[03:01:04] <ssi> they don't move well when you weld them together :P
[03:01:08] <Valen> welding bearings? sounds like a bad plan
[03:06:17] <tjb1> intel d525mw is now $200 on ebay....
[03:07:48] -!- herron [herron!~herron@] has joined #linuxcnc
[03:08:59] <Valen> going up in price?
[03:09:01] <Valen> :->
[03:09:03] <Valen> :-< rather
[03:09:26] <Connor> Sounds about right.. since they're not making them anymore..
[03:09:40] <Valen> has anybody tried the 3rd party atom boards?
[03:10:40] <jdh> not me, I was scared of them.
[03:13:19] <jdh> http://www.orbitmicro.com/global/boxd525mw-p-16817.html?ref=base&gclid=CJKXsIuI4LcCFVRk7AodzGAAEw

[03:14:18] <jdh> 115 on amazon
[03:15:46] <jdh> I want to cut 14 1.25" holes in 0.25" 6061. I tried a hole saw in my G0704, but the motor kept bogging down (using the quill)
[03:18:34] -!- KimK__2 has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[03:20:07] <PetefromTn> Why don't you just mill them?
[03:20:08] <tjb1> jdh: legit website?
[03:20:32] <jdh> tjb1: no clue. The amazon one looks good though. http://www.amazon.com/BLKD525MW-Intel-D525MW-Desktop-Motherboard/dp/B005ZNPDWC/ref=pd_sim_sbs_e_2
[03:20:51] <jdh> Pete: I could, but that's more painful to set up.
[03:20:55] <tjb1> jdh: thanks, might grab another to have before they are all gone
[03:21:13] <jdh> the .25" aluminum is really 2" square tubing, 0.25" wall thickness
[03:21:40] <jdh> I need through holes through the tubing and lining them up might suck.
[03:21:58] <PetefromTn> How is that more painful to setup?
[03:22:16] <PetefromTn> Seems like a three flute slam dunk to me LOL
[03:22:54] <jdh> I can mark the other side with the pilot bit from the hole saw through the first side.
[03:23:29] <PetefromTn> I PRESUME the holes need not be pretty then ..
[03:23:58] <jdh> not really, there is a piece of 1.25" tubing going through them and they will be tig'ed to the square tubing

[03:24:54] <jdh> I'm kind of surprised the motor did that. I wasn't using much force on the quill

