[03:13:46] <willburrrr2003> how is everone doing tonight?
[03:16:16] <archivist> its morning and we dont get chance to reply!
[04:22:41] <Loetmichel> mornin'
[04:24:57] <archivist> ! nearly afternoon
[05:12:53] <RyanS> weird http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Tail-Stock-Turret-TRI-HEAD-2MT-SHANK-/400166358524?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_15&hash=item5d2bc60dfc

[10:20:30] <PetefromTn> Morning Folks..
[11:31:30] <IchGuckLive> hi all !
[11:37:09] <Connor> PetefromTn: You around ?
[11:37:40] <PetefromTn> nope..
[11:37:43] <PetefromTn> LOL
[11:37:46] <Connor> rofl
[11:37:56] <Connor> I tested rigid tapping with my new tap.
[11:38:24] <Connor> 1/4-20 in 3/8" thick alumn. I tried it at 1000 and 1500RPM. No coolant, no lube..
[11:38:24] <PetefromTn> and...?
[11:38:30] <Connor> worked.
[11:38:35] <PetefromTn> excellent!!
[11:38:37] <Connor> but, my spindle bogged down a little.
[11:38:40] <PetefromTn> why so fast?
[11:38:49] <Connor> torque.
[11:38:58] <PetefromTn> or lack thereof?
[11:39:03] <Connor> yup.
[11:39:21] <Connor> I might need to turn the torque pot up on my spindle speed controller..
[11:39:27] <PetefromTn> did you like the spiral fluters..
[11:39:35] <Connor> Yea. I did.
[11:39:38] <syyl_ws_> the question is, why not that fast?
[11:39:43] <PetefromTn> why no lube?
[11:40:00] <Connor> I dunno. :)
[11:40:04] <Connor> Cause I could.
[11:40:05] <syyl_ws_> thats a good question :D
[11:40:05] <PetefromTn> LOL
[11:42:04] <Connor> That's about all I managed to do yesterday..
[11:45:54] <Connor> I would like to get 4-40, 6-32, 8-32 and 10-24 and then the metrics too
[11:46:08] <syyl_ws_> i finaly got a iso40 taper spindle for my mill :D
[11:46:08] <Connor> I don't think I've done anything larger than 1/4-20
[11:46:38] <PetefromTn> I did 3/8-16 and 1/2 on the RF45 but only once on the 1/2
[11:46:39] <syyl_ws_> https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/24396704/Deckel%20Schnelll%C3%A4ufer/IMG_1998.JPG
[11:46:45] <syyl_ws_> \o/
[11:47:21] <Connor> syyl_ws_: what is the stuff to the left of the mill ?
[11:47:24] <syyl_ws_> iso40, up to 6000rpm and quill with 60mm stroke
[11:47:48] <syyl_ws_> thats my tool/cutter/surface grinder
[12:14:54] <Tom_itx> thanks to all that helped with my problem
[12:48:31] * Loetmichel had just made the moxt expensiv AA battery charge holder on the world... 5 hrs building just to charge some batteries... -> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=14292 :-)
[13:13:20] <Jymmm> lol @ Loetmichel
[13:26:41] <Tom_itx> 6G tar file download just to build a bit file seems a bit excessive
[13:27:56] <micges> 13GB after installation :)
[13:29:17] <archivist> is modern code bloated, yes or no ...discuss
[13:35:27] <Tom_itx> of course it is
[13:35:43] <Tom_itx> i had 9.2 installed and it was only 1.6G
[13:35:50] <Tom_itx> the tar that is
[13:37:01] <Tom_itx> did you just install webpack?
[13:38:56] <ssi> ISE is a huge pig
[13:39:16] <ssi> it'd be nice if there were a linux CLI tools package
[13:39:19] <ssi> just xst and such
[13:40:19] <Tom_itx> how do i remove the old version?
[13:40:38] <ssi> no clue
[13:40:42] <Tom_itx> well they have alot of chips to support too
[13:44:46] <Tom_itx> may get to use it tomorrow after it's done installing...
[13:44:54] <ssi> heheh
[13:48:56] <micges> Tom_itx: there should be unnistaller somewhere in installed directory tree
[13:49:51] <Tom_itx> i tried running the setup file
[13:50:07] <micges> I simply just remove directory
[13:50:41] <Tom_itx> i may do that too
[13:59:11] <Tom_itx> what script do you run for 14.5?
