Oldest supported Xorg/x11-server release in current drivers?
 
What is the oldest Xorg release that the current NVidia drivers support?

I am going back to Xorg-server 1.2 (Xorg 7.2) and need to re-base from there. The thing will be in a modern distribution and 2.6.31.1x kernel, it's just the Xorg server (with minimal non-video drivers) and xterm that I need to keep back.

The driver works fine on Xorg 1.4.1 here.

Theoretically, the driver supports all the way back to XFree86 4.0.1. In practice, you may have better luck with XFree86 4.1 or 4.2. xorg-server 1.2 is very new compared to that. :)

Thank you. That's good news. It turns out that the Xorg sources are not really liking being relocated at compile time. I might want to try a chroot here.

Another question: is the kernel module the same as long as kernel and NVidia driver package are the same? In other words, if I had one Xorg7.4 and one Xorg7.2 tree, each with the NVidia drivers on top, I could switch between them without reinstalling the drivers, right?
