I'm a newbie with the openPOWERLINK stack and am trying to run a few combinations of the demo applications found in the distribution.
I have a laptop and a desktop PC, and want to run both the demo_mn and demo_cn applications on either of them.
On my laptop I have a dual-boot configuration with Windows 8 and Ubuntu Linux, whilst on the desktop I have only Windows XP.
When I run the demos on Windows on my laptop everything works just fine (both when I run the MN on the laptop and the CN on the desktop and viceversa), but when I try and run a demo on Linux it says it finds no supported interface, which seems legit since my Ethernet card is not one of the supported...
But (and here comes the point where I might have completely mistaken the stack description) I think there's a way to compile the stack, on Linux, so that it uses the PCAP library, avoiding hardware compatibility issues.
Am I wrong? If not, how can I do that?
I'm sorry for the length of the post and for some grammar mistakes I may have done.
Thanks in advance!
Is libpcap-dev packet installed on your system?
Have you configured your demo for using the PCAP based stack library (CMake option: CFG_BUILD_KERNEL_STACK = Link to Application)
Did you run the demo with sudo?
Well, I must admit I hadn't tried that. I had run CMake with no configuration options.
But, even after re-running CMake with that option set to that value and re-making the demo... Still no results. It still says that there is likely an unsupported Ethernet card or that the kernel module isn't loaded.
Should I delete the previously created app in the bin directory? Or am I missing something else?
Thank you again
Can you please update us on your progress?
Were you able to make it run in the meantime?
