Changing the output of lspci


Okay I've been messing around with some IRC scripts and one of them X-Sys, is one of those scripts that dsiplays system information, however, when I get to the part about the video card, it displays:
Code:
video[nVidia Corporation: Unknown device 0322 (rev a1)]
Which is what it says in lspci:
Code:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation: Unknown device 0322 (rev a1)
How can I tell my computer I have a GeForce FX 5200?

There's a file called pci.ids that comes
with the kernel ... put the most recent
one into /usr/share

If that doesn't "fix" the problem, get a
newer kernel.
If that doesn't "fix" the problem, your card
is too new for Linux ;)



Cheers,
Tink

I know its an old post, but I just got around to fixing it, so I wanted people to know how I did it provided they have the same problem.

Goto http://pciids.sourceforge.net/ to download the latest pci.ids file and, update the one you currently have as Tinkster said. Works fine for me now and
Code:
video[nVidia Corporation: Unknown device 0322 (rev a1)]
has changed to
Code:
video[nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5200] (rev a1)]
