This is essentially 32 bit wheezy, with a special, pinned, rtai patched 
kernel on the 3 machines actually moving metal cutting hardware.  Same 
install on all 4 machines but because I've 8Gb of ram in this box, and 
the rtai patches destroy PAE, and in this case also put me 500 megs to a 
gigabyte into swap in 24 hours uptime, the kernel was unpinned and I 
went hunting for one that could see the 8Gb and use it, and could also 
run the simulated LCNC I use to write gcode from a comfy chair. Found it 
in  3.16.7-ckt25-2~bpo70+1 and pinned it again.

The other 3 machines have 2Gb or 4Gb of ram and have no such problems 
running the 3.4-9-rtai-686-pae #1 SMP PREEMPT Debian 3.4.55-4linuxcnc
kernel.  And despite the PAE above, it is not PAE. It runs from power 
outage to power outage just fine.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
