Question Rerunning deletes my installed


Why is it everytime I run NVIDIA driver script to compile the driver to upgrade/redo (xorg changes or whatever) for my old Debian (Kernel v2.6.32-5-686 #1 SMP Fri Dec 10 16:12:40 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux) box, it deletes my installed I have to uninstall and reinstall libvdpau1 package through apt-get command. It's quite annoying when I want to use mplayer and gmplayer because of this error:

$ mplayer
mplayer: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory for my /var/log/nvidia-installer.log. It shows:
$ cat nvidia-installer.log |grep libvdpau
-> Unable to restore symbolic link /usr/lib/ ->
-> Unable to restore symbolic link /usr/lib/vdpau/ -> (File exists).

Thank you in advance.