[03:25:41] <PetefromTn> What's the HP?
[03:25:55] <jdh> depends on who you ask. 1 chinese HP
[03:26:02] <jdh> but, I think it's a 600 watt motor
[03:27:23] <PetefromTn> A 1.25 inch hole saw can easily stop my drill and try to break my wrist lol
[03:28:25] <Connor> Try using a large diameter hole saw in 3/4" MDF.. :)
[03:28:35] <Connor> If you don't know the tricks.. you'll burn it up.
[03:28:40] <jdh> Connor: ever stalled your stock motor?
[03:28:56] -!- toastyde1th has quit [Ping timeout: 252 seconds]
[03:29:09] <Connor> Not milling... I did when using it as a lathe.. and shortly after is when it burned up.
[03:29:26] <jdh> guess I need to do the belt thing
[03:29:35] <Connor> but I think it burned up because I got some swarf in the motor.. because it was horizontal.
[03:29:37] -!- Spida has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
[03:29:44] <Connor> You burn yours up ?
[03:29:51] -!- Spida [Spida!~timo@ns1.spinnennetz.org] has joined #linuxcnc
[03:29:56] <jdh> no, but it doesn't seem to have any torque.
[03:30:12] <PetefromTn> Was drilling a 2.5 inch hole in some 16 gauge steel sheet today and almost jacked up my wrist.
[03:30:14] <Connor> you check the torque limit pot on the speed controller.
[03:30:26] <jdh> I re-wateched Hoss' video of cutting stainless with a .5" end mill. I don't think mine could do anything like that.
[03:30:30] <jdh> no.
[03:31:14] -!- BJfreeman has quit [Quit: had a good time]
[03:31:25] -!- oeon has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
[03:31:33] <jdh> if you tweak the torque pot, aren't you more likely to fry it?
[03:32:25] <Connor> BTW, the trick using a whole saw in MDF, start the whole to mark the outside edge.. then using something like a forstner bit drill a hole on the inside edge of hole.. this lets the mdf swarf esacpe and not burn up your whole saw. :)
[03:32:34] <Connor> Only if you stall it.
[03:33:18] <PetefromTn> Hell if you've got a forstner bit what the hell do you need the hole saw for LOL
[03:33:35] <Connor> I've stalled my treadmill motor a few times trying to tap.. (with a hand tap)
[03:33:48] <Connor> PetefromTn: Don't have one that 3" big ?
[03:34:08] <Connor> Also, not as messy..
[03:34:31] <PetefromTn> Yeah so is the hole
[03:35:31] <PetefromTn> Damn it was hot here today....
[03:35:42] <Connor> and VERY humid.. :(
[03:36:05] <jdh> 94F and 90% humidity here
[03:36:15] <Connor> I think I'm going to have to buy a wall AC unit for my shop.. I have one.. but.. it's WAY to large for my shop..
[03:36:17] <PetefromTn> It was even warm in the shop and it usually stays pretty comfy in there
[03:36:24] <Connor> plus, I want one with heat.
[03:36:40] <Connor> PetefromTn: You keep yours too hot for me. :)
[03:36:48] <jdh> I got a 2ton window unit for my garage. It was nice today.
[03:36:50] <Connor> I like my shop around 68
[03:37:05] <PetefromTn> You need one of these portable AC units like I got while I try to get my house AC fixed.
[03:37:12] <Connor> but, I have issues regulating my temperature.
[03:37:13] <PetefromTn> It kicks ass
[03:38:00] <Connor> this one I have is like 5 or 6 years old now.. and never been out of the box..
[03:38:20] <PetefromTn> .what size is it?
[03:38:23] <Connor> I think I may try and sell it on Craigs list.. and use the $$$ for smaller one.
[03:38:29] <Connor> Let me look.. been a while.
[03:39:18] <Connor> 12,000 btu. 120v 15amp
[03:39:57] <PetefromTn> Hmm I got an 7 or 8 k one upstairs that works great.
[03:40:39] <jdh> I have a 7k one for post-hurricane. Cheap, no electronics and runs off my generator.
[03:41:12] <PetefromTn> You in Fla?
[03:41:19] <jdh> coastal NC
[03:41:23] <Connor> The room is 11.5 x 7.
[03:41:41] <jdh> get on I-40 East. Turn left right before you hit the water.
[03:41:52] <PetefromTn> Lol
[03:41:53] <Connor> so, around 80 square feet.
[03:42:10] <PetefromTn> Like a closet LOL
[03:42:11] <jdh> you don't need much for that
[03:42:25] <Connor> no. 5 ot 6k would be more than enough.
[03:42:29] <jdh> cheapest thing you can find would probablyi work fine
[03:42:42] <Connor> I have a smaller one.. but.. it stopped working.. I think it might be out of coolant..
[03:42:57] <PetefromTn> This one would freeze you out LOL
[03:42:59] <jdh> not worth fixing
[03:43:06] <Connor> jdh: I want one with built in heat..
[03:43:17] <jdh> oh, those are pricey.
[03:43:19] <PetefromTn> It does have a remote control here somewhere
[03:43:39] <jdh> there have been a few days I wanted heat, but not many.
[03:43:47] <PetefromTn> No heat tho
[03:44:11] <Connor> My smaller one does too.. and.. I'm not sure it DOESN'T work.. I was using it help supplement my sun room which is 12 x 22
[03:44:45] <PetefromTn> Like I said they make these portable units with AC and heat and they are pretty sweet.
[03:45:44] <PetefromTn> Also don't have this big box sticking out the side of your house.
[03:46:20] <Connor> Yea. but those take up floor space. :(
[03:46:34] <Connor> which is HUGE premium in my shop.
[03:46:36] <PetefromTn> Hang it on the wall
[03:47:14] <Connor> I don't think I'm going to find a small AC with heat.. looks like most of those are much bigger.

