Default X.org 7.3 capable driver for Legacy cards?

I'm VERY happy to see that the "regular" driver is out for non-legacy cards and it's great and i love it. I'm wondering when the legacy driver will be out so i can use dual-monitor on my laptop that only has a MX420.

Thanks
JD

I expect updated legacy graphics driver builds to become available shortly. Likewise for the FreeBSD build of 100.14.19.

Thanks for the reply...I really wanna run X7.3 on all my systems and this is really the only thing stopping me. It's good though...hopefully by the time the legacy driver comes out, at least some of them will be fixed

All the readmes I can find say that the Quadro NVS 280 SD is supported by the linux 32bit 100.14.19 drivers. But when installing them it warns me that it is not supported and after install it fails to load saying:
Quote:
NVRM: The NVIDIA Quadro NVS 280 SD GPU installed in this system is
NVRM: supported through the NVIDIA 96.43.xx Legacy drivers. Please
NVRM: visit http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html for more
NVRM: information. The 100.14.19 NVIDIA driver will ignore
NVRM: this GPU. Continuing probe...
NVRM: No NVIDIA graphics adapter found!
The driver search says to use that driver.
Any advice?

The Quadro NVS 280 SD is an NV18 GPU based card, and is supported in the 96.43.xx legacy driver branch.
