            I sure hope the discrete Radeon 3000 is supported by KMS
            (should be, it is
            supposed to be a r600).

        It is not a discrete radeon, her's the lspci:
        $ lspci | grep -i vga
        01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc 760G
        [Radeon 3000]

             > Does disabling KMS make any effect?

            Actually, I'd try to make sure KMS is enabled, instead :)

        KMS is reported to be not supported from drm:
        Â $ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep KMS
        (II) [KMS] drm report modesetting isn't supported

        $ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep '(EE)'
        Â Â Â Â Â Â Â  (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented,
        (??) unknown.
        (EE) RADEON(0): [dri] RADEONDRIGetVersion failed to open the DRM
        (EE) RADEON(0): Acceleration initialization failed
        (EE) GLX error: Can not get required symbols.

        I attach my Xorg.log: it seems 3d not working (glxgears/info
        crash per segmentation fault)

            Note: you need either the Debian or Ubuntu patched kernels,
            or you need the
            latest longterm 2.6.35 patch level, or the latest stable
            patchlevel for
            2.6.36. Â Anything else is likely to simply not work (e.g.
            latest longterm
            2.6.32 doesn't work).

        Â $ uname -srm
        Linux 2.6.32-5-amd64 x86_64

        Yea! Squeeze is stuck with 2.6.32..."patched" sup., as per
        standard distribution's kernel?

        $ lsmod | grep radeon
        radeon                573996  0
        ttm                    39986  1 radeon
        drm_kms_helper         20065  1 radeon
        drm                   142359  3
        i2c_algo_bit            4225  1 radeon
        i2c_core               15712  14

        Some problems in my configuration? No xorg.conf neither
        xorg.conf.d (Version: 1:7.5+8)

        Any hints? thanks


 That's the problem, i think... Custom kernel! :D

$ cat /boot/config-2.6.32-5-amd64 | grep KMS
# CONFIG_DRM_I915_KMS is not set

...Correct me, if i'm wrong, please.

If you want an easy why to manage your x system for Debian, take a look at this page: http://smxi.org/docs/smxi-manual.htm I've been using it for ever 3 years, smxi will manage your x driver install, repos, updates and the kernel, while sgfxi is even simpler and will just manage x driver install only, ether way it's easy, it will pick the best driver for your system and install it for you and makes using Debian easy.
