[00:00:08] <r00t4rd3d> nah
[00:00:11] <r00t4rd3d> not in years
[00:00:18] <WillenCMD> the patches get error 404 not found when i ran
[00:00:24] <r00t4rd3d> and at the time i only "played" with it
[00:00:40] <WillenCMD> when i do ebuild manifest

[00:01:55] <r00t4rd3d> the link has probably changed
[00:02:04] <r00t4rd3d> to a different kernel
[00:03:33] <r00t4rd3d> http://cvs.gna.org/cvsweb/magma/base/arch/x86/patches/?cvsroot=rtai
[00:04:08] <WillenCMD> i downloaded the patches
[00:05:03] <WillenCMD> i guess ill try and build it my self
[00:05:15] <r00t4rd3d> well if you get 404 then your path is not correct or mis-spelled
[00:05:52] <WillenCMD> its attempting to download them from www.kernel.org
[00:06:21] <WillenCMD> patch-2.6.34.5.bz2
[00:06:31] <r00t4rd3d> http://cvs.gna.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/magma/base/arch/x86/patches/hal-linux-2.6.34.5-x86-2.7-04.patch?rev=1.2;content-type=text%2Fx-diff;cvsroot=rtai

[00:07:10] <r00t4rd3d> is the one from the guide i believe
[00:07:55] <WillenCMD> i have that one
[00:08:39] -!- jpk has quit [Ping timeout: 260 seconds]
[00:09:53] <r00t4rd3d> seems like the guide is maybe wrong
[00:10:04] <r00t4rd3d> Next, download RTAI kernel patches from RTAI CVS [1], and save it under /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/rtai-sources/files
[00:10:13] <r00t4rd3d> ebuild /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/rtai-sources/rtai-sources-2.6.34.5-r4.ebuild manifest
[00:10:19] <r00t4rd3d> its not the same path
[00:11:06] <WillenCMD> ah i see
[00:11:20] <r00t4rd3d> the whole /file thing
[00:11:29] <WillenCMD> ill cp it too the rta-sources dir
[00:12:31] <r00t4rd3d> that will probably resolve the 404
[00:13:31] <r00t4rd3d> im not sure how ebuild works though to be honest
[00:13:35] <r00t4rd3d> or where it looks for stuff
[00:14:24] <WillenCMD> the 404 errors are from teh http request
[00:14:29] <tjb1> Anyone explain why people put the bearings at an angle like this? - http://www.cnczone.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=39680&amp;d=1182868580
[00:14:36] <WillenCMD> moving the patch did not resolve it
[00:14:43] <WillenCMD> i'll just attempt to build it my self
[00:14:47] <r00t4rd3d> whats the http link?
[00:15:27] <WillenCMD> i cant paste into this stupid irq program
[00:15:39] <WillenCMD> irc*
[00:15:42] <r00t4rd3d> ctrl c , ctrl v
[00:15:58] <WillenCMD> lol come on man i diserve more credit then that
[00:16:03] <r00t4rd3d> :D
[00:16:10] <r00t4rd3d> right click, mark ?
[00:16:12] <WillenCMD> i tried ctrl+shift+v
[00:16:13] <JT-Shop> ctrl v works for me
[00:16:16] <WillenCMD> no right click
[00:16:22] <WillenCMD> im on the live cd
[00:16:28] <WillenCMD> its irssi

