Do you have Synaptic installed?? Use that to hunt down and install your

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.
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.
