I have the new Matrox G450 card and have copied the new driver to
mga.o but am unable to get the xfree86-4 server to boot...just hangs a
blank screen. The driver readme says it supports the g450 card.
Has anyone got this card working in 4.0 or any clues on how you
got the G400 to work. My xserver works fine with the ATI 128 pro card.
