apt-cache policy fglrx-driver
Quote from: MoroS on May 23, 2015, 08:17:43 AMFirst time I've heard about openglrx. The tell the truth it's also the first time Google heard about openglrx. :P The situation is clear after seeing the Xorg logs: it was about fglrx (but maybe the message you saw was something new, who knows...).And it looks like we've hit a wall with this one. The fglrx-driver package has been pulled out of Testing due to bugs and unsatisfied dependencies:https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/fglrx-driverThis tends to happen with proprietary drivers and probably will be resolved in a matter of days. For the time being it's probably unusable, so you'll probably will have to stick to the open "radeon" driver. You can still check the output of dmesg for any fglrx-related messages. Maybe it's still fixable in the current state, if the fglrx-package was not removed. You can check that using apt-cache:Code Select Expandapt-cache policy fglrx-driverIf it shows you still have that package installed, then post anything from dmesg related to fglrx or ATI. We'll try to figure something out. If the package is not there anymore, then you'll have to wait for it to return to Testing and stick with the "radeon" driver.

The next step was to change the "fglrx" entry in xorg.conf (or one of the files in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d) to "radeon" entry, but I see you already did that. You can check the bug tracker link I posted previously once a while to see if the package has made it back to Testing and then reinstall it, to use fglrx again. Anyway, glad you were able to work around the problem. :)
