I am having a time trying to get LabVIEW fully functional in Linux. Count me in as another who requests LabVIEW to work in Debian based system..... I am quite new at LabVIEW so excuse me for my ignorance on this but the developers in my group are used to using MAX for configuring hardware and exclusively have used Windows for LabVIEW development. So for this reason I am thinking DAQmx will give them more familiar tools (not MAX) than using DAQmx Base for our hardware. Most if not all the hardware we have is supported in DAQmx so am I correct to be trying to get DAQmx to work for performance and ease of hardware configuration instead of DAQmx Base?
The following is what I did prior to my attempt at loading DAQmx 8.0.1. Installed openSUSE 10.3, Installed LabVIEW 8.6.1, installed NI-KAL 1.9, installed DAQmx Base 3.2
linux-f6ir:~ # uname -r
I followed the steps above and everything worked until updateNIDrivers. When I attempted updateNIDrivers:
Uninstalling NI-KAL (nikal): done
/bin/rm -rf objects
NI-KAL update failed.
/bin/cp nikal.c objects/nikal.c
/bin/cp nikal.h objects/nikal.h
make -C /lib/modules/126.96.36.199-0.1-pae/source SUBDIRS=/usr/local/natinst/nikal/s

Installing NI-KAL (nikal): Starting NI-KAL failed!
make: *** [install] Error 1

updateNIDrivers should be called again after fixing the problem.
Include the file /tmp/niSystemReport.out.gz when contacting
National Instruments for support.

I was able to get the updateNIdrivers to working by removing a couple sticks memory. Still have the general question if DAQmx is desireable over DAQmx Base however.

This was already answered a while ago here so never mind my question.
