    after run scripts i got safe-mode and xorg conf down (lost russian keymap)
    Of course i restore last normal state (Without 3d,but 1280x1024+rus keymap)
    Vesa+Mesa=crap, no one game runs.
    And ATI drivers for 64 bit is full crap - no 3D present
    I lost >200 hours summary from month to install it and i get only catalyst, and no _3D_.
    Ati for 32bit is half-crap , runs only 1\2 of existed games.

    God help up...
    MAybe 1-5 years later, and i see _normal_ release driver from ATI\AMD
    I'm in weakness...Maybe buy S3 Virge DX 4Mb?

    You can test 3d in live mode too.

    http://debian.tu-bs.de/project/kanot...-2-generic.iso
    http://debian.tu-bs.de/project/kanot...eneric.iso.md5

    Only 3d app preinstalled is gl2benchmark. This live system does not hurt your install, it seems you changed too much manually to let my script fully work. I guess I could fix your system with ssh access but I see no real reason to do so as you don't use Kanotix.

    What is Kanotix? It's another Ubuntu 8 core files?

    I basically use Debian etch + losts of backports (but no newer KDE or GNOME) + latest kernels based on Ubuntu sources. This demonstration iso is not installable, but Thorhammer can be installed and the same kernel added.

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    # Well, you can force it when you add the pci id
    
    lspci -n|awk -F'[ :]' '/0300/{print "FGL_ASIC_ID(0x"toupper($6)"),"}' >> /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/fglrxko_pci_ids.h
    
    cd /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod
    ./make.sh
    
    cd /lib/modules/fglrx
    ./make_install.sh
    
    #That change will allow you to still use your other card - but the pciid is #added to the new one. After that you add an override in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    
    perl -pi.backup -e 's/(Driver.*"fglrx".*\n)/\1\tChipID\t0x9501\n/' /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    
    #That should let the driver work - just with ATI unsupported hardware in one corner.
