install new kinematics module

13 Sep 2017 20:58 #98926 by agsarg
Hi everyone. iam new here and trying to learn. I was trying to install a new kin module and spent some time reading here and i am not certain if i am doing it the right way. alredy have linuxcnc-dev but i couldnt "make" it at last. it says "libudev-dev not found" i was following this
Correct me if i am wrong but i thought i had to download, open a terminal and
> cd linuxcnc-dev/src
> ./
> ./configure --with-realtime=uspace
> make
and then add my newkinematics.c to the linuxcnc-dev/src/hal/components open a temrinal there and do halcompile --install newkinematics.c

i also have another question in the above link i posted 3.1.1 says--with-realtime=uspace
(providing G-code simulation but no realtime machine control). Does it mean i won t be able to manage my cnc? or how should i configure it? Thanks for yout time.

You seem to be doing a number of parts of different procedures.

You can either build all of LinuxCNC from source after adding your new kinematics file to the correct folder and to the makefile. This is the hard way and it sounds like you did about half of it.

_Or_ you can simply compile and install the new kins file from anywhere (including in your home directory) into an already-installs LinuxCNC with the "sudo halcompile --install mykins.c" command.

Try that, and if it doesn't work then tell us the exact error messages.
