Trouble with NI USB-6008 in Linux CentOS

Hey all,


I am trying to use my USB-6008 to do some basic analog I/O for me using LabView 2020 in CentOS Stream 8. I have DAQmx 20.1 installed and am having trouble getting the computer to see the daq.


The output of nilsdev is empty

The output of lsni -v seems to find the device:

Scanning localhost for devices...

I'm used to using NI-MAX in windows to get everything going, so I'm feeling a little over my head here haha... can anyone help me figure out what to do next?

As already stated, have a look at the Linux DAQmx-Readme

USB-6008, like nearly all USB-devices, is NOT supported by this driver!
