Is it possible to make ATI proprietary driver fglrx work with the
latest xorg packages?
Yes. I have fglrx working with xorg and the stock Debian 686 kernel in
an up-to-date sid installation.
The first thing you should do is ignore xorg and check whether the
fglrx kernel module can be loaded. What does 'modprobe fglrx' tell you?
I removed drm from kernel and now the module is loaded:
jojda:/home/erik# lsmod | grep fglrx
fglrx 462048 -
and even xorg log indicates that everything works, at least I think
that's what this message means:
(II) fglrx(0): DRI initialization successfull!
but it's still not working, fglrxinfo says:
