[04:37:23] <memleak> the LinuxCNC branch of RTAI i opened up only seems to compile on one of my systems, syntax errors in ranlib
[04:38:10] <memleak> the magical RTAI branch that the 3.4.55 kernel that seb's debs use is not hosted anywhere anymore so im glad theres a backup..
[04:38:38] <memleak> that truly is the only working RTAI code atm for 3.x kernels, nothing else
[04:39:10] <memleak> i need to rewrite the linuxcnc branch again and rebase it off of the git snapshot
[04:40:37] <memleak> the one used to correlation with the 3.4.55-2 rtai kernels^ so in other words, dont use the linuxcnc branch. i thought it worked until i tried a different system.
[08:01:25] <skunkworks_> hmm - is there a way around the 16 limit of ddt's?
[08:01:34] <skunkworks_> I suppose - use the source?
[08:02:15] <skunkworks_> 9 axis -> 2 ddt's per axis...
[08:04:10] <skunkworks> hmm - so it isn't a limitation in the ddt.comp...
[08:40:17] <skunkworks_> oh - so maybe you can't have over 16 named hal components because loadrt ddt count=19 works
[08:41:58] <archivist> 16 seems a low number for names

[09:58:26] <cradek> ok, fixed
[10:06:20] <micges> cradek: what did he do?
[10:07:43] <cradek> 2.6 and master were pointing to the same ref
[10:07:58] <cradek> I am not sure what he did to cause that
[10:59:47] <skunkworks> http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,27041.msg191141.html#msg191141
[11:20:04] <seb_kuzminsky> thanks for fixing that, cradek
[11:26:31] <cradek> welcome
[12:03:28] <dgarr> skunkworks: a patch (for test) to increase allowed number of names= items (20): http://www.panix.com/~dgarrett/stuff/0001-comp.g-allow-more-names-items-20.patch
[12:30:51] <skunkworks_> I just converted it to un-named!! :)
[12:30:55] <skunkworks_> I will give it a try
[12:32:04] <skunkworks_> cradek: you wrote a patch for adding motion type as a hal pin.. they added it to machinekit and someone tested it. seems to work as expected.
[12:32:40] <skunkworks_> (using it with a velocity mode extruder - extruding only on g1,2,3 moves...)
[13:01:13] <mozmck> skunkworks_: "...it is the best we can do and still have it work in Linux. We do have some limitations because we have to code the least common denominator."
[13:02:29] <mozmck> skunkworks_: ^^ from: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/mach1mach2cnc/conversations/messages/144475
[13:09:53] <skunkworks_> wow
[13:10:15] <mozmck> :) figured you'd find that amusing.
[13:11:15] <Connor> skunkworks_: Huh? What's that all about
[13:12:22] <skunkworks> Connor, mach4 demo has been released.
[13:12:30] <skunkworks> reading the carnage..
[13:12:49] <Connor> So, what was the deal with still have it work in linux ?
[13:13:39] <skunkworks> someone was complaining about the new screen editor - brian said - he did the best he could do because it also has to work on linux.. (linux is the least common denominator'
[13:13:45] <mozmck> Mach4 is supposed to run in linux at some point.
[13:14:24] <skunkworks> mozmck, have you guy been able to play with it yet?
[13:14:39] <Connor> Oh geez.. Mach4 on linux?
[13:14:43] <skunkworks> what are you guys going to do if the printer driver isn't supported?
[13:14:46] <mozmck> no, I haven't had time - or much interest.
[13:14:52] <Connor> That's a disaster waiting to happen
[13:15:15] <mozmck> Well, they "say" there's going to be a printer driver, but who know when that will be.
[13:15:51] <mozmck> We plan to support Linuxcnc as soon as I can get some other projects done and get to work on it.
[13:15:58] <skunkworks> great!
[13:16:17] <skunkworks> the new tp should really help plasma machines too
[13:16:44] <Connor> Who's "We" mozmck?
[13:16:53] <mozmck> Yes, I've been watching that. I have 2 kids now and one on the way, so my time is less than it used to be :(
[13:17:05] <mozmck> http://www.candcnc.com
[13:17:12] <skunkworks> holy smpke - when did that happen?
[13:17:15] <skunkworks> smokes
[13:17:27] <mozmck> in my spare time :)
[13:17:53] <mozmck> my boy is 8 months now.
[13:17:57] <Connor> mozmck: Wow, No offense.. but that website looks a bit... dated...
[13:18:27] <mozmck> heh, I didn't write it.
[13:18:28] <skunkworks> Meet connor - he does web development ;)
[13:18:44] <skunkworks> (really - he does)
[13:19:10] <mozmck> My boss did the website, and he likes flashy colors etc. We plan to update it, have started, but... hasn't happened yet.
[13:19:36] <skunkworks> mozmck, http://electronicsam.com/images/house/DSC_3193.JPG
[13:19:36] <Connor> skunkworks: Dang, I'm surprised you remember.. :)
[13:20:00] <mozmck> cute!
