I just installed the ati drivers from the ati website yesterday with that
kernel and it succeeded. Are you building the fglrx package in debian? I had
that problem with the nvidia drivers also. I read at kernel.org that
paravirt_ops is no longer a GPL-only export in the current kernel 2.6.22. I
don't know of a workaround.
