Did you ever find a resolution to this problem?... I have the same thing going on now...

I think I have solved it. The script calls the mempat as a command and it looks for it in the /usr/bin/ directory which it isn't yet in unless you move it there.

You have two options:
1. modify the script so that wherever you see the mempat command you append the path to it at the front; or more easily:
2. just copy it to the /usr/bin/ folder:
sudo cp mempat /usr/bin/

That may be this fellows problem, but I get the following error when running the same script:

mmap() failed: Operation not permitted
Failed to map length 2 at address 3f6bceaf error 1

My mempat file is in the correct directory, but the script still won't work. Here is the thread I've posted my details in:

The best solution of all, even better than the patch, is to buy a laptop cooling pad like the belkin or targus one. Using this my laptop temp is 45 when I do nothing, 55 watching an xvid. Even those annoying HD ones that stress my laptop to the point of shutting down seem to stay under 85.
