LSDAQ not finding PCIe 6323 and PCIe 6509 CentOS 7

I am having trouble getting my I/O up and running on my CentOS machine.  When I run lspci -vv I can see both of my cards and their names, but lsdaq returns no devices.  As a note, I am using a PCIe expansion chassis, but all of the other cards in the expansion are working correct.

 

I am running CentOS 7.3, NI driver 15.0.0-f1.

I have tried installing NI-KAL 15.1 but that made things worse by deleting a bunch of executables including niSystemReport.  I performed a manual removal of all NI packages and reinstalled from scratch.  Attached is the relevant results from lspci and the complete niSystemReport (until it stopped running for not being able to find /proc/ksyms).

 

Any tips or things I am missing?

Install visa-17 for this is the best VISA .

 

 

First update Centos 7 after that install visa follow the instructions.

 

Second. Check if you have the permissions as a root.

 

I can show to you how to add root permission.

Re: LSDAQ not finding PCIe 6323 and PCIe 6509 CentOS 7

OK.  So I re-installed CentOS from scratch, then patched it to kernel 3.10.0-514.10.2.el7.x86_64 and put in the devel libraries too.  I then installed the 15.0 base drivers and then put in NI-VISA 17.  I still get the same results from lsdaq which is that nothing is found.

 

Edit:  I have run all of these commands as root and as a basic user with no change to the results.

Re: LSDAQ not finding PCIe 6323 and PCIe 6509 CentOS 7

ok!
Please tell me if you found as a root or not. In another words, you can see any device when you run visa-17 as a root?

 

Do you know what I'm saying?

 

In terminal you can type:

sudo su

your password of course

 

cd  /usr/local/vxipnp/linux/NIvisa

 

after that you can type  'ls' to check files

 

than type      ./visaconf &

 

 

Tell me what happen.

 

with you want, you can type inside:

 

cd  /usr/local/vxipnp/linux/NIvisa

 

in this moment type   chmod -R 777*

must be sudo.

Re: LSDAQ not finding PCIe 6323 and PCIe 6509 CentOS 7

OK!

 

If you found any device as a root (i hope you can) you need to type sudo su (your password again) 

then type gpasswd -a username dialout (your name).

then reboot the system and all is fine.

 

oh! I forgot to say, when you install Centos 7 you must flag that your user as a admin.. did you do that?

Re: LSDAQ not finding PCIe 6323 and PCIe 6509 CentOS 7

Standby...It looks like I may have 2 problems.  Problem 1 is that the 6323 card is not supported on Linux at all, so it shouldn't be surprising that it doesn't show up in the driver.  Problem 2 is what driver I am using.  According to the driver and support page, the 6509 should be using the 8.0.2mx driver, not the 15.0 driver that is at the top of the driver list.  I'm putting a fresh install of CentOS on my machine now and will put the 8.0.2 driver on as soon as its done and update the thread.

 

Driver support page can be found at:

Re: LSDAQ not finding PCIe 6323 and PCIe 6509 CentOS 7

Update...It looks like neither of these cards are supported in Linux.  The 8.0.2 driver is for the old kernel.  Back to the drawing board on I/O configuration.  Thank you for trying to help.

Remember: only buy HW w/ *free* (-> GPL!) drivers. Proprietary driver can never work reliably (this has always been so on Linux). You've been lucky that it do ugly crashes or even destroyed your filesystem.

 

Ah, I see some usb symbols in the proprietary modules. On not-so-old kernels (IIRC since some early 3.x, perhaps even earlier) this is an direct license violation, which voids the license completely (IOW: you're not allowed to use Linux anymore) !
