Hi one and all.
After a considerable amount of water has flowed under many bridges, I have re-appeared, but in a slightly different guise.
After a couple of days trying to get my old user name and password sorted out, I gave up, and have opened a new account as myself.

Much changed, with a second marriage, and emigrated from UK to Mississippi (a long story), coming out of retirement at 80 seems quite normal.
Regards all,
John

Welcome back, I searched for your name but didn't find it so it must have gotten purged at some point.

Hi JT.
Managed to ship most of my CNC out with me, but not the desktop, so it's back to square one setting up the new workshop.
Regards
John

Hi John,
Having a problem getting the download installed, possibly due to lack of practice !
Terminal threw this at me

Any thoughts, or should I post this elsewhere on the forum ?

Installing LinuxCNC would be fine. Include the line that caused the error and what your trying to do.

Sorry I'm being a pain, but pasting in the tar -xpf linux-4.19.1.tar.xz line produced

the filename should probably end in .tar.gz not .tar.xz

type "ls" (letter L letter S, both lowercase without quotes) That will list the files in the current directory and you can see what it is named.

Have you looked at a livecd install? you just download the iso, and burn it to cd or usb drive. Then it will install everything for you (use a dedicated hard drive or computer because it will delete everything on there already)
