alex_joni: hey what's up?
I'm freaking pissed
on a ethernet connection
got 10-40% loss on it
nah.. bad cable
I changed the switch
changed the other parts receiver
I'll change it with an STP
ok I am working on my code still
it's going way too slow :/
an0n: you did some php.. right?
never mind.. found it
was trying to access a variable from php ($var)
but it seems on newer php's that doesn't work anymore
you need $_GET['var']
they deprecated it at version 3.somthing
is there a way to turn this off?
you can enable globals in the config
but that's a bad way
ffs dont do that
robin_z: he asked if it was possible not if it was any good ;)
its a HUGE security hole
very very insecure
whatever, just dont do it.
ok. I'll update the pages :)
alex_joni: do you know the names of your vars?
just do it before you use them and it should work out fine
perl -pi -e"s/\$var/\$_GET['var']/g" *.php
yeah that too.. but there aren't that many
or do what anonimasu said and explicitly import them
so adding that stuff ontop would be ok
errr. at the beginning of the page
you can easily imagine the security risk im sure.
I was wondering
how big is 21U ?
21 x 1.75"
about a meter
you'd be amzed how many PHP scripts cough up "interesting" data with blah.php?debug=1 ;)
21 * 1,75 * 2,54 .. right?
robin_z: mine does ;)
I think 21U should be enough for 2 PC's, one KVM, one Monitor & Keyb, one switch, maybe some telephone switch (1U)
oh, half a rack :)
in a colo?
a full size rack would be overkill
colocation facility .. data centre
nah.. next to my desk
probably won't fit under the desk :D
21u is large
I need to have some spare space
and I don't have 19'' rackmountable cases for the pc's
I just stick the machines "somewhere else" and use a laptop on the desk
ssh is my friend
mine too :D
my main server doesn't even have a VGA card :D
actually now it has (I had to stick a few more HDD inside)
its sort of useful... for the odd log in an find out whats broken sort of thing
needed a card to get to BIOS ;)
this is what I find weird about 'doze
linux boxen have ususally no X installed on servers
heh.. no /var/log/messages ?
Doze still has all that grapicla shit
on doze ;)
I miss that
and the crappy logs windoze has just annoy me
some things need the console still
like kernel panics :)
and cards dropping into promiscuous mode always flag on the console
if youve been hacked, thats usually the first warning
that or tripwire getting excited
signs binaries and stuff..
more to the point it watches certain directories
if stuff happens you didnt expect it "does stuff"
ranging from mailing you, to dropping the shutters on the firewall
how about unplugging eth?
thats effectively what i do, put a DROP rule in each of the iptables
iptables -P DROP
I like "drop in on rl0 from any to 192.168.0.1 probability 95%"
probability is a funnny function
whatever, tripwire works well
it saved a friend of mine just recently ...
it's mean as hell on lans
client didn't pay ...
is it a standard thing?
box was moved to new location ...
tripwire kept mailing him ... with its new IP
apparently, for some unknown reason, the disk died ... weird huh?
alex_joni: in openbsd's pf
is it available on debian-sarge?
alex_joni: apt-get install tripwire
although tripwire is
of course, putting your tripwire binaries and the keys on read-only media is not the workds worst plan ...
so tripwire --init should be enough?
well, review the policy file in /etc/tripwire/twpol.txt
and run tripwire --check from time to time, from cron
the truly paranoid keep their tripwire database on a seperate machine
robin: where do I specify actions to perform?
that says what will be checked
I've seen that
where do I specify what email it should send when it fails
* robin_z tries to remember
i think it's almost my bedtime but i can't seem to go to bed
what's the current topic of discussion?
or 50 pole brushless AC servos
fenn: any topic you'd wanna discuss?
try unmounting the resolver from that AC drive, then put it back on :D
well i'm going to go get a van norman 12 h/v milling machine
never done anything like that before, worried it might fall and kill me
alex_joni: auto intitialisation is the plan :)
or break my friend's trailer
robin: maybe a script is needed (check from cron, if tripwire --check fails, do some action like: mail ...)
alex_joni: hmm, nah .. tripwire --test --email sends a mail automagically .. jobs run from cron mail their owner anyway ...
fenn: 1800lbs since you say lbs, i assume you are in the US ...
check your towing laws :)
robin: yep indiana
bleh I need to go back to work
need to test this stuff on a plc..
in the UK, you would struggle to tow it legally
the code's growing like cancer.
