Just checked, the comp binary and includes etc are in the machinekit-<flavour package> not the main one.
It was a while back, forgot which.

The Makefile.inc etc are per flavour, to stop the problems we had with machinekit-dev always having a posix flavour
because of the build setup for that package.

I've got the latest machinekit package installed, but I don't see a
comp command.  There's an instcomp binary, but it doesn't like the two
*.comp files I'm trying to compile, reporting:

EXTRA_LDFLAGS="-lprussdrv" instcomp --compile raster.comp
Error: Unrecognized file type for mode compile: 'raster.comp'
machinekit@beaglebone:~/embedded/beaglebone$ instcomp --compile
--userspace BBB_listener.comp
Error: Unrecognized file type for mode compile: 'BBB_listener.comp'

HI Charles

Yes Comp, plus headers, Makefile.inc and everything else in the -dev
package was moved into the main machinekit package some time ago.

There are only four machinekit-dev packages left in the repo and they
match the also deprecated wheezy and raspian packages in the repo,

which are retained for completeness of support rather than usefullness.

I'm trying to migrate to a fresh install on a BBB and am having

the comp command is missing, so I figure I'll just install
machinekit-dev package.  But apt-get complains about broken packages
and how I need a different version of the machinekit package than I
have installed.

I checked on machienkit.io and machinekit-dev version is:


...while my installed machinekit package (and the most recent
available on machinekit.io) is:


So...are the machinekit-dev packages broken, or did the comp utility
move somewhere else and machinekit-dev is now deprecated?
