And what a long strange trip it's been.......

O.K. I downloaded the XF 4.1 source and built that
"pure" and with Matrox supplied source and both
I built new mga.o for the kernel from both pure kernel
source and from the DRM link you sent and now receive:
(EE) MGA(0): [drm] MGADRIScreenInit failed (DRI
version = 4.0.0, expected 3.0.x).  Disabling DRI.
for both builds.
I'm crunching thru this w/ my matrox savvy friend but
will appreciate any input you may have, and again
thank you!
