Hi all,

The nvidia-modprobe binary was provided in the "nvidia" / "nvidia-lts" 
packages, but this doesn't work well because the two packages should not be 
prevented from installing together.

To fix this, I've pulled the two packages from [testing], and will upload a 
new nvidia-utils package containing the binary to [testing]. FS#39203 and 
FS#39636 will be closed if the new package fixed everything. (A setuid binary 
is not good, but no trivial workaround was found)

If you still have one of the packages installed, please revert them to the 
corresponding version in [extra]. If you failed to do so, a file conflict 
error is expected after the new nvidia-utils get pushed.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Felix Yan
