I have an ATI/AMD graphics card in my computer. However, every time I try to install the post-release updates, it always fails and deactivates the graphics driver.

I've pasted the last few messages following the ldconfig deferred processing now taking place message from the installation log from /var/log/jockey.log below; if you're interested, I have pasted the full output here.

What's going on? Is ldconfig corrupted, or has the driver package just not been properly installed, despite reporting to the "Additional Drivers" panel that it is?