[00:17:03] <r00t4rd3d> yuck
[00:17:25] <WillenCMD> to hell with this i'll try and build it if it doesn't work i'll come back
[00:17:46] <r00t4rd3d> hope you got time
[00:17:50] <WillenCMD> i don't need linuxcnc anyway, i redid the make file, it only installs hal and its components
[00:17:54] <r00t4rd3d> more so with a live cd
[00:18:03] <WillenCMD> i already have all the steps done
[00:18:04] <andypugh> tjb1: They do it that way because other ways don't work as well.
[00:18:23] <WillenCMD> just trying to install rtai
[00:18:28] <andypugh> Does anyone know if locale.h exists on a liveCD install?
[00:18:40] <tjb1> andypugh: So putting two of them directly on top is worse? It would seem that with them at an angle like that they would always try to deflect out
[00:18:42] <WillenCMD> on the ubuntu?
[00:18:56] <andypugh> Ah, you mean the stagger?
[00:19:05] <andypugh> WillenCMD: Yes
[00:19:15] <JT-Shop> name that tune http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&feature=endscreen&v=LgsDWb0orSQ
[00:19:16] <r00t4rd3d> keeps the saw dust out from under the bearings too
[00:19:27] <andypugh> They stagger them so the nuts miss each other :-)
[00:19:34] <r00t4rd3d> which you will learn is a pain with cncrp carriages
[00:20:02] <tjb1> andypugh: No I mean how they are on the side of the pipe, those are the bearings holding the gantry up so the bearings arent directly supporting the weight
[00:20:38] <r00t4rd3d> its like a roller coaster
[00:21:02] <tjb1> Roller coasters I have been on have 3 bearings, top-bottom-side
[00:21:05] <tjb1> :)
[00:21:17] <r00t4rd3d> old school coaster
[00:21:19] <JT-Shop> is that lathe made from a stack of engine blocks?
[00:21:31] <tjb1> Ah nevermind…I figured it out

[00:59:01] <WillenCMD> alright here goes nothing, i edited the linuxcnc makefile to only install hal and its components
[01:06:53] <tjb1> Hey JT-Shop can yours do this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DoHJ_rVxjhw&feature=related
[01:14:21] <r00t4rd3d> nah, his just gets drunk and ends up on the front lawn, naked.

[01:20:45] <WillenCMD> now im going to update to rtai-3.9

[01:34:46] <Tom_itx> anyone familiar with the old sears atlas lathe?
[01:40:54] <tjb1> Im thinking I need to reverse my Z axis...
[01:42:09] <tjb1> Someone care to give input on this idea
[01:42:56] <tjb1> Current z-axis - http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/580257_4393785638773_1073429308_n.jpg and the current frame - http://a5.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/242348_4373987783839_52552144_o.jpg
[01:46:20] <Tom_itx> you mean reverse the direction?
[01:46:53] <tjb1> I mean put remove the plate holding the two linear rails
[01:47:09] <tjb1> and bolt the plate to the carriages instead of the extrusion to the carriages
[01:47:15] <tjb1> So the motor and everything move up and down
[01:47:28] <Tom_itx> why?
[01:48:00] <tjb1> To get the travel I need, I have to make these long aluminum plates…like the one the linear rails are on
[01:48:03] -!- sumpfralle has quit [Ping timeout: 260 seconds]
[01:48:24] <tjb1> and currently if I switch to router, I will have to move the whole z axis assembly up or down
[01:49:19] <tjb1> The long down plate isnt a problem with plasma but with router I am having doubts that a piece of 4x1/2" aluminum will be strong enough
[01:49:39] <tjb1> Do you follow?
[01:49:49] <Tom_itx> not entirely
[01:50:05] <tjb1> let me take two pictures here and it should explain it
[01:51:52] <tjb1> http://www.facebook.com/images/spacer.gif
[01:51:58] <tjb1> Sorry not that link
[01:52:01] <tjb1> http://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/320464_4394173648473_1602412952_n.jpg
[01:53:26] <tjb1> Mount that side to the carriages instead of the back extrusion and then mount the router/torch like this - http://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-snc7/420447_4394172608447_148698795_n.jpg
[01:55:35] <tjb1> Do you follow now Tom_itx ?
[01:57:33] <tjb1> I would lose about 1.5" of Z clearance but it should be much strong as far as mounting the router goes
[01:59:59] <Tom_itx> hmm
[02:00:17] <Tom_itx> i'm not sure it would be more rigid either way
[02:00:31] <Jymmm\AE> WOOHOO! Got the Fire Control Computer video!!
[02:00:32] <tjb1> What it boils down to, I dont have to make drop plates to get past the acme screw support and everything
[02:00:45] <tjb1> plus all the travel I want/need
[02:00:56] <Tom_itx> moving the motor will fatigue the wires sooner
[02:01:02] <Tom_itx> are you gonna put them in a cradle?
[02:01:02] <tjb1> If I flip it, all the tools ride on the extrusion which is going to be stronger than any drop plate I make
[02:01:10] <tjb1> I have energy chain
[02:01:22] <Tom_itx> guess it's your call then
[02:01:32] <Tom_itx> i'd probably make the plate spacers myself
[02:01:49] <tjb1> Whys that?
[02:03:03] <Tom_itx> you'd be moving more mass for one thing
[02:03:28] <Tom_itx> if you flipped it
[02:03:31] <tjb1> The current way I am mounting it, I already have to drop the z assembly at least 1-2" for the floating Z to work. If I mount it like it currently is, the absolute bottom travel I can get is with everything extended
[02:03:40] <tjb1> The screw is a 1/2-10 single start
[02:03:57] <Tom_itx> i'm not sure
[02:04:27] <tjb1> Well I sure am glad the floating z plate holes match up to the extrusion :D at least I wont have to redo that
[02:04:53] <tjb1> Just really have to drill 6 holes to test this and get bolts
[02:05:55] <tjb1> My mounting plate is going to look like swiss cheese
[02:07:24] <toastyde1th> fixture plates usually wind up that way, yeah

