Unable to detect 7842r on openSUSE Leap 15.0 linux kernel

I installed the drivers on the linux kernel 4.9.115-rt93-lp150.11-default (patch) but when I run `lsni -v` no RIO board is detected.  Help!

Could you verify this document  to confirm that you follow its instructions correctly when installing the drivers?

I am required to setup two cards, NI 6704 and NI 7542r. The 6704 was detected via command `nillsdev -verbose`.

The 7542r was not detected when i tested out command `lsni -v`
lspci also did not show the necessary 7542r. I am guessing the board is not working.

So these two cards are being used in a PXI chassis with a PXI controller right? 

Could you tell us the controller model?

I would like to verify the compatibility of our products to each other and also the compatibility with openSUSE Leap 15.0.

This document has a table to compare PXI and Linux Desktop Operating System Compatibility. OpenSUSE Leap 15.0. is not listed there. 

Could you use a supported version of OpenSUSE?


This is just to ensure that the software environment is supported so we can rule out any issues on that layer. I would rather make an extra test than have you purchasing a new PXI card without necessity.

I am using it as a PCIe not a PXIe and directly connecting it to the CPU/Motherboard.

Yes from the link you shared, Leap 15.0 is not mentioned. Although Leap 15.0 is the latest OpenSUSE version and I would prefer to stay on this version since the previous versions of OpenSUSE had other software compiler issue for the application I am using.


Apologies for the late response.

when I execute the command 


I get the following result

b4:00.0 Unassigned class [ff00]:National Instruments PCIe-7842R

 Can you explain what this means?
