It does bring the API up to 2.0. The error isn't too important, so
forcing it will be ok as long as you keep using the nvidia-driver as it
provides its own libnvidia-wfb.so. For some reason, libwfb.so isn't
installed on your system. It's provided by xorg-server.
You're not the first person to report it, but I can't reproduce it here.
