#linuxcnc | Logs for 2012-07-31

[00:13:18] <Connor> jdh: Honestly Don't remeber..
[00:23:07] <Gast850> Q: Am I correct in understanding that linuxcnc will not run on ubuntu 12.04?
[00:23:29] <r00t4rd3d> it would if you were a linux guru
[00:23:45] <r00t4rd3d> but most people have to use 10.04
[00:25:12] <Gast850> ok, no big deal. do you know if the livecd contains linuxcnc 2.4.xx or 2.5?
[00:26:03] <r00t4rd3d> 2.5
[00:26:50] <r00t4rd3d> http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.linux.distributions.emc.user/34836
[00:27:07] <r00t4rd3d> im not sure if that works or not
[00:27:27] <r00t4rd3d> explains how to run linuxcnc on 12.04
[00:32:43] <r00t4rd3d> someone should nerd up and do some prebuilt packages for 12.04
[00:32:47] <Gast850> Helpful info :) That doesn't look too bad. I'll give that a try at some point. My mill project has been sitting idle for about 3 years, time to bring it back up to speed.
[00:53:27] <r00t4rd3d> is it built yet?
[02:04:25] <DJ9DJ> moin
[06:34:09] <amaldo> Servus!
[06:40:26] <micges> hi
[07:02:01] <jthornton> I've created a gladevcp tab and I can't enter anything in the entry boxes as if it does not get mouse focus but the button does
[07:31:36] <jthornton> well it does get focus but there is no indication that it does ie the vert bar does not show up
[07:32:44] <jthornton> seems the hal_spinbutton is the same way
[07:32:49] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: you ever go camping on the goldwing?
[07:33:06] <jthornton> no, it's too small to pitch a tent on
[07:33:27] <Jymmm> lol
[07:33:47] <Jymmm> you know what I mean
[07:34:09] <jthornton> yes i do
[07:34:28] <Jymmm> still no?
[07:34:40] <jthornton> my camping days are over with
[07:34:59] <Jymmm> you make that sound like a bad thing (tm)
[07:35:58] <jthornton> I gave away all my camping gear as the only time we would go camping was on the pontoon boat and I sold that a few years ago
[07:36:51] <Jymmm> Ah
[07:40:58] <jdh> I also gave mine away last year to make room.
[07:42:31] <Jymmm> You still go on rides that last all day and part of the night?
[07:42:48] <Jymmm> toys for tots, etc
[07:43:20] <jthornton> all day no night
[07:43:33] <jthornton> poker runs are usually short
[07:43:41] <Jymmm> ah, ok
[07:46:25] <archivist> camping, too much effort, doss in the car
[07:46:44] <Jymmm> sleep in the car?
[07:47:02] <archivist> yes
[07:47:06] <Jymmm> and by car, do you mean an RV?
[07:47:22] <archivist> no I mean standard car
[07:47:44] <Jymmm> do you have a neck in the morning?
[07:48:14] <archivist> just as uncomfortable as sleeping in a cold tent on rock ground
[07:49:18] <Jymmm> Heh, I'm a wuss, have a queen sized air mattress about 1ft thick =)
[07:49:58] <Jymmm> fits perfectl in a 6 man tent with your gear.
[07:50:49] <Jymmm> Why they call my tent 6man, I have no clue
[07:51:06] <r00t4rd3d> stacked
[07:51:09] <Jymmm> more like 4man snugged
[07:51:39] <r00t4rd3d> 6 Ethiopians / 2 Americans
[07:51:47] <archivist> you are not supposed to be using great big mattresses either
[07:51:58] <Jymmm> or maybe they meant 6 midget man tent
[07:52:11] <Jymmm> archivist: why not?
[07:52:45] <archivist> experience the outdoors, not moving house
[07:53:30] <Jymmm> It's the only luxury, insulates the back from the cold too.
[07:53:59] <archivist> use a plastic bag, you wont need the tent then
[07:54:38] <Jymmm> Yeha,wake up soaking wet from sweating if I did that.
[07:54:50] <Jymmm> aka "emergency blanket"
[07:56:58] <r00t4rd3d> craigslist got me 2 sign jobs. Name/address plate for a cottage and a daycare business sign.
[07:57:37] <r00t4rd3d> 65 a shot and i am cutting them in scrap :D
[07:57:53] <r00t4rd3d> well scrap to me.
[07:58:36] <archivist> using up scrap is the right thing to do, my last job did too
[08:06:09] <jthornton> hmm, I should advertise on craigslist... I wonder how you quote a plasma job?
[08:06:45] <Jymmm> jthornton: run time, 1 hour minimum
[08:08:23] <Jymmm> or $250 for the first piece, $10 for each additional =)
[08:09:40] <ReadError> american guns
[08:09:48] <ReadError> why is the girl so concearned about a gun for her purse
[08:09:48] <jthornton> I did find out one guy charges $0.11 per inch of cut plus setup plus a charge for each arc start
[08:09:50] <ReadError> shes like 17
[08:09:54] <ReadError> thats not even legal...
[08:11:04] <Jymmm> jthornton: Maybe $100 for the first inch, $0.25 for each additional, no setup nor arc start fees.
[08:12:02] <skunkworks> jthornton, I remember there being a trick to making glade widgets work.. But I don't remember where I was reading that.. I think irc
[08:12:08] <jdh> stick with revolvers for purse guns, way too much crap floating around in a purse.
[08:12:29] <Jymmm> I always cringe when I think about "tooling fees" as they can be all over the place.
[08:12:30] <ReadError> hammerless too
[08:14:40] <Jymmm> ReadError: Why are you looking in 17yo girl's purse for?
[08:16:31] <archivist> tooling fees are needed, I have to make cutters and write gcode for a job
[08:16:45] <jdh> $1/line for gcode
[08:16:51] <jdh> no canned cycles
[08:16:51] <archivist> and spend time working out methods
[08:17:54] <Jymmm> Not those, but like a die for an extrusion machine, or a mold for injection molding.
[08:18:57] <archivist> make no difference, tooling and setup, code writing etc are all one off charges
[08:19:36] <Jymmm> If it wasn't for $5000 minimum per mold, I'd have all kinds of stuff mold injected.
[08:19:45] <jdh> tooling is time + material though, code is just time.
[08:22:20] <Jymmm> In brit speak, is 'meth' short for 'mentholated spirits', or does it have a broader definition?
[08:22:39] <Jymmm> (sp)
[08:22:56] <Jymmm> metholated?
[08:23:01] <ReadError> Jymmm
[08:23:02] <Jymmm> *shrug*
[08:23:03] <ReadError> its that show
[08:23:05] <archivist> usually shortened to meths
[08:23:05] <ReadError> american guns
[08:23:08] <ReadError> they machine guns and stuff
[08:23:16] <ReadError> gunsmithing
[08:23:26] <Jymmm> red something?
[08:23:46] <ReadError> hm?
[08:23:49] <ReadError> shop is gunsmoke
[08:24:03] <Jymmm> archivist: is "meths" just alcohol, or basically distilled spirits of any kind?
[08:24:16] <ReadError> meth has an entirely different meaning in america ;)
[08:25:18] <archivist> meths is methylated spirits
[08:26:08] <archivist> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denatured_alcohol
[08:26:12] <Jymmm> Ah "In the UK, Australia, and New Zealand, metho is called methylated spirits. In the US and Canada its called denatured alcohol, methyl hydrate*, or fondue fuel."
[08:27:19] <ReadError> well in america
[08:27:21] <ReadError> if you say meth
[08:27:28] <ReadError> one assume you are talking about methamphetamine
[08:27:31] <ReadError> not spirits
[08:34:53] <Jymmm> Hmmm, I guess technically they are not the same thing... "Denatured alcohol is ethanol with something added to it so that it cannot be consumed (thus avoiding alcohol tax). Normally it is methanol added to it (~10%). Methyl hydrate is pure methanol."
[08:35:24] <Jymmm> also with a lower flashpoint.
[08:38:15] <Jymmm> DNA (DeNatured Alcohol) burns hot enough as it is, I can only imagine what ethanol (Everclear 190 Proof) would burn at.
[08:53:05] <jdh> r00t: what size cutter are you using?
[10:10:14] <pingufan> Hello, I just finished the installation of Ubuntu Hardy (8.04) on my CNC mill's CF card. I cannot use version 10.x, it is not working on my hardware.
[10:11:03] <pingufan> Now I want to add "joe" as ASCII editor, and ssh server. Can somebody, please, help me? I am not familiar with Ubuntu.
[10:11:22] <jdh> sudo apt-get install joe
[10:11:31] <jdh> or, just type in 'joe' and see what happens.
