[10:15:30] <CIA-49> EMC: 03alex_joni 07v2_2_branch * 10emc2/debian/changelog: note hal_input manpage fix
[12:50:42] <rayh> Hi guy. Got a request from someone named BC_Aya to have emc indexed on irseek.com.
[12:50:58] <rayh> They got a lot of bad press when they started without asking permission.
[12:51:11] <rayh> So I guess this is their way around that problem.
[14:23:08] <alex_joni> rayh: irseek seems for IRC logs
[14:23:23] <alex_joni> so I guess it's fine if they index linuxcnc.org/irc/*
[14:44:23] <rayh> Hi alex_joni
[14:44:28] <alex_joni> hey ray
[14:46:31] <rayh> Using fslint to try and clean up a couple of hard drives -- I don't like cleaning up.
[14:46:43] <alex_joni> heh, I bet you don't
[14:46:45] <alex_joni> who does?
[14:47:20] <rayh> Started out with more than 6 gig in redundant files.
[14:52:00] <alex_joni> jepler: http://imagebin.org/17792 (maybe you can add that to axis.unpy.net/translations)
[14:54:38] <cradek> what language is it?
[14:54:51] <alex_joni> serbian
[14:54:57] <alex_joni> it's included in 2.2.5
[14:55:09] <cradek> neat
[14:55:27] <alex_joni> not 100% complete though.. but better than completely missing
[18:43:36] <skunkworks> does this make sense? http://www.cnczone.com/forums/showthread.php?p=450813#post450813
[18:46:01] <alex_joni> is it coming from you?
[18:46:15] <alex_joni> * alex_joni knows the answer without reading :P
[18:46:38] <skunkworks> hi alex
[18:46:59] <alex_joni> hi samco
[18:47:02] <alex_joni> looks fine
[19:01:42] <alex_joni> skunkworks: still have those images from your loadtesting?
[19:02:11] <skunkworks> let me look
[19:02:57] <alex_joni> imagebin doesn't have them anymore
[19:03:54] <skunkworks> yeck.
[19:04:05] <skunkworks> let me check my usb drive
[19:04:48] <alex_joni> brb
[19:08:31] <alex_joni> back..
[19:08:42] <skunkworks> alex_joni: sorry - I don't have them here.. I may have them at work.
[19:08:53] <alex_joni> skunkworks: hmm.. ok
[19:09:02] <alex_joni> if you get ahold of them.. send them to me please
[19:09:09] <skunkworks> I need to be less lazy and stop using image bin.
[19:09:17] <skunkworks> ok
[19:09:25] <alex_joni> email should be ok

[19:44:17] <CIA-49> EMC: 03alex_joni 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/src/Master_Developer.lyx: bump version
[19:44:42] <CIA-49> EMC: 03alex_joni 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/src/code/Code_Notes.lyx: add some more info (mostly chapter names)
[20:04:02] <CIA-49> EMC: 03alex_joni 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/src/gcode/.cvsignore: some more silencing
[20:20:05] <SWPadnos_> this seems contrary to the manual:
[20:20:07] <SWPadnos_> 4 bit OUT TRUE motion.spindle-forward ==> spindle-cw
[20:20:09] <SWPadnos_> 4 bit I/O FALSE motion.spindle-index-enable
[20:20:10] <SWPadnos_> 4 bit OUT FALSE motion.spindle-on ==> spindle-on
[20:20:12] <SWPadnos_> 4 bit OUT FALSE motion.spindle-reverse
[20:20:41] <SWPadnos_> that's what I have after S500M3
[20:20:48] <SWPadnos_> with machine on
[20:21:13] <jmkasunich> hmm
[20:21:28] <jmkasunich> what version are you running?
[20:21:33] <SWPadnos_> 2.2.5
[20:21:51] <SWPadnos_> just installed from the 8.04 liveCD, aj07 rev
[20:23:11] <jmkasunich> *(emcmot_hal_data->spindle_on) = ((emcmotStatus->spindle.speed * emcmotStatus->net_spindle_scale) != 0) ? 1 : 0;
[20:23:18] <jmkasunich> do you have a non-zero spindle speed set?
[20:23:26] <SWPadnos_> * SWPadnos_ whistles off into the distance ...
[20:23:29] <SWPadnos_> oops ;)
[20:23:48] <jmkasunich> interesting that forward is on
[20:23:55] <jmkasunich> *(emcmot_hal_data->spindle_forward) = (emcmotStatus->spindle.speed > 0) ? 1 : 0;
[20:24:05] <jmkasunich> speed must be nonzero
[20:24:16] <jmkasunich> scale is zero? do you have spindle speed override?
[20:24:43] <SWPadnos_> yes, I had fiddled with override and left it at zero
[20:24:45] <SWPadnos_> my bad
[20:24:56] <jmkasunich> np
[20:26:04] <alex_joni> * alex_joni makes a reliefed face
[20:26:05] <SWPadnos_> it is interesting what you notice when you actuall ytry to configure a machine for the first time :)
[20:26:26] <alex_joni> SWPadnos_: that's why you have a min and max spindle speed override in the ini
[20:26:37] <alex_joni> so the operator can't do that during an actual cut
[20:26:56] <alex_joni> (you == integrator decide that 80-120% is acceptable, and set only that)
[20:36:26] <SWPadnos_> hmmm
[20:36:31] <SWPadnos_> ok, I'll do that
[20:36:50] <SWPadnos_> another question: can stepgen velocity mode use doublestep?
[20:36:57] <jmkasunich> yes
[20:37:08] <SWPadnos_> ok, that's good :)
[20:37:13] <jmkasunich> the mode has no effect on actual step generation
[20:37:34] <jmkasunich> it enables or disables the "pretuned position loop" that is part of the slow thread portion of stepgen
[20:40:11] <SWPadnos_> I don't immediately see the difference between the channels that are obviously using doublestep and the one that is in velocity mode, but it looks like I can't get the higher rates on the V mode channel
[20:44:07] <SWPadnos_> isn't it setting stepspace=0 that turns on doublestep?
[20:46:57] <alex_joni> http://axis.unpy.net/01188134101
[20:57:19] <SWPadnos_> I got it - steplen=1 and stepspace=0 does it
[21:00:03] <alex_joni> and you need the reset function
[21:03:36] <SWPadnos_> yep, had it :)
[21:03:48] <SWPadnos_> also to set that port pin.reset parameter to 1
[21:23:56] <alex_joni> good night all
