To install PathPilot on non-Tormach machines:

  1. Buy disc from Tormach p/n 35246 http://www.tormach.com/store/index.php?app=ecom&ns=prodshow&ref=35246
  2. PathPilot kernel doesn't like sandy bridge motherboards, use older pentium (I'm using E2200)
  3. Buy Mesa board 5i25 from http://store.mesanet.com
  4. Find firmware for mesa board - firmware must match your breakout board
    1. You CANNOT change the pinouts of the mesa board via software, ONLY firmware sets the pinouts
    2. many breakout boards are included and may work - mine required custom firmware that mesa wrote for me - if you need custom firmware - ask PCW_Mesa on linuxcnc forums.
  5. Install mesa board and install path pilot via DVD.
  6. Hopefully everything boots up properly - it will flash mesa board with tormach firmware - that's ok we will change it later.