I have 10 objects doing diff stuff, and I need to get some finished for other ones..
fenn: and you have some sort of hoist or crane at both ends of the journey?
i have a winch with which i hope to pull it up a ramp onto a trailer with
egyptian roller style
1800 lbs is a lot ...
keep your friends with you
yeah it is a big winch, but that's not what i'm worried about
the trailer is the worry
we just pulled a 35 foot sailboat onto the trailer a couple weeks ago with the same winch
well, sounds like the trailer will take the load
i gotta get it stood upright too, since it's lying on its side in the mud
if you could just drop it onto the ara above the axle, Id sya yes
handles busted off and belt covers smashed :( but for $200 its a steal
but pulling it aver than long ramp ...
that long ramp
i might be able to get the guys at the scrap yard to pick it up with one of their monster forklifts
much better plan
you think rolling it down a ramp is a good idea?
with the winch
depends on the trailer
giant fork lift is a great ideea
the bit over the axle is a good place to place it
what if i put blocks under the end so it didnt tilt down
but .. the long extended ramp ... I dunno
might just buckle and twist :(
maybe if you can tilt it and put blocks under at a couple of places
if you just block the end ..
well .. its like a bridge isnt it .. between the wheels and the end
thats what, 10 foot?
yeah i was intending to put blocks under the end of the trailer and under the middle of the ramp
i think its about 10 feet
the trailer, not the ramp (ramp's 6 ft horizontal)
yeah, I think
basically, with that weight
I wouldnt want it to go over any section of more than the base of the machine without a block under
so block it every 5 foot maybe
ok thanks for the advice
depends how big and butch your trialer is :)
hrm well i don't want to break it cause it's a not-really-friend of a friend's trailer
the best way with these thing is a fork truck
and gantrys work well
gantry means what?
big beam on legs
or steel beam in a ceiling
with thing that slides on i beam on bearings?
hoist it up .. drive the trailer out from underneath, lower it down
doesnt need to be that complex ...
don't know if i'm really ready for this thing or not
only prior experience is my gingery lathe :)
this thing is in a scrap yard?
hiring somone to tow it would probably be easy/cheap
or to lift it up the trailer..
for $50 they might even drop it off for you
dont risk your life if you dont absolutely have to
a mill for $200 is cheap
but $200 + 1 right foot is expensive
when a mill's on the roll it's on the roll.
the press I just moved cost $900 in crane fees ..
but I still have all my fingers and toes
i read an article about a guy who was trying to move a mill he bought at an auction, then it fell on him and nearly bit his leg off
he kept taking pictures :)
robin: ever changed your policy on tripwire?
if it starts to move, get away :D
I think I just did an init afterwards, to re-sign the db
brb, going to work now
I ran into some problems, when I do tripwire --update-policy twpol.txt
it complains about elements missing from the database
if I do a new --init it still uses the old policy
I think I have forgotten
can you make a useful tripwire database that will fit on a floppy?
### Error: Policy Update Changed Object.
### An object has been changed since the database was last updated.
### Object name: Conflicting properties for object /etc/tripwire
### > Modify Time
mine is 1.2m
if I do a tripwire --update it just says Error: File could not be opened.
and it fails to find the database
* robin_z tries a update-policy
well, if anyone's interested, I started a wiki on building a machine shop from the ground up
[12:10:30] <fenn> http://www1.atwiki.com/gingery_machines/
fenn: remember to add your machine to the EMC-wiki once working ;)
will cover everything from foundry and whitworth surface plates to hexapod machining platforms
alex: add my machine? the van norman or the hexapod or the lathe or my computer or what?
the wiki is on a wiki host
somewhere in japan
there's an emc-wiki (on redpoint.co.uk)
and there's a list with machines running emc
once you have an machine running emc, you might want to add it there
follow the wiki link
would someone care to add wiki.linuxcnc.org to the DNS and point it to www2.redpoint.org.uk
as a CNAME
bug Steve about that
as it's his hosting
Sounds good to me.