[02:15:29] <FinboySlick> Holy expletive and curseword!
[02:15:42] <FinboySlick> My mill is a crummy design.
[02:18:49] <tjb1> Its always crummy when you find something better
[02:20:10] <FinboySlick> Ended up shimming about 0.012" under the Z axis to get it perpendicular in the X direction. An extra 0.007" to get it perpendicular in the Y direction. I'm all proud of myself, ~0.00025 deviation on both sides of the square...
[02:20:20] <FinboySlick> Then I check for tramming of the head.
[02:20:33] <FinboySlick> Zero adjustment in the X direction.
[02:20:47] <FinboySlick> None, zip. The thing is pinned and can't rotate.
[02:21:09] <tjb1> remove pin, problem solved
[02:21:15] <FinboySlick> The spindle is in a cast iron sleeve that's way too tight for adjustments.
[02:21:54] <FinboySlick> tjb1: That's for another day, yes.
[02:22:17] <FinboySlick> But I'm still pretty darn disappointed.

[03:23:29] <FinboySlick> The blender game engine is quite a bit of fun to play with.
[03:24:07] <mutilator> so..... i'm in the market for a home mill, like 2k budget, any recommendations?
[03:24:36] <Tom_itx> what do you want to cut with it?
[03:24:47] <mutilator> wood and plastics
[03:24:51] <mutilator> maybe aluminum
[03:28:21] <FinboySlick> mutilator: From another beginner: Aluminium is not a very good material to start milling on ;)
[03:30:13] <mutilator> yea i dont have any plans but maybe
[03:30:45] <jdh> big mill, little mill, router type of thing, new, used, homebuilt
[03:31:34] <mutilator> i figured a 2k budget would kind of guide the size/quality
[03:32:14] <mutilator> http://probotix.com/FireBall_v90_cnc_router_kit/
[03:32:17] <FinboySlick> mutilator: If you go cheap chinese: make sure you can adjust it!
[03:32:18] <mutilator> like this was recommended
[03:32:41] <mutilator> but the guy who recommended it had never used it, it was just his 'choice' after looking

[03:57:11] <BHSPiMonkey> if I had a 2k budget, I'd blow it on a 3d printer instead :D
[03:57:30] <FinboySlick> BHSPiMonkey: But with a mill you can make one.
[03:57:53] <r00t4rd3d> i could build a 4'x8' cnc router for 2k

[07:54:51] * mrsun has a problem .. i have a house .. and a foundation ... problem is that the house stands on H beams on the side of the foundation .. with about 1.5 meters sticking out on each side, i need to move this house over the foundation without resorting to a mobile crane ... to little space for machines to move around the sides of the foundation ... :/
[07:56:06] <archivist> there are sliding jacks for that sort of work

