In setups with several GLX providers (e.g. the free MESA implementation and
proprietary graphics hardware vendor implementations) this metapackage
allows one to switch to the non-free NVIDIA driver and libraries.
Use 'update-alternatives --config glx' to select an implementation.
This package does not depend on the corresponding NVIDIA libraries.
In order to install the NVIDIA driver and libraries, install the
nvidia-driver package instead.
