@DocMAX a PR was just merged into the evdi repo to fix this. You will either need to wait for evdi to make a new release or you will need to use the evdi-git package

Made a PR against Varun-garg/evdi-compat

@djallits Thank you. I was thinking more or less the same.

@endorfina I think you should follow tagged releases from Synaptic for this package. evdi-git should follow the displaylink/evdi repository and evdi-compat-git should patch on its own. I wish there was one maintainer for all three packages, so we could ensure consistency with what I proposed.

There is still the problem of versioning evdi-compat-git. I think @varungarg just did that as a one-off patch, and did not take into consideration a long-term strategy.

Maintainer here. What's your preference, evdi users? Do I apply patches to new kernels before official evdi updates are released?

@bidskii Can you take your PR to the displaylink/evdi repo, and PR that against Varun-garg/evdi-compat?

For information : What does it work for me :

uname -a
Linux Albert 5.10.199-1-MANJARO #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Oct 25 10:47:09 UTC 2023 x86_64 GNU/Linux
pamac install evdi-git
pamac install displaylink
systemctl enable displaylink.service

Thanks for this package :-)

Getting errors trying to build evdi with kernel 6.6.1. Made this patch to get it to build, not sure if this is 100% above board (external monitors work, but I get issues if I close my laptop lid and try to use external monitors only). Can anyone else test it?
