the xorg-xserver searche for its drivers in:


with installed 'fglrx' you can find a symlink called which points (essentially) to /usr/lib/fglrx/xorg/modules/drivers/ you can find out the name of the package providing that file by

% dpkg -S /usr/lib/fglrx/xorg/modules/drivers/

which should result in fglrx. you can find out the rest of the files belonging to that package with:

% dpkg -L fglrx
