I just wanted to say I have been a developer for many years for linuxcnc and yet never had compiled a kernel.
This how to was excellent.
I actually think it should be added to the manual official.
Thanks for the hard work.

Any suggestions or feedback is welcomed!

Hi James I am having exactly the same problem ,first with 64 bit and now with 32 bit. I did find tcl8.4-dev and tk8.4-dev
quite easily though.

What do i need to do to find and install the other dependencies ?

Thanks

Which dependencies are you looking for Steve?

If 32bit or 64 I can help you out ;)

Steve I have that covered in the first part of the first posting.

It's the preface of the posts ;)

Add the repository listed there. The apt get install those your missing.

If you need further clarification or instructions let me know. You probably just missed it since it's not listed in the rest of the posts below it.

Ah yes I did not see that as I'm doing a pre-empt install, and I do have an AMD64.

Thank You again
Steve

Thanks for the excellent guide!
I eventually managed to get LinuxCNC running, but I've encountered some problems on the way.
First, I installed Mint 18.1 64-bit. It revealed severe problems with repositories, so I did not manage to install dependencies or compile the kernel. I tried sudo add-apt-repository 'deb mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu precise main universe' but no success either.
So I surrendered and installed Mint 18.1 32-bit.
I chose the latest kernel with RT patch 4.9.13-rt12. It showed a few errors at make install stage (other than the described problem with intel drivers), but surprisingly the kernel installed OK!
When installing linuxcnc from source, dpkg-checkbuilddeps did not work at all.
Other than that, everything turned out pretty well.
Latency test shows 28K / 46K.
Thanks again!

What dependencies issue were you having? Was it libgnomeprintui2.2-dev and python-support? After adding the repo did you issue a [sudo apt-get update] to refresh the package listing?

The errors could be from virtual box, did you install 3rd party software during install? If so then these pass errors on the kernel build.

For the checking dependencies [dpkg-checkbuilddeps], will only work if you enable source code repositories and update the package listing, after configuring linuxcnc [in the /linuxcnc-dev/debian/ folder]

If you would like to go through this again I can help walk you through it.
