Bug#568028: slow scrolling due to disabled acceleration

I had the same problem. It means acceleration is disabled.

(EE) RADEONHD(0): [dri] CP_INIT failed
(EE) RADEONHD(0): RHDDRIFinishScreenInit: RHDDRIKernelInit Failed.

the kernel driver needs a firmware blob to run. (basically a video bios update that runs on the card)

to fix:
sudo apt-get install firmware-linux

then reboot

xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd suggests firmware-linux, but apt doesn't pull it in automatically. perhaps a recommends would be more appropriate?
