[07:37:32] <Tom_itx> micges_`, i see 3.1 and master but not 3.2 yet
[08:20:56] <micges> Tom_itx: master is the newest code which will be 3.2
[09:01:40] <seb_kuzminsky> jthornton: same here
[09:01:50] <seb_kuzminsky> cradek_: did you fall off the net?
[09:23:44] <cradek_> I'm not sure what is wrong yet
[09:26:14] <cradek_> ah my isp's nameservers have disappeared
[09:36:03] <archivist> some isp's change nameserver ip addresses for shitz&giggles
[09:52:15] <seb_kuzminsky> i'm sure the new ip is much better
[09:54:14] <cradek> well something is still wrong
[09:57:28] <archivist> 50.0% of queries will end in failure at (ns1.dreamhost.com) - no such domain
[09:57:38] <archivist> bill needs paying?
[09:57:52] <archivist> both servers report that
[09:59:17] <seb_kuzminsky> archivist: git.linuxcnc.org isnot on dreamhost, only www.linuxcnc.org is
[09:59:26] <seb_kuzminsky> and i can get to www.l.o fine
[09:59:33] <seb_kuzminsky> git.l.o is in cradek's basement
[10:00:04] <archivist> it was an oops on my part, left the http part on 50.0% of queries will be returned by (ns1.dreamhost.com)
[10:00:04] <archivist>
[10:00:04] <archivist> git.linuxcnc.org. 14400 IN A
[10:09:47] <cradek> fixed?
[10:10:21] <archivist> dns seems ok it is the serve methinks
[10:12:34] <archivist> I use http://www.squish.net/dnscheck/v1.html for a trace of possible dns traversal
[10:12:45] <archivist> and that is ok
[10:12:59] <mozmck> I didn't try before, but I can get to www.linuxcnc.org and git.linuxcnc.org
[10:13:29] <archivist> git is working now
[10:13:52] <archivist> someone tripped over a cable :)
[10:36:05] <seb_kuzminsky> cradek: works for me now
[10:36:08] <seb_kuzminsky> thanks
[10:41:44] <cradek> yay
[10:41:46] <cradek> stupid isp
[10:41:59] <cradek> actually, they're usually decent
[10:46:03] <seb_kuzminsky> and thanks for slogging through the ja7 rebase
[10:46:13] <cradek> welcome
[10:46:23] <seb_kuzminsky> cleaning up the ui interface silliness with lui will feel gooooooood
[10:46:40] <cradek> yeah that really was the only nasty bit
[10:46:53] <cradek> that case statement in keystick is just so what
[10:47:26] <seb_kuzminsky> i wonder if there are any commits in ja7 that are clean/ready enough to push to master? to start reducing the size of the diff that the ja branch carries
[10:47:33] <seb_kuzminsky> i dont remember if there was anything like that
[10:47:46] <seb_kuzminsky> but that's one of the benefits of the rebase workflow, that you can do that
[10:47:48] <cradek> doubtful
[10:47:57] <seb_kuzminsky> bummer
[11:05:16] <cradek> if I was doing it, I think that time would be better spent testing the branch as a whole and fixing the remaining things. the branch really doesn't stir in much unrelated stuff.
[12:20:27] <Tom_itx> micges thanks.. i downloaded it this AM
[12:20:50] <Tom_itx> is it stable?
[12:20:59] <micges> yeah
[12:21:05] <Tom_itx> i'll give it a go then
[12:21:26] <Tom_itx> it will show sserial data off a master card?
[12:21:33] <Tom_itx> err sserial io
[12:21:44] <micges> I updated sserial access few minutes ago, downlaod latest
[12:21:51] <Tom_itx> alright
[12:22:24] <micges> yeah all sserial info of all running boards
[12:22:26] <Tom_itx> is the zip current for master?
[12:23:15] <micges> zip on github?
[12:23:18] <Tom_itx> i don't have git set up for that directory
[12:23:19] <Tom_itx> yes
[12:24:07] <micges> yes just refresh page to show 246 commits in master
[12:24:07] <Tom_itx> or does it build it on the fly?
[12:24:41] <Tom_itx> or you can tell me how to git pull it :D
[12:25:19] <micges> git clone https://github.com/micges/mesaflash.git mesaflash
[12:25:31] <atom1> yeah i'm there
[12:26:01] <atom1> i'll try it
[12:26:02] <micges> there is no configure yet, install libpci-dev
[12:26:10] <micges> and make
[12:26:18] <atom1> ok
[12:30:52] <atom1> already have the lib...
[12:30:54] <atom1> thanks
[12:31:59] <atom1> Mesaflash version 3.2.0~pre (built on Jan 16 2015 12:11:12 with libpci 3.0.0)
[12:32:24] <atom1> too bad everything in life isn't that easy
[12:34:07] <micges> I updated version to show which stable it will be
[12:35:59] <atom1> i'll test it here in a bit
[12:36:19] <atom1> gotta wire power to one of the boards first
[12:37:18] <micges> ok, bbl
[13:58:57] <micges> atom1: got it going?
