My Radeon 5450 will not be accelerated with the open source radeon driver, even when I installed experimental mesa, libdrm, and the radeon driver from testing.

According to this thread, http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-software-2/radeon-hd5450-and-kde-3d-hw-rendering-866420/, those where what I needed. After struggling with apt-get and synaptic and breaking my update manager, I STILL have no hardware acceleration. HELP!
