#emc-devel | Logs for 2010-07-30

[15:44:04] <skunkworks> Thanks much!
[15:44:12] <SWPadnos> no problemo
[17:35:23] <seb> the buildbot is now building lucid rt debs from 2.4 and master
[17:35:43] <mozmck_work> that's great!
[17:36:28] <mozmck_work> I didn't use buildbot builds for emc2 btw, I did use update-dch-from-git though because I was building 2.4.2+git
[17:36:54] <mozmck_work> on the CD that is.
[18:50:17] <alex_joni> mozmck_work: sure thing, those are the notes I used for building hardy CDs
[18:50:30] <alex_joni> you might want to upload one for lucid (for eternity's sake)
[18:50:49] <alex_joni> I also put the kernel config in git(CVS)
[18:52:06] <cradek> if you want to save anything for posterity, I suggest infrastructure.git/livecd
[19:08:31] <mozmck_work> I have put my livecd notes for lucid in the same doc I have the kernel notes. I had planned to add them to the wiki here shortly.
[19:09:01] <mozmck_work> cradek: does infrastructure.git exist currently?
[19:09:45] <cradek> yes, it's kind of a generic place for things other than the source code that we don't want to forget
[19:10:03] <cradek> we've had an infrastructure repository since early in the cvs days
[19:10:29] <mozmck_work> ok. I didn't know about that, could have probably found helpful stuff there!
[19:10:34] <cradek> you can get an ssh checkout just like emc2.git
[19:10:43] <cradek> darn, sorry
[19:11:02] <mozmck_work> ok. I'll probably put my notes on the wiki as well since most of them are there already.
[19:11:26] <cradek> ok
[19:11:55] <cradek> the wiki is good for notes but bad for something like a collection of release-making scripts
[19:12:14] <cradek> like always, it's hard to know where to put stuff - we have lots of choices.
[19:12:38] <cradek> thanks for going to the extra work of keeping notes and making them available
[19:13:33] <micges> imo linuxcnc.org will be best place for such things
[19:14:11] <cradek> wiki, git, or www?
[19:14:27] <micges> err www :)
[19:14:39] <micges> on download page
[19:15:13] <cradek> I think he's talking about notes regarding how to build the cd. those don't belong on the download page.
[19:16:00] <mozmck_work> yeah, these notes: http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?Ubuntu10.04Notes
[19:16:30] <mozmck_work> I've filled out the livecd part more on my computer.
[19:17:03] <micges> cradek: ok, so I think installing EMC2 page on www can be
[19:17:18] <micges> (http://www.linuxcnc.org/content/view/21/4/)
[19:17:32] <mozmck_work> I should make some scripts for doing the liveCD. would save some copy and pasting.
[19:18:06] <mozmck_work> how do I make a script ask for a password on the command line and then use it for everything in the script?
[19:18:13] <cradek> micges: yes that page needs an update when mozmck is happy with the cd, which is NOT yet
[19:18:42] <cradek> mozmck_work: maybe 'sudo true' and let sudo do its normal caching trick?
[19:18:56] <jepler> mozmck_work: can all the steps be done as root? If so, 'sudo sh realscript'
[19:19:57] <mozmck_work> you mean call the script that way jepler?
[19:20:09] <mozmck_work> I guess I could do that.
[19:20:46] <mozmck_work> I think they can all be done through sudo.
[19:21:17] <jepler> (or bash instead of sh if it's a shell that uses bash constructs)
[19:21:32] <alex_joni> mozmck_work: the link I gave you was from infrastructure.git
[19:21:34] <jepler> untested, but something along these lines will restart the script in sudo if not already running as root: if [ $(id -u) -ne 0 ]; then exec sudo bash "$0" "$@"; fi
[19:22:10] <mozmck_work> alex_joni: I see. I didn't even notice when I looked at it. I'll have to 'git' it tonight.
[19:22:38] <mozmck_work> thanks jepler.

[19:50:28] <cradek> micges: thanks
[19:51:05] <micges> welcom
[19:51:06] <micges> e
[20:13:29] <micges> jepler: in 2.4 branch you don't add ~pre to VERSION, is it intended>
[20:13:30] <micges> ?
[20:15:47] <jepler> I know it's different than we did for along time. Is it causing trouble for you?
[20:15:50] <jepler> s/along/a long/
[20:16:11] <micges> no, just notice it
[21:54:50] <micges> while working on removing iotask and moving all functionality to rt I have few questions:
[21:55:54] <micges> what hal name should be taken for estop: (motion.aux.estop)?
[21:57:44] <micges> what hal names for tool pins, coolants ? (io.coolant-flood or aux.coolant-flood or motion.io.coolant-flood) ?
[21:58:10] <micges> I need comments
[22:19:13] <JT-Hardinge> micges thanks I don't have to close one eye now to keep from getting dizzy when I look a the dro tab :)
[22:19:33] <micges> hehe
[22:21:37] <micges> good night all
[22:21:43] <JT-Hardinge> good night
[23:22:09] <jepler> micges: I would prefer to see compatible names.
