** Description changed:
The nvidia-cuda-toolkit package needs to depend on a minimum version of the CUDA library included in nvidia-graphics-drivers.
The current Debian version of nvidia-cuda-toolkit (5.0.35-4) does this on Debian systems by checking the version of libcuda1 and on Ubuntu systems by checking the version of nvidia-current, nvidia-curent-updates, nvidia-experimental-304 or nvidia-experimental-310.
- It would greatly simplify maintenance of nvidia-cuda-toolkit if nvidia-
- graphics-drivers provided a versioned 'libcuda1' transitional package as
- well an 'nvidia-libopencl1' virtual package.
+ It would greatly simplify maintenance of packages building against
+ libcuda.so.1 and libOpenCL.so.1 if the nvidia-graphics drivers could
+ provide virtual packages that reflect the API level, for example,
+ libcuda-5.0-1 and libopencl-1.2-1.
+ Packages could then build-depend on these virtual packages and use
+ shlibs.local to override the dependencies on libcuda.so.1 and
+ libOpenCL.so.1 with libcuda-5.0-1 and libopencl-1.2-1 respectively,
+ allowing packages to be installed with any compatible version of the
+ nvidia-graphics-drivers, not only the version they were built against.
