Public bug reported:

Ongoing problem (for nearly one year) with nvidia drivers not installing 
properly with Trusty.
Xorg updates have broken nvidia support for this card.
I've asked questions and filed reports to no avail and no solutions.
NV7900 card, nv304 driver.
Not getting direct rendering nor openGL
On this same system Sparky Linux loads nv304 properly but Trusty does not.

I've tried using AskUbuntu but they are purging all my requests.
