Default Ubuntu 21.04: could not insert 'evdi': Exec format error

Hi all,

I'm not able to use my monitor via DisplayLink on Ubuntu 21.04.

I installed "DisplayLink USB Graphics Software for Ubuntu5.4-EXE.zip"
It seems the evdi module is not loaded by the kernel.

I see the following errors in syslog:
Code:
Aug  4 18:48:25 mZBOX systemd[1]: displaylink-driver.service: Scheduled restart job, restart counter is at 357.
Aug  4 18:48:25 mZBOX systemd[1]: Stopped DisplayLink Driver Service.

Aug  4 18:48:25 mZBOX systemd[1]: Failed to start DisplayLink Driver Service.
Some details about my configuration:

Code:
uname -a
Linux mZBOX 5.11.0-25-generic #27-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jul 9 23:06:29 UTC 2021 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
If you need more details, I'll be happy to provide them.