[14:02:00] <micges> for install?
[14:02:17] <Tom_itx> no i think it installed
[14:02:25] <Tom_itx> i ran a bunch of setup stuff
[14:02:51] <Tom_itx> i don't use it often enough to remember
[14:03:11] <micges> I use build system from http://git.linuxcnc.org/gitweb?p=hostmot2-firmware.git;a=summary
[14:03:39] <micges> I modify needed vhd and just type ./build.py
[14:03:52] <micges> or make
[14:07:57] <Tom_itx> crap i think i deleted a script i made
[14:09:06] <Tom_itx> http://tom-itx.dyndns.org:81/~webpage/emc/xilinx/xilinx_install_index.php
[14:09:13] <Tom_itx> i'm using this
[14:23:16] <Tom_itx> ok it must be working
[14:25:09] <Tom_itx> now to figure out what to put in the file
[15:06:23] <Tom_itx> when you edit the .vhd file does it matter the order of the functions at the top of the file?
[15:12:58] <ssi> what are you working on? trying to make a new bitfile for a mesa card?
[15:13:46] <Tom_itx> yes
[15:13:53] <Tom_itx> adding sserial to my 7i47
[15:13:58] <ssi> gotcha
[15:14:30] <Tom_itx> pretty sure i got it but i may blow it by somebody before i commit to it
[15:14:44] <ssi> I'm screwing around in ISE too, but I'm writing verilog and not for mesa stuff :)
[15:15:02] <Tom_itx> for the bbb?
[15:15:08] <ssi> not exactly
[15:15:30] <ssi> I'm working on bitcoin mining hardware... I started off using an fpga cape for the bbb, but the design doesn't fit in the s3a 200
[15:15:38] <ssi> so I have it running on my s3e 500 devboard
[15:15:47] <ssi> and using the BBB to control it over SPI
[15:16:06] <Tom_itx> i played with vhdl / verilog long time ago but never did alot
[15:16:11] <ssi> yeah I'm in the same boat
[15:16:16] <ssi> but I've gotten pretty good at it over the last 2 weeks
[15:16:28] <ssi> this design is pretty complicated
[15:16:44] <ssi> https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BM6B7-CCMAElsnQ.jpg:large
[15:16:45] <ssi> heheh
[15:18:24] <Tom_itx> now i gotta find some pins i can use
[15:23:34] <Tecan>
[15:29:21] <ssi> Tecan: does your nick have anything to do with the lab instrument company?
[15:29:51] <Tecan> no
[15:29:55] <ssi> :P
[15:30:27] <ssi> my friend and I bought a tecan wetlab machine in a surplus store and used it as a gantry machine
[15:30:42] <ssi> he had it running as a 3d printer for awhile
[15:30:46] <ssi> called it his "tecrap"
[15:30:47] <ssi> :P
[15:30:52] <Tecan> lol
[15:31:41] <ssi> it was something like this:
[15:31:41] <ssi> http://www.tecan.com/platform/apps/product/index.asp?MenuID=2611&ID=5030&Menu=1&Item=21.1.7
[15:31:45] <ssi> pipetting robot
[15:31:47] <ssi> heh
[15:31:57] <ssi> had two gear rack Z axes side by side, and fluid lines that ran down to the ends
[15:32:10] <ssi> 20x36x18 travel, something like that
[15:53:01] <Tom_itx> what is the 'QCountTag' in the .vhd file?
[15:53:07] <Tom_itx> are those general io pins?
[15:55:47] <andypugh> Quadrature Couner
[15:56:02] <andypugh> (Counter).
[15:56:20] <Tom_itx> well i'm trying to find a place to insert the sserial pins in my exhisting 7i47 file
[15:56:32] <Tom_itx> looking at rx tx 0 & 1
[15:56:39] <Tom_itx> but not sure where to put the lines
[15:56:46] <Tom_itx> or what to remove
[15:57:22] <Tom_itx> i added the sserial function at the top of the file
[15:57:45] <DJ9DJ> gn8
[15:58:24] <Tom_itx> care to take a look?
[15:58:30] <andypugh> Do you have a *ss* vhd to compare with?
