I have a ATI 9200 graphics card RV280. I am trying to install to proprietary driver to have Compiz/Beryl to work.
I have downloaded ati-driver-installer-8.28.8.run; been doing bash ./ati-driver-installer-8.28.8.run --buildpkg Debian/sid. Then i have
Package /home/helge/ati/fglrx-driver_8.28.8-1_i386.deb has been successfully generated
Package /home/helge/ati/fglrx-driver-dev_8.28.8-1_i386.deb has been successfully generated
Package /home/helge/ati/fglrx-kernel-src_8.28.8-1_i386.deb has been successfully generated

Package /home/helge/ati/fglrx-sources_8.28.8-1_i386.deb has been successfully generated
/home/helge/ati/fglrx-install
When I do dpkg -i fglrx-driver_8.28.8-1_i386.deb it gives:
fglrx-driver demands xserver-xorg (<< 1:7.0.99). But: Version of xserver-xorg on the system is 1:7.1.0-6.
But according to the ATI web side: This should be an "Automated installer and Display Drivers for XFree86 4.3 and X.Org 6.7, 6.8, 6.9, 7.0, 7.1".
What can be the reason for this? Is there any method to fix the installer script? Do I have to downgrade to xserver-xorg 6,9??
By the way: I have installed the fglrx-driver from Ubuntu. This gives:
fglrxinfo
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Tungsten Graphics, Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI R200 20060602 AGP 1x TCL
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.3 Mesa 6.5.1)
And:
glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: No
Can I expect the same good result with Beryl and fglrx-drives as with the proprietary ATI driver?
