Leadtek A7600 GT (AGP) not supported ?
I installed 1.0.8774 and 1.0.9625 on Kubuntu Dapper x86 and both driver work fine with my old FX5900 but won't recognize the Leadtek A7600 GT.
The Xorg.log reveals:

(--) PCI:*(1:0:0) nVidia Corporation unknown chipset (0x02e0) rev 162, Mem @ 0xf6000000/24, 0xc0000000/28, 0xf5000000/24, BIOS @ 0xf7ce0000/17

Is there a way to force the driver to recognize it (like on windows) or do I have to wait for a patch or new version ?

Please advice.

Re: Leadtek A7600 GT (AGP) not supported ?

somehow, the xorg.conf file was overwritten, after switching the cards, to use the "nv" driver. This driver was failing as it didn't know the pci id.
Thankfully there was a backup of my old xorg.conf and the 1.0.9625 driver works fine.

May this be a ubuntu hotplug functionality ?

The driver's identification of the videocard occurs much further down in your X log. What you're seeing is your distribution's PCI hardware database, which seems to be behind.

The GeForce 7600 is fully supported by 1.0-8774 & 1.0-9625.

I have a similar probleme, I have a Leadtek 7600 GT and OpenSuse 10.1, the driver installez fine and sax2 shows that 3d is enabled but in reallity glxgears gives me a poor 10-20 fps.

Can someone give me a hand here ?

glxgears is not a benchmark. Which real world OpenGL applications are not performing to your expectations? Please generate and post an nvidia-bug-report.log along with the output from glxinfo.
