BeagleBone Black LinuxCNC No Cape Import Error

Asked by 4 months ago
Hey guys, I've successfully loaded MachineKit on my BBB (Thanks Charles!). Though I have no capes, I am just trying to fiddle around with LinuxCNC as I have no real experience with it. Trying to load the BeBoPr-Bridge, or any simulator (AXIS) gives me the same error: Starting LinuxCNC... io started halcmd loadusr io started emcTaskInit: using builtin interpreter Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/linuxcnc/linuxcnc/bin/axis", line 3254, in <module> from rs274.icon import icon ImportError: No module named icon Shutting down and cleaning up LinuxCNC... Cleanup done My linuxcnc_debug.txt file includes: Can not find -sec MOT -var MOT -num 1 Can not find -sec IO -var IO -num 1 Can not find -sec LINUXCNC -var NML_FILE -num 1 Can not find -sec EMC -var NML_FILE -num 1 4333 PID TTY STAT TIME COMMAND 4401 PID TTY STAT TIME COMMAND 4401 pts/0 S 0:04 milltask -ini /home/linuxcnc/linuxcnc/configs/sim/axis/axis.ini PID TTY STAT TIME COMMAND Stopping realtime threads Unloading hal components Seems to be nothing out of the ordinary in my linuxcnc_print.txt either. Seems I'm just missing a module somehow. I've tried to also update everything. git pull origin downloads all files, but when I make, I get the following error: Done reading dependencies make: Entering directory '/home/linuxcnc/linuxcnc/src' *** has changed *** Not rnning autoconf to avoid tainting universal build Please investigate or start from scratch: ./ & ./configure --your-configure-args... make: *** [configure] Error 1 make: Leaving directory At this point, I'm pretty confused and I'm not sure where to go next. Any help would greatly be appreciated so I can start tinkering with settings. Thanks to all those involved so far to get this far!

I managed to get make to work by running autogen and it is currently compiling. Hopefully this will get me through the errors on loading.

Which image did you start with? The last stable image was from December (yes, I need to make new ones), but there was a March image from March that you could have downloaded (if you looked for it) that was experimental and generally didn't work. I'm working on switching to the new "Official" BeagleBone Debian build scripts for the next images, but it's been slow going.
