proceeding with fglrx
<jcristau> anbe: i don't think we'll want to add a new package
<jcristau> one fglrx is enough
<jcristau> (arguably one fglrx is one too many)
<anbe> jcristau, when trying to get at least one working fglrx into
wheezy (and provide fglrx-legacy-driver in wheezy-backports), can we get
a package rename (libxvbaw1 -> libfglrx-amdxvba1) done for wheezy?
(libxvbaw1 is not in squeeze, only bpo, and would conflict with -legacy)
this would simplify things to do for wheezy+1
<jcristau> anbe: i assume it has no reverse deps
<jcristau> anbe: in which case i don't care
<anbe> jcristau, may I post your answers here in a reply to my original
