#emc-devel | Logs for 2010-04-04

[00:03:02] <mozmck2> here's some of the debug stuff toward the end. http://www.pastebin.ca/1856195
[00:03:43] <mozmck2> turning on all debug messages for lyx puts out tons of junk, so it's hard to find what is really the problem
[00:04:18] <JT-Hardinge> it may be an issue with different versions of lyx
[00:04:37] <JT-Hardinge> or LaTex
[00:05:14] <JT-Hardinge> If I had a spare computer I'd give it a whirl to see what I could come up with
[00:06:11] <mozmck2> I'll mess with it some more and see if I can find anything. I may still be missing some packages I need.
[00:06:37] <JT-Hardinge> it may be a font that is not in 10.04 that was in older versions
[00:07:39] <JT-Hardinge> ok, dinner time her
[00:07:48] <JT-Hardinge> here
[00:28:08] <cradek> SWPadnos: is there an easy way to get about 5A of clean regulated 12v power in a car?
[00:32:11] <mozmck2> exactly 12V I guess?
[00:32:37] <cradek> yeah, I need it pretty well regulated
[00:32:38] <mozmck2> I found the problem with docs not building, I needed texlive-fonts-recommended.
[00:32:53] <cradek> it has recommended right in the name! no wonder.
[00:33:08] <mozmck2> :)
[00:34:53] <mozmck2> still can't get emc to run. I rebuilt rtai using the standard ./configure and make and it's no better.
[00:36:04] <cradek> what's it do?
[00:37:05] <mozmck2> gives these kind of errors: http://www.pastebin.ca/1856101
[00:44:09] <cradek> http://groups.google.com/group/comedi_list/browse_thread/thread/6ffa4abe0ba558db/b508eb984a2e6478?#b508eb984a2e6478
[00:45:05] <cradek> in summary: try without CONFIG_MODVERSIONS
[00:46:26] <mozmck2> ok. I mentioned that to alex_joni and he said that was no longer neccesary.
[00:46:51] <cradek> I only know what google tells me - I don't know anything about it
[00:47:36] <mozmck2> me neither, but that looks like it could do it.
[03:49:26] <SWPadnos> cradek, no, not really (12V/5A auto supply)
[03:50:04] <SWPadnos> there are regulators you could get that would do it - either linear with a big heatsink or switching without (but more components)
[03:51:39] <SWPadnos> then there's the NBPSU100CH, from here: http://www.powerstream.com/ADC-p006.htm
[03:51:53] <SWPadnos> and probably others that are less expensive
[04:27:45] <cradek> thanks
[04:29:26] <SWPadnos> planning to run a computer?
[04:34:27] <cradek> yeah, I have a "pico psu" but it needs regulated 12v.
[04:34:50] <cradek> they make a car-capable one, but that's unfortunately not the one I have.
[04:35:05] <SWPadnos> there are WI models, that take a Wide Input voltage
[04:35:10] <SWPadnos> up to 25 or 36 volts
[04:35:20] <SWPadnos> ah
[04:35:56] <cradek> maybe I'll plug a wall wart into an inverter for now, and maybe replace it with one of those if everything else works out.
[04:35:57] <SWPadnos> you'd be better off getting one that's WI than getting a separate DC-DC converter, or doing anything silly like an inverter and an AC supply
[04:36:06] <cradek> right
[04:36:55] <SWPadnos> yep: http://www.mini-box.com/picoPSU-60-WI
[04:36:59] <cradek> I have a lot of driving to do in a few days - either I get it working with what I have, or I'll just have to do it later.
[04:37:13] <cradek> not life and death.
[04:37:29] <SWPadnos> ah. in that case an inverter and AC supply are the best bet
[04:37:43] <SWPadnos> you could even use a standard ATX supply, unless you need the small size
[04:38:03] <SWPadnos> what's the computer - you may not need 5A
[04:38:29] <cradek> yeah I should measure it. I bet it's pretty low power. CF, no disk.
[04:38:50] <SWPadnos> the Atom330 with 3GB and a 32GB SSD was 26W under load
[04:38:56] <SWPadnos> err, 2GB
[04:39:40] <SWPadnos> that was at the wall, powered from an AC power supply
[04:40:16] <cradek> wow, that's low.
[04:40:22] <SWPadnos> yep
[04:40:43] <SWPadnos> I don't remember if that test was with the gigE switch inside or not
[16:14:49] <Martinp23> [Global Notice] We're pleased to announce the launch of the Groups Advisory Board, which will give approved groups a greater say in the direction that freenode and certain other PDPC projects take in the future. Read all about it at http://bit.ly/ceCbIA and encourage your group contact(s) to join! Thanks for using freenode and have a great day!
