Re: NVidia 96.xx.xx & 173.xx.xx Legacy drivers donít work in Ubuntu 12.04
I'm also waiting for 96.xx driver to be updated.
Maybe NVIDIA should open source their drivers for old hardware, so we (community) could work on them? At least those parts of code which aren't patented or protected by NVIDIA for some reason. I'm sure most problems (incompatibility with newer X versions) we see, do not require rewriting big chunks of driver code, but only little part that is responsible for I/O communication with operating system, that is not covered by any patented technology.
