    Hmm, it looks like the sources given on the site don't work, or there are some weird dependency issues. I'm not sure which. Since I've never used debian for more than an afternoon i'm no expert on it. Maybe someone which is used to it can give you a hand.

    From the above link:
    "The following packages install the ATI driver for X.Org 6.8.0 for the i386 architecture."

    So, are you running Xorg => 6.8.0?
    If not, the way you install the fglrx-driver package won't matter.

    See your apt-install output:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    fglrx-driver: Depends: xserver-xorg (>= 6.8.0)

    You must always install the dependent packages first.
    To find xorg packages goto Debian-Linux-Systeme.

    Also, you don't need to add it to your sources.list. You can just download it and do
    Code:
    dpkg -i <pkg>.deb
    (I think)

    Xorg is a X window system technology. It allows you to move beyond the command prompt and have things like desktop environments. Debian Sarge installs with XFree86 for its window system, which is not a problem save that the driver you want to install will only accept Xorg.

    Xorg Foundation
    XFree86 Project

    So, you would have to remove XFree86 and install Xorg before even trying to install your fglrx-driver. This can not be done within the Debian testing repositories and so that is why Apt is giving you installation errors. But it is definitely telling you what you are lacking in order to complete the driver configuration.

    How to install Xorg? See my previous post.
    The repo instructions are at the website that I linked.

    You need to install (at a minimum) the x-window-system package.
