FGLRX / AMD Catalyst is the non-free proprietary display driver for the
ATI/AMD RadeonHD and FireGL graphics cards. As an alternative, you may try
the newest free driver xserver-xorg-video-radeon.
This legacy driver release supports the following graphics adapter families:
AMD Radeon HD 4000, AMD Radeon HD 3000, and AMD Radeon HD 2000.
This package provides the kernel build environment and the fglrx modules,
which are necessary to have accelerated 3D support within the ATI/AMD
proprietary display driver.
This package contains the source for the fglrx kernel module for use with
module-assistant or make-kpkg or other manual build methods.
