07:43 AM jthornton: seb_kuzminsky: I've successfully installed the wheezy rt 64 bit kernel and will update the manual tomorrow
07:52 AM skunkworks: jepler, python3-pyqt5 is already the newest version (5.7+dfsg-5)
09:05 AM seb_kuzminsky: jthornton: cool, but i thought it was jessie rtpreempt amd64 that was giving you trouble before?
09:05 AM seb_kuzminsky: do you want me just to revert commit 444c31afc6c?
09:13 AM jthornton: ah no it was wheezy
09:14 AM jthornton: seb_kuzminsky: no, 64 bit is different now and needs additional information to install
09:14 AM jthornton: ie how to add the backport to synaptic
10:04 AM seb_kuzminsky: jthornton: hmm, it Just Works on wheezy-amd64 for me:
10:06 AM seb_kuzminsky: https://paste.ubuntu.com/26438041/
10:06 AM seb_kuzminsky: that's the output of 'apt-cache policy linux-image-rt-amd64' on a freshly updated wheezy machine
10:06 AM seb_kuzminsky: it finds the rtpreempt kernel package in the usual, official package archive at ftp.debian.org
10:07 AM seb_kuzminsky: so i'm really not understanding what you're seeing
10:22 AM jepler: https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=linux-image-rt-
10:22 AM jepler: wheezy and stretch both have rt kernels for i686-pae and amd64 in main/security. jessie has it in backports.
10:30 AM seb_kuzminsky: jepler: that's what i found too
10:53 AM pcw_home: smartserial bug in master? https://forum.linuxcnc.org/27-driver-boards/33856-7i73-lcd-shows-rubisch
11:11 AM seb_kuzminsky: pcw_home: rene-dev did just touch smartserial in master recently, but i thought his change was limited to bidirectional io pins
11:14 AM pcw_home: yeah, not sure where the problem started (Andy also made some changes in December and November)
11:14 AM rene-dev: seb_kuzminsky Those changes should not affect it, but it could be this: https://github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/commit/d92f69438023d62a66171a785a50d33f8cea32c6
11:14 AM rene-dev: I have norberts 7i73, but I dont have an lcd...
11:16 AM rene-dev: pcw should know if the 7i73 uses parameters
11:17 AM pcw_home: I would not think any parameter would be touched unless specifically done
11:18 AM pcw_home: the 7I73 has quite a few EEPROM/RAM parameters
11:20 AM pcw_home: contrast, MPG encmodes, analog-filter
11:22 AM pcw_home: displaymode...
11:22 AM rene-dev: I guess its related
11:23 AM rene-dev: if he sets the paramters in the postgui file, it will not work
11:24 AM rene-dev: as they are set on start only, so restarting the port could help?
11:26 AM pcw_home: Dont know, not sure whats going on...
11:28 AM pcw_home: parameters should really not be touched at all unless a user specifically changes them (not sure if this is happening or not)
11:29 AM pcw_home: most RAM parameters are set to their EEPROM defaults at power up
11:34 AM skunkworks: seb_kuzminsky, if you try getting dxf2gcode running - let me know if you are successful
11:34 AM seb_kuzminsky: skunkworks: if i succeed i'll upload a deb to wlo
11:35 AM seb_kuzminsky: maybe tuesday night at the hackspace i'll play with it
11:35 AM rene-dev: pcw_home ah, that could be the problem. if the parameter differs from the set value, it is set.
11:36 AM rene-dev: so possibly it sets everyting to zero?
11:36 AM pcw_home: Thats very dangerous with EEPROM parameters
11:37 AM skunkworks: seb_kuzminsky, it seems to 'install' dxf2gcode but when you run it - you get
11:37 AM skunkworks: The 'pyqt5' distribution was not found and is required by dxf2gcode
11:37 AM skunkworks: similar to the error in the sudo python3 ./st-setup.py install error

01:54 PM jthornton: seb_kuzminsky: if it is working now for you just revert my commit
02:18 PM Roguish_ is now known as Roguish
02:38 PM -!- #linuxcnc-devel mode set to +v by ChanServ
03:42 PM Roguish: hey all. linux guys. I tried to install the nvidia drivers and borked my system. glx does not run. how can I undo the damage?
04:53 PM JT-Shop: format c
05:04 PM seb_kuzminsky: heh
05:08 PM skunkworks: Roguish, there are online directions. I don't remember the process
05:08 PM skunkworks: I have done it a couple time
05:08 PM skunkworks: times
05:11 PM Roguish: when it's booting, how can I keep it from starting X
05:12 PM seb_kuzminsky: Roguish: are you on wheezy?
05:12 PM Roguish: stretch
05:12 PM Roguish: now I have no 'input' so the rat and keyboard don't work when it's in X
05:14 PM seb_kuzminsky: this maybe? https://lists.debian.org/debian-user/2017/02/msg00048.html
05:14 PM seb_kuzminsky: catch it at the grub boot prompt and add that systemd blurb to the kernel command line
05:37 PM Roguish: seb_kuzminsky: ok, got the rat and keyboard back... thanks.
05:38 PM Roguish: and, what ever the heck I have done now, X is working again..... doh, double doh.

06:35 PM Roguish: how can I make a separate screen with preview/gremlin in it? to display on a 2nd monitor.
07:12 PM hazzy: Roguish: You can do that very easily with hazzy :D
07:12 PM hazzy: Setting > New Window then add the gremlin widget to the new window and hit the green check button and place the window on the other screen. It should restore size and position when you restart LCNC.
07:13 PM hazzy: Too bad hazzy is not quite to the point of bing usable yet
07:15 PM skunkworks: eh minor detail.. :)
07:17 PM hazzy: Yes, very minor!
07:18 PM skunkworks: how does the work cmorley is doing work with yours?
07:23 PM hazzy: They are completely separate (other than the logging utilities). cmorley is using QT, I am using GTK3 so there is no way to really share components, unfortunately.
07:23 PM hazzy: QtScreen is looking great though!
07:34 PM skunkworks: neat - for some reason I thought you where using qt
07:34 PM Roguish: hazzy: so when?
07:35 PM skunkworks: no pressure
07:36 PM hazzy: Roguish: Hopefully in the next month or so. I have not had time to work in it in a while, but I just started working on it again yesterday and hope to have some time over the next few weeks to concentrate on it.
07:37 PM Roguish: sound good.
07:40 PM hazzy: Roguish: It works! https://youtu.be/rh7IONE3Lsk
07:41 PM Roguish: nice. now i need to figure out how to get a 2nd monitor running on linux.....
07:44 PM Tom_L: hazzy you put alot of hours in that
