    IEGD Driver on 64bit Linux

    Green Belt

      Hi,

       

      I have the IEGD driver working correctly on a 32 bit CentOS 5.2  installation but I cannot install the driver on a 64 bit version of the OS. When I load the module the machine crashes. I cannot find any mention in the documentation of 64bit Linux support.

       

      My question is, is the IEGD driver supposed to be able to be installed on a 64bit linux system?

       

      Regards,

       

      Brad

                      Dear Brad,

                       

                      we did some research today and neither in the INTEL Download Center nor in the IEGD documentation 64bit support is mentioned. I assume you already had a look there too. We contacted INTEL directly and our distributer today for further assistance.

                       

                      I´ll keep you informed here...

                          Hi Florian,

                           

                          Thanks for looking into this. I had already looked through all the IEGD documentation etc and have tried installing the 32bit binaries without luck (as expected). I have dealt directly with MEN while on this project through Mathias Beer and he knows all the details of the project.If you wish to contact me directly, my email address is brad.christiansen at thalesgroup.com.au.

                           

                          Cheers,

                          Brad

                              Hello Brad

                              I received the following message from INTEL this morning:

                               

                              "IEGD doesn't support 64bit Linux distributions and officially, IEGD doesn't support and isn't validated for CentOS*. At times, customers can get non-supported distributions to function, but there isn't any support if there are problems.
                              I'll close this issue now as 64bit Linux isn't supported."

                               

                              Best Regards,

                              Florian Rauh
