Re: X server won't start
The latest legacy driver is version 7174. I have an original Geforce 256 and I don't have any problems with it. Also depending on your kernel version, you might have to patch the driver so it compiles properly. If you were using Gentoo, they would already apply the necessary patches for you but in this case, you should be able to get the patches off this forum. I have gotten the 7174 driver to compile on x86 using kernel 2.6.16 but it as yet still doesn't have a patch to compile on AMD64 using 2.6.16 although the 7174 driver does work on kernel 2.6.15 on AMD64.
