Hmm, I think I have glx working, but maybe something needs to be

My laptop uses an ATI Radeon Mobility M7 LW [Radeon Mobility 7500].
In addition to the packages shown below, I have the following

ii  libgl1-mesa-dri          6.5.0.cvs.20060524-1.1  
ii  libgl1-mesa-glx          6.5.0.cvs.20060524-1.1  
ii  mesa-utils               6.3.2-2.1               
ii  xlibmesa-dri             7.1.0-1                 
ii  xlibmesa-gl              7.1.0-1                 
ii  xlibmesa-glu             7.1.0-1                 

Thanks for the suggestion.  Any other ideas?
