I have installed dpdk 18.08 on a Centos 7 machine, which has the kernel
source installed.

I built dpdk using:

$ make -j T=x86_64-native-linuxapp-gcc install
<snip>
Build complete [x86_64-native-linuxapp-gcc]
Installation cannot run with T defined and DESTDIR undefined

I want to interface dpdk to a HP NIC that uses the Intel X722 chipset. So I
then run:

$ /opt/dpdk/dpdk-18.08/usertools/dpdk-devbind.py -b igb_uio `lspci |
grep X722 | awk '{print $1}'`
Error - no supported modules(DPDK driver) are loaded

I think that this error means that the DPDK kernel module is not installed.

How can I fix this?

probably igb_uio kernel module is not loaded, run lsmod to check if 
igb_uio is loaded

I usually use dpdk-setup.sh script from the dpdk source to compile and 
load igb_uio, and bind the NIC to igb_uio. otherwise, you may need to 
setup proper environment varibles to find and load the igb_uio module 
properly, I think distribution like Centos or Ubuntu has the proper DPDK 
script to load and bind NIC to DPDK drivers.

Thanks for your answer. Identifying the igb_uio module as necessary really
helped me. Module is loaded now.
