Bug Description

It says that I have modified this file and does not delete the file or overwrite the /etc/drirc file when instructed to do so during the install of this package. The package installation then fails and I am now seeing the driver say that I am running gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe. I checked the file the installer claimed I modified and it has no modifications from me in the file whatsoever. I checked the original file itself in the package and it is a match for what is installed. Not sure what is going but but this is pretty serious if I cannot manage to get anything but llvmpipe to work with a supported card.
