Default dsiplaylink for kernel 6 ?

Hello

displayLink works fine with Ubuntu 22.04, kernel 5.15 on my laptop, but I have some troubles with freezing after suspend.

It seems that this trouble disappears with kernel 6 but I could not make this driver work with this new version of the kernel.

I would be happy to know when and/how to use it on kernel 6 please.

Best regards
Arnaud

Default DisplayLink and kernel 6

To be more precise, I've just discovered that the DiplayLink driver works with kernel 6 and my DELL USB-C hubs but not with my Belkin one.

Best regards

Default Pop_OS 22.04 issue

I was on Pop_OS without issue, but an update that happened in the last week ended with my Displaylink device not giving any output after a reboot (day end shut down & next day start)

Only thing I can guess is that Pop_OS updated the Kernel to 6.* and Display link driver will not install with issues reporting evdi & dkms (and combinations) not being written to kernel.

I saw on this forum that kernel 6 is not supported yet which is a bummer to kill my system, as I need 3 screens.

As there does not seem to be a roadmap or delivery date, I have gone back to 20.04 for the 5 Kernel & have my 3 screens.

Does anyone know when we can expect kernel 6 support or how to get the current driver to install on Pop_OS 22.04 LTS Nvidia

Same issue here, kernel 6.02 is not supported! Running PopOS as well, which recently upgraded to v6 kernel. I've applied the same workaround as @ice10001, rollback to v5[.9] kernel.

I've attached the install log from /var/log/displaylink, clearly showing the evdi dkms is failing.

Default Ubuntu 22.04 kernel 6 - no support

upgrade to Kernel 6 broke my display-link too.

Following up, probably it is the same issue as already addressed here: https://github.com/DisplayLink/evdi/issues/376

However, there's no official evdi release that includes this fix, nor does the ubuntu bundle (the .run pacakge) include it.

Default What is the link to buy the dual hmi usb?

Hello, One question, it actually helps....
I have questions about which hub should I buy to use dual hdmi, could anyone tell me which is the right device?

I use PopOs.
I've seen people talking about this wavlink, but I don't think it's him:


https://pt.aliexpress.com/item/10050...d=yHr0am7r1rPL

Can someone confirm if this is the one, or what is the correct link?
Note: I'm in Europe.
