knock,knock, anybody home
hello all I need some help here with BDI 2.2
I can't seem to get it to load off the Cd
It starts to lad but it keeps on go back to rebooting
have you checked the md5sum of your downloaded image?
I am trying to do that now but I have never used that program befor so I don't know where to start with it
can you help
ok I will have to do it in Windows first
I have downloaded it and Have it on a flopy
so can some one help here or am I in the wrong place
do you have the binary on your hard disk?
i mean the .iso file
oh wait you don't have a linux system running right?
yes I do
I redownloaded it today
where does it die in the boot up process?
that is right I will have to check it in a windows
yes it does
it gets only up to the 2nd file and hen reboots
Shit I should have wrote it down I will be right back
have to go out to the shop
give 5 minutes
mmm this "cnc toolkit" looks pretty sexy
[01:55:50] <fenn> http://www.rainnea.com/cnc_toolkit.htm
i wonder if it's gpl...
here is what it did
load Lnited.img load Vmliux Uncompressing
then I got this
invalid compressed format (err=1)
okay so what it's doing is loading the compressed kernel image into memory and trying to uncompress it
and it blows up
i don't really know what options BDI gives you for installing cause i've never installed it myself
would I have to re format the drive
is this an old computer?
of maybe fdisc
96megs of ram
I was told that 2.2 would run the best on the older ones
sometimes there were programs that get loaded before the bios somehow in order to increase the maximum hard drive space
oh that's not it. the boot loader wouldn't have loaded
might as well bring the computer inside to fiddle with it
you can usually get some kind of menu at the boot loader to poke around with
the real bad part about this is I had it loaded earlyer today but it would not let me login at all so I reformated the harddrive and tryed to erload and the rest is history as they say
do you have any other spare computers lying around?
I think i have to look up and read this stuff before I hit the send button
yes I have a pI 300
you could try installing it on that computer to see if it works
but it is loaded with Windos right now
well, put a hard drive in it!
but I can get rid off it
you should get a md5sum utility for windows first
I have it
But it does not work in XP
I guess it is that way because XP does not use Dos
once I get it running how do I tell it to check out the BDI
uh, does it open in a console window?
yes it does
try doing run: cmd
that gets you a command prompt
now cd to wherever you downloaded the program to (might be easier to move it all into c:)
and try typing the program name and then the file name of the bdi
in xp ok hang on let me open it up as we talk
boy these windows programs have pretty bad documentation
compared to EMC even :)
ok i opened it up and have a kurser flashing
I will get the disc
it's not still on your hard drive?
yes it is but one one of the others on the net work
* fenn blinks.
ok so how do I tell it to check it out
if it's on the network it will probably be easier to download it to the computer you're on
or switch to that computer
ok well i will have to go up staires
hang on ok
don't go quite yet
i will log off here and relog in from there
ok be right back
* fenn rolls his eyes.
* fenn taps his slowly numbing feet.
so download md5sum on that computer if you haven't already
then put them both in c:\ (md5sum and the BDI iso)
then run cmd
cd c:\ and then md5sum *.iso
so just type in cmd
you are fast
in the window that opened.. it's just a command line window
i've had a computer since about age 2
is it doing stuff? making horrendous clicking noises in your hard drive? mwahahaha
still waiting for it to do something
it hasn't done anything..?
I will try and recopy it to the c:\ drive
actually try typing md5sum /?
that should give you a short help screen
wont work on M$ --> /?
remember it's ported
actually i dont know what program you are using
could you paste the help screen here so i can see it?
oh that's jymmm
it's md5sum -s downlaoded.md5
that'll verify the iso to the md5 file
yeah but he probably doesn't have an md5 file
like it takes a long time to download
actually i cant find a bdi 2.2 anywhere
I got it off of cnc kits page
ok did as you just said and still got nada
where is cnc kits (what's the address?)
ok here i will send it to you
[02:52:45] <JJb> http://www.linuxcnc.org/bdi/
I dot the Md5 from the same page 9Link )
with the puffy white clouds in the background right
i think i need to go to bed before i die of chronic depression
hmm that's funny i ran md5sum on my .iso and it's wrong
did you find the web page
so, you typed md5sum BDI-2.20b.iso
and it didn't do anything?