How does one go about that?
* alex_joni is starting to get annoyed by tripwire
modifying the DNS??
add the wiki.linuxcnc
just change the DNS
mcedit /etc/bind/zones.conf ;)
or whatever the file is called
probably some click & pray for doze (I think Steve is running it on doze)
And we'd do that on Steve's server?
on the name server
depends.. maybe Steve's server is the DNS server ;)
;; ANSWER SECTION:
well.. not ;)
pmdinc is his.
debian:/var/lib/tripwire# host ns1.pmdinc.com
ns1.pmdinc.com has address 220.127.116.11
debian:/var/lib/tripwire# host www.linuxcnc.org
www.linuxcnc.org is an alias for linuxcnc.org.
linuxcnc.org has address 18.104.22.168
so smae rack I gues

robin: dpkg-reconfigure tripwire seemed to do the trick
doing a tripwire --check outputs one error /etc config file changed
does the creative commons license actually provide you with any liability protection?
or is it just smokescreen
liability protection, hell no
its exactly what it says on the tin
is there even any such thing as liability protection?
if you want to copy it and use it feel free
so long as you offer the samew terms
i mean, if i tell someone to go stick their head in a furnace, what do i have to do so they can't sue me?
yes, I have liablity insurance
from the ccl: 6. Limitation on Liability. EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL LICENSOR BE LIABLE TO YOU ON ANY LEGAL THEORY FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THIS LICENSE OR THE USE OF THE WORK, EVEN IF LICENSOR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
afraid i only speak english, japanese, spanish, and italian
robin: when I run tripwire --check I get a violation on /etc/tripwire
and I did run an tripwire --update
but it still does the same, any ideas?
[12:33:43] <robin_z> http://www.tripwire.org/qanda/index.php
There does seem to be some discussion of REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
so somone in poland could sue me but not in argentina... hmmm
* fenn cackles
"Linux Today - InfoWorld: GPL May Be Unenforceable Under German Law"
apparently it is illegal to grow garlic in your garden in germany
I can understand that!
it is a medicine since it has "some beneficial health value" so yu are practicing medicine without a license ;)
well, the way it works
if you accept the GPL, you can use the software
if you dont, you cant
so if its not useable under German law .. then germans cant use Linux ...
SWP_Away is now known as SWPadnos
SWPadnos: how about adding wiki.linuxcnc.org pointing as a CNAME to www2.redpoint.org.uk
robin: that's stephen
* alex_joni was talking about SteveStallings
(sorry - should have marked myself !away after getting coffee :) )
I sent stallings a note a bit ago.

les: what's new?
oops was away
yeah .. me too
I was just checking about the birmingham cnc show
got some nice pics of your emc machine?
besides the one on lmwatts.com ?
hmm let me check
only a few...
I have one pic here of when it was being built
yes want it?
can you mail it to me?
sure...oh I also have autocad drawings
I can give you the drawings for the machine design if you want
thx.. that would be great too
got the message from rayh?
hi Alex, yes, trying to chat with Robin now, but no response yet
* alex_joni prods robin_z
DNS is on my server, but there are issues.....
as best I can tell (I am not a guru), the CNAME record must point to another server in the same domain, e.g. mywikiserver.linuxcnc.org
cnames can point to ANYTHING
dont forget the dot
I think what is needed is a redirect from a web server
its a CNAME thats required
but dont forget the dot at the end
wiki CNAME www2.repoint.org.uk.
if you do :
wiki CNAME www2.repoint.org.uk
then it becomes www2.repoint.org.uk.linuxcnc.org
the dot at the end is important
I know about the dot at the end. My DNS admin will even add it automatically. What it will not do is feed me coffee until I quit reversing the ALAIS and HOST fields.
robin quick qusetion: what is the name of that birmingham show?
robin: does www2.redpoint.co.uk even work?
OK, it is there, but I had to go for www.redpoint... instead of www2.redpoint.
Goes to default page on Quacky.
Steve: make it point to www2
I think robin is planning to add a CNAME from there to the actual wiki
OK, now that I know it works I will change back to WWW2
Of course all the DNS servers have the WWW address cached now. 8-(
robin has vanished on us
get mail alex?
