Well, the wish list isn't all wish list.
I do want an somewhat official Raspberry Pi, LinuxCNC distro/variant, using one of the two real-time patches done.
Though, what I wanted was feedback, as far as pin assignments.
I can make a board for myself, but I don't get why there aren't others, well one in the works.
GRBL is interesting, but it's not flexible, not really modifiable because they have used every byte, and also it does port writes for speed, and that's not too transportable. Although there are comments, the code appears organized inscrutably. It would be easier for me to write a whole new G-code interpreter from Bresenham's Line Algorithm, than make surgical changes in what they have done, but I have too many irons in the fire, like this: http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic ... msg3213804
I don't understand what Machinekit is for. I see parallel port assignments, hardcoded at that. This was supposed to be ARM? I've seen more Beaglebone posts about it, not much about the RPi.
On one thread you pointed me to, there's 41 Pages of posts, so (shrugs shoulders) I guess no one is interest in running a CNC machine from a Raspberry Pi.
