#linuxcnc-devel | Logs for 2016-04-17

[06:13:25] <jthornton> I guess I'm stuck in another linux dependency hell loop jekyll doesn't seem to work on LinuxMint 17.3
[06:13:53] <jthornton> all their claims about simple just flew out the window lol
[06:29:14] <jthornton> I did clone wlo and it looks far more complicated that just writing some html pages
[09:10:08] <jsskangas> Any good suggestions for mini itx board with pci or pcie port?
[09:11:55] <jsskangas> I bought new CNC lathe without control, now fitting Mitsubishi servos and hand lapping it to finest accuracy
[10:00:01] <pcw_home> jthornton: did you see this:
[10:00:02] <pcw_home> https://theoryl1.wordpress.com/2015/12/30/install-ruby-2-x-on-linux-mint-17-3/
[10:00:04] <pcw_home> and this
[10:00:05] <pcw_home> https://theoryl1.wordpress.com/2015/12/30/jekyll-static-site-generator/
[11:45:12] <JT-Shop> pcw_home: thanks for the links, I did not come across them this morning being very frustrated at the BP part of my brain was shut off I think
[11:45:43] <JT-Shop> I did find and turn on the serial ports and got LinuxCNC to boot so I'm making progress finally
[11:48:26] <skunkworks_> pcw_home: Any idea why when I ping the 7i80 - I see the led's on the board count up but don't get any responce back to the comptuer
[11:49:30] <skunkworks_> we mounted the board and now can't communicate with it. May have plugged the 7i44 into the wrong plug
[11:57:32] * JT-Shop copies the links to jthornton
[12:00:32] <skunkworks_> I hooked up the 7i92 and it pings - so the computer side seems ok
[12:17:23] <skunkworks_> well that is odd - I changed it from 'fixed from eprom -' to 'fixed -' and now it seems to be working again.
[12:45:46] <pcw_home> beware if you change IP addresses or cards (MAC addresses) without clearing the ARP cache
[13:21:09] <skunkworks_> pcw_home: does that seem odd - it was working with and when I inadvertantly plugged the 7i44 into the wrong plug it stopped seeing the card
[13:21:38] <skunkworks_> swapping the jumpers to the other ip - seemed to make it work again
[13:25:10] <pcw_home> you probably just caused a inadvertent power cycle so if you had been messing with jumpers it would re-read them then
[13:29:28] <skunkworks_> I had restarted the 7i80 multible times - wierd. I just set it back to (fixed from eprom) and it is working
[13:29:58] <skunkworks_> (thought I had borked something)
[13:33:44] <skunkworks_> http://electronicsam.com/images/matsuura/20160417_130657.jpg
[13:34:32] <skunkworks_> Really only going to be 1 opto22 board on that side - but dad drilled the holes for 2 just in case.
[13:45:00] <dgarr> jepler: or cradek this looks like a 2.5 unnoticed bug ? http://www.panix.com/~dgarrett/stuff/0001-glcanon.py-is_lathe-is-a-function.patch
[13:48:25] <dgarr> commit 76b1ed44 2010-07-29
[14:06:06] <seb_kuzminsky> dgarr: nice find, sure looks like a bug
[15:37:30] <jepler> dgarr: I was looking at a similar bit of code recently and I thought I concluded it was a function in one class and a data member in another. which is crazy in its own way. but I may not have read closely enough. I only have my phone for net access this weekend so I can't look into it further. maybe hold of on changing anything as old as 2.5 though?
