This error indicates that one of the main NI hardware services on Linux, NIPAL is not running because its kernel module (similar to the .sys driver files on Windows) failed to load.You can check this with the following expression:
sudo lsmod | grep nipalk
If the result is empty, the module is not loaded.If the NI Linux Desktop drivers were installed properly, this can be caused by a kernel update of the Linux distribution in use. Aside from reinstalling the drivers, a quick fix can often be achieved by recompiling the kernelmodules using the dkms (Dynamic Kernel Module Support) tool.
First, make sure your distribution and its packages are up to date. The procedure is similar across distros except for the different package managers used.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL):
sudo yum update && sudo yum upgrade
sudo zypper refresh && sudo zypper update
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
A reboot might be necessary to switch to an eventually updated kernel.
Now, recompile and reload the kernel modules via
sudo dkms autoinstall
Reboot the machine.
sudo systemctl status nipal.service
sudo systemctl restart nipal.service
If that fails as well, check the compilation log via
cat /var/lib/dkms/nipalk/kernel-`uname -r`-`uname -m`/log/make.log
Otherwise, recheck that your distribution and the kernel version in use is supported by the NI Linux Desktop driver version installed.
