[10:17:30] <tissf> hi
[10:54:25] <alex_joni> hi
[12:43:55] <tissf> hello Alex wat's up ?
[13:23:35] <alex_joni> tissf: busy at work..
[13:23:38] <alex_joni> nothing exciting
[13:30:06] <tissf> alex_joni: OK! I add G76 in the Trunk french translation
[13:30:32] <tissf> oups G73
[14:22:32] <CIA-21> EMC: 03tissf 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/src/config/ini_config_fr.lyx: French translation G73 and update
[14:22:33] <CIA-21> EMC: 03tissf 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/src/gcode/ (main.lyx main_fr.lyx): French translation G73 and update

[14:22:33] <CIA-21> EMC: 03tissf 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/src/gui/ (axis.lyx axis_fr.lyx): French translation G73 and update
[14:48:54] <cradek> what the heck is G73?
[14:49:27] <SWPadnos> heh
[14:49:40] <SWPadnos> I guess you have to understand french to find out
[14:50:27] <jepler> revision 1.14
[14:50:27] <jepler> date: 2007/12/05 00:51:09; author: cradek; state: Exp; lines: +93 -3
[14:50:27] <jepler> G73 drill cycle with chip breaking
[14:50:50] <cradek> haha
[14:50:53] <cradek> now that's funny
[14:51:30] <jepler> also in the english docs: http://linuxcnc.org/docs/devel/html/gcode_main.html#sub:G73:-Drilling-Cycle
[14:53:09] <SWPadnos> hmmm. does that play nice with 5-axis kins?
[14:53:19] <SWPadnos> (ie, moving W instead of Z)
[14:53:40] <cradek> yes there are drill cycles in all six planes now
[14:53:49] <SWPadnos> or do I need more coffee before asking such questions?
[14:53:56] <cradek> UV plane is G17.1 iirc
[14:54:17] <jepler> so is it arcs that are unimplemented in UVW?
[14:54:24] <jepler> or did those go in too while I wasn't looking?
[14:54:24] <cradek> yes
[14:54:25] <SWPadnos> ah, so G17.1 sets it up to drill "prallel to the current spindle orientation"
[14:54:28] <cradek> no I haven't done arcs
[14:55:00] <cradek> or radius comp (ugh)
[14:55:17] <skunkworks_> jepler: do you have sample pluto-step hal files?
[14:55:40] <skunkworks_> http://www.cnczone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=51790
[14:55:47] <jepler> skunkworks_: configs/stepper/pluto_inch.ini
[14:56:04] <skunkworks_> oh - sweet. thanks
[14:57:23] <skunkworks_> sorry - I was looking for a pluto-step as a top level config.
[15:10:16] <cradek> jepler: I like the new html docs. they look good and the index and anchors work great
[15:12:52] <jepler> cradek: thanks
[15:13:11] <jepler> I like them too
[15:17:10] <alex_joni> I like the docview version better :)

[15:39:27] <CIA-21> EMC: 03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/emc/usr_intf/stepconf/stepconf.glade: clarify the numbers required for pulley setup
[15:40:51] <CIA-21> EMC: 03jepler 07v2_2_branch * 10emc2/src/emc/usr_intf/stepconf/stepconf.glade: from TRUNK: clarify the numbers required for pulley setup
[15:40:52] <CIA-21> EMC: 03jepler 07v2_2_branch * 10emc2/debian/changelog: from TRUNK: clarify the numbers required for pulley setup
[15:41:44] <cradek> good, I don't see how that can be misinterpreted now
[16:07:06] <jepler> cradek: famous last words
[16:11:05] <skunkworks_> you wouldn't happen to have a screen shot of that yet..?
[16:11:27] <skunkworks_> (I don't have trunk installed here anywhere)
[16:24:32] <alex_joni> - <property name="label" translatable="yes">_Pulley ratio (Motor:Leadscrew):</property>
[16:24:35] <alex_joni> + <property name="label" translatable="yes">_Pulley teeth (Motor:Leadscrew):</property>
[16:24:40] <alex_joni> skunkworks_: how do you think it will look?
[16:35:01] <skunkworks_> :) I wanted to post the screen shot to show the change.
[16:35:24] <jepler> just a second, I'll make you one
[16:35:33] <skunkworks_> Thanks
[16:39:14] <jepler> skunkworks_: here you go http://emergent.unpy.net/files/sandbox/Screenshot-EMC2%20Stepper%20Mill%20Configuration.png
[16:39:28] <SWPadnos> heh
[16:39:35] <alex_joni> hahahaha
[16:39:51] <SWPadnos> hey - that looks like a semicolon - is the colon underlined?
[16:39:57] <jepler> SWPadnos: ugly isn't it
[16:39:59] <SWPadnos> (between the edit fields)
[16:40:04] <SWPadnos> yeah
[16:40:08] <jepler> yes, it is an accelerator key or something
[16:40:11] <alex_joni> _:
[16:40:13] <SWPadnos> I didn't notice the glade code for that magenta swish ;)
[16:40:25] <alex_joni> SWPadnos: it's automatic
[16:40:35] <alex_joni> glade does that to highlight recent changes
[16:40:45] <SWPadnos> heh
[16:40:59] <alex_joni> so for a translated app you get all the text in magenta
[16:41:11] <alex_joni> except the untranslated texts .. so you can easily see which ones are left
[16:45:07] <skunkworks_> Thanks again
[16:45:49] <jepler> skunkworks_: I'll make you a real screenshot too if you want it
[16:46:11] <skunkworks_> heh
[16:47:06] <skunkworks_> If it isn't too much trouble. Just shows that you guys are constantly improving things.

