96.43.19 and XOrg 1.10.1
1 Attachment(s)
Hi all,

Recently, Debian has upgraded it's XOrg to 1.10.1, and after the upgrade I'm no longer able to start X on my older Debian box with the 96.43.19 drivers. A quick google with the error message shows that it's because the ABI has changed and the drivers are no longer working under the new XOrg.

May I know when a patch to fix this problem or a new version of drivers for the GeForce4 cards will be released? Upgrading the vidcard is not an option for now.

Attached is my XOrg log, just in case.

Any news on 96.43.xx release with Xorg 1.10 support?

Frankly, I've already given up. I'm planning to overhaul my Media Center PC soon, and the old Linux box can have the old MCPC's mobo, video card, CPU and RAM. It's a shame tho, the box is still usable as ever even though the CPU and GPU is a bit on the slouchy side (Athlon XP 1800+ and GeForce4 440MX 8X respectively). Sure, I have a new Linux box, but the idea was to use this new one heavily for virtualization experiments, and the other one for development tasks.

The one thing I hate about the above plan is that I have to reinstall everything- It requires a new HDD since the current machine runs off rather ancient ATA-IDE hard disks and the MCPC mobo uses SATA instead, and that I need to change distro to x86_64 from x86, so using Clonezilla is a no-go.

And oh, I hope the video card works with the 270.26 drivers. It has trouble working with drivers newer than 197.45 in Windows, hence the decision to overhaul. Card is a Biostar GeForce G210.

I also await an update for this driver to support 1.10

Still no news. Which is okay. I've done the transfer and now won't bother anymore.

Although I still had to downgrade the video card since the Biostar GeForce 210 doesn't want to work with 270.45 for whatever reason (in fact, it won't even work with 270.45, or anything newer than 197.45 under Windows). In the end I'm using an older Biostar 8400GS which works like a charm.

Now in the market for the required mobo/vidcard for my MCPC. Difficult because I can't find the Asus M4N78 Pro anywhere!

My Debian (testing) is now without 3D acceleration, no Google Earth :(

Please guys, update 96.xx.xx drivers for Linux.

I have reverted back to the stable XORG and company for my legacy MX440 to work...

I have exactly the same problem. If I only knew WHEN an updated 96.xx driver will be out. I am thinking of deleting my laptop's HDD and installing old distro from scratch .. what is really a lot of work .. but I need 3D support. :(

I can't promise a date, but I'm working on getting a new release out as soon as I can.

Thank you very much AaronP. It is very good to know someone is working on it.

Aside of promising exact date or anything, can you estimate the time frame it would take?
I mean days, weeks, months ... at least a rough estimation please. Thank you for your time!