[13:39:20] <archivist_herron> hey I am working at a windows company today!
[13:39:22] <skunkworks> This is in reference to windows '8'

[13:41:17] <Valen> win8 is worse than vista
[13:41:23] <Jymmm> Valen: Really?
[13:41:29] <archivist_herron> and ME
[13:41:34] <Valen> vista they tried to add new stuff and do fancy things, and sucked at it
[13:41:35] <archivist_herron> combined
[13:41:45] <Jymmm> Eh, ME don't count. That was just fluff.
[13:41:52] <Valen> win8 they took something that worked, and took out working stuff
[13:42:00] <Valen> and added crap in its place

[13:42:23] <archivist_herron> added the worst interface they could think of
[13:42:30] <Jymmm> Heh, I was just talking about that with someone actually.
[13:42:35] <ssi> they run a one on, one off release schedule
[13:42:47] <Valen> they are doing 8.1 soon
[13:42:55] <Jymmm> Thus why I dont' run M$ on bare metal
[13:42:55] <Valen> i hear the start button is making a comeback
[13:43:01] <ssi> 3.1 was good, 95 was crap. 98 was good, me was crap. XP was good, vista was crap. 7 was good, 8 was crap
[13:43:11] <Valen> 2000 was good
[13:43:19] <ssi> yea but that's an NT product
[13:43:19] <Valen> 2000 and xp were both good...
[13:43:21] <Jymmm> ssi: lol, I never realized that
[13:43:21] <ssi> different line :)
[13:43:22] <Valen> yeah
[13:43:25] <archivist_herron> I still have a 2k box
[13:43:34] <ssi> they have to make a crap os every other time so that you're HAPPY to switch to their next os
[13:43:45] <Jymmm> NT 351 and 4.0 were good.
[13:43:52] <Valen> lol, I think the problem is they went IPADS!!!!OMG
[13:44:00] <Valen> so they tried to make an OS for ipad
[13:44:03] <jdh> I still have DOS, w98, nt4, w2k boxes
[13:44:07] <Valen> which in it self is fine
[13:44:24] <ssi> I got off windows back in 98
[13:44:30] <Valen> but when I want to run 16 different spreadsheets and some bigass cad package its not much chop
[13:44:36] <ssi> I ran 98 beta in `97, and then switched completely to linux :P

[13:45:18] <Jymmm> ssi: ESX from VMWARE?
[13:45:40] <ssi> yeah
[13:45:45] <ssi> esxi technically
[13:45:48] <ssi> the management client is windows only
[13:45:53] * Valen just uses the missus "gaming machine" for any of that stuff ;->

[13:46:00] <ssi> I have an esxi server in a datacenter
[13:46:09] <ssi> yeah that fucking thing heheh
[13:46:15] <Valen> I gave up on vmware when kvm got into its stride ;->

