Following the readme file mesaflash but can't get past the make section.

sudo apt install libpci-dev pkg-config

You may need to install git first:

sudo apt install git

Clone MesaFlash:

git clone github.com/LinuxCNC/mesaflash.git

From the top level directory, switch to the source directory:

cd mesaflash

In the source directory to build MesaFlash:

make

I get the following error

bash: make: command not found

Had no issues when doing this with Mint and pre 2.8. Currently using the iso install debian

Looks like you are missing the basic compiler tools

sudo apt-get install build-essential

should fix that

Yup, that was it.

Any advice on the best place to download the 7i92 firmware files to?Currentyl have it in
/home/bridgeport/linuxcnc/configs/7i92/configs/hostmot2/

Any utility in placing it with the rest of the firmware at
/lib/firmware/hm2/

I got en error saying I didn't have permission to do this when I tried a windows cut and paste.

Also tried:
cd Downloads
unzip 7i92.zip -d /lib/firmware/hm2/
Permission denied but was able to use the unzip command -d to get it into a different directory.

The missing firmware warning can be safely ignored, new Mesa cards do not need to load firmware at startup.
If you do need them, use
sudo
in front of the unzip/copy command.

Sudo did it, should have thought of that.

Does the location of the firmware effect pncconf ability to recognize the boards attached. I notice all of the firmwares come up from that file location and currently pncconf does not have windows for the 7i77 i/o tabs, just shows the tb5 tab. Can pull up the 7i84 once I select serial but also unable to change the 7i77 to mode 3.

Not a huge issue since I am going to have write a lot of this hal/ini

5i25 internal data, 7i77x2 with one 7i77, then click on "accept component changes".

Will this pick up the 7i78 I am also using?

Probably should have mentioned that also. I used the discover board mode to get everything going so far and then hand edited some stuff at the end. More just trying to understand how pncconf works.

There is good chance that you don't need to compile Mesafalsh yourself, you should be able to just install it.

sudo apt-get install mesaflash
