Holly cow latency has jumped to 3903790 on 25us base thread. It seems thats a no go too.

This is getting more difficult than I expected, last machine run three years without missing a beat. And was not even that hard to get working. How come everything is so difficult now?

LinuxCNC depends on RTAI for good realtime performance, and RTAI development has lagged badly.

This is getting down right ridiculous needed manually run ldconfig to get the curl working, another evening gone finding that out by reading countless posts. Still cant see nativecam anywhere no matter what I type in terminal thats on any instructions. How can this be so hard after couple of years?

Should it go like this or what is next to do? What am I doing wrong?

Did you update the Wheezy sources file since it hit EOL anything to do with apt install broke until you point to the archives.

Done that already, it just wont install nativecam no matter what. Starting to get more than frustrating.

Have you found the ncam executable? You might need an explicit path to it.

Then, even when you find it, it probably needs to be started as ./ncam

If it gets installed in /home/user/.local/bin Debian may not be able to find it. I know that Debian 9 does not include the path to .local/bin and you have to put a .xrcsession file in the home directory to fix that. See item 3 here

Cant find it or even the nativecam folder anywhere. Need to figure this out later as now I'm out of time. I'll get to run my parts at the university machine.
I'll dig around more as I have catch up the time lost with current linux setup fiasco.

Not working, nothing gets downloaded for some reason. Week past and no change. Any step by step guide from start to finish?
Manual download and install? Complete working disk image, something.
I am done with trying. When nothing works.
Gone from good and working to complete useless after all changes and updates. Cnc works every single time, ncam is no where to be found.
It just don't exists anywhere. And it's not my network I can download anything I choose but nativecam.
