Ahoj Slav,
Pretty sure there is an ISO with ethercat installed in one of these links made by Grotius, so try to find it.
There should be several versions so find the latest.

Hello, I encountered such a problem when I executed : sudo ./get_source.sh
I get this :
qxh@qxh-w:~/2/linuxcnc-dev/ec-debianize$ sudo ./get_source.sh

hg: unknown command 'qpush'
'qpush' is provided by the following extension:

mq manage a stack of patches

use "hg help extensions" for information on enabling extensions

Can you help me solve it? Thank you

Hi @Wang,

please see post: forum.linuxcnc.org/27-driver-boards/3559...tall?start=50#157205 , on the earlier page of this thread (p6 by default).

I hope this helps.

Hi,

I think this is because the first step which use mercurial (hg) did not completely succeed. Restart from the install EtherCAT step 0
Make sure you got:

sudo apt-get install quilt

before. But this is more likely due to the mercurial hg options. At the first step doing:
cd ec-debianize
./get_source.sh
Read carefully the output. There might be an error indicated even if it is not clearly flagging it. This might implies hg extensions which use the qpush command which requires the mq extension. To add an extension in mercurial, follow the suggested help displayed on the terminal, creating a ~/.hgrc , ie on your home directory. Then edit this file as a text file:
[extensions]
mq =
Retry step ./get_source.sh till you got a complete success of this step. I have noticed that this might work or not depending how you did the git cloning with or without root privilege. Same thing with the creation of the .hgrc file. You might have also to
sudo ./get_source.sh
as this is copying some files in specific locations.

Let me know how it this help, at least send the output of the ./get_source.

Once this step is successful you can carry on the installation

Thank you,
Nicolas

I read your post and I also encountered this problem. I would like to ask how you linked to the real-time kernel
I think you said to delete the non-real-time kernel mandatory link, but how to delete the non-real-time kernel and not update a new kernel? Because sudo apt-get remove linux-image-*** he will install a new high version kernel. And do you need to reinstall ec-debianizer

兄弟,我遇到了一个问题
当我“sudo update-ethercat-config”时我得到
Updating EtherCAT master confiuration
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-3.13.0-117-generic
done.

but i want get that:
[color=#c0392b][b][code][code]Updating EtherCAT master confiuration
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-3.4.9-rt17
done
[/code][/b][/color][/code]


why the Ethercat cannot link to the rt-preempt kernel?

Has anyone encountered a problem: the current in the drive periodically jumps. Most often this happens
when the computer is loaded, it can also happen in unloaded, but not often.

I try to up refClockSyncCycles in xml. But it doesn't work. Maybe it's configure in this line
<dcConf assignActivate="300" sync0Cycle="*1" sync0Shift="250000"/>
<watchdog divider="2498" intervals="1000"/>
Tell me who encounter with this problem

hello folks,

excuse me for disturbing.

why is it disable 8139too network card during installation of ethercat from this TODO list
forum.linuxcnc.org/27-driver-boards/3559...all?start=110#184991

in the section
-- Get the ethercat software
$ hg clone hg.code.sf.net/p/etherlabmaster/code ethercat-hg
$ cd ethercat-hg
$ hg update stable-1.5

-- Install the ethercat software
$ ./bootstrap
here  -------          $ ./configure --disable-8139too --with-linux-dir=/usr/src/linux-headers-4.19.0-11-rt-amd64/
$ make all modules
$ sudo make modules_install install
$ sudo depmod

there I have to use "generic" driver for all types of network cards but how I read it should affect latency...

I actually have realtek 8139 network card... but driver looks like turned off during the instalation because when I changed driver type in 
/etc/default/ethercat
from
DEVICE_MODULES="generic"
to
DEVICE_MODULES="8139too"
after
sudo update-ethercat-config
it showed me warrning
Updating EtherCAT master confiuration
modinfo: ERROR: Module ec_8139too not found.
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-4.19.0-11-rt-amd64

is it soooo much difference between "8139too" and "generic" driver as was told in other topic please?

thanks, Slav

Hi Foxington,

It's just a config choice. The install script is limited. The script has no logic for searching for a installed 8139 driver.

Grotius,

and is here any possibility to turn on or allow 8139too driver back again please?

It was just dis-enabled during the installation of ethercat if I am not wrong?

when I typed
root@debian:/home/cnc# lspci -v | grep "Ethernet\|driver"|grep -A1 Ethernet
00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82567LM-3 Gigabit Network Connection (rev 02)
    Kernel driver in use: e1000e
--
10:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8100/8101L/8139 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter (rev 10)
    Subsystem: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8100/8101L/8139 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter
    Kernel driver in use: 8139too

there are two drivers in kernel now, e1000e on integrated network card and pci port 8139too... but if I both mac adresses and names replaced in ethercat config
MASTER0_DEVICE=
I will have same error of
Updating EtherCAT master confiuration
modinfo: ERROR: Module ec_8139too not found.
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-4.19.0-11-rt-amd64

or 

Updating EtherCAT master confiuration 
modinfo: ERROR: Module ec_e1000e not found. 
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-4.19.0-11-rt-amd64
