#emc-devel | Logs for 2007-12-01

[00:17:26] <christel> [Global Notice] Hi all! To those of you relying on tor for connections to freenode I am terribly sorry to inform you that non tor-gpg (http://freenode.net/irc_servers.shtml#tor) connections have been blocked. This block may be in place for at least a number of days while we try to deal with systematic abuse. Again, I apologise for the inconvenience and hope that we will find a solution soon. Thank you for using freenode and have a good day!
[15:10:22] <tissf> With radius compensation tool enabled, the rotary axes are allowed or not?
[15:13:35] <tissf> In the docs I see two answers, Yes and another chapter, not, Someone may decide?
[15:24:51] <cradek> it is allowed but it would be very unusual
[15:25:08] <tissf> yes sure !
[15:25:26] <tissf> tanks
[15:25:40] <cradek> where is the incorrect documentation that says it is not allowed?
[15:26:36] <tissf> A moment please I search paragraph
[15:29:09] <alex_joni> * alex_joni kicks CIA-19
[15:29:10] <cradek> brb
[15:40:33] <tissf> can't found !
[15:50:44] <jepler> tissf: I would like to make the emc 2.2.2 release today or tomorrow. Is there anything in the documentation you want to finish doing before I make another release?
[15:52:12] <tissf> hi jepler, yes I want finish tool_compensation, hope for one or two hours :)
[15:52:15] <jepler> OK
[16:28:32] <cradek> alex_joni: uh-oh, sounds like maybe you didn't recalculate the checksums correctly on the latest cd
[19:17:51] <alex_joni> oh, darn
[19:18:09] <alex_joni> then I guess I'll redo it after 2.2.2
[19:19:12] <alex_joni> there was another thing I noticed.. (I seem to have borked up adding jepler's key.. somehow it's missing from the image)
[19:19:30] <alex_joni> but now I have all the stuff in place, so it'll be a quick thing to do
[19:54:15] <alex_joni> hmm.. 2 cores really make a difference in a VM
[19:54:41] <SWPadnos> using one for the VM, or set up as a 2-processor client?
[19:55:02] <alex_joni> 2-rocessor client
[19:55:13] <SWPadnos> oh - interesting
[19:55:24] <alex_joni> (at least in emc2 compile times :)
[19:55:35] <alex_joni> SWPadnos: did I tell you what kind of latencies I get in the VM?
[19:55:47] <SWPadnos> nope
[19:55:57] <alex_joni> I even get runs sometimes when emc2 doesn't complain about missing RT deadlines
[19:56:02] <alex_joni> 20 usec-ish
[19:56:05] <SWPadnos> cool
[19:56:15] <SWPadnos> core2 or athlon/opteron?
[19:56:20] <alex_joni> T7200
[19:56:33] <alex_joni> core2
[19:56:44] <SWPadnos> heh - then my new laptop may be OK :)
[19:56:53] <SWPadnos> it's either a 7200 or a 7400
[19:56:57] <alex_joni> well.. laptop over here too :)
[19:57:06] <alex_joni> but I guess the T makes it obvious
[19:57:26] <alex_joni> the only thing is that I need a docking station for the parport to emerge :D
[19:58:00] <SWPadnos> yeah, that's one missing feature
[19:58:09] <SWPadnos> I do have a serial port though, which is nice
[19:58:23] <alex_joni> it is there.. just unconnected
[19:58:59] <SWPadnos> hmmm - maybe that's why they say it has one on the features page
[19:59:11] <alex_joni> what laptop are you getting?
[19:59:24] <SWPadnos> just got it. one sec ...
[20:00:47] <SWPadnos> http://www.mtechlaptops.com/specifications/mtechm570a.html
[20:01:50] <alex_joni> ewww.. vista
[20:01:59] <SWPadnos> nah - I got it with no OS
[20:02:06] <alex_joni> :D
[20:02:08] <SWPadnos> they actually have that option
[20:03:16] <alex_joni> that's always nice
[20:03:25] <alex_joni> I got one for my wife for christmas
[20:04:01] <SWPadnos> I just noticed that they have a good deal on one of the other laptops - buy one, get a smaller one cheap (like $600 or so for the second one)
[20:06:32] <SWPadnos> ok, time to go sit under ahot shower fro a while. catch you later
[20:06:45] <alex_joni> http://www.mylaptop.ro/laptop/fujitsu-siemens_amilo_pro_v3205_p_1479
[20:06:54] <alex_joni> see you
[20:07:07] <SWPadnos> too tiny ;)
[20:08:28] <alex_joni> well.. it's for her :D
[20:08:39] <alex_joni> but I also liked the specs and the price
[22:12:05] <tissf> jepler: My translations are up to date and commited, the chapter G-Code is finished :)
[22:13:36] <alex_joni> yay
[22:14:24] <jepler> tissf: good
[22:14:34] <jepler> I'll get started on the release
[22:15:47] <alex_joni> jepler: make sure that User_*_fr.lyx contains the proper links
[22:16:35] <tissf> Now I work in the workshop, I will slow down translations ;)
[22:17:08] <alex_joni> tissf: great work..