[10:11:36] <pingufan> Tells me that it doesn't find it.
[10:12:06] <jdh> oh, I think in 10.04, it will say "not installed, type sudo apt-get install joe" to install or something similar
[10:12:31] <jdh> joe is so non-unixy though.
[10:12:46] <Jymmm> use nano or pico
[10:13:02] <pingufan> It sais: You will have to enable the component called 'universe'
[10:13:09] <jdh> also non-unixy
[10:13:30] <pingufan> I prefer joe.
[10:13:48] <jdh> I also like joe.
[10:14:10] <jdh> if you have the normal ubuntu desktop, look in system/admin/software or seomthing like that.
[10:14:12] <pingufan> what's this 'universe' ?
[10:14:29] <JT-Shop> why do people from craigslist email you this "STILL AVAILABLE FOR SALE?"
[10:14:38] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: spam bots
[10:14:39] <jdh> JT: because they are illiterate idiots?
[10:14:57] <JT-Shop> I thought so, I never respond to them
[10:15:04] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: I bet the email address is xxxx5234@blah
[10:15:12] <pingufan> :D
[10:15:24] <JT-Shop> cnewsome2011@gmail.com
[10:15:30] <Jymmm> yep =)
[10:15:45] <Jymmm> somethingNUMBER@
[10:16:01] <pingufan> Can someone, please, help me? :)
[10:16:12] <jdh> ping: see above.
[10:16:17] <JT-Shop> you might try on the ubuntu channel
[10:16:25] <Jymmm> most of those are just spam bots harvesting email addresses.
[10:16:26] <jdh> if you have the normal ubuntu desktop, look in system/admin/software or seomthing like that, enable universe or whatever it is called
[10:16:38] <archivist> pingufan, for general ubuntu help see #ubuntu channel
[10:16:51] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: on the bottom of the email click on "report spam" link
[10:17:13] <JT-Shop> gotcha
[10:18:23] <pingufan> That showed me this "universe" option. Thanks.
[10:19:06] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: In my CL post, I usually ask them to include a name and number if they want a response. It filters out a lot of flakes too.
[10:19:45] <Jymmm> (except this week of course)
[10:20:20] <JT-Shop> lol
[10:20:32] <pingufan> it's fantastic how fast it is after adding the tmpfs lines from the wiki on the CF-Card. :)
[10:26:56] * JT-Shop has to go to work now
[10:42:28] <pingufan> After installing the 8.04 ISO, I have now EMC 2.3.5 installed. I could also copy the emc2/config/ directory from my old harddisk, this appears to be ok. But I had a newer version of linuxcnc installed. Shall I upgrade to 2.4.7 or to 2.5 ?
[10:42:42] <jdh> yes.
[10:43:05] <pingufan> 2.4.7 or 2.5 ?
[10:43:17] <pingufan> My Ubuntu is 8.04 .
[10:43:17] <skunkworks> 2.5
[10:43:34] <jdh> why can't you use 10.04?
[10:44:29] <pingufan> I tried it first. My VIA EPIA-M mainboard cannot boot that one!
[10:44:42] <pingufan> 8.04 wrks fine.
[10:58:25] <jdh> $80 d525 board?
[10:59:12] <skunkworks> *2.5.1
[10:59:15] <Jymmm> jdh: Shush you! Quit making sense, you'll confuse the natives.
[11:03:00] <jdh> the steve was right about flash.
[11:05:36] <pingufan> Well, 2.5.1 is running. I ran (to be sure) through stepconf before. What I didn't have in the old setup was the tooltip sensor. Can somebody help me with that, please?
[11:11:47] <pingufan> I remember that this was tricky
[11:14:27] <jdh> do you have the line from your old config?
[11:18:53] <pingufan> No. I picked out an old harddisk which was before my upgrade to v4.7. So could recover the stepper config and how the spindle is turned on/off, but at that tome I had no tooltip sensor. The disk with the tooltip sensor configured didn't spin up from one day to the next.
[11:19:09] <pingufan> So I have to re-invent the config for the tooltip sensor. :(
[11:19:40] <pingufan> ... starting with finding out the right input pin...
[11:20:28] <jdh> like: net probe parport.0.pin-XX-in-not => motion.probe-input
[11:21:27] <pingufan> Is there a tool which shows me all pins and then I can press and release the sensor to see which pin changes?
[11:23:03] <pingufan> I slightly remember that there was something for that.
[11:27:58] <pingufan> How can I see the status of the "Sensor" pin on the screen? I can only try all possible pins and actuate the switch to find out which pin is the right one.
[11:37:34] <Jymmm> No tech support today, India has no electricity =)
[11:37:50] <Jymmm> 5 MILLION ppl without power
[11:38:20] <Jymmm> no trains running (electric)
[11:39:14] <TekniQue> good thing they don't have electric cars too
[11:39:22] <Jymmm> lol
[11:39:30] <pingufan> They have electricity at all? ;)
[11:39:32] <Jymmm> and really long extension cords
[11:39:35] <TekniQue> but I bet the petrol stations require electricity to pump
[11:39:47] <TekniQue> so even without electric cars, shit is all fucked
[11:40:07] <Jymmm> Bet I have bolts cutters and a manual pump =)
[11:41:39] <Jymmm> Sucks though, I usually use an angler grinder for that, but sparks + gasoline, not a good thing I dont think ;)
[11:42:02] <Jymmm> angler?! hahaha
[11:42:56] <pingufan> In which docs is explained how to configure the tool sensor, please?
[11:50:49] <jdh> it was 360million without power earlier.
[11:51:00] <skunkworks> pingufan, http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?Touch_Probe
[11:58:21] <JT-Shop> pingufan: to see the status of a pin go to Machine > Show Hal Configuration and add that pin to the watch window
[12:07:49] <pingufan> JT-Shop: Thanks for this hint. I see on probe-in a red dot, when I press the switch the color changes to yellow.
[12:08:20] <pingufan> So I found the right pin, it is pin 11, non-inverting.
[12:08:49] <pingufan> I chose that in stepconf.
[12:09:07] <pingufan> Is that all I have to do, or are there further things I have to do?
[12:09:32] <pingufan> to make it operational?
[12:10:06] <pingufan> I remember there was an M command to store the position of the sensor.
[12:10:26] <pingufan> So the mill moved there automatically for probing.
[12:10:33] <Jymmm> Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww http://www.rightthisminute.com/video/adorable-baby-walrus-rescued-sea
[12:11:10] <cpresser> pingufan: http://www.linuxcnc.org/docs/html/gcode/gcode.html#sec:G38-probe
[12:12:58] <IchGuckLive> Hi all
[12:19:42] <Jymmm> I sent our 6 RFQ's last night. Today I'm like WTH?! Not one reply yet. Then I realize I've been up since 4am and it's only 10am now =)
[12:29:19] <r00t4rd3d> Shit I had to delete my craigslist ad for signs
[12:29:37] <r00t4rd3d> I got 5 to do now :/
[12:30:18] <jdh> cool
[12:30:27] <jdh> how big are they? What size cutter?
[12:30:44] <r00t4rd3d> all fall in 12x24 size
[12:30:54] <r00t4rd3d> mostly vbit, 1/4
[12:31:11] <jdh> what are you using for the cam?
[12:31:46] <archivist> keep the ad, get more work...profit
[12:32:37] <r00t4rd3d> cut2d,3d, vector magic to convert a couple logo's
[12:33:00] <Loetmichel> re @ home
[12:33:20] <r00t4rd3d> http://i.imgur.com/cQAo3.jpg
[12:33:31] <r00t4rd3d> a girl is on her way to give me a down payment for that
[12:33:41] <r00t4rd3d> im gonna redo it in oak plywood
[12:34:01] <r00t4rd3d> that was my rough draft
[12:34:37] <r00t4rd3d> heh her email "That looks amazing! I would love the sign to be made."
[12:35:02] <jdh> cool, you can pay for the software now!
[12:35:29] <r00t4rd3d> yeah right
[12:36:35] <r00t4rd3d> $399 for the cut2d/3d bundle
[12:37:17] <r00t4rd3d> if it keeps making me money, i might buy it
[13:00:57] <IchGuckLive> r00t4rd3d: did you try< incscape
[13:01:33] <IchGuckLive> i use incscape and pycam engrave for signes
[13:02:06] <IchGuckLive> r00t4rd3d: i can direct to a video for a workflow
[13:03:17] <IchGuckLive> r00t4rd3d: did you use our siomple g-code text cam for the text in the sign
[13:03:33] <IchGuckLive> at linuxcnc knolegbase
[13:12:04] <r00t4rd3d> no
[13:12:17] <r00t4rd3d> i did all the text in photoshop
[13:13:03] <IchGuckLive> gimp does it also but there is a text engrave on our webside
[13:13:24] <r00t4rd3d> then i converted the image to eps format with vector magic, cut them out with cut2d.
