Hi Lijuan,

Thank you for the suggestions.
After that is resolved we encounter another issue.

Currently, the kernel version we have is 5.4.0-53 and has a vfio-pci built
in. But we can not use the module from the nic_devbind.py.
Because we have vfio-pci drivers on the other machine's nic and trex
require both machines to have the same driver on the nic be used.
Do you know what we can approach to solving this issue?

Thank,
David
