Unhoming on startup

I just recently switched from axis to gmoccapy and the machine now needs rehomed each time I restart linuxCNC (not the whole PC). Axis would stay homed even after reset since the encoders are tracked by a mesa card. It seems gmoccapy is unhoming everything and resetting the counts to zero on startup. Is there any way to have it save the previous home state?

Are you sure that the MESA card continues tracking the encoders when LinuxCNC is off?
However, have you tried with "HOME_ABSOLUTE_ENCODER = 2" (linuxcnc.org/docs/html/config/ini-homing...ome_absolute_encoder, forum.linuxcnc.org/49-basic-configuratio...le-homing-of-an-axis)


Otherwise you could use immediate homing: linuxcnc.org/docs/html/config/ini-homing.html#_immediate_homing
