No visaconf or ni-daqmx provided in NI Linux Device Drivers (CentOS 7)

Hello all, we've recently purchased LabVIEW 2020 and are looking to trial our current Windows LabVIEW environment on a Linux environment using CentOS 7.9. I've been able to get LabVIEW 2020 installed without any issues, along with the add-ons: 'Control Design and Simulation Package and MathScript RT Package


According to the readme's on the NI website I also need to install the 'NI Linux Device Drivers', which I have done for CentOS 7 however I'm still missing utilities such as visaconf and nidaqmx


Would anyone be able to navigate me in the right direction on how to get these missing utilities? Thank you.

Hello and thank you for your input.


I'm not trying to install the drivers offline, however in the provided link. The line regarding creating the .repo file (though wrong) did help me identify the correct contents of the .repo file:


name=NI Linux Software 2020


I've followed the provided instructions multiple times now and installed so many random packages from NI, and I'm still getting this annoying error message when loading visaconf even after running $ sudo dkms autoinstall failed to initialize
Verify that nipalk.ko is built and loaded.
