16:05:50pamaurythere are two kinds of LCD on the fuze+

16:07:21pamaurythis is super weird, never seen anything like this
16:07:32copperpamaury: lcd kind: ili9325
16:07:47pamauryI have the other one
16:08:01copperI know
16:08:08kugelpamaury: can you try git HEAD with settings reset?
16:08:09copperhow do I get out of the hw info stuff?
16:08:22pamaurycopper: power button
16:08:28pamauryit will probably crash anyway
16:08:34copperyeah I think it just froze
16:08:51kugelif you still see no problems, then it's 99% sure a lcd driver/type problem, because copper sees this issue in the same setup
16:09:06toehser1Freezing bug seems to be fixed, now I just have the weird "scrolling fields stop being scrolling fields, bug navigating out of WPS and back makes them scroll again".
16:09:09pamaurykugel: is there something new ? I mean I tested HEAD like 1h ago
16:09:17kugelwith settings reset?
16:09:29pamauryit's the same driver, the only difference is in the init sequence
16:09:50kugeltiming problems?
16:09:53toehser1Whoops, just froze on "loading".
16:09:56copperthose super random bugs are scaring me
16:10:00pamaurythere cannot be in the mode used
16:10:04pamauryI have another fuze+, let me check the lcd kind
16:10:54kugelso, two fuze+'s with different lcds, same rockbox version and config, one shows the problem and the other one doesnt
16:11:03kugelwhat would you think? :)
16:11:27pamauryyeah but the difference between the two is none on lcd refresh, it's the exact same code :-/
16:11:44kugelplus, my samsung ypr0 also doesnt show the problem (same version and display resolution)
16:12:05copperone step forward, one step back
16:12:15kugelpamaury: perhaps that's the problem and the lcd need to be handled separately
16:12:47pamaurythe OF handles them both the same way too
16:12:56kugelIMO all evidence is saying that this is a target specific, perhaps even lcd specific, bug
16:14:37pamauryI agree, but then I have no idea what the problem is :-/
16:14:50kugelalthough it's very strange that my put_line() makes it appear seemingly out of nowhere
16:15:13copperit's not just me though
16:15:22copperit was first reported in my ABI threads
16:15:36copper"Okay, so I've got Rockbox on my Fuze+, and it is freezing up repeatedly and the screen glitches a lot (flickering, becomes pixelated, etc.)."
16:15:55toehser1Hasn't frozen for me yet on the real clipzip with today's tip. Still does the loses-scrolling bug on the real target, too.
16:16:00copperso I guess that rules out my Fuze+ being special or defective
16:16:57kugelcopper: I wonder what LCD type the other guy has
16:17:17pamauryI need to wait a bit, it's completely discharged
16:17:59copperprobably the same one
16:18:03copperI can ask
16:18:17kugelwould be helpful to know
16:21:11pamaurycopper: where do you live ? (which country ?)
16:21:18copperpamaury: France
16:21:30pamauryah true, forgot that
16:21:34copperI bought the Fuze+ from a UK shop I think
16:21:42copperand it's a refurb
16:22:03pamaurywhich city ?
16:24:33pamauryif you had lived in Paris you could have come and show me the player ^^
16:27:37copperI couldn't be farther from Paris
16:27:48copper50 km more south and I'd be in Spain :P
16:28:24[Saint]Almost my antipodes I think.
16:29:03toehser1I added FS #12931 for my weird scrolling bug.
16:29:04fs-bluebot Fields "stop being scrolling fields" until reset by navigating out of WPS. (bugs, unconfirmed)
16:29:24pamauryboth my fuze+ are st7783 kind
16:30:04toehser1Any hints where to look in the code, something that maintains a scrolling/not state on a field in the view, but that is reset when navigating out and back to the WPS?
16:30:11[Saint]perhaps you could swap for a bit?
16:30:24Songs0fFailurepamaury: hi! how things are with STMFM1000 support in rockbox ? it seems that i found datasheet for this fm chip.
16:30:41[Saint]pamaury copper ^
16:31:05pamaury[Saint]: sadly, my second Fuze+ is a piece of shit, the battery is dead
16:31:30pamaurySongs0fFailure: I have a working proof of concept (without RDS)
16:31:38[Saint]and buying a new one is a big gamble.
16:31:54[Saint]luck would dictate always getting the wrong one.
16:32:03pamaurySongs0fFailure: I guess you found the "brief datasheet" which is mostly useless, there is no datasheet for this chip unfortunately
16:32:40pamauryYeah, the only safe bet would be to buy it from someone who has two of them for example, knowing it's of the right kind
16:32:55*[Saint] nods
16:33:05pamaurywe can still try a few things remotely on copper's fuze+ I'm sure
16:34:04pamauryfirst I'll double check the init sequence, compare with the OF
16:35:54pamaurythen we can check if the bug still exists when always doing full screen refresh instead of partial refresh
16:36:28pamaurymaybe the LCD has some limitations on the partial refresh window
16:36:32Songs0fFailurepamaury: must be DS, not brief. it's form chinese forum ;) but i need help and i think PurlingNayuki can help to get DS.
16:36:45pamaurySongs0fFailure: how many pages ?
16:36:51pamaurydo you have a link ?
16:39:11toehser112931 might be related to 12894, but that one had a fix pushed.
16:40:48copperpamaury: if I shipped you my Fuze+ for as long as you need, would you be able to study it enough so as to squash potential future bugs? I can use my iPod Classic in the mean time.
16:41:22pamaurycopper: can't be sure, first we should try what I wrote and if it doesn't work, maybe we can try this
16:41:35pamauryI need to go, I'll be back at 21h
16:42:00copperwhat about the iPod Classic, should I bisect that too?

