Hi Sasha,

You seem pretty sure you  need the latest driver.  I will just put this
information up for similar searches.

I experienced very similar conditions you had (everything okay until trying
to use a driver with 3D support), but I actually had to install and older
version / backport / whatever it's called (legacy package?).


good luck,