[13:46:25] <ssi> but it's a lot of work to start over :)
[13:46:26] <ssi> and downtime
[13:46:39] <Valen> have 2 machines?
[13:46:47] <Jymmm> ssi: and the $5000+ to move it all over to
[13:46:49] <Valen> I mean a cluster setup
[13:46:54] <Jymmm> machine^
[13:47:50] <Valen> I cheated for my migration, fire up the new machine, shut down the guest, boot ubuntu livecd on the new guest instance and the old one, the DD | NC the image over ;->
[13:47:58] <ssi> I can't afford the hosting for two machines
[13:48:08] <ssi> hell I can't really afford the hosting for one machine
[13:48:15] <ssi> it doesn't pay me back enough to justify its existence
[13:48:18] <ssi> but it's massively underutilized
[13:48:23] <Valen> I have 2x 1RU's for clients VM's
[13:48:29] <Jymmm> ssi: heh
[13:48:36] <ssi> mine's a 2u, and it's a whitebox build
[13:48:53] <Valen> Dell R210 II's nice and quiet and cheapish
[13:48:55] <Jymmm> ssi: Not your case, but check out the last image here... http://alpinelinux.org/downloads
[13:48:55] <ssi> single i7 consumer proc, 16g ram, 8x2TB on an adaptec raid6
[13:49:07] <archivist_herron> mention of cluster reminds me of....add lustre to your cluster with knacker lacquer
[13:49:11] <Jymmm> ssi: It's xen on a lightweight distro
[13:49:18] <ssi> nice
[13:49:33] <Valen> I am wondering about making a solid block of a server, just buttloads of 1.5Ghz quad core arms, with 2gb ram and 30gb fast flash
[13:49:34] <ssi> we use kvm at work for our "private cloud"
[13:49:54] <ssi> but I don't manage the infrastructure side of it
[13:49:59] <Valen> probably pack a few thousand machines into each RU
[13:50:09] <Jymmm> ssi: I've been trying to work on a 'virtualized desktop', Like ESXi for desktop if you will.
[13:50:14] <ssi> Valen: that's the opposite of how things are done these days :P
[13:50:18] <Valen> i know
[13:50:22] <Valen> but its interesting isnt it
[13:50:22] <ssi> and there's reasons for that
[13:50:33] <Valen> there are, but there's also reasons not to
[13:50:36] <ssi> you have significant overhead in things like power distribution, networking, etc
[13:50:53] -!- skorasaurus has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
[13:50:58] <Jymmm> ssi: bandwidth is cheap in a DC compared to power.
[13:51:00] <Valen> yes and no, those things have also become drastically cheaper
[13:51:06] <ssi> Jymmm: yes it is
[13:51:11] <ssi> but I don't mean networking
[13:51:14] <ssi> er
[13:51:15] <Jymmm> =)
[13:51:16] <Valen> I think he means having a thousand port switch might be kinda spendy
[13:51:18] <ssi> I dont' mean bandwidth
[13:51:25] <ssi> I mean cabling, phys, switches
[13:51:30] <Jymmm> ah
[13:51:30] <ssi> PLANNING
[13:51:34] <Valen> Mine was going to be all solid state
[13:51:41] <Valen> switches on board
[13:51:52] <Jymmm> Eh, do what akami does =)
[13:51:52] <ssi> nice thought, but without PHYs, you have MII to MII comms
[13:51:56] <ssi> and those are wide
[13:52:20] <ssi> it's far more practical to just have one big honkin machine, and virtualize
[13:52:24] <ssi> then you have virtual networking
[13:52:26] <ssi> single point power
[13:52:38] <ssi> less hardware infrastructure needs
[13:52:38] <Jymmm> SPOF too =)
[13:52:48] <ssi> sure, but you design around that
[13:52:58] <ssi> you have the same spof if you have a thousand arm cores in one box
[13:53:01] <Jymmm> two $7000 machines =)
[13:53:14] <Valen> you seem to be thinking that there is all this stuff hanging around to do the support
