Linuxcnc on Linux Mint 19.3 quick and easy installation
I did notice that, and the same thing with all RT kernels i compiled lately, but this has a bit better latency on same hardware.

Using the 4.14.28-rt23-kona-rt_amd64 from the same page resolved this.
Thank you for reporting your findings.
To develop G-code programs, I'd like to install a sim version on my laptop, which also runs Linux Mint 19.2
but the installer gave an error message: dependency is not satisfyable: libboost-python 1.49.0
As a Linux beginner I don't know yet how to proceed. Should I make buildmaster a ppa, download another version, or first find the mission python parts?
UPDATE: I installed the PREEMPT (not the sim) version on standard Linux Mint 19.2 No errors, works well for offline G-code testing
Thanks for help.

-Install Linux Mint 19.1
-Download and install using gdebi a kernel from this link
Restart, hold down shift and ctrl to show grub2 menu, choose the above kernel
-Download and install using gdebi the version of Linuxcnc you want
Tested on two computers, version 2.8 and 2.9 work.
I found those kernels by searching google, i have no idea if we can use them but since they are as Debian packages i assume it is OK to use them. Also the link to buildmaster is hard to find, so if it is not supposed to be shown here, please do remove this post.
mint bro here. Which file do i download?
I clicked on "2.8-rtpreempt/" and i got more directory files.
and why does the linuxcnc website say current version at 2.7?
I have done this on my windows laptop and it works fine. I just decide at boot time which OS to load.
You have to install Windows first.
Just pay attention to the questions asked when you run the Linux install and its easy.
But before you buy a new one, post up the name and model of the dongle and also type lsub (or sudo lsub) and report back what it says. we might find a solution.
