Hi Peter,

Unfortunately I cannot reproduce this in a clean sid amd64 chroot with

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


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

After the apt-get remove, are you sure there was no leftover? Have you
checked with dpkg -l? What version of the driver did you have installed

Also, when posting the output of commands, could you please prefix them
with: LC_ALL=C this way the output is in English and it's easier for
non-German speaker to understand :-)

Kind regards,
Luca Boccassi
