I am trying to install the last available legacy fglrx drivers for my hd 42xx graphics card. I have generated Debian packages by using the well known procedure:

./amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13.1-legacy-linux-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/precise

When I am trying to install the first package which is fglrx_8.970-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb I get a strange error, this is the output of dpkg:

(Reading database ... 174786 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking fglrx (from fglrx_8.970-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing fglrx_8.970-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb (--install):
 unable to open '/usr/lib/fglrx/libXvBAW.so.1.0.dpkg-new': No such file or directory
Processing triggers for ureadahead ...
Errors were encountered while processing:

I can not get rid of this error. The same happens when I do try to install the fglrx driver by using apt-get or synaptic.
