I installed the grub-customizer and that worked but now an issue I had before is back where upon on startup and window pops up with this message. "Could not update ICEauthority file /home/john/.ICEauthority". I see some solutions on the web that I will try when I get home.

Thanks

I was going to do that once I had the RTAI kernel with no issues.

Thanks

Success! I solved my .ICEAuthorty and slow boot issue. I now have Linux Mint 19.2. using the RTAI 4.14.148-rtai-amd64 kernel

For RTAI Kernel and LinuxCNC 2.8.0-Pre1 I used the .deb files from www.linuxcnc.org/temp

Linux X3CNC 4.14.148-rtai-amd64 #2 SMP PREEMPT Sat Nov 9 16:29:10 GMT 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

This is running on a ECS BAT-I(1.2)/J1800 Intel Celeron J1800 2.41 GHz Mini ITX Motherboard / CPU / VGA Combo w/ 4gb ram and a SanDisk 240gb SSD.

At this point I have the machine moving under 2.8.0~Pre1. When I get my pendant back from repair in 2 weeks I will be able do some full usage testing. While waiting for that I can get my secondary high-speed spindle setup under 2.8.

These are with 6 glxgears and 2 youtube videos running.





Is there anything in particular I should try when testing?

Thanks to all who helped me over the hurdles.
John

Just to see the difference: what were the values whn running RT_PREEMPT on the same board?

Can you get the screen resolution you want with that kernel? I am running a VM on my iMac with it, but can't get more than 1152x854 resolution. (This is a bit disappointing on a 5120 x 2880 display). I can't work out if that is a limit of the kernel of the interaction between the kernel and the virtualisation environment. I don't have a standalone monitor with more than 1024x768 resolution to test the kernel on though.

I would have to look for the exact numbers but I think it was more that 120,000. I using a Mesa 5i25+7i76.

I'm think it is running at 1920 x 1080 but I will double check that tonight. It is a 1920 x 1080 monitor and looks good.

That means it's a VMware problem, which I can ignore :-)

I just ran into a nasty thing: the linuxcnc package wants an older libboost than python3 - which is needed by dxf2gcode. Any chance to update the linuxcnc package so that it plays nicely with python3?
