[03:04:19] <jmkasunich> jepler: whats the openssl for?
[03:04:50] <jmkasunich> never mind, its already there
[03:05:45] <jepler> openssl is required by python for some reason
[03:05:56] <jepler> I think its socket module can use ssl or something
[03:07:35] <jmkasunich> that python RPM is now installed on slot 1
[03:07:43] <jmkasunich> slot 2 I mean
[03:07:48] <jmkasunich> all four are compiling now
[03:08:11] <jmkasunich> plod, plod, plod
[03:08:56] <jmkasunich> did you see daveE's last mail?
[03:09:16] <jmkasunich> I wonder if my changes to halmodule.cc broke something?
[03:09:57] <jmkasunich> short visit
[03:10:43] <jepler> jmkasunich: I dunno. my first set of checkins for 'comp' were broken, but not in a way that would have made it complain about halmodule
[03:11:31] <jmkasunich> and it certainly compiles now, on at least two systems
[03:11:57] <jmkasunich> but daveE might not be running the latest
[03:12:34] <jmkasunich> Linking python module hal.so
[03:12:34] <jmkasunich> /usr/bin/ld: cannot open output file ../lib/python/hal.so: No such
[03:12:34] <jmkasunich> file or directory
[03:12:41] <jmkasunich> cannot open _output_ file?
[03:12:57] <jmkasunich> so its not a missing file... maybe the dir is missing?
[03:15:44] <jepler> it should be created by checkout
[03:15:51] <jepler> he was missing a -d ?
[03:16:09] <jmkasunich> I'm writing a mail to him, to update -dP and try again
[03:16:29] <jepler> he may need to 'rf -rf lib'
[03:17:39] <rayh> dave's got 5.10
[03:17:48] <jepler> me too
[03:17:51] <rayh> I think the packages are current.
[03:17:55] <jmkasunich> me 3
[03:18:18] <jmkasunich> jepler: I assume you meant rm -rf lib?
[03:18:25] <jepler> yes
[13:05:33] <rayh> What does readline do for a developer?
[13:05:45] <alex_joni> allow him to use halcmd easier from the commandline
[13:05:52] <alex_joni> it has the tab-completion support
[13:10:17] <rayh> phone
[14:15:19] <alex_joni> don't want to spam that channel with devel or user talk :)
[14:15:33] <rayh> I've seen more encoders used for feed override.
[14:15:47] <alex_joni> more?
[14:16:00] <alex_joni> I know of a few users who already use it with halui
[14:16:01] <rayh> lately.
[14:16:14] <alex_joni> one encoder for feed-override, one for jogging
[14:16:26] <alex_joni> although that can be set up with the same encoder
[14:16:31] <rayh> Great stuff.
[14:16:36] <alex_joni> selection for X,Y,Z,FO,SO
[14:19:28] <rayh> Is it possible to start halui apart from the HAL section of the INI.
[14:19:32] <alex_joni> yes
[14:19:44] <alex_joni> like you start any other secondary GUI..
[14:19:47] <alex_joni> the hard way :D
[14:20:00] <alex_joni> bin/halui -ini path/to/ini
[14:20:12] <rayh> Okay. I see that.
[14:20:50] <rayh> And halui looks for certain INI variables?
[14:21:00] <alex_joni> very few
[14:21:09] <alex_joni> but it needs to find the nml
[14:21:14] <alex_joni> in order to talk to emc2
[14:21:21] <rayh> ah. okay.
[14:21:25] <alex_joni> so you probably need to get to the folder where the ini is
[14:21:29] <alex_joni> and run halui from there
[14:21:36] <alex_joni> cd configs/halui_halvcp
[14:21:37] <rayh> Nice.
[14:21:43] <alex_joni> ../bin/halui -ini ./halui.ini
[14:21:52] <alex_joni> err..
[14:21:55] <alex_joni> ../../bin/halui -ini ./halui.ini
[14:26:23] <rayh> yep got it. thanks again.
[14:26:26] <alex_joni> np
[14:27:25] <rayh> gotta run. catch you later.
[14:27:33] <alex_joni> yeah, bye
