Mediatek USB VCOM Cellphone Drivers

Need these Mediatek USB VCOM Drivers so fastboot can find Doogee Device. Anyone know if these drivers are available for Linux?

What do you mean by "fastboot" being able to find the device?

Mediatek USB drivers should already be in recent Linux kernels IIRC. I used the Mediatek SP_Flash_Tool several months ago on Slackware, to root two android devices (one was a doogee, and the other an UMI SUPER).

This may be of some use, although focused on flashing custom roms to a device:

If you look at guides for this process relating to the SP_Flash_Tool being used on a Windows host, there is an extra step to setup/install "VCOM" drivers.
This wasn't needed for the rooting process on Linux, assuming the USB drivers are already present as available kernel modules.
