Yes, likely! The file I read belonges to the package "nvidia-kernel-source",
you find it in /usr/share/doc/nvidia-kernel-source.
Please allow me to add the related content:
nvidia-graphics-drivers (177.80-1) unstable; urgency=low
LEGACY GPUs: If you have a GeForce FX (any model), GeForce PCX (any model),
Quadro FX 330/500/600/700/Go700/1000/Go1000/1100/1300/2000/3000,
Quadro NVS 280 PCI, Quadro NVS 280 PCI-E, i.e., any GPU based on the
NV30/NV31/NV34/NV35/NV36/NV37/NV38 chips or a variant thereof,
DO NOT INSTALL THIS RELEASE!!! Use the nvidia-glx-legacy-173xx,
nvidia-glx-legacy-173xx-dev, nvidia-kernel-legacy-173xx-source packages
And additionally my output of lspci:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV36.1 [GeForce FX 5700
Ultra] (rev a1)
It is NV36.1, and (moah, shame on me!!!) , I just see, it is not GF7300, but

....and it is legacy, sigh! So I really need the legacy drivers, which cannot
be build as I described in my very first post.
With great shame
