Printing issue with repetier-firmware (master & staging) #336
Having issues with printing to a machine running repetier firmware (.81)
With master, it seems to start printing. The temps go up and then it starts moving, but there is a second or two between each command. Lots of waits in the log.
With staging it never starts printing. Lots of waits in the log.
This is running on debian on a beaglebone black.
Hm. Does it work with the exact same hardware but a different host controller? Because according to those logs the firmware in both cases really takes its time to acknowledge any command sent... It definitely shouldn't take ~5sec to reply to a

It's cool :) So my printer was actually behaving that way a while ago. I had other things going on and never really investigated it too much. Eventually, I switched to a BBB and started using repetier 0.90b and the problem went away. It sounds like the issue might have been on the repetier end.
The newest master branch of repetier is 0.91. I haven't tried that yet, but I might suggest it as the older development branch is working for me.
I haven't tried another host controller. I don't have a GUI set up yet on the BBB, so perhaps I will have to get that up and running.
I was also considering upgrading the firmware as well so I will get a few of those things updated.
I will update this ticket with anything that I can find.
Thanks for your help and suggestions.

I switched back to Repetier to see what I could get going and I just did a print successfully with octoprint staging with repetier firmware .91.
It seemed to print fine, but I get this message in the console multiple times during the print (every few seconds). Is this anything to worry about or is there some change I should make?
