Here's a page showing the possible chipsets in my USB dongle.
This page possibly has the driver(s) to support it?
I might be lost trying to actually add this to my Linux install if it
requires recompiling the kernel or something. Oh boy. I might be
better off just looking for a used distro-supported USB dongle on
Ebay, or get a PCMIA card.
However, Fedora Core 6 installed perfectly on my laptop and is
running just fine right now. The video updating is actually faster
than on my desktop computer that is down. When I turned on desktop
effects on the laptop and tried the multiple-desktop-cube rotating
feature, it spins pretty quick. Oh... the video is stuck at
800x640. I've seen that issue already so I knew I'd be dealing with
that, but it's not really a problem and might even help with my
remote desktop sessions since all of the desktop will fit in a window
under Vista without scaling it down under tightvnc.
The coolest thing I played with so far on my desktop box was bringing
up the Firefox browser under Linux and visiting pages, while showing
it on my Vista computer in a window.
