the buildbot is now building lucid rt debs from 2.4 and master
I didn't use buildbot builds for emc2 btw, I did use update-dch-from-git though because I was building 2.4.2+git
on the CD that is.
mozmck_work: sure thing, those are the notes I used for building hardy CDs
you might want to upload one for lucid (for eternity's sake)
I also put the kernel config in git(CVS)
if you want to save anything for posterity, I suggest infrastructure.git/livecd
I have put my livecd notes for lucid in the same doc I have the kernel notes. I had planned to add them to the wiki here shortly.
cradek: does infrastructure.git exist currently?
yes, it's kind of a generic place for things other than the source code that we don't want to forget
we've had an infrastructure repository since early in the cvs days
ok. I didn't know about that, could have probably found helpful stuff there!
you can get an ssh checkout just like emc2.git
ok. I'll probably put my notes on the wiki as well since most of them are there already.
the wiki is good for notes but bad for something like a collection of release-making scripts
like always, it's hard to know where to put stuff - we have lots of choices.
thanks for going to the extra work of keeping notes and making them available
imo linuxcnc.org will be best place for such things
wiki, git, or www?
err www :)
on download page
I think he's talking about notes regarding how to build the cd. those don't belong on the download page.
yeah, these notes: http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?Ubuntu10.04Notes
I've filled out the livecd part more on my computer.
cradek: ok, so I think installing EMC2 page on www can be
I should make some scripts for doing the liveCD. would save some copy and pasting.
how do I make a script ask for a password on the command line and then use it for everything in the script?
micges: yes that page needs an update when mozmck is happy with the cd, which is NOT yet
mozmck_work: maybe 'sudo true' and let sudo do its normal caching trick?
mozmck_work: can all the steps be done as root? If so, 'sudo sh realscript'
you mean call the script that way jepler?
I guess I could do that.
I think they can all be done through sudo.
(or bash instead of sh if it's a shell that uses bash constructs)
mozmck_work: the link I gave you was from infrastructure.git
untested, but something along these lines will restart the script in sudo if not already running as root: if [ $(id -u) -ne 0 ]; then exec sudo bash "$0" "$@"; fi
alex_joni: I see. I didn't even notice when I looked at it. I'll have to 'git' it tonight.

jepler: in 2.4 branch you don't add ~pre to VERSION, is it intended>
I know it's different than we did for along time. Is it causing trouble for you?
no, just notice it
while working on removing iotask and moving all functionality to rt I have few questions:
what hal name should be taken for estop: (motion.aux.estop)?
what hal names for tool pins, coolants ? (io.coolant-flood or aux.coolant-flood or motion.io.coolant-flood) ?
I need comments
micges thanks I don't have to close one eye now to keep from getting dizzy when I look a the dro tab :)
good night all
micges: I would prefer to see compatible names.
