The core open-source graphics driver is bundled by default as part of the kernel (radeon). You shouldn't need to separately install it.

The X display driver xserver-xorg-video-radeon and userspace DRM driver libdrm-radeon should normally be auto-installed, but may be manually installed via apt-get if needed.

you mean xserver-xorg-video-radeon or libdrm-radeon1 ? – user827992 Jul 14 '12 at 16:33
