#emc-devel | Logs for 2008-06-27

[01:11:42] <SWPadnos> there's still a dropbox directory, though there may not be any links to it
[01:11:57] <SWPadnos> it may also be out of date (or incomplete)
[01:12:04] <SWPadnos> it does have cp1 though :)
[03:02:13] <cradek> hm, somewhere along the line, classicladder forgot how to show the hal signal names. I really liked that feature.
[03:03:57] <SWPadnos> odd
[03:04:08] <SWPadnos> I did see the memory leak problem today, on sim
[03:04:26] <cradek> me too.
[03:06:23] <jmkasunich> memory leaks are better than water leaks
[03:08:31] <SWPadnos> uh
[03:08:44] <SWPadnos> indeed, that's generally true
[03:08:46] <jmkasunich> (kitchen sink spout, dripping down into the cupboard)
[03:09:45] <cradek> ouch
[03:10:20] <jmkasunich> fixed now - $3 of o-rings, $3 of silicone grease, and about an hour of mild profanity
[03:10:36] <cradek> welcome to home ownership
[03:10:51] <jmkasunich> "welcome"?
[03:10:58] <jmkasunich> been doing it for ~18 years
[03:11:00] <cradek> I suppose that's much better than trying to get a landlord to do something...
[03:13:18] <SWPadnos> I wonder if this change caused signal names to disappear: http://cvs.linuxcnc.org/cvs/emc2/src/hal/classicladder/emc_mods.c.diff?r1=1.3;r2=1.4
[04:31:01] <SWPadnos_> SWPadnos_ is now known as SWPadnos
[07:14:12] <CIA-26> EMC: 03cmorley 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/hal/classicladder/drawing.c: colours caused huge memory leak..reverting
[10:03:02] <CIA-20> EMC: 03cmorley 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/hal/classicladder/symbols_gtk.c: fix editable line and allow comments on variables that can't have signals
[12:09:53] <CIA-20> EMC: 03bigjohnt 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/src/gcode/coordinates.lyx: Removed reference to no longer used dropbox and cleaned up description a little in coordinates.lyx for G92
[12:21:38] <jepler> ah so there is a way to get a live cd that is not based on another livecd: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDCustomizationFromScratch
[19:01:54] <alex_joni> jepler: figuring out how to build a system which boots live and installs seems like a majour thing
[19:09:12] <jepler> alex_joni: yes; I'm not suggesting we do that. I have just always wondered if every live cd released (including the ones from ubuntu) are distant descendants of some oldest live cd, or if it can be made starting with .debs
[19:09:16] <jepler> and I found an answer
[19:10:17] <alex_joni> ah, ok..
[19:10:42] <alex_joni> I think the answer is a bit more complex.. at least I got that impression by talking to people putting the live cd's together
[19:10:54] <alex_joni> it seems there's a mechanism which builds the cd's automagically
[19:11:06] <alex_joni> based on some "seeds" iirc the name
[19:56:50] <skunkworks> Is touchoff broken in trunk?
[19:57:13] <cradek> not that I know
[19:57:29] <skunkworks> can I touchoff in world corrdinates?
[19:57:39] <skunkworks> coordinates?
[19:57:42] <alex_joni> jepler: that reminds me.. did you touch G0 colours in AXIS preview lately?
[19:58:20] <jepler> alex_joni: don't think so. I changed G2/G3 olors in a working rtree but if I checked it in I didn't mean to
[19:58:24] <jepler> ow why is my lag so bad?
[19:58:26] <alex_joni> (a user complained about missing lines for G0 on an week-old checkout.. I suggested he should check out a newer version, and try again.. I remember you playing with the display to fix some issues..)
[19:58:27] <jepler> and my typing?
[19:58:51] <skunkworks> bring up puma config - home all - then try to touch off - the dro never changes
[19:58:53] <jepler> on TRUNK the preview has been less than perfect since I began working on 5-axis preview
[19:59:03] <alex_joni> ok, I'll gather some data, and try to get back to you
[19:59:04] <jepler> but I thought I had it cleared up
[19:59:26] <alex_joni> he said he had a week (maybe more) old checkout
[19:59:32] <jepler> if he's on a 10-day old checkout he should update before doing anything else -- the tree is better now than just after I started adding that work
[19:59:35] <alex_joni> might have been between commits
[19:59:36] <jepler> (I dunno if "10 days" is the right number, but something like that ..)
[20:00:19] <skunkworks> wait - should it be 'show relative position' ?
[20:00:40] <cradek> skunkworks: you have to be in world (XYZ) to use touch off
[20:00:46] <skunkworks> I am
[20:00:48] <alex_joni> skunkworks: I remember it used to work with puma
[20:00:48] <cradek> also yes you have to be showing relative position to see it
[20:00:56] <skunkworks> ok - that was my problem
[20:01:00] <alex_joni> skunkworks: start emc2, hit home all, then switch to world
[20:01:22] <alex_joni> mucking with modes (world/joint/world) will surely get you into trouble sooner or later :)
[20:02:00] <skunkworks> the config defaulted to absolute machine postion.. screwed me up ;)
[21:16:34] <jepler> skunkworks: I had trouble finding a location (offsets) from which the splash screen would execute, but it is working for me on recent TRUNK
[21:16:49] <jepler> (my lines are all curved, which I recall you mentioning on irc)
[21:17:13] <jepler> ooh time to go home from work :)
[21:17:55] <skunkworks> :)
