ATI/Radeon cards are kind of problematic.  Guess you were bitten in some way as I have :(, as I have an integrated ATI card:

01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RS690 [Radeon X1200 Series]

while I can at least run it, before my machine was freezing for no apparent reason.  Do you have any proprietary drivers installed?

Also do you have an xorg.conf file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf?

Regards,

Antonio
