LinuxCNC for Home Hobbyists - Ep 17 - Compiling a Realtime Kernel for LinuxCNC

In this episode I show you how to compile a Realtime Kernel using the PREEMPT_RT kernel patch. I show you where to download the patch, the kernel source code, how to apply the patch, configure the kernel to use it. Next I show you how to compile the kernel and modules and finally install the kernel. I also show you a quick edit to the GRUB boot loader config file to force the grub menu to show on boot up, so if you do have problems you can boot back into your original kernel. A written tutorial is also available on my website on the LinuxCNC / EMC2 page under the heading of Wirrten Tutorials.
