I want to run & test DPDK application for my board OD1000 (armv8a 64-bit) and I have CentOS  7 installed on my board.I have compiled DPDK application [root at localhost build]# uname -r4.11.0-45.6.1.el7a.aarch64
I have successfully compiled the dpdk application & all examples applications as well. But when I tried to run "l2fwd" sample test I'm getting following error. 
[root at localhost build]# ./l2fwd -c 0x2 -n 1 -- -p 0x1 -q 1EAL: Detected 4 lcore(s)EAL: 1024 hugepages of size 2097152 reserved, but no mounted hugetlbfs found for that sizeEAL: Probing VFIO support...EAL: VFIO support initializedMAC updating enabledEAL: Error - exiting with code: 1  Cause: No Ethernet ports - bye
Here is status of my supported cards.[root at localhost dpdk-stable-17.11.1]# ./usertools/dpdk-devbind.py --status

To work around I have tried following commands but they are too giving me errors as well.
./l2fwd   --vdev= igb_uio,iface=eth0 --l 0-3 -n 4 -- -q 8 -p ffff
./l2fwd   --vdev= igb_uio,iface=enp2s0 --l 0-3 -n 4 -- -q 8 -p ffff......
ERROR: failed to parse device "igb_uio"EAL: Unable to parse device 'igb_uio,iface=eth0'
Here is my status of PCI bus:

My doubt is to check whether DPDK have the support for this card are not ?And if it is supported. please suggest me your inputs to resolve this problem or let me know if i'm missing anything.
Apart from that I have found that my Ethernet device named as "enp2s0" before running " ./usertools/dpdk-devbind.py --bind"igb_uio" command.
Note: I'm new to this community & learning this platform so please forgive me if I have added something wrong.
