Hi,

Anyone out there using DisplayLink? - is it "tested" in Factory?
A bit complicated to answer generically

a - the kernel has support for the older generation of chips
b - there is a udev bug (I've submitted a fix - don't know whether it's
in)
c - X now has a driver but you need to install the modesetting X driver
manually
d - configuration has to be done by hand via xrandr

The kernel .config needs the line below set to =y or =m
