Default Debian 8.1 driver install

I installed DKMS but I am getting the error:
Unsatisfied dependencies. Missing component: Linux headers for running kernel, 3.16.0-4-amd64

whenever I run the displaylink-driver-1.0.68.run script. I am doing UEFI boot, so do I have to edit my kernel somewhere to bipass this? Ubuntu instructions has a signed kernel available in the Ubuntu repo for UEFI boots, but debian is a little different. Any thoughts?

kernel 3.16.0-4-amd64

The installer script is looking for
Code:
/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build/Kbuild
to ensure that kernel headers are available for a running kernel. Ensure the headers are indeed installed, then change or remove the line to match files available on Debian.

Hope this helps.

Default Kbuild

It is indeed installed.
Code:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
Reading package lists... Done

Reading state information... Done
linux-headers-3.16.0-4-amd64 is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
However, there is no Kbuild file:
Code:
/lib/modules/3.16.0-4-amd64/build# ls
arch  include  Makefile  Module.symvers  scripts
Do you know of some alternative I can create a symbolic link to?

Edit:
the Makefile.

Default finishing up

Code:
/lib/modules/3.16.0-4-amd64/build# ln -sf Makefile Kbuild
linking the Makefile to Kbuild seemed to allow me to install the drivers without error.

Code:
# ./displaylink-driver-1.0.68.run
Verifying archive integrity... All good.

I rebooted and now I guess I need to run some more commands? If the above output looks correct, do you have a link to a thread or directions on how to load my screens or check if the driver is working?

Edit: lsmod and lsusb outputs

I was reading the other post about the gentleman with the custom display-link driver for debian 8.1. His installer seems to have started the dlm service, where as, mine did not. I do not appear to have DLM in my services list.

Edit: Upon further research. This is a common occurrence because the install script only supports Ubuntu and its /lib/system.d/system hierarchy. There are work-arounds available. Searching....

Default found work around, sort of.

A temporary work around to at least get a step further in the process:

run the displaylink-driver-1.0.68.run file with the --keep --noexec options to unpack the files into a directory. cd into that driver directory. edit the displaylink-installer.sh file. Edit the line with SYSTEMINITDAEMON= to be SYSTEMINITDAEMON=systemd

run

Code:
displaylink-installer.sh -install
With my symbolic link work around and editing this file, the driver installs and dlm is installed and started. HOWEVER, on my computer, my system crashed. After reboot, I am unable to start the displaylink.service because it is masked.

Code:
# systemctl start displaylink.service
Failed to start displaylink.service: Unit displaylink.service is masked.
Edit: kicked off:

Code:
# systemctl -a
UNIT                                                                        LOAD      ACTIVE   SUB       DESCRIPTION
● display-manager.service                                                     not-found inactive dead      display-manager.service

Hi stuguy909,

Could you post results for
# dmesg
# lsusb

when your display is connected please.

Thx.

PS : I test on another system and I had to blacklist udlfb to work correctly (it's not done by the installer). I have specify it into /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-framebuffer.conf
Code:
blacklist udlfb
I will update my installer and re-upload it.

the udlfb was already blacklisted on my system. I didn't do it personally, however. My procedure may have been slightly different than yours.
