Possibly. There is this remark at :

"Old Installs Conflicting
If either of nvidia-glx-legacy/nvidia-glx-new are installed a dotfile is
created in /lib/linux-restricted-modules/ . Even after these packages
are uninstalled the dotfile will remain and may frustrate efforts to use
the nvidia-glx package. See this [WWW] launchpad bug about the hidden
file not being removed when nvidia-glx-new is uninstalled (also applies
if nvidia-legacy is removed) for details."
