kernel module that supports usb-c hdmi
#11
Hi again,

I can also confirm that the behavior of this hdmi output depends also on the version of uboot. I have been playing around with at least two of them. With one of them everything works (with this old 5.7 kernel), with the other one, it worked pretty badly and even ending with this blinking green and red light.

Hope that could help…

Hi Alexandre

I also played around with USB-C video yesterday and found out that the Manjaro KDE Plasma Image is already on Kernel 5.10 (XFCE is still on 5.7).

I tried to get an USB-C dock with two external Screens working, but had no luck - the external screens are just mirrored (same behaviour as before, and same as with Manjaro XFCE and postmarketOS).

Maybe you want to give it a try as well - maybe your problem was fixed.

Thanks for the state of the art in manjaro. I was planning to give it a try (i think i can just download their kernel package and pacman -U it…) but i wont if it doesn't work. That pretty strange that this old kernel of mine succeed in managing the two screens very smoothly ! I wish these guys were still maintaining their kernel…
