[00:02:19] <seb_kuzminsky> hm, for some reason buildbot can't copy properties through Triggers :-(
[00:02:43] <cradek> seb_kuzminsky: did you mean 5133 and not 51332 in your email?
[00:03:00] <seb_kuzminsky> so for now when you force builds, be sure to specify the branch you want to build, like this: /msg emc2-buildmaster force build master 'because i say so'
[00:03:04] <seb_kuzminsky> cradek: yes please
[00:03:12] <cradek> ok
[00:03:23] <seb_kuzminsky> my cable modem won't port-forward above 49000 for some reason
[00:03:33] <seb_kuzminsky> oui oui, c'est tres fromage

[00:25:08] <seb_kuzminsky> ah oops
[00:25:18] <seb_kuzminsky> that's not how you use "force build"
[00:25:31] <seb_kuzminsky> ok, i taught it to use "master" if you don't specify a branch
[00:26:02] <seb_kuzminsky> so you can force a build now like this: /msg emc2-buildmaster force build master-checkin 'because unspecified branch works now'
[00:26:04] <seb_kuzminsky> ot
[00:26:14] <seb_kuzminsky> it'll build master by default and it'll work

[01:25:54] <seb_kuzminsky> it's a bit brittle...
[01:26:07] <seb_kuzminsky> but now it's a bit less brittle
[01:26:20] <seb_kuzminsky> forcing a build without specifying a branch should work now
[01:26:36] <KimK> seb_kuzminsky: Hi Seb, if the buildbot is feeling better, have you got a minute?
[01:26:45] <seb_kuzminsky> i have about one minute before i gotta run
[01:26:48] <seb_kuzminsky> what's up? :-)
[01:28:21] <KimK> OK, then think about this. I've got the driver running again, so I'm now about back where I was when I had to quit on it. So are there two parts (RT and non-RT) to the -122 kernel? How can I tell what I'm running on? How can I test it on the RT side?
[01:29:01] <KimK> I mean, it couldn't be working in RT for "free" could it?
[01:29:14] <seb_kuzminsky> think of it as a regular non-realtime linux kernel, with the rtai realtime kernel running underneath
[01:29:19] <seb_kuzminsky> logically that's how it's set up
[01:29:47] <seb_kuzminsky> practically, though, all kernel code (linux and rtai) is loaded into the linux kernel as regular linux kernel modules
[01:29:52] <KimK> OK so drivers will likely connect with "the usual suspects", and not the RT part?
[01:29:58] <seb_kuzminsky> right
[01:30:41] <seb_kuzminsky> in this sense, your kernel driver will be realtime if you compile it with the emc2/rtai build system instead of the regular linux build system
[01:30:43] <KimK> OK. I'll have a "phony" git web server going before long and I'll send you an email. Or should I post to the list?
[01:31:09] <seb_kuzminsky> to the list might be better
[01:31:28] <KimK> OK. Thanks! Now you gotta go.
[01:32:19] <KimK> Bye
[01:32:39] <seb_kuzminsky> ok see ya kim :-)

