Package: nvidia-glx-legacy-173xx
Severity: normal

hello friends,

first, thank a lot for providing all the great service. a problem 
is anoying me now, but usually everything work great :) .

this package should replace nvidia-glx, but is uninstallable due to 
unstatisfied dependencies.
however, the entire xorg upgrade is depending on removing nvidia-glx.
hence, i can't upgrade my system (testing/unstable/experimental) for 
around a week.
i understand that building the kernel module from source might solve 
the problem, and i'll do it if you recommend it as the only way.
