NI 6216 USB linux driver

Dear,

 

i am a bit confused we just bought a 6216 USB DAQ, the doc says it is supported by linux but when you install the latest driver it is not supporte?

 

Why? it is not a brand new one model?

 

Please could you give a driver version that support USB 6216 for linux even an old one to be compliant with your documentation.

 

Best regards

Dear,

 

before buying my DAQ i read a loyt ouf your website...

 

https://www.ni.com/pdf/manuals/ni-linux-device-drivers-2022-q4.html

 

Basically, you say to people "you can find drivers for Linux" and at the end the DAQNX driver does not support (anymore) the USB 6216.

 

The  USB 6216 support dor linux was in the  DAQNX BASE driver that you do not even maintain anymore.

 

Basically you sell items for which you do not support anymore the driver.

 

I spent 2 days trying to  install on ubuntu the DAQNX BASE  15 driver (conversion using alien). At the end i get the message 

 

--------------------------------------------

lsdaq

Detecting National Instruments DAQ Devices
Found the following DAQ Devices:
/etc/natinst/nidaqmxbase/bin/daqmxbase_listdevices: error while loading shared libraries: liblvrtdark.so.15.0: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64

-------------------------------------------------------------

 

I know you will tell me this is not the good architecture! but i did what i could following the NI forum (and 20years of experience on linux)

 

So please give instructions to install NI USB 6216 DAQNX base on ubuntu to be compliant with your commitents  

 

Please

So, your reply was addressing "NI" whereas the folks replying on this forum are fellow NI product users trying to help each other out in their free time. I empathize with the difficulties you're facing, let us wait and see if other fellow users could guide you on this issue.

 

On the other hand, if you wish to talk to a NI representative, you can contact them through their official mode https://www.ni.com/my-support/s/service-requests

 

Note: This is not an official medium of communication with "NI" though occasionally some NI Employees respond to some posts.
