Interestingly this one does not depend on the firmware-linux package, and i deinstalled it. radeonhd will still probably need firmware-linux, even though it doesn't depend on it. In order to enable acceleration, the firmware for your card has to be uploaded to the card's ram, requiring the firmware-linux package. <snip > > I tried to downgrade Xorg and any fglrx packages to 'stable' but then fglrx-source would no more build. It also seemed that reinstalling fglrx messed up radeonhd somehow, and i had to purge all fglrx-* packages to get it clean again. The fglrx-glx will cause the radeonhd driver to misbehave as it replaces the implementation of GL with an ati specific version. If you use radeonhd that package has to be uninstalled. > > > Matthew
