Default Nvidia Legacy driver name

I have A PCI legacy card that I would like to use for triplehead conf with FX5200, but the last time I tryed, I was forced to use the same legacy driver for both cards, since they have the same module name... Is anyone aware of any workadound or of plans to rename the legacy driver in the near future?

Default Re: Nvidia Legacy driver name

The easiest way to use the an old tnt card or geforce card together with your fx5200 is to select the 'nv' driver for the old card. That should work fine but you won't get 3d support. Just renaming of the X driver and the kernel module is far from enough to make you want possible. Both kernel modules need to be aware of each other and work together for some tasks.
