00:44:50speachyfound yet more problems with voice generation.
00:45:14speachyironically this one might have affected good 'ol English the most.
00:54:50Strife89I wonder if icypee's e260 could have a short somewhere
00:56:41Strife89Bad Power button pad also strikes me as still plausible
01:14:58speachyand two independent off-by-one errors that cancelled each other out
01:15:53speachybut one of those errors wasn't present in the code that generated the binary voicelist that rbutil relied on

08:50:31fs-bluebotGerrit review #2572 at : keyboard add ability to specify temporary custom layouts by William Wilgus
08:51:38speachynot at a quick glance
08:53:13speachyI swear the language/voice stuff in rockbox is a giant onion. Many layers, each making me cry.
08:54:33__Bilgus_I mean thats not a really big surprise its a pretty complex system
08:55:10speachyI wonder if the android keyboard might break because the custom layout includes a char not in the android default?
08:55:26speachy(given the state of our android port that's probably quite moot..)

09:42:41__Bilgus_speachy the keyboard layouts are dummies for android
09:44:20__Bilgus_it just has to follow the prototype but it doesn't even use load_kbd
09:45:04__Bilgus_ I was worried about the same and was prepared to do different versions for Player/ android but Player is going away and android is locked to whatever the underlying OS assigns

12:16:53speachyyes and no. I think it would need to be done on a case-by-case basis because folks may want to record actual speech instead of using a tts engine
12:18:05speachyStrife89, the NDK portion is about the same as the usual crossbuilds. the SDK portion.. who knows. probably isn't terribly bad.

12:46:37__builtinyou can dual-boot, yes

16:50:54ShadowHntri had a question again about the iPod 6G Classic
16:51:30ShadowHntrit's firmware has an LBA addressing bug that limits it to 128GB. the Rockbox firmware gets around that. Will that also apply to the iPod original firmware when dualbooting?
16:52:33ShadowHntrI want to know because the hard drive in mine has failed, and I can get as far as loading the Rockbox bootloader, but it can't find the firmware file and gets stuck. I want to get an iFlash device and load it up with 256GB or more storage. Can that be done?

21:22:56speachybleb, it depends on the target/device. Generally speaking if the sd card is where the .rockbox directory lives, then you're not going to have great success hotswapping things.
22:20:31***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
22:45:23blebmakes sense
22:45:56blebdo you know if any devices work particularly well with hot-swapping?
22:46:39blebit would be great if removing the sd card paused the music, and inerting a new one started playing the new music right away, like a cd player
22:47:25blebi guess rockbox doesn't do this by default, but if it handles hot-swapping gracefully it seems like you could implement that functionality without getting too much into the weeds
23:17:01 Join saratoga [0] (
23:17:41saratogathe sandisk players don't store the .rockbox folder on sd, so you can hotswap easily
23:17:58saratogaits not going to randomly pick files on the new card and start playing them though
23:18:09speachysaratoga, unless you use the multiboot firmwarae because you don't want to wear out the onboard flash
23:18:12saratogayou have to actually select a playlist or folder or whatever
23:25:58Strife89If you use the Database, you'd likely want to stop using it, because otherwise it's only got the data for one card
23:27:05Strife89I think you could *technically* hotswap while playing a track as long as the device has enough RAM to load entire track(s) in advance, but this is inadvisable.
23:29:04saratogaa feature i always wanted but never got around to trying to implement was to recursively merge the sd card and the main storage into one volume
23:29:24saratogai remember XBMC doing this in the early 2000s and it was absolutely awesome
23:34:09speachyit's a lot easier to do when you have a full OS with gobs of RAM below you.
