[15:05:49] <Jymmm> pcw_home: Give the coyotes the crack pipe
[15:05:51] <MattyMatt> workaround - coyote pie
[15:07:23] <pcw_home> Charlie took off after it but they are fast and have no trouble scrabbling over a 6 foot fence

[15:15:50] <false> When there is one wolf sighting in The Netherlands, the whole country is buzzing. You have coyotes in your backyard........
[15:16:24] <pcw_home> Coyotes, deer, racoons, opposums...
[15:16:55] <pcw_home> even though we are is a fairly urban area we are close to open space
[15:16:57] <false> Sounds kinda nice, if you don't count the coyotes :P
[15:17:15] <false> And possibly the racoons??
[15:17:38] <false> That's still 50% nice :$
[15:17:51] <pcw_home> Charlie will keep them away but we take him to work and the Coyotes learn when he's not there

[15:18:16] <false> Charlie is you dog I assume?
[15:18:24] <pcw_home> Racoons are not much of a problem as long as you remember tp close the coop doors...
[15:18:43] <false> And you garbage cans, or is that just in movies?
[15:19:05] <pcw_home> Yes charlie is a ~100 lb flat coated retreiver
[15:20:07] <Chemeleon> racoons are master thieves when they want to get into something
[15:20:16] <pcw_home> For whatever reason we dont have garbage can troubles with the raccoons
[15:20:17] <pcw_home> but lots of people do
[15:20:24] <Chemeleon> my parents have been going rounds with them for years, currently they have latching garbage cans that they then set a 25 pound weight on top
[15:20:28] <Chemeleon> the coons still get in from time to time
[15:20:31] <false> My neighbours have one of those retreivers
[15:21:05] <false> Put some electic fencing wire on it?
[15:21:41] <pcw_home> Yeah that probably the only workable coyote deterent
[15:21:56] <false> except for the crack pipe of course

[15:40:49] <t12> pcw_home: does the 7i76e work with linuxcnc right now without lots of trouble?
[15:41:15] <pcw_home> No
[15:41:43] <pcw_home> there are still driver and firmware issues

[15:41:59] <t12> hum
[15:42:16] <t12> what sort of issues? I'm building up a toy machine slowly
[15:42:42] -!- syyl- has quit [Ping timeout: 264 seconds]
[15:42:46] <t12> since its a toy, I could likely help with devel, depending on what there is to do
[15:42:49] <t12> or am i just asking for trouble
[15:42:56] <pcw_home> Getting decent performance and dealing with the Ethernet latencies requires re-timing the I/O at the remote end
[15:43:16] <pcw_home> I'm working on that now
[15:43:42] <false> pcw_home: 1x 7i47 (6x step/dir, 6x encoder) 1 x 7i33 (4x encoder, 1x pwmgen), 7i44, 7i64
[15:44:26] <false> 5x step/dir and 5x encoder on the 7i47 would also be fine
[15:44:40] <t12> is that true also for the other ethernet mesa cards?
[15:44:48] <pcw_home> Ok 4 encoders on 7I47 (each with index) would be more standard
[15:45:04] <pcw_home> Yes all Ethernet cards are the same
[15:45:19] <pcw_home> I do have my retiming stuff close
[15:46:44] <pcw_home> It also has the side benefit of being able to start reads of slow devices before the data is needed (SSI, FanucAbs. BISS, SPI interfaces etc)
[15:47:52] <false> pcw_home: was that last comment for me?
[15:48:37] <pcw_home> so for example even for PCI cards a SSI interface that takes 50 usec to get return data after a request
[15:48:38] <pcw_home> te requies can be started 50 usec before the servo thread invocation
[15:48:55] <pcw_home> the request
[15:49:09] <pcw_home> The 7I47 comment, yes
[15:49:28] <t12> also, the 8i20 makes mention of a 8c20 daughter card, but i dont see the 8c20 on the site or pricelist?
[15:49:52] <pcw_home> we decided to drop the 8C20
[15:50:27] <t12> was that intended to have the 8i20 be a standalone driver?
[15:50:46] <pcw_home> Yes
[15:51:20] <pcw_home> we are working on a integrated model (in the same and smaller sizes)
[15:52:24] -!- d3dhemmer has quit [Quit: Page closed]
[15:52:26] <t12> i guess with the time it will take me to actually build this thing out i might as well go ethernet and expiremental
[15:52:54] <t12> are the 7i76e's available for sale?
[15:53:50] <false> pcw_home: if it's a lot more work then do the more standard config, but my boss wants to use the mill as "conventional" to. So I'm connection 3 mpg's to the table (with enable buttons of course :P), but also need one for the panel/pendant. We also want to connect a small 4th axis so that bring the total encoder count to 9 (including spindle)
[15:57:29] <false> We do a lot of one-offs, and just flattening small pieces of aluminium. We do prototyping so a conventional mill would be a nice addition, but first we need to get the shop floor reoganized :P
[15:59:56] -!- knownasilya114 has quit [Ping timeout: 260 seconds]
[16:00:45] <jthornton> false, link corrected thanks for telling me about it
[16:02:29] <false> no problem, if all webmasters had your response times the www would be a better place :D
[16:04:45] <pcw_home> false: it may be space limited in the 5I20, so I will have to pare sserial channels down
[16:05:17] <pcw_home> Ill see what fits...
[16:06:05] <false> pcw_home, yes you told me it would be about 4, which is more than fine, if I connect another 7i64 I will have more IO then I'll ever need for this mill