Hey thanks for that Steve and others.
les: got some issues with my link :(
but the mail is there, just can't download it :((
I could dcc as well
The picture was during assembly of the machine
getting things square and straight to .01mm
it's not that big (about 1.5 Meg if I've seen it correctly)
which is a bit of work
Les, a few days ago you mentioned a GlentekCNC and I was wondering if they are related to the Glentek servo folks.
Hi Ray. What is the plan for wiki.linux.cnc? Should I change the links when it goes live?
but I am currently working with them
can't give much details...but I am contemplating selling a new type of cnc router
stevestallings: Don't think it matters much unless the wiki location changed.
not sure about the market though
a link to wiki.linuxcnc.org would be easier to maintain.
True. Figured that was the aim.
les: got the mail
* alex_joni goes home
item has finally came in the mail.
the DA300 collet holder.
alex take a look at the picture and drawing?
oops gone home
I am sorry for disturbing you, but I am just reading the Hal_introduction.pdf.........and i read about hal_parport program, and ither hal management progs
>bowika< and I can find these on my emc2 dir

I am sorry for disturbing you, but I am just reading the Hal_introduction.pdf.........and i read about hal_parport program and other hal management progs, and I can find these on my emc2 dir.
How can i compile them or why didn't these progs compile?
Bowika: I can't help you but there are a couple others that seem to be lurking or away right now that can.
ok thanks, i am waiting.........
picnet: Do you work with emc2?
There is no HAL stuff in the bdi-4 branch, and the head of emc2 won't compile on a 2.6 install
This needs to be resolved during the codeFest.
* paul_c pounces on alex_joni
* alex_joni pounces back
what's up ?
waiting for something to die prematurely...
what's gonna die?
Running a little app, and it spits out "we might die prematurely" once in a while.
but it won't top my favorite error message ;)
"you don't exist! go away!"
alex_joni: You're home.
look at the file and picture alex?
didn't get the chance to properly look at it, just a glimpse on both
[19:31:35] <alex_joni> http://www.plethora.net/~seebs/ops/ibm/cranky37.html
alex_joni: when you get a chance Bowika has a question about emc2 compiles.
He posted while you were out.
I'm trying to access the logsd
my questions were:
I am sorry for disturbing you, but I am just reading the Hal_introduction.pdf.........and i read about hal_parport program and other hal management progs, and I can find these on my emc2 dir.
How can i compile them or why didn't these progs compile?
Bowika: certainly you are not disturbing
I didn't use those myself, but if you wait a minute I'll take a look
i had a private chat with paul_c and he said that it won't work on bdi-4
Bowika: as I see it
you should get hal_parport and hal_skeleton compiled
what are you trying to do?
the other files in hal\drivers only have a RT component
and thus they only get compiled as modules (filename.o)
i just want to try how it works..
well.. if you really want to try you should go ahead and use the RT stuff
does emc2 work?
yes it works
ok.. then I assume hal is working properly
next you might want to try some hal components
do a scripts/realtime start
after that you can insmod the hal modules you want to play with
you have 'halcmd' (along with a lot of options) to set params, create signals, link those to pins
try to follow the steps in HAL_introduction.pdf
it will not work 'cause as i saw there was no realtime dir in the bin dirs
not in the bin dir
i only followed the commands of http://www.redpoint.org.uk/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?BDI-4_Install
is this bdi4 ?
yes it is
well then.. bummer
bdi4 is not emc2 :)
and it doesn't contain hal
and emc2 doesn't work on bdi4 neither
yes, it doesn't
that's because emc2 doesn't work on 2.6 (doesn't compile at the moment)
i downloaded the emc2 by cvs and did a "make" and blabla .....following the commands mentioned above
are you sure you downloaded emc2 ?
did you use: cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/emc checkout -Pr bdi-4 -d emc emc2 ?
if you did then you DIDN'T download emc2
you downloaded the emc from BDI4 (located in CVS under emc2, but the bdi4 branch)
ok i run "cvs -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/emc checkout -Pr bdi-4 -d emc emc2"
the bdi4-emc is somewhere between emc (which runs with rcslib) and emc2 (runs with libnml)
so you actually have emc1 on your machine
and the stuff downloaded from CVS resembles more to emc1 than it does to emc2
what do i have to do if i'd like to acquire a real emc2?
