    Problems installing ATI drivers on Progeny Debian 2


    I just installed Progeny Debian, and under the installation, it probed my graphics card to be Ati Radeon 9800, which is correct..

    But when trying to install the ati drivers that I downloaded, I get this error:

    dpkg-divert: `diversion of /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2 to /usr/share/fglrx/diversions/libGL.so.1.2 by fglrx-4.3.0-driver' clashes with `diversion of /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2 to /usr/X11R6/lib/nvidia/libGL.so.1.2.xlibmesa by nvidia-glx'
    dpkg: error processing fglrx-4.3.0-driver_3.14.6-1_i386.deb (--install):
    subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit status 2

    nvidia? I havent chosen nvidia, and I do not have anything nvidia in my pc...
    How do I fix this?

    Please help!

    Are the nvidia driver installed?
    if so first un-install them (probly only this)

    otherwise, try resetting the "default" debian driver for vga video card.
    also, just out of curiosity, look in the /etc/modprobe.preload look if one of the line specify EXACTLY THIS LINE "nvidia" if so, remove it and the lib wont be laoded... install the driver from CLI after that