[13:20:01] <skunkworks> I just happend to see your post on hoss's thread.. (your sig)
[13:20:30] <skunkworks> (and you thought you had to worry about the nsa...)
[13:20:32] <Connor> skunkworks: Ahh.. yea.. Free Advertising..
[13:20:51] <mozmck> Connor: freelance?
[13:21:05] <Connor> mozmck: Biggest issue,, multiple scroll bars..
[13:21:32] <Connor> mozmck: Self Employed.. Me and Wife.. though, things have changed now that she was diagnosed with Firbo
[13:21:44] <mozmck> skunkworks: Stella just over 2 now? Our Ruth is 2 and a couple months.
[13:21:57] <skunkworks> 19 months
[13:22:27] <mozmck> Connor: I remember. Has she tried any natural stuff?
[13:23:13] <skunkworks> actually 20 months
[13:23:13] <Connor> Natural as in weed? :)
[13:23:28] <skunkworks> Mmmm natural....
[13:24:34] <Connor> No, no weed.. but, we've tried all kinds of other stuff..
[13:24:35] <mozmck> no, as in not patented drugs you have to pay through the nose for!
[13:25:37] <mozmck> I don't know much about Fibro, but my wife had Lymes and it was cured as far as we can tell (several years now) with Vitamin C IV therapy.
[13:27:46] <skunkworks> we just had the stomach flu go through here... Didn't know such a little thing could vomit so much...
[13:31:57] <Connor> Who maintains gmoccapy ?
[13:32:21] <skunkworks> Norbert Schechner
[13:32:36] <Connor> He frequent IRC ?
[13:33:06] <skunkworks> sometimes.. I seem to remember someone asking about that spindle +/- recently
[13:33:34] <Connor> So, I'm not missing anything...
[13:33:42] <Connor> it's just not there...
[13:35:11] <Connor> ONE of these days I'm going to get my touch screen mounted and switch... so, I was just checking it out...
[13:48:19] <cradek> skunkworks: hmm, wonder who I wrote that for and why
[13:55:03] <skunkworks> andy had asked - maybe? I remember reading it on the list..
[13:59:34] <skunkworks> cradek, oh - it was only partly.. it was motion mode in hal dated april 15th
[14:09:24] <cradek> seb_kuzminsky: new feature, but trivial: 2.6 or master? http://timeguy.com/cradek-files/emc/0001-Add-a-pin-giving-the-type-of-motion-rapid-line-arc.patch
[14:09:35] <cradek> I think andy wanted it for some real application
[14:10:08] <cradek> I don't remember what happened after I wrote it
[14:18:38] <skunkworks> cradek, thanks!! (seems like something I would use - just don't know what for.. :) )
[15:43:05] <seb_kuzminsky> cradek: looks safe enough
[15:44:24] <KGB-linuxcnc> 03Chris Radek 052.6 a532de0 06linuxcnc 10src/emc/motion/control.c 10src/emc/motion/mot_priv.h 10src/emc/motion/motion.c Add a pin giving the type of motion (rapid/line/arc) * 14http://git.linuxcnc.org/?p=linuxcnc.git;a=commitdiff;h=a532de0
[15:46:14] <seb_kuzminsky> cradek: i just noticed we have both a tag and a branch called v2.6.0-pre1
[15:46:43] <seb_kuzminsky> maybe that's why we get the "remote: warning: refname 'v2.6.0-pre1' is ambiguous.
[15:47:01] <seb_kuzminsky> i wonder what will happen if i try to remove the branch on glo...
[15:49:04] <KGB-linuxcnc> 05v2.6.0-pre1 97dc4a2 06linuxcnc 04. branch deleted * 14http://git.linuxcnc.org/?p=linuxcnc.git;a=commitdiff;h=97dc4a2
[15:50:27] <seb_kuzminsky> imma try making a fresh clone of glo and see if "v2.6.0-pre1" resolves to just the tag now
[15:52:55] <cradek> weird, how did that happen?
[15:55:55] <seb_kuzminsky> yeah, removing the branch (with "git push origin :refs/heads/v2.6.0-pre1") left the tag behind, so as far as i can tell the problem's fixed now
[15:56:05] <seb_kuzminsky> keep an eye on the git output next time you push
[15:56:13] <seb_kuzminsky> oh here, i can merge 2.6 to master and push that....
[15:56:44] <KGB-linuxcnc> 03Sebastian Kuzminsky 05master b195ae2 06linuxcnc Merge remote-tracking branch 'origin/2.6' * 14http://git.linuxcnc.org/?p=linuxcnc.git;a=commitdiff;h=b195ae2
[15:56:50] <seb_kuzminsky> yeah, no complaint that time
[16:04:43] <cradek> yay, thanks for figuring out that mystery
