NVIDIA binary kernel module DKMS source (71xx legacy version)

This package builds the NVIDIA Xorg binary kernel module needed by nvidia-glx-legacy-71xx, using DKMS. Provided that you have the kernel header packages installed, the kernel module will be built for your running kernel and automatically rebuilt for any new kernel headers that are installed. The NVIDIA binary drivers provide optimized hardware acceleration of OpenGL applications via a direct-rendering X Server for graphics cards using NVIDIA chip sets. AGP, PCIe, SLI, TV-out and flat panel displays are also supported.

WARNING: This driver only works with xserver 1.4 that was included in Debian 5.0 (lenny). Newer xserver versions are not supported by NVIDIA. Use a free driver (nouveau or nv) instead or upgrade to nvidia-glx-legacy-96xx (if that still supports your GPU).

This legacy version is the last release that supports the following GPUs: RIVA TNT [NV4], RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro [NV5M64], RIVA TNT2/TNT2 Pro [NV5], RIVA TNT2 Ultra [NV5], Aladdin TNT2 [NV5], Vanta/Vanta LT [NV6], GeForce 256 [NV10], GeForce 256 DDR [NV10DDR], GeForce2 GTS/Pro [NV15], GeForce2 Ti [NV15DDR], GeForce2 Ultra (Bladerunner) [NV15BR], Quadro [NV10GL], Quadro2 Pro [NV15GL].

There are several "more modern" GPUs supported by this package, too, but the updated drivers in the newer legacy packages or the current nvidia-glx package usually provide more features and better support. Look at the other legacy packages for older cards.

See /usr/share/doc/nvidia-kernel-legacy-71xx-dkms/README.txt.gz for a complete list of supported GPUs and PCI IDs.
