Hello Gregg,
We used Fedora and Debian to develop the software. Maybe it needs an 
update, I haven't tried to build it in a while. There was a 
collaboration of people who figured it out (see README) but one person 
that actually wrote the code. By the time you get your box I may already 
have tv-out working at boot (in coreboot 99% there) so this program 
would only be needed to make adjustments if desired. Hope that helps.
