If you haven't done so already, then get the source code to kernel
2.4.0-test9.  I compiled support for my AGP chipset directly into the
kernel, and I recommend compiling the matrox DRI support as a module.  I
may be wrong, but it seems that, at least in the past, the X server liked
to load the kernel module itself.  After installing the new kernel and DRI
module, remember to reboot.

Dexter, the X configuration program that ran when I installed the most
recent debs, made a fairly good approximation of an XF86Config-4 file for
me.  Make sure that you add the following lines:

Section "DRI"
    Mode 0666

I think that's about all I did to get hardware-accelerated OpenGL.
