when trying to install the ati-driver package I get the following error:
Being unable to install this then causes broken dependancies for things like atistream, backtrack-ati, and cpyrit-steam. This is the case even if I try to manually install the drivers using the latest version from ATI.
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/ati-driver_9.5-bt2_i386.deb (--unpack): trying to overwrite '/usr/lib/libGL.so', which is also in package libgl1-mesa-dev
Could anyone please help me understand the error im getting and let me know what I can do to fix it?
For reference, here is a full copy of the info I get while trying to install the package
