Description

USN-416-1 fixed various vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel. Unfortunately that update caused the 'nvidia-glx-config' script to not work any more. The new version fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
