micges: hi.. my pc crashed.. probably HDD error
well.. not my PC, but the pc I had my irssi on ;)
new sourceforge view sucks
heh, doesn't it always?
for a moment no ;)
wizards: 03lerman 07master * r2ec70dafd798 10/GWiz/ (gwiz.py makegwiz.sh): Fix some bugs identified by Frank Tkalcevic:
I think I understand a certain old bug that would come and go
it's the one where the backplot or the cone would sometimes get stuck
oh really? I think I remember seeing that. is that the one where you tweaked it and it went away without you ever understanding it?
jepler: what part you tweaked to bug gone away?
I haven't changed anything yet
I just think I might understand the cause
there's a big log test in axis.py that starts 'if (self.logger.npts != self.lastpts'
if all the tests are false, then no change has occurred, so there is no need to redraw
but that first test is wrong -- it's testing whether the number of points in the backplot changed, which isn't right when you're drawing a long line
furthermore, the update of lastpts looks again at the value of self.logger.npts, but that can change in the meantime
so the fix is to use a position, not a count; and to get it from the logger only once
aha, that sure is wrong (checking number of points)
wonder how many times we looked right at it.
programming is hard :-/
Just this once .. here's the log: http://www.linuxcnc.org/irc/irc.freenode.net:6667/emcdevel/2009-07-07.txt
alex_joni: have few minutes?
I have questions about joints_axes:
micges: I might have, but can also be quite inconherent this late
1. where axis daTA vel, acc, unit, (not joint like it was) should be stored?
alex_joni: you right its too late
micges: all I can say it's not that thought through
I started from the wrong end on it
although the part I did (mostly cosmetical - renaming axis to joints where appropriate) needs to be done anyways
the problem is to see what is needed to be specified in the ini
joint limits (vel, acc, etc) are certain
I've done hal names
do we also need axis limits? (vel, acc, travel, etc)
do we also need an overall traj limit? (vel, acc, travel, etc)
in trivkins its trivial :)
yeah, hence the name :P
EMC: 03micges 07joints_axes3 * r6be96d83cfee 10/src/emc/motion/motion.c: Change HAL pin names from axis.nn to joint.nn
ouch, all the configs :-)
cradek: scripts ftw
maybe you could remove all unneeded configs while you're at it
and alias :D
that change breaks all existing configurations
micges: there was a commit, that you changed motion pins from axis.nn to joint.nn
that will affect any config ;)
so I' gonna change configs
good night all