18:00:28copperSovonHalder: wait
18:00:39copperI haven't confirmed that the Classic works yet
18:00:48copperthose archives won't work with an old build
18:00:58SovonHalderI've been waiting all day.. :) it's okay..please take your time

18:05:31Sovonthe freezing thing with latest iPod classic rockbox versions were irrespective of themes. iPod froze even on cabbiv2. when approximately will a proper fixed version of rockbox for ipod classic be released ?
18:05:55copperkugel: everything works great with HEAD on the iPod Classic :D
18:05:58SovonI'm currently using 16th Dec 2013 version with your Googley Classic Green
18:06:25Sovonwaiting for rockbox fix...then will upgrade with your updated themes
18:06:58kugelcopper: awesome
18:07:11copperwas gonna say: this is awesome
18:07:49kugelI installed your fine themes on my ypr0, they are really ncie
18:07:54copperyour work makes a huge difference
18:08:46coppernow there's just the FMS artwork loading thing
18:08:52copperbut that's really minor
18:09:03 Quit Marex (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
18:09:07copperi.e. the artwork doesn't load when first entering the FMS
18:09:15copperit loads after exiting the FMS or changing stations
18:11:36copperSovon: as soon as you can download a build from HEAD (193911af760d460198fc7f08bf6da824f74975b7), you can install the new archive I linked to (the Classic one)
18:11:59Sovonwhat ?
18:12:03SovonHEAD ?
18:12:07copperI updated them to remove the workarounds that are no longer necessary, and I also added a visually indication of the hold switch
18:13:40Sovonwhat did you mean by - 'you can download a build from HEAD (193911af760d460198fc7f08bf6da824f74975b7)' ?
18:14:13copperI mean a build of the iPod Classic port that's built from the very latest revision
18:16:43Sovontill this afternoon the latest version of rockbox for classic was 6e882b4...which had the freezing bug
18:16:52Sovonis it fixed now?
18:17:39copperyup, everything is fixed, as far as I can tell
18:17:46 Join Raptors [0] (
18:17:55copperyou want build 193911a
18:18:13SovonI'm checking right now
18:19:58copperkugel is now officially my new personal hero
18:20:37 Quit benedikt93_ (Quit: Bye ;))
18:20:59copperfeels good when all the time and effort really pay off
18:22:06Sovonit's 193911a-140112 . .loading it right now :)
18:22:46copperSovon: I suggest completely erasing /.rockbox and unpacking the build and theme archive and start from scratch
18:23:19coppermy updated themes use new files and no longer use some old files
18:23:46copperI also dropped the A14/A19/B14/B19 variants
18:24:03coppertakes too damn long to update them, and they're pretty much useless anyway
18:24:29copperin order to get the behavior that you like, just set the "status bar" setting in the theme settings menu to either "top" or "bottom"
18:24:52 Quit Raptors (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
18:24:54Sovonglad to hear it's still there
18:25:04coppersure, I wasn't going to remove it
18:25:36copperafter you've made sure that everything works well, I suggest making a full backup of your /.rockbox directory
18:25:57copperi.e. zip it and save the zip file somewhere safe
18:25:58Sovonwhy ?
18:26:15copperjust so that you have a fully working backup in case there's a new bug later in some newer revision