[13:53:32] <Valen> the idea is you get 30 "sheets" of PCB made, totally self contained
[13:53:45] <ssi> yeah I realize that
[13:53:49] <Valen> stack them and power them
[13:53:53] <ssi> but even the networking on that board is inconvenient
[13:54:03] <ssi> I've been working on similar stuff
[13:54:10] <ssi> sheets of pcb that hold dozens of bitcoin mining asics :P
[13:54:15] <ssi> it's a smaller problem to solve
[13:54:17] <ssi> and still a lot of work
[13:54:38] <ssi> there we're just talking about routing SPI around to everyone, but still comms is a hassle
[13:54:41] <Valen> I was thinking of putting phys in, because you could have a run of up to a meter anyway
[13:54:42] <ssi> power distribution is a hassle
[13:54:59] <Valen> those asic's also run stupid hot and use assloads of power too
[13:54:59] <ssi> phys would be a good idea, because you don't want to run MII long distances
[13:55:03] <ssi> yes they do
[13:55:21] <Valen> these arms TDP is usually more like half a watt
[13:55:22] <Jymmm> ssi: ASIC, talk about bitching about power.... you'll need like 80A if you fill a rack, plus the cooling
[13:55:34] <ssi> I'm aware :)
[13:55:48] <ssi> single chip wants 6A or so Vdd
[13:55:55] <Jymmm> OUCH
[13:55:55] <ssi> ~5W
[13:55:56] <Valen> what vcc?
[13:55:58] <ssi> 0.9
[13:56:07] <Valen> thats not too terrible really
[13:56:21] <ssi> no it's really not bad for what it is
[13:56:27] <ssi> but it means fat switchers
[13:56:30] <ssi> and a switcher per few chips
[13:56:35] <ssi> big power planes
[13:56:38] <Valen> I was looking at some of the coinminer rigs they have heatsinks that look more appropreate on high end audio gear
[13:56:46] <ssi> yep
[13:56:58] <Valen> I was thinking by Z stacking I could just feed the power vertically
[13:57:12] <Valen> but some nice big blower fans in to cool the whole thing
[13:57:16] <ssi> sure
[13:57:16] <Valen> turbine style
[13:57:21] <ssi> it's absolutely feasible
[13:57:24] <ssi> I just don't think it's worth doing
[13:57:29] <Jymmm> Valen: forget that... liquid cooling
[13:57:43] <ssi> I think for less money than it'd cost you to build this thing, you could buy a single server from dell that'll virtualize out to the same width and more power
[13:57:48] <ssi> more computational power
[13:57:56] <Valen> I don't think you would tbh
[13:58:04] <ssi> arm SoCs aren't as powerful as they sound :)
[13:58:09] <Valen> The way I look at it is for $50 or so you can get a real hardware that has about the same spec as a minimum spec linode
[13:58:14] <ssi> 1.5GHz of arm isn't the same as 1.5GHz of xeon
[13:58:22] <Valen> totally true
[13:58:23] <Jymmm> ssi: is too
[13:58:50] <Valen> but if you share 8x 3ghz xeon cores amongst 500 users, well you may well be better off with the quad core arm
[13:59:12] <Valen> its not cut and dried either way
[13:59:14] <ssi> 500 $50 arm boards is $25k
[13:59:23] <ssi> before you start adding the plant to connect them all to a network
[13:59:35] <Valen> thats a pretty hefty dell I'll grant you
[13:59:40] <ssi> you can buy a lot of virt servers for $25k
[14:01:03] <ssi> anyway, I gotta run to a meeting and talk about our configuration management for our virtual servers :D
[14:01:06] <ssi> bbiab
[14:01:12] <Valen> nighty night
[14:01:52] <Valen> quick look at dells
[14:02:22] <Valen> $25k seems to get you 4x Intel® Xeon® E7540 2.00GHz with 1Tb of ram
[14:02:50] <Valen> thats 24 cpu cores amongst our 500 theoretical users

