nvidia_legacy_96xx install version the nvidia driver 96.43.16.

manually installing nvidia driver 96.43.20 (latest) from the site solve the warning, but still some problem in getting 3D acceleration.

3d acceleration solved, manually tweaking DETAILS file and modify from 96.43.16 to 96.43.20 worked for me, recasting mesalib with only dri and swrast enabled and recast nvidia (after the modification version 96.43.20), putting Module section in xorg.conf as stated in NVIDIA-GLX documentation dolved the 3D acceleration problem.

The only modifications is in DETAILS modified VERSION=96.43.20
I didn't know how to modify the SOURCE_HASH= line so i answer n to the abort request due to the has verification.

The other note on mesalib might be appropriate to put in a wiki page about nvidia on Sourcemage but they were told me on IRC #SourceMage, if i remember well by Stealth

oh, so it's only about version? fine

it must be fixed in z-rejected with ( commit:09f7daff99149e73051b6101aeafe1de7a0305d5 ) and updated on our mirrors in 6 hours.

I'm marking this bug as resolved then.
