Hi,

Maybe try one single motor driver config first. Then your problem is easyer to find.
Your xml is quite big at the moment.

sorry guys .... I read the how to ... and all seems to install good .... but is not possible for me install linuxcnc-ethercat-master .... I have these messages:
demo@demo:~/linuxcnc-ethercat-master/src$ sudo make /***** sudo or not is the same messages*****/
make[1]: Entering directory '/home/demo/linuxcnc-ethercat-master/src'
user.mk:1: ../config.mk: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** No rule to make target '../config.mk'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/demo/linuxcnc-ethercat-master/src'
Makefile:6: recipe for target 'all' failed
make: *** [all] Error 2

Some ideas about? (i use ubuntu 18.04 and Lcnc 2.9 rt-preemt).

@blt.

At page nr.1 you can see the same question:
forum.linuxcnc.org/27-driver-boards/3559...stall?start=0#122736

I can not install the linuxcnc-ethercat,
when I 'make', print "halcompile/comp ececutable not found or set"
Could you tell me why?

It looks like linuxcnc is not installed as run in place, did you installed the linuxcnc-dev version with all dependencies?


For me it's a long time ago i did the install, so that makes it harder to give the solution right away..
Good luck !

Hi @btk,

are you sure you got the right header installed with your real time linux?

Otherwise try this:

This first step is required to make the ethercat+linuxcnc work, as indicated by @Hawkeye in forum.linuxcnc.org/24-hal-components/223...ver?start=670#123888 . On my case this is required to avoid the error while launching linuxcnc with ethercat:

<stdin>:3: waitpid failed /usr/bin/rtapi_app lcec
<stdin>:3: /usr/bin/rtapi_app exited without becoming ready
<stdin>:3: insmod for lcec failed, returned -1

Go to the directory where you have been cloning the git linuxcnc-ethercat. Mine is in ~/linuxcnc-ethercat.

cd ~/linuxcnc-ethercat
gedit ~/linuxcnc-ethercat/src/lcec_main.c

edit this file adding #include "rtapi_mutex.h" below #include "rtapi_app.h" then save and close gedit.


as written on page 4 steps of this thread.

For this make, try also without sudo.

Nicolas

@Grotius .... thanks but seems my problem was ../config.mk related no other, because linuxcnc-dev is installed and work well .... with real machine ...

@Nico2017 ...thanks but these trick not solve my problem because i can launch "make" proces only inside forlder: ***/linuxcnc-ethercat-master/src .... file user.mk -include ../config.mk .... but config.mk not exist. Exist on ***/linuxcnc-ethercat-master folder, but not sure is the same .... ... I try to copy and rename it ......

@all .... I have an enormus doubt ... did i make a big mistake if i installed ethercat-linuxcnc and ec-debianize / etherlabmaster outside the linuxcnc-dev folder?

because now i try to run "make" on folder ~/linuxcnc-ethercat-master and I can see the error mentioned by Nico2017 .... so if never find halcompile/comp ..... probabily is because is not in the right folder. Is these right?

Hello @bkt
demo @ demo: ~ / linuxcnc-ethercat-master / src $ sudo make / ***** sudo o no son los mismos mensajes ***** /
make [1]: Entrando en el directorio '/ home / demo / linuxcnc-ethercat-master / src'
user.mk:1: ../config.mk: no existe tal archivo o directorio
make [1]: *** No hay regla para hacer objetivo '../config.mk'. Detener.
make [1]: Saliendo del directorio '/ home / demo / linuxcnc-ethercat-master / src'
Makefile: 6: la receta para el objetivo 'todos' falló
make: *** [all] Error 2

I do not know if you have solved the problem, but this simply means that you are not in the correct location, you are doing
/ linuxcnc-ethercat-master / src $ sudo make
should be
/ linuxcnc-ethercat-master / sudo make

after the first compilation you can also do
make
from the
/ src
location

Other things .... sittner have add patch for 2.8 Lcnc .... it works on 2.9 too?

if they also work in 2.9

I explain again my problem, because not well explained yet I think:
  1. linuxcnc-dev 2.9 is installed and work on real machinery.
  2. Install ec-debianize is done, I can set my mac adress etc etc
  3. Install linuxcnc-ethercat ... these is a problem, if try to launch these command: $ cd linuxcnc-ethercat/ => make .... make process not find halcomp file ...... but i use Grotius guide on page 1, reply 2 of these thread

Any one have these problem? Only depends from Linuxcnc-dev versions 2.9 instead 2.8?

regards
bkt