18:26:32copperso that you can revert back to your working setup
18:26:59Sovonah!..that's what i learnt today...around October the versions were fine perfectly..
18:27:14Sovonbut now they are more or less buggy
18:27:26toehser1I'll check when I can but probably have to go out before build will be done, 90% it will be >6hrs til I can test it.
18:27:38Sovoni'll backup as soon as i see everything is a-okay
18:28:21toehser1Maybe if I just make instead of make clean...
18:28:34copperSovon: actually what happened here, is that kugel fixed a whole bunch of theme bugs, that my old themes had workarounds for
18:28:44copperso, yes, it worked, but only barely
18:28:58copperthe slighest modifications would run me into those theme bugs
18:29:13copperso, updating my themes (or making new ones) was very difficult and annoying
18:29:29coppernow kugel has fixed all that, and I have fixed my themes as well
18:29:59copperplus the addition of the hold switch indicator (it changes the storage indicator from dots to vertical bars)
18:30:02toehser1quick check it seems ok now
18:30:09Sovonwhat about future? will your themes be compatible with future rockbox versions ?
18:30:20copperthey should be, barring some new bugs
18:30:41copperactually they are now "correct", they weren't before
18:30:55copperthey weren't before, because I had to work around the theme bugs
18:31:09copperso the old situation was far from ideal
18:31:12copperit's much better now
18:32:25copperand I'll probably be more motivated to make changes or make new themes now
18:32:55copperbecause I won't be running into those bullshit bugs that had completely unpredictable consequences
18:33:20copperit's like my old themes were hanging by a thread
18:33:27copperor duct tape
18:34:07copperlike, I had to include a specific number of empty lines at some place in my theme markup, just so that a bug wouldn't show
18:34:24copperone empty line too many or too few, bam, the whole thing would break
18:35:10coppernow, I'll be curious to see if other theme authors come here to complain that their themes no longer work :P
18:35:19copperor users
18:37:32toehser1So far seems to work on the real hardware too.

19:09:21Sovonmine's are also cover.jpg
19:09:38Sovonmaybe the problem is from my end
19:09:53copperSovon: the restarting thing when changing themes and theme settings happens for me too… I don't know if it's intended, but it's harmless
19:10:20copperSovon: also, re-initialize the database, since you likely deleted it
19:10:32kugelit's kind of intended
19:10:41copperkugel: no more empty lines that I can see
19:11:01copperonly one empty line between each block for readability
19:11:36kugelnot sure how I fixed that but great :)
19:11:53copperthere are still very long conditional lines, I didn't test where new line characters are allowed, and where they are not
19:12:25Sovonfuck me..
19:12:28Sovonone reboot
19:12:38Sovon& the artworks are showing perfectly okay now
19:12:43copperthere you go :)
19:12:59Sovonthere is a huge difference though..I mean
19:13:30SovonI've been using the 16th Dec version for a couple of hours...but now I see the most latest version is way faster least 3 times faster ..awesome works you all
19:13:54copperthat may also be due to starting over with a clean setup
19:14:06copperI observed that as well in the past
19:14:09SovonI don't think so..

