I think I got it by means of a Google query[1]. You're correct in that 
nothing on the site seems to be able to reach the page (I have tried 
hard to browse to it, without success).

Sure. I found it useful anyway, albeit incomplete; which is why I wrote 
my email.

I have made some progress since I posted and can confirm the 
instructions worked for a 2.6.35 kernel. I am currently building it.

I have found the compatibility matrix[2] very useful. A nice improvement 
to it would be a floating table header such as [3] (live example at [4], 
very cool).

Hmm. Which source packages are you referring to? I have downloaded 
ltt-control-0.87-09062010 and its README does not mention the kernel 
side. The associated patches (patch- do not come 
with any README files I can see.

As I said, I have picked both from [5].

Sure, I will.
