Nvidia GeForce 6/7 are now "legacy support"

Postby zerozero on Thu Sep 13, 2012 9:35 am

the current 304.* nvidia driver will be the last to actively support the Geforce 6 and GeForce 7 graphic cards; as soon as nvidia moves to a new mainline driver the cards above will be supported by a new legacy branch (304 legacy driver)
support (as in critical bug fixes and kernel&X support) will last until 2017.
Once 304.* becomes a legacy branch (i.e. when official support moves to a future branch), support for new Linux kernels and X servers, as well as fixes for critical bugs, will be included in 304.* legacy releases through the end of 2017.

please refer to this page to know exactly the cards affected

and here the full list of legacy drivers and the supported cards

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Still much better than AMD, who have already dropped even kernel & X support for my HD4850 (2 generations newer than the GeForce 6/7 series)
