Package: nvidia-libvdpau1-driver
Version: 190.42-3
Severity: serious
Tags: patch

During upgrade nvidia-graphics-drivers from 190.42-2 to 190.42-3 I noticed
an error:

Unpacking nvidia-libvdpau1-driver (from .../nvidia-libvdpau1-driver_190.42-3_amd64.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/nvidia-libvdpau1-driver_190.42-3_amd64.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite '/usr/lib/libvdpau_nvidia.so.190.42', which is also in package nvidia-libvdpau1 0:190.42-2
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)

I suppose following patch shall fix the problem:
