    libxorg-x11-devel unpacking error


    when i download the libxorg-x11-develop file i get an upacking error. I have removed the file and redownloaded it but get the same error.


    # urpmi libxorg-x11-devel

    http://rpm.nyvalls.se/10.1/RPMS/./kd....thac.i586.rpm
    installing /var/cache/urpmi/rpms/libxorg-x11-devel-6.8.2-6.mdk10.1.thac.i586.rpm
    Preparing... ##################################################
    1:libxorg-x11-devel ##################################################
    error: unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/include/GL: cpio: rename failed - Is a directory

    I think this could be reason why my opengl may not be working correctly even though says installed.

    Loading required GL library /usr/lib/libGL.so.1
    display: :0.0 screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: RADEON 9500 Pro Generic
    OpenGL version string: 1.3.5010 (X4.3.0-8.12.10)

    thanks in advance

    Downlload these better xorg packages from these ftp sites:
    ftp://ftp.lip6.fr/pub/linux/distribu...er/media/main/
    ftp://ftp.sunsite.org.uk/package/man...er/media/main/
    Be carefull:
    1. you have first to save this files:
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2
    2. do install out of (X) kde/gnome:
    Ctrl Alt Backspace
    init 3
