Any chance of finding the sources of this, so I could try? I would
(apparently) need the X.org sources, the sources of the new radeon
driver, and (I suppose) xrandr 1.3.
Do I guess correctly if I say that the interfaces remain stable, i.e. I
do not need to rebuild other applications?
Is there (probably) a debian (lenny) backport for this?
P.S.: The backport of 6.11.0 didn't work any better, unfortunately.
