new emc2, emc2-dev ubuntu packages in the repository
cradek: more tests on todays debs..
cradek: I changed display config to mini
cradek: it runs fine on the slow P200 here, but it depends on a courier font that is not installed on ubuntu for the large position display (defaults to small text)
cradek: on the bdi version, I was able to set the position display font in the ini file by defining POSITION_FONT = Arial 42 bold in the display section
cradek: I am not having any luck finding a font that works... any suggestions?
cradek: second issue.... my stepper drive uses quadrature phase drive, not step/dir
cradek: in the bdi version, in core_stepper.hal. one changed to loadrt stepgen cfg="2 2 2"
cradek: in this release, the var seems to be step_type=0,0,0.... if I change this line to 2,2,2
cradek: never mind... need to dig up the correct pin names for the phase A and B outputs from stepgen
cradek: headed off to bed now willcontinue testing tomorrow
how's it going?
I should be getting myself to work!
running a little late, so I sit chatting on the computer
funny how that works
heh, I'm done for today
that's nice for a change :D
good, you have a whole evening to relax
and maybe work on emc ;)
yeah, my only problem is that my ssh pc's don't have realtime on them
and most probably the realtime detection of configure will fail
need to see how I can work around it
you'll have to commit a change and wait an hour for the compile farm to build it for you
sounds a little inefficient
cradek: are you there?
I need some help
I managed to install autoconf, but now i'm missing gcc
and I don't think I can install gc & co
gcc & co
it's a SuSE 8.2 system , almost impossible to find/satisfy all deps.
you could never compile anyway, right?
I don't have RT over there
Is there a good reason that rtapi.conf is generated by make, not by configure?
jepler: probably only historical reasons
it was generated before configure.in was written
I just told chris some autoconf foo to make the version stuff properly
so check with him if you want to commit..
merging errors on configure are a PITA
* alex_joni is taking advantage of some time off to read on xenomai
nice work jeff, it's easier to overview now
alex_joni: "easier to overview"?
yeah, to see where it's coming from
did I say I hate closed standards?
you mean for rtapi.conf?
