And brokes other things :(

(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized GPU GART.
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Failed to determine power source of the system : Unable
(WW) NVIDIA(0):     find AC state file under /proc/acpi/ac_adapter/
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Error: Unable to find DOS (Enable/Disable output
(WW) NVIDIA(0):     file path under /proc/acpi/video. NVIDIA X driver
will not
(WW) NVIDIA(0):     be able to respond to  display change hotkey events.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "nvidia-auto-select"
(II) Loading extension NV-GLX
(II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA 3D Acceleration Architecture Initialized
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Need libwfb but wfbScreenInit not found

Fatal server error:
AddScreen/ScreenInit failed for driver 0

In 169.12-2 someone has removed libnvidia-wfb.so and Xorg don't run.

Using now 173.08 beta driver (debian packages), which give lower FPS
than 169, but, works, :(