for now? install a 2.4 kernel
Bowika: if you have issues with installing / compiling kernels (and patching it with rtai) try installing BDI-Live
i have the 2.4.18 kernel and rtlinux 3.2 installed, 'cause i usually develop in its
well run that kernel, and do a cvs checkout:
cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/emc checkout -dP emc emc2
make sure you get HEAD not the bdi-4 branch
after that ./configure && make
should be enough
yes it is
might work :)
the parts from configure were written kinda blindly (for rtlinux)
so I think it's great if you try it
if it doesn't work.. please do complain :D
ok i have to restart my computer.....will you be here in 15 minutes?
think so :)
ok i will try it
bye for a while

I'm preparing to crash :)
getting late for you?
a few more mins till tomorrow
Right - Romania
We're usually GMT-5, but I'm not sure what happens with daylight savings (or standard time or whatever we're actually on in the summer)
It's 17:00 here
hi there, even
had a long long talk with Mariss at gecko
cool.. bout what?
might try the g200x for a commercial control
how's the Vampire coming?
robin is messing with it
with the g200x .. yes
the unkillable stepper driver
new boards go on the pick and place tommorow
although.. people suggested it might die from a wooden stick that gets rammed through the PCB
the G200X OEM?
I was counting on emc
no - only silver bullets (and garlic causes it to malfunction)
yes the oem
but I need a backup
You can make your own :)
(the schematics are published)
A great fear with customer support if I put emc in a commercial product
it works great for me
but I am an engineer
the G200X is emc
customers would not be
the interpreter is emc
the rest is not
highly modified and optimized for a small microcontroller
afaik there's another version aswell
yes - the Machx version
the mach version is a separate thing art is doing
you can put whatever you want on the rabbit
or even make a different controller board (which I may do with an AVR or something)
c compiler dev kit =$150
according to Mariss
yeah - sort of. I picked up their literature at ESC, and the "real" dev kits seem like they're a bit more
les: c compiler dev kit for AVR = 0$
I'd have to look it over again though
includes gcc, gdb, etc
I just told him I needed a controller that could do smooth 1000 ipm motions
not quite - that's only if you can fit into 4k of object code
the assembler for the AVR is free though
with .001" repeatability
oh - you're talking GCC - nevermind
JTAG for avr = 50$
and not use off the shelf components for a mee too product
Either the G200X or Jon Elson's board can do that
for emc to be considered segmentqueue must work
(or a custom FPGA board)
and the linux must be transparent to the user
les: there was a suggestion a while back
linux is good, but I can't sell that learning curve to a signmaker or something
that can only work if it's basically impossible for the user to run any other application (like CAD, word processor, email, etc.)
make emc run on linux
but the display on doze
yes - the "ethernet CNC"
that is a good plan
make the emc-machine a SBC burried deep inside
maybe even with linuxbios :)
boots in a few seconds
les - you should add segmentqueue discussions to the Fest ToDo list
emc's advantage is (with a working segmentqueue) is that it has sophisticated motion planning and servo loops
actually - there are flash IDE hard drives (up to a couple of gig) that would significantly increase boot speed)
SWP: how so?
Well - data transfer and seek are a part of bootup (though I realize that waiting for peripherals to respond is a lot more of the time)
SWP: afaik flash is a lot slower than hdd's
anyway Mariss will send me a 200x if I buy the rabbit
I should have said "flash drives that plug into an IDE connector
true for writes (though marginally), not necessarily true for reads
yeah that too
les: kewl ... buy the Rabbit from mariss presubaly
reads ~ 10-12 MB?
damn - I'll take that deal :)
sure why not
as it will need to be programmed
dev kit $150?
