    Wow, my displaylink monitor works out of the box

    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

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

    Re: DisplayLink

    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.
