Running Nine USB-Based Displays On Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Last May we were briefed that DisplayLink 
| would provide open-source driver support 
| on Linux. DisplayLink is a company that 
| makes graphics processors capable of 
| powering high resolution displays that 
| work over a USB connection. This 
| technology is found within products from 
| Hewlett-Packard, ASUS, Samsung, and 
| others. Since last year DisplayLink and 
| the Linux community has been working on a 
| LGPLv2 software stack and in June first 
| released a frame-buffer and X.Org driver 
| and since has released other improvements. 


AMD Catalyst 10.1 Driver For Linux Released

,----[ Quote ]
| Catalyst 10.1 for Linux continues to lack X 
| Server 1.7 support, but the Linux 2.6.32 
| kernel may work with this release. Like past 
| months, the Catalyst 10.1 driver is another 
| unexciting driver update. AMD Eyefinity might 
| also be working on Linux, or at least the 
| ability to use three monitors from a single 
| AMD Radeon HD 5000 series graphics card, but 
| that hasn't been officially shared. Catalyst 
| 10.2 will be a bit more exciting as Ubuntu 
| 10.04 nears, but not without some 
| disappointments too. 



âBusiness Classâ Favi Pico-Projectors Run Small, Have Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| The RIOLED-V is actually a netbook slash
| projector, featuring Linux, web apps (YouTube,
| Flickr and a few other ubiquitous ones like
| weather and email were mentioned) and Wi-Fi.
| It kind of reminded me of that MSI projector
| PC the CES guys spotted out in Vegas this
| week, albeit a smaller, half-baked version
| that did not look anything like a small space
| ship with 1080p.


Favi debuts RIOLED-Q and RIOLED-V wireless pico projectors

,----[ Quote ]
| Based on Linux, users can run a number of
| programs including YouTube, Flickr, e-mail
| clients, web browsers and more. Itâs being
| touted as a netbook/projector. Thereâs also a
| USB port, A/V output, a SM/MMC card reader and
| internal memory (though its not clear how
| much).

Tiny DLP projector ships

,----[ Quote ]
| Digi-Key has started distributing a tiny video projector from Texas
| Instruments (TI) that could prove small enough to embed in mobile phones. The
| 10-lumen Pico Projector uses TI's DLP (digital light processing) technology,
| and is sold as part of a development kit targeting the Linux-ready
| BeagleBoard.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
