Hi Tim,
this is as example of using dpkg-divert:
 dpkg-divert --package dpkg --add --local  --rename --divert
 /usr/bin/dpkg.real /usr/bin/dpkg
 In this case, I want to move /usr/bin/dpkg to /usr/bin/dpkg.real
 and to have any future /usr/bin/dpkg to be written to
 This may be used for /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2. But I dont know if it
 should be set for fglfx or xlibmesa-gl.

counter.li.org #238656 -- goto counter.li.org and be counted!
