I am having trouble getting access to my x310 through PCIe.  I have read a number of posts on the list but have not found a viable course of action, I hope someone can advise.  When I try to start the server:

> sudo niusrprio_pcie start
Loading: NiRioSrv modprobe: FATAL: Module NiRioSrv not found.
niusrpriok modprobe: FATAL: Module niusrpriok not found.

Starting: niusrpriorpc

I have an HP z620 running Ubuntu 14.04.  Some other diagnostic outputs:

> uname -a

Please reboot manually before attempting to use your NI drivers and products.

I have rebooted in the past after this message.

It seems I'm missing some modules, but how do I get updateNIDrivers to build them?  Should I do something manually?  Any advice is appreciated.
