[08:03:22] <Dave911_> Dave911_ is now known as Dave911
[09:29:54] <Dave911_> Dave911_ is now known as Dave911
[15:11:24] <cradek> that was not supposed to be part of the patch
[20:39:03] <jepler> cradek is right, the axis.py change should not be there.
[22:13:27] <CIA-5> EMC: 03cmorley 07master * rd1e483783f81 10/src/hal/user_comps/hal_input.py: add bit pins to absolute routines
[22:25:08] <CIA-5> EMC: 03cmorley 07master * rfa4a7380ad80 10/src/hal/user_comps/hal_input.py: Fix a typo in absolute bit pin routine
[22:30:56] <Dave911> I am putting EMC2 onto a compact flash card and I have been doing some testing .. turns out that I needed to install Ubuntu 10.04 and then do an Update to get rid of an early 10.04 problem that pops up when a boot is interrupted. If you have seen the "Now checking your hard drive for errors message"
[22:30:57] <Dave911> that is a symptom of the problem. I was actually able to make the problem corrupt the Compact Flash card I am using. After doing an OS Update via the update manager, and then installing RTAI and EMC2 via the script file... the problem no longer occurs.. and EMC2 and RTAI still work fine. In general I don't like doing OS updates, as they can introduce problems, but this time it was...
[22:30:59] <Dave911> ...necessary.
[22:32:41] <Dave911> I'm also going to put in the "noatime" switch into the fstab file line also as per the Wiki... I don't see any reason not to do that..??
[22:46:37] <SWPadnos_> if you interrupt the boot process while the "checking the disk for errors" message is on the screen, then you are definitely taking your hard disks life in your hands
[22:46:53] <SWPadnos_> that message is displayed while fsck is running
[22:47:27] <SWPadnos_> you should be able to cancel the disk scan by pressing "ESC", and after that it might be safe to interrupt the boot
[22:47:42] <SWPadnos_> I can't see any major difficulty with noatime
[22:47:55] <SWPadnos_> (you won't be able to tell when files were last accessed ...)
[23:26:11] <cradek> jepler: I scoped both tach signals. aside from one (the real tach?) being more noisy, I can't see any difference
[23:26:43] <cradek> I can't figure out how to get a fast enough change in velocity to really show the time delay
[23:28:06] <cradek> maybe I'll crank the accel and try to capture a short jog
[23:28:47] <cradek> I have it set at 30 now but I think it'll do 100
