note period of 'th1' -- ouch!
jmkasunich, is that a bug?
shouldn't it be possible to loart threads name1=mine period1=<larger than base_period>
looks like ont
I'd have to look at the code to see what is and isn't permitted
it is possible (at a lower level) to create threads as long as they are slower than the fastest one
but there is another factor - priority
each new thread (assumed slower than all previous threads) gets a lower priority
the only way to generically fix this is to not have motion create its own threads
instead, give it the mname of threads to attach itself to
actually, it doesn't even attach itself anyway - that's done in the HAL files
having motion create its own threads is one of those "make it easy for the noobies" things
I remember some discussions about it
("it" being the idea of making it a good HAL module, rather than a good newbie module)
SWPadnos: do you expect the Ubuntu 8.04 LiveCD to include emc2.2? (backdoor question about 2.2)
I'd hope that 2.2 is out before april of next year, so yes :)
hmmm. it should be OK for me to remove robots.txt from the irc log directory now, right?
I would think so..
thanks again for fixing my oops

can anyone help me out with this simple program and emc?
I am getting the 'Radius to end of arc differs from radius to start' error
I know I can make it work with an 'R' value, but I want to understand why this doesn't work
whoops, sorry wrong channel. I should be in #emc
