[12:14:42] <ejholmgren> have any idea if those cheapo router speed controls are worth using to slow down a router that isn't variable?
[12:43:16] <daniel_br> Hello
[12:43:39] <daniel_br> anyone can help me with siggen
[12:43:58] <daniel_br> i'm trying use siggen but i can't make it work
[12:44:16] <daniel_br> when i use: loadrt siggen num_chan=1
[12:44:17] <daniel_br> emc load and i can see all pins but without "fp_period" no pulses
[12:44:56] <daniel_br> when i try: loadrt siggen num_chan=1 fp_period=1000000 emc don't load
[12:51:36] <alex_joni> daniel_br: did you add the functions to threads?
[12:52:43] <daniel_br> yes , with or without same error
[12:53:00] <daniel_br> Print file information:
[12:53:00] <alex_joni> hmm.. unfortunately I gotta run
[12:53:00] <daniel_br> HAL:11: ERROR: systemv failed, returned 1
[12:53:00] <daniel_br> HAL:11: ERROR: insmod failed, returned -1
[12:53:00] <daniel_br> Debug file information:

[12:53:01] <daniel_br> Stopping realtime threads
[12:53:05] <daniel_br> Unloading hal components
[12:53:07] <daniel_br> 16494
[12:53:09] <daniel_br> PID TTY STAT TIME COMMAND
[12:53:13] <alex_joni> ok, that means you don't have something installed
[12:53:17] <alex_joni> what does dmesg say ?
[12:54:31] <daniel_br> dmesg?
[12:54:44] <alex_joni> it's a command
[12:56:35] <alex_joni> * alex_joni needs to run for a while
[12:56:41] <alex_joni> I'll be back in a couple of hours
[12:56:49] <daniel_br> siggen: Unknown parameter `fp_period'
[12:56:51] <daniel_br> ok
[12:57:10] <alex_joni> I think the name might have changed, or the fp_period was dropped from siggen
[12:57:12] <alex_joni> let me look
[12:58:01] <alex_joni> yes, fp_period isn't there anymore
[12:58:10] <daniel_br> and?
[12:58:11] <alex_joni> you need to loadrt threads
[12:58:35] <daniel_br> i do it but dont work
[12:58:43] <alex_joni> loadrt threads name1="base" fp1=1 period1=500000
[12:58:57] <alex_joni> then loadrt siggen
[12:59:05] <alex_joni> addf siggen.0.update base
[12:59:10] <alex_joni> halcmd start
[12:59:21] <alex_joni> and the other params you probably know how to set
[12:59:32] <alex_joni> bbl..
[12:59:41] <daniel_br> ok thanks
[13:25:07] <CIA-8> 03jepler 07HEAD * 10emc2/docs/src/hal/rtcomps.lyx: fp_period has been removed from the pid and siggen components
[13:38:55] <CIA-8> 03jepler 07HEAD * 10emc2/scripts/halrun.in:
[13:38:55] <CIA-8> when using halrun, I often want to run halcmd interactively after a .hal file
[13:38:55] <CIA-8> make this possible with -I
[13:39:11] <CIA-8> 03jepler 07HEAD * 10emc2/docs/man/man1/ (halrun.1 halcmd.1): document halrun in a manpage
[23:00:14] <alex_joni> anonimasu: think I'll head to bed
