#rockbox log for 2014-01-27

00:01:43 Quit pamaury (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
00:02:16kugel[Saint]: most code hasnt been adapted yet
00:04:29[0xAF]just finished dumping the disk ... seems ok
00:05:32 Quit Rower (Quit: Hmmm...)
00:08:21[0xAF]hmm binary did not change it's size after enabling this debug
00:12:21[0xAF]one thing i notice... RB shuts down the HDD quite often (small timeout, it's set to 5secs)... so there is a delay when browsing folders or opening files .... because it needs to power-up the HDD (i can hear it)
00:12:37[0xAF]the fallback image is not doing it this way ... probably the timeout for the HDD is larger
00:12:53[0xAF]another stupid thing is that it does not crash now ...
00:12:59[Saint]It shouldn't be.
00:13:16[Saint]Also, it shouldn;t need to spin up for directory browsing at all.
00:13:26[Saint]dircache should be enabled by default
00:13:40[Saint]So the directory structure shoudl all be cached in RAM.
00:14:02[0xAF]i saw few dirs that took ~1 sec to enter ...
00:14:13[0xAF]but I could be wrong
00:14:26[Saint]Is there a ridiculous amount of files in them?
00:14:39[Saint](subdirectories don't matter)
00:15:29 Join SuperBrainAK [0] (~andy@2001:470:8:a61::5f92:59a1)
00:15:30[0xAF]dircache is not working ... i browse folders with 10-15 files/subfolders ... and i can hear the disk spin-up
00:15:35[0xAF]takes 1 sec to enter the dir
00:15:43[Saint]It might need to spin up if the amount of files in a single directory (not including its subdirectories) is greater than the limit specified.
00:16:05[0xAF]havent touched the limits
00:16:06[Saint]But I think the default is rather high.
00:16:27[Saint]So unless you literally have thousands of files in a single directory, I doubt this would be the issue.
00:16:33[0xAF]spin-up the disk for a folder with 1 file and 3 subfolders
00:17:23[0xAF]hold on to disconnect and check the settings ... or reaply them ?!?
00:17:41[Saint]I haven't used a HDD based target in ages (well, I use targets that are intended to be HDD based, but they are all SSD or CF converted).
00:17:58[0xAF]strange it didnt crashed now ...
00:18:07[Saint]So I'm not 100% sure I'm remembering how dircache should behave correctly.
00:18:16[0xAF]interesting ... can i put SSD or CF in the iPod ?
00:18:41[0xAF]isn't dircache for RB itself, not for external mounting ?
00:19:09[0xAF]hmm after disconnecting the device, i cant move in the menu again
00:19:16[Saint]Ohhhhh - derp. YEs. Sorry. I thought you were referring to browsing on the device, using Rockbox.
00:19:40[0xAF]now i can, sorry... should have been the touch-dial (or whatever it's called)
00:21:02[Saint]The iPods have a bug where sometimes you can't move around in the menus or use the select key until after scrolling on the wheel.
00:21:17[0xAF]i think the DEBUG flag that i set is not working ... the binary was the same size and i see no debug file around ...
00:21:46[0xAF][Saint]: yeah... i think i noticed that bug few times
00:22:08[Saint]It is possible that merely enabling log-to-disk is only a small piece of the puzzle.
00:22:14[Saint]It is entirely foreign to me.
00:22:28[0xAF]ok, i will try to reprodice the problem first
00:22:34[0xAF]dunno why it's working now ...
00:22:43[Saint]It may be that logging needs to be enabled in the various subsystems as well.
00:23:28[0xAF]i will try to get the default behaviour of the usb mouting back ... since i've inverted the detection of the button
00:27:03[0xAF]hmm no problems again

20:16:18cstcyrSo it does not seem possible to install Rb on a iPod on OS X 10.9? From what I've read on the web I need to do it on a PC?

20:17:00bluebrothergevaerts: ok, then I guess I'll just leave my signature as-is right now.
20:17:14cstcyrMore specifically installing the bootloader is impossible. I've used the Rockbox utility and ipodpatcher and both fail because they do not have permission

20:17:42bluebrothercstcyr: do you have Itunes running?
20:17:55ildarionpamaury: ok
20:18:08bluebrotheryou need to shut it down completely (the icon must not "glow"), and you might need to first enable disk access to the ipod in itunes
20:19:47pamauryildarion: download this
20:20:33cstcyrdamn I can't seem to apply disk use without syncing

