Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

Lucid Lynx Beta(#?)

Attempting to install fglrx with ATI Mobility Radeon x1400. It was attempting to replace "/etc/ati/signature", but no such file directly existed (I don't believe), but the files "/etc/ati/signature.dpkg-bak" & "-new" were in the folder at the time of the crash.

$ apt-cache policy fglrx
