Install fglrx driver instead the open source radeon in debian 7?


Hello, my video card "Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Cedar PRO [Radeon HD 5450/6350]"
create something which can be seen with dmesg "drm: registered panic notifier".
Should I install the fglrx driver instead of keeping the open source radeon as per current install?
I have antix which is a debian wheezy based system https://wiki.debian.org/ATIProprietary# ... 2Wheezy.22
Thanks for any advice before I do it.

That is not an error message, but anyways, seeing that the free driver in Debian 7 is ancient (radeon development is very fast) I would recommend to go for the fglrx driver.
