Package: nvidia-glx-legacy-96xx
Version: 96.43.18-2
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

nvidia-glx-legacy-96xx provides xserver-xorg-video-6, 
but the new xserver-xorg-core conflicts with this.

A new version (96.43.19) is available from nvidia's site and works with
xorg version 1.9.

Please could you update the package.


P.S. Presumably this affects the other nvidia driver packages too.
