[pkg-nvidia-devel] Bug#534536: nvidia-libvdpau: Shared library doesn't contain soversion in name

Package: nvidia-libvdpau
Version: 185.18.14-1
Severity: serious
Justification: Policy 8.1

The package name for the libvdpau shared library doesn't contain the soversion
in it's name. This will break packages linking to the shared libraries upon a
soversion increment.

Seeing that libvdpau.so.1 is the symlink to the actual shared library, the
package should be renamed to nvidia-libvdpau1.
