03:15:21thcxhg357jcdSo do you have any little Program for windows where i can filter out and delete some specific filetyps. My music folder contains over 70000 tracks.. and i dont want to look in every folder and delete those filse manualy. I will also have to had my folderstructure.. i know i can use the default windows folder search funktion to sort out one filetype before i delete it.. but it will take a huge ammount of hours.. so thank you for your Enga

13:58:07instafreezeHi together, yesterday i have again some problems with my ipod 7.gen 160g. And rockbox... everytime i reinitialize my database it crashes. So a member named Wolfff gibe me the answer to chek the folderstructure for unsopportet files or broken files... now im sure that only .mp3 .wma and folders are on my ipod besides the rockbox firmware... but the database crashes wirh the same error code
13:58:43pamauryinstafreeze: it's not going to be just mp3 or wma
13:58:50pamaurymost likely it is *one particular* file
13:58:53pamaurythat has strange tags
14:00:01instafreezeHey pamaury do you remember to me from yesterday.. thank you for your fast answer
14:01:05instafreezeOk so i will check the tags...
14:01:41instafreezeDo you mean with strange tags like 3_doors_down-let_me_go
14:02:10pamauryprobably not, it might not even be visible to the user and be only a problem with how it is encoded in the file
14:02:31pamaurythat's why I think the only real solution is to add your files to the devices progressively until you find the culprit
14:02:51pamauryis your music organized in folders with few musics per folder ?
14:04:01instafreezeNo i sort like : genre->artist->album and than the tracks
14:04:50pamauryok good, it should be easy then
14:05:05instafreeze^^ let's see
14:05:11pamauryI would suggest the following: erase all the music on your device, make sure database does not crash
14:05:27pamaurythen add about half of your top folders (ie half the genre)
14:05:36pamaurylet the database run
14:05:56pamauryif it crashes: you know the file is in the first half
14:05:56pamauryit it does not crasg, you know the file is the second half
14:06:20pamauryif it was in the first half, now remove half of the artist and see if it makes a difference, etc, etc
14:07:16instafreezeOk.. i try it

16:59:20***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
17:47:15pamaurylebellium: but there is much left to do on the bootloader, the only missing functionality is to suspend after idle in the boot menu
17:47:24pamaurybut I can't make suspend work for some reason
17:47:46lebelliumthere is not* you mean
17:48:07pamaury*there isn't much
17:48:58lebelliumwell, it would be nice to be able to power off from the boot menu
17:49:11lebelliumand it would be nice that there is a default choice
17:49:15pamauryyeah I can add that in the debug menu
17:49:20pamaurydefault choice?
17:49:21lebelliumso that you don't have to select rockbox everytime
17:49:27pamauryit remembers the last choice
17:49:33lebelliumit doesn't
17:49:43lebelliumunless you have a bootloader version you didn't provide :)
17:49:44pamauryit does, maybe you don't have the last version
17:49:54pamaurybut it's been there for some time
17:50:15lebelliumyou never offered to test it then
17:50:29pamauryhum, I think I did
17:50:42pamaurythough I remember a time when you were busy and said later
17:50:50pamaurymaybe I forgot after that
17:52:03lebelliummay be that
17:52:33lebelliumso you have a version where it remembers the last choice and when you turn off rockbox, it turns off the whole device instead of getting back to the boot screen?
17:52:52pamauryno it goes back to boot menu, but it remembers the last choice
17:53:27lebelliumand how do you change your choice?
17:54:02pamauryyou select something else the menu...
17:54:22lebelliumso it shows the menu everytime and there is a timeout for the default choice?
17:55:18lebelliumand is it possible to turn it off instead of getting back to the boot menu?
17:55:30lebelliumI mean, can you change that behavior?
17:56:00pamauryit theory is suspen on idle, but suspend does not work, I don't know why :(
17:56:00pamauryYes but I think at the moment that's a bad idea because on usb plug is does not go back to the main menu
17:56:21pamauryso rockbox needs to be made aware that on usb plug is should stop, and there is no code for that currently
17:56:35pamauryI will add an option in the debug menu to power down though
17:57:28 Quit dys (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
17:59:06lebelliumwhy can't it remain in Rockbox when USB is plugged in?
18:00:59lebelliumcan you display the bootloader version somewhere at startup or on the bootscreen?

18:05:17pamaurylebellium: because rockbox runs from internal storage, so you can't enable mass storage
18:05:54pamaurythe only way to start usb mass storage is to umount the partition, thus to stop rockbox
18:06:28lebelliumbut isn't it the same on the other targets?
18:06:44lebelliumI mean, rockbox doesn't always run from internal storage?
18:06:56pamauryyes but on native it is entirely in memory
18:07:16pamauryon linux that doesn't work like this, a process is backed by a file
18:10:49pamaurymaybe it is possible but I am not sure it is wise. The simplest option is for rockbox to stop, let the bootloader or sony's stuff handle usb and then start rockbox again
18:11:38lebelliumon yp-r0 when you plug in while in Rockbox it just charges the battery
18:11:43lebelliumI'm not sure it's much a problem
18:12:53pamaurybut you want access to usb no?
18:12:57lebelliumI think it's more important to power off the device properly. The user can understand that he first has to power off the device before plugging the USB cable
18:14:26lebelliumlogically you want access to USB yes, but I never got a complain about that for YP-R0
18:16:33 Join dys [0] (
18:26:35pamauryhum, apparently Sony changed the way to suspend
18:27:02pamauryon some devices it was /proc/pm but now it is /sys/power/state
18:34:49pamauryhaha, now suspend works
18:39:03pamauryhum but /proc/pm is still used for shutdown, this is weird
18:44:29pamauryhaha, so /proc/pm can also be used to change the clock speed apparently
18:45:12*pamaury cannot match the kernel source code with the userspace...

20:45:19lebelliumso "suspend" is the same as what OF does?
20:48:39lebelliumafter a few hours it fully turns off itself
20:49:10lebelliumso that you don't stay in suspend mode for weeks if you don't use your device
20:49:36pamauryok, well the bootloader does not do that at the moment, it simply suspends
20:49:47pamaury(unless you select shutdown in tools)
20:51:16lebelliumwell, not perfect but it looks quite usable now
20:51:31lebelliumdo you mind if I post it to some forums?

21:37:47lebelliumyes, as soon as I select Rockbox
