NI-KAL Driver Compatibility

Publish Date: May 01, 2019 | 1 Ratings | 3.00 out of 5 | Print

Overview

NI-KAL interfaces between the Linux kernel and the National Instruments drivers or software installed on your machine. This interface allows NI software to function with multiple versions of the Linux kernel by compiling the driver against the Linux kernel when it is installed. The following table outlines which version(s) of NI-KAL have been validated with which Linux distributions.

Note: Beginning in 2018, NI Linux Device Drivers provides NI-KAL automatically, and there is no need to install or configure the driver interface manually.
