Um, I am sorry, but what happened to the legacy nvidia drivers? They were what was enabling direct rendering for me, and now they are just gone I tried installing the 96xx driver from nvidia's site, but their package just fails to build the nvidia module (something I encounter for the first time btw). It's not that I urgently need this feature, but it's a little annoying to know that it is no longer present, blocking the system's 3D video capabilities.

NVIDIA doesn't provide good support for the legacy drivers. They regularly break with new kernel and X server versions. We don't have the time to fix issues in three different versions of a proprietary driver, just because NVIDIA is unable to release a unified driver. Therefore, we decided to drop support for the legacy drivers completely.

We intend to re-add 3D acceleration support using the open-source nouveau driver. If you need acceleration before that, you need to search for patches to fix the legacy nvidia drivers on your own.

Thanks for that explanation I think I'll rather wait for your solution instead of messing things even more...

Hello, I'm resurrecting this theme just to say thank you, I don't know how, but the new nvidia-glx copes with my rusty card and DRI is back again! No need of those legacy crap and etc
