Linux driver

Installs the panda linux kernel driver using DKMS.

This will allow the panda to work with tools such as can-utils


  • apt-get install dkms gcc linux-headers-$(uname -r) make sudo


  • make link (only needed the first time. It will report an error on subsequent attempts to link)

  • make all

  • make install


  • make uninstall


You will need to bring it up using sudo ifconfig can0 up or sudo ip link set dev can0 up, depending on your platform.

Note that you may have to setup udev rules for Linux

sudo tee /etc/udev/rules.d/11-panda.rules <<EOF
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="bbaa", ATTRS{idProduct}=="ddcc", MODE="0666"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="bbaa", ATTRS{idProduct}=="ddee", MODE="0666"
sudo udevadm control --reload-rules && sudo udevadm trigger
