Default 7184 readme is wrong

http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...ppendix-a.html


specifically states my 2 cards in 2 different boxes are supported and they arent!
(WW) NVIDIA(0): The NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti 4200 GPU installed in this system is
(WW) NVIDIA(0): supported through the NVIDIA Legacy drivers. Please visit
(WW) NVIDIA(0): http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html for more
(WW) NVIDIA(0): information. The 1.0-9742 NVIDIA driver will ignore this
(WW) NVIDIA(0): GPU. Continuing probe...
(EE) No devices detected.

Fatal server error:
no screens found
Same with the Geforce4 mx420
dang don't move these cards to legacy yet!

According to the output you posted, you're running 1.0-9742, not 1.0-7184. The README is correct. Your NV2x GPU isn't supported in 1.0-9742.

Sorry the original topic was wrong but the fact remains...
http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...ppendix-a.html

Is from the 9742 and shows both my cards supported...
however it doesnt appear that they are.

Thanks for clarifying, you're correct the README needs to be updated. I've opened bug 266882 for that issue.

Thanks,
