[08:35:40] <jthornton> when you build a deb with debian/configure -r ; debuild -uc -us is there a way to make it build the html docs as well?
[08:38:06] <jepler> no, we only package the pdf docs. we have talked in the past about changing to build only the html docs, but nobody has ever done anything.
[08:58:09] <jthornton> if only I knew what to do...
[09:16:44] <jthornton> what packages the pdf docs? maybe I can figure it out if I have a start point to look at
[10:14:44] <KGB-linuxcnc> 03Norbert Schechner 05gladeVCP_camview e6fce3f 06linuxcnc 10lib/python/gladevcp/camview.py GladeVCP - CamView - 0.1 * 14http://git.linuxcnc.org/?p=linuxcnc.git;a=commitdiff;h=e6fce3f
[10:54:41] <seb_kuzminsky> jthornton: all the packaging is controlled by the files in the debian/ dir
[10:55:33] <seb_kuzminsky> the list of packages we build is enumerated in the control file
[10:55:44] <seb_kuzminsky> which gets build by debian/configure from debian/control.in
[10:56:37] <seb_kuzminsky> the linuxcnc-doc-$LANGUAGE debs' file lists is in the linuxcnc-doc-$LANGUAGE.files, which also get build from their .in files by debian/configure
[10:57:14] <seb_kuzminsky> then, debian/rules (again, build from debian/rules.in by debian/configure) runs our build system to configure and build the docs
[10:57:42] <seb_kuzminsky> i think those are the main (or only?) things that would have to change, to add html files to the doc debs
[12:10:09] <jepler> > This is directed toward the Administrators of the LinuxCNC application.
[12:42:51] <skunkworks> Did I miss something?
[12:48:39] <jepler> just an interesting turn of phrase from a forum post
[13:11:32] <JT-Shop> seb_kuzminsky: thanks I'll create a test branch local and see if I can run with it
[14:43:26] <seb_kuzminsky> JT-Shop: cool, ask if you get stuck
[14:43:54] <seb_kuzminsky> is html docs something we want for 2.8? (or 3 or whatever it'll be called)
[14:44:35] <seb_kuzminsky> i always go to www.linuxcnc.org for docs when i'm on my bridgeport, but i realize not all cnc machines have an internet connection, or a console
[14:44:48] <JT-Shop> I think so, the html docs are so much better than the pdf now
[14:45:14] <JT-Shop> or the many like me that have limited access to the internet
[14:45:28] <seb_kuzminsky> the pdfs are easier to print, for folks who prefer hardcopy
[14:45:37] * seb_kuzminsky <-- not this guy
[14:45:49] <JT-Shop> yes and having both is a plus
[14:46:01] <JT-Shop> the html is easier to navigate I think now
[14:46:16] <JT-Shop> I know your talking about Gene hehe
[14:46:23] <seb_kuzminsky> more maintenance hassle to have both (thanks for maintaining it)
[14:46:24] <seb_kuzminsky> heh
[14:46:54] <KGB-linuxcnc> 03Norbert Schechner 05gladeVCP_camview e30047e 06linuxcnc 10lib/python/gladevcp/camview.py GladeVCP - CamView 0.1.1 * 14http://git.linuxcnc.org/?p=linuxcnc.git;a=commitdiff;h=e30047e
[14:47:04] <seb_kuzminsky> the html docs + google search is the best thing ever
[14:49:02] <JT-Shop> it's pretty easy now I think to maintain them you only have to change one txt file
[14:49:36] * JT-Shop gets back to making a battery box for the splitter
[15:27:12] <seb_kuzminsky> ran out of disk on the buildmaster again
[15:27:46] <seb_kuzminsky> i'm going to remove historical build logs, say anything from 2014 or older
[15:56:50] <JT-Shop> how big is the disk?
[15:59:39] <seb_kuzminsky> still just 75 gig
[16:00:14] <seb_kuzminsky> because i also ran out on the hypervisor :-/
[16:00:43] <seb_kuzminsky> it'll limp along for a bit longer before i really need to deal with it properly
[16:12:41] * JT-Shop emails seb a 1TB disk
[16:14:28] <JT-Shop> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA5AD3KE4369
[16:29:55] <seb_kuzminsky> JT-Shop: this machine is overly sophisticated and only accepts SAS disks :-(
[16:30:28] <seb_kuzminsky> http://memecrunch.com/meme/22XLN/too-fancy/image.png
[16:31:52] <seb_kuzminsky> i really should move the buildmaster VM to the new server i bought for wheezy + jessie, it's got tons of cheap normal disk
[16:32:13] <seb_kuzminsky> but i keep finding more pressing uses for my time
[16:43:39] <JT-Shop> ouch sas disks are not cheap
[17:36:17] <skunkworks> some tweeking of the spacing
[17:36:20] <skunkworks> http://imgur.com/OIt5H40
[18:02:59] <JT-Shop> whatcha tweeking?
