EMC: 03jepler 07v2.4_branch * r93eb9a2d6d14 10/src/hal/utils/halcmd.c: halcmd: show errno for failed exec
no kidding... one of these days I'll have to have a go at adding lathe modes to big johns arcbuddy program
does Flying Electron's latest email make sense to anyone?
"using an on-board serial port causes a square wave to appear on the 7i43 gpio inputs"
hi seb. can you fix http://emc2-buildbot.colorado.edu/~buildmaster/
to have the right lines for emc2-buildbot.list?
hmmm.. the only thing I can think of is watchdog tripping
the v2.4_branch lines are all wrong
that's a really fuxxed motherboard if the serial port doesn't work
jepler: what's wrong with them?
oh missing hardy
* seb_kuzminsky blushes
shouldn't it say deb http://emc2-buildbot.colorado.edu/~buildmaster
hardy v2.4_branch ?
(I guess it wouldn't surprise me if some motherboards have badly-working serial ports on them)
master-rt shouldn't be there at all
alex_joni: but the watchdog doesn't automatically un-watchdog itself..
jepler: maybe he has petting the watchdog in a thread
lol what was i thinking when i wrote that
but the serial port causes bad latency which interrupts it
that would be just stupid
petting the watchdog doesnt un-hork the 7i43 if it's bitten
there's petting the watchdog and there's resetting it
you have to do something (set a pin to 0) to reset it
well.. without a look over his hal files it's just guessing
that's an unusual, non-default configuration that would deserve mention
oooh it's lunchtime here
what if he's unexpectedly using the pin as an output too, possibly configured as open collector? Then he could be getting the value he's driving onto the pin or the value from the connected button
anyway, too hard to tell from here, but it sounds like nonsense
alex_joni, The vismach of the Puma560 you made is not exactly the same as a real puma 560
jepler: fixed http://emc2-buildbot.colorado.edu/~buildmaster/,
JanVanGilsen: I started from skunkworks_'s puma drawing
seb_kuzminsky: can you add a link to the wiki page describing new config changes?
Yes, Actually thats the drawing of a Puma 550 (the 5 axis model)
alex_joni: you want that link on the buildmaster page saying how to install the 2.4 debs?
seb_kuzminsky: no, what to do with the configs to run 2.4
I have drawings of both the 550 and 560 model, if you want I can mail them to you
JanVanGilsen: would be great
alex_joni: ah, i think you want me to update the wiki page with changes required to hostmot2 configs when going from 2.3 to 2.4
seb_kuzminsky: hmm.. that might be good, but not what I had in mind
alex_joni: ok then i'm totally confused.
I was thinking about placing a link on the buildbot page:
when you want to try out experimental 2.4 packages, follow (link to wiki) to update your config
otherwise your pre-2.4 config won't start
oh, sure, good idea
Its a +/-5 mb file.
alex_joni: like this? http://emc2-buildbot.colorado.edu/~buildmaster/
alex_joni, The drawings you should look at are on page 155 and 160
The outer link assembly is different for the 6 axis version because it has to hold an extra motor. as you can see, there is an offset between joint 3 and 4
seb_kuzminsky, alex_joni: I also have a copy of "The Unimation Puma servo system" with a lot of useful information on the Puma including comparison of the DH parameters found in different studies
It helped me a lot in finding the right gear ratio's etc...
skunkworks, if you want i can send you the "The Unimation Puma servo system" file ?
