Package: nvidia-settings
Version: 173.14.09-1
Severity: normal
Tags: patch


just found that the static libxnvctrl library is built without -fPIC. Can you 
add this flag, so that it's possible to build the nvidia plugin for sensors-
applet on amd64?
Attached is a quick and dirty patch against debian/rules to do so.
