[00:51:43] <cradek> does anyone see a problem with putting the nurbs patch in trunk? http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?NURBS
[01:16:34] <jepler> is somebody committed to bugfixing it?
[01:16:46] <cradek> nope
[01:17:27] <cradek> that's why I'm torn - I don't think it has an active maintainer - but it seems to be working and I don't want it to be lost again.
[01:17:29] <jepler> new experimental features are entirely appropriate on trunk
[01:18:17] <jepler> but you risk being on the hook for it if you check it in :-P
[01:18:25] <cradek> ouch
[01:48:29] <CIA-2> EMC: 03jepler 07v2_3_branch * 10emc2/configs/halui_pyvcp/halui.ini: there's no need for this to use POSTGUI_HALFILE, and it trips up GUIs other than AXIS
[01:51:13] <SWPadnos> should that $Revision$ keyword be nuked?
[01:51:55] <jepler> argh, I didn't see it
[01:52:00] <jepler> I should pay more attention
[01:52:44] <SWPadnos> I think I had grepped around for those, but I must have missed revision
[01:53:06] <SWPadnos> I wasn't sure if they were being left in the configs on purpose :)
[01:53:33] <jepler> that may be the case
[01:53:48] <jepler> I have a vague memory that the VERSION line is mandatory, anyway, or that it was in 2006 or so
[01:53:57] <jepler> :-P how's that for bringing certainty to the subject?
[01:54:33] <SWPadnos> at least as good as me
[01:56:38] <jepler> well, don't remove them on the branch
[01:56:41] <CIA-2> EMC: 03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/configs/halui_pyvcp/halui.ini: from branch: don't use POSTGUI_HALFILE, there's no need
[05:53:07] <CIA-2> EMC: 03cmorley 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/emc/usr_intf/pncconf/ (pncconf.py pncconf.glade): make user signal names add to list of signals available. make mesa page update pin data when next is pushed
[09:15:12] <micges> alex_joni: around?
[09:22:13] <alex_joni> yup
[09:23:23] <micges> remember g64 after on/off problem ?
[09:23:58] <micges> jepler: fixed it but today I've noticed that problem again
[09:24:50] <micges> alex_joni: after following error machine run program in g64 mode even if in gcode was g61
[09:25:34] <micges> and if I mdi g61 then run program it run properly
[09:32:27] <alex_joni> probably it gets reset on abort
[09:34:41] <alex_joni> micges: do you remember when it was?
[09:37:46] <micges> wfm
[09:39:20] <micges> http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2046142&group_id=6744&atid=106744
[09:40:12] <micges> it was around that bug report
[09:40:16] <micges> 08.2008
[09:40:26] <alex_joni> I see
[09:40:46] <alex_joni> yeah, just found it
[09:42:44] <micges> alex_joni: one question before: when I have following error and after reenabling machine will G61 on begin of file executed when I've run program from line about 100 ?
[09:43:07] <micges> or will be skipped or someting ?
[09:44:09] <alex_joni> it will probably be skipped
[09:44:16] <alex_joni> you need to program it in MDI
[09:44:21] <alex_joni> then use the run-from-line
[09:44:56] <alex_joni> hnmm.. I can't find a relevant commit around 11-12.08.2008
[09:49:22] <micges> so gcode before run from line selection are totally skipped? I was thinking that they executed but not sended to the motion controller...
[09:53:59] <alex_joni> micges: hmm.. they should be executed, but motion and io parts will be skipped
[11:05:31] <micges> alex_joni: in EMC2 sometimes at end of program with % sign spindle and coolants are disabled and sometimes not, for now I saw no regularity
[12:14:36] <alex_joni> anyone using 2.3.0-beta2 on hardy?
[12:15:39] <alex_joni> does the quick reference work for you?
[12:16:03] <alex_joni> (on my bastardized system there's no mozilla-firefox, only firefox)
[12:16:23] <jepler> no, broken here too
[12:16:45] <alex_joni> ok.. I'll fix it later (if someone else doesn't jump on it before that)
[12:16:54] <jepler> search the archives for xdg-open
[12:17:17] <alex_joni> jepler: we have the extras-* folder for each version
[12:17:27] <jepler> I think on hardy that's the program to use
[12:17:28] <micges> works for me
[12:17:39] <alex_joni> micges: what's the link it uses?