20:21:20cstcyrbluebrother: oh well I guess I'll erase and sync
20:22:40pamauryildarion: ah wait, wrong link sorry ^^
20:25:09pamauryonce you have both, plug your device in recovery mode (hold volume up when plugging from power off state, and keep holding volume up for a few seconds)
20:25:42bluebrothercstcyr: I've installed Rockbox using OS X on an Ipod a couple of times, but I'm still using 10.6. Haven't found the time to install 10.9 yet
20:26:08bluebrotherso there might be a problem on 10.9 I'm not aware yet. Maybe some gatekeeper thing
20:27:06cstcyrSo I'm an RB newb, does RB have access to all the music I synced with iTunes?
20:28:12pamauryildarion: then open a command prompt (run cmd.exe iirc) and run "sb_loader -f" in which you replace "" by the full path to the OF and "sb_loader" by the full path to the tool you downloaded
20:29:17bluebrothercstcyr: Itunes puts your files into a special folder (iPod_Control) and scrambles filenames. Rockbox can access this, but browsing them with the file browser is a bit problematic :)
20:29:38bluebrotheryou can either use the database (which assumes your files to be tagged correctly) or rename / resync them
20:30:03bluebrotherthough the latter is something you need to do manually (or use some tool that can perform this for you, of course)

20:34:05bluebrotherafter a failed attempt of course :)
20:34:27bluebrothersounds like I have to install 10.9 sometime soon :o

20:37:48bluebrotherok, nothing the log reveals. Too bad.
20:38:02ildarioncmd.exe yes
20:38:07bluebrotherI guess I have to install 10.9 and debug it.
20:38:08cstcyrI can always do it when I get home on the PC
20:38:14cstcyrThanks for your help man
20:38:21bluebrotherbtw, have you tried installing without running it as root?
20:38:32bluebrotherat least on 10.6 this isn't necessary.
20:38:42cstcyrI've run Rb as both user and root
20:38:50cstcyrI've only run ipodpatcher as root
20:39:03bluebrotherso I guess Apple changed something to block applications from this kind of accesses.
20:39:24bluebrotherwhich is a bit annoying. Though also kinda understandable.
20:39:59cstcyryeah changing the bootloader of a USB connected device is pretty hardcore stuff for software to be doing on your system
20:40:12pamauryildarion: the simplest way is to first use the "cd" command to move to the directory where you downloaded sb_loader, put in the same directory and then run the command I wrote without any modification
20:40:18bluebrotherso as of now I can only tell you to either try to find a machine with 10.6 or use a Windows box.
20:40:45pamauryFor example, "cd Downloads" and then "sb_loader -f" but of course you might have to "cd" to a different directory

20:51:23copperrasec301985: ^
20:51:33ildarionpamaury: yes
20:52:22pamauryildarion: what did it do ? if it worked correctly, you fuze+ should be in OF USB mode
20:52:27rasec301985hi copper, can you help me? yes i did... but nothing appears
20:52:45ildarionsansa should install update right ?
20:53:24ildarionseem to don't trigger
20:53:28pamauryif it didn't display an upgrade screen, no it didn't install anything yet.
20:53:37pamauryso you confirm you have the OF running now ?
20:53:47ildarionI will try the run again
20:54:03copperrasec301985: what's showing on your iPod's display right now?
20:55:22rasec301985copper: it shows me "please copy a UBI file to the mass storage device and safely eject it when you're done. if you booted this accidentally, just press and hold menu+select to reboot
20:55:48rasec301985copper: and i already copy the ubi file...
20:57:23pamauryildarion: your goal is to have the OF running when USB is plugged, you probably won't manage to trigger an update just this way, we need to do more stuff afterwards
20:57:47copperrasec301985: well, did you disconnect the USB cable?
20:58:03rasec301985copper: yes
20:58:14ildarionthe trigger issue is random ?
20:58:29rasec301985copper: and still the screen shows me that message
20:58:50copperrasec301985: then press and hold menu+select to reboot, and try again, I guess
20:59:18copperalso, that's a FreeMyIpod problem, not a Rockbox problem
21:00:09pamauryildarion: updated is triggered when *not* booting over USB
21:00:12rasec301985copper: ok. let me try again. please don't leave
21:00:41pamauryildarion: but since your OF since to not be working (that's what you told me yesterday), we need to proceed differently
21:01:05ildarionthe OF work, i can start on him
21:01:29pamauryhum, so what is the problem then ?
21:02:21ildarionwhen the device is plugged, it is "unknow" by windows
21:02:46ildarionwhen i'm lucky
21:02:55ildarionor just nothing happend
21:03:11ildarionso i can't install/update

21:04:25[Saint]Somebody rang?
21:06:53pamauryildarion: what does something happen after you run the sb_loader command ?
21:06:58pamaurydoes it print something ?
21:06:58rasec301985copper: still the same...
21:07:37rasec301985hi [Saint] can you help me with my problem?
21:07:43[Saint]rasec301985: Don;t use Windows 8.
21:07:53[Saint]Thjere's a reason why the instructions don;t mention it at all.
21:08:06[Saint]In fact, you'd be best to avoid Windows completely.
21:08:17rasec301985[Saint]: ok, why? is uncompatible?
21:08:34[Saint]We don't know why.
21:08:52[Saint]In theory, it should be perfectly fine, but theory and reality often don;t meet in the middle.
21:09:13rasec301985[Saint] jejeje right
21:09:24[Saint]I very strongly advise the use of a linux based system.
21:09:28ildarionwait pamaury, under an other PC on win XP, the device is detected and work like it should (the screen of sansa display if like normal) So i will try to update with rockboxutility on XP
21:09:39[Saint]Preferably something debian-esque.
21:09:59copperI didn't know about Windows 8 problems with emCORE
21:10:17rasec301985[Saint] ok. thanks for the help. and thank you too copper
21:10:40[Saint]Windows installation is a massive bunch of failure just waiting to happen.
21:10:54[Saint]Windows 8 just seems to add a little bit more insanity to the mix.
21:11:21[Saint]Also, it manages to piss off USB3, too.
21:11:32[Saint]...which in theory shouldn;t happen either.
21:12:17[Saint]So, yeah: 1 - Don't use Windows 8, preferably don't use Windows at all. 2 - Don't use USB3
21:16:56ildarionpamaury: the actual build of the fuze + is stable ?
21:17:01 Quit y4n (Quit: Assumption is the mother of all fuckups)
21:17:34[Saint]officially, no.
21:17:39[Saint]in practice, yes.

21:18:24[Saint]Rockbox runs on these players, but is incomplete, less usable or has problems that limit it to advanced users:
21:18:33[Saint] - SanDisk: Sansa Fuze+"
21:19:46pamauryin practice it is quite stable, at least for most people it seems
21:19:52[Saint]It is certainly far enough along that it is perfectly usable as an everyday DAP. But we couldn't promise that you wouldn't see any issues.
21:19:56pamaurymost crash sources are the theme engine unfortunately
21:20:10*[Saint] nods
21:20:34[Saint]FWIW, we couldn;t promise you wouldn;t see any issues even if the port classification /was/ "stable".

21:22:42ildarionbut before the update of the bootloader, no issue

21:28:10copperildarion: I didn't follow your case, but just in case: if you have installed version 2 of the bootloader, have you tried turning the Fuze+ off, and then plugging it via USB, without first turning it on?
21:28:12pamauryildarion: try to uninstall the device under your host (use the device manager)
21:28:59toehserI mean, in Windo$e
21:29:45[Saint]Please don;t use unnecessarily confusing (and plain silly) naming schemes.
21:30:07[Saint]Remember that people may be using machine translation, and/or not have English is their native language.
21:30:10pamauryildarion: plugging USB with Rockbox and volume down won't do anything particular, if you want to boot OF you need to plug with volume down from power off state
21:31:08pamauryhowever the crash is not normal
21:32:38toehserWhen the sansa is off, and you hold the button, and plug it into Windows, it isn't popping up a folder, but Windows also has settings screens where you can view raw disks and devices, that is where I would look, in Windows, both where it enumerates the USB devices found, and where it shows the detected block devices.
21:33:41ildarionjust test on windows Xp and works like intended

21:59:48[Saint]By my understanding of the device, I think it actually is "impossible", yeah.
22:00:11*[Saint] scratches his head and gives a puzzled and slightly bemused expression
22:01:01pamauryyeah because the part which selects between OF and USB runs *before* the host connection is made

22:01:19ildarionbut is different
22:01:35ildarionthe screen of sansa don't stay black
22:01:41pamauryah, what happen ?
22:01:50toehserWhat does "dmesg" say during that time?
22:02:03[Saint]At this point I'm willing to bet that the device, the host, or possibly even both, are electrically defective in some way.

22:32:26toehserYou may have a hardware issue. When I google the errors you're seeing, I see things like : If Linux suddenly happen to fail to recognize a USB drive, check dmesg for errors.

22:33:20gevaerts-71 is a timeout I believe
22:33:23gevaertsNot sure though
22:33:40ildarionBut if this is an HW issie Why it's work fine on windows XP ? :p
22:35:26ildarionthe entire problem is that: Work on windows XP, don't work on win7 and linux
22:35:26toehserLooks like it is disconnecting/reconnecting over and over... if it is software, it is down in the USB driver stuff.
22:36:08ildarionand before I update withe bootloader V2, is work fine on win 7
22:36:20ildarionSo, for me it's software
22:36:22toehserThe simple answer is to put a logic probe on the cable, connect in XP, connect in Linux, and compare... Not much help I know.

23:09:09ildarioneverything work (for now)
23:09:27ildarionbut not the USB on windows 7 and linux
23:09:52pamauryI mean, can you boot to the OF in USB mode on win7 or Linux by holding volume down ?
23:10:34ildarionyou mean i boot on the OF, holding volum down and plug ?
23:11:17pamauryyeah or power off, hold volume down and plug USB and keep holding; that's the standard procedure to enter OF USB mode
23:11:44pamauryif this doesn't work, it means the issue probably has nothing to do with USB
23:13:15ildarionbut if the work on win XP, what does mean ?

23:28:55pamaurydepends, could be electrical and my understanding is that you have different computers

23:29:31ildarion_tomorow i will try on the audio car
23:29:52pamauryas I said, it can't really be rockbox because if you boot to OF and it doesn't work, rockbox is not involved
23:30:38ildarion_when i say rockbox, i meen bootloader v2
23:31:12ildarion_it's possible to get and older version of the bootloader ?
23:34:04ildarion_nevermind, i will consider test an older bootloader later.
