upgrading python on raspbian
I'm not a python expert by a long ways.
I have built the linuxcnc-master, which is the development branch of
linuxcnc, a machine control program to run most metal carving machines.
Lathes, milling machines, anything you can motorize, LinuxCNC can run.
This requires a preempt-rt kernel which I've managed to build and
install, all on a pi-4b running raspbian buster, the armfh-v7l version
of debian 10.1.
But linuxcnc is quite elderly code, some of it going back to before there
was a linux, so despite being actively developed right now for x86 type
hardware but has quite a list of missing dependencies I cannot satisfy
from the raspbian repos.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
linuxcnc-uspace : Depends: python2.7-glade2 but it is not installable or
python-glade2 but it is not going to be installed
Depends: python-gtksourceview2 but it is not going to be installed
Depends: python-vte but it is not installable
Depends: python-gst0.10 but it is not installable
Depends: python-xlib but it is not going to be installed
Depends: python-gtkglext1 but it is not going to be installed
Depends: python-configobj but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: hostmot2-firmware-all but it is not installable
Can anyone supply a list of python3 packages that will cover the
functions contained in the above list?, and I will attempt to edit the
linuxcnc srcs to use the more modern code base?
Ignore the hostmot2-firmware-all package as its available, and may not
be actually required with the interface card in actual use. It has its
own fpga firmware already installed.
Thank you all.
