This is probably something that should be discussed initially via a
Debian support channel (e.g. mailing list, forums etc) before coming to
upstream. You'll likely find a better experience that way.

That said, do you know if the updated fglrx driver still supports you
ATI h/w? It could be that support has been removed. Perhaps using the
open source driver instead would be a better option? Again some Debian
specific support would likely help you try that out easily :)

Good luck
