Package: nvidia-graphics-drivers
Version: 190.42-1
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

The source package wastes several megabytes of bandwith and disk space
by using the -pkg2.run file for the 64-bit driver, which includes
prebuilt modules that are not used at all.  It should use the -pkg0.run
file like it is done for the i386 version.  It would be nice if you
could fix this when packaging the next upstream release.  Here is patch
that should be sufficient:
