    For now I managed to install the atistream and cpyrit-stream packages with a trick. Manually install the driver from the official ATI site. Then download the needed packages.
    Code:
    apt-get -d install backtrack-ati
    This will download the packages in apt cache. So you have to install the packages ignoring dependency with ati-driver (the broken package).
    Code:
    dpkg --ignore-depends=ati-driver -i /var/cache/apt/archives/atistream_1.4.0-bt2_i386.deb
    dpkg --ignore-depends=ati-driver -i /var/cache/apt/archives/cpyrit-stream_0.2.2-bt2_i386.deb
    This of course break dependency, so you can't do apt-get upgrade anymore; but that's another story.

    This seems to work. I run Xorg with flgrx driver and dual head configuration, and have atistream and cpyrit-stream installed. I say "seems" because pyrit doesn't detect the GPU (I have a HD4570).

    The following cores seem available...

    #2: 'CPU-Core (SSE2)'
    I missed some additional important configuration step for pyrit, or the trick simply doesn't work?
