Bad news if you have a legacy card, like my nv34 nvidia fx5200

it is fair to assume compatibility with kernels > 3.11 is DEAD and not coming back on any distro that uses

Xorg server >1.13

untested patch

You should be able to run nvidia 173 on:

long term supported Xubuntu 12.04 (I am on it now)

puppy linux racy [with some work]

legacy os (puppy based)
