I've updated the package to 1.5.1. Don't know if this should go in the pre release or the full release package, but here is the output from git diff on this package:

@PlusMinus This package needs dependency "libdrm" to build in a clean chroot environment. Otherwise, this error is encountered:

@Ashark thanks, muscle memory I'd say. Arrays start at 0 ;-)

@PlusMinus, fyi, according to this wiki page pkgrel should start from 1, not from 0 as in commit e6bda2 (Bump). Thanks for maintaining.

Sorry, should be fixed.

The package downloads fine but the build fails because it tries to cd into a nonexistant directory: ./PKGBUILD: line 27: cd: evdi-1.5.0/library: No such file or directory

The package extracts to the full package name including the -r2 (essentially $pkgver-r2). Putting a line to rename the folder before the cd in the pkgbuild fixes it. commented on 2018-03-12 14:28

When will this package replace evdi so that displaylink can find the right dependencies?

For 4.15, change this to say 15 not 16:

Fails to compile on (fully updated) ERROR: Kernel configuration is invalid. include/generated/autoconf.h or include/config/auto.conf are missing. Run 'make oldconfig && make prepare' on kernel src to fix it.

evdi still breaks when compiled against 4.15, any update on a potential fix?
