[pkg-nvidia-devel] Bug#558434: libvdpau1 should not depend on the libvdpau-driver metapackage

Package: libvdpau
Version: 0.3-1
Severity: normal

Currently, libvdpau1 depends on libvdpau-driver which in turn only depends upon an NVIDIA closed source library.

This means that any package that depends on libvdpau1 to be able to optionally provide support for VDPAU will
depend on the NVIDIA library. The dependency should be dropped, and individual packages that will "require"
VDPAU support should depend upon the driver package.
