I upgraded recently to these deb on my radeon 7000 system.  Now after
upgrade XF86 no longer comes up automatically and I cannot start it with
startx as a normal user, though root can.  xinit does bring up XF86
though. When using startx the x server fails silently with out any
errors or warnings.  I also cannot find a difference in the log files
between startx as a normal user and startx as root.  I also have noticed
a slow down in the system as a whole.  Any advice on what I should do?
Maybe someone could tell me how to simply remove these debs and replace
them with Branden's(which work wonderfully without any problems on this
system).  I would appreciate any help I could get.  Thankyou.