boy have been working on getting all my stuff now for 4 years now that I got it all I want to set it up and I can't get the BDI to load up
no I will try that
well, everything takes five times longer than you expect it to
ok here is what I am doing
flashing kerser no c Promp
cd c:\md5sum BDI 2.20b.iso
you have to do one command at a time
now I have no flashing promp
cd c:\ then hit enter
ok did that
now md5sum BDI-2.20b.is
don't forget the hyphen
i mean md5sum BDI-2.20b.iso
it should take about fifteen seconds and spit out a bunch of numbers and lettersss
it should say 7f57cea9fe320334aa0739dfc05a447f
could it be because I am using XP
if it gives you 32 letters and they're different, then it means that the download got messed up and you have to download it again
I dont get a thing here Nada
promp just flashing
i don't know what to tell you
ok I will tey and download the md5 from some where else
try this http://digestit.kennethballard.com/download.html
JJb: alink for windows dl, and a howto: http://contribs.org/modules/phpwiki/index.php/How
jerry etree.org is broken
oh heh there are about ten other links on that page also n/m
Ok I just downloaded one called md5ssummer
it is for Windows
I will right back
ah i just love these stupid homemade turbine engine videos
it can take 10 minutes for it to verify the iso, just wait till it's done.
ok back I finally got it to work and it is the same number you gave me Fenn
may be the old computer can not load it up
ok thank you fenn for all your help
got to go have a good one all
okay so it takes 45 seconds to do an md5 sum of bdi-4.20 on my computerr
i hope this doesn't say what it think it says
carte_pos_fb aka actual position is always calculated from motor position? what about linear encoders and interferometers

I hear Paul may show up there before long.
yeah I expect himany time
He may be surprised how cold it is
may freezes at higher elevations
We will beat up segmentqueue a bit
Better you than me.
Raining off and on here.
well nice tody
pollen bothers me
and the cars
clogged radiators, air filters, etc
It was nasty with pollen at NIST.
do you think anything got done?
We don't seem to get as much coding done as we'd like
but the decisions to work the various branches into a single emc2 main
will get us all on the same track.
Paul got pico drivers working with 2.6
Jon got a Live version of his software running here.
We plan to use his univpwm to run matt's hardinge.
well for me this week will determine whether emc will be used in a proposed commercial tool.
Have a router manufacturer visiting.
The move to emc2 is intended to duplicate current emc functionality with HAL
all depends on SQ
So this is a high speed machine?
yes in the 500-1000 ips range
SWP got a fix to the task and interp that speeds up restart.
SQ is actually working...it does not crash...but...
It will also attempt to keep the motion buffer filled.
it sometimes jerks momentarily when the queue empties....
it plans inapropriately slow moves sometimes.
the latter is mathand I will look at it closely
I read some discussion about that problem.
Seems there was a sleep in there someplace
It would normally read only one block of g and then sleep until the next motion loop
but I'm not the best one to talk about it.
the first thing may not be a problem at all....some of my test programs may be motion plans where the points would pass by faster than the servo rate
we will check that
SWP and Fred decided to make that not sleep unless the buffer was full or an IO task had to be done.
wonder what the purpose of it was in the first place?
The idea was done for restart but it my help your issues as well.
RAY CAN YOU SEND ME AN EMAIL WHERE I CAN REACH YOU
I don't think the original code was intended for contouring
with very short moves.
well it is pretty old
You bet todd.
I guess the earlier stuff was what...early 90's?
In that age.
The tests were with a K&T hoorizontal and I don't think they had moldmaking in mind.
of course there was that peculiar cubic sub interpolation thing
that seems to not do much
Much less routing wood and soft materials.
Works fine on the likes of a Sherline
HOW IS THE RETROFIT GOING
yes no problems at .05 in/sec^2
When Paul gets here we should find SWP's update and get it running on your router.
big problems at 150 in/sec^2
oh is he coming over to matt;s?
The Harding is looking good. Got most of the old cables connected to screw terminals.
We should have some motion by night.
Then have to dig into all of the air motors and actuators for the tool changer.
No threading yet.
I'm hoping to bend Fred's fingers around the threading problem tomorrow.
I think threading=xxyz also
pretty much the same thing
We need to be able to initiate the thread/gearing with NML stuff
We have avoided the issue with the commercial router proposal by using a moving table
it is usually a less costly construction
Gantry or both xy table move
fixed gantry moving table x
that works ok if the machine is not too big
That is the same config Tony set up.
Takes a bit more space but is rock solid.
it is good up to about 4x4' or so
after that the footprint gets a little big
and the table starts getting massive
table stiffness does not scale with size
I worked on a gantry grinder with 12' of travel.
