Assuming this is what OP is trying to install, unless they've done a LOT of backporting, that's far too old to work with an Apollo Lake device. The eMMC controller on that chipset barely worked with 4.8, and only became totally usable around 4.12 timeframe.

Roger that. Need confirmation from the OP if that is the exact mini PC.

Checking on the page of LinuxCNC, they have an installation image which is based on Wheezy. Nothing newer.

Apparently this is one of the developers which stick to something old, instead of forcing you to update to the latest and unobtainable version of something. They are even offering it for Ubuntu 6.0 and 8.0 ...

But in this case it might run you into HW compatibility problems. So either use old hardware, or try to install LinuxCNC on a newer Debian version.

In order to point down any problems, download and try to install Wheezy from the Debian site as a test. Either it gives the same problem and then you know Wheezy is not compatible. Or it installs and you know it is a problem in the LinuxCNC version. In that can, maybe you can install plain Wheezy and install LinuxCNC (the package, not the image) on top of that.

Huh? WHAT are you actually trying to install???? Ubuntu, Debian Wheezy, or LinuxCNC Wheezy image??? WHICH ONE??
Maybe I'm misunderstanding the entire process. Essentially at this point, trying to get LinuxCNC on just about any linux OS. To my understanding after installing ubuntu, I would be simply able to install the program, in this case by boot order prioritization.

No expert and I was trying to figure out the steps required to building linuxcnc on a current distribution when I came across this thread. Hopefully it works for you.

I don't think Wheezy has a module for the drive controller in the Byte3. USB has been standardized for a while, so Wheezy can see that drive.
