Default About ATI drivers and xorg.conf

Hi

a few days ago I'm trying to operate a card
Technologies Inc R200 BB [Radeon All in Wonder 8500DV]

Use Debian squeeze

I managed to run the ati-driver-installer-8.38.6-4 and generated
x86.x86_64.run
packages. deb and dpkg install.

After having generated this run

but when I run glxinfo | grep render me back

Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting
LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)
GLX_ATI_pixel_format_float, GLX_ATI_render_texture
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI R200 (R200 4242) 20090101 x86/MMX/SSE2
TCL DRI2

the xorg.conf configuration file

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen 0 "aticonfig-Screen[0]" 0 0
InputDevice "Generic Keyboard"
InputDevice "Configured Mouse"
Option "AIGLX" "true"
EndSection

Section "Files"
EndSection

Section "Module"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "aticonfig-Monitor[0]"
Option "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
Option "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"
Option "DPMS" "true"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "aticonfig-Device[0]"
Driver "fglrx"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "aticonfig-Screen[0]"
Device "aticonfig-Device[0]"
Monitor "aticonfig-Monitor[0]"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "DRI"
Mode 0666
EndSection


On the other hand I tried to convert and install the 2 files the free and
not free from ATI and I could not.

fglrx64_4_3_0-8.28.8-1.x86_64.rpm and fglrx64_6_8_0-8.28.8-1.x86_64.rpm

Thanks in advance
Cosme

..this works with the radeon driver.
ATI/AMD quit supporting your card many years ago.

Scenarios always come in sets of three:
best case, worst case, and just in case.
