not working: debian xen amd64 + ati fglrx kernel module

I'm unable to run the ati kernel-module with the official debian xen kernel for amd64.

I'm using this kernel:

and trying to load this fglrx-module:
fglrx-kernel-2.6.18-6-xen-amd64 (8.28.8-4+2.6.18.dfsg.1-22etch2)

mesg | grep fglrx
gives this output:

fglrx: module license 'Proprietary. (C) 2002 - ATI Technologies, Starnberg, GERMANY' taints kernel.
fglrx: Unknown symbol flush_tlb_page
fglrx: Unknown symbol flush_tlb_page
Does anybody know anything helpful on how to fix this?

I also tried to apply the patch from debian bugs #368802. But it seems, that it is already done. Patch gives me the following output:

patching file firegl_public.c
Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected!  Assume -R? [n] n
Apply anyway? [n] n
Skipping patch.
patch: **** malformed patch at line 18:

Problem is solved. I've just upgraded to lenny. With the xen-kernel and ati-drivers from lenny, everything works!


debian, fglrx, xen
