I've just updated my Linux kernel and went to update my NI device drivers by running /usr/local/bin/updateNIDrivers but the command fails and returns the following:
Configuring NI-KAL for kernel version 3.10.0-862.el7.x86_64...
Building module nikal...
nikal: CC [M] /var/lib/nikal/3.10.0-862.el7.x86_64/nikal/nikal.o
nikal: /var/lib/nikal/3.10.0-862.el7.x86_64/nikal/nikal.c:2043:10: error: GENL_ID_GENERATE undeclared here (not in a function)
nikal: ERROR: failed to build nikal
nikal: ERROR: NI-KAL update failed.
nikal: ERROR: make of nikal kernel module failed, not installing kernel module.
nikal: ERROR: updateNIDrivers should be called again after fixing the problem.
nikal: ERROR: Update of National Instruments drivers failed.
