click repositories to reveal some tabs but no option for partner repositories.
there is a source code radio button but it is locked and checked

Take a look at this thread: forum.linuxcnc.org/nativecam/39068-nativ...ge-for-buster-please

The third message from russtuff has a solution that worked for me.

Wow, Thank you for the tip, I had already tried this and failed but in the intervening few weeks i have obviously learned enough about linux that this time it worked! i now have 10 hard drives in the drawer all with blank installs and working Ncam.

thanks do much again, it really make a difference.

cheers

Does anybody know if there's a way to run nativecam with python3 on debian 11/devuan4?
