jepler: any idea why I could get "fatal: Not a git repository: '.git'" ?
when I try to git commit
in the wrong directory?
git diff works
git add didn't complain either
sorry, no idea
I'll try a new checkout :)
* alex_joni wonders if it's not date related
I had the wrong time/date when I checked out, then fixed it
that's an odd error, if so
seems I had git-core 1.1.3 installed
trying 188.8.131.52-1~linuxcnc now
1.1.3 is way too old to be useful
it's actually broken..
jepler: know of a good indent incantation?
since it's a new file, I'd like to indent it nicely before the initial commit
(currently it's set at 2 spaces indent :(
no idea how to run indent, sorry
you can try /set cindent
not for vim
oh, im sorry
I would really like if possiable, something simple to work on or at least look at
It could be code or math
what is a step over in gdb ?
e.g. I don't want it to go into a function it calls at the current line?
maybe next, not sure though
no, I think that executes a function
next is next line of code, it can enter and exit a function...
cool, the carousel has three proxes that give quadrature + index
how many positions?
I think I have it all wired now
how do you like the opto22 boards?
bigger though :)
the led on the input modules shows opposite what I think it should
but that's the only goofiness
hmmm. some of them could be inverted
yeah they are big, but that means the screws are easy to use
there's a different part number for that
oh they're not all the same?
thanks, I'll check that
are they reading the way you expect in HAL?
I have not run out of IO yet
yes they read in HAL correctly (signal on = hal uninverted input shows true = led turns off)
I like the fact that you can choose direction on a pin-by-pin basis
ok, that is odd
no, wait, I'm on drugs
they're proxes so they show high when not activated
so the led is right
hal is backward
and they all work so far?
yes so far
I didn't check all of them
I had to turn on all the invert_output params to get the output modules to work right
actually I only did one thing with a few, so I didn't really check any of them
yeah, I can imagine them being active-low
so all the logic between mesa and opto22 is inverted
and the pin numbers are reversed
yeah - I quickly stuck stickers over all those numbers
I'd have gone insane otherwise