[06:21:19] <mhaberler> psha: hi!
[06:22:51] <psha> hi
[06:23:19] <psha> SWPLinux: logger_dev is down
[06:24:49] <mhaberler> I've completely rewritten the toolchange-osub stuff, it's now in http://git.mah.priv.at/gitweb/emc2-dev.git/shortlog/refs/heads/toolchange-osub-try2
[06:24:50] <mhaberler> I added a new NML message to convey the gcode sub call, which all works fine except the proper call in emctaskmain.cc ca line 1897
[06:24:52] <mhaberler> this is where I'm stuck
[06:26:44] <psha> fetching
[06:27:15] <mhaberler> if you try to reproduce, try emc owordm6.ini (see the RS274 N6_COMMAND, T_COMMAND ini defs
[06:28:48] <mhaberler> there are corresponding t.ngc and m6.ngc files in nc_files
[06:30:35] <psha> you hit 'FINISH' thing
[06:30:41] <psha> i guess
[06:30:42] <mhaberler> sort of
[06:30:56] <psha> why not to use EMC_TASK_PLAN_EXECUTE?
[06:31:13] <mhaberler> probably ok as well, I go from unknown to complex to simple...
[06:31:32] <psha> if you use EMC_TASK_PLAN_EXECUTE you'll hit this check
[06:31:40] <psha> if (emcStatus->task.mode != EMC_TASK_MODE_MDI) {
[06:31:41] <psha> emcOperatorError(0, _("Must be in MDI mode to issue MDI command"));
[06:32:13] <mhaberler> and then just fix up that, you mean? ok, will do
[06:33:16] <psha> you have to check is it possible to add new parameters to old messages
[06:33:25] <psha> or this break everything
[06:33:39] <mhaberler> ok, I'll rewrite it to queue an EMC_TASK_PLAN_EXECUTE, wasnt really awre it's already what I wanted.
[06:34:06] <mhaberler> parameters.. it's really only the pocket number in T<pocket> which could be affected
[06:34:15] <psha> no
[06:34:30] <psha> it's 'ignore check "mode == MDI_MODE"'
[06:34:51] <psha> just move it down the road
[06:34:56] <psha> rewrite not needed i guess
[06:35:26] <mhaberler> hm.. on what criteria ignore the check?
[06:35:44] <psha> why not to reuse same processing block?
[06:35:54] <psha> on 'Ignore this check!' flag :)
[06:36:15] <psha> or on some global var flushed in mdi_execute_abort function
[06:36:43] <psha> and flagged when your ..._GCODE_SUB message processed
[06:36:57] <psha> but global var is not good
[06:37:22] <mhaberler> oh, you mean leave the GCODE_SUB message and ignore if this message type was seen?
[06:38:30] <mhaberler> and handle in same case as TASK_PLAN_EXECUTE?
[06:39:11] <psha> yes
[06:39:50] <mhaberler> got it
[06:39:52] <mhaberler> btw I found a mdi call bug yesterday, but not a fix (just to keep you busy while I'm rewriting :-) see yesterdays log
[06:40:50] <mhaberler> probably in terms of pre- and postconditions I should handle the GCODE_SUB identical to TASK_PLAN_EXECUTE
[06:40:59] <psha> time?
[06:41:44] <psha> http://psha.org.ru/irc/%23emc-devel/2011-01-17.html#14:25:41
[06:41:45] <psha> this one?
[06:41:51] <mhaberler> yes
[06:42:23] <psha> that's ok :)
[06:42:42] <mhaberler> this is it: verified. calling an o-word sub from MDI fails if ini DISPLAY/OPEN_FILE points to a nonexistant ngc file.
[06:42:43] <psha> since it's unable to return state to same as it was before call :)
[06:42:44] <mhaberler> OK? ??????
[06:43:07] <mhaberler> what a great error message then: 'file not open'
[06:43:19] <psha> it's from somewhere inside interp
[06:44:05] <mhaberler> I *think* its interp_o_word.cc line 184
[06:44:33] <mhaberler> anyway, minor..
[06:45:09] <psha> i guess it's somewhere in Interp::reset or in push in o_word
[06:45:25] <psha> yes
[06:45:35] <psha> before pushing context it checks it
[06:45:44] <psha> if context is invalid it's not possible to push it
[06:45:59] <psha> and thus it's not possible to return back when everything is done
[06:46:10] <psha> maybe this check has to be relaxed....
[06:46:37] <mhaberler> I understand that.. it's just that the error message is totally confusing
[06:50:26] <psha> i guess it may be fixed but it may brake several places in interp
[06:50:41] <mhaberler> forget it, its not important
[06:51:57] <mhaberler> maybe the task_plan_execute message just needs a flag to tell it is ok to execute if not in MDI mode
[06:52:22] <mhaberler> that's less invasive than the separate nml message
[06:53:10] <psha> not obvios
[06:53:46] <mhaberler> that's a bit too opaque for me ;-) what do you mean?
[06:53:52] <psha> new NML message is something that don't infulence others in any way
[06:54:04] <mhaberler> fair enough
[06:54:13] <psha> but extra param is better :)
[06:54:19] <mhaberler> see...
[06:54:35] <psha> but you have to check if it breaks others or not :)
[06:55:24] <mhaberler> it touches way fewer source files
[06:55:26] <mhaberler> dont think so - if it's properly defaulted, set in one place only, and tested in one place only I cant see how it should break thinks
[06:55:51] <psha> this messages is used from many places
[06:56:07] <mhaberler> yeah, but not the flag, it's a blind passenger
[06:56:56] <psha> but surely it's not great issue - everything will be rebuilt
[07:00:40] <mhaberler> what's really the condition - ok_in_auto?
[07:01:07] <mhaberler> ok_in_non_mdi sounds really odd
[07:02:09] -!- LawrenceG has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[07:04:34] <psha> something with 'force' will be nice
[07:04:36] <psha> or 'ignore'
[07:05:35] <mhaberler> ok
[07:06:54] <psha> that's not 'ok' but forcing execution
[07:07:26] <mhaberler> you misunderstood my ok
[07:19:35] <psha> heh, if speaking in terms of what's it - it's 'do it in any mode' i think
[07:19:52] <mhaberler> probably,yes

[08:44:34] <alex_joni> heh
[08:45:18] <psha> $%#@!* chars are confusing me :)
[08:48:22] <psha> alex_joni: maybe it's better to upload last day log to linuxcnc.org but keep logger out of there?

