Improved Linux support for Cronologic measurement boards

In the world of digital measurement and data acquisition systems, the integration of hardware components into existing operating systems is often a challenge. Linux users in particular are often faced with the problem that support for specialized hardware such as measurement cards is not always optimal. We have addressed this issue and have now introduced a significant improvement in Linux support for our measurement cards, which is of particular benefit to developers.

Easier Installation

We have improved the installation of the Linux driver through the use of the DKMS (Dynamic Kernel Module Support). The kernel module is automatically recompiled with kernel updates.

Clear instructions for integration

Our step-by-step guide to integrating cronologic DAQ boards into Linux systems makes it much easier for users to install and configure the hardware correctly.

Extended compatibility with Linux distributions

We have extended our Linux support to most popular 64-bit distributions. Tested and fully supported on:

- Ubuntu

- Debian

- Fedora

- CentOS

- openSUSE

... and other derivatives distributions.

This broad compatibility ensures that a wide range of users can benefit from improved support, regardless of the Linux distribution chosen. The extensive testing guarantees reliable performance and compatibility of the cronologic measurement cards under the various systems.
