Package: nvidia-driver
Severity: serious

Justification: Policy 1.1

After installing nvidia-driver on a fresh installed debian (or on it's 
distributions too), the driver could not be loaded causes to boot in 
low-graphics mode.
The main problem is here, that the package overwrites the xserver-xorg-nouveau 
driver and it's hard to be restored, even purging nvidia-driver and 
reinstalling/reconfiguring xserver-xorg-nouveau. For me, a complete new Debian 
installation was the solution.
The package was working earlyer on Linux Mint Sarah, but now breaks both system.
