Hey, subtle must be your mdidle name. Great post!
----
+
As of November 2005, ATI's drivers are in the non-free area of Debian. Make sure your /etc/apt/sources.list contains "contrib non-free" as well as main. You will, however, have to build your own kernel modules.
+
 
+
''Warning: do not mix the non-free packages with the packages created by the installer as they will conflict in non-obvious ways.  Before switching from one method to another, completely remove all fglrx-related packages.  Never do upgrade from one method to another directly!''
+
 
+
You're the graeetst! JMHO

+
== Confirm that it worked ==
+
<pre>
+
$ fglrxinfo
+
display: :0.0  screen: 0
+
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
+
OpenGL renderer string: MOBILITY RADEON 9700 Generic
+
OpenGL version string: 1.3.5461 (X4.3.0-8.19.10)
+
</pre>
+
 
+
If it didn't work, you may need to run:
+
<pre>
+
# mkdir -p /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri
+
# ln -s /usr/lib/dri/fglrx_dri.so /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri
+
</pre>
+

Thanks to Maciej Matysiak for the clear debug [http://lists.debian.org/debian-amd64/2006/02/msg00217.html here] and solution [http://lists.debian.org/debian-amd64/2006/02/msg00311.html here].
+
 
+
If it's still not working, try:
+
<pre>
+
# rm /usr/lib/libGL.so*
+
# rm /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so*
+
# cd /usr/X11R6/lib
+
# cp /usr/lib/fglrx/diversions/lib/libGL.so.1.2 .
+
# ln -s libGL.so.1.2 libGL.so.1
+
# ldconfig
+
</pre>
+
and confirm that 'ldd /usr/bin/fglrxinfo' is pointing to the right one.
+
 
+
 
+
People seem to be experiencing a broken libGL.so.1 after installing 8.41 on Debian/etch.  If `amdcccle` complains that libGL.so.1 does't exist, DONT DELETE /usr/lib/libGL.so.1.2 LIKE IT SAYS ABOVE.  Make symbolic link to libGL.so.1.2 (which is included in fglrx package - 14 megs in size):
+
<pre>
+
# cd /usr/lib
+
# ln -s libGL.so.1.2 libGL.so.1
+
</pre>
