I just spent a few hours trying to find out what the problem is with my Debian. I just replaced Fedora Core 3 to Debian unstable on my notebook. It’s a HP nx9010, equipped with Radeon IGP:

0000:01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon IGP 340M

There was no video from noatun and xine. After some googling around I found that my DRI is not working. Great.

However, all is fine now. I found this great site http://www.nixnuts.net/files/README.txt

Basically what I have to do was add these to my /etc/apt/source.list:

deb http://www.nixnuts.net/files/ ./
deb-src http://www.nixnuts.net/files/ ./

and do this:

# apt-get -u install xlibmesa-gl1-dri-trunk

This fixes everything, even the annoying flickers on my screen on high resolutions. Now I can enjoy 1280×1024 on external monitor! 😀

Good job John Lightsey, thanks a bunch!

p/s – Somehow I find that Debian runs faster on my laptop compared to Fedora. 😐

Note: This effectively changes your X server to Xorg instead of XFree86.
