Notes and Caveats  

Linux Distributions are validated with their default Linux kernel. However, NI products use Dynamic Kernel Module Support (DKMS), which enables customers to upgrade to newer kernels.


NI software products have standard life cycle policies that define release frequency and support. 


Refer to NI Hardware and Operating System Compatibility for more information about driver software and hardware support for various OSs.
