Make sure if current driver works with Lunar - test it on any supported 
Radeon. According to release notes current fglrx 11.8 supports up to XOrg 
7.6 Lunar uses 7.7 so current fglrx may not work at all. Devs here seems 
to use Intel/Nvidia so these these drivers/modules are updated. fglrx was 
left unmaintained when I dropped my Radeon 9000 (had X1Kxxx for some time 
later) years ago and AMD as company lags behind Intel/Nvidia when it comes 
to support current X.
You will have tough life with AMD binary driver on Lunar. We are following 
fast X releases and do not wait for fglrx.

I do not understand why you want fglrx to be moved to zdeprecated if it is 
still updated by AMD monthly and you tell us that you are working on up to 
date version?

have a nice day,
