Package: libgl1-nvidia-glx
Version: 340.24-2
Severity: serious
Justification: Policy 7.6.1

When both :amd64 and :i386 packages installing (as nvidia-driver suggests),
dpkg reports:

Preparing to unpack .../libgl1-nvidia-glx_340.24-2_i386.deb ...
Unpacking libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386 (340.24-2) ...
dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/libgl1-nvidia-
glx_340.24-2_i386.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite shared '/usr/share/doc/libgl1-nvidia-
glx/changelog.Debian.gz', which is different from other instances of package

Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Failed to perform requested operation on package.  Trying to recover:
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of libgl1-nvidia-glx-i386:
 libgl1-nvidia-glx-i386 depends on libgl1-nvidia-glx; however:
  Package libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386 is not installed.
