Without building a new one, thats what I can get from the 10-04.4 LTS 
repo's, linuxcnc requiring an RTAI patched kernel to function in real time, 
where IRQ responses above 5 u-secs are pure poison to the process.

Those patches are extremely invasive.  Our release wranglers are working on 
that but it might be into 2014 by the time its ready for prime time.  In 
the meantime, its been found that the $45 BeagleBone Black, once a  
suitable I/O cape has been produced, has, because of its quasi independent 
I/O bits & pieces, has more than enough performance to run this application 
quite well.  So at some point, its possible the whole project might switch 
away from the x86 processors completely.  Whether the camunits-emc kit can 
be built to run on the ARM's remains to be seen.

I will give those a try when I have light for the camera again.

Thank you Reimar.

Cheers, Gene
