I think the right path forward is work with the Debian guys to have a deb for 2.9 branch published in the debian repos.

There is work currently being done to achieve this.

Awesome news Phill. We really need a Debian 11 deb file available before then though.

Might be closer than we think. Nice! But get it hosted on Debian!

With the release of Debian 11 (Bullseye), I think there is now no need for Linuxcnc to distribute software on ISO's. Instead, I think the right path forward is work with the Debian guys to have a deb for 2.9 branch published in the debian repos. My understanding of the repos is that all of the required dependencies are then deployed when the user types

sudo apt-get install linuxcnc
Or use Synaptic to install it
 If this was done, our software could be installed (on kernel 5.10 and above) in 3 steps
1. install the preempt_rt kernel



Actually I think that it should be a single step. The kernel will come in as a dependency. 

There is (suddenly) a whole lot of activity on this as someone from the Debian side has taken an interest.

Andy, thanks very exciting news. I was not game to ask that the preempt_rt kernel was treated as a dependency!

in the mean time ... we build debs.     And on that I have just gone through this whole process to get a Dell Optiplex 960 running Deb11 and Lcnc 2.9pre deb installed.  I did builf the docs and found  a missing dependency that did not seem to have been solved from the original apt get install lists.
netcat
was missing.

Bevins, there has been changes to the deb build process so Linuxcnc can be included in the Debian repos. I found one issue which was reported and resolved. If you see some errors about permissions add -rfakeroot  to the build package command

Andy, for some reason I've noticed some commits changing the docs are not flowing through to the web site docs. it would be good if that could be done so that change is reflected in the docs.

Anyway, the amazing thing is that linuxcnc is sitting in the debian in queue for inclusion in debian 12!

IT compiles  but installs with errors and linuxcnc wont run. Fails with missing rtapi.conf.

I did build with uspace but it had a weird message saying about building with uspace for display or something weird.
