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

@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 :(

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

  • linux 4.20.11
  • evdi 1.6.0
  • displaylink 5.1.26

Using USB 3.0 DL-6xxx, DL-5xxx, DL-41xx, DL-3xxx Devices and Workaround 2: Temporarily disable PageFlip for modesetting

@darose Actually v4 doesn't work anymore with Linux kernel 4.20.11 for me so I guess I must upgrade to v5.

darose commented on 2019-03-03 03:20

Does v5 bring any important new functionality?

Well, rhermes says they'll get to updating it sometime this weekend, but in the meantime you can just do this. That did the trick for me.

how did you get displaylink 5.1.26-1 installed? I'm still running 4.4.24-1 and I'm also running the linux LTS version. I have the same evdi version though.

I'd appreciate any tips on how to upgrade displaylink manually.

There is now an evdi 1.6. Maybe that will work for you. This is currently working for me:

  • evdi 1.6.0-1
  • displaylink 5.1.26-1
  • linux 4.20.13.arch1-1
