With regards to your operating system, something to make note of is that National Instruments only supports the following distributions of Linux: Mandriva Linux Official, Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS, and SUSE Linux. This support is provided for 32-bit, x86 platforms only.
Please realize that the forums are a world-wide community in which anybody can post onto. With this setup, it can sometimes be difficult to discern what the actual question may be as meaning can be lost over simple text. What one person may think as obvious may not be so obvious on the other end.
If you require a higher support experience than what's provided on National Instruments' forums, I would recommend calling into the Applications Engineering department. There an engineer can take personal ownership of your issue and reduce misunderstanding.
I'm pleased to hear you have found your solution.
