what is the apt line I add to the package manager? is it 'deb http://wwww.linuxcnc.org/'
I cannot seem to find that anywhere
got it. (forgot my laptop had the emc repositorys installed)
wow - lucid boots fast.
the config for the k&t works on lucid
(as far as it is - 2 mesa board both worked)
(machine powered up and the tool chain still workes) :)
question.. I had run the latency test off of the lucid live cd on this asus motherboard. ran great - latency less than 15k
Thats not a question
ran it for a good 4 hours or so. the system had 2gb ram
the same motherboard in the k&t only had 512mb ram. (128 used for video) and the latancy was crap >100k
Are bios settings the same?
is the 2gb of memory making having 1gb limit for the rt kernel -> the video share never effected it?
not a big deal - I just put a video card in it and now the latency is well under 15k
I guess I can test this more monday - I could remove the memory from the other motherboard and do the same test. The only difference was installed vs livecd
(the k&t was installed on the HD with 512 ram while the one I tested with good latency was 2gb off the livecd)
So, no video card & 512mb = high latency, with video card & 2gb = low latency?
Does the mobo have on-board video?
no - no video & 512 high latency. No video card 2gb low latency. video card 512mb low latency. When I say 'no video card' I mean 'on board video - shared memory'
still cannot believe how fast it boots.
Yeah lucid is ftw :-)
anyone have an estimate on how long till next livecd release?
so no chance of adding software to it?
when it will be out, you can rebuild livecd with programs you want, there are instructions on net
where are rebuild instructions?
there are few
I'll ask our livecd builder to put livecd rebuild intructions on wiki
I'll also use this instruction myself
cradek, tested out the G99 G98 change, and all looks fine and working here with number of test programs, G83 fix also works grate all as exspected
micges: the instructions I used for the hardy livecd are in git
eventually the instructions for the lucid LiveCD will end up there too

robh__, micges : ^^ most of that still applies
should I update the wiki to say 2.4.3 release?
robh__: great, thanks for testing
there are a couple places which need updating in the wiki
stump uprooted :0
jthornton: big one?
took 3 1/2 hours with the backhoe to dig it out
alex_joni: in io struct names and such what purpose have AUX in names? like EMC_AUX_INPUT_WAIT
that was the second one dug one out yesterday that took 4 hours
gotta make room for addition to shop :)
micges: historical reasons only
initially there were separate controllers for each part
I thought so
there was a separate AUX controller that was communicating with the IO controller
remember that emc was initially started as a testcase for rcslib
so there were lots of (unneeded) NML channels
mess in one word
well.. call it what you want
mess, overengineering, etc
luckily there are such things as redesigns ;)
but redesign emc will be not an easy task
one step at a time ;)
so I'm at one step now
one small step for a man..
alex_joni: as for adding tool logic to task: I think all io logic (estop, din, dout, tool, coolant and lube) should go to iotaskintf
then taskintf and iotaskintf will be talking to motion via shared memory
only traj, spindle and config part should be left in taskintf
micges: sounds good to me
iotaskintf is new, right?
no it's there now
it's task interface to iotask now
ah, the one sending NML messages?
the only odd thing will be that only one of taksintf and iotaskintf will get status from shm
I think iotaskintf will be slave to taskintf and update it's status
like now emcTrajUpdate()
