08:39:43[Saint]headwhacker: the iBasso stuff isn't merged with our sources, and doesn't stand much of a chance of being merged, unless anyone else picks it up.
08:40:03[Saint]It bastardizes the Android port, instead of being its own distinct port.
08:40:08[Saint]So - no inclusion.
08:40:37[Saint]You'd probably have to talk to the original iBasso port guy...who seems to have vanished off the face of the earth.
08:40:48[Saint]Sorry. :-/
08:41:13headwhackerno worries, that's probably the best thing to do
08:42:02[Saint]I can't even tell you what the best way to get hold of him/her would be I'm afraid.
08:48:35[Saint]Hmmm, in hindsight, it is somewhat fitting that the iBasso Rockbox port bastardized the Android port since iBasso bastardized Android for their iBasso firmware to begin with...
08:51:31***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
08:52:37[Saint]Its essentially another hosted linux application, but, kludged into Android with most of the relevant Android bits stripped out.
08:53:02[Saint]I would *love* to know what drugs who was on when they decided that was a good idea.
08:55:11HaiKaiDoWell I restored the ipod and wiped it clean. Installed rockbox and it gave me the same ata -11 error
08:55:27HaiKaiDoNo clue why roxbox doesnt want to co operate
08:55:56[Saint]But the OF works flawlessly?
08:58:14HaiKaiDosyncing and everything works great
08:58:49HaiKaiDoIm willing to bet it has to do with the fact that Im using that Ziff to Sata adapter and the msata card

09:01:56HaiKaiDoyou mean which adapter?
09:02:05[Saint]I do.
09:02:12HaiKaiDolemme double check heh
09:02:29HaiKaiDothats the one i bought
09:04:15 Join ender` [0] (
09:07:06HaiKaiDois there something inherently wrong with using an adapter and rockbox?
09:07:24[Saint]There shouldn't be, no. In theory.
09:07:43[Saint]And, again in theory, if the OF is willing to accept it, Rockbox should too.
09:07:48[Saint]In practice, however...
09:12:08HaiKaiDohmm so more googling tells me that rockbox does not support modding your ipod
09:12:36[Saint]That's some plain BS right there.
09:12:50HaiKaiDowell someone released a patched version on that page
09:12:50[Saint]If the OF is willing to accept it, Rockbox should too.
09:13:07HaiKaiDoand for alot of people it was the only way to get it to work
09:13:25HaiKaiDo"Official Rockbox firmware does not support this MOD so download the patched rockbox firmware"
09:13:46*[Saint] remembers to harass that guy about GPL violation
09:14:21 Quit kuldeepdhaka (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
09:14:42HaiKaiDothats the patch he made
09:15:11[Saint]Aha. I guess I'm blind then.
09:15:45HaiKaiDoproblem is, i have no idea what to do with any of it XD
09:15:54HaiKaiDoand its probably an outdated version of rockbox -_-
09:19:05*[Saint] wonders if this relates to sector size fuckery.
09:20:14HaiKaiDoits possible
09:20:46HaiKaiDois there anywhere to request features or support for things such as this?
09:21:08[Saint]What model of Video did this start off life as?
09:21:23HaiKaiDo80gb V5
09:21:29[Saint]Actually, I don't think that has mattered since ages. Nevermind.
09:24:52HaiKaiDohmm interesting
09:25:13HaiKaiDothat same guy from the earlier website actually subbmitted his patch on the forums
09:25:19HaiKaiDoguess it wasnt accepted?
09:25:47HaiKaiDolol you responded to him! XD
09:26:07[Saint]Probably because the forums are a terrible place to dump patches when we have an issue tracker and gerrit instance for this.
09:26:34HaiKaiDowell since im sure that guy has disapeared into the the nothingness, is there anything you can do with it? :D

09:27:37HaiKaiDowell crap
09:27:48HaiKaiDolooks like no rockbox for me
09:28:01[Saint]I'm also not qualified to judge the edits made there.
09:28:09[Saint]Some content there seems superflous to me.
09:28:32HaiKaiDoim sure it would be a much better place to start than no where
09:30:09[Saint]I'm not sure if we'd ever get a situation that works out of the box everywhere.
09:30:12HaiKaiDoof course the guy has 0 ways to contact him on his site -_-
09:30:19[Saint]I mean, look at the last guy in that thread, for instance.

