so ... did I miss much?
im still thinking about what to control my sheet feeder with
commercail PLC or ??
* bill20r3 got his drivers
bill2or3: which drivers did you buy?
some used Centent 142's off ebay

just got online, I'm gonna try to investigate your problem with hal version mismatches
glad to hear you got it working on another machine
yes - it was painless
I think it is still running if you want to get into it
(it is at my work)
it works on another machine?
it works on *every other* machine
well, so much for duplicating it here
he's using my binary packages, so everything is identical but the hardware
I also have it installed on on a 700mhz that worked
The one that broke is still installed and running
I thought that you guys wanted to look it over and see if it is and odd hardware issue or something else
its gonna be really tough to get anywhere if I can't replicate it
jmkasunich: skunkworks says you have ssh access to his broken machine
cradek - what is an easy way to edit the emc2 ini files on ubuntu? I found them but they must not have rights to edit.
yes - we can try
skunkworks: the files in /etc/emc2/sample-configs are just that - samples
to make a custom configuration, you need to copy a sample to your home directory and edit it there.
considering I've never used ssh outside my own house, I'll need help, but I'm willing to try
after you do that, the config picker will find your new configurations when you start emc2.
skunkworks: I didn't have your login/password - it was alex, can you send it to me in a private message?
well not yours - whatever account you set up for us to use
do you have the ip?
should we take this to emc-devel?
cradek - can you privat message me?
don't you see it?
ok got it
there is now a TTT (true type tracer) debian package in the ubuntu repository
crap, there's already an app with that name
perhaps you can come up with another "t"? "the true type tracer"?
no hits for apt-cache search tttt.
I'm going to call it truetype-tracer
pretty descriptive, isn't it
it needs a themeable gui
it would be 'qttttt' for qt themeable true-type tracer
or maybe you want a nice simple tcl front-end, ttttttk
don't ask me to explain all the 't's
there is now a truetype-tracer debian package in the ubuntu repository
and what is a true-type-tracer?
jmkasunich: truetype to g-code converter
fwiw, also does truetype-to-dxf
is your ttt package changed from your web site?
yes, much, it has the changes you kindly sent me
I haven't updated the web site yet, but will
great... I'll give it a try
cradek - where are the ini files that the pick program uses located then?
~/emc2/configs then /usr/local/etc/emc2/configs then /etc/emc2/sample-configs
in that order
so the easiest will be to copy one to emc2/configs/ in your home directory
I will play with that tomorrow
I did the axis sim and it came right up. jogged around a bit and that was it.
cradek: cool.... took 1 sec to download deb for ttt
yeah, it is NOT big
oops I need to update README to reflect the new name
seems to be running just fine here....

cradek: - are you awake?
Hi alex - how was the plane ride?
skunkworks: hopefully this weekend me & jmk will look over that problem of yours
I presume it's still there ;)
go look at the history from the emc-devel - cadek and jmk spent a bunch of time on it last night
I went to bed but came in this morning and the machine was running memtest86 ;)
oh, they did?
they think it is a memory error but it looks like it has been running for 8 hours with no errors :(
unless I am reading it wrong
wow that was intense
Cradeks reboot worked - impressive
the mem test is still running - any one know how many steps it takes? it is on #8
is it on test 8 or pass 8 (through all the tests?)
it is running test 8 I think - morning
it would be nice if it would get through all the tests at least once before you stop
but even if it doesn't find anything, we'd like you to try different ram
we're 100% sure there is something wrong with the hardware
but that doesn't necessarily mean ram
riiiiight - always blame the hardware or the user ;)
actually we never do that without good reason, we spent a lot of time looking for the software bug!
I saw that - read the history. pretty intense
the gcc crashes and kernel oopses mak me really sure it's hardware.
I have to go - I'll be back in an hour or so
pass 90% test 52%
it will end?
ah, so it's almost done with a pass, good
no it will go forever
there are many tests, you want to hit all of them if possible before you stop
(it takes a long time with so much ram)
I can let it run - no problem
let me know when you want it to stop
after a pass or two, there's not much point in letting it run longer
we'd like to have memtest results as confirmation that there's a problem with the system, but even if it doesn't agree, we still think so!
it must have a 1gb chip and a 512mb chip
you could also try taking out one at a time
ok gotta go
hey - could it be something like the shared video memory in this thing?
SWP_Away is now known as SWPadnos
try to search :

and after ..
[17:33:47] <giacus> http://images.google.it/images?q=dalai+lama&hl=it&btnG=Cerca+immagini
look at the diff ..
holy crap - you guys did some nice work. Playing on the 1.8ghz machine and a period of .00002 is very usable. (.00001 isn't ;)
that would give me the option of 600ipm on z ;)
oops - I actually mean 150ipm
still - that is probably faster than it will actually go
600 is lots.
multiplied when I ment to divide ;)
are you there?
hey fellow durhamian.
whats up ALPHA
digesting a roti I ate an hour ago.
i ditched work early.. havin a pint
and some veggies
i should put a couple of beers into my fridge.
man you should see the changes in my plce of work...
we now have a Quick Rsponse Team (QRT) .. red shirt trouble shooting brigade.... i was subconded..sp??
donated... offered up as sacraficial lamb.... however you say it...
you were subcontracted?
you were tossed to someone that was willing to pay your co. to pick you up?
no im on contract any way.... but i dont get to do what i used to do... and i must wear a RED shirt... we provide 3 shift support to the machine shop and production dept
seems that way
But, if you start talking about how suck the new code is, they'll come out of the woodwork!
Jymmm: any new job ?
actually I was playing with emc2 earlier - it just gets better and better.
Jymmm is teh suxx0rz
is you cnc machining ?
just on a test machine - playing with how fast I can make it go.
skunkworks: how much ?
mathmatically it looks like I could run x and y at 550ipm and z 150ipm
I don't think the mechanics will do that though
but the headroom is nice
what diameter are your screws?
x and y are about 1.25
skunkworks whats the travel?
ok. those shuldn't be longer than about 60 inches then
5 feet ;)
period of .00002
apparently spindles are complicated.
hey, watch out for this scam thats going around the supermarkets at the moment .. two girls offer to pack your bags and carry them in exchange for a lift to another nearby shop, once in your car one of them gives you a blow-job, afterwards you are so distracted, you fail to notice they steal your shopping whne they get out. A nasty trick indeed.
I fell for it last Tuesday
and twice on saturday
