Nvidia legacy - old MM build needed

Post by kingmoffa » Mon Oct 22, 2007 10:09 pm

Hi ,

I've just tried to resurrect an old minimyth (MM) machine into working order using the latest stable release of MM. The box used to run MM quite well but the CF card died a while ago.

Anyway , I have a problem as the Nvidia GeForce 2MX video card is causing me problems. Upon using telnet to gain access , X refuses to start and the below is present in the X log.
(WW) NVIDIA(0): The NVIDIA GeForce2 MX 100/200 GPU installed in this system is
(WW) NVIDIA(0): supported through the NVIDIA 1.0-96xx Legacy drivers.
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Please visit http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html for
(WW) NVIDIA(0): more information. The 1.0-9746 NVIDIA driver will ignore
(WW) NVIDIA(0): this GPU. Continuing probe...
(EE) No devices detected.
I'm having trouble locating an older version of MM to use whilst I plan my next move. Does anyone has one or knows where I might find one?

MiniMyth can still be built with the legacy NVIDIA drivers.

I have uploaded a version of the latest test build built with the legacy NVIDIA drivers: 0.20.2-31b15.nvidia9639.

Pablo, I'm also trying to reuse an older GeForce2 MX card - is it possible for you to make that older version available? Thanks.

Oops. I forgot to post that I had uploaded a new version 0.21.0-47-nvidia-96.43.05. I was somewhat districted by my younger son's birthday party today.

Hi Pablo,

Please could you upload the latest version of 0.21 with nvidia legacy (if you have a version around).

The above link from april gives a 404.

Thanks in advance
