everyone is wrong, fglrx in Debian Squeeze need non-free packages in
ll they need is module-assistant and fglrx
root@forest:~# aptitude install fglrx-driver fglrx-glx fglrx-control
fglrx-source fglrx-kernel-2.6.32-3-amd64 module-assistant -y
root@forest:~# module-assistant (and follow assistant, select fglrx,
make, build and install)
root@forest:~# modprobe fglrx
root@forest:~# aticonfig --initial (replaces /etc/X11/xorg.conf if exists)
root@forest:~# /etc/init.d/gdm restart (or kdm if you have QT vaccine)
