I am trying to reinstall Mach 4 Industrial on a HP/compaq DC 7800 it had failed to install before and I upgraded to a GT-710 video card still freezes. Can't even Cntrl/alt/delete have to remove power. attached is a snapshot of my environment. Any suggestions?

Thanks Ron, if you need testers for anything Linux related consider me a willing participant. Opensuse 13.2 Kde4

I understand from reading various posts and replies on Mach3 andMach4 boards that wizards for mach4 will be standalone like the NFS Mill wizard.

Will there also be a turn wizard for mach4?

Will the Mach4 wizards run under Linux?

I am finding that Windows contributes greatly to the intermittent, unrepeatable quirks that I experience in both Mach3 and Mach4


I have had that runaway with a M3 startup also. I think I fixed it with changing the step/dir active high/low settings. I haven't been playing with that for awhile.

Sorry Jeff, you seemed to be the only one providing any type of support for the Smooth Stepper so I thought you worked for them. The same topic has been raised on the warp9 board several times.

Yeah, I agree, why did he ask for the xml if he was only going to spout off about reading the documentation which we have done a hundred times. I am beginning to think he doesn't have a clue either.

Did you ever get a response from Jeff about your configuration xml?

Did you ever get the USB SmoothStepper to control spindle speed or did you give up on it too?

Thanks Tweakie. I contacted Steve Stallings and purchased PMDX 411. I'm finally getting to set up Mach4 with it.

Mach4 General Discussion / USB Smooth Stepper & Mach 4

I have not seen or heard anything about the USB smooth stepper being supported under Mach4 and what features that will be supported.
Since parallel port support is limited to older machines and 32bit architecture I am looking for a supported Mach4 USB motion controller.
If anyone has experience with alternatives I would be interested in your conclusions.
