Hi Amos

Simulink/EtherLab depends heavily on pdserv. The versions you have 
deployed are not compatible with one another.

I am also not convinced that you are using etherlab-2.1 from 
etherlab.org, because the message block was not available in that version.

I am worried why you report having problems installing from

That should work without problems. I only had warnings about unknown gpg 
keys when installing software from the repository, but that seems to be 
a problem with zypper.

# zypper ar 
# zypper ref etherlab
# zypper in etherlab pdserv-devel
# /usr/share/etherlab/install.sh $MATLAB_ROOT

Do the usual Matlab installation from Matlab prompt:
 >> run $MATLAB_ROOT/rtw/c/etherlab/setup_etherlab.m

Make sure there is nothing left over from previous pdserv-devel 
installations, especially /usr/local/include/pdserv.h

Recompile your model and you should be set.

Mit freundlichem Gruß

It is version 2.1. (according to the NEWS file in the source directory)