[14:03:45] <Tom_itx> yes
[14:04:15] <micges> what's your setup?
[14:04:39] <atom1> 7i90 -> 7i47 -> 7i84
[14:04:52] <atom1> on a sherline stepper driven mill
[14:05:33] <micges> I see
[14:05:46] <atom1> i've got some configs to fix from switching the 7i90 from a 7i43 but the boards are talking at least
[14:06:36] <micges> pastebin please mesaflash --sserial --verbose
[14:07:05] <atom1> http://tom-itx.no-ip.biz:81/~tom-itx/irc/logs/%23linuxcnc/2015-01-16.html
[14:07:13] <atom1> i just posted it in the main channel there
[14:07:17] <atom1> for pcw
[14:07:41] <atom1> err, i didn't do the --verbose

[14:15:46] <micges> atom1: output seems ok, thanks
[14:16:43] <pcw_home> thats whats in the PIC flash (before our init routine puts in a serial number)
[14:18:13] <micges> atom1: got sticker with serial on 7i84?
[14:18:54] <atom1> no fancy stickers on this one
[14:20:37] * atom1 is tom_itx if you need something else.. going outside a bit
[15:06:19] <skunkworks> http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php?topic=28867.0
[15:10:06] <skunkworks> pcw_home, http://www.cnczone.com/forums/diy-cnc-router-table-machines/256308-longshot-request-help-mesa-6i25-dmm-tech.html
[16:16:01] <seb_kuzminsky> skunkworks: i didn't realize mach3 doesn't have g-code conditionals
[16:18:00] <Tom_itx> skunkworks, point him to my bitfile page for making custom bitfiles
[16:18:07] <Tom_itx> i'm not logged in there
[16:18:23] <Tom_itx> or the wiki, it's on there now too
[16:38:19] <Tom_L> all their posts are moderator filtered?
[16:38:50] <Tom_itx> wow that pc doesn't like me today
[16:40:42] <mozmck> What is the difference between a HAL Gremlin widget and HAL Gremlin Plus widget?
[16:41:37] <mozmck> I tried to add a HAL Gremlin Plus widget to a notebook page and it crashed glade every time.
[17:16:02] <Tom_L> zlog
[17:39:47] <mozmck> Here is the error I get when trying to add a HAL_GremlinPlus widget: (glade-3:342): Gtk-WARNING **: Attempting to add a widget with type GtkHBox to a HAL_GremlinPlus, but as a GtkBin subclass a HAL_GremlinPlus can only contain one widget at a time; it already contains a widget of type GtkAlignment
[17:40:26] <mozmck> This happens a couple of seconds after I add the widget and it shows in the list of widgets on the right.
[18:15:38] <skunkworks> zlog
[18:16:44] <Tom_itx> it may not be complete.. i've had interweb problems today
[20:21:19] <dgarr> mozmck: i haven't looked in a long time but hte examples using HAL_GremlinPlus are still work for me:
[20:21:22] <dgarr> configs/sim/axis/ngcgui/pyngcgui_axis.ini
[20:21:31] <dgarr> configs/sim/touchy/ngcgui/pyngcgui_touchy*.ini
[20:21:42] <dgarr> configs/sim/gscreen/ngcgui/pyngcgui_gscreen*.ini
[20:21:56] <dgarr> these all use EMBED_TAB_COMMAND = gladevcp -x {XID} gremlin_view.ui
[20:22:03] <dgarr> and gremlin_view.ui uses class="HAL_GremlinPlus"
[20:22:14] <dgarr> when linuxcnc is running, you can also start $ gremlin_view
[20:26:58] <mozmck> well, I'll look at those examples.
[20:27:19] <mozmck> It crashes glade completely to try and use it there.
[20:28:53] <mozmck> hmm, in master I can't get either of your first 2 to run at all.
[20:30:27] <mozmck> dgarr: I can get the gscreen/ngcgui sample to run, but the ngcgui and gremlin tabs are blank and I get errors about those on startup
[20:32:27] <mozmck> Here is the last line of the error traceback: File "linuxcnc-dev/lib/python/gremlin_view.py", line 128, in get_linuxcnc_ini_file
[20:32:27] <mozmck> ans = p.split()[p.split().index('-ini')+1]
[20:32:27] <mozmck> ValueError: '-ini' is not in list
[20:39:36] <dgarr> i jiust tested in master (also in 2.7) and thery are woring for me so i don't know, maybe some glade version, i am running ubuntu 12.10 (quantal) uspace
[20:40:22] <dgarr> ii glade 3.14.0-0ubuntu1 i386
[20:43:20] <dgarr> ii glade-gtk2 3.8.0-0ubuntu5 i386
[20:50:52] <dgarr> if neither ncgui nor gremlin tabs load, the problem you are seeing is different i imaginge, i cannot reproduce
[21:06:38] <mozmck> hmm, in my wheezy vm it the gscreen sample works anyhow.
[21:06:47] <mozmck> I'll look at it more later - maybe next week.
[21:10:30] <dgarr> please report all glade versions too