A little droop off the ends shouldn't affect accuracy at the cutting point though.
I know that sounds heritical.
well only the motion needs to be stright
mine chabges with the weather a bit
concrete slab and humidity...
constant rh inside though
but not the ground underneath
They did not put a moisture barrier in under the pour
I was a bit unhappy about that
but I was away while the slab was poured
Most concrete folk don't like a moisture barrier under the slab. Takes to long to finish.
hope it is stable a little while near the vert mill...
I am about to scrape it in
things have to stay very level
I have to say I am doing this for fun...
because scraping is generally not economically viable
good morning all
I have to check my straightedges on the lab grade plate
and see if they have moved
I have not used them in several years
high spot 'em first
last machine I did was the grinder
well I will do a straight down scrape on the mill
I have to mill up some dovetail templates first
only the saddle and table need done
ive used balls a guage blocks on dovetails before
yes I will be using precision ball
pretty standrd way to do it
there a robin out front trying to carry away 15 feet of spectra attatched to a tree..
that probably won't work
hes hit the end of the string 3 times so far.. what a hoot..
is Paul there yet?
ray told me about your modifying the interpreter sleep?
yep - it was Fred's idea
i should just go cut it off for him... he's earned it
SWPadnos, Hey you're home.
the rescan times are around 15x faster on my P3 1GHz
nope - I'm in a hotel in Boston
the speedup would be less for slower machines, and more for faster ones
it may have an effect on segmenqueue running out
shouldn't - but the motion planner cycle time is set from within the .ini file
you could reduce that and see what happens
we get little pauses and motionid=0 messagase
change the CYCLE_TIME in the [TASK] section ( I think)
it's usually 0.01 seconds - make it 0.005 or 0.002 and see what happens
you will turn task into a CPU hog though
We have messed with that a good bit but will do so some more with the newer code
cycles need to never cross at 0
the new code won't affect anything when the machine is running - it's only when rescanning the file to restart
I have run it as low as .001
the same as your servo update cycle? (or did you have the update faster?)
no twice the servo time
it has to be at least twice
OK - so servos were at 2KHz
what speed machine?
old 200 K6
that'll never wotk :)
it's at .0005 now!
remember - the servo update is a periodic process, the task cycle is apause between executions
so the overall task cycle time is the execution time plus the cycle time
I do not remember what the task time is set at...
let me go out and check
if SQ takes a lot of processing time, then the effective task cycle will be long (0.001 plus the execution tie)
(there - take THAT you stupid keyboard :) )
typoing test again?
Morning Ray, SWP
Ray, how goes the HNC adventure?
I am at .005/.0005 right now SWP
OK - I wonder how much work the K6 can do in that time (ie, can it calculate enough motion segments for he 10+ servo updates in 5 ms)
to test that we will run at long times and look for differences
We did that a good bit before
but the code has changed a lot
it could be 50 servo cycles that it's planning for - if the task process takes 32 ms to run, the period will be 32 (working)+5 (pausing)
though we may be talking about two different things here
Fred ran the machine time at 2:1 task: servo a good bit here
but the math was so messed up in SQ at the time...it did not help
a lot of the math was fixed
gotta run for a few
SWPadnos is now known as SWP_Away
stevestallings, Making some progress on the lathe. Wiring fixup between old and new.
design of panel buttons and such.
Were you lucky enough to have a wiring diagram of the old, or just trace it out?
John's software and parport link came up beautifully.
Much of the wiring came from my memory.
Matt's just got the troubleshooting books.
Oh dear 8-)
My memory is old but it still works for most of this machine.
Were most of the HNC's equipped with the GE controls?
I believe so.
I had two that had bandit
I have some docs on AB controls for the HNC.
550 or 1050?? 200
they were retro'd chuckers though
The 1050 version was designated CHNC IMO
Got three of those in the garage.
Full DC spindle was the biggest difference.
One might think that in the UP a garage might actually have cars in it.
I gave mine away...too heavy to move
we had na excello mill ge1050 and one 550
the spindle bore was small
The SO thinks it ought to have space for cars.
space for cars? What's that?
I suggested adding on but her thought was that would just make room for more junk.
She knows you well... 8-)
Yes she does.
I have the dedicated shop but the garage has a tractor in it.
I was a bit concerned during fest when Fred said he had no clue how to
Ray, full DC spindle was featured on GE or AB?
I don't think I ever owned a car that got to sleep inside.
allign single point threading on subsequent passes.
