#linuxcnc-devel Calendar

12:09 AM hazzy-m: CMorley (IRC): The python command buttons are a great idea!
12:12 AM CMorley: It seems to fill the gap when full handler file stuff is overkill but you need a simple python code called. It helps when people start using a projects so you can see what they have in mind :) i'm sure you found that too.
08:12 AM jepler: seb_kuzminsky: I left the "Installing on Debian Stretch" section because installing from a debian image and then adding LinuxCNC should be emphasized as a way to do things.
08:12 AM jepler: "our secret sauce isn't that secret, or interesting"
10:10 AM -!- #linuxcnc-devel mode set to +v by ChanServ
10:13 AM seb_kuzminsky: jepler: fair enough
10:50 AM Jin|away is now known as Jin^eLD
03:53 PM andypugh: motion.spindle-revs as a pin names seems to cause some confusion. I wonder if it would make sense (as I have renamed it anyway) to use spindle.0.pos-fb instead?
04:45 PM rene_dev_: andypugh makes sense...
04:47 PM rene_dev_: what is that used for anyway?
04:48 PM andypugh: spindle-synchronised motion. Lathe threading, tapping etc
04:48 PM rene_dev_: ah, right
04:48 PM andypugh: But people often think it is a spindle _speed_ input
04:49 PM rene_dev_: yes, renaming it makes sense
04:49 PM rene_dev_: https://github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/pull/509
04:49 PM rene_dev_: are those conflicts multi spindle related?
05:05 PM rene_dev_: funfact: 31 tests fail on windows
05:06 PM andypugh: I don’t think that multispindle has touched anything in tp
05:08 PM andypugh: Though I guess we need to be sure that G33.1 with the extra I parameter works properly with extra spindles.
05:14 PM rene_dev_: ah, I have not looked at the diff. will take care of that then
08:54 PM jepler: hm it appears the stretch image requires network during installation
08:54 PM jepler: without it, it proclaims that it can't determine what version of debian it is, or words to that effect. I didn't screenshot it, I should have.
08:59 PM hazzy-m: jepler (IRC): I noticed that with r8, I haven't tried installing any of the later ISOs without an internet connection, I was hoping it had been quietly resolved :)
08:59 PM hazzy-m: It is a bit of a pain, as a lot of machines in shop environments don't have internet ...
09:35 PM Tom_itx: installs used to fit on a cd too
09:37 PM Tom_itx is now known as Tom_L
10:11 PM hazzy-m: oh, I see I already mentioned that in the PR comments: https://github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/pull/500#issuecomment-425975056
