Or unless you want DualHead, as in my case. XFree86's driver doesn't
support ATI's DualHead. I've heard that the X.org driver might, but like
many others, I'm waiting for it to become standard part of Debian before
trying it.

Anyway, it works as long as you stick to a kernel having the same DRM
API than the one they released for. And kernel hackers can always
attempt to update the open source part of the driver, which is the
interface between the binary library and the kernel.