[09:11:01] <psha> its a pity... hard to choose without any background in subject...

[13:37:36] <psha> jepler: may you clarify a bit what you mean under 'and how well (if at all) can the existing documentation URLs, including URLs with #anchors, be preserved?'
[13:39:56] <psha> under existing 'URLs with #anchors' you mean is it possible to compile docs so links from external sources to EMC docs won't be broken?
[13:40:23] <psha> or links generated from \ref{} tags?

[13:47:37] -!- Valen has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
[13:48:08] <jepler> psha: right, so URLs don't change
[13:48:25] <jepler> for instance, will the gcode quickref, which has hand-coded URLs, break until somebody edits it
[13:48:52] <jepler> (of course, for all I know it may be broken now, as jt has split the gcode reference up and may not be maintaining it .. the gcode quickref is handcoded html, unlike anything else in our documentation)
[13:51:33] <psha> http://www.linuxcnc.org/docs/devel/html/gcode_main.html#sec:G0:-Rapid-Linear
[13:51:36] <psha> links like this?
[13:52:10] <jepler> right
[13:52:50] <psha> http://psha.org.ru/wiki/docs/gcode/main.html#sec:G0:-Rapid-Linear
[13:52:55] <psha> 'out of the box'
[13:53:01] <psha> for rst i think it will be same
[13:53:07] <jepler> ok, good.
[13:53:23] <psha> but there are several section names with spaces in them
[13:53:34] <psha> i've spoted some in hal
[13:53:51] <psha> at least docbook validator in asciidoc is complaining about invalid chars
[13:54:24] <jepler> psha: so about compatibility, you mentioned that tables have changed in asciidoc over the last few years.
[13:54:49] <psha> i've not noticed that - just guess based on you link to 'new style tables'
[13:55:07] <jepler> psha: so if somebody writes on ubuntu 11.10 a year from now, it might not build on ubuntu 6.06
[13:55:12] <jepler> or it might build and give wrong results
[13:55:20] <jepler> that's the situation we have with lyx (it won't build at all)
[13:56:19] -!- mk0 has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
[13:57:08] <psha> certanly there may be added some new stuff - like === section names added in ~2005
[13:57:31] <psha> but in opposite to lyx nobody forces you to use them
[13:59:14] <jepler> true
[13:59:41] <jepler> I wonder if building a new table construct with a very old asciidoc leads to error (so that we can depend on buildbot to let us know about the problem) or just makes documentation that looks different than desired
[14:01:24] <psha> if it's compiled with a2x (which first converts things to docbook) then it fails if something goes wrong
[14:01:38] <psha> if it's done with 'asciidoc' then it provides _some_ result
[14:01:44] <psha> maybe with optional exit code
[14:02:06] <jepler> well, gee, it might be because I am a computer programmer but I'd rather have errors when things are wrong
[14:03:31] <psha> rst2* just replace invalid block with some notification
[14:03:50] <jepler> well that you might at least be able to grep for and abort the documentation build with an error
[14:03:50] <psha> but exit code is 0

[14:29:35] <psha> hm, where is there SGML like features?
[14:30:04] <psha> i've not used sgml or derivatives (except html) so i'm dumb with it
[14:32:07] <Jymmm> I'm using LDP as the basis (maybe a bad/outdated example) http://en.tldp.org/HOWTO/DocBook-Demystification-HOWTO/

