I know, I am sorry for mismatching but I can not find any relevan source of .xml syntax. Can you recommend me anything if you have better overview please? Do you thing it is good idea to create new topic only for this reason?

maybe some mod can move this later..

<dcConf assignActivate="300" sync0Cycle="*1" sync0Shift="0"/>

dcconf is per slave and has to be in correspondening <slave> description.

assignActivate statement tells the master the dcmode of the slave, this has to be found in the slave's manual.

sync0Cycle = *1 or *2 = x times from apptime period (ethercat cycle) , an number without * gives an custom cycle time.

As of 16.Dec 2022

sudo apt update

yields

Not found : download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:...:/EtherLab/Debian_10 ./Packages 404 Not found [IP: 195.135.221.134 443]

can anyone confirm or knows a different source before I start my own build?

Some hicup with the Pubkey caused this

Please try again and check the detail carefully. I think you have a malformed URL somewhere
Share your errors in side CODE statements so we can see the raw output. I thought there is a space that should not be there.
NOthing has changed I can see.
The repo is there.

Hello rodw

I try to install EtherCat driver as per your instructions. Everything is going fine up to the point

cd ~/dev/linuxcnc-ethercat
make clean
sudo make install <
cd ..

I get error : configure.mk:32: *** Unable to get modinc path. Stop.
Looking at configure.mk file it seems that in my system the command COMP is missing (?)

do you have any idea what is missing here?
My system in high level consists of :
Debian 11 Bullseye
with
Linux debian 5.10.0-20-rt-amd64 #1 SMP PREEMPT_RT Debian 5.10.158-2 (2022-12-13) x86_64 GNU/Linux
Thanks in advance

I think you need to open the spoiler and replace the contents of realtime.mk with the contents in the spoiler.
This was part of the standard instructions until I found it caused issues more recently on Bookworm.
But I definitely had to do it in Bullseye.

Hello Rod, thanks for your reply...

I did as you suggest (replace the contents of src/realtime.mk with the spoiler content) with the same result as realtime.mk includes ../config.mk) first line

Still the command (?) COMP does not exist in the system

config.mk -> line 30 MODINC=$(shell $(COMP) --print-modinc)
or
config.mk -> line 5 COMP = $(shell which comp)

find / -name COMP returns nothing and related search in the net does not seem to indicate any findings

Can you please think of what can be the problem here ?
Thanks in advance

Hi Rod,

I followed your installation steps but get stuck early on in the process. I do not know how to resolve. Here's the relevant last part of the terminal output were errors started appearing:

It seems a bit odd.
You are running kernel 5.15 yet buster was only kernel 4.9
I can not see that you installed the linux_headers for the 5,15 kernel before trying to install ethercat?
My guess is the linux-headers are wrong for your kernel.
this does not look right and seems out of order: raspberrypi-kernel-headers
you must be installing ethercat for the kernel you run and seems to easilly get confused hence using $(uname -r)


what does lsb_release -a say
