Package: nvidia-glx
Version: 169.07-2
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

When I attempt to install this package with apt it prompts me to uninstall xorg and a 
number of other related packages. If I try to install with dpkg I am told that there is a 
conflict with libgl1-mesa-swx11.

dpkg: regarding nvidia-glx_169.07-2_amd64.deb containing nvidia-glx:

  nvidia-glx (version 169.07-2) is to be installed.
