Question compiz-fusion-gnome don't work after debian lenny update

Hi there.

I have a Debian Lenny GNU/Linux box.

Compiz-fusion was working great until I updated system.
No critical packages were updated.

I have and ATI Radeon Xpress 200M video card. I use fglrx propietary driver.

The output of fglrxinfo is:
display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: ATI Radeon Xpress Series
OpenGL version string: 2.1.8304 Release
My /var/log/apt/term.log is too long for including it here.

I don't know if it is related with the base-files package or any config file related.

When I try to run
compiz --replace
the output is:
compiz (core) - Fatal: No GLXFBConfig for default depth, this isn't going to work.
compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0
When I run
nothing happens.
When my gnome session start, It doesn't have any window manager or decorator.

Any help will be really apreciated.

Perhaps try reinstalling the ATI driver? Just a thought

There seem to be some dependency problems with compiz in the Debian packages at the moment. Have you tried installing libcompizconfig0? There are several reports of this fixing startup problems, and it also worked for me.
