fedora 11 nidaqmx

I've been testing an app for the PCI-6224 on Fedora 9 (32-bit) and am building an instrument which is powered by a mini-ITX w/ Intel 330 atom processor.  I thought I would try the latest (Fedora 11) while I was at it, but can drop back to 9 if necessary.

 

I cannot seem to install NIDAQ800_RedHat.  When I...

 

mount -o loop /root/NI/NIDAQ800_RedHat.iso /mnt
cd /mnt
./INSTALL

 

I get the error...

 

Kernel source in /lib/modules/2.6.29.4-167.fc11.i686.PAE/source does not appear to be
configured for the 2.6.29.4-167.fc11.i686.PAE kernel.

 

There is a number of posts addressing this error, mostly centered on SuSe which call for 'make cloneconfig'.  That is not present on Fedora.  I haven't seen this before in the several times I have done this on Fedora (first on F7, then F9) and now F11.  Could this be associated with the PAE kernel?  Any suggestions?

 

Thanks,

John Navratil

I went a little further in following threads and found the suggestion to copy the boot config file over the .config in the kernel source directory.  They were identical.  Thereafter...

 

 make modules_prepare

 

resulting in a failure with message ...

 

 No rule to make target `missing-syscalls'.  Stop.

Installed Fedora 10 with similar result.

Hi John,

 

One good resource we have available for Linux-specific issues is the Linux Users Community Page.  The community is made up of a number of developers and Linux users who work with NI products.  Perhaps somebody there could offer some more insight.

 

I wish I could provide more advice but I have never tried installing DAQmx to Fedora before (keep in mind that it is not an officially supported distribution).

 

 

Best Regards,

John

John,

 

Thanks for the heads-up on the new (to me, anyway) community.  I think I've found the core problem... I should be using the new (to me, anyway)  DAQmx801f0.is, rather than the older NIDAQ800_RedHat.iso.

 

I'll write up my solution in the Linux Users Community when I've tested it.

Hi John,

 

I just realized I linked the wrong page for the Linux Community.  Here's the correct link:
