Default Graphic problem on Debian testing installed on Dell Optiplex 960

Hi
I have a Debian testing 64 bits running on a Dell Optiplex 960.

I have three different kernels installed: 2.6.32-5, 3.2.0-1 and 3.2.0-2.

Until a recent upgrade (through apt-get update/apt-get upgrade), I
could not use the Gnome login screen with kernel versions 3.2.0-1 and
3.2.0-2: the top of the screen displayed a strange random pattern of
pixels of many colors and the bottom of the screen was black. However,
in this case, I was able to use GUI login, and, thus, Debian by using
2.6.32-5 kernel.

After a recent upgrade, the Gnome login screen is now not even
available with the 2.6.32-5 kernel. I only have a black screen with a
cursor on the top-right corner and a rectangle constituted of random
pixels in black and white located at the left of the screen and close
to the top of the screen.

I tried to remove the gdm3 package. This allow me reach the login
console with the 2.6.32-5 kernel. In this case, I also have a
rectangle constituted of random pixels in black and white located at
the same place: left of the screen and close to the top of the screen.
And, I still have the same bug as before with kernel versions 3.2.0-1
and 3.2.0-2: random pattern of pixels in many colors on top of the
screen and black on the bottom of the screen.
I tried to use the command startx when I am in the console but there
is a problem. I do not copy here the result but I can extract. I think
that this problem is causing the trouble with Gnome.

Lspci finds this graphic card:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee
ATI RV620 LE [Radeon HD 3450] (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Subsystem: Dell Device 0342
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 16
Memory at d0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
Memory at fe9f0000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
I/O ports at dc00 [size=256]
Expansion ROM at fea00000 [disabled] [size=128K]
Capabilities: <access denied>
Kernel driver in use: radeon

I have no idea how to fix this problem.
I would be grateful is somebody could help me fix it.
Regards.
Johan

Default Graphic problem on Debian testing installed on Dell Optiplex 960

I just installed ATI proprietary driver: fglrx.
I can now access the Gnome login screen with any version of the
kernel. I however have several problems with the multi-screen
management through the Catalyst Control Center. I thus cannot use this
solution permanently.

However, I think that this prove that the non-proprietary ATI driver
are here the source of my trouble.
Does anyone knows how to fix this ?
Regards.
Johan

..I disagree, I'd say it's the package's suggestion of linux-firmware
rather than depending on it.

> Does anyone knows how to fix this ?

.."aptitude install linux-firmware", you need linux-firmware-non-free,
libdrm2 and libdrm-radeon1 too, and radeon needs booting with KMS.

Default Graphic problem on Debian testing installed on Dell Optiplex 960

I installed firmware-linux, firmware-linus-non-free, libdrm2 and libdrm-radeon1.
I think that radeon is starting with KMS because there is a file
called radeon-kms.conf in /etc/modprobe.d/ that contains "options
radeon modeset=1".

This fixed the problem for kernels 3.2.0-1 and 3.2.0-2.
There is however still a problem with kernel 2.6.32-5 : rectangle of
random black and white pixels disappeared but gnome login screen
doesn't work. I don't know if Debian want to fix this or not. If yes,
I would be glad to help in terms of testing.

Thanks a lot for your help.
Regards.
Johan

..verify that with e.g. 'dmesg |grep modeset' or 'dmesg |grep radeon'
or some such search.
