NI Visa on Scientific Linux 6.2 on Virtual Machine

I'm having problems during the Installation of NI Visa on Scientific Linux 6.2

The installation itself runs without an problem, updateNIDrivers also runs without

an error. but when trying to run visaconf it get the following output:

./source/lib/IntelDataCollector.cpp(1013): Intel: CPUID(4) cache results did not all merge with CPUID(2).

./source/lib/IntelDataCollector.cpp(985): CPUID(4) provided cache that CPUID(2) did not. Intel cache parse may need an update.

libnipalu.so failed to initialize

Perhaps you need to run updateNIDrivers

Aborted

when running updateNIDrivers again, it updates the drivers again (allways does that, no matter how often I start it)

How do I update the Intel cache parse? And does anyone know how to solve these problems?

Re: NI Visa on Scientific Linux 6.2 on Virtual Machine

I think it has something to do with "libnipalu.so failed to initialized"

Is there anything in /var/log/syslog that might be interesting to share here?

"cat /var/log/syslog | grep ni" ?

Re: NI Visa on Scientific Linux 6.2 on Virtual Machine

Same old problem: NI folks don't know how to properly do DMA on Linux. The driver is conceptionally broken.
