Question Rerunning NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.28-pkg1.run deletes my installed libvdpau.so.1?

Hello.

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 libvdpau.so.1? 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: libvdpau.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

http://pastebin.ca/2024398 for my /var/log/nvidia-installer.log. It shows:
$ cat nvidia-installer.log |grep libvdpau
-> Unable to restore symbolic link /usr/lib/libvdpau.so.1 -> libvdpau.so.1.0.0
-> Unable to restore symbolic link /usr/lib/vdpau/libvdpau_trace.so.1 ->
libvdpau_trace.so.1.0.0 (File exists).

Thank you in advance.

Thanks ant. This does sound like a bug: the code to delete conflicting libvdpau files was added to recent versions of the installer where the package replaces it with its own. That shouldn't have been backported to the legacy driver series, since it doesn't install one. I filed a bug.

Cool and thanks! I noticed it doesn't have on the newer driver for GeForce 8800 GT.

FYI, I won't be able to test/verify this issue since I don't have access to that PC with the problem.
