Hi,

This looks like the libxdp issue reported here: https://github.com/xdp-project/xdp-tools/issues/184
It looks like a fix was pushed to libxdp to address it. Could you try that out and see if it solves your issue?
Even without this fix you might find that the PMD still works, as it falls back to a legacy mode for loading the program - " Falling back to loading single prog without dispatcher"

Thanks,
Ciara
