    Unhappy Radeon 9200 on Debian

    Troubles with ATI card, nothing new eh?
    I have tried for hours searching forums and such but have not found a solution.

    1. installed the latest ATI proprietary drivers on a new Debian install for a 9200 Radeon
    2. switched to init 3 and tried to run the aticonfig --initial

    the error I get is:
    Using XF86Config-4
    illegal instruction

    when I try and run X a large list of unresolved symbols displays followed by this error message:
    Fatal server error:
    Caught Signal 4. Server Aborting

    along with....
    XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server":0.0"
    after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

    I need some serious help with this.
    Thanks to all.

    I don't think you will need to install any proprietary driver with Radeon 9200, just set the card driver name as "radeon" in your XF86Config-4 file. If the 3D acceleration doesn't work, just upgrade to XOrg 7.0 from a Debian mirror.
