Package: xserver-xorg-video-radeon
Version: 1:6.14.4-5
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I get no video, only colored snow.  Boot seems OK up until X is started.
The system is then unusable.  (I am writing from a different wheezy

Hardware: Zotac ZBox (AMD E-350 /Radeon HD 6310 graphics), VGA connector.
Architecture: amd64.  Memory: 2Gb.

OS: Debian/Wheezy live install: created on 9/12/2012 using
http://live-build.debian.net/cgi-bin/live-build system.

Boot method: from isohybrid iso on a usb drive.

Kernel: 3.2.0-3-amd64
xorg: 1:7.1+1
xserver-xorg-video-radeon: 1:6.14.4-5

According to http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/xserver-xorg-video-radeon
this video should be supported (it is a "PALM" card).

According to http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Debian_Open_Source this
video card should need xorg driver 6.14.2.

I can provide the live .iso and/or build directory if helpful.

Thanks for any suggestions or help.