[12:17:54] <micges> (beta 2 , selecting from menu)
[12:18:04] <alex_joni> micges: you're not using sim :D
[12:18:18] <jepler> I'm using sim
[12:18:18] <alex_joni> seems we have /usr/bin/x-www-browser for non-sim
[12:18:22] <alex_joni> jepler: me too :D
[12:18:35] <micges> ok sorry
[12:18:45] <alex_joni> probably the sim has been copied after an older sim (hardy)
[12:19:07] <jepler> x-www-browser is probably good too
[12:19:40] <jepler> hm, the pdfs are different too
[12:19:51] <alex_joni> http://cvs.linuxcnc.org/cvs/emc2/debian/extras-Ubuntu-8.04/usr/share/applications/emc2-gcoderef.desktop.diff?r1=1.1;r2=1.2;f=h
[12:20:00] <alex_joni> but they do work here
[12:20:04] <jepler> 8.04/rtai packages use "see", 8.04/sim uses evince
[12:25:50] <jepler> I followed the instructions of SF#2046142 in BRANCH_2_3 and did not observe the buggy behavior
[12:26:19] <jepler> but like alex_joni, I couldn't find a specific fix in the history
[12:26:22] <jepler> bbl, time to go to work
[12:30:42] <micges> I'll post instructions to recreate bug asap
[12:30:44] <micges> bbl
[12:31:29] <alex_joni> micges: maybe reopen or submit a new bugreport
[12:31:36] <alex_joni> would be safest, so we don't forget about it
[12:33:44] <CIA-2> EMC: 03alex_joni 07TRUNK * 10emc2/debian/extras-sim-Ubuntu-8.04/usr/share/applications/ (3 files): fix programs to open the docs on hardy
[12:34:23] <CIA-2> EMC: 03alex_joni 07TRUNK * 10emc2/debian/extras-sim-Ubuntu-8.04/usr/share/applications/emc2-latency.desktop: add latency-test link to the menu
[12:39:37] <CIA-2> EMC: 03alex_joni 07v2_3_branch * 10emc2/debian/extras-sim-Ubuntu-8.04/usr/share/applications/ (3 files): from TRUNK, fix programs used to open docs
[12:40:03] <CIA-2> EMC: 03alex_joni 07v2_3_branch * 10emc2/debian/extras-sim-Ubuntu-8.04/usr/share/applications/emc2-latency.desktop: from TRUNK, add latency-test menu item
[12:55:00] <micges> alex_joni: ok
[12:55:45] <jepler> I tested the state of certain outputs (spindle-on, coolant-*) with programs that use %..% instead of m2. E.g., % / M3 S100 / %. In each case, the state of the output after the program finished was the same as the last one written in the program. I tested on TRUNK.
[13:00:22] <micges> I see...
[13:07:11] <micges> jepler: thanks for check it
[13:08:03] <CIA-2> EMC: 03bigjohnt 07v2_3_branch * 10emc2/docs/src/hal/basic_hal.lyx: add info on time and tmax
[13:09:25] <alex_joni> bbl
[13:10:57] <CIA-2> EMC: 03bigjohnt 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/src/hal/basic_hal.lyx: add info on time and tmax
[14:22:23] <cradek> 2046142 is a dupilcate of 2006736 and was fixed in June: http://cvs.linuxcnc.org/cvs/emc2/src/emc/task/emccanon.cc.diff?r1=1.138;r2=1.139
[14:59:35] <jepler> cradek: thanks for figuring that out
[15:00:30] <cradek> sure
[20:27:14] <Martinp23> [Server Notice] Hi folks. A quick reminder that on April 13th, at 1400 UTC, the server you are on (kubrick) will go down for a short, about 1 hour, spell of maintenance. Please reconnect to the irc.freenode.net rotation asap to avoid the split. Thanks for using freenode!
[20:54:36] <CIA-2> EMC: 03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/emc/rs274ngc/ (11 files): no need to specify the name of the current function, gcc provides it
[20:55:57] <cradek> neat