Subsequent passes are just the same as first with an offset.
anonimasu_ is now known as anonimasu
We (Fred, Josh, and I) did some talking about approach traj planning during lunch one day.
finally back from the lan party we arranged
What were the conclusions, stevestallings?
Workable as a planned move to within a tolerance band, then jump to geared mode with hopefully minimal servo jerk.
Would think that is easier with servos than steppers.
slowing down the spindle for a sec would help with the jerk
I think they faced the same sort of problems with servo jerk when entering world mode in a hexapod.
In EMC steppers are just funky servos 8-)
The trick would be not to overrun the stepper motor during the jerk
I'm wondering if I should real quick order a fast MB for paul to mess with
this look ok?
Les, my take is that the math and smoothness would be best with constant spindle speed.
long time no see
[14:07:58] <les> http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=515536&CatId=1145
so where are you now?
long time no she!
maybe that too
steve, if you had a controlled ramp up period yes
otherwise you have a singularity
We were assuming that spindle was running constant speed. Then compute the X and Z approach based on distance to go and accel limits. Target within xx% of entry point. Finish approach by jumping to geared mode (singularity?). Begin cut in geared mode.
les, What'd you have in mind for the ISA motherboard?
well just so a certain finite time is allowed for lock in
ray, we can test computer speed issues by just doing slow programs, but I could just as well pop in a fast isa board
perhaps less time wasted testing?
The board we used for the HNC here is a single ISA with a 370 processor.
soyo socket 370 and 478 ring any warning bells?
here's a cheap 370:
[14:15:30] <les> http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=281275&CatId=1122
The 370 works great with Via 800 procs.
perhaps I ought to just grab one of those right away
no info on soyo though?
You'd have to ask Matt where he got this board. Computer geeks has one similar.
Do you know exactly which mb you are using there right now?
Matt, where did you get your board?
Matt's away with his kids.
looks like biostar
oh...those soyo boards I showed are via chipsets
We had no problems with a LIVE install.
parport link to pico was perfect as was the bsof ISA io board.
M6VLR has no isa slot
in tkemc when i press the home button (z-axis) it homes to -2.5 instead of 0 any ideas? (newb)
[14:23:38] <les> http://www.biostar.com.tw/products/mainboard/board.php?name=M6VLR
SWP_Away is now known as SWPadnos
Tiger direct looks a bit expensive
unless it is "amr"...i don't know what that is
[14:24:44] <rayh> http://www.baber.com/baber/411/biostar_m6vlr.htm
amr is a modem socket, I think
The board does have an amr slot.
I've used the softmodem with it
Guess I could get the m6vlr with the isa as opposed to the m6vlr without one heh
x and y zero out but no luck with z : (
les: how many ISA slots do you need?
if this m6vlr is known to work with emc/stg then that's the safe bet
price seems high
later when Matt gets in I need to know the processor
[14:35:29] <SWPadnos> http://www.gearxs.com/gearxs/product_info.php?products_id=3583
oooh that'e a nice price
socket a hmmm
with 1.33 athlon?
the athlons are pretty cheap these days
looking for that in a barebones
punk84 is now known as punk84_afk
I will check with matt later...I think I ought to grab one of those
hate to pull the stg much though...I think those gold edge connectors last about 10 insertions
les ... you noticed that vsi is going to have a 4 channel board soon?
I think the price of the motenc kinda got upped huh?
oh... I haven't checked!
Still not sure if it is 100% bug free
that is what we are going to find out at integration...
paul and I might go to that guy in atlanta near here running one
I have to buy a mill from him anyway
yeah...we might do that...he is only 100 miles from here
he has several
$1000 or less for series II
100 miles. I drive that far for a good oriental dinner!
I'd go for the II at that rate...lots more mill
I like stiffness
He said he would deliver too
would like some emc help
well ray...we're having cashew chicken this evening
always good to get the price down
he gets em for pract nothing
kilobuck and he hauls a series II up here?
works for me.
Gotta get to work here. Catch you all later.
is matt coming in later?
I think so.
ok I will check later
before ordering anything
I have hired a part time machinist and we seem to be making several identical parts at a time
so I figured a second mill would be in order
the router can do some metal...but it is set up for production
les...vsi's main board went up but the enc/dac board went down.
one can use opto-22 G4PB24's for the rest of the I/O
let me check the enc/dac one...
IDC5 modules for in and OAC5's for 120 v output to drive solenoids
oh the breakout board
for the enc/dac
I finally located more roller limit switches ... so soon I will have enough to do the cincinatti limits correctly...
