Mach and Galil still flakey
« on: August 25, 2008, 01:34:34 PM »
From the post below a week ago, I thought I found my problem. I dont think now I have. I start Mach, it sees the Galil and as soon as I try a move, it gives me a "#4 operand error" message. Usually now, none of my motors will move. They are disabled and the DRO's dont even change. I can cold boot the computer, start Galil's Smart Terminal, and tune the motors, drive them hard all over the place and I get NO errors of any kind. As soon as I start Mach again, I get the error and no movement. I can shut down Mach, and the same error still shows in Smart Terminal. I have to do a cold shut down to get Smart Terminal to move the motors again. It appears Mach is still telling the Galil card to do something it doesnt like.
I can do a trace in Smart terminal, and it hasn't told me anything.
