s this what I should see after the time2.comp install?


No, you have not cut and pasted the whole file as I said

The first line is the same as you posted, comp is looking for the component name which is in the first line of the full file

same thing,..Screen 4 shows what I get when trying to install the time2.comp

screen 5 shows the screen after I command : sudo apt-get install linuxcnc-dev

is this normal?

so what do you think the issue is, do I need to re install linuxcnc?

do I have to download the linuxcnc-dev? or is already in the 2.5.X install?

I also attached the new file i used from your post.

sudo apt-get install build-essential

if you didn't have linuxcnc-dev you probably did not have a compiler either

Going to bed now, check tomorrow

thanks for all the help so far, appreciated

is there a terminal command to check what version you have?

does it have anything to do with this screen on the Ubuntu software update page?

when looking at the package manager it appears that it is installed, when I check the box it gives the option to "re install" which tells me that It is already installed.

If you mean what version of linuxcnc you have, you don't need to, the screenshot of Synaptic clearly shows it is 2.5.3

I think things are getting confused.

You have linuxcnc-dev and thus have comp

Unless you have installed it, you will not have gcc or any of the compiling tools necessary to build the component, so next install the meta package build-essential.
sudo apt-get install build-essential

Then download the copy of time2.comp I posted at #43462 and save it in your config folder
Remove any old copies of that same component first.

Now from a terminal
cd ~/linuxcnc/configs/name-of-the-config
sudo comp --install time2.comp

You will get output like this (except the paths will be different)
root@INTEL-QUAD:/usr/src/linuxcnc-dev-rtai# comp --install time2.comp
make \
-C /lib/modules/3.5.7-rtai/build \
KBUILD_EXTRA_SYMBOLS="/usr/realtime/modules/Module.symvers /usr/src/linuxcnc-dev-rtai/rtlib/rtai-kernel/3.5.7-rtai/Module.symvers" \
SUBDIRS=`pwd` \
CC=gcc KBUILD_VERBOSE=0 modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src4/linux-3.5.7'
CC [M] /tmp/tmpr3cUSO/time2.o

LD [M] /tmp/tmpr3cUSO/time2.ko
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src4/linux-3.5.7'
cp time2.ko /usr/src/linuxcnc-dev-rtai/rtlib/rtai-kernel/3.5.7-rtai/


I have just downloaded the copy from this thread and built it as per above, so there is nothing wrong with the file.

regards

ArcEye,

I tried everything as per your instructions and this is what I am doing.

*When I download your file from 43484, this is how i am doing it, 1. right click on the link save as a text document in gedit (I have enclosed that copy of the file)

*I then place that file in the config folder, in this case it is RicoReef_Glade (screens attached)

*Next I open terminal and execute the sudo apt-get install build essential (screen attached after I hit enter)

*Here is where the problem starts, once again in terminal I put the command in (cd ~/linuxcnc/configs/RicoReef_Glade)it says that it is not found. (screen attached)

*And for the sake of trouble shooting I exacuted the (sudo comp --install time2.comp) to see if it works (screen attached) with the same results.

once again

cd ~/linuxcnc/configs/RicoReef_Glade

needs a space between the cd and the ~/linuxcnc/configs/RicoReef_Glade

(there's no space in the screenshot)

The timer2.comp file you posted compiles fine

Heres what I get on my (very different) setup:

pcw@pcw-G41M-Combo:~/linuxcnc/configs$ comp --install time2.comp
Compiling realtime time2.c
<command-line>:0:0: warning: "_FORTIFY_SOURCE" redefined [enabled by default]
<built-in>:0:0: note: this is the location of the previous definition
Linking time2.so
cp time2.so /home/pcw/linuxcnc-dev/rtlib/rt-preempt/

Notice that I dont happen to need the sudo since my linuxcnc installation is a
Run-In-Place configuration
