[20:01:25] <rayh> cradek: When you get a chance, could you look at scripts/demo_hal
[20:01:42] <rayh> I can start it from tickle but I can't go on with the script.
[20:02:13] <rayh> I wonder if it has the same problem with returning that realtime had.
[20:27:58] <cradek> I don't understand what you mean ray
[20:28:08] <cradek> something wrong happens when you run it?
[20:33:55] <rayh> When I issue [exec sudo scripts/hal_demo load & ]
[20:34:11] <rayh> it does the load but locks up tcl
[20:34:59] <cradek> I don't know the specifics about how tcl's exec call works
[20:35:09] <cradek> are you wanting it to return right away, or wait for hal_demo to exit?
[20:36:42] <rayh> I got it. Used scripts/realtime start and realtime stop instead.
[20:36:44] <cradek> ok looks like [exec ... &] returns the pid (right away)
[20:37:05] <rayh> It's supposed to.
[20:37:36] <cradek> sorry, I'm no help about this
[20:38:09] <rayh> I thought that you'd fixed the scripts/realtime so that it returned something yesterday.
[20:38:46] <rayh> I got a working script though, thanks.
[20:40:27] <SWPadnos> the return is only there for the "status" option
[20:41:31] <cradek> rayh: do you know about the motenc-100 that ottos is asking about? I don't
[20:41:51] <rayh> a bit. let me get there.
[20:53:16] <rayh> WAH! I got halconfig running with some startup testing.
[20:53:37] <rayh> if HAL isn't running you can start jmk's config script\
[20:53:47] <rayh> or you can start a raw HAL
[20:53:59] <rayh> then begin building a system.
[20:54:27] <rayh> Now to the linking assistant
