Re: Installing NI-488.2 on Redhat 7.5
I am using ni-pal-18.104.22.168152-0+f0.x86_64 on Redhat 7.4.
My nikal verion is 18.2.0f0, i.e. precisely ni-kal-22.214.171.124152-0+f0.noarch
All the NI compatibility docs referencing ver. 18.2 supports Redhat 7.*, i.e. RH 7.4 and 7.5.
I am finding problems communicating with my gpib devices.
I kept my gpib.ini file in /etc/ni4882/gpib.ini
Note: attempting to restart nipal caused problems:
# /etc/init.d/nipal restart
error: unable to unload nipalk
Q1. Where should I keep gpib.ini file?
Note: Once I copied my gpib.ini to /etc/ni4882/gpib.ini I can run the "gpibexplorer" to browse my gpib devices.
I have gpib.ini in the following locations:
What is the purpose of the /etc/gpibrc ?
Appreciate any insight.
