Please note that rpm doesn't care, or even look at, what is actually on
your disk. It only looks at its database, and since the nvidia drivers
are no longer distributed as rpms, it doesn't find those libs.

The programs should work fine regardless, if you install with --nodeps
(assuming that is the only problem you see when you try to install)

The solution (workaround) to this is to create a dummy (empty) rpm,
which "Provides" so rpm can see it.
