Yes, also found on google (some mailing list entry) that obviously this
doesn't work with the plain radeon driver. The guy wrote that he got a
modified version "thx to one of the X developers" (quote). Since he
didn't include any link, I don't know anything more.

You might have luck building the radeon driver from cvs.

But I have to say that starting from here I'm lost.

Strange, did you follow the instructions in the readme? (Creating links
to the appropriate kernel version directory?) It works pretty well for
me and obviously for some other guys as well. (And I think this tool is
pretty useful.)

Good luck,