[17:05:47] <SWPadnos> now watch jepler's bandwidth usage soar
[17:10:21] <skunkworks_> heh - if it is a problem - I can change it.
[17:10:36] <skunkworks_> jepler: is it a problem?
[17:11:48] <skunkworks_> SWPadnos: where are you?
[17:11:55] <SWPadnos> home
[17:12:03] <SWPadnos> strangely enough
[17:12:10] <skunkworks_> thats odd. ;)
[17:12:21] <SWPadnos> indeed
[17:12:32] <skunkworks_> snowing here agian
[17:12:34] <skunkworks_> again
[17:12:48] <jepler> skunkworks_: not yet
[17:12:52] <SWPadnos> actually, I should be home for the next week or so, other than a short trip to Boston to renew my passport and another one to New York to get a work visa
[17:13:03] <SWPadnos> hmm - it's nice here - 34 degrees
[17:13:28] <skunkworks_> work visa?
[17:13:38] <skunkworks_> for another country?
[17:14:09] <SWPadnos> yep, India
[17:14:16] <skunkworks_> Interesting.
[17:14:33] <SWPadnos> I was originally supposed to go there this Thursday, but that's being rescheduled
[17:14:48] <SWPadnos> yes, it should be interesting :)
[17:15:01] <skunkworks_> how long are you going to be in india?>
[17:16:04] <SWPadnos> just a few days, but the trip takes about a week total
[17:16:25] <SWPadnos> one rest day, one prep day, one shoot day, and depending on the flight cost, possibley another day after the shoot
[17:16:49] <skunkworks_> yikes
[17:17:12] <SWPadnos> the original plan had a day in Zurich on the way out also, but that may not happen with the reschedule
[17:27:24] <skunkworks_> well - atleast you will be getting away from this weather.

[20:49:24] <bible> Hello all
[20:49:58] <bible> question? IS there a 64 bit version of linuxCNC ?
[20:51:23] <fretless85_> ive tryed to patch an rt kernel for my 7.10 64bit system
[20:51:27] <fretless85_> with no luck
[20:51:48] <bible> Is there a 64 bit ubuntu version out there
[20:52:03] <fretless85_> ive tryed to patch an rt kernel for my 7.10 64bit system
[20:52:11] <fretless85_> with no luck
[20:52:22] <fretless85_> lets say there is nothing pre made
[20:52:35] <bible> What does it hang on the kernal or lack of libraries?
[20:52:52] <bible> can it be compiled?
[20:53:09] <fretless85_> on my opinion its my lack of skills in compiling an kernel :D
[20:53:17] <fretless85_> so no idea
[20:53:26] <fretless85_> ive tryed it and failed
[20:53:34] <bible> can it be compiled as an external program?
[20:53:37] <seb_kuzminsky> emc works on 64-bit: http://axis.unpy.net/01180573281
[20:54:01] <fretless85_> y got that link a few minutes ago...i will try it again tomorrow
[20:54:39] <bible> I am there
[20:55:06] <bible> will the live cd work on the 64 bit version
[20:56:24] <fretless85_> it runs on my system
[20:56:32] <jepler> bible: we do not provide pre-built kernels or emc2 packages for any version of linux besides 32-bit Ubuntu 6.06 "Dapper".
[20:56:41] <jepler> 32-bit dapper runs just fine on "64-bit" CPUs
[20:56:47] <fretless85_> right
[20:57:09] <fretless85_> it runs on mine so i guess it will run on yours to ;)
[20:57:56] <bible> Ummm backwords compatability??????????????
