01:06:39Bilgusok __builtin I'm going to leave well enough alone I started to make chessbox able to save partial positions to the pgn files that then lead to making a FEN notation generator which was easy enough then to a FEN parser to set the board back up and I realized if I'm going to all this trouble I might as well start from scratch and fix the damn thing right and really I have no desire to so I'm leaving well enough alone lol
01:07:47__builtinit'd be nice to have a beatable chess game :)
01:08:59__builtinis the bug in GNU Chess or the rockbox-specific code?
01:09:15Bilguswhat I have up on gerrit fixes it
01:10:08BilgusReally the game should end at the move limit someone removed that limit and that is where the bug comes in to play
01:10:59Bilguswhat I have done makes the game array rollover which works well enough
01:11:21__builtinthat sounds like a good compromise, does it break any current functionality?
01:11:26Bilgusit just happens to make an invalid pgn file
01:12:10Bilgusbut since rb doesn't handle pgn files with arbitrary starting positions anyway its kinda no harm no foul
01:12:35Bilgusplus prior to this you wouldn't have ever had that pgn file anyways
01:13:09__builtinsounds like a good enough "fix" to me
01:13:27BilgusI added bounds checking into the pgn load function so the user gets a message 'unable to parse file' or something along those lines if they try to select that pgn entry
01:13:48Bilgusme as well.
01:14:34__builtinI think there is one little issue in gnuchess.c; you have a hard-coded 255 instead of MAX_GAME_CNT - 1
01:16:24Bilgusreally MAX GAME CNT should be UCHAR MAX + 1
01:16:28Bilgusas well
01:17:25__builtinhmm, that seems a bit excessive, that would imply that CHAR_BIT != 8, and chessbox brekaing wouldn't be a major concern by then ;)
01:25:04Bilgusk lol
01:26:13*__builtin predicts that the end of the world as we know it will happen whenever someone changes CHAR_BIT
01:28:52__builtinif you can fix the hard-coded value, I should be able to merge it
01:35:14Bilgusdone, same in chessbox.c and fixed the DBG define
01:38:24__builtinhmm, was changing str[10] to str[9] on chessbox_pgn.c:165 intentional?
01:38:59Bilgusyes the buffer in the struct is only 9
01:39:08__builtinah, ok
01:39:11__builtinhere goes
01:39:56Bilgusso even though it only (dangerously strcat's) like max 5 chars I decided it was prudent to fix

01:55:10__builtingood job :)
02:04:45__builtinhmm, would it be possible for the build server to do builds of all the patches on gerrit?
02:05:09__builtinit would prevent a lot of surprises, for sure
02:05:38__builtinbut, I guess there is the drawback of anyone being able to push to gerrit, and thus execute arbitrary code...
02:06:42__builtinmaybe it could be limited to contributors or committers only

02:18:13__builtin(along with the forums as well)
02:18:39recalAh, okay. Any alternate way to grab the files or shall I just check again tomorrow?
02:19:24__builtinnot really, you could try
02:20:04[Saint]No. No you could not.
02:20:10[Saint]Unless you just want to look at it.
02:20:16recalOkay, thanks. I'll just check tomorrow then.
02:20:32[Saint]All is going to do is supply links to themes hosted on the same server that isn;t responding.

02:53:54__builtinis it showing USB mode?
02:54:00__builtin(on the clip)
02:57:42recalYes, the USB is on whether or not it's actually plugged in or not.
02:58:10recalThen I force reset, and now the USB won't come whether it's plugged in or not.
02:58:22recalThe computer does the acknowledgment beep when it enters, though.
02:59:19__builtinhmm, so the USB plug on your clip's screen is still there even when you unplug it from the computer?
03:00:26__builtinthat /might/ be a rockbox bug; what version are you running? (development or release?)
03:00:55recalIt's now recognized it and asked me to format the drive. Would that brick it completely or is it a good idea for just a plain reinstallation?
03:01:17__builtinyou shouldn't have to
03:01:30__builtinand you really should be running the development builds, the release is way out of date
03:02:09__builtinit has a crapload of bug fixes and improvements
03:02:31recalI'll do a reinstall if I ever get it to work. :P
03:18:33recalUpdate: If I load it from the dualboot to the standard system, the computer recognizes it, but the rockbox utility doesn't. So... I guess it's time for a manual install.

13:40:17prof_wolfffwodz: yes it seems that something related with the flash could produce the read errors, probably TheSeven may help here, how many read errors do you get if you use RB to read the whole disk?
13:40:46 Quit paulk-collins (Quit: Leaving)
13:40:52wodzprof_wolfff: It dies pretty quickly. I posted full log from dmesg last time
13:46:52prof_wolfffwodz: i think it dies when trying to write files, but probably read errors should not halt the device, use this command "dd if=/dev/sdX of=/dev/null bs=65536 conv=sync,noerror" to show read erros, it should ignore read errors and continue reading, anyway you can stop it if you see too many errors...
13:47:31wodzprof_wolfff: This should be with unmodified rb build, right?
13:48:30prof_wolfffis there any issue when reading the flash to play music (no USB involved)?
13:49:18wodzprof_wolfff: Don't know. Never used OF on this unit. But since disk mode does not return any errors I doubt OF will
13:50:01prof_wolfffsorry, i was referring to play music in RB, did you try it?
13:53:17wodzprof_wolfff: I used this device regularly in the past and until 'Grand USB breakage' it was ok. I didn't test it heavily after recovering from messed FTL stage. I played an hour of so of music without issue but thats all.

22:54:35pamaurywodz: it's possible the kernel enforced the range 0..100 already
22:55:15wodzpamaury: It can be that param is unsigned and thus it is sufficient to check upper limit
