    6.8 works fine with the ati-drivers, BUT 3d acceleration does not work with 6.8.

    Can you not use something like 'apt-get install xorg-x11-6.7.0-r2' to install a specific version of some software with apt?

    I don't see x.org in the "official ones" yet...... looks like it time for you to do a little googling
