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.
