[07:35:17] <skunkworks> Homing to limit switches.. soft limits setup. failed at getting the spinde drive running.. Think I have and idea what we were doing wrong.
[08:38:43] <skunkworks> Still need to tune the servos.
[08:39:16] <skunkworks> 7i69 plugged in and working (using it for most of the i/o)
[09:51:48] <pcw_home> Did you see that the 7I69 has a Mesa and a OPTO 22 pinout option?

[10:53:38] <jthornton> so you plug a 7i69 into something like a 7i44?
[11:04:54] <skunkworks_> pcw_home, yes - I swapped the jumper so the numbering makse sense
[11:05:03] <skunkworks_> jthornton, yes - 7i44
[11:19:52] <jthornton> cool
[11:20:38] <jthornton> and the 7i44 gets plugged into 5i24 or 7i90
[11:20:43] <skunkworks_> it is pretty awesome
[11:21:20] <jthornton> did you plug your pendant interface into the 7i44 too?
[11:21:48] <jthornton> 7i73
[11:21:55] <skunkworks_> yes

[11:53:03] <jepler> .. raise your hand if you're getting tired of how picky/tricky asciidoc is
[11:53:29] <jepler> skunkworks_: seems like there are packages at http://linuxcnc.org/dists/jessie/2.7-uspace/binary-amd64/
[11:54:27] <skunkworks_> Thanks!
[11:57:02] * JT-Shop gave up on latex formulas a long time ago and just did images
[11:58:00] <JT-Shop> is this the correct way to assemble a db25m-db25m jumper for two mesa cards that are close to each other? http://gnipsel.com/images/mesa/DB25M-DBB25M-IDC.jpg
[11:59:01] <jepler> it seems like that will connect pin 1 to pin 1, etc at each connector
[11:59:02] <JT-Shop> red stripe to pin 1 on both connectors
[12:02:36] <skunkworks_> that looks correct to me..
[12:02:57] * skunkworks_ has the same problem making 50 pin ribon cables..
[12:02:59] <JT-Shop> just wanted a sanity check lol

[12:03:40] <JT-Shop> I keep an original PCW 50 pin cable for a show and tell
[12:06:39] <skunkworks_> we have a ton of computer scsi cables that we use - but it is nice making them the right length..

[13:08:12] <seb_kuzminsky> CaptHindsight: i made RTAI pre-5 kernels for jessie, but they kept crashing when i ran them on VMs in the buildbot
[13:09:13] <seb_kuzminsky> skunkworks_: it's not very clear, but Jessie "sim" is listed on the buildbot front page
[13:09:39] <seb_kuzminsky> it's called "rtpreempt" instead of "uspace" for no good reason
[13:27:07] <skunkworks_> I thought I would try to get fancy and pass the nvidia card to the VM but it isn't working as planned.
[13:36:29] <skunkworks_> stupid question - I just added uspace deb line to the sources.list - I did an apt-get install linuxcnc-uspace
[13:37:07] <skunkworks_> now - if I install a rt-preempt kernel - does the installed version of linuxcnc know that? or do you need to do something?
[13:37:45] <cradek> I think the linuxcnc-uspace build just uses the rt-preempt features if they're detected
[13:38:04] <skunkworks_> ok - that is what I was wondering
[13:47:37] <jepler> right.
[13:47:48] <jepler> if rtapi_app is setuid, and a preempt-rt kernel is detected, then you get preempt-rt realtime
[13:47:52] <jepler> otherwise you get sim
[13:48:00] <seb_kuzminsky> i agree with cradek, linuxcnc-uspace Recommends linux-image-*-rt so it'll stay installed if the rt kernel is uninstalled
[13:48:02] <jepler> the rtapi_app installed by the package is always setuid
[13:51:20] <skunkworks_> seb_kuzminsky, were was the rt_preempt kernel for jessie that was on linuxcnc.org?
[14:04:39] <skunkworks_> or was it on high labs
[14:24:02] <skunkworks_> what is the linux-image-rt-amd64 in the repositories?
[14:24:18] <jepler> I don't know if we publish one for debian jessie
[14:24:46] <jepler> some weeks there's one available in debian's "jessie/backports", it depends whether the latest kernel they offer for the testing distribution has an rt patch
[14:26:25] <skunkworks_> I think seb had built one - It is the one I am using on the hp i5 machine.
[14:27:00] <jepler> I don't know then
[14:29:45] <jepler> http://highlab.com/~seb/linuxcnc/dists/jessie/main/binary-i386/
[14:30:26] <jepler> er -amd64 of course if that's what you need
[14:30:33] <jepler> linux-image-4.4.0-trunk-rt-amd64_4.4.1-1~exp1_amd64.deb
[14:30:42] <CaptHindsight> seb_kuzminsky: yeah, I saw that on the forums months ago. Do you need some tests done on actual hardware?
[14:31:06] <jepler> if it doesn't run on buildbot, we can't build packages for it automatically, so we can't promote it to users
[14:31:19] <jepler> whatever virtualization seb's using with buildbot, that is
[14:31:52] <CaptHindsight> ahh all the development is through the bot
[14:32:01] <jepler> that's the only way we produce packages
[14:32:57] <CaptHindsight> just asking, memleak builds from source for us on gentoo anyway
[14:35:47] <skunkworks_> jepler, that is it - thanks!
[14:48:03] <JT-Shop> this new ASRock H97M Pro4 mb does not work with digital video, screen all messed up, tried 3 monitors then changed to analog video
[14:56:59] <seb_kuzminsky> CaptHindsight, jepler: if someone volunteers to maintain a bare-metal jessie rtai machine we could run the buildslave on that
[14:57:37] <seb_kuzminsky> it'd be a dedicated, always-on machine connected to the internet, connected to the buildbot, doing builds & tests along with the virtual machines
[14:58:12] <jepler> jthornton: I have ASRock H97 Pro4 (not "M") but I don't think I tried the on-board video.
[14:58:15] <seb_kuzminsky> i'm not willing to take on this task at the moment, but i'd help someone else set it up
[14:59:40] <JT-Shop> seems to work with the analog cable
[15:00:50] <JT-Shop> pcw_home: what is the default firmware in the 7i90HD?
[15:55:34] <JT-Shop> I could do it if the buildslave could be configured to only be on line between 4am and 8am during my free time
[16:02:13] <PCW> default 7I90 firmware is EPP (SVST4_4 or similar)
[16:03:18] <PCW> ( both primary and secondary configs )
[16:07:07] <JT-Shop> thanks
[16:44:41] <seb_kuzminsky> JT-Shop: buildbot doesnt make that easy
[16:45:03] <seb_kuzminsky> without some major hackery, that would cause the whole buildbot to pause until the buildslave came back
[16:45:35] <JT-Shop> ouch
[16:45:51] <JT-Shop> I'd hate to hold up the whole works