[13:13:42] <IchGuckLive> http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?Simple_LinuxCNC_G-Code_Generators
[13:13:54] <IchGuckLive> under Nr 8
[13:13:57] <r00t4rd3d> i generate all my code on windows
[13:14:09] <IchGuckLive> ok
[13:14:20] <r00t4rd3d> much easier
[13:14:30] <IchGuckLive> as you say
[13:14:41] <IchGuckLive> its just a workflow
[13:14:58] <IchGuckLive> i dont use windows since 2005
[13:15:16] <r00t4rd3d> im a life long member
[13:15:29] <IchGuckLive> all education PC are on ubuntu
[13:15:39] <r00t4rd3d> thats funny cause ubuntu sucks ass
[13:15:46] <r00t4rd3d> made for retards by retards
[13:15:55] <L84Supper> http://www.techshop.ws/ anyone ever visited one?
[13:16:10] <Jymmm> L84Supper: yep
[13:16:17] <IchGuckLive> in the early jears it worked out nowone coudt work with it for doing aslot of jokes now the students know linux
[13:16:26] <pingufan> normally I wouldn't touch Ubuntu, but I am forced by the iso. :(
[13:16:57] <r00t4rd3d> pingufan, you can use plain ole debian with out the ubuntu shit shell
[13:16:58] <pingufan> It is always a nightmare to me to configure something. SuSE is *much* more comfortable.
[13:17:27] <IchGuckLive> L84Supper: ws adresses are offen vharming your pc
[13:18:23] <IchGuckLive> pingufan: does linuxcnc run under suse
[13:18:41] <IchGuckLive> if been asked this fore many times
[13:19:02] <r00t4rd3d> you can run it on just about any distro if you guru enough.
[13:19:06] <pingufan> Theoretically yes, but it is lot of work to compile and install it. So I sadly accept this Ubuntu crap on my mill (only).
[13:19:20] <r00t4rd3d> ping im in the same boat
[13:19:39] <IchGuckLive> as i only use it for linuxcnc sim and heekscad als o
[13:19:40] <pingufan> :)
[13:19:46] <r00t4rd3d> i just maximize linuxcnc and try to ignore it
[13:19:47] <L84Supper> what unofficial distro would people like to have a liveCD and installer for?
[13:20:11] <r00t4rd3d> debian
[13:20:11] <IchGuckLive> mint
[13:20:16] <r00t4rd3d> make it official
[13:20:52] <r00t4rd3d> i imagine they choose ubuntu though for the noob factor, any dope can install and run it.
[13:21:06] <L84Supper> debian breaks their own install discs
[13:21:07] <pingufan> I use it only for my mill, nothing else, and meanwhile I found ways to make it "more SuSE".
[13:21:37] <IchGuckLive> all other bneeded frree is also on ubuntu like blender gimp incscape just a apt-get away
[13:21:39] <r00t4rd3d> if you tried hard enough you could probably mirror it
[13:21:44] <L84Supper> we tried to support Arch but they keep on breaking their own updates
[13:22:04] <IchGuckLive> is there a debian RTI available
[13:22:13] <IchGuckLive> for mint there is none
[13:22:24] <IchGuckLive> suse ? also a realtime
[13:22:40] <IchGuckLive> all depends on RTI at linuxcnc
[13:22:55] <r00t4rd3d> need to get away from rti
[13:22:58] <pingufan> There IS a Realtime openSUSE !
[13:23:12] <r00t4rd3d> there has to be a better way then rti
[13:23:29] <L84Supper> does Suse use SELinux like Fedora does?
[13:23:31] <pcw_home> All other ways screw software step machines
[13:23:49] <r00t4rd3d> so the right way hasnt been found
[13:23:50] <pingufan> a little bit. It can be enabled/disabled
[13:24:16] <r00t4rd3d> send linus a message
[13:24:18] <pingufan> But there is a Realtime kernel available.
[13:24:35] <pingufan> (never used it).
[13:24:36] <r00t4rd3d> has anyone ever sent him a email asking for input?
[13:24:42] <r00t4rd3d> he does respond
[13:24:55] <pcw_home> I'm all in favor of RT prempt et-al, we will sell more hardware ;-)
[13:25:20] <L84Supper> port to RTEMS?
[13:27:19] <IchGuckLive> ok im out Olympia Germany today in a Medel Shower
[13:28:51] <L84Supper> what are the problems with building packages and kernels for Mint?
[13:31:22] <pcw_home> why would a kernel be different from dist to dist? seems dumb to me
[13:31:43] <jdh> everyone needs a riced up kernelle
[13:32:07] <pcw_home> sigh
[13:32:40] <L84Supper> why does ubuntu keep their build process so obfuscated?
[13:33:02] <L84Supper> some distros just have an agenda
[13:33:07] <jdh> don't they all?
[13:33:11] <archivist> it is as bad as debian it is based on
[13:33:32] <Jymmm> distro bashing I see =)
[13:33:44] <L84Supper> not bashing
[13:33:53] <archivist> whining
[13:33:57] <Jymmm> lol
[13:33:58] <jdh> I could donate my SLS floppies if someone wants to build linuxcnc on there.
[13:34:10] <jdh> is whinging the same as whining?
[13:34:28] <Jymmm> jdh: Yeah, just with hot sauce
[13:34:40] <Jymmm> and blue cheese dressing on the side
[13:34:40] <L84Supper> it would be nice to find a distro with mature devs that don't have any control issues
[13:34:57] <Jymmm> L84Supper: It's called FBSD
[13:35:06] <L84Supper> maybe RedHat
[13:35:45] <Jymmm> No, still FreeBSD.
[13:36:01] <L84Supper> maybe
[13:36:04] <jdh> what about OpenBSD, or 386BSD?
[13:36:09] <Jymmm> sure
[13:36:30] <Jymmm> Any LSD based education facility distro =)
[13:36:45] <Jymmm> It's not called Bezerkeley for nothing
[13:37:57] <Jymmm> I seriously doubt that it's not just a coincidence that both LSD and BSD came from UC Berkeley.
[13:38:03] <L84Supper> http://armdevices.net/2012/07/12/129-exynos4412-quad-core-arm-cortex-a9-development-board/ not sure what the IRQ's look like yet
[13:38:51] <jdh> except for the whole LSD came from .ch thing.
[13:38:53] <Jymmm> But, Which came first... LSD or BSD?
[13:39:40] <L84Supper> BSDCNC
[13:39:52] <L84Supper> another name change
[13:39:55] <jdh> lsdcnc might be more interesting.
[13:40:16] <Jymmm> jdh: I don't care. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
[13:40:21] <Jymmm> ;)
[13:41:21] <L84Supper> GentooCNC
[13:41:39] <Jymmm> L84Supper: That would be ChaosCNC
[13:41:58] <Jymmm> or SuicideCNC
[13:42:04] <Jymmm> CentOS ok
[13:42:17] <jdh> so, what's wrong with ubuntu, other that it tries to be too pretty?
[13:42:21] <Jymmm> CentOSCNC == COC
[13:42:39] <Jymmm> jdh: seriously custom dependancies
[13:43:16] <Jymmm> jdh: No sound card. Installed Ubuntu, it install movie player, I uninstalled movie player, it uninstalled X.
[13:43:29] <jdh> cool, never had that problem.
[13:43:32] <cradek> I love freebsd at least as much as the next guy, but there's no rtai for it.
[13:43:46] <L84Supper> no!
[13:44:01] <Jymmm> cradek: Um http://rtbsd.org/en/
[13:44:05] <djdelorie> Febora
[13:44:11] <jdh> who else uses rtai?
[13:44:47] * djdelorie suspects there's a newer RT mechanism for modern linux kernels that should be used, to be more portable
[13:45:03] <L84Supper> jdh: they are kernel patches to improve the kernels interrupt response
[13:45:03] <Jymmm> portable for what?
[13:45:06] <cradek> Jymmm: perhaps pay attention to what you're doing when removing packages - it always says what it'll do before it does it. :-)
[13:45:15] <djdelorie> across modern linux distros and architectures
[13:45:20] <djdelorie> ARM, for example
[13:45:23] <cradek> hm, one post on 2011/4/29. wonder if there's actually any project
[13:45:31] <Jymmm> cradek: Oh I paid full attention.
[13:45:35] <jdh> L84: I know what it is... what other systems/uses/wtf use RTAI?