[16:46:01] <ReadErro-> if 1 mobo dies you are SOL
[16:46:10] <ReadErro-> EMC has heavy redundancy built in
[16:46:17] <cheesepuff> and when I use hal meter to look at parport.1.pin-04-in pretty sure I should see an change when the switched is selected.
[16:46:20] <cradek> or if you have hardware encoder counters use one of those
[16:46:59] <cradek> cheesepuff: ok sounds like you need to explain more about what you have and what problem you are having

[16:57:01] <tjtr33> cheesepuff, you'll need to make a cable from the c22 to a parallel port ( or other digital io ), using the 'mach3' names as a guideline

[19:42:40] <Aero-Tec> I am not seeing any Gcode for axis roll over
[19:43:02] -!- psha has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
[19:43:11] <Aero-Tec> but there is one I thought that would let you reset 0 with gcode

[19:43:30] <Aero-Tec> is that doable?
[19:47:10] <fragalot_> should be
[19:47:39] <fragalot_> not sure about proper gcode, but on my 3D printer, I often use m92 E0 to reset the E axis

[19:51:06] <Aero-Tec> G10 L2 P1 A0
[19:51:19] <Aero-Tec> looks like that one would be the right way
[19:54:20] <Aero-Tec> G92.2 maybe
[19:54:57] <Aero-Tec> G92 looks to do more then I need
[19:55:36] <Aero-Tec> also says something about moving all the the axis offsets
[19:55:43] <Aero-Tec> not sure how that works
[19:55:54] <Tecan> rinky do
[20:00:11] <cradek> no you can't change the wrapped-rotary setting from gcode
[20:00:32] <cradek> of course you can set an offset that makes the current position become zero
[20:02:41] <Aero-Tec> some thing like this
[20:02:44] <Aero-Tec> G10 L20 P1 A[#<NumberOfDeg>-360]
[20:02:59] <Aero-Tec> I over shoot 0 by 10 deg
[20:03:24] <Aero-Tec> so that should make A axis be at 10 deg
[20:03:29] <cradek> not sure I understand your situation
[20:03:39] <Aero-Tec> so a0 will be a short trip
[20:03:50] <cradek> maybe you should be using wrapped rotary mode
[20:05:11] <Aero-Tec> was hoping to be able to use gcode to sim wrapped rotary
[20:05:13] -!- tjb1 has quit [Quit: tjb1]
[20:05:30] <cradek> why don't you want wrapped rotary?
[20:05:38] <Aero-Tec> save restarts and zero resettings and such
[20:06:07] <Aero-Tec> I think I have EMC save the setting when shutting down
[20:06:33] <Aero-Tec> as maybe I could do a restart and not loose Zero
[20:07:18] <Aero-Tec> what I am doing not is a one off
[20:07:23] <cradek> I'm not really following you
[20:07:46] <Aero-Tec> did not want to restart software for a quick and simple one off
[20:08:03] <Aero-Tec> I set the axis zero by hand
[20:08:12] <Aero-Tec> edge finder
[20:08:21] <Aero-Tec> no home switches
[20:08:47] <Aero-Tec> so no quick and simple way to home and zero things
[20:09:03] <cradek> I don't understand what any of that has with the choice of using wrapped rotary or not
[20:09:10] <cradek> has to do with
[20:10:05] <Aero-Tec> wrap is not turned on right now, so I would have to shut down and make a new INI with wrap turned on, with start EMC again
[20:10:28] <Aero-Tec> then not with
[20:11:01] <Aero-Tec> or is there a way to load new ini and not restart the program
[20:11:45] <cradek> but you could have edited the ini and restarted a hundred times by now.
[20:11:51] <Aero-Tec> is there a quick and easy way to turn wrap on?

[20:12:49] <cradek> if you move the machine to a known point (g0 g53 x0 y0 z0 a0) before you shut down, you can pretty much keep track of your position
[20:12:56] <Aero-Tec> I thought it needed a restart to turn on axis wrap
[20:12:57] <cradek> just move it to wherever you consider home
[20:13:14] <cradek> brb
[20:13:46] <Aero-Tec> that would work, but what about the backlash?
[20:14:20] <Aero-Tec> will it keep track of the back lash directions for each axis?
[20:15:40] <Aero-Tec> I think I have EMC save things when it quites
[20:15:57] <Aero-Tec> not sure if backlash is one of them

[23:26:12] <andypugh> atom1: Something is sending random messages to your system.
[23:26:37] <pfred1> no, no, can't do that!
[23:28:23] <atom1> ok i added that to the ini
[23:28:25] <atom1> now what?
[23:28:27] <pfred1> I often wonder if a jounraling filesystem is the best thing to run on an RT system
[23:28:27] <andypugh> I just googled for 8-40 ASME. The first hit was no help to me at all.
[23:28:45] <pfred1> I use EXT2 and just take the risk
[23:29:08] <pfred1> [ 2.532334] EXT4-fs (sda1): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode
[23:29:12] <atom1> i'll try running the file again
[23:29:24] <pfred1> atom1 did you set the debugging flag?
[23:29:35] <atom1> yes
[23:29:40] <pfred1> OK just checking
[23:30:29] <atom1> where does that log to?
[23:30:49] <pfred1> should log to dmesg or perhaps /var/log/syslog or messages
[23:31:03] <pfred1> just do tail -f /var/log/syslog
[23:31:09] <atom1> ok just stopped midway thru the cut and asked for a tool change
[23:31:10] <pfred1> and you can see crap pop up in real time
[23:31:30] <pfred1> it'll like scroll for you
[23:34:44] <atom1> posted new dmesg, same link

