any svn guru's here?
don't think so - we all use cvs
I just tried the debounce in the joypad_hal file. I used the wiki example and added the debounce to the signal as jepler suggested. This helps but still it is not as functional as I would like. When I push the coolant button on the joypad and hold it the state inverts rapidly still. A momentary push is more reliable but still seems to be very much affected by the time of the push. A quick push may sometimes not change state while a slightly t
I should have been a little more specific in one sentence. The duration of the push is the correct meaning not the time of the push.
is there a flip/flop in there somewhere?
I have no flip/flop in this example. This is the wiki example for the joypad. I added only the debounce.
see the T flip flop
will do. thanks
if you want a real toggle I think you can build it up
(I haven't thought it all through though)
If I can I will. If I can't I will be back. Thanks
or, you could sure make a component to do it
I certainly will look at that although I am not a C/python or anything source code programmer. I am an APT NC programmer/machinist. I will try it and see what questions I have. Thanks
hmm... if we added an "out-not" pin to the flip flop, then you could route that back to the input and it becomes a toggle FF
I have this feeling ubuntu will spoil me
I'm used to crying like a little girl after tracking down and installing all the random libs
So, what makes you think that you STILL won't be crying like a little girl for other reasons?
if you miss that, try building a rtai+smp ubuntu kernel for us
hunt/download more crap
is that really that hard?
just saying that clicking around in synaptic is nice
I hate downloading a ton of packages
there still are programs like that
there is a r/c flight simulator where you have to download and install a ton of stuff, and most of it is obsolete
what kernel do you want?
2.6.15 from dapper, with smp and rtai
mysql workbench being one of them
dapper is the current ubuntu on the live cd?
I built with smp a few times, but never did get it to boot
I'll have to think about what machine to test it on
my main problem is the only SMP machine I have is a PII
shouldn't be that big of a problem
to be useful to us, the kernel should also run fine with one processor
can you do that?
I'm pretty sure you can (not considering rtai)
when you built, did you start with the config in /boot?
yes, with some tweaks, be sure you get them
the -magma kernel puts a config in /boot too, you ought to start with that
the plain kernel config is not in my /boot
just the magma version
maybe it comes with linux-headers or something
in the old days, smp or even single proc with the advanced irq controller would hang a single processor machine w/o the irq controller
is there a list of emc related packages available for apt-get?
my desktop machine has one processor and is running 2.6.15-28-686 #1 SMP PREEMPT
I've seen reference to running smp on uniprocessor, but haven't really paid attention
my main kernel building nowadays is for stripped down computers
haven't done the realtime thing for a while
config is rtai 3.3 and is kernel 184.108.40.206 ok?
I forgot what a pain it was to make RTAI
next assignment: 64-bit SMP RTAI kernel :)
screw 64, 256 baby
is that 64 bits on SPARC, MIPS, or PPC?
their patch designations don't make any sense
what kernel does hal-linux-2.6.15-i386-1.3-00.patch go with?
oh well, building linux 220.127.116.11 without RTAI just to see if it will boot

alex_joni you playing with your new switch huh?
Jymmmmm: err. no
that one was busted
was it really?! are they going to exchange it?
nope.. it wasn't a new one
so I simply didn't buy it
Jymmmmm: it had non-free molecules (ROFL)
something like this: http://web.nether.net/lists/cisco-nsp/11849.html
alex_joni: cool error message
* robin_sz awakes to yet another perfect day in Geneve
same here :)
There is fire and brimstone flowing from the cracks in the streets here, Eh just another typical day in California.
21C tomorrow, today only 19C
24C today, same as yesterday :)
they are serving free beer out on the terrace, as usual
sux you'll go home eventually
the weather here is bad though ... very bad ...
I think .. wait .. let me check ... I think there is a cloud in the sky
hmmm .. difficult to tell, its too far away to see properly
how do I look at yesterday's chat?

it works great :)

skunkworks_: you can suggest using an and2 block between axis.0.amp-enable and spindle on
although I must say I'm a bit surprised it doesn't turn off the spindle
Thank you - I am not hal literate yet.
is that easy to test there? I don't have an emc2 box here
addf and2.0 servo-thread
- I ment the spindle shutting off after a limit hit ;)
net machineon axis.0.amp-enable and2.0.in0
net spindleon motion.spindle-on and2.0.in1
net spindleok and2.0.out parport.0.pin-10-out
skunkworks_: that should be about it
but thanks ;) that helps
if you want to test.. setp axis.0.neg-lim-sw-in 1
I don't think it's wasy to set the spindle off
and not sure it's needed
sure a hard limit switch should probably estop the machine and enable bakes..
though that's a runaway condition..
I dont know how you manage to hit them on a machine with a correct setup
anonimasu: it does.. (stop motion and enable brakes).. but spindle keeps running I think
anyways.. you can get that if not homed properly
alex_joni: Well that in itself is retarded..
anonimasu: retarted is too harsh
it might only be misinformation\
alex_joni: I dont see why you would ever do that..
maybe they don't know you can set up a limit switch asa a home switch
and properly set up software limits
anyways.. gotta pack (leaving again)
well, I dont think you should be able to do coordinated motion/full auto without homing first..
alex_joni: I dont have limits/home switches yet, but I know that's the first thing I'll mount if I start on another machine
I'm happy without on my femtomill
how do you keep track of where you were if you kill power overnight?
or if you have a fixture?
where your fixture zero is at?
I have POSITION_FILE=foo.txt in my ini
shutdown, start again next day.. same pos
I only lose microsteps..
or if you ever stall your machine..(if it's a stepper one)
as the steppers power down
at 8krpm this part is down to 2 minutes..
and with 2krpm it takes 208 minutes
yay gotta love 3d contouring on slow spindle speeds.
just a test..
im not cutting it..
anonimasu: Well, why not?
Jymmm: why cut something I have no use for?
anonimasu what a copout... like nobody has ever bought something they have no use for!
Jymmm: looks the guy is still working on the plugin.
skunkworks: Ah, VERY cool.
he posted a patch on Apr 09, 2007 5:32 pm
I need a 2HP 10krpm spindle.
though I need a grinder.
a ID grinder ;)
jymmm: my nick isn't registered. everything is open.
hmm looks like when I open a new gcode file in axis the halui.mode.is-auto is set True for a second or two, would that be a bug ?
skunkworks /ns help register
lerman: someone needs a new passwd
yeah. that's why i used a disposible one.
Rugludallur: no, you have to be in auto mode to load a file, so axis has to do that
alex_joni: im reporting a couple of issues now @ sourceforge, some pretty bad others not that bad
actually, I was telling you my birthday. I expect lots of presents (or maybe presence). :-)
32th april 1944?
more likely to be march 24
cradek: ok, it just looks strange because I for one did not expect to enter auto mode untill the gcode is executed
that's what alex_joni said.
I should say 19440324 to meet some ISO standard or other.
lerman: you'll always have one you're breaking
a standard I mean

good night all
anonimasu Yeah, that sounds like the nightmare I went thru.
for subtracting a float pin from another float, which would you rather use sum with neg gain or offset fb ?
Hi-ho, Got a quick question about limit switch functionality.... Anyone about?