[07:58:26] <archivist> http://www.billboley.co.uk/
[08:00:56] <mrsun> i wonder how far out the insulation on the house foundation goes, dont know if that manages to carry the load or if it gets destroyed under the gravel else i was thinking of using palettes and wooden beams to slide it over the foundation then lift it down gently with hydraulic jacks
[08:01:11] -!- dhoovie has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
[08:02:23] <mrsun> 1200x400 .. and i guess its laying so that it sticks out 400 .. that would give me a working area of 1 meter on each side, that realy should be enough
[08:02:44] -!- dhoovie [dhoovie!~kvirc-aye@122.177.247.84] has joined #linuxcnc
[08:02:49] <mrsun> just make some sliding shoes for the H beams so they dont dig into the wood and drag the thing over :P
[08:03:31] <mrsun> i freakin hate working with this heavy stuff .. the move of the house (about 20km on small roads) went fine atleast =)

[08:05:03] <archivist> I do :)
[08:05:10] <mrsun> it should slide just fine with some force steel to wood
[08:05:20] <mrsun> with sliding shoes under the H beams like i said
[08:05:37] <archivist> I move all my machinery with rollers
[08:05:40] <mrsun> alot of good friction so it just wont go =)

[08:10:23] <mrsun> the one driving yesterday thought it was about 10 - 11 tones
[08:10:24] <archivist> not too heavy then
[08:10:36] <mrsun> tonn

[08:15:46] <Jymmm\AE> ouch
[08:15:54] <mrsun> so just need to be lifted up above the foundation and slided sideways i think =)
[08:18:09] <mrsun> the one building the foundation should have waited with putting the insulation in place ... so we would have a good solid ground to do this thing on =)

[10:26:26] -!- dhoovie has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
[10:26:34] <pilla_> How to figure out if a certain CNC miller (the CNC3020t in this case) has a home switch?
[10:27:01] <archivist> your eyes
[10:27:28] <pilla_> Where to look :)

[10:28:41] <Loetmichel> usually ant the end of the Travel
[10:28:49] <Loetmichel> mostly on the left end ;-)
[10:29:03] <archivist> next you will be wanting us to come over and look for you
[10:29:20] <pilla_> :D
[10:30:27] <pilla_> Sorry for being an absolute noob ;) I'm interested in learning, but I'm coming from absolutely nowhere
[10:31:24] <archivist> I understand, but for some things one has to actually look at the item or read its manual
[10:32:03] <archivist> or even take it apart to see how it works
[10:32:08] <pilla_> The problem is that it came without manual
[10:32:23] <pilla_> And I don't think my prof would be amused if I took it apart
[10:33:10] <pilla_> So I guess that if the cable that goes into the control box has 4 pins, there should be a home switch? ...right?
[10:33:56] <archivist> one of these ? http://www.ebay.com/itm/CNC-3020-ROUTER-ENGRAVER-DRILLING-MILLING-MACHINE-/110698918637
[10:34:12] <pilla_> Yep

[10:39:47] <pilla_> I completely overlooked that big suspicious red text. Thank you!
[10:40:28] <archivist> now you realise what using ones eyes is about :)
[10:41:53] <archivist> now do some exploration on the back of your control box and follow the limit socket and any wiring
[10:44:20] <pilla_> My control box seems to be different. No Limit-In port
[10:44:56] <archivist> the ebay auction also has enough pictures to show any limit switches...none
[10:45:13] <pilla_> The manual itself has a picture with a limit-in port
[10:45:24] <archivist> I saw that
[10:45:46] <archivist> so just manually home the machine
[10:46:13] * archivist has to go out

[10:51:26] <pilla_> so actually it seems I have to control my spindle directly, I have 3 axes with 4 pins into control box. As a parallel cable has place for some input ports, it shouldn't be too difficult to build in a home switch? Might be a good project after I understand what I'm doing XD

