Hi,
I am attempting to install the RTAI kernel on a fresh installation of Debian Bookworm, following the instructions provided in the LinuxCNC Documentation 2.9.Here are the steps I have taken:
  1. Executed the script ( www.linuxcnc.org/linuxcnc-install.sh)
  2. Ran the following commands :
    1. -> sudo apt-get update
    2. -> sudo apt-get install linuxcnc 
​​​​​​​However, I encountered an error during the installation process:
dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/linuxcnc_1%3a2.9.2_amd64.deb (--unpack): trying to overwrite '/usr/share/applications/linuxcnc-documentation.desktop', which is also in package linuxcnc-doc-en 1:2.9.2

I would appreciate any assistance or guidance to resolve this issue.

Thank you.

Use the ISO on the downloads page, it is Debian 12 BookWorm with LinuxCNC already installed.
www.linuxcnc.org/iso/LinuxCNC_2.9.2-amd64.hybrid.iso

Okay, I will try that out. I guess the kernel after installation will be the preempt kernel, but can I install the RTAI kernel with the same steps I mentioned in my first question?

Install that ISO, then use this to install the RTAI kernel and LinuxCNC

linuxcnc.org/docs/2.9/html/getting-start...#cha:Installing-RTAI
section :
7.2. Installing on Debian Bookworm (with experimental RTAI kernel)

I've done that, but LinuxCNC is not available. When I tried to update my apt repository using the script in 7.1, I encountered an error:

E: Conflicting values set for option Signed-By regarding source www.linuxcnc.org/ bookworm: /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/linuxcnc.gpg.key.binary.gpg != /usr/share/keyrings/linuxcnc.gpg
E: The list of sources could not be read

I also tried the LinuxCNC .deb package directly from the Downloads page, but the Package Installer aborts without any notification.
(www.linuxcnc.org/dists/bookworm/2.9-rt/b...xcnc_2.9.2_amd64.deb)

I have already installed the RTAI kernal and booted into it before attempting this command.

Try just installing the Linuxcnc package, after removing the docs package

wget linuxcnc.org/dists/bookworm/2.9-rt/binar...xcnc_2.9.2_amd64.deb

sudo apt install ./linuxcnc_2.9.2_amd64.deb

The issue is with the docs package, which isn't really required for a basic install.

I'm trying to upgrade from linuxcnc 2.8 to 2.9 rtai on Debian 10 and I'm also having the same problem, the strange thing is that I've done this same procedure several times and it always worked, now it doesn't work anymore

What isn't working?

Are you definitely installing matching kernels and linuxcnc packages?