[15:58:42] <Tom_itx> i pulled the lines from one, yes
[15:58:54] <Tom_itx> but not for the 7i47
[15:58:55] <andypugh> I am not really very knowledgable on making bitfiles.
[15:59:37] <Tom_itx> i'm just not sure which pins to replace the sserial with
[15:59:57] <Tom_itx> i know what's on the rx tx 1 & 0 pins and i can free those up
[16:00:33] <Tom_itx> also what i don't know is if you use RX0 /RX0 or RX0 RX1
[16:01:04] <Tom_itx> i may have my sserial lines doubled up in the file if i use the inverted pin set
[16:01:13] <Tom_itx> so i may not need RX TX 1
[16:01:33] <Tom_itx> just the RX /RX TX /TX 0 set
[16:01:47] <andypugh> Does it compile? That's the fisrt thing.
[16:01:55] <Tom_itx> haven't tried that yet
[16:02:23] <Tom_itx> i haven't actually replaced the pin lines yet, just added them to the bottom of the file for syntax reference
[16:05:12] <Tom_itx> http://tom-itx.dyndns.org:81/~webpage/cnc/configs/sherline/PIN_SVST2_4_7I47SS_TOM_48.vhd
[16:05:16] <Tom_itx> that's what i have so far
[16:06:25] <Tom_itx> i added the sserialTag line at the top and removed one of the nulltag lines
[16:07:07] <Tom_itx> the lines to insert are at the bottom
[16:07:31] <Tom_itx> the 7i47 doesn't use enable
[16:07:39] <Tom_itx> so it only requires 2 pins per
[16:09:45] <Tom_itx> i think the inverted channel is part of the transceiver itself, i don't think i need to mess with pins for those
[16:10:09] <Tom_itx> so if i only need one pair i don't think i actually need the tx rx 1 set
[16:10:51] <andypugh> No harm in putting them both in, you can always disable one if you want the GPIO
[16:11:49] <Tom_itx> the pins are in use though
[16:11:56] <Tom_itx> i'm gonna need to free them up
[16:12:08] <Tom_itx> but if i use the sserial i'll likely move it all to that
[16:22:18] <Tom_itx> i suppose dmesg would show the functions wouldn't it?
[17:20:59] <jthornton> 1350 miles on a Spyder makes John a tired boy
[17:22:59] <Jymmm> jthornton: Should try a GW instead =)
[17:23:00] <Tom_itx> heh butt knumb?
[17:23:15] <Tom_itx> numb*
[17:23:31] <jthornton> lol not too bad
[17:23:38] <Jymmm> jthornton: air suspension?
[17:23:41] <jthornton> just a long way and lots of fun
[17:23:57] <jthornton> on the rear shock it has air leveler
[17:24:12] <Jymmm> jthornton: and the GW ?
[17:24:29] <jthornton> same
[17:24:47] <Jymmm> jthornton: I thought the GW had front and rear?
[17:25:01] <jthornton> this was a Spyder Owners Appreciation Event
[17:25:07] <Tom_itx> jthornton ever mess with bit files?
[17:25:17] <jthornton> nope
[17:25:35] <Tom_itx> trying to add sserial to a 7i47 one
[17:25:43] <jthornton> cool
[17:25:45] <Tom_itx> close but had a couple questions
[17:25:54] <jthornton> sounds hair pulling
[17:26:03] <Tom_itx> no not so bad really
[17:26:07] <Jymmm> jthornton: You liking it that much even with the suck mileage?
[17:26:47] <jthornton> well it's only 5 mpg less than GW trikes and the same as HD trikes so not so bad
[17:27:15] <Jymmm> jthornton: Oh, they way you described it sounded much worse than that.
[17:27:48] <jthornton> well I was bitching at the time
[17:28:03] <Jymmm> lol
[17:28:14] <Jymmm> jthornton: For the price you paid for it, I'd be too =)
[17:28:19] <micges> Tom_itx: pastebin vhd file you working on
[17:28:24] <Tom_itx> i did
[17:28:32] <jthornton> I wonder why people assume how a G code works without even looking it up
[17:28:47] <micges> logger[mah]: hi
[17:28:48] <logger[mah]> micges: Log stored at http://linuxcnc.mah.priv.at/irc/%23linuxcnc/2013-06-16.html
[17:28:56] <Tom_itx> http://tom-itx.dyndns.org:81/~webpage/cnc/configs/sherline/PIN_SVST2_4_7I47SS_TOM_48.vhd
[17:28:59] <jthornton> Jymmm, it was much cheaper than any other trike really
[17:29:06] <Tom_itx> the lines that need inserted are at the bottom of the file
[17:29:53] <Tom_itx> i was looking to use IO4 6 20 21 but not sure if it will interfere with those other functions since they also use extra pins
[17:30:05] <Tom_itx> or just 4 and 20
[17:30:16] <micges> SSerial tag is copied from some SS vhd?
