It's easy to see that it is completely described with joint limits. Hence, we don't need world limits for serial robots at all!... 02https://github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/issues/96#issuecomment-252892132

[11:18:28] <jepler> boy github is hopping this month
[11:20:20] <jepler> pcw_home: did you see that I have a set of patches for mint that fixed the hm2_eth iptables problem for me? https://github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/pull/173 (for 2.7)https://github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/pull/174 (for master)
[11:20:50] <jepler> unfortunately the fix is invasive (revamps the way rtapi_app switches its extra privileges on and off) so I am not going to campain to Seb to put it in 2.7.
[11:21:37] <jepler> I can probably make a fix for 2.7 that is less invasive if that's important to you or your users.
[11:23:26] <jepler> seb_kuzminsky: just curious, had any tuits to spend on pru-hostmot lately?
[11:29:16] <pcw_home> I saw that, how do I test it?
[11:32:39] <jepler> pcw_home: in general, to test a github pull request click 'view commandline instructions' (may require being logged into github)
[11:32:43] <jepler> Step 1: From your project repository, check out a new branch and test the changes.
[11:32:46] <jepler> git checkout -b jepler-uspace-uid-handling 2.7
[11:32:48] <jepler> in this case, for the 2.7 branch .. ^
[11:32:50] <jepler> git pull https://github.com/jepler/linuxcnc.git uspace-uid-handling
[11:33:07] <jepler> first step creates a new branch called "jepler-uspace-uid-handling" starting at the same point as the branch "2.7"
[11:33:28] <jepler> the second step adds the changes from the pull request
[11:38:20] <pcw_home> OK, thanks, I will try that
[11:57:07] <seb_kuzminsky> jepler: i haven't looked at it in weeks :-/
[11:57:44] <seb_kuzminsky> since Wed Sep 14 20:26:28 2016 +0000 according to my git log
[11:58:10] <seb_kuzminsky> i was hoping to play with it at the hackfest
[11:58:45] <seb_kuzminsky> but now i think i'd feel guilty playing with shiny toys instead of addressing all these github issues
[12:10:23] <jepler> seb_kuzminsky: yeah
[13:47:37] <jepler> didn't someone here order a pine64? I was just reading http://vincentsanders.blogspot.com/2016/10/the-pine-stays-green-in-winter-wisdom.html
[15:18:04] <pcw-dc7900> That ( PR174? ) fixed the Mint 18 iptables problem so far (will run for a week or so)
[15:18:05] <pcw-dc7900> did that prevent other parts of linuxcnc from running as root also?
[15:24:45] <jepler> I think it only mattered for what hm2_eth was doing -- spawning sub-processes
[15:26:01] -linuxcnc-github:#linuxcnc-devel- [13linuxcnc] 15jepler commented on issue #174: pcw confirms on irc that this fixed hm2_eth on his mint18 system too. 02https://github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/pull/174#issuecomment-253027362
[15:28:11] <jepler> hm how irritating -- a github pull request doesn't show you instructions on how to obtain the branch for testing unless you're logged in as someone with the authority to accept the PR
[18:40:21] <kirk_wallace> Off topic, I mentioned a while back that I got a cheap ($24, incl shipping) radio for my Explorer. Someone mentioned that the display was like a buble gum UI or pinball game or something similar. Well I got it today and the display is worse. I made a video: http://www.wallacecompany.com/cheap_car_radio/MOV_0005.MP4 and other files: http://www.wallacecompany.com/cheap_car_radio/
[21:35:20] <cradek> kirk_wallace: wow, thanks for sharing - I wouldn't have wanted to miss that
[21:35:50] <cradek> can you make it ... not?
[21:37:39] <seb_kuzminsky> can you make it... more?
[21:38:09] <cradek> that would be so distracting at night
[21:38:26] <seb_kuzminsky> unn-tzz unn-tzz unn-tzz
[21:38:49] <cradek> https://www.techopedia.com/definition/6724/dancing-baloney
[21:38:52] <cradek> it's not just for webpages anymore!
[21:40:32] <kirk_wallace> There doesn't seem to be any reason for the noise. I have considered pulling the traces that go to useless bit of the LCD.
[21:41:15] <cradek> I've famously silenced a microwave beeper with my sidecutters of destruction
[21:41:35] <cradek> it's nice to modify things to be less obnoxious
[21:47:07] <skunksleep> I unhooked the beeper in my work volt meter. It would beep every time the auto-ranging changed range. The only downfall was I lost the audible continuity tester
[21:47:25] <cradek> if only it were open source
[21:47:59] <cradek> gosh wouldn't it be awesome to be able to fix all the electronic things around you to not suck
[21:48:18] <kirk_wallace> It is nice to have music again, but the speaker cones are warped and the foam surrounds have rotted away. I have a pair of woofers and tweeters on order. I would like to build some crossovers, but this project has turned into a big time sink. It is fun though.
[21:54:43] <cradek> fixing outright breakage on a car is only mildly bothersome, but trying to battle all the rot that comes with old age is really no fun
[21:57:12] <Tom_itx> i think andy thrives on that
[21:57:36] <cradek> yeah, he seems to!
