nvidia should *not* be the provider for libGL.so, but MesaGL. Else
end up with binaries that work only on/for nvidia users.
You fail to see that libGL.so is a dead link on systems which don't have
Mesa GL installed. That alone is already a bug - Mesa GL is not
required by any package in all of Fedora, and that's because the nvidia-
glx package replaces it.
So, requiring me to go install Mesa GL is already a bug.

Possibly a packaging bug... but IMO, not caused by the presence of
Mesa_GL. again, report it:
rpm -ql xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL* -p
How is this supposed to work?
/usr/lib/libGL.so.1 takes precedence over the
nvidia folder with the same lib.
Even if it didn't, relying on which libGL.so.1 came first
seems like a very fragile setup. I recall redirecting that link,
and it was still broken since apparently it chose the one in X11R6.
Then I redirected that one and it was restoring it on every ldconfig
until I got rid of the library itself.
Hence, Mesa GL conflicts with nvidia-glx.
Btw why is /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 there at all?
