Bad news, then. The backported driver is the same version than the 
current upstream from AMD/ATI (12.3).

Besides the ATI driver, did you get another packages from there (i.e., 
xserver)? It seems you're using Squeeze's stock kernel and "xserver-xorg-
core" versions.

Here are the steps to configure the closed source driver once you install 
the packages:


The above command has to be run with no X running.

How bad :-(

Or that you need an updated xerver or kernel...

AFAIK, it matches the version that you have now (12.3).

can't see any try coming from the xorg server to load the closed source 
driver which can mean:

1/ The xserver version you have installed does not support your card, 
although I would have expected something at the logs showing xorg falling 
back to vesa.

2/ You've boot your system with no "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" and thus not 
forcing the load of the fglrx driver.