19:16:00copperRockbox code affects so many different targets, that some innocent looking code can produce the weirdest bugs on some targets, like we just saw
19:16:14kugelpretty sure there was no commit that made anything explicitely faster would be way cooler if rockbox website had a page or a forum that had a Developer's Pick version..
19:16:47copperkugel: when I saw the bug on the fuze+, it was indeed very slow
19:16:48kugelcopper: or no bugs at all on other targets (like mine)
19:17:01coppervery laggy
19:17:17copperand skip on ABI also reported long loading times
19:17:22copperso, who knows

19:54:25kugelcopper: you can update them
19:54:44kugelthemes for targets for which no stable release exists implicitely require the current build

20:10:56copperbugs that affected several targets (Fuze+, Classic and Video) in various weird ways
20:14:10saratogaIIRC the wheel on the fuze is polled, so starving its thread would probably explain erratic wheel operation

21:56:33saratogaso in that sense its improved
21:58:32saratogais FS #12883 still a problem? a lot has changed on the fuze+ and opus since then

22:06:54kugellebellium: where can I find the most recent version of your theme?
22:07:27lebelliumthe problem is that when I reported the RDS bug, I was in Berlin where the FM signal was strong. Here in Paris suburbs, it's too weak to get RDS data
22:07:43lebelliumkugel: on the theme website
22:08:00*pamaury manage to get some RDS in Paris suburbs

22:19:03fs-bluebot Various RDS issues (Clip Zip, YP-R0) (bugs, unconfirmed)
22:20:33lebelliumkugel: not right now but later sure :)

22:29:56*kugel would be too nice to be true if all those weird-ass bugs and crashes would be gone for good now
22:30:27kugelbut one can still dream :>

22:33:28copperyeah I confirm that scrolling RDS data works on the actual device (Fuze+)
22:33:46copperkugel: that's a lot of them already

22:35:39copperthe RDS weirdness comes from the fact that its content gets incremented until it's complete
22:35:54copperI assume that's how it's broadcast or something?
22:36:13copperonce the RDS content is complete, it scrolls like normal metadata
22:46:21coppermaybe it's a trick they found to animate the RDS data on car stereos and such
22:46:26copper(totally talking out of my ass here)
22:51:17kugelcopper: I know too little about RDS to tell if this is the right behavior
22:51:33kugelbut it's ever been like this in Rockbox
22:53:23***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
22:59:02*[Saint] should probably see if his case of "have to include empty lines just to stop the theme from imploding" are fixed.
22:59:30[Saint]you can see the ugliness i need to do in my github cabbie variant.
23:00:15[Saint](other themes aren't immune, im just the only one that seems to use touchscreen variable state checking
23:00:53kugeltouchscreen cabbiev2 in git uses skin variables
23:01:19[Saint]I'll have to see how youre missing the bug then.
23:01:39[Saint]I need to include more blank lines than my AA viewport is high.
23:02:01[Saint]Otherwise the variable check draws a fat grey box over AA.
23:02:18kugelwould be nice if you could re-check that
23:02:41[Saint]Which can be pushed around by adding/subtracting blank lines.
23:02:57[Saint]My "solution" was to push it out of bounds.
23:03:37[Saint]I should've been more strict on bug reports.
23:03:54[Saint]Instead of agreeing to "remind me later".
23:04:23[Saint]Which had less than stellar results, and was rather soul sucking at times.

23:32:45copper[Saint]: the empty lines thing to "push the bug out of bounds" was fixed in my case
23:33:14copperso you should check with HEAD indeed
23:34:12copperunless I'm misunderstanding

23:35:06[Saint]sounds like a very _similar_ bug indeed.
23:35:47[Saint]But this one is specific to touchscreen variable set/get/inc/dec
23:36:47[Saint]copper: out of interest, did your case also draw N lines of grey overtop of where it interfered?
23:37:03[Saint]Where N == Lines Of Offending Code

23:39:46copperin my case I got grey lines yes, and my fix was also to add N empty lines to "push it out of bounds"
23:40:55[Saint]Which tag(s) showed this for you?
23:41:34copper%Vl() %Vf() and %s and metadata tags
23:41:53copperI mean blocks made of the above sequence
