Hey Stefano,

What instructions did you follow? I'm interested on testing this (HD 4850 here).

just if anyone is interested... I compiled mesa 7.9 and tried the radeon 
gallium driver on a X300 ati card. It works pretty good. For instance, now I 
can use the blur effect of kwin 4.5, while I couldn't with classic mesa 7.9 
driver. I don't play games, so I cannot tell what is different with games...

Maybe we might have an ati-dri package in [testing] that ships r300g instead 
of r300c...
