Question Is the GeForce4 MX 440 a legacy GPU?


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, 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
Here's the lspci scan output for my graphics card:

:~$ lspci -nn | grep nV
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: 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.