[23:36:17] <pfred1> you can copy paste pretty easily in terminals too
[23:36:49] <Roguish> Hey out there.. Can the Mesanet 7i43 be used with stepper motors
[23:37:17] <pfred1> atom1 is your parallel port disabled in your bios?
[23:37:27] <atom1> i don't think so
[23:37:34] <pfred1> atom1 [ 2029.533653] hm2_7i43.0: board at (ioaddr=0x0378, ioaddr_hi=0x0778, epp_wide ON) found
[23:37:41] <atom1> it wouldn't work at all if it were?
[23:37:50] <pfred1> ioaddr=0x0378 is the standard IO port for a parallel port
[23:38:01] <atom1> epp mode?
[23:38:06] <pfred1> any mode
[23:38:19] <atom1> lemme go check
[23:38:21] <pfred1> that is the address
[23:38:22] <atom1> back soon
[23:38:51] <atom1> i haven't reset it so it should be
[23:38:55] -!- atom1 has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[23:38:57] <pfred1> I don't know maybe there isn't a conflict
[23:39:10] <pfred1> but it sure is something I'd look at

[23:41:21] <atom1> it's enabled in EPP mode
[23:41:35] <pfred1> atom1 OK so is this board connected to the standard parallel port throug ha cable?
[23:41:43] <atom1> yes
[23:41:46] <pfred1> OK you'
[23:41:48] <atom1> i swapped cables too
[23:41:51] <pfred1> OK you're OK then
[23:42:09] <pfred1> I thought it was maybe an internal board trying to sit on the same IO
[23:42:29] <atom1> no, bare bones atom D525
[23:42:37] <atom1> nothing on the USB either
[23:42:49] <pfred1> PS/2?
[23:42:56] <atom1> kbd and mouse
[23:43:06] <pfred1> well they're round jacks right?
[23:43:11] <atom1> yes

[23:43:26] <pfred1> PS/2 is actually higher performance than USB for keyboards and mice
[23:43:37] <pfred1> no polling

[23:45:51] <atom1> ok, mdi i just told it to move to x0 y0 and it didn't make it all the way
[23:46:02] <atom1> stopped about .2 from the destination
[23:46:16] <pfred1> are you tailing syslog with the debugging flaf set?
[23:46:19] <pfred1> flag even
[23:46:22] <atom1> soon after that the axis jumped a bit
[23:46:36] <atom1> it's not open atm
[23:46:43] <atom1> after rebooting
[23:46:53] <pfred1> well how are you supposed to spot events if you're not looing for them?
[23:46:59] <pfred1> looking even
[23:47:24] <pfred1> something kooky is going on and you have to catch it in the act
[23:47:35] <atom1> tis on now
[23:48:17] <pfred1> if this doesn't work you may have to build LinuxCNC with debugging symbols or something esoteric like that
[23:49:32] <pfred1> which is only fun to a limited segment of the population
[23:49:45] <atom1> not this segment
[23:49:54] <pfred1> yeah I'm not very keen on it myself
[23:50:05] <pfred1> but sometimes we have to go these places
[23:50:35] <pfred1> beats the alternative shich is getting the mushroom treatment
[23:50:53] <pfred1> you know be kept in the dark and fed crap

[23:58:39] <PCW> when it stops can you read some HAL pins?
[23:59:03] <atom1> well it just locked up the whole system there for a bit
[23:59:22] <atom1> i had to close lcnc with the keyboard commands
[23:59:22] <pfred1> supposedly an app called screen can help there
