How to install drivers (ATI RADEON 9250)

my videocard is Ati Radeon 9250(9200 series) 128bit 128MB RAM
Mandrakelinux 10.1 Official

When I download the drivers from and try to install them - the following error message appears:
install of fglrx_6_8_0-8.8.25-1 conflicts with file from package libxorg-x11-6.7.0-3mdk

Please, advise me what to do...

Did you install the ATI rpm with the "--force" option, i.e., "rpm -Uh --force <ati_package_name>.rpm" ?

This will force the installer to overwrite any existing files including the conflicting libGL, which should allow the ATI driver to install properly.

Got a 9250 as well with 10.1 CE.
So far I did not try to install the ATI because it looked quite difficult
even patches seemed to be needed in some cases.

Anyhow, I use fglrx that is shipped with 10.1 and during
the install I selected 9200, it all works OK

Score there:

I am a newbee, so take this with a pinch of salt:

>install of fglrx_6_8_0-8.8.25-1 conflicts with file from package libxorg-x11-6.7.0-3mdk

does not look too good
you trying to put driver for 6.8 with xorg 6.7
When I googled looking at the radeon 9200 it seemed difficult
to mix and match versions (for a newbee anyhow)

If you manage please let us know. I am interested.
