Package: nvidia-glx-legacy-173xx
Version: 173.14.25-2
Severity: serious

It seems nvidia-glx-legacy-173xx has an undeclared conflict with 
fglrx-driver. I should note I already experienced fglrx installation 
failures that seemed to be caused by cruft from old buggy packages. I 
only tested this on one system, which had relatively old versions of 
fglrx installed.
