[00:24:22] <tissf> good night all
[01:04:34] <jepler> good night tissf
[09:54:15] <tissf_> tissf_ is now known as tissf
[12:38:36] <tissf> hello all
[12:39:20] <jepler> hi tissf
[12:40:49] <tissf> jepler: how resolv the empty author declaration problem ?
[12:41:05] <jepler> tissf: I'm not sure -- it appears to be a bug in the lxy2lyx script
[12:42:16] <jepler> it may be necessary to manually remove it after running lyx2lyx, or it might be fixed if you specify an author in the document properties--did you try this
[12:42:19] <jepler> ?
[12:43:03] <tissf> I re look for
[12:44:28] <jepler> I am getting an error when I try to build the documentation:
[12:44:27] <jepler> make: *** No rule to make target `/home/francis/emc2.TRUNK/docs/src/common/axis_fr.png', needed by `depends/Master_User_fr.d'. Stop.
[12:45:11] <jepler> sometimes when you choose a file using the file browser, lyx writes the full pathname. but this is never what you want, because the full path will be different on my system.
[12:45:51] <tissf> bad one !
[12:46:22] <tissf> ah axis_fr.png not commited
[12:46:43] <jepler> the fix is to make the path a relative one. In this case, it's "../common/axis_fr.png"
[12:46:56] <jepler> but yes now I discover that the file isn't committed either
[12:48:20] <jepler> I've made a file docs/src/index_fr.tmpl. You will again need to fix the parts that I did not translate. This file will go in the documentation as .../index_fr.html, and provide links only to the documentation in french.
[12:48:40] <jepler> alex_joni: can you do anything to fix the CIA bot?
[12:48:41] <tissf> correction for the next commit
[13:05:25] <tissf> jepler: it seems that the whole process of translation works well :)
[13:05:36] <tissf> I really am amazed by the whole work of the team EMC2
[13:07:18] <skunkworks> they are an incredible bunch..
[13:08:01] <jepler> it doesn't matter whether it works well if there are not people like you who are willing to do the actual work
[13:08:05] <jepler> so thanks again
[13:09:46] <tissf> Thank you first!
[13:10:50] <cradek_> cradek_ is now known as cradek
[13:12:01] <alex_joni> jepler: I talked to guys in #cia
[13:12:11] <alex_joni> they said they will investigate.. but nothing more I can do about it
[13:12:17] <alex_joni> btw, they did know about the mute problem..
[13:13:13] <tissf> rahh sim.var commited another time :(
[13:13:25] <alex_joni> tissf: yup, just wanted to say that
[13:13:35] <alex_joni> it's always best to do 'cvs diff' before commit
[13:14:10] <tissf> ok
[13:14:11] <cradek> if you do not put the log message on the command line, you can see in the editor which files will be committed
[13:14:59] <alex_joni> btw, hi all
[13:15:06] <jepler> hi alex
[13:15:07] <tissf> yes, I have to adapt my way
[13:15:26] <tissf> hello Alex
[13:16:14] <alex_joni> jepler: I think the CIA stuff has gone public (code is at google code, various people working on it), etc
[13:17:34] <alex_joni> hmm.. and they also have a CIA VM image, so we could in theory run our own server
[13:17:57] <alex_joni> http://cia.vc/blog/
[13:24:43] <alex_joni> hmm.. seems I tricked it by creating a new bot for #emc-devel
[13:30:39] <CIA-40> 03alex_joni 07TRUNK * 10emc2/configs/sim/sim.var: fix accidental commit
[13:35:56] <tissf> I have to leave, bbl
[13:36:03] <alex_joni> tissf: a bientot
[13:36:09] <alex_joni> jepler: is this good enough?
[13:49:12] <jepler> alex_joni: is what good enough?
[13:49:25] <jepler> oh, you mean that cia is on the devel channel?
[13:49:43] <jepler> I dunno whether #emc-only people valued <CIA>, I suspect maybe not
[13:51:40] <cradek> I know steve s. has suggested that cia messages come here
[13:51:44] <cradek> I think it was him anyway
[13:52:36] <alex_joni> well.. I can't revive the bot for #emc
[13:52:44] <alex_joni> it seems it died, but not completely
[13:52:58] <alex_joni> signing up for another bot for emc-devel meant we got a fresh one..
[13:53:23] <alex_joni> I also submitted a bugreport to cia (http://code.google.com/p/cia-vc/issues/detail?id=5
[14:21:58] <alex_joni> bbl
[16:27:45] <jepler> argh, utf-8 vs iso-8859-1 bites again on http://linuxcnc.org/docview/2.2/html/index_fr.html
[16:31:40] <CIA-40> 03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/src/index_fr.tmpl: linuxcnc.org website "docview" requires that html pages be in iso-8859-1
[16:40:12] <CIA-40> 03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/src/Submakefile: fix extra junk included in french doc index
[17:23:39] <tissf> I have a cvs Conflict with index_fr.tmpl file, I can't understand why ?
