Phoronix: DisplayLink Gets Better In Linux 2.6.34 Kernel
Bernie Thompson, one of the developers working on the DisplayLink Linux support, has written in this weekend to inform us of pending improvements to the DisplayLink frame-buffer driver (udlfb) that will be present in the Linux 2.6.34 kernel. It was nearly a year ago that DisplayLink began supporting Linux so that these USB-powered GPUs/displays would work nicely and with an open-source driver...
The pull request dates back to February, and the patches were pulled into the staging tree some days ago. Linus then pulled the staging tree before closing the merge window. Effectively everything is more than four weeks old already, the only news here is that the code will be part of Linux 2.6.34 now.
Different topic: What's the cheapest DisplayLink-enabled USB-Adapter around? Those from Plugable seem quite expensive to me.
