wheee dependencies

i keep getting this message when i try and do a whole update. i just installed fedora last night. this is with a amd64, and a radeon 9800pro.

keep getting this error

Test install failed because of package conflicts:
file /usr/X11R6/lib64/ from install of xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL-6.8.1-12.FC3.21 conflicts with
file from package fglrx64_6_8_0-8.10.19-1
file /usr/X11R6/lib/ from install of xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL-6.8.1-12.FC3.21 conflicts with file
from package fglrx64_6_8_0-8.10.19-1

i just want to get the newest Xorg in there.. and try and figure out why my card (apparently) isn't even being used. when i do glxgears i only get like 350fps. and yes i set in BIOS agp, not pci. :T

help please -_-

Well, you got conflicting packages which probably depend on the current versions you already have installed.

Either uninstall the fglrx package, install the latest Xorg packages or try doing a --nodeps on it, which could be a risk in breaking it more.
