    Default nvidia legacy drivers from Centos repos

    I have an old Nvidia Vanta lt card and I want to install the legacy driver, so I searched in the repos for some version. But seems that there is 3 different packages for nvidia drivers: dkms-nvidia-x11-drv, nvidia-x11-drv and nvidia-x11-drv-96xx. I googled a bit but didnt found anything useful, so I guess that 96xx are the legacy drivers, Is that correct?

    I think the Vanta is part of the TNT series so you would want 71.xx drivers.

    nvidia has got 3 legacy drivers:

    old DX7 cards up to gf2gts/pro (does NOT support newer xserver than 1.5!) - 71.86.11
    DX7 cards since gf2mx and all DX8 cards - 96.43.14
    GeForce 5 series - 173.14.22