IF we fix SQ I need to get with Abdul about some serious talking concerning 4 axis board quan pricing
If we don't fix SQ.....we're dead in the water.
then I can test the motenc with it
les....well that gives you lots of incentive
did you dig your way thru sonja.ps?
I just don't want to market a me too machine with expensive commercial controllers on it
so sq needs to work
yeah I have read her paper
any good ideas there?
only two things we know of with sq:
motionid=0 messages and
sometimes to slow vel planning for some segments
Well her paper is mostly about time optimal rt planning
I take issue with doing it all hard rt
maybe she thought she had to....
or it is more impressive
time optimal quintic could be taxing
course they propose some efficient algos there
good algorithms beat processor power any time
and quintic is good
i'll settle for cubic
but would like better
I can't settle for a hurky jerky trapezoidal though.
can you do sigmoid | sin
scaled lookup tables are fast
but I think sin functions have problems with end conditions
I don't know enought to disagree
gotta run - checkout time
see you all later
Well one nice thing about a sin is that acel is also a sin
les...well anyway you have your work cut out for you
It should not take long to at least come to a decision
and jerk become the driv of -sin
fixable or hopeless
yes jerk is -cos
oh duh...been too long
almost 50 years and I wasn't good at it then
But it appears that odd order polynomials are always chosen
I taught it.
forgot a lot though.
so that is why no one is talking about quartic
right....non symetrical end conditions
learn something every day if I'm not careful
I'll be interested in how the M6V board works out
I'm going to bail...catch you later
punk84_afk is now known as punk84
what's new anders?
not much been arranging a lan the whole weekend
I'm in the mountains again.. poor network connection;)
gotta keep a hand on my cell .. acting as an antenna ;)
but it's 450MHz so it should beok
my typing sux however :(
how was fest?
nice to hear that
didn't get as much actual work accomplished as I hoped
network connection got turned off at 5pm each day, and we had do leave at 7pm
I do my best work in the late night and early morning hours it seems
will you (or smbdy else) populate the tasks at SF?
yeah.. on the tracker
oh... yeah, should do that
right now I'm just trying to recover - get computers reinstalled here and net connected, etc
I think that would be usefull to keep some tracking
ray was taking notes on the wiki
* alex_joni wouldn't mind getting some assigned
how much do you know about building kernel modules in a kernel 2.6 environment?
not much.. yet
getting the emc2 build system to work for 2.6 is a big step
but that's about the same I know about autoconf when I started with that
Paul probably knows more than any of us because of his work on the bdi-4 branch, but he's gonna be traveling for another couple of weeks
yeah.. but I think he could answer some questions once in a while
I REALLY need to install a 2.6
Paul and I managed to get BDI-4.20 installled on a compile farm slot
think I'll go with 4.20
I'm hoping to get the compile farm out of the truck and back online today
I'll be home tomorrow night.. so till then all I can do is document myself :(
I wonder if we should start a branch to get the build system working, so it doesn't disrupt any work being done on head?
or use one of the existing
I know that's not optimal (naming wise)
could use your old autoconf branch, it's already set up on the farm
but the ones who do the work could keep in mind
(in fact if we don't use that one, I should remove it from the farm so it doesn't waste time and bandwidth)
sounds ok to me
I'm also gonna re-arrange things, so that EMC2 head is at the top of the farm listing... to reflect the fact that we're focusing our effort on emc2
my only concern about reusing that branch is how do we make sure it matches the head?
I'll bring it up to sync
sounds like a plan
jmk: any other things to report besides http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?ProgrammerDecisions_Fest_2005
* jmkasunich reads
what does : Task - Modify auto configuration for EMC 2 build : mean?
not sure... I suspect configure.in will require a few tiny changes to support kbuild on 2.6
right.. well that's ok :)
one question, I just read that you used emc2 on a minimill
did you use ioControl ?
to turn the spindle on/off?
nope, just plain EMC2 (that's been working since last year)
the sherline doesn't use any real I/O
afaik last year you only had simiocontrol
the machine they had there had limit switches, but we didn't use them
spindle control is manual, etc
the test was really just to prove to Ray that EMC2 actually worked
ok.. was wondering if the simple iocontrol I did, works
(he has never seen it run)
what drives does sherline come with?
