Question Drivers for National Instruments GPIB Card not Working


I am running a terminal at work with Linux Kernel 2.6.11-smp. Using Xandros and trying to make the drivers work for a National Instruments ISA GPIB card (IEEE 488). I am using a driver that I downloaded from SourceForge at the following
URL: linux_gpib.sourceforge.net

I have been able to run the ./configure script and 'make' to compile the package, but when I run 'make install' I recieve the following messages at the end of the installation.

/usr/bin/install: installing multiple files, but last argument, `/gpib/cb7210.ko' is not a directory (for several such files)
and
make[4]: *** [install-data-hook] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory `/home/lee/linux-gpib-3.2.05/driver'
make[3]: *** [install-data-am] Error 2
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/lee/linux-gpib-3.2.05/driver'
make[2]: *** [install-am] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/lee/linux-gpib-3.2.05/driver'
make[1]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/lee/linux-gpib-3.2.05/driver'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

I have followed the directions from the INSTALL file, but have had no luck making the drivers work. Please let me know your thoughts on possible solutions.

To use the ' make install ' option you need to have root access. You can configure and run the make command but to install you need root access. Just type su and enter root;'s password then type the ' make install ' command

Unfortunately, I did run the make install option as root and that is when I got to the error messages listed in my original posting. Any other ideas?

No other ideas those are the usual reponse I get when I forget to su in after do my ./configure and make commands. Only other suggest is contact the creator of the file for help. Good luck.

MadScience314,
you need to track down the first error (probably first three) not the last. that will tell you the cause of the errors that follow.
try something like this:

./configure > /home/lee/Desktop/log_install_errors

or where ever is convenient to you. you will then have to open that file, which will appear on your desktop, to know when to type appropriate responses. then close down the log file before hitting enter. there will be a LOT of text there, just go to the bottom of the file each time for responses.

post the first error here or figure it out yourself.
