what driver are you using ? Free "ati/radeon" or "fglrx" proprietary driver?

If it's the free one, check that your card is supported somewhere here:

and show us your /etc/X11/xorg.conf (maybe empty).

If it's the fglrx stuff, check on ati's website, your card may be
"legacy" and stuck with an older version of the driver (9.3 ?). And yet
again a matter of xorg.conf too.


I don't think the kernel itself has something to do with this, except
maybe with the "KMS" (kernel mode settings) of latest kernels.

Ubuntu tends to make the use of proprietary drivers "transparent" to
users, so maybe you where using "fglrx" there and not in Debian ?
