Hi there!

Got a new shiny Dell XPS 13 (2015) at my workplace. Everything (except the build-in wlan module, which I plan to replace) is working fine with Fedora 23.

As I want to connect a external monitor to the machine I bought a usb-to-vga adapter. It is a Icy Box (IB-AC507), apparently FL2000DX is the chip underneath. A quick search told me that a driver for that thing is hard to get by...

Any help?

You need to install free and nonfreen and add akmod-wl and kernel-devel so it will install broadcom module.
