Well, I got it from experimental. Didn't realize that you were asking
for unstable explicitly. So try the version from experimental and see if
it is working.

Nothing in unstable depends on glx-alternatives (which is now at 0.1.2
in unstable and hopefully working) so nothing will be broken by having
this in unstable first. Installing the "old" (275.09.07-1) unstable
drivers together with glx-alternatives won't work due to proper Breaks:.

There will be no upload to unstable until 275.09.07-1 migrates to
testing - this fixes a lot of bugs and I want it in testing before we
upload the multiarch support into unstable.
