Hi all — just a general question about this file. I am troubleshooting a new unit that uses the Smoothieboard 5X. So far I am very impressed at the capabilities of this board, and I am thrilled with the possibilities.
One thing I do not understand is the generation of the config-override file. I understand that this is not a user-editable file, and it is clear that the M501 command reads from this file to get EEPROM settings. My question is this — often this file seems to populate with 'legacy' settings. I will edit my config file and then reboot the board, only to have override config contain settings from 1-2 changes ago. In one instance I found it had given itself a steps/mm setting for one of the motors that I couldn't find anywhere in the config file. Where do these values populate from?
My solution so far has been to delete config-override and reboot the board (sometimes more than once) but this can't be the proper way to get currrent settings into the file. Advice?
