Anyone have a fix for @noraj's issue below? I'm still experiencing it nigh a month later.

Edit: As of 4 hours ago the dev's said they'd fix the issue and will push soon

@menta I can confirm your solutions works. Thanks!

corallus commented on 2018-02-16 08:35

@menta Thanks! Works perfectly. evdi and kernel updates are a real pain in the ass...

The following modified PKGBUILD may be used until the bug causing problems with linux 4.15 ( will be fixed upstream:

Please help, I'm no longer able to receive any signal from my monitor anymore.

For linux 4.15, this change [0] was added to the drm infrastructure. It's fine if you just add a NULL pointer for the new drm_file* second argument to drm_mode_object_find.

You can find that file in /var/lib/dkms/evdi/1.5.0/source/evdi_connector.c once the package is installed.

This needs 'libdrm' added to makedepends to build

I'm getting the following error after the recent kernel update to 4.13.5-1

Error! echo
Your kernel headers for kernel 4.13.4-1-ARCH cannot be found at
/usr/lib/modules/4.13.4-1-ARCH/build or /usr/lib/modules/4.13.4-1-ARCH/source.
