Error from target: gator driver version x is different than gator daemon version y

Applies to: DS-5

Answer

SYMPTOM

When connecting Streamline to the target running a Linaro Ubuntu image, DS-5 displays a error message that says:

Problem Occurred, Error from target: gator driver version 9 is different than gator daemon version 10.

CAUSE

This error message indicates that the gator daemon has a newer version than the driver.

RESOLUTION 1

Make sure the target is connected to the network and run the below from a shell on the target:

apt-get install gator-module-dkms

This should update the driver to the latest version, matching the daemon version on the target. Restart the target now and try to connect Streamline again. 

RESOLUTION 2

If the target does not have access to the network, or the distribution you are using does not support the 'apt-get' command, then the gator driver or daemon must be rebuilt from the source.

For more information, please refer to the Streamline documentation, Target Setup section.
