00:15:40Asarahey guys, what would y'all say is the recommended mp3 player for rockbox?
00:15:52Asaramy only requirement is that it support an SD card (128gb sdxc)
00:38:14 Quit pamaury (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
00:42:21[Saint]Personally, I would say that you absolutely don't need removable storage of that capacity, or at all, as there's no way you're ever going to be able to exhaust ~120GB of media even in several days.
00:42:33[Saint]And I would recommend the iPod Classic.
00:42:48[Saint]You can very easily and cheaply convert them to solid state media.
00:43:23[Saint]And they are the most powerful yet commonly available, and well built, target available.
00:43:35[Saint](when price point is factored in)
00:45:28[Saint]For about $100 (on top of the purchase price), you can easily convert them to solid state storage and add an extended capacity battery in the internal void you create by removing the HDD and adding the significantly smaller solid state media adapter plate.
00:46:43[Saint]Don't pay any mind to the main page in terms of how well this target is or isn't supported. It is only listed as such on a technicality and it is in fact very usable and very stable, and very performant.
00:51:45 Quit ender (Quit: It's not DNS / There's no way it's DNS / It was DNS)
00:56:01Asara[Saint]: Honestly don't want an apple product
00:56:05Asarajust as personal preference
00:58:10[Saint]Sacrificing what is quite clearly the best engineered platform available (without dipping in to the dedicated "HD" players that come at what can be an order of magnitude more expense) on the back of a personal preference when you have the option of discarding the original firmware entirely is something I see as misguided, but, so be it.
00:59:17AsaraI'd agree its misguided, but I really really don't want any apple hardware :P
00:59:39[Saint]To get the same level of build quality and engineering you're looking at the iBasso or HiFiMan players.
01:00:08[Saint]Which target the audiophile market and are specced much higher than Rockbox audio actually supports.
01:00:28[Saint]And cost a literal order of magnitude more.
01:00:47AsaraI currently have a Fuze+, but the sd slot has stopped working
01:00:50[Saint]Otherwise you're looking at the Happy Meal Toy type players, like the SanDisks.
01:01:02AsaraSo I don't really care about how they look, as long as I can stick my music library onto it
01:01:10[Saint]Which are shittily engineered and stop working if you look at them wrong.
01:01:27AsaraAnd I take that music library everywhere (road trips, travel, etc), which is why I want that 128 in sd memory
01:01:31[Saint]And will arbitrarily brick themselves.
01:02:03[Saint]This is of course if you want a well established and stable port.
01:02:04 Join alexweis_ [0] (~alexweiss@2001:18e8:2:28b6:ad87:25c1:18c4:f00)
01:02:39[Saint]There's other options available that are well engineered and have expandable storage, but their ports are not mature.
01:03:32[Saint]Without knowing what price point you're looking at, it's difficult to say.
01:03:59Asaraup to $100 I'd say
01:04:06 Quit alexweissman (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
01:04:22[Saint]For a non-iPod non-shitty-Happy-Meal-toy player, the best bet would be a Creative Zen or Zen X-Fi
01:04:28[Saint]I see.
01:04:56[Saint]Yeah, that drastically limits your options. Start looking for a refurbished Fuze or Clip, I guess.
01:04:59AsaraBring me a happy meal!
01:05:55[Saint]You can't purchase any of those new anymore, unless you get _reaaaaaaaaaaaally_ lucky, and even the refurbished players are selling for more now than they retailed for.
01:06:09[Saint]$100 really doesn't buy a lot in the DAP market anymore.
01:07:16[Saint]If you don't care about how it looks, there's DIY options available.
01:07:22AsaraDIY options?
01:07:26Asarathat sounds like it would be up my alley
01:07:54[Saint]You can slap a 3.5" touchscreen and a LiPo on a Rpi Zero or ODROID C2, for instance.
01:08:07[Saint]Then run Rockbox as our SDL app.
01:09:42[Saint]With the Rpi Zero and a generic 3.5" resistive touchscreen from Alibaba et al, and a generic no-name LiPo you could so it for under $100.
01:12:44AsaraAlright I'm going to think about it.
01:12:50[Saint]There's even rpi cases specced to incorporate generic 3.5" displays.
01:12:52AsaraThanks [Saint]
01:13:12[Saint]No problems. If you idle around perhaps someone else will have more options to suggest for you.
01:13:19[Saint]But the price point makes things difficult.
01:13:28AsaraYeah I'll chill in here.
01:13:32AsaraI didn't realize how expensive these things were
01:13:37[Saint]Awesome, and, welcome.

16:17:41pamaurywodz: something I have noticed is that it *seems* the produced g++ statically links libstd++ by default, which is a waste of space. There is probably an option for that, I guess
16:18:27wodzpamaury: Since I need it strictly to compile gdb this is not a problem (as long as it produces correct binaries)
16:18:43pamauryon the other hand, it may be a good thing since the stability of libstd++ is dubious at best in this case, since we are using vastly different compiler versions

19:18:33r100hi all! so i've got two ipod classics; one 80GB (1G) and one 160GB (3G), both with the latest bootloader 1.0 and recent rockbox build. When I open 'disk info' on both devices, the 80GB (Samsung HS081HA) shows to have power management and noise management enabled, while the 160GB (Toshiba MK1634GAL) shows these features as unsupported. Is this something that cannot be done, or is it done by the drive itself already?
