[00:12:13] <memleak> night guize
[09:09:17] <skunkworks> wow - I have not seen the runs the previous program - not loaded bug at all.
[09:25:25] <cradek> wonder if that pendant has something to do with it.
[09:25:42] <cradek> I was hoping for a simpler how-to-reproduce, ideally using sim
[09:39:23] <pcw_home> Not sure if it helps, but I can reproduce something similar
[09:39:36] <cradek> it sure might
[09:41:00] <pcw_home> if you try to load a gcode file that has some kind of error the old preview remains (but the new gcode is selected)
[09:41:01] <pcw_home> (just a visual thing)
[09:45:49] <cradek> hm, yuck
[09:46:07] <cradek> he talks about loading 3D_Chips though, which I doubt has an error unless he has added one
[09:48:02] <pcw_home> thats the one I tried
[09:48:56] <pcw_home> tool table error (probably something I have done)
[09:49:15] <cradek> like tool does not exist?
[09:51:07] <skunkworks> I have been flipping between master and robs new TP and have not seen it.. Using sim axis
[09:51:49] <skunkworks> I have seen what pcw_home talks about.. but I didn't really care because I had to fix the error and reload...
[09:52:10] <cradek> his long delay when touching off is probably related to multiple guis interfering with one another. I have seen people end up with this pretty easily using pendants, especially those with analog inputs that can make constant noise
[09:52:34] <cradek> that he spent five hours debugging it doesn't help me - it would have been better to explain what he tried
[09:53:20] <pcw_home> Yes missing tool
[09:53:44] <cradek> pcw_home: but you do at least get an error, right?
[09:54:06] <pcw_home> yes
[11:14:28] <archivist> not enough memory also gives slow response
[11:15:23] <archivist> userland gets into swap
[11:28:18] <seb_kuzminsky> http://dilbert.com/strips/comic/1995-06-24/
[11:29:59] <cradek> I don't think his problem is not enough ram, but it's true we don't know anything about what equipment he is using
[12:28:47] <seb_kuzminsky> i want to push xenomai packages (kernel & userspace) to the linuxcnc.org deb archive
[12:29:02] <seb_kuzminsky> this would let us build xenomai packages in the buildbot
[12:29:18] <seb_kuzminsky> i'd use newer versions of the xenomai packages that are currently running rip in the buildbot
[12:30:15] <seb_kuzminsky> these xenomai debs are built by zultron's awesome build system: https://github.com/zultron/debian-linuxcnc-autobuild
[12:30:25] <seb_kuzminsky> any objections?
[12:34:07] <skunkworks> none...
[12:36:44] <skunkworks> :)
[13:08:06] <cradek> of course not
[13:11:22] <skunkworks> previous program problem... could axis and the interp get out of sync? something hanging up that the interp from seeing the new file?
[13:18:33] <cradek> seems like it must
[13:44:02] <skunkworks> he is doing so much stuff with halui - I wonder if something gets hung up..
[13:51:42] <cradek> yes I really bet so
[13:51:55] <cradek> he should work on narrowing it down
[13:52:45] <cradek> with a previous guy who had a halui+pendant interaction problem, just turning on task-issue debug showed that there were constant bogus messages being sent
[13:53:00] <cradek> I forgot which message it was exactly - jog abort maybe?
[13:54:33] <skunkworks> I vaugly remember that...
[16:17:50] <KGB-linuxcnc> 03Norbert Schechner 05master 9c339d7 06linuxcnc 10(13 files in 4 dirs) gmoccapy_0_9_9_9 - tool change with tool length measurement * 14http://git.linuxcnc.org/?p=linuxcnc.git;a=commitdiff;h=9c339d7
[17:14:21] <seb_kuzminsky> no agenda page for this saturday's meeting, i guess that means no agenda and no meeting
[17:16:45] <skunkworks> seb_kuzminsky: thanks for all your work on the ub!
[17:17:13] <seb_kuzminsky> all thanks should go to zultron and michael, they did the heavy lifting
[17:18:29] <seb_kuzminsky> has anyone tried running linuxcnc through cppcheck? it's another static analysis tool (like coverity or clang) that i haven't tried yet
[17:19:24] <skunkworks> Sure!
[18:36:01] <CaptHindsight> http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=E350M1 <7K nS max latency (25uS thread) with factory EFI/BIOS and old 10.04 install + upgrade to emc 2.5
[19:46:20] <skunkworks> micges: have you had a chance to look at the 7i80 issue? (no pressure)
[19:48:10] <micges> I am slowly (got many real life stuff last days)
[20:28:01] <skunkworks> micges: no rush.. I saw the sewing machines - very cool
[20:32:15] <micges> yeah that too... we retrofitted it and then it took few additional days for mechanical fixing ;)
[20:32:48] <micges> it works from sunday at full speed 24/7
[20:33:20] <mozmck> micges: that sewing machine is quite interesting. Does the bobbin underneath stay synchronized electronically?
[20:33:39] <micges> yes
[20:34:09] <mozmck> neat. I have thought of building something like that for my wife as she does a lot of sewing and embroidery.
[20:34:16] <micges> enc from top is wired to step input of bottom
[20:34:44] <mozmck> directly?
[20:34:48] <micges> yes
[20:35:02] <micges> and enc from bottom goes to 7i77
[20:35:11] <mozmck> sounds simple. Does it have to "home"?
[20:35:38] <micges> yes, manually at specific sequence
[20:35:54] <mozmck> I've done my wifes sewing machine repair for a while now (need to do more right now!), so I'm familiar with the operation.
[20:36:13] <micges> yes I see
[20:36:42] <micges> here problem is with header
[20:36:58] <mozmck> hmm, My question was not clear. do you have to "home" the needle to the bobbin somehow? (That may be what you answered anyway)
[20:37:06] <mozmck> header?
[20:37:12] <micges> it is chinese copy of chinese copy of germany high end machine
[20:37:22] <mozmck> I see :)
[20:37:44] <mozmck> high quality
[20:37:45] <micges> top section with needle
[20:38:48] <micges> after switch on you must home top to sensor, home bottom to sensor, and then again top and bottom to be sure
[20:40:20] <mozmck> Hmm, my question is still ambiguous. Are you talking about the XY position of the top and bottom? I'm thinking of the rotary postion so the hook does not hit the needle. I would guess that needs to be set on power-up as well.
[20:40:55] <micges> yes, rotary position
[20:41:11] <mozmck> Anyhow, I've never seen any machines like that, but had thought of building one.
[20:41:49] <micges> remember me in few days, I'll send you some pics
[20:42:29] <mozmck> That would be great! I need another project :-D
[20:43:22] <micges> it's chinese simple but it works very good at least for X and Y axes
