Phil, I have a G400 and 3d is working perfectly for me at this point.
All the GL screensavers and armagetron work great and fast.
I seem to have all the 126.96.36.199 sid xfree packages including
xlibmesa-gl and xlibmesa-glu. I did knock my screen resolution down to
1600x1200 and my color depth to 16 based on a recent post pointing out
that bad things happen when you exhaust the memory on your G400.
Oh, yeah, I'm using the stock mga_drv.o, not the one from Matrox.