Then I downloaded the rockbox ulitity, ran just the bootloader install, and used your .rockbox zip instead of trying to "overwrite" the existing installed rockbox. Worked like a charm!"
09:32:29[Saint]I was paraphrasing.
09:32:39HaiKaiDoyeah, he said it was an OF problem
09:33:05HaiKaiDounless im reading wrong
09:33:16[Saint]Actually, I parsed it incorrectly.
09:33:48HaiKaiDoit just seems like because its an unofficial patch, the install method is wonky
09:34:14[Saint]I wonder what's going on. I have a Crucial something-or-other in one of my Videos.
09:34:26[Saint](which couldn't work more fine if it tried)
09:35:08HaiKaiDoand im using a crucial M500 120gb msata card
09:35:30HaiKaiDosoooo somethings gotta be with how rockbox is dealing with msata
09:36:18[Saint]I _think_ its a crucial...
09:36:27[Saint]Difference is there's no adapter plate.
09:36:48HaiKaiDohow are you going from ziff to msata?
09:36:50[Saint]Someone abandoned a 40 pin ZIF SSD at my hackerspace.
09:37:07[Saint]IKR? ;)
09:37:13HaiKaiDohow randomly lucky ffs lol
09:37:36HaiKaiDoI might just try what the last post suggest's as far as install method
09:39:49HaiKaiDoI even I even tried the latest dev build

09:50:55TheSevenHaiKaiDo: you most likely need this fix:
09:54:35[Saint]TheSeven: for a Video?
09:54:54TheSevenah, I was thinking classic...
09:56:03[Saint]I'm wondering if setting up with 2048byte sectors will magically make things work here
09:57:15TheSevenwhy 2048?
09:57:50[Saint]Or 512, or...something not 1096
09:58:07TheSevendoesn't the video use 512?
09:58:28[Saint]512 for the 30GB and 2048 for the 80, IIRC.
09:58:33TheSeventhe classic is doing 4096, which should actually make life easier for ssds
09:59:05*TheSeven reminds people that he needs reviews and testing for g#897, g#898 and g#899

09:59:20[Saint]Well done fs-bluebot!
09:59:28[Saint]Good buy, have a treat.
09:59:40HaiKaiDojust got back and caught up on the conversation
10:00:30*[Saint] is very interested in iPod Classic: Properly detect external power and charging state.
10:01:19[Saint]No more thinking my Apple wall warts trying to connect
10:01:25TheSevenI still didn't find a current sensor yet, seems like it has none :/
10:01:50TheSevenand that neither... that's USB-related
10:02:10TheSevenwhat I fixed is that it actually knows when it charges, and when firewire power is present
10:02:16[Saint]I'm wanting to play with the dualboot, but, IIUC, this isn;t working on the CEATA fat-fat-fatsons, is it?
10:02:40TheSevenI see no reason why ceata would need special treatment for that
10:02:50[Saint]Ah. I must've misparsed.
10:03:08TheSevenit used to be the other way round before we fixed HDD byte order back in 2011 ;)
10:03:42TheSevendualboot should just work with emcore head
10:03:50[Saint]How does the dualboot installer work? I assume it needs to be installed from a restored iPod in order to actually function?
10:04:07TheSevennot integrated in the boot menu or installer yet, but you can obtain an apple firmware image somehow and just "runfirmware" it through, it should work
10:04:47TheSevenotherwise it would require a restore, yes
10:05:06TheSevenbut I'll probably hold that back until we have a rockbox bootloader, which is around the corner ;)
10:05:31[Saint]I'm missing all this skype-related dev goodies, dammit. :)
10:06:02[Saint]I look through the logs and see "Oh, this works now, and...this, and we did this..."
10:06:23[Saint]then scan through the places I may have missed hoping to find the discussion...that I won't find.
10:06:34HaiKaiDoIs there anywhere that I should submit this bug to?
10:06:56TheSeventhere isn't much discussion anyway, I once again did most things myself, occasionally ranting about broken stuff in #freemyipod

10:29:42TheSevenregarding ipod classic bootloader installation, we have two options:
10:30:06TheSeven1. build a DFU payload that directly flashes a rockbox bootloader
10:30:26TheSeven2. build a DFU payload that somehow does a "tethered boot" of rockbox, then flash the bootloader from a plugin
10:30:53TheSeven3. a hybrid solution, doing 1. for initial installs and 2. for updates (but that's code duplication...)
10:31:38TheSevenalso where would that code belong in our tree?

