Open synaptic again and type amd in the search bar. I'm seeing over a
dozen fglrx related packages. If you have a 64bit install you really
don't want a 32bit graphical system, especially if you use DKMS to
update your driver during kernel upgrades.
Do you have Synaptic installed?? Use that to hunt down and install your
packages. If the wheezy version fails you then try the run package ...as
a last resort. Or, upgrade to jessie to legally get the latest and
greatest. That is what I did to get the newer versions of my nVidia
drivers and VLC. As a plus, you stay within the deb package scheme of
things. Just make darn sure you do the upgrade in text terminal mode,
with X stopped totally.
I did not find the fglrx package in Synaptic. I did find some multiarch packages which I installed. But the initial error of not finding the architecture was persistent.
