good morning people
gave bdi a try on my laptop last night .. I was able to run emc, but I wasn't able to work on getting rs274py running because (no surprise here) it doesn't work with my wireless network card
want to borrow my memory stick thing?
cradek: I can plug it into my wired network, I was just too lazy last night
jepler: rs274py needs a net connection to run ? :)
jepler: Prism 2.5 chip?
on the wifi?
alex_joni: ipw2200 actually
alex_joni: I could have copied the files from my hard drive, but some required packages aren't there and I had hoped to apt-get them
hmmm... any new drivers around for the ipw?
I know only of the 20$ version
the driver from ipw2200.sf.net works for me, and it's free.
does it run on 2.4?
I don't know. I have only used fedora core with kernel 2.6.
anyways... thx for the link
In order to use the IPW2200 driver you will need the following:
1. Linux (of course) with a 2.6.4+ kernel
that's why I asked
KERNEL REQUIREMENTS - 2.6
--------- ------ ---- --- -- -- - -
This driver is currently a 2.6 only driver. Due to time
constraints, we can not maintain a 2.4 backport of the driver.
If you would like to assist in this and maintain 2.4 backports,
please let us know.
well... when EMC runs on 2.6 ... maybe :)
so it looks like you're either porting ipw2200 or emc to 2.6 .. get to work!
ipw2200 to 2.4
or emc to 2.6
hmmm.. let me think
I guess I'll use my SMC Cardbus (Prism 2.5)
I suspect porting emc to 2.6 would be time better spent
don't want to take the pleasure away from paul...
I saw he started
anyways... don't know nothing about 2.6... so ...
* paul_c had emc2 partially compiled under 2.6
paul: far from success?
or otherwise put: many changes ?
Not at the time...
can it be fixed without ifdef's ?
like in emc1 #ifdef KERNEL_VER>2.4 #include <foo.h>
very little if any ifdefs required.
cool... then it could get merged back to HEAD...
It could if I had committed all the work...
but you didn't ?
hmmm... let me gues... lost it all ?
I'm gone... bye
I am not away...
les next time try /nick les
I did not even do a nick change
well well well Steve Ballmer is going to sue all of us Linux users now http://www.cnn.com/2004/TECH/biztech/11/19/tech.microsoft.linux3.reut/index.html
man i need a .47 uF polyester capacitor
anyone got one handy? :)
sure...right in the parts drawer....should I email it?
on the lighter side ever since the CIA has taken control of Afghanistan heroin production is booming! http://www.cnn.com/2004/WORLD/asiapcf/11/19/afghan.opium.ap/index.html
so I guess it all balances out
bypass cap for ic?
nah it's for a preamplifier
making a new guitar amp I'm not quite deaf enough yet
I just use an old fender 30
I have an old fender tube amp but it's dead and I well tubes are a thing of the past
It was the only fender with williamson ultra linear circuit
my transistor amps sound nice enough to me
so sounds a bit different
well I have several kW of solid state so I like em too
yeah the "warmth of tubes" is a bit of a myth except in a thermal sense
had to work on one last night
transistor amps can be "warm" too :)
an Alesis Matica
1350 Wrms bridged
yeah what was wrong with it?
the protection circuit has a relay that is going I thing
yeah I think they put relays into amps to stop speaker pop on power up too
some times shuts down....but tap the relay and it comes back on
this runs the servo fan
cold solder joint?
joints LOOK ok...real solid
Mouser has the relays for $2.50...I'll just order the and perhaps reflow the joints while the fan control board is out
30 amp relays
It's a good amp...real clean
fan speeds up when you crank it...servo controlled.
The thing drives two McCauley 15s below 80 Hz in the music room
and i thought i was rocking over here with my old samsung
I designed a quad ampped system
The crossover is Linkwitz Reilly fourth order using the Burr-Brown OP 604
woo burr browns are nice
about the best op amp for audio I have found
they're not that cheap in the world of op amps
but they are reasonable
well not like the .08 I pay for the 2902 quad in that sensor we are manufacturing
but a buck or two
where you usually get your parts from?
At unity gain I was never able to measure ANY distortion
digi key usually
for the aforementioned stuff I used metal film resistors and hand trimmed pp caps
yeah metal film so much better than carbon IMO
you know...grind them down from the top then clear em by plugging them in a wall socket
We have a capacitor division (Paktron) and they do just that when they need a quick custom value
well ...late lunch for me...back in a while
drat... Another python bug to track down...
paul_c: what's this python program you're working on?
oh, the redhat installer?
I've never looked at it, despite all my years as both a redhat/fedora user and a python fan
speaking of Python:
>>> import emc
>>> c, s = emc.command(), emc.stat()
>>> c.mdi("g0 x1 y1 z1")
>>> s.poll(); s.actual_position
(1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0)
jepler: don't give away all our tricks yet
cradek: don't worry, I'm saving the best for when it works...
