You need to review this line as pid.b is not loaded.
loadrt pid names=pid.x,pid.y,pid.z,pid.a,pid.s

In the next few days, I think the devs will release 2.8 which will become the distribution versions so yes, it should be much simpler soon!

Thanks Tommy.
My understanding from the Buildbot page is that 2.9 is unstable so I assumed 2.8 is the best to use since it says it is stable. Is my thinking off here?
Aren't all of these images only for 2.9 to work?
Maybe it would be a good idea to talk to whoever maintains linuxcnc.org website and put your easy install links in the download section for noobs like me not to have to waste 2 days trying to get things installed.

That is correct, 2.8 is stable and soon to be released, 2.9 or master is still under heavy development and may contain bugs.
It would be very useful if users of LinuxCNC would use 2.8 for production machines and master for hobby/tinkering/experimenting/finding and fixing bugs/adding functionality.

I think this has been a difficult time in linuxcnc history. A move to update the release from 2.7 to 2.8 started a couple of years ago. At that time there was 2.7 and master branch as it should be (a release branch and a development branch). So a new branch 2.8 was quarantined off from master branch pending that update. (That meant there were 3 branches)

The devs hit lots of roadblocks getting the release done and not a lot of it was Linuxcnc's fault. Lots of changes to Linux kernels, the underlying distribution going end of life and retirement of Python 2 which is replaced replaced with version 3 all played their part.

Today, they are on the cusp of releasing V 2.8 as the official release which will return back to the 2 release model.

I don't think master branch is something to be afraid of. I've been using that for about 4 years becasue there were features in it that I needed to use. (at the time master was set to V 2.8). Yes sometimes something breaks but I find that issues are identified and fixed quickly and changes are incorporated almost daily. You don't have to upgrade if you don't want to. Right now there has been a big change to adopt Python 3 but it was done a few months ago so I think most of the bugs are ironed out by now. I still use master branch on my machine and pick the times I upgrade.

Maybe I will make a second partition for experimenting with 2.9.
What are the biggest advantages of 2.9 over 2.8?
