Installing the ATI drivers on a Debian system


1. I found and downloaded the driver from the ATI site
2. I did the sudo alien -d fglrx_4_3_0-8.8.25-1.i386.rpm
3. I tried: sudo dpkg -i fglrx-4-3-0_8.8.25-2_i386.deb

But get (sorry, there's some danish in there):

Code:
Vælger tidligere fravalgt pakke fglrx-4-3-0.
(Læser database... 245586 filer og mapper aktuelt installeret.)
Udpakker fglrx-4-3-0 (fra fglrx-4-3-0_8.8.25-2_i386.deb)...
dpkg: fejl under behandling af fglrx-4-3-0_8.8.25-2_i386.deb (--install):
 forsøger at overskrive '/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2', som også er i pakken xlibmesa-gl
dpkg-deb: underproces paste dræbt af signal (Røret blev brudt)
Der opstod fejl under behandlingen:
 fglrx-4-3-0_8.8.25-2_i386.deb
Exit 1
Ok - so I try:
sudo apt-get install fglrx-4-3-0

but get:
Code:
Indlæser pakkelisterne... Færdig
Opbygger afhængighedstræ... Færdig
Pakken fglrx-4-3-0 har ingen tilgængelig version, men der refereres til den i en
anden pakke. Det kan betyde at denne pakke blevet overflødiggjort eller
kun kan hentes fra andre kilder
E: Pakken fglrx-4-3-0 har ingen installationskandidat
Exit 100
So I guess it does not exist more :-(

Any ideas ?
