[00:45:09] <jmkasunich> why is halui still exporting jogwheel related pins?
[01:00:45] <jmkasunich> something is messed up in halui
[01:01:08] <jmkasunich> there are struct fields called joint_select, and joint_selected
[01:01:11] <jmkasunich> with corresponding hal pins
[01:01:41] <jmkasunich> joint_select is never used
[02:55:44] <cradek> the halui jogwheel scheme still works afaik
[02:58:00] <jmkasunich> oops - not anymore it doesn't
[02:58:13] <cradek> that's ok, it sucked anyway
[02:58:26] <jmkasunich> whew....
[03:00:44] <jmkasunich> just about to commit the rest of the s8/u8 changes...

[18:25:12] <alex_joni> jmkasunich: got some plans regarding emc2 for today?
[18:25:29] <jmkasunich> hard to say
[18:25:39] <jmkasunich> dunno if I should be working on emc2, or on the compile farm
[18:25:44] <alex_joni> I'm leaving for a couple of hours..
[18:25:52] <alex_joni> can help later if there's need
[18:26:02] <jmkasunich> I should work on documentation
[18:26:28] <cradek> I'm going to try to 'finish' the threading cycle today
[18:26:43] <jmkasunich> I noticed last night that I didn't document streamer or sampler, I'll make man pages and/or HAL manual entries for them today
[18:27:06] <jmkasunich> also need more documentation for halvcp
[18:27:32] <alex_joni> coo
[18:27:49] <alex_joni> bbl
[18:28:10] <SWPadnos> hmm - I should make sure I have an EMC2-compatible install on my laptop before I leave today
[18:28:44] <SWPadnos> is this flurry of activity (particularly regarding documentation) for an imminent 2.1 release?
[18:28:58] <jmkasunich> imminent 2.1 branch
[18:29:04] <SWPadnos> ah :)
[18:29:12] <jmkasunich> at least a couple months of testing before the official release
[18:29:25] <SWPadnos> right - makes sense
[18:32:12] <SWPadnos> it's really a bummer that the SF board mailing list archive ends sometime in September
[22:28:22] <alex_jon1> alex_jon1 is now known as alex_joni
[22:57:13] <rayh> Hi Alex.
[23:05:33] <alex_joni> hi ray
[23:07:12] <rayh> I wrote up a couple pages on the config picker.
[23:07:18] <rayh> for the user handbook
[23:07:24] <alex_joni> cool
[23:07:30] <rayh> It's small for a chapter by itself.
[23:07:46] <rayh> Maybe I should add the copy config stuff from the wiki.
[23:07:51] <alex_joni> then maybe together with the ini_config stuff
[23:07:56] <alex_joni> just before that
[23:08:02] <alex_joni> yeah, that would be good too
[23:08:08] <rayh> That it what I was thinking.
[23:08:22] <rayh> Okay. I'll do that and commit.
[23:08:49] <alex_joni> good
[23:09:05] <alex_joni> I have a few more chapters to read through, and then I'll say I'm done ;)
[23:09:05] <rayh> You've done a fantastic job on the manual.
[23:09:12] <alex_joni> thanks, wasn't just me
[23:09:20] <alex_joni> I mostly put things together
[23:09:28] <rayh> Looks great.
[23:09:43] <alex_joni> wanna have a hardcopy by christmas
[23:10:17] <alex_joni> so I guess I'll wait to the end of the month, then upload one at lulu.com
[23:10:48] <rayh> Sounds good.
[23:11:14] <rayh> I should have a couple of days next week for reading. I'll go through it also.
[23:11:21] <alex_joni> perfect
[23:11:44] <alex_joni> I think we'll want another small chapter related to configs
[23:11:50] <alex_joni> Upgrading from 2.0.x configs
[23:11:58] <alex_joni> also based on the wiki page
[23:12:12] <rayh> The stuff that is in that wiki page showing the changes?
[23:12:39] <alex_joni> yeah
[23:12:59] <alex_joni> http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?UpdatingConfigurationsForDevelopmentVersions
[23:13:30] <rayh> Once we get a 2.1 testing we'll know that is stable.
[23:14:04] <alex_joni> sure.. after the branch
[23:14:27] <rayh> the dinner bell just rang here.
[23:14:31] <rayh> bbiab
[23:14:36] <alex_joni> ok..
[23:14:43] <alex_joni> if I'm off to bed by then.. good night
[23:17:13] <Lerneaen_Hydra> 'night
[23:35:32] <alex_joni> g'night all
