[pkg-nvidia-devel] Bug#489389: nvidia-glx: xserver does not start, complains about missing libwfb.so

Package: nvidia-glx
Version: 173.14.09-2
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable


since the last nvidia update my xserver doesn't start anymore:

(II) Loading sub module "wfb"
(II) LoadModule: "wfb"
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module wfb
(II) UnloadModule: "wfb"
(EE) Failed to load module "wfb" (module does not exist, 0)

(EE) NVIDIA(0): Need libwfb but wfbScreenInit not found

Also there's no libwfb.so on my system. Maybe because of my slightly
older xserver-xorg-core version 1.3.0?