[22:17:16] <alex_joni> now you need to learn other languages :P
[22:17:38] <tissf> alex you kill me !
[22:18:09] <alex_joni> nah.. you can take a break (a couple years) till you need to do this all again :D
[22:18:30] <alex_joni> the stuff for future releases will probably be very little compared to this
[22:18:49] <alex_joni> oh, btw.. there's one more majour thing which could get translated *hint, hint*
[22:19:31] <alex_joni> hmm.. sorry .. I spoke too soon (I see you finished the website too)
[22:19:48] <tissf> yes
[22:20:13] <alex_joni> jepler: was that you with the new poll?
[22:20:52] <jepler> alex_joni: yes
[22:20:58] <alex_joni> cool
[22:21:05] <jepler> the one about doc format, you mean?
[22:21:49] <alex_joni> yeah, that one
[22:22:13] <alex_joni> but I specifically like the fact that other people start to use joomla :)
[22:22:28] <Roguish> tissf: merci.
[22:22:53] <jepler> I still can't say I like it .. but I'll use it
[22:23:15] <tissf> Roguish: pas de quoi c'est un vrai plaisir :o)
[22:23:44] <alex_joni> jepler: maybe I would chose something else right now, but at the moment it seemed like a good product
[22:24:08] <alex_joni> (not sure anyone wants to invest the time to redo the stuff on another platform..)
[22:27:04] <alex_joni> jepler: say when it's ok to start the SF & linuxcnc stuff
[22:27:55] <tissf> Roguish: You are in Canada?
[22:41:42] <jmkasunich> tissf: I want to thank you for the translations... I've been watching the commits fly by, it was a tremendous amount of work
[22:43:09] <tissf> Thank you, I took great pleasure to translate your writing
[22:45:13] <tissf> jmkasunich: It is you who have given the greatest amount of work.
[22:45:33] <jmkasunich> many people have done lots of work
[22:45:40] <jmkasunich> I haven't done much lately
[22:45:46] <tissf> sure!
[22:47:22] <jepler> tissf: it looks like the new documents are not added to EMC2_User_Manual_fr.pdf -- can you correct this now?
[22:47:49] <jmkasunich> I guess a translator's work is never done ;-(
[22:47:49] <tissf> I look
[22:48:34] <tissf> jepler: 30min please!
[23:14:43] <Roguish> tissf: no, San Francisco East Bay
[23:37:05] <tissf> i have a missing quote around line 1829 ! whereis line 1829 ! :(
[23:38:01] <tissf> jepler: It is in stepconf_fr.lyx
[23:43:44] <jepler> what program says this?
[23:43:56] <tissf> compiler
[23:44:09] <jepler> I dunno, there are 1609 lines in my copy of the file
[23:44:33] <tissf> now: make: *** [../docs/src/Master_User_fr.pdf] Erreur 1
[23:45:36] <alex_joni> hmm.. maybe it doesn't like that you open quotes with " and close them with '' ?
[23:45:57] <tissf> ahah
[23:46:13] <alex_joni> I'm just guessing
[23:46:16] <jepler> the line number might refer to the generated .tex file, which lyx will helpfully delete before you can examine it
[23:46:34] <tissf> !
[23:47:38] <alex_joni> tissf: only 3 times in that file..
[23:48:03] <alex_joni> hmm.. there's another thing:
[23:48:33] <alex_joni> \begin_inset LatexCommand \htmlurl["Fixing Dapper SMI Issues\]{http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?FixingDapperSMIIssues}
[23:52:09] <tissf> i have t removed all ref to _fr in master_user and add now one by one
[23:52:20] <jepler> I added stepconf_fr.lyx to Master_User_fr.lyx and don't get "missing quote" error. I only get "Textclass Loading Error!" and "Encountered one unknown token".
[23:53:46] <tissf> ?
[23:53:58] <tissf> LyX: Missing quote [around line 1829 of file /tmp/lyx_tmpdir12423rQB0Ax/12423kmNogN
[23:54:25] <tissf> only with stepconf_fr.lyx
[23:56:55] <jepler> I don't get that here. Do you have uncommitted changes in your local tree?
[23:57:07] <tissf> yes
[23:57:39] <tissf> It's a mess now!
[23:58:15] <tissf> another problem with ini_homing.lyx
