Hi Mark,

I think I was able to obtain an image using the web interface.  I will verify this the next time I'm at the instrument.  When running the st.cmd command, the light on the back of the Eiger changes from red to green before spewing errors.

I did a little more digging.  Our Eiger firmware version is 1.6.2.  The version of ADEiger that we are attempting to use had in one of the RELEASE info files the mention of requiring firmware version 1.6.4+.  Do you think this could be our issue?  I've downloaded R2-1 which mentions 1.6.2 and am going to attempt to compile it with the areaDetector tree we currently have installed.

Thanks for your help!

Hi Jason,

 

I had a similar problem with our Eiger 500, but in my case it could only not find link_3 and link_4.  This is an expected error on the Eiger 500K because only link_1 and link_2 exist.  I fixed the driver for the 500K in this commit:

 

https://github.com/areaDetector/ADEiger/commit/50e13b24226e6eb702bd88a8dab16ed280c99137#diff-d1d617fd8427431b5658f2ef750e0a74

 

In your case it is not finding any of the links (link_1 through link_4), probably in the eigerDetector::eigerStatus() function.  That does not make sense to me.

 

Is the detector working otherwise?  Can you collect an image?

 

Mark

Hello,

 

I'm attempting to setup a Dectris Eiger R 1M with EPICS (3.15.5) and have compiled the latest version of asyn, ADSupport, ADCore, and ADEiger driver.  Upon running st.cmd, I receive the following errors:

If you need any other information, please let me know.

 

Any help figuring this out would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you.