[14:34:35] <Jymmm> If you intend to output to html, you'll need to deal with sgml at some point.
[14:34:47] <Jymmm> There's also indexing and cataloging too
[14:36:03] <psha> yes, that's strong side of asciidoc - it leverages power of docbook but retains simplicity of lightweight markup
[14:36:27] <psha> that's why there is proper TOC and correct footnotes in the bottom and many other goodies
[14:36:43] <psha> but - it's not more then complex match-and-replace tool
[14:37:09] <psha> and that's limit it's extensibility
[14:37:11] <Jymmm> Like I said, I like asciidoc in CONCEPT, not sure about it in practise
[14:37:38] <psha> have you dealt with RST?
[14:37:44] <Jymmm> nope
[14:38:33] <psha> heh, rst seem to be quite widespread but nobody i've asked is using it :)
[14:39:26] <Jymmm> Docutils is in active development and should be considered experimental.
[14:40:44] <psha> it's only one year younger then asciidoc
[14:41:00] <psha> 2003 for AD, 2004 for docutils
[14:41:11] <JT-Shop> Jymmm: AFAIK nitrogen tanks are lease only... the only (can be owned) tanks that should show up used are the small ox/acc and co2 tanks again AFAIK
[14:41:41] <skunkworks> we have a small nitrogen tank. (should have I said that outl loud?)
[14:42:04] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: You can buy. ppl are using them for beer brewing. 20cf starts are $140, 80cf aorund $190
[14:42:05] <JT-Shop> like the small co2 tanks?
[14:42:35] <skunkworks> I don't remember - it is about 8 inches in diameter and about 16 inches tall
[14:42:38] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: 20 40 and 80 cf are what I've seen so far.
[14:42:54] <Jymmm> skunkworks: tha'ts 20cf
[14:42:55] <JT-Shop> Jymmm: you use co2 for beer http://suburb.semo.net/jet1024/BeerHome.htm
[14:43:03] <skunkworks> (we use it for filling hydraulic accumulators
[14:43:11] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: nitrogen too, for a Guiness style beer
[14:43:22] <JT-Shop> I don't drink that
[14:43:41] <JT-Shop> now I know more about nitrogen than I did this morning
[14:44:10] <Jymmm> It costs $12 to fill a 20cf, and $20 to fill a 80cf tank
[14:44:18] <Jymmm> err s/12/13/
[14:45:19] <JT-Shop> if the tank is out of date you have to pay for a pressure test before they will fill a user owned tank
[14:45:34] <Jymmm> 80cf tank is about 52 lbs
[14:45:40] <JT-Shop> I have some small co2 tanks that I can't get filled without paying for a test
[14:45:41] <skunkworks> yes - that is common. (testing)
[14:45:49] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: so you make sure that you refill it before then
[14:46:04] <JT-Shop> that only works once
[14:46:21] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: No, becasue they exchange the tank, not refill on demand
[14:47:28] <JT-Shop> ok, like my small ox/acc tanks
[14:47:45] <Jymmm> =)
[14:47:52] <JT-Shop> some places will fill your co2 tanks on demand
[14:48:00] <Jymmm> Ah, gotcha
[14:48:22] <JT-Shop> but not in Swamp East Missouri, you have to go to a city to get that
[14:48:47] <Jymmm> $20 refill, $40 hydrotest
[14:49:43] <Jymmm> so if you have only used 1%, of the gas, it's still cheaper to get it refilled (exchanged) thank hydrotest + refill (on demand)
[14:49:52] <Jymmm> s/thank/than/
[14:50:11] <Jymmm> if its coming close to date
[14:51:06] <Jymmm> that's how it was explained to me yesterday at one welding supply house
[14:51:33] <Jymmm> and no, they dont give you credit for the gas in the tank you bring in =) I asked
[14:52:00] * JT-Shop stops pretending to know anything and shuts up now... I didn't stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night
[14:52:31] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: no need for that. Just passing on what I was told is all
[14:53:23] <Jymmm> I just hate the idea of buying a BRAND NEW tank, and exchanging it for a used one is all.
[14:57:42] <Jymmm> skunkworks: 7" x 20" tall 30# == 40cf it seems
[14:58:12] <skunkworks> ah

[14:59:09] <Jymmm> skunkworks: sad that it's only $3 more to fill a 80cf than it is to fill a 40cf
[14:59:38] <Jymmm> 20-40-80cf == 13-17-$20
[15:00:09] <skunkworks> the problem with nitrogen is it doesn't change to liquid at a sane pressue. so the tanks have to be beefy :)
[15:00:38] <Jymmm> skunkworks: I dont want liquid at all, just gas
[15:00:52] <skunkworks> right - but you get a lot more ;)
[15:00:59] <Jymmm> skunkworks: I thik its kinda cool that you can fill your tires with nitrogen too.
[15:01:06] <skunkworks> (if it was like co2)
[15:01:26] <Jymmm> skunkworks: No LN2, I'd get myself into WAY TOO MUCH TROUBLE!
[15:01:59] <Jymmm> skunkworks: We had a 5000gal LN2 tank at where I worked once, gawd that was fun =)
[15:02:20] <skunkworks> heh
[15:03:04] <Jymmm> I'm already looking for mini handheld tanks for nitrogen that I can refill myself from a 40cf tank to replace "cans of air" that you would use to clean out your computer and stuff.
[15:04:08] <Jymmm> But the cost of them is high, it be cheaper to actually run plumbing for a valve than buy a mini tcan

[21:40:44] <ries> I am pretty sure I compiled against the right version of Linux and RTAI...
[21:40:48] <cradek> dmesg will tell you what symbol is unknown
[21:41:25] <ries> cradek: it's hal_parport: Unknown symbol parport_register_device
[21:42:09] <cradek> weird, I think that's a normal kernel symbol

[21:43:13] <ries> Linux emc2 #17 PREEMPT
[21:43:33] <ries> I compiled it myself... I just tried 2.3.4 again, and that works without a itch
[21:43:57] <cradek> you've got some parport options wrong for your kernel - compare with our config
[21:44:17] <cradek> 2.3 didn't cooperate with the rest of the system's parport stuff, 2.4 does