11:43:55copperWavPack lossy:

11:49:51 Nick SuperBrainAK is now known as DormantBrain (~andy@
11:50:13derfSounds reasonable to me.
11:51:40*[Saint] notes that Opus is immune to that rant, because...well, because.
11:52:50copperyou know, that's funny
11:53:07copperbecause Opus lowers bitrate at a time where bitrate can finally go UP
11:54:36copperI could have used Opus at a time when I couldn't use WavPack Lossy or lossyFLAC
11:54:57coppernow I can use the latter, and I have no use for the former
11:55:42[Saint]Well...there's a difference. Opus has a chance of being widely implemented and having a future.
11:58:07copperas a voice / streaming codec, maybe
11:58:42copperprobably not as a replacement for MP3 / AAC for the masses
11:58:51[Saint]We'll see.
11:59:09copperHA and Rockbox people don't count :P
11:59:18[Saint]Its the only real competition there is.
11:59:31coppercompetition for what?
11:59:31[Saint]Its sure as shit not going to be lossy wav that takes the crown. :p
11:59:48copperI thought the competition was long over
11:59:57copperAAC for iTunes, MP3 for everything else
12:00:05[Saint]Only because there's been no real competitors.
12:00:13[Saint]Not because the competition was over.
12:00:20copperwhat about Ogg Vorbis?
12:01:10[Saint]That missed the boat by not really offering...well, shit all, really.
12:01:31copperbetter quality at lower bitrates, gaplessness
12:01:35coppermulti channel
12:02:41coppernote how MP3 is still there, even though AAC is the de-facto successor
12:02:55copperactually no-one uses AAC except Apple
12:03:05coppereveryone else is still using MP3
12:04:18copperI'm not entirely sure that technical merits count for much on the marketplace
12:07:26copper[Saint]: what's the status on Opus playback on a Clip+ btw?
12:07:50copperI see there have been speed improvements in HEAD
12:08:15copperdecoding speed*
12:15:10copperI'm just gonna run the same battbench with Opus VBR ~128
12:15:27copperI know people who are interested in that anyway
12:27:16TheSevenI think AAC failed hard because of the way it's licensed
12:28:13TheSevenIIRC, while MP3 licensing focused on encoders and streaming providers, you have to pay a per-unit-sold royalty for AAC decoders

12:42:37pamauryhow do I do that ?
12:42:37[Saint](no idea why, I just know that's how it is)
12:43:07[Saint]If you run "android", it'll bring up the Android SDk Manager.
12:43:23pamauryhum, doesn't do anything, maybe I miss something in the path
12:44:05[Saint]Ah, yeah, if its not in $PATH already you'll have to do /path/to/android
12:44:18[Saint]I seem to recall adding to $PATH being my doing. Sorry.
12:44:56pamauryfound it, let me try
12:45:26[Saint]Once the Android SDK Manager is running, build-tools 19.1 should be the third listing in the "tools" submenu.
12:45:48pamauryindeed, I found it
12:46:06[Saint]If you want to save space, you can uninstall everything *but* API 19 and build-tools 19.1
12:46:17[Saint]Its all needless cruft for RaaA.
12:47:06pamaurynow I get an error about arm-linux-androideabi-cpp: cc1 exec
12:47:29pamaurydo I need to put the arm-linux-* stuff in the PATH ? I thought the SDK path would be enough
12:47:49[Saint]Have you exported the env vars?
12:48:12pamauryexport ANDROID_NDK_PATH="~/project/android/android-ndk-r10" export ANDROID_SDK_PATH="~/project/android/adt/sdk"
12:48:57pamaurysurprinsingly configure finds the arm-linux-androideabi-* version
12:49:11pamaurymaybe I need to add it to the PATH
12:49:27[Saint]That error you're getting is the usual "env vars not exported" error IIRC.
12:50:09pamauryno, it doesn't tell me the env var are not exported
12:50:19[Saint]The only two path relevant items in my entire config are:
12:50:21[Saint]export ANDROID_NDK_PATH=/media/saint/Development/Android/android-ndk-linux-x86_64
12:50:21[Saint]export ANDROID_SDK_PATH=/media/saint/Development/Android/adt-bundle-linux-x86_64/sdk
12:50:22pamaurythe error comes from the arm-linux-androideabi-gcc itself
12:50:44pamauryso you have nothing related to android in your PATH ?
12:51:08[Saint]Do you have the multiarch shit installed?
12:51:38***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
12:51:51[Saint]Double hmmm.
12:53:26[Saint]What's the NDK version? Recent?
12:54:40pamaurybut I doubt it's a problem with the ndk since the arm gcc belongs to the build tools
12:56:00[Saint]Grasping at straws here, did you maybe grab the NDK for 64bit targets?
12:56:13[Saint](which, AFAIK, don;t actually exist yet in the real world)
12:56:55pamaurydon't think so: android-ndk32-r10-linux_x86_64
12:57:09[Saint]Nope. You did not.
12:57:13[Saint]What the...
12:57:58pamaurylet me try by explicitely adding the directoty to the PATH
12:58:07[Saint]I literally do nothing but: install SDK+NDK, grab the right API and build-tools, export env vars.
12:58:21pamauryhaha, seems to work
12:58:48pamaurylet's see what make does ^^
12:58:59pamaurydamned, something is really wrong

