325.15 Says it supports Geforce FX 5500 GPU when it DOES NOT!!!

Searched for the new Geforce FX 5500 GPU driver today, turned out to be 325.15! Imagine my happy face ( :D ). Then imagine me attempting to install it on my old Linux box, and see my happy face turn to utter ANGER! You LIED!?!?!? REALLY? The message from the installer itself says that it DOES NOT SUPPORT the Geforce FX 5500 GPU and to search for the 173.14.xxx driver instead! (UTTER DISGUST)! All the while the download page for 325.15.xxx DOES SAY that it supports it.

SO WHO IS LYING TO ME?

Sounds like it was probably just a mistake. The GeForce FX 5500 does need the 173.14.* legacy driver series. Do you have a link to the page with the incorrect information?

When in doubt, check the table in the README: http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/334.16/README/supportedchips.html

http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/64838/en-us

check the “Supported Products” tab.

Thanks! I’ll let the web team know.