[17:25:38] <SWPadnos> if you're just trying to check it in, it's because jepler just made a change, so the version on the server is newer than the version you started with
[17:25:55] <SWPadnos> he madea checkin about an hour ago
[17:25:58] <SWPadnos> made a
[17:27:48] <tissf> How to solve this?
[17:28:06] <SWPadnos> well, I'm not the best person to help with that :)
[17:28:22] <tissf> sorry, thanks :)
[17:28:55] <SWPadnos> you can copy your modified version to another directory, then update (to get the new version from the server), then make the change in your copy, move it back, and then check it in
[17:29:07] <SWPadnos> but there may be a simpler way :)
[17:31:16] <tissf> yes ok no problem
[17:50:54] <alex_joni> tissf: just cvs up
[17:51:06] <alex_joni> you will eventually get a merge error which you need to sort out manually
[17:51:31] <alex_joni> (that means in the file you will have stuf with >>>>>>>> which are your changes, and stuf with <<<<<<< which are the latesc changes in TRUNK)
[17:51:40] <alex_joni> you then need to decide which to remove
[17:55:51] <skunkworks> hmm - it is either a argon or krypton on loaser
[17:55:53] <skunkworks> laser
[17:55:57] <skunkworks> oin
[17:55:59] <skunkworks> jeez
[17:56:01] <skunkworks> ion
[17:59:29] <alex_joni> say again?
[18:00:05] <cradek> * cradek reboots skunkworks
[18:00:22] <alex_joni> make that a hard reboot
[18:00:42] <jepler> * jepler reinstalls
[18:01:02] <alex_joni> apt-get install --reinstall skunkworks
[18:01:26] <alex_joni> hmm.. I just discovered an amazing feature the other day
[18:01:42] <alex_joni> I didn't know you could tab complete after apt-get install
[18:01:57] <cradek> bash-completion works in all sorts of surprising circumstances
[18:02:08] <cradek> ./configure --enable-[TAB][TAB]
[18:02:17] <skunkworks> hmm - it is either a argon or krypton ion laser
[18:02:17] <alex_joni> yeah, they did add a lot of stuff for bash-completion
[18:02:18] <cradek> make-kpkg [TAB][TAB]
[18:02:21] <jepler> dpkg-reconfigure -p low skunkworks
[18:13:47] <skunkworks> ok - it is a 10mw argon laser. Looks like they run easy at 50mw. still not too high.
[18:14:07] <alex_joni> mW ?
[18:14:09] <skunkworks> if it runs - I think it is going to be an ebay item. :)
[18:14:21] <skunkworks> milliwatt
[18:14:24] <alex_joni> what do you plan to do with it?
[18:14:38] <skunkworks> most likely ebay. I really have no use for it.
[18:14:47] <alex_joni> what is it good for?
[18:15:02] <skunkworks> it was used for exposing film in an image setter..
[18:15:07] <skunkworks> other than that I don't know
[18:17:11] <cradek> my 30 taper tool setting fixture came - it looks like someone has used it as a bench anvil
[18:17:25] <cradek> mostly cosmetic, the taper is ok except at the top, I can stone that part down
[18:19:24] <skunkworks> yeck. but I suppose it would make a anvil.. ;)
[18:19:59] <cradek> it was "new" by the way :-/
[18:20:06] <cradek> very cheap though
[18:20:11] <skunkworks> yikes
[18:20:43] <skunkworks> so it does sit in the taper?
[18:21:03] <cradek> yes looks like (I don't have anything here to try it with)
[18:21:22] <cradek> I'm probably just going to use it to measure heights, so I'll fix the taper, and stone the bottom flat
[18:33:21] <cradek> if I knew any trig, I'd be able to figure out how perpendicular it has to be in order to get heights within a few inches' range close enough (< .001 off)
[18:34:42] <skunkworks> I hope you are kidding ;)
[18:34:58] <cradek> :-)
[18:35:40] <CIA-40> 03tissf 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/src/index_fr.tmpl: French translation
[18:41:37] <alex_joni> tissf: are you around?
[18:54:09] <alex_joni> tissf: I was thinking.. if you're doing so nicely on translations, maybe you want to translate a couple of the www.linuxcnc.org pages
[18:54:22] <alex_joni> tissf: let me know if you'd like, I'll fill you in on the details
[18:54:35] <alex_joni> (no pressure ;)
[19:18:08] <tissf> Alex_joni: yes no problem
[19:20:33] <tissf> I would like to translate these pages
[19:20:55] <alex_joni> tissf: I sent you a private message..
[19:58:22] <alex_joni> * alex_joni prods SWPadnos
[21:08:08] <SWPadnos> alex_joni, what?
[21:09:58] <alex_joni> SWPadnos: I need some group-write access on www.linuxcnc.org
[21:10:04] <SWPadnos> ok
[21:10:16] <alex_joni> components/com_mambelfish
[21:10:38] <alex_joni> mambelfish.html.php especially
[21:10:55] <alex_joni> bbl
[21:11:14] <SWPadnos> ok. both .php and .html.php, or just .html.php?
[21:12:00] <SWPadnos> I did both. if you don't need one, let me know
