Problem loading gpibprtk module
Posted 03 December 2009 - 01:32 PM
I have just installed lv2009 on SLED 10 SP2. Pure lv works fine, but "VISA find" on GPIB0 (which mapps to an internal GPIB-PCI bridge) crashes lv and returns something like "gpibprtk" module missing. The same happens if I try to run "interactive" from gpibexplorer. I can not find anything in the local file tree that seems to be a loadable module named gpibprtk.
Any ideas or suggestions on this appreciated!

The NIKAL NIPAL are both loaded (seen using lsmod) and LV itself works fine. I have tried updateNIDrivers and installing the drivers supplied with the GPIB-PCI bridge without success.
Could you post the exact error message printed when LabVIEW crashes?

Here is some possibly useful data:
lsmod | grep -i ni nipalk 1843664 2 nikal 91592 3 nipalk usbcore 150312 5 nikal,usbhid,uhci_hcd,ehci_hcd
Labview crashes when executing "VISA Find Resource"
linux-rrel:~ # /usr/local/natinst/LabVIEW-2009/labview &  5787 linux-rrel:~ # FATAL: Module gpibprtk not found. + Aborted /usr/local/natinst/LabVIEW-2009/labview linux-rrel:~ #
Interactive GPIB tool crashes the same way (on startup):
linux-rrel:~ # /usr/local/natinst/ni4882/bin/gpibintctrl FATAL: Module gpibprtk not found. Aborted linux-rrel:~ #
I have attached the simple code that crashes LabVIEW. It is saved in lv2009 format
Hope this helps. And thanks so far

By the way, that site (the NI Linux community website) is the best place to post these issues because a lot of people post there with NI driver issues and help each other figure it out, even on unsupported Linux distributions.
