jepler: I turned off the setting which makes apt get recommended files and got the lyx download to under 100 MB
I have a notes for building the ubuntu kernel and emc under 10.04. I haven't had time to mess with it for the last week or so.
"a notes" huh?
mozmck: aha, that's much better than 491MB!
yay for sensible defaults
yes. took a little while to figure out what all it really needed though. Let me boot my 10.04 computer in the back room and I can at least pastebin my notes.
I think I know what flag you're referring to
the latest rtai patch in magma seems to be better than the last number of patches
I'm only interested in running sim on this machine anyway (laptop)
yeah, but getting all the right packages is the problem
and the lyx errors are not very helpful sometimes :)
that's another reason I hate lyx
its only advantage is that we already have all this documentation in that format
oh yeah! I need to clean them up some probably. just stuff I got here and there and jotted down as I worked.
I appreciate it anyhow
one package no longer in 10.04 is numarray, and they say numpy is a replacement.
that's fine for them to say, but it requires source code changes to the bits of emc that use it (I think just image-to-gcode)
I haven't tested to see if it works yet or not, but I changed the dependency in the debian packages here and emc seems to run fine.
unless I missed something about numpy
ah, I haven't used image-to-gcode
python-numarray is in universe in lucid
you sure? I just checked in synaptic and it doesn't see it.
er, no, I accidentally searched karmic
I'd better look at this ASAP and see whether use of numpy can get into 2.4
haha "Run the following in lucid to put the window buttons back in their proper places:"
in the release candidate, the buttons move back to the accustomed place when you choose most any of the other themes.
jepler: welcome back?
only 6 days late because of that volcano :)
oh wow - didn't think of that..
did you sleep in the airport or give up and rent a hotel room?
we stayed in a hotel
that part was no trouble -- we already had a hotel in frankfurt, far enough from the airport and the center that the other stuck folks didn't find it