[16:46:41] <andypugh> Though they may not have stock, looking at the quoted leadtime.
[16:46:46] <kengu> 1-4 weeks is pretty much the same as from US
[16:47:25] <andypugh> It may save customs hassles though.
[16:48:19] <andypugh> But only if they actually have some, rather than ordering them from the US to fill the order.

[16:49:19] <kengu> or better like "there are" and at hand
[16:50:23] <andypugh> It's the money that is charged for it. I recently bought some stuff from the US. It was $7 for the ball bearings, $12 delivery. Then I was charged £3.75 import duties and a £12 handling fee.

[16:57:58] <kengu> it there a difference in 6i25 and 5i25 other than the umm.. bus.

[17:47:26] <einar__> Good evening.
[17:47:28] <IchGuckLive> nightfall in rome
[17:47:41] <rick___> andy thas a giant parabolic mirror lens....
[17:47:43] <IchGuckLive> hi einar__
[17:47:53] <rick___> that is a
[17:47:57] <uw> lol "walkie talkie"
[17:48:49] <uw> TIL the sun does shine in london
[17:49:00] <IchGuckLive> jeah the coting in england has been cool for the building but heats up the city
[17:49:08] <andypugh> There is a tradition of giving London skyscrapers less flattering names. There is "the potato", "the gherkin", "the shaver"
[17:49:28] <einar__> I'm trying to get LinuxCNC running here. Using USC card. Diagnostics passed. Should LinuxCNC run without the machine?
[17:49:47] <IchGuckLive> yes
[17:49:58] <IchGuckLive> einar__: use a sim maschine
[17:50:12] <IchGuckLive> axis mm for instant
[17:50:37] <andypugh> This is "The Shaver" http://static.guim.co.uk/sys-images/Arts/Arts_/Pictures/2010/7/16/1279294367168/strata-tower-006.jpg
[17:50:38] <IchGuckLive> einar__: are you in the USA
[17:51:31] <andypugh> einar__: LinuxCNC will run, but you will need the USC attached in order to start the USC configs.
[17:51:57] <einar__> No. I'm in Norway.

[18:18:29] <`Nerobro_> what do you mean reclaimed?
[18:18:38] <`Nerobro_> At this point, it's at best a naked hull and engines.
[18:18:42] <`Nerobro_> if they're REALLY FUCKING lucky
[18:18:46] <pcw_home> Yeah
[18:18:56] <`Nerobro_> Most likely, they will take it to be scrapped.
[18:19:07] <`Nerobro_> as a refit of that nature, is very expensive.

[18:19:36] <pcw_home> But more expensive the starting from scratch?
[18:20:11] <`Nerobro_> the hull has been beaten on a shoreline for 18 months. They'd be very lucky is anything within 25' of the starbord side is still straight.
[18:20:18] <`Nerobro_> there's also a mighty big hole in the bottom of the hull.