[17:30:51] <Tom_itx> yes i added that at the top
[17:31:01] <micges> ok
[17:31:01] <Tom_itx> and removed a dummy one
[17:31:09] <Tom_itx> so there's still 32 entries
[17:31:30] <micges> ok so what is your question
[17:31:43] <Tom_itx> how to insert the pin part
[17:31:48] <Tom_itx> the lines are at the bottom
[17:31:58] <micges> same way as tag line
[17:32:20] <micges> insert where you want it and lines count must be unchanged
[17:32:23] <Tom_itx> but the io i need to use have functions that take up more than just the one io pin
[17:32:36] <Tom_itx> because of the 7i47 layout
[17:32:54] <Tom_itx> 4 is ok but 20 may not be
[17:33:20] <Tom_itx> what to put in place of the PWMBDirPin?
[17:33:27] <Tom_itx> if i use PWMAOutPin
[17:33:50] <micges> hold on
[17:33:56] <micges> what board is it?
[17:33:56] <Tom_itx> at io 20 & 21
[17:34:07] <Tom_itx> this is a 7i43 driving a 7i47
[17:35:12] <Tom_itx> and those pins are where the RX TX 0 and RX TX 1 pins fall
[17:35:17] <Tom_itx> on the 7i47
[17:35:50] <Tom_itx> (i'm pretty sure)
[17:40:33] <toudi_> ok, where you want your sserial?
[17:40:52] <Tom_itx> so i think i would just assign the unused pins as NullTag
[17:41:02] <Tom_itx> as the alternate function so they will be mapped as gpio
[17:41:12] <Tom_itx> RX0 TX0
[17:41:20] <Tom_itx> i really only need one sserial
[17:41:44] <Tom_itx> those are IO pins 4 & 20
[17:42:21] <Tom_itx> but i'm not sure what all that QCountQAPin stuff is
[17:42:36] <Tom_itx> or how many pins are affected by each instance of it
[17:42:49] <Tom_itx> those would all need to be assigned NullTag
[17:42:56] <Tom_itx> as gpio
[17:43:57] <Tom_itx> i sorta know what to do but since i've never edited one i'd like to be sure
[17:44:05] <Tom_itx> i have compiled a few
[17:44:25] <micges> what you're using from 7i47?
[17:44:38] <Tom_itx> huh?
[17:44:54] <Tom_itx> i took a standard 7i47 one and modded it
[17:45:07] <Tom_itx> as you see in the link
[17:45:21] <Tom_itx> added sserial at the top and removed a dummy entry
[17:45:22] <micges> what stuff you will connct to 7i47
[17:45:39] <Tom_itx> 7i48? i think it is
[17:45:44] <Tom_itx> 7i84
[17:46:14] <Tom_itx> pcw_home was talking about it with me yesterday i think it was
[17:46:22] <micges> what else?
[17:46:33] <Tom_itx> all the other io is used
[17:46:46] <Tom_itx> as the standard functions for a 7i47 are mapped
[17:46:53] <micges> ok
[17:47:32] <micges> then
[17:47:39] <Tom_itx> all the stepgen are
[17:47:47] <Tom_itx> or at least the pins are reserved for
[17:47:57] <micges> you must use one encoder line input for RX
[17:48:36] <Tom_itx> is that what QCountTag is?
[17:48:53] <micges> yes its encoder line
[17:49:14] <Tom_itx> at the I/O 04 line
[17:49:15] <Tom_itx> i get that
[17:49:40] <micges> you could use index if you don't use it
[17:49:46] <Tom_itx> isn't the I/O 05 line associated with it?
