I own (a now admittedly old) GeForce4 MX 440 that should still be supported by the latest drivers as it's showing up on this page http://www.nvidia.com/object/IO_18897.html
, unfortunately trying to install the drivers via the official installer complains my GPU isn't supported and that I should be looking for the legacy drivers. And BTW my GPU doesn't appear in the list of supported cards for the legacy drivers at http://www.nvidia.com/object/1.0-718..._products.html
Here's the lspci scan output for my graphics card:
:~$ lspci -nn | grep nV
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller : nVidia Corporation NV17 [GeForce4 MX 440] [10de:0171] (rev a3)
As you can see it has a 0x171 PCI ID which should be supported. I am trying to set it up under Ubuntu Feisty. I tried Ubuntu's latest glx packages and setup scripts but got the same error log the nVidia installer gave me. The legacy glx packages work though... I am confused. Hopefully this problem is distro related.
Thanks in advance.
