Yes it's libGL.so.1 and the apt-get install allows both to be installed
simultaneously because the files are in different directories. So, how
does Apt/Rpm determine that nvidia is higher ranked than the xorg when
delivering the libGL.so.1? Alphabetically based on the package name?
I've not tried, since this is a headless box, but I cannot imagine the
Nvidia supplied libGL.so.1 operating correctly on other graphics cards
unless the lib provides a compat API that works in general in addition
to its own accelerated functions. So, should this really "Provides:
libGL.so.1" ? Because it would seem that this lib is really a
specialized libGL built for Nvidia cards.