Even compactflash is in the 4-6 MB/sec write range
but a programming lead is $25 and there is an updater for free
you only need the dev to compile
oh and he explained the convolution scheme
SWPadnos: dont forget .. flash burns out in 100K r/w cycles
it is not convolving waypoints
les: makes sense now?
but velocity by interrupt
true, but for a boot drive (non-swap) that shouldn't be an issue
yes, thats sounds right
vibration proof as well :)
so constant filter poles
in the rabbit software?
anyway he had good arguments
he always does :)
I should try it
SWP: how about battery backed up SRAM?
the rabbit has the interp, tp and motion smoothers all in it
now that would rock
yesh - like suspend / resume
although I still take issue with his using an h-bridge switching scheme that dissipates servo energy in the output fets in regenerative braking
les: regardless of mariss convioncing arguments, i have the results running here .. and thats the biggest convincing argument you will ever see :)
well it will do smooth 1000 ipm moves...
and .001" repeat
les: you should have seen the steppers run emcfin.nc after the post-processor ...
and is DIRT cheap
it works for me
actually, you should be able to get higher speed and/or higher resolution with it
(if you need it)
replaced all those lines with arcs?
84% reduction :)
must not have been emc1
no was on the G2002
it is incapable of runnung joined arcs in anything other than exact stop mode
segmotqueus runs them in blended mode though??
I thought you had segmot?
robin how big is your test machine?
segmentqueue blends arcs yes
what are you discussing?
les this is just a test frame at home, 3 steppers in a rack
les; I have a 2.5m x 1.25m plasma at the factory
g200x flavors of emc
or part emc
Come on over - we can attach them to my Bridgeport :)
the emc plaque is fairly nice looking
(though if I had mounts made, MY motors would already be attached)
alex_joni: also, flash discs don't have to spin up - so especially if you use LinuxBIOS, you get a much faster boot
would a post-process version in purely lines be of interest??
What does pause / resume do to that idea?
to which idea?
the lines-only post -I suppose nothing, really
well I have it with different granularity as far as line segments
should work perfectly
emcfine is the tough one
designed specifically to beat up controls
it killed the G2002 to a crawl
segemnts shorter than 1 interrupt period do that
after processing it ran as sweet as a nut
you could hear it making lovely sounds around the curls ...
that speaks well of g200x
Had reservations about Mariss' tp calcs as opposed to a full third order bezier
but if it works
its a bit of a fudge
but it does seem to work
certainly for most "normal" tasks
anyway he said If I didn't like his fudge...change it
thats open source for you
probably best get a dev kit then :)
at least 60% of the code will be totally familiar
if you know EMC
the code is in the files section of the group, as binaries and source
hmmm - at 1000IPM, one interrupt is 1/60 inch (0.01666) - how often do you need to do that fast a direction change (given inertia and cutter size)?
I guess he is using the interpreter, task handler, and such
roughly speaking, yes
without the nml ickiness
swp: It's more of an issue of stopping at a particular point
that's enough to hit a clamp.
I was referring to the "segments shorter than one interrupt" thing
yeah I understand
it's an issue
well let have hypothetical 0.2 g accel...
Just trying to understand why (and in what situations)
heh - that would be a problem
the 1khz int rate is akin to a servo update rate, its always a good idea to have it at least twice the rate of the basic system freq response .. its not hard to conceive a system with a 500hz basic freq response is it?
and .. you can always set it lower of you waish
ok .2g at that speed gives a min corner radius of 0.21"
so yes must slow down for sharp corners
ideally slowing spindle too to mantain chip load
but that would be problematic
spindles are not designed for low inertia
and yeas robin must not violate nyquist
me too - dinner and the wife just arrived :)

Hello all... ; )
You do not exist. Go away!

But, it's like riding a bike or smashing your thumb with a hammer...you never forget how ;)
Now that that is done...food!
i can see my ms network... woo hoo....
* paul_c does an nmap on dmess
whats that do?
checks for open ports
better do a dmess on nmap too
can't be too careful.
Ran infamous emcfine.tap on the g200x/partly emc
robin ran it
I also had "fairly smooth" runs for the most part.
mess with the queue size?
Had a long long telphone talk with Mariss fremantis today
he is not using segmentqueue
but has changed the TP
emcfine.tap should really beat up kernel/user comms from what you say
I plan on doing some tests over the weekend - But I need to get this CD finished first
it beats up Mariss' 22 MHz z-80 too
I must get off...bad thunderstorm near
paul_c: are you doing a newer BDI-4?
is the live CD related to BDI 4.2??
it uses someof the packages, yes.
