USB-6009 support in ni-daqmx 18.1?

Go to solution

I'm pretty new to linux, and to NI. I have a USB-6009 and I would like to use it with linux. The readme for the NI-DAQmx 18.1 linux driver doesn't seem to list any USB devices, so I was wondering if it was even possible to use the USB-6009 in linux. 


Is my only option to use the very outdated DAQmxBase 15? That would require that I downgrade my OS and mess around with 4-year-old libraries.

At the moment, there is no ability to use any USB DAQ hardware with the newer DAQmx drivers on Linux.


DAQmx Base 15 is the currently the best/only option for using that hardware in Linux.


Check out the DAQmx Base compatibility matrix though. It should support the current versions of CentOS and RHEL.

Thanks. I'll have to look at switching from SUSE. I wasn't aware of that matrix.
