I'm trying to install the libgdal1 package on Ubuntu 12.04, but the apt is returing this error:

dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/libgdal1_1.9.1-2~precise4_amd64.deb (--unpack):

libgdal 1.9.1-1 trying to overwrite '/usr/lib/libgdal.so.1.16.1', which is also in package libgdal 1.9.1-1

I believe libgdal 1.9.1-1 is installed from OpenGeo Suite. How can I fix this problem?

QGIS and osm2pgl require the libgdal1 package.

    sudo apt-get remove --purge libgdal && apt-get clean?

I ended not being able to have OpenGeo suite installed.

There was a conflict with the libdal packages between OpenGeo suite, and the libgdal packages of postGIS and QGIS.
