10:18 AM roguish[m]: get'er done
10:32 AM -!- #linuxcnc-devel mode set to +v by ChanServ
10:54 AM JT-Shop: yep get'er done
05:12 PM seb_kuzminsky: pcw-home: i'm playing around with a 7i90 connected via SPI to a Raspberry Pi, and I think i've found a small problem with one of the firmwares
05:14 PM seb_kuzminsky: configs/hostmot2/7i90_spi_sssvst8_8_8.bit from the current 7i90.zip
05:14 PM seb_kuzminsky: seems to be sssv8_16, no stepgens
05:19 PM seb_kuzminsky: i'm using 7i90_spi_svst4_8.bit instead, it's got the 4 stepgens i need
05:44 PM JT-Cave: st is stepgen sv is servo
05:44 PM JT-Cave: so no st no stepgens
05:44 PM JT-Cave: I 'think' ss is smart serial but could be wrong
05:45 PM seb_kuzminsky: i loaded "sssvst8_8_8", i expected 8 stepgens (and 8x smartserial and 8x servos), but it had no stepgens,
05:45 PM seb_kuzminsky: i guess it should be sssvst8_4_4, because the 7i90 has three 50-pin connectors, and you can only fit 4 servos or 4 steppers on one connector
05:46 PM seb_kuzminsky: gotta run, i'll read back later tonight
05:46 PM seb_kuzminsky: (this is not urgent for me, i got the 7i90/spi/rpi/4xsteppers working so i'm happy)
05:48 PM JT-Cave: it keeps me cornfused
06:03 PM pcw-home: Its possible some of the 7I90 firmware is not correct, very likely not all have been tested
