Re: failed to build nikal error on RHEL7.5 (3.10.0-862.3.2.el7.x86_64)


Tom D.,


That's good that the do_munmap() error has been reported, but that was not my issue here.  The issue here is incompatibilities between the RHEL kernel (3.10) that NI claims they support, and the NIKAL driver NI wrote.  More specifically, it is obvious that no NI employee has formally tested the NIKAL module with RHEL7.5 because genl_register_family_with_ops() is deprecated in this version of redhat so the script nikal.c would never compile.  NI should either a) stop claiming support for RHEL, or b) fix the bugs.  I am a scientist, and for me to be fixing your software engineers' bugs is ridiculous (I won't ask them to do my plasma physics for me).  Just my two cents.


Thanks for the response,

-Tom L.
