[01:43:25] <jepler> I'm back at my real machine now
[01:43:38] <cradek> hi
[01:43:38] <jepler> did anyone look at back-porting the AXIS jogging fix?
[01:43:58] <cradek> no - I didn't even see that you checked it into trunk
[01:44:03] <jepler> I thought I had, let me see
[01:44:20] <jepler> hm maybe I didn't
[01:45:48] <jepler> looks like I ignored cvs when it told me that I my file was not up-to-date
[01:48:11] <jepler> after 'cvs up' emc doesn't start right (TRUNK)
[01:48:11] <jepler> INIFILE: ERR_CONVERSION, section=TRAJ, tag=LINEAR_UNITS, num=0, lineNo=129
[01:48:23] <jepler> this sounds like what you were talking about earlier, but I just updated..
[01:48:36] <cradek> me?
[01:48:45] <jepler> jmk and alex I guess
[01:48:46] <cradek> I haven't seen that
[01:48:49] <cradek> oh ok
[01:48:54] <jepler> 15:12:54 <alex_joni> INIFILE: ERR_CONVERSION, section=TRAJ, tag=LINEAR_UNITS, num=0, lineNo=139
[01:49:11] <cradek> I thought I saw a relevant commit
[01:49:43] <jmkasunich> that was alex talking, I had no clue what it was about
[01:49:48] <jmkasunich> some scara thing
[01:49:49] <jepler> 15:27:57 <CIA-18> alex_joni TRUNK * emc2/src/emc/ini/emcIniFile.cc: check for values first, not only for literals. LINEAR_/ANGULAR_UNITS = 1.0 should still be valid..
[01:49:59] <jepler> maybe he got his change wrong
[01:50:28] <cradek> max still works
[01:56:27] <jepler> no matter whether I take the version before or after that checkin I get some error
[01:57:55] <jepler> er no -- emcIniFile.cc rev 1.2 good, rev 1.3 bad
[02:00:51] <jepler> oh how I hate C++
[02:01:11] <jepler> I think I know what the problem is, but the compiler complains something is private when I try to fix it
[02:04:37] <jepler> cradek: emcIniFile.cc rev 1.3 or 1.4 is OK for yo?
[02:04:38] <jepler> you?
[02:05:29] <jepler> yay I got this error once: invalid command name "-1211240364callit"
[02:14:30] <cradek> the latest was ok for max
[02:14:59] <cradek> LINEAR_UNITS = inch
[02:14:59] <cradek> ANGULAR_UNITS = degree
[02:15:46] <cradek> oh you fixed everything, whee
[02:21:39] <cradek> the 'callit' is fixed here too
[02:21:46] <cradek> thanks!
[02:21:50] <cradek> backport that?
[02:22:08] <cradek> * cradek grumbles about html on the mailing list
[02:24:44] <jepler> * jepler grumbles about wiki spammers
[02:25:02] <cradek> ours??
[02:25:04] <cradek> that's a first if so
[02:25:16] <jepler> no, the tkinter wiki
[02:40:15] <cradek> does anyone know the right fix for the ? src/hal/drivers/m5i20/hostmot***?
[02:41:00] <jepler> cradek: beats me, petev was banging on that last
[02:41:21] <jepler> I saw he removed a bunch of files ?
[02:41:27] <cradek> no clue
[02:41:45] <jepler> are those directories or files?
[02:42:09] <cradek> directories
[02:42:44] <jepler> I don't get that FWIW (only tested TRUNK)
[02:42:58] <jepler> maybe try removing the whole m5i20 tree and 'cvs up'?
[02:43:23] <cradek> thought I did that, trying again
[02:44:39] <cradek> by golly
[02:45:44] <jepler> the m51 bugfix got backported?
[02:45:55] <cradek> yes I did that today
[02:46:03] <jepler> thanks
[02:46:05] <cradek> sure
[02:46:40] <jepler> I'll test that the callit and jog bugs are fixed on 2.1, then I'm done for the night
[02:47:02] <cradek> sounds smart
[02:47:34] <jepler> are you going to try to make a release yet tonight?
[02:48:00] <cradek> not sure. I wish I had heard back from ray.
[02:48:32] <jepler> what was he going to look at?
[02:48:36] <cradek> mini
[02:48:54] <cradek> not sure if it's old bugs or new ones though
[02:49:03] <cradek> if it's old ones, no big deal probably
[02:52:00] <jepler> whoops my 2.1 tree was configured for run-installed
[02:55:49] <jepler> yay both seem fixed
[02:56:29] <cradek> cool
[03:01:12] <cradek> time for me to quit talking on that other channel now
[03:01:17] <jepler> no kidding
[03:02:50] <cradek> he says he programs haas, but haascnc.com says it works contrary to what he says
[03:05:38] <jmkasunich> score one for documentation ;-)
[03:06:00] <jmkasunich> night jeff
[03:11:28] <SWPadnos> hmmm. the cnczone discussion about G53/G28 has an interesting feature of Mach: G28.1: home specified axes only (via intermediate point)
[03:12:51] <cradek> in a similar way I'd like X,Y=whatever, Z=2 for a tool change location
[03:13:29] <SWPadnos> that would be half the solution (roughly)
[03:13:47] <SWPadnos> you still need to drop the current tool into the correct slot, then move to the new slot
[03:14:06] <cradek> oh we're not talking about the same thing
[03:14:09] <SWPadnos> ok :)
[03:14:14] <cradek> I mean for a simple manual tool change
[03:14:22] <cradek> it would go "up"
[03:14:32] <SWPadnos> ah - just "retract for manual tool change"
[03:14:38] <cradek> right
[03:14:52] <cradek> well or a turret too - who cares where the table is
[03:16:40] <cradek> boy did I get distracted
[03:17:25] <SWPadnos> heh
[03:17:41] <SWPadnos> me too. I should be working on some software (not EMC, unfotunately)
[03:25:30] <cradek> build build build
[03:25:51] <SWPadnos> heh - release time? ;)
[03:25:55] <cradek> yes
[03:26:02] <SWPadnos> cool
[03:26:12] <SWPadnos> I guess I'll update the laptop when I get to Houston tomorrow
[03:51:50] <jmkasunich> cradek: thanks for doing the release
[03:52:04] <jmkasunich> hopefully this one will last a month, not a week
[03:53:05] <cradek> I agree!
[03:53:07] <cradek> and you're welcome
[03:53:43] <cradek> hmm, I think analog joystick jogging was also fixed, but that didn't make the changelog
[03:53:59] <cradek> too late now :-)
[03:54:20] <jmkasunich> analog joystick jogging? is that code, or just an interesting HAL config?
[03:54:58] <jmkasunich> joystick->sim-encoder->encoder->motion is I thought how it was being done
[03:55:16] <cradek> halui has analog jog input pins now
[03:55:21] <jmkasunich> oh, ok
[03:55:28] <jmkasunich> saves the messing around in HAL
[04:05:52] <cradek> goodnight
[11:35:35] <SWPadnos_> SWPadnos_ is now known as SWPadnos
