.

first install Linux mint 17.3 64bit.
then run update manager to make sure mint is up to date.
you will need to install a real-time kernel in Linux mint.
you can compile your own or use the pre compiled 4.1.36 kernel i have uploaded her as it is to large to attach to the forum
wikisend.com/download/457550/rtlinuxdeb.tar.gz
it should be good for 90 days.

if you use the attached kernel download the rtlinuxdeb.tar.gz file.
extract the files. then right click on linux-image-4.1.36-4.1.36-rt42-rt42_4.1.36-4.1.36-rt42-rt42-10.00.Custom_amd64.deb
and select open with GDebi package installer then click install package.
next right click on linux-headers-4.1.36-4.1.36-rt42-rt42_4.1.36-4.1.36-rt42-rt42-10.00.Custom_amd64.deb
and select open with GDebi package installer then click install package.

reboot computer
open a terminal window and type uname -a.
it should report 4.1.36-rt42.

copy install-lcnc.txt to the root directory change the permissions to allow executing file as program.
open a terminal in the root directory and type ./install-lcnc.text
this will install all the dependences, download Linux cnc 2.7.8, compile the program and install it on the computer.
if you want a different version of Linux cnc you can edit the text file
this will take a little while.
when done reboot the computer and run Linux cnc from the menu.

Eric,

What commands did you use to package .deb the compiled kernel?
make
sudo make deg-pkg modules_install
sudo make deb-pkg install

#Never mind! I found the information I was looking for:
kernel-handbook.alioth.debian.org/ch-common-tasks.html

After the configuration process is finished, the new or updated kernel configuration will be stored in .config file in the top-level directory. The build is started using the commands
$ make clean
$ make deb-pkg