[12:54:32] <jdh> bah... spindle snobs.
[12:55:05] <jdh> dremel is fine as long as you are aware of it being a dremel and don't expect more than dremel quality.
[12:55:32] <skunkworks> heh
[12:56:19] <archivist> I had one let go at full revs one day :)
[12:56:37] <jdh> cool, what parts went flying?
[12:57:08] <archivist> a segment fell out the commutator
[12:57:32] <syyl_tb-> duck and cover? ;)
[12:57:33] <archivist> I do prefer them to the proxon rubbish
[12:57:47] <syyl_tb-> i prefer a real spindle...
[12:58:13] <archivist> the part didnt come out the case so was a safe death
[12:58:14] <syyl_tb-> one can build a spindle for cheap, that stands a lot more than a dremel/proxxon
[12:58:40] <jdh> you want to put a $2000 0.0001" runout 40krpm spindle on an MDF machine with sloppy acme screws?
[12:59:04] <syyl_tb-> i would build a spindle for 100 bucks
[12:59:09] <archivist> ER spindle and a rc bldc motor
[12:59:24] <syyl_tb-> for example
[12:59:43] <syyl_tb-> or overturn a normal asynchronus motor
[12:59:53] <jdh> that would be a good second spindle.
[12:59:58] <jdh> or third.
[12:59:58] <syyl_tb-> or build a spindle with flat belt drive..

[13:08:20] <Loetmichel> depends
[13:08:41] <Loetmichel> my small spindles have two simple 608zz
[13:09:13] <Loetmichel> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=13221&g2_imageViewsIndex=1 <- will be mounted here:
[13:09:24] <archivist> preload them a bit, should be good enough for most work
[13:09:33] <Loetmichel> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=12797
[13:09:57] <Loetmichel> instead of the proxxon shaft
[13:10:20] <Loetmichel> will be loohing like this when done: http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=12846

[13:10:48] <Loetmichel> just with some 2mm lexan cover
[13:11:08] <jdh> if you are willing to use a dremel/proxxon, you probably don't have any way to make bearing blocks or associated hardware.
[13:11:42] <jdh> just the two radial bearings?
[13:11:45] <Loetmichel> all you need is a small lathe and a file ;)
[13:11:51] <Loetmichel> jdh: right
[13:12:09] <Loetmichel> (and a drill/tap)
[13:13:25] <skunkworks> we are using a wheel balancing motor for one spindle (10kish rpm iirc)
[13:13:27] <Loetmichel> but the dremel motors are not suitable to mount in another case because the case IS the motor
[13:13:54] <Loetmichel> i.e: if you omit the case the motor has no bearing blocks left
[13:13:56] <jdh> how do you handle the axial load?
[13:14:09] <Loetmichel> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=284
[13:14:11] <archivist> I have an ER16 on a 1/2" shaft here waiting for a round tuit to be made into a cheap spindle
[13:14:35] <Loetmichel> jdh: a bit if axial load isnt a problem for 2 preloaded radial bearings
[13:14:45] <Loetmichel> especially if biog enough
[13:14:48] <Loetmichel> big
[13:14:59] -!- _1SheYode has quit [Ping timeout: 260 seconds]
[13:15:47] <jdh> just load the 'outside' of each bearing?
[13:16:30] <jdh> I see cheapish er16/20 spindle shafts on ebay, but all chinese.
[13:16:31] <Loetmichel> no, the inside
[13:17:18] <Loetmichel> outside sits in the bearing block , inside is pressed together by the er11 shaft/the coupling
[13:17:21] -!- mk0 [mk0!~orr@plasmoteg-1.bas-net.by] has joined #linuxcnc
[13:18:07] <Loetmichel> it may be a good idea to throw a small rubber o-ring between upper bearing and coupling to get some kind of smothed force even if the shaft heats up
[13:18:26] <Loetmichel> and elongates
[13:19:41] <archivist> could use three cheap bearings, two at head end with a shim to set preload and one sliding at the rear
[13:20:58] <Loetmichel> could. but for an er11 shaft that would be "using cannons to shoot sparrows" like we say in germany ;-)
[13:22:08] <jdh> I'll have to consider that for an add-on high speed spindle.

