Hello World :)

In the past I only installed and played a bit with linuxCNC. Not I like to implement it on my new CNC mill. Because of this I installed the latest version 2.9.1 on my pc, startet pncconf and now it looks different to my old linuxcnc installation regarding the Mesa tabs. 

Before I was able to get access to Mode 2 and Tab 5 / 6 etc. Now  I´m not able anymore?! Or do I miss some information ?

Attached the old world (2.8.X) and the latest (2.9.1)

Thank´s 
Jannik

Edit the hal file, the line that starts with loadrt containing something like this
sserial_port_0=0020xxxx
Probably changing the first 0 after = to 2 should do the trick, no idea what channel 7i76E uses, but no harm in trying.

Thanks for answering.

I tried this is in the .hal
OLD:
#loadrt hm2_eth board_ip="10.10.10.10" config="num_encoders=1 num_pwmgens=0 num_stepgens=5 sserial_port_0=00xxxxxx"
NEW:
loadrt hm2_eth board_ip="10.10.10.10" config="num_encoders=1 num_pwmgens=0 num_stepgens=5 sserial_port_0=20xxxxxx"

After saving I reloaded the config in pncconf but still the same. No TB5/6 options..

If there is another way around please let me know.
Or does it make sense to go with the 2.8.X version?

Finally I think I will have to some manuel adjustments to the .hal to get my setup work (withouf pncconf). Should I prefer to go on without pncconf as a newbie?

That will not change anything in PncConf, it will change the Mesa card mode, so you will have access to first 4 analog inputs, 2 MPG's, and voltage reading from the power supply connector.
Use the "show hal configuration" from the "machine" menu to find the exact pin names.

Okay, but that means from this point (manual change in the .hal) I have to go by hand without pncconf, right?t So I have try to write my own hal with the signals / nets. Reloading in pncconf will reset my handmade .hal modifications.

If you check the 'advance options' on the first page, you should be able to select 7i76 modes.