[21:36:55] <andypugh> It looks like you will need to blacklist the lp module.
[21:36:58] <cradek> you probably oughta reboot after the last crash, though
[21:37:01] <einar_> Uhh... it hurts the same. :-)
[21:37:42] <andypugh> cradek: Do you know how to blacklist (or not load) lp ?
[21:37:56] <einar_> No, I don't.
[21:38:36] <einar_> But I learnt a lot of things I did not know this last hour. ;-)

[21:39:11] <cradek> see /etc/modprobe.d/linuxcnc.conf
[21:39:14] <cradek> edit that and reboot
[21:40:27] <andypugh> To edit that file, type "gksudo gedit" at the command prompt then open the file.
[21:41:13] <andypugh> cradek: http://askubuntu.com/questions/134266/how-do-i-prevent-the-lp-module-from-loading-on-boot suggests that this will get harder in later versions.
[21:42:02] <UncleG> I changed my parallel port via bios and it fixxed a similar problem
[21:42:26] <UncleG> ecp epp err manually set it and it worked
[21:42:32] <andypugh> UncleG: Enabling EPP in the BIOS was likely to come next
[21:42:40] <einar_> Is this the one I need to uncomment: #install parport_pc /bin/true
[21:43:19] <cradek> yes
[21:44:39] <einar_> OK. Time for a "reboot now" then...

[21:47:01] <einar_> Reboot done. Terminal window and "linuxcnc" then?
[21:47:27] <andypugh> do an lsmod and see if "lp" has disappeared

[21:50:28] <einar_> I did enable EPP in Bios.
[21:50:56] <einar_> And I ran the diag program for USC successfully.

[21:56:20] <andypugh> lp is still there.
[21:56:30] <andypugh> Which error do you see in dmesg now?
[21:56:51] <andypugh> The more-promising looking one was [ 990.279136] PPMC: ERROR: no boards found on bus 0, port 0378

[22:02:46] -!- shurshur has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
[22:03:48] <einar_> I do. But there is a "emc2" file where it is still commented out. Does it matter?
[22:04:28] <andypugh> No, nothing in comments matters.
[22:05:10] <andypugh> The "askubuntu" link I posted earlier seems to suggest that there is more to it than just editing that file..
[22:05:31] <PCW> false: if you are around, unfortunately your config will not fit in a a 5I20
[22:06:00] <andypugh> But, as a quick test, now you have enabled EPP, if you sudo rmmod lp then try linuxcnc again, what happens?
[22:07:03] <cradek> I sure wonder what's crashy in there
[22:08:15] <einar_> did that, and lsmod | grep lp. No output OK then?
[22:08:38] <andypugh> Yes
[22:09:10] <einar_> looks the same. Checking logs...

[22:11:17] <andypugh> Hmm
[22:11:30] <andypugh> rmmod parport_pc then try linuxcnc again?

[22:12:59] <einar_> einar@Boxford:~$ sudo rmmod parport_pc

[22:12:59] <einar_> einar@Boxford:~$
[22:13:17] <andypugh> Curious.
[22:13:28] <cradek> I don't think that's the pattern [existence of parport_pc/lp causes it to be crashy]
[22:14:13] <einar_> I did remove that before I think. Scroll up a bit here.
[22:17:41] <andypugh> I don't get the crash, even with no hardware.
[22:18:02] <andypugh> And I have lp and parport_pc loaded...
[22:18:48] <einar_> It's past midnight here, and a customer will call for my help this morning. And he's the one waking up the birds in the morning.
[22:19:04] <andypugh> Which is a shame, as I compiled with debugging flags and could have tracked down ip=e20d0595
[22:19:18] <andypugh> OK, well, we can carry on tomorrow.

[22:19:49] <cradek> ha
[22:20:04] <einar_> Thanks a lot for your assistance. Not working yet. But I learnt alot from you! Goodnight.
[22:20:40] <andypugh> cradek: I know I can't use his ip, but if I could have reproduced the crash I could have found a clue.

[22:43:44] <PCW> Thats entertaining there's a obscure bug with hm2 encoders
[22:46:12] <PCW> very weird, only shows up if you link the rawcounts hal pin to a signal

[22:53:24] <PCW> it in 2.5.1 so its been around a while
[22:53:50] <PCW> doesn't seem serious
[22:54:24] -!- mhaberler has quit [Quit: mhaberler]
[22:54:41] <cradek> if it's crazy like that, it might be a bug of the unpredictable type
[22:55:08] <PCW> as it only affects pre-homed encoder positions if rawcounts is used
[22:55:09] <PCW> but yes it does suggest a loose wiire
[22:58:25] -!- tmcw has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[23:03:16] <cradek> is it related to rollover?
[23:05:49] <cradek> oh forget it - I thought I saw a thing.
