Debian Unstable(sid) and NVIDIA drivers

Hi !
I found an error in NVidia drivers (9755), when you install Nvidia driver using Nvidia script, it search for conflicting files. But, in Debian Unstable, we found a Xorg 7.2, and the X11R6 path isn't the same of 7.0,

from (7.0) /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/
to (7.2) /usr/lib/xorg/modules/

If when you start Xorg, you found this errors :

(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) No drivers available

Fatal server error: no screens found

You need re-link nvidia driver and libglx
Nvidia Installer install its files in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/ we need link them in /usr/lib/xorg/modules/

This script permit you to re-link correctly and, in the good folders.

cd /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/


mv nvidia_drv.o nvidia_drv.o.old

ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/

ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.o


ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/

cd ../extensions/


ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/

You can download it there :

(comming soon)
