Package: libgl1-nvidia-legacy-340xx-glx
Version: 340.96-3
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks the whole system

First I deinstalled all of nvidia

apt-get --purge remove *nvidia*

apt-get install nvidia-detect

Check for needed legacy-driver

apt-get install nvidia-legacy-340xx-driver

libgl1-nvidia-legacy-340xx-glx:amd64 (340.96-3) wird eingerichtet ...
dpkg: Fehler beim Bearbeiten des Paketes libgl1-nvidia-legacy-340xx-glx:amd64
 Unterprozess installiertes post-installation-Skript gab den Fehlerwert 137
libgl1-nvidia-legacy-340xx-glx:i386 (340.96-3) wird eingerichtet ...

And after this line the installation process hangs.
I have to kill the processes from another console.
