03:03 AM CaptHindsight[m]: seb_kuzminsky: user space or RTAI?
05:24 AM Tom_itx: CaptHindsight[m], i think RTAI will be abandoned
05:28 AM Tom_itx is now known as Tom_L
12:22 PM seb_kuzminsky: CaptHindsight[m]: it's userpace/preeempt-rt
02:44 PM seb_kuzminsky: mostly because the preempt-rt kernel is in debian already, so it's an easier place to start
03:25 PM CaptHindsight[m]: sure, just wondering
03:26 PM CaptHindsight[m]: would be nice if they don't break the ability to build RTAI for it if someone wishes to
03:27 PM seb_kuzminsky: none of the distros that master can build on have rtai debs available in a way that we can test automatically on the buildbot, so building master with rtai is currently not being automatically tested :-(
03:28 PM seb_kuzminsky: i don't think anyone would break building with RTAI on purpose, but i also think it's quite possible that building with RTAI might break on accident, since we're not testing it all the time any more
03:31 PM CaptHindsight[m]: having LCNC in Debian might help narrow down the list of low latency preempt_rt motherboards
03:33 PM CaptHindsight[m]: seb_kuzminsky: suggestion: maybe have that latency test script that someone wrote on the forums included
03:33 PM CaptHindsight[m]: https://forum.linuxcnc.org/18-computer/39371-results-of-latency-test-list-of-computers-tested-for-use-with-linuxcnc
03:35 PM CaptHindsight[m]: and a warning in big red letters: Check your BIOS settings
03:36 PM CaptHindsight[m]: before all the new users complain about how LCNC doesn't work on their PC
09:33 PM skunkwor1s is now known as skunkworks
