Just added the two new nvidia legacy drivers 96.43.07 71.86.06 as default in sgfxi. I assume nvidia will be releasing a new standard driver very soon as well, 177.13 does not work on 2.6.26 kernel.

These install on 2.6.26 kernel.

By the way, for smxi users, you can now install 2.6.26-0 sidux kernel using the old -K option, like so: smxi -K

This will show the experimental/testing kernel in advanced kernel install options, along with the archived older ones. It will still show the regular current apt kernel in the default kernel install.

If you don't start with -K, it won't show the testing kernel. -K is for 'advanced kernel install', and hasn't been active for a while, but now it's back in, at least as long as sidux uses that type of format.

For now, you can just manually install the legacy driver to 2.6.26, like so: sgfxi -co 96.43.07
until nvidia releases their new standard driver.

NOTE: not all modules for 2.6.26 are building, that's why this is only an advanced kernel install option, but most are.
