>- the Buster-based 64bit version with LinuxCNC 2.8.2 here

But that's the one that just says "this board requires newer software" and won't boot with the current rev of RPI 4 board.
 
 

What version of Raspberry do you have?
What are the answers to these terminal commands?

cat /sys/firmware/devicetree/base/model

cat /proc/cpuinfo

A new ready-made image is available, with the Buster-based 64-bit version of LinuxCNC 2.8.4, tested with Rasperry Pi 4B (2GB and 4GB) and Pi400

linuxcnc_2.8.4_buster_arm64_rt.zip
 


It doesn't work on Raspberry Pi3B+

I installed it, and it seems to work, but I need to install the linux headers. When attempting that for this image with:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
the install fails, it cannot locate the package.
Any idea what this can be?

In fact I have not installed this file... 

The files are here:
github.com/kdoren/linux/releases
and the installation procedure is as follows:
cd /tmp
wget https://github.com/kdoren/linux/releases/download/rpi_5.15.65-rt49/linux-headers-5.15.65-rt49-v8+_5.15.65-1_arm64.deb
sudo apt install ./linux-headers-5.15.65-rt49-v8+_5.15.65-1_arm64.deb

OK I'm seeing the problem with the "64bit version based on Bullseye with LinuxCNC 2.9.0pre" screen going "no signal" was not what I thought.

That, and this linuxcnc_2.8.4_buster_arm64_rt.zip, on another monitor shows up, but the sync is all wrong, the screen is diagonally skewed.

So neither of these monitors like the RPI4 HDMI in whatever video mode it tries to switch to.

Is there a way to remedy other than randomly buying monitors until one works?

I would suggest you check the operation of the HDMI cable in addition to the monitor.
Try using a cable that is not very long.

Instead, to quickly check the operation of LinuxCNC using another computer, there are at least 2 ways.

The first is to use a remote desktop like VNCViewer
(www.realvnc.com/en/connect/download/viewer/)

The other is to use an SSH terminal emulator with X-Windows like MobaXterm
(mobaxterm.mobatek.net/)

In any case, using the raspi-config terminal command you can select the most appropriate resolution for your monitors.

Thanks, that got me one step further in my etherlabmaster installation. Now im stuck in with the following:

Any clue how to resolve this?

Look in the makefile for -march=armv8.5-a and try to figure out where it came from?
Possibly a confused autoconfigure?

Maybe try arm64?

Seems like the issue is no longer about installing linuxcnc but ethercat.
building etherlabmaster is for the birds and obsolete anyway...
The sticky I did in the ethercat section also works for the pi.
forum.linuxcnc.org/ethercat/45336-etherc...-how-to-step-by-step
Try it and if you get stuck, ask in the ethercat  section

I VNC'ed in and tried to change the graphics settings, but all I can see are overscan, pixel doubling, and screen blanking.  None of them changed the monitor output.

The cheap Wal-Mart "onn" monitor displays the other RPi 4 stuff fine.   Just "no signal" on this image once it's passed the splash screen.

I have this old Motorola dock I've always used with RPis.  This time it has an image, but it's still this, weirdly horizontal slant.  It's not scrolling around or anything.   overscan, pixel doubling, and screen blanking didn't fix anything.
