VGA-out problems on a Powerbook

Dear guys,

I'm having some problems with the vga-out tricky stuff. I'm running
debian unstable on a powerbook 1ghz, ati 9000.

It is not completely clear to me which are the steps to follow to have
the vga-out working. 

What I did is to go to http://people.debian.org/~daenzer/dri-trunk-sid/
and get the following packages:


I installed them. Then I exctracted the drm-tarball and I went to
/usr/src/linux but when I ran make-kpkg modules-image, I obtain errors:

dpkg-gencontrol: error: source paragraph in control info file is missing
Source line
dh_gencontrol: command returned error code 65280
make[2]: *** [binary-modules] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/modules/drm-trunk'
make[1]: *** [kdist_image] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/modules/drm-trunk'
Module /usr/src/modules/drm-trunk failed.

Moreover following the suggestions of Jamie Wilkinson
I tried to run xrandr but without any success:

$ xrandr
Xlib:  extension "RANDR" missing on display ":0.0".

maybe I missed the main point.....what's wrong?
