Mmm, you upgraded from 4.1.0 (woody) to 4.2.1.

You were using the proprietary matrox drivers, which where built for
4.1.0, and are incompatible with 4.2.1.

There was another thread on the same subject on this list a few days
ago, please read it.

Anyway, if i am not mistaken, you have two solution :

  o use the xfree86 provided mga driver.

  o upgrade your proprietary matrox drivers to 4.2.[01] ones.
