    Default 3870 gutsy amd64 probs

    After a hiatus from the forums which has culminated in the click o' death on my IBM Deskstar (due to Microsoft Patch Tuesday + Vista....) I'm back to my gusty amd 64 install (while cringing that I have to return to vista soon...)

    Grabbed latest fglrx and installed - installs fine but:

    fglrxinfo

    OpenGL version string 1.4 (2.1 Mesa 7.0.1)

    Revert to the old way of installing (ie sh ati.. --builpkg Ubuntu/7.10

    and installing xorg-driver-fglrx resulys in:

    Failed to install pkg:

    dpkg: error processing xorg-driver-fglrx

    trying to overwrite /usr/lib32/libGL.so.1, which is also in package ia32-libs

    any idea why???

    Put it in /usr/src - then it does not dl it again.

    Had the same problem. I forced dpkg to install nonetheless, which of course is more than just ugly. No ill consequences till now and removing the forced package and reinstalling ia32-libs should undo the damage - but well, it's... ewwwwww.

    Well looks like a packageing error, added a force option now. Reload script.
