[Redhat9.0] RPM-driver installation problems...failed dependencies


Hi!
I've got some difficulties with installing the new ATI-graphics card driver. When I try to install the new rpm-package, I get the following error message:

[user@computer directory]# rpm -Uh fglrx-4.3.0-3.9.0.i386.rpm
Fehler: Failed dependencies:
fglrx-glc22 conflicts with fglrx-4.3.0-3.9.0

I still get this message after adding --force to the command. Okay, so far...just uninstall the old driver I thought. And so I tried:

[user@computer directory]# rpm -e fglrx-glc22
Fehler: Failed dependencies:
libGL.so.1 is needed by (installed) XFree86-libs-4.3.0-2
libGL.so.1 is needed by (installed) qt-3.1.1-6
libGL.so.1 is needed by (installed) chromium-0.9.12-21
libGL.so.1 is needed by (installed) tuxracer-0.61-19
libGL.so.1 is needed by (installed) xawtv-3.81-6
libGL.so.1 is needed by (installed) XFree86-tools-4.3.0-2
libGL.so.1 is needed by (installed) xscreensaver-4.07-2
libGL.so.1 is needed by (installed) xmms-1.2.7-21.p
libGL.so.1 is needed by (installed) kdeartwork-3.1-3
libGL.so.1 is needed by (installed) kdegraphics-3.1-4

Is there any way to uninstall the old driver? Or how can I get my RedHat 9.0 to install the new driver, even if the old one still exists?

Thanks a lot,
Patric.

"Is there any way to uninstall the old driver? Or how can I get my RedHat 9.0 to install the new driver, even if the old one still exists?"

I would uninstall the old driver with:
rpm --nodeps -e fglrx

Then install the new driver with:
rpm -i fglrx-4.3.0-3.9.0.i386.rpm

If you uninstall the old fglrx while running on top of X there is a good chance that X will collapse under you. Therefore I suggest that you log into root in failsafe mode to do the uninstall/install.

Yeahhh...thank you.

It worked.

I did everything without having started the X Server.
