Last NVidia update in the Debian unstable branche (375.82) broke the symlinks of the openGL libs.

LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo|grep

libGL: screen 0 does not appear to be DRI2 capable
libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/tls/swrast_dri.so

sudo ldconfig -p | grep -i gl.so

    libwayland-egl.so.1 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libwayland-egl.so.1
libcogl.so.20 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcogl.so.20
libGL.so.1 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/local/lib/libGL.so.1

I have no experience with symlinks and I can't find this problem online solved without using docker or installing the bin version. The latter would break my CUDA/Tensorflow setup due to libs not being compatible with the .bin version.
