I ran sims all day with alex_joni's kernel - no issues so far. (not actually running a machine)
SWPadnos is now known as SWP_Away
SWP_Away is now known as SWPadnos
I had a DSL service interruption, but cvs.linuxcnc.org should be available again.
jepler: works ok from here
alex_joni: so far so good :)
plan is to take the computer home tonight and actually try it out (going to require a diffent video card)
a generic ati card seems to have stopped the overruns :)
skunkworks: still at work?
for another 1.5 hours - needed a break
ok.. I stayed late at work today (about 9 pm), so now I'm pretty beat :)
wow - go home
no, I am home now :D
it's 11 pm ..
oh - never mind then :)
skunkworks: cool, we told you so
cradek: seems we actually have a clue :D
* alex_joni ponders..
should I give xubuntu a try?
go for it, especially if you can figure out the damned menu entry issue
it looks nice, but a bit more blue than the normal brown Gnome desktop :)
I kinda like gnome.. now that I used it for a while
it seems that KDE needs a menu .desktop file, or emc2 ends up under lost+found
I absolutely hated gnome whiles ago
I spent a bit of time trying to create a file in the correct format, and in the correct place, but I never got it to work
SWPadnos: if you figure out how it should look like we'll happily include it
well - that was the problem ;)
this is with kubuntu?
the documentation talks about a couple of methods of creating submenus and menu entries, but it isn't clear which is the "correct" one (the newer way)
if you find one that works with dapper, who cares if we'll have to do it again in some years
looking at KDE help center, they tell you where the files are kept (but they may be wrong)
freedesktop.org also has some info
it's just hard to tell which is correct, and I'm not sure I ever had a file that was quite the right format (though I copied another menu file as a basis)
ugh - gotta run for a bit (chores before the wife gets home :) )
ok - question :( - the default ati driver in ubuntu - is it closed source?
* skunkworks is looking at a locked up screen saver
I guessing I should have picked visa?
there are some things money can't buy
like a locked up screen saver
for everything else there's vesa
skunkworks: in breezy, I think it installs an open source one by default, but there's a closed one available
hmm - so I may have other issues
don't feel bad, we all have issues
I've found the default one to be dodgy on my laptop (especially in apps that use textuers), but it works well enough for axis
I will try to reconfigure with the genaric vesa driver and see
yeah that's pretty sure to work
or turn the screen saver off - descisions descisions
hmm.. anyone ever udes index'es in lyx?
I've done TOC in plain latex but that's all
I didn't know it could do an index
alex_joni: - ah - I just noticed the splash screen is working with this card.
then probably the card was busted :D
* alex_joni tries to get away from fixing that
cradek: indexes work easily..
when you write a document and decide some word is important (like AXIS :), you just put an index where the word appears
and then lyx creates a table at the end of the document usually, with a page numbers where those words appear
but it seems it doesn't like spaces or _ or any strange chars
all need escaping..
I know _ is special in math mode
yeah, and space is just busted
blank screen saver seems to work ;)
blank is best
new EMC2 User Manual at: http://www.linuxcnc.org/EMC2_User_Manual.pdf
I'm off.. bye
why would latency max go up and down? wouldn't max be max?
[21:13:01] <skunkworks> http://pastebin.com/768394
remember this is dapperdrake
I guess overall max is what I want to look at
it may be the max over that particular couple of second period
so the wiki should probably say 'ovl max' should be below your base period
I'm not sure how/whether "ovl max" is related to base period
ok - I think some one else mentioned that
sudo mkdir /dev/rtf; sudo mknod /dev/rtf/3 c 150 3;
sudo mkdir /dev/rtf; sudo mknod /dev/rtf3 c 150 3;
and the second one is correct?
the first one
it may be different for different builds of rtai, but the one we use uses /dev/rtf/3
really - I got an error running it the first time - it worked when I got rid of the /
I suspect you had a typo
copied and pasted it off the the wiki - I will try it again
you'll get an error now since they already exist.
but I can
but I can't just run cd /usr/realtime*/testsuite/kern/latency; ./run by itself after a reboot
I don't think so, unless alex found a way to get udev to do what we want
so I have to run the above before the cd..... ./run

that is why I got rid of the /
