[01:17:49] <jepler> ugh, what's going on here? http://emergent.unpy.net/index.cgi-files/sandbox/wtf-pluto.png
[01:19:11] <jepler> (this is a machine I thought didn't work with pluto at all, but this time around it thinks it communicates but the communication is erratic to say the least)
[01:24:41] <cradek> but pos-cmd is doing it too?
[01:24:59] <jepler> after ferror, emc copies fb to cmd
[01:25:12] <cradek> oh, right
[04:07:31] <SWPadnos> jepler, what's the scale in that plot?
[04:07:44] <SWPadnos> units I mean - I can see the 20m/div
[07:39:25] <micges_emc> jepler: this is happening only on one of six emc2 machines here:
[07:39:25] <micges_emc> python: tnl/t_draw.c:203: bind_inputs: Assertion `inputs[i]->BufferObj->Pointer' failed.
[07:39:25] <micges_emc> ./emc: line 637: 32520 Aborted $EMCDISPLAY -ini "$INIFILE" $EMCDISPLAYARGS $EXTRA_ARGS
[07:39:25] <micges_emc> Shutting down and cleaning up EMC2...
[07:53:52] <micges_emc> jepler: question is what module is tnl ?
[08:08:12] <alex_joni> micges: tnl is usually transform and lightning in 3D language
[08:13:57] <alex_joni> micges: http://www.mail-archive.com/gmsh@geuz.org/msg00912.html
[08:15:52] <alex_joni> micges: http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20043
[08:16:45] <micges> alex_joni: thanks
[08:17:13] <alex_joni> sounds like a mesa bug
[08:17:26] <alex_joni> maybe you can try a different graphics driver
[08:18:03] <micges> I'll try
[08:26:46] <micges> alex_joni: displayconfig-gtk doesn't change my graphic driver
[09:16:09] <micges> about yesterday's hostmot stepgen negative scale bug: machine is loosing steps at high speeds (7000mm/min)
[09:16:52] <micges> and after longer emc running it randomly swap axis direction while jogging at high speed
[09:28:11] <micges> ups, only second issue is going, machine is not loosing steps
[09:40:01] <micges> bbl
[12:06:26] <CIA-67> EMC: 03bigjohnt 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/hal/components/thc.comp: add a bit more
[12:34:30] <jepler> I came up with similar things to alex_joni when I googled micges's error
[15:41:35] <alSMT> Tkemc.tcl change suggestion ( line 2662 $programfiletext see $activeLine.0 "To 2662 $programfiletext yview $activeLine.0 this keeps the activeLine.0 at the top not the bottom so you can see the next line to be acted on
[15:42:26] <alSMT> I am testing it seems to work like a champ
[16:15:15] <jepler> be careful -- tkemc needs a maintainer, and anybody proposing improvements to it sounds like a good target
[16:55:17] <alSMT> jepler: the change is a small one, but it makes it a big help in how you can look ahead in the program as you run it
[17:07:12] <BJT-Work> sounds like a maintainer to me :)
[17:34:29] <CIA-67> EMC: 03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/hal/utils/ (meter.c scope.c scope_horiz.c scope_trig.c scope_vert.c): translation patch from micges
[17:41:44] <BJT-Work> jepler: did you know that lyx-code makes a vertical blue line in the HTML's?
[17:42:29] <jepler> yeah that's part of the page style
[17:44:33] <BJT-Work> IMHO the pdf's look better without it
[17:46:06] <jepler> pre { margin-left: 4ex; auto; color: black; padding: 1ex; border-left: 2px solid #8080c0; }
[17:46:17] <jepler> ^^^ the style comes from this line in l2h.xsl
[17:47:08] <BJT-Work> ok, thanks
[17:55:21] <micges> jepler: what about translations in 2.3 branch of these files?
[17:56:40] <jepler> micges: you sent bad (non "-u") diffs to the mailing list, I can't apply them
[17:58:00] <jepler> put it in your cvsrc so you don't have to remember to specify it each time: http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?CVS#Setting_Your_CVS_Preferences_With_the_cvsrc_File
[17:58:55] <micges> thanks
[18:09:59] <micges> jepler: I mean allowing to translate these hal tools also in 2.3 branch
[18:10:25] <micges> now adding headers and apply _ function doesn't work in 2.3
[18:11:12] <jepler> micges: oh -- no, it won't be added to 2.3.
[18:11:26] <jepler> the changez required were too extensive
[18:11:29] <jepler> changes
[18:12:06] <micges> ok I see
[19:00:41] <micges> bbl