I think they use a xylotex variant
I was considering buying a sherline mill, but I'd love to get my hands on one first.
they have WAY too many accessories... I gets confused =)
* alex_joni will be in later
is there any way to execute emc2 on simple text console without X? I'd like to use the loading of g code files and all functions that the tkemc enviroment has.
is there any way to execute emc2 on simple text console without X? I'd like to use the loading of g code files and all functions that the tkemc enviroment has.
in emc1 there was a text-mode frontend called keystick
I don't know if anyone has ported it over yet. probably not.
fifty_ohm-afk is now known as fifty_ohm
how was the fest?
jon would be Mr. Elson
john is me
how was fest? fun, tiring, somewhat frustrating
I saw some news, mainly it said "business as usual" from what I could make out
a true working event needs to be held at a site where the network doesn't go down at 5pm and you don't get kicked out at 7pm
not "business as usual"
oh, well, I only saw one thing, that was on the wiki
there was nothing earth-sahttering from what I oculd see
robin is trolling again
I wasn't expecting
the only news ive seen was on the wiki, there was nothing earth shattering, thats not a troll
I wasn't expecting "earth shattering" nor was anyone else (I hope)
was the news on the wiki about accurate?
or was there more ?
much of it was people hashing out their views of what emc needs to become, etc
hard to summarize for a wiki page
* robin_sz nods
I saw that "motion control" was going to be hal-ified
there was some discussion here as to exactly what "motion control" encompassed
one thing is painfully clear, every single person who does anything with emc has their own ideas how stuff should work
most of which are incompatible with each other
so ... is "the board" going to provide some leadership here?
some are just silly, and for the most part the people with those ideas can be educated
infact what became of the board?
but in other cases, there may be two completely different ways to do things, and neither is clearly the best
little/no board activity there (as in "the _board_ says this or that"), most decisions were by concensus of everyone in the room, board or not
was there any decision to try and rid the codebase of some of the 700 line switch/case madness yet?
you mean the switches that handle NML messages?
NML is going to be with EMC for a while at least
I dont have a problem with NML
just the implementation
anyway, seems ther si no will to change it, so I'll drop it.
what other topics came up? segmot?
"will" needs to be accompanied with time and effort
changing NML offers less benefit per unit work than some other areas
in the long run tho I believe there is a strong desire to simplify / genericize the NML vocabulary
but few would be prepared to commit time and effrot when others (with lots of spare time and effrot) are pulling in the other direction ...
ahhm thats good then
anyway, moving on from NML ...
ie. SET_PARAM(param, value) rather than SET_FOO(value), SET_BAR(value), etc
thats a good step
so .. what of segmot?
IMO the first and most inportant thing is to work toward a common codebase
* robin_sz nods
and stop pouring effort into emc1
getting emc2(head) to compile on 2.6 kernels is absolutely neccesary
module build is so much easier on a 2.6 kernel
oops, gotta go - dinner's on
jmkasunich: robin_sz: would it help to have someone (machineless at the moment) doing test builds?
Both of you?
oh dont ask me
I forget why I hang around here
I gave up on emc soem while ago now, I just hang around for the general maching/coding stuff :)
* Phydbleep was wondering about the 4.20 tag for the latest BDI.. :)
4.20 + 'short term memory loss' makes perfect sense now. :)
jmkasunich has a "build farm" for the various variants anyway
there is some sort of automated checkout and build process
Damn it robin_sz .. you waited till I got 99% of the question re-typed to answer that. :)
I committed the first few versions of g200x to the sourceforge CVS over the weekend
* Phydbleep has all sorts of obsolete crap hardware to test software on.
minus the FPGA config
havent quite decided what to do with that
I even put up a wiki as the home page
* Phydbleep hears silence and wonders what kind of trouble the child is about to get into...
thats the worst sign of trouble
3-1/2 year old daughter.. Silence means the cat is about to get a new hairdo or she's trying to cook something. :)
quite possibly the cat!
I have 3 boys, 2,3 and 5
Oh you poor so-and-so... You made the ultimate mistake and let them outnumber you...
And you're old enough that you should know what causes that by now. :)
life can be "interesting"
how can I describe it ... hmm ... have you seen "Diehard"?
Too late for you to even yell "Rape!" and be believed. :)
Is there an 'anaconda-ks.cfg' or an equivalent for building a box for emc2?
Or should I just futz with it till it works?
something along those linse
how about a nice cup of tea?
Well, I had to wipe the last build attempt after it kept insisting it was a toaster and that I wasn't eating enough toast..
I guess that's what I get for threatening to turn it into a toaster-oven all those times..
