Following the "ATI Radeon Linux How-To", I managed to get the 3D
acceleration with the previous xserver version (4.3.0.dfsg.1-6) but
overwriting the MESA libGL library with the ATI one, through a "dpkg
--force-overwrite -i fglrx.deb". Everything worked well but I had a
lot of troubles upgrading the xserver due to the libGL library. So I
decided to make use of "dpkg-divert" as suggested on this web page

dpkg-divert --package fglrx --add /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2
dpkg -i fglrx_4.3.0-4.12_i386.deb

Where does /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1 point now? On my system, it keeps getting set to the diverted library.
ll /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL* gives:
-rw-r--r--    1 root root 666K 2004-09-06 13:16 libGL.a
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root root    12 2004-09-18  17:41 libGL.so -> libGL.so.1.2*

-rw-r--r--    1 root root 489K 2004-09-06 13:16 libGLU.so.1.3
-rw-r--r--    1 root root  31K 2004-09-06  13:16 libGLw.a

How can I recognize a diverted library? After a "find / -name 'libGL*'" I can only see these libraries.
