Today I decided to give Linux the benefit of the doubt and make a real effort to switch over from windows. I've installed Fedora Core 3 and everything seems to be working ok, despite a few initial peculiarities (default permissions on user account didn't allow me to read my cd drive
). However, whether or not I stay with Linux really depends on whether or not I can get the majority of my games working on it. I'm convinced this can be done, but I've fallen at the first hurdle - the linux drivers I downloaded from ATi's website report the following:
file /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2 from install of fglrx_6_8_0-8.10.19-1 conflicts with file from package xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL-6.8.1-12
Does this mean I have to revert to an older version of x.org? If so how would I go about doing this? Is there anything else I need to install or settings I need to change?
The only other problem I had that I hoped someone could shed some light on was up2date hanging at "Testing Package Set..". Is there another way to find and install updates?
