Hi Ben,

Thanks for the info. 

We also have a Zyla sCMOS camera (CameraLink based, Bitflow card), so I'm trying to get that working on RHEL7 too. 

We have SDK3 3.12 (bitflow driver 9.05). I managed to get the kernel module built, and the example 'listdevices' program can see the camera ok. But the example 'image' program crashes the kernel and the machine reboots. 

I've requested the latest SDK 3.14 from Andor, and I'll give that a go. Andor usually ask you to update to the latest before they provide help anyway.

Cheers,
Matt
