    ati hd2600 driver

    My graphics card, an ATI radeon 9500 has gone to graphicscardheaven
    With this card 3d acceleeration and Compiz worked fine in Hardy.

    I replaced this card with an ATI Radeon HD2600 pro agp. (RV630)
    Now when using the restricted driver the screen goes black after startup and before the login.

    When I use the command
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
    the restricted driver is uninstalled and the xorg.conf looks like this:

    Code:
    # xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
    #
    # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
    # values from the debconf database.
    #
    # Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
    # (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
    #
    # This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
    # if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
    # package.
    #
    # If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
    # again, run the following command:
    #   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

    When Compiz turned on, the screen goes white and I have to rest by using ALT-F2 and metacity --replace.

    I also reinstalled Hardy from scratch but that didn't help.

    At http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ca..._86_linux.html this note looks promissing:
    Note: AGP variants for the ATI Radeon™ HD 2400 and 2600 series of products is now supported with this release of the AMD Proprietary Linux driver.
    How do I install this driver and do I risk to ruin my system?