[17:49:51] <Tom_itx> no i can't
[17:50:02] <Tom_itx> because of how the 7i47 rx tx are mapped
[17:50:39] <Tom_itx> i can't just grab any of the free io
[17:50:51] <Tom_itx> only certain ones that are mapped to the RXx TXx pins
[17:51:05] <Tom_itx> and that one i can free up pretty easy
[17:52:30] <micges> so you want to use first pin of port 4 on 7i47 as sserial RX?
[17:52:48] <Tom_itx> just a sec
[17:54:48] <Tom_itx> i'm not sure what you mean by port 4 but i want to use RX0 which is pin 9 on the 50 pin mapped to IO 4 on the 7i43
[17:55:22] <micges> the same
[17:55:42] <Tom_itx> and TX0 which is pin 41 mapped to IO 20
[17:56:22] <Tom_itx> i just am not sure how to handle the functions that get replaced on those lines that have multiple pins associated with them
[17:56:35] <Tom_itx> assign them as NullTag?
[17:57:10] <Tom_itx> i see at least 4 QCountAPin listings
[17:57:23] <Tom_itx> and i'm not sure how many pins are associated with that function
[17:57:35] <Tom_itx> i presume 3
[17:57:49] <Tom_itx> an A a B and X
[17:58:17] <Tom_itx> on io 4, 6 and 8
[17:58:39] <Tom_itx> i need to account for the 6 & 8 io
[17:58:48] <Tom_itx> dont' I?
[17:59:08] <pcw_home> You can chose only the pins that you need (so if you have an encoder you may just use A and B or perhaps A only)
[17:59:24] <Tom_itx> so it won't affect the other functions?
[17:59:29] <micges> http://pastebin.com/2RNmmxVv
[17:59:50] <micges> should work
[17:59:56] <pcw_home> QCountA is a quadrature counter A input
[18:00:15] <Tom_itx> ok
[18:00:22] <Tom_itx> so a b and x are all associated
[18:00:26] <Tom_itx> as i thought
[18:00:58] <Tom_itx> but i'm not using the alternate functon on those pins so should i assign them as NullTag?
[18:01:31] <pcw_home> null tag is for pins that are GPIO only (no secondary function)
[18:01:49] <Tom_itx> well if i interrupt the A on the quadrature it's not really gonna function right
[18:02:10] <Tom_itx> since IO 4 is currently Quad A input
[18:02:15] <Tom_itx> and i'm gonna use it
[18:02:52] <Tom_itx> so as a matter of completeness i think i should assign them as NullTag
[18:02:57] <Tom_itx> or am i wrong?
[18:03:21] <Tom_itx> http://tom-itx.dyndns.org:81/~webpage/cnc/configs/sherline/PIN_SVST2_4_7I47SS_TOM_48.vhd
[18:03:27] <Tom_itx> that's what i'm looking at
[18:04:09] <Tom_itx> micges i agree with your post
[18:04:30] <Tom_itx> i just wonder if i should do something with those unused pins on those other functions i removed
[18:05:39] <Tom_itx> which would be pins 6, 8 and 21
[18:06:27] <micges> http://pastebin.com/8h1ZPMAw
[18:06:41] <micges> yes you should
[18:06:49] <pcw_home> YOu would also have to re-number the encoders since you are dropping encoder 0
[18:06:58] <Tom_itx> ok
[18:07:14] <micges> yes
[18:07:54] <pcw_home> 1<=0 2<=1 3<=2
[18:07:55] <pcw_home> and num encoders in moduleid set to 3
[18:08:42] <Tom_itx> ok
[18:09:06] <pcw_home> what does sssvst2_2_4 do?
[18:09:28] <pcw_home> that has everything you need
[18:09:40] <Tom_itx> are the stepgens mapped the same?
[18:10:03] <Tom_itx> i don't wanna to alot of rewiring
[18:10:17] <Tom_itx> besides, this is a good exercise :)
[18:11:10] <Tom_itx> pcw_home, where is moduleid found?
[18:12:09] <pcw_home> the PINXXX file you are editing is 2 constant records (structures) the top structure is the module ID
[18:14:56] <atom1> you mean the x"02" following the QcountTag in the top structure?
