glx-diversions 0.6.0 breaks xgreeters (with nVidia 340.93-2)

For those of you who are experiencing this bug (and can get internet access from another system!),
the problem is ... permissions.
Solution: Add (as root) your xgreeter group to the video group.
Code: Select all
adduser <xgreeter group> video

where <xgreeter group> is whatever you are using. E.g.:
  1. Debian-gdm (probably the default for many)
  2. lightdm (as in my case)
  3. sddm
  4. the equivalent xdm and so on (kdm seems not to be affected)
