> 	I expected that purging the packape would thuroughly remove all traces of the package and revert to the previous functioning xorg configuration.
> 	I recommend that flgrx be removed from /etc/initramfs-tools/modules at a minimum on purge along with a suggestion to delete other files.
> 	This may apply to flgrx-source as well.