[18:03:22] <Tom_itx> jt, did rucas get you fixed up?
[18:04:12] <JT-Shop> yup, I can boot from freedos now thanks
[18:04:43] <JT-Shop> http://gnipsel.com/images/splitter/battery-box-02.jpg
[18:05:00] <JT-Shop> trying to draw a lid for that in SW and not having much luck lol
[18:05:12] <Tom_itx> really?
[18:05:32] <Tom_itx> does sw have shell?
[18:05:39] <Tom_itx> make a solid and hollow it out
[18:06:00] <JT-Shop> I'm trying to use sheetmetal so I can get the dxf for the plasma
[18:06:11] <Tom_itx> side profile extrude then shell
[18:06:29] <JT-Shop> that won't give me the flat pattern
[18:06:42] <Tom_itx> hmm
[18:06:58] <JT-Shop> that's what I said
[18:07:07] <Tom_itx> so hog it out on the mill :D
[18:07:36] <Tom_itx> you could get that if you did a drawing file from the solid
[18:08:59] <Tom_itx> maybe not quite what you were after but it would get you some dimensions
[18:09:12] <JT-Shop> I don't see how that would work, you need the bend allowance etc
[18:09:31] <Tom_itx> so add a little for the radius of each corner you bend
[18:09:39] <Tom_itx> what's the thickness?
[18:09:50] <JT-Shop> 0.100
[18:09:54] <JT-Shop> 14ga
[18:10:06] <Tom_itx> you gonna bend it or cut and weld it?
[18:10:10] <Tom_itx> like you did the box
[18:11:02] <Tom_itx> i haven't gotten to the sheetmetal tools in catia yet
[18:11:48] <Tom_itx> what's the thin radius you can bend it?
[18:12:16] <JT-Shop> bend on the box/pan brake then weld the corners like the battery boxk
[18:13:17] <JT-Shop> box brake is about 1/8 radius
[18:14:11] <Tom_itx> so almost .250 on the OD
[18:14:42] <JT-Shop> na let me lok
[18:15:47] <JT-Shop> the nose of the shoe is about 3/32" in diameter
[18:16:53] <Tom_itx> what's the box lid size?
[18:19:25] <JT-Shop> I think I have a working solution now, I just have to not try and put the center 20° bend and it is happy
[18:19:56] <Tom_itx> i just opened the catia sheetmetal workbench.. never looked at it yet
[18:22:18] <JT-Shop> the lid looks like this http://gnipsel.com/images/splitter/Battery%20Box%20Lid.JPG
[18:22:50] <JT-Shop> with a 20° bend in the top
[18:23:16] <JT-Shop> time to put on my chef hat
[18:23:21] <JT-Shop> see you in the morning
[18:23:45] <seb_kuzminsky> bork bork
[18:27:11] <Tom_itx> pretty easy in catia for never using those tools yet
[18:27:36] <Tom_itx> can't save it to dxf though
[18:27:45] <Tom_itx> just iges and friends
[18:49:05] <skunkworks> that is the gear sensors on the matsuura spindle
[18:49:18] <skunkworks> *gear teeth sensors
[20:25:42] <seb_kuzminsky> linuxcnc-build: force build --branch=master 0000.checkin
[20:25:43] <linuxcnc-build> build #3957 forced
[20:25:43] <linuxcnc-build> I'll give a shout when the build finishes
[21:25:01] <linuxcnc-build> Hey! build 0000.checkin #3957 is complete: Success [3build successful]
[21:25:02] <linuxcnc-build> Build details are at http://buildbot.linuxcnc.org/buildbot/builders/0000.checkin/builds/3957
[22:15:45] <jepler> alleged pi3 has 64-bit ARM CPU http://www.lifehacker.com.au/2016/02/where-to-buy-the-raspberry-pi-3-pricing-and-full-specs/
[22:16:19] <jepler> now we just need peter to do a wifi mesa board to go with it. or maybe bluetooth.
[23:40:54] <CaptHindsight> it'sah always somethin,it's missing ethernet, gpu or price is too high
