Package: nvidia-glx-legacy-71xx
Version: 71.86.01-1
Followup-For: Bug #474060

Seconded.  Starting form a system with working GLX, I upgraded and did
all the right(?) stuff as described here:

...the result is that 'nvidia-glx-legacy-71xx' won't install:

    % apt-get install nvidia-glx-legacy-71xx
    { ... }
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
      nvidia-glx-legacy-71xx: Depends: nvidia-glx but it is not going to be installed
    E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

    % apt-get -f install
    { ... }
    The following packages will be REMOVED:
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    After this operation, 9916kB disk space will be freed.
    Do you want to continue [Y/n]? n

The 'X' start message may help web searchers find this bug:

    Error: API mismatch: the NVIDIA kernel module has version 71.86.04,
    but this NVIDIA driver component has version 71.86.01.  Please make
    sure that the kernel module and all NVIDIA driver components
    have the same version.
