Problem: aohtest hangs my system when I try to open a board.

I’ve just installed HMP 2.7 on my linux box running Fedora 12. Whenever I use aohtest and try to open a board or get system info (“board 0 open” or “system 0 get info”), my system hangs and I have to reboot:

[root@localhost]# ./aohtest

SYSTEM 0: Board listing (2 boards)
BOARD 0, Analog Gateway PCIe 16L [FPGA-1032] [PIK-01234567]
BOARD 1, PrimeNet Gateway PCI [FPGA-002f] [PIK-12345678]

> board 0 open


Solution:

I’ve seen this happen to a couple of people now. In those cases, the user had accidentally installed the package for RH4/CentOS4 instead of “For all other distributions (Red Hat / Cent OS 5, SUSE, Debian, etc)”.

** Note the difference in the names of the installers below. **

--> For all other distributions (Red Hat / Cent OS 5, SUSE, Debian, etc)
[root@localhost linux]# ./pikaaoh-2.7.15.-linux-installer

--> For RedHat Enterprise 4 and CentOS 4 (ONLY):
[root@localhost linux]# ./pikaaoh-2.7.15.-rh4linux-installer

Installing the proper package solves the problem.