[18:17:34] <Tom_itx> i don't know the format of that top structure
[18:17:44] <Tom_itx> what the x"00" all mean
[18:17:48] <Tom_itx> for each entry
[18:19:33] <atom1> i see 4 encoders mapped in my file
[18:22:41] <pcw_home> module ID fields are:
[18:22:42] <pcw_home> TAG
[18:22:44] <pcw_home> VERSION
[18:22:45] <pcw_home> CLOCK
[18:22:47] <pcw_home> INSTANCES
[18:22:48] <pcw_home> BASE ADDRESS
[18:22:50] <pcw_home> NUMBER OF REGISTERS
[18:22:51] <pcw_home> STRIDES
[18:22:53] <pcw_home> MPBITMASK
[18:22:54] <pcw_home> so the 2 is the encoder counter version
[18:23:23] <atom1> why would i need to change those then?
[18:24:09] <pcw_home> you need to change the instances (from 4 to 3) as you have removed one encoder counter
[18:24:44] <atom1> (QcountTag, x"02", ClockLowTag, x"04", QcounterAddr&PadT, QCounterNumRegs, x"00", QCounterMPBitMask),
[18:25:44] <pcw_home> right the x"04" is the INSTANCES
[18:26:06] <atom1> ok so just change that to 03 and all is good
[18:26:31] <atom1> good to know
[18:26:53] <pcw_home> assumin your have only 3 encoders (renumbered in the pin list so you only have 0,1,and 2)
[18:27:06] <Tom_itx> right i get that part
[18:27:17] <Tom_itx> just didn't know what the structure at the top was
[18:27:32] <Tom_itx> then i also need to edit the sserial entry to 1
[18:27:38] <Tom_itx> the one i'm adding
[18:27:47] <Tom_itx> as well as the pwm entry since i'm removing one of them
[18:28:04] <Tom_itx> i'll post what i come up with for your critique
[18:29:57] <pcw_home> you should copy paste a sserial line from a new PIN file the stride field needs to be correct (00 is not right)
[18:30:28] <pcw_home> stride is x"10" for sserial
[18:31:15] <pcw_home> otherwise the LinuxCNC driver will bail
[18:31:26] <atom1> (SSerialTag, x"00", ClockLowTag, x"01", SSerialCommandAddr&PadT, SSerialNumRegs, x"01", SSerialMPBitMask),
[18:31:30] <atom1> as such?
[18:32:06] <atom1> err no, i got that backwards
[18:32:15] <atom1> 10 not 01
[18:33:02] <atom1> and that did come from another pin file..
[18:33:10] <atom1> .vhd file
[18:53:22] <atom1> ok i haven't tried compiling it yet but here's what i came up with: http://tom-itx.dyndns.org:81/~webpage/cnc/configs/sherline/PIN_SVST2_4_7I47SS_TOM_48.vhd
[19:29:10] <pcw_home> Looks about correct though you should probably change the package name
[19:44:48] <atom1> i tried running it and got errors
[19:45:12] <atom1> i did rename it temporarily
[19:46:47] <atom1> [ 9080.330863] hm2_7i43.0: firmware: requesting hm2/7i43-4/SVST2_4_7I47SS.BIT
[19:46:47] <atom1> [ 9080.334307] hm2: bitfile has invalid header
[19:49:26] <atom1> something wrong with the sserial tag in the top structure
[19:50:11] <atom1> (SSerialTag, x"00", ClockLowTag, x"01", SSerialCommandAddr&PadT, SSerialNumRegs, x"10", SSerialMPBitMask),
[19:55:02] <pcw_home> looks alright to me
[19:56:08] <atom1> i may have messed something up copying it over. i'm gonna try it again
[19:56:45] <atom1> i wasn't sure how to set up the script to compile it so i renamed it to the original filename
[20:09:39] <atom1> pcw_home, do you have a build_bit.sh that works with 14.5 ?
[20:09:56] <atom1> i'm trying to use an old one i had for 9.2
[20:10:14] <atom1> or build.py or whatever it needs...
[20:13:01] <pcw_home> No I just build via the GUI
[20:13:14] <atom1> how do you launch that?
