[08:11:35] <archivist> is there any type considerations on signals into the xor2 comp
[08:12:56] <linuxcnc-build> build #306 of 4020.deb-jessie-rtpreempt-amd64 is complete: Failure [4failed shell_3] Build details are at http://buildbot.linuxcnc.org/buildbot/builders/4020.deb-jessie-rtpreempt-amd64/builds/306 blamelist: John Thornton <bjt128@gmail.com>
[08:14:14] <archivist> because not working for me, I have net from a pyvcp checkbox and one from a dir pin I see both change state when watching in the configuration viewer but the output never changes
[08:32:37] <jthornton> did you addf the xor2?
[08:36:06] <archivist> jthornton, that was it...thanks
[08:36:31] <archivist> oops and all that :)
[08:42:34] <JT-Shop> it's pretty common with me to forget addf
[08:44:04] <archivist> modded the pyvcp hobbing panel to be able to use left hand thread hobs
[08:48:00] <seb_kuzminsky> thanks JT-Shop
[09:29:42] <skunkworks> archivist, hear much from stevenson?
[09:30:01] <skunkworks> still bashes linuxcnc every chance he gets
[09:32:06] <linuxcnc-build> build #1039 of 4015.deb-wheezy-rtpreempt-amd64 is complete: Failure [4failed shell_1] Build details are at http://buildbot.linuxcnc.org/buildbot/builders/4015.deb-wheezy-rtpreempt-amd64/builds/1039 blamelist: John Thornton <bjt128@gmail.com>
[09:37:50] <skunkworks> http://www.model-engineer.co.uk/forums/postings.asp?th=103007&p=157
[09:37:54] <skunkworks> towards the bottom
[09:40:44] <cradek> http://linuxcnc.org/docs/2.7/html/config/ini-homing.html#cha:homing-configuration
[09:40:59] <cradek> it's too bad that the very good image has the variables all spelled wrong
[09:41:41] <cradek> argh
[09:42:02] <cradek> the image says SEARCHVEL, the text above the image says SEARCH_VEL, section 3.1 says HOME_SEARCH_VEL
[09:42:23] <cradek> I think HOME_SEARCH_VEL is the one that's right
[09:42:28] <skunkworks> I wonder if john still has that.
[09:42:51] <skunkworks> For some reason I thought it was drawn in acad or something like that
[09:43:09] <cradek> somethingcad, the windows-based one that john has/had
[09:43:19] <cradek> easycad?
[09:44:18] <skunkworks> too long ago to remember something that specific...
[09:46:47] <skunkworks> you will need to edit that when slaved homing is working ;)
[09:47:07] <cradek> the image is already out of date; it doesn't have lock/unlock or index-only
[09:48:01] <skunkworks> huh - look at that
[09:50:47] <KGB-linuxcnc> 03Chris Radek 052.7 fd942ab 06linuxcnc 10docs/src/config/ini-homing.txt Clarify homing variable names * 14http://git.linuxcnc.org/?p=linuxcnc.git;a=commitdiff;h=fd942ab
[09:53:50] <archivist> skunkworks, funny you should mention him, that is why I was modifying the hobbing panel I did :)
[10:20:09] <archivist> skunkworks, note he is rubbishing mach as well in that thread
[10:20:27] <archivist> must pull his leg when I next wander over
[10:25:28] <cradek> > My impression is that it is still rather unstable, particularly in metric mode with some functions not working, or randomly reverting to imperial
[10:25:54] <cradek> I understand they made some changes regarding how units are handled...
[10:26:06] <cradek> wonder what the problem really is
[10:29:05] <cradek> > It's not until now with basically Tormach driving Linux instead of the geeks that anything has been done.
[10:30:22] <archivist> one of those opening his trap without researching
[10:31:40] <cradek> http://i1.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/001/044/247/297.png
[10:32:29] <archivist> just like that :)
[10:35:59] <archivist> where he claims to have created a screen I bet it was his son
[10:42:00] <archivist> anyway who added the motion analog in pins, methinks want moooore pins
[10:46:17] <pcw_home> more than 16?
[10:46:58] <archivist> there are only 4 when I last read the docs a few days ago
[10:47:53] <pcw_home> you can change the number with a parameter when you launch motion
[10:48:20] <pcw_home> At least I think you can (Haven't tried analog-in)
[10:50:31] <pcw_home> SYNOPSIS
[10:50:33] <pcw_home> loadrt motmod [base_period_nsec=period] [base_thread_fp=0 or 1]
[10:50:34] <pcw_home> [servo_period_nsec=period] [traj_period_nsec=period] [num_joints=[0-9]]
[10:50:36] <pcw_home> ([num_dio=[1-64]] [num_aio=[1-16]])
[10:51:09] <archivist> would be nice if that clue was next to the pin definition :)
[10:52:43] <archivist> I am just thinking ahead ready for a linuxcnc CMM
[10:55:37] <archivist> the fun part is storing the probe and stylus calibration and using it
[11:38:07] <jepler> looks like the compile-time AIO limit is also 64 now, contrary to the manpage
[11:38:28] <jepler> possibly since v2.5.0
[11:39:15] <jepler> a comment also indicates that work is needed to further increase the limit; a little bird told me that machinekit may have done the work.
[11:57:36] <skunkworks> for the most part - I don't see too much negative on path pilot.
[11:57:47] <skunkworks> (from the people that have used it.)
[11:58:11] <skunkworks> They just released an update that seems to have borked a few computers.. - they pulled it.
[12:02:57] <archivist> jepler, I just set num_aio=32 on a 2.5.4 instance and it started ok
[12:03:05] <skunkworks> http://www.cnczone.com/forums/tormach-pathpilot-/291814-software.html
[12:04:43] <archivist> and has 32 in and 32 out pins
[12:15:23] <pcw_home> They may have missed something the only happens with certain upgrade paths (say skipped intermediate upgrades)
[19:12:16] <JT-Shop> cradek: I'll look at the drawing in the morning to clear it up if possible
[19:30:13] <cradek> oh, awesome
[19:30:48] <cradek> (sorry for only doing the easy part)
[19:49:51] <cradek> seb_kuzminsky: thanks for doing the 2.6 release!
[19:53:44] <jepler> I imagine it's the best 2.6 release yet.
[23:37:57] <seb_kuzminsky> does anyone know if micges' patch for the sserial problem solves it? https://github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/issues/27