13:00:58[Saint]FWIW: If you're investigating this due to the framebuffer hint given in the logs a while back, I don't think that's a real avenue to pursue.
13:01:15[Saint]RaaA should be absolutely fine with running a binary lesser than the device resolution.
13:01:23[Saint]it'll just position it at 0,0
13:02:19[Saint]Also, I lied slightly, here's everything in my config that pertains to Android and Rockbox:
13:02:36[Saint]But, as you can see, half of it doesn't pertain to Rockbox, just Anroid.

13:05:59[Saint]So, just to run through, as I feel I may have been potentially misleading. You have: Android SDK Tools, Android SDK Platform-tools, Android SDK Build-tools (19.1), and SDK Platform 19?
13:06:32[Saint]But, despite that, it still complains unless you added the toolchain to the path explicitly?
13:07:16pamaurybut something is strange: I ran make, got an error about missing header, ran make again and now it works
13:07:40pamauryI need to leave, I'll be back with news about this ;)
13:08:00[Saint]Either myself, or a machine pretending to be me and logging, will be here. Thanks.

14:39:22[Saint]Well...that sucks.
14:40:02[Saint]I assume there's a reason for it, but, ...suck.
14:40:39plocoglad you understand my frustration
14:41:07[Saint]I guess this is why you made the scaling patch?
14:41:14[Saint]Or, part of the reason.
14:41:34plocoyes, part of it
14:41:54[Saint]Without the knowledge of this regression, I couldn't really understand it.
14:42:05[Saint]It becomes clearer now.
14:45:41plocoI hope there is a solution that can replace the skin engine with the Android API, but this means rewrite the whole skin engine and output in JAVA.
14:46:40[Saint]If we go native... There's no point bringing the theme engine with us.
14:46:57[Saint]Too much work for a niche market gain.
14:47:26*TheSeven complains about SCSI being a complicated mess!
14:47:53plocoagree. I tried so I know. it's a endless journey
14:50:00[Saint]One option would be to leave it accessible so that the user can ovveride the default (native) theme if they wanted to open that can of worms and accept the issues they'll create for themselves.
14:50:35[Saint]The glaring issue is that in pre-4.2 builds, you'll lose the status and nav bars.
14:51:01[Saint]It only works on 4.2+ by accident.

14:59:04[Saint]I'm not sure that was figured out on our end.
14:59:33[Saint]On a side note, it is DISTURBING how many similar things have been worked on here.

15:34:02pamaury[Saint]: with my build, rockbox now works on my phone
15:34:09pamaurybut I don't have any icon in the theme
15:34:56pamauryin fact I do but there are super super small
15:34:57pamauryand without color
15:36:31pamaurydefinitely super ugly
15:37:33[Saint]No theme for this resolution.
15:37:39[Saint]So, fallback.
15:37:57pamauryyeah, that's pretty horrible
15:38:04[Saint]Which is built with small res daps in mind. :)
15:38:46[Saint]Tweak the config manually if you have to.
15:41:21[Saint]One of the wide and varied reasons why we:
15:41:36[Saint]A - don't promote RaaA at all
15:41:47[Saint]B - need a full native UI
15:42:05pamauryploco: what's that ?
15:42:08plocothat's a theme for 480x854 from rockbox chinese community
15:42:15pamaury[Saint]: yeah I now, I just never tested by myself ^^
15:43:01[Saint]But I sure don't have the time to do it, even if I did have the capability.
15:43:11[Saint]I know I can build the UI.
15:43:30[Saint]But I have NO idea how to make Rockbox use it.
15:44:24pamauryI sure am a poor UI designer, maybe I could make rockbox use it but I would need to learn a lot, I think kugel made a self contained player based on qt so that's a great first step

20:31:30TheSevenIIUC our current code will lock up the connection if the host ever sends a request that we don't support
20:33:47TheSeventhat code has a style of doing everything as directly as possible, cutting away several useful abstraction layers
20:34:07TheSevenit doesn't even really keep track of where it current is within a SCSI transaction
20:34:22TheSevenif something goes wrong, it sometimes just sends a CSW, even though the host expects to receive data
20:34:44TheSeventhen, when the host attempts to receive the CSW, we just don't respond at all, not even sending a STALL
