Hi, I'd just like to give the list a heads up that the new ATI fglrx
drivers actually work with amd64. They're only available (as usual) in
rpm's but I hacked together Flavio's debian packages and with a bit of
manual copying around it works.
Can you tell me how did you do it?
I tried just alien-ing the rpm but fails because it tries to overwrite
`/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2', owned by xlibmesa-gl package.
I added the following diversion manually:
diversion of /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2 to
/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2.xlibmesa by fglrx
$ man dpkg-divert
Then you don't have to worry about --force-overwrite or other options,
it will just work and leave the original file intact (renamed).
