Steppers work ok in pncconf tests but not with Axis

I recently upgraded with a new computer, a new linux installation, a  new touch screen, and a new linuxcnc install. I copied my old data into the pncconf wizard. I am running Mesa 5i25 and Mesa 7i76. The steppers work normally from the test screens within the pncconf wizard but nothing works with the axis gui (ver 2.8.4 -1- gb78247176).  The steppers are enabled and under power. This milling machine worked great before and now I am stumped.

Can you post your hal and ini files?

I will tomorrow. I am hoping it is just a setting I missed somewhere!
