Okay,  after yhe install I arrived to the Grub Boot, enter the e and add "radeon.modeset=0",  hit control x,  then try to boot and in the load proccess all the letters looks fuzzy,  and when I try to open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+F1) It looks fuzzy also.  Appears and disappears (I have to hit Ctrl+alt+F1 so it appears again.  I have tried to enter my autentication a zillion time and it says the same a other install tries: Authentication Failure. I'm not such a  moron,, I've tried everything that this instrucions detail...

given the result, I assume you added the cheatcode in the wrong line. You first have to navigate the cursor to the right place ***behind "ro quiet "***. After editing this line should read something like ....
<vmlinuz> ... ro quiet radeon.modeset=0
Ok, you can't code, but you still might be able to write a bug report for Debian's sake

I'll give up,  nothing works... maybe my machine is not made for Siduction.  Back to Debian Sid.  I'll add Siduction sources and repositories.

Sid will have the very same problem, which all ATI cards share atm.
The easiest thing is use failsafe option on the live iso, boot it, install firmware-linux-nonfree and install siduction after that.

All done and good to go.

I ALREADY have a running Debian Sid with KDE,  Liquorix kernels and SMXI on one of my partitions and it melts like butter.  
On the other hand, (devil) I don't know how to install firmwarelinux-nonfree-- live or after the HD install???  Because after the HD install I can't open anything.  
Also (towo) when to delete this file??? Live or after the HD install???  Believe me when I say that I'll do my best to make it happen...

1. start live with safe settings
2. after start, add non-free to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.list
3. apt-get update && apt-get install firmware-linux-nonfree
4. install siduction
5. mount the partition where you have installed siduction
6. delete there /etc/X11/xorg.conf
7. reboot

realy hard?

towo and devil: I've seen the same problem in the forums so a humble suggestion would be to publish a "sticky" of this step by step tutorial.

Now this become interesting: even after following devil, towo and blackone tutorial,  after the Grub screen,  the screen became very fuzzy but it get fixed before the login screen.  Then something happened: started experimenting with Liquorix kernels and VOILA!!! A very clean boot and load process. Maybe I'm wrong (I'm miles apart from beeing an expert) but that's why I don't have the problem with my Debian Sid KDE with Liquorix and SMXI script. I thing that the towo's kernel need some adjusting to work appropiately with the ATI Radeon HD. :roll:
