i have read some posts about run it on Linux, it seems it's not recommended to run it through WINE, and the Administrator also said they are working on a Linux driver, but i could not find it anywhere on website. I also want to know which Linux system it supports, and how?
my OS is Fedora 9 and 10..
Thank you very much.

The Linux driver is supplied by National Instruments and must be downloaded from their site. The link is http://joule.ni.com/nidu/cds/view/p/id/1074/lang/en and it is only supported on Mandriva, RedHat and SUSE. That is not to say it will not work on others but you will need a good knowedge of Linux.

We have purchased the Linux Labview development software and have succeeded in installing the NI-Visa drivers on different distros and machines and hope to have a version available for beta release 2nd quarter 2009.

One user is running the Cleverscope app on a VMWare virtual machine with XP, on a Linux host, without problems.

Any progress on the Linux support ? My PC is running Gentoo 64 bits, is there any chance that the NI driver will work on this platform ?

I haven't tried the NI Linux driver, but have had no trouble running my Cleverscope in a stripped down WinXP image run under Sun VirtualBox. I'm running a fairly vanilla Ubuntu Karmic release and using the VirtualBox package maintained in the Ubuntu repository. Very simple to install and set up. I'm running this on a 4 year old budget laptop and performance has been excellent. Even with very big frame sizes I get responsive updates.

For interest, we have an implementation using libUSB up and running under openSuse. We will release this when we have figured out how to make it easy to install. NI Visa is not used. Because libUSB is a user level package, no kernel recompile is necessary, and the implementation is Linux flavour independant.

Hello Bart,

Are there any progresses in this topic? I think, maybe I could help you somehow since I am a linux professional.

Kind regards

Hi,

Is it possible for my to get my hands on some stage of this libUSB code? Even a barely functioning version would be very helpful for my current efforts.
