well 4 errors actually
same thing yesterday when I tried
it looks like you have the wrong thing in your sources
the thing from the buildbot website is wrong
you probably want this for v2.4_branch:
let me check that the machine where I have those lines will upgrade to the latest..
yes, it's going to download http://emc2-buildbot.colorado.edu/~buildmaster/dists/hardy/v2.4_branch-rt/binary-i386/emc2-dev_2.4.0~pre1-12-g6725cc0_i386.deb
jepler: thanks that is working now
it almost worked Preparing to replace emc2 1:2.3.4-1 (using .../emc2_1%3a2.4.0~pre1-12-g6725cc0_i386.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement emc2 ...
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
jt-plasma: well I have no idea what the heck that's about
mine set up and installed just fine
last line of output was: Setting up emc2-dev (1:2.4.0~pre1-12-g6725cc0) ...
is there someone who prepared emc sim packages for redhat or suse?
At various times in the past there have been, but I don't think anyone is keeping them up to date.
the most recent non-ubuntu package I'm aware of was a russian version of emc2+puppy announced this month: http://mid.gmane.org/E1Ncca9-00076Xemail@example.com
jepler: should I try the download again?
jt-plasma: yes, and do the 'apt get' in a terminal (rather than going through synaptic) just in case that gives more information .. then pastebin the full output if it still didn't work.
jt-plasma: if that still causes issues, try sudo apt-get -f install
the apt-get seemed to go well but when I try and run emc I get this http://pastebin.ca/1803140
this is dmesg http://pastebin.ca/1803145
trying sudo apt-get -f install now
jet@plasma:~$ sudo apt-get -f install

can you check if /usr/share/doc/emc2/examples/sample-configs/sim/sim.var is there?
could it be this IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'sim.var'
jt-plasma: that's why it doesn't start
alex_joni: no it is not there
ah, I think I know what happened
* alex_joni checks
I'm glad you know what happened LOL
sim.var has been removed (as have all .var files)
usually (for run-in-place) that's no problem
as emc2 creates that file on startup if it doesn't exist
in this case however, since the config is in /usr/share/..., it can't create the file because of missing permissions
so the real answer is create a copy of the config (as the launcher tells you to), and run that for now
so if I save the config it should work
we'll have to find a way around this before the release
ok, that works :)
there are 2 probable fixes: 1. restore the var files
2. make AXIS not fail if the var file is missing, and just use an internal default like emc2 does
jt-plasma: try sim/tkemc.ini without copying the file, bet that works
yep it works
pickconfig should have prompted you to copy the sample configuration. did you say "no" at that prompt?
or was it not shown?
jepler: he said no
well, I can't get too worked up about that failing
it "used to" work
I "don't care" about that

or some even stronger rewording
so you won't be able to run a sim from the LiveCD without installing first?
jt-plasma: you can run it, but you need to copy the config to your home dir (still on the livecd)
you can write to the cd after it is burned?
no, the /home is not on the CD
it's a ramdisk
* jt-plasma tries to remember how to fix this error libnml/buffer/physmem.cc 143: PHYSMEM_HANDLE: Can't write 10748 bytes at offset 60 from buffer of size 10208.
* jt-plasma hands jepler a cold (beverage of your choice)
* jt-plasma has to go and get clean clothes on to take my wife out to dinner...
it means your emc.nml is not compatible with 2.4
