I just uploaded updates to the proprietary Nvidia driver set:
nvidia-legacy96 - FINAL update.
nvidia-legacy173 - updated
nvidia-legacy304 - NEW
nvidia-319.xx - updated
I'm dropping support for the 96.xx drivers after this update since I no
longer have any old hardware to test. (Sigh.) I will continue to update
the 173.xx and 304.xx versions.
If anyone wants to take over 96.xx (and 173.xx since I only have one AGP
GPU box left), you have my permission. nouveau should be plenty good
enough for these old GPUs.
For the impatient, get the unofficial archives here:
As always, I welcome testers to find any errors. Also, I could use some
help figuring out what to do with the new nvidia-modprobe and
persistenced utilities. Supposedly, these allow userspace swapping of
the nvidia module for multi GPU systems.
