Hi! New LinuxCNC user here.

The LinuxCNC live CD is working great for me and this is definitely the best way to get started.

I plan to do some coding so I wanted to have the same platform as my main computer which is Fedora. I spent quite a lot of time unsuccessfully trying to get a kernel with CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT_FULL working. Then I came across easy instructions. I thought other users may find this info useful.

There is a COPR repo by dwrobel  which documents the steps required to install a rt kernel and linuxcnc-uspace. The rt kernel is actually coming from CentOS 9 and will be well tested.

I then marked the rt kernel as the default to boot:
sudo grubby --set-default=/boot/vmlinuz-5.14.0-427.el9.x86_64+rt

With no other tuning latency-test gives me around 100,000ns jitter on my Intel NUC which I think will be OK for my application with a Mesa 7i96s card.

Nice, thank you.
I did try Fedora a while back, it is very good and very usable on a tablet PC, the thing that keeps me from using it is slow boot time (not very important) and the fact i use Debian derived distros for over 20 years.
Fedora is gaining popularity lately, a lot, so it is nice to have the option for machine control.
