I *had* everything working including accelerated graphics (ATI drivers) from the install-kernel-sources-vanilla.sh script followed by the install-radeon-debian.sh. But I hosed my system fooling around with changing the grub graphics and had to re-install (yesterday), but one of the files that the kernel sources script looks for cannot be downloaded. I think the server (http://www.polbox.com
) for that file is temporarily down (it keeps timing out). So, since my reinstall, I have not gotten the radeon drivers re-installed. Kanotix 2005-2 is around the corner and does not require the kernel sources to install radeon drivers, so I am waiting for either polbox.com to come back up, or the 2005-2 64 bit version of Kanotix to come out. In the mean time, I have everything except the radeon drivers working.
Something very important when running those radeon install scripts is to completely close your display manger first.
1. Log out of session,
2. use ctrl > alt > F2 to get to a non-graphical console, and
3. use /etc/init.d/kdm stop to end display manager
Prior to this problem, Kanotix was great. I should have left well enough alone, but I like tinkering
