#linuxcnc-devel Calendar

08:30 AM JT-Shop: jepler, yes that's my phone number
08:46 AM jepler: JT-Shop: you're welcome to change that, for sure!
08:47 AM mrec_: does anyone know what's the correct way to check if linuxcnc has acknowledged a pin change in a hal module?
08:47 AM jepler: JT-Shop: as for backups, I'll check with him but cradek has always kept daily back-ups of it so I do joomla & plug-in updates without making an extra back-up.
08:47 AM mrec_: *memory->out.spindleOverrideDoIncrease = true;
08:48 AM mrec_: newHalBit(HAL_OUT, &(memory->out.spindleOverrideDoIncrease), mHalCompId, "%s.halui.spindle-override.increase", mComponentPrefix);
08:48 AM mrec_: newhalbit is just a wrapper around hal_pin_new(..)
08:51 AM jepler: JT-Shop: after logging in to the administrative page, e-mail settings are at https://forum.linuxcnc.org/administrator/index.php?option=com_config -- recommend to screen-shot the current settings before changing anything, even if it's broken at the moment
09:36 AM JT-Shop: I'm not finding where to set the bounced email address at
10:42 AM mrec_: andypugh_: are you there?
10:42 AM mrec_: what do you think about something like that:
10:42 AM mrec_: if (!m_toggleSpindleOverrideIncrease) {
10:42 AM mrec_: m_toggleSpindleOverrideStamp=now();
10:42 AM mrec_: *memory->out.spindleOverrideDoIncrease=true;
10:42 AM mrec_: }
10:42 AM mrec_: void Hal::monitorResetState() {
10:42 AM mrec_: if (*memory->out.spindleOverrideDoIncrease && expired(m_toggleSpindleOverrideStamp)) {
10:42 AM mrec_: *memory->out.spindleOverrideDoIncrease=false;
10:42 AM mrec_: }
10:42 AM mrec_: }
10:43 AM mrec_: expired / and now()
10:51 AM andypugh_: mrec_: If you are trying to fix spindle-increase and spindle-decrease, I have a feeling that the NML commands have never worked, and that the GUIs all just set a spindle speed, holding state internally.
10:51 AM mrec_: no that one worked fine for me
10:51 AM andypugh_: (But this is not something that I have researched in-depth)
10:51 AM mrec_: except I needed two clicks on the wheel for it, but now I'm wiring it up with adaptive motion
10:52 AM mrec_: andypugh_: do you have that XHC04 pendant?
10:52 AM andypugh_: No, I don’t have any pendant.
10:53 AM mrec_: motion.adaptive-feed, I set the pendant to leads (which disconnects the wheel from X/Y/Z/...) so it can be used for something else
10:53 AM mrec_: for the spindle stuff I'm fine with the buttons on it (the manufacturer is sending another board which I can modify, so detailed spindle work is postponed on my side)
11:10 AM mrec_: andypugh_: is there any way to verify that the server has acknowledged a signal?
11:10 AM andypugh_: I don’t know.
11:11 AM andypugh_: Are you sending NML? I think that an NML command has a serial number, and that there is a way to check the last-executed serial number.
11:11 AM andypugh_: But it’s not an area I know much about.
11:12 AM mrec_: right now the delays for resetting a signal are kind of magic values for me
11:40 AM mrec_: "You need to use allowed file extension (.jpg, .jpeg, .gif, .png, .svg, .rar, .tar, .patch, .c, .zip, .txt, .doc, .gz, .tgz, .ngc, .hal, .ini, .comp, .dxf, .clp, .xml, .pdf, .stepconf, .h, .ui, .glade, .pncconf, .py)."
11:40 AM mrec_: .diff is not allowed...
12:01 PM JT-Shop: I assume you mean the forum?
12:01 PM JT-Shop: hmm maybe not
12:06 PM jepler: JT-Shop: I don't know what you mean by "bounced email address". What are you trying to do?
12:06 PM jepler: I mean, I know you are trying to resolve the problem where follow up posts (and maybe new member confirmations?) are not going out
12:07 PM jepler: but I don't know what your general approach is
12:08 PM jepler: the way it worked for many years was that the system sendmail program was configured to send outgoing messages via gmail and this dedicated account that I mentioned earlier, linuxcncwebforum AT gmail DOT com.
12:08 PM jepler: It sounded like you just wanted to scrap that but I don't know what you want to replace it by.
12:11 PM jepler: mrec_: I made ".diff" a permitted extension, or tried to. (.patch is really the same thing fwiw)
12:13 PM mrec_: I uploaded it as patch already.
12:13 PM mrec_: I'm still improving the integration of the pendant on my side.
12:14 PM mrec_: https://forum.linuxcnc.org/24-hal-components/42740-xhc-whb04b-4-6-issues?start=20#213026
12:14 PM mrec_: that's the current patch for the xhc04 pendant
12:58 PM jepler: JT-Shop: I noticed that on the page "https://forum.linuxcnc.org/administrator/index.php?option=com_kunena&view=config" there's something about the sender address of e-mails...
12:59 PM jepler: I've made a duplicate of the forum (from about 3 days ago's data) and upgrade it to Ubuntu 20.04. I will leave it online for ~24h, please check it out and let me know if you see any problems. If all is well, I will do the "for real" upgrade in July
12:59 PM jepler: https://wip.linuxcnc.org/
01:35 PM JT-Shop: thanks
01:44 PM JT-Shop: when I click on drivers I get this error Error
01:44 PM JT-Shop: Kunena Internal Error: Please enable Kunena Debug Mode and report problem in the www.kunena.org forum.
03:10 PM -!- #linuxcnc-devel mode set to +v by ChanServ
03:35 PM JT-Shop: driver boards is the only category that throws that error, if you click on the last post you can see it
06:33 PM andypugh_: Who knows how to change the channel topic? (2.8.2 just went out)
06:47 PM Tom_L: i used to
06:47 PM Tom_L: /topic #channel topicxxxx
06:47 PM Tom_L: i think
06:48 PM Tom_L: /msg ChanServ TOPIC #foo bar
06:51 PM ChanServ changed topic of #linuxcnc-devel to: Developer-centric chat | LinuxCNC is a linux-based open-source CNC control. | Latest release: 2.8.2 | http://www.linuxcnc.org
06:55 PM Tom_L: someone should update the main webpage as well then
06:56 PM Tom_L: andypugh_, does RTAI 5.3 only support AMD?
06:57 PM Tom_L: i got an email about a new RTAI is why i was wondering
06:57 PM andypugh_: No, but it only supports AMD64
06:58 PM andypugh_: So, it supports Intel, but only 64 bit
06:58 PM Tom_L: so if i'm running wheezy with an older RTAI this won't affect me
06:58 PM andypugh_: No.
06:58 PM andypugh_: If youare running an OS from 2013 that went out of all support 2 years ago….
06:59 PM Tom_L: is your _ nick registered?
06:59 PM andypugh_: I doubt it
07:00 PM Tom_L: switch to your registered one and i'll op
07:49 PM jepler: jt-shop: thanks, I'll look
08:16 PM jepler: >
