Re: NI 6009 usb in UBUNTU

Wont work (unless somebody's bored enough to do a full reverse engineering).

 

#1: NI is too vain to give us proper specs for decent developing drivers

#2: proprietary drivers never work reliably

#3: the USB subsystem is gpl-only since aeons - therefore proprietary drivers for USB devices are just illegal

#4: if you try them anyways, the license is immediately void - you'll loose the right to use the linux kernel and have to delete all copies.
