Thank you for this!

I have spent many hours tryign to get EtherCAT working on various LinuxCNC machines and each machine seemed to have its own issues getting it setup.

Your ISO has elimiated this entirely, If at all possible this should be one of the standard ISO downloads on the downloads page!

Thanks again!

Best Regards,
Paul

Hi Linux users,

There is a new Distro available. It's just more than one iso.
Trough huge file size's (up to 5gb a file) i had to migrate from github to sourceforge and upload it with sftp.

Linux debian 4.19.0-14-rt-amd64

Check the download site : sourceforge.net/projects/skynet-software/

Improvements :
- all program launchers are in the system menu.
- programs are stored in : /usr/local/include/

Have fun. P.s. i have not test it. But i think it will work out of the box.

Edit : Tested Okidokie


@Papagano,
This distro have some example for ethercat with delta-a2 drives ?
Not at the moment. If someone give me the linuxcnc sample files i can include them in the distro, for users selectable with the linuxcnc configuration picker.
I would integrate this by providing a patch for the linuxcnc github source code.

Hello
thanks for the great job!
I have a problem starting LinuxCNC witch my ethercat configuration .
From the terminal I can send and receive commands with EtherCAT .

I copied both files: lcec_conf and lcec_so in config folder
and showed the directory of the files in the my ethercat HAL file .

When starting the program (LinuxCNC) I'm getting an error :
lcec_conf exited without becoming ready

I change the default directory on /etc/init.d/ethercat
Then I try to start ethercat witch with this command :
/etc/init.d/ethercat start

But I'm getting a error cannot open shared object file: No such file or directoryl
I am new to Linux and can miss small command ... just can not find alone solution. Thanks!

"lcec_conf exited without becoming ready" this tells you that lcec_conf is called but can't do its job correctly.. But normally there must be more infos in terminal whats going wrong with lcec_conf

Did you create an ethcercat_conf.xml file for your configuration?
Please post your hal and ini file, so we can take a look whats goin wrong.

Thanks ,
I tried to deal with the problem myself, but I can't handle it. I attach the configuration files. I'm trying to make one driver work with LinuxCNC. There can be a lot of nonsense inside. I'm just new to the world of Linux / LinuxCNC

Hi Grotius,

i have tried your iso-file and it works very well on my old HP Compaq 8000 Elite with Intel Core 2 CPU. Then i have tried it on my new self-assembled PC with AMD Ryzen 9 CPU. There i got an "Kernel Module not found" error.

Do you happen to know what the error could be? Could be the Bios settings an issue?

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,

Nic

Hi Nic,

I don't know your issue. For linux you could change your hard drive from your old pc to your new pc. This should normally work.
If above tryout is not working, you could try this one.
And if that works, then you are using the same operating system as me.
You could try to downgrade the kernel to a 4.19 wich can be performing slightly better.

Another option is burn a dvd with this one.
I don't like that version, but is is downloaded over 560 times.

Good luck !