[20:13:20] <atom1> i'm using terminal right now
[20:13:25] <atom1> in linux
[20:13:54] <pcw_home> not sure ('ISE' maybe)
[20:14:01] <atom1> not really that xilinx savvy
[20:14:33] <atom1> heh, no
[20:15:20] <pcw_home> If you turn on the debug options in your ini file you can ge more detailed HM2 idrom debug info
[20:15:37] <pcw_home> (man hostmot2)
[20:16:28] <atom1> i set debug back to 0... just changed it back to 0x7FFFFFFF
[21:08:51] <atom1> ok i think i got the build file to work
[21:09:18] <atom1> seems to be taking alot longer as i recall with 9.2
[21:13:38] <pcw_home> Are you using the source from mesa?
[21:13:54] <atom1> yes
[21:14:09] <atom1> it finished but i ended up with a .PIN file not a .BIT file
[21:14:21] <atom1> and an .xml and .vhd
[21:14:49] <atom1> i did 2 at once, the normal 7i47 one and mine
[21:14:52] <atom1> they both compiled
[21:15:11] <atom1> and ended up in the fw/7i43-4 directory
[21:15:22] <atom1> that seemed normal
[21:16:41] <atom1> stopped with an ERROR 2 on the compile apparently
[21:16:59] <pcw_home> did you change the package name, if not you will probably overwrite the bit file with the last one made
[21:17:06] <atom1> yes
[21:17:20] <atom1> the name in the file matches the filename
[21:17:34] <atom1> i'll repost what i have
[21:17:42] <pcw_home> yeah if you dont have a bit file, there was a compile error
[21:18:01] <atom1> i might revert to 9.2 because i know it worked
[21:18:08] <atom1> or will that not be new enough?
[21:18:20] <pcw_home> it will fail on the new source
[21:18:45] <atom1> you wanna try to compile the vhd?
[21:19:12] <pcw_home> like any compile you need to grok the error messages
[21:23:36] <pcw_home> If run from a script you probably need to find where the error messages are logged
[21:24:01] <Tom_itx> yeah
[21:26:48] <pcw_home> "error 2" is a bit to vague
[21:27:18] <atom1> http://tom-itx.dyndns.org:81/~webpage/cnc/configs/sherline/bitfiles/
[21:27:36] <atom1> that's the original file and the xml and pin it generated
[21:28:28] <atom1> i'm sure it's an issue with the script
[21:28:47] <atom1> since i copied it over from 9.2 and modded it
[21:30:40] <atom1> i copied the .sh and firmware.txt files over as well
[21:42:30] <atom1> haha
[21:42:47] <atom1> i think i got the gui to launch
[21:46:15] <pcw_home> the sh file will not match the current source very well
[21:46:57] <atom1> how do you compile from within the ide?
[21:47:06] <atom1> i managed to launch it and load the file
[21:48:41] <pcw_home> load the file?
[21:48:55] <atom1> opened it in the project manager
[21:49:06] <pcw_home> opened what?
[21:49:30] <atom1> pin_svst2_4_7i47ss.vhd
[21:49:47] <pcw_home> You will have to open a project file
[21:50:30] <pcw_home> try hm2epp.xise
[21:51:44] <atom1> oh, don't create a new one?
[21:53:17] <atom1> what directory are they in?
[21:54:35] <pcw_home> they are in the zip file
[21:54:35] <Tecan> http://i.imgur.com/ZQ1k3n5.jpg
[21:54:40] <Tecan> checkit :)
[21:54:53] <atom1> oh from mesa?
[21:54:54] <atom1> hmm
[21:59:18] <andypugh-iPhone> Bored! My flight time meant getting to the airport 8 hours before departure. Four hours to go.
[21:59:29] <atom1> heh
[22:00:09] <atom1> do you happen to know what time to show up at the meeting place?
[22:00:26] <andypugh-iPhone> The only thing open is Costs coffee. I can't even pass the time by getting drunk.
[22:00:53] <andypugh-iPhone> (Which is probably a good thing)
[22:01:52] <atom1> zlog
[22:03:29] <skunkworks> andypugh-iPhone: have a good trip! See you wednesday
[22:07:28] <andypugh-iPhone> The trip nearly started badly, I managed to dither long enough to end up catching the very last train to the airport.
[22:08:32] <andypugh-iPhone> Though there would have been to walk it. In fact I did once. It took 4.5 hours.
[22:08:47] <skunkworks> yikes
[22:09:26] <andypugh-iPhone> I was young and foolish at the time.
[22:10:14] <andypugh-iPhone> Ok, logging out.
[22:10:24] <atom1> have a good flight
