ati's fglrx 8.25.18 and sid


i am trying to get latest ati's driver working under debian sid.
i downloaded them from ati's website as debian repository only offers 8.24.8 (which are working) i created debian packages from the .run file, installed fglrx-driver, fglrx-kernel-src, ran module-assistant.

$ dmesg
[fglrx] module loaded - fglrx 8.25.18 [May 18 2006] on minor 0

Xorg.0.log :
(II) fglrx(0): DRI initialization successfull!
(II) fglrx(0): [DRI] installation complete
(II) fglrx(0): Direct rendering enabled

as you see, everything looks fine except :
$ fglrxinfo
display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.4.1)

so I got back to 8.24.8 and everything works fine, EXCEPT google earth, which was the reason of my trying to install this new version of fglrx.

has anyone got them working or have an idea ?
