I noticed that the ini file that the tool generates creates a line:
HALFILE = postgui.hal
whereas it should be:
POSTGUI_HALFILE = postgui.hal

Just sayin'

Good advice, AgentWD40 - I wasted a day trying four different versions of Unix on this site: gnipsel.com/linuxcnc/uspace/index.html

Either those versions of Debian fail to recognize the USB as an installation device, or I get a startup error "unable to locate suitable memory target" when finally booting Linux Mint 19.1 after a ridiculously long compilation bummer.

I finally just went to linuxcnc.org & guessed. Those are pre-compiled, and they not only worked quickly, but it fixed a grub boot loader problem that had me locked out of Windows 10 on another drive.

My advice to anyone reading this is to download and install the LinuxCNC USpace 2.7.0 Debian 9 Streatch from linuxcnc.org/downloads, and then follow the instructions for adding the repos for updating to 2.8 at buildbot.linuxcnc.org.

I just wish someone would make a road map for all of this with fewer dead ends. The majority of what I tried on the gnispel.com website - although it looks really nice - was a disaster.

I just want to say thanks for creating this tool. I used it today to setup my new 7i96 board and got the whole thing up and running in about 2 hours. I don't think I would have been able to do it in 2 days without this tool.

Thanks,
Bob
