This is the worst thing about the official nivida installer, and why I will 
never use it.

The livna rpms work around this and install the nvidia opengl libs in such a 
way that it doesn't conflict with the default ones, but exist side by side. 

At a later date you can just remove the rpm and end up back where you start, 
with a work nv driver.
