Building LinuxCNC Uspace

Instructions for building the RT-Preempt kernel on various OS’s.

Each OS has it’s merits, older OS’s usually work better on older hardware and likewise newer OS’s work better on newer hardware. The Debian OS’s are a bit easier to install but I think Linux Mint is a bit more user friendly.

  • First install the RT Preempt Kernel of your choice. Often the latest kernel is not the best for latency if the hardware is a bit older.
  • Second install LinuxCNC using the same OS as your first choice.
  • Third if you are using a Mesa Ethernet card setup the NIC using the same OS instructions.
