Yes, I tried that, sorry I forgot to mention it. module-assistant
wasn't able to compile the kernel module. I guess Debian introduces a
critical patch either in fglrx-kernel-src package or in
1. Please post responses to the list. Thanks
2. In other for module-assistant to work you must delete the old
fglrx-kernel-src found in the /usr/src folder. Also you should delete
the /usr/src/modules/fglrx file before updating the debs that you got from
the ATI site (using the --build-pkg parameters for your version
(testing/unstable/stable). m-a doesn't do anything if it finds an
fglrx-kernel-src package. It thinks its work is already done.
Maybe this will help.
