nvidia-glx-ia32 only supports GeForce 6xxx+ series NVidia cards.

My Lenovo Thinkpad T61p has a Quadro FX 570M, and Google Earth works
 with the nvidia-glx-ia32 package installed and not without, so I
guess it supports cards other than that series.


I'd say it was definitive proof! :-)
I don't know what you are running, I'm presuming Squeeze as it's just a
dummy package with Wheezy and Sid.

I got that information from here:-
This version only supports GeForce 6xxx and higher of the Geforce
GPUs plus complimentary Quadros and nforce. Look at the legacy
packages for older cards.

See /usr/share/doc/nvidia-glx/README.txt.gz for a complete list of
supported GPUs and PCI IDs.

So I'm guessing that makes your card a "complimentary" Quadro.


“We gotta come to some new ideas about life folks ok? I'm not being
blase about abortion, it might be a real issue, it might not, doesn't
matter to me. What matters is that if you believe in the sanctity of
life then you believe it for life of all ages. That's what I hate about
this child-worship syndrome going on. "Save the children! They're
killing children! How many children were at Waco? They're killing
children!" What does that mean? They reach a certain age and they're off
your [beep] love-list? [beep] your children, if that's the way you think
then [beep] you too. You either love all people of all ages or you shut
the [beep] up.”
