[pkg-nvidia-devel] Bug#483080: nvidia-glx: Need libwfb but wfbScreenInit not found

Package: nvidia-glx
Version: 169.12-2
Severity: important

After today's upgrade of nvidia-kernel-source and nvidia-glx the X
server refused to start with the message "Need libwfb but
wfbScreenInit not found" in the logs.  The problem is that:

  diverted by nvidia-glx to: /usr/lib/nvidia/libwfb.so.xserver-xorg-core

Copying /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libwfb.so to
/usr/lib/nvidia/libwfb.so.xserver-xorg-core makes the server start again.
