you would need to compile from source to use MX21. I did that with bullseye without any dramas

Following the manual. word by word - line by line.
Section 4: 19: 
enter the following case sensitive command:
sudo apt install linux-image-rt-amd64

My client is a 32bit... is there an linux-image-rt-blabla32 ?
or is the guide only for 64bit machines (I know it mentioned 64in the start - but i would give it a shot enyway)

Yep, the guide is written with 64 bit machines in mind.

There should be RTAI kernel for 32bit, works for parallel and Mesa PCI and PCI-E cards, will not work for ethernet cards.
For that follow the easiest is to use the depreciated Wheezy ISO
linuxcnc.org/downloads/
Beware that it is not supported anymore.

Thanks for the quick reply guys, much appreciated!

I, kidde, will hereby abandon all my old 32bit laptops for future Linuxcnc projects. From now on I will only use 64bit and the:  I allways end up spending too much time in these rabitholes.. 32bit / raspb-pi4 ect ect...

In all honesty, if you are using a 64 bit PC, I highly recommend MX Linux from this guide, and not the LinuxCNC distributed ISO.  

Laptops in general are not recommended for linuxcnc though...

7i96 is nice for plasma but I personally would go with a 7i76e if you have a spindle.

I have a spindle and two 7i96'er cards :pinch:

Why would you go with the 7i76 (your preferences) over the 7i96 Rod ?

Sorry for stealing the thread snowgoer :unsure:

More IO, dedicated spindle support, MPG support (which eats into the limited IO of the 7i96). 7i96 has built in 2 amp relays but 7i76e needs external relays.

But maybe I am funny cos I use Debian 11 over MxLinux ! (There is now a very good howto for it here www.qtpyvcp.com/install/bullseye.html and it could just as easily be used for MXLinux)
