[06:21:05] <jthornton> I have a tool turret sim that uses classicladder and it just struck me that may be a good candidate to include in the configs. http://gnipsel.com/linuxcnc/configs/cl-turret.zip
[06:22:41] <jthornton> http://imagebin.org/282854
[06:23:13] <jthornton> although I should change to a lathe for that
[07:10:59] <jthornton> better now as a lathe http://gnipsel.com/files/linuxcnc/configs/cl-turret-sim.zip
[10:49:54] <norbert> Dewey Garret: Are you here?
[10:50:42] <cradek> dgarr: ^
[10:51:15] <norbert> Does anyone know, why all remap samples has gone away from config folder?
[10:51:17] <cradek> norbert: (if you use the actual nick, often the irc client will notify)
[10:51:33] <norbert> OK, Thanks
[10:51:34] <cradek> norbert: this was explained on the developer list
[10:52:07] <norbert> cradek: Sorry I am ashamed, but I am not on that list till now
[10:52:12] <cradek> ... but I don't think he deleted anything
[10:52:21] <cradek> did you find the message?
[10:52:38] <cradek> a good archive is here: http://news.gmane.org/gmane.linux.distributions.emc.devel
[10:52:48] <norbert> cradek: I will look
[10:54:32] <norbert> cradek: Ah it is now under axis/remap
[10:57:50] <dgarr> norbert: if you haven't noticed, please see commit message in http://git.linuxcnc.org/gitweb?p=linuxcnc.git;a=commitdiff;h=ed8606f1ca6086d252d64fba80d75855bddfa38e
[10:59:13] <dgarr> with these changes, we should be able to get your configs to run from a deb installed from the buildbot so users don't have to build a rip every time
[11:00:03] <norbert> dgarr: I did read that, but unfortunately I could not see the reason, with you explanation it is getting shini in my darkness;-)
[14:21:49] <alex_joni> skunkworks: yeah, but it helps if you put it down :D
[14:22:16] <alex_joni> and it would be even more awesome if you put the two videos next to each other - so one can really see the difference in speed/time
[14:39:28] <andypugh> In a Joints_axes_N configuration, would one expect loadrt [EMCMOT]EMCMOT servo_period_nsec=[EMCMOT]SERVO_PERIOD num_joints=[TRAJ]AXES to become num_joints = [KINS]JOINTS?
[14:40:24] <andypugh> Similarly, is the intention of [KINS]KINEMATICS that the value be used in the HAL file "loadrt trivkins" line, or does the entry have further significance?
[15:34:42] <seb_kuzminsky> andypugh: i would think "yes, num_joints=[KINS]JOINTS" and "yes, loadrt [KINS]KINEMATICS" and "no, [KINS]KINEMATICS is not used anywhere else"
[17:49:40] <andypugh> Gah!
[17:49:49] <andypugh> We have INI files that share a HAL file.
[17:51:47] <andypugh> So, if you convert an INI file, populating KINS[KINEMATICS] with what you find in the HAL file, then change the HAL file to use [KINS]KINEMATICS, with the next INI file you convert the clue as to which kinematics to load has gone.
[17:53:16] <andypugh> I can see two ways round this, either a "magic comment" inserted in the HAL file, or a search through the backup versions.
[17:53:49] <andypugh> I think I will go with "magic comment" and check back here later to see if anyone disagrees.
[17:54:51] <Tom_itx> seb_kuzminsky i can ask in linuxhelp but since you offered the other evening, i thought id bug you one more time
[17:55:09] <Tom_itx> for F *.html; resulted in: -bash: syntax error near unexpected token `*.html'
[17:55:32] <Tom_itx> i'm just finding time to get back to it..
[17:58:08] <dgarr> for F in *.html ; do etc the in is important
[17:58:33] <Tom_itx> i didn't paste the whole line
[17:58:41] <Tom_itx> just where the error occurred
[17:59:01] <Tom_itx> i'll try that
[17:59:03] <dgarr> the 'in' is important for f in
[17:59:36] <Tom_itx> much better thanks
[17:59:42] <dgarr> np
[18:17:11] <Tom_itx> also thanks seb_kuzminsky
[18:22:11] <andypugh> dgarr: Does your config cleanup include issues like gantry/gantry-hs.ini referencing custom_postgui.hal, which doesn't exist?
[18:26:27] <dgarr> no -- that config is not a runnable-on-any-machine sim since it uses a parport, i'm more focused on updating sims that should run on almost any computer, you are welcome to fix it if you know what is needed or wrong with it
[18:26:57] <andypugh> OK, I just didn't want to fix something that was already fixed
[18:28:16] <dgarr> i don't have a parport on the laptop i use for this work:P

[21:24:19] <Tom_itx> i never understood logging joins and parts
[21:29:05] <skunkworks_> ?
[21:30:00] <Tom_itx> i took them out of mine
[21:30:02] <Tom_itx> zlog
[21:34:34] <skunkworks_> ah - I see
[21:34:49] <Tom_itx> easier to sort out what's going on
[21:34:52] <Tom_itx> i think
[21:35:43] <Tom_itx> i suppose if somebody was looking for someone they could find out when they left
