Everything works fine for Debian. Thank you!
But when I want to use Linucnc. in the process to configure Linuxcnc, I can't find the the GPIO drivers in the interfaces or everywhere.
What can I do?
Cordially.

Don't ask me, I just built the installer :)
I think you are supposed to use this linuxcnc.org/docs/2.9/html/drivers/hal_gpio.html

Been running this on the bench and it's working fine. Thanks.

My only comment is that I can't see any release notes to see what has changed between the versions.

Glad you like it. The changes don't really affect the user. Originally, we built Linuxcnc master branch to get the gpio driver. But that was pushed back into 2.9 branch so that is what we build now as that will be released in the very short term.

Then there was an upgrade to the raspberry kernel which we incorporated. That is meaningless to the user.

Hopefully, the next version will be on the linuxcnc downloads page!

Hi Rod,
Thanks for creating the image. Last night I installed it and even managed to change the Linux GUI to Cinnamon. It’s easier for me to navigate with.
Over the weekend I’ll have a crack at configuring it for my Taig Mill.

Cheers
Peter

Thanks Peter, I'll be keen to hear how you get on.

Now you've made it to the dark side, how about becoming a Mesa Distributor Down under? The closest one is in NZ which is not terribly convenient.

Please download this version of the Rpi image 
drive.google.com/file/d/10lxh9Icf07pw9ki.../view?usp=share_link
This should be the final version that goes into the 2.9.1 release of linuxcnc
Because Andy has built the 2.9.1 debs, we use those instead of building from source and the image size has shrunk to 1.2 Gb!
New in this release are repositories for ethercat including the hal driver. 

To install ethercat and the hal driver (I hope):
sudo apt install ethercat-master libethercat-dev linuxcnc-ethercat
Then follow the sticky in the ethercat section to complete installation
forum.linuxcnc.org/ethercat/45336-etherc...-how-to-step-by-step

I'd love to hear feedback on the ethercat installation. I dopn't have a working pin anymore.

I can't include QTPYVCP repositories as they don't publish debs for the Raspberry Pi.
