Default Bug#618261: linux-2.6: Please enable CONFIG_FB_UDL on all architectures

Package: linux-2.6
Severity: wishlist

CONFIG_FB_UDL enables the udlfb framebuffer driver, for a USB-to-DVI
display adapter. The Debian kernels have this driver enabled on an
armel kernel, but not in general. As a USB device, this seems like a
perfect candidate for enabling (=m) on all architectures.

Thanks,
Josh Triplett

It does seem to make sense, but we need to be sure that consoles won't
move to the DisplayLink adapter when udlfb is loaded on a system where
it is a secondary adapter.

Once a job is fouled up, anything done to improve it makes it worse.
