Hi ,

 Thanks for the prompt response. Is there any other alternative through which i can compile dpdk igb driver on centos 6.9.? Any other lower version of dpdk.? I have tried dpdk 2.0, 2.1, 2.2 versions but no success. Google cloud by default provide CentOs 6.9 VM image.

Thanks and Regards
Puneet Singh

Hi, Singh,

It seems  the kernel version you are building against does not support
DPDK 16.04 IGB kernel module.

If it OK for you to bind DPDK with alternate modules, like uio_pci_generic, which
I assume comes with your CentOS (you can check with "modinfo uio_pci_generic"), then
you can try disabling the build of igb_uio by setting CONFIG_RTE_EAL_IGB_UIO=y
in build/.config and running "make" again.

Note: you may encounter errors also when building KNI kernel module, and if so,
you can avoid them by disabling build of KNI kernel module with setting
CONFIG_RTE_KNI_KMOD=n in build/.config (unless you need KNI).
