    Thanks Kano, that script is for Kantonix & I'm using Debian, although I think it is based on Debian. When I do try to run it anyway it gives errors about not being Kantonix & that the script must be run outwith X! Is there a Debian version available?

    Is the script purely for better fglrx installation so that it doesn't break with other system updates, or are there other improvements that would solve the video playback problem I described? You can tell I'm not a power-user/programmer!

      As long as your Xserver is not too new, like Debian squeeze is too new it does not break anything. It needs a correct (or missing) xorg.conf file, so

      rm -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf
      dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

      will be ok. Debian lenny writes for example keyboard settings in there. For newer distros this file just does not exist.

        I also have the Radeon HD 4650 AGP 1GB card and it works as well as it could using FGLRX. The only problem I'm having is the same with the open source radeon and radeonhd drivers. Using the latest radeon git was the only way I was able to get my desktop running on open source drivers and anything 3D besides Kwin desktop effects will crash X.

        FGLRX works on my end perfectly. It may be the hardware (Shuttle nForce 2) or the software mix, who knows.

        It's running Debian Sid (Xserver and Xorg packages are on hold for 1.6.5) + the Liquorix kernels (

        The Liquorix kernels have MTRR cleanup support enabled + x86 PAT support - this may explain why I'm having more success than the rest of you
