Default Blurry X11 fonts in Lenny after update

I recently updated my laptop running lenny and the X11 fonts became
blurry, kind of clumsy looking. The GNOME appearence preferences do
nothing. I use XOrg, the standard 100dpi xfonts, ATI Radeon card with
the fglrx driver, just stardard stuff. I installed xfs to see if it
helps, but not.

This is the second time I encounter this problem. The last time was when
upgrading from Ubuntu Breezy to Dapper. I could never solve the problem,
and after much cursing I went back to sarge. Few seem to have seen this
problem, and it's perhaps related to the graphics card, but it's
certainly related to a xserver-xorg update in lenny. I saw this problem
right after the update and reboot.

Has anybody seen this? Any suggestions?

Cheers,
Ricardo

OK, found the problem. It's the fglrx driver. Switched to the ati driver
and things are back to normal. I guess this card is now supported by the
ati driver (didn't used to.)


The graphics card is,

1002:5460 ATI Technologies Inc M22 [Radeon Mobility M300]
