DisplayLink Drivers Crash Xorg

#1 Post by numbereight »

I just spent a night trying to figure out why my Framebuffer device was missing and it seems to happen after installing the DisplayLink drivers from:
offical sources (which only supports ubuntu but I tried anyway)
And https://github.com/AdnanHodzic/displaylink-debian

Here is my xorg crash log

I need the driver to use a monitor connected through displaylink on my pc but now I cant boot into a gui at all. I have read on various other fourm posts that these drivers should work.

Great you find that github solution, but that is not anyway part of Debian, so you should consult them.

There's a pretty okay troubleshooting page here - might be worth a look:
