    Code:
    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep -i render
    then?

    Well... you may want to digg a little deeper with the ATI proprietary drivers.

    They should work using the "xorg-driver-fglrx" package. I'm sure you'll get them to work, some day, somehow.

    Did you do those steps while installing them?
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xorg-driver-fglrx
    sudo aticonfig --initial
    sudo aticonfig --overlay-type-Xv
    Check out this thread on the Ubuntu forums, you might find an answer there :

    ATI and Debian

    Hello.

    I've a problem. I've just dist-upgraded my Debian, and my 'fglrx' doesn't work, my X couldn't be loaded.

    (before the upgrade everything was working fine)

    could somebody help me?

    That means you either upgraded X or the kernel.

    If it's the kernel, simply rebuild the fglrx kernel module.

    Hmm.. i'm having similar problems with my ATI X800GTO now. I'm pretty sure it worked the first couple days, but then when i added KDE, or around that time, it starting giving errors:

    Code:
    $ glxinfo | grep direct
    Xlib:  extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":1.0".
    direct rendering: No
    --edit--

    gonna try dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg now.. I had tried earlier and was getting errors, but realized it was because of an incomplete package update, and was able to fix the problem. will post results in a bit.

    Thanks!

    Went through dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg using flglx for driver, but still no luck. :\
