however there is a problem that ati website doesn't have version of
their driver for 6.9. is it safe to get version for 6.8? (actually it
seems to me that none of their drivers is intended for 6.9)
The RPMs on ATI's website are only for 6.8 and tyay don't work with 6.9.
The ATI installer contains binaries for 6.9 that should work (at least
on i386; AFAIK nobody tested it on amd64 yet) but you'll need to tweak
it a bit. See Debian bug #345755 for more information.
Also, ati-driver-installer*.run --buildpkg Debian/experimental may or
may not work.
