However you can manually install the 13.11 beta 6 version.

ATTENTION RADEON USERS NOTE: If you enter your card information on AMD/ATI's driver page, it will offer you the Catalyst 9-3 driver to download. If your card is on that list, you are limited to open-source drivers on Debian Squeeze/6.0 (and later). We believe that the knowledge, which is available at the most popular Russian IT blog geektimes.ru, should be accessed by everyone, even though it is poorly translated. The "ATI Catalyst™ Display Driver" released in March 26 2009 do not need to kernel sources be downloaded.
That worked (apparently) and I notice the libglx.so file has been replaced with one installed at the time I was running the ATI installer. Generic Config This will work for most people: $ sudo aticonfig --initial -f If you are using dual head, that is to say, two _different_ desktops on two monitors, do this: Before Starting If you have previously attempted installing Catalyst, remove any leftover files by following the Removing the Driver section.
See the complete list here. Shared knowledge makes the world better. At the time of making this edit beta version 12.6 also works just fine. Firmware-linux-nonfree Note: libraries are not searched in other binary packages that do not have any shlibs or symbols file.
Old version have made problems with wine games , something like "malloc() corruption memory" and segfault.

The flicker is annoying but not so bad as the slowness of the ATI fglrx driver I'd managed to get installed.

If you tried to install Catalyst on a system with one of these cards, see the 'Removing the Driver' section to restore the default/pre-installed drivers. First it is necessary to change ati-packager.sh script.

Research is to be continued. Check This Out Prerequisite Packages Install the prerequisite packages (names are based on Debian sid, older Debians may be different): $ sudo apt-get install build-essential cdbs fakeroot dh-make debhelper debconf libstdc++6 dkms libqtgui4 wget After fixing this, I came to another error complaining about fglrx_gamma… I found the solution at http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Hardy_Installation_Guide#Fix_for_an_error which basically involves extracting the driver then setting a link to the package - Read Me Second:SLEEP mode in Debian/testing kernel 3.2.0 amd-driver-installer-catalyst-12.10-x86.x86_64.run breaks sleeping mode(notebook hangs up after awaking and reboot without logging anything ).

At the moment the latest version — 10.5. Were put by the described method of the driver with a bang, recent updating of the free radeonhd driver caused the conflict which was eliminated in a couple of minutes.
