Quote from: uMinded on March 10, 2013, 07:17:13 pmI was on a roll yesterday and the stars seemed to align. It is by far a fully working LinuxCNC build though, about 33 of the tests fail but it does compile without any errors and the only warnings are that kernel headers are being used which is not a problem on our custom builds. Pretty much all of the GUI programs do not run but the HAL layer is fully functional it seems.
Quote from: uMinded on March 10, 2013, 07:17:13 pmI found the only way to get the program compiled was to do it on the olinuxino which is surprisingly quite fast at compiling! With it being on the target hardware their was no complaints about missing files or wrong locations as autotools was able to put everything in its place. I will dump a crude page on the wiki so have a look if you would like.

Quote from: uMinded on March 10, 2013, 07:17:13 pmNOTE: LinuxCNC currently has no pin toggling capabilities in rtapi/rtapi_bitops.h, I put null functions in to get it to compile. I recommend we create a HAL component hal_parport to access our hardware so as to leave the LinuxCNC code base unaffected.

I was looking to do one specifically for the A13-LCD7-TS using Glade + Python or possibly GladevcpI also do not believe the Oli is going to be fast enough to directly drive stepper motors (or pwms for that matter), so need some way of communicating velocity information off to something that can, like an Arduino, FPGA, etc.
