Package: nvidia-glx
Version: 180.29-1
Severity: normal


Would be nice to have a libvdpau1 and libvdpau-dev packages.

The main problem, is if you want to link dynamically against libvdpau, you
need to build-depends on nvidia-glx-dev but this package depends on
nvidia-glx (and now the main problem) who dpends on nvidia-kernel-180.29,
who doesn't exist in Debian, only legacy kernel module are packaged.