[13:45:45] <cradek> yep sure
[13:45:58] <jdh> cradek: they are waiting for the results of the logo competition before starting.
[13:46:19] <r00t4rd3d> crap a guy wants 3 of the signs I designed for him.
[13:46:43] <Jymmm> cradek: It was a test box, so didn't care. But to take out ALL of X becasue it has a depenency on a fricking movie player?! That's just too much.
[13:47:27] <L84Supper> jdh: people also use it for things like multimedia. Audio playback without pauses
[13:47:58] <Jymmm> jdh: ARM, what you gonna run it off a tablet?
[13:48:22] <Jymmm> (which might not ba a bad thing, already has a touch screen)
[13:48:26] <jdh> not even a guess what you are talking about.
[13:48:37] <djdelorie> Jymmm: there are plenty of non-tablet ARM devices out there
[13:48:50] <djdelorie> pandaboard, for example
[13:48:51] <Jymmm> djdelorie: Any I can get from Frys?
[13:48:57] <djdelorie> digikey at least
[13:49:03] <Jymmm> eh
[13:49:19] <djdelorie> http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/UEVM4430G-01-00-00/UEVM4430F-01-00-00-ND/2349866?cur=USD
[13:49:37] <djdelorie> but also the RaspberryPI, Trimslice, Beagles, and a few others
[13:50:01] <Jymmm> yeah yeah, glorified uC imnso
[13:50:22] <djdelorie> dual core 1.2GHz with a gig of ram is "glorified uC" ?
[13:50:32] <Jymmm> lol
[13:50:49] <Jymmm> djdelorie: Ok, I semi lied. I only like the OMAP
[13:51:02] <djdelorie> PandaES is omap and runs official Fedora 17
[13:51:37] <Jymmm> there's only one sepeicifc one I like, getting link...
[13:51:44] <L84Supper> somebody ported RHEL to ARM
[13:52:06] <L84Supper> runs on the A10
[13:52:12] <djdelorie> legaleze: technically, they did NOT, the result is not legally "a RHEL port"
[13:52:28] <L84Supper> Red Sleeves Linux :)
[13:52:44] <L84Supper> http://www.aliexpress.com/product-fm/532332455-Mele-A1000-TV-box-Allwinner-A10-hackable-device-wholesalers.html
[13:52:46] <djdelorie> our legal department has already spoken with them
[13:53:06] <djdelorie> yeah, the A10 is showing up in a couple of new arm things.
[13:53:11] <L84Supper> Henrik Nordstrum (sp)
[13:53:58] <Jymmm> djdelorie: This is the ONLY one I like, and it can run any i386 OS/Distro natively... http://www.logicpd.com/products/system-on-modules/dm3730-torpedo-wireless-som/
[13:54:04] <L84Supper> djdelorie, what the end result of the RHEL-ish for ARM?
[13:54:13] <Jymmm> windows, debian, etc
[13:54:43] <djdelorie> Jymmm: the Sitara is an ARM chip too, not i386
[13:55:54] <djdelorie> L4B: officially we (by "we" I mean "the community") have Fedora for ARM and have not announced any other plans.
[13:56:01] <Jymmm> djdelorie: I dont know what that is, but I just don't want to fight things anymore. No porting, no make, just dl the iso and run it.
[13:56:18] <djdelorie> Jymmm: you can do that for Fedora/ARM now :-)
[13:56:19] <pingufan> What can I do to get this stupid RTAPI error away? I ran the latency test, there I saw 12500 max. I entered then 14000 insto stepconf (to be on safe side), but I still get this message.
[13:56:39] <Jymmm> djdelorie: I dont have to is the point.
[13:56:54] <Jymmm> djdelorie: If I want XP, fine.
[13:56:54] <djdelorie> Jymmm: I mean, you can just download the ISO for ARM
[13:57:26] <djdelorie> for Fedora, I mean, not for LinuxCNC. The RTAI dependency limits what you can "just install" on
[13:57:29] <Jymmm> djdelorie: XP doens't have ARM that I'm aware of
[13:57:43] <djdelorie> what is XP?
[13:58:08] <Jymmm> Windows XP/CE/Embedded/etc
[13:58:26] <djdelorie> I don't see how Windows got into the conversation...
[13:59:04] <L84Supper> heh story just poped up on slashdot "fedora 18 to feature Gnome 2 fork MATE"
[14:00:40] <Jymmm> djdelorie: I believe in the right tool for the job, and it that means Windows for a certain aspect or application, so be it.
[14:01:23] <Jymmm> SolidWorks, CorelDraw, some funky interface to some unique hardware, etc
[14:01:31] <djdelorie> If you want to run XP, buy a PC, but I still don't see how that's relevent to linuxcnc at all...
[14:01:37] <Jymmm> sometimes Windows is a necessary evil.
[14:01:57] <L84Supper> yeah, I wish there were better CAD tools for Linux
[14:01:58] <Jymmm> We were talking ARM.
[14:02:26] <djdelorie> we were taking about linuxcnc on arm
[14:02:41] <Jymmm> djdelorie: goony goo goo
[14:02:55] <amaldo> Jymmm: Fine, but it is worth having an specialized operating system dealing with the real time and control of your machine. Windows is simply not made for such tasks.
[14:02:59] <L84Supper> maybe on the quad core samsung module
[14:03:43] <L84Supper> http://hardkernel.com/renewal_2011/main.php
[14:03:45] <Jymmm> amaldo: I wasn't saying for RT, I was saying for necessary evil applications,,
[14:04:43] <alex4nder> I'm thinking the solution is a combination of BeOS and QNX.
[14:04:52] <amaldo> Jymmm: I see, I thought it had something to do with linuxcnc (because of the name of the channel). :)
[14:05:08] <Jymmm> alex4nder: QNX? really?
[14:05:18] <alex4nder> trolololol
[14:05:21] <alex4nder> maybe greenhills?
[14:05:35] <Jymmm> Well, that would djdelorie area of expertise
[14:05:54] <amaldo> Jymmm: QNX is actually very good for real time tasks. I would prefer it to VXworks, which is what I have to deal with for some robots' controllers.
[14:06:09] <alex4nder> yup 
[14:06:15] <alex4nder> QNX is actually the shit, if you need it.
[14:06:19] <Jymmm> amaldo: So is Free-DOS =)
[14:06:36] <amaldo> But honestly, I don't mind Linux RTAI at all. I wonder what are the problems people complain about.
[14:07:02] <jdh> I got a weld power supply in the other day that runs FreeDOS
[14:07:04] <amaldo> Jymmm: not really. I miss having a POSIX-compliant operating system.
[14:07:12] <Jymmm> ppl complain about linux in general, is that what you mean?
[14:07:34] <Jymmm> amaldo: I think I cna dig up one that fits on a 1.44 FDD =)
[14:08:00] <amaldo> Jymmm: Not at all, GNU/Linux is great. I was wondering why we are discussing other realtime operating systems, when Linux RTAI is fine.
[14:08:36] <Jymmm> amaldo: you'll have to scroll back to find that out
[14:08:52] <amaldo> Jymmm: Sure, but I can get a 4GB SD card to boot for $10. Why would anyone need to limit themselves so heavily on space?
[14:09:12] <amaldo> Jymmm: You were complaining about Ubuntu, if I'm correct.
[14:09:20] <L84Supper> amaldo: were just discussing options to Ubuntu
[14:09:25] <Jymmm> No, L84Supper was
[14:09:30] <L84Supper> heh
[14:09:39] <amaldo> I see.
[14:09:40] <Jymmm> archivist: was whining,
[14:09:50] <Jymmm> then djdelorieasked why, and I responded.
[14:09:55] <Jymmm> with onw example.
[14:10:09] * archivist denies
[14:10:10] <amaldo> If people are willing to accept Windows for certain applications, I don't see why not just accept an Ubuntu computer as a machine controller. :)
[14:10:11] <Jymmm> amaldo: PAY ATTENTION! Conversations topics change every 15s, KEEP UP!
[14:10:32] <amaldo> Jymmm: I'm noticing that. :) I need to drink more coffee.
[14:10:43] * Jymmm erases archivist log file entries... plausabl denability ;)
[14:10:52] <L84Supper> maybe people have the power to change Linux but not windows
[14:11:04] <Jymmm> VM FTW!!!
[14:11:18] <archivist> rm -rf works on windows to change it
[14:11:28] <Jymmm> Does ARM have the ability to run VM's?
[14:11:37] <amaldo> Debian/rules!
[14:11:42] <djdelorie> not yet
[14:11:52] <Jymmm> for desktop, CentOS for server.
[14:11:55] <Jymmm> djdelorie: thanks.
