Default Unknown model - inno3d 7600gt agp

By chance I have found that my new Inno3d 7600GT AGP card is not identified neither in /var/log/Xorg.0.log file nor in /proc/driver/nvidia/cards/0 if the latest 173.14.12 driver is used. I just checked that using the old 96.43.07 driver, the same card is recognized flawlessly.

in 96.43.07:

/proc/driver/nvidia/cards/0
Model: GeForce 7600 GT

/var/log/Xorg.0.log
(II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA GPU GeForce 7600 GT at PCI:1:0:0 (GPU-0)


in 173.14.12:
/proc/driver/nvidia/cards/0
Model: Unknown

/var/log/Xorg.0.log
(WW) NVIDIA(GPU-0): Failed to determine GPU name
(II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA GPU Unknown (Unknown) at PCI:1:0:0 (GPU-0)


In fact I have not experienced any problem due to the unrecognized card, I just wish to report the phenomena. By the way, as an owner of a 7600gt (agp) card, is it worth using the latest drivers (optimized to newer cards) or is it better to use the drivers under 100.0.0?

Best regards,
Brazso

Same here with a Innovision 7300GT card.

maybe 100.xx and newer don't support AGP?

@hussam: your card is supported, even if the model name is reported as 'Unknown', which I'll look into. However, 173.14.xx is intended as a legacy driver series for use with NV3x GPUs, please use a more recent release.

I'm using the 185.18.29 driver now which works very nicely apart from the "unknown" thing.

@hussam: I apologize for taking so long to get back to you; I just checked the status of the bug filed a while ago to address this problem, and it looks like it should finally be fixed (for good, hopefully) in upcoming 195.xx series drivers.
