Hi Gene!

My recipe to Devuan ascii + LinuxCNC is this (take the commandlines with a salt of grain, I'm not the machine right now):
- Install linuxcnc from the linuxcnc ISO
- "aptitude update && aptitude dist-upgrade"
- "apt-mark hold linux-image-3...."
- "apt-mark hold rtai-...."
- "apt-mark hold linuxcnc"
- add Devuan repsitory for jessie, upgrade to jessie. 
- "aptitude purge $(dpkg -l|grep ^rc|tr : ' '|awk '{print $2}')
- change from jessie to ascii, upgrade to asci
- install "apt-show-versions"
- aptitude purge $(apt-show-versions|grep --invert-match uptodate|cut : ' '| awk '{print $1}'
- when this is done, I intall TDE and purge all gnome stuff, and install NCAM
After this operation "axis" does not work, but "gmoccapy". "ncam" works,  "camview" does not, but "mplayer" does.

and get a bit more bottels of beer .. 


Please do not email me anything that you are not comfortable also sharing with the NSA, CIA ...
