As my laptop's VGA output is broken, I bought an USB to VGA adapter, sold by StarTech.com as part# USB2VGAE.
usb 1-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3
usb 1-3: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
usb 1-3: New USB device found, idVendor=0711, idProduct=5001
usb 1-3: New USB device strings: Mfr=16, Product=32, SerialNumber=0
usb 1-3: Product: USBVGA
usb 1-3: Manufacturer: MCT CORP
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0711:5001 Magic Control Technology Corp.
It is known too as UVT 100
from MCT. I hoped I could use sisusbvga driver (included in kernel tree) from Thomas Winischhofer
but was not successful, should be different chipsets.
Samir S. did try to make a driver for this device, see this page
but told me it is not working yet.
Does somebody know a way to get this device working on Slackware Linux 12.2 (kernel 126.96.36.199-smp for now) ?
Thanks in advance for any clue or pointer.