[14:12:28] <djdelorie> my only "complaint" about RTAI is that it is not as well supported as mainstream Linux kernels, which makes running LinuxCNC on other distros harder
[14:12:43] <Jymmm> djdelorie: FWIW, that SoC could
[14:12:47] <djdelorie> but I run the stock ubuntu/linuxcnc on my machine, so it's only a minor complaint :-)
[14:12:58] <L84Supper> rtai vs xenomai
[14:13:20] <Jymmm> xenomai is a VMM isn't it?
[14:13:23] <alex4nder> djdelorie: doing a debian build of RTAI that works is also close to trivial.
[14:13:35] <alex4nder> but not really well documented.
[14:13:50] <amaldo> I had to track a specific Kontron motherboard, with a specific Core2Duo chip, to get VXworks for a robots' controller. And it had to be _that hardware_. In comparison Linux RTAI is a wonder of hardware compatibility. :)
[14:13:51] <Jymmm> alex4nder: GIT ER DONE!
[14:14:04] <alex4nder> Jymmm: I have .debs around.. what more do people want. ;)
[14:14:18] <Jymmm> alex4nder: DOCS BIOTCH! ;)
[14:14:22] <alex4nder> haha
[14:14:26] <alex4nder> I'll post them at some point
[14:14:28] <alex4nder> it's on my todo list
[14:14:30] <Jymmm> alex4nder: so we can say RTMF =)
[14:14:35] <Jymmm> RTFM
[14:15:03] <Tom_itx> ask on irc, don't RTFM
[14:15:04] <Jymmm> alex4nder: Oh shit, that's right below "when pigs fly", right?
[14:15:12] <alex4nder> Jymmm: no, I actually go through my todo list
[14:15:18] <alex4nder> I just have a lot of work in front of it.
[14:15:20] <alex4nder> and moving, and going to europe.
[14:15:25] <alex4nder> etc.
[14:15:39] <L84Supper> http://code.google.com/p/miniemc2/ used xenomai
[14:15:51] <L84Supper> that was on an arm9
[14:15:54] <Jymmm> alex4nder: Is that a 'to do' or a 'Honey do' list =)
[14:16:02] <alex4nder> Jymmm: todo
[14:16:09] <Jymmm> alex4nder: liar
[14:16:09] <alex4nder> my wife has her own list
[14:16:32] <amaldo> L84Supper: nice project.
[14:16:35] <Jymmm> alex4nder: and she has your too, in a mulit-volume set!
[14:16:44] <alex4nder> plz.
[14:17:00] <Tom_itx> is there a pot of gold at the end of a Honey do list or something?
[14:17:08] <alex4nder> no, there's only more work
[14:17:18] <Jymmm> alex4nder: $10 USD via PayPal, if you honestly ask her, she has AT LEAST three things to add to your list.
[14:17:32] <alex4nder> Jymmm: nope
[14:17:42] <alex4nder> it doesn't work that way
[14:18:17] <Jymmm> hahahahahaha, Well I hope 'dog house' and 'couch' are on your to-do list, else might want to add divorce layer =)
[14:18:44] <Jymmm> ^w
[14:18:46] <alex4nder> thanks for the marriage advice,. it's why I come to #linuxcnc
[14:19:03] <Jymmm> np
[14:19:11] <jdh> Jymm: married long?
[14:19:25] <L84Supper> why do you think there's little poetry about marriage and middle age
[14:19:39] <Jymmm> lol @ L84Supper
[14:19:58] <Jymmm> L84Supper: arsenic and old lace
[14:20:28] <djdelorie> oedipus ;-)
[14:20:58] <Jymmm> Nancy Astor: “Sir, if you were my husband, I would give you poison.”
[14:20:58] <Jymmm> Churchill: “If I were your husband I would take it.”
[14:22:37] <Jymmm> I lmao the first time I read that =)
[15:53:07] <DJ9DJ> gn8
[16:45:24] <r00t4rd3d> i think DJ9DJ is a goodnight bot
[16:45:41] <r00t4rd3d> just idles for 10 hours then gn8
[16:45:57] <r00t4rd3d> clock starts over
[17:06:15] <JT-Shop> seems that way yes
[17:07:52] <syyl> he is a real person ;)
[17:08:00] <syyl> in another channel he even talks!
[17:08:06] <JT-Shop> lol
[17:08:10] <alex4nder> laf
[17:32:09] <Tom_itx> wonder where danimal went, he kinda just dissappeared
[18:15:29] <JT-Shop> he does that
[18:16:46] <Jymmm> he does?
[18:18:19] <r00t4rd3d> maybe he is a criminal and does bouts in prison.

[18:23:06] <ReadError> wonder what happend to ThadiusB
[18:24:23] <JT-Shop> http://linuxcnc.org/index.php/english/component/kunena/?func=view&catid=30&id=22644#22644
[18:27:41] <skunkworks__> nice
[18:29:42] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: WTF?? It said 'NOS' and then 'Jet' and first thought was someone fab'ed a jet pack!!! what a let down.
[18:41:24] <skunkworks__> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-czq58hQwGo
[18:42:30] <skunkworks__> really cool other than the realtime error on axis
[18:46:32] <JT-Shop> Jymmm: you read too much into things
[18:48:00] <andypugh> The 3D-printed end covers are nice.
[18:48:08] <JT-Shop> yes
[18:49:23] <skunkworks__> there is a local inventers club that suposidly has a reprap
[18:49:56] <JT-Shop> some melting of the plastic
[18:50:50] <r00t4rd3d> plastic melting is for n00bs
[18:54:19] <JT-Shop> he is cutting the wrong way around
[18:55:51] <skunkworks__> everyone is a critic ;)
[18:55:57] <JT-Shop> lol
[18:56:36] <JT-Shop> no preamble
[18:56:58] <JT-Shop> or maybe I'm way off base
[18:57:21] <Tom_itx> i should put the hdd back in this via machine and try to figure out why realtime didn't load
[18:57:37] <ReadError> awww skunkworks__
[18:57:41] <ReadError> you only had a friend for a summer?
[18:57:53] <Tom_itx> it wouldn't require a different build for an eden chip would it?
[18:58:06] <JT-Shop> dunno
[18:58:10] <Tom_itx> ubuntu loaded fine
[18:58:14] <Tom_itx> but no realtime
[18:58:18] <Tom_itx> from the live cd
[18:58:18] <JT-Shop> when you boot is there more than one kernel?
[18:58:23] <Tom_itx> and linuxcnc is there
[18:58:30] <Tom_itx> dunno how to tell
[18:58:35] <Tom_itx> there shouldn't be
[18:58:47] <JT-Shop> when you boot up you can pick the kernel somehow
[18:58:57] <Tom_itx> there was nothing else on the hdd
[18:59:21] <Tom_itx> i just picked the install from the menu
[18:59:24] <Tom_itx> like i did on the atom
[19:00:24] <JT-Shop> try dpkg --list | grep linux-image
[19:00:37] <Tom_itx> i gotta swap hdd first
[19:00:49] <Tom_itx> i put this windows one back in for now
[19:01:19] <Tom_itx> i guess i can give it one more go
[19:02:24] <JT-Shop2> should say ii linux-image-2.6.32-122-rtai 2.6.32-122.35.rtai
[19:02:31] <Tom_L> lemme swap it out real quick
[19:03:48] <Tom_L> i'll just let it hang out the box for now
[19:04:00] <Tom_L> unless i can get it to work
[19:04:08] <skunkworks__> ReadError: ?
[19:04:14] <Tom_L> zlog

[19:07:08] <JT-Shop> that looks good, all you needed was a 90 degree for the flex :)
[19:08:11] <JT-Shop> look at those calipers laying in the chips
[19:08:48] <andypugh> Yeah, watevah
[19:08:52] <skunkworks__> heh - whatever
[19:08:54] <JT-Shop> LOL
[19:09:26] <skunkworks__> :) That is why we have atleast 4 cheap calipers laying around...

[19:10:43] <Tom_L> is what it returned
[19:10:56] <Tom_L> trying to set irc up on it too is all the nick fuss
[19:11:21] <JT-Shop> looks ok to me but what the heck do I know
[19:11:28] <Tom_L> all
[19:11:40] <skunkworks__> so - latency test doesn't work?
[19:11:43] <Tom_L> no
[19:11:51] <Tom_L> not from the menu anyway
[19:11:56] <skunkworks__> what does it do when you run latency-test from terminal?
[19:12:10] <Tom_L> how do i do that?
[19:12:32] <Tom_L> oh crap, i didn't plug the parport cable back in it
[19:12:38] <skunkworks__> applications -> accessories -> terminal
[19:12:48] <skunkworks__> then just type latency-test
[19:12:49] <Tom_L> it won't start without it but i can run the latency

[19:14:26] <ReadError> Here I show my first two cuts using CNC with EMC2. I generated the first gcode using PyCam, but decided I could modify it to make a better part. The part I am making is for a project a friend I had for the summer.

[19:14:50] <skunkworks__> ReadError: ah - that is not my video :)
[19:15:23] <Tom_L> i wonder if 8.04 would work any better
[19:16:16] <skunkworks__> Tom_L: I think you need to pastebin your dmesg (from termina)
[19:16:27] <Tom_L> i did
[19:16:31] <Tom_L> me thinks
[19:16:54] <Tom_L> err that was dpkg
[19:18:44] <skunkworks__> Tom_L: http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?TroubleShooting#emc2_doesn_t_run_missing_lapic
[19:20:11] <Tom_L> still wanna see the file?
[19:20:14] <Tom_L> i'll try that
[19:21:20] <andypugh> What's the lowest-grief way to share files on my Ubuntu machine to the network?
[19:21:48] <Tom_L> i mapped a drive back to my windows machine
[19:22:02] <Tom_L> then connect ubuntu back to it
[19:22:10] <Tom_L> the map is to my cnc files
[19:22:35] <andypugh> You installed SMB on the Ubu machine then?
[19:22:42] <Tom_L> probably
[19:22:53] <Tom_L> whatever it needed to make it work :)
[19:23:07] <Tom_L> i did it all from the gui with little effort
[19:23:28] <andypugh> I wasn't having much lucj with smb, so I set up afp (netatalk / avahi) and it was working nicely until a couple of days ago
[19:24:26] <r00t4rd3d> usb drive connect to router
[19:24:34] <skunkworks__> I have only used smb
[19:24:36] <Tom_L> skunkworks__, http://tom-itx.dyndns.org:81/~webpage/cnc/dmesg_list.txt
[19:25:14] <Tom_L> skunkworks__ i need root access to change the grub line right?
[19:25:48] <andypugh> I would expect so
[19:25:51] <skunkworks__> 96.108974] RTAI[hal]: ERROR, LOCAL APIC CONFIGURED BUT NOT AVAILABLE/ENABLED
[19:25:59] <jdh> I have a drive hooked up to my router. I map it as a windows drive, and I cifs mount it under my ~/linuxcnc/nc_files/net
[19:26:17] <skunkworks__> Tom_l sudo...
[19:26:23] <Tom_L> yes
[19:26:41] <Tom_L> andypugh it was easier for me to do it that way so i didn't have to make an external login for ubuntu
[19:27:12] <r00t4rd3d> personally i would make sure sshd was installed then use winscp
[19:27:26] <jdh> way too painful
[19:27:28] <Tom_L> i use winscp as well
[19:27:33] <Tom_L> but not on this
[19:27:36] <andypugh> There is some strange stuff going on in a local network where you can screen-share a computer in the other corner of the room, but can't ping it.
[19:27:45] <jdh> then you have two copies everywhere and never know which one is right
[19:27:47] <skunkworks__> I have my nc_files directory shared on the k&t and drop files into it from xp
[19:28:32] <r00t4rd3d> most times i just email myself gcode
[19:28:33] <Tom_L> andypugh the idea for me was to map my cad cam output file right to the ubuntu cnc_files directory but the application didn't like me doing that so i went the other way
[19:29:46] <skunkworks__> andypugh: firewall?
[19:30:08] <andypugh> Not that I know of
[19:30:32] <skunkworks__> by default you cannot ping xp machines because of the windows firewall
[19:30:58] <PCW> Only windows would worry about a ping
[19:31:48] <andypugh> It's the Ubu machine I can't ping
[19:31:57] <jdh> remember the ping of death?
[19:32:17] <PCW> that's peculiar
[19:33:10] <andypugh> Well, I can now. But earlier I was fiddling with settings in it with VNC, bit couldn't ping it. ssh has always worked no problem.
[19:33:27] <r00t4rd3d> andypugh, do you have a router? What brand?
[19:33:34] <r00t4rd3d> internet router
[19:34:17] <andypugh> Currenty I have a remote desktop (VNC) to it, an ssh session and it show up via bonjour/avahi as a share on my Mac. I just can't access the share
[19:34:17] <r00t4rd3d> some routers block that sort of stuff by default
[19:34:29] <r00t4rd3d> samba?
[19:34:33] <andypugh> r00t4rd3d: But it worked until sunday night.
[19:34:43] <andypugh> afp
[19:34:44] <r00t4rd3d> did you update something?
[19:35:00] <andypugh> No, but both machines crashed :-/
[19:35:59] <r00t4rd3d> did they get assigned different network ips?
[19:35:59] <andypugh> The Ubu machine is currently crashing several times a night, but that is my fault, and I am homing in on the problem.
[19:36:25] <andypugh> Yes, but they are both back to where they were and static
[19:36:44] <andypugh> The router is a WRT54G running Tomato
[19:36:54] <r00t4rd3d> lol
[19:37:02] <Tom_L> i need a new router, any suggestions for a decent one?
[19:37:15] <r00t4rd3d> anything that will run ddwrt
[19:37:19] <andypugh> And I can access the other machines on the network fine.
[19:37:29] <jdh> anything better/different than an atom d525 currently?
[19:37:32] <r00t4rd3d> can you ping them through the router?
[19:37:43] <Tom_L> http://www.caymanwireless.com/2000-2900-mhz/171691-uap.html
[19:37:44] <jdh> that comes from amazon
[19:37:45] <andypugh> jdh: not really.
[19:37:51] <Tom_L> i was gonna get one of those for the wifi end of it
[19:38:11] <r00t4rd3d> tomato has command line options i believe in the setup page
[19:38:22] <r00t4rd3d> see if you can get to it from there
[19:39:27] <r00t4rd3d> or a box to type in remote commands
[19:39:30] <r00t4rd3d> something
[19:39:45] <skunkworks__> andypugh: I have had samba just quit working - re-installing it fixed it.
[19:40:07] <r00t4rd3d> samba sucks
[19:40:07] <jdh> I've never seen that happen.
[19:40:12] <r00t4rd3d> id rather burn cds
[19:40:27] <Tom_L> skunkworks__ after editing that grub line i get this:
[19:40:29] <Tom_shop> insmod: error inserting '/usr/realtime-2.6.32-122-rtai/modules/rtai_hal.ko': -1 Operation not permitted
[19:40:33] <andypugh> I just WOL-ed the lathe in the garage, pinged it and opened a share. I think we can conclude that they problem is with the other Ubu box.
[19:41:19] <skunkworks__> Tom_l did you do the sudo update-grub
[19:41:21] <r00t4rd3d> Tom_L, did you update grub after editing it?
[19:41:27] <r00t4rd3d> SOB!
[19:41:30] <Tom_L> yes
[19:41:33] <Tom_L> and rebooted
[19:41:52] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: No, just wanted to ry out a jet pack =)
[19:41:52] <andypugh> Tom_L: RIP?
[19:41:58] <r00t4rd3d> who owns rtai_hal.ko ?
[19:42:14] <Tom_L> how do i tell?
[19:42:34] <andypugh> Tom_L: I think you would remember compiling it.
[19:42:47] <Tom_L> this was a live cd install
[19:43:01] <andypugh> Not that then.
[19:43:06] <Tom_L> or a dead one
[19:43:28] <Tom_L> on a via c3 eden chip
[19:43:43] <andypugh> Tom_L: uname -r ?
[19:44:15] <r00t4rd3d> it probably wont boot now
[19:44:22] <Tom_shop> 2.6.32-122-rtai
[19:44:41] <r00t4rd3d> what are you trying to do any way?
[19:44:54] <andypugh> Tom_L: halrun -U
[19:45:42] <r00t4rd3d> quit screwing around
[19:45:59] <andypugh> Tom_shop: halrun -U ?

[19:46:29] <andypugh> Ick!
[19:46:37] <andypugh> Try a reboot.
[19:46:41] <Tom_L> i did
[19:46:46] <Tom_L> just a sec ago
[19:47:17] <Tom_L> it was kindof a long shot using this board anyway
[19:47:18] <andypugh> reboot, then halrun, and if it crashes, post the dmesg on pastebin
[19:47:24] <Tom_L> ok
[19:47:33] <r00t4rd3d> my via c3 works fine
[19:47:49] <r00t4rd3d> i never mess with hal stuff on it though
[19:47:56] <r00t4rd3d> messed*
[19:48:02] <Tom_L> are you using 8.04?
