Hi, I am currently using Contec GPIB(F) cards for a number of different testers. I am interested in running Linux on the PC that the test equipment is hooked up to. Does any one know if the Contec cards are compatible with NI488.2 driver that exist for Linux??
I am looking for setting up a GPIB board under Linux. The board is a National Instrument NI488.2 PCII, and I am running RedHat 6.0 Linux distribution (kernel version 2.2.5-15). I tried to install two drivers, one from the Linux Lab Project (linux-gpib2.05 at http://www.llp.fu-berlin.de/) and another one from National Insrtument (nigpib-linux.0.4 at http://www.ni.com/linux/ni488dl.html). They are both supposed to work under linux 2.2.x, but the installation failed in both cases at a very early stage (for the llp driver, the compilation fails, an for the ni one, the loading of module /lib/modules/18.104.22.168/misc/nigpib.o fails).0 Was anyone succesfull installing a GPIB driver for a similar board (PCII) under linux 2.2.x ? What driver did you use ? All comments and advices are very welcomes !
