- sudo make install

This kernel driver matches against alldevices. It uses the monitors preferred mode timings (from extended EDID) to choose and set the default mode. So if the monitor has greater capabilities than the device, it will fail. When loaded successfully on a device and able to successfully set a mode, paints the entire screen a reassuring green.
An earlier version of this driver (udlfb 0.3) has been included by GregKH in the in driver staging area of Linux kernel 2.6.31.