[19:48:10] <r00t4rd3d> i was on that pile
[19:48:39] <Tom_L> i got the iso for that, i may try it next
[19:48:45] <r00t4rd3d> i would get rtapi errors with 10.04
[19:49:01] <r00t4rd3d> 8.04 just worked.
[19:49:14] <r00t4rd3d> but ive already told you this....
[19:49:27] <r00t4rd3d> your just being stubborn
[19:49:47] <Tom_L> no, i thought i had the 8.04 cd but it turned out to be 10.04
[19:49:54] <Tom_L> so i went with it to try
[19:50:01] <r00t4rd3d> oh
[19:50:19] <r00t4rd3d> once you update linuxcnc and the os, hard to tell the diff
[19:51:19] <r00t4rd3d> install the theme 10.04 uses
[19:52:21] <Tom_L> andypugh, http://tom-itx.dyndns.org:81/~webpage/cnc/dmesg_list.txt
[19:53:40] <andypugh> [ 0.000000] No local APIC present or hardware disabled
[19:53:52] <r00t4rd3d> ya thats what i got
[19:54:12] <andypugh> Is a bit of a show-stopper with 10.04 You could try poking round in the BIOS to see if you can enable LAPIC
[19:54:34] <Tom_L> i'll see if it's there
[19:54:44] <r00t4rd3d> if i did tail -f /var/log/dmesg and ran the lat test it would crash with that same error.
[19:55:12] <r00t4rd3d> i changed everything in the bios
[19:55:14] <r00t4rd3d> twice
[19:55:18] <andypugh> But [ 62.230735] halcmd[1348]: segfault at 8 ip 007816bc sp bff13790 error 6 in liblinuxcnchal.so.0[77c000+8000] looks unusually serious
[19:56:09] <Tom_L> while i'm in there what parport mode do i need?
[19:56:12] <Tom_L> epp?
[19:56:22] <r00t4rd3d> doesnt matter
[19:56:37] <r00t4rd3d> should have a use both setting
[19:56:44] <r00t4rd3d> will default to what ever works
[19:57:53] <r00t4rd3d> i tried both, each one, when i got 8 working it was on both.
[19:58:09] <r00t4rd3d> epp+ecp or some shit
[19:58:16] <r00t4rd3d> pcp
[19:59:25] <Tom_L> what irq do extended irq use?
[19:59:29] <Tom_L> 15?
[19:59:41] <r00t4rd3d> auto
[20:00:12] <r00t4rd3d> no need to mess with irq manually these days
[20:01:31] <r00t4rd3d> if anything try using the 8.04 kernel
[20:02:26] <r00t4rd3d> add the repos
[20:02:38] <Tom_L> yeah i'll burn a cd
[20:03:22] <r00t4rd3d> dont got a usb thumb drive?
[20:03:50] <Tom_L> yes
[20:03:57] <r00t4rd3d> use that
[20:03:58] <Tom_L> i'm not sure it will boot from that
[20:04:15] <r00t4rd3d> mines does
[20:04:24] <r00t4rd3d> lol -s
[20:04:27] <r00t4rd3d> im white
[20:04:48] <Tom_L> usb zip?
[20:04:50] <andypugh> You can use the boot-disk creator in 10,04 to make a bootable USB direct from the ISO
[20:05:02] <r00t4rd3d> unetbootin
[20:05:21] <andypugh> r00t4rd3d: No need, 10,04 can do it from the Admin menu
[20:05:34] <Tom_L> to make one for 8.04?
[20:05:40] <andypugh> Yes
[20:05:48] <Tom_L> mmm now i gotta move the image over..
[20:05:50] <andypugh> It asks for an ISO file.
[20:06:25] <r00t4rd3d> I remember a flaw with that
[20:06:29] <r00t4rd3d> slow or something
[20:06:30] <andypugh> And re-installing netatalk appears to have worked :-)
[20:06:59] <Tom_L> what boot device should i set in the bios? usb-zip?
[20:07:08] <Tom_L> fdd?
[20:07:21] <Jymmm> not fdd
[20:07:33] <Jymmm> Just enable usb legacy
[20:07:37] <r00t4rd3d> when it posts it will give a keypress to goto boot menu
[20:07:37] <andypugh> You might not be able to choose the USB until it is plugged in. My NCBox is like that.
[20:07:54] <r00t4rd3d> in that boot menu you will see what you wants
[20:08:09] <Jymmm> Tom_L: But if you have usb-zip as an option, you may not be able to.
[20:08:19] <Jymmm> Tom_L: how old is this mobo?
[20:08:22] <r00t4rd3d> F2 to enter setup, F3 for boot list, etc
[20:08:27] <r00t4rd3d> ancient
[20:08:29] <Tom_L> obsolete
[20:08:43] <andypugh> Yeah, USB-ZIP is taking me back to the 20th century
[20:08:53] <r00t4rd3d> i remember usb-zip didnt work for me i think
[20:08:57] <Jymmm> Tom_L: Try enabling ATAPI boot, worth a shot.
[20:08:59] <Tom_L> i could have a cd by now
[20:09:06] <r00t4rd3d> there was another usb option
[20:09:18] <r00t4rd3d> usb hard disk or something
[20:09:39] <andypugh> Yes, USB-Zip was an alternative to parallel-port ZIP for those super-high capacity 100MB ZIP drives.
[20:09:51] <Jymmm> andypugh: lol
[20:10:03] <jdh> hey, I loved my zip.
[20:10:12] <andypugh> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iomega_ZIP
[20:10:13] <jdh> I had a p-port one in 1.3.x
[20:10:14] <Jymmm> hey, I STILL love mine
[20:10:50] <Jymmm> I just have a USB one
[20:10:58] <andypugh> I keep finding them in the skip at work (which currently contains a stack of 5 VaxStation 4000 machines all full of memory.
[20:11:19] <Jymmm> andypugh: what kind of ram?
[20:11:20] <jdh> I still have a VS4000/96 in production
[20:11:22] <Jymmm> type
[20:11:28] <andypugh> 8MB SIMMS I think
[20:11:38] <Jymmm> andypugh: 72 or 30?
[20:11:46] <andypugh> 72
[20:11:52] <Jymmm> damn
[20:11:58] * Jymmm needs 30
[20:12:11] <jdh> I have a bag of 30's somewhere
[20:12:21] <Jymmm> jdh: 8mb ?
[20:12:29] <Jymmm> 4mb
[20:12:30] <jdh> 4 afair
[20:12:40] <jdh> don't think you coudl get 8 in a 20
[20:12:43] <jdh> err.. 30
[20:12:44] <Jymmm> parity (9 chip)?
[20:13:09] <jdh> doubt it. I paid $125/each for them though via usenet.
[20:13:18] <Jymmm> cheap
[20:13:30] <jdh> sent some random guy a postal money order for $500 and was half sure I'd never see anything
[20:13:32] <andypugh> I would have taken them out, but they appear to be clipped in.
[20:13:37] <Jymmm> I SOLD 256KB for $10/ea
[20:13:50] <jdh> the vax simms come out
[20:13:57] <jdh> I have stacks of them at work
[20:14:24] <andypugh> I am sure they do, but possibly not when you are trying to look inconspicuous in the corner of the workshop at work.
[20:15:00] <jdh> I don't think they are normal PC type simms
[20:16:17] <andypugh> We retired the last PDP-11 2 years ago, I would have been tempted to grab one of them. It jad managed something like 30 years of running dyno cell 67.
[20:16:40] <jdh> I still have two 11/73's
[20:17:33] <jdh> each hooked up to a vaxstation III :(
[20:18:28] <andypugh> Well, for real exotica, I used to have a Whitechapel Workstation until I gave it to a friend.
[20:18:43] <jdh> never heard of that one!
[20:20:10] <andypugh> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whitechapel_Computer_Works
[20:22:19] <andypugh> And a little more: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!msg/alt.folklore.computers/JxHP2q-_tW8/4r24Q0wb-h4J
[20:22:26] <Tom_L> dammit
[20:22:31] <andypugh> Mine was the Hitec-20
[20:22:32] <Tom_L> cd boot failed
[20:22:33] <jdh> nice.
[20:22:45] <Jymmm> Tom_L: Burn at 4x speed.
[20:22:53] <Jymmm> I used to have one of these... http://oi56.tinypic.com/2nvvwqr.jpg
[20:23:07] <andypugh> I think it is safe indefinitley now, Eric won't throw it away, and it still works.
[20:23:10] <Tom_L> it asked me about format when i burned the iso
[20:23:23] <Jymmm> Kaypro luggable clone, CP/M baby!
[20:23:37] <Jymmm> Tom_L: ISO9660
[20:23:58] <Jymmm> and close session and disc
[20:24:23] <Tom_L> the entered block size does not correspond to the image length. The block size may be wrong. Do you want to correct the value or ignore?
