Default GeForce2 with PCI ID 010f

I've recently gotten a secondhand Nvidia card to install in my girlfriend's computer. She wants to be able to run simple 3-d programs like Google Earth and the Via chipset that her motherboard came with doesn't have good driver support under Linux. Because Nvidia does supply drivers which support 3-d acceleration for Linux, I figured that the GeForce2 card which my father had just taken out of his computer would be a good card to use.

However, I am having some troubles getting the 3-d to work. I'll go into these in more detail if necessary, but first I wanted to check a couple of basic things. Doing lspci shows it to be an Nvidia GeForce2 MX/MX400. However, it shows it to have PCI ID 010f, not 0110. I don't see any card with a PCI ID of 010f listed under the supported list for either the mainline or the legacy driver. Does this mean it's unsupported? If it is supported, should I be using the legacy driver? That's what I would assume since the 0110 version uses the legacy driver, but I thought that I would double check.

Default Re: GeForce2 with PCI ID 010f

I haven't seen that id myself before either but I expect it to be a standard Geforce1 (NV10) based GPU. These gpus only had 2bits for numbering (e.g. 0x100 Geforce256 , 0x101 Geforce256 DDR, 0x103 Quadro). The id is quite strange but if the nvidia drivers have been written in a proper way it should get detected. The last driver to support it is 1.0-7184 also called 'legacy' driver.

Thanks for the prompt response. I've done a little more research and figured out that I was misreading the data from lspci. Essentially, the proper PCI ID is 01de:0110, i.e. a GeForce2 MX/MX 400. However, there's some subsystem which has PCI ID 010f. I'm not sure what that is, but it's probably not relevant. However, what was happening is that because lspci was detecting that subsystem, but wasn't recognizing it, it was printing out that PCI ID. Because it did recognize the 0110 ID, it was not printing it out directly, but rather automatically translating it to "GeForce2 MX/MX 400". When I ran lspci -n I get the correct number, 0110.

So, if I understand things correctly, that means that I can use the 96xx legacy driver or the 71xx legacy drivers. I have been unable to get either set of drivers to install and work properly, but I will start a new thread about that.
