01:35 AM pere: A workaround is to edit all tables with empty right columns to have a space.
08:22 AM JT-Shop: pcw--home, can you get a pin file from a bit file with mesaflash?
08:26 AM Tom_L: it can write to xml but i don't think it will recover a bit file
08:27 AM Tom_L: --xml
08:27 AM Tom_L: https://www.mankier.com/1/mesaflash#Options
08:28 AM Tom_L: you may need both --readhmid and --xml
08:29 AM Tom_L: pretty sure you need to load the bit file first though
08:33 AM Tom_L: it _would_ be a handy feature though
09:11 AM pcw--home: JT-Shop:, no, you can only get a pin file from an actual card (There is insufficient information to determine where the IDROM is located in the bitfile data)
09:19 AM JT-Shop: ok thanks
09:20 AM JT-Shop: how's the new chip coming along?
09:21 AM pcw--home: Well, its running code on the embedded processor which is promising
09:22 AM pcw--home: An Efinix fixed a compiler bug I found which is also a good thing
09:30 AM pcw--home: (they are a tiny company compared to the big three FPGA companies: Xilinx, Intel (Altera), Lattice)
09:36 AM pcw--home: Doing layout now on a 7I96 variant using the Efinix chip
09:45 AM JT-Shop: cool
10:21 AM roguish[m]: JT-Shop: good morning.
10:27 AM JT-Shop: yo
10:28 AM JT-Shop: fixing to head to town
10:28 AM roguish[m]: JT-Shop: I'm gonna look around for a refer. when I find one, i'll let you know about the keg.....
10:28 AM JT-Shop: k
10:28 AM roguish[m]: there's no hurry
10:29 AM roguish[m]: cold and rainy here.
10:29 AM JT-Shop: these are 22" tall and 9 1/4" in diameter
12:20 PM hansu: Hi, I would like to hear your thoughts about that ;-) https://github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/issues/996#issuecomment-999771835
12:38 PM pere: hi
02:05 PM hansu: pere: how often is the pot file in weblate being updated?
02:07 PM pere: hansu: no idea. :)
02:10 PM hansu: I mean it is done manually, right?
02:22 PM pere: I believe so, yes, but do not know what the commiters do on that front.
02:23 PM pere: but I asked for an update here in the channel, because I believe it is done manually.
02:32 PM hansu: But isn't it you who maintains the project on weblate?
02:34 PM pere: hansu: weblate fetches from git master on github.
02:35 PM pere: there is no other POT file involved.
02:35 PM hansu: Ahh ok. I understand.
02:36 PM pere: found another po4a issue with asciidoc tables. :( <URL: https://bugs.debian.org/1002303 > is updated.
02:36 PM hansu: Then someone has to update the pot and push it to master.
02:36 PM pere: exactly. no idea how often that is done.
03:03 PM pere: I got a build for the translated documentation, but it is failing because po4a can not handle the tables correctly.
03:06 PM hansu: :-/
03:16 PM pere: <URL: https://github.com/petterreinholdtsen/linuxcnc/tree/po4a-build > is my current test code.
