I just attached both files.

I'm sorry if this is due to some misconfiguration of mine. I tried to search
the web for the error messages in Xorg log to sort it out by myself, but to no

But I don't know why this kernel module is not loaded.

In /etc/modprobe.d, radeonfb is blacklisted, but not radeon, and I read that
blacklisting radeonfb has nothing to do with this and is the right thing to do

BTW, I should mention that this computer used to have an NVidia card and used
nouveau driver. After it broke, I changed for this ATI card and didn't do
anything special to have it supported since xserver-xorg-video-* packages of
all kinds are already installed in Debian, including the radeon one, and it all
worked well, or so did I think.

Please redirect me to forums/StackExchange/anywhere if I'm wasting your time.
