[21:34:10] <paul_c> rtai/scripts/realtime-config
[21:35:00] <alex_joni> got myself an irc logger ;)
[21:37:33] <paul_c> realtime-config does not return as much info as rtai-config
[21:37:52] <alex_joni> but it has --prefix
[21:38:02] <alex_joni> --cflags
[21:38:33] <alex_joni> and --version...
[21:39:24] <alex_joni> but verion is coded to 0.0.0 in rtai-24.1.10 as I see it
[21:39:46] <alex_joni> s/verion/version/
[21:41:53] <alex_joni> same in 24.1.11
[21:45:22] <paul_c> For the most part, we can assume that rtai-24.1.xx is going to be found on BDI-TNG and RH7.x systems
[21:45:46] <alex_joni> that leaves out the systems with manual rtai instalation...
[21:45:58] <alex_joni> those can have either version of rtai...
[21:46:04] <alex_joni> and diff. kernels
[21:47:57] <alex_joni> yup...
[21:48:13] <alex_joni> so we need to search for [rtai,rtl,realtime]-config
[21:48:28] <alex_joni> and depending on those have rtai-24.1.x, rtai-3.0, or rtlinux
[21:49:43] <alex_joni> if you need the logger output... try logger_aj, bookmark
[21:50:16] <paul_c> pc_op logs everything from this end
[21:50:25] <alex_joni> whereto?
[21:53:16] <paul_c> /home/paul/.xchat2/logs
[21:53:27] <paul_c> on
[22:01:37] <alex_joni> :D
[22:02:35] <paul_c> I can see a problem with the configure.in
[22:04:02] <paul_c> rtai-config may not be in `rtai-config --prefix`/bin
[22:05:38] <alex_joni> yes... I am thinking of rewriting the whole RT stuff...
[22:05:50] <alex_joni> still trying to figure out a more elegant way to do it
[22:06:09] <alex_joni> logger_aj, bookmark
[22:06:09] <alex_joni> See
[22:07:11] <paul_c> an eggbot ?
[22:08:56] <alex_joni> what's an eggbot?
[22:09:30] <paul_c> A bot designed for IRC logging (and other functions)
[22:11:17] <alex_joni> well it's a bot written in perl
[22:11:21] <alex_joni> that does html, text output
[22:11:44] <paul_c> alex_joni does perl ???
[22:12:21] <alex_joni> hmm... not really
[22:12:27] <alex_joni> but can install a perl module ;)
[22:13:30] <paul_c> bummer - Had identified a bit of the emc2 puzzle that would have benefitted from perl...
[22:14:33] <paul_c> OK... Looking at configure.in, I would like to move all the RTNAME, RTPREFIX setups into on single area...
[22:15:30] <paul_c> at the moment, there are duplicates from when rtai-config is found by search, and again if it is speced on the command line
[22:15:32] <alex_joni> well.. maybe some day... I'll take the time to learn pearl
[22:15:42] <alex_joni> yes.. i know..
[22:16:12] <alex_joni> well... let's define what we really need
[22:16:16] <alex_joni> RTDIR is for sure
[22:16:43] <alex_joni> I used RTS for the found script (rtai-config or rtl-config)
[22:20:13] <paul_c> So we keep it as a replacement for RTAI_EXEC
[22:20:56] <alex_joni> it's not the same
[22:21:02] <alex_joni> RTAI_EXEC was a path prefix
[22:21:41] <paul_c> RTAI_EXEC is(was) the rtai-config and full path
[22:32:11] <alex_joni> aha.. well we cn use RTAI_EXEC...
[22:32:34] <alex_joni> but we need to differentiate the cases for rtai-24.1.x, rtai-3, rtlinux
[22:32:49] <alex_joni> because of different parameters to the scripts.
[22:36:57] <paul_c> Yes - So rather than doing it twice (once for --with-rt, and again on search), do it in one spot.
[22:38:31] <paul_c> OK.. Added a test for rtl-config.
[22:38:55] <paul_c> But broken the setting of variables
[22:39:20] <CIA-4> 03paul_c 07auto_configure_0_1 * 10emc2/configure.in: Test for rtlinux configs added - And break the settings of the variables.
[22:42:09] <paul_c> Going to add a list of comments about *-config
[22:42:26] <paul_c> and the values they return..
[23:09:20] <CIA-4> 03paul_c 07auto_configure_0_1 * 10emc2/configure.in: A page of comments on the expected output of the {RTS}-config scripts
[23:15:45] <paul_c> high noon sun is causing glare on my monitors - Time for lunch...
[23:18:28] <alex_joni> i was eating myself ;)
[23:39:20] <alex_joni> not really myself...
[23:39:24] <alex_joni> LOL
