[pkg-nvidia-devel] Bug#463403: nvidia-kernel: Non-dependency on kernel may cause configuration before kernel, which fails

Package: nvidia-kernel-source
Version: 190.42-1
Severity: normal

This bug is pending for nearly 2 years but still haven't been corrected
with the latest versions while it should be worthwhile having a
dependency instead of a recommendation on the linux-image package.

Here is a patch attached.

Thanks a lot for your work.
