I've unflagged the package as out of date since the version it downloads is the most recent one. I no longer have a system that uses displaylink, thank god, so I cannot assist in trying to debug errors. If anyone wants to take over the package, please contact me :)

If you ever feel like adopting this package, just contact me. I will gladly accept any help.

@vS0uz4 if you use a radeon you are most likely using mesa.

What do I do if I use MESA? How do I verify what is being used?

@vS0uz4 Older kernels should work alright. If you use mesa, pin it and update manually if you use something else I can't tell. Personally i switched from my Displaylink dock to a thunderbolt dock and I don't regret it a bit. Really, it depends on your use case, but IMHO the two viable options are: Get a travel adapter or get a thundebolt dock. Most displalink docks cover the middle ground and the d3100 I had did it poorly, mainly because of this driver.

I am intending to buy a Dock Station for use with DisplayLink, I also use Manjaro Linux (see 18.0.4 - Illyria) a distribution based on Arch Linux, my kernel version is (4.14.118-1-MANJARO) will I have compatibility issues?

Working with: archlinux 5.1.4, evdi-1.6.1 and displaylink 5.1.26-1

Works for me using these package versions:

displaylink 5.1.26-1 evdi 1.6.0-1 linux 5.0.2.arch1-1

I confirm it is not working for kernel 5.0.1

BoredCat commented on 2019-03-14 00:29

@PlusMinus USB, Ethernet & Sound work on Kernel 5.

All video non-functional as EVDI dependancy is broken. Cannot update to evdi-git or evdi-pre-release as it fails to build.

Journal error: modprobe[]: modprobe: FATAL: Module evdi not found in directory /lib/modules/5.0.0-arch1-1-ARCH

Rebooting changes nothing.

hey @noraj

hmm i already had pageflip set to false, but somehow video-output is still not working for me properly. ethernet/audio/usb however is working correctly... it's always the video-output that's causing problems :(

noraj commented on 2019-03-04 10:08

This config doesn't work for me, right now.

  • linux 4.20.11
  • evdi 1.6.0
  • displaylink 5.1.26
