MPSS 3.2 on 3.13.0-24 kernel

MPSS 3.2 on 3.13.0-24 kernel


I am trying to install MPSS 3.2 on kernel  3.13.0-24, but when I start the services, I am getting error

"Error getting SCIF driver version
mic0: booting (mode: linux image: /usr/share/mpss/boot/bzImage-knightscorner)"

I got MIC module patch from , and I could install MIC module. But when I start the services using /etc/init.d/mpss start, I get the error "Error getting SCIF driver version".

And miccheck gives output


Error getting SCIF driver version

What distribution? You seem to have a version mismatch. You should download the mpss 3.2.1 package and install all the rpms in the top directory, build latest mic module from the above repository. There is another thread in this forum titled something like using mpss with Fedora 20.....see the discussions in there.

Also, in 3.13.x kernel includes experimental modules mic_host and mic_card. You should blacklist those modules so that they don't interfere with the mic module you are building.

Thanks for your reply. I am using ubuntu 14.04 and I got the patch for mic module from which got installed successfully and I can see the module using lsmod. But there seems problem while starting mpsss stack.

Previously I had Ubuntu 12 running with MPSS 2.1 so, when I tried to upgrade it now, I am not able to do it.
