Package:  nvidia-glx-legacy-71xx

Severity: serious

dependencies are correct and complete, so please review it.

documents the LSB header format.  Some debian notes are available from
<URL: http://wiki.debian.org/LSBInitScripts/DependencyBasedBoot >.

The severity of this issue is serious, because with the new parallel
execution of init.d scripts, this init.d script might start after the
display manager is started, which I believe will make this package
