Description

pkg contents -rm pkg://hipster-encumbered/video/ffmpeg | grep nvidia
depend fmri=pkg: type=require

This is an issue when you use an legacy graphic card not supported by the Nvidia driver v340.x

In my particular case, I'm using a Nvidia Quadro FX3500 and need to install manually nvidia driver 304.x.

When I do install ffmpeg, the v304.x is updated by the v340.x and next reboot, graphic interface doesn't work. I cannot doawngrade to v304 without removing ffmpeg.
