 This is the Debian 10 buster system with  LINUXCNC - 2.8.2-11-g6a3d0a434. This new system has issues. I am assuming OS issues still go to Debian and CNC issues go here. Please correct me if I'm wrong.When editing the INI file scale settings, Linux CNC is broken. My CNC scale is off by 50%. Attempting to run the changes results in CNC errors. The error report shows problems with the HAL file, but that has not been changed. I reset the INI file to the default settings but CNC is still broken. I have attach the error file.

The error report shows problems with the HAL file, but that has not been changed.  

./my-mill.hal:64: setp requires 2 arguments, 4 given
It was changed, i would venture a guess that backspace was pressed while the file was opened.
Line 64 in the Hal file has to many arguments.

Thanks for removing the duplicate post.
See that line 64 has something to do with the scale. I did edit HAL a couple of days ago but it has been working until now.

I am creating a new configuration. My motor scale moves 1/2 inch when I can program it to move 1 inch. I see in the configuration settings to control revolutions. My machines use leadscrews. Which should I use to change scale in the proper direction, stepper motor revs or leadscrews if I need to double the scale?

I did get the scale set correctly, but is had to be done manually. in Stepconfig I changed leadscrew from 20 to 40 and this did set the Scale correctly but it also completely crashed CNC.

Everything looks good to this point except angular settings. Angular velocity is way off. Running 10,000° per minute move 55° in 48 seconds. Max velocities should be set to about 2100 normal operation. These are my current settings:

I have determined that the manual edit problems are caused by the Buster OS. Buster has file management issues. Opening and and saving files resulted in a strange UTF 8 format error. This combined with other Buster OS problems prompted me to dump it and reinstall stretch.

Problem solved

Thanks for reporting back.
I rarely use Buster so never noticed such issues.

Which editor were you using? I have been using Buster for a long time and have not seen these issues.
