Hi! 
Yesterday I worked over the problem, but before to give you a summary of my attempts ,I have a little question:
what is the difference  between writing in

/etc/X11/xorg.conf

and

/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-radeon.conf

???
I used the first option and now I ll' try to change to see if there are some improvements...
Summary of yesterday:

In the morning i tried to follow that howtos :

https://wiki.debian.org/AtiHowTo

and

https://wiki.debian.org/ATIProprietary 

but I didn't solve it, I probably had something wrong ...

in the afternoon I was at a meeting of my nearest LUG and they try to help me.

They find an error like this,

radeon_cp: Failed to load firmware "radeon/R100_cp.bin

a guy find that there is a bug over R100 and kernel but now I dont find the webpage.
I dont' exacty understand but there was a problem with the loading of the firmware by the kernel(it tries to load something before the mounting of filesystem) ,so  they move it into initramfs and it works, badly and slowly...probably due to my morning mistakes and the meetein time that was ending...

Now I'm trying to repeat the procedure correctly and to clean up any wrong configuration files

thank you so much for your help!

I resolved soundcard problem, now audio works well.
It was a kmix graphical configuration problem.

other outputs:

Usage:
  glxheads xdisplayname ...
Example:
  glxheads :0 mars:0 venus:1

  GL_RENDERER: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 3.9, 128 bits)
Segmentation fault

Hi, thanks for all!!

this is the output  :

glxinfo | grep direct
direct rendering: Yes
    GL_ARB_direct_state_access, GL_ARB_draw_buffers,
    GL_ARB_draw_indirect, GL_ARB_draw_instanced, GL_ARB_enhanced_layouts,
    GL_ARB_multi_draw_indirect, GL_ARB_occlusion_query2,

I think it'll be useful this..

Hi everybody!
I' m very happy to announce the install of a deuvan derivative on my old laptop, but I have some problems with opengl and soundcard.
for example after installing mesa package and launcing glxgears I obtain segmentation fault...
Is it possible to find some informations from the configuration of an old kubuntu 8.04 in other partition? It works fine ma there are no package online more and no security upgrades so I can't use it
Thank you very much
best regards
