CNC & Mx Linux

Looking for some suggestions on where anyone in this community uses MX Linux with a CNC/Laser machine. I recently purchased a 3018 Mini CNC and would like to use MX to run it. I've looked a lot of different programs, Grbl, Universal G-Code and Easel to name a few. I didn't get any results when searc...

Re: Anyone buying the new Rpi 4?

I will at some point. Bit pricey in the Canadian market. The new upgraded specs are a very nice to see; USB3, USB-C and the up-age of RAM all great upgrades to the tiny SMB.

Re: Help needed with NFS share

No. Raspberry Pi to windows NFS share works. Raspberry Pi to MX Linux NFS does not. Not sure if this is relevant, but during the installation process, there is a screen where you can pick some packages to have installed automatically. The screen is not visible, you have to click on a button to get ...

Re: Help needed with NFS share

Nope not the command line and also not Samba. Trying to use fstab in Raspberry Pi to connect to a NFS share on my MX Linux machine.
