cool, ed nisley has an article in digital machinist
it talks about cutter compensation, arc entry moves, etc
digital machinst is a paper magazine isn't it?
I guess I'll have to read it at the workshop
After the latest round of updates from Ubuntu, I'm back to a jerky Axis display.
It is using the same driver that was okay yesterday.
Only does it on lines not arcs. If I move the mouse it updates.
rayh: what updated?
I don't know what all. I just pressed update.
It did require a restart for some security updates.
how can I renice axis to get a higher priority.
Tried nice -5 for both axis and xorg -- no difference.
set them back to 0 and now it's running.
argh, my hardy/amd64 machine crashed again -- this time it had been up about 2 weeks, I think
Yuck. I didn't want to hear that.
are you running the 64-bit OS or the 32-bit OS?
I've got a stock beta on and64 and EMC2 on 32
as far as I know, Alex hasn't had any crashes of his 32-bit real time kernel
Not had any real trouble with either
the crash was on an rtai?
yes but I'm fairly certain that rtai was not loaded when it crashed
(hm, or was emc still running after I tested that fix for G43 in axis preview?)
I trust the hardware more than I trust the adeos kernel patch :-P
I know that feeling. Where was I when ....
I'm downloading alex's i386 cd. I have a machine to play with.
right now I'm thinking I won't promote the amd64 version or create a Live CD .. but I should put the packages in the repository so that the intrepid can try them.
Sounds good to me. I'd like to try the amd64 sometime.
Is this the first crash you've seen with the 64?
no, it's crashed each time I've left it up long enough
(this is the third or fourth time)
rayh: updates are logged in /var/log/dpkg.log. if you think an update changed your behavior you could see what they were
grep "status installed" /var/log/dpkg.log
2008-04-22 08:39:13 status installed python-uno 1:2.4.0-3ubuntu6
2008-04-21 07:36:25 status installed python-dev 2.5.2-0ubuntu1
and I did recompile this morning
which video driver did you end up with?
It did seem to clean up the timing so my monitor matches the other boxes on the kvm
There are at least a hundred updates yesterday and today.
the update reconfigured X for you??
I looked and it didn't seem to.
Still the same driver and display
Just tried a restart of gnome and it does not want to work.
seems to be doing better after dpkg --configure and restart.
rayh_ is now known as rayh
jepler: I had some crashes on i386 too, but I think that was related to the -12 kernel
it crashed with the unpatched kernel too
I think I'm still on the -12 kernel; maybe I should upgrade
but I had no crashes with -16 yet
otoh, I haven't let it running for 2 weeks
hovers around 24ipm at g64p.00005
is that inches?
that's a pretty small tolerance
but - running strait g64 takes 1min40seconds or around 4ipm
I was lowering the tollerence until I saw an effect on feed rate.. (Lower than 30ipm)
or would that be considered raising the tollerence? ;)
4ipm per email?
3.77 per email?
sorry - I probably not making sense
the vfd interference thread
according to an e-mail message, someone's machine went at 4IPM in the condition under test
G94.1: Feed in units per email
G94.2 Feed in emails per unit
is inches per minute per email a way to represent acceleration?
it's inches / emails / second
maybe acceleration is actually the rate of changing in the wording inside spam emails / second
I really like how people use the same thread/email subject to refer to a huge variety of things
that's so irritating
they just reply to any old message
sorry - I should have replied to jons email - he changed the subject
I replied to jmks
probably their mailreaders are too stupid to show threads, so they don't know any better
jepler: why would that circle program I posted show a velocity of 0 run as is?
