Default Exact same problem

I just contacted support with this exact issue. Attempting to get Displaylink running on Raspbian OS buster on a Rpi 4. In addition to the listed issue, the Displaylink 3.1.0.34 for Ubuntu cannot be run because it is not UTF-8 valid

Please let me know what you find out. My plan is to use a virtual machine to drive this given that passing through a traditional video card on ESX has been basically disabled.

Default Legacy Buster

I am switching to a legacy version of Raspbian OS, I'll post here if that solves the issue

Default solution

download a fresh install of last February's Buster (https://downloads.raspberrypi.org/ra...an-2020-02-14/)

DO NOT UPDATE when you log into Raspbian OS

it will now accept the necessary kernels and run Displaylink Ubuntu installer 5.2.14

My case is a little different. I have an existing desktop that I am using the image remotely under ESX, however need the displaylink to get video as pass through for video cards on ESX has been disabled / difficult.

I'll definitely need the driver to compile with the modern 20.04 kernel.

Any DisplayLink support folks around?

Default silly question: where and how to contact support?

I am using Linux and most of the displaylink products on the market doesn't support Linux officially.

I can't find any link/email/webpage to contact support neither. all i can find is a chat windows.


thanks in advance
