[05:11:21] <CIA-2> EMC: 03cmorley 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/emc/usr_intf/pncconf/ (pncconf.py pncconf.glade): some work towards converting to hostmot2 driver
[12:59:14] <cradek_> cradek_ is now known as cradek
[19:59:06] <alex_joni> seb_kuzminsky: around?
[19:59:23] <seb_kuzminsky> hi
[19:59:28] <alex_joni> one of the german users has some 5i20 + stepper motors reports using 2.3.0-beta2
[19:59:47] <seb_kuzminsky> oh cool!
[19:59:53] <seb_kuzminsky> does it work?
[19:59:54] <alex_joni> he says when he moves more than a certain speed, he can see it overshoots slightly
[19:59:59] <seb_kuzminsky> hm
[20:00:14] <alex_joni> and when idle the motors oscillates a step fwd/rev
[20:00:48] <seb_kuzminsky> can you get a copy of the config?
[20:00:49] <alex_joni> he was using it with 2.2.8, maybe something changed?
[20:00:56] <alex_joni> I'll ask.. but it'll probably take a while
[20:01:14] <seb_kuzminsky> heh, the stepgen was pretty much ripped out and replaced between beta1 and beta2..
[20:01:46] <alex_joni> sweet
[20:02:01] <seb_kuzminsky> it's using the sw stepgen logic now
[20:02:25] <seb_kuzminsky> seems to have fixed the ferror problem reported by matt shaver
[20:02:46] <seb_kuzminsky> replaced all the old bugs with all new bugs :-/
[20:06:12] <jepler> new bugs are what keep us gainfully employed
[20:06:25] <jepler> but .. has anybody else failed to get their last 93 paychecks ?
[20:06:37] <seb_kuzminsky> heh
[20:09:11] <alex_joni> jepler: I got mine
[20:09:54] <alex_joni> they were with the due amount of 0$, but accompanied by some ocasional "thank you's"
[20:13:26] <alex_joni> seb_kuzminsky: I'll pass the word when I get a config
[20:13:36] <seb_kuzminsky> "thank you"
[20:14:14] <jepler> that's true, from time to time someone wants to give me far too much credit
[20:14:26] <jepler> group
[20:14:29] <jepler> oop
[20:14:30] <jepler> s
[20:16:41] <seb_kuzminsky> did you hear: python is switching from svn to hg
[20:17:05] <jepler> no, I hadn't
[20:17:06] <jepler> not bzr?
[20:17:29] <seb_kuzminsky> guido said it seemed to him only canonical ppl like bzr :-(
[20:17:45] <seb_kuzminsky> canonical people and seb ;-)
[20:18:06] <jepler> I have another oddball friend who likes it too
[20:18:17] <seb_kuzminsky> who you callin oddball, oddball?
[20:19:43] <alex_joni> good night oddballs
[20:19:51] <alex_joni> * alex_joni is beat
[20:19:52] <seb_kuzminsky> seeya alex
[20:19:57] <jepler> see you alex_joni
[20:20:07] <alex_joni> have fun ;)
[20:20:26] <seb_kuzminsky> how are we supposed to have fun without any broken configs to analyze?
[20:20:55] <alex_joni> hmm.. that's not that complicated
[20:21:02] <alex_joni> you start by gathering 100 monkeys
[20:21:26] <seb_kuzminsky> we must have at least that many on the emc-users list ;-)
[20:21:33] <alex_joni> loool
[20:21:52] <alex_joni> next you need to train them to write 5i20 hostmot2 stepper configs
[20:21:57] <alex_joni> (some already know how..)
