Hi Matt,

we at ESS have been using 2.102 (IIRC I added that one to the ADAndor) with USB2.0 based Newton, iDus and Luca cameras for some time now. Our Linux flavor is CentOS7 which might be similar to RHEL7.

I did have quite some trouble getting the cameras to be detected by the Andor SDK, after the IOC would be killed. The Andor SDK would leave behind a shm object that would not get removed by the SDK in that case which resulted in subsequent IOC restarts to fail to detect the camera (until Linux OS would be rebooted). I did find a way to solve the issue by removing the offending lingering shm object using ipcrm tool, prior to starting on IOC.

I can provide more details about the CentOS7 kernel and system config if you need.

Cheers,
//hinko

Subject: updating ADAndor from RHEL6 to RHEL7

Hi,

Has anyone experience updating the ADAndor support from RHEL6 to RHEL7?

We have an Andor iKon-M (USB2.0 based), that we used with ADAndor on RHEL6 using SDK 2 version 2.93 (locally installed, not using the version distributed with ADAndor).

The same SDK version doesn’t seem to work on RHEL7. I can send details if anyone is interested. It may just be too old though.

There are two more modern SDK versions currently distributed with ADAndor (at least, the shared libraries). Is anyone using either of these versions (2.99 and 2.102) on RHEL7?

Cheers,
Matt
