Hi, what exactly is broken ?
As a workaround you could use Sid packages if Squeeze's are in bad shape. I
have two mostly Squeeze (amd64, kde with desktop "effects" enabled) machines
running Sid's fglrx at the moment and they seem fine, glxinfo and fglrxinfo
doesn't spit any error, xorg logs doesn't contain errors, and the few OpenGl
stuff I just tried are working fine (namely "Torcs" and "xmoto").

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)

Hi Carlos Miranda Molina, please work on your message trimming technique, the OP was already hinted toward non-free by Camaleón earlier in this thread so I could only assume he was aware of the need to use non-free. I just mentioned that for me fglrx from Sid is working fine. I am sorry if "everyone" is wrong, but your message trimming suggest I am "everyone" all by myself...
I like your prompt by the way.