[20:24:38] <Jymmm> correct
[20:24:58] <Tom_L> data mode 1?
[20:25:11] <Jymmm> what are you useing to burn?
[20:25:15] <Tom_L> nero
[20:25:27] <Jymmm> goto express mode
[20:25:32] <Tom_L> block size 2048?
[20:26:00] <Tom_L> this was when i went to open the iso file
[20:26:17] <andypugh> I used to use one of those when I first started at Sheffield Poly and it was all they could find. No, wait, it was something else: http://www.peekpoke.hr/files/2912/9190/5154/ibmportable.jpg I recall not being especialy impressed as it was 1988.
[20:26:54] <Jymmm> yours is an ibm though
[20:27:14] <andypugh> Yeah, I don't know if that is better or worse.
[20:27:39] <andypugh> I had a Mac Portable for a while too, that was rather better.
[20:27:54] <Jymmm> andypugh: Well, I have IBM-DOS 2.x on 5.25" floppys as well as the VERTICAL function key overlays =)

[20:40:02] <Tom_L> where do i get it?
[20:41:31] <r00t4rd3d> ask some guy standing on the corner in a bad neighborhood
[20:41:59] <r00t4rd3d> http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/
[20:42:13] <PCW> Yay got bootP working on the 7I80
[20:42:34] <r00t4rd3d> on the bottom of the app, Diskimage, choose your iso.
[20:42:57] <atom1> it's in the package manager
[20:43:02] <jdh> do you use lube when tapping cast iron?
[20:43:11] <r00t4rd3d> lol
[20:43:32] <Tom_L> use lube when doing anything that creates friction :)
[20:44:21] <r00t4rd3d> just use alittle spit
[20:45:28] <jdh> never had luck with oil + cast iron, it doesn't seem to wet
[20:45:32] <r00t4rd3d> will cast iron even hold threads?
[20:46:09] <atom1> click on disk image?
[20:46:14] <atom1> i selected the iso
[20:46:22] <r00t4rd3d> yeah
[20:46:35] <atom1> type: usb drive
[20:46:39] <r00t4rd3d> yeah
[20:47:02] <r00t4rd3d> sometimes it seems like unetbooting has stalled, it hasnt
[20:47:41] <atom1> ok it's doing somethign
[20:47:58] <atom1> i'll check back on it tomorrow
[20:48:06] <r00t4rd3d> aww come on, do it now.
[20:48:14] <atom1> 8 of 164 files
[20:48:31] <r00t4rd3d> reddit.com
[20:48:41] <atom1> huh?
[20:48:53] <r00t4rd3d> nothing.
[20:49:03] <r00t4rd3d> a place to waste time
[20:49:19] <Tom_L> i try not to do that
[20:50:04] <r00t4rd3d> count?
[20:51:38] <Tom_L> done
[20:51:46] <r00t4rd3d> lol
[20:52:02] <Tom_L> error: no such partition
[20:52:04] <r00t4rd3d> watch it still crash
[20:52:36] <r00t4rd3d> hmm
[20:52:46] <r00t4rd3d> is the drive formatted?
[20:52:55] <r00t4rd3d> or atleast partitioned
[20:53:30] <Tom_L> it's doing something
[20:53:42] <Tom_L> auto boot in 3 sec
[20:53:51] <Tom_L> then it starts counting over
[20:54:10] <Tom_L> doesn't boot
[20:54:28] <Tom_L> but runs the unetbootin splash screen
[20:54:31] <r00t4rd3d> are you choosing to enter the boot menu when the computer starts up?
[20:54:45] <Tom_L> i think so
[20:54:55] <Tom_L> i told it to boot from usb
[20:55:08] <r00t4rd3d> you see like f2 setup . f3 for boot menu/list
[20:55:10] <jdh> connor: where did you find 1/4-28 set screws?
[20:55:23] <Tom_L> no
[20:55:40] <Tom_L> it goes to the usb and runs unetbootin
[20:55:44] <r00t4rd3d> you see a via splash screen when your computer starts?
[20:55:54] <Tom_L> with a count down then starts the count down again
[20:56:06] <Tom_L> and says hit tab for options
[20:56:13] <r00t4rd3d> so hit tab
[20:56:18] <Tom_L> i did
[20:56:33] <r00t4rd3d> boot menu?
[20:56:46] <Tom_L> /ubnkern initrd=/uninit
[20:57:10] <Tom_L> /ubnkern initrd=/ubninit
[20:57:23] <Tom_L> that's it
[20:58:07] <r00t4rd3d> when you hit tab , what does the screen say
[20:58:11] <atom1> let's try making it again
[21:00:17] <atom1> where's that checksum thing to test the iso?
[21:01:03] <r00t4rd3d> i see why it dont work
[21:01:19] <Jymmm> md5sum
[21:05:02] <Tom_L> so why doesn't it work?
[21:10:05] <atom1> the iso checksum should match what the website says right?
[21:10:36] <atom1> i did md5sum on the file and they don't match
[21:11:02] <jdh> I had a bad 10.04 download a few months ago
[21:11:02] <atom1> the only site i see to get it from is the mirror site, the main link to it is 'forbidden'
[21:11:23] <atom1> i'll try the mirror once more
[21:25:40] <atom1> ok, good checksum this time
[21:33:44] <jdh> wsjr: quit
[21:35:35] * Tom_L sets mode +b *!*wsjr@remote1.fxall.com
[21:35:54] <Tom_L> simple fix
[21:38:39] * r00t4rd3d sets mode +b *!*@unaffiliated/toml/x-013812
[21:41:28] <Tom_L> ok the usb won
[21:41:32] <Tom_L> t boot now
[21:45:19] <Tom_L> ok the cd appears to be working now
[22:06:42] <r00t4rd3d> WTF gmail......
[22:11:21] <toastydeath> ?
[22:25:45] <r00t4rd3d> it was giving me issues
[22:28:11] <Connor> jdh I'm not even sure if I used 1/4-28 set screws.. I may have used metric ones.. I got them from HomeDepot
[22:28:51] <Tom_L> now the damn install locked up at 52% copying files
[22:29:23] <r00t4rd3d> why you trying to use that old thing anyway
[22:29:37] <Tom_L> just to see if it will
[22:30:08] <jdh> I have some 1/4-28 SHCS that work, but they aren't as pretty.
[22:30:22] <jdh> I made my blocks .5 thick also (had .5x.5 stock)
[22:31:34] <Connor> Cool.
[22:31:39] <r00t4rd3d> http://i.imgur.com/06R2y.jpg
[22:31:43] <r00t4rd3d> first thought?
[22:31:49] <Connor> Uggly?
[22:31:50] <Connor> :)
[22:31:52] <jdh> gay?
[22:31:55] <r00t4rd3d> ya
[22:32:56] <r00t4rd3d> The Silly Seas
[22:36:34] <r00t4rd3d> Attention all hands, I need a seaman to the poop deck.
[22:36:44] * jdh looks at r00t.
[22:37:41] <Connor> r00t4rd3d: Dude, Really?
[22:37:47] <Connor> *eye roll*
[22:38:58] <jdh> bad pic of my boat and kids from a few years ago: http://www.artichoke.org/SeaCat1.jpg
[22:40:42] <jdh> r00t: make me a logo/sign for a friend... A large, toothy great white type shark standing up in a childrens play pen.
[22:57:44] <r00t4rd3d> http://i.imgur.com/M9fPH.jpg
[22:58:45] <jdh> cool! the shark needs to be sharkier
[22:59:20] <Tom_L> ok it's doing a little better with the usb boot
[22:59:35] <Tom_L> at least it got past the 52% mark
[23:08:00] <r00t4rd3d> are the winter special games this winter?
[23:08:52] <r00t4rd3d> 2014, good
[23:09:33] <Tom_L> it might actually make it this time
[23:09:42] <Tom_L> 98%
[23:09:53] <r00t4rd3d> 99%
[23:09:55] <r00t4rd3d> crash!
[23:10:00] <Tom_L> gawd that's an ugly bird
[23:10:02] <Tom_L> 100
[23:10:54] <jdh> r00t: I was looking for a straight on view of the play pen, with the shark standing in the middle, fins on either side, leaning over, vicious teeth.
[23:11:02] <jdh> but, I have zero or less artistic ability.
[23:11:40] <jdh> (guys' boat name is 'play penn' and he does lots of shark tooth diving)
[23:15:42] <r00t4rd3d> im not that good
[23:18:13] <jdh> well, your pic was better than anything I could do... but I don't think I can cut that.
