Installing LinuxCNC 2.9 on Raspberry Pi 4B with Preempt-RT kernel

To anyone looking for a low latency board computer that you can actually get your hands on, check out this thread.

forum.linuxcnc.org/18-computer/48113-odr...ent-for-raspberry-pi

We've managed to get sub-20 microsecond latency under realistic test conditions.

We are hoping to migrate this to the Armbian build system which I've been playing with for a while. I've missed something with the preempt_rt but with Alan's help, I think it will be pretty easy to sort out from here. That will reduce it to a one line build command.

Hi Alan,

I have been running through the instructions all is going well (after setting up docker) but when I run

debuild -uc -us

after some time compiling taskmodule.cc I get the error below , do you know what this error means and how to fix it.

I should add that I killed the process as it seemed to have crashed.  


Thanks
Nick

Still couldn't get debuild to complete so reverted to using build in place. this time it compiled.

Thanks for this guide.  I think I got everything installed properly but encountered a couple areas where I had questions:

1. QT Designer script asked for "Run In Place" vs "Package" installation; I assumed Package.
2. sudo dpkg -i mesact_1.1.2_arm64.deb had an error message saying it wasn't a valid Debian archive; I downloaded mesact_1.2.3_arm64.deb and installed instead.  Not sure if this will be an issue with the previous compilation steps before it.

Thanks again!

This might muddy the waters.....
There is not really any need to be building software on the pi when a  version of Debian Bookworm exists for several versions of the pi.
Here is some instructions I put together in April/May 2022.
docs.google.com/document/d/1S0K-UBlXnsYC...b_0/edit?usp=sharing

Note the Debian images do not install a graphical environment but we can install them using tasksel
Some of the tips came from a video showing Debian Bullseye I found over 12 months ago.
I don't think there is a solution to install  qtpyvcp and probe-basic yet.

I'll look into that. I tried the standard official install instructions but after the auto-updates the pi wouldn't boot anymore so I gave up. This thread's instructions worked for me so far.

Thanks for the great tutorial. I wanted to have a kernel debian package of the realtime kernel. Unfortunately, there is no official deb package. So I decided to do it on my own. It was much more complex than expected. So I created a  GitHub repository . But be careful its work in progress.

Hi Rod,

I've been looking around to see if someone's been able to install probe_basic on a rpi4 setup but haven't found anything. Do you know if this has been accomplished yet ?

Thanks !

Jay

P.S. I should mention we're trying to use the BTT SKR v1.4 Turbo.
