As I am only using a single head with my dual head card this is what I
am using, I am going to play with dual head sometime when I get a bit of
a chance. I basically have the same setup, 2.4.0-test10, the latest
debs, and the agpgart and the mga modules loaded, but one thing does
puzzle me, it the the mga module is not in use, So I don't think
something is quite right.

I have all these modules loaded.

Thanks for the help.
