X.org 7.1 to 7.4 in ubuntu 9.04

I was wondering how to accomplish this. Ati drivers require this version of xorg.

Would someone know a suitable repository?
Is there deb packages available?

Would compiling from source be the only option?

[atiddxSetup] X version mismatch - detected X.org, required X.org 7.4.-1.906
(II) UnloadModule: "fglrx"
(II) Unloading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//fglrx_drv.so
(EE) Failed to load module "fglrx" (module requirement mismatch, 0)
(EE) No drivers available.

Current version in Ubuntu 9.04 is:

xserver-xorg            1:7.4~5ubuntu18

So, it looks like you should have it.
Try running

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Or check on Ubuntu

Thanks for a really snappy reply fmarzocca!

I have tried that. And did try again with the following result:

The following packages will be upgraded:
  fglrx-amdcccle fglrx-kernel-source xorg-driver-fglrx
3 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

sources.list is as follows:

I check man xorg | grep xorg-server and get the following :xorg-server 1.6.0 .

I wonder what to do now?

After upgrading xorg, restart your system. Then look if any new hardware driver is in the System->Administration->Hardware Driver list, or follow the page I linked you for ATI drivers.

forgot to mention that the upgrade brakes down the drivers so that the won't recognize the hardware (ati firegl) anymore (new version+old hardware). If the upgrade works, it would be easy to configure the right drivers.
