Linuxcnc on Debian Bookworm - a shortcut to master branch

any idea why on my fresh Bullseye install the
sudo apt install linuxcnc-uspace linuxcnc-uspace mesaflash
it keeps coming up with an error of
E: Unable to locate package linuxcnc-uspace
E: Unable to locate package linuxcnc-uspace-dev
E: Unable to locate mesaflash


 

The title says bookworm, not bullseye. The packages are not in Bullseye!
Just recapping the  branches of debian

unstable - new stuff goes here - Linuxcnc started its journey to debian in this branch 
testing (aka bookworm right now) -  where unstable packages go when they are considered safe - Where linuxcnc is now
stable (aka bullseye right now) - Linuxcnc won't end up here.
oldstable (aka buster right now)

Once the next version of Debian is released (version 12 or Bookworm) testing will become stable, unstable will become testing and stable Bullseye will become oldstable and buster gets the boot!

I have an idea that may allow reaching the bookworm packages from bullseye. I've played around with it on a Raspberry pi and had some issues but have not tried on amd64.

Its probably best that users are directed to thios page to download bookworm
www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/

Its pretty confusing to then go looking for the non-free ISO for bookworm/testing but the links to the net install cd image are there.
follow the link in the yellow block to 
unofficial images with firmware included - weekly builds
Drill down to your platform, usually amd64

Tommy's use of the live ISO is not the recommended path Debian suggests.

Yeaaaah Nooooo !
Have to change things again, for some reason "testing" is not "testing" in debian, just wasted over 2 hours chasing stuff and testing ISO's, so for now "testing" is only the link provided by Rod that contains only one single flavor and the old graphical installer, and fails to install GRUB often. So for now we can use this or revert back to changing repositories.
The "testing" i linked to with Live flavors is still version 11. I am baffled and confused and cross eyed ! :)

I don't really know what Tommy is complaining about. I think it might be possible for an impatient user to proceed without installing grub but you do get a full choice of what desktop you want. I've been sticking to the standard one but it does take a bit of getting used to. xfce will give you what you are used to with Linuxcnc.

 
If you really want to do it the hard way, select the advanced installer. 

Note that the Installer is branded debian 11 but the firmware says its not

Now its installed, I now can confirm this worked perfectly using the weekly build. Currently 
cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/no...uilds/amd64/iso-dvd/
But don't use this one, drill in and get the latest as it changes every week.
