Installation failed: file /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2 from install of fglrx-glc22-4.


I've just installed Linux Mandrake 9.2 and I'm trying to get mr ATI Radeon 9800Pro to install, I downloaded the driver from ATI and ran it, but I get this error.. "Installation failed:
file /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2 from install of fglrx-glc22-4.3.0-3.7.0 conflicts with file from package libxfree86-4.3-23mdk ", can anyone tell me what that means and how I would go about repairing it?

Thanks..

Basically, the ATI driver wants to replace the "default" openGL driver from XFree86. This is alright, most custom video drivers do this. Why it didn't automatically do this for you is a mystery, although perhaps something's changed in the new Mandrake release, and ATI hasn't adjusted their drivers yet.

That said, there's nothing broken. The message is simply a warning that a conflict exists. My preference would be to go to ATI's site and see if they have a forum or whatever, then look for a similar there, or ask a question through their contact/support page.

Unfortunately, I've only used NVidia drivers (not necessarily better, just what I have on hand usually), so I can't help you get around this with too much certainty. Even so, I hope this helps you narrow down the list of solutions.

I've had this on RH9, and if I use "rpm -ivh --force <package_name>" then it installs no problem, and things work. (btw, the Radeon9800pro works very well with linux, I'm lovin' mine )

Hmm, I ran "rpm -ivh --force <package_name>" but I ended up with a list of errors...

I've just realised, I didn't install the source, is this what this error is all about???

Does anyone know how i can easily install the source code?

the kernel sources are on the install cds. go into control center, and i believe it's software environment(working from memory) from there choose source package, it will ask you for the cd. pop it in and let er rip.
good.

Thanks Peacedog

I had a look in the Control Centre and I see no option for Software Enviroment, I search every option thoroughly and didn't see anywhere that wold allow me to install stuff from a CD, I'll keep looking.

take a look at configuration > packaging or software management. it won't say install from cd. it'll list the packages installed or not installed, depends on how you sort it. sort to not installed, or available packages, look for source, select it. the package manager, should then ask for a cd. hope that sheds a little more light for ya.
good luck.

Urmm, still no 3D acceleration and to amke matters worse I now can't boot to the GUI, I get a "no screens" error!

Judging by the error I'd assume that I need to replace /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 with the original version, but when I try to run PICO to edit the file I get an error telling me that it can't be found. Do I have to be in any particular folder to run PICO?

no

pico /etc/X11/XF86Config-4

should work, but, you do have to do this as root.
