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.
