Question nvidia 96x drivers for 11.04


I am planning on upgrading to 11.04 from 10.10, but I am not sure of weather the nvidia 96x drivers are available or not.

So why don't you check the nVidia website and find out??

http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

Need more information than 96x, though...what is the exact model/number of the card?

any card that uses the 96 and 173 driver are NOT supported any more by nvidia
you MUST use the nouveau driver

also the OLD cards are NOT supported by X11 also
so you might not be able to even use it

i have a old Gforce2 mx 400 card that i have on a ScientificLinux6.1 install and i have to use the nouveau driver

I am using nVidia GeForce4 4400 on a Dell Latitude D800 .I did tried that driver when 11.04 first came out, but the graphic card was not properly supported .So I downgraded to 10.10. No I am not sure weather or not should I upgrade. Cause I hate to degrade it again.

Again, check the nVidia site for a driver, but as JohnVV said, that's an old card and may not have one.
