Default Geforce 7950GT support in linux

Hello all,

I was wondering if the Geforce 7950 GT is supported in linux, because I can't find it on the product compatibility list ( http://www.nvidia.com/object/IO_18897.html ) on the nvidia website (or hasn't that been updated yet?)

But not in 1.0-9755? The confusion I think that we are having here is that multiple releases are pointing to the same support list, which is suspect IMO.

Could you please have someone inside NVidia update those pages to reflect any differences in support levels between the multiple releases?

Its also supported in 1.0-9755. Support is never removed. The driver README documents which GPUs are supported.

Thanks netlama. If you look at my posting for "05-13-07 02:27 PM" you will see that was a link that I posted. I am asking that Nvidia have someone update that web page (i.e., the supported gpu list linked from that web page) to reflect all GPU's supported versus requiring potential customers to download and extract tarballs just to answer basic support level questions.

If I'm simply blind and not really seeing the link on that web page properly, please indicate here, and I'll stand corrected.

There should be a line that reads GeForce 7950 GT with a specific device identifier that allows us to see that the card is indeed different from GX2 when looking at the files in /proc.

If I'm addressing this to the wrong forum, then let me know where I should send the request.

Thanks,
