    iqv driver Connection to QV driver failed - please reinstall it!

    kongkon

      iQV driver is the backend driver for supporting the firmware(actually the flash) download tools on intel Ethernet adapter cards. eeupdate and lanconf tools use the iqv driver.

      I am trying to rebuild this driver, and once I successfully build this driver, after I load this iqv module into Linux, I'm getting this message from both these tools.

      I'm using the latest version of 1.2.0.4 of iqv driver.

       

      However the older driver (version: 1.1.4.17) with the older tools works fine.

       

      Anyone has any idea why this eeupdate or lanconf complaining about this message: Connection to QV driver failed - please reinstall it!

       

      Thanks

          Posting more details from the other message I opened. That message is not visible somehow, hence adding the details to this post.

           

          The eeupdate and the lanconf tool is not working. These tools need the IQV driver. However once I load the latest driver, these tools errors out with the following messages:

          Connection to QV driver failed - please reinstall it!

           

          This output is with the older iqv driver version: 1.1.4.17

          [root@xrsdev29 ~]# ./lanconf64e /VERSION

          Connection to QV driver failed - please reinstall it!

          Now, if I run the older tool, it does not complain. However, in both these cases the lanconf tool should have complained, as the iqv driver is not loaded in either of these cases.

          [root@xrsdev29 ~]# lsmod |grep iqv

          [root@xrsdev29 ~]#

           

          After I load the iqv driver (latest):

           

          [root@xrsdev29 ~]# modprobe iqv

           

          [root@xrsdev29 ~]# modinfo iqv

          Driver version do not match, please reinstall driver

          So, why the latest IQV driver does not work with the latest eeupdate and lanconf tools, whereas older driver with older tools works!
