[07:16:27] <KGB-linuxcnc> 03jthornton 05v2.5_branch fad9717 06linuxcnc 10docs/src/hal/pyvcp.txt * Docs: fix incorrect example and add info about tabs
[09:03:15] <alex_joni> anyone with a BBB around?
[09:19:24] <kwallace> alex_joni: I have a BBB, but not a lot of experience with it.
[09:22:27] <alex_joni> kwallace: np, figure some stuff out..
[09:22:53] <alex_joni> like I need to run the overlay before loadrt of the bb_gpio driver
[09:24:37] <kwallace> Yeah, that's beyond my experience so far.
[10:51:24] <seb_kuzm1nsky> made my first actual part on my bridgeport running linuxcnc on ubuntu precise last night
[10:51:33] <seb_kuzm1nsky> no problems at all
[11:01:09] <pcw_home> rtai?
[11:07:07] <cradek> yay!
[11:08:45] <skunkworks_> so - the pci stuff was the issue?
[11:08:57] <skunkworks_> (with mesa)
[11:11:50] <seb_kuzminsky> yeah, that's with the shabby/memleak rtai on 3.4.53, with a 5i22 driving the mill
[11:12:09] <cradek> 2.5 branch?
[11:12:18] <seb_kuzminsky> pfff, master
[11:12:24] <seb_kuzminsky> ;-)
[11:12:30] <cradek> :-P
[11:12:36] <seb_kuzminsky> i'll try 2.5 next
[11:12:55] <cradek> that really is great news
[11:14:01] <seb_kuzminsky> skunkworks_: yeah, the problem was the pci memcpy thing that pcw_home fixed for us
[11:15:45] <cradek> I still don't understand how he knew that was the problem. it's like magic.
[11:17:27] <seb_kuzminsky> skunkworks_: the fix is in 2.5 and master
[13:03:13] <seb_kuzminsky> oh, and master builds on the new ubuntu saucy salamander 13.10 that came out today, and runtests passes
[13:03:43] <andypugh> 14.04 will be what? Turgid Tit?
[13:04:06] <seb_kuzminsky> trashy tramp
[13:06:50] <andypugh> Nah, it's got to be an animal
[13:07:29] <andypugh> Thaumic Thrush, maybe?
[13:07:58] <seb_kuzminsky> thrush is some kind of disease (in addition to a bird), right?
[13:08:18] <archivist> yes
[13:08:25] <seb_kuzminsky> has anyone tried the rtai-on-3.4.53 debs?
[13:08:37] <archivist> terrible terrapin
[13:09:24] <seb_kuzminsky> maybe we should make them available in the www.linuxcnc.org deb archive and request wider testing? with an eye towards a new Precise live cd if it looks like they work
[13:38:04] <cradek> it would be really great to have a new cd
[14:27:44] <CaptHindsight> as of a week or two ago the Shabbyx branch of RTAI was the only working version, the main RTAI.org repo is getting updated but it still wasn't working
[14:28:40] <CaptHindsight> not sure when the official branch will include all the updates and be working well
[16:04:28] <alex_joni> http://juve.ro/blog-files/projects/01382040758/DSC_2736.jpg
[16:09:12] <andypugh> It's like a lathe, only smaller :-)
[16:09:18] <andypugh> Oh, and a Beaglebone?
[16:10:57] <andypugh> What's in the driver box?
[16:11:27] <seb_kuzminsky> cute :-)
[16:11:52] <seb_kuzminsky> it's a My First Lathe for your kid!
[16:13:10] <andypugh> I assume that is the first of the Parport-capes?
[16:15:35] <alex_joni> andypugh: you're correct
[16:15:53] <alex_joni> driver box came with the little lathe ;)
[16:19:38] <andypugh> Sherline?
[16:22:42] <alex_joni> nope.. Unimate ML
[16:22:47] <alex_joni> www.thecooltool.com
[16:23:02] <alex_joni> sorry.. Unimat ;)
[16:23:18] <alex_joni> Unimate are robots .. or used to be;)
[16:25:24] <alex_joni> (trivia: same company that built the PUMA ;)
[16:27:49] <andypugh> Unimate invented the industrial robot, I think.
[16:34:50] <alex_joni> Unimation
[16:34:59] <alex_joni> Unimate was the name of the first industrial robot
[16:35:06] <alex_joni> '61 or so
[16:45:54] <skunkworks_> I have a unimate
[16:46:20] <skunkworks_> (puma)
[16:46:28] <skunkworks_> and no - I don't have it running yet...
[16:59:13] <alex_joni> ;)
