7i96 and PlasmaC Permission Denied

What is changed with PlasmaC?

OS?
LinuxCNC version?
LinuxCNC install method? (rip or normal)
Just hal file?


Nothing has changed on my machine. I have two icons on the desktop. One for the base machine config I created and one for PlasmaC config. If I click on the base machine icon, everything works. If I click on the PlasmaC icon I get the network unreachable error.

I'm using Debian 9 Stretch, 2.9 Master, Mesa 7i96.

You still have not told us the IP address you are using for your Mesa card or attached your Hal and ini files. Please tell me the IP

Can you tell us the IP address of your mesa card?

From the error, its defaulting to
192.168.1.121

Its more likely that you need it to be 10.10.10.10

I did mention to check the data that is being used from your ini file to populate the hostmot2 command. Most likely, you just need a simple edit to your config (ini or hal file) to point to the correct IP address.


Yes the Mesa card is at 192.168.1.121. I don't know how to get the ip address to change on my machine. I tried the Network Connections GUI but had no luck. I don't think changing to 10.10.10.10 will solve the problem because it works with the base config at 192.168.1.121.

The [HOSTMOT2] section for both the Base and PlasmaC are identical and look like this:
DRIVER = hm2_eth
IPADDRESS = "192.168.1.121"
BOARD = 7i96
STEPGENS = 4
ENCODERS = 1
SSERIAL_PORT = 1

I don't know what is happening here, PlasmaC 'should' have nothing to do with networking.

Can you post the HAL and INI file from the PlasmaC config directory.

I do see an issue with the following line although this is a separate issue:

loadrt [EMCMOT]EMCMOT servo_period_nsec=[EMCMOT]SERVO_PERIOD num_joints=[KINS]JOINTS

This loads the motion controller from variables in the ini file and the Configurator expects a "loadrt motmod" so it can specify two spindles. I will fix that.
In the interim, comment it out and try it like this:

loadrt [EMCMOT]EMCMOT servo_period_nsec=[EMCMOT]SERVO_PERIOD num_joints=[KINS]JOINTS num_spindles=[TRAJ]SPINDLES



Is the following line identical to the line in the working base machine?
I am not 100% sure of the " between (STEPGENS) and sserial or whether spaces are required between config items.

loadrt [HOSTMOT2](DRIVER) board_ip=[HOSTMOT2](IPADDRESS) config="num_encoders=[HOSTMOT2](ENCODERS)num_stepgens=[HOSTMOT2](STEPGENS)"sserial_port_0=[HOSTMOT2](SSERIAL_PORT)

If so, comment it out and try it like this:

loadrt hm2_eth board_ip="192.168.1.121" config="num_encoders=1 num_stepgens=4 sserial_port_0=1"

Phil is on the right track.
loadrt [HOSTMOT2](DRIVER) board_ip=[HOSTMOT2](IPADDRESS) config="num_encoders=[HOSTMOT2](ENCODERS)num_stepgens=[HOSTMOT2](STEPGENS)"sserial_port_0=[HOSTMOT2](SSERIAL_PORT)

This line is *non-conforming* to the hostmot2 manpage
but might get handled by halcmd but not parsed
correctly when using twopass.
$ man hostmot2
...
The config string can contain spaces, so it is
usually a good idea to wrap the whole thing in
double-quotes  (the  "  charac‐ ter).

The comma character (,) separates members of the
config array from each other.

For example, if your control computer has one 5i20
and one 5i23 you might load the hm2_pci driver
with a HAL command (in hal‐ cmd) something like
this:

loadrt hm2_pci config="firmware=hm2/5i20/SVST8_4.BIT num_encoders=3 num_pwmgens=3 num_stepgens=3,firmware=hm2/5i23/SVSS8_8.BIT sserial_port_0=0000 num_encoders=4"
...

The manpage is not clear (to me) when spaces
(versus commas) are allowed or required but the
double quotes ("") should probably enclose all.

Example1 for test (space,trailing ") (if using twopass):
loadrt [HOSTMOT2](DRIVER) board_ip=[HOSTMOT2](IPADDRESS) config="num_encoders=[HOSTMOT2](ENCODERS) num_stepgens=[HOSTMOT2](STEPGENS) sserial_port_0=[HOSTMOT2](SSERIAL_PORT)"

Example2 for test (comma,trailing ") (if using twopass):
loadrt [HOSTMOT2](DRIVER) board_ip=[HOSTMOT2](IPADDRESS) config="num_encoders=[HOSTMOT2](ENCODERS) num_stepgens=[HOSTMOT2](STEPGENS),sserial_port_0=[HOSTMOT2](SSERIAL_PORT)"

Note: in the above examples, all text is on one-line
regardless of any linesplits shown in this forum presentation

As mentioned upthread, putting this single loadrt line in a separate halfile
with the #NOTWOPASS magic comment is likely the simplest
method to workaround parsing issues for complex or non-conforming
loadrt lines.

Ok I am close to getting this to work. I first made this change to the hal file and the Mesa board was recognized on startup. Network error solved!

loadrt hm2_eth board_ip="192.168.1.121" config="num_encoders=1 num_stepgens=4 sserial_port_0=1"


Then I got spindle error. So I made the change in your second recomendation. Which solved the spindle error.

loadrt [EMCMOT]EMCMOT servo_period_nsec=[EMCMOT]SERVO_PERIOD num_joints=[KINS]JOINTS num_spindles=[TRAJ]SPINDLES


Now I'm getting a "Pin '4' does not exist" error in my newplasma_connects.hal. I have tried several different pin numbers and they all give the same error. I feel kinda dumb here but what is the correct naming convention for the pins on the 7i96 input pins?

That got it working but now there is a popup that gives a python error when LinuxCNC loads. If I hit the OK button LinuxCNC continues to load, but there seems to be some stuff missing. Nothing is shown below the Axis on the left of the screen. The monitor panel, button panel and control panels also are missing. I do see the Plasma Run Tab and Plasma Config Tab.

What does the popup say?

Can you try to run from a terminal then post all the terminal output form the linuxcnc command to the end.
