We now offer a 'universal' driver to control of PXI/PCI cards that will work with the vast majority of Linux distributions without the need for compilation for a specific target. This is achieved by using udev and mapping the cards into user space, removing the need for a kernel object compiled for the particular kernel in use. Udev was made part of the standard Linux kernel somewhere about kernel version 2.6 and so this driver should work with any 2.6 or later kernel. The supplied package provides both 32 and 64-bit versions of the library.
To install the driver, please download the driver package from the following link:
Once the driver package has been downloaded and extracted, run inst.sh to install the driver package on your system. As this
installs to the system, the script must be ran as root. These libraries are for use with C/C++ and use the same function
declarations as used in Pilpxi under Windows.
We are prepared to work with any client to achieve a working Linux solution, subject to availability of the target distribution. Please contact us for further information.
