Description

The beamline front-end project still builds a monolithic kernel. It needs to use frontend.mk and the "new" build environment. It should also load dependent modules instead of linking them all together. Finally, it should be using MOOC 4.6.

History

#1 Updated by Richard Neswold almost 4 years ago

The RD CAMAC source is now in Redmine. I've created a branch in my checked out copy to work on this issue.

#2 Updated by Richard Neswold about 3 years ago

  • Subject changed from Upgrade the beamline front-ends to frontend.mk and MOOC 4.3 to Upgrade the beamline front-ends to frontend.mk and MOOC 4.6
  • Description updated (diff)

Put in the latest MOOC version.

#3 Updated by Richard Neswold about 1 year ago

Brian reported a problem with the "snooze" service where snoozing an alarm on the MESON front-end only snoozes for a short time. The alarm seems to re-enable on its own. I mention that issue here because it might be caused by a bug in the old version of MOOC I'm using. If it still happens after upgrading the front-end, I'll create a new ticket.

Beau and I did some testing with bypassing and un-bypassing F:MT3Q4. While logged into MESON, we saw these messages on the console when we changed the bypass state:

setdat : ACNET message is probably corrupted, sending node: c5c
setdat : ACNET length 25
setdat : number of settings: 0
setdat : Message header dump: 0200  0000  0b0b  0c5c  779c  193c  1500  3eaf  0044
setdat : ACNET message is probably corrupted, sending node: c5c

setdat : Message header dump: 0200  0000  0b0b  0c5c  779c  193c  1500  3a75  0044
setdat : ACNET message is probably corrupted, sending node: c5c

These messages don't appear on other MOOC front-ends I own. I think upgrading the MOOC libraries would be a first step in fixing the problem.
