Wow, my displaylink monitor works out of the box :blink:

This is a slithly older model and Bernie said they are not supported by Fedora...

It never worked in F17... so I was using the dock as merely USB port replicator. Installed F18 onto the 'bigtop' and there was an unkown monitor popping up.

The background is a little disorted, but other than that it works fine. I would say even better than DVI (it detects the external monitor left of the LVDS).


//edit: and my graphics card video memory is not freaking out any more if some monitor is connected to DVI (it's a radeon thing :))

[disi@localhost]~% cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/radeon_pm_info
default engine clock: 680000 kHz
current engine clock: 99990 kHz
default memory clock: 900000 kHz
current memory clock: 150000 kHz
voltage: 900 mV

//edit: maybe, if I could put a solid colour as background somehow?

//edit: all black is fine :D

//edit: if I change to solid colour and then back to a normal image, it's fine.

yeah, there've been a few people working on a KMS displaylink driver for a few releases now. I think I saw an early cut at the last fudcon.
