@Tux Rules, I won't insist on the Catalyst drivers since the discussion moved on. FYI, I have begun using Debian less than a month ago, I have been a strict Slackware guy for years, (and going with AMD or Nvidia drivers is the only way to go on Slack, AFAIK) so I'm used to editing manually xorg.conf. It do is a pain to get it right the first time, but afterwards it just works, as long as your kernel and X modules are compiled properly - once a kernel update.

IOW, I'm happy with my current config and though curious will wait my next system to try Lenny's packages again. Thanks anyway!

Hmmm... What's the output of 'dpkg -S /usr/lib/libGL.so.1.2' ?

Code:
diversion by fglrx-glx from: /usr/lib/libGL.so.1.2
diversion by fglrx-glx to: /usr/lib/fglrx/diversions/libGL.so.1.2
libgl1-mesa-glx, fglrx-glx: /usr/lib/libGL.so.1.2

Sorry the. It all looks good, as far as I can tell. I'm officially stumped.

Everything is the same Now I'm reading this. There are such notes:
Quote:
The driver as a whole is made of three main components: the driver proper, a replacement libGL and a kernel module. The driver and libGL are in the fglrx-driver package, the kernel module's source code is in the fglrx-kernel-src package. Note that the driver will work without the kernel module, but without 3D acceleration.
Hm... it seems to be my case.
Quote:
You must compile your kernel and the ATI kernel module with the same compiler version, otherwise the module won't work. If you are using a prebuilt kernel, you'll need to find out which version of GCC was used to build it (look into /proc/version) and make sure you're using the same.
I've found that /proc/version is GCC 4.1.3, however cc --version gives 4.3.2. May be this is the reason? Well, perhaps I should try to compile fglrx with gcc 4.1.3. good luck to me

Except that it's not your case:

Code:
(II) fglrx(0): Direct rendering enabled
You wouldn't get that notice if there was a problem with the kernel module.

Here, they say:
Quote:
To check for AGP support, run:
grep AGP /boot/config-$(uname -r)
The output should be:

CONFIG_AGP=y
CONFIG_AGP_AMD64=y
CONFIG_AGP_INTEL=m
CONFIG_AGP_SIS=m
CONFIG_AGP_VIA=m
I obtain all "m". Could then this be problem?
