[Grml] ATI drivers vs. Mesa

I tried to get the  fglrx-kernel-2.6.16-grml drivers for ATI, but it 
seems like that creates problems with the install Mesa drivers, ie. I 
get the following error:

Unpacking replacement fglrx-driver ...
dpkg: error processing 
/var/cache/apt/archives/fglrx-driver_8.25.18-1_i386.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite `/usr/lib/libGL.so.1.2', which is also in package 
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)

Could I remove the Mesa libs? Removing the Mesa package doesn't work, 
because that would remove half my system (even amarok depends on it).

What about removing the libGL.so.1.2 file, so that the fglrx can install 
its version; if the driver causes trouble, would this make my system 

Thanks for any tips,
