Default The last release to support GeForce2?

I just installed 1.0-7676 (via the FreeBSD port, and it says: "The NVIDIA GeForce2 GTS/GeForce2 Pro GPU" is no longer supported (sleekily worded to avoid "negative").

I now have to downgrade the driver, but am not sure, how far back to go...

What is the last release to support the older hardware? Thanks!

Oh, never mind. The port itself has an option:
Code:
make -DWITH_LEGACY_GPU_SUPPORT
which installs the 7174 instead of the new 7676.

Kudos to the port's maintainer, but no thanks to NVidia for pulling the rug from under me
