Hi HPS, I thought the later generations, especially the ones with USB3 support, used a propretary encryption between the host and the adapter that was not currently supported by any F/OSS operating system? If you look on the DisplayLink forums there are angry threads about the lack of Linux support for the later generation dongles. e.g. http://displaylink.org/forum/showthread.php?s=77a3ad0ad0f21031f0996325f249f584&t=61689 (there's a much longer thread somewhere which is more angry, but I've lost the link) Regards, Gary _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
