Default 64 Studio Lenny and proprietary driver for an integrated ATI


The integrated ATI is a Radeon X1250-based graphics and the mobo is an

The actual state of affairs:

* (EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libGLcore.so
(EE) Failed to load module "GLcore" (loader failed, 7)
(EE) fglrx(0): atiddxDriScreenInit failed, GPS not been initialized.
(EE) AIGLX: Screen 0 is not DRI capable
* If the USB-MIDInterface is fine, the TerraTec sound card isn't fine.
If the TerraTec soundcard is fine, the USB-MIDI isn't fine.
This might has to do with the ATI driver.
* DVD-RAM won't work. This definitively is independent of the ATI

What I've done:

1. I enabled the repository for Lenny and disabled all other
I reloaded package information and after this Synaptic does this:

Upgraded the following packages:
xorg (1:7.1.0-19) to 1:7.3+10

Installed the following packages:
libgl1-mesa-swx11 (7.0.3-1)
libgl1-mesa-swx11-dbg (7.0.3-1)
libgl1-mesa-swx11-dev (7.0.3-1)
libosmesa6 (7.0.3-1)
mesa-swx11-source (7.0.3-1)

I disabled the repository for Lenny and enabled some other
repositories and after that Synaptic does an upgrade of Ardour.
2. I downloaded the Linux 86_64 Integrated/Motherboard Radeon Xpress
1250 installer from http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html.
It's fromMay 21, 2008 and includes the automated installer and
display drivers for X.Org 6.7, 6.8, 6.9, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3.
The installed package xorg is version 1:7.3-10 and Synaptic can't
find any broken packages.
3. While doing the download, I've taken a look at the ATI proprietary
Linux driver FAQs, but there I also can't find any help.
4. The only kernel now is 2.6.21-1-multimedia-amd64, headers are also
5. 64studio:/home/spinymouse/Desktop/tmp# sh
6. It seems to be "All good".
7. I choose "Install Driver"
8. I choose "Automatic" mode of installation.
9. Instead of killing X I've done a reboot (xorg.conf is still an
optimized one for the ATI driver, I won't attach it now, because
this might stop this mail from coming direct through the list and
only will cause the administrators work).
10. spinymouse@64studio:~$ grep "EE" /var/log/Xorg.0.log
Current Operating System: Linux 64studio 2.6.21-1-multimedia-amd64

Nothing changed for the ATI driver. I'll copy the xorg.conf into another
mail right now.

Any ideas, what I'm doing wrong?
