Hi

I am trying to run the testpmd app as but I get the following errors:
EAL: VFIO could not be initialized
EAL: Cannot open /dev/uio0: No such file or directory
EAL: Error - exiting with code: 1
  Cause: Requested device 0000:07:00.0 cannot be used

lsmod shows that the uio module is installed.
Is there anything that's missing?

Thanks!
Malveeka

Hi Malveeka,

To be sure that you should have [uio, igb_uio] or [uio, uio_pci_generic]
or [vfio] module loaded.

Thanks,
Michael

I do have the uio and igb_uio modules loaded.
For my issue, I found a workaround by manually creating /dev/uio0 using
mknod.
But I still get the vfio error.

If I try "sudo modprobe vfio" but that gives an error that Module vfio not
found.
I tried looking for vfio.ko in the dpdk source tree as well but could not
find that module.
How can I install the vfio module?

Thanks!
Malveeka

VFIO is supplied by kernel :)
if you use uio then vfio can be ignored. It is just another way of
things in new kernel(version > 3.6).
