EMC: 03cmorley 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/hal/classicladder/config_gtk.c: fix problems with input of info crashing window
Can someone help me please ?
When I am ont the RTAI kernel, my screen is all white
on the RTAI kernel...
alex_joni. are you available for assistance?
I might just be :)
the hal component 'toggle' takes an input and an output.
when it is 'toggled' the output stays 'on'.
right.. so it's like a "T" latch
the only way i can get it to release is to 'toggle' it again.

(unless it has an reset pin..)
have to ineterface a bunch of momentary switches and it would be really nice to have a 'reset'
i've tried all sorts of timers and combinations thru cl, but a reset would be the best.
or some other ????
well.. you could look into flipflop.comp
maybe you can use that ..
any examples of flipflop use?

and giyf ;)

i have not looked at the source for 'toggle' yet, but i am going to and see if i can possibly add a reset.
oh, kinda like rtfm.
i'm thinking more of actual hal usage.
[12:50:45] <alex_joni> http://cvs.linuxcnc.org/cvs/emc2/src/hal/components/toggle.comp?rev=1.2
<- toggle.comp :)
Roguish: hal usage shouldn't be very hard
no, got that one, how about flipflop?
only change toggle with flipflop
oh, heck. i can probably figure it out.
man flipflop ..
Roguish: DATAJA :)
i am working on a new machine with a new computer. an amd chip.
i loaded the non-amd64 8.04. is this ok?
will emc2 run with the amd64 kernel? and what is the primary difference?
the amd64 kernel is a 64bit kernel
it should work on systems with more memory (more than 4G anyways)
and it's a SMP kernel.. so you can run it on more than one CPU/Core
oh, yeah, what's the deal with the 1 gig ram limit?
rtai 3.6 and below have bugs concerning 32-bit systems with more than 1 gig ram
modified version of toggle.comp to add reset pin; lightly tested: http://emergent.unpy.net/files/sandbox/toggle.comp
and 32-bit systems have trouble addressing more than 3-4G of memory
right now I recommend using the 32-bit version of ubuntu for emc if you want a stable production system
i will be happy to play ginnypig.
jepler: was it this weekend?
the 64-bit rtai kernel crashes about once a week .. I am currently testing a newer kernel which has now been up 19 days which is better than before
alex_joni: was what this weekend?
the new release you were hoping to do
<- if certain persons get their act together
jepler. how do i go about using that comp? is it in trunk?
I was hoping for the weekend of the 19th, but that's only because at the time I was planning it was the next weekend I could possibly do it
Roguish: are you self-compiling or using the package version?
Roguish: if you're self-compiling, replace toggle.comp with that version and recompile.
jepler: ok, so this weekend will be the 19th, will book it solid (I hope that nothing turns up :)
alex_joni: OK, i hope nothing comes up for me either
so, there's a 2nd input? toggle.x.reset ?
maybe I can have a working kernel/CD by then
Roguish: after replacing, and make, you can ". scripts/emc-environment" and then man toggle
gentlemen, thanks. gotta run to the clients site. i will be back on in a while. ciao dudes. watch the Tour!!!
(tour de france)
cradek: jepler: Are you here?
