I guess most open source projects get less than 1% of users actually contributing something back to the project? I wonder if some autodoc system could be made to force people to contribute in order to get support from a real person? :lol Unfortunately 99% of people are here to get free cnc software installed for zero cost, they are not interested in playing with software development as a hobby. As a start does machinekit have a easy access wiki system? (http://www.machinekit.io/community/contributing/) Of course this forum may not be the best place to find linuxcnc help, as it is actually here for discussion of machinekit, so maybe the original poster should start by updating the wiki (http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?BeagleBone) with all the information they have used and the steps they took to install machinekit on the beaglebone. Then maybe some of the experts here could take time away from their most important work to review and analyse the problem? -- website: http://www.machinekit.io blog: http://blog.machinekit.io github: https://github.com/machinekit --- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Machinekit" group.