[14:30:32] <archivist> FinboySlick, good
[14:31:02] <FinboySlick> archivist: The head is still way out of tram though, and it's pinned in place, bastards :P
[14:33:26] <archivist> also double check methods, did the column shimming put the head out, can you measure spindle axis to z axis properly
[14:36:42] <FinboySlick> archivist: Hmmmm... I'm sure any movement in the column put the head out, Doesn't look all that much worse than before I straightened it though. Maybe it was misaligned in the other directions.
[14:37:27] <FinboySlick> archivist: I've got an indicator in the spindle doing a ~4" circle on the table.
[14:38:19] <FinboySlick> I think the worse measurement is about 0.01" difference side to side.
[14:41:19] <archivist> I did see the amount you shimmed the column, seems a lot
[14:41:34] <archivist> did you over do it
[14:42:15] <FinboySlick> archivist: It was progressive.
[14:42:18] <archivist> what we cannot know is how the chinese make the machine
[14:42:35] <syyl_tb-> chiseling?
[14:42:42] <syyl_tb-> at least my lathe looked like that..
[14:43:55] <archivist> for a 1k$ machine I expect shite but not 8K machine
[14:44:36] <syyl_tb-> thats the problem :/
[14:46:17] <archivist> have they just fitted the Z rails to the column incorrectly

[14:53:21] <FinboySlick> That's what I mean by both sides.
[14:54:45] <FinboySlick> I measured error in the square to be about half a thou over 6"
[14:56:29] <FinboySlick> So I tweaked until I had a quarter thou on both the forward and reverse test.
[14:56:47] <archivist> ok
[14:56:59] <FinboySlick> (I can get that difference just tightening the bolts a tad more/less.
[14:57:34] <archivist> or just pushing the column with your little finger
[14:58:00] <FinboySlick> I'll have to check that ;)
[14:59:03] <archivist> it is an "interesting" check
[14:59:43] <FinboySlick> archivist: I either have a rigidity problem in the mill or my finger if that works.
[14:59:49] <archivist> everything is elastic, it is just the amount
[15:00:41] <archivist> it is why professional machines have huge columns
[15:01:21] <FinboySlick> Yeah. This one is a fairly large cast-iron piece considering the size of the machine.
[15:01:49] <FinboySlick> I'll definitely try your finger check when I get home tonight though.
[15:02:39] <archivist> my 5 axis would spring about 9 thou when first built, I had to stiffen the column
[15:03:08] <FinboySlick> One thing that surprised me while shimming is that it stood on its own despite the bolt being loosened, I had to tilt it to insert the shim. I expected it to nod forward due to the weight of the head.
[15:03:44] <FinboySlick> I think this has to do with the 'counterweight' spring though.
[15:04:09] <archivist> I have a test indicator on a stand that works to 100ths of a thou and that senses a little finger easily even though it has a solid column
[15:06:32] <FinboySlick> archivist: I believe you... I'll be pretty happy when I get to the point where I can/need to measure within 1/100 thou.
[15:07:10] <archivist> never had a lot of use for it at all
[15:08:07] <pcw_home> thats less than a wavelength of light
[15:08:53] <FinboySlick> archivist: I'm not too keen on having to remove the head... I guess it'll be the weekend project.

[18:54:46] <WillenCMD> Im hoping its just a kernel config setting or a driver
[18:55:40] <WillenCMD> The kernel seems to load every driver known to man, how do i edit the drivers and modules it loads? i disabled everything that didn't apply to my pc in the config
[18:56:10] <andypugh> Does it seem reasonable to limit the LCD display driver I am working on to 19 decimal digits?
[18:56:19] <cradek> it's usually a bios setting or hardware problem.
[18:56:34] <andypugh> (you probably want a decimal point, and I don't know of many more than 20 chars wide)
[18:56:49] <WillenCMD> I know its not a hardware or bios issue because using the linuxcnc distro of ubuntu 10.04 i see great latencies with no overruns
[18:57:06] <cradek> aha, problem solved then :-)
[18:57:12] <WillenCMD> lol
[18:57:44] <andypugh> The reason being that I can get 19 decimal digits into a long int, and eliminate a bunch of floating point operations.
[18:57:50] <WillenCMD> nevertheless im still stumped
[18:58:41] <WillenCMD> Im thinking it could be a video driver error

