Sounds like good news .. :) 

Does this mean that there's a good chance the current xserver-xorg.*
packages 7.0.18 might work even on the latest alubook 5,8, provided
the xserver-xorg-video-ati 1: is also installed?

Actually I was considering getting the latest xorg-ati drivers via
cvs, compile them myself and then install/copy them over the
Debian/unstable xorg 7.0 packages I can get with the usual aptitude
update. But I'd be happily omitting the cvs part .. :)

Currently I've installed some 6.8.2.dfsg.1-11 xserver-xorg packages,
because they can cope, as it seems, with the machine mentioned above
... But I'd be definitely glad to install the latest unstable xorg.*
packages provided there's at least a *small* chance they will not break
my current X ... :)

Thanks in anticipation
