Read the "Question Guidelines" link in my posting signature. We will be happy to help, but we need details before we can even ATTEMPT to. You're loading Debian 7...why? The latest is 9.5. And you don't tell us ANYTHING about your hardware (laptop? Desktop? which video card?? ANYTHING?), or how you got to where you are now. We have no information..post details, and we can try to help.

Start with loading the latest Debian, if that's the distro you want to start with.

Ok...but you still don't tell us anything that might let us help you. Again, unless you tell us what video card, system details, etc., we can't even try. Chances are VERY good that the built-in Linux driver will work just fine with your card, if you run an up-to-date distro.

i dont have video card i did edit thread again, if you need more system details can you explain what information you need?
also i tried install that driver in debian 9 and ubuntu 16 lts its not installable, it stucks at reading kernel headers then it gives compile error code lines (for module loader i remember it as firegl loader or something), i also tried fix compile errors i thought i finally success but after reboot system stucked

(this message has very language problems sorry for that)

Don't edit your original posts, as it only makes it confusing; post the information in the follow ups. Based on this:
Code:
OS: Debian 7 amd64
Cpu: amd a10 7890k
Gpu: nothing
Driver name: Crimson Edition 15.12
...we STILL have no idea about your system. You mention Debian 9 and Ubuntu 16...but then say you're using Debian 7 (still). You say it's an AMD A10 CPU...great. Now how about telling us what kind of COMPUTER it's in (brand/model???) And you claim to not have a GPU...sorry, no. If you don't have a video card, you won't be able to have ANY monitors hooked up. So back to "What is the brand/model of the video card??"

AGAIN: Current distros should easily be able to detect/use the open source ATI driver with no problems at all..you should not have to use the proprietary driver, at all. Again, why are you using a very old Debian release (and Ubuntu is up to 18.04, not 16), and why won't you use the current versions, as suggested???

monitor's vga cable plugged to motherboard, there is no external video card on pci* or agp*
in newest distros yes it installs open source drivers automatic, but that driver dont have hardware acceleration or OpenCL (maybe i didnt test very well)
fglrx comes with hardware acceleration support like what you see in vainfo, open source default driver dont show any codec when i type vainfo
and fglrx has better fps for opengl games (maybe im wrong but glxgears gives me like 1.5x fps (when compared with ubuntu 16 lts's xorg default driver))

Oh yes, you do not have an external (real) video card built (put) into your system. But anyway you have a video card which is on your motherboard and works more or less the same way as any external video card. So the answer is: yes, you have a video card, just you didn't buy any, it was already on the mobo. When you check the home page you will see there is a radeon R7 chip inside.
The others are unclear for me because I think the regular X system should handle it without problems. I don't really know if /dev/dri should exist and why do you need to install catalist. Also please try the latest ubuntu (live CD) or something similar to check if that works.

Yes, it does.

fglrx is part of the proprietary driver:
https://wiki.debian.org/ATIProprietary

Again: the latest distros likely support the chipset have, with full hardware acceleration.
https://wiki.debian.org/AtiHowTo

Again: Load the latest version of Debian (although I'd strongly suggest Ubuntu or Mint), and you're done.

I think the driver is built into the X server engine you do not need to install anything. But probably I missed something.

for now i get 90~ fps from glxgears 1920x1080 (with debian 9), i was get 2150fps from glxgears 1920x1080 (with debian 7 and fglrx driver)

also

~$ vainfo
libva info: VA-API version 0.39.4
libva info: va_getDriverName() returns -1
libva error: va_getDriverName() failed with unknown libva error,driver_name=(null)
vaInitialize failed with error code -1 (unknown libva error),exit

***AGAIN*** You DO NOT have to do anything else, load anything else, download anything else. You're done. The drivers you're downloading are deprecated, and the AMD-GPUPRO isn't for your card. The base, stock Debian 9 drivers ALREADY CONTAINS hardware acceleration, and would most probably have worked fine, had you not done what you've done. Reload your OS, from scratch.

i didnt install gpupro or fglrx for debian 9 (i cant even install), everything is STOCK.

i already have that packages (they came with apt-get install xorg):
xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu
xserver-xorg-video-radeon
xserver-xorg-video-ati

how i did got those drivers (there is no any external install, if you have better idea for what i need install say to me):
sudo apt-get install xorg
sudo apt-get install i3
sudo reboot
startx

nothing is working fine about stock drivers, i get bad fps in my web browser too and you keep saying `stock drivers contains hardware acceleration`

That's because they do. I looked up and provided two links for you previously, where Debian 9 is specifically mentioned, tells you that the glxgears test isn't a good one to base overall performance on, and tells you what/how to load what you need. And also, again, the amdgpu package isn't for your chipset.

Also suggested that you load Ubuntu or Mint, both of which are Debian based, but may provide an easier path for you. Good luck.