[21:00:37] <WillenCMD> where can i find the standord rtai config used by linux cnc
[21:00:55] <WillenCMD> the one that is used by the built cd's
[21:01:29] <tjb1> Somewhere on the internet

[21:07:31] <WillenCMD> i have been trying to compare xenomai against rtai, but i haven't been able to find any benchmark comparison's, just individual's thoughts on the two
[21:08:40] <micges> what are you compare? latency?
[21:09:11] <WillenCMD> yes, xenomai seems like a pretty good alternative
[21:09:34] <WillenCMD> also they seem to keep updates more regular than rtai
[21:10:03] <micges> yes
[21:10:23] <micges> but latency is little worse
[21:10:31] <WillenCMD> thats what i have heard
[21:10:49] -!- mk0 has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[21:11:12] <micges> probably there will be xenomai support in 2.6.0
[21:11:13] <sliptonic> tjb1: Sorry, stepped away to the machine for a bit. Thanks.
[21:11:24] <micges> and rt-preempt also
[21:11:44] <WillenCMD> i also feel rtai has a more broad API spectrum than xenomai, being that it also supports Python and includes a hefty set of examples.
[21:11:47] <micges> I hope we will have enough time to do this ;)
[21:12:59] <WillenCMD> the more i learn, the more i wan't to do more, how much of an undertaking would a port to the new 3.0 kernel take, as far as i can see it isn't even being discussed by the rtai developers
[21:13:39] <micges> it was
[21:14:01] <micges> Paolo said that he is working on supporting 3.x kernels by rtai
[21:14:31] <micges> but he also said that he has many 'daytime' duties
[21:14:33] <cradek> he's talked about it for many months and says he has parts done
[21:14:36] <andypugh> In fact, he was going to spend August at it.

[21:16:00] <r00t4rd3d> no luck with gentoo?
[21:16:17] <WillenCMD> no, i got it up and running, but horrible latency... i was up untill 3 in the morning
[21:16:21] <WillenCMD> thats 2 nights in a row
[21:16:25] <r00t4rd3d> lol
[21:16:35] <WillenCMD> its alot of fun though
[21:16:40] <r00t4rd3d> oh im sure
[21:16:44] <WillenCMD> so challenging, i can't tear my self away
[21:17:01] <WillenCMD> seriously the more problems i have with something the more i want to know about it

[21:20:25] <andypugh> That has a fair bit in common with HAL

[21:21:29] <WillenCMD> im hoping it will help with my knowledge in real time system's and developing software for them

[21:24:35] <WillenCMD> but i have been reading some literature on and off, and i am about ready to dust it off, Im just in the middle of this linuxcnc main gui, new configuration program for hal
[21:25:07] <r00t4rd3d> I wonder if Linus could have LinuxCNC up and running on any distro in minutes....
[21:25:18] <r00t4rd3d> or atleast a rt kernel
[21:25:28] <WillenCMD> probably not, he's probably tired of hearing about it
[21:25:39] <r00t4rd3d> probably never hears about it
[21:25:45] <WillenCMD> linux that is
[21:25:57] <WillenCMD> it is strikingly similar to his last name

[21:26:09] <WillenCMD> what ever it is
[21:26:52] <WillenCMD> i do really like gentoo though, i feel like i have complete control over what i want installed
[21:27:02] <r00t4rd3d> odd
[21:27:20] <r00t4rd3d> your just most familiar with that distro most likely
[21:27:32] <WillenCMD> this is my first install of it
[21:27:37] <WillenCMD> i have only used ubuntu

[21:28:54] <WillenCMD> i started to do LFS on saturday, but quickly became inpatient with that

[23:33:31] <Gabe_W> so for some reason this kernel i configured loads an extensive amount of modules.. what do i need to edit to prevent this. There are only 2 in my /etc/conf.d/modules
[23:36:01] <andypugh> A lot of essential-ish stuff is modularised
[23:36:03] <cradek> the kernel is made to auto-load the modules it needs for your hardware
[23:44:11] <Gabe_W> sorry i was eating french fries couldn't type back
